There were no new emails to throw in doubt her former clearing by the FBI…

Baseless charges thrown out to hurt her chances. That is all. I guess it is good to have it happen because now, all know that unlike her opponent who…………..

…. who called all Mexicans rapists, claimed the president was born in Kenya, proposed banning an entire major religion from entering the United States, mocked a disabled reporter, said John McCain wasn’t a war hero because he was captured, attacked the parents of a fallen soldier, bragged about committing sexual assault, was accused by 12 women of committing sexual assault, said some of those women weren’t attractive enough to sexually assault, said more countries should get nukes, said the military should be forced to commit war crimes, said a judge was biased because his parents were Mexicans, said women should be punished for having abortions, incited violence at his rallies, said global warming was a hoax sponsored by the Chinese, called for his opponent to be jailed, declared bankruptcy 6 times, bragged about not paying income taxes, stiffed his contractors and employees, lost a billion dollars in one year, scammed customers in his fake university, bought a six foot tall painting of himself with money from his own fake foundation, has a trial for fraud coming up in November for that same fake foundation, insulted his opponent’s looks, insulted his opponent’s wife’s looks, bragged about grabbing women by the pussy, ,….. …

Hillary is an amazing person… even a highly partisan FBI agrees…

If you were holding back on voting for her out of confusion, rest well.. she is cleared…

There are those in whom we have great respect across most of their lives.  Then suddenly they seem to abandon reason.

Why should anyone vote for Jill Stein?  Great question and one I’d never investigated up to now. So I looked.

Shocked. In her views she is no different than Clinton?  Don’t believe it?  Here is her questionnaire compared with Hillary’s, filled out..

Check it out. When it comes to individual rights, both were identical except for their belief in God. Hillary would keep “God” on money, Jill would be against it. On domestic issues, they agree on everything. The small distinction is that Hillary does not agree that marijuana is a gateway drug,  Jill “strongly” does not agree that it is. A very small degree of separation between them. On economic issues they are identical across the board. in both their choices and levels of degree in which they support them.

Only in international relations and defense is there is some gap of difference. One should expect such from someone who has represented our nation around the world  versus someone postulating their positions from the couch in their living room.  Even here the differences are often only in degree of being against or strongly against..  Hillary is definitely not a Republican as she is sometime called by leftists.  The only major difference one can quantify between these two candidates  across the whole spectrum, is that Hillary does not believe in isolationism or running away from every conflict, and Jill Stein does.

That means there has to be something else motivating Stein voters.  What could it be?

It could be personal dislike.  Many people do vote off of their emotions and therefore they may not like Hillary not for anything she has ever done, but just in how she fills out a pantsuit.  Rumors are that Susan Sarandon doesn’t like Hillary because George Clooney does. Such dislike if true certainly is not misogyny, easily ruled out when comparing against the gender of Jill Stein, (but perhaps a factor when compared against Gary Johnson).

It could also be a religious fervor for third parties.  “Woo hoo, I’m a Green Party/  All the bad stuff you Democrats and Republicans have done to the globe does not reflect on me/ Since my party has never held responsibility, we are clean of all your bad decisions/ Buy voting Jill I’m clean as snow”..

Or it could be a European specialist highly familiar with the third party system across the pond and wishing to implement that system here…

Or it could be someone who just doesn’t care about anything (historians called them anarchists 100 years ago) and is happy watching the world burn.

But we CAN rule out some other reasons.

Ones support for Jill Stein is not for the candidate herself.  Most people know very little about her. Is she bi or straight?  See?  You don’t know.  What personal experiences make her more qualified than either Hillary Clinton or Gary Johnson, or Donald Trump or Evan McMillian? See?  Speechless.

To pull the lever or push the button for Jill Stein means that you are voting for a superfluous cause, a sprite of your own imagination.  As in for example: “I’m voting to make the world more liberal.”.

Ok, having been there, that is understandable and the first sane thing you may have said… Because if that is what you believe, voting for Jill Stein is at least one way of expressing it.

But what does that vote get you?  Right now she is on track to come close to her last attempt at the presidency, 4 years ago… 469,501 voted for her… 0.36% of the vote.  This year it may be less.   That is less than 150 people per each county in the entire United States… That per county level is fewer than the numbers that vote in one ward or precinct.

