We Need That WW2 Teamwork Spirit Again Right Now

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

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

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

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

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

TEAMWORK

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

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

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

Love like a Democrat. Fight like a Republican.

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

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.

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

How they plan to end the American Democracy in 2020

Donald Trump first made his marks as a con man in NYC real estate, following in his father’s footsteps. If you had any doubt about that, consider the kind of man that opens a university touting it can help people be rich like him, but then proceeds to bilk his “students” out of their last savings -and without even teaching them anything of financial value. That’s a con man’s game. A pretty good con too, as who’s to say what an education is? And even at that, he settled for 25 million to dismiss the class-action suit.

Do you know what these con men do behind the scenes? They laugh about it all and exchange tales of who did the biggest con. How do I know this? I was brought up in Atlantic City and my first businesses were sort of Wharton School* versions of Nucky Thompson auction houses. I was a jeweler and art dealer on the boardwalk in the 70’s and 80’s. This is exactly what con men and even their employees talk about among themselves when they are not selling.

It’s as if they are all jealous of the guy making the biggest con. Even at family gatherings – weddings and funerals too – the men got together to talk about who made the biggest con like football players talk about great plays.

This is our president now. He is a con man and a crook – and everyone who ever did business with him knows that. An when he cons you – and lies and wins – he laughs with his friends and family and gets off on that. They laugh back too. Now as president, he has been allowed to surround himself with protectors within the structure of our body politic. So we are in real trouble here folks.

We need to start thinking how con men think. And because I was there once – at least close enough to witness real con men at work – ( I never bought into that world and got away when I could ) I am very well suited to tell the world what con man Trump will do next – and how to beat him at his own game.

There should be no doubt that Donald Trump has some sort of mutually profitable business partnership with Vladimir Putin . Everyone can see the Russians are hacking elections – here, there and everywhere – to get their business partners into public offices. Candidate Trump openly welcomed Russian election help, and President Trump is doing nothing to stop the hacking and influence campaigns for Election 2020. It should also be clear that Donald Trump owes Putin for election help and Putin fully expects to be paid back for his efforts.

I spoke to Ted Lieu about declaring election meddling to be an Act of War vs. the US Commonwealth. I explained to him that cyber war is still war – because the goals are the same as weapon war. The goal of war is to take something from another sovereign power. Affecting our free and fair elections takes more from us than any physical war could. It takes away our ability to steer the ship we call government for our own benefit. Ted told me that calling election meddling “war” – even “cyber war” was “incendiary”. It felt like he dismissed the idea. But categorizing election tampering as “Acts of Cyber War” would make what Trump, Guiliani and others are doing for Trump treasonous – which is what it is. And the punishments for treason are super high.

This is what I presented to Ted Lieu. It worth a quick read. https://englishcode.wordpress.com/2019/10/07/act-of-war/

Donald Trump is a Trojan Horse president. We essentially welcomed a criminal to be POTUS. He owes the world’s most dangerous person for his help in the 2016 election – and that help has begun for the 2020 election. These guys know they can’t win an honest election. They don’t want 2020 to be a fair election.

No one can say exactly what those two have promised to each other, but one thing is sure. If Putin leaks the details of their conversations, Trump would be arrested. But if Trump leaked to the Russian press, Putin would just laugh it off because no one can do anything to him. Putin has the upper hand in the Putin-Trump partnership – and that should worry all Americans. Putin also has total control of the Russian armed forces, police, press and it’s biggest businesses. Trump needs to get to that same place to avoid the justice that will certainly come his way when and if he becomes a citizen again.

Trump’s first recorded words, when Hillary called to concede were, “This should be interesting” – as if talking to himself. For weeks after, he went around saying “Can you believe it? I am president!” He did not prepare to be president at all. He was surprised, caught flat-footed – and a bit scared from the onset.

The moment Hillary conceded, Donald Trump knew he became the dog that caught the bus. That’s why he said “this should be interesting”. His thoughts turned to realizing that as president, his life of crimes and cons would be harder to keep out of the public domain. That’s why we’ve never see his taxes. He knows they will certainly incriminate him.

And now, Trump’s past crimes problem have become our problem. As much as Trump might seem to revel in this impeachment, he knows the term that follows his presidency may be a prison term. At the every least, Trump can’t be sure he won’t do jail time for what he has done – and must now continue to do.

