As the flim-flam man tries to figure out how to build our version of the Berlin Wall without undocumented labor, his obsession with self-aggrandizement continues unabated even to the point of setting the stage for the first Indian War since 1890. Wounded Knee, of course, was far more a U.S. Army massacre than it was a war, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers after extended analysis in the past month or so decided they had no interest in pressing that button again.

Not so this liar, crook, and fraud who occupies the White House and violates the central tenets of his position literally within minutes of his posting. Denied in 1890 by white men’s fear of any right to freedom of religious expression, they used Hotchkiss guns and Gatling guns to kill religious dissidents, then filled wagons with the frozen corpses and dumped them all in one big hole in the ground.

Trump’s consortium has a 13+% share of the North Dakota pipeline, and he is about to trample all over the rights of Native Americans for no other purpose than to make money for himself, which is not what we expect holders of this position to ever do.

What this dyslexic who does not read, but instead watches TV, fails to comprehend is that he is not merely contending with the Sioux at Standing Rock, but rather with tens of thousands of pissed-off Indians all over the West.

For money for the flim-flam man. There will be blood.
