CREATIVE IMMIGRATION SOLUTIONS

Trump is the Bozo on this Bus

I’ve often said that people who work in government are not particularly creative. Some of those public servants may be smart and have imaginative abilities, but the bureaucratic pounding over the years can wring that talent right out of those people with original ideas.

If we agree that illegal immigration is a challenge here in America, then it behooves us to find a solution. People from Mexica and Central American countries are seeking asylum in the US, but the current resident in the White House believes that the law about asylum is a “con job.” In fact, the law is clear: “The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) authorizes the Attorney General to grant asylum if an alien is unable or unwilling to return to their country of origin because she has suffered past persecution or has a well-founded fear of future persecution on account of ‘race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.'”

The Trump administration has no interest is this law and will do whatever it can to stop its enforcement, but is it really thinking about a creative solution? Let’s look at a few ideas.

First, the Aleutian Islands off the mainland of Alaska currently has a population of 8,162 people. These 6,821 square miles of land could provide an opportunity for people seeking asylum in the US. We have encouraged landed immigrants to settle in undeveloped lands in our past. BTW, that is about the same area as Massachusetts.

A more creative thinking President might support families seeking landing status in the United States if they would like to develop these sparsely populated areas. Throw in a pathway to citizenship, and we could end up with a huge positive for state, country and immigrants.

What if safe oil drilling and production could take place in this area and bring an economic boom to an ignored area of our nation? What if we could encourage these landed asylum seekers ways to create, run and develop small farms? We could simultaneously increase the quality of the country’s food supply and help solve the problem immigration influx.

Here’s a final idea, perhaps more controversial. We could enlist males of age coming across the border into a strong, Spanish speaking military force to partner with Mexican and Central American forces to end crime and deal a blow to terrorism. Without the control of the underlying problems in these countries, we will never be able to curtail the flow of dangerous refugees into the United States.

Donald Trump doesn’t care about people; he cares only about power. When backed into a corner, he blames someone else. There is no effort to find creative solutions to any problem because he’s doesn’t have innovative thinking or energy. In his privately held businesses, he has shouted orders without the scrutiny of a board of directors, stockholders and employees. Running the United States is much more difficult and the chaos in his administration pushes focus onto how things look rather than creative solutions.

Immigration could bring us a win-win. Unfortunately, our government’s smartest people are not permitted to offer solutions. Trump is the worst boss ever and, absolutely the worst president of my lifetime.

RIGHTEOUS RESOLUTIONS

Trump is out of the loop

Those who are unfamiliar with the way the US government works are guilty of not paying attention. Granted, our educational system doesn’t disclose civic concepts as much as someone must learn to achieve citizenship, but there some peculiar things being done in Washington that bear mentioning.

After the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights and the Constitution were completed, we needed to establish rules and policies to keep all three government branches running smoothly. On the federal level, Congress established a set of rules governing ethics and etiquette. To make things a bit more complex, the House rules differ from those of the Senate.

One regulation stipulates that members of the House should dress appropriately, which has traditionally been considered to include a coat and tie for men and appropriate attire for women. Members cannot wear overcoats or hats while the House is in session and they cannot eat, drink or smoke. Also, use of personal electronic equipment, including cellular telephones and laptop computers, is banned on the floor of the House.

The Senate has 44 rules, and one of them allows a member vote to suspend them. Strange. In either house, a member saying something bad about another member is frowned upon. They cloak this decree in the hazing reality of decorum, “A Member should avoid impugning the motives of another Member, the Senate, the Vice President or the President, using offensive language, or uttering words that are otherwise deemed unparliamentary.Ignore this directive and the chair will ask to have your words expunged from the record.

The house stipulates that a member cannot refer to another by name. Formal language such as, “the member from the great state of California,” must be used.

A Congressional member can say whatever they want outside of chambers, but while they are on the job of representing their constituency they must always be aware that words spoken in their clubhouse have power and meaning.

So, after Iowa’s Steve King said some clearly racist and neo-Nazis things online and in the press, the House rebuked him with a resolution. It’s was a public spanking, and the leaders went even further by stripping King of his positions on several influential committees.

And now we come to newly elected Ilhan Omar, from the “great state of Minnesota.” She wanted to talk about “the political influence in this country that says it is okay for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country.” She was referencing Israel. Her follow-up tweet, “It’s all about the BENJAMINS!” irked many pro-Israel Democrats and Republicans in both the Senate and the House. Her words felt like a Jewish stereotype and anti-Semitic trope to many members and had to be addressed by the Speaker of the House. Putting this in perspective, the annual funding Israel receives from the United States may be increased by $200 million in 2019. The total amount of aid is expected to be $3.3 billion in 2019. America holds true loyalty to Israel for both political and moral reasons. The moral grounding is based on the fact that America waited so long to get involved in World War II, we have a bit of guilt that had we gotten into the war sooner, we might have been able to stop Hitler’s murder machine and save lives.

