Let Me Paint An Image Into My Thoughts About This President: Hear My Voice

Voices, voices, voices, we do need them to keep talking. We need them not to go numb to this insanity in which we are all a part of every single day in America now. Even so, I do get tired. It would be so easy to say that I am not going to speak my opinion about these issues anymore; the main issue being a most unethical president, which, let’s face it, is the biggest problem we have.

People, or I should say his supporters would like us all to shrug him off and say he is the best president we have had. NO, that is not ever going to happen. My voice has become strained from an exhaustion of this everyday grind of ridiculousness this man puts us through. Nevertheless, I cannot foresee any of us giving our words no relevance in the fight to blow some wind at the fog in some minds in order to clear the naivety they have for this president’s immoral beliefs and behaviors. If we stopped our own mission to bring back an established and intelligent government and leader, then we will become no better off than the people who lived through the holocaust years. This president has every bit the personality traits and mindsets of the worse dictators we have ever known; Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini, to name a recognized few.

In using my thoughts (voice) to write this, I suspect they will be met by some very boastful voices that will disagree with me to the utmost of their greedy beliefs. I don’t mean to judge, but it is no doubt a truthful statement when someone can honestly listen and watch this President and his administration day, after day, after day, continue to lie their way out of factual truths. And we do not need any paper evidence for the truth; Trump, in his unethical and illogical way gives us that proof every day in the way he screams his retaliation to the events in question. He gives us that when he fires, at the drop of a hat, the persons whom he feels are threatening to expose his truths. It has been his own voice that has brought forth the reality of facts.

Being Observant Instead of Conforming to Divisive Agendas

It is all about observation people! It is the ability to listen and watch to the extent that will give you the facts, and the real personality of an individual who may have question marks surrounding them. I have obtained the ability from an early age, being as I was a very shy person through most of my life. Even so, I can be truthful when I say that it is sometimes hard to read another. However, be honest with yourselves; Trump is extremely easy to know. He is transparent to a fault - most egomaniacs are!

Does This Picture Say Anything? Observe...

One Man Sits With Confidence and Truth and The Other Screams With Lies: Dignity and Disdain

We are now in the midst of this president reigning fire and fury – as he would probably call it – on a man who would have, in his own words, succumbed to the numbness of this president’s every day mental rhetoric if he had not told his story, and if he had not kept his voice in the conversation. I am talking about former FBI director James Comey.

By now, we have all seen interviews with Mr. Comey, or some may have even read his new book, “A Higher Loyalty; Truth, Lies, and Leadership.” In his book, which I admit, I haven’t read yet, but by my observation of listening to the interviews with Comey, have realized that he has based it on moral leadership. I believe he talks about not only Trump’s disgraceful ability to lead with a positive image, but he holds no higher bar for himself by talking about his own mistakes. In this way, we should respect Mr. Comey for his ability to bury his ego to do so; something the president has yet to learn how to do for himself.

Therefore, as Mr. Comey is tattered with Trump and his supporters continuously calling him a leaker and using every outlet to face-off with him and to push blame in his direction for his own firing, it is with total sincerity for his true cause that I be one of many that will come to his defense in the absurdity of their actions toward him. Not once has Mr. Comey been inconsistent with his story, even though all the journalists who have interviewed him have come with tough questions in such a way that if he was going to trip up, he would have by now. No, I may not have agreed with him when he came out right before the 2016 election and brought up more emails of Hillary Clinton's, and that, in turn, caused her to lose the election, but I do believe him when he said that it was not intentional.


A Very Telling Interview and The Only Republican on The Panel Trying to Downgrade Comey's Relevance; FAILED.

Could You Uphold the Duties of the FBI

Let’s think about the duties of an FBI agent, any lawful position, for that matter. You need to be, by your own fault, an honest person. You need to have the ability to be bipartisan with any political party or politician. It is a position that we hold high standards to. People have criticized Mr. Comey for not voting, and I simply think that is crazy! Why would we want someone in his position to vote? It is absolute distaste to his authority if he had.

