Judges, Juries and Shotguns

Trumpean Language and Attitudes

It doesn’t take long for the news cycle to bite its own ass. You see, we must quickly move on. We are driven to get that next story on the air or on the front page. Our country demands the speedy dissemination of information. The strong, wise people who started this enterprise known as the United States of America were driven to emulate what they left in England, where people find truth every day by reading newspapers.  We should be thankful that America was founded by a bunch of writers. Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and even George Washington loved to write and see their words printed on paper.

We have a headline writer in the White House. You may have heard his name, Donald Trump. He never bothers to illuminate his “fan base.” He wants them to see only the bullet points. He places policy or opinion, lie or fantasy, into 280-character blasts and blows them out to the world on the internet. He’s a fourteen-year-old boy sitting on his toilet believing he rules the world. He knows that words matter, but he cares not if they are true.

The cable news channels can talk endlessly about President Trump’s next pick for the Supreme Court, but that institution has already done their damage. Think Citizen’s United, cake maker, union busting and travel ban. Regardless of the imperfect concept of the Supreme Court, we must follow them. But the real test coming up is whether, when challenged by an aggressive “executive,” will they give him more power, or curb the blatant abuse?

No one ever claimed that our system of a President appointing justices for life was a good idea, but what is happening in America is clearly the opposite of what people say it is. Here’s what I mean. We claim to have no bias in our institutions, but they are all biased. I can say that on “moral convictions” I cannot support Donald J. Trump, but I can’t stop paying my taxes because of that “conviction.” They would come and arrest me.

Now we have another shooting in Annapolis, Maryland at the newsroom of a local daily newspaper. Five people died. We don’t know whether the ongoing legal battle and grievances the shooter had with the newspaper were the primary drama, but this writer wonders out loud if the ongoing language of the President didn’t add some fuel to the shooter’s desire to cause harm. After all, if the Free Press is “the enemy of the people,” as Trump shouts at his rallies, could that be justification for an attack? Has the Donald figured out a way to brainwash our most mentally vulnerable citizens? Hey, he did win the election.

When this killer is brought before a jury, will they see him as a willful actor in a passion play of revenge? Will the judge manage a fair trial? As many mass shooters await their day in trial, do we go back and tell their stories? Does the press give us a clear reason why someone would commit such a terrible crime, or do these shootings simply fade with time?

One of the issues that the Supreme Court might decide in their future sessions is the death penalty. We have heard Donald Trump call for the death penalty for drug dealers. He seems to think that executions are good. What a guy, huh?

In 1989, Trump took out a full-page ad in a newspaper in New York to urge the state to bring back the death penalty and execute the “Central Park Five.” It turned out that those falsely accused and incarnated men were innocent. They were set free after DNA evidence proved they didn’t commit the crime. This is an excellent reason why Donald Trump should be as far away as possible from deciding our laws. Our Great Orange Leader is no more qualified to pick judges than he is to be President.

The good news? Trump didn’t personally create the list of potential Justices. Some of the most conservative judicial review people have assembled a group of those judges who can clear an FBI investigation and please the far-right evangelicals. I am sure their decisions will be vetted and determined if they are of sound judicial mind, or not.

The reason those evangelical “holy” men give Trump a pass on pussy grabbing and lying is because they believe this is their chance to make abortions illegal again, to get the Lord’s prayer back in our schools and to eradicate all gay rights. The puritans are in charge and Trump is manipulating them for votes. In our dysfunctional society, the minorities are ruling the majority. The White House is a disgrace to the founding fathers.

With this latest shooting, we will once again go through the drill of finding out where and how the shooter got his weapon. We will mourn the five newspaper employees gunned down at work. We will talk about their wonderful lives, loves and families., We might implement better security at the nation’s newspapers and TV newsrooms, but we will do nothing about guns and mental health. Remember, even the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris had a security door.

We will probably learn that innocent people died because of what they wrote and published. Five innocent men spent more than a decade in prison because of the hate and rancor of people like Donald Trump. Five Supreme Court Justices will determine the laws of our land. Perhaps a lifelong court appointment should be decided by more than a president. If only Congress was up to the task of rejecting judges who carry with them political memberships that affect their decisions. They will not go against this President. He has bullied them into submission or resignation.

When the founding fathers defined our system up on paper, there were NO political parties or far left or right agendas. There existed only the American agenda. The sooner we get rid of Donald Trump, the faster we will get back to a real America being truly fair for all agendas.

A POST PARKLAND PRESIDENT

Trump Trips Over an Opportunity

President Donald Trump attempted to shame Congressional leaders in a White House meeting by saying they are afraid of the National Rifle Association. He ranted about how strange it was that an 18-year-old could buy an assault rifle, but not a handgun until he turned 21. He boasted that he had instructed his Attorney General to investigate executing a ban on “bum stocks” a device that turns a semi-automatic firearm into an automatic killing machine. That device was used in Las Vegas during the largest American mass shooting. It’s important to point out that the tragedy happened more than five months ago.

The President has done little. Congress has passed an omnibus bill, a catch all of budget funds, that had some “school safety” money in it, but they haven’t addressed any of the fundamental issues. A casual observer might suggest that the NRA got to Trump and turned him around. The NRA controls Congress and if they don’t act, nothing substantial gets done.

The student protest last weekend (3-24-2018) took place in Washington, DC and cities all over the country and the world. But the old white guys in Washington missed the reality that these protestors are feeding the voter rolls. The youth of the nation has taken up a cause to march for their own lives.

