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.

Trump lied. Again. August 6, 2017

Just like what I’ve predicted that a grand jury will be formed by Mueller for Trumps and their cohorts a day or two ago.

Grand jury assembled in Trump-Russia investigation http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-40820863

How come a grand jury is panelled so fast into Mueller’s invedtigation? What Mueller have on Trumps?

Is it all Sessions’ fault?

Will indictment be next for Trump Jr. and/or Kushner?

Will immunities be offerred to Flynn and Manafort to get a bigger fish?

Will Trump, Trump Jr. and Kushner be forced to answer questions under oath?

Is it too late to fire Mueller and Rod Rosenstein?

Will Trump be impeached by the House after 2018 election after Republican lose the House to Democrats?

Will Trump resign?

All interesting questions and Trump probably can’t help but ask himself in days and weeks to come?

Trump vs Kim: A pictorial primer August 3, 2017

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.



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



Busy working on another ICBM test.


Working on 一帶一路


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。

What a loser Trump!

Directory.com defines ‘hypocrite‘ as follows:

Don’t you see Trump fit that definition perfectly?

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.

永康牛肉麪 August 2, 2017

第一次慕名而來是七,八個月以前。我們離開台灣四十年,去年 (2016) 年底搬回台灣定居,一有空就四處找吃的。牛肉麪當然是必吃的。我們去過八德路的林東方牛肉麪,友人說永康牛肉麪也是一個牛肉麪的兵家必爭之地,所以我們就去了。


不知道是我不會用,還是我沒有搞懂,我總覺得”愛評“有點死氣沉沉的,用的人不多。每家餐館只有幾幾或十幾個評語,照片也不多,無法參考,我有點失望。Yelp 在台灣也有一些人使用,不過我猜許多都是觀光客寫的因為英文的評論比较多。台灣的餐館也只有比較有名的幾家才會在 Yelp 上面被客人批評著。

不過,私人的網路平台上倒是有不少討論美食的精彩的文章。比較齊全的是”痞客邦美食”。我猜,這個”邦”可能就是 blog 的意思吧。
























美國許多地方政府都有檢查餐館的制度。地方政府按時或突襲檢查轄下所有餐館的運作,不合標準的餐館就立即改進。過幾天,他們又會回來抽查,幾次改進仍然不合格的就勒令關門,如此搞來搞去,一直到合格為止。有些政府還爲餐館打分,把餐館的成績用A,B,C,D分類,把它放在餐館的門口,讓遊客和當地居民看的一清二楚。你要是開餐館,搞個 C 或 D 掛在大門口,你敢不改進嗎?


















Mueller and Grand Jury August 2, 2017

It takes many lies to cover up the first lie.

We all knew how it got started; an innocent email promising dirt on Hillary:

This was how the first lie got started from the very top:

Then there was the 2nd lie to cover the first one:

Then the third:

There will be more lies later. Just wait and see. Some lies have already said behind closed doors but we don’t know what they were. More lies from Trumps will come and the situation isn’t pretty for Trump or the Jr.

We all know they lied. Trumps all know that we know they lied. Mueller knows that Trumps lied. Trump and Junior are betting that the Mueller can’t proof anything.

If he can, Trump has to step down and Jr. may have to spend some quality time behind bars.

Trump and Jr. are scared because they have too many skeletons behind closed doors and some Republican Senators are doing their best to protect Sessions from being axed by Trump.

Don’t believe for a moment that there won’t be any more leaks from the WH despite Kelly’s appointment.

My follow up questions August 1, 2017

There are about 1200 U.S. State Department employees currently working against Russia in Russia. 755 of them got fired by Putin. Mr. Tillerson should fire them and save American tax payers by at least $500 million a year.

Here are my follow up questions:

How many U.S. State Department employees are working in China against China now?

Should that numbers be cut by 63% in one fell swoop too?
