WOW! What a day! Epstein, Trump, Pedophiles, Racists, Sexists – look at the company bigotry keeps!

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019

by: Marceline Donaldson

We keep trying to write about other things. What comes in to us in all of this however, is Trump, Trump all the time. When you think the man has reached bottom a trap door opens and he drops further down.

We have a few astrophysicist friends who helped develop a theology because they said astrophysics has gotten rid of the traditional theological concepts of heaven and hell for many religions and so they developed a theology to replace them. I do disagree. They may have developed a concept of heaven, but they have to consult with Donald Trump about hell – he has the monopoly on hell.

When I heard Trump’s racist comments about “the Squad” I have to admit I was a bit excited. I ran to the DVR to set it before I forgot. All of the Comedy Central Channels – Trevor Noah, Steven Colbert, Saturday Night Live, as many as I could think about. I didn’t want to miss a moment. Sure enough, while I haven’t seen all the recordings, Trevor Noah did not disappoint.

Something horrible must be coming down the pike against Trump. He has done an incredible job of distracting. It is hard to tell from what.

Epstein? Is someone coming out with a “made for television” interview of some of the women at the party whose guests included 26 women interested in being a part of a calendar ad/party plus Trump and Epstein.

Did the prosecutors in New York find a video in Epstein’s home of Trump raping a 13 year old? From the description in the Court Filings several years ago it was allegedly brutal.

Ladies and Gentlemen and readers of Bettina Network’s Blog- what follows was filed in Court and we may be hearing about this again soon:

“10. Defendant Trump initiated sexual contact with Plaintiff at four different parties. On the fourth and final sexual encounter with Defendant Trump, Defendant Trump tied Plaintiff to a bed, exposed himself to Plaintiff, and then proceeded to forcibly rape Plaintiff. During the course of this savage sexual attack, Plaintiff loudly pleaded with Defendant Trump to stop but with no effect. Defendant Trump responded to Plaintiff’s pleas by violently striking Plaintiff in the face with his open hand and screaming that he would do whatever he wanted. Exhs. A and B.”

This reminds me of something else I’ve seen – oh yes, – in a Bettina Network Blog https://www.bettina-network.com/blog/archives/3540

A woman, handcuffed to the bed, nude except for the high heels, etc. Doesn’t seem to be resisting, however, but modeling – was that for the Trump agency? Or another Agency? Or part of her models portfolio of pictures used as a resume? OMG! The First Lady of the United States – FLOTUS! No wonder Trump has trouble seeing the Congresswomen as positive, contributing, United States citizens elected to help run the country – that isn’t a position in which he sees women when his eyes and mind are clouded with all of the above about women.

Trump wants the four Congresswomen to go back to the broken and crime infested place from which they have come. I understand his comments. When the above is your life and reference point the four Congresswomen do come from a broken and crime infested place which must be changed – Michigan, New York, California, etc. We are all living in a broken and crime infested place and hopefully, these four Congresswomen will work with others to rid this country of such a man with his friends and co-workers with their foul language, insults, destruction of our Republic. A man who hears the question of a white female reporter and tells her to be quiet while he turns to and answers the same question from a white male reporter.

We have a broken system, a crime infested country, a man who introduced and commonly uses foul language in his press conferences, informal conversation, on television with children watching giving them the example of the president of the United States cursing with almost every other word in many places with a staff and workers around him who could have served Hitler – putting up Facebook pages which would have warmed the Fuhrer’s heart.

AND, the question we have about Trump is the same one we have about Epstein – where does his money come from? How did he become the billionaire he claims to be when he lost all of the $400 million left to him by his father. With Epstein owning a home and private plane in Saudi Arabia with an expired passport in another name but with his picture – does Trump has the same thing? Are we coming to a denouement with Trump fleeing to Saudi Arabia and/or Russia to oversee the building of Trump Towers given to him by his backers and supporters as he shatters this country?

