Colin Kaepernick Stands For ?

Colin Kaepernick has become the poster boy of millions for his ‘heroic’ stand, or should one say, kneel, during playing of the Star Spangled Banner. Collin wants to make a statement. By refusing to stand, somehow, this act of heroism will result in ?? Mr. Kaepernick will earn over eight million dollars this  year so we can assume the act of defiance will not impact his daily life. He also very proudly informed Americans that he did not vote this year in order to –allow Donald Trump to gain power?

Colin has expressed pride in the performance of Fidel Castro because the Cuban leader provided excellent education and free medical care for people. Of course, at the same time, Castro sent to prison gays, lesbians, dissidents, and many were tortured. Exactly, what is a ‘great education system’ in which there is  no freedom of speech? By the way, Colin, Adolf Hitler provided jobs for people in Germany, so, by the logic of Colin, Adolf Hitler was……….?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We now have a Commander of Twitter as head of our armed forces.

The White House needs a play room for the new President.

What a wonderful experience  to witness Rudy shouting and Donald throwing mud pies as they discuss foreign affairs.

If ignorance was bliss, then President Trump would be continually happy.

Trump is the only president to be elected by a LANDSLIDE while losing the popular vote by two million votes.

Mitt Romney must be smiling these days wondering why Donald might want him as Secretary of  State.

Trump will sign veto acts until someone tells him that Congress first has to pass laws.

 

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!

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.

John McCain, The American

Once upon  a time in America it was the norm for members of Congress to have served in their country’s armed forces. Every president from Harry Truman to George H.W. Bush had been a member of their nation’s armed forces. Many like John McCain had been in combat. McCain’s grandfather was an Admiral in WWI, his father was an Admiral in WWII and Vietnam. Senator McCain was shot down in combat in the Vietnam war and endured  years of torture. He was also raised, as were all who served,to respect the Code of Military Justice which includes American agreement to abide by the Geneva Conventions. I assume draft dodger Donald Trump has NO idea as to what is legal or illegal for those who serve the country.

Senator McCain made clear that “I don’t give a damn what the president of the United States wants to do or anybody else wants to do.We will not waterboard. We will not do it.”And, he added: “What does it say about America?” If waterboarding is done under the presidency of Donald Trump it says the American military has violated its OWN LAWS OF ENGAGEMENT!

On Open Borders

I continually encounter on Facebook numerous sites that demand our government protect our borders and send back all the illegal immigrants to where they came from. Of course, EVERYONE is an illegal immigrant in the Western Hemisphere  because there were no original human life forms on it until illegal immigrants came from Asia. So, what about Open Borders in American history?

There always were Open Borders. Anyone could come to America, there were no officials here waiting to check you out. In fact, there were very few records of who actually entered the country until 1891. Until the 1840s when Castle Garden opened in New York there wasn’t even a specific place for immigrants to be processed. People just arrived, got off the ship, and went someplace to live and work. Our borders were Wide Open For One And All. NO records were kept on the Canadian border, even today, that three thousand mile stretch of land is barely supervised.

On New Year’s day, 1891, eleven year old Annie Moore stepped off a ship and set foot on Ellis Island to be the first person registered as an immigrant. Between 1880 to 1924 about  TWENTY FIVE MILLION IMMIGRANTS ARRIVED. And, believe it or not, America prospered. We are ALL illegal immigrants who took the land away from the owners of America.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

As of this date, Crooked Hillary has NEVER been convicted of any crime.

James Comey certainly committed the crime of rushing to judgment.

How or why do some Jews support Trump, the hero of anti-Semites?

I guess the hordes of Hispanic rapists and murderers are registering to vote.

The future lies with a diverse America, not an all-white anglo white America.

Donald Trump is the first candidate for president  who ran on a campaign of hate and division.

Hopefully, Americans will give a new president Democrat control of the Senate.

Silence Of Hillary

Despite the fact that FBI head James Comey just announced there is no evidence that Hillary Clinton did anything wrong, other than placing thousands of emails on her personal sever. As of this date not a single email uncovered has any relationship to matters of ‘national security.’ So, Hillary is playing this one very smart, just a stony silence of ignoring that FBI head:

1. Broke Justice Department protocols to remain silent while an investigation is in process.

2.  Broke FBI rules when he commented that Hillary Clinton was guilty of bad judgement in having emails on her  personal server. The FBI head, states facts, NOT judgments on the character of a person under investigation, and certainly not on a person who was never convicted of a crime.

3. Hillary Clinton is just remaining silent. Any word she utters to defend herself will be seized upon by Trump to ask: “if she is innocent,then why is she defending herself? What is she hiding?

There are moments when SILENCE IS THE BEST POLICY! Do not respond to anything Trump says, he wants you to get into an argument with him. Silence will devastate the bully  from New York!

November Surprises?

Just five days until the election and we can expect further surprises from James Comey and the FBI.

1. It will be revealed that HillaryClinton sent an email to Vince Foster who subsequently committed suicide. Just asking, any connection?

2. Hillary Clinton while Secretary  of State visited China. For two hours no one knows what she did. Was she meeting with her Chinese Communists superiors?Just asking.

3.  At present,we do not know if Bill Clinton had sex with females on the White House staff. The FBI wants him to prove that he did not have such relations. Just asking.

4. At present, we lack any damaging emails from Chelsea Clinton.How come? Who is hiding what?Just asking.

5. There was a black cook at the White House. We have to find out if he had sex with Hillary when she was the first lady. Can she prove that she did not?Just asking.

6. Is there any truth that among the thousands of emails not yet read, one is from Vladimir Putin discussing his love relations with Hillary? Just asking.

7. Why have the Clintons NOT revealed the emails between Bill Clinton and Vladimir Putin? What is Bill Clinton hiding?Just asking.

8. For some reason, Bill Clinton never discusses his father. Is it because his dad’s name was Pedro Gonzales? Just asking.

Where Have All The Idiots Gone?

I do understand that Trump supporters fervently believe this election is rigged. But, for some reason, knowing the election is rigged, these Trumpians insist they will vote two weeks from now. I am baffled. I would assume  if the election was rigged, every Trump supporter would head for the hills, get their guns ready for some action to save America from the horror of Hillary Clinton. I was expecting Trumpians to disappear into their homes, get their guns, and come out  ready for action. But, they are still  with  us.

Or, am I mistaken?Perhaps the Trumpians have gone to get organized for the revolution to save America. Perhaps, even as I write, they are gathering in darkened rooms, loading up weapons, running to the Gun Shop for more assault weapons, and getting ready for the last day of human civilization. Perhaps, we are only seeing robots at these Trump rallies, while the REAL Trumpians prepare for the FINAL BATTLE OF CIVILIZATION!