So what statement are you trying to make by voting for someone who averages out to 150 voters out of every single county?  The analogy might as well be “not voting”, such a correlation seems “right-on” here.

By now I’m sure you’ve heard over and over and over and over that if you are a current Trump supporter and vote for Jill Stein it is a vote for Hillary and vice versa.   That keeps getting said because there is some truth to that.  If you were in a three way and the two others got serious with each other, you get shut you down; you lose out.  Same way in a general election… To matter as a person, as a voter, you really can’t be casting your vote to someone who when they ran before, against the same two machines, against the same two ideologies, with the same candidate on the same platform, only muster 3 out of every 1000 people.

Imagine if those 3 activists, instead of being on the outside in a club of their own, were arguing their cases inside a party that will take in 550 our of every 1000 people. Do you have a better chance to win friends and influence people over to your cause?  Of course you do…

Being a partner of one of the most powerful influences on our national destiny, you have far more clout in achieving your aims and dreams, than you would many miles away, crawling to the surface of a dark Scottish loch….*(Police reference)

So what sense does that make to anonymously state your liberalness by voting on a third party?

Now there are times for a third party, don’t get me wrong… On local levels a third party, even Greens, can field a better candidate than the other two local party apparatus’s can muster … Because smart concerned local people sometimes don’t belong to parties.  I’ve supported many such candidates because I want to make the world a better place.  So don’t misinterpret this piece as anti-third party…

But the difference there is that those candidates offered a quality choice, something completely different from the other two available options.  That is not the case here.   Jill Stein is the same as Hillary and yet Stein couldn’t handle the presidency.  In her defense, very few people can. Jill has never held elected office. In fact the argument can be made, that since Trump (who also has never held elective office) would have the backing of a majority of people, he could get enough cooperation and though he knows nothing, the system would respond by putting in his party’s people who could handle things “under” him…
But the Greens in that spot would face animosity.  Instead of voting for Jill Stein this time, Greens need to get serious.  They need to remove themselves from only offering simply an ineffective vanity campaign, and look to begin offering a real one. Which means they need to lobby a top named Democrat or two to jump and pull their high talent and followers across the divide, so their party immediately has clout on the national stage.  Fronting Bernie is what I’m talking about.

Simply put.  Politics is about power and who gets to make the decisions.  Bad as the process can sometimes be for liberals it still beats the historical precedent of war.  We are so much better off to decide our differences without war.   But it is idealistic to think that politics is anything less than a war that decides who wields power…

This year the decisions between the two powerful candidates could not be more stark. The competence level between the two power candidates could not be more stark.  If you think Global Warming should be stopped; if you think national parks should be off limits to oil and gas drilling;  if you think we should save the Monarch Butterfly with government intervention; if you think we should lable GMO’s;  if you think we should pursue the kind treatment of farm animals;  if you think we should accelerate the making of electric cars; if you think we should honor native American’s requests not to uproot their ancestral land simply to benefit some investors; …..

Your vote for Jill Stein, face it or not, is a vote against all of the above…  You actually take away the clout you could have influenced from the left wing of the Democratic party, and removed it completely out of the equation… So when Democrats have to vote inside their caucus to determine their stance and future actions, because you or your candidates were not there to push the liberal agenda, when those votes get taken, results tend to be weighted towards the more conservative of the Democratic party, simply because there were more of them to vote because you and your contingent removed yourselves from the action. …

That is how, a vote for Jill Stein, makes it harder to achieve your objectives than had you either voted for Hillary or Trump…

You say the Democrats are not left enough?  Well if anything Bernie shows us, that was because the left had up to then, abandoned acting politically to influence the party…

No one is going to tell you how to vote.  You may be so mad at the first paragraph these words down here never see the light of day… But if it does, add it to you plate as you decide over the next few days how badly you really desire to influence your own future and save the planet…

 

women-of-the-cross

To those men and women who support Trump, you don’t matter.  To them, you are baby makers, arm candy, something to oogle, someone to cook dinner; you are Adam’s rib and exist only for the pleasure of men…

This goes straight up the ladder to Billy Graham and Jerry Falwell, Jr.  Those who fervently support Donald Trump at the expense of all those around them having two X chromosomes.  You are inferior. You are lesser than…

Some of these men of God will have the guts to actually say this, others will simply prove it to you. They are proving it to you now. Listen to them….

