Opinion: The U.S. Supreme Court will not help the cocoa-farmers of West Africa

The recent judgement at the Supreme Court on the 17th June 2021, which was a case against Nestle and Cargill in concern with the child labour, slave labour and other horrific workload of the cocoa producing farmers in West Africa who supplies the needed cocoa for the production of these multi-national corporation and big-businesses world wide.

Both Nestle and Cargill is huge corporation who has massive profits. They earn money every seconds and is so big that their reach is substantial everywhere. That is why this case was significant. Not that it was a shocking result. Because, it is only showing the true values of the United States and that the Corporations are mattering more than people. The U.S. was built on slave trade and on slavery. Therefore, having court validating it in 2021 isn’t that absurd.

The U.S. Supreme Court shows that it doesn’t value lives or human rights.. They are justifying child labour and child slavery on the plantations, the farms in West Africa. The U.S. Courts rather defend the big corporations, than finding remedies or means to shield the weak. The ones who suffer so they the judges can drink their hot chocolate and eat their Lion bars after finishing the trial.

Well, we are in 2021 and the farmers of Ivory Coast, Ghana and elsewhere are far from saved. The Western African nations better start legislation, programs and use their means to stop this. The U.S. Courts will not save them. The U.S. will only come with stern recommendations and plea to the United Nations to ratify international laws. However, the U.S. will not impose international laws on U.S. based corporations or on company directives taken by U.S. nationals. No, they will only dwell on that if it appears to hurt a farmer in Alabama.

This sort of judgement only shows that the U.S. will not come to save the world. They are only coming with their corporations to earn profits and indulge on the natural resources of others. The capacity of Ivory Coast and Ghana is how they can counter this. Nigeria and Cameroon should decide this. If these nations was wise. They would form an alliance, a collective effort and ensure they trade on their demands and needs. Not only having to comply every single corporation or their entities. As they will only try to get it for the least price and sell it to the customer by as much as they can.

They need to consider to do something. As the U.S. is no caring. They don’t value the farmers, their plight or the work environment. They only care about the corporations and their responsibilities. Which is clearly not stop child labour or child slavery. The U.S. Supreme Court couldn’t care less.

That is why the West African nations, the Cocoa Producing Republics needs to take the matters into their own hands. Make legislation forcing the ones buying cocoa to comply with just means. Pay the farmers a decent price, ensure their ability run their farms after certain standards and not allow child labour/slavery. That should be easy to and the elites of the Republic’s would help to benefit thousands of farmers across the region. They would get better paid, safer workplaces and their children get educated, instead of toiling around working for a unforgiving international corporation who doesn’t see them or doesn’t value their work.

That is the gist of this. These rich international corporations have all the money of the world. They have the possibility to make a difference. They might even get some of their products registered as “fair trade” and other certifications. However, they are still not stopping the ancient practices of having kids working on the fields. They are not using their profits or their wealth to make a difference.

No, they rather live in mansions and enjoy the perks of the world without any concern of how they made this money. That’s what they do and the sweet taste of chocolate is feeding their pockets, but they cannot even give the poor, the ones in need or secure the future for the kids of the farmers. Because, the only thing these greedy guts see, is the bottom-line and their ends. Peace.

Philippines: Statement of Vice President Leni Robredo on the recent hate crimes against Asians in the United States (05.04.2021)

Opinion: To drink a Coke or not to drink a Coke, that is the question…

Today the reactions to the new voter laws in the State of Georgia is happening. Rightfully so. It is a need to address and take account of the awful and disenfranchising electoral laws the Republican Party have signed into law. The act of Governor Brian Kemp and his fellow Republican Representatives. They have all deliberately done this and with intent of making it harder for fellow citizens to cast their ballot and vote. That is for the simple reason. The less voters means more likely a Republican majority. Therefore, it is winning strategy to make it harder for the general public to vote.

