3/18/18 If you missed it, this is Putin’s acceptance speech, translated.

Thank you, my friends. Thank you. We won in an open and fair fight, but this was not just a presidential election. This was also a very important test for all of us, for our whole country. It was a test of our political ripeness, self-sufficiency and independence.

We showed well and truly that no one can impose their will on us. We have showed that our people are truly capable of distinguishing between the thrust for newness and renovation and political provocation that has as its goal only one aim: to demolish Russia and usurp its power. The Russian people declared today that such choices and scenarios will not succeed on our soil. 

We won today, and thanks to the support of the overwhelming majority of our electors, we conducted a clean victory. We will work fairly and diligently. And we are calling everyone to come together around the interests of our people and our motherland. I promised you that we would conquer. We have conquered. Long live Russia.


Diagnosis: This is pretty straight-forward. 

#1. Putin does have to rebuke the stench of election tampering, just the way Trump does.

#2. Putin clearly states that election tampering will not succeed on Russian soil. We all know its OK for him to tamper in elections that are not on Russian soil, like in the USA and France.

#3 Putin asks for Russians to come together. He knows a divided country is a weakened country. That is exactly what he is trying to do to democracies in Western countries: divide and weaken or perhaps divide and conquer! 

Putin is clearly not a friend to democracy. We must treat him as an enemy of democracy and fight back with cyber weapons, the way he fought us. We don’t have a president willing to do that now. In fact, our current president wanted to get a tower with his name on it built in Moscow, and has plenty of money at risk in undeclared foreign bank accounts. This is money that can be taken from him if he does not play ball with this enemy of democracy. And Trump loves money more than he loves his country or his wives. 

The Trump presidency has become a huge problem for our country. Allowing a criminal money launderer to run for president was never a good idea. Going forward we must insist that candidates provide years of tax returns and declare all foreign bank accounts to hold public office. This is why Trump won’t show his taxes. He is and has been a criminal for a long time.

The Cure for America:

Vote out all Trump-aligned politicians in 2018. This is key. Trump and the GOP have about 200 days left to screw up our country. Then, like the Parkland kids say – if they build a wall, we tear it down. If they passed an unfair bill, we undo it. We can undo all the bad things Trump and his party have done to America if we retake the majority in our houses in November. And we can also punish all who colluded with Trump in this criminal coupe of the executive branch and make sure it never happens again. 

200 days GOP. Have fun. That’s what your president said when he took office right? We’re going to have some fun with this. Enjoy it while you can. 200 days and you are mostly all gone! And we can all thank Trump for that. If one good thing will come out of the Trump presidency, its going to be him exposing how sick our politics have become and allowing us to recognize our issues.

We have a diagnosis. Our elections were meddled in. The voter’s minds were hacked by a Russian man who has no stake in democracy, because he only remains in power through fascism. The cure for this disease is easy really because the disease is not living in the majority of American people; our greedy elected representatives are the infected ones.

They can be voted out in 200 days. 






Trump Alone Can Break Us. But 2018 Is 1968 On Social Media #Vote Them Out

I joined the protesters in Beverly Hills on the night Trump was in LA. Thousands of people, from all walks of life, some with kids, marched with home-made banners to have their voices be heard. There was a giant Trump balloon, and I put one  of my VOTE THEM ALL OUT stickers on his blue suit ass. It looked great. There was music, food and reporters. One group of Indivisibles dressed up as Russians and did satire. What was witnessed was something I am calling TrumpLash. #TrumpLash . Consider helping spread that hashtag/meme. It’s a winner. Pardon my Trumpism. 

Like a joke that is repeated too often and is no longer funny, Trump’s greatest hits are starting to really annoy Americans … everywhere. As people flee his inner circle, there is a growing sense that he really does not know what he is doing in his new role. He may have been OK as a reality TV star but he seems totally incompetent as POTUS. And all these job evacuees are costing us. It’s hard to get stuff done when your staff keeps changing. Projects are left unfinished. And the endless vetting processes for new staff are time consuming, draining and expensive.  Why would reasonable people be annoyed?

In 400 days, 43% of Trump’s top cabinet picks are gone . Many have stepped down, some have been fired, and some have even plead guilty to crimes. Trump said he would get the best people. But we now know that 43% of the time, his first choices were not solid choices. They’re gone. So they were not the best people after all, were they? And if that is the case, why would we trust him for anything if he gets it right only 4 times out of 7 ? We expect better in the USA. And for international diplomacy, 3 out of 7 wrong is a very dangerous stat. Imagine if Kennedy was wrong on the Cuban Missile Crisis or Roosevelt about Hitler. 

It is now also clear Trump’s hotheaded gut reactions are materially damaging the GOP party that he is aligned with. Why on earth would a thoughtful leader fire his Secretary of State on the same day of a tight election in Pennsylvania? That’s pure stupidity. It could have waited. That election was lost by less than 1%. I am sure that some percentage of GOP voters heard about that firing, and decided it was the straw that broke the camels’ back for them. They heard about the firing and switched their vote for the Dem. – or against the person in the WH. Same thing. There is clear evidence that Trump alone can break this (country).  People everywhere are beginning to catch on to that.  If we let him, he will break our democracy to save his neck. 

Welcome to the Spring of 2018. The weather is going to warm up. People will turn to the streets in numbers. Students were out today. They say it’s for better gun laws. But Trump is not going to do anything about gun control. He is too distracted trying to escape prosecution for his crimes. The underlying protest is against Donald J Trump. It’s TrumpLash. #TrumpLash

Even if he wanted to, Trump has effectively lost the public mandate to rule effectively. His approval ratings are at historic lows. And he never intended to work hard for Americans in the first place.  In his life, he has only ever schemed and cheated to benefit himself. Work? Working for others is not part of the Trump ethic. Serving his country? He was a draft dodger. Still has that mentality. His kids never served either. Not like Biden at all.

When he won, he said” OK, we’re going to have some fun with this“. That’s a quote. If it’s not fun for Trump, he does not get into it very much. Golf OK. Sex with strangers, very OK. Such a poor choice for president we have made. And we mostly all know it by now.

So what are we going to do about it America? The Spring and Summer of 2018 is going to be historic. The world really is watching us on this one. What’s it going to be?





What’s Really Behind Trump’s Announced North Korean Meeting?

jong-unDonald Trump announced today that he wants to meet with Kim Jong-un in May to discuss denuclearization. But was it Donald Trump, Jong-un, our generals, or Vladimir Putin – who first imagined this newly announced meeting? Let’s follow the money and logical trails and see if we can draw some conclusions. 

#1 The Washington Post reported in December 2017 that some of the more advanced missiles recently put on display by North Korea were acquired with help from Russia. This was according to actual documents from one of the top Soviet missile manufacturers. That’s a solid source of information. So Russia is working with North Korea, and clearly Putin has some pretty decent pull with Kim Jong-un. 

#2 On February 3, 2017, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un sent out Lunar New Year greeting cards to numerous world leaders, highlighting his international allies. He listed Russia at the top of his list, relegating China to second place and Cuba to third. His symbolic show of solidarity with the Kremlin has also been accompanied by a string of economic deals with Russia. North Korea is also beholden to Russia owing to its geographical situation. North Korea is to Russia is like Delaware is to the United States. 

#3 On January 31 2017, Russia’s state news agency, TASS, reported that Russia Railways representatives visited North Korea to discuss an expansion of railway links between the two countries.  They share a border. Both parties agreed to expand training for North Korean engineers at Russian universities.

The obvious conclusion is that Putin and Jong-un are working together – and in that relationship clearly Putin has the upper hand.

Putin also has a huge stake in Trump’s success because there’s a 500 billion dollar oil deal he wanted Tillerson/Exxon for, owing to Obama’s sanctions against Russia for Putin invading Crimea. This is why Putin wanted Tillerson and not Romney. Putin also has the upper hand on Trump. ( Interesting that Tillerson is out now. My sense is that he was too much of a patriot, to cow-tow to Trump, a person he considered a moron. Kudos to Rex. )

Trump and Putin are clearly both very greedy men, salesmen more than statesmen, and they have their eyes on the biggest monetary deal in the history of man

So what is behind Trump’s May rendezvous with Kim Jong-un?

We can already see the one major result of Trump’s North Korean meeting: it takes the main focus of news reporting off the Russian story, where Trump cannot get a break, largely because the criminality and truth is slowly coming to light.  

We have clear evidence that Korea is working with Putin, so Putin is obviously in on this May meeting with Trump and Jong-un. Putin may even have directed it. They all have back-channels. Taking the heat off Trump increases Putin’s chance of getting that oil deal, which if Trump is ousted, he will never get – and he knows that. 

With all three players tractably and directly connected, what we are witnessing is nothing more than a choreographed staged show designed to make it seem like a big global problem is about to be solved by Donald Trump. And that buys Trump time to keep the Russian heat away. I don’t think this will turn out to be anything more than that. A stalling tactic coordinated by Putin to help Trump – probably for that oil deal which is what he wanted when he started helping Trump with “bots” and “spies”. 

Plus if they really wanted to solve the problem, they could use a phone or face time tomorrow. But that is NOT the goal. The goal is stall and put on a show and keep the public eye off the criminal activity that went on, and goes on daily in this White House. Trump has stopped the formality of  documenting who visits the White House. He does not even want us to know who he is working with here in the USA, let alone the foreign spies. Our diplomatic corps has been slashed to pieces. He has sold us out – not just Manafort. 

