Now that we are over Trump having been elected president of these United States, what’s next?
Many people have extolled his election and claim it was an act and the will of God. I too believe it was an act and the will of god – and the small “g” is no typo. And who is this god? Us – the collective us without God! Doing our own thing, on our own terms, running our own lives and pushing God out of the picture because god is such a comfortable deity. That god we control!
We are all aware that the major thing Trump has done is to rip the cover so many in these United States have put on what we do and have done to create this fantastic country. He has taken our carefully crafted and traditional narrative about our identity, history, culture and exposed its bones. He has exposed all of us to the reality of who we are and if you look closely he has also called out the institutions we have and are creating.
The first thing that really is disturbing in this is all of the generals in his administration. Violating our long in place traditions. Why? Because of all of those non-thinking and non-caring news people who are singing the praises of these generals and describing how they are going to rise above Trump, do their work as substitute under-cover presidents, while controlling Trump and save us all from his racism-sexism-xenophobia so we can again start walking into the sunset together. All of this done by our generals? Our saviors? Like Russia did and does and like Germany did under Hitler? Wasn’t Hitlers’ elevating the ‘right’ generals what accelerated and helped fuel, protect and grow his power and administration?
Ignore the recent history of these generals – we have already pointed out that his Chief of Staff General was head of Homeland Security when it was doing all of the massive rounding up; trying to deport huge numbers of people until stopped by the Courts; and very efficiently and quickly put in place Trump’s campaign to ‘throw the Muslims out and don’t let anymore Muslims in” campaign. A campaign strong and viable enough to make a mess of our transportation system and the lives of tens of thousands of people – even reaching to some who were in the air at the time his campaign went into effect and before the court’s stopped it. We won’t waste space talking about the rest of the generals, but they could all be so grouped. Isn’t that slightly reminiscent of how Hitler Captured Germany and with his loyal generals turned it into a fascist, horriblist state complete with ovens etc.? Isn’t that why we have not had so many generals in an American presidential administration before? So there would be no yielding to temptation?
Let us drop the major talk about racism and sexism, which is all out and well known in every corner of the globe – let’s talk about what else we are trying hard to ignore.
Trump is/was the answer to a lot of peoples’ prayers. Specifically, those wanting a businessman as president. That would show the world how great we are and how we mean business. He would re-organize this country and move it to the top of the heap again. We needed the efficiency and all else that a businessman would bring to the presidency.
Well now we have a businessman and thank God he is Donald Trump.
Let’s look at the legacy of some other businessmen!
When you take a look – close look – at American businesses and those management people who have reached the top – notice anything very much like Trump and the administration he is trying to establish? They are all White – Male – with similar Character. Although I am sure the ones we would want as president, after seeing the mess Trump is making, would be the button down collar, silk suit, understated, quiet, never in the news kind of person, who nevertheless does much cleaner and untraceably and unstoppably what Trump is doing with great unwanted fanfare. My God sent us a businessman who shows and incorporates into himself the character traits of them all, but with those character traits not covered, but public. You are living through and are a part of an old fashioned morality play.
Take a look at how Trump is functioning and you will understand why it was necessary to create an EPA. Why? Because of the horribly unethical way top corporate people in these United States carried out what they perceived as their jobs – deliver the most assets possible to themselves and make sure a little was left over to quiet their stockholders. Take all and leave little to nothing. Look closer and you will see why we need an HUD. Look even closer and you will see why this government has been forced by its citizens to form all of these departments – draining money from other things that need to get done, but departments we can’t survive without because the business men in charge were draining the citizens of this country – were making all of us ill without any thought to the fact that those illnesses would also affect them.
Take a look at the saga of the tobacco companies. How hard did and do those ‘businessmen’ fight to keep marketing and selling cigarettes even after health research showed the damage cigarettes were doing to the general population – those who smoked and those who didn’t but inhaled that second hand smoke.
Many of them died of lung cancer. Did they really think they could continue on the path they were going and not be infected with the evil they were spewing out to the rest of us?
