It does not matter if he has the most perfect and most suited address of internal American matters or international yesterday in the Congress. That do not affect me B. Since his Executive Orders, Internal Memo’s and all the other tools that he uses to inflict harm and destroy humanity is that concerns a fellow brother like me.
I does not matter to me if he learned a few new words, spoke with his heart and blurred out some common sense yesterday. Since the lack of respect for intelligence and the lack of understanding of the reactions to his own actions are massive. The reason for the concern is the way he can easily pick something out of context and spread it like a disease.
President Trump, your Executive Orders and Presidential Memorandum is the ones that brings fear to me. The insulting ways of not caring what the experts in fields are saying and your lack of grasping the mentality of being the man-in-charge. The title is easy to carry, but to achieve something with honour and grace seems far-fetched at this point. Therefore, we are at crossroads, the crossing has already appeared and your methods are in use.
I cannot look out say since you said something beautiful yesterday and hopeful. Believe that tomorrow you will act like a man, who respect the constitution, international order and be civil. Since your ways is not like that and seems strange if that really would happen. You have an imagination and self-drive that is out of proportion. The sense of justification for your assaults on others is because you are always the victim, even when you strike first. Which is insulting to the rest of us seeing the whole ordeal and hearing it by all cable-TV.
So that you believe in yourself that you can as a PR stunt in a first Presidential Address take away the inflicted pain and suffrage you have already caused, that is not possible. There is a long way, but your immigration rules, the way you have been fixing the ICE agents procedures and attack on anyone questioning your reasons. Does not rule high in my book of proverbs. More likely shows the lack of morals and the lack of integrity a man of Presidential stature is supposed to have.
President Trump and his administration do not care about the effects as long as the rich multi-national companies earns fortunes, if you spill oil in rivers, frack the Midwest like a Swiss Cheese or even put trade-embargoes on Mexico and Canada, who cares as long as Goldman Sachs or any other big financial organizations earns huge profits. The pain of the ordinary person is not important. Therefore if 20 million Americans lose their health insurance is not that important, but what is important is that they pay for their coverage and get rid of the ones that should not have the ability to covered anyway. That is a true American spirit and wishful society, where the wealthy get yachts and hotels, while the poor has decide if they can by McDonalds burger or medication for their daughter. What a wonderful picture of the new America First.
Certainly, Trump must be so brave to take away the help to the poorest, the ones in need so he can spend fortunes upon fortunes on ammunition, guns and hi-tech military equipment, that is how nations is built. Out of the ashes of war and despair comes the grand fortunes of corruption and multi-million progress salvage pack bought and greased by American business. A favourable package for Trump and financial market friends.
Therefore, the words and speech of hope or whatnot yesterday does not matter to me. Because I cannot believe it or think that, it is true. Since his Executive Orders is to free-market policies or to give way to deport, detain or stop immigration at a scale in modern history that cause havoc. Together with the current political climate and the scales of internal conflict, it does not serve the United States, neither the world.
You can in theory claim that a potato is not a potato, still when you look at it and touch it. You know deep in your heart it is a potato and your mind remembers how a potato feels in your hand. Even if Trump now speaks of peace, promise of better day and of another to make America First. Trust me; I do not trust him, not a single bit. That is because of his acts and the way he does not give in. That is why he has in the past always taken things to court and appealed until the others have given in to a settlement instead of what they was entitle to get in the first place. Trump have manoeuvred that way in the past. So why should the old man change now?
I will not be shocked if read soon more disturbing Executive Orders where the Immigrants and their access to American soil is a danger to all of society, a cost and burden on all sort of employment. Therefore, I do not trust the man. Since his time as President the efforts to humans who flee wars for safe haven has been shut, the deportation with ICE agent has escalated and the reality of the economic is already starting to be shaped. A nice little speech is not changing my perspective on the man. Unless, the man retracts the Executive Orders, stops the internal memos and just stop with rhetoric of his. However, the old man will not do that, since it is not his way.
So please, do not tell me there is new Trump. Glean and Clean Trump does not exist and is not real. It fake like his tan. If there were a new Trump, it would have the changed and begged sorry to some of the people he really has offended. That is not him. We all know that my now and we know that he will not do anything about that. Unless, Bannon or one of the other wise guys at the White House says so.
