Opinion: US new sinister rule of detaining children indefinitely!

The Republican Party, the party that does whatever it can to abolish abortion, clearly have a mismanaged self-belief in the humanities. As they do not value the living, unless their donors or idiots who blindly follows the sinister party, the GOP. Who has no issues now with arresting, detaining and making it illegal to seek refuge, to seek shelter or even seek asylum in the United States of America.

The innocent children who are tagging along their parents seeking a better future. Are now first meet with concentration camps, where the same party doesn’t want to give the asylum seekers a bath, shower or the basic commodities. While they are incarcerated for their choice of crossing into the US.

Now, the US who has already for far too long, split the kids from their parents, awaiting verdict on their cases of possible visa/asylum. They are now opening not only to keep them in detention and detaining them. The new rule allow the kids, the infants and the toddlers to be kept indefinitely. Don’t tell me that these people care about people’s lives, about their future or even have simple compassion. When you have the heartless acts of allowing kids to be permanently in prison. That is Trump’s America.

“The core principle and requirement of the Flores Agreement is that migrant children taken into detention should be released as “expeditiously” as possible. The new rule provides instead for the indefinite detention of children with their parents in federal immigration facilities pending resolution of their immigration proceedings. In doing so, it seeks to reverse a ruling under the Flores settlement that children not be held for more than 20 days in facilities not licensed for childcare” (Open Access Government – ‘US announces indefinite immigration detention for children’ 22.08.2019).

No one can say that America has compassion or care for the weak, the poor and the ones in need. As the kids crossing the borders with their parents. It is evil enough to separate them in the first place. Now they are opening up to make them felons for life. That is who this administration is.

There is no heart, no soul or compassion from this administration. Just the acts of vile egocentric and alt-right bullshit. That is so far from the supposed ideals of the US. Which by now is far from forgotten, as they are now to busy, pumping up the ego of one man and his clan.

President Trump is showing that his the worst. The acts done by him and his associates proves how little they care. We known by words, but their actions are even worse. The act of detaining kids in the first place is foul. No one deserves to be detained without doing a crime, and crossing a border isn’t that. However, the US says so now. Trump Administration says so and acts so. This is the US of 2019. Surely, the founding fathers are shaking in their graves. Peace.

White House Sack-Race Continues: Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta resignation letter to President Trump (12.07.2019)

US Congress Report: Undress the sinister acts of the “Zero Tolerance” Policy of the Trump Administration!

Today, I will address the US Representatives Staff Report released this week. This is a report in regards to the sinister and evil act of separating kids from their parents at the border to Mexico. The report will clarify and say to what extent the acts been done and what consequences this have. They are splitting up families and scarring kids for life, because of the belief of a higher power or some sort of progression into the land of injustice, where the immigrants, refugees from Central and Latin America is criminal before justice has allowed them entry of the Republic.

That is why this report is important. I will take the quotes and the wordings that is showing the acts of the state to these ones, who only sin in life was to cross into the United States. After that, the Trump Administration have the power and will to do whatever in the name of the ‘Zero Tolerance’, to treat people in ways, that is violating human rights and basic understanding of humanity. This is what the Republican Party is showing world and will be remembered for. They did this and was proud of it, in Jesus name and as Christians they detained and let people die in custody. That is what sort of men, that is acting, running and doing the bidding of President Trump right now.

The Administration has identified 2,816 children covered by the court’s preliminary injunction, including more than 100 children under five and over 2,500 children between 5 to 17. The court ordered the reunification of children under five by July 11, 2018, and of children between 5 to 17 by July 26, 2018. However, following these deadlines, 711 children remained separated, including several hundred children whose parents had been deported before the court issued its preliminary injunction” (US Congress Staff Report, P: 13, 2019).

