Trump’s UK Visit.

Standard

After influencers have been agitating for months, urging people to go out in the streets to show their hate for the US President, we now see the result! Thank you so much for putting a strain on our law enforcement personnel while advocating for total unrest all over the country. *Insert Sarcasm * I urge any person who might read my blog and follow me to stay safe. I send out my love to the British police today, who are constantly given impossible and difficult tasks to deal with.

This is how they will be accommodated as they try to protect those who protest: Terrible treatment of the UK Police.

The U.S. Embassy is telling Americans to keep a low profile during Trump’s visit. Stay Safe!

 

Some Interesting Articles To Read.

“Bishop Athanasius Schneider of Kazakhstan, 57, told an interviewer from Milan’s Il Giornale last week that “the phenomenon of so-called “immigration” represents an orchestrated and long-prepared plan by international powers to radically change the Christian and national identities of the European peoples.” (READ THE ARTICLE HERE)

This is the conclusion I’ve reached as well by simply looking at the placement of certain population groups within all of Europe’s Nations. It is obvious that it is a long term de-stabilisation plan by people who hate us to no end. 

I will let other people compile potential enemy lists over who could possibly be guilty… It’s not like people aren’t compiling these kind of lists already….

…some theories are more popular than others…..and will continue to gain ground by the hour I’m sure…….

(I’m personally not a big fan of conspiracy theories. I find a great number of them troubling, for the simple reason that it might make sense, but then it doesn’t if the accused group stand to lose. All I see are people who will lose in the end when reading or hearing of popular narratives of conspiracy. What would make sense would be to think broader, or maybe I overestimate people. In fact I’m suspecting that that might be the case. If I’m guilty of over-thinking then Europe & America are standing face to face with a threat that is shooting itself in the foot.)

With the current culture war and student movements on both sides of the Atlantic, not to forget the underground “scene” of self-taught individuals on the opposite political spectrum who openly blog or hack while being in “stealth mode,” I’m sure that boats will be rocked and alignments change, whether it is for the better or for the worst.

Loyalties might swiftly change and old narratives of friendship might suddenly be forgotten.

Leaders such as Sebastian Kurz & Matteo Salvini, not to forget “freedom fighters” such as the imprisoned Tommy Robinson are the kind of types that will salvage the mothership that is Europe. If they fail we will see the uprising of what their critics accuse them of being, “the great evil” that the mainstream media think they see in U.S. President Donald J.Trump. If the U.S.A. and Europe are not salvaged politically, there will be an attempt to do so from the bottom up. That is a given. There will always be those who refuse to give up. I predict that the situation in America will become especially dire in the years to come, unless the culture issue and the demographic issue is solved. 

So where does this strange self-destructive attitude we can observe in The Western World come from? Is it possible to manufacture Ethno-masochism? Well apparently yes…

Don’t expect that these type of initiatives won’t backfire though.

They do and they will. If your people win a fight, whether culturally, demographically or out on the battlefield, then you ought to remember how you won, because your enemies surely will!

And those who are clever will study closely, h-o-w y-o-u w-o-n!

The problem with Western culture today, is that we are neither equipped to deal with victory nor defeat. Or that is the aim of political correctness. The aim is clearly to pacify people and ensure that the fight or the battle is lost before it even starts.

The goal is obviously to have a Nation caving in on itself, self-annihilating, with the one institution falling after the other like domino bricks, and an angry populace wondering what the heck is going on, eventually resulting in violence in the streets and disorder, so that enemy elements placed within the Nation can initiate their part while their partners come in from the outside.

You have to be mean (by today standards) to win. People are inherently mean and people will be mean, even those who normally aren’t, the question is rather, can you be mean in a clever fashion without your operation backfiring either on you or your children?

That is the question and that is a good one indeed, all things considered.

I don’t really follow “trade wars” or “tariff wars” and find this quote to be interesting:

“The Commerce Department is currently investigating whether foreign auto imports pose a risk to national security.”

You can read more here: Germany Willing To Cut Tariffs.

Here is a genuine Russia collusion. I remember reading somewhere, sometime, somehow, about Russia providing energy to Eastern European Nations and using this politically, funny enough I didn’t catch that Western European Nations were in on it too… Maybe they should get their power from Norway instead 😛 Funny how everyone is spinning the Russia narrative as far as the U.S. is concerned when Europeans are blatantly dealing massively with the official “eternal-bad-guy-Putin.” Remember; everything is always Russia’s fault. Hilarious. I also recall that I read in a French newspaper, somewhere, sometime, somehow, that the then French President had lots of interests (or maybe it was France Inc.) in Iraq due to business dealings with Saddam, so their opposition to the war was not so much humanitarian as it was money related. Funny enough this story was confirmed when I read something else concerning the Iraq war….It is always interesting to figure out what drives people’s “official concern.” Lately I’ve been wondering why American celebrities don’t starve themselves for all of those kids who’ve been separated from their parents in inner-city America, but then again, I guess you have to come from anywhere but America for Hollywood to bother…..

