Well, ladies and gentleman the super-power called the United States of America, is a dying dinosaur that Michael Moore or even Jay-Z doesn’t have the power to change. Today was a shock for many, even for me as the American Electorate decided to elect a Demagogue of ill-rhetoric towards certain ethnic groups like the Latin-American, Women and so-on. Donald Trump in his power and commander-in-chief will remarkably create havoc.
All of this is well known, but what the United States’ citizens didn’t think about when they voted against the establishment on protest against the D.C. power-structure they voted for a man with certain traits that can put certain pieces of the Government into shambles. So before I start; for those of you who don’t know, here is the definition of a banana republic!
“It was coined in a 1904 book of fiction by O. Henry, an American writer. Henry (whose real name was William Sydney Porter) was on the run from Texan authorities, who had charged him with embezzlement” (…) “His phrase neatly conjures up the image of a tropical, agrarian country. But its real meaning is sharper: it refers to the fruit companies from the United States that came to exert extraordinary influence over the politics of Honduras and its neighbours. By the end of the 19th century, Americans had grown sick of trying to grow fruit in their own chilly country. It was sweeter and cheaper by far to import it instead from the warmer climes of Central America, where bananas and other fruit grow quickly. Giants such as the United Fruit Company—an ancestor of Chiquita—moved in and built roads, ports and railways in return for land. In 1911 the Cuyamel Fruit Company, another American firm (which was later bought by United), supplied the weapons for a coup against the government of Honduras, and prospered under the newly installed president. In 1954 America’s Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) backed a coup against the government of Guatemala, which had threatened the interests of United. (Historians still debate whether the CIA’s motive was to protect United or, as many now believe, to nip Communism in the bud.) Hence the real meaning of a “banana republic”: a country in which foreign enterprises push the government around” (The Economist, 2013).
Why do I believe this, it’s because of all his sort-of promises over the months. There is all kind of activities that proves the clear indications of a Banana Republic on the rise. The Americans might think otherwise, that is because there are blind on how the state really is.
“The United States recorded a Government Debt to GDP of 104.17 percent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product in 2015. Government Debt to GDP in the United States averaged 61.94 percent from 1940 until 2015, reaching an all time high of 121.70 percent in 1946 and a record low of 31.70 percent in 1974. Government Debt to GDP in the United States is reported by the U.S. Bureau of Public Debt” (Trading Economics).
So the average debt level or ratio is staggering already. This is not tackled because the creditors accept the debt levels are raising, just as seen with the numbers from Trading Economics are showing during 30 years the percentage has gone up over 70 %, which should be frightening to any economy. When you have that level of debt, you should be able to have a heavy tax-base to collect and pay the debt.
Taxing under Trump:
“US taxes are low relative to those in other developed countries. In 2012, US taxes at all levels of government represented 24 percent of GDP, compared with an average of 34 percent of GDP for the 34 member countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)” (…) “The United States collects relatively less revenue dedicated to retirement, disability, and other social security programs—22 percent of total tax revenue—than the 26 percent OECD average” (…) “Property taxes provided more than twice as large a share of US tax revenue—12 percent in 2012—than the OECD average of 5 percent. Almost all revenue from taxes on property in the United States is collected by state and local governments” (…) “The United States relies less on taxes on goods and services (including both general consumption taxes and taxes on specific goods and services) than any other OECD country, collecting 18 percent of tax revenue this way compared with 33 percent for the OECD. The value-added tax (VAT)—a type of general consumption tax collected in stages—is the main source of consumption tax revenue, employed worldwide in 160 countries including all 34 OECD member countries except the United States. Most consumption tax revenue in the United States is collected by state and local governments” (Hoo & Toder, 2006).
So when the Federal and Republic itself has such a giant debt ratio, the taxes should be high and should be to the levels of actually having the ability to pay it back. As they do not even have VAT on goods that is very normal world-wide, but apparently isn’t a thing in the United States. This proves the mismanagement of potential tax-base that the Government need to succeed to pay their debt. This is before the Election yesterday.
