I’m gonna challenge myself and try to stop writing about national politics for at least a few months   Leave a comment

I feel like at this point, there is no longer as need for me to comment on the state of American Politics for a while.

We have a perfect storm of things going on in Washington. Thanks to all the leaks from within the White House, the Republicans may be forced to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump sooner than later. Already, signs are being shown the Republicans are tired of giving lip service to their pawn in the White House (Trump) whose uselefulness to them has clearly run its course. At this point, they no longer need him.

The larger question is when, not if. Like I said before, they will start setting up his exit after the midterms. Trump’s aides (anonymously) talking to the press is a red flag you can be sure they are very concerned about. Clearly his inner circle actively running interference is a sign he can’t be left alone for too much longer. These leaks are as big a problem for them as they are for Trump. Just the fact that White House staff are openly talking to the press and divulging such revealing information raises the obvious question “Who else could they be talking to?”

Things are a mess to say the least. Even worse, Pence is clearly going to be set up ad “restoring dignity to the White House and unifying the Republican Party”. There are already whispers among anti-Trump Republican voters (and former Republican voters) that they would rather deal with Pence just to be free of Trump already. Trump is losing more support than his fanboys even realize. His lack of coherency or consistency are the main reasons why. More and more folks are realizing he’s putting himself before everything else regardless of the consequences.

So, weather his fanboys like it or not Trump will likely be forced out of office. Like I said before, it will happen after the midterms. Trump indirectly let on he knows his exit is being set up when he reportedly begged evangelicals to tell their congregations to vote Republican last week in a closed door meeting, “fearing violence”. Yes there will be but it will not be the Dems. It will be his own base and the Republicans who turn on him. And he knows it, too.

As many experts predict, the Dems will likely take one House of Congress in November. Possibly both. As long as the Dems take one, they can block Trump’s Supreme Court pick from being confirmed and they will be aiming to do that knowing Pence will soon be prepared to take over the White House. The GOP knows they are gonna lose seats in both Houses and they are trying to prepare for the liklihood they lose control of one or both.

One seat being contested in Massachusetts is Elizabeth Warren’s. For some reason, both the media and the GOP think she’s gonna run for president in 2020. The Trump fanboy running against her in November is hoping to collect the bounty Trump offered to whoever can beat take her and take her seat for the GOP. Her chances of actually losing? Zero. Her challenger just doesn’t have the votes. LOL.

I’ll close this post with this: Below is the link to my PayPal. I am in need of $250 by the end of the month to help two friend in need (I am working on other things to try to come up with the money too). I will be grateful to whoever is able to help me out.

Twitter joins Facebook, Apple and YouTube in permanently banning Far Right Extremist Alex Jones   Leave a comment

…And now the internet is much nicer place.

This 2018 hasn’t been good to the creator of InfoWars or his so-named website and podcasts. Earlier this year, his Facebook accounts were disabled and his Podcasts were removed from iTunes. Some of his YouTube videos were removed before his whole channel was shut down. As of yesterday, his Twitter accounts were permanently banned as well. With that, Alex Jones has effectively lost his Social Media reach completely.

The move comes during a time in which Facebook and Twitter executives are subject to Congressional bipartiasan inquiries. One of the few things both Dems and Republicans always seem to agree on these days (you read that right, lol) is that the various social media platforms can be used as a powerful weapon to deliberately spread misinformation and lies with little to no moderation to billions worldwide. Of course, this is actually true and obviously predates the 2016 election (which is a whole other topic for another blog post lol).

Unsurprisingly Alex Jones as well as his fans and supporters are accusing Twitter (as well as YouTube, Facebook and Apple) of violating Free Speech, saying they (“They” being Social Media) “have a Left-Wing Liberal Agenda” and want to silence him (and others like him) “for speaking the truth and they don’t like it.”

This is the same guy who imfamously ranted on CNN after Sandy Hook. The funny thing is guys like him and his audience, who believes all Gun Lovers or Gun Owners should defend the 2nd Amendment with violence unsurprisingly doesn’t know how Freedom of Speech, which he also bashes at every opportunity works. Freedom of Speech means you can’t be arrested and/or prosecuted for being critical of the government or politicians (as long as you don’t call for violence or make death threats against politicians or anyone else obviously). It DOES mean as long as you’re not calling for violence or making death threats, you can say almost anything you want. What DOESN’T mean is everyone has to listen to you.