Whether you dislike or like the current U.S. President I strongly recommend reading this: “Trump – The Art Of The Deal” by Donald J.Trump & Tony Schwartz.

Here is a most intriguing article from The New York Times: The New York Times Praising Donald J.Trump – before he ran for office.

Here are some selected quotes from the article, published in 1984….

“Donald J. Trump is the man of the hour.” – The New York Times.

“He deserves full credit for his success,’ says another builder.”

“Mayor Koch says that, indeed, what is good for Donald Trump is often good for New York.”

“To others, the notion that Mr. Trump seems to be able to do just about anything he sets his mind to is terrifying.”

“Roy M. Cohn, Mr. Trump’s friend and attorney, adds: ‘He has an uncanny sense of knowing that something is a good deal when it looks dismal to everyone else.”

“That Mr. Trump was able to obtain the location, when every real-estate developer in the world would have done just about anything to get it, is testimony to Donald Trump’s persistence and to his skills as a negotiator.” (my highlighting).

“He is an almost unbelievable negotiator,’ says Irving Fischer of HRH Construction. ‘I don’t worship at the shrine of Donald Trump,’ he says, ‘but our company has given up trying to negotiate costs with him. We just say: ‘Tell us what you want, you’re going to get it anyway.”

“He says that his concern for nuclear holocaust is not one that popped into his mind during any recent made-of-television movie. He says that it has been troubling him since his uncle, a nuclear physicist, began talking to him about it 15 years ago.”

“When he finally speaks up, he says hat he is on the commission because the young men who went to Vietnam got a bad deal – which, about the worst thing that can happen to anyone.”

“The day before he has sent $3,000 to an unfortunate family he has red about in the newspaper, something he does frequently, according to Mrs. Foerderer.”

“That Mr. Trump builds shops and apartments for the world’s wealthiest people makes him that much more prone to attack.”

“If you go with Donald to see an art collection, he’s not that interested. He’d rather look out the windows at building.”

“His wife describes him as an all-American boy who likes country music best and prefers a steak and aked potato to anything called cuisine.”

“Mrs. Trump says they like to attend Broadway openings an that they frequent the ballet and opera. Mrs. Trump is active in support of the United Cerebral Palsy Fund and other charities, as well as the New York City Opera. She is also an active supporter of Ronald Reagan.”

“He has dificulty now figuring out who his real friends are, as billionaires will.”

The White House Chief of Staff made waves online after untangling an American flag: “Once A Marine, Always A Marine.”

I enjoyed this article written by Steve Hilton until he wrote this:

“But we have to recognize that the melting pot is cracking. Years of uncontrolled immigration – and a creeping acceptance of separatism, boosted by identity politics – risk importing the disastrous doctrine of “multiculturalism” that is prevalent in Europe.”

The U.S.A. has been a multi-racial construct, arguably since the very beginning, with absolute “separatism,” before the federal government made segregation “illegal.” I say illegal, since people now self-segregate, which roughly means that the “melting-pot” never really worked on a street level. What I recognise in Europe is imported American multiculturalism, so I’m not sure which planet Hilton is living on… I find it annoying to see such lies in digital “print.”

Radical “multiculturalism” is a relatively new phenomenon in Europe. There is a reason as to why Europe never became Muslim and there is also a reason as to why we are so very pale……One foreigner now and then doesn’t really make much of a difference, but importing hordes of people will ruin the peace and comprise the integrity of your Nation.

It is especially dangerous if you mass import young men, who are in their “peak aggression” age.

Multiculturalism never really works, regardless of where in the world people try it, it always results in “separatism” and can only be held together by a rough, police state. It always results in fragmentation. Mixing on a large-scale only happens as a result of unhinged violence, where the men of one tribe are killed off and their women raped.

Inter-Ethnic diversity is a challenge great enough.

Anyone who welcomes anything else is culturally and demographically suicidal. Nothing less.

People = culture.

People = behaviour patterns on average.

There is no such thing as “magic soil.” Period.

If you mass import people from Uganda into Norway, then you’ll get Uganda in Norway.

