Protecting Democracy For Americans

I am curious how much of America Trump will sell out for personal gain before he goes down. The 500 million dollars to his resort from China for him to bail out ZTE is the most glaring and he didn’t even try to hide it. Then his abuse of power to go after Jeff Bezos shows there are no depths he is unwilling to sink too. Do not forget he also sold out the west coast to off shore drilling. Actually there is not enough room here to list all he has done so far for personal gain. I just don’t understand how his message of “Make Trump Rich Again” resonated so well with his base.

After all the revelations, I can’t stop myself from wondering what Israel offered Trump to scuttle the Iran deal. It must have been HUGE!

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

The Russian allegations seem so real because the American majority did not vote to make Donald Trump the president. This corruption in our national election for president needs to end! We vote one way and we get a complete liar instead. Fact is this is several degrees worst than Russia because at least they make it look like the Russian people voted for Putin, unlike our election.

 

*The Build Up To New Wars*

Donald Trump walking away from the Iran deal for no reason is not a good thing for this country. It shows we do not live up to our obligations on the international stage. It shows how unstable our current president is when he would do something like this for some kind of vanity reasons? Because Obama did it? It shows the excessive power we placed on one person who can break international agreements and just how flawed our political system is.

It reminds me of the time the UN certified that Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction, that they were living up to their agreements, and we all know how that turned out. We have Trump arguing of Iran violations despite international inspectors saying they are not. Are we going to go along with another war because of our unstable leader? All the issues in the Middle East are connected.

As 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”.

 

*EPA Threats*

Trump drops EPA protections to save coal jobs he says. There are less than 70,000 coal jobs left in this declining dirty energy. At the same time there are over 650,000 jobs in clean renewable energy and it is a growing field. If this does not show that Trump has no idea of what he is doing, you don’t have to look far for other examples.

Fact is the energy industry will determine where the jobs are, not President Trump, but if they start strip mining your favorite federal lands, you will know why. Coal has been on the way out for a while now. Natural Gas is much easier to produce, easier to transport, and much cleaner to burn. Despite Trump’s EPA killing regulations on pollution from burning coal it does not change the facts.

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

The EPA also wants your cars to use more gas, to produce more greenhouse emissions. This will be interesting to watch as California will stick to the standards. Perhaps everyone should have the option to buy a car that meets CA Standards. All at the same time gas prices rise to the highest level in 8 years.

 

*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.

 

 

*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.

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.
