Donald Trump Using Virus to Solidify Power

wants it to last until the election

Donald Trump is presiding over life or death for millions of people. And still, at his new conferences, Donny always finds a way to reveal his deeply troubled soul. He talks ratings, fake news, phony impeachments, calls Adam Schiff crooked, picks on governors and campaigns – as thousands of Americans die – who did not have to – because Trump did not care enough to prepare. Trump was warned by our medical experts this was coming and Donny still did not prepare. He threw a ban Chinese travel at it, but our medical experts told us that was not going to be enough. Now, who knows how many will die?

And still, Trump keeps smiling at these conferences. He’s striking poses for his fans – playing doctor/authoritarian. And this has to stop or even more will die. Because there is no good excuse for any potus ignoring our experts when he has other people’s lives at stake, we must seriously consider that Trump may be viewing this pandemic as a potential ally in his quest to win 2020.  That takes a real sociopath, but doctors tell us he’s got all the markings of one. And we can see it with our own eyes too. He just does not seem to like people unless they praise him. What on earth is that about except the machinations of the mind of a would-be criminal dictator?

Donald Trump seems not to care how many people die -as long as he is not blamed for any deaths. He is preoccupied with his re-election chances. He refers to people as numbers. “One-hundred thousand would be a great job” because more could have died had he did nothing. As we mostly see it, many less would have died had Trump cared about American lives more than his political survival. A responsible president would have listened to the medical experts warnings and reacted stat back in January.

If this were a war, we wouldn’t stick with the general who let the war cause the death of thousands of Americans, would we? – So just why is Donald Trump in charge of our health and lives now? You can’t believe his words. He lies a lot. In a mortal crisis, one lie is too much. And forgetting the rhetoric, Trump’s actions, or lack thereof, reveal his true thought processes.

Trump simply does not care about us because we are not him. Donald Trump is the only person Donald Trump has ever been seen to actually care for. What a mistake we have made folks. This is madness. The National Defense Act was created to defend our nation’s people. It must be used with or without him to expand testing. That being our best path forward, the Senate must abrogate his presidential powers asap and use our National Defense Act without a presidential approval, if the potus won’t do his job.

There is also an emerging pattern of city contagion versus country contagion. Since Trump is all about his political survival, he can see that in November, it would be to his advantage if people in cities could not vote as easily as people in rural areas. This only favors Donald Trump, his sycophants and the traitorous corporatists that pull their strings. It spells disaster for the American people.

The Bad Math of Re-opening Too Soon

Coronavirus began in Wuhan China by a transmission from bats to humans, with the possibility of an intermediate animal. This was first noticed in the province of Wuhan in November 2019 . Coronavirus disease began with a single patient zero or perhaps a handful of patient zeroes. In under six months, there are now about one million people who are known to have Covid Disease on planet earth today. The actual number is certainly much higher, as one can only be counted as having covid-19 after they are seen to have the disease or have tested positive. And we are simply not testing very much. Why is that?

In less than six months, the virus has expanded by a factor of, at the very least, 10 to 1,000,000. That’s a factor of 100,000 times in under 6 months.

If we re-open now, we are stating not with a one to ten carriers, but potentially 1,000,000 carriers. If you multiply even 10% of those carriers by the same 6-month expansion we have just witnessed, it’s 100,000 times 10,000. Nine zeroes. 1,000,000,000. That’s one billion with the disease and no cure or vaccine in six months. That’s also when our critical election is. One out of eight people on planet earth. That’s an eve of destruction type of a number. Donald Trump knows this and he does not care. This is madness. It must stop today.

The politicization of the coordinated scientific response necessary to avoid a world disaster must stop today. Our county and the world cannot afford to have politics influence our pandemic response in any way. It must now be a purely scientific and logistically strategic response if we are to do our best to fight this virus and avoid a total catastrophe.

