Credibility – Lies

1-As stunning as this sounds, fresh evidence arrives every day of the government treating the man elected to lead it as someone talking mostly to himself. This man calls his untruths truthful exuberance or alternative facts! I will use a word white folk use – flabbergasted! In your relationships with anyone a lie is usually a deal breaker. It is now to the point, remarkably, the extent to which his senior officials act as if Trump were not the chief executive. Everyday a new lies is told and sometimes several at a time. Never has a president been so regularly ignored or contradicted by his own officials. HE LIES!

Federal officials aren’t the only ones. Police chiefs distanced themselves from Trump’s public call for rougher treatment of criminal suspects but the White House said the president was joking. Even the Boy Scouts have complained about him saying is an apology for Trump’s odd, politically charged remarks to the group. After Trump claimed in an interview that the Boy Scouts chief had called to declare it “the greatest speech ever made to them,” the Scouts organization disclaimed any such call.

But the phenomenon has grown more pronounced as Trump keeps struggling to govern amid special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. Also, an extremely low new rating – the lowest in history – 36%! But somehow he sees everything as great and claims the admistration is working like a well oiled machine – NOT!

Trump keeps casting doubt on Russia’s culpability for cyber attacks on the 2016 election campaign. His own national security officials, including Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and CIA Director Mike Pompeo, said last month they have no doubts.

Part of the disconnect flows from Trump’s inattention to, and weak grasp of, complex policy issues. With the multiple firing, all of them were the “best people”. Those people may even include his new chief of staff, retired Marine Gen. Kelly. Ten days after Trump installed Scaramucci with the rare status of reporting directly to the president, Kelly fired him Monday in his own first day on the job.

Let me suggest that you pay no attention to the nonsense that comes out of his mouth. Rather, look at the destructive things that are being done that’s not talked about. Let me use one of his favorite words – so far his presidency is a disaster! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…


Happy Birthday Nelson Mandela

4History, or those who write it, has an interesting way of minimizing actions of wrong doing done by the power of governments against anyone who challenges their domination. Mr. Mandela is the perfect example; when they talk about Mandela, they hardly mention that governments around the world referred to him as a terrorist, a convict, a communist, and a saboteur. In other words, he was most hated and an enemy of the state.

This has happened to other men such as Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, who were also labeled as dangerous and enemies of the state – both were assassinated, and there are some who say by the state. I make this comparison because these men became great heroes after their death. Mandela was no doubt one of the greatest heroes of the last century achieving it in life. What he achieved in South Africa even Mahatma Gandhi was unable to do in India, and Mandela did it in a way that respected all of humanity. This is Mandela’s greatest glory!

Even his prison number 46664 (meaning prisoner 466 incarcerated in 1964) is now the name of humanitarian and charitable organizations. Mandela used his superior strength of will to turn those who opposed him into tools to make the world a better place. Mandela was a man who evolved above the pettiness of racial conflict, a man who saw with profound clarity that South Africa was not a Black nation, a Colored nation or a White nation. He saw South Africa as a great nation with opportunities for all people no matter their color, their tribe, their religion, or their culture.

Most people don’t know that the system used in South Africa known apartheid was derived from the racial practices of our own American south – only taken to the extreme! It was so dominant that blacks had to cross the street to avoid whites to include eye contact with them. It was a government rooted in real fear of a State that threatened dire consequences should a white person be assaulted or even insulted.

The Apartheid government was the most ridged and cruelest regime on the planet. For those who don’t know history, this government was firmly supported by the American government and Ronald Reagan in particular. If not for the powerful Black Lobby in the U.S. Congress, the United States would most likely have given South Africa even more support, including weapons.

From the early stages of Mandela’s life, he fought against this brutal system of oppression which resulted in his being sentenced to prison on Robben Island for a third of his life. Another fact unknown to most is that strangely enough the name Robben Island means “island of seals” in Afrikaans. The power and support from most of the outside world was such that little information was available concerning the regimes atrocities. Virtually no articles were published in the North American mainstream media; according to the editors they were not interested in articles about terrorists.

The outside world heard very little about Nelson Mandela. Few heard about Stephen Biko’s murdered and the thousands of South Africans that were persecuted, as most of the world continued to do trade with South Africa as a strong pro-Western anti-communist power. They had even developed and tested their own nuclear weapon.

1Finally after years of struggle and hardship, apartheid was overthrown, and Nelson Mandela became the first Black President of South Africa. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace. The U.S. presented him with the Medal of Freedom and the Soviet Union presented him with The Order of Lenin. Yet, he still officially remained on the list of people barred from entry to the United States.

