Donald Trump: Despotic Madman

 

As the GOP more and more begins to be equal to DJT, they are losing their credibility as a legitimate political party. Much to their profound shame and eternal embarrassment, republicans are now identified as book burners, election deniers, liars, bigots, misogynists, fascists, and traitors. They defend the immorality and criminal behavior of a despotic madman and gleefully endorse the candidacy of a complete moron.


Regardless of your political affiliation, you must look at the facts and reality of the current situation in our country. Whether you are conservative or liberal, whether you like Biden or not, you must look objectively at trump and see the truth of his character.


Trump is a liar, a cheat, and a thief. He is corrupt, dishonest, and incompetent. He is a bigot and a fascist. He is a criminal. He is a sick, pathological, narcissistic, despotic madman with nefarious intentions.


He abused his power as president and he plans to do it again. He used his position for personal gain. He has obstructed justice at every turn. He has broken the law multiple times and plans to do it again. He completely mismanaged the covid crisis and caused millions of deaths. He has pardoned real criminals and has attacked innocent citizens. He has given huge tax breaks to the wealthy and cut benefits to the working class. He has violated the rights of women, children, blacks, minorities, gays, and the disabled. He has disrespected veterans and the military. He has colluded with foreign agents. He has compromised national security. He incited an insurrection. He is a traitor to his country.


He is entirely self-serving and egotistical and only cares about himself. He has zero regard for the American people and no concern for serving the needs of US citizens. None of his dimwitted supporters have even noticed that he has not uttered a single word about how he plans to help the average American.


Currently, on the campaign trail, his rhetoric is becoming more fascist and authoritarian. He is paying homage to hitler, putin, and other dictators. He has made countless anti-democratic and un-American remarks.


He is a clear and present danger. He must be stopped in his tracks. He deserves to be in prison.
 

 

Donald Trump: Friend of Putin

 

BREAKING NEWS:  Donald Trump has said he would “encourage” Russia to attack any of the US’s NATO allies whom he considers to have not met their financial obligations. He said he would encourage Russia to do “whatever the hell they want” to any NATO member country.


Trump Says He Gave NATO Allies Warning: Pay In or He’d Urge Russian Aggression. Trump said as president he had told NATO allies that he would urge Russian aggression against countries that had not met unofficial financial commitments.

 

The Joe Biden White House immediately rebuked Trump’s comments, saying in a statement: “Encouraging invasions of our closest allies by murderous regimes is appalling and unhinged – and it endangers American national security, global stability, and our economy at home.”

 

Ret Genl Wesley Clark, Former NATO Commander responded to Trump's remarks: "It is the kind of statement that can only come from a deranged and twisted mind. I do not say this lightly: The lives of every American, both in uniform and civilian, are at severe risk if Donald Trump wins this election."


Jens Stoltenberg, NATO’s secretary-general, also lambasted Trump’s comments. “NATO remains ready and able to defend all allies,” Stoltenberg said in a statement. “Any suggestion that allies will not defend each other undermines all of our security, including that of the US, and puts American and European soldiers at increased risk. I expect that regardless of who wins the presidential election the US will remain a strong and committed NATO ally."

 

Former British defense minister Tobias Ellwood offered his opinion: “It's arguably the most irresponsible comment that any former president has made on international security."

President Joe Biden said that Trump “is making it clear that he will abandon our NATO allies” and outlined the potential consequences of Trump’s comments. “Trump’s admission that he intends to give Putin a greenlight for more war and violence, to continue his brutal assault against a free Ukraine, and to expand his aggression to the people of Poland and the Baltic States are appalling and dangerous,” Biden said in a statement via his campaign.

 

 

 

Donald Trump: Enemy of the People

 

Most political, spiritual, and national leaders mark Christmas with reverence and a plea for peace, or by stressing the virtues of family and unity. But, that’s not Donald Trump’s style.  Instead, Trump unleashed a torrent of fury and bitterness. His holiday message took aim at his enemies and was littered with insults, name-calling, and false claims.  Here's the unholy central theme of Donald Trump's official Christmas message...  "May they all rot in hell!"


Donald Trump, twice-impeached and under FBI investigation, is seeking a second term as president.  Even with 91 felony counts and mounting legal problems, his supporters do not seem to see that he is unfit for office. Furthermore, they fail to understand that Trump intends to reign as a dictator.

 

In the style of Hitler and Mussolini, former President Donald Trump is attacking his political opponents in campaign speeches. Historians have suggested that trump's ramped-up rhetoric echoes authoritarian leaders of the past.