Donald Trump has shown his ineptitude as a team builder for the country from day one when he put his son-in-law in charge of way too many important government functions. He has fired our best minds and installed sycophants who have their own dirty secrets to hide. This is all about keeping a sociopath;s secrets from seeing the light of day. This is madness.

People are only valuable to a sociopath/narcissist if they serve the imaginary stories they tell themselves. So I ask why is Trump in charge of our pandemic at all? Why are the doctors not fully in charge? Why does a non-doctor have any say on our pandemic response? Would you let a plumber be in charge of your heart operation? Numbers don’t lie. Look. April 4th, 2020.

The math for the USA will be the worst on the planet, and we’re supposed to be thankful. I don’t feel thankful. As of this April 15, China had 3500 deaths and we have 17000. Our Covid deaths have now equaled the published number of Trump’s daily lies. An American has now died for every lie President Trump has told. And it gets worse. China, a country 3 times larger in population, (which means its 3 times as crowded) – is experiencing a much better per capita outcome than we are expected to have. Sometimes I think we deserve this, sad to say, for leaving a known criminal in office for 3 years.

USA is expected to lose 100,000 souls, if we keep our social distancing in place through summer. China will likely have 5000 deaths when we have out 100, 000. Basically we will have done 60 times worse than China per capita, and Trump tells us he did a great job? Since when is doing 2% as good a China, a country that had no corona warning, a great job?

Donald Trump’s uncaring ineptitude at the helm of our virus response is an ongoing threat to all of us. He threw out a meme that “impeachment may have distracted him” – a little. He straddled that idea to put it in our heads for a reason. He’s going to make it illegal to challenge him very soon. We can’t have this now! There will be other critical life and death decisions.

We need doctors fully in charge of our pandemic response. No Trumps. No Kushners. No sycophants. Since doctors and nurses lives are also at stake, I think they should insist on being in charge or just not show up. That would not last ten minutes. Trump would have to put Fauci fully in charge.

Donald Trump Did Not Prepare for a Pandemic Because Trump Never Plans Ahead for Anything

They call it “prepared” because you have to do something before the bad thing happens to be “pre-pared”. But Donald just does not care enough about anything to prepare. He wings everything. And we are paying a heavy price for his failure to prepare the USA for what we will now endure.

It did not have to be this way. If China lost 5000, and they were first to experience the pandemic, countries with wise rulers should have done better than China, not 100 times worse. This also means if we just ended up doing as good as the Chinese, who had no warning, we would only have lost 2000, not 200,000. Donald Trump’s way of steering our ship may cost us American 198,000 souls. I’m sorry, but this is reckless driving.

We are all watching in horror in these corona press conferences while a mad king struggles with his psyche pretending to care about “America” in the midst of the largest pandemic in 100 years. And our mad king will never stop playing the imaginary game he repeats in his own head and really fight for our causes. Trump wouldn’t know how to even begin that process.

Instead, if he does not like a Governor, he doesn’t call them. He actually said that. He said, “it really doesn’t make any difference”. That’s a quote. Trump said, he doesn’t stop Pence from calling them. This man should not be in charge of our fate any longer in any realm. But if we leave Trump in charge of our virus response we will get what we deserve.

Fellow Americans, this is madness. And this really is the way empires collapse. I have no idea why people on “both sides” here in the USA don’t unite tomorrow to serve our common need to survive this pandemic with as little loss of loved ones as possible.

Fellow Americans. There is only one reason our loved ones are dying in these numbers. There are corporate forces that wanted us divided and Trump did a great job at that. Do not be swayed by the scapegoating and firings of real patriots that will now begin from the Trump administration. That is the dictator’s handbook play now. Divide, weaken and conquer. We must not waiver from our mantra: We are all in this together now. People say “stay safe”. I say “get smart”. I’d say stay smart, but we have not been smart have we?

