Opinion: Manchin is the King without a Throne

It is evident the longer this lasts and this tenure of President Joe Biden. That the Democratic Party doesn’t have all the ducks in the row. Neither does the party have good enough whips to get legislation through Congress. If they did, the majority House would have easily passed a bill and the Senate would have passed it too. Just so it could be finished and in the end signed by the President.

Alas, Biden is stuck with renegade and moderate corporate Democratic Senators who isn’t willing to budge. Joe Manchin of West Virginia is one of them. A man who is willing to block and not sign a Infrastructure bill and add additional spending. While the same man has most likely accepted tax-cuts for corporations and huge spending on the military. Therefore, his reasoning is most likely flawed.

Manchin is a mediocre man. A man who could easily pose as a Republic. At least when he accepts “small” government taxes for the rich and corporation. However, will not spend additional tax-payers funding on roads, rails and infrastructure. Neither, support other government services, which is in dire need. As the aftermath and current time the public is suffering from the global pandemic. It is not like the spending bill on the infrastructure bill going to solve all of this, but it will most likely patch some of the hurt.

However, Manchin rather speak softly from a million-dollar yacht or his mansion. This man who earns fortunes on the coal-industry. He will not support the green industry, because that hurts his own businesses. That is the sort of conflict of interests a politician shouldn’t have. His involved in one trade and rather save that one. Than actually prepare the Republic of the future. That is selfishness and not care for the voters in his constituency. They are just pawns in this game of fortune for his own benefits.

If Manchin alone gets to fiddle with the bill for own self interests and lobbying concerns. Than you know that he does for the gains of his own bank-accounts. This man doesn’t care about the jobs or the climate change. No, he just wants to pocket fat-checks and ensure that his industry is alive at any costs.

Manchin can soon go out and sell “clean coal” like Trump did back-in-the-day. Because, there is no difference between these too. They are both sell-outs for the industries and the corporate agenda. He don’t care about the environment or the future.

In a sense, this man is a self-proclaimed king without a throne. His a king with a domain and title. A senator who believes he has the supreme power and rights to get the final in everything. It would be refreshing if the Majority Leader of the Senate Chuck Schumer had addressed this man and gotten him in line. However, they don’t have the character or the heart to do so. They rather bow their knees to their king and pleas for mercy…

This diet-Republican isn’t what the people are seeking for. Neither is following the will of his own state. His just listening to his own pocket and not dwelling on the concerns of West Virginia even. They are just pawns for him and his recklessness might cost the Democrats in the Mid-Terms. Since, they are not showing progress or positive changes since Trump left office. This bill might have changed the narrative a little bit. However, with the likes of Manchin.

Don’t expect much. Peace.

Opinion: Trump’s empty plea

Former President Donald J. Trump haven’t given up the loss of the previous Presidential Election in November 2020. No, he is still in pursuit of gratification and evidence of his cause. The former President is working hard to find proof and make a case for voter fraud.

What is striking is that Trump is sending a letter dated yesterday to Secretary of State of Georgia, Brad Raffensberger. Someone he has called in the pasted and asked for help to find the “missing” votes. Since that called leaked, the state and the authorities have been forced to investigate the matter and the involvement of White House in it. Therefore, the letter from Trump isn’t helping his case. Alas, it is just enforcing the way he moves and shows his delusion is working wonders.

We know that the Republican Party and the Qanon crowds has sourced themselves around the belief of a fraudulent election and that it was a rigged election in favour of Joe Biden. However, there haven’t been any proof of this and the Courts hasn’t vindicated Trump. These courts haven’t been filled with liberal hacks either, but many are Trump appointees who has still said: “There is no proof and has dismissed the cases, because they have no merit”.

That’s why Hugo Chavez, Kraken and even witches has appeared as possible helpers. They only missed the Gremlins, Gollum and Groot. However, none wants to show up to Rudy Giuliani’s press conferences and Borat’s sister wasn’t helping either. Therefore, there is little to no redemption and neither will any serious attorney or lawyer touch the election fraud cases. These are tainted and been a political ploy to give him a “second life”.

