Is Donald Trump insane?

One of the regular readers of my blog asked me to explain why I believe that Donald Trump is insane. I am not the only one who says that he is insane.

Donald Trump came up with the phrase “Prime the pump” a few days ago

Filed under: Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 9:01 am

Yes, it’s true. Donald Trump just came up with the phrase “prime the pump” only a few days ago.

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full at https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/politics/wp/2017/05/11/trump-says-he-invented-an-84-year-old-phrase-but-why/?utm_term=.e9ea09cc245d

Begin quote

TRUMP: It is okay, because it won’t increase it for long. You may have two years where you’ll … you understand the expression “prime the pump”?

ECONOMIST: Yes.

TRUMP: We have to prime the pump.

ECONOMIST: It’s very Keynesian.

TRUMP: We’re the highest-taxed nation in the world. Have you heard that expression before, for this particular type of an event?

ECONOMIST: Priming the pump?

TRUMP: Yeah, have you heard it?

ECONOMIST: Yes.

TRUMP: Have you heard that expression used before? Because I haven’t heard it. I mean, I just … I came up with it a couple of days ago and I thought it was good. It’s what you have to do.

End quote

That’s nothing! I came up with the phrase “bat-crap crazy” just a couple of days ago. I coined that phrase to describe Trump.

Trump pledges his support of the Jews

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 5:51 pm

The following quote is from this news article: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/04/26/trump-denounces-dangerous-anti-semitism-in-holocaust-remembrance-day-remarks.html

Begin quote

In his strongest remarks to date repudiating anti-Semitism and denouncing Holocaust deniers, President Trump on Tuesday marked Holocaust Remembrance Day by pledging – with survivors of the Nazi-led genocide looking on – that the United States would “always stand with the Jewish people.”

Trump spoke at a ceremony [today] hosted by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum [in Washington, DC] to mark the unveiling of a new conservation and research center. The center will serve as a repository for a vast collection of artifacts by those who survived Adolf Hitler’s massacre of Jews during World War II.

Members of Congress and Holocaust survivors — whose strength and courage Trump said was an inspiration — attended the emotional event in the Rotunda, the center of the Capitol. Survivors lit candles at the end of the ceremony.

Trump said Holocaust denial is one form of “dangerous anti-Semitism that continues all around the world” and that can be seen on university campuses, in attacks on Jewish communities “or when aggressors threaten Israel with total and complete destruction.”

“This is my pledge to you: We will confront anti-Semitism,” he said. “We will stamp out prejudice, we will condemn hatred, we will bear witness and we will act. As president of the United States, I will always stand with the Jewish people and I will always stand with our great friend and partner, the state of Israel.”

End quote

Trump did not use the word Nazi in his speech, since he does not know how to pronounce this word.

The Donald gives a speech and mispronounces nearly every word

In the past, I have written several blog posts about Donald Trump including this one which you can read at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2016/07/25/is-donald-trump-the-new-hitler/

This morning, I listened to President Trump give a speech, and I was shocked to hear him mispronounce so many well-known words, regarding the Holocaust.

For example, Trump mispronounced the word Nazi. He said Nozzy instead of Not-see.

Then he mispronounced the name of the most famous person who ever claimed to be a Holocaust survivor, but wasn’t: Elie Wiesel.

Just before he died, Wiesel confessed that he was never in a concentration camp. He was probably hiding out in his childhood home in Hungary, which I wrote about in this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2016/07/05/the-childhood-home-of-elie-the-wiesel/

Trump mispronounced Wiesel’s first name as Elly, instead of E-lee.  The way that Trump pronounced “Elly”, it rhymed with Smelly and Jelly.   He mispronounced the word Wiesel as Weasel, instead of Vee-zel.

Near the end of his speech, President Trump told the story of Gerda Klein who claimed that she had been held by the Nazis in a prison in Poland for 3 years. Trump did not give the name of the prison, so that we could look it up.

Gerda claimed that she was liberated from Dachau by American soldiers. That day was Gerda’s 21st birthday and she weighed 68 pounds, according to the story told by Trump.

I have written extensively on my scrapbookpages.com website about the liberation of the Dachau camp: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauLiberation/LiberationDay4.html

I wrote my website many years ago — in 1998, and at that time, I had never heard the story of Gerda Klein.  So I do not believe her story. Trump should have given some proof of this story.

It is strange that I never heard about Gerda Wiessmann when I was studying the liberation of Dachau.

I blogged about Gerda before on the link below.

Should American bombers have punished the Nazi soldiers for operating gas chambers at Auschwitz?

