The Lincoln-Trump Leadership Nexus

This Seriousness Just In...

Life tends to keep one busy. According to Dale Carnegie, in his book, How To Stop Worrying and Start Living, that’s a good thing. Show me a busy man, to paraphrase Carnegie, and I’ll show you someone who’s happy. I was watching the news lately (cable, online, etc.) and noticed several Left Wing nutjobs (note that I’m an Indie Conservative), including one of America’s greatest Goober Globalists (i.e. a big fat failure like Hillary Clinton Crooked Hillary, HC2H, the perfect formula for corruption) John Kerry (former Secretary of State, and failed presidential candidate in 2004 - remember JibJab’s, “This Land is Your Land?”), complaining about President Donald J. Trump’s stance with NATO . . . We will no longer be the “piggy bank that everyone is robbing.” The cries from the Left Wing Loony Bin (Mind you, the Right has its own special asylum!) got me thinkin’...


Being a historian by trade, I cannot help but think in terms of historical developments, In other words, how do current events reflect past events. Some time ago, yes, even before Dinesh D’Souza announced his latest movie premier, Death of a Nation, which depicts Donald Trump’s leadership style as a reflection, albeit to a large but not complete degree, of Abraham Lincoln’s (Lincoln never jokingly discussed grabbing a woman by a body part. On the other hand, he might have been gay.), I pondered that same thought: "Abraham Lincoln and Donald J. Trump: A Brief Comparison" (Vox Populi - We Dare, August 8, 2017). I can’t wait till Michael Moore’s docuslop to be released...NOT!


Consider former whatever - and I do mean former, John Kerry’s recent Twitter comments. Now, to me, Twitter has become a social urinal for many crazies who pick up their electronic Sharpies, and write right into the inside, excrement covered porcelain bowl of the Internet (Don’t get me started on Facebook!).


First off, what did President Trump say? In preparation for his trip, he commented that NATO nations need to pay their fair share towards the expensive and costly upkeep of the NATO alliance, founded in 1949 as a military alliance against the USSR and its satellites. Later, in the presence of the NATO leaders, Trump then added a harsh but poignant comment, about Germany:


"Germany is a captive of Russia . . . It certainly doesn't seem to make sense that they paid billions of dollars to Russia and we have to defend them against Russia."


