Opinion: A failed rebellion from the Labour MPs as the Members votes to keep Jeremy Corbyn!

labour-ballot-2016

The United Kingdom politics seems to have changed a lot since the Brexit Election. Theresa May thinks she the second coming to the Queen and tries to the Iron Lady while triumphant acts like a winner; even if she just inherited the honourable Prime Minister government and traded seats to loyalist for her. Well, other news has been the disgraceful and despicable attacks on Jeremy Corbyn and his allies in the Labour Party. The Main Opposition party that has been under fire for their activity and nativity under the Brexit campaign; that has backfired on the central leadership and ended is disarray in the socialist party.

There we’re very few MPs in Public who we’re behind Jeremy Corbyn like Kate Osamor and few other rare Members of Parliament that we’re silent through the storm after the Brexit.

This happens as the knowledge of the rebel MPs who fled the ship and wanted to axe their leader without any concern of how recently he was elected. These we’re the likes of Peter Kyle, Emma Lewell-Buck, Peter Glass, Chris Evans, Heidi Alexander, Steve Reed, Lucy Powell, Ruth Smeeth, David Wayne, Chris Bryant, Ian Murray, Jess Phillips, Andy Slaughter, Lillian Greenwood and Angela Eagle. All of these MPs wrote letters resigning from the Shadow Cabinet and later worked to do what they could to marginalize their leader. They even had a vote in Parliament where they Opposition voted no-confidence in Corbyn.

In a big party as Labour there would be natural that their more than one major wing. In the Labour Party of United Kingdom, you have the Blairites, the once that you cannot spot the difference between if they are Liberal-Democrats (Lib-Dem) or Conservative Party (Tories) as they acts are the same, but hints of collective consideration when they need too. Than you have the Right-Wing socialist and Labour Unionist that is core bases of the Party. These two wings are the ones that have fought for control of the party. The Legacy of Tony Blair and his New Labour is hunting the Party like a vindictive disease that it cannot kill off. Instead the internal squabbles strengthen the Theresa May government and her brash tone towards the world. While the looking non-member possible voter feels that Labour Party is not the first choice because they cannot control themselves.

There been enough scandals and wrong methods from the leadership under Corbyn. But he has been a backbencher and not a key player until late. The once behind him and the core leadership should have backed him and given him better advice and made sure that certain Anti-Semite slurs wouldn’t be associated with the party and some of the MPs who are loyal to Corbyn. As much as Corbyn should have used a stronger force in the Brexit campaign to gain momentum for what he believed in at that junction. But let’s be clear, the coup d’état that the Shadow Cabinet Ministers are not how to run a party; it is how to ruin a party. Some of these should just flee the Labour Party; ask for forgiveness in their role of disfranchising the Unions and Members of the Party. Or be noble and find a new home. The rebel MPs should beg for forgiveness for weakening the party and their causes. This has wasted time and efforts for the cost of Labour.

labour-right-in-racist-attack

The Corbyn Administration better use the time wisely and enter a method of sending their message and making sure programs offered the public can be sold and understood in Brighton and in Swindon.

Certainly the rebel MPs are the key losers today, but also the party because of the internal destruction and maladministration that has led to this effort. The Labour Party can become vital if their principals are in order and if the leadership are true to their balanced message. In a big party as Labour if there weren’t fractions, we as followers of them should be worried. Than there would an authoritarian leader who demands what the rest of the party should think and have on their mind.

If the Corbyn Administration doesn’t handle the rebels, then the friction between them will continue until next election. Even if the Theresa May Cabinet postpones the Article 50 into oblivion as she really wants to and just having a Brexit Minister and having boy-scout Boris Johnson proud-cocking around Europe to ask for forgiveness for his previous insults of the past. Even with all this in mind Corby and his loyal leadership around him has to consolidate and get a clear message, while handling the men and woman who did what they could to oust him. They tried to have both MP Angela Eagle and MP Owen Smith instead of him. The reaction of the matter is now clear as the Members wish to have Jeremy Corbyn longer staying with the helmet.

Certain tabloids and media houses should ask mercy to Corbyn for their attitude and stinking press of slur of ignorance and fixation on getting him axed. Like they wanted to destabilize the party in the wish to strengthen May Government! It isn’t just me who see that clear vindictive attitude of British press towards Corbyn? It was factory made press of banality and obstructive behaviour that we’re out of this world. The only one getting as much bad press, but deservingly so is Donald Trump and he speaks venom; that is not the ways of Corbyn.

observer-khan-corbyn

Let’s be clear, if the Labour Party wants to be serious contender and become a Party of the People again. Then they have to consolidate and retaliate with fierce precision against the rebels while giving them limited options. MP Owen Smith can now go back to his constituency and try to win over with this lobbyist smile and “make this election the most important in the party history”.

