ROMNEY WORDSWORTH – It is Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016, and you know what that means: No, I’m not talking about the 75th anniversary of the German invasion of the Soviet Union under Operation Barbarossa in 1941, I’m talking about Trumpday! Let’s get started.
Amid a 3 week string of bad press and constant media attacks, Donald Trump fired his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski. Leaks from the Trump Campaign indicated that top Trump operative Paul Manafort found that he could not work with the abrasive and narcissistic Lewandowski, and gave Trump an ultimatum that either Lewandowski goes in 48 hours, or Manafort would. Manafort is spearheading the Trump effort to corral delegates if a floor fight erupts at the convention. With Lewandowski having been fired and escorted out of Trump Tower in Manhattan, it appears that Trump and his advisors were unwilling to lose Manafort. When confronted by Trump and allegedly asked what he was doing about declining poll numbers, a loss of control over the daily narrative, and nearly non-existent fund raising, the only thing that Lewandowski could offer was to reveal Trump’s pick for Vice-President early. That is a hold card that Trump is not willing to play before the convention, and he purportedly fired Lewandowski on the spot.
Over on the Democrat side of the race, Mrs. Clinton has gone on the attack, pounding home the idea that Trump is too unstable and dangerous to trust with nuclear weapons, American foreign policy, or the domestic economy. This is richly ironic given that this is the same week a former Secret Service Agent, Gary Byrne’s tell all book, “Crisis of Character”, is being released about the Clinton White House. In the book, it is Hillary that comes off as the dangerous one with an irrational temper, throwing a bible at the back of the head of a Secret Service Agent, telling the uniformed Marine Honor Guard to go “F**k themselves”, and physically attacking Bill Clinton often enough that the Secret Service nearly arrested her more than once. Bill Clinton’s philandering in the White House was even more wide spread than previously suspected. Horn Dog Bill was doing Monica Lewinski; that we all knew. What we didn’t know was that Bill was cheating on Monica with a second mistress, Eleanor Mondale, the late daughter of Walter Mondale, who died of cancer in 2011. Bill Clinton was also simultaneously having an affair with a secretary in the West Wing. So prolific was Bill Clinton’s serial adultery that the Secret Service was forced to collect bags full of semen and lipstick stained White House embroidered towels for surreptitious off-site disposal.
Of course, it is entirely wrong, and to the detriment of the Republic, to have our Secret Service morph into a Praetorian Guard. They should only be concerned with protecting the life of the occupant of the Oval Office, and not his reputation, nor the irrational outbursts of a future Madame President.
Likewise, it does the Republic no good to have a sycophantic mainstream press, like the one we have, which is black listing Mr. Byrne and his book, acting as the self-appointed press agents of Hillary Clinton rather than as an independent watchdog. Omar Mateen, the Orlando mass shooter, was a registered Democrat and Hillary Clinton supporter. Imagine if the situation were reversed, and the killer turned out to be a registered Republican and Donald Trump supporter. The press would be hounding Trump with questions from now to November about it, trying its best to link the candidate to the killer. No such questions for Hillary Clinton, the nation’s Nurse Ratched. Must be nice to have the Press looking out for your candidacy like that. No wonder she is doing so well right now against Donald Trump.
I still predict that events will unfold between now and November that will illustrate the failures of the Obama-Clinton Team in such spectacular fashion that even the Palace Guard Media can’t cover it up.
