Our Nation's Wholeness and Wellness Under Trump? Jesus Wept!


Donald Trump's Administration beggars the imagination for malfeasance, fraud, lies, corruption, scandal, election fraud.
In this last two years I have been distraught at what has happened to our nation. How could Trump not only usurp the election and the Republicans allow him to, in effect, for the riches he has brought them and their donors? But how could the lies, malfeasance, corruptions, cronyism and obvious payoffs be so widespread? It is as if ethics and morals aren't a consideration and never were with Trump, despite all his protestations to be a Christian. Doesn't a Christian follow the precepts of Christianity which have at their foundation the Golden Rule, wellness, love, unity, peace?

Senator Lindsey Graham

What of the politicians who have been in congress and the senate for decades? Those like Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham are facing Trumpism and embracing it. They have become lost as have all of their party, no longer Republicans. They are NOT the people they once were. They are the arm of money. And they intend to keep it that way using money from any source, and especially from foreign nations because, they know they are the party fated to spread hatred, disease, malnutrition, death among the little people. And they embrace their mission given by the Federalist Society which excludes all but the wealthy from freedom and prosperity, so that they may benefit from the American Taxpayers coffers. And so I mourn because the tenets of this once august hopeful nation are trashed daily by the criminality in the White House.

EPA administration under Trump, Scott Pruitt (website)
Resignations from Scott Pruitt, Tom Price and Ryan Zinke and others for malfeasance have been so rife that we actually forget to keep track of the horror show of the current White House which has numbered over 50 top official post firings in these last two years. The latest example of malfeasance, cronyism and conflicts of interest occurs with Republican Senator Mitch McConnell feathering his own nest in Kentucky with projects like Oleg Deripaska's aluminium factory. Deripaska, an arm of Putin and Russian military intelligence has been guilty of money laundering with a number of banks which had been under sanctions, but these have been lifted under Trump.
Secretary of the Department of Transportation, Elaine Chao, under Donald Trump
McConnell's wife's (Elaine Chao) appointment to a cabinet position by Trump, is a pillow talk conflict of interest. She has made sure that $78 million in federal grants would go into projects strictly for Kentucky via McConnell's former campaign manager Todd Inman as Chao's "intermediary" to funnel money to Kentucky and have Chao help Inman iron out any issues related to the grants or anything else related to Kentucky. This may be "business as usual" for politicians except that Mitch "block" McConnell denied any bills for infrastructure that both parties signed on. Say what? McConnell sat on bi-partisan infrastructure bills only to pass such federal moneys to his state and his state alone? Is Kentucky the only state that has falling bridges, pothole roads, etc.?

Hardly! This action is not based on need, or concern for the entire country. It is based on greed and frear. Mitch is making sure he will be looked upon favorably by Kentucky voters who are among the poorest in the country. He fears not being re-elected because he has and always will neglect the bottom and they are becoming aware of their pitiful condition to decide to vote against the cretin. As "politics" McConnell-style go, the jobs will be given to those who can further help the McConnell cause, board of election supervisors' families, those in political positions in the state government, and those who stand at the political trough expecting handouts and quid pro quos. For the poorest who really need it, they will be going sideways, with nada, niente to fill their pockets. McConnell doesn't care if they don't vote; either as in Georgia, he will make sure their vote is not counted or they don't vote out of malaise. Surely, those who feed at the trough and receive quid pro quos will vote and vote for him.That's Mitch's way as it is Trump's way.
Republican Senator Mitch McConnell has thrown the constitution under the bus
Mitch knows how hated he is nationally. And he is hated in his own state in the cities. There are those state Democrats who are working to topple him. In fact the emails I receive about "Ditch Mitch" come fast and furiously every day. Additionally, they've put up billboards in Kentucky that proclaim his villainy. His reelection poll numbers are in the 20s. Hence the fear and greed with the $78 million in grants. And, he will have to call upon Putin's Soc Puppets, Hackers and the Russian military intelligence to get him reelected, just like they got Trump elected. Or use massive payoffs to those in the state party who will guarantee votes for him, votes from fraudulent voters who vote two, three or four times. It's common practice for Republicans. Under the law? It's fraud, it's illegal. But we need whistleblower to expose this chicanery and bring the guilty to task.
Republican Senator Mitch McConnell
With Oleg Deripaska's factory, if Deripaska brings in Russians to help "train" Kentuckians in the how-tos, then their influence will certainly be used. Duel Russian-American citizens were heavily used during the 2016 election in their online hacks and elsewhere.. So what if foreign adversaries and their spy units interfere with the will of the American people to elect their president fairly? To Trump, who is into winning, that's not wrong. Legality is not "his thing." His thing is himself, Trump, Donald Trump, money for Trump, branding Trump.
Kentucky Billboard outside of Louisville
A vitiation of the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution? What do you think? He and Mitch and the others who will attempt to pull off such malodorous malfeasance and wrongdoing in their states are just following business as usual. They are the last people to uphold the Constitution. At the swear in for their oaths of office and at the beginning sessions of the senate each year? The words mean nothing to them...well, McConnell is getting his people (rich, connected politicos) help. That they are like maybe 100-200 key people and not the Americans/Kentuckians who have the greatest needs? So what? That does not bother Mitch. Those are riff raff people. This is an oligarchy not a democracy, thus, the constitution and the rule of law are obviated in the minds of these criminals. Jesus wept.
At a rally to open the government and stop the impasse of the government shutdown.
This chicanery and fraud has happened with previous administrations, many of them Republican. But not to the extent under this current criminal administration. Fox Media watchers don't know because Fox Media supports the criminality. They are the arms and legs of Trump criminality. They preserve and protect, not a free press, but Donald Trump. And for that they receive Quid Pro Quos. They act with immoral impunity and bastardize and demean the rule of law, the Constitution and this nation, all the while "screaming" that they are patriots and Christians. This is laughable because they are the spirit of Moloch, lies, obfuscation and greed. But the lying line is that other media (elitist, liberal) has slandered and demeaned Trump.

