Trump’s Triumph – America’s Hissy Fit

by Ashok Dhillon on 11/11/16


November 9th, 2016, a day that will go down in infamy, when half, of mostly respectable Americans, shocked the other half in their country, and the rest of the World, by electing Donald J. Trump, as the 45th President of the United States. This rash act was one of pure revolt against the established order, and one borne of desperation in the face of chronic and debilitating disease of economic regression, resulting in the purchase of the ‘all-ills-healing potion’, from the consummate snake-oil salesman Donald Trump. The operating credo throughout his campaign was, say anything to anyone and worry about delivering on it, if at all, later. Sounds sort of reasonable pragmatic business thinking, except, most of what he promised to his avid and desperate buyers, is practically impossible for him to deliver on.

Trump, by all universal measures, was arguably the most unlikely and unsuitable Presidential candidate in the history of that Country. Because America isn’t some Banana Republic or a blatantly corrupt Third-World Country, but is one of the most advanced and the most powerful country in the World, and better or for worse (mostly better) an example and a Leader to most of the World.

The sheer unsuitability of this candidate, by any civilized country’s measure is legend. Yet, for an unfathomable number of Americans, he was the right man for the highest office in the land, even though, for a majority of those that voted for him (approximately 62%), he was neither suitable nor trustworthy!

In spite of such significant misgivings, they voted him in as the next President of the United States! Such an act of desperation can only come from those that: a) share his crass makeup (a smaller number); or b) are hurting too much for too long to care about the ill advisement of their action (a larger number, and those without any reasonable patience left).

The second group, decided to go with him in spite of his blatant lies and falsehoods, even though they knew the chances of him making good on most of what he was saying were slim to none (some actually admitted it).

But, staying with the obvious establishment type, Hillary Clinton, even if she did outshine him by miles on every pertinent requirement, was just not appealing this time.

The middle America that Hillary Clinton counted on to be her “Blue Wall”, this election, quietly slunk away and voted for danger, uncertainty, possible disaster, but guaranteed  change with Trump.

They and enough others rolled the dice to change America’s recent direction (under Obama) of a kinder and gentler America with an enhanced sense of civility, compassion, rule of law (both internal and international), gradual but steady economic comeback, to back-to-the-past, to the previously tried and tested and disastrous Republican ways (In the past 30 years, measurably, the best economic, societal performers were both Democratic Administrations).

But, America (those who voted for Trump) as a country and an economy, was not ready to grow up and act like a responsible, albeit a bit boring adult, so it threw an irrational, highly risky, adolescent fit.

Not willing to acknowledge that the World has changed and days of easy money for all levels of its society were probably long over, and any new paths to new found prosperity would be hard fought and hard won through long years of discipline, years of innovation, and yes, rationalization, because hungrier and cheaper competitor countries were going to bring the hard-nosed merciless principles of American style capitalism to America’s own front door, just like America did to the more mature countries of Europe and the previous super power Great Britain, in the last century.

Nobody was interested in discussing the impossibility of ‘bringing jobs back’ in a time when corporations, to stay relevant and competitive, must have lowest cost production. In North America, where energy prices and taxes are already far lower than in Asia (the manufacturing competitor), the only additional initiative would be to automate; not exactly the mass job creating idea is it? Besides, some companies in Asia are already going down that path. So how are corporations going to be enticed, ordered, threatened or otherwise coerced into ‘bringing jobs back’ by ‘lean-on-details’ Trump? Or for that matter the one-trick-pony ‘cut taxes’ Republicans.

But who is interested in patient dissection of pragmatic, structural problems of the modern country and economy and the resulting sensible implementation of steady remedies (Obama/Hillary Clinton solutions), when there is a snake-oil salesman in your face promising instant remedy to all your long festering problems and fears, in shorter time than it takes to say ‘Donald Trump’!