In 1969 or anytime during the Seventies, the very idea that Nelson Mandela would one day be President of South Africa was an impossible thought. No one, not even Mandela himself could imagine such a possibility. It was simply impossible. Yet it happened. The impossible became possible and in achieving that position, winning the Nobel prize, Mandela gave a gift to all of us the gift of hope, the realization that no matter how daunting the situation, no matter how formidable the obstacles, that passion, courage and imagination can prevail.

We all die but few have lived as Nelson Mandela lived; few have achieved as much as he was able to achieve. I am happy that Mandela was able to live a long and remarkable life. He not only served his country with exceptional honor, but he has served all of mankind with dignity and amazing grace. The world surely has become a better place since he joined the human family.

In closing, this is Nelson Mandela’s most profound statement that will live in history as an inspiration. He stood firm for decades on the principle that until all South Africans enjoyed equal liberties. He said; he would not leave prison himself, declaring in his autobiography, ‘Freedom is indivisible; the chains on any one of my people were the chains on all of them, the chains on all of my people were the chains on me.’ Because of his epic fight against injustice, the entire nation is now free. We mourn his loss and offer our condolences to his family and the people of South Africa.

And that’s my thought provoking perspective…


American Chaos Dark And Dangerous

imrs.phpI have taken a bit of a break because I needed to step away from what appears to be cover-up after cover-up with Trump and his pep’s. I don’t like to mention this guy by name as he is not my president and is a disaster! Everyday there is something new with him and I hate him continuing to blame Mr. Obama for all of his errors and faults! Not only that but his mouthpiece is as much of a disgrace as the rest of his crooked gang. It has gotten so bad that after news spread that President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, Press Secretary Sean Spicer went to great lengths to avoid the barrage of media questions he was bound to get. He reportedly took shelter behind bushes.

We’ve seen people on television in other countries around the world being rounded up, the opposition being fired, jailed or “disappeared.” We’ve are now watching the American Strongman do the same thing right here in America, although shocked, as citizens allow their laws be violated, upended and changed to satisfy their leader’s whim, vendettas or ego. Black people have been saying for the beginning that this guy was a fraud but this pick cannot be put on us; this is the fault of white people and now they have buyer’s remorse! This guy is making Bush look like a saint!

The move to fire Comey was done to bring back confidence to the top law enforcement agency – cheap excuse because it has never had any! Comey’s real transgression was to launch a serious investigation into possible cooperation between Trump’s campaign and a clandestine attempt by the Russian government to swing the election in Trump’s favor. With both the House and the Senate in Republican hands, the president probably calculates that the various congressional probes can be castrated. Fox News and other friendly media can be counted on to push the line that the real issue is leaks, not possible collusion with a foreign power to subvert our democracy, which they know its BS!

But the FBI is not so easily put off the scent. Does Michael Flynn, fired as national security adviser for lying about his talks with the Russian ambassador, have a story to tell? What about Carter Page? If they are in legal jeopardy, how will they react when the FBI squeezes? Whom else might agents be talking to? Is the FBI asking about members of Trump’s family? About Trump himself? Yelling “fake news” hasn’t put an end to the investigation but firing Comey might do it. Besides the goal is to replace him with someone less independent and more compliant; someone 45 can control.

Trump-Russia Bombshell the reason Comey was fired!!!

The first thing a fascist must do is take is to silence the media or control them of them and then you. I will only say this is a very Nixon like move to save himself. His actions are gansta and thuggish and frankly any American with eyes should be ashamed – very ashamed! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…


The One Hundred Day Disaster

1x.jpgFirst, let’s be clear the whole election was motivated and won because of race and the black man once elected to lead America. I have always said to white folk that if you hate the black part of him, try loving the white part; after all – his mother was white.

Therefore, it is also clear that the person chiefly responsible for the racist and bogus birther claim was elected president for that very reason. Everybody knows that race has always been the driving America’s force in policy making to protect and benefit white folk! This guy railed about and against everything thing Obama did and he has done all those things himself.

So white folk got together and claimed to want a razzle-dazzle President says outrageous, untrue and inconsistent things in the hope of generating headlines or as they said to take back their country. They failed to scrutinize any of his deplorable actions and now we face the very real possibility of  war and the collapse of America. So it’s no surprise that #45 is disparaging the inevitable results-oriented First 100 Days reviews.

