I need advice, suggestions. I’ve found lots of interesting – albeit horrifying in its implications – Twitter accounts tied to Election 2016 & Brad Parscale. Many have been reactivated recently. Ever wonder why realDonaldTrump never updates his profile pic?

Senator Jeff Flake (AZ-R) pivoted history today as he eloquently & passionately reminded us of who we are  and what our Nation stands for. Flake echos what we have been discovering – that the Trump Administration presents a clear & present danger to our children, our morals, values, traditions. Our Nation. 

Millions of people around the globe are horrified that Trump and his ContCons (Contemporary Conservatives) continue to recklessly steer our ship of state into the rocks.

Another metaphor.  Germany 1937.

Please,  just listen to Senator Flake. He, Senator John McCain & Representative Bob Corker are warning us BECAUSE THEY LOVE OUR COUNTRY.  Don’t believe Breitbart News, Steve Bannon and his altRIGHT trills / trolls FOX News, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson et.al. ad nauseum.

Who would turn you against John McCain?

Silly Steve Bannon Trivia

Steve Bannon takes credit for & others attribute to him coining the term and philosophy of the altRIGHT.

Steve is responsible for Trump ‘s pet names – Crooked Hillary, Lyin’ Ted, Little Marco, Whacky Wilson, Little Rocket Man.

and now Liddle Jeff Flake. [ed: please listen to Senator Jeff Flake’s passionate speech on the Senate floor 10-24-17]

Steve HATES Mitch McConnell & believes he must be unseated in midterm Elections 2018.

Steve HATES Senator Bob Corker & states he should “immediately resign for the terrible things he said about The President.”

Steve Bannon is particularly good at identifying, targeting for wrath their “enemies”, all those against President Trump, all those responsible for their unhappiness. At the recent CA State GOP Convention, Bannon named these ENEMIES:

Silicon Valley Tech Lords
Democrats, Nancy Pelosi
Progressives, liberals, leftists
Sanctuary Cities
Global Elitists
Senator John McCain
President George W Bush
Establishment GOP
CA GOP Rep Pat Cook
UC Berkeley, leftist institutions
The Media
The Culture

Must be a record  

In a 2-hour period, Bannon was able to conjure up 12  supposed ENEMIES to BE against. To blame, point fingers at in his cultural war to deconstruct America (his terms).

STEVE’S ENDGAME IS TO KILL THE 241 YEAR OLD CONSTITUTIONAL FILIBUSTER.

Germany 1937.

Think about that please.  The future of our nation, neigh the planet, depends on it.

I mean that.

Bannon sought to reassure the embattled party activists that the GOP could take back the reins in a majority-minority state that is increasingly tacking to the left. “It looks like now, it’s impossible to do anything in California,’’ he said. “The media’s against you, the culture’s against you…[but] you have got everything you need to win...you’ve got big ideas, you have the grassroots, you’ve got muscle.” He urged conservatives to support Trump’s agenda,’’ adding “the future of this state is in your hands, I mean that.”

 

My Proud Republican Father: Channeled

“Make America great again? America has always been great.  My country has given me the greatest opportunities to learn, grow, expand, succeed. My life spanned the birth of aviation to World War II to landing a man on the moon.

“Only in America!” “Greatest nation on earth.”

My Dear Republican Family: An Open Letter

I know I’ve always been the “leftie, liberal Democrat, poly sci Berkeley grad” at our family dinner table.  [Can you imagine how boring dinnertime would have been all those years without me?] A lone dissenting voice made louder by the invigorating conversations / discussions  / arguments Dad & I enjoyed immensely. He’d go right as I went left, debating & defending the partisan issues of the day, ending up after desert agreeing to keep it for the next time.

These were the 1960’s. Vietnam War. No matter how heated the conversation / fight got it was a given that we both loved America.

Never did we disrespect or impugn the character of others. Never did we throw insults meant to confuse, malign.

Never did we debase our Constitutional discourse with fake news & conspiracy theories.

Never, in all the years of being a proud American & member of the Grand Old Party (Reagan Republican) would Dad have gone altRIGHT .

Never would he defend – in any way way, shape, form – anything Breitbart News, former Senior White House Advisor to President Trump, Steve Bannon (see below) spewed at the Orange County, California State GOP Convention October 20, 2017 where he was greeted like  a rock star 

This is our family’s HOME BASE. Not theirs. Please, their intent is to distract, deconstruct, destroy by turning the Great State of California against itself. Us against Them. Us against Whom?

