News and opinions of today’s politics

America, Democracy in Crisis

This might sound like I’m pushing the emergency button, or pulling the fire alarm, but, well, I am. Democracy’s house is on fire and we’re running out of time to save it.

America has an imposter in the White House. Numerous investigations have proven this, including the Mueller investigation. In other words, we have a dangerous traitor acting as president, a man who lost the election by three MILLION votes.

But it’s not just the PROVEN Russian asset in the White House, but it’s also the entire Republican party. When presented with the evidence, with the facts, the Republican party chooses to not only refuse to hear the case, but to actually interfere with the case so the facts are not presented to the public.

Would a political party that does things this criminal and harmful to America ever come back from the dark ugly place they are in?  Would any sane person trust them to do the right thing for America? Of course not.

Now Donald Trump is saying he might not step down when he is voted out. He threatens to become a dictator. And the Republican party still supports him. Don’t think for a moment that they aren’t hoping that their help for the dictator will bring them benefits in the future. The party is selling out America.

Trump has politicized every facet of our government so there will be no agency, no forces available to evict him when he appoints himself Hitler.

Voting is not going to get these traitors, these enemy combatants out of control. Everyone is chanting, “vote, vote, vote,” and yes, we need to vote, but we need to be bringing this country to a standstill until the Republican party finds their patriotism, even if it’s just for show.

We can see America’s enemy. They are not hiding, not pretending to be Americans. They are supporting the coup. But, what is just as dangerous is the Democratic party. They are acting blind to everything that is going on. Trump commits imprisonable crimes almost daily and impeachable crimes at every opportunity, yet, the Democratic party is unable or unwilling to drive this into the eyes and minds of the American people.

The only way we can wake up the masses is to show them, every day, every minute, the crimes against our country and the dangers we now face. And the only way we can do this is with advertising and impeachment hearings. We need to start investigations into the Republicans who are supporting Trump and visiting Russia for marching orders. Yet, the Democratic party is silent. Why?

Call your Democratic representatives and demand that we start investigations and impeachment. We can’t wait till the election. And get out there and vote and bring your friends and family with you. America can’t afford for anyone to stay home on election day.

Thank a Republican for COVID-19

This national disaster is all on the Republicans. 85,000 Americans have already died and many more to come. All because the Republicans voted for Trump and the traitors who continue to shield him from justice.

But it’s not just Americans who are dying because of the Republicans.  Many outbreaks around the world are from someone leaving America. Since the Republicans didn’t take voting seriously, and the Republican party didn’t take governing seriously, this disaster got out of hand. For months Trump and the rest of the Republicans were all saying it’s a hoax, or it’s going to disappear, or any number of other lethal fairy tales.

So now the economy is in the toilet because the Republican voters elected a moron who doesn’t know what to do and voted in a party that doesn’t even believe in science.

84,000 dead Americans [see the Coronavirus Update] and a hearty thank you to the Republican voters and their criminal GOP party.

But that’s not bad enough on its own merits. These same Republicans are now marching on the state capitols and sticking Trump signs in their yards. They refuse to learn, just like the GOP refuses to learn.

Take a breath, believe in science, and let’s get this thing fixed. But the only way we can fix this is to remove and imprison the GOP guilty of the neglect that has lead to these 84,000 deaths.

Capitalism is Killing Us

There is no way to defend Trump’s handling of this national disaster. Anyone who has been paying attention knows that he downplayed the disaster and even called it a hoax, repeatedly. For those reasons many many people have died needlessly.

Add to that all the countless other stupid mistakes and now we are looking at many tens of thousands of dead that didn’t need to. ALL BECAUSE TRUMP.

And the foolish decisions just keep compounding the problem. However, many of the mistakes are the fault of the GOP and their failed love affair with capitalism.

We don’t have enough ventilators, not enough Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for our medical army. We don’t have tests. We don’t have any way to tell us how many cases we really have in the USA.

We don’t have a cure or even a treatment.

All of these last idiotic failures are because the GOP wants Capitalism to provide. This is an EMERGENCY. Capitalism doesn’t provide. So Trump declined tests from the WHO because Trump was waiting for someone to make a buck off it. Trump has war powers he can use to demand corporations  provide the necessary equipment but he’s waiting for someone to make a buck.

