Moving out and Cashing in April 28, 2017

The path to riches for any American politicians are quite straigh forward:

Being able to lie is a positive on your resume. If it comes naturally, you are born for the job. You are good at debate in high school and quick on your feet. You start from school board, move on to city council, get into state office, work your way up to Washington DC representing your district, become a governor or Senator and finally throw yourself into the center ring of the presidential circus. If you have what it takes or luck is looking after you, you end up as your party’s presidential candidate. 

Finally, you face your opponent in a few more rounds of debates on national TV, and on the election night, you either become the president or you go back to your old job.

While in the oval office, you start enjoy the fruit of your success big time with tax payers funded vacations complete with your own chef, butler and a big flying limo.

After you do your time and pay your due in that big boring old building, your earning power takes a big jump the day you walk out of that fortified compound.

Obama did just that and it is time for him to cash in. 

Well, everyone does it why can’t he?

See the number of fingers? Of course I didn’t say a word. I just let my fingers do the talking. Cantor Fitzgerald countered 250. We settleed on 4. Everyone was happy. $400,000.


Billy did it for 250. Hillary, a two-time loser, also pocket 250. Being the first black president and a 2-term president, it is only fair for Obama’s $400,000 engagement fee. Obama once called Wall Street bankers ‘fat cat’ for a reason. A skinny cat just can’t afford $400,000, can he? People who called Obama “hypocrite” are jealous because no fat cat will ever ask them to speak, not even for free.

Let’s be frank, what comes out of Obama’s mouth, isn’t very important. Cantor Fitzgerald doesn’t care much what Obama has to say. People go to that kind of events for one thing and one thing only. It isn’t food. It is the connection they are after.

Cantor Fitzgerald won’t fork out the entire $400,000 either. It is a tax deductible event and tax payers may foot part of the expenses.

Also, don’t expect liberal media will report this because that’s just the way America is. No big deal. 

To hell with the 99%. It’s not Obama’s problem anymore. In fact, it never was. It’s time to enjoy life.

Democrats, time to move on April 20, 2017

Democrats, haven’t they, your so-called leaders, done enough damage to your party already?

Bowing redline Obama. Need I say more?

Immoral, greedy, lying, influence peddling, corrupt, heartless and highbrowed Clinton.

The “I did not have ……. with that woman….”, “I never told anybody to lie, not a single time, never” and “I need to get back to work for the American people” liar.

It’s time to move on, find someone else to cling on or look for greener pasture.

Ever thought about coming over to the not-so-big tent with a red R on its center pole? They need people. The middle age whites are, for the last time, struggling to be taken seriously by American voters.

Democrat Party: start your election engine April 18, 2017

I think Democrat has a small chance to capture the majority of the House of Representatives in 2018 because it is difficult to overcome the 44 seat advantage enjoyed by the Republican Party.

That being said, Democrat only needs to win a net of 24 seats to make Pelosi the speaker of the House. If it happens in 2018, Trump will be in deep s**t. Do you see the big “I” word on the wall?

Source: wikipedia

Republican’s has a four seat advantage over the Democrat Party in the Senate right now which means that Democrat only has to win net three seats in November 2018 to become the majority party in the Senate. However, the outcome is not certain for Democrats because Republicans have 9 seats up for grab while Democrats have 23. The independents, who caucus with Democrat, have 2 seats up for election.

Other than Obamacare, Obama actually had nothing to show of in 8 years. The Republican Party has about 19 months to overturn the Obamacare. Once Obamacare is repealed under Trump and Ryan, Obama will be wiped clean completely.

非常簡單:除非己莫為。

Politicians always blame others first for their own mistakes which was what Trump did in this case. The way it goes around Trump these days, more leaks will definitely come out of Trump’s White House whether Trump likes them or not. 

Every reporter in Washington DC dreams of getting a “Watergate” moment in his or her reporting life. They are waiting. They have time. And they have patience.

A country deeply divided February 7, 2017

In a recent blog I talked about discrimination against Muslims because of Trump’s immigration ban.

I also said that the next one on the line is Latinos. Chinese 3rd and Indians 4th.

Lo and behold, this came along.

