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.

Why This Ukrainian Lie is Going to Stick with “Both Sides”

The Boy Who Cried Wolf is an age-old parable that describes the dangers of telling repeated lies. The boy is a shepherd in charge of a flock, and when he cries “Wolf!” the local hunters take him seriously and arrive to kill the wolf.

But the wolf is not there because the boy was lying all along. That works a few times. But finally, a real wolf appears and when the boy cries out for help, the hunters don’t take him seriously – and the boy is eaten by the wolf.

In effect, this is what is happening to Donald Trump after the lies he is spinning about the Ukrainian phone call incident. Why is this incident different from “Obama is from Kenya” or “She’s not my type”? Trump loyalists have had a lot of tolerance for his lies – 10,000 lies. But this lie is different for one big reason.

The boy who cried wolf was a shepherd. He had a responsibility. The hunters are a metaphor for the militia in today’s world. This Ukrainian lie has to do with military strategy vs. Russia! It’s not just election fixing, even though that is what Trump was trying to do by creating dirt on his opponent.

This Ukrainian lie is about $400 million dollars of taxpayer money that Congress had ear-marked to help a democratic country stay free from more Russian aggression. Both sides now sense this cavalier attitude towards lying can also endanger us here in the USA. No real American wants Russia to get stronger to our detriment. Not even MAGA folk want to go there.

We are beginning to see MAGA folk stray from their shepherd because they realize his lies can endanger their own lives. That’s why the hunters in the parable don’t respond to the boys cries for help. This lie crossed the line because it exposes Donald Trump, a man in charge of our national security, was ready and willing to sell us all out for his own purposes. Trump endangered our military strategy against Russia, a known enemy of democracy.

So now, Americans on both sides have seen the real danger of a president who lies, and many have simply had enough. More than 50% want Trump impeached now. It’s not only about this last lie. It’s about the sum of the lies. But this one was downright dangerous to our security. And that will be his undoing.

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.

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.

Our Democracy is Under Attack and Dems Are in Summer Recess. Really?

Why Dems will Deserve to Lose 2020 If They Don’t Impeach

Have we gone from waiting for Mueller to waiting for Pelosi?
July 28th, 2019 - With the firing of Dan Coats, Trump's war on the truth about his Russian allies escalates to a new level. This is now a full on war on all Americans. We can no longer trust Trump's people to protect us. We never could. But everyone who cares about preserving a free America knows this now. 

This post outlines a strategy to get Trump out ... by Christmas. Please read and think this through. There is not a day to waste. The attitude of all Americans must be: Teamwork. No egos. The Democratic Convention is not until July 2020. That is way too long of a wait to show the MAGA people what we will do for them. Once they see a better way forward, they will peel off supporting a party that takes advantage of people.

MAGA people, this is for you too. No harsh feelings. We were both fooled by the election shenanigans of 2016.

It's okay. Water under the bridge. Let's work together for a few months and we both can get what we want. There's still plenty of money to share and invest into infrastructure, education & healthcare  - making all our lives better.

People know when they are being ignored. And that’s exactly how Democrat leaning citizens will feel while Dems take a summer break now when we need to focus most. We are under attack and our sitting president is doing less than ignoring it – he is denying it! We are under attack and the Dems are enjoying recess. What is the difference? People will either feel ignored or that the threat must not be so dangerous.

Right now, 70% of Democratic constituents want impeachment. The one thing that really needs to be understood is why on Earth MAGA people are not also up in arms against Trump. He’s not doing much for them. His party wants to take away their pre-existing conditions. Trump tariffed farmers and told them to stick it out. His national debt is skyrocketing. He’s ignoring our environment. This is not good for either “side”.

There are many theories about why MAGA folk stick with Trump. It’s too easy to say that Trump’s base are all racists so they stay with him for that. But farmers aren’t usually racist haters. They are nature people. That does not seem right. MAGA people truly don’t want a swampy administration, filled with graft and with ties to Russia. They just need to see someone on the Dem side that appeals to their sense of what a leader is.

MAGA folk don’t like sissies. They prefer the part of the Bible that says “an eye for an eye” over “turn the other cheek”. What the Pelosi Dems miss is we will gain MAGA support if we act with seeming strength- as that is what they liked in Trump in the first place over Hillary! Everyone is missing that. The classic, age-old image of a warrior is what some people look for in a president. A group that can;t even decide to out a traitor is not going to be respected by the MAGA folk OR the Dems long run. How do we miss this?