When Donald Trump was shown pictures of Syrian children being gassed, he dropped a couple of bombs within days. I guess no one showed him the pictures of American kids in classrooms lying in their own blood. Maybe someone should confront him with those images. Maybe that could break the spell the NRA has cast over all those with power in Washington. This organization claims their root origins are rifle and gun safety, but their rhetoric is political and ideological. The organization is no longer just a lobbyist. They are, in-effect, a political action committee with guns.

One could ask a simple question. If President Trump cares so much about going after radical terrorism in America – in the name of Mexican cartel gangs – why is it so easy for them to get assault weapons? The NRA fights hard to thwart any gun control, meaning they are complicit with arming the bad guys. Can’t our governmental leaders see that?

I had the pleasure of going to one of the many rallies (Sarasota, FL) and was totally impressed with the young people who spoke. Many of the people I heard graduated from Stoneman Douglas High School, had friends who attended the school or were just kids with a strong message. These are fresh and honest voices who understand the game. They know who is responsible in Washington for their lack of action. This isn’t Pollyanna optimism.

The messaging of the one million student marchers was consistent. It was as if a schooled marketing expert had guided the way, or maybe these kids are experts. They learned social media techniques from a very early age and they used those skills to bring masses of protesters together. They also know that they have to change the system, or at least the people who rule, to get what they want.

And what exactly do they want? First, safe schools. That is a non-partisan issue. Then more gun controls. They want the age limit raised to 21-years of age for gun ownership. They talked about universal background checks, which, from this writer’s perspective, means a national database. Those words make a certain organization nervous.

When kids cheer, “Hey, Hey, NRA, how many kids did you kill today?” they get the clenched fists and jaws of the NRA. And they get Fox News with blowhards saying that they are somehow part of a left-wing conspiracy. That is not going to deter these young thinkers. They have figured out that gun violence is the problem. Even Sir Paul McCartney marched in New York. He pointed out that one of his best friends was killed by gun violence. You might remember him, John Lennon.

Trump was presented an opportunity to unite one demographic group here, and he blew it. The message that was sent must have been written by the weekend communications intern. It read: “We applaud the many courageous young Americans exercising their First Amendment rights today. Keeping our children safe is a top priority of the President’s.”

Yes, this is the moment you realize that no one is steering this ship and a person named Lindsay Walters, White House spokeswoman, was the only connective tissue between the issue and the President, who was busy playing golf. Donald Trump doesn’t care about gun law reform. He’s another do nothing President.

After Trump’s dinner with the NRA, he sold his soul and the lives of thousands of students in America by trying to please a group he believes controls his base. As we walked from the protest last weekend with our signs, a large truck came around the bend and I could see the NRA sticker in the window. The driver leaned out and yelled, “You fucking idiots!” Then it dawned on me. There are millions of NRA members who fear their guns will be taken away. These are the Trump people.

According to the Celebrity Net Worth website, the CEO of the NRA, Wayne LaPierre, is worth $10 million and his annual take averages around $1 million but has been as high as $5 million. So, he’s not only protecting guns, he’s guarding a sizable income. Think about it. He makes more money than the President of the United States. The NRA is the opposing force to getting better laws and systems for gun regulation.

If Trump would have watched the TV coverage of the marches, he would have seen the crowds were much bigger than his inauguration. The President should realize that many of these kids will be voting in 2020. If he has any serious desire to get re-elected, he should have responded with a little more gravitas and meaning than the plastic drivel of that canned statement. Maybe he was thinking more about a porn star, a bunny and a singer than the safety of Americans in our schools.

Donald Trump has deeply sunken in his own swamp. He is complicit and proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is a con man politician looking out only for himself. In the end, this New York political boss will get richer from being President because he’s changing laws to benefit himself and his family. His attempt to become an American oligarch must be foiled, now.

ONE TRICK TRUMP

He’s Never Going to Stop Running

Back in the early days of William Randolph Hearst, he used his newspapers to pick winners and demean people he didn’t like. This became glorified by the term Yellow Journalism; presenting little or no legitimate well-researched news but rather using eye-catching headlines, exaggerated news events, scandal-mongering and sensationalism for increased newspaper sales.

Today, the implication of the opposite is the term “Fake News,” which is the slogan people in power now use to denigrate the news media they do not agree with or to slam stories they want the journalists to ignore. We see Trump playing this one trick when in the three-ringed circus of the campaign trail. If Trump keeps pitching for President, he will never convince any thinking person that he is a “real” president.

Steve Mnuchin told Chuck Todd that one cannot take things the President says at a campaign rally too seriously. Mnuchin bristled when Todd suggested that the press should maybe not cover these rally events. Todd failed to mention in this discourse with the Secretary of the Treasury what Trump said in Pittsburgh the night before. Speaking about NBC’s “Meet the Press, a show now headed by Sleepy-Eyes Chuck Todd. He is a sleeping son-of-a-bitch, I’ll tell you!”

There are some who say, “Oh, this is Trump being Trump,” while others are quick to criticize the President no matter what he says. His jokes are mean spirited and negative. What is really at stake is the presidency as a respected part of American culture. We have a clown with a face full of makeup, sniffling his way through speeches with either a teleprompter to make him seem normal, or endless, unguarded extemporaneous political babbling and childish putdowns that make him a small man exploiting his power without regard for leadership qualities.

Trump’s disregard for the spirit of the First Amendment is part of this one trick pony he rides. His censure of the press in general terms is an attempt to dismiss any controversy, misstep or criminal activity in his administration. He hangs on the phrase “No Collusion” like a man who has something to hide.

The First Amendment must be protected from Trump’s rhetoric and quest to weaken a free press. His demigod approach to the executive branch of the government needs to be checked at every step. His little moves will add up and must be analyzed by a free press.

