Good Day World!
Without authorization from Congress, Trump suddenly ordered a deadly drone strike on the second most powerful man in Iran - Major General Qasem Soleimani.
Instead of following the lead of past presidents and informing the Gang of Eight (four Democrats and 4 Republicans) before authorizing military action that could lead to war, Trump, aka the Chosen One, chose to make the decision all by himself.
The lone decider is a pattern of governing Trump has been embracing more and more during his corrupt regime. He's turned all the heads of government into puppets dancing to his crazy whims and prejudices.
Why take such a provocative move now? Killing a top Iranian military leader visiting Iraq was a calculated move by Trump. The only person he told about his plan was his asshole buddy, Lindsey-the-hypocrite Graham, while they were golfing at his resort a couple of days ago.
That meeting stinks of a wag-the-dog moment. With the impending impeachment trial in the Senate coming up soon, Trump did what he does best - divert attention to something else.
**Pompous Mike Pompeo and Trump declared the reason for the sudden strike was because of an imminent threat;
**The reason for the strike was to stop an ongoing threat, according to Mitch McConnell;
**The drone strike was a deterrent according to the Pentagon;
The story keeps changing. Take your pick.
This post is not about defending that ruthless murderer Soleimani. Lives will be saved with him gone. What needs to be examined is why now? Let's be real. Soleimani has been a threat to Americans in the region for at least three decades.
It's no coincidence that in the last two weeks more revelations about Trump's Ukraine cover up have become public with additional damaging information on Trump.
It was time to change the narrative.
By now, everyone in America knows Trump will stop at nothing to stay president, and get re-elected. If that means starting a war, he's fully capable of it.
The scary thing is if Senate Republicans acquit Trump he's going to become even more unhinged than he currently is... at the sake of our country's best interests.
The nation's fate rests with true patriots recognizing the truth and convicting Trump for Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress in the Senate trial.
The senators have all sworn to protect our republic from day one. This is their chance. Trump has to be stopped as soon as possible.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
