He Trumps Them All

Donald Trump is very clear about one point–he knows how to make deals, Not only does he know how to make deals, he understands how to make a Great Deal, one that will clean out any opponent and make them admit they are stupid and they will do whatever Donald desires. Donald spent considerable time and energy discussing the new trade deal which President Obama is negotiating with Asian nations. Donald made clear this is one stupid deal which will allow China to rob us blind. He went on and on about how the deal was one that China would love because it would allow China to take more and more of our jobs.China cheats the US and this deal would enable China to cheat some more.

At this point, a moderator noted: “But, Mr.Trump, China is not part of the deal.” Well, the Donald man was quick to respond. He made clear that what he has just been talking about made clear that China was not part of the deal.From that point on, he wanted the audience to know that he knows how to make Great Deals and he will not allow China to beat us in any deal.

Who else but the Great Mouth could get away with this one. Naturally, the audience loved his denunciation of a deal that did not involve China. Only in the Republican party with its Republican idiots.

The Mets Are Went Down To Defeat

I do realize this blog is supposed to focus upon world events and issues of importance to humankind. Well, for some of us,baseball and football and basketball are a lot more important than who ISIS killed today.The New York Mets were killed, no, murdered, by their incompetence and the pitchers of the Kansas City Royals. These are not joyous days in the city of New York. First,we had to deal with idiots from Texas or the states of the South who continue electing men and women who would fail getting through elementary school, and now we have to endure a bunch of hicks from Kansas City doing harm to our lives.

Let me explain the reasons for the Mets losing the World Series:

1, Barack Obama caused the Ebola scare and since he finished with that one he decided to scare New Yorkers. Remember, he comes from Hawaii, wherever that place is.

2. Ted Cruz never got a chance to filibuster the umps and that’s why the Mets lost.

3. John Boehner cried for the Kansas City Royals,but not one tear for the Mets!

4. Met players were forced to listen to Ben Carson explaining his tax program and they just fell asleep. Unfortunately,they kept on sleeping on the baseball field.

5. Donald Trump is from New York.The Met Hispanic players were afraid he would send them back to the Dominican Republic or Mexico or wherever and they were afraid to get hits against the gringoes.

Afghan Hospital Mystery Continues

There is now only one thing certain about an American airstrike in the Afghan city of Kunduz–people died including members of Doctors Without Borders. The initial American report from General John Campbell was there was a fight raging and bullets were coming from what later was found to be a hospital. Then, he changed his mind and admitted there was no hostile fire from the hospital. Now, an American tank is at the ruins of the hospital seeking further evidence. An initial report was that a PAKISTANI member of the ISI- Interservice Intelligence directorate was in the hospital and directing fire. I assume tomorrow:

1. Osama bin Laden was never really killed but he was in the hospital directing the battle.

2. ISIS had its headquarters in the hospital.

3. The Martians were using the hospital as a base to organize their invasion of Earth.

American planes, for one reason or another, bombed the damn hospital!

Kim Jon Un On Anything

Among the certainties of life is that Kim Jon un will make a statement about his great army and his ability to destroy any nation in the world, and that means– you Americans. ‘Our revolutionary force is ready to respond to any kind of war the American imperialists want. Our People’s Liberation Army has become the strongest revolutionary force and our country has become an impenetrable fortress as a global military power.”

OK, Kim Jong, since you think North Korea can beat anyone at anything, how about:

A basketball game between North Korea and Ecuador?

A baseball game between the North Korean baseball stars vs. any Little League team Kim identifies?

A rifle target shooting between the best North Korean shot and Donald Trump? He can blast anyone to dust.

A bowling for bombs event,winner takes home all the bombs?

North Korean bomb experts vs ISIS in IED success.

Let’s Check Out Jesus

I continually see signs from Trump supporters that declare: “THANK YOU JESUS FOR DONALD TRUMP.” I decided it was necessary to go right to the Jesus guy myself and check out why he sent Donald Trump to planet Earth.

M: So, Jesus, why Donald Trump?

J: Who?

M: Donald,Donald Trump,the guy who has plans to change this planet.

J: Oh, the red haired guy who wakes me up every night with those incessant phone calls!

M: You mean that Trump actually speaks with you?