This war to keep Americans divided did not begin with Trump, but Donald Trump is in charge now of that war now. It’s not a war for Americans’ interests – it is a war against Americans’ interests. I don’t know if it was jealousy for what we had here, or just the plucking of ripe fruit by criminals pretending to be statesmen, but we let it happen here. The goal of that war force is to keep us divided and keep us needy. Big business has intersected with a greedy king to keep everyday Americans powerless and establish a permanent ruling class. That’s the story behind the poor virus response. They like it this way!

April 5th 2020 : What we can expect now from Donald Trump is the following. This week coming up will be really bad and terribly sad for America, which was and is highly unprepared to fight this contagion. He has anointed himself as the head general in this “war” – with his “invisible enemy”. This is not a war. This is a medical crisis brought on by years of neglect by the GOP which Trump now heads up. The own this. But Donny views this pandemic as his “treasure trove”. That’s phrase he used But instead, they will look to change the “chain of command”. That’s why the Navy captain was fired. Trump will seek to make it “dangerous” or “illegal” and punishable by immediate imprisonment ( or worse ) to challenge his as commandeer of the virus response in any way. He can say it’s distracting him and he is needed for the virus fight. This is why he is on the stage every day, – to play “war room”. But Donny Trump is not fighting the virus beyond making sure all that make his presence are tested. He is still fighting for one thing: to stay in power so he is not prosecuted for his crimes, against the American people. That’s you and me. And we have to speak up now.

Fellow Americans. Fake News is dead if we want that now. Coronavirus response requires we be scientific and empathetic if we are to survive this pandemic and remain the United States of America. Donny Trump has neither of these characteristics and we all know that.

This virus will kill a lot people, much more than it had to here due to a mad king’s uncaring ineptitude, but coronavirus will also kill many of our pre-corona ways of being. The age of fake news can be one welcome casualty of the pandemic. We must welcome that death. Respect for science and expertise must rule now. If coronavirus can do that much for us, it can perhaps save the species. People will need the real facts now so they can arm themselves. Something dies. Something is born. That’s the way of nature. We must make sure something good is born from all the “death” we will experience due to a mad king;s ineptitude.

Wouldn’t it be nice if our best and brightest were solely in charge when we had health emergencies? Wouldn’t it be nice if all Americans knew that this country was doing its level best to keep us safe so our children grow up healthy?

We must all stay home. This will hit those without savings hardest. Those with money will emerge poorer as well but they will get through. People will try to game the system. War profiteering is the standard in Trump’s criminal presidency. We can’t let that be okay. Watch the GOP politicians. They are notorious during these bailout cycles.

People’s appetites for big gatherings have gone away, and probably for a few years. Live sports? It’s going to be made-for-TV only for a long while. I have no appetite to watch a basketball game during this pandemic. Do you? Trump talks like we have to get back to work, but something tells me our appetites have changed permanently, and many business models that worked pre-virus, will become permanent casualties of our changed appetites.

This is madness. Trump loves to say “nobody could see this coming”. What on earth does that mean? There were plenty of people who saw this coming. The doctors in the World Health Organization warned him In January and the first reports were in December. A grocery chain in Texas has prepared for this since January, and they are doing pretty well with it. Google it.

Donald Trump knew this virus was coming to kill us and did not think for one second about American lives. He though political games. He thought “treasure trove.” Our elected president used his criminal survivalist gut about a virus. He was in trouble with Russia. Impeachment was on the front page. He asked himself, “maybe this virus can help me?” Trump tells himself, ”I’m going down for my crimes if I’m not re-elected.” That’s what this is all about now anyway. It’s about keeping Donald Trump out of jail. And we all are suffering and our loved ones dying for this.  How crazy this is? Put Pence in charge today.

