At the end of my life, I have the great honor to witness an American:

Civil War
Storming of the Bastille

All in Real Time.

All in the last 10 days.

MSD Strong are kids who want to live in a world where they are not TERRIFIED of a TERRORIST ATTACK in their schools, churches, communities. They are demanding a complete change in the culture the NRA’s pro-weapons policies have created.

Question for my Republican Brother

Dear Stan – What will you do when your president forces violent domestic conflict, declares martial law, suspends the Constitution, orders the military to occupy local & state governments, seize the media and the police to start arresting Democrats and opposing citizenry – AKA The RESISTANCE – for treason and UnAmerican behavior?

Asking for a friend.

Time to take your stand

We are that point in history when we each must decide who we are and what we value as Americans.

Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) on Senate Floor Tuesday, February 6, 2018 responding to President Trump calling “Democrats Un-American and treasonous” at a speech at an Ohio factory February 5, 2018 for not applauding him during his first State of the Union Address January 29, 2018.

Despite what Trump Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says, Americans are listening to Senator Flake.  The world listened today when Trump said, “We need a good government shutdown.” Our military heard General Kelly’s racist remarks amid orders to prepare a Grand Military Parade down Pennsylvania Avenue like North Korea, Russia to “show” how powerful we are. He envisions His Greatest Show On Earth.

Gee, where have we heard that before?

Constitutional crisis, martial law, civil war?

Open letter to my older brother:

Dear Stan – since we haven’t spoken since the 2016 election, it was interesting talking with you last night.  Our conversation was awkward & stilted after you praised President Trump & lambasted the Democrats in the same sentence. You know darn well I’m the only Democrat in the family so I’m not sure what you were seeking to accomplish by demonizing “people like me”.

To be honest, I was shocked you were spewing FOX News, Breitbart, Russian talking points. “Trump, GOP good. Obama, Hillary, DNC evil.” Did you notice this was the first time in my life I didn’t rise to the bait? I literally changed the subject to the weather, the grandkids, chatty news.  And I kept it short & sweet so that neither of us could say something that would permanently separate us.

Let me use these metaphors:

1850’s – I just learned my brother is an enthusiastic slave owner.

1930″s – my brother voted for, endorses, condones, approves, admires Hitler’s government.

I’m not being hyperbolic or dramatic. The Trump regime did conspire with Putin during the elections. Russia is still influencing our politics, spreading dezinformatsiya “disinformation” in order to destabilize our democracy with the active aid & assistance of the President of the United States.

Nunes Memo is a dud

Source: Politico.com

“It’s been a rough week for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, the California Republican at the center of a Washington firestorm after crafting a memo alleging bias and misconduct at the FBI and Department of Justice.

But for Andrew Janz, the congressman’s Democratic opponent, things have never been better.

Janz, a previously little-known Fresno prosecutor, reports he’s been deluged by donations and media attention. Last week, the congressman’s hometown paper, the Fresno Bee, headlined a scathing editorial under the headline, “Rep. Devin Nunes, Trump’s stooge, attacks FBI.” Even late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel piled on this week, sniping that “to call Devin Nunes Donald Trump’s lapdog would be an insult to dogs. And to laps.”

In recent days, Twitter has been abuzz with calls from Democrats across the nation to donate to Janz’s campaign.

“We’re looking really good, thanks to him,’’ Janz told POLITICO, just hours after the memo’s Friday release. “I think we took in $100,000 between today and yesterday.”

The Useful Idiocy of Donald Trump

“His bizarre antics are typical KGB dezinformatsiya tactics to divert our attention to the real danger – the destruction  of our democratic institutions.”

By Chris Hedges / Truthdig

“The problem with Donald Trump is not that he is imbecilic and inept—it is that he has surrendered total power to the oligarchic and military elites. They get what they want. They do what they want. Although the president is a one-man wrecking crew aimed at democratic norms and institutions, although he has turned the United States into a laughingstock around the globe, our national crisis is embodied not in Trump but the corporate state’s now unfettered pillage.

Trump, who has no inclination or ability to govern, has handed the machinery of government over to the bankers, corporate executives, right-wing think tanks, intelligence chiefs and generals. They are eradicating the few regulations and laws that inhibited a naked kleptocracy. They are dynamiting the institutions, including the State Department, that served interests other than corporate profit and are stacking the courts with right-wing, corporate-controlled ideologues.

Trump provides the daily entertainment; the elites handle the business of looting, exploiting and destroying.”