And Trump still won’t show his taxes for fear of what? Please fill that in yourself. But it’s not because he never gave much to charity or he is under audit.  I assume it’s because his taxes reveal ties to the shadowy regimes he has been working with for years. I assume its because he launders his money because he hates to pay tax to the USA and take part in any serious building of America with his dollars. That sort of patriotism has always been for suckers in his “don’t tax me” mind.  I assume that reasonable people know he won’t show taxes because it will reveal that Trump is a criminal. 

Trump knows its harder to attack a president when there are wars or peace negotiations going on. So maybe this entire event is part of a few coordinated staged events to get the news off Trump’s Russian connections. And working backwards, this cynical logic is already proving out. It’s working. And nothing else makes much sense.

manchurian-bwIf Trump stays in power, it increases Putin’s chance that the 500 billion-dollar oil deal will happen. And of course, Trump gets a percentage of that deal, deposited into one of those secret bank accounts that he refuses to disclose to us. That’s how these deals are made.

I always assume that people with known greed disease, like Putin and Trump have shown they have one main objective: to gain more dollars. It’s how greedy people measure their success. Neither Putin nor Trump has shown the world, or their citizens any real care for their constituents. Have they? They are clearly both in this for themselves. They would both feel out of their skin to become charitable souls. We all know that. Trump supporters know this too. 

So media people! Please do not get distracted by this sudden North Korea thing; it’s a coordinated staged show.  Yong-un will likely change his mind when it gets down to actual denuclearization. It is still a favorite to be a nothing-burger with Kim walking away, and a net effect of stalling for time and making Trump appear to be presidential. 

Stay on the Russian/Trump investigation. You will eventually discover that the Russians recruited Trump – and that was done for the Russian oil deal . They have three more years to get that done if we don’t impeach Trump and Tillerson. It’s worth that time to make 500 billion, right? It’s a long con, as its called in carny world.

Neither Trump nor Putin can outrun the Blue Wave of 2018!

If we VOTE THEM OUT in 2018, we can flip the house and that changes everything. And it is beginning to feel like this can happen. Almost no average American wants the GOP’s no-care health bill . Why would people vote for any GOP candidates in 2018? 

Saving some huge political event, there are only two realistic avenues to save America from the current Putin/Trump regime, which is what we have now. 

#1 Mueller gets to the truth on the Russian hack, and shows us all that Trump was in on it before November. That would do it.  

#2 The country votes out all sold-out congressmen in 2018. It looks like the pendulum is swinging in that direction. So stay vocal! Then we impeach Trump. 

This oil deal is what the Russian election campaign was all about. It is worth at least a 25 billion dollars (5% commission)  for Trump and 475 billion for Putin. Putin and Trump are salesmen, trying to make a “score”, which is what they call it.  I know this because I went to that same depression-survivor sales school as Trump did. It’ s why we ended up in a class together at Wharton School of Finance.

trumpHowever, this type of selling was not taught at Wharton. It was taught at Trump’s dinner table, while growing up. I got fed the same lines – I just made different decisions about them. And that’s why Trump thanked his long-deceased father at his acceptance speech. The thank you was lightly glossed over by the media, but it was actually a big deal for Trump who had serious father issues.

There was real generation gap between the spoiled kids of the 1960’s and the children of the Great Depression. Listen to Frank Zappa to learn about that.

Trump finally got closure on his father issue with a brief statement made to the deceased. It’s probably something he never told him when he was alive. It was his way of saying, “dad you were right all along”. It actually was one of the most human and honest statements Trump has ever made.

Media! Stay on the real story – the Trump/Putin coordination.

Do not get distracted by the staging we are witnessing. We will get more of it. It’s all the guilty can do. We will get to the obvious truth, but only if we stay focused on what our collective logic is telling us. We have elected a criminal. He is an outlying member of the Russian mafia, which deals in global money laundering. 


Very few Americans love Trump so much that if they knew he was a Russian agent, witting or not, they would be OK with it. Right?    Right?

Stay Strong Stormy! You May Have the Right to Speak – Regardless of Prior “Hush” Agreements

danielsWhat follows is a copy of an email I just sent to Stormy Daniel’s lawyer in Newport CA.  It also exposes a potential slippery slope, where Trump ends up having the right to silence anyone who speaks out against him. It’s a small step in his imagined plan to never step out of the presidency, because he knows when he loses his presidential protections, the good people of the world will see him out and put him where he belongs … with Bernie Madoff. 

To Stormy Daniels and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti

Consider this:

Citizen Donald Trump had a right to speak outrageous falsehoods about Barack Obama’s birthplace. Had Obama not been president, Obama could have sued Trump for those false statements. But Trump had the right to say whatever he wanted about president Obama, whether true or false. Obama lost the protection afforded American citizens when he stepped inside the political ring. (I think it goes back to the burning in effigy laws.) 

I believe an argument can be made that a US president has absolutely no right to silence its citizens unless the information is deemed classified for national security reasons.   

Let me also advance an example from the business contract world. After all, Stormy’s lawyers are challenging a business agreement.  When Trump was a citizen, if one wanted to make a Donald Trump wig there would be laws to protect Trump from such manufacture without compensating him. He would also have a right to stop such production, if he so chose.

But the day Trump threw his hat in the ring, those citizen’s rights disappeared. Indeed, at Halloween many Donald Trump wigs suddenly appear for sale everywhere.  And Trump can’t ask for a penny. He has transitioned to a public figure. 

The “in order to” clauses that underpin the laws that give citizens rights to say anything they want about their political leaders anticipated the potential of an authoritarian president. This right was designed as a check on the potential abuse of power. It’s why speech is a right. The reason we have freedom of speech is to speak out against authoritarian leaders. Those rights were created for the same reasons our second amendment rights were created – to protect us from tyrannical rulers. And that right to speak about a public figure can’t be bargained away from a lawful US citizen. 

We don’t yet know if the contract with Stormy Daniels will ultimately found to be legal – but I am not sure it has to matter. An argument can be made that when a person transitions to the office of the president, any prior promise made to not speak about said president is no longer binding. 

President Trump is simply not the same entity as citizen Trump. The rights, protections and powers that apply to citizen Trump do not necessarily apply to president Trump.

In the US, a citizen can say almost anything they want about their politicians or their president, just the way Trump did about Barack Obama!  That’s how our founders wanted it here in the USA. And ​no one can agree to give away one’s constitutional rights. 

So even if the powers in control find the “hush” contr​act valid for citizen Trump, an agreement not to speak should not apply to a sitting president. There is support for this in our constitution, common law and contractual law.  

There could be another reason Stormy should be able to say whatever she wants about Trump: one cannot enforce an agreement to conceal a crime. I won’t pretend to know if trying to hide an affair three days before a presidential election was some sort of crime, or was part of some crime or pattern of crimes.  But it sure seems to be part of a cover-up, which is a crime.

Kindly consider these lines of logic and feel free to get back to me in solidarity and or get this to people where it can really matter. If it fails some sort of smell test I don​’​t know about, let me know so I can correct my blog entry with your knowledge of the law. 

Finally, it seems to me that if Stormy has something to say and leaks it all out in one publication, a million dollars would be cheap price to pay.  It could easily be raised from a few donors or a gofundme campaign.

Stormy. Stay strong for all of us! 




Security Clearances – “Thick As Thieves” and The ‘CLEAN HOUSE’ Bill

Over thirty top staffers in the White House don’t have security clearance. Without uniform and thorough vetting processes, those who are privy to top secrets can be blackmailed by their past connections, crimes and embarrassing behavior. Well duh – but what’s the point of vetting staffers if their boss, the president, refuses to be vetted and is suspect of being compromise-able?

manchurian-bwDoes it occur to anyone that a US president should also be vetted for security? And yes, maybe they should be vetted before they are even allowed to be candidates. But that would be for 2020, I guess. For now, the president is actually the most important person in the US to be un-compromised and un-compromise-able.  Think about it. Without presidential vetting in place, we have created a safe space – a gun-free zone so to speak – for a potus to commit crimes and engage in self-dealing without reproach. And now that Kushner has been found using the White House to get large business loans, its clear that self-dealing was the intention of the president and his generals when they took office.  How rampant is this?  Very rampant! A dirty boss would want to surround himself with other like-minded criminals, so they are naturally loyal to each other. No Boy Scouts allowed. Thick as thieves, they used to say.

Does any senator or congressman or person have the guts to propose a bill that says “going forward, no one can work in the White House without security clearance, the president included.” That is in the public interest, is it not? Representatives are supposed to be working in the public interest. This is a damning failure in job performance and likely not to be advanced because many of them fear that scrutiny would expose their own crimes. 

Trump says he cares about protecting Americans. How is allowing insecure staffers get top secret info “caring” about security? It is not. So we must care for ourselves here. We can’t be stupid. Trump’s early campaign line was “How stupid are the people of Iowa?” Well America, how stupid are we going to be about security clearances in the White House or the Congress for that matter?

I want to propose a CLEAN HOUSE BILL. And we can state the exact vetting process by which ALL campaigners for high office, and even current office holders will be subject to. No exceptions. This is security. It must be applied to all with the exact same standards, regardless of the position of said vetted person, POTUS included.

Can someone please advance this notion in a bill, ASAP? With that in place, we would not need Mueller to investigate Russia to hold Trump accountable to some degree. I would think declaring 5 years of taxes would be part of any vetting process. It’s a new day. We must be smarter, or we will lose this democracy this year. 