Our front line medical personnel are dying by the thousands because of lack of PPE. Again, Trump could have commissioned companies to provide the necessary equipment, but he’s waiting for someone to make a buck. In fact, Trump spent millions of dollars on a company to make a profit making the PPE and guess what. The company was a sham, no employees, no way to produce the products.

Why are our stores out of masks? Out of sanitizers? Out of gloves? Again, Trump should have commissioned the making of all these essential items. But, no, he’s waiting for someone to make a buck.

Why don’t we have an immunization for this yet? You guessed it. Because Trump’s waiting for someone to make a buck off it. When  the immunization becomes available, the company who makes it will price it so high that many thousands will not be able to afford it.

Many millions of Americans can not afford health insurance and certainly can’t afford to run to the doctor. So they get sick and many die and their deaths are never added to the country’s totals – all, because Trump wants someone to make a buck. We should have federally provided insurance and during times like this, we should have federally funded health care. But, no. Someone has to make a buck while Americans die.

It’s time America woke up and realized that Capitalism is killing us by the minute.

The CoronaVirus, COVID-19 doesn’t care about Capitalism

Don’t get me wrong. Capitalism is great in its place but expecting Capitalism to help in any way during an emergency is a special kind of stupid. We call that stupid the GOP.

Billions more for the rich

Tomorrow, 3/23/2020 the Republicans are trying to ram through more money for their billionaires while stiffing the rest of us.

They are playing games with our lives. Their stupidity is already destroying our economy.

Call your Congressman and tell them, House Representatives and Senators and let them know that you don’t want more money for the rich.

If the money doesn’t go to the middle class and poor, we will die. The billionaires don’t need it, but, hey, it’s never enough is it?

Call your Congressman now. No money for the rich or corporations.

Where to Get Coronavirus

Want to know where to go to get the Coronavirus? The TrumpVirus, also known as COVID-19 is spreading like wildfire because of Trump’s actions and inactions.

But, want to know where to go to get it? Hobby Lobby CEO is telling their managers to keep the stores open. After all, you know, it’s just a Democrat hoax, right? If you are a Trump supporter, may I suggest you might want to run right on down there and prove to everyone that you’re not fooled by pesky facts, and science.

Hobby Lobby Stays Open

Trump Lies

Americans are dying because of Trump’s lies and his failure as a president.

America deserves better.

Donate  to any Democrat of your choice until this crisis is over. The Republicans do not know how to govern. This is what happens when we become complacent. It’s time to vote them all out.

America deserves better.

Coronavirus is killing people because of trump

Trump’s response to the COVID-19 Coronavirus has been worse than not having a president at all. People are dying, people are spreading this because Trump doesn’t know how to handle a crisis.

Take a look at our government. When we put unqualified people in the administration and in our agencies, things break down. There is no room for nepotism. It only leads to deaths. But, nepotism is the Republican way. They have always put political hacks in positions of power. Now we get to see why this is such a stupid thing to do.

And why it ‘s such a stupid thing to vote for a Republican.

Calling this a Chinese virus is an awful thing to do. Hundreds of innocent Americans are being attacked because they look asian and Trump has mobilized his ignorant racists into attacking Americans.

If you know anyone who really thinks Trump is doing a fine job with this or any other of his responsibilities, please explain to them what the facts are.

Because of Trump, America has been treating the virus like Italy and only China beats Italy in the size of the disaster. But, we are soon to be near the top of the list, too. At least Italy is now doing everything they can to fix this. We, on the other hand, are attacking each other and licking handrails because the ignorant believe when Trump says this is a hoax.

This disaster in America is the TrumpVirus.

It is a sad sad time in the history of America and it is all Trump’s and the GOP’s  fault.

Just Another Day in Paradise

Our stock market is in free fall, leading us into another Republican Depression.

Our country’s election system is under attack by foreign governments.

America is suffering a pandemic the like of which we have not seen in our lifetimes, Coronavirus, COVID-19.

People are panicking in the streets hoarding what they can get their hands on.

Our healthcare system is under attack.

And what is Trump doing today? He’s going to pardon a convicted criminal, a traitor who helped Russia hack our elections in 2016.

I don’t think America can take any more of this greatness.

