Nepotism103: Cutting Corners to keep the Family Close [Kushner-Ivanka Edition]

Well, over the recent day, there been news of a John Kelly of last year trying to stop the White House from giving Security Clearance to Jared Kushner, surely there would be speculations into the wife as well, Ivanka Trump, who is the daughter of the President, both who are in informal or non-specific roles in the Trump Administration. They are there, but not really there. Which makes the whole arrangement more hectic.

However, ever since winning the election, these two, the power-couple behind the President. Has lingered around him. Not that they have any expertise or knowledge in public administration. No, they are just relatives of the President and therefore, trusted counsel. They are not what you say, career civil servants nor been ideological driven to get the position they are in. It is not because of their education or their profession, they have no experience and no merits to prove their value. Therefore, only the blood-line and the relations are the reasons.

That is why it is even more striking, that the power-couple behind the President are under fire today again. Because of an issue that lasted so long. They went so long without proper security clearances. It is now proven that the President demanded the son-in-law to get the Top Secret Security Clearance, even if he could be compromised, lied about foreign communications and other forms, which is used to prove scrutiny and eligibility for security clearances in the White House. The same was done by his wife Ivanka, as she also had revise her forms and information to the officials for Security Clearance.

These two wouldn’t have gotten away with it, if they weren’t related with the President. The White House has already been in a hot mess of the Security Clearances, as there been plenty with interim security clearances and not gotten properly integrated and following protocol, as the staff is supposed to be clear and trustworthy of such. As they are keeping state secrets and ensuring the safety of the Republic. However, instead there been plenty of questionable behaviour and connections, that even the ones who was already flagged and in question got appointed with the likes of Gen. Michael Flynn.

What we have seen and read is yet another step of nepotism. Where the President has resident and ruled in favour of his family and his closest kin over the Republic. Where the President are ordering for his own sake and not for the safety of the Republic. That is why Security Clearance given to Jared Kushner is done in spite of the laws. The same can be said about the position and abilities Ivanka has too in the White House. They are there because of the President and nothing else.

This is what Tin-Pot dictators does. This is what autocrats and tyrants do, because they doesn’t trust anyone else than family. This is like the mafia and crime-families, this is not actions made by government or public administrations, which are taken serious. They would hire and appoint people of expertise and merits in the fields. Not hire family members and give them ultimate security clearances without having an official office or position in the Cabinet.

Instead, they are two internal satellites within the West Wing. Doing whatever they like, as their mission, their value to staff is bound by family loyalty and not by any ordinary function. They are not afraid of being fired or retired. The family will always take care of them. They are as thick as thieves and maybe they are. Since the investigations are following them and they have to answer for the public for the orders and the appointment of themselves. Since, it is a public administration and not a Sopranos. Feel me?

Kushner, explain yourself, why you revised your documents a million times, John Kelly didn’t advance you and later you still got clearance! Explain, also Mr. President explain that and why Ivanka got a vital role, when none is doing anything significant. Peace.

White House Sack-Race Contines: John Kelly ousted, the enabler is now blocked!

John Kelly was hired as new Chief of Staff in the Trump Administration on the 27th July 2017. He was first the Secretary of Department of Homeland Security, to become the clean-up boy within the Administration. Not that it has worked, as the man couldn’t bring stability or any sort of coherent acts together. More like another enabler of the President. That is who General Kelly will be remembered as now.

There been so many sacked or replaced in the White House since the November 2016, that the Trump Administration has a long sheet getting closer to a pamphlet. That is why this sort of sacking isn’t surprising, as he is supposed to leave by end of the year. That means by 2019, the administration will have their third Chief of Staff.

It was first Reince Priebus and now John Kelly. Whoever takes the post after these two, knows the issues within the Administration and it starts with the head. It is the Commander-In-Chief, the Executive or the President who is wasting people and using them like skittles.

