    Guest Post: Trump, – and why not? by Jeremy Mitchell/FB 

    “I listened as they called my President a Muslim.
    I listened as they called him and his family a pack of monkeys.
    I listened as they said he wasn’t born here.
    I watched as they blocked every single path to progress that they could.
    I saw the pictures of him as Hitler.
    I watched them shut down the government and hurt the entire nation twice.
    I watched them turn their backs on every opportunity to open worthwhile dialog.
    I watched them say that they would not even listen to any choice for Supreme Court no matter who the nominee was.
    I listened as they openly said that they will oppose him at every turn.
    I watched as they did just that.
    I listened.
    I watched.
    I paid attention.
    Now, I’m being called on to be tolerant.
    To move forward.
    To denounce protesters.
    To “Get over it.”
    To accept this…
    I will not.
    I will do my part to make sure this great American mistake becomes the
    embarrassing footnote of our history that it deserves to be.
    I will do this as quickly as possible every chance I get.
    I will do my part to limit the damage that this man can do to my country.
    I will watch his every move and point out every single mistake and misdeed in a loud and proud voice.
    I will let you know in a loud voice every time this man backs away from a
    promise he made to them. Them. The people who voted for him. The ones who sold their souls and prayed for him to win.
    I will do this so that they never forget.
    And they will hear me.
    They will see it in my eyes when I look at them.
    They will hear it in my voice when I talk to them.
    They will know that I know who they are.
    They will know that I know what they are.
    Do not call for my tolerance. I’ve tolerated all I can.
    Now it’s their turn to tolerate ridicule.
    Be aware, make no mistake about it, every single thing that goes wrong in
    our country from this day forward is now Trump’s fault just as much as they
    thought it was Obama’s.
    I find it unreasonable for them to expect from me what they were entirely
    unwilling to give.

    The Trump’d up travel mess 

    It is difficult understand why we have this embarrassing Trump-caused travel mess all of a sudden!
    The first line of defense against airborne terrorists should be the visa process!
    If no visa, you won’t fly. And to get a visa, you have to prove that your background is clean, and that you have no adverse associations. You must account for what you intend to do here in the US and whom to visit, etc., especially for applicants from “trouble” nations. If it doesn’t check out, you won’t get a visa, and you won’t fly!

    If anything turns out fishy, the claimed contacts here in the US should be checked out. Thoroughly!
    Put the burden on the applicants to prove they are OK, and hold each country’s US Embassy responsible for verification and background checks before a visa is issued. Whatever time it takes, a month, 3 months, forever, – so be it.
    To visit the US is not a right for anyone, it is a privilege, and you have to prove you are a worthy visitor! The burden of proof should be on the would-be travelers, not on us!

    On the other hand, if you are a US citizen or holding a green card, you get back in without a hitch. A green card holder has already been found OK. If he/she commits a crime, the card and the holder go!

    Trumpy’s voter fraud fantasy 

    Donald Trump now wants to investigate the voter fraud he claims made him lose the popular vote, while all previous studies have shown insignificant number of fraudulent votes cast, with no impact on the final results. With heavy fines and the risk of being deported, who would be dumb enough to cast an illegal vote? If that dumb, it is far more likely the illegal vote would be cast in favor of Trump!

    A much more important issue is Republican initiated voter suppression, which makes it harder for voters to
    exercise their constitutional rights. Here, a thorough, in-depth, independent and non-partisan investigation is called for, with results publicized no matter which way they go. How many were prevented from voting, and who would they have voted for if they had been able to cast their vote?
    Do such unsuccessful voters have a claim against their state for being denied their constitutional rights to cast a vote unobstructed, and without unnecessary hardship? Any reprisals due for those who set up such barriers?
    I am confident that the results of such an investigation will please the majority of voters, – and expose just another of Trump’s numerous lies!

