Trump Wages WAR Against America’s Working Poor…that’s YOU!!

I want to address two things in this post. First is Puerto Rico and second is the Affordable Health Care Act (aka: Obamacare). Let me begin with Puerto Rico. Yesterday the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico Carmen Yulin Cruz accused Trump of “genocide” in relation to the recovery effort in Puerto Rico following a massive hurricane that devastated the US territory a few weeks ago. Notice Puerto Rico is a US TERRITORY and NOT some foreign country? Puerto Rico was bankrupt before the hurricane hit and now the infrastructure is completely devastated making life almost impossible on the island. Trumps response has left a lot to be desired and yesterday after Congress (yes they actually did something) passed a bill granting more funding for disaster relief his response was tweeting that “we can’t stay in Puerto Rico forever.” WTF? What in the hell was that tweet all about? No one expects FEMA to stay in Puerto Rico forever and, frankly, his statement (yes he has said all of his tweets are OFFICIAL presidential statements) was inappropriate. So what does Trump plan to do? Leave the people of Puerto Rico to fend for themselves and be content with the US territory sinking into a Third World State?

I like what US Representative Luis V. Gutierrez D-Ill said yesterday. He said,, “I ask every American that has love, and not hate in their hearts, to stand with Puerto Rico and let this President know we WILL NOT BE LEFT TO DIE!”. I think Gutierrez hit the nail on the head because HATE is the problem here with Trump! I knew during his presidential campaign 2016 when the KKK and Neo-Nazis came out quickly supporting Trump that something was amiss and his slow response to condemn the riots in Charlottesville involving Neo-Nazis demonstrating there only added more proof that Trump IS A RACIST! This plus all of his rhetoric about Mexico and his beloved Berlin-style SOVIET wall he wants to build is all proof that this president does NOT see himself as President of all Americans especially Hispanic and Minority Americans! How much more proof do we need that Trump is a hardcore RACIST? Add atop all of this his recent move to suspend DACA which threatens to deport Hispanic youth that were brought to America illegally by their parents crossing our border illegally and you’ve got plenty of evidence that Trump is a RACIST.

Trump’s Hypocrisy! Got a clue yet America??

He’s only been in the Crap House for 9 months but it seems like he’s been there for at least 4 years already.  Yes, I’m talking about our esteemed President Donald J. Trump and I don’t know about you but to me and many others he’s already a full-fledged nightmare that everyone is wishing would just go away.  Trump and his administration are a bit like living in the “Twilight Zone.”  For starters it should now be clear to everyone that Trump has problems working with people.  In fact, it appears he can’t work with people because he seems to have an attitude of “my way or no way.”  That attitude might work in the greed ridden halls of business but it doesn’t work when you are the leader of a country or in any other high political office.  Politics is an art and, specifically, it is an art of COMPROMISE.  The Democrats showed during 8 years of the Obama regime that they didn’t understand that little basic reality of politics and now the Republicans are showing that they don’t get it either!  And as for Trump?  The man doesn’t even know the meaning of the world “compromise” I assure you.

Trump is now going to bed with the Democrats because he can’t get anything done with his own party, the GOP, and that would be because of his attitude of “my way or no way.”  Like I said, Trump has problems working with other people.  Right off the bat he offended the GOP leadership in both the Senate and House to the point that all they wanted was to do anything and everything they could to screw him over and they’ve done just that for the past 9 months.  That’s why Trump’s agenda has gone nowhere!  So now he’s hopped in bed with the Democrats to get Obamacare axed and he’s going after GOP congressmen and senators who don’t support the latest version of “repeal and replace.”  Case in point….Trump is now going after Rand Paul for not supporting the latest version to screw the working poor out of affordable healthcare.

No one should be surprised by Trump’s actions (or lack thereof) over the past 9 months because he’s simply doing what he’s done for decades in the business world.  That is….Screwing people over!  That’s the way he’s gotten to where he is via his real estate business and investments, screwing people over, and he’s made a lot of enemies along the way who have not forgotten how they were screwed by him.  Trump is just continuing his typical M. O.  A number of his FORMER supporters, I saw a few days ago, burned their “MAGA” hats in a bonfire already because they are so frustrated and disappointed with him.  LOL guess they now realize just how Trump played them like a fiddle for the naive people they are.  But, again, get used to it because that is what Trump has done in the business world for decades now and in the near future he will continue to screw over his supporters IF and when he deems it to HIS advantage.  This man, this president, has no loyalty to anyone but himself, period!

Dictator Trump Mussolini Kicks DACA Can to Worthless US Congress!!

And so it appears that the reincarnation of the Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini now exists in the person of Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America…………somehow…………….

