Trump: Only ‘stupid’ people, fools oppose better Russia ties.

New York • President-elect Donald Trump said Saturday that “only ‘stupid’ people or fools” would dismiss closer ties with Russia, and he seemed unswayed after his classified briefing on an intelligence report that accused Moscow of meddling on his behalf in the election that catapulted him to power.

Trump is absolutely correct about the “stupid people or fools” thing. Our ties with Russia should be as close as our ties to China and those countries representing power in the Pacific.

On the other hand, the Atlantic isn’t really as important as the Pacific, at the moment, so screw you Putin.

So yeah. There are many people of Russian ancestry, both legal and illegal immigrants within our nation, that Trump is concentrating on, but China and countries with petrol dollars are the ones Trump  is forgetting.

It could be a Trump hotel in Russia is worth two in the bush that is China and the countries with petrol dollars.

Perhaps what Trump is not understanding. Russia, without a Military Industrial Congressional Complex (MICC) is a country of an economy of petro dollars.

Perhaps he should observe Russia leaving Syria.

Trump ally Carl Paladino: I was ‘emotional’ when I wished Obama dead and insulted the first lady

His policy is to look the other way while innocent people were murdered and starved. I view Barack Obama as a traitor to American values,” said Paladino.

I don’t know. Congress has the right to declare war, and ask Obama to lead it. Did they even ask?

In other words, I am not sure Congress can actually start a war, but they could at least find the funds to fight it, then ask Obama to lead the fight into Syria.

Sounds like Congress might share the same American values as Obama.

I suppose Carl will be going after them next.

China’s Threat to the U.S.

Extraterritoriality. The recent repression is worse because China’s officials are attempting to extend it beyond China’s borders.

Exactly. The Oversea-Chinese did not extend China’s borders, they worked beyond them, and, in such a position, they were considered the Child of the Parent.

Now positions are changing. More exactly the posture is changing.

The Parent can now be observed to be moving and posturing the boarders (much like the Europeans moved the boarders into North America and postured much of the world in their image), especially the South China Sea and Pacific (Actually Austrailia, forget Taiwan and the Phillipines, they are lost).

The world (and specifically the Trump administration) are going to be dealing with the Parent of the Children now in the South Pacific.

In that context and content, the Americans will be blind to the change of relationship between the two. This new relationship between China and the US will be different than what any other US administration has dealt with before.

War will be determined by the interest, honor, and fear this new relationship has on the environment that the Chinese now occupies, and especially now that the Parent instead of Child is the one who is the focus of that distribution.

War between China and the US is probably enevitable, because the Trump administration, at least those producing policies instead of tweets, are blind to change, because of their culture.

Bruce Schneier: ‘The Internet Era of Fun and Games Is Over’

“I don’t like this,” he concluded. “I like the world where the internet can do whatever it wants, whenever it wants, at all times. It’s fun. This is a fun device. But I’m not sure we can do that anymore.”

Truer words never spoken.

The verdict for those armed militants who took over a federal building is white privilege in action

The verdict is completely absurd.

Absurd, maybe. But there seems to have may been some government informants present at the stand off, and that may have been what this verdict was all about.

In that context, it may be accurate to say that the Bundys “hired’ enough informants that the government was paying for the standoff, and, in at least one case, for the repair of vehicles and body armor. So, yeah in that context, it was a militia standoff.

So while the Bundys may have been some great inspirational leaders and strategist–it is my opinon that without the help of the U.S. government, their “stand off” would have been less than successful.

Some white privilege, yes?

In this case those recieving, so called, “White privilege” may, to some degree, be called suckers, by non-whites, as their movement was not so much “white” as federal.

At least it looks to me like the government had the Bundy’s backs, and they were in no danger from the feds, unless they  tried to run road blocks and such.

Which, in itself, is a privilege, but I wonder what their father would say, if he knew?

Good help is hard to get? 🙂

Former Pennsylvania attorney general is due to be sentenced

Kane, 50, argues that the loss of her career, law license and reputation is punishment enough. She has asked a judge in suburban Philadelphia to sentence her to probation or house arrest so she can be home to raise her two teenage sons.

However, prosecutors call her crimes “egregious” and will push for jail time. They say a paranoid Kane ruined morale in the 800-person office and the wider law enforcement community through a calculated scheme to embarrass rival prosecutors who had left the office.

Let’s hope Trump can also claim the loss of career, licenses, and reputation as punishment enough for ruining morale by his implied threats not to concede power if Hillary is elected. He definitely doesn’t deserve to do hard time, because, if for no other reason, during this election he has helped make the U.S.A. more transparent to more Americans, which is an American tradition.

There is not much that anybody can say about punishment if Trump is elected and the USA becomes Russia, 1995. Russia’s structure was completely broken by the collapse of its economy, and something similar could happen in the U.S.A. unless succession is quick or he concedes power quickly.

War (which is what succession is) tends to destroy markets as much as it builds new ones given time. By not conceding power, Trump is giving more time to those who want to destroy the structure of our country.

You might also say that not conceding tears out a huge piece of fabric from some of the greatest structure that the U.S.A. has known. And in the context of fabric, sometimes one can observe structure, because of its transparent covering, and observe it for its strengths and weaknesses. At other times one can’t observe how fragile a structure is, because of a non transparent fabric that covers it, and that nontransparent blanket is called security.

The U.S A.’s structure is, in part, covered in its citizen’s right to vote, and that right to vote gives us transparency.

By not conceding, Trump is saying that we have lost the right to vote, if he loses his campaign. It is a close call, but I don’t think we are there yet, not really even close if you think about it.

Voting still matters. You can tell that it still matters, because both competitors are pretty evenly matched, and what they try to get away with means something matters, at least to someone.

It is that “3rd party” that everyone is talking about that is having a hard time breaking out. One problem in these elections is that both parties are treating each other like the third party, and neither one is.

Getting back to my fabric metaphor (that our country is wrapped in), sometimes tearing off a non transparent fabric reveals great strength inside. I think  the latest estimates I read on the subject says that this election found 30% of Americans are Trump supporters. If that is true that is over 100 million people. Under the blanket of security, I don’t think most Americans knew there were that many.

So yeah, Trump’s non-conceding the election results could give our country great transparency, but does anyone really want Trump to take us there, considering his outlook on life?

I mean, with his values he may be a great one to lead the U.S.A through a 1995 Russia, but does anyone, including Russia, want us to go there?

Maybe so. The vote is still out.

Does McCain Have a Shred of Honor Left? – The Atlantic

If you have any views on McCain’s career or latest ploy, especially if you can defend him, send us a note and we’ll post: hello@theatlantic.com.

You gotta  understand that most likely McCain believes Pence will be in charge of policy overseas and domestic and that Trump will preserve the post of the Commander and Chief for himself. There has been stories of that degree for other Trump prospect for the job of V.P..

So if you are McCain who do you want to appoint the next judge, Clinton or Pence?

I am sure McCain believes that he is more than able to handle a Commander in Chief Trump, as he would have been, if there was a V.P. Palin.

Pense is another matter.
