It’s Not Donald Trump’s Presidency That’s Highly Abnormal. It’s Trump

“After picking just three women to serve on his 23-person Cabinet, President Trump isn’t doing any better with his U.S. Attorney nominees. Of the 42 people he has nominated so far, only one is a woman, BuzzFeed News reported.
 
Ninety-three U.S. attorneys serve as the country’s lead federal prosecutors, heading offices across the country. When Trump abruptly asked for the resignations of all Obama-era U.S. attorneys in March, it left 90 of those 93 spots in district offices empty.”
 
See Donald Trump’s highly abnormal presidency: the week of Sept. 11
People keep making apologies for Trump, that’s he’s not a politician, that he lacks experience, or that he just speaks his mind. Those are true but they are just the window-dressing of the problem. Trump’s absolutely nuts. No one in their right mind would plan on “winging it” or not having a plan to run something as complex as the government of the USA. Trump doesn’t have a plan at all, or if he does make one up, he changes it by breakfast time. He does all kinds of things that make no sense even to supporters, like depopulating the Department of State, banning one or another classes of people from USA not based on reason just who they are, building a wall that can’t be built at great expense for no purpose that anyone can see, and threatening dire consequences repeatedly and backing off. He trumpeted that Obama had no plan or that Obama was weak but Trump has less of a plan and is weaker.

This is the 21st century yet Trump has fewer blacks and women in positions of power in his government than any government since I was a teenager. He’s not making USA great again. He’s taking it backwards. He’s touted the military power of USA but lets China and Russia do what they want. Even the Iranians are still harassing the USA’s navy in the Gulf. Russia hasn’t been forced to give back Crimea. Russia is still bombing civilians with impunity in Syria and North Korea is doing and saying more outrageous stuff than they ever did with Obama. Trump said it would be easy to make things right but he had no clue then and he has no clue now. The “Law and Order” president is OK with Nazis terrorizing ordinary people in the streets of USA but blacks and anti-Nazis should stay in their places. His “inJustice Department” is scaling back supervision/monitoring of rogue police. He’s out to lunch and should be fired immediately before he causes mass slaughter.

He’s right to claim he’s not a white supremacist. That would require an idea, some concept of a goal. He has no goal except chaos. We don’t need that. We don’t want that. We don’t need Trump. We don’t want Trump. Impeach him for high crimes and misdemeanours. Declare him incompetent and replace him. Get on with it.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christianity_in_Iran#Current_situation
    Grece Iran is not a simple problem when it comes to Christianity. Those with Iran citizenship and Christian are protected under Iran law including the right to eat non Muslim food and live non Muslim life style out in the open.

    What are the Christian massacres about. This is a interesting one. They are Christian groups formally without citizenship. Most of these are historic groups who country no longer exists. Iran you don’t come Iran citizen just because you are born in Iran. So when Iran gets too much of a anti illegal immigration bent you see Christians die in Iran. This is why you don’t want the president of USA not having a clear and clean and balance policies over illegals entering USA or otherwise the his words might be used justify massacres in Iran and other places.

    Iran and Saudi Arabia are very different cases. You want to be a Christian missionary and go to Iran you can there will be paper work and a course to take to prove that you can read and write in the common Christian languages of Iran.

    Saudi Arabia that is a black op mission with risk of death.

    This is the thing Iran is made out as a villain but most of cases Iran is a better country in treatment of its population than Saudi Arabia that the USA supported. The big problem in Iran is getting people who need protection recognized if they are not citizens. Most of the times Iran treats is population better than the USA government treats the USA population.

    Grece basically you have fallen for USA missing fact media. A lot of the Christian media in the USA over look the problem in Iran is a simple lack of citizenship problem instead focus on that its religion grounds. This also ignores the Muslim who are illegally in Iran who get massacred at the same times the Christian do. The shocking reality about Iran to a lot of people is it does have proper freedom of religion. Iran and you are there not matter the religion you are if you are not a citizen you better be careful because citizenship is critical to getting police and mil assistance if stuff goes wrong in Iran as they have a protect citizens first policy. Iran has a nasty bit of law that if you are not citizen they don’t need to even count you death or investigate if they have a citizen dead at the time.

    They do, undercover.

    The scary part is we can in fact tell who who with MRI scan. Same way you can detect racist. The response to displayed images in a MRI are not able to be deceived.