So if you asked me, if Trump be willing to surrender to Putin in order to be president for life here – I’d tell you straight out – the answer is yes. He is already surrendering because he is letting Russians hack our elections again. In 2016, he was not yet president when he worked with Putin to rig the election. Obama should have shut Trump down when he could have, but he thought Trump would lose, so he let it go. That was Obama’s big mistake. It has become our nightmare.

Trump is now stuck trying to legally become the first dictator of the USA. But know that Donny is just a con man. He does not think six moves ahead like his poli-sci teacher, Vladimir Putin, who is not only Trump’s business partner in these crimes, but clearly the senior partner in the relationship.

putin-hockey

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

It’s as if Putin said whatever Trump does – he does legally – in accordance with US laws. Why would he say that? When Trump asked Putin, in their private meetings in Helsinki, how he took over Russia – which is “such a big country” Putin told him how he did it. I am sure it sounded something like this. “Donny. You can’t use force at first. First, I used existing Russian laws to grab more power. When I had enough power, I changed the laws. Then I shut down the free press, took the businesses and become president for life. You can do this too. I will teach you. ”

Putin informed Trump how to take over the USA the way he took Russia. And he leaked it to the CBS reporter with a smirk. These con men all like to leak-brag a bit. Remember when Trump told Bill Barr at the Rose Garden something to the effect of ” God speed – have a great life”? That was Trump leak/bragging about his job interview with Barr – wherein he got a promise of loyalty in return for payments in foreign bank accounts. That’s how these criminals operate – each and every time. Thick as thieves.

Why did Trump grab the interpreter’s notes in Helsinki? Those conversations were the height of treason. Watch Trump’s body language as he follows Putin to the stage and says “Putin very powerfully told me he didn’t do it”. It’s as if he had just been read the riot act moments before they took the stage. The words “very powerfully” were a leak. They leaked that Trump had just seen a powerful presentation of Putin’s entire game plan for world dominance – and also how he had the goods on Trump if he was not going along with it.

Now as to why Putin cares so much about getting more powerful – when he already has Russia – you have to understand why autocracies and democracies are natural born enemies. The autocrats are criminals that have ascended to power and they don’t want their citizens to find out that there are places where citizens enjoy free and fair elections. And it’s hard today, with the internet, to keep citizens from finding out how the other side lives. There’s no Iron Curtain any more – though the Chinese sure try at this – don’t they? This post explains that we are fighting criminals – not statesmen. The map in this post is a must see. https://englishcode.wordpress.com/2019/03/30/dictator-map/

Trump only has the brains and patience to handle the “big stuff”. He is not a detail person – never was – never will be. He is a con man. I worked with these guys for 20 years. They are all the same on many levels.

I want to end this post with links to a few more posts and this news that just came across. On Monday, January 13th, Bill Barr told reporters that any counterintelligence investigations into presidential campaigns will require his approval. In this post from months ago, I explained what the post-Senate acquittal world will look like. It’s going to start resembling Putin’s Russia around here and fast. It has to in order for Trump to follow in Putin’s footsteps.

The silencing of the Free Press will begin within a few days after his acquittal. They will say he is acquitted – and that any attempt to go after him again is presidential harassment – a term they have leaked before. Barr will make it illegal to go after Trump any more – as long as he is president. He will try to make it illegal for the house to bring new charges as well.

This is why I do not support Pelosi turning this over to Mitch until she knows exactly what the rules are and it is agreed that there will be witnesses, documents and – most importantly – Trump’s taxes.

Simply put, you can’t have a trial for obstructing justice and allow the indicted to obstruct justice within that trial. It just does not add up. I believe even if they do allow witnesses, the sold out GOP will not vote against Trump regardless of what they hear – as many are complicit in his criminality. We won’t like the post senate acquittal world at all. So why go there?

Love like a democrat, fight like a Republican. That is my battle cry. McConnell held up a SCOTUS nominee for ten months. We can hold this fake impeachment up for two or three months or at least until we get witnesses and documents – which should include taxes. We won’t get another chance to do this right.

When the weather breaks, the public can put the pressure on the 22 GOP senators that are up for election this cycle. This is all moving too fast – and the GOP likes it. That alone should inform Nancy to hold off and blame Trump and the GOP to wait for all three things – witnesses, documents and taxes. – Just blame the delay on the indicted president’s obstruction. Then walk and chew gum for a few months.

