Opinion: DJ Akademiks is a fool for this one

Let these words be the last to my unborn seeds

Hope to raise my young nation in this world of greed

Currency means nothin’ if you still ain’t free

Money breeds jealousy, take the game from me” – 2Pac – ‘Hold Ya Head’ 1996

Sometimes it is like the current generation thinks they are better than the previous ones. There are all these metrics and these sorts games to scale it. While not acknowledging the founders, the ones that built it and the ones that made it possible for others. There are very few that legends and a part of the legacy of an art-form. However, those that are should be respected, acknowledged and given credit too. Not being dismissed, disregarded or mocked. It isn’t like they didn’t do anything. If they didn’t grab the micks in the park or listen to DJ Kool Herc. Some of the current recording artists, producers or DJs wouldn’t have a place to perform to begin with.

Just reading these words from Livingstone Allen aka DJ Akademics. The YouTuber, Hip Hop Influencer and Hip Hop News caster in his own right. Has carved his own niche and platform on Twitch and YouTube. As he has reported and been part of the culture for a “long” time now. However, these words are disrespectful.

DJ Akademiks is in hot water after some of his comments about hip-hop’s pioneers. While live on Twitch, Akademiks referred to the legendary rappers as ‘dusty,’ He says, “them old rappers, man. Have you seen any of these old rappers who be like, yo, they’re the foundation of Hip Hop really living good?” he said. “Them n****s be looking really dusty, I kid you not. And none of y’all try to come for me ’cause I don’t f**k with y’all n****s either, so I’m just telling y’all the truth. Every time there be like an old, old n***a talking about Hip Hop, you be like, ‘Yo, bro. You sure you invented this? ‘Cause everybody else is looking better than you.’ Facts!”” (HOT 97 – ‘DJ AKADEMIKS TRENDS AFTER HE CALLS HIP HOP PIONEERS ‘DUSTY’, LL COOL J RESPONDS’ 22.09.2022).

There has always been competition between the “old” and the “new”. There has been that since the beginning of the art-form. That’s why Kool Moe Dee battled Busy Bee at Harlem World. That’s why Nelly challenged KRS-One. We can go on-and-on about these sorts of beefs, battles and their significant values to the culture. They are all a part of Hip Hop and wouldn’t have happened. If it wasn’t a time or change of the spectrum of it.

Kool Moe Dee challenged the then “old-school” party-MC scene and went in more lyrical. Just like that things has changed the art. There are people like Red Alert, DJ Kay Slay and others who has furthered the culture. It is plenty more and should be dozens of books telling the stories of the recordings of Sugarhill Gang. The rise of Def Jam and how other record labels became a thing. Just like producers who has changed the sounds, making regional differences and even unique beats to bring a certain type of heat. All of them hasn’t been appreciated, but their time and energy should be acknowledged.

Everyone won’t know Coke La Roc, neither will everyone know who Marley Marl is. Nevertheless, these has had a say and did significant things in this here game. More people might know about MC Shan or others who hit the charts at one point. Though everyone who participated and dropped their verses on wax has made a difference. It is a reason why the old-heads at one point wasn’t nodding along to the one-note-whacky fruityloopes beats. That was because it wasn’t boom-bap and the “golden era sound”. Everything has it’s moment and sudden a fad hits. However, the art and the music will move to the next.

That’s where DJ Akademiks forgets a simple fact. The real old-school wasn’t getting labels, signed by big corporate record companies. No, they were on the trenches and performed at clubs. Certain ones never hit the charts or ever became well-known personalities. Still, their performances and their flows inspired others who in the end did. If they didn’t perform and made entertainment. Others wouldn’t have emulated or created their own path.

Just like there are plenty of legends and heroes I haven’t mentioned. Neither has I have even touched the surface. It is just the loss of ideals and deeper understanding of it. DJ Akademiks is just disrespectful. That is the general assumption I have. It’s like he doesn’t value the people before him and the ones that has made it possible. Someone had to be there before and open up the gates. At one point… no one would believe this sort of art-form would ever go outside New York. Now it’s world-wide and even the K-Pop group Blackpink has a rapper as a part of their group. So, it’s not like they didn’t change or make a difference.

What the predecessors did was to open an avenue. Use their creativity in all parts of the culture. They embraced it and showed a way. Some prospered as lyricists, others as producers, others as graffiti-artists and others as breakdancers. They all played their parts. Calling them dusty in 2022 is just wrong.

I don’t expect everyone to go back in time and check up the early recordings. Neither does everyone look up to or see into the work of the predecessors even. Nevertheless, to just speak so ill of them and not give any sort of credit. That’s just wrong by all accounts. DJ Akademiks wouldn’t have a platform or place to speak off. If it wasn’t for the culture and how it has progressed. That’s because of others before him and who also did speak on the matter.

DJ AK has clearly a jaded vision and is only about the currency. His only about the coins and fat bank-accounts. However, some of the people before him will forever be respected. Their achievements and their participation will be reflected with time. They don’t need to be in a “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” or a Star on the pavement in Hollywood. No, their craft, their flow, beats or whatever will be part of it to this day.

Everything isn’t about the money. Money doesn’t change everything and it doesn’t make everything better even. That’s why still the rawest and most consistent parts of hip-hop is the underground and their releases outside the main-stream production. This is still where you can find the purest and the hardest bars. Therefore, DJ Akademiks forget a vital part of the industry and the culture itself. Everything isn’t for the Billbords or Nielsen Soundscan. Some parts are for the streets, the “RapGodFathers” and WorldStarHipHop. There are so many avenues and means to an end.

