God wills that [the Civil War] continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword.

-- Abraham Lincoln's Second Inaugural, March 4, 1865
(He was dead 41 days later.)

Donald Trump is no accident.

He is our Imperial Vulture come home to roost. Our Exceptional Karma. The ultimate incineration of a City on a Hill defined by arrogance, brutality, and greed.

Trump's willful negligence has killed more Americans in three months than did the Vietnam War in 10 years.

He's saturated our lives with dictatorship, disease, dementia, depression.

But we have no claim to self-pity.

Pinochet (Chile), Mobutu (Congo/Zaire), the Greek Junta, the Shah (Iran), Somoza (Nicaragua), Diem/Thieu/Ky (Vietnam), Yeltsin/Putin (Russia), Pol Pot (Cambodia), Lord Jeffrey Amherst (Indigenous America), Salazar (Portugal), Marcos (the Philippines), Alvarado (Honduras), the Duvaliers (Haiti) ...murderers, thieves, despots, liars, bigots, buffoons, puppets, thugs, butchers, hypocrites, clowns, torturers, mobsters, devils incarnate ... all installed to serve American corporate interests.

They are Trump and he is them.

The butchery we've imposed on humankind and the planet has at last come home to roost. Trump is Earth's retaliatory demon, here to ravage the remnants of a cruel, hypocritical, dying empire.

China will soon eclipse America's once insurmountable economic dominance. Our military is an ornate, obsolete, obscene husk. We're a down-bound #2, a failing state. Trump has left us gutted, poisoned, betrayed, mocked, abused, leveled, trashed, choking in the dust (we can't breathe!!!).

He is history's inevitable payback.

We can't get him gone until we fully face our nation's stake in his epic evil.
