Neilizms, is the political voice of artist, actor, and writer Neil Feigeles. After spending most of life quietly on the side watching the Powers That Be throw us practically in a ditch, as racism and greed have taken over the political world we live in. As I watch the rest of the world seemingly catching up to ours, I find it hard to believe ours is going backwards...

SO THE POWER PLAYERS IN WASHINGTON WENT ON VACATION, WHAT WERE YOU EXPECTING, SUNSHINE AND LOLLIPOPS?
Seems all Hell is breaking loose people, North Korea, nuclear war, Trump possibly outs himself as a Nazi, plus Steve Bannon walks! The lazy, hazy days of Summer, not in Trumpland!
TRUMP DECIDED HE EARNED HIMSELF A “WORKING” VACATION, I know I sure needed one from him! After what we’ve been through lately, and what we as a nation are seeing on an ever escalating chain of groan inducing unbelievably deplorable events, I’m pretty sure a lot of other people needed a respite too. Now pile those on top of all the previous episodes Trump has put us all though, and you can see why I’ve had trouble stomaching any of the lies the Trumpeters pathetically spin desperately trying to save what’s left of his sinking ship. As for all the other craven political players who sold the rest of us out for their own political, personal and financial gains, well lets just say there’s a special spot awaiting the lot of them in Hell or whatever the place is where the soulless spend the rest of their eternities.
I grew up watching movies where we get bombastic monsters in power and always had problems dealing with those over the top characters. Like the Prime Minister in V For Vendetta, I simply couldn’t believe arrogant fools like a Donald J. Trump as a political leader would ever exist in the real world. How could people be so dumb to vote them in? But look at what’s happened in Turkey, seemingly following in the footsteps of Russia, where citizens sadly voted to make their President their dictator. I can almost understand that happening in places where there were kings or tyrants, or at least maybe if this was a hundred years ago. But elected officials in the year 2017, I'm sorry, not in the United States of America! Right?
I guess I was or I am, seriously naive, but look at who our political leaders are. There’s a Paul Ryan or a Ted Cruz, a Newt Gingrich, and yes even a Donald John Trump and a Mike Pence amongst hundreds, thousands, who hold elected positions and seem to have the souls of Lucifer himself wedged deep inside their hearts. Peruse who we the citizens have voted into elected office and try not to gag as you scan the trolls running our Government. It is rather scary, sickening and outright unbelievable how many of them actually got elected in the first place. Or worse how they repeatedly get reelected time after time after time. No matter how many of their own crimes and despicable behavior is revealed. But if a George Walker Bush can get reelected after causing America’s longest war by attacking the wrong nation, why can’t a Donald J. Trump get his chance to destroy our nation too? I guess the sad truth is, some day there could actually be another president even worse than Donald J Trump. None of us thought anyone could top the second Bush President. Well, somebody did. In other words don’t worry Donald, someday someone might actually top your level of ineptitude. How scary is that? On the bright side, if we survived George Walker Bush for 8 long years, its feasible that we will even survive the presidency of a Donald John Trump.
So Trump decided that as President he had earned lots of free time, and sadly we’ve learned that that much free time on his hands isn’t such of a good idea. I mean how many rounds of golf can one man play? Obviously he's had way too much time on his hands, look at the ramifications. Perhaps, locking him up inside the White House where most of us haven’t a clue what he’s been doing for days. Except for what they tell us during the White House press briefings. I’m not a doctor, and yes I have played one on television, so its not like I can diagnose the man. But me thinks his spasms, those Twitter tantrums that last for hours, might be a signal that its time for his meds, or to possibly change his dosage. Maybe it’s even a cry for help and no one is listening to him. I mean obviously the man is in pain, just look at him. We should interview that wacky medical professional who claimed he was Trump’s personal physician. Better yet, maybe we should examine the doctor, because his opinions on the man sound as delusional as the man himself.
I originally began this post as a ‘what if’ scenario. About a week ago the big question in the land was what happens if Donald decides to fire Mueller during his time away? How crazy would it get? Remember the Congress was also on, as they call it Summer recess. So what happens? But in order for Trump to fire Mueller, since everyone of the talking heads kept saying that this would cause a congressional crisis, Donald needed a major distraction, to deflect the subject enough to get away with yet another monstrous act. So, what to do? Well her thought, he had one surely big enough to change the subject. In fact, possibly causing a nuclear war with North Korea. One day, out of left field, as Trump’s plane was travelling away from Washington DC, North Korea, now was capable of destroying us with Nukes.
