Romney, again.

©2016 drkate

In 2012 I wrote a blog post nailing down the reason the republicans wanted Romney to run against Obama: so Obama would win.  And he did.  Its the same reason why the republicans ran 16 people besides Trump–all of them would have lost to Hillary Clinton. Trump was the only one who could beat Clinton as he was unknown and unpredictable.  The democrats could not win against him even with their massive, and known, vote fraud.

The GOP elite never wanted to beat the democrats and haven’t wanted to for a long time.  As long as they can beat their chests and whine about the democrats, and not actually do anything they can participate in the graft…so they are just fine letting democrats win.

Dogs-Against-Romney1The election in 2012 against Obama should have been won.  It was Romney’s to lose and he lost it. But hey, when dogs nationwide are against you…

romneytrainAnd I thought that was the end of the story with Romney.  His “reward” for running and willingly losing the election, though, was Paul Ryan as speaker, through which his Bain Capital was bailed out along with the Puerto Rico bailout pushed by Ryan.

But here he is again, and in a most interesting situation, is probably having a daily diet eating crow since he met with Trump. I don’t think the body language in the video of him leaving the meeting looked positive about any position.  I hear he is preparing an apology to Trump and his supporters because he’s interested in the job,  but I don’t think that will convince anyone he is sincere. Romney’s attacks on Trump went to his person, his integrity, and his honor.

Romney and the #nevertrumpers almost blew it for the American people, the “republicans” and Trump; actively supported all of Trump’s opponents; and probably would have been in the Clinton administration. Remember this cabal of people in the photo.  Romney and Ryan still want the presidency.  Placing Romney anywhere near SoS position will enable the GOPe to have an alternative route around Trump. However, President Elect Trump would not have made it this far without knowing that this drama and intrigue is underway.

So there is a much larger strategy underway that we don’t know in floating Romney out there as secretary of state.  We can observe that it has caused an informative reaction across the spectrum which is very interesting to watch….and there seems to be something strategic going on,  discussed in the video below.

I don’t think the nation can afford two presidents… as losers seem to try to create their own kingdoms.

Thanksgiving 2016

Since 2011 I’ve published this writing by Howard Thurman on Thanksgiving…and read it at gatherings more times than I can count.  This year an added gratefulness for our national “election” results….we simply used our system to outvote the fraud.

Did we dodge a bullet, or just buy a little more time?

Have a joyous, thoughtful, grateful, and reflective Thanksgiving.  Heal and rest from it all, no politics.

A Litany of Thanksgiving

Today, I make my Sacrament of Thanksgiving

I begin with the simple things of my days:

Fresh air to breathe,

Cool water to drink,

The taste of food,

The protection of house and clothes,

The comforts of home.

For all these, I make an act of Thanksgiving this day!

***

I bring to mind all of the warmth of humankind that I have known:

My Mother’s arms,

The strength of my father,

The playmates of my childhood,

The wonderful stories brought to me from the lives of many who have talked of days gone by when fairies and giants and all kinds of magic held sway;

The tears I have shed, the tears I have seen;

The excitement of laughter and the twinkle in the eye with its reminder that life is   good.

For all of these I make an act of Thanksgiving this day.

***

I finger one by one the messages of hope that awaited me at the crossroads:

The smile of approval from those who held in their hands the reins of my security;

The tightening of the grip in the simple handshake when I feared the step before me in the darkness;

The whisper in my heart when the temptation was fiercest and the claims of appetite were not to be denied;

The crucial word said, the simple sentence from an open page when my decision hung in the balance.

For all these , I make an act of Thanksgiving this day.

***

I pass before me the main springs of my heritage:

The fruits of the labors of countless generations who have lived before me, without whom my own life would have no meaning;

The seers who saw visions and dreamed dreams;

The prophets who sensed a truth greater than mind could grasp and whose words could only find fulfillment in the years which they would never see;

The workers whose sweat has watered the trees, the leaves of which are for the healing of the nations;

The pilgrims who set their sails for lands beyond all horizons, whose courage made paths into new worlds and far off places;

The saviors whose blood was shed with a recklessness that only a dream could inspire and God command.

For all of these, I make an act of Thanksgiving this day.

***

I linger over the meaning of my own life and the commitment to which I give the loyalty of my heart and mind:

The little purposes in which I have shared with my loves, my desires, my gifts;

The restlessness which bottoms all I do with its stark insistence that I have never done my best, I have never dared to reach for the highest;

The big hope that never quite deserts me, that I and my kind will study war no more, that love and tenderness and all of the inner graces of Almight affection will cover the life of the children of God as waters cover the sea.

***

All these and more than mind can think and heart can feel,

I make as my sacrament of Thanksgiving to Thee,

Our Creator, in humbleness of mind and simplicity of heart.

~ A poem by Howard Thurman, Thanksgiving 1959~
