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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Trump’s Main Problem – Cheating To Win

We Are Now at War with the Entire GOP

The GOP is clearly allied with Vladimir Putin

If we think back to the 2016 campaign, there were strange sightings of Russians at the GOP Convention and trails of Russian money mixed with the NRC treasury. Now, in the rear view mirror, it all begins to make sense.

Putin realized that the GOP controlled the gateway to promote a 2016 presidential candidate. So first he had to form an alliance with the GOP and sell them on the idea of running Donald Trump. Reince Prebus didn’t go along with the Russian scheme, so he was the first to go.

McConnell, the most transactional US Senator in history, proved he would do anything to further his party’s interests when he held up Obama’s SCOTUS choice for one year. Mitch knows how essential he is for the GOP’s survival, so he leveraged a lucrative post for his wife Elaine Chao, who has many business ties to China, – Secretary of Transportation. So the McConnells are all in with the sellout.

The metastasis of the GOP sellout has spread to other positions of power within the US government. They are actively ousting anyone not 100% board and replacing them with lockstep loyalists. Comey, Tillerson and Mattis did not pass the loyalty test and were ousted for no good cause other than a president deserves to surround himself with whomever he wants. And yes, that is how the law reads.

Listen to what Putin said at a hockey game he plays in to a CBS reporter. “Trump is acting in accordance with ( the laws of ) his own government”.

Autocrats and criminals often leak out what’s on their minds when they think people are not paying attention. In Putin’s case, his power is so secure he could shoot someone in Red Square and not lose any power. He prefers poison these days. But view this interview, which you can listen to by clicking here, as a leaked statement of Putin’s state of information with respect to Trump’s actions to oust Comey. Putin was either in the loop, or more likely – calling the shots. Putin is a democracy takeover expert. Trump is taking orders, spreading lies – and golfing.

The GOP is and clearly has been aligned with Putin, and together they are trying to take over the United States by using the existing laws on the books. In a country of laws, there is really no other way to do it. That’s why they start with court appointees. That is Putin’s genius. Over time, they hope there will be less laws to fight.

The GOP is operating like a mob crime family, ignoring the will and interests of the American people they swear to serve. They focus on the steps needed to retain power for their uppermost members. They all have foreign entanglements and bank accounts where they can enrich themselves on the quiet.

The GOP is the process of forming a ruling oligarchy here in the USA, that will compare with what Putin has in Russia. That has become their primary goal now because once a faction has committed crimes, they must create and sustain an environment that keeps the crimes hidden forever. Hence the trial with no witnesses was necessary for the GOP. They are complicit with all or trump’s crimes, past and future now.

The vindication of Donald Trump in a Soviet-styled sham trial was an essential step in keeping the GOP’s crimes secret. Donald Trump knows that McConnell and the top GOP members are complicit in the crimes they have jointly committed. Trump has that dirt on the key members, so it was really impossible for the GOP senators to vote for witnesses and documents.

Really, they all need to be impeached. But Barr, Pompeo and McConnell for sure.

As for Trump, I say, IMPEACH HIM AGAIN in the People’s House. Get witnesses, documents and let the 75% of Americans see the truth during the election year. And I don’t care if there is an election coming – because they don’t care. The will call anyone who opposes this tyrant a criminal right up to the election day. And since people – here there and everywhere – are mostly meek and decent – enough of them will buy his lies to make it close and the cheating may get him over the line. But only if Russia is on the front page in October.

Let me end this short warning with math that should be very telling. Trump and his GOP party have just totally ignored the will of 75% of the American people who wanted to at least see the witness and documents in his impeachment trial. They are 75% along the way to a complete totalitarian rule here in the USA. After all, if 100% of Americans wanted to see a real trial and could not make it happen – that would mark the total surrender of democracy, which by definition means the people’s majority should prevail.

There two steps that remain for complete takeover of the US democracy: shutting down information media and rigging the election. PS. This is why Trump fears Bloomberg most. Mike owns a huge media outlet. This is why I am beginning to think Mike Bloomberg is our front man – but he should select and delegate positions to candidates like Bernie, Pete, Klobuchar and even Booker and Harris. If Bloomberg runs an inclusive campaign, that’s all we will really need. We can’t unit the country if we can’t unite our party. Whoever figures this out first, should be our man.

