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.

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

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.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder if there is a single topic that Trump would admit to not knowing about.

The new Trump administration is definitely a –family affair.

I still wonder which Cabinet position is set aside for his 12 year old grandson.

New name for the US Cabinet: The Billionaires Club?

Most Americans voted for the other gal, but the other guy won the election.

One must admit there is always something new from Donald Trump.

I wonder what the Bush family thinks these days about the Republican  party?

Let’s Have A War

Donald Trump insists that HE knows more about any topic in foreign policy because he is a ‘smart man.’ He was warned not to interfere with American policy toward China which for fifty years has been based upon the concept of One China. This means, the US accepts the idea that Taiwan is essentially part of China, and in return, China allows the  people of Taiwan to have an independent government free from Chinese control. Trump issued a statement that he would not recognize this agreement.

In return, the government  of China is pointing out to the idiot  Trump there are consequences to upsetting policy that has been around for half a century. The Chinese Global Times made clear: “The Chinese mainland should display its resolution to recover Taiwan by force.” If Taiwan were to declare its independence, “the Chinese mainland can in  no time punish them, militarily.” In other words, there is now the prospect of war. It is time for Donald Trump to just SHUT  UP.

Off To Court With Donald

Prior to the arrival of Donald Trump as a president, the ordinary rule was the president-elect would devote his time and energy to learning about issues confronting the nation from experts. But, this is the era of Donald Trump, who believes the main necessity of a new president is to go to court and deal with law suits. DC Superior Judge Jennifer Di Toro has ordered Donald Trump to appear for a seven hour deposition regarding his law suit against Jose Andres who he claims did not carry out an agreement to build a restaurant in the new Trump hotel in Washington D.C,

Mr. Andres refused to pursue the restaurant because he was furious at Trump attacks on Mexicans. Trump insists that he has more important things to do than be in a  court room. Alas, Judge Jennifer says, you began the law suit, then  you come to court.

So, Who Did Not Become Secretary of State?

It is now clear that Rex Tillerson will be the person nominated by Donald Trump to become the next Secretary of State. But, who will NOT become the Secretary of State?

1. Chris Christie, he was late shining the shoes of Donald Trump, and he brought cold hamburgers.

2. Rudy Giuliani thought he had saved America when Donald Trump knows he was the one who saved this nation from Islamic terrorists.

3. Newt Gingrich suffered from the fact that he had read books and taught courses in American history while a college teacher.

4. Jeb Bush was a Bush, enough said.

5.  Ben Carson would get lost if he wandered into the State Department, and no one would ever know what happened to him.

6.Carly Fiorina speaks as though she knows something, not the best qualification for being a member of his Cabinet.

7. OK, Sarah Palin can see Russia from her kitchen window, but, she has never invested money in any Russian enterprise.

8. Sorry, Ted Cruz your dad tried to kill President Kennedy.

9. Mitt Romney refused to get on his knees and beg forgiveness for the nasty words he said about Trump.

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.

Hacking, The New Politics?

There has been a consistent agreement in American politics that we Americans decide who are our representatives and president. Despite claims by Donald Trump, (a) there was no Russian hacking, (b) if there was, the “millions who voted illegally” means that I won the popular vote,” we are still left with the reality of a foreign government making political decisions for the American people. Ironically, it WAS illegal activities that decided the election, and, again ironically, the illegal activities AIDED THE CAMPAIGN OF DONALD TRUMP.

The question at this moment is how does America proceed? Senators Lindsay Graham, John McCain and even Mitch McDonnell desire an investigation into the hacking activities of the Russian government. Lindsay Graham put it succinctly, today it was the Democrats, tomorrow it will be Republicans. This is not subject to debate, free elections by the American people require that only Americans decide the election outcome.
