U.S. Representative Cicilline letter to Paul Ryan on “If President Donald Trump won’t take nuclear war off the table, Congress must” (11.08.2017)

Kenya: Status of Security (10.08.2017)

Opinion: the World does not need War-games on the Korean Peninsula!

The World never needs war, we have enough unsolved conflicts to handle in Iraq, Libya, Syria, South Sudan, Yemen and so on. These are all going on right now. We don’t need another conflict, when the grand gentleman and the leadership of the world cannot fix the ones that are going-on. With all the innocent dying and killings going daily.

Therefore, the warmongering between President Donald J. Trump and President Kim Jong-Un. The possible warfare will be devastating. Not only for the Korean Peninsula, but for world in general. This will possible put lives in danger in South Korea, Japan and China. Not only American territories in the Pacific and on the Asian continent. United States playing a dangerous game with the tough tone.

North Koreans aren’t the most predictable pack of republics, third generation of dictatorship and militarism out of proportions. They can clearly damage their neighbors as the camps of production and total control of population can muster painful weapons who has force to hit Seoul, Tokyo and other major cities. This should worry anyone!

President Trump seems to just want to show his balls and be the biggest voice, not within reason or within thinking consequence. Since his army is placed THAAD missiles on South Korean soil, they might have a bigger nuclear submarines at ports in South Korea. Therefore, their forces are close by the North Korean borders.

No-one with a clear mind and spirit want to venture into a nuclear war, no one with a clear mind wants to venture into war. Because of the effects of the war and the possible destruction of lives. The possible hurt and devastation of society. This here will not only inflict possible hurt on North Korea, it most likely hit South Korea, Japan and China. Even other states who will be hit by random bombs and missiles sent to hurt either off them. For all we know Philippines could get a burner who was supposed to hit Guam. Bombs and missiles aren’t always hitting their targets.

Therefore, it is time for diplomacy and talk. Not enrich plutonium and uranium, while hoping the sanity of our leaders are there. It is time for slowing the rhetoric and talk. Discuss and maneuver in within measure. The end-game are so dire, so unnecessary and a conflict that will take decades to revive a possible positive outcome. Not like the Iraqi war the American’s ventured in are solved by now and that is decades after the invasion and killing of President Sadam Hussain. The history does not need to happen again, neither a similar destruction of a republic like the death of Muammar Al-Gaddafi and Libya. The same could happen in North Korea, with effects that would be mirrored in South Korea.

That is not a weird vision, that is most likely. It is time for Trump to play more golf, lay-off Twitter and stop his alarming statements. Actually shut-up and let his foreign officials work on peaceful means. The North Korean leadership will gain leverage and reason for their testing of more sophisticated equipment. Something the world doesn’t need! Peace.

Statement by H.E. Ri Yong Ho, Minister of Foreign Affairs – Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK – North Korea) at 24th ASEAN Regional Forum (Manila, Philippines, 7 August 2017)

White House conflicting statement’s towards Russia, proves the problematic relationship Trump has with Russia!

Today’s two statements that was released shortly after each says something. Not about the sanctions the bipartisan bills in Senate and the House voted on a massive margin. There was relief or no positive way out for the President to not sign the act. If he had done so, the legislation and the sanctions towards Russia would be another proof of the collusion. We can still question the timing and the days that went from passing it.

The act that was signed today was introduced on the 24th July 2017, voted in the House on the 25th July 2017 with a 419-3. On the 27th July 2017, the Senate vote on the same Act, this time it was 98-2. Then on the 28th July 2017, it was presented to the President for signing. This after a fantastic majority of both chambers voting on it. So on 2nd August 2017 the President signed the Act on sanctions. That means 5 days it was waiting on his desk and he was wondering what to do about it.

Therefore, with the knowledge of the act and the passages damaging the trades and bilateral work that co-exists between the United States and Russia. They have never been true allies, only in need during the Second World War, ever since the Communists and the Americans has been enemies. Therefore today’s statements from the White House strikes out as strange!

The one written in old fonts looking like a typewriter says:

While I favor tough measures to punish and deter aggressive and destabilizing behavior by Iran, North Korea, and Russia, this legislation is significantly flawed”. Than, he continues to blast the part of Russia in the law: “My Administration will give careful and respectful consideration to the preference expressed by the Congress in these various provisions and will implement them in a manner consistent with the President’s constitutional authority to conduct foreign relations” (…) “Finally, my Administration particularly expects the Congress to refrain from using this flawed bill to hinder our important work with European allies to resolve the conflict in Ukraine, and from using it to hinder our efforts to address any unintended consequences it may have for American business, our friends, or our allies”.

