I can’t stop blaming you 

By Donald Trump

====================================

(I can’t stop blaming you)

I’ve made up my mind

To live in memory of my stupid times

    (I can’t stop pissing you)

    I have more foolish things to say

    So I’ll just tell my lies in dreams of yesterday

    (Dreams of yesterday)

    Those obama days that we once loathed
    Tho’ long ago, they still make me fume

    They say that I broke many laws 

    But laws mean nothing since I took the dump

    (I can’t stop blaming you)

    I’ve more foolish things to say

    To live in memories of my stupid times

    (I can’t stop pissing you)

    I’ve more foolish things to say

    So I’ll just tell my lies in dreams of yesterday

    ====================================

    白人將在不久的未來成為美國的少數民族。

    在未來的二十年;也就是五次總統選舉之內,美國會產生一個有西班牙裔血統的總統嗎?如果把目標放小一點,民主黨內會不會有一個西班牙血統的總統候選人嗎?

    美國在2008年產生了第一個黑人總統。希拉里競選組織無能,把白宮的寶座送上,怪不得別人。2016年,希拉里雖然比川普多贏了三百多萬張選票,但是她輕敵,無能,又把寶座雙手奉上給她的對手:川普。同時,美國傳統的白人保守派在歐巴馬和自由派八年的砍殺下,被整的死去活來。這些人看到川普以為天上掉下來的一個救世主,結果以八萬票左右的差距在傳統的民主黨基地取得了勝利,入主白宮。

    進了白宮以後呢?

    川普除了放火燒自己的屁股,就沒有做幾件對美國有好處的事。他競選的支票沒有幾張兌現的。他兒子和蘇俄外交官與律師接頭以及川普修改他們會議的原因,遲早會帶給川普一大堆麻煩。還有 Mueller 的 grand jury 更是川普的剋星。川普就像一個火爐上鍋子裏的青蛙。水溫一點一點的增加,川普想跳也跳不出去,只有在裏面等水開了被美國最厲害的律師剝皮。

    目前共和黨擁有國會上下兩院,民主黨最多也只能叫叫,發發牢騷而已。如果2018年11月期中選舉共和黨輸了任何一個議院,那川普就頭痛了。到時候,這個聽証,那個調查,把他的家人和朋友一個個的叫到議院來宣誓再詢問,那就有好戲看了。

    川普整天忙東忙西到處放火,同時還要到處滅火,到時候,一點事都做不出來。

    不過,只要川普把美國搞的一團糟,世界上那一個國家會受利呢?

    First of all, take your pick to put the contest into context.

    1. 30 somthing vs. Grandpa.
    2. Happy face vs. sad face.
    3. 80後 vs. 歐吉桑

    ================================

    Trump to Kim: 

    We’ll take you out by force. 

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Trump to Graham: 

    Tell Kim that I an dead serious about what I intend to do to Kim.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Kim to Trump: Take this and shove it.

    Self explanatory. No further explanation is needed.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Trump to China:

    It’s China’s fault because you are not doing your job and I, the president of the most powerful nation in the milky way galaxy and the leader of the world won’t allow it. Go talk to Kim and tell him to behave.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    China to Trump: 

    It’s not my problem. You started it and it’s up to you to solve it. 

    Btw, China has a saying about you: 解鈴還需系鈴人. Use Google translation to figure out what we mean. You might learn something.

    Well, China declares that North Korea is not a Chinese problem. It is a U.S. problem. China also points out that it was Trump who started the conflict in the first place. Trump can solve the North Korea problem himself and China will step aside and watch with amusement.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Trump to Tillerson

    Damn it, Rex. It appears our show of force isn’t working. Tillerson, do something! Let’s fly you to Pyongyang to talk to Kim instead. Rex, it is up to you now. Go do your job or I’ll fire you.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Tillerson to Kim:

    I am going to use the good cop/bad cop routine to deal with you.
    First of all, Trump was just kidding when he said that he’ll kill Kim. Actually, he didn’t mean it. He want to be friends with Kim. He said a lot of stupid things like dreaming up phone calls from Boy Scout and president of Mexico. Don’t take Trump too seriously. He has a big mouth and lousy memory. He dreams a lot too.

