Until Trump became our illegitimate president, and he added his circle of sinners to support his evil agenda, the evilest man in America was undoubtedly former vice-president, and George W. Bush’s puppeteer, Dick Cheney.
It was Cheney who convinced Bush and Colin Powell to lie about “weapons of mass destruction” in Iran. It was Cheney who decided to torture suspected terrorists in Guantanamo Bay and at other black sites around the world. It was Cheney who gave his former company, Halliburton, a no-bid contract in Iran, where they charged our military seven-dollars for a can of soda. The list goes on.
In theaters today is a “dramady” called “Vice.” It is the story of Cheney’s rise to power, and how he mastered lying and political manipulation.
Witnesses report that Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, went to the movies while partying at Mar-a-Lago. They chose to see “Vice.” However, they left about one-half way through the film with their now unpaid secret service agents in tow.
Can I assume that they were witnessing events depicted in the film which were similar to their own actions, and the actions of Trump and what remains of his circle of sinners? We know that Cheney and the Trump’s share several traits, including a lack of concern for the future of America, and a disdain for any man or woman in America who is not white, wealthy, and powerful. The majority of Americans are of no interest to these despicable individuals.
My fellow Americans, Republicans are the enemy. They serve the wealthy and powerful. Let’s plan now to end their lives of luxury and privilege on November 3, 2020 and vote them all out of office. This is our country, not theirs.