If I were in Schiff’s shoes, I would make a public plea for open-source encrypted voting software with paper trails for this year’s elections. Absent of that – which will never happen – the Dems must keep the investigation ongoing in the House, write new articles of impeachment for Trump and impeach McConnell, Barr and Pompeo – this time with a trial done in the House with witnesses and documents.

The primary meme that drives Putin and Trump is still “greed is good”. Don’t view these “statesmen” as politicians. View them and treat them for what they are – criminals with the titles of statesmen. They will view truth tellers in media and government as rats and leakers. That is the struggle we find ourselves in now –statesmen vs. criminals.

Will we allow criminals to keep the controls of our once democratic government and use our own laws to maintain their power and negate majority rule for all of us? What kind of world will we be living in when majority rule no longer applies in the USA at all? Ask the citizens of Russia and Venezuela how their authoritarian government is working for them.

These are links to my most relevant posts on Trump-ism. I sat in a class with Donald trump in ’67 at Penn and worked close enough to him in AC to see he was buying into a crooked lifestyle. I made a choice to get away from that meme. It just did not sit well with me. It still does not.


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? We are here now.

Trump’s Main Problem – Cheating To Win

Trump’s Bad Polling Math Should Concern GOP

But it Should Worry All Americans too

Taxation without representation is tyranny.

James Otis, 1761

Fox News, CNN and other reliable polls show that slightly more than half of Americans want Trump impeached and removed. The average of reliable polls is 52% want Trump out. These are people who will never vote for him. So Trump starts at 48% of the popular vote as a maximum.

And it gets worse than that because some of the 48% wont end up voting for him as well. If 75% of Americans want witnesses and documents in the Senate Impeachment Trial, it is because they know there can be no real trial and no justice possible without witnesses and documents. And many of those 75% are Republican and Independent voters. This means 75% of Americans have at least some reservations about the honesty of Donald Trump and they want to see a real trial to resolve that uncertainty.

It gets hard to deny Trump’s ceiling for the national vote in an honest election can exceed 40% to 45% – which means though he lost the popular vote in 2016 by 3 million votes – Trump would lose the popular vote by 13 million to 18 million votes if the election were held today.

This bad math will drag the GOP senators and reps down in the House and Senate, resulting in more lost seats in November. So yes, the GOP should realize they are likely to lose all their power in November.

But it should also worry all Americans because of one big reason: Trump and the GOP now know for sure they can’t win an honest election. They know they will have to cheat to win. And Donald Trump has the appetite to step blindly onto that path because he really does not care what people think about him. If he did, he would have become a better person long ago. Trump also knows the term that follows his presidential term may be a prison term. So he will be willing to do anything to win.

The bad polling math means if we don’t find a way to remove Donald Trump, we should expect election cheating to be a big part of the GOP strategy in 2020.

If 75% of Americans want to see a trial that has evidence, witnesses and documents, and the GOP representative Senators do not allow that to happen, how are they even representing the public will?

In the years before the founding of the United States, the anti-British slogan was, “taxation without representation is tyranny”. Are we not paying taxes? This much is clear to this writer, as it should be to all: the GOP’s willingness to ignore the will of their constituents is a modern day form of tyranny.

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’s Main Problem – Cheating To Win

What Does 2020 Look Like After the Senate Acquits?

Imagine America’s future was riding on a football game. The election of 2020 is that game in this analogy. One team has a captain and coach and the other team has 20 could-be quarterbacks and coaches, all sparring with each other. I think the favorite would the team with the strategic advantages. There is only one way to take away those strategic advantages. – We need a quarterback and head coach and now – while the game is on. When the Senate votes to end nullify the impeachment that will put us on defense for the rest of the game. Not smart.

I have explained that there is no rush to vote on impeachment. The big vote is 300 days away and most Americans don’t focus on elections until the last few weeks. That’s when Trump won 2016. And that’s when Trump will be trying to cheat to win again in 2020. A vote in Spring is a wiser strategy. It provides a time for public to digest what they are witnessing. The Spring ushers in renewed spirits and the weather is better for protesting too. We keep pushing for testimony from Bolton etc – and for Trump’s taxes. It also gives Trump time to self-destruct – which is a real possibility.