    Trump’s Backwards Cabinet 

    This is the embarrassing gallery of superstitious ignorami Donald J. Trump has picked for his cabinet:
    Carson: Evolution is from the Devil!
    DeVos: Put God in schools!
    LtGen Flynn: Christianity is at war with Islam!
    Perry: Fire? Pray for rain!
    Pompeo: Evil is all around us until the Rapture!
    Perdue: Drought? Pray for rain!
    Pruitt: Hand out bibles in schools!
    Sessions: Secular people can’t understand the truth!

    And those characters are supposed to “Make America Great Again”?
    Instead, they will set us back and “Make America Regret Again”, – not to mention making us the laughing stock of the developed world!
    As if we haven’t had enough of Republican administrations and the damage they cause! Haven’t we seen how backwards and outright dangerous they are? When will we learn? The Trump administration may even turn out to be worse than the one preceding President Obama’s progressive reign, which leaves a question of when we can expect to be back on track again to a better, safer and more equal society? Will we ever? Or, perhaps that train has left for good?

    Trumpy lying, – or not? 

    All the talk about President-elect Donald Trumps lies, reminds me of George Costanza on the Jerry Seinfeld TV series: “A lie is not a lie if you believe it!”
    So, in all fairness, let’s give Trump the benefit of doubt: he may not lie, but only be so incredibly dumb and uneducated that he actually believes all the nonsense he comes up with, whether that is President Obama’s birth certificate, scores of Muslims cheering on 9/11, – or an avalanche of other nonsense he makes up.
    A glaring difference between Trump and his lying Republican predecessors, though, is that
    his lies have surfaced before his inauguration, while for example George W. Bush’ lies about WMDs in Iraq, and Nixon’s lies about not monkey-wrenching the Paris peace talks, only became painfully apparent too late, resulting in unnecessary loss of thousands of lives around the world. And, that’s no lie!
    Do we learn from history, – or do we need to have our noses rubbed into the mess now building up before we can smell what is coming? Not enough yet of the mess Republican administrations always make? How slowly do we learn? Then again, it took Donald Trump 5 years to understand what was abundantly clear to most of us, that President Obama was born in the US. Or, did he lie about that, too, just to score a cheap point among his intellectually challenged, racist followers? Makes you wonder, – which is something everybody should do!

    Putin outsmarting Trumpy? 

    President-elect Donald Trump keeps praising Putin for not retaliating against President Obama’s hacking actions against Russia, claiming “I always knew Putin was very smart”.
    All that means is that Putin has said something nice to tickle Trump’s fragile , ever-hungry ego, – traditionally the easiest way to fool fools.
    The more important question is whether Trump is smart enough to understand that Putin just takes his time before he reacts, – a reaction that is not likely to be in our favor.

    For more insights into Trumpy’s lies, bizarre behavior and disturbing lack of qualifications for the US Presidency, refer to “Article-Links”.

    The Final Solution 

    Dear Red States:
    We’re ticked off at your Neanderthal attitudes and politics and we’ve decided we’re leaving.
    We in New York intend to form our own country and we’re taking the other Blue States with us.
    In case you aren’t aware, that includes California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota,
    Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and the rest of the Northeast.

    We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation and especially to the people of the new country of The Enlightened States of America (E.S.A).
    To sum up briefly:
    You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states. We get stem cell research and the best beaches.
    We get Andrew Cuomo and Elizabeth Warren. You get Bobby Jindal and Todd Akin.
    We get the Statue of Liberty. You get Opry-Land.
    We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom.
    We get Harvard. You get Oral Roberts University.
    We get 85 percent of America’s venture capital and entrepreneurs. You get Alabama.
    We get two-thirds of the tax revenue. You get to make the red states pay their fair share.
    Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the Christian Coalition’s, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms.

    With the Blue States in hand we will have firm control of 80% of the country’s fresh water,
    more than 90% of the pineapple and lettuce, 92% of the nation’s fresh fruit,
    95% of America’s quality wines (you can serve French wines at state dinners),
    90% of all cheese, 90 percent of the high tech industry, most of the US low sulfur coal,
    all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools
    including Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.

