Opinion: The Council to Re-Open America is a mix of nepotism, patronage and cronyism all-in-one

There been leaks on the Officials on the Council to Re-Open America. The White House, the Trump Administration new strategic group to ensure a safeguarding the opening of the market. Opening of the Republic after lockdowns, stay-at-home-orders and whatnot. However, the promise of a expert filled and promising team of individuals are something you have to look far after.

First is the appointments of the cronies, the family members with no unique talents or skills. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner. They are playing government and looking for the next pay-check.

Than you have Wilbur Ross, Larry Kudlow, Steve Mnuchin and Robert Lightizer, whose the money-team of the Administration. Their only concern is the market and how the economy is working. These individuals wouldn’t care if the streets was filled bodies and in a originalities state. There could be blood on the streets and vampires at night. As long as the bloodsucker’s at Wall Street and Corporate America is pocketing the mighty dollars. They wouldn’t care one minute of the toils, the depression or the devastations the citizens are going through. What matters is the bottom-line and eventual profit margins for the high and mighty.

Last person on this Council is the fourth Chief of Staff in the White House Mark Meadows, whose the right voice in the White House and Republican. Who has voted blindly for the views and for Team Trump in the House of Representatives. That is why his the man of the moment and gets appointed to this Council as well.

When people say the United States government right now is run like a Banana Republic and failed state. This sort of Council proves it. It is cronyism, patronage and nepotism blended into one Council. None of this men are qualified to follow any metrics of the pandemic. They have no education or nor skill in Health Care. This are not PHD in medics or anything. This is are economists, hawks and patrons of the President. That is why the advice these people give will be based on profits and possible kickbacks. Not, if it is wise to open the floodgates or not.

This is the proof of how mismanaged and rotten DC is at the moment. As Ivanka and Jared will be part of a team, whose sole objective is find excuses to re-open United States. To find solutions and ways to get the states to stop their lockdowns and stay-home orders. Since, this is the initial plan. To figure out a way to solve the crisis and reconfigure the failing economy. The unemployment and the rising poverty. Which is caused by the closure, the pandemic and the lack of proper planning ahead of the crisis. That is a screw-up, this administration did all on it s own and now the same cadres supposed to issue attempts to change that.

The governors has put these orders in place and are following state rules doing so. They are doing it by all means to stagger the COVID-19 by all means they have. While the White House has acted as a cheerleader, back-up and not as Federal Government. They have been on the back-burner. However, when it comes to financial objectives, not the health of its citizens. Then they suddenly want to act like a Federal Body and have a Council who put in place needed advice and guidelines for the state. Which is rich, as they are back-up and have their own stockpile, which is not for the states.

We have learned a lot since January 2020 about the lack of preparation, not taking warnings. Not acting rational. Not following advice and dismantling Obama’s Pandemic Team within the White House, because everything Obama gives Trump the Heebie-jeebies and therefore, he got shut it down.

We are now seeing the team of nepotism, patronage and cronyism in full effect. Don’t expect magic, don’t expect any results and only more hurt. These people are all there for the praise and glory of the President. Also for another pay-check, but that is it. Peace.

Trump-Ukraine: Sen. Ron Wyden letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (11.02.2020)

Trump-Ukraine: Statement by Ambassador David Pressman, Partner at Boles Schiller Flexner LLP, counsel to LTC Alexander Vindman (07.02.2020)

There are now two things the Unites States can stop doing after acquitting President Trump!

The United States of America and their government, the Trump Administration and everyone involved. Can stop two things now. Because, it will not be sincere since they are not caring about these values at home.

The US Government cannot complain if a President elsewhere is misusing their powers or abusing the office for personal gain. As the Republican Party and their allies. Since they acquitted President Donald J. Trump on misuse of power yesterday. Also, the obstruction of Congress. Both articles he was acquitted off.

This gives the world a view into how the US Government lacks self-awareness, as USAID and other agencies are supposed to teach governance, rule of law and democracy. As the Senate shown the world, that it doesn’t matter internally.

That the Trump administration is the most corrupt in living memory. Using the Presidency to earn currency on all his businesses, that he spends half of his time on own properties and let state safety organizations paying for lodging. That the Trump Administration are getting lobbyist and corporate sponsors into committee’s and appointed positions to control and self govern their own respective fields.

While the Trump administration openly says arms trade, secret inside dealings and whatnot, can buy that foreign affairs polices. Instead of actually having any sense of the matters. That’s why the Trump administration and the US cannot teach anyone anything with consideration to their own conscience.

The US is now a corrupted, flawed, in-bread system, where the in-laws and family members of the President plays footie with the White House. Where Jared Kushner plays mediator and diplomat, while the Ivanka Trump tries to act like a secretary. Secretary Mike Pompeo tries to act holy, but is not accountable just like his boss.

This Presidency speaks loud, but acts vile. The attempts to get transparency in the Ukraine dealings proves the extortion and the abuse of office. The GOP wouldn’t give way. The Senate who acquitted him, didn’t even call upon witnesses nor get any more production of evidence. As the White House has stonewalled that from the get-go. That is common knowledge, as all production there comes through FOIA and the ones daring to use that for more information. Because, its not like the President nor his cabinet are willingly delegating the documents of any subpoena. We seen that over time.

With this in mind. The world knows the ills of the Trump administration. The acts, where the President can be as corrupted as he wants. Where there is no checks- and balances on his power. He can misuse and abuse his office. There is no legal ramification of his actions. Therefore, if the US bitch about actions of others.

