TRUMP FAILS UKRAINE AGAIN

Trump did it again. Failed Ukraine.

Zelensky had a meeting scheduled for monday last in Paris with Putin. The U.S. has been viewed as Ukraine’s “friend.” No more.

First, Trump held up payment of the almost $400 million to the tiny nation that has been fighting Russia for 5 years. Trump delayed payment. Public attention forced him to finally “pay.” He has not paid all, however.  Thirteen percent remains unpaid.

Zelensky never got the sit down with Trump in the White House. He finally was willing to settle for any kind of message that could be taken as U.S. support.

None came.

Trump’s people had promised a message of support prior to the Paris monday meeting. On sunday, Trump’s people indicated it would come in the form of a tweet.

No tweet was sent.

David faced Goliath without even a sling shot.

To add fuel to the fire, monday afternoon Trump received a “surprise” visit from Russia Foreign Minister Lavrov in the Oval Office.

Trump’s cruelty and support for Putin once again obvious.

I am a liberal. Not as extreme as most of you think. Some governmental assistance can be too much.

It was announced yesterday that the Democratic House had approved a $738 billion defense package.

Many times, Washington slips things in a budget which have nothing to do with the actual purpose of the monies being approved. This defense package did so.

The band is playing, the cannons roaring…..Approved was 12 weeks paid parental leave for federal employees. Husband or wife. Covers 2 million workers.

The Senate is expected to approve the legislation and the President sign it into law.

I can understand paid parental leave. Twelve weeks however is way too much. How much enough? I do not know. What I do know is my gut tells me 12 weeks is too much.

Key West homes reflect the Christmas spirit prevalent on the island. Many many homes decorated. More so than up north.

Not sure why. Could be thoughts of another day when some spent Christmas in the snow. Others seeking a tie to families they are not with to celebrate the holiday.

Blog short this morning. My morning ahead busy. Could not be helped.

Enjoy your day!

  1. Joe Biden paid his female Senate staffers much less than men for DECADES, analysis finds – despite his campaign claim that gender pay equity is ‘common sense’

    New analysis examines staff pay records from Biden’s 35-year Senate career finds he paid women 67 cents on average for every dollar male staffers made. In some years, the pay for women dropped to less than half that of men

    • That’s really not very good of Joe Biden is it? Unless of course it is exactly the same as everybody else did, during those same years.

      Now, could you please give us an accurate evaluation of how Trump paid his female employees. Perhaps how he paid his hookers, while you are at it. And perhaps you’d want to compare how each treated their wives?

      My take would be that overall, Biden would look pretty good in how he has treated women, compared to Trump, his opponent in this comparison, quite a bit better, wouldn’t you?

      • Lucy Flores, Amy Lappos, D.J Hill, Caitlyn Caruso, Ally Coll, Sophie Karasek, Vail Kohnert-Yount, Alexandria Tara Reade.

        All Creepy Joe victims.

          • The accusations of sexual abuse against Joe Biden over all the years he’s been in the public eye, amount to nothing more than the equivalent of how our PRESIDENT, Donald Trump, publicly treated German Chancellor Angela Merkel when they first met after he was elected.

            Why any Trump supporter would want to draw attention to the nearly countless and far more serious sexual attacks he (Trump) has made on a much larger number of women, including even those on women in his own family, by trying to smear Joe Biden on this blog (or in any other place), is mind blowing.

            I used to think that Donald Trump was probably the most un selfaware person on this planet, but the person that posted the Joe Biden smear has to take the cake. Budy, what were you thinking?

              • Would be happy to ask them myself, but FOX News is still trying to get them to do that! So far they are not agreeing to do that. Maybe fox isn’t offering enough money quite yet?

                However I am responding to the person who is attempting to speak for them by using their names as a smear. Again, why wouldany Trump supporter would want to draw attention to the nearly countless and far more serious sexual attacks he (Trump) has made on a much larger number of women, including even those on women in his own family, by trying to smear Joe Biden on this blog (or in any other place), is mind blowing. The question, as youcan see, is directed at him, not the ladies>

    • No. Not all staff jobs are created equal in the Biden camp. There’s jobs for men (higher pay) and jobs for women (lower pay).

      • In addition: North Korea is no longer under control? America’s debt is completely out of control, previous official unemployment numbers are being downgraded by the hundreds of thousands, economists are shouting of impending doom, Iran is openly developing atomic weapons, NAFTA is in limbo, NATO is in serious jeopardy, Boeing is allowed to be it’s own, in house safety inspector, Lettuce in the United States is constantly being found to be unsafe to eat, gun violence is becoming one of the leading causes of death for Americans, the President of the United States credibly in jeopardy for flagrantly disobeying the laws of the United States, scholars are seriously talking about American democracy collapsing, our standing around the world is now openly mocked. Our farm economy now having to be subsidized just to exist because of our trade policies. Syria and the rest of the middle east completely bungled.

  2. I love reading what it’s like living in Key West day-to-day. Oh wait, I can’t read that on this blog anymore, just a constant rant about our President.

    I will check back in 5 years to see if Key West is again the subject of this blog. Lou will be 90 then, but at least someone other than Trump will be the target.

    • How can you even care about the goings on in Key West when the economy is red hot, unemployment is at all time lows, the stock market at all time highs, small business enthusiasm growing at breakneck speed, China is being brought to its knees (Honk Kong protests have spread to the mainland) and Donald Trump keeps on winning for us?

      Oh yea… Trump’s mean. Forgot that part.

      • Trump IS mean – this can clearly be shown by him calling everyone at the FBI+ “Scum” and “Scumbags” – that very mean, don’t you think?

        AND he’s also corrupt.

      • In addition: North Korea is no longer under control? America’s debt is completely out of control, previous official unemployment numbers are being downgraded by the hundreds of thousands, economists are shouting of impending doom, Iran is now openly developing atomic weapons, NAFTA is in limbo, NATO is in serious jeopardy, Boeing is allowed to be it’s own, in house safety inspector, Lettuce in the United States is constantly being found to be unsafe to eat, gun violence is becoming one of the leading causes of death for Americans, Industry is still leaving America, despite Trump’s promises, the President of the United States credibly is in jeopardy for flagrantly disobeying the laws of the United States, scholars are seriously talking about American democracy collapsing, our standing around the world is now openly mocked. Our farm economy now having to be subsidized just to exist because of our trade policies. Syria and the rest of the middle east completely bungled.

          • At this rate, things will only get worse if MAGA continues as it has for the past three years. There are signs that things will improve, just today Trump has had to reverse himself on his horrible policy with China. Looks like his trade war was a flop and to get reelected in the US he is forced to reverse himself. Those with the fever will declare victory, those whose lives are based in reality will see it for what it is, ANOTHER complete failure. +

            I pity those few good people who used to like calling themselves conservatives, but now find that too embarrazing anymore, what with Louie Gohmert, Nunes, Duncan Hunter, Jim Jordan, Sandy Feet and the rest of those off the wall bozo’s running things, say nothing of Trump. Please, those of you decent few who are still left, please make this lunacy go away. Let the freaks believe what they want, save yourself before it is too late.

  3. Saw a clip from Trump’s latest rally. He is getting better and better at stand up comedy, it definitely makes a great side hustle for him and will be something to fall back on in the future. Vegas get ready, here he comes.