If Labour want to reign again, then they have to go internally and fix, amend and show progress of stature and credible socialist message that can bring belief of a better future for workers, households and industry. Not only trading the Blairites for getting voters now. Corbyn, congratulation on your second victory in Inner-Party Election; now it is time to work! Peace.  

Opinion: Trump can promise roses, but that will still not be the truth!

Trump broken flag

There are these days when I wonder when people will see what I see, as I see a fraudster, a liar and charlatan who has used his name to trade on misfortune of American citizens, both in Businesses and now in Politics. Now he promises jobs and tighter borders, giant walls and more xenophobia and fear of the ones migrating to the American Nation. That is the state of affairs that Trump promises; while also glorifying himself as a Demi-God.

That is why he hates to be questioned and even mentioned in a sinister way, even if it is true. As he congratulates himself and believe that killing families creating genocide is the way of making sure the Syrian civil war will be settled. This from the man who imports all kind of crap in his own name, while saying that American business is screwed by the Chinese and Mexicans; as he himself is earning money on branded goods from the same destinations.

So the man who now chosen another controversial VP Mike Pence, the current Governor of Indiana, who has become famous for establishing very harsh regulation on births and rights for abortion in his state, while also in his one-time governorship he even created more controversy with regulating stronger LGBT rights and their freedoms in public spaces as toilets and such, which have already been under-fire in other states. So the man that carries the water and makes sure the hair is straight of Trump has some dark horses in his home-run. The ironic part is that GOP or Republican Party can finally have candidate in Indiana that might beat the Democratic Party nominee in coming election. That should been a consideration while vetting the man behind Trump, but he picks from his guts; not his wits!

Trump John Barron

Trump promise the most beautiful and wonderful piece of everything, depending on the crowd and the state, higher lowest-minimum wage or polices for trade. They are shallow words and proving the insecure man that he is. The vain and simplistic, as he still in July 2016, ever since running for over a year, still hasn’t released his Tax-Returns; because he doesn’t have the character to drop his true value or his pocket-change as the reveling truth would show that he is not as rich as he claims or narrowly near the billions that supposed be there. If that we’re so he wouldn’t need to beg Koch brothers or go on ferrying for donor funding instead of campaigning in swing-states!

The whole ordeal, the whole empty pledges the smearing and rubbish throwing against both opponents in own party and everybody else in general; while praising dictators like Gaddafi, Kim Yung-Un and Vladimir Putin; claiming that America Nation and Economics is in shambles, blaming media for being biased while speaking like Fox News anchor on steroids. He could be dancing over the Media’s, that have been banned from following the campaign trail; which means a dozen media-houses for writing what he would call spiteful articles or portrait on screen.

So for me as European it is weird that he is even considered, with his track-record and scams are getting away from becoming a Nominee in General Party towards a General Election, while he has the balls to pick a VP that is Midwestern prototype of himself, just more clean and speaks the ordinary coded political language, instead of the bashing guts without any common knowledge the Donald!

Trump Team

But this is just my two-cents and I have described the man before, as Paul Manafort who got Corey Lewandowski fired and traded space to speak astonishingly about the efforts of Trump. Manafort is the key player in the Campaign Team behind Trump, he must know it’s a fools race right now and therefore taking his bet behind a narcissist who has no quarrels except for his own gains. So the real political place of the man is like balancing a donut over a tornado. The one day he might be Pro Trade-Zones and the next day lenient taxes instead to gain business.

So the pledges and promises are as shallow of the character of Trump, the fake and weak-tea that he offers shouldn’t be taken for the gold-covered label he uses on his company and walls of his Twinkie-Tower in the Rotten Apple. We can surely know that the America that we heard about as kids is gone, like wave it will come and go apparently. The land of liberty and equality must been torn to pieces to accept the candidature of a man of this stature. The land of tolerance and melting-pot must be drowned in redneck bashing KKK nonsense, instead of the Boondocks cartoons and Dave Chappell skits. This must be the reality as ‘Friends’ and ‘Seinfeld’ has stopped making more sitcom episodes, instead some other random crap made by Netflix and HBO.

So the world cannot be same… as the world is seeing the ability and possibility for a candidate like Trump, for a man with the world-view and rhetoric being capable of thrashing both seasoned and ambitions politicians with loyalties inside the Grand Old Party (GOP). Certainly the roses he promises are more old sour croutons instead. Peace.   

Opinion: Why I don’t like Donald Trump or “Domhnall Iain” as I explain why I hope the Americans elect somebody else.

donald-trump-make-america-great

I know many people would be more diplomatic, I will not because of his attitude and unpolished behaviour of little spoiled brat instead of serious politician. The Donald is a mess of man, the tanned gleeful asshole who has no heart or soul to speak off. He attacks anybody and only close to people when they are useful and if they start to dwindle he leave you be. Loyalty is only important as long as he can earn on it.

