“Trump is Scottish!

This may not surprise you, but you will be happy to learn that Donald Trump is not only of German extraction but also is at least half Scottish, both his maternal grandparents and his mother being born in Scotland.  Strangely he hasn’t mentioned this compelling evidence of insight, intellect, honesty and productivity. Perhaps he is simply too modest (a virtue) or believes that voters could think he were boasting.  Or, maybe he’s just saving the best news for a good punch-line!
 
What a change from the sleazy, parasitic money-changers, traitors and con-men who have controlled our lives and destiny during the past few decades. Given more time they would have dispossessed us of both our freedom and our assets, not to mention our reputation.”

~ Ian V. Macdonald, former Canadian Ambassador, Publisher and Author

 

Recently I received an email from my friend and associate Ian V. Macdonald that contained a brief biographical sketch of Donald Trump’s life and work. Given all the divergent media hype from every possible angle that’s been flooding cyberspace for months now I decided to read the bio through and maybe…just maybe… try to catch a bit of general, objective information on this colourful and provocative individual who has managed to throw the whole nation of American into a state of turbulent confusion, outrage and, yes, even hope…hope that there still could be a slim chance that the US of A might redeem its soul and get back to its non-GMO roots during these trying times.

After reading the bio on Trump I didn’t give it much more thought but later that night, much to my amused amazement I ended up having a dream about Donald T! I wish I had gotten out of bed right away and wrote down everything that went on but, alas, I didn’t. The next day I could only recollect the fact that Donald Trump was in the scenarios that were passing through my dreamworld and that he was talking with me and just hanging out like one of the guys (so to speak). The substance of our discussions are gone and all that was left was a feeling or tone; a mood of mind wherein what had transpired was nothing more than common place as if it had been my neighbour from across the road who’d appeared in the night to discuss some mundane subject with me.

What was totally missing from the dream was the media circus frenzy that has been performing non-stop since Donald Trump announced to the world that he definitely had a dog in the presidential race. Speculation and assumption from every quarter has been the order of the day when it comes to coverage of every word and deed (past and present) of Donald Trump.

Those who have witnessed American politics over the past six or seven decades and seen every dirty trick in the book used in order to capture the title to the Number 1 spot on the global political calendar are the most skeptical of Trump (and rightfully so). Those who’ve been immersed in the political process and have benefited from it’s manipulation by the powerful lobbyists have had the comfort of pre-emptive foreknowledge of events pulled from under their feet and are being forced for the first time to actually consider radical possibilities that could unfold should Trump end up triumphant in his quest for the presidential title.

Being one of the former group above I have been observing the machinations of the U.S.A. since that historic day on November 22nd, 1963 when I first heard the intercom suddenly come on in my high school class and the principal announcing to us that US President J.F. Kennedy had been assassinated. It was the first forewarning that the world was heading down the rough road to hell.