Despite the failure by DHS, HHS, and DOJ to produce a complete set of records, the Committee’s investigation of the Trump Administration’s child separations has revealed harm inflicted on children beyond what was previously known, has refuted the Administration’s justification for this cruel policy, and has confirmed the ongoing trauma inflicted by these separations. The separation of these children from their parents was not required by law, but instead was the result of a long-considered series of policy decisions by the Trump Administration. The Administration executed a deliberate policy to take thousands of babies, infants, toddlers, and children away from their parents and transfer them to government custody, in some cases in deplorable conditions” (US Congress Staff Report, P: 24, 2019).

Based on ICE data, 545 parents of the 2,648 separated children reviewed by the Committee were deported, with or without their children. From the limited set of ORR records, Committee staff have identified at least 158 parents who were deported without their children” (US Congress Staff Report, P: 29, 2019).

What is striking from this report is not only that the Trump Administration does this to innocent kids, that they are acting deliberately and also withholding information away from the US Congress. They are not only not delivering clear data-set or information about how they are acting, but trying to shield the world from acts. That is what the Trump Administration doing. The same administration, that blocked the United Nations Experts from investigation into the acts of the Concentration Camps and the detention centres created for refugees, aliens and migrants crossing into the United States.

That is why this report isn’t fulfilling to read, because you know, there are things that the DHS, HHS and the DOJ is not dropping to the public. Seemingly they are afraid of what the world will see. The Trump Administration, the leadership and the ones who made this happen should pay. Everyone has a right to seek refuge, seek to migrate, by crossing borders and trying to follow the laws of the Republic and see if they are justified to get visa. That shouldn’t be made illegal to do that act. This is what the US and Trump Administration have done with this Zero Tolerance.

What is worst of all, is that they have scarred kids, toddlers and marked them with pain, which was not needed or even legal by law. Because, the policy fits the strange narrative of the Republican party. That fits the Christian Conservative parts of the US, who cares more about fetuses, than actual human beings breathing crossing their borders. That is all insane, but shows the blatant disregard of humanity, that the Trump Administration administer at this moment. Peace.

Opinion: Sorry, but not sorry for the resignation of DHS Secretary Kristjen Nielsen!

That Department for Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen has now resigning and still it isn’t good news. It is just someone who has offered her greed for being in power, by defending someone indefensible. That is who she is and how she will be remembered.

This former DHS Secretary will be remembered for the way the she handled the Zero Tolerance Policy. The way she has defended the policy of separating children from the parents on the border. The way the state has built camps for kids and let them even lose their lives there. If not traumatise the kids and even cage them in. Depending on which private firm the state had given contracts to do this for ICE and the DHS.

Therefore, I am not felling sorry for Nielsen. She has written herself into the Zero Tolerance Policy History and will be remembered for the two years of tears, pain and sorrow, she has helped push on innocent people crossing the border. Which shouldn’t be done in this and treating the people like they are illegal. There are procedures and laws to enforce this, there always has been for sovereign republic.

However, making them criminal by passing over the border is totally outlandish. Instead of ensuring they are following the codes and the justice for everyone. Not everyone passing over the border would have the right or opportunity to get visa to stay. Nevertheless, the state shouldn’t act upon them this way. It is injustice to the innocent children and tormenting the parents for trying to find a better life or even trying to live the “American Dream”.

Like D’Angelo Gore reported in June 2018: “DHS told us the “zero-tolerance” policy went into effect on May 5, and between May 5 and June 9, there had been 2,342 children separated from their parents. Contrary to what Nielsen claimed, other administration officials have acknowledged a change in policy to serve as a deterrent to illegal immigration” (Gore – ‘Nielsen’s Rhetoric on Family Separations’ 20.06.2018, FactCheck.Org).