Before he leaves, one of his last actions is to continue to separate African Americans from Jews. This happened when the Civil Rights Movement under King was becoming way too strong for many of the people and their followers now loyal to Trump. First they helped move the Jews from being Black and from being called the “N” word to becoming second class Whites! That was supposed to cause much upheaval in the Civil Rights Community. In some ways it did, but mostly Jews continued working with Blacks to bring about equality.

Trump is now trying a second time – having learned from his mentors – to separate minority groups from one another and is having a go at again trying to further separate Jews from African Americans from Immigrants of color.

The “Squad” has a lot of work to do going forward repairing the damage done by Trump, his friends and supporters.

Trump’s workers in the White House and beyond need to get themselves together because their future, at the moment, is with the homeless. They have put themselves into a position where another job is going to be hard to get and their reputations without Trump will be toast – toast spit on my all and picked up from trash cans because they are hungry and that is all they could find to keep themselves together.

From Nixon, traveling to Mississippi to introduce his run for the Presidency of the United States to Donald Trump who probably first introduced his run in Russia with his Saudi friends cheering him on. The Republican Party has come to the fruition of its racist agenda which it set forth to the public in Mississippi as a dog whistle – then a fog horn – and now enormous political troubles which threaten to destroy the Republican Party forever.

Did someone say Putin was backing Trump? Or has he used Trump to destroy the Republican Party as repayment for what he perceives they did to the USSR?

It doesn’t matter – the results are all the same.

So onward into the future – hopefully, it will be better than the recent past. At least I have a few DVR’s to watch after Trump’s mess-up this week. If they are anything like Trevor’s show it is going to be a few hours of side splitting laughter as I look at the fun making of what happens when Greed underpins and is the rock bottom base of a culture.

Bettina Network Lifestyle Community Members Speak!

Wednesday, December 26th, 2018

We are having a wonderful holiday.  Hope your holiday is full of love, family, friends and so much more.

Many members of Bettina Network Lifestyle Community sent us bits and pieces for Bettina Network Blog.  They also sent financial contributions to keep us going so we feel well fed both materially and in the soul with what looks like the success of Bettina Network, inc.

What follows are some of what we received to go in the blog.  It would be even better if all of you sent full blown articles on whatever topic you want information published – political, historical, scientific, literature-your short stories-poems- expositions.  Whatever you want to share.

Before we start sharing we would like to remind you that Bettina Network Oracle said some months ago that children would start dying – murdered by Donald J. Trump and his Administration.

Into this happy season comes the tragic and vicious news that Donald Trump – the illegitimate president of these United States has started killing children and the pace will accelerate.  Where do you stand and what are you going to do about this? Trump wants to scare the brown and black people of the world away from the borders of the United States.  What better way than to put those who arrive, after experiencing horrible trauma and an extremely difficult trip looking for asylum, into American Concentration Camps.  Moving them through a “cold box” to jeopardize any resistance they may still have left to illness, while exposing their children to sexual traffickers and so much more.

We get the news of their children’s death at the hands of a liar, thief, sexual assaulter, murderer, mafia don etc and there is no uprising in this country?  We were quiet through the first death we knew about – although you will soon hear of many more – from the past – not those dying today.  That is also a part of this holiday season.

Are you going to take the road of Germans – the middle class Germans – who kept silent, went about their daily lives as though Jews were not being slaughtered and turned into slaves by Hitler or are you going to make sure the same thing does not happen in these United States?  It was the ordinary citizen who allowed Hitler to rise and wreck his evil.  Not willing to jeopardize their middle class economic position to take a stand against the evil which stared them in the face.  As long as it wasn’t one of their family?

