      I'm a strong supporter of better gun control--more careful regulation of sales, etc. (not confiscation)--but this makes me think, uncomfortably, about whether I should be better armed (aarrrggghh) (and, BTW--no pay wall--but consider contributing to The Guardian)--

          Ed Buckner popped this story on Yabberz. I have a slightly different take, and I share to my thousands of FB friends and followers.

          At any rate, the more people who read this story, the better.

          Useful Idiot, Willing Accomplice, Or Traitor?

          (Bravo to the author of my seed article! Excellent work.)


          When it is proved, and it will be, that Trump enlisted the aid of Russian spies to corrupt the electoral process and steal the Presidential election, much to the advantage of his organized crime partners; then we will know that Trump is an idiot, accomplice and traitor. We already know that he is an idiot and accomplice from his public statements.

          We know now that 45* hates the United States. We know that the people who support him want to destroy our country, end democracy worldwide, and kill us. If you don't know that they want to kill us all, then re-read the words of the head of the N.R.A. who said that it "might be necessary" to kill everyone who disagrees with their extremist, racist murderous beliefs. The rest is proved pretty nicely in my seed article.

          Trump is a useful idiot by profession. He has devoted his life to conspicuous idiocy. He thinks that by playing the fool he proves that everyone is as stupid as he is. But, he can't even read and write. He thinks that being a successful criminal shows that everyone should be as crooked, and proud of it, as he is. But, he is hunted; and he will be run to ground and killed, eventually, like an animal. Because he is a traitor! Everyone saw Trump invite Russian hackers and spies to interfere in elections, everyone knows that they did. Everyone knows that criminals in the Republican Caucus are covering up that very interference. So Trump, and his supporters are willing accomplices. They know it's illegal and they know it's treason; but they do it anyway because they believe that they can get away with it: that's the definition of criminality. They are criminals. We should put them in prison.

          Has Trump taken the final step and committed treasonous acts? Of course he has, right up front, when he invited Russian hackers and trolls to interfere.

          Was that the plan all along, and, oh so mafia-like: Commit treason in plain sight, and dare anyone to do anything about it. When they don't, everything after that pales in comparison, and you can do anything; such as replace "law" with mafia-style arbitration, threaten and harm anyone who opposes you and your campaign, and you are unimpeded in installing totalitarianism as our form of government, with Trump as absolute autocrat (where his word IS law).

          Idiot, Conspirator AND Traitor! Now, that is a definition that I will accept for my President of the United States.


          Sure makes you wonder who: "unindicted co- conspirator" is. And why? What sin is so great that one would commit treason to hide it? What dream of Avarice is so alluring that one would commit fratricide to make concrete, what hate so all-consuming as to justify? And why did our law enforcement fail us? That's the question that overshadows all others. Why did law enforcement betray the People of the United States?

          Our government, as things stand, is probably a fraud and a counterfeit. If anyone should know the answer to that question, it is the federal police. But, they don't include us in the loop. No one has our backs. Damn! I almost forgot that "collusion" thing. Trump colludes every time he has secret meetings with criminal dictators. They may be making secret plans to make sure that everyone has a happy birthday this year, or are in direct extremely personal contact planning to overthrow the United States government and end democracy worldwide. I don't know. There are people who do. I know one thing though: if it's the latter, and Trump received any sort of instructions from Putin without informing Congress, or aid from them in fixing any election, anywhere, then the crime is treason and impeachable, and the punishments may include death.

              “Sir," NBC’s Peter Alexander said, "the Constitution says treason is punishable by death.”

              Trump gave a slight nod of acknowledgment.

              “You’ve accused your adversaries of treason,” Alexander continued. “Who specifically are you accusing of treason?”

              Trump named

              James Comey

              Andrew McCabe

              Peter Strzok

              Lisa Page

              Chilling, when you have a President who will name his political opponents as guilty of treason, knowing that treason is punishable by death.

              He just quite literally called for his political opponents to be executed, just because they oppose him.

              I TOLD you all...before the election in 2016...that Trump did not want to be President...he wanted to be KING OF AMERICA.

              I hate being right.

                  I don't finally agree with this short essay, but she makes a sprightly, effective case for her position and does at least convince me that giving "diversity points" to every Democratic woman running makes sense.

                  A very interesting read, whether you accept her conclusion or not--

                  Yes, Congress Can Walk And Chew Gum....

