Donald Trump and The Art of Constant U-Turns

When people argue about how financially United States of America remains a a very good case, I usually point them to the phenomenon of Donald Trump. Had everything with American economy been so great, there was no way a person like Donald Trump would have got himself elected. Without any doubt he has to be the greatest Salesman the World has ever seen. He sold himself as the hope for the struggling middle class of America, those the Democrats like to classify as the Racist middle class (Democrats always have a short memory, they tend to forget that it was the same racist white middle class who elected Obama twice). Both the election of Obama and Trump has one thing in common; they both got elected as the Hope of a struggling Middle Class. It's not only how they go elected bears similarity; but even the way they have destroyed those hopes had striking similarity (eventhough Trump is at the start of his Presidency).

One of the main themes of both Obama's and Trump's campaign had to be their reluctance to commit United States of America to unnecessary wars. Those wasted millions could be used at home to revive the pathetic economic conditions of millions, both argued. Once in Office both were very quick to rescind on those promises. Obama won a Noble Peace prize for his oppositions of war and the great anti-war hope he sold. But he managed to wage more war than any of his predecessor. It was no surprise to me as he gave all the glimpse of the same in his Noble Price acceptance speech. Trump despite all his promises looks like going in the same path. The attack against Syria cannot be seen in any other angle. Trump could be one of the most dangerous person occupying the American Presidency - that would be the theme of my next post.

It's not only the War promises which has been rescinded, but many more than that. Remember the "Lock her Up" chants across all his rallies. Now we don't hear anything. He constantly promised how he could restart the inquiries against Ms.Clinton and her crime syndicate. But nothing have happened so far. On the economic front he has got his office crowded with ex-Goldman Sachs guys. If you had some hope of him sending some bankers for their crime to Jail; that ended when they took over his office.

The biggest worry now is the relationship with Russia. One of his Campaign promises has been an attempt to normalize ties with Russia. As a person who sits mile away from both these countries, this was one promise which attracted myself. Russia and American relationship has worsened so much in recent past that one false flag could end the whole world. Trump claimed he could do a good deal with Russia and would see both Russia and America working together than fighting against. With the launch of 59 Missiles and that too on a wrong pretext he ended all those hopes. Putin recently claimed that the relationship between Russia and America has been never this bad; not even under Obama.

He is doing some positive work on the domestic job front. But don't bang hopes too much on them. When the financial crisis hit he will rescind on all those promises and will clearly favour the Business houses over the common man of the country. In the end he has been always a Businessman. He will look after his interest first and that will involve throwing the ones who elected him under the bus if necessary.

Russia and Putin should Finally Accept the Truth! The Myth Buster Edition!

Vladimir Putin will be remembered always as the architect of the Modern Russia and the True Leader of it's people. From the misery and destruction of the 90s, Russia under Putin has once again re-emerged as the true World Super Power. Despite all his successes, his handling of the relationship with West has been quite naive. It seems Russia especially under Putin has been operating under a lot of assumptions which honestly is based on fantasy rather than realism for most of it's part. We have the likes of Stephen Cohen and Paul Craig Roberts, two renowned Russia matter experts constantly reminding us about this disparity between the wish and reality. May be Paul Craig Roberts may seem a bit more outspoken with his views on 'How America treats Russia and How Russia should respond'! But his basic premise of argument has been constantly proven right as we are seeing in the continuous deterioration of Russia - US relationship.

Catalonian Independence Crisis - The Only Solution is a Financial Revolt!

Catalonia cannot obtain Freedom without destroying Spanish Economy and "Bank Runs" could be the path to Freedom! Catalonia, that's a term which worries the European think tanks at the moment the most. It appears to have subsidized for some time with both the Antagonist and the Protagonist looking totally confused about what to do! But then when fools rule, there won't be any shortage for entertainment. So we are fully ready for another episode of Catalonian Revolt. The situation calls for calmer heads who could lead the country to a negotiated settlement; but those kind of people are no longer there in politics. Instead what we have is leaders who think only about their goals and seldom think about the greater good. In that way, the Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and Catalonian leader Carles Puigdemont are brothers in arms. They are both short sighted, selfish and foolish to the core.

OPRAH for President! The Real Target is Bernie Sanders not Donald Trump!

US Presedential elections is without any doubt the biggest Reality TV show on the face of earth; Donald Trump proved the same with histronics in the Presendtial campaign. Can't blame him; it's setup to be the perfect reality show. Otherwise how you will explain a year long campaign; with two seperate selection process (done specifically to establish that only two candidates emerge); tons of media coverage and even more vigorous and frivolous debates. 'And all this to elect One Man - President of United States of America'. All other countries will do the entire exercise in less than two months but not US. There it has to be a 'Grand Show' despite the lacking character.
