Taking action, president releases memo
Donald Trump does it again. Whether you voted for him or for someone else, our president does keep the press busy with his administration’s workings. He must have been a student of Will Rogers. Will Rogers was reported to devote a lot of his humor poking fun at “the weak habit of substituting talk for action.”
No one can complain that Donald Trump is all talk. The Donald might use Twitter a lot but he does keep Washington guessing about his next decision. The decision to declassify a House of Representatives memo had every news program plus all newspapers trying to predict the horrible consequences that would befall our nation because we might learn the truth about the Washington swamp.
It frightens me to think about all the attempts to discredit our president apparently because he is not a part of the establishment and therefore can’t be trusted to “bury” certain facts the way Washington might like. Is there anyone reading this who would expect any of the other potential presidential candidates to have declassified the memo published by the House concerning the investigation of Russian participation in the presidential campaign? Which candidate Republican or Democrat would go so far as to allow you and me to see and hear the details of that memo? To me, the information has a lot less to do with Trump’s campaign getting support from the Russians than it does with how our major security organizations work with the powerful people in our nation’s capital. Would any of the other Republican presidential candidates or Hillary Clinton be so bold as to question the FBI?
This issue of a special counsel to investigate a supposed connection between Trump’s campaign and Russia smacks of a well-used “kettle calling a campfire pot black” phrase. Our nation’s history reveals that without the French connection, our Revolution would have failed. How is that for another nation intervening in the outcome of a campaign? Or, who questions why we are so active with our efforts in so many countries — Cuba, Syria and a host of other nations — all in the name of security. How many counties do we send money to (financial aid) and intellectual support (intelligence) when they are having an election or revolution?
Our nation is so busy promoting our wealthy and active life style with activities that keep us too busy to question what really goes on in Washington. How can you be concerned with wire taps in Washington when you are on a cruise in the Caribbean? Where do you find politics on a roller coaster ride in Disney World?
