Donald Trump’s Devil’s Deal

“The Art of the Deal” negotiated from hell!

When will “real Americans” stand up—sans political party affiliation—and do what’s right for America?

From the beginning—in 2015—most of us knew that a racist, pathological lying narcissist was running for the highest of the land. And most of us knew—he would make a mockery of it and he has.

From making “Faustian” deals with the White Evangelicals to the brain-numbed Republicans, a deal was made with devil. The “Art of the Deal” was to negotiate giving him cover for whatever he wanted to do, and they did, including allowing Putin’s influence to reign in the White House.

He told the churches, he’d get them whatever they wanted as long as they provided him with superficial “religious” cover—just enough to fool the gullible—and they did, according to Reverend Ron Schenck in a CNN interview. I’m sure, if Republicans were truly to be trusted and showed any integrity at all, they would probably say the same thing and even if we don’t know for sure what was said to them in 2016, we see the results: tax cuts for the rich, nothing for the poor; Betsy Devos serving as the Secretary of Education when she knows nothing about public education and therefore, all American students suffer for the payment she made to Donald Trump to destroy public education. Immigrants lost—they are no longer wanted in the United States—a bigoted stain of ugliness we may never be able to shed.

“What do you have to lose?” he asked of black voters. Well, we have lost so many lives that I do not dare attempt to name them or this essay will be far longer than I originally anticipated. With all of the brutality shown by some police officers against black people—more than ever, we have to vote for people who see us as people and will do the right thing, no matter what the political party affiliation is—Black Lives Matter—whether they’re Democrat or Republican and no one should be allowed to get away with snuffing out their lives simply because of hate. Now, this doesn’t mean that everyone else’s life doesn’t matter, but specifically it means that we all recognize that all life is important, but when it comes to Black Lives, it would appear that officers in certain police departments are members of the KKK or some other White Nationalist group and they demonstrate their loyalty by killing us and laughing about our cries that, “I can’t breathe.” We are not people to them. We do not matter to them. Donald Trump gave white officers the green light to take our lives—without fear of consequences.

He duped the LGBTQ community by ignoring the needs of the trans members and denying their right to serve in the military or receive medical care for their transition. Religious fodder that made the Evangelical community grunt with satisfaction and greedily beg for more—disdain and disregard of our fellow human beings.

The Hispanic community fare no better than any other group of non-white Americans and many of them still support this inept bungling menace. He turned his back on Puerto Rico during one of the worst times of their lives and thought tossing paper towels at them like they were some sort of game show contestants.

To say that Donald Trump is an ignorant son of a gun (my mother raised me right) would be an understatement. He has proven time and time again just how ignorant he really is—from not knowing historical facts almost every fifth grader knows to deliberately and calculatingly turning back consumer protections—designed to keep us safe. As a result, when the Coronavirus Crisis hit the shores of America, we were woefully unprepared because the “stable genius” ignored the warnings from the WHO and China. His ego would allow him to admit he didn’t have a clue and when the experts repeatedly made it clear he knew nothing, he stopped heeding their advice and as a result, as of this writing, America has lost over 134K people to this virus. Had he one ounce of dignity, integrity, or empathy, many of those lives could have been saved, but no—his ego and his desire to be re-elected is far more important than human lives.

There is some hope on the horizon, and it does not come from the federal government or anyone in the White House. The beacon of hope America has lies in the intelligence and willingness of its governors to do what is right for their constituents. Leading the way, Governor Cuomo, and Governor Gretchen Whitmer—Michigan’s own, “That Woman.” There are others, but these two refused to give into the egotist’s noise and did everything they could to save lives which included, total lockdowns (except for essential workers) and daily briefings as they disseminated the data for all to hear and understand. Yes, the economy took a hit (but Wall Street rallied), but the loss of lives could have been worse had it not been for the stance taken by the governors who refused to cave to the bullying from the White House or other Republicans. Our heroes—and they deserve to be called heroes—are the governors who put people before profits and dared to mandate protocols to keep everyone safe—wearing a mask, social distancing, and making sure hands were clean. Its commonsense approach is still shunned by the idiots, but some of those idiots—learned too late, that wearing a mask, saves a life. Some of those who raised the loudest ruckus, are no longer counted among the living.

