According to journalist Yanatab Zunger, Donald Trump currently appears to be targeting the CIA and its other Deep State cronies for extinction — while at the same time hiring his own security team to protect himself. Ah, if only President Kennedy had engineered this kind of power-grab/self-protection combination when he was first elected, he would still be alive today and we would live in a whole different (and far better) world. https://medium.com/@yonatanzunger/trial-balloon-for-a-coup-e024990891d5#.dg9vu3e70
Make no mistake, Trump is no friend of democracy like JFK obviously was, and I am totally appalled by many of Trump’s policies and buddies. With regard to Trump’s plans to cut MediCare, Social Security and various government food and housing programs, these cuts basically amount to the financial genocide of America’s elderly — the very same white male demographic that The Donald has sworn to protect. And the buddies he has chosen to guide him appear to be totally committed to ecological genocide of the entire human race as well.
However. Trump, like Kennedy before him, also seems to be calling out the Deep State’s right to rule America (and the world) with an iron hand. Good luck with that one, President Trump. Let’s just hope you don’t go the way of others who have also tried this in the past. Patrice Lumumba, Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy immediately come to mind. http://www.motherjones.com/media/2015/10/book-review-devils-chessboard-david-talbot
The so-called Deep State, AKA the military-industrial complex and/or Wall Street and War Street, is a political dinosaur whose time has come — and gone. These days, “People everywhere just want to be free,” to paraphrase an old-school New Jersey rock band. But this particular Deep State dinosaur seems at first glance to be the T-Rex of them all, impossible to defeat even though its extinction has already been written in the sand. http://time.com/4657648/charles-koch-donald-trump/
So who better to take out a mean dinosaur than another mean dinosaur? Enter the Trump political machine. Battle to the death here folks. But no matter if Trump loses and ends up in the tar pits of Vegas or if the Deep State loses and ends up buried in the swamps of Washington DC, hopefully democracy will be the ultimate winner. http://jpstillwater.blogspot.com/2017/01/why-im-going-to-las-vegas-on-valentines.html
PS: The reptilian part of the human brain still seems to be the boss of most human mental operations these days. Even after almost a million disastrous years of this kind of thinking, since even before caveman times, many of us still function mainly from the depths of our reptile cortex — and still believe that full-spectrum dominance will solve any problem. But as St. Valentine constantly reminds us, love is a much sharper tool.
But Trump and the Deep State aren’t the only ones who still think like dinosaurs. There is also the Pentagon, ISIS, the Israeli/Saudi alliance, the para-military police up at Standing Rock, serial killers, child abusers, Klan members, banksters, gang-bangers and other hooligans of all types. The list goes on and on. However, like the T-Rex and the brontosaurus before them, these outdated reptiles are also doomed to extinction.
But, sadly, if these gross dinosaurs with expired sell-by dates who now run our show don’t “get their minds right” immediately, the rest of us evolving types who try very hard to live in the image of MLK, JFK, Gandhi and even Buddha and Jesus — we also are gonna be doomed, right along with the reptiles of Wall Street and War Street.