Trumps family that have roots on the island of Lewis on the coast of Scotland, where many have nicknamed him “Domhnall Iain”, which isn’t given to honour the man, instead to mark disgust with him. He can swallow spit and attack as much has he wants, we in Europe, except for the Ultra-Nationalist and the Right-Wing xenophobic politicians and supporters enjoy watching the madness called Trump.

That is because a man like Trump is living on fear, which the economic prosperity of United States is in tatters, even if the figures are saying otherwise. Since the downturned is stabilized, even if isn’t resurrection of old-industry like automobile in Detroit or Flint in Michigan state. There is more stable and the percentage is more stable since the house-bubble, but saying that is like fairy-tale for the Republicans. Well, Trump knows all about being saved in the midst of debt, that why he prides himself being a “King of Debt”, that because of the failures of Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts Inc , Trump Shuttle, GoTrump.com, Trump University, Trump Vodka, Trump Magazine, Trump World Magazine, Trump Steaks, The Trump Network and Trump Mortgage Company LLC. All of these well planned companies was run to the ground; reason why the name is more important than the product, since he earns more on license his name than delivering anything worth a buck.

Trump Univision Letter

When you comes with lies upon lies, when you claim to be such a splendid businessman, but have such amount of failed businesses. You have then the opportunity to question his savvy on it, even if the Trump Organization have a dozen businesses under it and have buildings to its name. That does not save his face, his face that lies more then it speaks the truth.

What I dislike is not how he flip-flops, even if he worse than well-seasoned politicians, flip-flopping is natural in politics. It’s the lies and claims the believing in conspiracy and acting like he can do wrong, but somebody does the same he blast them. He was attacking John McCain for being taken hostage in war, while he we’re partying the hell of out of his money. He speaks of balls, but never had the balls himself to go into the army or to war to serve his country. Still, he has the arrogance and diligence to address them like wankers! He should be more subtle, but that isn’t in his character, because he isn’t wise enough or has enough tact.

Trump John Barron

He can deceive and sell the soul of the Republican Party that has wished for his candidacy for so long that they didn’t even know it. The racist, xenophobia and the hatred for everything that does not fit the Christian Conservative values that are key parts of the RNC; they wanted a man who wasn’t cold blooded politician, who was gun-loving and free-speaking son of bitch. Though wished that he wasn’t married three times and coming with New York values. And also have the history buying the Democratic votes to fix his buildings.

Trump is a man who I despise, because of what he really stand for and how he is defended. When people says he isn’t really racist… I am just looking and wondering, why didn’t he ask to get longer away from the former KKK Grand-Wizard and why is he so connected to White Supremacist? Why does his rally throw out people of colour and not allowing them in? Why does he blame inner-city youth and talks of America Great Again! But never says when America was great? Or how he really thinks it is going to be great, yet again.

Trump-U-Blog-Post-Image2

Trump is a rich man who has allowed to be bloated, nobody ask him real questions and never touched in an interview, as they want the ratings of having his orange-skinned ass in the studio or on the phone. He acts so chauvinist and male dominated as he attacks Hillary, while he claims she does the same things. Actually his campaigns becomes more and more like her with Super-PACs, RNC funding and billion stimulus package, that will also cover the borrowed money for the Trump primary elections in the GOP. So he is now pocketed like all the rest he supposed to be different from… the long list of nonsense is staggering.

It’s not like I can discuss his policies since he can negotiate his tax reform, his migration reform though not allowing Muslims, Mexicans and other emigrants… if they had done that about 50 years or 70 years ago, United States of America might never see Trump; Can Marty McFly go back in time and fix that?  While he has policies to open Fracking, Coal Production and Oil drilling even in fragile areas. He is for it as long as there is possible money to be made by doing so. He will deal with everybody, if not he will kill their kids and families, as then he will silence terrorist and control better than the current leaders. Because that is healthy foreign policy, while pushing on bills on NATO and also questioning other partners or allies of US. That means that Iceland can expect that the Americans leave their nation and also that AFCON in Germany will be slimmed down, as the American First is putting a Bomber on JFK and bombing the crap out of Syria and Iraq. Second because Putin the friend of Trump will need his planes and his goodwill in the near future.

Fox News

The rest of his values can be negotiated or decided by the states as long as doesn’t need to write Executive-Orders from the White House. That is because he plans to play golf like George W. Bush, somebody he looked up too, until his favourable ratings went down like many of his former businesses. He is only using people and the ones that will become loyal men the rest can scatter for the winds, because they are liars, crooks or even worse dishonest people. Well, who is this Trump character to judge other, aye?