Men on the Christian Right will loudly proclaim that all men act like Trump, all men talk this way, all men think this way. But no, not even close to being true; not even a majority of men do—but they all do.

Consider this:

“If these professed men of God truly acknowledged your inherent value, they would be fiercely defending you right now, instead of Donald Trump. They would be openly condemning such disregard for the image of God within you, and sharply severing their ties with him—but many of them they aren’t. They’re making excuses. They’re blaming the victim. They’re doubling down. They’re digging in their manly heels right now.”

The sole reason they aren’t defend you is because in their eyes, you are less an object to be defended than a misogynist bigot named Donald Trump… They are telling you your status… They are telling you where you stand…. To them you don’t merit defending; not your intelligence or your gifts or your worth….

“They don’t believe you have the right to say or no or to be offended. If anything, they believe you should be flattered. This is the hubris of men who think God made you as an accessory.”

You may think the problem is with God. No, the problem is with them.  God did not make you to be their slave.  God made you to be a person who feels, thinks, and has the capacity to act…

Sadly anyone who still supports Trump, either man or women, holds on to this ancient philosophy that was predominantly formed by a woman’s lack of birth control.  Your ancestors couldn’t hunt; they had to stay home.

This is not 6000 BC.  Before us all stands a woman like you who is about to shatter the glass ceiling. A woman who has been victimized like you by countless slurs, millions of pejoratives, and bad-mouthed to oblivion and back.. She is still standing, she is still fighting, and she represents all of you as smart, personable, individuals who should get the opportunity just like men, to run your life the way you see fit.

In the voting booth, your secrets are safe… It is time to stick it to all men who have ever put you down.  It is time you too become individuals able to stand up for something unique instead of always being the mister’s misses….

In Delaware, these people listed below need to pay a price for supporting Trump.  As you vote for Hillary, please vote for the opposite of these below who have (like those silent men and women), cheered Trump on as he belittles women over and over and over…

Real men of God respect women. Real men of God condemn Donald Trump’s words, and the culture of disrespect, dehumanization, and misogyny they breed. Real Christian men condemn when the Bible is used to justify your minimizing and harassment and assault. Real Christian men will not stand for these things and that real Christian men ”are standing with you.”

The following, however, are not acting like real Christian men and women……….

These two very special people, the only two Delawarean Republicans who have repudiated history’s worst candidate,  Donald Trump,  are:

Meredith Chapman    Senate District 8

James Spadola    Senate District 1

They support Donald Trump…

Which either means they don’t believe anything Donald Trumps says, or they don’t care about anything Donald Trump says, or they don’t understand anything Donald Trump says, or they are misleading the Delawarean public for unknown reasons….

This should raise giant flags… as if someone were supportive of Hitler… When you are a Republican and you don’t call out the leader of your party for what he is, you are a supporter of all he stands for…

It is not different from wearing a red arm band with a swastika in a white circle in Germany in 1932… No one has to ask you if you support Hitler back then, it was rightly assumed.

If you do not come out public and declare Trump unfit for office, as a Republican it means you support him… Flat out, unequivocally…

Even though you know the person privately does not support Trump because you’ve known and liked them for years, the very fact that they did not publicly come out and say “Vote for me; I do not support Trump” means they are not fit for office… :

Look at who they are silent about….

