|The woman we celebrate,History Maker,Hillary Rodham Clinton|
After #Day1 of the DNC in PHILLY, I waited for the day of speeches from President Bill Clinton,President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Chelsea Clinton & most importantly the next President of the United States, Hillary Rodham Clinton. If there is anything that has been so refreshing, it is the moments at the Democratic convention. What the convention has significantly painted to me is that Love always Trumps Hate, this a going to be a well-built case in addition to my first endorsement for Mrs. Clinton—insight through insight, pay attention and at the end, we will go to the voting booth in November and launch the woman called for the job to the white house, it’s been 240 solid years before America did that: it’s about time to realize that Yes, [when there are no ceilings, the sky is the limit],read on.
|Hillary Clinton as she gave her acceptance speech|
Democratic Party Presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton is now the new definition of History; President Obama did that earlier and I am glad he is opening doors to yet another Historic moment in American Politics: I have written this earlier, Dr.King and the founding fathers must be smiling down on us up there in Heaven. At this point, I would like to go ahead and defend my claim with evidence of the healing words from her historic speech: “our country’s motto is e pluribus Unum: ‘out of many, we are’. Will we stick together? Well, I heard Donald Trump’s answer last week at his convention. He wants to divide us—from the rest of the world, and from each other. He is betting the perils of today’s world will blind us to unlimited promise. He has taken the Republican Party a long way…..from ‘morning in America’ to ‘midnight in America’. Well, a great democratic president came up with the perfect rebuke to Trump more than eighty years ago during a much more perilous time: the only thing to fear is fear itself”.
After Hillary’s Historic speech, President Obama tweeted these words: "Great speech.She is tested.She is ready.She neve quits.That's why she should be our next @POTUS. (she will get the handle too) "- and they are raw facts, as your own face in the mirror—Hillary Clinton has been besmirched through the years (by republicans) calling her all sorts of things but it is very clear that however much they have tried to taint her the evil one, she always emerges winner: Do these republicans ever question themselves into the national creed—IN GOD WE TRUST [?]—the Psalmist put the words very succinctly: a righteous man may have many troubles but the Lord delivers him from them all”,Mrs. Clinton will certainly rise against the storms as ever, because; she was raised so well with well-learned lessons of rowing with the current.
I often have conversation with some Ugandans here about the ongoing Presidential race in the United States, it was until recently (after a conversation with one of Trump’s supporters) that I discovered that certainly those who try to weigh down Hillary Clinton’s career achievements aren’t just hating but are rather ignorant of facts.I asked this guy whether he has read any of Trump’s ‘I am Donald Trump books’and he said NO.I again asked, have you read any of Hillary Clinton’s books? He again said No.I paused, took a wry smile and I told him in earnest: “I say this in no disrespect but you are supporting Trump out of ignorance”. Honestly, if you are aware of Mrs. Clinton’s hard work, you can’t be mistaken about her impressive resume: she is absolutely phenomenal!
|Sen Obama(then) & Hillary Clinton in 2008 after she had lost|
This photo of President Obama [then Democratic nominee, after beating Hillary in primaries, back in 2008 after a tough campaign].The Political maturity of these two beautiful souls should set the tone for reconciliation between those who are stubbornly not yet on Hillary’s train. Those who wear blinders to what happened in 2008 are the real reason a demagogue (Donald Trump) at times surges in the polls sometimes; making a false impression that he actually has votes on the ground: yes, like President Obama said anything is possible but America is known to be a place where sanity has taken over insanity the recent 50 years, I don’t want to believe for a second that the American people will empower the dreariness of the dark ages with a Donald Trump Presidency.
As Sen. Elizabeth Warren eloquently said, it is totally accurate that indeed America has been served with ugliness before—a ‘plate’ whose stories are not good to reminisce about, the memories are sad, that hate and bigotry the Trump campaign has to be stopped right ahead of time:when your car is headed down a cliff, the last thing you need is a quiet flagman. I am doing this full-throttle endorsement with intent to cover all Hillary Clinton stands for and unearth the lies, fear monger and bigotry that precedes Donald Trump’s divisive rhetoric.
