Which ever way the wind blows, Donald Trump chooses afterward as to whether, or not, he played an active roll in the whatever happened! When things go well, Donald is out front, claiming every last bit of credit—regardless of whoever rightfully was responsible. On the other than, however, when the shit hits the fan, Donald acts like that was the first that he had heard of it. Trump never gets his hands dirty!
For instance, when four Army Green Berets were killed in Niger, earlier this month, it took him twelve days to even acknowledge it, and then he began running feud with one of the widows. Apparently, the soldiers were ambushed under questionable circumstances, and the Pentagon has been investigating.
Trump stated recently that he did not “technically” authorize the combat action. Now, Donald, isn’t that your Secretary of Defense running the Pentagon? Why would the so-called Commander-in-Chief receive a free pass, while the battlefield commander could be relieved of his Command?
Here’s where Steve Bannon, the Puppet Master, plays a vital role on Donald Trump’s behalf!. This prior post provides an earlier description of Steve Bannon’s role in the Trump Regime.
In that earlier post, I had suggested that Donald Trump allows Bannon, who maintains a close relationship with the Ultra Fringe White Supremacist Wing of the Trump Political Base, to pull many strings from behind the scenes. Over the past nine months that Trump has been in office, Bannon has played his evil role, off and on, both from within the White House, and from The Shadows. Through it all, Bannon and Trump have retained a close personal relationship.
Bannon has been attacking political opponents of Trump, and without shirking back into the shadows. Perhaps the most visible target recently has been Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who Trump has previously castigated; however, he is currently counting on McConnell to pass his Health Care and Tax Scams. Meanwhile, Bannon has established a Super Pac to Dump Mitch.
Lastly, let’s consider the 25th Amendment, which, at least temporarily, enables a majority of the Vice President and Cabinet, to relieve the President when they believe that he is unable to fulfill the duties of his office. When Donald Trump supposedly “Drained the Swamp,” he seems to have replaced the inhabitants with even more dangerous swamp creatures.
Just about every Cabinet member is a billionaire, who had worked in the various industries, which they are now supposed to regulate? Would they truly damage the respective industries that they expect to return to? Apparently, Trump selected the fresher, more dangerous Swamp Creatures, so they wouldn’t dare countermand his regulatory goals!
Meanwhile, Steve Bannon is shirking more openly, this time; but, still pulling the strings which Donald Trump wants to keep hidden.
