Putin Slays Party of Reagan with Trumpism, but Revives Liberal Conservatism

“Men will not accept the truth at the hands of their enemies, and truth is seldom offered to them by friends.”~~Alexis De Tocqueville.
If ever there were a more exceptional, Siberian slake for vengeance against the Reagan Administration for ending the Cold War, Vladimir Putin’s reflexive control against the GOP is by far the coupe et d’état of the century. Russia’s high-level apparatchik and former KGB operative reminding the West, for him, the Cold War never ended by judiciously swaying conservative America into declaring war on herself. If this were a sub-plot in a John Le Carre novel, one could scrupulously say that the plot triumphs in Machiavellian virtuosity. Cue Le Mer to serenade the gullible, until a light bulb flickers above their pretty little heads.

Alt-right used the word, “liberal” in any sentence as a trigger like Pavlov’ dog conditioning clueless Americans to vilify the left as the root of all evil. In just one year, Putin’s popularity among GOP rose from 13% to 32%, prompting Trumpers to dump establishment principles for an ideal one state nationalist party, designed by White nationalists, KKK, anti-Semitism, and a New World Order, approved by Russia that removes liberal democracy. Putin’s plan elevated the most uneducated, inexperienced candidate to power, training the Republican Party to make ill-fated decisions for the country. The only narrative that made sense was deeming Hillary Clinton evil, and Trump the lesser of that evil. Not only did Putin’s PSYOP fruitfully undermine our election, but manipulated all four institutions of government to attack our democracy within its social body. Cable and print media supplied billions of free press to Trump and Putin’s fashioned conspiracies against Clinton, while hackers broke into the DNC, RNC, and DOD. With media distracted by Clinton’s emails, Russia used Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, and conspiracy theorists to spread false information to the naïve voter.

The fix was in.

The Kremlin’s majestic power plays owned the political chessboard and cracked the foundation of the party of Reagan. Now with Trump in office, the scandals of Russia hacking our government, undermining our election, and the possible collusion with Trump, simply leaves a sour taste one in one’s mouth. If Trump Campaign promised favors to Russia to win the election, it becomes the greatest criminal scandal in America’s lifetime. Democracy dies the darkness, yet there’s still Reagan’s shining city on a hill, a beacon out of this catastrophic nightmare.

Liberal Conservatism.

The marriage between conservative canon adjoined with liberal positions, particularly on fiscal and social issues, combined with the rejection of Trumpism, liberal conservative brings the country a bit closer together. Irish philosopher Edwin Burke, believed that fundamental principles cement Christian, moral natural law, yielding the power to judge whether government leaders use their power to achieve the greater good, or abuse the social order and its core values: the pursuit of happiness through the protection of life, liberty, and property. Burke’s philosophy centers around the human element, deriving from Christian beliefs, without enabling society to become dependent on its government.

Burke believed that “All government, indeed every human benefit and enjoyment, every virtue, and every prudent act, is founded on compromise and barter.” Congress no longer commits. Instead, it uses the legislative body as a weapon against its partisan neighbor to stay in power, crushing bipartisan achievement. A social body cannot function without cooperation. Supporting compassionate conservatives, and conservative Democrats don’t undermine America but maintain and improves upon its greater good. The ability to reach consensus is vital. Burke warns, “The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.”

Burke’s fear against liberal conservatism was a civil state of nature or self- sovereignty to a higher civil authority. Thomas Hobbes, alleged society ought to concede its duty to an unaccountable sovereign, much like Trump’s, and Putin’s desire for an autocracy society. Burke called it, “The fairyland of philosophy.” To paraphrase, Burke cautioned that hypothetical suppositions were meager locums for truths, invented corporeality in politics, or as George Orwell believed, “alternative facts.” It is perilously deceptive to demoralize reason just to force a floor-flushing dogma that only, doesn’t exist. If it truly did, duplicity wouldn’t be its result.

Because of Trump’s alt-right ideology, America is crueler, fouler, anti-Christian and far more suspicious of one another. Passing judgment on people based on their political affiliation is now considered standard practice. The failures of the GOP Congress enables and pledges servitude to Trumpism, in all its ugliness instead of exercising moral courage grounded in altruism, faith, and liberty.
French Philosopher, Alexis De Tocqueville, a compassionate conservative and one of the principal founders of liberal conservatism, loved freedom and believed progressivism births individualism, which flies in the face of the current populist movement. “America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, she ceases to be great.” De Tocqueville alleges that government, political groups, and its relationships cannot delineate from individual accountability. Tocqueville believed liberal society fails without shared, “dogmatic beliefs.”

“I avow that I do not hold that complete and instantaneous love for the freedom of the press that one accords to whose nature is unqualifiedly good. I love it out of consideration for the evils it prevents much more than the good it does.”

Both Burke and De Tocqueville argue reason maintains honest opinion. America needs the press to remain loyal only to the truth. Now that media sees daylight with the Trump Administration, pounding shoe leather to rebuild its soul. Trump spews a hundred lies in just 40 days, yet Alt-right conservatives were remaining silent, lacking any moral courage. A word of advice: Alt-right attacking center right just to mollify their culpability is like firing a bazooka to your reflection.

The right cannot subsist without the left. They are the yin-yang of American independence, and neither side is going anywhere. Imagine, every morning, a world refusing to punch itself in the face just by repudiating false equivalence and polarization. Exploiting political words for malevolent intent changes the political definition. What society entrusts is in its best interests, may not be. Capitalizing on that fog of uncertainty opens the door to chaos.

Putin doesn’t want friendship with the United States, but global extinction against the western culture of liberal democracy. By regaining its superpower title as an autocracy and the Trump Administration’s suspicious eagerness to lift Russian sanctions, Putin’s desire to restore the Soviet Union and recapture the Baltic States is within reach. Consider if media embarked on a cross-country trek visiting small town America, asking voters if they had the choice between a liberal or Russia running the country? What would pollsters discover? The odds favor voters would “choose Russia over any liberal.” Only took a year, a score for Putin.

Post World War II, Republican Senator Arthur Vandenberg of Michigan, believed foreign policy must remain a bipartisan effort. He coined the phrase that many Republicans now neglect. “In a word, it simply seeks national security ahead of partisan advantage. Politics stops at the water’s edge.” 

The only way the word, “liberal” survives the alt-right populism movement is through NeverTrump, and liberal conservatism.

A label change doesn’t decimate liberal conservative philosophy. Instead, it emboldens with the aptitude to expand the center simply by standing right to principles and common ideas, like encouraging Democrats to rebuild the Blue Dog Coalition from 1995. A populist message cannot withstand based on emotional rage, and a false ideology. Liberal conservatism doesn’t die because it’s rooted in theoretical principles and Christian moral law. The Golden Rule never changes. In the end, society functions for the greater good, based on the belief to do right by others.

As De Tocqueville writes, “Without shared ideas, there is no common action, and without common action, men still exist, but a social body does not. Thus in order that there be society, and all the more, that this society prosper, it is necessary that all the minds of citizens always be brought together and held together by some principle ideas.”

America must grow its roots. Replant seeds of common ideas in the local state house races, from the city council to senate. Reject hyper-partisanship, and connect with neighbors, so ideas flourish. If government representatives in social bodies abuse power, remove them. It doesn’t matter which party they belong. Neglecting the will of the majority to serve an ideology that harms and stands in the way of life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness, is not what the founding fathers intended. Elect someone that embodies principles that put the country before a political party. That’s patriotism and the bedrock of American kitchen table values.

Trump: Twitter Troll In Chief

On November 8, 2016, two Americas ideologically divided, maintained a vigil ready for victory. In Manhattan at the Hilton Hotel, men and women in a sea of red “Make America Great Again,” baseball caps swamped the ballroom floor. With their fingers crossed, the ballots from the states of Virginia, Florida, and North Carolina hadn’t appeared, a good sign for Trump. Meanwhile at the Javits Center, a chock-full of democrats and republicans also impatient, remained glued to their cell phones. According to pollsters, it was supposed to be a short night, but a fanfare event. Their candidate, Hillary Clinton, was on track to become the first female president of the United States. But in a shocking twist that only writers in Hollywood (myself included) could envision, the heartbreaking drama sluggishly unfolded as 40 million people witnessed a cataclysmic-jaw-dropping moment. Raucous Trump supporters cheered while Clinton’s advisor John Podesta addressed a somber crowd. Tears overflowed, minds swept in fear, all too consuming. Trump’s win is one of the most nail-biting upsets in American history. For 24 hours I shut off the TV and social media to meditate and pray on what just occurred. I became physically ill grasping the fucking nightmare within my view.

