I think the bills proposed during the Trump years have to be scrutinized with a fine tooth comb. He lies like a rug. He has already claimed wrongly that his win in the election was reflected by reversal of Ford to build cars in Mexico. That is a complete fabrication. There has to be strong analaysis of any bill in Congress during these years.

What did happen after Trump's election is the collapse of the Mexican Peso and it's economy. Also the complete abandonment of government bonds by Wall Street. There are recorded effects of the Trump election, but, it has nothing to do with Ford Motor Company.

He is a liar. He will grab the imagination of any and all Americans when he can to benefit his image in the presidency.

In days following the election Donald Trump stated, the protesters "...don't know me." There are multiple Donald Trumps? I don't think so. I think there is a Donald Trump that will seek to build an identity pleasing to Americans while dealing unthinkable deals out of the Oval Office. And it may be that Americans welcome the lies, too.

No one wants to be reminded their vote was cast wrongly.

"When we believe the best of people, we let go of each thing they do that is hurtful to us. And we choose to think things like, 'I don't believe they meant to hurt me.' 'Maybe they're having a bad day or don't feel well.' 'They probably don't even realize how they sound.'"

Spoken by Joyce Meyer (click here)

She is a familiar face to many. She is a woman preacher on television that often speaks to concerns of Christian women. Ms. Meyer states frequently we make choices TO WHAT WE THINK AND BELIEVE that effect our lives. She believes in empowerment of women.

The FBI's damage to the Democrat Party was palpable.

This is not sour grapes. This is not the brilliant RNC. This is only one opinion I stated, but, it is completely reflected in polling agencies all over the country. This is just an example. This opinion of this media service was stated either the same day or the day before I did.

November 8, 2016

...After suffering a bloody October, (click here) where all of the business mogul's positive momentum from September was undone, he climbed again in the national polls over the last two weeks of the campaign, while Clinton faltered following a series of deeply damaging headlines, most notably the reopening of the FBI's investigation into her private email server. Trump goes into election day edging out Clinton in some key battleground states, including Nevada and North Carolina, and leads by 3 or more points in Iowa, Arizona and the traditional swing state of Ohio. The tightly contested swing state of Florida is a virtual dead heat, with Trump barely edging Clinton by 0.2%. He has also closed the gap significantly in Pennsylvania, Colorado and Michigan, but remains down by 2, 3 and 3.4 points in the states, respectively....

At the time Donald Trump became a candidate for President I stated not to dismiss him as a serious contender. I stated within the first day or so of his candidacy in the primaries he would be carrying new voters to the election. 

I was not wrong. I was correct. I had warned the DNC to seriously campaign against him and they did. It wasn't until Comey came out with his repeated RNC rant about emails that HAD NO BASIS OF CRIMINALITY (not once but twice) did the Democratic momentum fall flat. 

Comey is the issue. He sabotaged a healthy DNC campaign. There is nothing to realize about the 2016 election, except, Comey's deliberate sabotage as pressured by ? Wikileaks ?. Really? The Russian leaking of totally beneign emails is all that? The FBI?

I made it perfectly clear random classified documents show up in places where they should not in all other administrations. The few Hillary Clinton emails marked with a small c was human error and nothing more. That is a fact that should have been reflected in the FBI actions from the beginning of the investigation of the Clinton server. But, the repeated nonsensical committee hearings and the appearance of the FBI not conducting itself in a 'common sense' manner as Americans would and all the other mess that goes along with political tension continually removed validity from the standing of Secretary Clinton.

In comparison, her marathon hearing about Benghazi was completely unnecessary, but, she was determined to relieve the concerns of Americans. That is a great women. She was completely victorious in ending the scandals drummed up by FOX News and continued in political dogma at the hearings. She was victorious. The ONLY OTHER THING to knock Hillary Clinton from the grace with the American people was a stupid scandal about a private server and a few random emails classified with a "c". 

The campaign against Hillary Clinton was sexist and included the sexist treatment by the FBI carried out in the authority of it's director. She was made to be perfect. That is sexism and the FBI enforced it and destroyed the momentum of her campaign and that of the DNC candidates as well. Even the Democrats that were elected to the US House and Senate had a degree of diminished votes compared to earlier weeks before the election.

