NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

These days single Jewish men are seeking to marry a Trump girl so they can become Secretary of State.

Boeing has a 50 billion contract to build planes for Iran, oh well, France has promised to do the building after Donald cancels the contract.

Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway says Trump supporters feel ‘betrayed’ by Donald talking with Romney about a Cabinet position. Wonder why?

Rudy Giuliani admits to giving speeches to Qatar businessmen, the same ones who gave money  to Osama bin Laden.

Whatever happened to Chris Christie, is he still alive?

Ben Carson may not accept a Cabinet position until someone explains to him what is this thing called–CABINET.

I have a hunch that Senator Rand Paul is the only Republican who will not be bought off by Donald Trump.

Donald Is SHOCKED

As Americans know, during the  past election campaign, unlike his angry Democrat opponent, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump conducted a campaign based upon respect for the Constitution and rejected her refusal to agree that if she lost, there would not be a challenge to his victory. This is a fact. How many times did Hillary shout “the election is rigged!” Well, the expected happened, Jill Stein, and the Clinton campaign are asking for recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania!

Donald  Trump is absolutely shocked. ‘This is horrifying. This is not the way our democracy works. Been around 240 years. We’ve have free and fair elections. We’ve accepted the outcome however when we may not have liked them, and that is what must be accepted by everyone. I am appalled that someone who is the nominee of one of our major parties would not accept it.”

Thank God there was ONE candidate who constantly promised to accept the outcome!

France Has Its Trump

It is now clear that Donald Trump is NOT an American phenomenon, but just one of many such leaders who are seizing power throughout Europe. Poland has a right wing government that even is attacking abortion rights as well as attacking human rights. Hungary has Prime Minister Orban who has made his career out of attacking immigrants as ‘destroying the nation of Hungary with their Islamic values.” Right wing Trumpites are gaining  power in Germany, in Austria, in Germany, and now soon in France.

France has had the Popular Front led by Marine Le Pen who for years has blamed all problems on Muslim immigrants. Now, Francois Fillon has emerged as another right wing Trumpite who promises to make France great again by getting rid of Muslim immigrants. He termed the Muslim religion and its “radicalism as having no place here.” He is also against gay marriage and against abortion. Once again a leader who will make France Great Again by appealing to hate and violence. There is a strong probability he will this spring become President of France!

France Has Its Trump

Fidel Finally Died

I recall in January, 1959 sitting with a group of University of California students as we watched Fidel Castro drive out the hated dictator, Batista, and hopefully bring democracy to the people of Cuba. He came across as a modern Robin Hood who was going to bring peace and prosperity to Cubans. Alas, that was the dream, and the reality was different. He  preached for a new world in which the under class  finally was able to share the riches of society. He promised to end dictatorship and replace it with a democracy.

The years passed, and Fidel became much of what he had overthrown. Yes,  he did bring education to all, yes, he did bring excellent medical care to all. BUT, his economics changed Cuba from a  nation in which the top five percent lived in comfort to a nation in which ALL(except for government bureaucrats) lived a life without comforts. He never was able to create a Communist economy that resulted in high standard of living for all. His promise of ‘democracy’ was transformed into a dictatorship in which those who disagreed did so in prison.

Yes, many Cubans will feel sad that the only ruler they had known for fifty years is now dead. It is up to his brother, Raul, to return to the  original promise of a democracy and a dynamic economy that brings a good life to ALL CUBANS.

The Obama Legacy

Barack Obama will be leaving the presidency within two months, so how do historians grade his presidency?

1. He inherited an economy that was losing 800,000 jobs a month. As he departs, the economy is gaining at least 200,00 jobs a month. He definitely handled the unemployment problem he inherited.

2. He ended US involvement in Iraq, and transformed sending thousands to fight there with a new approach. We now ‘lead from behind’ using Special Forces and ensuring those from the Middle East deal with ISIS and al Qaeda.

3. He witnessed granting of rights to gays and lesbians, and that will endure.

4. He witnessed granting of rights to transgender people and that will endure.

5. During his watch fewer than 200 Americans died within the confines of the United States.

6. Crime rates continued to decline to the lowest level in decades, despite the occasional killings that are confined to a dozen or so cities.

