White Supremacists HAVE NO PLACE IN THE U.S./George Floyd Protests

There have been protests globally in support for justice for George Floyd's lynching by Derek Chauvin and the Black Lives Matter Movement. These are in concert with the BLM protests in every state in the U.S. This represents a critical mass against white supremacy (groups lifting up white nationalism, the KKK, the Neo Nazis). Considering that the protests by millions of people have been peaceful, by default the violence that broke out in various cities in the U.S. to disrupt the protests, represents hatred, criminality and cruelty.

Hatred/fear, brutality and criminality are the historical fruits of slavery, colonialism and the wretched aftermath of centuries of discrimination: kidnapping, oppression of ownership of humans, beatings and killings, rape and horrific conditions on plantations while whites lived in luxury. Above all was the separation of children from their parents during slave auctions. The tradition has stained this nation for centuries; the U.S. has never been great as a result.

Perhaps these protests represent the beginning of a long awakening of our society to the horror of institutional genocide (in healthcare, the justice system, the education system). And they should cut at consumerism, which relies on the mass brainwashing through fascist/white supremacist advertising, social oppression and appearance shaming for profit, a sub rosa uplifting of the perfection of white against the inferiority of black, brown and indigenous people.

The hatred and violence that is white on black/brown/Native American, comes largely from the U.S. history of slavery, abuse, violence, murder. The same can be said for Western Civilization colonialism which infected practically every nation on the earth.

Finally, like a boil, the George Floyd lynching has sliced open the pustule of white supremacy and the brutality toward colored races. The stench is overwhelming; the wound must be cleaned out. And oppression by white men (purchased by the rich) over colored nations and women will not be tolerated institutionally.

The police brutality on display during the protests is finally being addressed by police departments Attorneys General in various blue states. The critical mass will encompass red states. The House has written a federal law which nationalizes police reforms that will save lives and would have saved the lives of Breonna Taylor who was killed because of a no-knock warrant, and George Fl who was killed by Derek Chauvin's 8 minute chokehold.

This nation and our allies across the globe are protesting to insure that justice be served and reforms be instituted so that murders like George Floyd's, Michael Brown's, Travyon Martin's and countless others never happen again. And if they do, justice be swift,k equitable and righteous under the law. The House Bill for reforms must be passed by the Senate. The White Supremacist Mitch McConnell must sign the bill into law or forever expose himself and his Red State senators as White Nationalists who have no place in our capital, and liars who swear to uphold their oath to the constitution, then don't. What constitution are they swearing on? The constitution of the CONFEDERACY?

Enough is enough. If Mitch McConnell doesn't get the Red State senators on board to sign the bill, the handwriting is on the wall. They will be voted out with the White Nationalist in the "White House" in November 2020, despite Georgia Senator Kemp's attempt to disenfranchise whole counties of black voters with the gaslighting ruse of new voting machines which somehow don't work.

IN AUSTRALIA

There have been arguments in defense of the recent police brutality. Arguments have been made against George Floyd- he was a criminal and Chauvin feared for his life. Arguments have been made supporting the legality of the no-knock warrant which ended up in the death of Brianna Taylor. However, these arguments are typical white supremacist gaslighting. And the U.S. populace is not buying it.

They recognize that it is just like the gaslighting by the Minneapolis corner who was pressured by the DA to find George Floyd had drugs in his system which caused his death along with some underlying issues. The very idea that the truth should so be obscured represents white supremacy and unequal justice under oppression. White males in power cover up and protect one of their own against the powerless black "criminal" to escape punishment and to walk with impunity between the raindrops. That way, they can kill again.

Such killings are reminiscent of those by man-eating tigers who, once they taste the flesh and blood of human beings, savor the taste and go for more kills. Human predators are the same. And they have had free reign in our police departments, whose warrior/soldier mentality has destroyed their humanity and wrecked their mission to be peace officers, a quaint notion that has never really pertained in reality. Does this apply to all police? No. But if even one cop is a killer on a police force, it is one too many and most probably, his "kill" will be a black man or as in the case of Sandra Bland, a black woman.

IN GREECE

The Floyd family got their own investigator (the same one as the family of Eric Garner) and an autopsy was done. The report showed George Floyd died of asphyxiation. With breaking news today, since Chauvin and Floyd knew one another and there was friction between them as witnessed by the owner of the club where both worked, Chauvin will probably get Murder 1. Considering that Chauvin choked Floyd for 8 minutes and strangled the breath out of him while his police buddies let him, the act was a premeditation. He watched the man die when he should have been saving him. Instead of stopping when George Floyd pleaded for his life and warned he couldn't breathe, Chauvin went on and on. How long can you hold your breath under water before you feel like you're drowning and then drown?

IN MEXICO

The protests which have continued for 13 days nationwide, joined by New Zealand, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Ghana, Australia, Canada, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Greece, the Greek Islands, Syria, Israel, most of the world (except Russia who bans protests). The effect of these global protests has been self-reflection in which the countries have decried their histories inundated with slavery and colonialism. Protestors have thrown down the statues of slavery merchants, colonialists and in the case of Belgium, the notorious abuser and tyrant King Leopold of Belgium who chopped off the hands of black enslaved who didn't produce their quota of rubber. On a dour note, Winston Churchill was decried for his racist remarks. It is a sign of the times when one must look to one's own past to see the villainy there and hopefully expurgate it and reform.

IN ITALY

But for some, reform, apologies and self-reflection are impossible. Donald Trump, the WH, William Barr, the GOP for example, are incapable of reform or of holding up citizens' rights spelled out in the constitution, despite swearing to their oaths of office. Trump has done the reverse with Barr's gaslighting assistance. He has thrown down the constitution following a Putin-like use of military force against U.S. citizens.

IN CANADA

Tearing gassing and rubber pepper bulleting peaceful protestors is not upholding the Bill of Rights to encourage peaceful protest for redress of grievances. For Trump who sees any disagreement with his policies or ideas as treason, of course, the protestors are scurrilous cockroaches. And initially afraid of them and hiding in a bunker (an incredible irony) he emerged in full coward's dress, backed by numbers of officers in riot gear and National Guard troops who bombed and disperse the crowd for his sacrosanct moment in front of St. John's church holding a Bible.