Fox does not produce the facts with the exception of Shep Smith and Chris Wallace and a few other hosts who are not Trump's close friends. They have a modicum of decency and have a huge following or they would be fired. They have not received quid pro quos. Chris Wallace is the stentorian Mike Wallace's son; heave forbid he takes Trump's or the Republican Party's blood money, graft. Hence Fox Media is censored to only relate positive things about Trump and Trumpism. They either mock Democrats or they ignore or avoid discussion of his obstruction of justice, his cover-ups, his lies, his egregiously putting himself and his bank accounts above the national interest. Anything that smacks of blatant malfeasance, fraud, corruption, cronyism, conflicts of interest, egregious mendacity? They refuse to cover. This is not free press, this is censorship on a massive scale.

To Fox, which has been banned in Canada, Europe and the U.K. (I know, I've been there and looked high and low for Fox to no avail) the Republicans are walking on water and blaming the elites for the nation's ills. The irony is that the elitists are the millionaires and billionaires that give millions to the Republicans. And the elitists are the wealthy politicians like Mitch McConnell who pass tax reform for themselves, while the little people in the country get tax increases when they were supposed to receive a tax cut. Millions went to Trump, McConnell, Republicans and their billionaire donors. Meanwhile, the debt has passed $23 trillion dollars, but shhhh, those numbers don't exist.
Attorney General William Barr is not following his constitutional duty to the American people, but is acting in Donald Trump's sole interest. His refusal to release the Republican Mueller Report for months after lying about it and mischaracterizing it is tantamount to obstruction of justice. Who will hold the chief law officer accountable? God.
Why is the corruption of this administration and the Trumpist Republicans so egregious? Because, who will stop them? The Democrats? Please. Republicans and the Federalist Society are hell bent on destroying everything that stands for decency, kindness, generosity and magnanimity for their fellow citizens. The only ones who exist in this nation, who have legitimacy are the billionaires. Do they need more money? No. But their motto clearly is "get as much as you can to bankrupt the nation while you can!" To the Republican mind the American tax payers' wallets are theirs to hand over to billionaires. Robert Mercer's $7 & 1/2 billion dollar tax liability got wiped out with the Trump tax welfare for billionaires. Mercer, a Trump supporter and Steve Bannon friend helped to elect Trump via Russian election hacks and fraud with Cambridge Analytica producing data on citizens in the swing states and turning it over to the Russians.

Because the Russian hacks penetrated the voting machines and there was a clear indication of this weirdness (unbeknownst to the DNC who thought the swing states according to their data were Hillary's, thus she didn't visit them) Paul Manafort working in concert with Bannon and Mercer, et. al, after he was fired from the campaign, told Trump to go to the swing states to make it look like Trump generated the people's support. Not really...Trump paid their infommercial supporters to show up at rallies and it looked impressive. But Trump has been fudging fake support for years. This was and has been easy for him. These folks are what the media, who should expose them but hasn't yet, refers to as his "base."
A rally to end the government shutdown, last year, an ego tantrum by a child put citizens in harm's way.
As for the billionaire tax cuts? McConnell wants Social Security and all Social Programs to be slashed to pay for the wealthy tax cuts. Why? The Republicans are hypocrites. They have ballooned the national debt with the tax cuts to the rich and they went against the Tea Party BS that they were fiscally responsible. They lies are legion; Moloch reigns in their hearts. Jesus Wept!

 The little people are the riff raff and the Constitution which supposedly protects them doesn't because unless you have people upholding the laws, the criminal class will go ahead and do what it wants. The riff raff don't elect the Republicans. The billionaires, the Russians, the Chinese and now the Saudi Arabians donate their money and they end up electing a president who is beholden to them, not the American people. Thus, if they want the US in chaos and destroyed, what is to stop a president, in this instance Trump from obliging them? Of course, he will do what they say, do what they want. Trump has proved to do just that, trusting Putin above his own 17 intell agencies.