This is the taxes planned under Trump: “According to the Tax Foundation’s Taxes and Growth Model, the plan would reduce federal revenue by between $4.4 trillion and $5.9 trillion on a static basis. The amount depends on the nature of a key business policy provision” (…) “After accounting for the larger economy and the broader tax base, the plan would reduce revenues by between $2.6 trillion and $3.9 trillion after accounting for the larger economy, depending on the nature of a key policy provision” (…) “On a static basis, the Trump tax plan would increase the after-tax incomes of taxpayers in every income group. The bottom 80 percent of taxpayers (those in the bottom four quintiles) would see an increase in after-tax income between 0.8 percent and 1.9 percent, under both policy assumptions. Taxpayers in the top quintile would see a 4.4 percent increase in after-tax income under the higher-rate assumption, or 8.7 percent under the lower-rate assumption. Those in the top decile would see a 5.4 percent increase in after-tax income under the higher-rate assumption, or 9.3 percent under the lower-rate assumption. Finally, taxpayers in the top 1 percent would see the largest increase in after-tax income on a static basis, driven by both the lower top marginal tax rate and the lower corporate income tax. Under the higher-rate assumption this increase would be 10.2 percent, and under the lower-rate assumption this increase would be 16.0 percent” (Cole, 2016).
So when the government are axing it income, while the economy running on a deficit your making no-sense. Your continue to spend on deficit while cutting taxes; the taxed ones are the ones who voted for Trump, the bottom 80% will get higher taxes, while corporations and 1% riches will get less. So the richer will get richer. A real proof of a Banana Republic where the solidarity towards the ones who needs so. They who voted for him is the ones that will pay on his tax-plan, which is ironic.
This is on the direct economic sense, now on health care. Here he proves again he will hurt the ones who voted for him, the poor and what is left of the working-class:
“The policies would cause almost 21 million people to lose their insurance coverage, as the replacement health care policies would only cover 5 percent of the 22 million individuals who would lose coverage upon the repeal of Obamacare. This would almost double the number of Americans without health insurance” (…) “The largest component of this estimate comes from the “repeal.” The campaign website proposes to “completely repeal Obamacare,” which we assume to mean repealing the Affordable Care Act’s regulations, subsidies, Medicaid expansion, Medicare savings, and tax increases. Although repealing the coverage provisions would save about $1.1 trillion, based on Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates (adjusted for recent legislation and changes in the budget window), repealing the legislation’s tax increases and Medicare cuts would cost a combined $1.6 trillion. In total, this means repeal would cost $480 billion – or $260 billion including the economic benefits of repeal” (Committee for a responsible Federal Budget, 2016).
So the Trump Administration are planning to hurt their own, the ones that has gotten through the Obamacare gotten some sorts of subsidized medical insurance, something he wants to repeal and will even make sure to cost the state more. So the educated minds will know that people has to carry insurance on their own while the state pays more to abolish the Obamacare. The 21 million individuals will regret questioning the medical treatment through Obamacare, as the Federal State will add more money. So the people are getting higher tax for the same 80% who losing their health insurance. Do the American citizens prefer punishing themselves?
As with the true implications of NAFTA:
“Customs duties reductions led to increases in trade with the other two countries of 11% in Canada, 41% in the United States, and 118% in Mexico, for the period between 1993 and 2011.5 In terms of value, American trade with Canada and Mexico increased from US$481 billion in 1993 to US$1.1 trillion in 2015. While Donald Trump claims that Americans “don’t make anything anymore,” implying that NAFTA is to blame, the American manufacturing sector has increased production by 58% since the deal came into effect” (Bedard, 2016).
So the results of NAFTA are apparently different in reality than what comes across when coming to Trump, so the reality hasn’t mattered. He wants to dissolve or change the rules and regulations, this will make it harder to export and import products between Canada and Mexico into the United States. The United States need free-movement of products and industrial products to be able to have the Corporate Capitalism that drives the USA.
So with lower taxes in general, a higher cost of health-care without concern for the 21 million without health insurance. They now are getting more problems with exporting and importing the needed products and raw-material has been possible and even at longest part of the NAFTA agreement has been positive to the US. So the regulation and cooperation with neighbours will be harder because of barriers that will be created with abolishing the NAFTA.
This is still all economic implications… then you have the gun-control, the war-lord aspects and the other social policies mixed with the economic aspect that turns the ones giant and great nation into tatters, if the President Donald Trump gets to do as he pleases without questions.
We should consider it with the implication on the policies and the foreign affairs. The US Government would lose with their plans on playing hardball with NATO and others. With the Muslims ban and deportation, also the Latin-American population that has been singled out; these groups can hurt the economy and also the basic workforce who does the needed services needed in society. That these will be sent out because of their ethnicity and faith will also prove that the United States isn’t the leaders of free-world, but another tyranny under President Trump. The fear and loathing of the Republican President Trump! That will do like the Americans did during Second World-War when Japanese for being so we’re detained into camps, or if he pleases send them packing.