It ALSO doesn’t mean you are exempt from separate rules or policies Social Media platforms have on what is acceptible and what is not. Alex Jones repeatedly violated said policies and that’s why his accounts were shut down and blogs removed. Disagreeing with that decision doesn’t mean your civil liberties were violated. It just means you broke their rules and they responded accordingly. Nothing more or less.

By now you’re probably wondering “Why don’t guys like him get their own website?” Well, he does: InfoWars is his website, which is hosted by Breitbart (The same site former White House Chief of Staff Steve Bannon owns). Now that he’ss lost his Social Media presence, his sphere of influence has drastically shrunk and just in time for the November elections. Alex Jones will clearly end up like the Westboro Baptist Church sooner than later now: Forgotten by everyone and that’s how it should be. He will obviously try to fight but will epically fail.

Will Trump’s giant middle finger to the U.S. Intelligence Community be enough? [Updated 7/18/2018]   Leave a comment

Image result for donald trump and vladimir putin together

A few days after federal officials moved to prosecute 12 Russian Hackers for their role in influencing the 2016 Election, Trump came out of a closed-door meeting with his Russian counterpart. No one but translators were allowed in the room with them. No media, no aides, no one. One of the first things Trump said after the pair emerged from their “longer than planned” meeting: “Russia had no role in the outcome of the 2016 Election.”

Back home, The GOP and Intelligence Officials alike were going apeshit at what they were hearing. Not just what he said but how unbelievable it was when he said it. Watch the video. Does it not sound rehearsed to you? Worse than that, he made an enemy of the absolute last organization you want as an enemy: The U.S. Intelligence Community.

There is a damned good reason Trump has been directly obstructing the Russian Hacking Investigation at every turn: He has to. The common theory that has only grown hotter since the summit is Putin has something on Trump. That’s the only possible explaination. I don’t think the condemnation sent his way by many of his strongest supporters in the GOP all day was lip service.

Not this time.

Remember this article I wrote? Well, Pence has been quiet as usual and with good reason. He can’t say anything because corporate media likes to spin things either way.

The line Trump was expected to cross sooner or later…Is this it? That’s the question the GOP is probably secretly asking each other about now. Do they want to keep holding back and see where this goes? Or do they move to remove Trump now and push hard for Pence to run in 2020? We will likely know in the new few weeks and if they do decide to Impeach, it won’t happen until after the midterms. They’ll keep giving token support until then since they were able to get alot of what they wanted in just the last 16 months.

Why would the GOP wait until after the Midterms? Here’s why:

 

  • If they pull the trigger before the midterms, the party will split and they will want to avoid that at all costs. It will also guarantee they lose both Houses of Congress and the SJC Confirmation Meetings will obviously need to be postponed.
  • Unlike Trump, they rightfully fear and respect the FBI and the CIA. In general, the last thing they want is the FBI or CIA asking questions before the Midterms.
  • Should the GOP lose control of the House or the Senate–and they are expecting to lose control of at least one–they can spin it to say the people have lost faith in their government because of Trump.
  • Should the GOP keep control of both Houses–and they are expecting to lose control of at least one–they can spin it to say despite the divisive rhetoric from Trump, the people are putting their trust in the party.
  • Those last two weren’t contradictory. The GOP is gonna start to pivot regardless of the outcome of the Midterms away from Trump.
  • Pence needs to be able to claim plausible deniability in regards to Trump and it will be far easier to do that if he doesn’t make any unnecessary moves. He will let the GOP handle everything before, during and immediately after the Midterms.

…As much as the GOP felt Obama wasn’t tough enough with Putin (Crimea and Syria), I seriously doubt they were prepared for Trump prettymuch admitting to the world he is Putin’s puppet. LOL.

Pence having so few media appearances shouldn’t surprise anyone: One of the few things he and Trump have in common is he hates Corporate Media but fortunately for him, Trump is an attention whore. He’s not being followed around by the media like Biden, Cheaney and Gore were. It is more than a little unusual for the VP to be so…out of the loop, so to speak. Trump obviously not trusting him enough to tell him anything in advance aside, Pence is no fool. He knows it’s a matter of WHEN. In other words: He is preparing for when the GOP pulls the trigger.

