CHINA HAS USED NORTH KOREA TO PLAY AMERICA FOR A FOOL: AND SADDLED AMERICA WITH THE CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS ALL OVER AGAIN

A CHINESE CREATION.

Get Smart: China created / allowed North Korea  to be our enemy.  China has used it to hogtie America for decades.  Why?  Because China benefits from it – all at no cost to China. China has had the best of both worlds from North Korea: it ties up America military might and bleeds American wealth and gets:

*  China forced America’s military might to be devoted to North Korea; leaving China free to develop its own military might to rival America in Asia.

*  China now gets a free hand to develop military resources in the South China Sea while America is tied up protecting South Korea, Japan and now the U.S. against North Korea.

*  China gets to trade, unfairly, with the U.S. going along with it – hoping that China will help on North Korea.

*  China gets to wipe our plate with the greatest transfer of jobs and wealth in the shortest period of time from one country to another that the world has ever known.

*  China gets to stick a very costly North Korean thorn in our side and in the heart of our friends and allies, South Korea and Japan.

*   it diverts the U.S. to concentrate on North Korea and looking out for our friends and allies, instead of dealing with the real problems that exist with China.

TAKE PRESIDENT KENNEDY’S WORD:  FAILING TO REMOVE MISSILES FROM NORTH KOREA – IS AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE.

North Korea’s missile program must be stopped – now –  before they are operational.  North Korea’s atomic bomb warhead programs must be stopped – now –  before they are operational.

Heed President Kennedy –  and brother Attorney General Kennedy in the Cuban Missile Crisis:

“ President Kennedy: It looks really mean [big strong U.S. against little bitty Cuba], doesn’t it? But on the other hand, there wasn’t any choice.

“ Robert Kennedy, referring to the blockade: Well, there isn’t. I mean (if you hadn’t), you would have been impeached.

“ President Kennedy: Well, I think I would have been impeached.”

( L.A. Times, “And Now, All the Presidents’ Words”, quoting (“The Kennedy Tapes,” by May &  Zelikow (Harvard University Press), http://articles.latimes.com/1997/oct/17/news/ls-43562 )

PART OF THE SOLUTION:  EMBARGO NORTH KOREA.

President Kennedy was cautious and imposed an exclusion and embargo on Cuba and the Soviets.  He took it as a step prior to a military strike.  It offered the possibility of a negotiation – which occurred.  It points the way to a negotiation that means something with North Korea.

When they have the ability to annihilate the West Coast, we have nothing to negotiate with.

PART OF THE SOLUTION:  TRADING WITH THE ENEMY ACT & INTERNATIONAL EMERGENCY ECONOMIC ACT –  APPLIED TO CHINA

It’s time to make China bear the cost of this deceitful game they are playing with us.  Like any good magician, China diverts our eyes from this ball, by “joining” us in “protesting” against North Korean behaviour – while being the sole support of the bully.   It must be made more costly for China to allow this North Korean badman / madman game, than the benefits it reaps from  it.

Sanction  China and use / interpret the Trading With The Enemy Act and/or International Emergency Economic Act.  North Korea is our enemy.  China trades with our enemy, our enemy survives only because China trades with it.  More importantly, North Korea behaves the way it does, because it doesn’t suffer from it.  It doesn’t suffer from it because China continues to support / sustain it.  And, it doesn’t suffer, because all the countries it bullies pay tribute to it.

Make China pay the costs of North Korean badman / madman  behavior.  Those costs are (at the least)  the military costs associated with our security guarantees and defense treaties with South Korea and Japan.  Surcharge all imports from China to cover these costs.

China has learned how to have all of America’s cake and eat it too.

It’s high time to get China to stop it and embargo North Korea !

DEMOCRATS’ POLITICS: 2 WRONGS MAKE A RIGHT !

Americans – meet our supreme hypocrites.  Democratic politicians teach that the ordinary rules don’t apply for them.

Democrats demand that for them:  2 wrongs make a right !