If he wants to be with Putin, he needs to be removed by the military. Clearly, he is Putin's spy, his asset, not our President. Mitch McConnell has herded his Republican sheep to support Trump's way with Putin reversing decades long practice of being against Communism and Russia.  In lifting up Trump/Putin, the Republicans act with the intentional will to harm the citizens of this nation putting them in harms way materially by depriving them of a living wage, depriving them of equal economic latitude in the culture, and by threatening the national security by bowing to the interests of a foreign power, not the probity and sanctity of American citizens to a democracy. Jesus wept.
Supreme Court Justice William Kavanaugh, the hearing was a railroading of justice, the FBI couldn't produce the reports on him, vitiated by Trump's executive, a constitutional violation.
Their latest position to turn back the clock regarding Voter's Rights, Women's Rights and Worker's Rights hails from Southern Slavery days. Prompted by well paid lawyers of the Federalist Society, day and night with supporting think tanks, such lawyers work very hard to put power in the hands of as few people as possible. Their motto? No democracy, no Constitution, no rule of law unless it benefits them. The only difference between then and now is that today's slaves transcend color. If you make a living wage known as income, your ass is not your own. It is owned by Mitch McConnell and Trumpists by virtue of what they tax you. Where are the Democrats in all this? The Democrats play into their hands and bleat "foul" which makes one wonder, "Really?" Well, what are you going to do about it?
Ronald Regan, 40th president set the stone rolling for galactic economic inequality until it settled into the 10 million working poor in this nation today. He deregulated the banks creating the S & L Mess and setting the foundation for the 2nd Great Depression and student debt crisis. Outsourcing and union destruction killed the middle class.
I admit, I have been duped. I imagined that the U.S. Constitution meant something. That the amendments had been working to correct the wrongs and social ills of economic discrimination. I was wrong. Hence, the incredible economic divide, created by the Republicans and that great bastion of febrile "communication" Regan. His devastating platform of corruption allowed tax breaks to the corporate and wealthy. He cut their taxes from 74% down to 28% while eliminating deductions that helped the middle class. He skyrocketed disproportionate taxation of the poor and middle class so that CEOs make 373 times more than workers. He promulgated outsourcing and shredded the sanctity of the banks, allowing them to invest and speculate which led to the S & L mess and the incredibly shaky economic structure that exists today which brought on the 2nd Great Depression.

At a rally against Trumpism.
As a result of that febrile-minded idiot who put into place Federalist Society policies (the Society came into being under Regan) there are 10 million working poor today. And yes, he got rid of the law that gave rise to Fox Lying media and the sexual pervert Roger Ailes. The fair doctrine for media that was supposed to allow for the opinions of both sides to be presented was struck down. In this the Federalist Society and Ailes and all of the conservatives paved the way for media which would lie, distort and only present editorials pumping up conservative issues. And no, MSNBC is NOT its equivalent, a patent lie. MSNBC is ahead of the news with CNN (both hated by Republicans).

Also, Regan is the one who pumped up Big Pharma. He instituted Vaccine Court. If you are killed as a result of a vaccine, you go to Vaccine Court where the cost limitations are egregiously low and the level of proof ridiculously high. This is Federal Torte Reform in Vaccine court. Also, with vaccines, companies do not have to go through the prodigious and extensive trials that regular medications go through. The contraindications of  vaccines are not highlighted as they must be with regular drug trials. Indeed, vaccines are so fastracked, that the contraindications are not known until someone is dead! That is Regan. What a guy...a terrible president who also brought you Iran-Contra. An incredible irony. Socially and economically under Regan, the wealth shift was enormous and miserable for most citizens; the 1% were birthed after he conveniently was shot, a blast heard around the world.

After Regan, the bastardization and corruption (with Barr executing a good portion of it as AG under Bush 41) continued with Bush "read my lips no taxes." Bush lied and raised taxes, the bulk of them falling upon the middle class who continued not to be proportionately taxed at the same rate as the wealthy. The middle class, including the derivations "middle upper and upper middle" then carried the greatest taxation burden. The wealthy do not pay their proportionate fair share. It was bad then, it is much, much worse now.
2017 Women's March against Trump, NYC (Carole Di Tosti)
To keep the citizenry looking the other way, Republicans complain about social programs, the welfare state, socialism as if they are being bled dry and this is a horror equivalent to The Beast in Revelation (projection maybe?) This is a lie. They are bleeding the poor and middle class dry. Don't believe it? The Republicans have the greatest number of millionaires in both houses. Who do they represent? Not the majority of citizens as they are supposed to. Certainly, not those who voted for Trump, the average white supremacist males a few of which have a few bucks and are the duped white trash who fought during the Civil War to protect Southern Planters and got nothing but amputations for it. No. The constitutional canard about our "democracy" is that the Republicans represent the people. No. They represent the rich, the corporate CEOs, the billionaires. The Democrats' response must be stronger to hold the corrupt accountable. Currently, their response is like a poot in the wind.
Otto Wambier on the day of sentencing.
During Clinton, my wallet was fatter until Wall Street blew its bubble and the Republicans attempted to impeach Clinton because he lied about having sex. Having sex...truly a national security threat. A joke to malign a dangerous and beloved individual (smeared for decades by Robert Mercer and others who were threatened by Clinton's progressive policies.)

Trump refuses to discuss their 2-hour meeting. Putin will probably be glad to share what was discussed, as he is more forthcoming than Trump, at times. He admitted to wanting Trump in office and practically admitted to helping him get there. They will have more secret talks at the G-20, stabbing Ukraine in the back. (Saul Loeb AFP, Getty Images, see site)
Meanwhile, Trump violates and endangers our nation daily, giving away secrets to the Russians, acting on his own behalf meeting for 2 hours with Putin without anyone in the room, having meetings and deals with the Saudis without congressional approval and Putin and Kim all murderers, all dictators, all wealthy. He loves Kim, a murderer who murdered most probably one of our agents when he killed his brother. Trump blinks at Wambier being returned screaming in a coma, having perhaps authorized $2 million to turn him loose; what a deal! With all this control, by Trump, including his ignoring our 17 intelligence agencies while Putin employs the GRU, SVR, FSB to overthrow our democracy and has never left influencing on FB and Social Media, we are supposed to believe he had no idea Russians were having a meeting in Trump Tower? Really? Jesus weeps at the lies, the fraud, the Moloch-spirited Trump and his administration and the Republicans.