Someone who called all Mexicans rapists, claimed the president was born in Kenya, proposed banning an entire major religion from entering the United States, mocked a disabled reporter, said John McCain wasn’t a war hero because he was captured, attacked the parents of a fallen soldier, bragged about committing sexual assault, was accused by 12 women of committing sexual assault, said some of those women weren’t attractive enough to sexually assault, said more countries should get nukes, said the military should be forced to commit war crimes, said a judge was biased because his parents were Mexicans, said women should be punished for having abortions, incited violence at his rallies, said global warming was a hoax sponsored by the Chinese, called for his opponent to be jailed, declared bankruptcy 6 times, bragged about not paying income taxes, stiffed his contractors and employees, lost a billion dollars in one year, scammed customers in his fake university, bought a six foot tall painting of himself with money from his own fake foundation, has a trial for fraud coming up in November for that same fake foundation, insulted his opponent’s looks, insulted his opponent’s wife’s looks, bragged about grabbing women by the pussy, scheduled in court on charges of raping a 13 year old on December 16th,….. … how do you stay silent?

How do you stay silent?  How do you vote for this person?  How do you not create distance between yourself and this “thing” at the top of your ticket?

Do you think it will go away, if you ignore it?  If you say nothing?  If you keep your head down and focus just on yourself?

No, you ARE Republican. You are wearing that red armband with a big red R in a white circle.  This is who you are, unless you step out and say with a loud voice you do not support this “thing”  and you are totally against anything he does.  Silence is complicitness.

As voters we can do something about this…. we can compare the Republicans on our ballot (go to this Department of Elections website, put in your address to see the actual ballot at your polling place, it’s cool) to this list below and vote for their opponent… No matter who it is…

Yes, of course there are Confederate flag waving Trump extremists out there; but they are a very tiny minority.  We know he won’t win but that does not mean we too should accept these things as “part of life” and continue to put in those who silently supported that “thing” by remaining silent… Humanity across the globe is counting on all of you to vote against these listed below…. who by being cowards and not withdrawing their support, imply they silently stand solid on all that Donald Trump stands for….

kids-map

Scholastic does mock elections which historically predict the winner.  The above is this years compiled across the country.

The kids got this…

I post this because many of my Republican friends are in denial.  And my third party friends are in la la land…. From this map, the latter need to move to Washington DC.

All rationality dissipates the closer one gets to election.  Really. It’s no fluke. It dissipates in every close contest be it a boxing match, World’s Series, or high school football game. Things get said in the heat of the moment that on reflection weeks later, probably should never have been said otherwise.  It comes from being in the heat of the moment, we weaponize our speech. Me and you, we all do it, unless of course we’ve spent considerable time on Dagobah with Yoda learning how to control our anger by using the “Force”..

That being few among us, it is understandable that those on both sides skimming (in a panic), would quickly pass over this post in search of a more reassuring tidbit promoting proof that their side will win over the other…. That is understandable. however, this will still stay up for the ages to remind ourselves of what what could have been; how we should have behaved; which choice we should have taken…

That said, sometimes the best advice is old advice (and I believe it originally came from ancient battles where hand to hand fighting was the norm)… When confusion is rampant, it is best to step back, look around horizon to horizon, and take a deep breath.

You are voting for someone to run our country, not for your favorite cartoon character. Like Brexit, this is serious.  The traits one would need for president should at least rise to the level required for running ones employment, tons of little stuff needing ones endorsement day after day after day, and hopefully some additional time to make your mark on some big changes you want to make into policy…

Too often I hear a pronouncement begin with:   “Oh, but I don’t like…..” as if liking someone was the best criteria for running our country.  There really is no relation between “like” and “ability”.. Some people you like may be douche bags, but you still like them anyway. Having a likable douche bag for president was actually tried during the 1920’s and it gave us hands-off government which plunged the globe into a Great Depression. Likewise, the winner of “who would you rather have a beer with” contest of 2000 gave us 9/11, two Middle East Wars, $4 trillion in “new” debt, and our version of The Great  (2nd Republican Caused) Depression…

We really cannot be distracted by a popularity contest, or past loyalties to one team versus another… Your choice first needs to be solely based on qualifications.Would you want a plumber running your hospital?  Would you want a ghost writer fixing your sewer and your stopped up toilet?  Would you want the new-hire on the bottom rung  of your workplace whatever that position is, to become the person in charge and running your organization as CEO?

Probably not.. Why?  Because if they screw up and ruin your company in a few short months, you are out of a job and all your financial plans for the future are now up in the air…

It’s exactly the same with running the country.

All of us need you to seriously decide if you truly feel safe and comfortable with your presidential prospect running either your business or office where you work, before you vote for them.

