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/
www.planetrulers.com – use a google search –
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.

The Next Few Weeks Will Decide the Fate of American Democracy

Waiting for November is a Fool’s Game

The Senate trial of Donald Trump begins January 21. 2020. The GOP Senators control the balance of power. Although 23 of them are up for election, November is a long way off. Whatever happens in the next 30 days, during the trial, will not be the pressing issues when November rolls around.

Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, clearly partners in crime, are focused on stealing and holding the mantle of US government and democracy. If Trump is acquitted, they will spend the next six months sowing confusion and discord so this trial, which they hope to turn into a sham with no facts and witnesses, will be nearly forgotten by then. They know what all con men know. A voting public that is is struggling to keep ends met, has a very short attention span.

So it is up to we the people, those who want to conserve the US democracy, Constitution and rule of law, to treat the next thirty days as if our democracy depends on it. I’m sorry to use the “cancer” meme – being a rogue cell disease survivor myself – but it is appropriate. Trump-ism is metastatic now. It has its own enforcer – Bill Barr. The refusal of senators to even recognize the disease of Trump-ism resembles the way cancers fool the immune system. Waiting for November is a gamble that poses a high risk of death for the US democracy.

These are the states that house the senators that need to be targeted by their constituents. Sadly, they represent only 34% of the US population. But take heart. There are only 24 senators to petition, and they have shown us all they care about is staying in office. And if that is all they care about, that presents a path forward. And one of them, Doug Jones in Alabama, is a Democrat.

So in the next two weeks, we only need to show 23 people they have no chance of being re-elected if they will not allow witnesses, and documents and then, if the evidence is clear, vote to remove what all Americans know down-deep is a traitorous, uncaring, inept, greed-oriented, criminal POTUS, who is suborned by his past crimes and aligned with dictators, oligarchs and corporatism.

I am asking that the focus of groups like Indivisible, the Lincoln Group and others – start today. All focus should be on reaching the constituents in the states on this list. The rest of the country already wants the full truth to come out. No sense preaching to the choir.

Thank You

Below are links to my most relevant posts over the last three years of Trump-ism. They explain how we got here – and how we can get out this dark place. It begins with we the people. What are we going to do to preserve American democracy? Right now, our focus needs to be on 24 state senators.

Trump and Putin: Partners in the Biggest Crime in World History

We Need That WW2 Teamwork Spirit Again Right Now

What Does 2020 Look Like After the Senate Acquits?

Financial Criminals: the Masterminds Behind Most of the World’s Problems

Election Meddling by Foreigners is an Attack on Our Commonwealth

“Cyber” is the New “War” and Putin is Cyber Warfare’s First Master

Trump’s Main Problem – Cheating To Win

Election Meddling by Foreigners Is an Attack on Our Commonwealth

What is our commonwealth? It is the resources we share as Americans. Our roads, our national parks - and yes - our constitutionally mandated system of one vote for every citizen in free and fair elections. 

In essence, this is a plan to get Trump to stand down and resign. If you feel this presents a winning idea, please get this message to people with larger mics or express this meme to them in your own words.

TREASON IS DEFINED AS ACT OF BETRAYAL DURING WAR. 

What constitutes “WAR” is not defined in Constitution! The nature of wars change over time with technology. Today a CYBER WAR IS REAL WAR! And we are LOSING THIS CYBER WAR with TRUMP at the helm.

WHAT IS A WAR BUT AN EFFORT TO TAKE SOMETHING FROM ANOTHER SOVEREIGN COUNTRY? We have the Mueller Report saying Russia attacked our elections in a sweeping systematic way. 

LET’S DECLARE THE RUSSIAN AGGRESSION IN THE 2016 NATIONAL ELECTIONS TO HAVE BEEN AN ACT OF CYBER WAR!

Let’s declare meddling in our 2020 elections to be an act of war against our commonwealth as well. And let’s not be afraid to use the word war when referring to election meddling. The GOP would have us believe that it’s normal or perhaps a good thing. They are already advancing that meme.

Can you imagine Trump saying that protecting our elections is a bad idea? We can get GOP base supporters to agree with this.  The GOP base won’t stand for selling out to Russia. And this is the week to do it. Timing!