I do not feel for sorry for any individual getting fired. They knew what they went into. They wanted power and get appointed to high offices. By a nonchalant and self-serving man, who has no care for anyone else, than himself. Just like is now hiring a former Fox News Hostess as the UN Ambassador after Nikki Haley. So, if he would hire someone from there wouldn’t be surprising at this point. He is having more of a game-show approach, than finding people out of merit for the positions. Even Ivanka or Kushner could get this one as he wants to keep the state in the family.

We know also now thanks to his statements what sort of man, Kelly really is, this was reported by Paul Waldman: “What all this adds up to is the insistence that immigrants are not us, and that they will never become truly American. Kelly might or might not be aware that it is precisely how his Irish ancestors were portrayed a century and a half ago, as uneducated brutes who brought nothing but crime and violence to America. Kelly is also of Italian descent; his maternal grandfather “never spoke a word of English and made his living peddling a fruit cart in East Boston,” according to an article last month in Politico. Yet he seems to have turned out okay” (…) “Finally, we should understand that while Kelly’s rhetoric might not be as inflammatory as that of the president, he has essentially the same perspective, and that perspective is now being put into action through the administration’s policies” (Paul Waldman – ‘The Plum Line – John Kelly’s terrible immigration lies’ 11.05.2018, link: https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/wp/2018/05/11/john-kellys-terrible-immigration-lies/?utm_term=.de15880d97b1).

Kelly is just following a long line of people who has shown their vicious side in the White House. Not that it is something new, but this Administration is really getting it out of people. If you want to loose your respect and people acknowledging you. Than, you are enabler who take a job at this White House. Trump will use you and take your pledges. There will be nothing left to remember or redeem, as your legacy will be stained. Just like Kelly has.

Not only has he been the General that kept Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility open and working directly to undermine the efforts of Obama to close it. He was the General in-charge of it. Therefore, we should understand, why he is such an ignorant man, whose preferences politically would be aligned with Trump. Just saying it more calmly, but having the same meaning.

We also saw his bad judgment when he described and lied about Frederica Wilson, which he did in October 2017, as he said this about her:

And a congresswoman stood up, and in the long tradition of empty barrels making the most noise, stood up there and all of that and talked about how she was instrumental in getting the funding for that building, and how she took care of her constituents because she got the money, and she just called up President Obama, and on that phone call he gave the money — the $20 million — to build the building. And she sat down, and we were stunned. Stunned that she had done it. Even for someone that is that empty a barrel, we were stunned” – John Kelly (Ledyard King – ‘Video debunks John Kelly’s claim that Frederica Wilson took credit for FBI building funds’ 20.10.2017, link: https://eu.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2017/10/20/chief-staff-kelly-falsely-accuses-rep-wilson-taking-credit-funding-fbi-building/784456001/).

So with him saying that about Congresswoman Wilson, the further reporting from Ledyard King states: “A video of the ceremony released Friday by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel shows that Wilson never took credit for getting the money, which was appropriated before she came to office. To the contrary, she gives a speech praising the FBI and the dead agents for which the building is named. She does take credit for, at the request of the FBI, rushing through in four weeks the naming of the building for the agents in time for the dedication ceremony: Benjamin P. Grogan and Jerry L. Dove” (Ledyard King – ‘Video debunks John Kelly’s claim that Frederica Wilson took credit for FBI building funds’ 20.10.2017, link: https://eu.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2017/10/20/chief-staff-kelly-falsely-accuses-rep-wilson-taking-credit-funding-fbi-building/784456001/ ).

So, we see what the Oval Office and the President does to a man. He makes them little and disgraceful, lying and not apologizing for it. He went out and attacked Wilson, but he didn’t cover his story. As it wasn’t true, he did that with an open critic of the President. As a token of loyalty attacking her, but not with truth, but empty rhetoric. Just like his boss.

Who is up next, to take the job and become another piranha for Trump? Someone who doesn’t care about their legacy and want to show their true despicable attitude for a moment of power. Because, clearly, that is what this administration does to people. It is just inevitable.