To the Dems, ex-Republicans and Anti-Trump Republicans wondering “Ok cool. So when the fuck are they gonna do it and why haven’t they?”: We just need to be patient. You don’t need to be a Washington insider to see that SOMETHING is brewing. Some of the damage Trump’s done will be reversed as a token but not all. Too much is irreparable anyway so…yeah.

To the die hard Trump Supporters thinking by now “You don’t know shit. LOL the GOP impeach Trump? WTF are you smoking?”: Don’t take my word for it. You will see for yourself. You’re hoping–no, NEED–what happened to be part of a larger plan. And you’re half-right. The half you’re right about is Trump knows eactly what he’s doing.

At the end of the day, Trump and the GOP were in an alliance of convenience. Trump has nothing in common with the GOP and vice versa. They were just using each other up to now. We will find out for sure after the midterms if said alliance will continue or not. While the denouncements from the GOP today was…”restrained”, don’t mistake that for a lack of outrage.

They knew what they were getting themselves into when they backed him two years ago and they also know they need to be careful of how they dispose of him. First things first, they will need to turn enough of his base on him. Not those giving him lip service but those who legit like him no matter what. That includes Trump’s mouthpiece at Fox News: Sean Hannity. Trump himself just gave the GOP the right kind of ammo yesterday, too: Collusion with the leader of an enemy nation. No one likes traitors, after all.

CNN summed it up with this (unsprisingly) scathing article: Helinski was a Surrender Summit where Trump made it clear he is NOT The Leader of the Free World. That is a title that is earned, not given. All Trump has shown is he has no interest whatsoever on Democracy. That doesn’t bother me at all though. What does bother me and should concern everyone in America are those who bought into his beliefs and even worse, those who have taken it as a green light to promote Xenophobia.

Update 7/17/2018:

No automatic alt text available.

Trump held a press conference Tuesday afternoon where he walked back some of his comments from Sunday (and clearly failed at it), insisting he misspoke when he said U.S. intelligence got it wrong and there was no “colusion”. As you can see above he misspelled “COLLUSION”, which was clearly hand-written and even worse allowed a camera to catch it. The remarks were obviously prepared by his aides, who by the way he doesn’t even trust. It’s no secret he always goes off script and never reads the teleprompter when making public appearances. Much to the chagrin of White House Staff and the GOP obviously.

The Dems have been calling on the GOP to stand up to Trump knowing they can’t. Not yet, anyway. What’s sad is this poor excuse for a backtrack will be enough to satisfy Trump’s base and further alienate Anti-Trump Republicans. Unlike ex-Republicans who have been leaving the party in droves, they hold out hope establishment Republicans in Washington will pull the trigger before they lose all faith in the party. Not the billionaires who have been benefiting but the lifetime loyal Republicans who are ashamed and disgusted by the man their party put in the White House.

Yesterday, I said Step One would be to turn Trump’s fanboys against him. Step Two is open defiance against Trump by the GOP. Step Three is dealing with the dangerous extremists who’ve promised violence against anyone who tries to remove Trump from power. Step Four is the actual Impeachment Process. The first two must be done and the third is to keep the party together.

Like I said before though, the GOP will likely wait until after the Midterms to do anything significant.

Update 7/18/2018:

Image result for Donald Trump Press Conference today

Trump completed his reversal of his original comments from Sunday a short time ago today, now saying he believes his Russian counterpart directly interfered in the 2016 Election. Obviously, Trump supporters are either relieved or shouting “Told you so!” at his reversal to everyone else. Of course, his redaction changes nothing. Those who don’t like him still don’t and probably more so now. Those who do are “satisfied” they finally heard what they wanted to hear from him.

The obvious question of why he didn’t say this in front of Putin has an easy answer: He was telling the truth the first time. “How do you know he wasn’t just saying that?” Well, that excuse only works with kids for so long. Why so many insist on making every excuse for a grown man who is also the current president of the United States speaks to a larger problem but I won’t disgress further. What I will say again is the longest rope has an end.

Dissent is Patriotic (except when it isn’t)   Leave a comment

Image result for Dissent is Patriotic

…It really is something.