Trump continuing his quest to destroy all things done by his predecessor Barack H. Obama has now turned to eliminating DACA which was a program designed for children of illegals in the US so they could stay in our country. As of yesterday that security for these youth is now gone!  So I take it that as of yesterday the US now punished the CHILDREN of criminals for crimes committed by their parents?  So the very next murder that happens I suspect that the children of the killer will be arrested and charged with homicide along with the killer parent.  Somewhere there is logic in this kind of thinking, at least, in the DERANGED mind of Donald J. Trump.  Sorry but I have no concluded after being in the WH for about 9 months that this President is unstable and very possibly even PSYCHOTIC!  Just like Benito Mussolini was!!

Oh but wait………Trump says he acting with compassion.  Seriously?  To remove the security that of these youth who were brought to America through no fault of their own, attended American schools, served in the US military, graduated from US universities, and who work in AMERICAN jobs is NOT compassionate at all.  In fact, it is downright evil and noncompassionate!  MOST of these youth have NEVER been to Mexico or Central America and don’t even speak Spanish.  Why?  Because they are AMERICANS!

Before you spout off the standard Trump defense put yourself in their shoes.  Imagine having known nothing but America and now being threatened with deportation to some sewage pile in Mexico City simply because when you were 6 months old your parents illegally came into the US.  Since your beginning you’ve considered yourself to be an American and now suddenly you realize you are not.  And now you don’t know what is going to happen to you, your future, or YOUR children!  That is BEYOND HORRIFIC!!  And Donald Trump should be absolutely ashamed of himself!!  But I’m sure he’s not because just like Mussolini I’m sure Trump thinks he can do no wrong.

Trump has only been in office for about 9 months and, frankly, it seems like he’s been in office for far longer than that.  He and his presidency are quickly turning out to be a nightmare for MANY Americans.  This man is unstable and Vice President Pence along with Congress need to act now to remove him from office on ground that he is insane.  And HE IS!!

Just what in the hell is Trump trying to do?  Put us back to pre-1960s conditions complete with separate bathrooms and all non-white forced to ride in the back of the bus?  WTF is this man thinking?  He’s not uniting anyone but he sure is dividing everyone in ways none of us could have imagined.  This president only in office for 9 months is already a FAILURE!!  What he SHOULD HAVE DONE is to keep DACA in place and/or make all of these youth US citizens effective immediately.  They ARE Americans!

Trump and his cronies are playing a very dangerous game.  Since Day One RACISM has been very apparent with this president.  Oh yes, he has the token Black Man in his cabinet serving as HUD Secretary and the best thing that Dr Ben Carson could do is RESIGN immediately in protest and on LIVE TV!!  How Carson can serve in this racist Nazi regime is beyond me.  Trump is dividing the American people along racial lines and that is very dangerous. Something is going to give and this nation is going to find itself in the midst of an armed and bloody revolution llike the world has never seen before.  It’s coming!  The writing is all over the wall now!  Only a FOOL now believes such a thing can’t happen in the good-ole-boy-USA!!

For the past 9 months I’ve tried really hard to give Trump the benefit of the doubt but I can no longer do so.  He’s now shown his true colors as a Nazi Corporatist and racist.  He hasn’t done ANYTHING original because he’s spent the past 9 months involved in some sort of psychotic obsession bent on destroying everything accomplished by President Obama.  He hasn’t accomplished one solitary campaign promise!  There is something WRONG with this man and Americans had better wake up before he rips this nation apart in ways we DON’T want to even imagine!

Shame on you Donald Trump!!  BAD decision!

PS- LMAO does Trump actually think that the current Congress is going to do anything about DACA?  For at least the past decade now these 535 members have done absolutely NOTHING and I’m still trying to figure out why we are even paying these LOSERS!!  Congress isn’t going to do anything to save DACA.  They will twiddle their thumbs as usual, whine (which they are pros at), and make up all sorts of excuses for their inaction and INCOMPETENCE!

Racism in America

The demise of America as we know it is now in full swing just as I’ve been warning people about for several decades now. Racial tensions are brewing and those tensions have been the undercurrent of America since the 1960s civil rights era. Back then President Lyndon B. Johnson gave minorities just enough to placate them but he never really did give them equality. This was his solution to ending the race riots that swept across our nation back then but his actions didn’t solve anything. Racism in America simply went underground and silent. Silent? Well maybe not!

Racial discrimination peaked its ugly head every so often in the form of housing discrimination, job discrimination, equal pay discrimination, etc.  In subtle little ways it was clear to people like me who watch society that discrimination was still very much alive in America after LBJ.

