La vittoria di Donald Trump nel 2016 rappresenta molto piu’ di uno sconvolgimento politico. Ha segnato l’inizio di una rivoluzione politica, sociale ed economica che cambiera’ l’America e il mondo.

Con un Parlamento e un Senato saldamente nelle mani dei Repubblicani, che pure lo avevano osteggiato durante la sua scalata, e con la Corte Suprema le cui nomine riequilibreranno l’asset verso i conservatori, il presidente Trump avra’ pieni poteri e una influenza maggiore di quella avuta da Ronald Regan (di cui il neoeletto viene considerato erede per eccellenza). Trump avra’ concretamente la possibilita’ di dare nuova forma e indirizzo alla politica americana degli ultimi 16 anni (e ancora piu’ indietro se consideriamo la presienza Clinton sotto la quale e’ iniziato lo sfacelo della delocalizzazione selvaggia in Cina e della finanza allegra).

Horowitz sottolinea che il cambiamento non deve essere fatto solo a livello di policy, ma a livello ideologico, perche’ e’ a causa della ideologia abbracciata da democratici e parte di republiccani se sono state attuate policy contrarie ai principi della Costituzione.

Trump questo lo sa molto bene e dalla sua ci sono ottimi consiglieri a indicargli la via da percorrere a testa bassa e con decisione perche’…

NON C’E’ TEMPO DA PERDERE (PERCHE’ SE NE E’ PERSO GIA’ TROPPO)

E Trump si e’ messo all’opera ben prima di essere ufficialmente incardinato alla Casa Bianca.

Cito alcuni colpi riusciti: 

  • il colosso della distribuione ALI BABA sta gia’ investendo in America con una partnership che favorira’ le piccole e medie imprese nell’export dei loro prodotto in Cina
  • La promessa di FIAT-CHRYSLER di investire in Michigan
  • FORD non aprira’ un nuovo impianato in Messico e terra’ aperto quello che ha in Kentucky
  • L’estradizione di El Chapo – trafficante di droga del cartello messicano – a NY la sera prima della cerimonia di inaugurazione di Trump
  • La firma dell ordine esecutivo che autorizza le agenzie federali a congelare gli oneri dovuti all’Affordable Care Act. Le conseguenze si vedranno sul lungo periodo, ma e’ un primo passo per frenare il monopolio delle assicurazioni e le ingerenze statali in materia di sanita’ privata. Forse molti non sanno che Obamacare obbligava i non assicurati dal datore di lavoro a comprare una polizza sanitaria “individuale” dallo Stato. Anche chi era sotto occupato e quindi con basso reddito era costretto a provvedere, pena il pagamento di una multa: la “individual mandate penalty” per se e tutti i membri della sua famiglia (!)

If you can afford health insurance but choose not to buy it, you must pay a fee called the individual shared responsibility payment. (The fee is sometimes called the “penalty,” “fine,” or “individual mandate.”) …

The fee for not having health insurance in 2016 & 2017

The fee is calculated 2 different ways – as a percentage of your household income, and per person. You’ll pay whichever is higher.

Percentage of income

  • 2.5% of household income
  • Maximum: Total yearly premium for the national average price of a Bronze plan sold through the Marketplace

Per person

  • $695 per adult
  • $347.50 per child under 18
  • Maximum: $2,085

Horowitz, uno dei commentatori dell’ala conservattrice piu’ noti e rispettati in America e mentore di diversi consulenti di Donald Trump’s key, ci presenta nel suo libro un piano di battaglia per contrattaccare ed arrestare il piano dei “democratici” di smantellare i valori radicati nella Costituzione e nello spirito americani.

Big Agenda e’ quindi una guida per capire cosa ci aspetta nei prossimi 4 anni.

Horowitz scrive:

One battle is over, but there are many more to come. This book is a guide to fighting the opponents of the conservative restoration. It identifies who the adversaries are – their methods and their motivations. And it lays out a strategy that can defeat them.”

Avanti tutta

New York, Giovedi ore 7:30 pm

Inizia il pressing ufficiale dell’amministrazione Trump sul governo messicano.