I’m sure I haven’t said anything that most attentive people don’t already know, but I felt  the need to reiterate some of the travesties we’ve endured because some people—just didn’t understand—elections have consequences and we are all suffering from those consequences. We have another presidential election on the horizon. I hope the gullible have learned their lessons and will vote for the people who care about them more than money, who care about children more than money, who care about our military more than Putin. It is not about party affiliation—it is about voting for the people who understand the Constitution, will keep their oaths of office, and stand up for all Americans—just doing what’s right, rather than what is political.

If we want this Devil’s Deal to end—everyone eligible to vote—must vote Blue for every Democrat on ballots across the nation so we can move forward and clean up the mess and the stench left in the White House. We can do this. I know we can. I am going to do everything I can to remind people, daily, until November 3, 2020—our voice and vote matter and if we look to a future that includes us all—we will vote Blue.

Come on Michigan Women of Valor! Come on American Governors! Come on American Voters — let’s end this deal with the devil!

 

Accountability For All!

Accountability For All!

Dear trump supporters:

I’ve had a lot to say for the past two years, but this is my first letter directed at you. And yes, I know I didn’t capitalize his name, I seldom do. I have no respect for him and I won’t pretend that I do. What amazes me is that anyone could have any respect for him, but apparently, some do.

Let me begin with those who voted for him–shortsightedness, frustration, anger, apathy or just plain stupidity guided this shipwreck of a decision and here we are. I really don’t care about those who claim to be pro-life when in actuality, they are pro-fetus, not the life of those outside the womb. The proof–the mindless moron just condoned the killing of an American journalist because he can’t stand the thought of losing any business (his personal business–it’s not about America First) from the Saudis. This is what gets me–he lies and lies, deflects and denies and that same segment of people, keep making excuses for him and justifying his behavior. And for those hoping a Republican court system will prevail against abortions–think again. It won’t. If you don’t want to have an abortion, don’t have one. If you don’t want to be married to a person who is the same sex as you are, don’t marry them. And before you get your underwear in a bunch, I’m more Christian than any of the dolts who voted for this moron, and I know the most important commandment we have from Jesus is to love–unconditionally, so keep your religious, Phariseetical comments to yourself.

He does not care about America–if he did, the deficit would be decreasing and not increasing. He does not care about our military–if he did the 5800 troops at the border would be home with their families, he would have gone to combat zones before now to visit our troops, and he hasn’t done a thing to support our veterans. Anyone with even partial vision and hearing knows by now, he disrespected veterans by not going to the Arlington Cemetery on Veterans Day or the cemetery in France. He met with Putin and was so glad to see him that everyone remarked at the pure joy that showed in his face. Most of the veterans I know and have an affiliation with–are totally po’d with him. They have not been paid benefits for some time now and it’s going to cause problems for many. But does he care–not one whit. He disparaged Admiral McRaven–claiming Bin Laden should have taken out sooner than he was. But now, please remember–trump avoided the draft with phony deferments five times to avoid Viet Nam and now, he claims he doesn’t want to visit the troops for fear someone will kill him. Amazing how that fear never stopped other presidents from visiting troops in combat zones and yet–he claimed he’d run into a building with an active shooter in a school. More lies. He’s afraid of the rain because he can’t manage an umbrella.

