A Matter Of Honor

A Matter Of Honor

One of the more interesting results of the Covington Catholic boys incident in Washington DC a few weeks ago is a new emboldening of the Trump supporters who like to advertise their allegiance to him by wearing the MAGA hat. We see articles, on NT and elsewhere where the writer exclaims his or her pride in emulating Donald Trump. 

I have only one question - what on earth is wrong with those people?

If there is one thing that is 100% a certainty concerning this Trump era, it is that it is not going to end well.  That is because history is the judge of it, and the history of Trump's path through American politics will be seen as a disaster of heretofore unknown proportions. 

Why anyone thought that electing a reality tv game show host with profound psychological malfunctions and blatant character defects to the presidency of the United States was a good idea is something that will be ridiculed and disparaged for decades, if not centuries, to come. 

There are certain aspects of Donald Trump that are a given. He lies to the American people on a daily basis, often distorting reality by the hour. Sometimes he will lie about something that the whole world can see on video. Trump has shown over and over that he is an ignoramus , making many factual mistakes , misidentifying people, misidentifying countries, misstating US policy, making ridiculously incorrect comments about US history, etc.  Trump is so often wrong about the facts connected to any days news stories one has to wonder whether or not he misstates facts on purpose, perhaps to confuse everyone under the impression that if everyone is confused it will benefit him somehow. From the perspective history will take, Trump will simply be seen as a very ignorant man whose narcissism butted heads with his ignorance. 

Trump is a known fraud and crook. There are no doubt many examples of this but two will suffice as proof. He defrauded the customers of Trump University through blatantly false advertising and he and his parents cheated the US government out of millions of dollars of taxes as wealth was passed from his parents to Donald Trump over the course of a number of years. Trump paid very little tax on 400 million dollars of income. According to a massive New York Times investigation last year, this was very illegal. 

Trump has totally failed to unite the American people, and has not even tried. He holds "rallies" where the main purpose is to attack all of Trump's "enemies". He also belittles his political opposition on a daily basis, often calling juvenile names using childish insults. 

There is a large group of psychiatrists that have concluded that Trump is not psychologically fit to be president of the United States. Let that sink in for a minute. 

Rather than prolong a recitation of the mountain of actions, words, traits and behavior by Donald Trump that should , on a daily basis, disqualify this man from holding any office, let alone the presidency, I will get to my main point. 

Those who support Trump have forfeited their honor. It is not possible to honestly believe that Trump is qualified to be president of the United States, or fit to hold our highest office. It simply is not possible. All support of Trump is based on unconscious , or willful , acceptance of a man who merits, by his own character, words and actions, no support. This is an incontrovertible truth. 

One day soon this psychic bill will come due. 

As I am writing this I have a news program on in the background. One news item just passing through -  Donald Trump's pastor says he has never seen Donald Trump in the church.  This is a man who many of his followers believe has been anointed by God. Delusions are ubiquitous when it comes to Trump.

Well maybe they do, but "my side" is not supporting a profoundly ignorant and dysfunctional individual. Is Trump completely stupid or mentally unbalanced? or both?  His entire presidency has played out like a black comedy or dark satire. But, so to speak, it is real. 

This level of disgrace will last a long long long time.

I disagree.  These are not sweeping generalizations but personal opinions.  This site does not allow for people to express their personal opinions and that imo is a form of censorship.   I am not offended by Wally's response to me and many times we agree to disagree with a smiley face or a laugh.  What is wrong with allowing members to find their own way to communicate with each other.

I simply do not understand what the purpose of this site is if members are not permitted to have different opinions and point of views unless we are whispering so as not to upset anyone.

This "sweeping generalizations" business here needs to come to an end.

There is scarcely a seed on this site that does not contain numerous sweeping generalizations. It is the way people talk when they are referring to broad topics.

Trump voters have got this country into the giant mess we are in. It is not possible to leave them out of a conversation about the Trump presidency.

What is the general response of "conservatives" on this site? To say "Obama" or "Clinton" were the same. One time Obama said there are 57 states. Trump makes mistakes like that multiple times every day.

NM, Donald Trump completely disgraced himself by conducting a fraudulent "investigation" into the birth certificate of the then sitting president Barack Obama. When Trump began his racist inquiries into Obama's birth and background Obama had already been the sitting president for two years.

How did someone who was proved , at that point, to have no integrity, decency or honor garner votes to be president of the United States?

TWICE, prior to Trump launching his birther smear in 2011, the state of Hawaii had OFFICIALLY announced that Obama's birth certificate had been inspected by state officials and was in it's proper place in state archives.

Was Trump a low down liar when he ignored that information, or was he just a profoundly stupid man?  Either case disqualifies him as presidential material.

Evangelicals see Trump as a remote control to get their way, because they are a rigid voting block and he has no ethical threshold when it comes to gaining their support.  Does it matter to them that he is a vile human being?  No.  They would have some serious explaining to do on judgement day if God were real.

I believe they see Trump as similar to one of the Old Testament figures who is flawed personally and behaviorally , but is being used by God as a vessel to enact God's will. Other than as a Bible story, the theory makes little sense. 

Add Evangelicals to the list of people who will have to reckon with profound embarrassment when this Trump era unravels.

