Three individuals, Baxter Henderson from Melbourne Australia, Ron Jenkins who lives in San Antonio TX and myself have been friends for over 20 years. I met Baxter in Australia in 1995. Ron and Baxter were friends when Ron was General Manager for the Lottery Commission. Ron is a retired Air Force Officer. Baxter was a Manager for GTech, the company who managed the lottery and one of my consulting and training customers for many years. I established this explanation so you can understand and hopefully appreciate the following exchange between Ron and Baxter that might help you understand what is happening on several issues we are watching with a new face in the White House. I try to learn something every day. Ron’s responses provided me with new knowledge today. I hope you enjoy the exchange. C Brewer
Baxter, I have many questions for you; first:
1. How is a court in Washington State able to stop a national order and not just within its state?
Ron: It is a Federal, District Court. The rulings apply in all US federal government jurisdictions. FYI, The US judiciary is divided into 12 regional circuits and further into 94 Federal Districts, which are subordinate to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). The next court down the chain is the 9th Federal Court of Appeals and includes federal courts in the nine western US States, plus Hawaii, Alaska, Guam and the Mariana Islands. The Federal Court that the Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) was issued from was a Federal District Court (Judge Robard presiding). The US Justice Department, at the behest of President Trump, had to appeal judge Robard’s ruling to the 9th Federal Court of Appeals. BTW, ruling’s by the 9th are the most overturned court decisions in the country because it is packed with Liberal Judge Appointees who believe the US Constitution is out dated and should be more active in interpreting the law in this era.
2..(Baxter) They (the plaintiffs) are from Washington and Minnesota) said it was a civil rights issue.
(Ron): Not exactly. The TRO was issued by Judge Robard’s based upon his interpretation of the US Constitution, specifically the “establishment Clause” and the right of “due process”. The issue of “legal standing” was glossed over in his ruling.
(Baxter) How does an order which is only effective outside the USA become a civil rights issue within the USA?
(Ron): This court was chosen by the plaintiff’s because the judge is a Left leaning Liberal, activist, judge. He was sympathetic to the argument that Non-citizen’s (i.e., Green Card holder’s and Visitor’s Visa holder’s) are included in the protections and constitutional rights afforded to legal US citizens. I don’t believe that is true and will be the reason why SCOTUS will take up the case. (only about 2 % of the eight thousand plus cases annually heard by the Federal Appeals Court are accepted for hearing by SCOTUS.)
3.(Baxter) I would have thought that USA courts could only deal with issues that would affect people within the USA.
(Ron). That issue will probably be the reason that this case will be elevated to the SCOTUS ASAP. We Conservative’s believe a refugee from Syria or immigrant from Somalia, does not have the same legal rights, under the US Constitution, as a legal US citizen; the Left believes otherwise.
4.(Baxter) If this is allowed to stand is this the end of U.S. democracy?
(Ron). NO. Our three branches of government (Executive, Judicial and Legislative) are independent and have certain powers that provide the “checks and balances” that are designed to keep the country on the right path, according to the will of our Representative Republic’s electorate.
5. (Baxter) From now on what will stop any court in any State (or District), from doing what Washington has done?
6.(Baxter) Then every one of Trump’s executive orders will be denied until it goes to the Supreme Court.
(Ron). The worst case scenario would be a legal challenge to any and all Executive Orders. While that is possible, at some point, the courts will refuse to hear every case or the electorate will rebel against the “not so loyal opposition” and vote their members out of office and out of power, ala the TEA Party’s rise during the 2007 campaign.
7.(Baxter) The office of President will be effectively dead.
(Ron). Again, I hope that won’t happen, although, in recent years the President has, in some eyes, usurped more power than some believe is within his authority, based upon the limitations of his position, based upon the Constitution and it’s system of checks and balances.
8.(Baxter) All of the talking heads are only spending time on this immigration issue.
(Ron) Yep, that is their role. To me it goes much further. Regardless of the merits of the case, the Democrats could just get one of the District courts to declare an order to be illegal and the whole country will come to a stop.
(Baxter) I don’t hear any of them talking about that.
(Ron) So far, I am totally un-effected; the trains are still running, the economy is humming along and the prep school antics of the Democrat’s will ultimately fail. The current case has many options from cancelling the contentious E/O and issuing a revised version that is narrower and Specifically exempts the issue of the religion of Islam from any new Executive Order (E.O).
