Opinion: Tired of certain types of Politicians who are snake-oil salesmen with their political speeches and writings!

Camus-2_wide-d6b66c229f4fffa53120bcad9534adff8b9b27d1-s900-c85

“Every time I hear a political speech or I read those of our leaders, I am horrified at having, for years, heard nothing which sounded human. It is always the same words telling the same lies. And the fact that men accept this, that the people’s anger has not destroyed these hollow clowns, strikes me as proof that men attribute no importance to the way they are governed; that they gamble – yes, gamble – with a whole part of their life and their so called ‘vital interests.”

Albert Camus

It already decades since Albert Camus graced this blue earth with more water than soil, still his words could be used today and his wisdom is still able to question our leaders of today. The resembling manner and tone, the bristling and blatant words that is still has the sharpness of a blade and cut into the bone.

Why? Why can it cut because the manners of politicians decades ago, seemingly is the same today. As the lies and deceit hasn’t left the politics. Neither has the foul play to gain power instead of serving the public. In general theory the Local Council Members, State Representatives, Governors, Senators, Members of Parliament (MPs) and the Executives are supposed to honour their pledges and be accountable to their caucus, constituency or district. Instead they are more loyal to their own careers than serving their voters. So often feels like a broken bridge between the public, the voters and the representative.

The bridge as they only appear right before the die is cast, sorry, the voters has to cast their ballot or polls as their job is on the line; their legitimacy and their relations has to be kept in upkeep as the liability towards the public sphere is important to promise and pledge to fix housing, roads, hospitals, civic education and save the kids. If not they will save the nation or district from biblical disasters, terrorists and unknown dangers.

We have all heard it and know the clichés and the artificial blend of phrases in a rhetorical manner, especially in a coded manner that could fence the xenophobia, the fear and the destructive tone. Some uses the coded language not to promise or really say that they will build the bridge or fix the schools; more that they see the effort and will stay strong together with the politician and his ruling regime.

election-campaign-speech-8551266

Still, we accept this for the faith that the fake and lively attitude to collect the votes from us. The reality is that the lies and fakes to satisfy the play of guards and the sovereign measures of needed institutions to control and have oversight of the state. We should still ask questions to the needed for the lies in speeches and care as the politicians rather spend their time with family, than cutting bonds on roads in the province of nowhere with a local mayor who hate the guts of the Infrastructure Minister who feels betrayed by the locals as they wouldn’t vote for his party if their lives dependent on it.

The seasoned man, who has been in rain have made you wet, who has been in the sun has gotten burned. The measures men does to secure itself with umbrellas and jacket to keep each other dry, the same with sun-cream and others to keep the skin-away from the burning sun. Therefore the men who does so should also be able to pick away the men and woman who lies for their trade.

The quack-sellers and the snake-oil salesmen are in the trades of the Politics. Therefore some politicians earn coinage on their pivoting, their change of heart and their tricks to always stay in the good graces. But this is the not the men of solitude or the men of honour or trustworthy. You never know what they really stand for or what their ethical background as their choices are more a popularity contest of American Idol or Big Brother than of politics.

That is the reason why men like Nigel Farage, Donald J. Trump or other rascals with very little soul for their initial policies or political framework can get space in the political landscape as our tabloid headline dramatics can give space and airtime on radio and TV for their message. The message creates high ratings and secures advertisement monies to the Media Houses who couldn’t care less about the outcome of an election as they are there for profits; not for the common-good or service delivery of the politicians.

So we are at the time of day where the words of Albert Camus are righteous as the politicians are not telling about secret meetings, keeping the main objectives between the government funding, the multi-national companies and the trade-agreements; also with the bilateral agreements between nations and international organizations that are happening between the closed doors and is why the dossiers through whistle-blower’s are hurting the campaigns and the national security. But most likely also destroying the façade the politicians create and their level of PR expertise and also beholden to the laws they are supposed to keep.

The mentality of this together with the double-edged swords of public perception can cross through the flesh and destroys careers of an ordinary politician as the sexual adventures of Dominic Strauss-Kahn (DSK), but a few blunders haven’t stopped the Republican Nominee Trump. But at these times the lies and fakery seems to let him win over the American nation, instead of them repelling from his words.

