I have viewed four out of the last five Trump campaign rallies, and found them to be magnificent propaganda, brilliantly performed and executed, and also extremely effective. Significant political and private problems hamper Trump yes, but do not count this president out of the midterms or in particular a second term bid. If Mueller and the rule of law does not relieve him of office with a smoking gun he is on his way to a close razor-sharp presidential win in 2020.
Trump talks for America and Americans, long neglected, the worker middle class public that have been abandoned by a greedy political and financial system, rigged mostly by Wall Street financial institutions and headed by elites similar in nature to Donald Trump.
We cannot doubt Trump is a super nationalist and patriot for the American cause and his own ambition. He understood well the past flaws of both the GOP and the Dem administrations. Trump is highly critical of their laxity in allowing America to be on the losing end of trade negotiations, give-a-ways, job promotion, and open immigration without proper safeguards, that have been for the benefit of the short-sighted two parties involved and proclaimed for temporary political gain to contain and remain in power
Democrats, liberals, of all stripe must realize the business of America is business and they among other groups are on his side in full support. Trump has built a solid following from and with three pillars of political strength. They like this guy in office, huge Wall Street tax cuts, increases in the defense budget, and those wealthy Jews who have Trump’s domestic and international back covered. Expansion within the economy and job markets in particular is going well and in some quarters the best in American history. Can the untamed jungle ask for anything more?
Recent history (1918) indicates a political showdown is in the works, let us guess in the timeline of five-six years, capitalism will win over the splintered socialist, liberalist, environmentalists, and those independent advocates of truth and justice. The press, academia, and the public will be looking in from the outside peering in confused as to how it all came about. Dangerous examples of this phenomenon are illustrated in the rise to power by Hitler and Mussolini, and it can happen in America more quickly than ever before. The structure is there: it needs only convincing and voters to be won over by a Trump.
Should this occur American nationalists, fascist, will be delighted for years until the hammer falls. and the world order will turn against the economic and military power of the U. S. and then, then in all probability … those unintended consequences that just seem to happen will happen. (?) As I write this Russia, China, and Mongolia are planning the largest joint military exercise since WWII.
Currently it depends, can Trump keep the economic fire growing and glowing? You can be assured his fervent supporters will do anything within their means to keep the economy going forward: Bailouts, scapegoats, and promises. Here we come.
Yesterday, I turned over an old scratch pad and discovered on the backside a couple of notations I had jotted own a year or more ago.
A friend in Georgia had written “Terror is the war of the poor, and war is the terror of the rich.”
And I had noted from a CNN interview with a former U. S. Secretary of State who stated “The U. S. believes China is preparing greater political and military expansion in the South China Sea and economicexpansion in Africa.” Chinese military aggression is of course the most paramount of the issues. I have been waiting for China’s aggress.
YES, China is an evil aggressor. Didn’t they invade Tibet one of their ancient sparsely populated provinces in October 1950 and displace the child Dalai Lama? China is a wicked grasping nation.
We all know it. They’re ruthless, and very warlike. Not at all like the peace-loving U. S.
Speaking of peace, just this morning channel.newsAsia.com reported ‘North Korea media calls on the U. S. to drop sanctions. ‘This must be the reason Trump and Kim have recently discussed a second summit… in the future.
Iran’s President Rouhani says the U. S., Israel, and Saudi Arabia are in a holy alliance to undermine the and change the Persian regime. Seems Washington is taking the lead to do that, as Israel throws gasoline on the fire. Iran is a menace in the Middle East no doubt. Who said they own the Persian Gulf anyway? Further noted on the verge of severe sanctions the Rial is now worth four cents against the U. S. Dollar.
The Canadian – Saudi feud is silly, almost childish, it’s all over the Canadian media criticism over two Saudi anti kingdom women jailed having done too much Facebook blogging of their views. And on to Turkey where the U. S. sanctions the country over the jailing of one, one Christian preacher. The preacher, preacher Andrew, who since october missed Christmas joy, and appealed to President Trump to free him. He just happen to be from a voter block near and dear to Donald’s supporters? The Turks claim they have proof he has participated in terrorist activity. Why cannot Canada criticise for change in Saudi domestic affairs and the U. S. can in Turkey? Is it Saudi Arabia is our new ally and Turkey is not.
Trump and the world are getting more ridiculous all the time.
Here in Indonesia things are a Pop-in and going quite well. The GDP grew to five percent last year and will do better this year as the country continues to export its large resources of palm oil, minerals, oil and gas, and housemaids to giants like China, India,and Japan.