J: “Speak” would not be the word I would use. More like, shout and demand and insist that I return to Earth and appear at one of his rallies.

M: You mean that you would support Donald Trump for president?

J: Fred, it is now a question of whether I support him or he will buy out Heaven and kick me out!

M: So, what will you do, my good friend?

J: Well, I talked to Dad and he warned me to be careful because Donald has his eyes on the Big Guy in the sky job!

What About North Korea?

The American press and the American political scene is focused on issues such as the Middle East or the potential of an atomic weapon in the hands of Iranian leaders. Bibi Netanyahu is worried sick that ten years from now Iran MIGHT have a nuclear weapon. Of course, Israel already HAS atomic weapons but the world should trust Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu who continually demands attacks on Iran.

On the other hand, Admiral Bill Gortney, head of the Northern Command, reminded Americans there might be nation RIGHT NOW which can attack the US. He is greatly concerned about North Korea. “We assess that they have the capability to reach the homeland(USA) with a nuclear weapon from a rocket. i’m pretty confident that we’re going to knock down the number that are going to be shot.”

So, Iran has NO atomic weapons, but North Korea HAS them and we are worried about–IRAN??

Why Not Me, President?

Aung San Suu Kyi has been the leader of most people in Myanmar but she is not allowed to run for president because military leaders know that if she ran, they would lose the presidency. So they inserted a clause in the Constitution that prevents anyone married to a foreigner to become the president–her dead husband was born in England. So, Suu Kyi has come up with a novel idea. “I’ve made it quite clear that if the NLD wins the election and we form a government, I’m going to be the leader of that government whether or not I’m the president. Why not? Should you have to be president to lead a country?”

I assume that she wants to make Myanmar just like the good-old USA. After all, in the coming presidential election, if Republicans win, the Koch Brothers will be president and, Sheldon Adelson will handle foreign affairs, particularly in the Middle East. Now, if Jeb wins, which of his donors gets to be the guy running the show?


We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

Canada, Toronto Star: “Mass Mystery”

How Americans who do not posses guns want everyone to have them.

Russia,Moscow Times: “Putin Seeks Center Stage”

Alone, I assume!

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Unauthorized Research”

No one will ever know what actually resides in the brain of Donald Trump.

France, Connexion: “Leaning Towers Approved”

In Texas, that means leaning to the right.

Australia, Canberra Times: “Cash Appointed Minister”

At least the cash will wind up in an elected official’s hand.

Bombs Away, Means Death Arrives

One of the enduring myths spouted by our President and the Republican party is that bombs dropped from the sky will fall exactly where they are supposed to fall. We possess modern technology that results in accurate destruction of targets. We have accepted this myth since World War II, we were convinced during the Vietnam war that our bombers only hit military targets. The dream lives on and on in Afghanistan which has witnessed the death of thousands due to our drones and planes.

American planes “hit targets” in Kunduz in Afghanistan. They aimed their bombs at the bad guys. After our planes departed, there were nineteen dead at a hospital including twelve members of the medical staff. “The bombs hit,and then we heard the second plane circle around and then there was a pause, and then bombs hit.” The dead included members of Doctors Without Borders.

I am certain US military officials will insist:

There were insurgents hiding in the hospital.

P.S.Has anyone considered sending Donald Trump and Ted Cruz to clean up the mess in Afghanistan?

Russia’s Afghanistan??

During the 1980s, when Vladimir Putin was an obscure operative for the Russian secret police, the KGB, a Russian Communist leader decided to come to the aid of some Afghan Communists and sent Russian troops into the land. About ten years later, and thousands of dead Russian soldiers later, the Russians departed that land of sorrow. Now, there is another Russian leader, Vladimir Putin, who has decided to send in the troops, this time, not to Afghanistan, but to Syria. Putin insists his soldiers will mainly be members of the air force or navy,no boots on the ground.

So, welcome, Vladimir to the mess in Syria. Send in your troops, sent in your air force, send in your navy. There will come a day when some Russian soldiers will be killed on the streets of Damascus,and Vladimir will demand revenge.Again Russian troops will die.

Barack, just remember, there is NO western solution to the mess in Syria, remain out and let them fight it out. In the end, Muslims must solve their own problems.