So the political speech should be coded and with current words that express the views and place in the political landscape. Still, today there are more worrying signs of the way it is portrayed and accepted as the men behind the words are not stopped or feasible destroy the character not give the politician the space on the mainstream media.

This should be a worrying and not be a place our modern society should be in, where we let stone-age rhetoric and hatred towards fellow humans beings get away with their malicious attempts of gripping power by the teleprompter and by the social media machine of the political parties and the PR experts supporting the Politicians. Therefore the Citizens Kane of the world usually gets discredited on their way to public office, but now it is free-for-all.

citizenkane

Just like Citizen Kane as Charles Foster Kane in his final speech in his campaign for becoming Governor of New York:

“It is no secret that I entered upon this campaign with no thought. That I could be elected Governor of this state!  It is now no secret that every straw vote, every independent pole, shows that I will be elected. And I repeat to you – my first official act as Governor will be to appoint a special District Attorney to arrange for the indictment, prosecution and conviction of Boss Edward G. Rogers!” (Citizen Kane, 1941).

Other Politicians of these days are convicting fellow politicians without trials as a political gain and earn coinage on their bad moral. This is their moral and bad judgement that deserves to be punished with conviction and getting on trial through going courtside for their acts and activity. So with this in mind, the lying political speeches and does it with vital interest of the public sphere.

Main question after this triad from me; why should we accept his behaviour and accept these men leading us without any real discredit or any real consequence for the politician? This is what the society gets together with the public who is eating the bullshit from the politicians. But, that isn’t it, right? Peace.

Opinion: Trump can promise roses, but that will still not be the truth!

Trump broken flag

There are these days when I wonder when people will see what I see, as I see a fraudster, a liar and charlatan who has used his name to trade on misfortune of American citizens, both in Businesses and now in Politics. Now he promises jobs and tighter borders, giant walls and more xenophobia and fear of the ones migrating to the American Nation. That is the state of affairs that Trump promises; while also glorifying himself as a Demi-God.

That is why he hates to be questioned and even mentioned in a sinister way, even if it is true. As he congratulates himself and believe that killing families creating genocide is the way of making sure the Syrian civil war will be settled. This from the man who imports all kind of crap in his own name, while saying that American business is screwed by the Chinese and Mexicans; as he himself is earning money on branded goods from the same destinations.

So the man who now chosen another controversial VP Mike Pence, the current Governor of Indiana, who has become famous for establishing very harsh regulation on births and rights for abortion in his state, while also in his one-time governorship he even created more controversy with regulating stronger LGBT rights and their freedoms in public spaces as toilets and such, which have already been under-fire in other states. So the man that carries the water and makes sure the hair is straight of Trump has some dark horses in his home-run. The ironic part is that GOP or Republican Party can finally have candidate in Indiana that might beat the Democratic Party nominee in coming election. That should been a consideration while vetting the man behind Trump, but he picks from his guts; not his wits!

Trump John Barron

Trump promise the most beautiful and wonderful piece of everything, depending on the crowd and the state, higher lowest-minimum wage or polices for trade. They are shallow words and proving the insecure man that he is. The vain and simplistic, as he still in July 2016, ever since running for over a year, still hasn’t released his Tax-Returns; because he doesn’t have the character to drop his true value or his pocket-change as the reveling truth would show that he is not as rich as he claims or narrowly near the billions that supposed be there. If that we’re so he wouldn’t need to beg Koch brothers or go on ferrying for donor funding instead of campaigning in swing-states!

The whole ordeal, the whole empty pledges the smearing and rubbish throwing against both opponents in own party and everybody else in general; while praising dictators like Gaddafi, Kim Yung-Un and Vladimir Putin; claiming that America Nation and Economics is in shambles, blaming media for being biased while speaking like Fox News anchor on steroids. He could be dancing over the Media’s, that have been banned from following the campaign trail; which means a dozen media-houses for writing what he would call spiteful articles or portrait on screen.

