3/18/18 If you missed it, this is Putin’s acceptance speech, translated.

Thank you, my friends. Thank you. We won in an open and fair fight, but this was not just a presidential election. This was also a very important test for all of us, for our whole country. It was a test of our political ripeness, self-sufficiency and independence.

We showed well and truly that no one can impose their will on us. We have showed that our people are truly capable of distinguishing between the thrust for newness and renovation and political provocation that has as its goal only one aim: to demolish Russia and usurp its power. The Russian people declared today that such choices and scenarios will not succeed on our soil. 

We won today, and thanks to the support of the overwhelming majority of our electors, we conducted a clean victory. We will work fairly and diligently. And we are calling everyone to come together around the interests of our people and our motherland. I promised you that we would conquer. We have conquered. Long live Russia.


Diagnosis: This is pretty straight-forward. 

#1. Putin does have to rebuke the stench of election tampering, just the way Trump does.

#2. Putin clearly states that election tampering will not succeed on Russian soil. We all know its OK for him to tamper in elections that are not on Russian soil, like in the USA and France.

#3 Putin asks for Russians to come together. He knows a divided country is a weakened country. That is exactly what he is trying to do to democracies in Western countries: divide and weaken or perhaps divide and conquer! 

Putin is clearly not a friend to democracy. We must treat him as an enemy of democracy and fight back with cyber weapons, the way he fought us. We don’t have a president willing to do that now. In fact, our current president wanted to get a tower with his name on it built in Moscow, and has plenty of money at risk in undeclared foreign bank accounts. This is money that can be taken from him if he does not play ball with this enemy of democracy. And Trump loves money more than he loves his country or his wives. 

The Trump presidency has become a huge problem for our country. Allowing a criminal money launderer to run for president was never a good idea. Going forward we must insist that candidates provide years of tax returns and declare all foreign bank accounts to hold public office. This is why Trump won’t show his taxes. He is and has been a criminal for a long time.

The Cure for America:

Vote out all Trump-aligned politicians in 2018. This is key. Trump and the GOP have about 200 days left to screw up our country. Then, like the Parkland kids say – if they build a wall, we tear it down. If they passed an unfair bill, we undo it. We can undo all the bad things Trump and his party have done to America if we retake the majority in our houses in November. And we can also punish all who colluded with Trump in this criminal coupe of the executive branch and make sure it never happens again. 

200 days GOP. Have fun. That’s what your president said when he took office right? We’re going to have some fun with this. Enjoy it while you can. 200 days and you are mostly all gone! And we can all thank Trump for that. If one good thing will come out of the Trump presidency, its going to be him exposing how sick our politics have become and allowing us to recognize our issues.

We have a diagnosis. Our elections were meddled in. The voter’s minds were hacked by a Russian man who has no stake in democracy, because he only remains in power through fascism. The cure for this disease is easy really because the disease is not living in the majority of American people; our greedy elected representatives are the infected ones.

They can be voted out in 200 days. 






Trump Alone Can Break Us. But 2018 Is 1968 On Social Media #Vote Them Out

I joined the protesters in Beverly Hills on the night Trump was in LA. Thousands of people, from all walks of life, some with kids, marched with home-made banners to have their voices be heard. There was a giant Trump balloon, and I put one  of my VOTE THEM ALL OUT stickers on his blue suit ass. It looked great. There was music, food and reporters. One group of Indivisibles dressed up as Russians and did satire. What was witnessed was something I am calling TrumpLash. #TrumpLash . Consider helping spread that hashtag/meme. It’s a winner. Pardon my Trumpism. 

Like a joke that is repeated too often and is no longer funny, Trump’s greatest hits are starting to really annoy Americans … everywhere. As people flee his inner circle, there is a growing sense that he really does not know what he is doing in his new role. He may have been OK as a reality TV star but he seems totally incompetent as POTUS. And all these job evacuees are costing us. It’s hard to get stuff done when your staff keeps changing. Projects are left unfinished. And the endless vetting processes for new staff are time consuming, draining and expensive.  Why would reasonable people be annoyed?