The US Election – The Bar Room Busting Brawl

by Ashok Dhillon on 11/06/16


It’s almost closing time for the 2016 US Election (we hope). Barring legal or lunatic challenges, or downright refusal to accept voting results by the fringe elements, on November the 8th, this “Mad Mad World” of electing the next US President, 2016, would be over. But just as closing time in a very rowdy bar, and this one was particularly rowdy, there may be some fireworks still left as some patrons have obviously had too much partisanship divide, and political incorrectness, ingested for their own good. The pettiness, the mudslinging, the insulting name calling, and low body blows have been worthy of the raunchiest of bars on the wrong side of town, and there are a lot of badly bruised people and a lot of furniture smashed during its long run. And it ain’t quite over yet.

The scourge of irrational partisanship (prime brewers being primarily the Republicans) has been brewing in the good old United States for the past many decades, and the mixture has been getting increasingly potent every single year. This year master brewer, Mr. Donald Trump, was inducted into the brewery by the Republicans to brew a particularly toxic batch, and he didn’t disappoint. The first victims to feel the potency of his brew of dirty politics were his Republican opponents in the Primaries, all of whom he left devastated and much diminished, after his focused ministrations.

His masterful brew of low swinging attacks, with no personal or professional area being off bounds, stripped of all pretense of civility, dragging his opponent in the mud pit where he gleefully messed up generations of eroding dignity of US politics, brought everyone to a new and hereto unknown low in political campaign behavior.  

In one single season of no holds barred political dirty fighting, he left even the radicals of the Tea Party movement amongst the Republicans shell shocked, and the rest not knowing whether to laugh or cry, celebrate or mourn for a Party, and an identity, that is no more the “Republicans” they knew and loved.

Mr. Trump will surely will be inducted into the “Extreme Republican Hall of Fame” for this particularly potent brew, for this batch has the potential of doing America, its political and governing system, its cohesiveness, its international reputation, and the Republican Party itself, some significant lasting damage.

The other side, the Democrats, the Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, President Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, have gallantly tried to rise above the mud pit by slogans such as “Stronger Together”, “When they go low we go high”, and such, to no avail.

They collectively have been dragged kicking and screaming helplessly into the slime by the irrepressibly politically incorrect Donald Trump, who does not know any another way, and has them gasping for fresh political air, even now, as they are barely able to keep their collective noses above the foul smelling dirty water of “TrumpSwamp”, wherein they fear drowning forever.

The Democrats seem like a bunch of not too clean priests that have inadvertently gate crashed into the nether world of the raunchiest of all biker parties – like the very rowdy Mexican bar in the movie "From Dusk to Dawn". Everything about this feels wrong but they have no ideas on how to, desperately, get out of it, and end up by resorting to singing from the same old hymn book of former rules of engagement, of old US elections won and lost, which has proven severely and sadly inadequate, and so far quite ineffective.


The Democrats and in particular Hillary Clinton have been savagely attacked by Trump’s biker gang type of supporters who have embraced his penchant for political incorrectness, and know no limits of impropriety.  

The problem is - the old ways of doing things are making the other side all the more irrationally insane. The “TrumpSwamp” bikers are having none of the “play nice” and are baying for anarchical change of the “rigged system”, pure mayhem of upending all international alliances, tearing up of all Trade Agreements, shutting everyone out, and nothing less than the very blood of their America destroying socialist enemies, Hillary Clinton and the Democrats.


During the last 8 years, the crazed bundles of suppressed bigotry amongst the Republicans, could barely contain their fury of being led by the first African American President in history (in some way Donald Trump was at the forefront of that Republican un-accepting ‘will of the people’ fight, bringing into question the very question of Obama being American born, the very fundamental requirement of being an American President. He was forced to recant his false but obstinate assertions only recently in this race). Such is the hatred of the Republican side towards the other that Trump seemed to them the much awaited Messiah who would allow them to unleash all the suppressed hatred, bigotry, and political correctness that has disallowed them to express that which they have been dying to express. And then arrived Trump; and all the hate came welling up in his pumped-up rallies, and it came up in spades.

To a horrified World the thin covering of American civility just blew away, exposing a hateful, festering, divided society that can barely stand each other, let alone suspicious foreigners; so much for the American version of “All for one and one for all”.

