Opinion: Manchin is the King without a Throne

It is evident the longer this lasts and this tenure of President Joe Biden. That the Democratic Party doesn’t have all the ducks in the row. Neither does the party have good enough whips to get legislation through Congress. If they did, the majority House would have easily passed a bill and the Senate would have passed it too. Just so it could be finished and in the end signed by the President.

Alas, Biden is stuck with renegade and moderate corporate Democratic Senators who isn’t willing to budge. Joe Manchin of West Virginia is one of them. A man who is willing to block and not sign a Infrastructure bill and add additional spending. While the same man has most likely accepted tax-cuts for corporations and huge spending on the military. Therefore, his reasoning is most likely flawed.

Manchin is a mediocre man. A man who could easily pose as a Republic. At least when he accepts “small” government taxes for the rich and corporation. However, will not spend additional tax-payers funding on roads, rails and infrastructure. Neither, support other government services, which is in dire need. As the aftermath and current time the public is suffering from the global pandemic. It is not like the spending bill on the infrastructure bill going to solve all of this, but it will most likely patch some of the hurt.

However, Manchin rather speak softly from a million-dollar yacht or his mansion. This man who earns fortunes on the coal-industry. He will not support the green industry, because that hurts his own businesses. That is the sort of conflict of interests a politician shouldn’t have. His involved in one trade and rather save that one. Than actually prepare the Republic of the future. That is selfishness and not care for the voters in his constituency. They are just pawns in this game of fortune for his own benefits.

If Manchin alone gets to fiddle with the bill for own self interests and lobbying concerns. Than you know that he does for the gains of his own bank-accounts. This man doesn’t care about the jobs or the climate change. No, he just wants to pocket fat-checks and ensure that his industry is alive at any costs.

Manchin can soon go out and sell “clean coal” like Trump did back-in-the-day. Because, there is no difference between these too. They are both sell-outs for the industries and the corporate agenda. He don’t care about the environment or the future.

In a sense, this man is a self-proclaimed king without a throne. His a king with a domain and title. A senator who believes he has the supreme power and rights to get the final in everything. It would be refreshing if the Majority Leader of the Senate Chuck Schumer had addressed this man and gotten him in line. However, they don’t have the character or the heart to do so. They rather bow their knees to their king and pleas for mercy…

This diet-Republican isn’t what the people are seeking for. Neither is following the will of his own state. His just listening to his own pocket and not dwelling on the concerns of West Virginia even. They are just pawns for him and his recklessness might cost the Democrats in the Mid-Terms. Since, they are not showing progress or positive changes since Trump left office. This bill might have changed the narrative a little bit. However, with the likes of Manchin.

Don’t expect much. Peace.

Opinion: Biden don’t believe in the freedom of speech

Well, during the Trump Administration it was courtesy of the Republican President to call the media the “fake news” and not address the media. They only sent out the Spokesperson of the White House and let bygones be bygones.

These days with the Democratic Party President Joe Biden. Things are not getting better. In 2021, the true nature of his administration is getting out. Not only the nonchalant lecturing of the world. However, they are also seizing networks, media houses webpages in a raid from the FBI. Just like pirates taking away content and news pages ability to report. That is done as a sort of display of “national security” but really to stifle the press in other regions of the world.

This is all falling back on the Executive Order from June 9th 2021:Executive Order on Protecting Americans’ Sensitive Data from Foreign Adversaries “. Where President Biden furthers the powers and continues the path of Trump to go after foreign sites and web-pages. In this regard has no been used against news organizations in the Middle East. Which happens to report in another way than the Washington D.C. accepts. Because, they we’re located on .Com the U.S. say they have jurisdiction to take these sites down. Therefore, they can internationally go after people online. As long as they have a certain power with U.S. law there.

That’s why we can see that the U.S. have now used these powers and by the President who has given his authorities these powers to seize these new-sites. That says it all by the lack of freedom of speech, liberty to post online and produce content. When a nation can go across borders and close news networks or news-sites belonging elsewhere. The lesson here… is that Biden and his government doesn’t really believe in the freedom of the press. Only to the anointed ones and the ones who parrots their agendas. If they differs and has a .com. They should be worried…

That the U.S. does this only shows their true heart and their lack of integrity. That they are demeaning and imperial in action. The Biden administration rather block and silence outside media. Especially, if it see it as a resistance or reporting, which differs from what the U.S. deems undesirable. That is how it looks and Biden cannot run away from this.

