The Grand Bargain

President G. W. Bush famously would not talk, let alone negotiate with North Korea, Iran and Cuba. He called the three nations the Axis of Evil. President Barack Obama was elected in part because he promised to talk with and negotiate with these nations.

Back in 2011 Speaker of the House John Boehner and President Obama negotiated a multi trillion Grand Bargain. It encompassed spending cuts and tax increases. Supposedly the two men shook on it. Somehow when they went to put it on paper the whole thing fell apart. Since then the national debt has increased exponentially.

Currently the Democrats do not acknowledge, let alone talk with the Trump administration. Negotiations between the two parties seem a distant dream. Seems like like the Democrats have taken up an ideology attributed to G. W. Bush. They have renounced negotiations and now refuse to even talk.

I had hoped that there would some opportunities for negotiations with the deal making President Trump. The country needs something like the Grand Bargain. Unfortunately the election has induced a extended case of catatonia of the Democrat Party.

COVFEFE ? what is the meaning?

“Despite all the negative press covfefe” Probably President Trump’s most famous tweet to date. I have seen the word covfefe all over the place. Some of the usage has been rather funny. My first thought was it must be an acronym, though I wasn’t going to try and figure it out.

All the coverage was “Stupid Trump fell asleep whilst tweeting, why is he our president” or some variation on it. The absolute kindest thing I saw was he was trying to type “coverage” when he hit send, or whatever they do when tweeting, and fell asleep. Only to wake up in the morning and ask “who can figure out the true meaning of ‘covfefe’ ??? ¬†Enjoy”

No I do not follow tweets, though tens of millions of people follow President Trump on Twitter. Occasionally I do see the presidential tweets on the morning news, this was the case the other day, so I did know what covfefe was in reference to in other contexts.

Today on Facebook I saw the “True Meaning”, and I have to say that I was once again impressed. This particularly fine troll of of the press by the president follows the graphic embodiment of the CNN ethos by Kathy Griffin with her performance artwork. The depiction of an acephalous Trump is quite universal. The media believes at this point the president is no more than a virtual corpse, and we Trumpkins are just to dense to know it. Silly elites.

Let me paint a little picture with words. When President Trump and King Salman were at the photo op with the “Glowing Orb” (I prefer the illuminated world, but most know it as the glowing orb) King Salman spoke a couple of words to President Trump. There was no translator at that moment. President Trump wondered what the words meant, so he remembered them. Maybe he wrote them on the back of his hand? I don’t know. So when the president gets home, and has some free time he goes to Google translate. The President doesn’t want anyone to interpret the words, as he really doesn’t know what was said. However he would find out. Then when the president figured out what the king had said, he tweeted it. Of course he improved the context.

The press finds a cognizant acephalous Trump stating covfefe the most terrifying thing in the world, and would never mention this resurrection, so I will.

With their hands on an enlightened world, the King said to the President “I will Stand”.

The Glowing Orb Knows All

President Trump, Saudi King Abdulaziz, Egyptian President Al-Sisi all placed their hands on an illuminated globe during the opening ceremony for a new “Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology” in Ridyah Saudi Arabia.

The center presumes to stop the threat of growing extremism. The globe is meant to shine light for all. This is represented by the leaders placing their hands, together, on the light of the world. Who knows, maybe it will work. At least it is an attempt to atone for past sins. A valid and positive thing in my opinion. I am willing to give it time to see what happens.

The Washington Post wrote that the “Glowing Orb is the embodiment of all evil” The New York Times stated “A mysterious glowing orb is exerting uncanny power over the world’s social media” My local morning news had a series of strange mimes about the”Orb”. Of course I had to look up what they were talking about.

The glowing orb is located at an intelligence center, so it must know all. That’s what I say. I wonder if most people, who just watch the news know what the “Glowing Orb” represents. Or if they just think President Trump is Satan. Personally I don’t think that the media is very informative. They seem to disseminate disinformation rather professionally.