This virus does not have a soul. Like all living things, it seeks to stay alive. Coronavirus grows inside the bodies of other life forms. It originated in bats. Bats like to hang together in the dark and in large numbers. So this virus was designed to spread from bodies that hang close and it does not particularly light sunlight. Coronavirus’s shape is like a weapon. It’s a ball with spikes emanating like spokes in all directions. It sticks to cells like a sticker you pick up in the brush. Coronavirus injects its dna into other cells through the ends of its spikes. That’s how it takes over another body – cell by cell. Coronavirus deploys like a quick cancer.

If the virus stays within one person, it either kills that person or that person wins the fight and the virus is vanquished by one’s antibodies. Coronavirus is a very formidable and clever little enemy. It knows not to kill the young. They will be old in due time. It waits. It acts as a herd thinner for the weak. But that’s not perfect math. It can take anyone. That’s the singular way of our common enemy and we now have to out-think it. We’ve got the brains over this virus. We can beat anything we set our minds to. And we need a leader who really cares and is not distracted or distract-able. I’d say we deserve such a leader, but that’s not true. We have the leader we deserve now. Maybe we will deserve better soon.

Since coronavirus spreads by touching from one animal to another, if we just stay apart – especially through the summer with its light – we can outwit this pandemic and it can be almost gone before next winter. But we have a president who knows that staying apart will slow the economy and that’s not what he is there for. Trump is there to make money for the forces that want Americans to be divided and weak.

The actual job of being president requires he delegate our most serious tasks to our most serious experts. We do have those in the USA. Serious and knowledgeable experts. They saw this coming and told our president, and now he owns this.

Why is a potus like Trump so dangerous during a pandemic? Trump needs to be surrounded by people who are criminal enough to keep his crimes secrets. These inner circle associates are even allowed to do their own crimes, as long as they keep it fairly quiet and keep the others’ crimes secret. And what kind of real expert works this way?

Donald Trump wakes up every morning and remembers he needs to win another election. He knows he may have to face the music when his reign in over. Fight. Fight on. That is who he is. Like the virus he has a single purpose.

We can’t have this now. We are fighting a totally different war than Trump is fighting. We are fighting a war for our lives and the lives of our family members and Donald Trump is fighting a war to stay in power.

I am hereby calling for a bill in Congress to be advanced banning Donald Trump from officiating in any way in our war with the virus. Pence will do fine for now. Pence seems to be taking it seriously. At least he is not a disturbed man-child.

It’s time to save ourselves. We’ll need both sides unified to demand this now. The lovers and fighters. And right now. This week or many more will die than need to. Maybe someone you know and will miss. And then you won’t even forgive yourself. We have our common enemy now. Its name is coronavirus. Let’s unify to defeat the virus – left and right. And lets unify to insist on a caring empathetic president. Honestly, anyone of us could do a better job handling this crisis. Anyone of us would just let the experts handle it all and give the experts of our full support. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to do that. Just a caring soul.

Let’s insist Pence finish this job. He may even do a half decent job. Trump should not be allowed to talk to Pence about this in any way either. Trump and the virus must be quarantined from each other. And neither can a Kushner or any other Trump be involved with the virus response. I hear Kushner has a hand in the respirator business. Enough!

Trump can stay on as president and preside over other affairs and even run for president again. We don’t care. But we can’t have him playing a game in his mind, while running this country in a deadly serious war with a virus.

If millions die for Trump to stay on as president – you know – the way he spoke about his “good friend” Chairman Chi – president for life, – so be it for Donny. That is the character of the man holding the most important job on planet earth, at least to Americans.

This is madness. Trump is orchestrating our virus response by playing it by ear and with no regard for the lives of others. Just let Fauci make all decisions and let Pence finish the virus response.

If need be, use the 25th Amendment, but in a slightly altered way. Use it to get Trump off this virus response project. He can even stay on as president as long as he stays away from the response with no financial interest, investment or profit on anything coronavirus. Pence and Fauci can be in charge. Trump can go back and play golf. No rallies. Watch the Kushners too.

Why the GOP Does Not Want Good Healthcare for Americans

 Now

AMERICA ONLY WON WW2 BECAUSE WE WORKED TOGETHER AS A TEAM.