I mean, is Trump off whack, here? Clearly not. This is why he’s effective as a non-politician. Trump speaks the truth not “Orwellian doublespeak.” Not sure what I’m talking about? 
WARNING! YOU MAY NEED TO HOLD A BOX OF TISSUE CLOSE TO YOUR BOSOM. Here is Goober Globalist (I was born rich and want to keep it that way!) former whatever John Kerry’s partial Tweet:
The president set America back this morning. He is steadily destroying our reputation in the world. He is undermining our interests [i.e. riches for him and his ilk, the Democratic Socialist Nazi Party of America - slavery for you and me]. He diminishes alliances we built to safeguard an economic and strategic force that has allowed millions of people to live in freedom.”
I find it very interesting that he holds President Trump accountable for something already carried out by past presidents, particularly Barack Obama’s and George Bush II’s. Well, Kerry is part and parcel of that Goober Globalist crowd, including George Soros and the Koch Brothers.
NOW TO MY POINT IN ALL OF THIS CRAZINESS…
In 1862, President Lincoln was faced with a significant crisis, not too unlike President Trump’s problem with NATO. You see, during our Civil War, England (now Great Britain, or the U.K.) was aiding the South through the building of blockade runners to carry contraband through the Union naval blockade into southern ports under rebellion. The problem was that Queen Victoria had in fact declared England neutral, thus recognising the South, de fact, as an equal legally to the United States (“the North”) - under international law. Tensions were high. Let’s face it: the British were scoundrels, and pissed the North off. And then came the Trent Affair (November 8, 1861).
The HMS Trent, a British vessel, carried Southern (or Confederate, if you will) envoys seeking peace (Read: military alliance against the North) with British and other European nations. It was stopped (in the Bahamas of all places, minus the pina coladas) and the envoys and papers and effects seized by the USS San Jacinto as the lead American vessel. The British Captain Moir, expectedly, was outraged. Thus, the “Trent Affair” became front page news and almost led to war with England, and probably France. Note that both latter nations were like vultures, waiting to feed off of the carcass of a dying American Republic. This is not hyperbole, just fact.
Americans in the North were outraged, War fever was high. The British felt likewise. It did not look  good. Yet, in spite of many key leaders on both sides of the political aisle, Democrats and Republicans, pushing for war, and under enormous pressure to do so, Lincoln stated contrariwise:
“I fear the traitors will prove to be white elephants. We must stick to American principles concerning the rights of neutrals. We fought Great Britain for insisting . . . on the right to do precisely what Captain Wilkes has done. If Great Britain shall now protest against the act, and demand their release, we must give them up, apologize for the act as a violation of our doctrines, and thus forever bind her over to keep the peace in relation to neutrals, and so acknowledge that she has been wrong for sixty years.”
ABRAHAM LINCOLN WAS THE VOICE OF REASON
Though conventional wisdom at that time pushed for war with England, Lincoln, the realist and pragmatist, stood his ground. He did not lecture. President Lincoln, a true Republican, spoke clearly and proficiently. Interestingly, when French leader, Napoleon III invaded Mexico in late 1861, some twelve months before the Trent Affair, Lincoln told a frustrated and anxious Secretary of State William Seward, seeking an immediate military solution, “One war at a time.”
DONALD J. TRUMP IS THE VOICE OF REASON
Though “conventional wisdom” (Not sure if this is even possible in the era of Fakestream Media and truly crazy politicians like John McCain and Maxine Waters - thus the quotation marks.) today pushes for “equity” in trade relations with the rest of the world (i.e. give our partners all advantages that will help them), Trump, the realist and pragmatist, stands his ground on this (and other "conventional wisdom" - Fake Stream Media issues - dealing with illegal immigration, abortion, and health care, and normal relations with Vladimir Putin and Russia, historically one of our most reliable allies). He does not lecture. President Trump, a true Republican, speaks clearly and proficiently.
Unless you’re an Angry Liberal Voter (It seems their numbers are shrinking with the Walk Away Movement - which the Fakestream Media will not even contemplate, let alone cover), Willing Welfare Lifer (someone who's on the dole and could care less about the hardworking taxpayers), 1%er, or just plain stupid, don’t be fooled by the Democratic Socialist Nazi Party of America (DSNPA), or their presidential selection, Barack Obama. The globalists are running scared and they’ve sicked their call girls, the Fake Stream Media Outlets, after President Trump and his administration. Yeah, well, Donald J. Trump is no angel but his worst traits are saintly compared to the DSNPA’s best. If you don’t take that to the bank, the DSNPA will take you to the cleaners - and along for a Chicago-style “one way ride.”

“Let's Help SPEC Mueller!” (A Childlike, Left Wing Fantasy - PARTIE UN)

This Sarcasm Just In...

Let's Help SPEC Mueller!(A Childlike, Left Wing Fantasy - PARTIE UN)
By Bathhouse John for Vox Populi | November 5, 2017 at 12 PM (“High Noon”)


Apologies. I’ve been about as productive as our Congress, lately. This silly stage play is based upon the classic children’s show Barney and Friends, Season 1, Episode 15, "Let's Help Mother Goose!"


SPEC (Special Counsel) MUELLER as Himself


CHUCK Schumer as Himself


TED “Boo Hoo” Lieu as Himself


JEFF (Snow)Flake as Himself


HILLARY Clinton Crooked Hillary (HC2H - the perfect formula for corruption) as Herself


HARVEY Weinstein as Himself

MAXINE Waters as Herself (In a special guest starring role if we can find her head)



As JEFF, TED and HILLARY leave a liberal classroom, the former two daintily holding empty hot cocoa mugs and crinkled tissues, and the latter clutching (Kung Fu grip-like) an attache case stuffed with Russian Rubles....


JEFF
Yeah, I’m droppin’ out.


TED
Ooh, really? Move to my home, the Golden Fleece State of California.


HILLARY
(Angry, mutters to herself)
Donna Brazile, my a**-


HARVEY suddenly enters, holding a pool stick, hand in pocket.


HILLARY
(Elated)
Hi, Harvey!


TED
Hello, my most friendly friend!


JEFF
(Ponders, speaks softly)
I’m all in already! (Excitedly waves) Hey, Harvey!


SUDDENLY...as HILLARY’S ears wiggle back and forth, the SOUND of corruption and bribery viz-a-viz dollar bills (and Rubles) being shuffled can be heard. Other than HILLARY, HARVEY, and JEFF, all are startled by the sounds of bribery.