From the Bettina Network Lifestyle Community:

  1. ” Is one of the reasons Trump is so enamored of Russia and Putin the fact that Russia is a white country?  And one of the few such places left in the world?  Is that what makes him drawn to the particular fascist dictators he shows a complete attraction to?”
  2. “Donald J. Trump sent out an order to withdraw United States troops from Syria. He did that while on the telephone with Erdogan or shortly thereafter.  Erdogan’s first choice was that Trump send Methullah Gulen to the Turkish prison island. – so he could be imprisoned and possibly killed there? Trump did everything he could to comply, but his power as president did not extend to his being able to do that – although he did try.  We heard the figure of $15 million tossed around as payment for the deed.  Trump could and did comply with Erdogan’s second choice – to withdraw U. S. troops from Syria.  Why would he allow himself to be complicit in this cover-up? Trump was clearly looking for some way to distract the world from Mohammed bin Salam’s involvement in the brutal and vicious killing of Khashoggi and to begin the process of putting Saudi Arabia on a positive footing with the world as he managed to wipe the story out of the media.  To do that he needed Erdogan to stop telling the media about the details of the killing and to not provide the proof the rest of us needed to bring some kind of justice for the killing.  This pulling the U. S. troops out of Syria solved that, we have not heard one word from Erdogan about the tapes, the killing nor anymore details about what he and his knows about what happened.  That has not been brought into the world’s view for action. Trump’s indebtedness to Saudi Arabia and his beholdeness to MbS was partially satisfied.”
  3. “Trump is a man who does not think!  He is not dumb, stupid nor all of those negative adjectives.  He is a man who, instead of thinking and feeling has substituted  manipulation, shrewdness, insults to and intimidation of others in his path – particularly those he has to address as President of the United States.  The worst I have seen of anyone was the performance Donald Trump made in front of the rally after the hearing on the Brett Kavanaugh/Christine Blasey Ford sexual assault allegations which moved his people to vote for Kavanaugh.  Was that because they did not believe Blasey Ford?  Or was that because of the fear such a performance raised in them of Trump doing the same thing to them and their political and public destruction imminently following.  What was tragic was the fact that Trump’s performance did not destroy Trump, it scared his people into falling into line and doing his bidding. That speaks volumes for the ethics, morals, character of those in politics and those supporting them in these United States.  Truthfulness, integrity, honor, – none of those things apply anymore.  Manipulation to gain power and control over to do the kind of scumbag actions which have been carried out by this president are what holds the day.  The United States Government has become a criminal mafia headed by the mafia “Don” – Donald J. Trump.  In fact, I am beginning to think the mafia, as we have known mafias, is several steps above Trump in the way it operates.”
  4. “The elegance, thoughtfulness, grace, compassion of the Obama Administration has been replaced by the cruelty, viciousness, untruthfulness, cheating and sexual abuse by almost all those in this current administration.  Every time someone is appointed, one of the first scandals that comes out is of that persons past scandalous involvement in the sexual assault, abuse, denigration of women – white, black, pink, green, purple women.”
  5. “I am constantly stunned at the similarities between Trump and Hitler. Trump folds his arms in front of himself when seriously speaking around the table – so did Hitler.  Hitlers messiah complex was strong and evil – so is Trump’s.  It has pushed Trump to come out with his need for absolute control – he showed that in his call to take troops out of Syria without consulting anyone.  His Messiah Complex is right at the peak of being the destruction of Western Civilization.  Hitler blamed the Communists  for everything – Trump blames the Democrats whether it is true or not and he pushes that song with his Republican Congress following his lead.”
  6. “I know many of us make parallels to Donald Trump and Adolph Hitler.  I would like to remind all of us, including Donald and Melanie Trump that Hitler ended in a fulthy bunker alone except for the woman who lived through him, got her identity from him as well as her self-worth and called it love.  This was the face of evil.  The United States is becoming the country which has supplanted that history by attempting to recreate it.  Hitler ended his reign by committing suicide.  Before he did, however, he was manic about his need to kill as many Jews as quickly as possible.  The United States’ killing spree has just begun.  Are there those who are going to stop this madness or are we going to let our passive bigotry lead us into a pretense to be helpless in the face of it and let it go on until we have reached the point where White Supremacy is no longer threatened by the Black and Brown peoples of the world.”

Porn Star? – Brother Adulterers?

Friday, June 8th, 2018

We could not stay silent about Rudi Giuliani’s comments which he made from Israel about the “classy women” Trump married as opposed to the horrible porn star claiming “falsely” according to Giuliani, that she had an affair with Donald Trump.

Lets take a look at history.  Here is the “Classy Woman” Trump married.  His Wife – Melanie!