And then there was the tax cut scam that many are going to soon regret when they realize, they did not gain anything because all the exemptions and deductions will no longer exist when they file their taxes. So some thought getting a few extra dollars in a paycheck was going to make a difference–short term and temporary. The corporations who got all the real breaks, bought back their own stocks, laid off workers and many closed doors, leaving the workers–behind the eight-ball. Right now, GM is cutting their work force by 18K. What are these folks supposed to do? Join the rolls of the unemployed and watch that percentage rise from 3.9% back to 5.1% nationally. It’s coming–this is what always happens when Republicans control government–they enrich themselves, cut spending for the poor and then we see a recession. Democrats are the ones always left to clean up the messes and reduce the deficit–by raising taxes–because cutting them led to the increased deficit to start with and the working class, did not benefit the same way the rich did.

He’s abused and misused the office of the presidency to the point where America is the laughingstock of the world. We have more lawsuits pending in court than ever before (and we’re only 2 years into this fiasco) and now–journalists have been put in danger all over the world with his stupid, mindless, reckless, rhetoric–calling the media the enemy of the people.  The true enemy of the people–is trump–the wanna-be dictator who wanted to prosecute and jail anyone who criticized him and primarily to impede the investigation into the Russian involvement in the 2016 election. I know some will never believe it, but it’s true, and not believing–won’t change the truth. You know–the way some people say they don’t believe in God–they don’t have to believe Him–and it doesn’t change the truth of who He is.

Further evidence that trump doesn’t care about Americans or America is found in the roll-back of all the “consumer protections” that were established to protect us from corporate greed and disregard. Now, corporations can poison the water, the soil and pollute the air. We’ll end up with all sorts of diseases from the protections being rolled back and then we’ll just die because he doesn’t want to provide healthcare for all. I’m guessing how we bury our dead is not a concern to him.

If I tried to relate all the stupid he’s done in just two years, this would be a very long letter. So, let me get to the point of this. There needs to be accountability for every person in an elected office and since there’s no one in this administration that has shown any capability of being an adult, the culpability for the stupid falls on the shoulders of every person who voted for the menace in the White House. I didn’t vote for him because I knew from listening to him during the campaign that would be the biggest mistake I could ever make. There were at least 65 million of us who saw through all his blather and lies. Strangely, most of that 65 million don’t claim to be Christians and I would have thought, that Christians–who are like me–who can hear Holy Spirit when He speaks–would have known better. I guess that’s the difference between being religious and being in relationship with Christ. I heard Him speak to my heart and did everything I could to warn people, but the religious folks didn’t care. They even lied and said God chose trump to be in the White House. The God of Heaven that I serve is far too wise to have chosen a person who is the antithesis of who He is. If people truly know God–they’d know this. They would also know that according to the bible, if we warn people of impending danger and they ignore us–their blood is on their hands. If they heed the warning, they are safe. But if we don’t warn people when we see impending danger and people are harmed, then their blood is on our hands. I didn’t and don’t want anyone’s blood on my hands, so I warned and I am continuing to warn about the menace in the White House. What you do about it, is on you. Not me.

So, whatever happens from this menace being in the White House, if you voted for trump, you’re responsible. The lack of assistance and support for those in Puerto Rico, the delay in FEMA action from natural disasters, the death of the journalist (complicity), the veterans, the poor, the educational system, the deaths of millions who will succumb to illness because of the heartless, mindless moron you installed in the White House. This disastrous situation is all on you.

We can only hope–that a Democratic House will finally put a check on the menace and maybe, because of their example, the GOP in the Senate will wake up from the drug induced stupor (probably due to Russian connections and bribery) and uphold their oaths of office–which they haven’t done so far.

So knowing all that has transpired in the White House since January 20, 2017, can you look into a mirror and not cringe when you think about how lives have been affected, adversely since his inauguration? If you can look at yourself in the mirror and think he’s doing good things for America, then you are just as heartless and mindless as he is and the world would be better off without you. And when you die–I pray you suffer the same indignities that caged children have suffered and every person who has lost a loved one in a mass shooting or died because of a lack of access to healthcare. That’s all on you and I won’t let you forget it. Count on it.

THERE ARE NO ADULTS IN THE WHITE HOUSE AND NONE IN THE GOP SENATE. WHERE ARE THE ADULTS IN THIS SITUATION THAT CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE DIRECTION OUR GREAT NATION IS TAKING?

They’re on their way and some have already begun the process to make sure trump is exposed for all the evil he’s done and when those in Congress find their spines, they’ll do what they need to do. At any rate, 2020 is looking better and better for me (or someone like me) to win the presidential election and start cleaning up the mess made by trump on the national and international levels.

Let’s face it–you really blew it this time and almost cost the country its democracy. Happy now?

Sincerely,

Mary Hall-Rayford

 

 

Demolition of American Democracy!

Demolition of American Democracy!

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

Rick Wiles LGBTQ Nation

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.

Attention voters

Don’t allow the foolish to be the instruments used for the Demolition our American Democracy! Go Vote!

Which Way Do We Go?

Which Way Do We Go?

There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.“I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him. Luke 12:2-5 NIV

A lot has been going on in our society lately, especially in the political arena and in DC. With all of the uproar and rumors, eventually the truth will be known, about everything, not just one thing, about one person–but about everything and everyone involved in deceiving America. The cover is about to be pulled off the hidden stuff and there will be much grinding of teeth and angst. We already see it–fear–has caused total incoherence in the White House, but they’ll never admit it.

How do I know? I pay attention–to what is said, by whom it’s said and watching the conduct of all those who claim–they’re innocent.

Innocent people are not afraid of investigations–they welcome them–especially when the truth will set them free from any doubt of wrong doing.

Innocent people don’t threaten other people with illegal detainment and arrest and prosecution.

Innocent people have no problem answering questions from whoever wants to ask.

Innocent people welcome the opportunity for total transparency so they can move on with their lives without concern about being “exposed.”

Guilty people–on the other hand–are always decrying victimization by others and it’s always someone else’s fault.

Guilty people are read by their body language which indicates–something hidden and fear rises to the service making them stammer and stutter.

Guilty people don’t know when to shut up–always have to accuse others of what they’re guilty of doing.

We’ve heard a lot from a number of people this week–too much for me to try to regale in this blog post so I’ll just try to hit the highlights.

As if we didn’t already know–Donald J. Trump is the biggest liar on the planet and those who speak on his behalf–like Jim Jordan are liars after the heart of their master. How do we know–Stormy moved across the television screens of many; Comey stood up the bully and spoke his truth about all that occurred in the first five months in the WH as it pertained to him; Michael Cohen was exposed for being an attorney with a limited clientele that included the megaphone from Fox News–Sean Hannity–who attempted to further conflate the exposure by lying–claiming he had never hired or paid Cohen, but thought he had attorney/client privilege. It’s either one or the other, not both. And then–to top it all off (and the week is not even over), Trump tweeted that Comey lied about why he was fired, when it was trump himself who told Lester Holt on national television that he fired Comey because of the Russia investigation. If that wasn’t juicy enough–we learn that trump called another attorney, Jay Goldberg who told him if Cohen was faced with a rigid federal sentence, he would probably flip. Now, that call was made last week, which explains the myriad tweet rants this week.

Some days, I just have to cut off the news to maintain my sanity because every day, there’s more lying and complicity and now–most have of us have determined that there is evidence out there that proves beyond a shadow of doubt that trump is a treasonous traitor.

But there are other traitors in Washington–those who have been partakers in the RussianRubeJob–taking money from Russian oligarchs thinking they’ll never be found out. I guess that’s why 43 republicans, including Paul Ryan are resigning and that number may continue to rise as truth is revealed. Some have already left–like Jason Chaffetz in hopes of warding off being exposed, but Justice–though blind will find and make known the truth.

Proof enough that we need new leadership and direction in Washington–people with morals, values and integrity and a will to serve the people? I think so and am more determined than ever to be ready in 2020 to serve Everyday Americans because–we deserve better and we must go with truth!

No Collusion?

No Collusion?

The Republicans on the House Intelligence (oxymoron) Committee has determined there is no evidence of collusion on the part of anyone in the trump campaign–a conclusion they announced with the termination of their investigation.

I’m not an attorney, but I’ve worked with a number of them and it seems to me that this conclusion is premature at best–complicit at worse:

When there is an investigation of anyone to determine any wrong doing, all stones should be looked under to see what may be there. Since there were a number of “witnesses” who refused to answer questions–claiming “attorney-client privilege” when none existed and since the chairman of the Intel committee refused to subpoena them, they did not conduct a thorough investigation. Of course, Devin Nunes has his own reasons for terminating the investigation. The truth was about to reveal his part in the complicity of the Russian meddling.

Here’s the thing, no matter what happens from this point forward–Republicans are not to be trusted in any public office and no one who is sane should ever consider voting for them again.

There has never been as much turmoil and stupidity running rampant in the White House, spilling over to Capitol Hill as there has been since January 21, 2017. Putin’s influence and sway (whatever it is) over trump is costing this country dearly and at this point–no other country or world leader should trust us since we have proven, we can’t be trusted to handle our own domestic affairs.

But we can earn the trust back with upcoming elections. We must elect responsible adults to be in public offices and right now that means–we elect Democrats–who care about all people. We must vote blue in special elections, the midterms in every state and again in 2020–to elect a president who thinks with their brains, not their guts.

Of course, the final verdict about “conspiring against America” has yet to be made and even when Mueller makes it–we cannot count on the Republican-led Congress to do its job and divest themselves of any so-called loyalty to trump. But a flipped House and Senate–Democrats leading–will put America back on track and we will see beneficial change for all.

Who am I that any should believe me? Take a little time and do some research and discover–who I am and where I stand. I am an American with heart, compassion, and a desire to address every need of other Everyday Americans. Right now, I am a LittleKnownEducator, but give me a few months and all of that will change.

My name (remember it well) is Mary M. Hall-Rayford and I approve this message!

Have We Seen Enough?

Have We Seen Enough?

I know I can’t speak for anyone other than me, but I’m curious. Have we seen enough from the White House Administration to know that it is not functioning in the capacity in which most presidencies should?

With all of the allegations that have been lodged against–just about everyone there, we finally get “confirmation” via Sarah Sanders who either accidentally revealed the truth about “David Dennison” or deliberately revealed it. Arbitration won without any involvement? Not hardly.

But then we have all the other stuff–the stupid stuff–people working in sensitive venues who can’t get top security clearance; KellyAnne Conway violating the Hatch Act; all of the pathological liars set in place to lie to cover lies.

And I’m waiting to see–who has not been involved with Russia since it’s been revealed just about everyone in the White House has had some connections with Russia at one time or another. It’s just insane and what makes it worse–is all those #DavidDennison supporters who refuse to acknowledge they helped to elect a total buffoon and traitor to the country–especially the Evangelicals and the hypocritical Christians who are simply–label-wearing Christians who just want to control and judge others and allow kids to kill people.

Have you seen enough?

I have, but as bad as it looks–there’s more to come and I’ll be ready for it since I refuse to have the wind knocked out of my sails because idiots are running the country.

I won’t stop talking about the foolishness or the fact that there is a way out of the madness in the midterm elections. Are we ready? I am!

How Blue Will Win The Day!

How Blue Will Win The Day!

For the like-minded Christian Democrats, Independents, and Regretful Republicans who want to see “real change” in Congress and lawmakers who work for the benefit of all Americans:

Greetings all! Just a word of caution for 2018. In discussing elections, please be mindful that “trashing trump” won’t get us a win. We must be “inclusive” and discuss how the election of Democrats will be better for the country because Democrats care about all Americans. If we don’t pound that message–we’ll have to deal with Republicans for quite a while.

My focus will be on educating voters–getting them to understand the difference between false propaganda and real information. Then, encouraging them to get out and vote, no matter how difficult the republicans try to make it for them. People are angry, but the anger must be tempered with good information and a reason to vote blue. Let’s give it to them w/o mentioning #Dooflebutt who I pray won’t be with us much longer, but enjoying the comforts of a jail cell. For those who might take issue with this statement, I suggest you research true new sources and stop wasting your time with an entertainment network who has no clue as to what journalistic integrity is or how to report fair and balanced news–since they are not a licensed news network. Treason–on the part of many in GOP leadership, the White House staff and cabinet and the Oval Office will be revealed soon. They know it which is why some are not planning to run for re-election. Watch for it!

Since this is an election year, GOP will be focused on getting back in office, not in completing much of an agenda after March. So, we’ll make the necessary phone calls, write the needed emails, but more importantly, it’s about getting to the voters and making sure they understand how important this election will be for them and the future of their families. We can’t afford to lose this election cycle since it will establish the framework for 2020. Are you ready? Let’s do this!

I’m ready for change and will work to help all the candidates who are truly concerned about the welfare of all, the status of the United States on the global stage, and the diversity Congress reflects–representative of all Americans, not just some.

What Did We Have To Lose?

“What the hell do you have to lose?” Donald Trump asked of an all white audience in Ohio and Michigan in reference to Black Americans. Not once, did he ask the question in front of a predominantly Black audience and I’m sure the reason he didn’t, he knew he’d get an answer he wouldn’t like. So, this was his campaign question and it was re-asserted with a meeting of Black lawmakers in Washington with the Congressional Black Caucus. Now, 11 months into his installed position at the White House, not only can he not answer the question, he’s demonstrated he doesn’t care what the answer is or might have been.

Not only have Black Americans not gained anything from his being elected through the rigged, Russian interference, all Americans have lost — all those who are not rich and not old white men.

The Traitor has demonstrated his loathing of women, people of color and those who are financially strapped through no fault of their own, other than the circumstances of their birth. He accused over 16 women of lying when they lay accusations of sexual misconduct at his feet — disdaining them as if they were a pieces of garbage and only chose women to serve in his cabinet who are for the most part — pretty subservient. Although he had at least one strong defender in the White House — Omarosa — she has since been booted out and that only leaves — Ben Carson — the total belly-waxer who grovels every time Traitor Don looks his way.

But it’s not just the women and the Black folks who have lost. When we look at everything he’s done so far and God help us if the Republican-led Congress won’t wake up and smell the stench — we see one thing pretty clearly — Donald Trump only cares about Donald Trump and what he wants and to hell with anyone else and the Constitution.

Through the storms and the rain from Harvey and Maria and the fires in California, we discover that addressing catastrophic situations are not his strong suit. In fact, from his delayed responses, it would appear that he had to be reminded that these events were occurring. The same is true of Heather Heyer’s murder, the massacre in Las Vegas, and in the small town in Sutherland Springs, Texas — his remarks were perfunctory, not comforting as if he hated the interruption of his daily tweet rants and golf games. He was rude to a Gold-Star widow, Myeisha Johnson, on the phone (at least that was her perception) and then he attempted to belittle Congresswoman Fredericka Wilson who was with Myeisha when she got the phone call from Trump.

Leaders from the Historical Black Colleges were invited to the Oval Office for for a photo op and after making empty promises, they were no longer needed and nothing he said to them has been fulfilled. They lost needed funding to continue their mission to provide quality educational opportunities for a predominantly Black student body.

He’s rolled back consumer protection regulations that now allow coal mines to poison streams and other water systems; manufacturers are free to pollute the air and manufacture pesticides that cause brain damage and create toxic soil in food production.

He’s pulled out of the Paris Accord agreement regarding global warming because his limited ability and understanding of science has convinced him, the United States doesn’t need to participate.

He’s insulted world leaders and attempted to bully them into doing what he wanted with an assist from Nikki Haley, who apparently has joined the cult of stupidity.

