Protecting Democracy For Americans

It is unsettling that Donald Trump sides with Putin over our own security agencies. Putin says he didn’t do it, and Trump believes him? I don’t believe Trump is that stupid and the alternative is him paying back Russia for something. You already know he would have ended sanctions if it had not been for congress mandating sanctions in a veto proof majority.

I don’t know, Trumps actions speak for themselves, there are no words… Who would have thought him saying on National TV during the debates that if Russia was listening, find the emails, and then they do it. We thought he wasn’t that stupid but remember he also said he could shoot someone on 5th avenue so he is not concerned with what we think. In his mind he is far above us normal mortals. What do we know.

Trump,”President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today”, so Trump Sided with Putin over our own intelligence agencies… Makes perfect sense right?

*Russian Interference, Obstruction, Pay Offs, And Abuse Of Power*

Maybe its just me but I have a problem with a possible defendant picking his own judge on the Supreme Court… I think its a safe bet that the SCOTUS will be taking plenty of cases involving Trump. Everything Trump does will make its way up to the Supreme Court.


*Trump Trade Wars*

Even FOX breaks with the president on trade wars. And why have wages not gone up? Can you simply reverse the global marketplace and think you are going to make America great again? Obviously a lot of American business depends on exports. We will pay more in Washington State as we compensate to keep our farmers in business.


*EPA Threats & Climate Change*

Clean coal is a myth. Here is the truth written in plain language.

I do not support a carbon tax paid at the gas pump. Maybe if I had more money and could afford one of those fancy electric cars but many of us are suck with what we have. If you live in an apartment without charging options you are surely stuck with gas.

This does mean I accept lowering emission or fuel economy standards and I certainly support looking at new technologies to overcome the growing carbon problem. I am just saying that putting the burden on us, people stuck with gasoline burning vehicles, does not seem fair.

How about our government doing what the rest of the civilized world does and support alternative clean energy? Staying in the Paris Climate Accord would have also been at least a good start to showing we are serious rather than just turning a blind eye to science. Science is great when you want that life saving treatment but its fake when it goes up against big oil? Get serious, you are being conned!


*Endless Military Spending and Wars*

Normally you just have to follow the money. With higher gas prices come record profits for those that deal in oil. I feel many of the Middle East conflicts center around money and I am sure Trump and his big oil investors have reaped profit from him leaving the Iran deal.

You are seeing the results of it now at the pump. This is what Saudi Arabia has wanted for years, to make more money on a barrel of oil. The higher prices for a barrel of oil makes that dirty tar sand crud move into profitable and the need for pipe lines also if they can maintain the trend to more expensive oil.

Former President Obama put it; “Walking away from the JCPOA turns our back on America’s closest allies, and an agreement that our country’s leading diplomats, scientists, and intelligence professionals negotiated”. But I think Obama was not taking into account the greed of oil companies.

Follow the money, off course they want to shut down the flow of oil from Iran. I suppose Russia only halfheartedly condemns it as they will also profit. This is win-win for a lot of people unless you happen to be people of Iran.


*Net Neutrality*

On December 14th, the FCC Chairman Ajit Pai repealed Net Neutrality. This is just one more thing no one asked for that the GOP shoved on us. Make no mistake about it, this is not the FCC doing this, this is Trump and the GOP that enabled Pai to do this.

Net Neutrality replaced over 700 rules and regulations for consumer protection. By killing Net Neutrality those rules are not coming back. Killing Net Neutrality brings back the wild west with Internet Service Providers like Verizon and Comcast in charge. This is why they have lobbied for this so hard and brought about people like Ajit Pai.

Luckily Washington State is leading the way in net neutrality. Bravo for us but I am sure the FCC will sue us over it for the benefit of Xfinity and Verizon.

Trumps SCOTUS pick Brett Kavanaugh supports corporate censorship.



*Political Comedy*

Its been seven months and it is overwhelming. Does that happen to you? I have to step back from it all and look at it in a different light. To that I send my thanks to Bill Maher, John Oliver, Seth Meyers, Steven Colbert, Trevor Noah, Saturday Night Live, and Full Frontal with Samatha Bee. They prove that if it was not so serious it would be funny and what a joke our President, his spokespeople and his cabinet truly are.

Many of our favorite shows are on vacation so I may resurrect some golden oldies!

The reason is very simple, this is a progressive website and Donald Trump has proved himself the exact opposite of progressive. His first moves in office were to dismantle any progressive gains and he has never been the president of all the people of the united states and he is certainly not my president. Here we believe in equality, equal rights for all, and a country that cares about its citizens. Donald Trump conned a lot of people to vote for him despite it was against their best interests. Up to now the only real interest he cares about are the very rich. So yes, the majority of this country and certainly progressives wait with baited breath till this person and his entire family is out of the white house, and yes, it gives us hope that one day the GOP will think about their constitutes instead of their party and rich donors.
