TRUMP: AN UNCONVENTIONAL FIGHTING PRESIDENT!!!

In this July 17, 2019, photo, President Donald Trump arrives to speak at a campaign rally at Williams Arena in Greenville, N.C. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)

Unconventional describes Trump from the beginning. Trump is a real estate tycoon with TV celebrity status but no official political experience in running for or serving in local or state government. With his celebrity status, charismatic personality, demeanor, organizational skill, oratory skill, and personal wealth he miraculously managed to win an election and became president of the United States against all odds.

He fought the Republican establishment and won, fought the Democratic establishment and won, and now is in a battle with the establishment media and Democrats and hopes to win again in 2020.

Since almost his first day in office as president, the media along with the Democrats have tried to remove him from office and he fought back for about 2 and a half years and escaped prosecution for alleged collusion with Russia. Some of his associates like Manafort wound up in jail for illegal behavior having nothing to do with Trump personally.

Trump has been accused of many illegalities such as using campaign funds to pay off women who claimed to have had sexual relations with him, accused of allegedly extorting dirt on Biden by withholding military aid to Ukraine, obstructing justice, lying thousands of times to the public, using the presidency to enrich his personal wealth and status, and generally doing many things which are allegedly illegal and unbecoming of a president. So far, no illegalities have been proven to be serious crimes and misdemeanors with actual irrefutable evidence.

Now Trump is fighting against a frame up by an unknown whistleblower with political bias and an impeachment inquiry process heavily Democratically biased. There are serious constitutional questions being raised about the functioning of and the powers of the Executive branch versus the House of Representatives
Democrat majority during an attempted impeachment process. The constitution unfortunately doesn’t have answers to an impeachment process and there is a dearth of legal precedent to consult in how to proceed with impeachment.

How do you make the impeachment process fair to both the Executive and Legislative branch? The constitution has no firm answers so everyone, especially political pundits, are pontificating on the impeachment process by impulse not with any actual real knowledge.

Trump’s leadership style is authoritarian and he expects loyalty from his subordinates. His one weakness is that he is not very good at listening to top advisers, questioning them, reaching a consensus, and then organizing follow through with the Congress. He doesn’t always seem to trust the advice of his advisors and is especially wary of the deep state leadership and bureaucratic leadership, especially those appointed during the Obama era. Just like during his TV show, the Apprentice, he has fired or relieved many in leadership positions and has tried to install some with hopefully some loyalty to him.

Trump’s unorthodox leadership style in the presidency has made him unpopular with the establishment and the absence of civility in his rhetoric has infiltrated the media as it becomes more tabloid in style with its own dose of deceptions, fake news, severe criticism, insults, name calling, put downs, ridicule, and humiliation. As a result of this no holds bared battle with Trump the public at large no longer knows what to believe and is largely tuning off to political concerns. If you can’t trust the president or the media or the Democrats and many Republicans then who can you trust?

Trump continues to fight against the establishment by trying to secure borders, trying to withdraw military forces from abroad such as from Syria and Afghanistan, trying to create friendly relationships with Russia and North Korea, imposing tariffs and trying to cure a massive trade imbalance with nations such as China, trying to get nuclear and military behavioral concessions from Iran, trying to get other nations to pay more for United States military presence abroad, cutting corporate taxes and trying to get companies to invest more in the United States, and generally trying to regain what greatness the United States had historically.

There is no doubt that Trump is an unconventional maverick who is not going to change much while in the presidential office. Being very different is something the status quo establishment isn’t very fond of. Judging by the disarray in the Democratic candidates for president, it seems on the surface that Trump has succeeded in almost destroying the Democratic leadership single handedly.

The internet has atomized society and also the leadership of both political parties. A recurrence of the Trump celebrity phenomenon is no longer possible after the demise of establishment MASS media who historically used to play a major role in presidential success. Without a mass media whom most of the population listens to, it is virtually impossible for a relatively obscure politician to reach national prominence in the eyes of the public. Whether this media failure in propaganda control over the public is a good or bad thing is debatable but one thing is sure. Overwhelming national public consensus on one political leader is becoming almost mission impossible and that is the state of the presidency today.

