ENVISIONING PRESIDENT HILLARY CLINTON: “THE BARACK-HILLARY LEGACY”



Photo source:daily dot
I am deeply honored to be telling the vision that has since been on my mind for a while in the most possible way I have ever imagined. I have wracked my mind how best I would tell it; it was not until I was admiringly looking at Mrs. Clinton’s photos  recently and I got the picture (above) that would best tell what I envision in the Presidency of the first female President of the United States, Hillary Rodham Clinton. As I have noted time and again, if there is anything that I admire about President Obama and Mrs. Clinton among the very many things, it’s their authentic selves—especially in the realm of political maturity, for purposes of this article.

As I noted earlier in the road to President Hillary Clinton, her resilience is certainly a thing anyone in the world would admire, she is indeed is a fighter—“fighting for us, we are stronger together”, do those words ring a bell? By now they should be the words every sane American has subscribed to their hearts than the fictional ‘make America Great Again’, when did she become weak, after President Obama’s achievements? That, I do not believe even for a second, because; the writing is on the wall. The Obama administration may not have solved everything but they will go down in history as one of the most successful administrations of the United States.

On the night of the 2008 Democratic convention, when Mrs. Clinton held an olive branch to Obama saying, ‘I will do everything I can to get Barack elected’, that she did; she went on to say these beautiful words from the phenomenal Harriet Tubman that I find very relevant (especially with the never ending republican yammering and bickering): “If you hear the dogs, keep going. If you see the torches in the wood, keep going. If there is shouting after you, keep going. Do not ever stop, keep going. If you want a taste of freedom, keep going”. As it is clearly spelt to all of us, that’s what has brought her thus far, to the milestone for women; as she pronounced eloquently  on the night she became the presumptive nominee for the democratic party.

By far Hillary Clinton is the first woman to ever make it as nominee of a party for the biggest office, president of the United States. As was Sen. Barack Obama in 2008; as first Afro-American to make it through, I find the beauty of this the best story that’s ever going to be written in American politics. When it is written, I will pride myself in having been part of the Hillary train, I have waited for a long time; I am glad my dream is coming to reality: President Hillary Clinton. She does not need to convince me and no one can un-convince me that she  isn’t phenomenal;atleast I have followed her through a big time of my life—I have seen her strength of character through and through, I am certain America and the world in general needs the leader in her especially now.


Mrs. Clinton doesn’t mince words when it comes to roasting Trump the best way anyone could. In this video, shesays: “…..the self-proclaimed king of death has no idea real ideas for making collegemore affordable or addressing the student debt crisis. He has no credible plan for rebuilding our infrastructure apart from his wall. He has no real strategy for creating jobs apart from a string of empty promises and maybe we shouldn’t expect that from someone whose famous words are, you are fired. But here is what is what I want you to know, I do have a job program and as president, I am gona make sure that you hear; you are hired! And here is the bottom line, economists right; left and center all agree, Donald Trump will drive America back into recession……”.And certainly I agree with Mrs.Clnton and what President Obama said the other day.

One of my best writers, Nicolle Wallace, recently wrote an article you can read ten times consecutively titled, ‘the GOP waits, and waits; for Donald Trumpto grow up’ in which she succinctly puts it: “Mr. Trump is waiting for party leaders to stop reprimanding him for his lean (that is skeletal) campaign operation, his politically incorrect utterances and his inconsistent operations”. Again, those are just raw facts. If in a nightmare, America votes ‘the Donald’ to presidency, which I strongly believe will not happen, because I have faith in American people; you get what you deserve.Beacuse,whatever hole he crawled from, he has been preying on the republicans with his fear mongering antics and bigotry—something republicans subscribe too anyways.More still, if by the same nightmare we don’t launch Mrs. Clinton into the white house, it will be definitive confirmation that gender chauvinism still has its place in the hearts of American men. If you are reading this, when your car is headed down a cliff; the last thing you need is a quiet flag. Let’s stand tall against the world menace, Donald Trump, and stand with her all the way. God bless America and the whole world.

Grab him by the ballot

Morality can be so interesting to watch when a very immoral person like Donald Trump is playing the morality police. It has been a turn of events since the last debate —when the Donald learned he was losing terribly, he resorted to the final deep end drive into the conquest for the bottom of the barrel—his campaign has been always about impure rhetoric but this time, he didn’t pretend for a second, what I don’t understand though is why a man would pride in being remembered for the creepiest things ever said for a man as old as 70 years. I have seen the very big hypocrites of the republican party ditch their party leader on the side of the road albeit I can’t fathom why and how they stood on his side this long—if there’s one sure thing, putting up with the stupidity that tags along being in the Donald’s cult is a twenty four-hour exercise equivalence, it’s a very tough place to be: full of vile utterances and always denying facts even understood by a five year old.

We were eight Years in Power, a legacy adored.