In 400 days, 43% of Trump’s top cabinet picks are gone . Many have stepped down, some have been fired, and some have even plead guilty to crimes. Trump said he would get the best people. But we now know that 43% of the time, his first choices were not solid choices. They’re gone. So they were not the best people after all, were they? And if that is the case, why would we trust him for anything if he gets it right only 4 times out of 7 ? We expect better in the USA. And for international diplomacy, 3 out of 7 wrong is a very dangerous stat. Imagine if Kennedy was wrong on the Cuban Missile Crisis or Roosevelt about Hitler. 

It is now also clear Trump’s hotheaded gut reactions are materially damaging the GOP party that he is aligned with. Why on earth would a thoughtful leader fire his Secretary of State on the same day of a tight election in Pennsylvania? That’s pure stupidity. It could have waited. That election was lost by less than 1%. I am sure that some percentage of GOP voters heard about that firing, and decided it was the straw that broke the camels’ back for them. They heard about the firing and switched their vote for the Dem. – or against the person in the WH. Same thing. There is clear evidence that Trump alone can break this (country).  People everywhere are beginning to catch on to that.  If we let him, he will break our democracy to save his neck. 

Welcome to the Spring of 2018. The weather is going to warm up. People will turn to the streets in numbers. Students were out today. They say it’s for better gun laws. But Trump is not going to do anything about gun control. He is too distracted trying to escape prosecution for his crimes. The underlying protest is against Donald J Trump. It’s TrumpLash. #TrumpLash

Even if he wanted to, Trump has effectively lost the public mandate to rule effectively. His approval ratings are at historic lows. And he never intended to work hard for Americans in the first place.  In his life, he has only ever schemed and cheated to benefit himself. Work? Working for others is not part of the Trump ethic. Serving his country? He was a draft dodger. Still has that mentality. His kids never served either. Not like Biden at all.

When he won, he said” OK, we’re going to have some fun with this“. That’s a quote. If it’s not fun for Trump, he does not get into it very much. Golf OK. Sex with strangers, very OK. Such a poor choice for president we have made. And we mostly all know it by now.

So what are we going to do about it America? The Spring and Summer of 2018 is going to be historic. The world really is watching us on this one. What’s it going to be?





What’s Really Behind Trump’s Announced North Korean Meeting?

jong-unDonald Trump announced today that he wants to meet with Kim Jong-un in May to discuss denuclearization. But was it Donald Trump, Jong-un, our generals, or Vladimir Putin – who first imagined this newly announced meeting? Let’s follow the money and logical trails and see if we can draw some conclusions. 

#1 The Washington Post reported in December 2017 that some of the more advanced missiles recently put on display by North Korea were acquired with help from Russia. This was according to actual documents from one of the top Soviet missile manufacturers. That’s a solid source of information. So Russia is working with North Korea, and clearly Putin has some pretty decent pull with Kim Jong-un. 

#2 On February 3, 2017, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un sent out Lunar New Year greeting cards to numerous world leaders, highlighting his international allies. He listed Russia at the top of his list, relegating China to second place and Cuba to third. His symbolic show of solidarity with the Kremlin has also been accompanied by a string of economic deals with Russia. North Korea is also beholden to Russia owing to its geographical situation. North Korea is to Russia is like Delaware is to the United States. 

#3 On January 31 2017, Russia’s state news agency, TASS, reported that Russia Railways representatives visited North Korea to discuss an expansion of railway links between the two countries.  They share a border. Both parties agreed to expand training for North Korean engineers at Russian universities.

The obvious conclusion is that Putin and Jong-un are working together – and in that relationship clearly Putin has the upper hand.

Putin also has a huge stake in Trump’s success because there’s a 500 billion dollar oil deal he wanted Tillerson/Exxon for, owing to Obama’s sanctions against Russia for Putin invading Crimea. This is why Putin wanted Tillerson and not Romney. Putin also has the upper hand on Trump. ( Interesting that Tillerson is out now. My sense is that he was too much of a patriot, to cow-tow to Trump, a person he considered a moron. Kudos to Rex. )

Trump and Putin are clearly both very greedy men, salesmen more than statesmen, and they have their eyes on the biggest monetary deal in the history of man

So what is behind Trump’s May rendezvous with Kim Jong-un?