 

Trump has routinely praised foreign dictators, including Russian president Vladimir Putin, North Korean premiere Kim Jong Un, Turkish president Erdogan, and Chinese president Xi Jinping.  He not only admires them, he brags about having close personal relations with them. He regards them as friends.  Trump, it would appear, identifies with their governing style and seeks to be a authoritarian dictator himself.

 

As a candidate who aspires to the role of dictator, Trump is a real danger to our country, a menace to our society, a profound internal threat. And Americans must wake up the pure and simple fact that Donald Trump is the enemy of the people.

Trump’s Record of Failure and Lawbreaking Fails to Deter GOP Endorsements

 

"Trump is the most flawed person I know. The depths of his dishonesty are astounding."

-General John Kelly, Trump's Former Chief of Staff

 

Donald Trump has been branded “disgusting” and “worse by the day” by Republican rival Chris Christie. Trump was also rebuked by the White House for “echoing the grotesque rhetoric of fascists and violent white supremacists” and “threatening to oppress those who disagree with the government.”

 

Ruth Ben-Ghiat, NYU History Professional comments on Trump's disturbing behavior: "Fascists and authoritarians always want to do two things: They want to change the way that people see violence, making it into something necessary and patriotic and even morally righteous, and they want to change the way people see their targets. And so they use dehumanizing language. And former President Trump is doing both. He's been using his rallies since 2015 to shift the idea of violence into something positive. And now he's starting to use dehumanizing rhetoric, all these groups who live like vermin. And this is what the original fascists did. Hitler started talking about Jews as parasites in 1920."

More and more you can hear Trump mimic Nazi propaganda. He referred to his detractors as "vermin," a term regularly used by Hitler. He referred to undocumented immigrants as "poisoning the blood of our country."

 

In a recent rally in New Hampshire, Trump said, "We will root out the communists, Marxists, fascists, and the radical left thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our country, that lie and steal and cheat on elections, and will do anything possible, they will do anything, whether legally or illegally, to destroy America and to destroy the American dream."  He has threatened to use the power of the presidency against his political opponents, including President Biden and Biden's family.

 

"When you look cases, when you look at the verdicts and the judgements, it's clear that the common thread that runs through all of them is Donald Trump's lack of willingness to abide by the law, lack of commitment to the truth, and fundamental lack of character."
-Liz Cheney (R), Former US Representative

Trump will do to the LGBTQ community what Hitler did to the Jewish community

 

And he subsequently prompted further outrage at a gathering in Reno, Nevada, by comparing himself to the “great” Chicago Mafia boss Al Capone, griping that he has been indicted on more occasions than the notorious mobster. “Did anybody ever hear of the great great Al Capone, head of the mafia? He was a rough guy. I heard he was indicted once, but I was indicted four times.”

 

This notion of "rooting out" the vermin" is a common authoritarian theme. It is the rhetoric of dictators who are set on establishing a police state.  Make no mistake, nobody will be immune from the totalitarian rule of a despotic, narcissistic madman.

As a would-be dictator Trump is trying to change the view of violence. Since 2015, he has been using his rallies and campaign events for radicalizing people. And he started saying things like, "In the old days, we used to hurt people. The problem is, Americans don't hurt each other anymore."

 

Steven Levitsky, Professor of political Science at Harvard University, adds his warning: "The Republican Party is now clearly an authoritarian party. It embraces, condones, accepts, and promotes political violence and does not accept electoral defeat. Their glorification of the January 6 insurrection proves that they are okay with a violent seizure of power.  If they can't win elections fairly, they would rather end democracy."

 

UPDATE: In a bombshell decision, Colorado's Supreme Court ruled that Donald Trump's candidacy in the state's presidential primary next year is prohibited on constitutional grounds. The first-of-its kind ruling stems from a lawsuit that focused on Section 3 in the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution. "A majority of the court holds that Trump is constitutionally disqualified from holding the office of President," the ruling said. "And because he is disqualified, it would be a wrongful act to list him as a candidate on the presidential primary ballot."

 

THIS JUST IT: Maine also ruled that Trump is disqualified from holding office and appearing on the state's primary ballot under section 3 of the 14th Amendment over his role in the Jan. 6, 2021 assault on the US Capitol.

 

PENDING: The US Supreme Court has taken up the issue. They will rule on the question of whether a state can disqualify a presidential candidate.  We are awaiting their decision.

"Donald Trump would be the greatest threat to American democracy if reelected president."