At some point he used illegal Polish “Brigade” workers to build his Trump Tower, in the midst of workers strike; he used his ties to mob-bosses who by some strange coincidence supplied the dry-cement to build it also used mob-technic to silence the strike around the Tower; so the building could be built in time. So as long as Trump earns money on his ties with gangsters; he will use it, but if they are gangster from Mexico, who doesn’t serve him; then he want to send them packing over the border, Aghast, the irony right?

With all this in mind, with all the grand knowledge of how he operates, how can people still support and look up to this man. Trump at some point jumped on Mitt Romney for delivering his IRS Tax Returns late when he was the GOP Presidential Nominee. If I remember correctly it was in January 2012 Trump asked for Romney to deliver his Tax Returns and he did it late in the Election Cycle, therefore it got screened carefully, as they wanted to see what he didn’t wanted the world to see. Now that Donald Trump is himself the Nominee of the RNC, he still hasn’t delivered it and soon going to the Republican Convention. Like a gold-fish he forgets how he attacked other politicians and now does the same, just worse because he have tarnished others for the same actions. That implies that he have no moral accord.

Trump Christian Quote

Just as he have put honour on the name of the North Korean dictator Kim Jung-Un, just as he wants a close friendship with Putin and wants to kill families of terrorist. The way he back in the day worked with gangsters to build his Ivory tower named Trump Tower in New York. He is still accepted by the Republic Party and the honourable men, of Christian Conservative of America. That is worrying how little they care for honesty and legacy of those who are supposed to be conservative and Christians in the United States, that they will be behind a man that are strikingly not living up to their values; instead using it like a Con-Man to get their support. Another reason why I despise him, since the only sincere value he has in his body is that he loves his own name and his own voice on any TV-Network at any given time.

He is like a Political Kardashian, he is famous for being famous, he used once back in the day to actually build something. Back in the day  he run lots of businesses to ground, he still have lots of business and property, many bought in the estate collapse of the 1970s through the networks of his father, bribed politicians and famous Italian gangsters in New York. This is the man the Republican National Committee, the Grand Old Party (GOP) which actually fits the hand in the glove. The Glove is Trump that covers the whole RNC/GOP while he is fisting the message of nothing to the American public. Because his words is just negotiations or maverick tricks of deception; he doesn’t care about values or honesty; he cares about his own position or serving the American Nation, the United States.

And that people put their trust in him is just blatant ignorance or factors of malfunctioning electoral procedure in the United States and their two major parties. Therefore men like him could all of sudden rise like weak phoenix from the ashes and act as saviour, while the real men see him as baboon with no honour. He might have some money, not as much money as he claims to have, if had that than he would have showed the through rough estimated value of his businesses. That he doesn’t have the character or bravery to even do, even he speaks like a macho-man, instead he ends up looking a weak-man who attacks everybody else, instead of saying what he really will do or how it will be under his leadership. Even his Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski is usually blaming the Obama-Government, the RNC-Organization or even Clinton, instead of saying how Trump really will act in power; because he doesn’t know himself.

What is ironic that he claims that Clinton isn’t qualified, she might not been perfect in her role as Minister under Obama, she still have been in the Senate and knows how Capitol Hill works. That is more than Trump ever will know, as he doesn’t know what kind of Departments that exists. So Trump shouldn’t speak of qualifications, she might be wrong with E-Mails as Secretary of State, well, was it was correct to hire and work with Mob-bosses Trump? Both cases are in the past, one recent, the other older, but the one doesn’t counter the other.

A Trump Straw-Company set-up to not pay tax to the IRS and state of Florida.
A Trump Straw-Company set-up to not pay tax to the IRS and state of Florida.

So with all this in mind, as this is a rant for a tired European, who wishes not to see this Reality Kardashian Politician to get into office, as that should be for somebody with character, with a little subtlety and also moral authority; all of which Trump is differing from, I am not for Clinton either… if you think so, you are wrong as her husband will always be remembered for me, as his executive order to bomb an Aspirin factory in Sudan in 1998. That is the beauty of remembering stuff. That’s why my leaf is for Bernie Sanders he is the only honest candidate and man who can carry his history, even the ones where he standing on the wrong side in Congress, that is because he have actual arguments that within reason can understand. Not that he have coined on his name or his state, instead been a honest politician. Something that is rare, like a wildflower in the midst of a bush.

Donald J. Trump, you are not presidential, never will be presidential, you cannot turn yourself presidential or act presidential. Because you don’t own humility or character to pull it off, you have to make water to wine and even build your own presidential head on the Mount Rushmore, and still you wouldn’t be it. You can call other phony, you can call other men and woman dishonest, but you shouldn’t; because you haven’t really been that truthful yourself, aye?

Peace.
