Unhinged

Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House by Omarosa Manigault Newman published in 2018. Omarosa knows Trump well and in this book she tells what she knows. The book is well written and I recommend it. With the drip, drip, drip of the release of her tapes, she is fighting back at Trump and others using his own methods. No elected Republican has the courage she has to stand up to Trump. If some of the other 16 GOP candidates had had the courage to stand up to Trump during the primaries, we might not have Trump in the White House.

Good luck

Just think how lucky we are that Donald Trump is happening now instead at the height of the cold war. If the election of Trump had happened before the defeat of the Soviet Union, we would have been in deep doo-doo. Now Russia is much less populous and struggling to get back on its imperialist feet. Russia is mostly dependent on its energy supplies to keep its economy afloat. That is why sanctions on its oil and gas suppliers hurt Russia so much and that is why Putin is so anxious to have those sanctions lifted.

Buying silence

Dictators try to silence their critics. It is their nature. First, they try to buy silence. If that doesn’t work, then they will try blackmail or some other sort of compulsion, such as cancelling a security clearance to make earning a living more difficult. If that doesn’t work, then critics are silenced permanently. Does the CIA still do assassinations?
