This is an open letter to all politicians who label themselves Democrats: you must lead, follow, or get out of the way because America is coming through!
Donald Trump is a menace to the world. He is an illegitimate President who is in the White House because hate, cowardice, theft, and lies put him there. He must be removed without delay and all his fellow spies, henchmen, and crooks with him. All of them must go!
There are Democrats who get this. Representative Lewis does, for example, but Representative Maxine Waters said it best:
- “No, I don’t trust him. I don’t believe him. I have no intentions of sitting down with him. I’m going to fight him every inch of the way.”
The Republican Party has died. It has been replaced by the American Fascist Party in all but name. Walls, registries, lists, killing millions by taking away their insurance, Medicare, Medicaid.
And not a single Republican has stood up to Trump. Not one single one. They equivocate, they stammer, they excuse, and worst yet, they applaud! They line up to follow this would-be dictator.
But America is mighty, strong, intelligent, savvy, and unafraid. America is going to clean out the White House, the House, and the Senate.
So, politicians who call themselves Democrats and politicians who call themselves Republicans who are not Fascists, write the words of Representative Maxine on your heart and gird for battle.
We call upon you to stand up to hate and stand up for America! You can do this by shutting down Washington:
- Not one piece of legislation gets passed if it does not relate to finding out the details of what Trump the traitor is plotting with Putin.
- Not one bill is to be considered which does not have to do with removing Trump and his henchmen and band of spies.
- Not one more Cabinet hearing until he is gone!
- Not one nod in the hallway! Who nods politely to Fascists?!
- No appeasement.
- No giving in. No rolling over.
This may seem like scorched earth policy to you and it is! Defend your country and go on the offensive. And Attack! Your country is worth fighting for.
As for the rest of us Americans, we are going to watch what you do and do not do very closely. Every day. Every hour. If you do not step up, if you do not defend and attack, we will know.
Do not think you are safe until the next election! You are not! If you do not immediately call for Trump’s expulsion, we will be relentless in our efforts to remove you from office.
We will, peacefully, do everything we can to make you do your patriotic duty. We will occupy your offices, we will call you, we will publicize your cowardice in every way possible through newspapers, television, and the Web. We will call upon you to resign. We will look for, find, and seek to cut off your secret funding and your corporate contributions.
So, again, here is your mantra: “No, I don’t trust him. I don’t believe him. I have no intentions of sitting down with him. I’m going to fight him every inch of the way.”
Remember, America is coming through. If you are afraid to lead, afraid to stand up for what is right, afraid to put Country before Party, then get out of the way!
The Republican Party’s senior leadership (RPSL) in Washington has made it crystal clear they want to destroy the Affordable Care Act (ACA), an insurance program put into place under President Obama’s administration. Currently the plan covers more than 20 million Americans, many of whom could not get insurance in other ways or who would otherwise be forced to pay horrendously high monthly premiums to get insurance coverage. Repealing the ACA would strip away their health insurance completely. As a result, millions of Americas would die because they cannot obtain the healthcare they need.
The rank-and-file Republicans do not have anything to do with this effort. In fact, many of them have insurance through the ACA. Most are unaware they will lose their health insurance if the ACA is repealed. Not only will many be surprised if the RPSL kills the ACA, some of them be dead shortly thereafter for lack of access to basic healthcare.
Why, you may ask, would the RPSL want to kill millions of Americans, including some of the party’s own rank-and-file supporters?
Answer: because the RPSL wants to score one, single, solitary political point against President Barack Obama. Yep, the RPSL is playing a game of political football, and millions of Americans will die if they succeed in killing the ACA.
The RPSL took the first step in its kill campaign yesterday. But, they have to do a lot more conniving and manipulation to kill the robust program.
You, as an every day American, can help the protectors of the ACA stop the RPSL from killing millions of Americans.
HealthInsurance.org has published a detailed post about how you can do this. To read the independent organization’s post, which is full of helpful hints and useful links, please click this link: https://www.healthinsurance.org/repeal-and-replace/6-ways-you-can-resist-insta-repeal-of-obamacare/
Here, though, are the six simple and easy ways every day Americans can stop the RPSL from killing millions of Americans:
- Call your Senators and Congressional Representatives.
- Write a letter or send an e-mail to your Senators and Congressional Representatives
- Share your healthcare story, especially if the ACA is helping you or your family and friends stay alive.
- Ask friends and family to reach out to Republican Senators on your behalf.
- Attend a local rally or town hall, even if you don’t stand up and speak, you can hold a sign to make your opinion clear. January 15, 2017 was a key day for this kind of peaceful public protest, and more opportunities will be coming up soon.
- Use all of the social media channels you use to make your opinion known. Be persistent, be bold, but be polite. Do not engage with trolls you encounter online. Remember many are paid propaganda trolls paid by Russian money to harass innocent Americans online. Do not let them waste your time. Block them, and keep going.
Thank you for your time, your consideration, your humanity, and your actions.
Recently on Twitter we received a query from a lovely woman in Canada, let’s call her Betsy to help protect her identity. She asked, understandably, “How in the world did a Russian Spy (Donald Trump) get elected President of the United States?”
I promised Betsy an answer and here it is:
- Donald Trump was aided and abetted by senior people in the Republican party. These people pushed legitimate, non-Spy candidates out of the way during the Republican primary in order to push Donald Trump forward. In other words, they colluded with a Russian spy against their own party: self before party.
- Donald Trump was aided and abetted by other traitors who hold United States passports and who have served, or are currently serving, in senior government positions on the federal and state level: greed before loyalty.