Now… what is tragic about the politics in America at the moment. Is that instead of looking at the initial issue. The progressive and the ones who wants voters to show up is going up against the businesses in Atlanta, Georgia. The ones who has a base there and the ones who funnel money through the political system. A system that the Democratic Party and the Republican Party is fine with in the days of sunshine, but speaks ill of in the days of rain.

This week has been a storm and been heavy rain. The raindrops are clearly hitting hard and not so easily to get to the storm-drain. Nevertheless, the ideals should be to revise the system. Get new legislation to counter this one or repeal the acts that disenfranchise voters in Georgia. That should be the focus. The focus should be on the ideals and integrity of the ballot, which John Lewis stood for and fought for all his life.

Not battle the beverages industry and one of its giants Coca-Cola Company. Yes, the giant international beverage company has its sins to answer for. They have their ills and its profit motive at any given time. However, it isn’t the bottles of Coke fault for the voters law. Neither is it in the interest of a bottling and beverages company to stop people from voting. Their best interests is to get people hooked on their drink and purchase more of bottles next time they pass by a Wall-Mart.

That is why politics in the United States have gone bonkers. Yes, the politicians are screwed by lobbyist and secretive PAC-Money, which funds their massive and expensive campaigns. Still, in the middle of that. That doesn’t mean they are responsible for the ills and evil, which occurs now and then. Right now that’s all on Governor Kemp and his Republican comrades.

A bottle of Coke will not solve this. Neither will a bottle of Pepsi. Heck, no sort of drink will juice up the veins of democracy. Not the Speakeasies or the roaring 1920s will make fudge about it either. Coca-Cola isn’t the company to solve or in the dominion to do so. Yes, they can stop giving money to the Republican Party, but that they will only cease for a hot-minute and return when they need favourable legislation. As long as the dark-money and PAC money can fund politicians. The companies will return and secure results on their “investments”.

The activists shouldn’t go for a boycott and stop drinking Coke. That is a short-term and a losing strategy. Who will win? The one with billions in the bank and can sustain a hit or the few consumers with a moral obligation? I think the guy with the biggest bank and there are so many who don’t care. Those folks will drink Coke regardless.

That is why, the ones who wants change and make a difference. Call the legislators. Email them like crazy. Make their team and staff go nuts over all the feedback. Make the legislators of State of Georgia packed with messages, faxes or whatever they get memo home. That what they was wrong and they need to revise it.

The GOP and the Governor will not care if you stop drinking Coke. They will not give a damn. You are the ones who losing your beverage. It is not difference then when Republican activists burns their Nike’s or destroyed their coffee-maker. In some ways … its the same thing and neither was winning.

The activists and the ones calling for this. Better think ahead. The Democrats who are fearing for the ballots and voters of Georgia. Better do “Good Trouble”. What they are doing is symbolic hogwash. This is changing their Tinder Profile and thinking their soulmate will love that you were drinking Pepsi instead of Coke. Sorry brother, but that’s not it and that wasn’t the reason why the person swiped your way.

Let’s be clear. You can stop drinking coke, but that will not save democracy. You can boycott Coke, but that not resolve the issues either. What you can do and what you should do. Is to show civil disobedience and call for changes in legislation. Both in Georgia and in the Federal Law. So, that dark-money cannot run rampant behind closed chambers and decide what lawmakers do. Secondly, you can pressure state legislatures to actually vote for laws that makes it easier to vote and not what they did this week. That is what you should do. Not stop sipping Coke.

That means visible protests in the streets. Sponsoring billboards, sending letters, emails and other texts to legislators and by all means be vocal about the cause. Nevertheless, the idea of stopping to drink a beverage. Well… that is futile and not doing anyone any damage. Coke will not be hurt and their bottom-line will not even feel the sting.

