We’re obsessed with now.
We’re so sure of our reports, that
this or that thing caused this, and
it all happened this week.
The shiny balls bounce, “Trump
is tweeting again,” but history knows
why he is.
What is a Trump “president of the
First, the States are not united,
all of them pulled together and
over the years have bullied
minorities, starting with the
American Indian, then of course
the African slave, then the
freed slaves, to name a few.
“United States of America” declares
itself so, historically, as a bastion of
hope and freedom for white males.
Next, we fought some wars, replaced
the sixth commandment with the
second amendment, made killing
We killed and killed some more, got
good at it, and prided ourselves in
winning wars, winning territory, often
overlooking original sins against black,
brown and other people—
the “country” had an official line,
ones drawn by…
So we fought World War I, jumped
into Europe, played hero and “won.”
Instead of being humble in victory,
and mourning all the dead on all
sides, we raised our hands and did the
flapper dance for the next decade—
most of it all over the German people,
who we made pay for starting that dang
We could have graciously helped them
to their feet and forgiven them, but
we drove the stake in hard—
enough to create Hitler and a backlash
good enough to start another war,
and the Jewish holocaust.
The United Nations formed after
World War II, and unlike the Kellogg-
Briand Pact of the 1920’s, this world
peace gig seemed like it could really
work until the American government
ratified its CIA, who along with other
nations kept waging covert wars
behind peace talks.
Shaking hands with the right, stealing
and killing with the left, hiding
documents and lying in the name
of “National Security.”
“Everybody’s doing it” was surely
put forth as they gathered on the
White House lawn in cloaks and
dagger outfits, a ruse of not-so-
funny don’ts and do’s in front
of Truman, Eisenhower then
Kennedy until they killed him
CIA kept its rule of the USA until…
the present day, but the leash is
very long, you might not notice them
unless you loved the Kennedy hope
of the ‘60’s, miss it, and miss truth.
JFK wasn’t perfect, but by ’63 had
grown into a man of peace, amends,
just a little naive on the power of
covert ops and the growing target
on his back.
“They wouldn’t do it, would they?”
They did it.
Cowards from behind a bush, covered
it up just as in Latin America they would.
A pattern attack, this time in our
own land, Julius Caesar by Brutus,
JFK by CIA, Howard Hunt and all those
ticked off Cubans killed or captured
or wounded when Kennedy balked
at helping take the Pigs’ Bay.
But did all that make Donald Trump?
Look at Cold War, from Kennedy’s murder
to Vietnam, the CIA’s baby, the path
clear with LBJ, then Nixon to execute
this impossible but profitable fight.
(At least our families are eating?) Wide
that path to destruction, and boom!
The “American army” blowing a darn
good path through Southeast Asia!!
But we “won” the Cold War!!!
The wall came down in 1989…
A good day. A great day?!?!
Make American Great Again? Reagan
says, “Yes, We Can!?”
Or was that Obama? Definitely this:
Clinton and the Americans rubbed the
victory in Russia’s nose, and like in
1930’s Germany, we had created
This one, named Putin, rose and rose,
and rose some more and again, until
he rose to a place that he could
get his sweet revenge.
Put Trump in the White House; put down
Hillary Clinton and the U.S. dance
with Global Authority, democracy and
another frickin’ flapper dance across
a fallen enemy!
History knows, even if the news does
not, why the news is crazy, sad or
It’s none of those things, but is a perfect
growth of history’s seed.
We planted everything that is reaped
on TV today.
Mothers and babies separated at the border,
the UN reprimanding the USA!
Puerto Rico shunned and neglected
by a racist regime in the USA!
Putin smiles, a short-lived win,
revenge is sweet, the games may
Politics and history lost in the eyes
of a child, God’s will charging on—
the aware forging a narrow path,
Wyatt Earps, Bob Muellers, Truth
and Comey with your morning coffee—
John Adams against the Hamilton
frenzy, Lao Tzu and Jesus himself
offering truth against all this hoopla
walking around the White House
dangling pardons and tax scams.
God is good, Trump is not, but seek
history before you judge him or
the present moment too harshly,
for history’s to blame and they are not.
