Let me first get a little insight into what you might claim as some of your inspirational sources, and then perhaps share some of your beginning influences, and then a few artists you admire in your field currently….
I have noticed you used some minor atonal chording evocative of Debussy in one of your songs, I was wondering if this was an early influence because you were exposed to his haunting repetitive music stylings when you were studying with the ABT ( American Ballet Theatre ) in 2016?? Did this start this progressive trend of the looping and repetitive style of your own compositions???

Progressing in my sound. I am not sure of the word “progressive”, it’s limiting to one’s growth if you forget your roots, because the true avant-garde springs from the Classical. The true progress comes from the doing. As in what is accomplished while doing. There is no progress unless you are learning. I think every day you learn something new is progress. You learn a little more, maybe notice ways you can perfect what you are creating:  that’s progressive.
/ CWD
Where do you begin in your composing??? Do you start with a melody, a lyric…or just a feeling…???
/ Isobella
I see my music more in ” moments” of being. The moments of the time each piece was created. I have progressed tremendously because when I first started my music journey I was scared to sing
  / CWD
You?  I find that hard to believe !!! How did you overcome this …inhibition ? …this mental block ??? Did anybody help you get past the rather sterile atmosphere of the studio, give you some guidance on transcending the pressure that was put on you to perform to fulfill the producer’s, or even your own labels expectations of you???
/ Isobella
Well, going back to when I started I initially got my confidence by what happened when I was starting out taking a music class, and at the audition I felt inspired. I knew my voice was good. When I was done they all just sat there….they didn’t know where to put me. Finally they decided to skip me ahead to the advanced classes, and they told me I was already singing at a professional level.
  / CWD
 Okay, so it’s obvious that you were having a bit of stage fright or the jitters at the first session…..so how did you get into the recording aspect in the first place? I mean, like what were the circumstances leading up to you finally getting to release that stratospheric voice of yours  and start realizing your potential???
/ Isobella
Well, taking the music class was just getting my feet wet. Like a baby step. At that point, even though I was very innocent to it all I knew I had something developing; especially because of the immediate reaction I got around that time when I had met a producer, Anthony of Riddem Factory. He liked my lyrics right off. Then he asked me to create a melody. I did. I was still rather uncertain of it all, but my confidence was boosted by friends in the neighborhood.
  / CWD
So your friends were like your cheerleaders??? They had heard you sing, maybe around the house, walking down the street, maybe doing some karaoke at a club or something???
 
/ Isobella
They knew how good my voice was, and told me, seriously; that I had to record my songs, and I saw that Anthony could see that my music captures the essence of feelings. As my lyrics present, but expressed without artifice, naturally. So they were right: it was time for me to make that first step.
  / CWD
So what happened with Anthony??
/ Isobella
Well he told me to come down and check out the whole deal with recording and how the whole process works Anyway, I went to the studio in Brooklyn. Another singer sang my song. I got to sing back up. It was named Lilac Tree, the singing being perhaps reminiscent to one of my early inspirations, the singer Nina Simone.
That day, wow; what an eye opener. I was in love with the whole process,  but I was into trying the song but with me singing. I was not going to leave without giving it a shot. Anthony picked up on my vibe, and I actually was told to come back in and sing. So I did. I had my hands holding on to the back of my jeans and broke the belt I was wearing. I went a little over the top….so obviously I wasn’t ready. But I was getting there…..
  / CWD
But this just made you all the more determined, am I right??? You must have seen that you just had to get that voice of yours under control when you have a million volts of electric adrenaline zipping through you… am I right???
/ Isobella
Oh yea. Like I put together a band around that time called DSI, which was a blast, but short lived. DSI???  It stood for Daniel Sketches Isobella
Anyway, my own voice was getting stronger and more refined, and I was doing a lot of work with it. I knew I could cut it….I thought to myself. “…Wait a minute! I can do this! …” Because it was all coming together.
  / CWD
Well of course…. mean: live is where it’s at. The dynamic of being center stage wth your own crew, no filter; standing right in front of a crowd, ……. wow !!! just feeling the energy, dealing with directing the sound of the band….it’ s the whole shebang, for real…. ha ha ha !!!
Plus the’s the feedback from others cats on the scene, checking out your band… making suggestions…the whole riff
/ Isobella
Oh yea….absolutely. And I was meeting many artists. Then something really big happened, I caught a break…
In the fall of 2016 I met another music artist. Bobby Craymer. I was helping him with videos and music promotions. That was the first time I sang for myself in the studio. It went well and opened a whole new door for me. My sound was good. I was inspired!! The CD called “Was it all a Dream?” came out. It won best pop electronica album for 2017.

Second Interview ( Part II )

“…… An Artist is A Dreamer Consenting to Dream of the Actual World …” 

    George Santayana

This Second Interview ( Part II ) with Isobella Caroline Boucher, attempts to find what steps she first took  into her current career, and to hepefully discover how she became a rsing phenomenon on the emerging Electronika / Trance / Interstellar Music Scene; and who was awarded Best Album/ CD of the Year 2018 in the Category of Electronica by Akademia Artists, and is now busy promoting her new CD “Secrets”, going even further into the uncharted realms of mesmeric Trance Dance and Interstellar Electronika Music
She is a Painter, an Actress, a Playwright, an International Indie Music Artist, and is also currently a Model in NYC where she resides, and is represented by the local agency Model Mayhem. I have already shared the fact that Isobella is fluent in the realms of dance, music, acting, painting and writing plays, in which she is also presently engaged in for her own Acting Guild, Spotlight Productions, as well as starring in the Gothic Horror Series “Providence”.
She first started her career by originating an all-encompassing expansion movement now entering what I have termed the Artistic World of Total Creative Expression.
At this time in this Second Interview I am asking her some backround questions and then more questions on some more topical issues dealing with her new CD titled “Secrets”, and what it is all about; which is a dangerous question indeed, as we will shortly see. !!!

  / CWD
You got into music through your love of dance…. a strange journey from Classical to Electroika and Trance….
What age did you start???  What were your areas of exploration ???
isobella caroline boucher 
 / Isobella
I would say to me, music and dance go together. Although , classical music was first introduced to me in ballet class at 8, it definitely was not the only music I listened to. I love all kinds of music, from classical to hard rock.
I first started ballet at ABT. I would practice down the basement after school daily. Then I went to Harkness Childrens School. After that, I studied at NDG, Martha Graham and Jennifer Muller “the works”. The most exciting was “Jennifer Muller the Works” because it was a very closed group of dancers, as I was an apprentice company dancer.
She taught us the art of exploration in movement in art.
I learned alot about music there actually. * To me, learning comes in the most unusal ways.  My venues opened up to many artists * music artists, since our class music was so unique and out of the ordinary  Taking the leap from classical dance to doing electronica trance music , is actually something I never thought of, in the difference of genre. I guess I liked it and found it easier to create that way. The beats and vocals. I find it more a matter of exploration. I was not raised playing piano. I had no interest. I wanted to dance!
So, doing music was and is a new venue of learning, exploration , and experimentation.
  / CWD

So you went into Dance starting with the classical forms…. studied ballet, then went and took modern dance …,,,expressive or interpretative dance…… was that what they called “Jazz” dancing, right ???

/ Isobella
Jazz today  is more Bob Fosse style , 1920’s avante guarde. Jazz is a style of dance. I would say, I was more into modern dance-which has a place of its own. Although I studied jazz, the distinction of modern is in a class of its own. Although during our interview, as that part was cut short. Alvin Ailey and their production of Carmen I was not familiar of. My first viewing of the ballet “Carmen” was with the NYC ballet. My mom took me and I fell more in love with ballet! My first love.
I also recall prior to this written interview you asked me a question on Barishnikov. Yes, he did teach some classes when I was in the Harkness Childrens School. I was so excited and honored. I was more in awe than anything to be taught by such a master .
  / CWD
 Whoa !!!  Misha…. wow !!!  Mikhail Baryshinikov…..   the legend…must have been right…hmmm…. so you were being taught by him waaaay after he defected to the West in…what year was it he left the Kirov. …1974???  Hmmm….  I could be wrong….
What did he say, “….The essence of all art is to have pleasure in giving pleasure…..” Baryshnikov
/ Isobella

 To be honest, I did not know when Barishnikov defected from Russia and yes it was many years after, decades. I really at that time, was very into learning dance and was blessed to have been around such gifted and idolic artists in the dance world. I never really looked up the history of dancers at that time because, I just , well was busy. I think I could look up when he defected now. I have no clue!