*And yes, I sat in a class with Donny Trump in 1967 – and he cheated then too. He paid a classmate to do his work. That’s cheating.

The First Crisis of the Decade

POTUS Must Be Transparent Now

SENATE TRIAL

Dear Nancy: This is the most important trial in American history. Do not allow justice to be obstructed within this trial. – Remember, this is also a trial for Trump’s obstruction of justice. The Senate trial should not proceed until it allows witnesses and documents – like any other trial. Full stop.

Wait for Mitch to see the light. He is up for election and his popularity is waning in Kentucky. Public pressure will increase after the Spring thaw. That’s just how the world works. Occupy Wall Street ended in the winter. Weather is a factor and hope is renewed and energized every spring. Don’t fight nature.

This delay is not hurting Democratic candidates. Just blame the delay on one word: OBSTRUCTION. Just say you are not going to allow Donald J Trump and his cult to conduct a sham trial in the US Senate. If Mitch has not budged by February, respond with if we have to wait for the election, then the voters in the USA and in Kentucky can have the final say on the fairness, witnesses, and documents in what is the most important trial in American history.

If the Senate trial begins and proceeds without those rules in place, we are saying uncovering the truth in Trump’s Senate trial, arguably the most important trial in American history – and maybe in world history – is less important to us than any mundane trial. It’s ridiculous.

IRANIAN ASSASSINATION

The Soleimani assassination was an act of war done without consulting Congress. It’s clear the Iranians will look at this assassination as an act of war and will respond that way. What would we think if the Iranian Government sent a drone here and assassinated a general? People are the same everywhere.

Trump certainly stepped on Congress’s constitutionally ordained right to declare war, keeping them out of the loop. Angus King just said, Congress abdicated it’s right during the Reagan era and must now reclaim it. Congress. Do so and now. Nothing else will tell the Middle East we recognize the need to reign in our loose cannon POTUS like taking the steps to do so.

The man in the WH would blow the entire world up to save his small empire. We have been warned. Next time we won’t be so lucky.

To this observer’s eye, we have an inept, ill-prepared dolt in charge of our international affairs. American are losing with him at the helm in all arenas except the stock market which only measures how the top 10% of Americans are doing.

The president’s powers – including his war and pardon powers – are ceded to him by the people of the United States and they are his powers to use if and only if he is acting in the interest of the American Commonwealth. A president has no right to use those powers for his own self. Nixon made that error. So did Benedict Arnold.

It’s clear Trump no longer has the full trust of the majority of Americans. Once a POTUS violates his oath of office and is indicted and impeached should he still have those war and pardon powers? I don’t think so. It is certainly not in the interest of the Americans to allow a president to continue to serve if he is using his granted powers for his own self – which at every turn of events – seems to be the case with Donald J Trump.

Sequestering Trump’s pardon powers are just as important as overseeing his war powers. Why? Because Trump enrolls loyalists and entices them to break laws with the promise he will pardon them if they remain loyal.

Our biggest mistake in 2016 was allowing a man to run for president while concealing his taxes. Trump still won’t show his taxes. Trump’s taxes will not only reveal the nature of his financial dealings with Russia but also any other forms of cheating or gaming the system. He is already suspected of tax evasion to the tune of 500 million dollars, starting as far back as the 1980’s. His taxes would answer questions we need to be certain that Trump is not engaging in corruption, tax evasion, self-dealing and/or traitorous behavior. There’s so much we don’t know – and won’t know – until we have Trump’s taxes

  • Did Trump directly or indirectly pay Russians to hack our election?
  • Does he owe Russians money?
  • Is he trying to square a debt?
  • Does Trump have dealings with any foreign countries that hold sway over our national security decisions?
  • Why did we sell Saudi Arabia our nuclear secrets?
  • Why does his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, have security clearance in spite of warnings from seasoned security experts?
  • Why did he order Soleimani assassinated?

This is now way past the point of a crisis. Most Americans now deem the Trump presidency is our #1 national security emergency. Globally, Trump is now ranked to be the world’s most dangerous person – ranking more dangerous than Chairman Kim and Putin.

