SUBJECT:  Mr. Gary Sasse’s article: Trump battles guerrillas

Dear Editor:

The My Turn opinion about leaks being released by civil servants by Gary Sasse was stunning for lots of reasons.   He clearly would like to stop the leaks.  The problem is that without these leaks, we would not know anything about the incompetence of Mr. Trump’s Presidency.  
Mr. Sasse prefers to ignore the long term relationship between Jeff Sessions and Stephen Bannon.  They are founders and proponents white nationalism.  Bannon’s website, Breitbart, has millions of white supremacy advocates.
Not only do Sessions and Bannon support White Supremacy, they want to put women “back” where they belong. These are the ugliest attitudes to be sitting in the Whitehouse in decades.  While Mr. Sasse rages against the leakers, he ignores the real “Gorilla” in the room: Donald Trump.
You may think that that is too strong, but let us look at just some of what is happening.  The National Endowment for  the Arts will be defunded.  Planned Parenthood will lose all federal funding. His EPA Secretary denies that humans have anything to do with Global Warming, and will go along with the 26% budget cut in his agency.  The State Department will lose 37% of its budget.  At Education, Trump appointed a self-appointed advocate for the private school movement.  The former Secretary of Labor candidate hated unions.  1,500 positions in the federal government have not been filled, and that does not include the 519 of the 543 positions that require Senate approval which are still empty. With Trumpcare, 15 million Americans will lose their health insurance.  
No, the bureaucratic guerrillas are exactly what we need.

Sincerely yours,

Marc Kohler

New blog post: You know, in the end, to does not matter what the Democrats do. They gave up any interest in social change long ago. They are corporate representatives--that's all. On the Republican side, according to Dark Money, the donors give to the Koch brothers. Those two men control the money going everywhere. ALEC is their operation. They own most state legislatures, have made judges elected, have the majority of governors, and gerrymandered counties to make them Republican forever. Not only are the Democrats poor leaders and out of touch with reality, they offer their money to groups who come and competitively request it. The Democrats system is stupid, disorganized, basically pure window dressing. The fact that Bernie Sanders never joined the Democratic Party was part of the Republican's plan. He could be as extreme as he wanted to be. His purpose was just to give the victory to Trump. In fact, there is nothing anyone can do anything about the Trump Presidency. There was no real Stop Trump Movement. There were no twenty Electoral College Trump electors who were going to vote for Hillary. Most importantly, the Russian connections mean nothing. They are just what Trump calls them--fake news. The amounts of money involved are so large that no one in this coup de tat will do anything to stop it. Wilbur Ross, our new Commerce Secretary, one of two owners of the Cypress Bank that was used for Trump to sell a 40 million dollar home to a Russian oligarch for 100 million dollars. Think about the money that Rex Tillerson and Exxon will make when Russian sinctions are dropped. Exxon will make trillions from the 65 million acres of land that Putin leased to Exxon. Meanwhile, Stephen Bannon, and his gang of Cabinet Posts will eviscerate our government. They will not make any of of there 2,000 appointments that they have aovided, because there is no reason to manage a government that is over.

The progressive insanity and treason 
of President Donald Trump]

Tweet: February 4, 2017  3 hours ago3 hours ago3 hours ago
The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!

 With this statement, Trump proves that he has lost any attachment to reality and sanity.  Let's look at his words.
     In the "Judge" Tweet, Trump shows all aspects of a lawless President.  No President in the history of the United States would have called a sitting Federal Judge "so-called".  It attacks the very standing and the status of the Judiciary.  U.S. District Court Senior Judge James L. Robert was nominated to the bench by President George Bush.  His appointment was approved by 99 Senators.  Trump's words means that he dos not respect the laws of our nation.  "So-called" is a snide, vicious, fascist remark.  It smacks of demagoguery  and  dictatorship.  Saying that a decision of a Federal Judge is "ridiculous" is ridiculous.  No decisions by a Judge at this level is ridiculous.  He may disagree with it. He may think that is is not appropriate, but using this term says much more about Trump than the judge.  We do not live in a nation where the leaders of the three branches of our government call each other names.  Trump has called Senator Schumer a "clown".  This is all irrational, arrogant, and a sign of the incapacity to function in the real world of our government with respect and MUTUAL respect.  What Trump has proven is that he will NOT cooperate with the Judiciary or the Legislative Branches of government.  This is not an appropriate stance, and reflects either a treasonous bent or mental illness.  Either, way he has to be impeached as soon as possible.  Lastly, claiming that this Stay takes "law-enforcement away from our country" is advocacy for anarchy, yes one more treasonous statement.  The law is the law, and Donald Trump is not the law of this country!

