The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

In some ways, his [Trump’s] position has evolved: from saying that the story of Russian interference was spread (and possibly invented) by sore-losing Democrats to conceding that Russia was behind the hacks of Democrats’ computer systems, and ultimately to confronting Russian President Vladimir Putin about the allegations.

But in other ways, Trump’s position has remained consistent: He maintains that even if Russia did interfere, that had no impact on the election’s outcome; he has repeatedly expressed doubt that Russia was behind the hacks (even after publicly saying it was); he has insisted that his campaign did not have any back-door dealings with Russia, calling claims to the contrary part of a political “witch hunt”; and he has defended those close to him as they have been accused of colluding with Moscow.

End quote

It doesn’t matter — he is “the Donald”. He’s rich and he can do whatever he wants.

a burg is a burg is a burg

Filed under: Germany, Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 2:28 pm

Years ago, a famous woman wrote a poem which had the words “a rose is a rose is a rose.”

Now I am proposing a poem that goes “a berg is a berg is a berg”.

The purpose of this new poem would be to teach Americans how to pronounce the word Hamburg. It is not pronounced like Hamburger, the meat that is eaten at McDonald’s.

The character on the right is dressed as a “Borg”, which is pronounced the same as the last syllable in Hamburg.

The following quote is from a news article, which you can read at https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-leaves-leaders-fearing-the-future-as-g-20-summit-breaks/2017/07/08/daed41be-634f-11e7-84a1-a26b75ad39fe_story.html?utm_term=.e5d465efcc75

Begin quote from news article:

HAMBURG — President Trump and other world leaders on Saturday emerged from two days of talks unable to resolve key differences on core issues such as climate change and globalization, slapping an exclamation point on a divisive summit that left other nations fearing for the future of global alliances in the Trump era.

The scale of disharmony was remarkable for the annual Group of 20 meeting of world economic powers, a venue better known for sleepy bromides about easy-to-agree-on issues. Even as negotiators made a good-faith effort to bargain toward consensus, European leaders said that a chasm has opened between the United States and the rest of the world.

End quote from news article

I am proposing a new poem, designed to teach Americans like Donald Trump that the name of the town called Hamburg in Germany should be pronounced Homborg, not like Americans pronounce the word Hamburg. A person who lives in Hamburg is a Hamburger, but the word is pronounced Homborger, not like the American word Hamberger.

Trump did not visit Holocaust Memorial, says a reporter on MSNBC

Filed under: Holocaust, Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 8:56 am

This morning, I woke up around 8 a.m. and stumbled into the living room where I turned on the TV and heard a black reporter on MSNBC say that President Trump had not visited the “Holocaust Memorial” in Poland.

There’s a “Holocaust Memorial in Poland”? Where is it?

I rushed to my computer to find out what place Trump had not visited.

Here is the first news article that I found on my computer: https://www.aol.com/article/news/2017/07/07/trump-angers-polish-jews-by-skipping-visit-to-warsaw-ghetto-memo/23020840/

I soon learned that they were talking about the place that Trump’s daughter Ivanka had visited yesterday. I blogged about her visit yesterday.

The place that Ivanka visited is not what I would call a “Holocaust Memorial”. I don’t think that it is a place that requires a visit from the President of the United States.

Should the President be impeached?

Filed under: Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: — furtherglory @ 2:26 pm

You can read a news article here about whether the President should be impeached: http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-impeachment-march-20170702-story.html

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Thousands of protesters marched down 5th Street and Broadway in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, chanting, “Down, down, down with Trump — up, up, up with the people” as they urged Congress to impeach the president.

John Meranda, 56 of Long Beach, held a sign showing Trump’s face on the body of a chubby baby, with the word “impeach” spelled out in wooden blocks.

“Every day when I wake up, something is more terrible than it was yesterday,” Meranda said. He has attended all five of the recent anti-Trump marches and plans to keep coming, he said.

He said he’s been most recently frightened by the Republican proposal to cut billions of dollars from the Medicaid program. Meranda is insured privately, he said, “but I have friends who are kept alive by it.”

Further down Broadway, Allen Levenson, 55 of Redondo Beach, and two of his friends clutched a plastic frame supporting a 15-foot-long banner reading, “Illegitimate Corrupt Puppet.”

“It cuts to the heart of his personal insecurities and fears,” said Levinson. “And we wanted something G-rated.”

Levinson has cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy, but chose to attend the march Sunday because showing his displeasure with Trump — “who aspires to be a despot” — and the Republican Congress “is that important,” he said.

The march is one of dozens planned across the country, with demonstrations in California scheduled in Fresno, Orange County, Ventura, San Diego and San Francisco.

The Los Angeles event began about noon at Pershing Square and will end at Fletcher-Bowron Square at Main and Temple streets.

Should Trump stop tweeting?

