Dangerous Donald in a Rage

                                 Portrait of A Madman with Nukes

With each passing day we are witnessing the full extend of Trump’s madness – which 70,000 Psychaitrist and psychologists have been telling us about in their statement:”Duty to Warn.” Symptoms of the “Malignant Narcissism” and “Paranoia” the doctors diagnosed in the personality of Daffy Donald is everywhere on display! As the myriad dirty deeds Devious Donald did in the dark come to light, we see the extent of the danger he represents to our country. Over the week end for instance, Donnie Dimwit, the twittering Twit, tweeted 75 times! One does not have to be a trained head doctor to see that this is the graffiti of a very dangerous mad man!

It is worth getting a Twitter account in order to follow the growing madness of this man who has possession of the US nuclear codes. In case you don’t understand what this means, all you really need to know is: There is nothing to restrain the Mango Mussolini from launching a nuclear war which would destroy the world but the refusal of the head of Strategic Command to refuse to act on his his orders. Since such a refusal would subject the Commander to a charge of Treason, we cannot count on a trained military automaton to refuse Trump’s command: This is the shocking state of the human condition as I write!
One of the things that has intrigued me for decades is that the average citizen does not want to know how easily our planet can be destroyed by nuclear weapons. Yet it is an indisputable truth that every city and town in the US can be reduced to piles of highly radio-active rubble a half hour from the time you are reading this essay. The most common response that I get from people when I tell them this dreadful fact is that since there is nothing they can do about it…. they would rather NOT THINK ABOUT IT!!!

I have always found this conspiracy of silence curious given the survival of our species is at stake; although I confess it is a difficult truth to live with. But I had no choice in the matter. Having been stationed on a nuclear strike base in the Strategic Air Command at the height of the Cold War, when I was a teenage college dropout, the full knowledge of these terrible weapons was thrust upon me. I went from practicing “atomic bomb drills” in 1959, to being perched in the center of America’s nuclear strike force in 1960!

I had a TOP SECRET security clearance, which meant that I was privy to discussions about US Nuclear War Plans, which was the nuclear destruction of Soviet Russia.” I thought the end of the world was at hand during the “Cuban Missile Crisis,” when the US and Russia almost destroyed the world in a conflict over the little Caribbean island nation of Cuba! It made a lasting impression on me, and I have followed the development and deployment of nuclear weapons ever since.

That’s why I understand that things, on an average day, are more dangerous now. There are far more missiles and they are now on line! And there are A MILLION AND A HALF ATTEMPTS A DAY TO HACK INTO OUR COMMAND AND CONTROL COMPUTERS! Hence a Commander, if ordered by the President to fire a nuclear weapon may feel that there is no time to adequately check, and double check, to see if our nation is actually under attack.

Yet until we rise up and demand that OUR GOVERNMENT lead the world in a nuclear disarmament effort. It is altogether fitting and proper that this historic role should fall upon Americans, since the US government introduced nuclear weapons into the weaponry of the world, has the biggest arsenal, AND REMAINS THE ONLY NATION TO USE THEM IN WAR!

The reason that I am thinking about nuclear weapons just now is because the man in charge of this DOOMSDAY ARSENAL is becoming visibly UNHINGED!!! My fears are compounded by the fact that Trump’s illness “Malignant Narcissism and Paranoia” first enters the psychiatric literature when the distinguished German Psychoanalyst, Eric Fromm, developed a psychiatric profile of ADOLPH HITLER, under a contract from the American government during World War II. Dr. James McIntosh, one of the psychiatrist who signed the “DUTY TO WARN” statement, has written a comparative analysis of the psychology of Hitler and Dirty Donald for “Commentaries On The Times.” It is compelling…and frightening!

As a supreme egotist Trump, like Hitler, conflates the nation with himself. In this view, only what’s good for Dirty Donnie is good for the nation. As I write I am listening to Lawrence Tribe, Professor of Constitutional Law at Harvard, who tutored both President Obama and Chief Justice Roberts about the Constitution, expressing deep anxiety and fear about what Trump is capable of when he is impeached!

Tribe points out that Trump is already practically calling for a Civil War to halt the impeachment process. He notes that Trump’s ego is such he may well be willing to try and bring the nation down with him! This is what troubles me most, because when Hitler came to realized that he was losing the war, and therefore his power, he wanted to destroy the German people, who he felt was unworthy of a GREAT LEADER such as he!

That’s why Hitler refused to surrender and save Germany from total destruction even after he realized that the war was lost! Who knows WTF Dangerous Delude Donald Will do! WHAT WE SHOULD DO IS ANOTHER MATTER! THE FIRST THING YOU SHOULD DO IS CALL YOUR CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION – HOUSE AND SENATE – AND DEMAND THAT THEY PASS THE LIEU-MARKEY BILL! THIS WOULD RESTRAIN THE PRESIDENT FROM ORDERING A NUCLEAR STRIKE WITHOUT CONSULTING CONGRESS!!!!!!! NOW HOP TO IT…YOU LIFE AND THE LIFE OF OUR PLANET IS AT STAKE!!!