The former President haven’t saved his cause or his legacy. There is no way he can. His policies and his actions speaks for themselves. It is not like he has any sympathy or great backers to relief his losses. No, his businesses and family is entangled in lawsuits. Several of cases is opened against him and moving along. He does not have leverage or political power to stifle them anymore. Therefore, the need for vindication is dire. As the “king of debt” soon has to restructure and recoup funds for mature debt on previous investments. While his businesses hasn’t been cracking since the Presidency. They have tanked and the financial isn’t better after his years in office either.

Former President Trump is a failure and the reality will hit soon. Sooner or later, him and many more of his allies will answer in the Courts. It is just a matter of time and the collected paper-trial will hit home. When there is no worry of crazy-MAGA crowds and anti-vaxxers will follow the ones who search for the truth and applies those in the house of justice. That is just a matter of time and his time is soon coming. If it is the cases pending in Southern District of New York (SDNY) or elsewhere.

That’s why Trump needs Georgia, but what he forgets… is that even the Electoral College there wouldn’t save his campaign or make him win over Biden. It is a fools hope and a enterprise of the dumb-hearted.

Trump isn’t ready to live in reality. He is living in alternative facts and a nation of fiction, as his retirement is still in splendour and lavish lifestyle. Still, there is plenty unknown factors remaining and he could easily be warranted to testify. That’s just a fact and he should be worried about that.

The election and the insurgency of the capitol says everything of his will to use any means to get power. He will trade it all, as long as he “wins” and get the office. The former President doesn’t care about the will of the people or justice. His the sort of man who believes it’s within his right to reign supreme. However, that vanity is also the reason for his own downfall. As he couldn’t manage to feel the suffering and the carnage he created for so many Americans. Because, he believed that the economy and the people could just live normal in the middle of a pandemic. However, that is proven to be untrue and the lives it has cost is on his watch. He could have saved them, but he was more concerned about himself. That is his arrogance and that’s why his seeking redemption to this day.

This is the personification of a egotistical man. A man who is self-serving and only acting upon his own self. Trump will not save his supporters or his closest associates. No, he will bury them to save his own life and that’s how he operates. Therefore, the recent letter on shows that he still seeks vindication. Nevertheless, that ship has sailed and hopefully the rule of law will catch up on him as well. Peace.

Opinion: Cuomo’s fall from grace…

Breaking: Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York said he will resign from office on Tuesday, succumbing to a ballooning sexual harassment scandal that fueled an astonishing reversal of fortune for one of the nation’s best-known leaders” (NYT Metro, 10.08.2021).

No other than Democratic Party elected New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo is now resigning. As the cases of sexual harassment is piling up on him and the evidence has been collected. The savvy politician and wise-guy character of a man has to do the right thing. Which he actually did and stepped down from office.

The Governor Cuomo seemed long to be the future of the Democratic Party. That he could grow out of the shadow of others and have more finesse. However, he has done shady things back home and not only held great press conferences in the middle of the pandemic.

No, this man has used “slave-labour” tactics to produce antibacterial sanitizers for the local government. By using prisoners to make it, makeshift to ensure there was enough and he has also withheld and juiced the stats on the deaths in the care-homes of the state. This has all made it look better, than it already was.

This in combination with the countless of woman, which he touched, fondled and used his power to harass. Which is wrong on all grounds and is unjustified of anyone. There stories needs to be told and the systemic act of it, which makes gross.

There is no way the Governor could ride the storm. As the New York lawmakers was calling for his impeachment and process to get rid of him. The only thing making sense was to step-down and leave. He had to do this, because there was nothing to salvage.

He is now a creep and a serial womanizer, who has lost his reputation and has no ways to return. The acts against these was wrong and it had to cost. This was no “MeeToo” scandal, but a justified investigation into sexual harassment, which the state itself had produced and proven before their press conference as well. So, it is not mere allegations and possible “hearsay”. No, they have looked into and got proof of it.