It is a time for everything, but boycotting Coke over voting legislation is redundant and a foolish enterprise. Especially, when there are so many other avenues where the ones in power would fear you and would feel your presence. They are not fearing what your drinking in your living-room and at your kitchen. No, they are fearing your feet stomping in the streets and your voices cracking close to their chambers of power. That is why they take away your access to vote in the first place. Peace.

State of Georgia: Governor Kemp disfranchise own citizens with new election law

My dear friends: Your vote is precious, almost sacred. It is the most powerful nonviolent tool we have to create a more perfect union.”John Lewis (2012 speech in Charlotte, North Carolina)

Republican Governor Brian Kemp. The State of Georgia Governor since 2018. He was the Secretary of State before running for Governor for the Republican Party. In the role as Secretary of State. He was indirectly co-ordinating the polls and the elections of his own candidacy. That is the sort of man Kemp is.

Therefore, after losing both Senate seats in the recent elections in January 2021. It was inevitable for the Republican Party in Georgia to change the rules ahead of the next election. The Republicans have no senator from Georgia. The State of Georgia have turned more and more blue. That has hurt the pride of the GOP and they need to do something.

Am I surprised by this? No, was this shocking? Hell no. The Republican Party and their allies are gerrymandering like insane if they are allowed. The GOP will do whatever they can to bar people from voting. Especially if these parts of the community is most likely voting for other parties. The GOP will do what they can to make it harder to vote or make it such a hassle. If the GOP get lower voter-turn-out. That is a win for them and they will most likely get their representative in.

That’s why its not insane that its happens. Especially, when the Democratic Party was able to flip Georgia and get both Senators. What is striking is that they are doing it in Georgia. Where the late Representative John Lewis came from and fought all his life for a revised Voting Rights Act.. In a manner, which would strengthen the rights and ease the boundaries for the voters to actually vote. The opposite of what Kemp has done lately.

If Kemp and other guys would honour the legacy of John Lewis. They would have made it easier to vote and also create more civic education on the value of doing so. Instead, they are pissing on his legacy and shitting on his grave. They are doing the opposite of what Lewis fought for. Just because the likes of Stacey Abrahams is able to get the public behind her and get new voters in.

We know that is the reason for this. State of Georgia is a place where the Republican’s doesn’t value the vote. Heck, they don’t want the vote or voters. They rather see less people show-up and they are automatically getting their folks elected. Because, the majority will struggle to vote. Standing in lines for hours and not easing restrictions for the ballots. If these Republicans believed in the ballot and voting in general. They would have opened the gates, but instead they are sealing of the doors and hoping nobody is looking.

What is also is seeing how easily someone of the stature of Lewis can be forgotten this quickly. How the State Representatives rather safe-guard their own offices, then actually believing in what Lewis fought for. That shows so perfectly well by all the new procedures for the next election. Which is the incumbents and the ability for the Republicans to still get a majority. This is why they did this.

The GOP in Georgia didn’t do this because they cares for democracy or everyone’s right to participate in elections. No, they are doing this to make it harder to vote. It is easier to buy a gun or do other things than voting in the state. That is because, one thing is a priority and the other is an issue, which the ones in power don’t want you to have. If they didn’t fear the ballot and the power of it. They wouldn’t have made it so hard to cast it.

Brian Kemp and his likes fear the public. Kemp and his allies are worried about their sentiment and their will. If he was loved by them and had their support. He wouldn’t have signed these things into law. However, he has done so to hopefully save his own office. That is the mere reality here. Because, the Governor cannot run the election like he did in 2018.

What is the saddest thing. It is happening in the state of the great late Representative Lewis who stood for the stark opposite and went into “good trouble” fighting for it. However, that fight has to continue, because the ones in power now. Clearly doesn’t value the integrity or the trust of the public in regards to Democracy. Because, if they cared that… they wouldn’t have done this and made this happen. Peace.

