Trump-Ukraine: Like Clockwork, the Senate rigged the Impeachment Trial

We knew this could and it did. Senator Majority Leader, the most spineless man of America. Republican Mitch McConnell has decided loyalty towards one man is more important than constitutionalism, rule of law or even honour of office. The Republican Party see it more fit to shield their own, than to follow the codes, the laws and abide to the principals of the Republic. That is reality after today.

The Impeachment Resolution is how to shield an trial, how to not do discovery, get people interrogated, interviewed or even tried. They are not even trying to look into it. Just like a mafia, they are covering it all up. Closing the books, giving a limited time frame, letting it all go and calling for another beer. Maybe with their favourite Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

If there ever was a party for rule of law, it is clearly not the Grand Old Party. They are in it for power and by any means. The ends are more important than the means at this point. Doesn’t matter what the President does nor his associates. Even when plenty of them is either in jail, awaiting sentencing and so-on. His lawyer, his National Security Advisor, his Campaign Manager and so fourth.

Still, the Party will shield this man with a sham trial. A trial so shambolic and insincere. It is taken straight out a dictators playbook. No witness, no evidence or no production of the paper trail. Even a small-frauds case or a Judge Judy episode has more legal backbone than this. The resolution is a farce and a facade. Nothing noble, just mere deception.

McConnell are maybe able to save the fate of Trump. Give him leeway on the case. But his life, his life-work in the Senate will forever be stained by this. He will be remembered as one of the men, who enabled the President, gave way to the President and who sold the Presidency on the altar of Power. Because, that is what they have done.

I’m not American, I’m not a citizen of the United States. But its easy to see what’s happening. The motion is set and the actions are insincere. This a cake-walk. A final dance on the two articles of Impeachment. As the President abused his power with an ally to get dirt on a political opponent. In this regard, Ukraine and stopped military aid as a blackmail to get their will and investigate the son of Joe Biden. That is the whole thing and McConnell will not continue to investigate it properly. Not even try, after Trump has stopped witnesses, not produced documents and so fourth.

The Senate, if they will vote for this and do this. They will be remembered as loyal brigadiers to Trump. That Trump stands above the law. That they allowed him to misuse his office, not follow procedure and heckled an ally for personal gain. They allowed Trump to do that like a Tin-Pot dictator.

That is what the GOP has succumbed too. They are also spineless and worthless men in suits and ties. These people are the empty suits any sort of arrogant need, they don’t stand for anything, but bows to his every whim. That is who they are and that is the display they are giving the world. Peace.

Trump-Ukraine: House Memorandum validates the impeachment, but the Republicans will not take down their own

There is no need to dig deep in the United States House of Representatives Memorandum on the Impeachment of Donald J. Trump. The President of the United States, which was publicly dropped yesterday on the 18th January 2020. This has been a slow train coming, but a needed one.

This report put anything in perspective and shows the need for the impeachment. The Memorandum of the framers and the ones who written the two articles of impeachment makes all sense. We have known this, but its put collectively together. Trump knows this, but trying to propagandise it.

President Trump and his administration has acted swiftly to ensure the U.S. House of Representatives couldn’t do their duty with congressional oversight. Trump knows this and the lack of openness, transparency and acting as it should in regard to Congress. The President and his administration didn’t do that. It talked big-game, but stonewalled it. Tried to do everything it could to stop the investigation and find the evidence of the wrong-doing. Also, not letting vital persons testify and misuse the power he had.

What the Memorandum states is what the Senate should do. The Majority Senate, which is based of inner-party of Republicans. The supposed “Law and Order” party, the strong constitutional based and founding father loving party. However, that is only in elections that matter, but they are above the laws and statutes themselves. That is atleast how it seems from afar.

Because, even with the plea, the show of congressional oversight, the rights to impeach and the rights to subpoena the President. Seems like this Presidency couldn’t care less, and he couldn’t care less for foreign interference in elections for his gain. That is seemingly okay in his party and they are all for using all tools for victory. They will sell Montana, Idaho and the Department of Justice to Russians, if they could. That is how it seems.

However, the Senate can show that this is wrong and that they care. I don’t expect it. I expect that they vindicate and accept this. They don’t want this humiliation ahead of 2020 elections. They will trade away moments of power, instead of valuing rule of law and justice. They rather want the office and secure their future. It is more important to stand by Trump, than actually caring about the Constitution.

That the President can misuse power, abuse his power and threatening the up-coming elections. This is what the Senate can address, as the House has already done their bid and has the Memorandum as a proof of their findings. We cannot expect magic, as his fellow bed-mates run the Senate. If they were loyal to their station and Republic. They might have served justice and seen blood. Nevertheless, the result might be just hogwash. They will just thwart the whole thing and seal their misgivings. If Trump is guilty, so is the rest of the party too. Because, they let him and gave way to his whims. They all let him, but also was water-boys for him. These people can either show that the truth matters and that the Republic matters more than person.

However, don’t expect that dance. Expect that the politics matter more. The only way these Republican’s will be henchmen to their own. Is if their own seats, their own livelihoods and their reputation is for sale. If they can themselves be in legal jeopardy or even fall. Than, they might do something. But this memorandum will not seal the fate of the Presidency.