So for me as European it is weird that he is even considered, with his track-record and scams are getting away from becoming a Nominee in General Party towards a General Election, while he has the balls to pick a VP that is Midwestern prototype of himself, just more clean and speaks the ordinary coded political language, instead of the bashing guts without any common knowledge the Donald!

Trump Team

But this is just my two-cents and I have described the man before, as Paul Manafort who got Corey Lewandowski fired and traded space to speak astonishingly about the efforts of Trump. Manafort is the key player in the Campaign Team behind Trump, he must know it’s a fools race right now and therefore taking his bet behind a narcissist who has no quarrels except for his own gains. So the real political place of the man is like balancing a donut over a tornado. The one day he might be Pro Trade-Zones and the next day lenient taxes instead to gain business.

So the pledges and promises are as shallow of the character of Trump, the fake and weak-tea that he offers shouldn’t be taken for the gold-covered label he uses on his company and walls of his Twinkie-Tower in the Rotten Apple. We can surely know that the America that we heard about as kids is gone, like wave it will come and go apparently. The land of liberty and equality must been torn to pieces to accept the candidature of a man of this stature. The land of tolerance and melting-pot must be drowned in redneck bashing KKK nonsense, instead of the Boondocks cartoons and Dave Chappell skits. This must be the reality as ‘Friends’ and ‘Seinfeld’ has stopped making more sitcom episodes, instead some other random crap made by Netflix and HBO.

So the world cannot be same… as the world is seeing the ability and possibility for a candidate like Trump, for a man with the world-view and rhetoric being capable of thrashing both seasoned and ambitions politicians with loyalties inside the Grand Old Party (GOP). Certainly the roses he promises are more old sour croutons instead. Peace.   

Opinion: Why I don’t care about the VP pick in this US Presidential Election!

trumpclinton2

Let me be blunt, let me be clear I don’t really care about who Democratic Presumptive Nominee Hillary R. Clinton picks as her running mate, as the race was establishment and Wall Street money versus a real-contender with some ethical and positive stances in Bernie Sanders. Let me clear, I don’t care about the vetting process for the Republic Presumptive Nominee Donald J. Trump. Donald Trump is arrogant narcissist who hates everything he doesn’t understand and is racist, even if his campaign team isn’t meant to be interpreted that way or the policy on the Muslim foreign ban isn’t in stone, the picture of a xenophobic wall-building charlatan, is something the Republic nominee is and acts like. Therefore whoever he picks have to stand by these principals, have to support and trade the water that Trump carries and keep up with the inaccurate statements blurring like a bad radio signal.

If Hillary Clinton picks Elisabeth Warren, it will be a double woman ticket and some-what a progressive that even The Young Turks (TYT) admire a little bit, but if she has the character to sustain the cash-strapped Democratic National Party and their function built around Clinton money, is surely questionable, if she would pick somebody else, what would it matter? Who really rallied behind Obama, because of Joe Biden? Really did anybody do that? Did any cold-blooded American in 2008 run behind and vote Obama, Barrack Hussain Obama becomes of the calm and tidy Honorable Joe Biden?

Trump broken flag

Let, me take the other main candidate Donald Trump, the man who is vetting actual candidates from the New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who been used a bad substitute after he dropped from the Presidential race earlier in the Election Road Map, he has run the state of New Jersey, but his controversial style and charisma might be what Trump needs, but he does speak a lot for himself and hug the spotlight; something that a self-centered son-of-bitch doesn’t want to see. Mike Pence is some kind of a Indiana Governor and former lawyer, he is the likely man behind him. The man who promised a better Indiana and wanted for re-election as Governor in 2016; that will not happen if the goes behind Trump, than he has to trade his ethics for a possible VP choice. Another wild-card of a man is the former New Hampshire Senator Scott Brown, who in June asked Elizabeth Warren to be DNA tested for her native-Indian heritage, he sounds like the perfect running mate, as he runs in the same “moderate” circles of Trump and believes in the same kind of non-sense. As he want to be a political gamble and likely running mate, as they both have crazy sides and doesn’t have issues with bending public opinion or reality in their quest for power.

