Trump_ The Alpha male

Trump is running an exceptionally visceral campaign.

As Donald Trump’s GOP opponents regroup in South Carolina, they are running into a new political phenomenon: Trump is riding on a wave of adulation. Rarely has a presidential hopeful emerged like Donald Trump, who consistently touts his resume and plans for the nation in sweeping and over-the-top terms.

All politicians like to brag about their abilities and achievements. But Trump is particularly unique in how he talks about himself: “My brain is very sharp, super-genius stuff.’’ “I’m much smarter than you.” “I think I have a much higher IQ.” “I think I went to a better college — better everything.” I have the world’s greatest memory.” “I’m proud of my net worth. I’ve done an amazing job.” “I’m self-funding my campaign.” “I’m probably the least racist person on Earth. For many voters, Trump is the ultimate alpha male who says exactly what is on his mind and his appeal is fairly broad in South Carolina where a majority of angry, rural white males feel disadvantaged by the economy and overlooked by the establishment.

Will Trump betray the GOP?

Right now, the GOP establishment is being torn between two conflicting ways of thinking about the clear front runner to be their party’s presidential nominee. The first says that apart from Donald Trump’s chances in a general election, his nomination would be a disaster for conservatism. Having him as the nominee would leave conservatives without a party. The second way of thinking says that while all that may be true, there is little choice but to make peace with the possibility that Trump could be the nominee.

While there is wisdom in acceptance, those verging on panic, have a more accurate assessment of Trump: not only is he not a true conservative, but there is also the possibility that he could betray them even sooner than they think. There is no reason to think that Trump will not turn on a dime the instant he has to face a general electorate, and begin advocating a whole new set of policies. Up to now, during his campaign, he adopted an entirely new set of beliefs, one attuned to what his current audience wants. Trump is not only just xenophobic, but fervently pro-life, pro-gun, pro-God, and pro-whatever else he thinks primary voters want to hear. Unlike other politicians who struggle to explain any hint of contradiction between what they are advocating now and what they’ve advocated before, Trump waves it all away.

Booing Trump during a debate is not a good idea!

Unlike other politicians, Trump seems to have no friends, no allies and no commitments. He is completely stranger to everything that gives any sort of shape and predictability to politics. You say something he does not like: you are dead to him. Any cooperation he shares with anyone is temporary and conditional on him being “treated fairly.” The instant he decides he is not, his former friend becomes his foe. Trump has no real history in conservative or Republican politics and because he is not bothering to court the people and groups who populate the party’s institutions and coalition, he has no promises to keep.

Trump does not care about The Party, and a lot of Republican voters don’t either.

OBAMA-Sorry

Barack Obama under fire 

WASHINGTON – As the United States of America president for the last 4-1/2 years, Obama has faced accusation after accusation of impinging on civil liberties, disappointing his liberal Democratic base and providing fodder for rival Republicans as he deals with the realities of office.

When he took office in 2009, Obama promised to close the Guantanamo camp but it remains open. Today, Obama says he will revisit that pledge and blames Congress for blocking his plan. Under his presidency, we have seen aerial drone strikes abroad, in places such as Pakistan and Yemen. We have seen repeated seizure of journalists’ files and phone records.

Even though there were reasons to think Obama would have been different from some of his predecessors, because of his background and because of what he said during the electoral campaign, we have to realize he his no different from some presidents like George W. or Nixon when it comes to balancing national security and individual liberties issues.

Obama is no Clinton and no Kennedy and his marketing and preaching approach of the presidency will never make up for his mistakes. Obama is now facing the realities of being president. When he won his place as the first African-American in the White House, many Americans applauded another advance in the country’s long civil rights movement. Since then, while Obama is still trying to present himself as a progressive Democrat, he has not been very successful at representing himself as a fiery civil libertarian. Under his presidency, there has been a constant effort from the Obama’s administration to control the message.

Even though Hilary would have been a better president than Obama and the fact that Sarah could not have done worse, whatever the situation, compared to the abuse of the George W. Bush-era, the Watergate scandal during Richard Nixon’s administration and the Iran-contra controversy during Ronald Reagan’s years, we still in the minor-abuse league.

Lets see, what will happen next.

Obama official Portrait

Barack Obama

Nearly five months second term, none of his projects from his first mandate have been completed and he has already lost control of his second term agenda, if he ever had one in the first place. His future as a comedian is more promising than his political career.

Much rhetoric and not very much action, Obama seems to suffer from an incurable form of verbal diarrhea. Maybe, like he already suggested, he should just pack up and go home. Many now tend to believe him when he says that his job is very difficult: intelligence sharing “this is hard stuff”, closing Guantanamo “It’s a hard case to make”, Republican governors blocking his health-care law’s implementation “that makes it harder” and responding in Syria “it is a difficult problem” he says.

Well Mister president, if you cannot stand the heat, maybe it is time for you to step out of the kitchen, what I believe you have already done.

Revelation

Various scientific scenarios have been theorized on an eventual doomsday.

1. – An asteroid or comet’s collision with Earth.

Such an event although very improbable for the next few years, happened in the past and will happen again.

Given that the asteroid or comet is big enough, an applicable scenario predicts a chemical change in the atmosphere due to “heat shock” produced by the entry in the atmosphere and impact on earth of the asteroid or comet. Such chemical change would involve the production of nitric-acid rains, the bitterness produced by the Biblical prediction of the Wormwood Star upon a third of the Earth’s potable water.

