Modern Predictions

A New Progressive Political Party?

It's arguable, and can be demonstrated because of the Democrat super delegates, that the 2016 nomination was stolen from Bernie Sanders (and his bro's). Now in 2020, there is a concerted effort underway in the Democrat party to deny him the nomination again. The Party prefers corrupt, old, Slow Joe Biden because he's not a communist. However there are a lot of communists who find themselves in the ranks of the Democrat Party.

It may be that the progressive wing of the Democrat Party forms their own National Socialist Worker's Party for the likes of Bernie and Liz (who have had a falling out not unlike Adolph Hitler and  Ernst Röhm, who didn't survive the push and shove with Adolph). Having a new brand might make the Party more appealing to those who find the corrupt, old, senile Biden a bit difficult to take.

Rather than budget for a new logo, they could simply use the one adopted by Obama, for arm bands, a flag and such. Maybe they'd want to put a hammer and sickle in the middle of the O? I can't really suggest anything that is nearly as 'woke' as that.

MEXIT

Will Harry and Meagan go into the illegal narcotics business? There are a couple of advantages for the talentless couple, who lack any skill set that an employer may want. (1) They have diplomatic immunity and can't be prosecuted; (2) They have an insatiable need for money and large scale drug smuggling will scratch that itch; (3) It doesn't require much talent; (4) They could come up with their own branding for fentanyl that would make it seem more fashionable; (5) The couple could turn to Meagan's Hollywood friends for an immediate market; (6) Canada has pledged $850K for their security. I don't know what Cartel leaders need to pay, but Canada is definitely underwriting their overhead.

Cooperating with China

CHINA TRADE DEAL  (part one)

You can read the entire 94 pages of the trade deal on the Fox News website.  There are a number of people including me, who feel that the Chinese will cheat since they've been doing that with every agreement that the US has signed with them. If that turns out to be the case, there will be no part two and trade sanctions will follow.

I know that some of this blog's readers would rather get into a nuclear exchange to find out who is left standing when it comes to US/China relations. You have the right to your opinion. However, there are others (many of whom live in targeted cities on both sides of the pond) who feel differently. Having traveled to China, having dealt with the Chinese government(s) at some level, having done business with companies in China and having met with many Chinese people, I think that we can all get along.

Part of the problem with the calculus is that we've had crooked American politicians - Creepy old Slow Joe Biden and his criminal son, Hunter, come to mind. They take billion dollar bribes and end up selling this country down the river. You could blame China. I feel that Creepy old Vice President Joe is to blame. Of course, there are a lot of cronies and the mainstream media that will run top cover for him because they have filthy hands too.

Anyway, it's a new world and we have a trade deal. Hopefully there is a way forward.

China's economy has taken a lot of hits from the US under President Trump, they have a disaster in Hong Kong and Taiwan is flipping them the middle finger. They want the deal so that they have predictability. So do people in the US who do business with them.