For Donald Trump, he says and he thinks and shamelessly strongly proclaims: “I alone can save you and make America great again”—whatever that means. I do not know but I can assure it is nothing but the true representation of an egomaniac, trust me on that. One of the speakers at the DNC convention was so kind to Trump and offered him a free copy of the Constitution, WE THE PEOPLE; he should take that offer rather seriously. He needs to first go back home and read theconstitution, maybe after that he will run a better campaign. I know he has said it before that he doesn’t need forgiveness from Jesus Christ/God but going ahead to blaspheme their supreme deity saying that he alone can save America shows how ignorant he is, honestly: he is busy playing the American God and his cult is stupidly following, indeed pity the nation whose people are sheep.
What if Mrs. Clinton took on Bill Maher’s Piece of advice?
For Bill Maher, he has proposed to Mrs. Clinton to drop the child gloves and run as the ‘Notorious HRC’, this clip has made laugh through and through; even as I type these words, I am still laughing. Well, the republicans have proven beyond reasonable doubt that they will never stop witch-hunting Hillary Clinton, even when it puts the sovereignty of America(the strongest nation on earth) at stake. The bromance between Donald Trump isn’t just disastrous to those who swim along with it but to the independence of America, that was hard-won many years ago. The other day Donald Trump was cheering on Russia (Vladimir Putin, to be specific) on a well done, calling them to do even more. This is a guy who has once said he isn’t even interested in the presidency, that he would even give it to his VP after winning [if he ever did anyways, just warning you of the divisive and completely gone bonkers rhetoric], if you haven’t been in the cave and know how asinine this guy can be; I am officially telling you to be scared and keep him away.
Yes, America Ferrera couldn’t have put it any better, because the raw facts are that his policy proposals are nothing but empty rhetoric against women, future immigrants, job creation, education reforms and the unity that is in America today: that actually makes her absolutely great against his sound-tough guy speech based on empty-headed proposals. It is thus imperative for everyone on the right track of history to listen aloud to what Ferreira is saying and what so many responsible and trusted people have said over time. The Donald Trump threat is real and if America doesn’t see it and keep in shape with the lessons learned from the mistakes of history, hate and bigotry can have its way back in, again: a very terrible thing to imagine!
A message from Uncle Joe & Chelsea Clinton, Hillary’s daughter, to the girls and youth.
Vice President Joe Biden was so eloquent in his speech at the convention—Joe never minces words and certainly wouldn’t miss making his mark at a very important occasion, celebrating the historic nomination of the first woman presidential nominee for a major party in the United States History. [Allow me to pause briefly and first say it again, congratulations Mrs. Clinton; I love you so very much for I know we are stronger together].Back to where were at; Chelsea Clinton passionately and adoring talked about her mother, in her own words: “And every day I spend as Charlotte and Aidan’s mother, I think about my own mother, my wonderful, thoughtful, hilarious mother. My earliest memory is my mother picking me up after I had fallen, giving me a big hug, and reading me Goodnight Moon. From that moment…to this one. Every single moment I have of my mother is that whatever else maybe happening in her life—she is always, always there for me”. She went on to say (important to note): “there is something else my mother taught me: public service is about public service….. [Onward, I capture this, read on]—people ask me how she does it all the time. How she keeps going amid the fury of Politics. Here is how: it’s because she never forgets who she is fighting for”.
|Respecting women at an early age:off the web|
If anything should speak a million words to the Donald, it is this photo—it’s a call to Donald Trump to respect women; and actually say to him loudly that he should have learned that as a young child albeit it’s not yet too late [even when his record of wives shows impossible odds].This photo brings tears to my eyes every time I think about Donald Trump; it is one of the photos I shared on my facebook page(taken off the web) to show black pride last year. I want Donald Trump to take very good lessons—while says he wants to send blacks, Mexicans and Muslims away; he should know there aren’t necessary angels but they are way better than his divisive rhetoric. I have said in the early paragraphs America has had her share of ugliness and shouldn’t accommodate anything that looks like it: Donald Trump is recruiting troops for reinstating white supremacy, judging by his very asinine comments every day, he has to be stopped in time. I am glad the Planned Parenthood boss, Cecile Richards, made a very good promise whiles endorsing Hillary Clinton: “Mr. Trump, come this November, women are going to be more than an inconvenience.Because women are going to be the reason you are not elected president”
Mark Cuban whiles endorsing Hillary Clinton didn’t mince words, like Michael Bloomberg, he knows a conman when he sees one. The special thing about it though, he sees a ‘jagoff’ in Donald Trump: “Leadership is not yet yelling and screaming and intimidating. You know what we call a person like that in Pittsburg? A‘jagoff’.Is there any bigger jag off in the world like Donald Trump?”. If I am to answer that question Mark asked there, No there isn’t any bigger jag off than Donald Trump in the world. Deepak Chopra writes the best description and eventual end of Donald Trump in America’s shadow: The Real Secret of Donald J.Trump: “the shadow compounds all the dark impulses—hatred, aggression, sadism, sexual transgression—that is hidden out of sight. The name originated with Carl Jung, but its basic origin came from Freud’s insight that our psyches are dualistic, sharply divided between the conscious and unconscious. The rise of Civilization is a tribute to how well we obey our conscious mind and suppresses our unconscious side. But what hides in the shadows will out”
|A Donald & Jill Stein Meme,taken off the web|
What does the Bernie or Bust Groupie/Jill Stein need to know?