Trump Is Buying the Government

Trump has been buying key people to escape justice for the crimes of espionage, money laundering and tax evasion. His modus operandi has always been to bribe or enrich certain key people to smooth the way for his crimes and projects. Right now, his only project of concern is avoiding prosecution for Russia. If he loses that battle, he loses his freedom and his family fortune. He’d rather sell the country out that have that happen. That’s why we don’t see any support to stop Russian meddling in 2018 or even implement a Russian sanction. They are his allies!  It’s not in his interest to sanction Russia as a criminal president – and he will need to stay in power to keep his fortune. And of course, if he sells Russia out, they will leak the whole ugly truth. He won’t love Wikileaks any more. 

Between the who are bought and those who are suborned, the US democracy does not have a chance unless Mueller delivers the whole truth before November or we vote out all sold-out politicians And since the crooked politicians know this, the 2018 election will be rigged again.  The Russian meddling is still going on and Trump is not even implementing the sanctions. He needs them more than he needs food. 

The Way Out Of This Mess

Trump’s projects must be stonewalled! I don’t care if Dreamers have to take a back seat for a short while. We won’t have a USA by year’s end if we don’t fix this now. So they will lose the US they love too unless we take decided action now.

#1 We don’t vote on a thing until the Russian sanctions are implemented.

#2 We don’t vote on a thing until Trump puts it in writing that he will not fire Rosenstein or Mueller without just cause, said cause to be determined by a court with many justices on a bench.

#3 We don’t vote on a thing until Jared Kushner and all Trump WH staffers are vetted by a thorough process conducted by the FBI. We can leave Trump out of this because it is sort of covered in #2.

Enough for today but one more thing.

Bernie and Biden should run together as a ticket and start campaigning now. No more Dem vs. Dem. These are our best, caring, well-spoken senior warriors. No women for POTUS this 2020 cycle. No ethnics either, I am sorry. We will need to appeal to Trump’s base people to some degree for one cycle. Once we win, anything is possible. But we must win in November. We can show the forgotten people that we care. And, if we keep our word to Trump’s base people and improve their lives, they will notice and we will be showered with two generations of loyal supporters. Trump’s base people actually are loyal, perhaps to a fault. That’s how we can take this country back and set it on a righteous course again. 

And I have just got word that my commission to make 500 political buttons that say VOTE THEM OUT in solidarity for the Parkland shootings, has gone through and I will have them soon. This is ultimately the way out of our mess. We vote out all sold-out politicians.

This November We Must Vote Out All Who Will Not Legislate For the Common Good

We like the idea of limiting the firepower of the lunatic in North Korea, but we are giving lunatics in our homeland access to killing machines. This makes no sense.

#1 There’s plenty we can do to make our country safer without hurting hunters’ rights.  Automatic weapons are not, and should not be used to hunt animals. What kind of hunting sport is that? And yet we allow automatic weapons to get into the hands of people who kill people for sport. This is crazy America! A recent certified national poll shows that 70% of Americans favor an assault weapons ban.  Representatives who will not publicly state they are in favor of an assault weapons ban, must be voted out. Rubio – Trump – that means you – and plenty of others.

It’s now clear that there is a group of politicians who will even stoop to cheating at the polls with foreign bots posing as Americans. Our president will do nothing to change this. It is how and why he got there and he is compromised by his life of crime. So our numbers must be overwhelming this November.

Gun violence is also very expensive. The costs are 230 billion dollars a year – over $700,000,000 per day!   And it is surprising how few Americans would be negatively affected by an assault weapons ban. Besides Smith and Wesson there are about six other companies that make assault weapons. And then there is a small group of gun collectors who would have to surrender or sell their assault weapons to the police or armed forces. Weight that against $700 million a day and the loss of life and this is a no brainer.  

These businesses can not be valued more than the lives of our kids and citizens. We must now legislate for the common good and vote out all who stand in our way. A good barometer of the viability of a society is its system of values. When its values erode, the society either falls apart or is overtaken. This is exactly what happened in Rome. It’s not that “it can happen here”, it is happening here … right now.

POSSESSION of automatic weapons, NOT the PURCHASE of them, is what needs to be regulated or licensed, like we do for automobiles. Automobiles can be weapons, but guns are weapons and an assault rifle’s sole purpose is to kill mass numbers of people. Why does any civilian really need an automatic weapon? They don’t! 

Even if we had Minority Report pre-crime detection bots and took the Parkland shooter out ahead of the crime, it would not change the fact the we have a systemic disease here in the USA. And like a cancer, it’s going to grow and kill the host body if we don’t start the healing now. The medicine is voting out greedy politicians who won’t legislate what their constituents want. And 70% of Americans want an assault weapons ban. 

And gun maker’s profit protection is just one place our national body has disease. We also see its symptoms in the way our reps undermine healthcare for our citizens in exchange for kickbacks from insurance companies. GOP healthcare, if ever fully implemented, would kill far more people than 911. 

We hear its symptoms reflected in the words of our heartless president who offered lukewarm support for Puerto Ricans with memes like “you are messing with our budget” or “there are a lot of business-people who support the Jones Act”. I hear it is gangsta rap, where the lyrics often refer to being rich as being as the be all end all goal in life. I see it in the way people adore big stars, and then ignore the stars in their own communities. 

The underlying disease is all one: greed. This cancer, is now metastatic. It’s everywhere. Cutting out one infected organ will not cure us.

GREED starts with GR because, like many words that start with GR, it refers to GROWTH.(GARDEN, GRASS, GREAT, GRAND, etc.) Within greedy souls, GREED is a GROWTH that is out of control  – which is exactly what a cancer is. 

And yes, greed will always exist. It’s been witnessed and documented for over 5000 years.  Smart societies put checks and balances into law so that greed does not overrun their governments.  It’s popular to say “get the money out of politics”, but Citizen’s United gives money a larger voice than the actual citizens of our country.  Citizen’s United gives greed a platform to operate and grow here.  That’s neither right nor democratic. Citizen’s United must also go.

And we can do all this in November because it’s easy to spot the greedy politicians now. They are the same one’s who won’t publicly announce they are in favor of an assault weapons ban. They side with the NRA for personal greed, and they do the same on all issues. It’s who they are – and they can’t fool us now. 

It’s a strange irony that the word AMERICA contains two word-parts, AMORE and RICH.  America literally means “loves riches”: Ame-rica. Maybe it’s a self-perpetuating meme. Pardon my linguistic digression, but before Trump became POTUS this was my focus. 

So, I am not that interested in this single-cell Las Vegas or Parkland sicko. We should strive to cure our sickness the same way we fight a systemic cancer. It starts with diagnosis: recognizing the nature of our actual disease: we permit politicians’ greed to shape our lives and laws to the detriment of our citizens.

Donald Trump is a brand that symbolizes greed disease. His first campaign words were “of course you love me, I’m rich”. He learned most people have some level of greed disease from his casino-owner days. And as the gap between the wealthy and the poor grows here, there and everywhere, there will be more and more bad cells acting out – out of desperation. It’s sort of like a negative lottery. Given time, it’s bound to happen again and again. And it’s going to keep happening until we get money out politics or we succumb. 

It was not always that way, here in the USA. After WW11 the rich were taxed at a much higher rate than the poor so that stored capital naturally flowed into infrastructure and education, helping us all and making us naturally proud to be Americans – or US citizens. 

We must start our healing process now. And while kindness and prayers are fine for moral support, if they do not lead to actions they function like placebos.  We need thoughtful, caring legislation ASAP. The vast majority of Americans see no reason why anyone should be allowed to own an automatic weapon, or more than a few firearms to defend themselves. We are not against the second amendment. The vast majority of Americans see no reason Russian bots should be allowed on Facebook. But as long as greed governs in America,  the country that loves richesnothing will change.

Let’s focus on voting out the greedy in government in 2018.  The best thing we have here in the USA is national elections every two years. The next one is November 2018. We can’t afford to get distracted. We have no time to waste either. I sincerely believe 2018 is our last chance to save the ailing American society.

If for no other reason than to send out the messages that US citizens will no longer be governed by greed and that we realize greed in government is our national disease here in America, we must vote out infected ruling party members – at every level. 


We can do this. The citizens who voted for Donald Trump wanted to vote out a broken system. They just were so blinded by their desire for change that they did not see that Trump was a charlatan. I have forgiven them. They mostly know they made a mistake by now. So those same voters can be enrolled to do that same thing again – to vote out a diseased system. 

We must assure that greed has no place in our government. When Citizen’s United falls apart under a new regime, it will begin to turn the tide of our systemic greed disease. 

And then maybe, slowly, the way you kill a cancer, we can return to the kind America I remember as a child. It was not perfect. No society is. But it was much more inclusive than what we have now. We had a visible path to a good life here, and many of us seized that path and have enjoyed that good life. I was lucky that way.

Now, our kids don’t even see the on-ramp to that path. We have let them down terribly. I am not a big D Democrat. Don’t paint me with that broad brush. I don’t care about parties. I care about the actual people who we elect. I wish there were no parties at all. Parties are part of the greed disease problem. I am a global citizen living in America. My homeland that I love is now governed by greed. It is killing us all and we all know it down deep. All I want is better for my kids. I’d like to the healing begin in my lifetime. 

