I love my country.
Our forefathers set down to create a new land based on freedoms, mapping out the framework for a government for the people, by the people.
Corruption is nothing new. Our forefathers recognized the possibility of corruption and so set out to protect our country by having three branches of government – the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial. These three branches of equal importance are designed to police each other to prevent corruption.
All that has been thrown in the trash by Donald Trump, his cronies in the Department of Justice, and his enablers in the Senate. We now live in a fascist dictatorship governed by those under the direction of a hostile foreign nation.
Russia interfered with the 2016 Presidential Election, this has been proven the by the FBI and CIA and reaffirmed by Special Council Robert Mueller and the Senate Intelligence Committee. Donald Trump and his circle colluded with Russia to illegally take the office of President – this is fact.
The problem is that the people charged with protecting us from these criminal actions are either directly or indirectly working for Trump.
Trump’s National Security Advisor was an undisclosed agent for a hostile foreign power. Flynn was paid millions of dollars to advance Russia’s interests with Trump. Flynn pleaded guilty to this. It is fact.
Now, Trump’s head of the Department of Justice, William Barr, has dropped charges against Flynn and taken the extreme position of stating that Flynn should never have been investigated in the first place.
As if there was any doubt, Barr is nothing more than a lapdog for Trump’s criminal enterprise.
This is not the first inexcusable abuse of power by Trump and his enablers. Trump was found to be in collusion with Russia by Special Council Robert Muller. Muller left it to the Senate to take action against Trump. Instead of working to enforce the laws of the United States of America, Republicans in the Senate let Trump take a pass.
Then Trump was found guilty of illegally demanding personal political quid pro quo favors from the Ukraine before he would release Congressionally approved financial aid to that nation. He was also found guilty of obstruction of justice for trying to cover up his crimes. He was impeached by the House. But again, the Republicans in the Senate failed to fulfill the duties of their job and again let Trump take a pass.
There are no longer three branches of government. Now there is only the Trump Mafia. Barr with the DOJ and Mitch McConnell with the Senate have given Trump free reign to destroy our once great nation.
The scariest thing is that many American’s don’t know they are being walked into Russian rule. Trump, Russia, and the GOP have funneled hundreds of millions of dollars into disinformation through propaganda machines like FOX News – a “news” agency that has gone to court arguing its right to purposefully lie in its broadcasts.
Yet Trump, the king of disinformation, cries foul of the free press. Respected news papers and television networks, he labels “Fake News” – not that the news is fake, he just doesn’t like it.
The Washington Post has tallied that Trump has lied over 18,000 times since taking office.
Russia is again actively trying to interfere in the U.S. elections, not just with disinformation, but with actual hacking of the voting system. Isn’t it interesting that the Republican Senate has failed to authorize any of its approved funds for election security?
Vote by Mail has been used by the Armed Forces since Civil War. Maybe in this era of COVID-19 pandemic, the Vote by Mail option may also be the best solution for blocking Russian election interference.
Our country with its clown king Donald Trump has become an international embarrassment. Standing up against the wrongs of a corrupt leader is not un-American. It is what every true American should be doing – standing up against a criminal enterprise, standing up against the Trump Mafia, standing up for the principles set forth by our nation’s founders.
This November Vote Blue.
Peace. Love. Trust.