The traditional photo of a nude woman on a bear rug is acted out here.  A porn star? Methinks this was done for free and to catch ‘the Donald”.  Lessons acted out in public to show young women how to reach the kind of success women should strive for to spend their lives ‘under’ a man – catering to his every wish and doing his commands so you also can wear designer original clothes, fly on private jets around the world and more.  Your own business giving you some kind of independence which porn stars have?  Not likely!  Independence is not a part of this – note the handcuffs as she is handcuffed to the bed – how about that for symbolism Mr. Giuliani. . These are the lessons Melania Trump brings to young women and young men. This was certainly her way to success and even today, dressed in more clothes which cost a small fortune, her message is – you are an appendage to “your man” and you live your life through him and his life, never on your own standing on your own two feet. Independence is not in the cards.

 

Still lying on that bear rug!  These are the values to pass on to your children? Use your body in this way to get your man who will take care of you so you won’t have to go out into the world and take care of yourself. Melania talked about her interest in fashion. We know several models, none of whom earned their money using their bodies in this way! It did help her get a rich husband, however, a husband who puts no value on women except to satisfy his ego and prurient needs.

Supporting her husbands’ support for the NRA? Showing how women can give their support to the NRA for their husbands benefit?

Half naked with a box full of jewels on a plane represents what kind of moral value? Selling one’s body?  This must be what Rudi Giuliani calls “classy woman” – but is she selling her body or her jewelry?

Why does Giuliani have the gravitas to represent Donald Trump?  Because they are brother adulterers and they treat women in the same very degrading way.  Wasn’t it Rudi Giuliani who was out on the steps of Gracie Mansion calling a press conference with his “mistress” – who apparently then was his press person – telling the press he was divorcing his wife.  Where was his wife?  In the kitchen of the same Gracie Mansion with his son making breakfast for her family.  Did she know about his press conference or the coming divorce?  No!  When did she find out – when a press person called her to get a comment from her on the then mayor’s press conference.  Until that point she knew nothing about her husband divorcing her.  How kind!  How considerate!  How like Donald Trump!

With some 19 plus women accusing Donald Trump of sexual abuse and worse, including rape, it is time for this country to deal with the truth of who their leaders really are and act accordingly.  Also take a look at our “leaders” and “aspiring leaders” and see where their moral compass is pointing – it seems to us they are willing to do anything to achieve what this Trump administration calls success.  Take a look at EPA Pruitt – complimented by Trump on the fine job he is doing.  On his way to becoming an American Oligarch by raping the United States of America.

Donald Trump’s base includes so called Evangelical Christians!  Where is your Christianity when these are the people you are supporting to lead your country?  Where is your Christ?  Certainly not among the likes of these – or are your sins so close to theirs you must support their deviances from Christian values to be able to live with yourselves?  Trash those who do good – Hold up those who lie, cheat, steal, commit adultery, abuse women and worse.

Support those leading this country straight to hell!

A Current Example of Bullying – Trump and Macron!

Thursday, April 26th, 2018

Emmanuel and Brigitte Macron are back in France and have left the American public with lots to talk about and even more to think through.

President Trump has a way of bullying those who arrive as “important guests” both domestic and foreign from the moment he holds out his hand to shake theirs.  The only person on whom he did not use this bullying handshake was Vladimir Putin.  Trump has a bullying handshake where he makes the person on the other side wince as he pulls their arm and then the rest of their body towards him with one of the most bullying handshakes I have ever seen.

Emmanuel Macron was no exception.  Macron, however, has made it his mission not be bullied by this handshake nor to be passive in an attitude of acceptance with a “this too shall pass” sub-text.  He has taken on Trump’s handshake and given back which, during this visit,  resulted in an amazing display.

The media and many others took it as a “bromance”.  To say they missed the point is to say they exist in a society which accepts and does its best to ignore and deny sexual abuse in its many forms.  That is exactly what we saw Emmanuel Macron put through during his trip to these United States.