One thing is certain. Trump has not done all he can to be truthful, cooperative and helpful to the American people. Has Trump engaged in activities which, if done by any other citizen except the POTUS, would be indictable criminal behavior. If Trump was innocent of crimes, he would happily allow witnesses, docs, and show his taxes to put all the suspicion behind him. So his refusal to cooperate only adds to our collective suspicion.

And it is also certain that Congress has the right and the duty to be a check on presidential power. In order to do that task, the POTUS must be transparent and cooperative. IF POTUS will not be transparent – and this one won’t – that increases both the risk and the power of Congress to seize things like taxes and translator’s notes, etc. 

Only 35% of Americans think Trump is honest according to a Quinnipiac poll. All Americans participated in that poll – both sides.

Quinniac Poll link

Remember these two things: Destroying the USA is a Putin Goal – Trump likes putin

And it gets worse. Every day Trump is in office, we are spending countless millions of taxpayer dollars – not to make healthcare better, not to make infrastructure better and not dealing with our real issues. Every day he has been in office – since day one – we have been wasting our energies and taxpayer dollars guarding his many homes, paying for his golf, paying our congressmen to squabble, fighting among ourselves and addressing the many indicted criminals and spies in his orbit. The endless discussions proceed ad nauseum for all Americans. Except for Trump. Trump loves watching others suffer and rigging his created fights.

So what do we do about our situation? These no cost steps will prevent a crisis.

Two Presidential Powers Must Be Taken Away from Trump

In the interest of national security and in lieu of the long process of impeachment – until Donald Trump allows witnesses to testify openly and shows his taxes our elected representatives should remove two of his presidential powers: 

  1. The power to declare war, shall reside solely with the Congress until we know “what the heck is going on” ( as Trump would say). Our current Congress may actually like this idea. They get war powers. And they are supposed to have that power anyway. Why should it reside with one man who is under so much traitorous suspicion?   
  2. The power to pardon anyone connected to Trump, the Trump Organization or campaign.  It’s ridiculous to allow anyone to pardon the accomplices in one’s own crimes. He can pardon anyone not in his circle, that’s fine.

Trump asks our sons to risk dying for our country. What will he risk? So far nothing. Our presidents owe us transparency. If he won’t do these small things – show his taxes and allow transparency -to save us all time, money, energy and trouble, then it will be clear to nearly everyone that Trump has no loyalty except to himself. And that is not the role of the POTUS.

Trump has already shown us that creating an international crisis or suspending the constitution– is not out of his playbook. Like a cornered rat fighting for his life, Trump will stop at nothing to save his ill-gotten fortune. We don’t want to wait and find out how far he will go. Trump will go all the way – to the guns!

That’s really why we must take away his power to make war and pardon his friends. Trump must be forced to be open and honest for the first time in his life – to keep Americans safe!

We got Trump because we allowed someone to run for president without being transparent about his taxes. A smart option is for new Congress would be to create a law that says no one can run or serve as POTUS (or in Congress) without showing 6 years of taxes. This would help most get rid of the criminal elements in our government. If Trump had to show his taxes to run in 2020, he would not run. That’s why he works so hard not to show them.

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.

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

Until 2016, cyber warfare seemed to refer to something that could happen in the near future.

noun: cyber-warfare
  1. the use of computer technology to disrupt the activities of a state or organization, especially the deliberate attacking of information systems for strategic, economic or military purposes. From KYBER (Greek) cognate with GOVERN

cyberwarAfter World War II ended in 1945, a new world order was established. The United States assumed the dominant position in that new world order for having won the war and for having the biggest weapon, the A-bomb. Russia never fully accepted subservience to the USA. And so the Cold War era – with wars waged without bullets – was born. The main weapon of this cold war was espionage carried out by spies. 

The 50’s-60’s cold war era cooled down over time, but it never fully went away. Since the advent of the internet, the weapons of that cold war – have increasingly become electronic. It’s now called cyber-warfare. Cyber warfare summoned up visions like electric grids gone down, banks hacked and drained of cash reserves, and even cars that drive off cliffs. But until 2016, it always seemed to refer to something that was going to happen in the near future.  In countries that still have free and fair elections, election meddling that favors “Manchurian” candidates, friendly to the attackers’ country, is one major objective of cyber war.

Cyber-warfare is no longer a thing of the future. The hacking of the US 2016 presidential election will be remembered historically as the first major attack in the“Cyber Warfare Era”. Vladimir Putin will be dubbed cyber warfare’s first grand master. 