Basically, what has been happening since the civil rights era is that racial tensions have been brewing ever so slowly but we’ve also added to the mix such things as religious discrimination, gender discrimination, disability discrimination, and discrimination against the LBGT community among others.  So all of these “ingredients” of discrimination have been brewing for many decades now and we have now come to a point in which that brew is about to over boil in ways we cannot even imagine in this nation.

Add to all of this the unbridled greed of the “haves” and the growing discontent of the “have-nots” plus a dash of hard economic times causing people to spend their savings and loose their homes and jobs and you’ve got the recipe for civil unrest across the boards to the point of outright violent revolution by the masses!  Don’t make the mistake of thinking the “powers that be” don’t already know this.  THEY DO!  That’s why they’ve spent the last few years militarizing our police, in fact.  It’s all designed to keep YOU in YOUR place no matter what your skin color, gender, sexual preference, or faith.  The 1% is NOT about to give up anything to the 99% without a good fight!

And the saga continues………….

Heads rolled this past week at CNN over FAKE NEWS involving President Trump and the Russia scandal. Seems it’s all fake news (propaganda) designed to unseat the POTUS conjured up by CNN. Since then CNN and the president have been battling on Twitter including the president releasing a video in which he is seen beating up an individual with the CNN logo covering his face.

Additionally, a CNN producer was filmed commenting that American voters are as “stupid as shit” and that ignited yet another firestorm. Also, the Trump administration has requested voter names and info from various states claiming they want to expose voter fraud in the last election. Trump maintains he won not only the electoral college vote but also the popular vote. However, statistics say Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by 3 million votes. Continue reading

Senate Healthcare Bill Ready to Persecute the Poor!!

The US Senate has been secretly working on a bill to “reform” Obamacare and the reason it’s been all so secret is because these 100 lobbyists that work for corporate America and NOT the American people know that what is in their bill, if revealed to soon, would PISS OFF Americans especially the elderly and the poor!

Rumor has it that the Senate bill guts the expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare meaning that millions of poor and working poor will soon have NO health insurance which will put us back to square 1 prior to the enactment of Obamacare! Of course there is also the House version of the bill which also includes an AGE TAX meaning that if you are over 50 years old or have a pre-existing condition the Health Insurance CRIMINAL Companies can charge you up to 5 times higher premiums!

BOTH bills are an absolute FARCE! Both bills are geared towards once again placing the burden and YOKE on the neck of the poor! But I expect nothing less from the Republicans who have a history of being for big business and NOT for the American people. Trump is CLEARLY a Corporatist even moreso that Obama was. He keeps saying the healthcare bill is going to be “really good.” I suppose if you are one of the shareholders in a healthcare insurance company or drug company then YES it is going to be a really good deal for YOU. But, if you happen to be among the MAJORITY of Americans who are poor or the working poor then either bill is going to be a disaster for YOU.

Obviously, both the Senate and House bills are designed to eliminate health insurance for the working poor and to suck as much money out of the rest of us as possible to satisfy the GREEDY insurance companies and the GREEDY politicians like Donald Trump, Paul Ryan, and Mitch McConnell. American down on Main Street need to awaken to the now CLEAR FACT that our government does NOT work for We The People but for Wall Street exclusively! Every so often they throw us a crumb just to keep us from rising up. Continue reading

Investigative Report I: Government Accountability Tucson, Arizona

Tucson, Arizona

Over the course of the next few (or more) weeks I’m going to be looking into government accountability and corruption from an investigative journalist point of view.  These posts will appear under their own headline “Investigative Report” beginning with this post here.  Before I begin, however, let’s lay out of few facts.  🙂

Corruption in government today is at an all time high.  This corruption exists from the lowest levels (city) to the highest levels (federal).  Somehow we have become a nation in which our so called “public servants” mistakenly believe themselves to be aristocrats rather than “public servants” and they waste no time at all spending PUBLIC monies on THEIR little pet projects, most of which are designed to honor their own egos and have little to nothing to do with serving the general public!  Oh yes, in today’s GREEDY American society it’s all about stroking our own egos.

When the founders of this nation originated the Constitution and Bill of Rights the intention was that common folk would serve in government and then return to their private lives but this, in recent years, has not been the case at all.  Instead what we have today are politicians (public servants) who have made their public service into a career! This is why we have people in the United States Senate, for example, serving for 40 years or more!  Well, public service was never intended to be a career and this is why TERM LIMITS at ALL LEVELS of government are so important and need to be enacted across the board from the lowest to the highest levels of government.  So called “Career Politicians” have a tendency to become “too comfortable” and they also have a tendency to become CORRUPT.  They start out serving the people but they end up serving special interests and somewhere along the line you will usually find a money trail (read BRIBERY)!