The FBI sabotaged Hillary Clinton over emails.



The polls across the USA prove it.

There is a statistical proof to that conclusion.

Trump is not an innocent person in turning violence loose in the USA.

White Ethnostate?


White Ethno-theocracy.

Lock step. 

"Christian Identity" (click here) is the name of a religious movement uniting many of the white supremacist groups in the United States. Identity's teachers promote racism and sometimes violence. Their roots are deeply embedded in movements such as the Ku Klux Klan and the Nazis. They consider themselves true Israel and view the Jews as half-devils and arch enemies. They believe all but the white race are inferior creations. Identity's religious views are bizarre and occultic, and their view of history is often informed by conspiracy theories. Identity's use of the name "Christian" to promote racism and violence is blasphemous. Jesus Christ as redeemer of all races is God's supreme answer to Identity's outrageous claims....

Kindly reflect on the movement into "Christian Identity" during the Bush Administration. Supporters of the administration were called, "Bushies." There was blantant religious discrimination within the staffing of the White House. There are multitudes of examples where "Christian Identity" was enforced throughout the time of the Bush administration. For Christ Sake, the Air Force Academy was densely populated with "Christian Identity." There were military commanders seeing Jesus' face in clouds as they flew in USA military jets.

There are problems, still today. That consolidation of "Christian Identity" will never be validated by well known religious leaders. "Chrisitan Identity" is based in Neocon standards and domestic aggression against those that think differently.

Congratulating Donald Trump (click here) for his victory in the US presidential election, the Vatican secretary of state expressed hope that people would work together “to change the global situation, which is a situation of serious laceration, serious conflict.”

Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Pope Francis’s top aide, spoke about the election early on November 9 during a meeting at Rome’s Pontifical Lateran University. The Vatican then released a transcript of his remarks, Catholic News Service reports.

“First of all,” he said, “we respectfully must take note of the will expressed by the American people in this exercise of democracy that, they tell me, was characterised by a large turnout at the polls.”

“We send our best wishes to the new president that his administration may truly be fruitful,” the cardinal said. “And we also assure him of our prayers that the Lord would enlighten and sustain him in his service to his country naturally, but also in serving the wellbeing and peace of the world.”...

Look, the KKK is tolerated in the USA through the First Amendment. Why would it be a surprise that a ruthless business tycoon use the same strategy for election into office? He carried the White Supremists in his coattails. The First Amendment guarantees DIVERSITY in our society. It should not be suprising that minority interests do make it into the majority when it is the "President's Voice" that carries the message.

Trump stated in the Leslie Stahl interview for any violence to stop. It isn't. Why? Because it is too late and there is already momentum with the movement. 

Donald Trump may say he was an extremist to win the election, but, didn't really mean it. Really? There are a lot of people who believed every word he stated.

...Cardinal Parolin was asked about the polemics that arose earlier in the year between Trump and Pope Francis over the question of immigration, especially concerning the US-Mexico border.

“Let’s see how the president acts,” Cardinal Parolin said. “Normally, they say, it is one thing to be a candidate and another to be president, to have that responsibility.”

“It seems premature to make judgments” until Trump is inaugurated and begins making decisions, Cardinal Parolin said....

The people involved with Trump's election believed every word he said and after all these same people have sat on the side lines for decades and watched and waited. They now have a foothold and are not reversing their understanding because it is ONLY politics after all. These people are invested. They aren't reversing any allegiance.
There is nothing to figure out with what went wrong with the Democractic strategy in 2016. 

Hm. Let's see what went wrong?

If I was an FBI profiler what would I target to defeat a strong DNC strategy?

I know I'd attack Hillary Clinton's credibility. That would work and guess what? It did. 

Do you Comey only  became an Independant in 2016? No? Until 2016 he was a Republican. All of a sudden in 2016 he had a rush of conscience and became an Independent.


Ethics has always been a joke to Republicans. It's steeped in the Republican hubris/culture.