As the campaign progressed over the months, Trump stirred in ever greater portions of toxicity and personal attacks, name calling the other potential American Presidential Candidate as if it was a race of some low level backwoods local election with candidates that nobody knew, or would ever know after the race, and not the run for the most powerful leader of the World, that the whole World had to accept and respect.

In doing so, he shredded all dignity from the position and the process of electing the President of the United States. This election and its results, and the manner of its conduct, will reverberate throughout the World for a very long time, forever changing the perception and dignity of the US in other people’s eyes.

The question on the lips of the World at this time is, how is this type of behavior even possible from the top contenders of the top job, particularly Mr. Trump, and what are we collectively to think of America from here on out as a “Leader of the Free World”.

The “Not-So-Free-World” has already made up its mind and made hay from this debacle by panning the virtues of democracy with their own people, and assuring them of the virtues of their own authoritarian systems compared to this unseemly public political food-fight in the World’s most famous democracy.

After all, as one of the most powerful, wealthiest and advanced nations on earth, America is looked upon to set an example in everything, and in this case it certainly did, albeit not the one everyone expected, or will likely forget anytime soon.

Hard Into the Stretch – The Blood Sport That Is The American Presidential Election

by Ashok Dhillon on 10/26/16


With just days to go in this 2016 US Presidential Election, both candidates, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, and Republican nominee Donald Trump, their surrogates, and their volunteers, are trying frantically to shore up support and convince the undecided to become their voting supporters. Put that way, it sounds just like a normal hard fought political campaign for the US Presidency doesn’t it, crazy as that process is compared to other countries. But this particular election is anything but normal, even by the strangeness of the process of American Presidential elections.

Firstly, the Presidential election process itself is incredibly long and bruising. And given the prolonged multiple battles against a diverse bunch of opponents it can be unprofessional, confused, and at odd times comical. As the field thins, the battles become more focused and ferocious, at times downright vicious. But up till this election, except for perhaps a few memorable moments, and the rare memorable candidate(s), the elections are mostly forgettable for the most part. Not this one. 

This election is a volatile mix of political, power and money machinations, on a scale generally unknown in any other democratic country, with a particularly virulent partisan split that has fanned the flames of division along political, economic, religious, racial, class, gender, social, liberal and conservative lines, to a degree that is leaving even the adrenaline addicted, thrill seeking Americans a little breathless, and shell shocked.

The difference in this election cycle has of course been Donald Trump. If he hadn’t entered the race, the election would have been fairly mundane, notwithstanding the extraordinary number of Republican candidates in the primaries. Most of the Republican candidates that vied for nomination were regular political types and not particularly outstanding or memorable in personality or in their deeds to-date. On the Democratic front the number of candidates was much smaller, and even that quickly reduced down to primarily two (2) veterans, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. And while both candidates had good record of public service, they were hardly ones to radically rock the establishment boat too aggressively.

Bernie Sanders developed his run at garnering the nomination into an extraordinary one, beating all expectations, and improbably appealing to the younger generation of American voters that by and large until Bernie kick-started his campaign, had elected to stay out of the political process altogether, through deep social, economic disillusionment, and sheer boredom. But Bernie’s left-of-centre, humanist, economic, environmental, gender and equality based, young people oriented platform fired the younger generation, and brought the kind of excitement that had not been expected from him or his campaign by anyone.

To the end, Bernie and his campaign were bold, impassioned, and perhaps visionary, but respectful of the political process and his powerfully (and covertly favored, by the Democratic establishment) winning opponent, Hillary Clinton.    

But, it was Donald Trump that radically changed the tone and tenor of this election from a pretty predictable run-of-the-mill one to an especially explosive, perhaps even a destructive one.

Trump ignored the status quo of the rough and tumble of American politics, and Presidential elections in particular, which were already a type of muted blood sport, with barbs and ad-attacks allowed on competitors, but with some tacitly understood rules to keep it all somewhat semi–civil, and moderately respectful of the high office for which the top candidates of both Parties were vying for.

