NASTY, MEAN & FEMALE

Trump’s Freudian Flaw Exposed

The President of the United States is a male chauvinist pig. Boy, that not only feels good to say but it’s also true. Remember the Bible story about the woman who had been accused of a sin and was about to be stoned? Recall a group of men there with stones in their hands when Jesus intervened and said, “He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.”

Ancient Form of Punishment

Stoning, also called lapidation, was and is a form of capital punishment in which a group throws stones at a person until the subject dies from blunt trauma. It was used to punish not only adultery but also whatever the men in power considered to be illicit sexual intercourse. The Book of Leviticus in the Holy Bible illustrates that homosexuals and women were given much harsher punishments than men.

I found the descriptions of Donald Trump’s early life in Mary L. Trump’s tell-all-book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, to be quite illuminating. Donald Trump’s father, Frederick Christ Trump, yes that is his real name, was not to be questioned and especially not to be challenged by a woman. The expression Fred Senior used to describe any woman who got in his way was “nasty.”

Having limited intelligence and a sparse vocabulary, the Donald simply inherited the speaking of his father. The word “nasty” wended its way into 18th century parlance to describe an ugly woman. Not only was it a term used to disparage an unattractive woman, but it’s implication of “nasty slut” gave a little more kick to men. Before we accuse Trump of using the word to describe only women, let‘s think again.

Trump has also called many men nasty, including Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham, Mitt Romney, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, London Mayor Sadiq Khan, evangelical leader Russell Moore, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, CNN’s David Gregory and the late conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer, just to name a few. So, Trump’s go-to word is not just for women.

Our President repeatedly uses improper words. Yesterday, Trump had difficulty with the word “fatalities.” He mispronounced the word twice while saying, “99.95% of all “fatilities” are adults.” Think about that. 99.95%, is extremely close to 100%, and the fact that Trump’s statement wasn’t true is just as bad as his inability to utter the word correctly. I had to pour myself another cup of covfefe and watch the video.

But let’s get back to “nasty.” One of Donald Trump’s favorite words connotes a highly unpleasant, physically nauseating, olfactory sensation. In simple terms, the word can be used to describe a smelly person. It can also designate a mean, unpleasant, harmful person or thing. When an older person has an accident when walking, we say “it was a nasty fall.”  The word “nasty” can also mean a person has been behaving in an unpleasant or spiteful way. Doesn’t all of this pretty much describe Trump’s daily output?

A Woman

Donald Trump’s putdown of Democratic Vice Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris included not only the word “nasty,” but also “mean,” placing a delicious cherry on top of the insult. Trump often focuses on the treatment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing. It seems funny that the Republicans were so nervous about their members on the Judiciary Committee acting nasty and mean that they hired a woman to question another woman who was accusing the behavior of the nominated man. So, is it true that only a woman can get another woman to tell the truth in a man’s world?

I hate to break the news, but the demon who brewed Donald Trump in the cauldron of the 1940s added a heavy dose of misogynism, countless spoons of racism and a ton of denial to protect him from all the women and Black people who were either trying to get his money or take power from that little kid in Queens, New York. Even a surface look at how Trump dealt with the Central Park Five shows his racism. The way he’s treated women over the years demonstrates that he’s one, big, fat-assed chauvinist.

If we give him any more time in the White House, Trump will be grabbing all those nasty sluts by the pussy whenever he wants because he is famous and powerful. As for all the men out there, who grew up with strong mothers like I did, you can either sit there and condone or stand up for your mom and vote him the fuck out of office.

DEEP STATE vs. DEEP CLEAN

Trump’s Obsessions Obfuscate Reality

Some students at a Georgia school recently tested positive for COVID. When the school board announced they were sending all the kids home and would be doing what they called a “deep cleaning” of the building, I laughed.

I know you must be wondering how the hell I found humor in that news, but I did. You see, buildings don’t carry the virus, people do. Oh sure, they say that the germs on certain surfaces stay active for a time, but how long and how much still seems to be a mystery.

In the article I read there was no mention of testing all the students before they come back to the cleaned school. Why? The article didn’t say there would be contact tracing of the students who tested positive. In three days, after the school gets all nice and clean, the kids will come back and get temperature checks. Really? If any are asymptomatic, they won’t be running hot, making re-infection a true possibility.

President Donald Trump has no knowledge of about how all this virus stuff works, and worse, doesn’t he doesn’t follow the guidelines of the experts. He believes in a deep state and doesn’t know what a deep clean is. He’s the worst possible person to be in charge right now.

Trump keeps demanding the schools to open and says that student athletes, who have “worked so hard,” should be allowed to play. Okay, we get it. TV contracts for College football produce millions of dollars. In fact, according to the NCAA governing body, at 1,100 NCAA schools more than $18 billion was spent on athletics in 2018. Of that figure, $3.5 billion went toward financial aid for student athletes and $3.4 billion was spent on coaches’ compensation. Wow, I guess they can pay the coaches a lot of money because the student athletes don’t get paid, but that’s for another post.

I was recuperating from a hospital stay when the global pandemic started. I focused on my own health after a routine procedure. Once I got back on my feet I had to sit down and stay in because of COVID-19. Since I was interested in making sure a few family members and friends were up to date on the virus, I would get up early every morning and cut and paste data from many websites into a newsletter. As the virus got worse, my daily reports got longer and longer and took more time to compose. I wasn’t claiming to know anything; I was just mining data and then regurgitating it. The daily dose of data gave me a sense of purpose. Oh, yeah, the mailing list grew.

Then I had an epiphany.

First, let’s take some stuff apart. We have a virus. We don’t have a cure or a vaccine. If we did, I would still be sleeping. Next, we have huge numbers of people who have been infected. No offense to the more than 154,000 people who have died but being infected is not always a death sentence. Only 3.2% of those we know had the virus died as a result. In a country with 330 million people that could mean that ten million people could die before we get a vaccine. Now do I have your attention?

Just like contracting HIV/AIDS does not surely lead to death, getting COVID-19 doesn’t mean certain death. HIV/AIDS has been in the US for 40 years. We’ve been working on a vaccine, but we STILL DO NOT HAVE ONE and, take a gulp, we might not see a COVID-19 vaccine in our lifetime.

