News has evolved from word of mouth, to newspapers, to Radio, to TV, the internet and social media. Somewhere along the way, we have been conditioned to not believe any of these sources. The term “Fake News” is relatively new and was hijacked then adulterated by Donald Trump. It was initially used to identify obviously false information. It was not designed to cast doubt on all news. The only way to dismiss all sources of news is to be present yourself at every event world wide and that of course is impossible. So at some level, you have to believe some of the news you are exposed to. Just proceed cautiously and trust but verify. Instead we are asked to believe the word of President Trump, a pathological liar, and Fox News only. This Blog will focus only on TV News for now. Here are some names in TV news that were trusted giants in their industry: Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite, Chet Huntley, David Brinkley, Peter Jennings, Tom Brokaw. Some of you are too young to remember these men, but you have to understand there are still some news broadcasters that maintain their integrity. Of course, occasional errors are made in TV news reporting, but a fair and balanced News agency will make the necessary corrections as soon as possible.

Watch more than one news source then compare each. Usually if they all agree, the story is probably reliable. If one source disagrees with the majority, the majority is usually right. Just don’t forget to trust but verify. That’s where facts come in. Federal websites and State websites are usually a reliable source of information and facts. Remember, people are entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts. Armed with facts, you don’t have to guess if a story is true or fake. Treat News like the Constitution treats indicted criminals, innocent until proven guilty. Believing that all news is fake just proves you are lazy, narrow minded, and have a simple mind. America you have plenty of brain cells. Don’t waste them.

President Trump has been downplaying the severity of the COVID-19 virus for months. He was even mocking Joe Biden for wearing a mask even though the experts stated that the simple act of wearing a mask could reduce the chance of getting the virus. The bottom line is, President Trump could have probably avoided his exposure. I do hope he does not get seriously ill, but he does have significant risk factors regarding age and being over weight.

This one event sums up who President Trump is and how his reelection is truly a CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER for the United States and the Constitution. Trump is simply a con artist, liar, and an unempathetic self serving ego maniac who suffers from delusions of grandeur. During the first debate, Trump was clearly out of control. He was like a rabid dog, attacking Joe Biden and Chris Wallace, the moderator of the debate. Between his debate performance and him being positive for Covid-19, you simply can’t trust anything he says and now you know he can wildly lose control of his emotions. Chris Wallace had to constantly remind him to allow him to ask his questions and allow Joe Biden to answer his questions without interruptions. Imagine Trump going into a blind rage during a nuclear crisis. If he can do that on a debate stage, he can certainly do that on the world stage.

The question is, did you listen to Trump or the science and medical experts regarding the virus. Trump said the virus was not a big deal, but the experts said take simple precautions like wear a mask. So who did you listen to? Now ask yourself, do you have family or friends who got sick or died? If you listened to Trump, you backed the wrong horse and the chickens have come home to roost. This sums up the Trump Presidency. I hope these recent events will guide you to make the best decision you can possibly make in the voting booth. God bless you and God bless the United States of America.

Trump is a compulsive, habitual, and pathological liar. He can’t help himself. Lying is like breathing for him. The problem is, his dedicated followers simply don’t care. Those same followers give him a pass on all of the many things he says and does that are just anti-American, antisocial, anti-intuitive, and sometimes just vindictive. Of course he can fire anyone in his administration that disagrees with him, but to fire a twin brother or deny a pension one month before retirement to an FBI Agent is just hateful.