The House of Representatives passed House Resolution 183, which condemns anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim discrimination and bigotry against minorities as hateful expressions of intolerance contrary to the values and aspirations of the United States. All but 23 members voted for this resolution.

Those who voted against it were all Republicans and they included: Reps. Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Mo Brooks (Ala.), Ken Buck (Colo.), Ted Budd (N.C.), Michael Burgess (Texas), Liz Cheney (Wyo.), Chris Collins (N.Y.), Mike Conaway (Texas), Rick Crawford (Ark.) and Jeff Duncan (S.C.), Reps. Louie Gohmert (Texas), Paul Gosar (Ariz.), Tom Graves (Ga.), Pete King (N.Y.), Doug LaMalfa (Calif.), Thomas Massie (Ky.), Steven Palazzo (Miss.), Mike Rogers (Ala.), Chip Roy (Texas), Greg Steube (Fla.), Mark Walker (N.C.), Ted Yoho (Fla.) and Lee Zeldin (N.Y.). Steve King (R-Iowa), who was stripped off his committee assignments for remarks he made regarding white supremacy earlier this year, voted present.

Some said they voted against the resolution because it didn’t name Representative Omar by name. They claim they do not condone anti-Semitism or anti-Muslim speech and further state they are not defending or promoting bigotry against minorities, but it sure looks that way. Why would they possibly vote against that resolution? Some were told to by the “mind controllers” in their caucus, while other people, like Wyoming’s Liz Cheney, would vote against God himself for pushing any anti-Neo-Con viewpoint. She obviously got her opinions from her father, Dick Cheney, while he ended up with someone else’s heart. Unfortunately, they both have the same brain.

You may not like Ms. Omar’s viewpoint, but her election, by the people and for the people, was the result of how America has modified its welcome message. We aren’t as open to OTHERS these days and that forces people to cluster in neighborhoods and conclaves of like-minded speakers. And when they elect representatives, they tend to hold the beliefs and thoughts and prayers of those around them. Donald Trump is greatly responsible for more diversity in the halls of Congress. Remember, he called it a “Muslim” ban.

Trump, the master of English grammar and syntax, said the resolution was a disgrace. Once again, Trump was out of the loop and incoherent with his comments, swatting away a chance to show leadership. Liz Cheney said the resolution didn’t address the real problem before us, which was her way of conveying a feeling that the real problem in the House of Representatives is the Republicans are no longer in control. Trump has no clue on how government really works and will never learn. The perfect answer is to make him a one-term president, then arrest him.

TRUMP IS CRAZY

America Can Do Better Than This

I woke up this morning with a question thumping through my mind, “Why do Americans have to suffer because of Donald Trump?” For the life of me, I don’t understand why any clear-thinking person can’t see through this bloated baffoon.

First, we do have one of the best economies since right after World War II. Why can’t the boy in power just leave that alone? Why aggravate the situation with emotional trade wars, threating tweets and creating barriers between the US and our allies? If we are doing so well, why would any American have to go without a paycheck? Trump’s theories are ill-conceived and foolish, and they make people go without pay and cause children to die in our custody.

Donald Trump suggests we are going to have to suffer for the short term to fix what he claims has been broken for years, really? For the most part, the world has avoided massive wars during the past 45 years and the economies of most developed countries have been relatively stable. Why screw with that? I don’t believe in Donald Trump. He’s not a king or a deity, but he certainly is a shitty economist.

You can line-up the top economists and Neo-cons in Congress and ask them to explain things, but you will not get a clear answer about what is so wrong with a global economy. We’ve already paid for a better life with cheap clothes and cars. BTW, the air is cleaner in Pittsburgh and a hard drive company now sits where a steel mill used to be. Trump didn’t always buy American steel to build some of his unimaginative buildings, and you can argue that hurt this country. But now that he’s in charge he wants to fix it all. Good luck, fat ass; isolationism works only when you have no friends.

The recent government shutdown, the third in a year, proves that Donald J. Trump is a horrendous executive with zero talent for pre-planning and advanced thinking. We could avoid all this if Trump wasn’t such a stupid politician. Smart politicians get what they want by goals that inflict the least amount of pain on the people they expect to re-elect them.

Trump stood in the rose garden of the White House yesterday and inferred that people who aren’t getting paychecks care more about his wall than the pain they will feel without food on the table. What an out-of-touch human being. What a dolt Donald is.

