Trump and Racism

Today, I just do not understand news accounts of Donald Trump calling
himself “least racist person. A man who bred contempt towards black
and brown people his whole life calls him “the least racist person” is
an anthema.
This is also the same guy who coined the term “stable genius”. I
believe that I can measure Trump’s stupidy in the selection of idioms
that he uses. “Stable Genius” strikes me as a nonsensical idiom.
Also, Trump calling himself “the least racist person” is the biggest
joke of all time.
I just saw a picture of Trump posting a full page ad in the late 1980s
over the five black men who were acquitted of a brutal rape in Central
Park. Trump wanted sent them those guys upstate and probably put them
back in the electric chair like the days of old in the South.
The way that he treated the poor Puerto Ricans in time of utter
despair with his refusal to do anything about the infrastructure
problem is also alarming. The “least racist person” and “stable
genius” who would go out of their way to fix the problem.
It also is telling that a person who contempt towards black and brown
people is when he decide to golfing on the very day that a man who
both the right and left revere for his stand on his civil rights.
Trump could have gone to Miami and made a showing at some
Miami-related civil rights celebration and than take the rest of the
afternoon off to go golfing. Perfectly fine. But this president
failed to do even the most basic tasks to demonstrate the he cares
about race.
So this “least racist person” is another tall tale invented by Trump.
If Trump were Pinocoho, I would not want to imagine how long his nose
would be.

Robert Jeffess says God Will Authorize Trump to Smite Kim-Jong Un

The Right-Scoop, a conservative leaning blog picked up this scoop from the fanatical preacher Robert Jeffess

“One of Trump’s biggest supporters, Pastor Jeffress, says that God has authorized Trump to “take out” Kim Jong Un.

God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil. https://t.co/6E60XLNVQP

— Dr. Robert Jeffress (@robertjeffress) August 8, 2017

“When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil. In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong-Un. I’m heartened to see that our president — contrary to what we’ve seen with past administrations who have taken, at best, a sheepish stance toward dictators and oppressors — will not tolerate any threat against the American people. When President Trump draws a red line, he will not erase it, move it, or back away from it. Thank God for a President who is serious about protecting our country.”

The problem is that a protracted war with that guy will too much bloodshed and send a fragile world economy into a massive recession. War is never worth it. Even with a fanatic like him.

It is probably better to accept that North Koreans need to be viewed as a rational player who wants control over the regime and wants the attention. I do not see that Kim Jong Un will want to see his iron grip of power seized from him by a foolish, idiotic war. The last country that seriously waged war was Germany who had the economic ablity to withstand a protracted war against the Western allies. If the Hitler did not have hubris of invading the Soviet Union and accepted rule over Western Europe with Franco and Mussloni as other rulers, the Third Reich could have theoretically won the war.

But Kim Jong Un does not have the industrial might of the Nazis along with a constrained view of war, he knows that he can only rule his “Hermit Kingdom” and that nuclear weapons are designed to beat the US and China at a game of high-stakes poker with North Korea being the winner with increased economic power by having an ICBM. Only a chickenhawk like Trump is willing to go all-in with Kim Jong Un.

And Jeffress with his apocalypse view would be thinking that Trump would be the vessel that would smite that the Hermit Kingdom in wrath of God’s judgment through the US army. Well, Jeffress, your view of God is completely wrong and will lead in a massive disaster. I am not saying that the fundie’s concept of God is wrong but rather, this specific interpretation of biblical eschatological viewpoint is playing with Russian rolleute. I think Jesus would have give him Mr. Jeffress a severe admoishment. While Mr. Jeffress is probably a believer, his theological views are so out there that I think that God thinks that he is nuts.

Louis Gomhert thinks that Obama is Some Batman Villia

Representative Louie Gomhert who is always known for saying stupid things has this to say about President Obama

Texas Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert picked a very Louie Gohmert way to end 2016.

Speaking on Fox & Friends on Friday, Gohmert likened President Barack Obama to the Batman villain Ra’s al Ghul for his handling of refugees.

A quick reminder: Ra’s al Ghul, in the movie “Batman Begins,” frees a prison full of dangerous criminals as part of a plan to destroy Gotham. And, just FYI: Ra’s al Ghul is Arabic for “head of the demon.”

Gohmert, known for some far out comments about his political opponents, claims Obama took direction from the Islamic State, who promised to deliver terrorists along with refugees.:

Are the Syrian refugees really criminal or people trying to flee a complex war that was started by the US and multiple actors in the Middle East.  To call them criminals is a baseless act

I do agree that there is plenty of Islamic radicals around but to call most Syrians criminals is an act of bullying in my opinion. .

Guns: A Personal View Based on CNN Comment on Youtube at Jason Bourne Movie

viewed this quote while watching a CNN video on Matt Damon’s new movie. The commenter states – “So tough yet he doesn’t believe in our 2nd amendment. He can watch the movie by himself.”. The reality struck me that I almost agree with 100% on Matt Damon’s view on guns. However, I was raised in a liberal household in a suburban area with parents who worked in education. My parents did not own guns and were never gun enthusiasts. Therefore, it is much easier for me to for gun control laws than the commenter is. However, I probably need to understand that commenter probably has a conservative view of the world and a strong view of personal liberty where a personal liberty is often defined by the ability to own any firearm that is permitted by law. I might not like that view, but i have to take into perspective that other people put so much emotional attachment into a symbolic ability to own firearms especially high-powered firearms. It is hard for a lot of people to learn that by not owning such high-power weapons that you are actually saving lives and not letting those weapons be sold in the marketplace and eventually to placed in the hands of criminals. Freedom to the own these weapons is more important for having sense of personal liberty and individual ruggedness than any potential impact in saving lives in some mass shooting.
Well, I can understand these people viewpoints but I respectfully disagree with them

My Two Cents on the Final Resolution on the Clinton E-Mail Scandal

t is clear that Hillary did not have criminal intent today in her actions but her actions shows a clear disregard for security protocols because she felt that the strict classification security proctols were too much of a hassle and she felt that she was above the law. Such does not show criminal intent in the slighest disregard, but clearly shows gross hypocrisy in the face of government security rules. If this is the case by her pattern of leadership, then the government needs to stop classifying so many documents and start to release more information into the public domain so the public can find what is going with the government. If you prefer to work in secrecy and yet do not follow the established security protocols, then the documents that the government should be claimed to be classified should be released into the public domain for scrutiny and transparency. It also shows the level of trust that we should put in the leader. For these reasons, Senator Sanders is the superior candidate because he respects the security protocols and at the same time would maintain open and transparent government. Unfortunately, we have a leader that prefers secrecy and does not obey the existing protocols. At least Bush and Cheney in this area followed the rule of law and ensure that proper protocols were followed with securing classified documents (even though they went way overboard in this area).
