John McCain: Guardrails
Ann: Good morning, John, you have something for the blog.
John: Yes, Annie, I do. It seems that our current administration has sunk to yet another low in sending out lies and deliberately misleading the public as to the state of our President’s health. While there can be some justification for this, i.e. the concealing of weaknesses from foreign adversaries, in this case their performance on this stage has merely served to underline their own incompetence, arrogance, and, yes, stupidity.
After so many lies you would think they would begin to get a clue that out front, ahead of a situation is better than being caught with your pants down after the fact when you have blatantly lied to all and sundry. But no, not this clown show.
And yet the life and death of American citizens to Covid and potentially around the world is no laughing matter. However, what I see behind the scenes that I wanted to share with you today is the commitment of many the cabinet and military to keep a lid on this president’s more insane impulses.
The light is dawning even on these marbleheads. It is as bad as it looks and worse. Even the craven enablers in my former party are just trying to get what they can and then get rid of him. His own military commanders are putting up roadblocks as is his department of defense and his FBI.
We can take comfort that there are some folks at the wheel in spite of all appearances to the contrary. The debacle made it clear that the worm has turned, the thread has come unraveled, and placating the beast is now the only game in town so as to keep him from causing a third world war. That is not going to happen because there are guardrails set up to keep him in his lane.
My friends, we are coming to the end of this national nightmare, and soon will have to face the task of rebuilding a society in our creator’s image. We can thank Donald Trump for showing us who we do not want to be as we begin that process.
