Cyberspace is atwitter – literally – with news of Mr. Trump’s call for renewed stockpiling of nuclear weapons.
DON’T FALL FOR THE SLIGHT OF HAND!
We’ve been down this road before. How often, in the face of scandal, has this TV star and drama queen shifted our attention to something outrageous, to get us all shouting, “That’s outrageous,” while we loose focus on the real issue?
He knows media, he knows propaganda, he knows misdirection. He’s a very good stage magician and master of what is false
What matters is the Russian hacking, and what knowledge Mr. Trump and his cronies may have had of this. He never let go of Hillary’s emails. We must not let go of demanding disclosure of CIA information, and a bipartisan investigation to get to the truth.
A renewed arms race would demand congressional budget approval, something not likely to be forthcoming when generals and every representative and senator involved in military planning understands that American 21st century warfare is likely to center on cyber attacks and countering lone wolf terrorists.
Mr. Trump is like a drug dealer, tweeting our daily adrenaline fix. Enough! It’s time to let go of the drama and keep focus as the miasma clears and we see what he’d rather we didn’t.
Note: I won’t use pictures in posts on this man, nor say the name of the office he won, an office that bears an honor of which Mr. Trump is not worthy.
