It has been said that where there is smoke, there is fire. If that is true, there has been smoke coming out of a famous NYC building owned by you know who for a very long time.
Earlier this week, New York stateAttorney GeneralLetitia “Tish” James announced that she has filed a lawsuit against he who shall not be named, and his three eldest children. In short, it claims that their namesake organization and its leadership have been committing financial fraud as a standard business model for years.
Of course, his response was a racist slur. Which we have learned over the years is par for the course.
As pointed out in yesterday’s episode of the podcastThe New Abnormal (which starts at 5:19), both James and Willis are African American women. I think it speaks to where this country is going politically. These women understand that if they don’t stand up for what is right and the rule of law, there is a chance that no one will.
The only way to shut down a bully is to beat them at their own game. The former President is a bully. Until it is made crystal clear that he and his cronies are not above the law, they will continue to act with impunity.
The role of any politician at any level of government is to serve the voting public, not themselves or their career. But for everyone in government who knows who they are indebted to, there are others who believe that they must cater to their donors or their base first.
The major headlines this week around you know who are the following: the FBI searched (and found) boxes of classified documents in Mar-a-Lago that should have gone to the National Archives when he left office. If the rumors are true, some of what was found include nuclear codes that could have fallen into and/or been given to government officials from Saudi Arabia.
Though the complete description of what was taken has not been released, this announcement by itself should be enough to make all Americans ask ourselves if we really want this man as President for another 4 years. The answer should obviously be no. But there are too many who have drunk the Kool-Aid and believe his lies.
On Wednesday, after using multiple bullshit excuses to get out of a scheduled deposition in front of New York Attorney GeneralTish James, he finally met with the AG and her team. The only answer he gave in the affirmative was his name. For every other question, he responded by pleading the fifth amendment.
What is not surprising about this choice is that it is his usual hypocritical response. In the past, he claimed that only criminals and mobsters used this tactic. But now that it fits his needs, he has decided to use it to his advantage.
He who shall not be named is more than an egotistical used car salesman con artist who has taken this country for a ride. He is dangerous and not unwilling to do anything he can to stay in power and in the headlines.
For the sake our nation and our chldren, I beg and plead with my fellow Americans. D0 not give him the figurative oxygen. Do not allow him to run for office. If we are to move forward, he must become an insignificant fly who can be swatted away for good.