Can they flat out do the job that is expected of them?  You are, after all their human resource officer.  You are on task for the quality of hires you provide to the organization. Will the hire you vote in, be able to do the job? The whole job?

A lot of people are ignoring this. “He tells things like they are.”  “She’s a crook”.  “Both are shitty so I’m voting 3rd Party to protest.” So I’m just mentioning it here so you also put this into your calculations before making the choice of the century so far.

It boils down to a simple qualifying question that all candidates should pass before you go onward in analyzing them to make your decision.

Would you want your chosen candidate running your job?  If absolutely not, why are you doing this to yourself and sticking it to everyone else in the process?

Once you’ve determined you are comfortable in their ability to actually run the office he/she is seeking,  which is to keep the government running while they try to enact their agenda and selling points…. the next step should be whether they will go in the direction YOU want them to go?

Too often we reverse these priorities (especially towards those running for Congress). We get a confirmation on their quoted destination and vote them in, realizing much too late that they’ve never driven a car, looked at a map, or made a reservation.  

“Load up the truck you’all;
we’re moving to … Beverly”

This is one of the reason our Congress is filled with Tea Party idealogues who strut and fret over the direction our nation is taking, without doing anything solid to get us moving. This is ninety-five percent of the reason middle class white America is frustrated and hurting today: republicans in Congress.

To fix that, you need to make sure that whoever you put in Congress is at the very least, capable of doing what is needed, and only then, determine if they are going to go your way…  Because reversing those priorities, just doesn’t work….

Only then, if you are sure that both candidates are equally qualified, and both are going to go the way you want to go, do you then begin to look at character of the person. This is the part where liar accusations arise, infidelity issues arise, loyalty issues arise, RINO or DINO issues arise, or if you are Darrel Issa, actually arrest records for theft apply.

And here is the crowning point.  You may not like your boss at work (you may even hate him), but you don’t try to remove him because he is paying you to live a good living as it is. You put your own self interest far, far above your fuzzy feelings of ” like” and “dislike”..

There is precedent for what I’ve just said.  Harry Truman was washed up in 1948. Going into election day the polls were against him, the press was against him, and it looked like a rout was going to wipe him out, so much that a famous headline was preprinted and sent out which turned out wrong.

A lot of confused political people wondered what happened… What they found was that most people who had come home from Europe and Japan while he was president, who had gone to school or found new jobs while he was president, simply could not find it in themselves to remove someone who had shown themselves to be so skillful, so competent, and such a great American, no matter how much “character assassination” had been printed about him.  Although a lot of voters did vote for Dewey; more went for Truman because they felt they just couldn’t let a good man go.

Many people have been fed a lot of lies about Hillary. You can see it in the comments of some on this blog below articles about her. There is an entire industry of highly paid muckrakers funded exclusively by billionaires who drag her name through the mud. They’ve poured over ever word she’s ever said to try and find something they can hang her with, and across 25 years of national public life, to date they found nothing…

If you are making less than $250,000 a year, you should probably ask yourself “why” on earth these billionaires are spending so much of their money to tarnish just her above all other people?

They are afraid of her because she WILL fight for you…. 

In the real world you live in, the world of too little income coming in and too many bills to pay going out, that should be all the endorsement you could ever need…. One should always vote opposite of how billionaires tell you to vote….


No longer a secret because news media has reported it, our Senator is in the news due to a forgery made in Russia off his stationary.

“U.S. Senator Tom Carper, a Democrat on the Senate Homeland Security Committee, has referred one of the documents to the FBI for investigation on the grounds that his name and stationery were forged to appear authentic, some of the sources who had knowledge of that discussion said.”

No one is commenting on this officially at this time.

“U.S. intelligence officials (other than the FBI) have warned that a campaign backed by the Russian government to undermine the credibility of the U.S. presidential election could move beyond the hacking of Democratic Party email systems. That could include posting fictional evidence of voter fraud or other disinformation in the run-up to voting on Nov. 8, U.S. officials have said.”

In addition to the Carper letter, the FBI has also reviewed a seven-page electronic document that carries the logos of Democratic pollster Joel Benenson’s firm, the Benenson Strategy Group, and the Clinton Foundation, a person with knowledge of the matter said.