-Liz Cheney


Trump is now going into a new phase of openly dehumanizing his targets so as to lessen the taboos against his future use of violence. Has expressed his plans for mass deportations, mass imprisonments, and giant camps. He is trying to make people less sensitive to violence, either committing it themselves or tolerating it.  The reason he's using this dehumanizing rhetoric now is to prepare people for his eventual dictatorship.

Trump has called himself a very proud election denier. It's been three years since he lost that 2020 contest. And we know he has still not conceded.  And we know also where the majority of Republicans and Republican-leaning voters stand in recent polls as recently as August: 69 percent of Republicans and Republican leaders say that Biden's win was not legitimate.

 

Trump, who once proclaimed, "I am the chosen one," has now also said, "I am your voice. I am your warrior. I am your justice. And for those who have been wronged and betrayed, I am your retribution."  And he is quick to add, "And, I will wield my power very aggressively."  He has even go so far as to clearly proclaim that he will be a "dictator on day one."

 

Like Hitler, Trump has called the press the enemy of the people. Like Hitler, Trump used racism to rise to power.  Like Hitler, Trump proposed mass deportation.  Hitler was an anti-Jew fascist.  Trump is an anti-Muslim nationalist.  Hitler promised to make Germany great again, while Trump promised to make America great again.  Trump blamed the Jews for Germany's problems.  Trump blames immigrants for the country's problems.  Like Hitler, Trump conducts political rallies year-round as a way to indoctrinate the masses. Hitler suspended the rule of law and Trump has continually ignored and obstructed the rule of law.  Like Hitler, Trump has packed the courts with extremist judges.

 

"I am the chosen one... I am your voice. I am your warrior. I am your justice. And for those who have been wronged and betrayed, I am your retribution. And, I will wield my power very aggressively."

-Donald Trump

"A narcissist wants the authority of a king, while having the accountability of a toddler."

 

The only thing worse than Donald Trump, are the many supporters of Donald Trump. Among some Republicans, there are supporters of Trump's agenda and those who are emulating his dictatorial style. We need to be very wary of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, and especially Speaker of the House Mike Johnson.  Even Michael Flynn and Sen. Tommy Tuberville have uttered some dangerous remarks in support of Trump and the need for an authoritarian state.

 

Trump has been impeached twice. He has lost the popular vote twice. He has been found liable for sexual abuse and defamation. He is the first former president to be criminally indicted, and the first to be federally indicted. He is under at least two other criminal investigations.

And beyond every out-of-touch, offensive, or even blatantly wrong thing Trump has said, the former president’s legacy is also connected to many of the crises of our time. With disastrous train derailments coming one after another, we are reminded that Trump deregulated the railroad industry and defanged environmental protection agencies. Amid the crash of institutions like Silicon Valley Bank, we are reminded that Trump’s own rollback of Obama-era Dodd-Frank regulations helped widen the doors to such a collapse. And amid attacks on basic civil rights, we are reminded that Trump helped ratchet up such viciousness.

Nevertheless, despite all of this—the social disharmony, the material suffering, even just the fact that this all hurts Republicans electorally—scores of Republicans are already endorsing Trump’s third consecutive bid for the White House anyways. In basic terms, these Republicans are signing off on, and even encouraging, more of the above.

 

“President Trump is an absolute threat to our democracy. His CEO-style dominance, his refusal to respect laws and precedent, his passion for revenge, manipulation, and outright dishonesty, make him a danger to the very Constitution that we Americans have fought and died for. He has maintained his overseas business dealings, taking money from foreign powers in ways that conflict with his duties as President; he has used government activities to direct business to his private real estate holdings; he has bent the Attorney General to becoming his personal lawyer to defend his personal misdeeds, he has used his power to pardon for his personal protection; and loaded his Administration with officeholders who took advantage of their positions for personal gain. It is difficult to find in American history a more corrupt Administration. And now he repeatedly refuses to say that he will respect the outcome of the election.”
-General Wesley Clark, former Supreme Commander of NATO

"We're all so tired. We're tired of people pretending he's not an idiot. We're tired of his lies. We're tired of his sickening amorality. We're tired of his face, his voice, his smirk. We're tired of his inability to say even one thing remotely kind or humble or appropriate, ever."
-Democratic Coalition, Never Trump

 

Meanwhile, some moderate, clear-headed Republicans, like  Liz Chaney, Adam Kinzinger, and Mitt Romney are vocal critics of Trump. We need to listen to them.  They have spoken out against Trump and issued their warnings.

