    Trump’s Grandstand Distraction Plan to Nuke North Korea

    This is not a joke. We have been peace activists since the days of the Cold War. The current heavily conflicted international scene terrifies us what with 20,000 nukes floating around and only a bare fraction of them needed to kill off the whole lot of us. Together Christians, Muslims, atheists, Hindus, Buddhists and communists will be roasted to death or slow bake microwaved over 60 days of agonizing radiation sickness, that horror avoided only by drinking the Cool Aid, a fun sight to watch when all the children and grandkids of the world are murdered in this way.

    We are a PhD scientist and a protective mother of five including a Eurasian daughter adopted when I was a Lutheran missionary in my younger days. The title of this email suggesting that Trump will foolishly light the fuse to all out nuclear war with a preemptive strike on equally nutcase Kim Jong Un is not a fairy tale but a real possibility given Trump’s crafty callousness and our mathematical understanding of the violent emotions that drive people like Trump to do what they do.

    What we wanted from Trump was change for the better – I voted and actively campaigned for him. What we got from Sir Satan von Drumpf, though, was a dictatorial predator shrewd enough not to advertise his intentions beforehand. Read our math-based argument calling for his removal from the presidency he stole with Putin’s help in this rigged election on And visit our math heavy website,, posted last July when imprudent hopes lead to our initially supporting him.
