THE CONSEQUENCES OF HAVING PERSONALITY DISORDERED PERSONS IN PUBLIC OFFICES DONALD J. TRUMP, A CASE IN POINT Ozodi Thomas Osuji In June of 2015, Donald J Trump declared his intention to compete to become the President of the United States of America. Prior to that date I did not know much about him. Upon the declaration of his intention to become the president I did a little research on him; I read up on him. His speeches struck me as that of a third grader at an elementary school, a boy of about eight years old. His diction was pedestrian.…
Afis, my main man, I knew and still know that despite your occasional descent to the gutter, apparently to reach the Biafrans where they choose to live, name calling, in social discourse you have it in you to operate at the most elevated level. Your write up below, especially your reflections on Alexis Charles Henri Clerel de Tocqueville, Viscount de Tocqueville (1805-1859) proves my thesis that you are a well-educated and smart man who occasionally discards decorum and operates like a street hoodlum. Thank you for the view on de Tocqueville. The man was a French Aristocrat from Normandy; he…

On America's inevitable decline and fall

Written by
ON AMERICA'S INEVITABLE DECLINE AND FALL Marvin Robinson: I feel your pain; as an American patriot, I appreciate your desire to resurrect the supposed glory that was the USA. However, there is something that you need to know. History does not stand still. Despite Americans claim of American exceptionalism the fact is that there is such a thing as historical reality; that reality catches up with all nations whether they like it or not. They try to cheat it but they cannot. We had great empires in Sumeria, Egypt, Persia, Greece, Rome, the Ottomans, Britain, France and the USSR; those…
President Trump's first foreign trip as the US president directed the world's attention to Trump's world view: a pivot to the Mideast. It also showcased the beginning of the dissolution of NATO. In Middle East, the red carpet was rolled out for Mr. Trump as the leaders of the Arab League gathered in Riyadh to welcome his team with bouquets. They celebrated the change which Trump's election signaled. Trump enjoyed his visit. And on to Jerusalem where an even more elaborate celebration was held. It was, by all accounts, the best segment of the 9-day foreign travel. It is a…
WHY CAN'T CALIFORNIA GIVE ALL CALIFORNIANS A SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE? Ozodi Thomas Osuji There is something that bugs me about us, Americans; it is that we know the right thing and would not do it unless our backs are pushed to the wall and we have no choice but to do it. Everybody who has any brains in his head understands that health care is really a right and not a privilege; all people ought to have access to health insurance; health is not what some people should have and others not have it. A rational society must give…
Adeyinka Makinde: Given your fascination with what seems to you Russians' power, I felt an urge to show you that Russia is a tootles tiger that can be knocked out by a resurgent Germany ; as we speak Germany has almost total control of the Russian industrial sector! You are invited to read "In Praise of Transatlantic Divorce", by Stephen M. Wait, in Foreign Policy Magazine, May 30, 2017. See below excerpt from Mr. Wait's excellent article. "The EU has a population of more than 500 million and a combined economy of roughly $16 trillion (the US GDP is about…
I need all of you to rewind the tape to see all of my articles on Donald Trump on the Internet, or on Chatafrik or the Sahara Reporters websites and all of my predictions on his presidency as a concerned American senior citizen with two of my sons currently and proudly serving in the US Navy with my approval and consent because I love America too much to stay neutral. Like Winston Churchill once stated when he said he refused to stay unbiased and neutral if he has to choose between the Fire and the Fire Brigade" If we all…
Many Americans have nothing meaningful to do with their lives and instead engage in racism and discrimination against minority people; this evil behavior gives their meaningless lives pseudo meaning. Moreover, it gives them a sense of false worth; by looking down on other people they derive a sense of worth thus masking their existential sense of worthlessness. If they did not discriminate against some persons they would recognize the utter meaninglessness and worthlessness of their existence and perhaps become depressed and commit suicide. They avoid depression and suicide by engaging in racism and efforts to keep other people away from…
The problem with us human beings is that we think that we have the choice to tolerate injustice or not. The fact is that we do not have such choice; our only choice is to tolerate the just; if something is not just to people we must not tolerate it; we must not rationalize injustice with our usual ego defense mechanisms and live with what we should not live with. If society's practices are not just our function is to fight for what we believe is just and not just live with the unjust society. If we try to live…
Things must be bad when the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, is the principal defender of the President of United State, Donald J. Trump. In a press conference with the Italian Prime Minster standing by Mr. Putin offered to give the US legislators the transcript of Russian leaders meeting with Mr. Trump. He suggested that the American legislators are harming US interest and preventing Mr. Trump from doing the work he was elected to do. When did the Russian government become The Defender of OLD GLORY? When? Mr. Putin’s offer came because of the tumultuous week Mr. Trump, the republican…
That the four-month-old presidency of Donald Trump is floundering and falling apart is now clear to all except perhaps the neophytes the president has appointed to his inner circles. Even these loyal followers are exhibiting signs that all is not well with the administration they have been called upon to nurture to health. Overt signs of a disintegrating presidency include the chaotic press briefings by the presidential spokespersons such as Sean Spicer and now his deputy. Sarah Huckabee Sanders in which what is said in the morning is often modified in the evening. There have been numerous occasions when the…
All Presidents and Heads of Government and Politicians the world over can hardly admit on oath that they do not lie or do all of the above when cornered or when they have their backs against the wall or when they are caught with their hands in the cookie jar like this obnoxious President. I sure get that but this observation has assumed a new level with Donald Trump becoming the first KGB-sponsored President of what I used to call the greatest country on Earth and my country by choice and naturalization. I have traveled quite a bit around the…
If Donald Trump says Good morning to you, you have to check your time before you respond back to him. If he tells you there is a guaranteed medical coverage for pre-existing condition even after his repeal of Obamacare and his replacement by his own Trump version, you have to know he is telling a bogus lie. There can be no guaranteed coverage for poor sick Americans including children and poor senior citizens across the country when all the 50 states are granted waivers in the Legislation to pick and choose what is less expensive and more convenient to them.…
The President of United States is in a class all by himself because a lot of world peace depends on him. It follows that in anything the president says or does domestically or internationally must be very measured. No national leader takes the actions or words of a US President as a joke. The current president of US seems to be making statements that make much of the world nervous. I saw my Primary Care Physician last week. She was preparing to go to Korea and she was afraid that there may not be “Korea” while she is there or…
A good psychoanalyst and a mind reader like Professor Ozodi Osuji, a Nigerian American who lives in Alaska and has become the most popular columnist of Chatafrik by the consensus of readers would tell you that Donald Trump would have wished to be elected President of the United States at a much younger age like JFK who became President at 42. Same Osuji would probably have told you that it is far much harder to change or panel-beat a 70 year old man than an adolescent. The Presidency as a learning curve changes most Presidents but not Trump who is…
America, The West And All Extant Human Societies Protect Unnatural Human Behaviors Ozodi Thomas Osuji You probably have noticed that Americans, white and black, are operating in an artificially constructed society of capitalism, free enterprise and phony democracy; in it are laws that give people room to operate within the parameters of that society. As long as people do as their unnatural laws require them to operate they are rewarded and protected but should they try to step out of them they would be arrested and tried by the country's phony courts of laws and jailed. If the individual is…
My first preoccupation in this article is to establish up front what Russian Vladimir Putin had done to America that we all should be concerned about if we truly love America is my reason for writing this article. As a proud father of 2 young men proudly serving in the US Military, and as a happy retiree who gets my pensions and social security paid without fail on a specific date of the month. I wake up every day praying for America and cursing out any nation on Earth which may be trying to mess with America. The medical coverage,…
Even though America is arguably too embarrassed to admit it, it is now widely known or speculated by Intelligence experts like Michael Steel of Britain who prepared the powerful dossier that may yet help America to nail the speculation that the Trump/Putin lovefest, co-operation and collusion may have been far criminally intrusive than initially envisaged. Both Mr. Steel and Malcolm Nance, the Director of Terror Asymmetric Project and FBI Director James Comey have all stated that Russia may have quietly caught up with America or beaten America to second place in Cyber Technology just like Russia did when she became…
As a backdrop to this subject, I would urge many of you reading this article to go watch on You Tube a video of an interview of Mr. George Wallace with the great Mr. Louis Farrakhan on the Definition of Double Standard and whether or not Nigeria was the most corrupt nation on Earth. My initial title to this article was, "It's done, it's over, it's cooked for America" but I modify the title because I know that Presidents come and go but America would survive the worst of Presidents and reinvent the wheel as it has happened many times.…

