Here is a look at Donald Trump running for President by Secular Talk.
“The real estate mogul and TV reality star launched his presidential campaign Tuesday, ending more than two decades of persistent flirtation with the idea of running for the Oval Office,” writes CNN.
“So, ladies and gentlemen, I am officially running for president of the United States, and we are going to make our country great again,” Trump told a crowd at the lavish Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York, according to CNN.
He gave a “lengthy and meandering 45-minute speech” that hit on his signature issues like currency manipulation from China and job creation, while also taking shots at the president and his competitors on the Republican side, according to CNN.

The truth is it’s not about Ms. Kelly’s or anyone else’s delicate sensibilities being offended. Nobody gives a flying crap if she is having her period. It’s about saving our country. Washington and the Democrats and Republican parties are beyond corrupt. What is currently in place and has been for the past fifty years is unsustainable.
I wrote Black Sun – White Sand in 1993, before Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City. Publishers told me, “Too far-fetched, could never happen.” Then on September 11, 2001 some religious, zealot, perverted, crazies crashed two airplanes in to the World Trade Center. So much for “too far-fetched.” This was followed in 2003 by George W. Bush’s administration determining that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and invasion was the solution.
At this point in time we have exactly what I predicted in 1993 and that is a political system that has become so corrupt that it is no longer functional. God bless those trying to work within it to make change, Fiorina, Rubio, Cruz, Bush, etc. All good people and obviously extremely dedicated. The problem is they are trying to work within a dysfunctional, antiquated, self-serving environment. Sad truth is they are actually part of the problem in that they are so ingrained and such slaves to that system the likelihood of them ever leaving their comfort zone, overcoming the current entrenched bureaucracy and actually managing to get done what needs to be done has to be regarded as extremely remote.
Not only are the Republican and Democratic Parties part of the problem, the news media is also so corrupt in self-serving bias that they no longer give a damn what the public thinks and serve only to promote prescribed agenda as dictated to them. In fact both CNN and FOX have finally managed to reach the point where they substantiate Joseph Goebbels in the Nazi party line, “Propaganda must not investigate the truth objectively and, in so far as it is favorable to the other side, present it according to the theoretical rules of justice; yet it must present only that aspect of the truth which is favorable to its own side.”
FOX clearly demonstrated this by starting the Republican debate with a biased question, specifically directed to attack Trump. If he had not been there do you really think the question regarding party loyalty would have been asked? Get real! FOX hierarchy either directed (or strongly suggested) mediators specifically ask that question. There was no point to the question as no information was gained. If you don’t know Donald Trump is outside the established party system, you’ve been living under a rock. Difficult to believe FOX or anyone else in the news business lives there.
CNN is just as bad, maybe worse. CNN will tell you what they (and their bosses) want you to hear. Pretty much reflects the propaganda philosophy of WWII Germany.
In fact news agencies … all of them, CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, CNN. Washington Post, NY times, etc. simply no longer deserve public trust. Advertising economics forces them to be completely in bed with party bosses in promoting information suitable to specific cause as they are directed. Despite open and honest claims truth in news reporting is not the objective when it comes in conflict with political views of those spending money on advertising time and as a result reporting is slanted to promote desired bias. It is truly a sad state of affairs when the most trustworthy thing reported is the weather.
Now institutionalized, the system has become unmanageable and is filled with politically astute that are certain to oppose any fundamental change to its processes and procedures of doing business. There is little imagination in determining that anyone trying to work through a dysfunctional system is doomed to failure.
Consider history. A fundamental fact is that, humans haven’t changed. In 410 it is likely that Alaric of the Visigoths considered the Romans in the same way right before they invaded and conquered Rome as did Ragnar Lodbrok, and his Vikings when they found Charles the Bald to be weak and appeasing after he paid them nearly 6000 pounds of silver and gold to leave Paris. An action that pretty much bankrupted all of Europe. Same thing with the Aztecs and the Spaniards. Current policies out of Washington dictate the same response of appeasement and payoff. Just consider this: How much time are we giving Iranians before an inspection of their nuclear facilities? It’s a joke! Clearly history demonstrates appeasement and payoff as a poorly conceived success path.
It is hard to think that, after the actions of the current administration that the Iranian Ayatollahs would not consider the United States as “fruit ripe for the picking”. Obviously, as it relates to our global standing, many other international leaders and agencies are certain to share a similar sense of disrespect.
Is Donald Trump an arrogant pain-in-the-neck? You bet! No question about that. He is blunt and to the point. But you know what, he’s the same pain-in-the-neck that understands economics, fundamental business practices and organizational development and can see through the bullshit of Vladimir, the Chinese, Mexicans, Koreans and the Iranian Ayatollahs because in dealing with Donald there would be no doubt that if your screw with the United States we will kick your ass.
Quite frankly while blunt, offensive to some Mr. Trump is a refreshing change from the status quo and is likely the only chance we have to prevent us from repeating the history of the Romans. If we don’t make the change to an economically viable, sustainable government with secure borders and a strong military our children or grandchildren will likely be bar-b-queuing their house cats and shooting each other in the streets for a can of beans.
Also, no matter how FOX tries to spin it, it is highly doubtful 24 million people tuned in to listen to Jeb Bush or to discuss Ms. Kelly’s menstruation cycle. Mr. Trump brought those ratings and will continue to survive and do well because he represents the patriotic will and capability to make changes that will ensure our children and grandchildren do not grow up learning to speak Chinese.
In parting consider this: How do you get the Mexicans to pay for the fence? Don’t really think that is a problem. Current laws would allow tariffs to restrict trade and increase the price of imported goods and services from Mexico (or wherever) and we can certainly tax the hell out of anybody that wants to go there … or come here on vacation. Fence paid for … The End.

Thank you for your comment.
CNN is hit-or-miss. However, when they simply play footage of politicians or others talking (C-SPAN-style), I think it’s fine.
Fox News, on the other hand, is more likely to give their point of view and opinion. Bill O’Reilly reportedly gets $20 million a year to give his opinion. It must be nice…
Trump is hit-or-miss. If free trade was so great, the U.S. would be in an economic boom now…we have something like 20 free-trade agreements. However, some estimates are that a giant wall along our 1700-mile Mexican border would cost something like $22 billion.
The Berlin wall – by comparison – was something like 80 miles only.
Correction: our 1900-mile long border…
October 4th 2016. Nothing has changed from previous comments of August 2015.
It’s not about Trump. Current business model for the USA is unsustainable. Trump simply provides the People with an option to stop corruption put in place by the Clinton and Jane Fonda types that has resulted in multiple useless, meaningless, winless wars and impending economic disaster.
This is likely the most important election in American history as it provides a paper revolution rather than forcing an armed conflict among the People as the country fights for it’s survival against an establishment of increasing corruption in government. Early 1920’s Russian history looks to be America’s future if Hillary is elected.

Here’s Gabriel’s warning … as I perceive it … And as I wrote in my novel Black Sun – White Sand in 1993.
First: the alliance between North Korea and Iran is the most extreme threat human kind has ever faced.
Second: If the civilized nations, including Muslims, do not challenge and end this alliance it will result in the end of life as we know it.
Third: Most of you and our associated governing bodies will ignore his warning.
Keep in mind, I’m just the messenger! Believe it … don’t believe it … whatever.
Why Gabriel picked me, I have NO IDEA. I’m not particularly religious in thought or act.
