Will you trust the 2020 American presidential election result?

May be Russia should send a few observers to monitor and report irregularities of the U.S. election in 2020.

I didn’t know what loutish means so I look it up:

Loutish: (of a man or boy) uncouth and aggressive; thuggish.

And what does uncouth mean?

Uncouth: lacking good manners, refinement, or grace.

How do you use loutish in a sentence?

The loutish bully didn’t have a whole lot of friends.

Here

is why I look it up in the first place:

It’s getting a little personal, Isn’t it?

Politicians do this all the time April 12, 2017

When politicians are having trouble at home, they stir something else up to keep the press away.

Have you heard anything about Trump’s Russia dossier lately? Nah.

Heard anything about Michael Flynn on the news? Negative.

What about FBI and Congressional investigations? Not a word.

Everyone was mesmerized by Kim Jong-un, possible war between the U.S. and North Korea and relationship between Trump and Putin.


Trump sure did a nice job moving media’s attention away from him.

The fisherman on the sideline benefits without doing a thing.

In Chinee, it means:

鷸蚌相争,魚翁得利。

Pictures are worth a thousand words. 

You’ll know who is the crane and who are the clams.
You’ll have to guess who the fisherman is.

The U.S. wants Assad out. America is building another nation. It just can’t stop messing around with other nation’s business, can it?

Trump apparently wants to start two regional wars, one chemical and one nuclear, at the same time. 

Now, how many Koreans are there in the United States and how many of them are from the North of the 38th parallel?

What will North Korea do? 

What will Trump do?

What will Russia do? Back to “Cold War” again?

Can Trump recover? April 5, 2017

What a disastrous start by a U.S. president ever! 
Trump’s ego hurt him, his ignorance of how Washington works made him not qualified as a major player inside the Beltway and some of his his tweets were laughing stock of the world.

Add to these embarrassment were serious allegations of illegal contacts between Trump’s campaign staff and Russian diplomats in the U.S.

With FBI and Congressional Investigations on going, Trump’s political fate is unclear. If Trump was found to have personally involved in a plot to discredit Clinton as a presidential candidate, he may be forced to leave the office.

Additionally, Trump’s executive orders since occupying the White House were divisive, poorly executed and inciting hatred among differen classes of the American people. This was really bad.
Trump’s empty threats to certain members of the Freedom Caucus made him looked small and it damaged the presidency.

Can he recover?

Of course, he can.

He has to pull the party together by working with all members of the Republican Party. He has to prove to the American people that he is indeed a great negotiator he repeatedly claimed he is. Work with Ryan and McConnell, reach out to moderate Democrats, revive the Trump/RyanCare legislature and pass the Individual and corporate tax reform he promised to the Middle Class and American businesses.

If he fails to pass the individual and corporate tax reforms, his presidency may be over in 2018.

I will give him the benefit of the doubt and see what he can do.

In the meantime, STOP THOSE TWEETS and be a statesman instead.

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.

The Most Dangerous Man in Trump World?

We are right to be worried for a nasty trade war between America and China. Maybe it is America vs. the world.

As if the U.S. isn’t spending enough on defense, Navy wants to build 355 more ships in the next 30 years. The initiative is the result of Trump’s denand to re-build American’s arm forces to counter the threats from China and Russia.

Since Navy revealed its wish list, Army, Air Force and Marines will send in their’s too. Then there is Coast Guard and Special Ops. Every department wants a piece of the big pie.

America defense spending already accounts for ~45% of the total defense spending by every nation in the world.

But, where will the money come from; Medicare, Medicaid, ObamaCare, education or food stamps? Will the Freedom Caucus go along with this kind of reckless spending? Will Democrats play dead and let Trump have his way? No way.

U.S.national debt is already a whopping $20 trillion right before Obama’s moving vans clear 了the White House gate. With Trump in the WH, it is likely that U.S. annual deficit will explode to the upside and forcing America borrowing 0even more from its foreign credictors. But, will they? If they reduce their purchases, market interest rate of the weekly Treasury auctions will rise.

With the U.S. economy and labor market reportly poised to improve after spending the past 8 years in the out house, the Fed will be forced to raise the overnight lending rates. It will push all lending rates higher which will increase the interest payment on American’s national debt. 

In a rising rate environment, what the Fed should have done is to sell the short term Treasury notes and replace them with long term Bonds to lock in low rates before they go up. But, that’s not what the Fed is doing. As a result, interest payment on U.S. national debt will be out of control in a few years.

Empire comes and empire goes. The first sign of trouble usually shows up in too much debt. The empire of America is still sailing at pretty high speed but the load it carries gets heavier and heavier and the hole under the boat gets bigger and bigger. 

Do you get the picture now?