In WW2 we let FDR have a 3rd term because we knew we were at war and could not afford to be divided. We can’t afford this inner division today either – but we don’t seem to know that. Dems must show the American people they can unite their party if they expect the country to believe they can unite the country. Both sides will respect that. After all, if they can’t unite the “left” how can they unite the country?

We are at war in the USA. We are at war with foreign enemies that want to exploit our riches. We are at war with Trump’s GOP party selling our rights and assets to the highest bidders. We are at war with Mother Nature, who seems to want to get rid of us for our polluting ways.  And at the same time, we are at war with each other, which makes it difficult for Americans to prevail at any effort.

I am old enough to remember first-hand the spirit of the WW2 generation. They were not the greed is good generation nor the it’s all about me generation. The greatest generation citizens resigned to do their parts to defeat German Nationalism with a spirit of teamwork and without ego. Now we have a combination of corporatism and American Nationalism to defeat. And they are about to shut the door on democracy. The moment the Senate acquitted – it was really over. Praying for votes in this rigged environment is not a plan. Hoping there will be a fair election is not a plan. It is a hope or a prayer.

Trump knows exactly how long he has to completely take this government over – from the justice department installations to the election fixing with our enemies. Trump is working every day to have our democracy be gone before the 2020 election. Why? Trump knows the term that follows his presidential term may be a prison term.

Love like a Democrat. Fight like a Republican.

Reduce National Maximum Interest Rate to 1% During Crisis

Solving our virus problem hinges on social distancing to reduce contagion. But an economic depression that hits us like a tsunami will tax our economic system so hard it will tax our ability to maintain social distancing and optimize our healthcare response. It’s a Catch 22 – or more appropriately – a Sophie’s Choice. Let the economy go on as it was and millions will die. We’ve heard as high as ten million in the USA alone. There’s a delicate balance that has to be struck. We have to help people weather this storm. Where do we start?

There is one easy to effect and sure way to help people and companies at the same time: reduce maximum interest rates to 1% – 2% nationally by decree. That simple act would give “companies” the time they need to wait it out. That interest break would also give a lot of “people” the time they need to wait this out. Not all people for sure. But this will actually help all Americans regardless of financial status. Interest rates create financial pressure. It’s totally ridiculous for anyone to be able to collect interest above 1% and profiteer in this crisis when the Fed Rate is .25%.

This simple, charitable and wise action would set in motion the domino effect needed to help relax tension a bit for everyone at the same time. And we desperately need this relaxation.

Let me cite one example. I own a business in Los Angeles and I rent an office. My landlord, a true gem by the way, just told me not to pay the rent for April. I was going to ask, but I did not have to. Very human of him.

But he has a mortgage to pay too. If his bank rate went down to 1% that’s going to make it easier for him to continue to pass that break on to me. Every obligation, from mortgages to leases to accounts payable, revolves around interest rates. If interest rates were suddenly gone or minimized, it gives us all the time we need to wrap our heads around our virus issue and our economic depression that is inevitable if we are to keep the contagion rate down.

I did go to Wharton School and shared a class with Donald Trump. He paid absolutely no attention to what was being taught. I was no honor student, but I did learn a bit about how this all works. Interest rates are key. Mortgage rates should immediately go down to 1% across the board. It solves a lot.

I’m going to leave this here, keep it short and spend my time circulating this memo, hoping it finds its way up to people who can make this happen. Lowering our collective financial temperature will solve many of our imminent problems – medical, social and financial – in one fell swoop.

———————–

PS. I am also 99% sure that the Kushners and Trumps of the world won’t like this solution. They are landlords. They love foreclosures. It’s how they acquired a lot of their properties, on the backs of others. And they can afford to stay home and not catch the virus. They even know if they do get the bug, they will get the best medical attention. So watch as they don’t quite do the right things in the days ahead.