THE STRATEGY

Put ourselves in the shoes of Trump supporters. MAGA folk mostly know something’s not right with Donald Trump. He’s certainly not like them. But what choices are the Dems offering them now? Trump is all about photo-ops and sound bites. Dems don’t have one man’s man at the top of a platform to win over the disaffected MAGA people. They are not going to switch for Pelosi – top Dem now – face it. She was the original misogynist target before Hillary. They won’t switch for 20 assorted candidates. Why should they? We still might end up nominating someone they can’t tolerate. (Thinking in MAGA shoes.)

And therein lies the reason we are not getting on to removal of Donald Trump from office. Timing! It’s not Trump’s stonewalling as much as we currently have neither a coordinated ticket, agenda, platform nor war room. Trump has all of this. Putin has this. But we have 20 candidates who are about to fight with each other in debates.

During WW2 we all worked as a team to defeat a known enemy.  We have a known enemy now. We need that WW2 teamwork and no-egos mentality back.  

MAGA people won’t support Pelosi (or likely any woman) who does not seem to know her place aside a man. It’s how they view things. Set that aside. We can’t afford idealism now. Next cycle it should be fine. But we are about to lose our democracy over this guy. We cannot afford to ignore the misogyny and racial predispositions within the general population.

And even some of the men on the Dem side seem to have a feminine side. MAGA people also won’t switch for a Chuck Schumer. MAGA people just want a man who does not seem to have much of a feminine side. I know it’s weird. But it’s why they tolerate Trump even though they know he went into high school girls locker rooms – just to get off on it.

It’s also why they like Biden, Bernie and weirdly Mayor Pete – who, even though he is gay, speaks with undeniable masculine authority.

So the big idea is to get to Biden or Bernie to officially be our candidate sooner – and not later. And let’s not forget how Hillary disconnected from her supporters and did not choose Bernie as VP, squandering all that heartfelt support. We should agree to choose our candidate and VP from the 20 candidates in September. That is actually the simple and full fix for the Trump problem. This post aims to make that clear.

I know it's not the way things are usually done here. But they let Roosevelt be POTUS for 4 terms because the times demanded it. 

Our candidate should select his VP immediately upon confirmation. And it’s probably smart if the VP is a woman. MAGA people are okay with a man’s man working with a woman aside him – like a family. Remember. It’s about appearances for the MAGA people. They have their reasons. It’s why they broke for Trump. Respect that.

MAGA people will begin to drift from Trump as soon as they see another man’s man running who seems to care about them. And we have a few of them right now. And when MAGA folk begin to abandon Trump, what do you think the GOP politicians will do? That’s right! They are going to drop him and fast.

And when they do that Trump won’t even make it to the end of his term. Impeachment can be confirmed in the Senate and Trump can be removed from office within a few months – by Christmas. Done.

But it can only happen a few months after we first show MAGA people who we are running and what we can do for them. If we wait too long, there will be too much damage. Trump is the most expensive president we’ve ever had – primarily because he needs to tear us apart (Putin’s orders) to stay in power.

Another year of tearing us apart and there is bound to be an incident that Trump says – and Barr confirms – requires martial law here. They will set it up if need be. That will slowly become Trump’s goal. A trapped rat will bite.

Also note: This is how Putin took over his democracy in Russia. Trump is getting back-channel schooling in becoming a dictator. It’s why he loves Kim too. He loves the way these guys screw everybody and get away with it. It’s cool to him. I use cool because I know this guy. From Penn and AC. He is my peer - my generation. And you can’t fool your peers. Can your peers fool you? 

Getting Trump out by Christmas will also curtail what we are going to have to endure whether Trump loses – or wins. Michael Cohen was not kidding. Trump is not going to go for a smooth transition of power. Trump knows the term that follow his presidential term is a prison term.

When the Dems go on vacation, Trump will have the mic to himself. This cancer has spread folks. And the doctors want to go on vacation? It makes no sense. I don’t think there is a day to waste until we choose a candidate – develop our own war room and get Trump indicted.

Trump worked with the Russians to win a election. We now have no election protection because the guy who stole the last election controls the election machinery and justice department. Wake up!

Biden has the iconic face we need to promote the policies we all want and need. Others can formulate policies to benefit all Americans. Warren has detailed many great plans. Harris should be offered DA. She can be the one that puts all the crooks in the past administration in jail. Poetic justice. Why not Inslee for EPA? There is a job for all these candidates, if indeed they want to help their fellow Americans.

And if all they wanted to do is be president – they will say no – and that’s fine too. I suspect a few of them are in that boat. I call this Team America. We don’t just need one president. We need real WW2 style teamwork. Is that so hard? It isn’t! What we are doing is much harder and may fail. This cannot fail. No egos. Teamwork.

