Trump’s coronation by his blind admirers was not the only act of global importance this weekend. We also saw a Turkish Parliament vote that turns Recep Tayyip Erdogan into a Presidential Sultan; he remembers that January 22, 1517 – just a mere 600 years ago – the Turks conquered Cairo.

Prime Ministers Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel and Theresa May of the UK compete to be the new US Chief’s first guest. The Tsar of Russia, Vladimir Putin expressed his wishes to co-reign with the new United States, while at the Davos World Economic Forum, the playing ground of world’s capitalists, it was Xi Jinping – the Chinese Communist Party leader – who is viewed as the new world leader of Free Trade and Globalization. Quite a global change!


And Pope Francis warns against rise of populist leaders ‘like Hitler’ as Donald Trump sworn in as President He said among other things – “In times of crisis, we lack judgement.

President Donald Trump’s World-view is best depicted in a Kurier of Austria, January 22, 2017, drawing:

On the left side it shows a bloated US (TRUMP – Great Again!) sitting on a brick wall under which all of Latin America is marked Mexico.

On the right side you see the British Islands marked Brexit under which there is a rather smallish area labelled Pussies – that becomes recognizable thanks to the Italy-boot.
Underneath there is a much larger area labelled with a crossed-out ISIS and from the West side an incoming missile.

To the further right there is a nondescript large blob marked “Maybe Russia, Maybe China.”

If that map does not talk to you, then you had better listened to Fareed Zakaria’s program on his GPS (Global Public Square) and then followed up on NBC’s “Meet the Press” where Chuck Todd was trying to get answers from Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s Senior Adviser on how to beat the press. Obvious to the blind – The President is the LIAR-IN-CHIEF, his Press Secretary – the bamboozler par excellence and Kellyanne – the obnoxious fighter that brought them to where they are today.
From the Washington Post Evening Edition, January 22, 2017: Challenged on falsehoods, Conway says Trump team has ‘alternative facts’ that translates to Alternative meaning evasion and un-truth – simply said intended lies she makes up to avoid an answer.

Bette Midler posted today her findings that Trump’s cabinet is the richest in the history of the nation – worth over 14 billion dollars.
Wonder why you have no money? Because they have it All!

An Israeli facebook writer expressed her question that she does not understand who learned from whom – Netanyahu from Trump or Trump from Netayahu. We have the answer to her dilemma – both learned from Sbeldon Adelson – the Casino mogul from Macao who lives in Miami and who funded the political campaigns of Netanyahu and of the extreme right in the US of which Trump was the ultimate beneficiary. In Israel Adelson bought up the media outlets and created that fake impression of reality. Now, what the wonder that Trump’s Cabinet looks like a Goldman Sachs retreat and the proposed Secretary of State is the greatest Oil Industry executive?

Looking at that “Inauguration speech” that Trump made on Friday in front of a mainly
male audience pockmarked by all those blonde Republican wives, the right-looking well established journalist – George Will – writes:
“Trump vindicated his severest critics by serving up re-heated campaign rhetoric about rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape and an education system
producing students deprived of all knowledge. Yes all.
But cheer up, because the carnage will vanish if we follow two simple rules: Buy American and Hire American. ‘Simple’ is the word.”

Trump missed his chance to make a unifying speech and ended up sawing more division of an already split nation. The event was thus real in its fakeness but next week the country is his to rule. Will he make it better for all – not just for his bunch of oligarchs?

From Kellyanne’s pearls: “*On the Whitehouse press room – “We can’t let the press into the White House press room if they are going to question the facts presented by the team or the President himself.” *On Trump’s tax returns: “The president will NOT release his tax returns. The people don’t want that – they are interested in their own tax returns.”
*On the million who marched in America and more around the world: “I discussed it with him briefly but didn’t see any point to focus on it.”

The most incisive comments on Trump we found in the weekly column of a wise Israeli – Uri Avnery who has seen it all and has clear memories that stretch for 90 years.

He writes that President Trump does not know a thing about history and about many other things as well. Tramp knows real estate and how to make money. But some of the most terrible
wars were started because of ignoramuses. You can think of the First World War, on the millions of dead that started because of an unimportant Serb. Then the Second World War and its tens of millions of dead that was caused by Adolf Hitler, a primitive man, who crossed the border into Poland without giving a thought that he starts a world war. He did not believe that Britain, an Arian Nation he admired, will declare war again him.

Avnery starts his column by saying the only thing that is sure is that we are facing four years of uncertainty. Every morning he expects to get up and first thing he will try to find out what this man will do today. He will be the entertaining-president The World is dangerous and from today it will be dangerous some-more.

Yes, we agree with Avnery and we already named Trump the American Caligula.
Yes, history repeats itself – but please remember – now it is not horses – it is nukes!