How Cheney Cooked The Books And Got Away With $35 Million  
Jason Leopold

08/19/04 "ICH" -- 

It’s obvious that no mainstream news reporter (click here) has the gumption to seriously question Vice President Dick Cheney’s ethics when he was chief executive of Halliburton, the oil-field services company that is currently embroiled in a scandal with the Pentagon due to its questionable accounting practices related to its work in war-torn Iraq .  
Pity those journalists because this is the stuff Pulitzer’s are made of. What’s even more remarkable is that there’s reams of documents in the public domain showing how Cheney cooked the books when he was CEO of Halliburton, which makes the vice president look like Ken Lay’s twin brother. The evidence is beginning to colle ctdust.Totellthestory of how Cheney’s Halliburton used accounting sleight of hand to fool investors all you need to do is connect the dots, which is what this story will do.  
Let’s start with a bit of old news. A couple of weeks ago Halliburton agreed to pay a $7.5 million fine to settle a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission probe related to a 1998 change in the way Halliburton accounted for construction revenue.  
The commission says the undisclosed accounting change caused Halliburton's public statements regarding its income in 1998 and 1999 to be materially misleading, boosting Halliburton’s profits on paper by $120 million.  
“In the absence of any disclosure, the investing public was deprived of a full opportunity to assess Halliburton's reported income - more particularly, the precise nature of that income, and its comparability to Halliburton's income in prior periods,” according to the commission...

Republicans are not nice people. They hide behind a god that admires USA jets flying against the background of the USA flag.  But, I have to admit the previous republicans were only interested in power and money; but; Trump is the first one to actually turn the streets of the USA into a revolt against the state, while White Supremists consider his victory their victory.

In the dreams of Dick Cheney, (click here) to which I am not privy, I imagine there are boldly contrasting scenes of victory and despair.

In one fantasy, he leads a victorious U.S. Army to a hero's welcome through the crowded streets of Baghdad, cheered wildly for having been the most outspoken proponent of war against Saddam Hussein.

In his nightmares, meanwhile, he is led off in handcuffs, accused of crimes committed while CEO of Halliburton, securing that company's place in the ever-growing pantheon of post-boom corporate fraudsters.

Peace, particularly the functioning of the economic order, has turned out to be far riskier than the waging of war for this administration. A typical American POW these days is a captain of industry who played loose with his company's books, and both Cheney and his alleged boss ran with that crowd.

Watchdog group to file suit against vice president and Halliburton over accounting issues. (click here)

July 10, 2002; 2:20 PM EDT

WASHINGTON (CNN) - A watchdog group that investigates alleged corruption by government officials said Wednesday it is filing a shareholders' lawsuit against Vice President Dick Cheney and the oil company he once headed over alleged fraudulent accounting practices.

"Whether it is the Enron, Arthur Andersen, Global Crossing, or now the Halliburton and Harken scandals, there is a dangerous intersection between politicians of all stripes, Democrat and Republican, attempting to feed at the trough of business greed," said Judicial Watch Chairman Larry Klayman....

...Judicial Watch is also suing troubled accounting firm Arthur Andersen LLP, which was Halliburton's (HAL: down $0.51 to $13.61, Research, Estimates) auditing firm at the time. Andersen was indicted for its role in shredding documents related to the Enron scandal.

The lawsuit was being shipped by courier Wednesday to federal district court for the northern district of Texas in Dallas, Judicial Watch spokesman Brian Doherty said. The group claims the accounting practices resulted in the overvaluation of the company's shares, which resulted in investors' being deceived. Cheney was chairman and chief executive of the oilfield services company from 1995 to 2000.

Judicial Watch filed the suit on behalf of shareholders Stephen S. Stephens, Lyle Lionbarger and Deanna Lionbarger, who are seeking about $475,000 in damages....

Corruption always gives me indigestion. Maybe that is why I hate it so. There are real consequences. Maybe Donald Trump should reflect on corruption of the past before embarking on it.

The activists never leave it alone. The West is entertained and make their own judgement of the lack of morality consistent with each country's values. Actually, corruption brings out the best work of activists. It is the unwritten law of social consequences.

Halliburton Co. (HAL.N), the No. 2 U.S. oilfield services company, (click here) has split off KBR Inc. (KBR.N), an engineering and construction company that had been a unit for 44 years, the companies said on Thursday.

