Score one for me

Published on Saturday 29. July 2017

On April 3 in my blog “Surprised?,” I predicted that Reince Priebus would be the first member of the White House staff to be fired. And yesterday, it happened. I also said that this was a sign that the ship was going down. One of my next blogs will be “Score Two for Me” when the ship goes down. If there is any doubt, just listen to Trump’s new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci’s, description of Steven Bannon:“I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock.” Talk about a White House in the process of imploding! Stay tuned.

Surprised?

Published on Monday 3. April 2017

If anyone is surprised at the chaos and conflicts in Washington, you simply did not read the tea leaves. With a president who is thin-skinned, vindictive, authoritarian and detached from reality (3 million illegal votes for Hillary and wire tapping), then who’s surprised. What might be a bit more surprising is the polarization in the Republican party. What they did to the Democrats for six years, they are now doing to themselves. Can we expect four more years of gridlock? But the biggest story is yet to unfold. Will Russiagate be a replay of Watergate. When heads start rolling, and Reince Priebus’s one might be the first one (remember John Dean?) then the ship may be going down. Stay tuned.

Dictators

Published on Tuesday 7. February 2017

A typical approach for dictators is to attack and muzzle the press, attack the legal system to neutralize it and convince people that their politicians aren’t to be trusted. Then they say, “trust me, I can fix everything.” Then they do. They fix everything so it functions in their own interests, both economic and political. Sound familiar?

A Respite in Difficult Times

Published on Saturday 14. January 2017

I have been blogging a lot recently due to recent events. It can get a bit heavy so I thought maybe a respite is due. You can scroll down to “The Spirit” and other music. My latino friends say that especially the soundcloud numbers give them “feliz” and maybe they will do the same for you. My novel, “John, Waldo and Henrietta” may not have exactly the same impact, but people who have read it say that it made them think about ideas that they hadn’t considered before. Enjoy.
