The White House Transformed

We are reaching a point where the divide in this country is becoming so great that we are going to experience an irreconcilable situation that will climax in the most tragic of results. It is largely due to one undeniable fact. The chief executive of this country, the person who has unfettered access to the bully pulpit, the most influential person on the American scene, the one individual who has the ability to set the tone for the entire nation, is doing exactly that. He is preying on the fears, frustrations, insecurities and darkest angles within this Nation. He is using lies, bully tactics, threats, and any other scare tactic available to set his agenda; and it is tearing the country apart. Witness every day the increase in hate speech, as well as attacks towards non-whites, non-Christians and immigrants.
But, the saddest, and scariest part of all of this is that he is enjoying it. That’s right, he and his inner circle, siting in the one place where history has been made time and again in the pursuit of freedom, justice, and peace; the White House, is being transformed into a war room. It is there, where they are unleashing their own “weapons of mass destruction.” Its is all being done by individuals who relish in the idea of being in control to advance their own sick plans to turn the United States into a reactionary, oppressive, Anglo dominated state.
Recognize the signs:
a) Attempting to influence a federal investigation by speaking directly to the FBI. b) The continued pressure to sway members of Congress to ignore irregularities
within the Administration.
c) Criticizing everyday citizens when they confront their Congressional
representatives with real concerns about the real issues they care about with
accusations of being paid professionals.
d) The blatant lies coming out of the White House from the President down to the
communications director, demonizing any criticism while pre selecting which
organizations to engage with.
e) The growing hostility toward our most trusted and long established allies
f) The continued criticism and false claims to cast doubt on the nation’s judicial
system. (the one federal branch designed to be above politics)
g) Perhaps, the most dangerous action of all; accusing the press of being “fake
news” at every story critical of the administration. The press, media, “fourth
estate,” whatever you choose to call it, a universal organization that’s
evolved historically to be the one independent source for truth, is now being
relentlessly demonized by this president in order to create a separate reality.
Now, we understand there are new Gestapo type procedures underway within those hallowed halls by way of curtailing the dialogue of the administration’s own staff. Can free speech, our Constitutional right, be endangered as well?
It is up to all of us to make sure that does not happen. Wake up, stand up, be strong, be resolved, and remain free.

Enemy of the People

This new president is living in a reality created by his fanatical inner circle and his own warped and dangerous view of the world. His inflammatory, made up stories(now Sweden) are making us not just an international laughing stock, it is more importantly, putting us all at risk, He is playing on the fears of the misinformed, as well as other fanatics while creating an extremely volatile situation. Congress needs to wake up, stop being concerned about their personal survival, and become concerned about America’s survival. The great enemy of America is not the media, but the person that occupies the Oval Office. Congress, drink some courage, “do your job” and stand up to this nut before we find ourselves living a nightmare we will never be able to escape.

2/17/17 Trump on Stage

Trump on stage, let the “fake” news’s media bring the curtain down on this “really” fake president

Since the Trump campaign began, his obsession with being at the center of everything was only a reflection of his whole unsavory and repulsive career. He has used the stage to not only to lie, but to show his utter disrespect for anyone and anything that was contrary to his agenda and way of thinking. We have all seen it and many, many have been repulsed by it. But he needs that stage. He feeds off of it. It is where he gains his strength and momentum. The more he has it, the more lying and disrespectful he becomes. On the other hand, the press could never get enough of him and they kept feeding him what he needed; the attention. Now it is time to stop. Now the danger is very real. Nationally as well as around the globe, his made-up “facts” and disregard for established practices and relationships has made us less safe. The press needs to turn their back on this con man just as he is about to turn his back on the American people.

Wouldn’t it be a sight to see how he reacts to an empty press room, save for the butt kissers, and the wing nuts. What a great day it would be without the country being subjected to his fabrications, self-promotion, and out and out rude, boorish, and quite frankly disgusting behavior. The unfettered press needs to just stand up and tell this megalomaniac get stuffed. The time has come for his comeuppance.

Divide and Conquer

Divide and Conquer
So the Trump Press Nazis turn away half of the established, credible media and the remaining outlets go running ahead like sheep to listen to more guff coming from the administration. I have already spoken out on how the media needs to turn their backs on this President and now it has come down to this; he is playing one group against the other. The press; print, electronic, and otherwise needs to put this abuser in his place. I recognize its news but it will be more news when America sees his reaction. Take a bold step. Be a “free” free press. Focus on the truth and leave the greatest perpetrator of lies in modern American history to the lap dogs.

Shawn Spicer, you are a crumb, nothing more and perhaps much less. You stand there in front of the Press and the American people and deliver the Republican Party & Trump-o-mania crap that the displeasure voiced at these town hall meetings are “organized, astroturf staged events.” Everyone knows that ACA is far from perfect but you are way out line. Look at and listen to these people. They are concerned about their future health and that of their families. To dismiss them as not genuine is irresponsible and a reflection of the total insensitivity of this president and the Republicans who have always believed that health care was a privilege and not a right. Get a job as a carnival barker. Your getting good training in your current post.

You Are What You Do, Say and Feel

How does a person born of privilege feel the hunger of the poor?
How does a person within the white majority feel the exclusion of racism?
How does a male feel the humiliation of sexism towards women? And how does he understand the fear, anguish, and complications of her unintended pregnancy?
How does the Christian understand the hatred and torment felt by those of other faiths?
How does a straight person know the heart of someone within the LGBT community?
Well, maybe you might not find the answers here, but for sure it is not by criticizing, demonizing, ridiculing and ostracizing.
Perhaps the best way to know and understand those who are different, is to feel those who are different.
Walk in their shoes, listen to what they have to say. Travel along with them on their journey.
With knowledge comes understanding, and with understanding comes appreciation and acceptance.
Even the canine and feline can live together after they get to know one another. Aren’t we above the animal kingdom?
Where are we headed in the great country of ours?
The recent election has given us a chief executive who has never felt the pain and fear of those who are outside his sphere, and he chooses not to. More unsettling is his developing policies which reflect his attitudes of bad behavior towards his fellow man, while attempting to question if not stifle our rights to choose, participate, and most important of all; to speak freely without fear of retaliation. We must stand up for who we are and where we are going.

Speaking the Truth?

The recent massacres in San-Bernardino and Orlando are a reminder to all of us of just how tragic and life-changing these events are for all of us. Making up stories that refer to an event such as this, that never happened, for the sake of political gain is outrageous. Those individuals who continually lie to the public in order to achieve an agenda need to get off the stage.
