nope

So who is the real criminal? The one supported by all these Delawareans… What lack of judgment must one have to choose a criminal over a saint?

These people are simply delusional… In their warped minds they presuppose this to be true and all evidence otherwise be damned.

Hillary has to be guilty of something because she just has to be, and Donald has to be innocent of everything because he just has to be….

When put in plain language such thinking is obviously a product of a sick mind.

There are no politics involved in this stark fact.  It is what anyone and everyone can see watching every video of both candidates from beginning of this campaign to its end… When reviewing such, there are a few bad moments in one campaign and a few good moments in the other… The the total preponderance of evidence matches the verdict of the three times we saw them on stage together… One is responsibly capable of handling the duties thrust on her; the other is not.

Any other conclusion is delusional.

it always comes back to this:  Hillary has to be guilty of something because she just has to be, and Donald has to be innocent of everything because he just has to be….

Now as a society it is obvious that we do have a segment of our population that is insane. But that does not mean we have to follow them. What usually happens is that as long as the insane are no danger to themselves or anyone else, we tolerate them.  When they become a danger, we lock them up.

The repeated chants based on nothing to “lock up” the leading candidate by followers of the minority party, show just how dangerously off-bent all these people are.

It is as if they have been released upon us by a bad television mini-drama and are ranging through our towns looking for brains to eat…

You laugh, but the similarities are scary.

There is no semblance of being a human being in saying: Hillary has to be guilty of something because she just has to be, and Donald has to be innocent of everything because he just has to be….

That is just being … a “being”…..   one in whom these crackpots still vociferously support…..

None of these should get into office.  None.

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….

Sadly these are all the Republicans running for state office, but two… I must isolate and mention both of those two 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 Delawarean Republicans who have repudiated history’s worst candidate,  Donald Trump,  are:

Meredith Chapman    Senate District 8

James Spadola    Senate District 1

That is what Hillary Clinton is. That is what the Democrats offer. The same boundless confidence that came out of Independence Hall in 1788. The same boundless confidence as we pushed our nation Westward over fresh laid iron rails in the 19th Century. The same boundless confidence as we fought two major wars across two different oceans at the same time. That same boundless confidence as we elected our first WWII fighter into the Presidency. That same boundless confidence with which we stared down the Soviet Union. That same boundless confidence with which we landed on the moon and watched with wonder as our vehicles drove around on Mars. That same boundless confidence as we faced down the Y2K problem. That same boundless confidence with which we said we’d avenge 9/11….That same boundless confidence with which we once faced down our deficit and had our budget completely under control…..

America has always vacillated between moments of boundless confidence and timid fear. Ironically it has always been the Democrats who gave us confidence and Republicans who gave us fear.

The fear is a anathema. We have nothing to fear but fear itself and when we allow ourselves to fear we loose all of our potential. Fear bites into America’s productivity…

You can choose to believe we have to fear. Fear from Muslims. Fear from Mexicans. Fear from Afro Americans. Fear from powerful women. Fear from orange haired sexual predators riding buses in 2005… But though that is only one option, it is not the only option. We can also make assumptions that all people are like us, some bad and some good, and work to elevate the good ones, and find and punish the bad ones. Just no profiling. Just don’t use race or religion as weapons against all one group’s right to freedom, which will become by accretion, weapons against our rights to freedom…

We always will have enemies for we are the most successful and powerful nation on earth. But we have two ways of combating those.. One the cheerful approach, exuding from our pores like Britain had when they were being bombed into oblivion but prevailed. Or the sunken, desperate gloom such as that hung over Berlin as its enemies surrounded it from all sides. One attitude wins against great odds; the other loses against the smallest of threats.

So which one describes you? Gloom, death, destruction, fear, hate, and loathing? or the boundless confidence in America’s progress?

You choose our future… it is serious. There are no do-overs…

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……….

trump-clinton-2nd

First Hillary… Here are all the Hillary legal issues…

1973 – Trump Organization sued by Federal Government for housing discrimination.

1978 – Trump Organization accused of violating consent decree.

1979 – Trump allegedly investigated for bribery. [Voice’s Wayne Barrett, “Trump: The Deals and the Downfall.”]

