In the Movie: Hunt For Red October, Richard Jordan’s Character NSA director Jeffrey Pelt stated to Jack Ryan: “Listen, I’m a politician which means I’m a cheat and a liar, and when I’m not kissing babies I’m stealing their lollipops. But it also means I keep my options open”. This sums up our own political system at this time or possibly for a long time before now, except this administration keeps no options open. While there will always be some subterfuge and unspoken information from the government (from local to Federal) and I believe most us understand that, whether we like it or not. The above quote seems more resonant now and probably has been the case for the last 20 years, the difference now is that media coverage has put the lies out faster than ever. This being the situation, isn’t it on the shoulders of the citizens to examine the various outlets to garner the truth rather follow one line of thought with impunity and be terribly misinformed? We now have the Resident who has what appears to be a revolving door on the oval office. This “swap out” of personnel  seems to be a quest for the perfect set of folks who will agree with the Resident no matter what he says or does. This is not how Government is run. Our majority Congress appears to be afraid to stand against the obvious actions that could bring us to the brink of war and isolation. Meanwhile the major source for the Resident’s information (Faux News) has become his go to for White House advisors. The Extreme conservative contributors of the same News system are now espousing a trend toward impeachment for the President. This indicates that the extremists on the right are not happy and it begs to wonder  how it will affect the actions of the already volatile Residents actions. This could very well prove to be a watershed years for this administration with the revolving door method of staffing. The world is watching that includes allies and enemies alike while we wait for the other shoe to drop.
