Political Greed

Do you love your country or do you love Hispanics?

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was not to prove he didn’t exist, but to confuse, distract and distort the reality presented the people of the world.

Paper work (our circumvented Constitution), imaginary borders (which Mexico hasn’t paid for) and ideologies (which spawn mass shooters). All of these keep men and women shackled within the confines of an illusionary reality. Lately our prison has come in the form of our own laws and leaders as Trump, Barr and McConnell circumvent the Constitution leaving America without any means to combat the destruction being done in regards to the democracy of the United States. What could make Dan Coates (former head of the department of national intelligence) walk into a public meeting and tell his deputy she needs to resign immediately as he has just done and after a conversation she resigned the next day? White house lawyers claim Trump is immune to the criminal process and his AG backs that claim and without the Senate nothing will be stopped until it crashes.

1. Loyalty
Like his father and his father’s father Trump used white nationalist and white supremacist as his base because what he wanted to do needed to be secret and he understood that above the hate what the racist value most is secrecy. This first phase was how he decided to choose his henchman. Stephen miller, Corey lewandowski, attorney William Barr all swore allegence to Trump and James Comey was the example to all who didn’t. The flip side of that coin was protection. If you were in his Good graces you were rewarded like Nikki haley who oversaw the white nationalist mass shooting of 8 black church goers at the hands of dillon roof and was rewarded with a United Nations position in Trump’s administration. Many were the benefactors of lucrative contracts and this administrations over reaching executive privilege. William Barr inserting himself in every process including the complaint to the DNI which he has no right interjecting in.

2. Maintenance

Maintaining is almost as important as secrecy. Throughout this whole process the in coming and out going carousel of cabinet members and lower level department heads have been nothing more than maintenance. William Barr on advice from Mitch McConnell, white house lawyers and Rudy guliani was nominated and appointed as Attorney general McConnell advised Trump to do it before the Democrats won the house, white house lawyers knew they couldn’t assert executive privilege how they wanted unless they had an attorney general to substantiate the ridiculous claims of executive privilege. We will get to Rudy guliani later.

3. Operate

With everything secure Trump began to operate. Once Trump knew everyone was clueless and distracted he began. First he invited some Russians to the oval office. He then ignored the torture and murder of new York times journalist Jamal khashoggi

Immediately the media chasing their tales jumped to conclusions. Overthinking, but it is this simple Russia was the attack dog for trumps agenda. He promised to relieve the pressure putin was putting on Ukraine in exchange for Ukrainian compliance. The release of aide on the day the whistleblower complaint was revealed was an attempt by Republicans loyal to Trump to damage control and keep the global shakedowns in place. As Trump outsources everything from American oil to American gas. Allowing Russian oligarch depraska access to American aluminium plants in Mitch McConnell run Kentucky.

https://www.newsweek.com/company-russian-oligarch-millions-aluminum-plant-mitch-mcconnell-1397061

With the heinous murder of journalist khashoggi at the hands of Saudi Arabia and Trump saying he believed the Saudi king didn’t know about it. It was necessary for Trump to quiet things down between America and saudi Arabia. Now we know why. Trump had entered a war. He joined sides against Yemen in hopes to rid the Sinai peninsula of Iranian influence. After the drone attack on Saudi oil refineries Trump decided to deploy troops to Saudi Arabia I guess the 2 billion in weapons trump circumvented Congress to give t them wasn’t enough protection. So begins the all out offensive on YEMEN and the houthi rebels fighting for their lives against Saudis oppressive regime. Ultimately Trump’s strategy is to afflict so much harm on Iranian allies that Iran will be forced to act.

Meanwhile The appointing of hundreds of district judges and supreme Court judges in hopes to twist the law to fit trumps narrative of being supreme ruler of America so Any legal challenges will be met with a change of venue to Trump friendly districts. Halting the process in it’s tracks. While the federal election commission which would have had jurisdiction over the whistleblowers complaint has been suspended due to its inability to form a quorum because Trump’s failure to appoint officials. Coincidence I think not.

4. The results

We will not know the full scope of the Republican party and Donald Trump’s treacherous treason until he and the Republican party are taken out of office, but what we can see so far is what looks like a global attempt to destroy democracy as powerful nations position themselves for land grabs as the world inevitably awaits a hard brexit. Which is expected to lead to the Swift deterioration of the global economy. As we see Boris johnson in the UK, bolasarno in brazil, Trump in AMERICA all pushing against immigration and strict reforms of it, Between the climate changing and war; immigration is only going to get worse. With that comes food shortages and conflicts due to over population. It’s a scene straight out of Revelations and racism, classism and sexism has yet to be resolved. I can only see an uncivil global civil war.