Filed under: Germany, Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 7:53 am

Don’t worry if you can’t understand the title of my blog post. I can’t understand it myself.

The quote in the title of my blog post comes from a news article, which claims that Trump has taken away American’s shame for inaction against the Germans who gassed the Jews.

http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/international-affairs/327809-trumps-response-to-syrian-bloodshed-lifts-the-stain

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that the Germans who gassed the Jews are all dead now. It is too late to take action against them.

The following quote is from the news article:

Trump’s response to Syrian bloodshed lifts the stain of American inaction

Begin quote

America needs unity. And if we can’t unite around the United States finally taking action after Arab children are gassed, then nothing will bring us together.

For those who waited four long years to see the United States reclaim its moral mantle as leader of the free world and protector of human rights, the news that President Trump struck at the Syrian tyrant Assad is electrifying. I am well aware that many in America object to Donald Trump. But is there a higher calling for a president than to stop mass murder, and should we not salute bold leadership when it sends a message that genocide will not be tolerated?

End quote

In other words, if Trump had been America’s president during World War II, he would have bombed the alleged gas chamber at Auschwitz — and killed everyone in the camp.

The gas chamber in the Auschwitz main camp was across the street from a hospital where wounded German soldiers were being treated.

The photo above shows the SS hospital which was across the street from the alleged gas chamber.

My early morning photo of the hospital for wounded German soldiers that was across the street from the Auschwitz gas chamber

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think that it would have been a war crime to have killed wounded enemy soldiers in a hospital.

The news article continues with this quote;

Begin quote

Just think for a moment how the Jews of the concentration camps of Europe would have felt had they seen American bombers punishing the Nazi soldiers for operating gas chambers at Auschwitz. Sadly, those bombers never came, and still today historians debate how a moral man like Franklin Roosevelt could have stayed his hand against Hitler’s machinery of death.

Donald Trump and “The picture of Dorian Gray”

Filed under: Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 10:25 am

You can read about “The picture of Dorian Gray” on Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Picture_of_Dorian_Gray

Recent photos of Donald Trump

C7DutVFWcAAK0sV.jpeg

Has anyone noticed that photos of Donald Trump are beginning to look like the pictures of Dorian Gray, who was a character in an 1890 novel?

In the story of the novel, Dorian remains young and handsome as he gets older, but his picture in a painting gets more and more ugly. The painting ages, but Dorian doesn’t.

When the most recent Presidential campaign started, the first words out of The Donald’s mouth, as the candidates walked on stage, were “look at that face” referring to a female candidate, Carly Fiorina.  Now, I am saying “look at that face” referring to Trump. His photos have become more and more ugly. I have not seen him in real life, so I don’t know if he is really as ugly as his recent photos.

Will Trump cause the Chinese president to “lose face”?

Filed under: Health, Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 12:08 pm

“Look at that face” as The Donald would say.

According to this news story, Donald Trump is planning to meet with the president of China.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/13/politics/donald-trump-xi-jinping-summit-mar-a-lago/

I think that Trump should bone up on Chinese manners, as fast as he can. He should learn what “losing face” means in Chinese culture. I am familiar with this Chinese expression because I have a Chinese doctor. I used to take acupuncture treatments. Acupuncture cures everything. But the last time that I visited my Chinese doctor, he put small black stones in a line down my back, as is shown in a Geico  commercial. He said that I was too old for acupuncture which would be too strong for me.

Read this to learn what “losing face” means: https://www.yoyochinese.com/blog/What-Does-Losing-Face-Mean-Importance-Face-Chinese-Culture

I predict that the Chinese President will bring his own food and his own cook. Trump will be serving steak and potatoes, but the Chinese don’t eat this type of diet.

The Chinese believe that potatoes are poison and that meat should be eaten in very small amounts. The Chinese think that half of your food should be rice and that the other half should be divided between meat or fish and Chinese vegetables.

Republicans blocked a resolution which declared that Jews were the primary victims of the Holocaust

Filed under: Holocaust, Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 10:04 am

I am blogging today about a news article which you can read in full at http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2017/02/07/republicans_block_vote_on_resolution_stating_that_holocaust_targeted_jews.html

This is the headline of the article:

House Republicans Avoid Voting on a Resolution Stating That the Holocaust Targeted Jews

The following quote is from the news article:;

Begin quote

The resolution, a shrewd effort to pin Republicans down on something the Trump administration has needlessly made an issue, condemned the White House’s Holocaust Remembrance Day statement, which failed to mention Jews or the anti-Semitism that led to Adolf Hitler’s genocide against them. It also called for the House to reiterate “the indisputable fact that the Nazi regime targeted the Jewish people in its perpetration of the Holocaust,” condemn Holocaust denialism, and demand acknowledgment from the White House that Jews were targeted.