Vilified by former Republican military, the former presidents and Senator Mitt Romney who joined protestors later in the week to reveal he is NOT a Trumpist, one wonders if Trump got the message? No. He has yet to make a national statement of support in favor of the protestors and BLM. He has yet to condemn police brutality.

Donald J. Trump, a stable genius (courtesy of the website)

Instead, he has accused Martin Gugino, a 75-year old Catholic pacifist for tripping himself up and being a conspirator against Trump, a member of ANTIFA. Indeed, if you believe Trump's white supremacist inference the man purposely fell, and let loose a blood squib (used in films) to fake the seriousness of his fall and injuries at the hands of police. If that were true, the "fake" injuries would have been immediately exposed once Gugino was admitted to the hospital. Instead, Mr. Gugino was in critical condition in the ICU. Since then he is undergoing rehabilitation, but has brain injuries according to his doctor.

Trump has been condemned for this psychotic, hyperbolic comment. Everyone that is except #QAnon, the KKK, white nationalists and Neo Nazis online who are charged toward violence by the meme "ANTIFA" a group which does not exist and which the Russian military intel has used to inspire fake protests against it in previous years. Antifa is "anti-fascist" and against Trump. Considering the full meaning of the meme, the U.S. fight against Nazi Hitler's Germany was ANTIFA. Thus, by design, ANTIFA stands for the millions of people who are against white supremacist groups like the Neo Nazis, white nationalists and the KKK. Google Frank Figluizzi (former Assistant Director for Counterintelligence at the FBI) who has studied hate groups. Antifa is not among them. So if you hear the Trump/Barr dog whistles blow "Antifa," think white supremacist inciting meme.

The KKK is very active in Mitch McConnell's state of Kentucky (courtesy of the site)

Trump and Barr have used references to Antifa to incite to protest and violence. But it's not working. Nor did the white supremacist provocations to burn down black stores and businesses work to continue violence toward race war work. Immediately, there was clean up by protestors the next day as people united to rebuild. And the protests continued. White supremacy isn't working. There aren't enough white supremacists to go around. There are petitions to reinstate the KKK as a domestic terrorist organization. And surely Neo Nazi organizations and groups like Boogaloo Bois and Proud Boys are being put on notice. Their intent to begin a race war is not a dog that will hunt in 2020. They are white, male, violent. That is the only color that the vast numbers of Americans are NOT color blind to.

At the heart of their dumb philosophies rests the confederacy. The confederacy had to be kept alive by rich planters who stayed rich by having an enslaved work force. They brainwashed the poor whites to fight for them, though poor whites couldn't afford slaves and resented that the rich planters didn't fight in order to keep their plantations going. At the heart of the confederacy was the lie that Christianity mandated slavery. There was also an utter disregard for indigenous cultures and peoples. The following quote by Alexander Stephens, the Vice President of the confederacy states in a speech right before the Civil War what the Confederate States believed was the cornerstone of why the confederacy must secede.

Alexander Stephens of the confederacy lived a life of lies. (Wikipedia)

"Its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests upon the great truth, that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery—subordination to the superior race—is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth." (Alexander Stephens, VP of the failed confederacy)

The confederacy was a lie. It could not stand because the "new government" was based upon the lie that blacks are not equal to whites. It is a lie that negro inferiority is a "physical, philosophical, moral" truth. The truth which the social contract stands upon is that all human beings (regardless of gender, race, religion) have inalienable rights. Our constitution is supposed to protect the rights of each citizen of the U.S. Then and now, the assertion that one group is racially inferior to another is a lie and cannot stand ever. Interestingly, every culture that attempts to by force and oppression assert that genocidal argument ends up falling and being destroyed by itself. 

William Barr has blown the dog whistle "Antifa" to demean protestors (courtesy of the site)

Thus, all remnants of a destroyed government shall not be uplifted. The confederate flag chic is not chic. It is a failure and a lie. We don't uplift failures and lies. To do so is preserving an immoral, wrong philosophy. It is patently stupid, as stupid and criminally negligent as saying COVID 19 is a hoax.

if you are a white man in black garb with an AR-15 and you are not active military in a country in Africa, but are on the streets of America? You are a terrorist. You are a racist. You are a white supremacist and you are most probably AN ALWAYS TRUMPER and supporter of #QAnon and JFK Jr. becoming Trump's Vice President. (google some of the insanities this group posits...it's probably promoted by Russian military intel).

Being a card carrying member of the KKK or neo Nazi or any hate group is Un-American. Since when is domestic terrorism American? Since when is hate speech at the point of a gun peaceful protest? Since when is violence against any American peaceful protest? The confederacy was a lie in 1866 (the end of the Civil War). And the confederate flag and what it stands for, domestic terrorism against Americans, is worse than a lie: it is an active threat against this country and the constitution. It is the antithesis of patriotism. And white supremacy is against the constitution.

Do these uphold the constitution or the white supremacist president? (courtesy of the site)

If you are active military and are ordered to tear gas and rubber bullet peaceful protestors who have a right to redress their grievances, you should resign. "I'll lose my job." Yes. But is that a job? Or are you a slave to a philosophy that is against the oath you took in your role in the military? Resign or be a coward and traitor to the U.S. constitution.

It is about time the white privileged feel the heat of shame and guilt. Maybe they will grow up. The protestors have nothing to lose. They have already lost their lives to white supremacists in the police force and on the streets of this nation. White supremacist violence has no place in our culture. Women and the LGBT community are on board with color blindness. And there is only one color the world is now recognizing; white supremacist violence by males. The "whole world is watching" for each other's back against ultra conservative right wing groups which uphold violence and brutality out of some lurid assertions that they are superior. Since when are psychoses superior?

Trump and all the white supremacists in his administration and those in the GOP who do not uphold the constitution out of loyalty to Trump are domestic terrorists. Enough is enough.

White Supremacist President Trump Has no Place In THE WHITE HOUSE



The Whited Wall surrounding the White House, Protest Signs and a future president give it meaning (courtesy of the site)
White supremacy is nothing new in our nation. What is new is a president who upholds racism and white supremacy in a public show of pretentious force. And it is new when our country has lived through racially based crises each generation since the Civil War and Reconstruction and the current administration uplifts RACISM, pushing us back to the "good ole days." Throughout Trump's presidency, he has condoned and enabled white supremacists to rise without decrying or criticizing such behavior. With this administration everything is MAGA.

The Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo has inferred that the United States was never really "great," considering its history of racism, discrimination against ethnic groups, women and LGBT communities; and its imperialism and genocide of Indigenous Peoples and more. Trump's very program of MAGA is white supremacist. It obviates the history of oppression and lifts up the preeminence of the white male for being loathsome, indecent and predatory. Such a concept is demeaning to every US citizen and the constitution. It is the crux of why Donald Trump is in the WH with the help of a chief white supremacist, Vladimir Putin.

Proof of Trump's enduring white supremacist notions goes back to his grandfather who was a whoremonger and preyed upon women, then his father who was a racist and supporter of the U.S. Nazi movement in the 1920s. Today, it resides in Trump's appointing a staff member like Steven Miller who is the voice behind the Muslim ban, the immigrant bans and the Southern Border cages where migrants are placed and whose children have been displaced and cruelly separated from parents for months. White supremacists have determined Trump's base. One has only to look online for evidence of this during the years of his presidency.

After Trump's inauguration, the KKK and David Duke had a celebratory march. Other such marches followed around the country. Trump welcomed them and roiled up the white supremacists in his rallies. These have been enabled by Trump. And they have continued their support of themselves and their cause (replete with neo Nazi and Confederate flags) with marches like the one in Charlottesville, Va. where chants of "Jews will not replace us," and the Nazi slogan "blood and soil" identified their fascist beliefs. Make no mistake. These groups hate people of color, the LGBT community, the #MeToo Movement and religions that are not a fragmented and twisted Christianity.

Domestic terrorists like Dylann Roof responsible for the 2015 massacre at a black church have been on watchlists. But since Trumpism, the active designation of white supremacists as terrorists has been obscured. Christopher Wray head of the FBI to his credit has stood up to Trump attacks. Nevertheless,  hate groups have been given a pass by Trump's rhetoric and his refusal to decry racism and anti-semitic groups like the KKK, the Proud Boys, Daily Stormer, Breitbart (which helped to get him elected) and many more including @QAnon.

Using elements of racism and discrimination, Fox News, The New York Post and other news organizations and groups, have at their foundation, core values that oppose the constitution and amendments (that uphold equality and due process under the law for every citizen). Toward anti-American, domestic, terrorist hate groups, Trump has been silent. On the other hand all former presidents from President George Bush Jr.k to Jimmy Carter as well as former Republicans have spoken against these groups and Trump's position, especially after the march and death of Heather Heyer during the Charlottesville, Va. march of white nationalists.

R Acknowledging Trump's criminal negligence in losing so many lives on his watch during the COVID-19 pandemic, many of which have been black and Hispanic, due to economic institutional racism and injustice, U.S. citizens young and old are enraged. The breaking point of George Floyd's lynching has created a turning point. Is it any wonder that the situation has been completely exposed under this president who cares so little for American taxpayers save his wealthy supporters? As for his white supremacist base? He tickles their ears with his jokes, but leaves them in the dust when distributing tax dollars to improve their economic situation which is predominately middle and lower middle class.

Only the wealthy need apply when it comes to the Trumptocracy. It is an irony that the white supremacy which he refused to condemn became unleashed in a wave of police brutality that not even the wealthy white supremacists can overcome with lies. Trumpism is imploding of its own inner rot as I write this. The whole world is watching and joining in protest, and the globe groans with the weight of his incompetence. That, his inequities and iniquities choke off our breath, as does COVID or the knee of red neck discrimination favoring the wealthy over everyone else.

Trump administration and GOP gaslighting keeps racism and discrimination from accurately reporting COVID 19 deaths and POLICE BRUTALIZATION deaths. All is well in TRUMPLAND. See https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/voices/george-floyds-autopsy-and-the-structural-gaslighting-of-america/

The Black Lives Matter peaceful protests were a long time coming. It is fitting they should explode into the sunlight with this unjust, tyrannical president. The press which has grown increasingly conservative propped up by editorialists like The New York Times' recently resigned James Bennet have done little in the way of investigative journalism to ameliorate the injustices of Trumpism.

Most news organizations have willfully fallen down on their mission to spotlight police brutality. Apparently, it has been unproductive to focus on the massive systemic corruption in American institutions: educational, justice, housing. Articles have appeared by concerned journalists. However they have been a sop extinguished by conservative media both online and televised who refuse to deal with the black experience in America. Trump has drained the lifeblood of a free press by dominating it with his lies, fleshly rhetoric, rants and accusatory victimizations. He has made the nation into a mental institution, a Bedlam, where he unleashes his psychosis and we are left to cringe at his insanities and inanities. To avoid listening to his diatribes and mendacities, many pull the "blanket" of avoidance over their heads. Many were driven to escape into media land distractions, live entertainment, movies, live sports...until the pandemic shut everything down. Woe and hell for the red necks who don't read.

Swelled by Trumpism's brainlessness and wantonness, the media for the most part has obscured difficult and complicated issues which Social media groups attempt to bring to the fore in an election year.

Where there have been gaps, everyday citizens fill in the spaces bravely. With their phone cameras, they are the investigative journalists in real time. The tell-tale George Floyd lynching is the case in point. For the young and the old who have been intentionally obtuse and occupied with their own mess, this has been an eye opening horror. For the 1960s protestors and marchers, it has been a reminder that racism dies hard, lynching is alive and well in the US and injustice in our "glorious" institutions continues to the point that all of us are being smothered by it. We are reeling from the stench and toxicity of poisoned gas coming from the mouth and behind of a criminal president and his lackeys, chief of which William Barr is perhaps the most hideous.

DOJ William Barr is in lock step with Trump obeying his every wish regardless of its legality (courtesy of the CBS)
The mass protests which white supremacists attempted to stop with chaos-burnings and destruction of property- followed by the admonitions of Trump that the protests were either illegal or generated by "Antifa," continue. The peaceful protests are legal. The destruction of property is criminal. The politicized fear spreading by white supremacists is also inciting to riot. The separation between criminal behavior and peaceful protest is a schism. It will be made clear to what extent the destruction and burning of black businesses was effected by white supremacists whose hatred was unleashed at an opportune time.

Barr and Trump blamed Antifa (antifascist) which as Frank Figluizzi (former Assistant Director of Counterintelligence a the FBI) states is a group which isn't even organized and is merely a handle for anyone who is against fascism, meaning against Trumpism.  Blaming this non existent group gives Trump the legitimacy to militarize and weaponize the situation.

