STAND WITH HILLARY: “GRAB HIM BY THE BALLOT, VOTE!”




Morality can be so interesting to watch when a very immoral person like Donald Trump is playing the morality police. It has been a turn of events since the last debate—when the Donald learned he was losing terribly, he resorted to the final deep end drive into the conquest for the bottom of the barrel—his campaign has been always about impure rhetoric but this time, he didn’t pretend for a second, what I don’t understand though is why a man would pride in being remembered for the creepiest things ever said for a man as old as 70 years. I have seen the very big hypocrites of the republican party ditch their party leader on the side of the road albeit I can’t fathom why and how they stood on his side this long—if there’s one sure thing, putting up with the stupidity that tags along being in the Donald’s cult is a twenty four-hour exercise equivalence, it’s a very tough place to be: full of vile utterances and always denying facts even understood by a five year old. This article has so many choice words for the Donald but simply put, “Grab him by the ballot, Go Vote on November 8th”—this way, the Donald will lose “bigly, believe me”.

At this point in time, we are aware of two candidates have been in the race, though not limited to them, but majorly them; the very much temperamentally fit and well prepared Mrs. Clinton and the epically unprepared Donald Trump have finally displayed their resume in the last job interview [PS: the Donald as a clinical narcissist and con artist] unto the American people—for certainly, without a shadow of a doubt, Donald Trump has displayed how this election is only and only about him and not the American people: the good news, he is not the only candidate and far from winning, Hillary Clinton is going to win this and I can bet my bottom dollar; it’s going to be one of the most recorded landslide wins in American Political History, if not the best ever. We have learned through the campaign and today night that Donald Trump will only praise the media and all else only when it is in agreement with his ego—if you find anywhere where he doesn’t have issues with inconvenient truths, call me out to set a straight apology: Google; ‘Donald Trump lying again’, tell me what you find.

Aristotle had it right, “when they lose debate, they resort to insults”, we saw that and have seen it through the campaigns—when, and whenever the Donald loses, he turns on the whiny button straight away. It’s hard to explain the narcissism or cognitive dissonance that comes with words from the Donald—even when he knew he was lieing,he falsely claimed there isn’t anyone with respect for women that he has, just a few minutes onward, he called Sec Clinton a nasty woman. Not to ignore and very important to remember, he proudly pushed and shoved the “bad hombre” stereotype. His completely unhinged campaign rhetoric has been and may still be about insulting women, Mexicans, Hispanics and Muslims among many places and other important people inclusive of the sitting president of the United States.

Earlier on the trails, the Donald has put it succinctly inelegantly that if he loses the election, this is going to be a very big recorded waste of time for him and the money, that says a lot. The Donald forgets and has often forgotten that its always not a win everywhere he goes—well, he has pulled those stunts before with the bankruptcies but his very unfortunate part of the aftermath of this bizarre election cycle is that his words are going to determine his place next, if you ask me; that place should be prison and for reasonable years—to spread the sheets even here on why I just wrote that would be asking me to show you a moist corner in the ocean. He has run a campaign of divisive rhetoric and conspiracy theories and also taken his dirty hands to signaling a chaotic revolution once the results aren’t in his favor, which I am confident they will not: asked at the first debate whether he would concede defeat, he charitably signaled yes. Maybe because he was still a little competitive, but as things turned sour onwards because of his lame performances entwined with his asinine rhetoric; he chose the answer tailored towards suspense whiles proclaiming, “not necessarily so”.
Those who have learned from [and paid attention to]  the mistakes of History keep looking at the ugly political dictators whose characterization is so beautifully played by the Donald—the name for an example is Hitler, who hunted down the Jews and everyone that was different from him, even the political dissidents. By Donald’s rhetoric, the peace loving and constitution-bending American and world citizens find themselves deeply troubled with what he has begun spewing throughout his entire campaign—extending to what put him in the political spotlight, the birther remarks against president Obama to be specific. Vogue magazine in their endorsement of Mrs. Clinton couldn’t have said it better: “…..and yet two words give us hope: madam President. A woman won the vote in 1920.It has taken nearly a century to bring us to the brink of a woman leading our country for the first time. Let’s put this election behind us and become the America we want to be: optimistic, forward-looking, and modern. Let’s head to the polls on Tuesday, November 8th, and vote”.