They better first clean up their act at home. That is the mere reality of it all. That the impeachment was without value. They didn’t even try to do it properly and covering it up instead. That’s the act of a rouge government, not an open and transparent one. Which they always ask of the rest of the world to be. They are insincere with their actions and they should clean their own steps, before asking others to pass through.

Why the world cares about these values, when Washington D.C. and the ones governing there would care a single cent about it? Why does the world need to act accountable and get lessons learned by the Americans, when they clearly don’t give a flying fuck themselves?

If they cared about rule of law, be against abuse of office and corruption. They would have handled it differently, but its all mere talk. Unless, its about themselves and then they got to deal with it. Which they clearly will not do. Because, the royal highness has a bunch of loyal yes men in the Capitol and they are all kissing his ring. Peace.

Opinion: Trump wants a White AmeriKKKa

In 2017 the Trump Administration banned 7 countries and their citizens from immigrating to the United States. After a while, one of them got dropped, but the rest still persisted. This being Yemen, Somalia, Iran, Libya, Sudan and Syria. From these week again Sudan was targeted after been released for a little while. While they have now added Burma (Myanmar), Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Sudan, and Tanzania.

We can see what type of countries the Trump Presidency picks. However, what is more outrages about a few, is where the United States has bombed the places to pieces and still they will help the ones in need. This being Libya, Somalia and Yemen. The first ban of 2017 was called the Muslim ban. Now, people don’t even flinch.

The Trump Administration might talk security and their own sovereign safety. But, we can all bullshit on that one. Trump is only doing this to Whiten the population and stall more people to enter. Just like with the recent stop of birth-tourism ban too. It all follows a pattern. Where the certain type of people is picked out and they are barred from entering.

President Trump is the man of the Klan. His the man of the White Supremacist. Picking out Sudan again, taking Tanzania, Nigeria and Eritrea. While also stopping Burma (Myanmar) where the genocide on a Muslim is going on. Clearly, the US tries stifle them from entering, because they are from the “wrong” nations. That is the initial drive.

It is not about the capacities of people, this is not about education standards or anything else. This is a precondition of where they have resided and statehood before entering the Republic. Than, you know the credentials are quit clear. That its only set-up like this because of their colour and ethnicity.

Trump Presidency can play that off and act a fool. This is clearly aimed at firing up the base and lifting their spirit ahead of the elections. That is all, by also closing the borders for yet another group of nationalities. Which is very simple by just another Executive Order. Because, its not like he could have pulled this one through Congress. The President knows that, as he cannot govern like a President should.

The suspension and limitation is striking. The aim is there and the ones denying that is either naive, if not they are part of the Klan themselves. That is just the way it is.

We all know the drill. This is a tool for re-election. Nothing else, a racist motivated targeted, using migration and immigrants as a pawn in the game for a populistic approach. Nothing else. Which the President has done all along. With his child-separation at the Southern Border and so-on. There is nothing human about these policies, only a cynic racist motivated approach to win the white supremacy base in the United States.

The extreme Alt-Right, which combined with the far-right evangelicals doesn’t care that they are electing a crook and drifter at the White House. As long as they are getting a few of their songs played on the radio, now and then. Peace.

Trump-Ukraine: The Senate killed the impeachment articles

There was no trial, was no real courtship in this manner. Because, if there would be. There would need to more needing factors, which was non-existent in this manner. There was no new witnesses called into question and neither any production of documents. Meaning, there was no discovery nor search for evidence, which could either proven innocent nor determined the guilt of the President.

However, the Republican Party and their Senators has been more inclined to spend time spreading conspiracy theories, than having an actual trial. Instead of looking into the merits, the declining and disregarding White House. Whose used of “Executive Privilege” have stopped witnesses from appearing the in House and now in the Senate. The same with the production of papers and answering to House subpoena’s. It is not like the fairness nor the quality of proceedings was ever there.

What is known is the misuse of office, abuse of the role of the President and extorting the Ukrainian President for favours in own election in 2020. That the Republic Party doesn’t want to take down their own at this point was expected. But that they didn’t even wanted to try him properly. Really show their insincere and lack of respect of rule of law. These men are lawmakers who cannot even care to follow statutes, limitations nor think of the consequences of letting a corrupt President off the hook.

The final resolution which is leaked to the Press from Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is just a testament to the closure and lack of will to the right thing. This is acquitting the President without even trying him. They didn’t even conceal it or forge anything. They just let him off the hook. So, he can do another crooked thing another day.

The Republican Party and its SENATORS can never ever, in their mind or spirit. Speak of the value of the Constitution nor the Rule of Law. Laws doesn’t matter to them. There is nobody equal under laws. As long as the President is above and doesn’t have to answer for it. As long as he doesn’t have to produce documents, answer in a trial or even get witnesses to testify on his behalf. While the Senator did coordinate this directly with the Presidency.

You just know it is crooked, when the ones overseeing the trial is speaking to the one whose charged with a possible crime. You just know its wrong, when they are letting the man peddle his vision and his way of clearing the slate. That is why there is nothing done and its all a cover-up.

This is disgraceful and a disregard. The United States is not a state for moral supremacy nor speaking of fear justice any more. You cannot trust the US Senate nor its legislators to do fare judgement. When they are all corrupted and loyal to one man above the law. The king is here, salute. The Kings is here. Salute! Peace.

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.
