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.

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.

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.

Anyone else want to comment?

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.
