USA: President Joe Biden letter to CEO Darren Woods of Exxon Mobile (14.06.2022)

Opinion: Biden is lukewarm coffee part III

“Since I took office, families are carrying less debt … more Americans feel financially comfortable” – President Joe Biden (03.06.2022).

You know that coffee either taste good warm or as ice-coffee, not in the middle or lukewarm. Lukewarm coffee must be the work of the devil. Since it makes the coffee taste stale and bad. Instead of having the tones and a flavours of which the beverage is supposed to have.

Why do I say this?

Well, United States of America President Joe Biden is the epitome of lukewarm coffee. His neither hot or cold. His the boring in the middle and out-of-touch career politician. Biden has no spine or now will to achieve things. That’s why his achievements are so-and-so. What is striking is that he acts like he isn’t in office or doesn’t have executive power. Secondly, he cannot reign in on the Senate or get popular bills through either.

That’s why his Presidency is close to pointless. We know that the tiredness and the lies of Trump was catching up with. Also, the promise of ending the pandemic and getting a new normal was what Biden wanted to offer. However, he got nothing in the sense of care, concern or programs, which could be meaningful. Unless, it is to help corporate donors and being afraid of a new Republican takeover.

Biden is hopeless… that’s how his looking and Harris isn’t saving him either. The Biden Administration seems inept or not willing to face the realities. The inflation, the rising prices and a lack of regulations to bridge gap is obvious. The current government rather live on inflated numbers and calculations, than consider the real implications living pay-check to pay-check and not ensuring liveable wages. Only in the USA where a childbirth or a sickness can bankrupt a family in the lower middle-class. So, Biden isn’t helping, but instead saying tokenism to boost the ego of the donor-class and the upper echelons. Must surely be nice to smooch with the elite while toying around the working class.

Meanwhile Biden doesn’t understand what is going on. If not his not listening or disinterested. It is like it doesn’t face him or his allies. They pay them no mind and doesn’t understand what implications it has. When people are struggling and no one comes to save you. Your most likely looking elsewhere and even hoping the devil you don’t know will help you out. Even if they are most despicable and disingenuous people. Still, you rather vote for them, as they give at least the bare minimum and promises to fix things. While you in power and with the mandate in both houses of Congress should get legislation voted through. However, in June 2022 that’s too much to ask.

Biden is strangled by the demigod of Manchin and Sinema. He just can’t catch a break. His team cannot configure how to be professionals and play their cards. Instead the soft and meagre manoeuvres make him look like a man without power. Just like a flaccid and broken old man who is to tired to act or unbothered to actually do an honest living.

President Biden could have achieved things. That’s if he wanted too and wasn’t only talking tough to opposition. He should have reigned in his senators and done legislation that really mattered. Because, he has the House and could get things through the Senate with the VP vote like Trump did during this term. However, he has dismissed that and isn’t even trying.

Biden is lukewarm coffee and it tastes like it too. Distasteful chants should ring in Washington D.C. Peace.

Opinion: The U.S. got a gun-problem…

The United States of America has a massive gun problem. The amounts of school-shootings and mass-shootings are staggering. The “lone-wolf” attacks with heavy weaponry and ability to shoot up schools are at imaginable levels.

ZeroEyes reports that 223,000 students have experienced gun-violence at schools between 1999 to 2018. The same NGO reports 229 schools have experienced school-shootings in the same time period. 143 people lives lost in these school-shootings 290 injured and the media age of the school-shooter was sixteen. That’s in the timespan of 1999-2018.

We can just think about the numbers between 2019-2022. As it has continued to spiral out and the numbers aren’t getting better. Everytown statistics from these years aren’t any good either. In 2019 130 incidents of gunfire on school grounds, 33 deaths and 78 injuries. In 2020 there was 96 incidents of gunfire on school grounds, 24 deaths and 43 injuries. In 2021there was 202 incidents of gunfire on school grounds, 49 deaths and 126 injuries.

