Think Of It This Way

Brennan’s Word

Former CIA Director Brennan

(check my post on Brennan’s War)

testified on the Intel hearing

that he does not know of any conclusive evidence of

collusion between Trump and the Russians

regarding the last election

that put Trump up as President of the US.

If this hearing was for the benefit of the public

there were questions left unanswered

which put the public into limbo

as to what conclusions they would make

regarding  the justification of the whole thing.

Two things were clear, though,

and one is that the FBI,

and the rest of the intel establishment,

are scared of Russia.

an Putin especially.

That Putin is trying to bring down the American

democratic system

I say this is impossible.

Ask any American, any Canadian, any French, German, and British,

Swiss, Swedish, and so forth

if this is possible.

Another thing is that blogs and write-ups, and journalists

and twitter, and so forth,

are being paid to do what they do

just like what I am doing now!

HEYYYY!

I think I am missing on something.

But Brennan never said to whom I should file for compensation—-

to Trump or to Putin?

maybe retroactive pay, eh?

The Russian Sentiment

The attempt of the trumpateers to muddle

the administration of Trump

and criticize his every move to talk to the Russians

has gained the sentiments of the Russian people.

And Trumps is becoming more endeared to the Russian people

more than any other president.

Intelligence Sharing

And finally it sinks in

to the American Intelligence Community

that the sharing of inntelligence

between Israel, Russia, and the US

has been initiated.

As a result, this project, when finalized,

would be ten times as effective

than any intelligence gathering of any country.

It should eventually prove the uselessness of the

FBI, the CIA and whatever.

Their budgets will surely be reviewed.

The American Intelligence Community naturally

would not like such a situation that reduce their usefulness,

and, summarily, their budgets.

So they joined the Trumpateers in their effort

to have the President impeached.

Too late the die is done.

Thanks to Flynn,

he initiated the contact about the sharing of intelligence.

And he is one who would take the fall for the President.

Press-umptions

And what do the American press manage to put out?

Press-sumptions,

‘Ats wot it is

press-umptions!

Hearsay

when without privy to the event.

eh wot?

The Color of Trump

Leaving the US for official state functions abroad

President Donald Trump leaves behind a lot of anxieties,

mostly from the press and other

Trumpateers.

It would be surprising indeed should they discover

that Donald Trump has become endearing

to the people abroad.

The fact that he has become the first American President

who actually fights against American bureaucracy

and arrogance

has made a big impression on the Russians

the Muslims,

and the Third World countries.

He has actually become the wealthy President

that they can relate to.

Furthermore, he is one American President

who will not need permission to do

the President’s job.

For some particular areas of the world

he is not one ugly American,

but the one colorful American President.

The Commencement Speech

The Trump speech at the Coast Guard Commencement Exercises

did not mention anything about FBI and lackluster Comey,

giving the impression that the news about

the whole thing

is irrelevant.

Interestingly enough, a lot of Trump’s adversaries

are mostly women.

(mamma mia!)

The Russian Hand…

Vladimir Putin, the Russian President,

has offered a transcript of the meeting between Lavrov and Trump

to help prove that no American classified secret were compromised.

This is not only a gesture to help President Trump

but is actually a handshake being offered by the Russians

to the American wealthy who are hell bent on

proclaiming Russia as an enemy

to further their own personal aggrandisement.

I do doubt that the American hierarchy will accept this goodwill

and offer to accept the handshake.

handshakes, for them,

do not result in monetary profits.

Protocol

Personally, again, it would be smart for me as an American President

(I wish)

to allow an FBI investigation on matters relevant to Russia

if the Russian diplomats are coming for a formal visit.

Protocol says so.

So does etiquette.

So does hospitality.

Obstruction of Justice

Personally, I would not acuuse anybody of obstructing justice

if there was no crime committed,

otherwise such an accusation is mischievous.

Trump Gives away American Secrets to Russia…..

I knew it! I knew it!

I knew he would give away to the Russians

the American secret of making skinless hotdogs!!!!

and I thought the press was excluded from the US-Russia meeting….

The Middle Class

Remember the middle class?

Most of which belong to the agricultural portion of the country?

These people would rather feed their cows and hogs

than watch CNN or whatever?

Trump speaks for them,

owns their loyalty.

Whatever the press and hostile elements say against Trump,

these people will not believe.

Rather, the attacks strengthen their trust on Trump.

The only party that can bring Trump down decisively

would be that party that belongs to the middle class,

not those that earn a living

without shedding blood or sweat.

FBI Director Sacked!

YUP! Comey never knew what got him!

He only knew he lost his job

when he watched his tv set.

And again, Trump’s people blame him

before they find out why.

The reason can only be

that Comey did not do what he said he will do.

Comey must be gathering more info than is required of his project.

Information, the Americans will find out later, IS POWER.

Remember J. Edgar Hoover?

