Want Trump as President? His Decisons would make Cheney look like a Precious Kitten

Jeremy Scahill’s (perhaps one of the best journalists around) report in The Intercept (the best journalism site in the world, IMNSHO):

On that hideous asshole, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn:

“Flynn’s presence in Trump’s corner means that a very sophisticated, accomplished assassin could end up in a position of tremendous authority. At a minimum, Trump’s childish awe he exhibits around military figures-especially Flynn-will make it very easy for the black ops crowd to ram through their agenda. Combined with the Christian supremacy and bigotry within Camp Trump, the embrace of the JSOC and CIA paramilitary worldview would resurrect some of the most horrendous aspects of the Bush-Cheney program and combine them with the worst of the Obama administration’s policies. Perhaps Trump would call this bipartisanship.”

He has a high intelligence position waiting for him in a Trump administration.

But just as bad is General Jerry Boykin:

“Recently, Trump has been touting the endorsements he has received from a variety of military figures, including one of the most insane lunatics in modern U.S. history, Gen. Jerry Boykin, an open bigot who proudly views himself as a Christian crusader. There has been much written on Boykin’s views on Muslims (hates them, wants all mosques banned and believes Islam should be exempt from First Amendment protections), his belief that Obama is implementing Shariah law with the help of George Soros and the AIG bailout (or something) and how history has misunderstood Hitler. Oh, and Jews should all convert to Christianity and Jesus is a “man’s man” and will return to planet Earth wielding an AR-15. Jesus “was a man’s man, but we feminized him in the church…he was a tough guy and that’s the Jesus that I want to be like,” Boykin said. “I believe now – I’ve checked this out – I believe that sword he’ll be carrying when he comes back is an AR-15.”

Boykin, who has a storied career in the world of Pentagon Black Ops, has become a sort of carnival barker in his retirement, though he does maintain real connections to and respect from some very unsavory quarters of the national security establishment. Secretary of Defense Boykin would look a lot like a weird LSD trip at the Project for a New American Century (see below) -with Boykin dressed as a cowboy riding a nuclear missile shaped like a crucifix and launched at teh Muslin. Thankfully, Boykin has enough documented bat shit crazy that anyone putting him through a Senate confirmation proceeding would almost certainly be punking all of us.”


You must also understand that I am far from being anti-military.  I’m a veteran.  But there are some hideous leaders and former leaders in the military whose insane views would bring us down.


From Project for the Old American Century
(a website dedicated to explain who these people really are)

Established in the spring of 1997 and funded largely by the energy and arms industries, the Project for the New American Century was founded as the neoconservative think tank whose stated goal was to usher in a “new American century”. Having won the cold war and no military threat to speak of, this group of ideologues created a blueprint for the future whose agenda was to capitalize upon our surplus of military forces and funds and forcing American hegemony and corporate privatization throughout the world. In their statement of principles they outline a fourfold agenda:

  1. Increase an already enormous military budget at the expense of domestic social programs
  2. Toppling of regimes resistant to our corporate interests
  3. Forcing democracy at the barrel of a gun in regions that have no history of the democratic process
  4. Replacing the UN’s role of preserving and extending international order