I realize I’ve used the phrase “Dissent is Patriotic” alot on Social Media recently and mainly because of efforts by Republican Lawmakers to take away the right to protest at the federal, state and local levels. Not just because of who they have in the White House either. They’ve been like that for decades. Earlier this year, they got a major victory with Net Neutrality being repealed. Trump got greenlit from the Supreme Court to ban people from certain countries from entering the country last month as well. Last year, a Federal Judge ruled recording Police Brutality is unconstitutional.

Before I continue, I want to repeat something I’ve been saying for two years now: I am neither a Democrat or a Republican. So, to those of you on the Right saying “Get over it, you lost!”, I didn’t vote for Hillary. For those of you on the Left saying “Wait so now you’re gonna tell me you’re a Trump supporter?”, just look at the blog post I made before this one. I am an equal opportunity destroyer.

It started during Obama’s second term but there are increased efforts to criminalize Protesting the government right now. Folks need to understand something before I wrap up: How governments REALLY take Civil Liberties from the people is by convincing enough of them that it’s the best thing ever and/or for the sake of National Security. That’s how it happens.

Now more than ever, folks need to exercise their right to protest before it’s taken from them. Here in Massachusetts–a traditionally Democratic Stronghold–Protesters and Demonstrators are mailed an invoice for Emergency Services. Police, Ambulances and so on. ALL of it. Much it has to do with the Occupy Wall St. movement 10 years ago, which took over the Rose Kennedy Greenway. The recently opened park  was trashed by the demonstrators so…yeah.

My point is state and local governments are moving to criminalize protesting as a whole. When someone has they voice taken away, everyone does.

I have to assume the media is ignoring the clear pattern by Trump and the GOP   Leave a comment

Image result for 3 branches of government checks and balances chart

There is a clear and disturbing pattern that has been going on ever since Trump took office and the media is clearly ignoring it: Trump says something outrageous or inflamatory, the media focuses on that. We get it, he’s the POTUS and you can’t just ignore him. That much larger problem is the timing always coincides with the GOP pushing cuts to Safety Nets for the poor and most at-risk through Congress.

All of the following programs have had their funding cut since Trump took office:

 

  • Americorps
  • Meals on Wheels
  • SNAP/EBT (just Cleared the House, now in the Senate)
  • Medicare and Medicaid (no surprise)
  • Social Security (Not actually federally funded)
  • Various Refugee Programs
  • FEMA
  • American Red Cross
  • Hunting Restrictions on Certain WIldlife
  • Housing and Urban Development
  • Affordable Care Act (Dead at the Federal Level)
  • Net Neutrality (Internet Providers are biding their time for now)

 

Feel free to Google this. Do not take my word for it. These are just the ones I know of.

…I want to say this on the SNAP Program. As some of you folks know, I have been on Food Stamps for 24 months now. I get $192.00 in Food Stamps every month on the 7th. On average, I use up the whole balance in 10 days. I only use my SNAP Balance to buy actual groceries, which is the only thing they can actually be used for.

Let me explain something for those who have never applied for SNAP Benefits and hopefully never will: There is a strict work requirement to get SNAP Benefits. 85% of those who are receiving SNAP Benefits are in fact employed. They would have a very hard time eating healthy and/or feeding their families without the SNAP Benefits. the rely on just to survive. Anyways at the time I applied for Food Stamps, I was still Employed by BPS but I was on an unpaid leave of absence. I resigned 2 months later and have been job hunting ever since. There is a 6-month check-in you are required to do or you WILL lose your SNAP benefits. At that time, you need to be able to prove you are at least trying to find work or are in the process of getting enrolled in a University/College if you want your benefits to continue for another year.

They don’t mess around because of people who abused the system in the past. So, the repeatedly said myth from so-called Conservatives and many Republicans “Only Lazy people are on Food Stamps” line doesn’t fly. In fact, if you are even suspected of abusing the system they will stop your benefits first and ask questions later. Some food for thought, pun intended. Those who can’t work due to injury or illness need the appropriate documentation as well obviously. Aside from losing your benefits if you’re busted for fraud, you WILL be required to pay back ever cent of those fraudulent benefits as well. Again, they don’t play around and the penality is not worth pissing them off.