    Problem for the USA is using this tech would breach the first amendment allowing freedom of religion. Its also not a fast process shoving a person in a MRI and showing them a long list of images to work out region responses. Only way to avoid a test like this is have no vision.

    Yes you don’t have to tell anyone you religion it can be decoded from a deck of images and a MRI scan while you were shown images. In the process you can find other things like racism.

    Then why do so many Muslim priests refuse to condemn Mulsim terrorists and sex assaults by Muslims?
    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/70000-indian-muslim-clerics-issue-fatwa-against-isis-the-taliban-al-qaida-and-other-terror-groups-a6768191.html
    This question causes me to have many wondering why. Thinking the largest sections of the Islamic on the earth were 90 percent+ of the clerics/priests to talk directly against terrorists and sex assaults. So why do areas like the USA don’t match the Islamic world normal.

  5. kurkosdr says:

    There are extremists in Islam just as there are extremists in any group, even the GOP, but they are a small fraction.

    Then why do so many Muslim priests refuse to condemn Mulsim terrorists and sex assaults by Muslims? Look, I understand there is a bunch of Shia Muslims who are good people, but the majority of them are Sunnis (and Sunnis pretending to be Shia) and they believe in the ideology I mentioned. How can you tell who is who? You can’t.

  6. Kurksodr wrote, “If you start seeing Islam not as a religion, but as an ideology which preaches that the Earth belongs exclusively to those who follow the ideology and everyone else has “stolen” their land, it all starts magically make sense.”

    Of course, that’s nonsense so none of Kurkosdr’s comment makes any sense at all. Islam is a religion in every sense of the word. I’ve lived amongst Muslims. There are extremists in Islam just as there are extremists in any group, even the GOP, but they are a small fraction. Muslims I’ve known were the kindest and most gentle people I’ve ever known with the exception of one Buddhist who would not kill a fly but gave it an escort out of her home. If anything I’d say Muslims are “too gentle” if that’s possible. They give so much dedication to God and religion that they may neglect dealing with some evils in the world like Trump and other Murdering Bastards, but no one’s perfect.

    I know Christians who neglect important matters too. e.g. I know Christians who work hard raising money to support missionaries to Africa but totally neglect sending missionaries to northern Canada where they are sorely needed. I even said that in person to one missionary raising funds in my living room. The response was that God was calling her to Africa, a warm place…

  7. Kurkosdr says:

    Logically, there are more than a billion Muslims but only a few thousand terrorists, so he’s off by nearly a factor of a million.

    And those few thousand have the support, or at least the tolerance-by-silence, of many Muslim priests who refuse to openly condemn acts of terrorism or sex assault by muslims (yes, some of those priests are located in the West). Of course, those priests have the support of t many Muslims who are not terrorists themselves. Do you see the pyramid yet?

    PS: If you start seeing Islam not as a religion, but as an ideology which preaches that the Earth belongs exclusively to those who follow the ideology and everyone else has “stolen” their land, it all starts magically make sense.

  8. Deaf Spy says:

    Robert, did you actually read and comprehend your own source? I am forced to think you just picked two numbers out of it and ignored all the context.

  9. Deaf Spy says:

    Gibberish, Robert. When unemployment hits record low and businesses are optimistic because of reduced licenses, regulations and lower taxes, all such talks are gibberish. Absolutely irrelevant. Just noise.

    Funny how “elitists” and people how you don’t realize that constantly bashing Trump is making them look bad in the eyes of common people who get new jobs or whose small shops get a relief.

  10. Deaf Spy wrote, “this is a promise he is keeping at present”.

    See How Trump compares with Obama so far on jobs

    “Trump’s record of 863,000 jobs in five months is less than the 955,000 added during the same period a year ago. It also trails the first five months of Obama’s second term, when 1 million jobs were added, and the first five months of George W. Bush’s second term, when 1.2 million jobs were added.”

    So I can command the sea to retreat at high tide but because it happens doesn’t make my claims of god-like powers true. Actions speak louder than words. Trump is great at the loud words though. I’ll give him that. If you don’t know the meaning of his words nor compare what he says today with what he said a while ago, you’ll think he has god-like powers, but he doesn’t. He’s just a blowhard riding on the wind.