We have cases of COVID all over the place and the testing of people is going to slow down. WHY? Because of political bullshit, money and time reasons. Who wants to sit in a car queued up in a six-hour line for a test? On top of that, results are so slow some might have to be reminded why the health department is calling.

We can no longer look at CASES and see them as bad things. Yes, a positive test can lead to symptoms and maybe then you have to go to the hospital. I don’t want to sound goofy, but that is called HOSPITALIZATION. If you then cannot defend yourself against the virus it usually leads to DEATH. That’s the bad part.

Then, it hit me like a ton of bricks. Would someone please pick up the bricks, they are blocking the driveway. Why are we focusing on cases? We know that a certain percentage of reasonably active people are going to get the virus. Focus on this: The US has 4% of the world’s population but 25% of its coronavirus cases. If we are so rich and smart and we’ve already been made so GREAT AGAIN, how did this happen?

Let me share a conversation. One of my neighbors causally stated, “Well, no one has died from taking hydroxychloroquine.” and of course, my knee jerk, with the emphasis on jerk, comeback was, “That’s not true.” Here’s what well known FDA cardiologists have stated about the dangers of that drug, “These adverse events included QT interval prolongation, ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation, and in some cases death. The FDA also said patients who have other health issues, such as heart or kidney disease, are at increased risk of these heart problems when receiving these medicines.”

The only reason we keep talking about this “Fake News” is because Trump is an idiot. Why does he say things without researching them? Because he’s an idiot; did I mention that?

We need to stop focusing on CASES. We should study HOSPITALIZATIONS, INTENSIVE CARE UNIT BEDS, VENTILATORS in use, and DEATH caused by COVID-19. Why are we trying to measure a viral spread by some state health department’s incompetent testing? I am totally convinced that Kansas and West Virginia aren’t even trying.

As Bruce Springsteen once sang, “Someday we’ll look back on this and it will all seem funny.” We simply don’t know what we are doing. They didn’t know what to do in 1918 and they had two waves of a virus that killed 50 million worldwide and about 675,000 Americans. We just don’t get it. So, ride your motorcycles and gather. Hopefully, your kids can get some good money for those old hand-me-down Harley’s.

You know, with the sweep of a magic wand this will all magically go away, said the man who claimed that the virus was so bad in 1917 it caused the end of World War II. Wrong year, wrong war, wrong President!

THE RIGHT OVERSIGHT

Trump & Truman, Birds of a Feather?

Why don’t more people compare Harry Truman and Donald Trump? They should because it would provide insight into oversight. Most people don’t go there because Truman was a Democrat and Trump is a “sort of” Republican, but that won’t get in the way of this history lesson.

Harry Truman was not President Roosevelt’s only Vice President. Most younger Americas don’t remember that FDR served eight terms, a loophole that was taken away when the Twenty-Second Amendment said a president may be elected for only two terms with a total of eight years.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the 32nd President, had three Vice Presidents. He changed his VPs more often than his boxer shorts, mostly for political reasons. Harry Truman was kind of like FDR’s Mike Pence. He hailed from the Midwest and was more conservative than FDR. His claim to fame before becoming Vice President was running a committee that investigated waste and corruption in the military. He became president when FDR died shortly after being reelected for the eighth time.

Here’s where the comparison between Trump and Truman gets a little scary. President Truman made the decision to drop the atomic bomb on two Japanese cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Some say the two bombings killed as many as 230,000 civilians and they remain the only use of nuclear weapons in the history of armed conflict. Thank God. Truman claimed that dropping the big bomb had saved more than a million US lives by not prolonging a war with Japan. Well, we proved it could work and learned how terribly bad a nuclear weapon truly is.

When Harry Truman was confronted about waging war in Korea without a formal declaration and vote in congress, he allegedly told reporters, “I don’t ask their permission — I just consult them.” Appalled by Truman’s comment, Robert Taft from Ohio proclaimed that Harry Truman was courting a “Constitutional crisis.” Trump may say he’s a deal maker, but he’s just doing what HE THINKS is best. At least Truman took advice.

Like most presidents who have Congressional monkeys on their backs, Truman was not liked by the “other party” in Congress. When Truman fired General Douglas MacArthur for insubordination, the not so fearful General went to Capitol Hill to speak before a joint session of Congress. Many of Truman’s rivals wept openly. They thought MacArthur was infallible. It has been said that Truman was disgusted by the sight of “damn fool Congressmen crying like a bunch of women” after hearing “nothing but a bunch of bullshit!”  The description of Democrats is that they wet their seats when witnessing such emotional loyalty to MacArthur. If Trump gets reelected, Democrats and the nation will need a big box of Depend adult diapers.

When a person hears others saying they are the world’s most powerful person, they start to believe it. Oversight simply becomes an unnecessary burden on their lifestyle and ego. Trump’s similarity to Truman comes in the form of mismanaging crises. Truman used the atomic bomb to end a war but played the Korean conflict like he was walking on eggshells. He also showed the world he was afraid of China and Russia.

Trump is walking away from the fight with the coronavirus like he’s worried about making a mistake. His failed response is only made worse by his inability to know what Americans really need right now, a decisive leader. I question the loyalty to home and flag on the part of those who think Trump’s doing a good job. He’s not.

What makes our situation with the coronavirus even worse is that Trump, like Truman, will leave behind a pile of dung that we will have to clean up. By not using Congress to endorse his war, Truman paved the way for Vietnam, with all its feature creep and death. Presidents Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon believed they didn’t have to consult Congress on war because Truman set a precedent. Trump doesn’t believe he must engage with Congress during a crisis. Where was he all weekend? Playing golf and entertaining rich people.

Trump is unwilling and incapable of enacting an aggressive plan to end this insane attack on the health of Americans. It’s beyond deer in the headlights. The Donald is nothing but roadkill at this point. COVID-19 is his Korean Conflict and Vietnam war rolled into one and the virus has already killed more people than those conflicts.

We must not get too cocky here. Truman’s approval rating was down to 29% at one point and America elected him. Maybe Donald Trump thinks getting the US into a war will help him win another term, but he’s too chicken shit to fight a germ let alone the Chinese or the Russians.