Opinion: U.S. should offer Jovenel Moïse political asylum

When it comes to President Jovenel Moise and is mandate, the Haitian constitution does not clearly address the situation” Ned Price

The Core Group of Ambassadors, Organization of American States (OAS) and United States of America supported President Jovenel Moïse term ended on the 7th February 2021. However, he has used all his tricks, avenues and means to stay in-office. That is being done while the general public is demonstrating and the authorities are using force to stop.

Therefore, with this stalemate. It is only one thing that makes sense. That Jovenel Moïse seeks political refugee in the United States of America. This because his a puppet for them and not wanted by the Haitians. They don’t want him as their ruler. The people don’t want him to be in charge and be their highest ranking official. No, they want him packing.

Jovenel Moïse have been unpopular for years. His election was a mess to with such a low turnout it shouldn’t have been legit in the first place. This President have had scandal after scandal. A man who has now after his term ended given land away to the elites. Just to ensure the rich and powerful is on his side. While also striking at the Judiciary and elsewhere. Everything in order to consolidate power and not hand it over. Even when he knows his time is up.

The US is paying him lip-service, while the public is in the streets. Washington DC is clearly invested in him, as U.S. State Department Spokesperson Ned Price have defended him too. They are saying he have another year in office. Because, his their installed prince and puppet.

If the US wants him so much. Why don’t offer him political exile? Maybe give him shelter in Wilmington, Delaware. That since his position and role matters so much. However, in Haiti and Port-au-Prince his not loved or cherished. Therefore, it is only righteous that his returned to sender. Unless, one of the Core Group member states wants him instead.

The US and the rest of the supporters should get the memo. The Haitians don’t want him. That’s why they should read the stars, the moons and listen to the Gods. They are imperialists and acting as colonialists, imposing a leader on the general public. A leader and a man they don’t want.

Jovenel Moïse should be packing, leave and never be in office again. There should be elections and a new leadership in order in Port-au-Prince. However, the grand stand appears to happen, because the US and others are supporting Moïse no matter what.

The public wants him resign and call for a another. They don’t want a neocolonial puppet at the helm. Nobody can blame them for that.

If the US wants a puppet… they can take him in and shelter his ass. They should send him documents and allow him entry. Hell, they should give him citizenship and let him settle down in Little Haiti in Miami, Florida. Maybe he can play golf at Mar-A-Lago, if Trump allows him in.

Nevertheless, he shouldn’t be in office in anymore. If the US cares so much about him. Give him political asylum and stop tormenting the Haitians. Since they don’t want him anymore. Peace.

State of Georgia: The Senate seats goes to the Democrats

The Special Elections in 2021 have gone to the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party candidates Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff. These two beat the Republican candidates. What is striking about these two candidates. They have not only won the seats, but they have flipped the Senate. That is a big deal so in 2021 the Biden administration have the House, Senate and the Presidency. Therefore, the Republican Party cannot block nominations or laws through before the midterms at earliest.

What I enjoy about this is that these two are connected to the late John Lewis. Warnock was the pastor of Lewis and Ossoff was a previous intern of the late Georgian Congressman. That is really great to see the folks around the civil rights hero is still roaming in the August house of Washington D.C.

In previous elections the voter suppression and rigging has ensured the Republican majority in Georgia. Brian Kemp for instance is the governor of Georgia was running his own government and securing his own election as the Secretary of State. Therefore, the state has been before a hot-seat for electoral nonsense. However, in this special election it has been all genuine and the same happened in November 2020 run-off as well. Since there is no proof and you don’t have a Kemp who is siding with himself.

Stacey Abrahams, the person who was tricked and rigged out of the election in 2018. Has now shown her leadership has values. She has the capacity to get new voters and bring attention to the Democratic Party cause in Georgia. Stacey is the other hero in Georgia. Abrahams should get credit for the turn of events. Where there has been a massive shift and she has been able to gain more voters. Getting the people mobilized to vote in districts and such. That wouldn’t have happen at the same level if she didn’t do what she did. Therefore, Abrahams needs her credit here.

