The Danger of Words

Anyone who lived through the 1960s is quite familiar with the power of words to destroy. Within a ten year period, President John Kennedy was murdered, Malcolm X was killed, Martin Luther King was murdered, and two months later Robert Kennedy was murdered. Perhaps, perhaps, Donald Trump is oblivious to the danger of his words, I  am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. But, his nonstop shouting hate and anger toward Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton could easily be interpreted by some of the nut cases attending his rallies to blast away.

Yuval Rabin, son of former Israel Prime Minister, Yitzhak Rabin warned Americans of the danger of shouting hate. His father was killed by an Israel hater who was  urged on to hate by people like Benjamin Netanyahu. ‘Trumps’s  words are an incitement  to the type of political violence that touched me personally.” Netanyahu continued to claim Rabin was a “traitor” for seeking peace with Palestinians. One day, someone transformed those words into action. Will the same occur in America?

Katrina Pierson, Asine Idiot

Anyone watching CNN each night is compelled to listen, or at least, attempt;t to listen to a group of supporters of Donald Trump. There is no doubt, that Katrina Pierson, the one with dark hair, usually, Trump women must be blondes, to go along with Fox News. I confess to  having  a death wish of being with Katrina on the day of the election in order to hear her say:

“Mr. Trump really won this election. He is so loved by millions and millions of people, but the Obama Gestapo went to extraordinary measures in order to block their Constitutional right to vote. After all,he is the greatest businessman that is currently in America. We all love Donald Trump, he is the only one who speaks for the American people. Well, this election was stolen, and we all know it was stolen by hordes of Mexican rapists who held off on their rapes for twenty four hours to vote for Crooked Hillary Clinton!”

It turns out that Ms. Pierson was arrested and convicted for stealing. When asked about this, she said: “technically, I  was arrested for shop lifting, but the important point is that I never felt that I was shop lifting.”

She was asked about the Trump  claim that Obama created ISIS. Her response: “Mr.Trump never said that President Obama actually signed the papers creating ISIS.”

When asked if Mr. Trump changed his mind on this claim, she said:
Well, yes, but  actually,no. “

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I await Donald Trump raising the issue of how the Democratic Party and President Roosevelt forced Japan to attack America.

Let me ge this straight, Barack Obama was born in the 1960s, and we had the Vietnam war in the 1960s, now you know who caused the Vietnam war!

There are currently over 50 law suits against Trump in Florida by merchants claiming Donald cheated them, so who is the “CROOK?”

I am certain if we ever get to read Trump’s tax return we will learn that he  paid no  more than 5% in taxes.

After the fantastic display of American greatness at the Olympics, I await Donald promising that if elected he will make “AMERICA GREAT AGAIN IN THE OLYMPICS”

Then again, since we no longer are a “Great Nation,” how the hell did our athletes demonstrate their greatness?

How come Crooked Hillary Clinton did not join the Armed forces during the Vietnam war?

Donald wants to punch someone out, but, obviously, he never had the  urge to punch out Communist Viet Cong guerrillas in Vietnam.

While the brave John McCain was enduring endless torture in a Viet Cong prison, Donald was enduring the torture of being exhausted fucking models.

 

Donald Concerned About An Honest Election

Donald Trump is concerned about the need  for a fair and honest election this year. Right now his main concern is that he will get cheated in the state of Pennsylvania. “Because if we get cheated out of this election, if we keg cheated out of a win in  Pennsylvania, which is a vital state, especially when I know what is  happening here, folks,  we have to call up law enforcement,  and we have to call the sheriffs,  and the police…”

The latest polls indicate that Hillary Clinton has a nine  point lead in Pennsylvania. Naturally, I have been informed by Trump officials, that this so called lead was created by crooked CNN polls and crooked national polls, and most probably if we could actually read ALL Clinton emails, the truth about how this crook is trying to steal the election  from Trump would finally emerge.

Donald, 31 of 50 Governors in the US are Republicans. I assume, since you have no knowledge of American history, no one has told you that States conduct the national election, not the Federal government. If anyone is going to steal this election, it is the Republican party!

Republican Myths And Reality

I daily encounter people, including member of my own extended family who harbor the typical Trump nonsense about Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s records in the Middle East. So, let me put to rest the myths and realities of the Middle East.

1. President Obama “withdrew American forces too early, and this  led to the rise of ISIS.”

2. “President Obama refused to maintain US troops in Iraq”

REALITY: The date to leave Iraq was set by President Bush. Obama simply adhered to the Bush deadline.

President Obama offered to leave 10,000 American soldiers in Iraq. The Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki insisted that if US troops remained and an American soldier was charged with a crime against an Iraqi citizen, the case would be tried in an Iraq court. Naturally,no American president would ever agree to such a demand.

3.”Al-Qaeda was defeated by 2007″ and then when Obama took office, he allowed in to return.