Russia Claims Vaccine

One of the post-COVID cow patties we are going to have to scrap off our collective shoes is a notion of oversight, and it’s going to take smart people in the White House and Congress to pull it off. The old school politics of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Mitch McConnell and old goats like Chuck Grassley and the slowly withering Dianne Feinstein are over. On a cautionary note, we don’t need frat boy pranksters like Florida’s First District Representative Matt Gaetz or troublesome formulators of English words like Representative Ilhan Omar. They are trying to make their mark, but they’re trash ideologs who should never be taken too seriously. Watch the HBO documentary called The Swamp and you’ll see why.

Our inspector generals must be better vetted and protected. There are currently 1,600 people working in the 73 offices of US inspectors general. In the beginning we had only 12 offices. What caused the growth? Harry Truman used those offices to investigate fraudulent contracts and financial improprieties in military procurement. Harry was called on the carpet for employing his wife, Bess, in the government. Trump has his family working for the White House, his campaign and the government, while the family skims money by commanding departments to support Trump kingdom’s hotels and services.

Sure, Harry Truman advanced the concept he called the Marshall Plan, which was a US program to provide aid to Western Europe following the devastation of World War II. Those ideas, like NATO, were designed to keep us out of war yet they’re the very things Donald Trump wants to throw away. Dumb.

As many as 34,000 Americans and allied troops died in Korea, and we ended up right where we started, the 38th Parallel. Sure, Truman avoided a war with China and Russia by not letting MacArthur take the whole Korean peninsula, but Truman’s fear of World War III gave us Kim Jong-Un with a nuclear arsenal. Some would say reasonable tradeoff, but our current president has made that worse.

Trump wants to kowtow to Moscow while taking on China. In the nightmare vision pictured in George Orwell’s classic book, 1984, three nations survived an atomic war. There was Oceania, then, Eurasia, and finally Eastasia, and they were not democracies, at all. They were in constant conflict with two ganging up on one. Then, they would switch sides and do the same thing to the new “enemy of the state.”

The three most powerful nations today are the United States, Russia and China. Truman knew more about the world than Trump could ever dream to fathom. China might be a stronger economic force than Russia, but how many nuclear bombs do you need to end the world? Think about all the terrible things that could possibly happen to the United State of America and there’s Trump, stumped by a virus. It’s totally pitiful and embarrassing. Trump with a phone and a Twitter account thinks he’s the big player. They are laughing in Beijing and Moscow and the Donald doesn’t even know it.

NOTE: Read this book, it’s where I am learning a lot about presidents.


PLAYING THE TRUMP CARD

Being Political Has Become Too Political

My high school English teacher, Mrs. Virginia Apple (yes that was her real name), used to constantly preach, “Be specific!” Back in the 1960s, I wasn’t quite sure what that meant, but today I keep that little jewel in mind when I start any work of word.

Donald Trump is a horrible communicator. Most times, his desire to be political is so political that he clouds the very point he’s trying to make. The concept of playing a “trump card” in a game gives one person or group the advantage over another. For example, in a card playing game a trump card is elevated above its usual rank. The Donald constantly plays games and attempts to divert your attention from whatever it is that he’s trying to say. The opposite of being specific is being vague.

I was trained as a journalist and broadcaster, and last weekend’s setup for a press conference at the Trump golf course in New Jersey appalled me. First, if Donald John Trump wants America to take him seriously, why would he create an environment in which his $350,000-paying golf club customers joined his press and media bully team? He’s claiming to help those who have been hurt by the pandemic and economic collapse, yet his approach is soiling his very own messaging. He really doesn’t see the flaw in having a bunch of rich people laughing at him while America suffers.

He viewed his press conference about signing legally questionable “executive orders” which he mistakenly called “bills,” the real purpose of the gathering was getting his putrid puss on TV. He blew it. We would all rather be watching baseball, but he interrupted our weekend with another lying, dystopian diatribe. He was more interested in telling us why the Democrats are a demonic force than convincing any thinking person that he’s on top of the problem. In fact, Democrats are asking for MORE MONEY for the people and states. And to be clear, the executive branch can declare “Executive Orders” which are like proclamations that carry the force of law, but the judicial branch can declare such acts unconstitutional. This happens frequently.

The president doesn’t understand the laws. He says he’s the law and order president, yeah, ignore the law and sign an order. White House officials have studied using leftover money approved by Congress for use by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. According to the Washington Post, “It is unclear if the administration can repurpose those funds for unemployment benefits without violating the Antideficiency Act, a federal budgeting law.”  I am not making this shit up, The Antideficiency Act prohibits federal employees from: making or authorizing an expenditure from, or creating or authorizing an obligation under, any appropriation or fund in excess of the amount available in the appropriation or fund unless authorized by law. 31 U.S.C. § 1341(a)(1)(A).

What the Donald did try to do with one of those executive turds signed with the big felt tipped instrument of ego, was taking the payroll tax away for the year. BECAUSE HE WANTED TO. No one wanted it, Republican or Democrat and he lied when he said everyone wanted it.

Trump wants to DEFUND social security, Medicare and Medicaid. He’s a snake selling snake oil. Listen to these words, he signed an executive order to defer payroll tax payments from August 1 – retroactively – through December for people who earn less than $100,000. He said if he wins in November, he will seek to extend the deferral and “terminate the tax” WTF? That tax funds Social Security and Medicare benefits! What happens to those funds if no tax is collected to keep those programs running?

Just as we said, America, if you don’t see this bait and switch, we’re doomed! One of the executive orders would aim to provide $400 in weekly unemployment aid for millions of Americans whose $600 in weekly benefits expired last month. But 25% of these benefits would be required to be paid by states, many of which are already dealing with major budget shortfalls and have pleaded with Congress for more aid. One would assume, if the state said, “NO WAY,” no one could get the extra money. The myth that this will motivate people to go back to work is total BULLSHIT. People are either able to work or not. If they quit their jobs, they don’t get benefits.

The vague notions that Trump was spewing over the weekend were just a stunt. Another confusing and disruptive diatribe engineered to get the media to talk about him. The analysis and critical thinking are not being done in the White House before they mush his dictation into flimsy law, he holds up with a large insecurity driven signature, it’s being done by the press. What a terrible way to run a government.

VERY IMPORTANT POINT, hardly any well-run company would stop taking the federal employment taxes out of their employee’s paychecks. Why? Because if they did, and later the court ruled his actions were unconstitutional, the IRS could immediately demand the corporations or LLCs pay the tax. Then, the company would ask the employee if they wanted the whole tax debt to be taken out of the next paycheck in one fell swoop, or just taken out in small gulps over 2021. How would that be good for anyone trying to put all the pieces back together as we get control of this pandemic?