Donald J Trump is the President-Elect of the United States.

In the fog of war, lucidity ensues, alongside punishing mockery. Clinton didn’t have the support of 6.6 million Democrats. Millennials rejected Clinton’s vision. They didn’t like her. They wanted Bernie Sanders and change from the establishment. Call it reprisal on Clinton or just plain ignorance. Had just one out of 100 voted, Clinton would’ve won, and Obama’s legacy would endure. How does one define stupidity, look left! A party that screws over themselves then takes to the streets protesting an election they had in the bag. Clinton won the popular vote near a whopping 52-53% giving her 2 million more votes than Trump. So Democrats are protesting across the country {including my daughter} in hopes of changing the election. Geezus liberals suck it up and grow up. Get your shit together, put down your selfies and get out of your E! Entertainment bubble.

I get the fear and the panic.

In fairness to protestors, I recall our side delegitimizing Obama with taunting names like, “Barak HUSSEIN Obama. Osama is a terrorist, a Muslim, not my president.” Hate crimes rose past 50 percent. The White nationalist movement grew. “He’s from Kenya,” they’d shout. “He’s not even American.” “Where’s his Birth Certificate?” Now it’s even stronger. KKK is hosting a parade to celebrate President Trump. You know the same one with David Duke? And people wonder why Trump took North Carolina. Not hard to figure out. http://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/nation-world/national/article113964838.html

Attacking property as a way of venting only creates a darker atmosphere for a young person’s future—yours behind bars. My family has had three deputy sheriffs and one sheriff. In situations like this, community policing is important. Punch a gym bag. Don’t waste your future on Trump by sinking to his level. Utilize your mind. Empower, educate, stay motivated, not complacent. Trump’s Administration isn’t the end of the world, its four years—a college degree. The balance of power always shifts in the hands of the people. Voice your concerns but challenge your representatives instead of tearing up your community.

Rage isn’t a plan.

This outcome couldn’t have worked out better for the ambitious senator from Vermont and his self-centered Bernie bots. They wanted Clinton to lose now they got Trump. Bernie Sanders is already floating his name for 2020. Surprise, surprise. The man will be 83. My sympathies are as hollow as the tiny Stradivarius between my fingers.

Then it dawned on me.

Across the country, for the first time in decades, a majority unified in their mutual repulsion for Donald Trump. A taciturn paradox emerges in this tale of woe. Republicans, Democrats, and independents are in tri-partisan agreement. We fear a Trump presidency. Now we got one.http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-putin-trump-idUSKBN1352J9

So, how did this happen?

America chose the lesser of two evils in this House of Cards drama. After giving Trump over 2.2 billion of free advertisement, and using false equivalence instead of sticking to facts, greedy ratings-driven media witnessed their greatest failure. The data collapsed. Their polling was wrong. Echoed by conservative blogosphere, they hammered the long winded passive aggressive narrative that Clinton, a DC politician {like so many} was untrustworthy over and over and over on 24-hour news cycles. Democrats greatest failure was a DC Wall Street established career politician.

Clinton.

Marred by years of personal baggage, and endless scandals with her email server, Clinton didn’t expect FBI Director Comey’s October surprise letter to Congress. The FBI was investigating Clinton’s emails again, this time on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. This false development arguably nailed Clinton’s coffin. Russia’s Wikileaks agenda was simple: get Trump elected. Clinton’s arrogance made it all too easy. Media smugly delivered the world a “normalized, racist Archie Bunker.” The American people took it to heart and never looked back.

“I’m tired of politicians cutting my pay, making promises they don’t keep, and Trump is my finger to Washington,”

Clinton’s arrogance and self-entitlement soured the middle working class years ago. The forgotten blue-collar working man left identity politics for Trump’s message. My brother Mark age 43, lives in Dearborn Heights, Michigan. His one true passions are fishing and the Chicago Cubs. He left sunny Vegas three years ago to find union work in midwest snow. It didn’t last and frustration grew. He said, “It’s not personal, I just want to see if this works. I’m tired of politicians cutting my pay, making promises they don’t keep, and Trump is my finger to Washington,” he said in between drags of his cigarette. “The damn liberals are always screaming, ‘what more can I get’ well what about me? They can wait their turn this time. And if Trump is just like the rest of them, then I’ll vote for someone to kick his ass back to his gold tower in New York.”

For the first time, I truly listened to my brother. He kept his silence on whom he planned to support. He didn’t want my mother, a lifelong Democrat, have a stroke. He didn’t want the family ragging on him for electing a misogynist prick or people call him a racist. He says, “I’m not any of that, and I know some sick people are backing him. But their reasons are about them. My reasons are about me, and what I want. What I need.”

But will he get the results he wants? So far it doesn’t appear to be.https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/moscow-had-contacts-with-trump-team-during-campaign-russian-diplomat-says/2016/11/10/28fb82fa-a73d-11e6-9bd6-184ab22d218e_story.html

Conservatives can breathe a sigh of relief. Clinton is gone, but they’re still bitching. I’m not one to rejoice in someone’s defeat. Christian life teaches us to inspire grace. Clinton did that in her concession speech. She is no longer responsible for what happens in DC or the Trump era. Because of the dysfunctional Congress and never ending gridlock, identity politics instead of bread and butter issues, Republicans and Democrats own Trump, so, like my brother said, it’s a mutual punishment for two self-serving ideologies.

Therefore I lie in wait to see if every person of caliber and intellect in the #Nevertrump group and closed mouthed Republicans will backslide on their principles now that Trump is elected. As expected, their partisan slavery addiction proves my brother’s point. After everything said, the desire on the right to give Trump a “clean slate” is equivalent of granting him a blank check. Trump isn’t going to fall in line with conservative ideology. He’s only had an R by hs name since Obama’s time in office. Now that it’s all coming to an end, Trump’s long filled desire of receiving respect from the man he accused of being not an American, clearly demonstrates Trump’s narcissism. His first 100 days will bring lots of uncertainty to millions of Americans. The Wall, Iran Deal, Obamacare, and a special Clinton prosecutor. Scratch that. Fickle Trump now says, No wall, nay on the Iran Deal, and now, Obamacare is remaining, for now. Oh, and let’s not forget Clinton, “lock her up?” Scratch that. Now after one meeting, Obama is a “very good man,” and on Sunday’s 60 Minutes, Trump says Hillary Clinton’ is, “very strong, and very smart.”http://www.businessinsider.com/trump-60-minutes-interview-hillary-clinton-strong-smart-2016-11

the desire  on the right to give Trump a “clean slate” is equivalent of granting him a blank check.

The Republicans nominated a Democrat with an ‘R’ by his name. Many saw it coming but perhaps God is teaching everyone a lesson on hypocrisy? I’ve yet to hear anyone in conservative media they’ll check Trump. For many Americans, it will be a deciding factor in 2018 and 2020. Maybe that’s God’s plan for this insane reality. Expose endless hypocrisy that takes us to the brink of hell because neither side falls on their sword. Therefore I’ll ask the question: Will Congress exercise caution with a Trump presidency? Better yet, will conservative media act raise their arm up and obey? In the last 48 hours Trump’s desire for radical change raises eyebrows. On his website, Trump’s call to ban all Muslims from entering the United States remains to leave a person wondering, “Am I still in America?”

After nineteen calls and texts from longtime friends who voted for Trump, and Clinton, my heart wept and prayed for strength and wisdom for friends, family, and this presidency. We are all in the same boat like the Titanic with a drunken captain approaching an iceberg. Friends feared that my distaste for Trump would sour our relationships. I had to reassure them, which meant, endurance. I listened to their fears, concerns, their anger, and their optimism. Elections are about individual freedoms and the pursuit of happiness.

Not everyone will agree on this new frontier. My children are bitterly divided over Trump. One is expecting “a great America” the other is terrified that her identity isn’t part of Trump’s America. She fears Trump supporters will target her out of hate. At first, I found that to be ridiculous until I read this.http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/news/2016/11/10/white-supremacists-urge-trolling-clinton-supporters-suicide/93617792/

Steve Bannon, the anti-Semite of Breitbart tied to Alt Right Europe as Chief of Staff scares the shit out of me.

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2016/11/breitbarts-steve-bannon-might-be-trumps-chief-of-staff.html Sheriff David Clarke, a barn burning alt right pundit, believes that Black Lives Matter aligns with ISIS. He wants to be the head of Dept. of Homeland Security.http://www.ibtimes.com/donald-trump-cabinet-anti-black-lives-matter-sheriff-david-clarke-eyed-department-2444808

Shit just got real.