Trump – such a good businessman – pulled us out of all of the climate change groups and told us there was no problem; it was all public hysteria; the money could be better spent on him and his friends – and then along came God and said “Thou shalt not…”. Looking at the last few days, I don’t know about Trump, but I am quaking in my shoes and I didn’t do the things he did against climate change. I tried to work for climate change, but I noticed in Sodom and Gomorrha the entire society paid. In this society that would include me.
Wherever you look, the only difference between Trump and the rest of our business institutional management teams is those others have acquired a smooth exterior; an ability to hide what they are doing; a way to show the public through marketing and advertising that they need garbage, disease and all the other gook being pedaled to them and a strong and constant denial supported by many of us that they are certainly doing everything they can for homelessness, to eliminate racism and sexism and they certainly don’t want xenophobia to exist – they love everybody, are working for the good of everybody, let’s not look at the multi-billions going to continue the ugly and that they are raking off for themselves.
Drop down to the bottom line and Trump is simply doing everything he can to keep up with those he considers his “brothers”. It is probably of great pain and hurt to him that they are rejecting him and casting him in as negative a light as possible and will or have already dumped him – not because of what he has done, which parallels what they are doing. Not because of the wreck he is making of this country because they are doing the same thing. Not because of the racism and sexism he has shown the world the United States has and is still continuing to practice ruining millions of lives in the process, but because the way he has gone about doing all of this.
Its not that they dislike him – they are embarrassed by his process. The very public and uncovered and raw way he has and is going about bringing in the KKK, the White Nationalists – following the WN’s program and putting it in place as quickly as he can, knocking over everything that is sacred in the process. They, the corporate community, has been doing that for generations and were good at it, although quietly with a strong togetherness that was difficult to break to bring about change. They are unhappy with him and dislike him because he is ruining what has been a good thing for them. Trump doesn’t know how to do what he is doing under cover so he can’t be blamed or maligned for his actions and they will be the stronger for being so covered up and un touchable. Trump, instead, has managed to awaken that sleeping giant – the American Middle Class – and we are not happy campers.
How could so few people have gathered for themselves the billions of dollars and the tools of capitalism leaving next to nothing for the rest of us. Leaving only enough so that we can fight amongst each other, spreading blame where there is no blame and letting the real guilty culprits continue on their greedy paths.
Is there an answer? The one thing we are not, is honest. And the one thing we do not do is love one another. We love our own. We deny and lie about everything else. We have created a society which oppresses the rest of the world and we were very proud of that achievement. We elected Trump for that to continue and grow.
Trump carps on bringing jobs back to America. Trump and his family have not moved to bring jobs from their companies back to America so this huge marketing program, which has been the Trump for President campaign was really held to blind the rest of us – and it has been successful. Why would the top business people bring jobs back to America where they have to pay American wages when they can continue to allow those jobs to be done by “foreigners” in other countries where the wages are so low people cannot survive. Why can’t they survive? Because they have given up their own cultural values to follow those of America and they need an American lifestyle to do that. Those business people hold up that American lifestyle as though it is the holy grail and most of us follow it expecting to find its end and life happily ever after. We have enslaved most of the rest of the world – except those who can be called white – so a few can live a life with more money and assets than thousands could spend in a thousand lifetimes. Allowing those “foreigners” into the U. S. would jeopardize all of that. Keeping them in their own countries provides the people power to continue that kind of oppression upon which our lifestyle depends.
Our response to that tragedy, which has been created by and for us, was to elect a Donald Trump expecting him to do the same for the rest of us that was done for him and his ‘peers’. Taking his supporters for rides in his helicopter during the campaign – parking his private jet and having his rallies with that jet in the background, etc. helped to blind many to the reality and truth of who he is and how he achieved his goals.
Trump is doing, crudely and quickly, what his business peers have been trying to do incrementally for generations. In that he is succeeding beyond his or their wildest dreams.
They will allow him the slack to achieve those goals – or as much of those goals as possible – and because they can’t have that stain on their reputations and careers, they will take him down crudely.
And there ends today’s session with the Bettina Oracle. Until next time!
