Opinion: Tired of certain types of Politicians who are snake-oil salesmen with their political speeches and writings!

Camus-2_wide-d6b66c229f4fffa53120bcad9534adff8b9b27d1-s900-c85

“Every time I hear a political speech or I read those of our leaders, I am horrified at having, for years, heard nothing which sounded human. It is always the same words telling the same lies. And the fact that men accept this, that the people’s anger has not destroyed these hollow clowns, strikes me as proof that men attribute no importance to the way they are governed; that they gamble – yes, gamble – with a whole part of their life and their so called ‘vital interests.”

Albert Camus

It already decades since Albert Camus graced this blue earth with more water than soil, still his words could be used today and his wisdom is still able to question our leaders of today. The resembling manner and tone, the bristling and blatant words that is still has the sharpness of a blade and cut into the bone.

Why? Why can it cut because the manners of politicians decades ago, seemingly is the same today. As the lies and deceit hasn’t left the politics. Neither has the foul play to gain power instead of serving the public. In general theory the Local Council Members, State Representatives, Governors, Senators, Members of Parliament (MPs) and the Executives are supposed to honour their pledges and be accountable to their caucus, constituency or district. Instead they are more loyal to their own careers than serving their voters. So often feels like a broken bridge between the public, the voters and the representative.

The bridge as they only appear right before the die is cast, sorry, the voters has to cast their ballot or polls as their job is on the line; their legitimacy and their relations has to be kept in upkeep as the liability towards the public sphere is important to promise and pledge to fix housing, roads, hospitals, civic education and save the kids. If not they will save the nation or district from biblical disasters, terrorists and unknown dangers.

We have all heard it and know the clichés and the artificial blend of phrases in a rhetorical manner, especially in a coded manner that could fence the xenophobia, the fear and the destructive tone. Some uses the coded language not to promise or really say that they will build the bridge or fix the schools; more that they see the effort and will stay strong together with the politician and his ruling regime.

Still, we accept this for the faith that the fake and lively attitude to collect the votes from us. The reality is that the lies and fakes to satisfy the play of guards and the sovereign measures of needed institutions to control and have oversight of the state. We should still ask questions to the needed for the lies in speeches and care as the politicians rather spend their time with family, than cutting bonds on roads in the province of nowhere with a local mayor who hate the guts of the Infrastructure Minister who feels betrayed by the locals as they wouldn’t vote for his party if their lives dependent on it.

The seasoned man, who has been in rain have made you wet, who has been in the sun has gotten burned. The measures men does to secure itself with umbrellas and jacket to keep each other dry, the same with sun-cream and others to keep the skin-away from the burning sun. Therefore the men who does so should also be able to pick away the men and woman who lies for their trade.

The quack-sellers and the snake-oil salesmen are in the trades of the Politics. Therefore some politicians earn coinage on their pivoting, their change of heart and their tricks to always stay in the good graces. But this is the not the men of solitude or the men of honour or trustworthy. You never know what they really stand for or what their ethical background as their choices are more a popularity contest of American Idol or Big Brother than of politics.

That is the reason why men like Nigel Farage, Donald J. Trump or other rascals with very little soul for their initial policies or political framework can get space in the political landscape as our tabloid headline dramatics can give space and airtime on radio and TV for their message. The message creates high ratings and secures advertisement monies to the Media Houses who couldn’t care less about the outcome of an election as they are there for profits; not for the common-good or service delivery of the politicians.

So we are at the time of day where the words of Albert Camus are righteous as the politicians are not telling about secret meetings, keeping the main objectives between the government funding, the multi-national companies and the trade-agreements; also with the bilateral agreements between nations and international organizations that are happening between the closed doors and is why the dossiers through whistle-blower’s are hurting the campaigns and the national security. But most likely also destroying the façade the politicians create and their level of PR expertise and also beholden to the laws they are supposed to keep.

The mentality of this together with the double-edged swords of public perception can cross through the flesh and destroys careers of an ordinary politician as the sexual adventures of Dominic Strauss-Kahn (DSK), but a few blunders haven’t stopped the Republican Nominee Trump. But at these times the lies and fakery seems to let him win over the American nation, instead of them repelling from his words.

So the political speech should be coded and with current words that express the views and place in the political landscape. Still, today there are more worrying signs of the way it is portrayed and accepted as the men behind the words are not stopped or feasible destroy the character not give the politician the space on the mainstream media.

This should be a worrying and not be a place our modern society should be in, where we let stone-age rhetoric and hatred towards fellow humans beings get away with their malicious attempts of gripping power by the teleprompter and by the social media machine of the political parties and the PR experts supporting the Politicians. Therefore the Citizens Kane of the world usually gets discredited on their way to public office, but now it is free-for-all.

citizenkane

Just like Citizen Kane as Charles Foster Kane in his final speech in his campaign for becoming Governor of New York:

“It is no secret that I entered upon this campaign with no thought. That I could be elected Governor of this state!  It is now no secret that every straw vote, every independent pole, shows that I will be elected. And I repeat to you – my first official act as Governor will be to appoint a special District Attorney to arrange for the indictment, prosecution and conviction of Boss Edward G. Rogers!” (Citizen Kane, 1941).

Other Politicians of these days are convicting fellow politicians without trials as a political gain and earn coinage on their bad moral. This is their moral and bad judgement that deserves to be punished with conviction and getting on trial through going courtside for their acts and activity. So with this in mind, the lying political speeches and does it with vital interest of the public sphere.

Main question after this triad from me; why should we accept his behaviour and accept these men leading us without any real discredit or any real consequence for the politician? This is what the society gets together with the public who is eating the bullshit from the politicians. But, that isn’t it, right? Peace.

