Donald Trump - The enemy in the US

Trump's latest lies are an open attack on the federal government and the European Union. This US president has never been a partner, he is an aggressive opponent. You should finally treat him accordingly.

Vladimir Putin is covered. The Russian president controls a clever disinformation campaign. The aim of this secret operation is to unsettle the populations of Western countries, to discredit their institutions, to split society, to influence elections and ultimately to overthrow liberal democracy. Nevertheless, not a few people persist in believing that Putin is innocent and that the opposite is a malicious fabrication of Western services. Everything just conspiracy theory?

In any case, nobody can doubt the intentions of Donald Trump. Ever since he was in office, Trump has waged an extermination campaign against multilateral agreements of all kinds. Foreign affairs are not interested in this man, they merely serve him as an instrument of his inward, nationalist "America first" ideology. Cooperation is Trump's weakness. Recent evidence: The US withdraws from the UN Human Rights Council.

Trump is open. The American President is now also running his perpetual disinformation campaign against the Federal Republic of Germany. He uses them to justify his morally depraved refugee policy to the US people. The heartbreaking scenes on the southern US border, where crying children are brutally separated from their parents because they've made the mistake of trying to find a better life for themselves and their families in the US, are now bringing Trump to die-hard supporters Distress. His zero-tolerance policy is a PR disaster that he is now trying to stem by all means - including attacks on Germany.

The local coalition crisis in the dispute over refugee policy took the US president on the occasion of an unprecedented interference. The German people turn away from his leadership, tweeted Trump downright maliciously, the crime had increased sharply, he lied. Throughout Europe, the big mistake has been to let in millions of people who have violently changed the culture there.

Aside from letting that lie, one man, of all places, who, like no other human being at present, is responsible for the brutal attempt to destroy everything that has been painstakingly built since the Second World War on the political culture of inter-peoples' coexistence.

In a second admission, Trump repeated his lie about increased crime in Germany and made another claim: officials would not want to report these crimes. Trump's tweets are reading off directly from a sinking Pegida speech.

From Donald Trump, the world is now used to a lot, he makes it more tender. But blunting must not lead to normalizing and accepting his aggressive insolence. The unsubstantiated allegation that the federal government and the state authorities deliberately lied to the population about the true extent of local crime should not be without consequences. His incitement of angered citizens is nothing more than the open attack of a foreign power on the government of that country. From this White House the direct attempt is made to destabilize the Federal Republic of Germany.

Angela Merkel has reacted too cautiously in the face of this threat. The Chancellor referred only briefly to the recently submitted by Interior Minister Horst Seehofer crime statistics - which speaks for itself. In fact, the crime has fallen slightly, and if there is a German politician to whom you can not insinuate any beautification in this matter, then it is Seehofer.

No, this US President has never been a partner, he is a bitter opponent. We should finally start to treat him accordingly. An appointment of the US ambassador and formal protest can only be a first step. Relations with this US government should be kept to a minimum. It is no longer necessary to continue pretending to be friendly. Germany and the European Union should give up any polite self-restraint in the public assessment of this US government. The line of conversation to her may not break, but it can not be more than a thread. We knew for a long time that we can not rely on the USA under Donald Trump anymore. At least now it is clear: we have to protect ourselves from him.

Henri Fantin-Latour & Edouard Manet und die Schriftsteller: Zola, Verlaine, Rimbaud, Mallarmé etc.

Zwei Phänomene stehen wahrscheinlich in der engen Verbindung zwischen Schriftstellern und Malern der neuen Kunst: zum Einen war es seit den Salons und Diderot allgemein bekannt, dass sich Schriftsteller mit Malerei beschäftigten. Diese Tradition wurde im 19. Jahrhundert fortgesetzt:

im Jahre 1845: Baudelaire veröffentlichte seinen ersten Bericht über den Salon, und das war erst der Anfang.

im Jahre 1866: Zola sammelte die Kritiken, die er in L'Événement unter dem Titel Mon Salon veröffentlicht hatte, den er Paul Cézanne widmete.

Die Presse spielte eine wichtige Rolle bei der Verteidigung kontroverser Maler: es wurden neue Kunstzeitschriften geschaffen, einige davon, wie L'Artiste, zogen renommierte Schriftsteller an, namentlich Champfleury, Baudelaire, Mallarmé, Gautier ...

Eine andere neuere Idee wurde von bestimmten Autoren wie Baudelaire, Nerval, Rimbaud und Mallarmé unterstützt. Dies war die Theorie des Gleichgewichts, nach der mehrere, mysteriöse Analogien in verschiedenen Bereichen in den Tiefen des Universums verborgen sind:

"Die Natur ist ein Tempel, in dem lebende Säulen/ manchmal verwirrte Worte entkommen lassen.../ Wie lange Echos, die aus der Ferne verschmelzen/ in tiefe, dunkle Einheit, / So weit wie die Nacht und das Licht, / Die Düfte, die Farben und die Töne, die sich gegenseitig antworten ... "

Für diese Dichter waren Maler und Schriftsteller in der Lage die geheimnisvolle Einheit der Welt zu erreichen, die spirituelle Realität der Schönheit.

Manet malte ein Porträt von Zola, der 1866 zu seiner Verteidigung gesprochen hatte.

Er malte auch das Bild des Dichters Mallarmé in einer ungezwungenen Pose, der hielt eine Zigarre in der Hand und blätterte durch ein Buch:

der Schriftsteller besuchte den Maler jeweils am späten Nachmittag fast jeden Tag, für zehn Jahre.

Zuletzt porträtierte Fantin-Latour Verlaine und Rimbaud an der Seite einiger junger Dichter in "The Corner of a Table":