This means the State Prosecutors have worked on this for a long while and collected “intel” on it. They have gotten affidavits, evidence and co-ordinated this in a manner, which they know they can sell it to a jury and a judge. It is likely that they did this with caution, as they are targeting the governor in this.

Cuomo looked so promising, a man of hope and as a proper politician in the middle of a crisis. His resilience and drive to fix it. Made it seem like a likeable and strict personality, which could weather a storm. However, that was for the cameras and what happened behind closed doors wasn’t that jolly. It was distasteful and disgraceful.

Governor Cuomo spoiled his chance and got high on his own supply. He thought he could use his office to get “additional” perks, which wasn’t true. The governor did things without their consent and is the reason why he fell.

Now, there is need for a new election and elect a new Governor in New York. You can wonder who wants to step-up to the plate. Whoever that might be, it got to be someone credible and just. Not another creep and womanizer, because then we’re going into the same trap as before. Peace.

Opinion: Biden is lukewarm coffee Part II

We have now for some time seen the real deal of the Biden Administration. The people have been appointed and hired. The Democratic President Joe Biden who took over after a shambolic and snake-oil salesman in Donald J. Trump. Biden had the world ahead of him and with some promises of changes during the campaigns. However, the U.S. is more of the same and not a vast change from the Trump administration.

The U.S. government is still bombing Somalia. Selling weapons and arms to Middle East allies who fights wars in Yemen and elsewhere. The U.S. is still caging and detaining asylum-seekers. The President is maybe not crying foul and wanting a wall. However, the detention-centres are still a viable industry and the President has not shut this down. Neither has he address the ruthless and injustice served by the ICE agents across the Republic.

Biden is clearly lukewarm coffee. He is not hot coffee or cold coffee. No, his the boring and adherent liquid you drink in need, but not because you enjoys it. It is a tragic blend and misuse of good coffee. As you let it become lukewarm and that’s why it’s not a tasty cup of coffee.

President Biden is just that. This is why he cannot forgive student debt by Executive Order. Neither could he or his administration configure the relief for millions of people as the pandemic and lack of steady salaries possibly could evict millions of citizens from their landlords. He has just suspended the payments and the rent will sooner or later haunt the tenants who has to either save or move out at one point. While they will struggle to find another home or flat to live in.

President Biden has also made it impossible to find a measure to make Medicare for All a thing. Neither opening up for a public option. Therefore, the man who was beside Obama with Obamacare and additional measures with Medicaid. The current administration is even more mediocre with that after years of dismantling this by the Trump Administration.

Biden and his government is just a light-Republican edition. There is little to no real changes to see. Especially not from a far. The so-called “progressive” representatives and senators in the Democratic Party haven’t done much either. They are nice in the media and making statements in the press. However, they are not amending laws or policies which follows their “progressive” ideals. It is more of a posture and selling out to the rest of the Corporate democrats. Therefore, there is little difference between the “moderates” in the Democratic Party and the Republican counterparts.

This is why Biden bipartisan works makes sense. As the Democratic Party and their works are so much alike the Republican. Only difference is the party and the donors. The Democratic Party have the majority, but by what they have achieved. It doesn’t look like it. The Republican party is still in sort of control and giving the Democratic party a majority seems like a failure. Since they are not using it or trying to do what they promised.

Biden and the Democratic party will suffer and possible be hit in the mid-terms. That’s because they had the majority, but acted as a minority. They didn’t even try or use their authority for common sense polices. Policies that is popular by the general public and across the board. Yes, the donors and the budget would be bloated. However, it is not like the previous administration cared about that. The fiscal responsibility shouldn’t only be held by Democrats while Republicans can spend like drunk sea-men. This is why Biden could have spent vast funds on student debt and Medicare, which would have made legendary. However, he rather be a moderate and corporate politician who could easily be branded with an elephant instead of the donkey. Peace.

Opinion: Biden don’t believe in the freedom of speech

Well, during the Trump Administration it was courtesy of the Republican President to call the media the “fake news” and not address the media. They only sent out the Spokesperson of the White House and let bygones be bygones.