We can already see the one major result of Trump’s North Korean meeting: it takes the main focus of news reporting off the Russian story, where Trump cannot get a break, largely because the criminality and truth is slowly coming to light.  

We have clear evidence that Korea is working with Putin, so Putin is obviously in on this May meeting with Trump and Jong-un. Putin may even have directed it. They all have back-channels. Taking the heat off Trump increases Putin’s chance of getting that oil deal, which if Trump is ousted, he will never get – and he knows that. 

With all three players tractably and directly connected, what we are witnessing is nothing more than a choreographed staged show designed to make it seem like a big global problem is about to be solved by Donald Trump. And that buys Trump time to keep the Russian heat away. I don’t think this will turn out to be anything more than that. A stalling tactic coordinated by Putin to help Trump – probably for that oil deal which is what he wanted when he started helping Trump with “bots” and “spies”. 

Plus if they really wanted to solve the problem, they could use a phone or face time tomorrow. But that is NOT the goal. The goal is stall and put on a show and keep the public eye off the criminal activity that went on, and goes on daily in this White House. Trump has stopped the formality of  documenting who visits the White House. He does not even want us to know who he is working with here in the USA, let alone the foreign spies. Our diplomatic corps has been slashed to pieces. He has sold us out – not just Manafort. 

And Trump still won’t show his taxes for fear of what? Please fill that in yourself. But it’s not because he never gave much to charity or he is under audit.  I assume it’s because his taxes reveal ties to the shadowy regimes he has been working with for years. I assume its because he launders his money because he hates to pay tax to the USA and take part in any serious building of America with his dollars. That sort of patriotism has always been for suckers in his “don’t tax me” mind.  I assume that reasonable people know he won’t show taxes because it will reveal that Trump is a criminal. 

Trump knows its harder to attack a president when there are wars or peace negotiations going on. So maybe this entire event is part of a few coordinated staged events to get the news off Trump’s Russian connections. And working backwards, this cynical logic is already proving out. It’s working. And nothing else makes much sense.

manchurian-bwIf Trump stays in power, it increases Putin’s chance that the 500 billion-dollar oil deal will happen. And of course, Trump gets a percentage of that deal, deposited into one of those secret bank accounts that he refuses to disclose to us. That’s how these deals are made.

I always assume that people with known greed disease, like Putin and Trump have shown they have one main objective: to gain more dollars. It’s how greedy people measure their success. Neither Putin nor Trump has shown the world, or their citizens any real care for their constituents. Have they? They are clearly both in this for themselves. They would both feel out of their skin to become charitable souls. We all know that. Trump supporters know this too. 

So media people! Please do not get distracted by this sudden North Korea thing; it’s a coordinated staged show.  Yong-un will likely change his mind when it gets down to actual denuclearization. It is still a favorite to be a nothing-burger with Kim walking away, and a net effect of stalling for time and making Trump appear to be presidential. 

Stay on the Russian/Trump investigation. You will eventually discover that the Russians recruited Trump – and that was done for the Russian oil deal . They have three more years to get that done if we don’t impeach Trump and Tillerson. It’s worth that time to make 500 billion, right? It’s a long con, as its called in carny world.

Neither Trump nor Putin can outrun the Blue Wave of 2018!

If we VOTE THEM OUT in 2018, we can flip the house and that changes everything. And it is beginning to feel like this can happen. Almost no average American wants the GOP’s no-care health bill . Why would people vote for any GOP candidates in 2018? 

Saving some huge political event, there are only two realistic avenues to save America from the current Putin/Trump regime, which is what we have now. 

#1 Mueller gets to the truth on the Russian hack, and shows us all that Trump was in on it before November. That would do it.  

#2 The country votes out all sold-out congressmen in 2018. It looks like the pendulum is swinging in that direction. So stay vocal! Then we impeach Trump. 

This oil deal is what the Russian election campaign was all about. It is worth at least a 25 billion dollars (5% commission)  for Trump and 475 billion for Putin. Putin and Trump are salesmen, trying to make a “score”, which is what they call it.  I know this because I went to that same depression-survivor sales school as Trump did. It’ s why we ended up in a class together at Wharton School of Finance.

trumpHowever, this type of selling was not taught at Wharton. It was taught at Trump’s dinner table, while growing up. I got fed the same lines – I just made different decisions about them. And that’s why Trump thanked his long-deceased father at his acceptance speech. The thank you was lightly glossed over by the media, but it was actually a big deal for Trump who had serious father issues.