The Democrats, now swelling with power in the House of Representatives, feel that they must stop Trump. Are their actions purely partisan or are they really executing a brilliant tactic to demonstrate that our leader is only a feckless loser wearing no pants?

What most people don’t understand is that building a wall of the magnitude Trump wants would take decades with a cost close to $200-300 billion. In my hometown, it took six months to repave a one-mile strip of road. At that rate, straight math suggests it would take more than 300 years to build a 2,000-mile border wall.

Donald Trump knows that construction projects take time. Building the Trump Tower in New York took two years, and two people died in the process.

The real problem here folks, as the Donald likes to call you, is that we have a thug-businessman in the White House, and that doesn’t seem to be working in DC. As much as I hate Newt Gingrich, at least he understands that Washington works on its own rules and on its own clock. Trump knows nothing; I’m not at all sure about what skills he has. He certainly doesn’t know how to please all the people who want him to be a real leader, including 60% of American citizens and our allies all over the world.

Trump’s government shutdown over the wall is symbolic of his whole presidency. He cares only about a win for Trump, regardless of the cost to American workers and their families. He casts a shadow over the prospect of meaningful negotiation by saying the government could be shut down for months, maybe years. What a fucking baby. And then he says he could declare a national emergency and build the wall as Commander-in-Chief. Now you know why Mattis quit, General Kelly is gone, and McMaster is missing in action. Yet our lunatic President claims that he knows how America works. Where are the new Generals to step up keep this jagoff under control? Well I call BS. It’s time to impeach the motherfucker. To be clear, both Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels are mothers.

 


DENSELY DUMB ON HEALTHCARE

Trump Shows His Lack of Leadership, Again

Once again, the Republicans and their head Goofball, Donald Trump, have passed something without the comprehension on how their policy affects people. The Tax Reform the President cheered, was basically a trojan horse that gave a right-wing judge in Texas the justification to throw out the whole Affordable Care Act. What the fine print giveth, a judge wrote some large print to, in a sense, make a new law. Judges are not supposed to write law, they are supposed to judge the constitutionality of a policy.

The fact that the fine, or what Justice Roberts called a tax, was taken away by the president and all his clones in Congress, has created a problem far behind the celebration we saw at the White House. When Trump said that healthcare was very complicated, “who knew” he showed his lack of focus on subject and the reason his lack of reading and understanding anything is a giant flaw in this man. He’s unqualified to be president and has no credibility on any issue. He doesn’t take the time to understand or even take a deeper look to see the pros and cons of any important decision.

The Complicit Members of Congress

Trump tweeted without thinking again, “Wow, but not surprisingly, ObamaCare was just ruled UNCONSTITUTIONAL by a highly respected judge in Texas. Great news for America!” One of the questions someone should ask the president, “How is this good for America?” When our Great Orange Leader cheers taking away people’s healthcare insurance, how can he sleep? Trump is not incurable disease, a deity or an emperor, he can be eliminated with a cure called IMPEACHMENT.

After being excited about the Texas ruling, Trump’s more civil side sent out a tweet that said, “Now Congress must pass a STRONG law that provides GREAT healthcare and protects pre-existing conditions. Mitch and Nancy, get it done!” He totally doesn’t recognize that his bad ideas led to problems. He created the problem by sabotaging the law and then he pushes the problem to Congress as if he is an external satellite only rotating around the people, not really helping them.

With all the complications Trump faces with investigations into every part of his business and governance, he decided to attack SNL. WTF? He positioned the comedy show as part of a vast conspiracy against him. Hate to break the news to him, but it isn’t a conspiracy, they are presenting skits where you are the joke. What the Donald should deal with is the fact that more than 60% of the America public want to laugh at Donald Trump. They love when the court jester shows that the President has no pants.

The number of his rants (tweets) are increasing because he feels like he is under attack, surveillance and being second guessed on everything he does. It’s true, there are many patriots out to get him. They are smart lawyers and law makers who realize that Donald Trump does not respect the law and has no patience for regular order. He wants chaos over calm. He wants dictatorship over leadership. He serves no productive purpose in his current position and should be removed. After he is impeached, the courts can decide whether he is the crook many think he is. But for now, let’s get to it and IMPEACH him. That would make America great, again.

MOST IMPORTANT MESSAGE

Fewer Talking Points and More Votes

If you have followed this blog over the last two years, you know we’ve been very critical of the present administration and full disclosure, Donald J. Trump becoming president was the reason we started whywait4years.com, but let’s focus on you.