 With his statement. …He means the gift of the essence of art. The essence itself is a pleasure, as it is the joy of the dance. The joy of the movement and what it represents. To me , it is heavenly and beautiful and Barishnikov has given an over abundance of pleasure in his craft / art of dance …
With my music, I hope and wish  I give people pleasure when they hear my music . The same as it gives me pleasure to create it.  Yet not piece of my music gives me pleasure since some of my pieces are intense , emotional and abstract.
My music is what I hear in my heart and soul. It reflects music I have heard before and sounds I created myself. It is a mixing , blending of sounds and loops, and my own beats since I am creating electronica trance music. It is how I perceive emotions.
You had mentioned that you felt I believe music is an art not a science. I believe it is both. I was also taught in dance, dance is also a science as well as an art.  I feel those trachings reflect in my music. It is both.
  / CWD
 Well….you’ve definitely opened yourself up for this next question:.
What is it that you want to say in your music ? Or with your music ??  I mean…what message…what kind of impact are you trying to achieve in your art??
/ Isobella
I guess I want to say “Hi…I am here” in my music, meaning I am doing my own thing, my music.
You ask questions I do not usually think of. What is it that you want to say in your music?
  I think, I am saying I believe in love and emotions. I express my inner feelings thru music, thoughts , feelings that may not come out, unless in my music. It is also a very soulful thing. I believe we learn to grow as an individual when you do music or any art. You can’t fool yourself. When you create a song, it is you creating it. You must go thru the process of creating. Practice, create. Stop. Do it again until you start getting somewhere . A song. The same goes with lyrics. It is coming out of you. You become responsible to your creation, then you grow.
Music to me is a symbol of freedom. A way to express yourself. You can scream a song into a mic and not hurt anyone. In fact, after , you may give a listener pleasure. You sang your heart out!
We cant forget, lyrics are poems actually. Maybe I am singing my poetry. Music also is precious, its a way to capture that essence. The feelings of emotions we have inside and music lasts. A person can leave, change, fade away, but to sentimentalists. A song, you can return to, go back to the spot, linger in it, in a song. So music to me is part of me .
My impact and achieve. I never think of the impact to others, I am always surprised in all the responses I recieve that are so lovely about my music. I am.:) I just love creating music. It is a passion and a desire.
 Maybe my impact is I move people to follow their dreams. Try harder, experiment and practice. I believe life is an adventure , a mystery and beautiful. I just have that desire and it comes out in my music.
  / CWD
 Fair enough…if they want to find, then listen..carefully hmmmm….well, did not the Nazarence say “ Seek, and ye will find…”  a ha ha ha !!!!  There it is…  as you yourself would agree???
 Yes ??? No ????
/ Isobella
As my lyrics present those states and evoke those feelings…..
Asking me about that,  now it reminds me…. One song “Golden Street” on the C Tiara Hotel album…. always reminds me of New York City. The theater area. My dance school, ….doing music, acting; ……. anything artistic. That is why I called it the “Golden Street“.
  / CWD
 Right…I can see that…you….you’ve…captured   the essence…something…almost …  evanescent…hold it…isn’t that the name of a band ???   Ha ha ha !!!   Well…there you go….
Now you’re making me remember things !!!
/ Isobella

Thats good! So interviewing me on my music is making you remember other moments.

Actually, Evanescence is a great band. “Wake me up Inside“, is one of my favorite songs.  The lead singer has a gorgeous voice. I guess that is what music does to me.  Awakens me to all life is 🙂
  / CWD
Hold on…so what you are saying..by not really saying it…but what it means to have a heart…what goes with it….  teaching in your own mudsic what has come with that knowledge…that life has to be experienced….
Lived at a deep emotional level…not emotionalism, but the true states of being…  yes ??? True?
/ Isobella
Perhaps.:)
I can’t say teaching because my songs are my experiences that I feel or have felt, expressed in a song. Teaching , would be showing how. I don’ t see any of my songs as teaching, more like , actually I don’t have a word for that… What is in my heart comes out in my music.
  / CWD
Are you saying I talk about teaching too much???
/ Isobella
No. You are the interviewer, you have to talk and ask questions.
I am just answering them and enjoying this avante guarde interview on music. It is very touching and thought provoking.
  / CWD
I’m going to really say thank you by referring to this interview as “thought provoking” in that last statement !!!
 Now this is the end of Part II, next I want to get into this new CD of yours “Secrets” ….  which has already got…2100 listens ???
/ Isobella
Yes, it’s even got another review already…very complimentary….
You did a great job with this interview so far….. and I think you should write a bio about yourself so people know what a great writer you are, and add the links to your music
  / CWD
Well thank you very much….  I will add some stuff about me after we finish our Interview…thanks for the plug !!!
Not too many people know about my band Thee Unicorns…..  but plenty of people all over the world from South America to Sweden seem to know about you !!!!
(Secrets…to be continued in Part III)

Full-Speed Ahead for Our “Dictator-for-Life” ? Why Amphetamine Makes Donald Trump Believe He Can Get Away with Overthrowing the American Government and Installing Himself as Absolute Dictator: an Overview of Trumps Coming “Crash” | Measure 144 ~ Missive 377

Hope Hicks Admits President Trump Used Drugs

That Helped With ADHD

 Speed Kills: An Alarming Revelation:
 Why Donald Trump is Exhibiting Signs of Mental Collapse and Paranoia

Kurt Eichenwald, a contributing editor to Vanity Fair, as well as a New York Times bestselling author, said that hspoke with White House Communications Director Hope Hicks by telephone, and asked her about President Trump’s use of amphetamines.

Hope Hicks admitted that Trump used them, but said that he only took them for “a  few days”.

When Eichenwald said that records showed that he used them for eight years, Hicks then called him “a liberal” and hung up.

The question is, is Trump still using them? That would explain his changing and often erratic behavior.

Eichenwald was referring to an article published by Spy Magazine that exposed the practices of one of Trump’s personal doctors, Dr. Greenberg, who was giving him drugs for a ‘metabolic imbalance.’ That’s really a fancy way of saying Trump wanted a fat burner.

It was also published in biography Lost Tycoon by author Harry Hurt, that said the amphetamines prescribed to Trump contributed to “Donald’s mood swings” and “fits of distemper,” much like those expressed by people with ADHD.

Even though Trump wasn’t officially diagnosed with the learning disorder, it’s said that the amphetamines he took would give him focus and energy, helping to combat any mental fatigue expressed by ADHD.

“Donald was so delighted with the results that he started recommending Dr. Greenberg’s treatments to his brother Robert, various friends, and celebrity acquaintances such as Diana Ross.

The diet drugs, which he took in pill form, not only curbed his appetite but gave him a feeling of euphoria and unlimited energy. The medical literature warned that some potentially dangerous side effects could result from long-term usage; they included anxiety, insomnia, and delusions of grandeur.

According to several Trump Organization insiders, Donald exhibited all these ominous symptoms of diet drug usage, and then some.

’ The first thing I would do when I got to the office in the morning,” recalled one former vice-president, “was to go see Norma Foerderer and ask her,

‘Is this a Dr. Greenberg day?’

If she said yes, I would do everything I could to stay out of Donald’s way.’

The End of Democracy and the Beginning of the Madhouse of Trump

Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute

I’m not a fan of Communist China.

It’s a vicious totalitarian regime that routinely employs censorship, surveillance, and brutal police state tactics to intimidate its populace, maintain its power, and expand the largesse of its corporate elite.

Just recently, in fact, China – an economic and political powerhouse that owns more of America’s debt than any other country and is buying up American businesses across the spectrum – announced its plan to make its president, Xi Jinping, president for life.

President Trump jokingly thinks that’s a great idea.

Trump thinks the idea of having a president for life is so great, in fact, that America might want to move in that direction.

“Maybe we’ll have to give that a shot someday,” joked Trump.