This racial laws and deportations will hurt the economy and make sure the state becomes a Banana Republic; What is special is that the United States will have a free-flow of guns, ammunition, but will make it harder to import goods and also export goods with worse deals, have lesser taxes, still high debt yield and add expenses on health-care while the citizens has to cover themselves. This while the US President hasn’t a plan to help lower-classes as the minimum-pay or salaries increase for the 80% who still get added tax, also pay more for health care. The US Electorate got all reasons for feeling foolish if they even read this.
Bananas and Banana Company we’re President William Howard Taft did what he could to save the companies. Now the new President might try to replicate this, but he forgets the needed international community and production as the needed bolts, tools and manufacturing are inter-connected. That is something that the modern day President Trump needs.
Side Note – International Partnerships:
So if he builds walls, gets into whiny bitch mode and becomes a fully-blown attack paranoid mode, than the international partners will not accept being constantly bullied. I am sure that Philippines C-I-C President Rodigro Duterte will be tossed around for another power or human being. Neither will Russian President Vladimir Putin and even German Chancellor Angela Merkel will not accept it. So the price of him being brash and irresponsible thin-skinned versus the ones that questions his actions or words, isn’t really suitable with the trading partners and allies that the U.S. still needs. The US doesn’t live in a vacuum and not the only one with a giant defence and has much money to spend like on AGOA and others.
So congratulation on becoming a Banana-Republic, ready to become muffled with after playing king-pin… for decades; as your economic prospects under the Trump Administration and regime doesn’t look healthy. Peace.

It’s been a weird timeline for this American Presidential Election, the months upon months with madness and craziness. The undetermined now have either looked to many times at Friends, Game of Thrones or even browsed quickly at Fox and CNN; still not able to make a decision who to cast their vote for un Tuesday 8th November 2016.
There been Primary race in the major parties, the Republican Party with the wildest and biggest amount of candidates, where 16 candidates went in and tried. Some familiar faces other local heroes trying to figure out how to become a National Candidate. The ones standing out was Jeb Bush, who had to become JEB! Because his family name isn’t ringing out with joy as it did before Bill Clinton, those we’re the days. Than you had Marco Rubio, the Florida man who robotic answers made the automatic telephone answer-machine obsolete for little while. Than you had Ted Cruz, the Texan who with coded language tried to sound friendly, but just seemed interested in his own career over policy; you had John Kasich from Ohio who seemed sincere and like a fellow from the Mitt Romney and John McCain wing of the Republican Party, but he went hard and continued without any tally of results.
Than you had the Democratic Party where there we’re fewer candidates and there was more or less two candidates that had a significant amounts of people behind them. You had the Governor of Maryland Martin O’Malley, I am sure the man is a decent and kind fellow, but he didn’t grab attention or attraction as the competitors owned the field. The one that we’re close and can still make difference is Bernie Sanders the Senator of Vermont. In the Primaries he we’re a real threat and showed how he could garn popularity with Millennials and get small donations from people and not the giant multi-national corporations. Not building a super-PAC, but still making sense of policies, political framework and how to build society. He still one 22 states in the Primaries and we’re a serious contender with a strong message. Should be remembering his fight against the internal-system and electoral machine from his competitor who had loyalist in the Central leadership of the Democratic National Committee.
So now with this, there are two candidates left: Donald J. Trump from the Republican Party and Hillary Clinton of the Democratic Party. Other candidates are Jill Stein of the Green Party and Gary Johnson of the Libertarians. Jill Stein at one point thought Wi-Fi was a treat to kids and said she deserves the Bernie Sanders votes. Also that she is the one to vote for instead of lesser of two evils (Trump and Clinton). Gary Johnson will be remembered for not being able to answer on MSNBC Morning Joe, what Aleppo and who Aleppo is. So the Foreign Affairs hasn’t been key importance for the Libertarians as they are focused on spliffs, little state, more personal freedom and a strong army. Something that would enforce the undoubted republicans to vote for Johnson as a protest this year; might be might be not, but he might gain more than normally.
Now that we’re days before the polls, the ballots casted and final tallies in all the states, the 270 Electoral Votes and the whole Electoral College is secured. We still have the final race to the finish line. Initially this race is between Trump and Clinton.
