Trump terrorist

Donald Trump is a terrorist in the literal sense. When Trump tries to negotiate, he doesn’t do so like a sharp businessman, he just uses extortion like any thug or terrorist might. There is no art to the dealing Trump does, just the threat of brute force.

trump bannon

With such an unpopular and xenophobic agenda so desperately desired, might not Trump and Bannon see it to their advantage if a terrorist attack did take place and a frightened public fell in line behind whatever they wanted to do?

womens march

There were so many fantastic signs in The Women’s March made but one that seemed most inspirational and reflective of the empowerment that this movement inspires said, “Thanks President Obama, we’ve got this!”

How would Trump respond to having a growing majority of Americans oppose and disapprove of him? Would he continue ahead or look into the mirror and sneer, “You’re fired!”?

For liberals, moderates and some conservatives, the next two years are going to be difficult to stomach politically. How should we deal with this new landscape?

Running another driver into construction workers and equipment because they would have gotten in front of you was one thing but blaming someone for damage to your pickup they didn’t do, only an asshole would do that.

As the cliche goes, the definition of insanity is doing something over and over again and expecting a different result. It’s also been the practice of Democratic Party establishment, on and off for many years.

trump-neanderthal

“We am here to stay just like first Neanderthals,” grunted Trump supporter and Newanderthal, Clyde Ham, previously explaining that part of the lifestyle includes not “con-jew-gating” verbs properly because they own the banks.

It won’t just be civilians defying and challenging Trump and the GOP Congress. The LAPD has already stated that they will not cooperate with Trump’s plan to deport up to 3 million undocumented immigrants. Military leaders have vowed not to follow orders that are against the law including Trump’s wanting to bring back waterboarding and other torture. And this is just the beginning.

I spent most of yesterday trying to intellectualise the outcome, but it comes down to three things, racism, sexism and privilege.

Elizabeth Warren is everything Hillary needed to be but couldn’t be to win this election. She is authentic, inspirational, a woman of the people, sympathetic, has an enthusiastic following in the Dem base and is a powerful and energizing speaker. She is a fighter for the regular American worker who feels left behind or neglected by their government/society, the very voters Trump used to win election because they felt they had nowhere else to go.

gunshot flag

Gun violence in America is so out of control now, that homicide by firearm is an every day occurrence. It’s gotten so bad now, that the shootings where only two or three people are killed, are not even front page news on the national scale.

It seems pretty clear that many “law and order” Republicans support criminality as long as it promotes their goals, whether it’s these anti-abortion fanatics committing fraud, Kim Davis, militias seizing federal facilities, police shooting unarmed and innocent black men…and whenever a court finds the truth on the other side of them, they hate on justice.

How is it that gerrymandering is legal? It is in essence, the power to corrupt democracy. I certainly understand why many politicians would want gerrymandering to continue to be legal but neither they nor anyone else can argue why it is not anti-democratic.

police - freddie gray

Baltimore. My city. Gearing up for reaction to the first verdict in the trial of the officers involved in the death of Freddie Gray. To say things are tense here would be an understatement. No one knows how people will feel, how people will react.

If elected President, Hillary is saying that she may sign bills that harm Americans in order to prevent what she’d suggest are greater harms that could come if she didn’t do so. That’s troubling.
