Why all the crooks in Trummp's administration? Like Nixon, the head guy, who said,"I am not a crook"

................Nixon was indeed a crook. So is Trump
.When the head guy gets away with ...everything, the rest of the gang thinks that they can also get away with everything. It is that simple. But the rest of the Nixon gang, did not get away with anything!!...
.............Same with Trump Gang!!!!!!!!!
.
............Over a long period of time, neither will Trump & family..........................................................
............History is the proof, and the Trump name will be sh*t very soon.

True Meaning of Current phrase about ..."Brandon"....and I didn't know this...

"Let's Go Brandon"...= ...same as....F**k Joe Biden..

The line has become conservative code for something far more vulgar: “F—- Joe Biden.” It’s all the rage among Republicans wanting to prove their conservative credentials, a not-so-secret handshake that signals they’re in sync with the party’s base.

"People destroying themselves blindly following fear," Today I was thinking about World War 2..

___________________________________________________________________________________

Some background info....I was thinking about World History.
Somehow, I was wondering why Hitler invaded the Soviet Union. (Often I ask myself questions like this because
I taught World History and U.S. History in high schools in Chicago & I had forgot the reasons)

Short answer: He was sure that the Soviets would be defeated in a few months, and that part of the war would be
over... Germany would have all that land to grow and prosper into the decades that followed victory (Which
Hitler was sure of.)

Some pictures on the internet had German Soldiers smiling and enjoying the first few weeks of the invasion. They had
the look of victory in their eyes. It was amazing to see them feeling victory before the battle was over. Millions died
when that invasion happened. Tens of millions. And the Soviets paid a horrible price for that, but in the end, the Soviets
and the Allies won, and the German invaders lost.

..To see pictures of invaders smelling victory before it happens is not unusual. Throughout history, that has happened
again and again. But that look of those soldiers feeling totally superior before the end of the battle...(in the first few
weeks of the invasion in 1941, brings truth to the idea, that..."Blindly following fear leads to self-destruction." The German soldiers in the pictures did not know what was going to happen to their victory smiles.

....Millions of people blindly followed Hitler, and like the soldiers in the beginning had no fear.. Why? They had
no fear because they were sure they were going to win. Soviet Soldiers did not give up, they were trying to
save their country from the horrors of the German Invasion ..

Unless we take courses in history or have relatives that fought in WWII, it is possible that many do not know
about the Soviet battles to save their country from Nazi Germany. In the Soviet Union people know, but here
in the U.S.A. it is history of 70 to 80 years ago. Yes, there is information for all to know about, but you have
to at least look for the information, or come upon it by accident, & take the time to read at length what happened.
World War II movies are on discs and in libraries. How many look for those discs and play the movies or read the
books. YES, iN SOME MINDS WORLD WAR 2, IS ANCIENT HISTORY. Very sad indeed..

........Thank You for reading this...Stuart G