These days with the Democratic Party President Joe Biden. Things are not getting better. In 2021, the true nature of his administration is getting out. Not only the nonchalant lecturing of the world. However, they are also seizing networks, media houses webpages in a raid from the FBI. Just like pirates taking away content and news pages ability to report. That is done as a sort of display of “national security” but really to stifle the press in other regions of the world.

This is all falling back on the Executive Order from June 9th 2021:Executive Order on Protecting Americans’ Sensitive Data from Foreign Adversaries “. Where President Biden furthers the powers and continues the path of Trump to go after foreign sites and web-pages. In this regard has no been used against news organizations in the Middle East. Which happens to report in another way than the Washington D.C. accepts. Because, they we’re located on .Com the U.S. say they have jurisdiction to take these sites down. Therefore, they can internationally go after people online. As long as they have a certain power with U.S. law there.

That’s why we can see that the U.S. have now used these powers and by the President who has given his authorities these powers to seize these new-sites. That says it all by the lack of freedom of speech, liberty to post online and produce content. When a nation can go across borders and close news networks or news-sites belonging elsewhere. The lesson here… is that Biden and his government doesn’t really believe in the freedom of the press. Only to the anointed ones and the ones who parrots their agendas. If they differs and has a .com. They should be worried…

That the U.S. does this only shows their true heart and their lack of integrity. That they are demeaning and imperial in action. The Biden administration rather block and silence outside media. Especially, if it see it as a resistance or reporting, which differs from what the U.S. deems undesirable. That is how it looks and Biden cannot run away from this.

Biden and his Executive Order just prolongs and extends the powers Trump had issued in his time. There is no difference here. Only that one man masks as a hero. While the other is the supposed villain. Ironically, Biden is doing the same and furthering the legacy of the interference of the imperial U.S. state. They are doing this online, but it shows their real intentions and what they are gunning for.

I wonder, how would the U.S. have reacted if the PBS, VOX or anything was blocked or jammed online in the nations, which the U.S. has silenced media from?

That seems to only be the fair thing to do. Why should just the U.S. be allowed to silence media? Why shouldn’t Syria and Iran block U.S. media houses now?

Biden deserves to be pushed for this. As his administration and his government is blocking foreign news-sites and news networks. What rights does he have to do this?

Now, the governments of Middle East should retaliate and answer this. Not only being mull and look at it. They should answer back and block U.S. media from their shores. That only makes sense. As the U.S. Imperialism in 2021 needs to be retorted and this act is disgusting. Peace.

Opinion: Biden must be so forgetful

Let’s get this straight: How would it be if the United States were viewed by the rest of the world as interfering with the elections directly of other countries, and everybody knew it? What would it be like if we engaged in activities that he is engaged in? It diminishes the standing of a country that is desperately trying to make sure it maintains its standing as a major world power” – President Joe Biden (16.06.2021).

The United States government have over the years used their power, their might and ability to get puppets and friendly government elected. If not, they have overthrown peacefully elected people to get in leaders who are working directly for Washington D.C.

The US has interfered not only during elections, but after to get their leaders in office. The CIA and other organizations in proxy have intervened. The U.S. have spared any sort of resorts and resources on getting their people in power. This being in Latin America where the U.S. have installed their regimes and they have been working for corporate American interests.

That being Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatamala, Chile, Bolivia and so on. The list is endless. Some are saying the U.S. has interfered in 45 countries since the Second World War. The U.S. installed their puppet in Zaire, the now Democratic Republic of Congo after they helped to assassinate the elected President Patrice Lumumba. That’s how the DRC had decades of despotic rule with Mobutu.

That’s how the U.S. rolls and works. They are using their power and might. They have their agents and their front-organizations to dismantle and ensure their interests are secured on foreign soil. The U.S. doesn’t value democratic values, they only value US dollars and profitable enterprises run by U.S. corporations.

So, when President Biden says what he says. Does he think we forget about Bolivia during Trump and the failed “Wonga” coup of Venezuela? Like does he think we are this dumb or naive?

