Default Donald Trump is Under Attack

I don't believe anyone can actually dispute the fact that Trump is under attack. What many don't seem to understand is that it's not the "Fake News" of Main Stream Media that's attacking Donald Trump. It's not the Democrats that are attacking Donald Trump. It's not even the Republicans that Trump has been lashing out and condemning that are attacking Donald Trump.

It's Donald Trump that's attacking Donald Trump.

Trump's behavior that's reflected the instability of a person with a narcissistic/paranoid personality disorder with the signs of the onset of dementia have been commented on recently in the press but the press has also noted that this may not be a clinically related but instead are merely Trump continuing the same behavior he used successfully as a businessman. As the head of his own private corporation Trump had no one to answer to but himself. He routinely attack those that annoyed him, condemned him, or that stood in the way of his success. He placed himself above all others because no one else mattered in his business world. He didn't have to depend upon the truth or facts in running his business although failing to do so did result in many Trump failures but Trump was generally able to make others pay for his mistakes.

Trump's behavior could be the result of serious mental disorders or it may just be reflective of how he conducted business where he wasn't held accountable by the public for his actions. Now he's the President, the most visable person in America, and everything he does or says is under the microscope. His lack of any knowledge about the government and issues has placed him in the spotlight in a way that he's never experienced. He doesn't know how to achieve his agenda because he doesn't know anything about government and his normal behavior as Trump the Businessman doesn't work as President. Unable to change a lifetime of how he conducts himself has left him confused and his diminishing support is causing him deep anxiety that's reflected in his behavior.

What we do know is what Senator Corker, a Trump ally (that Trump has now turned on) has bluntly stated. Trump has failed to demonstrate the stability or competence necessary for the President.

Clinical or habitual narcissism, paranoia, and dementia or just habitual behavior it really doesn't matter. Trump is unable to change his behavior and it's his behavior that's attacking him.

Trump's past, that he'd been able to hide from the public eye as a private businessman, is also coming back to attack him. The Russian investigation has been driving Trump to fits of rage because he knows what's probably going to be uncovered about his past. We have former FBI Director Comey's testimony that Trump wanted Comey to exhonorate Trump and start to shut down the Russian investigation. When Comey didn't Trump fired him. It's been reported that Trump has recently been going into a rage with Republicans in Congress because they "don't have his back" on the Russian investigation. He's afraid and is threatening Republicans like Sen Mitch McConnell in angry profanity laced phone calls because they're not using their influence to end the investigations. Two possible cases of attempted obstruction of justice where each of those provides collaboration for the other.

Add to that is the fact that the Steele dossier, that Trump and the White House tried to dismiss as unverified and unsupported hearsay and anti[Trump lies and propaganda, is turning out to be true. Our intelligence agencies have been able to verify much of the information that's contained in the dossier and none of the allegations have been disproven. The head of Fusion GPS, that was responsible for the research and a well known mainstream political research company, spent ten hours being questioned behind closed doors by the Senate investigation on Russian intervention in the election. Fusion GPS turned over 40,000 pages of supporting documentation to the government. Richard Steele, a career MI6 expert on Russia with impeccable credentials that conducted the investigation and was the author of the dossier, has meet with the FBI and provided the names of those that provided him with the information.

Fusion GPS is standing by the accuracy of the information in the "dossier" and has basically challenged the US intelligence community to investigate every single allegation to verify or debunk the allegations. As noted the FBI and other intelligence sources have actually been doing that for months and many of the claims have already been validated while none of the allegations have proven to be false.

This is of huge importance because the dossier claims that the Trump-Russia relationship goes back five years, that the Russians were carefully grooming Trump to work as a Russian agent within the US government, and that there had been significant collusion between the Russians and representatives of Trump to corrupt the 2016 Presidential election and that Russia was providing financial funding for the Trump campaign.

Not all of this has been verified yet but considering the record that everything in the dossier that the US intelligence agencies have been able to completely review has been verifies so far, and that the dossier was created by an acknowledged expert intelligence agent with an impeccable history when it comes to Russia, the odds are leaning towards all of the information in the dossier being accurate, very accurate. The US intelligence agencies now have 40,000 pages of documents backing up the dossier plus the names of the sources for the information.

The early denials of the contents in Steele's "dossier" on Donald Trump have crumbled with each verification that the statements in the dossier have been confirmed by our own intelligence agencies and the inability of our intelligence agencies to disprove any of the allegations. If even 50% are confirmed and none are debunked we can basically assume the dossier is accurate in all of it's details.

And that document is damning beyond belief. The very idea that Trump is basically a Russian plant in our government as the President is far beyond what any American can accept. It isn't just a small insignificant piece of information but borders on the criteria for Trump to be prosecuted for treason as a Russian agent and spy.

And Trump has been acting since Day One like this information is correct because he's been running scared since taking office and has been extremely active in trying to shut down the investigation. He fired Comey the head investigator into the Russian involvement in the election that was using the Steele dossier as a roadmap. Trump was outraged over Session's recusal that allowed the appointment of a Special Counsel that Sessions can't control and can't fire. Trump expanded his rage to include Republicans in Congress that haven't stopped the Congressional investigation into his involvement with the Russians.

Donald Trump has become completely unhinged over the Russian investigation and it's bubbled over into the public no longer just dependent upon "undisclosed sources inside of the White House" that were previously sharing this information.

Trump is under attack and its his own behavior and his history of involvement with the Russians that threatened to remove him from office in disgrace, possibly to face serious criminal charges, that's responsible for the attack. Trump and Trump supporters cannot blame the news media, they can't blame the Democrats, and they can't blame the Republicans for this attack because it's exclusively a result of what Trump is doing and what he's done in the past that is apparently far worse than any of us could have imagined.

My opinion based upon what we know so far and we're going to know a lot more in the very near future. Donald Trump maybe either forced to resign or impeached and removed from office before he finishes his first year in office. The odds of that happening are now even based upon the Las Vegas book makers.

A flat out lie. The Democrats have stated that the goal is to bring down President Trump at any cost. Their agendal just got trampled because they managed to field the worst candidate in decades.

Trump does tend to respond mouth first, which doesn't help. But no matter. There is no response including no response that would satisfy the liberals.

President Trump dissed a dead soldiers Mom. And 100's of other nearly as stupid things. He begs for sane people to attack him. It keeps his mindless die hard base emotional so they wont think. Seems to be working on about 35% of the population.

This it nonsense.

The Russia investigations in Congress are lead by Republicans.

It was Republican Senator Corker, a Trump supporter, that stated Trump had failed to demonstrate the stability and competence to be President.

Trump has failed in everything he's done from domestic policies to foreign affairs even with the Republican Party having majority control in Congress.

Donald Trump doesn't have a single significant legislative accomplishment. In fact he doesn't have any accomplishments except for creating chaos in the White House that's plagued with scandals of his own creation.

The man has no integrity, no knowledge, no manners, no class, and is unquestionably the worst president in my lifetime. Worse still he doesn't even show any interest in becoming a good president.

Sorry, the Democrats have actually been rather reserved and with good cause. They don't have to do anything to make Trump look bad. It's far better for them to sit back and just watch as Trump destroys himself.

Unfortunately if the Dems and his fellow Republicans stand by and let him make himself look bad, it is also bad for our country. If he destroys himself at this time, if might not destroy our country, but it could be very catastrophic, with fat boy in north korea and all.
