Last week the saber-rattling between North Korea and the United States continued to escalate. While North Korea has continually promised to reduce Washington DC to a heap of ashes, previous US Administrations have been unable to deter their announced goal. Now comes the Trump Administration, which is not only sending missile defense systems to South Korea but also various military shows of force to the area.
Late last week, because of the rising tensions, Trump invited all 100 US Senators to a briefing about the situation.
If North Korea is able to deliver a nuclear warhead aboard its faulty missiles, the obvious first target would be South Korea, the second would be Japan, the third would be Hawaii and the fourth might well be the West Coast of the United States. It is interesting to note that the first US targets would be the most liberal of our states. From Hawaii to the entire Western Seaboard, liberals who push the PC Culture might be the first to perish. Likewise, if a true Axis of Evil exists between North Korea and Iran, the Iranian missiles would first target the liberal enclaves on the East Coast, primarily New York and others.
At the present time, Trump’s pledge to “drain the swamp” in Washington calls to mind the old adage, “When you’re up to your rear in alligators, it is hard to remember that your primary mission was to drain the swamp.” Of course, in Trump’s case the alligators have a prominent D carved on their backside.
So far, the Democrats in both houses have roundly resisted most of Trump’s proposed legislation. Conversely, Trump has been extremely active in abolishing the many onerous legislations enacted by Obama through Executive Orders.
Speaking of Obama, the most riveting news revealed last week was that he (Obama) was to receive a $400,000 speaking fee from Wall Street. This immediately brought a 2009 TV Clip to the airways which showed Obama stating, “I was not elected to take care of a bunch of fat cats on Wall Street.” This, in spite of the fact that his first Presidential Campaign had received more donations from Wall Streeters than any previous Presidential Campaign of either Party. During his eight years in office, the Prevaricating President deluded the populace continuously with a flow of misstatements, chief among them being the famous Lie of the Year, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan.”
In other news from Washington, the Democrats are pushing for a new investigation into former NSA Director Flynn’s ties to Russian and Turkish payments, which they deem illegal. Chief among the critics is Congressman Cummings, who is most famous for once declaring that Hillary Clinton was the greatest Secretary of State of all time. It is the same Cummings who protected IRS Agent Lois Lerner when she invoked the Fifth Amendment rather than implicate herself in her work to deny legal status to right-wing organizations.