John Kelly has proven that, he was supposed to be the adult in the room, instead he was the enabler of all the madness, the insincerity and deception done by this Administration. He didn’t soften or make things better, he didn’t make it worse either. It was just more of the same, the same rhetoric, the same policies and actions, which everyone see.

Kelly cannot run away from it, he can hope people forget, but not bank on it. Peace.

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

Let’s be clear, I wrote as early as the 9th November 2016, I predicted that the United States would fail because of the newly elected President Donald J. Trump. What I wrote was a bit to true apparently. As I was worried about his demagoguery, his racists remarks and his statements in past. Therefore, a lot of it was profound and now the messages over the last two years has gotten into action.

The Zero-Tolerance Policy, the family separation, which has lead to 14,000 kids separated from their parents on the border. Where they are taken to Private Company Camps and detained until the destiny of their parents, even sometimes without the will of the parents also adopted. This is the evil of men.

The same administration has made the Muslim Ban, and banned people entering from Yemen, Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, Iran, Libya and Syria. All of these nations has been hit by this. Therefore, for the first time in a long while for the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), the President from Somalia Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed ‘Farmajo’ have not able to enter the United States with a valid visa for the UN Gathering of Head of States. That is how ill-willed the Administration has become.

While knowing this, the same government have reconfigured the NAFTA deal and given it a new name, but the purpose are still the same. What more striking in the sense of economic vision is the endless tariffs war that the Trump Administration has put forward. The realities of these will first come now and show effect. As the Steel and Aluminum was the starting point, but not the end-game. The Trump Administration has gone all out and even against his own partners, the European Union on this matter. Therefore, the industry and export production of things in the United States might be hit. Not the answer to the economy, which it needed. Just today, the General Motors are shutting down 5 factories and planning to cut 14,000 jobs. That is not the message the President promised, but with the wars on tariff and trade-war, there will casualties. It just happens to be the working class that is losing, while the President continues golfing on his estates.

What is also striking is his use of the migrant caravan from the Latin America and Central America as a brownie points. Sending down the army to the US-Mexican Border and fencing it too. Sending them down on Thanksgiving Weekend not doing any proper work. When there was raving fires in California, where they could have done something fruitful. However, these thousands of soldiers will be remembered not only for a political game, but also throwing tear-gas at innocent children and civilians, asylum seekers as the US closed their borders. This made it to a stand-off, where the Mexican authorities has also closed of their borders in retaliation. That shows the signs of the abysmal state, the United States is in. They are just senseless, ignorant, in-bread bastards who doesn’t care about the plights of the world, a world where they have interfered and destroyed. After doing so, electing an Agent Orange, the Russian Manchurian Candidate and destroy the lives of immigrants. That is what the US is doing.

It really shows how bad the Banana Republic has become, when a US Citizen, who happens to be a journalist is cut to pieces in a foreign Republic, where he visits the Embassy of the Kingdom where he is living in Exile from. There he is cut to pieces and tortured. After that, the President himself defended the Kingdom, because it is more important to trade billions of guns and ammunition. Than the lives of US Nationals who are butchered. This shows how the US are becoming a GIANT Banana Republic.

That is how Trump has made US a giant Banana Republic, that is just hearing how they defend and campaign for him on Fox News. Not forgetting how his administration is hiring lobbyist, family members, how the cronies are misusing state funds and how they are rigging elections in the midterms in Georgia and Florida. That is just all proves of how the Trump Administration is creating the biggest Banana Republic. They will surely be in the vision of Trump, where he is destroying one piece at the time. Where he is using cheap rhetoric and spinning the news, while destroying lives, taking away people’s right. Not rebuilding Puerto Rico or the other places where the floods where. The massive amount of people losing their Medicaid and medical insurance, the ones losing their jobs and the ones who are struggling, because the Republicans are working for the Multi-National Corporations. They are serving the likes of Wall-Mart and Amazon. They are not serving the public, neither the immigrants and asylum-seekers, but they are serving the elites paying the President. Just like in a Banana Republic.

