When I did “Let’s Look At Lachesis” in March of 2016, Donald Trump was running for president. Many people believed that most of what he was saying was true, that he was a Great Businessman, that he knew how to make deals, that he knew the “Best People”, that he was full of energy (unlike his “low energy” opponents), that he wanted to bring manufacturing back to the U.S. and rebuild the country’s crumbling infrastructure, and he wanted to “Drain The Swamp” (get money and corruption out of politics) and was doing all this for us! He had made his fortune, was no longer interested in making money, it was all about the American People, he’d be working for us now!!!!
During the debates, he told former Florida Governor, Jeb Bush, that the War In Iraq his brother, President George W. Bush, had gotten us into, was a “Stupid War”! He told the nation that Hillary Clinton was “owned” by Wall Street investment firm, Goldman Sachs! I thought, “OMG! Is Trump going to tell on everyone?” He even held out hope to many that he was going to stand up to the pharmaceutical industry’s over-zealous vaccination schedule! (He didn’t.)
Now, three years later? Good heavens! We have to re-think the whole thing! What has he done? What have we learned about Donald Trump?
Trump Appoints Foxes To Guard The Hen House
His cabinet appointees are antithetical to the mission of the departments they’re heading! The Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, doesn’t believe in public education.1/ The head of the Environmental Protection Agency, Andrew Wheeler, is a former coal lobbyist who’s been rolling back environmental protections faster than you can say “Climate Change Is A Hoax!”2/ The head of the Department of the Interior, David Bernhardt, is a former oil industry lobbyist involved in 17 different scandals including mismanagement and neglect of 500 million acres of public land!3/ Commerce Secretary, Wilbur Ross, has been called by Nation Magazine “Trump’s Most Corrupt Cabinet Official” for never divesting from his considerable business interests as promised and for his calendar consisting largely of meetings with businesses he has an interest in.4/
What Has Trump Done In Office?
Nothing! Donald Trump hasn’t, actually, done anything except sign a self-serving tax “reform” bill that benefited no one but himself and his fellow billionaires! In fact, here’s exactly what he said to a gathering of his rich friends at a Mar-a-Lago holiday dinner just hours after he signed the bill:
“You all just got a lot richer.”/5
In fact, this seems to be the whole raison d’etre of the Trump presidency–to make a lot of money for Trump and his loyalists! More money for him, for his family, his hangers-on and his donors! Listen, you have to remember, no American banks would lend Trump money anymore because of his failure to pay back loans/6 and then there’s his son-in-law who over-paid for 666 5th Ave. and was in over his head! You don’t want people in high office who need money and can easily be “bought”, have an incentive to be bought, and so can easily be influenced by special interests and foreign countries who need favors!
Trump Using The Presidency To Grow His Businesses
Trump didn’t divest from any of his businesses–none of his hotels or golf resorts, etc. He announced at the G-7 Summit that in the future, they should meet at his Doral Golf Club in Miami!
Saudi-connected lobbyists booked 500 rooms in the Trump International Hotel between 2016-2017! This is like saying, “Look! We did you a favor, now here’s what we want in return!”
The Air Force has re-routed its flights in order to re-fuel and stay at Trump’s Turnberry Golf Resort in Scotland, and on it goes with the many ways Trump has cashed in on the American presidency.
What Does Trump Do All Day?
Nothing! He watches Fox News and he tweets about what he’s seen. According to the Los Angeles Times:
By Eli Stokols, Chris Megerian
Sep. 4, 2019
President Trump’s daily Twitter feed in recent weeks has been a torrent of personal attacks, news commentary, weather reports, unfounded claims and congratulatory notes. But when it comes to his day job, the American people have seen little of him.
This week, aside from daily intelligence briefings and private lunches with Cabinet members, Trump has only one event on his schedule — on Thursday he will award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to [Basketball] legend … Jerry West.
Suffice it to say, Donald Trump is the exact opposite of everything he claimed to be and said he would be on the campaign trail. He’s averse to responsibility, he’s negotiated no deals with the Democrats (the opposition party), he hasn’t brought back a single manufacturing industry, he hasn’t negotiated or signed an infrastructure bill, he’s done nothing on health care as promised and he certainly hasn’t “drained the swamp”!
His erratic behavior 7/ has led to a record number of firings and resignations in his presidency! It starts with General Flynn being forced out in scandal just weeks into his presidency, and ends in Energy Secretary Rick Perry’s resignation this week, with 54 resignations and firings in between! It includes 2 chiefs-of-staff, the Attorney General, 2 “acting” Attorneys General, the head of the FBI, the assistant head of the FBI, 3 press secretaries, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Labor, the Director of National Intelligence, 3 Secretaries of Homeland Security, the Secretary of Defense, the Ambassador to the U.N., the White House Counsel, the National Security Adviser, the Secretary of Health and Human Services and as I speak, the 4th Secretary of Homeland Security is resigning!
