Trump Presidente

Messaggio Da Erasmus il Gio Nov 10, 2016 12:11 am

Trascrivo da l'Espresso l'articolo di Roberto Castaldi
Ma prima cito un passo significativo di un artlcolo  di Sergio Romano scritto qualche giorno prima dell'esito delle elezioni americane [Lnedì 07 novembre, Corriere della Sera]

“Dobbiamo prepararci ad affrontare circostanze in cui non sarà né possibile né saggio fare affidamento sugli Stati Uniti. E dobbiamo evitare che il vuoto lasciato dal declino della loro leadership venga riempito dalle ambizioni e dall’avventurismo di altre potenze. La risposta a questo problema può essere data soltanto da una Europa unita e solidale. Mai ne abbiamo avuto altrettanto bisogno”

Noi, europei
di Roberto Castaldi 

09 nov 2016   




Donald Trump sarà il prossimo presidente degli Stati Uniti d’America, dopo una delle campagne elettorali più divisive e volgari che si ricordino. Le borse del mondo hanno accolto la notizia con forti cali. Come con la Brexit, i sondaggi e le borse non avevano saputo prevedere l’esito finale, preferendo adagiarsi nel “wishful thinking”, ovvero nel confondere i propri desiderata con la realtà.



Il problema vero è che nessuno sa cosa succederà adesso. Trump ha detto tutto e il contrario di tutto durante la campagna elettorale. Ha insultato praticamente tutti gli alleati americani e strizzato l’occhio alla Russia di Putin. Non ha una storia politica pregressa che possa aiutare a capirne il vero pensiero. A parte il taglio delle tasse per i miliardari – cioè anche per se stesso – non si sa davvero quali potranno essere le sue politiche. Il mondo è interessato soprattutto alla politica economica, estera e ambientale degli USA, che hanno necessariamente un impatto globale.
Saranno decisivi gli uomini (e le donne?) di cui Trump si circonderà, e il grado di influenza che il Partito Repubblicano potrà esercitare sulla nuova Amministrazione. Probabilmente sarà limitato, poiché gran parte dei maggiorenti repubblicani si è schierata contro Trump, che ha promesso di azzerare completamente la classe dirigente di Washington. Sarà forse il più grande test per il sistema dei “checks and balances” creato dai padri fondatori per evitare derive autoritarie. Trump avrà di fronte un Congresso in cui i Repubblicani controlleranno sia la Camera dei Rappresentanti che il Senato, e dovrà nominare il giudice mancante della Corte Suprema – dove attualmente sono in egual numero i giudici liberal e quelli conservatori - garantendo anche nella massima istituzione di garanzia una maggioranza conservatrice e repubblicana.
Per il mondo e l’Europa si apre una fase molto incerta e pericolosa. Durante la Presidenza di George W. Bush la maggioranza degli europei pensava che il Paese che costituiva il  maggior pericolo per la pace e la sicurezza nel mondo fossero gli USA! È possibile che lo stesso accada per i prossimi 4 anni, ma con una differenza fondamentale. Allora gli europei criticavano una politica estera troppo assertiva in un contesto che non presentava per gli europei sfide fondamentali sul piano della sicurezza. Oggi gli europei sono accerchiati da focolai di tensione e le prese di posizione di Trump al riguardo indicano che gli USA non muoveranno un dito. L’indipendenza dei Paesi baltici, membri dell’UE, il cui spazio aereo viene ripetutamente violato da aerei militari russi negli ultimi mesi, dovrà essere garantita dagli europei. La disponibilità della Russia ad usare la forza è sotto gli occhi di tutti: dall’annessione della Crimea, alla guerra in Ucraina, all’intervento in Siria a sostegno di Assad. La stabilizzazione di Turchia, Medio Oriente e Nord Africa – da cui dipende il controllo e la riduzione dei flussi di rifugiati e il contenimento del terrorismo islamico – sarà un nostro problema. La NATO servirà come luogo di incontro in cui gli americani chiederanno agli europei di spendere di più per la difesa e prendersi le proprie responsabilità. È importante dunque che gli europei accelerino sull’integrazione sul piano della difesa, e creino rapidamente il centro di comando unificato – ma non a Bruxelles, dove sarebbe fagocitato dalla NATO, bensì a Strasburgo, al posto della seconda sede del Parlamento Europeo, che tutti vorrebbero abolire, scontrandosi finora con il veto francese. I Paesi dell’UE nel loro insieme hanno la 2° spesa militare del mondo, grosso modo analoga alla Cina e maggiore della Russia, ma con una capacità minima. Una difesa europea unificata permetterebbe enormi economie di scala e specializzazioni e aumenterebbe notevolmente la nostra capacità di affrontare le drammmatiche sfide sul piano della sicurezza, anche con lo stesso livello di spesa militare.
