Socrates! Donald Trump, China, Russia And Saudi Arabia Ticking Time Bomb:

Posted in Trump Ticking Time Bomb with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 10, 2017 by sheriffali

Socrates lived and died for Truth and Law; Donald Trump lives by Lying more and more! That’s why it’s not hard to guess why the Saudi crown prince has chosen to follow the Russian and Chinese road map, or why he has sought to consolidate power instead of sharing it.

 

Socrates lived his life as an endless examination of what is good and true and right, seeking neither office nor wealth; Mr. Trump is a know-it-all demagogue who treats the highest office as his right.

 

Socrates served his city as a soldier in war when called upon; Mr. Trump played the system — avoiding military service, exploiting legal loopholes and connections, amassing riches.

 

Socrates said he pursued knowledge because he knew nothing, and that people had to learn from experts, not follow the crowd. Mr. Trump proclaims himself the best at everything and gives the crowd what it wants; in order to make it his. He belittles experts, even his own country’s foreign service. “I’m the only one that matters,” he declares.

 

But Trump is also part of the story of Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince. By his own example — through his disdain for courts and for the media, through his scorn for ethical norms — Trump has cast doubt on the Western model.

 

Trump may even have encouraged the Saudi prince more directly. Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, a living embodiment of American nepotism, visited Riyadh for long talks — officially to promote Mideast peace, but perhaps business and politics came up, too — in the days before the arrest. The image of two princelings, scheming late into the night, makes a textbook illustration of the decline of American prestige and American values, even in a country that is closely allied to the United States.

 

Only time will tell what the future holds for America and the world as most Republicans remain grounded in their support for the most Treasonous, Corrupt, Self-Centered, Conceited, Pathological Lying Con Man, presently sitting in the “People’s Oval Office.

Republican Legislators Are Flies On The Excrement Of America’s 1% Rich; A Disease That Infects The 99%. Another Way To Put It is “The Republicans [GOP] Are Whores Pimping For The Top 1%!”

Posted in United States with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 11, 2017 by sheriffali

Dating back to 1981 to the present day, there aren’t anything worse than the Republican Legislators that have been bestowing more riches unto America’s top 1% while at the same time, ripping to shred America’s working class, Students, the Elderly and the most vulnerable.

 

If you are honest with yourself you cannot deny that all the Republican Party has been doing for the past 36 years is working 99% for the Rich and 1% for the working class. One can forgive the Republican Voters because after all, most of them are uninformed, ignorant, uneducated and brainwashed and trying to explain to them that they are suffering with the Stockholm Syndrome, they wouldn’t get it! There are no bona fide reasons for being uneducated in America, but that is what keeps the Republican Base. The GOP spend all of their time on the 99% advocating that they don’t need to go to college, because all they really need is a Gun in one hand and the Bible in the other.

 

In the final analysis, the Republicans combined with Donald Trump has really disgraced America and really brought the United States to its Knees. We have become the laughing stock of the world and basically, we have lost all credibility. We can no longer accuse any other country in the world of “rigged elections,” because with the Treason, Fraud and Corruption of the 2016 Election, America is stained for a long time and perhaps permanently.

Unprecedented Uncharted Waters – If it turns out that Special Counsel Robert Muller’s findings proves that Donald Trump, Trump’s Family, Trump’s Campaign and Republicans aided Russia in their ability to Weaponize the Hacked Information that enabled Trump into the White House and Congressional Seats to the Republican Party, and, if the US Supreme Court both Right and Left Wing do their jobs being the last Bastion in protecting America’s Democracy, then beyond any doubt, Hillary Clinton should be the “Legitimate President” and not Mike Pence, subsequent to Trump’s Impeachment or Resignation.

To go into all of the “Legal” details would fly over the heads of a large section of the American people, not because of education, but solely due to “Ignorance of the Law” that is complicated even for people that are Lawyers. So, everyone has to take off their Political Hats of being Republicans or Democrats and for once, be an American First! “America’s Democracy, Credibility, Electoral Process And America’s Future Is At Stake.”

 

 

[Research] “The Framers’ intentions for this clause were twofold: to prevent a society of nobility from being established in the United States, and to protect the republican forms of government from being influenced by other governments. In Federalist No. 22Alexander Hamilton stated, “One of the weak sides of republics, among their numerous advantages, is that they afford too easy an inlet to foreign corruption.” Therefore, to counter this “foreign corruption” the delegates at the Constitutional Convention worded the clause in such a way as to act as a catch-all for any attempts by foreign governments to influence state or municipal policies through gifts or titles.[3]

 

The Title of Nobility Clause is a provision in Article ISection 9, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution,[1] that prohibits the federal government from granting titles of nobility, and restricts members of the government from receiving giftsemoluments, offices or titles from foreign states without the consent of the United States Congress. Also known as the Emoluments Clause, it was designed to shield the republican character of the United States against so-called “corrupting foreign influences”. This shield is reinforced by the corresponding prohibition on state titles of nobility in Article I, Section 10, and more generally by the Republican Guarantee Clause in Article IV, Section 4.[2]

 

No title of nobility shall be granted by the United States: and no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state.”

