Off To Court With Donald

Prior to the arrival of Donald Trump as a president, the ordinary rule was the president-elect would devote his time and energy to learning about issues confronting the nation from experts. But, this is the era of Donald Trump, who believes the main necessity of a new president is to go to court and deal with law suits. DC Superior Judge Jennifer Di Toro has ordered Donald Trump to appear for a seven hour deposition regarding his law suit against Jose Andres who he claims did not carry out an agreement to build a restaurant in the new Trump hotel in Washington D.C,

Mr. Andres refused to pursue the restaurant because he was furious at Trump attacks on Mexicans. Trump insists that he has more important things to do than be in a  court room. Alas, Judge Jennifer says, you began the law suit, then  you come to court.

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

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

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.

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.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations from a 26 year old mind trapped in an 86 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

My  mind does not want to believe that Donald Trump would actually select Ben Carson to head HUD. It makes no sense.

These days I await with curiosity who Trump will select for government positions, I am always baffled.

I really would so love to listen to a conversation between Obama and Trump.

There is no question that Donald Trump is ‘unconventional’ and that is not meant as a compliment.

Children die in Aleppo even as we teach children about the Holocaust insisting it would not happen again.

We humans simply can not endure a day of existence without murder and mayhem as the norm.

I wonder what working people who voted for Trump think when he appoints a businessman as Secretary of Labor who opposes raising the minimum wage?