Biden and his Executive Order just prolongs and extends the powers Trump had issued in his time. There is no difference here. Only that one man masks as a hero. While the other is the supposed villain. Ironically, Biden is doing the same and furthering the legacy of the interference of the imperial U.S. state. They are doing this online, but it shows their real intentions and what they are gunning for.

I wonder, how would the U.S. have reacted if the PBS, VOX or anything was blocked or jammed online in the nations, which the U.S. has silenced media from?

That seems to only be the fair thing to do. Why should just the U.S. be allowed to silence media? Why shouldn’t Syria and Iran block U.S. media houses now?

Biden deserves to be pushed for this. As his administration and his government is blocking foreign news-sites and news networks. What rights does he have to do this?

Now, the governments of Middle East should retaliate and answer this. Not only being mull and look at it. They should answer back and block U.S. media from their shores. That only makes sense. As the U.S. Imperialism in 2021 needs to be retorted and this act is disgusting. Peace.

Opinion: Biden must be so forgetful

Let’s get this straight: How would it be if the United States were viewed by the rest of the world as interfering with the elections directly of other countries, and everybody knew it? What would it be like if we engaged in activities that he is engaged in? It diminishes the standing of a country that is desperately trying to make sure it maintains its standing as a major world power” – President Joe Biden (16.06.2021).

The United States government have over the years used their power, their might and ability to get puppets and friendly government elected. If not, they have overthrown peacefully elected people to get in leaders who are working directly for Washington D.C.

The US has interfered not only during elections, but after to get their leaders in office. The CIA and other organizations in proxy have intervened. The U.S. have spared any sort of resorts and resources on getting their people in power. This being in Latin America where the U.S. have installed their regimes and they have been working for corporate American interests.

That being Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatamala, Chile, Bolivia and so on. The list is endless. Some are saying the U.S. has interfered in 45 countries since the Second World War. The U.S. installed their puppet in Zaire, the now Democratic Republic of Congo after they helped to assassinate the elected President Patrice Lumumba. That’s how the DRC had decades of despotic rule with Mobutu.

That’s how the U.S. rolls and works. They are using their power and might. They have their agents and their front-organizations to dismantle and ensure their interests are secured on foreign soil. The U.S. doesn’t value democratic values, they only value US dollars and profitable enterprises run by U.S. corporations.

So, when President Biden says what he says. Does he think we forget about Bolivia during Trump and the failed “Wonga” coup of Venezuela? Like does he think we are this dumb or naive?

That we don’t know what the U.S. has done and have been willing to do? Like installing the Shah in Iran and making it a pariah state after the Iranian revolution leading to his fall. That’s just what the U.S. does and leaves behind open wounds. The likes of supporting interventions in nations like Libya, but not having a clear path after overthrowing a President-for-Life Gadaffi. Therefore, Biden should take a step back and maybe have a few history lessons.

The U.S. has a history of using their army, organizations and the CIA has been implicated in overthrowing governments. The U.S. have been involved in coups and in election interference to get their folks in power. To think otherwise is to revise history and forget what the U.S. has done over the years.

The U.S. has installed and secured their interests above all else. They have later preached “democracy” and “liberty”. Though it has been hallow and shallow, as we all know why they did this in the first place. That was to get their value for their US dollars in that Republic. This is the gist of it and its no joke.

Biden please take responsibility. This is not funny. We know and you should know. The U.S. have exported its imperialism over the years. Time to take responsibility and be accountable. Not only think flattery and words like these will skim over it. I hate to say it, but it won’t.

We know what the U.S. has done and been committed to do. I wouldn’t be shocked, if suddenly Biden took down someone who would turn to Russia/China anytime soon. Instead of being loyal to Washington. Peace.

Opinion: Biden have a pitiless job ahead

Yesterday on the 20th January 2021 the inauguration of Joe Biden happened. President Biden has a mountain to climb ahead. That’s not his fault, but his predecessor who was inept and incompetent at his job. Biden has more issues to fix, than what he had as the Vice-President during the first Obama Term.

Now, there is not only the humongous need for swift intervention and planning to stagnate a crisis with the COVID-19 or the Coronavirus. Which the previous administration downplayed and didn’t really stomach. They only let people die and didn’t properly intervene. Trump Administration and their COVID-19 Taskforce was a useless entity. Only to booster business and enterprises in favour of the government. It wasn’t made to stop the spread of the virus or actually make a difference. That is why the spread is so massive, the amounts of death is spiralling out and by the time Biden became President. The numbers of deceased in the Republic because of it was the amount of 400,000 citizens. That all happened because of the inept Trump administration.

