A “Welcome” that Changed America

July 20, 2018

Our earnest President has invited Russian autocrat, Vladimir Putin, to visit the Unites States and meet with the President in the White House.

In making that decision, President Trump has revealed the stupid aspect of the worldview of this otherwise astute politician.

Much like Enoch Powell in the United Kingdom in the late 1960s, Trump has appealed to the fears of Americans of European descent who fear that the ethnic identity of America is being changed by legal and illegal immigration.

President Trump appealed to traditional Democrats by calling for tariffs on foreign imports.

He further gained their support by promising not to reduce Entitlements that working-class Americans have been promised by FDR, LBJ and George W. Bush.

He has appealed to traditional Southerners by criticizing removal of Confederate memorials from public.

He enacted tax cuts that benefit large corporations.

And he has engaged in other populist and nationalist messaging including a consistent attack on American media, especially CNN and MSNBC.

In other words, Trump is, from the perspective of some conservatives, “half-right.”  The other half of President Donald Trump is not as acceptable. His womanizing reveals a self-indulgent male with predatory inclinations toward what for the President is the “weaker” sex.

The President values Nietzchean “strength” that too often values strongmen, autocrats, and in the case of North Korea and the People’s Republic of China, totalitarian Marxist-Leninists.

Due to the President’s dyslexia, he avoids reading documents and books and “learns” from cable news programming.

And, the President manages the U.S. government as if it were a small entrepreneurial enterprise.

In sum, President Trump is incompetent, and ignorant of basic law and how the formal administrative powers of the Chief Executive of a vast administrative “state” are exercised. This spells imminent disaster somewhere in the world, quite possibly triggered by assessment of the President’s weakness by Russia, North Korea, Iran or the People’s Republic of China.

Vladimir Putin will attempt to “play” President Trump in order to rebuild Russia by recovering Ukraine. North Korea will continue to develop its nuclear ballistic missile capabilities, and the People’s Republic of China will grow its military capabilities and pursue its goal of domination of Japan and South Korea. God only knows what the Mullahs in Iran will attempt, but, collectively, they confront the United States and Western Europe with formidable threats.

One solution is Impeachment and or resignation of the President of the United States. The former may be more likely, if Robert Mueller’s investigation leads to indictments of Donald Trump, Jr. and the President’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

Whatever happens, this we know. The invitation of Vladimir Putin to visit the President in the White House has changed the political calculus of American politics to the President’s disadvantage.