In Asia non c’è un sistema di sicurezza collettiva, e una Presidenza Trump potrebbe portare al riarmo di Giappone e Corea del Sud – sempre più insicure rispetto all’effettività della garanzia americana sulla loro sicurezza in un contesto sempre più volatile - e una possibile corsa agli armamenti in tutto l’estremo oriente. Questo contribuirà ad accelerare ulteriormente l’ascesa militare della Cina, che continua ad avere contenziosi territoriali con i propri vicini e ad aumentare le sue spese militari, anche in vista di un potenziale ruolo egemonico a livello mondiale.
Gli accordi sul clima e gli accordi commerciali firmati dagli USA di recente rischiano di non essere ratificati, con gravi ripercussioni sulla lotta ai cambiamenti climatici e sull’economia mondiale. Si allontana la prospettiva di un rafforzamento della governance globale, e delle istituzioni internazionali multilaterali, ovvero del tentativo di affrontare i maggiori problemi globali in forma cooperativa e di tentare di fornire alcuni beni pubblici mondiali come appunto il commercio, una migliore regolamentazione della finanza, la sicurezza e la stabilità dell'ordine mondiale, e la lotta al cambiamento climatico. Le opzioni preferite da Trump sembrano quella tipiche della realpolitik: duro confronto ed eventualmente accordi bi-laterali con le maggiori grandi potenze anche a scapito dei propri alleati minori; utilizzo dell'egemonia militare per ridurre i costi sugli altri dossier, da scaricare sul resto del mondo. Rischia di essere un mondo più ottocentesco, ma senza un ruolo centrale per gli europei, e con rischi di proliferazione nucleare e terrorismo che allora non c’erano e il cui principale bersaglio potenziale è proprio l’Europa.
Sul piano politico la vittoria di Trump, dopo la Brexit, contribuisce a gonfiare le vele del nazionalismo in salsa populista. Le pulsioni alla chiusura nella nostra società sono assai simili a quelle che dopo la Prima Guerra Mondiale portarono a regimi fascisti in vari Paesi europei. Protagonista la piccola borghesia – la mitica classe media - impaurita nella morsa tra il divario crescente con la grande borghesia da un lato (oggi la finanza) e il proletariato in ascesa dall’altro (oggi i migranti), che metteva in questione il ruolo di quella classe nella società. La sfida tra società aperta e pulsioni alla chiusura – che in situazioni estreme, con gravi minacce sul piano della difesa o guerre possono sfociare nelle peggiori violazioni dei diritti umani che la storia ricordi, come avvenuto con l’Olocausto – si combatte oggi in Europa.
Da un lato c’è una proposta politica aggressiva fondata su ricette tanto semplici quanto illusorie, che cavalca le paure e i timori della gente e promette un cambiamento radicale. Dall’altro una classe politica ancora arroccata a difesa del potere nazionale e quindi di uno status quo insoddisfacente non in grado di affrontare le grandi sfide sul piano economico e della sicurezza. Le forze che hanno a cuore il progetto della Modernità - fondato sul tentativo di coniugare laicità, liberalismo, democrazia e socialismo - hanno un disperato bisogno di un progetto unificante, di una prospettiva di cambiamento costruttiva e ragionevole, che possa ridare speranza e futuro alla nostra società.
Il fatto che i giovani siano i più favorevoli all’integrazione europea è già un’indicazione di quale possa essere l’unico progetto credibile per arginare i nazionalismi populisti e salvare democrazia e società aperta. Dopo la Brexit e Trump serve un colpo d'ala delle leadership politiche europee. Renzi è oggi concentrato sul referendum e la vittoria di Trump sarà usata da Salvini e altri contro di lui. La ripresa dell'iniziativa sul piano europeo, nel solco dell'incontro di Ventotene e della prospettiva federalista di Spinelli, potrebbe contribuire ad affrontare la nuova situazione internazionale, ma anche a rafforzarne la credibilità personale agli occhi dei cittadini preoccupati dai risultati delle elezioni americane.

Parole sante, ma questo era già chiaro da ben prima che arrivasse 'sto Trump a sconvolgere tutto.
La logica dice di procedere come descritto nell'articolo, e non da poco, ma i rincoglioniti che abbiamo al potere negli stati principali saranno davvero di questo avviso o penseranno che basta qualche ritocchino secondario alla struttura attuale e tutto continuerà ad andar bene così?