If you wonder what you can do about this mess, it’s simple. You need to get out of bed tomorrow and make your way to your polling place and VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!

If you want to keep the Donald in check, you must vote for as many Democrats as possible. Even though we do subscribe to the truth that ALL ELECTIONS ARE LOCAL, this election is more about stabilizing the whole republic. If there was ever an election to vote straight ticket, this is the one. The only way to control Trump and this madness is to put as many Democrats as possible in office.

If you are just a little uneasy about the rash decisions of Donald Trump, vote Democrat. If you have some fantasy of impeachment to cure America of this politician con-man, vote Democrat. And finally, if you don’t want Congress to continue to back the monster in the White House, then vote for people who will stand up to this reckless President.

To all those Jill Stein, Gary Johnson voters, did you learn your lesson? To all those Bernie Sanders frustrated non-voters, shame on you. To those who view this as “just a midterm election,” you are naïve. EVERYONE NEEDS TO VOTE THE SYSTEM. And the same thing I said in 2016, I say today, “a vote for an indie or write-in” is only giving the person you don’t want a path to winning. You don’t want bad people telling you what to do and attempt to replace our America with a racist-tinged ideology, then you need to get your butt out and vote!

It’s time to VOTE!

Bye, Bye, Miss American Pie

No Soup for You, Sarah Sanders

The lyrics of 1971’s “American Pie,” Don McLean’s complex and mysterious song which laments the day that rock ‘n’ roll died, asks us to unravel the history of music and faith. It’s a bitter bite of nostalgia. Various forms of the word “die” are heard almost twenty times. Somewhere in those long, haunting lyrics, McLean makes us realize that things from our youth die just about every day. We now have one more piece of that pie sitting on our plates, the death of Democracy. Will we have to swallow it?

The 116th episode of the TV sitcom Seinfeld which first aired in 1995 introduced the “The Soup Nazi.” That show has been played in what feels like a million times in reruns. The character, Yev Kassem was called a “Nazi” because of the aggressive and excessively strict regimentation he demanded from his customers. In the classic scene, George asks for bread with his soup claiming that everyone else in line got free bread. When George presses his point, the “Soup Nazi” yells “No soup for you!” and the woman at the cash register snatches George’s soup from his hand and returns his money.

Once again, the Supreme Court has set us up. They ruled that a Colorado cake maker, based on his religious convictions, could deny baking a wedding cake for a gay couple. They attempted to soften the blow of their discrimination with language so narrow it practically applied to that one incident only. Today we learned that the Supreme Court wiped away an opinion against a florist who declined to make flower arrangements for a same-sex couple’s marriage. They sent that case back to the lower court, asking them to revisit the suit using their decision on the cake maker as a guide.

When Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen stupidly decided to go to a Mexican restaurant after separating families at the Mexican border, she was shouted out of the establishment by protesters. The refrain, “Shame! Shame! Shame!” was too much for Ms. Nielsen, and she wisely left the restaurant.

This weekend, another restaurant owner took things into his own hands and asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family to leave his restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, simply because she works for Donald Trump.

America is now going to use our freedom of speech and convictions to block people from commercial services. It’s not Sarah Sanders they were asking to leave that restaurant, rather they were asking Donald Trump to leave the White House. If Trump uses Twitter to mass distribute his beliefs and conspiracies, the only way to cut through and get our message out is to take radical steps. Hateful as it may seem to some, the President’s strident use of hate demands an equally loud voice.

Of course, President Trump had to defend his Press Secretary on Twitter, “The Red Hen Restaurant should focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I always had a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!”

So, this is how it goes. The President of the United States can defame and attempt to shame a restaurant because they were doing the same thing as the florist and the cake maker. He can’t handle discrimination when it happens to him.

Experts say a person can’t sue a sitting president for defamation. Is that true? Isn’t this where we’re headed? You see, with this Great Orange Leader, the Supreme Court will have to decide how much power the Chief Executive has in America. They cannot fail on this issue.

If they give him more power, we are doomed as a nation. All the Trump lovers could have to deal with the next president being worse than Donald. Or is this all just a set up to have one of his inner circle (Daughter or Son-in-Law) take the office when he is too weak to sit on the potty each morning, tweeting his vitriol and hate. Is there an adult diaper big enough to catch all the horseshit that comes out of this angry, fat, old man?

Congress, especially the Republicans, are lost. The Supreme Court is teetering on the brink of conservative nonsense and the President is losing his marbles. I’ve never said this before, but I sure hope that we have some military patriots who will protect the Constitution if need be.

