Edward Klein's All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump is a deep and disturbing analysis of the forces aligned against President Donald J. Trump, his policies, his family, and anything and anyone else connected with him. Robert A. Heinlein said that when a culture loses its manners, it's dead. What happens when a culture -- a whole country -- not only loses its manners but its mind? The term "Trump Derangement Syndrome" was created for the hysterical, vicious, vulgar, and dowright libelous attacks on President Trump and those around him, and it fits. Nothing like this has ever happened before in American history. The mainstream media allow the use of obscenities and other vulgarities whose public use would never have been allowed in the past -- but now they are commonplaces, at least when the subject of the conversation is Donald Trump. The Democrats go right along with it, and, along with the media, have been fanning the flames of public hysteria and animosity toward Trump -- and encouraging violent protest groups such as Antifa to run riot in this country, doing physical harm to others, killing one woman, and causing catastrophic damage to property.

How have we come to this pass? Edward Klein's analysis takes into account numbers factors, and also examines the history of both major political parties and how they have come to be what they are. He shows that while the Democrats are guilty of many bad things during the last 25 years, there are Republicans -- RINOS (Republicans In Name Only) -- that are at least as bad, if not worse.

We are in danger of losing our country. Edward Klein, the author of such books as The Kennedy Curse: Why Tragedy Has Haunted America's First Family For 150 Years and The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, shows how and why in this ominous warning of possible future developments.

Personally, I'd like to see Trump resign, and let Mike Pence take over. Trump will be eternally dogged as long as he is president, and we need a stable government now more than ever in these critical times. Pence would be free of any taint of scandal - real or contrived - and IMO he would be a much more effective Chief Executive, and head of the Republican Party, too. Plus, if Trump were to resign now, Pence could serve out the rest of Trump's term, then be elected to two terms in his own right, meaning he could potentially be in office for 10 years. With that length of time, he could replace most of the Supreme Court with an unassailable conservative majority for decades.

Trump did some good things, and I think most people know that deep down, but I also think people are weary of the seemingly eternal string of accusations that, true or not, hang around his neck like rotting albatrosses, and seriously reduce his effectiveness as president.

But of course, he won't resign, and this presidential reality show will keep going on and on ad nauseam. What this country really needs is stability, though, and we will never have that as long as Trump is in the White House.

Mike Pence would only be able to serve one further term, unless Trump waited until halfway through. The maximum is (just under) 2.5 terms.

But they're ready for a President Pence. The media has already declared him "insane" for talking to God ... and he's used exactly the same phrasing as Oprah Winfrey, but they ignore that.

They've already launched an attack on Pence's daughter. John Oliver has written a parody of the daughter's children's book about her rabbit, A Day in the Life of the Vice President. I understand that Oliver's parody features gay rabbit sex with apparent cameos by famous trans-gendered personalities. They're not done with Charlotte yet, and certainly not done with her father.

I like him, but President Pence would not have it easy.

President Trump is a mixed bag, doing good things and, well, weird and disappointing things. It is not his past that hinders him now, in my opinion, it is his very peculiar mixture of policy positions seemingly based upon the last person he's spoken to. He remembers his campaign soundbites, but seems unable to connect details of policies proposed to him to alignment with those soundbites, or not.

And he does not think through the consequences. I've not heard anyone else say this, but if his proposed DACA offer goes though, every illegal immigrant of conceivably the right age range (including expired visa holders) will simply "lose" their ID and come in as DACA. So he'll get six million of the 1.8 he's offered. His advisors are failing him, and more importantly failing us.

Let's hope for the best from President Trump ... and quickly, before the midterms.