A spiritual disease is being transmitted to Americans by man a who has been infected all his life. It’s very contagious. 2018 may be the last chance to save us from greed/envy disease. It is usually fatal to societies. 

These are the only two laws we need to keep our schools, churches and streets safe.

#1 LICENSE GUNS beyond the basic two. OWNING ( not buying ) unlicensed guns will be a serious federal crime. And yes, law enforcement agents will have the right to seize unlicensed guns. The loss of one’s gun can be the prime punishment. No sense attaching a huge dollar amount to it and scare people. Assault weapons do not belong in the hands of unlicensed people. That is the goal.


Less words. More Actions.

I wrote Song For Healing when I was on chemo. It helped me a lot. My way of praying I guess. It’s not all I did however. Have a listen: 

Joseph Aronesty is an e-commerce pioneer, songwriter, author, linguist and father to five sons living in Los Angeles. He was a classmate to Trump in Wharton in 1967. He is a also tireless activist working to reset America to be the more inclusive place it was when he was child. josepharonesty@gmail.com


Dem’s Blew It Again. Trump Reverses Memo Release. When Will They Get It? Trump Cheats To Win.


Written 1/21 – Updated  2/12

We had Trump cornered in shutdown and did not take advantage of that temporary power we had. Plus, we did not even have to risk looking political for asking for the shutdown because Rand Paul did it for us! How stupid or timid are we? Trump will NEVER play by the rules. He never has. 

I have said this before, and it is even more important now. SUPPORT NOTHING TRUMP WANTS – ABSOLUTELY NOTHING – EVEN IF WE LIKE IT – UNTIL HE COMES CLEAN – which means :

#1 Release Democratic memo

#2 Implement Russian sanctions

#3 Agree to testify in person with Mueller  

Anything short of that, you do NOT support anything he asks for. Watch how he can;t get out of this choke hold. I have no idea why you don’t see this. Play hardball, or prepare to lose this country to Russia.

The following is relevant for historical reasons only. The moment has passed, but its strategy remains do-able with budget voting.

The government is due to shutdown again February 8th over the spending budget. This is NOT the time to back down! Trump’s border proposals are designed to make us look weak on immigration to his 35% base. We are the 65% now! We need a meme and message that exposes Trump as the traitor he is. We must draw a hard line in the sand re: transparency. Then we can use our terms- not DACA – which will happen for Dreamers anyway- when the government re-opens on our terms – in about a week.  We will explain how easy this really is to accomplish. Basics first.

Poli-Sci 101

People wonder what is keeping Trump in power. Yes, it’s it the complicit GOP, but they are influenced by their electoral math. The 35% base support for Trump nationally, is 70% base support within the GOP.  They can’t fight that. They don’t have the guts to be real patriots. And they need their jobs I guess. So we need to get that support number down to about 50%- 55% within the GOP to end the Trump presidency. That means we need to cut into that support by about 25% more. We believe this is easier than it seems to be right now. 

Trump appeals to folks who psychologically need strong courageous leaders. Actually, this is the original reason that humans decided to have leaders  – even within our tribal communities and back into the Stone Ages. It goes back to the animal kingdom, to wolf-pack organization. We choose alpha-male leaders to protect us from enemies. – human enemies – foreign tribes. We chose the physically strongest among us. What happens when an alpha-male is exposed as being weak? In the animal kingdom, he is quickly deposed – usually killed by the next in line or a group of them. Show Trump to be weak and his own will take him out!

The Solution to our Trump Problem Starts February 8th –  Shutdown #2 Day

All we need to do is make Trump look like the weakling he is at heart, like the draft dodger he was, when the government shuts down again. So we change the conditions to re-fund the government.  We temp shift the accent from DACA and Dreamers, which we come back to after he steps down in a week anyway. We shift the onus of refunding the government to him for being willing to sell out his country to Russia – which we all know is what happened – and being willing to keep the government down to protect his fortune – which is what is happening.  

It all comes down to the words we speak – and the timely memes we put out. We place new conditions to re-fund our government. We now insist that Trump be transparent to re-fund the government. We can say we need to make sure it is OUR government we are re-funding. Many have this insidious feeling that it is not our government any longer, that our representatives have sold out to a president who has himself sold out and/or has been compromised by our natural born enemy – the autocrat Vladimir Putin and Russia. 

We ask you to call your representatives and ask them to add one to two of these demands to refund the government. Find your own words. You can also add Dreamer protections of course, but that alone has been done and failed. By adding conditions, we come off stronger and Trump is exposed for who he is. We need citizens calling in all fifty states, but especially in New York and California, as those reps have the most power. 


#1 – We won’t talk refunding until Trump formally implements the Russian sanctions bill that he signed in August. It’s just sitting there stalled.  He was supposed to address that on the Monday, the 29th of January. We say to Trump: implement the Russian Sanctions Bill before we talk with you about re-funding the government again. His base does not love Russia! We ask to keep the government down until he deals with the Russian sanctions. 

When Trump says that’s a non starter ( and Trump will ) he shows himself to be a traitor right there? We put Russia and government shutdown in the same space. We won’t lose that fight. Dreamers vs. border security, furloughs and military – we can and already have lost. This meme is a win/win.

#2. The Democratic Memo – We insist that the Democratic version of the memo be released immediately in order to re-fund our government.  We all have this sense he’s not even going to do that. He will look like he is obstructing justice to his own base if he keeps the military waiting for their checks over this.  So let’s have him on record for not wanting to do this. If he does, pass and go to the next.

#3 –  We can add that we want him to meet with Mueller ASAP and/or promise that he will not fire Rosenstein or Mueller without legal cause and a impartial vetting process for that cause. It’s better of we make two demands at least. It gives them wiggle room but also makes us look stronger. We want to appeal to the alpha-make lovers in Trump’s base. I think that is what Dem’s miss so often. We already have our minds made up. We need to change other minds, and trump will do it for us if we lay this trap.   It won’t take but a few days. His military will be missing their paychecks and they will realize he is even willing to sell them out to keep his money and secrets. Then he is really done. We bury him right there. 

#4. When he delays on Mueller, we demand his taxes be released to open the government.  We spin the whole thing as if he is a traitor, because he has been a traitor – in many ways – and still behaves like one. And his base just needs to see that. We can help them see this. Its all just words and memes. This is easy. 

And it’s all a WIN/WIN/WIN for us. We win because we finally found a way to force Trump to do the right thing, and the public will see that. So now we win for being the strong alpha-males as well. And we win even if he says no I won’t implement the Russian Sanctions to refund the government. Then he is immediately done. We win no matter what he says. This is checkmate. 

Schumer/Feinstein/Schiff: We have him now and maybe you don’t see it.  Trump will play hardball. Stay two steps ahead of him. DACA is not an issue that will win out over the military being shut down. That is a game we won’t win in the long run. But, this double down game I am proposing cannot lose. His presidency could be over in a week. The idea is to make Trump seem like he is stalling for time, because of his own neck. His own GOP will impeach him and if they won’t the Blue Wave will drown them all in November and they have no counter move once these memes are out. They can lose their base over him not being open about taxes and Russia. Even his base wants this out. No one likes or wants a president sold out to Russia! This is your leverage this time – while shut down – expose HIM to be the traitor!

This is the outlandish and bold move we are waiting for. They are trying to shut down the FBI. Get a spine! Now! Let’s make the calls – and have this reach the ears of our reps in every state. 

We are better than Trump – all of us! And we are not in the minority. 


What If Trump and the Entire Executive Branch Has Been Suborned?

Suborn – to bribe or induce (someone) unlawfully, to secretly perform a misdeed, to secretly commit a crime.

Written May 2017, updated January 2018

At some point in time, and hopefully before something reckless is attempted by the president, we are going to have to know the whole truth about the 2016 election. We just can’t have foreign governments influencing our elections, because it is our free and fair elections that have defined America – and since 1776.

I am herein making a plea that the investigative process to be put on a fast track, with a goal to reach conclusion within 60 days, if at all possible. Campaigning for the 2018 election will begin soon – very soon, and Russian intervention will happen again if we don’t identify the problem and eliminate it. Defending against espionage is like fighting a cancer. You have to know what kind of cancer it is to fight the maligned cells. And we have to know who the bad cells are and what they did – so we can make them go away. 

manchurian2Because I went to school with Trump and was subjected to a similar ethos from my father, I was one of the first to say Donald Trump was in bed with Russia. To me it was clear when he said ” Russia, if you are listening” on the campaign trail. But I also surmised money laundering evidence when he declared bankruptcy in Atlantic City. 

Now at last, the media and investigation is catching up to the truth. Way too slow. There has been so much damage and cost to America and Americans due to this slowness. As of January 2018, The Russian contact/collusion/conspiracy trail has undeniably reached the White House, Trump, his family and its administration. Way too many of the president’s advisors and cabinet members are either under suspicion, been indicted or have pleaded “guilty” and are working with the Special Prosecutor. 

It’s been pretty obvious to many of us all along that something does not feel right about Donald Trump. I don’t care what “side” you have been on. Does this feel right to you? Answer that and then ask yourself what we should be doing. 

Trump, a true don, has always been in on everything his subordinates and family members have done for him. We cannot assume or even make leeway for Trump knowing what his people are doing for him.         And if he really was ignorant of all this, that’s gross negligence – and that’s not a quality in a president that we need. 