How this presidential battle will end and when is a debatable question as Trump continues to wage war in his unconventional style, making politics very unconventional too in the process. Whether the Trump phenomenon is a good or bad thing in the long duration is debatable but one thing is sure. Politics will probably never be the same again.

SMART THINGS TO BE FOR AND AGAINST FOR ANY POLITICAL PARTY THAT WANTS TO BE RESPECTED AND NOT HATED FOR IDEOLOGICAL STUPIDITY!!!

I have compiled a list of what I think is a sane rational political view which will benefit most in a nation and world and is the best governing system which you can realistically hope for.

FOR:

Guns for all law abiding citizens without felony records or convictions.

Capitalism for the employed and socialism for the destitute and also unemployed.

Constitutionalism subject to structural amendments such as eliminating state bureaucracies and only having the House of Representatives with additional local rights currently reserved for the states.

Environmentalism but no climate change laws since the change is solar caused and not human caused.

The right to choose especially in financial and health emergencies. An unwanted child is not something which should be forced on anyone.

Gay rights but no special treatment of transgender oddballs. Heterosexual, moral, financially responsible childless families should be given preference in all adoptions.

A secular moral code taught to all impressionable young minds in elementary public schools.

War to defend allies if attacked and war in self defense.

Censorship of immoral and criminal behavior.

Closed borders with relatively liberal legal immigration to fill job demands, especially in specialized and high technology fields.

Freedom for organized religion as long as it is not Sharia law which runs counter to the constitution, especially bad if the religion tries to enforce oppressive patriarchal rules.

Relatively small efficient government.

Enforcement of drug laws which will minimize the harm to children from mind altering legal and illegal adult drug use.

Social security for retired citizens and those with severe disabilities or handicaps.

Strategic free trade so that a nation does not become vulnerable to cyber or military warfare or blackmail.

Efficient robotization of work where possible.

Conservation and expansion of wilderness with wildlife.

 

AGAINST:

Communism or Government tyranny.

Special interest laws or loopholes, especially for big money individuals, big corporations, and big organizations.

Progressive taxes that are not a uniform fixed percentage for all.

Taxation of organic farming and sustainable non polluting businesses both of which should be untaxed.

Inheritance tax.

The death penalty.

Gender discrimination in general unless it is very demanding physical strength ability or extreme athletic physical ability mostly reserved for males.

 

I have mainly stated generalities. If you are interested in details or specifics on any topic then search my encyclopedic blog at uldissprogis.com or read my books on Amazon, many of which are free with prime membership. Happy hunting. Enjoy!

BIG MONEY, ECONOMICS, THE INTERNET, AND IDEOLOGY!!!

Big money is increasingly ruling the world internationally with international banks,  international corporations, and international internet or communications beginning to have more impact on the lives of humans than any one country or national organization. In almost every country this globalized money supply is impacting the political leadership of almost every country and a global ideology is beginning to form which is much more collective and tyrannical in nature.  Individual rights are being assaulted with more of an emphasis on group rights and group think or group ideology.  Putting it another way it is collective rights and collective thinking or collective ideology which is becoming more dominant.

Ironically in its beginning the internet held a promise of individual freedom of expression and individual creativity. With time, money and information power became concentrated in search engines, social media, cellphone companies, and internet commerce all of which now dominate the internet with relatively few corporations being major players and all being able to crush or buy up competitors to increase their profit margin which favors established monied companies which includes monied media companies. Discrimination based on money is rampant but more sinister is the ability to promote collective left wing ideology and censor right wing ideology which still promotes individual rights. It is beginning to look like the tyranny of big money power is being fused with the tyranny of thought control or censorship of politically incorrect thought which champions individual rights and moral or ethical individual free speech.

Economics is now largely a global phenomenon with international trade promoting the rich in every country and more power in the hands of the globally rich. Technology is also increasing the concentration of this money in the hands of the rich nationals and rich internationals but this would not be all bad if it weren’t for the fact that most of the rich have a tyrannical collectivist ideology which threatens to make most individuals little more than impoverished humans living on welfare or working for a pittance often not enough to support a family. This may be an effective form of population control but living an impoverished life seldom helps the culture of a nation to thrive.