What’s certain is that after 2020 freedom and democracy will not look the same. America will be more isolated then it’s ever been with even fewer allies. Wars will be burning around the globe and many countries will be starting from scratch. I feel that the world after alot of death, pain, sadness and Carnage will finally have enough hurt and the perpetrators of the world’s greatest crimes and deceptions will be rounded up and eradicated, but until then democracy and humanity will face the political deceit and greed of dictators and evil men

Above the LAW

Have you noticed the recent wave of Republicans who will not seek re-election? As most news organizations question the departures due to the Republicans necessity to hold on to certain seats if they wish to maintain control of the Senate and regain control of the house of Representatives. Fully aware of what’s at stake why the Republican Exodus?It began when speaker of the house John boehner eloquently proclaimed it was time to “drain the swamp” a phrase the Republicans would use in numerous campaigns. As a result we see what the meaning of this phrase seems to mean in regards to America. While Obama was working out the remainder of his term. The Republicans behind the scenes were working on what I can only describe as the dismantling or undermining of Americas democracy.After allowing netanyahu to speak on the Congress floor it was apparent the Republicans were compromised and no longer saw Obama as commander and chief. the firing of general Flynn would be a major sign of things to come. The plan to undo America through civil strife and domestic terrorism. If we reflect on the events in Barack Obama’s last term we see Mike brown and trayvon Martin murdered. We see a rise in police aggression towards African Americans. which ultimately leads up to a presidential beer summit due to the arrest of Cambridge professor Henry louis Gates in his own home.Fast forward to the election of Donald trump and the unapologetic bigotry that began coming out if the white House. Ultimately resulting in Trump breaking numerous laws and siding with hate filled fringe groups to create a divide between Republicans and Democrats , blacks and whites, poor and rich.What could it be that has taken the fight out of the Republicans? Could it be that there is no hope left for America? As we await another bubble similar to the housing bubble that will eventually collapse the economy. Could it be that trump is the bubble as he says if he loses the economy will go down the drain? Could it be that everything that was America is being purged? Could it be this exodus of Republicans is because they know the democracy of America is over and the Republicans under Obama destroyed it?How could they secure donors as the continuous antics of Trump forces Conservatives to look in the mirror and reflect on their values. In the same way the Conservatives are falling apart in england. How could you donate to hate and still attempt to engage in a democratic discussion in good faith? Trump has pushed the Republican party so far right they must pretend to see what radical Conservatives see. Built on a mafia premise. “You don’t go against the family”. The Republicans are the family and Trump is the leader. Which is why he lies constantly.Trump said Mexico would pay for the wall, but now American tax payers are going to pay for it with money from the military budget leaving certain programs necessary for our military personnel cut. How does a Republican run on self inflicted harm. Challenges for president from within Trump’s own party should say it all, but still the majority of Congressional Republicans stand behind trumps acts. How will they explain how Trump through various acts enriched himself as people from Mike pence to airforce pilots lined Trump’s pockets while staying at his luxury hotels abroad. That money could have went back into the American budget, but it ended up in Trump’s bank book.With Trump resorts strategically positioned around our allies and his ever cozy relationship with Russia. The world watches and waits to see wether these large resorts will become military bases for war against our allies or as a buffer against EU aggression. Republicans wait silently. Waiting for the day trump will prove them right as the clock ticks closer and closer alot of Republicans are losing faith. They do not know if Trump is friend or foe. Which in my opinion is the real reason Trump hasn’t been impeached. He and his property are of strategic military value. As brexit looms closer and Iranian, Israel hostilities heat up it appears the world is headed towards catastrophe. Most Republicans believe Trump will be the hero. While the Democrats believe he will betray America.Meanwhile there will be no election oversight for 2020 as Republicans have fled and left the federal election commission (FEC) unable to function. The courts have decided that those who are apart of the electoral college are allowed to vote however they want. So even if trump loses the popular vote as he did the last election he still wins a second term if the electoral college says so. America we are in a very strange time in history. Once the donald Trump bubble bursts America will face an unimaginable economic disaster. If Americas finances runs through Trump’s organization as it seems to appear then even if trump is not president he still would control America’s destiny. Making Trump americas first dictator and the Republican party his henchman. As we see white nationalist carry out mass shootings in hopes to scare people into loyalty. Remember Trump said the violence would get worst if he was impeached. How does a President threatens his own people🤔🤔🤔

BUYERS REMORSE!

Why we wish we could unlearn what we learned about American politics..