That is the reality. Others didn’t want to see it, but I saw it in 2016.

That is why I end with quoting myself: “This racial laws and deportations will hurt the economy and make sure the state becomes a Banana Republic; What is special is that the United States will have a free-flow of guns, ammunition, but will make it harder to import goods and also export goods with worse deals, have lesser taxes, still high debt yield and add expenses on health-care while the citizens has to cover themselves. This while the US President hasn’t a plan to help lower-classes as the minimum-pay or salaries increase for the 80% who still get added tax, also pay more for health care. The US Electorate got all reasons for feeling foolish if they even read this” (Minbane – ‘FYI: President Trump will create a Banana Republic out of the US!’ 09.11.2016).

So congrats, Americans. You are now showing what sort of Human Rights Violations you do. Also, the world will not forget it. As you have barren Somalis from entering the United States, the US are bombing with drones more than ever there. The US supports Saudi Arabia’s filthy war in Yemen and destroy lives there. While not letting them in. The Latin American Refugees and Asylum Seekers are coming from Republics, where the US has interfered for decades.

US. Has. Become. A. Banana. Republic. And. He. Only. Needed. Two. Years. Peace.

OAS Draft Resolution: Impact on the Human Rights of Migrants of the Policy of the Government of the United States of America of Separating Migrant Families (29.06.2018)

UN Envoy Nikki Haley letter to Human Rights Watch where she defends the US right to leave the UN Human Rights Council (20.06.2018)

Opinion: President Trump deserves no credit for his new Executive Order!

What the President has done, is maybe in short-term postponing worse states of affirmative action towards the immigrants and their families. But the hurt, the uncertainty over thousands of kids, that are awaiting their destiny and the futures are still in the hand of the Republic. The machinery and the businesses are still running behind the Customs and Border Agents, the ICE agents are still rounding up people and the attacks on refugees, asylums-seekers and anyone crossing the Southern-Borders are still in affect. This sort of activity is shut-down over night. There is no time to celebrate, there is still thousands of victims.

I cannot clap for the Republic that stole the kids from the parents hands and put them into cages. I cannot proclaim joy in the government that leaves the UN Human Rights Council. I cannot say its cool what has been done and how they will continue to pursuit injustice towards innocent people trying to seek refuge. That is why the Dreamers are in limbo, if not already afraid of their demise and return to unknown destinations. That is why the kids are awaiting the moment of meeting their parents again. Some are even deported, while they are left-behind. That is the utter insult to humanity. This is a travesty and a self-made tragedy by the Trump Administration. There isn’t anything positive coming out of the Zero-Tolerance at the Southern Border to Mexico. Only pain and suffering.

When your are deemed criminal for crossing a border, when your seen as problem and an issue. Before you even speak. Your deemed as a criminal and outlaw for simply seeking refuge. You know that the country your travel to is insane. That the laws are insane, because your deemed a criminal for just existing and not done anything with criminal intent. There isn’t anything the asylum-seekers and refugees can do. They are criminal and pre-fixed into a horrific situation. There isn’t anything in their powers. They are losing their kids and their future, they are losing their homes and the destination. Nothing is left to gain.

I cannot see how the United States are earning on it either. Making more people with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, making more kids feeling hurt and traumatized, while parents are also that, while lingering in private company prison cells. Awaiting judgement for their future and hopefully be freed to see their family members again. Even if the Executive Order comes into power. It will still take time and effort to find the parents, find homes and shelters to the ones separated. This isn’t a quick fix, especially when the Republic has already sent certain parents home and their kid is left behind in the United States.

That is why this situation, this insult to humanity, this horrific and tragic affair, which was created by the Trump Administration is not a quick-fix. This a badly demonstrated of draconian laws, without consideration of the implications and neither the consequences of their actions. This is just ill judgement and the ones behind it should take the cost. They should resign and ask themselves why they promoted it and did it. Who in the hell are blatant disregard of the family, that they can with the power of the Republic take away the kids from the Parents. On the grounds that they crossed the borders, that is insane and wrong. How dare you take away the most precious and the most dear to people, their kids and not be responsible for the affair.

