Opinion: The Trump Campaign miss the WikiLeaks

It is getting closer to November and the final days of the campaign. We are in the middle of October 2020 and the race is stagnating. The President and his party is sort of scrambling. They are trying to dignify things, but it’s not working. Only the hard-liners, the love-birds of the President is still on the train. The moderates, the libertarians and other conservatives have already endorsed Joe Biden the opponent.

Donald J. Trump and his campaign last time had not only the help of right-wing media. It had help of former fridge media houses, such as Breitbart and others. Who all went up and became well-known. These Alt-Right web-pages stirred the controversy and also racism, which have been proven with the policies made in the term of this Presidency.

Therefore, Trump had influential backers with him. This was also the help of Cambridge Analytica and WikiLeaks. These dropped information and social media campaigns, which targeted the public. To narrow the space of the other candidates and change the narratives of them. This by getting bots to run Facebook groups and so fourth. The Trump Campaign had big game on these platforms and was able to manufacture consent for it. Because, the new-cycles was controlled by these ways of spreading information.

That is the sort of way it hasn’t worked as well this time around. Because, if it was to work like last time. There would have been plenty of headlines, questioning the health of Biden and his history. Where they would question his foundation, his businesses and his family. Alas, that isn’t the case. It is only small pieces of it, but not to the extent of last time.

Trump and his Campaign Team had the backers of WikiLeaks. They dropped vital emails, documents and internal documents of the Democratic Party. Others like Cozy Bear and Guccifer 2.0. These dropped intel and weaponized documents to hit the Democratic Party directly. These things made it harder for the Clinton Campaign. As they had to defend that and also wiggle with the direct attacks.

This is the Trump Campaign lacking in 2020. They don’t have foreign backers who are leaking information. All of this was giving a helping hand. To ensure the image and the idea of Trump presidency. He didn’t get the leaks, the hacking and questionable intelligence released to that extent. Yes, there was one dossier made by a former agent. However, that only did a little damage, compared to the ones dropped steadily on WikiLeaks. That was hurting Clinton non-stop.

That is why the Trump Campaign is struggling. Not only because of the incompetence and lack of strategy, but also because they have no real dirt on Biden. The Trump Campaign cannot assault and doesn’t have the support of foreign hackers. Who are willing to use all sort of techniques to get information and drop it. This is why the Trump Campaign haven’t the steam as it did in 2016.

Trump Campaign needs a WikiLeaks, it cannot run on slogans and on the charisma of the President. Especially, when he cannot listen to advice and do the right thing. He rather spill conspiracies and misuse of force. Instead, of actually do proper politicking.

The Trump Campaign cannot even sell a simple idea. They need someone drop dirt on the opponents. Because, they have so little to trade. It is that simplistic. The US President needs a Assange to save his ass. However, I don’t think there is time or someone willing to do so.

We know that Trump easily works with fo

reigners to get ahead. He would do that again. For one simple reason: He needs it! Peace.

Opinion: The US election needs EOMs [ASAP]

The United States of America seems like it needs Election Observation Missions to give an oversight and look into the election process. Especially, since the US administration and the Trump Administration isn’t in the space of wanting free and fair elections. The democratic values is dying. The ability to use foreign actors and rig elections is getting more rampant.

The way the money are commercialized the elections and the PACs who are used to promote candidates. The way industries and donors are swaying parties not only one policies, but also how they gearing into certain type of candidates. This is already disfranchising big parts of the electorate. Just by knowing this, there should be asking questions of how “free” the elections are, when the candidates and parties needs to millions of dollars to be able to field candidates in the first place.

The other worry is how states are disfranchising voters from voting. Blocking people from the polls. Making it harder for people to vote. Putting in place laws that blocks certain parts of the demographics and also gerrymandering too. This is all done deliberately to ensure one party get automatic seats. That is all done in ways to ensure one party get their ticket through in that state.

In the United States with the Republican Party and the Trump Administration. There is now proof, that he wants to be a big man. He is sowing doubt about mail-in-ballots or Absentee-Voting. Something the President and his allies has done several of times. This will issue that voting will take longer time, but it will still be valid ballots. However, with this the results will be monitored in another way then before. The polls and the declared results will be later. Nevertheless, it is only a different change of method, but not changing the fact.

The US has also a President that has repeatedly wanted to rule forever and stating that he will not make a peaceful transition if he looses. That is a warning sign of weak “big-man” who doesn’t respect democratic values. However, there have never been any signals of that from the Head of State. He wants to rule on decree and be accountable.

When we know all this, the African Union (AU), Organization of American States (OAS), Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Commonwealth and the European Union should all send Election Observer Missions to the United States Presidential Elections before November 2020 polls.

Something got to happen. To ensure the ballots are verified. Before the voter registered are bugged, all technical staff and such. There need to be an Memorandum of Understanding between the US and alternatives EOMs. They need to travel across the Republic and check it out. The US needs several EOMs to ensure they are doing things correctly. Because, they need outsiders monitoring and reporting on what’s happening.

The US have pushed this on others. They have sent the Carter Center and others to overlook others when they are going to the polls. However, with the history of questionable results and vote rigging for instance in Florida like in 2000. There is a need for EOMs to overlook everything and could be a driving force to secure the elections. So, they can either verify or write condemnations of how they are doing things wrongly.

They can also see the malfunctions, the possible rigging and the possible disfranchising of citizens from the polls. The EOMs can prove this and report it. They will follow the Constitution and the Election statutes. They will sign-off to International Standards and will state what they are seeing. They will not be partisan and be for one party.

The chaos and the way the President is putting things in a tail-spin. The way his allies, cronies and appointed leaders are making things worse. The way his party is not supporting the core values of the Republic.

It shows the needs for a EOMs to the U.S. they are in dire need for it. We the world need to secure this election. Unless, we’re cool with Russian interference and others swaying the elections in their favours. So, if we don’t care. Then they can swim alone in their own big sea. However, it looks like they need some oversight and transparency from outsiders.

I never expect it to happen, but it would be a healthy vibe. The US seems on a path of self-destruction and need the world to give them notes on how to do it. Since, they have forgotten how they do it and need observers and experts from the outside. To ensure they are doing the right thing and are holding credible elections. This, because the President and his allies are creating doubt… also they are doing what they can to hack and seemingly “rig” in their favour. When you do this all to distrust a process and election. Then its really a need for someone to spell it out and report on it.

Who better, then to get the AU, OAS and ASEAN to the bid? They can all have some former Presidents as the leaders of the teams with bunch of former MPs and such. These will all be based across the Republic. One team in the West, one in the East and another in the Mid-West. Also, even Commonwealth based in the South. Just so all of them have their bases and can do their thing. That seems like something the world can do.

We know it will never happen… but it would be a healthy and ensure credibility. The US needs it these days and that says a lot about the fall of the Republic. Peace.