There was real generation gap between the spoiled kids of the 1960’s and the children of the Great Depression. Listen to Frank Zappa to learn about that.

Trump finally got closure on his father issue with a brief statement made to the deceased. It’s probably something he never told him when he was alive. It was his way of saying, “dad you were right all along”. It actually was one of the most human and honest statements Trump has ever made.

Media! Stay on the real story – the Trump/Putin coordination.

Do not get distracted by the staging we are witnessing. We will get more of it. It’s all the guilty can do. We will get to the obvious truth, but only if we stay focused on what our collective logic is telling us. We have elected a criminal. He is an outlying member of the Russian mafia, which deals in global money laundering. 


Very few Americans love Trump so much that if they knew he was a Russian agent, witting or not, they would be OK with it. Right?    Right?


Security Clearances – “Thick As Thieves” and The ‘CLEAN HOUSE’ Bill

Over thirty top staffers in the White House don’t have security clearance. Without uniform and thorough vetting processes, those who are privy to top secrets can be blackmailed by their past connections, crimes and embarrassing behavior. Well duh – but what’s the point of vetting staffers if their boss, the president, refuses to be vetted and is suspect of being compromise-able?

manchurian-bwDoes it occur to anyone that a US president should also be vetted for security? And yes, maybe they should be vetted before they are even allowed to be candidates. But that would be for 2020, I guess. For now, the president is actually the most important person in the US to be un-compromised and un-compromise-able.  Think about it. Without presidential vetting in place, we have created a safe space – a gun-free zone so to speak – for a potus to commit crimes and engage in self-dealing without reproach. And now that Kushner has been found using the White House to get large business loans, its clear that self-dealing was the intention of the president and his generals when they took office.  How rampant is this?  Very rampant! A dirty boss would want to surround himself with other like-minded criminals, so they are naturally loyal to each other. No Boy Scouts allowed. Thick as thieves, they used to say.

Does any senator or congressman or person have the guts to propose a bill that says “going forward, no one can work in the White House without security clearance, the president included.” That is in the public interest, is it not? Representatives are supposed to be working in the public interest. This is a damning failure in job performance and likely not to be advanced because many of them fear that scrutiny would expose their own crimes. 

Trump says he cares about protecting Americans. How is allowing insecure staffers get top secret info “caring” about security? It is not. So we must care for ourselves here. We can’t be stupid. Trump’s early campaign line was “How stupid are the people of Iowa?” Well America, how stupid are we going to be about security clearances in the White House or the Congress for that matter?

I want to propose a CLEAN HOUSE BILL. And we can state the exact vetting process by which ALL campaigners for high office, and even current office holders will be subject to. No exceptions. This is security. It must be applied to all with the exact same standards, regardless of the position of said vetted person, POTUS included.

Can someone please advance this notion in a bill, ASAP? With that in place, we would not need Mueller to investigate Russia to hold Trump accountable to some degree. I would think declaring 5 years of taxes would be part of any vetting process. It’s a new day. We must be smarter, or we will lose this democracy this year. 

Trump Is Buying the Government

Trump has been buying key people to escape justice for the crimes of espionage, money laundering and tax evasion. His modus operandi has always been to bribe or enrich certain key people to smooth the way for his crimes and projects. Right now, his only project of concern is avoiding prosecution for Russia. If he loses that battle, he loses his freedom and his family fortune. He’d rather sell the country out that have that happen. That’s why we don’t see any support to stop Russian meddling in 2018 or even implement a Russian sanction. They are his allies!  It’s not in his interest to sanction Russia as a criminal president – and he will need to stay in power to keep his fortune. And of course, if he sells Russia out, they will leak the whole ugly truth. He won’t love Wikileaks any more. 

Between the who are bought and those who are suborned, the US democracy does not have a chance unless Mueller delivers the whole truth before November or we vote out all sold-out politicians And since the crooked politicians know this, the 2018 election will be rigged again.  The Russian meddling is still going on and Trump is not even implementing the sanctions. He needs them more than he needs food. 