Well, enough of the nonsense? Not yet! We have so many more days of this administration. Therefore, there will be more of this and this gravy train of ignorance and blatant disregard of decency will not decay, more it will sprite up some more juice and call it soup. Peace.
The Presidency under Donald Trump will surely hire lots of security and law enforcement people, as there is already in the works a deportation force to get rid of illegal aliens and people who seeks refugee with valid visa. Therefore today’s new investment and security order that clearly indicates that that the Trump Administration wants to take a step further, also another order that is clear on the public safety. However, this will surely be more oppression against people, as proven with the voting in of new Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Who has had no quarrel fighting civil rights activists in the past, because of his believed superiority, instead now he will attack the minorities and make sure the strengthen law enforcement can silence the dissidents of the white supremacist system that the new Republic government tries to unfold with all sort of measures like these.
First on the new Task Force:
“A focus on law and order and the safety and security of the American people requires a commitment to enforcing the law and developing policies that comprehensively address illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and violent crime. The Department of Justice shall take the lead on Federal actions to support law enforcement efforts nationwide and to collaborate with State, tribal, and local jurisdictions to restore public safety to all of our communities” (White House, 2017).
We can see that the Task force will be clear cut to nationwide take federal actions for the common good. Though there will indication in the order what that entails like in Section two:
“The Attorney General shall determine the characteristics of the Task Force, which shall be composed of individuals appointed or designated by him.
(c) The Task Force shall:
(i) exchange information and ideas among its members that will be useful in developing strategies to reduce crime, including, in particular, illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and violent crime;
(ii) based on that exchange of information and ideas, develop strategies to reduce crime;
(iii) identify deficiencies in existing laws that have made them less effective in reducing crime and propose new legislation that could be enacted to improve public safety and reduce crime;
(iv) evaluate the availability and adequacy of crime-related data and identify measures that could improve data collection in a manner that will aid in the understanding of crime trends and in the reduction of crime; and
(v) conduct any other studies and develop any other recommendations as directed by the Attorney General” (White House, 2017).
So Attorney General Jeff Sessions will put together his hateful eight, take the bull by the horns and create havoc in the inner-cities. That is the measurement of what this Task Force will do. They come with all sorts mixes that fits the frame of Sessions and their idea of justice. This can be messy in the near future.
The Second Executive Order is a continuation of this one. With the key principals of law and order, where the state get more organized and police oriented. As we can see in the first section:
“(a) enforce all Federal laws in order to enhance the protection and safety of Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers, and thereby all Americans;
(b) develop strategies, in a process led by the Department of Justice (Department) and within the boundaries of the Constitution and existing Federal laws, to further enhance the protection and safety of Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers; and
(c) pursue appropriate legislation, consistent with the Constitution’s regime of limited and enumerated Federal powers, that will define new Federal crimes, and increase penalties for existing Federal crimes, in order to prevent violence against Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers” (White House, 2017).
So when Jeff Sessions and President Trump have created a stronger law enforcement with their own team, they need strategies and legislation that the Task Force can actually do. That is the reason for Executive Order number two of the day. So that one is the hand to acts and the other the glove that gives the warrant to address it!
“(a) develop a strategy for the Department’s use of existing Federal laws to prosecute individuals who commit or attempt to commit crimes of violence against Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers;
(b) coordinate with State, tribal, and local governments, and with law enforcement agencies at all levels, including other Federal agencies, in prosecuting crimes of violence against Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers in order to advance adequate multi-jurisdiction prosecution efforts;
(c) review existing Federal laws to determine whether those laws are adequate to address the protection and safety of Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers;
(d) following that review, and in coordination with other Federal agencies, as appropriate, make recommendations to the President for legislation to address the protection and safety of Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers, including, if warranted, legislation defining new crimes of violence and establishing new mandatory minimum sentences for existing crimes of violence against Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers, as well as for related crimes” (White House, 2017).
So the Law Enforcement Task Force and the already law enforcement, as the President Trump and Attorney General Sessions can go on with their wild-card as they want to make sure the boys in blue is safe. The Police Officers going to get allowed and secure for their faults and their checking of society, because this administration believes in a strong state!
With this sort of laws and strengthening of the Police in the state, under a government that wants only their views and their regulations; will really focus on the Police rather than the citizens… these laws will be strengthen for their justice and their acts to implement the ideas of the state. This are proof of what extend the national security and how far the Presidency want to take it.