The Bible of Trump: his personal copy of Mein Kampf, at which his bemused son Barron fixatedly stares is that hideous betrayal of America hidden in the Red Box

Here’s the thing: we already have a president for life.
Sure, the names and faces and parties have changed over the years, but really, when you drill down under the personalities and political theater, you’ll find that the changing names and faces are merely cosmetic: no matter who sits on the throne, the office of the president of the United States has, for all intents and purposes, become a unilateral power unto itself.
Although the Constitution invests the President with very specific, limited powers, in recent years, American presidents (Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc.) have claimed the power to completely and almost unilaterally alter the landscape of this country for good or for ill.
The powers amassed by each successive president through the negligence of Congress and the courts—powers which add up to a toolbox of terror for an imperial ruler—empower whomever occupies the Oval Office to act as a dictator, above the law and beyond any real accountability.

The presidency itself has become an imperial one with permanent powers.

As law professor William P. Marshall explains,
….“every extraordinary use of power by one President expands the availability of executive branch power for use by future Presidents.” Moreover, it doesn’t even matter whether other presidents have chosen not to take advantage of any particular power, because “it is a President’s action in using power, rather than forsaking its use, that has the precedential significance.
In other words, each successive president continues to add to his office’s list of extraordinary orders and directives, expanding the reach and power of the presidency and granting him- or herself near dictatorial powers.
So you see, we have been saddled with a “president for life”—i.e., a dictator for life—for some time now.

This abuse of presidential powers has been going on for so long that it has become the norm, the Constitution be damned.
The government of laws idealized by John Adams has fallen prey to a government of men.
As a result, we no longer have a system of checks and balances.

“…All of the imperial powers amassed by Barack Obama and George W. Bush—to kill American citizens without due process, to detain suspects indefinitely, to strip Americans of their citizenship rights, to carry out mass surveillance on Americans without probable cause, to suspend laws during wartime, to disregard laws with which he might disagree, to conduct secret wars and convene secret courts, to sanction torture, to sidestep the legislatures and courts with executive orders and signing statements, to direct the military to operate beyond the reach of the law, to operate a shadow government, and to act as a dictator and a tyrant, above the law and beyond any real accountability—were inherited by Donald Trump….”

These presidential powers—acquired through the use of executive orders, decrees, memorandums, proclamations, national security directives and legislative signing statements and which can be activated by any sitting president—enable past, president and future presidents to operate above the law and beyond the reach of the Constitution.
These are the powers that will be passed along to each successive heir to the Oval Office.
This is what you might call a stealthy, creeping, silent, slow-motion coup d’etat.

Donald Trump has already picked up where his predecessors left off: he has continued to wage war, he has continued to federalize the police, and he operates as if the Constitution does not apply to him.
As tempting as it may be to lay all the blame at Trump’s feet for the totalitarian state of the nation right now, remember that he didn’t create the police state.
He merely inherited it, along with the dictatorial powers of the presidency.
If we are to return to a constitutional presidency, we must recalibrate the balance of power.
As I make clear in my book “Battlefield America: The War on the American People“, the only thing that will save us now is a concerted, collective commitment to the Constitution’s principles of limited government, a system of checks and balances, and a recognition that they—the president, Congress, the courts, the military, the police, the technocrats and plutocrats and bureaucrats—answer to and are accountable to “we the people.”
As historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. points out,
Holding a President to strict accountability requires, first of all, a new attitude on the part of the American people toward their Presidents, or rather a return to the more skeptical attitude of earlier times: it requires, specifically, a decline in reverence… The age of the imperial presidency has produced the idea that run-of-the-mill politicians, brought by fortuity to the White House, must be treated thereafter as if they have become superior and perhaps godlike beings.”
Schlesinger continues:
“If the nation wants to work its way back to a constitutional presidency, there is only one way to begin. That is by showing Presidents that, when their closest associates place themselves above the law and the Constitution, such transgressions will be not forgiven or forgotten for the sake of the presidency but exposed and punished for the sake of the presidency.”
In other words, we’ve got to stop treating the president like a god and start making both the office of the president and the occupant play by the rules of the Constitution

Trump Didn’t Pay Porn Star Hush Money

— Because He Stiffed His Own Lawyer: Report

By @MargHartman

Michael Cohen, the real-life Barry Zuckerkorn. Photo: BRYAN R. SMITH/AFP/Getty Images

It appears President Trump may have dodged the consequences of one shady habit, conducting extramarital affairs, by indulging in another unscrupulous habit: refusing to pay his employees.

Last month Michael Cohen, President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, released a statement that seemed to suggest he paid Stephanie Clifford — a.k.a. Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claimed she had an affair with Trump – $130,000 of his own money right before the 2016 election. Supposedly, it had nothing to do with his boss.

“Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,” Cohen said.

Wall Street Journal report released on Monday suggests it’s possible Cohen wasn’t reimbursed for the payment — but not for lack of trying:

Mr. Cohen said he missed two deadlines earlier that month to make the $130,000 payment to Ms. Clifford because he couldn’t reach Mr. Trump in the hectic final days of the presidential campaign, the person said.

Ms. Clifford was owed the money in return for signing an agreement that bars her from discussing an alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump in 2006, people familiar with the matter said.

After Mr. Trump’s victory, Mr. Cohen complained to friends that he had yet to be reimbursed for the payment to Ms. Clifford, the people said.

In his carefully worded statement, Cohen said he used his own money to “facilitate” the payment to Clifford, and records show he set up an LLC in Delaware on October 17, 2016, to make the payment to her attorney.

While Cohen noted that he was not reimbursed by Trump’s business or campaign, he did not rule out the possibility that he was reimbursed by Trump personally.

The Journal also reported on Tuesday that First Republic Bank flagged Cohen’s transaction as suspicious and reported it to the Treasury Department. It’s not clear when that occurred, but it was previously reported that the bank used by Clifford’s attorney, City National Bank in Los Angeles, launched it own internal inquiry in September 2017.

The year-long lag is unusual, and suggests that the bank may have received more information about the transaction — possibly a subpoena or a visit from regulators. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team would not comment on whether it prompted the inquiry.

Cohen and Trump might have violated the law even if Cohen was just acting on his bosses’ presumed wishes, and still hasn’t been reimbursed. Mueller probe aside, Cohen’s payment could be seen as an illegal campaign donation if his intent was to shield Trump from the political fallout of a porn star going public with her tawdry tale of spanking and Shark Week viewings just before Election Day.

There’s no limit on what candidates can donate to their own campaign, but if Trump eventually paid Cohen back, he might have violated campaign-finance laws by failing to report it.

Experts say, however, that it’s unlikely Trump and Cohen would see serious penalties for the crime. (Former senator John Edwards was tried on similar crimes, but the jury was deadlocked on most charges.) On the other hand, the president’s attorney seems almost determined to make the situation worse.

How did the Republican Party became a dangerous cult?

Desperate to halt a terrifying tide of social transformation, the political heirs of Jim Crow flooded into the weak and nearly empty infrastructure of the Southern GOP. Men like Alabama’s Roy Moore and Texas’ Rick Perry were the last generation of white Southern men to begin their careers as Democrats.

The flight of millions of Dixiecrats into the GOP shifted the balance of power inside the party nationwide. Their fear-soaked, delusional fervor converted that institution from a conventional political party into a white nationalist cult.

The Party of Lincoln now exists to help Neo-Confederates win the Civil War politically, long after losing it on the battlefield.

Anyone evaluating Republican plans for tax policy, health care, climate change, immigration, or almost any other subject, will struggle to identify logical explanations for GOP positions.

Our politics has not always been so divorced from facts. It was possible to find room for logical arguments about the merits of Reagan’s 1981 tax cuts. There were logical arguments on both sides of the 1986 tax increases Reagan realized had become necessary. People engaged in rational disagreements over priorities and potential consequences of those plans based on facts and reason.

No such basis exists for Republican policies now, explaining the absence of efforts at bipartisan agreement. Support for GOP plans is premised on cult allegiance and enforced by cult loyalty. Unbelievers would be no more likely to support Republican tax plans than to drink poison to catch a ride on a spaceship.

By all accounts, the members of the Heaven’s Gate cult were nice people who avoided harming others.

They kept their sickness inside their ranks.

By contrast, Republicans are forcing an entire country, and to a certain extent the world, to choke down their poisoned applesauce.

It is possible to see in Marshall Applewhite a suffering soul, tormented by mental illness, who drew a small number of similarly troubled individuals into his fatal orbit (pardon the pun).

It is increasingly difficult to extend the same sympathy to nice people like Paul Ryan. We don’t look back at Pol Pot or Jefferson Davis as “troubled souls” because the scale of the harm they inflicted obscures any sympathy.

Those who survive the poison will one day look back on Republicans of this era with a similar disgust.