If you mass import Arabs into France, then you’ll get an Arab Nation in the middle of Europe.

If you mass import Chinese people into Canada, you’ll get China Inc. in Canada.

If you mass import people from Latino countries into the U.S.A, then the culture, the practises, the voting patterns and whatnot will be coloured by this.

Apparently it is very difficult to follow this kind of logic………

Any person who does not understand demographics should be banned from public service.  It is that dangerous to play around with. An increase in violence and division is a given….

 

America’s Cultural Legacy, Division in the U.S.A., Morality vs. Strategy & Dumb White People.

Standard

Today I started off my day by reading celebrity statements from angry American stars, obviously yearning for some sort of revolution over in the U.S.A.

None of these characters ever formulate what they imagine will happen if total collapse ensues in said country. Which is something one certainly should think about if promoting and crying for war and destabilisation. Nor does it seem to me that they contemplate the possible source of America’s tremendous internal division. Nor do they suggest ways in which to fix it….

I’ve seen  for myself the fragmentation and tribalism across the pond and this is a most worrying issue. America depends on its citizens to leave their old alliances behind and literally pledge allegiance to their new country of residency if America is to work! America cannot afford to have separate population groups singing their own National Anthems, or population groups advocating solely and exclusively for their own group. America cannot afford ancestry worship in the long run, since they need Americans to see themselves as Americans 1st, which means that Americans have to mentally separate themselves from their country and culture of origin.

I think the main issue is that American values; (the constitution, the founding fathers, the American flag, the American Anthem, etc,) are seen as White-American values, rather than America being seen as an Anglo-Saxon construct where a hand has been stretched out to other tribes and where doors have been opened to facilitate racial integration and unity. 

This is a great shame because it means that unity can only happen if one “sells out” or that unity can only happen if “the old order” is destroyed, since America as we’ve come to know it signifies oppression in the eyes of enough people. This means that there are forces at work who want to topple the whole thing and who will never be interested in walking through the doors that have been left open, nor to shake that hand which has been left outstretched.

While America has its share of internal political and cultural problems, they cannot afford large hordes of people settling in who don’t even bother to learn English, unless Afro-Americans, Euro-Americans, (and once again) Native-Americans want to see themselves squeezed out and marginalised, much like whites originally marginalised Native tribes in order to win the territory that we today refer to as America………..

Racial anxiety will probably shoot through the roof when the baby-boomers all of a sudden vanish. That will probably be the moment when a great deal of White Americans (and Afro-Americans) start freaking out big time since their birth rates, (much like European birth rates), aren’t that great. This drop, that is already becoming noticeable in certain States, is being widely celebrated by liberal Whites who cannot wait to be in a minority position. Apparently they assume that they will be respected if the tables are completely turned. Nobody ever really mention how Afro-Americans are being squeezed out in some areas as well, nor does anyone bother to contemplate whether some of their gang-culture has to do with protection and retaliation towards other gangs and groups infringing upon “their territory” and “their interests”….*cough**cough* Latino gangs anyone?

If people are serious about Afro-American communities in the U.S.A. there are certain changes that has to happen. I remember how elderly Afro-Americans were very much upset about the cultural glorification of the gang-culture in Urban America. Not only were they embarrassed at how Afro-Americans were being portrayed, they were also upset about the potential influence on young people. In this they are very right. It is an outrage that “gangsta-culture” is promoted to such an extent rather than focusing on successful Afro-American individuals, who’ve made a life for themselves, without selling drugs on the streets to other Afro-Americans. It is particularly macabre, when taking into consideration that those who suffer the most at the hands of Afro-American gang crime are other Afro-Americans. Peddling false narratives, lying to young Afro-Americans in order to continue race-hostilities doesn’t help matters either. How can you ever get any bridges built if young Afro-Americans are led to believe that White Americans invented slavery out of nowhere and jumped out of the woodwork in Africa to enslave the Black Man, since they were envious of their Wakanda and technological superiority?

There have been African empires, Ethiopia is one example, but the narrative that is being sold, is not one where African tribes sold other African tribes to the white man, nor are the Arabs ever mentioned, nor is African Ethnic Diversity mentioned. No. Sub-Saharan Africans were actually the Egyptians, and the White Man just came to Africa one day, and destroyed Egypt, that apparently is located in Sub-Sahara Africa, so that the White Man could finally settle his envy, and teach the snotty Black Man some sort of lesson…..

You don’t believe me? Well then go ahead and expose yourself to this kind of nonsense yourself.