America is a fake democracy

Written by
The word fake, that which is not real, has probably been around for as long people are around; however, it gained currency during the 2016 US presidential election cycle. Suddenly, social media was inundated with what they called fake news. All kinds of fake news were spread about Hillary Clinton; she was presented as a murderer who had murdered many associates and anyone who stood on her way just so she gets and retains power. Donald Trump took to calling the stalwarts of America's mainstream media, such as the New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN fake…
If you are looking for just one reason why the racist elements of the Republican Party are supporting Donald Trump despite his pathological lies and delusional personality and collusion with KGB Vladimir Putin of all people, and why they desperately wanted to regain the White House by any means in 2016, this article is a must read for you. If they ever credit a black President, Barack Obama and the Democrats with universal medical coverage for all Americans which they have written off as Socialized Medicine and therefore dead on arrival, they would have forfeited their right to ever win…
If Donald Trump is not stopped, he is soon going to claim to be the American equivalent of King Louis the XIV of France who once proclaimed himself as the State."L'Etat cest moi" he said to quote him verbatim. Donald Trump equates himself to the State at this point, and he is determined to use his bully pulpit to demonize leakers and whistle blowers like no other American President before him. He is actively learning the ropes from Vladimir Putin pretty much like Adolf Hitler had done when he internalized the famous doctrines of "The Prince" by Nicolo Machiavelli. Hitler…

Make America fearful, again

Written by
Donald Trump's campaign theme was "Make America great, again". I did not quite get it for I had assumed that America is the greatest country in the world. I know that America has some issues to fix, such as getting immigrants to assimilate to American culture. I have written extensively against the nonsense called multiculturalism and diversity. Multiculturalism is a way of dividing a country and a divided country, sooner or later, falls. A country is strong when it is unified by one culture. I talked about using what I called scientific culture to unify America. If you are coming…
America's politics is the politics of fearful cowards; white Americans are fearful cowards; black Americans are fearful cowards; all Americans are fearful cowards. Because all Americans are fearful cowards their politics is the politics of fearful cowards. Americans, black and white are afraid of death and out of fear of death would not stand up and fight for a just society; they allow a few persons to screw them. In Europe their ancestors allowed a few gangsters called aristocrats to screw them; they carried that cowardly approach to life forward to America where they allow a few rich folks to…

FAREED ZAKARIA:"Above and Beyond"

Written by
A Television commercial in America describes the Range Rover Jeep above and beyond in performance. In the interest of full disclosure and to avoid being accused of Plagiarism, I confess to borrowing this title from that commercial. Fareed Zakaria as a News reporter and analyst is truly deserving of the Nobel Peace Award in Journalism if the choice were left to me alone. The young man makes a huge impression on me in the way and manner he handles his Global Public Square talk show every Sunday. I am impressed by the high level of research that goes into his…
