Trump, el presidente gánster

Trump, el presidente gánster

first_imgDe acuerdo con su papel en la sociedad capitalista, la mayoría de los altos funcionarios del gobierno, elegidos o nombrados, tienen cualidades de gánster. Estos funcionarios pasan gran parte de su tiempo conspirando esquemas con los ricos para estafar o atacar de otra manera a las masas populares. A diferencia de la mafia, deben obrar en el marco de la política capitalista.La mafia se diferencia del establecimiento capitalista en que no está obligada a cometer sus crímenes bajo cobertura legal. Al contrario, las actividades de la mafia ocurren fuera de los límites de la legalidad burguesa con el consentimiento silencioso de la clase dominante y sus agencias policiales. Además, los crímenes de la mafia son mucho menores que los crímenes del Pentágono, la CIA y el FBI.Dicho esto, entre los políticos burgueses con más cualidades de gánster, está Donald Trump. Él es un mimado multimillonario de bienes raíces que funciona ordenando a sus subordinadas/os, robando a contratistas y a trabajadoras/es. Cuando se ve atrapado en un error, moviliza a su ejército de abogados para que lo limpien.Ganó la presidencia utilizando su carrera televisiva como un trampolín y aprovechando la quiebra de la dirección del Partido Demócrata. Sus estrategas de campaña también se aprovecharon de la antidemocrática institución del Colegio Electoral para conseguir una victoria electoral mientras perdían el voto popular. (Hillary Clinton ciertamente era también una enemiga del pueblo, corrupta, militarista, propiedad de Wall Street).Presidencia como el camino hacia (más) riquezasTrump no sólo ha rehusado desprenderse de sus multimillonarios activos, sino que ha tratado de ganar aún más al estar en la Casa Blanca. Sigue instando a líderes y asociados extranjeros a quedarse en su hotel en Washington. Ha aumentado el costo de la membresía en el club de golf de Mar-a-Lago de $100.000 a $200.000. Ha rehusado publicar sus declaraciones de impuestos para así cubrir sus inversiones. Tiene negocios en Turquía, Azerbaiyán y otros lugares alrededor del mundo. Ha elaborado un plan de impuestos del cual él y sus compañeros magnates inmobiliarios cosecharán cientos de millones de dólares.Su hija, Ivanka Trump, sigue difundido su marca mundialmente. Su yerno y consejero principal Jared Kushner, mantiene su propio imperio inmobiliario. “Aunque el Sr. Kushner renunció en enero a su cargo de director ejecutivo en Kushner Companies”, informa el New York Times del 26 de abril, “sigue siendo el beneficiario de los fideicomisos que poseen el creciente negocio de bienes raíces. La firma ha participado en aproximadamente $7 mil millones en adquisiciones durante la última década, muchas de ellas respaldadas por socios extranjeros cuyas identidades no revela”.Ahora este bufón derechista, autoritario y fanfarrón, que no sabe nada de política burguesa y no tiene ninguna inclinación de aprender o buscar consejo, está formalmente a cargo del imperialismo estadounidense.Cuando Trump mete al capitalismo estadounidense en problemas con sus aliados imperialistas estadounidenses en la OTAN, o amenaza los intereses corporativos al hablar de las guerras comerciales con la República Popular China (1.3 mil millones de habitantes), Canadá y México (los dos mayores mercados comerciales de EUA), no puede conseguir que el Congreso Republicano quite asistencia de salud a 24 millones de personas, o apruebe una prohibición de viajar contra musulmanes que provoca un movimiento mundial, o amenaza con provocar una rebelión masiva diciendo que deportará a 11 millones de trabajadoras/es indocumentados, etc., todos sus subordinados, lacayos y abogados no pueden ayudarle a salir del problema.La clase dominante está ambivalente acerca de Trump – con razón. Por un lado, están salivando sobre su recorte de impuestos para multimillonarios y grandes corporaciones. Están extáticos por su campaña de desregulación que permite, entre otras cosas, a las compañías de carbón envenenar el agua potable, destruir las normas de emisiones de autos para ayudar a la industria automovilística y eliminar las regulaciones ambientales para ayudar a la gran industria. Y, por supuesto, les encanta sus exenciones tributarias para las compañías de seguros de salud.Por otro lado, se sienten frustrados porque esperaban obtener grandes exenciones tributarias a partir de la revocación de la Ley de Cuidado de Salud a Bajo Precio, y querían poner sus manos en $880 miles de millones en recortes de Medicaid para que se  financiaran incentivos fiscales para los ricos. Sin embargo, aunque la clase dominante quiere aprovecharse de los recortes tributarios de Trump y las  desregulaciones, no quieren que arruine su sistema. Por eso han tomado medidas contra él. Primero, lo han rodeado de generales y banqueros de Wall Street en la Casa Blanca y el Gabinete.Limitan presupuesto de Trump y rechazan NAFTAPero últimamente le han dado una paliza en las negociaciones presupuestarias. En el último presupuesto de $1,2 billones, Trump salió con las manos vacías, a pesar de toda su gritería. En las negociaciones, Trump fue rechazado por los representantes fieles de la clase dominante en el Congreso sobre cuestiones clave:El gasto interno aumentó, en lugar de los $18.000 millones en recortes exigidos por Trump.Trump quería que el presupuesto nacional de los Institutos de Salud se redujera en $1.2 miles de millones. En cambio, se incrementó en 2.000 millones de dólares.Trump pidió que el presupuesto de la Agencia de Protección Ambiental se redujera en un 33 por ciento. En cambio, se redujo en un 1 por ciento.Planned Parenthood continuará siendo financiado a los niveles actuales en estados que no voten para retirar la subvención.Trump pidió $30.000 millones en aumento del gasto militar. Consiguió $12.500 millones y otros $2.500 millones cuando presente un plan para derrotar al grupo del Estado islámico.No hay dinero para su amado Muro de la Frontera; sólo fondos de seguridad fronteriza para nuevas tecnologías y reparaciones; de hecho, los fondos para la “seguridad fronteriza” se redujeron y no hubo dinero para una fuerza de deportación.Los subsidios de salud para los pobres seguirán (el dinero va a las compañías de seguros).