That’s why DJ Akademiks needs to re-assess his stance. I know he will be defiant. Nevertheless, he should be a bit more humble. Who says his name will forever ring or be relevant? Who couldn’t do his job or stream Hip Hop related content on Twitch/YouTube or have a Podcast on Spotify? Not like his the only one. Jay Smooth should have even a bigger platform than him on the sense of quality and resounding arguments on current topics. However, we cannot expect that in the current time. Because the loudmouth is getting more eyes and clicks, not the wits or the wise.

This is why I even had to write this to get a piece of mind. Peace.

Opinion: Judge Cannon’s fallacy …

1. The term “seized material” in the Court’s Order Appointing Special Master [ECF No. 91] is modified to include all materials seized on August 8, 2022, except the approximately one-hundred documents bearing classification markings [ECF No. 91 ¶ 2].

2. Paragraph 5(b)(i)(bb) of the Order Appointing Special Master is hereby STRICKEN [ECF No. 91 ¶ 5].

3. Paragraph 6 of the Order Appointing Special Master is hereby STRICKEN [ECF No. 91 ¶ 6].

Case 9:22-cv-81294-AMC Document 104 Entered on FLSD Docket 09/22/2022 Page 1 of 2” (UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT – SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA – WEST PALM BEACH DIVISION – CASE NO. 22-81294-CIV-CANNON, 22.09.2022).

Today it’s proof that the legal argument for having a special master looking into the documents and whatnot from the 8th August 2022 Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) house search of Mar-A-Lago. Since the defence of Trump himself and his attorneys has been various of weird arguments. We heard the latest in an interview this week that Trump can think and that’s how he “declassified” documents. However, everyone knows that’s impossible and not even clever spin.

Former President Trump had national security documents, documents marked secret and empty binders of that as well. There is several of breaches of law and the security organizations has to assess the damage and possible dangers of the former President having them in a golf-club and storing them in an unsecure location. That’s what the former President did with highly sensitive documents, which should only be at government facilities and around people with proper security clearances. Therefore, the case and defences of it sort of futile. Unless, Trump and his attorney could prove they have “declassified” and done proper procedure. However, that hasn’t been done and it’s obvious they never will. Because, they got nothing and are empty handed. Trump was caught red-handed and like Shaggy trying to sing “it wasn’t me”. Nevertheless, we know it was him and he did this deliberately.

That’s why the taking of a Trump appointed judge in Florida to issue the order of Special Master to review the documents. Really just shows how the former President lacks proper judgement or ideas for having it. Since, he thought the appointed special master would stall the investigation and not ask questions. However, the special master did question Trump and his attorneys without any proper justification for having the classified documents. The only thing this process has done. Is to stop the investigation for some time, but not as much as Trump wanted it.

Now… Judge Aileen Cannon even had to backtrack the Special Master… which is a proven of the lacking justification for it in the first place. These sentences from her will be with her for the rest of her career. Just read it!

On the 15th September Court Order:

Lastly, the Court agrees with the Government that “the public is best served by even handed adherence to established principles of civil and criminal procedure,” regardless of the personal identity of the parties involved [ECF No. 88 p. 10]. It is also true, of course, that even handed procedure does not demand unquestioning trust in the determinations of the Department of Justice. Based on the nature of this action, the principles of equity require the Court to consider the specific context at issue, and that consideration is inherently impacted by the position formerly held by Plaintiff. The Court thus continues to endeavor to serve the public interest, the principles of civil and criminal procedure, and the principles of equity. And the Court remains firmly of the view that appointment of a special master to conduct a review of the seized materials, accompanied by a temporary injunction to avoid unwarranted use and disclosure of potentially privileged and/or personal materials, is fully consonant with the foregoing principles and with the need to ensure at least the appearance of fairness and integrity under unprecedented circumstances” (UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT – SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA – WEST PALM BEACH DIVISION – CASE NO. 22-81294-CIV-CANNON, 15.09.2022).

Now that Judge Cannon has STRICKEN the Special Master. That shows the plaintiff and the one under investigation losing out. While the judge has been able to buy a little time. Nevertheless not a lot. Judge Cannon was surely picked because she was a part of Federalist Society and is Republican. She fit the bill and was appointed him. So, when Trump needed a favour… Cannon did that for him now. At least she tried… though she saw it more important to shield and defend Trump over the National Security. That’s the proof of her action and she saw it fit to get a special master when the security agencies should look into the documents and assess the damage further. However, that was partly stopped over the whole ordeal in the Courts.

The Judge has destroyed her name in honour of giving Trump what he needed. She served Trump and not the nation. In a government office, she saw it more important to serve him, than considering the national security implications of this case. That is an act that shouldn’t have happened, but it did and for her it should have consequences. Though we cannot expect impeachment or any sort of reaction. Her name is now tainted and so is her role as a judge.

Her decision to ensure the case got a Special Master to later rescind it or STRICKEN it. Just shows how she failed and how her legal arguments was false. It was a farce and there is nothing good coming out of it. Not even Trump is getting his way and his lucky it hasn’t had further consequences yet. Because, anyone else would be in bracelets and be indicted for having such material in their home. However, his still walking around and being a public figure. Really showing contempt of the courts and their duties. Therefore, this case has to be resolved and the statutes used against him has to be addressed. Since the FBI couldn’t have done a house-search without proof or evidence of the committed acts of the Former President.

That is something the Judge must have known, but she chose to side with Trump. This is the total disarray of her arguments and reasoning to get the Special Master. She has now shown to the world what sort of judge she is. Another lackey and someone who doesn’t value rule of law, which is a sad fact when she’s in-fact as custodian of the law. Judge Cannon should be one of the first to understand and act accordingly, but she chose partisanship. That reflected in the manners of which she got the Special Master. Today she has backtracked it, but the decision will linger on forever.