Conclusion:

Money power is being concentrated in fewer and fewer hands worldwide, the individual is increasingly being oppressed financially and ideologically, and it becomes harder for one to climb the economic and social status ladder, especially if you start out at the poverty level. For all the members of the technologically educated and elite the future is bright but most jobs will be replaced by computer software and robots. A political and ideological revolution will be necessary to fit the new economic realities where most will not be technologically educated nor smart and ambitious enough so they will largely become dependent on some form of permanent government welfare.

THE UNITED STATES MAY SOON BECOME A RICH CORRUPT ELITE AT THE TOP AND MOST AT THE FLAWED MORAL AND FINANCIAL BOTTOM!!!

Before I descend into a relatively pessimistic future outlook I want to point out the optimistic developments in the United States at the present time. The housing market is relatively stable if you don’t include a shortage of rental apartments at a reasonable rental rate. Car ownership is high and many can still afford the transportation even though the costs of maintaining cars are taking up a larger and larger percentage of earned income. The airlines and travel business seems to be doing fine.

Theft is not getting out of hand due to surveillance cameras almost everywhere and there is relatively successful law enforcement even though the incarceration rate is relatively high. There are affordable electronic security devices for those who have valuable things which can be readily stolen. Most humans who want social contact and readily available information can access the worldwide web with their computers or cellphones that don’t bust their budget.

Economic hard times are bringing humans together into smaller living quarters out of necessity and more humans are once again learning to live together under more stressful thrifty circumstances. The opportunities to improve oneself through selfeducation are available on the internet for all those courageous and determined individuals who want to make something more of themselves. Opportunity is not dead even though the traditional educational system is a colossal failure job wise and is morally corrupt with a leftist dogmatic ideology, especially in academia, dominating to the point where dissent and opposing views are being overtly suppressed.

Now we will delve into all the minuses of what’s left of the traditional culture and then end with an attempt at proposing measures which may improve things if courageously implemented from the top down by moral leadership.

Moral decay is what the major problem is with fewer and fewer examples of good role models with integrity to be found in leadership positions. It is sad to see too many celebrities with drug abuse problems, promiscuity, profanity, left wing dogmatic ideology, and bad marital relationships being paraded for all to see in the media. Historically the media has been and is being the source of moral decay with its portrayal of drug use, gambling, promiscuity, profanity, violence, and dysfunctional family life all overly dramatized to merely shock and entertain the viewing audience. The real problem with the media and entertainment industry is that it has replaced a tolerance for deviant behavior with a glorification of deviant behavior which has further led to a destruction of financially responsible moral family units and values.

With a celebrity president much rational objective discourse has been abandoned in favor of a tabloid press which sensationalizes most news events and even manufactures news events which has just added to the problem of fake news, fake information, and fake reviews. Trust in the media and in the leadership is at an all time low. Knowing what is true and what is not becomes ever harder to determine.

Many good reputations are being destroyed almost overnight and once destroyed it is almost impossible to regain that reputation back again. Trust in celebrities, academia, politicians, the media, and other leadership positions has been ruined and once trust is broken it can take a whole generation of moral behavior to regain that trust again. Chaotic or bad leadership is the result of moral decay, especially when globalist money is in charge of the media and economy with a left leaning dogmatic propagandized ideology which obliterates rational objective truth and tries to brainwash the world into politically correct subservience.

With the exception of the technological financially well off elite, the rest of the population becomes and remains more ignorant than ever. Computer software and artificial intelligence can play better chess and better poker than human players as it also begins to replace human jobs by the bucketful even in the traditional professional areas long thought to be safe from robotization.

Yes, soon we should have smarter robot parents, robot teachers, robot doctors, etc. who will be examples of moral integrity with the potential to be respected and admired. Putting robots in charge of raising a new generation of moral offspring is the ultimate solution to an army of dysfunctional parent role models which are so numerous in the United States and the world in general.