Trump, he is rare character of orange hatred, patriotism and notorious chauvinism and racism. As an outsider it’s weird that Republicans went for this man and accept this. This blended with his attitude and his brash words against anybody; his nonchalant of fluid morality towards others. While he can crucify fellow peers for their maladministration’s and wrong doings, he will never ever accept that he has done the same and crossed the line. His flabbergasting rhetoric on immigration, woman and media has been out of this world. Sounding more like a power-hungry dictator than a man whose plan is to restructure America. His personality and decisions has cared more about getting more spotlight than making sure that his vision comes clear. If he believes the words he says and if any significant plan of any kind has if he gets into office can be unsure of. Seemingly it seems more important with the title and winning than actually making a difference. Together with his brawls and attacks on peers, fellow Republican Senators, House Speaker Paul Ryan and others shows the inability of even working together with his own. Trump has to own the spotlight and be KING. If not it doesn’t matter. AS long as he is King, even if the Palace is bailing out, the golden letters with his name is fading and his stars are built with giant walls around them. Still, the thing that matters to Trump isn’t working-class families in Wisconsin or Michigan; it’s his ego and his reputation.
Then it’s Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Presidential Candidate who has been doing this before and lost to Barrack Obama, back in the day and has been a Senator for New York and Secretary of State at one point. She has been flogged in public, by certain stations been named so reckless and destructive at one point the only missing flaw per today: is that was the main reason behind World War III. Not that she has a perfect record, but when you been in public light and in office all your life you got to have some bad apples and made mistakes. Hillary Clinton carries them and even answered for why she has changed opinion. Trump would say, “Where did you get that? That wasn’t me? Do you have the tape?” He would deflect it. Not that Hillary hasn’t had enough trouble, for instance with the internal releases of E-Mail’s leaks from WikiLeaks, Guccifer and DCLeaks. They have leaked information through the cycle that has showed how the Campaign Team and Clinton Foundation have not been ethical correct or been correct. They have used methods and used money in questionable ways, even fraudulent. That is a fact and not fiction. That she can’t trust the American Public to show gratitude for her service is clear as she couldn’t even ask for silence and relaxation as she had pneumonia during the Campaigns. Than the Republican media nearly said she had AIDS and dying; by the way called her deceiving for it as well. That proves how hard they tackle her grievances. Instead of asking why she was sick and why she didn’t want to release the information, the American Media went into a frenzy attacking her personality. Which shows what kind of Corporate case of misjudgement and attitude towards her.
With this all in mind, with the statements and character flaws that are in play together with the public sphere, the electoral laws in the 50 states and with the decades of elitism. In this day and age, in this time and with the coming problems together with ones we are piling up today, what kind of leadership does the United States of America need?
Do they need a hot-headed, non-sequential policy based and self-promoting snake-oil salesman on the top of the food-chain in nation and serve them with some form dignity, if that dignity is believable. That will only be believable if he uses as much time on the golf-course as George W. Bush, Donald Trump can only be functioning if he tries to have camps with Sheiks to donate funds to US if he serves them halal-parties at Camp David. I cannot see him making sense of public policy like Barrack Obama or even the former War-Lord Dick Cheney; at least he could be able to make sense of the statements coming out of his mouth.
We can all question if the Hillary Clinton, the moderate, Wall-Street infused and money hungry Politician is the right one as well. She isn’t demoralising or counter-aggressive. She has posted herself as Progressive, but that isn’t true. Hillary is so moderate that she can fall in-between certain wings of Republican Party and Democratic Party. Bi-Partisanship will be thing under wings for sure. Her real stance on matters is something we can wonder as the leaks showed that much of groundwork and policies made by her team not by her own making. They have all been suggestion by close aides and surrogates while she has been on the road reading from a teleprompter. The last piece should Trump do to, he sound like Drunk Uncle so often… how can the Drunk Uncle all of sudden become the Command-in-Chief; it’s not funny. Especially for an outsider to see how degraded the democratic process has become in the US as they get this guy to counter a Political Opponent the way he does. That Clinton becomes Crooked Hillary and it’s been the sticker from Trump. The pathetic smear campaign to weaken her, instead of looking at facts… facts and fiction has been nearly the same, Clinton has gotten tainted with old sins, and sins she couldn’t commit and couldn’t even do. She created ISIS, she killed somebody while Bill Clinton was in Office, she had Alien intervention in her body, and she has a deadly infection and so on. Clinton has been targeted for the machine she has created.
It’s true she has gotten wealthy on Wall Street money and used a weird company in Cincinnati on an estate that got 250,000 LLC’s on the compound. That is true and that isn’t something she should have. Her husband been a con and a man-whore at some point, but that isn’t her fault; that’s the sins of Bill and he has to carry.