Evidence of this is clear. He ordered military troops to use tear gas and rubber bullets to break up a peaceful protest so he could stand with a Bible for his photo op. How he got to this position is humorous. He had to come out looking "strong and brave" after news reports that he wussied out hiding in the WH bunker in fear, as protestors marched outside the WH. He recoiled instead of encouraging their peaceful advocacy against the murder of George Floyd by white supremacist police. His cowardice to hide, as his cowardice to get out of the Viet Nam War by pleading "bone spurs," is typical. Meanwhile, in the aftermath, people place signs and placards around the fence that Trump had built around the WH to wall him in from the American people. He is a creature of walls, of paranoia, of fear. He would spread it when it is convenient: "Antifa" vs. opening up the country to contract COVID 19 so he can boast of a "great" economy for MAGA. His gaslighting is toxic; the "I can't breathe" meme fitting.

Jim Clyburn House Rep. D speaks on CBS about the protests

His photo op backfired with the country and the protests continue, followed by the outcry by American congressmen, mayors, governors in leadership: Andrew Cuomo (NY gov), Nancy Pelosi (Cal. D) James Clyburn (SC-D) and countless others. Of course, the Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden continues to speak out as do former presidents Barack Obama, George Bush Jr., Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.

Their raised voices and the voices of peaceful protestors who march chanting "Black Lives Matter" have reached to the heavens. The Pope and other global leaders have come out decrying racism, joining in the chorus to petition for systemic change. Surely, God has heard. If you believe in "freedom and justice for all," tenets espoused by Christ and upheld in the Magna Carta, constitutional amendments, the Torah (in the ten commandments) and other religious belief systems, then followers of Christianity, Judaism, indeed every religion practiced around the world, should support the movement for equality. It is a movement which represents that all should be entitled to equal justice under the law, especially multicultural groups. One should not have to fear being lynched or abused/predatorized for not being a white male.

Trump, Trumpism, the Trumptocracy, including white evangelicals and white supremacists that support it are on notice. Though Trump doesn't say it, events of the past weeks have clarified the situation for American taxpayers. Far be it from Trump to condemn himself and his base of white supremacist, neo Nazi, KKK supporters. And as these groups breathe the Trumpy air in our nation, so does Mitch McConnell, Republican Senator from Kentucky and Lindsey Graham Republican House member from South Carolina support this toxicity. The money blinds them. Their eyes too have not been opened as many white independent voters' eyes have been opened. If they honored their positions and the US taxpayer, they would, like Oedipus, pluck out their eyes in accepting the truth. They cannot, will not, they refuse: unwise accomplices to murder by COVID 19 and the maintenance of a wicked maladministration.

They and other Americans must acknowledge what black, Latinex (some, not all) Native American, Muslim, and other multicultural groups have recognized with Trumpism. The one who is in the position of the presidency of the U.S. has attained that seat of power, fraudulently with Putin's help. Trump negligence has caused harm, death and destruction. He is a white supremacist and egoist. Neither are acceptable in the executive branch of the government, what is left of it, as there are few checks and balances left except for the lower courts and Sovereign Nation States' Rights.

The truth has been exposed. Evangelical Christianity has been subsumed under the rubric of white supremacy. Jerry Falwell Jr., Franklin Graham Jr. and others refuse to denounce the lynching of George Floyd. They refuse to denounce Trump's blasphemy of holding the Bible. That act alone is evidence of his "law and order" (a misnomer if ever there was one) tear gassing peaceful protestors and shredding the first amendment for a photo op. Likewise, the  GOP refuses to denounce the abrogation of the constitution and the abuse of power in using military force against the public, a contravention of our national laws. We must conclude they are white supremacists. We must open our eyes to the ugliness. And we must not allow this to continue. Trump and his administration must go, the sooner the better.

“At first I thought I should just shut up and listen to black people about this issue. But why would I do that? It’s not their problem, it’s mine," Banksy's Instagram page, The Guardian.

Trump is a FAKE NEWS FACTORY

ABC Facebook page
What does Trump refer to when he claims the fake news treats him unfairly?

Trump is always the prime subject of Mainstream Media (MSM). Broadcasting outlets allow Trump to dominate the news cycle, especially during his COVID-19 campaign rallies or announcements. There is little investigative reporting or fact checking with exceptions by WaPo, MSNBC, CNN, The Boston Globe, The Guardian (UK) and other less prestigious media sites around the country.

So one can only think that when Trump refers to fake news, he is referring to himself. Yes, Donald J. Trump! You are your own fake news cycle. By your own assertions, you continually make yourself look uneducated, indecent, arrogant unforgiving, defensive, paranoid, humorless, stupid and classless. Actually, the descriptor list is endless in the negative.

Because Trump is historically, a criminal fraud, we can look back and understand that during the 2016 campaign, Trump morphed his own universe to transform normalcy into a George Orwell-like 1984 world that is Trumpland. In Trumpland black is white, truth is a lie, green is yellow and the "true" narrative which is fraud is what spills from Trump's mouth. You must fact check it or be propagandized. The MSM must fact check Trump with everything all the time. If Trump is somewhere, he lies everywhere. And his lies and frauds must be challenged all the time.
(courtesy of the site)
During the 2016 election cycle on RT, Fox News, PBS, New York Times, Breitbart, Sputnik, Pravda, Rush Limbaugh's podcasts, Daily Stormer and other right wing media, the transformation of truth becoming a lie was promoted exponentially on Social Media by Russian Military Intelligence bots clicking from a Troll Farm in St. Petersburg. There were 13 organizations, thousands of operatives the Mueller Report noted. Since Putin hates Hillary Clinton, God forbid she should win. Putin wanted to make good on his billions in Quid Pro Quos to Trump washing funds through Deutsch Bank and Cyprus Bank. Trump had to win and MSM was duped as a part of the 8 pronged strategy to get Trump elected. The same strategies are being attempted by the RNC to date. But Trump's is about to go down for the count because as James Carville Democrat who ran the Clinton campaign has said: no one wants Trump back. They don't trust him to keep Americans alive during the fight with COVID.

Segue back to MSM (mainstream media).