A few days ago, I figured Trump would wait for the Senate acquittal before coming after the FBI, the Free Press and his enemies in general. But just like his call to Zelensky followed the Mueller Report, Trump’s criminal mind tells him not to wait even one day.

And so now Trump and Barr are coming after the FBI. Why not? Imagine if Al Capone had been able to fire Elliot Ness. Getting rid of the cops that come after criminals is ideal … for the criminals. Donald Trump has created a portal to the world we saw in Back to the Future II when Biff takes over the world by … cheating to win. Life is imitating art.

So this is what we expect if the House lets the Senate acquit. Trump and Barr are partners in crime now. They have access to all the best criminal minds on the planet. But 52% of Americans are dug in against this Dystopian version of the United States. They won’t back down. But neither will Trump. He knows there is a good chance the term that follows his presidential term is a jail term. How does this not end like a Tarantino movie?

So 2020 will soon resemble a Civil War – a Cyber Civil War at first. Trump will continue to paint his opponents as “human scum”. They will bring out a phrase they have used very lightly so far: presidential harassment. They will state that coming after the president after he has been acquitted in the Senate is presidential harassment and is hurting the nation. Barr will arrest or indict some of his opponents and some reporters.

The fever pitch will rise as we approach the summer and the Democratic Convention. Security at the convention should be overly prepared because Trump and the Russians will have all their adversaries in one place for a week. This would be an ideal place for “an incident”. Those who cannot stomach Trump’s vile language and culture of hate will be in the streets protesting.

An incident at a Democratic street protest would also be ideal to break up the resistance. This is what Trump and Barr will be focused on during the run-up to the election. They will be focused on making decent citizens who want a better place for their children look like the bad guys. They will also focus on making Democrats look like the criminals. Lock them up may be their battle cry. We know it’s been Trump Barr and the GOP that are the bad guys. They have joined the criminals on the planet – like Putin – in an effort to subjugate the lives of everyday American and global citizens.

So yes. It was necessary to write and release Articles of Impeachment. Dems have done a great job. But they should not vote on them right away. Let it all sink in a few months. Set a date in late February or the early Spring, when the weather breaks. You never know when given time how Trump will shoot himself in the foot so bad that even his own base won’t like what they see. That is what we really need to happen, and it can – given time. Keep asking for his taxes and for the testimony he has obstructed. And then walk and chew gum for a few months.

In the gap between impeachment and voting for it, we totally change our strategy for the election of 2020!

America Won WW2 Because We Worked Together as a Team

WE NEED WW2 TEAMWORK AGAIN NOW

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 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 without ego and with a spirit of teamwork. Now we have American Nationalism to defeat. And it’s not across the pond.

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. No one has to storm a beach. Then that team pools resources and gets to work – not only to beat Trump – but to show the American people on both sides what they can do for the citizens of the USA.

The above is where Amy can seal this all up with one or two calls. First Biden – who may say no. Then Bloomberg who should see its brilliance.

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 we don’t know. Maybe they won’t like who we choose, so they stay with what they know – Trump. They will remain tuned out to our overtures until we decide. Till next July? Really?

We need the MAGA people to put pressure on their reps to break from Trump and Trumpism. The GOP reps are spineless. They will fold to pressure. The GOP will get smart and remove Trump from consideration. Romney will run. We’ll clean up the elections. The Russians won’t have a dog in the fight and won’t bother meddling. And democracy is saved!

Think ahead. This plan can’t lose. An election that includes Donald Trump is way too risky. And no plan can’t win.

Trump Knew He Was Caught. Fired Dan Coates Three Days After the Call

The timing of three events this summer makes it clear Donald Trump knew he had been caught doing something very wrong.

Mueller testified July 24. It went over largely like a lead balloon. Feeling emboldened, Trump called the Ukrainian President on July 25th – they very next day – to ask him to collect dirt on the Bidens. He’s not wasting any time. He essentially reenacted the same crime he committed in 2016, enrolling foreign help to fix a national election, but this time he got caught red-handed. This was like OJ going back to reclaim his memorabilia after he got away with murder.

