Lemme know if there’s still hope?

`

In a previous post… whilst speculating about Donald J. Trump’s motivation for squirreling away classified documents within his gaudy, golden digs (aka his unsecured, Mar-a-Lago, moat-less castle), the most logical conclusion turned out to be his insatiable greed.

ASIDE #1: Seeing how the bigoted, deplorable Dumb Donald (in the role of acting prez), had once spitballed the insane notion of dredging a moat all along the U.S. / Mexico border and, worse yet, stocking it with ravenous, razor toothed alligators and slithering, sharp fanged, venomous snakes; all fully capable of maiming / slaughtering any asylum seekers… well… one would’ve expected him to secure his own manor’s border in that manner; especially since he must’ve been aware of ex-FBI-er Peter Strzok fingering Mar-a-Lago as a foreign spy magnet; seeing how Chinese spy, Yujing Zhang, had actually, quite easily breached that very estate.

So… ahem… need anyone say anything more? Uh, make that a yes; do check out a few more details to my believable, Trump-sells-out America theory…

For instance, it’d be absolutely in character, were we to witness him auctioning off uber-sensitive state secrets to his highest bidders (aka his best buddies and America’s sworn enemies). In the end, he would not only wind up cashing in, avariciously, but also lashing out, revoltingly, against America’s 18th century Founding Fathers and the slew of 21st century investigators taking a look-see into his shady shenanigans, all of whom he detests deep down to his (allegedly) human DNA.

We’re speaking of investigators, such as the FBI’s Director (Trump’s own appointee) Christopher A. Wray and the Department of Justice’s Attorney General Merrick Garland. And lest we forget, Donny is also harboring a ferocious grudge against the [1] U.S. House Select Committee’s members (inclusive of two Republicans) who’ve been exposing every aspect of his nefarious January 6th attempted coup, [2] U.S. Congresspersons who had impeached him (twice), and [3] each and every American (I among them) who had wisely voted against him (both in 2016 and 2020).

In today’s post… whilst speculating, anew, I did come up with, yet, another scenario; how Trump could also, quite easily, further (ab)use these ill-gotten classified documents as LEVERAGE; playing these documents not unlike stay out of jail trump cards; his way, at least within his own (alleged) mind, of ensuring that, up till the very day he takes his final, Hell-ward bound, downward escalator ride, he’ll never, ever face down his long overdue, Earthly comeuppance.

ASIDE #2: Sadly, we could take little comfort, even were the FBI and National Archives to report they’ve retrieved and re-secured all of the missing top secret materials. Such a dubious claim would not preclude the all too real possibility that Trump would’ve had plenty of time to make photocopies and secrete them at… well… for now… only Donny and God know where.

ASIDE #3: Naturally, IF that “where” is where the sun don’t shine, it’d behoove the Feds to order up a colonoscopy. And, based upon Donny’s fondness for “burying” documents “at sea”, the FBI ringing up Roto-Rooter to ream out Mar-a-Lago’s sewer pipes, wouldn’t be a bad idea, either.

So, just how might that Trumpian LEVERAGE go down?

Well, suppose that one or more of these Top Secret documents would totally expose an American Achilles heel; instantaneously render the entire homeland vulnerable to full blown, nuclear attacks?

One could easily envision the temper tantrum throwing, retired fake prez, in full blown, male Karen mode; engaging in a ranting and raving stand-off with the Feds; his bullhorn mashed up to his (sink ships) loose lips, bleating out his terrorist demands.

Now, WHAT IF the one and only way to stop him from publicly revealing such vulnerabilities / avoid such a global holocaust, would be for the Feds to cave into the following, utterly unreasonable and insane, lemme-do-whatever-I-GD-please-or-else Trumpian terms / ultimatum…

You guys have absolutely no other choice but to…

  • forfeit/fork over all of Fort Knox’s gold to me,
  • reinstall me as a non-term limited president
  • cancel all future fed, state and local elections,
  • establish, in their stead, my Trumpian dynasty,
  • round up / lock up each and every Democrat
  • deport or execute all of the people I hate*

*non-whites, non-straits, non-binary individuals, non-Christians, atheists / agnostics, the aged and ailing, feminists, Democrats, liberals, progressives, critical thinkers, et al.

Alleged, mucked up thoughts from the alleged mind of Donald J. Trump?
`

Long Sigh…

It’s damned near impossible to come up with anything even remotely resembling an “everybody lives happily after” epilogue to what already seems destined to become the final sentence of the final paragraph to the final chapter of American History.

WP Readers, please lemme know if you believe there’s still hope for better days within America.

PLEASE? PRETTY PLEASE?

So… How Would the Remainees React?

`

Suffice to say, ever since has-been Trump took his downward escalator ride, he has been doing his damnedest to take down America / the entire world. Along the way, he has been pandering, primarily, to his absolutely irrational and uncivil voter base; i.e., winning them over to his side simply by exploiting and validating their hopeless ignorance and hardcore bigotry.