    Trump has a change of heart because Trump has all the fire power at his disposal but can’t fire a single shot. It’s all because of you (Kim). You doesn’t give a damn about Trump’s empty threats and keeps firing missiles to the sky. Can’t you just take a break and stop firing misdiles for a week or two. Trump needs some quiet time and peace of mind. Leaders around the world see him as a joke. Just ask France’s pretty face. He won’t let Trump’s hand go.

    My job here is to find a ladder for Trump to climb down from without losing too much face? Can you just do that for old Rex. We can talk about having ExxomMobil do some work for you in private after dust settles. You know I have great 關係 at XOM.

     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    So what now, Trump? 

    What are you going to do with Carl Vinson, Ronald Reagon and 20+ warships currently carrying out drills around Korean Peninsula? Was it 60+ warships instead of 20+? Isn’t there is a third aircraft carrier coming to Korean water to form an “armada”? 

    What will happen to your “ironclad commitment” to protect South Korea and Japan since North Korea keeps sending missiles into the sky? You know that “IC” phrase is very catchy. It has that powerful ring to it when you say it so forcefully.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Trump:

    Wait for my tweets. That’s when I tell the truth. I have a country to run.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Kim

    Busy working on another ICBM test.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    China

    Working on 一帶一路

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Russia

    Hacking into U.S. 2018 election headquarters and dig more dirt on Hillary and Bill. They deserve to go to jail. Chinese call this: 吃幾天牢飯。

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    2nd Korean war July 31, 2017

    Is it a S. Korean problem?

    No doubt about it. 

    Instead of raining cats and dogs, DMZ, Seoul and a big chunk of S. Korea will see bombs of all sorts raining down from the sky before the U.S. can surgically nuetralize threats from N. Korea missile sites. There might be nuclear, bio and chemical varieties.

    S. Koreans won’t like Trump’s call for actions either because millions of S. Koreans have relatives in the north. They don’t want to see them die from American bombs. 
    Will S. Korea invade the North without U. S. participation? 

    No.

    Will S. Korean soldiers kill N. Korean soldiers and vice versa?

    No, if they have a say. They are all Koreans after all.

    So, let me get this straight:

    After Trump tweets out the order to bomb the hell out of N. Korea, it is the Koreans who will suffer the most and it is the Koreas which will endure the most damages. 

    It isn’t a good picture and it doesn’t make any sense for Mr. Moon at all.

    Is it a problem for Japan?

    Definitely. Japan had twice occupied Korea in the past, slaughtered many Koreans and ruled Korean people for centuries. For that, Koreans hate Japan and that’s why N. Korea wants nothing less than total revenge against Japan if a war breaks out between the U.S. and N. Korea. 

    Then there is the issue of Japan denying the roles of comfort women during WWII. 

    Once war breaks out, N. Korea will try to do all it can to inflict damages to Japan and its people one way or the other. 

    Is it a problen for Russia?

    Nope. There might be nuclear fall outs in Russia if nukes start to fly. Russia will contunue to supply all the weapons N. Korea wants and provide intelligence data which N. Korea needs to fight the war.

    Putin should benefit the most from the war between the U.S.A. and N. Korea.

    Is it a problem for China?

    To some degree. China may see thousands of N. Korean migrants crossing over the Yalu River if Trump decides to bomb N. Korea. Nuclear fall outs in China can’t be dismissed either. 

    But, N. Korea will not invade China and it will not send missiles to the direction of China either. It is annoying to China because of all the tweets from Trump but the war isn’t a problem for China per se.

    In the end, China will stand behind N. Korea in spirit but will not fight for the country like it did in the first Korean war. If N. Korea requests weapons, China will provide them so that Kim’s regime can defend itself.

    After the war, China will offer N. Korea interest free loans and help N. Korea re-build. China’s excess capacity gets new orders and N. Korea gets new factories, new roads and new railroads. It’s a win win situation.

    Is it a problem for the U.S.?

    Yes. 50+K American soldiers in DMZ and Camp Humphreys will be in harms way. Nukes, bio and chemical bombs could come down on them. Andrews AFB will become a busy place. Body bag makers will see a rush of new orders. Bomb makers will work overtime to re-stock the pile. U.S. economy gets a small boost. 

    American ship and carriers in the vicinity of Korea and Japan and other regions in the Pacific Ocean may face threats from N. Korean subs even though these subs are old and out dated. 

    American soil will be spared just like all world wars in the past. But, N. Korean spies will try to cause damages to American assets in the world. 

    Can America do a surgical attack on N. Korean targets just to give Kim a warning?

