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

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.

WHY TRUMP IS ALIGNED WITH DICTATORS:

What’s the Difference Between Russian Bots on Social Media and Fox News?

Almost no average Americans like the idea of Russian bots infiltrating our social media. There is overwhelming bilateral agreement on that – and for good reasons. 

First and foremost there is the idea that foreigners might not be loyal to the United States and their messages might be tainted and favor another nation-state. That’s why you have to be born here to be president. Granted that many foreigners respect the people and institutions of the US and I am sure there are many US citizens that don’t. Still there is something to be said for investigating the motives and influences of foreign contributors to the media stream. We can’t let ISIS run ads on our media. We all get that. So there should be standards for disseminating information. The new congress has work to do. 

There will be those who say freedom of speech is something that cannot be challenged in any way, under any circumstances. I remind them you can’t shout fire in a crowded theater if there is no fire. Why is that? Because it can hurt people! When freedom of speech can hurt the people or institutions of the US, it can and should be restricted, censored or edited – so it does no harm to the actual people that live here.

This may seem strange – but caring about outcomes for ordinary Americans was built into the constitution from its very first sentence! There is an enabling clause in the Declaration of Independence. ( bolded below) Let’s look it over. 

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

I guess they could have left out all those bolded words and it would just say “we the people … do establish this Constitution”. – But the founding fathers told us why they were doing this. And the whys are the largest part of their enabling clause. Let’s not lose sight of the six reasons they set forth to substantiate the creation of the USA. 

  1. in Order to form a more perfect Union – There was a loose union in 18th century America – and the founding fathers wanted to define that union more precisely. 
  2. Establish Justice – They knew justice needed to be defined and established. This was true then and it is true now. This also speaks to no man is above the law
  3. Insure Domestic Tranquility – And here we get to those media bots and Trump’s divisive messages. There is no way Trump cares about domestic tranquility. He had even said he would not surrender if he lost to Hillary. We’ve heard from him there would be a revolt from his base if he was impeached. Trump’s attitude is inconsistent with the spirit of the constitution and many see that attitude as a disqualify-er for the job of president. But I also see this as a reason to question the right of Fox News – which is not owned by an American – to hinder domestic tranquility with dis-information – just the way most think of the Russian bots. 
  4. Provide for the common defense – I don’t see how what Trump is doing with Russia, Saudi Arabia and North Korea as being helpful to our defense. I say leave this to the generals and the experts. Winning a popularity contest – which is what the 2016 election was – does not  qualify anyone as a military expert. 
  5. Promote the General Welfare – If there is one thing Trump has convinced people he has done right it is promoting welfare. My position is that he has allowed big companies to grab as much as they can through lower taxes and less regulation, and there will be a clean-up cost down the road. I see the phrase “general welfare” as more inclusive than favoring the rich or connected. General welfare was the 18th century way of saying “the 99%”. – Trump’s policies overly favor “the 1%”. People are beginning to catch on to that now – two years into his presidency, 
  6. Secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity – I’d like shine a light on that Posterity word. Caring about the next generation is built into the constitution. How thoughtful of the founders. And how thoughtless and unconstitutional it is to ignore the dangers we are leaving to our children. That word “posterity” in our constitution should inform our climate science policy. The founders had that vision – why have we lost it? Not smart. Not caring. Selfish. But very Trumpian. 

Fox News was created by Australian-born media mogul Rupert Murdoch in October of 1996. Fox News quickly grew to become a dominant subscription news network in the US. As of February 2015, approximately 95,000,000 US households (80% of them)  received Fox News. Murdoch is the current executive chairman of Fox News.

We are currently looking into ways make sure Russian bots don’t spread dis-information over the public airways and on social media. Why then do we allow a foreign-born person – Rupert Murdoch – to spread non-factual information over our airways to our American citizens? That is not consistent thinking. 

I remember when news used to be just news. But now there is something called spin. On the night before Charlottesville I recall Janine Pierrot rallying her listeners to go to Virginia and stand up to defend democracy. She had fire in her voice. The haters that went to Charlottesville felt they were called on a mission. Some said it was their duty to be there.  And Trump said ” I could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and my supporters would not leave me.” These are examples of dog whistling for haters to act out. This is shouting fire in a crowded theater. There must be standards. 

Reporters just go to the places where news happens – and with video and audio media they re-port ( literally re-carry) what they see and hear. However, if the news presented is not truthful or it’s spun to distort the truth, then how is that in keeping with what our founders wanted when they created the 6 reasons to form this beautiful country? 

Media is a big deal these days. It’s certainly bigger than it was in 1776 or even 1976. If we are trying to make sure our media are free of Russian bots, it’s because of the divisiveness they cause – not just because they are Russian or bots. And so, if Fox News is not reporting truth and their agenda is dividing or polarizing the country – which seems to be the case – why do they get the blessings of the FCC? There has to be standards for media. We’ve got  plenty of examples of how media can affect our every day lives. Plenty. 

fox-nowThere could be standards set for media before they can call a produced show “news”. There is precedent for that. Many supplements can’t be called vitamins and are sold with this disclaimer. This product is not intended to treat, cure, diagnose or prevent any disease. That’s there to protect the public from false expectations. It’s also consistent with the spirit of the Constitution.

So I can imagine a TV show – which is also a product or something that is produced – might also need a disclaimer. We don’t want people to have false expectations about the information they are about to receive. That’s also not how the founders wanted it. Media regulation should be part of the Green New Deal. Get on it. Thank You.
