What happens on Jan. 21, 2021? Oh, you mean Trump leaves office cuz he’s been voted out? Wake up, son. Trump ain’t going ANYWHERE. If there even is an election (which I doubt) Trump will announce he won and anybody who disputes that is a traitor, antifa seditionist and communist conspirator. Wouldn’t surprise me at all if on Nov. 4, we learn that Biden, Bernie, Perez, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer and their staffs have been arrested and are behind barbed wire. Hllary too. And Obama? Nah, he’ll play ball.
Right. Item: Who in their right mind, if they are really running for the Presidency would announce that they are going to kill Social Security and Medicare? The Trump coup is already set. He’s not going anywhere.
I would LOVE to throw a dart at his head and have it stick!
Most of Trump’s cult (base) believe they have been discarded by our past government leaders, and they believe Trump is an outsider to the establishment (he’s not). They most likely approve of anything that brings down the government, like destroying agency legitimacy by reducing their effectiveness for the people (like the two you bring up), country, and environment, even when those reductions directly impact their own lives for the worse.
So what you’re saying is, “law enforcement” is no longer obliged to “protect and serve” the citizenry responsible for paying their salaries?
Such a view reduces “law enforcement” to an oxymoron.
Blah, blah, blah. Baa, baa, baa. Bah, bah, bah. And all we get from the “alternative” party, the “opposition,” the “resistance,” is more silence, more complicity, more collaboration with this absurd sum of criminal behavior. NOTHING short of direct action against the sociopathic, criminally insane so-called leadership of this nation – its politicians, corporations, military, law enforcement, facile corporate media, “social” (anti-social) media – will change a damned thing. A complete shut-down of business, of all life-as-usual, is essential, and with that, prepare for a terrible loss of life at the hands of the zombies who control our destiny. We have let the disease regress humanity for far too long to salvage this species.
I might have thought by now that most readers on this website would understand that our legal system is primarily a contrivance intended to perpetuate power and whatever’s necessary to maintain power and privilege for the sake of profit. That’s why stealing a loaf of bread by a poor person results in years of incarceration (thanks to the likes of Kamala Harris) and the clear murder of a U. S. citizen by “law” enforcement results in exoneration of the killers. Law enforcement isn’t just an oxymoron, it’s a facade, a delusion, and a massive deception perpetrated on justice.
Yes, yes, and yes. Yet still more of the same, with or without Trump. Democrats have no interest is what’s better for people, this country, or the earth, just in maintaining their status as tissue-paper resistance. Obama has admitted as much – he was (is) a fraud, a liar, and a coward, “good at killing” but not at governing or tellling the truth – yet now he’s trumpeting for more of the same. True, we are all squeezed between boulders and I-beams, just don’t think that Democrats will seek justice or any sort of redemption for people or planet. They are killers and fascist collaborators.
So true crucifixion-thorn! Thank you. We must increase pressure and actions on the DP entrenched hierarchy that dominates that private political club/corporation falsely called a political party, it is not - it is a money-making system that is controlled by all the political demands we have allowed and tolerated to serve wealth and power - those that bribe and control the party and its bosses - they do not serve the Republic, rule of law, honesty, and the public!
ENOUGH! either a reformation or a new party - a People’s Party - that actually serves the public and all the notions of honest governance that have been lost - especially governance FOR the Common Good (including our "political parties!) as John Adams wrote so clearly.
“ Government is instituted for the common good ; for the protection, safety, prosperity and happiness of the people; and not for the profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men.”
You cannot support Trump and the Law also. You cannot vote for Trump and believe you are a law abiding citizen. If you believe both you are delusional and , more importantly , not a good citizen at all.
It is black and white, open and shut, Trump and his band of Brown Shirts are defecating on our constitution, and you are joining him.
Ironic you note the only US president who comes closest to being as bad as Trump.
Where in the world did you get that idea? Law Enforcement must be under the control of ELECTED personnel. If judges stand for re-election on a regular periodicity, then one can consider placing law enforcement under the Judiciary, but to appoint lifetime judges with the authority to control the entire process is a prescription for tyranny.
And…nothing will be done about Wilbur Ross breaking a court order. The Democrats will whine and call for an investigation, so that they appear to be doing something and then Ross’ criminality will result in no consequences, no punishment. Laws do not apply to the oligarchs and their quislings in the US. Laws only apply to those who are poor and without power.
General strikes are already planned and record strike waves have been taking place across the US mainland since before the virus struck. The electoral process and the so called rule of law is theater and will be bypassed as real change will only come from people in the streets.
Succinct, accurate and well said.
Voting for Biden and mistaking that for democracy isn’t fighting, it’s complicity. The electoral process in the US is theater and will be bypassed. Real change is only going to come from the bottom up and that means that both of the state approved fake political parties need to be burned to the ground. The faux so called centrists, the right wingers who took over the Democratic Party in the 90’s are also the enemy, as much as the idiot Trump supporters and will be treated as such going forward. They are the enablers, without whom fascism wouldn’t be able to gain a foothold.
“Nice people made the best Nazis. My mom grew up next to them. They got along, refused to make waves, looked the other way when things got ugly and focused on happier things than “politics.” They were lovely people who turned their heads as their neighbors were dragged away. You know who weren’t nice people? Resisters.”
― Naomi Shulman
As far as racists and megalomaniacs go, Jackson and Trump are the standard.
The biggest problem I have seen in my 57 years is that the USA has experienced arguably five of our worst presidencies in just the last fifty years. Starting with Nixon, our nation seems to be in an unending downward spiral, living from recession to recession, and scandal to scandal. From The post Vietnam economic doldrums, to the first real estate bubble, to the savings and loan scandal, to the tech bubble, to post 9/11 slump, to the W financial disaster of 2008, and now the post Covid/Great Trump Grift. And all those occurring in the backdrop of Vietnam, watergate, Iran-contra, saving and loan, the Clinton years, the W years, and now the Trump debacle.
It’s a goddamn miracle we haven’t collapsed before this.
Wilbur puts extra meaning to “we just don’t count.”
It’s interesting to note that people who supported Adolf Hitler said the same things about the political parties that opposed Hitler that you’re saying about Biden and the Dems.
Obviously, Biden and the corporate Dems are corrupt and are a capitalist-imperialist-empire party just like the GOP is.
However, Biden is not a sick, would-be Fuhrer, tax dodger, fraudster, megalomaniac, sexual predator, daughter-humper and fascist, lying cult leader like Trump is, and the Democratic Party in Congress has at least 90 progressive members, whereas the GOP has zero.
We only have two choices in this presidential election, and Biden is by far the lesser evil.
Another four years of Trump and this country will be a smoldering ruin run by Trump Inc. and the racist, camo-wearing, Trump cult militias.
The White House has become an asylum for psychopaths and scoundrels. If there is any justice left in America prison time is coming.
