Forum Post: Don't worry so much about Trump.

Don't worry about Trump. He's just in passing. Worry about what is going on in the Democratic party. The Hag and her cronies are still there and operating. They're making all that Russia hacking stuff up to deflect the fact that they are non-starters in any sort of election where democracy works. What really needs to happen is that the rank and file of the Democratic party needs to boot them out. Get rid of them like one needs to get rid of a bad cancer. Otherwise, we can kiss the Democratic party, and our Nation good bye.

''Trump’s cabinet of billionaires and multimillionaires tells us a great deal about the administration’s underlying goals. ExxonMobil for secretary of state; General Dynamics and Boeing to head the department of defence; and the Goldman Sachs guys for pretty much everything that’s left. The handful of career politicians who have been put in charge of agencies seem to have been selected either because they do not believe in the agency’s core mission, or - do not think the agency should exist at all. Steve Bannon, Trump’s allegedly sidelined chief strategist, was open about this when he addressed a conservative audience in February. The goal, he said, was the “deconstruction of the administrative state” (by which he meant the government regulations and agencies tasked with protecting people and their rights). “If you look at these cabinet nominees, they were selected for a reason, and that is deconstruction.” - from ...

''Truth Has Become Un-American'', by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts:

Why just .. ''Worry about what is going on in the Democratic party''?! Have you seen GOP and tRUMP's 2017 Budget proposals?!! What's needed is A Pro-99% 3rd Party that is NOT in the grip of Corporations and US' 0.01% Oligarchy!!! United States of Amnesia need to be reminded that it has been done before:

Considering the situation, 3d party may actually be viable.

It may be easier though, to cut off the head of the Democratic party, and start a new there cause the infratstructure that a national party needs iis already in place.

I'd put my eggs in both baskets. 'cause the Hag and her cronies need to challanged and run out of town.

The day the New York Primary was so obviously stolen with fraud and felony by DNC and DWS for HRC was the day it was and should've been clear to all that not only was a 3rd Party necessary .. that it was totally possible BUT Bernie Bottled It!!! The "infrastructure" for The 3rd Party exists thanx to The Activist Network (many ex-OWS) that went into operation for and behind Bernie & it still exists for 2020!! Why it is needed is to be found via these words written by a Brown Uni. Political Economist Mark Blyth here ...

the assad interview was a good one - again

The stone cold and possibly sad fact, is that not too many people's minds are open enough to read that link above flip - so I am grateful to U for that & cross refer to my other recent reply to you on this matter:

Buddha could have been a top-notch project manager or sex/relationship therapist for Bernie's third party run. Silver Liberty coin's head must come up to win. It'll certainly be better than the orange carrot although both are from New York which is relatively expensive. I'll take a look at connections(Quantum physics[so did Jesus similarly regarding faith throwing a mountain to the sea] says, "Everything is possible - just don't ask why or how(have faith, bizarre is our universe!)" Electricity goes through very thin metal oxide insulators between connecting electrical metallic wires all the time).

I believe Bernie was on the take since day one. So, the possibilty of going 3d party never really existed. Question is how many of the Activist Network are on the take too? I do hope not too many. But we will see in 2020. Either way, what needs to be happening now, and in the meantime up 'till then, is the active attack on, and the destruction of the Democratic party elite 'cause they'll squelch any true progessive movement inside or outside the two regular parties.

''Bernie was on the take"?!!! Misguided and myopic, perhaps but ''on the take''?!! What's the evidence for that Shule?! For sure attack the Dem Party Establishment but Expose The GOP & tRUMP's cabinet of Billionaires, Mere Multi-Millionaires & Generals at the same time surely? What do you mean by: "Don't worry so much about Trump"?! Finally fyi, do consider:

Bernie was on the take"?!!!

No but it sure seems like it when he did not call out the DNC for it's crimes against him in securing sHillary's nomination and then instead of continuing (in a well prepared plan B) as the independent candidate ready willing and able to shatter both the republican party as well as the not so democratic party - instead he folds - misjudging the fact that sHillary could never get the support that he had - even with his endorsement.

Yeah it was a bonehead move to drop out and endorse sHillary - but I actually think that in some brain twisted not looking at the reality of the last forty years - that he actually thought that he was supporting democracy!

Talk about delusional thinking!

And YES frf - your looking to sHillary as a savior or even just as the lesser evil?

Totally Delusional!

Bernie being out of the equation - the only sane choice was Jill !

"They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us." - 1 John 2:19.

We certainly have a Washington D.C. outsider there for a change but he is demolishing the good, the bad, and the ugly willy-nilly it seems. I'm scared of the running of the bulls in the china shop. What will remain of the U.S.A.'s premium brand when it's over eventually?