Not to be left out of revenue gathering in 2016, MSM gradually slid into Trumpland values and memes. Trump's controversial statements on clips (pussy tape, Russia if you're listening, lock her up) fell in the same category of fake news lying media Fox. But the nightmare was that NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, the NYT and other apparently "reputable" news media reported his statements giving them the patina of truth. After all, would the NYT be responsible for reporting lies? Of course. They got caught at it numerous times without fact checking. However, by the time they corrected themselves it was 10 days later and the corrections were on p. 25 in tiny print. Their editors are predominately conservative; their Op Ed page accepts liars who smeared Clinton and Biden. They don't fact check and they discriminate and use the pretense of "all the news that's fit to print," except when it isn't.

(courtesy of the MSNBC FB site)
Thus, after he became president, Trump was his own fake media source turned mainstream.   From the power of the presidential seat, by virtue of the mantle conferred upon him, whether he was suited to it or not, Trump was mainstreamed. DONALD TRUMP'S LIES ARE MAINSTREAM MEDIA presentations. They are not fact checked and in this Pandemic of COVID-19, you listen to them at your own peril. Thank goodness for MSNBC, CNN, WaPo, The New Yorker, Buzzfeed, NPR, Politico, The Boston Globe, and others who have held Trump to account. If you are not reading or listening/watching to these outlets, do so. Save your life. From Trump's FAKES.

Regardless of whether the MSM media wanted to or not, they were forced to cover him because they helped elect him. Things got serious really fast and the MSM was chided and pushed around by Trump if the coverage was unflattering. Only CNN, WaPo and MSNBC wore his criticisms as a badge of honor. The other news sites whined and their editors changed up the narrative to suit Trump. Those editors should be fired for their lack of journalistic integrity.

(courtesy of the site)
By the time they started fact checking Trump's lies, the FBI had been through the crucible, the Pandemic Office had been closed, and the Mueller Report and investigation were invisible. Only the truth seekers, MSNBC, CNN, WaPo, The Boston Globe and the others mentioned stood firm in reporting facts and daring to hold Trump accountable. The other news sources were Trump media, fake news sites compromising their integrity to hold Trump accountable in their lukewarm reporting. If a reporter from their organizations dared to ask him an embarrassing question or ask any of his lackeys an embarrassing question, they were dunned as fake. Thus, MSM gradually was cowed into reflecting Trumpism to be "truthful." Lies became truth, truth lies.

By the time the media had been excoriated by the truth seekers, pundits, journalism professors etc., they woke up. It was too late. Meanwhile, the media truth seekers, fueled by comedy shows, i.e. The Colbert Report, SNL, Bill Maher, etc. showed camera clips and repeated Trump's outrageous gaffs (numbering by now in the hundreds if you count his tweets) and 20,000 lies fact checking them. Trump responded and eventually there was no one to head up the WH Press Secretary while Trump's fake news operation in tandem with MSM fake news soldiered on.

Trump's Under-reported Outlandishness Connecting 2017 to 2020

One of Trump's first outlandish statements was at his Inauguration Speech when he talked about the slaughterhouse he inherited from Obama. (a strange projection of future events which he created when he closed down the Pandemic Office and fired its personnel in 2018 delivering the US into the epicenter of death and destruction.)

In one fell prophesy, he said it all, though no one understood what he was talking about and neither did he. He was intentionally mischaracterizing the Obama White House. There is an irony to this blatant lie. Here we are at 100,000 deaths (red states not reporting accurately). The US is a COVID-19 slaughterhouse. Many have died in our nation's slaughterhouses-meat packing plants. Thus, Trump has prophesied upon his own head and his administration the worst legacy of a US president, turning the country into a slaughterhouse. By ignoring rapid action to stem COVID-19, his failure continues to this day with no national response which is the mandate of the president: the use of his executive powers to keep Americans safe. Instead, it is the blue state governors who have kept Americans safe.

The media whores promoted Trump and the GOP in a chauvinistic, discriminatory, self-aggrandizing knock-down, making sure Hillary Clinton and Democrats would not receive continual free coverage. Trump, knowing the importance of free coverage for branding his image, unfairly took advantage of this and the MSM supported his endeavors, helping to elect him. They must not do the same thing again with Biden. But comments by friends who are not on Social Media indicate that once again Trump's FAKE MSM news cycle covers him without properly committing to investigative journalism and fact checking.

And at times they select clips of VP Biden that are not decisive and  positive, clues that they are part of the Trump fake media. Biden receives sops while Trump is made to appear presidential and cogent. That is an example of MSM FAKE NEWS. If you count Trump's gaffs and his injunctions to take a dangerous drug hydroxycholorquine, to inject Lysol, to drink bleach, Trump finger pointing at Biden is laughable.

Indeed, if one is a never Trumper, then one should turn off the broadcasts of his speeches or rallies that are filled with his lying assertions and craven misrepresentations to aggrandize himself. I can't stand to hear him. He is a stain on this nation every time he opens his mouth to spread his viral lies.

As for Hillary Clinton, it must be noted that her courage was legion as she sustained Trump's criminality and the collaborative infamy and pompous, self-righteous public trashing by craven Democratic males with influential audiences, i.e. Bill Maher and Michael Moore. In bitterness, they blamed her and her campaign for losing to Trump. Too bad their simple analysis didn't call down complicated 8 pronged RNC strategies to bring in Trump as president, using Putin's Intel, Cambridge Analytica, Kushner's quid pro quos with FB, the hacking of ballots in 50 states, Jill Stein's candidacy to split votes form Hillary and more.

The RNC needed to garner billions in tax cuts for its donors as insurance to maintain the power Citizen's United gave the rich. Media Companies benefited. Folks thought when Trump said fake news, he was referring to the conglomerates like ABC, CBS, etc. He wasn't. He was referring to all media that fact checked him. Naturally, the conglomerates donated to his campaigns; they opposed Net Neutrality. But they were loathe to fact check his lies for fear of being Trump attacked as fake.

Thus MSM became Trump media like Fox. Interestingly, what was described as Alt Right like Breitbart was also Trump media. Thus Trump media, became lying Trump media as he laid down the gauntlet and MSM followed him like a dog. In the minds of many, MSM made Trump's lies truth. They contributed to the propaganda Trump disseminated. The GOP 2016 win must be laid at the feet of MSM. It must not happen again.