Today is a good day, but now the work starting. Now the democrats can control all chambers and rehash the state of America. They can if they want to change the laws and make it better. After 4 years of Trumpism and Corporate Socialism. The Democrats can actually make a difference and be there for the citizens. They can also have a substantial and enforce proper foreign policies. Not only do things because donors or American businesses will profit for it. Therefore, the State of Georgia election can have ripple effect. That is if they use it properly.

Hopefully, these Senators have been inspired by John Lewis and will continue his work. Also continue on the positive progression that they have had during the campaigns. These folks also won because Trump himself wasted an opportunity and have targeted the state in a selfish angle. An angle where he wanted to overturn certified Presidential Election of 2020. So, that he could win and also get Republican’s not to trust the process. Therefore, they have gone against themselves, which is really unique and that did backfire.

State of Georgia have delivered. Hopefully these two Senators can make a vast difference. They can challenge and represent the goodness of the New South. They can resist the corporate democrats and be progressive. That is what we can hope for. That’s what the likes of me hopes for.

Georgia should be proud. They have done something amazing and nobody can take that away from them. Acknowledge the ones turning a state blue from red. That is something great. Peace.

Opinion: The Tea Party is nothing compared to what Trump will bring…

The Tea Party Movement of 2009 eas an reaction the Democratic Party and the Presidency of Barrack Obama. Which ushered in a movement and aspiring leadership within the Republican Party. That in the end gave a platform to the likes of President Donald J. Trump that thrives on these populist and racists acts.

That President Trump is soon over, but his “Trumpism” and his theories will live on. This man will try to thrive on it and get monetary gains on it too. That is what he does. This is his next racket. Where he uses the political platform and his “legacy” to build on the “America First” and the MAGA crowds. To find ways to make himself viable. Create narratives and even use fiction to gain momentum.

That is why they are still forging the narrative of a stolen election. Continuing with endless law-suits that ends with nothing. The Trump Administration is trying to configure ways to earn funds, build a organization and find backers. Which will give them funds and capital post-Presidency. Since, the President needs it with defaulting debt, criminal cases and lack of good lawyers to carry the pending trials after the loss of “Executive Privilege” and leverage of the White House.

This is why Trump will build on the nostalgia, the ideals of White AmeriKKKa and the “forgotten classes” of society. Where he can bring middle America and sprint into the White Supremacy and ideologies, where he still resembles their “dear leader”. That is why his tried every trick in the book to overturn an election. Just to ensure the safe space and legitimacy. Where he could still earn profits of his public office.

Trump is just using these avenues as he thrives on hate and racism. If he didn’t, he wouldn’t associate or defend these people. The man wouldn’t have ushered in these Executive Orders and made the policies as brutal during his term. As he would like ICE Agents to raid homes like the Gestapo and put kids in cages for profiteering companies to build makeshift camps for refugees and asylum-seekers. However, that is what has been done and that is why his favoured by racist within the Republic.

The ones who would like and endure a split of the Republic. To go back to the Confederacy and break the Union. So, that Trump could run the split Republic and be their sole-candidate. Be the Tin-Pot Dictator of the Republican South and rule the rural parts of America. Where he got the support. As that is the saving grace. They would enjoy to be run by a con, a scammer and liar-in-chief. That is their guy, because he deliver their racist backwards agenda.

This is why Trump is more dangerous than the Tea Party Movement. This is the extension and the hard-core base. The Qanon and armed militias trusting blindly in their “dear leader” and ride or die attitude, which even ends up in violent attacks on State Houses and threats of coup d’etat. Just like the ones that went after the Governor in Michigan. And the trying to seal the case with the Texas Attorney General petition to the Supreme Court. This is all using the powers and their stations to destroy Democracy from within and the Republican Party plays into it.

