History Relived?


TRUMP aka NERO

Three months into the first term of the Trump Presidency the World is witnessing an erosion of confidence in the foundational institutions of American civil society from its Office of the President through to and including, the institution of the Free Press.

Some have likened Trump’s short-term, to date, as the 45th President of the United States as a train wreck in the making. The President’s short bursts, often unsubstantiated, of claims of Fake News by the Mainstream media outlets, often referred to as the `Fifth Column’ to a Democracy, is undermining the Publics confidence in what is true and accurate reporting.  The claims, often communicated late at night or early morning via Twitter, strangely correlate to reports conveyed by Breitbart News and Infowars; Internet-based, alternate News channels. These News media outlets cater to those within the broader community steeped in conspiratorial theories and captioned in their reports such phrases as `information the government doesn’t want you to know‘. Too, the audiences to these channels are widely known to be mostly Caucasian and Christian, religious belief.

The fires of suspicion and mistrust this early into the Trump Administration often fanned by biased pundits and celebrity personalities keen on advancing the strongly right-wing agenda bolstered by a Republican majority in Congress, Senate and now, the Supreme Court, combined with the substantial undermining of the Free Press; one has to question whether this will be the spark of insecurity that ignites the demise of the Republic that is the United States.

History has a cruel way of repeating itself if for no other reason then to attempt to teach Humanity the ills of its ways, and until such becomes the case; the equivalent to Rome of the past, a Nation’s self-annihilation may happen but once again.

Last Human Standing


 

world divide

This poem, originally written back in 2012 in response to social and geopolitical issues occurring at that tumultuous time, upon review, seems more appropriate to the current state of world affairs with the inauguration of the 45th President Donald J. Trump. 

Unlike the fears garnered when the poem was first written; what seems poised on the horizon to erupt, due to increased nationalism not only in the United States but across Western Europe, should instill a true sense foreboding reminiscent of the pre-World War II era.

Unfortunately, humanity once again appears to fall victim to the machinations of the pathological designs of true power: 

Last Human Standing

Falling deeper into the abyss of our making
This life on Earth seems forsaken
Though remedy of solution viably in-hand
But ignored, for reasons becoming clearer to understand

Global power held by the unseen elite
Are determined to manifest humanity’s defeat
They will not rest until their destructive plan is complete
Instigated with common people fighting each other in the street

Economic collapse is their efficient tool to instigate
Knowing empty belles’ are much easier to infuriate
Whilst poised in their ivory towers left to masturbate
While goon-squad militarized police, the uprisings, mitigate

It would take a fool’s mind not to see what is happening
The civilized structure of the last hundred years is set for collapsing
Then by their design a New Order for civilization is ready for hatching
To render a commoner’s life to impoverishment by servitude, ever-lasting

These are not words to echo the cry of humanity’s impending defeat
It is a call to recognize what is about to come and its receipt
Demanding if it is to happen – common people take their stand on the street
Poised ready to fight until the last Human standing on their feet

Etched To The Bone


 

WSH_SM4C

Surprising, this poem, written back in 2008, finds a fitting place reflecting the current day’s experience; the unfolding of events that speak to a darker time that, potentially, lies ahead for all humanity and its implication for generations that are yet to follow:

Etched To The Bone

My mind spins

From the chaos echoing

From the choir

Disaster of faith

In the fabric of mankind

Can the deluge

Grow even higher?

 

When will it stop?

When will the end begin?

The pain that I am feeling

Is in need of a pill that can win.

 

Factions in every corner

Spewing the ill

Of the coming way

Offering nothing in return

But explaining

How we will righteously pay

 

Bleed for the children

For they know not

What it is

Tomorrow’s growing darkness

Is the inheritance to be given?

What in the morning

Will they say?

 

Oh what sadness

Is being etched into the bone

For generations to come

This ailing condition

Will call it: home!

Future Of Humankind


fg

December 28, 2016, United States Secretary of State, John Kerry’s seventy-minute-plus speech addressing the Israeli and the Palestinian State is a futile, last-minute attempt to bring resolve, a peace accord, to a seemingly unresolvable, decades-long conflict. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is quick to admonish Mr. Kerry’s remarks by advocating in the eight years of President Obama’s administration, it has failed to recognize the true plight of the Israeli Peoples. The Prime Minister then went further to seal the future for continued conflict in the region by putting his faith in the incoming President-Elect Donald Trump’s administration to provide the needed political, military and financial support for Israel to achieve its true and ultimate goal: a One-State solution.