Rudy Giuliani wants to be Attorney General after leaking classified information from the FBI office in NY to Fox News about Russia, and boasting Clinton’s downfall with a hard erecting desire in wanting to throw her in jail?https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/11/10/rudy-giuliani-just-used-cnn-to-campaign-for-attorney-general/ And what about “draining the swamp,” getting big money out of politics? Was that a lie too? It appears Trump’s entire transition team is nothing but classic DC K-Street lobbying cronyism.http://www.cnn.com/2016/11/10/politics/donald-trump-transition-drain-the-swamp/ The lies come in whiffs like wet fertilizer permeating in 90-degree heat. Reeks. Here, is where America dances blindfold on a razor’s edge. What pre-tell happens next in a reality saga that only Donald Trump could design?

Recall when I said shit just got real?

http://bigstory.ap.org/295849a11d584a71bc512bba26c551eaVladimir Putin’s top advisor’s now boasting of their mutual foreign policy agreement with the Trump Administration. “Let’s break NATO!” Now that Russia played the principal role in electing Trump they’re calling in their favor, like the Russian Bratva. Putin is a threat to our national security, a reality that hardly anyone in media cares to discuss except how many votes Clinton lost. Priorities gentlemen, please focus? Clinton is gone! It’s like media is obsessed with Clinton giving them endless clickbait. Media focus on your job. Russia wants to break NATO and take back the Baltic States. If that happens, the EU shatters and Putin succeeds in rebuilding the Soviet Union. Trump’s unpredictability and inability to be truthful with the American people makes him a wild card.https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/796900183955095552

But not everything is gloomy. Any day now my son becomes a father to a precious little girl. So with that, I pray for little Alison to grow in a world that accepts her for who she is and pray she’s not used as a symbol to attack. I pray the world admires her passionate, human frailties, not demean them, and that she becomes a healthy, spirited and talented young lady. An innocent child needs love and compassion. Reassurance that everything is going to be okay. All they know is that the man that calls them anchor babies, possible terrorists and dismisses them as a disease, is now President of the United States. I’m heedful and reminded of terrified children torn from their families, required to hide their religion. Fear seen through innocent eyes is the learning curve. Especially from this terrified little girl.

“In the evenings when it’s dark I often see long lines of good, innocent people, accompanied by crying children, walking on and on, ordered about by a handful of men who bully and beat them until they nearly drop. No one is spared. The sick, the elderly, children, babies and pregnant women – all are marched to their death. (…) I feel wicked sleeping in a warm bed, while somewhere out there my dearest friends are dropping from exhaustion or being knocked to the ground. I get frightened myself when I think of close friends who are now at the mercy of the cruelest monsters ever to stalk the earth. And all because they’re Jews.” AF.http://www.annefrankguide.net/en-US/bronnenbank.asp?aid=26270

When America acts against her best interests, America inherits a country she deserves. Bloggers in the #Nevertrump movement, please stay sober. Trump may be our president, but if he abuses our three branches of government with Congress aiding him, our allegiance is to the flag of the United States of America. And our loyalty is to the Republic for which it stands one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Trump’s America: Welcome To The Apocalypse

[Ed note: I wrote most of this about six weeks ago.]

Remember when the cruelest thing Hillary Clinton could say was “baskets of Deplorables?” Fast forward to now and Trump’s emboldened Alt Right campaign living with sewer rats and cockroaches while the rest of us await their potential violent meltdown on election day. Trump wants a revolution should he not win the Presidential Election. He’s already indirectly threatened Clinton’s life twice now screams a “rigged election,” to deflect from his sagging poll numbers. My goodness. The damage Trump inflicts to a country in just one month is astonishing. After seeing so much hate from Trump’s “deplorables,” you’d think they’d feel shame associating with white nationalists and Anti-Semites. Newsflash: They’re not and neither is Congress.

In the year of 2016, satan himself plopped in the middle of Mother Earth, dragging his bony finger across America. In The Usual Suspects, Kevin Spacey’s Machiavellian character says one of the greatest movie quotes of all time. “The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.” In today’s political climate, Satan’s desire is creating chaos. Gov. Jeb Bush calls Donald Trump, “the chaos candidate.

In Proverbs 28:2 says,

2. When the country is in chaos, everybody has the plan to fix it-but it takes a leader of real understanding to straighten things out.

Scripture educates Christians that chaos is the sign of satan’s evil handiwork. Visit social media {especially Twitter} and you’ll find a white supremacist movement storming through this election. They unapologetically support Donald Trump without shame and broadcast racist views including, “using the ovens again,” or Jewish journalist’s photos used as bulls-eye targets. Although I’m not Jewish, Alt right still harasses me and other #nevertrump-ers daily. They’re a band of smug-faced Pepe frog trolls, adorn in Adolf Hitler-type memes, and flaunting grotesque pictures of dead people with effigy’s side by side next to the Dixie battle flag, and exhibit a cold steel arrogance like movie serial killers. Their goal is to convince educated white America “they’re not racist that’s just the liberal media-wink wink,” talk.

It almost worked. Until now.

I don’t know what’s more depressing for the human race. The fact that only Hillary Clinton has the balls to call out the Alt. Right’s #BasketOfDeplorables [I prefer #BasketofTeahadists, but that’s me.] or that GOP leaders in Congress who once claimed to care about our country and values, refuse to check Donald Trump? Their refusal emboldens Alt-Right movement to double down on hate, and dish out Russian propaganda much like the Birther cause. It is one thing to play politics, but this hate is continuously spoon-fed to an angry electorate, motivating a dangerous populist movement with the potential to destroy the core foundation of our democracy. Congress refuses to stand up to Donald Trump. So, what makes people believe that anything will ever get done if he were to win?

satan doesn’t want chaos to evaporate; he wants Americans dizzy and off-balance,, angrily feeding a malignant mass like Trump. His incessant, temper-tantrums and bombast vitriol carries long-term consequences. All it takes is one offensive tweet to start World War Three. Forget any discussion with our allies, a thin-skinned, unstable lunatic plans to shoot first, while snorting his way through the election.

Yeah, I went there.

Long-time conservatives continue to defend Trump and the same anti-Semites dogging them on social media [forcing Jewish journalists, and DC insiders to display brackets ((())) around their names] and attacking media regularly at Trump rallies. Some reporters now need police escorts; others get caught in Trump’s verbally abusive cross-hairs.

What fucking universe do I live in when normalizing racism like Jim Crow is about making America great Again?

Worse, Mike Pence, the so-called “I’m a Christian First,” defended these disgraceful people. Reality. They’re not going away. It’s about to get worse.

[Ed note:Trump’s longtime sexual predatorial attacks on women also went viral. First, he body shamed Alicia Machado, the former, Miss Universe, calling her fat, Miss Piggy, Miss Housekeeping, and refused to back down verbally harassing her, media and Clinton i a tweet storm at 3 am. His poll numbers tumbled. Not too soon after did an Access Hollywood Tape surface from 2005, revealing a smug, lascivious Trump, boasting to Billy Bush about sexually assaulting women. The world stopped as women watched in horror, unable to believe Trump could be so vicious. Others chalked it up to “locker room talk.” Women knew better. Especially sexual assault survivors.]

Here’s my best Golden Girls impersonation.

Picture it: Las Vegas, 2016. I’m in bed resting my aching back, as John F Hinckley Jr, is released from the mental institution after 35 years, for trying to kill President Reagan. Think about it. Hinkley is out, and Trump surrogates are so, fucking addicted to a faux plastic elephant, they choose a tarnished party over our Lord Jesus in order to win the White House and maintain power, by normalizing Donald Trump, a sadistic, thieving, conniving, misogynist, racist, narcissist.

Frightening.

What are conservatives excuses?

To Protect U.S. Supreme Court? Stop Abortion? Conservative values?

What a fucking lie. That’s not the reason.

Aside from being members of a fractured GOP that succumb like crack addicts, it’s all about misogyny, baby. Temperament, tone, and that Archie Bunker fear that men will become subservient to a woman president who’s not Edith in the kitchen, Lucy changing the sheets on the twin beds, Or I dream of Jeannie serving her master in a bottle. Scratched my head a few times as I listened to the some #nevertrump crusaders [who bashed Trump for the same reasons I did] do an 180 flip on the television and social media. All that mattered was forcing Hillary into defending the same comments that they used a hundred times justifying their reason for not supporting Trump.

So what is their excuse now?

Hillary “insulted millions of Trump supporters because she said HALF.”

Then the narrative changed within the hour after she clarified but doubled down on her comments. Then it became, “Hillary insulted “millions” of Trump supporters, hard working, decent people,” “how shameful,” “I think this will cost her…” Okay, let’s back up before we get lost in the weeds. Here is what she truly said. Two Groups. Two baskets, yet on social media I spent 8 hours having to debate with streamlined conservatives bragging that she will have to apologize for her “deplorable comments.”