The truth of the matter is that Jill Stein is hurting her hard work with Bernie as she lets her ego sail her along; I am aware and have seen Hillary Clinton personally promise to take up the most teething issues offered by Bernie on the campaign trail—making this a historic progressive platform within the Republican Party. What Silverman said at the convention was actually very perfect: “the Bernie or bust group, you are being ridiculous”—to this, I could borrow President Obama’s words: “Don’t boo, vote”; what I know though, Bernie didn’t at once tell you to help a demagogue take the Presidency, I am talking about Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders rather wanted to have progressive ideas taken aboard: which have been re-structured into Hillary’s agenda, what else do you want folks?
Hillary Clinton has had a very great list of endorsements—from people whose discipline in personhood and human decency I doubt doubt but as you can see [just a few on that picture],it is telling.It reminds of an article I read some months ago on the republican sin of endorsement:speaking of the republican sin of endorsement,take a look at Donald Trump’s running mate’s earlier twitter war with his current boss., that’s what we talk about when we talk about crazy stuff. Unlike Bernie Sanders who acknowledges the differences he has had with Hillary, that have paved way for the most progressive democratic platform ever (the good news), Mike Pence now singularly says ‘Make America great Again’ with no Remorse. Can you imagine?—cognitive dissonance at its best right there in Trump’s triangle.
Albert Camus in the ‘Century of Fear’ writes something that best settles it all and I hope it sets the tone rather perfectly for the air of finality of this endorsement. In the 1984 article published in ‘Combat’, he wrote: “the years we have just gone through have killed something in us. And that something is the old confidence man had in himself, which always led him to believe that he could elicit human reactions from another man if he spoke to him in the language of humanity. We have seen men lie, degrade, deport, torture—and each time it was not possible to persuade those who did these things not to do them, because they were sure of themselves and because one can’t persuade those who did these things not to do them because one can’t persuade an abstraction; the representative of an ideology. Mankind’s dialogue has just come to an end. And naturally, a man who can’t be persuaded is a man to be feared”
|Message to Donald Trump from the 'explainer in chief'.|
I have wished a million times Donald Trump were running with President Obama, being a very good example of the people he minimizes a lot alongside women, Muslims and Mexicans, he would have put the Donald in his place pretty well (as Mrs. Clinton is doing equally) .I love President Obama and Michelle so much. I am saddened that he is leaving the white House before I meet him and his beautiful family—maybe it will happen even when he has left, he taught me with his 2004 DNC speech as I wrote in my second letter, the audacity of hope beats the cynicism: I have lived each day hoping and believing that we shall meet and I still strongly believe we shall. Someone laughed it off when I announced I am writing my full endorsement for Hillary Clinton but yeah, that person doesn’t know a thing about the rewards of hard work, President Obama & his beautiful Michelle Obama, President Clinton & his intelligent wife Hillary Clinton have taught me that with their lives—I am glad they know I am grateful, forever and sincerely. America is certainly great and the sound-tough rhetoric of Donald Trump shouldn’t be a blinder to her greatness.Yes, as Hillary Clinton eloquently said in her acceptance speech: “a man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons”—that’s why #TeamHillaryUganda[Grace AbahoSr,OwenErima&Peri Harris] is with her and we endorse her for president of the United states. Go to the voting booth and make History, God bless America and the whole world
