Trump’s Tax Returns

Last Monday, in the first U.S. presidential, televised debate between Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump, Clinton hammered away at Trump on his refusal to publicly reveal his income tax returns of recent years.

The first debate of three debates between Democratic nominee for U.S. president, Hilary Clinton, and the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, was held three days ago. So, the big question is, who won?

Most analysts and at least the print media say Clinton won, but so far what I've seen is that the public thinks it was about a tie. Later polls will tell more. I … [Read more...]

Congress Rejects Obama’s Veto of Justice Against Terrorism Act

Yesterday, the U.S. Congress overwhelmingly voted against President Barak Obama's veto of their Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA). The vote was amazing: 97 to 1 in the Senate and 348 to 77 in the House. Has Congress ever so soundly rejected a presidential veto?This act is now law.

Trump’s Birtherism Backfires

Democratic U.S. President Barak Obama has always claimed that he was born in Hawaii and thus is qualified as a natural-born U.S. citizen to be its president. But non-politician and billionaire businessman Donald Trump surged to political prominence, and then gained the Republican nomination for U.S. president this summer, largely because he constantly alleged that Obama was born elsewhere and thus should produce his birth certificate to prove his legitimacy as president. President Obama let too … [Read more...]

Trump Choked Tonight

In this year's campaign for the U.S. presidency, Republican nominee Donald Trump has constantly boasted about his ability to compete everywhere in the business world, on the golf course, and now in this presidential run even though he has no political experience whatsoever--zero. But he turned out to be sort of a zero tonight, a big bag of wind in the first of three scheduled debates with the Democratic nominee--former First Lady, New York Senator, and Secretary of State, Hilary … [Read more...]

This Week Is the 50th Anniversary of “Star Trek”

Next Thursday will be the 50th anniversary of the wildly popular Star Trek. For over ten years, I never hardly paid any attention to it. Then I met its creator, Gene Roddenberry. We sat together on an airplane having a very stimulating conversation, just the two of us, for nearly an hour about the possibility of aliens in space and if they have visited earth. We discussed if there are angels. More importantly, is there a God who made the universe? I posted about this experience on October 8, … [Read more...]