That’s it folks. Sarah Sanders can’t complain about being turned away from the Red Hen because she is complicit in the remaking of an America which mirrors the values taught by her foolish father, Mike. His tweet this weekend, backing up Trump’s lie about Democrats supporting Mexican gangs, is exactly what is wrong with America. Both Sarah and Mike should probably lay off the pie and focus on the Bible. I believe somewhere in that book is the inference that lying is a sin and taking babies away from their mothers and fathers will not help during the final hours. Look it up.

I DON’T REALLY CARE!

Melania’s Thoughtless Gaffe

When a human being wears a garment with a message, they are saying something. If someone is surprised when another notices what is written on their chest or back, they must be brain dead.

I lived in Washington, D.C. during the big celebration of the bicentennial. A famous T-shirt was sold locally that said, “I am not a tourist. I live here.” This was a comment flipping the bird to all those people who invaded the city that summer for the July 4th, 1976 festivities. A friend’s mother, who came from Montreal and still had a thick French-Canadian accent, always wanted to borrow it to make a statement to people she felt treated her like a foreigner in her new country, the U.S.A.

Our President, Donald Trump attempts to deflect blame backward, as if that vindicates his many mistakes. It’s like the young child who uses the phrase, “He did it first!” as a defense for any crime he perpetrates on others. Trump’s behavior should surprise no one because we have a child Commander-in-Chief.

If you expect any moral grounding from Melania Trump, you are suffering from the illusion that she is on your side. She married Donald Trump. Now I don’t’ know if it was love, good sex or the money, but she has already looked the other way. And, quite frankly, I don’t really care.

If you want facts from this fractured farce of a leader and his wife, then you are suffering from lack of memory. The reason we have loyalty and hate pitched against each other is because Trump demands loyalty above morality and he uses hate to divide and conquer.

Someone asked me, “Why all the name calling and putdowns of the leader of the free world?” I don’t really care. When I say something, or post something, or write an article, it’s with the hope that the Great Orange Leader might see it. And I know that the only way to get to him is to reach down into the mud with him. I want to make him angry, and if you don’t like it, I don’t really care.

The corruption and lies exist in bright daylight. Scott Pruitt, the swamp dweller who is destroying the E.P.A., is the perfect example of loyalty being more important than any misdeeds or misuse of office. Trump adds water to the swamp and feeds the alligators with his ignorance and lies. Pruitt is the poster boy for why Trump is a bad president.

Melania going to the border to talk to the kids was a fucking photo-op. It was a P.R. stunt designed to make it appear that the administration cares. As I have often said, the implication of the opposite is clear. Melania doesn’t care about something, we just don’t know what that something is. Remember, this is the same woman who called her husband bragging about grabbing pussy, “Boy talk.” She also claimed that the Donald was egged on by Billy Bush and that was the excuse for his comment. She even had trouble saying the word, “egged.” And let’s remember that Billy Bush lost his job, not Trump.

I don’t think Melania is very smart. If she was a thinking, caring person, she would have left Donald Trump years ago. I can say the same thing about Hillary Clinton, she should have left Bill Clinton years ago, but she isn’t dumb. Hillary calculated the risk and made the wrong choice. If she made better choices, she just might be president today. I don’t really care, Do u?

Let’s not make the model Melanija Knavs, from Slovenia (then part of Yugoslavia) into a protected queen. She’s just another pretty face that Donald Trump has used for his personal gain and gratification. He will dump her when he’s done with her. If she cannot communicate properly when representing the White House on a trip to see kids who were separated from their parents and held against their will, then she shouldn’t be allowed to do any official business. If you think this is a little harsh, well, I don’t really care.

WHAT’S WRONG WITH DONALD TRUMP?

The Real Challenge for America

A friend recently asked, “Why do you post negative things about our President every day?” After thoughtfully considering the question, I answered, “I truly believe that he is bad for America.” And, of course, I had a stronger argument. The goal isn’t bringing you to my point of view but rather giving you a few things to think about between now and the next time you vote.

President Trump created a humanitarian crisis by demanding Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen apply a “zero tolerance” policy to every person coming across our borders, whether they are seeking asylum or not. This terrible mistake demonstrates a drastic lack of thought and leadership by our President. Donald Trump continues to exploit racism and fear because his singular, perverse need is receiving love from his base supporters. We know that this group consists of maybe 30% of this great land, NOT THE MAJORITY!

Trump’s self-inflicted illusion is he alone can fix things. It’ a lie, just like most of what he says. The Donald manages to put a little piece of shit into everything he does, even his rare good plans. He is incapable of bringing our country together and that is exactly why he’s bad for America. He continually uses hate as a propellant, risking not only a potential fire but, worse, a mighty explosion.

