Opinion: Donald Trump Junior isn’t the smartest cookie out there, as the Russian Probe continues!

“No owl is afraid of the night, no snake of the swamp and no traitor of the treason!”- Mehmet Murat Ildan

Well, yesterday the revelation of yet another aspect of the Russian interference in the Presidential Elections of the United States came to the public view. As the big-media and the social media has been flooded with information and connections with collision. It is not as if Donald Trump Junior has been brilliant or even shown any intelligence to hide the facts. He is proven that his not James Bond or James Blunt for that matter. He is just the oldest son of a cynical family who uses their ties to Russia to get advantage during the campaigns before November 2016.

Trump Junior, who is part of the New York Gang, has clearly gotten himself into trouble, therefore he had to have a locked room in Congress, he could not stomach to lie on C-Span to the whole nation; that is something Sean Hannity does for him already on Fox. Where he tried to deflect the meeting with Russian Government Agents and alike.

It is as if they do not thinks people can tie things together. The Russian Adoption story seems even more far-fetched with the timeline and the releases from WikiLeaks. As the e-mails between him and the speeches of his father, proclaiming that people should release the Clinton E-Mails. It is like a bad nightmare for him, but he still thinks he piss gold, sorry Junior it is still piss.

That the Trump Campaign whom already has issues with Carter Paige, George Papadopoulos, Paul Manafort and Rick Gates. As well as the investigations into Michael Flynn and his son too. There are enough conspiracy rolling, as the train is usually surrounding his son-in-law Jared Kushner, the new savior of American Democracy and Middle East Peace Process. While, nothing really happing there. We can just imagine how the lawyers of the Trump Campaign and the Trump Organization feel. As the Robert Mueller and Congress Investigation continues and the peeling of the onion.

Even I wondered why the was no leaks of any proportion from the Republican Party and Trump Campaign, while the Clinton’s was undressed in public and we got to see how a giant and big money politics works from the inside. It was damaging yes and the elitism stung it severely. Those wounds are surely addressed in her new, but not that I need to read it. We know Hillary Clinton has rights tell her grievances of the whole experience.

Still, that Donald Trump Junior is not wise or even street-smart is evident as he meets with Russians in the Trump Tower, deflects the meaning of this meeting, while having direct talks with the WikiLeaks days ahead of the releases of the leaked E-Mails. He must be one of the co-stars in Dumber and Dumber to not understand the implications. The lawyers should have a field day with this.

That Jeff Sessions and Mike Pence knew something is also now evident, even if none of them officially recalls anything. I expect them both to have forgotten their mother’s maiden name by now, even their wives birthdays as well. Since the meetings and conversations about Russian connections has been in oblivion. Because their deflections and the stories now coming from Paige, Papadopoulos and Trump Junior, implies something compared also to Trump senior’s own Twitter account. As well as Roger Stone implying in the days after Trump Jr. E-mails with WikiLeaks are revealing. The whole operations are easy to show and does not need the smartest people to tie it together.

Donnie boy has messed up, but how costly and how many counts on his indictment or his proceeding courtship is unknown as Mueller’s wheels are running slow; still his upcoming trials and speculations into what sort of breaches of law is not evident. Clearly, the played with foreign agent and foreign government aides to becoming superior, that has to count for something. Not the victory, but the tarnished reputation and the activity that goes into treason. That your friends are adversaries of the state and you still work together.

We can imagine what the next revelation might be. Certainly, it will show how foolish and reckless the Trump Campaign was, as most of them had ties to Kremlin, meet with Kremlin guys and some like Manafort got paid through their oligarchs. The worst part is, this is not a bad B-Movie with Dolph Lundgren or Jet Li, and this is the real deal.

The Saga continues and the New York Gang is not looking good, it is bad. How bad, that can only time tell. Peace.

