COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Aug. 9, 2016 – Fifty of the nation’s most senior Republican national security officials, many of them former top aides or cabinet members for President George W. Bush, have signed a letter declaring that Donald J. Trump “lacks the character, values and experience” to be president and “would put at risk our country’s national security and well-being.”
Translation: Fifty Rinos (Republicans in name only) have added to the growing evidence that the nation really is run by one big slap-happy party, also known as “the Establishment.”
Among the most prominent signatories are Michael V. Hayden, a former director of both the C.I.A. and the National Security Council; John D. Negroponte, who served as the first director of national intelligence and then deputy secretary of state; and Robert B. Zoellick, another former deputy secretary of state, United States trade representative and, until 2012, president of the World Bank.
Two former secretaries of homeland security, Tom Ridge and Michael Chertoff, also signed, as did Eric S. Edelman, who served as Vice President Dick Cheney’s national security adviser and as a top aide to Robert M. Gates when he was secretary of defense.
Robert Blackwill and James Jeffrey, two key strategists in Bush’s National Security Council, and William H. Taft IV, a former deputy secretary of defense and ambassador to NATO, also signed.
These men and these men alone possess the keys to the American kingdom. Should an impostor somehow manage to break through their hallowed ranks to reach national attention, as Donald Trump has, and as Bernie Sanders attempted to do, these “Ins” will close ranks to repel them.
If, following the sad collusion by the Democrat National Committee and Hillary insiders to dispatch Bernie Sanders, anyone still doubts that our national elections are rigged, today’s letter from these Rino ne’er-do-wells should serve to confirm their worst suspicions.
They are. Rigged. Absolutely.
Let’s parse exactly what these 50 insiders had to say:
Trump, the officials warn, “would be the most reckless president in American history.”
More reckless, one might ask, than a president who loads $400 million in hard currency onto wooden pallets and ships it under cover of darkness to a nation that is arguably one of America’s most dangerous enemies, so it might spend the cash quickly, easily and without detection by the international community?
The letter says Trump would “weaken the United States’ moral authority and questions his knowledge of and belief in the Constitution.”
Would weaken our moral authority and constitutional government more than a president who, at the outset of his first term, supported his attorney general, who stated that his justice department would not be prosecuting blacks?
Or, would weaken our constitutional government more than the 13 Supreme Court unanimous rulings that Obama has exceeded his constitutional authority?
Returning now to the ne’er-do-wells and Trump, “He is unable or unwilling to separate truth from falsehood,” the letter says.
Has President Obama apologized yet for his promise that under Obamacare, “You can keep your doctor”?
“(Trump) does not encourage conflicting views.”
Is Obama’s apology still in the mail for his oversight of the Internal Revenue Service’s harassment of those who have opposed him politically, including tea party members?
“He cannot tolerate criticism. He has alarmed our closest allies with his erratic behavior.”
Are the citizens of Israel sleeping better tonight knowing of Obama’s continued weak support of them?
The ne’er-do-wells’ letter seems to follow Mrs. Clinton’s main argument about her rival: that his temperament makes him unsuitable for the job and that he should not be entrusted with the control of nuclear weapons.
This, from the woman who recklessly discussed, in emails hosted on her private server, an Iranian nuclear scientist who was executed by Iran for treason, as reported by Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., on Sunday.
Speaking about Shahram Amiri, who gave information to the U.S. about Iran’s nuclear program, Cotton said on Face the Nation: “I’m not going to comment on what he may or may not have done for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary Clinton’s private server, there were conversations among her senior advisers about this gentleman.”
Cotton said this lapse proves she is not capable of keeping the country safe. “That goes to show just how reckless and careless her decision was to put that kind of highly classified information on a private server. And I think her judgement is not suited to keep this country safe.”
The scientist shows up in Clinton’s emails back in 2010, just nine days before he returned to Iran.
On Sunday Cotton also accused the Obama administration of “working like a gun cartel” by sending the $400 million to Iran in what many regard as ransom for hostages.
The globalism shills and their politically correct failure to face the facts about what made America great are truly fearful now of a businessman who seems to value the constitution and the American workers above all else.
With irony and smugness on the rise by those “in the know,” the advent of sincerity and love of country can be threatening.
But there is one silver lining to this cloud filled with chattering magpies: The more they speak and the more Americans listen, the closer the republic comes to understanding what has been wrong with our country these past many years.
America, not unlike some stuffy monarchy that’s too inbred, has been eating its own gruel for far too long now.
A window must be opened. Freshness must prevail.
Donald Trump? Dangerous?
Not nearly as much as those for whom ruling means the world.