That we don’t know what the U.S. has done and have been willing to do? Like installing the Shah in Iran and making it a pariah state after the Iranian revolution leading to his fall. That’s just what the U.S. does and leaves behind open wounds. The likes of supporting interventions in nations like Libya, but not having a clear path after overthrowing a President-for-Life Gadaffi. Therefore, Biden should take a step back and maybe have a few history lessons.

The U.S. has a history of using their army, organizations and the CIA has been implicated in overthrowing governments. The U.S. have been involved in coups and in election interference to get their folks in power. To think otherwise is to revise history and forget what the U.S. has done over the years.

The U.S. has installed and secured their interests above all else. They have later preached “democracy” and “liberty”. Though it has been hallow and shallow, as we all know why they did this in the first place. That was to get their value for their US dollars in that Republic. This is the gist of it and its no joke.

Biden please take responsibility. This is not funny. We know and you should know. The U.S. have exported its imperialism over the years. Time to take responsibility and be accountable. Not only think flattery and words like these will skim over it. I hate to say it, but it won’t.

We know what the U.S. has done and been committed to do. I wouldn’t be shocked, if suddenly Biden took down someone who would turn to Russia/China anytime soon. Instead of being loyal to Washington. Peace.

United States Capitol Police: Open letter to Members of Congress – January 6th Commission (19.05.2021)

Opinion: Special Envoy Feltman is not the right man for the Horn of Africa

A career diplomat and a man who is controversial. Is not the sort of figure you send to fix or amend issues. An outspoken and ideological man like Jeffrey Feltman will only configure the conflicts and the situations at hand for the benefits of American interests. That is what he has done in his position most of his life.

Except for his stint under Ban Ki-Moon in United Nations and prolonged under Antonio Guterres. He has been a career diplomat across the Northern Africa and Middle East. His role in Lebanon and elsewhere is where his most noteworthy from.

Feltman is a person that take sides. When he actively takes sides in divided landscapes as a senior career diplomat. What will he do as Horn of Africa Envoy? I doubt he will wind beneficial middle-ground or emphasis on the common grounds between the parties. He is afraid of the Iranian and possible Turkish involvement in the region. As he also seeks to promote and secure the American interests first.

That means we know that this Special Envoy will be partial and be affected by his allegiance. He will not come with a clean slate or be working accordingly to the problems at hand. This man will not solve the issues or come with clear mediation. No, this man will further U.S. interests. These words are taken from Karim Makdisi who teaches at the American University in Beirut. Who assessed Feltman’s role in the area as an ambassador.

When you are known for things like this and going into the Horn of Africa at his very moment. The person should be less questionable. Joe Biden appointed him since his been a person trusted in the Obama Administration and has a diplomatic record spanning over years. This is a token recognition of that. However, his still a man peculiar fella who suddenly going into a mine-field.

A person who believes in “non-interfering” but interfering to avoid “enemies” interfering. Therefore, that split-personality trait doesn’t make much sense either. Except he lives in a cold-war paradigm with Iran. Which clearly could be shifted to anywhere in the world.

Feltman will pick sides whether it is in Djibouti, Egypt, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia or Sudan. This man will also pin-point and look after the U.S. interests. That is why this man isn’t just a random a dude travelling and taking a safari. No, this man will not be the best diplomat. A man who could easily ask for a military government in Lebanon (wikileaks leaked cables proved that). He could easily assess a situation and confess to the sustainability now. Just to buy peace and the comfort of having a U.S. ally on the throne.

As a Special Envoy he is supposed to mediate in Tigray conflict, which has been going on since 4th November 2020. There he will by default have to intervene with the Tripartite Alliance and get vouched by them for talks. However, Abiy haven’t been in favour of any real talks or outsiders looking into it. As that would devastate his image and tarnish his “reformist” mind.

The Special Envoy is also supposed to mediate in the Al-Fashaqa triangle. Where the Sudanese have sent more forces and secured their border points. While the Ethiopian with their Tripartite Alliance have entered in here as an escalation of the Tigray conflict. Abiy have held small talks with Al-Burhan, but nothing sincere. It seems likely that the Special Envoy needs a miracle and I wonder, if he would booster the new ally in Khartoum or try to appease Addis Ababa. Hard to know, but with the likes of Feltman will have to be calm and figure out what matters here.