To be more specific, Trump is like the drunken day trader who has a nice fancy dashboard in his computer who rides the ups and downs down to the minute, than someone with a long-term strategy and respect for over-arching events. He’s trying to push a poll rather than think through the reality of life and death in America. The fact he used the words, “If Congress doesn’t do something, I’m going to take matters into my own hands,” is so OBAMA! In February 2016, Trump said, “The country wasn’t based on executive orders! Right now, Obama goes around signing executive orders. He can’t even get along with the Democrats, and he goes around signing all these executive orders. It’s a basic disaster. You can’t do it.” The Donald sure spends a lot of time telling people what they can’t do, while he does the very thing he has condemned.

Hate to sound political, but, of course Congress is absolutely dysfunctional, but Donald Trump is totally a petty, juvenile, vicious and disreputable habitual liar. His damned self-aggrandizing and need to make himself immune to criticism has cost lives and hurt the democracy. The real trump card is just a fake piece of paper, which may end up in the public records, but could be just as easily shredded by the next president. Let’s MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN and get a new president.

BIDEN AND BLACK PEOPLE

Desperate & Despicable Racist Tongue Lashings

There is something vile about Trump’s inability to see his words as hurtful and racist. He simply doesn’t know or care. There is no difference between the words and actions of our President and the attitudes of southern dixie-crats, bigoted segregationists, sugar daddy John Birchers and the disgruntled workers wanting to take back their country at the expense of people of color. Donald Trump’s need for power drives his lying and thirst for obedience. He’s a fat, white criminal who must be cast out of the People’s House.

I happen to know a lot about white people. My mother and father were white. I was raised to respect the church, God and Jesus, and I understand the nature of faith. It’s a personal commitment, not necessarily a mass following by many. Donald John Trump’s statement that Joe Biden is “against God” is the most ridiculous lie that could possibly be said.

Joe Biden’s statement about the difference between African Americans and Latino Americans was less of a mistake and more truth that all Trump has said in the last 75 years. First, there is a bond with Black people that the Donald will never be able to comprehend. Hispanics have a loyalty toward their individual cultures and homelands and Biden is right, it’s a rainbow of possible actions and reactions. I was amazed when at a baseball game in Puerto Rico and seeing Puerto Ricans making fun of a Mexican pitcher. I asked, “Hey, he’s Mexican, why are you making fun?” They just looked at me, smiled and explained, “Well, he’s Mexican.” The “making fun” was a kind of diversity of opinion, not healthy, but darkly competitive.

Trump and his flock of sycophants are 99.99% white, and that is why they made the mistake of choosing Juneteenth for their rally in Tulsa. The new HBO series WATCHMAN painfully details the riots that took place in Tulsa in 1921. If you don’t know about them you should READ. The racial insensitively of the Trump minions was eclipsed by the foolishness of having a rally during a pandemic. Herman Cain, a powerful conservative voice, was there and now he’s dead. No one knows if he contracted the disease at the rally, but a good detective would suspect the Trump gathering played a role.

Trump said the “Black Lives Matter” movement is made up of terrorists, meaning that African Americans are anti-American in some way. Really? How long can he get away with pushing Kanye West, a troubled, bi-polar star, to run for President in an attempt to pull Black votes from Joe Biden? Oh, you say, he has nothing to do with it. Then why did a Trump campaign lawyer deliver the signed petitions to get West on the ballot in Wisconsin? Hey, READ IT. This was probably Roger Stone’s idea. He’s already been paid with a pardon. Trump is a criminal.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt said that he felt World War II had taught Americans that, “our well-being is dependent on the well-being of other nations far away.” They must live, “not as ostriches, nor as dogs in the manger,” but as, “citizens of the world, members of the human community.” Because he’s facing the possibility of being voted out of office, Trump cares not whom he offends or derides. He thinks only about his hold on power.

The “human community” is critically important right now. Despite his “America First” ballyhoo, Trump’s premise that America can exist alone and overpower everyone else is simply wrong. The COVID-19 crisis was created by a global confluence of trade, travel and tribal abuse. Yes, the American tribe is being led by a chief who believes in magic spirits and concoctions, not science. He worships the dollar and sees every citizen as both the benefactor of his deeds, (“I’m doing America a favor.”) and collateral damage (“It is what it is.”) Yes, to stay in office he will kill you if he must.

A great quote from President Harry Truman recently caught my eye, “Ignorance causes most mistakes.” He said, “Not all readers become leaders, but all leaders must be readers and the only thing new in the world is the history you don’t know.”

The ignorance of our President is overwhelming, and I conclude that he’s most “Godless” president we’ve had since Thomas Jefferson. There is no moral basis for his theory of the human condition. It’s appalling that religious leaders and evangelicals look the other way and continue to support him. COVID-19 is the plague, but Trump is a massive wave of frogs, lice, flies, boils, hail, and locusts. Out of fairness to the office, I have left the words “darkness and the killing of firstborn children” out of my narrative, but I could say that older Americans with preexisting conditions are being killed by this administration’s inaction and ignorance.

Joe & the Jerk

Trump is more concerned with TikTok and Joe Biden than the pandemic. He views the coronavirus as a minor, personal setback that will soon evaporate. He judges the character of men by whether they attended his inauguration. He doesn’t know Joe Biden; he only knows how to hate. In the end, God will be the final judge on which were his just actions, and which were his lies. When the water turns into blood, we might have cures for all the disorders and diseases in the world, but they will not be the result of any Donald Trump actions. They will flow from the genius of science and scientists.

According to an NPR poll, during the George Floyd protests, Overall, 67% said Trump has mostly increased racial tensions, including 92% of Democrats, 73% of independents, 88% of Africans Americans and 63% of whites. That probably will not change.

Trump’s TV shows tell him the African America vote is important, however there is a strange statistic. Assuming they go to the polls, younger Black voters are a weak spot for Biden. Aha, there’s the idea behind Kanye West. Some polls project Kanye could get 2% of the Black vote. Just like the “Bernie Bros” wasted their votes in 2016, there could be some “I don’t really care for either” voters to lessen a Democratic blowout. But, hey, it’s still early.

