Democracy is based on trust. If a representative democracy is ever chosen-should this willingness frequently be renewed via a national referendum- Citizens who delegate their sovereignty when they vote must be assured in return of the integrity of their elected representatives and civil servants. How can a climate of trust be established between citizens and their leaders? How can voter apathy be combated? Can education help overcome the ethical deficit? How can politics, business and the media be protected against the constant quest for profit? Politics must provide answers to the above questions so as to preserve the representative democratic system. It is the guarantor of ethics at all levels of public life, starting at the local level. That is where ordinary citizens become involved on a daily basis as stakeholders in public life – which raises two key questions concerning the delimitation of roles between citizens and political leaders and the limits of transparency. And indeed, transparency has become the most crucial word of all at the dawn of the third millennium. However, to trust isn’t a question of faith or patriotism. To trust someone only begins after he/she has convinced you. Therefore, transparency demands he/she should be able to provide concrete evidence of such allegation he/she would like to submit. Once, political correctness propaganda was made easy because the American people had faith in the creed they were living in a Democracy. By contrast, a cyber-attack era demands not only highly skilled geeks but shrewd leaders, and Obama was never of that league. After Hillary Clinton’s crushing defeat, part of which being the strong rejection of Obama’s disastrous policy, he could have chosen to leave office with dignity and what the French call ‘une certaine élégance’. Yet, in the course of his last few weeks in the White House, Mr. Obama definitely prefers to turn America’s highness into the best joke of the past eight years. When during the presidential campaign, a boasting President declared: “Donald Trump doesn’t have the knowledge to become a U.S. President”, he must been thinking of himself. Indeed, if there’s one certainty that emerged in the 2016 elections, it’s a calamitous Obama’s legacy. In the past eight years, the 44th President of The United States added $9.3 trillion to the national debt, implemented an unaffordable Care Act, lost 70.000 businesses on the national soil, watched millions of citizens fall into poverty without taking strong measures, oversaw the rise of Islamic terror attacks in the U.S. and Europe, commissioned the CIA’s support to groups of Islamic rebels in Libya and Syria, commissioned the CIA to orchestrate the western Ukraine’s uprising. Doing so, he jeopardized European stability and U.S. assets on the old continent in the context of an unprecedented- yet very predictable-wave of migration and discredited U.S. influence overseas. At a domestic level, Obama will leave his own country more divided than it’s been in well over 50+ years while presiding over the destruction of the Democrat Party and will be taken responsible for the strongest Republican Party wins in over 80 years… These are just some of the things that Barack Obama will be remembered for. As for now, it is very sad to have to consider that the sore loser is on a rampage, acting more and more like an Islamic terrorist, weeks before the curtains falls. When stabbing Israel- the only democracy in the Middle East and longtime indefectible U.S. friend- in front of the U.N.’s Security Council, he behaves like a terrorist. Wasn’t it already inappropriate enough to interfere in the Israeli elections of March 2015, when he financed an Israeli political organization with American tax payers’ funds in an ignominious attempt to get rid of PM Benjamin Netanyahu? Wasn’t the disaster already lifted to an insane level when concluding an agreement with Iran in July 2015 which allowed the release of over $150 billion in frozen assets under the sanctions as well as it re-vitalized the broken Iranian economy and enabled the theocratic regime to re-double its funding of Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza, the Houthi rebels in Yemen and the brutal Shia militias in Iraq? Well, Obama’s last days speak for himself. Before he leaves, he’s now making sure that U.S. intelligence agencies’ reputations are durably tarnished in the eyes of the world. Back in 2003, one may recall of the U.S. Intelligence’s chiefs giving false evidence and testimonies on WMD in Iraq in front of Congress and the U.N. In some years from now, one shall recall how both a fading President and a Democrat Party in disarray will have orchestrated fake news including fabricated evidence only in a pathetic attempt to avoid an absolute humiliation. Yet, to no avail. The American people are not naïve. “Whenever any form of government becomes destructive, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.” in Declaration of Independence as originally written by Thomas Jefferson, 1776. ME 1:29, Papers 1:315.