Chris Ladd, former GOP Precinct Committeeman, author of “The Politics of Crazy” and creator of PoliticalOrphans.

“…..On the night of March 23, 1997, Marshall Applewhite prepared to achieve his life’s mission. He had already supervised the successful “evacuation” of several followers. The leader of the Heaven’s Gate cult would be the last of the chosen few to join the alien spacecraft trailing the Hale-Bopp Comet speeding past the Earth.

As he mixed a lethal dose of phenobarbital into his apple sauce, did he experience doubt? Did he wonder whether his psychiatrists had been right? Maybe there were no aliens waiting to whisk him away. He had failed to uncover any empirical evidence to support his worldview.

Perhaps that was because his worldview was flawed and false. No, he probably ate his poison and slipped the bag over his head with a smile on his face.

Republican Roy Moore, removed from the Alabama Supreme Court for his erratic behavior and banned from the mall for harassing teenage girls, has cloaked his campaign for the Senate in the language of “spiritual warfare.”

As such, he is the most apt representative of the Republican Party in our age of cult politics.

Moore is pitching himself as God’s candidate and his voters are slopping it up like poisoned applesauce. The party of “family values” is about to send a known sexual predator to the Senate because God wants them to.

This would be startling, except they already used the same reasoning to put a known sexual predator in the White House.

The same magical reasoning infects Republicans tax reform plans. We are in the eighth year of continuous job growth, the eighth year of economic expansion, and the eighth year of a head-spinning stock market boom. Corporate profits are at record levels and the economy has been redlining at full-employment for almost three years.

By any marginally credible economic reasoning, this would be an ideal moment to raise taxes, curb debt, make investments in public infrastructure, and just generally do the things one does at the peak of a long economic expansion.

At this moment, why are Republicans trying to slash taxes for the wealthy? Why would someone castrate themselves and commit suicide? Because that’s what the cult demands.

There are no bright economic minds suggesting that this is a good idea.

There is no difference of opinion among sane, credible people about whether America needs a massive tax cut for the rich.

An effort by Republican leaders to claim support among economists devolved into unabashed lying.

One of the “economists” listed as a supporter, Gil Sylvia, has yet to be identified and may not even exist. When one of the president’s minions pitched this idiotic tax plan to a panel of American CEO’s – men who will be getting fat tax cuts – they balked. In public.

On camera. Director Cohn’s stunned response after soliciting their backing should be etched on the tombstone of the former Party of Lincoln, “Why aren’t the other hands up?

Cohn didn’t pause to hear their answer, because that isn’t how a cult works. Like a Soviet Commissar, he wasn’t soliciting feedback but measuring loyalty. He noted the disbelief of the apostates and simply moved on in righteous oblivion.

No reasoning accessible on the plane of logical thought supports this plan, just like no one outside the cult would ever let Roy Moore make decisions on their behalf.

Tax cuts, along with slashing government services, ending government support for health insurance, burning more coal, and a whole collection of other loony ideas, are now unconsidered articles of faith.

Republican Jesus wants a tax cut. The faithful will comply.

Nothing in traditional Republican thought made this descent into madness inevitable.

In fact, most of what passes for current Republican orthodoxy contradicts the party’s ideological heritage.

Just twenty-five years ago, when Roy Moore was trolling the sidelines at homecoming for sweet young things, he was a member of the Democratic Party.

At the same time, Elizabeth Warren was a Republican. Something happened, and it had nothing at all to do with the traditional priorities of the Republican or Democratic parties.

Countries experience moments like this from time to time. We are long overdue for such a crisis, as our last major partisan breakdown occurred in the 1850’s.

Rasputin: 1914

Faced with tumultuous cultural, technological and economic upheaval, political systems may find themselves bottlenecked, unable to keep pace with evolutionary demands. Parties and ideologies are contorted into strange shapes under the pressure of rapid transformation.

Communism, for example, began as a ruthlessly empirical, atheistic approach to politics and economics. Influenced by the turmoil of the 20th century and the urgency of revolutionary demands, it quickly took on the trappings of a fanatical religion.

By the time the Khmer Rouge unleashed their wave of slaughter on Cambodia, Communism had devolved into little more than ideological window dressing for a tribal death cult. Ideology does not constrain fanatics.

Our politics has not always been so divorced from facts. It was possible to find room for logical arguments about the merits of Reagan’s 1981 tax cuts.

There were logical arguments on both sides of the 1986 tax increases Reagan realized had become necessary. People engaged in rational disagreements over priorities and potential consequences of those plans based on facts and reason.

No such basis exists for Republican policies now, explaining the absence of efforts at bipartisan agreement. Support for GOP plans is premised on cult allegiance and enforced by cult loyalty. Unbelievers would be no more likely to support Republican tax plans than to drink poison to catch a ride on a spaceship.

By all accounts, the members of the Heaven’s Gate cult were nice people who avoided harming others. They kept their sickness inside their ranks.

“...By contrast, Republicans are forcing an entire country, and to a certain extent the world, to choke down their poisoned applesauce. It is possible to see in Marshall Applewhite a suffering soul, tormented by mental illness, who drew a small number of similarly troubled individuals into his fatal orbit (pardon the pun)…..”

It is increasingly difficult to extend the same sympathy to nice people like Paul Ryan.

We don’t look back at Pol Pot or Jefferson Davis as “troubled souls” because the scale of the harm they inflicted obscures any sympathy.

Those who survive the poison will one day look back on Republicans of this era with a similar disgust.

The End of Democracy and the Beginning of the Madhouse of Trump

Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute

I’m not a fan of Communist China.

It’s a vicious totalitarian regime that routinely employs censorship, surveillance, and brutal police state tactics to intimidate its populace, maintain its power, and expand the largesse of its corporate elite.

Just recently, in fact, China – an economic and political powerhouse that owns more of America’s debt than any other country and is buying up American businesses across the spectrum – announced its plan to make its president, Xi Jinping, president for life.

President Trump jokingly thinks that’s a great idea.
Trump thinks the idea of having a president for life is so great, in fact, that America might want to move in that direction.
“Maybe we’ll have to give that a shot someday,” joked Trump.

The Bible of Trump: his personal copy of Mein Kampf, at which his bemused son Barron fixatedly stares is that hideous betrayal of America hidden in the Red Box

Here’s the thing: we already have a president for life.
Sure, the names and faces and parties have changed over the years, but really, when you drill down under the personalities and political theater, you’ll find that the changing names and faces are merely cosmetic: no matter who sits on the throne, the office of the president of the United States has, for all intents and purposes, become a unilateral power unto itself.
Although the Constitution invests the President with very specific, limited powers, in recent years, American presidents (Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc.) have claimed the power to completely and almost unilaterally alter the landscape of this country for good or for ill.
The powers amassed by each successive president through the negligence of Congress and the courts—powers which add up to a toolbox of terror for an imperial ruler—empower whomever occupies the Oval Office to act as a dictator, above the law and beyond any real accountability.

The presidency itself has become an imperial one with permanent powers.

As law professor William P. Marshall explains,
….“every extraordinary use of power by one President expands the availability of executive branch power for use by future Presidents.” Moreover, it doesn’t even matter whether other presidents have chosen not to take advantage of any particular power, because “it is a President’s action in using power, rather than forsaking its use, that has the precedential significance.
In other words, each successive president continues to add to his office’s list of extraordinary orders and directives, expanding the reach and power of the presidency and granting him- or herself near dictatorial powers.
So you see, we have been saddled with a “president for life”—i.e., a dictator for life—for some time now.

This abuse of presidential powers has been going on for so long that it has become the norm, the Constitution be damned.
The government of laws idealized by John Adams has fallen prey to a government of men.
As a result, we no longer have a system of checks and balances.

“…All of the imperial powers amassed by Barack Obama and George W. Bush—to kill American citizens without due process, to detain suspects indefinitely, to strip Americans of their citizenship rights, to carry out mass surveillance on Americans without probable cause, to suspend laws during wartime, to disregard laws with which he might disagree, to conduct secret wars and convene secret courts, to sanction torture, to sidestep the legislatures and courts with executive orders and signing statements, to direct the military to operate beyond the reach of the law, to operate a shadow government, and to act as a dictator and a tyrant, above the law and beyond any real accountability—were inherited by Donald Trump….”