Though the public position of the Netanyahu government is to move toward a Two-State solution the illegal expansion of settlements amongst other illegal Israeli maneuvers, remarked by Kerry, is evidence that this is not so. These obvious contradictions in policy supported by members of the Israel Knnest fly in the face of the United Nations Security Council and the Arab League of Nations which advocate for a Two-State solution in recognition of the Palestinian State and the Peoples of Palestine.

The tone of the incoming Trump administration comprised of hardball, militaristic, win at any cost attitudes; pledging undying support for Israel to achieve its unofficial goals to a One-State solution absolutely guarantees an escalation in acts of terror coming from apartheid occupied Gaza and West Bank and supporting factions in Jordan and Lebanon. To further exacerbate tensions in the already conflict-mired Middle-East region and of a broader concern for Israel; the growing influence of Iran. Which, under normal circumstances, would not have the backing support of the Arab League of Nations and potentially, some members of the United Nations Security Council such as Russia and China.

It does not take the intellect and talents of a master chess player to see the pieces to the game that is unfolding and that can only declare one party the winner. Unfortunately, the tools in the hands of those who seem bent on winning, at any cost, are sufficiently dire and decisive enough to bring humanity, if not its ultimate demise, most definitely its undoing for millennia.

The power of prayer seems beyond the wisdom of those to whom humanity has given the power to chart its course and leaves for history, the future of humankind, to truly know its ultimate fate.

Purple Revolution – saga begins?


This is an addendum to an earlier essay posting addressing the potential for Hillary Clinton and George Soros teaming together to initiate what will effectively be a challenge to both the Left and the Right political philosophies of United States politics enshrined with the title :

`Purple Revolution’. [reference:https://naykdpoet.com/2016/11/14/186107/]

Since writing and posting the essay, what has been striking is the subtle emphasis on the color `purple’ in the staging of backdrops, etc., within program broadcasts by Networks noted for the left-wing liberal leaning. At first, I thought I was being a bit paranoid except for the very few occasions post the national election, every instance of Hillary Clinton is in the public media she is always dressed in the color `Purple’.

As such, being struck by this seeming coincidence, I have made it a point to see if there were any potential trends toward a political end; then, it wasn’t until I happened upon an episode of Full Frontal hosted by Canadian comedian, Samantha Bee. Bee, her coverage since the election, has been outspoken against Donald J. Trump becoming the 45th President of the United States.

Then, on the  December 19th 2016 episode video posting captioned: `Strange Bedfellows | Full Frontal with Samantha Bee | TBS’ [https://youtu.be/wuSDfVRGI54] Bee interviews none other than Glenn Beck, a self-confessed `catastrophys’ [his word not mine]. Widely known to represent a somewhat right, if not extreme, political philosophy.

What is communicated should be obvious to anyone; a well-scripted exchange between two polar opposites to serve the purpose to:

  1. Clearly identify Bee’s and Beck’s opposing political position: leftright, respectively;
  2. Recognition of a common potential threat coming from not just Trump the 45th President of the United States, but, his cabinet and administration;
  3. The resolve that compromise, in the face of this threat, would be a mutually `good thing’ for all concerned;
  4. Remediation of Beck’s tarnished character to recognize him as a credible and workable partner [notice that he is wearing a `green‘ color sweater and not `red’ for he is not directly affiliated with the republican wing as such; the, lastly,
  5. A `marriage’ of the two (extreme) positions, taking a common ground stance reflective of the needs of the `People’ followed by celebrating with a bonding by  `cake’, not surprisingly adorned a `Red’ dress [often taken as an occult symbol] and finally, the mutual `sacrificial eating’ of the other’s head. A truce as it were.

Now, before being accused of promoting a conspiracy theory implicating Samantha Bee of Full Frontal and, Glenn Beck, an independent TV political personality/pundit; take a look at the following screenshots taken from the video.https://youtu.be/wuSDfVRGI54

While watching the exchange, what is clearly front and center, is the colorful sweaters Bee and Beck are wearing. In the case of Bee, it is a very bright and clearly `blue’ sweater color adorned with various color balls and shapes and, Beck, his being a distinctive `green’ with the image of a muscled Santa on the front.

bandicam-2016-12-20-14-15-35-747

It was not until the 7:14min mark into the video that something had changed. It was subtle enough to almost have missed it: Bee’s sweater color changed from the distinctive `blue’ to a subtle `purple’.bandicam-2016-12-20-14-14-40-200

This seemed odd since it seemed to happen just post the `marriage’ ceremony and presenting of the cake as an offering to the mutual coming together and the eating of heads.

A swatch of color was copied from the `purple’ sweater and pasted onto the `blue’ sweater to emphasize the change.