Democrats demand that for Republicans:  2 wrongs do not make a right !

Huh?  Trouble wrapping your head around that?  Here’s how Democrat “heads I win, tails you lose” logic and ethics works.

Republicans were wrong to deny Garland.  So Democrats have the “right” to be wrong to deny Gorsuch.

Republicans would be wrong to change the filibuster rule for Supremes.  But Democrats were “right” to change the filibuster rule for all federal judges.

Lesson for us normal Americans:

the more you get to know some Democrats, the better you like dogs.

TRUMP’S REAL (POTENTIAL) IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE: FAILING TO TAKE OUT NORTH KOREA’S NUCLEAR BLACKMAIL AGAINST THE U.S.

CHANNELING PRESIDENT KENNEDY – FAILING TO REMOVE MISSILES AND ATOMIC WARHEADS FROM NORTH KOREA – IS AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE.

NORTH KOREA’S MISSILE PROGRAM MUST BE STOPPED – NOW –  BEFORE THEY ARE OPERATIONAL.  NORTH KOREA’S ATOMIC BOMB WARHEAD PROGRAMS MUST BE STOPPED – NOW –  BEFORE THEY ARE OPERATIONAL.

LISTEN AND REMEMBER PRESIDENT KENNEDY AND BROTHER ATTORNEY GENERAL KENNEDY IN THE CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS:

“ President Kennedy: It looks really mean [big strong U.S. against little bitty Cuba], doesn’t it? But on the other hand, there wasn’t any choice.

 “ Robert Kennedy, referring to the blockade: Well, there isn’t. I mean (if you hadn’t), you would have been impeached.

“ President Kennedy: Well, I think I would have been impeached.”

( L.A. Times, “And Now, All the Presidents’ Words”, quoting (“The Kennedy Tapes,” by May &  Zelikow (Harvard University Press), http://articles.latimes.com/1997/oct/17/news/ls-43562 )

THIS OBSERVATION SHOULD HAVE APPLIED TO PRESIDENT OBAMA.  HE ESCAPED BY THE SKIN OF HIS TEETH.

IT NOW FALLS TO PRESIDENT TRUMP.  YOU CANNOT ALLOW NORTH KOREA TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO TAKE OUT THE WEST COAST – SEATTLE, SAN FRANCISCO & BAY AREA, AND LOS ANGELES; TO DESTROY THE WHOLE U.S. HIGH TECH INDUSTRY AND TO ANNIHILATE TENS OF MILLIONS OF AMERICAN CITIZENS.

      FAILING TO DO THAT IS THE REAL IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE.

NOT THE PETTY SOUR GRAPES OF DEMOCRATS OVER A LOST ELECTION.

IT TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE: ERDOGAN FASCIST’S REICHSTAG FIRE a la TURK !

SURE EVERYONE IS UPSET AT ERDOGAN CRYING NAZI RESURGENCE IN EVERY COUNTRY HE SENDS HIS HENCHMEN TO IN EUROPE.  ERDOGAN HAS BEEN A BUSY, BUSY BOY OF LATE STIRRING UP THE POT – YUP, HE’S BEEN A POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK.

BUT WHAT’S REALLY UNCANNY – AND UNNERVING –  IS HOW ALL THE ERDOGAN ACTIVITY MIRRORS HITLER’S STEPS IN HIS CONSOLIDATION OF POWER. ERDOGAN’S MOTIVATION AND GOALS ARE THE SAME POLITICAL GOALS HITLER HAD, ONCE CHANCELLOR, FOR TAKING COMPLETE POWER.

SO, EUROPEAN POLITICIANS ARE OFFENDED AND RESPOND WITH INDIGNANT RESPONSES THAT ERDOGAN WANTS TO FEED THE FIRE.

AH, FIRE.  THINK FIRE.  THINK REICHSTAG FIRE !  A PUT-UP JOB BY THE NAZIS.   IT’S ENOUGH TO MAKE YOU THINK – AND THINK HARD – ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT THE “GANG THAT COULDN’T SHOOT STRAIGHT” TURKEY MILITARY COUP WAS ALSO JUST AN ERDOGAN PUT-UP JOB !