 

Liz Chaney says that trump is "unfit for any office" and that he "poses a grave threat."  She goes on to say, "Donald Trump would be the greatest threat to American democracy if reelected president."  She described her Republican colleagues as, "defending the indefensible."  she proclaimed, "There will come a day when Donald Trump is gone, but your dishonor will remain."  Condemning her former colleagues and party leaders as “enablers and collaborators,” who after the 2020 election were “willing to violate their oath to the Constitution out of political expediency and loyalty to Donald Trump.” Finally, Chaney exclaimed, "Everyone has been warned."

 

David, Jolly, a former Republican Congressman, offered this perspective: "There are, in today's Republican party, spineless politicians who are rotten to the core. They are without virtue, without any level of human integrity, devoid of self-respect or self reflection.  They are with courage and without the moral compass to recognize there own malevolence."

Paul Ryan describes Trump as a "populist authoritarian narcissist." Adam Kinzinger describes Trump as "pure evil."  And he says the Republican party is on a "slide to authoritarianism."  General John Kelly, Trump's former Chief of staff said, "Trump is the most flawed person I know. The depths of his dishonesty are astounding." Other Republicans who once worked for Trump have also offered their insights:

 

 

"What Nixon did was just an ordinary crime.  What Trump has done is quite arguably the worst crime against the United States a president could commit."

-J. Michael Luttig, Former US Federal Judge

 

Americans need to wake up top the reality of our current situation. Trump does does have the best interests of our country in mind. He is only concerned with himself. We need to look past party affiliation and ideological bias and look rationally at the actions and rhetoric of Donald Trump. Moreover, we need to gather our senses and cease being gullible. We need to quit being swayed by the charismatic verbiage of a liar whose intentions are self-serving, nefarious, ulterior, self-serving, and destructive.

 

Geoff Duncan, Former Lt. Gov of Georgia (Republican), testified against Trump in the election tampering case. He issued this dire warning:  "If we, as Republicans, don't use this moment of insanity as a pivot point for the party, then shame on us. This is an opportunity for Republicans to come out and boldly state that not only is Donald Trump wrong, not only has he lied to us, but it's time for him to get out of the race. It's not good for the party, but more importantly it's not good for this country. Quite honestly, if Trump is the Republican presidential nominee, it would be the biggest mistake our party has ever made.  If Trump is elected, it would be a disaster for this country and the world for somebody this small-minded to have that much control. It is time to clear the air and get the facts on the table. Republicans need to stop believing Donald Trump and his long list of lies."

Retired US Navy Admiral William McRaven was direct in his assessment of Trump: "Through his actions, Trump has embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage, and, worst of all, divided us as a nation."  General Colin Powell says that "Trump is a national disgrace."

 

Entertainer and former politician Arnold Schwarzenegger made this poignant statement: "For the first time since I became a US citizen in 1983, I will not vote for the republican candidate for president.  But, as proud as I am to label myself a republican, there is one label that I hold above all else... American.  So I want to take a moment today to remind my fellow republicans that it is not only acceptable to choose your country over your party... It is your duty!"

 

Trump continues to deliver his message in an uncivil, mean-spirited, and bombastic manner.  His speeches are replete with lies, exaggerations, embellishments, and hyperbole.  His rhetoric is littered with name-calling, profanity, bigotry, misogyny, xenophobia, violence, and hatred.

 

The Washington Post reported that, "Trump’s false or misleading claims total 30,573 over 4 years."  Analysts suggest that, on average, Trump "made almost 21 untrue statements a day while in office."

"I'll admit that Joe Biden is old.  But, Donald Trump is deranged.  He is cruel, dishonest, and malignantly narcissistic. He is disloyal to his country.  He is cultish, ignorant, authoritarian,  and corrupt.  he is lawless.  I'll take Biden's old age over Trump's evil in a heartbeat."

-Joe Walsh, Former GOP Congressman

 

Add to his brutish style and authoritarian ambitions, the observed actions of this candidate who has demonstrated enormous incompetence, abuse of power, and obstruction of justice. Trump has sided with white supremacists, religious extremists, and bigots of every ilk.  His dishonesty is profound. He continues to spread disinformation and lies.  He has insulted military veterans, maligned respected governmental servants, lied about his opponents, and attacked innocent people who disagreed with him. He is an indicted criminal who has racked up 91 felony counts for sexual misconduct, fraud, obstruction, and election interference.  And he incited a violent insurrection on the US Capitol.