Yes, I do have skin in this Trumpanzia(or is it Berlusconia II?)! Bernie & Jill could have done much good with a third party run.

Faux news needs to be attacked whatever their source is. Some semblance of Truth must be re-established. The right-wing nutjobs news is especially egregious.

I wouldn't say that Bernie was on the take from day one but he didn't have the guts to blow up the Demonkrapts' Partei even after the dirty tricks played upon him in New York.

The Demonkrapts were extremely corrupt under the cover. That's why I still consider Trump's winning positive even after his apparent inexperience had shown up. At least the Retard-I-Can'ts had the decency to respect the outcome of the process even though they had to eat crow. Aye, they are unusually generous in sharing this crow across much of Earth's Spacetime, contrary to their stingy nature.

Bernie could have formed a third party that had captured the Presidency but he only had the mentality of a battered lone politician who was scared of a Trump Presidency. Well, the Demonkrapts had made it impossible for Bernie to win and Bernie, the masochist, didn't have the chutzpah to go third party so under those circumstances, Trump was the BEST voice of the people! -- with our sordid slavery-compromise(in the Electoral College) legacy propelling him to the Presidency. Slavery is, was, and will be a curse forever(there are entire countries' populations being enslaved).

I'm more of a dog rather than a cat in nature so yeah I'll probably be fooled by this regime but consider that as a demonstration of Faith to Allahu Akbar! Try to fake-throw a ball for a cat to chase after. Mine just stares at the ball in my hand - there's no way to fool this smart(and yet dumb for the lack of higher level thinking of "trajectory") warm and furry cookie! It considered "The Twilight Zone" more boring than a carpet beetle.

I like dogs' nature better, very affectionate, and they are good for guarding properties but cats don't require walking them outdoors every day, rain, shine, sleet, or snow(i.e., picking up after the dogs' excrements or being run over by domestic terrorists of the "Eat Sleep Race"). Cats keep their fur warm and silky smooth, extremely nice to the touch. I was Not surprised at all, in our 2016 presidential campaign, to hear of the phrase, "grabbing the pussy."

Mammalian pets are "needy" in getting skin contacts, probably due to the release of serontonin from the skin upon being touched. That mechanism forms a part of the great Mammalian invention, parental-offspring Love. I didn't feel the same way towards the plethora of non-mammalian pets(insects[twitching and dancing mosquito larvae{from a live-alone neighborhood grandma's cistern regularly filled up by my big brother's yoke-fetched water}, a reddish-brown American cockroach{by far, the easiest low-maintenance pet to keep}, emerald-green iridescent Japanese beetles{from a rose hedge}, humongous black "coffin" fight crickets{some from funerary-ash urns, one of which held a deadly poisonous snake[probably a cobra since it could lift its triangular-shaped head high up off the ground] in a midnight encounter of the scariest kind}], arachnids[golden green wolf spiders], fish[mountain-stream zebra fish, shimmering rainbow-color-streak-tailed guppies, ..., bettas, goldfish], mollusks(snails), amphibians[tadpoles, frogs], reptiles[turtles], birds[budgederigas, parakeets, cockatiels, chickens, hens) that had lived and mostly died (some literally had wings, there were red-tailed hawks living nearby, and I couldn't climb trees fast so ... likely "'New Hampshired'['live free or die']" !) in my "Noah's Ark."

Areas with big wealth differences need dogs more. We accorded the highest military honors we could muster, playing Taps with multiple musical instruments by the children, to the burial at dusk of the most hard-working employee of all -- an identity-theft-defending gerbil warrior who had stayed up all nights, shredding papers with social security numbers on them. The most heart-breaking case of all was the hamster that had a stroke perhaps and I thought that it was due to severe dehydration(its water bottle was emptied) or perhaps cold temperature(it was a cold winter night). What a terrible misdiagnosis it was. One drop of warm water was fed to its mouth and it relaxed limp in my palm, dead, with its beady red eyes staring in a glaze at me. Jumping to conclusions led to a horrible consequence. Are there fMRI machines designed with hamsters in mind? I can see the bubblies snooping up our golden nectar.

Fly away, Tweety, my beloved budgie perched on the tree. "If you love them, set them free." The first live births I had witnessed as a young child were a swatted mother fly giving her many babies a chance outside of her dying body. "If they are truly yours, they'll come back. If they don't, they were never yours to begin with." With the silver Liberty coin of Trumpanzia on your side(heads), breathe free as a winner, always!

Thanks. I needed a read like that.
