• Quick Update, End-of-the-World

    March 29, 2017

    Posted in: Economy, Iran, Trump

    Well, just checking in from my bunker. After taking inventory of my canned goods and ammunition, I thought I’d look into how some of the media’s predictions have been playing out over the first weeks of the new administration.

    — No nuclear wars.

    — No wars with China, Russia, Iran or North Korea. Same wars Obama started or escalated still going strong.

    — No diplomatic breakdown because of Taiwan. No change in U.S. “Two China Policy.”

    — No new wars anywhere.

    — NATO and alliances with Australia, Japan, etc. still intact.

    — No mass resignations among government employees. CIA, NSA, and State Department still open for business.

    — No coups.

    — 1st Amendment, and others, still in place.

    — No impeachment, no invocation of Emoluments Clause, 25th Amendment, formal charges of treason.

    — Congress has approved Cabinet nominees.

    — No roundups of POC, women, journalists, LGBTQ, deportations are still below Obama-era headcount of 2.5 million deported, highest under any presidency.

    — Stock market did not crash.

    — No psychological break down by Trump leading to anarchy, war, etc.

    — No signs of capitulation to Putin.

    — U.S. justice system and courts still open and functioning.

    I will keep an eye on all this, and update as necessary.

    BONUS: I don’t like Trump. This post is a criticism of his critics and the media for all their idiot fear-mongering.

    BONUS BONUS: Someone will respond “Yes, but it’s only been _____ weeks, so you never know.” This is true because no one knows the future, but it is also irrelevant because I am writing about what has already (not) happened.

      Breaking “Fake News…” * Trump accused of having sex with daughter!* Bill Clinton responds… “I did not have sex with that women”. He seems depressed. Wage Peace. The D and R’s are BS.

      Trump’s daughter would absolutely kick Bill’s ass if he tried… Besides…. She’s to old for him.

      Hitler took power in 1933 and didn’t start WW II until 1939.
      Are we to wait around patiently until Trump has full control of all levers of power before we start to get worried?

      Peter, here is a good topic for your sequel to GHOSTS:

      Across large swaths of the country, disability has reshaped scores of mostly white, almost exclusively rural communities, where as many as one-third of working-age adults live on monthly disability checks, according to a Post analysis. The increases have been worse in working-class areas, worse still in communities where residents are older, and worst of all in places with shrinking populations and few immigrants.

      Trump supporters take note.

      We plead the 25th

      Assuming Flynn doesn’t plead the 5th

      Congress can appoint a body with no medical expertise whatsoever. Because the 25th Amendment does not require a medical diagnosis or consultation with medical professionals, Congress could even appoint members of its own ranks to the panel. This approach could give Congress the ability to enforce its own criteria for presidential fitness. For example, Congress could deem the President “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office” if he is unable to be trusted with classified information by intelligence agencies. Congress could even use the threat of removal to exercise additional leverage over the President’s actions.

      Former national security adviser Michael Flynn denied in an FBI interview last month that he had discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia with Moscow’s ambassador to the United States, contradicting transcripts of intercepted communications between the two men, the Washington Post reported

      Felony conviction can mean Goodbye pension, unless Flynn strikes a deal.

      Flynn: It was all Trump’s idea. He told me to do it. That’s why he waited three weeks to force me to resign. He and that lunatic Bannon were trying to find another excuse.

      Flynn’s flipping takes the wind out of gasbag Nunes pathetic attempt to blowup a federal case out of the unmasking of “innocent” US citizens caught in NSA intercepts of foreign communications. Flynn nor Nunes apparently never heard of Stellar Wind.
