NEVER AGAIN MEANS, NEVER AGAIN

Anyone familiar withe the infamous Holocaust knows  what the expression, NEVER AGAIN means. The words originally meant that never again would Jews be subjected to brutality and murder. Over the years the expression has come to mean, NEVER AGAIN would ANY group of people be murdered while the world stood by idly never lifting a hand to halt the slaughter of the innocent. Today in Aleppo, thousands are being murdered, no, not killed, MURDERED. The world media reports scenes of these deaths,and people utter words of sorrow, but no government has taken steps to aid the  people of Aleppo who are being murdered.

The Jerusalem Post has asked the Israel government to offer refuge to some of those fleeing Aleppo. Such action would ensure the expression, NEVER AGAIN, lived on in the 21st century. Of all the nations in the world which MUST offer refuge to the people of Aleppo,it logically is the state of Israel. Unfortunately, with the arrival of Donald Trump,the expression, NEVER AGAIN means, Never Again will wealthy people have to pay taxes on their wealth.

We offer observations on the human condition from a 26 year old mind trapped in an 86 year old  body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

So, did Donald  want Mitt to get on his knees and apologize?

I still am confused why Ben Carson  did not become Secretary of State, he knew how to separate twins joined at birth, so which problem  could he fail to solve?

I wonder what Rudy Giuliani is shouting about these days?

The Holocaust expression, Never Again, is now, AGAIN.

Trump has made America Great Again by being Silent Again when people are murdered.

Illegal immigrants murder ONE person while native born Americans have murdered 660 here in Chicago, so who is the problem?

Fascinating how Lindsay Graham has become the moral voice of Republicans, he wants the truth about  Russian hacking.

President Détente Of Philippines In Action

The people of the Philippines have President Duterte, and we have Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani. Duterte was mayor of the city of  Davao prior to becoming a president. While a mayor he gained a reputation of urging the killing of anyone connected with drugs, users as well as sellers. He gained fame for his efforts to wipe out the drug dealers and users. As he put it: “In Davo, I used got do it personally just to  show the guys(police officers) that I could do it. I was really seeking a confrontation so I could kill. ”

President Détente believes if a leader kills bad guys it sends a signal to police that if they murder someone, just say it was a “bad guy.” At least 3,000  people have been murdered–not killed–murdered. Fortunately, for we Americans, Donald Trump is a coward. The  only thing he can murder is the English language.

Death In The Driveway

Yesterday, we reported on the death of 72 year old Francisco Serna who was shot to death by  police in Kern County, California. Further information has been provided on the shooting.  Mr. Serna suffered from early stages of dementia, and was accustomed to taking walks early in the morning, before most people were awake. A neighbor noticed him standing in her driveway,  and walked over to talk with him. She was upset because Mr. Serna continued to place his hand in his pocket. She thought she saw a gun, and called the police.

It turned out thing in his pocket was a dark colored wooden crucifix.  Police arrived at the scene of the “crime’ with guns drawn. There is no evidence anyone talked with Mr. Serna, no evidence anyone checked with his family, whose house was next door, no evidence of any police negotiator to resolve the situation.  The police blasted away and sent nine bullets into his body.

There is something rotten in the police forces of Kern County.

Rex Tillerson, Boy Wonder

Each day brings new information regarding the activities of Rex Tillerson, the man Donald Trump would like to conduct foreign policy for the United States. He is the first to admit that his company has negotiated numerous business deals with Russian government companies. If sanctions against Russia could be lifted, then ExxonMobil will gain access to billion of dollars worth of oil in Russia, and the Russian government will obtain billions from investments in ExxonMobil. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has a one Republican majority. Senator Marco Rubio has expressed his reservations about the Exxon CEO.

“I have serious concerns about this nomination. The next Secretary of State must be one who views the world with moral clarity, is free of conflict of interests, and has a clear sense of America’s interests.” That certainly does not appear to be the qualities of the Exxon CEO. Oh, when Exxon purchased Mobil, it ended policies that recognized gay and lesbian marriage and company policy to prevent sexual discrimination.