So if you were President and your past was closing in on you fast, what better way to change the subject then to act like you were a twitch away from sending our nation into a nuclear war with an insane dictator! In the universe of distractions, I would think this would be near the top. That is if any of any of this bluster was real or just made up lies, remember those WMD’s. So we got a two nut jobs spatting tweets on social networks, sounding more like junior high school losers arguing over a computer game. Well it worked, all the talk of fire and fury changed the subject instantly from Mueller’s canning to nuclear war. Immediately my only question besides if any of this is true, was which nut job was gonna blink first? Or who is insane enough to, shall we call it drop the bomb and end humanity as we know it?
Luckily others in the know, have basically said to ignore whatever Trump has said on this subject of our destruction. As always, Donald handlers tell us it was a joke. A very sick and sarcastic laugh riot that is the explanation when ever one of his comments doesn't land the right way. We of course are the idiots to take a President at his word. Obviously the end hasn’t come, because I’m still writing this and now I’ve put it out there for the world to read. So I guess his talking heads were right, this time, the rush to war which seemed to begin in days has quickly quieted down. Seems Donald’s ‘red’ line with North Korea hasn’t broken yet, that is if he even has one.
Hillary Clinton surely said it best, “A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.” It pretty amazing how right she was, and so sad how many people refused to listen to her experienced knowledgeable intelligence, while believing Donald’s flat out lies. When Donald Trump came out and told us we might be in a nuclear war with North Korea, my worst fears were becoming real. We had elected a certifiable madman. After wards, when I had time to think about it, I discovered later on MSNBC, Trump had probably watched old Presidential videos before scaring the pants off half of the population. It appears Donald borrowed his little bombshell talking points on nuclear war from President Truman’s announcement on his dropping of the Atomic Bombs on Japan. On air they showed a side-by-side of both President’s speeches, and honestly I was stunned. I now want to know who showed the speech to the President. For some reason I doubt he ever learned about it in school. Perhaps, Steve Bannon before he was supposedly kicked out of the inner circle had offered his pal this bit of historical information?
Oh that right, lets add another event to the list, Steve Bannon has been pushed out of the inner circle, seems one of the biggest deplorable members of Trump’s basket was thrown out for making the President look bad. As usual with anything to do with Trump, as soon as the announcement rang out on the airwaves his deflection has seemed to do exactly what Trump intended. His error in words, siding with monstrous bigoted anti-Semites, had now been forgotten, lost in Bannon’s ouster. One of the reasons we were told that Bannon was still by Trump’s side was the fear factor. What would he do if he was kicked from the inner circle? What did this troll have on Donald Trump, that had him so close to the most powerful man on Earth that he seemed to be turning Donald into another Bannon before our very eyes? Had he put Donald under some kind of spell? Well Bannon resigned or was canned, either way according to the talking heads, the man already got his old job back at Breitbart. Perhaps this was the plan all along, to help the man get into office. But now that his needs can't be accomplished inside the inner circle, its time to ratchet it up a notch outside of it. I wouldn't be surprised if the two of them will still have non-stop communications coordinating events in Trumps agenda.
When Donald J. Trump promised to make America great again, who knew part of that stomp speech would have a ring of truth to it. But that greatness he promised to return our great country to wasn’t the one most of us were dreaming of. His America is more like the pre-Thirteenth Amendment era, when equality in the land was simply a dream for most people of color. A dream that one day a previous Republican President would finally sign off on, how sadly ironic is that. You want the white folk out there to get jobs, remove the people of color from the work force. Delete Muslims from our shores and return our states to the good old days when woman didn’t work, abortion was illegal, and the white man was in charge while the rest of society were simply second class citizens. As for the Jews, don't worry we have ways of getting rid of them too. But from what we’ve just witnessed, it turns out all the harbingers of racism that were slipping out throughout the Trump campaign and his years of racist attacks against former President Barack Obama are hitting the next level.
I keep wondering if the Trump voters will ever wake up and if so, what will it take? If not that disgusting Access Hollywood bus incident or a thousand and one lies, what does the man have to do or say to get run out of town? A possible treasonous duet with Putin seems to be a non-starter for them. Perhaps a nuclear war with North Korea or Venezuela or even Guam? Sadly if they actually wake up from their slumber, their awakening will occur while most of us turn into radiated heaps of ash from the fallout of the radiation. Hopefully the WMD North Korea scare that Donald is trying to use to deflect the public will be just that a scare. And now that fear of nuclear war seems to be subsiding a little, lets trout out an old familiar deflection to continue side-stepping impeachment talk. Lets try a little racism and anti-Semitism, but lets punch it up a bit and use the words that always make most people sit up and take notice. Lets bring into the mix, the trifecta of evil. The Nazi’s, the White Nationalists and the KKK, oh my. With that said, you now have got to wonder if what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia, will finally wake at least a few of them up. Seemingly it has, as today, a nation has erupted into protests against the same people who caused the riots in Charlottesville in the first place. A beautiful sight indeed. Much like the day after the election when the world woke up to the horrors of the reality of a Trump presidency. This protest goes against the President and those who on the side of hatred and bigotry, for trying to equalize Nazi's in the United States.