For example, the MSM didn't show video clips of Hillary half as often as they did Trump who managed to be as controversial as possible in click baits which the MSM scarfed up. Despite the illegality of predominately following one candidate, Trump's outrageous statements were useful and that is why he made such comments in a conspiracy with Putin, our virtual adversary we war with today (covered up by the MSM). Thus, MSM and "alternate media" (this is a misnomer-it is smaller segments of Trump media) "covering" Trump lies was promoted by Soc Puppets and Troll Farms set up by Russian Military Intel on Social Media 24/7. The effective campaigning by a foreign adversary, Vlad Putin, to put in his favorite candidate usurped the electoral process of the U.S. Indeed, taxpayers' votes were hacked and Hillary's vote was split by Putin funded American candidate Jill Stein.

To date, though Robert Mueller in his investigation and the Mueller Report attempted to Trump, Putin, the RNC and this White House accountable, because of the corrupt DOJ-Barr and Trump's lawyers, Trump was never impeached as the Mueller Report demanded. Instead. Trump has used his executive powers to stop justice and attempt to prosecute his enemies, Mussolini-style. He has not used his massive executive powers to keep Americans safe by employing the D.P.A. with the military and a quartermaster to gear up equitable cost-saving contracts for testing, PPE supply and distribution chains and tracing to fight against the spread of COVID-19's. (see prior posts on this site)

 COVID-19

Meanwhile, the American taxpayer is now facing the greatest risk in US history in a pandemic which the incompetent, criminal Trump can't handle, except to put Project Airbridge in control which thus far through his son-in-law Jared Kushner et. al. is bilking the American public going on upwards of $1 billion dollars according to reporting by John Allan whom I've heard on MSNBC 5/25/2020.

How the Trump administration contracted for inefficient mask sterilization machines that sterilize for under the time they stated is criminal considering there are people who have lost their jobs and are on food bank lines. Indeed, such inefficiency appears to be malfeasance as the company gave one price, $1 million per machine then used bait and switch charging $7 million per machine. Kickbacks? Cronyism? Quid pro Quos? All of it is theft of the American taxpayer by Donald Trump and Jared Kushner who have benefited from our tax dollar but who refuse to pay cops and fire and nurses by funding the 50 states for keeping Americans alive through COVID.

To the thinking American taxpayer who would discern truth from a lie, Donald Trump as his own mainstream media factory is obvious. But it is the pandemic that has outted his criminality, fraud, lies and psychosis like nothing ever before. All the news channels slavishly followed his COVID-19 rallies which grew increasingly craven, insane and frightening. It is a record of infamy in how a president must not deal with a Pandemic. In one example Trump brought his donors, big box retailers and corporations in front of the camera to tell how they were making PPE. Some of them were ill-equipped to do so.

Later we learned that companies who were not Trump donors offered their services but were snubbed by Trump. They were in the business of making PPE and equipment like ventilators? Yes. This is graft on a massive scale. Who reported this?  THE TRUTH SEEKING NEWS SITES.

Now, we understand why Trump cannot employ the DPA with full force and task the military or a quartermaster and his team to research the companies most aligned to make the equipment and gear up to scale with massive production. They would be loyal to the US constitution and the American taxpayers, not Trump's graft making, cronyism, kick-back, quid pro quo machine. Once again, American taxpayers are paying the bill to be killed on a massive scale while Trump's "incompetence" is made fun of. Incompetent? Hardly. When there's money to be made, the Kushner / Trump family is always at the ready.What importance do the American taxpayers have to them? None.

Hiding in plain sight, it looks like one thing but is another-duping mimicry a defense (courtesy of the site)
Meanwhile, where are the truth seeking investigative journalists reporting this? They are out there and can be found on the usual suspects: MSNBC, CNN, WaPo, etc. Their reporters in the field resort to extremely thoughtful questioning that nails Trump to his lies before the world. Their teams investigate and pull back the cover-ups. Some reporters questioning Trump are excellent. Often they are black and female. Though he attempts not to answer their questions, he falters and eventually must answer if they persist or he will look like the racist chauvinist he is.

When these reporters strike it hot, he retorts with "that's a nasty question," that's a rude question," "you are fake news." Only then do you understand their probes hold a great truth that Trump is forced to cover up with an epithet of "fake news" or "nasty." Thus, you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this question is real, it points to facts, Trump has choked on it and his fake news propaganda machine has seized up. At such instances Trump has walked out and has taken a few days to recover. Watch for those moments; they have happened more and more as he attempts to cover-over his failed response to the pandemic which is exceeding 100,000 deaths as I write this. (red state reports and deaths are invisible regarding nursing homes and are largely inaccurate)

But for these rich kernels of fact and truth brought up by Trump's furious response to questions by the "nasty, fake news" reporters, Trump has rendered his broadcasts in all media largely an occasion for fraud and lie spreading. The irony is that Trump, by calling the media fake, is identifying himself as the fake.

Discovering the Fake From the Real

But the only way one is apprised of this is by reading widely investigative news sites (blogs or other city papers, i.e. 'The Boston Globe') and then comparing to MSM FAKE NEWS, in other words Trump media. MSNBC, CNN, WaPo, curators are credible and excellent as investigative news sources which counter the fake MSM by revealing the truth behind Trump's lies.

BUZZFEED has excellent articles. Their article about the PEE PEE tape (which Trump called fake news) is accurate if you walk through Trump's inside relationship with Putin who hates the OBAMA, BIDEN, HILLARY TRIUMVIRATE for their work ousting Putin's corrupt crony in Ukraine. Biden and Clinton helped to establish that country's working elections and democracy. Putin will never forgive them and would kill them if he could; he did character assassinate Clinton, but that action has backfired.  Our eyes are open; the Mueller Report stands in history for all time.

And as I write this, Putin is working with the RNC and Kushner to drum up all sorts of attacks against Biden: witness the NYT Op Eds. about Biden being a weak candidate or hiding in the shadows...sourced by the RNC. The NYT editorial staff accepts RNC editorials but doesn't identify them as such. Well, there's the rub. This is part of the MSM Trump Fake News Cycle. Thus, I do not read the Times. I follow the journalist. Sometimes, the NYT trips up in spite of itself and publishes "all the news that's fit to print." However, its investigative journalism as a whole is pathetic. WaPo is head and shoulders above them. So is The New Yorker, CNN and MSNBC.