I don’t quite know what my honorable, dignified father would have felt and thought if he had heard his fellow Republicans BOO Senator John McCain.

Or of Bannon’s remarks about President George W Bush, that he was a “piece of work” and an embarrassment to the party & himself? That he was the worst President in history?

But remember, this is the man who inspired his boss, President Donald Trump,  to get  thousands of Boy Scouts [Eagle Scouts, Scout leaders & parents] at their 4-year Jamboree to BOO President Obama this summer.

It is here I stop you all to, please, consider where you are going & whom you are following. This Tweet from Nov 2016 says it plainly and simply.

I pray my family heed my WARNING of the IMMINENT DANGER to OUR NATION.

Troll Hunter

America Rising BLUE Richard Painter has been a steadfast critic of the Trump presidency and he pulls no punches in this tweet about our racist president.  Fact is, he’s absolutely right.  If you’re a neo-Nazi, you get a break from the wrath of Donald Trump tweets.  If you live in Puerto Rico, you are criticized incessantly and left to perish after a horrific natural disaster. If you’re Mexican, you’re attacked. If you’re Muslim, you’re attacked. If you’re a neo-Nazi, silence.  Trump is a disgrace and stain on our nation.

Trump, Nazis & the Russians

I had the great opportunity this evening to listen to Rabbi FR who was terrorized by neos when her family moved to a western state.  Thank you Rabbi for sharing your experiences with humor, insight and gratitude for those who stand up against HATE. Any time you need me I’m here.

Never Forget. Never Again.

Please tell me I’m crazy

Got to thinking about the New York Stock Exchange #NYSE after Trump once again gleefully pointed out its consistent performance since he took office January 2017.

Record-breaking in fact. “The world has never seen such a spectacular increase in the value of the Stock Exchange. It keeps going up and up!”

Does anyone else think something about that is weird? I’m not an economist, nor an active stocks & bonds type but I had the great opportunity to learn about “playing the market” from my sister, brother & father. I know enough through observation over many years that I believe the exchange is not responding normally to conventional market & consumer confidence indicators 

Question

In the last 9 months, why have there been no significant downward adjustments? 

Why has there been a 5000 pt increase since Election 2016?

What factors account for a 25% rise in the NYSE in such a short period in the chaotic environment Trump has created?

The hurricanes and fires with its enormous cost in damages are always expected this time of year.  But we did not know Trump would blow up our national health care system two months before Christmas by signing an Executive Order summarily stopping federal “subsidy” Medicaid payments to health insurance companies.

He made it very clear “they are lining their pockets, getting rich off of taxpayers & they’re not providing GREAT HEALTH  CARE to the people of the United States.” These are the same insurance companies, however, that cover the entire population. The plans tailored for Obamacare are disappearing, certainly some health insurance companies will suffer severe losses. To recoup these losses I see premiums going up for everyone.

The health/medical industries account for 1/6th of the United States economy.  With Trump’s Executive Order, millions of Americans have been thrown into uncertainty, confusion and fear about losing their health insurance. Confidence in the future is at best cautious. The most responsible response by consumers, of course, is to tighten our belts. Instead of buying that new flat screen TV or jewelry or more toys for the kids during the Holiday Shopping Season, we should put that money away JUST IN CASE.

How is it possible this dynamic uncertainty  – across entire industries and populations, negatively impacting the future budgets of millions of American households -not be reflected in the New York Stock Exchange?

Proposed Trump TAX REFORM legislation.

The Obamacare subsidies can now be redirected into traditional tax cuts as detailed in the Trump Tax Reform legislation.  Even taking into account that the wealthy pay more taxes and, thus, it is logical they would reap larger benefits, the details of the package make it clear the top 1% will receive a disproportionate share of tax relief.  

Repeal of the Inheritance Tax (so-called death tax) was heralded by Trump as

Taking Medicaid from the needy & transferring it by trickery to the ultra-wealthy (multi-billionaires) appears to be part of their end-game.

 

 

Kid Rock Takes a Knee

We can put this #FakeNews story to bed.

#TakeAKnee is not about “disrespecting” the American flag or our military or our country as Trump claims. Black football players taking a knee during the national anthem – exercising their 1st Amendment right to peaceful protest – is NOT even close to what Trump’s buddy Kid Rock does to the American Flag during his rock concerts.

Next time anyone says Black Athletes don’t have the right to disrespect our flag show them these two photos.

Kid Rock is running for Senate even though he disrespects the American flag by tearing a hole in it & wearing it onstage during rock concert.

Kid Rock for Senator.