Instead, Trump tore up the book on rules of acceptable behavior, and made it into a no-holds-barred, bare knuckle, bite, scratch, gouge the eyes out, swing at the family and friends, and spit at everyone watching-type of a political fight. And by doing so, Trump drew to himself as his ‘core base’, the more parochial right wing of the Republican Party and the American public. And with that ideologically compatible core base solidly behind him, he turned the election race into a morbidly fascinating free for all brawls where he took the fight first to the Republican Party and then the Republican elites, and then to his Democrat opponent Hillary Clinton.

From all accounts, this is the kind of fight he likes and revels in. This is the kind of fight that suits him. A fight that took an America that had sunk rather low, nationally and internationally in reputation and in reality, during, and especially after the disastrous Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld Republican Presidency, the broken America that President Obama tried to lift up and heal over the next 8 years of his two terms; Trump took that America, and in this election, right from the primaries, ripped all pretentions of decency and civility off of it, and made the competition descend into the septic tank of perpetual stinking hateful vitriol, and an ever rising tide and tirade of ever personal never ending insults (the hateful, conspiracy theories filled far right Republican radio show hosts on steroids).

The Presidential election went from the normal pointing out the other’s shortcomings as a political candidate, and a fairly harsh and intemperate critique of their history and past performance, yet within acceptable limits, to the unruly bawdy barroom/brothel type descriptions of their shortcomings of physical anatomical parts, appearance, personalities, and present and past sins. And when it came to Hillary Clinton, Trump pushed it to the unrestrained claims of outright criminality of her past, current and future behavior, with threats of prosecution and potential imprisonment of upon him being elected.  

When it came to having only Hillary Clinton to focus on, all restraints, if any left, were abandoned and he had his supporters chanting “lock her up”, upon him inciting them repeatedly and often at his rallies that she was “crooked Hillary”; the mob passion at a fever pitch, Trump supporters bayed for blood as if she was some loathsome fearful witch from medieval times.

The more restrained Americans watched in horror, the radical right were in unrestrained full throated glee, while the World watched in rising disbelief the most shameful exposure of America’s least flattering characteristics, and the systematic destruction of the remnants of its tattered dignity.

Trump trenched an immoral, indecent, downright embarrassing deep trough through which he has dragged, kicking and screaming, first his Republican primaries fellow contestants, the Republican hopefuls, and later the Presidential Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, and of course us - the titillated and horrified outside of America spectators who can’t believe that we are actually seeing and hearing the things we are in this election, from those that are vying for the highest office in America, the most powerful nation on earth, and the leader of the free World.

Trump doesn’t really care about the damage being done to the American credibility in the international arena by this election, turned into a mud wrestling match by him, while he constantly berates the American leadership of being stupid and weak, and Obama being the worst President in the History of the US, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton being “the most corrupt ever”, in front of other countries, their populations, and their leaders - who by and large still respect America. 

None of those that have been in or close to this bloody combat - nothing-is-too-rude-or-off-limits-fight - with Trump, are ever going to be the same, and neither is the increasingly polarized and shocked, pleasantly (his core base and all Hillary-haters) or unpleasantly, the rest, American electorate. 

As the election draws to a close, political, economic ideological differences aside, and winning and losing aside, America, the Republican Party, his official opponents in the primaries, President Obama and his Administration, the media, the Pope, the women accusers of his alleged sexual assaults, the American Judge of Mexican parentage, all Mexicans, Hispanics, illegal immigrants, Muslims, China, American allies, NATO, the Generals, Iran, the Establishment, the moneyed and the privileged (except himself of course), the electoral system, and most of all Hillary Clinton - all have been savaged by Donald Trump.

As the final days roll by, we can expect Trump to stay true to form and continue to savage anything that may come to that ever ‘target seeking’ mind of his, and will unfortunately continue to drag America ever lower in dignity, decorum and democracy, to the disgust of ordinary Americans, and the shocking unseemly delight and horror of all observers not directly involved in the great blood sport that is the American Presidential Election, particularly this one.
