To save money on the payroll, Trump has to fire all 755 state dept employees expelled by Putin.

Source: Yahoo News

Being a business man, Trump should know this at least. Apparently he doesn’t. Maybe he want to let them go.

Well, the State Department budget will be cut by 25% anyway. The layoff of 755 in one fell swoop will help to speed up the process a lot.

Let’s get the pink slips flying. American’s State Department has done a lot of bad things to other countries in the world for 70 years already. A 25% cut across the board in that department is a good start.

The next target: DoD?

禍不單行:WH Paralyzed, Trump terrified August 9, 2017

A completely paralyzed White House:

1.WH Chief of Staff Reince Priebus sacked.

2. US AG Sessions publically huminiated by Trump. 

3. Obamacare repeal failed at U.S. Senate after many tries by the Republicans.

4. Mooch fired as WH communication director after 10 days of becoming one.

5. A bipartisan vote of a tougher sanction against Russia was overwhelmingly passed by the Congresd and Trump had to sign it into law. It drastically reduces Trump’s ability to lift sanctions against Russia: a huminiation to Trump presidency.

6. Mueller empaneled a brand new grand jury in DC looking into Trump campaign’s colusion with Russia.

7. Republican and Democratic Senators draft bills to protect Mueller from Trump.

8. Details of Trump’s January calls with leaders of Mexico and Australia leaked. Trump asked Enrique Peña Nieto stop publicly saying not to pay for the border wall because it made Trump looked bad. Trump said to Turnbull: “I hate taking these people (refugees from mostly Muslim countries.) I guarantee you they are bad.” 

Mueller impaneled a grand jury to investigate Russia’s interference in the US presidential election. The grand jury sits in secret, subpoenas witnesses,demands documents, evaluates the case and issues indictments if it deems it appropriate. 

Trump has to be scared by Mueller’s grand jury which has ttemendous power to look into Trump’s past dealing with Russia. Worse for Trump, the grand jury was impaneled in Washington D.C., which Hillary won easily in 2016 with 95% of the vote. Trump’s chance of a fair trail isn’t very good. 

Can Trump sleep well tonight knowing that Mueller’s lawyers are checking his financial records and NSA are checking his and his family’s emails and phone calls?

Probably not.

Spending our money! 

More of it by a Republican-controlled Congress.
Republican Party = Democratic Party

Both parties are shameful, wasteful, deceitful, corrupt and reprehensible.

This is American democracy at its best.

Do you want it? You can have it.

The real fight has just begun July 30, 2017

Some Americans are proud of their government. They believe that it is the best there is in this world; balanced power-sharing scheme, independent-minded branches and free of corruptions. Whether that’s the case in reality is open to discussion.

There are three independent branches: the administration, the legislature and the judicial. Each has its own distinct power and each works on its own. The term Americans often cite for how their government works like a well-greased machine is “checks and balances.”

Well, the Administration has some say on domestic issues but its hands are tied because the Congress holds the string to the purse. But, in foreign policy and starting wars against other countries, Congress has little leverage on what the Administration choose to do.

Congress is where politics is being played on almost every issue regarding how tax money is distributed: defense, social welfare, education, energy, art, science and many other areas.

These two branches are well-tuned political machines and both are not shy to play dirty politics to the fullest just to gain a little advantage over the other party. 

America’s judicial system is supposed to be apolitics. The judges are supposed to interpret the law without any personal bias or political inclination. These “saints” in black robes hold tremendous power and usually have the final say on almost every issue affecting people’s lives.

That’s where politics are being played to the fullest between the liberals and conservatives.

Wow, if that happened, the defeat of Hillary by Trump will set liberals back by decades. 

We’ll see if Trump can keep his seat.

The pitfall of American democracy  July 28, 2017

Once every two years American voters head to the polling places to elect their congressperson. Once every four years they choose about one third of their senators. And of course, they choose their president when they vote for their senators.America called this democracy. Basically, it is a government where majority rules. No matter the majority is 50.01% or 80%. 

Because these these representatives, be it the congressperson or senators, want to keep their jobs the next time around, it creates some very funny situations before elections. It’s really human nature which is at work here: Greed, power grab, fear of losing their jobs and pass the can to the next guys so that I can keep my job.

Democracy creates politicians who usually lie when they open their mouths. 

Why?

Because they want to keep their jobs. 

And what standard do voters use to decide which one to vote for?

Simple: the more pork these politicians bring back home, the better chance he or she will have at the ballot box.

It is simply a giant bacon feast at Washington DC around this time every year when federal spending budgets are being decided by 535 people plus the vice president.

Democracy also corrupt politicians’ souls because they have to lie for the sake of his or her re-election.

Democracy brews hatred among different classes of people because politicians take from one group and give it to another. 

Democracy incites class warfare because politicians stir up conflicts between ethic groups for the sake of their politcal future.

Democracy is poisonous because it encourages politicians making promises they can’t keep after election.