This isn’t just to secure the Law Enforcement, but also to review and make sure the loopholes of law are amended, even repealed so the Police and other Federal Security Agents can act as they please. This will happen with the Law Enforcement to be done without fear of retaliation or repercussion for doing their work.
Certainly President Trump and Attorney General Sessions are going to have a field day with this and use all measures to enforce this, both section it out and also make sure their boys in blue is safe with all means possible and together with all new Executive Orders. The EOs with this and anti-immigration are to strengthen the law enforcement is an extension of it. As if President Trump wants to achieve the other, he needs reasons to sufficiently make the Law Enforcement stronger and more legally equipped. So he can also show his rash hand with being saving grace for the police as they have to enforce his visions of justice. This is to be continued, just as his viable attempt of justifying the means of oppression towards foreign citizens with legal green cards and attempt of self-righteousness; in the midst of finding new ways of sufficiently policing the state through his measures. Peace.
White House – ‘TASK FORCE ON CRIME REDUCTION AND PUBLIC SAFETY’ (09.02.2017)
White House – ‘PREVENTING VIOLENCE AGAINST FEDERAL, STATE, TRIBAL, AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS’ (09.02.2017)
“A group of more than 1,100 law school professors from across the country are sending a letter to Congress Tuesday to urge the Senate to reject the nomination of Alabama Republican Senator Jeff Sessions for attorney general. This is the letter they sent”
If you ever thought the Cabinet and the picked men and might be woman under the Presidency of Trump would be without controversy, you’re wrong after he picked his Campaign Manager Stephen Bannon for Chief Strategist in the White House. There are bunch of other complicated and important roles to fill for the new Administration under Trump.
That a Senator from Alabama gets into a Cabinet isn’t new or controversial, but the long-serving Senator Jeff Sessions has a shady history and also some principals that are concerning. Especially considering that the Attorney General of the United States is this:
“The Attorney General represents the United States in legal matters generally and gives advice and opinions to the President and to the heads of the executive departments of the Government when so requested. In matters of exceptional gravity or importance the Attorney General appears in person before the Supreme Court. Since the 1870 Act that established the Department of Justice as an executive department of the government of the United States, the Attorney General has guided the world’s largest law office and the central agency for enforcement of federal laws” (Justice.gov – Office of the Attorney General – About the Office).
So in legal matters the appointment of Jeff Sessions will be representing the US Government and also directly advice the President, which is Trump. He is a real partner in crime, one racist to another, the company of men at the White House and tightknit elite in Washington will now have the same perspectives on Border Control, Immigration, and Abortion for instance; which are civil liberties they don’t seem to see much value in.
The man Attorney General Jeff Sessions from Alabama has this history and beliefs. Take a look!
Last Election for his Senate seat in 2014:
“Sessions’ unopposed status this year helps seal Alabama’s reputation as a “red” Republican state. It’s a 180-degree turn from Alabama’s status as unfriendly territory for the GOP. Winger cites 1950, 1956 and 1974 as times when Democrats won election to the U.S. Senate without major opposition, or with no opponent at all. Until 2014, however, Republicans were never given the same pass” (Stinson, 2014).
Special Testimonies about him:
“Wildman writes in particular that the testimonies of two witnesses–a Justice Department employee named J. Gerald Hebert, and a black Sessions subordinate named Thomas Figures–helped to doom Sessions, then a U.S. Attorney, at his Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings. According to Wildman, Hebert testified reluctantly “that in a conversation between the two men Sessions had labeled the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) “un-American” and “Communist-inspired.” And Figures–then an assistant U.S. Attorney–told the committee that “during a 1981 murder investigation involving the Ku Klux Klan, Sessions was heard by several colleagues commenting that he ‘used to think they [the Klan] were OK’ until he found out some of them were ‘pot smokers.'” (TPM DC, 2009).
“SARAH WILDMAN: Thanks for having me, Amy.
Well, as you described, Sessions was a US attorney in 1986 when Reagan appointed him to the US District Court of Alabama. He, at the time, had been at the helm of a voting scandal in Alabama, where he had charged three civil rights leaders with voting fraud, that is, falsifying absentee ballots, you know, faking various voters. And after investigation, they were all acquitted. It was called the Marion Three. One of them, Albert Turner, had been an aide to Martin Luther King, Jr. And that was sort of the tip of the iceberg about Jeff Sessions” (Wildman & Rivera, 2009).
