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.

A Short Delay on the Impeachment Vote in the House would have been ideal

As of today, it will be too late to delay the House vote on impeachment, but that only makes the other parts of this strategy more urgent. What I had hoped was that we could have cited that the GOP said they want more evidence of a crime. We could have agreed to use the next six weeks to push for what they asked for – more evidence. We could have used that time to form and broadcast Team America and start campaigning in a new way. And not so much to our side. Team America will have the left if it’s put together right. Team America campaigns 50% to red state citizens.

So now we have to start right away. I mean this week if possible. The Senate will be on speed dial to acquittal – and on 1/23/20 – they are already.

TEAMWORK

The remaining viable candidates can meet in a room after the next debate and 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. 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.

Then our Team America pools resources and donations, which focuses our war chess, and gets to work – mainly to show the American people what they can do for the citizens of the USA. This surprise tactic of running for president with a VP and cabinet in place will work. It makes a spirited WW2 statement from day one. How can it not work?

The optics are spectacular. Instead of 20 candidates telling undecided American voters why they are best for the top job – we present one well-prepared team, ready on day-one to get long overdue jobs done for all Americans.

Even MAGA people will go for that. They know they are being lied to. They just don’t know who will be there for them on our side because right now – we don’t even know. They will remain tuned out to our overtures until we decide who we are. Next July? It may be too late by then.

And here is a truly fresh idea. I don’t play horses, but I know there is something called a double-entry ticket. You bet on two horses and if either wins you win. Two is an even number so if there were two presidents there could be stalemates for the commander-in-chief. But not if there were three! Imagine three presidents. If there is a decision that needs a split-second reply – it’s two out of three. No problem really.

And maybe we will need three presidents working to undo all the damage Trump has done do our standing in the world – and to America as well – with his climate denial. Maybe the job of president in this new cyber world has gotten too big for one man. I can’t think of one president since FDR who really did such a great job for the country – while unifying the country. Can you?

If i had to choose three – it would be easy really. It’s Biden for the left, Bernie on the right, and … Bloomberg in the middle. The three B’s! The fight would be over – and so would Trump-ism. And MAGA folk WILL vote for this! They will love the three presidents idea. They chose Trump because they wanted to shake up the system. They got that. But Trump is shaking up the system to benefit the wealthy and mainly himself. That’s not what MAGA folk wanted. This presents a way of shaking up the system. And I guess there is still a VP and a chain of command. If this happened, I don’t think we would ever return to one president again. No one man could defeat a team of three. It’s really clever.

And each president sort of has his specialty within this concept: Bloomberg – raw organization skills. No one better on the planet for that. Biden – his unifying style, but also for his experience in “being there”. And Bernie – his progressive ideas on healthcare and for the left side of our party and grassroots appeal. If Warren were not so close to Bernie, I would place her there too. Maybe she is VP.

A singular president of the USA – in this complicated world we are in today – perhaps it’s time has passed. When jobs are tough, we employ teams of lawyers and teams of doctors too. Maybe we can have a three person presidential team. Would you pull the lever for this team?

And yes, they still need to choose a VP because if something happens to one of them there always has to be an odd number of presidents. Any way to get to teamwork and fast – is fine with me. Why? We are at war with Russia and their Trojan Horse installation in our government. We are at war with ourselves at the same time. The prognosis is not good. What we are doing is not working. Waiting for the rigged 2020 election is not going to work. And this unites the party and the country. So why not just do it?

The way we campaign for president during a time of war should be different than it is in normal times.  What we can expect on our current path is more of the same old: -debates – after-which we learn little new – nor convert any voters to our common causes. More circular firing squads. And all the while, the Trump team which clearly extends back to Russia, speaks in unison. We are strategically handicapped because we play by rules, conventions and traditions while the Trump Team does not. If we had fought WW2 this way, we’d all be speaking German here today.

There’s no room for it’s all about me now. And there are other ways to get to teamwork. The traditional one POTUS way can still work, but we need to choose quickly and wisely. And that won’t happen if they run against each other for six more months. “Teamwork Now” is about unifying our side so Trump supporters can see we mean business, and choose now to leave the party that really is abandoning them. And they know that. They just don’t see a life raft to jump over to, because we won’t have that life raft ready until July. Is that smart?

Finally, this is for Nancy and Adam. If the GOP will not allow witnesses then on the day you know that, subpoena Bolton to testify in the House. And if they vote to acquit, then on that same day announce you will add a third article of impeachment and this time call witnesses in the House and force the courts to expedite testimony in the interest of national security. Do not allow Trump to campaign as an acquitted president. He is going to arrest dissenters for presidential harassment. These impeachment discussions should be happening two weeks before the election anyway – the way Comey announced vs. HRC at the last moment. That worked did it not? Just think about what will work. Love like a Democrat. Fight like a Republican. It’s a metaphor.

