Chinese Calm Response To Trump

It is now quite evident that America just elected a child who looks like a grown man but simply can not shake loose from childish behavior. After Trump tweeted some nonsense about the ‘stolen drone,’ a Chinese government representative calmly responded. “Trump is not behaving as a president who will become master of the White House in a month. But, if he treats China after assuming office in the same way as in his tweets, China will not exercise restraint.”

An editor of the Chinese Global Times was even more concise: “China should teach him some lessons so he might know to respect China after he is sworn in.” Ironically, the Chinese are the adult in the room, and the kid playing with his toys is named, Donald Trump!

Donald Continues Tweeting

The history of American presidents is the story of men who, at some point in their lives, became serious about being the leader of the United States of America, and, then there is Donald Trump. He continues performing as though he was auditioning for a role on Saturday Night Live. Instead of a calm and composed response to the Chinese seizure of a drone in the waters of the South China Sea, the Trump man just has to tweet something. “We should tell China that we don’t want the drone, they stole back–let em keep it.”

I assume this is a well considered idea that someone among his foreign policy advisors believed to make some sense. What is the point he was making? Tune in to the next Saturday Night Live show to discover the point that Trump was trying to make.

Revenge Death

It was just another art exhibition in Ankara, Turkey, many diplomates attended the event because it was just another public exhibition. Russian Ambassador Andrey Karlov was standing at the podium prepared to make the normal comments a diplomat utters at such boring events when a voice shouted: “Don’t Forget Aleppo” and raised his pistol and blasted away at the Russian envoy. The shooter was an off duty policeman named, Mevlut Allintas, just another Muslim angry at events in Syria which had resulted in the death of hundreds of thousands.

OH, he did utter some last words before being shot himself. “Only death will remove me from here. Everyone who has  taken part in this oppression will one day pay for it.” A noble statement, but Vladimir Putin will never pay for his bloody deeds of horror.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Take away the word, FANTASTIC, and Trump is speechless.

One day, one day, Donald Trump will actually explain how America will become a Great Nation again.

I wonder if anyone could actually make a critical remark about Trump without resulting in emails galore about it?

I await Alec Baldwin being appointed to the Cabinet to end his satirical remarks about the president elect.

I wonder what goes through the mind of Mitt Romney these days, did he escape from a horrible end by never being selected as Secretary of State?

I doubt if Donald understands the word HOPE means an expectation of sanity in the leadership of the nation?

I guess for Michelle Obama the situation today is HOPELESS.

In the old days in the wild west, gunmen checked their guns when they came to town, today, billionaires check their wallets when appointed to a government position.

Hacking -Democratic Plot?

Every so often our president  elect becomes upset at something that is a fact, but just does not fit into his perspective of reality. President Obama, the FBI, the CIA and god knows who else has provided  abundant evidence of Russian efforts during the past election to influence its outcome. Initially, Donald insisted there was a difference between the FBI and the CIA. When both came out in agreement, Donald wanted to know why President Obama had not openly stated the obvious, and somehow, that was evidence there was no hacking. A few weeks have passed, there is no longer any doubt about the hacking, and the response of Donald Trump is:

1. IF, there was hacking, it impacted both candidates.

2. If there was hacking, it never influenced the outcome because millions of votes     were stolen from him by illegal immigrants or blacks or browns or women or aliens who voted for Hillary.

3. Vladimir Putin is a great guy, a fantastic leader, who never would resort to illegal tactics, after all, he is dong a fantastic job as leader of Russia.

4. Democrats control state elections and they tried to make him lose.

5. There is overwhelming proof that Jose Hernandez voted illegally in the state Arizona.

And, so on and so on.

Donald Is Upset–As Always

Ordinarily a president of the US conveys his ideas by means of press conferences, discussions with members of Congress, or, even a TV broadcast, but these are the golden days of Donald Trump. A Chinese vessel in the South China sea area seized control of an underwater American drone that was gathering information concerning the ocean area, mainly, for economic purposes, not war. Naturally, Donald Trump had to tweet his ideas to the world. “China steals United States research drone in international waters–rips it out of water, and takes it to China, is unprecidented.”

Actually, Donald meant that it was unprecedented,but this is our new president, and spelling was never his greatest attribute in life.OH, the Chinese government already announced it would return the drone. We can assume Trump will take credit for what already occurred.

David Friedman, Trump Ambassador To Israel

Each passing day is another adventure into bizarre nominations of  white men who will shortly become the Cabinet of Donald Trump. His latest nomination is a man named David Friedman, and he will soon become the US Ambassador to the nation of Israel. He will be charged with working to ensure a peaceful resolution of the conflict between Israel and Palestinians. Mr. Friedman is an Orthodox Jew, whose speciality is in the area of bankruptcy. I gather he was quite busy working on the numerous bankruptcies of the Trump empire. These are his views:

1. He opposes creation of a nation of Palestine.

2. He does not like Muslims.

3. He financially supports conservative political parties in Israel.

4. He has absolutely NO knowledge of the Middle East, has never studied about the area, I guess, this lack of knowledge makes him a prime person to handle the Middle East and bring peace to the area.

Your Land Is My Land

Forty nine years ago, the Israel army defeated Jordanian troops and took possession of an area known as the West Bank. The United Nations in 1948 divided the then Mandate of Palestine into the state of Israel and a supposed state of Palestine. Jordan took possession of an area known as the West Bank, and after its defeat in 1967, Israel soldiers took control of the area. It was assumed that eventually, this area would become part of a state of Palestine.

Jewish settlers rushed into the West Bank claiming that God himself had promised this area to Jews. In an area known as Amona, Jewish settlers seize land owned by Palestinians and proclaimed the land belonged to them. The Geneva Convention states that “an occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” There are reports the Israel government of Prime Minister Netanyahu will incorporate this area of the West Bank into the nation of Israel. A clear violation of the Geneva Convention–which Israel agreed to honor.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

The Republican coup in North Carolina exemplifies the death of democracy in this nation.

Hate and anger are now normal in American politics.

Who would doubt that Donald Trump is capable of ruling by decree?

First time in American politics we elected a family rather than a person as our president.

I would love to hear the conversation between Trump and Putin when they finally meet.

How many Americans realized they voted for Putin as our next leader?

God should have provided a third hand to scratch the back.

I wonder how Trump will handle his first crisis as president, promise to make America a Great Nation Again?

We Americans have met the enemy and he is US.

Republicans Coup In North Carolina

The people of North Carolina elected Roy Cooper as their governor. Unlike the national election, this meant a majority actually would witness their favorite to become the elected leader of the stat. Republicans were furious,and decided that majority rule simply was not the American way of life. The North Carolina legislature called a special session and passed new laws that stripped the incoming governor of many of his powers to govern. The outgoing Republican governor worked with these politicians and new laws were passed.

There is something wrong with the Republican party, its leaders have ceased to believe in the concept of majority rule. America is truly now a divided nation, a majority  believes in the concept of democracy while Republicans seek to create  dictatorship.
