The miniseries stars Jeff Daniels as Comey and Brendan Gleeson as President Donald Trump, the spitting image of ‘The Donald’. The two-part miniseries was aired on September 27 and 28 2020 and at times I felt I was again in this nightmare. What is disturbing is the documentation of Trump’s interactions with the Russians! After watching this, how can any sane person vote for Trump? However, pundits are now expecting another Trump run for the White House so, we may not have seen the last of Trump.
For a moment, imagine a 2nd term for Trump. Can’t imagine, let me help. Posted below is Victor Davis Hanson on “The Case For Trump”. There, we now have a challenge – a topic for the FCHS Debate In The Park.
Moving back to Taiwan is a possibility for Fannie and me, living 100 miles from the PRC’s President Xi might be preferable – just how dangerous is China?
I am watching this now and trying to find my place in the timeline being reported on. I am listening and watching to see how I can make a contribution, after all, I lived 17 years in greater China. I am sensing they are not seeing this history clearly or correctly. Their analysis of what motivates China is off. Are these guys using the correct lens to view the deep nature of PRC leaders, using words like “Xi crushed Hong Kong” is seeing this from the western perspective? Asking, “Is this strange ideology sustainable?” is strangely strange itself! How is Xi’s ideology strange?

Let us see if we can develop a better ‘understanding of the rise of China‘. Economist Martin Jacques asks: “How do we in the West make sense of China and its phenomenal rise?” The author of When China Rules the World examines why the West often puzzles over the growing power of the Chinese economy and offers three building blocks for understanding what China is and will become. Let us do a deep dive into Chinese Thinking! Takes notes on this dive, Coach Barney is watching over our shoulders.
On August 12, 2016, I heard that Donald Trump would be meeting with RNC leaders to discuss the disorder he is causing in his run to be President. So, I decided early in the morning to ask the I Ching about this meeting, the question to the I Ching was, What about Donald Trump’s situation? I received Hexagram 4. Mêng / Youthful Folly with changing lines in the 4 and 5th lines resulting in Hexagram 6. Sung / Conflict. These hexagrams are very accurate and a first reading suggests that an attempt to rein Trump in is going to be difficult – it does not look likely. The full response can be read at I Ching on Trump. We now have a new question for the I Ching – What about Trump’s pending decision to run again for The Presidency? I will return…
