This looks more like the last stage of a coup. Consolidating power in himself by stacking the courts as his puppets, discrediting belief in the truth by attacking the press as fake and rigging elections with voter suppression. Spreading propaganda and lies while facilitating Russian-aided disinformation on social media. Trying to shut down the postal service which means shutting down voting by mail. Lastly, raising a fascist, well armed militia to stand against his political enemies. The threat to our democracy couldn't be more urgent.
A totally political judiciary is the same as no judiciary at all. This is a principle goal of the mafia, to destroy the rule of law. With the United States Congress and Supreme Court having become wholly-owned subsidiaries of Trump Enterprises, that just leaves one branch, on a rotten tree.
When you will only take a vote when you are assured of the outcome you want, why bother voting? That is not democracy.
Trump has smashed through on all the established norms 44 other presidents followed. He’s told Congress, a co-equal branch, to go pound sand. With Attorney General William Barr — his Roy Cohn — whispering the sweet melody of “unitary executive” in his ears, Trump is doing his best imitation of The Hulk, as goes about smashing and shredding all things Constitutional.
Our electoral system in this country is shot full of holes. It is unstable, unreliable, and fragile. It is extremely vulnerable. It is unconstitutional because it is unfair.
Revolution isn't a war. It is an agreement. Revolution can never come from above, from "governments." War almost always does. Revolution is the only option when government fails to represent the basic morality of a majority, or consensus, of the people. When it fails to be accountable, and responsible.
Why is Bloomberg saying now that revealing his tremendously complicated taxes would reveal his, "secret sauce," the secret to how he made his fortune, when he has always said that it was an open secret?
Here we are today with only around 3% of delegates decided (yes logicians, that does mean there are 97% of delegates yet to be awarded), and the candidates that are really winning this primary are Chicken Little and The Hulk.
Many media pundits struggle with object permanence when it comes to the normal, reoccurring process of primaries. Instead of a primary having trust falls and drum circles, the candidates are now actually criticizing each other so they can convince voters why they should be the nominee instead of any of the others. So they can run against Trump. Why is it so hard for them to see that 2 comes after 1?
If, as one of the excellent jobs of writing in today's news posits, Criminal William Barr is the "hitman," then Oathbreaker John Roberts must be the "wheelman," who drove the getaway car.