Eritrea: Statement of ELS on the Protest of October 31 (02.11.2017)

The Eritrean Law Society (ELS) is closely observing developments that have led to, and that have followed after, the unprecedented civilian protest of 31 October 2017, which occurred in the heart of the capital city of Eritrea. The protest was prompted by the announcement of a drastic government decision that affected the status of educational establishments administered by Eritrean religious institutions. Another major motive for the protest is the arbitrary arrest of respected elders and spiritual leaders, notably Haji Mussa Mohammed Nur, who strongly opposed the government decision.

Although the details of causalities are not yet fully known, ELS is concerned by the fact that brute force, including live ammunition, was used to suppress the protest, which was nothing more than a peaceful demonstration against a drastic government measure affecting the lives of thousands of people. In our view, the protest signifies one fundamental reality. In today’s Eritrea, citizens have no choice of whatsoever nature in pursuing their individual and group aspirations, life plans, goals, and purposes. Eritreans do not also have access to independent and impartial institutions, including courts of law that can safeguard their fundamental rights and freedoms in the event these essential entitlements are wantonly violated by government authorities.

History dictates that no population can be ruled forever under the yoke of unbearable authoritarianism. There is an urgent need in Eritrea for a full return to a system of governance based on constitutional order, the requirements of democratic accountability, and respect for the rule of law, including the protection of fundamental rights and freedoms of the Eritrean people. ELS would like to take this occasion to make a call on the international community and those who can play a role by pushing for a full return to a democratic system of governance in Eritrea.

Meanwhile, the following reminder is also important for all peace-loving and justice-seeking Eritreans. We shall stay the course and remain vigilant against all sorts of divisive and cheap political machinations orchestrated by the authoritarian regime in Eritrea, its brazen apologists and messengers. It is always important to remember that the regime will make continuous recourse to methods that promote its narrow political agenda as well as frustrate the momentum ushered by the protest of 31 October.

Senator Al Franken Letter to Attorney General Sessions on the “Russian Interference Case” (02.11.2017)

Opinion: Mzee don’t want to bother foreign investors with taxes, just give him a Presidential Handshakes!

Well, I am biased, as the President are visiting Dubai for 4th Global Business Forum on Africa on the 2nd November 2017. President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is trying to cater to foreign investors. People who he usually cater to at the State House, so he can get favors and Presidential Handshakes. That is why he isn’t bothered with taxes, because the tax-holidays and possible offerings will be huge for the investors who comes in. That is what the National Resistance Movement (NRM) are doing, especially if it is for instance a nations offering the state loan, than the same state can come with state-companies to build infrastructure like Chinese companies coming in after offering loans to the same NRM government. Therefore, just look at what he was saying yesterday, which is weird, but fit a pattern.

Since you are business people, we must be talking about profits. When you talk of Uganda and Africa, you are talking about peace as an enabling environment; which we have. We have raw materials, and have a population of 40 million people that’s’ a market. And if we talk of integration we have a four tear market” (…) “In Africa, the demand is there and growing because we have been under-consuming while the rest of the world the demand is falling because they have been over consuming” (…) “There are plenty of raw materials, minerals, tourism and so on so when you invest there you have access to all these” (…) “I don’t have to bother investors with taxes, what I want is for them to invest, use our raw materials, create jobs, add value and promote exports” (State House Uganda, 2017).

Well, so the President trying to say to foreign investors, you don’t need to pay taxes for your output, just cater to me. The state you don’t have to bother about, just bother about catering to the State House and me. We will add value and promote exports, we will agreements and make sure you get the value on our resources and low-payed workers.

We know who is the biggest taxpayers in the republic, because of Uganda Revenue Authority own statement in the media on the 31st October 2017, which stated names like Mr. Alnasir Virani Gulam Hussein Habib, Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia, Mohammed Hussain, Nakayima Janat, Karia Minex, Karia Kunnal, Alykhan Hudani and Dayalijil Karan. Who are sounding like foreign investors and they are on the top 25 biggest taxpayers in Uganda. So the state has already connected families from abroad to invest there in various businesses. This shows there are already people who is not worried about taxes, but about the output of their companies.