He has signed a huge number of executive orders and nothing else; meaning he has failed to do anything for the people only for his family and rich friends. This man is unqualified, unfocused, unprincipled, divisive, shallow and nasty solipsist has been outmatched by a once-fooled national media, plus an unexpected Democratic pushback on the streets, in town halls, in Congress and in court. So far current polling shows Trump holding on to the lowest approval rating of any newly elected president in modern times.

Instead, let’s apply this axiom to his time in office; “facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.” By the standards of legislation, strategy, popularity and national purpose, 45 has been a failure; an epic failure so far, with the prospect of more failures to come. Unless or until he is impeached! Why this happened is hidden in plain sight. It goes back to racism! There used to be a saying “white is right” and no matter what their offenses are overlooked.

One other element turns this into a political bonfire: Next to none of his bellowing, reactionary assumptions are true. His claim of building a wall again goes back to racism. Refugees don’t commit more crime, net immigration from Mexico is near zero, climate change is real, people want health insurance and meals on wheels, and giving more money to the top 0.1% makes them, not us, richer.

No, unlike Caligula, he has not named his horse first consul. But day after day, everything seems to be driven not by strategy and facts but only by vanity, money and family (his). “Yelling fake news,” wrote columnist Eugene Robinson “cannot mask a fake presidency.”

Let’s recap his first 100 days:

The only thing 45 can lay claim too is that he did give the country a conservative justice to the Supreme Court. Of course, he like any good performance artist, 45 has been frequently photographed with applauding appointees signing numerous minor executive orders and, pending judicial review, repealing recent Obama administration rules to protect workers, investors and our waterways. On the merits, these appear to be anti-accomplishments.

Trump has been a Lord of the Lies. For example, the FBI, Jeff Sessions, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan have said that President Barack Obama did not criminally wiretap Trump. Mean while, 45 dismiss all evidence of collusion between his campaign and the Russians as “fake news” despite just about everybody working on his campaign seemed to have Russian interactions that the FBI is investigation as a criminal probe.

More troubling, he calls the media “the enemy of the people,” disparaging the independent judiciary and “so-called” judges, and trying to suppress voting rights, he appears to have more in common with Putin and other dictators around the world.

In short, all his failures and failings over 100 Days appear ominous. He doesn’t seem to have the capacity, discipline or motivation to grow into the job. It is very hard to change your habits and personality when you are over 70 years old; his lying, bullying, adolescent tweedicts, contempt for law and norms appear unalterable. This time in office has been a disaster! And that is my thought provoking perspective…


God Help Us!

462_160They call today earth day but they elected the worst person to lead the charge to save the planet – 45. However, what we have seen in the first 100 days is not only a disgrace to America but to humanity! This guy claims Obama left him a mess but I would say you have made a mess of things! We saw riots at the swearing-in for the new president and minimal crowds attending the event. To which the liar in chief claim was the biggest crowd ever – millions – not true! This man cannot tell the true nor the same story from one moment to the next.

He might soon be known as the most hated man on earth as people came out Saturday by the millions to protest what he represents. I agree with John Lewis in that he is the illegitimate president and in fact, he conned the white folk who elected him. Most of us believed that Bush was the least intelligent president ever but after this guy Bush must have felt like a rocket scientist and Obama must have been embarrassed!

Bush could not make money in oil and Trump went bankrupt running a casino – these are the people they elected to run the country! After living with and through eight years when we have had the smartest president in history and now we got this – very painful. The shame and disgrace that Bush brought on the country; I would suggest for all of the people who pray, now is the time to start – Heaven help us! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…


With 45 – Just Follow The Money

1-The history of mankind is clear; no civilization has lasted when greed and injustice caused it to become rotten to its core. We have seen recently that the land of the so-called free and the home of the brave has reached this milestone in the most shameful and shocking ways. White folk, by and large, elected a man who is a bigot and racist to be the leader of the country and a cast of GOP conservatives that plans to destroy the nation as we knew it.

History is known to repeat itself and from the standpoint of governance and the transparency with regard to information exposing government practices, police killings, and dare I say, it is reminiscent the Third Reich of Nazi Germany. If you can recall, their reign of terror was perpetrated at the hands of taking away the free press and promoting fake news. The modern day Nazi’s is in place to take away all our rights in the most fascist ways. They lie and no one can believe anything that the American President says.

The problem is racism and although few will openly admit it. Racism is a dangerous disease more crippling and AID’s or cancer; it affects every action in American life. The new guy and I refuse to say his name, I just refer to him as 45, has a long history of bigotry and failures. Yes, they made him their champion because he told white folk what they wanted to hear and in fact what is in their hearts. Classic flimflam!