In all likelihood, his staunch supporters (mindless cultists, Borg drones, etc.), obsess, daily / hourly over how best to suck up to their Fascist Daddy. What more could anyone expect from those who’ve succumbed to no questions asked / allowed subservience. In extreme cases, some have even claimed they’d die on his behalf. And statistics don’t lie, seeing how…

“On Tuesday, the last full day of Donald Trump’s presidency, the [Covid-19] death toll reached 400,000 — a once-unthinkable number. More than 100,000 Americans have perished in the pandemic in just the past five weeks.”

National Public Radio News • Reported by Will Stone • January 19, 2021 [read more here]

Granted, Coronavirus deaths have spanned all ideologies, however a disproportionate chunk of the fatalities did prove to be Daddy Donny’s very own (and owned) anti-masker, infantile whiners.

Let’s now delve deeper into the power of Trump’s unappetizing words (which make normal people want to puke, YET, get Trumper drones salivating)…

“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters,”

Donald J. Trump • Sioux Center, Iowa • 23 January 2016 [read more here]
`

Keeping that in mind, let’s run down what is, THANK GOD, (so far), ONLY a thought experiment.

Suppose, in the not too distant future, Trump convenes one of his train wreck rallies where (in the midst of one of his lose-his-train-of-thought, rambling, utterly worthless, screechy speeches) he abruptly halts and barks out the command, “ATTACK!”

At that point, his armed to the teeth goon squad storms into the arena; roughs up, rounds up and marches out fifty percent of the attendees. When his speech resumes, DJT simply informs the remainees that, come sundown (local time), he will order his detainees’ mass execution.

So… How Would the Remainees React?

Sans even two critical thinking brain cells to rub together (and nary a tear shed for their detained, soon to be needlessly slaughtered / dead families and friends), each of his drones would have no choice but to conclude, “Oh well… he must’ve had a pretty damned good reason!” At that point each of them would, FIRST, cut Trump a give-till-it-hurts campaign contribution check and, NEXT, on cue, commence to bleating out…

“USA!… USA! … USA! … USA! … USA! … USA!…” (translation)
“Sieg Heil! … Sieg Heil! … Sieg Heil! … Sieg Heil! … Sieg Heil! … Sieg Heil! …”

Trumper Nazi Drones • c2015 – 22 (and beyond)

Ironic, indeed, seeing how mindless absolutism has absolutely nothing in common with what the genuine United States of America stands for.

“I was told…” Quick Limerick

`

Preface: When we become ear and eyewitnesses to aired and streamed interviews, particularly of the political nature; especially in our troubled times; all too frequently the guests who appear speak in the passive voice; lean far to heavily on that “I was told…” telltale, damning phrase. Far worse, are these programs’ talking heads / moderators, who fail to lean back on their guests by countering with the vital question, “Who told you?”

`

To frankness, fascists feel no obligation
They favor “I was told…” type obfuscation
Such telltale passive voice grammar
To truth and facts acts as hammer
Oft leading to liberty’s obliteration

Borg Queen Trump

Subtitle: Resistance is Futile?

`

Perhaps you rarely, if ever, venture anywhere near the strange new worlds found within the Star Trek multiverse? If so, that’d place you amongst the few who’ve yet to view the The Best of Both Worlds; screenplay writer Michael Piller’s season three and four, two parter; still ranked by many fans as that franchise’s greatest story ever told.

To bring any non-Trekkers up to warp speed, a Wikipedia essay will both provide the storyline and “flesh” out who (what) the Borg are. By the by, I’m labeling this link SPOILER ALERT (my last-ditch caveat to anyone who might now be considering a first time viewing).

Of course, one needn’t be a Sci-Fi fan to know that Star Trek storytellers are renown for utilizing their futuristic narratives to draw parallels; to exquisitely expose / cast aspersions on the perpetrators / perpetuators of present day, indefensible, malignant societal scourges.

And, speaking of scourges, aka PTD’s (Politically Transmitted Diseases), let’s check out a few similarities to deplorable un-American present day, realities; namely…

How Donald J. Trump bears a striking resemblance to the Borg Queen.

Both entities are autocratic head cases. Externally they have folically challenged scalps and, internally, boast mucked up / scrambled brains. Worse yet, they command massive, ever-growing legions of cultists / drones; all hellbent on assimilating / enslaving each and every free spirit they encounter. In the end, all that’s left is their human wreckage; a retrograde society built, solely, upon the dismal, rickety foundation of mandatory, “resistance is futile”, no questions asked / allowed, mindless compliance.

Without giving away too much of The Best of Both World’s plot, eventually, acting Captain William Riker finds himself just about to issue his futile, last-ditch, save planet Earth / humanity orders; on the verge of commanding helmsman Ensign Wesley Crusher to kamikaze the U.S.S. Enterprise D into the enemy Borg cube / starship when… when…

Well, I did vow not to tell all…

Suffice to say, with heavy heart, I can apply such scenes to America’s glum 2024 “future”; predict that the never punished Donald J. Trump will run for his second term; where win or lose, humanity loses.