Staremo a vedere nei prossimi giorni quanti nomi tirera’ “El Chapo” Guzman, uno dei maggiori e piu’ brutali esponenti del cartello della droga messicano. Nomi che includono diverse personalita’ note nel partito Democratico, ad esempio l’ex attorney general del DOJ (Department of Justice) Eric Holder, coinvolto nello scandalo “Fast and Furious”.

Per rinfrescarsi la memoria sull’argomento potete leggere il seguente del Radicchio postato a Febbraio 2012 : L’operazione”Fast and Furious”, il piu’ grave scandalo che abbia investito l’amministrazione Obama

La “bonifica della palude” di Washington (il motto di Trump e’ stato sin da principio “drain the swamp”) e’ iniziata: ne vedremo delle belle.

A proposito del presunto o reale coinvolgimento del partito Democratico nel traffico della droga, vi rimando a questo documentario:

Prince Zeid bin Ra’ad

Prince Zeid Ra’ad Zeid Al-Hussein (born 26 January 1964) is the current United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, having taken up this post in September 2014.[1] He is the son of Prince Ra’ad bin Zeid, Lord Chamberlain of Jordan, and his Swedish-born wife Margaretha Inga Elisabeth Lind, subsequently known as Majda Raad. Previously, he was Jordan‘s Permanent Representative to the United Nations. From 2007 to 2010 he served as Jordan’s Ambassador to the United States and non-resident Ambassador to Mexico. Zeid played a central role in the establishment of the International Criminal Court, and was elected the first president of the Assembly of State Parties of the International Criminal Court in September 2002. He also served as a political affairs officer in UNPROFOR, in the former Yugoslavia, from 1994 to 1996.

Zeid warns against populists and demagogues in Europe and U.S.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein urges action to confront demagogues who blend fictional halcyon past with half truths and simplification, resulting in “the banalization of bigotry” and an atmosphere of hate that may slide into violence:

Zeid was born in Amman, Jordan. He was educated at Reed’s School, Surrey, in England, then at Johns Hopkins University in the United States, where he was a prominent member of the university’s rugby club and graduated B.A. in 1987. He was then a research student at Christ’s College, Cambridge, where he gained a Ph.D in 1993.

In 1989 Prince Zeid received his commission as an officer in the Jordanian desert police (the successor to the Arab Legion), and saw service with them until 1994. He then spent two years as a political officer in UNPROFOR, the UN force in the Former Yugoslavia.

Zeid served as Jordan’s Deputy Permanent Representative, and then Permanent Representative, at the United Nationsfrom 1996 to 2007. For three years he was Jordan’s Ambassador to the United States of America, then in 2010 returned to the UN as Jordan’s Permanent Representative.

In January 2014 Zeid was appointed as president of the United Nations Security Council and chaired the Security Council’s 1533 and 1521 committees, with regard to two sanctions regimes: the Democratic Republic of the Congo andLiberia.

From 16 September 2010 to 7 March 2012, Zeid was the Chairman of the Country-Specific Configuration of the UN Peace Building Commission for Liberia. He also chaired the search committee for the selection of the second prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in 2011.

With reference to the International Criminal Court, and from 1996 to 2010, he was:

  • President of the Assembly of State Parties to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (2002–2005).
  • Chairman of the informal negotiations on the ‘elements’ of the individual offenses falling under the crimes of: Genocide, Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes(1999-2000).
  • Chairman of the Working Group on the Crime of Aggression at the Review Conference of the Rome Statute in Kampala (June 2010).

While at the UN, he further chaired the Consultative Committee for the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) from 2004–2007 and in 2004 was named Advisor to the Secretary-General on Sexual Exploitation and Abuse in UN peacekeeping. During his two-year tenure, he issued a ground-breaking report on eliminating such abuse from all peacekeeping operations, which became known as the ‘Zeid Report’.[2]

Zeid delivered the Grotius Lecture at the 102nd Annual Meeting of the American Society of International Law (April 2008) entitled: ‘For Love of Country and International Criminal Law’. Prince Zeid was a member of the Advisory Committee to the Institute for Historical Justice and Reconciliation. He was also a member of the World Bank‘s Advisory Council for the World Development Report 2011 and the International Advisory Board of the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation.[3]