L'unica cosa su cui non concordo è di aprire la sede del centro di comando unificato a Strasburgo: se la volontà degli stati è di fare sul serio non ci sarà NATO che tenga a poter fagocitare niente. La sede delle strutture embrionali già esistenti di pianificazione comune (in pratica lo SMEU) è già oggi a Bruxelles.

Una nota secondaria, giusto per curiosità: non è vero che la Cina ha una spesa militare più o meno uguale a quella complessiva dell'UE, o almeno questo è difficile da stabilire con certezza dato che i bilanci ufficiali in molti paesi (anche alcuni europei, fra cui l'Italia) non rispecchiano il vero livello di spesa militare complessiva.

Non  per tutti la vittoria di Trump è stata una sorpresa!


Ecco uno [Michael Moore, Oscar and Emmy-winning Director] che, con un mese di anticipo, era sicuro che avrebbe vinto Trump.
E ci aveva spiegato in anticipo perché!

Da notare che costui è uno che disprezza fortemente Trump.
Concude dicendo che Trump ha il suo  "tallone d'Achille", e  in un prossimo articolo scriverà come lo si può colpire.

THE HUFFNGTON POST
5 Reasons why Trump will win

07/23/2016 03:45 pm ET | Updated Oct 10, 2016  

by Michael Moore    
Oscar and Emmy-winning Director 

Friends:
I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I gave it to you straight last summer when I told you that Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee for president. And now I have even more awful, depressing news for you: Donald J. Trump is going to win in November. This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full time sociopath is going to be our next president. President Trump. Go ahead and say the words, ‘cause you’ll be saying them for the next four years: “PRESIDENT TRUMP.”

Never in my life have I wanted to be proven wrong more than I do right now.
I can see what you’re doing right now. You’re shaking your head wildly - “No, Mike, this won’t happen!” Unfortunately, you are living in a bubble that comes with an adjoining echo chamber where you and your friends are convinced the American people are not going to elect an idiot for president. You alternate between being appalled at him and laughing at him because of his latest crazy comment or his embarrassingly narcissistic stance on everything because everything is about him. And then you listen to Hillary and you behold our very first female president, someone the world respects, someone who is whip-smart and cares about kids, who will continue the Obama legacy because that is what the American people clearly want! Yes! Four more years of this!

You need to exit that bubble right now. You need to stop living in denial and face the truth which you know deep down is very, very real. Trying to soothe yourself with the facts - “77% of the electorate are women, people of color, young adults under 35 and Trump cant win a majority of any of them!“ - or logic - “people aren’t going to vote for a buffoon or against their own best interests!“ - is your brain’s way of trying to protect you from trauma. Like when you hear a loud noise on the street and you think, “oh, a tire just blew out,” or, “wow, who’s playing with firecrackers?” because you don’t want to think you just heard someone being shot with a gun. It’s the same reason why all the initial news and eyewitness reports on 9/11 said “a small plane accidentally flew into the World Trade Center.” We want to - we need to - hope for the best because, frankly, life is already a shit show and it’s hard enough struggling to get by from paycheck to paycheck. 
We can’t handle much more bad news. So our mental state goes to default when something scary is actually, truly happening. The first people plowed down by the truck in Nice spent their final moments on earth waving at the driver whom they thought had simply lost control of his truck, trying to tell him that he jumped the curb: “Watch out!,” they shouted. “There are people on the sidewalk!”

Well, folks, this isn’t an accident. It is happening. And if you believe Hillary Clintonis going to beat Trump with facts and smarts and logic, then you obviously missed the past year of 56 primaries and caucuses where 16 Republican candidates tried that and every kitchen sink they could throw at Trump and nothing could stop his juggernaut. As of today, as things stand now, I believe this is going to happen - and in order to deal with it, I need you first to acknowledge it, and then maybe, just maybe, we can find a way out of the mess we’re in.
Don’t get me wrong. I have great hope for the country I live in.
Things are better. The left has won the cultural wars. Gays and lesbians can get married. A majority of Americans now take the liberal position on just about every polling question posed to them: Equal pay for women - check. Abortion should be legal - check. Stronger environmental laws - check. More gun control - check. Legalize marijuana - check. A huge shift has taken place - just ask the socialist who won 22 states this year. And there is no doubt in my mind that if people could vote from their couch at home on their X-box or PlayStation, Hillary would win in a landslide.