Today, we learned that the White Supremacists who sponsored the rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last year have applied for a permit to rally around the White House this summer. Our Great Orange Leader will do nothing but sit back and laugh and laud the greatness of the First Amendment. Once again, those who want to stop the hate, the put downs and the pejorative attitudes will also have to march that day to match the crown size of the Neo-Nazis and Jew haters. We can only hope no one will get hurt.

And here we find another reason why Donald Trump is bad for America. He waits too long before addressing a real problem. He creates a negative atmosphere then does nothing to calm the waters or lead the country into compromise and betterment. He wastes time and money traveling to his rallies when he should be in the Capital working on challenges and constructive changes.

How do you tell a bullheaded, xenophobic old man that he’s making things worse? We learned this week that Trump believes nothing the polls or the press tell him. He has declared that media is bad and capable only of releasing “fake news.” He fawns over Fox News, but he will simply toss them into the fake news basket if they ever turn on him.

We have learned that his daughter and his wife convinced him to do something, but they are only a temporary relief from his bigoted mind. Watch, he will soon turn back to his in-house racists and fake bureaucratic bastards, John Kelly, Jeff Sessions and Stephen Miller, and follow their advice to fuck the immigrants.

Stephen Miller is the evilest one. I find it astonishing that his family is comprised of Ashkenazi Jews from Eastern Europe.  In the early 1900s his mother’s family emigrated to the United States from Belarus to escape anti-Jewish pogroms in Russia.

The very hate that tore apart Europe and killed millions of Jews in the 1930s is now being replicated by this young man, Stephen Miller. How does a 32-year-old political science major from Duke University become such an anti-immigrant racist? Hard to say, but if I could throw only one person from the White House Stephen Miller would be my pick to hit the road. And the ejection would be covered live on TV.

General John Kelly is a phony. He supposedly came into the White House to organize people and communication and bring order. He’s a failure. Some measure of military order would be good, but he has no power over Donald Trump. Kelly, hardened by his service and with roots in the reverse racism of the Irish-American community of Boston, will not serve his country well. He should retire and have a nice life.

Jeff Sessions has always been a typical old-school southerner who relishes a good “Negro joke” among close friends. He climbed the judicial power ladder with his short legs, while posing as a law and order guy for his own purposes. When a kid has their father’s name, it provides a built-in reason to look backward. Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III is probably no more liberal than his father, or his father’s father.

Each generation has a reason for rejecting progress. Alabama doesn’t allow a lottery, much less pharmaceutical marijuana. But rather than focus on Jeff Sessions’ home state, just look at his policies. They are further to the right than Donald Trump’s. Sessions just locked up innocent kids. And when people talk about how well those children are existing in their Wal-Mart prisons, our government pushes the same scripts old newsreels used to explain Japanese interment camps. Who are we?

The most important aspect of Donald Trump’s caving to pressure by signing an executive order is that he was able to slip a little piece of shit into his decree. Here is the turd-burger the President added to his order, “The Attorney General shall promptly file a request with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California to modify the Settlement Agreement in Flores v. Sessions, CV 85-4544 (“Flores settlement”), in a manner that would permit the Secretary, under present resource constraints, to detain alien families together throughout the pendency of criminal proceedings for improper entry or any removal or other immigration proceedings.”

The executive order is a trojan horse. Jeff Session is being asked to petition the court to relax the Flores decision, which would mean the children of undocumented border crossers and those who “broke the law” (the parents) can be held INDEFINATELY. With a stroke of his big, fat felt-tipped pen, our lunatic President has created his own private Gitmo within our borders.

Under the present Flores agreement, immigrant children can be held for only twenty days. A minor cannot be charged for crimes committed by a parent, but incarceration with a parent is tantamount to being held without a charge. Imprisonment without due process is against the law on American soil, as stated in our Constitution.

When Trump cries about our laws being so bad, he is railing against the Constitution itself. His treasonous propaganda shows no respect for law. We cannot sit back and let him do this. In the end, the law will have the final say and the Sergeant of Arms will come to the White House and remove Donald J. Trump from office. That perp walk will make America great again.

NO COUNTRY IS A MAN

Is Trump Really Just a Dictator with a Long Tie?

What are we missing here? The fear of Obama brought together millions of gun buyers, who bought weapons. In case you don’t remember, that paranoia about our first African-American President coming to get your guns never happened.

The word spread quickly through the evangelical communities of our great land that the only party that would protect their religious rights has an elephant mascot. That myth drove their involvement in shaping the political landscape by making a move to the far right. There should be a separation of church and state, but evangelicals don’t believe this Jeffersonian creed.