WHAT IS WAR?

Historically, what are the objectives when launching an offensive war?  Those would be stealing resources or territories that do not properly belong to the attacker. Offensive war is an attempt at piracy. It’s done for booty. And then there is the defensive response and a two-way war is on. 

The Russian election hack of 2016 was a war against democracy, and we must defend ourselves once again just the way the WW2 generation did for us, laying down their lives in the 1940’s. This post explains why dictatorships seek to exterminate democratic countries. It’s not complicated. It’s one planet and two philosophies: self-governance by the people or strong man iron fist rule. They don’t coexist very well – especially in this internet social media world where information about free countries can get to the people who live in dictatorships. 

Both the intelligence evidence and public consensus is now that Putin/Russia attacked the United States in 2016 via acts of cyber-warfare to get their chosen man elected to president of the United States. The USA have already lost the Cyber War of 2016! 

The cyber war of 2016 was not initiated for fun  – it was initiated for booty.  The cyber-war winners expect payoffs. That’s how war works. Elections have consequences – but so does surrendering to the enemy! 

The Cyber War of 2016 is over, but they are gearing up to have another go at it in 2020. This big question still remains.  

Now that the Russian cyber-warfare is getting exposed, will Putin still get what he wanted from his horse in the race, so to speak? Putin used his mastery of cyber warfare to help put Trump in as POTUS for concrete reasons. Those reasons are Putin’s agendas of lifting sanctions, acquiring resources, money and territories – the very same objectives desired in an offensive war waged with bullets and bombs.  

OR

Will the laws, traditions, citizenry and deep backbone of the USA resist with such solidarity that Putin’s man in office, Donald Trump, is rendered powerless to give Putin what he bargained for? 

Will we resist this Russian coupe of our executive branch so that Putin’s horse in the race, Donald Trump, is exposed for espionage and indicted for the crimes he and his teams committed?

It should be clear to all of us, if we don’t expose and indict the perpetrators of this cyber warfare attack, we are giving those same players a green pass to do this over and over again. 

And if we swiftly don’t make 100% sure this cannot happen again, it will be the same as if we had lost a war waged with bullets and signed terms of surrender. Yes, less bodies. That’s a new age technology perk. I guess it’s historically cool –  but maybe not for us.

It sort of compared to the Trojan Horse story. Trump is sort of a Trojan Horse if you think about it. Welcomed by his supporters, he gains access to the military and judicial arms of government and turns on those who welcomed him. 

It occurs to me that cyber warfare has come of age because our modern, high-tech nuclear and biological weapons are now so lethal that they really cannot be used. A need for warfare without death evolved – a way to get what one wants from war, without the fallout from actual war. 

As of today, November 2020 is about 400 days away. We immediately need open-sourced hack-proof voting systems. These are not expensive. The technology already exists. Or we can use paper trails. Why is this not being installed by Trump’s GOP? You can guess that! It’s not the way they can win in 2020. Trump’s GOP is not in the majority in the USA. They can’t win the Senate or the House in a fair election. 

Congress! Citizens! Stop bickering about walls, gays, right-to-choose, and what is not important. This infighting is exactly what Putin wants!  Putin even said that in his acceptance speech. Or are you okay with us fully surrendering to Putin? Restrict Trump’s war and pardon powers now – at least while the impeachment is on. There is no telling what Trump will do. A cornered rat will bite. By announcing we are out of the Mideast today, Trump essentially surrendered to Putin. Expect more surrendering of our interests. Myself. I consider this treasonous. 

The Dems should choose a team – a candidate, VP, Secretary of State and DA (super important to prosecute the criminals that have taken over our government) and RUN AS A TEAM! This is a war! Act like it!

The famous Greeks strategy at Thermopolae was to focus resources against great numbers and odds. But Dem campaign dollars are being thinned out over a dozen candidates who all have the same basic message: beat Trump. 

The hacking of the US 2016 presidential election will be remembered as the first major attack in “the cyber warfare era” and Vladimir Putin will be dubbed its first grand master.

Now please read these next posts. They outline a strategy to win control of our country back and take back the loss we experienced in the Cyber War of 2016.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

The rest was written during the 2019 G7 meeting.

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

mad-trump

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I would like to hear something like this from Macron:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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