“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.

Election Meddling by Foreigners Is an Act of War

This is a plan to get Trump to stand down and resign. Read this post. 5 minutes. If you feel this is a winning idea, get this to the powers that be or put it in your own words. I am ready to send it to Mitt Romney if the Dem powers don’t take this up. And I think he will take it. It’s also a perfect way for Mitt to challenge Trump.

TREASON is defined as act of Betrayal during WAR

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


What is a war but an effort to take something from another sovereign country?


We have the Mueller Report saying Russia attacked our elections in a sweeping systematic way. 

Let’s declare the Russian aggression in the 2016 national elections to have been an Act of War!

Let’s declare meddling in our 2020 elections to be an act of war as well.

Can you imagine Trump saying this is a bad idea? I bet we could get GOP support for this quickly. Their base wont stand for selling out to Russia.

That makes everything Trump has been doing treasonous. It also makes everything BARR and POMPEO and the others – are doing – TREASONOUS. 

To those that say “we do this to other countries”, I say if we do, we must stop. The world is watching for the USA to lead again. We lead via the moral high ground. The world is disappointed in our presidency – and if we don’t do something about it soon, they will also blame the character of our people. To those who ask, “what retaliatory steps would be in order”, I say severe economic sanctions and not military responses are proper here. Players in the dis-information game must know there will be a heavy price to pay for interfering in or attempting to influence our national elections.

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

This is what the emoluments clause was placed in the Constitution for.

 

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

THEN ITS DONE. The game will be over. Expect the few that have taken money to play along. But Today – even McConnell wavered. 

Its not like we are attacking Trump. We declare what RUSSIA DID to be an act of war. It was, right? What is a war but an effort to take something from another sovereign country?

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX! Think like a TEAM, THINK likes it’s WW2. 
The other thing we may have to do is LIMIT TRUMPS WAR AND PARDON POWERS during impeachment! That may not not easy. Do #1 and the rest may be easy.

Turn the GOP & MAGA folk by appealing to their patriotism.

If we can’t get Trump to resign, next year is too late.

Further, I think Trump wants a deal to step down. He knows Putin can’t force him to do his bidding if he is not POTUS. And who knows what is in Putin’s pipeline? Oh yes. He told Trump that very powerfully in Helsinki. Did he threaten Trump? Probably. Most likely?

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

Trump signaled for a deal on Ukraine, but the right ears did not hear the fullness of what he meant to say. They need to understand his code. I do because I was sort of inside that world at one stage of my life in AC.

Trump knows what we are seeing is the tip of the iceberg in a life of crime. He will do ANYTHING to keep that from coming out. In the back of our minds, we all knew he was always sold out to his own interests. It took some longer than others to see it. But we all see that now with Ukraine and Syria. And we see he is a threat to our national security. And that cannot stand!

The USA’s enemies have real dirt on POTUS. After what we just saw in Syria, it’s clear they are flexing their muscles and using that dirt against Trump – and more importantly against us – the the citizens of the USA. Expect more of the same as these investigations get closer to full disclosure. So one more goal for our national security. War powers should reside with Congress and the Generals while impeachment is ongoing. This is just common sense. I should not have to explain the wisdom in that check on his power.

war powers should reside with Congress and the Generals while impeachment is ongoing.

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

The rest was written during the 2019 G7 meeting.

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

mad-trump

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I would like to hear something like this from Macron:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Can We Stop Our President from Spewing Hate?

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

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

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

Image result for shithole nation

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

America Won WW2 Because We Worked Together as a Team

We Need WW2 Teamwork Again Now

Whoever wins the nomination should at least offer the VP office to the #2 candidate. Keep the base support from fizzling out, like it did when HRC chose Kaine not Bernie. Let’s show the American people we can unite our party. They will respect that.

After all, if we cant unite the “left” how can we 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 that sells our rights and assets to the highest bidders. And at the same time, we are at war with each other – which makes it very difficult to prevail in anything.

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. They were the greatest generation because they resigned to do their parts to defeat German Nationalism without ego and with a spirit of teamwork.

We all know there’s an election in 2020. But the way things are going, with our country being weakened every day – we are barely limping towards that election. Trump knows exactly how long he has to completely take this government over – from the justice department to election fixing. He’s working every day to have our democracy gone be end of this year. Trump knows the term that follows his presidential term is a prison term.

I see a way to get the current GOP Senate to vote to impeach Trump before Christmas. 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

In September, after one more debate, the viable candidates 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.

Will this surprise tactic of running for president with a VP and cabinet in place – work? Better to think how can it not work.

First, 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 even be our candidate because we don’t know. In case they won’t like whom we choose, they stay now with what they know – Trump. They will remain tuned out to our overtures until we decide.

The big idea is to not preach to the choir and get our GOP constituents in red states to start liking what they are seeing and hearing. Imagine 20 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. This is powerful out-of-the-box thinking.  

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 KellyAnne 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. 

So I put together a team ( below) that cannot lose. It doesn’t have to be this team exactly. But Trump would have a 0% chance against this team. And when the GOP Senate sees that clearly, they are going to go for impeachment. They won’t even want Trump running.

Then Trump can be out by this Christmas. Merry Christmas everyone.

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 is in there too.

How does this fresh idea look you? Does it look like Team America 2020? This is easy folks. There’s no room for it’s all about me now.

Why NOT RUN AS A TEAM? TEAM AMERICA 2020

President, Joe Biden Vice President, Elizabeth Warren

Attorney General, Kamala Harris Secretary of State, Pete Buttigieg

Secretary of Treasury, Andrew Yang Director of National Intelligence, Adam Schiff Secretary of the Interior, Amy Klobuchar Secretary of Agriculture, Tim Ryan Secretary of Commerce, Tom Steyer CIA director, Dan Coates Chief of Staff, Pete Buttigieg Secretary of Education, Marrianne Williamson Secretary of Energy, Jay Inslee Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Tulsi Gabbard Secretary of Labor, Bernie Sanders Secretary of Health and Human Services – Kirsten Gillebrand Environmental Protection Agency Head – Beto O’Rourke Secretary of Housing and Urban Development – Cory Booker Secretary of Transportation, Bill de Blasio

It’s all about the money right now. Very soon that should change however. It’s going to be clean food and clean energy if we are going to survive as a species. Look for rising food prices to signal the onset of a new – or final – dynamic for the human race. Why is it all about money now? For that answer – this post is a must read.