This should happen soon! This way all American citizens that want to preserve our democracy have a team to support right now. There are plenty of MAGA people that would like to abandon Trump, but we are taking way too long to show them an alternate plan and president. Why spread the money and support around? It’s weakening us right now – when we need strength. 

We now have 20 assorted candidates struggling for power – all with the same basic message. Trump has Barr, Pence McConnell, Graham, Nunez, Miller, Kushner and plenty of other sycophants all on one coordinated team. I know this is the system we have, but it’s really stupid to stick with something that is not working when you are in a war. – And we are definitely in a war now – with Russia and our own sold out swamp creatures.  All because you don’t hear the bombs dropping does not mean we are not under attack. We are in a cyber war and we have everything to lose. Let that sink in.

And we have no idea how or when Russia will strike next. Will they hit the electric grid? Will they hit our banking or voting systems? We can only play defense because we have no offense. – This is also why Pelosi has been wrong about not starting impeachment ASAP.  We are gambling with everything – every day Trump is in power. It’s like we’re willing to risk a negative lottery. We really don’t know if the sirens will start blaring tonight – do we?

Like Trump, Putin also has no quit button. They are ruthless, money laundering criminals with the power of their donors, judicial systems, media machines – and they have the guns! We know what we are up against.

We really can’t afford to wait until 2020 to have a candidate. We need to get to one candidate with a pre-selected VP and DA – asap. If we choose right the MAGA people will peel off, then the GOP reps will follow – and Donald Trump will swiftly get what he deserves. Then we can begin to take our government back from the money laundering swamp creatures that have it now.

Trump Plans to Destroy the American Democracy in 2019 – Not 2020

The Dems Should Run as a Team – Team America – Justice League 2020

Trump Planning to Destroy American Democracy Before the Election

iceThe ICE RAIDS is the beginning of a new active chapter in Trump’s attempted coupe of democracy. The goal of this coupe is to deny the citizens of America the ability to run their own government – or even elect the people they want to run their government – so that the current coupe stays in power, regardless of what the people want or vote for.

Trump needs this coupe to remain in power specifically because he cheated with Russian help to win the presidency. If the truth gets thru to a majority of Americans, and Trump can’t rig the 2020 election so he wins again, the new president will be forced by public pressure to move against the Trumps in a very big way. Trump now needs to show how he handles public pressure. These ICE raids will get ugly. Trump needs to instill fear, not so much in the immigrants that are here, ( they are already afraid ), but in the mainstream resistance and democrats in general. Trump needs to show all Americans that he has the guns and will use them on people here – if they come after him!

That is what everyone is missing. It’s not about red meat for his base. It’s not even about these immigrants. Trump does not care about the immigrants. Immigrants have always been cheap labor for his golf courses and hotels. It’s about taking over America with a few key people ( whose fidelity he has purchased ) and squashing out the resistance, whether it comes from “Indivisible” or bona fide election results. Trump needs all Americans to fear him.

ice-raids2We must never forget that Putin assisted Trump and publicly celebrated his win. But it was not a win for winning’s sake. There were specific things that Putin wanted from America -things he could never have got from a legitimate president. So Putin is now coaching Trump on how to take over a large country using the existing laws within a country – and bribery of course. After all, Putin did this himself. No one knows espionage and politics o this planet better than Vladimir Putin. And where there is bribery, there are secret bank accounts. So read on.

Donald Trump has never studied history. But soon after Trump cheated enough to win the 2016 election, he realized he just might need to actually become a dictator to cover up the crimes he committed to become POTUS. He also discovered that having experienced caring public servants ( good people) in his administration was not going to work for him because good people are always loyal to country and laws. Trump knows he has always been a white-collar criminal, and if the truth ever comes out about election 2016 or his past crimes, he would be widely regarded as a modern day Benedict Arnold – or perhaps like the Rosenbergs, executed to giving up military secrets.  So what did Donald do? He immediately began cover-up and disinformation campaigns.

kislyakOne day one, he invited the very same Russians who helped put him in office to The White House to celebrate their victory. And at that meeting – he was told very strongly for the help he was given he was now beholden to Russia and Vladimir Putin, who is a student of history with hands-on experience in taking over a large country. They both made it clear the US/Russia relationship was a partnership now, and Putin would be giving him the step-by-step instructions on how to become a president for life – so the full truth about 2016 would never come out. 

To keep his secrets safe, and having no particular affinity for the USA per se, Trump effectively surrendered the presidency to the mentors and allies that helped him win the election – big business, donors, Evangelists, Putin, Kushner, Bannon, etc.