Trump’s Sunday morning, tweets instead of Church “executive time” gave us this: “The Failing New York Times purposely wrote a false story stating that I am unhappy with my legal team on the Russia case and am going to add another lawyer to help out. Wrong. I am VERY happy with my lawyers, John Dowd, Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow. They are doing a great job and have shown conclusively that there was no Collusion with Russia… just excuse for losing. The only Collusion was that done by the DNC, the Democrats and Crooked Hillary. The writer of the story, Maggie Haberman, a Hillary flunky, knows nothing about me and is not given access.”

The fact that Trump cannot let go of this issue shows that he doesn’t believe in his innocence. Like many people with a “martyr” complex, the Donald has a need to constantly slam the past. He positions himself against those who came before to get “credit” for anything good that happens, while taking no responsibility for anything his team may have done that didn’t work or, worse, was illegal. He seems to be worried more about historical positioning the future and comparisons with the past.

Trump may not even realize that he shows signs of being a white nationalist apologizer. Perhaps he is not smart enough to realize that his messaging makes it seem like being black in America equals guilt. Most importantly, his ideological way of viewing everything from trade to the environment to the legal system will have to repaired by the next president. Trump has clearly made America less great. I would advance that Donald J. Trump has hurt America with his ignorance and bad judgment.

This President of the United States is a bad role model for our children. His need to debase people and spread hate diminishes the advancements we have made as a society. Donald Trump is the prime cause of our national divide. His lack of desire or ability to bring people together is a fact right there for everyone to see. Some, however, want to believe what they require to believe. They have joined the lie and are complicit. When the money they think they are going to get doesn’t arrive, who will they blame then? Trump will be long gone.

THE MATH FREE PRESIDENT

Trump Doesn’t Understand Economics

Carlo Pietro Giovanni Guglielmo Tebaldo Ponzi had as many names as he had schemes to bilk people out of their money. You probably know him as Charles Ponzi and, yes, the “Ponzi Scheme” was named after him. Many of Donald Trump’s fiscal moves can be traced back to this famous Italian conman.

Let’s mix in some words here from Plato’s character Phaedrus. “Things are not always what they seem. The first appearance deceives many. The intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden.” If just one person had seriously questioned Mr. Ponzi early on, he would have never been able to get away with his plot to defraud people out of their life savings. Sooner or later, someone must pay up.

Plato also warned us that we shouldn’t judge a person, or an idea based on what we first think. We can go from 400 B.C. (Plato), to the 1900s (Ponzi), to 2008 (Bernie Madoff), to 2016 (Donald Trump) and see con artists trying to convince us that we are going to benefit from their special ruses.

One of Trump’ tricks is a spontaneous burst of an opinion during one of his rallies that then gets baked into his routine, that then becomes policy. The game of chance that this man is playing with the world-wide economy is treacherous.

Donald Trump probably had a difficult discussion with someone on his team who disagreed with him on his tariff ideas. He caught everyone else in the White House off guard by blurting out his decree in a meeting. Without any details, he simply peed on the tree to claim ownership of his turf on this subject. He said, in a forceful kind of disagreeable manner, that the United States would be placing a 25% tariff on steel and a 10% fee on aluminum. And the stock market freaked out.

Rather than weighing the pros and cons to develop a logical argument for doing this now, when the Fed is about to raise interest rates, and explaining his position to the American public, Trump just blasted out his new “plan,” which seems devoid of any sane rationale.

Much like your drunk Uncle, who sits on the front porch railing against all our products coming from other countries, there is little desire by the Donald to understand how and WHY this has happened. Rather than trying to change a worldwide economic trend with a RULE, Mr. President, why not know the side effects of your “remedies” before making everyone in the country swallow your bitter pill? It’s ironic that the cure for the “rest of the world taking advantage of us in trade” is a rule. Deregulating has taken on this “for us only” status. Strange.

Forcing protectionism on the rest of the world might make Donald Trump feel good personally, but if it leads to trade wars we will all have to pay. Consider Trump’s “clean coal.” It’s a chemical myth to help an industry of 51,000 workers when wind energy is already supporting 100,000 jobs in the renewable fuel industry. Then there’s the Donald’s plan to protect 100,000 steel jobs, while hundreds of thousands of building projects will have to cut jobs to pay for the increased cost of metals. America doesn’t make enough steel and aluminum to provide resources for all the ongoing projects. And while we scramble to build and reopen plants, the President’s measures plunge us into inflationary turmoil.

The weekend brought early sparks of a retaliatory trade war with the European Union’s discussions of taxes of their own. Then Trump tweeted: “If the E.U. wants to further increase their already massive tariffs and barriers on U.S. companies doing business there, we will simply apply a Tax on their Cars which freely pour into the U.S. They make it impossible for our cars (and more) to sell there. Big trade imbalance!”

Once again, our President has decided he knows best and his actions will make everything cost more. And who must pay more? The people Trump and Congress just awarded a big tax cut will now get to pay more for everything we buy.

Donald J. Trump doesn’t know anything about economics. He’s the big orange kid who has been living in a bubble his whole life. He talks with other rich men who breathe that same uninformed air of how economies work. Trump is in violation of one of the most important aspects of our economic model. Like a balloon, pushing too hard on one side will force a change on the other. When you make changes, you should do so gradually, measure whatever fallout takes place and then make appropriate adjustments.

What Donald Trump has miscalculated is that no one in the world respects him or cares about his insane attitudes and beliefs. They won’t even blink when given the opportunity to make him look bad. The will add tariffs to make it harder for him to bully them. And when Trump has his next corporate CEO meeting at the White House, those white-collar, button-down leaders will have no problem explaining it all to him. In their minds, this will be a rich payback for all the tough love they have received from their public board of directors. Payback is a bitch, Donnie.