I see we have finally got around to saying Trump cheats to win. I wrote about Trump’s cheating almost three years ago – having witnesses his cheating in 1967 at Penn and in AC in the 80’s. I am glad that ripple finally found its way into the mainstream of political thought.

Here is a link to that post on cheating.

Trump’s Main Problem: Cheating To Win posted August 2017.

englishcode.wordpress.com/2017/08/24/trump-cheats/

Also for Nancy. I wonder if you got Trump in a SCIF and offered him real immunity from STATE prosecution if he would step down. I wonder if you could offer John Bolton a job in the democratic side if he would switch? It’s not as if any one person can take us to war. I don’t think Bolton’s heart is on the wrong side. I would not mind him on a team on our side. Those were two probably crazy or illegal ideas. But I just want you to think the way Trump the criminal thinks. He might go for a deal to not run again. He knows what he has to lose.

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.

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

America Won WW2 Because We Worked Together as a Team

We Need WW2 Teamwork Again Now

Let’s show the American people we can unite our party. Both sides will respect that. After all, if we cant unite the “left” how can we unite the country?

May 2019

We are at war in the USA. We are at war with foreign enemies that want to exploit our riches. We are at war with Trump’s GOP party that sells our rights and assets to the highest bidders. And at the same time, we are at war with each other – which will make it very difficult for any side to prevail in any effort.

I am old enough to remember first-hand the spirit of the WW2 generation. They were not the greed is good generation nor the it’s all about me generation. The greatest generation citizens resigned to do their parts to defeat German Nationalism with a spirit of teamwork and without ego. Now we have a combination of corporatism and American Nationalism to defeat.

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

I still see a way to get the current GOP Senate to vote to impeach Trump, but only after the Dems change the way they are running their campaigns . Some GOP senators are now whispering privately they want to abandon Trump. Let’s show those same GOP senators if they keep Trump as their figurehead they’ll have no shot in 2020. That’s the big idea here.

Teamwork

The viable candidates and those who really want to work to save this country should meet in a room and settle on who will be the Democratic candidates for president, vice president, chief of staff and district attorney. Then our Team America pools resources and gets to work – not only to beat Trump – but to show the American people what they can do for the citizens of the USA.

Will this surprise tactic of running for president with a VP and cabinet in place – work? How can it not work?

The optics are spectacular. Instead of 20 candidates telling undecided American voters why they are best for the top job – we present one well-prepared team, ready on day one to get the actual jobs done for all Americans.

Even MAGA people will go for that. They know they are being lied to. They just don’t know who will be there for them on our side because right now we don’t even know. They will remain tuned out to our overtures until we decide. Till next July? Really? It will be too late by then.

The big idea is to not preach to the choir and get GOP constituents in red states liking what they are seeing and hearing. Imagine a team energetic candidates all campaigning simultaneously for the ideas we need to transform this country. That's never been seen here before. It's like Trump that way - powerful out-of-the-box strategy. (You got to give him that.)

Now imagine the same-old, same-old – what we have now. More debates after-which we neither learn much nor convert voters to our common causes. More circular firing squads. And all the while, Trump team – from Kelly Anne to Bill Barr – speaks in unison. We are strategically handicapped because we play by rules, conventions and traditions while Trump does not. If we had fought WW2 this way, we’d all be speaking German here today.

I realize not every candidate will want to leave their current position to work in the 2021 cabinet that leads America into a modern future. But they can be offered posts. I sense a job for Michele Obama in Team America too.

There’s no room for it’s all about me now.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE STRATEGY

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Notice: For Ilhan Omar and All Politicians

Dear Ilhan: I see how people who know you love you. Welcome home. I don’t want what I am about to say to be taken the wrong way, but I do wish you would allow yourself to be seen without your native hijab at least once on public television.

Why do I advise this strategy? You have become Trump’s 2020 Hillary – his scapegoat. And with one speech, you have a chance to shut Trump’s hate campaign down! I know it sounds crazy, but please follow along. You got close with your message on Thursday. 

Seasoned politicians know they must always consider how they are seen by others. They seek to create policies that support the majority of Americans because they know they are in the business of caring for Americans. Those who know and support you are more than okay with your head dress. But you must know there are some that are actually afraid of that hijab look. It’s sad, stupid, unfair, unfounded and mostly cowardly. But it’s also a reality in today’s polarized environment. Trump is using your hat, not you, as a visual to paint you as “the other”. For his uneducated supporters, it’s going to work!

