If you love Fox News you are going to love the new America. For with the appointment of hardliner John Bolton as national security advisor under Dear Leader Trump, the bullets will fly and the bombs will fall. Stupid wars will come fast and furious. What’s next, Sean Hannity for Secretary of Defense? Indeed, the replacement of H. R. McMaster with Bolton (an American Tajo type) the Trump administration has replaced a moderating force with a shit-stirring, ultra hardliner.

And I’m sure Trump is just getting started on his rampage to turn the United States of America into the Third Reich of the 21st century, with all the misery for humanity that that entails. As I wrote months ago, we are witnessing a deadly race as to whether or not reasonable forces will succeed in extracting the cancer that is Trump from our government before he destroys American — and the world as well — with his maniacal insanity.

Talking to you Republicans. If ever there was a time to put country before party, we are there. Another year of this Russian operative trampling over our national ideals and security interests and it will be too late to stop this train wreck of a president who is hell-bent on dictatorship and devastation.
