Opinion: Biden is lukewarm coffee Part II

We have now for some time seen the real deal of the Biden Administration. The people have been appointed and hired. The Democratic President Joe Biden who took over after a shambolic and snake-oil salesman in Donald J. Trump. Biden had the world ahead of him and with some promises of changes during the campaigns. However, the U.S. is more of the same and not a vast change from the Trump administration.

The U.S. government is still bombing Somalia. Selling weapons and arms to Middle East allies who fights wars in Yemen and elsewhere. The U.S. is still caging and detaining asylum-seekers. The President is maybe not crying foul and wanting a wall. However, the detention-centres are still a viable industry and the President has not shut this down. Neither has he address the ruthless and injustice served by the ICE agents across the Republic.

Biden is clearly lukewarm coffee. He is not hot coffee or cold coffee. No, his the boring and adherent liquid you drink in need, but not because you enjoys it. It is a tragic blend and misuse of good coffee. As you let it become lukewarm and that’s why it’s not a tasty cup of coffee.

President Biden is just that. This is why he cannot forgive student debt by Executive Order. Neither could he or his administration configure the relief for millions of people as the pandemic and lack of steady salaries possibly could evict millions of citizens from their landlords. He has just suspended the payments and the rent will sooner or later haunt the tenants who has to either save or move out at one point. While they will struggle to find another home or flat to live in.

President Biden has also made it impossible to find a measure to make Medicare for All a thing. Neither opening up for a public option. Therefore, the man who was beside Obama with Obamacare and additional measures with Medicaid. The current administration is even more mediocre with that after years of dismantling this by the Trump Administration.

Biden and his government is just a light-Republican edition. There is little to no real changes to see. Especially not from a far. The so-called “progressive” representatives and senators in the Democratic Party haven’t done much either. They are nice in the media and making statements in the press. However, they are not amending laws or policies which follows their “progressive” ideals. It is more of a posture and selling out to the rest of the Corporate democrats. Therefore, there is little difference between the “moderates” in the Democratic Party and the Republican counterparts.

This is why Biden bipartisan works makes sense. As the Democratic Party and their works are so much alike the Republican. Only difference is the party and the donors. The Democratic Party have the majority, but by what they have achieved. It doesn’t look like it. The Republican party is still in sort of control and giving the Democratic party a majority seems like a failure. Since they are not using it or trying to do what they promised.

Biden and the Democratic party will suffer and possible be hit in the mid-terms. That’s because they had the majority, but acted as a minority. They didn’t even try or use their authority for common sense polices. Policies that is popular by the general public and across the board. Yes, the donors and the budget would be bloated. However, it is not like the previous administration cared about that. The fiscal responsibility shouldn’t only be held by Democrats while Republicans can spend like drunk sea-men. This is why Biden could have spent vast funds on student debt and Medicare, which would have made legendary. However, he rather be a moderate and corporate politician who could easily be branded with an elephant instead of the donkey. Peace.

Opinion: Kulinski have fled the sinking ship of TYT

It is now revealed after the video clip earlier this week of news anchor Cenk Uygur saying his final “goodbye” to Kyle Kulinski and “the Secular Talk” from The Young Turks (TYT) Network. The last few weeks has been horrible for TYT and this isn’t making things better.

That Kulinski is leaving the TYT. Shows that one of the biggest network assets has left the scene. As the TYT have lost two former commentators and contributors in Kulinski and Jimmy Dore. Both of these YouTube Channels has an ability cause a stir and political interest online. Where they will directly fight with TYT.

That Kyle is now leaving is an indication that the ties are now finally over. TYT have gone on a rampage against anyone criticising it. The TYT have tried to smear other journalists and directly attacked them. Without proof of their allegations and the supposed ill-advised reporting they supposed to do. While the TYT haven’t redacted or done anything in their way to take responsibility for their actions.

Cenk Uygur looks like his losing it and he don’t know how to handle this storm. The TYT is losing not only edge, but also subscribers. The TYT is losing former hosts, anchors and network associates. Former friends of the TYT is now becoming cold or getting attacked. That is what is happening and its a very tragic demise of the Network.