It is hard to believe that the U.S. Government under President Trump cares about the turmoil and conflict in Ukraine, as the ties to Moscow and Russia are so close. That is why the President calls these sanctions flawed, since the Capitol Hill already voted in majority that Trump couldn’t veto. The President might have disliked the whole sanctions, but he didn’t complain about the 700 people losing their jobs in Russia. As the Diplomatic Staff are removed as the Russian addressed the new sanctions with counter measures. But even with this the President didn’t complain. Not like he did to others like Nordstrom dropping Ivanka’s clothing-line or Meryl Streep’s aggressive speech and so on. The benign things has been addressed like the ratings of Apprentice with Arnold Schwarzenegger, who even got canceled. Still, this shows his mindset that he cannot attack or talk vicious of Russia or Putin, but everyone else. Like he address Senators or Representatives for either parties bad, until he needs their votes for his cause.

But before I start bickering more, here is important parts of Russian obsessions:

I also support making clear that America will not tolerate interference in our democratic process and that we will side with our allies and friends against Russian subversion and destabilization” (…) “Yet despite its problems, I am signing this bill for the sake of national unity. It represents the will of the American people to see Russia take steps to improve relations with the United States. We hope there will be cooperation between our two countries on major global issues so that these sanctions will no longer be necessary” (…) “I built a truly great company worth many billions of dollars. That is a big part of the reasons I was elected. As President, I can make far better deals with foreign countries than Congress”.

Than as we look into the second statement that was fierce against the Congress. He even lectured them on the Russian sanctions. Since Trump believes he could make better deals than the Congress. So he has issues with the interference into the democratic process, he says so in the statement, but still wants to take steps into improving the relations. This proves that he wants to work closer to the Russians, even if he himself states they interfered. He also, wants to find a common ground to stop the problems between the nations, so that the American government can forgive what the Russians did during the last years election.

Than in the latest he has to state about his Trump Organization and his deal-making, that he believes he could do better than the Congress. Since the Congress put the sanctions in place and that hurt the relationship with Russia. One that President Trump wants to keep. It is strange that President Trump sounds like the Russians today on the Sanctions, just Mikhail Bogdanov said on the 1st August:

“You know our position, these actions are absolutely unlawful, they do not help reach an understanding and the necessary level of trust between us and the Americans,” the senior Russian diplomat pointed out” (…) “This is sad, it affects our bilateral relations [with the United States – TASS],” Bogdanov went on to say. “I think that it does not add optimism regarding the possibility for us to coordinate our approaches towards a whole range of regional issues, including our relations with such important partner and neighbor as Iran,” he added” (Tass, 01.08.2017, link: http://tass.com/politics/958614).

So even he call it unlawful and it’s sad. Just like Trump said, but in other words. Russian President Vladimir Putin also spoke his peace after the votes and said this:

The president explained why response measures have been taken now. “Because the American side once again made an absolutely ungrounded, which is important, step to deteriorate the Russian-US relations, imposing illegal restrictions and trying to press other countries, including its allies, which are interested in the development and maintaining of relations with Russia,” he said, obviously referring to the US bill toughening the anti-Russian sanctions. “We have been waiting for quite a long time for any positive changes [in the United States’ attitudes to Russia], we have hoped that the situation will change somehow. But, to all appearances, even if it ever changes, it will not be soon,” he said in an interview with VGTRK host Vladimir Solovyov. “I thought we must demonstrate that we are not going to leave anything unanswered either” (TASS, 30.07.2017, link: http://tass.com/politics/958347).

So when President Trump doesn’t answer this and get’s insulted for the whole world to know. Than days later answer with two half-ass apology statements. There is something wrong in that picture. That the relationship between Trump Organization and Russia is destroying the relations. While Russia can answer the sanctions and apply clear stance on the subject. President Trump was silent. Said nothing and commented on other subjects. He didn’t even sign the bill. Trump even waited three days after the Putin televised interview.

Trump hopes this bill is a sign of Russian create a better relations between the nations and cooperate. The President also hopes the sanctions wont be necessary. The same that the Russian also says, but they have to say it, because they hurt the Russians. These sanctions doesn’t hurt Americans, but it hurts Trump’s relations. If Russia wasn’t important, he would have gone wild on them and kicked them on Twitter in a heart-beat. Like he done to China when talking about the problems in North Korea. Peace.

Zimbabwe: Open battles between the Police and the Army in Harare!

As President Robert Mugabe are falling asleep on stage and everyone listens to his younger wife “Gucci Gucci” Grace Mugabe. There is something in the air, as civil rights activists and others are detained and harassed for their civil disobedience and acts against state oppression. But there is turn of events, that gives hope. Since the state is becoming more fragile.

Today, there been reported that Soldiers roamed the Harare Central Business District and beat-up Police Officers, they followed the Police officers into shops and gave them a beating. They also gave beating with sticks and whips.

This can be seen as a sign of the deteriorating rule of law and next step into lawlessness, which has been created by the state. The way the Zanu-PF have eaten it all and centered around Mugabe. But now that he is disappearing, the law and the reckless behavior can start. Since his totalitarian authority is losing its grip. Together with weak economy and less stable society. The inner-state and security organization are trying to show who is supreme. Today was a retaliation after Police attacked the military car.

