Donald Trump and the Fatal Year of 2018

I was doing some research for a year-end post, when I came across this cartoon, and I almost fell out of my chair laughing.

To think that so many people ran or stumbled desperately towards 2017 thinking that they might find refuge there. Or sanity.

And how did that work out?

Yup, badly. Or should that be sadly?

The beast, the pervert, the maniac, turned out to be even worse than anyone could ever have imagined.

Once he groped young women, now he's groping the American Constitution. 

And we can only hope that he doesn't listen to all the voices in his head screaming at him to become an American Fuhrer.

So he can lead us into a catastrophic world war. Or many wars. Heil Drumph !!!

Even as he torches the planet, and tweets out crazy  stuff like this:

Or talks like this in an interview with what he calls the "failed" New York Times.

There is tremendous collusion with the Russians and with the Democratic Party. Including all of the stuff with the — and then whatever happened to the Pakistani guy, that had the two, you know, whatever happened to this Pakistani guy who worked with the D.N.C.? 

Whatever happened to them? With the two servers that they broke up into a million pieces? Whatever happened to him? That was a big story. Now all of sudden [inaudible]. So I know The New York Times is going to — because those are real stories. Whatever happened to the Hillary Clinton deleted 33,000 emails after she got [inaudible] — which you guys wrote, but then you dropped — was that you?.

Which sounds like all of the voices in his head are screaming at the same time... 

And ends like this:

Another reason that I’m going to win another four years is because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes. Without me, The New York Times will indeed be not the failing New York Times, but the failed New York Times. 

So they basically have to let me win. And eventually, probably six months before the election, they’ll be loving me because they’re saying, “Please, please, don’t lose Donald Trump.” O.K. 

Which quite frankly makes me wonder whether Trump is reverting back to his childhood...

Or going senile.

And whether like so many Americans, I should be investing in a nuclear radiation shelter. 

President Donald Trump’s escalating nuclear war tensions with North Korea have created a boom market for radiation fallout shelters, The Boston Globe reports Tuesday.

“If you see the flash of light and you see the mushroom cloud, the good news is you’re not dead, and you probably have 10 to 15 minutes to get somewhere,” noted Jeff Schlegelmilch, the deputy director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness at Columbia University.

Because as we all know Trump likes war.

A lot...

But in all this darkness there is some very good news. The Resistance is not only still standing, it has been galvanized. 

Democrats have triumphed all over the country, as Trump’s approval rating keeps sinking. The progressive Working Families Party endorsed 1,036 candidates in 2017; almost two-thirds of them won. Due in large part to grass-roots organizing, Democrats won a landslide in Virginia and took Jeff Sessions’s old Senate seat in Alabama.

Trump's depraved behaviour may have pleased his bestial supporters, but it's also motivated his progressive enemies to an extent never seen before, and will almost certainly lead to the beast's downfall. 

While Trump has given his followers the liberal tears they crave, that victory contains the seeds of its own reversal. Trump has done more to spur progressive political organizing than Bernie Sanders, George Soros and Saul Alinsky combined. The president once warned that if he fell, he’d take the entire Republican Party down with him. Thanks to the Resistance, he might still have the chance.

It won't be easy, Trump and his deplorables will do anything to try to cling to power. But Robert Mueller is closing in on the Trump mob.

The Resistance has never looked stronger and more beautiful...

The year 2018 will be a year to organize, and mobilize, and take Congress back in the midterm elections.

And just as we drove out the Harper mob, I haven't the slightest doubt that the decent people of America will eventually drive the Trump mafia out of the White House.

Make 2018 the Trumpy traitor's fatal year.

Begin the mighty campaign to take their whole country back.

And end this fascist nightmare...

And of course Iwe should be doing whatever humble thing we can to help our good neighbours.

Down with Trump.

Long live The Great American Resistance !!!

This comment was deleted because it was crudely Nazi. If you have comments like that please deposit them in the flaming rear orifice of Ezra Levant. Thank you.

Hi Simon, it seems like the deplorables are rather active at this time of year. Is it because while we're celebrating the holidays with loved ones they, with their consummate hatred of everything, have come full circle and now have no one who loves them?
I was always a firm believer in that you get what you give and it is most deserving in their cases.

In my opinion the wave of hate we are experiencing may have been magnified by Trump and his smelly deplorables, but it was Stephen Harper's politics of division that sowed the seeds of what we are experiencing now. He was always pitting one group of Canadians against the other, and created the conditions for the rise of bigots like Ezra Levant. If Justin Trudeau hadn't smashed the Con regime we would be living in a truly backward place.

Anon 4:00, Trump and Harper certainly are kindred spirits.

Tonight (Dec. 29) on MSNBC:

A rebroadcast of the special report on the 35-page Trump–Russia dossier compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.


Donald Trump–Russia dossier–Russia_dossier

Read the Trump–Russia dossier:

A Second Look at the Steele Dossier

[Editor’s Note: In this special Just Security article, highly respected former member of the CIA’s Senior Intelligence Service, John Sipher examines the Steele dossier using methods that an intelligence officer would to try to validate such information. Sipher concludes that the dossier’s information on campaign collusion is generally credible when measured against standard Russian intelligence practices, events subsequent to Steele’s reporting, and information that has become available in the nine months since Steele’s final report. The dossier, in Sipher’s view, is not without fault, including factual inaccuracies. Those errors, however, do not detract from an overarching framework that has proven to be ever more reliable as new revelations about potential Trump campaign collusion with the Kremlin and its affiliates has come to light in the nine months since Steele submitted his final report.]

Any news reports that are critical of Trump in any way he immediately calls "fake news".

That tactic is right out of the Hitler playbook:

Has no one tweeted back that Alaska is having "an insanely warm December"?

Hi's like the movie The Birds, the Con crows are flying in from everywhere. It must be the cold weather or some phase of the moon. In addition to the two above comments I have had to delete eight others. As I've said before, after about twelve years of blogging I think I've seen everything, but still those morons surprise me. I don't want to be cruel, but I have to admit that pressing the delete button and metaphorically wiping out a Con can be quite satisfying... 😎

Hi anon 4:00 PM....I agree with you, Harper's foul regime scarred this country more than most people imagine. He not only fanned the flames of hate, he made it harder to go after the hate mongers. And as you say he helped normalize scummy bigots like Ezra Levant, and thank goodness for the decency of Justin Trudeau...

Simon said...

Hi David...I believe it was the original Mrs Trump who told us that Drumph used to sleep with a copy of Hitler's speeches on his bedside table. That should have been a warning, but like so many others it didn't register, and now we may have a wannabe Fuhrer with the power to end life on earth. Those who don't learn from the past etc etc....

Hi anon.... When the final history of the Trump regime is written, his attempt to sabotage the fight against climate change will probably be seen as his worst crime against humanity. Unless of course he fries us all by starting a nuclear war. Trump is a very dangerous man, and the fact he was given the power to destroy us could turn out to be the greatest act of human folly in the history of the world...