Some of these investors has made big names, while others have worked more in silence. Still, this shows that the top earners even promoted by URA and Doris Akol. Proves how they are working, as there wasn’t that many own citizens on the list. That shows that the foreign investors must get a special advantage and special agreements at the state house for their dealings. Especially, considering how it has been done, just for tearing down markets in Kampala for own investors and financial agreements. This has been done and arranged from the State House without consultation with locals, neither KCCA or the renters of these markets. That is how the NRM and Museveni do deals in favor of him and if he get ill-gained funds, he will support the “development”. It is in similar fashion he exposes his intent in Dubai.

That the State doesn’t need taxes or need structures to facilitate for foreign investors, they just needs agreements with State House and then it is all fair-game. It is insane, but fits the Modus Operandi of the Musevenism and NRM regime. Give him a Presidential Handshake and you can operate as you want in the Republic. Peace.

Opinion: The Mueller investigations will reveal the Russian Connections to the Trump Campaign!

If you thought this was nothing burger and believed anything your reading on American Conservative Media, I hate to say, then your blind and not believing the truth. It will be hard for you and hard to eat this burger, but needed because this is about foreign conspiracy involved in the American Election in the 2016. This is serious, but not that the Republican Party or the Grand Ol’ Party (GOP) want to take that responsibility or telling their possible vicious attempt of undermining the electorate and misusing foreign forces to their benefits.

This not just mere speculations, the Statement of George Papadopolous on the 5th October 2017 is telling, how he was arranging with people on the inside of the Duma and the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as they wanted to pick Trump as their candidate. While he was a Foreign Policy Adviser in the Trump Campaign. This while being connected with Russian Officials, that was excited to make “the Russian Federation would love him as a candidate”, that was in April 2016. This while the Russian was promising “dirt” on Clinton.

Clearly, the WikiLeaks and the hacking of Democratic Campaign and Podesta Leaks are the sole candidacy into this mess. That the Trump Campaign really earned a lot cashier in their campaign. It really hurt the elitist campaign and the undertaker of Trump. This was the sole card of the Russian to sell to Trump and use to create troubles for the other candidate. That is why the revelations in the statement to Court from Papadopolous is damaging. This is the first drop of many and more people will follow suit.

Already the knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting with Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Junior and Paul Manafort is coming to mind. So the whole timeline and the expected connections coming closer. Combined with all the people whose ties to Russia been there either with business or loans. Whatever really, all of the handpicked or most of them has had at some point some Russian Connection. Therefore, the Mueller investigation will put it all perspective and will clearly show the facts.

The indictment of Manafort and Gates today are really showing the extent of his investigation. As he has started to play his cards and revealing what he has found. That the Trump Campaign has more trouble ahead. Since the Campaign Manager after Lewandowski, Paul Manafort and his connections to Kremlin and Kiev, as he whitewashed monies and had schemes there. Could possible provide the help and support the Trump Campaign could need. That the 12 counts against him and being a Foreign Agent lobbying for Ukrainian President really is proving his ties. Not only that his greed and him not paying taxes for the millions of dollars. Robert Mueller wouldn’t file these count if he didn’t have proof of them. Clearly, Gates and Manafort has a hard time coming. They cannot run away from this investigation and this indictment. They might even flash out more information. As they are even charged with “Conspiracy against the United States”.

This might show us and get us the information what really happen between the Russians and the Trump Campaign. There been some revealing details, but the Trump Tower meeting has been silent, as well as so many other clues. Like Jared Kushner loans to his businesses. The long term businesses the Trump Organization has in Russia. Other questionable appointments in the Trump Administration after his victory. So many of them have had or been in business in Russia like Wilbur Ross, Rex Tillerson, Cater Paige, Sebastian Gorka, Bety DeVos, Ivanka Trump, Gary Cohn, Jeff Sessions, Felix Sater, Robert Gates and Michael Flynn. Clearly this all part of the Trump Administration. You cannot hide the fact. Especially when people like Papadopoulos reveal their stories in Court. This is what the Trump lawyers don’t want. They cannot spin this… and it is hard to bargain Manafort, as there are clear connections with him. That must be reason why he is picked before Michael Flynn, as Flynn could be easily traded away for Trump, but Manafort might be too toxic.