2. – Is the earth pole shift theory possible?

If a large enough comet or asteroid falls on Earth to produce acid rains, the consequences of such and event will include earthquakes, tsunamis and massive destruction of populations that could mean the “End of Times”. But what about an Earth pole shift?

As a matter of fact, the magnetic field of the Earth has actually switched its direction many times during Earth’s history. This can be verified from geologic records indicating that the Lava flows that have solidified 30,000 years ago are evidence that the magnetic field of the earth was in the opposite direction at that time. The same geologic records show that such a reversal could possibly take less than 100 years.

One effect that may occur during a magnetic reversal is that the Earth may not be protected from charged particles streaming from the sun. These particles are called the “solar wind“, and could be dangerous to life if they reached the Earth’s surface. Solar wind energy can also cause “space plasma storms”, that could cause communication satellites and electronic equipment and instrumentation to fail. Such plasma storms can also cause damage to electric power systems on the surface of the Earth. A large space storm in 1989 made currents on the ground that caused a failure in the Hydro-Quebec electric power system. This prevented 6 million people in Canada and the US from having electricity for over 9 hours.

3. –What about a “man made” apocalyptic disaster?

Do I really have to answer to this one?

We have civil and religious wars going all around the world, economic and political conflicts, poverty and misery, all over the world. The only question is who would be crazy enough to draw first blood.

Bashar Al Assad? Benjamin Netanyahu? Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? Kim Jong-un? Vladimir Putin? Barack Obama? Any one of these men or any country that owns the nuclear technology can trigger a sequence of events of apocalyptic dimensions that would fit all the biblical and prophetic description of the end of the world.

Hillary Clinton, United States Secretary of State

When asked by Marie Claire magazine last month if she would make another bid for the White House, she said, “No, I’m not.”

(USA) After Mitt Romney’s defeat last Tuesday, the 2016 presidential campaign for the White House is already getting under way.

With President Barack Obama winning a second term on Tuesday, speculation over the next race for the White House is getting started. An incumbent will not run in 2016, meaning both, the Republican and the Democrat parties may have competitive nomination battles.

The two names grabbing the most attention in the hunt for the next Democratic nomination are Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, my money being on Hilary Clinton if she decides to run. Biden, who will be 73 on Election Day 2016, already made unsuccessful bids for the nomination in 1988 and 2008 and it is most unlikely that he will be afforded a new opportunity. With Obama going nowhere without the assistance and support of Hilary and Bill Clinton, the truth is, everyone else is frozen until Hillary decides what she wants to do.

As for the Republicans, before making any decision as to run or not, any potential candidate will better make sure that Hillary will not be running and that all the issues and internal dissension inside the party are resolved.

Running against Hillary will not be easy.

President Obama’s official portrait

Early spring 2012, President Obama’s Chicago veteran campaign staff is confronting the question that would ultimately decide the presidency: how to run against Mitt Romney?

The choice discussed was whether to campaign against Romney as a flip-flopper or to cast him as a protector of the privileged at the expense of the middle class, a man who willingly fires people and is disconnected from how average Americans live their lives. The choice was made: Mitt Romney was to be shown and depicted as a heartless executive. While the Obama campaign decided to set the campaign’s course in the summer of 2012, Romney’s senior staffers put their money on winning a decisive autumn. But, as the attacks mounted from the Obama’s side, many of the Romney’s advisers were really concerned. Instead of addressing the issue then, it was decided to wait for a later time, during the convention and the debates. – First mistake.

The Obama’s campaign decision to focus on Romney helped set an angry tone for the multibillion-dollar campaign that was to come and was the deciding factor of this presidential election. The turnout, yesterday of the African-Americans, Latinos, women, and young voters in swing states proved it. Obama, weighed down by a poor economy and the sudden eruption of violence and conflicts in the Middle East, needed help. Bill Clinton came to the rescue and Mitt Romney himself did the rest. The Republican’s brash condemnation of Americans who do not pay federal income taxes, Romney’s quick criticism of the administration for a spike in Middle East violence, and even his choice of a running mate that brought unexpected tension into the campaign all worked against his mid-fall effort to surmount Obama’s lead.

Obama’s effort to portray Romney as a part of the economic problem resonated in the upper Midwest, where the race in many ways was cemented. In Ohio, Obama’s early decision to bail out the auto industry, and Romney’s opposition to the plan, helped frame the contest in the incumbent’s favor before it even began. In the final stretch, Obama almost squandered his hard-won lead with a bewildering performance in his first debate with Romney. But, for a candidate whose political career has been touched at times by luck, Hurricane Sandy arrived with a week left in the race and disrupted Romney’s effort.

All my money was on Romney but I never could have predicted Sandy.

 Romney has path to victory

Obama still have the upper hand in the state-by-state fight to cobble together the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency in the November 6 election. But Romney’s recent surge in the polls has propelled him into the lead or within striking distance in enough states to give him a reasonable chance of beating Obama to the finish line. 

Most national polls are now showing Obama and Romney deadlocked and in such a close race, any surprise development during the final two weeks could loom large and, on Monday in Boca Raton, Florida, Romney is once again likely to challenge Obama on his handling of the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya while the alleged one-on-one talks about Iran’s nuclear program between the US and Iran is another issue that could shape the narrative of the campaign’s final days.

It is going to be a really close election.

My prediction: Romney will be the next American President