Just for one reason. A judge chosen a person over national security. No one would believe that is possible, but in this case it was. It is weird writing those words, but someone chose Trump over the law. That shows where the loyalty lays and where the oath went. It wasn’t to uphold the nation or the ideals of the state. No, it was to serve and do it by any means necessary. Peace.

A final memo: The STRICKEN part is sadly only that the marked classified documents are out of the scope for the Special Master. The Special Master still have to review the other documents, but Trump attorney’s will be questioned and have to answer for still having them. Since they are deemed as government documents. There might be private documents in between the government documents, but that is incriminating. Therefore, the next few days will be interesting in this regard. Judge Cannon still chose Trump over National Security in regard to the Classified Documents. Peace.

Opinion: Trump’s house of cards…

When the whole image, business and public persona is built on lie. The former President Donald J Trump and his Vice Presidents of the Trump Organization is in bigger trouble than ever before. Trump and his kin is now in dire jeopardy. This means that Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Junior and Eric Trump could all loose licence and ability to run businesses. That’s serious implications, as well, as the possibility to cease all business operation of the Trump Organization itself. Meaning all the corporations connected and in the association with Trump Organization could all cease their works when the case is over.

The case in New York can be detrimental to them. The systemic fraud, tax evasion and wire-fraud. The inflated valuation of the real-estates for loans and decreased evaluation for the taxes. Are the manner of which the Trump Organization has earned fortunes. This is why this whole case is astonishing.

You know it’s really hard hitting when everything is pinned by the NY Attorney General:

The 16 defendants in this case include: Donald Trump, Donald Trump, Jr., Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump, the Trump Organization Inc., the Trump Organization LLC, the Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust, DJT Holdings LLC, DJT Holdings Managing Member, Allen Weisselberg, Jeffrey McConney, as well as the entities that received the loans that are the subject of the action, including: Trump Endeavor 12 LLC, 401 North Wabash Venture LLC, Trump Old Post Office LLC, 40 Wall Street LLC, and Seven Springs LLC” (NY Attorney General, 21.09.2022).

This case is just shattering how the Trump Organization and everyone involved did this deliberately. They had a scheme which was done in such a fashion. That they lied to the banks and also to the IRS. Not that anyone is a friend with the IRS or the banks, but lying to them for profit is illegal. This wasn’t technicalities, but what the Trump Organization did with all of their means.

The key areas of the 222 pages long lawsuit can boiled down to this:

The lawsuit alleges that Donald Trump, with the help of his children Donald Trump, Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump, and senior executives at the Trump Organization, falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars to induce banks to lend money to the Trump Organization on more favorable terms than would otherwise have been available to the company, to satisfy continuing loan covenants, to induce insurers to provide insurance coverage for higher limits and at lower premiums, and to gain tax benefits, among other things. From 2011-2021, Mr. Trump and the Trump Organization knowingly and intentionally created more than 200 false and misleading valuations of assets on his annual Statements of Financial Condition to defraud financial institutions. This conduct was in violation of New York Executive Law 63(12), which gives the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) special and broad powers to go after persistent and repeated fraud and illegality, which in this case includes violating other state laws prohibiting the submission of false financial statements, the falsification of business records, and the commission of insurance fraud. As a consequence of these violations, OAG is seeking, among other relief, to: 1) permanently bar Mr. Trump, Donald Trump, Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump from serving as an officer or director in any New York corporation or similar business entity registered and/or licensed in New York state; 2) bar Mr. Trump and the Trump Organization from entering into any New York real estate acquisitions for five years; 3) award disgorgement of all financial benefits obtained through the persistent fraudulent practices, estimated to total $250 million” (NY Attorney General, 21.09.2022).

This here just show how intentional it was done by the Trump Organization. It was year after year and done to secure beneficiary loans or lax taxes. They did this to ensure they paid less taxes and inflated the values to get better conditions on the loans. Therefore, they tricked the banks and the IRS. If a citizen or a low ranking civilian did this. The authorities would have asked for every penny back in a hot minute after the audit of the taxes. However, Trump Organization has been able to get away with it. As a sophisticated blue-collar crime. Now these sorts of violations, breaches and illegalities are catching up with him.

Donald J. Trump and his family members will feel this one. They might loose the ability to run businesses. The same could happen to his Vice Presidents of the Trump Organization too. The actions made by the company and everyone involved are now under jeopardy. After the civilian case in the Southern District of New York (SDNY). This could be pushed to a criminal case by the IRS or others. Therefore, this case is only the beginning.

It doesn’t help Trump’s case either that he pleaded the Fifth in the deposition with the Attorney General a month ago. That he plead the fifth over 400 times and avoided answering any question. It is verify and will be used by the Courts to pin it on him. In the same regard, this case has also shown yet again that he has “obstructed justice” and not followed “subpoenas”. Meaning he didn’t follow proceedings and keeping up with the investigation. That Trump and his company withheld vital documents, which was just kept at Mar-A-Lago and only found by the FBI search on the 8th August 2022.

Which was described like this: “But even after almost two years of litigation it appears that it may still be the case that not all responsive documents were produced. Among other things, in litigation over a search warrant executed at Mar-a-Lago on August 8, 2022, the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida noted that “the seized materials include… correspondence related to taxes, and accounting information.” Trump v. United States, 22 Civ. 81294, Order, Docket 64 (S.D. Fla. Sept. 5, 2022). Documents concerning taxes and accounting information would appear to be responsive to OAG’s subpoenas, but no such documents for Mr. Trump were produced by counsel for Mr. Trump despite a representation by that counsel that: I “diligently searched each and every room of Respondent’s private residence located at Mar-a-Lago, including all desks, drawers, nightstands, dressers, closets, etc. I was unable to locate any documents responsive to the Subpoena that have not already been produced to the OAG by the Trump Organization.”” (NY Attorney General, 21.09.2022).