100-squad-hijabBecause you are never seen without the hijab, people figure you are orthodox and  upholding this old school Islamic tradition. It feels like what the Amish do. They police modesty with traditional clothing. However, it’s also clear the hijab was created to stifle some part of a woman’s freedom, eve if only to dictate modesty to them.  So even people who support your right to dress anyway you want, as I do – may view your hijab as a weak spot – a loyalty to something few Americans can identify with.  

The more important thing to realize is that the hijab actually scares some reasonable percentage of Americans. These might view the hijab the way you might view a swastika.

And that’s why smart politicians learn to blend in. Why would they want to scare any people? And now I am going to show you how to use people’s irrational fear of your hijab to dismantle the Trump hate campaign in one press conference. But let me go on a minute more here about how you are seen by some people that are not Muslim.

People who are not orthodox, religious and atheists ( that sums to a huge percentage of all Americans these days ) are often the most tolerant, but they all have made the choice to not believe too strongly in deities.  – So it’s clear you believe in something that they don’t believe in. It’s okay with them, but all people are more easily persuaded by those that they feel they know fully and trust. That’s why advertisers choose people who look like their audience to deliver messages. It’s common sense.

So if you are never seen without a hijab – regardless of your reasons –  it feels like some part of you is stuck in a tradition that clearly was not born here. It’s the hijab – not you – not your darker skin tone – that Trump is attacking. And his base is sucking it up. 

I also don’t think politicians should wear one’s religion on one’s sleeve, because we have a clear division of religion and government here – unlike in the Middle East. Our politicians mostly all have religions they belong to.  But you can’t tell what religion they align with by the way they dress. They don’t flaunt their religions. And that is just smart. 

Further, religious people first subjugate themselves to rules of men and gods created long ago by people who could not possibly know our modern world. (That’s the born-again humanist in me coming out. Please tolerate that opinion. It’s not easy for a free thinker like me to say this.)  I know all American people have a right to worship a god and take part in traditions. But politicians have a primary loyalty to the people they serve and they have to be smart about things that everyday people don’t have to reckon with. 

aside – about me – Though I was born Jewish, my adult-self evolved. I became a humanist. I believe in the sovereignty and goodness of well-intended thinking humans. I see these different deities primarily serve to divide us.  There has never been scientific proof of one god’s existence. And we certainly need to get back to science to see the planet any more. Free thinkers believe our own eye’s and minds and can work to make the world a better place for all humans. 

Look at Israel and the Middle East. How is religion in government helping that situation out? It’s not! It’s causing the tensions. If you can’t empathize with those Americans who might see you as a foreigner whose ultimate loyalty is to a god – which by definition is not the American people, how can you expect them to empathize with or for you? 

What would be the cost for a temporary olive branch sent to those who see you as a foreigner? Some pride. Some principle. But nothing beyond your personal ego really. The world is bigger than any of our egos. 

We now all know you are the squad member that inspired Trump to call you all foreigners. And it’s because of the hijab. You have to know that. That’s what sets you apart from the others – and all other Congresspeople. 

And we can’t be about ego now. Think WW2 gen. No egos. You are in public service now and we have a crisis. That means you should be doing your best to reach all Americans – even those who are overly reactive to or afraid of foreign appearances. And Ilhan, we have them here in the USA. Further, fear of the other is a human ( and animal ) instinct. It’s a survival instinct. It’s not going away. Time to be smart. 

And yes, I am sure you have got threats from that hating bunch. You should always think John Lennon or Abe Lincoln. The hate is out there. You can’t make it go away overnight. – And people of that ilk will need to learn to like you who if you are to reach them with your ideas. That can happen over time or even overnight.  But sometimes you have to be the bigger person so to speak.

Trump knows that hijab is your weak spot. Certainly not your pretty face and spirit. Take the target down at least a few days. Do something they won’t expect! So important right now while the camera is on you. 

So this is the strategy.

#1. ANNOUNCE A PRESS CONFERENCE – Everyone will be there. Fox too.

#2. SHOCK THE WORLD AND DO THIS SANS HIJAB. But the hijab should be there on the podium! 

#3. Find your own way to say this.

I have called this press conference because I am appalled at the way Donald Trump is creating and pumping out messages of hate about duly elected, hard-working, female Congresspeople. All Americans should be appalled by his hateful words.

You see me here today for the first time without wearing my traditional hijab. i am not doing this for my supporters and constituents. They are okay with me for who I am.

