Millroy: Have I Gone Nuts

14

I never thought I would say this but I think I have gone nuts.

I can’t think of any other reason for the frightening thought that has been consuming my mind of late. I think I am missing Donald Trump.

I am not hollering at the television; I am not threatening to throw something, anything, at it. So what else could it be?

The former president of the United States has been banned from social media because of the venom he continued to spew, all of it designed to keep the nation divided.
I was all for it because, like millions of others, I thought he was dangerous.

But the silence it brought seems to be irritating me as much as the ridiculous falsehoods, such as the presidential election that Democrat Joe Biden won was fixed, did on a daily basis.

Trump spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference this past Sunday but I didn’t really care about hearing what he had to say there as I didn’t expect there would be anything new. He would be mainly reading from a teleprompter, rather than free-wheeling through a tweet where there was no filter for his lies.

But there was one takeaway. It is obvious he is not going away. It is now the Trump Party, rather than the Republican Party.

This obsessive fealty to one man rather than party is something that is hard to understand in a country I always thought was so similar to ours. However, I am sure that failure to understand is probably held by a great portion of the United States populace.

After all, Biden received about seven million more votes than Trump did in the election that Trump still claims he “won by a landslide.”

This hole that Trump has left in my life will undoubtedly be filled in over time; if it doesn’t I will indeed have gone nuts.

The reason I am so sure it will fill in is that there are so many American politicians willing to step in, sycophants who have as little moral fibre and regard for the truth as Trump.
Senator Ted Cruz immediately comes to mind.

Trump made fun of the looks of Cruz’s wife, Heidi, a woman whose moral standards, not looks, kept her from posing nude as Trump’s wife, Melania, had, and also alleged that his father may have been involved in the murder of former U.S. President Jack Kennedy.
Yet Cruz has fallen in right behind Trump, his head in a position that it leaves one wondering how he can breathe.

And if you had any doubts about Cruz you just have to look back a couple of weekends, to when he and his family took off for Cancun to escape the disastrous winter storm that had struck his home state of Texas, leaving many without power and therefore heat and water.
Cruz originally said he was just accompanying his daughters there and intended to return the following day, but then an email was leaked showing that the Cruz family intended to stay through the weekend.

Cruz did return the following day and changed his story, bringing it more in line with the truth, that he was intending to remain in Cancun through the weekend.
Cruz naturally took all kinds of flack because of what he did, fleeing from the cold of his home while his constituents were left to battle it out as best they could, some dying in the process.

Yeah, don’t you just see Ted as the kind of guy you want leading a country. Grammatically, I probably should have ended that sentence with a question mark but I thought you would get the sarcasm that was dripping from it.

I don’t think the Republicans have thought about it yet but the type of people they have eyeing a run for the presidency in 2024 is enough to make a reasonable person cringe.
Donald Trump, the failed president who also lost the House of Representatives and the Senate under his watch, leads the list because of his grip on the party and because of his grip on its base.

That is enough to frighten a lot of people right there.

But then there are those like Josh Hawley, who pumped his fist on Jan. 6 in support of those who shortly after invaded the Capitol, and Tom Cotton, who became notable during some Black Lives Matter protests for suggesting the military be brought in to restore order on the streets, an overwhelming show of force required to disperse, detain and ultimately deter lawbreakers.

He suggested this in an essay submitted to the New York Times. It made the digital edition but after a protest from staff, didn’t make the print edition.

I actually thought it should have.

In the eyes of many it was outrageous, but I didn’t think it was that far over the line that it should have been pulled. I thought the Times staffers who objected to the piece were out of line because Cotton was just exercising his right, as objectionable as his essay was, to free speech, something those who toil for the Times are always touting.

I thought it simply showed the American people who he was, someone who, if by chance he became president, would have no problem calling in the military to quell legitimate protests.

Anyway, I find myself wading into American politics here when I only intended to talk about the withdrawal twinges I have been having in the absence of Donald Trump.

I’ll get over it.

If I don’t, I’ll simply shoot myself.

Or at least destroy the tv remote.