Get this circulating. It is very doable. Trump’s talking about “companies” because the right companies will pay him off in his foreign bank accounts for slush funds sent their way. And that is also why he has not used the National Defense Act yet. He has not found a way to get paid off for the contracts yet. He’s working on it. You can be sure of that. 

Corona Virus May Fast-Track Bernie’s Socio-Financial Revolution

The corona virus pandemic is even more dangerous to Americans and the American economy because so many Americans don’t have funds to survive for six months without income. It’s been reported that four hundred dollars is the average American’s savings. That is not accurate. But these are accurate stats.

The top 1% of households in the U.S. by income have a median savings of a whopping $1.1 million across a variety of saving accounts. They will be fine financially and they don’t need a handout. The bottom 20% by income have no savings and the second lowest 20% of income earners have just $26,450 saved. This is the same group that are losing their jobs now. It was never a great economy for 40% of all Americans. That’s been a GOP lie all along.

Great financial disparities exaggerate the dangers of this pandemic. If 90% of Americans could afford to stay home for six months, the virus would not spread as much – and the impact of this pandemic on life, finances and quality of life would be minimized. So the finances of the average America affects the health and well-being of all Americans, rich, middle-class or poor.

My father used to counsel me about taking shortcuts with an old Russian proverb: When the snow melts, the sh*t will show. That’s exactly what has happened with the corona virus pandemic. The snow has melted, the curtains have been pulled back – and the frailty of an economy that never worked very for about half of Americans has been exposed.

The virus does not know or care how much money you have. So those who get sick in the lower 40% of the economy will spread it to the top 60% – and vice-versa. We are fighting a virus – not each other. We are all in that fight together.

It’s clear that the financial fortunes of the top 60%, and particularly the top 1%, have been built of the backs of those in the middle and lower financial classes. That has all come crashing down in just a few days as we adjust to an economy with no large gatherings or close contacts and which now includes shutting down many workplaces. The gig economy, which was never very secure to begin with, will be hit hard – though food delivery may pick up. So what do we expect those who are hurt the most to learn from this pandemic?

This much should be clear. The grievances with the status quo among those hurt the most by the pandemic with be greatly magnified when compared to the grievances of the financially secure. I don’t think it will take long for the working class to conclude that Bernie’s social-financial revolution is the medicine they need most.

There may soon come a time that the working class collectively figures out that those who have been taking the greatest advantage of their work have always been a danger to their lives and the lives of their families. They sort of know that anyway, down deep. – But if their situation gets truly dire, that’s when a more violent revolution becomes a very real possibility. That’s also why we see gun sales going up.

It’s becoming clearer every day that the Trumps will not willingly be left to control this country’s destiny. My sense is that Trump family will soon be categorized much like Marie Antoinette and Louis 14th were during the French Revolution – as a danger to the commonwealth. But Trump will try to take credit for any recovery we make as a society, even though his efforts came at least 30 days too late, largely due to his ego being his most important consideration. We must be careful not to be cast as being uncooperative to the corona virus relief effort, which Trump will try to do. Though we should and will work with him on corona virus relief acts, that does not give him a pass for his past crimes, nor for anything his will do – and predators like Trump will try to take advantage of the crisis and the disadvantaged – as he as always done.

The more it becomes clear that Trump will not win re-election, the more it bodes well for Bernie Sanders’ ideas. We all know Joe Biden cares, but also that he is not a revolutionary thinker. Joe is there to be a Trump slayer. If a Trump slayer is not needed, Bernie’s messages that promote more financial parity among American classes is going to gain traction. Watch this space.

PS. Yes. I know it’s coronavirus. I just think that’s a weird long word. I prefer to use corona virus as two words. That’s how most people think about it anyway.

Why Joe Biden Is Winning Over the Hearts of Americans

If Donald Trump were not president I would have spent the last 3.5 years doing much more of what I wanted to do before I realized this country was in big trouble. How about you?