    With the Red States you will have to cope with 88% of all obese Americans and their projected health care costs, 92% of all US mosquitoes, nearly 100% of the tornadoes, 90% of the hurricanes, 99% of all Southern Baptists,
    virtually 100% of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.

    We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.
    38% of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62% believe life is sacred unless we’re discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44% say that evolution is only a theory, 53% that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals then we lefties.
    We’re taking the good weed too. You can have that crap they grow in Mexico.
    Sincerely,
    Citizen of the Enlightened States of America
    (JLG, Internet)
    Oh, by the way, – you can keep Trumpy, too, while the majority of us will elect the best qualified, best educated and informed, most even-tempered, least ego-maniacal, research- and science-oriented, secular president we can find.

    Trumpocrazy coming our way? 

    While there are some clear differences between Republicans and Democrats at the core, we can argue about whether we have a democracy or a republic, or whether there is any difference at all. That the Founding Fathers wanted us as far away from the old European monarchies as possible, should be no ground for much argument.

    However, if Donald Trump really gets elected, despite efforts to redistribute electorates in some states with questionable results, we need a new term. What about “Trumpocrazy”?
    You won’t find it in dictionaries yet, but “Trump” is defined as “an advantage involving surprise”, “Trump up” means “fabricate or invent … accusations, excuses, etc.”, while “Trumpery” is defined as “worthless finery, delusive, shallow”.
    The latter part, “crazy” is defined as “insane or mad, foolish, extremely enthusiastic, unrestrained”.
    Therefore, the term “Trumpocrazy” is introduced if the uniquely unqualified Donald Trump
    should, heaven forbid, end up as our next President, – an unprecedented dent in our otherwise respectable
    political history.

      Pretty clever. Do you have an idea as to how to get this creative term adopted? Perhaps just feed it to all of the Leftie media: newspapers, MSNBC, ABC, etc. Possibly it will end up in Webster’s and the Oxford English.
      As to Trump being unqualified….well, we’ll see.
      His clownish showman’s act got him to where he is. That was not by accident.
      Maybe as he adjusts to putting on his presidential hat, his showman’s hat will fall off.
      I certainly hope so, and time will tell.

      The Progressives will continue their outrage no matter what he does…that is a given.
      But he may wind up doing a good job of turning the nation away from its path toward progressive wishful daydreams…he isn’t stupid…and I wonder if the impulsiveness is just part of the showman’s act.

    Trumpy’s recount fear 

    Republican boisterous presidential candidate Donald Trump kept claiming that the election was rigged and that he wouldn’t accept the outcome, – unless he won.
    Now that it is over and it looks like he is the winner, he goes ballistic over the recount effort planned for the swing states with the most suspicious outcome.
    Sounds like he knew something, but wasn’t quite sure it would work, and now that it did, he’s afraid it will be exposed. That could be very embarrassing, of course.

     
    • Al Ward 5:14 pm on November 28, 2016 Permalink | Reply

      HRC conceded the election to Trump and in her speech graciously requested that everyone should keep an open mind regarding his presidency (what an accomplished actress she is).
      Now the truth of what HRC really thinks is shown by her letting her people go along and join with Jill Stein’s ridiculous recount circus.
      What this appears to be is just another Democrat fund raising effort. To find the truth, follow the money.

      How much better off Trump would be if he just ignored this recount silliness. It should be beneath him, unworthy of his attention.
      But being Trump, that doesn’t seem possible.