No, she doesn’t. Why would any leader kowtow to a hate group? [ed note: about 1/2 the GOP just for false equivalence. Sickening.] Examine the statistics. Hillary is far too generous in her words. #BasketOfDeplorables riles Alt right, and center right defends them. That rated G phrase, passive and truthful compared to the shit Trump has stated over and over. Who in their right mind believes manipulating an electorate into feeling that Hillary Clinton personally abused THEM by lumping THEM in with the KKK, David Duke, 8 Chan, Anti-Semites, Alt. Right white nationalists, screaming, “go back to Africa, and “we are not racist we just hate Jews is defensible?” Over 35% of the GOP believe President Obama was born in Kenya.

Who’s FAULT IS THAT?

Teahadist conservative Media. They fed this unconscionable beast raw, bloody carcasses, devouring till the next dripping headline. “Lock that bitch up,” “kill her,” “shoot her,” “Fuck Hillary,” “Fuck Mexicans, Build my wall motherfucker!” Ladies and Gentlemen, these are the hard, decent working people Mike Pence, and Paul Ryan defended, and said, “shame on her.”

I say shame on you.

The people who vote for Freedom Caucus, Michelle Bachmann, Louie Gohmert, who had the audacity to convince Gregg Abbott the Governor of Texas, that Jade Helm was a Government take over by Obama, and the tunnels under Walmart existed, are the representatives of that group are the brains and surrogates of Trump. Harsh? I don’t give a shit. These are the same people who trashed John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina, and Jeb Bush.

Apparently the only angry electorate media wants to legitimize is Bernie supporters [Like Ed Schultz who now is on Russian TV] and Alt. Right. They want to kill the center and force us to accept the broken system. I once mentioned to David Gergen and other journalists, “the lesser of two evils is what Americans are tired of receiving.”

To break that self-destructive cycle, we’ve got to break our addiction, right?

Wrong..media says…

INSTANT REPLAY of 2012!

The Polls Polls Polls are tightening. Why is Hillary Clinton doing so bad in the polls? Her email scandal? [Ed note: Hillary has a double-digit lead and now the pollsters shout “this race is over, well, it was over by the end of August, not even close, but now it’s just collapsing,…SMDH Let us not forget, Independent Evan McMullin is now dead even in the state of Utah with Trump and Clinton ]

here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/hillary-clinton-battleground-state-polls_us_58053c1ce4b0dd54ce3498d6

Yes, let’s not report on the dozens of scandals Donald Trump creates in one day, there’s far too many for the time they have! [Except for Daniel Dale of the Toronto Star. The most amount of lies Trump said in one day is 25 and counting.

https://www.thestar.com/news/world/2016/10/17/new-record-donald-trump-said-25-false-things-on-saturday.html 

Let’s not report on the REAL #paytoplay scandal in Florida where the Tampa Bay Times called for an independent investigation against Pam Bondi and Donald Trump using his foundation to pay her campaign 25k because that makes Hillary look good. Can’t have that need a dead heat. Gov. Rick Scott, a Trump Supporter, won’ bring up an investigation gee wonder why? Oh because it’s not about the voters, only Democrats break the law. You know what’s sad? I bought into that “liberal media” bullshit and how conservatives used this conditioning on liberals. Alt. Right, can’t use it on center-right because we’re not liberals., We feel it. We get it, and see the game and got no problem calling out conservative media for betraying us, the angry center right.

[Ed. Note Currently AG Schneidermann of NY is investing Trump Foundation charities in place of Bondi Scandal and the wrong doings in NY. Trump STILL has not released his tax returns either]  http://www.politico.com/story/2016/09/new-york-attorney-general-opens-inquiry-into-trump-foundation-228125]

At the Commander in Chief Forum, on the Intrepid, Matt Lauer at the request of his buddy, Andrew Lack was chosen over educated journalists, to throw fastballs at the more experienced woman candidate. This gave Trump an edge while praising Vladamir Putin, and trashing our Generals. I tend to think Ann Curry who watched her former colleague, “Lauering the bar” smiled. Andrea Mitchell, David Ignatius of the Washington Post, or Richard Engel, their NBC foreign correspondent, would’ve done a better job. Andrew Lack used Lauer for a reason, and it wasn’t for substance because Trump has zero. It was to even the playing field and lower Clinton’s poll numbers. [Ed note: It worked. The second debate, however, Clinton rebounded as Trump just continued burying himself with a shovel.] Lack praised Lauer after scathing reviews. Score for Ann Curry against sexists.

That good o’l Boys Club in media, television, Hollywood, and just about every place in business still exists. With a Trump presidency, it’ll be ten times worse.

Think of the Trump surrogates running his campaign. All they do daily is say, “no he didn’t say that what he really meant was…”

Roger Ailes claims he’s just a “silent adviser” but insiders close to him and Fox assure, “he’s advising Trump, they’re friends.” Okay, the same Roger Ailes who sexually harassed, stalked, bugged offices and preyed upon women, is encouraging Trump. Mainstream media says nothing.http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2016/09/how-fox-news-women-took-down-roger-ailes.html Call it “allegedly sexually harassed women like Bill Cosby,” in spite of a 20 million-dollar payout to Gretchen Carlson. I call it hush money, but media will parrot, “move along nothing to see here!” Like a dirty little secret, media protects, praises, coddles Ailes and treats him like a god heaping accolades on him for creating Fox News.

Disgusting.

[Ed Note: The Trump sexual assault allegations, surfaced after Debate 2. Trump paraded Bill Clinton’s accusers like trained poodles without the grace or dignity to admonish Trump. Nope, they wanted to go up on that debate stage and shake Bill Clinton’s hand. In my lifetime never…ever would I consider shaking my assailant’s hand. Real victims do not endorse sexual predators for the highest office. Real victims shake, throw up for days after being forced to relive their traumas when key trigger words repeat over and over again. It’s difficult believing any victim to praise a self-admitting sexual predator. EVER.]

Ailes treated women like cattle, creating the leg chair to get a look, gawked to see if his female reporters wore underwear on a trampoline, threatened, had them get on their knees to “beg” proclaiming how powerful he was. These allegations go all the way back to the Mike Douglas Show. So, spare me, the righteous indignation where media gasps, “we didn’t know.” Bullshit. Yes. You did.

NBC’s Katy Tur is harassed on the campaign trail repeatedly by Trump and his supporters on social media just for asking questions.

http://www.marieclaire.com/politics/a21997/donald-trump-katy-tur/

When she does her job, Trump bans her; calls her a Hillary supporter, much like anyone that doesn’t stand up and cheer for Trump. Megyn Kelly asked Trump during the Fox primary debate to answer questions about his comments regarding women. With her blonde hair extensions draped over a shoulder, and gazing into the camera, she waited for his response. The non-politically correct, thin-skinned bully quipped, trashing women on live TV then went to Twitter on a weekend binge ranting and raving about Kelly. For months. But then there was her legendary “sigh” that said it all in this Dylan Byer’s article.

http://money.cnn.com/2016/08/02/media/megyn-kelly-sigh/

Working on the strip I’ve had unfortunate  experiences of sexual harassment in Las Vegas, and was sexually assaulted while on a business trip in New York. {Rudy’s city after 911 in 2002} Every day I thank God I am alive. My assailant’s {there were two} [assumed I was 19. I was 31] and tried kidnapping me from my Manhattan Hotel. Their set up was simple. Find new marks, young, and naive and get them off hotel property. A worldly, Albanian “limousine owner”, strolls into the hotel lobby, boasting about how much money he had to my friend and a gentleman producer from Universal that we had just met in the lounge. If it weren’t for him, I’d probably wouldn’t be alive today.

With his young wife in tow, dressed like she was going to the movies, {She had to be no more than 16] the limo owner did all the talking. She never spoke a word. He bragged about all the people he knew in the music business, and a Russian club owner who “knew people.” He said I was beautiful, [he wanted to make me a star, a model, singer whatever.] and that a security guard from my hotel would vouch that he was “trustworthy.” Two hours later, after being drugged, ordered to have sex with his wife while he watched with a client, and trapped alone in a limo somewhere near Flushing, I learned the hard way. Don’t trust anyone. They were sex traffickers. So when I hear the words, “Trust me,” come out of Donald Trump’s mouth, I don’t. When men say, “When you’re a star they let you do anything you want,” that is true, and it means powerless women in the industry, or want to be a part of it are marked without even knowing it.

The Boys Club exists.

Especially here in Las Vegas.