So there is hope in the future for humanity once it is aided and largely replaced by smart moral robots and computer software. Who will program and supervise the smart robots? The technological elite may prevail and unfortunately they are going to be almost the only remaining top down source of excellence and moral leadership. Yes, things should get better but it will be a rather long time coming and hopefully the constitution will not be bastardized and warped by an overly zealous left wing ideological judiciary during that duration.

If you are largely ignorant of technology with a poverty paycheck or on welfare then you unfortunately will just become a citizen of a nation largely populated by mostly sheepish humans ruled by corrupt politicians or a smart moral or immoral technological elite. Which alternative is chosen should be up to voting citizens but judging by historical precedent the rule will probably be with the money and left wing tyrannical ideology of the corrupt globalists.

I have tried to aid in this moral renaissance by proposing a secular moral code for the world to teach to all impressionable young minds in detail with abundant examples so that almost every 13 year old will know what is right and wrong when it comes to interacting with other humans. The secular moral code is- in non emergency situations- don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder. Details of this secular moral code are available in my Amazon book SECULAR MORAL CODE and you can search my website with keywords for more details. Happy hunting. Enjoy!

POLITICS OR THE THEATER OF THE ABSURD!!!

Politics has always been boring for me and I am almost sorry that I tuned in to it on an almost daily basis after the miraculous election of Trump. I never have liked politicians since I always knew that they sold their souls to the highest bidder. Up until the Trump presidency there was at least a semblance of some order on a daily basis and I just viewed politics as a rather mundane excursion into dysfunctional government.

With the election of Trump politics has been turned into a theater of the absurd. Absurd to spend over 2 years and about 35 million to prove there was no collusion or treason with Russia and absurd to continue the drama with subpoenas of individuals and subpoenas for information without probable cause of any stated criminal activity. This is just tantamount to a never ending harassing fishing expedition. A congressional oversight committee has been turned into a harassment committee delusionally hoping to uncover high crimes and misdemeanors but not having the slightest clue which high crimes they are talking about.

Yes, Trump is an embarrassing amateur politician with good intentions but relative incompetence when it comes to substantive follow through on the good intentions. But is that any reason to vehemently oppose anything that he says or tries to do just because you basically hate his guts?  He does have the guts of a fighter even though you can sometimes say that he doesn’t fight fair and can throw around political mud with the best of them!

The almost 20 Democratic candidates for president are also mostly absurd 3 old farts and the rest relative newbies with minimal executive experience. All of the candidates are cannibalizing each other and no one really has that much charisma. I am so disappointed that I am tempted to turn off the theater of the absurd and only return back on about election day in 2020.

Will any progress be made in the next year and a half? I sincerely doubt it and it will probably be the same old BS up until election day.

THE POLITICAL CIRCUS IS JUST ANOTHER SYMPTOM OF MORAL DECAY!!!

So what has the United States to look forward to? I think it is a further decline into chaos resulting from moral decay which will only end in some form of ideological and actual tyranny to restore some semblance of order in society.

A democratic republic is not dead yet but polarization and an inability for Congress to reach consensus on many important issues has deadlocked the government into inaction. Executive actions to try and do something reasonable is being hampered in the courts and points to a stalemate or an inability to get things done such as the border crisis of illegal immigrants into the country.

Trumps amateur mercurial authoritarian style of leadership is not working very well in practice and there even is no consensus within the Democratic or the Republican parties themselves. Wherever you look there are serious problems.

A growing deficit, increasing healthcare costs, jobs lost to automation, a growing welfare class which includes many illegal immigrants, family breakdown, unfavorable trade balances, a dysfunctional educational system not adequately training for technological jobs, educational loan debt, and crumbling infrastructure all need more money to keep going and tax revenue is just not increasing.

More free health care, free education, and a guaranteed basic national income are the only new solutions which are being offered which all cost more money and really mean higher taxes. The quality of health care, the quality of education, and the quality of the workforce is lousy and no amount of money thrown at the problems will solve the poor health, bad education, and lazy ignorant workforce.