This is should be sanctioned, this should be costly for the United States, not just mildly rebuked or condemn. This should cost and the tab should be on the White House. Donald J. Trump aren’t a hero for signing the Executive Order yesterday. It shouldn’t be needed to do so in the first place. There isn’t anyone sane or within bounds of capacity that would ever consider that rational space of separating parents from their children. That is just a crime in itself, to take away the ones who you hold the most dare.

We have no seen to what length the Trump Administration goes and this will have affect. It will take weeks into months before this is out of bound. Because it is not just to lock the doors of these camps, the administration need to find the parents and then figure funds for travel. Later shelter to secure their return. This will be prolonged. The journey of hell for this kids are not over.

This is all thanks to evil men and woman of the Trump Administration. Peace.

Revealing some of the Companies associated with the “Zero Tolerance” Camps at the Southern Border!

You would think that the leadership and boards within miles reach of the United States border to Mexico. Would be careful or even try to avoid that their businesses is connected with the state agencies who are detaining toddlers and kids at random camps. This is done as they are taken from their parents who has fled crisis in their homeland for refuge in the United States. Clearly, the humanitarian response from the United States, is to classify everyone crossing borders as illegals by definition. Every single individual without a visa is a criminal. That is what the Trump Administration has done and with draconian fascist effort, they have taken the kids from the fleeing refugees and asylum seekers.

That is why we have to show the companies behind this. This despicable act is not done without help from companies, who has no heart and soul. Who has no issues with getting the tenders and the government funding for their operations. For them it is big-profits in sheltering kids away from their parents and make cages for the kids. They are making and earning money on the kids whose only sin was crossing the border into the United States. From there are they are pawns and useful tools for the Republican Party to get their votes and laws in other respects. They are criminalizing toddlers and kids, they are detaining and separating them. While this is happening, certain companies are helping the government doing so.

The first company helping out is Accenture, who is the agency the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency is using for hiring new Border Patrol Agents. MVM Inc is used for Operational Support and Microsoft Azure is used for Tech Services. For buses, they are using Trailboss INC. The other key companies involved are General Dynamics owned by Vanguard Group, whose has contracts with the Office for Refugee Settlements. Core Civic is a for profit prison company, who is also invested in this and Texas based company running shelters are Denenburg Development. Also providing detention and care systems are Southwest Key. All of these companies are involved in various ways for the sheltering and camps for kids. They should be remembered for that. The owners and the stakeholders should be ashamed of how they are earning their profits.

They are earning millions of dollars on the suffering of the asylum and refugee families who are separated by the will of the Trump Administration. They are vultures whose sole mission is to earn funds on other people’s tears and sufferings. This should make them ashamed and make them reconsider. Because these companies will be associated with this crimes against humanity. Where parents are not knowing when they are seeing their kids again. These companies are helping the Trump Administration to do these evil deeds.

They should look into what they do and should also stop making it possible. The American consumers and other companies should boycott these. These companies should be put on lists not to interact with. They are helping kids being separated from parents. That is wrong everywhere, except in the crazy minds of the Republican Party. Peace.

The Shameful Era is here: The US is devaluing human beings for crossing their borders!

It is a disgrace, it’s a sad reality, where the Attorney General Jeff Sessions and President Donald J. Trump. All of the current day administration is separating kids from their parents for the sole purpose of showing themselves as a sovereign nations. It is insult to all families world-wide, it is in an insult to humanity itself. This is a disgrace.

The former place of freedom and liberty, is now gone, the place for human rights and for liberty itself. Is history, the reflection of beacon of hope is gone in the whirlwind of oppression and despicable leadership. The American Government, the United States of America cannot be trusted. Because they take the weakest and kick them while their down. They take the kids away from their parents.

