I’m still here in Las Vegas, covered in neon and surrounded by false hopes. But still and all, riding up and down The Strip in the front seat of the Deuce bus at night is magical, almost like Christmas; there are that many colored lights.
But the towering Trump building here, rather like Trump’s foreign policy, is pretty much in darkness at this point. Why is that? Some say that it is because he forgot to apply for a casino license. I should wander over there tomorrow and find out. Investigative reporting at its best. https://consortiumnews.com/2017/02/11/deciphering-trumps-opaque-foreign-policy/
Many of the things that President Trump is doing right now are also foolhardy, forgetful and half-baked. Many of the things that he is doing right now are also divisive, dangerous and even downright un-Christian and mean. However, he is doing one important thing right — he is going after the CIA. https://www.thenation.com/article/kremlin-baiting-president-trump-without-facts-must-stop/
You remember the CIA, don’t you? The folks who gave us the Kennedy assassination, the Vietnam debacle, the tortured nightmares of African and Latin American dictatorships one after another and that tragic mess in the Middle East http://www.globalresearch.ca/thank-you-for-supporting-al-qaeda-cia-honors-major-terrorist-financier-for-successful-cooperation/5574445
I wouldn’t put it past the CIA to have had a hand in creating 9-11 either but still can’t prove it — at this point. http://punklawyer.com/2017/02/16/has-it-happened-here/
So. Trump stands up to the CIA. Gotta give him snaps for that. But going against the CIA is now (and always has been) a big fat no-no inside the Beltway, and so Trump will have to pay for his mistake — hopefully not with his life. Hopefully his sudden retirement will not involve plutonium or shoes made out of cement. http://www.counterpunch.org/2017/02/17/rogue-elephant-rising-the-cia-as-kingslayer/
And then suddenly Trump will be gone. Just like that. And then the American media will be all cheering at the top of its lungs — gambling on the mistaken idea that what comes after Trump will be better than him. That the CIA and the Deep State will suddenly start being kind to both us peons and to American democracy once Trump is gone. http://mondoweiss.net/2017/02/interferes-politics-scandal/
But, as they say in Las Vegas, that will be one sucker bet.