WATCH HOW IT UNFOLDED.  HITLER IS NAMED CHANCELLOR.  HE DOESN’T HAVE A MAJORITY IN THE REICHSTAG (PARLIAMENT) AND HE PLOTS HOW TO GET A STATE OF EMERGENCY DECREE.  RIGHT AFTER – THE REICHSTAG BURNS.  AND THE NAZIS DRAG OUT A HALF-WIT ANARCHIST FORMER COMMUNIST AS FALL GUY AND THEN USE IT TO DRAG IN LEADERS OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY AS PART OF A CONSPIRACY.  HITLER THEN GETS HIS EMERGENCY DECREE TO PROTECT THE STATE AND “VOLK”.  HE THEN BANS THE COMMUNISTS FROM THE REICHSTAG.  HE THEN DOES THE SAME THING FOR THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATS.  LO AND BEHOLD – PARLIAMENTARY MAJORITY AND CONTROL.  AND THEN “GLEICHSCHALTUNG”: EVERY ORGAN AND INSTITUTION IN THE COUNTRY IS  REDONE TO NAZI FORMULA AND CONTROL.

ERDOGAN WANTS THE SAME CONTROL.  HE NEEDS A REFERENDUM TO CHANGE THE SYSTEM TO GIVE HIM CONTROL.  THE POPULATION SEEMS TO BE  AGAINST.   THE LONG-STANDING KURDISH INSURGENCY SEEMS QUIET; THEIR PARTY IS EVEN NOW IN THE PARLIAMENT.  SO, CONVENIENTLY HE HAS TERRORIST INCIDENTS AND GETS THE KURDISH PARTY OUT OF PARLIAMENT.

IT SEEMS THAT THIS HAS NOT SWAYED THE POPULATION ENOUGH TO WIN THE REFERENDUM.  SO, CONVENIENTLY, THERE IS THE WORST PLANNED, MOST AMATEURISH MILITARY COUP IN A MILLENIUM OF TURKISH MILITARY HISTORY !  DON’T YA JUST BET THAT THEY WERE EUCHERED INTO IT.

AND ERDOGAN GETS HIS STATE OF EMERGENCY DECREE.  AND THEN THE OPPOSITION – POLITICIANS – JOURNALISTS – ARTISTS – INTELLECTUALS – GOVERNMENT SERVANTS ARE SWEPT AWAY, BY THE TENS OF THOUSANDS.  AND SUDDENLY IT’S “NO” TO SAYING THE WORD “NO” TO THE REFERENDUM.  ERDOGAN AND THE TURKISH GOVERNMENT DECLARE THAT IF YOU SAY NO  TO THE REFERENDUM – YOU ARE SIDING WITH THE COUP AND TERRORISTS !

 

BUT EVEN THAT HAS LEFT ERDOGAN UNCERTAIN WHETHER HE CAN WIN FULL CONTROL OF THE GOVERNMENT.  AND SO HE STARTS A NEW CAMPAIGN – TO PICK FIGHTS WITH EVERYBODY UNDER THE SUN TO GET TURKISH VOTERS UPSET AT THE UPSET OF THE POLITICIANS AND COUNTRIES ERDOGAN PURPOSELY UPSET BY CALLING THEM NAZIS AND FASCISTS IN THE FIRST PLACE.

YUP.  IT TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE.

SURPRISE: TRUMP’S INAUGURAL REPRISED THE GREATEST POLITICAL SPEECH IN TWO THOUSAND YEARS !

Huh, you say?  Yes, Trump actually gave to us again the greatest  political speech ever given in history by channeling Tiberius Gracchus !

Trump’s genius is that, in plain English, he actually laid down for all of us again the foundational, the greatest political speech for freedom, livlihood and for democracy which has echoed down the centuries for the past 2000 years. It is heard in our own foundational Declaration of Independence which mirrors Gracchus in its call for all of  the values we hold dear and inalienable.