Ponzi was an unbelievable scheme, but people fell for it. Bernie Madoff was able to trick the richest people in New York. And Donald Trump is still fooling 35% of the country. The bad news is all of us will have to pay for his Trade War, while he will continue to promise more unbelievable benefits.

NEGLECT, THE NRA & NEO-NAZIS

The Complicit President

One of the great miscalculations of the decade came from the gun-suckers at the National Rifle Association during the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference. They heavily miscalculated their message and, unfortunately for America, our sitting President is equally tone-deaf. This post may get me on two enemies lists for the price of one, but it seems like there is a wind blowing and the updraft from the heat and sorrow of death is lifting opinions.

The NRA must surely be wondering why their messaging hit such a sour note in Maryland last week. Like most shows, a comedian warmed up the audience so that the star had an audience primed and ready for the headliner. Ms. Dana Loesch said, “Many in legacy media love mass shootings. You guys love it. I’m not saying you love the tragedy. But I am saying that you love the ratings. Crying white mothers are ratings gold… And notice I said crying white mothers because there are thousands of grieving black mothers in Chicago every weekend and you don’t see town halls for them, do you?”

With that statement, Loesch sparked a tweetstorm from people all over the United States. Some might say it was insensitive to make those remarks within 24-hours of the CNN Town Hall with survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School tragedy, but the words were more than obtuse. They were an example of the numbing reality that the NRA’s tactics are not caring, open or helpful. They sensed, for the first time, that people were coming for them in the dead of night with torches. They overreacted.

Their leader, Wayne LaPierre, has a famous slug-line, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun.” He marched into the room and attempted to present the NRA as a solid front and to reaffirm himself as the puppeteer pulling the strings of Congress and our President. The leader of the NRA misconstrued some of the basic points of his association’s existence. Yes, of course, the National Rifle Association is a registered lobbyist, but they want to be more. And it wasn’t more than seconds before Donald Trump was parroting the points that LaPierre was making on stage at CPAC.

What disturbed many corporate leaders was not only the divisive rhetoric of Dana Loesch, but the highly-charged words of LaPierre. He advanced a political attack that sounded like Germany rhetoric from 1939. And if you think words don’t matter, consider this: Anti-Semitic incidents in the United States soared by 57 percent in 2017, according to a new report from the Anti-Defamation League. That’s the largest single-year increase in more than two decades. There was an 86 percent rise in vandalism.

Wayne’s world protects 100 million-gun owners by getting money from five million members. There are companies who believe that supporting the NRA is good business. I don’t understand why Delta Airlines, Hertz Rent a Car and other companies thought that offering discounts to NRA members was a good idea. Do they offer discounts to Super PACs or other lobbyist members?

The NRA damaged their brand with those two speeches and, of course, proved the point the high school students were making. With LaPierre saying that the “European Socialists” were controlling the minds of the masses, he was sending a message that anyone who confronts the NRA is politically bad for America. He sounded like a politician running for office.

The speech reeked of Neo-Nazi messaging. And while the CEO of the NRA was defending his cause he had no idea that Nikolas Cruz, the shooter in Parkland, Florida, etched swastikas in his ammunition magazines. Oops!

In 2015, Dylann Roof confessed to murdering nine African Americans at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, one of 40 states not requiring background checks for private gun transactions. In clear sight on the internet, Roof espoused racial hatred. Photographs there showed him posing with emblems associated with white supremacy. He had also been arrested. He beat the system.

When a reformed Neo-Nazi appeared on CBS’ 60 Minutes trying to motivate others from getting sucked into the group, Dylann Roof sent him a letter from prison that read: “I know you won’t be, but you really should be ashamed of yourself. Traitor, you’ve really cashed in, haven’t you? I hope you know that you are 100 times worse than the Jews you’ve surrounded yourself with.” No repent there.

And with the death of a woman in Charlottesville, Virginia, during a Unite the Right rally, it was clear that a statement from the President would have helped the situation. Rather than denounce this bullshit, Donald Trump gave a convolved message of “fine people on both sides.” He advanced anti-political correctness rather than calling out Neo-Nazis. He worried about a Robert E. Lee statue more than America.

Donald Trump, through stupidity or complicity, has not created a strong message against the KKK, Nazis, White Nationalist and other terror groups operating in America. The NRA fights any effort to track gun owners, so it’s impossible to know names and locations of the bad guys. And much of Congress shakes in their boots when it comes to the NRA. Nothing happens, and not only is Trump complicit but he has neglected his duty to keep us safe.

The voice of the Florida students and the corporate boycotts will alarm companies who would rather not be involved in politics. This time the NRA veered off course and made a wide turn away from the Second Amendment. With LaPierre critiquing other facets of government and society, he struck a hateful Trumpian tone. CEOs and boards of directors are nervous. Good use of social media this time!

Wayne LaPierre doesn’t have the credibility to talk about leaks in the intelligence community, media bias or universities he claims are spearheading a socialist revolution by emphasizing the teachings of Karl Marx. He added that America was trending toward a “growing socialist state.” Adolf Hitler was against Karl Marx as well and said, “Our adopted term ‘Socialist’ has nothing to do with Marxian Socialism. Marxism is anti-property; true socialism is not.”

The Nazis adopted a new gun law in 1938, allowing Non-Jews to buy rifles, shotguns and ammunition. Handguns were also easy to own, buy, sell or carry. Local officials could even allow people under the age of 18 to buy a gun. Gee, how did that work out? Lots of crazy brown-shirted kids killing Jews.

