Trump and China - Trump Era

Lets Get Real:

In foreign policy one has to be careful, with Asian politics eve more so, face/honour is very important to China, they are also the banker for the US.   The US needs China to buy its bonds, otherwise it could not spend money like a drunken sailor.   On the other hand China has so much US debt it can not afford to see the US go in to economic decline, it is a very much a Mexican stand off, also China is a counter balance to Russia, thus has to be kept happy, let us hope Trump knows what he is doing in China, foreign policy is more complex than building a Hotel.

Recount Process - Part 9 - Michigan - Trump Era

Lets Get Real:

The chance that the recounts will change the result are slim, but it is important to check, the election shows that Trump does not have a great mandate to change the course, of course it can be argued that election of Trump itself is a mandate, these kind of rhetoric debates can go on till forever.   The Republicans as is their right have the right to challenge these recounts, it would be SAD if the result came from the Courts, as in 2000 election.

Recount Process Part 8 - Trump Era

Lets Get Real:

The above shows there are votes out there that have not been counted, the Greens and the Democrats should push their demands for a hand recount and a check of the election machines to see if they have been hacked.   The demand for a software check might be harder to get, as the Courts do not want to go through each Machine, it would take months, the deadline for votes in December 13th.  The Democratic Party should be supporting Stein, with legal and money support, there is long shot chance she might be right, better to check than a President Trump.