TED
Stop right there! Do you hear what I hear?


The others look around, acting all innocent, like the Nazis did then, and the Democratic Socialist Nazi Party of America does now.


HARVEY/JEFF/HILLARY
(Guilty as sin)
No. Not at all.


JEFF
(Brief moment of conscience)
It does sound a little like corruption.


HILLARY
(Trained response)
But there’s no one corrupt here!


The sounds of corruption and bribery viz-a-viz dollar bills (and Rubles) being shuffled gets even louder.


HARVEY
(Plays dumb, then an afterthought)
Well, let’s see if we can uncover the malfeasance. (Grabs smartphone, texts) “Hey, Kevin. It’s me. Talk on you later!”


TED/JEFF
(Set down empty hot cocoa mugs and crinkled tissues)
Let’s see here, er, uh-


HILLARY
(Sets down attache case - NOT!)
Yeah, let’s.


The four move across the classroom toward the corrupt sound.


HARVEY
Maybe it’s Jimmy Carter?


JEFF
Hell, no...Praise God!


TED
He’s a peanut farmer!


HILLARY
(As she sucks down some phlegm)
Maybe it’s Bill?


SUDDENLY…


SPEC MUELLER
(Invisible, behind the scenes)
Help! Help!


As the four look around pretending to be startled…


SPEC MUELLER
(Invisible, behind the scenes)
Harvey! Ted! Jeff! Hillary! Over here - near the ATM machine.


HARVEY
Did you hear that? (Winks) A crooked liberal needs help!


JEFF
(Looks around, really is stupid)
But who?


CUE THE MAGICAL MUSIC as CHUCK Schumer suddenly appears.


CHUCK
Hi, there!


ALL
(Look surprised due to the magic of playwright, hug)
Chuck!


CHUCK
Hello, homies! I’m New York tickled to see all of my corrupt friends again, but did I hear you say another crooked liberal is in trouble?


SPEC MUELLER
(Invisible, behind the scenes)
Help! Oh, uh, CH-U-CK! Over here! Near the ATM machine!


CHUCK
(Pretends to be surprised)
But who could it be? And where could they be?


JEFF
They?


TED
They who?


HARVEY
They who who?


HILLARY
(Frustrated cuz this gig is pro bono)
All of you - Shut the f*ck up!


SPEC MUELLER
(Invisible, behind the scenes)
Over here!


The dingalings move toward the sounds of corruption and bribery.


CHUCK
The sound seems to be coming right . . . about . . . here! (Gently pats ATM machine)


SPEC MUELLER
(Invisible, behind the scenes, laughs)
Well, it’s about time, my ilk. I thought you’d never put two and two three dollar bills together. Whew!


CHUCK
(Pretends to be confused)
Huh? (Pretends to be excited) It’s my very good friend, SPEC Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian Collusion - perhaps even involving President Trump. All roads lead to Moscow!


HILLARY
(Eyes shift rapidly, swallows hard)
Oh, sh*t!


TED
(Enamored - like Kevin Spacey toward a young boy)
Spec Mueller. Being that you're Deep State, how do you know Chuck?




SPEC MUELLER
(Invisible, behind the scenes, ponders)
You're from the Golden Fleece State aren't you, Ted? (Mutters) Dumb ass. NOW! I need your souls to aid in the protection of the evil globalist plan to destroy America. Do you all hear the now mere faint sound of corruption and bribery coming from inside my ATM machine?


ALL
Yes, yes we do!


SPEC MUELLER
(Invisible, behind the scenes)
Well, I’m fearful that the Fakestream Media is no longer able to cover up the plot - especially since, pardon me - no pun intended - it’s hard to articulate . . . Donald J. Trump won the presidency! Independent Media Outlets, like the dastardly playwright of this rhetorical ditty herein, are exposing the dark, dank slimy secrets to the hardworking taxpaying patriotic public. You know, those Americans who actually care about our country . . . not the globalists - or you fools!


HILLARY
(Oscar performance-like)
Independent Media Outlets? (Fumbles nervously) Do they like to tell the truth?


CHUCK
(Laughs nervously)
Uh, huh. The Fakestream Media, you know, CNN, Ms. NBC, the Disney Channel - they lie and are our friends. They’re G-O-O-D! But the Independent Media...Breitbart, Drudge, Circa, Vox Populi - We Dare, and the like...They’re B-A-D!