As sad as it may seem to Obama, facts are stubborn. Weeks before the presidential election, WikiLeaks started publishing a list of emails objectifying either Hillary Clinton’s private server or the DNC’s were secured enough. One also made clear that Mrs. Clinton had been given many questions prior to the DNC Primaries debate, leaving Bernie Sanders as the tricked guy of a farcical show on behalf History. At that time, and quite surprisingly, no Democrat’s claim emerged protesting against an intolerable Russian’s hacking or an unreliable Julian Assange. Obama actually declared he “couldn’t even imagine of any serious threat on the security of a major American election”, guessing that Donald Trump would probably be the only fool to gossip such rumors after he loses. Well, fate is quite ironical, isn’t it? On Nov 8, around midnight (ET), Donald Trump’s victory became indisputable. So what do you do when caught with both hands in the cookie jar? All of the sudden, a rain of fake news poured on the so called “free world”, from NYC to London, Paris, Madrid, Rome… After a dishonest mainstream media’s coverage of the presidential campaign, a discredited presstitude including WaPo (The Washington Post) started releasing politically oriented delirious articles such as a Blacklist of more than 200 hundred Russian hackers’ sites without providing any solid evidence. Facing threats of legal action, WaPo was forced to add an editor’s note distancing the paper from a dubious website, PropOrNot, which it had initially endorsed as a group of nonpartisan experts on “Russian propaganda”. However, President Putin was soon after accused of having personally influenced the presidential election. The only problem was the lack of any concrete evidence of such allegations. Since the trick didn’t work, this is the moment when Obama chose to use the most despicable means in order to undermine his successor’s credibility and presidency. Once again, he called in the CIA to clean up his own mess. Once again, the CIA’s chief was forced to serve a calamitous President. Why am I so sure of that? Well, let’s be shrewd. Why would the CIA suddenly declare it acquired solid evidence that the Russians have hacked into the election, whereas the President publicly asserted the opposite all through the campaign? Moreover, hours after the CIA’s top official made such an unsupported statement, the FBI’s top head declared: “We didn’t reach out to the same conclusions”. Then who was supposed to be trusted? Some days ago, the 17 U.S. intelligence agencies miraculously agreed on the Russian’s hacking and Vladimir Putin’s personal involvement? Then, why did the U.S. Intelligence postpone a briefing with President-Elect Trump on the ground it was still expecting evidence? And if so, why were 35 Russian diplomats expelled from the U.S. before final and conclusive evidence is supplied? None of these behaviours make sense, leading to the obvious conclusion: The Russian’s hacking conspiracy was only designed to deteriorate Trump and Putin’s relationship. Again, one should be an Islamic terrorist or sympathizer to oppose better ties with Russia. It was also a way to undermine Donald Trump’s victory on the alleged statements of possible hacks into a democratic election process. The 25 pages of the Intelligence report are a sum of vague, unconvincing political bad work rather gathering suspicions than objective elements. Like I said at the beginning of the article, to trust isn’t a matter of faith or patriotism. Undoubtedly, The American people are strong patriots. They like their Intelligence agencies. The issue isn’t the one of patriotism. It is the one which dares to consider no President of a democratic country should ever be entitled to force Intelligence officials to commit a perjury in front of their own Parliament and/or the world, via the U.N. The risk is to throw an absolute discredit on any testimony and furthermore, on Democracy as the best political regime. The risk, was I saying, is what you get in return: a demand of an indisputable proof as exclusive acceptance of Transparency. Something is durably broken between the American people and the DNC. It is responsible for its own failures, and that’s why it really hurts. However, “a drowning man will catch at a straw”, won’t he? The old saying says it all. Here’s where all the Russian’s hacking deceptive tale lies.