President Macron, however, gave the country an exquisite example of how to handle such a bullying.  Bullying of all kind will be with us forever if we don’t start calling it what it is when we see someone being bullied instead of finding other ways to describe what we know is an act of unashamed bullying.  That could have been an example of a woman being abused and I think the media would have talked about a budding romance instead of stepping in to stop the atrocity – which is what we saw acted out before the world.

Trump’s initial handshake was returned in kind and Trump’s bullying was on high display as he responded to the need to push Macron down to puff himself up – in front of the world.  I hope others have the guts and insight to come forward to condemn the display President Trump put on as his ego kept pushing him to uglier heights.  Not even children would have participated in that dandruff act.

Not to be deterred by how ugly he was appearing to all, Mr. Trump continued trying to oppress and subjugate President Macron and Macron’s response should be in a book on bullying as one person’s way of brilliantly handling an extremely distressful and continuous almost non-stop display of oppression and bullying.  Instead of seeing and commenting on what was actually happening, the media continued to claim – “they must like each other.”

Beginning with the handshake, Trump practically bowled Macron over as he tried to pull him towards himself.  Macron responded by maintaining and giving back to Trump what he got from the handshake and responding and making it about the ‘French Kiss” by putting his arm around Trump and kissing him on both cheeks.  Since it seems possible that Trump goes both ways, President Macron’s attempts didn’t land the way he intended.

and on and on it went.

Clearly, Macron’s response – his coup de grace – was put forward during his speech to the American Congress during which Macron laid out his policies and ideas including almost all of Trump’s policy stances and the beliefs Trump has made a part of his ‘reign’ as president.   President Emmanuel Macron’s stances were totally opposite to Donald Trump’s.  In giving that speech, President Macron did not wince, pull back, chance his beliefs, etc.  He was forthright, forthcoming and clear and he had the American Congress with him – showing where they really stood when any possible attempts at blackmail, bullying, pushing were removed and one could respond as one felt.

Clearly, Melanie Trump showed she was truly the wife and soul mate of Donald Trump when she appeared in the white suit with hat which at one point moved Brigitte Macron out of the picture.  When she appeared with “the Don” it was clear the arrogance and posturing of one was totally acceptable and generated pride in the other.  They appeared in a strong statement which looked totally out of place for the company, the situation, the reflection of herself as hostess.  She was clearly uncaring about Brigitte Macron and was only out to outshine and put forth her worth – which she apparently holds as her body and what she puts on it. The sexist male – the misogynist male has a female counterpart whose chief value is invested in how she looks.  It was an outsized look and had a very hard edge which did not show as the hostess, but as the guest attempting to outshine all the other guests.

In his speech to Congress, President Macron came across as human, compassionate and seriously working to make this a better world for the least of these.  His wife, Brigitte, looked like a caring, compassionate and serious person who was working with her husband and while her dress was quite elegant, it was also very human.  She was not trying to outshine, outdo, send out an image to puff herself up or any of that.  She was dressed in a lovely “human’ way.  The contrast was astounding.

As I looked at all of that my mind brought me back to Barbara Bush’s funeral and life.  Her funeral, for me, was a brief moment of public respite. At the end, she gave us a time to reflect, to think, to move away from the upheaval – panic – intensity of nothingness – the passionate hiding of something unsavory.  There was no name calling; no trying to upstage and outshine; no arrogance; no posturing; just people coming to witness to the life of someone they knew either as a close friend or in her capacity as mother, wife, First Lady, volunteer, helper to those in need, etc.  Somehow, I could not see Melanie Trump ever being such a lovely, humble person who knew who she was and presented herself not as an artificial model using her body to sell whatever it was she was selling.  The hat ruined the suit and showed a person with a very hard edge who was anything but a warm, caring human being.  I have yet to see any of those qualities in either Melanie or Donald Trump and that white hat and suit emphasized the arrogance, artificiality and lying image of the couple.  What is a ‘lying image”?  Presenting oneself as an image projecting not who you are but projecting that which one needs to show to make public one’s concept of power and control and that ‘better than’ attitude so constantly projected by the Kushner/Trump family.