No, only if the Senators fears the elections of 2020 and think they can escape. If they don’t, they will go along and accept being puppets of the President and his foreign backers. Because, he uses all means to win. The President doesn’t care, as long as he “wins”. He doesn’t care about the laws, constitution or protocol. What matters is him and his cause. The Republic is the second fiddle.

Now, we can soon see if the Republicans in the Senate cares about their integrity, the values of the constitutional norms or even due process. Don’t expect it. Really don’t expect it. Since, they haven’t cared with the Russian Probe and neither this Ukrainian scandal. They have done whatever they can to spoil it like bad TV-Hosts on Fox News. Therefore, Trump might be saved, but his legacy is tarnished. Because we all know what he does and how he operates. Nothing matters, except for his own ass. Peace.

Iraq: Brig. Gen. Seely letter to TG Abdul Amir (06.01.2020)

Iran: Ambassador Ravanchi letter to Secretary Gueterres (03.01.2020)

Opinion: Generals doesn’t get assassinated without consequences

When President Donald J. Trump of the United States gave the order or the thumbs up for a drone attack directed towards General Qassam Soleimani, the Top Commander of the Quad Forces of the Revolutionary Guards of Iran. Therefore, the direct attack on Friday, the strike, which sealed the fate of Soleimani is strike against the powerful in Teheran.

That Soleimani is a man who has sought influence by any means, that is true. That he has scorned many people, ensured their demise and killed. That he has done as covert-mission, spying and direct planning with Americans and other allies to destroy ISIS and others. To ensure more stronger allies of Iran in the Middle East.

Still, the assassination, the murder of Soleimani is a watershed movement. Not because the American Congress wasn’t informed, but random people at Miami Mar-A-Lago was. They knew more than the ones supposed to give “go” sign to it. Plus, the international laws of warfare and thus, the potential incriminating act of violations of such. Also, shows what dire straits that is ahead.

As there are more drone attacks in Iraq. There seemingly hunting season for the Americans there, as they target all things associated with Iranians. While, there is reports of giant marine ship deploying for Iraq as well. Clearly, the United States is escalating everything. While trying to say the killings of a General wasn’t escalating, but a deterrent.

Secretary of State Michael Pompeo and President Trump is for the first time really seeing the effects of their warmongering. They have ordered bombing in Somalia over the years, in an insane rate. The US has bombed targets in Syria, but to no relief. The US strategic friendships and allies within Syria has dwindled, as the Kurds was sacrificed a few months ago. Because, Trump fiercely gave way to Turkish President Erdogan and let him attack the Kurds. Therefore, not like he has gotten many to play with either.

As, he again breaks more protocol, no diplomacy, just drops a drone attack on one of the most powerful men of Teheran. One of the men with huge influence, one who has the ability to get people in line and get operations secured on behalf of the Iranian regime. That is the man that Trump got rid-off.

Still, the facts remain, the situation in Iraq doesn’t get better by this. Neither, does the continues drone-strikes and the possible deployment of more troops. As well, as reports of various possible targets and use of proxies in region from Iran. They have said they would avenge Soleimani. Who blame them?

Would the US have forgiven and let bygones, be bygones, if one of their most powerful and prestigious generals killed. I wouldn’t think so, they would retaliate with biblical proportions and leave no one left unpunished.

That is why the decision to take the General out, seems unplanned and not considered the implications of doing so. It seems like the U.S. is pulling the strings in the aftermath and trying to use their intelligence and do more snap actions. However, it doesn’t seem like they have a plan nor a vision. Other, than blasting more people in Iraq, which they have done for several of decades and hope to get away with in this one too.

The Iranians are naturally hurt, they are naturally feeling beaten and also scorned by this. To think otherwise is naive. Not that all Iranians would love the General, but neither does every American respect the Donald either.

In this instance, it seems it would be better seeing the General breathing. Not because his was a good man, but let mother nature do its own cause. Might have secured another stage and other possible avenues. Instead of these war-games, where the civilians, where the war-torn Iraq get even more scars and the region get even battles on its shores. All supported with the mighty American military complex and vicious cycle of destruction continues. While the dirt and soil turns red, even the moon gets the taste of blood.

That because, one President thought he would be a wise, thought he did something heroic, but instead he unleashed a beast he doesn’t control. He will possibly make Iraq and Iran suffer, because he could and let the poorest Americans draft to war-zone, where they have heart for or care. Other than its better to be in the army, than poor in Indiana. However, that doesn’t save the day and neither did the demise of Soleimani.

We are living with the ramifications of it right now. The new tenseness and uncertainty, as the there will most likely be more hurt. It will be more destruction and more death. While the entitled, the wealthy and the ones in power, never will see the damage they do. As the war-games, the casualties and the ones fleeing doesn’t hit close to home. The United States didn’t do this in self defence. They did this because they could. No one should deny that. Not like this was Pearl Harbour or anything. Not even damn close.

Whatever, the U.S. did, they didn’t do no good. They only causing more harm and more issues to handle. The have open a can of worms and they cannot close it, since they destroyed the lid. Peace.
