I was with Grayson last week. He had his fire truck on the floor and announced that he was going to cover it with his blanket and turn it into a monster. This he did seconds later, expressing great fear at what the shrouded fire truck had become.
As I watch him, I was struck with the similarity of his behavior to that of the president. As if imagining made it so, he had changed his own reality and wants all of us to go along with it.
After all the baiting to use “radical Muslim extremists,’ Theresa May has called them what they are = Muslim Perverts. Why has it taken so long?
Several Senators on the Intelligence Committee seem to be going beyond the usual bed-wetters status and are rising to the occasion as adults. For once, it is country over party.
Unfortunately, too many of them continue to ask questions involving whether the person providing testimony “believes” something to be true, or “feels” something is the case. One cannot be held accountable for either belief or feelings. No perjury could occur. And there is little information gathering that results from such a question. You may learn from how one perceives, how it “seems” to him/her, but there is little fact gathering or evidence that results.
Let’s see if the Senate panel members can rise above a Journalism 101 level of asking questions.
There are only a few data points so far, but there is an indication that something is rotten and needs investigation and verification.
If there is nothing, the involved parties, actors, could simply come out and declare as such. However, if there is something criminal, it will come out eventually and at great cost in time and patience on the part of everyone.
Speak up or be gone.
When a person is so obviously dependent upon praise and being regaled, the Saudi’s set the westerner up for a big rug purchase in the Middle Eastern market. Just as a sexual predator sets up a child for future sexual abuse by stages, this was the first stage in setting up the “needy child” in DJT to let down his guard and become dependent on some future gain for the Saudis.
Like a milkshake churning through a two year old straight into his diaper, DJT exercises no greater control with Israeli intelligence on Syria. He leaked it to the Russian Ambassador. So, at least he knows who leaked it.
Now the Israeli Ambassador quickly comes to Trump’s defense, not letting him twist in the wind, thereby bailing him out of his latest mischief, and leaving him indebted to the loyal ambassador.
Roy Cohn operated on loyalty, a major value in his relationships.Trump asked for loyalty from Comey, and did not get it. But the Mosad set up Donald, and he is now owned by them
DJT acknowledged today that he misses his old life, as he overturned yet another campaign promise. He’s more like a carnival ride than a flip-flopper, going loop de loops linguistically every day. So, be careful what you campaign for Donald. A lot of people took you seriously. Their bad!
As DJT continues to reneg on much of what he promised on the campaign trail, he seems overtaken by the fuzziness of “whatever,” a term that dissembles and alots no seriousness to what he has said. This self-dismissive behavior may lead to his being ignored completely, for people will tire of the headlines that promote much followed by actions that do little.
With DJT trapped in his own limited personna, incapable of a large range of human response; his daughter represents those aspects absent in her father.
DJT’s response [one of the first human responses] to the Syrian gassing victimes, was a close as he has gotten to breaking out of his branded personna. Straying any farther away may be a rarity. The scowl, the measured reaction, the narrowed eyes are all part of the “never let them see you sweat” personna he learned from Roy Cohn. Time will tell whether it can serve him well. I think not. Meanwhile, Ivanka will do her best to show how he might be within the family enclave, from the private glimpses she has been privvy to. She is there to provide hearsay evidence of his humanness, and we are supposed to believe from her what is not offered to us directly from DJT.
The latest item sought by terrorists to make a “dirty” bomb is americium-241 found in the smoke alarm in your home. Terrorists planned to explode a dirty bomb, a van filled with smoke alarms in a well-populated area. We are exposed to these detectors every day. Virtually every American home has a smoke alarm that contains a packet of this radioactive material. Check your detector for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission label inside .How bullet proof is that packet of americium-241? [See:http://www.epa.gov/radiation/radionuclides/americium.htm#contact]
How did americium-241 make it’s way into every home America? What due diligence preceded approval? Ralph Nader tried to alert consumers to the dangers of americium-241 in the early 1980’s, pre-terrorism. He was ignored. What other high risk items are lobbyists currently shepherding through Capitol Hill today? Already in place?
To assure the safety of your home and community:
1.) Assess what is already in place.
Homeland Security should make Geiger counters available
for monitoring our homes, offices, and property.
2.) Promote a recall and controlled disposal of current
smoke detectors containing americium-241.
Start with your congressman.
