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.
Let’s be clear, I wrote as early as the 9th November 2016, I predicted that the United States would fail because of the newly elected President Donald J. Trump. What I wrote was a bit to true apparently. As I was worried about his demagoguery, his racists remarks and his statements in past. Therefore, a lot of it was profound and now the messages over the last two years has gotten into action.
The Zero-Tolerance Policy, the family separation, which has lead to 14,000 kids separated from their parents on the border. Where they are taken to Private Company Camps and detained until the destiny of their parents, even sometimes without the will of the parents also adopted. This is the evil of men.
The same administration has made the Muslim Ban, and banned people entering from Yemen, Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, Iran, Libya and Syria. All of these nations has been hit by this. Therefore, for the first time in a long while for the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), the President from Somalia Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed ‘Farmajo’ have not able to enter the United States with a valid visa for the UN Gathering of Head of States. That is how ill-willed the Administration has become.
While knowing this, the same government have reconfigured the NAFTA deal and given it a new name, but the purpose are still the same. What more striking in the sense of economic vision is the endless tariffs war that the Trump Administration has put forward. The realities of these will first come now and show effect. As the Steel and Aluminum was the starting point, but not the end-game. The Trump Administration has gone all out and even against his own partners, the European Union on this matter. Therefore, the industry and export production of things in the United States might be hit. Not the answer to the economy, which it needed. Just today, the General Motors are shutting down 5 factories and planning to cut 14,000 jobs. That is not the message the President promised, but with the wars on tariff and trade-war, there will casualties. It just happens to be the working class that is losing, while the President continues golfing on his estates.
What is also striking is his use of the migrant caravan from the Latin America and Central America as a brownie points. Sending down the army to the US-Mexican Border and fencing it too. Sending them down on Thanksgiving Weekend not doing any proper work. When there was raving fires in California, where they could have done something fruitful. However, these thousands of soldiers will be remembered not only for a political game, but also throwing tear-gas at innocent children and civilians, asylum seekers as the US closed their borders. This made it to a stand-off, where the Mexican authorities has also closed of their borders in retaliation. That shows the signs of the abysmal state, the United States is in. They are just senseless, ignorant, in-bread bastards who doesn’t care about the plights of the world, a world where they have interfered and destroyed. After doing so, electing an Agent Orange, the Russian Manchurian Candidate and destroy the lives of immigrants. That is what the US is doing.
It really shows how bad the Banana Republic has become, when a US Citizen, who happens to be a journalist is cut to pieces in a foreign Republic, where he visits the Embassy of the Kingdom where he is living in Exile from. There he is cut to pieces and tortured. After that, the President himself defended the Kingdom, because it is more important to trade billions of guns and ammunition. Than the lives of US Nationals who are butchered. This shows how the US are becoming a GIANT Banana Republic.
That is how Trump has made US a giant Banana Republic, that is just hearing how they defend and campaign for him on Fox News. Not forgetting how his administration is hiring lobbyist, family members, how the cronies are misusing state funds and how they are rigging elections in the midterms in Georgia and Florida. That is just all proves of how the Trump Administration is creating the biggest Banana Republic. They will surely be in the vision of Trump, where he is destroying one piece at the time. Where he is using cheap rhetoric and spinning the news, while destroying lives, taking away people’s right. Not rebuilding Puerto Rico or the other places where the floods where. The massive amount of people losing their Medicaid and medical insurance, the ones losing their jobs and the ones who are struggling, because the Republicans are working for the Multi-National Corporations. They are serving the likes of Wall-Mart and Amazon. They are not serving the public, neither the immigrants and asylum-seekers, but they are serving the elites paying the President. Just like in a Banana Republic.
That is the reality. Others didn’t want to see it, but I saw it in 2016.
That is why I end with quoting myself: “This racial laws and deportations will hurt the economy and make sure the state becomes a Banana Republic; What is special is that the United States will have a free-flow of guns, ammunition, but will make it harder to import goods and also export goods with worse deals, have lesser taxes, still high debt yield and add expenses on health-care while the citizens has to cover themselves. This while the US President hasn’t a plan to help lower-classes as the minimum-pay or salaries increase for the 80% who still get added tax, also pay more for health care. The US Electorate got all reasons for feeling foolish if they even read this” (Minbane – ‘FYI: President Trump will create a Banana Republic out of the US!’ 09.11.2016).
So congrats, Americans. You are now showing what sort of Human Rights Violations you do. Also, the world will not forget it. As you have barren Somalis from entering the United States, the US are bombing with drones more than ever there. The US supports Saudi Arabia’s filthy war in Yemen and destroy lives there. While not letting them in. The Latin American Refugees and Asylum Seekers are coming from Republics, where the US has interfered for decades.
US. Has. Become. A. Banana. Republic. And. He. Only. Needed. Two. Years. Peace.