Yes, eating organic food with less sugar and toxic chemicals added could improve the health of pill popping Americans in the long duration. More technological education and getting teenagers to start working in their teens to develop a work ethic is a possible long duration solution but no one is proposing legal and financial incentives to bring about this desperately needed change. Throw more money at a problem which needs a solution first is no way to improve a bad situation which will only get worse with time. It seems the smart humans with real solutions and integrity are out to lunch and the lousy status quo reigns supreme.

Moral decay has resulted in much less trust in government, in politicians, in celebrities, the media, in the leadership of the deep state, and in the court system which includes the constitution. A sensationalist tabloid media and an ignorant amateur politician president have created a circus like atmosphere where it seems any crazy or deviant ideas and actions are televised for all to see.

Human reputations are destroyed at will with insults, put downs, name calling, ridicule, and humiliation. There seems to be no one in leadership positions with integrity intact but almost all have been mercilessly assaulted with slanderous and even libelous remarks which are grievances not redressed because it is the public domain where deceptions and lies are flourishing without prosecution.

Politics without a secular moral code to guide it is a circus of immorality which can only end in some form of tyranny to restore some semblance of order out of the chaos. A common consensus on moral principles is necessary for a nation to thrive. Without that moral consensus a well ordered peaceful society degenerates into immoral chaos.

Yes, it is time to include a secular moral code into the constitution and indoctrinate all impressionable young minds with it so that teenagers impulsively know what is right or wrong, moral or immoral. Eventually those moral teenagers will grow up to be politicians and leaders with integrity which is what our current crop of politicians and many leaders severely lack.

What is a secular moral code which every human with integrity can agree on almost anywhere in the world?

In non emergency situations-don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder. If you want the details then read my book Secular Moral Code on Amazon.

TRUMP: AN AMATEUR POLITICIAN FIGHTING THE RULING CLASS!!!

It is somewhat of a miracle that a celebrity real estate tycoon was elected president after fighting against the Republican political establishment and then having to fight against the Democratic establishment, the Democratic media establishment, and yes even the leadership of the deep state establishment. One man fighting the leadership of the establishment and yet ironically being a member of the establishment elite.

Say what you will about his flawed character or personality but he is by far the one with the most balls or courage to come down the pike in recent history. He has unmasked the corrupt ruthlessness and biases of the elite establishment and I think politics will never be the same old dribble as long as he is in office. It would be nice but Utopian to believe that one man could cure what ails the corrupt dysfunctional leadership of the United States but he has succeeded in unmasking the charade or deceptions of the leadership elite. Regaining obedient trust in the wisdom of the leadership has been shattered and the only way that the leadership will regain that trust is through smart actions and results which will benefit the nation in the long duration.

Trump has made skeptics out of many of us. Many of us now doubt that the leadership is working towards our benefit and not just for the benefit of the monied ruling elite. Already we are seeing some politicians promising everyone free medicine, free schooling, and more welfare goodies but not being too concerned about telling them where the bulk of the money will be coming from to pay for the free stuff.

Big money has always been influential and a priority in politics. In a global economy the Special interests of international banks and corporations is wielding a heavy foot on the fiscal and ideological policy of every nation including the United States.

It is not outside the realm of possibility that soon there will be a guaranteed national basic income for everyone because most will soon not be able to find work in an increasingly technological, robotized, and computer software workplace. There will probably be the technological ruling elite and most will be little more than obedient serfs strung out on feel good drugs and living off of a fixed low income. The well off at the top of the income ladder and the vast majority at the lower end of the income ladder. Most of the middle class will have been destroyed.

Yes, votes will then count and most will be voting for an increase in the national basic income. Unless their votes are reduced to a fraction of a vote, their luxurious demands will quickly bankrupt the welfare economy of the nation. Yes, we may wind up having to tax the robots and computer software that will be doing most of the labor or work and thinking in the nation and not tax the humans on welfare with no income earned.

This all sounds like a doomsday scenario but unless the mechanics of running the nation are radically changed a Democratic Republic will be transformed into an ideological one party tyranny from which there will be no return.