REPETITION IS NOT INTELLIGENCE

Trump’s fallback: “Through no fault of their own.”

When I had less than a pot to pee in, I still had my words. When I achieved a comfortable bank account, I still counted on my words to get me through each day. I have a firm repulsion when the blame-game gets in the way of finding a solution to a problem. We are all occasionally guilty of wasting time and energy on assigning blame or, said in polite terms, giving priority to “accountability” rather than understanding why something took place.

One of the justifications that Donald John Trump uses for helping people is a thin strip of logic using the words, “Through no fault of their own.” His meaning is the subject deserves something but can’t be personally blamed for what happened. I’m not a psychologist, but I sense the Donald is projecting a lack of blame for virus victims as a way of escaping blame for the situation we are in. He often accuses others of what he just did. He says the Democrats are being political, and in the same paragraph he becomes totally political and disingenuous. Donald, a paragraph is a distinct section of a piece of writing usually dealing with a single theme.

The phrase, “Through no fault of their own,” was also used by President Obama to describe the predicament of young children who were brought to America by their illegal, immigrant parents. It was Obama’s way to promote sympathy for the dreamers. He signed an executive order to create Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which helped more than 800,000 young people and, through no fault of their own, many conservatives have been trying to end the program for years. Some of the dreamers have had children themselves by now.

We hear another ad hominem from many on capitol hill that if you give people unemployment compensation during the pandemic they will never want to go back to work. That is total BULLSHIT! First, where are the jobs they can go back to? WHY ARE THEY BLAMING THE VICTIMS? If you work at a movie theater, you aren’t staying home because you want to suck money from the government; your place of business is closed. There are also people trying to decide whether going back to work will lead to a COVID-19 infection that will kill them. Through no fault of their own, they care about staying alive.

When the numbers from two different reliable pollsters came in today, the news was not good for Trump. According to Rasmussen, only 26% of Americans say the US heading in right direction, and that was from the week ending on July 30, 2020. Other polls are backing up those numbers. Clearly, more than 70% of America thinks we are going in the wrong direction with our fight against the global pandemic.

Through no fault of their own, the press report facts and present questions that should be answered. Lying to the press, because of the ever-present ability to play back the actual words that were used just days, weeks or months ago, can not only embarrass a person in power but also drain their credibility on an issue. Many of us have now seen the brilliant interview of Donald Trump by Axios’ Jonathan Swan. When Swan confronted our President with the fact we have a large death count from coronavirus in the United States, this is what we got,

SWAN: “Oh, you’re doing death as a proportion of cases. I’m talking about death as a proportion of population. That’s where the US is really bad. Much worse than South Korea, Germany, etc.”

TRUMP: “You can’t do that.”

SWAN: “Why can’t I do that?”

TRUMP: “It is what it is. And we’ll still be lucky if we all live through it.”

This is the fucking President of the United States, throwing up his hands and ignoring reality to the point he cannot be trusted. But then, you already knew that.

There’s a lengthy list of the stupid things Trump has said. After his first hundred days in office, I documented many of them in my Trump impeachment book. If you have the paperback edition, check out the back cover. Added to that list are, “There are fine people on both sides,” and “I fell in love with Kim” (Kim Jong-Un of North Korea) and we should all remember what he said about COVID-19 on February 26, 2020, “This is a flu. This is like a flu. And you treat this like a flu. It’s a little like the regular flu that we have flu shots for.” Thirty-three days later, he took all that back and declared the coronavirus was not at all like the flu but “vicious!”  Wonder what changed his mind? People dying?

Through no fault but his own, Donald Trump fails to comprehend that his words have great power and influence. I think he doesn’t believe that anyone will remember the latest lie. He knows there are more than 156,000 dead Americans due to his administration’s lack of actions, plans and preventive measures, yet he insists that he and his minions have done a great job. The reason he repeatedly says that we are having a tremendous success fighting the virus is because he’s knows it’s not true. This might be a push, but does he become aroused sexually when he lies? Okay, yes, too far.

He says many things over and over and anyone who knows anything about media would tell him to just SHUT UP. The more he talks, the more he embarrasses himself and America. Through no fault but his own, he has given the other candidate lots of quotes to use IN CONTEXT in TV ads to lower his numbers. Buffoon is a word that comes to mind. Why would Donald Trump on national TV say the explosion in Lebanon was a “bomb” before anyone from that country determined that the blast was an accident? A good leader would have asked if anyone in the US is storing chemicals in large warehouses.

Fat Man in pickle

I remember a heated and bombastic interview on CBS’ Face The Nation with Stephen Miller, the head ideolog and xenophobe speech writer for Donald Trump, who used the words, “The powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned.” That’s much like a reporter asking Trump a reasonable, fact-based question and getting pushback with the reply, You can’t do that!” Where do these people get the idea that they cannot be challenged? If the president’s power to protect our country is so substantial, then why hasn’t he used it to save us from this pandemic? He doesn’t have a clue about what a president is supposed to do. It’s just a game to him. He’s the banker sitting at the monopoly board but not engaged with reality. He’s not responsible for our losses and remains solely focused on how to print more money. FAILED PRESIDENCY!

VOTER SUPPRESSION DEPRESSION

Cheater-in-Chief Changes the Rules

It didn’t surprise me when the newspapers broke the story about Donald John Trump, our 45th President, allegedly paying a porn movie star and a Playboy bunny $130,000 each to keep their mouths shut about the affairs. He cheated on his wife right after their son Barron was born. This is not hearsay. According to the testimony of Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, that is exactly what happened.

Russia helped Trump get elected, but the Donald would rather look the other way than take aggressive actions against further interference from China or Russia. He’s quite comfortable with cheating because he’s done it all his life. From not paying vendors before, during and after bankruptcy, to preventing African Americans from renting his properties in New York, Donald Trump doesn’t play by the rules.

If a rule gets in the way, he changes it. His deregulation actions are not keeping America safer, they are endangering communities and kids everywhere. Why would an American president say it’s okay to add pollution to our land, seas and sky? We were making great progress before Trump.