 

This situation is of serious political concern.  Unless Americans realize the enormity of the problem and fully understand the dire consequences of a Trump presidency, our nation is in trouble.  If Trump is elected, there is no doubt he will target the civil rights of women, minorities, immigrants, and the LGBTQ community.  He will trample personal liberties, trash human rights, and discard the US Constitution.

 

Like dictators who have gone before him, Trump is a threat to democracy, a catalyst for fascism, and a clear and present danger. He is a traitor to his country. Throughout history, it would seem, people did not take the various Hitlers and Mussolinis seriously until it was too late.

Joe Biden's Comments About trump

 

"We know who Trump is. The question is who are we?"
-President Joe Biden

 

Here are some select quotes from President Joe Biden in a speech he delivered on the third anniversary of the January 6 insurrection...

 

"Donald Trump's campaign is about him. Not America, not you. Donald Trump's campaign is obsessed with the past. Not the future. He's willing to sacrifice our democracy to put himself in power."

"Trump is running as the denier-in-chief, the election denier-in-chief. Once again, he's saying he won't honor the results of the election if he loses... He still doesn't understand the basic truth and that is you can't love your country only when you win."

"For the first time in our history, insurrectionists had come to stop the peaceful transfer of power in America ... smashing windows, shattering doors, attacking the police. Outside, gallows were erected as the MAGA crowd chanted 'Hang Mike Pence.' Inside, they hunted for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi." "Over 140 police officers injured. Jill and I attended the funerals of police officers who died as a result of the events that day. Because of Donald Trump's lies. They died because these lies brought a mob to Washington."

"Trump's mob wasn't a peaceful protest, it was a violent assault. They were insurrectionists, not patriots... I'll say what Donald Trump won't. Physical violence is never, ever acceptable in the United States political system... It has no place in a democracy, none. You can't be pro-insurrectionist and pro-American."

"What's Trump done? Instead of calling them criminals, he's called these insurrectionists patriots ... and he promised to pardon them if he returned to office. Trump said that there was a lot of love on January 6. The rest of the nation, including law enforcement, saw a lot of hate and violence."

"He tried to rewrite the facts of January 6. Trump is trying to steal history the same way he tried to steal the election."

Donald Trump: Uniquely Reprehensible

 

Trump has succeeded in many dubious, nefarious, and infamous ways


There has never been a more profoundly dishonest, more willfully ignorant, more irretrievably corrupt, more seriously flawed president than Donald Trump.  There never was a bigger narcissist; a more incessant misogynist, bigot, and racist; a more childish, immature, and irresponsible government official than Trump.  He has distinguished himself in a variety of ways, none of them honorable.

 

He is the First President...

 

--in 28 years not to serve a second term

--in 45 years not to release his tax information

--in 89 years to lose the presidency, the House of Rep, and the Senate in one term

--in 129 years to lose the popular vote twice

--in 152 years to boycott his successor's inauguration

--ever to be impeached twice

--ever to be elected with the help of a foreign power

--ever to refuse to concede defeat

--ever to not ensure a peaceful transfer of power

--ever to incite a domestic terrorist attack

--ever to have 26 sexual assault allegations

--ever to be indicted on 91 felony counts

Trump's Broken Promises...

 

--Promised to build a wall. He only did 458 miles out of 2,000. Most of it was repairing or replacement, not new.
--He promised to make Mexico pay. They didn't.
--He promised to cut the deficit. He added $8 trillion to it.
--He promised to unveil a new health care plan. It didn't exist.
--He promised a middle-class tax cut. He cut taxes for the rich. The middle class is paying for it.
--He said he wouldn't play golf as President. He made 250 visits (way more than Obama) to his own golf clubs. It cost taxpayers $136 million.
--He said he'd increase economic growth by 4%. He didn't. President Biden did.
--He promised an infrastructure plan. He had none. President Biden signed a massive one.
--He promised to hire "the best people." He fired 3/4 of them, and then said they were the worst ever.
--He promised to bring down the price of prescription drugs. He didn't. President Biden did.
--He promised a Hillary lock up. It didn't happen.
--Promised we'd win the trade war with China. We didn't. It cost about a quarter million jobs and hurt Americans, not help them.
--He promised his corporate tax cuts would help and benefit workers and corporations would use that money to invest in American workers. They didn't, they used that money to buy back stocks.
--He promised to bring back and revive the coal industry. Never happened. More coal jobs lost during his presidency.
--He promised to drain the swamp. He didn't. He WAS the swamp.