Filed under: Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 12:37 pm

You can read here about whether Trump should stop tweeting:

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/06/25/i-found-trumps-diaryhiding-in-plain-sight-215303

The following quote is from the news article, cited above:

Begin quote

Lots of people want President Donald Trump to stop tweeting. Mitch McConnell wants him to stop tweeting. Carly Fiorina wants him to stop tweeting. Lindsey Graham and Susan Collins and other Republican members of Congress and some Democrats in Congress and Jeb Bush and many of Trump’s advisers and attorneys and even some of his supporters (although not all of his supporters) want him to stop tweeting. His wife wants him to stop. A majority of business leaders want him to stop, and a majority of millennials, and a majority of voters, period. His tweeting, they all believe, is unseemly and incendiary, legally risky and chaotic, undiplomatic, demoralizing, destructive, and distracting, too—for everybody, but especially for Trump.

The people, though, who want Trump to keep tweeting are the people who rely on his words to do their jobs—reporters, biographers, political scientists and strategists, and presidential historians. They often are appalled by the content of the tweets, just plain weary like everybody else of the volume and pace of the eruptions and deeply worried about their consequences as well—but still, they say, the more Trump tweets, the better.

Holocaust survivor is comparing Trump’s mass deportation to the arrests of Jewish people by the Nazis

Holocaust survivor testifies

Begin quote from news article:

A Holocaust survivor and U.S. military veteran testified against anti-immigrant bills pending in the Michigan House of Representatives, describing a childhood lived in constant fear and comparing Trump’s mass deportation force to the arrests of Jewish people by the Nazis.

Civil rights advocate, Rene Lichtman, 79, noted his testimony fell on the anniversary of the tragic 1939 voyage of the SS St. Louis. Due to anti-Jewish hostility, the ship—carrying nearly 1,000 Jewish refugees—was turned away from Canada, Cuba, and the U.S. While a handful were able to disembark in Cuba, the rest were forced to return to Europe and an untold number died in the Holocaust.

At times holding up old black and white photos of family members, Lichtman warned legislators—and the rest of us—that he now sees “a lot of parallels” in the Trump era.

End quote

In spite of the fact that his son-in-law Jared Kushner is Jewish, Trump does not seem to have much sympathy for the Jews.

James Comey will tell the truth about Trump

Filed under: Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 1:24 pm

Trump is going down!

You can read about it in this news article: http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/31/politics/fbi-comey-testimony/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Fired FBI director James Comey plans to testify publicly in the Senate as early as next week to confirm bombshell accusations that President Donald Trump pressured him to end his investigation into a top Trump aide’s ties to Russia, a source close to the issue said Wednesday.

Final details are still being worked out and no official date for his testimony has been set. Comey is expected to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is investigating possible connections between the Trump campaign and Russia during last year’s presidential election.

“So amazing & will never forget” said Trump at Yad Vashem

Filed under: Holocaust, Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 12:58 pm
“So amazing & will never forget.”
Is this the proper thing to say when visiting a Holocaust Memorial? I don’t think so!
The following quote is from the news article:
 Begin quote

Donald Trump delivered a solemn message of remembrance and a defiant pledge of ‘Never again’ on Tuesday as he visited Israel‘s Holocaust memorial Yad Vashem – and left a handwritten message saying his visit was ‘so amazing’.

It was criticized on Twitter by people claiming it failed to show sufficient respect to the victims of the Holocaust – although his speech had been a lengthy tribute to the dead.

One Israeli journalist published a pointed comparison of the message Trump left with that written by Barack Obama when he visited Israel in 2013.

However Trump’s speech was widely praised – and the chairman of Yad Vashem said that he believed the president did not deserve criticism.

Jared Kushner reportedly pushed for the firing of FBI Director James Comey

Jared Kushner is married to Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

In a White House sullied by ties to Russia and all sorts of unsavory characters from the fringe, Kushner was set to float above, surrounding himself with fellow figures from the elite worlds of Manhattan finance and real estate and deep-sixing the harder-edged ideas of the White House’s “nationalist” wing.

End quote

The news article continues with this quote:

Begin quote

Kushner and his representatives did not respond to requests for comment about this story. But those who know him from his days as a young New York real estate magnate and newspaper publisher say that America is just getting to know the Jared Kushner they have always known, that beneath the unflappable golden exterior is someone unafraid to bungee jump or to counter-punch when he feels slighted.

“Polite elegance,” said his friend Strauss Zelnick, an entertainment mogul and founder of the private equity firm Zelnick Media Capital, when asked to describe Kushner’s modus operandi. But, Zelnick added, “He’s tough. In an exceedingly polite way, he is as tough as any one is in New York City real estate.”

Paul Ryan said this morning that 9-11 was an attack by a foreign government –who knew?

Filed under: Germany, Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 9:22 am

I was watching on TV today as Paul Ryan spoke about what is currently going on in the world today. He mentioned Donald Trump’s trip to Germany, where he was shown on TV walking with Angela Merkel.

Then Ryan mentioned that America was attacked by a foreign government on 9-11. He seems to believe that a foreign government destroyed buildings in New York City, which were owned by one man, but never struck again.  This was a one day attack. Very strange!

I have blogged until I am blue in the face about 9-11:
