The definition of “democracy” is simple or at least the intent was simple–a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system (dictionary.com).
Let me try to break this down–the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system. Supreme power means the people have the last say over what happens in our government. Of course, that ability has been hampered by the Russian attack on our electoral process with their propagation of false/misleading/disinformation to a very gullible, frustrated group of Americans. Their frustration led them to believe that a person with multiple bankruptcies and billions in outstanding debt was a good businessman. Actually, it was more about their hatred of a strong, intelligent woman that sent them over the edge and they gambled on the pathological liar who claimed he’d look after them. The only person he’s looked after is the rich and corporations who want to pollute the earth in pursuit of greed by destroying the environment with fracking and decimating the wildlife and tourism. That’s how he’s looking after folks.
But I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself. When a foreign entity attacks the electoral process in favor of the incompetent, easily manipulated pathological liar and the “freely elected” (Russian interference) person in the White House proves, he’s going to do whatever Putin says, that’s not a free election. We have discovered since the 2016 election that various means of voter suppression took place in the swing states, from broken machines to fraudulent voter purging. It would appear that in every state where the person in charge of the election board was a Republican–there was proof that the “free election” did not take place. If the people don’t have Supreme power (unhindered by interference) there can be no government by the people for the people.
In fact, since we know Traitor Don’s biggest fear is in having to admit his presidency is not legitimate, the reason the Republicans won’t rein him in is because their election is also suspect–the reason we have a majority of Republicans in both houses of Congress is due to the Russian attack on our electoral system.
Now, we know from the “Helsinki Summit” (or rather the Hell sinking summit), that Putin admitted he wanted trump to win and that he deliberately influenced the election to get the result he wanted. But in another trumpian move–the White House has “erased” from the video of the press conference the comments Putin made. I’m guessing because he thinks we’re all stupid and will forget what we heard. And to make sure there is NO transparency in the White House between trump and other foreign (dictators) leaders is because they decided not to provide the public or Congress with any read-outs of the phone calls. Does that sound like a person with nothing to hide? Of course! He has a great deal to hide and he’s so foolish that he doesn’t realize all of his moves to obfuscate the truth, just gives Mueller more ammunition to use against him.
This defies all logic and precedents set regarding not only the protection of the resident in the WH, but in offering transparency to the public that elected them.
And now, Traitor Don wants to turn over Americans to be interrogated by Vladmir Putin simply because they openly criticize him. That’s the move of a dictator–once again. He has constantly called the media, “Fake News” because they tell the truth and just yesterday, he told the audience at a VFM convention, “don’t believe what you see or read. It’s not what’s happening.” In actuality, what we see and hear from media with integrity is exactly what’s happening and some (rogues in the WH) have confirmed everything. The only media outlets not telling the truth are Fox News, Breitbart, Sinclair Broadcasting and other right-wing radio shows. We cannot overlook all the conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones and a crazy pastor, Rick Wiles who claims
coup & decapitate Trump within hours
Christian broadcaster and conspiracy theorist Rick Wiles is back with even more rightwing lunacy. This time, he’s claiming MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow, an out lesbian, will lead a coup against President Donald Trump.
Even worse, it’s in a few hours and we’re gonna have to throw together an outfit at the last minute. What’s black and goes with decapitation?
“America, you’ve been homosexualized. You’ve been Jewdy-ized. I’m just telling it how it is,” Wiles told viewers. “She was spewing out, last night, calls for revolution. She was telling the left, ‘Take a deep breath, we’re at the moment, it’s coming, we’re almost there, we’re going to remove him from the White House.’ We’re about 72 hours — possibly 72 hours — from a coup.
“Be prepared that you’re going to turn on the television and see helicopters hovering over the roof of the White House with men clad in black rappelling down ropes, entering into the White House. Be prepared for a shoot out in the White House as Secret Service agents shoot commandos coming in to arrest President Trump.”
But Wiles wasn’t finished with his hysterical anti-semitism and homophobia.
“That is how close we are to a revolution. Be prepared for a mob — a leftist mob — to tear down the gates, the fence at the White House and to go into the White House and to drag him out with his family and decapitate them on the lawn of the White House,” he said.
And of course, his gullible base believes every stupid thing the ignorant oafs say. Trying to talk to trump supporters just to get them to think for themselves is a total waste of time. They are not interested in facts or logic and only spew trump talking points like parrots.
George Orwell warned all of humanity in his book, “1984” what would happen when, “the party tells you not to believe what your eyes see or your ears hear.” We have entered into a phase of authoritarianism and trump supporters don’t seem to care. They evidently like the idea of a dictator ruling over them. Of course, he’s already doing that since he’s manipulating their ability to think and act.
But let’s not forget one important salient fact. When trump side by side to a known adversary to America, he took the side of the adversary over American Intelligence Agencies. That is treason and until the complicit GOP Congress finds their balls or develops a spine (not sure which is harder for them to do), we’re on a downward spiral in seeing the demolition of American democracy.
Now, for all of you who might disagree with me–go ahead. But look for the evidence yourself of what I’m saying. Innocent people don’t try to hide what they do. Innocent people don’t keep screaming about their innocence. Innocent people don’t blame others for their shortcomings and incompetence. Innocent people don’t try to impede an investigation against them. Only guilty people do all of this–because they have something to hide and don’t want to be publicly exposed for all their wrongdoing and that includes–this illegitimate election.
Those who refuse to think for themselves and rise up against the tyranny that faces this country are complicit in the fall of our democracy. There’s no need to complain–if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.
By the way, nothing in this blog is new–I’ve said it all before and if you don’t believe, check out some of my earlier blogs. This warning has been out there for a long time now. But all I got for my effort was admonitions from people trying to convince me I was wrong about trump. I’ve proven and time has proven, I was right. Trump is the biggest disaster to hit the American shores and he’ll destroy everything America once stood for in his effort to be something he is not.
Don’t allow the foolish to be the instruments used for the Demolition our American Democracy! Go Vote!