IF ELECTION MEDDLING IS SIMPLY PERCEIVED by Trump’s audience AS AN “ACT OF WAR” IT MAKES THE ACTIONS OF TRUMP, BARR, MULVANEY, GUILIANI, POMPEO AND MANY OTHER GOP LOYALISTS – TREASONOUS. 

To those that say “we do this to other countries” – I say, if we do, we must stop! The world is watching for the USA to lead again. We lead via the moral high ground. The planet is so disappointed in our presidency – and if we don’t do something about it soon, they will also blame the character of our people for the damage he is doing to the order and trajectory of the planet.

To those who ask, “what retaliatory steps would be in order if elections meddling occurs again?” – I say automatic and severe economic sanctions that last 4 years (not military responses) would be proper here. Players in the dis-information game must know there will be a heavy price to pay for interfering in or attempting to influence our national elections.

Bring it up in the house. Get in on the news. Talk about it. Create the meme: Election meddling by foreigners is an Act of Cyber War.

Do you think the American electorate won’t respect this? They are begging for this! Both sides will respect whoever advances this meme. And there is our national unity – at last! Americans want to believe in democracy. But how can they with what they see and hear?

What I am saying is that the most important people to convince are Trump’s base – and they don’t mind a little bit of incendiary language. In fact, they voted for that language and against wussiness. And so far – all they see on our side are wusses – in their minds. But tell them the POTUS is allowing this country to be attacked and does not want that to stop – well that is a game changer if they believe it.

THEN ITS DONE. The game show presidency will be over. It’s not like we are attacking Trump. We are just declaring what RUSSIA DID was an act of war. It was, right? What is a war but an effort to take something from another sovereign country?

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX! THINK likes it’s WW2.  Think like a TEAM!
We may have to do is LIMIT TRUMP’S WAR AND PARDON POWERS during impeachment! That may not easy. But do #1 and the rest may be easy.

Turn the GOP & MAGA folk by appealing to their patriotism. If we can’t get Trump to resign by Christmas, next year will be too late.

Honestly, I think Trump wants to make a deal to step down. Let get Trump pay something to step down – like surrender the DC Hotel! It’s cheap! He will take it! Just ask him. Out by Christmas. We get Pence. Fine. We can coordinate to stop investigations on him as much as we can if he makes a deal and steps down.

Trump signaled for such a deal on Ukraine, but the right ears did not hear the fullness of what he meant to say. I like Nancy Pelosi. He was hoping she was a crook like him. That was a signal. They need to understand his code. I was sort of inside his world at one stage of my life in AC – so I listen between the lines and lies. Trump knows what we are seeing is the tip of the iceberg in his life of crime. He will do ANYTHING to keep everything from coming out. That makes him a threat to our national security. And that cannot stand!

The USA’s enemies have real dirt on POTUS. After what we saw him pull out of Syria, it’s clear they are flexing their muscles and using that dirt against Trump – and more importantly against us – the citizens of the USA. Expect more of the same as these investigations get closer to full disclosure.

One more goal – for national security. War powers should reside with Congress and the Generals while impeachment is ongoing. This is just common sense. I should not have to explain the wisdom in that check on his power.

WAR POWERS SHOULD RESIDE WITH CONGRESS AND THE GENERALS WHILE IMPEACHMENT IS ONGOING.

Talk to your rep about declaring election meddling by foreigners to be an Act of War. That undoes everything for this thief of a POTUS.

People ask me WHY Trump is the way he is. I have one answer. Please read the following posts to see how this started and the strategy we need and are currently lacking to defeat Trumpism.

The Druglord Sacklers and Slumlord Trumps Have Something In Common

Druglord Sacklers behind Oxycontin epidemic – The Trumps also won’t let us see their finances

The Trumps and the Sacklers have something in common. Both families are now actively trying to hide their assets, wealth and tax reports from US government scrutiny by exporting their dollars to foreign bank accounts. It’s called money laundering.  

The Sacklers are trying to avoid law suit payments to the people they have hurt and killed with their drugs. The Trumps have many other reasons to launder money. None of them are good.