In the wake of controversy over the Holocaust Remembrance Day statement, the White House defended it, saying that it had wished to be inclusive by acknowledging that other groups had been killed by Hitler’s regime as well.

End quote

The problem is that President Donald Trump has not bowed low enough to the Jews, in spite of the fact that his daughter Ivanka and his son-in-law Jared Kushner are both Jewish.

The victims of the Holocaust included many categories of people besides Jews. However, the non-Jews that were killed are not important. Only the Jews count, and Trump seems to ignore this. What is WRONG with him?

Tips for visitors to the US Holocaust Museum

Filed under: Holocaust, Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 11:46 am

I have just read a news article, which states that Ivanka Trump, the daughter of President Donald Trump, recently visited the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. I wish that I had known about this visit in advance — I could have given Ivanka some tips on what to look for.

Three years ago, I wrote a blog post about what to look for when you visit this museum, which is at the end of the Capital Mall, very close to the White House.

https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/us-holocaust-memorial-museum/

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

Begin quote

First daughter Ivanka Trump toured the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington and her father [Donald Trump] may soon do so as well, Bloomberg reported Friday.

The tour was private, and Trump was joined by her husband’s parents Charles and Seryl Kushner, who are Orthodox Jews. Her husband and senior adviser to President Trump Jared Kushner’s grandmother was a Holocaust survivor who helped found the museum. [this is news to me]

Ivanka Trump converted to Judaism before marrying Kushner in 2009.

End quote

O.K. here is my advice to The Donald. If you tour the Museum, keep saying to yourself “Don’t laugh! Don’t laugh.” The Holocaust Museum is so full of errors that it is hard to keep from laughing.

If you do find yourself laughing, you should quickly turn it into  a cough. I have been to many Holocaust sites, and I’ve never been arrested. I have always avoided going with a tour group, for fear that I would burst out laughing at the ridiculous stories that are told.

If Jeff Sessions is the new Hitler, who is the new Hess?

Filed under: Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 10:27 am

Nurnberg26.jpeg

Although many travel guidebooks say that the Zeppelin field was first used in 1927 for a Nazi party rally, the picture above clearly shows that it was held in the city of Nürnberg that year. In this photo, taken during the August 19-20, 1927 rally, Georg Halberman and Pfeffer von Salomon stand in the front, wearing Bavarian lederhosen (leather shorts) and knee socks as part of their uniform while Hitler and his right-hand man, Rudolph Hess, who is smiling in the background, salute the parade of Sturmabteilung (SA) troops from the back seat of a convertible.

You can read about Jess Sessions in a recent news article at http://lawnewz.com/high-profile/sorry-but-jeff-sessions-absolutely-did-not-perjure-himself-under-oath-when-asked-about-russia/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Supporters and critics of Jeff Sessions agree, mostly, on one thing: The longtime U.S. senator from Mobile is a nice, down-to-earth Southerner whom lawmakers often enjoyed chatting up or sharing time with in the gym.

But that’s where the niceties end. When it came time to confirm Sessions as the 84th attorney general, Democrats collaborated and vocalized their dissent. In the process, they blasted Sessions as anti-immigrant, a racist and someone who will oversee the Justice Department as a “rubber stamp” for President Donald Trump.

Only one of the 46 Democrats in the U.S. Senate voted to confirm Sessions as attorney general, despite the Alabama conservative’s 21-year tenure in the same body.

The vote also bucked early projections that Sessions, because of his familiarity among his Senate colleagues, might enjoy more Democratic support.

End quote from news article

I learned about Jess Sessions, for the first time, on the TV news last night. People are saying that Jess Sessions is the “new Hitler.”

Hitler’s closest friend, from his earliest days, was Rudolf Hess. Jess Sessions is apparently a close friend of Donald Trump.

Everyone in the civilized world knows the name Hitler, but who was Rudolf Hess?

I wrote about Hess on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/07/31/rudolf-hess-flew-on-a-peace-mission-but-was-convicted-of-crimes-against-peace-at-nuremberg/

After Hess flew to England and bailed out of his plane by turning the plane upside down and falling out, he was arrested, put into prison, and was never allowed to speak to anyone, except his son, ever again. There were rumors that Hess had flown to England to try to prevent a new war. Allegedly, the English wanted war.

Now, some people fear that Donald Trump will start a new war. Who will be the Rudolf Hess character in this saga? Who will try to stop the war?