The Media Is Not “Fake News,” However; Almost All Of The Media Work For The Same Owner, “Mr. Avarice Mendacity”

The Media Is Not “Fake News,” However; Almost All Of The Media Work For The Same Owner, “Mr. Avarice Mendacity”

 

“The present state of the US Economy and the good jobs report, all of the “Credit Still Goes To President Obama, however, “The Media Credits Donald Trump, even though that despite Trump and Republicans are in Control of the White House, Senate and House of Representatives, they haven’t passed a single legislation, other than Trump’s unhinged Executive Orders.

 

The only accomplishments by Trump and Republicans have at this time are; Scandals, Lying, Obstruction Of Justice, Treason, Take Away People’s Health Insurance and give Trillion Dollar Tax Break to the Rich, they all add up to be Parasitic Parasites.” [Sheriff Gerry Ali]

 

[Media] “The economy is emerging as a bright spot for President Trump as he struggles to move his congressional agenda amid a series of controversies.

 

The S&P 500 is up more than 12 percent since Election Day, unemployment has reached a 16-year low and economic growth in the coming year is expected to reach 2.3 percent, more robust growth than the 1.6 percent it grew in 2016.

 

Trump sought to play up his handling of the economy again on Friday at an event to end a week meant to highlight his efforts on legislation to fund new infrastructure projects across the country.

 

“We are here to think big, to act boldly, and to rise above the petty partisan squabbling of Washington, D.C. We are here to take action. It’s time to start building in our country, with American workers and with American iron and aluminum and steel,” Trump said in a speech at the Department of Transportation.

 

 

Trump has often gotten in his own way when it comes to publicizing his handling of the economy.

 

This was supposed to be the administration’s “infrastructure week,” but it was almost entirely overshadowed by the appearance by fired FBI Director James Comey at the Senate Intelligence Committee.

 

The controversy surrounding Comey’s firing has led to a new drop in the polls for Trump, whose approval rating in the Real Clear Politics average is just 39 percent, with 55 percent expressing disapproval.

 

After James Comey’s testimony eclipsed Trump’s planned infrastructure week, he and first daughter Ivanka Trump will embark on a road show this week highlighting workforce development and job creation in the Midwest, including new German-style apprenticeship initiatives. http://thehill.com/policy/finance/337203-economy-emerges-as-bright-spot-for-trump

The Larceny Of Donald Trump And The Republicans Dishonesty, Is A Disgrace To The Human Race, As Their Lying And Corruption Explodes All Over The Place!

After 240 Years of great sacrifices by so many to create a Country, America, to being the “greatest Nation on the face of the Earth,” just how did Donald Trump ended up in the Oval Office, breaking every law imaginable and a Party, the GOP, not only supporting this Parasitic Parasite, but as Paul Ryan has just done, they, the Republicans are making excuses for this Bigoted, Fascist, Racist, Bankruptcy Swindler, Groper and Con Man, enabling Trump to continue his assault on the United States, while at the same time, elevating Vladimir Putin in all of his egregious machinations.

 

Republicans spent 5 years and tens of millions of dollars of Taxpayers money investigating one horrible incident, Benghazi, but yet these same despicable and deplorable, unprincipled and unpatriotic plagues obstruct and openly hinder any and all investigation into the Trump Russia Collusion and every other illegal Act, that Trump continues to perpetuate on America and the American people.

 

Perhaps, just perhaps, good will come out of this evil; “The Impeachment Of Donald Trump And The Destruction Of The Republican Party,” thus giving America a new and more legitimate path forward.” “Let us keep Hope that this shall be so.”

 

“What Oxygen Is To The Lung, Such Is Hope For The Meaning Of Life.” Don’t ever give up on hope that we can have better tomorrows.”

FIVE Arab States Cut Diplomatic Ties With Qatar That House America’s Largest Military Base; And Donald Trump Takes Credit!

Posted in United States with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 6, 2017 by sheriffali

It is amazing that the Republican Congress and other Republican Politicians are still standing behind Donald Trump when in fact, everything Trump is doing is damaging to America and gives Vladimir Putin What he want. For the longest time Putin unsuccessfully tried to stop Qatar from Housing America’s Largest Military Base in the Middle East, but Putin has finally succeeded via his Puppet, Donald Trump.

 

Subsequent to Donald Trump’s Middle East Trip, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, United Arab Emirates [UAE] and Yemen not only broke Diplomatic Ties with Qatar, but also cut off Land, Air and Sea to and from Qatar.

