Obama and Trump Smoke Peace Pipe in The White House! A Smooth Transition of Power.
While young students get paid to protest or riot in major American cities: Chicago, NYC, San Francisco [Oakland]- Obama has graciously invited President elect, Donald Trump, to the WH. This invitation and picture of the two men speaking positively about each other should remind all Americans, young and old, that this republic has had close to three hundred years of a peaceful transition of power from one POTUS to another.
Why is that important?
The world has been more shaken than those American citizens who voted for HRC. Mexico, China, Japan, South Korea and other major countries are wondering what they should make of this big-talking presidential candidate,Trump. Do foreign powers fear him to be a Genghis Kahn who will destroy all laws, bills and trade agreements which have already been signed?
I cannot answer that question on his behalf.
Yet, as I pick up cues from the Trump/Obama reconciliation, I would suspect that temperance and judicious consideration would be paramount in Trump’s assessment of present conditions. The candidate’s vociferous rhetoric becomes subordinate to any present legal, fiscal, or administrative constraints.The reality of ruling this republic immediately transforms into a dialectical compromise between wishful thinking and present-day, practical considerations.That does not mean that Trump will have to concede major elements of his formally stated agenda. However, it does impose a check on unrealistic or bombastic declarations that might have been instrumental in having Trump elected. Remember above all: Trump is very smart, has an incredible work ethic and he loves America. (All of America, not just parts).
Will he deport 11 million illegal immigrants?
It’s too costly and burdensome. However, he may initiate a show trial of deportation to make the point that ‘illegal’ does not mean ‘legal’. In addition, he will let border patrol do its job and NOT tie their hands as they have been in the past.
Did Trump discuss the ‘the birther issue’ with Obama? I doubt it. By now, Trump would have learned what most of us in the IC already knew about Obama. He was born to an American woman who earned a Doctorate of Anthropology in the USA. She also spoke several foreign languages which helped her become a very effective “CIA covert operative” in Indonesia during the 1960’s [Suharto regime change]. One can now understand that the secrets of the past are passed onto the novitiate president elect.
I implore those of you who are disgusted with the outcome of this election: fear not! Yet please continue to be vigilant for any major transgressions which may adversely affect you.
Remember Isaiah 52:7:
“Watchman, what of the night?”