    No. 

    The U.S. won’t. It has to do a “shock and awe” job in the beginning to eliminate major threats from the N. Korea. 

    To do that, America has to amass a large number of fighter planes before bombing starts. If America wants to invade N. Korea either with S. Korean troops (preferred by America, of course,) or American soldiers, they need to move soldiers to the DMZ. That will give N. Korea ample chance to strike the first blow to American soldiers and South Korean urban centers. It can get pretty ugly very fast.
    Is it a problem for North Korea?

    Certainly. Millions of N. Korean soldiers and civilians will die if the 2nd Korean War drags on. Infrastructure in N. Korea will for sure be damaged.

    Will Kim die? Probably not. He’ll be hidding in the bunker which can stand direct hits from Mother of all bombs. 

    Will Kim be captured? Not likely unless America sends in foot soldiers into Pyongyang to mop up the floor clean after devastating N. Korea.

    Whose war is it anyway?

    So, is Kim more of a problem for S. Korean people or is it a problem for Trump and America?

    The answer is clearly the latter. Koreans don’t want a war. Moon want a dialog with Kim and it is Trump and American generals who are more eager to start a war between two Koreas. 

    So, why is Trump so eager to stir up the pot? Because Trump is in trouble at home with low voters approval ratings and Mueller. The real reason for Trump’s N. Korea tweets is that by kicking the N. Korea conflict up a notch it might divert media’s attention away from Russian investigation. 

    A bigger question

    Shouldn’t S. Koreans have more to say about a war between the two Koreas instead of Trump?

    Moon should make it very clear to Trump on this important point unless Trump is sending American soldiers into the North too.

    A Black Swam from the Korean peninsula?

    So, is the 2nd Korean war a “black swan” event for the world financial markets to worry about?

    Not by the action of three major indices. All three are either at or near all time highs. 

    The only logical conclusion one can make is that despite all the tweets from Trump, the 2nd Korean war won’t happen.

    Unfortunately, the U.S. is still paying a hefty price for that transgression more than half a century later.

    America’s unlawful conducts are still going on in other parts of the world probably in the name of national security. 

    I guess the international bully just never learned.

    This kind of 2nd class citizen treatment, no matter what the excuse was, e.g., days in current position, has to be a first for any US president in recent history. 

    Merkel did it on purpose.

    BBC News: The end of the Anglo-American order? July 6, 2017

    I saw this on the BBC and thought you should see it:

    The end of the Anglo-American order? – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-40227270

    With China being the largest crude oil importer in the world, with Renminbi being accepted by central banks as a reserve currency and with Saudi Arabia and some OPEC countries don’t like what America is doing in the Middle East, is it likely that we will soon see crude oil being traded at Renminbi instead of the U.S. dollar? 

    Of course I am not talking about all oil trades will be settled on Renminbi but what about bi-lateral oil trades between Saudi and China and Nigeria and China. You know which side Rusdia stands on this. 

    The Renminbi bilateral swap lines between China and 33 (wiki data) other countries will be replaced with a new trading platform next year. In the past, these swaps were cleared by SWIFT which is under America’s influence. The new platform will be under China’s control and will be located in Shanghai away from SWIFT.

    The world order is fast changing in front of our eyes if you care to look.

    Will South Korea’s Moon reshape its military relations with US? July 6, 2017

    http://asia.nikkei.com/Politics-Economy/Policy-Politics/Moon-reshaping-South-Korea-s-military-relations-with-US?page=2

    I didn’t know until now that South Korea doesn’t have control of its own military at time of military conflict.

    Totally inconceivable.

    With a nominal GDP of almost $1.5 trillion (ppp ~$2 trillion) and a 2.7% GDP growth rate, South Korea no doubt can afford a modern military force.

    It goes to show that when someone else is feeding you, you (S. Korea) become lazy and easily satisfied with what you have. I call this 不長進。

    At the same time, while America deliberately makes South Korea relying on the U.S. to keep North Korea at bay, America has the perfect reason to stay in Korean peninsula to keep an eye on China and Russia.

    South Korea should take a look of what Israel is doing to defend itself from its enemies.

    S. Korea’s GDP is almost 5 times bigger than that of Israel.

    Let’s see what Moon can do in the next four years. Trump is tired of paying for it. Why don’t you take it over and let the U.S. go?