Now, some, and it would be reasonable,  may argue this could be simply due to a change in the lighting of the scene; true but, why at the end of the interview when it would most symbolize the `marriage’ of the left wing (blue) and the right-wing (red), to harmonize as an alternate force in the middle (purple)?

Take all this as you will, however, for those who appreciate techniques of soft [re-]programming of advertising and marketing (a.k.a: propaganda machine) campaigns; this has the markings of possibly being one of them. Too, note the prominent color of

Full Frontal’s staging is a vibrant PURPLEsbpurple

To conclude, it is neither here nor there as to my personal concerns in this matter, it purely stems from a curiosity and watcher of trends.

It is ultimately up to each individual to determine if anything is going on<?>

Submission


proclivity

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s hard to find words to dispel a pervasive myth,
The insurgence of an autocracy, rhetoric hints to enlist;
Bought by furious crowds swooning in ignorance bliss;
Opposition to its malignancy, intellect, fails to exist.

Promises of a leadership empowers a corrosive way;
Mouths being muted, blinded by fortunes enticement pay;
Desperate, feuding factions lost to impede this destructive play;
Rendering History’s sufferance gains, dissolve on inauguration day.

Forward, backward, the future path direction led to follow;
Growth toward prosperity sounding more vague and hollow
Yet, anguish and disparity by force left to swallow;
Awakening a new-old world of tomorrows in darkness to wallow.

Minds given to rise-up find futile exercise to opposition
Purchasing summary execution or worse, rendition;
The obvious goal is to obliterate hope of any remedial condition;
Leadership objective: permanent and universal submission.

Will It [N]ever Happen?


trump

               Donald J. Trump                            Rodrigo Duterte

Face it, the reality is that the System; the organized, political, judicial and institutional structure of civil society, as it has evolved, comprehensively, is beyond the scope of any Common-person or group of persons, to evoke REAL CHANGE!

Regardless of the Country-nation, be it one governed by democratic philosophy or autocratic, dictatorial oppressive rule; those individual citizens who advocate for a leadership role, on the strength of reforming the rule of law and legislative governance at the behest of the Common citizen, typically renege on the rhetorical promises made during their electoral campaign.

Virtually, on every occasion in the last century; be they President, Prime Minister, Autocratic Dictator or, other titled leader of a Nation, democratically elected or not, to the highest Office of the Nation; upon taking office and at times before, the only true change observed is diametrically opposite in direction to that advocated in the course of their electoral campaigning.

The direct consequence of this failing on the part of those elected to lead In the majority of countries deemed to have fully open, free democratic election processes; the percentage of those who actually vote typically falls below fifty-percent. Meaning, the candidate elected to Office in effect represents significantly less than a minor majority of the nation’s Peoples. The level of political skepticism and mistrust of elected officials effectually nullifies its true significance and fundamentally, is a waste of time and of public revenues.

So what is the remedy solution if, in fact, there is one to be had?

The answer to this question is elusive at this time, however, there are TWO real-time case-studies to be observed over the course of the next coming year of 2017 and beyond:

A) The Presidency of Donald J. Trump – 45 President of the United States

B) The Presidency of Rodrigo Duterte – Newly elected President of the Philippines

The significance of these two presidential administrations stems from both incumbents being elected on the strength of severe and radical CHANGE to the Establishment rule preceding being officially sworn to Office of President. Each having taken a controversial stance on the current state-of-governance and affairs.

In the case of Donald Trump, President-Elect; his brash and at times controversial statements in presenting his electoral platform focused on the middle-class; advocating for their better representation in the form of jobs and equality to share in the prosperity of the nation captioned by his electoral slogan: `Make America Great Again’.

However, the professional character of those whom his `Transition Team’ has announced, to date, to hold senior cabinet positions within the Trump Administration would suggest the antithesis to the far-reaching promises of his campaigning rhetoric.

Donald J. Trump – President Elect

With respect to President Duterte; his election rhetoric too was brash and controversial in nature. His use of deriding language focused on the condition of the middle-class but, more significantly, with respect to the state-of-the nation’s widespread, illegal drug cartels and, rampant corruption of those within public offices of government and private businesses advocating for a ruthless, eradicating approach to remedy the problems.

President Duterte

In conclusion, given the atypical construct of the campaigns awarding these two unconventional individuals the highest office of their respective Nations; the domestic and international implications of their administrative policies during their time of governance as yet to manifest on the world stage, undoubtedly, regardless, they will have a long-term impact on next generation, electoral cycle machinations for their respective nations as well, for those of observing nations.

However, in the interim, the Common-person still remains hostage to the failings of those who choose to come forward on the strength and promise of REAL CHANGE and, the inability of the System to mitigate its failings.
