Smoke And Mirrors

One day the president says he will bring destruction and horror never seen before on the country of North Korea if Kim Jung Un does not back down with his threat to use ICBM weaponry to attack the United States and its interests in that unstable part of the world. We now listen to Trump say that Kim is an alright guy and he can be trusted to do whatever he can to appease America. Our traditional allies in Europe have been kicked to the curb by this president and his adoration of Vladimir Putin. What does the former head of the notorious Soviet KGB who has an arsenal of methods to trap the unwary into being puppets of their fears of being exposed in the way that is most embarrassing. Being caught with their pants down in a compromising situation.

This story is as old as the saga of Mati Hari who in the early 19th century was a female spy who used sex to get information from those in the know who fell prey to her charms in the boudoir.  They betrayed their countries for a brief moment of pleasure during a period of social upheaval that they had a reasonable fear of not surviving. The times we now live in are no different than those experienced before by previous generations. Only the date on the calendar changes. How things will play out in the coming months and years of the Trump administration is yet to be seen and understood by those who put him in the Oval Office and those who want him gone. Like yesterday. The president is human and will be judged on how he performs as the leader of the free world. That, in the long run, is all that really matters when you think about it rational manner. Something was done in the dark and will at some point come to the light of public scrutiny for the whole world to see.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
