    I just want a place to post a few effects of Trump's victory around the world.

    1. Swedish neo-Nazis took to the streets of Stockholm recently in their biggest demonstration since WW2 - inspired, they said, by the election victory of Donald Trump.

      Yes, the alt-right is on the march around the world, encouraged and enabled by the ascendency of Donald J. Trump, Esquire, President-Elect.

      And this is just the beginning......

    I'm not certain whether we blame this on Trump's election or the distorted media coverage which attempted to turn this election into a racist event. Hoping to help Hillary win.

    Maybe, if we are lucky, the fringe radicals from both ends will eventually settle down and accept that they are outnumbered and will always remain so.

      I read this earlier and had some questions as to how Sweden's Democrat Nazi (nationalists vs internationalists) think in perspective to left or right wings there, compared to US politics.  Its distorted from my view, but its what it is. 

      This article was most helpful, although I couldn't agree with some fine points.  But, I do have a better understanding of how things are interrupted so differently across the ponds.

    Trump's Pick of David Friedman as Israel Envoy

    “The position he advocates is more extreme than any government of Israel has stated,” said Rabbi Rick Jacobs, president of the Union for Reform Judaism, the nation’s largest Jewish denomination, in an interview with Haaretz, citing Friedman’s public statements favoring Israeli annexation of the West Bank rather than pursuit of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

    California to defect to the modern world?

    Quote:

    California has a back-up plan if President-elect Donald Trump cuts funding for NASA's fleet of Earth-observing satellites, which are crucial to gathering climate change data.

    "If Trump turns off the satellites, California will launch its own damn satellite," California Gov. Jerry Brown said to applause during a Dec. 14 speech at an Earth science conference in San Francisco.

    "We're going to collect that data."

    A more dangerous world:

    On Thursday, Trump tweeted: “The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.”

    In May, he suggested he could support South Korea, Japan and Saudi Arabia arming themselves with nuclear weapons for their own defence. “It’s going to happen anyway,” he told CNN. “It’s only a question of time.”

      I don't know, in this day and age, I find that attitude a bit unsettling, not to mention, irresponsible. But, again, I did not vote for the man for reasons just like this.

      Seems to me that we have adaquate nuclear capacity, already. I thought that the goal was to throttle back on the terror, not accelerate it.

      How is he going to stop other wanna be nuclear powers from their ambitions short of war?

        You will have to wait for his next tweet to find out. Or not. Apparently Putin is planning to expand Russia's nuclear arsenal. So after decades of receding fear of nuclear war, it is going to be ratcheted up again.

        It's worth reading 1984, if you have't already. The loyalty of the masses is maintained by constant war. The hero's job is the falsification of history in the Ministry of Truth. The proles are a poverty stricken lot ignored by their rulers since they are powerless.

        Of course, Orwell was analyzing Soviet communism but 1984 could be coming to the US soon.

          Orwell was prophetic, this is a crucial 'need to read' particularly today. Seems like without war the whole concept of full employment and capitalism is nothing more than wrapping paper. But again, that is what Orwell eludes to in his  book.

          Trump knows that bringing back employment and industry paradynes of the past is impossible, but gear up the military, you can put people back to work. Is this a repeat of Red Scare, Cold War sort of politics? You can't be serious, not again? I would have liked to think after so many years of trial and error, we would have all figured this out by now. But, alas.....