Saying that anything which challenges their power is somehow connected to European Socialism and Karl Marx, has not only blurred the message of the NRA but has left trouble and blood on their hands.

The NRA has failed to understand America. When people suggest true universal background checks on gun purchases, they aren’t talking about Karl Marx. They are talking about Making America Safe Again. In the bigger picture, the smart people in the United States with knowledge of history are hearing exactly what the NRA is saying, “You cannot fuck with us.” As our President has said, “We will see.”

ARMED EDUCATORS

Trump’s Dangerous Demonic Deal

When constructing a sentence, our President often sounds as if he’s pitching an idea or suggesting an action. It’s not just James Comey who thought that he was getting an order from Trump. I am sure this happens to people in the administration all the time. It has to do with clarity.

During the extremely intense meeting with survivors of mass shootings the other day at the White House, Donald Trump, packed with notes and suggested comments, listened intently until the end. This is when he wanted everyone to know what idea he was most impressed with. He said, “Our concept and your idea about — it’s called concealed carry — and it only works where you have people very adept at using firearms, of which you have many, and it would be teachers and coaches. They’d go for special training.  And they would be there, and you would no longer have a gun-free zone.   A gun-free zone to a maniac — because they’re all cowards — a gun-free zone is, let’s go in and let’s attack, because bullets aren’t coming back at us.”

He also used the phrase, “We’re going to be looking at it very strongly.” And with this, the whole country started a discussion based on what Trump said at the meeting. This is a common theme with our President. During the campaign, he talked a lot about San Bernardino and Paris and he kept proselytizing a notion that an active shooter situation cannot be solved without bullets going back the other way. It’s an interesting turn of a phase that evokes a visual of ammo zipping in two directions through the air.

As the nation was trying to digest his concept, one that the National Rifle Association has talked about for years, he seemed to put on the brakes and blast out a defensive tweet: “I never said “give teachers guns” like was stated on Fake News @CNN & @NBC. What I said was to look at the possibility of giving “concealed guns to gun adept teachers with military or special training experience – only the best 20% of teachers, a lot, would now be able to immediately fire back if a savage sicko came to a school with bad intentions. Highly trained teachers would also serve as a deterrent to the cowards that do this. Far more assets at much less cost than guards. A “gun free” school is a magnet for bad people. ATTACKS WOULD END!”

I am not sure what is going on, but this sounds like someone suffering from dual personality syndrome. And talks about this being an “offense” measure, surely that would be a defensive measure, right Donald? Now if you are starting to believe that Trump was taking on the NRA, don’t get your hopes up. He’s not going to give back the $30 million they spent to help him win the election. It didn’t take very long before the Donald was back on Twitter showing his true colors: “What many people don’t understand, or don’t want to understand, is that Wayne, Chris and the folks who work so hard at the @NRA are Great People and Great American Patriots. They love our Country and will do the right thing.”  

Sure, we all get it Mr. President. The next shooter somehow figures out how to get into a school, starts to shoot the place up, and the 20% of our trained teachers with “concealed weapons” run to where they hear the AR-15 blasting and engage the shooter. Sounds like a plan, but what if there is more than one shooter? What if the next time the lunatics use a bomb? These people are terrorists and should be countered with tactical police forces and SWAT. What I believe is a shooter who is CRAZY and NUTS, like everyone is saying, either won’t know or won’t care which school has a couple of teacher-cops. The reason the Cruz kid picked Stoneman Douglas is because they expelled him, and he was a very disturbed kid. Donald Trump, your premise is totally wrong.

Hijackers are NOT discouraged because there might be an Air Marshall onboard, they are deterred by a very active logical TSA inspection. If properly executed, it’s impossible to get a bomb or gun onboard an airplane. Sure, we need to make every school safer, but the 2019 budget doesn’t provide enough money for mental health services and better doors and security procedures at all schools. You might want to move some money from the military to education so that you can properly protect the homeland.

And are these armed teachers going to have to buy their own guns, Mr. President, like they currently must buy supplies and equipment for the students out their own pockets? And will there be a database of background checks on the teachers? Will the parents get to know if they have any mental illness or criminal records? Gee, now we must make sure that the teacher is ready to kill someone. Do they have to take an oath?  And then, Trump says they should get a bonus for carrying a gun. Boy, if you don’t pack a gun you make less money, is that fair?

Trump says that if a shooter knows teachers are armed, they will think twice about attacking a specific school, really? That idea wasn’t even dry before Trump decries the use of the term “active shooter” drills. So, Mr. Know-it-all-President, which is it? Are we making a child nervous about knowing their mean teacher has a gun, or preparing them for the possibility of a shooter? They know about shooters, that’s all over the TV.

The deal the President is making with the devil can only be portrayed as clinical insanity. Let’s see, to end gun violence we need to mix in some more guns. What the President is saying is exactly what the NRA has been saying for more than a decade. The National Rifle Association is talking like a right-wing political organization, rather than a collection of gun owners. They are the tool of the manufacturers of guns and each Congress person they give money to is their bitch.

As we add more guns, more accidents will happen. We won’t be safer. Even if you could imagine every teacher and administrator having a gun, we learned today that even a good guy with a gun in Parkland (on-campus officer) stood outside while a bad gun with a gun was killing our children. Are you really basing your whole unproven theory on a few pistols defending against AR-15s? Why wouldn’t Trump know this? I guess he gets all his advice by the very people who are creating the problem.