These numbers are shocking and high. As the numbers of the last two gunfire incidents only in May month of this year will make it higher. It just barely weeks between them. They are happening at a rampant phase and never ceasing to end. This is an issue that cannot just be left alone. Children and innocent civilians are dying as a cause of all of this. It is a government who isn’t reacting or restricting the usage of firearms, which could stop this from happening. Instead, the representatives and the leaders of the nation is shielding the weapons and arms manufactures. If not they are dependent of the gun-lobby who is giving huge donations to their campaigns. Since, the deadly is persisting and nothing is stopping it from happening.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) and other organizations must have Congress by the balls. They must also have all the gun-friendly representatives in all important chambers or august houses of the 50 states. Since, there seems to be no end. The ones remembering Virginia Tech and Columbine High School ages ago. Would think these sorts of mass-shootings would be the stop of it. However, in the U.S. this has been continuing since then and is a never ending stories.

The only other thing that is constant is arming teachers, security guards and giving more guns in close proximity of the schools. The second constant is that the representatives are sending their thoughts and prayers, because their hands are tied or they are held at gun-point themselves. Since it seems impossible for them to either make legislation or even try to regulate the ability to purchase guns at any given moment. Instead it’s a free for all and everyone who with a pulse can get one.

That’s why the U.S. have a gun-governance problem and the price of that is the kids who dies on a semi-regular basis. When we know the U.S. isn’t able to fix the problem or the issues on the matter. They seems to need United Nations Experts to make a Report on the matter and handle that to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). Since they could make a case and find a solution on it. If not someone should petition the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) to discuss a possible peacekeeping force to stop this insecurity, which it really is…

United States is falling from grace. Their greatness is falling apart. Especially, when the Congress is so corrupt and hesitant to defend it’s own citizens. Because, that is the matter here. The U.S. comes to save people far away, but cannot manage to find measures to save kids in their own schools. That’s what’s tragic here… Peace.

U.S. Supreme Court allows politicians to get the donors to cover their own personal campaign “debts”

The American Dream is dying, one step at the time. Senator Ethan Roark Jr. of Sin City is becoming the norm of society. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas did deliberately violating campaign finance laws just so he could petition the courts and get the laws changed. He has achieved his mission and by doing so. The donors, the corporations and the Public Action Committee’s (PACs) can circumvent certain stipulations and indirectly pay a candidate. Therefore, the candidate or politician will be beholden to their interests and in the end… not work for the citizens, but for the companies, lobbyists and other interests groups who is paying for their campaign.

The United States of America isn’t getting any better, but only turning worse. The Supreme Court is using benign reasoning. Calling it a political speech to loan money to fund their own campaigns. While we know the loans will be paid by the donors and beneficiaries of the candidates in question. This is ensuring the corporate candidates and the ones who serve certain industries to get massive funding, which will be pocketed by the candidate itself.

A candidate can take out a loan to his/hers own campaign of a ONE MILLION US Dollars and after the campaigns the His/Hers for House/Senate can cover these debts with interests, which goes straight into the account of the politician. That is self-serving and free money, a bribe that ensures the interests of the companies or industries are taken care off. So, it is so weird that this getting allowed, but shows what the Supreme Court really believes in.

Here’s the vital information:

The U.S. Supreme Court’s conservative majority on Monday continued a decades long dismantling of federal campaign finance limits in a divided decision in favor of Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. The 6-3 ruling, written by Chief Justice John Roberts Jr., struck down Section 304 of the 2002 federal Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act that limited post-election contributions to repay a candidate’s personal campaign loans” (Zack Needles – ‘Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz Wins Federal Campaign Finance Limits Case Before U.S. Supreme Court’ 16.05.2022, Texas Lawyer, Law.com).

For the reasons set forth, we conclude that Cruz and the Committee have standing to challenge the threatened enforcement of Section 304 of BCRA. We also conclude that this provision burdens core political speech without proper justification. The judgment of the District Court is affirmed” (Federal Election Committee Versus Ted Cruz for Senate, May 16, 2022).

The next U.S. elections the campaigns can get vast loans from the candidates themselves. While later cash-that-in, as they are fundraising and getting donor funds from various of sources. All of these sources and lobbyists are doing so for their interests and policy needs. Therefore, we all know the gist of this.

The U.S. elections and campaign funding is already a corporate white-wash of funding. This is just tripling down and ensuring a “sign-on-fee” for politicians, which is only have been known for athletes. If not it is securing a means for an advance by “loaning” to your own campaign and getting a donor to cover the “debt”. So, in return the candidate will cash-in and get refunded this as personal revenue.