On the subject of Clinton's sexcapade impeachment that may have been engineered to entrap and get rid of him, rumor is the Mossad was involved. (Clinton and and Rabin were brokering a peace deal between the Palestinians and Israel which the ultra-right wing segments of the Israeli population opposed vehemently. A curse was place upon Rabin because of it. An ultra right wing agitator assassinated Rabin with the help of like-minded security forces who did not protect Rabin and like-minded officials in the opposing party. Bebe was against the brokered peace which would have stopped the building of settlements...see Amos Gitai's film Rabin: The Last Day). What family is heavily involved with the building of settlements in Israel? Quid pro quo deals going on between Kushner, Trump, Bebe? Why not? If Rabin were alive, that would have been opposed.
 
As for sexcapades? Good Christian Republicans were paying for their mistresses' abortions then and now, while attempting to curtain Women's Rights for abortions. In Texas and Indiana, Missouri closing clinics for poor women (Planned Parenthood) decreases their access to healthcare. Who pays the bill for the Republicans' mistresses' abortions? Were we charged as a matter of course for their congressional duty? Is the media checking into this? What about some excellent Fox "News" investigative reporting? We were charged for Republicans' sex abuse and predation lawsuits. We paid off their legal fees when aides and interns sued them for sexual harassment. Don't believe me? Look it up. Republicans will never take care of their own bills if they can find an idiot somewhere to pick up the tab. The idiot is U.S. Taxpayers who are footing the bill for Trump's $100 million dollar golf outings, for the excesses of  Scott Pruitt, for Ryan Zinke's corruptions and Tom Price's and many more.
Ryan Zinke, Secretary of the Interior in the Trump administration
I digress to the present. Let's move back to Bush Jr. and the beginning of the longest war in history, by the way a war which was grounded in the Unitary Executive Theory which put all power in the hands of Dick Cheney, (see the film VICE, it's fairly accurate) under the auspices of now dead Supreme Court Justice, the cheerful, bombastic, blowhard Anton Scalia. Obviously a Federalist Society tool, Scalia supported Gore not becoming president and Cheney's Halliburton reaping untold profits off a spin-off war that persists today and hot spots in Africa and elsewhere that we and Congress are kept distracted about (Eric Prince's war machine is involved) because they are going hat in hand with subpoenas to the above the law Trump administration.

War is profitable and the other Lords of War Defense contractors feed off the trough of tax payer dollars, millions and millions of dollars with no accountability, literally, losing money like that $16 million line item that they could not find. That has happened under Bush Jr., Obama and the current president. That lost money? Into someone's plush pockets while Social programs are cut and the First Responders have to go on bended knee with John Stewart's vilification of congress to get additional money to pay for their cancer treatments. This is beyond shameful; it is EVIL.Think about all of those who died during this unjust war (women and children and families as casualties as well) which gave Cheney power and money and consolidated power in the Executive Branch illegally. It is a war that has militarized our nation at home, a war based on lies, like the shameful Viet Nam War who benefited the political hacks who supported it. The families and children dead in Iraq and Afghanistan and the ill will that this continued war has created? Jesus wept!
The Federalist Society
The Federalist Society behind Scalia, Kavanaugh, the Unitary Executive Theory and the tax breaks for billionaires has no respect for democracy, no respect for the Middle Class, and every worshipful desire to see the money brought by their politicos right into their investment accounts. They are the slave makers. It is a "New World Order" for them brought to you by Citizens United (look it up) and the power of the Executive Branch which Barr and Trump and the Trumpists and Republican party incorrectly, illegally adhere to. They are anarchists who do not follow the rule of law. They vitiate the U.S. Constitution of its three branches of government by making the Executive Branch the sole and exclusive body adhered to as Trump and Barr and former WH officials defy subpoenas. This is a fraud.

Without the three branches functioning to submit to each other, the constitution has been voided. No one branch can exist without the other two. Thus, the 2nd Amendment no longer applies as it cannot exist on its own basis wiping out the other two branches. Trump and Barr have wiped out their supremacy and nullified their power. Either they adhere to the law or they don't. If they don't, they abrogate the law. Their power only exists by virtue of the "balances" of the other branches. It's one for all three or none. Thus, we are in a state of anarchy. Trump does not have to be listened to or adhered to if he and Barr refuse to answer subpoenas. He is not president and with his VP must be removed OR he submits to subpoenas. That's his job. He cannot be above the U.S. Constitution which has given him his powers with the other two branches. If he tries to, he has no power. Neither does Barr. When will constitutional lawyers realize this?

Women's March 2017 (Carole Di Tosti)
The Constitution was supposed to safeguard democracy in its ability to evolve the rights of the citizens of the United States. This is not happening today. And I mourn for what I thought existed as a document which would allow citizens, especially black and Native Americans and women and ethnic groups, and disparate genders to prosper and attempt to live freely. I thought the assumption was that in our government and history, anyone who was President would be moving the country in the direction of equanimity for all citizens. This is human decency and benefits the greater good and protects the peace. It is doubly protected socially, if there is economic equality (60%-40%). The president in a position of power must stand up first for the least privileged in the nation, for the most privileged can make it and have, on their own. The opposite is the case in the U.S. The political culture is illegal, immoral, indecent, genocidal and sadistic and it is spreading its soul rot despite all the fake Christians who support it as the deaf, dumb and blind reprobate dogs returning to their vomit Christians that they are. Jesus wept!

