My, my, my. Things sure are getting interesting, aren’t they?
Here are three good night/early morning suggested sources for your reading pleasure.
We’re Saved by His Idiocy
Krugman plows no new ground here, but I do like to see someone of national prominence agreeing with a point I have often made.
Losing the Military
Mark Bowden, Top Military Officers Unload on Trump: The commander in chief is impulsive, disdains expertise, and gets his intelligence briefings from Fox News. What does this mean for those on the front lines?
And it’s not just the top brass. Reports are beginning to come in telling of the despair of the Special Forces over the treatment of their Kurdish brothers.
And do, please, remember that every Trump-loving, Fox-viewing family out there in the great American heartland has sons and daughters and cousins in the U.S. military.
Losing the Evangelicals
Nancy LeTourneau, How Trump Betrayed the Court Evangelicals
That would be by letting the Turks have at the Kurds, who count many Christians among their number.
But mark my words, folks. The “court evangelicals”—the likes of Pat Robertson and Franklin Graham: Rabbi Jesus had their number. These folks are no more Christian than Xi Jinping is a Marxist.
They are glomming on to Trump’s weakness. The disembodied hand is beginning to write on the wall: “M E N E M E N …”
When the time comes, they’re going to toss Trump in the trash like a used condom.