Georgia’s Governor Kemp

Brian Kemp, the current Governor of Georgia and previously the state’s Secretary of State, has been investigated by the United States House Oversight and Reform Committee, claiming that Georgians faced unprecedented challenges with registering to vote, and significant barriers to casting their votes, during the 2018 election. That’s such a blatant conflict of interest. While running for Governor, Secretary of State Kemp headed the administration of the elections. Regardless of party affiliation, any such incidents in other states need to be examined. This is plainly wrong.

Trump has been haranguing and lying about the United States Postal Service (USPS) for years, but now he has placed a true “yes man” in the position of Postmaster General. The New York Times story quoting the President, says it all, ‘“CORRUPT ELECTION’ that will ‘LEAD TO THE END OF OUR GREAT REPUBLICAN PARTY’ and become the ‘SCANDAL OF OUR TIMES.’” Trump predicted that children would steal ballots out of mailboxes and then went so far as to suggest delaying the election instead. What a desperate son-of-a-bitch.

Attacking the Post Office is not merely a budget issue with Trump. He put new Postmaster General Louis DeJoy in charge and gave him his marching orders. Along with being a major Republican donor, DeJoy’s wife serves as the vice-chairwoman of the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships, which is tasked with reviewing candidates for White House fellowships, whatever that means. DeJoy’s claim to fame is his High Point, NC company called New Breed Logistics, which he sold for $615 million.

Mr. DeJoy’s opening statement regarding the USPS was rather negative, “The Postal Service is in a financially unsustainable position, stemming from substantial declines in mail volume, and a broken business model. We are currently unable to balance our costs with available funding sources to fulfill both our universal service mission and other legal obligations. Because of this, the Postal Service has experienced over a decade of financial losses, with no end in sight, and we face an impending liquidity crisis.” I boldened that one point on purpose.

Postmaster General DeJoy

It would make much more sense for Congress to fund the service from now until the end of the year, and make a permanent course correction after the election. Let’s not thwart the mail flow during a pandemic and election year. We heard Trump whine about how he didn’t want to wait days and days for the election results, even floating the idea that it could take years. This, while people who get their medicine through the mail are waiting because their packages are being stacked up in their local post office. DeJoy told them that the guarantees on immediately delivery can be ignored. Oh, we know where that is coming from. Regardless of the result, Trump plans to challenge the election in court. It’s what he does.

When the Trump Organization was in trouble financially a few years ago Deutsche Bank called its loan. Then the Donald sued the bank. Really? He owed money, failed to make payments and then he went after them? The bank countersued and part of the settlement involved the bank loaning Trump more money. WTF?

Last night, the New York Times reported, “Deutsche Bank has opened an internal investigation into the longtime personal banker of President Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, over a 2013 real estate transaction between the banker and a company part-owned by Mr. Kushner. In June 2013, the banker, Rosemary Vrablic, and two of her Deutsche Bank colleagues purchased a Park Avenue apartment for about $1.5 million from a company called Bergel 715 Associates, which was partly owned by Jared Kushner.”

According to the Guardian, “Germany’s troubled Deutsche Bank faces fines, legal action and the possible prosecution of ‘senior management’ because of its role in a $20-80 billion Russian money-laundering scheme. The case, nicknamed the Global Laundromat, took place between 2010 and 2014 and the bank’s internal memo claims it was a scheme to move money into the western financial system.”

If any of those funds were used to pump up the businesses of Trump and/or Kushner, it would be a giant conflict of interest and possibly prosecutable criminal activity. As most experts have figured out, Trump isn’t as liquid and rich as he says he is, and he needed someone’s help to get out of the deep debt brought about by bankruptcies. It’s on record that his company borrowed hundreds of millions of dollars from Deutsche Bank.

Jared Kushner, a senior adviser to the president, disclosed in an annual personal financial report late Friday that he and his wife, Ivanka Trump, had received $1 million to $5 million last year from Bergel 715. After this story broke, Kushner’s lawyer said he had nothing to do with Bergel 715, a real estate company. Not only is that such a disingenuous statement, but the fact they released it late Friday is so Trumpean.

The debacle with the Post Office goes much deeper than its finances; it’s a corrupt and out in the open attempt to suppress the vote. Trump is a criminal, just like Richard Nixon. Congress should step up to the plate and knock this issue right out of the park. We need to fund the states so they can conduct all methods of voting. DO NOT BE BULLIED BY TRUMP.

Now, for you junior crime fighters online, focus on the connection between Trump’s and Kushner’s tax returns, Deutsche Bank and personal banker Rosemary Vrablic. After you get the data, by hook or crook, you will learn why Donald J. Trump kowtows to Putin and Russia. It’s all about the money. Always has been.

TIK TOK, TIK TOK, TIK TOK

Don Quixote Takes on Chinese Windmill

Donald Trump thinks he knows technology, but he doesn’t know jack. According to John Bolton’s book, our President talks a good game about stopping China from invading our shores, but he’s a total failure with his actions. Remember when everyone, from 60 Minutes, through Marco Rubio to the heads of our tech companies, was warning the US that we should block the firm Huawei from doing business in the USA? As their website shows you they are here, and their introduction of 5G technology to our nation seems to be a fait accompli.

The first question we all should be asking is why the President of the United States would use access to our communication networks as a bargaining chip in a trade negotiation. If Trump honestly believes that a Chinese technology could hurt our security and privacy in any way, why would he let them in? Trump’s COVID “travel ban” allowed more than 50,000 people from infected countries to enter the USA. He always talks a good game, but he never delivers an effective follow through. Was the security issue with Huawei a hoax? If he takes back all his whiny complaints, I will ask Marco Rubio.

The clock is ticking, and Trump was talking trash Friday night with his tweet claiming that he will ban TikTok in the US with an executive order. Does he know that 100 million of us clicked into TikTok for entertainment during the pandemic? One of my favorites on TikTok is Sarah Cooper, who does a slam-dunk lip-sync parody of Donald Trump. Check out this link to see.

 

It didn’t take long for an article to be penned in Vogue magazine that claims Ms. Cooper is the real reason Trump wants to ban TikTok. Could that be true? The technical question is how would Trump ban an internet product? Would he demand that “the Internet” take one player down citing some sort of security issue? Who exactly oversees the Internet? Is it Al Gore? Maybe the Donald will call his “great friend” President Xi and find out how that country suspends the feeds of internet sites and services they don’t like. Trump is stupid and doesn’t realize any action to ban a website would be a violation of our First Amendment.