BANG, BANG, YOU’RE DEAD

An Open Letter to High School Students of America

As an America more than five times your age, I come to you with some advice and I urge you to listen. In my life, I was opposed to the Vietnam war. My friends and fellow students were being sent 7,400 miles to fight a war we hardly understood. Some of my friends were killed. It was obvious that my government didn’t understand what we felt. History has revealed the lies and illegal actions of the “adults” running the United States of America during that dark time. It was a bi-partisan effort to kill us.

You have been awakened by a demonic tragedy and the misuse of a lethal weapon. You are joining hands and marching and chanting. You want to make a difference. We are with you. We care about you. We cry for you. We will march with you. We understand what you are saying. Wisdom of the past will help you. Learn about civil disobedience and your right to peacefully assemble. This isn’t going to be easy.

To end the Vietnam war, we had to expose the lies. We needed help from the free press and, in some cases, brave whistle-blowers with valuable documents like the Pentagon Papers. Google it. We had to see blood being spilled on the nightly news and middle America had to understand that these were “our boys” who were bleeding in the jungles. Your classroom floors will be cleaned, but you will never forget the terror you experienced. You need to bring that horror to the public. They need to understand what happened. As macabre and disrespectful as some might think, pictures of bloody bodies would make Congress wake up and start talking about solutions.

Next, I want you to know that the NRA and pro-gun factions in this great nation of ours will see you as the enemy. They will come after you and they will attack you. They won’t be using guns; they will be using propaganda. They will do research on you and your parents, and they will disclose connections to anything that even hints at “left-wing radical” associations. They will claim that you are being funded by Democratic Super PACs and you will hear the name George Soros. Do not listen to these talking heads on TV. They are not your friends. They will be attacking your cause célèbre and the fact that you have a platform; you have a voice. Do not get sucked into their nonsense.

If you start to make inroads in your quest to get gun regulations, they will attack you on very personal levels. They will circulate rumors about your sex life, they will put you on an enemy list, they will infiltrate your schools and try to get other students to rally against you. It’s an old playbook and I am simply reading a few pages from it. You will hear the term, “outside agitators,” which is code for linking you to some communist left-winged group. Do not stray from your message.

The NRA is a very powerful lobbyist group and they will pour money into defeating you. Be careful when they say they want to meet with you. And be extremely on guard when it comes to Donald Trump. He will tell you he is open to review and modification of the gun laws. He will suggest that he is “evolving” on the issue. He will even issue a memo to his Attorney General to “look into” whether “bump stocks” are legal, while he uses executive order to push almost a million dreamers to the edge of panic. He waited four and half months after the Las Vegas shooting to write his memo. Score a D- for him.

In the end, Trump will listen to the gun hawks and will walk away from you when the story dies. He already left behind the dead bodies in Las Vegas, Texas and the other killing fields. Donald Trump is not your friend. He will use you to placate moderate Republicans. Donald Trump is not an inadequate President, he’s an inadequate person.

You need to learn the terms of the Second Amendment and their importance to the far right in America. They will continue to let you die to save this sentence: A well -regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Now let’s talk about the March 24, 2018 march on Washington you are planning. Get as many people as you can to attend this event and don’t worry about who will promote it. You know how to use the internet and social media to motivate people.  Do it! You also need to think about giving marchers advice on where to stay and how to get around once there. Get the National Park people to help you. That’s their job. They did it for Martin Luther King, Jr. and they did it for the Million Man March and they did it for right wing groups. They are there for you. And be sure to read up on other rallies and protests in the Capitol, here.

And finally, you must continually state your goal. You must be extremely clear in what you are demanding. An 18-year-old kid can’t buy a beer or a hand-gun but can buy an AR-15 (semi-automatic rifle) and you must change the laws. You must not waiver. If we got Nixon to end the Vietnam War, you surely can motivate a bunch of old white guys to listen. If they don’t, vote them out. Just stay the course, there will be many of them to vote out.

POLITICIZING & PANDERING

Trump’s Blame Game of Negativity

Donald J Trump continues to make himself the “issue” rather than being a leader. When Trump is being Trump, he energizes the opposition. His lack of political intelligence is stunning in so many ways. He is given opportunity after opportunity to demonstrate leadership qualities to unite the country, but he is unable to escape from his braggadocio and blunders. He chooses to politicize and pander rather than step up and become a president. He lives in a world of cheap put-downs, conspiracy theories and fraudulent excuses.

It was said that the President didn’t play golf this weekend out of respect for the students who were killed at Parkland’s Stoneman Douglas High School. But in his idle time, he disrespected America with more than 13 tweets that blamed most of all that is happening on everyone but the Russians. In his rants, there were no plans for prevention of Russian interference in the future and no additional punishments for what the Russians did to manipulate the election results. The man is impotent on Russia.

The new marching orders from the Great Orange Leader say there was “no collusion” with the Trump campaign and what the Russians did had no effect on the election. That interpretation of the 37-page indictment seems conclusive and self-serving.

We all know that this isn’t the end of the investigation, right? The Donald blamed Obama for his lack of action on the matter, but the indictment makes it clear that the illegal acts were focused on the 2016 election. In fact, it mentions the last election almost 20 times. And the sanctions Congress passed almost unanimously haven’t been launched against the evil Putin. Why is the White House not acting?

Trump, accusing the FBI of being too busy on the Russian investigation to act on signs that the shooter in Florida was ready to execute students, displayed one of his most shallow political actions. Through the Twitter Trump, we see the unfiltered, mean and manipulative man who thinks that everyone is out to get him. The tweets show his insecurity and fear of the Mueller investigation. He knows something.

Some people aren’t seeing the clues in the indictment. Back in June 2017, the Texas edition of The Patch ran a story that talked about a San Antonio-based digital operation overseen by senior White House adviser Jared Kushner and how it was under increased scrutiny.