What followed was a process that is tantamount to the process of a metastatic cancer. Thousands of small metastases take place with no seeming harm to the body. Those metastases are the loyalty-tested justices that Trump has been installing almost daily as POTUS. He puts people in place, rewards them for loyalty, and when he needs them they know if they stick with Trump they are taken care of. 

putin-barr3At some point, the justices are all called to rule in his favor. At first, it may be on insignificant things that are not crucial to the survival of the body. But that is just the training and testing period. The Nazis that worked for Hitler did not start out gassing Jews. It takes time to get all the right loyalists in place. This test of the abortion issue that we are witnessing in almost half of our states, is such a test. 

The appointments of Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barr were crucial in this disease process – which is actually an attempted coupe of the United States to keep one man out of jail. Trump is very busy accusing patriotic Americans of the crimes he knows he did.  And it’s quite clear that Putin is the mentor behind all this.    

Since Trump knows he is finished if full truth comes out while he is still alive, Trump will be trying to stay in power, or keep his allies in the GOP in power for another 20 years by any and every means possible. That is what Trump’s entire presidency is now about – and will be about – as long as Donald Trump is allowed to remain president of the USA. It’s not about fulfilling his oath to serve and protect the American people. It’s not about making these better for every day Americans. 

There is no happy ending to the Trump presidency. There is this old song sung by Frank Sinatra – Something’s Got To Give. It’s either him or all of us. Either the USA succumbs to the Trump disease and is no more – or Trump is removed from office in 2021 – or sooner. I hope that is clear to everyone now. And if we wait for the 2020 election to treat this cancer, we have waited way too long. They will try to fix that election – and if that fails – they will say it was not legitimate. 

i am very worried about this one week delay for Mueller to talk. Trump negotiated that for a reason. My sense is that he wants to start the ICE raids – and is hoping for ( or will set up ) a resistance in which things go out of control and immigrants fight back. Then he can look justified in using force. He can become effectively, a war president, without doing a real war. The war will be right here in the USA – police vs. immigrants. This delay gives Trump time for this internal war to get physical. Watch this space. Prepare the immigrants. Make sure they don’t get physical. 

Mueller has stated he does not want to speak in front of the American people, but he will respect the subpoena.  I really don’t get why he does not want to be fully helpful to the cause. We have a totally crazed person in charge of the United States. We need our most valiant democracy defender to testify from his heart – in a way that can’t be rigged or spun by the state-run media. If Mueller is half-hearted, what does that say about our chances? It’s not good. 

Further, Pelosi is still afraid of pursuing Impeachment. I’ve tried to put myself in her shoes and this is what I have some up with. Imagine the day after Trump’s GOP Senate ignores all evidence and votes to keep Trump in power. What can we do or say then? This must be Pelosi’s fear. After that moment, Trump would then have absolute power to do anything he wants. That’s the death knell for democracy.

So Pelosi is afraid to get to that day. I can empathize with her. So she’s trying to convince Trump’s base they should not support this thief-in-chief by having the evidence of his crimes slowly unwind in the public eye. She wants Trump to get voted out in 2020. That’s her plan. Trump’s plan is to fix the election again – to ignore the election results  – or to have America on it’s knees by then. Whatever – he will not go down without a fight.

The public eye is our immune system. And like a smart cancer, Trump is trying to suppress our immune system. I don’t care what we use to get Trump out. Sooner is better than later with cancer and Trump. I’m okay with a few years with Pence at potus. Pence won’t work with Russians to rig elections. Had Trump won fair and square all this would not be happening. I’d like to see impeachment start sooner not later. 

There’s one more thing. Treason is defined as an act of betrayal during a war. But just what constitutes a war is not defined in our constitution. – And the nature of war changes over time with the technologies. I believe today, cyber war – can be war. We can take down a country by attacking a country’s internet today. No need for bullets. War has always been an effort to take something from a sovereign country by force. Election fraud does that just fine.

I believe causes to prosecute Trump for espionage and treason have been present since June 2016 and “Russia, if you’re listening” – when he was just a citizen! Now he’s always one step ahead of us on this treason thing. Trump is already talking about going after Comey and the FBI for treason. We’ll never beat this if Trump is allowed to play by different rules than the rest of us are. Wake up!

I have been writing for three years about the danger my former classmate from Penn poses for America and Americans. I’m not on TV or radio. I have 1100 Twitter followers, about six politically aligned friends, my words and songs –  and that’s it. Now I am going away for June. I have created my own fail safe system for family survival if Americans don’t get rid of Trump by 2021. We’ll be moving out of country – renting out our house – until this craziness is over. I don’t think I’ll be alone in that.

One other post to absorb below. This post explains WHY Trump has affinity for dictators. The WHY will not go away. It actually can’t. Trump is in way too deep to get out. It’s one of those “if i tell you i have to kill you” things. Think about what happened to Scarface. Anyone can go too far.