Republicans not only unprepared but dangerously ignorant

Trump refuses to work with the Democrats elected by Americans. Trump doesn’t want to work with Pelosi on the Coronavirus , COVID-19 pandemic because, well, because she made Trump feel bad. Too bad for all the Americans dying from the virus, Trump got his little feelings hurt so he doesn’t care if we live or die.

But, hey, America finally forced his hand and he agreed to sign the Democrats’ bill to save American lives. But now the Republican Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell is out of town, because, well you know, he doesn’t really care that Americans are dying any more than Trump does.

I realize that Fox and the rest of the GOP propaganda disparages liberals and Democrats every chance they can, but it is obvious to anyone who actually pays attention that the Democrats are trying to save our country and save our people and the Republicans are totally unprepared to do anything to help. In fact, all they do is interfere with solutions.

 

Small enough to drown in a bathtub of coronavirus

Since the Reagan era, the Republican party has made it their mission to “shrink our government so small you could drown it in a bathtub.”

Well, they finally succeeded.

We are now totally unprepared to deal with the Coronavirus and trump is still working on shuttering agencies, pulling funding from the very agencies that we created to deal with emergencies like this.

The actual words of the Republican operatives was to, “shrink government so small you could drown it in a bathtub.” Their intentions have been obvious for 40 years now and they have succeeded.

Take a look around. The crumbling smoldering mess that it left of our once great country is solely the fault of the Republican party and the billionaires who support them, the very billionaires who don’t want to pay their fair share in taxes and would rather see America in ruins.

Take a look around. This is what you get when you’re foolish enough to even consider voting Republican.

Trump Dictatorship or is it Fascism

Trump Cult
Trump Cult (The Economist.com)

Numerous studies have shown that the bills and laws passed over the past two decades have all been passed for the benefit of the corporations and the wealthy. We have been in a Fascist state for decades now. The term scares people so they don’t want to believe it, but look around and wake up.

But now we face an entirely new danger. We face the real threat of a takeover of our entire government from the Fascist GOP. They do every thing in their power to make it harder to vote. Believe it or not, this is not what happens in a real democracy.

And now, today, we see the GOP mutating into a party of Trump, or as most experts say, the Cult of Trump. We have seen our country slide endlessly into the pits of disaster and we keep thinking it’s okay, we’ll spring back.

Well, this time, we are not going to spring back. The only way we will survive the GOP and Trump is if we all get active. We must all get in the streets. We need to do it now. Start marching today. Pick a street corner and hold up a sign. If we wait much longer, the only way back will be dead bodies in the streets. Riots. General strikes that will affect all our jobs.

So, we can get active today and participate in peaceful marches, or watch our country burn under Trump and his GOP.

Got a minute? Call for Impeachment

Happy Labor Day

Happy Labor Day America and the rest of the world as well. Remember, labor unions have been one of the best things to help Americans live the America Dream. You can’t get ahead if your employer has you over the barrel. As long as you’re fighting among yourselves, the company can ask for and demand anything.

Happy Labor Day and thank a union

The Crime Party Formerly Known as the GOP

The Republican party has become criminal and completely out of control. There are so many crimes by the Republican party and Trump that we will only be able to investigate and exact justice for a small portion of them.

Let’s not forget the Epstein case. The GOP is not even trying to hide their crimes anymore:

-We are to believe a rich man arrested for human trafficking,
-tried to commit suicide
-put on watch for only a week
-was suppose to have a cell mate
-one guard wasn’t a regular
-both guards fell asleep
-missed 3, 30 minute checks
-both cameras have gaps
-and Barr un-recused his recusal?

Saving the lives of Babies

Trump has gone from tear-gassing families seeking refuge to imprisoning kids in cages and is now actually killing kids that need medical attention by returning them to a home where there is no help, no medical services.

Yet, the Republicans support this monster and the unethical party, the GOP, that shields Trump.

The Republican can never again use the term pro-life, ever. The party has traded in the last of their hollow values to support the works of a madman.

And, don’t try to fool anyone. Saying you don’t agree with it or saying you wouldn’t have voted for him had you known, are all just child’s play. Everyone knew who Trump was. And if you’re really aghast at his crimes, you would be out in the streets getting your mistake removed from office. But, you’re not. You are doing nothing, thereby giving him more cover for his continually escalating crimes.

This is a sickening and disgusting era in American history and the Republican politicians and the Republican voters will go down in history as the evil corrupt people they obviously are.
