EU vs.Trump+33,284,020 Republicans

Brussels 08.11.2020 Anna van Densky OPINION On November 7 the Saturday evening in his Tweet micro blog the EU top diplomat Josep Borrell congratulated Democrat Joe Biden, who proclaimed himself the President-elect of the U.S. in spite of the wide-spread protest of the Republicans who openly accused their opponents in endemic fraud with postal ballots. Meanwhile Georgia State top election official has dispatched a team of investigators after a ballot “issue” was discovered in one of the counties most responsible for giving former
Joe Biden (D) the lead over President Trump (R). The U.S. election process is clearly not over.

However soon Josep Borrell was shortly joined by the European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen, who said she was looking forward to working with “President Biden”, following the European leaders footsteps: Boris Johnson, Emmanuel Macron, Angela Merkel, who also rushed to congratulate Mr.Biden.

The question is what happens when the Republicans start their lawsuits in the Courts, demanding investigation into fraud, and re-count of the votes? The was one 20 years ago in Florida in 2000 during contest between George W. Bush and Al Gore. The Florida vote was settled in Bush’s favour by a margin of 537 votes in manual recount in Bush v. Gore lawsuit.

Nowadays while the mainstream media has announced Nevada and the election race in favour of Joe Biden (D), President Trump’s campaign claims that the race is not over and litigation is just beginning on Monday, November 9.

Governor Kristi Noem (R-South Dakota) noted on November 8 on ABC’s “This Week” programme that during the 2000 election, former Vice President Al Gore was given 37 days to run the process of legal challenges to the election.
Therefore, she said we should “afford the 70.6 million Americans that voted for President Trump the same consideration.” She has also underlined that it was not only about this election, it was about the entire institution, and if Joe Biden was not willing to “break-up the nation” he should allow the legal process to take place to proof that he had really won. The governor’s words were reflecting the position of the Trump voters, who point at too many evidences of fraud during the postal ballot count.

In case in legal procedures there will be no change of results in his favour, President Trump’s term expires at midday on January 20, 2021, and many leaders are showing reserve unlike the EU top executives, who rushed with their congratulations to a candidate who they consider to be more favourable to the EU project.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said he would not congratulate Biden on his victory until all legal challenges are resolved. Similar stance took Russia’s Vladimir Putin and China Xi Jinping.
There was silence from President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia, and many others who preferred not to gamble. From the other hand, they wished to keep good working relations with the Republicans, respecting their concerns of illegitimate postal ballots.

Even if the lawsuits fail to establish the ballots count, allowing President Trump to stay in the White House for the second term, there are strong inclinations for Republicans to stay in control of the Senate, meaning the prospects of Mr.Biden to fulfil his campaign promises are dim, and the EU executive rush wishing him well largely misplaced. The neutrality of Europe would deliver more in every sense, keeping good relations with both camps, defining the ties with the EU as a bipartisan issue.

#Clintons’ Sequel

bil Clinton, Hillary Clinton

If amid #MonicaGate a Hollywood scriptwriter would bring a scenario of #Clintons come back to the Oval office, it would be dismissed without further discussion as a piece of a bad taste, and certainly too wild even for fiction.

However again life brings surprises reaching further than the wildest dreams: Clintons are at the threshold of the White House.
Would a man who committed a perjury become the US ”First gentleman”? Do American people consider chronic adultery fitting a ‘gentleman’s’ image to project on their own society and the rest of the world? The idea of covering husband’s adulteries does not look too feminist either.
Amazing that among 300 million strong nation no other candidate was picked up by the Democrats to promote but a woman seen by millions as ‘the most humiliated’ First lady and ‘the worst’ Secretary of Stage in American history. In brackets one should mention her fading health.
The double standards of treating #Hillary’s email scandal is another issue that makes perplexed anyone who has an idea of severity of punishment with which Americans protect their state secrets. The tragedy of ruined Libyan state, and slain Ambassador remains #Hillary’s paltry legacy as the US top diplomat.
‘We came, we saw … he died!” giggle will stay engraved as an negative example of devastating results of ignorance in foreign policy, because nowadays Libya is a playground of the international terrorism and jihad.
However as if by some hidden magic #Clintons’ reputation remains immune to damages and scandals they have caused.
Is #Clintons’ sequel in White House coming?.. – ‘Human madness variety is unlimited!’ (Avicenna)