‘Not all Republicans are racists, but all racists are Republicans’ is an expression I’ve read lots of times online, in fact I’ve used it once or twice myself. So I guess Trump being a coming out of the closet racist or anti-Semite might not hurt him if that sentiment is prevalent with his followers as some think. But if the villains in the plot actually turn out to be Nazi’s for real, or members of the KKK, perhaps that will finally be a bridge too far for even Donald’s biggest defenders. This is of course nothing new in our nations history, but, now these racist monsters, aren’t afraid to show their faces. I mean the President of the United States sided with them, he didn’t call them out. It appears their belief and possible real feelings is that they’re the reasons Trump is in fact in the Oval office. That he needs to listen to them. That his being the President has given these monsters, the belief that they can proudly show their faces. So what happens when those working inside the White House decide its safe to reveal their truths. Will the public finally lose it? Or again will the bar be lowered that much lower, like all the other times Trump supposedly crossed the line few others had ever crossed, and none have survived?
It is ironic that out of all the talking heads out there David Duke probably put the president in this place more than anyone else did. When he smacked back at Trump for bending a little in his commentary against the racist monsters. Duke, the former KKK grand wizard, tweeted “I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists” and I practically spit out my hot tea. Hysterical, Duke, point blank called Trump out, that he was elected because of these Nazi, white supremacists. They according to Duke, put him in power. Remember Trump started his political life by going after President Barack Obama’s citizenship. Donald was the one who helped turn the Birther conspiracy into a national movement.
Watching Donald, day in and day out, it becomes more and more apparent that the man was either a terrible student, never did his homework or is seriously an idiot who is on the verge of a complete mental breakdown. What else can you presume when you listen to him prattle on about history or any other subject that he should have studied up in school. Listening to him go off on the removal of Confederate memorials throughout our nation is unbelievably nerve wracking. Of course if it’s true that he is a Nazi or a fan of the Confederacy, his inane argument how we were erasing history might make more sense. His comments about the heroes of the Confederacy is either his morality or possibly his intelligence. If you look at the spectrum of comments he’s made especially since becoming President, the policies and Executive Actions he’s executed, if they don’t make you go, yup the man’s a raging racist, you really need to stop watching Fox faux news. His belief system or is that his stupidity level is pretty similar on pretty much everything else you want too discuss. Listen to his backwards logic on ‘what next, we’ll start removing George Washington’s or Thomas Jefferson's...’, as if a Confederate Soldier, a traitor to our nation is equivalent to the men who were two of our greatest Presidents, is well infuriating.
Point blank Donald needs to crack open a book and learn something. Trump, that’s a real book not a crib sheet that one of your cult members read to you before you were tucked into bed. All that said, I would hope that his sudden welcoming of Nazi’s and Klansman is simply, his stupidity as opposed to his really being a racist monstrous Nazi. There are those who say, if Trump is using those people to get his way, that makes him a Nazi, even if he's just using the monsters for political gain and isn't really one. Of course in Donald’s case does it matter? Either he’s mentally damaged or he’s a coming out of a bunker in a full SS uniform. But yes it matters if our President is mentally deficient, a white hooded bigot, both or simply on the cusp of a brain hemorrhage. Any of these reasons are grounds to remove him. How scary is that that this is how we are discussing our President. Just imagine Trump is a Nazi, how nerve racking is that? Look what Adolph did with his weapons, look what Donald could do with our nations nuclear arsenal.
Of course with all that I’ve just written, again, this Nazi infatuation, this possibly White Supremacist hidden life, even the KKK sleep overs, could all be simply another Trumpian deflection. As with everything we’ve lived through in the past, as the truth of his and their crimes become more and more apparent, the deflections get more and more insane. We went from Mueller’s possible firing, to a nuclear spit ball spat with North Korea, Venezuela and even Guam. Now we’re onto Nazis and the KKK, in a single week! How sad, looking back at the attacks on Hillary Clinton, I almost long for them all now. How sweet, how innocent, compared to what we are dealing with now.
The Republicans warned us how terrible it would have been if she became President. How it would be non-stop hearings, impeachment talk and nothing would ever get done in Washington. So now that we’ve stepped into reality and not made-up fake news that Fox faux news helped spawn, how many of you out there would now give their own left arms to have the Republican attacks dogs still going after Hillary as before, just as long as the orange faced buffoon wasn’t now the President. So I end this as I began it, the President takes a vacation, what could go wrong? Hm, possibly everything!