His tax cut scam— benefits only the very wealthy and corporations — those earning less than $100K a year will have to suffer the consequences of not making more money and in paying increased taxes — on a graduated time scale. And it looks like — if Paul Ryan has his way — those of us who are older, Senior Citizens will lost Social Security benefits and Medicare benefits. A whole of lot losing going on from this corrupt administration and Congress.

Over 9 million children have lost access to medical care and another 13 million will suffer from the loss of healthcare insurance with the removal of the “ACA mandate.”

Native Inhabitants are losing protected lands (national monument regions being shrunk it size) because of the greed of the wealthy donors so they can “drill for oil” and uranium.

Alaskans are losing precious wildlife area — again for greed — focusing on the rich, not the land.

Puerto Ricans have lost much — access to electrical power, needed medicine and food supplies because of Maria and the Traitor in the Oval Office doesn’t seem to concerned about them.

America has lost her standing on the global stage because of his ineptness and incompetence and if he has his way, many parents will lose their children in a war that does not have to be, but will because the Traitor is a bully and has no common sense or decency.

Many families will lose their homes due to the inflation that is bound to occur with the lopsided tax code passed by greedy Republicans who care more about money than their constituents.

Access to a quality education is lost because of his lack of education (how he obtained a degree is a mystery, but most of us have concluded — daddy paid for it). Betsy DeVos is the worst person in the world to head the Department of Education because she knows nothing about public education and could care less.

Traitor Don admits all his cabinet members are his billionaire buddies (or least those who contributed millions to his campaign) because he “couldn’t have a poor person in a cabinet position.” Many of us could argue that point effectively, but it would be a waste of breath and time.

Some people have lost sleep since November 8, 2018 and a desire to live — anticipating the worse — every morning they wake.

So, what did we have to lose? It appears quite a bit — a sense of security and stability — since none exists in the White House. Hatred and bigotry abound because it spills over from the White House, unfettered, unfiltered as anyone who dares to disagree with him, is belittled or undermined.

No peace, no compassion, no empathy, no real leadership — that’s what we lost when Russian interference and foolish people decided to elect a reality TV has-been rather than a competent woman — simply because she was a woman and her last name was Clinton.

Though we have lost — some of what we had and some of what will never be — we don’t have to lose more. We can take it all back — by voting for Everyone who runs as a Democrat in 2018 and 2020 — The Blue Vote — will at least give us back a sense of security and our rightful place on the global stage — without influence from Russia or greedy Republicans.

We can stop the madness — from the impotent Republican majority and the traitor in the White House, but we have to take off the blinders that hinder the truth of the matter and put our feelings aside for the good of America — all of us, not just some of us.

As I Watch…

As I Watch…

As I watch what is happening in this country, I am consistently amazed at how easy it is to dupe, non-thinking, bigoted people.

The gullible, and some who have to have superior intellect, believed the lies of the most odious person on the planet in America.

They believed he cared about people (specifically to working class)–he does–those who are “uneducated” and believe his lies. Those who are just as bigoted as he is and those who hate President Obama simply because of his skin color. Yeah, he cares about all those people–the 33% forgetting about the rest. The tax bill that he is so anxious to sign, does not benefit the middle-class as touted, but the rich–especially the rich donors who want to see a return on their investment by electing a traitor.

I’m watching Christianity spiral into the dung heap of pagan religions because of the “religious-right” who have no relationship with Christ and are disgusting those who do as well as those who don’t believe. They would rather vilify those who disagree with them, rather than come to a place of understanding by talking and listening to one another. They tout they are “pro-life” when in actuality, they are simply “fetus lovers” since they do not respect or care for life outside the womb. We know this is true based upon the policies they support that take from the poor to give to the rich. They claim to be Christians–wearing the label only–but never doing the work. They quote scripture on social media outlets–proclaiming their love of God when they have forgotten that it is difficult to see how anyone could love someone they cannot see when they don’t love those they see (1 John 4:20). They have also forgotten that the Word says, “to whom much is given, much is required.”