Kyle leaving this way shows he has understood that this was his time. He is starting to have a good platform on his own and also a podcast. His businesses elsewhere is reaching new heights and he isn’t in need of the backing of the TYT. That must hurt Cenk, but Cenk has also stopped giving him any reasons to be affiliated with the network.

The TYT brand and ethos as a progressive is clearly sinking. The ideals of the news network is also becoming stagnate. The TYT has 5 million members on YouTube, but how many of them is daily viewers? How many are following the live shows? Does the Vanguard or Hard Lens Media have more of a traction now? Heck does one man teams of Jesse Dollamore or Farron Balanced have rising power?

The TYT is living on a knives edge. Cenk’s words in his final goodbye to Kyle was distasteful and disgraceful. Wishing someone a “disaster” and saying his choices will be filled with more “disasters”. That isn’t professional, but a butt-hurt and seemingly angry. Kulinski should have gotten some respect for all the years he was a part of the network and the work he put in.

The TYT needs to revaluate its purpose, unless they want to known for these sort of acts. Instead of being the home of progressives. They are instead the home of smear-artists and attacking other journalists. Who can trust a home like that? Who want to watch that?

The way Cenk handled Kyle leaving isn’t worthy of anyone. Especially, when they have worked together for years and been loyal to the same cause. If someone did the same to me and my folks. I would have been horrified and wondered what caused the change.

Cenk especially needs to repurpose his manners and where he wants the TYT to go. Because, people like me used to watch it. However, during the last month I have ditched it totally and I’m not planning to return either.

TYT isn’t showing any care for the viewers, its affiliates or former employees. It is just becoming a hawkish YouTube platform. Not a News Network anymore…. and only name-calling without proof. That isn’t what I came for, but that’s what Cenk is serving you. Peace.

Opinion: TYT have lost me forever now

The Young Turks (TYT) is the biggest YouTube News Channel and the supposed challenger to the Mainstream Media (MSM). However, with the time the difference between TYT and the MSM has withered. The difference between TYT and MSNBC is now now bare minimum.

The TYT difference is the news anchors Cenk Ugyur and Anna Kasparian. The TYT isn’t doing what they used to do. They are instead being smear-artists and going after other credible journalists.

This being either Aaron Maté, Glenn Greenwald or Richard Medhurst. The TYT even went after Julian Assange. Just like they have targeted former employee and comedian Jimmy Dore. The TYT have no quarrels doing this.

It is tragic that things gone this far. That Cenk is saying this about other journalists without any real evidence. He targets people and smears them. He just wants to prove a point and targets them directly. What happened to have any sort of integrity at TYT?

That seems to be lost… and the Network needs to think about themselves. The TYT needs to consider their approaches. They are not reporting news or becoming a viable news source. When they are doing this to credible journalists.

Yes. Nobody is perfect and have done anyone wrong. The TYT goes directly at Dore at his wrongs. However, the same TYT never takes any responsibility for the years of Howard Stern content and “camel toe” segments. Therefore, the TYT isn’t sincere in this. Neither is Cenk who said he wouldn’t even sleep with someone on live-air. That’s why this TYT isn’t what it seems.

I used to watch TYT to get another experience and another perspective to U.S. politics. However, the attacks on Maté, Greenwald or Dore. What else can the TYT edit in their favour? What else can the TYT say or do to save face?

Not like the TYT has taken any responsibility for these smear campaigns and how they are dwelling into these shady tactics. This is not what reliable networks does, but what people does to save face. They are also editing things to make them worse, but not taking any sort of account of their own past behaviour. Even telling the public. That if you watch Jimmy or read anything from Glenn. Just buzz off and don’t return.

That’s what’s happening and its distasteful. Dishonest and disingenuous at best. Disrespectful to the viewer and to the ones who follows them.

This isn’t TYT I used to watch and I’m sad that it turned out like this. Peace.