The Texas Observer reported this also in June 2018: “In a letter sent last week, 19 special agents in charge at ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations unit said that ICE’s controversial detention and deportation policies have made it hard for them to conduct investigations into threats to national security, organized crime, narcotics smuggling and human trafficking. “HSI’s investigations have been perceived as targeting undocumented aliens, instead of the transnational criminal organizations that facilitate cross border crimes impacting our communities and national security,” the special agents in charge wrote in the previously unreported letter. They also wrote that “the perception of HSI’s investigative independence is unnecessarily impacted by the political nature” of ICE’s immigration enforcement. “Many jurisdictions continue to refuse to work with HSI because of a perceived linkage to the politics of civil immigration.”” (Jason Bunch – ‘ICE Criminal Investigators Ask to Be Distanced from Detentions, Deportations in Letter to Kirstjen Nielsen’ 27.06.2018, Texas Observer).

We can see what her work did. She tried to defend and even downplay the narrative, as the innocent civilian migration, the asylum seekers was taken into custody and the kids separated by the authorities. This even made it worse for the same authorities to investigate or follow the illegal crime of drugs. Which has been part of the issue, this Trump Administration has used as a pawn in the Zero Tolerance Policy. Even making it worse to investigate that, because of the horrific tactic of separating families on the border.

She is despicable, she is part of the paradigm that brought the “Shameful Era” back in the United States. Together with Stephen Miller, Sebastian Gorka, Stephen Bannon, Jeff Sessions and the list goes on.

Now, she will not be the DHS Secretary anymore, however, she will always be remembered for caging in kids. For saying to the world that no kids died in the detention camps, when it did. She defended the evil of men. Kristjen stood by this and worked hard to downplay the results of the acts of the Zero Tolerance Policy on the Southern Border.

We can clearly see and remember what she did. Her legacy is sealed by her actions. The words done in defending something no-one should defend. Nielsen has done this to herself. The acts and words are defining her time in Office.

I don’t feel sorry for her, she made the cake and has to eat it. The ones defending her doesn’t care about violations against humanity. They don’t care about the innocent who was violated and taken into custody, because of her enforcement of the Zero Tolerance Policy. That is what will stain her name and her memory. Peace.

White House Sack-Race Continues: Bill Shine, apparently stopped shining!

Most of the energy of political work is devoted to correcting the effects of mismanagement of government”Milton Friedman

This White House and Trump Administration have a special place when concerning to its Communication Directors. Because during the tenure of President Donald J. Trump, there have officially been today 5 Communication Directors. That is impressive, concerning that the President only have been in power since January 2017.

The White House and President today accepted the resignation of Bill Shine as the Communication Director and Assistance to the President. He is following suit of Hope Hicks, Anthony Scaramucci, Sean Spicer and Michael Dubke. All of these has at one point been in this role and served the President.

Scaramucci still have the record in this Presidency as 10 days being at the helm. While Shine gotten a longer time in the role, than Hicks, but that is just about 20 days more. As Hicks got 225 days and Shine got about 246 days. We can all say that is short time to anything significant anywhere. Not that Scaramucci or Spicer even made an impact, except for jokes on SNL, Late Night with Stephen Colbert and Daily Show with Trevor Noah. They have made major impact there, but not elsewhere, even if they are pundits now.

So, Bill Shine is the 5th Communication Director, whose been in this White House. Barrack Obama also had 5 Communication Director, but that was during his two 4 year terms. That shows more consistency, because that has been lacking with this administration. Not that there is anywhere or anything that is consistent with Trump, except for lies, deception and acts of contempt of the office his carrying.

That is why, the act of having people about 200 days in their office, shows how little time or ability the President have to keep his staff. Even if Shine is becoming part of the Re-Election Team for Trump for 2020, as a Senior Adviser there. He is still leaving and ensuring the President needs to hire his sixth communication director.

That what this President do and does. Shine isn’t shining anymore, even he was the favourable pick. As he has the statute of a man, that the President looks for, someone that sexual harass woman, just like the President does.

President Trump, good luck finding someone good now. As we see, the appointment of someone by you, will not last long. It will be short stint and your reputation will be gone. Therefore, not that attractive place to work. Unless your a hack or someone who has already been disgraced by their actions in the past. That is why Shine was fitting as the fifth. Now, who will be the sixth? Peace.