  1. Trump is the best thing to happen to America in a long time. Put the hate aside and get your heads out of CNN CBC and the like and do some research. Bring to a halt the majority owned left wing media forming your opinion for you. It’s sad, and you’re all smarter than that, I think, I hope, yea you gotta be, prove yourselves that your smarter than the talking heads. Ron…..

  2. Can you imagine how our neighbours to the south think when they see what Justin Trudeau is doing to Canada .The economy iscth ed worst in the G7.He has wasted Billions on foreign countrys trying to bribe his way onto thex UN Security .Trudeau is all in on the UN one world Government and having the UN managing our immigration policies .Trudeau is Globalist ignoring our own people .Record high unemployment wants everyone to have a basic income turning this country into a another Venezuela .The Trudeau’s are admitted Comminists and has CCP human resources through out the country in key positions of power from Municipal to Federal .
    TRUDEAU supports WHO a CCP organization that is committed to CHINA along with its members .One Human resource member stood by WHO over her home country .That was in regards to Covid 19. .The Liberal Government is all part of the Great Reset and dont be fooled the Conservatives are involved as it was they who signed the secret 31 year deal with China .
    Canada has been sold out by our politicians and Elitist Oligards .The Enemie of Canada are amongst us and they are disarming us slowly.

  3. When you’ve had to watch your neighbour very carefully for four years because they were nuts and were extremely anti-social and did things that you really shouldn’t do to your neighbour and ally, it takes a bit of time to withdraw from that. It’s like constantly being bullied and all of a sudden it stops, you still look over your shoulder out of habit for a bit. I totally relate Doug.

  4. Let us be honest if any of you Liberals like Milroy Understand what that is.Under Trumps economic policies the lives of millions of forgotten men and women were strikingly improved.Record setting tax cuts,lucrative trade deals, energy independence that they never dreamed of ,regulatory reforms,a boom in manufacturing ,prison reform,national security succeeses and cofirmation of scores of conservative judges including two Supreme Court justices,The best unemployment numbers in fifty years and an economy that was booming and breaking records like never before. ,millions of people being moved off food stamps and out of poverty.
    There was election fraud and the Courts refused to listen to the evidence.Democrats call it the Big Lie ,eventually the truth of what really happened will come out .Where are all these so called Biden supporters? All we hear are crickets.
    OVER a month has past and and 56 executive orders have been passed!
    The Biden Administration has done this.

    Killed a 100,000 jobs 3 Billion in lost wages.
    400,000 jobs lost joining Paris Accords
    1,000,000 jobs lost with oil and gas leasing moratoriam on Federal land .
    Potentially 3 million jobs lost by 2024 with 15 dollar minimum wage.
    ELIMINATED Women’s Sports
    Invaded Syria
    Admitted he doesn’t have a plan to fight COVID-19 .He lied and is now taking credit for President Trumps plan and the vaccine.

    USA has there own Version of Justin Trudeau on steriods .

  5. Oh ya that guy, the pathological liar delusional narcissist who has not yet been placed in a secure facility for the criminally insane. Don’t worry it won’t be long. They have dozens of criminal charges to indict him on for racketeering, tax evasion, paying off hookers, etc..
    Anyone that thinks he is in any way normal or did a good job as president is also delusional.

  6. Donald J. Trump is the BEST President that the U.S. has ever elected. I do hope that he will take the House and the Senate in 2022 and become President in 2024! Dementia Joe doesn’t even know what he is doing or even where he is. He is a Puppet for Pelosi, Schumer, Obama, the Clintons and many more Corrupt, Evil Democrats. The World watched all the Shenanigans on Election Night! The Republicans had sworn affidavits from thousands of people who wanted to testify as to what they witnessed with all the Cheating by the Democrats and Dominion Machines. Why doesn’t Dominion want their machines investigated and scrutinized? Why don’t the Corrupt Politicians in States who know that the Republicans took their States want their ballots scrutinized? They have all been paid by the Corrupt Democrats, and since the Republicans wouldn’t even think of Cheating and Stealing an Election, Republicans and all Honest, Ethical People Worldwide would never have imagined the extent of the Cheating. The U.S. 2020 Presidential Election was Definitely a STEAL! Anyone who denies this fact is in Denial or doesn’t have a functioning brain! No wonder Sleepy Joe stayed in his basement and never held a Rally like President Trump whose rallies were in the thousands of Americans. No, Sleepy Joe and the Corrupt Democrats knew that they had worked hard for years to Steal the Election. Doug Milroy should be ashamed of smearing and vilifying President Trump! Doug Milroy says that he may shoot himself if he continues having withdrawal twinges in the absence of President Trump. Doug, I say that your withdrawal twinges will go away, because President Trump isn’t going away! He will be BACK, Thank God!!