The Reason why I write this, is that the VP is a safe-bet from the Presidential Nominee, to either gain respectable position, clear the air in a fragmented Senate or Congress, while also tender to the public the Nominee doesn’t have grounds in, therefore if Hillary want’s to gain the excited, strangely unknown youths who got energized by the Sanders campaign; she should pick somebody who ignites these ones and not fear the Republican and Conservative votes. While the Trump who has battled and battled all kind of stereotypical political landscape with more rants than angry football coaches after a losing match. The Trump can either choose a man of character, a man of honor and a man who actually tender the public in another way then himself. But, he wouldn’t because that would make him look bad, that would be like a sequel actual being better than the original; that is a unlike scenario; this with the context of somebody of a man who has upset the whole staged republican party and has abolished many of the established candidates, together with stopping the funding of Presidential Nominee from the Koch brothers, as even companies are not funding the RNC convention in Cleveland this year, as it is supposed to start the Presidential Campaign for the Nominee of the Party.

McCain Palin 1130

So the questions seems to be a bit far fetch, nobody can do a worse pick that John McCain did in 2008 and picked Sarah Palin, the talking wonder from Alaska, who proves that some persons on this blue-earth does need drugs to talk out of whack. She is the epitome of bad pick. It was a wild-card and even if he tried the Woman for VP, it didn’t strike anything against the force of Barrack Obama as he proved the campaign of “Change” after long years of George W. Bush. Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan, the Koch infused Politician and the youthful character… Not that people remember that in 2012, that he did chose him as the man behind his back, as he later became the Speaker of the House in 2015. The savviness of Romney came to weakness of his character and still “Hope” from Obama. Therefore even with a wise choice and clear political aspiration of Ryan, didn’t help Romney a smidge.

That is why we shouldn’t focus much on the VP, the Vice-President is the hand-man and the saving grace for the President, the Head of State’s water carrier, if he was a Hip Hop Artist he would be his Spliff-man. Not that the man, is famous for doing much, just not let the President be caught or act a fool. Therefore the Spliff-man get caught with the spliff(weed) and serve time, while the artist continues to tour; as the money and service rendered will be repaid in full when his time behind is over. The same is with a VP, they can either step down or run themselves as a hopeful candidates. Biden could have run if he wanted, though gone against O’Malley, Sanders and Clinton. Though his name rings and synonymous with Obama, he still might have carried his own. The time will tell if he would have been a better Presidential Nominee than Clinton for the Democratic Party.

What is surely true, how much does the VP question really matters? They are practically spliff-men for the President and not the man in charge, unless the Chief is on a Foreign Trip or other unexpected is happening to the Executive. Peace.

Opinion: Why I don’t like Donald Trump or “Domhnall Iain” as I explain why I hope the Americans elect somebody else.

donald-trump-make-america-great

I know many people would be more diplomatic, I will not because of his attitude and unpolished behaviour of little spoiled brat instead of serious politician. The Donald is a mess of man, the tanned gleeful asshole who has no heart or soul to speak off. He attacks anybody and only close to people when they are useful and if they start to dwindle he leave you be. Loyalty is only important as long as he can earn on it.

Trumps family that have roots on the island of Lewis on the coast of Scotland, where many have nicknamed him “Domhnall Iain”, which isn’t given to honour the man, instead to mark disgust with him. He can swallow spit and attack as much has he wants, we in Europe, except for the Ultra-Nationalist and the Right-Wing xenophobic politicians and supporters enjoy watching the madness called Trump.

That is because a man like Trump is living on fear, which the economic prosperity of United States is in tatters, even if the figures are saying otherwise. Since the downturned is stabilized, even if isn’t resurrection of old-industry like automobile in Detroit or Flint in Michigan state. There is more stable and the percentage is more stable since the house-bubble, but saying that is like fairy-tale for the Republicans. Well, Trump knows all about being saved in the midst of debt, that why he prides himself being a “King of Debt”, that because of the failures of Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts Inc , Trump Shuttle, GoTrump.com, Trump University, Trump Vodka, Trump Magazine, Trump World Magazine, Trump Steaks, The Trump Network and Trump Mortgage Company LLC. All of these well planned companies was run to the ground; reason why the name is more important than the product, since he earns more on license his name than delivering anything worth a buck.