The Way Out Of This Mess

Trump’s projects must be stonewalled! I don’t care if Dreamers have to take a back seat for a short while. We won’t have a USA by year’s end if we don’t fix this now. So they will lose the US they love too unless we take decided action now.

#1 We don’t vote on a thing until the Russian sanctions are implemented.

#2 We don’t vote on a thing until Trump puts it in writing that he will not fire Rosenstein or Mueller without just cause, said cause to be determined by a court with many justices on a bench.

#3 We don’t vote on a thing until Jared Kushner and all Trump WH staffers are vetted by a thorough process conducted by the FBI. We can leave Trump out of this because it is sort of covered in #2.

Enough for today but one more thing.

Bernie and Biden should run together as a ticket and start campaigning now. No more Dem vs. Dem. These are our best, caring, well-spoken senior warriors. No women for POTUS this 2020 cycle. No ethnics either, I am sorry. We will need to appeal to Trump’s base people to some degree for one cycle. Once we win, anything is possible. But we must win in November. We can show the forgotten people that we care. And, if we keep our word to Trump’s base people and improve their lives, they will notice and we will be showered with two generations of loyal supporters. Trump’s base people actually are loyal, perhaps to a fault. That’s how we can take this country back and set it on a righteous course again. 

And I have just got word that my commission to make 500 political buttons that say VOTE THEM OUT in solidarity for the Parkland shootings, has gone through and I will have them soon. This is ultimately the way out of our mess. We vote out all sold-out politicians.

Dem’s Blew It Again. Trump Reverses Memo Release. When Will They Get It? Trump Cheats To Win.


Written 1/21 – Updated  2/12

We had Trump cornered in shutdown and did not take advantage of that temporary power we had. Plus, we did not even have to risk looking political for asking for the shutdown because Rand Paul did it for us! How stupid or timid are we? Trump will NEVER play by the rules. He never has. 

I have said this before, and it is even more important now. SUPPORT NOTHING TRUMP WANTS – ABSOLUTELY NOTHING – EVEN IF WE LIKE IT – UNTIL HE COMES CLEAN – which means :

#1 Release Democratic memo

#2 Implement Russian sanctions

#3 Agree to testify in person with Mueller  

Anything short of that, you do NOT support anything he asks for. Watch how he can;t get out of this choke hold. I have no idea why you don’t see this. Play hardball, or prepare to lose this country to Russia.

The following is relevant for historical reasons only. The moment has passed, but its strategy remains do-able with budget voting.

The government is due to shutdown again February 8th over the spending budget. This is NOT the time to back down! Trump’s border proposals are designed to make us look weak on immigration to his 35% base. We are the 65% now! We need a meme and message that exposes Trump as the traitor he is. We must draw a hard line in the sand re: transparency. Then we can use our terms- not DACA – which will happen for Dreamers anyway- when the government re-opens on our terms – in about a week.  We will explain how easy this really is to accomplish. Basics first.

Poli-Sci 101

People wonder what is keeping Trump in power. Yes, it’s it the complicit GOP, but they are influenced by their electoral math. The 35% base support for Trump nationally, is 70% base support within the GOP.  They can’t fight that. They don’t have the guts to be real patriots. And they need their jobs I guess. So we need to get that support number down to about 50%- 55% within the GOP to end the Trump presidency. That means we need to cut into that support by about 25% more. We believe this is easier than it seems to be right now. 

Trump appeals to folks who psychologically need strong courageous leaders. Actually, this is the original reason that humans decided to have leaders  – even within our tribal communities and back into the Stone Ages. It goes back to the animal kingdom, to wolf-pack organization. We choose alpha-male leaders to protect us from enemies. – human enemies – foreign tribes. We chose the physically strongest among us. What happens when an alpha-male is exposed as being weak? In the animal kingdom, he is quickly deposed – usually killed by the next in line or a group of them. Show Trump to be weak and his own will take him out!

The Solution to our Trump Problem Starts February 8th –  Shutdown #2 Day

All we need to do is make Trump look like the weakling he is at heart, like the draft dodger he was, when the government shuts down again. So we change the conditions to re-fund the government.  We temp shift the accent from DACA and Dreamers, which we come back to after he steps down in a week anyway. We shift the onus of refunding the government to him for being willing to sell out his country to Russia – which we all know is what happened – and being willing to keep the government down to protect his fortune – which is what is happening.  