Yes, the commentators will now blame all of these on Biden. Biden will be thrown into hot fire and be burned. The test is if the White House can defend what they do and how they are fixing it. They need to address it properly and let science do its work. As the previous bastard-in-chief didn’t care and thought pseudo-science and conspiracy theories could heal the wounds. Alas, it is never like that.

Other, than that… Biden has to fix the economy. Work on the growing deficits and the negative rates hitting the financial institutions. As yet another Democrat have to clear the air after a Republican botches a working economy. Where the safeguards and financial integrity have been traded on quick-get-rich schemes and less oversight. That has been key things done in the Trump years. Also, the tax-cuts and enriching the elites, while the state has cut on the basics and support system for the poorest. Social security and Medicaid for all have been hit hard, but big-men in business have priority citizens.

Biden has to also work in a very split society. Created with amplified visions of the Republicans. Who rather see the Republic burning than listening to any sort of facts. The President have to look into, investigate and prioritize criminal proceedings not only into the insurrection of the Capitol. The President has to also investigate fellow Congress members and Senators who was in on it. Not to forget the need to look into Right Wing Extremists and militias who has thrived during the Trump Presidency. These has been shielded and the authorities have given them a silent “pass”. Now, it is time to do something about it.

Biden has a lot of work ahead. Not only write Executive Orders. Even though he got revoke certain aspects. He got to go head-on. Show that he is different than Trump, but also show integrity and accountability. Just as the most corrupt and incompetent administration has left the White House. The rampant nepotism and lack of protocol have to be investigated. All the breaches of codes by the former administration. There was so many who broke the Hatch Act and other codes while in office. The Trump Administration needs to be investigated in the Foreign Emoluments Clause and if their associates did violate this in their tenure. That only makes sense now. It will hurt the Republican party, but they need to be accountable and take responsible for their actions.

Joe Biden has so many hurdles. Not only does his Secretary of State have to prove that the United States cares, but also have some plans for their policies. As in the past one, these could be bought and fixed by simple gestures to the Man on the Throne. That has to change now. Especially, if the US is back to normalcy. We know that will take time, as the Trump administration ensured the Biden administration starts with no ready vetted cabinet members or appointments. Just to show their vicious, loser mentality and how they don’t care about stability.

The Biden administration have only hard work ahead and a lot of dirt to clean out. Biden better handle with not only caution, but with finesse. As there will be no easy way out and the only way is face the harsh realities. This is an unforgiving role and a place very few wants to go. He has to fix and clean a mess. A shambles of a government and make people trust it again.

Trump proved he could break a system. Trump proved the ills of society. Now, Biden needs to heal and fix the system. That will hurt, be painful and be a process. It will not happen over night, but is a needed task. Especially, if the world is supposed to trust the US and its values. Because, those are in the bin and someone has to rehash it.

That is Biden right now. That isn’t a fun journey. Neither is it reality TV or a fun segment on SNL. No, its dedication and honouring principals. What Biden should know and see is that those principals and codes are worthless to the Republicans. That is why he has to shook them and get them into submission. Just like they do to Democrats when they are in power. Since, the Bi-Partisanship only matters to Democrats, but not to Republicans in power. That is why Biden has to seal the deals and be fierce at some point. Not only humble and show humility. He needs to be strong and be resilient.

As all the ills of the previous administration will be put on him. Even if it isn’t true. However, that is how unforgiving his task is. To takeover after a train-wreck of an administration must be restless. The Biden administration needs to revitalize and rejuvenate departments, which has been weaponized by the previous ones. That will not be easy, but a needed task. Unless, the President will have civil servants and other appointments working against him. Peace.

Opinion: Biden “blinks out” with Blinken

We mustlead from a position of strength –with unrivaled military might, a dynamic economy and the unmatched strength of our human resources” Anthony Blinken on 19th November 2014

It is now reported that President-Elect Joe Biden going to appoint Anthony Blinken as the Secretary of State. The Democratic Party and this shows the signs of what the Biden administration will do. However, this shift isn’t that visible with a character like Blink.

Who used his time out of office as a Lobbyist and formed the company WestExecs. The WestExecs are said to be funded by defence and military companies. Now, his returning to office by being appointed Biden. Blinken worked as Deputy Secretary of State between 2015 to 2017.