Trump Univision Letter

When you comes with lies upon lies, when you claim to be such a splendid businessman, but have such amount of failed businesses. You have then the opportunity to question his savvy on it, even if the Trump Organization have a dozen businesses under it and have buildings to its name. That does not save his face, his face that lies more then it speaks the truth.

What I dislike is not how he flip-flops, even if he worse than well-seasoned politicians, flip-flopping is natural in politics. It’s the lies and claims the believing in conspiracy and acting like he can do wrong, but somebody does the same he blast them. He was attacking John McCain for being taken hostage in war, while he we’re partying the hell of out of his money. He speaks of balls, but never had the balls himself to go into the army or to war to serve his country. Still, he has the arrogance and diligence to address them like wankers! He should be more subtle, but that isn’t in his character, because he isn’t wise enough or has enough tact.

Trump John Barron

He can deceive and sell the soul of the Republican Party that has wished for his candidacy for so long that they didn’t even know it. The racist, xenophobia and the hatred for everything that does not fit the Christian Conservative values that are key parts of the RNC; they wanted a man who wasn’t cold blooded politician, who was gun-loving and free-speaking son of bitch. Though wished that he wasn’t married three times and coming with New York values. And also have the history buying the Democratic votes to fix his buildings.

Trump is a man who I despise, because of what he really stand for and how he is defended. When people says he isn’t really racist… I am just looking and wondering, why didn’t he ask to get longer away from the former KKK Grand-Wizard and why is he so connected to White Supremacist? Why does his rally throw out people of colour and not allowing them in? Why does he blame inner-city youth and talks of America Great Again! But never says when America was great? Or how he really thinks it is going to be great, yet again.

Trump-U-Blog-Post-Image2

Trump is a rich man who has allowed to be bloated, nobody ask him real questions and never touched in an interview, as they want the ratings of having his orange-skinned ass in the studio or on the phone. He acts so chauvinist and male dominated as he attacks Hillary, while he claims she does the same things. Actually his campaigns becomes more and more like her with Super-PACs, RNC funding and billion stimulus package, that will also cover the borrowed money for the Trump primary elections in the GOP. So he is now pocketed like all the rest he supposed to be different from… the long list of nonsense is staggering.

It’s not like I can discuss his policies since he can negotiate his tax reform, his migration reform though not allowing Muslims, Mexicans and other emigrants… if they had done that about 50 years or 70 years ago, United States of America might never see Trump; Can Marty McFly go back in time and fix that?  While he has policies to open Fracking, Coal Production and Oil drilling even in fragile areas. He is for it as long as there is possible money to be made by doing so. He will deal with everybody, if not he will kill their kids and families, as then he will silence terrorist and control better than the current leaders. Because that is healthy foreign policy, while pushing on bills on NATO and also questioning other partners or allies of US. That means that Iceland can expect that the Americans leave their nation and also that AFCON in Germany will be slimmed down, as the American First is putting a Bomber on JFK and bombing the crap out of Syria and Iraq. Second because Putin the friend of Trump will need his planes and his goodwill in the near future.

Fox News

The rest of his values can be negotiated or decided by the states as long as doesn’t need to write Executive-Orders from the White House. That is because he plans to play golf like George W. Bush, somebody he looked up too, until his favourable ratings went down like many of his former businesses. He is only using people and the ones that will become loyal men the rest can scatter for the winds, because they are liars, crooks or even worse dishonest people. Well, who is this Trump character to judge other, aye?

At some point he used illegal Polish “Brigade” workers to build his Trump Tower, in the midst of workers strike; he used his ties to mob-bosses who by some strange coincidence supplied the dry-cement to build it also used mob-technic to silence the strike around the Tower; so the building could be built in time. So as long as Trump earns money on his ties with gangsters; he will use it, but if they are gangster from Mexico, who doesn’t serve him; then he want to send them packing over the border, Aghast, the irony right?