Of course, not all, that would be a false thing to suggest, a false one indeed, but you don’t need all Afro-Americans to believe in these things for them to have a negative, cultural effect!

Slavery existed long before the TransAtlantic Slave Trade. For all I know maybe I have a slave as my ancestor somewhere since the Vikings took prisoners and engaged in the trading of slaves. Something that I didn’t know of until I made my “Viking Video,” which can be seen on my YouTube.

In fact, European tribes have been enslaved in the past by other European tribes, due to war, the same can be said of Africa, the Middle East and I’m assuming Asia as well (why would they be the exception to the rule?).

Whenever there are victorious Nations, there will obviously be losers. Norway as a Nation has been a loser. In fact I don’t understand why Afro-Americans have to water the plant of falsehood in order to feel better about themselves. Focus on what you can do as an individual and look at other successful individuals, from your own tribe and from other tribes. There is no need to steal and culturally appropriate other Nation’s success stories.

There is a time for grief and there is a time to move on.

And the time to move on is now if Americans are truly concerned about their Union!!!!!!  

If there are forces out there who feel clever about the ghettos and no-go-zones in America, then they will find themselves disappointed, as the crime in these areas spread and expand. Eventually you will not be safe regardless of where you might find yourself, which is why these issues have to be solved. 

What is interesting to note, when observing America’s angry celebrities, is that none of these eloquent soldiers of chaos are outspoken supporters of American Heritage, History and/or culture. What were their thoughts during the statue debate? Have any of these characters used their platform and star-power to promote America’s cultural legacy? Even though it would naturally pale to Europe’s due to America’s very young age, they are still old enough to have buildings, statues and sites of historical importance and value. They also have their share of writers, modern composers, and have been especially influential in terms of “the Golden age of Hollywood” and/or musicals (just think Disney). American culture exists, even though Europeans might not agree because it isn’t old or classic enough….

If American culture exists, which it does, it ought to be protected, and who can possibly be better advocates for American cultural legacy than its performers and artists?

Apparently they have no interest in such things, probably because a great deal of American celebrities aren’t technically equipped to handle even the most basic musical repertoire….

There. I said it.

They evidently have no concern nor “skin in the game” when it comes to American culture, nor is their modern contribution that spectacular (in most cases). In other words, a great number of these American stars aren’t really that great. What makes them great is their fame and that’s about it.

When looking at the academia, the student movements, the celebrities and the media it wouldn’t surprise me at all if we are to witness a Winter Palace moment in the U.S.A. It is wrong to believe that a majority is needed for a revolution to take place. You need the right people and you need patronage, something that the American opposition has since establishment politicians and advocacy groups openly endorse and promote the hostilities.

The boosting of the economy and the creation of jobs might help, but America’s challenges are deep, and cultural as well. 

Morality vs. Strategy.

Just like the distinction between street level diversity vs. elitist diversity is never mentioned by those who govern at all, they also fail to address the complex balance of morality and strategic interest…

A good and easy example is this:

If you are a Christian you are supposed to help your brothers and sisters in Christ. These brothers and sisters could be anyone, living anywhere in the world. Christians are widely persecuted so it makes sense that they should receive support from fellow Christians.

But a dilemma naturally presents itself…

1- “I’ll get involved with charity in Africa. I will do my best to use my energy on collecting goods for African Christians. I will not raise money for the unfortunate in my own territory, I will help African tribes instead, sending them medication and money if I’m wealthy enough. They believe in God, I strongly dislike our degenerate society, so I will side with those who have healthy and strong values. Take that silly Europe!

2- Over population becomes an issue in Africa. People start moving North in order to go where all the goods came from. They are now great in numbers due to Northern charity efforts and start pushing into your territory, compromising the safety and integrity of your own habitat. Crime levels explode, integration fails, and suddenly you find yourself a stranger in your own territory.

Which one would you choose: your fellow country men and neighbours or people of the faith regardless of where they might come from?

Or simply put: what comes first to you and what is most important? Race or faith/ideology?

You do not need a more complex example than this. Sadly we have leaders in our part of the world who never really take the time to explain the battle between what is good in  the moment and what might be better in the long run.

It might be an idea to address this and explain this to the population since it could reduce some of the hatred directed towards politicians and decision makers.

Retarded White People.

So today I saw this in my Twitter feed:

BBC being silly

Needless to say I commented on this.

If you want to eradicate Whites then this type of argument is sensible. I just happen to be white and live in Europe, which is the only territory that rightfully belongs to the so-called “Evil White Man” because this is where the “Evil White Man” comes from … the idea that we should have no borders while having no children is nothing short of insane.