When Turkey banned YouTube and Facebook, savvy tech users signed up for a service to jump around the bans so they could access those services without President Erdoğan playing babysitter. Users can always find a way to get what they want, even when it’s a bit more complicated.

Sweaty President

Trump’s bluff was intended to kibosh the sale of TikTok by its Chinese owner to Microsoft. The last time I checked, Microsoft was an American company. Why does Trump work against our own companies? Oh, I almost forgot; he’ll work against anything if it advances his desires or interests.

Donald John Trump thinks he’s acting, in a “strongly” way, but nobody gives a toot about TikTok. Our country is focused on COVID, a hurricane coming to the east coast and getting their jobs back. Trump is beyond tone deaf; he’s blind and mentally retarded.

I am sure someone showed the Sarah Cooper video to the President and it probably made him go ballistic. Why? Because Sarah is simply lip-synching Trump’s exact words and they seem inane in the context of her “speaking” them. She IS making fun of Trump, but he doesn’t realize that most of what he says is STUPID! When hearing the playback of their recorded voice for the very first time most people say, “I don’t sound at all like that!” Of course, the recording is exactly how they sound. Cooper’s comedy is funny because you know those exact words came directly from Trump’s tiny pie-hole.

I love to see how newspapers and websites from all over the world cover our flailing, failing president. This headline was from the New India Express, “US ‘may be banning’ TikTok: Donald Trump on Chinese video app’s censorship concerns.” So, Donald Trump wants to censor a service because of concerns about its censorship? That’s beyond ironic; it’s moronic.

Here is another analysis that appeared, “TikTok’s fun, goofy videos and ease of use has made it immensely popular, and US tech giants like Facebook and Snapchat see it as a competitive threat.” REALLY? The Indian press thinks that Trump may be wanting a TikTok ban to help his pals at Facebook? Huh? Are you confused, yet? And I almost forgot, the TikTok kids were the ones who signed up for the Tulsa rally tickets and made Trump think millions and millions of people were coming. Grudge, hell yeah!

I’ll bet this whole mess will blow over by Monday with Hurricane Isaias moving up the east coast. By the way, if storms have names do they also have social security numbers and IP addresses? Seriously, millions of Americans are in the path of a hurricane and Trump is talking about TikTok. Well, there goes the teen mail-in vote.

I cannot say it any other way. Trump is lacking a BRAIN. He’s making this country less secure, less healthy and less GREAT. He’s a loser who lives in his own private Idaho, and I’ll now quote some lyrics from that famously wonderful song by the B52’s, “You’re living in your own Private Idaho, Keep off the path, beware of the gate, Watch out for signs that say ‘hidden driveways’ Don’t let the chlorine [hydroxychloroquine] in your eyes, Blind you to the awful surprise, That’s been waitin’ for you at the bottom of the bottomless blue, blue, blue pool.”

Okay, time to drain the pool. Microphone drop.

WEEKEND IN WUHAN

Trump’s Blind Spot: Statistics 

President Donald Trump spends a lot of time blaming other people, countries or parties for things that have gone wrong. He openly stated that he takes “No responsibility” for any part of the global pandemic and the war against it here in the USA. He’s more interested in fingering China for his problems because he’s run out of American citizens to throw under the bus.

How is Wuhan, the alleged birthplace of COVID-19, doing? The state of Hubei, which Wuhan calls home, has had 68,135 cases to date, cured more than 63,000 and had only 4,512 deaths. Maybe those aren’t true numbers, but let’s put them in perspective. I live in Florida and we have had more than 465,030 cases with 6,843 deaths. I just hope America can contain the virus as well as the Chinese have.

We keep hearing from our intrepid orange leader that China should have “stopped the virus in its tracks.” Well, if that is true, why haven’t we been able to stop this thing in its tracks? Why can’t Trump fix the situations he critiques? He can’t fix the post office. He can’t fix the mail-in voting dilemma and he obviously cannot stop COVID-19. I guess he’s just not that good at his job.

Donald John Trump will not shut down the economy, no matter how many people die. They come out to the press room every day and read a list of things the administration has done, but it’s more repetition and less revelation of a light is at the end of the tunnel. I don’t see a plan. You know, like we will do A, then we’ll do B, and when we do those things, we should see C. Why is there no strategy?

All the professional sports leagues have commissioners. This is a tradition and those officials have absolute power over multiple, incorporated entities. Sure, players’ associations and unions have a large say in how these multi-millionaire players are treated. Yes, they get COVID tests in the morning and in the afternoon. Their test results obviously have a short turnaround but isn’t that how everyone should be treated? Most states follow the lead of the Feds but some governors are less effective than others. Why can’t the Federal government develop a blueprint to bring all states into the same focus? It’s because the White House is wasting tons of time with Trump’s reelection rather than fighting the virus. After reading Mary L. Trump’s and John Bolton’s books, I see no reason why Trump should be the President of the United States.

Getting back to Wuhan, it’s a city of 19 million people. We need more information from that location to study how they got this virus under control rather than painting them as a demon. Can we learn from the Chinese or will Trump continue to taunt them into silence? Our President has scuttled productive communication with China. No matter how many times Donald Trump brags about his great relationship with President Xi I am sure he will not be getting his help. It’s ironic to suggest, but maybe if Xi didn’t have such a wonderful relationship with Trump we might have known more about the coronavirus from the beginning. Trump keeps saying he loves her, but she’s cheating on him at every turn.

Chinese people are not a strange aberration of human life. They are living, breathing people who allow their smartest scientists to make decisions and deliver opinions. Research is not tweeting. It takes time to gather evidence, discuss possible solutions and then come up with a plot to solve the problem. Anyone who has ever watched an episode of the doctor TV show House, knows how it works. Trump’s fantasyland belief that the more he talks about something the faster it will become a reality is so deeply egotistical and out-of-whack with reality that he’s just plain dangerous.

One can be impressed with the constant diet-Coke stoked energy level pushing the “leader of the free world,” to argue at every turn, but just like any other disgruntled killjoy Trump wastes so many words, gestures and time on complaining and being an ingrate that nothing gets done. When things get bad, he walks away. When confronted with truth, he walks away. Donald Trump, surrounded by the virus, has surrendered. He is so incredibly incompetent, batting away criticism instead of developing a strong game plan.

