Opinion: Roger Stone reminds us that power corrupts

We are learning by the minute for all the four resigned government prosecutors and the ones whose working with Attorney General William Barr are all corruptible to give a lenient charge to a friend of the President, Roger Stone. That is what we are learning.

We are not learning the value of rule of law or justice, neither that the Courts or the Department of Justice is independent from the White House. No, they are entangled and co-operating as a joint force for their friends and partners. Therefore, the enemies of the White House might be targeted, while friends will walk-off easy. Even if the friends have worked against the law, conspired to breach of public trust and not obligated their role as a person who should have been labelled a foreign agent for instance.

As long as that person works for the Trump Organization or the White House. That doesn’t matter, AG Barr got your back and so does Trump. They don’t care if they are involving foreign powers to leak internal documents from the campaign of another presidential candidate. If they are conspiring to tarnish another candidates opportunities and family relations. That doesn’t matter, as long as they are working for the grander cause, which just happens to be the Trump’s own winning.

That is the reality of it all. That is the truth in this moment. Roger Stone, the man who was connected with WikiLeaks, who talked with central people in the Trump Campaign and who knew more than what he told the authorities. The man who obstructed justice and who intimidated witnesses for the Special Counsel Robert Mueller. That man is getting lenient jail time, because his a loyal man to Trump.

AG Barr is doing what Jeff Sessions couldn’t do. He recused himself and gave way, so the Deputy AG had to do something. Both of them are gone now. Others has resigned or been sacked by this Presidency. So, only the loyalists are there, the ones not caring about rule of law or justice. Just the ones loyal to the President and his cause. The cause which is to please the President by any means and use the office to enlarge his rule.

Roger Stone is a hack, but his Trump’s own personal hack. His the Nixonian  character in the chambers of the President’s men. A man who will use all means to further both himself politically, but also the President. That is the sort of man Stone is, this is why he was useful and been a part of Trump’s Presidency.

Now his facing time, 4 prosecutors have resigned because of Stone and the DOJ’s actions. They are not caring about the implications, but moving along. These men doesn’t value the Constitution and neither the law. Only blind submission to one man. That is what it has gone down too. The statutes, the legislation or anything is far-sided. What matters is the will of Trump.

So, now this is what America is and how it operates. There is nothing to learn here, just another tin-pot dictator in the flesh. No difference between the acts of Trump and other half-baked President’s for life. Using the office to help friends and allies, while letting their enemies burn. That is what this man does and its evident.

We can just point at the Penguin aka Roger Stone. His the proof. Peace.

Opinion: Sorry, but not sorry for the resignation of DHS Secretary Kristjen Nielsen!

That Department for Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen has now resigning and still it isn’t good news. It is just someone who has offered her greed for being in power, by defending someone indefensible. That is who she is and how she will be remembered.

This former DHS Secretary will be remembered for the way the she handled the Zero Tolerance Policy. The way she has defended the policy of separating children from the parents on the border. The way the state has built camps for kids and let them even lose their lives there. If not traumatise the kids and even cage them in. Depending on which private firm the state had given contracts to do this for ICE and the DHS.

Therefore, I am not felling sorry for Nielsen. She has written herself into the Zero Tolerance Policy History and will be remembered for the two years of tears, pain and sorrow, she has helped push on innocent people crossing the border. Which shouldn’t be done in this and treating the people like they are illegal. There are procedures and laws to enforce this, there always has been for sovereign republic.

However, making them criminal by passing over the border is totally outlandish. Instead of ensuring they are following the codes and the justice for everyone. Not everyone passing over the border would have the right or opportunity to get visa to stay. Nevertheless, the state shouldn’t act upon them this way. It is injustice to the innocent children and tormenting the parents for trying to find a better life or even trying to live the “American Dream”.

Like D’Angelo Gore reported in June 2018: “DHS told us the “zero-tolerance” policy went into effect on May 5, and between May 5 and June 9, there had been 2,342 children separated from their parents. Contrary to what Nielsen claimed, other administration officials have acknowledged a change in policy to serve as a deterrent to illegal immigration” (Gore – ‘Nielsen’s Rhetoric on Family Separations’ 20.06.2018, FactCheck.Org).

The Texas Observer reported this also in June 2018: “In a letter sent last week, 19 special agents in charge at ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations unit said that ICE’s controversial detention and deportation policies have made it hard for them to conduct investigations into threats to national security, organized crime, narcotics smuggling and human trafficking. “HSI’s investigations have been perceived as targeting undocumented aliens, instead of the transnational criminal organizations that facilitate cross border crimes impacting our communities and national security,” the special agents in charge wrote in the previously unreported letter. They also wrote that “the perception of HSI’s investigative independence is unnecessarily impacted by the political nature” of ICE’s immigration enforcement. “Many jurisdictions continue to refuse to work with HSI because of a perceived linkage to the politics of civil immigration.”” (Jason Bunch – ‘ICE Criminal Investigators Ask to Be Distanced from Detentions, Deportations in Letter to Kirstjen Nielsen’ 27.06.2018, Texas Observer).

We can see what her work did. She tried to defend and even downplay the narrative, as the innocent civilian migration, the asylum seekers was taken into custody and the kids separated by the authorities. This even made it worse for the same authorities to investigate or follow the illegal crime of drugs. Which has been part of the issue, this Trump Administration has used as a pawn in the Zero Tolerance Policy. Even making it worse to investigate that, because of the horrific tactic of separating families on the border.

She is despicable, she is part of the paradigm that brought the “Shameful Era” back in the United States. Together with Stephen Miller, Sebastian Gorka, Stephen Bannon, Jeff Sessions and the list goes on.

Now, she will not be the DHS Secretary anymore, however, she will always be remembered for caging in kids. For saying to the world that no kids died in the detention camps, when it did. She defended the evil of men. Kristjen stood by this and worked hard to downplay the results of the acts of the Zero Tolerance Policy on the Southern Border.

We can clearly see and remember what she did. Her legacy is sealed by her actions. The words done in defending something no-one should defend. Nielsen has done this to herself. The acts and words are defining her time in Office.

I don’t feel sorry for her, she made the cake and has to eat it. The ones defending her doesn’t care about violations against humanity. They don’t care about the innocent who was violated and taken into custody, because of her enforcement of the Zero Tolerance Policy. That is what will stain her name and her memory. Peace.
