Still supporting Trump

Some might think that Trump is no longer a contender; with his sex-party youth (with hints but no more than hints of underaged girls) a friendship with convicted billionaire pedo Jeffrey Epstein; and his p*ssy-grabbing ways, Trump might be considered someone who cannot be supported anymore.

And it's true that these are all disturbing allegations. Also against him are the undisputed facts that many of his businesses have undergone bankruptcy leaving him richer but others poorer.

Unfortunately there are no good options, only a bad and a worse. Hillary would be the end of America. She has sold out to the enemies of the Western world. She follows the Democrat model of: if you cannot persuade the voters to support you get different voters. Far from "building a wall," she will seek to replace white, protestant America with third-world hoards. 

Any country is really just its people. The Germans in Syria would build BMWs and eat wurst; the Syrians in Germany will continue their sectarian wars and reduce the place to rubble. The America that conquered the West, put a man on the Moon, and invented the internet, is to be replaced with a population that will give Hillary eight years in the White House and leave crime-ridden scorched-earth behind. Hillary does not care - she works for the enemies of America; not for the Americans who elect her.

Trump is flawed, but instinctively right, and so outspoken there will be no secrets. If he gets lucky with an intern in the Oval Office, there will be no, "I did not have sex with that woman," cover-mouth, rub-nose, twitchy-mouth;  no, Trump would just brag about it. There will be no need for secret email servers because Trump tweets his innermost thoughts when bored at 3am. (Seriously, his day tweets are sensible policy comments by his staff, his night tweets are him, a mug of Horlicks and a cell phone.)

So Trump is both right, and harmless. Hillary is a traitor to her country, hated by everyone who ever worked with her, and willing to sacrifice the future of 330 million US citizens just so she can have a few short years at the top of the heap.

It has to be Trump.

Welcome to the Promised Land

You left your desert abode, in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Uzbekistan but what you always claim to be war-torn Syria and walked across Europe, kicking down the fences in your way, you and your fraternal co-religionists, looking for the Promised Land of free money, free housing and easy girls. You scorned Greece, Italy and France as you passed through them and refused to be turned away from the prize at the end of the rainbow. 

In the Jungle at Calais they told you: tear up your ID and claim to be only seventeen. Despite being in your thirties with wife and kids back home you  did just that and they put you on a bus to your Shangri-La... Lunar House, Croydon, England...

Lunar House, Croydon

They unload you in the parking lot....

The parking lot

Does it seem so nice now?

Don't worry, it's only a side trip to collect your paperwork; after that you will get lodged with a foster family and since you are only seventeen you will get put in a school and can sit next to underaged girls.

After a couple of years they will let you bring your wife and kids in legally; to meet the the new kids you have made here.

Look, a seventeen-year-old

Is this fellow seventeen, or younger even?

Seriously?! Because that is what he is claiming. Facial recognition software says he's 38. And David Davis MP says he needs a tooth x-ray before we let him in.

This blog says, why are we letting in "refugees" of any age? They are as safe in France as they would be in the UK, and France has already tacitly admitted them because they have lived in the "Jungle" at Calais for years. They should stay in France. Pity the poor foster parents, signed up to give a home to a 10-year-old, who will have these refugees lodged with them. And to maintain the fiction he is going to have to go to school and sit next to actual seventeen-year-olds. The teachers are not going to be amused.

And if they were really children it would actually be worse. French cities are awash with immigrant children, generally mid-teens, that the police won't touch, because if they ever did arrest one they would never be able to locate the parents and so have to find a home for him or her. So these kids roam the streets, robbing with impunity.

In taking any at all, Prime Minister Theresa May has scored a 'fail'. Maybe David Davis would have made a better leader.

Pot, kettle, black

When your husband is a serial rapist and you have spent the last 30 years covering up for him it is not a good idea to call someone out on some crude 'locker room' banter.

Just sayin'....

Deutsche Bank in numbers

Deutsche Bank, market cap $18 bn has been hit with a fine for $14 bn from US Justice Dept for its role in the 2007/8 subprime financial crisis. This poses an existential threat to the bank and its share price has dropped from around €30 a year ago to €10 now.

When German Chancellor Angela Merkel was asked if the German government would bail out the bank she mumbled something inaudible.

Her problem is twofold: first, she is already massively unpopular for letting in a million refugees, she cannot afford the extra opprobrium flinging taxpayer cash at a bank would bring, and second, she does not have that kind of money anyway. Deutsche Bank has assets equivalent to 50% of German GDP but liabilities four times the German economy! Germany simply cannot save the bank with money.

All this makes Deutsche a way bigger deal than Lehman Brothers and therefore far too big to fail. This is good news for the bank and its 100,000 employees worldwide. The other piece of good news is that the Germans have the Yanks over a financial barrel - a few years ago the Germans asked for the few hundred tons of gold they were storing in Fort Knox back and the Americans were like, "Oh crap!"

The Germans wisely downplayed the situation which now gives them leverage: expect the $14 bn fine to evaporate like morning dew - already they are saying maybe we only meant $5 bn and easy payment terms can surely be arranged, and the fine can be offset against tax and before you know it - all gone.

Then as confidence returns the market cap shoots up and the whole situation begins to look quite minor really. Disaster averted!