We've had egregious backward moments in our history that were anti-constitutional: WWII-the internment of the first generation Japanese-American citizens, disproportionate number of blacks in our prisons-another slave culture,  the Chinese Exclusion Act which ended in the 1940s, women's oppression in their decisions about their bodies and in the workplace, Native American treaty violations and land grabs by oil companies and more.  But there was progress made in the 1960s and 1970s until Regan and the Republicans couldn't risk any more "progress" after Nixon went down in infamy and resigned. When Ford got in he carried the torch of the Republican Party and pardoned Nixon; the country responded with its approval of Carter, a Democrat who is still alive and whose Christianity is greater than all the current evangelical fakes like the Juniors (Franklin Graham, Falwell Jr.) Pat Robertson, etc.

But that was then this is now. The former Republicans-Regan and the Bushes gave lip service to the U.S. Constitution and found a semblance of honor in the offices of government. They acted like the people of the nation mattered and the rule of law mattered. There was humiliation with Nixon; there was an admission of guilt and hope to do better. But Nixon was a thinker, a writer, to some extent a philosopher. This current administration? Trump is ADHD; he is learning disabled and most probably now moving on toward advanced dementia. His background of privilege destroyed him and subverted his sense of empathy for all but himself. He is a psychopath and a sociopath. Read his biography. Open your eyes to what is happening at the border between the U.S. and Mexico. And the trade deal he touted was a distraction, by the way, already set. How he lies? A masochist and sadist of incredible proportions; his dementia is making him worse.
Protest against the government shutdown, 2018, a crisis that Trump made and which caused the government more money than if the government workers were paid. Another great strategy.
Today, I mourn that our country has stopped attempting to live up to the greatness of what the constitution brings in its potential for evolution as a living document to make the lives of its citizens free with economic opportunity. It is no more. It has been vitiated and nullified. Soon, eyes will be opened to the fact that either the three branches operate or the one who has usurped the power denying he must submit to the other branches, because he is a criminal and doesn't want to be exposed, must be removed by the military, since the constitution no longer exists. Impeachment is not an option any more. The three branches do not function. The constitution is inoperative. There is no law being followed. Thus, the military must take the reigns of power for the good of the country. The Trumpist Party is a canard, a fraud. The individual who occupies the White House is there illegally and unlawfully. He has nullified our constitution and three branches of government in balance and operation. Either the U.S. is not a dictatorship, or the military removes him and the VP and holds new elections because their commander and chief is attempting to unlawfully usurp power. The constitution no longer applies. Trump has killed it and must be removed and arrested.  Jesus Wept!

Trump/McConnell Shutdown: Psychosis, Mental Derangement, Inhumanity, Sadism


Federal workers and contractors, of all colors and religions protest the government shutdown (courtesy of Getty Images, see site)
The political situation that currently abides in the United States bears discussing on the basis of mental fitness and the wellness of our nation.

Trump and Republicans have shut down the government with bragging rights. If you are a US taxpayer, and supported the Tea Party movement years ago and expected the Republicans to be fiscally accountable to drive down the debt they smeared the Democrats for causing? Then you are mentally deranged. Sorry, if that is a blunt statement, but truth is the way to healing and wellness. And your mental derangement is the same as the Trump/McConnell's psychosis. Here's why.

The Tax "Reform" Act the Trump/Republicans passed has added trillions of dollars of debt to the budget and raised the average US citizen's tax bill, not lowered it. The billionaires of the nation, whom the poor and average US citizens now subsidize with billionaire welfare, received millions in tax breaks. The Mercers, friends of Steve Bannon and once proud owners of corrupt Cambridge Analytica (a data firm the FBI has records of involvement in 2016 election machinations with Russians) received well needed tax relief.
City Harvest Food Rescue and other national food pantries are doubling down to feed FBI, US Attorneys, TSA, Federal Maintenance Workers, Air Traffic Controllers who run this country, not the traitors to the constitution, Trump/McConnell and various Republicans who work hard to hold US taxpayers hostage in The New American Slavery (photo  from City Harvest site, go there if you can donate to feed 18,000 NYC Fed workers)
Mercer owed US taxpayers a staggering $7.5 billion. With the tax break he most probably has relieved his tax burden now subsidized by US underclasses. Is it any wonder he helped elect Trump by any means necessary using the book Clinton Cash (effected by him, Steve Bannon and others) to smear Hillary Clinton from here to eternity? His tax bill surely got resolved as we carry his load. US citizens have been robbed of what was rightfully theirs to fund the government disproportionately. The underclasses hold the bag while billionaires use BitCoin, dark money centers, offshore accounts, shell corporations, Deutsche Bank and Cypress Bank (hello Wilbur Ross shareholder in CB) to money launder funds they stole from Russian citizens and US citizens they don't want on record.