“Sessions has always been willing to take on unpopular fights. As U.S. attorney, he prosecuted a group of African-American civil-rights activists for voter fraud, and his nomination prompted charges of racism from local and national officials. Colleagues at the Department of Justice accused him of racism, too, and the late Democratic senator Ted Kennedy warned that he would be a “throwback to a shameful era.” A black colleague and even a local black journalist testified on his behalf. Ultimately, his nomination was defeated. In an unusual turn of events, Senator Howell Heflin, a conservative Democrat who was expected to support his fellow Alabamian, bucked tradition and cast the deciding vote against him” (Johnson, 2014).
Standing for existing Gun-laws:
“As you mentioned in your letter, Congress and federal officials often respond to tragic events by imposing new laws and regulations that restricts gun ownership. I do not believe the solution here is to create new laws. Instead, we should focus on enforcing existing laws, and turn our attention to criminals who obtain or use guns illegally. For Example, under current law, there is mandatory minimum sentence of ten years for discharging a firearm in relation to any crime of violence and a maximum penalty of death for criminals convicted for first-degree murder” (Sessions, 2012).
““A new study confirms that the labor-force participation rate is at a thirty-year low – meaning that small improvements in the employment rate have masked the deeper trend of a shrinking labor force with more people retiring early, going on disability, turning to welfare, and giving up looking for work altogether,” Sessions said in a statement today” (…) ““In 1999, half of teenagers had a summer job; today, it’s a mere third,” Sessions said. “Wages are also lower today than they were in 1999. Meanwhile, 1 in 3 without a high school diploma remains unable to find a job. This is more than temporary problem but an alarming trend: the workforce is shrinking and the welfare rolls are expanding.” (…) “Chronic unemployment causes enormous social harm – to schools, to families, to communities. Do we really want a society with a large, growing block of Americans who are permanently out of work?” Sessions said. “A swift amnesty and a permanent surge in low-skill immigration may make sense for some business interests – but it makes no sense for a nation that is currently struggling with exploding welfare rolls, falling wages and chronic unemployment.” (Talbot, 2013).
“Under a story headlined “Catch and Release,” CIS said the Obama Administration’s policies of prosecutorial discretion were leading to a decline in immigration enforcement” (…) “American citizens have a legal and moral right to the protections our immigration laws afford—at the border, the interior and the workplace,” Sessions said. “The Administration has stripped these protections and adopted a government policy that encourages new arrivals to enter illegally or overstay visas by advertising immunity from future enforcement.” Cason, 2014)
“Shockingly, of the 400,000 caught, 80 percent are released into the United States,” said Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions. “We cannot allow the Mexican border to turn into lawless area where drugs and crime predominate,” he said”(Herera & Reyes, 2016).
“BLOCK: “Before the meeting today, we heard the president say he doesn’t have a litmus test around the issue of abortion. He did say he believes that constitutional values, though, include the protection of privacy and what he called bodily integrity. Could you, do you think, support a nominee who also embraces that belief?” (NPR, 2010).
“ Sen. SESSIONS: It’s the question, you know, fundamentally of a person’s constitutional analysis. You know, people can disagree. And I think it would result in simply how they analyze the cases and not just that case, but the many, many, many other issues that come before the court. So we would like to see I would like to see a nominee who is committed to faithfully following the Constitution as it is written. And that understands that they’re not empowered to consult polling data or social conditions as they interpret the existing words of our Constitution” (NPR, 2010)
I don’t want to discuss this, I just want to show this, because this should matter, but it doesn’t do for Trump, because the moral flexible man is just for his own ego. Picks the men he knows will be loyal to him and not the Government itself. These men will follow him and feel alike in manner of belief of other people and policy, even if he has so. Other than his bloated ego and wanting to have men who he can control; therefore he picks a giant fan and long-term senator.
This Attorney General is worrying because of his casual belief in changing laws and how he wants to make the immigration laws stronger and fight the immigrants. This cannot be seen as healthy stance. Welcome back the Shameful Era is now here. It’s with Bannon and Sessions, and who else that the Trump Administration picks. To now the only spineless, but decent pick of men has Reince Priebus to have White House position.
Enough of this racist nonsense, but there will be more as the Trump Transition Team is handpicking the men who are the most appealing to Breitbart and other fringe spheres of the American Experience. Peace.