I have taken the hijab off today for the people who are receptive to Trump’s messages of hate. I want you to see that I am just like any other American woman – or American black woman. In fact, I believe that we are all the same – regardless of race religion or age. We all want the same things. We all want a productive life filled with love, family friends and accomplishments. We want to stay in good health for as long as we can – and when we are not well – we want good care. We want access to good education. We want to enjoy healthy clean water and food.

I take this hijab off today because I sincerely believe some Trump supporters are literally afraid of this hat. Well here it is. The hijab is just a tradition to remind women that modesty is a proper way of being. That is something Donald Trump never learned growing up as a privileged spoiled child in the Bronx. Trump embodies the opposite of modesty. The Amish people also have such a tradition and dress “plain” for that reason. Are you afraid of Amish people?

Then go on to round out your statement. The idea is to call Trump and his followers cowards – without using that word. So it’s more of a “what are you afraid of” statement you want to make. State your weight if need be. You are not anything to be afraid of. Make them love you for that moment.

After this you can go back to hijab – but this press conference will embarrass Trump supporters so deeply you may reach them. You want them to see you and say to themselves – why is Trump making us hate this woman who has so much good inside her?

When you get that message across – without a hijab – they will hear  you – and it will penetrate. Then Trump won’t be able to SELL HIS SUPPORTERS on MESSAGES OF HATE again. You will have shut it all down. It’s a King’s New Clothes moment. You will have exposed his tactic.  And even MAGA people won’t like looking like they are afraid of a young woman with a soft voice and non-threatening appearance.

You alone can do this now! But before Mueller speaks. Then the news cycle changes.

I am Jewish. The women sometimes wear wigs for the same reason. These cover-up traditions were likely created by men who want to control their women. Telling a woman what to wear – is by its nature not progressive right there. It’s darn close to telling a women she can’t have an abortion too. It’s reminiscent of Sharia law as well. It’s not helping your ability to be an effective public service.

Well, you are bigger than that now if you want to be. Tell me how you feel about this. joe@wigsalon.com – email me. Or text 818 423 1533. 

I am 71 now. Seen a lot. Learned a lot. Even went to school with Trump ( Penn ) who paid for his homework BTW. Read some of my posts here. https://englishcode.wordpress.com/

I am on the side of this democracy. i write about it. I write songs about it too. Listen a bit -links at the top.  I’m a bit Messianic. It’s why I am reaching out to you. 

We need all of you Ilhan. Your hijab is the source of Trump’s you hate America meme and the send them back meme. You need to realize that and then decide to do something about it. 

Think of you not wearing a hijab for 10 minutes as a man putting on a tie occasionally to fit in. Look on TV. Every news caster, every politician – is a bit in costume. You stick out. You want to stick your for your voice – not your foreign looks. The other SQUAD members are POC but look like Americans. 

Your name – OMAR – means “word” in Hebrew. I imagine it means word in Somali too. I wrote a book on etymology – Deciphering the English Code.  I see how all languages connect to a more basic physical language that we used before we learned to speak about 100,000 years ago – in Africa! Yes, English began in Africa – but the English quashed that knowledge 1000 years ago in the Crusades – a “religious” war. I see how we are all the same. Religions that separate us really bug me because we have to get past this to survive as a species. 

OMAR. Break it apart to O + MAR. The MAR is the same as in MAR-A-LAGO and MARINE. At first it appears to be about water. But think also MIRAGE, MIRROR and ADMIRE. The MR sound is linked to WATER and VISION. Now look at this. SEA and SEE. ( water and vision ) OCEAN and OCULAR. ( water and vision ) WATCH and WATER. DRAW and DRINK.

How are water and vision connected? Well before MIRRORS we had to look in water to see our own faces. Imagine that! It has been the reality of mankind for 100,000 years.
The O in OMAR represents just what it does in your mouth – roundness – fullness. Words were thought as as fuller vision. And they are. 

There is also a connection between words and light. That’s why it’s LI-brary and LITE-rature. It’s why ORAL sounds like AURA. I really like my book. I’d like to send you one upon request.

So OMAR, we need to hear your words coming form your mind – and not distracted by the appearance of traditional religious thinking. You are young still. You may evolve yourself in time to become a humanist. But right now, letting go of that crutch ( as I see it ) or your religious freedom ( as you see it ) – for 10 minutes – just so people can see you are capable doing this for the good of the country – would help the cause of the SQUAD and the American people you serve – quite a bit.

You are becoming the thing the haters will vote against. You are becoming Trump’s 2020 Hillary. We don’t need that. I hope you see that. And that is endangering our democracy and the planet.

Sent with love.