Opinion: The TYT isn’t all what it seems

The Young Turks (TYT) have been a place for other type of news online. A place where you would find other sources and stories than in the Main-Stream Media (MSM). However, over the years it has changed. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian have for years been the main anchors of the TYT.

They have had other participate and covered various of stories. The TYT have been interesting as another source in covering the United States Elections and especially the Presidential races. Which, the covering and live-shows has enriched the conservation. However, their hypocrisy and their shady history is now coming to back to haunt them.

The TYT cannot smear others without taking into account their own lack of moral judgments and misogyny. There is a plethora of clips showing Cenk and Ana discussing celebrities and viral photos/clips as part of a segment of their show. That was happening years ago and in the early age of the TYT. Still, it is a part of the history and how the TYT represented itself. Even if the TYT have made these videos private. There are some who has catalogued them and is re-issuing them on YouTube.

Therefore, the TYT cannot run away from these clips as the TYT smears and go after other journalists. Instead of taking into account their own behaviour and actions. A news network who has said to be progressive and for the left. It seems to have lost its way. They are parroting certain objective campaigns and agendas. While they want the world to believe they are “independent” and not beholden to “corporate” interests. When the TYT has been looked into and taken questionable vulture capitalist funding and also direct DNC donor money. Therefore, “off course” this has implicated the show and the stories its telling.

Money talks… for a TYT Network who has worked so hard to get money out of politics. Fight the corrupt Washington and the politicians beholden to the lobbyist and corporate donors. It is very significant that the TYT is taking millions and dealing with the corporate like they do. That is selling out and taking away their credibility.

They are not run by the ad revenue on YouTube or by the Memberships. When they have gotten millions of dollars and these are steering the conversation. They are clearly being used and will be sounding like other MSM. When the donors and the ones paying for the operation want their end of the bargain. That is just a fact and not a smear campaign against the TYT. That is a decision the TYT have done and out of business. It is good business. They are getting paid and gotten a financial boost.

The TYT doesn’t have to account for the 5 million subscribers and whatever amount of paying members they have. They are still trying to sell it after every video. However, the TYT is most likely earning more on the DNC funding than what it earns on its members.

That means the TYT will play the songs the DNC donors wants them to sing. This isn’t progressive or anything they want to label. That’s why I in the future rather watch Jesse Dollemore, Farron Cousins or DL Hughley. They will speak more sense to a guy like me and seems real.

At this moment in time. I cannot just watch the TYT and not question their agenda. Because, it has unravelled this week. A place I used to go. To see something else and get a little balance from MSNBC and CNN. Now, that is not possible. Especially, on the covering of United States matters, which is the reason why I look at their covering of politics in general.

That ship has sailed. The TYT have lost a former viewer now. Because, I have learned enough this week and seen their true face. This is not happening because of their shady outburst against Jimmy Dore or weaponizing MeeToo. Dore might be bad at it and act a fool for all I know. However, Cenk and Ana needs to look into their own past and own creative decisions. Which wasn’t all that great….

TYT has lost a viewer on YouTube. The TYT looked better and had made itself seems legit. However, it was a house built on sand and the waves are now washing it away. Peace.

Opinion: Biden is lukewarm coffee

There are some things in life, which isn’t fair neither as we suspect it be. Someone who was associated with the good times of President Barrack Obama. Being his Vice-President, Senator and everything else. There should be ways to see him finesse his ways to become Head of State and President. However, this man doesn’t cut it. Not at this junction.

Joe Biden the Presidential Candidate and front-runner in the Democratic Party has the enthusiasm as lukewarm coffee. It is nether steaming hot-coffee straight from the tap or the coffee-maker. It isn’t either ice-coffee with sweet sugar and milky flavour. It is a coffee that has been forgotten, put on a table or the counter. Therefore, the coffee isn’t as warm it should be. You put it there and didn’t care about it.

