(Humor Poem) June 14th Habitual Liars Day

June 14th Habitual Liars Day

Donald Trumps Birthday 

We like to celebrate but for what we seldom care

Celebrations are for memories of good times past

Birthdays of our families or for those of which we care

Holidays are days we hope we can stay away from work

Party till we drop then wake up and do it all over again

 

Do we ever care why a day was set aside to weep or pray

Solemn Bugle Rings Flags half staff does it mean anything

Christmas or Easter why should anyone ever think of why

Every Holiday we create is just the economies way to spin

Yet Turkey and Football bring a family together once a year

 

Presidents Day used to be a Holiday but now days we don’t

Some great people after their death in honor are given a day

All Saints or no Saints is good enough reason to tip a glass

Independence is a real reason to let the fireworks light the sky

June 14th celebrate the biggest habitual liar who sleazed into life

GOP Congressman Bashes Trump For Praising Kim Jong Un On Memorial Day

(TRUMP PRAISES MASS MURDERER KIM JONG UN ON MEMORIAL DAY!)

(The Idiot Coward in Chief strikes again)(oped: oldpoet56)

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger (IL) on Sunday called out President Donald Trump for bashing former Vice President Joe Biden and praising North Korean “dictator” Kim Jong Un on Memorial Day weekend.

Trump touted his relationship with Kim Jong Un and took aim at Biden, who officially announced his 2020 presidential bid as a Democrat last month, in a tweet while in Japan on a state visit this weekend. “North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me,” the president tweeted on Saturday. “I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me, & also smiled when he called Swampman Joe Biden a low IQ individual, & worse. Perhaps that’s sending me a signal?”

The president initially misspelled Biden’s name in a former version of the tweet that has since been deleted.

In response, Kinzinger, an Air Force veteran who served twice in Iraq, called the president’s comments “just plain wrong” in a tweet on Sunday. “It’s Memorial Day Weekend and you’re taking a shot at Biden while praising a dictator. This is just plain wrong,” the GOP congressman wrote, alongside a quoted retweet of the president’s statement.

@RepKinzinger

It’s Memorial Day Weekend and you’re taking a shot at Biden while praising a dictator. This is just plain wrong.

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me. I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me, & also smiled when he called Swampman Joe Biden a low IQ individual, & worse. Perhaps that’s sending me a signal?

7,545 people are talking about this

Andrew Bates, director of rapid response for Biden’s 2020 campaign, fired back at Trump shortly after the president’s tweet was shared. “Given Vice President Biden’s record of standing up for American values and interests, it’s no surprise that North Korea would prefer that Donald Trump remain in the White House,” he said.

The president’s comments come as he arrived in Tokyo, Japan on Saturday with first lady Melania Trump to hold talks with the country’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and meet the new emperor, Naruhito.

North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency last week published commentary labelling Biden a “snob lacking even the most basic qualities of a human being, much less a politician.” The North Korean propaganda outlet also echoed Trump’s frequent description of Biden as a “low-IQ individual,” by referring to the Democratic presidential candidate as “an idiot with a low IQ.”

The nation’s criticisms of Biden came after the former Vice President condemned Trump’s friendly relationship with Kim Jong Un and Russian President Vladimir Putin during a campaign event. “Are we a nation that embraces dictators and tyrants like Putin and Kim Jong Un?” Biden said.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders admitted that the Trump administration and Pyongyang both hold similar feelings about Biden during an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday Morning.

“I think [Trump and Kim Jong Un] agree in their assessment of former Vice President Joe Biden,” she said during a discussion with host Chuck Todd. “The president doesn’t need somebody else to give him an assessment of Joe Biden. He’s given his own assessment a number of times. I think you’ve seen it. I’m sure you’ve covered it on your program. The president watched him and his administration with President Obama fail for eight years.”

For At Least 70+ Years Chinese Women Who Were Forced To Be Japanese Soldiers Whores (Comfort Women) Want An Apology From Japan

(THIS ARTICLE IS COURTESY OF THE SHANGHAI DAILY NEWS)

FOR the past 70 years, Liu Fenghai, 89, has had her sleep interrupted countless times by the same nightmare.

“I dreamed about Japanese soldiers with sabers on their backs hunting me like an animal,” Liu, from north Shanxi Province, said.

The tragedy is that this is no dream.

Liu was sexually assaulted when she was just 16 and her limp, lifeless body left for dead in a ravine by Imperial Japanese Army soldiers. She managed to summon what was left of her energy and crawled back home. The ordeal left her bed bound and unable to walk for over a month.

Today is China’s third National Memorial Day to Commemorate Victims of the Nanjing Massacre.

“Comfort women,” were women and girls forced into sex slavery by the Japanese during World War II. More than 100 were from Shanxi and those still alive today are still waiting for an official apology from Japan.

The clock, however, is ticking.

Zhang Shuangbing has been visiting and interviewing comfort women in the province for the past 35 years.

Of the 129 women Zhang has on record, only seven are still alive and, to this day, they are still plagued by disturbing flashbacks of the sexual abuse, beatings and physical torture they endured.

On June 13, 1943, Hao Yuelian, who was 15 at the time, was raped by two Japanese soldiers in her own home while her parents were out.

Later that same day, beaten, bruised and shaken from her earlier encounter with the soldiers she was abducted and put to work in a military brothel to provide sexual services to the Japanese army. She was kept tied up and raped day and night.

“The Japanese government must acknowledge the crime and apologize. I must live and wait for the day to come,” Hao said.

Hao was left infertile due to her ordeal. Hers is not an isolated case.

“Nearly one sixth of the comfort women I visited were infertile because of what they were put through,” Zhang said.

Those that struggled, or tried to escape, were murdered, others committed suicide, and some simply tried to forget what had happened and refused to talk about it, Zhang said.

“I spoke to nearly 130 women in Shanxi, but there were more women in the province who had been forced into sex slavery during the war. I did not get the chance to meet them all,” Zhang said.

Some 400,000 women in Asia were forced to serve as comfort women during WWII, nearly half of whom were Chinese, according to Su Zhiliang, director of the comfort women research center at Shanghai Normal University.

On behalf of the women victims in Shanxi, Zhang submitted a letter of complaint to the Japanese government in 1992. The Supreme Court in Japan threw out the lawsuit in 2007. The three groups of comfort women who tried to sue the Japanese government all passed away without receiving an apology or compensation.

“They are witnesses to an event that should never be forgotten, but we are losing them every day,” Zhang said.