“You can’t be single, how old are you again,” asked the male executive. He assumed that I was young, naive until I opened my mouth. I made a mistake replying “yes” and asking if he knew any single execs to meet, to which the married mogul responded sneering with his upper lip twitching, “You’re looking at him.” Disgusted, I brushed it off and steered the conversation toward his wife and grandchildren. Another time at a different casino, when I was 25 and back from maternity leave, this executive still in a position of power, married, I’ll never forget what he said. Ogling my chest, he grinned, “I bet the baby is having a good time.” It went completely over my head. I replied, ” Yes, I’m having a good time. I just can’t get enough of her. She’s so beautiful.” He continued staring at my chest. “You’re breastfeeding?” I said, “Uh, yes best for the baby.” He finally said with a wink, “I bet your husband is having a good time.” Shaken, I reported it to my manager who was under him in authority. She urged me to “let it go because of who he was and that I must’ve misunderstood.” In truth, that’s all women do is “let it go,” “toughen up,” and “Smile like you mean it.”

And FTR: Both of these execs are voting for Trump.

This article left my knees buckling. Please read it here. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/in-secretive-marijuana-industry-whispers-of-abuse_us_57cefd7ee4b0f831f705be3f  Marijuana growers in California are trafficking women and young teens, recruiting them as “trimmers” to use them for business and sexual advances. If they deny their employers, they rape, sexually assault, and prostitute them out to lonely men. That mentality, fueled by media pumping Trump creates a toxic vacuum every time they refuse to call out the candidate or his supporters for their sexist, misogynist remarks. Women shouldn’t fear reporting their manipulative bosses using their employment for sexual favors. Some are kidnapped, blackmailed, stalked, beaten and raped. Traffickers abuse and shame their victims. They lock women and children in boxes with man made air holes.

It’s just as offensive for million-dollar executives or high profiled celebrities to use women as play things then blackmail them to advance their careers-case in point, Roger Ailes. With a megalomaniac like Trump at the top of the ticket, women don’t stand a chance. When Rudy Giuliani trashes Hillary to the point that she isn’t even a human being over an email scandal, claiming he’s a federal prosecutor yet goes to the mat for Roger Ailes, a sexual predator, and Trump, leads me to realize, Rudy would defend my assailants without question. I’ve got serious doubts just how “honorable is America’s Mayor.” Hell, he tried evicting his wife Donna Hanover from her home in Gracie Mansion to move in his mistress. Not your model husband by any means, and no character.

But let’s go to another subject that’s irritating me.

Christians for Trump because Hillary is the Anti-Christ.

[Ed. Note Again, I wrote this six weeks ago, but now with Jerry Falwell’s comments at Liberty University and religious right supporting a sexual predator openly, the Lord is indeed exposing hypocrites.] http://www.politico.com/story/2016/10/jerry-falwell-donald-trump-liberty-229964 Oh and this one too: http://therightscoop.com/pathetic-jerry-falwell-jr-says-hed-vote-trump-even-sexually-harassed-women/

It’s the same argument they used in defining President Obama. He is the anti-Christ, a Muslim, the devil. He’s out to get us, destroy our values, blah blah blah. I about died seeing Billy Graham’s son on Morning Joe in 2010 call the President a Muslim as if he weren’t even human. Graham as recently as 2015 still keeps the Birther crap alive http://www.rightwingwatch.org/post/franklin-graham-says-that-obamas-mother-must-have-been-a-muslim/   satan is using religion to manipulate people into hating others. This is not Christian. It’s Lucifer’s handiwork, and for the past six months are so-called “Christian Right” claiming absolution, preaching from the pulpit who’s evil and who’s not. Tony Perkins with a straight face stating Donald Trump is a Christian and more Christ-like than Hillary who’s a practicing Methodist?

Evil.

To Mike the “Huckster” Huckabee. Pedophiles are sick people. http://www.businessinsider.com/another-mike-huckabee-associate-was-just-hit-with-a-molestation-scandal-2015-6  They need help, to pretend that they’re not to save your reputation with Christian Coalition. It means that you’ve sold out like Jim Bakker, Falwell, and the Lord will come after you. To Pastor Mark Burns screaming like hell on fire at the RNC Convention, a place where so many “praised him as such a passionate evangelical, a man of God,” that charlatan screamed at a female journalist over his hateful “blackface” cartoon of Hillary Clinton.

Then blamed it on Hillary.

Got that? When MSNBC’s Kristen Welker Challenged Burns on his comments http://www.rawstory.com/2016/08/watch-black-trump-surrogate-mark-burns-goes-ballistic-defending-clinton-blackface-cartoon-on-msnbc/  he went off on her like an abusive spouse screaming at the top of his lungs. When CNN fact checked Burns’s biography and questioned him, he walked off the set.  http://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2016/09/03/pastor-mark-burns-victor-blackwell-bts-ac.cnn 

I taught Religious Education for RCIA,{Rite Initiative for Christian Adults} and Lectionary for Catholics. A steward of the Lord speaks HIS WORD. Provide insight and guidance to those who ask in want and need. A Catholic helps others who cannot help themselves. Many of us take this seriously. However, some religious Christians in politics, in my honest opinion, do not. They watch Donald Trump trash our Holy Father Francis, a Good Man that asks every human being he comes in contact with to pray for him.

{http://www.politico.com/story/2016/02/full-text-donald-trump-responds-to-pope-francis-219435}

A steward of God remembers The Lord does not speak to everyone in the same manner. God loves each and every one of us. Donald Trump is a human being with a lost soul, and people with lost souls cannot provide guidance or compassion to others let alone the world because your focus is always you. Period. A man who claims he’s Christian but doesn’t read the Bible nor practice the Lord’s teachings or follow the ten commandments allows their actions to reveal a simple truth. Bullying the innocent, weak, the physically challenged, and the oppressed, to feel validation isn’t a rational human being. They’re a black hole. A morally bankrupt person never admits wrongdoing for their sins just persecutes everyone else, and enjoys doing so. Trump gets off on inhumanely hurting people, and projects that malicious, deplorable behavior onto others. The phrase, to be “non-politically correct is a license to be an asshole, to be openly racist, not apologize for offending, or hating someone because of their religion, race, sexual orientation, party affiliation, and class ranking.

That’s not Christ’s teachings. That’s not who we are as a nation, nor as a society.

The Trump rally videos are revolting. Its reminiscent of the 60’s and 70’s seeing men, women and children bullied over their skin color, the way they eat, their culture, and their orientation. The dog whistle Trump provides, “Some used to be carried out on a stretcher.” Yes black protestors during civil rights movement did. {http://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2016/03/12/donald-trump-rallies-violence-protests-mashup-lv.cnn}

Insecure, inferior people hate change. The Hispanic demographics are rapidly altering future elections. http://www.pewhispanic.org/2016/01/19/looking-forward-to-2016-the-changing-latino-electorate/  It’s not smart trashing Hispanics who are becoming the majority electorate of the United States. That’s a fact and trying to build a wall to keep them out isn’t going to work. Creating Concentration camps to punish those “against Trump,” yeah that’s not going to work either.

A horse race means interest, larger ratings, and a possible upset. I implore my followers to please, don’t allow media to manipulate your vote with the old playbook. What we see is the fucking bottom of a cracked rain barrel. Trump will turn the WH into a pathetic reality show. Back to the Future Creator Bob Zemeckis’ villain, Biff Tannen’s based on Donald Trump. Recall the desolate Hill Valley sign on the ground, litter in the streets, with casino neon all ablaze:? Atlantic City and the Taj Mahal.

Look at the Taj now?

http://time.com/4525067/trump-taj-mahal-close

The Japanese Internment camps from World War II that President Reagan rightfully apologized for was Roosevelt’s grossest black stain on his presidency. Our government treated Japanese Americans like terrorists. We’re only months [ed. Note: 19 days away] from repeating that dark time in our history. Who would’ve thought conservatives would turn into communist lovers praising Trump who praised Vladamir Putin? http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2016/09/10/trumps_praise_for_putin_galls_both_parties.html

Putin is just so great oppressing the people of Russia, with that 82% approval rating, right? Let’s talk numbers. Hillary Clinton is still leading Donald Trump in the latest ABC/WashingtonPost poll. It is the first snapshot after Labor Day and not good news for the Trump Campaign. 60% of women feel Donald Trump has a bias against women and minorities. We covered why his misogyny camp doubles down on it. With that crushing number, Trump is losing in every poll, but enthusiasm gap is up by 12.

[Ed. Note: 6 weeks later Clinton now has a commanding lead and now is only 3 points behind Trump in Texas. She’s up 2 in AZ, and behind 1 in Alaska.]

