The objectives within the mind of our demagogic President are easily surmised and determined. Trump’s ideas are firmly committed, resolute, and purposeful goals that he feels will change America and American history forever and for the better.
Trump’s immediate intention is to dispense with the three dozen moderates and boarder-liners he first mistakenly appointed during the campaign and in his first year in office, and thereafter order each replacement to support him in gathering a newer completely unopposed authoritarian administration. Trump does not want nor need media or public criticism of any kind, if he can possibly avoid clashes, because his agenda is to become the first democratically elected populous ruler-dictator in the history of the United States; that is with the assistance of his good friends on Wall Street, in the Pentagon, Zionist money, and every voter in his dedicated racially bias right-wing base.
It will be a historic moment when I am overwhelmingly reelected, he believes, “to continue my project to shephard our great nation on the path to further prosperity and expansion. Autocratic world leaders such as XI, Putin, Erdogon, and Duterte, will realize I am of their club and one of them. They will listen carefully to what I have to say and follow me, then the entire world will recognize the greatness of our magnificent nation and bow down to it, because the U. S. will maintain the largest most efficient economy, and the strongest military ever, as well the smartest people. They will have to, or else! “Yes, America wait, I am coming to lead you”.
The first people I will arrest will be Obama, Hillary, Comey, that deputy fella McCabe, and the entire damn staff of actors on Saturday Night Live who attempted to make me appear to be a silly fool. I will not forget Stormy Daniels neither…. that cheap slut.
Within days of his first inauguration Trump began campaigning for a 2020 showdown and later the big one, in spite of his repugnance and lack of overall moral appeal to many current voters, Trump will be the GOP presidential candidate for certain, and very possibly the winner in a nasty no holds bared tight race. His critics were wrong last time. Don’t count Trump out. The U. S. has entered a new direct confrontational Era.
It all depends though on a continued thriving economy, his bullying of smaller nations to do it his way over trade and American jobs. The White working class voted him in and he owes them. His handling of North Korea, China, and Russia is in the mix to a lesser extent. Trump surely will not be the winner should there be a severe economic downturn. But who knows? Trump’s hot air balloon and his buffoonery may be bigger and a more important factor. And in the long-term more dangerous than we realize.
As I wrote the last sentence a runner appeared over CNN; Putin seeks reelection after 18 years in power. I then had an immediate vision of America’s future, Trump seeks reelection after 18 years in power. Hmmm. Something to think about.
All the Best to you.
Not withstanding the good news, indeed great news, coming out of Asia these past couple days there is also what appears to be simultaneously, ominously, troubling events in the Middle East, and in U. S. Administration trade warnings to allies in South America and Africa that bear watching.
Firstly, the Pentagon revealed yesterday they have 10,000 anti-Syrian government rebel fighters on their payroll, and have requested Congress for an additional 30 million dollars in funding to support them. Moreover an expansion of this force is in the works. These American mercenary-style soldiers are often in direct confrontation with Syrian government forces, as well as Russian, Iranian, and possibly Turkish military elements. This could easily become a red flag, red line issue among the major powers involved in Syria.
Secondly in my post of four days ago I belatedly reported on Secretary of State Rex Tollerson’s first visit to South America in February as a veiled threat to five nations that have replaced the U. S. as their number one trading partner. with who else but, CHINA. That was enough for Wall Street and the Administration to send Tollerson for at least a look and leave. Rex warned those countries and others in South America not to trade with China and to stick with “old friends” because China is not fair nor trustworthy.
Number three, Secretary Tollerson visited Africa this past week for mainly humanitarian reasons yes, but did not fail to alert the natives the Chinese have implemented shoddy harbor expansions and provided corrupt loans to contractors within the continent. As an example of Chinese penetration they have aggressively constructed their first official overseas military base in Djibouti. hmm.
The old Western imperialist should welcome China into their club, France, Britain, the Dutch, and the U. S….but sorry China, in the West don’t do those ugly illegal things to poorer African nations; you are the actual evil one, so keep out of our spheres of influence. This is certainly bias and the epitome of hypocrisy.
All the Best to you.
It is apparent at this point President Donald Trump has accomplished a significant achievement to be shared with Kim Jong Un by merely agreeing to meet this year to discuss tensions between the U. S., South Korea, and North Korea that have plagued the crisis redden peninsula for more than a year. Both leaders have appear to have won with Trump getting the lion’s share of the credit for his bold efforts. I looks to be we are finally on the road, perhaps bumpy, in silencing threatening war drums.
The North is set to reduce its nuclear program and missile launches if allowed according to it own words. This offer places the ball squarely in Trump’s court, so will the president curtail the joint military drills with the South and give peace a chance? Quite probably he will over the next months as Trump will test Kim’s offer and proves his sincerity.
Another diplomatic victory like this one and Trump will be a shoo–in for the 2022 election and the next Nobel Peace Prize candidate. We’ll just have to wait and see.
As I wrote last year the sane approach would to hold a face to face meeting in Hawaii to resolve this crucial stand-off which affects the entire safety of the world. It appears Kim blinked first. The stringent sanction with the helpful assistance of China could well have been the turning point. The talks could be held in Seoul, but most likely on the DMZ. In the meantime both parties cool their heels until May.
All the Best to you.

Two weeks ago I promised to post a few words on the U. S. Secretary of State’s visit to South America, but unfortunately there were server difficulties lasting near a week, but here are those few words.
Last month Secretary of State Rex Tillerson completed his first trip South America with stops in six countries. The visit was not actually urgent, but necessary. Wall Street had impatiently demanded it. China had replaced the U. S. as their number one trading partner in five countries, Argentina, Columbia, Brazil, Peru and Venezuela with two others on the borderline of doing so. Also Rex stopped in at Mexico and Jamaica to reassure them of U. S. support in the ancient drug war. Rex cautioned the hosts the Chinese were not reliable in the long-term promising more than they could deliver, and it best to stay close to an old friend like America. (To some of those countries it seemed to be a veiled Trump threat)
Readers, after reading them I could not resist. Herewith reprinted are two letters gleaned from a weekly news magazine of which I agree with and believe you will too. Both happened to be from Time Magazine.
The Trump Administration plans to develop terrifying new weapons. World leaders fear we are on a dangerous slide into total annihilation of humanity. By lowering the threshold for using nuclear weapons, Trump’s new plan bellies any claim the U. S. is committed to arms control and nonproliferation. While we never miss an opportunity to waggle our fingers at other regimes developing and improving weapons of mass destruction, we never hesitate to squander taxpayer on our own.

Making America great again is a commendable goal for a country that is already the world’s foremost superpower. Its achievements in engineering, science, space and technology are the marvel of the world, but your article shows the darker side of this technology. Make no mistake, the developments of ‘tactical’ nuclear weapons, together with crippling sanctions, are not targeted to effect only chiefs of state and heads of governments— but also ordinary men, women, and children the world over. Makes me wonder whether this development will make America the Great Bully Again.