Polish Trumpians

There is increasing evidence that the Trump phenomenon is sweeping the world. In France, Marine Le Pen, heads a political party that wants to make France great again, and right wing anti-Muslim fanatics are gaining ground in Germany, and already  control Hungary. Poland for decades was led by political leaders seeking to create a modern democracy. But, Jaroslaww Kaczynski of the Justice Party wants to make Poland great again, by going backward in time.Since becoming president last year, he has instituted control over public TV and radio stations to ensure they  present the “truth”–as he defines it. Cultural groups such as theater of museums or art galleries only receive funding if they offer traditional pieces reflecting Poland’s cultural heritage. That means, furthering the Catholic church, opposing abortions, and, naturally, hating Muslims.

Ironically, the Justice party hates the European Union even though Poland has received $64 billion during the past five years to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure. As always, workers vote to support these right wing parties even though the end result is worse conditions for workers.

Who Next To Destroy US Government

One must admit that Donald Trump does have a unique approach in deciding who should be in his Cabinet. Historically, presidents selected individuals who have  SOME knowledge of the Department they would head, but, leave in to Donald to create a new approach to who should lead a government department.

Ben Carson, former surgeon, now heads Housing and Development, about which his only experience is that he once lived in public housing.

Andrew Ruzder, a CEO of Hardee;s now heads the Labor Department, and insists that more raises in minimum wages  would destroy the economy.

Back in 2012 when Rick Perry sought the nomination for president, he made a famous speech that dealt with Cabinet positions. “It’s three agencies of government when I get there are gone: Commerce, Education, and the um, what’s the name of the third, the third. Let’s see. I can’t think, third, I can’t,  sorry.” Well, Rick, now you can think of it because you are the new Secretary of Energy. So, will you get yourself out of a job?

Oh, and Scott Pruit, the head of the EPA does not believe in climate change.

What next–Secretary of the Interior goes to a house designer, isn’t that what the Interior Department handles?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Perhaps Donald should play with his toy soldiers instead of fooling around with China policy.

Will anyone at HUD know that Ben Carson runs it? If so, how?

Gee, I even feel sorry for loud  mouth betrayed Rudy  Giuliani, he will not have a chance to save America, again.

I suspect one has to provide evidence of possessing a billion dollars to get appointed to the Cabinet.

Rick Perry handling Energy is akin to having Ben Carson handling it.

I would so enjoy listening to the Bush family discuss Donald Trump.

Difficult choice for me: either hating the Dallas Cowboys or Donald Trump, which is a more intense hatred?

China Wants Respect

A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson made clear his government does not regard Donald Trump’s out reach to Taiwan as other than an insult. “I want to stress that Taiwan has a bearing  on China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. Adhering to the ‘one China’ principle    is the political bedrock for the development  of US-China relations. If it is compromised or disrespected, the steady growth of the bilateral relationship and cooperation in major fields would be out of question.”

He concluded with a comment regarding president-elect, Donald Trump: ‘he is a child ignorant of foreign policy.”

Un Pleasant Facts For Trump

We inhabit an age in which most Americans rely upon lies, false stories and information that has no connection to reality. So, how about some FACTS:

1. US merchandise trade deficit % of GDP has fallen from: half of one percent in 1945 to one percent when George Bush became president in 2001 to 2% when George Bush  left office, AND it remained at 2% during the entire Obama term of office. Question: why no questions about  trade deficits while Bush was president?

2. In 2015, General Motors in China sold 372,000 cars in November while selling 253,000 cars in America.

3. Boeing has orders for planes in China over the next twenty years that constitute $500 BILLION.

4. China accounted for 60% of America’s soybean exports between 2003-2015.

5. Iran just signed an  agreement to purchase billions of dollars worth of Boeing airplanes.

6. The Peterson Institute estimates a tariff war with Mexico and China would result in the loss of 4.8 million American jobs.

7. At least one third of  parts going into “American” produced cars come from Mexico. Raise tariffs on goods from Mexico means raising prices on US made cars.