“El gobierno de Trump dijo que ya no estaba considerando retirarse del TLCNA, después de un día de intenso cabildeo de líderes empresariales y legisladores que se unieron para anular la discusión interna de la Casa Blanca sobre la perspectiva”, escribió el Wall Street Journal el 27 de abril. Trump se vio obligado a llamar a los presidentes de México y Canadá para decirles que había abandonado la derogación. Luego emitió un tuit diciendo que lo habían llamado, en lugar de admitir que los grandes negocios y la agroindustria lo habían obligado a retroceder.Trump, China y la RPDCWashington está en medio de una crisis en Corea. Aunque necesita la cooperación del régimen surcoreano para perseguir su agenda beligerante, Trump aprovechó este momento para decirle al gobierno surcoreano que quiere romper el acuerdo comercial con su país. Es un “mal acuerdo” negociado por el presidente Obama, según Trump. En realidad, fue negociado bajo George W. Bush.Empeorando las cosas, Trump le dijo al gobierno de Corea del Sur que tendría que pagar $1 mil millones para el sistema antimisiles THAAD del Pentágono, a pesar del acuerdo existente en que EUA pagaría el costo de su despliegue. El Asesor de Seguridad Nacional, General H. McMaster tuvo que telefonear a funcionarios  surcoreanos y asegurarles que EUA pagaría. (WSJ, 30 de abril)Trump tiene una visión excesiva de sus poderes personales. Afirma tener una buena relación con el presidente Xi Jinping de la República Popular de China. Afirma que debido a sus llamadas telefónicas con Xi, China va a ayudar al gobierno de EUA a salir de su situación con la desafiante República Popular Democrática de Corea.Trump ha tratado de hablar suave con China y duro con la RPDC. Pero la verdad es que los líderes de la República Popular China, especialmente su ejército, el Ejército Popular de Liberación, no pueden ignorar los hechos imperantes de la crisis en la península coreana.En una llamada telefónica el 23 de abril, el presidente Xi pidió a Trump que se abstuviera de aumentar las tensiones en la región, incluso si la RPDC anunciaba pruebas de misiles o armas nucleares. Xi hizo un llamado a Trump para que no se entretenga en disputas y se mueva hacia negociaciones.Evidentemente, no estamos de acuerdo con Xi en que la RPDC debe presionarse para que abandone su lucha por construir un elemento de disuasión nuclear. Pero, de todas formas, el jefe de la República Popular China pidió a Trump que bajara el tono.Un día después, el 24 de abril, en plena noche, EUA desplegó en Corea del Sur el sistema anti-misiles THAAD, que está equipado con un radar de alta potencia que llega más allá de la RPDC y puede ser utilizado para espiar el Ejército chino. La República Popular China ya ha dicho que este despliegue desestabilizaría el equilibrio estratégico en la región a favor del imperialismo estadounidense.El liderazgo chino y el EPL están conscientes de la amenaza. No puede ser coincidencia que el mismo día del despliegue, China probó su primer portaaviones de fabricación nacional. El buque se completará en 2020. “China ha lanzado su primer portaaviones construido por sí sola, en una demostración de la creciente sofisticación técnica de sus industrias de defensa y la determinación de salvaguardar sus reivindicaciones territoriales marítimas y rutas comerciales cruciales. El transportador de 50.000 toneladas fue remolcado de su astillero justo después de las 9 de la mañana del miércoles.” (Washington Post, 26 de abril)Pero el mensaje implícito es que China tiene su propio poder naval, incluyendo un portaaviones armado y funcional construido por la ex-URRS que obtuvo de Ucrania y fue restaurado. China contuvo su respuesta a Trump y al Pentágono al no desplegar su portaaviones armado y desplegar en su lugar el aún sin terminar. Pero el mensaje fue enviado.Lo que también queda claro de estos acontecimientos es que el imperialismo estadounidense y el Pentágono son los enemigos tanto de la RPDC como de la República Popular China. El Pentágono obra por venganza contra la RPDC porque este heroico país socialista se ha enfrentado sin temor a Washington, tan firmemente ahora como lo hizo durante la Guerra de Corea de 1950-53, cuando rechazó la poderosa máquina de guerra estadounidense.El imperialismo estadounidense también se opone a la República Popular China porque, a pesar del crecimiento de millonarios y multimillonarios capitalistas dentro del país socialista, el Partido Comunista de China y el Ejército Popular de Liberación siguen siendo guardianes de las empresas estatales y de la planificación económica que son características del socialismo.Washington se da cuenta de que mientras el imperialismo estadounidense está sumido en el estancamiento económico y crisis militares y políticas en todo el mundo, China se está fortaleciendo cada vez más, tanto económica como militarmente. Está aumentando su influencia en Asia, África y América Latina a través de proyectos de infraestructura que ayudan a las antiguas colonias a superar el subdesarrollo impuesto por los imperialistas.En un momento en que el imperialismo de EUA está fuera de balance tanto en el país como en el exterior, la clase dominante capitalista tiene que mantener a raya a su presidente gánster, para que no aumente la inestabilidad de Washington.A pesar de todos los intentos de la clase dominante de distanciarse de Trump, el gobierno capitalista es el comité ejecutivo de la clase dominante. Karl Marx lo dijo hace mucho tiempo, y todavía es cierto hoy en día.Hay muchas maneras en que los patronos podrían deshacerse de él, dada toda la ilegalidad de su régimen de enriquecimiento familiar. Sin embargo, la clase dominante es la responsable de mantener a Trump en el cargo y por cada acción racista y reaccionaria que éste haga. Trump es el representante de su clase, y las masas deben responsabilizar a los capitalistas por cada crimen que comete contra el pueblo.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Later, in 1983, she opened Mobley Business at her home and then moved to a downtown location. She purchased a building but did few renovations because she wanted to preserve the integrity of the downtown landmark.

‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett hit with 16 count felony indictment by grand jury

‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett hit with 16 count felony indictment by grand jury

first_imgNuccio DiNuzzo/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — An Illinois grand jury has indicted “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett on 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report, according to the Cook County State Attorney’s Office.The grand jury returned two separate sets of charges, Robert Foley, a senior advisor in the state attorney’s office told ABC News.The first set is related to what Smollett told officers about the alleged attack, including that the attackers called him racial and homophobic slurs, struck him with their hands, put a noose around his neck, and poured some sort of chemical substance on him.The second set of charges are related to the second interview Smollett had with police about the alleged attack later that day.The new set of charges each carry a possible sentence of probation to four years, according to WLS. Smollett already pleaded not guilty to the first disorderly conduct charge. He was taken into custody and posted $100,000 bond to be freed.Smollett told police he was attacked by two masked men near his apartment in Chicago at around 2 a.m. on Jan. 29. The two men, Smollett initially said, shouted racist and homophobic slurs at him as a rope was wrapped around his neck and an unknown chemical substance was poured on him. The alleged assailants yelled “MAGA country,” a reference to President Donald Trump’s “Make American Great Again” slogan, police were told.Police identified and questioned two “persons of interest” captured on surveillance video near the scene around the time of the alleged attack. The men, Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo, were arrested on Feb. 13 but then released without charges, with police saying they were no longer considered suspects.While being questioned by investigators, the brothers claimed that Smollett paid them $3,500 to help orchestrate and stage the crime after he became upset that a letter threatening him, sent Jan. 22 to the Fox studio where the television series “Empire” is filmed, did not get enough attention, law enforcement sources told ABC News.Smollett, who has consistently denied any role in staging the supposed crime, turned himself last month.A judge set bond at $100,000 and ordered Smollett to surrender his passport. The actor, who pleaded not guilty, was released after posting 10 percent of his bond.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

