Miller's Eyes and Trump's Hands
We met the new face of the Trump administration on all the Sunday talk shows last week. He’s the last man standing after the chaos created by the Executive Order on the Muslim ban. Who better to defend it than the man who wrote it? As the smoke died away and the curtains were pulled back, you see the man behind Trump’s unsubstantiated theories from Muslim killers, Mexican rapists, and four million illegal voters. Meet Trump’s new “real-ity” star and Senior White House Adviser, Stephen Miller.
Speaking about the travel ban, on Face The Nation, as he stared at us with dead eyes and an emotionless face, he told us in straight forward language, “The end result of this, though, is that our opponents, the media, and the whole world will soon see, as we begin to take further actions, that the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned.”
We owe the creation of Stephen Miller to former Senator, now Attorney General Jefferson Beuregard Sessions. Miller served on the staff of Senator Sessions for seven years and was known for his anti-immigration, anti-Mexican trade, pro-wall ideology. He and Steven Bannon are soul mates. He was a regular contributor to Steve Bannon’s Breitbart daily news show espousing his anti-immigrant views. Now, after appearance on the Sunday shows, he and Donald Trump are soul mates. In a tweet, Trump expressed how well Miller represented him. A star is born. Look out Bannon, look out Preibus, look out Kellyanne, and Mike Flynn. Somebody’s head is going to roll. There’s a new kid in town and he’s a “true believer.”
During the campaign, Miller became the teleprompter speechwriter for Trump. Now the two are so interconnected that we can’t tell Trump’s words from Miller’s words. However, we know that Miller and Trump share the same proclivity of bold claims without one shred of evidence. On ABC’s George Stephanopolous, when asked about Trump’s allegation to U. S. Senators that illegal voters were bused into New Hampshire and that’s why he lost, Miller repeated that claim and when pressed repeatedly, he said, “It’s a wide known fact that happens.” I guess it’s one of those things that exist without evidence. I find it strange that when it comes to climate change, the right exclaims there are no facts to support that claim. However, when it comes to buses full of thousands of people going to New Hampshire for the sole purpose of illegal voting, we should just take Miller and Trump’s word for it. I see, said the blind man.
As disturbing as I find Miller’s words and beliefs, what I can’t get out of my head is his EYES! You can’t rehearse that look. It’s the look of an emotional disconnect or depression. If you can identify a psychopath from a certain look, Miller has it.
I’m sure you’ll be seeing lots more of Trump’s new star. I just implore you to keep a cross in your pocket and avert your eyes.
Last week, Donald Trump continued on his quest of winning over any group or groups who may be openly hostile to his planned authoritarian form of government. First, he met with the military leaders and said all the things they wanted to hear. At the pep rally, he promised, “We’re going to rebuild the military and we will defeat those that don’t love our country.” He had them eating out of his hand. Another group conquered.
Next came the National Sheriff’s Association. He was very complimentary to them, as they were to him. When a sheriff complained about a State Senator in his state giving him a hard time about seizures and forfeitures, Trump wanted to know his name so he could destroy his career. The Sheriffs laughed, Trump did not. When Trump signaled his support of the seizures and forfeitures, he was scratching their back. Another group down.
One of the Sheriffs at the meeting Trump was so keen on impressing was our very own, Sheriff J. C. Bittick. I couldn’t help but notice the Sheriff’s close proximity to Trump in the meeting. I knew he could tell me the answer to the burning question, “Are his hands as small as everyone says?” I can’t repeat what he told me in confidence, but I’m sure if you asked him, he’d share his observation with you.