Trump keeps saying and will continue to say “no collusion”. That is the classic “Mafia don” alibi for murder, ” I didn’t do it, I didn’t know he did it”.  Of course, the dons don’t get their hands dirty … but they order the hits and are culpable. No soldier in a criminal organization takes serious action without telling the don or they risk their own lives. They swear allegiance to the don, and that is exactly what Trump thinks he is – a don. In his unattached imagination – he is a don.

Donald Trump has not signed that Russian sanction bill sitting on his desk for months. It’s to his political benefit to sign it (and ours). And yet, he does not because he cannot. Trump is suborned. And the GOP do nothing about it because their leaders are guilty of the same crimes. They all have dirt on each other. That’s why they swear allegiance.

Trump and his soldiers colluded with Russian spies to win the election – and now all are suborned and are forced to side with the Russian political agenda ( not ours)  as payback one way or another. If they don’t, Putin can leak the full unabashed truth about what he knows and totally sink Donald Trump and the entire Trump GOP.  What would Putin care?

So this president cannot serve faithfully as a US president. He can’t, even if he wanted to- and there’s never been a shred of evidence that he has wanted to or capable of serving anyone faithfully.  This is exactly how the greedy, the over-their-head stupid and/or the unwittingly suborned become the blackmailed.

And this is the hardest part. It would be one thing if it were only Trump. But the entire executive brand may have be suborned. 

Regardless of our political affiliation or lack thereof,  what we now have as American citizens, is a thoroughly dangerous security crisis. These are now practical solutions to our dilemma.

#1 – I really think that Trump should be stripped of all powers until he shows his taxes. That at least would show a willingness to cooperate. He’s not going to supply it anyway. He’d rather step down than show his taxes, and I’ve been saying this since the day he was elected. He’s been in bed with Russian money laundering since the 1980’s and his cash cow – the casinos. Reason: tax avoidance.

There is currently neither enough confidence in Trump, or any of Trump’s cabinet members to efficiently run our government in a way that is truly focused on improving or protecting the lives of ordinary Americans. Nor are we assured that all or most of the  executive branch members are not part of a suborned group of unwittingly Russian-aligned politicians, to whom we have just given the keys to our weapon systems. This is foolish and very dangerous!

We have way too much at stake here to gamble on Trump’s claims of innocence – or fake media. Both citizen and president Trump have repeatably shown they can’t be trusted to be honorable. The facts we know don’t add up any longer to most Americans. 

We really can’t afford all this bickering any more. It’s shameful and wasteful. In one year we have become a the total laughing stock of the planet’s first-world countries. And the people’s business is on the back burner and the fire is turned off. So #2 : 

The Conditional Impeachment of Donald Trump

So, for the good of the nation’s well-being and security, I am proposing that a few house and senate representatives announce and initiate a 2-step impeachment process.

  • If Donald Trump does not show his taxes forthwith, he is quickly impeached. 
  • If Donald Trump does show his taxes forthwith, he must give up the right to fire Mueller without just cause, and become fully cooperative in the Mueller investigation. We need to know ASAP:
  1. What happened in the 2016 election? 
  2. What’s going on now in our government now?                                                                                                                                                                                                                         It comes down to this. Would Donald Trump would rather be impeached than show his taxes? There can be no delay. For the good of the national security, Donald Trump’s taxes must be revealed immediately. If he refuses to cooperate, we have the right to assume Trump has something serious to hide and that he can’t be trusted to run our government – and hence he must  be impeached. 

And this is the sad part. Since all of his picks may be suborned, in the interim we probably should bestow the mantle of POTUS to either Rex Tillerson(R) who also seems to want out –  or better James Mattis (I) because he is independent and should have been out of the loop. Ryan is theoretically ahead of him but has said he wants to retire. Oren Hatch is retiring as well and he is way too old anyway. Pence will be found to be complicit in the collusion. He knew and said nothing. 

The line of succession Trump has set up is so ridiculous there is hardly anyone there I would trust to be president. Would you?

1 Vice President Mike Pence (R)
2 Speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan (R)
3 President pro tempore of the Senate Orrin Hatch (R)
4 Secretary of State Rex Tillerson (R)
5 Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin (R)
6 Secretary of Defense James Mattis (I)
7 Attorney General Jeff Sessions (R)
8 Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke (R)
9 Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue (R)
10 Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross (R)
11 Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta (R)
12 Secretary of Health and Human Services Eric Hargan (R)
13 Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson (R)14 Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao(R) 
15 Secretary of Energy Rick Perry (R)16 Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos(R) 
17 Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin (I)
18 Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke (I)

Now if the president does cooperate and shows his taxes, then he and his chosen staff should certainly continue to preside. It could be easy, if only he was innocent. Fair is fair.

But until this is resolved, their war powers should be taken away, for obvious reasons. Congress must now have to sole power to make war during the FBI investigation.  The sheer numbers of people in Congress will serve a safety valve in this interim period. American safety must be an extra high priority now. We know that he knows that war tends to shut down internal investigations. A war made to keep him in power cannot be ruled out. We see they are capable of doing anything for their own interests. If he engaged with Putin to win an election ( and Trump did say ” what does it all matter if I don’t win?”) he can not be trusted at all. 

The president must be completely helpful during the investigation and may not refuse any requests of Chief Investigator Mueller. If he does, he and his staff are all  considered impeached. We need this resolved as quickly as possible – not 2 years from now. With this ultimatum, I believe we can get to the truth in less than 60 days. 

Dear Congressman, please note: This plan has promotional appeal to ordinary folks on the right and left because we all pay taxes, and we all know Donald Trump bragged that he did not like to pay taxes. This irks all taxpayers, left and right. So there is this large bipartisan agreement that Donald Trump should indeed reveal his taxes for the good of the country. This is actually the most unifying element between the left and the right. Polls bear this out. So we must seize this unifying element to unite our country, and experience the collective empowerment that will come when we all demand Trump’s taxes in lieu of immediate impeachment.

This left/right appeal is a hugely valuable selling tool. People are going to agree with this on both sides. They already do!  Give Trump the option to show his taxes or be impeached. The court of popular sentiment will be the deciding vote anyway.  2018 is approaching. It is the sort of selling tool used on the Trump campaign trail. Trump knows, people can be sold – even when their best interests are at heart.  We can’t have a suborned executive branch. And that may be the case. Time is not our friend here. 

Now, if Trump shows his taxes, the investigation will go into a fast track, because so many connections will be revealed.  A speedy proper and conclusion has a much better chance of being realized with his taxes published. There can be no more waiting and delaying and no denial of evidence along the route. Donald Trump must put our country’s best interest ahead of his own.  It is something he has never done, going back to his draft-dodging and tax avoiding. But if he has been a reasonably honest player, he should have nothing to worry about. 

If any members congress do not support a conditional impeachment demand, and if  owing to that lack of congressional support, the motion to impeach does not carry the house under the existing laws, then all who stand in the way of conditional impeachment must be voted out in 2018. 

We must make our intentions very clear to all politicians. Citizens from the left and right must put that pressure on. There is no make-up for politicians on this. It they are not even interested in even seeing Trump’s taxes in these trying times, they are probably guilty of being suborned themselves, or they are in on this whole Russian affair. At the very least, congressmen would not be doing what representatives are supposed to do – represent their constituencies wishes.   

Polls overwhelmingly show that most Americans actually want to see Trump’s taxes. Whoever stands in the way of this, is part of the problem. 

subornShould we ultimately discover that the entire executive branch has largely been suborned during the campaign of 2016, or even that Trump himself was suborned, the cabinet selections of a suborned president obviously cannot be trusted to govern.  I think we can all agree on that. It may then be reasonable to discuss one other option. I know I am getting way ahead here. 

If we get closure of the 2016 election by April of 2018, and Trump is found guilty we should consider pushing the 2020 presidential election up to 2018? It’s time to think out of the box. We deserve and actually need a functioning government, elected by a true American majority – in an election that can not be rigged or even affected by foreign powers. Otherwise, we have actually lost our democracy, right?

Our vote is the heartbeat of the spiritual being called American democracy. 


Email me. I am making calls to representatives this week on this. The idea is to get his taxes or begin impeachment. Any congressman not on board gets voted out in 2018. Are you with me? 

Trump Has Lost the Authority To Govern. He Needs a War. We Need Him Out Fast.

written August 2017 ~ updated December 2017

It’s getting increasingly likely that Donald Trump’s campaign managers, many of his appointed representatives, and Trump himself – are going to be caught for serious crimes against the United States. Since the Manafort raid, the guilty can sense that truth will eventually come out and it won’t set them free.

approvalTrump has also lost the ability to govern or rule with moral authority.  His approval rate is about 33%. He has been caught in too many lies. His base is catching on as to who he really is.

But Trump knows of no other way of being. We now know he was simply was not qualified, intellectually or emotionally, to be a US president. He was only good enough to turn a presidential election into a mud-fight and win that fight. And his team clearly enrolled help from foreigners, which is very illegal under the Espionage Act. 

No democracy can survive if it permits foreign actors to affect its elections. Mueller is closing in on Trump, and the Trump machine is feeling the heat. Trump now believes that if he somehow could become a wartime president, he could skirt being exposed for his crimes.  He knows how silencing the press and martial law can be used to keep the public in the dark. This is why we feel down deep that we are on the brink of some sort of war.  Trump would have 10 million Koreans die to save his empire. Nuclear war? He has a jet. He does not care about people. Never has. I went to school with him – Penn. I could share some stories. 