In 2008 Barack Obama ran on a campaign of hope and change. Included in this aspiration was the idea that he wanted to make government more transparent. After the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the enron scandal Americans felt they had been tricked. Obama was purposing a bailout and the nation was angry and needed to know why. Why should they have to pay for the horrible decisions made by corrupt bankers. From that point on everything under Obama was scrutinized and needed to be made clear. A hindrance to Obama at times, but a gift for Republicans.

https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/283335-obama-this-is-the-most-transparent-administration-in-history

The idea of transparency in my opinion eased the fear of most hardcore racist and far right voters. As they could see what the first black man was doing. Picking a 30 year career politician in joe biden eased the lefts fears that Obama didn’t have the experience. Besides the infamous tan suit transparency gave Barack Obama a squeaky clean image. He had become the president Americans had been waiting for honest and sincere. Eventually Obama would finish his two terms as president with grace.

After what many consider to be one of the ugliest presidential campaigns ever. Donald J Trump was elected president of the united States immediately the nation began each morning. With a cup of joe and a double shot of shock. Apparently Trump decided to roll back all things Obama except the transparency part. By this time America had saw Trump for who he was, but by that time it was too late. Trump had become the president and the purge of American resources had begun. With a Republican super majority he could now do whatever he desired. It wasn’t until Trump’s 3rd year that he realized it wasn’t just the media telling everyone what was going on. in an attempt to cloud the transparency Trump left many positions vacant and the ones he didn’t leave vacant he appointed people who would create subterfuge to send inquiries to dead ends or in a loop. The question is what if those rules of transparency implemented by Obama didn’t exist. Could you imagine what Trump is doing being done in secret?

We wanted to know what our leaders were doing. I for one thought it would be an excellent idea. After donald Trump I find myself in a bit of a quandary. As I feel it is important for American citizens to have knowledge so the can make informed decisions, but to be subject to the ugliness and sheer brutality of politics leads often unstable minds to act in irrational Way’s. So I guess the saying rings true. “Be careful what you ask for”

The Chosen one

This is donald J Trump’s Report card for his first term:

Infrastructure = C

When Donald J. Trump became president there were a series of train derailments and crumbling bridges. After granting millions in emergency funding to the wife of Mitch McConnell who was head of the NTSB Trump has kept his word to rebuild roads, tracks and bridges through federal funding, but why wouldn’t he most construction companies are owned and operated by Caucasian males and very few heavy equipment operator are of color. mainly the colored people are laborers or hold the flags for traffic. Banks are giving home repair loans and home loans at better rates and more freely with less red tape. Which allow minorities investment opportunities in real estate as long as they have good enough credit.

Immigration= F

  • It’s been almost 4 years since Trump promised a wall. To this date the wall is nonexistent and Mexico hasn’t paid for anything. Immigrants are still coming and going. Trump’s idea of immigration reform appears to be oppression and persecution as a deterrent. Notable policy enforcements included
  • Child seperation
  • Refusal to provide showers and soap
  • Indefinite detention of babies
  • Ice raids
  • Elimination of birth right citizenship

Gun rights and crime= D

Touting himself as the law and order president Trump stated he would restore order under his presidency. To date there have been twice as many mass shootings and what looks like a war between police and citizens as six police officers were shot in one situation in Philadelphia and killings by police have tripled. His inability to separate himself from the NRA seems to have tied his hands when it comes to regulating assault weapons and other gun issues begging the question is Trump pay for play like all other puppets in Washington that take corporate donations.

Women’s rights= F

As the federal government cut funding to planned parenthood and Republican run States implement the strictest abortion laws in the country. we watch as facilities withdraw from the title x funding allocated to clinics throughout america. With his support of people like Republican senator Steve king who akin rape and incest to suitable ways of population growth. To his support for accused paedophile Roy Moore this grade should be of no surprise.

Trade and economy= D

One of the biggest talking points used by Trump is the claim of a booming economy. I cannot give Trump credit for this economy because he began with a stable economic pulse left by Barack Obama. Also the numerous actions of the FED chairman to counter balance Trump’s erratic actions in regards to tax cuts for the wealthy, the false trade war with China, the bailout of the farming industry, the crumbling steel industry which tariffs on China was suppose to help and the secret deals surrounding a Russian oligarch in regards to America’s aluminum industry. As the markets begin to show signs of a recession we must ask what was really done to strengthen the economy for the future. We must recognize that 70% of Chinese goods are marketed in low income areas which means the 500 billion in product that trump turned into a few trillion in revenue was created on the backs of the poor.. since they do not consider black and brown as people no one was harmed.

Domestic and foreign policy= F

If we are honest we can say that america seems more divided than it ever has… Between the barrage of insults and attacks on people of color emboldening racists, his attacks on countries of color implying they are Sh!t holes. To his snubbing of foreign officials from the Danish PM to the utter misogynistic approach to Angela Merkel. The shocking rhetoric regarding Congressional representatives who do not approve of his approach. all the way to the threats directed towards fellow Republicans who question it. The failed involvement in Venezuela and the inability to stop North Korea from threatening it’s neighbors with numerous rocket tests. The refusal to support globalized dreams of democracy from Tokyo, Iran and within Russia. Continuing to allow russia to sale weapons from North Korea to a once strong ally turkey. To the total disrespect of NATO which depends heavily on united States aid.