I want to refer to book I read a few years ago that made so much sense to me, FLIRTING WITH THE WORLD By John White. On Pg. 117(153), he writes on the cult of self-worship: “I am grateful to Professor Paul Vitz for alerting me to the specific dangers of this particular fashion in psychotherapy in his book Psychology as religion (Eerdmans, 1977).Vitz, a New York psychologist, coins the term selfism, by which he means preoccupation of one’s own ego, one’s personal fulfillment and the pampering one demands in the name of self-worth”—unless you have been in the cave, Donald’s candidacy and his entire life singularly looks out for mostly what serves his ego, he is a sure-fire egomaniac: he will lie to the teeth as long  as he can save face with his ugly lies. Quoting CNN commentator Van Jones,as he quoted LL Cool J’s words from his first album(at the third debate): “he lied about the lies that he lied about”, that is Donald Trump, anything goes as long as it doesn’t bruise his ego.

The phenomenal first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, was very accurate when she was addressing Hillary’s opponent’s lewd remarks on women: “I can tell you the men in my life do not talk about women this way. To dismiss this as locker room talk is an insult to decent men everywhere”, she went ahead to passionately talk about how Mrs. Clinton ‘embodies so many of the values that we try hard to teach our young people’. She went ahead to say, “we simply cannot endure this, or expose our children to this any longer— “we are drowning in it,” she said at one point— “In our heart of hearts, we all know that if we let Hillary’s opponent win this election, then we are sending a clear message to our kids that everything they’re hearing and seeing is perfectly O.K to humiliate women. We are validating it,”—we need to recover from our shock and depression and do what women do and have always done in this country, Mrs.       Obama said. “We need you to roll up your sleeves; we need to get to work”.

I think it comes with so much irony seeing Hillary’s opponent get so whiny about the unfairness of the media, the real truth is that that is this entire false claim is played-out fiction; if there is anyone that has had an easy ride with the media, its Donald Trump. At this point in time;therefore, I will take my shot to call out Hillary’s opponent to what he is and has been all his adult life. I cannot exhaust the resources of the dictionary to get the real words but I will give it an attempt: Donald Trump is a loathsome reptile, demi-human archbeast,lilly-livered cynical rogue ;an object of disgust, of abhorrence, loathing everything except himself—always going by the chorus[his best signature line], “I am the best at this, believe me”—if I am to believe anything about the Donald, he is nothing but a thoughtless low brain buffoon completely insensitive and devoid of empathy or reason. I am leaving this video here that beautifully compares the Donald to some of African dictators.


Before Sec Clinton declared she was running, I wrote a letter to President Obama praising both he and Hillary for their maturity post the 2008 Democratic Party nominations. I wrote with intent and sound facts one of those articles I still admire, Hillary Clinton will do the job. I have written very many articles since I launched the Ugandan team that has been trolling the Donald throughout the campaign. Millions of Americans that have read my work keep saying that there is a lot of truth in what I present to the world albeit 2 people in 100 have called me Vladimir Putin, accusing me of meddling into American Politics. See, one of the recent articles wrote here, I did quote part of Thomas Paine’s work and I will certainly use his words in this paragraph or more. Like I have said, nobody has been paying me a dime for this and I want to set the record straight, it has been and will be me supporting the right track of History—and yes, if History permits, I don’t mind making History with Hillary Clinton as first female President of the United States. The many things I have learned through life the last 27 years I have been here keep informing me and reminding me these forever meaningful words from Thomas Paine: “the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap; we esteem too lightly; it is dearness that only gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow”—that is why I am and have been with her. There is no quidproquo in this but anything that tags along as reward for saying the truth as it is from millions of miles away is welcome; her story inspires mine and I would love to see mine inspire someone else.

It is important to remember the civics class lessons that I doubt the Donald ever had; and if he had them is utterly willfully ignorant and fantastically stupid by default. Part of what I know from the real American History is that there was a time the slaves built the magnificent White House; and to this, there was a time women were not allowed to vote. I want to us to pause and reflect broadly on two things—it took so many years for the first black couple to live in this white House, that is as I wrote with illustration, the eight golden years of black love in the white House—And I emphatically spread the sheets on how remarkably important this precedes the forthcoming presidency of the first female POTUS,Hillary Clinton: what this says to us is that everything always has to happen at a time and no one can stop the idea whose time has come. I found myself a phrase that I has been handy the last eight years of President Obama: “hope in the face of difficulty; hope in the face of uncertainty: the audacity of hope”—what Donald Trump is doing by thinking he can talk down the democracy that was hard-earned by strong men and women of America, claiming it’s up to him to decide whether he concedes or not is a very wild joke, he should pay for it.