But that is not how it works in America. People have to leave the house and get in line to vote. And if they live in poor, Black or Hispanic neighborhoods, they not only have a longer line to wait in, everything is being done to literally stop them from casting a ballot. So in most elections it’s hard to get even 50% to turn out to vote. And therein lies the problem for November - who is going to have the most motivated, most inspired voters show up to vote? You know the answer to this question.
Who’s the candidate with the most rabid supporters? Whose crazed fans are going to be up at 5 AM on Election Day, kicking ass all day long, all the way until the last polling place has closed, making sure every Tom, Dick and Harry (and Bob and Joe and Billy Bob and Billy Joe and Billy Bob Joe) has cast his ballot? That’s right. That’s the high level of danger we’re in. And don’t fool yourself — no amount of compelling Hillary TV ads, or outfacting him in the debates or Libertarians siphoning votes away from Trump is going to stop his mojo.

“You need to stop living in denial and face the truth which you know deep down is very, very real.”

Here are the 5 reasons Trump is going to win:
1. Midwest Math, or Welcome to Our Rust Belt Brexit
 I believe Trump is going to focus much of his attention on the four blue states in the rustbelt of the upper Great Lakes - Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Four traditionally Democratic states - but each of them have elected a Republican governor since 2010 (only Pennsylvania has now finally elected a Democrat). In the Michigan primary in March, more Michiganders came out to vote for the Republicans (1.32 million) that the Democrats (1.19 million). Trump is ahead of Hillary in the latest polls in Pennsylvania and tied with her in Ohio. Tied? How can the race be this close after everything Trump has said and done? Well maybe it’s because he’s said (correctly) that the Clintons’ support of NAFTA helped to destroy the industrial states of the Upper Midwest. Trump is going to hammer Clinton on this and her support of TPP and other trade policies that have royally screwed the people of these four states. When Trump stood in the shadow of a Ford Motor factory during the Michigan primary, he threatened the corporation that if they did indeed go ahead with their planned closure of that factory and move it to Mexico, he would slap a 35% tariff on any Mexican-built cars shipped back to the United States. It was sweet, sweet music to the ears of the working class of Michigan, and when he tossed in his threat to Apple that he would force them to stop making their iPhones in China and build them here in America, well, hearts swooned and Trump walked away with a big victory that should have gone to the governor next-door, John Kasich.

From Green Bay to Pittsburgh, this, my friends, is the middle of England - broken, depressed, struggling, the smokestacks strewn across the countryside with the carcass of what we use to call the Middle Class. Angry, embittered working (and nonworking) people who were lied to by the trickle-down of Reagan and abandoned by Democrats who still try to talk a good line but are really just looking forward to rub one out with a lobbyist from Goldman Sachs who’ll write them nice big check before leaving the room. What happened in the UK with Brexit is going to happen here. Elmer Gantry shows up looking like Boris Johnson and just says whatever shit he can make up to convince the masses that this is their chance! To stick to ALL of them, all who wrecked their American Dream! And now The Outsider, Donald Trump, has arrived to clean house! You don’t have to agree with him! You don’t even have to like him! He is your personal Molotov cocktail to throw right into the center of the bastards who did this to you! SEND A MESSAGE! TRUMP IS YOUR MESSENGER!


And this is where the math comes in. In 2012, Mitt Romney lost by 64 electoral votes. Add up the electoral votes cast by Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. It’s 64. All Trump needs to do to win is to carry, as he’s expected to do, the swath of traditional red states from Idaho to Georgia (states that’ll never vote for Hillary Clinton), and then he just needs these four rust belt states. He doesn’t need Florida. He doesn’t need Colorado or Virginia. Just Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. And that will put him over the top. This is how it will happen in November.

2. The Last Stand of the Angry White Man
 Our male-dominated, 240-year run of the USA is coming to an end. A woman is about to take over! How did this happen?! On our watch! There were warning signs, but we ignored them. Nixon, the gender traitor, imposing Title IX on us, the rule that said girls in school should get an equal chance at playing sports. Then they let them fly commercial jets. Before we knew it, Beyoncé stormed on the field at this year’s Super Bowl (our game!) with an army of Black Women, fists raised, declaring that our domination was hereby terminated! Oh, the humanity!
That’s a small peek into the mind of the Endangered White Male. There is a sense that the power has slipped out of their hands, that their way of doing things is no longer how things are done.
This monster, the “Feminazi,”the thing that as Trump says, “bleeds through her eyes or wherever she bleeds,” has conquered us — and now, after having had to endure eight years of a black man telling us what to do, we’re supposed to just sit back and take eight years of a woman bossing us around? After that it’ll be eight years of the gays in the White House! Then the transgenders! You can see where this is going. By then animals will have been granted human rights and a fuckin’ hamster is going to be running the country. This has to stop!