It’s clear anyone who engages in money laundering knows it’s a crime and is okay with the risk of engaging in crimes for personal profit. A president who has crossed that line will continue to engage in crimes to cover up past and ongoing crimes. It’s quite a risky line to cross. Most citizens are honorable and would not even consider money laundering to save taxes.

This should also be clear. Any person who engages in money laundering does not deserve any public trust and does not deserve to be in any public office – let alone the highest office in the USA.

There are only a few subsets of people that are okay with money laundering.

  • The uber greedy. The Trumps are in that subset, along with the Sackers and the Jeffrey Epsteins of the world.
  • Lowly criminals – people trying to raise their wealth without caring about what laws or obstacles stand in their way. Paul Manafort would fit that bill. Donald Trump would have been in that subset in 1987 – when he owned a casino and did not want to pay his fair share of taxes. Russian mob players are in that subset too.
  • Dictators like Vladimir Putin, MBS and Chairman Kim.

Why would a dictator want or need to do money laundering? That is easy. Dictators all run kleptocracies.

When autocrats steal money and basic rights like free and fair elections from their own people they know they are committing crimes against humanity. They really don’t want to get caught. Autocrats may not be historians, but everyone knows what happened to Marie Antoinette and the Romanovs. So out of prudence, they hide their stolen money in foreign banks accounts so it’s safer from whatever laws and revolutionary forces might still exist in their own countries. They try to keep stolen money out of sight. They don’t want public outrage to get out of control.

For these reasons and others, all dictators are money launderers. There are long-standing financial support systems for money launderers. There is a network of banks that are friendly to money launderers in places like Cyprus, Panama, Switzerland and the Bahamas. This is not new. The Russian Mafia is one group of money launderers loyal to Russia, but they are not alone.  This also why Trump does not show his taxes. The Trumps clearly have plenty to hide or they would release tax returns.

Putin, Chairmen Kim and Trump are currently operating as kleptomaniacs propped up by the seals and law enforcement agencies of their governments. What do you think the air force stopping at his golf resort was all about?

Many don’t know Vladimir Putin was elected in a democratic Russia. Once in power, in just a few years, he stole about 150 billion dollars, often killing his opponents. His next move was to declare Russia’s press, the Pravda was fake news. He shut Pravda down so he could continue to hide his crimes from the public. I’m sure Trump would like to shut down CNN and MSNBC.

Money launderers have a saying they operate by: They only know what you tell them. Trump said that once early in his presidency. It went right over everyone’s head. Not mine. I knew what that meant to Trump. I had heard it growing up in the jewelry business.  For me, it was about how you “romance stones”. They only know what you tell them meant one could make up beautiful stories about jewels and that is all the customer would know. I never bought into that meme. I found a way to be honest about my selling. I was a Penn graduate – and had that dignity even as a young entrepreneur. But I knew it went on, and was effective. Truly, those who told the best stories sold better than I did. Trump bought into that meme.

This is exactly why Trump also says the press is the enemy of the people. A free press educates the public so that the truth is clear, Then the lies that an autocrat tells won’t take root in the public. Trump knows silencing the press worked for Putin. It also worked for Stalin and Hitler.

Yes. America is stronger than Russia was when Putin took over. But be aware: No country in all of history has ever been impervious to demise. 

My fellow Americans, does any of this sound like what we want here in the USA?

The Russians have long had Trump’s back. Trump held Miss Universe pageants in Moscow. There were plans to build a Trump Tower Moscow. This is why Helsinki had that private meeting. They needed private space to talk about old money deals. This is also why Pompeo did not get invited in. Autocrats don’t want anyone to know the scope of their crimes. They only know what you tell them applies to all except the most inner family –members. In Trump’s case that’s Kushner, Don Jr. and Ivanka.

Putin has the dictator map (below) all figured out. He knows he can’t get China to align with Russia. But if he can get Trump and the USA – then essentially he has the balance of power over the entire globe. That is Putin’s plan. Trump functions as a useful idiot in that plan. 

And now it’s up to us – Americans on both sides united – to stop the world’s autocrats grand plan because we know – what they want does not end well for any of us. Ask people living in Russia, North Korea or Venezuela how their dictatorships are working for them. You know that answer. We know that answer, We have never wanted that for the USA since day one in 1776.

