Donald Trump Wears A Hard Hat: Get Ready to Move…Again, by Dr. Steven Nur Ahmed


A report by Reuters on December 19, 2016, written by M.B. Bell and Joshua Schneyer, identified thousands of areas across the United States where lead poisoning is worse than it is in Flint, Michigan: “A Reuter examination of lead testing results across the country found almost 3000 areas with poisoning rates far higher than in the tainted Michigan City.” Reuters stopped their count at 3000. There are thousands more.

For over 100 years, scientists and scholars have known of the deleterious effects of lead poisoning on the human body particularly the brain in young and old persons. But we will not rehash the scientific findings of the specific effects of lead poisoning in this article. Nor shall we examine the criminal proceedings now in process against those responsible for the lead poisoning disaster in Flint, Michigan. Those subjects are not the main point I want to make here because there is another crisis looming on the horizon and it will be a collateral effect of lead testing results across the nation.

A demographic crisis is forming. It will displace millions of Descendants of Slaves out of inner cities across the United States. The crisis will put gentrification into hyper-drive and there will be no stopping it from happening because there are no credible reasons to make the argument that it would not be legal nor is there a persuasive moral argument that it should not happen.

Bell and Schneyer identified Flint, Michigan; we can add to that Detroit; Chicago, Illinois. They also identified the city of Baltimore, Maryland; Missouri;  Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Cleveland, Ohio; Philadelphia and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; South Bend, Indiana. But there are thousands more cities across the nation wherein children and adults suffer brain damage due to lead poisoning.  

Let me put it another way, it will be the great migration in reverse. But this time with no hope of a higher quality of life in an industrial urban setting with plenty of blue collar and domestic jobs.[1] What is going to happen may or may not be more pressing because of Donald Trump’s election to be our 45th President of the United States.

It is not a Republican nor Democratic nor Libertarian scheme, for the political bosses are but emissaries; rather, it is a corporate scheme to turn leaded inner city infrastructures into healthy and vibrant life centers with plush recreational parks for the power elite.

Donald Trump will become the President of the United States on January 20, 2017. He is uniquely qualified to carry the corporate ball down field and to make their plan a reality because his expertise is in the field of building construction and eminent domain. When they see an opening in the line, corporate America crashes everything and moves the ball through it.They will be awarded billions of tax payer dollars by getting government contracts. They will for the most part be white owned companies. 

That begs the question: what will be the rational used to trigger the crisis? My answer is that it will be based upon ‘condemnation policy’ for public health and safety purposes. It will be legal. Lead infested infrastructures are a cause for public health and safety action by local, state, and federal governments. The U.S. Constitution gives governments the legal authority to have such policy.

The Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution provides for the legal acquisition of private property under what is called ‘eminent domain’. Therein it states: “…nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

What that means is that governments have a legal duty. Governments must provide due process of law to the property owner. Governments must serve a legal or natural person who owns the property a notice of the date and place a court proceeding is to take place. They must cite the law upon which such a notice is based. Governments must make it clear that their aim is to take away the property of the holder of title. Governments must provide for such a private owner a day in court to argue why the government has no legal or rational basis to take their property.

Secondly, if a government takes a private property then it must pay the owner fair market value for that property. Then and only then can a government legally take private property for public use or purposes.

Supreme Court decisions have expanded the limits of governments’ right to seize private property from owners. Those decisions are of vital importance to us because they will enable us to see the corporate strategy or play book for taking lead infested environments and booting out descendants of slaves.

The problem that Descendants of Slaves have in relation to eminent domain is more complex now than ever before. Keep this in mind, most Descendants of Slaves who live within inner cities where lead is a public health and safety issue…do not own the property wherein they live. That means that: 1. No notice will be given to them of court proceedings to take property; they will usually get 30 to 60 days to move, and 2. though the owners will get fair market value compensation from government, the fact is that most Descendants of Slaves will get no compensation whatsoever. With little or no money and priced out of high rent neighborhoods, most Descendants of Slaves will have nowhere to go.[2] New Supreme Court decisions now make all of this not just possible but highly likely.

In Kelo v. City of New London,[3] 545 U.S. 469 (2005), the Supreme Court of the United States held that  the use of eminent domain to transfer land from one private owner to another private owner to further economic development is constitutional: “In a 5–4 decision, the Court held that the general benefits a community enjoyed from economic growth qualified private redevelopment plans as a permissible “public use” under the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment.” That decision made ‘public use takings’ synonymous with ‘public purpose’. The court privatized the 5th amendment takings clause.  If a company can prove that it plans the broad and vague phrase ‘public purpose’ to a court, then it can legally take private property and remarket it for profit.

