…the latest sackings at the Trump White House & Casino this week show Trump is now so comfortable in his ignorance that he will  throw any semblance of caution to the wind and surround himself with people who flatter his ego rather than serve the Office.

What kind of man is Donald Trump really?

Most consider this image to best sum up his cabinet…

…some see him as the embodiment of the Dark Side of the Force…

…he sees himself as a military hero and leader…

…while I personally view him as a human hamburger…

…the latest sackings at the Trump White House & Casino this week show Trump is now so comfortable in his ignorance that he will  throw any semblance of caution to the wind and surround himself with people who flatter his ego rather than serve the Office.

The steel tariffs show his political instincts to protect the working classes who globalisation has economically damaged and who voted for him are still sharp and his desire to start a trade war with China and Europe shows he wants to escalate global turmoil.

The insanity of evangelical voters still supporting Trump after the porn star revelations highlights how deeply entrenched their self-fulfilling death cult prophesy really is.

It’s the North Korean gamble that is most interesting.

Chinese Intelligence must have informed North Korea that Trump really does want to try a military attack on them and thatches’ crazy enough to try it. This has freaked the North Korean regime out enough to force them to the table. If Trump manages to get North Korea to agree to stopping their nuclear program, Trump will take that enormous diplomatic win with his tax cuts and bloody wall and win 2020.

Trump understands cultural resentment and the gnawing projection of self loathing at the heart of the working classes in America better than the Democrats ever could.

    Brilliant getup picture that was.

    uyes the Washington swamp is now a fucking pit of snakes with Hillary and her ilk slithering around in it, son maybe Trump needs to drop a few gallons of petrol into the swamp finally and light a match.

      looks like we need to be doing a bit of swamp cleaning ourselves

        I’m more worried about the Aupouri pirates and their aquifer draining.

        Avocados are nice but – c’mon, people! Other people who’ve been there for much longer, need that water, too. And don’t want to find any salty taste in the kettle due to sea water sneaking in.

        There’s a lot of vital wetland in Northland. And population pressure from further south. We’ll hope that Eugenie Sage can get her skates on; get more funding for DoC, and get those critical areas protected before the next swarm of developers hits the ‘scrubland’.

        Fingers crossed, eh?

    There is such thing as free trade why do they continue to call it this its a all a farcical.

    He can tariff all he wants; his fellow ‘entrepreneurs’ and overpaid CEOs were the people who followed Carnegie’s rule about ‘shift the business to kill the union’.

    Even the NAFTA agreement didn’t help save small towns and businesses. Work that used to come north stayed in Mexico.

    Basics such as reprocessing plastics and metals – shipped off to China because American workers ‘cost too much’. (China has cut back now because their younger people are now better educated and unwilling to take on mucky jobs.)

    Bernie Sanders has been holding town hall meetings and getting coverage yet, unless he has a strong net of people who can turn the rhetoric into action and upgraded employment, he’s ‘candle in the wind’.

    The affluent people Trump twitters to are part of the problem from way back. I wouldn’t expect solutions from that quarter.

    All attempts to ‘put America back on track’ are doomed to failure.

    America gained it dominant position in the world as a consequence of easy-to-extract oil and other easy-to extract resources, i.e. forests just waiting to be cut down, underground water just waiting to be sucked out of the ground, high-quality coal just waiting to be dug up and burned, thick topsoil full of nutrient just waiting to be planted, gold and silver reserves just waiting to fund money-printing and foreign wars..

    All factors that ‘made America great’ have been squandered in an orgy of stupidity and overconsumption that lasted many decades.

    Now all the chickens are coming home to roost.

    hear hear, steve earnshaw, Martyn has always rubbished Trump,who has done more for America in a year than other presidents.
    I wonder how many other presidents have the strength and commitment to keep going with the likes of deep state creeps, always looking to fault Trump,Msm never has a good thing to say about Trump,they are part of the swamp
    Martyn must be a Dem supporter,not all left partys are honest.Not all republicans are either,the deep state fears Trump because he is getting the better of them.