3. The Hillary Problem. Can we speak honestly, just among ourselves? And before we do, let me state, I actually like Hillary - a lot - and I think she has been given a bad rap she doesn’t deserve. But her vote for the Iraq War made me promise her that I would never vote for her again. To date, I haven’t broken that promise. For the sake of preventing a proto-fascist from becoming our commander-in-chief, I’m breaking that promise. I sadly believe Clinton will find a way to get us in some kind of military action. She’s a hawk, to the right of Obama. But Trump’s psycho finger will be on The Button, and that is that. Done and done.

Let’s face it: Our biggest problem here isn’t Trump - it’s Hillary. She is hugely unpopular — nearly 70% of all voters think she is untrustworthy and dishonest. She represents the old way of politics, not really believing in anything other than what can get you elected. That’s why she fights against gays getting married one moment, and the next she’s officiating a gay marriage. Young women are among her biggest detractors, which has to hurt considering it’s the sacrifices and the battles that Hillary and other women of her generation endured so that this younger generation would never have to be told by the Barbara Bushes of the world that they should just shut up and go bake some cookies.
But the kids don’t like her, and not a day goes by that a millennial doesn’t tell me they aren’t voting for her. No Democrat, and certainly no independent, is waking up on November 8th excited to run out and vote for Hillary the way they did the day Obama became president or when Bernie was on the primary ballot. The enthusiasm just isn’t there. And because this election is going to come down to just one thing — who drags the most people out of the house and gets them to the polls — Trump right now is in the catbird seat.

4. The Depressed Sanders Vote.
Stop fretting about Bernie’s supporters not voting for Clinton - we’re voting for Clinton! The polls already show that more Sanders voters will vote for Hillary this year than the number of Hillary primary voters in ‘08 who then voted for Obama. This is not the problem. The fire alarm that should be going off is that while the average Bernie backer will drag him/herself to the polls that day to somewhat reluctantly vote for Hillary, it will be what’s called a “depressed vote” - meaning the voter doesn’t bring five people to vote with her. He doesn’t volunteer 10 hours in the month leading up to the election. She never talks in an excited voice when asked why she’s voting for Hillary. A depressed voter. Because, when you’re young, you have zero tolerance for phonies and BS. Returning to the Clinton/Bush era for them is like suddenly having to pay for music, or using MySpace or carrying around one of those big-ass portable phones. They’re not going to vote for Trump; some will vote third party, but many will just stay home. Hillary Clinton is going to have to do something to give them a reason to support her — and picking a moderate, bland-o, middle of the road old white guy as her running mate is not the kind of edgy move that tells millenials that their vote is important to Hillary. Having two women on the ticket - that was an exciting idea. But then Hillary got scared and has decided to play it safe. This is just one example of how she is killing the youth vote.

5. The Jesse Ventura Effect
Finally, do not discount the electorate’s ability to be mischievous or underestimate how any millions fancy themselves as closet anarchists once they draw the curtain and are all alone in the voting booth. It’s one of the few places left in society where there are no security cameras, no listening devices, no spouses, no kids, no boss, no cops, there’s not even a friggin’ time limit. You can take as long as you need in there and no one can make you do anything. You can push the button and vote a straight party line, or you can write in Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. There are no rules. And because of that, and the anger that so many have toward a broken political system, millions are going to vote for Trump not because they agree with him, not because they like his bigotry or ego, but just because they can. Just because it will upset the apple cart and make mommy and daddy mad. And in the same way like when you’re standing on the edge of Niagara Falls and your mind wonders for a moment what would that feel like to go over that thing, a lot of people are going to love being in the position of puppetmaster and plunking down for Trump just to see what that might look like. Remember back in the ‘90s when the people of Minnesota elected a professional wrestler as their governor? They didn’t do this because they’re stupid or thought that Jesse Ventura was some sort of statesman or political intellectual. They did so just because they could. Minnesota is one of the smartest states in the country. It is also filled with people who have a dark sense of humor — and voting for Ventura was their version of a good practical joke on a sick political system. This is going to happen again with Trump.

Coming back to the hotel after appearing on Bill Maher’s Republican Convention special this week on HBO, a man stopped me. “Mike,” he said, “we have to vote for Trump. We HAVE to shake things up.” That was it. That was enough for him. To “shake things up.” President Trump would indeed do just that, and a good chunk of the electorate would like to sit in the bleachers and watch that reality show.

(Next week I will post my thoughts on Trump’s Achilles Heel and how I think he can be beat.)