These presidential powers—acquired through the use of executive orders, decrees, memorandums, proclamations, national security directives and legislative signing statements and which can be activated by any sitting president—enable past, president and future presidents to operate above the law and beyond the reach of the Constitution.
These are the powers that will be passed along to each successive heir to the Oval Office.
This is what you might call a stealthy, creeping, silent, slow-motion coup d’etat.

Donald Trump has already picked up where his predecessors left off: he has continued to wage war, he has continued to federalize the police, and he operates as if the Constitution does not apply to him.
As tempting as it may be to lay all the blame at Trump’s feet for the totalitarian state of the nation right now, remember that he didn’t create the police state.
He merely inherited it, along with the dictatorial powers of the presidency.
If we are to return to a constitutional presidency, we must recalibrate the balance of power.
As I make clear in my book “Battlefield America: The War on the American People“, the only thing that will save us now is a concerted, collective commitment to the Constitution’s principles of limited government, a system of checks and balances, and a recognition that they—the president, Congress, the courts, the military, the police, the technocrats and plutocrats and bureaucrats—answer to and are accountable to “we the people.”
As historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. points out,
Holding a President to strict accountability requires, first of all, a new attitude on the part of the American people toward their Presidents, or rather a return to the more skeptical attitude of earlier times: it requires, specifically, a decline in reverence… The age of the imperial presidency has produced the idea that run-of-the-mill politicians, brought by fortuity to the White House, must be treated thereafter as if they have become superior and perhaps godlike beings.”
Schlesinger continues:
“If the nation wants to work its way back to a constitutional presidency, there is only one way to begin. That is by showing Presidents that, when their closest associates place themselves above the law and the Constitution, such transgressions will be not forgiven or forgotten for the sake of the presidency but exposed and punished for the sake of the presidency.”
In other words, we’ve got to stop treating the president like a god and start making both the office of the president and the occupant play by the rules of the Constitution

Trump Didn’t Pay Porn Star Hush Money

— Because He Stiffed His Own Lawyer: Report

By @MargHartman

It appears President Trump may have dodged the consequences of one shady habit, conducting extramarital affairs, by indulging in another unscrupulous habit: refusing to pay his employees.

Last month Michael Cohen, President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, released a statement that seemed to suggest he paid Stephanie Clifford — a.k.a. Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claimed she had an affair with Trump – $130,000 of his own money right before the 2016 election. Supposedly, it had nothing to do with his boss.

“Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,” Cohen said.

Wall Street Journal report released on Monday suggests it’s possible Cohen wasn’t reimbursed for the payment — but not for lack of trying:

Mr. Cohen said he missed two deadlines earlier that month to make the $130,000 payment to Ms. Clifford because he couldn’t reach Mr. Trump in the hectic final days of the presidential campaign, the person said.

Ms. Clifford was owed the money in return for signing an agreement that bars her from discussing an alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump in 2006, people familiar with the matter said.

After Mr. Trump’s victory, Mr. Cohen complained to friends that he had yet to be reimbursed for the payment to Ms. Clifford, the people said.

In his carefully worded statement, Cohen said he used his own money to “facilitate” the payment to Clifford, and records show he set up an LLC in Delaware on October 17, 2016, to make the payment to her attorney.

While Cohen noted that he was not reimbursed by Trump’s business or campaign, he did not rule out the possibility that he was reimbursed by Trump personally.

The Journal also reported on Tuesday that First Republic Bank flagged Cohen’s transaction as suspicious and reported it to the Treasury Department. It’s not clear when that occurred, but it was previously reported that the bank used by Clifford’s attorney, City National Bank in Los Angeles, launched it own internal inquiry in September 2017.

The year-long lag is unusual, and suggests that the bank may have received more information about the transaction — possibly a subpoena or a visit from regulators. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team would not comment on whether it prompted the inquiry.

Cohen and Trump might have violated the law even if Cohen was just acting on his bosses’ presumed wishes, and still hasn’t been reimbursed. Mueller probe aside, Cohen’s payment could be seen as an illegal campaign donation if his intent was to shield Trump from the political fallout of a porn star going public with her tawdry tale of spanking and Shark Week viewings just before Election Day.

There’s no limit on what candidates can donate to their own campaign, but if Trump eventually paid Cohen back, he might have violated campaign-finance laws by failing to report it.

Experts say, however, that it’s unlikely Trump and Cohen would see serious penalties for the crime. (Former senator John Edwards was tried on similar crimes, but the jury was deadlocked on most charges.) On the other hand, the president’s attorney seems almost determined to make the situation worse.

How did the Republican Party became a dangerous cult?

Desperate to halt a terrifying tide of social transformation, the political heirs of Jim Crow flooded into the weak and nearly empty infrastructure of the Southern GOP. Men like Alabama’s Roy Moore and Texas’ Rick Perry were the last generation of white Southern men to begin their careers as Democrats.

The flight of millions of Dixiecrats into the GOP shifted the balance of power inside the party nationwide. Their fear-soaked, delusional fervor converted that institution from a conventional political party into a white nationalist cult.

The Party of Lincoln now exists to help Neo-Confederates win the Civil War politically, long after losing it on the battlefield.

Anyone evaluating Republican plans for tax policy, health care, climate change, immigration, or almost any other subject, will struggle to identify logical explanations for GOP positions.

Our politics has not always been so divorced from facts. It was possible to find room for logical arguments about the merits of Reagan’s 1981 tax cuts. There were logical arguments on both sides of the 1986 tax increases Reagan realized had become necessary. People engaged in rational disagreements over priorities and potential consequences of those plans based on facts and reason.

No such basis exists for Republican policies now, explaining the absence of efforts at bipartisan agreement. Support for GOP plans is premised on cult allegiance and enforced by cult loyalty. Unbelievers would be no more likely to support Republican tax plans than to drink poison to catch a ride on a spaceship.

By all accounts, the members of the Heaven’s Gate cult were nice people who avoided harming others.

They kept their sickness inside their ranks.

By contrast, Republicans are forcing an entire country, and to a certain extent the world, to choke down their poisoned applesauce.

It is possible to see in Marshall Applewhite a suffering soul, tormented by mental illness, who drew a small number of similarly troubled individuals into his fatal orbit (pardon the pun).

It is increasingly difficult to extend the same sympathy to nice people like Paul Ryan. We don’t look back at Pol Pot or Jefferson Davis as “troubled souls” because the scale of the harm they inflicted obscures any sympathy.

As he mixed a lethal dose of phenobarbital into his apple sauce, did he experience doubt? Did he wonder whether his psychiatrists had been right? Maybe there were no aliens waiting to whisk him away. He had failed to uncover any empirical evidence to support his worldview.

How did the Republican Party became a dangerous cult? Desperate to halt a terrifying tide of social transformation, the political heirs of Jim Crow flooded into the weak and nearly empty infrastructure of the Southern GOP.

Men like Alabama’s Roy Moore and Texas’ Rick Perry were the last generation of white Southern men to begin their careers as Democrats.

The flight of millions of Dixiecrats into the GOP shifted the balance of power inside the party nationwide. Their fear-soaked, delusional fervor converted that institution from a conventional political party into a white nationalist cult. The Party of Lincoln now exists to help Neo-Confederates win the Civil War politically, long after losing it on the battlefield.

Anyone evaluating Republican plans for tax policy, health care, climate change, immigration, or almost any other subject, will struggle to identify logical explanations for GOP positions.

The Rebirth of Jim Crow: the reborn KKK and their Evil Racist Violent Shadow: The Rise of full Trumpery with Nazism in America

A Refresher Course

Trumpery derives from the Middle English trompery and ultimately from the Middle French tromper, meaning “to deceive.” (You can see the meaning of this root reflected in the French phrase trompe-l’oeil – literally, “deceives the eye“-which in English refers to a style of painting with photographically realistic detail.) 

Trumpery first appeared in English in the mid-15th century with the meanings “deceit or fraud” (a sense that is now obsolete) and “worthless nonsense.” Less than 100 years later, it was being applied to material objects of little or no value.

The verb phrase trump up means “to concoct with the intent to deceive,” but there is most likely no etymological connection between this phrase and trumpery.

“….The current investigation into Russian involvement in our election process is a perfect illustration of how the political climate obscures the truth.

The DNC rigged their own primary election in favor of their pre-selected candidate of choice, a corrupt corporate establishment puppet. Their covert strategy and secret agenda were revealed when an insider leaked emails from the DNC server. As a way to divert attention from the content of the emails, the DNC created a narrative involving Russian hackers, although no evidence to support the story was ever presented.