I wasn’t really aware of how bad our situation is until last year when I was ill and had plenty of time on my hands to read and think.

Nobody ever sat me down and explained to me the National importance of marriage and children, quite on the contrary I was told to do my own thing and have a career.

When I was a tween the Defence Department in the country where I lived decided to use little girls magazines to recruit young girls to go out and fight, rather than to promote children and family life.

Ever since I started receiving mainstream exposure for my work as an artist I’ve been hailed as a fabulous female role model, since I’m a shred/virtuoso guitarist and since I initially started out in the male-dominated realm of heavy metal, contributing to the genre as a creative artist and kicking ass technically.

If young women in the U.S.A., Russia and/or Europe follow my example there will be no future for any of those territories since I’ve never been married and have no kids.

I’m still a fantastic role-model though apparently, or maybe not anymore, since I’ve realised how dangerous our culture actually is.

I guess that makes me a douchebag instead. Yeah probably.

 

A Cool Video From The G7.

Standard

This is a very interesting  watch, especially when considering how the U.S.A is constantly being portrayed as the villainous hegemon. I started to doubt this narrative when I saw how much the U.S.A was struggling internally for myself, which is of course something that a lot of European critics will never see. It is interesting to note how opinionated people can be about a country they’ve never even been to … likewise it is interesting to listen to real witness accounts from people who’ve actually worked in Africa, Asia and the Middle East rather than experts who glorify cultures and situations they know nothing about….

I’m extremely happy to see that there is a real Renaissance effort in place because the U.S.A. sorely needs it. Hopefully it will inspire Europe to follow suit. One can hope. I saw a tweet yesterday from a fellow show-biz character who said that Norway needs a trip to the garage, my reply was that the whole west needs it asap. I don’t see isolated issues, I see a continental issue over here and an overall degenerate culture-war that is equally damaging for the U.S.A. as it is for countries and nations over here.

Last year when I decided to actually cast my vote for the first time, out of desperation quite frankly due to how things are changing in Europe, I decided to read a little and figure out what I was casting my vote for. It opened my eyes a bit to the complexity and magnitude of what needs to be addressed when engaged in National management… Migration is quite frankly just one piece in a giant tapestry of issues, but it is the issue that is the most visible to the general population due to exposure and due to brands, magazines and entertainment companies moving together in a synchronised fashion to popularise new values and a new Europe. If you hate and loathe the change, you’ll be given new reasons to be upset every single day. It makes me happy to see that the U.S.A. at least are getting back on their feet, now I’m wondering when Hollywood will follow suit and create patriotic content that can lift the American spirit rather than working against the re-construction. (A cool article to check out).

“Trump – The Art Of The Deal” by Donald J.Trump & Tony Schwartz.

Standard

If there is one thing I never really read it is business books, in fact this is the 1st one I’ve ever completed.

The work was recommended to me by my mother who studied economics and is a life-long Trump fan. She had previously read “The Art Of The Deal” many years ago ( it was published in 1987) and bought it again after Trump’s election victory over in the U.S.A.

The work is very easy to read, but not in a dumb or condescending fashion. If you have a curious mind it will keep you occupied into the early morning hours. I finished the book in less than a day. Those who are searching for bigotry will find themselves disappointed as Trump mentions how he likes to hire women since they are so efficient and competent (to paraphrase), among other myth-busting statements. It is also highlighted that part of Trump Tower’s success is that they did not engage in “discrimination” towards potential buyers. Getting hold of an apartment in New York is described as being rather difficult, since you as a person have to be assessed before you’re allowed into “the club.”

The work is off to a strong, but overwhelmingly energetic start, following a typical work-week in Trump’s busy business life. His network is nothing short of impressive and is the first thing that stands out. He lifts up the phone and seem capable of reaching any decision maker in any multi million/billion dollar industry whenever he likes.

What he is depicted as doing comes across as very complex for sure, as he seems to be everywhere and involved with everything at any give time. It certainly sounds like a more cerebral activity than just repeating and focusing on one activity over and over, which is what artists and athletes do.

He displays great “cunning” in his autobiography which would have scored him lots of points with the Vikings or the Greeks. It is nothing short of staggering what one person can accomplish during a lifetime. Donald Trump’s legacy will ring out through the ages I’m sure, after first establishing a business empire, leaving many buildings after himself (in his name), even becoming president of the U.S.A. Movies will be made in due time, probably statues as well.