Realistically, Trump probably did not step into politics with the premeditated intent of becoming an authoritarian fascist. But corrupt, greedy businessmen can devolve into dictators without that having been their initial goal. In the pressure cooker of crime and punishment, criminals can feel compelled to go fascist to skirt justice. That’s what happened to Bassar al-Ashad. He was a successful, wealthy businessman doctor. He needed to become a dictator to survive in Syria.  This is pretty much what’s going on with the Trumps’ right now. They need to become authoritarian to cover up their crimes.

Hear this citizens – on all sides of the political spectrum! We just can’t let that happen here in the USA, can we? This is not a banana republic. I hope we are all on the same side of that aisle. We have way too much to lose here.  I know I feel that way. Don’t you?

But fellow Americans, if we are not smart about our situation right now, and we don’t take immediate actions to reject all corrupt officials and work to install install new representatives in 2018 who are sincerely dedicated to the public good, it (fascism) can happen here in 2018. We are not immune. America is a country like all others. How do you think fascism sets into a democracy? We are potentially witnessing that descent , right now. 

 There is a way out of this mess. But we have to insist on justice being served. 

#1 Given Trump is under investigation for serious crimes, Trump cannot retain the power to pardon anyone in this criminal investigation. That is just ridiculous in this situation and someone in Congress needs to bring this up ASAP. He must surrender his right to pardon anyone connected with the Russian investigation. That’s like allowing Capone to pardon his generals. It just makes no sense and sets a ridiculous precedent. 

The election investigation must go on. We need to know the truth, even if it means we can’t punish some of the players. I have said all along, “Trump would rather step down than show his taxes”.  Maybe that’s the avenue for Mueller. Maybe that’s all anyone needs to press for and he is gone. So …

#2. Trump must show his taxes immediately as part of the Mueller investigation. The line about “under audit” is a glaring lie. And even if he were under audit, that is no reason for an honest player to conceal tax filings in the wake of the Russian meddling. Trump would be above the law if we don’t insist on that. And no one can be allowed to be above the law in the USA, or all our laws are not valid. That’s fine in Putin’s Russia, but not here. The USA is supposed to be a democracy held together by laws. 

History teaches us that criminals who rise to political power will attempt to go fascist in order to escape the crimes they have committed. It simultaneously becomes their only avenue to escape justice and the people’s largest nightmare.

incompetentI favor asking Trump to step down ASAP for incompetence … not espionage. It is easy to find a few reasons why Trump is not qualified to be a US president. Waiting for a full trial and an impeachment is just taking too long. He passed this tax thing because we did not close him down. He’s making use of the extra innings our slow justice is affording him. Trump is a big dummy, but about crime he is not dumb at all. At crime, he may be a genius. 

Current world events are such that we seriously need a president with moral authority on the world stage. He’s been given a year to learn how to behave like a president. He has not done that. Enough!

And, Trump would accept incompetence or bad health as a reason to step down rather than be indicted or face espionage charges. (He can feign illness for all I care.) 

We simply can’t have people who worked with foreign powers to sway a US election running the government. Given the chance to escape full prosecution, the guilty will step down. Trump will as well, if its laid out sweetly for him.

So why not do that? He was a draft dodger and still has that inner chicken mentality. His sons went to no wars. It’s fine for others to die to protect his Trump brand. What a sick man he is. 

 Please spread the message in this blog. 

Together, we can save our democracy.

CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE IF MUELLER IS FIRED is starting to make news. And it’s senators that are encouraging it. There are different kinds of civil disobedience. But I think the right kind for now may NOT involve taking to the streets.

This time of year, the streets are cold. Cold weather is what broke Occupy – and of course the lack of a real plan.
So look at this:
Inline image 1
It’s a bumper sticker that I created but did not print. But its RIGHT ON point for civil disobedience. April 15 is coming. 
There is NO CLEAN WAY out for Donald Trump expect to make a deal and claim bad health. I have known that from the day he won. He is a criminal. I worked near him in AC – and he avoided tax my moling cash to Russia. It was very obvious. No way he lost that billion. He has been borrowing his own stolen money for 30 years. No way out for him except WAR or stepping down. 
I am a business man – and of course I pay taxes – and no loopholes for me. My business is online and its very middle class mom pop. I sell wigs primarity to women with health issues online. So I can’t get this ball rolling. 
But the message – I assure you – will resound in both RESISTERS and HIS BASE. 
And I think we should circulate this message. It’s this – or surrender to Russia.
I’m not saying we don’t OWE tax. We do of course.
But we should all file for extensions on April 15th. He will be forced to show his taxes that way.  And then he is done 100%. And yes, we’ll have to fight the penalties for extensions. But it’s a small price to pay for saving democracy. 

The messages in these other posts are also very important to internalize.

Two Easy Fixes to Revive Our Dying Democracy

Published March 2017 – updated December 2017

If you watch a town hall meeting you can literally see and hear that many of our representatives have no problem lying to our faces. For example, there are countless instances of representatives telling constituents, ” Yes, i agree with you. We should not repeal before we replace”, etc. But then, when you follow their vote, you find they actually voted for repeal. Knowingly saying one thing and doing another is a textbook definition for lying.

And yet, lying to the press or to constituents does not violate any US lawn and maybe it should. These people do swear oaths. Today, these oaths apparently mean nothing. Let’s face it. Our government was formed in the 1700’s.  Words had meanings that were more sacrosanct back then. So let’s get basic on words. I do so love words. 

REPRESENTATIVE. Why did the founders use that word and not a word like “Duke”?

An elected “representative” RE-PRESENTS an idea or bill. That means the original idea or bill is not necessarily theirs to create. That task could rightly belong to the constituency – which is all of us – which is what a real democracy should insist on. But to do that, citizens need to be engaged, not so much in government, but in the actual issues!represent

And what actually happens after candidates get elected to office and show up in Washington DC? They quickly discover there is a pre-existing and deeply entrenched system of big business paying big dollars to sitting representatives to get the goals of their big businesses done – and not the goals of their constituents!

Hence, we see the GOP advancing the idea of repealing healthcare, or lowering taxes on big businesses – so they can get their kickbacks – even though these bills are not popular with Americans. It’s clear they don’t care at all about the people they allegedly serve.  And yes, to be fair, there are Democrats that have their kickback issues as well. The human flaw of greed and sexual harassment is not limited to one party. 

The biggest issue facing the USA today is the ability of elected representatives to get kickbacks through lobbying and the potential to hide the money in undisclosed foreign bank accounts. Without these kickbacks or graft, as it’s called sometimes, a president like Trump could never have happened.

And unfortunately, the current US president is not only sold out to big business, but also to Russian interests. Why does he not show his taxes? Why does he fight to end the investigation for the FBI? A fish rots from the head. Selling out is rampant and it’s not just the president! It’s our congresspeople and many that work with or for them. 

And so, the real goals of the US citizens get totally overlooked. We couldn’t even get gun laws changed after Sandy Hook! What does that say about the people in charge? 

Senseless political bickering continues because this is what big business wants. A divided country allows big business to continue doing its thing, taking from the poor, giving to the rich. Big business wants bottom line profit only. They don’t want the common man to get ahead or even to get an education. Stupid consumers are good for big business. So un-christian. So greedy.  And yet, there they sit in Washington, doing their own business, not the people’s business.

And that’s where we are today – and have been here since the 1970’s. Our president embodies the swamp creature that selling out is. But at least, we can at least see the monster clearly now. It’s on TV every day. 

This cannot continue. It has to end and end soon. On this, even the Tea Party and I are in lockstep.  Business knows what will happen if consumers get organized. Incomes will get spread around more evenly, and people will be empowered financially and spiritually to strive for more. That’s not the ideal of Wall Street or K-street, so they pit us against each other. FOX vs. MSNBC , etc. It’s getting old. 

“Make America Great Again” will only happen when we share more – not less. It’s the spirit of sharing that always made America great. Where has that gone? The biggest lie Trump and the GOP are perpetuating is that by handing funds to the greedy we will all be better off. What a crock. Who believes that anyway?

So the real war we have in the USA is an internal war. It’s “we the people” vs. “our sold-out representatives” in government. So many have to go in 2018.  And yes, they are not all sold out. We can tell who they are by the way they vote. Don’t listen to what they say, watch how they vote. You can Google that on any representative.  

But there are the two easy fixes that can save the US democracy. First, we need place to find our common ground.  It exists. I am willing to listen to the opinions of other citizens much more that the opinions of representatives. But where can I have this discussion? Twitter? Facebook? Not the way they are today. We need a real place to have civil discussions and then decide what the majority wants via monthly mock voting on the issues, not on the representatives. In a functioning democracy, reps should just be bots for the majority opinion.  

#1 A Perpetual Town Hall. We need an online mock government site for citizens where the issues that need attention are posted. There are spaces for expert opinions, stats, chat rooms, legit advertising (no bot ads) and mock voting on the first Tuesday of every month. This can easily be done by the folks at Google or Facebook.   (That’s a link to my letter to Google. Please check it out too.) But they will need to create sites reserved just for civil political discussions and mock voting. 

Once we have our minds made up on the issues, we tell the representative, sworn under oath, to do exactly what we ask them to. If they don’t do what we have chosen, they are breaking their oath and can be fired. This is not hard to do. 