When I wrote the memoir for my role model , President Obama and his beautiful family, I thought I was saying bye with tears of joy and I wouldn’t be tempted to write anything again before I met him in person—well, I was so wrong, I have since written many pieces where his legendary name surfaces as a re-enforcer to my points [remember, as Mrs. Clinton said recently while delivering her acceptance speech , he is the ‘explainer in chief’]. The beautiful first family:Photo taken off the web What I have learned from this great man and his phenomenal wife, FLOTUS Michelle Obama, is absolutely beyond description: all I can say is that it makes me wake up each day with morale to work hard and one day inspire people like these two have inspired my person over the years. Yes, I have learned over the years that good deeds are contagious—we either do and write about them or live by them our entire lives.That maybe the greatest riddle of our time is the unforgettable question from the iconic

Hillary Clinton is Presidential

I want to begin with what Donald said about Hillary as he openly endorsed her for the job: “she is a fighter and she never quits, I admire that about her”. The last many three decades of the republican witch-hunt on the Clinton family have molded the incoming 45th of the United States, Hillary Clinton: she and her husband have been through the fire but have still soared so high, proof positive that nothing baffles the achemes of the enemy like a composed soul. Being a Clinton maybe hard but might as well be one of the most rewarding experiences in self-composure and self-discovery. As I said in the first debate commentary ; for those who had doubts, she mopped the floor with an ignorant bigot—she did it again and we are proud of her. The last couple of days have been filled with the most sickening news of the republican flag bearer’s advice; “Grab their p***y”; seeing many republicans un-endorse their nominee and billions of people around the world have the republican party for

When they go low, we go high.

T his wallpaper and I almost fought a duel to point of death, to take over on my phone and laptop screen saver space, but I had to give up very easily because these beautiful words come from one of the most inspirational people in my life . President Obama you are a very blessed man, no wonder you immediately proudly tweeted: “ incredible speech by an incredible woman.Couldn't be more proud and our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS.I love you, Michelle ”. Michelle Obama stole the show, rather perfectly it turns out—and then there was Sen.Booker,they certainly had to be prime speakers, leave alone for Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders who never minces words when it comes to putting Donald Trump in his place. I have waited for this day, almost very impatiently, until it dawned—it was a very rewarding night for me here in Uganda after the continuous and disastrous bigotry from the Trump camp. I must say with pride that if there is anything

Hillary Clinton is certainly prepared to be President

President Obama & Sec Clinton having a chit-chat T he Question of whether she is the most qualified candidate America has ever had for a presidential candidate has never been so answered; for those who had doubts, she came to stage and spoke it with illustration(s), verve and swagger throughout the 90 minutes of the debate at Hofstra University. She eloquently made it clear to her opponent that not only did she prepare for the debate, that her opponent seemed to have been so yappy about; but also proved and lived to the hype of what was expected of her: she mopped the floor with the Donald, I have never laughed so loud, at an ignorant bigot being thumped by an intelligent woman.

IN DEFENSE OF Dr. KIIZA BESIGYE: Andrew Mwenda, Lets PUT THIS TO BED, at ONCE!

In the TV Series, REVENGE, Chronicling the life of a Distraught Emily Thorne: SEASON 1, EPISODE 7 "Charade”, As Hamlet said to Ophelia, "God has given you one face and you make yourself another." The battle between these two halves of identity who we are and who we pretend to be is unwinnable. (This is referring to Shakespeare's famous tragedy Hamlet. These words are said to Ophelia, Hamlet's girlfriend, in anger and frustration). Just as there are two sides to every story, there are two sides to every person. One that we reveal to the world and another we keep hidden inside. A duality governed by the balance of light and darkness. Within each of us is the capacity for both good and evil. But those of us who are able to blur the moral dividing line hold the true power.

Dear President Obama, thank you for being.

Dear President Obama,  I greet you in the name above all names. I waited to write to you my second letter after your final SOTU (state of the union) address not as my last letter to you but as a letter of appreciation for the almost concluded two terms of office .Allow me to first express how so humbled to write to a man whose name has been engraved upon the marble of history. I have fortunately had a few days to prepare otherwise I would make very terrible sentences herein. Again, I am lucky to address a man whose kindred spirit is ingrained in equality and the pursuit of happiness. The last time I wrote to you, I critiqued you. Today, I have very deep gratitude for how fundamentally influential you are and will forever be to my Life and I pray to the life of my descendants. I remember well, in the 2007 democratic primaries that shaped the arc of history of the American Dream, I didn’t support you then.Actually,apart from the inescapable thing we have in common,blackness,I

Barack . H. Obama, the Lasting Imprint.

I may never be the President of the United States or even my country, Uganda , but I am going to die one day and when I am no longer here, my son and those that read about my name should know that President Obama & Michelle have inspired my person, a lot. I was reading Christopher Hitchens book, Mortality, a while ago and reviews of his memoir, Hitchens 22 , these words really touched me a lot: “ I have more than once woken up feeling like death. But nothing prepared me for the early morning in June when I came to consciousness feeling as If I were shackled to my own corpse ”—he goes on to quote Saul Bellow : “ Death is the dark backing that a mirror needs if we are able to see anything ”. I told my surrogate mother, Tabitha Scaife , I would do this before I leave the face of the earth and she said, “ Do it sonny, I believe you are very well equipped ”. Ma, thanks for elevating my confidence . Love you, to Life!