Ted Cruz and the current Supreme Court has made it possible for the rich candidates to enrich themselves on their own campaigns. In some regards, the way and manner of which they are elected has now also become a cash-grab for the wealthy representatives of Washington D.C. The Republican’s are clearing the swamp, but creating a bigger one. Where they are destroying the rules and opening up all avenues for creating personal wealth. While they are hoping the public doesn’t see or doesn’t care. Because, this is just a way of gaining more money on the job. Since the campaigns are part of the lifestyle and needs to get elected into office. Now the way of getting the job is also a possible way of getting vast profits. This is defended by need of political speech.

So, in the minds of the Supreme Court moving money from one account to another is a sign of political speech. Clearly, the banks of JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, CitiGroup and such will be really happy about this. They don’t even need to get this politicians to hold speeches and get paid. No, they can just donate funds, which will cover the “debts” of the candidates and that will go right into the pocket of whoever they deem fit for their cause. Peace.

Opinion: Biden is acting like an opposition politician ahead of the mid-terms…

Third, if the Court does overturn Roe, it will fall on our nation’s elected officials at all levels of government to protect a woman’s right to choose. And it will fall on voters to elect pro-choice officials this November. At the federal level, we will need more pro-choice Senators and a pro-choice majority in the House to adopt legislation that codifies Roe, which I will work to pass and sign into law” (Biden – ‘Statement by President Joe Biden, 03.05.2022).

The term of Joseph Biden as President has been a faulty one. It has been a corporate stooge and furthering the interests of the K Street Lobbyists. This period of time after President Donald J. Trump haven’ been about changes or making significant progress. Instead, the ones running the House of Representatives, the Senate and the Presidency is taking it easy on the job.

The Democratic Party is following party-lines and procedural lines, without any sort of results worth mentioning. Even under the despicable Trump term they got things done for their voters and they did what they could with 51 votes with a tie with VP Mike Pence. The Democrats won’t even do that or push that, as they have the option of doing so. The Republican’s did it. So why can’t Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi pull it off? Is that rule on for the GOP and the Republican’s when they have a gig to fulfil?

Just listen to his interview:

““We will be ready when any ruling is issued,” Biden said. If the Supreme Court overturns Roe ”it will fall on our nation’s elected officials at all levels of government to protect a woman’s right to choose,” he said. “And it will fall on voters to elect pro-choice officials this November,” the president said” (CNBC – ‘Biden defends abortion rights after leak of Supreme Court draft striking down Roe v. Wade’ 03.05.2022).

He sounds like his not in office and needs more people in Congress. That is partly true, especially in the Senate, as long as the Filibuster rule is followed. Nevertheless, the President could use the VP tie like mentioned, if they played the political games like the Republicans. However, we know the Democrats will never do that.

We know that Biden doesn’t have a spine or the way to be brutal. Neither does Schumer or Pelosi. They wouldn’t dare to challenge the norm and do that for the safety of woman across the Republic. No, they rather politicking and use it as a means to an end. They rather use this for the mid-terms than securing the lives of woman more safe. That’s really insane and show how little they care.

I called Biden weak-tea ahead of the polls, but his cold-tea and a tasteless fellow too. Instead of using the power, the leadership of two houses and pull the strings within own party to get things done. His asking for the citizens to further their power and get more Democrats elected. Like the public doesn’t know the Democrats already have the House and the Senate. However, that is wasted until the mid-terms.

The Roe V. Wade possibly overturned should be the first memo to start the codification or ensure the motion to create a law out of the ruling. As the Democrats has the power to do so. Nevertheless, that’s too much to ask… Biden is lacking the character and political ambition to even establish abortion rights in the Republic.

This just shows how disingenuous Biden and the Democrats are. They could fix it and make it happen. That is if they actually cared or was concerned. Instead, they are using this as a means to campaign. Because, it is not like the Biden administration can campaign on its achievements or policies it has ushered it. It is an empty shell of government and they are just busy cashing-in-the-checks. Peace.

Opinion: AOC’s Stunt 101

Congress Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have stirred a lot of controversy for wearing a white dress with the text “tax the rich”. That was done at the Met Gala of 2021, which is where all the celebrities and the rich is gathering. They are wearing fashionable clothes and showing themselves off, as they paying 35,000 US dollars just to partake in it.