                      This Congress has passed over 100 bills since they took their seats in January, many of them are bipartisan. They are timely and necessary. Congress is quite capable of chewing gum, walking and and a few other things on the side. The Senate is another case indeed. The Senate Majority Leader, has proclaimed himself, "The Grim Reaper," because he is where the bills go to die. If you are one of those people who believe that Congress is too obsessed with Trump to do their jobs, you are woefully uninformed or maybe you would rather repeat talking points, regardless of reality.

                      I think most of the Congress would love nothing more than impeaching Donald J Trump. They eventually will, I have no doubt. As things are, it would be hard to believe that the Senate would indict. In return, we also know that that it will only inflame him, make him more off the hook, desperate and dangerous than he already is, but it is not not likely to remove him. Tolerating this behavior from the Executive Branch, sets a terrible precedent for the behavior of future Presidents.

                      We have a complicit Senate Majority, who fear being primaried, more than they fear the fascist wannabe dictator in the Oval Office. A good number of them are members in good standing of the John Birch Society, the few that aren't; have learned that it's better to look the other way. Yes, there are some Democrats, and no, they are not shy. Their outrage is lost to the Majority.

                      The Majority of our Senate does not care about anything that Trump does, any more than they care about what he has already done. Yesterday, our President handed Presidential powers over to our AG, who has already lied to Congress, lied to us and arguably obstructed justice. The wall that keeps our DOJ and Executive Branch as separate, but equal entities, has been breached, publicly. The implications are huge and dangerous to all Americans. They are especially dangerous to our press, our lawmakers and anyone who opposes the President.

                      Trump has effectively created a Police State, with mountains of propaganda in the way of information, hand picked with Presidential powers, by a man who has lied to Congress, misrepresented a 22 month report because he does not believe that anyone should question our president or concern ourselves with what he does or whom he does it with.

                      We live in "interesting," times.

                          Fascism (/ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a form of radical, right-wing, authoritarian ultranationalism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy

                          The following is a recap of how Trump and company are attempting to take over our country. If ever we could see his attempt to rule/dictate, this past week he’s pushed it into our faces so that we cannot ignore it.

                          I am leaving just a few paragraphs and a link to be read by those of us who resist and openly advocate and fight against Trump’s group of ugly, arrogant and no longer camouflaged authoritarianism.

                          Too many outrages have taken place to make it feasible to copy and paste this entire article, but since the fascism is increasing, I hope Yabberz readers will click on the link and read the report. Our very democracy is under fire!

                          .

                          Intro:

                          Welcome to another edition of What Fresh Hell?, Raw Story’s roundup of news items that might have become controversies under another regime, but got buried – or were at least under-appreciated – due to the daily firehose of political pratfalls, unhinged tweet storms and other sundry embarrassments coming out of the current White House.

                          This was a banner week of outrages from the reliably outrageous Trump gang but we shouldn’t let that obscure the overarching storyline. We’re no longer dealing with creeping authoritarianism; Trump went all-in this week. A president* who has run roughshod over democratic norms, politicized law enforcement and shown nothing but contempt for the co-equal branches of government made two moves that turned it up to 11.

                              The US spends more on the offense dept than the next, 8, maybe 10 countries, combined.

                              Iran is a great threat, all the way in the Middle East.

                              The US has 8oo or so military installations in more than 130 countries. Only 50 of them supported regime change in Venezuela.

                              So they, the rulers, are united in abridging the freedom of the press, and slow walking the country into the next war, with? It looks like Iran. Venezuela's always a possibility, waiting for a pretext.

                              Both parties can agree on only one thing, the need for the next war, they already have three candidates, the third, has nukes.

                              The bloated military is a jobs program, national socialism, corporate welfare.

                                  Trump backs push for Bible classes in schools

                                  By Camilo Montoya-Galvez

                                  President Trump appeared to endorse efforts by legislators in several states to allow public schools to offer Bible classes.

                                  "Numerous states introducing Bible Literacy classes, giving students the option of studying the Bible. Starting to make a turn back? Great!" Mr. Trump tweeted Monday morning after "Fox and Friends" ran a segment on the topic.

                                  Christian lawmakers in six Republican-controlled state legislatures across the country are pushing for legislation that would allow public schools to offer elective classes on the New and Old Testaments.

