Making America Great Again, One Conviction at a Time

August 21, 2018, will go down in the history of the USA as the beginning of the slow but sure end of Donald Trump. A day when his former campaign manager Pual Manafort was convicted on eight counts (five counts of tax fraud, two counts of bank fraud and one count of failure to disclose a foreign bank account,) which together carry a long prison sentence.  As if that was not enough of a bad news for Mr. Trump, his personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to tax evasion, bank fraud and campaign finance violations. In doing so, he revealed that he had made hush payments to a porn star and a former Playboy Playmate on instructions of Donald Trump, a clear violation of campaign laws. Special Counsel Robert Mueller III who has worked diligently and silently in spite of repeated and willful insults and provocation by Donald Trump deserves the gratitude of American people. Fact that he has secured five guilty pleas, 32 indicted individuals, 187 charges revealing evidence of Russia’s 2016 attack on our democracy, puts to rest Mr. Trump’s constant refrain of a witch hunt.

From today, the army of liars and crooks like Rudy Guliani, Chris Christie, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, the Fox News, and Donald Trump himself will go to town spinning this bad news, explaining how this doesn’t affect Trump. Spineless leaders like Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan will utter the same nonsense as before and in essence declare their full support to “our” President.  40% of the voters, mostly Christian rights, Evangelists, gun-toting rednecks and White supremacist racists will rile against the justice system since they have been on ‘Trump can do no wrong’ dope for too long. Even many Hindu NRIs will still support him, mainly because, he is anti-Muslim.

Yet the fact remains that Mr. Trump is on a downward slide from where there is no turning back. I have lived through Nixon and Watergate times and Nixon who had won the second term and seemed invincible was fell by his own hubris. Mark my words- Trump’s end will be the same, though he will not leave without being dragged kicking and screaming.  America is in for a rough patch ahead but at least, the constitution is still intact and the judiciary is independent.   Stay tuned.

Trumpy at the Bat

From ten thousand Fake News hamlets there rose a lusty yell;
it rumbled through the valley, it rattled in the dell;
it knocked upon the mountain and recoiled upon the flat,
for Trumpy, mighty Trumpy, was advancing to the bat.Ten million angry eyes were on him as he rubbed his hands in slogans;
five million tongues applauded when he shouted ‘repeal Obamacare’.
Then while the pitcher ground the ball into his hip,
defiance gleamed in Trumpy’s eye, a sneer curled Trumpy’s lip.And now the Obamacare ball came hurtling through the air,
and Trumpy stood watching it in his detail-free universe.
As the sturdy batsman stood still in stupidity.
“That ain’t my style,” said Trumpy. “Strike one,” the umpire said.With a smile of fake Christian charity Trumpy’s pumpkined visage shone;
he signaled to the pitcher, and once more Obamacare sailed;
but Trumpy still ignored it, and the umpire said: “Strike two.”

“Repeal Obamacare!” cried the maddened misanthropes,
As the sneer faded from Trumpy’s lips, his teeth now clenched in hate;
he pounds his empty head upon the plate.
And now the pitcher holds the ball and he lets it go,
and now the air is shattered by the force of Trumpy’s trumpery.

Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
the sick are tended, and healthcare rights are safe again,
and somewhere an average American can see a doctor again.
American humanity is restored again,
but there is no joy in Trumpville — for mighty Trumpy has struck out.