This is compelling and very obvious. It isn’t the first time either. All through the Trump Presidency. His White House and Staff wasn’t following subpoenas or the due process. There been so many times over the years, that Trump stalled or stifled the progression of any investigation. This is what his done and it’s well known. Now it’s just in print and in a Court Document. The NY Attorney General has surely show her finesse and ability to go into detail It will be hard for Trump and the Trump Organization to refute this in Court. Especially, when he pleaded the fifth on every single question ahead of the grand jury. Certainly, Trump and company should feel the burden of proof is on their hands.

Former President is now under the most pressure he has ever been. This could be the end of his lives work and his legacy as a businessman. The Trump Organization can easily be over after this. That is the end-game here and it must be stressful. You shouldn’t feel sorry for Trump or his Company. This has been in the making and the illegalities would catch up to him eventually. It isn’t like the IRS or the authorities would allow someone off the hook for not paying proper taxes. Neither would the banks accept being defrauded and mocked by the Trump Organization taking out these loans on false premises either. Because of all this… there is no real defence on doing it, but his lawyers will surely do their best. Though I have a hard time believing they have any grounds or ability to justify it either.

That’s why this solid case will be the start of everything unravelling. It goes to the heart of Trump. The acts of his business “empire” and what made him “rich”. Now the truth on how it operated and how it made money is shown to the world. Thing will never return to the same or be the same.

Former President Trump is now in trouble and he has nowhere to hide. Peace.

Opinion: The Def Noodles controversies is getting out of hand…

You know you’re a hot mess when the only person buying you drinks all night is yourself” Chelsea Handler

After following Def Noodles aka Dennis Feitosa since the COVID lockdowns and all of the internet “news” and “drama” videos. He himself is becoming the centre of gravity and all for the wrong reasons. The man should leave the internet and be off social media for a while. Because, that way he can salvage his business and his own channels.

Right now, the main channel is bleeding subscribers and losing viewers too. His podcast has abysmal numbers as well. The Def Noodles brand and such is already wasted. The talk of self-destruction and killing own career is evident.

What is even more striking because of the second roast. The people are starting to look into the history of the lore and reasons for Def Noodles to become like this. They are starting to analyse his channel and his content choices. What is more striking now… isn’t that Kavos made him nearly quit YouTube at one point.

No, what is more striking is that his wife and YouTuber has been copied by the former husband/partner. Def Noodles has copied the content, the cat-ears and whatnot. Just like everything was Filipino at one point, the former wife/partner had everything Korean. Their channels went in tandem and did about similar things. He couldn’t even be original about it. Def or Dennis copied Lauren down to the thumbnails. That’s really biting her craft and becoming big doing so.

We know that Def Noodles has no plans of reviving the “irrelevant news” and the TMZ sort of internet news era. He has stated that himself, however, the foolishness of doing so.. is that the reason people subscribed and followed him was because of that. They didn’t come his way for jokes, pickle-ice-cream or “pallet cleansers”. No, they came for the ridiculous happening of the online sphere.

Now his turning not only into a failed actor and director. He is turning into a failure of a comedian and internet personality. Def Noodles owns a comedy club that no one respects. Certainly, because of his actions of late. He will get into trouble and more litigation possibly. Both for taking art-work from creators and possibly getting sued for doing so. One creator who was used for the first ticket-sales to the first roast is planning to do so. Secondly, he could face a lawsuit from Salvo Pancakes and the altercation or the assault on stage, which was caught on camera. Third, there is talk of people alerting the authorities of the possible breaches of serving liquor without liquor licenses at the venue. Last, he might have to answer for fire-safety and the seating arrangement in the comedy club. Since if you look on the tapes. It doesn’t seem to be designated way to the fire-escape and clear walk-way, if the unfortunate things was about to transpire. This is all speculations, but isn’t making things better.

Def Noodles already has a legal challenge and a lawsuit against Keemstar. The mortal enemy and the one who he has spoken ill of for months. Many thought he went the commentary route to emulate and a look like of internet enemies. Now it seems even more creepier, as he possibly copied his former wife/partner. I don’t know about you… but that is suspect things. When you can look into her channel and see how much he has copied over the years. It is really something else.

You also know it’s all bad when Social Blade estimations of loss of subscribers over a year could reach about 300k and a channel with about 550k. That’s over half of the ones who subscribed to you. This isn’t a good look, but showing what sort of downward spiral the man is in. It doesn’t help him that he has only yes-men and people boosting his ego around him. That’s why his not listening to criticism or anyone questioning his actions.

He is acting like a tough guy, but never acting responsible for it. Only gaslighting and acting as a professional victim. That can only work for a while, but the cover is already up. The means to an end only get you so far. Being on the trending tab on Twitter isn’t feeding you. What is feeding you is either views on YouTube, the amount of Patreon members and people buying merchandize. However, how much money can be in that now?

Def Noodles has to pay for staff and keep his business afloat. He has to ensure revenue from the Comedy Club and also all the other things he got going on. Those liabilities are now on him. We cannot know if the pressure and the internet has gotten the best out of him. Since, his trying to carve his own lane, but not managing to do so.

Dennis certainly want to achieve things, but his alienating his own audience and the ones who followed him. His only wants “ride or die” fans and the rest can just scatter. There is enough other sources or places to find what he was doing in the past. He was a glorified “tea channel” and now he wants to be something else. However, that isn’t working for him.