Democracy makes voters gullible because they choose what they like to hear and block out things they don’t wsnt to know.

Democracy is a game of bending with the wind because politicians conduct polls in their own district to determine which bill to vote for and which one to block.

Democracy is powerless to do the right thing, like cut spendings, because to do so is to offend a group of people which increase the possibilty of  eliminating his or her own job.

Democracy is a game of winning that 0.01% at the ballot box. To hell with the 49.99%. I win. You lose. It is that simple.

Democracy is susceptable to impass by default. A majority of 50.01% doesn’t produce any mandate by any measure. In addition, the structure and special rules of American Senate make passing any bill a difficult one. As a result, many bills languish in the Senate and the country waits and progress gets delayed.

What if all politicians can serve only one term, say 8 years with no chance of re-election?

There is a problem with that too. Politicians will make as much as he or she can for him or herself while in the office. Politicians everywhere do that all the time. Legislators in Taiwan come in mind. Only a few unlucky ones, like a few ex-presidents of Korea and Taiwan for example, got caught and served jail time after their terms finished. The majority are laughing to the bank and live a comfortable live at tax payers expenses, e.g., 李登輝 of Taiwan.

Such is democracy America practiced and promoted to the world.

And who got shafted?

The tax payers.

In the U.S. government language, this is called “The Universal Survellience” and NSA in Maryland is doing this 24/7/365 even after Snowden.

This is the de facto ‘ultimate’ Big Brother ever.

The U.S.A. used to be a free country. It is no more.

It’s scary.

Saturday Night Massacre – Act II July 26, 2017

Whom will Trump fire this Saturday night?

Sessions,

Rod Rosenstein, or

Trump’s enemy no. 1, Robert Mueller?

If Trump got rid of Mueller with a Saturday night tweet, Sessions and Rosenstein will for sure resign. 

Democrats will revolt and call for Trump to step down. Trump will tweet and refuse. The U.S. of A will be a mess. White House will grind to a halt but Twitter will get all the attentions it can stand. It will be high drama time inside the Beltway.

Republican party will for sure lose majority on Senate and possibly on the House in 2018 too. 

The question will then be: can Trump survive that long?

Democracy = 搞不定了 July 21, 2017

許多人以為美國的民主制度是世界上最好的政治制度。

為什麼這些人有這種想法呢?

因為美國從二次世界大戰以後就拼命的鼓吹美國版的民主政治有多好。美國動不動就把民主放在嘴上,跟其他國家談判時就自以為了不起的批評那些沒有採取民主政治治國的國家。

美國先把美金懸在對方的頭上,然後把民主和人權當做皮靴在後面踢對方的屁股,用美國錢和實行民主做籌碼逼迫其他國家就範。

一次又一次,美國搞的得心應手,在世界上到處搞政變,搞顛覆,搞推翻,搞新政府。美國自以為自己有多了不起,把個臭頭抬的高高的,自以為天下無人,只有美國可以永世稱霸於世界。

你看美國聯邦政府在川普上台以後這半年做了什麼?川普的幾個重要競選保證:共和黨說了七年的推翻歐巴馬健保,稅法改變,重建美國基礎設施,建墨西哥高牆,阻止穆斯林恐怖分子進美國,到現在沒有一個保證成為法律。要知道,美國國會上下兩院都是被共和黨控制的。共和黨裏面自己搞不定才發生的結果。如果民主黨再進來攪混一下那不更要天翻地覆了嗎?

過去六,七十年,美國橫行霸道,許多落後國家沒有其他的方法,只有向美國低頭。美國為了自己的利益,只要它對那一個國家看不順眼,或者對那一國的元首有意見,美國就暗中或公開的想辦法把能那個國家或元首搞下去,然後弄一個討好美國的人上台,給他和他的政黨許多美國錢,還派美國軍隊鎮壓任何反對分子。過了一兩年以後,美國把這個政府推上民主的舞台,搞個選舉,大搖大擺的的成立了一個親美國的政府。

可是民主政治真的那麽好嗎?50.01%的多數就能控制一個國家所有的人嗎?

美國三權分立,相互監視就真的那麽有效率嗎?共和黨要幹掉 Obamacare,在Obama在位時就搞了好多次,結果一次都沒有成功。好了,現在共和黨有了白宮,有了國會,有了最高法院,可是這個政府又爲人民做了些什麼呢?

一個大鴨蛋。

一兩個人在國會反對,不管你喜歡不喜歡,就可以把美國所有的人搞得死去活來的。

而這一兩個人也只不過代表幾萬個選民罷了。那你以為這幾個人為什麼要反對呢?是他維護正義?維護美國人民的利益?

都不是。

因為他下一任選舉就要到了。

這就是美國的民主政治。

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.

Democrat went nuclear.

Republican went nuclear.

They all went nuclear.

American Democracy at its finest moment?

Should American people on the unemployment line or running between jobs laugh or cry at the nuclear fallout?
