Right now, Trump is trying to become a war president. Given Russia-gate, that is the only way Trump can stay in power or be redeemed. It also serves to divert attention from his crimes, nonchalance, lying and incompetence.
But what would a DEM leader actually do or say now about Korea? We don’t know. They are quiet today. This is not smart. The subconscious public meme will be “the Dem’s don’t know how to deal with war threats, so they are quiet”.
It’s logical too. If Dem’s are silent now, how can they really be counted on in true war times? It’s not much different than the way Hillary ignored those in fly-over country.
Democratic representatives and hopefuls: Get vocal and fast! Next week is way too late.
It would be nice to hear from Bernie on this. He is thought of as a social programs champion. Good. But that may not be enough. He was thought of as weak of foreign policy, right?
And if Trump figures out how to coordinate a war effort with Russia, you can kiss any semblance of control over our country goodbye for many years. That may even be happening right now. I would not put this past them. Russia helped Korea get nuclear weapons. This could be a coordinated dance to get Putin/Trump back on top.
I went to Penn with Trump. He’s not smart or even educated. But he will figure this out. He already likes the idea of being a wartime president. You can see him loving it today.
Stay ahead of him and the GOP and Putin!
Please. Pass this message up the chain.
DEMS: Think of how you would handle it, and just say it. That’s all that is needed. I would say this if I were president – (and I am way more qualified than Trump, I am sure.)
This is what I would say:
Kim-Jong Il: Seeing as North Korea is developing nuclear weapons, we have to consider the threats you are making to be sincere. And so, we must immediately defend ourselves. We are now making plans to do so. Some plans you will hear about – they are our overt plans. Some plans will be covert, like the plans we made against Osama Bin Laden.
But we are dealing with this now and upon the next threat or test missile we will be forced to deploy. Rest assured that American security is our highest priority.
PS. It can’t be a hollow threat. Myself, I would take him out the way we took out Bin Laden. He is not hiding. Next threat. I would do a secret op. But that’s me.
Whatever you decide, Dem’s you need to get vocal or you will lose the right to govern the USA in a war-threatened world.
Do you get that?
PPS. It feels like this could be a setup to make Trump look presidential. If Korea stops tests for a few months, perhaps by agreement with the powers that be, Trump comes off looking smart. We will see.
