IF DONALD TRUMP IS YOUR PRESIDENT, HOLD YOUR PRESIDENT ACCOUNTABLE

Those who voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Democratic primaries are more responsible for Donald Trump’s presidency than those who voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 Republican primaries.

And the most deplorable Americans since President Trump’s inauguration have mostly been fervent Clinton supporters who blame everyone but themselves for Donald Trump’s presidency.

Yet there are certainly some deplorable Trump supporters who unfortunately keep proving Hillary Clinton right.

I realize most Trump supporters are no more deplorable than most Clinton supporters—just misguided and misinformed, as most Clinton supporters are.

If you voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 Republican primaries, you probably find the behavior of Trump supporters like those in the above video quite embarrassing and shameful.

Yet if you voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 Republican primaries, have you contacted him to let him know what you expect of him?

If you voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 Republican primaries, and someone like me points out some area of Donald Trump’s presidency that needs improvement, do you consider what is pointed out—or do you just make excuses for President Trump?

Are you holding President Trump responsible for keeping his word to you?

If I’m not mistaken, Donald Trump assured all of us Americans that if he were elected president, he would put a stop to this outsourcing of American jobs by American corporations.

If I’m not mistaken, Donald Trump assured all of us Americans that if he were elected president, he would require that U.S. corporations pay the same import taxes as foreign corporations—and that would be the least he would do to bring American jobs back to America. 

President Trump has not done that—President Trump has done nothing to bring American jobs back to America but give U.S. corporate executive officers patriotic pep talks.

Why not contact President Trump, and ask him to put a stop to this outsourcing of American jobs, by American corporations, once and for all—as he promised he would do?

Donald Trump assured all of us Americans that if he were elected president, he would do things differently than mainstream Republican politicians—that he would reform the Republican Party.

He has not done that, he has done the opposite.

Instead of bringing our American troops home from fighting the unwinnable “Global War on Terrorism,” President Trump has doubled down on this unwinnable war that President George W. Bush started, and that President Barack Obama continued.

President Donald Trump has proven himself to be even more of an extreme-right, neocon Republican president than President George W. Bush or President George H.W. Bush was—to be even more focused on United States imperialism, and less focused on the United States itself, than his two Republican predecessors.

Not only has President Trump done nothing to make America “great” again—he has done nothing to make America “good” again.

In fact, he has done far more for the modern state of Israel than the United States of America—he has done far more for the modern state of Israel than any of his Democratic or Republican predecessors since Democrat Harry Truman.

Why not contact President Trump, and ask him to stop serving the modern state of Israel—and to start serving the United States of America instead?

If you voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 Republican primaries, at least in part because of what Neocon Republican Politician Nikki Haley started in the summer of 2015, did you know President-elect Trump nominated Nimrata Randhawa Haley for a position in his presidential cabinet, immediately after he was elected?

Did you know President Trump keeps Neocon Republican Politician Nimrata Randhawa Haley in his cabinet, to this day—and that this is a betrayal of your trust, on President Trump’s part?

If you didn’t know this, and you would like President Trump to remove Nimrata Randhawa Haley from his presidential cabinet, you can sign this online petition for him to do just that:

https://www.change.org/p/president-trump-remove-the-dishonorable-nikki-r-haley-from-your-cabinet-immediately-so-you-can-immediately-restore-honor-to-your-cabinet

If you voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 Republican primaries, you are accountable for holding President Trump accountable for keeping his word to you.

Just as no one resists Trump by doing nothing to officially remove him from office, no one assists Trump by doing nothing to hold him accountable for keeping his word.

If Donald Trump is your President, hold your President accountable. 

A DIFFERENT APPROACH

Subject: FROM SCOTT MAYO, RE TWO ONLINE PETITIONS I HAVE STARTED

I appreciate your time and consideration, in reading this email.

For a long time now, I’ve been very concerned about the direction our country, the United States, is taking.

Since 2012, I’ve been especially concerned about the destructive impact that unrestrained Digital-Age technology—particularly cellular technology (cellphones and smartphones) and social media (Facebook, Twitter, et al)—is having on our country.

And since June 22, 2015, I’ve been especially concerned about an ongoing trend of state and local politicians censoring their constituents’ historical flags, and destroying their constituents’ historical monuments—without their constituents’ consent.  This posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America—and I have been doing all I can to bring awareness to it, and to elicit the help of my fellow Southern Americans, my fellow Americans, and my fellow human beings worldwide, in stopping this destructive trend.

