OMG! It Is Official!

Holy crap!  I got a good chuckle when I heard that a bunch of spineless Congressmen signed a petition to nominate Trump for the Nobel…..but it is not so humorous for it is official he will be nominated……

Republican lawmakers have nominated President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize. Eighteen House members penned a letter Wednesday to the Nobel Prize Committee praising the president’s efforts to broker peace in the Korean Peninsula, reports the Hill. “President Trump has worked tirelessly to apply maximum pressure on North Korea to end its illicit weapons program and bring peace to the region,” the letter says. The lawmakers credit the president for the recent historic meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, in which the leaders agreed to rid the Peninsula of nuclear weapons and bring a formal end to the countries’ 68-year-old war. Although the countries entered into an armistice in 1953, they never signed an official peace treaty.

If the two countries can resolve their differences, Trump deserves the prize, Sen. Bob Corker told CNBC Wednesday, but the senator issued a caution. The Foreign Relations Committee chair said that North Korea has made several overtures in the last two decades, only to reverse course. In a separate interview with CNBC, retired Gen. Michael Hayden credited progress with North Korea to four things: “The president squeezing the [North] Koreans, the economic sanctions, the diplomatic isolation, the military demonstrations.” He added, though, that Trump’s earlier tweets about Kim, in which he famously called him “Rocket Man,” were not helpful. Trump plans to meet with the North Korean leader in the next month or so. If the meeting takes place, it would be the first time a sitting US president has met with a North Korean leader.

Obama got the prize for nothing and Trump has been nominated for nothing… if he, Trump, does broker an agreement then I say he gets the prize….but right now NO he deserves none.

He was a bully and then turned into a warm and fuzzy participant……so far right now it is a bit absurd…..

The nomination for the 2019 prize came in a letter from 18 of Trump’s Republican supporters in the House of Representatives to the Nobel Committee chair Berit Reiss-Andersen, which starkly resembled the narrative of fakery the President delights in. Trump, went the signers, should receive the prize “in recognition of his work to end the Korean War, denuclearize the Korean peninsula, and bring peace to the region.”

The Republicans seem to have things the wrong way around.  Rather than incite instability, Trump supposedly calmed the waters.  Rather than creating teeth-chattering fear amongst allies, he brought accord where there was disagreement.  “Since taking office, President Trump has worked tirelessly to apply maximum pressure on North Korea to end its illicit weapons programs and bring peace to the region.” He was the great unifier, bringing on powers such as China “to impose one of the most successful international sanctions regimes in history.” (Never let history get in the way of a good tale.)

Stay Tuned…….

    1. JFK and his brother Robert did it the frugal way – they shared Marilyn Monroe and did it in the White House!!

    1. I agree…this prize is getting to be a joke….Obama did nothing to get his and Trump has done little but he he helps broker a peace then he deserves he nomination….chuq

  1. M’gawd!! There are 18 idiots who nominated him. One of them is from Florida (Gaetz, I think). I read that the time for nomination had already passed!! 😮

    1. They should have no more weight than say a PMf Finland….the Freedom Caucus is his biggest supporters in Congress…they are probably the+ culprits….chuq

  2. For a non-politician, at least he’s trying, that’s a heck of a lot more than our previous catastrophe. Obama did nothing but cause problems here at home – the overseas mistakes are too long to list.

    1. I agree that Obama did not deserve the prize…no one deserves the prize for nothing…..there should be an e1uation used to determine the winner chuq

  3. Let’s see now — Obama went around the world apologizing for America and got the Nobel Peace Prize. Trump goes around talking about Making America Great again and actually trying to do things to make it happen and somebody decides he should be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. I think Trump’s motivations are far superior to the previous pretender to the presidency and I say, go for it!

  4. Obama was barely elected when he got his Nobel prize so it must have been for something he was going to do or promised to do. We can see now after his presidency what it was for and that it was to sell America down the river.