Here are just a few other things you know are Unconstitutional or just plain wrong:

  • Taking Putin’s word over U.S. Intelligence Agencies
  • Trump removed peaceful protestors
  • All news is fake news. Really? We are supposed to believe a pathological liar instead?
  • His policy led to children in cages
  • Trump states that he knows more than his Generals
  • Trump ignores the advice of medical experts and doctors and does not initiate a national effort to control the spread of the COVID-19 Virus. As a result, over 200,000 have died. Yes he initiated a Chinese and EU travel ban which saved lives, but every life lost after that is from his downplaying of the severity of the COVID-19 virus and the use of mask. To this day he is attracting super spreader crowds. He made no attempt to hide the fact that the economy was more important than human life.
  • The Constitution gives Congress oversite over the Executive branch of government. Trump ignored subpoenas, failed to appear, and encouraged his staff to do the same. This shows that the Constitution and the rule of law means nothing to him. By the way, his taxes are still being audited. Yeah, riiiiiiiight!!!!
  • The Kurds helped the U.S. fight Isis, but he withdrew military cover allowing them to be at the mercy of Syria.
  • Trump is quick to point out that the social unrest about Black lives matter has resulted in riots, looting, and several police shootings that are happening in mostly blue states. He spends very little time talking about the unarmed citizens killed and maimed by the police which started the social unrest in most of those places in the first place. By the way, most of the COVID-19 hot spots are in red states and far more people are getting sick and dying than in the blue state “RIOTS”. Trump doesn’t mention that.
  • During the social, economic, and medical crisis, previous Presidents try to calm the country and pull us together. Not Trump. He is hellbent on tossing grenades and pouring gasoline on the fires. Trump is a coward, he never admits he is wrong, wants you to believe he is the smartest man alive, he never accepts responsibility for anything, and he always blames someone else for everything that goes wrong on his watch.

You Trump supporters always say things like Trump misspoke, that’s not what he meant, he was just joking. Even Trump said “I never kid.” So how many times are you going to give him a pass? Aren’t you tired of trying to explain his actions? It must be exhausting to cover for him everyday. At some point you have to come to the realization that Trump is mentally unstable and he is ripping the fabric of Democracy apart. He is not fit to continue as President of these great United States. With any one of the above items, he should be disqualified to be President and dog catcher too. When you look at all of them together, you wouldn’t want someone like that living next to you, so why would you want him as President?

When you seriously think about Trumps words and actions, don’t think of them as character flaws, see them for what they are. They are a simple choice of right verses wrong, lawful verses unlawful, and Constitutional verses Unconstitutional. You should let your heart guide you regarding right verses wrong, but lawful and Constitutional you can actually look up. Some of you need to stop accepting everything that Trump says as fact and start looking things up. You’ll be amazed when you are exposed to facts. Happy reading.

For years, Republicans have been telling Americans that they are the party of fiscal responsibility. They’ve been promoting Trickle Down economics, by catering to corporate America, keeping the deficit low,  and tax cuts for Americans. During that same time, they have been trying to limit government programs that help people with food, healthcare, increased wages, and educational cost. Their approach is working for the rich. Corporate profits are high as are the salaries of corporate executives. Rich individuals are happy with Trumps tax bill. Trump even said, “Congratulations, you all just go a lot richer“. The only problem is, none of that money Trickled Down. The middle class and poor did not see a significant increase in wages, jobs, or healthcare. They never have and never will with Republicans in control of the economy. The following graphs expose the Republican perennial lies.

HERE ARE THE NUMBERS

The Numbers simply don’t lie. They clearly show that Republicans handle the economy much worse than Democrats. When comparing almost all metrics, they lose to Democrats almost every time. Republicans are making it difficult to get a decent wage, a decent job, try to deny you social services that provide food, child services, and healthcare, and keep trying to gut Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. As you can see by the numbers, they preside over deficits and recessions more often than Democrats. The stock market doesn’t do as well under Republicans. So if Republicans have a bad record on the economy, bad on jobs and unemployment, and bad on social issues, why would you vote Republican? What have the Republicans done for you, ever? Better yet, what have the policies of President Trump done for you over the past 3 1/2 years? I’ll bet if you don’t have money in the stock market or have a retirement plan, you’re going to be hard pressed to come up with something positive. If you can think of something, let me know by leaving a comment.