When talking about his childhood he describes a privileged background in comparison to most. He was groomed for the property business working along his father. It is also mentioned that his grandfather came from Sweden, which instantly made me wonder what Trump’s impression would be if he went over there and saw “Swedish conditions” for himself. A funny story is shared of how Trump built skyscrapers with Lego as a child.

It is of great interest that Trump the adult is depicted as brushing shoulders with the same sort of people who have now all of a sudden thrown him under the bus. My guess is that everybody wanted his money back then and to pose next to a successful, glamorous developer. Trump used to be pop (and still is with his supporters and fans), but was all of a sudden somewhat disowned by an entertainment industry and a media establishment now depicting him as retarded and evil. I’ve previously credited this to him simply being politically conservative.

Questioning the mental capacity of someone who’ve built a business empire, branding him as a “buffoon-reality-show-President,” is nothing short of hilarious. You cannot be an idiot and become successful in the line of work where Trump has made his name. His critics must see him as a threat (he criticises corruption  within the political establishment in New York in his book), he gets back at his haters (before Twitter-Trump, there was letter-writing-Trump), he was able to get back on his feet after bankruptcy, he has always (by judging from this book) called a spade a spade, he comes across as a real-life monopoly player with an unblemished background after numerous bureaucratic assessments and in addition he is the definition of a capitalist, and I guess that is the issue more than anything else. 

More worryingly for his enemies: he is described as engaging in economic “sieges,” certainly adding a militaristic flair to the Trump phenomenon. The business environment is obviously described as competitive and filled with jealousy, so you have that element as well. Maybe there are other businessmen out there who wish they had run for office themselves … there are probably many money-makers out there who wish they were Trump……

In the book he constantly talks about “the market;” it is because of his ability to read “the market” and see “the market,” that he wins. This of course clashes with people from proper old-money, or those who are more elitist in their taste and feel that the “masses” are dull, stupid, uninteresting, you name it. Donald J.Trump is all about understanding what and how to sell. That seldom goes along with arrogance or an outright refusal to “sell out.” He shares his admiration for other people who also cater to whatever “market” that is relevant for the line of work that they are in.

He describes how an artist friend of his makes lots of money by simply pouring paint over a canvass, making a mess, selling it as modern art;  which is a con-trick I’ve come across myself when I was introduced to an Asian female painter with three studios around the world who made her money by pouring paint unto canvasses, and folding and unfolding said canvasses. This was how she made her money, with eager buyers psychoanalyzing the emotional meaning behind her work…..

This “market” obsession is what a lot of “true” (or much better written: TRVE) artists and musicians turn away from in total disgust. If you choose to do proper classical crossover for example, there will be an understanding that this doesn’t hang as high as catering to the niche, elitist, market of “proper classical music.” Crossover acts sell more records, but that doesn’t really matter….

I also posses a certain snobbish flair when it comes to food and art (which I attribute to being European), but this is something that is only good in certain doses. I have myself turned down certain TV offers in the past, because I felt that appearing on such shows would hurt my brand; like it would taint me somehow. Such behaviour cannot be a constant factor though as you’ll never crossover into the mainstream in any sort of way, which I’ve thankfully done by being visible on some of the most mainstream TV-shows in my country of origin, yet even when I said yes to these things, I knew that there was a certain sense of “selling-out,” yet the opportunities seemed too fun and too good to turn down, and I was very right about that. I love doing TV.

I do know that great art a lot of times isn’t supported by “the market” but need “patronage” in order to survive. History proves this to be the case. People who really have “the attitude” though would scoff at “circus-entertainment,” or anything catering to the so-called “masses” such as a U.S. President eating burgers from McDonald’s. Capitalists such as Trump win financially because they seemingly don’t care about the snobs; offering apartments for sale in New York without discrimination, is a very good example, making a reality-show is another not to forget; bothering about the ordeals of so-called “commoners” like Annabel Hill; which paints the picture of a capitalist with a heart. And what can possibly beat strong leadership combined with compassion?

Even the story of Trump trying to kick out tenants who were paying ridiculously low rent as a result of “rent-control,” is an interesting case study, as these individuals who got a bargain and took advantage of the “system,” felt that they were being harassed when Trump’s people tried to run the building in accordance with the low rent they collected. This was seen as an act of harassment by the tenants. To quote Trump:

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned about the rich, it’s that they have a very low threshold for even the mildest discomfort.”