Joseph Aronesty @EnglishCodeWord

Joe Biden essentially won the Democratic Party’s nomination in one unbelievable turn of events that occurred on March 2nd between 4 and 5 PM PST. When Pete Buttigieg announced he was pulling out of the race to endorse Joe, he made a truly touching speech. Pete’s speech was followed by Joe’s speech, wherein he he said Pete reminded him of departed son Beau. It choked me up. I am sure I was not alone. And that’s the moment I knew Joe was going to win the nomination. And I knew why: Joe has heart.

“Heart” is what Donald Trump is so glaringly lacking. And we all – on both sides – suddenly realized that undeniable truth and how important having heart is during an emergency. For the record, Hillary also seemed to lack heart. That’s really why she lost. Great speeches and ideas don’t mean as much as sincerity, because we all know how easy it is to lie or make claims that won’t get done when stumping to win votes. I also felt Elizabeth Warren, when she attacked Bloomberg, a man willing to bankroll the entire Democratic Party just to get rid of Donald Trump, showed a lack of heart in the way she attacked him on the debate stage. And I love Warren’s ideas.

I know Clyburn’s endorsement set the pendulum in motion days before Pete’s endorsement. But it was Joe’s heartfelt manner which suddenly felt like the thing we have been missing for 4 years since Trump-ism took hold on the airwaves. And it was so welcome that it changed everything. Joe shined that light without even trying. He was being sincere. And we miss sincerity here in the USA on both sides. Don’t we?

When I entered the business world in 1972 I still recall my father telling me people will give you a chance to win them over as long as you come off with sincerity. And since this blog was originally intended to be about etymology – or wordology – as I like to call it – let me break down the word SINCERE for you in my own unique wordology way.

SIN and SINE are known old Latin words for “without”. CERE is the root of the word CEREBRAL or HEAD. SINCERE means without thought ( for one’s self).

And on that standard Donald Trump has failed miserably to come off as sincere. In fact, Trump seems to do everything with only thought’s for his own self. Donald Trump exudes the polar opposite of sincerity. That’s why he is known as a narcissist. He has always been that way too. Even in college, where I knew him (Penn 67) , he was the original “it’s all about me” guy. He threw a rushing sophomore out of a mixer for dancing the mashed potatoes better than he could and getting all the girl attention.

Trump’s badly botched coronavirus speech reminded us all he is not the right person to manage a health crisis. Since he has surrounded himself with self-serving sycophants, Trump does not have anyone close to him who can really be trusted to lead us out of this mess. His heartless GOP just tried to knock down a House bill to provide sick leave for people affected by corona. I think they realize how bad that sounded and are back-tracking to fund a deal. But it’s more out of financial necessity than from heart. Their dark hearts have already been exposed. And yes, November seems like an eternity to wait for new leadership. The stock market seemed to know that too.

On the other hand, Joe Biden will surround himself with real, time-tested experts – the way our government used to function under Obama, Bush, Clinton, Reagan and before. Why am I sure of this? Because Joe Biden actually cares about others and he cares about his legacy as a public servant. The idea of serving the public is totally foreign to Donald Trump and his GOP sycophants.

There will be a lot of work needed to undo the damage done in four years by an inept, uncaring, heartless man who cheated to win an election and then ran the US government like a piggy bank for his own family interests. But right now, we have a country to save.

When you come down to it, Trump is just a pin-up doll for the Citizens United folks who wants big business to have more power than people. Those days are coming to an end. We have a unifying principle now – surviving a pandemic.

Practice social distancing. Vote Blue up and down.

That map looks suspiciously like the online dictatorship vs. democracy map. Same exact colors too. Find it at planetrulers.com I still think that’s what’s been driving Trump since Helsinki. Putin showed him “very powerfully” how close he was to taking over the world with a few dictators in control of it all. Read about that delicate balance in world power and see that map original HERE. https://englishcode.wordpress.com/2019/03/30/dictator-map/

Why does Donald Trump have that map in those exact colors?