HILLARY
Oh, no!


SPEC MUELLER
(Invisible, behind the scenes)
Oh, yes! They’re exposin’, but worse - they’re crimpin’ our corrupt cash flow. Trump’s the cause - he must go! Chuck...would you be so greedy as to check inside my ATM machine and tabulate the concentration of green. Unzip the panel carefully.


CHUCK
(As he unzips the panel carefully)
Sure, SPEC MUELLER, no-


ALL
(Gasp)
Oh!


CHUCK
It’s empty, SPEC Mueller. The corruption and bribes are now all dried up. This ATM machine is no more effective than the de facto defunct CGI, or a criminal investigation pursued by criminals. (Dimwitted) Come to think of it....


TED
(Crestfallen)
The Independent Media has had a negative effect on the evil plot to destroy America.


HILLARY
(Tearful)
There’s but little bribery, slush funds and enormous Russian “speaking fees” left in the kitty of corruption.


CHUCK
(Reality check)
There goes the liberal neighborhood… No more ability to control DNC’s candidates, the sweet flowing sound of unmitigated cash infusions from George Soros, (Scared, to himself really, as voice rises steadily) and loss of the total control of New York City’s liberal mob viz-a-viz a welfarized economy!


SPEC MUELLER
(Uplifting, like Hitler after Stalingrad)
Now, now, don’t be sad. We can realign the Left’s axis of evil, and maybe even get Trump impeached, but it will take a lot of imagination and a phony full court press by our Fakestream Media pals. Chuck, will you please zip up my ATM panel carefully. It’s beginning to feel a bit drafty down here.


CHUCK
(Zips up panel carefully)
Naturally! (To himself) “Bout all I’m really good at. (Struggles unusually so) Let me see. (Delighted) There you are, Spec Mueller!


SPEC MUELLER
(Determined, like the evil spirit in The Amityville Horror)
Now, let’s have all of us left wingers - yes, even you Jeff - use our albeit crazy, but definitely inventive and overactive imaginations . . . and get me the f*ck out of this now depressingly empty ATM machine!


TED
(Overjoyed, thinking...)
That’s our favorite game!


CHUCK, HARVEY, TED, JEFF, and HILLARY are ecstatic at the corrupt possibilities and swing and sway as the music cues for the Left Wing children’s song, “SPEC Mueller” (Starts at 3:50)...


ALL
SPEC Mueller, SPEC Mueller
Your breath brings fear
We’d be a tad bit happier
If conservatives you commandeer
We’ve heard your many crimes
From Breitbart, Drudge, Vox Populi
If you could quickly appear
It’d create a nice political smear


SPEC Mueller, SPEC Mueller
We’ve heard your many crimes
From Breitbart, Drudge, Vox Populi
SPEC Mueller, SPEC Mueller
If you could quickly appear
It’d create a nice political smear


SPEC Mueller, SPEC Mueller
Your breath brings fear
We’d be a tad bit happier
If conservatives you commandeer
We’ve heard your many crimes
From Breitbart, Drudge, Vox Populi
If you could quickly appear
It’d create a nice political smear


SPEC Mueller, SPEC Mueller
We’ve heard your many crimes
From Breitbart, Drudge, Vox Populi
SPEC Mueller, SPEC Mueller
If you could quickly appear
It’d create a nice political smear


Like an appointment for a special counsel to investigate “Russian collusion” in the 2016 Election whose authority, depth, and scope then spreads like a herpes virus amongst Bill Clinton’s partners, SPEC MUELLER “magically” appears. ALL are excited and thankful for this most special "demonicratic" hero...


SPEC MUELLER
(Laughs, dizzy)
Oh, ho, ho!


CHUCK
(Elated beyond compare)
Hi, there, SPEC Mueller!


SPEC MUELLER
(Hugs, kisses CHUCK - in a weird Hitlerian kind of way)
Hi, there, Chuck! (Winks) Good to see you again. (To the “children”) Thank you for using your imaginations. (To JEFF) Believe me, Jeff, that’s the best thing to use when things go wrong!


JEFF
(Flabbergasted, like “Oh, sh*t!”)
How did you know my name?


SPEC MUELLER
(Flabbergasted, like “Are you really that stupid?”)
Why, I know all of your names, ranks-


CHUCK
Huh?


SPEC MUELLER
Serial numbers-


HILLARY
(Clutches attache of Rubles tighter, looks off camera)
Oh?