On June 6, 2014, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon proposed that Prince Zeid replace Navi Pillay as the United Nations’ human rights chief based in Geneva. The nomination, which was subsequently approved by the 193-nation U.N. General Assembly, made him the first Muslim to lead the UN Human Rights Office.[4] Full texts of all his statements are available at the website of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.[5] In that capacity he has stated, “There is no justification ever, for the degrading, the debasing or the exploitation of other human beings – on whatever basis: nationality, race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age or caste.”[6]

Tenure as UN High Commissioner for Human Rights

On 8 September 2014, in his maiden speech to the UN’s 47-member council at the body’s 27th session in Geneva, Zeid strongly criticized the so-called Islamic Stategroup, saying it was trying to create a “house of blood”. He called on the international community to combat the spread of the movement in Iraq and Syria, asking, “[Do] they believe they (ISIS) are acting courageously, barbarically slaughtering captives?” The massacres, beheadings, rape and torture “reveal only what a Takfiri (ie. ‘excommunicator’ in Arabic) state would look like, should this movement actually try to govern in the future”, he said. “It would be a harsh, mean-spirited house of blood, where no shade would be offered, nor shelter given to any non-Takfiri in their midst”. In a speech at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Commissioner said that lessons from the Holocaust provide a key to understanding ISIS. He said: “If we have learned anything from our collective history, it is this: Scrambling only for ourselves, our people, our political or religious ideology, or for our own kind will only scramble it all — eventually, sometimes horrifyingly so — for everyone.” According to press accounts, he said “The solution he proposed for avoiding atrocities such as the Holocaust was human rights education for every child in the world, beginning before the age of nine. ‘In this way, from Catholic parochial schools to the most secular public institutions, and indeed Islamic madrassahs, children could learn — even in kindergarten — and experience the fundamental human rights values of equality, justice and respect.'”[7]

The newly appointed Commissioner also focused on other troubled areas of the world, including Venezuela, Ukraine and Gaza.[8] His press statements are available on the website of his office.[5]

He has reported to the Security Council on Iraq[9] and other countries, and spoken of the need for greater moral courage to ensure equality and human rights for all: “Children need to learn what bigotry and chauvinism are, and the evil they can produce. They need to learn that blind obedience can be exploited by authority figures for wicked ends. They should also learn that they are not exceptional because of where they were born, how they look, what passport they carry, or the social class, caste or creed of their parents; they should learn that no-one is intrinsically superior to her or his fellow human beings … Sadly, they must learn that the Zeppelin Field, the shadow of Buchenwald, the glint of the machete and the horror of life today in Syria, Iraq, South Sudan, Central African Republic and elsewhere – wherever we live, they are never that far away.”[10]

He said that the United States had an obligation under international law to prosecute all those responsible for C.I.A. torture, from those who carried out interrogations to policy makers and higher-ups who gave the orders.[11]

On 17 April 2015, Prince Zeid placed the field operations director at the OHCHR, Anders Kompass, under administrative leave after Kompass provided French authorities with an internal UN report detailing sexual abuse of children by French UN peacekeeping troops in the Central African Republic.[12] The decision was reversed on 5 May 2015 after being found “prima facie unlawful” by the United Nations Dispute Tribunal[13][14]

On 17 August 2016, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein expressed deep regret at the failure of UN Human Rights Office to gain access to Kashmir, despite allegations of state sponsorship of violence and the almost daily reports of violence in the region. [15]

Personal life

Zeid is the son of Prince Ra’ad bin Zeid, Lord Chamberlain of Jordan. His paternal grandmother was the renowned Turkish painter Princess Fahrelnissa Zeid who was married to Prince Zeid bin Hussein.[16]

The UN does not permit the use of royal or other titles by its officials in the context of their official work.

Prince Zeid was married on the 5 July 2000 in Amman to Sarah Butler, known as Princess Sarah Zeid after her marriage, who was born in Houston, Texas, on 1 August 1972. She was educated at Prior’s Field, Hurtwood House in Surrey, and has a BA in International Relations from the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas and an MSC in Development Studies from SOAS, University of London. She was then employed with the United Nations Organization in New York City, where she served in the development program, the peace-keeping department and UNICEF. She is the daughter of Dr Godfrey Butler, a British geologist and a consultant to international oil companies, and Jean H. Butler.[17]