(Baxter) I am afraid for your country Ron.
(Ron). Things have been much worse in past eras. The Civil Rights and Viet Nam eras were more contentious, more violent and had more civil unrest. We survived and some vital lessons were learned. To wit, never compromise on your core beliefs and or give in to threats. That being said, we have numerous international as well as domestic challenges facing this Administration. Thank goodness, we have a strong and resolute leader and he has or soon will have, a senior staff of highly experienced men and women to advise and guide him down a treacherous road, despite the sniping from opponents in his party and by Democrats.
The print and all other forms of media will continue to lean Left because that is their background and training. The only exception is FOX News. Every other Television Network and News outlet is overwhelmingly Liberal and their bias is palpable in every report, every story concerning Trump or any Conservative idea. FOX News is emphasizing the decision by the three judge appellate court didn’t even comment on the statutory authority, in the US Code, that the President cited as his authority to issue the E/O in question. His two major choices are to rescind and re-issue a new E/O that is crafted in better legalese or merely let it go to the SCOTUS, after his nominee (Neil Gorsuch) is confirmed and balances out the court to a 4-1-4 position.

I hope everyone that reads this enjoys it as much as I have. As always if you disagree or wish to add or comment on this article please do it on the blog so I can hopefully respond. This provides commentary, disagreement, questions etc. This way everyone can follow the discussion. C Brewer
Watching “Left-Coast” Progressive-Liberal judges play games with the safety of our people is the craziest attempt to gain face time in my 86 years. These people are no more abreast of what our intelligence agencies know than Putin or the Mullah’s in Iran. This entire stage show is about a group of Americans who are blessed with lifetime jobs and pissed off because Trump was elected President. Just another example of how politicized our entire government has become.
We just got rid of an Attorney General that limited prosecution to white conservatives. We finally got rid of a race hating unqualified President that wanted race riots. I am sick of watching Democrats in Congress make an ass of themselves doing everything possible to stop any actions to get this new government before it gets started. If Trump is so unqualified, possessed with wealth, biased and crazy, they should just shut up and watch him self-destruct. Why hurt all Americans with stupid delaying tactics if Trump is that inept. People need jobs, jobs, jobs and more jobs Mr. Schumer, Mrs. Pelosi, Mrs. Warren, Mrs. Waters, Mrs. Feinstein, Mrs. Boxer, etc.
Now let me share the real tragedy that has created the entire brouhaha. The media, even Fox News, has overtly failed to report what really caused this politically impacted power play. Congressional Democrats used the recent approval process for our new Education Secretary and stirred up every education related agency and union for support, to keep the real reason for this covert facade hidden.
It does not take a Harvard Professor or a Genie with a magic wand to ferret out what “Left Coast” industries, teachers unions nationwide, Congress and the media are hiding from the folks. They made one mistake and then created enough uproar to hide it and so far keep it out of the news. My true American friends the reason is that our education system has been a total failure and companies like Amazon and Microsoft slipped up and admitted that they can’t operate without bringing in aliens from these seven Muslim nations. What I would like for the Democrats to explain is why they did nothing for eight years. The real failure is our education system that is so inundated with unqualified teachers, union morons and greed that we can’t provide industry with enough capable employees to function.
Just study the facts of how American students have systematically diminished in ability for the past 30 years. We no longer teach American History in most schools. A real tragedy is we no longer teach cursive writing and high school graduates do not even learn how to sign their names. This is not a nationwide failure, yet. Some States and some school districts within even failing States have excellent education programs in the math and sciences. The problem is we do not have enough quality education programs to support Americas needs.
Give the Democrats credit as they have duped the Judiciary, education leaders, state leaders to panic and join in on the onslaught of diversionary tactics to try to oust the elected President of the United States. They know if Trump proves that he can re-unite Americans and we can educate our youth and provide jobs instead of welfare to real Americans, they will lose more seats in Congress in 2018.
Real Americans are not stupid and “all lives” must matter in America. It seems impossible that one wicked war criminal like George Soros can completely control the entire Democratic Party, all of the main stream media, CNN , PBS and every liberal Federal Judge in America. When he says jump they all jump. God save us from ourselves and please give Trump a chance make America great again. C Brewer
Watching the destruction of property by anarchists these past two weeks is unbelievable in America. Lawlessness by both mobs and individuals is against the laws of this land. The recent activity in Berkeley California was especially sickening. Watch the destruction of property by a group of thugs with mask was just being observed by the police who never did anything to stop this was sickening.
