Why is alt-right growing globally?

 

Here in GodZone we have a new Trump wannabee  https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/110099964/former-nz-rugby-boss-david-moffett-now-tackling-populist-politics

 

In a world where humanity has such a high capability, high level of knowledge, but alt-right is growing in some countries. Lack of empathy, denial of scientifically proven climate change, and supporting inequality

So Trump says he will deliver the state of the nation speech after all. Pelosi just said she wont allow it. There is a resolution, so she will block it, unless the Govt is opened.

 

 

 

Its the afternoon of the 23rd over there, he has not spoken to Pelosi since the 9th

TRUMP OFFERS PELOSI $130,000 TO KEEP QUIET

 

 

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In an indication that he has reached his breaking point with the Speaker of the House, Donald J. Trump is offering a hundred and thirty thousand dollars to keep Nancy Pelosi quiet, White House aides confirmed on Thursday.

 

According to those aides, Trump floated the idea of a six-figure payment to silence Pelosi during a closed-door meeting on Wednesday night, in which he asserted that he had done “a million of these deals.”

 

Trump’s effort to mute Pelosi faces a number of obstacles, however, including the fact that the person who has crafted such agreements for Trump in the past, Michael Cohen, is not available to perform such a service now.

 

Additionally, any agreement to silence Pelosi could face constitutional hurdles, since one of Pelosi’s principal duties as Speaker is to speak.

 

At the Capitol, Pelosi said that she would reject Trump’s proposed payment and added that she would offer him no money whatsoever to prevent him from delivering this year’s State of the Union address.

 

“I am asking for an hour of silence from Donald Trump, and you can’t put a price tag on that,” she said.





Any fool can make money, but it takes a special person to earn the respect of respectable people.

If there was a single rational answer to that question, there'd be a single rational solution.

I blame it on the discontinuation of corporal punishment :-)

Pelosi had better not cave in.  Presidential approval polls are showing that Trump's getting more blame for this than the Democrats.

 

Apparently the amount of money the shutdown has cost so far is over US$6 billion - more than what Trump wanted for his wall - a monument to stupidity.

There is no simple answer to the rise of the right, but I think it has to do with frustration and a sense of disenfranchisement, together with social media. Thanks to Twitter and Facebook (not to mention Fox), even the most backward incel has a voice.

MSNBC TO AIR OBAMA’S 2004 CONVENTION SPEECH DURING TRUMP’S ADDRESS TO NATION

 

 

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—MSNBC has declared that if Donald Trump’s State Of The Union speech goes ahead,  it will instead air Barack Obama’s keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, network officials have confirmed.

 

Harland Dorrinson, an MSNBC spokesperson, said that the network elected to air the Obama speech “in order to best serve our audience.”

 

“Based on the data gathered by our research department, the number of MSNBC viewers who were planning to watch the Trump speech was approximately zero,” Dorrinson said. “This seemed like a better way to go.”

 

Since the Obama speech has a running time of only sixteen minutes, MSNBC plans to air it “over and over” until Trump has finished talking, Dorrinson said. “We’ll air it all night if we have to,” he said.

 

The network spokesperson said that the White House had contacted MSNBC to argue that the network could not preëmpt a national address by Trump. “We had three words for them,” he said. “Yes, we can.”

The Washington Post - ‘Knock them in the teeth.’ How Trump turns crises into leverage.

 

January 22 at 6:38 PM

 

 

The 800,000 federal workers who are expected to miss their second paycheck in the coming days are the most extreme example yet of a negotiating tactic President Trump has used repeatedly since taking office.

 

He creates - or threatens to create - a calamity, and then insists he will address the problem only if his adversary capitulates to a separate demand.

 

Trump has described this approach as creating leverage and negotiating, but Democrats and other opponents have said it amounts to “hostage taking.”

 

“It’s sort of like bartering with stolen goods,” Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday. ...