SPEC MUELLER
Sex partners-


HARVEY
On advice of counsel....


SPEC MUELLER
Locations of tattoos-


TED
(Eyes crotch area)
WTF!


SPEC MUELLER
Et cetera! (Points as he states the names of the liberal dimwits) Jeff, Chuck, Hillary, Harvey, and Ted. I know EVERY politico or otherwise who has ever stepped inside The Swamp here in D.C. I’m former FBI; it’s kinda my job to know all crimes. Oh, I have loved working crimes for a long, long time.


CHUCK, HARVEY, TED, JEFF, and HILLARY are unsure where this convo is going as the music cues for the Left Wing children’s song, “I’m SPEC Mueller” (Starts at 5:50)...


SPEC MUELLER
Oh, I’m SPEC Mueller and I’m here to state,
That I like to talk categorical crime,
I’ve been ‘round here for many, many ticks,
Like a f*cking very, very long trick,
I’ve been ‘round here for many, many ticks,
Like a f*cking very, very long trick!


Now, what is a crime you ask?
What is a crime per se?
Criminal activity will sure make smack,
Like collusion and bribery and launderin’ cash,
Like Uranium One diddle, and real pussy fiddle,
I like to converse about crime!


Oh, I’m SPEC Mueller and I’m here to state,
That I like to talk categorical crime,
I’ve been ‘round here for many, many ticks,
Like a f*cking very, very long trick,
I’ve been ‘round here for many, many ticks,
Like a f*cking very, very long trick!


Now, some of these crimes are quite funny,
And some drip, drip with sleazy slime,
And others consist of “harmless” animals,
Like the bear - as in Russian mammal,
I like to converse about crime!


Oh, I’m SPEC Mueller and I’m here to state,
That I like to talk categorical crime,
I’ve been ‘round here for many, many ticks,
Like a f*cking very, very long trick,
I’ve been ‘round here for many, many ticks,
(Does a little dance, then curtsies)
Like a f*cking very, very long trick!


ALL
That was great, SPEC Mueller.


CHUCK
(Giggles, claps)
D.C.’s always fun when you’re around SPEC Mueller!


SPEC MUELLER
(Snidely, pats CHUCK on head)
Naturally. There’s little difference between lawyers and liars, now, is there.


Like wild hyenas, ALL LAUGH uproariously with SPEC MUELLER.


TED
(Approaches SPEC MUELLER fawningly)
Have you been friends with Chuck a long time?


SPEC MUELLER
(As he “high fives” Chuck)
Oh, my goodness, f*cking a! (Spots ATM machine, somber) Oh, sh*tstorm, what a big problem. (Leans over to CHUCK, whispers) I might need to borrow some cash later.


CHUCK
Sure, sure. (Motions to HILLARY) But she's the loaded one.


SPEC MUELLER
To quickly reiterate the plotline of this silly stage play . . . Remember the evil globalist plan to destroy America? I’m fearful that the Fakestream Media is no longer able to cover up the plot - especially since, pardon me - no pun intended - it’s hard to articulate . . . Donald J. Trump won the presidency!  Independent Media Outlets, like the dastardly playwright of this rhetorical ditty herein, are exposing the dark, dank slimy secrets to the hardworking taxpaying patriotic public. (Suddenly really sad, like when witnessing Old Yeller die the first time)


HILLARY
(Giddy, big smile)
You need to find a way to keep President Trump off-balance; prevent him from carrying out his agenda. I know: Why don’t you just prosecute other, non-essential crimes?


SPEC MUELLER
(Suddenly really happy, like when witnessing Quint getting devoured by the shark for the fifth time)
YES! I could make my investigation suddenly valid - like new. A Phoenix rising from the ashes! (Suddenly really sad, like when witnessing President-elect Donald J. Trump’s election night speech.) But I don’t think I can uncover all of the crimes, misdemeanors, felonies, alleged, definite, sort of, maybe, mere cranial concepts, and what-not, going back many, many ticks, like a f*cking very, very long trick.


HILLARY
(Approaches, clutching attache case even tighter, excited)
I know . . . (Motions to all) WE can help you remember all of those crimes. Right everybody?


ALL
Darn tootin’!


CHUCK
We sure can, can’t we?


ALL
(Eye CHUCK)
Huh?


SPEC MUELLER
Oh, could you all? That’s just especially wonderful!