  11. Kurkosdr wrote, “This is what career politicians had in the 90s and not now: Significantly higher credibility compared to populist bafoons.”

    I have no difficulty with populists. The problem is that Trump isn’t one of them. He’s a privileged elitist exploiting the gullibility of the people. He substituted name-recognition and slogans into a facade of credibility. There’s no rational basis for considering Trump to say things like they are. e.g. He’s the only one who can solve the nation’s problems or that he will ensure 4% growth in the economy or that he will build a big beautiful wall across the country and that will do some good. He says things ignorant people want to hear like a wall will keep out illegal immigrants when 80% come in other ways, like illegal immigrants are taking their jobs when his supporters don’t work in the farmers’ fields under the hot sun, etc., like Muslims are terrorists. Logically, there are more than a billion Muslims but only a few thousand terrorists, so he’s off by nearly a factor of a million. Then he said he would put Iran and North Korea in their places and yet nothing has changed. Meanwhile, he’s making alliances with Putin to undermine USAian democracy. It’s a house of cards that Trump has built.

  12. Kurkosdr says:

    for such a task = for such a tax

  13. Kurkosdr says:

    They voted for Trump because he promised jobs and economic growth. Despite him spouting more lies per hour than most politicians do in a year, they fell for his lies/slogans/empty promises. That won’t happen again. Reality has crept into the discussion. Trump is worse than the politicians and insiders he railed against.

    So… if a babbling, lying bafoon like Trump could steal so many voters from career politicians like Hilary (compared to the 2012 elections), can we admit that they have a serious credibility problem? This is what career politicians had in the 90s and not now: Significantly higher credibility compared to populist bafoons.

    Also, the Dems have a serious SJW problem too. The “you didn’t build that” speech Obama gave must have scared a lot of people, giving them a red flag that the US is sliding towards soft socialism (whether this is true or not doesn’t matter in elections). This is why the US economy is growing under Trump. Trump never says “you didn’t build that” and people who build business are more at ease Trump won’t ask a “you didn’t build that” tax (whether Obama actually had any plans ask for such a task is irrelevant, perception is what matters).

    And there is the problem the Dems have. The Democrat party has been taken over by SJWs and by career politicians without significantly higher credibility compared to populist bafoons.

  14. Deaf Spy says:

    And this is a promise he is keeping at present:

    and
    https://www.uschamber.com/above-the-fold/optimistic-small-businesses-want-fewer-lending-regulations

    This is the reality and what people acknowledge. The rest is gibberish. Meaningless babblings from leftists “intellectuals”.

  15. Deaf Spy wrote, “If women did feel actually threatened by Trump, they would have flocked to Hillary”

    Women don’t feel threatened by Trump. He disgusts them. They voted for Trump because he promised jobs and economic growth. Despite him spouting more lies per hour than most politicians do in a year, they fell for his lies/slogans/empty promises. That won’t happen again. Reality has crept into the discussion. Trump is worse than the politicians and insiders he railed against.

  16. Deaf Spy says:

    54% of all women voted for Hillary.

    Too little of a difference. If women did feel actually threatened by Trump, they would have flocked to Hillary. That didn’t quite happen.

  17. kurkosdr says:

    he has made = she has made

  18. kurkosdr says:

    What about the non-white women? Aren’t they women too? 54% of all women voted for Hillary.

    Which, considering Trump’s views on abortion (=him being a male that wants to deprive women of their abortion right), his status as a sugardaddy who bought a marriage with a supermodel, and the constant indoctrination by the mass media about “having a woman in the oval office”, is an achievement itself. How did Hilary manage to get so few women votes considering her opponent has Donald J Trump?

    Answer: Because she is a career politician who charges hundreds of thousands of dollars in “speech fees” (read: bribes) and has publicly admitted being a career politician with a “public and private agenda”. Hilary isn’t just a career politician that sells to the high bidder, he has made that her primary image. It’s the same reason people hated the Hummer H2. It not only was a gus-guzzler, the entire brand revolved around the fact.

    Again, Trump didn’t win the presidency from Hilary, Hilary lost the presidency to Trump, because she failed to grasp that career politicians are generally reviled and it is not the 90s anymore.

  19. Deaf Spy wrote, “More than 50% of US white women voted for Trump.”

    What about the non-white women? Aren’t they women too? 54% of all women voted for Hillary.