“It happens to be very easy to vacate a building if, like so many landlords, you don’t mind being a bad guy. When these landlords buy buildings they intend to vacate, they use corporate names that are difficult to trace. Then they hire thugs to come in with sledgehammers and smash up the boiler, rip out the stairways, and create floods by cutting holes in pipes. They import truckloads of junkies, prostitutes, and thieves and move them into vacant apartments to terrorize holdout tenants. That’s what I call harassment.” (This clearly illustrates “people used as weapons.” Which      can be compared to how migration is handled by some).

The scenario described illustrates once again how a privileged few, convinced other people not as fortunate as themselves, to gang up together to fight a common enemy whose defeat ultimately would have profited the tenants who had the biggest flats the most. Trump’s dislike of wealthy people taking advantage of rent-controlled apartments can also be a reason as to why some people strongly dislike the current President, since people aren’t too keen on separating with their perks. Many celebrities taking advantage of “rent-control” are mentioned within the book….

Trump ends up fantasizing about offering the homeless his vacant apartments in said condominium, so that snobbish New Yorkers can share their living space with the less-fortunate. He backs down from this idea after his lawyers warn that it will become almost impossible to remove rough sleepers to prepare the building for demolition if he first initiates such an endeavour.

I’m suspecting that I’ve hit the nail somewhat on its head when it comes to why show-biz people have turned their backs so violently on the current U.S.President. Messy, absent-minded, artsy types seem to have an innate disgust towards suit-wearing money-makers like the ones Trump describes in his book. I wonder if the mentality goes both ways as the world described by someone like Donald J. Trump starkly contrasts any music industry related book. There is a personality contrast (on average) I’m suspecting, which is probably why artists have a tendency of being outspokenly anti-corporate, even if benefitting from major corporations and patronage from such people. This “night and day” contrast with deadline averse, unorganised artists on one side, and a no bullshit, no time to waste, mentality on the opposite spectrum, might illustrate my point. Artists would ironically enough be able to relate to business guys struggling to get financing for unique and new ideas, but I guess there is no interest in finding common ground if you as an artist hate and fight “the system,” while business people (might) think of artists as annoying, ungrateful, weirdos, with a strange dress-sense.

There are a great number of artists out there who are openly communist and would cringe at the idea of having their music placed in an ad, for example. Rather than seeing this as a golden opportunity, there would be many who would be opposed to such a thing. Licensing music for use in commercials should be the dream of any musician; I personally do not understand the official anti-business stance of a lot of show-biz characters since you are starting a business anyway the moment that you are selling a service or a product. You can might as well think big and aim high.

The greatest comedy in entertainment is when radical artists are in the receiving end of proper corporate backing and feel clever since they feel like they are fighting the machine from within, using capitalist tools. The capitalists also feel clever since they are making a profit off approved opposition and dissent, getting rich off anti-establishment punks, who actually enrich the very institutions that they criticise… This sort of oddity can to a certain degree be witnessed by anti-gun celebrities who’ve made their names by being gun-wielding action heroes, or #MeToo male feminists in show-biz unmasked as sexual predators. A box that Donald J. Trump’s critics have tried their best to place him in. The second that “locker-room” talk from the current President could be used as a tool to remove him from the 2016 election, his critics edited out what they needed and jumped at the opportunity to use it, only to see him win in the end anyway. It is particularly telling that the ace up their sleeve now come in the form of a certain lame storm that passed many, many, years ago.

There is a Russia-link funny enough on pages. 26-27 and on page 364 … This book however was published in 1987 and I’m guessing that Trump travelling to the Soviet Union to scout for potential prospects with his first wife doesn’t count… I’m willing to bet that Trump’s critics haven’t bothered to read his book. They should. Maybe they’ll turn around.

When you read “The Art Of The Deal” you get an insight into those who run the world; in other words: those who know how to handle money, make good business deals and don’t want to waste time on bullshit. Trump even meets with a Cardinal.

Politics and the world of real estate are closely linked and certainly puts into question the myth of property-rights in the Western world. I’ve previously mentioned in my entry: “An Insight Into The State of A European Nation – Election in Norway/Valg i Norge 2017.,” how easily rights gets compromised when red-tape and bureaucracy infringes on what a person can do with his/her property. It contradicts freedom and liberty to have politicians interfere with how or what  you build on a piece of land that you’ve purchased, unless there is a concern for buildings of a historical value. If we are to have rights in the Western world, it would be good if these could be respected, if not they are merely a mirage….

Politicians are depicted as fishy weather-wanes in Trump’s book, obsessed with their own vanity, living in fear over any bad publicity since this can cost them votes. They are depicted as largely incompetent and untrustworthy.