In other words… where Borg Queen Donny…

  • In defeat, will order his “human” drones to burn down America
  • In victory, will deploy his Space Force army to attack America

“The armed forces consists of six service branches: the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Space Force, and Coast Guard.”

Google Search • Read More Here (BTW, Space Force was Trump’s own cockamamie creation).
`

Whatever the 2024 outcome, freedom lover Tom CANNOT and ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT live like that; all of which not only succinctly sums up my resolve… correction… my flat-out defiance of all things Trump… but could also, easily, become my own epitaph.

Indeed, once the rolled out Trumpian tanks near my hometown’s city limits; the very nanosecond that rumbling racket is within my earshot, that’d mean there’d be no hope left. At that juncture, futilely so, I’d block their path; i.e., lie right smack dab in the middle of Michigan Avenue; double daring that lead tank commander asshole to smash my atoms into the asphalt.

Call that my own William Riker Moment, too, for, obviously, my one, soon-to-be corpse could no more halt a tank than an Enterprise D head-on crash could ever halt a Borg Cube.

The only good part of such scenarios? Be screenplays Sci-Fi or Real Life, the well written ones can and oft do offer up unexpected plot twists; in the political context, that could be courtesy of a willy-nilly patchwork of Republicans who, for fleeting moments, might manage to muster the facade of decency, heroism and patriotism.

After all, on January 6 and 7, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence did flat-out defy Borg Queen Donald J. Trump; flip off his tyrant boss’s orders to unconstitutionally install him and demolish American Democracy; in essence proving…

Resistance Is NOT NECESSARILY Futile!

A Non-Electrified Electorate

`

President Joe Biden is gambling that trotting out his 2020 Boogeyman Trump Gambit can work wonders in snagging him the very second term that he, originally, claimed he’d not be seeking; can also smokescreen his chronically abysmal, job approval ratings; perhaps, even induce a bad case of political amnesia re his baffling, bizarre propensity for foolishly, flagrantly breaking campaign promises.

Granted, the man has been rendered dysfunctional, discourtesy of a recalcitrant, politically emasculating U.S. Senate, BUT, his resorting to the ballsy issuance of Executive Orders (to legally circumvent his foes) could also work wonders. As for why he opts not to make his pen mightier than their legislative sword? Well, I suppose you’d have to ask him.

From the Buyers’ Remorse Department: I personally find Daddy Joe treating me like a child; his resorting to fear inculcating, manipulative mind games both abusive and insulting.

So long as we’re on the subject of trepidation, what Daddy Dearest is failing to fear, personally, is the following, likely, fearsome Election Day 2024 outcome; i.e., IF he insists on going the tired, tried and untrue, Trump / Biden rematch route…

  • Donald Dunce will, once again, wind up an Electoral College “graduate”
  • Not because he’d ever impress the Dems, progressives and indie voters
  • Nope, that’ll be due to duly disillusioned, PO’d citizens not voting at all
  • Despot Donny’s Democracy Demolishing Dynasty will be a Done Deal

And that’s honesty, not hyperbole. Considering Tyrant-O-Saurus Rex‘s January 6th attempted coup in 2021, what adult in the room would actually expect term limits to ever Oval Office oust him, come January 20th in 2029?

ALAS, blind ambition has been blinding Biden to how much he’s been utterly failing to electrify the electorate; so much so that We the People, of late, have been (justifiably so), characterizing the Trump v. Biden rematch, thusly:

`

Donald v. Joe

Grumbler v. Bumbler
Reckless v. Feckless
Insolent v. Indolent
Grumpy v. Chumpy

Scrooge v. Stooge
Scrappy v. Crappy
Insanity v. Inanity
Drastic v. Spastic

Brawny v. Yawny
Creepy v. Sleepy
Goring v. Boring
Fucker v. Sucker

Holder v. Folder
Craver v. Caver
Grifter v. Drifter
Asshole v. Vole

Memorial Day (Catch) 22

Good citizens need not even near a savvy, savant status
in order to achieve the true blue spirit of Memorial Day.
Honestly educated, everyday Janes and Joes are able to
venerate valiant Americans who, throughout our nearly
2½ century history, selflessly served their country as the
sentinels and saviors of disciplined democracy, essential
liberty and basic happiness; soldiers who, in a heartbeat,
were always ready, willing and able to make the ultimate
sacrifice on behalf of their contemporaries and posterity!
Ironic, how this spirit of inclusion even extends outward
to ignorant, ignoble ingrates; e.g. today’s MAGA maniacs,
who utterly fail to savor Genuine America’s robust flavor;
savages who only feel ferocious fealty for their false god;
his sole, soulless intent: To trump Freedom with Fascism.
