Trump’s Failure – the Government Shutdown

Trump demonstrates, yet again, that he is out of his league. A huge majority of Americans know this to be true but not enough are pissed off enough to actually do anything about it. But that is changing.

As long as the criminal GOP has control of the Senate, they will continue to aid and abet the criminal in the White House. I just hope that when this is all over, they each get investigated with the ferocity that they demonstrated for the endless Benghazi hearings and that the criminals get the prison time or the death sentences they deserve for being traitors against our country.

But getting back to the government shutdown – this just demonstrates Trump’s total inability to actually deal with real people, his total failure to negotiate, his total inability to understand his job or even the extent of the harm he is doing to our country and to the people affected by his silly, childish shutdown temper tantrum.

We need to get the GOP out of the Senate immediately. We need to start recalls on each and every vulnerable Republican senator and even some who aren’t feeling well. We have to clean up the GOP mess right now. 2020 just may be too late.

Another Fine Republican

We often get hate mail and have considered publishing them for the sake of humor, but we decide against it. We believe everyone knows just how rabid people can get over politics. This message came in on our “Contact” page. It true fine Republican form, it is divorced from reality to the point border on humorous. Humorous, with a sprinkle of sad. Here it is. Feel free to comment if you agree or disagree with this.

David,
To call out the Republican party which led right now by DT is more of a third party than ever before is not only ridiculous its a bit irresponsible the upside is not many read this blog. Fascists came to power by hindering opposition, skewing how news is reported and consistently used the media as well as movies to promote their agenda. This is exactly the playbook of the left right now and interestingly enough before Hitler’s true colors FDR often talked about how progressive and insightful Hitler’s plans were, FDR sent a group over to Germany to study his economic plans. The Reich used false dossiers to have his rival killed (sounds familiar). BO left the world burning and I have to say I don’t particularly care for DT’s style but it is working both repubs and dems are getting exposed by DT bc he could really care less what anyone thinks. He sees what we have done for years has been burying our future economy. Basically your last paragraph was just a typical cheap shot by the left who love say things loud as if that makes them true. The current left is that of the nobility of convenience.

Where does one begin with so many misconceptions? I’ll start at the top but have no interest in disprove all the lies that have been debunked so many times before.

  • To call out the Republican party which led right now by DT is more of a third party than ever before is not only ridiculous its a bit irresponsible

The Republican Congress could oppose Trump as their oath of office demands, but they are complicit. Not a single one of them wants to oppose Trump. The GOP is the party of Trump. Trump is not a 3rd party but the natural culmination of the party since the adoption of the Southern Strategy.

  • This is exactly the playbook of the left right now

Demonizing the press is exactly the GOP and Trump’s playbook. Have you not been paying attention? Ever heard the phrase, “fake news,” or, “enemy of the people?” It’s not the left saying that. Where have you been? What rock are you finding your news under? Please tell me you’re not foolish enough to believe Fox or the other GOP propaganda.

Okay, I’m tired of this. Feel free to come back with some credible links to back up your assertions. Doing the research to accomplish that just might open up your eyes to the lies your being fed.

It is no joke, Today’s Conservatism is a treatable sickness

I’ve seen it discussed on this blog on numerous posts but it’s so important that it’s worth bring up again. Spend a moment or two reading about the Authoritarian mindset and how it’s poisonous to a free country.

Read about the Milgram studies showing people absolutely acquiescing to authority to the point of possibly killing people who were the target in the studies.

These are exactly the kind of people that made Hitler and so many of the other brutal dictators in our world’s history.

Read Martha Stout’s book, The Sociopath Next Door and you will get a feel for how these damaged authoritarian followers are such easy prey for a monster. All such easy followers are harmful to a democracy.

And the good news is they can be fixed once we admit we have a problem.

This is Not Normal

We must work to ensure this does not become the norm.

America has endured an endless stream of unbelievable and unacceptable embarrassments from the Trump administration. We are becoming numb to the horrors. Worst of all, the Republican representatives who are responsible for censoring Trump are all too happy to circle the wagons rather than actually having investigations into the wrong doings.

This is not normal. Even Nixon had Republicans around him who were prepared to see that the crimes were investigated. Today’s GOP just wants to brush it under the rug.

This is not normal.

When a political party holds the needs of their party over the needs of America it can only be bad for America. It is not normal for an American political party to downplay the fact that a foreign country has meddled with our elections. Regardless of whether or not you believe it influenced the outcome, it is an attack from a foreign country and needs to be brought to light. Yet, the GOP hides and downplays it.

Is that normal?

A president fires government official who are responsible for investigating this which seems to be an obvious obstruction of justice. Maybe it was just a stupid mistake. Maybe. But if Obama had been involved in it during his presidency, there would have been endless investigations and allegations. Yet, we hear nothing from the party now that it’s one of their own.

This is not normal. We cannot allow this to stand. We must take back our democracy and get out the party that will hide attacks from a foreign country to protect their president.

This is not a Democratic or Republican issue, it’s an American issue. No party is more important than the needs of our great country and anyone who is trying to downplay this is hurting our nation.

This is not normal.
