Letter from America: Trump derangement syndrome/Some spooky stories

Donald Trump

There was a time in US politics when American politicians were proud of building coalitions across party lines.

The great Democratic Speaker Tipp O’Neal butted heads with the Republican president Ronald Reagan but remained friends enough to play golf together.

Since the presidency of Republican George W. Bush, 2001-2007, Democrats developed such a hatred of Bush and his war mongering policies that a medical doctor, Charles Krauthammer, coined the phrase Bush derangement syndrome (2003).

It was the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency, nay, the very existence of George W. Bush.

If Bush stumbled when climbing a helicopter, Cable News Network made it a headline.

The syndrome became deeply rooted in the Democratic Party during the Donald Trump, 2016-2020.

Fearing his return, the Democrats decided to dismantle everything that can attribute to Trump and possibly throw him in jail.

In the effort, they captured state organs, the Federal Bureau of Investigations and Department of Justice, making them organs of the party.

By doing so, to their terrible discomfort, they opened a pandora’s box and are now running like wet chickens trying to put back the lid.

Here is what Trump said yesterday.

“Some people HATE the fact that I got along well with President Putin of Russia,” he tweeted. “They would rather go to war than see this. It’s called Trump Derangement Syndrome!”

In the war in the Ukraine, the US “jumped” into the war without asking itself these questions.

Is this a European war or is it an American war?

American experience in Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq is that once in, one never gets out quickly. Who will pay the cost?

To cut the story short, the US Senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders says that Russia has a case against being surrounded by Nato allies if Ukraine becomes a member. The Nato does not tolerate Latin American governments making alliances with Russia or China.

Therefore, the US has no business pressuring the Ukraine.

Point number one.

The war has been going on for a year now. In March 2022, the US sent massive supplies estimated at US$5 billion.

In August, the Ukrainians asked for more, US$13 billion was spent. In December the Ukraine asked for more, Biden now asked Congress for US$800 billion.

The US is having problems with the Germans about whether US weapons or German weapons are more effective. The issue, however, is that this is just like previous wars, it is a war of stealth. It goes on forever. And wait for this one. Already, the US is carrying 80% of the burden.

French President Macron is laughing under his breath — the stupid Americans.

That is point two.

More importantly, Democrats find themselves at the mercy of what former president General Dwight Eisenhower, warned the nation, at the mercy of the industrial-military complex.

The evil weapons manufacturers, who get fat profits from war, want the Defense Department to commit to a multi-year contract. They say that they are running out of ammunition to send to Ukraine.

That is point number three. The US becomes the world’s supplier of killer weapons while 5 million Ukrainians are already in refugee status and many more will die from the winter cold.

The US is not making any friends in Europe. The Russia to German Nord Stream pipeline was bombed twice. In its place the US is shipping gas and oil supplies at three times the price in the US and eight times the price charged by Russia. The Germans are breathing dirty words against Yankee capitalism.

Point number four.

But because of their hatred of Trump, and the politicisation of the FBI and the Justice Department, the Democrats are in hot soup.

In order to finish Trump once and for all, the FBI raided his home on August 8, 2022, on trumped charges of keeping government documents.

The spooks breathed fire and brimstone and swore that nobody was above the law (except themselves). The issue here is that this spooky action had never been done in the history of the country for 300 years.

But wait for the mother of all spooks.

To cut a long story short. Biden was sitting on secret documents since he left office in 2016. The spooks knew about it about November 2, before the elections.

 Between leaving the White House, these papers were “somewhere” until one year later when they reached Biden Penn Centre.

In any case, Biden’s spooks at the Justice Department did not open them until after the election on November 14th.

Use your imagination. They were dumped there just before the elections.

Second stage; December 20th Biden’s spooks found a second batch in his garage next to his Corvette.

Two days later, another batch was found in Biden’s “room.”

January 20, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, at last decides to make a clean sweep. After 14 hours of search, they find more documents. The FBI did not break into Biden’s house. They were discreet and friendly. Here is the big deal.

Republican Senator James Comer, chairperson of the Congressional Committee says these bad words; “According to a whistleblower, Biden documents reveal that he (Biden) had office space to work on and was  involved in a deal to sell American gas to China in 2017.”

But the mother of all spooky stories is the question. Why is the spooky FBI revealing all these secrets now?

Surely, they knew about them years ago.

Siloam Radio, a spooky right wing station, believes that these spooks (called the Deep State-they work in darkness) have decided that both Biden and Trump must be dumped now before the next election. Trump is too dangerous to their interests and Biden is doddering and confused by age.

Both Trump and Biden are bad news for the Deep State.