Trump on the other hand has used mafia to build his tower, not paid taxes for decades, not cared for paying employees and contractors, stifled monies from even campaign pollsters during his Presidential Campaign, reckless behaviour of litigations, sued for fraud countless times, used donations to his Foundations to buy private luxurious merchandize, running a University and enrolling students without proper State Educational Licences and so on. That is without cherry-picking his marriages, his womanizing and his acts of fidelity and forged public persona.
So that a man who has that towards the other one, shows how simple it should be to pick; but the United States population seems to be drawn by the scandals of the FBI and others who carries into weight without having any significant records of forcing through new investigations. The public perception with the constant leaks has hurt Clinton and that deservedly, but still the other guy isn’t really a catch. The Clinton mistake is systematic and organic, the Trump mistakes is deceiving and inappropriate.
I wonder if the United States wants to become a laughing stock and not be the man who helps out with their armies and their structures. With Trump as President should the United Nation Headquarters still be there; when you have a man who wishes to deteriorate the foreign affairs, the relationship between trading-partners and allies in the NATO. Does the United States wanted to be so internally focused in the image of Trump that they will be internal focused and only thinking of his best, not the great American Best. That comes in second fiddle kind of like Ariana Grande comes second to Beyoncé.
A federal judge out of New Jersey has ordered Trump Campaign and Trump to explain his prejudice against the Elections and the possibility of a rigged election. Something that he has claimed for a while and he took actions after the surrogates and even Vice Presidential Candidate Mike Pence has gone into defence. Therefore Federal Judge of New Jersey John Michael Vazguez ordered his team to deliver affidavits, testimonies or oral proof of rigged allegations. This before the final days of voting, before the last day of casting the ballots and the Election Day!
Here is the outtake of the Court Order of New Jersey:
“ORDERED that Defendant shall produce to Plaintiff the following no later than 5:00p m EST November 2 2016 and file on the docket. All agreements in any form between Defendant and the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump the “Trump Campaign” regarding voter fraud ballot security, ballot integrity, poll watching, or poll monitoring. If the agreements are verbal or oral or otherwise not reduce to writing, then Defendant shall submit an affidavit of a person or persons with personal knowledge of such agreements. The person’s shall be an agent, servant, or employee of Defendant. The affidavit s shall set forth all material terms of any such agreement, including any geographic areas which are being targeted for the voter fraud, ballot security, ballot integrity. Poll watching, or poll monitoring efforts and the reason’s those areas are being targeted”
“An affidavit or affidavits by a person or persons with personal knowledge setting forth in detail Defendant’s efforts with the Trump Campaign to work with state governments and secretaries of state to ensure “ballot integrity” as indicated by Governor Mike Pence on or about August 3 2016”.
“An affidavit or affidavits by person or persons with personal knowledge setting forth in detail Defendant’s efforts with the Trump Campaign to monitor precincts around the country as indicated by Kellyanne Conway on or about October 21 2016”.
“An affidavit or affidavits by person or persons with personal knowledge setting forth in detail the efforts of RNC member, Rob Gleason, to recruit persons to act as poll watchers in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania”
Ronna Romney McDaniel:
“An affidavit or affidavits by a person or persons with personal knowledge setting forth in detail the efforts of RNC member Ronna Romney McDaniel, to prepare a massive state wide anti-voter fraud effort in Michigan”.
“ORDERED that as to its emergent motion Plaintiff’s reply to Defendant’s opposition shall be submitted on the docket no later than 5:00 p m EST on Thursday November 3 l6; it is further
ORDERED that oral argument is scheduled at 10:00a m EST on Friday November 4 2016”
This here set precedence for the Campaign, as a result to the hammering against the American Election system and the way the Election Districts are set up. This is against all the different election laws in the various states in the United States of America. The Election Laws differ and make it complicated as of registration, getting election ID and all the other necessary things needed before doing the civic duty of casting the ballot for the Presidential Election.
So this Court Order is important, not that there hasn’t been questionable actions in US Election in the past, but I cannot remember a time and place where a Campaign Team and Presidential Candidate has proclaimed before the ballots are casted. Even before the tally of the votes been registered and even before the Supreme Court has tested and recounted questionable Election Districts in Close states. That the Election Rigging claims have surfaced. Something that sounds like gimmick and using the final fear-tactic from a Campaign that uses all sorts of tactics to win, not for the system, but for their own gain! This is something that has always been the case for Donald Trump and his businesses.