Still, there is another significant dimension surrounding the DNC email scandal. Soon after the elections, Bernie Sanders supporters initiated a class action lawsuit against DNC and the former DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz at the southern Federal District Court in Florida. They pointed “fraud, negligent misrepresentation, deceptive conduct, injust enrichment, breach of fiduciary duty and negligence”. Case Number 16-cv-61511-WJZ. Subsequently to the release of the emails, Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced to resign. The relevant lawsuit was delivered by Shawn Lucas acting on behalf of the plaintiffs on July 1, 2016. One month later, Shawn Lucas was found dead in his flat and the case was dismissed without any further consideration. With the exception of a report in London’s Daily Mail pointing to several mysterious deaths of Democrat Party campaign organizers and activists, no media coverage of Lucas’s death was published. Here’s an extract of the pre-cited report in Daily Mail, August 23, 2016. To have a quick look is worthwhile:
“‘The Clinton body count’ is a long list of people tied to the Clintons who have died in suspicious circumstances since the early 1990s. The alleged death toll is in dispute but some claim more than 50 people connected with the former President and First Lady have died in mysterious circumstances […] Shawn Lucas, 38, a lawyer who supported Bernie Sanders was found dead on August 2 on the bathroom floor of his Washington DC apartment. Just a month earlier, he had attempted to serve papers on Wasserman-Schultz in a fraud that alleges the Party had unfairly favored Hillary Clinton in the Primaries over Sanders […] Joe Montano, a former DNC Chairman with in-depth knowledge of Hillary Clinton’s campaign has also been named as on the unofficial list after he died from what authorities say was a heart attack on July 25- the day the DNC started. Seth Conrad Rich, who was the Operations Director for Voter Expansion for the DNC was found murdered on July 10. His death initially appeared like a robbery gone wrong but his mother-Mary Rich- claims that nothing was taken from her son, who was found with two shots in his back”.
Then, the question is mere simple: Would you elect a person with such a questionable number of mysterious deaths in her close entourage as the next mayor of NYC? Would you further trust a candidate who once wrote: “We need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to Isis and other radical Sunni groups in the region”. In other words, the US government knew Middle East nations were financially supporting ISIS but lied while repeatedly arguing such support was isolated to “some rogue princes using their cut of the oil money to do whatever they like”. In the meantime, the Clinton’s foundation was fueled with millions from those charming countries. At the end of the day, after having created an absolute chaos in the Middle East and signed the worst deal ever with Iran, the terrorist Obama will proudly leave office with the Jewish-Christian world now facing a countdown to a massive disaster. The Jewish State shall never surrender. May all the men of good will be reunited against political Islam. Both the Americans and the Russians fall into this category.
For those interested in the Iranian deal, here are some substantive details:
A so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan for Action (JCPOA) relates specifically to the dismantling of all sanctions on Iran’s banking, insurance, metals, aviation, shipping, arms and general trade markets. The JCPOA has also committed the E3/EU+3 nations to supporting Iran’s crumbling economy financially with export credit guarantees, grants, financial assistance and even loans to the Government of Iran. In addition, all “persons, entities and bodies” previously banned from travelling to the West have been restored in their full rights. But more ominously, page 12 can be found a list of Iranian banks, petro-chemical companies, sanction-evaders and individuals including General Ghasem Soleymani, the notorious Commander of the terrorist Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). Soleymani has a long history of supporting terrorism and has the blood of many Americans and Europeans on his hands. However, according to the terms of the JCPOA, this charming person is now able to travel at will to Europe and the United States. In the section called ‘General’ issues/Nuclear Security’, an astounding clause compel the E3/EU+3 nations as well as “possibly other states, as appropriate to cooperate with Iran on the implementation of nuclear security guidelines and practices involving strengthening Iran’s ability to protect against and respond to nuclear security threats including sabotage, as well as to enable effective and sustainable nuclear security and physical protection systems.” In plain English, the West together with China and Russia are now committed to protecting Iran’s nuclear facilities from an Israeli attack- even in the case of a major Iranian threat. Lastly, to add insult to injury, the JCPOA agreement commits “Senior Government officials” of the E3/EU+3 nations and Iran to “make every effort to support the successful implementation of this JCPOA including in their respective public statements”. Back in July 2015, the ink was hardly dry on the Vienna’s agreement before Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei proudly declared in Teheran: “Whether this scheme is approved or disapproved, we will never stop supporting our friends in the region and the people of Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Bahrain and Lebanon. Even after this deal, our policy towards the arrogant US will not change. Our policy in the region is 180 degrees different from the US”, he told an audience of hardliners who cried: “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!”. In clear, Obama has covered ISIS’ Sunni Islam funding (Saudi Arabia, Qatar and various over Islamic monarchies) as well as he’s allowed Shia Iran to become wealthier and stronger than ever.
