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.
If you read the whole interview you’ll see that she is as delusional as he is. She claims he can use his power as commander-in-chief to direct the military to build a wall. Nope, that’s not going to happen. The military would need to have funds given to it by Congress for this task. does she really believe that the military has money sitting around not being used for the troops and all of the defense department toys that they love so much. The defense department would never ever take money away from an aircraft carrier or a jet fighter to build a wall along the southern border that is not necessary.
I wasn’t sure if Trump’s would see her interviews so I made sure he could read the headline, I translated into Russian for him.
When the asshole who is in the White House was running for president he kept saying how much he loves the gays he said it over and over again. It’s why he is gotten the moniker of Liar in Chief.
He doesn’t want people to get any rights other than the ones who voted for him. He doesn’t care about the 60% of the United States did not vote for him. Look what he’s doing to California. He is a disgrace and I wish the network’s would stop covering every morsel that comes out of that man’s hole in his face. I’m sorry I usually I’m not this angry but this is beyond the pale.
The Israeli military was one of the first to allow gays lesbians and transgender to be in their military. Nobody can say that the Israeli military is weaker for it. As a matter of fact the statistics show that militaries that are inclusive have a better moral and longer stays in the military. Our own pentagon is not in favor of this. The Tangerine nightmare in the White House is playing to his base and stirring up anti-gay sentiments in those 40% that voted for him. Shame on him.
John McCain, the self-described Maverick, must be having quite a hard time right now. In the face of overwhelming evidence that Donald Trump is not a friend to Veterans John McCain remain silent. When Donald Trump said he had donated millions of dollars to Veterans groups it was a lie. He only donated money wants the lie was exposed. He has attacked a gold star family. He has accepted the Purple Heart from someone and said it wasn’t that hard to get. What else must Donald Trump do to get John McCain to say enough?
If there was a moment in history that we need Hillary Clinton in the white house it is today. Turkey is not only pivotal in our relationship with the Middle East but as a NATO Ally they are where we store our moments including stealth weapons and drones. Instability of this kind needs to have someone who knows how to handle it. Only Hillary Clinton has the criteria to replace President Obama. I don’t think Donald Trump’s having negotiated the Miss Universe pageant in Russia stands up to her years as Secretary of State and u.s. senator.
When we signed the trade agreement with China, they got hooked. When we signed NAFTA, Mexico got hooked. When the Soviet Union started to talk to us, they got hooked. Cuba and Iran now join the league of nations that are hooked on United States of America. The culture of the United States is infectious. It’s aspirational to the rest of the world. And I am so tired of the naysayers saying that America is in at sunset years. We have a satellite the size of a grand piano orbiting Pluto all made in the USA. General Motors is about to launch a car next year that will get 200 miles on one charge and with the tax incentives will cost to consumer only $20,000! The reason the ayatollahs sign this agreement is simply because seven thirty eight percent of the population of Iran wanted this Agreement signed. Having a ran as a frienenemy is much better than having them has a full flight enemy They want peace, and so should our leaders. Leaders who push for war or just pushing to maintain their coffers full of money from the military industrial complex. AVB
Governor Chris Christie, like me, has never served in the military. That alone has made me think hatd regarding whether we should be sending troops in harms way. He doesn’t seem to have the same opinion. I think it is time for the United States to take a step back from the Middle East and allow the inevitable religious war to happen. Ensuring Israel’s protection and those of its surrounding friendly neighbors should be the only area of the Middle East that United States keeps a stake in. It is time to let the Shiites and Sunnis have there internal jihad and we should let them have it. We have meddled in the area and lost way too many precious individuals to continue doing so in the future. Governor Chris Christie does not seem to understand that and that does not bode well for his abilities as the President of United States. AVB
