2017 Year End Summary

Wow, where to start?

Nikki Haley's undiplomatic threats against other nations that if they exercise their sovereign right to vote against Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, which actually opposes US policy for the past 50 years, signed Israeli agreements and international law, that they will be punished? I guess we could start there.

Or we could begin the discussion about Nikki Haley's ignorance, pure and simple, on the history of Israel/Palestine, or how Nikki Haley has spent more time criticizing the UN because of its perceived anti-Israel bias instead of actually pushing forward US interests, which I think is what she was selected to do ...

Or we could start at "Russia Collusion" which after Flynn started cooperating with Mueller, turned out to be Kushner-directed and Trump sanctioned "Israeli Collusion" beckoned by Netanyahu to try and use Russian veto power in the UNSC to scuttle Obama's last directive, for the US to abstain from the UNSC resolution concerning the illegality of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. This is a clear violation of the Logan Act, and pretty illuminating since "America First" and "Make America Great Again" very quickly morphed into "Protect Israel's Lawlessness at any Cost".

When Sheldon Adelson's Las Vegas newspaper became the first rag to officially endorse Trump in 2016, I knew that this con-man had been bought and compromised. When Trump appointed Friedman, who actually raised money for illegal West Bank settlements and said that J-street Jews were "worse than kapos", to the highest diplomatic post between US and Israel, I knew this total sellout by Trump was going to rear its ugly head eventually. And the same commentary applies to Greenblatt. Yeah, why not have a Zionist son-in-law and two uber-Zionists running your Middle East Israeli-Palestinian policy? What could possibly go wrong with that?

And then again, we could talk about Trump, good Lord, can we talk about this man .... Firing Comey, Bannon, Spicer, thwarting Tillerson, not leading after Charlottesville, tweeting his bully routines against anybody that opposes his nonsense, Roy Moore, more tweet fights against Warren and Gillibrand, making America look silly abroad by kissing ass in Saudi Arabia, denying claims of sexual assaults, making up facts, twisting history, and basically mangling the presidency. I think the word mangle is the only one that aptly describes what he has done. The most substantive thing he has done is give tax breaks to the super wealthy while driving up the national deficit and the debt after that, because you cannot do one without the other. His next biggest achievement is exposing that the the US is a total and complete whore to Israel and AIPAC and the powerful Jewish interests in the US. Impeachment does not do any justice to what needs to happen to this clown and his deluded policies ; he wants to pick a fight with : Iran, North Korea, China, Russia, and maybe all at the same time. He wants Mexico to pay for a border wall, while telling everyone else if they don't do what the US wants them to do, they will get sanctioned or bombed. We have supplied the weapons with which Saudi Arabia is conducting its amoral assault against Yemen, we have attacked Syrian troops while they were engaged in fighting against ISIS, given weapons to al-Nusra which fell into ISIS hands, and through it all, Trump has had battles with Democrats and Republicans alike, anybody that dares question his idiotic notions and infantile worldview and disposition.

2017 is, without a doubt, the lowest point in US history. If we have another year in 2018 like this last one, the republic will be dead or ready for the next revolution, which I would welcome.