It all comes down to the words we speak – and the timely memes we put out. We place new conditions to re-fund our government. We now insist that Trump be transparent to re-fund the government. We can say we need to make sure it is OUR government we are re-funding. Many have this insidious feeling that it is not our government any longer, that our representatives have sold out to a president who has himself sold out and/or has been compromised by our natural born enemy – the autocrat Vladimir Putin and Russia. 

We ask you to call your representatives and ask them to add one to two of these demands to refund the government. Find your own words. You can also add Dreamer protections of course, but that alone has been done and failed. By adding conditions, we come off stronger and Trump is exposed for who he is. We need citizens calling in all fifty states, but especially in New York and California, as those reps have the most power. 


#1 – We won’t talk refunding until Trump formally implements the Russian sanctions bill that he signed in August. It’s just sitting there stalled.  He was supposed to address that on the Monday, the 29th of January. We say to Trump: implement the Russian Sanctions Bill before we talk with you about re-funding the government again. His base does not love Russia! We ask to keep the government down until he deals with the Russian sanctions. 

When Trump says that’s a non starter ( and Trump will ) he shows himself to be a traitor right there? We put Russia and government shutdown in the same space. We won’t lose that fight. Dreamers vs. border security, furloughs and military – we can and already have lost. This meme is a win/win.

#2. The Democratic Memo – We insist that the Democratic version of the memo be released immediately in order to re-fund our government.  We all have this sense he’s not even going to do that. He will look like he is obstructing justice to his own base if he keeps the military waiting for their checks over this.  So let’s have him on record for not wanting to do this. If he does, pass and go to the next.

#3 –  We can add that we want him to meet with Mueller ASAP and/or promise that he will not fire Rosenstein or Mueller without legal cause and a impartial vetting process for that cause. It’s better of we make two demands at least. It gives them wiggle room but also makes us look stronger. We want to appeal to the alpha-make lovers in Trump’s base. I think that is what Dem’s miss so often. We already have our minds made up. We need to change other minds, and trump will do it for us if we lay this trap.   It won’t take but a few days. His military will be missing their paychecks and they will realize he is even willing to sell them out to keep his money and secrets. Then he is really done. We bury him right there. 

#4. When he delays on Mueller, we demand his taxes be released to open the government.  We spin the whole thing as if he is a traitor, because he has been a traitor – in many ways – and still behaves like one. And his base just needs to see that. We can help them see this. Its all just words and memes. This is easy. 

And it’s all a WIN/WIN/WIN for us. We win because we finally found a way to force Trump to do the right thing, and the public will see that. So now we win for being the strong alpha-males as well. And we win even if he says no I won’t implement the Russian Sanctions to refund the government. Then he is immediately done. We win no matter what he says. This is checkmate. 

Schumer/Feinstein/Schiff: We have him now and maybe you don’t see it.  Trump will play hardball. Stay two steps ahead of him. DACA is not an issue that will win out over the military being shut down. That is a game we won’t win in the long run. But, this double down game I am proposing cannot lose. His presidency could be over in a week. The idea is to make Trump seem like he is stalling for time, because of his own neck. His own GOP will impeach him and if they won’t the Blue Wave will drown them all in November and they have no counter move once these memes are out. They can lose their base over him not being open about taxes and Russia. Even his base wants this out. No one likes or wants a president sold out to Russia! This is your leverage this time – while shut down – expose HIM to be the traitor!

This is the outlandish and bold move we are waiting for. They are trying to shut down the FBI. Get a spine! Now! Let’s make the calls – and have this reach the ears of our reps in every state. 

We are better than Trump – all of us! And we are not in the minority. 



Analyze Contact, Collusion, Conspiracy: In That Order

True, This! — Beneath the rule of men entirely great
The pen is mightier than the sword.                                                                                                            1839, Edward Bulwer-Lytton in his play: Richelieu; Or the Conspiracy

hump-t2I also believe words are more powerful than generally believed. A man’s words can outlive a man. They travel at great speed from man to man and lodge in their brains, inspiring actions. Words are contagious, like the flu. 