So that a Court of New Jersey goes to this step, proves the crazy ride that been the American Election this year. That somebody like Donald Trump could become a Republican Presidential Candidate and also be such a figure in the race, shows some fearful prospects of current state of internal affairs in the United States. If it would be Marco Rubio or one of the other candidates the view of US would be more clean and healthy. The sickness of something so vicious, so brash and bashing fearful has been out of question, but is now mainstream thanks to Trump. Those together with conspiracy theories like this Court Order try to settle and silence. So, we can hope that the Trump Campaign with Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Kellyanne Conway, Rob Gleason and Ronna Romney McDaniel can offer some explanation to the allegations and crimes, voter frauds and such so the evident crimes and people behind the rigged can answer for themselves! Peace.
PS: If they cannot prove it or explain the allegations, could he please shut up! If he has grievances like I do for the Florida 2000 Elections that gave George W. Bush the victory in the State, than say that; don’t say this one unless you have something to prove at-least!
BTW: I am far from a fan of both George W. Bush and Donald J. Trump. Therefore No mixed messages and hope that Clinton wins, not that her track-record is beautiful, but anything is better than TRUMP!
United States DISTRICT COURT DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY – ‘Civil Action No. 1-03876 – John Michael Vazguez, U.S.D.J’ (31.10.2016)
For those of you who really think you will learn something new or see a vibrant new candidate on the podium. You have forgotten the format and the ways these Presidential Candidate Debate fits the ratings and the ways of gaining most viewers. This isn’t for the greater good of democracy; this is a battle for advertisement revenue for the current TV Station and Media House. This is the bloody America where everyone supposed to be able to push blood out of stone.
Donald Trump, the so-called billionaire and brash vomit will be broadcasted worldwide where more lies and inaccuracies than ever before. It will be like watching the Telly on ‘V for Vendetta’. Oh gee, the grand house of political heroes has fallen into bread and circus instead of professing into the governance and accountability. But if accountability matters the so-called billionaire might have drop more key paperwork and not just spoken unaccounted for his business in the past and how he has paid the tax-man.
Hillary Clinton, the political refugee and one who cannot hide the shade of Bernie Sanders. The lingering of shadow of husband Bill Clinton and all her years in Senate and even as Minister of State still has scalps. Not like her counterpart who claims to know more than generals, Hillary Clinton’s weakness is her weak program and rhetoric together with the solid bank-account after years in the civil service. While the Foundation of Clinton’s are being scrutinized and might done things on wrong accord, the same can be said by the Trump Foundation.
This race is not about morals, wealth, character, hope, progress, longevity or stability. This Presidential Campaign is about redemption. The Redemption of the two-party system of United States, if the people still believes in it. Because the candidates are both disgusting in different ways; Clinton though by a giant leap better than Trump, but that is not a feat! Clinton would be better by just breathing and that says more about the opponent than about her.
So for those of you who think you will be wise by the show and the Presidential Debate, you won’t if you didn’t know that Donald Trump lies and thinks he can fix an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) with only a toothpick and Swiss-Army Knife; while he will claim he does it better than the inventor of it John Stevens. On the other hand Hillary Clinton will be more organized and careful with her words; still addressing Trump on his inaccuracies and even be clear on how unfit he might be.
I know many won’t agree and by all means I accept it. Trump is an asshole and he has graced his son with the same dreadful traits of inhumanity. Clinton has the polished career politician and therefore need to show some flex, but she will not show anything new. Unless she tears a giant whole in the pride of Trump and his so-called achievements; Trump cannot be brasher, racial biased, and political incorrect or careless than he has already been unless he actually shows his ‘peacock’ to the nation on live broadcast. That is what is missing!
So enjoy watching a ‘Show about Nothing’ where the broadcast is eating your life and these candidates wouldn’t’ say something new unless Gary Johnson, Jill Stein or Deez Nuts we’re showing up to pretend like Tinashe that she is as important as Beyoncé. Peace.
“How did we get here? It’s easy to forget. In the debut episode of his new series, “The Closer,” GQ’s Keith Olbermann tallies the most outrageous of Donald Trump’s offenses in what is now his 15-month assault on American democracy.” (GQ, 2016)
I cannot sit on the side-line while the Republican Party, their Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump and his loyal cadres are dismissing the ‘basket of deplorable’ comment. That Donald Trump is now saying Hillary Clinton is showing contempt for the American citizens and voters is hilarious. It shouldn’t be because the whole scenario is messy and clearly what extent this election cycle has boiled down to.
The Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton gets slammed for this, righteously so; still she can justify her comment as there are connections to vicious groups and ideas that Donald Trump never has tried to take a stand against. Donald Trump loves praise and the men and woman who praises him is great people, while the ones criticizing him are the worst and with time there is a few. Even former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has called him a “con-man” and he is not alone. So Trump doesn’t say nice things anymore about the billionaire Bloomberg.
Trump has called Clinton any name you can mention. The Man has never showed any tact or humility. He has called Mexicans of people rapists. Trump wants to ban Muslims because of their faith. Build a wall to stop immigration from Mexico. Trump has claimed an Indiana judge to be Mexican therefore he couldn’t make a valid decision in his court-case. When asked about it and if an African-American judge wouldn’t judge correctly if they got a one of his court-cases.
Trump has said that John McCain wasn’t a War-Hero for being captured, because you aren’t a hero if you are captured. Trump got question by the Khan’s, the Gold-Star family who he answered with: “Mr. Khan, who does not know me, viciously attacked me from the stage of the DNC and is now all over T.V. doing the same – Nice!” So it’s nice to bark and hassle with the families that lost their sons and daughters for the safety and believing building buildings and businesses – thinking that is sacrifice comparing that to the families that sacrifices the most sacred thing they have with their own family members.
Trump has claimed that Clinton’s have killed people in 1980s and used the Clinton Foundation wrong. While he has used the mafia to build his Trump Tower and also used his own foundation to buy a Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi right before the AG of Florida wanted to join the New York AG to act upon the case against the Trump University and that fraud case. The Trump Foundation paid right before the case got cancelled by the AG. Just a coincidence in the world of Trump… While the Trump Foundation has been caught paying for private time with Tennis Player Serena Williams and Personal Painting of himself. That is something Clinton Foundation wouldn’t do, no matter how shady the business of Clinton Foundation are.
Trump shouldn’t say that Clinton has contempt for voters and American citizens. She even apologized and said there we’re attempt of connected with deplorable ideas and people in the camp of Trump; which is true and cannot be dined. Trump hasn’t apologised, he never really apologised to Fox News Megyn Kelly who had “blood out of her wherever” when she was asking hard question at a Republican Debate. The interview after was more slick nonsense than actually manning up for the chauvinistic words from Trump.
Writing these words about his racial and unworthy words is sadly to easy, there are too much to capture. The Breitbart Steve Bannon also has a past and has now taken over for Lewandowski and Manafort. The Trump campaign will be even more Alt-Right, more despair and less hope as the making “America Great Again” hitting the ground and not really running.
The fearmongering and alternative political crass bitchiness of Trump will continue as he even more than once claimed Clinton using the “woman card” like it was Monopoly and that we’re the only card to avoid jail. The unserious and determined Trump continues to brashly attack Clinton. When he shouldn’t address her for words against his supporters; that is just ignorance. But the crowd of Trump is ignorant filled with many Racists, White-Supremacists, Birther’s movement and so on.
Trump is holding all the other ordinary voters and citizens with contempt for how he has flip-flopped and how he doesn’t release vital information while proclaiming former candidates for the same actions. That he doesn’t have the courage to release the IRS Tax Returns or even a real statement from a Doctor where things are not all positive. Trump doesn’t have it in to act real or being honest a reason why Bloomberg and his business-connections in New York is calling Trump a ‘Con-Man’.
Trump has tried to Con people before, he did it with Trump University, Trump Mortgage, Trump Institute, Trump Network and so on. So many licenced projects where he has stifled people and reasons why he has over 3000 court cases; he has in the past not paid contractors, not paid salaries and not paid fees. The business Donald Trump even got caught up in case where he was trying to licence his name on clothes to two different companies and trying to get away with it. Trump has done whatever he can to Con money, because his business savvy mind cannot be perfect when he gets bankrupt again and again in all kind of businesses: Magazines, Casino’s, Building Projects and even Stakes.
The Donald has done his deeds, but has never manned up for the all the people losing their jobs and putting their trust in his name as a business-person. All the investors and all the small-time proprietors who has had faith in the man over the decades has lost monies and he has settled paying back scraps. That is the way he has done his business and with gold letters and mahogany in his hallway.
Donald Trump has not showed tact and humility, not asked for forgiveness for his harsh words and contempt of intelligence in the American population. Trump has expected that his simplistic ways and headline whoring would overshadow the lack of honour and care for somebody else than himself. So when he today says Clinton has contempt for the American citizens and voters. I shrug my head and wonder what about his words and actions? What about Donald Trump’s constant attitude and attacks on men and woman of all kinds?