Lies, Lies and More Lies
The Washington Post has kept track of Trump’s lies since taking office, and they now number at over 12,000! His own lawyer, John Dowd, called Trump “a f***ing liar.” 8/
According to Business Insider:
“He’s like a bull seeing red….There’s just no getting through to him, and you can kiss your plans for the day goodbye because you’re basically stuck looking after a 4-year-old now.”9/
The Best People!
Trump promised us that he knew only “the Best People”! It turned out he didn’t know anyone! Most of the positions in the Trump administration aren’t even filled! He hires people he sees on Fox News. That’s where he got John Bolton from, who later quit in disgust and whose tell-all book is due out any day now, and Deputy Chief-of-Staff, Bill Shine, who has resigned as well! In fact, people go on Fox News deliberately to audition for positions in the White House!
According to Business Insider:
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s favorite TV network is increasingly serving as a West Wing casting call, as the president reshapes his administration with camera-ready personalities. 10/
I Didn’t Do It!
You all remember the “Zero Tolerance Policy” that resulted in Mexican children being taken away from their parents at the Mexican border? With no way of tracking their where-abouts for the sake of their parents ever getting them back? Trump’s defense to that? “I didn’t do it! It was Obama! He did it!” Trump has since turned his attention to deporting immigrant children with terminal diseases who are in this country legally:
… the Trump administration recently told families who were granted permission to stay [in the US] for medical care that their permission to stay has been rescinded and they have 33 days to leave the country.11/
After a huge public outcry, Trump said it was all a mistake.
Neo-Nazis Are “Very Fine People”
Everyone remembers that he couldn’t tell the difference between the White Nationalists marching to save Confederate (pro-slavery) monuments in Virginia and those protesting against them in 2017. “There were very fine people on both sides,” he said, “and I have no doubt about it, and you have no doubt about it either!” 12/ One of the nazis actually drove his car into a crowd of counter-protesters, injuring many and killing one of them.
Trump also famously referred to certain African countries, Central American countries and Haiti as “sh*t-hole” countries, and told 4 Congresswomen of color to “go back where they came from” even though they came from here!
His Problem With Women
The judge he appointed to fill a Supreme Court seat, Bret Kavanaugh, was credibly accused of sexual assault by more than one woman and he, Trump, himself, is credibly accused of rape by Elle advice columnist, E. Jean Carroll. In fact, over 25 women have accused Trump of sexual assault.13/
His Problem With The Environment
Trump has rolled back 85 environmental regulations, including the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act. According to the New York Times:
President Trump has made eliminating federal regulations a priority. His administration, with help from Republicans in Congress, has often targeted environmental rules it sees as burdensome to the fossil fuel industry [Big Oil and Gas] and other big businesses. 14/
And, as if you didn’t already know, Donald Trump is about to be impeached for “shaking down” the president of Ukraine, telling him in a phone call that the military aid Ukraine was promised is actually contingent upon the Ukraine “investigating” Trump’s Democratic opponent in the upcoming election–Joe Biden. As you can guess, this is against the law. You can’t ask for help from a foreign country in an American election. And then, when he was caught committing this crime, he responded by asking China to do the same thing! 15/
Here’s the point: If Joe Biden has committed a crime or a corrupt act, the place to go is the Justice Department or the State Department for an investigation–foreign countries cannot “investigate” American citizens!!!!
Trump has refused to cooperate in the Impeachment investigation, which means he has refused to turn over documents requested by Congress and has ordered his staff not to testify and to ignore all subpoenas as well. Can you imagine if you or I refused to appear in court in response to a subpoena? OMG! We’d be arrested! But Trump has said that according to the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution, he can do whatever he wants! Really? This is what the 2nd Amendment says:
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”
Breaking Our Promise To The Kurds
The latest outrage? Yet another humanitarian crisis! We had roughly 2,000 soldiers in Northern Syria protecting the Kurds who helped us defeat Isis (a terrorist group) in that part of the world. The Turks don’t like the Kurds. Turkey is on the border of Syria. Turkey wants American soldiers out of Syria. Trump owns 2 Trump Towers in Turkey. The president of Turkey asked Trump to pull his soldiers out of Northern Syria and Trump said, without consulting anyone, “OK,” and thus ushered in the ensuing Turkish military assault against the Kurds going on right now as we speak, causing thousands of people to flee for their lives. Even Trump’s own party is distraught over this.