      • Jorg Aadahl 7:13 am on November 29, 2016 Permalink | Reply

        I agree completely with you re. your last part, – Trump just can’t help himself. So typical, too, to reverse himself, this time from ridiculing any recount effort, to turn around and claiming that millions of illegals voted against him! Like so much else from him: grabbed out of thin air.
        To be fair, Hillary Clinton graciously accepted the surprising outcome initially, but why not support a recount effort started by others when so many suspicious circumstances emerge? If it turns out that the initial results don’t change, fine. But if is found that the outcome should be different if irregularities are accounted for, why not? And especially in a case like the current situation, where a uniquely unqualified, self-centered egomaniac, a liar with a shameless history of personal behavior is about to assume the most important position in the world, – every possible effort should be employed to keep him out of a position that very possibly could turn out to be disastrous. We have just been through 8 years with another unqualified, unelected Republican president, who did so much damage that it took President Obama another 8 years to partially get us out of the ditch. Haven’t we learned yet?

    • Al Ward 11:58 am on November 30, 2016 Permalink | Reply

      Speaking of going into a ditch and not having learned anything, I see that today the progressive congressional nitwits re-elected Nancy Pelosi as leader of the minority party. If you look across the country you see Democrats in their weakest position in decades. Not just the US Congress, but also governorships and state assemblies. It appears that California’s Pelosi will continue to lead the Democrat charge to oblivion.
      Thank goodness that all that remains of HRC and her supporters is a floundering around of pinning pathetic hopes on recounts.
      Thanks to the election of the Great Showman, Trump, the SCOTUS is safe for a generation.

    Flunking history 

    Haven’t we learned anything from the 2000 presidential election, when Al Gore with the most popular votes lost to George W. Bush, who “won” electoral votes due to a messy Florida count, and SCOTUS intervention.
    We have suffered through the results of that mistake, with predictable and preventable 9/11, unnecessary wars, unsettled Mid-East issues, and tanking of the economy, just to mention some of the misery that could have been avoided if the person with the most votes had won.

    And now we’re doing it again! Unless something sensible is done with the electoral votes on December 19, the candidate with the most popular votes will lose to a far less qualified, and very risky, candidate, who is already way down the path to making “America Hate Again”!
    With Internet, TV, radio and newspapers covering everything across the land, the electoral vote system has long since outlived its usefulness and recently only resulted in putting the lesser qualified candidate in the most important and powerful office of the world.
    Four years under Trump will only set us back further, while there is still work to be done to fix ‘W”s mistakes.
    Haven’t we learned anything?

     
    • Leo 4:59 pm on July 20, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      SCOTUS did not help out Bush during the Florida count. The federal courts attempted to intervene in attempt to help Gore and they were slapped down. They did not have the authority to get involved, but once again the corrupt activist judges on the left attempted to abuse their positions.

      Did you really just relate 9/11 to the election of Bush? Where did you get your history? CNN?

      Speaking of history you should really read the federalist papers and educate yourself on the Constitution. Perhaps you will stop crying about the EC once you understand our history and why we have it and why it is needed.

      • Jorg Aadahl 2:11 pm on July 21, 2017 Permalink | Reply

        How in the world can you get it so totally wrong? It was indeed the Supreme Court that intervened in 2000 and stopped the Florida re-counting that might have helped Al Gore, not the other way around! You are right claiming that the court shouldn’t have intervened, except they did so to help Bush, not Gore, who got the most primary votes, while the outdated Electoral system gave it to Bush, unfortunately. It looks like Republicans cannot win without the Electoral College, or without voter suppression. You may also recall that the conservative judge Sandra O’Connor was the fifth and deciding vote against Gore, but later regretted what she had done when she realized what a mess Bush had created, – a mess so severe that it took someone with President Obama’s capacity and insight to get us back on track again, – an accomplishment especially admirable when we consider how the Republican-infested Congress obstructed him every which way they could imagine.