What Hillary Clinton did with her conclusive remarks at the final debate, and what she continued to say at the charity dinner where the Donald was booed is what a modern American president looks like. She, while at the debate made a call to everyone to go and vote by what they believe will keep America safe and at the charity dinner; she eloquently put it: “we need to get better at finding ways to disagree on matters of policy while agreeing on questions of decency”. It seems, perfectly it turns out, the Donald sees his presidency as the “second coming” and he is savior and king; unfortunately of the con.But hey, America and the whole universe deserve(s)better, I am counting on Americans to go out there and give each of these cards the rewards they have worked for—borrowing Van Jones’ words on the Donald, “You can’t polish this turd”.God bless America and the whole world.

PRESIDENTIAL & TEMPERAMENTALLY FIT: “HILLARY CLINTON”.

I want to begin with what Donald said about Hillary as he openly endorsed her for the job: “she is a fighter and she never quits, I admire that about her”. The last many three decades of the republican witch-hunt on the Clinton family have molded the incoming 45th of the United States, Hillary Clinton: she and her husband have been through the fire but have still soared so high, proof positive that nothing baffles the achemes of the enemy like a composed soul. Being a Clinton maybe hard but might as well be one of the most rewarding experiences in self-composure and self-discovery. As I said in the first debate commentary; for those who had doubts, she mopped the floor with an ignorant bigot—she did it again and we are proud of her.
 
Beautiful meme.Source:web
The last couple of days have been filled with the most sickening news of the republican flag bearer’s advice; “Grab their p***y”; seeing many republicans un-endorse their nominee and billions of people around the world have the republican party for a laughing stock for electing a bigot and outright misogynist: there is no political figure who represents the failure of the capitalist western system more drastically than Donald Trump. The abnegation of humane values and public decency—the apostle of greed and the king of con; the last debate and this one, America is aware a man who thinks the tax-paying citizens are dumb, unlike his “smart act” of evading taxes, would be president if they didn’t take his thievery seriously.Mrs.Clinton didn’t mince words at the debate, she said, and I believe her totally: “What we saw and heard on Friday was Donald Trump talking about women: what he thinks about women, what he does to women, and he has said that video doesn’t represent who he is; but I think its clear to everyone who heard it, it represents exactly who he is”—that’s why he is headed for a landslide loss on November 8th, GO VOTE!!

I have wracked my mind on what and how I would address the way Donald Trump until I was reminded of an old adage; “a stiff apology is a second insult”. What Donald Trump did and has continuously done is try to find a comparative advantage over the ISIS and he is dumb enough to suppose that makes a better candidate—he has to remember he is not running with the ISIS but Hillary Clinton. Yet he goes offevery time he is questioned into the assault on women. He has said again and again; “ate least I am not as bad as ISIS”.who does that? Is that even a speaking point?—he has run a campaign of hate on a whole religion of Islam and yet even desperately wants to compare himself with the acts of the fruits of his good work, remember his hate rhetoric has aided in recruiting fighters.

Mrs. Clinton succinctly put it before the Donald saying and reminding Donald Trump about the true American creed; though not directly saying it, she said: “We have had Muslims since George Washington. We have had religious freedom and liberty through the years. Religious tests are completely unwise and dangerous. We are working with the Muslims to fight ISIS; wecan’t turn our backs on them”. I have not for once understood whether this man, Donald Trump ever listens to his proposals but of course the answer is not one to struggle with, he doesn’t but just spews whatever he comes across in his mentally deranged mind. 

Now this goes to the bible thumpers, here is a message: As I wrote earlier in STRONGER TOGETHER; “Trump wants us to follow the brits in a corner of isolation—by race, religion and trade. His philosophy, the rant besotted boob making things up in public, is anti-American. In rejecting our former colonial masters, we threw off monarchy, the class system and a state religion. We opened our doors, to all nations, all religions and all opinions”—If we read the bible with you, again, we settle it.Genesis 13:17: “Go; walk through the length and breadth of the land for I am giving it to you”.