A Trump Brothel! Arguments against allowing Immigration into the United States!

Friday, January 12th, 2018

by:  Marceline Donaldson

When one looks at minority groups, the most mystifying problem turns into a question.  Why are so many women against feminism and equal rights for women?  Why are so many African Americans against other African Americans putting the entire group down?  Why are so many LGBT people against their own making the loudest, ugliest and longest “jokes”.  Maybe, just maybe Donald Trump has given us the answer.

Trump has been anti-immigrant for a very long time.  He ran for office on an anti-immigrant platform.

BUT, Trump comes from an immigrant family and not one that has deep ties into the United States.  Trump’s immigrant family recently came to this country.  His current wife – Melania arrives only after she became an adult and from an Eastern European country.  She is first generation immigrant.  Trump’s grandfather came when he was about 16 years old, no education, no money, no family – just here to make his fortune where it was believed that the streets were paved with gold.

And so, it becomes rather obvious that the Trump family has seen through the lens of their own family what happens when you let people immigrate to the United States.  Given their extreme racism, it is clear the conclusions this family would draw.  They are conclusions that say – if our family made contributions to these United States which have brought this country down low instead of raising it up high then goodness, what will “they”  – those others do if allowed into these United States.

What have the immigrants in the Trump family contributed since they immigrated to the United States:

Let’s start with the earliest Trump into these United States.  Grandfather Trump.

He started the rest of the males in the family on the construction/hotel/mafiaconnected/casino  road they have taken.  He built and ran a hotel.  And so the rest of the generations of his family followed suit.  His hotel was rumored to also be a brothel.  A rumor so strong it still exists to this day.  So the Trump family of immigrants started their fortune probably tied in some way to whatever mafia existed in those days in Grandfather Trump’s location.

And then comes the father of Donald Trump, who continues in the family business by continuing the construction work.  Question is, did he also continue the shady side to be able to fund his construction?  Did the money invested have mafia ties – maybe conditioned upon the other side of the Trump family business like Grandfather Trump’s is rumored to be?

We know the father of Donald Trump contributed to the continuation of the racism in this country which others were working mightily to eliminate because, among other things and  of all people – Richard Nixon and his administration sued the Trump’s for racism because they would not allow African Americans and probably other minorities to rent in their buildings.  Barely out of the old country – lying about which country they came from because of the negative connotation their German ancestry would have brought onto them at that point in history – they claimed to be from Switzerland.  So they were very conscious of what they were doing; how they were violating the laws and constitution of these United States, but continued and did their best to cast themselves in the best light possible, given their ‘immigrant’ background. And the child Donald Trump learned his lying at his father’s knee.

Why did they move away from their German background?  That was the time of Hitler’s Germany, after all.  The man who Trump seems to be most copying as he moves about his presidency.  In its early stages he clearly is moving in the direction Hitler moved in after he became head of Germany.  Quickly changing the judiciary so it grovels in front of him instead of doing the job of following the Constitution of the United States and that will worsen as he continues very quickly to make those changes – and Trump, the son, is very aware of that.

Instead of getting rid of the Jews,a la Hitler,  who were succeeding and moving out of the Jewish Ghettos to which they had been consigned for quite a long time – Trump, the son,  is doing his best to get rid of non-whites and non-‘Christians’ as he moves about his purge of these United States and sees the gains minorities have made in this country.   However, he has not gotten over the family’s anti-Semitism because we see it peeping out and becoming a deluge as Trump shows his partiality to Zionism and is clearly trying to bring Israel into being as a Christian country.  A dream of the KKK, White Supremacist and especially the ‘Christian’ evangelists.  By the time he finishes with his divisiveness in Israel – well, I really don’t need to spell that out.

the father of Donald Trump saw a like mind and belief with groups in this country like the KKK and that is where he gravitated.  When the huge march on Washington, down the Washington Mall of the klan in their white sheets and pointy hats happened way back when, the father of Donald Trump was one of the group he was one arrested, but he apparently not before he had his moment of glory expressing his beliefs publicly.