Apparently the people of California have adopted the need to destroy public and private property and succeed from the United States. As one old man 86 years old I hope they are successful. They have elected a group of politicians who are as dumb as a sack of rocks.
What a pleasure it would be to watch Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein the cream of California’s dissidents have to return home to the “Land of Fruit and Nuts”. Let these Progressives go to Hollywood and sell their acts to movie makers. They have more face time on the “Leftmedia”( a new word to better describe ) ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC and PBS than all of the “true” conservatives combined. I used the word “true” as there are more Progressive RINO’s on the “Leftmedia” attacking Trump than Demoncrats on certain days. I am sick of McCain, Graham, Murkowski and Collins openly trying to split the Republicans in Congress.
When we have the supposedly Leaders in Congress openly urging these dissident idiots, most paid to destroy by Soros, to disrupt, destroy, attack and kill or maim other Americans. Folks this is “Anarchy” not freedom of speech or right to assemble it is against every law of the land and must be stopped. If the “Leftmedia” and even Fox News would refuse to report this mayhem it would be stopped immediately by law enforcement. The media and people like the ACLU have made enforcing the law more the focus of criticism than the idiots that have become anarchist. To make sure I don’t ignore the real trainers of our anarchist youth let me travel back to the 60’s and the likes of the Clinton’s during the Viet Nam war. The tenured professors in all major colleges and universities have openly created this growing army of brainwashed youth.
If the Progressives, Demoncrats, RINO’s, ACLU and the “American Anarchist Army” continue this use of mass destruction no one will ever save our Republic. The people have spoken and given Donald Trump the power to stop the race to Socialize America. Now we have several Liberal Federal Judges join the battle to support the mayhem and safety of the people by stopping every action Trump will try to do to restore safety and order. Sadly we have a Political Supreme Court sit on their robed asses and do nothing as they are deadlocked 4 to 4 and useless.
One thing Trump, Congress, the courts and the three million lobbyist have not mentioned so far is our spoiled, under-educated, brainwashed and poorly parented young who carry out the anarchism. To my knowledge only one free country in the world, Israel, has used common sense and what most of our enemies employ to eliminate this senseless and destructive violence. These countries have adjusted for the lack of parental training and the courage of their youth to ignore tenured professors. The simple solution is mandatory military service for at least six months at 18 whether they graduate from High school or drop out.
I can imagine how the ACLU, the “Leftmedia” and the Political left-leaning Federal Judges would explode should this common sense solution were proposed. I would love to see Trump sign an Executive Order for this immediately and watch the games begin.
It is sad to watch so many Americans get worked up, paid to destroy property, block traffic, and challenge law enforcement who try to do their job because Trump tries to stop the flow of eventual terrorism with a ban on certain Muslims. He will be challenged even more when he starts to send the army of illegal Hispanics who are draining our resources with free medical, free food, free housing, etc.
What really bothers this old American is that Congress, the Supreme Court, the ACLU, misguided youth, college professors and especially the “Leftmedia” and even FOX News only have consistent concerns for immigrants’ rights. None of the these misguided “Turkeys” have any concern for the millions of real American veteran who are homeless, untreated mistreated by the VA and forgotten heroes who served and fought for their right to protest.
Oops, I forgot we do have a few leaders who have been motivated to care by our new President Trump who will help the veterans get rights at least equal to illegals. That is if the Demoncrats led by Chuck Schumer will get off their asses and help.
I have one question should any other concerned American read this article. Do you agree or disagree with me? If you disagree and can write, please correct me with facts, not feelings.
C Brewer, an 86 year old veteran who cares.
Let me preface that I am not a Diplomat, Politician, elected for anything, a Progressive or a liberal Demoncrat. I am a conservative American who has lived much longer than most of you that are younger than 86. I enlisted at 17 and served in the US Navy for some five years during the Korean war. I am a retired member of Mensa and Intertel by passing exams that placed me in the 99th percentile of Intelligence Quotient. I had a successful career serving in every level of management after 27 years with Lockheed-Martin, 5 years with Halliburton and eleven years starting 8 companies. I worked in 32 countries and 49 states. I started this blog some 5 years ago and I have published over 1000 articles. I am proud of my life and I have been married to my second wife for 56 years and currently have 46 children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren counting spouses.