 

[NYT] “ EgyptSaudi Arabia and three other Arab countries severed all ties with Qatar early Monday, in a renewal of a four-year effort to isolate it and in a sign of a new boldness after a visit to the region by President Trump.

 

In an abrupt and surprising move, the five Arab states not only suspended diplomatic relations, as they have in the past, but also cut off land, air and sea travel to and from Qatar. All but Egypt, which has many thousands of people working there, ordered their citizens to leave the country.

 

Qatar, like other monarchies in the Persian Gulf, is a close ally of Washington, and it hosts a major American military base that commands the United States-led air campaign against the Islamic State.

 

As such, the feud among regional allies threatens to stress the operations of the American-led coalition and complicate efforts in the region to confront Iran — but could also be a heavy blow to Tehran’s regional ambitions, if Qatar is forced to sever ties.

 

Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson offered to broker the impasse on Monday in the hope of preserving the Trump administration’s efforts to create broad coalitions against Iran and terrorist groups in the Middle East.

 

“We certainly would encourage the parties to sit down together and address these differences,” Mr. Tillerson said.

 

The severing of all connections by Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen created an immediate crisis for Qatar. Qatari diplomats were given 48 hours to leave their posts in Bahrain, while Qatari citizens were allotted two weeks to depart Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.”

Under Donald Trump And The Republican Controlled Congress America Started Moving On A Path Away From The Peace, Prosperity And Stability That Have Defined The Past 75 Years

Posted in United States with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 6, 2017 by sheriffali

[WAPO] “In economics, as in life, things often take longer to happen than you think they will and then happen faster than you thought they could. So it may turn out with the catastrophic international economic policies of President Trump. It is possible that last week will be remembered as a hinge in history — a moment when the United States and the world started moving on a path away from the peace, prosperity and stability that have defined the past 75 years.

 

For all that has gone wrong in the past three-quarters of a century, this period has witnessed more human betterment than any time. The rate of fatalities in war has steadily declined, while growing integration has driven global growth and improvement in life expectancy and living standards. Progress is too slow, and not well enough shared, but Americans have never lived so well. This has been driven by remarkable developments in human thought, especially in science and technology, and a relatively stable global order that has been underwritten by the United States.

 

 

Will these trends continue? Optimists have suggested that despite the revanchist and often anti-rationalist rhetoric of his campaign, Trump has in the international sphere surrounded himself with rational establishment advisers and has either retreated or been stymied by Congress on proposals such as launching trade wars and building walls.

 

Until last week, they had a reasonable argument. No longer. We may have our first post-rational president. Trump has rejected the view of modern science on global climate change, embraced economic forecasts and trade theories outside the range of reputable opinion, and relied on the idea of alternative facts rather than evidence-based truth.

 

 

Even for conservative statesmen such as Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush and Henry Kissinger, the idea of a community of nations has been a commonplace. Come now H.R McMaster, national security adviser, and Gary Cohn, director of the National Economic Council, who have been held out as the president’s most rational, globally minded advisers.

 

They have taken to the Wall Street Journal to proclaim that “the world is not a global community” and advanced a theory of international relations not unlike the one that animated the British and French at Versailles at the end of World War I. On this view, the objective of international negotiation is not to establish a stable, peaceful system or to seek cooperation or to advance universal values through compromise, they wrote, but to strike better deals in “an arena where nations, nongovernmental organizations, and businesses compete for advantage.”

 

In service of this theory, the president in the past two weeks renounced any claim to U.S. moral leadership by failing to convincingly reaffirm traditional U.S. security commitments to NATO and abandoning participation in the Paris global climate agreement. The latter is probably our most consequential error since the Iraq War and may well be felt even longer.

There will be consequences to all of this, as there were to the pursuit of short-term advantage rather than systemic stability at Versailles. One does not need to subscribe to pessimistic versions of Graham Allison’s “Thucydides Trap” as it relates to worries about how China as a rising power may fill the vacuum left by the United States.

 

How, after the events of the past week, can U.S. adversaries and allies alike not follow German Chancellor Angela Merkel in concluding that the United States is now far less predictable and reliable? How can the responses be other than destabilizing?

 

It is essential that leaders in U.S. society signal clearly their disapproval of the course the administration is taking. History will judge poorly business leaders who retain positions on Trump administration advisory boards because they hope to be in a position to cut favorable deals. Elon Musk of Tesla and Robert Iger of Disney have taken the correct and principled stand by resigning their presidential appointments. More should follow.

 

What is to be done? The U.S. president is not America. The world will be watching to see whether Trump’s words and deeds represent an irrevocable turn in the nation’s approach to the world or a temporary aberration. The more that leading figures in U.S. society can signal their continuing commitment to reason, to common purpose with other nations, and to addressing global challenges, the more the damage can be contained. And, of course, Congress has a central role to play in preventing dangerous and destabilizing steps.”
