“I know more than the generals,” bragged presidential candidate and Vietnam-era draft dodger Donald Trump. Now years into his presidency, Trump has used up and thrown away several top generals. Who needs facts or expertise when you’re the smartest guy around?

Now our self-proclaimed “stable genius” is facing an impeachment trial, so how to change the subject? Simple. Assassinate the top general of a dangerous rival nation, and move impeachment to the back burner. But the questions for the nation and the world remain. “What next? What more could go wrong?”

Iraq has now told American troops to go home. That is a victory that Iran and ISIS could not have accomplished without our brilliant president’s help. Trump long ago destroyed relations with most of our allies. Now he is threatening Iraq with crippling sanctions, and Iran with bombing of “cultural sites,” which the entire world recognizes as a war crime.

Trump, who campaigned on “ending endless wars,” has America poised on the brink of the most dangerous war of modern times. The lives of millions, in America and around the world, might depend on stopping this reckless egomaniac’s lawlessness, either by impeachment, or by a vote of the people.

Meantime, Mr. Thune, Mr. Rounds and Mr. Johnson, isn’t it at long last time to put the future of our democracy ahead of your political future?

Jerry: The way you are squawking I need to ask you, Is the sky falling?

Mr. DLJohnson, I see from these pages you were what we call a диванный воин (sofa warrior). But this is your chance to help me in a real fight - the fight to make Russian Great Again. Keep up the good work, Comrade.

People have been out to destroy President Trump since before the last election. Has he done some things that are not the best, yes. Has he done things that other presidents were affraid to do,yes. I dont think the opposing political party thought he would win, but guess what, he did and they have been whining and complaing since. Were would teens and 20 somethings get expeiance in selecting a person compitant to run a country as great as ours? From the corupt media and life long politicans who want controle us and line there pockets. They cried around and rioted chanting "not my predident,not my choice". This is the type of culture we are building by babying young and old people, dont hurt my feelings, you cant dissaplin my kid, i get what I want at any cost and the list goes on and on. This country needs to stop being the handout capital of the world and god forbid we would ever "medal in an other country political affairs or elections". Hopefuly people remember who needs to go on election day.

Mr. Ar223, your uninformed comments make me laugh. You whine that “This country needs to stop being the handout capital of the world” but South Dakota gets more federal money than it pays in federal taxes. Don’t you know SD is truly a Welfare State? This is especially true under Trump, who buys the votes of our farmers with Billions of dollars to make up for his foolish Trade War. And guess which tax payers make our irresponsible lifestyle possible? Those hated Coastal Elites! They pay more in Federal taxes than they receive. Meanwhile, the astronomical deficits to be handed to our grandchildren climb. But you are right about one thing - this will only be decided at the ballot box. Either in November or four years hence.

DLJohnson

Clowns: So how long have you been a surrogate for the Russians? Why aren't you running the show is you are so darn good? That's right, you are just reading script given to you by your handlers.

About South Dakota being a welfare state, I guess you should know. Too bad you weren't around when they handed out common sense and functioning brains.

ClownsRus

Oh, goody! More amusement. Sergeant DLJ Pogue is starting off a new round of his insulting, but non-responsive, issue-dodging comments. Let’s see how many he posts this time. He got almost up to 50 on the that last round following his lame opinion letter, “The Real Obstruction”

sdtwinsfan_63

Mr. Wilson since you seem to know more than the opposite party throw your hat in the Ring and run for a position. You seem to forget your liberal motto my or our way since that is what you taught at MMC. It's always the opposing party fault and the Liberals get a free pass on just about every crime imaginal. So throw your hat in the Arena and let your voice be heard.

★ This sounds like a private beef, Mr. sdtwinsfan_63. Why not ask me Mr. Wilson out for a beer and tell him what you think. If it’s past that, then can you please tell the rest of us what the heck this is all about? ★

sdtwinsfan_63

Well next time we meet I will, and we'll discuss the issue.

No private beef just you were a professional college instructor in English!

Why in world would you talk to college freshman like in the post you wrote above. But that's the norm know.

Never guessed you were jolly roger I thought it was that false liberal prophecy.

Show trial in the Senate. No C-Span cameras allowed, only Senate cameras. Welcome to State TV. Dump and the Rethuglican Party are a huge threat to Democracy. If you care about and want to save the Republic vote Democrat in 2020. Otherwise, kiss it goodbye.

DLJohnson

You are so jealous!

antiteaparty

You are so treasonous!

DLJohnson

antiteaparty: Treason is on your hands. You are the one going after the elected government.

antiteaparty

Are you wearing your "I'd rather be a Russian than a Democrat" t-shirt while writing that, traitor?

DLJohnson

antiteaparty: He/She/It that squawks the loudest is the most guilty. You might want to quit pointing the finger at yourself. The Hammer and Sickle banner hanging over your head identifies your true colors. The T-shirt actually says I would rather be anything other than the "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse": A Communist, A Socialist, A Liberal or A Democrat.

antiteaparty

Hey Benedict Arnold, it is your candidate who begs foreign governments to influence our elections. Treasonous!