But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. Luke 12:48 NIV

As I watch–complicit Republicans plot to fire Robert Mueller, creating “facts” without evidence and igniting anarchy against the FBI, I’m appalled that in a country founded upon the principle that everyone is entitled to freedom of speech and opinion. And just because FBI agents shared opinions with others–does not make them unable to do their jobs. I’m flabbergasted at how elected officials are such whiners simply because people don’t agree with TraitorDon. I mean really–using who contributed to whom as a basis to determine culpability or inability to do one’s job! Only a desperate person would even attempt to rationalize that strategy. In particular, I’ve referring to Jim Jordan–Ohio Republican and Matt Gaetz–Florida Republican–the noise makers who talk so fast, they trip over their words and most psychologists would recognize the desperation in their frenetic discourse. They’re afraid. Truth will prevail–no matter how much they whine and to suggest–appointing a second special counsel to investigate the first special counsel is not only ludicrous, but negligent because of the cost involved.

As I watch unfolding events on a daily basis, I am not deterred at the foolish and the mockery of Patriotism; I’m empowered–more determined that ever to get into position to make a real change in America where all Americans are valued and respected–where we put Patriotism over tribalism and all benefit from the process.

As I watch interactions on social media, I’m counting on all those who post their disdain of the current political climate to act and support all (not just me) who want to make things better for all.

As I watch the situation, God is also watching. He knows who really belongs to Him and it’s not just those who “quote His Word” but cannot live the life of a True Believer.

Though I am not perfect, I serve a perfect God who will guide me into all truth and pour wisdom into my heart that I may know how to serve all by serving Him.

On The Road To Vindication!

On The Road To Vindication!

Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:16-21 NIV

For all who lied said God chose trump to lead this nation, the time of reckoning is upon us and God will show up and show out–exposing all those who lied to the nation. We don’t have to concern ourselves with how God will avenge us–that is His decision, but many won’t like what happens and they’ll hang their head in shame.

Don’t think for a moment that I’m just looking at the election results from yesterday, but I’m also reflecting upon the election results from 2016 that was rigged with Russian assistance and coordinated by members of the trump campaign. The evil that brought us into the election cycle with a liar, a thief and a traitor will turn upon itself and God will expose the liars, grifters, and evil they sought to do by immersing America into Russian authoritarianism. I’m also looking forward to see the results of 2020–in which all known players in the 2016 election rigging will be known and peace can once again reside in the hearts of every Everyday American. Love always triumphs over hate–though it may seem slow, in God’s timing we will see the vindication of The Lord and how He avenges His name.

I look forward to running a presidential campaign that invites all to join and leaves none pushed aside. I also look forward to winning and establishing an administration that looks like America where everyone is represented with equal opportunity to determine the direction in which our country continues. I look forward to seeking those who have Talents, Integrity, Enthusiasm and Strategies to win and serve the people of this great country. And know this–I am not proclaiming I am God’s choice, but that I am willing to be used by God to serve this nation in a way that will glorify Him and not me, promoting love and not hate, peace and not war, cooperation and not stagnation or obstruction to make sure ideas that benefit the masses are implemented!

The journey will not be an easy one, but I look forward with personal satisfaction in knowing that I was right all along and the insight given to me by God will be proven accurate. Whether those who mocked me or told me I was wrong is not an issue. They will have to live with their own consciences, not me.

When we live according to The Word, not people–justice–though delayed–will reign and God’s vindication will be known throughout the world. I thank God that He has filled me to overflowing with love and gratitude because of His love for me. With His love overflowing from my heart–there is no room for hatred and bigotry and no decision I make will be driven by hate, but desire to serve the needs of the people who make this nation great.

We are on the road to vindication as a nation–those of us who know truth will live truth and exercise truth in all we do and be victorious as a Blue Tsunami floods the country in 2018 and in 2020. Our trials in dealing with a treasonous administration will end with triumph over the evil plotted against Americans in 2016. God will repay!