I’ve been saying in my Blog that Trump is dangerous for America and American Democracy for the past 3 years. Finally, there are high ranking officials in Trump’s Administration (General Mark Milley Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff & Mark Esper Defense Secretary)  and previous Presidential Administrations that agree. Most of these officials are Generals and Admirals. They have an unwritten code to not make negative comments about a past or sitting President. Many of them broke that code when President Trump used force to break up a peaceful protest so he could have a photo op in Lafayette Square. This shows Trump’s ignorance of the Constitution of the United States, his poor judgement, his lack of mature leadership, his poor understanding of the American people and society, and his blatant rejection of the rule of law. If you don’t agree with or understand these basic strengths relating to the Constitution, then you are the anarchist and traitor to the United States of America and not the protesters.

The following is a video that captures the essence of many, not all, President Trump voters.

Very funny Trump voter video

If you are like the voters in the Trump voter video, and you don’t have any good, and sometimes no answer as to why you support President Trump or why you support almost anything he does and says, then you need to vote for someone other than Donald Trump November 3, 2020. If you don’t vote for someone else, you are just being silly. Just to remind you, anyone Republican or Democrat, would be a better President for America than Donald Trump.

 

TRUMP LIAR

Donald Trump is a Dictator wanna be who is in a position to make good on his wish by dividing instead of uniting the great citizens of the U.S. He already has his base ignoring his criminal, immoral, and treasonous behavior. They don’t care about his incessant pathological lying, and has them believing that he is the only one telling the truth. He has weakened their faith in our Intelligence Agencies, Justice System, Legislative Branch of Government, and all news media except FOX News. He is fanning the fires of racism. Finally, he is destroying the essence of the Constitution of the United States by ignoring the rule of law and running our great nation with knee-jerk responses instead of careful thought. Trump’s followers stick with him because he is bold, unapologetic, cusses like them, and thinks of women like they are pieces of meat. And yes, there must be a few women that like being thought of in that way. How else do you explain Women For Trump t-shirts? If anybody but Trump grabbed them by the vagina, the guy doing the grabbing would be going to jail.

Now the question is, how do you prevent a dictator from rising to power? Congress must enact laws to protect the American people against lies, deceit, and foreign interference as follows:

A candidate for President must be disqualified if found to be deliberately lying to the electorate, giving misleading information about their platform, or engaging with members of a foreign government within 5 years before and during the campaign for President. Once a candidate is nominated for President by their Party, the Federal Government must vet the nominee. If the nominee does not pass the vet, the runner up must now be vetted, and so on. Adultry with a Porn star when you are married, while immoral, is not illegal or a problem, but paying to keep it quiet so you can become President is a felony. You go directly to jail. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.

Once a President is seated, he is sworn to uphold, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. If he deliberately fails to do his duty on any or all levels, he is in violation of the Constitution. In that scenario, the Constitution mandates that he be Impeached. Trump in currently in violation of the Constitution by ignoring the rule of law, obstructing justice, and ignoring subpoenas. The Legislative Branch of Government has oversight over the President’s Branch of Government. This oversight is mandated by the Constitution. The House of Representatives is also ignoring the rule of law by not initiating impeachment. They are “weighing their political options”. In other words, they are trying to keep their jobs and win the Presidency in 2020. The Constitution did not say, don’t impeach if you may lose your job or an election. None of that will matter if we lose our Democracy, empathy, and morality as a nation. If they don’t stop Trump now, they are sending the message that future Presidents can run the country the same way he is doing.  We now live in a country where lying is the norm, our allies are treated with disrespect, our enemies are our best friends, racism is just a nuisance, and Trump is the only one to be trusted. Really!!!! 1. Trump lies on camera all the time. How many times have you seen him lie with a straight face on camera? 2. Did you see him agree with Putin over the CIA about Russian interference with our 2016 elections? 3. How many times did he alienate our allies on camera? 4, How much more air, water, and land pollution can we tolerate? The Paris Climate Accords may have been unfair to the U.S., but who cares about fairness if you can’t breathe the air, drink the water, or grow crops. Still no replacement plan. 5. Trump makes racist tweets and comments. 6. A sampling of Trump ignoring the Rule of Law.