Furthermore, when it comes to the Trump war with Comey; I am confused by the whole thing. My take on the situation is that Donald Trump is a total disgrace as a leader. He is a liar and is filled with many nasty secrets. That is why he is attacking anyone and everyone who comes close to finding out his truth. Otherwise, if everyone thought that Comey was the reason Hillary Clinton didn’t win, then wouldn’t it have elated a person like Trump and made him think that Comey was one of his loyalists? Yeah, but see, he did like Comey until he had to make sure of Comey’s loyalty and realized that it did not lie in the president (Trump), it lay with his department and doing his job in an honest way for the people. Do you all not see this?

Finally, when it comes to the Russian collusion investigation, he has commented that he may know a few more facts, and that it may be “possible” Mr. Trump has had wrongful interactions with the Russians. That is not worded in the way he said it, but basically it is what he has said. I believe him! I also like the way James Comey writes in his book about what this Trump presidency has made happen, and guess what, it's a positive take away! In regards to the Parkland students standing up for gun control, and the Me too movement, it makes a lot of sense.

I liken President Trump in my book to a 'forest fire.' It's going to do tremendous damage, but a forest fire gives healthy things room to grow that had no chance before that fire.

— James Comey

Moving on to the Most Recent Events as of This Morning

Today, I was on Twitter after waking up around 4am to news on CNN that North Korea and South Korea have come to an agreement on peaceful negotiations. This would end 65 years of a Korean war between the two. It is a hopeful outcome, especially if the President of North Korea denuclearizes the Korean Peninsula. My initial thought was curiosity of what Trump had to say, so I went to his Twitter page. He had tweeted 4 minutes before I went there, and I was presently surprised when I started reading, and his first words were, “Is everybody believing what is going on?” I thought; he is actually going to talk about the great news from Korea. However, no, James Comey’s name was next, and you just realize that his obsession with trying to convince the American people that Comey is a leaker and a liar in order to clear his own guilty behavior, is more important than the hopeful news in Korea.

Do you get it yet? Is there any kind of understanding with you out there who have put this man on a pedestal of doing great things, that any positive policy that has happened, which, frankly, I have not seen, is just a fluke? He is not the cause of change. He only cares about changing his own personal path. Let me repeat… HE ONLY CARES ABOUT HIMSELF! And by the way, Republican Senate, please stop acting like he needs the prize for these positive happenings in Korea. He had nothing to do with it. He shouted out a few threats, and believe me, that is not going to scare a person like Kim Jong Un. He kills his own family – get it? If anyone changed his mind, or has made him look to this peaceful plan, it was the South Korean President. Moon Jae-In took a chance and invited his neighbor to join in on one of the most important events we have with other countries; The Olympics! If you are an observant, you could see how proud and special that was to him and all the North Korean people.

A Hopeful Meeting; Kim Jong Un and Moon Jai-in

I Surprised Myself This Year

Finally, I want to make an honest confession. This admittance is one that I would only recently reveal about myself, because quite frankly, I would have never considered it before a year ago. I have been pushed to make decisions in which I would have never made if this president did not reside in the White House today. The reality of how the world has changed now, has made me examine who I am in a political aspect. I can’t even believe I’m saying that I am in any way a political person. I would have never paid much attention before this last election. I wasn’t registered to vote. I was not placed with a party, or did I have a desire to be. I was quite happy being oblivious to the goings on in Washington. I never worried before. I knew that even if I didn’t agree with the current president and his administration, that things would still be fine. Intelligence behind closed doors made me confident of that. However, times have changed.

My confession is; I have finally at the age of 46-years-old become a part of a political agenda. My political purpose is to get Trump and his flunkies out of the White House. Yes, I am one voice. I am one vote. Even so, I plan to use my voice, and I plan to vote in every single election. I am confessing I have registered under the Democratic party. I will also say I am probably as far left as you can get according to the far right. I believe in fairness to the people. Equality to all! I believe the rich should pay more in taxes, so the poor get fed. I am indeed a LIBERAL! I think that makes me 100% a human being in my opinion.

Democrats tend to take a more liberal stand on important issues. They believe that the federal government should take a more active role in people's lives, particularly those who are in need.

Are the Fists Still High?

