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!

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.

Hacking -Democratic Plot?

Every so often our president  elect becomes upset at something that is a fact, but just does not fit into his perspective of reality. President Obama, the FBI, the CIA and god knows who else has provided  abundant evidence of Russian efforts during the past election to influence its outcome. Initially, Donald insisted there was a difference between the FBI and the CIA. When both came out in agreement, Donald wanted to know why President Obama had not openly stated the obvious, and somehow, that was evidence there was no hacking. A few weeks have passed, there is no longer any doubt about the hacking, and the response of Donald Trump is:

1. IF, there was hacking, it impacted both candidates.

2. If there was hacking, it never influenced the outcome because millions of votes     were stolen from him by illegal immigrants or blacks or browns or women or aliens who voted for Hillary.

3. Vladimir Putin is a great guy, a fantastic leader, who never would resort to illegal tactics, after all, he is dong a fantastic job as leader of Russia.

4. Democrats control state elections and they tried to make him lose.

5. There is overwhelming proof that Jose Hernandez voted illegally in the state Arizona.

And, so on and so on.

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.

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.