The other group of people who voted and made Trump the 45th President of the United States of America has been frustrated for decades because of a lack of protection for their jobs and livelihood here at home. We get this and, yes, we probably need to repair this problem in the boardrooms of America.

We now have a leader who truly believes that he, and he alone, can fix all the problems which have ever been created by the past administrations. According to our Great Orange Leader, everything that has ever happened in another era was wrong and helped “destroy” America. Thus, the need for this one man to “make America great again.”

The positive, long-term results of some of Trump’s accomplishments are overshadowed by his obsessive need to attack and tweet. His narcissistic personality sets the media agenda and gets in the way of his smattering of leadership achievements. While most people focus on the firestorms and eruptions from this self-centered demigod, he has brought about major policy changes that will affect America in deeply negative ways.

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room: immigration. America has always had a strange relationship with the rest of the world. The first fact is that many people love America around the world. They watch our movies and TV shows and they want to come here. They visit for vacation and sometimes they just stay. Our border to the south is a minor player in what the administration calls illegal immigration and drug problems.  There are millions of people who have come to America on airliners from other countries. Trump uses the building of a wall on the Mexican border as a visual to demonstrate his desires. Let’s not forget that the American drug epidemic starts not at the Mexican border but in our local pharmacies with bad doctors over-prescribing.

The big headline in the Washington Post this morning (5-9-2018) said, “U.S. embassy cables warned against expelling 300,000 immigrants. Trump officials did it anyway.” The burden that will be placed on the home countries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) people in the USA could be a diplomatic nightmare. Once again, Trump is using these executive orders to “clean up the neighborhood” without any understanding about how these moves could destabilize certain countries. War costs more than diplomacy and aid. That is what the Marshall Plan was all about.

Our Attorney General announced that families coming through Mexico because of the violence and unrest in their Central American countries will be divided and children will be taken away from their mothers and fathers. We seem to have lost our morality.

Trump is promoting an isolationist foreign policy. This President, without an end game plan, terminated DACA, walked away from the TPP (an agreement to reel in trade with China) pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord (an agreement to really clean up the world we live in) and now has ended the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the agreement between Iran and the United States, United Kingdom, Russia, France, China, Germany and the European Union. This was a campaign promise that Trump made and kept, without any long-range strategy other than his little round mouth saying he wants a better deal. Trump even used old data presented by the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, as proof that Iran is in violation of the agreement. This was the Donald’s “WMD” moment.

Trump has gotten rid of more people in the first year of his administration than any other president. He has slowly weeded out common sense thinkers and replaced them with people who agree with him. The real question is whether his actions make America safer or is the world more likely to blow up into proxy and real wars? Sanctions returned to Iran will only weaken European and Asian nations relationships. If you drink the Trump Kool-Aid, you probably believe his huffing and puffing rhetoric will keep our house safe. However, history shows that most of what the U.S. has done in the Middle East has failed.

Speaking on the Daily Show, historian Jon Meacham was rather positive about the power of the Constitution and how even a dipshit like Trump will be controlled sufficiently by time and the rule of law. I am a skeptic, believing Trump will move forward with renewed vigor after getting the three detainees released from North Korea and seeing slight improvements in his approval scores due to an upcoming meeting with Kim Jung-Un.

And what is the meaning of Russian oligarchs and mega-companies depositing large sums of money into the Michael Cohen-Trump slush fund LLC right after the election? It signifies that Trump was either using his lawyer to collect “pay-for-play” fees from companies wanting something, or Michael Cohen was using his proximity to Trump to create a business. The fact that the same account paid hush money to a porn star was Cohen’s big mistake. If a quid-pro-quo can be proven, those payments are bribes.

We must keep our eyes on the prize here. The reward will be a strong democracy not tainted by the aggressive actions of an unchecked President. Trump will probably not be impeached without strong evidence that he was involved in a conspiracy with Russia, but the people must check his bullshit and lies with clear minds when they go to the ballot box. The government that runs the greatest country in the world is in the hands of an amateur who thinks he can do anything. We must not let him ruin what centuries have built.

With all the possible successes of a strong economy and movement in the world toward a more peaceful climate, maybe we can get back to protecting the actual planet. Or am I dreaming?

DACA, AMAZON AND SINCLAIR

Confusion and Lies from a Desperate Donald

There is a funny episode in the original HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm in which Larry David hires a chef for his restaurant who has Tourette syndrome. This is the ailment which can produce involuntary tics and vocalizations, some of which include compulsive, obscene utterances. The chef turned out to be very good with food, and Larry wanted him to feel at home and stay on as his chef, so, Mr. David’s character convinces the customers to randomly scream out obscene words and phrases. It’s a very funny scene, but I am starting to see a similar plot playing out with our President.

