More and more, the discussion has turned to the stability of President Donald Trump.
The months of July and August have been horrendous so far for those supporting the Trump White House.. Top Trump staff such a Reince Priebus and now Steve Bannon have been canned. Sean Spicer was replaced by Mooch who certainly had no smooth sailing either. Then, the emotional controversies related to the KKK and the Nazis blew up in Trump's face, leaving observers wondering if there is any sanity remaining.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Barbarian, is back in the news. Following Steve Bannon’s walk out the White House front door a Breitbart News’ senior editor-at-large wrote that President Donald Trump risked becoming “Schwarzenegger 2.0.” It was meant to be an insult, but it shouldn’t be because “Schwarzenegger 1.0.” wasn’t such a bad thing, though it started out very oddly, indeed, as part of recall effort of Governor Gray Davis who just, months before, had won a 2nd term.
Saturday will be the day of protests from the left and the wet:
FLOOD CITY HALL
This Saturday August 19, 2017 at 11 AM, a rally will be held in Duncan Plaza to allow the citizens of New Orleans to “flood city hall” with their voices. Organized out of frustration for the lack of leadership coming from the Mayor’s Office regarding the flooding in New Orleans two weeks; participants will unify in their belief that Mayor Mitch Landrieu should resign effective January 1, 2018 after the fall elections are finalized.
Steve Bannon is over at the White House and the future promises to be bloody. According to Axios, it appears the decision was made earlier, Bannon was informed and the resignation would go into effect today.
The question now is, who will be doing the shooting, who will be the target and if President Trump will be in the crosshairs or, with his being forced out, if his presidency will be collateral damage.
A funny thing happened on the way to the Trump impeachment, the Russia story has vanished. Despite months of hyperventilating about the President being involved in nefarious “Russian collusion,” no evidence was actually produced. Despite a biased media, a biased special counsel and a legal team selected from the donor roll of the Democratic Party, Donald Trump is still President and still claiming that the whole campaign is a “witch hunt.”
Both President Donald Trump and New Orleans Mitch Landrieu lead their respective armies in the Battles of the Civil War monuments.
Every day Donald Trump is President of the United States, the Republican Party lives another lie. Ronald Reagan would never belong to the party of Trump. Neither would Eisenhower, nor any other Republican President from the greatest to the most mediocre. Trump’s brand of Republicanism isn’t just unprecedented; it’s aberrant and dangerous.
With the world focus upon confederate monuments after the violence in Charlottesville and the announcements from various cities related to their respective monuments, the organizations that spearheaded the removal of the New Orleans monuments are announcing a rally this weekend.
Focus is back on the Ku Klux Klan following the tragic violence in Charlottesville last week. The Southern Poverty Law Center released data alleging that the Klan is still active in Louisiana, particularly in the central and northwest part of the state.
In the aftermath of the April 19, 2015 death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland, then Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake gave a press briefing and admitted that she ordered police to give protesters space to “destroy.” Of course, the result of that reckless decision was that over 350 businesses were damaged, looted or burned and a riot flamed out of control for days.
I get it. I really do.
I understand how Donald Trump has become the symbol of hope to millions of good decent, hard working Americans, who love their children, who pay taxes, who revere God and who are tired with the way that the country has gone astray.
In a Facebook and Twitter Live interview yesterday, I asked conservative columnist Quin Hillyer about the complaint I am hearing and reading from mainly pro-Donald Trump supporters—that Trump’s critics and members of the mainstream media would never accept anything Trump said or has done and would criticize him no matter what.