When the DNC lost the general election for a variety of reasons including the rigging of their primary, their fraudulent convention, their corrupt candidate, a sloppy campaign, and the alienation of their progressive base, they decided to use the fabricated Russian narrative as the reason for their failure.,,,”

Christopher Witt Diamant

“….During his presidential run in 2016 I watched in horror as Sanders character was continually smeared by the bought-and-paid-for Establishment Press as worthless, and others of the dead-on-it’s-feet National Enquirer school of Rabid Yellow Journalism as witless; that is all that remains of the Fourth Estate now almost totally defunct in America, due to its incremental silent takeover by the CIA, ( with an able assist by President Bill Clinton ), and put straight into the corrupt hands of 6 men cravenly bent on subverting free speech as plutocratic betrayers of the Public Trust and treasonous Guardians of the Public Weal, abandoning all principle to uphold as sacred all that was established in the 1st Amendment; as the craven and corporatist owners of virtually all Media and it’s outlets in the US…..”

Harvey Lewis

“…The Corporate Neo-Liberals supported by the corporate owned mainstream media have vigorously pursued the investigation into Russian involvement in our election process. Most Republicans who have been paying attention believe that the DNC-fabricated Russian narrative is political fiction.

Trump, however, has personal reasons for wanting to kill the story. Back when he was a businessman with no political aspirations, Trump developed deep business ties to Russia. During the recession, Russia was a viable source of funding for his hotels, golf courses, and other businesses.

You know those tax returns that Trump doesn’t want you to see? Those returns may have their own dirty little Russian stories to tell. If those stories were to go public, the Trump power trip would come to a screeching halt and the Republican Party would be swiftly kicked to the curb.

The American people continue to be divided by politics as the truth is hidden just below the surface. Tell me this: What are you waiting for?….

Christopher Witt Diamant

“…Over the last few years I have watched as the Independent Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont has been viciously attacked, his personal beliefs and spiritual concerns questioned and denigrated; as well as hearing him be described by Alex Jones and others like Thomas Hartmann as a “crazy communist”, or an amoral and ideologically bankrupt Marxist Jew who wants; in the mocking venomous words of Hillary Clinton; “…to give everyone a free pony..“, all because he dares to state that America should give healthcare to all of it’s people as a human right; just like every other developed and industrialized nation on earth already does.,,,”

Harvey Lewis

“….Are you waiting for impeachment?

Are you waiting for Trump’s tax returns?

Are you waiting for the FBI to find the evil Russians who stole our election?

Are you waiting for Bernie to rise from the Establishment graveyard and lead us to the Promised Land?

Are you waiting for Jesus to return and make Love cool again?

Breaking News: All roads lead back to you.

The political parties are not going to save your democracy for you. The FBI is not going to discover the truth for you. The Justice Department is not going to hold the corporate criminals accountable for you. And your savior is not going to teach you how to Love.

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

=========================================

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand,

Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

 

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

 

4And the King shall answer and say unto them,

“Verily I say unto you,

Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

==============================================================

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand,

Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

 

44 Then shall they also answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

 

45 Then shall he answer them, saying,

“..Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me…”

46 And these ( the goats at the left hand ) shall go away into everlasting punishment:

but the righteous ( the sheep at the right hand ) into life eternal.

German Newspaper Just Said

What Every Sane American Thinks of Trump

Let’s be honest right off the bat: Donald Trump is a terrible president. Oh, and he’s a terrible person. And you can throw in a terrible American, too.

And it seems that while things continue to deteriorate, the lines have already been drawn. Nothing Trump does or says at this point is going to change the minds of the hardcore Trump supporters. Meanwhile, the rest of America – the ones who are rational, thoughtful, and objective – are left shaking our heads.

As Trump continues to isolate the United States, however, the world has begun to weigh in. And one German newspaper has just said what every sane American already thinks about Trump. And folks, it’s brutal.

Der Spiegel just published an article calledA Danger to the World: It’s Time to Get Rid of Donald Trump.”

Here are some of the highlights:

“…Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States.

He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it.

He doesn’t read.

He doesn’t bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.

And with that opening, they capture the basic problem most Americans have with our criminal-in-chief. But it goes on:

He is a man free of morals.

As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump.

And one of the media’s tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly.

He is a danger to the world.

Trump is a miserable politician. He fired the FBI director simply because he could.

James Comey had gotten under his skin with his investigation into Trump’s confidants. Comey had also refused to swear loyalty and fealty to Trump and to abandon the investigation.

He had to go…..

Trump is also a miserable boss. His people invent excuses for him and lie on his behalf because they have to, but then Trump wakes up and posts tweets that contradict what they have said.

He doesn’t care that his spokesman, his secretary of state and his national security adviser had just denied that the president had handed Russia (of all countries) sensitive intelligence gleaned from Israel (of all countries).

Trump tweeted:

“…Yes, yes, I did, because I can. I’m president after all…..”

So, It Seems, Rather Strange, To Me, That The Only Types of Responses, We are Getting, From Our Fearless Leader, President Donald John Trump, After These Recent Disasters, Is; “There’s A Big Ocean Out There”, and Giving Himself, A Ten, For Being, The Greatest, at Paper Towel Tosses, To Dying, Puerto Rican, American Citizens.

Let That Sink In:

President Donald Trump, 
Just Happens, To Be Following, 
In The Footsteps, of His Predecessors, 
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, By Selling Billions of Dollars, In Weaponry, to The Royal Family, of Saudi Arabia.

As Saudi Arabia’s Royal Family, 
Continues To Bomb Yemen,

One of the Poorest Countries, In This World.

Making Selling Weapons of Mass Destruction In The Middle East, Part of His Strategic Plans, The Leaders of The Free World, Plans; to Make and Share Freedom Abroad, With The Rest of The World, As, Donald Trump Is Making This Country, America, Great, Again, By Maintaining and Keeping The American Political Establishment, Status Quo, Intact, By Keeping America In The #1 Position of Countries in The World That Sell Weapons of Mass Destruction, While President Donald Trump, Is Dreaming, That America, Can Be Great Again, By Growing The Mass Production of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Maintaining Americas, #1 Position, of Producing The Most, And Best Wartime Products, In The Industrialized World, For More Corporate Profits.

Commented:

Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in America.

Wanna know why?

Because he was crucified by his own party before he had the chance to run in the general election. That made him the martyr who would have saved us if only he hadn’t died at the hands of political corruption.

Now Bernie gets to hang out in the Democratic Party and bask in his mythology while the Party uses him as a lure to bring the disenfranchised progressives back into the fold. Don’t forget that Jesus was crucified for preaching Love. Now we tell stories about how he could turn water into wine and walk on the water. Every hero looks larger in the rear view mirror.

Have I offended you? Please let me know why in the comments below but only after you finish reading this article.

Are you offended because you still believe in Bernie? Are you are waiting for Bernie to convert the Corporate Neo-Liberals to his progressive ideals by working them from the inside?

Bernie told you that change happens from the bottom to the top. Corruption does not change from the inside out. The corruption will end when a greater vision becomes so popular that it rises up and dissolves everything unlike itself.

Are you offended because I compared Bernie to your personal savior? Let me remind you that Jesus did not ask to be your personal savior. That was your idea. Jesus said; “Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.”

Are waiting for the return of the Messiah? Maybe the real return of the Teacher is that moment when the disciples begin to live the teachings.

Perhaps there isn’t much difference between religion and politics. At the heart of every religion, you can find the principle of Love obscured by doctrine and dogma. Similarly, at the heart of every political movement, you can find the truth obscured by strategy and agenda.

In this era of tribal politics, we each have our affiliation that demands our blind obedience and serves to divide us into separate camps. As long as we remain divided, our democracy will continue to be an illusion of choice, unity will carry on as an unrequited dream and freedom will remain an unfulfilled promise.

The current investigation into Russian involvement in our election process is a perfect illustration of how the political climate obscures the truth.

Bernie Sanders and the Gospel of my Father Jesus:

Matthew 25:31-46 King James Version

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

=========================================

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand,

Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

 

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

 

4And the King shall answer and say unto them,

“Verily I say unto you,

Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

==============================================================

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand,

Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

 

44 Then shall they also answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

 

45 Then shall he answer them, saying,

“..Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me…”

46 And these ( the goats at the left hand ) shall go away into everlasting punishment:

but the righteous ( the sheep at the right hand ) into life eternal.