Last weekend at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s club in West Palm Beach, Florida, the guests for dinner included Fox News’ Jeanne Pirro and Sean Hannity, former Fox News head Bill Shine, boxing legend and convicted and pardoned felon Don King, convicted felon and former New York City Police commissioner Bernard Kerik and the creator of the My Pillow company and “Made in America” activist Mike Lindell. The Donald’s guests, along with a Fox News report on a “caravan” of people fleeing Honduras moving through Mexico, sparked a weekend tweet storm that proves a link between all of Trump’s whisperers and his policy remarks and decrees.

Trump fomented, “Mexico has the absolute power not to let these large “Caravans” of people enter their country. They must stop them at their Northern Border, which they can do because their border laws work, not allow them to pass through into our country, which has no effective border laws. Congress must immediately pass Border Legislation, use Nuclear Option if necessary, to stop the massive inflow of Drugs and People. Border Patrol Agents (and ICE) are GREAT, but the weak Dem laws don’t allow them to do their job. Act now Congress, our country is being stolen!”

And so it begins, the twisted misinformation campaign to confuse more than enlighten, polarize rather than unite and push Congress without a roadmap showing where the President wants to go. His aggressive attitudes and distortions of the truth hurts him, hurts Congress, and hurts America.

This kind of tweet doesn’t help anyone: “DACA is dead because the Democrats didn’t care or act, and now everyone wants to get onto the DACA bandwagon… No longer works. Must build Wall and secure our borders with proper Border legislation. Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime!” No pun here, but his stonewalling reform to get what he wants with a wall is probably going to drive the far right and far left into their respective corners and mystify the moderators into inaction.

Trump feels the need to compliment the right-wing NeoCon Sinclair TV network and ignore the draconian methods of mass editorial control of their local TV stations. At the same time, Agent Orange was bad-mouthing Amazon as if it was some evil concept. Amazon, applying the same rules on the books to avoid taxes that the Trump Organization has been using for decades, is now seen by Trump as a treasonous company. In fact, no thinking person believes the cracked veneer of Trump’s logic in these attacks. They know Trump hates Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, because Bezos owns the Washington Post, the newspaper that uncovers leaks and points out the hypocrisy of the Donald’s administration.

It’s the same reason Trump pushed the Department of Justice to take up arms against the Time-Warner merger with AT&T. Republicans don’t usually rail against mega-mergers. In fact, they have promoted them in the past. So, why is a group like Sinclair allowed to buy up what amounts to 60-70% of the smaller market TV stations without challenge, while a merger of different class companies is being hassled? It’s all about who Trump likes and dislikes. Someone needs to check Trump!

It’s funny the way things work. Trump complains about how the FBI and Justice are so bad, but when he gets sued under the Emoluments Clause, the D.O.J. is defending him. Several hotel owners are suing the government and Donald Trump, claiming that the Trump hotel a block from the White House is causing damage to their businesses. They say it’s illegal scheme to make money for the President. This is probably not hard to prove.

The problem with most of what Trump said this weekend is that there is a little lie packed into every statement. He claims that people are trying to exploit DACA by coming into the country now. That is impossible. Trump claims that the post office is losing money because of Amazon. That is untrue. The United States Postal Service lost money before there was an Amazon and it will always lose money. It’s not because they are ill managed but rather because they aren’t structured as a typical capitalist company. At the end of each year, whatever money is left over in the USPS bank is taken back by Congress. The applied profits or cash flow cannot help them get off to a big start each year. They have raided that service and taken as much as $29 million from them for non-profit mail, while the USPS has put billions of dollars into their employee retirement fund each year.

Amazon turned to the USPS to help them with deliveries of smaller items but, more importantly, weekend deliveries. According to the New York Times, “…. in its latest annual report to the Securities and Exchange Commission, Amazon said it paid $957 million in income taxes in 2017. The company previously reported paying $412 million in income taxes in 2016, $273 million in 2015 and $177 million in 2014, according to the commission.”

According to CBS News, “Packages and shipping are one area that’s growing for the postal service, bringing in more than $19 billion in revenue last year even as the volume of letters and magazines declined. In fact, its projected revenue growth ’is driven entirely by increases in shipping and packages,’ the postal service said in its latest annual report.”

One of the reasons historians and political theorists will never see Trump as a serious President is because he doesn’t do his homework and uses lies in place of facts. He watches Fox News and takes their opinion and poorly researched news stories to write his tweets. He is totally under the rapture and control of Fox News. Donald Trump has become fake news and the worst president ever.