I did not write the above introduction to seek anything but confidence that I am not a blowhard or braggart. I write my articles to express my feelings, share my experiences, possibly encourage others to learn something each and every day. I receive no revenue for my work and encourage anyone to share my work as nothing is copyrighted.
I want to talk about Russia and the wild excitement expressed the Demoncrats and the Republicans in name only (Rino;s) like John McCain and Lindsey Graham who are as Progressive as the Clinton’s and used every underhanded way ever designed to get Hillary elected President. These people have created the poor people and have kept them poor for 50 years. They better have their seat belts fastened when Trump is sworn in this month. They have tried to destroy Israel just for the fun of it and it is about to bite them in the butt.
They have tried to antagonize Russia and Putin which is stupid in my opinion. I hope when I finish my postulations about the world’s future it will make sense to those who have closed minds. As a paper boy I watched train loads of scrap metal leave the Bethlehem Steel plant in Corsicana Texas every day in the late 1930’s destined to be shipped to Japan. Why, Japan was building up the arms necessary to plunder and kill thousands over most of SE Asia. If they had not attacked America they would have likely ruled all of that part of the world today.One of the main reasons Japan conquered more land mass was they were isolated and were populating too fast for future land needs.
Watching China building man-made islands in the international waters should at least spark an interest in why. The United States is watching and spying on this massive undertaking. The American media has shown no interest other than report that China captures one of our spying devices that was identified as a scientific probe of international waters.This is just another insurance that our media is owned by the White House now. They know they antagonized the new President and will soon have to rely on much lower level government moles to get their news. President elect Trump has found that he can communicate with average Americans and the world that elected him via social media like Twitter and Facebook. People and Nations will get the same news at the same time.
While the Demoncrats fight Trumps every move domestically for the next four years the China will have less pressure preparing for the next world conflict. The building of islands in the sea is likely a smoke screen of preparations to make the same move the Japanese did in the 1930’s, again when I was a boy. They will not be looking at overpopulated land areas like Japan, Viet Nam, Laos, Cambodia, the Philippines, India or Pakistan. They will likely avoid the Middle East unless a petroleum shortage is evident. What they will want is Malaysia and parts of Indonesia that are underpopulated and have petroleum reserves. I doubt that Mongolia or eastern Russia will be an early target as the weather at the equator is fan better than the winters in the north. This area will be secondary after they use all of the natural resources and relocate millions of Chinese immigrants to the South first.
I feel certain the views I have shared will be scoffed at by every liberal on earth as madness. I have no problems with China but their growth does not provide an easy way to control population needs like we have seen used by Mexico.They do not have the easy way to disburse their second class citizens into the United States like Mexico and the other Central American countries have enjoyed.
I will likely not live to see if I was correct. Inside me I pray the world will never see another war that took so many young American men in my lifetime. Unfortunately if natural disasters do not slow the Worlds eventual population growth it will far exceed the ability to feed everyone. I will not overlook the world wars or even smaller wars like the Korean war I was involved with or the war with Viet Nam that were concocted by the politicians who had their pockets filled by the banks. The banks have caused more conflicts and wars than the Romans did several centuries ago. Read my articles about our own Federal Reserve and the scary group that still exists called Tavistock.
Now go back to sleep and watch the Demoncrats and Rino;s wriggle, scream, riot, plunder, hug trees, block highways and ignore the next potential disaster. Hopefully see Donald Trump drain the Washington swamp, create jobs and skewer the media. He appears to see that Russia is a much better partner than China to ease world tensions. I hope he throws out the United Nations or at least stop funding it totally. Unfortunately he will probably be assassinated like Kennedy by powers that have never surfaced yet. The money was there somewhere.

I have no apologies for the length of this post so enjoy some interesting facts. My friend Jim Heck sent me the following analysis of the recent American election that was written by an Irish journalist. He has many interesting facts and perceptions of what happened that make more sense than any of the American media has reported. I found this well worth my time to read and absorb and I hope you will share it you’re your friends. C Brewer
An Irish Reflection on the 2016 Election in the Colonies
Ian O’Doherty is a columnist who works for the Irish Independent. His “iSpy” column is published Monday-Thursday. On Fridays O’Doherty publishes a rather more serious column containing his opinion on a chosen subject in “The World According to Ian O’Doherty.” He was formerly with the Evening Herald.