I have started two petitions on the website, Change.org, on which I would appreciate your adding your signature to mine.

The first is to President Trump, requesting that he remove Nikki Haley from his presidential cabinet—because Nikki Haley is the initial perpetrator of this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America, and because Nikki Haley is being rewarded for her exploitation of a mass murder.

The second is to Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward and the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners to return the First Confederate Flag to its rightful place in Pensacola’s Five-Flags Displays—the historical flags displays of the five nations under which Pensacola, Florida, has lived and thrived.  These local politicians have censored the First Confederate Flag from our historical flags displays since June 24, 2015—without our consent.  They have not even let us vote on this.

Our country, the United States of America, is in serious danger of self-destruction.  The sociopolitical chaos our country is experiencing in this Digital Age is unprecedented in its history.  And this sociopolitical chaos—driven by unrestrained Digital-Age technology—is spreading all over our world.

Most of us seem to be pretending that everything is fine—as if our country’s problems will simply go away if we ignore them.  But this is never the case—no country’s problems simply go away, as if by magic.

Many of us are quite aware of the danger posed to our country, but feel so powerless to do anything about it that we just give up—we just do nothing, and look forward to our deaths, or to a Biblical event that will require no action on our part.

Of course, neither of these approaches is ever effective.

We can turn our country—and our world—around.  But we can only do this together—and with small, incremental actions.

And signing online petitions is a way of taking small, incremental actions together.

Please click on the links below, and—unless either of these petitions is against everything you believe in—add your signature to these online petitions.  Your signature will be greatly appreciated—perhaps more than you know.

NO PROBLEM CAN BE SOLVED IF WE DON’T RECOGNIZE IT AS A PROBLEM

Much of this nation is in denial.

It is in denial that Donald Trump is its president.

You cannot solve a problem unless you know what the problem is.

You can deny that Donald Trump is your president, and such denial will do you no harm.

You can deny that Donald Trump is our president, and such denial will do you no harm.

But if you deny that Donald Trump is the current president of the United States—that Donald Trump is President of the United States, at this time—such denial will do you a great deal of harm.

If Hillary Clinton were President of the United States instead, I’d say she weren’t my president.

I might even say she weren’t our president.

But I would have to accept the fact that she were the current president of the United States—that she were President of the United States, at this time—in order to effectively fight for her impeachment and removal from office.

I didn’t vote for Donald Trump either—just as I didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton.

And though I disliked Donald Trump long before he was elected President of the United States, I did not hate him until he nominated the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley for a position in his presidential cabinet.  I’ve hated him ever since he did that—it  was a betrayal of the trust of untold millions of American voters, especially in the South.  And it continues to be a betrayal of the trust of untold millions of American voters, especially in the South.

Donald Trump is President of the United States, and this is a problem.

But Nikki Haley is a celebrated member of Donald Trump’s presidential cabinet, and this is far more of a problem.

I realize that this nation’s focus on President Donald Trump is distracting it from a far more dangerous politician—a far more clever, dishonest, and diabolically evil politician than Donald Trump could ever be.

And when this politician is inaugurated as the next president of the United States, and the first female president of the United States, I damned sure won’t deny that she is President of the United States.

Because that will be the problem—that the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley is President of the United States—and I will have to accept this fact in order to fight like hell for her impeachment and removal from office.

Hopefully, we won’t get to that point—hopefully enough other Americans will support me, and others, to effectively persuade President Trump to remove the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley from his cabinet.

But first, these other Americans will have to accept the fact that Donald Trump is President of the United States.

Because no problem can be solved if we don’t recognize it as a problem.  

SO FAR

President Ronald Reagan was no worse than President Jimmy Carter, President George H.W. Bush was no worse than President Ronald Reagan, President Bill Clinton was no worse than President George H.W. Bush, President George W. Bush was no worse than President Bill Clinton, President Barack Obama was no worse than President George W. Bush, and President Donald Trump is no worse—so far—than President Barack Obama.

President Ronald Reagan was no better than President Jimmy Carter, President George H.W. Bush was no better than President Ronald Reagan, President Bill Clinton was no better than President George H.W. Bush, President George W. Bush was no better than President Bill Clinton, President Barack Obama was no better than President George W. Bush, and President Donald Trump is no better—so far—than President Barack Obama.

And the last good president of the United States was Gerald Ford—because he just did his job, and did not abuse his power.

And the last good Democratic president of the United States was John F. Kennedy—because he was progressive, not liberal, and because he tempered his progressivism with conservatism.