    Electile dysfunction 

    Considering the importance of electing the best person as President of the United States, I find it very disturbing how arbitrary the entire election process was! Besides Donald Trump being uniquely unqualified for the job of POTUS, not to mention his habitual lying, total lack of respect the world over, his bankruptcies, rape charges and behavior unbecoming our most import and visible representative, – so much seemed left to chance:
    1) What would the outcome have been without a third party player like Gary Johnson, who for some crucial states received more votes than the difference between Trump and Clinton?
    2) What impact did voter suppression have? It is a fact that lines were longer, voting machines fewer and voting periods shorter in some predominantly Democratic areas. Voter intimidation may also have played a role, especially against minority groups and the disadvantaged, directly in line with what had been promoted by the Trump campaign beforehand!
    3) Was there interference from foreign nations, like Russia, or tampering with voting machines here and there?
    4) Hillary Clinton, Al Gore and Barack Obama all had more popular votes than their opposing candidates, while both Gore and Clinton lost out on Electoral votes, for various reasons. About time to abolish the Electorate, especially in a situation where the majority of voters wanted the far more qualified candidate?
    5) Donald Trump has numerous lawsuits hanging over him, including the Trump University scandal to begin later this month, besides dozens more.
    6) What was the impact of FBI Director James Comey’s e-mail interference during the last few days before the election?
    7) What was the impact of Donald Trump’s sudden Bible waving, claiming that book was even better than his own, – which someone else wrote? That mock act had an instant impact on the evangelicals, who flocked to Trump, while conveniently ignoring his utterly immoral life.
    8) What if Trump’s tax returns had been revealed, as has been customary?

    All-in-all, way too arbitrary election for the most important office in the world, – for which Hillary Clinton would have been elected if it hadn’t been for the electoral college! About time to abolish it!

    Election rigged? 

    During the campaign, Donald Trump kept insisting that the system was rigged.
    Looks like he was right! Perhaps he knew something hidden from the rest of us?
    To third party ignoramus Gary Johnson, who received more votes than the difference
    between Trump and Clinton in certain crucial states, I would say: “Happy now?”

     
    • Al Ward 6:10 pm on November 11, 2016 Permalink | Reply

      The system is rigged according to how the Founding Fathers intended. The Electoral System deliberately gives more weight to the voters in low population states. The more populous your state, the less your vote is worth regarding election of the President. It was set up to protect the interests of the smaller states.
      Hillary’s popular vote margin is due to nothing more than California’s population. Same happened with Al Gore. If his (small) home state of TN had voted for him, he’d have been president.

      In a related topic, I saw remarks by Harry Reid and Elizabeth Warren on today’s news.
      They were disparaging Trump, saying disgusting things as foul or more-so than anything said by Trump about American politicians. What a nice way to welcome the President-Elect.
      Quite an irony that Trump owes his success to people like those two…any voter who is not a flaming progressive finds them utterly out of touch with reality and a danger to the nation.

      Another irony is the actions of the idiots in the streets violently demonstrating to protest the election results. They are demonstrating one of the phenomena that got Trump elected…mindless, lawless and violent rebellion which does nothing other than upset the stable elements of society…such as Trump voters.

    • Al Ward 11:11 am on November 14, 2016 Permalink | Reply

      On the other hand it was gratifying to hear HRC’s gracious concession speech and also Obama’s remarks wishing Trump well for his coming presidency.
      It is going to be very interesting to see what happens when Trump ascends to the throne being vacated by Obama. To quote Obama,”Elections have consequences.”.

      It is embarrassing to note that most of the above facts, accusations and allegations apply equally to the Clintons, and there are almost unlimited quantities of circumstantial evidence so supporting (see the book “Clinton Cash”, see Bill’s approx. $800,000 payoff to one of his female accusers, etc. ).
      Hard evidence is hard to come by (they are both, after all, extremely sly lawyers) but there is some, thanks to emails (e.g. the one to Chelsey from Hillary regarding the Benghazi terror attack), thanks to the statements of FBI Director Comey, thanks to Wikileaks, etc., etc.
      There are 320,000 Americans, and Donald and Hillary are the only options for POTUS???