They are all following Trump and being led by his motives. His selfish and narrow-minded acts, which only serves him and his purpose. This man will feed into anything to possibly gain. Create fake culture-wars and spin all sort of conspiracy. It will be lizard-people, pizza-gates and whatnot. Without any proof and Alex Jones will play on the strings. Rush Limbaugh will sing his songs too. All of the Presidents Men will join in.

Therefore, the reactionary Tea Party Movement gave the world the likes of Ted Cruz, Matt Gaetz and Sarah Palin. However, what Trump will bring is much more. It will be even more fierce. If he will get a new party or a new movement. If he will bring a new TV station, which is more direct and insincere compared to Fox News. God knows, but if the Tea Party was a clue to 2020 and 2021.

Surely, that will be nothing compared to the masses that will join in the MAGA and “Stop The Steal” and whatnot now. These folks will be off the hinges and have no pity. These folks will not even conceal it and they have proven that. They have been allowed to thrive during this Presidency and will be much bigger danger in 2021 when Biden gets in-office.

Biden have to rule while these groups and while Trump vile them-up. There will be reactions and will be merciless means. Yes, the rallies and speeches now seems like rambling incoherent nonsense. However, that will not stop them. These folks will continue to battle, to confront and find means to get a return.

Trump will use this support for monetary gains and to be relevant. He will boost this as much as possible and use this as a stepping stone. Because, he needs some leafs of hope to cling-on too. Not that its anything good or positive for America as whole. Nevertheless, when has that ever been the case with this man? Never, right?

So, he just continues the negative spiral and wants to thrive on it. The GOP is playing along and letting him do so. We still don’t know the effects or if these will continue all through. However, the Tea Party built a momentum and made people’s careers. Why shouldn’t Trump do the same now. As he has been the President and can usher in his own. Even if it is despicable and disgusting as it gets. Because, there is where he has his base.

He will build something along the lines of Charles Lindberg and his America First Committee (AFC). That is where Trump belongs, the “alt-right” and white supremacists will all cling-on to that. This is his ball-park and where he can thrive. Be their leader and their patron.

That is how things seems and the lame-duck President is playing along to it. Especially, when its reported that he invited the “Proud Boys” to the White House. That says it all. He wants to find his space and get a pay-off like he always does. That is his motivation and his means to an end. There is nothing beautiful or sincere in this. Only a political bargain for his future. Which most likely is a weird and straight up knock-off of the Tea Party Movement with some sort of sprinkles of hate and racism. Peace.

Opinion: Trump would have ushered in a bloodless coup d’etat if he could

The incumbent “strong-man” and Republican President Donald J. Trump seems to willing to trade the truth, the will of the people and everything else for one simple thing: Him staying in power. He is willing to let people lose their licenses to practice law in filing in fraudulent petitions to the courts. The President is willing to use sedition and forging a coup d’etat by triggering the electoral college his way.

That is the sort of man that speaks of rule of law and justice. The man that supposed to be righteous President of a Republic. A man whose willing to steal the election for his own favour. Where all the stacks of odds is against him. He has lost both the popular vote, which he has done twice and also the electoral college. In the same manner as he won in 2016. Therefore, he should take the loose on the chin and man-up for civilian life soon.

However, as a fake “strong-man” and a bunker-boy he wants to be the greatest ever. The man who is supposed to be winning, but ends up loosing. It is always about him. Nevertheless, he is willing to jeopardize institutions and rule of law. Just so he can reign supreme. Because this man needs leverage and needs help to salvage anything before it is over. This man has so many loans and huge debt to repay. Without the office, his estates and his companies might suffer hard. As well, he might be only President in living memory because of court orders not allowed to open an Foundation in his name. That is the sort of ordeal waiting for him in January 2021.

If Trump had a chance he would made a shot and taken away certification from the various of states. Just to undermine the elections and ensure that he could win. This is why his even trying to sway state legislators in swing states to appoint electors who will vote for him. That is a coup d’etat and rig the election in his favour.

