antifa Rising / Big Beautiful Tax Cuts 

The GOP rolled out Trump’s “2018 Middle Class Tax Reform” package this week but their  definition of “reform” is not in keeping with the real meaning of the word.

REFORM – to make changes in something, typically a social, political, or economic institution or practice in order to improve it.

Analyses by the left, right & down the middle have all arrived at the same conclusion. This historic, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to change the entire United States Tax Code is not for the better. Helping working families & small businesses, the bedrock of our nation, has never been the goal. Just like their efforts to repeal & replace Obamacare was never about our national health care.

Fortunately for us, the details of the proposed legislation are such obvious attempts to loot our national treasure we are not confused.

If a savings of $1082 is correct, it translates to $20.80 a week for a “family of four” which is only $5.20 per person.

renovate our kitchen
take the family on vacay
save it for college tuition

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 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.

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.

 

 

Fake Nazi News

Letter to the Editor, Spokesman Review

David Wordinger’s letter “Evenhanded condemnation” recites the alternative facts about the Charlottesville Rally provided on Breitbart.com and altRIGHT social media.

altFACTS are the bedrock of “Fake News”. Whenever they are encountered, we must refute them in detail and in print so that history can be written accurately and truthfully.

Permit to rally – Unite the Right did not have a permit for their Torchlight March the night before.  People who witnessed it use words like horrified, terrorized, terrified, humiliated, devastated to describe their emotions watching the hundreds of self-avowed nazis, Ku Klux Klan members, and numerous other white supremacist groups from around the nation parade through their streets.

Chanting “Jews will not replace us” and “Blood and Soil” they trooped past a small synagogue, spitting, jeering , imitating cutting someones’s throat.

The 1st Amendment does not protect speech that calls for the violent removal and/or elimination of Jews, Blacks,  Latinos, Gays, Trans, Muslims, Mentally Ill, Disabled, Gypsies, Political Opponents, and of course Dreamers.

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

On Saturday when they did have a permit to rally they came armed to the teeth. Charlottesville  police say they were outgunned by the extremely well-organized right wing militias who took full advantage of Virginia’s Open Carry law. (see photos)

On the other side were the so-called counter protesters which (according to Wordinger) included

..”antifa, Black Lives Matter, Redneck Revolt (?) and other agitators who have stifled speech and disrupted Trump rallies, college presentations and other peaceful events.”

This sentence can be found almost word-for-word on Breitbart.com & Alex Jones ‘InfoWars’ TV show it’s loaded with altFACTS.

I’ll break it down.

antifa – antifascists written in lower case because they do not organize. They are not a gang or association or club or playgroup.  American antifa from different from European antifa. (my blog post about antifa protesters at G20 Summit  to come)

Black Lives Matter – grassroot organizations formed by political and community activists, and students, churches, schools in response to a spate of high-profile police shootings. In Ferguson, MO, protests against police sparked a rolling riot

STOP: Trump Rally Phoenix 8-22-17

STOP the PHOENIX #TRUMPTRAIN

#potus45 determined to bring his anger against Senator John McCain & Rep Jeff Flake by holding campaign-style pep rally in Phoenix Arizona Convention Center Tuesday Aug 22, 2017. Wed Aug 16, 2017

Mayor of Phoenix issued statement expressing disappointment Trump is attempting to further inflame emotions & tensions.

Trump Train Campaign Rally Phoenix AZ CANCELLED - Trump not wanted.
Trump Train Campaign Rally Phoenix AZ CANCELLED – Trump not wanted.

This is truly sick.

potus45 is going to Phoenix to hold a campaign-style BASE LOVE FEST like the olden days. He relishes the adulation.  Amidst the frenzy he imagines himself giving a speech greater than the Gettysburg Address.

He chose Phoenix because it’s home to Rep Jeff Flake & Sen John McCain, both Republicans Trump believes have betrayed him. Rep Flake wrote an explosive book that cast Trump in unflattering light.  Sen McCain famously thumbed-down the infamous TrumpCare bill that would have repealed ObamaCare & replaced it (as they have long promised) with a BILL SO BAD they PROMISED IT WOULD NEVER GO INTO LAW.

Trump bitterly excoriated Sen McCain, Naval Hero, POW during VietNam War as a traitor to the Party and to him personally.

Trump is going to Phoenix to bask in the glory of his adoring fans IN FRONT OF McCain & Flake – just to let them know he can come onto their home territory & have his way. Destroy Flake by endorsing, supporting, campaigning for his opponent. (aside: how strange in politics when the Rep president campaigns against a Rep Congressman).

12:38 PST two days after NeoNazi Terrorism in #Charlottesville.

@potus address to Nation: #Trump opening statement “Our economy is FABULOUS” then (teleprompted) denounces, condemmns NeoNazis, White Power & racism.

He finally uttered the name of Heather Heyer who was murdered by a Domestic Terrorist attack not a simple “car attack”.  Look carefully at photo below. NeoNazi in #TorchLight parade march on the University of Virginia campus WEARING Trump KKK Uniform.

Neonazis march on University of Virginia #Charlottesvile Aug 11, 2017. Note the Trump KKK Uniform.

This is not a coincidence. Fortunately, the law, Civil Rights, our Constitution. the Federal Justice Department, our legal system over-rides any affection and assistance the #trump might offer to his BASE.

Hey David Duke, Neonazis what do you think now?

End the Denial About Trump
E.J. Dionne Jr., The Washington Post
Dionne Jr. writes: “It should not have taken the death and injury of innocents to move our nation toward moral clarity. It should not have taken President Trump’s disgraceful refusal to condemn white supremacy, bigotry and Nazism to make clear to all who he is and which dark impulses he is willing to exploit to maintain his hold on power.”