DLJohnson

antiteaparty: We all know that you are treasonous. You don't have to keep announcing it. (Boomerang).

antiteaparty

Can't win elections without help from foreign governments! Russia, if you're listening, I hope you find the emails! Ukraine, open up a sham investigation into my top opponent! Poor Dump realizes he can't win fairly so he sells out our great country! Traitor!

★ Dear sdtwinsfan_63: WTF!? Instead of explaining what this private feud is all about, you seem to be assuming I am your adversary - your despised Mr. Wison. Is that it? And you bring up a new non sequitur. Something about a false “liberal prophecy”? Could you please try again after you get back on your meds for a few days? ★

sdtwinsfan_63

Have nice day.....Jerry just run for office if you disagree with the current people on office.

Jolly Roger

sdtwinsfan_63, you may need to stay on your meds for a few days longer. You’re still not making any sense.

sdtwinsfan_63

Jolly Roger it is fatuous to speak to you. I feel when it comes to meds your better look in the mirror and take your own medication. I am not a churlish person as you. Fact I was not calling you a L. P. if you took it personnel that was not directed at you but it was to a different person, I will say this if you took personnel I apologize to you directly. All I see from you is petti fogger with people who disagree with your stance and the 1st amendment covers that.

The basics of what I have stated is this if you don't like the current people who are in office then run against them. My Comment on the mmc days was not a to a personnel beef with you it was your political views that disturbed me, but I came to realize it was your way to get your point across. So JR have a nice Day!

Jolly Roger

sdtwinsfan_63, I can't “disagree with your stance” when you don’t even describe it to those of us who have no what you’re talking about - or what your beef is with Mr. Jerry Wilson. And what is an “L.P.”? And what are “mmc days”?

Anyway, I’m not cut out to be a politician, but I do give small contributions to politicians across the country. Now that the Supreme Court has decided in CITIZENS UNITED that money is free speech, this is the new way voters must express themselves. It’s no longer “one person one vote.” Sadly, those days are long behind us.

sdtwinsfan_63

Jolly Roger I am not a umbrage person. On a another note I'm not callow either. My beef with Mr. Wilson is small and will be Private till we ever meet, it will not affect or picayune to you of the discussion because non of viewers will understand it.

On another note:

Trump is Trump you don't like him I and we get it. I also want to remind you I was no fan of 44 and still had to put up his forlorn policy's. You stated " Sadly, those days are long behind us well my response is this that is exactly why Trump won and the Dem's know they don't have a chance on 11/05/20. A politician is what I was referring Mr. Wilson to engage himself in instead of to flummox his readers. Trump is not your normal politician and I like it he is getting things done. Jolly Roger you can be cantankerous with me all you want. What is nefarious is the liberals complain about Thune, Rounds and Dusty, well there tied up in the witch hunt fabricated by some who love being in the Swamp because it might infringe on there bank accounts while real issues could be taken care off.

Jolly Roger

sdtwinsfan_63, Strange you would broadcast a Private beef in so public a way, and then decline to explain. Sort of like an anonymous crank phone call on a party line.

On another note: I’m still curious.What the heck is an “L.P.”? And what are “mmc days”?

sdtwinsfan_63

Jolly Roger to quote you "Why not ask me Mr. Wilson out for a beer and tell him what you think", I know Mr. Wilson and it will be kept private since it was a mount Marty college days, I did offer a tidbit on the issue. I will not palter to you. I will keep, my in your eyes "broadcast" private maybe someday you & Jerry can have a beer and chat.

Liberal Prophecy is the L.P. and that is directed to a certain reverend west of Yankton, I don't waste my time with him anymore because I found it disrespectful of a letter he submitted to this paper on the 1st day of Advent last December about politics.

I don't wish any malevolent on the rev, just wish he pick a different day to submit his letter.

Good Day, Jolly Roger.

ClownsRus

sdtwinsfan_63, Totally unrelated to this topic: I find your word choices unique. The usage is correct - but unusual. Is this intentional, as part of a writing style? Or something that has just evolved on its own over time. I’d be fascinated to know.

sdtwinsfan_63

ClownsRus I didn't name the person. I just stated I will never respond to him again, I feel he is nebbish. I plan on ending with this we all have a right to speak and we can be cantankerous with anyone. Read more books if want a writing style. I can assure you this I am not a jobbernowl.

Good day.

Have a good day.

ClownsRus

dtwinsfan_63 - Fascinating! You give us a taste of Yiddish and a bit of Brit talk. As I said, I find your word choices unique. How did you end up in South Dakota? Anyway, thanks for the entertainment!

sdtwinsfan_63

ClownRus - not Jewish nor a Brit just a farm kid grew up in this Great state, my ancestors probably came from Europe. Thanks!
