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!

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.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Take away the word, FANTASTIC, and Trump is speechless.

One day, one day, Donald Trump will actually explain how America will become a Great Nation again.

I wonder if anyone could actually make a critical remark about Trump without resulting in emails galore about it?

I await Alec Baldwin being appointed to the Cabinet to end his satirical remarks about the president elect.

I wonder what goes through the mind of Mitt Romney these days, did he escape from a horrible end by never being selected as Secretary of State?

I doubt if Donald understands the word HOPE means an expectation of sanity in the leadership of the nation?

I guess for Michelle Obama the situation today is HOPELESS.

In the old days in the wild west, gunmen checked their guns when they came to town, today, billionaires check their wallets when appointed to a government position.

David Friedman, Trump Ambassador To Israel

Each passing day is another adventure into bizarre nominations of  white men who will shortly become the Cabinet of Donald Trump. His latest nomination is a man named David Friedman, and he will soon become the US Ambassador to the nation of Israel. He will be charged with working to ensure a peaceful resolution of the conflict between Israel and Palestinians. Mr. Friedman is an Orthodox Jew, whose speciality is in the area of bankruptcy. I gather he was quite busy working on the numerous bankruptcies of the Trump empire. These are his views:

1. He opposes creation of a nation of Palestine.

2. He does not like Muslims.

3. He financially supports conservative political parties in Israel.

4. He has absolutely NO knowledge of the Middle East, has never studied about the area, I guess, this lack of knowledge makes him a prime person to handle the Middle East and bring peace to the area.

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

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?

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.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

So, did Donald  want Mitt to get on his knees and apologize?

I still am confused why Ben Carson  did not become Secretary of State, he knew how to separate twins joined at birth, so which problem  could he fail to solve?

I wonder what Rudy Giuliani is shouting about these days?

The Holocaust expression, Never Again, is now, AGAIN.

Trump has made America Great Again by being Silent Again when people are murdered.

Illegal immigrants murder ONE person while native born Americans have murdered 660 here in Chicago, so who is the problem?

Fascinating how Lindsay Graham has become the moral voice of Republicans, he wants the truth about  Russian hacking.