According to The Economic Times newspaper and website, “Three months after it reopened its economy, Wuhan’s uneven recovery offers a glimpse of the hard road back to normality for cities after containing the coronavirus. As of May, factory output, retail sales and exports in the city were nowhere near the same level as last year. The end of Wuhan’s quarantine on April 8 was a triumphant moment for China and an important show of confidence that it had successfully contained the deadly virus in the place where it first broke out. While factories and offices quickly got back to business, consumers were slower to return, with residents cautious and habits such as cooking at home and shopping online persisting after the 76-day lockdown.”

That’s not propaganda but rather an objective viewpoint on what happens after the virus is confined by an effective strategy. Can we learn from them? They employed extensive contract tracing and surveillance. The government gathered data on the whereabouts of every one of its citizens, well, at least those with cell phones. This draconian effort by the Chinese clearly shows they didn’t “let the virus escape.”

With more than 50,000 people coming to America during the most critical days of the pandemic there was little blame to China. Let’s place culpability where it existed, which was our inability to stop travel from China, Europe and other hotspots. We were dumb because we didn’t jump on the mask bandwagon like China did. We still have little to no contact tracing, unless you work at the White House, are a professional athlete or live on a reservation or commune. Why?

I can’t believe that in a country as smart and rich as the United States we are stalled with rising death counts, famous people succumbing to this virus and shitty testing. When the big orange monster gets up and says, “No one has tested as much as we have!” he is farting out his mouth. I wouldn’t even hire Trump to drive a clown car. He’s a walking disaster.

CHICKEN LITTLE, “THE SKY IS FALLING!”

Trump’s Terribly Fake Economy is Melting Away

Before the 2016 election, when asked why I didn’t support Donald Trump I would simply smile and calmly say that I lived in New York and I knew Trump. That changed when it looked like he had a serious shot at running for President, Then I just blurted out, “I have never liked him.” To me, his P.T. Barnum routine was inauthentic. When loyalists said that he will help the stock market, get rid of regulations and make us all rich, I never believed it. He is a con man to me and a phony, blowhard, maniacal racist with no concrete facts to support his plans and policies. And by the way, he is still playing with other people’s money, our money.

I am not here to convince you that those people who questioned me were wrong. My blog is the way I release all the steam from the pressurized, overheated, three-pound mass of tissue in my skull. That’s where my logic lives. There is no proof that Trump’s get-even politics and retribution economic policies have made America better or the world economy more stable. He doesn’t understand how trade works and the real effects of tariffs and sanctions. Believing people like Peter Navarro has hurt us, badly.

Let me break it down. Trump is not helping the citizens of this country. His dog-and-pony shows are wasting valuable time needed to solve our country’s coronavirus crisis. The Trump administration has totally disconnected from Congress and it’s 100% the Donald’s fault. The displays of adulation by his sycophants during nationally televised hearings show they care only about how they look, as well. They’re baby Trumps.

The reason why Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin goes to Capitol Hill to motivate Congress in moving on relief packages for the American people is because those in power neither LIKE nor TRUST Donald Trump. Think about it. In what previous administration have you seen the leader of the Treasury being involved with foreign relations, domestic policy and moving bills through congress? According to John Bolton’s book In The Room Where It Happened, Steve Mnuchin kept good things from happening and advanced bad ideas. He has too much power in the administration.

The first Treasury Secretary was Alexander Hamilton, but I’ll wager you can’t name the most previous three. Mnuchin’s work comes about because we have a lazy, ineffectual President. HEY TRUMP, Joe Voter doesn’t live or die with the stock market like you do. They just want you to become a leader with a solid plan to end the damn virus so they can get back to work. STOP PLAYING GAMES, Mr. President. Your lies are crashing into one another.

The health of average Americans is in risk solely because of massive amounts of stupidity from Trump. When he told everyone that he would not be wearing a mask, he should have pulled out a white flag, waved it above his fake, comb-over hair and declared the virus the winner. TRUMP LOST. He was more concerned with the way a damn mask made him look than giving us good advice. What’s the net result of his inept leadership? MORE DEATH!

After months of denial, Trump got serious about the virus and masks for one day, then he darted off into conspiracies and bad advice. WHY? Does he really want to kill people? Why doesn’t someone ask him that? He’s a pathological liar, a sociopath and suffering from an industrial-strength version of narcissistic personally disorder. Pathological, as in, caused by a physical or mental disease which shows itself in compulsive and obsessive behavior. He repeatedly lies until he believes his untruths. The term, sociopath denotes a person with a personality disorder manifesting itself in extreme antisocial attitudes and behavior and a lack of conscience. Trump has no empathy or care for us. He wants all the power and all the money. He wants to be king.

And today, we get this tweet from President Donald John Trump, “With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???” And you thought I was being crazy with my comments? There is no way the November 3, 2020 election will be postponed. Donald Trump is preemptively setting up his challenge to an election result that says he didn’t win. He’s a corrupt, lying, low-life dullard. The President does not have the power to change the date of an election. Let me add that if the election were postponed, all the Representatives and Senators who are on the ballot for November 3, 2020 would have to leave the building on January 1, 2021. Yes, their terms would have expired. I wonder if they know that.

Trump is quite predictable. We now have second quarter economic stats. Remember when the Great Orange Liar was running around the country claiming the economy is wonderful and the second quarter would be great? How did that work out? The GDP dropped 32.9 points, which is not good. Trump sent out a fake economist, Larry Kudlow, to say that we are in good shape and moving in the right direction. The two of them should be evicted from the White House for misrepresenting reality.

Trump’s tweet is intended to distract the media from reporting the real problems — millions out of work, no one has money, the economy is melting down and, by the way, 152,000 Americans ARE DEAD from COVID-19. Donald Trump’s lack of action, poor communication and bad policies have caused DEATH!

The sky is falling. I originally wrote a harsh, name-calling paragraph to go in this spot, but after seeing the wonderful service for Representative John Lewis in Atlanta a golden angel tapped on my shoulder and said, “He’s winning when you call him names.” She is right. Calling the idiot in the White House the c, f, k, m or q word doesn’t do any good. What we really need is another MARCH ON WASHINGTON, where millions of people surround the people’s house, tear down the barriers and peacefully demand he leave. What would happen?
