2018 & 2020 Assessment

2018 mid-term election cycle presently places Democrats at a disadvantage even if they shift Republican seats in Blue-States; they’re not going to win the majority until 2020. Therefore, if we’re going to evaluate political ideologies, 2018 is largely a skirmish that determines how intense the 2020 election cycle will be. The 2020 election cycle is […]

What Diplomatic Solutions?

There’s two requirements for diplomatic solutions short of seeking an unconditional surrender that requires military solutions to geopolitical issues: 1). Each Party of the diplomatic negotiations meet as equals regardless of what is effectively considered ‘paper strength’ (paper strength is overall measurements of economics like GDP, military strength, and etc). The CIA Fact-Book estimates falls […]

Republicans’ Leadership Political Expediency

It would seem Republicans’ leadership political maneuvering for political expediency continues: http://www.nationalreview.com/article/449644/donald-trump-character-flaws-supporters-russia-collusion-investigation He’s not the engine but the hood ornament for a movement that now feels liberated from traditional rules of decent behavior. During the campaign, conservatives said they were embracing Donald Trump despite his character. They were willing to overlook his flaws in order […]

Response to “Russia Russia Russia”

One of the blog posts featured in my reader is titled “Russia Russia Russia” https://somethingelse4all.wordpress.com/2017/07/11/russia-russia-russia/ The author suggested examining the Trump-Putin meeting from Putin’s perspective. Play it out in your mind, but take the part of Putin.   The article was written prior to the Trump Jr meetings with the ‘Russian government Lawyer’ regarding opposition […]

Trump-Putin Meeting

The Trump-Putin lead up and post meet assessment. http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/340914-the-memo-five-things-to-watch-in-trump-putin-meeting The encounter takes place as investigators search for any evidence of collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia’s efforts to influence the presidential election. No such evidence has yet been uncovered, but the backdrop makes the Putin meeting politically perilous for the president. Here are the key […]

Democrat Leadership And Republican Leadership Dilemmas

To be blunt, after additional thought and additional information capable of being added, it strikes me as prudent to rewrite the entire post and restructure it. Recall, the Democratic and Republican Parties are designed Top-Down and Bottom-Up, so they are institutionally accustomed traditionally being able to influence or otherwise compel their rank and file base […]

Tax Reform Shouldn’t Surprise Anyone

I’ve already touched on this issue in several ways. https://theproblematicmy2cents.wordpress.com/2017/03/28/tax-reform-debt-ceiling-and-budget/ (link not inserted) the economy is based on an Agricultural-Consumerist-Service economy, so it’s not in governmental fiefdoms, public-private partnerships, and aspiring public-private mergers to promote raising the debt ceiling to prioritize capital structure in the budget. It will promote the Agricultural-Consumerist-Service economy that caters to […]

Progressive Democrats and Republicans Political Maneuvering for Political Expediency Part 4

This series seems to require a fourth installment even though I prefer to keep series to no more than three. First, Progressives are just Bismarkianists who follow Bismarkianism re-imaged to Progressivisim. Bismarkianism is a political ideology who strives and aspires for Absolute Authority, and Absolute Authority is parallel to an Absolute Monarchy of old. If […]

Progressive Democrats and Republicans Political Maneuvering for Political Expediency Part 3

  I had stated previously that I would address America2050.org research paper’s proposed solutions in a latter article just not quite in the way; I was planning. Ever heard the adage ‘plans rarely survive the first engagement’?; the adage seems pretty apt here. America2050.org http://www.america2050.org/about.html America 2050 is Regional Plan Association’s national infrastructure planning and […]

Progressive Democrats and Republicans Political Maneuvering for Political Expediency Part 1

I’d expect a government shutdown, and the Office Management and Budget (OMB) will as history indicates make the shutdown as painful to the populace as possible. It’s pretty simple. If the US GDP bubble cannot be sustained without first and foremost promoting the sole superpower status is sole power status to maintain the US Dollar […]