Last night performance just shows what he does to get controversy. He cannot handle the pressure or the double role of being an owner and the main-act. That’s just to much for him. He wants to be the big-shot, but instead becomes the butt of the joke. People are not laughing at his joke but at him. That’s because of the epic failures and the mismanagement from him. It doesn’t help with the aggression and the means that he used against Salvo. This just shows the character of Def Noodles…

He cannot morally be objective in his pieces anymore. For someone who is so vile and aggressive. Def Noodles is surely out of his mind. That is obvious to everyone who watches. It is not strange if people critic him and questions him now. This isn’t about spreading defamation or false information in his previous videos. Neither is the lack of credibility the man has. No, now its about the manner and the ways his operating. Which isn’t controversial but straight out foolish. The man is trying to act all cool and edgy, but comes out as cringe. He isn’t built for this… and Salvo caught him red-handed.

It isn’t “are you from Detroit?” Or “Do you want to make out?” but a real roast battle going all wrong. This just shows what sort of man he is. Def Noodles certainly cannot handle it and the coping mechanisms isn’t helping him either.

Time will tell how this is backfiring. This weekend has been brutal to Def Noodles and it isn’t getting any better. There is no hope on the horizon. Unless, he has a sudden change of heart and tries out another character or stick to sell on his YouTube Channel. Because, the comments on his videos is indicating the losses. Def Noodles is destroying his platform and his own name. One day at a time and it’s a crazy journey to follow. Peace.

Opinion: If Biden’s speech enrages you… it’s not our problem, but your own!

We’re all called, by duty and conscience, to confront extremists who will put their own pursuit of power above all else. Democrats, independents, mainstream Republicans: We must be stronger, more determined, and more committed to saving American democracy than MAGA Republicans are to — to destroying American democracy. We, the people, will not let anyone or anything tear us apart. Today, there are dangers around us we cannot allow to prevail. We hear — you’ve heard it — more and more talk about violence as an acceptable political tool in this country. It’s not. It can never be an acceptable tool. So I want to say this plain and simple: There is no place for political violence in America. Period. None. Ever” – President Joe Biden (01.09.2022).

On the 1st September 2022 for the first, “Dark Brandon” or the more fierce President Biden speech in Philadelphia. I have referred to Biden as “lukewarm coffee” but this time he was finally poignant and direct with his message. A message that is needed, because with his predecessor there has been rising right-wing extremism and they became a vital part of the Republican power base. Therefore, this speech is needed.

Yes, there been push-backs and people claiming Biden is divider in chief. However, the predecessor was speaking ill of the left on the daily basis and called for locking up his enemies. He spoke bad of the Democrats and even their news channels. While he praised Fox News and other outlets.

This speech was a needed one. It is also very telling about that it wasn’t on every station. Plenty showed ordinary programming and didn’t even send it live. This shows not only the bias but also how they operate. They are willing to send former President Trump at any time, but not Biden when speaks of something vital or important.

It is just showing how fragmented the USA have become. The different realities and messaging, which is spread among the heartland. This speech will only be seen as shattering or shocking, if you haven’t followed politics for a hot minute. If this speech is bad for you or doesn’t settle well. I am afraid that’s on you. Because, violent political extremism isn’t worth having. Anyone who has some clarity should understand that.

Biden is right on with his message and it’s needed. Only fascists, supports fascism. That is also obvious. If that hurts your pride, your banners and your believes. That’s all on you and fascists or fascism has never created anything good. It has only destroyed democracies, gone after minorities and political dissidents. There is nothing good coming out of fascism. You can check history and know this.

That’s why Biden’s speech in Philadelphia was important. It is a resounding message. Hopefully it wasn’t to late. The MAGA crowds, the Republican’s who abide by this will rebuke it. However, people should be aware of the power and what that sort of politicking does. Because, nothing good comes out of it.

Throughout our history, America has often made the greatest progress coming out of some of our darkest moments, like you’re hearing in that bullhorn. I believe we can and we must do that again, and we are. MAGA Republicans look at America and see carnage and darkness and despair. They spread fear and lies –- lies told for profit and power. But I see a very different America — an America with an unlimited future, an America that is about to take off. I hope you see it as well. Just look around” (Biden, 01.09.2022).

Sometimes the truth is just so revealing and so brutal. That the ones aspiring or living for something cannot handle it. Biden just told it like it is… if your feelings was hurt or it rocked your pride. Than you need to look into yourself. Because, who in the right minds wants to be fascists and be associated with fascism?

That’s just very telling. It has been visible all through the predecessors term. The rise of violent groups associated with the Republican party. They have all bashed in the glory of Trump. Now, Biden is telling their story and the Republican’s suddenly feels hurt. They have boosted themselves in it and played their part. Now their story is told. Their messages are being enlightened and then they push-back. It is just showing the dire reality and the what is at stake.

Biden did what needed to be done. Finally he went from “lukewarm coffee” into hot coffee and it taste good. Peace.

Opinion: Papa Don promises to pardon his insurrection base…

I will tell you, I will look very, very favorably about full pardons. If I decide to run and if I win, I will be looking very, very strongly about pardons. Full pardons… I mean full pardons with an apology to many” (…) “I am financially supporting people that are incredible and they were in my office actually two days ago, so they’re very much in my mind” – Donald J. Trump on the Wendy Bell interview on Thursday (01.09.2022).

When there is talk that the “Stop the Steal” and the January 6th insurrection of the capitol. The time when the Republican base illegally entered the capital and the congress. As the Republicans and the people surrounding former President Trump aka “Papa Don”. It is really telling that as the insurrection is being investigated and the culprits are getting behind bars. The man who promoted and worked to “win” with the coup d’etat is inciting for more. He wants to salvage the men and women who was on the barricades for him. That’s not a unifying message and neither is it helping his case. Just showing that he incited and wants to defend the ones who was playing a part of it.