I have shared my work with millions of Americans and I have been read by billions all over the world. I at times get some of those mean comments asking me to stay in Uganda and not talk about America.Well, I know quite something about the United States and my vantage point of view is strictly from an informed point of view; I am not a pen monger; I study before I write. I have had Sec Clinton call out Donald Trump on taxing the rich and his isolationist proposes. Quoting from a legendary writer who shares the same story as mine, Thomas Paine. In his letter to the addressers that he wrote in 1792 as quoted in the complete writings of Thomas Paine pg.32 (696): 

“If I expose fraud and imposition of monarchy and every species of hereditary government—to lessen the expression of taxes—to propose plans for the education of helpless infancy, and the comfortable support of the aged and distressed—to endeavor to conciliate nations to each other—to promote universal peace, civilization and commerce—to break the chains of political superstition and raise degraded men to proper rank; if these things be libelous, let me live the life of a libeller,and my name of libeller be engraven upon my tomb”.

Donald Trump and his campaign have been singing mud at Sec Clinton, as did the republican select committee over her mails, yet didn’t find anything to pin her down. At the first and second debate, she emphatically said she is sorry for having used a private email address but the Donald, who never apologizes for anything is quick to play the moral police time and again.Well,she she had some words for him and they should sink deep, Donald: “I have been privy to classified information as a senator; where I was voted overwhelmingly,twice.I am careful with classified information because I know what it is”; do you read that?Don't mess with the wrong girl, Donald.

Myself & my models.Source:here
I wrote; in the tribute/memoir I wrote for President Obama & Michelle, whiles quoting Clare Forlan: ““For all the hype surrounding the high profile attacks led by Trey Growdy,the chair of house select committee in Benghazi, republicans have so far failed to unearth capable of sinking Clinton’s political prospect”. Now if there is anything that makes me sick; it’s the false equivalence rhetoric that Donald that some people peddle in to slide Mrs. Clinton down the gutter—I am done with the she is flawed rhetoric; ‘the she is the lesser of the two evils rhetoric’. Listen up: You’re flawed—i am flawed, Barack Obama is flawed; so is Michelle, Bernie Sanders,you can bring on more people to the list. But hey;the most important difference is that they have served the public with their flawed selves in ways we haven’t. What Hillary Clinton’s campaign has been and still is about is; an intelligent woman who is here to save us from a narcissistic sociopath—I am not just talking about America. I am talking about the whole world. I saw Donald Trump fall into a trap; I don’t know whether anyone noticed. A man whose campaign has been dressed in “I am the best; I am loved by women; I am a smart man, list goes on—on hearing Mrs. Clinton say she loves his kids didn’t want to miss endorsing her, if you remember how the article opens.Well,that true, she is what America needs right now. First watch this Open letter to Donald Trump:

Since its less than a month to the election day, I will fetch something from an article I wrote earlier on the joy that comes with having the Clintons in the white House for the second time;I will offer President Obama’s words captured therein as a re-enforcer for her remarks on fixing the Obama Care and how she has been in the trenches fighting for women, not just in America but the whole world: “I came down to Charlotte today because I believe in Hillary, and I am asking you to have her back in November. This election isn’t really a choice between left and right or the Democratic or Republican. This is a choice between whether we are going to cling to some imaginary past or move into the future. This is about whether we have America that works for everybody, or just those at the top. Hillary has been fighting for years—fighting for working families and the kids, and fighting to make sure everybody in this country has a fair shot (and she has got the scars to prove it).She believes that America’s future is ours to shape, and she’s got what it takes to lead us forward .She understands that we make our own destiny, and that we are always the strongest together. I couldn’t agree more. And that’s why I am with her”.

In the recent article on the blog, MY AMERICAN JOURNEY, where I envision a Hillary Clinton presidency as the last ounce of hope—because of the nightmarish reality that tags along a Donald Trump presidency, I was crystal clear; as so many have emphatically said and as Hillary Clintons message of a united path goes, America is stronger as one (STRONGER TOGETHER), thanks to you President Obama for that wonderful emphasis.Dont boo, go vote, let’s go and win this election.