German Newspaper Just Said

What Every Sane American Thinks of Trump

Let’s be honest right off the bat: Donald Trump is a terrible president. Oh, and he’s a terrible person. And you can throw in a terrible American, too.

And it seems that while things continue to deteriorate, the lines have already been drawn. Nothing Trump does or says at this point is going to change the minds of the hardcore Trump supporters. Meanwhile, the rest of America – the ones who are rational, thoughtful, and objective – are left shaking our heads.

As Trump continues to isolate the United States, however, the world has begun to weigh in. And one German newspaper has just said what every sane American already thinks about Trump. And folks, it’s brutal.

Der Spiegel just published an article calledA Danger to the World: It’s Time to Get Rid of Donald Trump.”

Here are some of the highlights:

“…Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States.

He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it.

He doesn’t read.

He doesn’t bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.

And with that opening, they capture the basic problem most Americans have with our criminal-in-chief. But it goes on:

He is a man free of morals.

As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump.

And one of the media’s tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly.

He is a danger to the world.

Trump is a miserable politician. He fired the FBI director simply because he could.

James Comey had gotten under his skin with his investigation into Trump’s confidants. Comey had also refused to swear loyalty and fealty to Trump and to abandon the investigation.

He had to go…..

Trump is also a miserable boss. His people invent excuses for him and lie on his behalf because they have to, but then Trump wakes up and posts tweets that contradict what they have said.

He doesn’t care that his spokesman, his secretary of state and his national security adviser had just denied that the president had handed Russia (of all countries) sensitive intelligence gleaned from Israel (of all countries).

Trump tweeted:

“…Yes, yes, I did, because I can. I’m president after all…..”

The United States Defense Budget, Which, I’ve Been Told, Takes Over 50% of The Overall Budget and Is Growing, Constantly, Every Year, Has Been, and Is, Destroying the Lives of Millions of People, In the Middle East, Delivering, Depleted Uranium and Other Weapons, There, Thousands of Miles Away, from The United States; While Saving the Burning Homes of American Citizens in Southern California, Puerto Rico, and Other Locations in America, Seems To Be A Lofty, High and Mighty, Proposition, Since It Seems, That, There Isn’t Much or Any Monies Allocated in The Defense Budget, To Actually, Save American Citizens, In the Lands of America, in the Aftermath of Disasters, While Another $80 Billion Dollars, Is Being Added To The Defense Budget, Just This Year. So, It Seems, Rather Strange, To Me, That The Only Types of Responses, We are Getting, From Our Fearless Leader, President Donald John Trump, After These Recent Disasters, Is; “There’s A Big Ocean Out There”, and Giving Himself, A Ten, For Being, The Greatest, at Paper Towel Tosses, To Dying, Puerto Rican, American Citizens.

Let That Sink In:

President Donald Trump, 
Just Happens, To Be Following, 
In The Footsteps, of His Predecessors, 
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, By Selling Billions of Dollars, In Weaponry, to The Royal Family, of Saudi Arabia.

As Saudi Arabia’s Royal Family, 
Continues To Bomb Yemen,

One of the Poorest Countries, In This World.

Making Selling Weapons of Mass Destruction In The Middle East, Part of His Strategic Plans, The Leaders of The Free World, Plans; to Make and Share Freedom Abroad, With The Rest of The World, As, Donald Trump Is Making This Country, America, Great, Again, By Maintaining and Keeping The American Political Establishment, Status Quo, Intact, By Keeping America In The #1 Position of Countries in The World That Sell Weapons of Mass Destruction, While President Donald Trump, Is Dreaming, That America, Can Be Great Again, By Growing The Mass Production of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Maintaining Americas, #1 Position, of Producing The Most, And Best Wartime Products, In The Industrialized World, For More Corporate Profits.

America Needs To Have Other Stockpiles of Bombs and Weapons In That Region of The World, We Just Can’t Run Out of Bombs Again, Like We Did When We Dropped, 26,000 Bombs on the Country of Syria, Suffering, Under The Dictates, of Who, American’s are Told, is The Syrian Dictator Assad, That was Elected With 80% per cent of The Syrian Citizens Vote. We Just Don’t Happen to Know, For Sure, if Those Elections, Were Rigged Or Not, Like, They May Have Been Rigged, Here In America, The Land of the Free, and The Home of The Brave.

Commented:

Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in America.

Wanna know why?

Because he was crucified by his own party before he had the chance to run in the general election. That made him the martyr who would have saved us if only he hadn’t died at the hands of political corruption.

Now Bernie gets to hang out in the Democratic Party and bask in his mythology while the Party uses him as a lure to bring the disenfranchised progressives back into the fold. Don’t forget that Jesus was crucified for preaching Love. Now we tell stories about how he could turn water into wine and walk on the water. Every hero looks larger in the rear view mirror.

Have I offended you? Please let me know why in the comments below but only after you finish reading this article.

Are you offended because you still believe in Bernie? Are you are waiting for Bernie to convert the Corporate Neo-Liberals to his progressive ideals by working them from the inside?

Bernie told you that change happens from the bottom to the top. Corruption does not change from the inside out. The corruption will end when a greater vision becomes so popular that it rises up and dissolves everything unlike itself.

Are you offended because I compared Bernie to your personal savior? Let me remind you that Jesus did not ask to be your personal savior. That was your idea. Jesus said; “Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.”

Are waiting for the return of the Messiah? Maybe the real return of the Teacher is that moment when the disciples begin to live the teachings.

Perhaps there isn’t much difference between religion and politics. At the heart of every religion, you can find the principle of Love obscured by doctrine and dogma. Similarly, at the heart of every political movement, you can find the truth obscured by strategy and agenda.

In this era of tribal politics, we each have our affiliation that demands our blind obedience and serves to divide us into separate camps. As long as we remain divided, our democracy will continue to be an illusion of choice, unity will carry on as an unrequited dream and freedom will remain an unfulfilled promise.

The current investigation into Russian involvement in our election process is a perfect illustration of how the political climate obscures the truth.

The DNC rigged their own primary election in favor of their pre-selected candidate of choice, a corrupt corporate establishment puppet. Their covert strategy and secret agenda were revealed when an insider leaked emails from the DNC server. As a way to divert attention from the content of the emails, the DNC created a narrative involving Russian hackers, although no evidence to support the story was ever presented.

When the DNC lost the general election for a variety of reasons including the rigging of their primary, their fraudulent convention, their corrupt candidate, a sloppy campaign, and the alienation of their progressive base, they decided to use the fabricated Russian narrative as the reason for their failure.

The Corporate Neo-Liberals supported by the corporate owned mainstream media have vigorously pursued the investigation into Russian involvement in our election process. Most Republicans who have been paying attention believe that the DNC-fabricated Russian narrative is political fiction.

Trump, however, has personal reasons for wanting to kill the story. Back when he was a businessman with no political aspirations, Trump developed deep business ties to Russia. During the recession, Russia was a viable source of funding for his hotels, golf courses, and other businesses.

You know those tax returns that Trump doesn’t want you to see? Those returns may have their own dirty little Russian stories to tell. If those stories were to go public, the Trump power trip would come to a screeching halt and the Republican Party would be swiftly kicked to the curb.

The American people continue to be divided by politics as the truth is hidden just below the surface. Tell me this: What are you waiting for?

Are you waiting for impeachment? Are you waiting for Trump’s tax returns? Are you waiting for the FBI to find the evil Russians who stole our election? Are you waiting for Bernie to rise from the Establishment graveyard and lead us to the Promised Land? Are you waiting for Jesus to return and make Love cool again?

Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.

The Rebirth of Jim Crow: the reborn KKK and their Evil Racist Violent Shadow: The Rise of full Trumpery with Nazism in America

 

Trumpery derives from the Middle English trompery and ultimately from the Middle French tromper, meaning “to deceive.” (You can see the meaning of this root reflected in the French phrase trompe-l’oeil – literally, “deceives the eye“-which in English refers to a style of painting with photographically realistic detail.) 

Trumpery first appeared in English in the mid-15th century with the meanings “deceit or fraud” (a sense that is now obsolete) and “worthless nonsense.” Less than 100 years later, it was being applied to material objects of little or no value.

The verb phrase trump up means “to concoct with the intent to deceive,” but there is most likely no etymological connection between this phrase and trumpery.