The government now is going bankrupt. Welcome to Trump/McConnell psychosis, an ever spiraling destruction of their mental health and wellness and ours. Surely, they should commit suicide immediately, instead of this slow process of delusional thinking, directed suicidal behavior, and subverting their own interests which is to say the nation's interests. Unless they are foreign nationals, the Trump/McConnell shutdown is self-harm on a grand scale that impacts everyone in the nation, regardless of bank account.
Federal workers protest the Shutdown, refuse The New American Slavery (courtesy Getty images, see the site)
Economic injustice is at the heart of the Trump/Republican shutdown, now in its 35th day. Billionaires like Trump are largely inviolate and untouched, so they believe. The shutdown does not impact them financially. They received millions in tax cuts. Wilbur Ross yesterday chided harmed federal workers for not getting bank loans to tie them over. The man who is a large shareholder of Cypress Bank, the Putin money laundering bank, is mentally infirm to make such a comment. And the man is Secretary of Commerce? God help us! The poor (if you are a federal worker you are poor) cannot afford bank loans (The micro lending that Mohammed Yunes won a Nobel Peace Prize for is not popular in the US. So micro lending is out.).

To identify how Federal workers are poor is explained in the following discussion. Let us use proportionate comparisons. The billionaire class population that received the tax breaks number a handful of individuals out of the total number of US citizens. Yet this handful owns the largest portion of the wealth of the US. Without this handful, US taxpayers are impoverished, like a third world nation. This is economic warfare that has been going on for years, The New Civil War, if you will primarily established by Reganism. The war is to wrench as much from the Middle Class and Upper Middle Class through sub rosa declines in living standards, rises in inflation, declines in purchasing power, rises in taxes disproportionately giving the bulk of taxation burden to the underclasses while allowing off shore accounts, to serve as tax havens. That is money that could be used for the US budget but will never make it to our nation.

US citizens love the nation who are the Federal Workers. We despise those who in the WH and congress who claim to represent us but only represent foreign adversarial nations (Russia, Saudia Arabia) and the billionaire class.
Thus, in 2019, even if you have 10 million to leave to your progeny, you are not only not wealthy, your money doesn't even begin to compare to the wealth of the billionaire class. Proportionately, you are really not better off but are a few stone throws away from bankruptcy. If Republicans continue to gut healthcare and you get sick, all that money will be exhausted on paying for treatments. Indeed, wellness, mental and physical is predicated on financial wellness, first. Excepting the handful of billionaires whose financial stability guarantees them their human rights of medical access (the right to wellness is not a right, but a privilege enforced by wealth, according to Republicans/Mitch McConnell/Trump who are in lock step with the medical industrial complex), the underclasses especially those who think they have money, have no rights. Not having the right to choose one's doctor regardless of cost, is no right at all. To think the constitution gives us this right is a canard. Billionaires have that right. Everyone else does not. Welcome to The New American Slavery. US Citizens will not tolerate this New American Slavery no matter how hard Republicans try to jam it down our throats. The handwriting is on the WALL, and Republican/Trump/Putin psychosis has blinded them to sound, mental wellness.

Continuing on the subject of healthcare, the medical industrial complex charges unseemly prices for prescriptions and medical procedures. Financial insecurity for all US citizens on the basis of Republican policies about healthcare is a real threat for all not in the billionaire class. Considering that we US taxpayers gave them millions in tax breaks, we are paying for the billionaires' healthcare privileges while destroying our own rights to life and healthcare. Thus, proportionately, the ones least able to gain health are not insured and of course, they are the most likely to get sick and die as they will not be able to recover easily getting no treatment or bad treatment. The ones most able to be "cured" will be "cured" all the more quickly and their physical bodies will continue. It's too bad their mental derangement will increase as a result of the egregious and inhuman inequities. They unconsciously know. And this contributes to their psychosis, in a never ending cycle. Their behaviors give them away. Healthy folks who embrace wellness are generous. The psychotic abide in isolation, hatred and restriction.
Federal workers protest. Polls reveal US taxpayers credit Trump/Republicans for shutdown; they reject the wall sand see it as inhuman. (Getty images, see the site).
As long as this situation abides, the mental derangement of the billionaire class will only worsen. And eventually, that psychosis they demonstrate which at its base is not only genocidal but suicidal, will destroy them and take many of us with them. Since there are more in the other classes that are younger, healthier and mentally sentient and coherent, the underclasses will survive proportionately. The billionaires who have their own progeny will still number a handful.

The delusional lie that the shutdown does not impact the billionaire class is a particularly "in your face lie," if one has the eyes to understand how. First, corporations that depend on the health of the consumer class to keep them going are losing millions of dollars every day. Delta Airlines is an example. Each of the Federal workers who Trump/McConnell have made into slaves is not buying what they used to buy. Their mortgages are collapsing which will impact the banking industry. The small feeder businesses that relied on them, contractors that number in the millions are calculating losses exponentially. Their losses impact those they contract out to and buy from and that impacts the others they contract out to and do business with. The domino effect is now reaching a point of no return.

From this shutdown, businesses will go bankrupt. People will die. They are already dying on the border where the impact of this continues and the families and jailed children are being neglected and die. Federal workers cannot afford their medications which has a direct impact on their job performance as does the untold stress of encroaching financial insolvency. The incalculable misery caused by the psychotic McConnell/Trump shutdown because there "must be a wall," is a enslavement to unwellness, physical, emotional, psychological.

