Trump’s Stalingrad

Steps back a minute and look at one of the main course of events that brought Hitler to his knees. Most of his war efforts-invasions of other countries had been going smoothly with very few hiccups. He thought he and his mighty armies were invincible. He totally underestimated the fighting capability of the Soviet Army. In the end, when defeat was eminent and certain, he refused to accept the fact that the Russians were destroying his army. Hitler underestimated the power of the Russian army and the brutal Russian winters.

Hitler’s Generals told him, to continue fighting in Russia ,was a lost cause. He refused to believe them. As a result, hundreds of thousands German solders were killed and 25 divisions were lost.  One hundred and eighty thousand Germans were captured.

Fast forwards to today. Trump and his minions have denied and refuse to accept the strength of the Coronavirus 19 virus.  Trump has been strutting around with his chest stuck out bragging about how great America is doing. Despite warnings to the contrary from those in the know, he refuse to accept their conclusions and says, ”All is well. “ Despite warnings about the condition of the American economy, he says America is well on its way to overcoming the down turn in the economy and will recover by the end of 2020. According to reliable sources, untold number of Americans have died due to the outbreak of Coronavirus 19 virus. The number of deaths in America does not interest him, He sees it as collateral damage Trump’s inaction to information he received in January about an impending Pandemic virus outbreak in America defies logic.  Why did he refuse to take action, initially?

Hitler was obsessed with capturing Stalingrad, no matter the cost in human lives. Trump is obsessed with keeping good stock market numbers, low unemployment numbers and new jobs created, despite increasing loss of lives and illness. . Trump feels these are the numbers that count in America. He is determined to open up factories, beaches, bars, and houses of worship and other workplaces where many people work together in close quarters. Forgot one other number he is obsessed with- the number of people at his rallies.

Giving credit where credit is due

America was warned about the eventual Meltdown of the Stock Market during the rein of the Trump administration.  Of course, Trump and his supporters said nothing was further from the truth. Well here we are. Trump is not totally to blame for the meltdown. However he is responsible for creating false and unsustainable Stock Market numbers. Remember how he pressured Chairman Powell causing him to make unnecessary maneuvers and adjustments in the Federal Reserve?
Trumpsters, you gave Trump credit for the increase in the Stock Market. I agree, he should be given credit. Now, if he has that kind of control of the Stock Market, then it stands to reason that he be given the same consideration when the market is in decline. Please do not exonerate him from the decline of the Stock Market. If you give him credit for the sunshine, then give him credit for the thunderstorm. I watched as he gave indirect hints to his Wall Street buddies to buy or sell stock. He indicated he had made a great Trade deal with China. This was untrue, but it caused a surge in the Stock market. I am waiting for him to say something that will stabilize the market. This situation is exactly what many voters were afraid of. They knew he was ill-prepared to deal with issues of this sort. Didn’t many people say that there would be a meltdown of the Market? Well, here it is. He is ill-prepared, and is not surrounded with people who can guide him and America through some very troubling and uncertain times. Of course, Trump will do as he always do, deny any responsibility for the downward spiral of the Stock Market. Just wait, he will take credit as soon as the market heads in a different direction. More troubling is that his rabid supporters are unwilling to hold him responsible for the direction the Stock Market is currently headed, despite lauding over him, and suggesting his decisions were driving the market when it was posting daily record highs. Folks, stop being selective, when it comes to holding Trump responsible. Remember, he said he could do anything he wants to do as President. AG Barr and his Republican enablers agrees with him. I am sure he wants the market to head in a different direction. So Master Trump, speak the word! Say the magic words that will get you and your supporters that which they are breathlessly waiting for.
