We are fortunate to have so many politicians to choose from. Our initial lineup includes Legendary figures Donald Trump, Barack Obama, Benjamin Bibi Netanyahu and Vlad the Lad Putin. As time goes on, we will populate our selection with a little more. Perhaps a little Tony Blair, Margaret Thatcher or Dick Cheney. I know many people would LOVE a George Bush. Hell, why not end a positive note with Bernie Sanders?
We will introduce these politicians on an ongoing basis. When a politician makes a gaff that affects the global population whether it has to do with human rights or simply corruption, we will be right behind with a masterpiece of our own.
By the way, if you are wondering why Obama's original retail price was only $7 million VS Trump's $4 Billion that is because we are using their net worth's as original price. Putin's got the steepest discount.
Obama has had a lot to deal with since taking over from George W. Bush. Over his last 8 years, he has worked harder than expected being severely hindered by congress. When the Nobel peace prize committee awards Obama the prize in 2009 for "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples". they certainly had no consideration for his increase in the use of drone warfare. In 2015, when confronted with questions about his controversial program, Obama responded "It is a cruel and bitter truth that in the fog of war generally, and our fight (against) terrorists specifically, mistakes, sometimes deadly mistakes, can occur," Obama, in his determination to end U.S. land wars in the Middle East and South Asia, significantly escalated the drone program put in place by the Bush administration and has carried out hundreds of strikes in the lawless border regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan in a classified program that top officials rarely discuss publicly.
Obama has had a positive impact on the USA and in many other regions around the world. He has stood as a symbol for hope in a time when the world needed someone to lead in the right direction. As the leader of the free world, there are no easy decisions to make.View full product details

Benjamin Netanyahu - The Dick Cheney of Israel
Where do you start with Netanyahu? Similarly to Cheney, Bibi has consistently lied to the public through the use of media. He has used fear mongering to win elections and gain support. In the most recent 2015 elections, Netanyahu loudly declared that If elected, there will be no Palestinian state. It was nice for him to officially declare his stance again despite going back on his words following his victory. Who knows, maybe he is saying he wants a solution to appease international pressure while stealing more land and building more settlements. The reality is that the state of Israel has an issue of affordable housing and the best way to gain more land is to prolong the conflict. Netanyahu represents a sector of Israelites that don´t want peace with Palestine. To Bibi, there are no moderate muslims, only extremists. Israel has got a massive housing problem, it always has. Therefore they sort of need to take land from the Palestinians just to afford housing. He claims that he´s in favour of peace because how could he not? He´s far more interested in gaining land to build houses and stop everyone complaining about expensive housing. Add to this, Netanyahu’s abysmal human rights record and his blatant and unprecedented interference in the US elections as well as indirectly endorsed and financed ads to swing the vote towards Romney in Florida. Who can forget him going behind Obama’s back and addressing congress and receiving 30 standing ovations all bought and paid for by AIPAC and the Israel lobby.
It is for these reasons and many more why we have included Bibi Netanyahu in our list of politikats.

Donald Trump - The John Stewart of the GOP
Donald Trump Cat scratching post
A refreshing candidate in a world crippled by political correctness and career politicians Trump has the brash confidence to speak his mind.
While some may suspect that his candidacy is merely a publicity stunt, the fact remains that Trump is first in the poles and getting praise not for his words but for what he represents. His comments on Mexican immigrants during his candidacy announcement was a clever ploy to win votes from the far right. While his comments on immigrants and Senator John Mccain have landed him in hot water, Trump is solely responsible for breaking political orthodoxy by saying what he truly thinks.
The Donald’s strategy has been to appeal to the unhappiness that many feel about the current class of politicians. Washington is inefficient and corrupted by campaign finance, and we fully agree. However, as much as the incumbent class of politicians has failed, entrusting our country to a Hugo (Chavez) Trump would bring us back and not forward. Don’t make him president, but let him clean up the political scene in his signature no nonsense manner. “For many years I’ve said that if someone screws you, screw them back”. I've often told detractors that the GOP needs more Trumps due to the spineless leadership entrenched in this modern era. Trump brings a fighting spirit. It's him against the world and watch out. Him not being a politician that takes on the political oligarchy is an attractive quality to us at Politikats.
He is not groomed to be a politician, does not prepare scripted answers. He speaks the truth, even if it is his “truth”. He doesn’t wait for the poles to be complete in order to figure which position to support. Trump have broken conventional wisdom that you have to be a professional politician to run. Trump could inspire smart individuals who may not have been politically scrubbed to become more outspoken and bring interest to todays greatest issues. Was it not Plato or Aristotle who said that people who should lead the government should be people who do not want to be a politician, but do it because they want want. It is quite a sad state of affairs when politics has become so sterile because of the script and answers. This is a step forward toward accepting candidates because of what they can do rather than what headlines they create.
Yes there are issues with immigration and yes, there is no reason to address them in such a douchebag fashion, however, for Trump, any publicity is good publicity. This attention simply feeds into his hands and gathers more followers who are frustrated with Washington’s inefficient solutions.
Who knows, perhaps Trumps aim is to make the GOP look foolish and pave the way for Hillary Clinton to secure the minorities/latino and women voters while making voters go against the likes of Jeb Bush or Scott Walker. It will be interesting to see if his running has any positive externalities on Hillary’s candidature although we suspect that his no nonsense approach to debates may bring some issues to Clinton’s campaigning.
It is because of his refreshing, take no prisoners, blunt and fiery attitude that we have included Trump in our Politkats line. From those who are tired of sterile and calculated politics, here is to you Donald, good luck in the debates. Go get them Tiger!View full product details
