POTUS and the US Attorney General - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

This could be POTUS being sneaky, he wants the AG to go but does not want to be seen as a hatched man, the idea one can postulate is that POTUS wants the AG to get fed up and leave, then POTUS would hire a new Attorney General, one who would run the Russian investigation and keep the Oval Office informed of any developments.  The Democrats have a problem, they have complained that the AG did not inform them of ALL his Russian meetings, on the other hand they do not want to allow POTUS to chose a new AG.   The Democrats still have not got a a smoking gun over Russia, and if they place too much pressure on the AG they could be helping POTUS.   This is a reality show on the big stage, and Trump is the Master of that form. 

Civil War in Labour over Brexit - Post Brexit Debate


Lets Get Real:

The Labour Party is divided as the Conservatives when it comes to the EU, it will be interesting to see in September how the Labour Party will vote when it comes to the repeal of the EU Treaty.  If Corbyn tells his MPs to abstain when it comes to the vote how many will obey and how many will vote to block the move.  In a odd way it works for the Conservatives to have Corbyn as the Leader of Labour, he has never supported the EU, and thus can be expected not to oppose the Government when it comes to Brexit.  Those in the Conservative Party that want to replace PM May have only this one chance to ACT, otherwise she could be there for the duration.   It will be interesting to see what August silly stories come up, they always happen in this holiday period. 

The Trump White House - Congressional Investigation


Lets Get Real:

The Trump son and son in law should be in the CLEAR if nothing else comes out, the Democrats are seeking a smoking gun, anything that connects POTUS to the Russians.   The Democrats have to be careful, the US voter so far do not see a scandal, and there is no information that shows that POTUS changed US foreign policy because of Russian pressure.   One finds it hard to understand WHY POTUS has been so defensive about Russia, either he can see a global strategy that includes Russia or the FSB has something on Trump, but and here is the but there is no proof that POTUS is under Russian influence.   US Media has gone after this story for months, and thus far there is NOTHING, random meetings, no PROOF that the Trump Campaign was in partnership with the Russians.   On the special consul side, the investigation has developed to go after the Trump finances, are there any Russian connections, does Russia hold Trump Debt, thus far nothing.   This issue will last weeks if not months.

Trump and Iran - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

The FACT that the Uber liberal New York Times carried water for Stalin and the USSR should tell if you should trust the NYT with US foreign policy, the NYT is defending the legacy of President Obama, after eight years of the Obama, the Administration had two real victories, health care and Iran, the Trump Administration is trying to write President Obama out of history.    The Tehran Regime supports terrorism in the Middle East and is a threat to Israel, thus the US and its allies should not be fooled by Iran, they are threat that is needed to be watched, action might be needed if they break the Nuclear Agreement, time will only tell.

Trump vs. AG Sessions - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

The US AG can not be sacked by President Trump as this would unite Republicans and Democrats in calls to impeach the President.  It was reported on the news last night that Sessions had offered to resign many times but that POTUS has refused the resignation.   The Oval might be minded to have Sessions sack his Deputy and the special consul, would Sessions follow such an order to get back in to the good books of the Oval Office.   A Pence Administration looks like the outcome, Trump will not give way when it comes to Russia, either he is a political fool or the Russians have something on him, either way it hurts the US.   These investigations could go on for years. 

The Troubles with the EU - Post EU Brexit


Lets Get Real:

The UK has to be CLEAR with the EU, the UK will become sovereign after the UK leaves the EU, its Courts will decide cases that connect the UK with EU.   The EU will not have a role in UK law.   As paying for leaving, that is a non starter, in fact it can be argued that the EU owes the UK billions.   It is time to be tough with the EU, do not waffle British Government, tell the Germans and the French, if they want to keep the EU they will have to pay for it, the UK has voted for the EXIT.

HRC does worse in the polls than President Trump - Post Election 2016


Lets Get Real:

I know what I have said about the polls, but if your a political geek you have to work with something, the above poll shows that the LEFT in the US, like the LEFT in the UK is on the rise, the young voters were not born in the 1970s, they have not seen what mighty out of control government can do, they read history but do not understand.  Let's be HONEST the young are thick and naive, thick you can understand, but naivety is a great SIN in the books of this blog.   They do not understand that the Reagan/Thatcher broke the political establishment idea of what government should do and not do, they were great leaders, while their successors have not been great.   One is starting to think that the young should not get the vote in till they are 25, even then they should be tested by exam by those that understand history and politics.