The test employed under Kelo v. City of New London is a simple one: “…if an economic project creates new jobs, increases taxes and other revenues, and revitalizes a depressed (even if not blighted) urban area, it qualifies as a public use.” Justice Stevens wrote in that decision: “the Court long ago rejected any literal requirement that condemned property be put into use for the general public”[4] The foundation has been laid. Cities across the nation will take advantage of this diction to attract a wealthier population while pushing out poor whites and descendants of slaves.

There will be many other collateral effects. Some will be beneficial. For example, there will be a steep decline in black on black homicide and violent crime. There will be a steep decline in the number of Descendants of Slaves incarcerated. There will be a steep decline in the number children who are exposed to lead and other heavy metal toxins. Just to name a few.

Some of the harmful collateral effects will be increased poverty among descendants of slaves; few jobs which provide a livable wage; greater spatial difficulty accessing vocational and college institutions; the end of national grass root social justice organizations which depend upon a concentrated population of Descendants of Slaves for support; social alienation among poor and wealthy Descendants of Slaves; drug abuse will increase; fertility rates will decrease even lower than now; the marriage rate will continue to decline and will become the lowest in the nation; the traditional ‘black church’ will wither away.

The black church will be replaced by ecumenical churches which abandon Descendants of Slaves primarily because they are generally poor. Instead they will reach out to non-descendants of slaves as the religious priests struggle to keep their revenue streams fluid; and lastly, there will be an increase in more psychopathic individuals making claims to you on social media that you should give them your money.[5]

The fabric and texture of the lives of Descendants of Slaves in America is about to undergo such a radical change that many will suffer what the sociologist Emile Durkheim described as ‘anomie’. Consequently, suicide rates among Descendants of Slaves will rise significantly over the next 10 years.

Adding to the overall post-modern disenfranchisement of Descendants of Slaves is new technology. New technologies such as Nano technology, Bio- technology, Robotic technology or artificial intelligence, and an increasing demand for brain driven workers has made most Descendants of Slaves literally obsolete.    

Great play writers know that there are only three ideal types in drama. One is comedy. One is tragedy. And one is a combination of both called…tragicomedy. Descendants of Slaves have no doubt played all three of these types for three centuries and continue to do so. 

But all plays must inevitably come to an end. So, now, the curtain draws slowly on this one, too. I know you want to hear something good, something positive for the new year. You want to see fireworks; sparklers and such. But I’m not going to lie to you. I don’t want your money because I know what true wealth is; and I don’t need you to be up in my face crowd pleasing me.  So, I don’t need to sugar coat what I say to you.  It will be an unhappy new year for Descendants of Slaves.

The mass of evidence is increasingly compelling informed Americans to conclude that President Barak Obama is but another presidential link in a long chain of Presidents who is under the absolute control of the military-industrial-complex pushing the United States into a state of fascism. This claim is not made lightly or as opinion. Incontrovertible facts support it.

First, President Obama campaigned in 2008 that the war in Iraq was illegal. He boasted that as a senator he did not vote to attack Iraq under the Bush administration because the claims made by Colin Powell in 2003 at the United Nations that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction were false and that the Bush administration knew it. He used that argument against Hillary Clinton who voted for the war.  But once President Obama became President he didn’t stop the war, he altered the nature of the war by using drones indiscriminately in Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen to kill suspected terrorists and all those Muslims in close proximity including children.  He ordered the use of drones by the CIA in those countries with full knowledge that he was violating their national sovereignty under international law.

Second, President Obama ordered the killing of U.S. citizens in Yemen one of whom was a 16 year old child who was having breakfast with other children.  He gave that order knowing that it violated the Federal Juvenile Act and the 5th amendment right of those U.S. citizens to their right to due process under law.  His press secretary said that the child should have picked a better father.  Obama rationalized his order to assassinate on the basis of speech which under the constitution is a protected right.  He is also setting up the African Command to commit the same kinds of war crimes while at the same time approving monetary aid to countries with child soldiers in Africa. Is this a set up to kill more children?

Thirdly, you ordered yet another violation of international law by using the North Atlantic Treaty Organization out of its jurisdiction and contrary to the United Nations into an unprovoked attack on Libya. You set the stage and furthered the murder of the national leader of Libya, Qaddafi, just as Eisenhower ordered a CIA hit on President Patrice Lumumba of the Congo in 1961 and Bush on Saddam Hussain. Since then Congo has been pillaged by multinational corporations for the mineral coltan and other minerals while its people remain dirt poor. Libya is now a ghetto nation like Iraq and Syria. President Obama knew better because the British did it to his father’s family in Kenya. They kept the Kenyans in a perpetual state of ghetto.  But ghetto doesn’t resonate with President Obama here or abroad.