Race relations /civil rights= F

It’s no surprise Trump gets an F in this category. from appointing Jeff sessions a noted racist as attorney general. To stating that there were fine people within the white nationalist movement. To the nonstop attacks on people of color. The refusal to label the KKK and other white nationalist organizations as terrorist organizations while swiftly claiming black lives matter and antifa are terrorist. Claiming to be king of the Jews while never addressing nazi white supremist marching through the streets of America. Gerrymandering and voter suppression, to the tariffs on China meant to draw financial resources from poor and low income neighborhoods. Lack of funding for public schools and the almost nonexistent aid to small businesses operated by minorities Down to the infamous racially charged chants at his rally addressing 4 righteously elected congresswomen of color to be sent back…

Environmental Policy= F++

After winning his election Trump wasted no time placing political allies in strategic positions for big oil and big pharma corps. Once the director of the EPA had his secret phone booth installed they began to roll back regulations. After ending the ban on drilling in the Arctic, exporting American oil reserves, denying the apparent change in the global climate, Deregulation of the gas and coal industry. Lack of urgency in acting on behalf of farmers affected by global warming. Trump still remains certain global warming is a myth. Also Flint still doest have adequate clean water..

Defense / national security= C

Securing billions in funding for the American military kept Trump from receiving a failing grade. Opening up to the adversaries of America from Russia to North korea allows a means of attack as russia placed a spy ship in Cuba. the inability to reach a nuclear deal with iran or north korea enabling north korea to claim American weakness. The alienation of our allies and NATO. The lack of retaliation for the torture and death of Washington post journalist khashoggi at the hands of Saudi Arabia while agreeing to sell them 8 billion dollars in military weapons which Democrats refused but Republican senators pushed through. The continued war in Afghanistan. The false claim of defeating the caliphate which will result in the worst Arab spring the world has seen.

Education =D+

To Trump’s credit he isn’t responsible for the crumbling of America’s public schools nor for the extraordinary debt incurred by seeking a higher education. However it is his fault for releasing secretary of education Betsy devos on the public school system. Refusing federal funding for necessary supplies needed to keep public schools competitive with private and charter schools has brought about the closing of thousands of public schools across the nation. The inability to operate these schools have force teachers to adjust to classrooms twice as big making teaching more difficult and less interactive . Mix that with low pay it’s no wonder there is a teacher shortage.. the reason I gave Trump a D+ is because of the teachers who use their own pay to buy supplies and even though forgiving 30,000 disabled veterans school loans is all that’s been done in these 3+ years it’s a step in the right direction.

Entitlements= F

While in at a rally in Michigan in front of steel workers who were told they would lose a days pay if they didn’t attend Trump stated “You have no choice to vote for me! You know what would happen to your 401k if you don’t vote for me? It would go down the tubes. So like me or not you have to vote for me”
This statement alone should scare all Americans who have a retirement fund because the statement confirms that Trump is leveraging everyone’s future. Recently Trump has removed millions of people from services such as public assistance. His most recent swipe was denying visas to immigrants who have applied or are currently receiving public assistance and his attempt to unravel the affordable Care act has thrown Medicare into a crisis. Then there’s the issue of social security. A tax that is deducted from every paycheck due to be insolvent by 2030. If this is true what happens to the thousands of dollars tax payers have paid into that system and still are paying?

Employment= C

One on the better numbers on Trump’s report card. As employment remains steady. Even though this number has been steady or growing since Obama. Trump’s policies have not deterred employer from hiring prospective employees, but why wouldn’t they keep hiring uneducated workers who work for fractions of what they should be receiving. As employees work longer hours at wages that cannot maintain an adequately dignified quality of life. As employees have to work 2 to 3 jobs to maintain a normal way of life. There are no other options if you desire to live in America. So there are no incentives to raise wages. For employees who are poor or with limited education the avenues to elevating to the middle class is paved in credit and without it one has no upward mobility. Living paycheck to paycheck there is no extra income to invest. So the employment numbers remaining steady only proves that people are being hired at the same rate they are being fired.

Blue Wave or Red Wall? An America divided..

Today America heads to the polls to cast a vote for a political figure who has run a fairly decent campaign, but are doubted as to their abilities to affect change in the area’s they are running in. The future of America rests on this day. Inspired by this historical day i decided to present my digital photo-graphical work entitled “American ideals”.