Papa Don has no democratic backbone or ideals. It is just personal and he needs the Oval Office to enlarge his Trump Organization. That could possibly be leveraging his businesses and the government connection could be used to get favourable tenders. That’s the sort of man he is and this is why the Trump Hotel in Washington D.C. was the place to be during his tenure. He got all the deals and agreements with overseas dignitaries, because of his role as Head of State.

Papa Don lost his leverage and the office, which gave him power. A man who has dozens of failed businesses, short-term ventures and scams. That has all gone through the Courts and been recorded. Now, he wants the enraged base of MAGA and Republican’s on steroids to save his career. If not he will have trouble with the cases pending in plenty of states. In coordination with the trying to overturn the 2020 election. He just knows this and that’s why his pleading loyalty to the insurrectionists.

The ones that has acted in treason and tried to stop an election from being certified by the Congress. A group of people that entered illegally the capitol and had plans of executing the Vice President Mike Pence. They were also targeting others in capital and they knew which offices to enter as well. Therefore, this was well planned by the organizers and they came with a mission.

For a party that was supposed to be about rule of law. Their hero Papa Don wouldn’t care less about it. He wants to use the legislation and the authorities to target his enemies, but be shielded for his crimes. The former President used “executive privilege” and obstructed justice in several of cases while in office. The man who has had no issues to project crimes, which he himself has done. Papa Don certainly is terrified that he don’t have a legal shield or can use an office to get away now. Because, that’s what he did while he was in office. Now that’s not happening….

That’s why he clings on to this base. The base of Republican’s that doesn’t value democracy or rule of law. The men and women who are caught up in extremism. They have no trouble causing violence, threatening the values of the Republic and even participate in a coup d’etat. That’s what they are willing to do and now Papa Don wants to be their saviour, because they did this all for him.

That’s the Cult45 and how he operates. It shows the sinister side of the Republican party. Their leader goes this far and incite this violence without any repercussions. Now the general public get to know that he will save them. That’s telling them to repeat it or even do it again. He wants them to be on his side and fight his battles. They are the people that matters to him.

It is really telling what Papa Don is willing to do. His saying it out loud and people should be aware. Just like he gave pardons to Roger Stone and others before leaving office. He really have no scruples and shows it.

Papa Don would easily if he could… would have another coup d’etat and overthrown Joe Biden. He would have entered the Washington D.C. and taken power. That’s what his saying and his defending the people who stood on his side. He don’t mind the dead police officers or the hurt guards of the capitol. No, they don’t matter to him. Only the people who is on his side and fighting his causes.

Papa Don is clearly dangerous and the ones who don’t get that. Well… you forgot quickly how they planned and tried with all the tricks of the book to putsch the 2020 election. Peace.

Opinion: The reasons for the FBI Search of Mar-A-Lago makes more sense by the minute

There are important national security interests in the FBI and others in the Intelligence Community getting access to these materials. According to NARA, among the materials in the boxes are over l 00 documents with classification markings, comprising more than 700 pages. Some include the highest levels of classification, including Special Access Program (SAP) materials. Access to the materials is not only necessary for purposes of our ongoing criminal investigation, but the Executive Branch must also conduct an assessment of the potential damage resulting from the apparent manner in which these materials were stored and transpotted and take any necessary remedial steps. Accordingly, we are seeking immediate access to these materials so as to facilitate the necessary assessments that need to be conducted within the Executive Branch” (Acting Archivist of the United States, Debra Steidel Wall letter to Evan Corcoran, 10.05.2022).

The raid or the search of the home of Donald J. Trump or Mar-A-Lago, Florida on the 9th August 2022 is just becoming obvious. It is a reason why the Trump lawyers and their whole “transparency” plans is backfiring.

The former President is now in hot water. That’s because of what the documents that is leaked is saying about the investigation. All the sorts of defences and excuses to have the documents doesn’t make any sort sense now. The documents are not planted, declassified or allowed to be there. Secondly, after the last revelation. It is a possibilities that the documents are missing, lost or traded away.

One way or another… there is conspiracy and intent of the former President here. He took these documents and withheld them from the authorities. There was a long discussion and grand jury subpoena for the return of the set documents, which the former President didn’t comply with.

As the former Head of State he didn’t only breach the rules of taking these documents away from the archives and outside the White House. The former President did this deliberately and kept some documents in an unsecure storage facility and others was either in his desk or in his office. Where they found “43 Empty Folders with “CLASSIFIED’” Banners” and “28 Empty Folders Labeled “Return to Staff Secretary Miliary Aide”. In addition they found several of classified, top secret and secret documents too. Therefore, there is several of questions remaining why he had this and kept these privately.

There was even more in the storage unit of missing documents and secret documents as well. This just shows to what extent this enterprise was. It seems like it was leverage and possible means to an end.

The former President is investigated under several of statutes and one of them is the espionage. If the Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) or the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) find proofs of the conspiracy or the possible criminal acts. That would be detrimental to it.

However, even without the Espionage Act breaches and possible damage to national security. The law enforcement can go after the former President for breaching the law with having these documents illegally and storing them as well. He broke the law by not complying and letting the NARA take over these. The final part is the endangering the nation by holding these documents and whatever they contained. There was a lot of missing pages and we have no idea what was on them or their designated meaning for either the military or any other vital part of the US Government.