According to Federal Election Commission filings in a story here, the web design and digital marketing company that Brad Parscale owns received more than $91 million from the Trump campaign and was in cahoots with one of Trump’s Super PACs. Brad Parscale joined the Trump Campaign and ran something they referred to as Project Alamo, which was covered in a 60 Minutes piece after Trump won the election. You can watch what they did here.

Paragraph 31 of the Federal indictment of 13 Russian nationals claims that the defendants and their co-conspirators, posing as U.S. persons, communicated with real U.S. persons affiliated with a Texas-based grassroots organization. Could this organization be Parscale’s company? Could this be the breadcrumb that leads to the future indictment of Jared Kushner?

Trump knows what Kushner and Parscale did and is doing everything he can to keep up the illusion that his campaign and administration owes nothing to the Russians. They did nothing nefarious to get him elected. It’s probably true that because of Trump’s complicated banking arrangements and because he rarely gets into detail, he may have no idea how much of his personal finances are intertwined with Russian oligarchs’ monies. He may have gotten dirty money along the way, but we will never know because he hasn’t released his tax returns.

Trump’s tweets of today (2-19-2018), about Oprah Winfrey’s appearance on 60 Minutes, seem motivated by some people on that program being negative about the President. Donald Trump suffers from a grand illusion that everyone must love him. He attacks anyone who speaks their mind about his negative actions, deeds and words. I am sure he felt Oprah didn’t do a good job standing up for him. Trump’s frame of mind is totally transparent. He’s afraid he’s going to be found out.

America must now come together about what Russia has done and figure out a way to move Trump off his cock-blocking of the charge against Russia. It’s time to do something about the cyber-attack of a foreign power. If the mainstream media wants to get beyond the Donald’s blatant manipulation of the narrative, they must deepen the investigation of what happened. What actions are being taken? It’s time to connect the dots.

A Russian company organized a propaganda effort to change the outcome of our election and, while doing so, used stolen American identities to conduct fraud. There should be a screaming alarm going off in the White House. The failure to acknowledge this indictment indicates that no siren has been triggered.

The net result of Trump’s pandering to his base on this issue is making red state Republicans feel that Russian interference was not a big deal. Can this really be happening? From wife-beaters in the White House, to another horrible shooting, to the attempts to blame the FBI for all his problems, Donald J. Trump is NOT a real President.

On this President’s Day, I confess with grave concern that we have the most dangerous president ever. If he isn’t stopped, Trump will absolutely make America less great. He is damaging our country and democracy. We must remain strong, however, because getting rid of him will cause more violence in America. After watching the Oprah Winfrey focus group on 60 Minutes, it’s clear that Trump supporters have been brainwashed like the good comrades he wants them to be.

CAMO and AMMO

What Money Buys in America

A very funny writer named Lewis Grizzard wrote for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. As a true southerner, he used to say, “First, we really don’t care how you did it in Chicago. Second, if you miss it so much, Delta is ready when you are.” So, when we hear someone from somewhere else try to tell us how things are, we Americans tend to get a bit riled. As a transplanted Yankee in the South, the late, great Lewis still makes me laugh.

We all know what is going on here. One of the most powerful lobbyists in America is the National Rifle Association. It’s strange that in America one can buy a “rifle” when they are young and not fully developed mentally, but they cannot buy a pistol. Yeah, see, the “Rifle” part in the N.R.A. is what we are protecting here. Because we need to have these long guns to protect the nation from a take-over by the deep state, a dark force some believe will soon be coming to take our guns away.

Now I have a writer friend from Great Britain, who claims to know everything about anything, and every once in awhile he proves it to me. After reading our post of 2-15-2018, THAT HOLLOW FEELING, AGAIN, he dashed off a note to me with some facts from across the pond:

“The United States has the highest number of guns per 100 inhabitants than ANY OTHER COUNTRY ON EARTH! 101 guns per one hundred persons. Compare that to the UK, which has 6.6 guns per one hundred persons.

Why compare it to the UK? Because, as you will learn, as things got worse with gun violence, their lawmakers redefined their laws. There might be a lesson here. 

As CNN wrote: “In the wake of the 1987 Hungerford massacre, in which one lone gunman killed 16 people, Britain introduced new legislation — the Firearms (Amendment) Act 1988 — making registration mandatory for owning shotguns and banning semi-automatic and pump-action weapons.

After the only school massacre that took place in the United Kingdom (16 children were killed in Dunblane, Scotland in 1996), they cracked down on guns – and banned handguns altogether. The Dunblane shooter fitted the same profile as Nikolas Cruz, the latest killer in Florida. But rather than blame mental health, our British allies tackled the issue head on.

Within a year and a half of the Dunblane massacre, UK lawmakers had passed a ban on the private ownership of all handguns in mainland Britain, giving the country some of the toughest anti-gun legislation in the world. After both shootings there were firearm amnesties across the UK, resulting in the surrender of thousands of firearms and rounds of ammunition.”

We thank our friend for his facts and figures, but this banning of weapons is exactly what the hard-core Camo and Ammo hunters in the US fear. When Obama was president, gun sales soared because of a rumor that the first African President was coming to take all the guns away. We must keep an open mind here. After all, things are getting worse not better. More facts from our friend:

“Britain has never had a “gun culture” like that of the United States, but there were about 200,000 legally-registered handguns in Britain before the ban, most owned by sports shooters. All small-bore pistols, including the .22 caliber, were included in the ban, along with rifles used by target shooters. Penalties for anyone found in possession of illegal firearms range from heavy fines to prison terms of up to ten years.