Nepotism103: Cutting Corners to keep the Family Close [Kushner-Ivanka Edition]

Well, over the recent day, there been news of a John Kelly of last year trying to stop the White House from giving Security Clearance to Jared Kushner, surely there would be speculations into the wife as well, Ivanka Trump, who is the daughter of the President, both who are in informal or non-specific roles in the Trump Administration. They are there, but not really there. Which makes the whole arrangement more hectic.

However, ever since winning the election, these two, the power-couple behind the President. Has lingered around him. Not that they have any expertise or knowledge in public administration. No, they are just relatives of the President and therefore, trusted counsel. They are not what you say, career civil servants nor been ideological driven to get the position they are in. It is not because of their education or their profession, they have no experience and no merits to prove their value. Therefore, only the blood-line and the relations are the reasons.

That is why it is even more striking, that the power-couple behind the President are under fire today again. Because of an issue that lasted so long. They went so long without proper security clearances. It is now proven that the President demanded the son-in-law to get the Top Secret Security Clearance, even if he could be compromised, lied about foreign communications and other forms, which is used to prove scrutiny and eligibility for security clearances in the White House. The same was done by his wife Ivanka, as she also had revise her forms and information to the officials for Security Clearance.

These two wouldn’t have gotten away with it, if they weren’t related with the President. The White House has already been in a hot mess of the Security Clearances, as there been plenty with interim security clearances and not gotten properly integrated and following protocol, as the staff is supposed to be clear and trustworthy of such. As they are keeping state secrets and ensuring the safety of the Republic. However, instead there been plenty of questionable behaviour and connections, that even the ones who was already flagged and in question got appointed with the likes of Gen. Michael Flynn.

What we have seen and read is yet another step of nepotism. Where the President has resident and ruled in favour of his family and his closest kin over the Republic. Where the President are ordering for his own sake and not for the safety of the Republic. That is why Security Clearance given to Jared Kushner is done in spite of the laws. The same can be said about the position and abilities Ivanka has too in the White House. They are there because of the President and nothing else.

This is what Tin-Pot dictators does. This is what autocrats and tyrants do, because they doesn’t trust anyone else than family. This is like the mafia and crime-families, this is not actions made by government or public administrations, which are taken serious. They would hire and appoint people of expertise and merits in the fields. Not hire family members and give them ultimate security clearances without having an official office or position in the Cabinet.

Instead, they are two internal satellites within the West Wing. Doing whatever they like, as their mission, their value to staff is bound by family loyalty and not by any ordinary function. They are not afraid of being fired or retired. The family will always take care of them. They are as thick as thieves and maybe they are. Since the investigations are following them and they have to answer for the public for the orders and the appointment of themselves. Since, it is a public administration and not a Sopranos. Feel me?

Kushner, explain yourself, why you revised your documents a million times, John Kelly didn’t advance you and later you still got clearance! Explain, also Mr. President explain that and why Ivanka got a vital role, when none is doing anything significant. Peace.

White House ends this year with more chaos and a prolonged shutdown!

If you ever thought Donald J. Trump was a great leaders. Always visit one of his profitable Casinos in Atlantic City, oh wait, they all went bankrupt. Just as that should have been a warning from the king of debt. The art of the Steal, sorry Deal. President Trump is showing his true horrific leadership skills, as the calender year of 2018.

There been people leaving the Cabinet since the appointments, the list is longer than a phone catalogue. Therefore, mentioning all of them… would be so long and futile, that the Trump Administration cannot keep people around or even be a little stable. That is why there has been Three White House Communication Directors. There are soon on the third or the forth Chief of Staff. Who remembers Reince Prebius from the start, right? We know, that Trump is creating a mess, but blaming the people around him.

That is why everyone around is acting, except for Jared Kusner and Ivanka Trump, who is playing Civil Servants, while getting paid. That is what nepotism does. They are advisors who survives, because they are connected by blood, not by skills or paid by lobbyists to get hired in his cabinet. That is why at the current moment this is the titles of plenty people: Acting Director of EPA, Acting Secretary of Defence, Acting Attorney General, Acting Chief of Staff and an Acting Pentagon Secretary.

