October 2018 Update

I’ve been dragging my feet on posting a new blog report (sorry). There’s just too much going on right now to add to the mix. I paid very close attention to the Kavanaugh hearings (guilty as charged) and am in shock with at least half the nation that this serial sexual abuser was confirmed to the Supreme Court.

A lot of things did NOT happen as they should have. Only 9 witnesses were ‘interviewed’ by the FBI after the week-long delay on the hearings was requested (and Christine Ford was NOT one of them). Trump directly interfered with the witness list and who the FBI could and could not talk to during this “delay”. In retrospect, that was their plan (the Rape Party) all along, and now we know why. Nearly 50 additional witnesses offered to come forward and testify against Kavanaugh – not a single one of these people were interviewed in the ‘allowed’ period. But several published their statements in the newspapers anyway.

Trolling America

I’ve been doing some research on the Internet Research Agency (IRA), or Russian troll farm. There’s no doubt at all that Russian trolling of social media, websites, articles and commentary has reached a fever pitch. I’m still trying to discern the overall goal of this activity – but it might just be too obvious, meaning that “division” is what it is all about. Divide Americans (and other countries) and make them disbelieve everything, angry at everyone and distrustful of everyone.

Vendetta – Trump, Terrorism and Fascism

My apologies to everyone. I’ve been too busy and in too much pain to write here. I’m also totally disgusted at the ridiculous antics of the President, then horrified by the Puerto Rico disaster and then the Las Vegas mass casualty event.

A few words are in order:

Americans are accustomed to personal freedom of expression and opinion. However, under Trump, this is being denied more and more. No American is required to be patriotic. No American is required to “respect the flag” (whatever that means). No American is required to stand by law for the national anthem, although there is probably some uniform code of military justice that may have some kind of requirement for those in uniform, but this is irrelevant anyway to civilians or the NFL players. No American is required to support the military. But virtually all of these claims are specious at best, and inaccurate.

Amendment No 1096

This is something to be aware of Рand to watch out for in the coming daze ahead: Amendment No 1096.

This has the potential to silence information and dissent. Another brick in the rising fascist wall.

It’s ironic – America was rabidly anti-communist for decades, declaring that communism, the Red Threat was everywhere. They brought down the house so to speak, during the McCarthy era. And now, decades later, it is a former communist country that is broadcasting news and opinions into America, about America. They have revealed a lot of the shenanigans going on in our own government. Shutting it down is an attempt to silence criticism.

How Not To Make America Great Again

Most of us can relate to how workers, those that actually “do” and produce, laboring in offices, shops, warehouses and factories are always rewarded less then those that don’t actually perform any real work.

Decision makers as they like to be called, reap the rewards. And so do owners. The higher muckety-ups that drive the businesses. My wife related a story to me about her career. She was one of the workers, but their year-end reward for an entire year of labor was a coffee cup and a few slices of pizza. The supervisors and managers got free vacations, car rentals and lobster dinners. They didn’t produce anything, or even do much of anything but chatter away in their offices every day.

Surviving Trump

I listened to Trump’s speech (so you don’t have to endure this torture) and read through many of the comments from John Q. Public that followed.

It’s very, very clear that there are two worlds unfolding. The one that adheres to reality — and the one that doesn’t.

For Trump supporters, they were falling all over themselves with glee that this wondrous man, truly a gift from God, had the balls to issue such threats from the floor of the United Nations.

More Texas News You May Have Missed

Texas has a bit of ‘other news’ that you might have missed, but it’s worthwhile read (please do) –¬† Trump Pardons Sheriff Joe Arpaio (Wait, Do People Actually Know Just How Evil This Man Is?)

Wow! What do you do when the President of the Unites States pardons a monster like this?

There is such an incredible amount of evidence and consistency to this man’s actions over many years that it defies all probabilities of his claimed innocence. And yet – Donald Trump, bigot in chief pardons Arpaio.