He held some Presidents under his will

because he owned some particular info about them.

The Americans should also remember that the FBI

has failed in some important events that the country had to suffer.

One of these is September 11.

The Americans should blame Trump on the results of his actions

and not on his decisions.

And maybe, they should once in a while give him some

applause for that which he did well.

As for international criticisms,

the Americans should not worry.

Trump has given the world the impression

that he can accomplish things without the tedious procedures

of asking permissions to act.

Forget about the weirdness in Trump.

GIVE TRUMP THE ELBOW ROOM THAT HE NEEDS!!!!

Scotia McLeod/Scotiabank Comes Through

Referring to my last post

regarding the lack of funds to cover the withdrawal

of the Registered Savings,

a glance at my checking account today revealed

the amount in question being deposited.

It looks like I spoke too soon.

Or did I?

Whatever it is,

the Bank of Nova Scotia

and the Scotia McLeod investments

came through.

I was right on one thing though,

it did not require the the Ombudsman to intervene

to get things accomplished.

I have said that while the Ombudsman in banks

exerts  very intimidating proddings to get things done,

the President of the Bank of Nova Scotia

has the more direct drive to see things through.

This is analogous to the Ombudsman using the broom

as against the Bank President wielding a hammer.

Get it?

I  GUESS  APOLOGIES  ARE  NECESSARY

AND  I  DO DIRECT  THESE TO THE

AFOREMENTIONED  FINANCIAL  INSTITUTIONS!!!

Scotia McLeod / Scotiabank RRIF a Scam

I do hope that I am mistaken

because I have yet to get the money deposited.

Transactions were made thru the

Bank of Nova Scotia

to convert RRSP’s to RRIF.

Now the RRIF has to be withdrawn fully

and papers were prepared

in a Bank of Nova Scotia branch.

That was last February 15.

No word has come from the bank

nor from Scotia McLeod

about the process of withdrawal.

The President of the Bank of Nova Scotia

has started an investigation into this matter

but how long would it take to find out

if they have the money to cover the withdrawal amount?

What I do know is that the notation placed on this account

is that this was slated “to be dispersed to the checking account”

It did not say when, though.

But what I get from the email coming from the

office of the President of the Bank of Nova Scotia

is that I have the right to take my case to

the Ombudsman of the banks.

Of course, but that process would incur more stalling time.

If the bank does not have the money to cover this small amount

it should notify the Canadian government so that

they can get another bailout.

Meantime, the Bank of Nova Scotia

and/or ScotiaMcLeod

are stalling for time.

The Hacking Cough

After they have thrown the kitchen sink at Trump

they now throw this cough at him,

or more precisely,

a hacking cough,

or that cough that makes one gaggle

and suffer pains in the chest.

Buckley’s may work on this type of coughs

and maybe not Trump’s.

Now every other country in the world hacks

every other country in the world.

France, Germany, Russia, North Korea,

China, Paskistan,

and just about any country with internet technology.

All this hacking needs is the intercept of communications

and the tap into a server that keeps files.

it is no big deal with its requirements.

Now the American intelligence communities publicize

that Russia has hacked the American elections.

Of course it did.

So did everybody else.

In fact they do this all the time

and in all events (important or not).

If the American intelligence community makes a big deal

out of it now,

boy, they are not exactly intelligent.

The Russian hacking of the elections has them gaggled

and they are coughing it out against Trump.

I say again, Shades of j. Edgar Hoover,

the intelligence community is paranoid,

nay, desperate

in keeping their jobs.

(this website of mine is actually being hacked at all times of the day in the effort to find out where I get my items. Think of it this way—-The walls have ears—so I keep saying)

War Strategy in the Middle East

War strategy in the Middle East may still conform

to those of the Afrika Korps and the Arab Legion,

but with some significant critiques.

Presently, there has been no utilization of such weapons  as

helicopter gunships, or modern heavy tanks.

The introduction of shoulder-fired missiles prohibits

the use of these weapons.

These are also vulnerable to sandstorms which

gets in through the filters.

The main thing, though, was the utter disregard

for the benefits from battle strategies

such as the simple siege.

The reason for the extended life of the pseudo army

that is the ISIS is that it still enjoys an endless

supply of provisions and ammunition.

A siege of an area such as Mosul would surround the city

and their supply lines would be cut.

The idea is to block communication from the rear.

But then again, sieges are ancient strategy,

but they will still work.

The Kitchen Sink

The losers of the last American Presidential election

have thrown every swipe at the winner,

Donald Trump, in their attempt

de-legitimize the newly elected

President,

which is Donald Trump.

They have thrown everything at Trump

but the kitchen sink.

The components of the American Intelligence Community

have rolled out the rumor

that Russian hacking have influenced the election results.

This is a no-brainer swipe,

meaning that those who thought of this

literally have no brains.

Hacking is one thing.