So, what gives? Even post campaign, this is still the Tale of the Blind Men and the Elephant, all over again. The blindness of the fourth estate and the political class was self-evident throughout the campaign.  They heard, but did not hear – the speech.  So why the uniformly bleak and dismal characterization by the political class and the fourth estate?

For such smart and educated people – who obviously know it was Gracchus’ great speech –  the only explanation is that they are out to get Trump – the night of the long knives – propaganda warfare masquerading as “truth” in furtherance of an unspoken agenda.

None of these arrogant blind politicians and their media remora ever thought to ask the elephant.  And so, for their benefit, the American elephant channels Tiberius Gracchus:

“EVEN AMERICA’S WILD ANIMALS HAVE THEIR OWN DENS TO BE SAFE IN.

“BUT, WHAT DO THE FAMILIES WHO LIVE AND WORK TO MAKE AMERICA STRONG AND HEALTHY HAVE FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR CHILDREN?

“BUT,  WHAT DO THE MEN WHO FIGHT AND RISK THEIR LIVES FOR AMERICA HAVE FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES?

“THEY HAVE NO HOME TO CALL THEIR OWN; NO PROSPECTS FOR THEMSELVES; AND.NO FUTURE TO BE SECURE FOR THEIR CHILDREN.

“ALL THEY REALLY HAVE TO CALL THEIR OWN IS LYING POLITICIANS AND THEIR MEDIA GANG FEEDING THEM ILLUSIONS OF SHARING IN AMERICA’S WEALTH.

“ISN’T IT FAIR AND JUST – THAT CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME?

“IS A CITIZEN INFERIOR TO AN ILLEGAL ALIEN?  WHO IS A BETTER PATRIOT – AN ALIEN OR ONE WHO HAS A STAKE IN HIS COUNTRY’S SOIL?

“THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE WON BY HARD WORK AND INDUSTRY OUR NATIONAL WEALTH.

“BUT NOW WE ARE IN DANGER:  OUR VERY OWN POLITICIANS SLICE AND DICE US UP INTO COMPETING GROUPS.  THE POLITICIANS FOSTER OUR DISCORD AND THEREBY INSURE OUR WEAKNESS AMONGST OURSELVES – ALL TO THEIR BENEFIT,  WHILE WE ARE BEING ROBBED OF WHAT WE HAVE WORKED FOR.

“POLITICIANS BOW TO THE WILL OF OUR “CAPTAINS OF INDUSTRY” AND FEED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WITH THE SWILL  – THAT PROGRESS MEANS THAT IT’S OK TO SACRIFICE AMERICA’S JOBS TO THE NEED AND GREED OF THIS NEW MULTI-NATIONAL AMERICAN “NOBILITY”.

“AND  STILL THE POLITICIANS EGG US ON TO VOTE – WITH HALF TRUTHS THAT OUR VOTE IS REALLY FOR OUR OWN HAPPINESS AND PROSPERITY .

“BUT NOW, THE TIME HAS COME.  THE AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW THE WHOLE TRUTH  – THAT VOTING FOR PROFESSIONAL POLITICIANS IS FOR THE POLITICIANS’ OWN HAPPINESS AND PROSPERITY; AND TO KEEP THE POLITICIANS IN OFFICE.

“SO WHAT ABOUT OUR POLITICAL CLASS?  A POLITICIAN OUGHT TO BE RESPECTED, BECAUSE IN A FASHION WE HAVE “CONSECRATED” THEM TO BE THE GUARDIANS AND PROTECTORS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

“BUT NOW THE POLITICAL CLASS HAS DEGENERATED INTO A SELF-PERPETUATING GROUP – FIRST “PROFESSIONAL” OFFICE-HOLDERS; AND THEN AFTER THEIR OFFICE TERMS, HAND-MAIDENS TO THE MULTI-NATIONAL AMERICAN “NOBILITY”  – EARNING MILLIONS AND AGAIN MILLIONS FOR A FEW HOURS SPEECHIFYING OR OTHER “HONORIFIC” ACTIVITIES.