I have just now written to planetrulers.com to see if they created this map and its colors or got it from somewhere else. I will report their reply, if they reply. This is what I wrote:

https://englishcode.wordpress.com/2020/03/12/bidens-heart/
LOOK AT WHAT TRUMP IS HOLDING UP! IT IS YOUR DICTATOR MAP – SAME EXACT COLOR – CHANGED FOR CORONA VIRUS.
I HAVE BEEN TELLING PEOPLE THAT A MAP LIKE THIS WAS SHOWN TO TRUMP IN HELSINKI by PUTIN – “very powerfully”.
I was make an educated guess based on his body language, having known him. But now I think Trump is indeed working on global domination with Putin’s help. Why else would he have your map – if it is your map?

MY QUESTION TO YOU: DID YOU CREATE THIS MAP AND DECIDE UPON THE COLORS? OR DID YOU GET THIS FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE and if so WHERE? This is a TELL. Please get back so I can share it with lawmakers.

We Need That WW2 Teamwork Spirit Again Right Now

America Only Won WW2 Because We Worked Together as a Team.

In WW2 we let FDR have a 3rd term because we knew we were at war and could not afford to be divided. We can’t afford this inner division today either – but we don’t seem to know that. Dems must show the American people they can unite their party if they expect the country to believe they can unite the country. Both sides will respect that. After all, if they can’t unite the “left” how can they unite the country?

We are at war in the USA. We are at war with foreign enemies that want to exploit our riches. We are at war with Trump’s GOP party selling our rights and assets to the highest bidders. We are at war with Mother Nature, who seems to want to get rid of us for our polluting ways.  And at the same time, we are at war with each other, which makes it difficult for Americans to prevail at any effort.

I am old enough to remember first-hand the spirit of the WW2 generation. They were not the greed is good generation nor the it’s all about me generation. The greatest generation citizens resigned to do their parts to defeat German Nationalism with a spirit of teamwork and without ego. Now we have a combination of corporatism and American Nationalism to defeat. And they are about to shut the door on democracy. The moment the Senate acquits – it’s really over. Praying for votes in this rigged environment is not a plan. Hoping there will be a fair election is not a plan. It is a hope or a prayer.

Trump knows exactly how long he has to completely take this government over – from the justice department installations to the election fixing with our enemies. Trump is working every day to have our democracy be gone before the 2020 election. Why? Trump knows the term that follows his presidential term may be a prison term.

TEAMWORK

The two remaining viable candidates can meet in a room after the next debate and let’s settle on who will be the Democratic candidates for president, vice president, chief of staff and district attorney. There is a place for all the candidates in a new administration if they want it. If Biden prevails, Warren and Bernie’s message must not be ignored. They must set aside their egos. There is no place for someone who just “wants” to be president. We have that guy now. Mike Bloomberg has already signed on to being a team player to defeat Trump-ism. Thank you Mike!

MAGA people know they are being lied to. They still don’t know who will be there for them on our side because right now – we don’t even know. I used to think that was a bad thing. With Mike’s money, maybe it’s not so bad. Trump can’t attack both candidates at the same time quite so easily. But expect this to get real ugly in the last two weeks. That’s when he beat Hillary – and mainly in the last three days – just the way Biden surged. People have short memories for politics. Trump knows this. So expect shenanigans galore in October.

Each Team America player has a special purpose within this total teamwork concept. Biden – for his compassionate, people-person unifying style, but also for his experience in “being there”. Warren – for her progressive ideas on healthcare etc., and to keep Bernie’s grassroots energy in the game. Pete – for his brilliant, eloquent speaking, youth and appeal to servicemen. Kamala – to go after the crooks when this is all over – which will be crucial to making sure this does not happen again in our lifetimes.

Love like a Democrat. Fight like a Republican.
