One president at a time

The US only has one president at a time. Donald Trump is acting as though he were already president and the media are covering him as such. Barack Obama is still president and will continue to be for another month and a half. Vote recounts are still in process and the electoral college has not yet elected Trump, and hopefully never will.

New Yorkers know

On his show last evening, Bill O’Reilly criticized the amount of welfare received by residents of New York city and castigated them for voting for Hillary Clinton and against his hero, Donald Trump by a margin exceeding 80-20%. I am not a New Yorker, but I suspect that New Yorkers embraced Hillary and rejected Donald because they know them better than does the rest of the country. If the rest of country knew the candidates as well as New Yorkers do, Hillary would have won both the popular vote and the majority of the electoral college, instead of just a narrow victory in the popular vote. That’s my opinion.

Israel’s enemies

Michael Flynn, Trump’s national security advisor, considers Iran an enemy of the US because Israel can’t get along with it. We should let Israel deal with her own enemies and not do it for her. If Israel is forced to live with her enemies, perhaps she will finally get serious about peace in the area.

Please see Michael Flynn
