Dementia. It showed itself before, but it is progressing rapidly.

Maybe I can get the President of Lower Slobovia to nominate my cat. She is certainly smarter than Humpty Trumpty, has a better grasp of international relations, and catches rats rather than appointing them to the cabinet.

Posted in: Trump declares emergency for border wall; House panel launches probe See in context

Bottom line: this is not a national emergency. A national emergency would be something like 9/11 where the President needs to rapidly mobilize resources to address an impeding attack i.e. emergency because going through the legislative process would take too much time. This is not an emergency. For one, nothing has changed at the Southern border between now and 365 days ago. Secondly, he has been contemplating it for months, so it is not an emergency if you have months to talk and think about it. Cause if you have months, you can go through Congress. He is clearly abusing power. And if he sees he can get away with it now, he will do it again maybe in 2020 saying he thinks the election results are invalid cause millions of illegals voted. The Democrats need to impeach him now and open the door to indictment. Forget Mueller, all he has done so far is allow Trump and the GOP to consolidate more power by lulling everyone into a false of security that something is being done. But we already know about all the crimes he has committed so far. Why is he still in the WH? This is scary.

We need someone who can win in 2020.

For example?

A potato should be able to beat Trump at this point. If you re-elect Trump, you deserve what you get and the rest of the world will leave you behind.

Congratulations David Pecker!

You just violated the terms of your plea agreement with SDNY and can now be prosecuted for your prior bad acts, in addition to this case of criminal extortion.

Now, what other prominent Americans have you extorted, and at the request of . . .whom?

Anybody we know?

Posted in: State of the Union: Trump vows to build border wall, warns Democrats against investigations See in context

Trump reassured us that he is not a Statesman by not allowing the Speaker of the House to introduce him, if you had any question as to whether trump was a Buffoon or not, he clarified that question as well. This demonstrated that this was not about State of the Union but the Mistake of the Union.

Anyone who gets a chance needs to visit Hiroshima. The museum and peace memorial there really humanizes the effects of that atrocious weapon, now hundreds of times more lethal. No one in their right mind would consider using or creating such a weapon ever again. And yet . . .

This persecution is disgusting. If you saw what she was wearing that was so offensive to the religious extremists who permeate and control the governments in the Middle East, you would otherwise laugh. But this is no laughing matter in a supposedly relatively modern Muslim country. What are the prosecutors going to press on with, cutting off her legs as punishment?

Too bad we are not all living in the twenty-first century rather than before the age of enlightenment.

Sad, very sad

Posted in: Tokyo 2020 Olympic organizers to change more event starting times to beat heat See in context

Marathons are not typically held during the summer. They are, however, held during the "cooler" months in places with hot climates, meaning that there are marathons all the time in weather warmer than what it most likely will be in Tokyo. Marathons in the tropics typically begin at 4am or even 3am, in the dark. It's still hot, but it is better than when the sun comes out. Because this race is the Olympics, they want spectators, and that means a start at a more reasonable (to non-runners) hour. They also want to be able to run fast, which means that they can't run in the dark. But it also means that the athletes should all be running for less than 3 hours, which means that 6-7 is not an unreasonable time to begin.

Posted in: Japan's justice system under scrutiny over Ghosn's continued detention See in context

In Japan, once someone is arrested by prosecutors, most of the time it means the end of his carrier. Prosecutors control media by leaking various information to them to form a public image of a criminal. In addition, if he denies, usually he could be detained more than a year until the court judgement of the first instance. Since the conviction rate is more than 99 % in Japan, admitting a crime and seeking a bailout and suspended jail term is a better way as a defense strategy.

Posted in: Trump urges Mexico to send migrants home after border melee See in context

Trump called this right. Foreign nationals DO NOT have the right to demand entry to this country, riot or sneak in if refused, use children who are not their own as chattel when entering, make demands about how they are being treated when they get caught, and complain about conditions when they find work under the table, against the law. This country is already unstable and volatile enough, we have our own staggering problems right now that we need to solve, and cannot take all comers, especially not those who demonstrate complete disregard for the law before they even enter. This is exactly the sort of issue that could swing the 2020 election away from the Dems, we must have secure borders.

Good. Maybe Mexico will try harder to stop the next horde if they know that they'll get stuck with them.