7. He led millions of Americans to accept the concept of a black president as being normal.

8. He reduced the yearly government deficit, although he was unable to wipeout out.

9. He protected Medicare and Social Security from Republican efforts to make them disappear as government programs.

10. He protected Hispanics from much worse goals of Republicans.

Trump Folks Ain’t Happy

During the recent campaign, Donald Trump promised over and  over again how he would make America Great Again. As you recall, he assured all Trump supporters of :

1. I will  build a Wall, a Great Wall, the greatest wall since the wall of China. Today: Would you believe a FENCE? Oh, it will be the greatest fence, the longest fence, and, just maybe, a wall some place along the route of the fence.

2. I’m going to ‘lock her up,’ lock her up, send her to prison! Today: OK, she got two million more votes than me, would you believe, NOT lock her up!

3. Mitt Romney is a guy who is a loser, a real loser, he belongs to the establishment. Today: Mitt is a wonderful man, a real great guy, there must be some place in my Cabinet for an outstanding guy like him.

4. First day, “I’m going to veto Obamacare, the very first day.” Today, there are a few things I like about Obamacare, so maybe, I will not veto it on the first day.

5. I am going to deport All illegal immigrants, the first day, it begins. Today, OK, so maybe we just can’t get rid of eleven million people, they do handle a few million tasks here in America.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

So, Clinton ‘won’ by two million and ‘lost.’ Only in America!

Trump qualifications for serving in Cabinet, know NOTHING.

A ‘doctor’ will head housing and our infrastructure even though he only knows the infrastructure of a human BODY.

I so await a year from now when NO new jobs come back from China.

I assume Sanders supporters must feel happy, their worse nightmare came true!

So, does Ivanka become our new Chief of the Joint Staffs, she does know what a Joint is?

I guess Vladimir Putin smiles knowing he ELECTED the new American president!

 

The White Myth

There are dozens of groups which supported Donald Trump which boast that  he is restoring power to those of the white race. They believe people of darker skins seek to take over power and end the dominance of those who are ‘white.’ The construct of a ‘white race’ simply does not exist anymore than the construct of a ‘blue eyed race.’ In the nineteenth century, the newly arrived Irish were regarded as people who were ‘black’ and not like the Anglo Saxon Protestants who then dominated America. Italians who began arriving late in the nineteenth and then in the twentieth century were told by fellow Catholics, the Irish, they were “dark skinned people’ and not like NOW, the white skinned Irish.

Jews came at the turn of the twentieth century only to be met with hatred and anger for being people of a dark and sinister race. Opponents of these immigrants insisted they could never assimilate within  ‘white society’ because they had a different religion, ate different foods, dressed differently, spoke Yiddish, and simply could never become integrated within ‘white society.’ The story is always the same, new immigrants are DIFFERENT. Ironically, Hispanics were here before the British arrived in the 1600s. And, Spanish regarded themselves as superior to native born peoples.

Being white is always changing. But, today, the former ‘dark skinned Jews and Irish’ now insist they are WHITE!

Why Hillary Clinton Lost!

Each passing day it becomes clearer and clearer why Hillary Clinton  failed to win this presidential election. Actually, she did gain two million MORE votes than gained by Donald Trump, but she allowed this idiot to gain victory in the electoral college. So, why?

1. Hillary Clinton simply placed the votes of white men and women on the ‘they will vote for me because I am a Democrat’ column.

2.  At each debate Donald Trump boasted and claimed he would make ‘America Great Again’ by bringing back jobs. Each time he made these ludicrous promises, the Clinton response was to discuss his groping of women. She NEVER presented evidence that proved his promises were impossible to keep.

3. Hillary Clinton never discussed the impact of technology on work in modern America.

4. Hillary Clinton never proposed specific laws that could assist those losing their jobs to technology such as retraining for new careers.

5. Hillary Clinton played to  women and black and Hispanics based on their race and ethnicity rather than on how her victory benefited them economically!

6. Sorry, expressions such as ‘Black Lives Matter’ were divisive, they never made poor white people jump with joy. Clinton would have sent a more powerful message by saying: ‘All lives matter, and as president, my task is working to ensure that ALL Americans get high paying jobs.’

7, Trump  lied and lied about our economy and Hillary Clinton and they never were refuted leading many Americans to actually believe he could achieve these nonsensical promises! Simply, put, Hillary Clinton lacked a five point economic program to ensure jobs!