They are initially saying anyone who comes to the borders are illegal upon entry. Everyone is a criminal and deserves to be punished to arrive in the United States. Therefore, there shouldn’t be anyone who travels to the US for their vacations. Neither, anyone educated shouldn’t travel there to use their brains to develop this country. Everyone should flee from the United States. No one should go there.

No person deserve this prejudged treatment. None. Nobody. It is inappropriate to take the kids from the parents. Instead of shielding them, they are taking them to camps and separating them. They are like thieves and hawks, they are determined to destroy and inflict harm on the weakest of the weak, the innocent child. They use the bible and laws, which are to entail harm on the innocent. Its distasteful and disgrace.

The world should suspend all activity in the United Nations Headquarter and ask for removal of it. To another nation, where they actually values families and the hardships of Latin American people. Where the world can look up to and know that immigrants and refugees will be safe in. Because in the United States. They are as horrific as in war-zones, even worse because they do it deliberately with knowledge of the pains it causes.

It is evil, it is evil to take away toddlers away from the parents and not knowing when they meet again. To make them sleep on floors and in cages. They are not circus animals, they are brothers and sisters of the Human God-Damn RACE. They are human beings like you and me. Just born into this devilish world of Republic draconian affairs. They didn’t ask for this and the parents flee crisis, droughts, militias and instability in their countries for refugees. Instead, they get more violence and more trouble for the possible redemption of life.

The United States should know better, but with Trump and Sessions at the helm. They really brought the Shameful Era. They have done it with passion and with no heart, they don’t consider the Latin American’s immigrating.

We cannot look up to the US for hope or any sort positive message, because they only comes with bombs, grenades and hatred for the human race. There is only shame and despicable activity from the Trump Administration. They have no common sense, no heart or no soul of any kind. They are heatless vessels of despots and tin-pot judgements, that shouldn’t be in our time. However, sadly it is.

No parent should be separated from their kid, no state should do this. None. Peace.

The White House Sack-Race Continues: Secretary of State Tillerson sacked, because Trump is a ‘moron’!

The former Exxon-Mobile CEO and Russian Friendly Businessman Rex Tillerson was lucky enough to have 13 months as the Secretary of State. The Secretary of State had just left from meeting with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta before his supposed travel to Western Africa and Sahel Region for the Security issues there, as well as the partner-states of the AFRICOM there. After visiting, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Kenya. Clearly, the Secretary never got the chance.

Not like the White House in this day and age, that people expect to have the positions for long. This is just over 30th people who has left the West Wing since January 2017. The turnover rate of appointed officials is huge and insane. But that is the way the stable genius works apparently. I was skeptic to the appointment of him, he seemed like the guy to circumvent the sanctions and be able to bring Exxon-Mobile and Gazproom into business. To make sure the oil dealing could happen.

While the big-shot Rex Tillerson was fired, the same happen to the President’s own assistant John McEntee, who was escorted out. Together with the resignation of Communication Director Hope Hicks and Chief Economic Financial Advisor Gary Cohn. The last few days has been brutal in regards to staff. This is just a little group of the people who has left the building. The stability of the administration is such a pale state, you would be worried if a I-Hop would lose this much of staff and had to recruit and train. You would be worried as a costumer if you knew the turnover at the particular shop was this big.

Tillerson, a man of 13 months, what did he do? Other than getting ridicule and being mocked by the President. This happens hours after he was in Kenya, but also after commenting on the spy-scandal in the United Kingdom. Where Tillerson said the Russians was involved in the poisoning of the spy. This is something that was countering the White House. Because the White House will not directly blame the Russians. Hence, since Tillerson went outside his safe space, he now lost his job. That is how it looks like.

Somehow, when writing about the White House, the Russian involvement always come snickering out of the wood-works, or in the sense of the Trump Administration. Out of the Tanning machine on the second floor. Tillerson was unaware of the firing, just like former FBI director James Comey was, as he was in Los Angeles for function of some kind. Now Tillerson came home early to Washington, since he canceled parts of his Africa trip. Clearly, the pressing issues was there, but he couldn’t solve it or Trump had cheerios on his mind.

