Why Does Trump Keep Doing This?

From Other Words

Either our system is going to break, or Trump's finally going to fail. It's an exhausting drama.

Does Trump understand democracy? I'm really asking.

His approach to politics is combative kill-or-be-killed. If you hit him, he will hit you back harder, no matter what the rules of the game are.

Perhaps that's because, up to a certain point, it's working. The man's still president. He's getting at least some of his agenda accomplished, even if it's only in the form of stalling progress on fighting climate change and other forms of throwing wrenches into anything he doesn't like.

Strangely, the question of whether Trump understands democracy is nearly irrelevant, right? By now we should be aware enough to jump over Trump Puppet escapades to try to determine the Master Puppets string pulls. In fact the question should morph into, do the ruling elites abide by the rule of law?

A very out to lunch stupid question, considering the circumstances of the whistle blowers Assange, Manning, Hale, Snowden and others compared to the latest CIA spy-operative fake-whistle-blower. Or as Ryan Christien in echoing a comment on The Last American Vagabond, it might as well be a CIA Mocking-Blower-Whistle-Bird operation.

As far as what is working, what is actually working, is the collaboration among all parts of the corrupt machine, from the US government and its failed constitutional components to the now slowing success of efforts by corporate institutions and purveyors of culture to control human life.

In regards to the lemons described by the elites as fighting climate change - for them it is essentially another sleight of hand, old school bullshit psyop designed to shi t the cost of their murderous externalities as a problem and cost to be borned and cleaned up by the victims and the planet instead of themselves, the perpetrating trillionaire class - The shell game wrenches thrown into the cogs of the corrupt machine they already control? That is for the purpose of giving us something to talk about, a distraction, merrily another psyop working ultimately for their production of lemonade transfigured into the Koolade.