                                  The push by conservative legislators in Florida, Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Virginia and West Virginia has stirred some controversy. Critics of the proposals, including the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), argue that public school classes on the Bible would jeopardize the separation of church and state enshrined in the First Amendment to the Constitution.

                                  Alabama, Iowa and West Virginia have also considered Bible literacy bills, but all of the measures were voted down, according to the Fox News report.

                                  But in Kentucky, Republican Gov. Matt Bevin signed legislation in 2017 to allow public school students to take Bible and Hebrew scriptures classes. A year ago, in January 2018, the ACLU of Kentucky expressed concern to the Kentucky Board of Education after an Open Records Act investigation found that many courses violated constitutional requirements that say that religious texts used in classrooms must be secular, objective and not promote any specific religious view.

                                  The ACLU said it found "public school teachers using the Bible to impart religious life lessons" and use of Sunday school lessons and worksheets for source material. These are not academic approaches to objective study of the Bible and its historical or literary value, the ACLU pointed out.

                                  In June 2018, the Kentucky Board of Education approved standards for the classes, but the ACLU was still worried about what was being taught in Bible literacy courses.

                                  "Without more specific guidance, we fear some classrooms will once again be filled with preaching, not teaching," the organization wrote in a statement last August. "The ACLU-KY reminds students and parents that 'Bible Literacy' courses may not promote religion or a particular religious viewpoint, test students on matters of religious faith, nor be designed to instill religious life lessons."

                                  "Religious education is best left to parents and churches, not school or government," the ACLU added.

                                  Evangelicals and other Christian groups were an integral part of the president's electoral coalition during the 2016 election and have largely remained supportive of his administration — particularly because of his stance on social issues like LGBT rights and abortion, and his appointment of conservative judges to the Supreme Court.

                                      Why Doesn't Mitch McConnell care about election interference?

                                      McConnell's Move To Corrupt Vital Defense Industries:

                                      During WW2,and for years after, American kids were part of a desperate effort to salvage aluminum: they gathered little bits of litter from sidewalks - chewing gum wrappers - and painstakingly separated the thin layers of paper and aluminum. We had to have aluminum to defend ourselves: without it we can't fly, or make war. You carried a little ball of aluminum in your pocket.

                                      Aluminum is our most vital metal. There's no denying the usefulness of vanadium, and the seriousness of that crisis. Nor the value of titanium. But, no aluminum is as good as the Stone Age.

                                      Mitch McConnell has enabled a Russian oligarch, an aluminum tycoon, to make a major by-in into the American aluminum industry. The same Russian oligarch named in the Mueller Investigation; and the same oligarch who was under financial sanctions by the United States government for financial crimes, and suspected of interfering in our elections - not even a year ago.

                                      Mitch wants this nightmare to sit on the board of a major aluminum producer right here in America, in Kentucky. Smack dab in the middle of an industry vital to military and high-tech industry. How is it possible that the leaders of this country have become so stupid? Mitch McConnell needs to be seen as a threat to national security. He's an out of control psychotic into self-harm. And, he's unconscionably changing the Constitution every day.

                                      Let me ask the almost primal question: do you trust a man who sleeps with the devil? If McConnell works with blackmailers and extortionists, then how do we know that he is not being blackmailed? If he works with election hackers, then how do we know where and when he condones hacking? If McConnell supports Russian billionaires exercising control in vital defense industries, then where does that stop?

                                      What gets me is how anyone who calls themselves a Republican can support allowing a Russian oligarch to sit on the Board of a corporation that is part of a vital defense industry. Now that's psychotic! I doubt that they can even recognize themselves in the mirror in the morning.

                                          The entire video. All of it. It's what makes candidates like Biden think they are impervious to scrunity about what it is they did and what it is they designed and sponsored with their name on the bill, even when decades later, President Clinton admits he never shoulda signed this bill into law. What was the intent of this - to keep white Americans safer. To necessarily represent violence against women - when that provision could have and SHOULD have been offered up for legislative addressing - by not attaching it to this very really flawed bill?

                                          Young Turks schools Americans no holds barred. And it is critical viewing. No doubt white supremist Strom Thurmond was all for this bill he and Biden co-sponsored. But Biden....no repentence today? None. Even Bernie Sanders defines what it is about this bill that was supportable and what is not. Heck -Bill Clinton and Bernie Sanders are clear on that. Joe Biden - however - the designer of this - isn't transparent or clear at all. Or accountable.