Here Trump has outplayed himself. This isn’t just a scandal, but a crisis of national security. Where people are starting to wonder, if he is a spy and was doing espionage. If he did that… he did something seditious and acted in treason. Just like he was when he incited the mob to attack the capitol on the 6th January 2021 and tried to make a cover coup d’etat to overturn the previous Presidential Election in his favour. It just shows to what extent he does to do thing for personal gains.

Former President Trump isn’t a man of honour, but a man of criminal exposure and for some strange reasons… his been able to avoid the slammer all of his life. While everyone around him is either pleading guilty, being investigated too or possibly facing time. That’s why he promises pardons to everyone supporting his cause. Because, he know he cannot win lawfully and be living according to the law. The law is a problem for him and it’s catching up to him too. Peace.

Opinion: My thoughts on the Jay-Z verse on ‘God Did’

There been a lot of talk and hyping up the DJ Khaled project ‘God Did’. Yet another year, another DJ Khaled compilation album filled with hooks, radio-anthems and some harder tracks for the streets. That’s how this game usually goes and this time around there been talk surrounding the DJ Khaled ft. Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, John Legend, and Fridayy.

The track is around 8 minutes and 20 seconds. That’s a lot of content and needs to be consistent to be energizing. It has to a unique and special record to be able to keep your attention for that long. The first rappers like Rick Ross and Lil Wayne gets the standard 16 bars. While Jay-Z get a four minutes long verse and about 84 bars (unofficially counted myself).

The start and the 16 bars was strong, but when you continue to beat the bullet. The bars needs to vibrant and should be interesting. In this regard the first 16 bars are actually very appealing. It’s isn’t anything out of the usual. The sort of common “luxury” rap format, which we have gotten used too. The sort of rags-to-riches in a few bars story. Where you tell one thing and tell what your doing now.

The same sort of continues and the braggadocios lines are coming steady. That’s why it’s not that brilliant. It just looses steam and the story-telling isn’t really there. It is only mentioning what he has done and did in the past. He wants to be epic, but just sounds self-glorifying.

That’s why it’s all “HOV DID” and not “GOD DID” which is very deliberate. Not shocking or surprising. Maybe because he dropped an album called “Magna Carta – Holy Grail” at one point. So, he likes this sort of magnificent over his own work.

I am a listener of Jay-Z. Done since since the early 2000s, so have several of albums on my playlists. Jay-Z is a good artist and to say otherwise is foolish. However, this is not dunking on Jay-Z, but more the hype surrounding this record.

If this had been the worse on the T.I.’s “Swagger Like Us” or the “Run This Town” where it was more flavour for your ear and competition to show excellence. Because, here Rick Ross went into safety mode and Lil Wayne autotune verse was “mediocre”. So, it wasn’t like Jay-Z needed magic or be solid. He could skate on this one and not even bother actually. Both Rick Ross and Lil Wayne has dropped better guest appearances themselves. If you have followed these too… they have and even on older DJ Khaled records as well.

I expected more from the hype, more finesse, cadence and sort of word-play. In such a way that it played a bit with your mind. Here was just a A-Typical vibe and such “humble” brags that we are accustomed too.

Shawn Carter aka Jay-Z can do more. We know that and to say otherwise is nonsense. They hyped this up to get Spotify-plays and get more eyes on the newest DJ Khaled album. That’s seems like it. This verse isn’t all of that. Initially, if it was like many said on Twitter and on Social Media. I would have been hyped and over the moon. However, after listening to Black Thought’s “Cheat Codes” project. He got better bars and better verses than this. That’s just a fact and Jay-Z doesn’t have the verse of the year. Not even close… maybe commercially and with ratings.

Nevertheless, on the down-low… we know it’s not that unique or special. It was just “another one” and that’s fitting. When he did release this verse for a DJ Khaled record. Peace.

Opinion: The most damning paragraph in the FBI Affidavit to Search Mar-A-Lago

It is respectfully requested that this Court issue an order sealing, until further order of the Court, all papers submitted in support of this application, including the application and search warrant. I believe that sealing this document is necessary because the items and information to be seized are relevant to an ongoing investigation and the FBI has not yet identified all potential criminal confederates nor located all evidence related to its investigation. Premature disclosure of the contents of this affidavit and related documents may have a significant and negative impact on the continuing investigation and may severely jeopardize its effectiveness by allowing criminal parties an opportunity to flee, destroy evidence (stored electronically and otherwise),change patterns of behavior, and notify criminal confederates” (FBI Affidavit for Search of Mar-A-Lago, 2022).

The former President Donald J. Trump is in a lot of legal trouble. There will come a lot litigation and possible criminal cases pending. Because the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) did this as a last chance to get the documents, records and whatnot that the former President had kept in his residence, Mar-A-Lago in Florida.

It is really insane the excuse and the reasoning for the defence of keeping these documents or records. When the former President went into the campaign in 2016 and ahead of the polls just questioning the private email-server of opponent Hillary Clinton. Which was exonerated and investigated into. Yes, Hillary Clinton shouldn’t have done that and given the FBI reasons to investigate her ahead of the polls. However, because of buffoonery of her, it happened.

Now, in 2022 the former President is in even more hot-water than Hillary ever was. The FBI raid of Mar-A-Lago. The share amount of classified, secret, top-secret and TS/SCI documents is staggering. That the former President has kept documents that are of such importance and possible could breach national security. In such a manner, that it’s speaking of nuclear secrets and other national defence information (NDI), which shouldn’t ever be in private hands or outside of secure locations of storage…

Mar-A-Lago was never facilitated to be a secure location. Neither did then President Trump have the rights or the “Executive Privilege” to declassify it. Secondly, these documents wasn’t planted there. Neither, was Trump co-operating with the authorities. That’s why the FBI only saw it fit after trying to get it for months. They had to make the affidavit and get the judge to sign of on the house-search and cease the documents. Which was apparently the only way to retain it…

The larger questions now after the release of the redacted affidavit. There are several of unanswered questions. Not the amount of documents and such. As these documents and possible national secrets could be traded or in part of an espionage mission of some sorts. That’s why the big lie has turned into the big spy. Not only because of the FBI and the Department of Justice used the Espionage Act as part of search, but also the Presidential Records Act and possible obstruction of justice. The last part isn’t anything new, as the President had no trouble obstructing justice in office. That was part of his game-plan and what he did into the investigations surrounding him. Either it was in the Congress or by the Authorities.