        I have to agree with you that the options we are left with, are rather embarrassing for a country like the US! However, Hillary’s somewhat silly mistakes can hardly be compared to Trump’s life of bankruptcies, cheating, tax evasion, lies, unauthorized p-grapping, and now even rape of an underage girl. And, while Hillary has a track record of public service, and is no doubt qualified for the job of POTUS, Donald Trump has lived a self-serving life and is clueless as to what the job requires, – not to mention how dangerous such an ill-tempered and easily provoked character would be with the power that comes with the way-over-his-head job he is foolishly seeking.

    Donald Trump, Republican presidential hopeless, a self-centered egomaniac, cheater and tax evader, with uncontrollable hands around women, is thanking exhibitionist, pedophile and certified sleaze bag Anthony Wiener for his unintended help in the election, moving him closer to the White House and the most important position in the world, where his fiddling hands could mean the end of it for us all.
    Can we as a nation sink any lower politically?

    Trump to his speech writers after the AL Smith Memorial Dinner: “You’re fired!”
    Speech writers’ response: “Thank goodness!”
    Democratic voters: “Thank you, Trumpy speech writers! Well done!”

    Rigged election? 

    Republican presidential hopeless Donald J. Trump keeps insisting that the election is rigged.
    He may have a point: First of all, too many informed, educated voters are backing his opponent, and not enough intellectually challenged registered voters!
    And if that’s not enough to skew the election, many women shy away from him just because he has a reputation of being a groper, especially of better looking women. Also, most Latinos flock to his opposition, just because he has ridiculed them as a group. Not to mention the media, going for his vastly superior and more qualified opponent, and instead ridiculing and making fun of him! How unfair, and clearly rigged against Trumpy.
    In all fairness, Trumpy has assured us that he will accept the outcome of the election, – provided he wins. In which case the election would have to be rigged.

    Trumpy, – genius, or crook? 

    Republican presidential hopeless Donald Trump is quick to call himself “brilliant”.
    However, it doesn’t require a “genius” to find and interpret IRS publication 536, which simply states that if your deductions for the year are more than your income for the year, you may have a net operating loss (NOL). An NOL year is the year in which an NOL occurs.
    You can use an NOL by deducting it from your income in another year or years. That’s what Trump did, – all he needed was a tax accountant with some basic understanding of the tax code, – perhaps that’s all he needs to feel like a “genius”.

    However, one of the big mysteries about Trump’s 1995 tax returns is how he managed to run up such an insane tax loss ($916 million), when so many of the losses related to his business implosion of the early 1990s ended up being borne not by himself, but by banks and other creditors that forgave Trump’s debts or otherwise didn’t get paid back. In other words, did he himself really lose some $916 millions, or did someone else incur the losses, or are they simply paper losses? That’s the question that IRS investigators really ought to look into.
    In my humble opinion, when past losses are used to offset future taxable income, the dollars must be of the same kind, – real, and relating to the same person or business entity, and not imaginary, fake or carried by others.
    Could that be the reason why Trumpy is so afraid of showing his tax returns?

    Guest post: Christian values, by Marc Perkel, Gilroy (LTE, SF Chronicle Insight 10/16/2016) 

    I’m somewhat surprised that Sen. Ted Cruz is sticking with Donald Trump after all the horrible stuff that Trump did to Ted Cruz personally. Trump accused Ted Cruz’s father of being a conspirator in the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy and attacked his wife as being too ugly to be first lady.

    Ted Cruz is supposedly a Christian and yet he doesn’t have a problem with Trump going after married women while his pregnant wife sits at home, or talking about grabbing women by the crotch because he’s a “star” and he can get away with it. If this is what they call “Christian values,” all I can say is, “Thank God I’m an atheist!”

    Vetting whom? 

    Republican presidential hopeless Donald J. Trump has been calling for deep and extreme vetting of immigrants.
    How about a more extreme vetting of Republican presidential candidates, – especially a frivolous one who has been bragging about vetting attractive females, – rather extremely deep?
