Tuesday. A perfect day. I awakened, had a modest breakfast, then read the online news.
The polls about Trump/Biden are terrifying. The exact same thing is happening that happened in 1973-74 to Richard Nixon. The media powers that had a deep psychological hatred of Nixon finally made it pay off over a trivial incident that — to this day — no one can explain as a major reason for kicking out a great President.
Now, the media powers that be are making their deep loathing of Trump pay off in a huge way by staging a media coup d'état over exactly nothing. The media powers that be have been attacking him, sliming him, smearing him since he won the 2016 election.
He was accused of being a Russian agent.
Accused of taking bribes. Accused of treason.
Nothing ever panned out as a real cause of action.
But the haters had to keep hating.
It's what made their lives meaningful.
So, they accused him now of somehow being responsible for a worldwide virus pandemic. Clearly, he didn't cause it. It would have been micro-biologically impossible for him to have caused it. He responded to it right away on the basis of the best advice he could get.
The virus turned out to be a lot worse than almost anyone had foreseen. How could that possibly be Trump's fault? Yes, if his foresight had been perfect, he would have imposed much stricter controls on movements and contacts than he did. But health issues in this country are handled in almost all cases state-by-state and not by the federal government.
For President Trump to have foreseen the unforeseeable and then to have acted against the Constitution would have been expecting a lot. And do we want to overthrow the Constitution even over a super severe health crisis? The Constitution is sacred. It is the finest governing document of any country all over the world.
Do we want to jettison it for any reason at all?
Apparently, Trump is not being blamed for rioting and looting in the cities of America. But how on earth is it his fault if a bunch of violent gangsters use the flimsiest of fake political issues to loot Burberry and Hermes and other super high end clothing and jewelry stores?
How did Trump cause that?
The Democrats are the ones who refuse to get tough on crime — not Trump and the GOP.
