Let’s Have A Jihad

There is one thing to say about Donald Trump, he certainly does not enjoy pursuing similar policies of prior American presidents, particularly in the Middle East. Donald announced that David Friedman, a bankruptcy lawyer with NO diplomatic experience would be the  US Ambassador to Israel. Reports indicate that his son-in-law, Jared Kushner would assist the bankruptcy lawyer in furthering the cause of peace between Palestinians and Israel. OH, Mr. Friedman has already made clear that he OPPOSES  the creation of the state of Palestine.

Trump just announced that the American Embassy which is now located in Tel Aviv will be moved to Jerusalem. Palestinians already have made clear that such a move would result in violence,and the growth of extremist followers. But, Trump wants Palestinians to know that he is a FANTASTIC negotiator whose ideas will finally bring peace to Israel and her neighbors.

Hordes Of Hispanic Murderers

It was just a few months or weeks ago that Donald Trump was warning America about the hordes of Mexican rapists, murderers, gangsters and God knows what other crime that soon would be showing up in YOUR  neighborhood. For some strange reason, I have not heard much about these criminals during the past month. I assume that either they have taken a pledge of being nice or they simply disappeared over the Rio Grande river. I guess Donald is more interested in defeating China, North Korea, or ISIS these days.

Anyway, we now have some statistics, and I do understand the word, ‘statistics’ just does not register very well among Trump supporters.A study by Ewing, Martinez, and Rambaut reveals the following facts.Roughly 1.6% of immigrants from ages 18-39 are incarcerated compared to 3.3% of native born Americans. In 2010, 10.7% of native born men  aged 18-39 without a high school  degree were incarcerated compared to 2.8% of Mexican immigrants.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I can not even imagine what it would be like to be in Aleppo, can you?

We used to warn people not to be quick on the trigger, today, not not on the tweet.

I wonder if the entire Trump family will be sworn in next month?

Raise your hand if you knew you were voting for Ivanka Trump as your  president.

Terrorists now  use trucks, what next, toy guns?

Ten investigations of four dead at Benghazi, not one for cyber attacks!

I increasingly  wonder if any Republican has ever read the US Constitution?

Oh well, now is the time to worry about real important issues, who will wind up in the Super Bowl?

I wonder if in my lifetime, we will witness a Socialist as our president?

Today, stock market goes up, ah, but tomorrow, it will go DOWN–eventually!

 

People Are Saying—

I am not claiming the  following story is true, but I have heard, people are saying, just about everyone I know has been saying, and, therefore I believe it is my obligation to raise some potentially embarrassing news concerning the president-elect. During the campaign he continually refused to reveal any information pertaining to his income tax returns. He was repeatedly urged to come forth with information, but the red headed guy just would not budge.

However, I have heard, I have been told, people are talking about his failure to show the American people his birth certificate! As of this date, no American has the slightest idea as to what is the name on this birth certificate. Is it Donald Hussein Trump? What are the names of his mother and father? Is there any truth to the claim that his mother’s name is: Ama al Mustafa? I don’t know. But, neither do the American people. Why not?

However, I have been told by  some people the real reason we have not seen his birth certificate is that the name on it is: DONNA!! Note the small hands, note how he waves them  as though a woman. I am NOT saying that he or she or whoever, is a woman. But, many people, hundreds, no, thousands are asking about the name on his –or her–birth certificate!!

There He Goes Again!

At this moment in time, Donald Trump is the president-elect, but he does not have any legal authority to speak for the American people other than as a private citizen. He angered the Chinese government with inane comments about how he would not respect American foreign policy that recognizes the current relationship between Taiwan and China. The end result is anger on the part of the Chinese government, and seizure of a drone in the sea. Yesterday, Trump issued a statement denouncing policies of the German government, and, literally accusing Chancellor Merkel of failure in leadership of the nation.

His tweet emphasized there was a conflict between ISIS and its war on “Christianity” which, in effect, argues that Muslim  terrorists primarily are fighting  “Christian civilization.” Wars in Afghanistan, in Iraq, and in Syria, have resulted in the death of hundreds of thousands of MUSLIMS. Less than five percent of people murdered by Islamic terrorists are Christian. His comments simply enable any Muslim terrorist group to argue that western nations seek to destroy Muslim civilization.

Tweets can be fun, and tweets can be dangerous.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Americans quickly forget what the country was in 2009, and no longer is.

Welcome to the era of government by tweets.

One wonders if Donald Trump has actually ever read a book–from cover to cover.

A majority of Americans are not happy with the outcome of this election.

Government of the minority is now the newest American dream.

Michelle Obama has a sense of pride in America that her successor will never possess.

Sanders supporters who did NOT vote for Clinton most probably are in a state of shock over their decision.

 

The Obama Legacy

Donald Trump will shortly become president of the United States of America and   he will initiate his programs to make America Great Again. In 2009 when Barack Obama became president, he inherited an economy which was losing 800,000 jobs each month, and the national debt had risen from $5 Trillion to $11 Trillion,  and the stock market had collapsed. So,what will Donald Trump now inherit?

1. At least 200,000 new jobs created each month.

2. A growth of 3.2% in the GDP.

3. The unemployment rate is now 4.2%, among the lowest in fifteen years.

4. Health care costs have risen at the lowest rate in nearly twenty years.

5. The war in Iraq is now proceeding at a pace to end ISIS control in that part of the world.

6. Employers now confront the issue of not enough people with skills to fill existing jobs.

7. The stock market has risen to new highs.

8. The value of the dollar is now high.

YES, DONALD, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

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.