Donald Trump showed how closely he held those beliefs when he had his followers re-enact “Krystal Nacht” in Charlottesville in the not so distant past and came out publicly to make sure everyone knew this was not being done against him, but with his blessings.  His father would have been proud.

The Trump’s under Father Trump must have been violating the Constitution big time when it is Nixon who hauls them into court for violating the anti-racism housing laws.

And then comes the “Don”.  Donald Trump, who has been accused of everything from being a mafia ‘don’ or at the very least a part of and blessed by the mafia (although at this point one would think that at least the Italian mafia would be a bit too American to have anything to do with the “Don”, but nevertheless…) to treason to being a pathological liar, to being one who assaults women and brags about it, to being someone who launders for the mafia – or is it for the Oligarch’s who seem to have made the traditional mafia second class citizens in their reach …and on and on goes the list.

This is the president of the United States.  This is someone from a recent immigrant family. But this is a white immigrant family.  Maybe Donald Trump has it wrong.  His own involvement has probably clouded his judgment, he should be closing the borders to those from “white” countries who seem to be doing most damage to these United States.  Hmmmm!  Maybe I should scratch that out – is that racist?  Or can such a statement be called racist.

And lets not forget his current wife, Melanie who has left a permanent image for young girls and women to follow of posing nude in nothing but handcuffs hooked to bed posts and high heel shoes along with being practically nude in many outfits on an airplane to posing next to an airplane, which we assume is a Trump plane in black boots and very little else.  Being the First Lady has never had such ugly images connected to the job and they will all be left for posterity.  The young girls in these United States now have a First Lady role model to imitate to follow who has shown them how to go from immigrant with very little money to millionaires in her own right, married to a claimed billionaire, and being lauded as First Lady of these United States with a wardrobe which includes a $54,000 coat while others starve and suffer from no shelter in below zero cold on the street

With that kind of family I am not surprised that Donald Trump is so anti-immigrant.  If this is what his immigrant family has ‘achieved’ since it arrived on these shores goodness knows what others will do to continue to drag down these United States.  He can’t let that happen – he must act.

No United States President has ever been rejected as a state visitor to England – what used to be a close ally.  Trump has changed all of that and had to cancel his state visit to England – we assume because he was advised that he was not welcome there.

So hopefully, you now understand why Trump is so anti-immigrant.  I am sure he is only trying to protect these United States from those he thinks will bring the kind of harm he and his family have brought to these United States and wants to do whatever he can do to prevent such from happening. I am sure you also know why he has zeroed in on non-white immigrants.  If white  Immigrants can bring down the worst judgments on other immigrants, no matter which country they have come from what will the non-white  immigrants do.  Trump can’t let that stand or take that chance.  He has, after all, this first hand experience.

And now you have the answer to all of it – most specifically, why would a fairly recent immigrant to these United States be so anti-immigrant in his policies when he gets the chance to make some.

Melania Trump’s Convention Speech

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

An amazing speech!  It had nothing to do with anything except a hollywood script writer planning a movie of pure fiction.

We watched her come on stage and the greeting by her husband was anything but warm.  It looked like – don’t touch me, I am made up and dressed and don’t want you to mess me up.  The rest of the evening and speech followed that pattern.

What most amazed us were some of the things she said with a somewhat straight face.  For example:  She emphasized the need to “pass those lessons on to the many generations to follow, because we want our children in this nation to know that the only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams and the willingness to work for them.”

We wondered if her life after she left Communist Slovenia and an upbringing which had nothing to do with a democratic election where you supposedly run on your achievements, ability to accomplish, and more, was an example of what we want to pass down to our children as ‘our’ morals and values. Certainly, the way she ‘achieved’ her goals says more about her and the man she married than anything else.  It sets their moral values right up front and center for all to see.

She talked about her mother’s elegance instilling in her a love for fashion, etc.  During the time she was on her own and had to make her own way, this is how she did it – acting out her morals and values and love for ‘fashion’.  That is not how the fashion models we know live their lives and make their money.  She was Donald Trump’s ‘hostess’ on his plane before they married.  We hear it took her all of two years, after leaving Slovenia to become a billionaire’s mistress, girl friend, fiancé.  We don’t know what to call that relationship before their marriage.  It was certainly a time of Donald Trump exploiting a woman’s body and the woman allowing him to do that because her value of herself is on her body.  An example for our daughters’ to follow?