Hacking to influence millions of voters,

or even change the results,

is another thing,

and is not only next to impossible.

IT IS impossible.

The most practicable way for the Russians

to help put up Trump as President

is for Putin to stand at the corner,

wearing a wig,

to wink and smile with coyness at every voter,

who then scampers to vote for Trump.

The reason for the rumor is that the Intelligence Community

is afraid that Trump will privatize these institutions

and hire the KGB to do its work.

With the failure of the less than Intelligence Community

to rile up Trump,

the Electoral College now steps in

to take up the PRRRRST effort.

More no-brainers.

Their function is to declare the winner of the elections

as determined from the legitimate results.

They are not supposed to scrutinize the qualifications

of the winner.

The voters have already done this function.

Consider now this Electoral College nuisance

AS THE THROWN KITCHEN  SINK!

But I do not see

Donald Trump ducking it.

He only quacks at it!

Good for him—keep cool, man.

Their beef should be directed to the Constitution!

Protectionism

Trump’s America will shift to protectionism

within the nascent stage of his administration.

The country will retreat into a shell

to replenish its resources

and re-fashion its mode of international relationships.

It has to, if only to retain the dominance

of the American dollar.

Inside this shell, America will rejuvenate

and thusly will it resume its

leading position in the world.

In the past years, America over-extended

its military influence,

always in mind the threat of Russian aggression.

This was a mistake.

The world does not have to bow and kow-tow to America

for the Americans to lead.

Besides, Russia has enough of its own domestic problems

to challenge America for world domination.

And China?

This country will have problems feeding

its own people

and will retain the American currency for foreign transactions.

I believe that America will retreat into

a shell of its own making

to heal and restore its resources

for another try in world domination

via business transactions.

At Arm’s Length

This phrase may be one key

to President Trump’s conflict of interest predicament.

He should consider transactions with his companies,

or with his siblings,

at arm’s length,

meaning to say that no undue

personal consideration is being afforded

his siblings or his companies.

After all, a conflict of interest may be brought up

if there is suspicion that transactions

were influenced by personal considerations.

When dealing at arm’s length

the transactions are purely business in nature.

US/Taiwan/China

Again the American experts on international diplomacy

have got it wrong when they believe

that Trump’s talk with the Taiwanese President

will shatter US-Chinese relations,

what with China considering that Taiwan is Chinese territory.

The relations between China and Taiwan

has nothing to do with the relations

between China and the US.

Until after the UN accepts that China has sovereignty over Taiwan

would the US refrain from having diplomatic ties with Taiwan.

The US having relations with Palestine

is not an act of war against Israel.

Russia having relations with China

is not an act of war against NATO.

Iran having relations with Syria

is not an act of war against the US.

Thinking otherwise is very like childish jealousies.

There has been a rash of ignorance being publicized

by the tv commentators on just about everything.

They should be ashamed of themselves.

Being a sensation on tv is one thing.

Being stupid is another.

 

Naïve Diplomacy

duterte103

Naïve Diplomacy.mp4

The naivete of Rodrigo Duterte’s diplomacy

is reminiscent of Fidel Castro’s.

The latter was compelled to go the Russian way

by events contrary to his revolutionary objective.

His was not communist leanings,

merely socialist

brought out by his desire to alleviate his people’s sufferings.

Very much like Fidel Castro, Duterte resents

being ordered around and intimidated

to do things against his good presidential judgement

by those who profess to help the country.

It is to be recalled that Fidel Castro succeeded

in preventing his country to be converted

into a gigantic casino by US business enterprises.

It was a lot better for Fidel Castro

to be a Dictator than

being dictated upon.

Russia’s help was without sanctions nor puppet strings.

Presently, force of circumstances are forcing

President Rodrigo Duterte

to have this simple, naïve diplomacy.

Heck, it’s a better alternative to begging.

Rudy Giuliani

When all things are even,

Rudy Giuliani would have  a more compelling persona internationally

because he knows how terrorists can

devastate a city.

He was mayor of one of these cities

which was devastated by Al Qaeda.

And he did damage work literally!

Faltering Protests

The protests against Trump

on the basis of presumptions

is faltering.

The number of people is thinning out.

Perhaps the protesters are slowly getting a handle

of what Trump really means from his words.

Or maybe the money is running out.

Just wait till winter starts.

The media, of course, will continue bashing Trump.

They cannot accept the fact that the media is now

eating its own words.

It is still in denial mode!

Security Clearance For Trump’s Children

If any of Trump’s children

inadvertently or accidentally

or even suspiciously receive

top secret national security information,

purportedly coming from Trump himself,

this makes President Trump eligible

for impeachment proceedings.

Such proceedings will not happen if Trump’s

children has security clearance and are thus

legally qualified to receive any national security information.

On the side,

it is now obvious that the new White House Staff

has started to work.

Good thinking!