So let’s analyze three words we hear about Trump so that we are clear on what they mean to us: CONTACT COLLUSION CONSPIRACY

They all start with CO(N). English C-words trace their inspiration back to Stone Ages and the claw of a bird. That association was formed because bird’s make the sound CAW or COO and we were very attracted to their CLAWS which could CATCH things better than we could. Remember, we were hunters when spoken language began to take root, about 100,000 years ago.c-claw

The written C looks like a claw for that reason. English C-words are largely about anything a claw can be or do. Closure, contact, crushing ..etc. 

CONTACT ends in TACT. That has to do with touching, tactile. And that’s because when we say TUH there is a touching process in our mouths. So CONTACT means to touch together. Fair enough. 

sun-liftCOLLUSION end in LUSION. The other big word that ends in LUSION is ILLUSION. This is a classic L word. About 50% of L-words are about things that are associated with LIFTING and LIGHT, because when we say EL our tongues go up. It reminded the early talkers of the lifting of the arms we had employed to say LIGHT or LIFT before we got control of our tongues. LUSION is a for of LUX (the Latin word for light) and it has to do with LOOKING and LIGHT. COLLUSION just means “looking together”. It’s why it does not generally resound in us as a crime. It has a playful sense to it. 


CONSPIRE ends in SPIRE. In SPIRE we see SPIRIT. It means that two are spirited together.spirit But SPIRE can be broken down further. I use a sort of lowest common denominator method to get to the root of a word. PYRE is FIRE. And S often represents MOTION when it starts an English word. A SPIRIT is the FIRE what moves within us. When two conspire, there is a sense of wishing for the same things and then working to make them happen.

And that’s where Trump and his entire team – right down to the Faux News team – are all clearly guilty. Because Russia wanted Trump to win. They even celebrated his victory. They are trying to undo the Magnitsky Act and get the oil drilling ban overturned. That is conspiracy. 

And the order of business is logical as well. First, tip toe in – CONTACT! ( not a crime yet) Then explore if you see things the same way. (COLLUSION) Then, if there is accord – CONSPIRACY gets put into action. Enter Facebook, Google, fake news – and a victory that was not ethical, nor wanted by the majority nor even legitimate. 

Now, it’s time to pay the price for conspiracy with a foreign enemy to affect the US election of 2016. And that used to be called TREASON. 


Trump Has Lost the Authority To Govern. He Needs a War. We Need Him Out Fast.

written August 2017 ~ updated December 2017

It’s getting increasingly likely that Donald Trump’s campaign managers, many of his appointed representatives, and Trump himself – are going to be caught for serious crimes against the United States. Since the Manafort raid, the guilty can sense that truth will eventually come out and it won’t set them free.

approvalTrump has also lost the ability to govern or rule with moral authority.  His approval rate is about 33%. He has been caught in too many lies. His base is catching on as to who he really is.

But Trump knows of no other way of being. We now know he was simply was not qualified, intellectually or emotionally, to be a US president. He was only good enough to turn a presidential election into a mud-fight and win that fight. And his team clearly enrolled help from foreigners, which is very illegal under the Espionage Act. 

No democracy can survive if it permits foreign actors to affect its elections. Mueller is closing in on Trump, and the Trump machine is feeling the heat. Trump now believes that if he somehow could become a wartime president, he could skirt being exposed for his crimes.  He knows how silencing the press and martial law can be used to keep the public in the dark. This is why we feel down deep that we are on the brink of some sort of war.  Trump would have 10 million Koreans die to save his empire. Nuclear war? He has a jet. He does not care about people. Never has. I went to school with him – Penn. I could share some stories. 

Realistically, Trump probably did not step into politics with the premeditated intent of becoming an authoritarian fascist. But corrupt, greedy businessmen can devolve into dictators without that having been their initial goal. In the pressure cooker of crime and punishment, criminals can feel compelled to go fascist to skirt justice. That’s what happened to Bassar al-Ashad. He was a successful, wealthy businessman doctor. He needed to become a dictator to survive in Syria.  This is pretty much what’s going on with the Trumps’ right now. They need to become authoritarian to cover up their crimes.