Tuesday November 8, 2016 — a day that will live in infamy, or the moment when America was made great again?
The truth, as ever, will lie somewhere in the middle. After all, contrary to what both his supporters and detractors believe — and this is probably the only thing they agree on — Trump won’t be able to come into office and spend his first 100 days gleefully ripping up all the bits of the Constitution he doesn’t like.
But even if this week’s seismic shockwave doesn’t signal either the sky falling in or the start of a bright new American era, the result was, to use one of The Donald’s favourite phrases, huge. It is, in fact, a total game changer.
In decades to come, historians will still bicker about the most poisonous, toxic and stupid election in living memory.
They will also be bickering over the same vexed question: how did a man who was already unpopular with the public and who boasted precisely zero political experience beat a seasoned Washington insider who was married to one extremely popular president and who had worked closely with another?
The answer, ultimately, is in the question.
History will record this as a Trump victory, which of course it is. But it was also more than that, because this was the most stunning self-inflicted defeat in the history of Western democracy.
Hillary Clinton has damned her party to irrelevance for at least the next four years. She has also ensured that Obama’s legacy will now be a footnote rather than a chapter. Because the Affordable Care Act is now doomed under a Trump presidency and that was always meant to be his gift, of sorts, to America.
How did a candidate who had virtually all of the media, all of Hollywood, every celebrity you could think of, a couple of former presidents and apparently, the hopes of an entire gender resting on her shoulders, blow up her own campaign?
I rather suspect that neither Donald nor Hillary know how they got to this point.
Where she seemed to expect the position to become available to her by right — the phrase “she deserves it” was used early in the campaign and then quickly dropped when her team remembered that Americans don’t like inherited power — his first steps into the campaign were those of someone chancing their arm. If he wasn’t such a staunch teetotaller, many observers would have accused him of only doing it as a drunken bet.
But the more the campaign wore on, something truly astonishing began to happen: the people began to speak. And they began to speak in a voice which, for the first time in years in the American heartland, would not be ignored.
Few of the people who voted for Trump seriously believe that he is going to personally improve their fortunes. Contrary to the smug, middle-class media narrative, they aren’t all barely educated idiots.
They know what he is, of course they do. It’s what he is not that appeals to them.
Clinton, on the other hand, had come to represent the apex of smug privilege. Whether it was boasting about her desire to shut down the remaining coal industry in Virginia — that worked out well for her, in the end — or calling half the electorate a “basket of deplorables,” she seemed to operate in the perfumed air of the elite, more obsessed with coddling idiots and pandering to identity and feelings than improving the hardscrabble life that is the lot of millions of Americans.
Also, nobody who voted for Trump did so because they wanted him as a spiritual guru or life coach.
But plenty of people invested an irrational amount of emotional energy into a woman who was patently undeserving of that level of adoration.
That’s why we’ve witnessed such fury from her supporters — they had wrapped themselves so tightly in the Hillary flag that a rejection of her felt like a rejection of them. And when you consider that many American colleges gave their students Wednesday off class because they were too “upset” to study, you can see that this wasn’t a battle for the White House — this became a genuine battle for America’s future direction. And, indeed, for the West. (Emphasis mine)
We have been going through a cultural paroxysm for the last 10 years — the rise of identity politics has created a Balkanised society where the content of someone’s mind is less important than their skin colour, gender, sexuality or whatever other attention-seeking label they wish to bestow upon themselves.
In fact, where once it looked like racism and sexism might be becoming archaic remnants of a darker time, a whole new generation has popped up which wants to re-litigate all those arguments all over again.
In fact, while many of us are too young to recall the Vietnam War and the social upheaval of the 1960s, plenty of observers who were say they haven’t seen an America more at war with itself than it is today.
One perfect example of this New America has been the renewed calls for segregation on campuses. Even a few years ago, such a move would have been greeted with understandable horror by civil rights activists — but this time it’s the black students demanding segregation and “safe spaces” from whites. If young people calling for racial segregation from each other isn’t the sign of a very, very sick society, nothing is.
The irony of Clinton calling Trump and his followers racist while she was courting Black Lives Matter was telling.
After all, no rational white person would defend the KKK, yet here was a white women defending both BLM and the New Black Panthers — explicitly racist organisations with the NBP, in particularly, openly espousing a race war if they don’t get what they want.
Fundamentally, Trump was attractive because he represents a repudiation of the nonsense that has been slowly strangling the West.