If President Obama had done anything close to what this guy has done Articles of Impeachment would already be on the floor of the Senate! So how could this be except for racism being the reason? When Obama was in office the least little thing he did was a catastrophe but the things guy says and does even a blind man can see nothing this guy does in going to end well. Or to use his favorite word a disaster! So why is it that white folk cannot see it. Racism is the only answer!

I am a believer in the way to see a man’s soul it to follow the money, which means his budget. So America gets a chance to see what this guy’s view of America going forward. A rise in military spending and cutting everything else; John Oliver can explain it to you! And that is my thought provoking perspective…


Conspiracy Theory: Manchurian Candidate

trumpI think I have figured it out, meaning the outrageous selection of 45 and all the things associated with ascending to be the now so-called president. We know he is what America is, racist to its core, even if white folk disagree. Russia and other outside business entities helped to make sure he would be the next president. This much we know!

Don’t misunderstand me, he is a crook and conman, which means he does have some smarts but surely not smart enough to be the leader of the free world and to date, he has proven that feat to be doubtful! I have come to the conclusion that he is more like a Manchurian Candidate programmed to be the many personalities that we see, particularly with regards to his narcissistic personality and conflicted mental state.

For those who don’t know, in 1959 a novel was written by Richard Condon which was a political thriller about the son of a prominent U.S. political family who is brainwashed into being an unwitting assassin for a Communist conspiracy. The novel has been adapted twice into a feature film by the same title, in 1962 and again in 2004. What I am saying is he is an assassin, rather his actions and policies will kill thousands of American people be it through healthcare or a war, which appears to be part of the game plan. Nonetheless, it appears that he has been brainwashed or controlled, to say the least!

Major Bennett Marco, Sergeant Raymond Shaw, and the rest of their infantry platoon are kidnapped during the Korean War in 1952. They are taken to Manchuria and are brainwashed to believe that Shaw saved their lives in combat for which Congress awards him the Medal of Honor. Although 45 avoided the war of his day nor did he get any legitimate medals. It could be very possible that he was conditioned or through the use of mind control conditioned him for the role he now plays.

We can see the GOP is thoroughly involved as their intent is to take back their (racist) country. Now, if other outside influences are involved it’s a conspiracy, but it is clear the aim is to roll back time to obtain the country it has been for most of its existence. With his buddy Jeff the top lawman I can see more concentration camps (prisons) ahead!

Back to the original story, years after the war, Marco, now back in the United States working as an intelligence officer, begins suffering the recurring nightmare of Shaw murdering two of his comrades, all while clinically observed by Chinese and Soviet intelligence officials. When Marco learns that another soldier from the platoon also has been suffering the same nightmare, he sets to uncovering the mystery and its meaning. I think it is fair to say that 45’s mission it to take as much money from the system for himself and the rich!

It is being revealed that the Communists, Russia, have been using him as a sleeper agent, knowingly or not, a guiltless white supremacist subconsciously to do evil on the population of America and beyond. It also appears that they have made him a puppet by what appears to be done by the Soviets to do their bidding for what appears to be a legitimist coup d’état” to quietly overthrow the U.S. government; certainly to open the door for or to make things more favorable for the Kremlin.

His fallback position is always to lie and there have been many and accuse the former president of everything that happens negatively on his watch, although he readily takes credit for anything that seems to be good. However, so far there has not been much that would be considered good. He has surrounded himself with the alt-right folks and his no nothing family to push an agenda designed to foster white supremacy. If president Obama had done anything close to the havoc he has caused at any time during his presidency impeachment proceeding would be underway.

What I see as more reprehensible is that his actions are as clear as the nose on your face but the conservative movement revels in his every action, which I can only conclude – as with everything in America – is racial. During slavery and Jim Crow, the policy was always “I am white and I say so”! In fact, it was written in the Dred Scott Decision that a black man has no rights that a white man is bound to respect. Muslim and Hispanic have come to be the new black. So we have entered the new age of Jim Crow!

Just take notice to all the closet bigots that have rolled over and come out openly to now want to kiss his ring and his narcotic nature adores the adulation! Whether or not he has been programmed for such evil I can’t say, but so far all of us should be frightened! We can see white folk have created a Frankenstein who will harm them as well as the “others”. WE SHOULD BE VERY FRIGHTENED!!! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…

The only group who has benefited has been Saturday Night Live!