I am almost certain that the customers in that piece are white Americans.

Would you care to guess who got this started in the first place?
Discrimination was and still is something many Asians (Latinos, Indians and Africans) immigrants have to face either at work or in their daily lives. Of course we all know that African Americans are still fighting an ugly uphill battle.

Under Trump, the mood in the U.S. now is conducive to extreme discrimination. What is scary and most unfortunate is that some people fell so emboldened that they actually wear that badge on their sleeves. 

What will America be like four years from now? If Trump continues to act like a bully, Democrats will likely win back the Senate and dent Republican’s advantage in the House in 2018. In November 2020, Democrat will have an easy fight against Republican too. 

Obama pushed America to the extreme of social liberalism and got Democrat thoroughly defeated at the voting booth last year. Trump is leading America to the opposite direction and he will face his judgement day in time. 

Most Americans had no choice but took the roller coaster ride with the so-called Commander in Chief in the name of Democracy. What did they get from their elected officials at the highest level of the government other than complete and utter disgust of the system?

No wonder ‘God Bless America’ was sung at Superbowl half time show because America is in such a chaos. 

But which America?

Not for the prime time? February 4, 2017

Balance of power is at stake in the U.S. after a Washington state judge blocked Trump’s executive order to ban travelers and Immigrants from seven Muslim countries. 

Usually, the minority party, Democrat in this case, is tasked to do the opposition. However, the Democrat was severely weakened after eight years of Obama and soundly defeated at all government levels with Hillary at the top of the ticket. They don’t have the House and they don’t have the Senate which leaves the judicial branch the last resort to counter Trump and his executive orders. 

Such is the case eight years ago when Obama, Reid and Pelosi rammed Obamacare through both houses because Democrats had the House and the Senate. Check and balance failed the American people because Republicans were powerless to mount any meaningful opposition even though majority of the American people opposed the law. Of course, Chief Justice Roberts made Obamacare legitimate after he ruled that money collected from violating the “Individual Mandate” a tax, not a fine. 

Trump’s executive order is being questioned by the court even though the order was designed to keep potential terrorists out of American’s soil for a period of time. Although, it is obvious to almost everyone that the overwhelming majority of the terrorists are muslims, ethnic profiling made Trump’s order an obvious target for liberal judges.

The fight between the executive branch and the judicial branch will continue for some time and it appears that Trump will not prevail in this fight. Of course, this is my opinion and it is by no means a prediction.

The longer the hoopla plays out at airports around the world, the more heated the legal fights wage in the courthouses and the more Trump tweets out words like ‘outrageous’ and ‘bad’ on Twitter, the more these events reveal that Trump and his hand-picked team is ill prepared for the prime time on the Internet and on the news media.

Well, while “check and balance” is at the center of this debate, national security is taking a back seat from the reality show. 

Americans and the world are watching as the legal drama and non-stop protest play out on live TV and on the Internet. I am willing to bet a bowl of beef noodle soup (牛肉麪) that majority of people, terrorists included, want Trump coming out of this fight a loser.

BBC News: How much truth is there in Trump’s TPP claims? January 25, 2017

How much truth is there in Trump’s TPP claims? – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-38728059


Answer: Not much at all.

I didn’t like TPP because it was an secretive deal with zero input from the Republican Party and American citizens. TPP would permit companies to sue governments if they believe these countries change their policies to favor state-provided services.

Furthermore, TPP’s primarily beneficiaried are U.S. international companies with low or zero tariff on as many as 18,000 U.S. products.

For instance, American auto exports would grow when tariffs as high as 70% in certain markets are removed.

U.S. farmers would teapthe most rewards. Certain food items exported to some countries are taxed up to 40%. For instance, soybeans are taxed at 35% and dairy, sugar, rice and seafood see taxes as high as 98%.

Without a doubt, the political undertone of TPP is to contain China’s rise. The U.S. wanted to use TPP to fence off China’s economy’s expansion, to put Chinese companies at a disadvantage. 

In essence, the U.S. wanted to use TPP as a weapon to fight an economic war against China.

Now that Trump pushed TPP off the table, Trump is waging his version of an economic war against China.