      Hello, whomever may have read this opinion essay, and maybe even the comments; especially the ones with bradmaster. I wanted to come here and just write what I am feeling right now after two days of watching all this ridiculousness from Trump and his administration.

      So, now, we have had Rudy Giuliani making his rounds on television and completely putting Trump back in the liars box by absolutely saying the very opposite of what the president has said on the Stormy Daniels case and why he fired Comey. smh...Then, he totally shows that Comey had a point when he said Trump reminded him of a mob boss, because Giuliani just sounded like his go to killer by saying that Trump's son-in-law is disposable! Yeah, who but the mob would say someone is disposable??

      So, even though I am not like bradmaster, and make this political aggravation my life focus to talk, write, or debate about; I will admit that it has taken too much of my attention in these past couple of weeks. I realize now how crazy it is even to care about debate at this point.

      Trump is burying himself. Besides, I'm like Comey, who does not want him to be impeached - me neither. If he got impeached, for god's sake, we would have Pence in the seat while Mother makes all the decisions. lol... No, it would be best that he stays put, and in November, we get all the Democrats replacing all these crazy Republicans, whom have decided to turn their head to this president's mental condition. Then, Trump will not be able to do NOTHING!!! At least, nothing we don't want him to, right?

      Finally, I'm saying I should just watch and wait. This type of thing is not worth my time and thought anymore. This president will bury himself, and all the others around him will fall over like dominoes with him. They continue to do so anyway, don't they? lol...

      I appreciate everyone who has read this though. :) Thank you!

      How bout that Rudy Giuliani? Boy, I don't know how the opposing legal team are going to fight the case he's laid out? LOL... or help with the special counsel's questions for that matter. Wow!! So sad isn't it? Not...

      You're hilarious, Brad. You don't mind if I call you Brad, right? lol...You act like spitting my comments back at me somehow makes them irrelevant. I accept they are irrelevant to the sick die-hard supporters of Trump's, so I pay that no mind. However, I just can't help but wonder, or can grasp that there still is this type of crazy outlook that exists after Trump, and his administrations extreme unethical behavior. He is an obvious liar - pathological! Don't worry, like I said in my first comment, I pay no mind to your tirades. I feel sorry for you. But, as a human being; I will be courteous to what you feel is truth and respect your opinion about this nightmare we are living through. And that is that. No more comments are necessary from you, Brad. I thank you for your time in reading my hub. :)

      -----------------

      You are exactly the one I thought of when I wrote of the ones who would probably "boast" their disagreement, bradmaster.

      B:

      Boast! is that the way you address my detailed comment on your article.

      ?

      ----------------------------------------

      Obviously, I don't know you personally, but being here on HP as long as I have, I have caught your extreme loud voice as a supporter of Trump. It seems this type of thing is what consumes your world.

      B:

      Another, attack "Loud Voice"

      Trump consumes the world, and he should because he is the president of our country and our lives are his responsibility.

      The country elected him president, and it would be nice if everyone at least tried to help him.

      -------------------------------------

      Most of us, who may have an opinion on this president, and his complete unethical and bullying way of leadership, only occasionally take the time to voice our thoughts on it.

      B:

      Have you checked the forums?

      -----------------------------------------

      Frankly, if I did this on a constant basis as you do, it would drive me insane! Mind you, I'm not making any accusations (giggle/joke).

      B:

      So far you have addressed my comments, have you.

      ----------------------------------

      Again, I think most of us who lend our voices to this conversation, have other things we write and talk about here as well. This type of conversation is not a lifestyle for me, but is, on occasion, important to talk about.

      B:

      Then why did you write this article.

      Why haven't you addressed my specific comments.

      -------------------------------------------

      Now, in saying all this, I expect and can handle the debate of disagreements. I actually just had one on Twitter with another person who defends this president's immoral character and behavior.

      B:

      So far here, you just talk, and not about my comments.

      Debate, that takes two, and so far I am the only one with an opinion on the topic. Your topic? I didn't write it,you did.

      You make a non factual statement about the president Trump's immoral character and behavior.

      Without any facts and examples, that is just gas.from an Anti Trumper!