- Donald Trump was aided and abetted by Putin and his henchmen in Russia. They gave him information and money for his campaign. Plus, Russia has been involved in cyber-warfare against every day Americans, including trolling them through social media through the use of paid propaganda trolls.
All of this has been substantiated by press reports and government intelligence.
Plus, it is clear as a bell. Anyone with common sense could understand what happened and is happening. Just look at Donald Trump tweets where he idolizes Putin and demonizes anyone he thinks is against him.
Plus, since that must not have seemed enough to the Trump Cabal to defeat Hillary Clinton, they also figured out a way to hijack the vote tallies in a few big states so as to win the Electoral College vote. The Intelligence Community is still gathering facts and sorting out what happened, so stay tuned for more details. We will report on this again as more information becomes available.
So, Betsy, there you have it. Donald Trump is a traitor, and so are the United States citizens who have worked so hard to put a Russian Spy in the White House.
Putin is just doing what Putin does. He is trying to do it in other countries, including Canada. He is particularly interested in installing other puppet despots (Trump being one) at the head of European countries in an attempt to weaken NATO. He wants to weaken NATO so he can push ahead with military plans to invade European countries.
Although today it seems like it happened a million years ago, it was only a few days ago when some very brave American Congressmen and Congresswomen stood up for America. On Friday, January 6, 2017, the following Patriots stood up for America to protest Electoral College votes:
- Congressman James McGovern,
- Congressman Jamie Raskin,
- Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal,
- Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee,
- Congressman Raul Grijalva, and
- Congresswoman Maxine Waters.
Not a single, solitary United States Senator had the guts to stand and add his or her voice to the protest. Had only one done so, it might have been possible to stop Donald Trump in his tracks. As the Senators know, more than 50 Electoral College votes for Donald Trump were cast illegally. The Electoral College vote was conducted improperly and should have been discarded on January 6, 2017.
Donald Trump must not become President of the United States. He is a Russian Spy and much, much more. Stopping him must be done legally using all the laws at our disposal. But, he must be stopped. Again, understand I am not condoning or advising the use of illegal means. Nothing illegal, nothing violent. But, he must be stopped.
I would like to thank these six brave men and women for standing up for America. I hope your constituents take note of your bravery and support you in future efforts to protect and defend America.
I have tweeted about this a great deal: the senior Republican Party leadership is about the unleash on the world a President who is a Russian spy and all manner of other unspeakable things. Which leads me to my Big Question in this post: What in the world has happened to the Republican Party? The Party of Lincoln and Reagan has become the party of Tricky Dicky Nixon and Trash Talking Trump the Russkie Spy.
How? What has possessed the senior Republican leaders to allow Trump run for the party? Did they do no background checks? Did they not talk to other people, do some research? Or did they know who and what he is and deliberately supported and abetted him in his efforts to turn America over to Putin?
I voted for Ronald Reagan both times he ran for President. I was a fan then, and I am a fan now. Which makes the current state of the Republican party even more bewildering and incredible to me.
President Ronald Reagan, in his 1989 Farewell Speech to the nation left his fellow Americans and his fellow Republicans a marvelous vision for how he wanted America to be as he passed on to his reward. At one point in the speech he said something all Americans need to absorb into their bones:
“We the People” tell the Government what to do, it doesn’t tell us. “We the people” are the driver – the Government is the car. And we decide where it should go, and by what route, and how fast. Almost all the world’s constitutions are documents in which governments tell the people what their privileges are. Our Constitution is a document in which “We the People” tell the Government what it is allowed to do. “We the people” are free.
By the way, I heartily recommend reading the full text of Reagan’s Farewell Speech. You can read it here: http://www.nytimes.com/1989/01/12/news/transcript-of-reagan-s-farewell-address-to-american-people.html?pagewanted=all
When I read the full text of the speech again last night, this part made tears come to my eyes and drove me to my computer to write this post:
The past few days when I’ve been at that [White House] window upstairs, I’ve thought a bit of the shining “city upon a hill.” The phrase comes from John Winthrop, who wrote it to describe the America he imagined. What he imagined was important, because he was an early Pilgrim – an early “Freedom Man.” He journeyed here on what today we’d call a little wooden boat, and, like the other pilgrims, he was looking for a home that would be free.
I’ve spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don’t know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind, it was a tall proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind swept, God blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace – a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity, and if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors, and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here.
That last part of Reagan’s beautiful speech I have shared above gets to me, right in the gut. In the past few days the Republican Party has reaffirmed its horribly divisive and horribly expensive plan to build a wall to keep Mexicans out. Trump says Mexico will pay for it one day and then another he wants to hand the bill to the American taxpayers. Either way, we know he won’t pay for it. He has a long track record of refusing to pay for the honest labor of others.
The whole wall idea is crazy, it is racist, and, as you can see, it runs 100% contrary to Reagan’s lyric and arresting vision of how he wanted America to be. Reagan wanted this country to be open to anyone who, as he says so well, who has the will and heart to get here. Reagan never told anyone he was going to put together deportation gangs.
The wall Trump trumpets on and on about has become a fitting symbol for the hate in his heart. But it does not need to become the symbol of the Republican party.
I started this post with a question: What in the World Has Happened to the Republican Party? I close with two more questions.
#1: How can the Senior Republican Party leaders, especially those who have thrown their support so vociferously behind Donald Trump in the past month, justify what they have done to the party of Reagan by putting Trump forward and continuing to support him?
#2: When will the Republican Party cleanse itself of this corruption from the top down and return to the soaring and inspirational core values and actions which once made this party the party of Lincoln and Reagan?
I, for one, can’t wait to hear the answer to my last question.