The current President of the United States would do well to follow the examples of both Presidents Gerald Ford and John F. Kennedy.

“HIS 62,984,825 VOTERS,” AND THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO HOLD PRESIDENT TRUMP ACCOUNTABLE

What kind of war with North Korea?

“The U.S. Air Force ‘sniffer plane’ was collecting air samples off Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula on September 3, 1949, when it gathered evidence of radioactivity, confirming that the Soviet Union had tested a nuclear device.  The Soviets’ August 29, 1949, test had come faster than expected.

“The basic science of nuclear explosions is more than 72 years old.  Ballistic missile technology is more than 60 years old.  The problems of miniaturizing warheads for mounting on missiles, and of ensuring the warheads’ survival en route to targets, are not sufficient to stymie a nation—consider Pakistan, whose annual per capita income is less than $2,000—that is determined to have a nuclear arsenal.

“North Korea has one and is developing ICBMs faster than expected and with indifference to U.S. proclamations.  On January 2, President-elect Donald Trump tweeted about North Korea’s promised ICBM test: ‘It won’t happen!’  It did.  North Korea’s most audacious act, firing a missile over Japan, came seven days after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson praised North Korea’s ‘restraint.’

“Pyongyang wants a nuclear arsenal, and as The Economist magazine says, the world’s unpalatable options are the improbable (productive negotiations), the feeble (more sanctions) and the terrifying (military pre-emption).

“When Trump threatened North Korea with ‘fire and fury like the world has never seen,’ was he threatening to cross the nuclear weapons threshold?  Former General Douglas MacArthur handed President-elect Dwight Eisenhower a memorandum on how ‘to clear North Korea of enemy forces’: ‘This could be accomplished through the atomic bombing of enemy military concentrations and installations in North Korea and the sowing of fields of suitable radio-active materials, the by-product of atomic manufacture, to close major lines of enemy supply and communication. …’

“MacArthur badly misjudged Eisenhower, who later rejected two other recommendations that the bomb be used.

“Since then, the non-proliferation regime has been remarkably successful. President John F. Kennedy said that by 1975 there might be 20 nuclear powers. Now, however, North Korea, the ninth, might be joined by Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and others.

“On August 1, Senator Lindsey Graham said that Trump had told him that ‘there will be a war with North Korea’ if it continues to develop ICBMs capable of reaching the U.S.

“Are Congress’ constitutional powers regarding war so atrophied that it supinely hopes for mere post facto notification?  Ten months after November 8, that day’s costs, until now largely aesthetic, are suddenly, although not altogether unpredictably, more serious than were perhaps contemplated by his 62,984,825 voters.”

George Will, Washington Post

STOP RESISTING TRUMP—AND START FOLLOWING SENATOR SANDERS’ LEAD

So you don’t like President Trump?

If you would have voted for Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primaries, instead of Hillary Clinton, you’d have no reason to dislike Donald Trump—because Bernie Sanders would be President of the United States.

That said, Senator Bernie Sanders accepts the fact that Donald Trump won the presidential election of 2016—why won’t you?

And Senator Bernie Sanders is willing to work with President Trump on certain issues—and to hold him accountable for keeping his word to the American people—why aren’t you?

Senator Bernie Sanders is not wasting his time resisting the President of the United States, in the streets.  Instead, Senator Sanders is resisting the President of the United States, in the U.S. Senate, on some issues—yet working with the President of the United States, in the U.S. Senate, on others.

You failed miserably in voting against Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primaries—and you’re going to keep failing miserably if you don’t listen to Senator Sanders, and follow his example.  Stop pretending that Donald Trump is not President of the United States—and start working with President Trump on the issues on which you are in agreement with President Trump.

And as you do this, bear this one more fact in mind: There were only four senators in the United States Senate who voted against Nikki Haley’s confirmation for a presidential cabinet position.  Senator Bernie Sanders was one of these four.

This says a lot about Senator Bernie Sanders—and a lot about how you can make a positive contribution, in your attitude and behavior, rather than a negative one.

Stop resisting Trump—and start following Senator Sanders’ lead.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: WHO’S MOST RESPONSIBLE

NOT JUST TRUMP

“…You know, I’m automatically attracted to gullible–I just start manipulating them.  It’s like a magnet.  Just manipulate.  I don’t even wait.  And when you’re a politician, they let you do it.  You can do anything.”

“…Grab ’em by the balls.  You can do anything…”

Not Just Trump