These NYC neighborhoods lost housing in the past decade

These NYC neighborhoods lost housing in the past decade

first_img Share via Shortlink Tags Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink (iStock/Illustration by Kevin Rebong for The Real Deal)Despite the preponderance of new buildings that have risen in New York in the past 10 years, the city added only 206,000 housing units over that period of time — and in some upscale enclaves, housing was actually lost.A recent analysis from the Department of City Planning, first reported by The City, looked at all housing construction and demolition jobs approved by the Department of Buildings since 2010. The report looked at data through June 2020.According to the analysis, most neighborhoods in the city added some housing units, with those close to transit accounting for much of that growth. Areas that had been rezoned — Hudson Yards, Long Island City, Williamsburg and Downtown Brooklyn — added as many as 65 new units per acre.But wealthier enclaves saw losses. On the Upper East Side, more than 2,000 residential units were built in the past decade, but since many owners combined units, the overall amount of housing decreased.The Upper East Side wasn’t alone; the stretch of the Upper West Side next to Central Park, much of Soho and the West Village lost between half a unit and six units per acre, on average, over the 10-year period, according to the report. Alterations and combinations of units accounted for the losses in those areas, too.“People see housing demand when it spreads vertically — when buildings pop up, when you see new construction — but what they don’t see is that the demand for housing also spreads horizontally,” Howard Slatkin, deputy executive director for strategic planning at the Department of City Planning, told The City. “In the absence of those new additions, as affluent people take more space and larger residences for themselves, what you get is a reduction in total housing units.”The findings come about New York mayoral candidates are making housing production a key talking point in their campaigns. Some wealthier areas of New York are seeing a push for more affordable housing, including Soho, where a proposed rezoning could allow for more residential housing.[The City] — Keith Larsen Residential Real Estatesohoupper east sideWest Villagelast_img read more

Dannatt’s comments came as he outlined the latest advances in advanced naval electrical technology from a GE perspective. “Working with the world’s leading navies gives us what may be a unique perspective on the trends that are emerging and a view into the future. Our systems include some of the most advanced and respected solutions in every part of the power generation and drive train from our gas turbines and diesel engines through power distribution systems, variable speed drives, generators and propulsion motors to automation and control systems, which means that we get to see and set trends when they are still in their infancy.”International trade, global security, energy exploration, recovery and delivery, tourism and leisure; all rely on the world’s seas and oceans that link cities and population centers and all rely on the ships that achieve these diverse objectives. Maritime operations, regardless of role or specialty, require ships which are operationally dependable, financially efficient and which respect the environment in terms of emissions and fuel economy.The world’s navies are not exempt from these operational, financial and environmental imperatives—in fact, they often are more exposed to the scrutiny of politicians, taxpayers and an environmentally aware public than some of their commercial counterparts.Against this background, Captain Dannatt believes that we have entered the age of electrically powered and propelled warships and support vessels. “It’s increasingly common for naval ship designers to be directed to give increased weighting to through life costs of naval ships including fuel consumption and routine maintenance costs based on their selected power and propulsion options,” says Dannatt. “These studies often conclude that some form of electrical propulsion is worthy of further investigation based not only on fuel and maintenance costs but also on the consequential impact on improvements in ship availability and extended operational autonomy”.GE’s Power Conversion business provides complete power and propulsion system packages, including prime movers, power generation, electrical distribution and fixed or variable speed drives, including motors for propulsion, thrusters and specialist applications.The company’s expertise in ship power and propulsion systems ranges from the manufacture and supply of power generation systems to integrated full electric propulsion systems and, increasingly, hybrid propulsion systems.Many of the world’s leading navies are now employing some form of electric propulsion somewhere in their fleets—the decision making process leading to the selection of this technology commonly follows detailed design studies supported by Power Conversion including feasibility studies into the various alternative propulsion concepts and an in depth analysis of technical, operational and through life support parameters.GE acquired Power Conversion (then known as Converteam) in September 2011. GE’s Power Conversion business applies the science and systems of power conversion to help drive the electric transformation of the world’s energy infrastructure. Designing and delivering advanced motor, drive and control technologies that evolve today’s industrial processes for a cleaner, more productive future, it serves specialized sectors such as energy, marine, industry and all related services.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, November 20, 2012; Image: GE France: GE Systems to Set New Standards in Electrical Naval Propulsion Back to overview,Home naval-today France: GE Systems to Set New Standards in Electrical Naval Propulsion last_img read more
