Opinion: The Abysmal Banana Republic, which is the United States!

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.

Brexit: The Draft Withdrawal Agreement, is that the UK is about leave, but not really leaving!

The charade is up and the draft agreement was released. The hard bargain is that the United Kingdom would lose finalizing this agreement that is made now. Because of the predicament they are already in. they want to trade, but don’t want membership. They want to control the movement, but has to consider the Northern Ireland. Therefore, the Republic of Ireland vote in the European Union has values. Still, the ones who thought the UK would be sovereign by leaving the EU is wrong. They are still connected, but losing their vote and say in the Union. While they have to follow the Union, that they just left.

Brussels won this one. They really took the cake and ate it, but they just used the EU Regulations and Rules, the set-up and configured landscape that is made the EU Member States, which again control the Third States towards the Union; if they want to trade and be incorporated with the Union. In this regard the UK.

The UK and Tories was bound to loose, they have promised an easy road, but everyone on the outside knew they would loose. They just waited to reveal it, until the Withdrawal Agreement Draft was published.

Now, people want to distance themselves from it, the Cabinet and fellow MPs. Who has been solid Brexiteers and wanting to leave the Union. Because that would make the sovereign UK so much better. However, this deal that are delivering the protocols and the measures that any NON-MEMBER STATE would have to encounter, while still being association with European Union are going through. Is something the UK is not ready for.

The Conservative Party, the Theresa May legacy and the whole debacle over the two year work towards today from the Referendum on 24th June 2016. Are clearly showing the blatant disregard, but also the nativity across the English Channel. As the London based politicians thought they could maneuver and trick this one. To negotiate and make it look funky fresh. Instead, they have lost the Membership, their say in the Union and have just pay more for imported goods.

They are having an agreement where the Court Justice of the European Union still have jurisdiction and mandate, even binding force as they leave. The UK is also demanded even as they leave to contribute to the EU budget until the 1 January 2021. Also, ensure there is a Common Travel Area between Ireland and UK, as with respect of the Good Friday Agreement and previous agreed upon measures with the EU considering the Northern Ireland.

Clearly, there is a lot more, but the Tories and the PM May has lost big in this one. They have bound their state as a non-entity, but still giving powers to the Brussels. Seemingly lots of concessions without seeing the implications. Or if they saw it, they accepted because they knew consequences if they pulled out of the bodies or took power. Than, they would have a harder time trading with the EU.

The UK are getting more of the same, as this deal also ensures a Single Customs Union and also free movement of labor, just like today. While also losing their say. But they get a joint Committee, that they will share together with EU until the final withdrawal.

Clearly, the years in limbo will continue with this continued deal, but not the deal anyone really wants to sign. As the beneficiary isn’t the UK, but the EU. That is the funny thing about it all. As the ones wanting to leave, are the ones paying and not the ones remaining. Who would have a say and actually contribute as an equal partner. Instead, they are divorcing, but still kissing the ring.

Also, there was so something about Northern Ireland their rights, but the draft agreement had no sections mentioning special rules or arrangements for Scotland or Wales. They are just ugly ducklings who doesn’t matter to London. As London has to trade the waters carefully in Belfast, but not so much elsewhere I suppose. Peace.

Brexit: Boris Johnson and Theresa May sneer at each other at CPC18, but nothing comes out of it!

Surely, I am grateful I am not a British citizen today, as the Conservative Party Conference in 2018 in Birmingham are going on and what a spectacle it is. Today, it really shown its dire sides, as the Tories are showing their flex and their plans ahead. If not their internal squabble, which in the end makes the Brexit even harder.

The Tories should at this point, be able to have a policy and negotiations team to configure and mange the withdrawal as a Member State with the European Union (EU). However, the government and the cabinet, which has had major changes, are now in trouble with its former members. If that is David Davis or anyone else.

Then you have the biggest skeezer is Boris Johnson. Who the day before his performance at the Conference, walked in a wheat field, just to piss-off his former boss. This being the Prime Minister Theresa May. Therefore, the MP Johnson, knew he could trigger her and used again harsh words against her. Because she is easy to pick on.

Johnson knew what he was up too, just like the articles he writes. He suddenly has all the solutions, but he didn’t deliver them or compose those while campaigning or even being the Foreign Secretary. Therefore, he is a bit out of touch, as he plays big for the public, but is a mediocre politician in reality.

Not that Theresa May is great either, she should have worked more strictly with the policies and ensured the cabinet would work towards the same goals. Instead, all the different fractions within the HM Government have come to the public and the Tories seems unsure how they want to deal with the EU. That the PM feels betrayed today is natural, but that is part of the political game.

Both of them is playing with high stakes, both promising solutions, but them both should know that they are risking their political lives. Johnson has now less to loose, but this doesn’t make him look brilliant, more like a man who didn’t take charge while he was in power, but from the sidelines says everything can solve it. That is just a direct insult for the months he was in the cabinet.

May still have no solution for the Brexit, neither what the EU will accept and neither what the Tories really will agree upon. Nevertheless, the withdrawal will move on. The final day is getting closer, but the Tories are looking more split and more in the wind, than before. Instead of being certain how they want to move, it looks like internal power struggle seems more important, than the future of the United Kingdom.

If any of them thought this was wise, let me tell you, the world is looking and boggled by what your up too. As the lack of tact and brilliance is staggering. That the Boris Johnson acts like does and that he gets away it. The Labour should also address his claims, as he used the opportunity also to attack them. May defended herself, but also shown disdain about the comments made by Johnson.

This here just shows what the Tories has lacked from the get-go, a clear-cut and willing policy of what they wanted on the outside and what they really are risking to loose. As they are acting more as still a member with free trading, but not with free movement. Which the EU will not accept, as that is not accordingly done after EU protocol. Therefore, the Tories continued Pick-and-Mix strategy is flawed as it is.

Today’s speech and answer. Only shows the lack of progression and lack of policy. That the Tories are still at the high sea and not sure how to get back on land. Peace.