Did this draconian action have any impact? Well, here’s the sobering (and, to the NRA, very inconvenient) FACT: You are 45 times more likely to be killed by a gun in the US than in the UK. In the US, we have 10.55-gun deaths per 100,000 people per year, while in the UK only 0.23-gun deaths per 100,000 people per year.”

Now it’s easy to say that banning gun ownership will never work here, and you can go back to Cleveland, or Chicago or Scratchy Bottom, Dorset Maybe we should be looking at how other places handled this problem. We certainly are doing a lousy job of it.

We hear a dishonorable slogan after a shooting, “Now is not the time” as in, “now is not the time to talk about a problem until we get over the grief and sorrow of a terrible shooting.” Really? Must the emotion be drained from the moment, so we can collectively forget about it? Doesn’t the lack of action confirm a lack of care?

Or is it a simple fact that the politicians have been bought by the N.R.A. and nothing is exactly what they are supposed to do? Donald Trump doesn’t help the matter at all. He does three things that make matters worse:

  • He constantly pushes a notion of a deep-state that somehow makes it necessary to remain paranoid about defending democracy from some invisible tyrant.
  • He aligns himself with hate and promotes fear and negativity at every turn. Most of what he says tells us how bad things were or are and that he is there to fix it. He plays with the feeble minds ready to snap and fight back. However, these unstable people fight back by killing.
  • He promotes guns and, therefore, lethal force. By demanding that we have a large arsenal of weapons to protect our country, he glorifies the need to have guns. He equates weaponry with strength and those who feel weak in the system have been given permission to have weapons and ammo.

So, we must vote against the N.R.A. at the ballot box and change things for the better in America. Why are we letting guns get in the way of our safety and happiness? If Donald Trump and Congress fail to act on this issue, they are making America less safe. And one could argue, not honoring the oath of office they took. Throw the bums out!

THAT HOLLOW FEELING, AGAIN

Three Hundred Million Reasons Why

If God is all powerful, then everything that happens is part of his plan. When something horrific happens, we ask why a madman did this to us. We never ask God why he permitted this act against humanity to occur. We grant another killer free will, while we pray to a force that, once again, couldn’t stop the carnage.

And this is what we got from Donald Trump on Twitter, his personal way to depersonalize the pain for those Americans most affected: “My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting. No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school.”

It’s always amazing to me how most two-bit politician can say what we shouldn’t have, but rarely tells the truth about what we should do. In the old days, a President would go on TV immediately, face the nation and give us some hope in our darkest hour. This poor excuse of a president just doesn’t have it. Perhaps he’s not intelligent enough to handle this problem.

The headline on CNN today repeats what we have heard so often before: “Suspect’s digital profile was ‘very, very disturbing’” And the repetitious subhead regurgitates the script we have already memorized: “Suspect bought firearm and passed background check.”

Donald Trump, in his argument for overspending on the military and the need to build a big wall, demonstrated this arcane logic in his 2015 Tweet, “A nation WITHOUT BORDERS is not a nation at all. We must have a wall. The rule of law matters.” So, Mr. Big Shot Presidente, what have you done to stop these lawless infringements on the rights of US citizens to be safe? Are you doing your number one job of Keeping America Safe? Why aren’t we spending our money on prevention of this scourge?

To say that a wall and borders make a country better, safer or more productive is a false prophecy. The President constantly complains about our porous borders, where he envisions millions of people swarming in to kill us. It’s not immigrants causing this problem though. Most tragedies start with regular citizens and their right to legally buy semi-automatic weaponry.

We have too many guns and we have flimsy procedures in place to keep unstable people from buying them. Trump wants to keep those “bad hombres” from getting into the country, but has no insight about how to keep deranged citizens from getting weapons of mass destruction. And even if he had an idea to do something, the National Rifle Association would slap him upside the head so fast his copious hair follicles would fly out. Why is the AR-15 even sold in America?

For a man who wants so much power, the Donald is simply powerless to do anything about the school shootings. Congress is also complicit. It’s amazing how they clean the blood off their hands before the next shooting. America has been hypnotized by our collective inability to see this issue clearly. So, we’ll say it again, we have too many guns and we have flimsy procedures in place to keep unstable people from buying them.

As soon as we figure out what the Second Amendment really means, we will start to achieve a solution. A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. It starts with “well-regulated” and doesn’t say that an unorganized, non-militia, one-person coup is permitted to strike down our children in schools. The second amendment gives us the right to keep and bear arms and the use of those arms is clear: to secure a free state. Nothing is secured when we allow the killing of innocent people. Why do we ignore the words, well regulated?

Let it be noted that no President has ever been able to solve this problem. They may say they want to broker peace in the Middle East, or set a priority to create tons of jobs, or they might even talk about wiping out the opioid crisis by getting drugs off our streets, but none of them have been able to make America safer from gun violence. We have too many guns and we have flimsy procedures in place to keep unstable people from buying them.

The pain of the nation on the morning after this latest shooting will blur into the list of killing fields. So far there have been 18 school shootings this year, and we are on target to have our biggest year yet. The good people of South Florida will wash away the blood from the floors of the classrooms and, perhaps in an act of pure tribalism, tear down the building, but nothing will make it better. God will stand over us and, once again, hear our slogan of “thoughts and prayers.” We will be judged by our lack of action on this matter of grave importance.

And in the end, another politician will take a large contribution from the NRA and send the message that if you want to be safe in America, go buy a gun. They have gotten all politicians addicted to the money and, with each child buried, the President and Congress have more blood on their hands. Trump’s campaign promises to the NRA and the radio and TV spots that they ran for him were bought with the bodies of our kids. This is your Vietnam, Mr. Trump.