      -----------------------------------------------

      We both left the discussion still not agreeing on a lot of things; however, we did cordially agree to disagree. And that, bradmaster, is what I look for

      B:

      Agree to disagree is a waste of time. You end up where you started.

      ---------------------------------

      . That is what I think will be helpful as we live through Trump's time in the WH. We need to find a way to be cordial and agree to disagree in a better way. You, by my "observance" do not have that ability to do so. No offense!

      B:

      I am cordial, but I expect an exchange of ideas. That doesn't mean that I have to accept them. That would take a compelling argument. Argument in the sense of making the case.

      ----------------------------------------

      Finally, I would like to say that I did take the time to read your complete comment, because I have never not read anyone's finished thought here, but I regret to admit I only got through less than half of your rant before I started rolling my eyes and shaking my head. I had to stop.

      B:

      Is that your debating technique?

      I took the time to comment on your article, not my article. And your reply doesn't address a single comment I made.

      Is it too much to ask the author of an article to discuss and even argue their points? I do it, when I write my articles. That is why I write my articles, for an exchange of ideas. Basically, I don't understand nor can I think like the other side. So, I ask questions, and make arguments.

      If there were compelling argument, it could possibly give me the view that I have been missing.

      But here, you have neither made a view or and argument to support your side.

      You have however made it clear that without knowing me, you want to attack and make this personal. On that you did a good job.

      :)

      My purpose in writing these opinion essays, are to have a conversation that may lead to a better understanding of the persons who like this president. And I have found that some whom I have had a conversation with are not bad people, but are truly desperate for a change. Granted, I think supporting this president's agenda is the wrong way to go about the change they seek, and deep-down inside; I can feel some of them know that I'm right on that, but desperation for whatever reason a person has it, may make us see things with blinders on. My words and voice are used for a hopeful awakening of these good people, and if not, a better way we can debate and still get through our disagreements in a forgiving way.

      I could not read your full comment, bradmaster. I tried. However, you do not have the type of personal outlook I have within a debate. A debate I like would be compared with the one I had on Twitter today. We both had strong opinions, but respected each other's reasons for those opinions, even if at the end we still did not agree. My purpose is to, hopefully, change minds, yes, but if not, I want to leave a conversation with some kind of respect for the other. I'm just not sure I could ever respect your way of debate. I apologize.

      We need them not to go numb to this insanity in which we are all a part of every single day in America now.

      B:

      What insanity?

      --------------------

      Trump, in his unethical and illogical way gives us that proof every day in the way he screams his retaliation to the events in question. He gives us that when he fires, at the drop of a hat, the persons whom he feels are threatening to expose his truths. It has been his own voice that has brought forth the reality of facts.

      B:

      What unethical and illogical? What proof?

      He should have but didn't fire Sessions, Mueller, Rosenstein,

      Andrew McCabe was fired by Rosenstein.

      Comey was a mistake of Trump, Comey should have never been included in the Trump administration for cause.

      Mueller and three congressional investigations of more than a year failed to find anything they could use against Trump.

      Trump is the president and these people work at his discretion, and even Comey said that when he was fired by Trump.

      Most of the people that President Trump fired were working against him and the country.

      --------------------------------------

      my observation of listening to the interviews with Comey, have realized that he has based it on moral leadership.

      B:

      Moral leadership, based on what?

      He wrote the exoneration for Hillary Clinton two months before he exonerated her.

      The gross negligence found by Peter Stzrok was changed to Extremely Negligent to avoid the statutes wording of gross negligence. Hillary Clinton was never put under oath, her interview was not recorded.

      He didn't do his job? He worked against the President showing him the Russian Report without telling him it came from HRC and the DNC. He also misrepresented this report to the FISA court to get a spy warrant.

      -------------------------------------------

      I believe he talks about not only Trump’s disgraceful ability to lead with a positive image, but he holds no higher bar for himself by talking about his own mistakes. In this way, we should respect Mr. Comey for his ability to bury his ego to do so; something the president has yet to learn how to do for himself.

      B:

      He his classified memos when he was no longer FBI director. And the friend he leaked it to was still working for the FBI. There was nothing in those memos that was bad for the president.

      Comey will be the subject of a criminal investigation for these and more criminals acts.