Romney enthusiasm was up in 2012.

The sad truth is if you changed Trump’s name to David Duke, cowardly establishment Republicans like Mike Pence, Speaker Ryan, and others would still do the same thing. God is going to test this theory with this meme that Alt. Right surrogate Roger Stone, Donald Trump Jr, and David Duke himself tweeted. Can’t be a coincidence, right? There’s unequivocally no courage, nor leadership because all they want is a majority of crazy racist uncles in the Congress. Christ’s teachings mean nothing. God plays an active role in this election. Every time a Trump surrogate defends the indefensible, doubling down on evil, the good Lord punishes their hypocrisy. I post Matthew 23:28 more than ten times a day on Twitter in an attempt to remind conservatives, those who choose party over Christ will pay the price.

[Ed. Note: Trump’s Access Hollywood Tape. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-recorded-having-extremely-lewd-conversation-about-women-in-2005/2016/10/07/3b9ce776-8cb4-11e6-bf8a-3d26847eeed4_story.html ]

The Donald Trump accusers:

http://nymag.com/thecut/2016/10/all-the-women-accusing-trump-of-rape-sexual-assault.html

They never listen.

Matthew 23: 28

28 In the same way, on the outside, you appear to people as righteous but on the inside, you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.

Let’s examine.

Many politicians and Donald Trump surrogates preach his rhetoric trying to appear, righteous? Such as Pastor Scott, Pastor Mark Burns, Rudy Guiliani, Steve Cortes, Mike Pence, even Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard, who not only is against Trump but today, implied 911 responders were in the “deplorable” group to bash Hillary Clinton.

Trump even went on Russian Television to prove his Brokeback love for Vladamir Putin. Here is Kellyanne Conway, the former campaign advisor to Ted Cruz, who bashed the “deplorable” [sounds like a movie title huh? Good going Hill.] as “skeevy and nasty,” is now taking the hypocrite road of shame bashing the female Democrat for doing the same thing, and defending her candidate for bashing the United States on Russian propaganda here in the US.

But we are the Conservative, national security, party, right? Right?

Not anymore.

The party our parents held in high esteem no longer exists. Ronald Reagan’s legacy doesn’t even matter anymore on Capitol Hill. If it did, Congress never would’ve smeared Jim Brady and the Brady Bill after he put his life on the line to save our 40th President of the United States.

As I watched Hinckley dazed and confused, I thought back to how insane and misguided he truly was. To get Jodie Foster, a lesbian’s attention, tried to kill the President of the United States. How stupid and foolish does he feel knowing this now? Then I think of how Capitol Hill treats disabled Americans like myself by supporting their nominee to keep their jobs. So it’s all about THEM. Not about saving the US Supreme Court, because they sold their conservative principles for the Alt.Right Greed Machine, defending that tarnished, plastic elephant, while trophy hunters kill off the real species for good.

The Grand Ol Party is dead. We cannot even trust conservative journalists to keep candidates honest, or debunk pseudo-journalists like Sean Hannity or Matt Drudge who’s only famous because of Michael Isikoff pawned the Monica Lewinsky scandal off to him. Drudge isn’t news, its a fake propaganda machine filled with made up headlines and conspiracies to gain traffic by using two names to make $$$$$

Obama and Hillary. Type-casted by the Alt. Right birthers.

Let’s talk about a real “birther movement.”

Ailes gave birth to Fox News and got cheap entertainment. Ailes never denounced birtherism he gave it a platform and a megaphone. Now he’s working with that unruly group from Breitbart, Russian propagandists, Anti-Semites, misogynists like himself, and like with Nixon, trying to sell a crook to the American People. The difference between Nixon and Trump is a leash.

Hypocrisy is the worst sin for a Christian. Christ rages against the Pharisees calling them “hypocrites!!” He means it. Defending Islamaphobes, xenophobes, anti-semitic racists, misogynists, pedophiles, pays a price. Insulting Blacks, Muslims, Women, Children, Hispanics, Asians, Military, World Leaders, Allies, all because you didn’t reign him in, will be your consequence after November 8.

Matthew 23: 33
33 “You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?

On a positive note. I love this ad and still have hope. aryl voting begins here in Nevada on 10/22. I urge every woman to stand up vote against the monster who inspired low self esteem women in order to defend their great cult leader, that the 19th amendment should be repealed for Trump.By voting against Trump we can save our children, grandchildren, sisters, mothers, and any female who has body issues, or had to fear losing her job due to sexual harassment, or even those who feel shame for not able to beat the power in numbers. All it takes is a voice. Election day is the one day in America were the People get to be the boss. They get to vote out the free loaders, or the ones not doing a good job. We’re also the people who in strong numbers can defeat tyranny, and make no mistake Donald Trump is on a crusade to take aways everyone’s rights to stay in power.

Vote early, vote on election day vote so you’re in control. God Bless.

Time To Pivot Hillary: Do a Press Conference.

Hillary Clinton’s Worst Enemy isn’t Donald Trump. It’s Herself.

I say this with the utmost sincerity. Donald Trump and the alt. right are a serious threat to our country, yet Hillary ignores the outsized elephant shitting in the room. It is her race to lose, and she’s losing to herself.

Here’s a solution because conservatives want Trump to lose by a huge margin, and we’re willing to help but dammit she’s got to step up and earn our trust. I want that Trump referendum so teahadists are kicked out of office and fraudulent pseudo-journalist whores like Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, Ann Coulter, and the rest of alternative right are humiliated, thrown out on their ass, and silenced to the attic where they belong.

Her come to Jesus moment is to earn the trust of the American People. Take the high road. Be transparent, not cryptic, or guarded. The fear of being a headline for Breitbart or Hannity’s hate machine is the least of your worries. Trust me they already hate you. However, Center right conservatives are resigned to the fact that the GOP candidate is a danger to national security and seriously is an unhinged, nacho colored wanna-be dictator. After that fascist, “Make America White Again,” love fest in Arizona followed by ringing endorsements from Ann “the godmother of Aryan Nation” Coulter and Grand Wizard David Duke, he’s not moving up in the polls.

She is going down.

Hillary’s unfavorables fluctuate like a ego centric fool swimming against high tide in the Atlantic. Volatile, and unknown, a set course that many grudging conservative sailors are forced to take. It wasn’t easy for republicans to endorse Clinton. Her inability to come clean for fear of discomfiture is like a four-year old hiding chocolate chip cookies behind her back. We have no visual proof she took it, yet the paper wrappers scattered all over the floor and the chocolate goo gummed on her fingers builds tells a different story. The longer she denies it, the more the American people just want to send sneaky Hillary to her room.

It is draining on the mind, day after day to assess Hillary the litigator in action, splicing arguments, and giving a backhanded answer to a weary nation. That’s not presidential, its cunning, and exactly why there’s unrest with trusting the Dem Candidate.

Hillary says no more emails.

FBI finds more emails.

Hillary said Comey said that she was truthful.

Comey said you was not.

Hillary says that she made a mistake.

Yet she fails to learn from it.

LIKE A CHILD.

Not a hate mongering fool, but a sneaky, child who cannot TRUST the American people’s judgment when it comes to her personally. Listen, many cannot handle the two different rules the Clinton’s write for themselves. We just want her to STOP doing it.

Hillary’s narrative of “truth” is immeasurably dissimilar that drips endlessly from a leaky faucet, annoying the American People. I am tired of hearing about her damn emails because its not a main issue. Trump pushing white supremacists, narrative from Russia IS A THREAT. He’s a madman running neck and neck against her and catching up because accountability MATTERS.

Tired of hearing Freedom Caucus use your self-inflicting scandals to raise money in order to elect Putin’s puppet. I’m tired of the splitting hairs. I don’t care about your personal life I just want leadership not sneakiness, and it is my vote that counts. Trust is earned, not entitled. Just because Trump is a devious hate mongering son of a bitch, it doesn’t exonerate The Clinton machine. You choose to “walk the line” in ethical behavior, without defense, without justification, but with a self-righteous indignation that pisses off republicans. Do as I say, not as I do.

Without question, your foundation has done boundless work helping with AIDS research, and give proper medicine to third world countries. But it deserves solid leadership that is ethical. Hand the reigns over to someone else not after the election. You cannot have your cake and eat it too. No politician can. Yes, there’s a vast Right Wing Conspiracy against you and your husband. We know because the same exact Vast right wing conspiracy attacks Center Right conservatives, calling us RINOS, goes after our candidates, blackmails them, humiliates them in propaganda smear machines.

We get it. The meanness is off the charts.

