Trump Cannot Hide from the Truth

The truth is that Donald Trump has created more problems than he has solved. His promises were sales pitches lacking merit and empathy. His magic wand mentality has been proven to be more about him than what is good and righteous for the world or the United States of America. From the moment he came on the national political stage he was out to exploit hate in exchange for power.

The “revolt” that took place in the Congress with the vote against his “national emergency” is a good first step toward restoring faith in our broken government. Trump thinks he can just veto anything he doesn’t like. He has never comprehended the Constitution and the checks and balances of the three branches of government, but there is something more onerous and dangerous that Trump has wrought on America and now the world.

In an interview with the far-right radical website Breitbart, Trump said, “I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump — I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point and then it would be very bad, very bad.”

That certainly sounds like a warning from a President who thinks he can harness those in law enforcement for their support and violence when we get to that “certain point” he references. Trump telegraphs messages to those people he believes would do dirty deeds to help him stay in power. He is clearly using fear as a weapon against the people and that makes him an enemy of the people, now doesn’t it? He is challenging the very notion of peaceful transition, which is a hallmark of our democracy.

Just hours after Trump used those words in that interview, something really bad happened in New Zealand. 49 people were gunned down during Friday prayers by a self-described white supremacist. Before you scream that I am using that event to shit on Trump, you should read the 87-page manifesto that the killer posted before his rampage, which was streamed live on social media.

The killer, in his self-written Q and A, asked himself, “Are you a supporter of Donald Trump? As a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose? Sure.” He declares that he should be remembered, “I did my best to prevent the death of my race.”

His manifesto continues, “Won’t your attack result in calls for the removal of gun rights from Whites in the United states? Yes, that is the plan all along, you said you would fight to protect your rights and the constitution, well soon will come the time.” Isn’t that what Trump was really saying? Who have we become?

In his writing, the accused killer used the word “invader” 55 times. Donald Trump has called people seeking asylum in the US “invaders.” Here are his words, “This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!” As the headline in the Washington Post read, “An ‘invasion of illegal aliens’: The oldest immigration fear-mongering metaphor in America.”

Near the end of his rambling statement, Brenton Tarrant, a white man from Australia, said, Eventually, when the white population of the USA realizes the truth of the situation, war will erupt. Soon the replacement of the whites within Texas will hit its apogee and with the non-white political and social control of Texas; and with this control, the electoral college will be heavily stacked in favour of a democratic victory so that every electoral cycle will be a certainty.”

I truly believe that Donald J. Trump has some questions to answer. And whether he does it under oath or not, he must address the people of the world and be clear in a denouncement of this hate. The people of the United States need to know, in no uncertainly terms, that this President agrees to throw away his dog whistle and put down these people. When terrorists, white supremacists and neo-Nazis say they are inspired by him, something is WRONG. Every American should pressure the Congress to change this script before it’s too late.


Gold, God, Guns & Goofballs shows how we’ve wasted our GOLD on bad wars and corruption. While GOD is there for many people as a spiritual enrichment and the provider of glowing feelings, the truth is just praying and believing will not change our major arc. We don’t determine who gets a GUN. We aren’t sure if we have paramilitary groups ready to storm the White House or a White Castle. There is no control of weapons. The GOOFBALLS with the power constantly try to manipulate us into spending more money on bombs and tanks and wars. When all of our institutions are infected with neglect and fall in disrepair, we will only have ourselves to blame. This book is not an antidote for the left or right, it’s an accelerant to move the middle off their collective asses to go do something positive for America.

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!

Trump Needs to Read the 1st Amendment

Recently, the President’s chief of staff said that the administration had looked into changing the libel laws in the United States. Donald Trump has constantly used the power of the law suit to attack his “enemies” in business. He, if given the power, would like to control the press by the use of intimidation and fear. Locking journalists up might not change the way they source or write their stories, but it would spell the end of our democracy as we know it.

Sure, if the libel laws were changed it would help Mr. Thin-Skin quell his fragile ego, but at what cost? You could haul reporters into court when they wrote something bad about you, but there is a reason the 1st Amendment was first.

Remember what is says Mr. Trump: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

In these 45 words, the framers established the real core beliefs of America. I have always said to my gun totting friends, you can have your 2nd amendment as long as you protect my 1st amendment. But the first amendment says so much more than giving reporters the right to say what they want.

When Trump signed his executive order yesterday (5-4-2017) thinking he was ending the Johnson Amendment, which bans tax-exempt organizations like churches from political speech and activities, he was dead wrong. The only way the Johnson Amendment can be eliminated is with a vote in Congress. And if the Donald took the time to read the 1st Amendment he would see that he cannot establish a religion nor prohibit the free exercise of a religion. So, there is no need for him to sign a worthless piece of paper.

The President, under the Constitution, cannot “abridge” freedom of speech. That means he cannot reduce, curtail or cut freedom of speech and this includes the press.

The 1st Amendment also gives the people the right to assemble in a peaceful way and also gives them the right to petition the Government for redress, which can include compensation, reparations, recompense and damages. The founders were smart with their description of the Government as an entity that was not above the people. The Constitution is a valuable piece of paper.

That gets around to why we need a 2nd Amendment. The founding fathers understood that at any time, a tyrant, or a king, or over-zealous leader might attempt to take away the freedoms of the citizens, thus the reason why we must have the right to bear arms. If someone attempts to take these freedoms away, the framers were more than hinting at a solution. They were giving tacit approval for armed rebellion.

It says:  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.

You might be surprised that this blogger would say, YES to the 2nd Amendment, because we just might need that “well-regulated” group of Americans to take our country back one day. It doesn’t say anything in those 26 words about mentally challenged people or some ideological driven group of radical terrorists getting guns, does it?

Gun control measures are just part of the “well-regulated” part of the right. Trump is a puppet of the NRA and always has been. It’s rather ironic that the man who rails against lobbyists is controlled by one of the most powerful pro-gun groups. They not only support him, they give him money. In short, the great “swamp drainer” is nothing but a good-for-nothing politician with his hand in the pockets of BIG GUNS. Sad!