If Trump has sold these secrets and national defence information to foreign entities. If he has allowed that to happen. Than a President has gone from being a head of state, into a full fledged traitor of his Republic. It is bad enough that he wanted to overturn and do a coup d’etat against the system he was running at that point. That is saying something, which is seditious in itself and taking it a further step. Just is showing how far the former President could have possibly taken it.

That is just speculation, but there is so many unanswered tales, because of the issue of the documents and what they could possibly contain. It wasn’t like this was publicly available information or sort stuff any private person should have around. No, that’s why this is so damning. Just the idea itself of having it and taking it on purpose. That shows intent and there was some underlying interests in doing so.

Hopefully the investigations will tie the loose ends and the finally indict the former President. That’s when the man will fear the law and actually have huge meltdown. Because, for the first time in his life. He might have to properly answer for his actions. Before he has lost the ability to run a foundation, fined for running a fake university and stifled payment to other companies working for his company. However, he has gotten away with that and also gotten away with vast debt that others could only dream about.

This is why he thinks he can get away with this too. Since there been no real consequences for him. While the wheels of the law is slowly turning. It is looking grim for him. The only hope we can have is that this actually amount to something. Now it really obvious that this man isn’t a trustworthy one. Neither does he care about the law, procedures or anyone else than himself. Peace.

A look into the FBI’s affidavit: The reasons for the FBI Search Warrant to raid Trump’s Mar-A-Lago

 

On the 9th August the home of former President Donald J. Trump. Mar-A-Lago was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The FBI had done everything through procedure and protocol. That’s why the FBI had gotten Search Warrants and ability to enter his building/home legally. This was done, because the former President hadn’t complied with the authorities and hadn’t returned government owned documents. That’s why this went down and there are credible reasons for doing so.

The affidavit states clearly this: “After an initial review of the NARA Referral, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) opened a criminal investigation to, among other things, determine how the documents with classification markings and records were removed from the White House (or any other authorized location(s) for the storage of classified materials)and came to be stored at the PREMISES; determine whether the storage location(s) at the PREMISES were authorized locations for the storage of classified information; determine whether any additional classified documents or records may have been stored in an unauthorized location at the PREMISES or another unknown location, and whether they remain at any such location; and identify any person(s)who may have removed or retained classified information without authorization and/or in an unauthorized space”.

Here is the main issue and the unlawful activity of the former President. It is easy to read this and understand what Trump did. He did blatantly take documents, records and classified information, which he wasn’t allowed to store. Neither did he have secure facilities or the rights to have it. That has been stated in reports in the press already that Trump had “secret”, “top secret”, “classified” and even “TS/SCI”, which is not only highly classified, but only supposed to be kept in certain location and you need special clearances to even get access to it. Therefore, this is case appalling and how little “national security” matters for the “law and order” former President.

The affidavit further says: “The FBI’s investigation has established that documents bearing classification markings, which appear to contain National Defense Information (NDI),were among the materials contained in the FIFTEEN BOXES and were stored at the PREMISES in an unauthorized location”.

Here is talk of compromising documents… and should never ever leave the premises of secure locations. That’s what Trump took to Mar-A-Lago. This could contain vital military secrets and could be dangerous for the national security. He has taken this to his home as he left office.

In addition: “Further, there is probable cause to believe that additional documents that contain classified NDI or that are Presidential records subject to record retention requirements currently remain at the PREMISES. There is also probable cause to believe that evidence of obstruction will be found at the PREMISES”.

The ones that defends his rights to have these documents are now partly insane. Because the preposition of having classified NDI or even TS/SCI outside of safe or secure locations are insane. They should never really be kept outside that and only a selected few with clearances can see it. People who leaks or even tries to whistle-blow this sort of information become felons and get punished with the espionage act. As they violated the state and it’s security. The same can now be said by the former President.

Another interesting fact is this one: “Based upon this investigation, I believe that the STORAGE ROOM, FPOTUS’s residential suite, Pine Hall, the 45 Office, and other spaces within the PREMISES are not currently authorized locations for the storage of classified information or NDI. Similarly, based upon this investigation, I do not believe that any spaces within the PREMISES have been authorized for the storage of classified information at least since the end of FPOTUS’s Presidential Administration on January 20,2021”.

This just shows what sort lack of care or concern for these documents. The former President has violated several of codes and because of his reluctant acts to return then. The FBI has to get a search warrant and get it all. They had to investigate and prove all exhaustion of remedies to get it returned. This just shows what sort of contempt for the law the former President has and how he thinks his above it.

The affidavit doesn’t make the case any better for Donald J. Trump, because the redacted parts of the affidavit only shows there are more unknown acts or possible crimes investigated. The parts that is unleashed today on the public. Only shows what sort acts that has been done by him. There was intent and he stored illegal documents, which has vital national defense information (NDI). That’s compelling and spelling out what he did.

So, if the former President thinks this affidavit vindicate him in any way. No, it only shows the public what sort of man he is and how he violates the law without any consideration of the implications. Because, others would have been in the slammer or behind bars for this much sooner. Peace.
