Poem: The Statue of Liberty Wept Today

A tear splashed down from Lady Liberties eyes

as Trump adviser Stephan Miller told outright lies

about immigration and what she stood for

claiming Lady Liberty was a political whore

The snake spun tall tales for the white house press

where they came from was anybody’s guess

Spin snake, spin, smiling slyly at his narration

Denying it’s a racist legislation

Coming from a White House limiting immigration

if you don’t speak English in Trump’s new nation

you aren’t going to get confirmation

to come to America.

 

 

What Is Trump’s October Surprise?

Liar-in-Chief, Donald Trump, is preparing for an October surprise.

No, it has nothing to do with elections that are normally associated with the dictum. And no, it doesn’t have anything to do with Halloween. Then what, you ask?

Trump plans to sabotage the nuclear deal with Iran.

The plot began two weeks ago when Trump was forced to sign and certify that Iran was in compliance  with its end of the deal after the International Atomic Energy Agency had confirmed Tehran’s fair play.

According to  Foreign Policy, Trump threw such a temper tantrum in the Oval Office it took the adults in the room—Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, and National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster—to eventually calm him down on the condition that they double down on finding a way for the him to blow up the deal by October.

In summary, Trump has been advised to use the spot-inspections mechanism of the nuclear deal to demand access to a whole set of military sites in Iran.

Once Iran balks—which it will since the mechanism is only supposed to be used if tangible evidence exists that those sites are being used for illicit nuclear activities—Trump can claim that Iran is in violation, blowing up the nuclear deal while shifting the blame to Tehran.

According to The New York Times, the groundwork for this strategy has already been laid.

Here’s the takeaway:

The administration is committed to finding a way to claim Iran has violated the accord, regardless of the facts—just as George W. Bush did with Iraq.

As It Stands, I can’t help wondering what the rest of the world thinks about Trump’s plan to go to war with Iran, because it’s obviously no secret.