I particularly enjoyed reading about “value engineering” and “quality control.” I’ve had a ridiculous amount of different addresses in my short life and know how sneaky landlords can be. They paint over blemishes and pretend like nothing, which is why it is crucial to hire a nosy “inspector” if you ever intended to rent, and especially buy something. More often than not you’ll find “fire traps” and/or “hazardous materials.” I would recommend people to smell the walls of their flats and/or houses, in order to detect any mould that has been painted over or any potential rot. It might make you look crazy, but at least you’ll know if someone is trying to be clever…

My favourite chapter was the one about the rebuilding of the Wollman Ice Rink in Central Park.

After reading Donald J. Trump’s book I’m sure that he is thrilled over bureaucrats and feet-dragging within the political establishment that he now finds himself in…

A future President and world-leader can be seen when Trump says: “…I felt there was a bigger issue at stake. I’ve come to believe Ed Koch is so incompetent and destructive to New York that someone has to stand up and say so, publicly.

Nowhere can this President-in-the-making be sensed clearer than in the “What’s Next” section of the work: “ But what I admire most are people who put themselves directly on the line. I’ve never been terribly interested in why people give, because their motivation is rarely what it seems to be, and it’s almost never pure altruism. To me, what matters is the doing, and giving time is far more valuable than giving money. In my life, there are two things I’ve found I’m very good at: overcoming obstacles and motivating good people to do their best work. One of the challenges ahead is how to use those skills as successfully in the service of others as I’ve done, up to now, on my own behalf.

Conclusion: Donald J. Trump comes across as a very likeable guy, sharp, not someone you could easily fool, interested in the whereabouts of real people and what actually happens in the real-world. He comes across as someone critical of a political establishment only interested in enriching itself, and at odds with New York snobbery. He comes across as a successful “man-of-the-people,” in love with everything HUGE and beautiful. Those looking for anything Hitleresque will find themselves disappointed. Read this book whether you like President Trump or not.

4 Things I really like and agree with from “The Art Of The Deal”

  1. It doesn’t matter if you own something a 100% if what you own is worthless.
  2. It doesn’t matter if you have a stellar product if no one ever hears about it.
  3. There are lots of people out there with unfulfilled potential because they were never put in a setting where they could properly bloom.
  4.  Leading a meritocratic operation will get out the best in people.

Selected Quotes from “The Art Of The Deal”

” … politicians don’t care too much about what things cost. It’s not their money.”

“You can’t  be imaginative or entrepreneurial if you’ve got too much structure.”

“… if you’re right, you’ve got to take a stand, or people will walk all over you.”

“The way I see it, critics get to say what they want to about my work, so why shouldn’t I be able to say what I want about theirs?” – after writing a letter to a critic who ” …was knocking a design he hadn’t even looked at yet.”

“That experience taught me a few things. One is to listen to your gut, no matter how good something sounds on paper. The second is that you’re generally better off sticking with what you know. And the third is that sometimes your best investments are the ones you don’t make.”

“The worst things you can possibly do in a deal is seem desperate to make it.”

“It pays to trust your instincts.”

“The state official who cross-examined Hefner said afterward that several commissioners hadn’t liked Hefner’s demeanour and style on the witness stand.” On why some get licenses from the bureaucracy and why some don’t.

“There is nothing to compare with family if they happen to be competent, because you can trust family in a way you can never trust anyone else.”

“To this day not many people or companies are willing to go through the nightmare of licensing in New Jersey, which gives Nevada a big advantage in attracting new investors.”

Trump on the business of Sport: ” Porter bluntly outlined a multipart plan for declaring total war on our league, by employing numerous anti-competitive strategies. His two-and-a-half-hour presentation was divided into sections such as “Offensive Strategies,” “Guerrilla Warfare,” and “The Art of War – China 500 B.C.”

Trump on politicians: ” It’s fortunate for those city officials that they chose to go into city government rather than business. The deal they were suggesting was far worse for the city than the one I’d originally offered. I wasn’t about to fight them at my  own expense.”

“…raise the possibility of bad press, even in an obscure publication, and most politicians will jump.”

“It irritates me that critics, who’ve neither designed nor built anything themselves, are given carte blanche to express their views in the pages of major publications, whereas the targets of their criticism are almost never offered space to respond.”

Trump on celebrity buyers of his apartments: ” Obviously, we were a natural choice for people connected with show business, in the sense that we’d created something very glamorous.”

“The truth is that we never hired anyone to do public relations, and every star who bought an apartment – Johnny Carson, Steven Spielberg, Paul Anka, Liberace – and many others – came to us.”
