The most singular thing about Donald Trump’s wiretap accusation against Barack Obama is how he’s refusing to play the game of extremities –losing a Flynn here and getting a Sessions paralyzed there — and getting right into lethal range. Trump’s gone right past Schumer, ignored the surrogates and gone straight for the former president himself.The concept of the complete retirement of presidents is based on presidents who had principles which include the laws and welfare of the AMERICAN NATION. Obama believes in the welfare of the Leftist autocracy and the uber-rich globalists. He also believes that he has an army in the BLM and antifas, supported by the media and the deep state.
The Sunday Guardian writes some believe Trump’s key mistake was believing “in mid-November … that it would be a statesmanlike gesture to (in effect) pardon Hillary Clinton”. He must have expected a reciprocal courtesy. The next thing he felt were his digits being sheared away.
“Acting through their contacts in the incoming administration, the Clinton machine … ‘dismissed National Security Advisor Michael Flynn … [and] ensured that the green light got flashed to launch an attack on another known foe of Hillary Clinton’, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whose sought after resignation would energize the Clinton machine to move on to their next targets, Counsellors Kellyanne Conway and Stephen Bannon.”
Trump’s response to the finger-lopping campaign was not to respond proportionately but to attack Obama himself. . . .
This escalation represents a real threat to Obama. Suddenly everything is out of control. Nobody would have minded much if Trump had gone after one of Obama’s henchmen — which is probably what was expected — but none can foresee how an exchange of blades between principals will end. It is safe to say however that unless the combatants disengage someone will get hurt. It will be a terrible moment for American political civility when a king lies on the political floor. The whole point of a peaceful transition of power is to prevent a clash between kings. Yet the very tragedy the electoral process is intended to prevent is happening before our eyes.
In such a fight anything can happen.
One of the ways American political culture prevents such a fight is to have only one king at a time. Former presidents are expected to retire and vanish. Obama, however, decided to stay in DC and try to destroy Trump’s presidency. That was a choice that showed little concern for America, but then, the lack of such concern has been a hallmark of Obama’s career.
And who was foolish enough to think that Trump would respond to attacks by playing small ball?
Trump is the Destructor who has proven himself in battle time and again when the Left declared him dead at every turn.
If Obama loses his status as king of the world's Leftist armies, it is possible that an unfocused war of civil destruction will break out as the ruffians go berserk.
THE most interesting times, EVAH.