Fourthly, he has not fought congress to reinstitute Glass-Steagall which your mentor William Jefferson Clinton helped repeal for his and your corporate bosses; he has instead catered wholly to corporate powers which donated heavily to both of his presidential campaigns. For example, he signed into law the Monsanto Protection Act (see section 735) which gives ‘Monsanto Corporation’ immunity from federal courts pending the review of any GM crop that is thought to be dangerous. Even more, in his 2013 state of the union he endorsed a free trade agreement with the European Union which would grant corporations the power to challenge many regulations both at home and abroad.  These facts are indisputable.

When President Obama took office in 2008, he appointed Larry Summers and Timothy Geithner both of whom were and are Wall Street agents and crime partners with the major banks which stole trillions of dollars from the American people and which caused the 2008 economic meltdown. President Obama knew that.  He was told to keep them.

Yet, President Obama has not addressed the fact that major banks such as JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo aid in the ghetto payday loans to exploit the poor with up to 500% interest rates on the internet. Its alright to leach on the poor; that’s the nature of his administration.

Instead, President Obama will meet in Lima, Peru to endorse the ‘Trans-Pacific-Partnership Treaty’ which will give corporations everywhere the right to have a trade tribunal hear claims brought against them; it would override U.S. Federal law.  It is an act against poor nations and poor people in those nations. President Obama knows that.  He condones it for his corporate masters.

Fifthly, President Obama attended a Bilderberg meeting in 2008 before he was elected. He has not revealed to his constituents why he attended and what the nature of his meeting with its members, who happen to be the most powerful men in the world, was.  However, we do know that Chris Hughes, Editor of the New Republic and co-founder of Face-Book attended a Bilderberg meeting in 2011. We also know that he was the ‘coordinator for online organizing’ for the Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and donated millions of dollars to Obama’s 2012 presidential campaign. See: ‘The Kid who made Obama President…, Fast Company Magazine’. We also know that Chris Hughes is gay and made over 500 million dollars in 2012. That’s why you argued that the Supreme Court should strike down the ‘Defense of Marriage, Act’ 2-23-2013. No President Obama, gays did not put you in office; African Americans put you in office.  For them you have done nothing.  And don’t throw out to us the ‘Obama-Care’ bone because the insurance industry will profit from ‘Obama-Care.’ That’s not enough pay back for a 93% African American voter support.

Sixthly, President Obama dog’s the poor. He has not advocated for public education and so he silently supports the privatization of K-12 education.  But there’s more, in 2008 he promised that he’d never cut Social Security to the elderly but now he says that it is on the table as a possibility under a ‘chained CPI’ proposal.  Further, he has done nothing to address the crisis of prison incarceration in the United States and again by silence condones the privatization of the criminal justice system for profit.

Seventh, President Obama is now engaged in a frontal attack on the rights of all American citizens.  He signed into law on 2012 the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) which allows the government to indefinitely detain U.S. citizens with no right of habeas corpus (Section 1021).

Now a courageous American has stepped forward. Edward Snowden who is an ex- CIA agent has leaked a totally fascist plan by President Obama, et al. The Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act has been found to allow the FBI and National Security Agency secret ‘back door’ access which they have been using for over a year at a 300,000,000 intercepted calls per day clip of all phone calls, emails, pictures, and videos  through and by cooperation with INTERNET PROVIDERS such as Verizon, AT&T, Yahoo, Google, Microsoft-Skype, AOL, et al of all U.S. citizens with complete disregard for the 4th amendment prohibition against warrantless searches of persons, houses, papers, and effects without a warrant which if given would require an affidavit which particularly describes the person or things to be searched or seized based upon probable cause and signed by a judge .

The ‘New York Times’ has stated that President Obama has lost all credibility. Just weeks before this new revelation it had been found the Eric Holder who is the U.S. Attorney General had signed on a memorandum authorizing the FBI to spy on ‘Associated Press’ news reporter’s phone calls. And on top of that, the Internal Revenue Service is charged with having targeted persons because of their political association or those political parties which applied for tax exempt status.


The facts support the following conclusion. President Obama is a war criminal and a corporate puppet. His smile will not fool historians in the future nor will it fool intelligent people today. He has joined the ranks of J. Edgar Hoover the master mind of ‘co-intell-pro’, smut spying, and murder . We, U.S. citizens, are now living in a fascist state. There has been a corporate hostile takeover of our government. It is now a corporate and military-police power structured to exercise totalitarian rule over us. You may consume alcohol, smoke weed, listen to hip-hop; you may use drugs until your brain is mush, watch television until your eyes are red, but you may not think.  Welcome to the ‘Brave New World’ of America.