This is just beginning, surely Mueller has collected and connected the dots. We will see the revelations and the deep cover-up, that the Trump Administration and the New York Gang has tried to conceal, the Trump will try to deflect this. But the red-light is up and the car is moving. They cannot rig this as the first indictment and the first official statement is compelling of evidence of possible “Conspiracy against the United States”.

Just think about that, the President and his team were possibly “conspiring against the United States”. This while campaigning for the highest and proudest office, they were trying to get the presidency, but by conspiring against the principals and while using foreign intelligence and interference to change the elections.

That this is sad, but also a reality that is not far-fetched, especially considering all of the connections and the meetings with Russian individuals and Russian Foreign Agents. Peace.

US: Attorney General Jeff Sesssion Memo: “Revised Treatment of Transgender Employment Discrimination Claims Under Title VII of the Civil Rights of 1964” (04.10.2017)

Opinion: It’s ironic that President Museveni is talking about disciplining the government!

The three arms of government and their sub-branches must have discipline. For example I have been involved in disciplining the army. We should do the same for other sub-branches of government. If the Judiciary is also disciplined in fighting corruption, citizens will lead a good life. – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on the 1st October 2017, State House Entebbe.

Its just one of these days that hearing the news and seeing the tweets of the President, makes me laugh and wonder if he listen to himself. He knows his system and has made his garden. The way the government steers and govern is because of his policies, his regulations and his support. It is not like there been other ruling for last 30 years in Uganda. The Republic has been under the control of Museveni and his National Resistance Movement (NRM).

The NRM has suffocated all other free-will and control. Therefore, Ministers, Members of Parliament and others seek guidance and funds directly at the State House in Entebbe. Even foreign investors meet there to make agreements. Everything is nearly sanctioned out there. The Discipline now is more on the narrow-minded government that is run from there. The institutions and the procedures are not so important. Since most things happening is with the words from “above”, meaning the President and his close advisers.

It is not rocket science to know where the benefactor or the reason for lacking structures. That is because government waits for their go sign by the State House, they are waiting for funding of the projects and institutions from the State House. The projects and the works of the State House and under the Prime Ministers Offices are the key organizations within this government. They might say all of the massive cabinet has part to play, but that is the facade.

Therefore, it is ironic for a man so controlling and so disorganized that it gives sometimes way to the unthinkable. Just like the Presidential Handshake, that was sanctioned by the State House, but taken form the wrong account. That was the problem for the President, not that the corrupt behavior was occurring on his watch. Its like he talks against himself. Because he has no problem speaking anti-corruption, but if corruption benefit his cronies – its fine and dandy!

I am not surprised by him at this point of time, its fit his narrative. He says what he expects and wants out of others, but the next day he finds a way to benefit or use the loyalty of his cronies. Not like he would have excepted the UCC not to listen and stop the suspended MPs to hit the airways and be broadcast on TV. He rather being himself on radio and in the spotlight, but will accept anyone else sharing the same space.

President Museveni is the proof of someone saying something noble, but doing opposite. He might say something insane, but act rational. Therefore, you never know where you have him. I will never believe him actually disciplining the government, if doing so. It means they are all blindfolded and following his guidelines. It does not mean building proper governance and protocol, neither is institutionalize the departments and ministries, it is all about his will and his stature.

When it comes to Museveni, discipline is about following him. Not building transparent and proper government institutions. Peace.

The New York Gang is active again, as Junior’s defense to Congress are not trustworthy!

The way Donald Trump Junior has come with different stories on the Trump Campaign and the Russian collusion. The meeting in the Trump Tower on the 7th June 2017 we’re with dozens of Russian operatives, as the E-Mail chain proves the possible troubles of the campaign. That is why the stories of the oldest son of the American President, Donald J. Trump have changed. The Statement today is no different, but seems like he is lying to Congress and thinks he can get away of it.