Mimicry-defense-pretending to be one thing when one is another (courtesy of the site)
Of course since to Trump, only his commentary is the truth, the exposure behind his commentary, he deems fake. This is key. Look for little truths when he ignores a question or does not answer it directly by responding with "fake news," or "nasty" or "rude" question. Then you know it is true and like all truth to a liar, it is embarrassing and humiliating and must be covered up and derided. He is hiding in plain sight which he does often to protect himself. A free person, a truthful person has nothing to hide.

Trump is the FAKE NEWS Fountain of mainstream media. He is a spokesperson for the malevolent GOP and they will, with the exception of Mitt Romney and a few others, fall on the sword for Trump, until in the last analysis Mitch has realized he has gone too far. By being a select spokesperson for the manufacturers of certain big pharma by pushing everything from dangerous non beneficial drugs to "his" vaccine, he has indicated his quid pro quo schemes and cronyism, malfeasance and criminal behavior. Perhaps the anti-vaxxers will accept the Trump vaccine. They certainly will not accept Fauci or Gates certified vaccines.

Like all liars and fakes, when they exceed their own excessive nature, they out themselves. COVID-19 is Trump's Waterloo. This Memorial Day he has outed himself and there will be no turning back. There is a new normal. And Trump will not be in it, nor will he be the MSM darling for much longer. He is an embarrassment to himself. It's only a matter of recognizing the fraud before the criminal's masochism demands it be held to account. So it will be with the criminal in the White House, his cronies and his accomplices in MSM.

Stockholm Syndrome: The GOP'S Addiction to Sweden's COVID-19 APPROACH


Stockholm, Sweden (courtesy of the site)

Seeking "herd immunity" without sheltering in, like that which Sweden implements, is one response to COVID-19. Splendid, thinks the GOP. This policy the GOP loves is that the virus, if allowed to spread without sheltering in, will eradicate COVID-19 because everyone gets it and develops antibodies which provide immunity. To what length of time the immunity lasts is not known and at what strength immunity comes is not known. However, the GOP makes its own distinction. In the GOP UNIVERSE, with their irrevocable and illimitable immunity, you won't get it ever again.

Without consideration, the GOP-style immunity sounds reasonable, right? People get sick and recover since the numbers show (at this point this is a projection and guestimated science-it might be higher or lower) 80% of the population will recover. We have around 330,000,000 in the US. If 20% of the population gets it and dies, that's only 66,000,000. The GOP have done the numbers. Better death than sheltering in; the GOP has been "STOCKHOLMED!"


Caveats. With COVID-19 don't really know if the 80%/20% figures are accurate, nor what immunity specifically means.

Is it true this virus morphs, changes and evolves based upon one's immune system? Perhaps. Expert scientists in the field have discovered rare syndromes developing in children: "toxic shock-like syndrome" resembling Kawasaki's disease. And they have seen that the initial symptoms of COVID-19 have broadened in the anecdotal  reporting of those who have tested positive, some recovering having never made it to the hospital. Many have died at home of strokes and heart attacks. The disease which began in China is perhaps a different strain than the one which traveled to NYC along the coast from Europe. The facts of the disease have changed as more becomes known. For example it has been found in waste water and in semen. In AIDS blood became a toxic substance. Does the same apply for COVID-19 in a positive, actively alive COVID ASYMPTOMATIC?

So, the roulette wheel of COVID-19 is expanding as I write this. Exactly how and why the disease is changing unclear; perhaps it is wise to state that it impacts individuals in a wide range of effects before and after one gets it, based upon their genetics and their overall health. And it appears that it leaves lingering effects. Unless one receives an anti-viral like Remdesivir, it takes a long time to recover. But there is too much unknown about this virus to be determinative. One must approximate and embrace the uncertainty principle: we must question what we "know" about this novel virus. One thing for sure. It is 10X more lethal than the flu and is incredibly contagious. Its transmission may be by "any means necessary," even to the rendering of some individuals asymptomatic to achieve, with stealth, a greater transmission and replication in humans.

With the current GOP support system of wealthy donors, corporate investors and owner,s and Wall Street, a non-working populace is NOT TO BE BROOKED. Are they going to pay unemployment insurance forever? ARE YOU INSANE? THEY WANT HERD IMMUNITY TO FUNCTION IN THEIR WORKERS AND THE CULTURE. Let's do it in the US just like in SWEDEN. In private circles the GOP has been pushing this from the beginning but Fauci and other scientists are not willing to allow leaders to "RIDE THIS BITCH TO THE BOTTOM."  

But the wealthy have STOCKHOLM SYNDROME. Fine. Let's review.

Stockholm, Sweden (courtesy of the site)
1) Do we have socialized medicine like Sweden?  No.
2)Do we have a high standard of living for the whole country, i.e. $35.00 an hour so waiters/waitresses don't need tips like they don't in Sweden? No.
3)Is there a Fox news and alternative media equivalent calling COVID-19 a HOAX in Sweden or spreading misinformation that this is just the flu? No.
4)Does the Swedish populace take the danger of COVID-19 seriously? Yes
5)Does the Swedish populace believe and follow the social contract and social responsibility? Yes.
6)Does the Swedish community respect and love the elderly to not spread the infection to them? Yes.
7)Is the Swedish community generous and caring, putting others first to not spread the infection? Yes
8)Are CEOs of Swedish corporations making up to 900X more than their workers? No
9)Does the Swedish populace care for the stress on healthcare workers, not to spread the infection? Yes.
10)Might Swedish hospitals be overcome, letting people with COVID-19 die in the hallways? No
11) Are Swedish hospitals and healthcare state of the art? Yes
12) Is their excellent healthcare system due to SOCIALIZED MEDICINE? Yes
13) Does the Swedish populace gather in crowds of 10 or more in Sweden? No
14) Does the government trust the Swedish people to understand not to spread the virus? Yes
15) Do the people trust the government to keep them safe, well informed and secure? Yes
16) Is there a great economic divide in Sweden of uber rich and poor? No 
17) Does the populace have enough to eat in Sweden? Yes
18)If they don't have enough to eat, can the Swedish people get help to improve their lot? Yes.
19)Does the Swedish populace get the best bang for their tax dollars to have a superior culture and high standard of living? Yes.
20) Is the high standard of living because there is financial equity and no great divide between rich and poor? Yes.
Stockholm, Sweden (courtesy of the site)
Say I want to strive for herd immunity as they accomplish it in Sweden, in other words be Swedishized.

