As the arrest of Jacob Zuma as South African President created riotous looting by its confusingly beleaguered citizens, one need not wonder WHY as the examples set for honest effective government by its first Black President Nelson Mandela and the moral leadership opined by Bishop Desmond Tutu were blatantly ignored.

WHY? Simple: Arrogant, blatant corruption at the top!

Does ex-President Trump deserve jail time? What would that precipitate here? I don’t know, but firsthand accounts by credible reporters of his aberrant, corrupt, treasonous behavior should not be ignored.

This Trump behavior echoes now here at home as we watch the GOP’s top leaders kiss Trump’s ring, fail to agree to empower a Presidential Commission on the January 6th insurrection and fail to stop GOP controlled state legislatures from enacting voting laws designed to inhibit minority voting.

The old aphorism “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” certainly applies here after the biggest turnout, most secure Presidential election in our history.

Meantime, whipping up white voter resentment from his nightly FOX perch is Tucker Carlson, the late Russ Limbaugh’s successor.

You can read here how Carlson got there from the page one July 15th Washington Post article by Michael Kranish.