That is why the White House is in chaos. The government is looking foolish and terrible. That is because the President cannot rule himself out. He just blame others and fires them. If not get other people to fire them for him. Trump has started a trade-wars with tariffs, that is hitting the market. There are even reports of no export of soybeans to China. Which is a key market for this commodity, however, because of the tariff war started with steel and aluminium, are now hurting the market. The Stock Exchange is crashing and getting blown, there is lack of confidence in the markets and the wealthy doesn’t want invest in the erratic market, which the state has created by the trade-wars.

Trump has made this mess, he has closed the government as the Senate and Congress had voted over it. Agreed so, that the civil servants and state officials would get paid. However, the President didn’t care, because he doesn’t want to look weak to Conservative Commentators Ann Coulter, who said he was weak for accepting a deal without funding for a wall. A wall Mexico was supposed to pay for somehow. However, the President expect now the US taxpayers to pay for a fictional wall to serve the Southern Border. Which, no one at the Capitol want to give the old man, whose busy watching Fox & Friend, while he drinks doing Diet Coke and bitch about democrats on Twitter. Such a statesman. Nah, not really, but we all knew that by now.

Lets be clear, the whirlwind the US is in, because their own mistakes. They made the system and crowned this man their President. That he took it for granted and doesn’t serve them. Trump does this because of his ego and mismanaged judgment. The White House Cabinet is crappie, because he appointed them and later fired them. If not they resigned for various reasons, but never for honourable ones. As they should have done it for Charlottesville, Children in Cages and Prisons, Zero Tolerance Policy or even Drone Strikes in Yemen and Somalia without any transparency. However, they leaves for other things, because they want to salvage their legacy. Nevertheless, that train has left that station, as they all was enabling the President to do his despicable acts and policies without anyone stopping him.

President Trump will blame others for the financial crashing by his taxes levies, tariffs, trade-wars and other policies, which is making the world more unstable and lack of good trade. Even if he is supposed to be a genius. Everything he touches because worse. He is revising everything Barrack Obama did, without seeing the consequences or even thinking about who it hits. That is why there are more pain to see. Just as the innocent children are dying behind bars in the United States. That is the President fault, as his policy and his orders made it happen. He is guilty for the dying innocent children. That is the mere reality of what the United States has become.

That the wealthy are feeling a pinch, the elites are getting hurt. As they all had faith in Trump is ironic. As they should have seen it coming. He has been the snake-oil salesman for decades. He is proving that with how he runs the government itself.

The Shutdown of the government is a week old now or about so. Where the Trump is doing it over a fictional wall, a requiem of a racist dream. The President are risking wages, added more cost to the government of fan-fiction from the hyperbole white supremacists and their fear. That is who the man seeks support from, that is what he will be remembered for and also his mismanagement. Because even his close allies are screwing up like Mnuchin and his calls with banks before Christmas Eve. But, they are trying to cover-up for the mad-man in the Oval Office. Who cannot deliver and creating havoc on his own. He doesn’t own up to he, he will just fire the Fed Chairman and have someone acting their too.

That is why the President has an acting cabinet, into the worst Stock Market in ages, where the government is in a Shutdown, which will be long-lasting into January somewhere, maybe longer. Depending on the wall and how hard Trump tantrums will last. However, he will look foolish and he continues to hurt civilians and the ones serving the Republic over a tragic Greek tragedy. Something he wouldn’t get or understand. That is the reality.

US is a laughing stock and made so by the President. Who cannot keep himself coherent for a day. Sooner or later, even more of his decisions will back-fire. We just don’t them yet. But he will not enriching the Republic. No, he is on self-destructive mode and many are awaiting the Robert Mueller Report on the Collusion and Obstruction of Justice made the President. As Individual One will have to answer for his actions, at one point, just not while he is in Office. Peace.