Trump is a player in what is called the Russian Mafia.Putin is its kingpin.Putin can seize Trump’s Russian-parked money if Trump does not help Putin secure his money in the US. It’s quid pro quo. They have each other’s backs. Criminals work that way.

Paul Manafort was overheard asking if getting Trump elected would square a debt with a Russian oligarch. That’s a quid pro quo. Trump is just as guilty as Manafort when it comes to financial crimes. They all play this game together. As long as they can keep their foreign bank accounts hidden – this will continue.

This is the real problem on the planet. Not terrorism. Not even hunger. Those are both driven by the greedy money launderers’ plans and we have ways to address these problems if only we can throw off the yokes of the autocrats.

Money laundering criminals are the masterminds behind most of the physical crimes against humanity.Now that group includes the druglord Sacklers.

In Russia, everyone knows Putin is a criminal dictator. They are mostly okay with it. They have no choice. Voicing opposition is dangerous. But in the USA, a criminal president is not okay.  We still have a free press in spite of Trump’s calls of “fake news”.

I’m not so sure about the justice system. Trump main accomplishment so far has been installing administrators and justices that are corruptible.  We all saw Trump appointing a loyalist to be AG – so why we allowed without forcing Barr recuse himself seemed stupid and naive. Having justices on your side is a huge advantage for any dictator. Trump knows how Putin took Russia.

And Putin has a huge advantage in the spy vs. spy game. Putin can tell Trump exactly what to say and do.  If Trump does not comply, the dirt Putin has on Trump can be leaked and/or his assets in Russia could be seized. The private Helsinki meeting was also about Putin “powerfully” explaining to Trump what will happen if he does not live up to his end of the bargain made for Putin’s 2016 election help. That’s why we didn’t get the notes. 

Americans and GOP particularly, know this. Coddle autocrats at our own risk. Autocrats always have back-up plans. And those could include war, catastrophe that forces martial law, hacking the grid on Election Day and/or the fixing of elections.

The GOP is okay with all this crime because they know they can’t win an honest presidential election in 2020. So it is our job as US and global citizens to raise our voices and vote out the GOP at every level.

If we only accomplish only those two things – we can get back to addressing the real monsters in the room – climate change and income inequality.

G7 Leaders: We Need Your Help Now the Way You Needed the USA in 1943

It’s time for Macron and Merkel to help America our the way we did for them in WW2. Trump needs to turn the USA into an autocracy to keep his stolen money safe from those he has robbed, which is essentially the American Commonwealth.

Please tell Donald Trump, who is himself sold out to big oil, that you want no part of a G7 meeting at his golf resort. He is making a laughing stock out of your mission anyway. You would do us a favor to just say the USA is out until Trump is gone. And there is a good chance that Trump will not be in office next year anyway.

One bold statement on the world stage now would do as much for the USA and democracy that out troops did at Dunkirk. It’s time to pay that debt forward. I hope you will consider this.

Donald Trump. If you really want the G7 at Doral then do it legally. Sell the club. Not to family. Then you will be fine with this. Of course, no one expects you to do the right thing for the USA. Not your thing. Never was – was it?

The rest was written during the 2019 G7 meeting.

Having just offered to buy Greenland, Donald Trump is headed off for the G7 as if he belongs there with well-intended leaders and scientists. I just wonder why he is even being allowed to go make his presence there. Is the G7 no longer a serious venture?

mad-trump

Our planet needs climate coordination more than ever now, and the G7 leaders are allowing the POTUS, a major climate denier, to show up and spout his destructive memes on the world stage? It makes no sense.

To the G7 leaders: If you are serious about global warming, blackball Donald Trump from the G7 now or at the first sign that he wants to be a bull in your china shop.

It’s not too late. In fact, letting the Trumps take the trip only to be turned away would be exactly what the Trumps deserves. Shaming him on the world stage will actually help the GOP sellouts turn on Trump. They are privately getting warm to the idea. But they are mostly cowards. Make it easier for them.

If Trump can’t be seen to have a shot at winning in 2020, the GOP will stray – and soon. And if we get rid of Trump, then your work at the G7 becomes more do-able. So sending the Trumps from G7 may save the work of the G7. And it would makes you look serious about the tasks ahead. It’s a win/win. 