You’re not the only victim. Hell, the media gets it, how many journalists are attacked daily on social media for reporting the news, thanks to alternative right manipulating the press? They attack you, media, us. Roger Ailes literally told alt. right insiders that the Clinton’s tried to kill him, which is utter bullshit. But to the low info voter, they’ll suck up everything like a hoover deluxe. But that same smear machine has attacked common sense, kitchen table republicans who respect the line of right and wrong, most Americans do.

That’s 2/3 of the country sitting in the same boat with Hillary.

IF she wants to keep disgruntled republicans in her column, do a press conference, speak in a straight line, from the heart, allow herself to be vulnerable. It’s not weakness its called BEING HUMAN. Talk about the vast right wing conspiracy, list out the examples, we know, because center right is now on the receiving end of it on social media, and in print. There are editorials from print media urging Hillary to cut all ties from Clinton Foundation, admit her reasoning for a private server, and be accountable for her mistakes. They do it because IT IS HER RACE TO LOSE. Either she wants to win by a nose, with high unfavorables or she works to EARN the TRUST of 2/3 of the country. She gives alt right exactly what they want, and makes it so, painfully easy.

Surprise us for once. Answer your critics, every leader should. Face your mistakes, and choices head on instead of hiding behind Trump’s.

That’s not leadership, that’s low bar.

You say that you take responsibility for your actions.

Well…We are waiting….?

 

Dear Reince…

I cannot for the life of me understand your endgame for the Republican Party. No, seriously it is truly mystifying watching you defend a con artist like Donald Trump. Perhaps you, like the disgraced, sexual predator Roger Ailes, and his Igor-centric pseudo-journalist, Sean Hannity, believe that we true conservatives, not the Alt. Right Breitbart scum-sucking swallowing teahadist/trumpists, are unenlightened about the GOP candidate. It truly escapes rationality that Chairman believes no matter how many times he forces Trump to reset his campaign, that center-right will blindly support a deceitful, xenophobic, misogynist, alleged raping, [according to divorce transcripts] legendary flip-flopper, twitter-trolling, Mein Kamph-reading, Kremlin ass-kissing, NILS [Name In Lights Syndrome] suffering, media-whoring, bully, for Commander in Chief just because there’s an “R” by his name.

Have you seen the polls? 

I wouldn’t be surprised that by the time this election season folds, and the final tally of electoral votes are counted, that your alcoholic mini-bars are bare like Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard. You’ll be discovered lying under that shallow desk of yours, lamenting on and on like the Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz, grasping to that last bottle of Bard’s Birth as calls from prominent leaders on Capitol Hill shriek in condescension for your resignation.

Here’s a reality check, RNC chairman.

Republicans and Independents are not voting for Hillary Clinton because they think she’s honest. Hell, we know she has a Pinocchio complex. We are not voting for her like the Blue Fairy hoping she’ll become a real person with integrity. Our bar is really, really low thanks to your nominee. We are not voting for her because RINOS are suddenly liberals. In fact, far left deems ol Miss Hilly as a hawkish Republican. We are not voting for her because she’s forgiven for her email debauchery. To be honest, I have email fatigue. I don’t care anymore because its petty bullshit compared to the real issues I’ve seen in this campaign. When I see leaders of Freedom Caucus cite Clinton for perjury in order to elect an ally of Vladimir Putin, that trumps everything and casts a darker cloud over the lost soul of the Republican Party.

GOP Priorites are out of touch with 2/3 of the American People.

How does one compare an email scandal that lacks criminal intent to a demented narcissist that shames Gold Star families, people with disabilities, [like myself] demeans educated women, [Megyn Kelly and Mika Brzezinski] picks fights on Twitter, legitimizes racism, capitalizes on a tragedy in Baton Rouge just for a photo-op, and finally, wants to use the Peoples’ House to televise The Apprentice from the Situation Room?

Why should educated republicans and independents like myself, already taunted by the rising alternative right vote for their despicably rotten, incompetent tangerine-colored man child who puts his vanity above all including National Security of the United States?

A wise writer friend of mine recently put it best: If you found a skunk and a jackal on your doorstep, which one are you going to shoot?

As long as Costco carries four years worth of V8, I can live with the smell.

If Republicans Want to Win Then Trump Must Lose.

Dr. Martin Luther King once said, “There comes a time when silence becomes betrayal.”

The silence from conservatives regarding the refusal to denounce Donald Trump as candidate for President of The United States betrays the people, the Republican Party, and our core American values. Get ready to call this an intervention or “coming to Jesus moment.”

Conservatism is feverishly ill, running a high temperature. It’s acting like a crystal-meth junkie trading in his/her morals for their quick fix. In order to save conservative values, it is time for republicans to break their elephant addiction by voting against Donald Trump, and putting the country first.

“A true patriot loves his country all the time and his government only when it deserves it.”——Mark Twain.

For the past seven years, the rise of the Tea Party has turned into a dark, populist movement, and like cancer, it’s eating away at the very foundation of the Grand O’l Party. Their message, “join us or die,” is showcased not just at GOP but KKK, neo-nazi,  rallies, and openly protesting moderate republicans and democrats as if they are the enemy. Benjamin Franklin, the creator of the “join us or die flag,” never intended for its meaning to be used AGAINST his own country. It was to symbolize UNITY with the colonies in order to fight tyranny TOGETHER. This sets a dangerous precedence when a third of Americans are AGAINST their own country.

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”—Abraham Lincoln.

For years, conservative radio, blogosphere, and cable outlets hammer a false reality in order to divide the electorate, and remain in a position of power while cashing that $$$$ paycheck. An angry audience is engaged, and easy to manipulate. Roger Ailes understood this playbook all too well. Political positions were set up as a pro/con mental juggernaut to fire up crowds with certain buzzwords in order to trigger a negative, and fearful, response.

Ailes created the illusion that if you’re conservative, you must take the Fox News point of view, otherwise you’re a RINO, not a true republican, and not an American. Radio pundits from alternative right had a voice in MAINSTREAM MEDIA, sharing a dangerous ideology that threatened politicians, media, and opposing parties. “If you’re not with us, you’re against us,”  Sarah Palin echoed recently to the #NeverTrump movement at a Trump Rally. If you didn’t support the alternative right viewpoint, you’re the enemy. Not only did the ruse work, but it damaged trust between voters, press, politicians, political parties, and our government.

“The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous, he cannot believe it exists.”—J.Edgar Hoover.

Freedom Caucus holds congress hostage, and threatens career republicans. They’ll be voted out if they do not accept the new version of the party. I have a nickname for the Tea Party, and it is not kind. I call them teahadists because they reject ninety percent of the American people and their values, and support anarchy over democracy. In my opinion, they’re not republicans, they’re obstructionists adopting the “my way or the highway” mantra, and reject anyone who shares a different opinion. If push came to shove, teahadists would vote for Charles Manson if the R were by his name. Donald Trump is Frankenstein’s monster of the birther movement, the Biff Tannen of politics, and soul bearer of Joseph McCarthy’s ghost who rewrites reality.

“We’re an empire now and when we act, we create our own reality.”—Donald Rumsfeld.

That’s a frightening quote from Rumsfeld, isn’t it? We create our own reality. That has been the doctorate for far right wing for eight years, and its finally brought the country to its knees. Reality isn’t TRUTH. We can create an alternative reality by simply denying TRUTH. This worked until teahadists turned their venomous poison on center right, educated, common-sense conservatives. The party abandoned its principles for power and greed. I know because I was one of them. I felt brainwashed, unhealthy, and utterly repulsed to accept a narrative just because “the party says so, therefore it is so.” Somehow truth was replaced with fear mongering and politicians who adopted this dark thinking, were rising to power.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such a time as the State can shield the people from political, economic,/military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”—-German Third Reich–Joseph Goebbels

When I was a child, my parents taught me kindness, truth, compassion, and “treat others the way I want to be treated.” Bullying isn’t a sign of toughness but weakness. Donald Trump isn’t just a flawed man, he’s an emotionally damaged, narcissistic sociopath with the attention span of a petulant toddler. He, like his surrogates in media, all suffer from NILS—NAME IN LIGHTS SYNDROME. Palin, Hannity, O’Reilly, Ingraham, and Coulter, thrive on being the center of attention. Palin enjoyed shoving John McCain aside, bullying to bask in the spotlight and of course, Roger Ailes, the mastermind, gave her and the rest, a platform on Fox News. Think of each of these personalities for what they truly stand for and you’ll see that those who support Trump, are exactly like him. I’m not implying they all read Mein Kamph like their candidate, but they certainly borrow a page or two with their political agenda.

“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul this unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of statesmanship today.”—Theodore Roosevelt.