      ----------------------------------

      It is all about observation people! It is the ability to listen and watch to the extent that will give you the facts, and the real personality of an individual who may have question marks surrounding them. I have obtained the ability from an early age, being as I was a very shy person through most of my life. Even so, I can be truthful when I say that it is sometimes hard to read another.

      B:

      What is the basis of these fact finding personal observations? What are you observing?

      -----------------------------------------------------------

      However, be honest with yourselves; Trump is extremely easy to know. He is transparent to a fault - most egomaniacs are

      B:

      We have never had a president that has been transparent. And that is a good thing. Since Trump entered the election campaign till today, and most likely the future, the Main Stream "News" Media has faulted every thing he does and even everything he says.

      So Twitter is the modern technology replacing the newspaper, the radio, and television. It also allows Trump to say what he wants and not have it filtered by the media.

      And so far, your article is noting more than an emotional rant. Like using the word egomaniacs to describe the president of the US. What words would you use for Obama, and Clinton?

      ----------------------------------------

      think about the duties of an FBI agent, any lawful position, for that matter. You need to be, by your own fault, an honest person. You need to have the ability to be bipartisan with any political party or politician. It is a position that we hold high standards to. People have criticized Mr. Comey for not voting, and I simply think that is crazy! Why would we want someone in his position to vote? It is absolute distaste to his authority if he had.

      B:

      You really think that Comey is honest, and that he did his job.

      Look back at my comment on his handling of the HRC investigation?

      --------------------------------------------

      Furthermore, when it comes to the Trump war with Comey; I am confused by the whole thing. My take on the situation is that Donald Trump is a total disgrace as a leader.

      B:

      What has Trump done that he is a disgrace as a leader?

      He has accomplished more in his 16 months than Obama did in 8 years.

      ----------------------------------

      He is a liar and is filled with many nasty secrets.

      B:

      What is your proof of lies made by Trump?

      With multiple investigations on Donald Trump for the past two years, why haven't these nasty secrets been found?

      ---------------------------------------------------

      That is why he is attacking anyone and everyone who comes close to finding out his truth.

      b:

      Truth about what. The House Intelligence Agency just concluded and their report clear him period. And that is because there was nothing to be found.

      ---------------------------------------------------

      Otherwise, if everyone thought that Comey was the reason Hillary Clinton didn’t win, then wouldn’t it have elated a person like Trump and made him think that Comey was one of his loyalists? Yeah, but see, he did like Comey until he had to make sure of Comey’s loyalty and realized that it did not lie in the president (Trump), it lay with his department and doing his job in an honest way for the people. Do you all not see this?

      B:

      Where are the facts that go along with that series of emotional rants. Comey was loyal to HRC because he didn't put her in jail. No president in the US has yet won the presidency from behind bars.

      It appears, that you are the one that doesn't see.

      ----------------------------------------------

      Finally, when it comes to the Russian collusion investigation, he has commented that he may know a few more facts, and that it may be “possible” Mr. Trump has had wrongful interactions with the Russians. That is not worded in the way he said it, but basically it is what he has said. I believe him! I also like the way James Comey writes in his book about what this Trump presidency has made happen, and guess what, it's a positive take away! In regards to the Parkland students standing up for gun control, and the Me too movement, it makes a lot of sense.

      B:

      These words don't have any facts to adhere to here.

      Gun control is your Parkland Issue.

      What about the failure of the FBI to follow credible information on Cruz.

      What about the failure of the Sheriff department that had dismissed several criminal actions against Cruz, and what about 4 of his deputies that didn't confront Cruz while he was shooting students. How many of them could have been saved by the deputies.

      -----------------------------------

      B:

      I have written many articles on these subjects so I won't repeat them here.

      So far I have found your article as the work of a total and emotional Anti Trumper.

      There was ample evidence to indict and convict HRC and the DNC but the people that you say have been wrongly attacked by president Trump were the ones that not only exonerated a criminal, were also the ones colluding with Russia.

      ? What government agency investigated the allegedly hacked DNC email servers?

      ? Tell us again where that damming evidence that Comey had against the president? It certainly wasn't in his memos on Trump?