The last piece of trouble ahead is the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) and the Nile dialogue between Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan. The three has held negotiations and talks, but haven’t landed on a agreement to settle the shared water. This here is both a talk of sovereign use of water sources and how that will affect the up-stream nations. This is why the Special Envoy have to dwindle into colonial agreements and newer ones as well. While being able to play ball with Cairo, Khartoum and Addis Ababa. His career task alone to finalize and be able to please all parties. Someone has to give, but we can wonder who will do that.

The GERD negotiations and talks alone will be more hostile. As the Ethiopian claims in the Al-Fashaqa region/triangle and their skirmishes inside Sudan. The relations has soured over this. That will not help the Special Envoy before even entering. As well, as his intervention or possible mandate hasn’t been granted by any of the parties involved. Who hasn’t a favourable view of American touches here. As the previous administration was taken Egypt’s side and this feeling might linger on.

Therefore, the likes of a Special Envoy in the first place is a noble idea of Biden. Nevertheless, taking a career diplomat should been seen as a positive. However, the history of Feltman and his manners. He can be seen as a spinster for American interests over the needs to salvage peace. This man isn’t the one who should have been sent. Maybe, Biden should have tried to get someone appointed through the African Union or boost IGAD itself. Even though these mechanisms are weak, but joint ventures with United Nations has helped in the past. Therefore, if Biden and UNSC had intervened with a UN-AU prospects into both Tigray, GERD and Ethiopian-Sudan tensions. The possible outcome could have been better and properly monitored by the International community.

However, a Feltman will only serve Washington D.C. and their needs. While being a token American interfering for these interests. He will not be there to be a peacemaker. Just like Abiy isn’t a man of peace either by any stretch of imagination. Al-Burhan and the Sovereign Council is also military men. When there is very civilians and more soldiers on the ground. There is little stopping more conflict. There is a need for mediation and talks between the leaders who orders the battalions.

Nevertheless, Feltman isn’t the man and just by the mere history. It is a flawed enterprise to send him now. Especially, when I cannot see or heard any of the parties have really asked of this of late. The need for local solutions is clear. There is a need for salvaging hope in the midst of the conflict. Feltman isn’t the man to interfere here.

He is getting a false start, as he comes as a forced surprise on all stakeholders and governments. It is not like he has been vetted or accepted by anyone else than Biden and Blinken. They have handpicked him and vouched for him. Now, he has to drop his credentials at all the mentioned capitals and after that pick a leaf for possible talks about the advanced weaponry and silence them as well.

I wouldn’t want to be in Feltman’s shoes at this point in time. First his not the man for the job. No matter about his long career. The reputation he has follows him and makes him questionable at best. Secondly, he has a mandate from Washington D.C. but not from the any of the sovereign nations his supposed to interfere in. Third, the U.S. isn’t that favourable or a “neutral” in these conflicts. Therefore, he has throw a curveball to be able to wing it here.

Feltman is in battles where he cannot win and I cannot see it coming Unless, there is a sudden miracle or a moment of nostalgia … where they changes their stances and gives way. However, that happens in movies, but not in the real world. Peace.

Russian Probe: Proven collusion between Manafort and Kilimnik [and don’t be shocked, it was bound to come out eventually]

The Trump Campaign of 2016 was a house filled with Russian associates and meeting Russian individuals. They held meetings and people who are connected to Kremlin, Moscow and GRU. There was so many meetings from Trump Associates and leaders within the Trump Campaign. Therefore, the latest news from the U.S. Treasury finally let the cat out of the bag.

They are focusing on Konstantin Kilimnik who was associated and worked close with Paul Manafort and Richard Gates. These two were also parts of the Trump Campaign and Gates was also a part of the Trump Transition Team into the White House in 2016. This is why this news is important.

First I will drop the news from the U.S. Treasury. Second is some more context from U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee Report from 2020 and the third is the charges put on Manafort in 2018. This is just to prove the close connection between the fellas.