Moving on to Net Neutrality being repealed. The Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are biding their time right now. Net Neutrality ended last month but they are in no hurry to start charging you extra as will happen unless Congress can be lobbied to bring it back. This is part of their plan: They likely won’t do anything for the first few months for PR reasons. Their mindset is “We won’t do anything for now since everyone’s watching us. Once most folks have moved on to other things, we’ll make our move.” The one thing coming up that’s sure to do just that are the November midterms. More on that in a separate blog post.

When Trump appointed Dr. Ben Carson as the new head of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), everyone thought it strange. More so given his only experience with HUD was when he went through the housing system himself growing up. This being one of many examples of Trump appointing people to departments with no experience or interest in expanding or improving them aside, the first major proposal Dr. Carson announced is yet another fine example of punishing the working poor and at risk just for existing: He proposed tripling how much rent tenants enrolled in Affordable Housing Programs and Section 8 would be required to pay out of pocket, effectively ending Income-Based Housing programs.

…I could go on.

Again, the reason all these cuts are happening in plain sight is BECAUSE Trump is keeping corporate media distracted. That’s how the GOP are using him more or less:

 

  1. Draw up plans to punish the working poor and those in poverty
  2. Wait for Trump to say or do something that will get the media’s attention
  3. Introduce budget cuts or restrictions of civil liberties they know Trump will rubber stamp while the media is distracted
  4. Put the proposal to a vote before Social Media spreads word of it
  5. Hope there is enough votes to make it happen the first time
  6. Repeat as needed

To what end, you might ask? To satisfy their corporate sponsors that’s why.

 

The new EPA Secretary is Fossil Fuel Lobbyist just like the one who just resigned. Folks need to understand that Capitalism’s biggest enemy is a Democratic Government of, for and by the people. Of course they want a rigged system that works for, by and of them and them alone. They control all three branches of government now and they are doing everything they can before the midterms later this year when massive turnover in both houses of Congress is anticipated.

This is no conspiracy theory. It’s conspiracy fact.

I’m glad I didn’t comment on the Separated Immigrants Situation until now   Leave a comment

…It’s always something when I have to do the media’s job for them. LOL.

Time Magazine released this cover ahead of their July issue last week:

Image result for Current Time Magazine Cover

The girl on the left comes from this photo:

Image result for Toddler with border patrol

The picture was taken by a Washington Post photographer on assignment last week. It is worth pointing out it was never said then or since if the girl was taken from her parents. The reason I am saying this is because this picture went viral online as many assumed she was being taken from her parents. In an ironic yet unsurprising development, it was revealed by NBC News shortly after the picture’s release that the girl in the picture was NOT taken from her parents. I mention this because this picture was used to help raise millions of dollars online for detained migrant families.

I stopped talking about Politics for a few months not just because it’s exhausting and American Politics is as toxic as ever. I also stopped because  I wanted to wait for Snopes.com, Fairness And Accuracy In Reporting (FAIR) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to give me what I knew corporate media wasn’t: Unbiased facts and the truth.

Now, it IS true that the current immigration policy was enacted while President Obama was in office. That actually IS true. In fact, part of the 14th Amendment–the one that grants citizenship to anyone born on US Soil or a U.S. Territory such as Puerto Rico and Guam–was amended as part of a deal Obama cut with Republicans to end the Government Shutdown at the time. The GOP was “satisfied enough” with the deal to end the shutdown they forced though the full scope of what it allowed wasn’t made clear until recently. I’m referring to the Immigration Detention controversy.

What’s also true is the new immigration policy was never enforced until recently because let’s face it, Obama wasn’t about to piss off his base so much he wouldn’t have been elected to a second term. He was smart enough to understand that and went out of his way to avoid enforcing it during both of his terms. The GOP’s top brass were clearly waiting for Trump to take office so they could enforce it unchallenged.

To those of you who keep parroting the fiction “Illegals come here and get government assistence”, this part’s for you: It’s actually impossible for anyone who is either not a citizen or doesn’t have a Green Card/Legal Status to get ANY kind of government assistence. This is fact. It’s really not worth jail time and a fine trying either.