Three days later on July 28th, Dan Coates was fired. That is not a coincidence. Coates was the head of US Intelligence and not a Trump stooge. He should have known about the call made the the Ukraine. If he brought this to Trump and Trump asked him to keep it quiet – that would have resulted in his firing. And Trump likely was informed that the head of DNI needed to be someone he could get an allegiance pledge from. Joe McGuire may be a Trump stooge who has been bribed with funds placed in a foreign bank account – and he will not willingly let this dirt get out. He looks clean, but his actions are suspect.

putin-hockey

Listen to what Putin said to a CBS reporter at a hockey game he plays in. Putin said with an undeniable smirk “Trump is acting in accordance with ( the laws of ) his own government”. And by acting, he meant taking action. “Trump is taking action in accordance with the laws of his own government”.

That is the only way to take over a country that is ruled by laws. You can use the loopholes and oversights in the current laws along with the many powers of the presidency to take over a country. Putin is Trump’s mentor, benefactor and his boss in international matters. This is also why we did not get the Helsinki meeting notes. Putin back-channels his autocrat lessons.

We have ourselves to blame for all this. When Trump fires a patriot to hire stooges – all I hear is the malarkey that “Trump deserves the cabinet he can work with”. Maybe an honest president does. But at some point we have to realize – like Putin says – we are letting a crook use our laws to drown this great country. Trumpism is like an auto-immune disease. We don’t recognize the threats because they masquerade as legal. 

We gave him Barr without reserve. We’ve let Trump put whomever he wants into key positions. And of course that is all working to Trump’s benefit. Where is Trump getting this strategy? It all points to Vladimir Putin, the man who successfully turned a free Russia into his own privately owned kingdom in a very short time. Trump can’t plan ahead. He is too busy watching TV and golfing to be brilliant at anything – except crime. Enough!

Why The Time To Impeach is Now

Impeachment is a strange fruit. The process was made intentionally long and difficult. Both houses must be on board but more importantly both sides of the America electorate must be on board.

We’ve all seen the pressure come and go with Donald Trump with all his many scandals. From “Russia, if you’re listening” to Access Hollywood to Helsinki, from Charlottesville to sh*thole countries and much more.

But the scandals that stick on both sides are the ones the seem to put our country in jeopardy. Both sides did not like Helsinki because we all sensed Trump could be compromised to Russia when he said “Putin was very powerful”. Both sides know that Russia does not have American interests at heart. This gaff still sticks in our throats because it affects our sense of national security.

And now it appears that one day after Mueller* did his feeble national appearance, Trump took a victory lap and felt secure enough to start enrolling foreign powers to affect our national elections again. He felt he had totally gotten away with whatever he did in 2016 and he was on to doing the same thing 2020.

I put the asterisk next to Mueller’s name because he testifies Monday and maybe he knows that the reason Trump tried to bribe Ukraine was because he failed to reach the American public with his performance. He’s got another chance now – and Mueller now sees how his lukewarm performance emboldened Trump to do more of the same exact crimes he was investigating. I’m not holding my breath for Mueller, but he was once a warrior – and maybe that instinct will resurface.

#WhistleBlowerGate is a clear abuse of power by Donald Trump. But it’s also an abuse that compromises our national security by bugging our free election process. Both sides see that clearly now. And that is super important because public support on both sides is needed to ride the impeachment wave to the safety of the shore.

The time to impeach is now while both sides are united and feeling betrayed. And I mean this week. Timing is everything. Stalling will be Trump’s plan with this Ukraine thing. If we also stall it will just fizzle the necessary public support to conduct impeachment. This window will not stay open long. We should have learned that by now.

There is also this. MAGA folk do not respect sissies. And maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe it’s good that a portion of our electorate respects the traditional icon of a warrior leader. Maybe it’s built in to them for a reason. Maybe to protect us. So it has occurred to me that at least some MAGA folk are looking for a reason to dump Trump and just has not seen it yet from the left side. Show them strength and this movement can gather steam. Show them weakness and deliberation – and it will fizzle out. Biden seemed to know that today. Good work Joe.

I think we all are longing for that great American feeling of national unity and pride again. If we impeach now it might be closer than we think.

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?

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