Hear this citizens – on all sides of the political spectrum! We just can’t let that happen here in the USA, can we? This is not a banana republic. I hope we are all on the same side of that aisle. We have way too much to lose here.  I know I feel that way. Don’t you?

But fellow Americans, if we are not smart about our situation right now, and we don’t take immediate actions to reject all corrupt officials and work to install install new representatives in 2018 who are sincerely dedicated to the public good, it (fascism) can happen here in 2018. We are not immune. America is a country like all others. How do you think fascism sets into a democracy? We are potentially witnessing that descent , right now. 

 There is a way out of this mess. But we have to insist on justice being served. 

#1 Given Trump is under investigation for serious crimes, Trump cannot retain the power to pardon anyone in this criminal investigation. That is just ridiculous in this situation and someone in Congress needs to bring this up ASAP. He must surrender his right to pardon anyone connected with the Russian investigation. That’s like allowing Capone to pardon his generals. It just makes no sense and sets a ridiculous precedent. 

The election investigation must go on. We need to know the truth, even if it means we can’t punish some of the players. I have said all along, “Trump would rather step down than show his taxes”.  Maybe that’s the avenue for Mueller. Maybe that’s all anyone needs to press for and he is gone. So …

#2. Trump must show his taxes immediately as part of the Mueller investigation. The line about “under audit” is a glaring lie. And even if he were under audit, that is no reason for an honest player to conceal tax filings in the wake of the Russian meddling. Trump would be above the law if we don’t insist on that. And no one can be allowed to be above the law in the USA, or all our laws are not valid. That’s fine in Putin’s Russia, but not here. The USA is supposed to be a democracy held together by laws. 

History teaches us that criminals who rise to political power will attempt to go fascist in order to escape the crimes they have committed. It simultaneously becomes their only avenue to escape justice and the people’s largest nightmare.

incompetentI favor asking Trump to step down ASAP for incompetence … not espionage. It is easy to find a few reasons why Trump is not qualified to be a US president. Waiting for a full trial and an impeachment is just taking too long. He passed this tax thing because we did not close him down. He’s making use of the extra innings our slow justice is affording him. Trump is a big dummy, but about crime he is not dumb at all. At crime, he may be a genius. 

Current world events are such that we seriously need a president with moral authority on the world stage. He’s been given a year to learn how to behave like a president. He has not done that. Enough!

And, Trump would accept incompetence or bad health as a reason to step down rather than be indicted or face espionage charges. (He can feign illness for all I care.) 

We simply can’t have people who worked with foreign powers to sway a US election running the government. Given the chance to escape full prosecution, the guilty will step down. Trump will as well, if its laid out sweetly for him.

So why not do that? He was a draft dodger and still has that inner chicken mentality. His sons went to no wars. It’s fine for others to die to protect his Trump brand. What a sick man he is. 

 Please spread the message in this blog. 

Together, we can save our democracy.

CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE IF MUELLER IS FIRED is starting to make news. And it’s senators that are encouraging it. There are different kinds of civil disobedience. But I think the right kind for now may NOT involve taking to the streets.

This time of year, the streets are cold. Cold weather is what broke Occupy – and of course the lack of a real plan.
So look at this:

It’s a bumper sticker that I created but did not print. But its RIGHT ON point for civil disobedience. April 15 is coming. 
There is NO CLEAN WAY out for Donald Trump expect to make a deal and claim bad health. I have known that from the day he won. He is a criminal. I worked near him in AC – and he avoided tax my moling cash to Russia. It was very obvious. No way he lost that billion. He has been borrowing his own stolen money for 30 years. No way out for him except WAR or stepping down. 
I am a business man – and of course I pay taxes – and no loopholes for me. My business is online and its very middle class mom pop. I sell wigs primarity to women with health issues online. So I can’t get this ball rolling. 
But the message – I assure you – will resound in both RESISTERS and HIS BASE. 
And I think we should circulate this message. It’s this – or surrender to Russia.
I’m not saying we don’t OWE tax. We do of course.
But we should all file for extensions on April 15th. He will be forced to show his taxes that way.  And then he is done 100%. And yes, we’ll have to fight the penalties for extensions. But it’s a small price to pay for saving democracy. 

The messages in these other posts are also very important to internalize.