Let the fireworks begin!

沒有歐巴馬瞎搞八年,川普就沒有總統做 January 25, 2017

歐巴馬在位八年沒有什麼大的不得了的成就。

從他上臺,美國經濟年增長率都徘徊在2%左右。美國在以前幾次經濟蕭條以後的經濟復甦都有4%到6%的年成長率。U3失業率是假的指標,因為許多失業的人對就業市場絕望,不找事了。比較準確的U6失業率下降了七個百分點,在八年中,創造了一千一百萬個新工作。但是,有些新的工作只是半工,薪水也不理想,這些都是大家知道的。

但是這些成就並不是歐巴馬的國內經濟政策有什麽貢獻,這是葉愣大媽拼命舉國債,給華爾街的財團打強心針,印鈔票買長期國債和房貸,借錢給美國政府揮霍,給經濟打進口的嗎啡,長期吃補藥的結果。歐巴馬呢?忙著呢。只是不是忙經濟。

譬如,歐巴馬一上臺,在美國經濟最需要補助的時候,他不搞經濟,卻把他所有精力和政治資本放在健保上面。結果呢?怨聲載道,勞民傷財,保險公司拒絕參加,納稅人買單,到頭來川普一搞,歐巴馬健保可能無疾而終。後來呢?派兵去打阿富汗。記得吧?

不過,歐巴馬上臺八年後,也不是沒有成就。歐巴馬用總統的特權,再接再厲去做的事也有非常顯著的結果:那就是把美國變成了自由派的天堂,把自己拱上自由派天皇的寶座。

那些伸手要錢,靠政府吃飯的喜歡他這個散財童子。他借環保之名,一味地反對能源工業,親手剷除許多高薪的工作。LGBT那一批同志被歐巴馬當情人一樣的養了八年。這些同志愛死他了。中南美洲偷渡過來的非法移民是民主黨的基本票源,歐巴馬想盡辦法把他們留在美國,所以這些人擁戴他。

好萊塢那一堆金光閃閃的演員更是抱著歐巴馬的大腿不放,把他當影帝一樣的捧著他。給歐巴馬競選金的投機客賺的最多。歐巴馬搞個研究基金,撒大錢做研究,結果什麼都沒有做出來,幾個都破產了。美國立國的基本宗教精神被

八年來,美國由一個居中偏右的社會變成一個極左的天堂。美國的核心價值觀蕩然無存,美國的清教徒中心思想被左派攻擊的體無完膚,基督教和天主教最重視的聖誕節淪落到不倫不類的地步。神聖的夫妻結婚被歐巴馬的LG綁架。人類原有的兩性硬是被歐巴馬加上個BT。非法移民擠破了頭也要偷渡到美國,因為歐巴馬和民主黨喜歡他們的選票。美國的世界領袖地位變成世界各國的笑柄。歐巴馬的90度鞠躬和他畫下的紅線變成美國懦弱無能的代表。美國引起,美國主導和美國應該負責的2009年世界財政危機變成美國華爾街貪婪無厭的例子。結果,富者愈富,窮者越窮,中間的壕溝越來越深。貧富不均,薪水下降,長期失業變成美國的常態。

這些原因就是歐巴馬八年以來瞎搞的成果。這也是歐巴馬把美國總統的寶座送給川普的原因。
不知道八年前那些把歐巴馬拱上寶座的選民還笑的出來嗎?

Democrats lost the battle so decisively because they let Obama drag the party through the liberal (Take your pick: Obamacare, out-of-control national debt, LGBT, social welfare, illegal immigrants and red-turn-green lines) mud pit. Liberal media helped Obama lied to the voters and finally the greedy and the untrustworthy Clintons nailed the Democrat Party’s coffin with their arrogance and condescension.

Aleppo, Putin and Obama’s dismal legacy  December 26, 2016

In foreign policy, Obama is tragically out of sync with Syria people and much of the Middle East. He is also pathetically out of sync with American people. 

His despicable and liberal domestic agenda was undeniably responsible for the uprising of the Trump crowd.

Sadly, under Trump, American people will be pulled toward the other extreme: neoconservatism.