U.S. Treasury charges 2021:

Konstantin Kilimnik (Kilimnik) is a Russian and Ukrainian political consultant and known Russian Intelligence Services agent implementing influence operations on their behalf. During the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign, Kilimnik provided the Russian Intelligence Services with sensitive information on polling and campaign strategy. Additionally, Kilimnik sought to promote the narrative that Ukraine, not Russia, had interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. In 2018, Kilimnik was indicted on charges of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice regarding unregistered lobbying work. Kilimnik has also sought to assist designated former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych. At Yanukovych’s direction, Kilimnik sought to institute a plan that would return Yanukovych to power in Ukraine” (U.S. Treasury – ‘Treasury Escalates Sanctions Against the Russian Government’s Attempts to Influence U.S. Elections’ 15.04.2021).

U.S. Committee Russia Probe Report oversight into Manafort:

Paul Manafort is a former lobbyist and political consultant with ties to numerous foreign politicians and businessmen, most notably in Russia and Ukraine. In March 2016, Manafort joined the Trump Campaign as convention manager. By May 2016, then-Candidate Trump officially elevated Manafort to be the Campaign’s chairman and chief strategist. On August 19, 2016, following press articles related to his past-work in Ukraine for a pro-Russia political party headed by former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, Manafort resigned from the Trump Campaign” (…) “In numerous occasions over the course of his time on the Trump Campaign, Manafort sought to secretly share internal Campaign information with Kilimnik. Gates, who served as Manafort’ s deputy on the Campaign, aided Manafort in this effort. Manafort communicated electronically with Kilimnik and met Kilimnik in person twice while serving on the Trump Campaign. Manafort briefed Kilimnik on sensitive Campaign polling data and the Campaign’s strategy for beating Hiliary Clinton. At Manafort’s direction, Gates used an encrypted messaging application to send additional Campaign polling data to Kilimnik” (U.S. Senate Select Intelligence Report on Russian Interference in the 2016 Elections, August 2020)

Charges and Connection with Kiliminik:

““In furtherance of the scheme, from 2006 until 2014, both dates being approximate and inclusive, MANAFORT, with the assistance of Gates, KILIMNIK, and others, engaged in a multimillion dollar lobbying campaign in the United States at the direction of Yanukovych, the Party of Regions, and the Government of Ukraine. MANAFORT did so without registering and providing the disclosures required by law” (2018).

The U.S. Treasury is stating in the collusion between the Trump Campaign and Ukraine/Russian partners. As Kilimnik is in connection with Kremlin. He had worked with the Russian Friendly Political Parties in Kiev and also been supported of Moscow friendly President in the past. Therefore, giving him intel and documents of sensitive nature. This is now the reasons for why the U.S. sanctioned Russian for interference in their elections.

The reason why it’s coming out now? Well, there is no “executive privilege” anymore and ex-President Trump cannot stonewall the process or interfere in the investigation. While he and his allies did withhold documents and didn’t want to testify even. This is why the U.S. Special Counsel or Intelligence Committee could get all information of the actions made in time. As the President or his allies was interested in giving it. They tried to block or make it impossible to get to the bottom of it.

Now, there will be drip-drops of information on this. As the U.S. Treasury and other agencies might uncover more of the heinous crimes. The Trump Campaign and such never did vet Paul Manafort, but appointed him still as the Campaign Chairman. He become the second one after Cory Lewandowski. Clearly, Manafort found ways to be useful, but also profit from his time there. That he could by the connections he had in Kiev and Moscow. Which he had earned millions of dollars on in the past.

Manafort clearly helped and used this time for this and withheld this communications from the authorities. Just like he had held it a secret and not been registered as a Foreign Agent for them previously either. He clearly was interested in doing this and finds way to still make money out of it.

Manafort is pardoned by Trump, but the extent and what sort of pardon doesn’t stop new prosecution of him or new charges. They maybe taken on state level instead of federally and then he can be sentenced again. Because, he has already been a felon and could be severely punished this time around for collusion and conspiring with an enemy. That would be a serious charge and could face a long time in prison.