A man who prefers using “tough diplomacy” and a man who votes for warfare. This man had no issues bombing Libya or Iraq. The man is proud to be in the Situation Room when they United States killed Osama Bin Laden. Therefore, this man is a war-hawk and his coming to office under Biden.

So Blinken will not change the methods and the means of the American army. This man will further expansion and the “empire” with usage of the US Army. Expect him to vouch for military operations, as long as he see it benefiting US interests.

That’s why this is not a positive appointment. His a man who has used the years to enrich himself on lobbying for military contractors. This man has no issues going to war or fighting a war.

Blinken is the perfect for Pentagon. They have gotten a man of their heart. This man will not come with progressive ideas in concern of the Foreign Affairs. His a neo-con sort of “democratic” bureaucrat who Biden trusts.

Therefore, there will be no big shift in how the US manoeuvrers. They will maybe be more “diplomatic” in language and shows some restraints. However, the will be a null sum game. As the US will continue their prospects abroad and further their interests.

I don’t have faith that their wreckening foreign policies will not cease. The Trump Administration was brash and erratic. The Biden Administration might be more subtle. However, their ideals on Foreign Affairs might not change so much. Maybe even send more troops to Syria and Afghanistan. They might even go into Somalia. Who knows, but the US will not be without War-Hawks in their governments apparently.

Blinken is one of them. Just like Bolton was under Trump. Blinken will be under Biden. The only difference, is the language, but the bullets will not care if you speak softy or brash. The hurt and the pain is still same when it hits the skin.

I am not positive to Blinken. He will go to war… he will find arrangements and make reasons to go to war. This wouldn’t shock me.

Maybe he could surprise me, but he has a history and he could easily repeat it in office. Peace.

US Election 2020: Hey young world, do we need to know about Pennsylvania?

As the world are following with a kind eye the 2020 Elections in the United States of America. Nearly any citizens needs to know what happens in Hicksville, USA. Like it should matter to the villagers of rural communities in far away land. People who will never visit the United States or have any interests in what is happening there anyway.

It is just like they have been the Empire, but they are not anymore. The US have been losing ground in the world. That is their own making by ditching international agreements and not following protocol with international bodies, which the rest of the world does. The dropping out of the Paris Agreement and others have weaken the US standing in the world. It is just a matter of time before the Republic’s debt and debt-collectors keep calling. Then, the US government cannot spend like it does and have the current advantages it does have.

Alas, why should we care if Wisconsin does this or that? Utah? Pennsylvania? Do we care about William Penn and whatever he did? That Pittsburg is the capitol and Benjamin Franklin opened a Zoo. We as international citizens shouldn’t need to know this. Should we care what happens in Harrisburg?

That is what is weird about this. How the sudden fixation with minor voting districts and gerrymandering of the United States. In a nation of a duopoly with the Republicans and Democrats. They have both held the power and inter-changed. Mixing it up and flipping states.

These combined with the money in politics, the use of Super-PACs and other techniques. The US system where the Courts and the party can change the rules even after the first ballots are cast. Clearly, the US system is far from perfect … and has lots of misgivings. Still, this Republic has the audacity to lecture others. When they have far from a grand Democracy to begin with.

This is why as an outsider it feels weird to wonder how Pennsylvania is going. Why should I care about Pennsylvania or Utah? Arizona or Flordia? Care about Florida because George W. Bush had the Supreme Court to vouch for him and now possibly Trump got the same?

Now its a battle between Trump and Biden. Biden seems to win, but in this system. There will be litigation and possible twisting changes to alter it. Even the Electoral College can put the whole votes out of whack. So, in mind with that the popular vote is outbalanced by a second electoral body. If that doesn’t work… then you have the Courts and if that doesn’t work. You have the Supreme Court to end the polls.

The US Election is important even if the US is a failing giant. It is stumbling and walking in the shadow of former greatness. It has been a Republic going to war and using imperial means. That is why some are favourable of the Republic and others despise it. Some hope it falls into obscurity and become a big Banana Republic. Which have been the trajectory under Trump.

Now that might change with Biden. They might alter its racist and xenophobic ways. Also, become more friendly to asylum seekers and refugees. Going back to its ideals, but we cannot know. What we all should ask ourselves.

Should we care what happens in Pennsylvania? I don’t know, but it shouldn’t have priority for everyone. Yes, it is still a big deal who is the President of the US, but we shouldn’t need to know how they vote in Harrisburg or in Pittsburg. Peace.