#2 We have to end the ability of an elected national representative to have undeclared foreign bank accounts! This is how so many, Trump, Maniford, Wilbur Ross – et. al. find a way to hide their illegal payoffs. How dumb is it that we allow this? Very stupid folks. It has allowed criminals and even spies to get inside our government. It has to end!

This is the only kind of representative governmental system that will actually work in these digital times. All else is doomed to fail owing to the essential greed of human nature. Politicians are human beings and a system must be put in place to curtail their natural human greed.

It will be our fault, not the politician’s fault – if we don’t fix this flaw in the machine we call the US government.

These two simple ideas, once implemented, cannot fail . And it can’t possibly make things worse than what we have now, which is  – “Say what you need to get elected, then do what you want for yourself and friends once elected”.

What are we waiting for? 2018 is coming soon. We have the technology to do this right now.  Will someone with programming skills please set this up ASAP? It feels like a one day job by one smart guy. This would change everything. MockDemocracy.US is available. DemocracyLivesHere.com even better.   TownHall247.com is fine too.

This is a link to another blog on this perpetual town hall idea. If you know someone up the chain at Facebook or Google, please pass the link on.


josepharonesty@gmail.com Get me here. I’ll support this idea with dollars too.

P.S. There is already a political faction called The Pirate Party that advocates for something like this. Google it. Bad name. But they also believe politicians should be bots for our collective desires. After all, the USA is supposed to be a democratic republic. This is exactly what “a government of the people, for the people, by the people” – means.  Think outside the box people! That’s what the founders did. We have to do it again. And we have the technology to do it right now. 


The Way Back to Political Sanity Could Also Involve Facebook, Google, CNN

heartoftexas1It’s clear Facebook and Google had an unwitting hand in influencing the outcome of the 2016 election and derailing sanity in our government. Some days our situation seems almost hopeless. But the same platforms that helped spread Russian lies and changed the arc of our politics can also be used to heal our divided country and even make a permanent and lasting fix.

Proposing the Facebook or Google Politics Only Page  – Democracy Online – a Town Hall 24/7       

This would not be a place to post pictures of our kids or what we had for dinner. Obscene words would be auto-banned from entry.

This would be a place where advocates for issues post ideas. There would be civil chat-room discussions that focus on reaching the informed consensus that reflects the attitudes and desires of the majority of Americans. It could have national, state and even local discussion groups. It would be a perpetual town hall meeting of sorts.

With the degree of dysfunction in government, why should Americans leave governing ourselves to politicians alone? 

Politicians have repeatedly proven themselves to be sold out as a group. Yes, there are dedicated public servants in politics. There are also greedy business people and criminals who effectively steal ( legally ) from the public, and some even have foreign bank accounts to hide their theft. These politicians are, at best, unnecessary middlemen. A politics only page, where we discuss ideas to improve the common good and how to pay for it, could repair the citizen-representative disconnect which is so glaringly obvious this year.

Politicians should just be doing our bidding anyway. The re– in “re-presentative” government means we must first “present” our ideas. If we don’t first present ideas, we can’t blame the greedy-by-nature so-called politicians for taking advantage of their status – and representing for themselves – or for their donors.  After all, the head USA representative is clearly doing that. But we can’t blame the politicians – we must blame ourselves for letting them do this. Laws must change. They will or we will go under.

Politicians should really be bots for our decisions with no right to sabotage the majority opinion.

There would be rooms to discuss all issues from gay rights to gun rights and links to real information from recognized experts on all sides of the arguments. There could be a place for political ads by American companies and vetted individuals, with equal space for ideas guaranteed. And yes, some issues are larger than national, like air quality. – There could be even world-wide discussions to pave way to real world peace – end terrorism – and even insure the survival of the species. Imagine that! We have this technology right now. The technology was just sabotaged by international criminals to gain their intended effect in the election of 2016. Reverse engineer this. This is easy! 

Regular Mock Votes 

The best part of a mock government page would be regular mock votes. Maybe we could have them once a month. We could call the first Tuesday of every month – Mock Vote Day and re-form the healthy national tradition of getting information and then voting our minds. The sheer numbers in these monthly mock government votes would instruct the honest players in our actual government as to the direction the majority really wants to steer the country. Mock Government Voting is a super strong meme here. Statistics don’t lie – they inform us. 

And then we can finally insist that our representatives re-present the ideas of the majority, the way a democracy should work because we will know what the majority wants and even why. – Politicians who don’t represent the consensus would be quickly exposed and voted out or removed from office for not representing the majority. 

Based on the current popularity of news shows, I think Americans are ready for this. We can essentially use the same door employed to enter this dysfunctional governmental state- to exit it!

And if they ( Facebook, Google, or CNN) don’t want to do this – we can do this ourselves too. I’ll go on Shark Tank for it if need be

Can we share this on social media so it gets to the powers that be in the media, please?

Tax Break? The GOP Is Coming for Our Homes – Again!

 homesThis is the thinking behind the GOP tax plan. Remember, a cold heart does not supply warm caring solutions. 

#1 – Eliminating the tax write off for home mortgages does not burden the poor or renters. It also does not burden those who are so rich that their houses are fully paid for.  The middle class – and particularly the middle class in states that charge income taxes – suffer greatly under this act. The tax adjustment adds up to a boon to the rich and to the poor without homes or mortgages – but a crippling burden on the middle class citizens that have homes with mortgages.

#2. The GOP tax plan collects less revenue than the current system, but our governmental obligations to the people such as healthcare, infrastructure, education, do not go away. That means our national DEBT will go UP even more under this plan. They don’t even deny that! That then devalues our currency further and simultaneously forces the interest rates to float upwards. ( Remember, they just got rid of Yellen. There was a  reason for that.) When interest rates go up – home values go down! That’s common sense. And then what happens is there are more personal bankruptcies and the super rich step in and buy back the middle classes’ homes on the cheap.

Remember how this same debacle happened at the end of the Bush term in 2008? It is destined to happen again under this GOP tax plan. Who benefited from that 2008 debacle? The big banks and the super rich like Jared Kushner and Robert Mercer, et al. Cold-hearted people do NOT supply warm solutions – not ever!

The GOP tax plan is a diabolical two-step plan designed to let the super rich gain a further stranglehold on average Americans. It must be resisted with all our inner strength.

Get in touch with your INDIVISIBLE chapter. Voting out Trump GOP members at every level of government will continue to be out path back to an America we all can respect. 


Raise Our Voices is a song I wrote exactly one year ago today. ( SoundCloud ) Raising our voices at the polls, the workplace and on social media continues to be the path back to a better USA for all of us.

Great job Tuesday. But don’t rest on that. These super rich international players are still working hard ( if you can call that work) to bankrupt America and buy it back cheap.

Continue to vote the Trump GOP, and all their stooges in DC – out of office!


Make America United Again – Polibots

With what came out on Hillary’s DNC election shenanigans today, it’s pretty clear the election of 2016 was a sordid affair on all sides. Both candidates were clearly willing to cheat to win. Trump said this early on his campaign. “What does it matter if I don’t win?” He was even willing to enroll Russian spies to help him. Hillary was happy to throw Bernie under the bus to win. So both sides were clearly crooked. Winning was just too important to these people … and to their parties. And that’s because behind these parties, there are large financial contributors who expect payback for their “investments”. If we don’t find a way to get money out of politics, this insanity is not going away.

American voters sort of knew their two candidate choices were both sold out. For voters, the 2016 election was more about voting out an established, entrenched and tone deaf governmental system than voting in anyone. Bernie, who delivered his populist message from the heart, was played by HRC, who was played by Trump. It was like rock/paper/scissors and spy vs. spy – combined.

Do we want 2016 to be the new standard in US elections? I don’t think so. Maybe politicians don’t mind this syndrome, as they can find ways to milk a rig-able system, but the general population really hates it. That’s why congress has such a low popularity.

2018 is a year away. If we go back to DEM vs GOP, to left vs. right, progressive vs. liberal, god vs. science, white vs. black, Christian vs. Muslim, we will continue to sink as a nation. Divided we will fail. That’s pretty clear.

We need a political attitude adjustment, – a fresh inspiring new idea that can erase the borders we have constructed in our minds.  Maybe this simple idea is it: imagine there were no political parties – or more of them!

The two party system plays a huge part in keeping our country divided. And do you know who likes that? Big business! They do better when their is no unity, focus or drive in the spirit of the working class. And its big business that pays off the politicians. In this new oligarchy of big business, they can bust up unions, not pay for the old and sick and pollute the environment for profit. And if we don’t stop this, the living standards here in USA will continue to sink – as they have been since the 1980’s.

There is an easy way to break up the two-party system. Think along with me. Bernie is in good health. He can run as an independent or create a mini-party that supports his own brand of government. But 2020 is too far away. 2018 will be the divining moment. Imagine if a political outsider – like Tom Steyer, the billionaire turned environmentalist, a seeming Democrat, enrolled a partner from the other party and started a new party/union so to speak. Imagine if Steyer, Corker, Sanders – and/or McMullen said they were going to work together to solve our problems and run as a ticket in 2020.

A simple union between a few key people could change everything. We now have the appetite for this. Americans would absolutely love this because we know we can’t go on divided. The space between the left and right must be closed – but if we try to argue it out – it will never work. Never. We need two adults – well meaning public servants – one from the left and one from the right – to agree to work together, outside of their previous parties. This ticket would surely win in a landslide in 2020, but it could do a great job changing things in 2018 as well.