That the Republicans are playing this game and using the lame-duck position to do this. Only shows how little they care about the value of the polls. They don’t care about the ballots. Playing with the will of the people for his own gains.

The White House should make it easier for the Biden Transition. Instead, it is working and postponing the ideal easy move of an new administration when Trump is over. We can clearly see that the Republicans doesn’t value the state, but the individual is more important. That one man is more important than the laws and the moral judgment of character. They should have started like Bush and Obama did when their terms was over. Instead, his petition courts, being dismissed and having erratic mismatched press conference to conceal the lack of evidence for the courts.

President Trump shows again that he doesn’t value the Republic. Trump and his team only values power and feeding its base with lies and deception. Seemingly there are people buying into it and they want to be conned.

This is their long-con … to trick the public and its supporters. However, in legal terms and within the reach of electoral laws. They got nothing. None. Zero. They are on a fishing expedition and cannot catch a single thing.

However, we are seeing that the “strong-man” isn’t capable to rig himself to second term. He warned that he wanted to do this. Playing with the legitimacy if he lost. That is what his doing and trying configure himself on the throne yet again. However, that shouldn’t work. He should fail and fall flat. Nevertheless, it shows that the institutions and the American democracy is super fragile and needs reforms. Because, it cannot be this easy for a ruthless and a reckless person like Trump to fiddle with it this easily. Peace.

Opinion: Kanye could have ended up like Nader

I know the Year of 2020 is full of surprises. Kanye Omari West, the rapper, entrepreneur, music mogul and fashion designer could have caused havoc. Kanye could as an independent presidential candidate caused similar results to what Ralph Nader did in Florida in the 2000s.

I know this sound bonkers and weird, as the Flordia 2000 Presidential Election was contested and close. There was technical glitches and possible helpful hand by the Governor of the time, Jeb Bush. To push his family member and Presidential Candidate George W. Bush to victory. Alas, the game is different in 2020.

However, my key point here is that he could have ended up as the Green Party Presidential Candidate Nader. Nader was able to gain enough votes and ballots in such a manner, which in the end gave an edge to the incumbent president.

Nader was much more organized and was a political savvy guy. His in another league than Kanye. That is without a doubt. Even if Kanye is more of a celebrity and a musician. He still within a minor campaign and without to much spending was able to get 60,000 votes in 12 states where he got qualified and had ballot access.

This is why in an obnoxious way… the phenomenon of Kanye could have been the one tipping scale in favour of Trump in 2020. That is, if he had been able to hit the deadlines and be eligible to run in all the states. The states where there was less of margins between Trump and Biden. There he could have thrived just enough to tip the scale for Trump. Just like Nader did with W. Bush.

Nader got so many votes in 2000. That he in a way gave way for W. Bush. He got the moderates and the ones who could have voted for Gore and secured a Democratic Win of Electoral College in Florida. Therefore, the same story could have been told in 2020.

Where the Independent “non-starter” and “gimmick” candidate Kanye could initially be the one who caused enough stir to take valuable voters from Biden. However, Kanye came into states where he wasn’t the factor or even concerning either Biden or Trump. He just was on the ballot and the votes he got was indifferent to the results in the end. It wouldn’t alter it or make an issue.

Kanye, if he had done this more organized and had a real team behind him. Not just ad-hoc nonsense, which he did. The man could have stirred the pot and done a Nader in 2020. There was close enough races to call. That him on the ballot could have added weight to the scale. So, the lack of knowledge and timing has suffered more his campaign. Which in the end only let him be a punchline in an election. Instead of being a man with swagger and a campaign worth taking serious.

Kanye was a joke and held worrying campaign rallies. The man looked unstable and the erratic behaviour wasn’t a good sign. However, that hasn’t stopped people from voting on candidates like that.

This is all hypothetical and only mind games. Kanye could have done 2000. That would have hurt Biden. That is maybe what Democratic Operatives was worried about when he decided to run. However, he couldn’t even muster a decent game. Kanye couldn’t even drop a quality 16 bars to be a feature. Peace.

