MYSTERY STORY – 2020 Continuing

Published September 25, 2020 by Nan Mykel

Plans were for this true tale to appear weekly, but the plot is unfolding so rapidly that this early chapter is necessitated. Reminder: The story will end Nov. 3 or later, in 2021, either as an adventure tale, a tragedy or an epitaph.

On this early autumn day of wildfires, pandemic, senate stonewalling, Barr pouting that congress was rude and interrupted him, it appears the president is getting bolder and bolder in his allegiance to authoritarian disdain for democracy. Meanwhile, every administrative puddle is being piddled in.

Our president refuses to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if Biden wins, and threatens to override the FDA concerning early release of the vaccine.

Educational decisions; states’ rights abuses; freedom of speech attacks; “selling” leadership positions (as in the post office); failure to support our troops by denigrating them and failure to admit or oppose Putin’s paying for the scalps of American soldiers through bounties; political misuse of Trump’s pardoning power; sexual assault; misrepresenting facts (otherwise known as “lying,”); giving the military a portion of the coronavirus funds authorized for economic relief; championing white supremacy; fueling confrontations between segments of American citizens; putting and keeping children in cages; wanting protesters to be charged with insurrection; so pathetically immune to the truth that he gives himself an A or A+ on his handling of the corona virus plague which has already taken the lives of more than 200,000 Americans; and canceling funds for racial tolerance training, saying it is “Un-American.”…..

The days are ticking by until the denouement — 39 days to go if my math is correct. “We’ll put them down very quickly,” he said of any protesters (whom he calls rioters) on election day.

I’d really like to see a survey of why some Americans actually want to vote for Trump–not lying, but telling the truth, if they know it. . NEXT CHAPTER: What if the election is close and contested?

  • Nan, we have a pandemic, yet most of the time the president spends is telling us what great job, an A+ job he has done with it. We have civil unrest and instead of calming folks and being statesmanlike, he is walking around with a gasoline can.

    As for his attacks on the voting process, quite simply he is trailing in the polls. And, given his history, he will lie, cheat and bully to win. Per Bob Woodward, Trump would rather destroy our democracy than admit he lost.

    Again, we must remember the narcissist defense mechanism of “projection,” meaning project your faults onto others to lessen scrutiny on yours. When he says there is cheating, it means he is cheating. Take it to the bank.