G7 leaders: Help your American friends. The timing is good now, especially after Greenland. It’s cyber war. This won’t take bullets. Just words. The dignity and holiness of the G7 agenda will be severely undercut by the mere presence of the Trumps at the G7 meetings. Macron: you have no idea how weak you look embracing Donald Trump. Trump does not respect his office of presidency, so what does it say when you show him respect?

Democracy and science are now under attack.  It is one basic attack – on truth. This attack is antithetical to the G7 mission. You should not allow one the major attackers to be part of your serious work. You would be “koshering” a major science denier and devaluing the sincerity of the G7.

A cyber-attack was launched in 2015 by money launderers partnering with big corporations.  Their goals are to hide their financial crimes while they steer the world back-in-time towards an oligarchy, where money alone rules. This path will be detrimental to all 7 billion global citizens.

Words are the weapons in a cyber war. – Remaining silent is to accept defeat.
 
Donald Trump has made it clear he is fully willing to steer the world on a path to oblivion as long as he can keep his ill-got money and stay out of jail for his crimes over the years. If Trump he can’t win in 2020, he may blow the whole thing up trying.

There are now many here in the USA who want Trump out asap, even within the GOP. G7 world leaders can help in that effort with a statement they can fashion in their own words along these lines. 

I would like to hear something like this from Macron:

After Donald Trump became president, it soon became clear he was willing to lie to his own people on a daily basis. If Trump is willing to lie to his own people to “win”, as he calls it, then how can he be trusted to keep his deals and former agreements with foreigners?   

The conclusion that I, and most world leaders, have reached is Donald Trump cannot be trusted to be honorable.  He has proven that over and over again, first as a citizen and now as the US president.

Therefore we are not going allow the Trumps to take part in the G7 meetings. We will wait for 2021 or for Americans to come to their senses.  

Something like that needs to be heard from Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron – and other respected world leaders. America now could use some help from the world stage leaders, the same way we helped Europe 75​ years ago

We are living in a world community now. ​ Words started this war. Words can end it. .

I am asking all global citizens to contact their presidents and senators. Let’s get this done. Blackball the Trumps for the G7 meetings and then get down to real work.

The mad, maniacal drama we are witnessing since Trump took the helm is the exact opposite of the cool-handed leadership we sorely need right now. Trump is like a hot fuse in a room filled with nitroglycerin. A simple unintended accident now and the word goes boom. 

All it will take to win this war of words, is words. No bombs, no bullets, no troops. We need influential people to deliver some thoughtful heartfelt words on the world stage.

GOP politicians here will soon realize they will be voted out of power in 2020. And they will turn on Trump. Help them see how fatally doomed the Trump agenda is. Speak out now. The world is watching.

Thank you for your careful consideration to this plan and for helping circulate it. Share this post. Add your own thoughts.

We are all global citizens. We all have a stake in peace. I am just trying to do what I can as a citizen. Joseph Aronesty

Can We Stop Our President from Spewing Hate?

I went swimming today at the new El Segundo outdoor pool outside Los Angeles. There was a diverse racial mix at the pool. As I looked around the pool, I thought about what happened in Texas – and I was grateful. We Angelinos have a long history of not making race a divisive issue in our communities. And that helps Los Angeles be one of the greatest cities to live in on the planet. It dawned on me right there: racial tension is a very expensive commodity for both the targets and the haters.

If people can’t work together in harmony, commerce suffers which affects real estate values. Why is a home in Los Angeles so much pricier than in most other American cities? Some say supply and demand. But on the demand side, it’s assets like proximity to commerce and access to opportunity, education and creature comforts that makes Los Angeles expensive. Racial harmony plays a big part in those demand-side factors.

Indeed, racial harmony would be an asset to any community. El Paso has been living proof of that for many years. So I wonder why Donald Trump has not learned that yet – by age seventy-three. Yes, Trump started his business career as a slumlord in the 70’s and they often learn a sort of business-related racial bias. But this is 2019. It seems to me that fostering an attitude of love and acceptance for others is not only what all our religions teach – it’s also smart business. Does he simply not care about his enemies, even if they are American citizens? Is that not a violation of his oath to protect and serve all Americans?