Opinion: Trump doesn’t deserve a pardon

For a President of the calibre of Donald J. Trump. He does not deserve pardon, neither is it righteous. To all the folks he has hurt in his time in office. The way the Trump Administration has operated and worked. It is only right that the head of that government acts accountable. For a man who has stifled any investigation and used the office to get away from prosecution.

Trump has stopped the Congress in their investigations, blocked witnesses and avoided to release documents and testify. The man knows his in the wrong. The White House has breached the Hatch Act so many times. The White House has used foreign policy to earn profits for the Trump Organization. The Trump estates and hotels has been places of trading policies over a secret meeting. While profiting on the business and the deals being made.

This President have issued harsh treatment of civilians, asylum-seekers and minorities. The President have shown no remorse and no concern in putting kids in cages and separating families. This man has had no issues breaching international law and human rights violations. Stop the ICC from investigating practices in Afghanistan. A President dropping bombs all the time in Somalia with no oversight.

Trump needs to answer for sins. The criminal activity, the ones where he has conspired with foreign entities and foreign operatives to ensure victory. The man needs to answer the usage of the office for own personal gains. That is necessary by all accounts. Unless, the US is fine with a open corruption and heist within the oval office. That is all up to them.

This man didn’t care if he traded Syrian bases and the Kurdish allies over a business deal in Turkey. That is what this President does and did it willingly. Giving his Trump Organization funding, while selling the stakes of American army abroad. That is what he has done. This is why he has a failed coup in Venezuela on his hands too. Where he even invited the wanted man on the throne at the State of the Union speech. This is how blatant the man operated.

Trump needs to answer for his misgivings, his lack of action and response to the COVID-19 and Coronavirus. There are so many cases and so many times he could have saved lives, but didn’t act. As the Commander-in-Chief. He could have sheltered more lives, but they weren’t important to him. If they were? He would have used enough of his power to install more Supreme Court justices. Because, he had the energy to do that…

Donald J. Trump needs to answer for his activity. Every action made during his tenure. The ill-will and the breaches of trust. The misuse of office and the corrupt activities done in broad daylight. As he was willing to trade the White House and Congress for some sweet dollars. That was his game. At the same time galvanise his supporters with White Supremacy and racist policies, which needs to be addressed now. Because, some of them will be a brunt on families for generations. Where the kids and parents are lost from each other and cannot live life together. That is all because of what Trump ordered and did.

As President, he was responsible for this. That is his legacy of how he treated people. How a President picked business interests over people’s security to have heath care insurance. That is the sort of man he is. If he has a heart? It is either for money or maybe Ivanka. The rest can sail their own boat. The people is useful to cheer him up, but can drown for all he cares. He wants titles and glories.

He can send the army and brutalize citizens for doing their legal duty of demonstrating. The man can use his office to dismantle and destroy people’s lives, because there is a buck for him in the end. That is the legacy of Trump. He is willing to trade lives over profit. Use foreign operatives to win elections and obstruct justice to overcome litigations.

This is why he needs to answer in the Courts of Law. That is why he needs to spend time to address petitions and cases pending. Why he needs to address the possible tax evasion, wire-fraud and whatever else awaiting him in the courts. Plus a possible of other investigations happening after his time in office. Because, that would be healthy and this time around he cannot block witnesses from testifying. Which he has done deliberately while he was in office.

President Trump doesn’t deserve to pardoned. If he gets pardoned, then you have forgotten about the kids in cages and the Zero Tolerance Policy. A policy he accepted and vouched for. Where he gave no mercy to asylum seekers. The same no mercy he deserves, as he enters the Courts of Law. That is justified and this man doesn’t deserve a bargain. He acted with haste to put other people’s lives in danger. It is time that he answers for that and also pays the price for doing so. Peace.
