National Security Advisors seem snakebit in Trump world. Either they don’t last very long, or they come down with COVID-19. At least the current one, Robert O’Brien has.

The image above this piece was taken in London — a people with Boris Johnson in charge and yet they still can laugh at us. And these signs and posters have become commonplace in Europe and other countries. We are the laughing stock of the entire world. Our diplomatic relationships are eroding swiftly. China closed one of our consulates recently after it became outraged that the Trump administration ordered the Houston consulate closed and took the unprecedented step of harboring a Chinese national who is wanted by the FBI in connection with the theft of intellectual property. One of their officials said, “Sheltering a defendant in a criminal case by using the diplomatic immunity of a consular building, if true, is really extraordinary.”

These are the signs of the times, literally and figuratively and it’s surprising we haven’t seen more. We are totally disgraced in the world right now and the disgrace does not lie solely with Donald Trump, by any means. He’s just a loud mouth game show host. He doesn’t know how government works. But McConnell and Graham and all the other Trump enablers in the Senate do know. And it’s pretty obvious that their attitude is, “I got mine, you worry.” They seem to be just fine with letting America go to Hell on their watch.

I hope there is a blue tsunami, because it’s going to take a political event of tsunami proportions to wash clean the excrement in our nation’s capitol.

I think multiple tsunamis are called for.

A few rinse, then a few wash, tsunamis.

It’s not just Europe, we’re the laughing stock of Asia also…

A comment overheard in a cafe in France:
“It’s so sad, what’s happened to America.”
“Oui, but you know it was never a civilized country.”

Oscar Wilde, in his signature novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, spoke of how all good Americans go to France when they die. The bad ones? They go to America. Now more true than ever, sadly.

The world isn’t just laughing at us. Our allies no longer trust us. Oh, they laugh at us to, but the kind of international cooperation needed for us to maintain and protect our interests around the world is badly broken and won’t be easily repaired. Even if/when it is the scars will remain visible forever. What I fear most is that it will be the mythical wound to Lancelot from Excalibur that can never heal. Every time I hear Trump or one of his GOP supplicants talk about our being the world’s leader I think back to the U.N. General… Read more »

Respectfully, after three years of Trump, did ANYTHING make you think otherwise? The neo-cons shall hate him for destroying their dreams of permanent American dominance (never you mind THEIR part in making all this come to pass…assholes!). We have hit the point that Britain did in the mid-1970s (as symbolized by John Le Carre’s classic novel Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) where we are finally forced to admit a good many of our national myths no longer apply.

Actually, since November 2016 I’ve been thinking and saying that Bush 43 was our mulligan and that Trump would force our allies to accept that not only was Bush 43 not an aberration, but that the same (or worse) could happen again. And that as a result we’d never again be in the same position in terms of world leadership because when the world’s biggest economic and military power can’t be trusted to elect Presidents that actually are up to the job, that they can no longer count on the United States then they will begin the difficult process of… Read more »

Exactly right Denis. You hit the nail on the head. As we learned from bush to Trump, it’s not THIS one that’s the problem, it’s the next one. And now that we’ve seen how many people LOVE Trum for exactly the reaons so many can’t stand him, we need to know that the people who walk around saying “I am NOT going to curtail my freedom so someone else can be happy that I’m wearing a mask FOR THEM!” These are the self-obsessed imbeciles that make for the Trumps of this world. Even if there’s a blue tsunami in 100… Read more »

So the answer to my question is “no”, then?

Trump is the enema of the people. What’s dung is dung and cannot be undung.

I had a dream last night. Someone placed a $10,000 bounty on the capture (not kill) one of Trump (Erik Prince’s) private army, waterboarded him and found out exactly who paid for this war on American citizens, how much they are paid, etc. We have to find out the origins of Trump Public Enema #1 war on American strategy. , Or as I also call him President IQAnon.

I too think someone is paying people to riot at the BLM protests. I think it’s Trump or his ass hat sons. That’s how he’s going to steal the election. If a cop gets killed all the better to his way of thinking. A good excuse to take over cities and delay the election.

Probably not. There simply is not enough of them. On July 24, DHS reported there were 1500 admittedly peaceful protesters and a few rioters. Seven were arrested. Right-wing extremists, particularly self-described Boogaloo Boys, have stated that their goals is to instigate a hot insurgency by assassinating law enforcement officers. The FBI has charged several. There are a few Antifa, but not anywhere the number the right wishes there were. The FBI says most rioters are random hooligans with no connections to Antifa. Many rioters are responding to gratuitous violence at the hands of unidentified “Federal” officers,who appear to be untrained… Read more »

I understand the researcher has been arrested. The charges are because she didn’t report her military connection on her visa application.

I have had lots of different visas in my passport,but I do not recall a single application where I was asked about military service or connections. As a US citizen, naturally I have never had a US visa. Does the application ask about military service? And so what? Lots of people, even the Chinese,serve in their nation’s military at some point. That does not make them or our vets prima facie spies.