Image result for shithole nation

Add this up. Donald Trump must know it’s not in his interest to fail as president – but he keeps up the hateful rhetoric. Perhaps Donald Trump is actually trying to divide the United States? It sure looks and sounds that way. And if he is actively doing this, for whom – and to what end for Americans?

If we think Trump ends with the next election, I say Trump already knows that’s how he is supposed to be removed from power. He also knows he has committed serious crimes that a new regime will likely prosecute. That means Trump will do his best to make sure there’s not going to be a fair election. Trump has shown his cards. He has no respect for elections or laws. Nothing is off this table. Maybe he’ll have us fighting in the streets by then and the election will be put off until he can figure out “what the hell is going on?”

After El Paso, I am also very concerned that part of Trump’s motive in promoting hate is to push someone in the immigrant community over the edge to commit a heinous crime that all Americans will detest. Think one step ahead of this maniac. Let’s get that word out. Because if that happens, Trump can strike back with some semblance of moral authority. If Trump keeps up his divisive rhetoric, you can be sure this is his goal. He may even set the crime up. Nothing is off his table.

In the end, racism is just bad business and very contagious. Love is smart business and also contagious. That’s what America must decide ASAP. I see no reason to wait for an election to decide who we are as Americans.

It’s time someone in the House advances a law that prohibits politicians from inciting or targeting any group of Americans with hate speech? When Trump says the fake news is the enemy of the people, that is a violation of his presidential oath. Reporters are US citizens – and his words are endangering them. The penalty for clear repeated violation of this oath must be enforced removal from office.

After what we have been through this summer, if we allow the President of the United States to continue to instigate racism and hate, maybe America is the real sh*thole country.

Trump also knows you win elections in the last 10 days. So this all just gets more dangerous as we approach Election Day 2020. 

America Won WW2 Because We Worked Together as a Team

We Need WW2 Teamwork Again Now

Let’s show the American people we can unite our party. Both sides will respect that. After all, if we cant unite the “left” how can we unite the country?

May 2019

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 that sells our rights and assets to the highest bidders. And at the same time, we are at war with each other – which will make it very difficult for any side to prevail in 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.

We all know there’s an election in 2020. 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.

I still see a way to get the current GOP Senate to vote to impeach Trump, but only after the Dems change the way they are running their campaigns . Some GOP senators are now whispering privately they want to abandon Trump. Let’s show those same GOP senators if they keep Trump as their figurehead they’ll have no shot in 2020. That’s the big idea here.

Teamwork

The viable candidates and those who really want to work to save this country should meet in a room and settle on who will be the Democratic candidates for president, vice president, chief of staff and district attorney. Then our Team America pools resources and gets to work – not only to beat Trump – but to show the American people what they can do for the citizens of the USA.

Will this surprise tactic of running for president with a VP and cabinet in place – work? How can it not work?

The optics are spectacular. Instead of 20 candidates telling undecided American voters why they are best for the top job – we present one well-prepared team, ready on day one to get the actual jobs done for all Americans.

Even MAGA people will go for that. They know they are being lied to. They just don’t know who will be there for them on our side because right now we don’t even know. They will remain tuned out to our overtures until we decide. Till next July? Really? It will be too late by then.

The big idea is to not preach to the choir and get GOP constituents in red states liking what they are seeing and hearing. Imagine a team energetic candidates all campaigning simultaneously for the ideas we need to transform this country. That's never been seen here before. It's like Trump that way - powerful out-of-the-box strategy. (You got to give him that.)

Now imagine the same-old, same-old – what we have now. More debates after-which we neither learn much nor convert voters to our common causes. More circular firing squads. And all the while, Trump team – from Kelly Anne to Bill Barr – speaks in unison. We are strategically handicapped because we play by rules, conventions and traditions while Trump does not. If we had fought WW2 this way, we’d all be speaking German here today.

I realize not every candidate will want to leave their current position to work in the 2021 cabinet that leads America into a modern future. But they can be offered posts. I sense a job for Michele Obama in Team America too.

There’s no room for it’s all about me now.