With all this in mind, with all the grand knowledge of how he operates, how can people still support and look up to this man. Trump at some point jumped on Mitt Romney for delivering his IRS Tax Returns late when he was the GOP Presidential Nominee. If I remember correctly it was in January 2012 Trump asked for Romney to deliver his Tax Returns and he did it late in the Election Cycle, therefore it got screened carefully, as they wanted to see what he didn’t wanted the world to see. Now that Donald Trump is himself the Nominee of the RNC, he still hasn’t delivered it and soon going to the Republican Convention. Like a gold-fish he forgets how he attacked other politicians and now does the same, just worse because he have tarnished others for the same actions. That implies that he have no moral accord.

Trump Christian Quote

Just as he have put honour on the name of the North Korean dictator Kim Jung-Un, just as he wants a close friendship with Putin and wants to kill families of terrorist. The way he back in the day worked with gangsters to build his Ivory tower named Trump Tower in New York. He is still accepted by the Republic Party and the honourable men, of Christian Conservative of America. That is worrying how little they care for honesty and legacy of those who are supposed to be conservative and Christians in the United States, that they will be behind a man that are strikingly not living up to their values; instead using it like a Con-Man to get their support. Another reason why I despise him, since the only sincere value he has in his body is that he loves his own name and his own voice on any TV-Network at any given time.

He is like a Political Kardashian, he is famous for being famous, he used once back in the day to actually build something. Back in the day  he run lots of businesses to ground, he still have lots of business and property, many bought in the estate collapse of the 1970s through the networks of his father, bribed politicians and famous Italian gangsters in New York. This is the man the Republican National Committee, the Grand Old Party (GOP) which actually fits the hand in the glove. The Glove is Trump that covers the whole RNC/GOP while he is fisting the message of nothing to the American public. Because his words is just negotiations or maverick tricks of deception; he doesn’t care about values or honesty; he cares about his own position or serving the American Nation, the United States.

And that people put their trust in him is just blatant ignorance or factors of malfunctioning electoral procedure in the United States and their two major parties. Therefore men like him could all of sudden rise like weak phoenix from the ashes and act as saviour, while the real men see him as baboon with no honour. He might have some money, not as much money as he claims to have, if had that than he would have showed the through rough estimated value of his businesses. That he doesn’t have the character or bravery to even do, even he speaks like a macho-man, instead he ends up looking a weak-man who attacks everybody else, instead of saying what he really will do or how it will be under his leadership. Even his Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski is usually blaming the Obama-Government, the RNC-Organization or even Clinton, instead of saying how Trump really will act in power; because he doesn’t know himself.

What is ironic that he claims that Clinton isn’t qualified, she might not been perfect in her role as Minister under Obama, she still have been in the Senate and knows how Capitol Hill works. That is more than Trump ever will know, as he doesn’t know what kind of Departments that exists. So Trump shouldn’t speak of qualifications, she might be wrong with E-Mails as Secretary of State, well, was it was correct to hire and work with Mob-bosses Trump? Both cases are in the past, one recent, the other older, but the one doesn’t counter the other.

A Trump Straw-Company set-up to not pay tax to the IRS and state of Florida.

A Trump Straw-Company set-up to not pay tax to the IRS and state of Florida.

So with all this in mind, as this is a rant for a tired European, who wishes not to see this Reality Kardashian Politician to get into office, as that should be for somebody with character, with a little subtlety and also moral authority; all of which Trump is differing from, I am not for Clinton either… if you think so, you are wrong as her husband will always be remembered for me, as his executive order to bomb an Aspirin factory in Sudan in 1998. That is the beauty of remembering stuff. That’s why my leaf is for Bernie Sanders he is the only honest candidate and man who can carry his history, even the ones where he standing on the wrong side in Congress, that is because he have actual arguments that within reason can understand. Not that he have coined on his name or his state, instead been a honest politician. Something that is rare, like a wildflower in the midst of a bush.

Donald J. Trump, you are not presidential, never will be presidential, you cannot turn yourself presidential or act presidential. Because you don’t own humility or character to pull it off, you have to make water to wine and even build your own presidential head on the Mount Rushmore, and still you wouldn’t be it. You can call other phony, you can call other men and woman dishonest, but you shouldn’t; because you haven’t really been that truthful yourself, aye?

Peace.