Just like that is Biden. No matter that he has a long track-record working for the corporate establishment, that his been a main-stay and been a safe-bet for them. So, its not like his been working directly for Joe-Blow. No, Joe has been a safe one for the needs of Corporate America. That is why his pushed by the Mainstream Media, who earns capital from the same Corporate America. They are working in tandem to get him in, because that is a safer bet than having Bernie Sanders.

However, by doing so, they are pushing a weaker, lukewarm coffee against Donald Trump. A Donald who has a party behind him and a cult-following within his ranks. People can die, people can suffer, but they will still follow him. The Scientology of Politics is what Trump is.

When your supposed to go against that type of grain, you need strength, a motive and message. You need a to be vibrant and able to beat the hypocrisy of Trump. Also able to undress him and show how his not doing everything his promising. That is that is what is needed to do.

Biden cannot reach new voters, neither spark a change to gather new following. Unless, you a K-Mart CEO or Wall-Mart Corporate Associate, than you have a deal, but that is a small margin. The public, the activists are not running around and considering Biden. Biden has only people around him, because he can pay them. He can fake following, but that will not be a natural surge.

Biden cannot manage nor sound like a profound human being. His like a Democratic Mike Pence. We don’t need another Mike Pence. Mike Pence is the ass-kisser and the jester of the White House. Biden should want to be more, except his not. Joe can say “Malarkey” and try to act to the people now. His team and himself isn’t able to fit the narrative of the time. That is why New York Governor Andrew Cuomo get more a natural flair because of the address to the public.

Cuomo has taken the national stage and eaten it. He has shown capacity and ability to stay strong in the midst of struggle. In this current time and pandemic. His voice of reason and reality check has been sincere. The acts of Biden seems more like cheap-shots and political game-planning as he hasn’t stopped elections nor tried to avoid primaries. Instead let it go ahead, as the social distancing is destroyed by it. The DNC and the Biden camp has accepted this. While Bernie has spoken out that he would have postponed it. That is why Biden cannot even do that right, because he rather have the votes, than make sure the DNC supporters are safe.

That plus his whole persona is uninteresting. Neither is his policies or changes. His a moderate, old-school politician, whose for the corporate America, but not for the public. Unless, you want the Ghost-Persons voting for you. Than, the DNC should consider someone else. Biden doesn’t cut it.

How can this man, with the lukewarm enthusiasm be able to beat a cult? That’s not happening. Everyone can see that, but maybe the reality has to hit them again … because the Democratic Party should know better. However, I don’t expect it. They gave way for Hillary, they could do the same for Joe. Even if that is losing before you even start playing. Peace.

Opinion: Michael Bloomberg is our times ‘Citizen Kane’

I never thought that knowing Orson Wells movie ‘Citizen Kane’ would be this relevant for our times, but it apparently is. In that movie, the main character Charles Foster Kane is a rich New Yorker willingly going into a political campaign, owning newspapers and a vast empire. Having an ego and narcissistic view of himself, as the grand man and a man for the people. Even when he was richer than God and had Xanadu as his playground with all the wonders of the world.  Still, he was never satisfied and felt betrayed that he didn’t get elected and lost because of a shady love-affair with a singer that would spoil his reputation.

In this manner, Michael Bloomberg fit perfectly well. He has the campaign behind, he has all the money the world can offer. He owns a media empire, his even a former Mayor of New York. Surely, he has his copy of Xanadu somewhere. Bloomberg is a man who creates scandals, all by himself and his own history. He has used power and words before to address the ills of society, but not for betterment. Instead to amplify the problems and racial abuse people. Therefore, wealth isn’t a sign of moral judgement.

Bloomberg is an “oligarch”, a Richie rich rich soft of fella. He has had the ability to be relevant because of his wealth. Be a part of any conversation because of his stature. Not because of his vitality or his policies. No, his just another New York Mayor bashing in wealth, who succeeded by another one of those.

Mikey Mike think he deserves it. Nevertheless, he don’t just because he got money. Doesn’t mean he will get the love. He can campaign like Citizen Kane, use all the tools of disposal, buy allegiance and a fancy media rollout, but that doesn’t shade away the grim facts about this man. That his used to get away with everything and gotten into every room because of his money. Not because of his skills, charisma nor his message. No, because Bloomy is Bloomberg. That’s why his been there.