The above six items can only lead to a divided people, chaotic government, and moral decay which ultimately leads to the loss of our freedoms and the fall of our civilization. Is a booming economy, rich people getting richer,  Conservative Judges on the Supreme court, Immigrant bans, and making our new allies Communists worth the destruction of our system of Government and the loss of our freedoms?Republicans don’t want you to vote for Democrats because they are Socialist leaning. Democrats may be leaning toward Socialism, but the Republican President is openly embracing Communist leaders. What’s wrong with this picture? Socialism is an ideal that suggest that all Citizens benefit and contribute equally in the society. Communism is an organization that forces the will of a few over all the Citizens. Neither choice is ideal, but if you had to pick one, Socialism is better than Communism. Of course, we have the best system and it’s called Democracy. Let’s keep it. You know what to do in 2020!!!!

Here is a link you can use to read the entire redacted Mueller Report. There are only two things you need to know about the Mueller Report.

1.  Collusion was NOT a consideration. Instead, Mueller looked at the possibility of Conspiracy of the Trump campaign to work with the Russians to interfere with the 2016 Presidential election. Though there were many contacts between the Trump campaign personnel and the Russians, and much interest on both sides to reap the benefits,Mueller found no evidence that the Trump campaign benefitted from those contacts or Russia was offered anything to help the Trump campaign (Vol. I Section IV). So technically, there was no conspiracy and no collusion. In my opinion, with all the Russian contacts with Trump Campaign officials, the Russians were just too smart to get caught. The Trump people weren’t that smart. Remember Don Jr. chomping at the bit to get dirt on Hillary Clinton (Vol.I Page 110 Item 5). Intent was clearly established. There was an attempt to get dirt on Hillary from the Russians. Just because they didn’t does not negate the crime. If you conspire or attempt to commit murder, you still go to jail if you get caught because legally, intent is established. Mueller could have ruled definitively on this type of evidence. There were just too many Russians crawling around the Trump campaign.

2.  Regarding Obstruction, Mueller did not indict the President because of the OLC recommendation (Vol II Page 2 Third Point). During the Executive Conclusion, Mueller stated that if Trump did not commit obstruction, he would have stated that. He also stated that in his conclusions, the President is NOT exonerated (Vol II Page 8 Conclusion). Just because Trump says there was no obstruction and he is completely exonerated, does not make it so. Remember, Trump is a prolific pathological liar.

The OLC recommendation is not a law. It states that you can’t indict a sitting President because it may interfere with the performance of his duties as President. I hope that recommendation gets changed into a law that states: If the President steals from the American people, commits treason, or murders anyone, he should be immediately removed from office, charged, and convicted. Trump is stealing from the poor and giving to the rich with the tax plan he put into effect last year. He committed treason on national TV when he believed Putin over our own Intelligence Agencies regarding Russian Interference with the 2016 Presidential election. It is also treason that he has said or done very little to make sure it doesn’t happen again. The only thing left is he hasn’t murdered anyone that we know of. Who knows, if we keep digging, no pun intended, Trump might get that box checked too.

Here is my summary. Volume I did not establish conspiracy, but there were a ton of Russians mingling with the Trump Campaign Staff. If it walks like a duck, acts like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck.

Volume II did establish obstruction but Mueller did not indict because of the OLC recommendations. Remember, Mueller said if there was no obstruction, he would have said so, and he could not exonerate the President. Vol II is quite clear on those points. No guesswork necessary.

Now it’s up to the American people to see how dangerous President Trump is for America. He is a con artist, a thief, a liar, he is keeping our country divided by stoking the fires of Xenophobia, and he is against clean energy, water and air. He is causing world chaos by weakening ties with our allies, actively seeking alliances with dictators, abandoning Nuclear Treaties,  and ignoring the Constitution. It’s one thing to say something is fake news, but it’s another thing to try and censure the news media, say our complete system of justice, intelligence, and law enforcement is corrupt. He would have you believe that he is the only one you can trust. If you believe that, I am more worried about you than I am President Trump.