The document, (dated in the future) identified as a fake by the Clinton campaign, claims poll ratings had plunged for Clinton and called for “severe strategy changes for November” that could include “staged civil unrest” and “radiological attack” with dirty bombs to disrupt the vote….

I guess we should now expect fake dirty bombs to go off before election day.

Like the Carper letter, it was not immediately clear where the fraudulent document had originated or how it had begun to circulate….

On Oct. 20, Roger Stone, a former Trump aide and Republican operative, linked to this copy of the document on Twitter with the tag, “If this is real: OMG!!”  …. suggesting collusion between Trump and the group developing and spreading the disinformation.

Clinton campaign, Glen Caplin, said the document was a fake …

These fakes seem to appear to have foreknowledge of Comey’s announcement last Friday anticipating the poll swings which followed, and they seek to capitalize on the political divisions within the FBI.

Bottom line: a vote for Trump is a vote for Soviet Russia; whether you agree with him or not.

No… I’m not going to tell you how to vote.. You will have to do that on your own.  I’m just going to make it easier for you to discover who you think will represent your best interests when 2017 opens up the beyond…  But I did do one thing:  I highlighted those who support Donald Trump for President, a choice I use as the first test of character, in red.  If you are in a hurry, that alone tells you all you need to know…

Donald-Trump-Mocks-A-Reporter-With-A-Disability-And-Says-He-Doesnt-Remember

The following Delawareans have not publicly discounted Donald Trump.  They continue to support him, having never called him out for what he is… Here is an accurate description of what he is:

  • Trump’s casino bankruptcies, left investors holding the bag while he skedaddled with their money
  • Trump’s regular habit of refusing to pay contractors who had done work for him, especially if they were struggling small businesses who could not fight back.
  • Trump University scandal, which includes not only the people who got scammed and the Florida investigation, but also a similar story from Texas where the investigation into Trump U was quashed.
  • The Trump Institute, another get-rich-quick scheme in which Trump allowed a couple of grifters to use his name to bilk people out of their money
  • The Trump Network, a multi-level marketing venture (a.k.a. pyramid scheme) that involved customers mailing in a urine sample which would be analyzed to produce for them a specially formulated package of multivitamins
  • Trump Model Management, which reportedly had foreign models lie to customs officials and work in the U.S. illegally, and kept them in squalid conditions while they earned almost nothing for the work they did
  • Trump’s employment of foreign guest workers at his resorts, which involves a claim that he can’t find Americans to do the work
  • Trump’s use of hundreds of undocumented workers from Poland in the 1980s, who were paid a pittance for their illegal work
  • Trump’s history of being charged with housing discrimination
  • Trump’s connections to mafia figures involved in New York construction
  • The time Trump paid the Federal Trade Commission $750,000 over charges that he violated anti-trust laws when trying to take over a rival casino company
  • The fact that Trump is now being advised by Roger Ailes, who was forced out as Fox News chief when dozens of women came forward to charge him with sexual harassment. According to the allegations, Ailes’s behavior was positively monstrous; as just one indicator, his abusive and predatory actions toward women were so well-known and so loathsome that in 1968 the morally upstanding folks in the Nixon administration refused to allow him to work there despite his key role in getting Nixon elected.

    Why is this guy even on the ticket for president of the United States of America?  Oh yeah, that’s right. Republicans voted for him since he met their exceptionally high ideals as a candidate….

    The following Delawareans have either stated they publicly support Donald Trump for their President, or have been too timid to come out against him…. Silent support is as equally complicit as is wanton support.

    Lip service is one thing. Actions are something else.  All of the above at this late date are still supportive of Donald Trump and what he stands for….

    These are all the Republicans running for state office, but two… I must isolate and mention both of them and encourage you to vote them in over their democrat opponents (no loss there in both seats) to show the world that Delaware is not a satellite of Donald Trump….

    These two very special people, the only two republicans who have repudiated the Bankrupt Bank Robber Donald Trump,  are:

    Meredith Chapman    Senate District 8

    James Spadola    Senate District 1