Congratulations pseudo-journalists that entertain conspiracy theories and adopt Goebbels philosophy. Selling a dangerous narrative based off unfound truths, with the  purposeful intention to brainwash crosses every line of moral decency. Alternative right manipulates fear and repressed anger by replacing fact for a Machiavellian form of fiction set in East Germany WWII. One-third of Americans literally, deny reality for the fearful fantasy.

“Strange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught in falsehood’s school, and the one man that dares to tell the truth, is at once, called a lunatic and fool.”—Plato

Patriotic Americans uphold the U.S. Constitution and respect the rights of every individual. True conservatives reject treason, meanness, indecency, prejudice, and hate. The fact that Donald Trump praises the efforts of dictators like Kim Jung Un, and Vladamir Putin should terrify every American. God has sent the ultimate test to his children: deny Satan and all his works of evil. To ban Mosques, Latinos, mock disabled people, chant hate, deny freedom of religion, terrorize American Muslims and treat them like jihadists simply because of a racial fear, is pure evil.

This is not who we are.

To ally with Vladamir Putin and praise him as our “friend because he’s nice to me,” while Russian intelligence hacks into our government to RIG our elections, and steal our intelligence, is tantamount to treason. Think of Hanoi Jane frolicking with the Viet Cong, laughing while your father, grandfather, brother, cousin, boyfriend, husband was over there fighting in a war that never existed only in memory and in a photograph. How is this any different in what Trump is doing, and when did conservatism no longer mean DEFENDING or LISTENING to our military?

This is not who we are.

To support a “nominee” just because there’s an R by his/her name and remain silent is an unforgivable betrayal to the American people. Voters hire politicians to look out for their needs, and secure our country. They don’t give their vote as a blank check, they expect leadership and politicians to defend what is true. National security should never be political and stop at waters edge, isn’t that a pact in congress?  In my family there are republicans, democrats, libertarians, and yes, independents. None of us hate nor call our family members “them,” nor do we refer to them as “the enemy.” Everyone has a viewpoint that we respect because in the end, the family foundation is what guides and nurtures us. To abandon those values is wounding the American Spirit.

“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident.”—Arthur Schopenhauer

My candidate for president was Governor John Kasich. A compassionate leader who cares about ALL not “some.” Kasich didn’t win the primary because sadly, he was too kind, too decent, too intelligent. The alternative right rejected a GOD fearing man for Lucifer’s towel boy. A contemptible sewer rat, a slum lord, a con artist, a traitor, a bully, a misogynist, a racist, a trigger happy sociopath, a compulsive liar, ALL BECAUSE HE PUT AN R BY HIS NAME.

I refuse to accept teahadism/trumpism ideology because it is the antithesis of Christ’s teachings, and America’s core values. That is not who I am, where I come from, or how I raised my children. Now that my granddaughter is on the way, I will teach her moral courage, patriotism, and understand that being an American is about standing for the TRUTH.

“Truth. It must be truth. When a man lies he murders some part of the world.”—Excalibur.

For the Republican Party to win, Donald Trump must lose, and not by a small margin. Teahadism is destroying our democracy, and Donald Trump is the embodiment of obstructionism. Center right must weigh the severity of this election and treat it how our Founding Fathers battled tyranny–by uniting for the greater good. The only colors that matter are red, white, and blue, political parties be damned.  Competence, experience, judgment, ability to handle a crisis, knowledge of our military, and understanding that we do not live in a “us vs. them” country is what I care about. Who is the best person to lead our country against terrorism, tyranny, and bring all of us together? Compromise is a necessity not a hinderance.  Leadership matters. Knowing when to stand up for those even when you don’t agree with them is the moral courage that Donald Trump lacks. It is the essence of doing what’s right.

That’s why I’m with Her.

 

 

 

Casting Stones: The Dangers of Religious Fundamentalism in American Politics

On June 26, 1948, The New Yorker published Shirley Jackson’s polemic short, The Lottery. In contrast to the magazine’s fascinating glimpse into the harmonious society of New York City, the feedback to Jackson’s laborious work gave birth to an intense backlash, disgust, and deep-hearted confusion, unlike anything the highflying magazine had ever experienced before. The fictional story highlighted a community mirroring life in the heartland that partook in an annual lottery where each of them drew from a black wooden box. The winner, or albeit the sacrificial lamb was a mere homemaker, named Tessie Hutchinson. To the reader’s disgust, the townsfolk, from the young to the old, stone her to death in the public square. “It isn’t fair, it isn’t right, Mrs. Hutchinson screamed, and then they were upon her.”  In the formulae of literature, The Lottery remains one of the most controversial, yet groundbreaking achievements in storytelling largely because of Jackson’s unsatisfying ending. However from a writer’s perspective, the story is pure evil goodness.

Without warning, the story sucker punches the reader unapologetically, like a false preacher who tears out innocent hearts of his loyal congregation. Subscribers wrote letters of antipathy to the magazine declaring their public outrage and threatening to yank their subscriptions. The New Yorker published each of the letters, allowing readers to rebuke freely Jackson, including her mother. In a recent article in The New Yorker, Jackson biographer, Ruth Franklin recounts some of the letters that Jackson herself stored deftly in a scrapbook for over fifty years. “There were indeed some canceled subscriptions as well as a fair share of name calling–Jackson was said to be “perverted” and “gratuitously disagreeable,” with incredibly bad taste.”

Right up until the end, Jackson’s graphical gently manipulates the reader to feel he or she is amongst the townspeople for a friendly church raffle. The character Old Man Warner is a curmudgeon living in the past with plenty of salts in his bitter words. Before the reveal, he acts like the lottery is nothing more than a difference in politics. “Pack of crazy fools,” he said. “Listening to the young folks, nothing’s good enough for them. Next thing you know, they’ll be wanting to back to living in caves, nobody work anymore, live that way for a while. Used to say, “Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon.” Death apparently, from Old Man Warner’s viewpoint is about habit. “Seventy-seventh year I been in the lottery, seventy-seventh time.”  Mr. Summers, the caretaker or more like the master of ceremonies, transports in his crumpled hands, a black box jam-packed with creased paper. 300 people line up like cattle, loom for Mr. Summers to announce the winner’s name. He hopes they will finish before noon dinner. “Let’s finish quickly,” he said.

Does Jackson’s barbaric cleansing mirror today’s society? In 1948, Hollywood became perplexed to Jackson’s meaning. Sterling Silliphant, a producer at Twentieth Century Fox, wrote, “All of us here have been grimly moved by Shirley Jackson’s story…Was it purely an imaginative flight, or do such tribunal rituals still exist and, if so, where?”

Unlike the young boys in Jackson’s story, in society today, stones act like fierce chipping’s chucked at people’s heads or like lethal bullets inside a smoking barrel, fired without conscience or concern. A father from Pakistan ordered his family to stone his pregnant daughter to death for refusing to marry her cousin and said he had no regrets.  That horrifying story can be found here and is just a small example of religious fundamentalism practiced in the Middle East.

[The Stoning of St. Stephen.]

The interpretation of biblical scripture in law can prompt revulsion over benevolence. Christ’s disciple Stephen was stoned to death for his belief in Christ. In John 8:7, a female prostitute is about to be stoned for her moral crimes under the Old Testament law. Jesus says to the condemnatory townspeople, “Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Christ imparts that man is ham-fisted at judging anyone but himself. While this horrific form of law is practiced, in America, we engage in a different form of “stone throwing” and its not quite that different.

It is strange that politicians prefer to quote Leviticus and Deuteronomy rather than Jesus’ teachings. Leviticus is always negative, filled with fear, damnation, and harsh punishment. “God would not want this we must fight…” many will shout to the crowds manipulating “Christian values” under the guise of prejudice and hate.

[Ted Cruz above has a striking resemblance to another radical who

enjoyed destroying the rights of others. McCarthy nearly succeeded with his “stone throwing.”]

Every sin in Leviticus is answered with public stoning. To eat on the Sabbath, the punishment is death. To work on the Sabbath, is death. Ah yes, then there’s this. In Deuteronomy, A non-virgin who has sex with her husband shall be stoned to death. Isn’t that sin what transpired the Pakistani father to murder his daughter and grandchild?

Philosopher Immanuel Kant said that human understanding “is the source of the general laws of nature that structure all our experience; and that human reason gives itself the moral law, which is our basis for belief in God, freedom, and immortality.”

11038 Kant

To be moral is to do the right thing for the sake of wanting to be moral, and not wanting to be immoral. Jackson’s story reads like a religious parable advising humankind to be merciful and humane. Perhaps that was Jackson’s point of contention. Mercy is beyond the comprehension of society, but the misfits, poets, and melody makers of the world, live in perpetual hope.