Still, the roots of this comes from Mugabe and Zanu-PF who hasn’t set the standard and hasn’t created a society where this is unacceptable. Where the law hasn’t been followed, but more just for the ones who cannot afford to bribe or pay themselves out. The cronyism and the legislator has been based on the needs of Zanu-PF, and not on the needs of the Republic.

That is why and there are many other reasons, but the lack of institutions and state procedure, is the reasons for acts of this kind. Where the people are taking laws into their own hands, since they cannot trust the provisions and the sanctions of the state to act. That is why the soldiers retaliated and wanted the uniformed Police in Harare CBD to suffer, just for a little moment. So they could feel “justice”. Even if this wasn’t done after any code or statute. They felt this was right.

When you can reason it out this way, you know something is wrong. Some parts of state is missing. The security and law is dwindling, disappearing, becoming extinct, when the army goes after the police. Nothing in a scenario is correct, unless one of the parts where trying to overthrow a government without public will for either military or political gain. To create another military state, instead of the one built around the cult of Mugabe.

This might be sign of the troubles coming, but we would wish of more lawfulness and not anarchy. But when the army attacks the police. It shows a sign of failure of the state and the troubles to come… This might be the only… but who knows at this point right? Peace.

The Killings of Nkaissery and Msando: Leaves many stones unturned!

When Cabinet Secretary of Interior Joseph Ole Nkaissery, the whole timeline and acts of his last day went silent. Nevertheless, before the smoke from the fire settled the Jubilee government had his successor Dr. Fred Matiang’i was on the doorsteps proudly presented before even the President and his deputy had visited, paid dues or showed respect to the late people’s families.

Now again, the sinister acts are approaching, as ICT Manager in the IEBC Chris Msando, who went missing and suddenly ended in the morgue, with no one seeing, hearing or recollecting anything of the foul acts against him. His car were left behind in another part of town and his body was taken from the forest to City Mortuary, without anyone seeing it or registering it.

Therefore, this weekend from Friday, he went missing and no one knew anything. Saturday night his car was found in Roysambu ward in Karasani, Nairobi. While his body Kikuyu, Kiambe, which is another part town before suddenly with the wind taken to the Mortuary without any trace. On Monday, the revelation of his body and his possible became known, as he was even missing an arm and proof of struggle. Certainly, someone wished upon the ICT man a painful death.

We can just imagine and wonder what is the next sinister move from these ruthless and reckless individuals, who secretly and in the dark kills top officials? Since both Nkaissery and Msando went away very fast. Whatever happened at Bomas the night of the late CS have not been revealed yet and neither has the cameras following the Land Rover of Msando during this weekend. The questionable assassinations of these individuals, together with previous extra-judicial killings, really spark a fire in the dire need valuating human lives. Since it seems so easy to get rid of top-officials while the criminals are roaming the streets.

There will be many more pressers, more statements and more allegations, as the collateral damage, the sad life of Caro Ngumbu a resident of Kiambu, this was the unknown killed woman beside Msando. It is just a tragic loss of yet another life; another person lost her time, because of someone’s will extend power by any means. The officials are to intimidate and take control of certain aspects before the election.

Either the killing of Nkaissery, is to have a loyal and puppet in control of the security. So that the military and police can act as they please, instead of the hardheaded orders of Nkaissery. Who would use all means and use the methods he saw fit for control and not let the security organizations control him.

That raises the question as if it are planning to rig the election and the electronic or digital voting system that Msando put in place. Therefore, to be able to rig it now and if they wanted to change the formula in time, they had to silence and get rid of him. Since he was the brain behind the KIEMs and wanted to make sure, no dead person could vote or no one could vote twice. If they did not fear his system or approach and could interfere, they would have let the man be.

The possible breaches of the system is there, the lack of trust between opposition and many voters are apparent. Because they see the death and the silence of the government on these matters. The unresolved cold-cases of extra-judicial killings, which are killing-spree for go-lucky assassins.

The international condemnation are just another statute, that does not solve anything, unless Scotland and the FBI or any sort Interpol actually must up some people investigating these sinister crimes. Since the Police Service of Kenya, are letting them go, because they fear what they will find.

There is smoke and there is fire. What the investigators will find and what the cause of the matter, other than intimidation and control of the ICT at the IEBC at a crucial time before the General Election. Who knows what more is hidden in the shadows, I do not know, but with certainty that it is more than meet the eye. The same feeling I had when Nkaissery went as well, since his pivotal role was suddenly diminished and with no forewarning.

There is just a week until the polls, but the questions might not be answered until long after the ballots are cast. However, what is needed is reassurance and reflections of the dire situation, where high-ranking state officials die with clear answers to their demise. Peace