Image result for Pregnant Migrant

“Ever heard of anchor babies?”, you might be asking? Remember the deal Obama made with the GOP I mentioned before in which the 14th Amendment was amended? The term “Achor Baby” became obsolete at that time. We’re talking 8 years now. I find it strange the GOP didn’t make this fact they fought to make reality widely known. The only possible reason I can think of is it makes them look good to make people think that’s still possible.

The irony is though it was clearly meant to target Latin American immigrants, it was quickly pushed through because Chinese Human Traffickers had built an industry to bring pregnant women to the West Coast to give birth where they would give up their babies, become U.S. Citizens and then take their benefits from them. It was becoming a really big problem and needed to be address since the Human Trafficking alone was a million-dollar industry and suspected to be funded or condoned by the Chinese government.

Anywho, the loophole was closed. How the 14th Amendment now works is if a pregnant foreign national gives birth on U.S. soil or while in U.S. custody, they are born a citizen of the mother’s country of origin UNLESS the father is an U.S. Citizen (Born or Naturalized) AND they sign the birth certificate. In such a case the child will be born a U.S. Citizen and/or a citizen of the mother’s country (Dual Citizenship). Further, the mother would not automatically become a U.S. Citizen just because their child is born to an American father. She would still need to go through the legal process to become a U.S. Citizen herself.

Again, no more Anchor Babies. It’s no longer possible.

Since that costs at least $1000 USD in fees and visas…you see where I’m going here? Her only hope would then be to marry someone willing to sponsor her. Further, the laws about becoming a citizen by Marriage were tightened to crack down hard on fraud. You now need a marriage license first before you apply for a Green Card by Marriage. This plus the high cost in fees and visas make it unviable for fraud: The U.S. Citizen needs to prove they are committed to marrying the foreign national. Should the Engagement be called off after the paperwork is filed–feelings can change and are allowed to after all–the marriage visa is nullified.

Why am I saying all this?

Because folks are convinced what they believe to be true is fact or take what they hear at face value and never question it just because whoever told them said so. Dissent is Patroitic.

In closing, I got some more posts on recent events in the U.S. that I want to get into.  I wanted to do this one first because too many people are focusing on this distraction. “WTF are you talking about?”, you may ask? See the post after the next post. Why the one after the next? Because in the next post I will comment on the Lebron James Sweepstakes and NBA Free Agency. LOL.

New Jersey joins Massachusetts as the second state to have Health Insurance Mandate   Leave a comment

Image result for Massachusetts and New Jersey

In 2006, Massachusetts made U.S. history as the first state in the nation to Mandate Health Insurance for all. It also made Healthcare in Massachusetts a right. it was signed into law by former governor and former Presidental candidate Mitt Romney. Four years later, Former president Obama used Massachusetts as a model to pass the Affordable Care Act (The ACA, also known as Obamacare) for the whole country. Republicans spent the next 7 years weakening the ACA until they finally killed it in 2017. This left Massachusetts, which has had had Romney Care since 2006 as the only state in the U.S. with Free Universal Healthcare for all.

That will change on January 1, 2019.

New Jersey Lawmakers passed legislation using the ACA as a model earlier today. Governor Phil Murphy signed the bill restoring the Obamacare health insurance mandate for the state of New Jersey. The move was made because as everyone outside Massachusetts quickly discovered, Republicans in Congress offered no alternative to the ACA and simply wanted to get rid of it for 100% political reasons. New Jersey is also the first state to defy the ACA repeal by restoring what had been rolled back at the state level. They decision was made in reaction to fears of a mass exodus from the state and also to ironically stabilize the state’s healthcare system. Yes, the ACA brought stability as advertised.

Connecticuit, Maryland, California and New Mexico are just a handful of other states that are working to restore and expand on the parts of ACA that were repealed at the state level. Massachusetts passed legislation earlier this year to improve Romneycare in reaction to the ACA repeal as well.

…This is something many of you who follow me on Facebook have seen me talk about alot but it always bothered me that after the ACA repeal, there was no news of states adopting their own version of it until now. New Jersey is the first to step up when it counts big time. Given the circumstances, they were forced to go this route though it was the right move. More states with college.

Now, let’s see if we can get some action in Education: As of 2017, you can go to a 2-year school in Boston for Free.