The New American Slavery that Trump/McConnell have imposed on the federal workers (many Southern workers supported Trump) is inhuman. For not only does the slavery impact the workers who must spend money to work for nothing, it impacts those who would contract to them to spend and not be paid and never be paid, thus increasing the slavery caused by Trump/McConnell to millions of individuals and of course corporations who depend upon consumers (the airlines and travel industry are being ravaged).
New Yorkers happy to protest an unfit, racist, misogynistic president in NYC, 1/21/2017 (Carole Di Tosti)
At least the Slave Economy of the South had a basis.There was a logic to it. There is no logic to The New American Slavery that forces US citizens to be slaves to pay for the privilege of being slaves if they choose to be federal workers. Oh, by the way, by now, the costs to the federal budget for luxuriating and indulging in Trump/McConnell's psychosis has now exceeded what the wall price was. To reopen the government will cost much more, in fact in the billions. The trillions of US debt increases. So the Tea Party Republicans who scream that Democrats spend? They have proven themselves psychotic, delusional. Why give any money to Trump/McConnell for an absurdity wall that is borne out of political agendas (that very may well be conflicts of interest-Trump friends will benefit from its building) and maintained by psychosis. More money will be needed, more and more and more for a wall of steel slats, or concrete or reeds? The more US taxpayers pay for contracts for this elusive wall that doesn't work, the more trillions Republicans are willing to spend. Entailing the US Taxpayer? Why?  What is causing Trump/McConnell to take such an illogical, intractable position that Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats have sanely pointed out to them again and again?

NYC protest 1/21/2017 (Carole Di Tosti)
It is beyond logic. A wall must be built as an emergency? It should have been funded before the tax breaks to billionaires bankrupted the budget. The wall being built because of caravans? More people now are going to Mexico for healthcare than illegal migrants coming here and Mexico welcomes us and is becoming enriched. For Mexico and those looking for cheap, good healthcare,t's a win/win. Capitalism at work for Mexico. Too bad there is no free market capitalism in the US. Only Billionaires enslaving the underclasses in The New American Slavery.

Ann Coulter is adamant in upholding the Trump psychosis. Ann Coulter psychotic? Well, the rationale follows. A wall prevents people from coming here. Really? They are tunneling under, climbing over, flying over, boating to our coasts and bringing drugs in from  Canada. So a physical barrier only benefits the demented for whatever reason: Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and Trump/McConnell as their cronies whom they promised contracts to and wait with hands outstretched to construct this "barrier" which is a waste of our money. This is US citizen financial enslavement with no benefits.

Trump's promised wall claims are lies. Mexico will never pay because the leaders of that government are mentally sound. So while US citizens are made slaves. They and go to food banks because they are forced to work and spend to get to work for nothing in return, impoverishing their bank accounts. The same applies  for contractors and corporates like Delta Airlines, etc., while Trump/McConnell are incapable of making a decision despite the Democrats putting up bills they refused, despite passing a bill in the Senate a month ago that funded the government. Trump on TV owned the Shutdown and McConnell is silent; silence is acquiescence, agreement. So McConnell's doing nothing is agreement with Trump. Meanwhile, the situation is now dire, for all of us are impacted, regardless of how much money billionaires have in their bank accounts. Not seeing the truth of this is a blindness, a psychosis. It is an inhumanity that is sadistic and masochistic. And there is no cure for that psychosis. None!

Say a billionaire gets on his private plane. He still has to depend on Air Traffic Controllers to land him, and if not, is he so sure he can avoid a mid air crash with a poor man's airliner? Aviation is not only Air Traffic Control, it is also contractors at airports who maintain planes. If they are understaffed as it is and now working ungodly hours for no pay? Is it safe for billionaire businessmen to fly, risking a poorman's plane might hit him or cause delays at an airport? Is it safe for AirForce One to fly? It used to be flying was safer than driving. Things have changed with the shutdown.

Would a billionaire put up with working for no pay? Would Trump? Absolutely not. He is a billionaire. Yet because "he can," he will force the poor who need a paycheck to suffer the indignity. Well, bottom line is this. Remember his promises? Soooo much winning. He alone was the white savior who would bring prosperity to this nation. Really? Is the Shutdown prosperity and good faith building?

US Taxpayers are helping Federal workers with donations and volunteerism to food banks. They know it is not enough.
 How long do you trust the underclasses 95% of the nation to gladly accept an enslavement that is worse than the enslavement of Southern Planters who at least guaranteed food and shelter to their slaves. Those planters saw their slaves as having a tremendous worth to them. Slaves were more valuable than the poor whites who were lazy and refused to work because they didn't "want to be slaves."  Meanwhile, poor whites had no value. How many died abused and abusing, predators of their own families because they were useless and valueless. The same abides today. But Federal workers will not put up with this, though white supremacists descended from poor whites would because they have the same psychosis as McConnell/Trump. If white supremacists who are the underclass still support Trump/McConnell/Republicans? They are psychotic and delusional still expecting to prosper. I rest my case.

