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.

Aleppo

What can one say about Aleppo that already has not been stated? The horror of this event lives on in the minds and hearts of all decent people.  There are two nations that are most responsible for this event–Iran and Russia. And, who will be our next Secretary of State–Rex Tillerson of ExxonMobil,the man who has spent twenty  years sucking up to Vladimir Putin and the thugs who are proud of assisting President Assad in the murder of hundreds of thousands. Those who teach about the Holocaust pose the question–why did the world stand by and allow the murder of six million Jews? We have just stood by and witnessed the murder of hundreds of thousands, including children, and were silent.

Appointing Rex Tillerson as our Secretary of State would simply reward one who, in one way or another, aided those who murdered the innocent. We cannot allow this ally of death to become our spokesperson since he has demonstrated disregard for human rights. If one lies down with murderers, one is a murderer.

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.

Another Death, By Police

There is no question the majority of police are hard working decent people, but it has become  apparent–due to cell phones and other equipment that ordinary  people are capturing videos of police out of control.  Mr. Francisco Serna, age 72, is experiencing the early stage of dementia and frequently goes for walks. Two nights ago, he went for a walk in the early  hours of the morning. A neighbor reported there was a strange man with a weapon outside in his driveway.  Police arrived at the scene. They saw a man standing in the driveway. The neighbor insisted the man had a weapon.

There were several police at the scene of action. Not a single one approached the man, they just began to blast away. Nine shots later, Mr. Serna, age 72, was dead. No weapon was ever discovered. Kern County, California now leads the nation in having people shot by police. A county of 900,000 people has witnessed more police killings than the city of New York. Wonder why?

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.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

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

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?