REALITY: Al-Qaeda was virtually defeated by 2007 due to two factors– the American military effort in cities, and the rise of Sunni Awakening Councils. These were organized by Sunni tribal leaders who were tired of al-Qaeda. They were assisted by US troops, and played a key role in virtually destroying  al-Qaeda. However, President Bush allowed Shiite Nouri al-Maliki to gain power. Maliki proceeded to arrest prominent Sunni leaders, broke his promise to US Military leaders to integrate Sunis and Shiites in the Iraq army. Maliki antagonized Sunni leaders and this caused was a key role in the tis of ISIS.

Neither President Obama nor Hillary Clinton had any role in the rise of ISIS. Guess whose mistakes created that organization?

Trump Idiocy Reaches New Level

I have taught a course on the Middle East for over twenty years which, I gather enables me to comment on the Middle East. But, every time I watch  CNN program where the name, Donald Trump, is mentioned, this dark haired idiot woman at some point begins to babble about  what has or is been happening in the Middle East. One can readily win a bet that it is simply a matter of time before incredible ignorance pours from her mouth.

According to Katrine Pierson, President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are responsible for the war in Afghanistan. I must confess that somehow I recall that American forces invaded Afghanistan in the fall of 2001 in response to the 9/11 attack. She then went on to claim that al-Qaeda was defeated in 2007, and then it came back due to Obama. She also claimed: “remember, we weren’t even in Afghanistan at this time. Barack Obama went into Afghanistan.”

Of course, her rambling is simply utter nonsense. And, she is a “chief spokesperson” for Donald Trump. Frankly, I doubt whether Ms. Pierson or Donald Trump even knows where Afghanistan is. And, forty percent of Americans want this idiot king for their president!!

Dress Well In Water

I was raised in an east European Jewish neighborhood in which many women wore head coverings, and many men wore a Yarmulke on top of their head. If one examines pictures of women swimming during the early twentieth century, it is clear that women covered their entire bodies with clothes. Of course, this was the norm in most CHRISTIAN nations of the western world.

But, today, there is great concern if a Muslim woman dares to cover up while bathing. Officials in the south of France forced a Muslim group to cancel a pool party because its sponsors wanted women to cover up. The wearing of veil and anything that covers the face  when in the public is illegal in France. So, we have gone from covering up in pools to wearing scanty swim suits because the entire nation would collapse. When will common sense arrive in France?

Frankly, take it off, or put it on are one in the same!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

The lesson Hillary never learned, no one can get you if you talk rather than write.

All too often Donald Trump talks to himself when speaking to an audience.

Rudy Giuliani can never say anything about anything without praising himself.

There was the Battle of the Bulge in 1944 in which 100,000 American soldiers were killed, wounded or captured, and there was the more important battle of Benghazi in which four Americans died.

Republican presidents create the mess for which Democratic presidents get blamed.

The silence of the Bush family is deafening.

Most of Donald’s  problems arise when he just has to add something to what he said.

I guess Ted Cruz must be enjoying the Trump collapse. After all, he was the one who openly refused to back Donald.

This is the first presidential campaign in which one’s children play a key role.

I spend my nights wondering which Cabinet position will be filled by Ivanka.

Donald’s “Death Tax” proposal would give his family an extra $4 billion if he  died.

Someone should tie Donald’s hands  when he rises to give a speech.

 

Buddies Again

There is an old expression that birds of a feather flock together. Well, we now have an example as Turkey and Russia agree to end their conflict and work together on issues in the Middle East. The drive to become buddies after Turkey shot down a Russian plane, and refused to apologize arose from the recent attempted “coup”by some Turkish officers to overthrow the Erdogan government. Erdogan insists the coup was planned by Fetullah Gulen, a former ally, who Erdogan insists is involved in secret plans to overthrow his government.

Actually, Erdogan has used the failed coup to virtually end democracy in Turkey. Over sixty thousand Army officers, police officers, judges, lawyers, deans of college, classroom teachers and journalist are now in prison. President Erdogan demands the American government turn over Gulen who currently lives in the US. “Sooner or later the US will make a choice. Either Turkey or FETO(Gulen’s group.”

Unfortunately for Erdogan, in the US there are courts -not under control by the government to obey its demands. In order to send Gulen back to Turkey necessitates a court procedure. It is NOT a decision the president can make by himself. This concept of limited power by the president is foreign to President Erdogan and President Putin.

Donald The Reckless

There are moments when one is amazed at the antics and behavior of Donald Trump. If there is one topic no one in politics should become involved in, then Donald does not give a damn, he just plunges straight on. That topic is–the murder of American political leaders. Just examine the record:

President Lincoln

President McKinley

President Kennedy

Malcolm X

Martin Luther King

Robert Kennedy

And, now the red headed idiot is playing around with suggesting, –not telling-that someone should blast away at Hillary Clinton. Frankly, I simply do not understand how any intelligent person could support this man, but, unfortunately, millions do. He is without question, the most dangerous person ever to seek the presidency.
