Caitlin,
“ my recent article about Trump being another Obama”
Another Obama? Are you suggesting the prior to taking up a career in politics Trump was an arse — prostitute as certain unsubstantiated allegations have maintained. That’s a conspiracy theory I will be exhuming as often as I like until Obama releases those various documents containing information on his past that he ordered sealed before starting his campaign.
Seriously, I agree that Trump is pursuing the same policies as Obama, for the simple reason that The Deep State gave neither any alternatives. Obama might once have believed he would deliver ‘Hope and Change’ and Trump probably thought he could ‘drain the swamp’ and ‘Make America Great Again.’
But realistically speaking it was never going to happen for either of them. The peacemaker and joybringer turned into the warmonger and bringer of chaos (to Libya, Iraq and Syria in particular — Afghanistan is always in chaos,) while Trump does not yet seem to have grasped that the swamp is bottomless, even as he sinks into it, while Russia, China and Iran continue their efforts to undermine the status of the US dollar as the global reserve currency. And as if The White House did not have enough problems in getting their heads round all that, the Deep State are pushing for another unwinnable war in Iran.

Opted for comfortable retirement before I was fifty due to health problems and burn out. Now spend my time writing and goofing around. Home: northern England..