Slaves knew their value. Do Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump understand the import of what they are doing, above all, to themselves as US Citizens? For they are rendering all races, creeds and colors valueless, proclaiming their work is valueless. This is an eye opener. If they didn't know it before, US citizens are being shown what their work is worth, what their selves are worth, what they mean to Mitch McConnell, Republicans and Trump and his cabinet. Can you still support someone who deems you of no worth, especially when you work for them, pay their salaries while you are stiffed? (Congress are "essential workers," don't forget.
For the Republican Party, suckers have become psychotics. Barnum's empire is done forever as will be Trump's
 How many Republicans have foregone their paychecks as Democrats have? Has McConnell? Has McConnell's wife or his other relatives that Trump recently gave jobs to?) Meanwhile, TSA are non essential workers? The Coast Guard that do a fabulous job of keeping our borders safe on the high seas are non essential workers? Law enforcement? US Prosecutors like my cousin, non essential workers who try the very criminals that Trump supposedly is building the wall to keep out? Really? Psychosis. Supporting Republicans who are psychotic along with Trump? Go ahead, be psychotic like them. As for me and my house, God gives a sound mind. I will worship The LORD.

This New American Slavery is a lie under God and under the laws of our constitution to which we pledge allegiance to under God. The Trump/McConnell shutdown will bring McConnell/Trump/Republicans to their knees because it is against our freedoms and right to work and be paid. They will be brought down, if not by impeachment, by election or by lawsuit for the Trump/McConnell shutdown is unconstitutional. By the time the Republicans decide to accept Nancy Pelosi's sound plan, the loss of money and respect of the US taxpayer will be so great, that Putin will not have enough billions (despite Oleg Deripaska getting his money from his sanctions lifted) to fund Republican election campaigns and guarantee a win for them. It will be throwing good money after bad; Putin is not stupid. A Shutdown like this is an event. It will be remembered. And the Republicans have done the Democrats a favor with their Republican psychosis of cruelty. They have revved up the ire of US taxpayers to overwhelm them in the next election and vote Democratic. McConnell/Trump stupidity and suicidal masochism is psychotic. To stick with the party line, Republicans are destroying themselves.
Women's March NYC, 1/21/2017, before the Mueller Investigation and firing of Comey. New Yorkers who know what and who Trump is also knew then that Trump was controlled by Putin, a fact in the last two years that has been proven in plain sight. The only ones who may know this on Fox News are Chris Wallace, Geraldo Rivera and Shep Smith. The other media outlets are apprised of the weird bromance bt Trump/Putin (Carole Di Tosti)
Trump is bankrupt; his slavish behavior to Putin for money quid pro quos is obvious. Putin owns him and now Putin holds the US hostage via Trump/McConnell. But the US taxpayer will not be held hostage to Trump/McConnell/Republicans and their paymaster Putin. Putin can continue to live large and impoverish his own people (1 in 5 have no toilets in Russia). We are not Communists or Putin serfs. And unfortunately, there is a document which guarantees us freedoms though Republicans and billionaires DAILY HAVE WORKED TO ABROGATE THAT DOCUMENT, though they are US citizens. Why? Because they are sick, unwell. mentally unfit, psychotic. Look at the average Republican. Do they appear healthy?

Like US Citizens who will not tolerate this psychosis, neither will the Russian people or those Republics like Ukraine or Latvia and others of the former U.S.S.R. The world is watching what happens here. The shameful and psychotic behavior of Trump/McConnell/Republicans is on record. If Putin remains aligned with them his clever prestidigitation has flown.The psychosis has gripped him as well.
The avalanche is here, MidTerms 2018, 2020 Election. (Carole Di Tosti, NYC, 1/21/2017)
When the psychosis is overthrown, US taxpayers will elect those who will represent their national interests. US taxpayers will no longer subsidize the handful of billionaires with BILLIONAIRE WELFARE. The billionaires will have to pay their proportionate share by kicking into the government coffers, not by paying a pittance, a few millions to obviate their $7.5 billion tax bills through Citizens United and payoffs to election boards in swing states, through payoffs to Republican PACS in exchange for Tax Reform that gives them millions and gives the bill to the underclasses. That dog won't hunt and in fact, that dog is turning on its slavemaster.

The right to life, the freedom to choose to pursue health and happiness is not subject to the infirmity and mental derangement of others who presume to lead but who cannot even govern their own excesses or their fleshly appetites. We of healthy, sound mind know that being slaves of the billionaire class is suicide. Billionaires need to own up to their mental illness and suicidal impulses. The billionaire infirm must go the way of the infirm, the deranged, the way of the deranged. And they must be brought to pay their fair share and have a Jesus moment. There is no place for any more Republican psychotics in our government which gives BILLIONAIRE WELFARE that billionaires take greedily because they are mentally deranged.

The shutdown has exposed The New American Slavery to the light. So be it. There are too many sane US taxpayers who will not allow the mad McConnells/Trumps/Putins/ BILLIONAIRES to continue in their own self-destruction. We are the geese that lay golden eggs. We will not lose our freedoms because riches have made them mentally ill and cupidity has rotted out their souls and minds. If the demented wish to be  consumed by their own insanity feel free folks. But you will not take the US taxpayer, you will not take the federal worker or the contractors that supply them or Delta Airlines or other corporations who are losing massive revenue, or their shareholders. You will have to go lunatic alone without us. You will not kill us, the geese. God gave us sound minds and our US American House resides in the inalienable rights God has given us. We know the difference between freedom and slavery. We choose freedom.
NYC 1/21/2017, I would add we refuse to accept The New American Slavery brought by Trump/McConnell/Republicans psychotic, UnAmerican activities. (Carole Di Tosti)
