The guy who got Bin Laden (and told you to make your bed), Admiral William McRaven — “if you want to change the world, start off by making your bed” — now writes: Our Republic Is under Attack from the President.
How does 40% of the country not see that he has brought dishonor to his office and his country? How do we get them to read McRaven and reconsider their enthusiasm for someone who is by all objective measures a lying fascist sociopath?*
On the specific matter of Syria, even most elected Republicans seem to get that the winners are not the Kurds and “civilization” . . . as Trump boasts . . . but, rather, Putin, Iran, ISIS, and Turkey. On that score, take three minutes to watch Captain Alan Kennedy of the Colorado National Guard: I Joined the Army to Prevent Genocide, Not to Pave the Way for One.
With any luck, it truly “couldn’t happen here.” But this frightening story of press-intimidation in the Philippines makes one wonder how far down the path Trump and his enablers. like Carl and Peter, have already taken us.