Mitch McConnell will never allow it.
GOP and rich donors will never allow it.
For profit hospitals and insurance companies will NEVER allow Socialized Medicine.
The government has no intention of keeping the American taxpayer safe and secure economically.
The wealthy are exacerbating the economic divide between rich and poor, not decreasing it.

But why is the GOP pushing herd immunity in the US, when it has no intention of being SWEDEN?
They want to create the illusion that the idea will work to get us believe it. They wish to make us STOCKHOLMED.

So the results of trying to achieve herd immunity in the US will never be the same results as in Sweden?
No.

 Is it true that pushing the GOP UNIVERSE of herd immunity, "stockholming the public," indicates the GOP doesn't care if this protocol exacerbates death?
Yes.


What if the death toll in one year (it won't be over unless the virus is eradicated) is larger than WWII and the Civil War deaths over 4-5 year period? Will the GOP care then?
No
Stockholm, Sweden (courtesy of the site)
Will the GOP care if the death toll exceeds that of the Spanish Flu globally in 2 years?
No. 66,000,000 (20% of the population which is probably larger) exceeds the numbers who died from the Spanish Flu. There is no way to calculate the number dead even today since people have died at home of COVID-19 unable to get a test or get to the hospital in time.

So the rich who shelter in their mansions and have access to tests, drivers, limos, private planes, maids, cooks and other help and all the PPE they need will probably never get this virus?
The likelihood is very low. Tom Hanks and his wife are not in that category of rich.

So their bottom line is more important than Americans suffering and maybe 270,000,000 million Americans getting COVID-19?
Yes.


If Americans are asymptomatic, might they suffer the loss of loved ones infected by them if they don't take precaution at home when they return from a trip "outside"?
Of course. Massive testing must be done to gauge whether one is asymptomatic. Massive testing is not happening. It will not happen because the GOP and Trump have STOCKHOLM SYNDROME. And they want the American public to be "stockholmed."


Stockholm, Sweden (courtesy of the site)
If the GOP is "stockholming" the American people, what does that mean?
It is, with malice aforethought, slowing down an effective response to COVID-19 to "speed up" the herd immunity GOP style. The result is misery, death and desolution of the US as a democracy, something which Vladimir Putin looks forward to along with Trump's reelection.

Could COVID-19 be fought successfully avoiding stockholming?
Scaling up the DPA to provide PPE and 10 times the tests required for each person in every state in the US, or at least enough tests to adequately provide for everyone to be tested is necessary. Parallel to that, contact tracing if one gets it and quarantining all in that individual's sphere are necessary as the economy returns and people go "outside." At the least millions of tests and lab results should be executed and the results delivered daily. This is a war and a wartime economy against this virus should be engaged creating new jobs to people labs, factories making reagents, tests, masks, medical equipment and the infrastructure to support it in the future as more pandemics will arise.

Is there a tie-in with stockholming and the GOP and Democratic presidential election 2020? 
Of course. More Trump supporters, white supremacists, klansmen, Neo Nazis will die than educated Democrats, unless Democrats can be infected by them and die. More poor will die than Americans with means, a GOP assumption. Greater numbers of GOP voters will be stockholmed and resist protecting the rest of the culture around them by NOT wearing masks or social distancing, etc. STOCKHOLMING makes NOT wearing a mask a macho act and act of resistance. (ironically, in Sweden such action is anathema) So while GOP voters will inevitably die by the 80/20 percentages, they will infect Democrats who also will die by the 80/20%. This is a COVID-19 political warfare of hatred as Trumpists weaponize their inhumanity. The GOP leaders will make sure not to be anywhere in the vicinity of protests against sheltering in. They will send their surrogates after testing them, making sure they are well paid to spread discord, hatred and COVID-19 as weapons.



Will the GOP vote for mail voting and get their supporters to vote for mail voting?

Please read all of the above. They will force people to stand in long lines for voting in person. They will make Democrats risk getting COVID-19 and dying to exercise their constitutional right to vote. Trumpists will gladly die for Trump and get COVID-19. They are the proud weapons of their own self-destruction. They've been stockholmed.

What do the Republicans stand to lose in this 2020 COVIDE-19 election? 
They stand to lose all of what they value in this world: the balance of money and power.

What do Americans stand to lose?
COVID-19 is depriving Americans of safety and security because the GOP IS GIVING THEM NOTHING THAT WOULD MAKE THEM SAFE AND SECURE ECONOMICALLY, SOCIALLY, ETC. Trumpists do this by stopping Democrats from signing into law a bill for working families and states to fund the culture that the GOP largely is not a part of having created their own culture of wealth. Americans will have little unless the GOP AND DEMOCRATS sign a non-partisan bill to help working families.

If the GOP refuses to help working families, there will be a backlash. Indeed, the GOP not allowing mail voting will anger the independents and Democrats populace. As a result as they did in the Wisconsin primary, voters will turn out live, with masks, and vote against the GOP. Not allowing voting by mail indicates how much the GOP disrespects Americans' right to vote against them. To punish them, they will return Americans to the days of the South when blacks were lynched for voting. 
NYC Women's March 2017 (Carole Di Tosti)
The GOP does not honor elections in a Democracy. They have turned down the Voting Rights Act. They are guilty of voter suppression. It is a foregone conclusion that they welcome foreign adversaries like Russian intel in a virtual warfare to hack any democratic election that would put in anyone but their bought candidate. The evidence is overwhelming they supported Putin's hacking 50 states to put in Donald Trump. The GOP always prevent free and fair voting in presidential elections because the American people in overwhelming numbers support kindness, decency, humanity and generosity, qualities lacking in the current presidential candidate and Senate leader Mitch McConnell.  So in our hearts, the American public is like Sweden. But in the hearts of our leaders with the exception of the Democratic party, they are out of the antebellum South and are the Southern Planter class, right down to their white pointy hates and white robes.

Without a viable SOUTHERN PLANTER CLASS dominating the GOP, manifested in CITIZENS UNITED who gave themselves and their donors trillions in tax breaks and CORPORATE COVID BAILOUTS, can we be like Sweden?
If we vote them out? Yes. It is in the heart of Americans to be Sweden. We only have to consider ourselves worthy of who we are.
