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

While I commend Schumer for showing a spine, this is NOT the time to back down! This is the time to add conditions – not remove them. I am about to reveal a 3-step strategy that cannot possibly lose.

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. 

FOUR CONDITIONS TO REFUND THE GOVERNMENT AFTER SHUTDOWN #2

#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?

Written May 2017, updated January 2018 and April 2019

Whether what the Trumps did was deemed illegal by the Special Counsel, I think all Americans can agree we just can’t have foreign governments influencing our elections. The American electorate has a right to the whole truth about the 2016 election. Why? Free and fair elections has defined America since we began. We realize this can never happen again. So we have to know exactly – not approximately – what we are fighting. 

manchurian2

It’s been pretty obvious to most Americans that something does not feel right about Donald Trump. I don’t care what “side” you have been on. He lies right to our faces with no shame. He seems to want chaos and is a divider not a uniter. He wants to keep secrets from us. We can’t see his taxes. What is he hiding? He won’t even let us see the notes of his meeting with Putin – whom we know has nothing good in mind for the USA. What is Trump hiding?

TAX EVASION

Tax evasion is one crime the Trump family has been engaged in for over 50 years. This is now reported by the Southern District of New York. They say the Trump family has avoided 500 million in taxes. Trump’s sister, a judge, resigned April 2019 when she found out the Judicial Review Board was going to look into her taxes. The Trumps are primarily a financial crime family.

Trump knows what crimes against this country he has committed. So he knows how important it is to stay in power. Once his presidency is over it will be impossible for him to avoid justice, which will be very costly to him and his family. After all, they are primarily robbers. When they don’t pay their taxes, they force others to pay more taxes. It’s like Trump is picking all our pockets. 

So I ask you this. Why are the GOP allowing this to continue? He has even turned their once conservative agenda into right-wing extremism.  And that cost the real GOP dearly in 2018. What do they expect to happen in 2020? They can’t win an honest election almost anywhere now. So they Gerrymander and nominate candidates who run their own election boards. In North Carolina, they outright threw opposing votes into the trash bin.

There are about 200 GOP reps in the House and 55 out of 100 in the Senate are GOP. The crucial margin of 5 in the senate is enough to allow them to install judges that will rule for Trump. So it comes down to less than 10 people in this entire country that are setting the agenda for the other 300 million. And that is ridiculous.

I was exposed the philosophies of the survivors of the Great Depression growing up in NY, NJ and Miami. I was exposed to them, but I did not accept them for my life. Trump did. And every now and then he leaks out little pieces of those “gems” in his news conferences.

While campaigning in Iowa in 2016 he said to a cheering crowd, “Wow. They love me. Of course they love me. I’m rich. I’m very very rich.”

This was Trump reminding himself that people can be bought. His entire administration is packed with people who either need or want more money. And if they are loyal to Trump, he will promise them “ a good life.”

At the Rose Garden he barked out to Bill Barr, “I hope you have a great life. “ So getting people to align themselves with your private agenda through bribery is one ace in Trump’s game. So there’s no shortage of would-be-crooks in the Trump administration. In fact, if he finds out you are not easy to buy off, he will fire you. That’s exactly what happened to Tillerson, Sessions and Comey. No Boy Scouts can be allowed to stay on in the Trump administration because crooks need to be aligned even moreso than honest people. One rat can sink their crooked ship.

How many swamp creatures does Trump have to buy to stay in power and skirt justice? About thirteen people. The swing votes in Congress, Mitch , Mnuchen, Ross, Barr, Pence and a few judges. Thirteen well-positioned people can hold up an entire country -sort of like the Greeks at Thermopylae. Does that seem right to you?

Think back. At some time, Donald Trump had not signed that Russian sanctions bill approved by his GOP Congress sitting on his desk for months – even though it was to his political benefit to sign it. And yet, he did not sign it. Why? There is only one plausible reason – because he could not. Trump has clearly been suborned by the very powerful Vladimir Putin.

And our government as a whole does nothing about any of this because the crucial swing vote leaders are in on the deal. They all have dirt on each other. That’s why they swear allegiance each other. “Thick as thieves” is apropos. 

Trump and his inner circle soldiers (many of whom are indicted and in jail) colluded with Russian spies to try and win a federal election. – And now all are suborned and are forced to side with the Russian political agendas (not ours) as payback for services rendered. 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.  Why would Putin care?

So this president cannot and will never 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 serve our country or was capable of serving anyone or anything faithfully. 

And this is the hardest part. It would be one thing if it were only Trump. But the entire executive brand must also be suborned. He fires the few who refuse to swear allegiance and stand on principle.

Regardless of our political affiliation or lack thereof, what we now have as American citizens, is a thoroughly dangerous security crisis. We have a coup of about 13 people who are holding the best interests of our country hostage so that the biggest thief in their circle can escape justice. And like Michael Cohen said, he does not think Trump will surrender power even if he loses the 2020 election. Myself, I am not even sure there will be an honest 2020 election. It’s that serious to Trump.

In the interest of national security, Trump should be stripped of critical powers until he shows his taxes.

The House now has the power and duty to do oversight as a check and balance to runaway power. That is 100% constitutional. Trump’s not going to supply his taxes anyway. He does not care about the law. He feels he cannot be indicted while in office. He intends to stay in office for life if he can. I’ve been saying this since the day he was elected. Trump’s been in bed with Russian money launderers since the 1980’s with his cash cow casinos.

One reason for that crime exists: tax avoidance. Until we have transparency and the full release of the Mueller report, Trump should not be allowed to pardon anyone associated with him or his campaign. He should be stripped of his war powers as well. Note that today, April 12th 2019, it is reported that Trump told a border official to break the law and he would pardon him! This is him getting caught bribing people. What you don’t realize this is how he operates every single day! Wake up! 

There is currently neither enough confidence in Donald Trump, or in 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 repeatedly shown they can’t be trusted to be honorable. The facts we already know don’t add up any longer to most Americans. And we don’t have the Mueller report. And it’s clear the GOP and Trump’s administration don’t want that to get out.

We really can’t afford all this bickering anymore. It’s shameful and wasteful. In one year we have become the total laughing stock of the planet’s first-world countries. Like I said: maybe they are all suborned. And that should have all Americans worried. 

Until the Mueller investigation is public information, and we are confident Trump has our interest at heart, Trump’s war and pardon powers should immediately be taken away. Congress must now have to sole power to make war.  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 wars and crisis tend to shut down internal investigations. We cannot be rule out that a war or crisis will be created by Trump to keep Trump and his cronies in power. We see they are capable of doing anything for their own interests. We can’t have a suborned executive branch. And seems to be the case.

Time is not our friend here. 2019 in the real make or break year for American democracy. Waiting for 2020 is a fool’s game. The GOP believe we will sit by and wait for an election result. And they intend to fix that election – or create a situation where the election is suspended.