Tabloid årskavalde

Tilgi meg, nå korter jeg veldig ned og gjør det lite. Selv om alle sakene kunne tatt flere siders informasjon/refleksjoner. Derfor går jeg tabloid og skriver kort og presist. Usikkerhet om det står skrevet. Google it bro!

Arabiske revolusjonener i Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Syria og Bahrain. Flere presidenter ble enten arbeidsledige eller mistet livet. Salim Selah, Ben Ali, Hosni Moubarak og Gadaffi har mistet sitt embete og framtiden i Tunisia, Libya Egypt og Yemen vil uansett hvordan du ser på være anerledes enn 2011 i 2012.

FRP politikere har blitt tatt med buksene nede, det er jo tradisjon! Så hvorfor nevner jeg det, fordi vi trenger en pause før mer seriøse greier.

Mugabe, Museveni og Biya er de presidentene i Afrika som har holdt sin posisjon lengst. Mugabe har sittet siden 1980. Museveni har sittet siden 1986 og Biya har sittet siden 1982. Uventet var det at juntaen i Niger lot Mahamadou Issoufou ta embete etter flere kupp i landet de siste årene. I Nigeria ikke uventet vant Goodluck Jonathan valget. I Ghana vant John Atta Mills over Fru Rawlings i kampen om å være kandidat for NDC i neste valg. Idag er John Atta Mills presidenten i Ghana.

Vi i Norge klarte å gå tom for meierismør, så nå selges det i Desember for små pakker smør på finn.no for 75 kr for 15 gram. Overpris? Næh, seriøst? Oh yeah.

I Frankrike har valgkampen før nesteår begynt allerede med at Sarzoksy mistet sin fordel og sosialistene får mer støtte. I MDG har de valgt Eva Joly som kandidat. Ikke at hun mest sannysnlig blir president, men gøy er det.

Triste nyheten er 22. Juli. R.I.P. Alle de som mistet livet. Forferdelig dag.. for Norge og demokratiet, nå må vi bare verne det vi som ser på en verdiful samfunnsystem, slikt at de som er slike som han ikke vinner.

Vulkanen i Island stengte luftromemt for fly i en kort stund av året.

Ikke bare FRPs politikere har iår blitt tatt med buksene nede. DSK Dominic Strauss-Khan IMF direktøren mistet både tittelen, muligheten i presidentvalget i Frankrike og sin uskyld i år. Når vi snakker om Uskyld. Så har FIFA valgt ha holde det i 2018 i Russland og 2022 i Quatar. To hovdemedlemmer i FIFA ble også tatt for korrupsjon rett før avstemming. Mystisk at de beste alternativene gikk vekk i første runde? Neida, Sepp (B)latter viser bare sin Sveitiske diplomatiske evner..

Flere Afrikanske land har jobbet med å gjøre homoseksualitet(HS) forbudt. Dette har medført at flere vestlige land har truet med å kutte direkte bistandsmidler. Slikt som UK og Nederland har kuttet flere milliarder til Uganda. Nigeria har lovfestet med å drive på med HS så kan du dømmes til 14 års fengsel.. Mer skjer her definitivt.

Vi hadde ett kommune/fylkestingsvalg som ble naturligvis forsinket debatt. Hvor Høyre gikk kraftig opp. AP beholdt sin posisjon og Venstre gjorde det greit. FRP mistet en del stemmer. MPG fikk flere kandidater inn enn noen gang tidligere.

I London gikk demonstranter så til aksjon at Tottenham start av sesongen ble utsatt.

Kenyanske borgere og ledere dro som følge til ICC Haag for det som skjedde i forrige valg i 2008. Ingenting har skjedd siden. Får vente på om det blir reaksjon til Odinga Odinga og de andre som var med på dette.

Equatorial Guineas president Obiang tok over som leder av African Union med VP Ping. AU har ikke klart å ha ett klart fokus i Somilia hvor Burundi, Uganda og Kenya har stryker inne. Heller ikke løst Gbagbo i Elfenbenskysten, hvor Frankrike sente en hær og kvittet seg med ham. Lite skjedde også med de to fredsbevarende samtalene i Libya. UK og Frankrike sammen med NATO, hvor Norge hadde kampfly inne, tok Gadaffi ut. Også revolusjonære tropper gjorde dette, men uten luftstyrken til NATO, hadde det nok ikke gått så fort.

Sudan ble delt i to. Sør-Sudan er den yngste staten for øyeblikket. Gratulere til folket og verdens nye hovedsete Juba, Sør-Sudan. Salva Kiir er president i landet.

I DRC ble Kabila utropt vinner, selv om hovedfienden Tshisekedi har også nevnt seg selv til vinner av valget.

Russland har hatt valg hvor Putin vant. 100 000 har demonstrert mot resultat. Resten av året og neste år vil det sikkert skje mer.

Lil Wayne solgte til dobbel platinum. Ikke at albumet holdt noe kvalitet, men det er visst godt nok til å selge 2m i USA. I mellomtiden solgte Success is Certain gold(500k).

540 dager etter forrige regjering gikk av. Så har endelig Beliga en regjering som er blitt tatt i ed hos kong Albert II. Gratulere Belgia!

Trekant sesong 2 startet, ikke som lovet med følelser, heller flere teknikker. NRK viser igjen hvorfor de kan og driter i at folk klager på programmene. Venter på at noen klager på Skavlans kvalme Norsk-Svenske dialekt. Gud velsigne rikskringkastingen. Fedrelandssalmen spilles forsatt tidlig morgen på P1, så nå satser jeg på at dagen din er reddet.

Det har skjedd mye mer og masse jeg har glemt. Pigade, for ett år 2011 har vært. Regner med at neste år blir like fartsfylt. God advent. Peace.