The Met Gala was on 13th September 2021 and since then in political circles the dress has been discussed. That is all natural… however… she is not winning by doing this. Unless, she wanted headlines and get traction online. AOC is being discussed, but not in the manner of which she wanted.

It is just hypocrisy. This is the definition of weak-tea. The rich, the wealthy and the 1% wouldn’t be afraid with this. They are not scared or feels the out-of-touch demonstration. The only thing AOC is succeeding is to waste her time and her role as a legislator.

If she believes in the cause and wants to make a difference. AOC should assemble the squad. Pressure the ruling Democratic Party in Congress and get legislation passed, in which the rich will be more taxed. Make it in manner where the IRS will actually repeal the loopholes and the possibility to pay practically “nothing” while earning billions of dollars. That is what she should do and she have the opportunity to as well.

It is not like AOC is a lone activists and doesn’t have power. She is in the Squad and that’s supposed to be progressive. The Squad and it’s members are supposed to make difference. However, it has been a lot of hot-air and very little actions. That’s why this is a publicity stunt and nothing else.

AOC should put forward bills, motions and such where the taxes are aimed at the upper-class, the billionaires and the 1%. However, if she does that… she will have to battle the corporate-Democrats in combination with business-friendly Republicans. So, she will have no friends doing this and it will be a minority. Nevertheless, it would be a better look to come with an ironclad bill and tax regulations to change this…

The dress is just a stunt. It is as briefly cool as G Unit music-video “Stunt 101” and when 50 Cent drives the car straight out of the window of the car dealership. Just as you remember that and catches the speed. The same is what this dress does…

However, AOC have such more power and ability to do something about it. Instead she is writing motions sending congratulations to Bangladesh’s 50th Liberation Day. That doesn’t cost the state anything and neither is it controversial. But to fight for a just reform of taxes will be and that will target the individuals/corporations who funds the political parties. This is why it’s a bit hectic to do so and they are earning fortunes on the misfortune of others. That’s why this isn’t changing and it’s easier to come with these acts of self-importance compared to actual acts of work in Congress.

She should call the Squad and pressure Nancy Pelosi to an inquiry and make a taxation reform. We know that will not happen and it’s so simple to just show-up in dress at a Met Gala, instead of pushing legislation through the chambers of Congress. Peace.

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: Daniel Hale follows a pattern of the U.S. incriminating whistleblowers

In the United States of America it is not acceptable to be a whistleblower or leak vital information of war-crimes, or even secrets from within the Republic. If a person does that… than the person will be charged and face serious crime like the puniative actions of the Espionage Act of 1917. 

Daniel Hale is the latest victim of this. Who leaked about the lethal drone programme and documents who was connected about this program. Hale showed the journalists documents, which produced articles that explained the military drone programme. So, that the general public knows what the U.S. Army does and to what extent it uses it. This would and could easily been kept under wraps, as a “secret” missions and only known by the U.S. Commanders and their allies overseas.

In the same way the U.S. has gone after Julian Assange of the WikiLeaks, Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning or Reality Winner. There are so many who can easily be mentioned as people who leaked intel and gotten into legal trouble.

Hale isn’t significant in this case, but the latest victim. As the United States, no matter what Party has the President or the majority in Congress. They are all seeking to keep these secret “missions” hidden. The war-crimes and the crimes against humanity isn’t supposed to be leaked.

If it is torturing “terrorists” in Guantanamo or in Abu Ghraib, Iraq. The leaks have shown what the U.S. is willing to do and it has been of public interest to know this. Because, the state and the Pentagon wanted to keep this a secret. These was the words and the programs that the imperial army didn’t want to have out.

The U.S. was supposed to keep this things hidden in an archive and if so… deal with it internally. That’s why Hale and other people are troublesome. They dare to challenge this and they deceive the empire. They are as bold as showing the true face of the Washington D.C. and it’s foreign policies.

This isn’t shocking, but follows a pattern. There are certain things Washington and its authorities never accepts. That is to leak what sort of war-crimes or possible crimes against the humanity the U.S. Army is up to elsewhere. This is never acceptable, but nevertheless everyone else is supposed to be transparent and held accountable. Though that never seems to apply to U.S. and their schemes of armed interventions across the globe. 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.