      I agree with your argument here, Frank. We all did vote him in. I feel that even if you weren’t one who voted - like me, that was a vote for him as well. The fact is, I don’t think any of us seriously thought someone like him would win this election, He was Donald Trump for heaven’s sake! He had always been a selfish, egotistical, bastard, right? This is why, after reflecting on my own naive mistake, that I forgive Comey for his blunder. He said himself that he honestly thought Clinton would win - no doubt! I don’t think he felt bringing up more emails would’ve swayed that vote.

      We all must live with some peoples stupidity of believing in him which got him votes, and some of our own naivety of not voting at all, because we were confident he wouldn’t win, which sadly ended up helping him to victory. Comey now knows that as well. He wants to help now, and use his voice to share what he knows with Americans. I believe him when he says this is his goal to help. I don’t want to just shrug this insanity off either, because I do feel that most of us do not want this man in a position he doesn’t deserve and is not ethically qualified for.

      I appreciate your feedback on this subject, Frank. It’s been over a year now, and we are still living this nightmare. I, like MizB, hope Mueller will be able to find us a way out before 2020. If not, I will definitely try to keep using my voice to wake people who still support this president,,and then; I will also be the first in line at the voting booths.

      Sorry if I messed this comment up. I’m typing it out on my phone, as it is 3 in the early morning, and I just happened to be up because my dog needed to go out. I am not at my computer. Thanks again my friend! I love you despite your Republican affiliation. lol

      I read this and read it again... And truth be told I think we're all responsible for placing this person in the white house. It's funny because the choices we had were bad and worse, and we've elected the worse. I've never seen a person so arrogant.. a person who lies... and a person who just doesn't get it... yet we elected him.. when I say we, I do mean the electoral college.... In practice, all state legislatures use popular voting to choose a slate of electors who are pledged to vote for a particular party's candidate. Thus, today the president and vice president are effectively chosen through indirect election by the citizens. And to think Trump wanted to do away with the electoral college.. in this case I would have agreed.. maybe the popular vote would have had a bigger say in which poison to pick.. I have always been a Republican... and this was the first time I voted outside my box....I think I could go on..but I'm try to stay away from that..... ")

      I totally get why most still have a bone to pick with Comey, MizB. I do as well to an extent, but I can look over that after listening to him talk, more than I can ever accept this president along with his sickening personality and values. Comey has, at least, explained his thinking during that time, and he certainly sticks to his story. I can find no hiccups that make me feel like he is lying.

      As far as Trump, he has lasted longer than I expected, and I can't fathom why? He is the equivalent of the devil, but he doesn't even disguise it. Trump is a pathological liar, and it amazes me how many people still bow to his crazy antics.

      There was a time when I don't think we would be so divided even if we were on an opposite political spectrum. However, it's becoming dangerous out here. I think that is why most people have just started to shrug off his crazy. I feel I have done the same at times, but I have always continued to ask myself if that is the right thing to do. Actually, I think listening to Comey, and watching how brave the Parkland students have been in retaliation, has made me realize that it is not a good thing just to shut up.

      I do hope with all my might that Mueller will give us our out one day. We live in total misery with Trump. He is a disgusting human being. I've never really hated anyone, but I believe I hate him. I don't even care if it is wrong anymore. See how he is affecting attitudes? Good people, that would usually stay out of politics, have now accepted that they have been tarnished by this reality. It's truly depressing at times. Maybe I'm overreacting, but somehow I don't think so. It's very troublesome.

      Thanks for reading and commenting, MizB. I always love to read your feedback. Take care! :)

      Missy, I have to agree with you on Trump, but I think I draw the line at Comey's mistimed release of information concerning Hillary's emails when he, by his own admittance recently, had damning evidence on Trump that he could have released at the same time. It is possible that it might have balanced out the damage to Hillary. I didn't accept his mealy mouth attempt at explaining why he released the damage to Hillary. Perhaps it didn't damage Hillary. We don't know how badly the damage to our electoral process was from Russian hacking. I just hope Muller gets to the bottom of it soon before mid-terms come up. We may have to go back to the old manual voter machines or handwritten ballots. I have to admit Trump's lasted longer than I thought he would. Darn it.