No, nobody believes that Trump has been anointed by God! The Evangelicals and other religious organizations who voted for Trump would have voted for Rubio or Cruz or whoever else the GOP nominated. This large part of the American electorate was driven to the Republican Party long ago by progressives.

Thank you, so much

Ah, but you forget, trump announced that Jerusalem belonged to and was the capital of Israel, doesn't he at least get a holy pat on the head or some kind of blessing from somebody?

No, no other President has ever made such an announcement because it would increase tension in the Middle East a lot and the only one it pleases is Israel. That's nice, but was it a good idea? You may have noticed a increase in hostilities, just what the Middle East always needs.

Should we act out of hate for the Palestinians? Is this going to make relations with the Palestinians any easier?

 Or we should go ahead and get this war thing started and settle this Religious stuff literally once and for all?

That's what we were put here for, wasn't it?

Relations will not be easy until the Palestinians recognize Israel's right to exist.

Or we should go ahead and get this war thing started and settle this Religious stuff literally once and for all?

We? Nobody has done more for peace in that hate-filled region.

Many people can separate the Trump presidency from the 2016 election. You seem to be completely unable to.

Every word of what I said in the article is true.

We have a president that is a pathological liar.

We have a president that has cheated the US government out of tens of millions of dollars in taxes.

We have a president that paid a 25 million dollar settlement to hundreds of people his personal business defrauded.

We have a president who makes significant mistakes of fact every single day.

We have a president who behaves like a buffoon.

And all you can do is talk about the election 2 1/2 years ago.

One almost has to ask why you are so averse to criticizing Trump.  What are your motivations to pretend this travesty is nothing?

I often wonder if you can go two minutes without groveling over the Trump.

BF, we have the worst president in the history of this country. He is provably a serial liar, crook, fraud, cheat, ignoramus , and buffoon. And yet you have never criticized him. You attack those who criticize Trump, not Trump.

Objectively, you have a lot of explaining to do.

BF, Freudian slip?

I mean, if you were responding to one of John's clear observations about Trump it would have had to read something like;

I often wonder if you can go two minutes without trying to  educate America about Trump.

Though there are several posters on this site that do "GROVEL" for Trump constantly, ( 51EJb%2B2bNPL._SY679_.jpg), John can in no way be considered part of that ever shrinking segment of America.

Comes from being faced with the truth they cannot admit or accept. It is always so much better to blame others and tell them how wrong they are...

No, it is obvious common sense. Do you even pay attention to what Trump says every day. He is dumb as a fucking rock.  Whod of thunk it?

Just think how dumb and incompetent his opponent was since he so handily defeated her. Is she even able to breath for herself? We sure got lucky that day..

As long as people are allowed to say idiotic things like that on NT, and people who understand the truth are not allowed to respond appropriately, this site will never reach it's potential.

We have right wingers on this site who spend all their time doing the sort of gaslighting bamboozling and nonsense making as is seen in the above.

Trump is a fraud, a con man, a perpetual liar, a crook, an ignoramus, and a buffoon. Those are not guesses. Those are the reality of the situation. 

They try and defend Trump by either attacking me or making preposterous comparisons between Trump and Obama or Clinton. It is nothing but gaslighting and bamboozling.

Let's see, Obama:

Graduated Columbia University with a degree in Political Science, 1983.

Entered Harvard law school 1988, met Constitution law Professor Laurence Tribe who added Obama as his research assistant in 1989.

In 1990, Obama was elected editor of the Harvard Law Review.

Graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard Law School 1991.

After law school he went to Chicago and was a civil rights lawyer for the firm Miner, Barnhill and Gayland law firm. (Strike one from the conservative parade, "civil rights.") Boooo! Hssss!

He also lectured at The University of Chicago first as a lecturer and later as a Professor, 1992-2004.

Married Michelle in 1992.

Here's another baaddd one (strike two from the conservatives) in 1985 worked as a community organizer for low income resident communities on Chicago's south side. (the words "organizer combined with "low income" drives conservatives crazy.)

Yep, that's one dumb rock, alright. You can tell, he's only been married once, and is still married to (can you imagine?) his first wife.

Let's peek at your He-row, the one with a GOOD brain, even if he has to say so himself, and he DOES have to say so himself because nobody else will.

New York Military Academy at 13, star athlete and student leader (daddy was rich, right? of course, that wasn't a factor) grad 1964.

Fordham University for 2 years, then transferred to Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania grad 1968, degree in economics. 

That's it, if you don't count scripted reality game show host.

But he is on his third wife, good boy, it only makes the evangelists love him more.

a new emboldening of the Trump supporters who like to advertise their allegiance to him by wearing the MAGA hat. 

Their boldness never waned. 

If there is one thing that is 100% a certainty concerning this Trump era, it is that it is not going to end well.

Let's face it.  No matter how it ends you will declare it a catastrophe.  If every American is a millionaire and cancer is cured by the time he leaves office, you'll find something to whine about.

"emboldening of the Trump supporters who like to advertise their allegiance to him by wearing the MAGA hat. "

"Make America GREAT Again" is much better than wearing hats and shirts "advertising for Pepsi" or claiming "I'm with Stupid" !
