My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
These people were played by Donald Trump. Just like Nazi Collaborators in World War II who were fooled by Hitler. I have no love lost for these people. They went in thinking that they could change the mind of a demagogue. I called that a Fool’s errand. He had never intended on his softening. His choices to bring in Roger Ailes and Breitbart founder told me that he wanted to continue down his white supremacist theme. It’s too late for these people to resend their support and leave this so-called Hispanic Council for Trump. Trump spews hatred and these patsies fell for it. Watch how they will no longer be on cable news because the Trump machine will silence them.
On a day that’s Donald Trump filled the news media with Spam, this should have been the headline. Donald Trump could go flying to the Moon and back but he will not win if voting is not restricted by Republican laws aimed at minority communities. Even a supreme court with only eight members saw how long these voter ID laws are. This election is going to be won at The Ballot Box and not in Trump’s media extravaganzas.
Today was a day that will be more pivotal than Trump’s speech and trip because people will be able to vote against him.
The only time that Donald Trump has spoken up regarding climate change was when it was in his best interest. In a filing with the Scottish government asking for permission to build a higher sea wall to protect his golf course his attorneys mentioned the fact that climate change was raising the levels of the Seas. Now he thinks that he can solve California’s drought. The only way to solve California’s drought is for the world to understand that we are at a precipice and are about to collectively fall into it if we don’t dramatically change the way we do business. 2016 has had 8, yes 8, 500 year floods in the United States alone. Donald Trump in his only interview on climate change looked like a kid who had not prepared for his science project. He said that climate went up and down up and down and there was nothing we could do about it. He was more upset about the fact that he could no longer use a hairspray that was more effective. He actually said he could not understand how when he sprayed hairspray in his “sealed” apartment it would affect the ozone layer. I guess Donald Trump doesn’t breathe the same air that we all do. His lack of knowledge and his unwillingness to listen to scientists as opposed to his handlers frightens me. I am 62 years old and I know I will see changes in the climate but I feel so so sorry for those young people who are going to have to pay for the mistakes being made right now by politicians.
He may called the most honest Hillary Clinton crooked Hillary but Donald Trump is a crook. Not only did he have young girls, as young as 14, work illegally but what he did to them is unconscionable. He charged them $1,600 a month for a bunk shared in a room with 4 other girls. At the time the average furnished studio apartment in that part of Manhattan when for $1345 a month! One young lady who worked for him for two years and did some major fashion spreads and it up only earning the total of $8,000 after he took all his fees. Modeling agencies are in the business to make money but not to steal money from young and inexperienced girls. This is just one more Brick in the Wall that tells me that Donald Trump is a crook. Don the con.
One has to wonder if Donald Trump plans to charge Mexico for the trip. For a man who claims he doesn’t want to pivot towards a more presidential temperament he sure is trying every trick in the book. This is so obvious that it won’t work. Also this has to be angering his alt-right or white supremacist base. In any case one cannot say that Donald Trump has not made for an interesting campaign. I just wish it would be over and he was gone out of our lives. Unfortunately, I don’t think that he’ll disappear like Romney did after the election.
When political pundits called the Republican Presidential primary roster the clown car they weren’t too far away from the truth. Maybe next Rick Santorum can pick his sweater vest to Barnum & Bailey Circus. They are making the American political system a joke. A reality show joke.
The two players in this game of Espionage are China and Russia. Donald Trump owes Millions to China and has some weird love affair with President Putin in Russia. So if there’s going to be some raking of the election it’s going to be in Donald Trump favor. I’m not a conspiracy theorist but when the FBI says they’re worried I get worried. I think that Trump has been stoking the fire bring the elections so that when it happens he will look less likely to be a culprit.
We’ve all heard the expression The Boy Who Cried Wolf. I think that Donald Trump is that boy. Maybe Donald Trump is planning to rig the election but not in the way he keeps yelling about. I think he wants Russia to make sure he wins this election. He’s a bad poker player because now all eyes will be on this election and whether or not there is any tampering to it. Donald Trump is a bad player hand does not deserve the office of the presidency. He is cheated his way through life and now he wants to cheat himself into the White House. He’s letting his Russian handlers put him in there. And then I doubt we’re going to be seeing anything about America being great again.
What a contrast. One candidates has lived his life by hiring people and eventually never paying them what he had promised. The other candidate comes from a family that if one of their customers had reneged on a contract could have meant ruin. I hear the Press say how much Americans hate both candidates for president this time around. I don’t understand it. You have one man in Donald Trump who has been a crook all his life. And you have a woman in Hillary Clinton has devoted her life to helping others. Everyone keeps forgetting that the Clinton Family Foundation is a charity. It’s not just a charity in name only, it helps millions of people across the globe. It has brought the cost of a day’s worth of AIDS medication less than a dollar per person. Next Tuesday, the day after Labor Day, the Taj Mahal Trump casino in Las Vegas is closing. 3000 people will be losing their jobs. Do you think that Donald Trump is going to be losing a penny in this transaction? I know he’s not. So remember to tell your friends that if they think Trump is a good guy what would have happened to their parents or to their family if they had an employer or a customer then reneged and did not pay them. In what Financial straps would they be in? Remind them that and say this is the man that they think should be president.
Let’s call, and love this turn of a phrase, a spade a spade Steve Bannon is a white supremacist. Being a white supremacist comes with some baggage. Usually you are anti-Semitic, borderline psychopath, some self-hatred and not very good at parties. So, when you read the court documents that say that he was mad at his wife for sending their children to school that had Jews because Jews raise whiny brats that should not come as a surprise from a white supremacist. This alt-right name is similar to how conservatives have changed words so that they sound more palatable at the dinner table. So let’s get are dictionaries straight. Alt right means white supremacist. Pro-life is someone who wants they have too much to do with a woman’s body. Death tax is attacks that doesn’t click in until the inheritance is over 5.4 million dollars. But conservatives love changing words around and ALT-right is their newest and greatest hit. We used to call them the KKK, neo-nazis, skinheads and the like but now they homogenize the band called alt-right. It’s time that we write into our television stations and newspapers and other media outlets and the man that they stop using this alt-right and start calling it what it really is white supremacy. Donald Trump seems to pick them really well from a doctor that looks like he may be creating a Frankenstein monster somewhere to his new field operations manager that was fired by, of all things, Chris Christie over Bridgegate. If I were Donald Trump I would go into his campaign’s human resources department and scream at the top of my lungs “You’re fired!”.