  7. You dear sir, need to do your own investigations, instead of just going with orange man bad. Trump was for the people, real Americans, he was for jobs, energy,equality, Biden in one month has proven he is anti jobs, anti energy,anti women! Trump has never needed a teleprompter unlike Biden who cant put ten words together even if they are written down…his wife will finish his sentences for him!!!! Trump kept sanity in an insane world, the riots …I mean peaceful protests as Democrats call it, is an example, and dont get me started on election fraud which was rampant in the election whether you want to believe it or not!!!!! And let me know how his green energy plan plays out…..or you can ask Texans for that matter!!!!! And as for the border wall……illegal immigrants who now come in will get treated better than Americans… who dont have dental,medical coverage…..just like turdeau has done to Canada!!!!

  8. You don’t have to like Trump to recognize the truth of much of what he says. He calls out the loss of freedom of speech for all people who do not buy into socialism, the rise of cancel culture, the removal of borders and demonstrably fair elections, and the growing dependence of people on government for their living instead of earning it themselves. These are topics that need free and open debate, which is shunned by the new administration. The new US president holds no regular press conferences, and does not entertain questions from the media (even his press secretary will now only look at pre-screened questions, which is unbelievable). He operates by executive order, bypassing Congress. Because of freedom of speech, Mr. Millroy is free to criticize who he wants with impunity – I might not agree with his views, but he must be free to speak it. So why deny that right to citizens to protest peacefully (which is what the great majority did on Jan. 6) and vote their conscience. Why belittle people who do not agree with you… instead engage them in thoughtful respectful debate.

  9. You lost me at “legitimate protests.” Legitimate cause maybe, but when you set fire to buildings, intimidate people and police and create lawless zones, you’re not protesting, you’re rioting.

    Here I was expecting a nuanced article about how Biden while better in many ways is worse in others… instead I get a TDS article…

  10. Why arr Canadians so fixed on the evils of Trump when we have a PM with the highest number of ethics investigations and violations in history.
    We were talking about Trump when we should have been demanding Trudeau get parliament back in session when it was needed the most. We ignored the abuse of power when Trudeau misused orders in council.
    We’re ignoring the massive WE scandal that Trudeau effectively shut the investigation down on.
    We ignored Trudeau muzzling scientists, cabinet members, etc etc at levels that even exceeded the control freak PM Harper.
    By all means, keep spewing on about Trump while Canada burns.

  11. Disturbing how people can so quickly fall in step behind a leader simply because of words in promises despite being an arrogant, divisive, ineffective, unethical & corrupt leader.
    But enough about Canada, back to the topic of Trump.

  12. I don’t know about 2024, but I pray that the GOP takes back the house and the Senate in 2022. The far left wing socialist arm of the Democrats is in charge and are poised to be quite extremist. You will likely not read much about that on MSM. You may call Trump many names, some of which are probably deserved, but some of his policies protected American interests, rather than let American needs and freedoms fly out the window. Time will tell how this Democrat administration plays out over the next couple of years…whoever is really in charge of it. When I see Joe Biden’s wife finishing his sentences and offering elaborative statements to the press on her husband’s behalf, I become uneasy.

  13. The entire world needs to stop talking about Donald Trump. I for one am thankful we do not have to listen to his nonsense on a daily basis. I will never understand why Republicans feel threatened by TRUMP and fall in line like sheep behind him.
    It is scary to think, Doug, that YOU are missing Trump. Trump is the laughing stock of the rest of the world and the less attention we give him…the better.
    On another note…Trump is facing many days in the courts and surely at least one charge will stick and prevent him from ever running for President again.