According to NBC News: “Bolton said he believes there is a personal or business relationship dictating Trump’s position on Turkey because none of his advisers are aligned with him on the issue…”
But at least Trump is modest. Have you seen his latest tweet?
Donald J. Trump
As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!). They must, with Europe and others, watch over…17/
OMG! What??? “In my great and unmatched wisdom”? Is he serious? And he will destroy the economy of Turkey? He’s done it before? What is he talking about????
He Can’t Read
Finally, here’s something that you would think would disqualify anyone from being president: He can’t read! The Presidential Daily Brief is brought to him every day and he doesn’t read it! The Atlantic writes in an article called “The President Who Doesn’t Read”:
“He didn’t process information in any conventional sense,” Wolff writes. “He didn’t read. He didn’t really even skim. Some believed that for all practical purposes he was no more than semi-literate.”
Wolff quotes economic adviser Gary Cohn: “It’s worse than you can imagine … Trump won’t read anything—not one-page memos, not the brief policy papers, nothing. He gets up halfway through meetings with world leaders because he is bored.”18/
Homeopathically speaking—since this is a homeopathy journal—with everything we’ve learned about Donald Trump over the past 3 years, do I still think he’s a constitutional Lachesis? Let’s make a list of the elements of the case. You can do this at home and see if your list agrees with mine, and then repertorize to see which remedy comes out on top.
- Aversion to responsibility
- Averse to reading
- Erratic behavior
And here it is:
It appears the president of the United States may be a Medorrhinum! Good lord! (I apologize for this making no sense to readers not familiar with homeopathy.)
But, I have since added 3 more rubrics to the repertorization now that the impeachment trial is over, mainly because newspapers have been reporting that Trump is on a “Vengeance Tour”–getting even with White House officials deemed to have been “disloyal” to him, replacing them only with “loyalists”; and also because Trump has been saying, “The government is full of SNAKES,” and he just called Governor Jay Inslee of Washington a snake and, in fact, he is very fond of reciting a poem that ends in the words, “You knew I was a snake when you took me in!” So, I have added the following rubrics to my list:
- Vindictive, 2. Fear of Snakes, 3. Fear of Being Betrayed
Now the “totality” analysis of my repertorization has Medorrhinum in 1st place and Lachesis in 2nd place! The “weighted” analysis has Lachesis in 1st place while the “expert” analysis has Medorrhinum in 1st place! In other words, it’s almost a tie!
But Trump’s constant references to snakes (of which Lachesis is one!) and his being on a “vengeance tour” after the impeachment, is pushing me over toward Lachesis.
Lachesis is a very aggressive snake! It will chase you down and exact revenge if you cross into his territory, even in the slightest way! Notice Trump set his “army” of insurrectionists loose on his own vice-president on January 6th because Vice President Pence decided—correctly—that he could not break the law by throwing Biden votes out and declaring Trump the winner, as he was told to do! (Clarification: the Vice President presides over the final vote count, it’s a ceremonial role which conveys no actual “power”.) Pence even conferred with former Vice President Dan Quayle, saying, “Can I do this? They want me to declare Trump the winner.” “NO!!!” said Quayle. “Forget it.”
For this act of “disloyalty” (refusing to break the law for the benefit of Donald Trump), Pence had to be whisked out of the Capitol by the Secret Service as the mob began chanting “Hang Mike Pence! Hang Mike Pence!” Trump had given the “order” through a tweet, saying that Pence didn’t have the courage to act. A make-shift gallows had been erected by the mob on the steps of the Capitol Building.
This is vengeance! Is Medorrhinum in that rubric? (Mind: vindictive, vengeful) No, it is not!
Do you remember why Trump fired FBI director James Comey? (Pronounced COH-ME) In a private dinner, Trump demanded a pledge of “loyalty” from him. Comey said, “I can only promise to always be truthful.” For that he was fired. Trump, the pathological liar, was not interested in a promise to always be true. (Trump, Comey in image below)
Pence was ordered to break the law for Donald Trump. When he wouldn’t do it, he came close to losing his life. I would have to say, this behavior goes more for Lachesis than it does for Medorrhinum. I’m starting to think I was right the first time. Moreover, we have this: Bob Woodward released his taped interviews with Donald Trump. AOL News writes: “The tapes allow listeners to hear Trump repeatedly interrupting and at times mocking Woodward as they speak about the most pressing policy issues of his presidency….” Interrupting and mocking are Lachesis words.