IT’S MUELLER TIME

First things first. The Special Counsel’s Report on Russian meddling in our Democratic process and whether President Trump committed collusion or obstruction is complete. NEITHER CONGRESS OR THE PUBLIC KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT’S IN THE REPORT!!!!!!

Attorney General Barr stated in his summary that there was no collusion, the charge of Trump’s obstruction of justice was inconclusive, and regarding obstruction of justice, President Trump was NOT EXONERATED. Keep in mind that Barr is nothing more than the FOX GUARDING THE HENHOUSE when you take into account the unsolicited memo he wrote to audition for the Attorney General job. That being the case, his summary really has no credibility.

Of course President Trump’s response to Barr’s report was a half truth (“there was no collusion”) and a lie (“he was completely and totally exonerated”). Because of Barr’s bias for the President, the collusion question is still on the table, and even Barr, President Trump’s main man, stated that regarding the obstruction charge, Trump was NOT EXONERATED. Trump can’t help himself. Lying is like breathing for him.

Now here is my take on all of this. Everybody needs to calm down. We need to save our energy for when Muller’s report is made public and not a moment before, unless it is not made public. If that happens, then we should go nuclear!!!!!

Trump supporters, you elected a man that is a pathological liar, ignores the Rule of Law, tries to delegitimize the Press, the Justice Department, and Intelligence Agencies, changes his mind about signing legislation at the drop of a hat, has admitted to committing sexual harassment, takes credit for the booming economy that Obama created, is at the center of our current political chaos, has polarized our nation, and destabilized the world. Even with all these obvious signs, why are some of you still supporting Trump? What’s wrong with you people. Do you have low moral character too, or are you racists or just too stupid to understand what you see and hear with your own eyes and ears?

For those of you who still have an open mind, there are only 2 things you need to know about Trump to help you clearly see how dangerous Trump is for America:

  1. Most of Trump ‘s “very best people” that he hand picked, have either quit, been fired, been indicted for lying or worse, been convicted of a felony, or have been sentenced to prison. Trump ignored the vetting process and picked people of poor moral character with criminal tendencies on purpose. If most of those people are dirty, more than likely, Trump is dirty, and that’s bad for America. Trump isn’t even trying to hide any of his destabilizing behavior.

  2. Trump agreed with Putin over U.S. Intelligence agencies regarding Russian election meddling, was not enthusiastic about placing sanctions on Russia, just recently removed sanctions on Russia before Russia could be adequately dealt with, has bad mouthed U.S. Allies but not a negative word about Putin. Trump has met with Russian dignitaries and Putin several times without American’s present. One of those meetings was in the Oval Office where Trump discussed Top Secret Information. Even when an American translator was present, Trump won’t release the transcripts of what was discussed. Trump wants to break up NATO and the EU, is methodically removing American influence from the world stage, and is placing uncertainty in the U.S. economy by placing tariffs on other nations, and now has initiated a government shutdown. The government shutdown places millions of Americans under financial and physical stress. Some people may even die because they can’t afford healthcare or their medicine. These are all moves that Putin would approve of. Just watching Trump’s love affair with Putin, you really do begin to think that Trump could be a Russian asset.

Too many dots in the above sections are connected to Trump. Since the items in sections 1 and 2 are absolute facts, why would you want a President that would be involved in any of it. It’s time to get serious. I know Trump was elected because of government gridlock, and Americans did not want to elect a politician. We have seen enough, and the experiment is over. Trump in not going to pivot and become more Presidential and Congress is not performing their Constitutional oversight duties. This is a recipe for disaster for our country and indeed the world. If you care about Democracy, Freedom, and the Rule of Law, make sure you vote for anybody but Trump in 2020. God Bless America.