This would be the way I would run this union. This is my idea, but I am open to other ideas of course. A web site is put up which simulates a mock government. Our key government issues are posted. The population gets educated on the issues at the site from people with experience in the various fields. Videos, chat rooms and a place to have discussions are created. No “bad words” are allowed. (Sorry to go all 1950’s on you, but words can bridge gaps or divide us.)

And then there is a place to place mock votes and take polls. It’s a democracy, so the majority rules. Politicians can make their arguments too,  but the population’s majority sentiment must rule if the USA is going to continue to be called a democracy. In this world, we hardly need politicians to do anything more than educate us and do what we ask in Congress.

A trend we hear more and more about these days is robots replacing humans in the workplace. I don’t favor robots that take away jobs, like self-driving cars would. But when people cannot do their jobs honestly, maybe that’s a place where robots would work better than humans. Robot politicians? In this ideal world I described above, politicians must function as robots. Polibots! They do what their constituents request of them. They cannot be re-programmed, suborned or bribed.

Regardless of what Trump GOP representatives say about promises made on the trail,  my polibots could not support or advance busting the ACA, or tax breaks for the rich because polls show the American people don’t want the GOP’s healthcare or tax breaks for the rich, business-owner class. Both these GOP ideas have support levels that are close to 22%. So they would be DOA in a real democracy.

It sounds like such a dream. A real democracy. A way forward where we build infrastructure, create new jobs that are clean. But we have the software to do all of this right now. All we need is two key people to form a working left/right union and put up a web site. I see the desire for this kind of union – not only in the population – but in the tone of certain key players as well.

So now I ask my followers to make this suggestion to people you can imagine working together with members from the other side and actually stepping away from their parties. Corker seems ideal as he has already has stepped aside. Bernie is an independent – a man who already knows how parties corrupt. McMullen had his own party and Steyer wants a government focused making the USA #1 again in energy and infrastructure. I’d be happy if they all joined forces and started something really new here. And I don’t think I would be alone.

If you like this idea – spread it around on social media. Throw a stone and make a ripple. That’s how these things get started.


Let’s turn the Untied States of America into the United States of America – again. Or should I say, let’s Make America United Again.

I will add this. The WW11 generation fought to preserve democracy in the 1940’s. Their sacrifices will be recorded historically as an effort done in vein if we continue to allow money to sell us out the way we are.












Cyber-Warfare Is the New “Cold War” and Putin Is Its First Grand Master

noun: cyber-warfare
  1. the use of computer technology to disrupt the activities of a state or organization, especially the deliberate attacking of information systems for strategic or military purposes.

cyberwarAfter World War II was over, a new world order was established and The United States assumed the dominant position in that new world order for having won the war and for having the biggest shiny new weapon, the A-bomb. Russia never fully accepted subservience to the USA. And so the Cold War era – with wars waged without bullets – was born. The main weapon of the cold war was espionage, in other words – spies. 

That 50’s-60’s cold war era cooled down with time, but it never fully went away. Since the advent of the internet in 1996, the main weapons of that cold war – have increasingly become electronic. It’s now called cyber-warfare. But until now, it always seemed to refer to something that was going to happen in the near future. Cyber-warfare summons up visions like electric grids gone down, banks hacked and drained of cash reserves, and even cars that drive off cliffs. 

But cyber-warfare is no longer a thing of the future. The hacking of the US 2016 presidential election will be remembered as the first major attack in “the cyber warfare era” and Vladimir Putin will be dubbed its first master. 

Ask yourself this. What are the objectives of any entity that initiates an offensive war? If war is not launched to stop foreign aggression or for defensive reasons, it’s done to obtain things, resources or territories that do not properly belong to the attacker. It’s done for booty. The same reasoning pirates use to rationalize raid ships, right? 

And so, the evidence and consensus is now that Putin/Russia attacked the United States in 2016 via acts of cyber-warfare – in order to get their chosen candidate elected as the president of the United States. We have already lost that war. It’s over. Putin has won that war. But the war was not initiated for fun. Cyber war is expensive. The cyber-war players expected payoffs. 

However, these two questions still remain.  

Now that the Russian cyber-warfare is getting exposed, will Putin still get what he wanted from his horse in the race, so to speak? Putin used his mastery of cyber warfare to help put Trump in as POTUS for concrete reasons. Those reasons are agendas, lifting of sanctions, resources, money and territories – the very same objectives desired in an offensive war waged with bullets and bombs.  


Will the laws, traditions, citizen backbone of the USA resist with such solidarity that Putin’s man in office, Donald Trump, is rendered powerless to give Putin what he bargained for? Will we resist this Russian coupe of our executive branch so that Putin’s preferred candidate, Donald Trump, is exposed for espionage, indicted, and at least impeached? 

It should be clear to all of us, if we don’t expose and indict the perpetrators of this cyber warfare attack, we are giving those same players a green pass to do this over and over again.  And if we swiftly don’t make 100% sure this cannot happen again, it will be the same as if we had lost a war waged with bullets and signed terms of surrender. Yes, less bodies. That’s a technology perk, I guess. Cool. But maybe not for us.

It occurs to me that cyber warfare has come of age because our modern, high-tech nuclear and biological weapons are now so lethal that they really cannot be used. A need for warfare without death evolved – a way to get what you want from war, without the fallout from actual war. 

2018 is a year away. We immediately need open-sourced hack-proof voting systems. These are not expensive. The technology already exists.

GOP!  Congress! Stop bickering about walls, gays, and what is not important. This infighting is exactly what Putin wants.  Or are you fully surrendering to Putin? 

The hacking of the US 2016 presidential election will be remembered as the first major attack in “the cyber warfare era” and Vladimir Putin will be dubbed its first grand master.

How the Russians Hacked Our Elections & Why They Wanted Trump

Originally written April 2017, the logic of this post is undeniable. Now, six months later, we are finally getting down to exposing the truth. Hurry up Mueller and Warner!

spiesImagine if you were tasked with the goal to hack into the next elections … in Russia! Where would you even start? You certainly would not start with Putin. Too high up, way too dangerous. No, you would seek existing Russian dissidents, those with gripes against the Russian government and see what people were amenable to some foreign cooperation.

That is exactly what the Russians did. Nothing else makes any sense. And what cooperative dissident(s) did they find here in America? We all know that answer – Steve Bannon. It was Bannon who then recruited Trump into this foreign web of collusion. That is also why Bannon, a known anti-Semite, got an office right next to a convert to Judaism, his daughter Ivanka. I’m sure she said “Daddy no!” Daddy had to say “He knows too much darling. It will be OK”. 

Donald Trump can’t handle details. He never could. In college, we all knew he paid for his homework to get done. ( I was in a class with him at Wharton.) Trump can’t “study”. He deems that beneath him. His reading comprehension is almost non-existent. He pays people to do everything for him – even his reading and thinking. So it took a person like Bannon to set this complex entanglement in motion. It was right up his alley with his fake news publications. 

But Trump confided with Bannon, and even put him in his cabinet. And Bannon worked with Vladimir Putin. And that entire chain is a very serious crime. And it should be, right?

Looking back during the campaign, Trump was recorded saying,

“If I don’t win, this entire campaign is a waste of time.”

That was Trump trying to convince himself that he was doing the right thing by playing ball with Bannon/Putin.  The game had already begun. He was justifying it with that statement. That’s about the time he gave his OK to collusion. That’s about the time we see the escalation in “fake news”.

Update: The ads in Facebook, Twitter, etc. started around this time as well. Russians could not possibly know enough about the nuances of this complex country to time ads, coordinate and precisely target the right audiences – like people in Ferguson. They needed American help, and that is espionage. It was actually the greatest crime ever committed against the United States. It will be remembered that way, if we survive this.

There are many other American players in this crime. Most of Trump’s cabinet members are likely complicit.  Flynn, Manafort, Kushner and probably Sessions too – they had to be in on all this stuff or they could not be trusted. 

Why did the Russians want Donald Trump?

Those who know Trump know he has had Russian holdings and business arrangements for a very long time. This arrangement started in the 1980’s, when he started washing his casino cash in foreign banks, the way so many corporate crooks do. They don’t want to pay less tax, they want to pay no tax! And that’s because they are infected with greed and don’t really don’t love their country.  This was Trump’s original sin. Greed. It’s come back to haunt him. That’s exactly why Trump won’t show his taxes. Can you think of another good reason?

Putin knew Trump had moled cash overseas so he was the ideal person for Putin to get elected because he could easily be blackmailed for his financial crimes.  And that’s who we now have in the White House folks. Most US citizens believe this by now. We have to make sure this strategy is stopped because it is still happening right now. And Trump can’t and won’t do anything to stop it. He’s got to go. He is the ultimate traitor. 

Trump’s taxes will expose the trail back in time to his original Russian connections and his recent dirt as well. There is plenty.  We must see his taxes, the one thing he refuses to give up. He knows better than all of us why he won’t show them. 

Congress! Stay on this. Approve nothing that is not essential until he shows his taxes. He is really not a legit president. He is a Russian patsy. He cares for no one but his own. Donald Trump is now the largest danger in our daily lives, and that is true even if you voted for him. His no-care health plan told us where his heart is.  

There are many politicians who just don’t care about average Americans. Most of the GOP is sold out that way. But only a self-centered egomaniac like Donald Trump would stoop to espionage and selling out his country’s election system for his own purposes. We have not had a traitor like Donald Trump since Benedict Arnold.