Half naked with a box full of jewels on a plane represents what kind of moral value? Selling one's body?

Half naked with a box full of jewels on a plane represents what kind of moral value? Selling one’s body and showing the results of that sale?

 

Supporting your husband and his need to get support from the NRA?  Passing these values on to our children?  Whatever values her parents gave her – when she had to make it on her own she apparently made it by using her body.  – and was it for sale to the highest bidder?  And once that happened she could become the volunteer, the person giving to others, working for the needy because that supported her husbands goals and put the family in a better light?  Seems to us that those values of her husband have been passed on to his children – especially with a son who, rumor has it, only dated models and in the end married one?  Is that teaching your children to value people because of their work, accomplishments, because they are human? Or is that valuing women for what their bodies can do for you?  Doesn’t bode well for women’s issues.  If her husband is elected president, she would be the first First Lady who earned her kept so blatantly using her body.

 

Supporting her husbands' support for the NRA? Showing how women can give their support to the NRA for their husbands benefit?

When a campaign has stolen the theme of a previous campaign and was not able to come up with its own campaign theme - is that how he will be President of the United States? Nothing will be sacred. Whatever Trump needs, he will take from whoever, wherever, for whatever reason he needs to take from others? Like the way his campaign has taken the lives of Blacks by stirring up old prejudices and giving strength to groups who are extreme racists? And extreme religious bigots? Did his daughter marrying an Orthodox Jew account for his spreading such hatred around the country in his campaign speeches and in other ways for Muslims? Is he using divide and conquer to become president? Use the old animosities and pit one group against another. So far he has been able to widen the gap between White and Black; Jew and Muslim; and who knows what groups are next as fodder for his power grab?

These are the values to pass on to your children? Use your body to get what you want? Melania talked about her interest in fashion. We know several models, none of whom earned their money using their bodies in this way! It did help her get a rich husband, however, who puts no value on women except to satisfy his ego and prurient needs.

The traditional photo of a nude woman on a bear rug is acted out here and destroys everything woman - trying to reach equality in this system based on their brains, accomplishments, etc. instead of the old standard of their body and how they are willing to use their bodies to succeed. These are the lessons Melania Trump brings to young women and young men. This was certainly her way to success and even today, dressed in more clothes which cost a small fortune, her message is - you are an appendage to "your man" and you live your life through him and his life, never on your own standing on your own two feet. Independence is not in the cards.

I can’t believe the Republican Party has stooped so low.  It certainly gives a different meaning to their fight against abortion and all their other fights against the equality for women.  This will bring the country back pre-1950’s.  This is how women advertise who are looking to earn a living in prostitution.  If they make it big and find that wealthy male to support them – fine.  If not, they will be prostitutes for life.

These photos came from GQ magazine.  We put their entire article on Facebook if you are interested in their narrative which went along with the pictures they published.  We found more, but these, we felt, gets the message across.  Know who you are voting for.  You can excuse anything if you want power badly enough.  But don’t you think a little honesty, morals, looking at the choices a person makes when they are on their own tells more than anything else about their morals?  It certainly says a lot about Donald Trump and what he is interested in from a woman.

I am sure there were none of the Religious Right in the audience at the Republican Convention.  Having seen years of what they are about this would be the ultimate hypocrisy.  An act equivalent to Pontius Pilate’s washing his hands in that bowl.  If there were members of the Religious Right on the floor and out in the country supporting this Trump campaign, they have gone further than Pontius Pilate did because they have not only agreed to turn Hillary Clinton (a devout Christian all of her life – working for justice, equality and for all of us) over to the most scurrilous comments and ugliest campaign in United States history, because they have agreed to help in that effort and are giving their time and money to achieve that goal.  At least Pontius Pilate only washed his hands in that bowl and and then he walked away.