If she has contempt for the words of “basket of deplorable”; well it is not just words and words of wisdom more of attack on the campaign of fear and destruction. That is what the Trump campaign consists of, it isn’t of hope and prosperity. Trump’s campaign is fuelled of hatred and painful deconstruction of the American dream. The American Dream and the American Melting pot is turned off, the American prosperity and faith in future is dead in Trumps campaign.
Trump is acting as giant who saves them all, but certain kinds he will deport and get away since they are not American enough. The immigrants and others can be handpicked and gotten rid of. Building walls and using all tricks of the political game to gain tractions without thinking about the consequences. Trump only has main target of feeding himself and his own ego.
Trump shouldn’t ask Clinton to retract her statement. Clinton should ask Trump if he could apologize to the American People for the rhetoric, the disgusting campaign of fear and destruction, the dissolution and fantasies he spread like truth. The 9/11 stories, the black-on-black crime states and the clear attacks on ‘Black Lives Matters’ as they are the vicious ones not the Police who shoots unarmed African Americans in the inner-cities.
Trump should show humility and do like Clinton. Ask for forgiveness, not that Clinton wrote a good statement, though it can be justified, because the connections to the men and woman who are clearly racists are there. Still, Trump should do the same and write long list and even kiss the ring. He has used his rhetoric and ways to tarnish his own party members and candidates in ways that is unjust not fair. The ways he has attacked Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz is not desirable anywhere.
Do I believe Trump will ask for forgiveness, hell-NO! If he did would I believe it? No! Still , should he do it? Hell-Yes, but it is not in him. He will not humiliate himself and become a ordinary man because of his sky-high ego created by the talk-shows and interviews for decades where he was allowed to be a kid in the candy-shop. Acting wild in the shop where he never met any real sanction for eating the candy and not paying, because the parents take care of that with the cashier!
Trump you are in contempt of voters, of the world and of anybody else who are living in this world. Only the Infowars and Breitbart where their scattered worldview is in stark contrast with the non-Tom Cruise Aliens that exists. The vivid perspective of cautions of clarity would be rare as the comments and dirt will be even weirder in this campaign than normal. Trump will act as always and Katrina Pierson will struggle to defend her candidate on MSNBC and CNN. Fox News will continue to salute their candidate without any questions while Tomi Lahren will spread some “conservative” non-sense and believe that hawks of Texas will defend her honour. Trump will believe that Climate Change doesn’t exist even if it does when it comes to his sea-side Golf-Resort in Ireland.
Trump will not ask forgives because he is in reality the candidate in the United States Presidential Election of 2016 who has contempt for the most people. Trump has contempt for anybody who questions his values, his wealth and his ego. Trump has no faith in people like me who has no-problem to destroy his value and grace. Trump cannot stand people like me who does not feel that is really special… though he is special in the way he could Con himself into the Presidential Candidacy in the Republican Party while the establishment bashed in their own previous attempts of greatness. Trump is special in the sense he can get away with “basket of deplorable” statements all the time, while Clinton has to bury her hatched at once. Even if she has been attacked in vicious and vindictive ways from the Republican candidates and the Republican apparatus all through the Primary Season and after; this might be seen as her big gaffe, but Trump should have let this slide. Because he has done far worse and a mountain of disgraceful things about fellow Americans!
Trump is the one that is showing the Americans, the citizens of United States content with this acts and words, his rhetoric and his campaign as he thinks his fellow Americans accept that the policies and the political framework doesn’t matter. That his opinions and his words of racists words doesn’t have effect. That his campaign that has thrown out African-Americans and also kept them out of his rallies isn’t showing the liability of the contempt for the 1st Amendment. He just care about the 2nd Amendment where he can shoot a fellow on the street and still the fellow supporters would not stop him from doing so. That proves to what extent he goes to get his place. He doesn’t care, he doesn’t and that what is worrying that so many doesn’t see the violent and xenophobic hatred that are in his camp.
Trump, you are holding the United States hostage and holding the United States in Contempt and not taking responsibility for your own actions. It is time for you to do so. Act responsible and man-up. I doubt you will do so, because you can’t and you never have because you repels people like me. I have a hard time to believe you have a conscious and can narrate a story with truths. I haven’t seen it, and never believe I will see it or hear it. You don’t have it in you. Trump you can continue to blame all the problems of the world on Clinton and Obama. Continue and say they even started the Ice-Age and we’re behind the Armenian Genocide. But you will never ever take responsibility and therefore you are showing contempt of all American citizens for the way has acted. Peace.
