The Diminishing Decency of the High Office of President of the United States of America

The racist tweets by President Donald Trump against female members of the United States (US) Congress is explicitly indicative of the diminishing decency of the High Office of President and affirmation of Trump's racist nature. 

While some of Trump's antics prior to winning, and while within the White House, have been riddled with arrogance featuring a clear racial sentiment, his Tweets last Sunday against House of Representatives women - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley, are sufficient to confirm to non-Trump America that the president has a problem with women, with race, with national origin, with color and with religion.

Transitioning - a Systems Test

Months of technical difficulties with my Internet publishing platform are forcing a transition to a new publishing system, which should be phased in over the next 10-days. 

Thanks for your patience and continued readership. Hopefully, the system should be up and operating before my Europe visit to the great French Republic and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, in August.

Carrie Lam's Predicament in Hong Kong - Yielding Electorate Consideration or Assumed Toughness

Carrie Lam's seemingly condescending and apathetic response to the demands and actions of demonstrators in Hong Kong might not be deliberate. Instead, Lam's attitude might be the sum of a persona she created or was given that expects her to assume a tough act after years of surviving in the male-dominated world of politics and power in Asia.

My comments are not criticisms of Lam for she must be congratulated for rising from humble beginnings, to the British civil service in Hong Kong, to become Secretary of Development from 2007-12, to Chief Secretary for Administration from 2012-17 before ascending to become Hong Kong's first female Chief Executive in 2017.

"One Country, Two Systems" - the Carrie Lam Stress Variable in Hong Kong

The aspirations of the world's youth are the developmental building blocks of all societies. Even when such aspirations appear to contradict or to counter a governing authority, beneficial balances and compromises are usually formed with a view to maintaining the continuity of the structure that rules.

The ability to reach needed compromise and balance between government and its people defines a jurisdiction's government and its scope to effective authority and rule over the people. 

Publishing Troubles Continue...

For some reason, my publishing difficulties continue via my Internet publisher. If you are able to read this brief post, please note that ever since 2017, whenever I write some particular words or key phrases, I subsequently am unable to post a Blog. If you are able to read this note, then it confirms my haunches that I'm systematically being censored by some unknown party. 

However, I've been able to publish some articles on LinkedIn under my name: Peter Boyce, from which I've shared to Facebook.com and on Twitter @thereallayman. Thanks for your support and readership.