  20. Deaf Spy says:

    Now you keep saying Trump is incompetent, but facts are that the business is highly optimistic, unemployment is record low, state spending are cut, licensing is reduced, taxes are cut…

    All is good, as you are fond of saying.

    Of course, leftists and intellectuals are squirming and screaming, but all these people can do is spend other people’s money.

  21. Deaf Spy says:

    He announced immediately that he hated .. women, … poor people,…

    Hm, I can’t speak for all listed, but lets focus on these two groups.

    More than 50% of US white women voted for Trump. Then, it was Hillary who called “poor people” “deplorables” and, perhaps for this, or for some other reason, “poor” white people also voted for Trump in scores…

    You obviously have got certain aspects wrong, Robert. People did vote for Trump and elected him a president. A fact you can’t just ignore. As just a passible impartial observer, I may say, because of Hilary. This woman did miracles to lose to Trump.

  22. Grece says:

    Therein lies the rub Robert. Trump speaks your mind, you, well, you never speak your mind unless it’s on this blog.

  23. Deaf Spy wrote, “I get the impression that Trump personally came to your home…”

    Trump’s the hater. I’m just returning the favour. He forced himself on the world’s consciousness. He announced immediately that he hated Mexicans, then women, then blacks and Hispanics, poor people,… He hates everyone except general officers and rich people. He’s a bully, a pompous ass and there’s nothing at all likeable about him. I suspect his family has developed callus tissue from all the cringe-worthy things he has said and done.

  24. Deaf Spy says:

    We don’t want Trump. Impeach him for high crimes and misdemeanours. Declare him incompetent and replace him.

    You can also go around Manitoba at sunset and order the sun not to settle down, Robert.

    It is weird, though. I get the impression that Trump personally came to your home, raped your wife, kicked the lights out of you with hard boots, ate all your veggies, pissed in all corners of your home, and took away the Chinese tractor and the Odroid with him. But hey, if it makes you happy to hate someone, well…

  25. Grece wrote, “Some of my friends are from Canada, and they all want to leave and come to the States.”

    Well, Canada takes in more than 3 times as many immigrants per annum as USA as a fraction of population. Those who leave to USA are replaced by others from other parts of the world. USA has about a million immigrants per annum but Canada has about 300000 with 1/10th the population. We love immigrants. They help our economy grow, foster investment and they work hard.

  26. Grece says:

    I have traveled to Canada numerous times Robert. I probably been to more places in your country then you have.

    Some of my friends are from Canada, and they all want to leave and come to the States.

    Here is a free-speech test Robert, you ready?

    In the month of December, start wishing the Mohammedans Merry Christmas.

  27. Grece wrote, “Canada is a not a free country in ANY sense of the word”.

    Maybe you should actually visit Canada and decide the matter. I am very free. I own firearms. I say and write whatever I want. I do not fear Muslims or much of anything except Trumpism. Canada was ranked second best country in the world in which to live. USA, number 7. Not bad, but I’ll stick with Canada as long as I can.

  28. Grece says:

    Robert talking out his ass, Canada is a not a free country in ANY sense of the word.

    Lets see, freedom of speech in Canada is not absolute. Section one of the your charter allows the government to pass laws that limit free expression. Imagine that!

    Also to add you have a higher cost of living, long wait times to see a doctor, who wants to move to a sheet hole like Canada? Followed by M103, female circumcision and Sharia sounds like a wonderful place Robert.

  29. Grece foolishly wrote, “Isn’t it fortunate Robert, you never have to come to the U.S. for anything? Just think in twenty years, Sharia law would be the norm in Montreal and Toronto.”

    Canada has a constitution, in case you didn’t know. Everyone’s rights are protected. Here’s our Bill of Rights.

    “It is hereby recognized and declared that in Canada there have existed and shall continue to exist without discrimination by reason of race, national origin, colour, religion or sex, the following human rights and fundamental freedoms, namely,
    (a) the right of the individual to life, liberty, security of the person and enjoyment of property, and the right not to be deprived thereof except by due process of law;
    (b) the right of the individual to equality before the law and the protection of the law;
    (c) freedom of religion;
    (d) freedom of speech;
    (e) freedom of assembly and association; and
    (f) freedom of the press.”