He represents — rightly or wrongly, and the dust has still to settle — a scorn and contempt for these new rules. He won’t be a president worried about microaggressions, or listening to the views of patently insane people just because they come from a fashionably protected group.
He also represents a glorious two fingers to everyone who has become sick of being called a racist or a bigot or a homophobe — particularly by Hillary supporters who are too dense to realise that she has always actually been more conservative on social issues than Trump.
That it might take a madman to restore some sanity to America is, I suppose, a quirk that is typical to that great nation — land of the free and home to more contradictions than anyone can imagine.
Trump’s victory also signals just how out of step the media has been with the people. Not just American media, either.
In fact, the Irish media has continued its desperate drive to make a show of itself with a seemingly endless parade of emotionally incontinent gibberish that, ironically, has increased in ferocity and hysterical spite in the last few days.
The fact that Hillary’s main cheerleaders in the Irish and UK media still haven’t realised where they went wrong is instructive and amusing in equal measure. They still don’t seem to understand that by constantly insulting his supporters, they’re just making asses of themselves.
One female contributor to this newspaper said Trump’s victory was a “sad day for women.” Well, not for the women who voted for him, it wasn’t.
But that really is the nub of the matter — the “wrong” kind of women obviously voted for Trump. The “right” kind went with Hillary. And lost.
The Irish media is not alone in being filled largely with dinner-party liberals who have never had an original or socially awkward thought in their lives. They simply assume that everyone lives in the same bubble and thinks the same thoughts — and if they don’t, they should.
Of the many things that have changed with Trump’s victory, the bubble has burst. Never in American history have the polls, the media and the chin-stroking moral arbiters of the liberal agenda been so spectacularly, wonderfully wrong.
It was exactly that condescending, obnoxious sneer towards the working class that brought them out in such numbers, and that is the great irony of Election 16 — the Left spent years creating identity politics to the extent that the only group left without protection or a celebrity sponsor was the white American male.
That it was the white American male who swung it for Trump is a timely reminder that while black lives matter, all votes count — even the ones of people you despise.
You don’t have to be a supporter of Trump to take great delight in the sheer, apoplectic rage that has greeted his victory.
If Clinton had won and Trump supporters had gone on a rampage through a dozen American cities the next night, there would have been outrage — and rightly so.
But in a morally and linguistically inverted society, the wrong-doers are portrayed as the victims. We saw that at numerous Trump rallies: protesters would disrupt the event, claiming their right to free speech (a heckler’s veto is not free speech) and provoking people until they got a dig before running to the media and claiming victimhood.
But, ultimately, this election was about people saying enough with the bullshit. This is a country in crisis, and most Americans don’t care about transgender bathrooms, or safe spaces, or government speech laws. This was about people taking some control back for themselves.
It was about them saying that they won’t be hectored and bullied by the toddler tantrums thrown by pissy and spoiled millennials, and they certainly won’t put up with being told they’re stupid and wicked just because they have a difference of opinion.
But, really, this election is about hope for a better America; an America which isn’t obsessed with identity and perceived “privilege;” an America where being a victim isn’t a virtue and where you don’t have to apologise for not being up to date with the latest list of socially acceptable phrases.
Trump’s victory was a two fingers to the politically correct.
It was a brutal rejection of the nonsense narrative which says Muslims who kill Americans are somehow victims. It took the ludicrous Green agenda and threw it out. It was a return, on some level, to a time when people weren’t afraid to speak their own mind without some self-elected language cop shouting at you. Who knows, we may even see Trump kicking the UN out of New York.
Frankly, if you’re one of those who gets their politics from Jon Stewart and Twitter, look away for the next four years, because you’re not going to like what you see. The rest of us, however, will be delighted.
This might go terribly, terribly wrong. Nobody knows — and if we have learned anything this week, it’s that nobody knows nuthin’.
But just as the people of the UK took control back with Brexit, the people of America did likewise with their choice for president.
Thanks Jim for sharing such a refreshing look at how the foreign media hit the nail on the head. Americans were finally fed-up with Politics replacing the Law. My prayers are with Donald Trump to re-unite Americans and get the country on a new track. Personally I wish he would boot out the United Nations who have always been divided, biased, wasteful and totally ineffective. What they recently did to Israel, at Obama’s desire, is a perfect example of using insanity to incite another war on purpose to finish what Hitler started when I was a boy.