What we do know, he has somebody to exchange him with CIA’s Mike Pompeo. One of his favorites. We will wonder how long he will in Trump’s graces, since fires and hires willi-nilly and isn’t hesitating.

Tillerson didn’t deliver for his former oil-company, you can wonder what he has achieved. Since the State Department hasn’t hired the needed staff in many regions. Therefore, not getting the knowledge or relationships needed to deliver the program of the staff there. But we are forgetting, in the Trump Administration, it is only Trump that matters. Not the state, nothing else. Making America Going Apeshit. That is what is happening.

Know that the Trump administration has no currently functioning State Department. They have a new head, but he will be clueless for while. Not like after 13 months Tillerson achieved anything. The reason is Trump and the leadership he has, with is praising his ego and nothing else. Peace.

Most likely offending the Don with this statement, aye?

InfoWars is sued for Copyright Infringement for using Pepe the Frog!

The infamous media-house, syndicated right-wing conspiracy wheeling machine of a so-called news-organization, called the InfoWars with Alex Jones as their head. He is now sued by the cartoonist behind Pepe the Frog. The one behind it is the artist Matt Furie, who has made a famous meme and also copyrighted the rights of usage of the Pepe the Frog. It is within that bound that the artist and his lawyers has sued Infowars.

InfoWars has made a poster with the frog together with Donald Trump, Milo Yiannopolous, Roger Stone and also Ann Coulter. With the slogan on “Make America Great Again”. The slogan of Trump during his campaign. That everyone knows and isn’t that strange for a right-wing page to sell posters with that, but what is special is that in the midst of this they have put Pepe the Frog in red. This poster was sold for $ 17.76 each, meaning that InfoWars are earning money on other people’s craft, because even other hatred groups have been using the frog, as they wanted to make it as sign of being deplorable’s.

Even the Alt-Right hate group write this on their page about the cartoon: “Pepe the Frog is a cartoon character that has become a popular Internet meme (often referred to as the “sad frog meme” by people unfamiliar with the name of the character). The character first appeared in 2005 in the on-line cartoon Boy’s Club” (Anti-Defamation League). So clearly, the hatred and the usage of it, has spiraled to a level where the groups who Furie doesn’t associate with are using his craft in their missions.

Therefore, because of that, even Alex Jones picked it up and started selling it on his online-shop, who sells anything to trade some ill-gotten gains to his media-house. So InfoWars is one of many, who has misused the cartoon in their propaganda and their internet trolling of people. They are now throwing shade on Furie, even Jones has said its fraudulent today on his show. That is because he cannot stomach to pay damages and stand for decision to trade posters with the cartoon on.

The ironic thing, is that no-one has asked permission or the usage of it, and these groups who hasn’t asked to use the cartoon. The publishing and the use of it in a form and messages that counters the artist believe, political stance or even decency. Anyone want to avoid that and Furie is right to fight for his craft, in court and in public. So his cartoon isn’t becoming racist, but a public joy and fun cartoon.

Instead, it is misused in the wrong narrative, we can hope the Court let the artist win the case and let InfoWars pay for damages, so Furie can continue to sue people misusing his cartoon without permission in the near future. So, that is can be associated with other people, than the ones who are White Supremacists and the racists of America.

It seems little and not so important, but the artist and his rights should be hold, he should get this and bag-it, just for the sense of his rights to decide where his craft goes and who can use it for profit. That is natural. That is ordinary.

InfoWars, like ADL, never asked and just using it in their favor. Not considering the implication of the creator or the ones who made the cartoon. That is something they should have and Furie has the right to sue them. So he can get his cartoon back and get it within the will of the creator. Who then decides who is allowed to trade and to publish the cartoon.

Pepe the Frog, might seem like just another meme, but this here is serious. Peace.