The political parties are not going to save your democracy for you. The FBI is not going to discover the truth for you. The Justice Department is not going to hold the corporate criminals accountable for you. And your savior is not going to teach you how to Love.

This is the good news. You have the power to claim your freedom, save your democracy, establish unity, and demand justice for all….”

 

“…Greater works than these, you, too, shall do…..”

Bernie Sanders and the Gospel of my Father Jesus:

Matthew 25:31-46 King James Version

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

=========================================

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand,

Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

 

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

 

4And the King shall answer and say unto them,

“Verily I say unto you,

Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

==============================================================

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand,

Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

 

44 Then shall they also answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

 

45 Then shall he answer them, saying,

“..Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me…”

46 And these ( the goats at the left hand ) shall go away into everlasting punishment:

but the righteous ( the sheep at the right hand ) into life eternal.

German Newspaper Just Said

What Every Sane American Thinks of Trump

Let’s be honest right off the bat: Donald Trump is a terrible president. Oh, and he’s a terrible person. And you can throw in a terrible American, too.

And it seems that while things continue to deteriorate, the lines have already been drawn. Nothing Trump does or says at this point is going to change the minds of the hardcore Trump supporters. Meanwhile, the rest of America – the ones who are rational, thoughtful, and objective – are left shaking our heads.

As Trump continues to isolate the United States, however, the world has begun to weigh in. And one German newspaper has just said what every sane American already thinks about Trump. And folks, it’s brutal.

Der Spiegel just published an article calledA Danger to the World: It’s Time to Get Rid of Donald Trump.”

Here are some of the highlights:

“…Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States.

He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it.

He doesn’t read.

He doesn’t bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.

And with that opening, they capture the basic problem most Americans have with our criminal-in-chief. But it goes on:

He is a man free of morals.

As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump.

And one of the media’s tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly.

He is a danger to the world.

Trump is a miserable politician. He fired the FBI director simply because he could.

James Comey had gotten under his skin with his investigation into Trump’s confidants. Comey had also refused to swear loyalty and fealty to Trump and to abandon the investigation.

He had to go…..

Trump is also a miserable boss. His people invent excuses for him and lie on his behalf because they have to, but then Trump wakes up and posts tweets that contradict what they have said.

He doesn’t care that his spokesman, his secretary of state and his national security adviser had just denied that the president had handed Russia (of all countries) sensitive intelligence gleaned from Israel (of all countries).

Trump tweeted:

“…Yes, yes, I did, because I can. I’m president after all…..”

The United States Defense Budget, Which, I’ve Been Told, Takes Over 50% of The Overall Budget and Is Growing, Constantly, Every Year, Has Been, and Is, Destroying the Lives of Millions of People, In the Middle East, Delivering, Depleted Uranium and Other Weapons, There, Thousands of Miles Away, from The United States; While Saving the Burning Homes of American Citizens in Southern California, Puerto Rico, and Other Locations in America, Seems To Be A Lofty, High and Mighty, Proposition, Since It Seems, That, There Isn’t Much or Any Monies Allocated in The Defense Budget, To Actually, Save American Citizens, In the Lands of America, in the Aftermath of Disasters, While Another $80 Billion Dollars, Is Being Added To The Defense Budget, Just This Year. So, It Seems, Rather Strange, To Me, That The Only Types of Responses, We are Getting, From Our Fearless Leader, President Donald John Trump, After These Recent Disasters, Is; “There’s A Big Ocean Out There”, and Giving Himself, A Ten, For Being, The Greatest, at Paper Towel Tosses, To Dying, Puerto Rican, American Citizens.

Let That Sink In:

President Donald Trump, 
Just Happens, To Be Following, 
In The Footsteps, of His Predecessors, 
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, By Selling Billions of Dollars, In Weaponry, to The Royal Family, of Saudi Arabia.

As Saudi Arabia’s Royal Family, 
Continues To Bomb Yemen,

One of the Poorest Countries, In This World.

Making Selling Weapons of Mass Destruction In The Middle East, Part of His Strategic Plans, The Leaders of The Free World, Plans; to Make and Share Freedom Abroad, With The Rest of The World, As, Donald Trump Is Making This Country, America, Great, Again, By Maintaining and Keeping The American Political Establishment, Status Quo, Intact, By Keeping America In The #1 Position of Countries in The World That Sell Weapons of Mass Destruction, While President Donald Trump, Is Dreaming, That America, Can Be Great Again, By Growing The Mass Production of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Maintaining Americas, #1 Position, of Producing The Most, And Best Wartime Products, In The Industrialized World, For More Corporate Profits.

America Needs To Have Other Stockpiles of Bombs and Weapons In That Region of The World, We Just Can’t Run Out of Bombs Again, Like We Did When We Dropped, 26,000 Bombs on the Country of Syria, Suffering, Under The Dictates, of Who, American’s are Told, is The Syrian Dictator Assad, That was Elected With 80% per cent of The Syrian Citizens Vote. We Just Don’t Happen to Know, For Sure, if Those Elections, Were Rigged Or Not, Like, They May Have Been Rigged, Here In America, The Land of the Free, and The Home of The Brave.

Commented:

Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in America.

Wanna know why?

Because he was crucified by his own party before he had the chance to run in the general election. That made him the martyr who would have saved us if only he hadn’t died at the hands of political corruption.

Now Bernie gets to hang out in the Democratic Party and bask in his mythology while the Party uses him as a lure to bring the disenfranchised progressives back into the fold. Don’t forget that Jesus was crucified for preaching Love. Now we tell stories about how he could turn water into wine and walk on the water. Every hero looks larger in the rear view mirror.

Have I offended you? Please let me know why in the comments below but only after you finish reading this article.

Are you offended because you still believe in Bernie? Are you are waiting for Bernie to convert the Corporate Neo-Liberals to his progressive ideals by working them from the inside?

Bernie told you that change happens from the bottom to the top. Corruption does not change from the inside out. The corruption will end when a greater vision becomes so popular that it rises up and dissolves everything unlike itself.

Are you offended because I compared Bernie to your personal savior? Let me remind you that Jesus did not ask to be your personal savior. That was your idea. Jesus said; “Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.”

Are waiting for the return of the Messiah? Maybe the real return of the Teacher is that moment when the disciples begin to live the teachings.

Perhaps there isn’t much difference between religion and politics. At the heart of every religion, you can find the principle of Love obscured by doctrine and dogma. Similarly, at the heart of every political movement, you can find the truth obscured by strategy and agenda.

In this era of tribal politics, we each have our affiliation that demands our blind obedience and serves to divide us into separate camps. As long as we remain divided, our democracy will continue to be an illusion of choice, unity will carry on as an unrequited dream and freedom will remain an unfulfilled promise.

The current investigation into Russian involvement in our election process is a perfect illustration of how the political climate obscures the truth.

The DNC rigged their own primary election in favor of their pre-selected candidate of choice, a corrupt corporate establishment puppet. Their covert strategy and secret agenda were revealed when an insider leaked emails from the DNC server. As a way to divert attention from the content of the emails, the DNC created a narrative involving Russian hackers, although no evidence to support the story was ever presented.

When the DNC lost the general election for a variety of reasons including the rigging of their primary, their fraudulent convention, their corrupt candidate, a sloppy campaign, and the alienation of their progressive base, they decided to use the fabricated Russian narrative as the reason for their failure.

The Corporate Neo-Liberals supported by the corporate owned mainstream media have vigorously pursued the investigation into Russian involvement in our election process. Most Republicans who have been paying attention believe that the DNC-fabricated Russian narrative is political fiction.

Trump, however, has personal reasons for wanting to kill the story. Back when he was a businessman with no political aspirations, Trump developed deep business ties to Russia. During the recession, Russia was a viable source of funding for his hotels, golf courses, and other businesses.

You know those tax returns that Trump doesn’t want you to see? Those returns may have their own dirty little Russian stories to tell. If those stories were to go public, the Trump power trip would come to a screeching halt and the Republican Party would be swiftly kicked to the curb.

The American people continue to be divided by politics as the truth is hidden just below the surface. Tell me this: What are you waiting for?

Are you waiting for impeachment? Are you waiting for Trump’s tax returns? Are you waiting for the FBI to find the evil Russians who stole our election? Are you waiting for Bernie to rise from the Establishment graveyard and lead us to the Promised Land? Are you waiting for Jesus to return and make Love cool again?
