Blogging about Trump

I have been blogging for eleven years now and in August it will be 11.5 years. There have been dry spells when inspiration has been lacking, but Trump and his henchmen/women are gifts that keep on giving.

Larry Kudlow, Trump’s chief economic adviser, has a reputation for always being wrong. Whether that reputation is deserved or not, I do not know. Trump’s advisers come and go so rapidly that it is difficult to keep abreast. Nevertheless, it does not bode well for the US economy to have him whispering in Trump’s ear. The US economy is the primary concern of many Americans.

Although I am concerned about the economy, I am retired and my primary concern has shifted to war and peace. John Bolton, Trump’s national security adviser, was a principal architect of the Iraq War. I believe that he is looking for a small and weak country that the US could defeat in a war that we “win.” Bolton believes that North Korea, Iran or Venezuela could fill the bill and would also distract the country from Russiagate.

Sign of the times or is it a time of the signs? In any case, a stunning upset in New York’s 14th Congressional district where Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won the Democratic primary in a heavily Democratic district. We need more candidates and victories like this. Empirical evidence demonstrates that legislative bodies become more democratic with a small “d” when women comprise one-third or more of the members.