    Note, there’s no Second Amendment, but it should be familiar for good reason. It makes sense and is descended from a common source, England’s democracy.

    Isn’t it fortunate Robert, you never have to come to the U.S. for anything? Just think in twenty years, Sharia law would be the norm in Montreal and Toronto.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if those “progressive” countries end up rounding up their Muslim population and sterilising them. Can you imagine the average western feminist being forced to live like women live on Qatar and forced to treat sex assault incidents (like the ones that happened in Cologne) as a non-issue? Or not consume alcohol? You know, typical Sharia stuff. I can imagine their SJW ideals being quickly thrown out of the window when the threat becomes tangible enough. Just sit and watch what happens the decades that will follow, as the Sharia parties creep towards 50%.

    In fact, it is already happening. LePen’s results weren’t what they were just because of her anti-euro rhetoric.

  32. Grece says:

    We don’t need Trump. We don’t want Trump.

    Old Geezer Robert, bitches about Trump 24/7 from the flood plains of the Red River, in a shit-hole back-water suburb of Winnipeg.

    Representation by population is the cornerstone of democracy. OTOH, some people choose to be ruled by kings and tyrants.

  34. kurkosdr says:

    This is the 21st century yet Trump has fewer blacks and women in positions of power in his government than any government since I was a teenager.

    So what? As a white guy, I find it bizarre that women and blacks are somehow entitled by default to be an X% of a group’s formation because of some arbitrary “diversity” benchmark.

    Life isn’t like movies Pog, where the heroes’ group just happens to be a conveniently multicultural and gender diverse group. If women and minorities don’t want to deal with some fields, because of cultural reasons or whatever, this field will be less diverse. It’s what is happening with Computer Science: most graduates are males, so this field will be less diverse if meritocracy is to be upheld.

    Why meritocracy should be upheld? Because otherwise, you get people with Music Majors appointed head of security to firms like Equifax just because they are women (because diversity, duh), and we all know how this ended up.

    So, the bottom line is: Unless you can prove that Donald Trump used or not used meritocratic criteria to come up with the group’s formation, you can’t claim a thing about his intentions. Your assumptions don’t matter, give me facts if you have any, otherwise you have nothing and can claim nothing.

    Russia is still bombing civilians with impunity in Syria
    Boy boy… the world surely does moves quickly in this time and age. Apparently Syria just became the 51st state of the United States of America or a NATO ally and for that reason the US military has an obligation to protect Syria from Putin. Give me a sec…

    *checks Google*

    *checks Google again*

    *checks Wikipedia just in case*

    Nope. Which means that the USA has no reason to expend capital or risk military equipment or military personnel to protect Syria from Putin, because the US military is not the world’s policeman. In fact, one of the problem’s the US military has (and the reason it costs so much to US taxpayers) is the fact it is currently acting as a world’s policeman in too many countries. And you want them to act as a policeman in yet another country.

    Hay, here is an idea: How about YOU Canadians sending YOUR military to kick Putin’s butt out of Syria, and risk YOUR planes to Putin’s S-300 missiles and put YOUR military personnel in risk of getting killed by either Putin’s troops or ISIS, and leave the US decide for its own troops, instead of arrogantly proposing what the POTUS should do with the US military without YOU Pog even being a US citizen.

    and North Korea is doing and saying more outrageous stuff than they ever did with Obama.
    If YOU Canadians consider North Korea a serious threat and want to declaw North Korea and depose Stay-Puft Dictator Boy, how about sending YOUR military to North Korea, and risk YOUR planes to dictator boy’s anti-aircraft guns and put YOUR military personnel in risk of getting killed by North Korean troops, and leave the US decide for its own troops, instead if arrogantly proposing what the POTUS should do with the US military without YOU Pog even being a US citizen.

    We don’t need that. We don’t want that. We don’t need Trump. We don’t want Trump.
    YOU are not a US citizen, and hence your “WE” has no basis. If the US citizens consider Trump incompetent (and there are reasons for US citizens to do so, for example, his failure to limit what hospitals charge patients, making any form of affordable healthcare a pipe dream) or corrupt (again, there are reasons for that, such as his anti net-neutrality stance) or crazy (his anti-abortion stance), that’s for US citizens to decide, “we” non-US citizens have no say in the subject.