Let’s retract the E-Mails again, just to make sure the meeting isn’t forgotten about:

So let’s take the fellow information we can from the e-mails, which was on the 3rd June 2017 Rob Gladstone wrote to Donald Trump Jr: (Subject – “FW Russia – Clinton – privat and confidential”) “Good Morning. Emin just called and asked me to contact you with something very interesting. The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father. This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but it is part of Russia and it’s government’s support for Mr. Trump – helped along by Aras and Emin. What would you think is the best way to handle this information and would you be able to speak to Emin about it directly? I can also send this info to your father via Rhona, but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send you first. Best Rob Gladstone”. Later in the day – Donald Trump Jr answered: “Thanks Rob I appreciate that, I am on the road at the moment but perhaps I just speak to Emin first. Seems we have some time and if it’s what you say I love it later this summer. Could we do a call first thing next week when I am back? Best, Don”. Later answered: “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but it is part of Russia and it’s government’s support for Mr. Trump – helped along by Aras and Emin” (Rob Gladstone E-Mail to Donald J. Trump, June 2016)” (Minbane – ‘The New York Gang meeting on the 9th June 2016 in the Trump Tower with yet another undisclosed Russian associate Akhmetshin!’, 15.07.2017).

So the E-Mail chain of the Donald Trump Junior cannot be forgotten, since it shows the intent of the Campaign and Russian collusion. If you would love getting information, that could support his campaign. Here is his defense again on the matter!

Outtakes from Juniors statement to Congress on the 7th September:

In his email to me Rob suggested that someone had “official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary [Clinton] and her dealings with Russia” and that the information would be “very useful” to the campaign. I was somewhat skeptical of his outreach, as I had only known Rob as Emin’s somewhat colorful music promoter who had worked with famous pop singers such as Michael Jackson. Since I had no additional information to validate what Rob was saying, I did not quite know what to make of his email. I had no way to gauge the reliability, credibility or accuracy of any of the things he was saying. As it later turned out, my skepticism was justified. The meeting provided no meaningful information and turned out not to be about what had been represented. The meeting was instead primarily focused on Russian adoptions, which is exactly what I said over a year later in my statement of July 8, 2017” (…) “In responding to Rob’s email, I wrote back and suggested that “perhaps I just speak to Emin first.” As much as some have made of my using the phrase “I love it”, it was simply a colloquial way of saying that I appreciated Rob’s gesture. Three days later, on June 6th, Rob contacted me again about scheduling a time for a call with Emin. My phone records show three very short phone calls between Emin and me between June 6th and 7th. I do not recall speaking to Emin. It is possible that we left each other voice mail messages. I simply do not remember” (Donald Trump Junior, Statement to Congress on the 7th September 2017).

I have hard time believing this story, as the deferred tale he was telling today. Since just like on Sean Hannity after the revealed E-Mails, he tried to tell the world that the meaning was meaningless. But if it was so, why did he work out the perks for showing up? Why did the Russians send so many people and make sure they we’re all there?

The strangest thing is that he is now not remembering his call to Emin. As he had to call him before the meeting as he even told on the mail before facilitate the meeting. Therefore, the forgetfulness of it all doesn’t make sense. Why is he working so hard to deflect it all? So, the Trump Junior trying to change the paradigm and sticking with it. To a state that seems like stupidity.

The strangest part of the deflection was the different statements both on Fox News on Hannity and the official one that the President even made. Both we’re different and try to change it from collusion to Russian adoption. Its like he is finessing the statement. Its hard to believe Trump Junior, its like his lawyer’s and attorney’s told him what to say.

We can just wait on more revealing stories on the Russian Collusion and more drip-drops of information on the Russian investigation. Trump Junior clearly has to tell different stories to be believable, since this is affecting the Trump Campaign and the interference of Russians in it. The Statement today are really again proving he will change his story and also rewrite history to fit his paradigm. There are clear the Trump Junior Statement today will be debunked and with time. Peace.