Halliburton first announced plans in January 2005 to separate KBR, whose results had dragged on overall profitability. KBR is the Pentagon's largest contractor in Iraq, and its shares began trading in November.

Under an exchange offer that expired on April 2, Halliburton swapped 135.6 million KBR shares, equal to roughly an 81 percent stake, for 85.3 million of its own shares.

Both companies are based in Houston. Halliburton sparked criticism from some U.S. politicians when it announced plans on March 11 to open a headquarters in Dubai and move Chief Executive David Lesar there, to become better positioned to win contracts in the oil-rich Middle East.

Auditors, Congressional Democrats and the Justice Department have scrutinized Halliburton over the quality and pricing of KBR's work for the U.S. army in Iraq.

In Thursday trading, Halliburton shares closed up 10 cents at $32.94, while KBR fell 2 cents to $20.54.

The future foretold by the past. Trump is providing a whole new venue for "People Magazine."

...Donald Trump’s company (click here) has been paid up to $10 million by the tower’s developers since 2014 to affix the Trump name atop the luxury complex, whose owner, one of Turkey’s biggest oil and media conglomerates, has become an influential megaphone for the country’s increasingly repressive regime.

That, ethics advisers said, forces the Trump complex into an unprecedented nexus: as both a potential channel for dealmakers seeking to curry favor with the Trump White House and a potential target for attacks or security risks overseas.

The president-elect’s Turkey deal marks a harrowing vulnerability that even Trump has deemed “a little conflict of interest”: a private moneymaker that could open him to foreign influence and tilt his decision-making as America’s executive in chief....
Trump's conflict of interest with no clear fire wall between him and his influence with business interests will be tempered by the other party involved. There will be countries that will want to pander to Mr. Trump, by staying at his hotels and more, but, the country represented in those transactions have opinions back home that will be leveraged.

Will there be quid pro quo? That is a possibility.

Oppositional candidates in other countries dealing with Trump will find such scandals work in their favor.

Being a business man/president-elect does not excuse him from ethics and laws. Mr. Trump needs to up his ethics game rather than brutalizing the world with objectionable language that alienates diplomats.

I can't wait to find out what the tax relief is going to be for his colleagues at the "21 Club." (click here)

“Hamilton,” (click here) the hit Broadway musical about colonial rebels shaping the future of an unformed country, took an even more political turn at the end of its performance on Friday night.

With Vice President-elect Mike Pence attending the show, the cast used the opportunity to make a statement emphasizing the need for the new administration of President-elect Donald J. Trump, a Republican, to work on behalf of all Americans.

It was a deeply felt and altogether rare appeal from the stage of a Broadway show — and it drew a surprisingly sharp rebuke from Mr. Trump on Saturday morning. The president-elect wrote in a post on Twitter that the “Hamilton” cast had “harassed” Mr. Pence by making the statement and had been “very rude.”..."

Alexander Hamilton, "Real liberty is neither found in despotism or the extremes of democracy, but, in moderate governments."

Russia is racing to the Moon (click here)

Russia’s rocket and space corporation RKK Energia recently laid out its plan of crewed exploration of the Moon, which includes a flight to lunar orbit in 2030 and landing of the first Russian cosmonaut on the surface a year later.

RKK Energia CEO Vladimir Solntsev revealed on Nov. 15 that Russian flights to the Moon will enter the most crucial phase in 2026 when an uncrewed mission around Earth’s closest neighbor is planned. One year later, the company aims to launch a lunar lander to orbit the Moon. However, the biggest milestones are scheduled for 2029–2031.

“In 2029, there will be an unmanned flight of a new spacecraft to the Moon’s orbit. In the 2030s, we set the task of a manned flight to the Moon and in 2031 we plan landing on the Moon,” Solntsev said.

The new vision of lunar exploration by Russia may seem to accelerate the country’s space program, but it is simply a postponement of the date of future Moon landings envisioned in earlier statements. Last year, Solntsev made remarks about a possible crewed mission to the Moon in 2025 and with the first piloted lunar landing in 2029....