 “IN TRUTH, THIS POLITICAL CLASS HOLDS OFFICE BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLES’ VOTES.

“YET THIS POLITICAL CLASS ACTS THE WAY KINGS RULED WHICH UNDERSTANDS THAT THEY HAVE ALL POWER AND AUTHORITY  – WHILE FAKING OBEISANCE TO THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

“IN SHORT,  THIS POLITICAL CLASS WHICH HAS DIMINISHED THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE HAS CEASED TO BE PRIVILEGED TO SERVE AT THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.”

YES, THE ELEPHANT HAS BEEN SPEAKING,

BUT OUR POLITICIANS ARE NOT JUST BLIND, BUT DEAF AND DUMB.

HOW TO MAKE MEXICO PAY: FUND BUILDING A FENCE BY “USER FEES” ON MONEY TRANSFERS AND BORDER CROSSING BY ILLEGAL ALIENS aka “UNDOCUMENT IMMIGRANTS”

Mexicans in the U.S. transfer huge amounts of money to Mexico.  These remittances pre-recession were in the area of $26 billion annually and climbing !  Now post-recession some $25 billion and climbing again.

(1)  Require a use fee on all remittances to Mexico.

(2)  A 2% transfer fee would raise $500,000,000 annually !

(3)  Exempt all persons who can show that they are legally here and/or that they have a paycheck with required deductions and that it is therefore not untaxed money.

Charge a service fee for all persons stopped crossing the border illegally.

(1)  Some 300,000 plus persons are caught illegally crossing the border.

(2)   $200 service fee would raise $60,000,000 plus annually !

(3)  This is no more than the cost for a tourist visa extension request !

Then leave it to the Mexican government to determine if they want to reimburse their citizens.

And then Mexico can have its cake and eat it too:  it does not pay the U.S. and saves face; but yet may pay its citizens back – FOR MEXICO’S USE OF THE UNITED STATES !!

OBAMA, LIKE MOSES, EXILED FROM AMERICA, OUR PROMISED LAND

Do we clap or do we weep?  A real life Greek Tragedy now comes to its end.  The hero of this tragedy is of course President Obama with America the setting and the American People both the chorus and the audience.

We can’t figure out who Obama really is. It seems hard to believe, but somehow we get the feeling that Obama, elected by the American people to be the most powerful man in the world, resents the very American people who elected him!

How can that be? How can you be both the beneficiary of the greatest gift that we can give, enjoy all that honor and respect; and at the same time be angry with us as gift-giver?

Obama could have been and should have been the American Moses leading us out of the dilemma and harm of that great divide between the genius of our founding documents and fathers and the legacy of 3/5’s of a person, slavery.

Obama (as an American Dr. Jekyll) adopted the very spirit and values of America as his plea to the American people – vote for me – and then you and I, together, we can change America so that the values of America will “finally” be realized in fact and not just in fiction.

Obama offered up to the American people the ability to confront that challenge in its current form today, and bless us, the American people were up to that challenge. In concrete terms, the most important and sacred Deed the American People had to do became reality: a man was judged as ‘nothing but a man’ and picked to lead us. No longer 3/5’s of a man, but just a whole man.

But, Obama,this American Hero, has been brought down by his own conflicts.  So we come to one irony of the matter.  Obama also harbored a resentment of America; and a negative or skeptical evaluation of the spirit and values of America. Obama (as an American Mr. Hyde) had an additional, unstated, agenda. That agenda is to punish, to take revenge for the “fact” that the spirit and values of America were to him “fiction”.

This tragedy is one of great pain and harm – but this time, not only to Obama,  but to America and to the American People.  And so we also come to the supreme irony:  Obama, entered and lives in our American Promised Land, but exiles himself with this resentment of America from communing with the Promised Land – an American Moses who has exiled himself from America.  An American Tragedy.