He can run a TV Network, own newspapers and do what it do. However, that doesn’t mean his fit for office. That he owns conglomerates doesn’t mean his the leader of men. Only, that he knows how to grow money and get people on the money train. That his a racists and misogynist should be a warning sign in itself. However, he thinks he can away with it and it doesn’t matter, because a media can overshadow those things.

Bloomberg want to be loved by the people like Kane, but he will not be. Because, his words hurt, the words uttered against woman and African-Americans are just disgraceful. That he been open for “stop and frisk” someone because of their identity, not because of their record or what they possess. Show his true self.

That the Democratic Party wants a Trump 2.0 running their primaries is also astonishing, considering they are supposed to want to defeat him with a significant difference and not with his evil twin. Because, there is little difference in the clientele and the acts of Bloomberg. Only that he has a Democratic ticket and such. His actions and words of the past would easily fit the bar of the Republicans today.

Therefore, our Charles Forster Kane of 2020 might continue to linger, might try to force his stay. But will he welcomed, will he gain real standing and support? Is it all monetary based on the belief that another billionaire got the capacity to run the Republic? Is that it? If so, what a sad state of affairs for the United States. That it sinks so low and has so little faith in their own.

Bloomberg should back out, take the route of being a donor or whatever they call it. However, not run for office. His not fitting. Boss Getty’s got the US covered and others like him. Mike doesn’t do it. He should leave the race and relax at Xanadu. Look over his artefacts and statutes. Look over his empire and smell the coffee. Not think that people will love him because his rich. They wouldn’t love him, they just want a part of his cake. Peace.

Iowa Caucus Polls: The DNC botched this one!

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) held their Iowa Primary Caucus Polls on the 3rd February 2020. This is the first of all states ahead of the Presidential Elections in November 2020. Therefore, this would give indications on who and what causes that matters ahead of the 2020 elections.

However, the DNC and the Democratic Party have botched that. We’re on the day after, the results from the elections or the polls are not yet there. The Democrats has hired Shadow Inc. to make an app to do the polls. This is company owned by ACRONYM, whose run by Tara McGowan.

The Shadow Inc of the ACRONYM and PACRONYM. These companies and PACs, which is connected with these caucus and the polls. Their actions now are showing shoddy work. The polls and the results of this proving a giant hurdle. If other polls in the primaries are done like this. The whole results and the questions of legitimacy will go-on even further.

That digital voting system is clearly not up for it. The old age ballots and counting would have made more sense at this point. Not like the digitalizing is making this more trustworthy. The stalling, the hours waiting and the lack of proper partial numbers doesn’t make it better.

The Organization of American States (OAS) should come with recommendations and guidance. They need to review these matter. Maybe even be invited to certain caucuses in the near future. To ensure the OAS Election Observation Missions could ensure proper polls and safety of the votes. Since, the DNC cannot manage it by itself.

The shady backdoor deals and the acquisitions and the ones behind the ACONYM, PACONYM and Shadow Inc makes it even more blurry. The app and the basis of trust isn’t there. The DNC should think of this and evaluate it. Because, this is not cutting.

Not matter whose winning in Iowa Primary Caucus Election of 2020. It isn’t their fault, but its the DNC and the Democratic Party. The candidates are the looser in this one. They are looking like fools, while the party members and voters are being played with too.

The winner here is not the Democrats, but the Republicans. As this is just making a bad case for the opposition party. When they cannot even run their own operation. The DNC looks weak and stupid, instead of as a strong alternative. When that might be true, these sort of elections reflects badly on the party and their leadership. This isn’t a sign of strength. Its a sign of weakness.

Where is OAS when you need it, maybe for the polls and primaries they could show up, monitor it and ensure they follow upon the recommendations. As the DNC seemingly needs some guidance to fix this. The perception is bad and by every hour the revelations aren’t getting better. Peace.