BLOG POST #14 February 3, 2016
                       Trump's Sociopath Description

We cannot forget that Donald Trump is dangerous sociopath.  His life has been a disgusting parade of law breaking, bullying, race hatred, philandering, and without the capacity to follow one subject for more than five minutes. Below is the checklist that matches with Trump.  
Factor 1: Personality "Aggressive narcissism" 
Glibness/superficial charm - check - Self evident 
Grandiose sense of self-worth - check - I am genius and only need to consult with my brain 
Pathological lying - check - Only 4% truth telling
Cunning/manipulative - check - How he has conned his slaves. 
Lack of remorse or guilt - check - Will not apologize to god 
Shallow affect (genuine emotion is short-lived and egocentric) - check - Mocking diabled and war veterans 
Callousness; lack of empathy - check - Saying he is right when mass murders happen 
Failure to accept responsibility for own actions - check - if he loses election he is cheated and rigged. 

Factor 2: Case history "Socially deviant lifestyle". 
Need for stimulation/proneness to boredom - check - Inability to talk one topic evidenced by daily flipflopping 
Parasitic lifestyle - check - history of cheating the weak and     small guys including Trump U, vendors and employees 
Poor behavioral control - check - Troll him with a tweet and he will hit back without control 
Lack of realistic long-term goals - check - evidenced by failed businesses like Trump airline, Trump Uni, Trump Steak, Trump realty etc 
Impulsivity - check - obvious 
Irresponsibility - check - attitude of a 6 year old, consequences be damned 
Juvenile delinquency - check - as evident by his student days punching the teacher saved by his father 
Early behavior problems - check - due to which he was put in boarding school 

Traits not correlated with either factor 
Promiscuous sexual behavior -  check - cheating and multiple marriages 
Many short-term marital relationships -  check 
Criminal versatility -  check - keeps on lying and keeps inventing bigger lies to cover previous lies 
Acquired behavioural sociopathy/sociological conditioning -  check - always gets ahead deceiving everyone 
Anyone who is objective can clearly see TRUMP is a sociopath which is also accepted by his "Art of the deal" writer. check the link  here is the link to the above list:

Okay, President Trump has two telephone calls which rock the work. He is alienated two allies and trading partners which are two of our best friends in the world. His response came out at the Prayer event: "...Believe me. When you hear about the tough phone calls I'm having, don't worry about it. Just don't worry about it. They're tough. We have to tough. It's time we're going to be a little tough folks. We're taking advantage of by every nation in the world virtually. It's not going to happen anymore. It's not going to happen anymore..." The point he is making is that he will continue to make destructive phone calls, continue to alienate our allies, and continue to make our citizens less safe both at home and over-seas. This is insanity. The United States constitute 5% of the world's population but consume 24% of the world's energy. So, the idea that the world has "taken advantage" of America is a lie! It is nuts. We are the colonial ruler for the world. When the national community created a fair and equitable distribution of newly discovered oil wealth in Gabon. Rex Tillerson approached the dictator, and offered him billions of dollars in royalties. The dictator, Ali Bongo Ondimba, loved the idea. So, he is becoming one of the richest people in the world, and Gabon continues to be one of the poorest countries in the world. Exxon is making billions, too. He is now your Secretary of State. So, we, America, is and has for decades been no differeent for the colonial powers from a hundred years ago,. We exploit countries, create poverty, and destroy the lives of millions. Trump's claim is not only not true, but it is irrational. His continuation as President presents us with a clear and present danger for our lives. He must resoign.

America has become a rogue nation

America, in less than two weeks, has become a rogue nation. Over 20,000 travelers have been stopped in foreign airports from boarding. It as taken years for these people to reach the right and the Visas to come to the United States. Institutions and business throughout the country have had plans and hopes dashed. This is what Trump promised? We have the destroyed thousands of lives. Trump just insulted both the Prime Minister of Australia and the President of Mexico. In the end, his actions constitute treason for they are putting our nation and our citizens in eminent danger especially if they are military people depending on citizens of the banned states for support and aid. Trump will be removing all the sanctions against Russia and the treason will extend to the 65 millions acres of land leased to Exxon for drilling.  White Supremacy is now the rule of the land.

Letter to the Editor published in the Providence Journal, January 18, 2017

Marc W. Kohler: The problem wasn't the reporters, it was Trump

I write in response to Mark Patinkin's Jan. 13 column "Trump press turns into a chaotic mob."
According to the American Press Institute, journalism is "the activity of gathering, assessing, creating, and presenting news and information." It is "distinguished from other activities and products by certain identifiable characteristics and practices," which "not only separate journalism from other forms of communication" but "make it indispensable to democratic societies. History reveals that the more democratic a society, the more news and information it tends to have."

From the first day of his campaign, Donald Trump has spoken disdainfully of all the chores that journalists are required to do. He forced news agencies out of his press conferences. For a period of six months he refused to hold a press conference.
With all of this, Mr. Patinkin harshly condemned the reporters at Trump's Jan. 11 press conference, one in which Trump insulted a reporter from CNN, and refused to take a question from him. Further, Mr. Trump allowed 250 reporters in the press conference room, but he also brought in a group of paid supporters to boo and cheer. So Mr. Patinkin may call these reporters a "mob," but the real evil here is everything Donald Trump has done and will do at the expense of journalistic freedom. No, the reporters were not a mob. Mr. Trump is a mob leader.
