As the likes of things, some candidates think they are better qualified than others to become president of the United States. This is not for one candidate to decide for YOU.
You are adults enough to differentiate the candidates.
For this matter, the issue of THINKING consisting in putting into perspective the things that matter MUCH for the nation is key.
Then you owe to look at personal accounts of sheets, before they candidated. This one is about the character of a candidate. Is he or she trustworthy ? Is he or she respectful of the law, justice and other nations and leaders around the World ? Is he or she reliable ?
There are two ways of driving a campaign :
- using personal disqualifications to divert the people’s attention or to distract them with games and spectacles. For those people, Politics is a Spectacle. It is a Big Show and movie starring billionnaires and wealthy actors queueing behind the candidate.
- or coming forth with ideas and a programme to stop the slippery slope we are in right now.
But, you know all this as well.
Let’s go into this ideas vs ideas – programme against programme. Record vs record.
Don’t be distracted. You know it as well. But is is worth insisting.
This moment is an Amazing Grace.
Just hear the song again. Amazing Grace, coming from the Heavens. Coincidentally, tax Havens are revealing themselves like a miracle. Can’t you see the harmony between those three words : The Heavens, the Havens and the Haves not.
Please answer : I can see. Amazing Grace is the song of a Bird. A Birdie Song.
Now I’m sure you can see.
Amazing Grace, a wonderful masterpiece. Listen at this one :
« I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

Sisters and Brothers –
Hillary Clinton herself just unleashed the first part of the new « disqualify him, defeat him and then they can unify the party later » strategy we told you about. Look at this new headline:
Washington Post: « Clinton questions whether Sanders is qualified to be president »
Polls in Wisconsin haven’t even been closed for 24 hours, and we’re already seeing the start of the Clinton campaign’s full-on attack before the New York primary. We knew they were getting nervous, but candidly, we didn’t think they would go this negative so quickly. We have to be ready for what comes next.
New York is going to be an important state for the Democratic nomination. Bernie was born there, Hillary Clinton moved there, and 247 delegates are at stake on April 19.
We’ve won seven of the last eight contests, and voters clearly side with Bernie. So now the Clinton campaign is moving beyond a discussion of the issues to say Bernie isn’t even qualified to be president.
Meanwhile, Bernie’s going to keep talking about universal health care, fighting climate change, making our economy work for everyone, and taking on our corrupt campaign finance system. Voters seem to like it – and we’re not going to let up now.
The next two weeks until the New York primary are going to be difficult, but if we stand together, we can win. Thanks for standing with Bernie.

The game is so rigged, especially the primary nomination system, that the establishment can and does control the system.
Follow the link for the whole story. « Democracy we once thought we had » resonates matches with :
« I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.
This is one of the best of the Negro Spiritual.
Now, will Paul Ryan cash the monopoly ? Is the GOP’s plan serious ? Who the Hell told Senator Rubio do drop out of the race ? Florida lost was not the end, but a call for change. He has missed the message. Can he come back ?
ON THE WAVES
FALLOUT OF THE PANAMA PAPERS IN AMERICA. « It is easy to think that the problem is limited to offshore tax havens in places like Panama. But what most don’t know is that the United States itself is one of the easiest and most popular places to set up anonymous companies.3
Legislation in Congress would crack down on tax evasion and criminal activity by forcing American corporations to disclose their true owners.4 The Panama Papers have put tax evasion in the center of the conversation and sparked an international controversy – so we are teaming up with our friends at Global Witness to seize this moment and demand an end to anonymous shell corporations in the United States.

Lagarde Appoints Historians to Chronicle “Defining Moments” in Fund’s History
Ms. Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), today announced the appointment of Professor Harold James of Princeton University and Atish (Rex) Ghosh, Assistant Director in the Research Department, as the new IMF historians. They will replace retired historian James Boughton, and both will start in their new roles on May 2, 2016.
“Professor James and Mr. Ghosh will write the Fund’s official history from James Bouthton, 2000 to 2015, a period characterized by the global financial crisis, the crisis in Europe, and the growing role of emerging and developing countries in the world economy — all defining moments in the Fund’s history,” Ms. Lagarde said.
“Few people are better placed than Professor James to take on this challenge. He completed his undergraduate education at Cambridge University, and received his Ph.D. in 1982. He began teaching at Princeton University in 1986, and has written numerous books and articles on economic history, focusing on modern German history in the earlier part of his career. More recently, he has written extensively on the economic implications of globalization, drawing comparisons with previous episodes of globalization, including the one that ended with the Great Depression,” she added.
Prior to joining the Fund in 1994, Mr. Ghosh worked as an assistant professor at Princeton University. He holds a PhD in economics from Harvard University and a M.Sc. in development economics from Oxford University, He has written widely on topics ranging from capital flows to exchange rate management and has been an adjunct professor at Georgetown University since 1997.
For the duration of his appointment as Fund historian, Professor James will retain his chair at Princeton, working part time at the Fund. Mr. Ghosh will work full time in his new role. Both will be based in the Strategy and Policy Review Department.