People cannot say that the Russian thing is a hoax, when all the evidence is there and the proof is official. The U.S. Treasury, one arm of the government is stating it and Kilimnik worked directly with Manafort. Peace.

Opinion: Papa Don is off the hook

The Second Impeachment trial in the Senate is now over after the final vote yesterday. As anticipated, the party of “rule of law” wouldn’t care about the constitution or accountability. The Republican Party vindicated their “dear leader” and “his majesty” Donald J. “Papa Don” Trump. The Republican senators saved his impeachment and acquitted him.

The Republican Senators is allowing Papa Don to incite violence and send a violent mob on the chambers of the Capitol. Where they had planned to go after the Speaker of the House, Vice-President and others to settle the score. To stop the certification of the election and overturn the election. They are all accepting that someone can order a coup d’etat and it’s cool. This is the message they are sending.

The party of “rule of law” is fine with deadly attacks. The party of “rule of law” is okay with sponsoring, helping and promoting domestic terrorism. As police officers died, injured and other civilians died. The Republican is fine that someone in power is not sending in the National Guards in time to stop and secure the lawmakers in the Capitol. That is what they said with letting Papa Don off the hook.

Yes a few Republican Senators voted for it, but not enough to get him “convicted”. That is why Trump won again. The people who did storm the Capitol. The ones who are in custody of the law will pay much more consequences for it. Then the person who actually got them there. The one who spoke, planned and made the event happen on the 6th January 2021. That says a lot of the fall of grace for the United States.

The United States Senators and especially the Republican Senators are okay with treasonous acts against the Republic. The Republican Senators is fine with people conspiring to violently overturn and take over an elected government. Because, that was the initial drive and the reasoning behind what occurred. It is not like this should be forgotten.

Papa Don have clearly broken the ideals and moral backbone of the US. They have no values anymore for so many. They rather be loyal to one man and his political aspirations. Then be following the Constitutions and the current laws. They rather risk destroying what the founders made sacred, then touching their leader. That is what they did yesterday. This is the message the Republican party is telling the world.

The Republican Party rather be loyal and supporting Papa Don, then vote to convict the man that could have ensured their last breath. Because, many of the Senators and Representatives was just minutes or even less away from being caught by the mob on the 6th January 2021. They had prepared a noose outside for possible hanging of certain individuals. Therefore, the Senators who acquitted Papa Don is clearly fine with that. They are positive to the idea of mob justice towards the ones who defies their leader.

If they really was against it and saw this an dangerous affair. They would have addressed it. These folks would have made the leader behind it and the others accountable. Especially, the same party that went after Benghazi and impeached someone over a blow-job. However, domestic terrorism and incite violence is okay when it’s one of their own doing it. Especially, if the one doing it has the party by the balls and he can swing voters their way. That is what is at stake here.

Papa Don owns the Republican Party. They are all his sycophants and “Yes-Men” will serve him by any means necessary. It doesn’t matter the cost or possible breaches of law it seems. As long as they have him behind them, everything goes. Papa Don is the personification of the Republican Party now. They are not willing to break with him or make him accountable for his actions. Only his enemies or opposition are supposed to answer for anything. That is what the world is learning. This is why Papa Don would be a perfect tin-pot dictator, but he never got the legality to become that. Though, the Republican Party would have helped him on the way, if they could.

Now that his golfing in Mar-A-Lago in Florida. His a private citizen answering other cases, which is filed in the courts. Still, we don’t know if there will sentencing or even charges on him directly. As there are investigations into his companies and transactions, his taxes and whatnot else that he has done.

Papa Don have been allowed to do whatever he wanted and still it seems that nothing can touch him. However, at one point, something got to give, but we now know its official the the GOP and the Republican Party is his. The Republican Party is his subjects and they are serving him. Nothing matters to them. Only being loyal to one man. Who knew that the party would become such a disgraceful gang of people. Nevertheless, that what power does and greed corrupts people. This is really evident. Peace.