    A new world order is emerging June 11, 2017

    A matter of fact discussion of shifting of the balance of power in the world is clearly stated in the following article. 

    The end of the Anglo-American order? – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-40227270

    American exceptionism is fading because Trump has been building a wall to isolate the U.S. from its former allies while digging a hole to bury the America alive. Of course, we can not forget Obama’s ‘appeasing’ foreign policy and the wars the U.S. have been and still are wagging against Muslim countries.

    The American century will not be seen again and a new world order has already taken shape without Trump and the U.S.. 

    Some highlights from the article are here:

    America the hyprocrite June 5, 2017

    It’s about time that America stops being a hypricote and a snob of the world.

    The reason is simple: America hasn’t followed the ‘America value’ when dealing with its own citizens and other nations in the world.

    Let’s face it, America for years has violated human rights at home and at many areas in the world. It has never earned the respect from other nations for being the holder of the standard of justice. But America continues to claim moral highground and self-rightousness while criticize other nations, almost 200 nations in 2013, for human rights violations without uttering a word of its own transgressions.

    Over the years America was pround of itself for having laws and hiring quotas to prevent social injustice against minorities. But what actaully happens in everyday life in the United States tells a vastly different story. Racial discriminations and mis-treatments against blacks, Latinos, Muslims and Asians at work and in public in the U.S. are everyday occurances. Police brutalities against blacks are sometimes deliberate, always troublesome and widely seen on TV by millions of people around the world.

    When appearing in front of a mic or a video camera, many white American politicians (and talk show hosts and entertainers) are die hard human right defenders. In private, they often show their true colors as racists and look down on other races. 
    Remembered what B. Clinton said to T. Kennedy and what H. Reid said in private about Obama? If you don’t or choose to ignor them, let me remind you for the sake of human rights in America. Their comments sadly illustrate ‘white supremacy’ mentality ingrained in the American culture. 

    First, this shows what B. Clinton said about Obama to T. Kennedy:

    Source: the Gateway Pundit

    This shows what H. Reid thought of Obama:

    To further illustrate this point, one can clearly see ‘white supremacy’ in the following picture which shows the confirmed members of Trump’s cabinets: 13 white males (72%), 4 women (22%) and one black (6%.)

    Source: Alternet.

    Other actions by the U.S. government against its own citizens and other people of the world include massive cyber survaliance on emails and cellphones of common U.S. citizens and many if not all world leaders and the use of torture at Abu Ghraib.

    Trump’s executive order on travel bans to the U.S. from several muslim countries and building a physical wall along the U.S. and Mexico border were blatant violations of human rights against muslims and Latinos. The real sad truth about Trump’s action was that the same sentiments are shared by millions of Americans who helped elect Trump to become the 45th preident of the U.S. in the first place.

    And what has America done to secure its national interests in the world in the past? With its massive military machines, of course. The purpose of U.S. military in any conflict is to secure dominance in air, sea, land and space. To support this objective, America has deployed in more than 150 countries and has at least 662 overseas bases in 38 foreign countries plus many others in Iraq and Afghanistan.  

    While banishing other countries for their poor human right records, oppressed actions against their own citizens by autocratic monarchy governments in the Middle East were conviniently and unabashedly brushed aside by the U.S. government because many of these Islamic countries are strategic partners of the U.S. in the Middle East. America often criticizes its enemies for their poor records on human right violations but dismisses equally bad actions by their friends.

    Many military actions and missile and drone attacks taken by the U.S. military against other nations aren’t viewed as legitimate or morally defensible because they were carried out for American’s self interests. Most noticeable were America’s covert, but sometimes public, frequent, forceful and always deadly interventions in the Middle East over the past decades. Civilian deaths caused by American military machines have been ignored by the U.S. government because they were viewed as colleteral damages of American’s war on terror. In fact, US military forces have been responsible for thousands, possibly millions, of civilian deaths in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, Yemen and other regions around the world in the past decade. One might want to ask: ‘Has any of these countries invaded or attacked the United States?’

    Over the past six or seven decades, America has done enough bad things around the world. Finally, it knew that the status quo can not continue. Obama’s leading from behind and Mr. Tillerson’s comments are proofs that America has finally realized that America’s glamour of self-righteousness is fast contracting. Its aggressive military and political interventions against many under-developed nations have created enough enemies for the most powerful nation in the world. For that, America is now paying for the consequences. 

    America’s march to the bottom continues.