1980 – Trump subpoenaed in relation to an FBI Investigation of Corruption at the Trump Tower construction site.

1987 – The FTC asks the Justice Department to prosecute Trump. [Feds settle suit for $750,000.] Yet the FTC, according to antitrust legal expert Robert Skitol, believed that Trump had used “put-call option agreements” with Bear Sterns to mask his large purchases of stock in each of these companies.

1988 – The U.S. Attorney’s Office Investigates Trump‘s role in the sale of two apartments to an alleged member of the mob.

1991 – A Trump casino admits breaking the law by having Fred Trump buy uncased chips.

1991 – “As reported by USA Today earlier this year, Trump Plaza casino was fined $200,000 for discrimination after it was determined that the casino’s pit bosses would rotate craps dealers who weren’t white men off the tables when alleged mobster Robert Libutti came to play. Later that year, Trump’s Atlantic City casinos were also fined for giving Libutti nine luxury cars.”

1992 – Congressional investigators link Trump business to Asian organized crime interests. One was indicted on a charge of providing kickbacks to executives at Trump Castle. More specifically, Danny Leung was a vice president at Trump Taj Mahal who was known by law enforcement to be linked to organized crime syndicates.

2000 – Trump fined $250,000 for improper lobbying [He hid behind 3 separate shell companies and ordered to publicly apologize to the Mohawk Indians for slanderist advertising.]

2002 – Trump faces SEC enforcement action for misleading earnings reports. “… found that Trump Hotels, through the conduct of its chief executive officer, its chief financial officer and its treasurer, violated the antifraud provisions of the Securities Exchange Act by knowingly or recklessly issuing a materially misleading press release.” [The SEC accepted an undisclosed offer and issued a cease-and-desist order.]

2010 thru 2013 – States investigate Trump University. In 2010, the state of Texas opened an investigation into the business practices of Trump University, the now-infamous real estate seminar program run by Trump. Three years later, the state of New York filed a fraud lawsuit against the business. (The recent legal fight over Trump University has been centered on class-action lawsuits against the “school” filed in California.)

2011 – Trump settles with Trump Soho buyers after a criminal investigation into sales in the property was opened.

2016 – The state of New York investigates the Trump Foundation.

2016 – The Trump foundation pays a fine for making an improper political contribution.

2016 – Trump lawyers given court date over lawsuit alleging rape of 13-year-old.

Oh, my bad… Those were Trump’s….

Hillary Clinton has not been charged with any criminal wrongdoing requiring her to appear in any court of law….

What about all the scandals you ask?  Like emails, Benghazi, and Whitewater?  Well, those were scandals only in the Republican party, which if they had control over either house of Congress, could convene hearings to embarrass someone who might one day win the presidency by such large of margins it would end up destroying their party…

Big difference.

On a recent meme showing a comparison of Trump versus Hillary, listing the negatives.of both, the only one available for Hillary was her bad choice of email server…..

This prompted a discussion casting in doubt even whether that was a bad choice.  The polls show her to be locked in;  Hillary is going to be president. We can never know what could have happened if she’d used the state.gov for all her emails…

But we have an idea.  Seeing how her opposition is peering in excess over every one of the leaked emails from John Podesta, one can easily gather how difficult her campaign would have been if she had to answer every email in real time by every questioning FOIA’d requester …

With so much baggage, she would not only have missed the plane to the White House, but she’d have never gotten through the front door…

This is what all advised her to do.. Colin Powell.  Condi Rice.  and the exiting Republican Party… All knew the political expediency of not having to always backtrack to the distant reaches of memory, and instead moving forward towards implementing ones agenda.

The real truth in this world is that success itself, writes the best plans of actions… Nothing else.  And she is going to be president.

Would that have happened if she’d used the required email protocol?   Most likely, no. Therefore, as Comey originally said, no prosecutor would find anything on her private email server for which to prosecute, and therefore there was no fallout across 8 years from anything she did.  But it is very likely there would have been unsurmountable obstacles if she’d gone the other way around…

If anyone had any doubts, it would be erased by seeing how Republican operatives are combing through the Podesta leaks, twisting headlines to imply one thing, whereas the body of the email sends the resounding message of……”duh, that’s not what it says”…We’ve only had three weeks of this.  Imagine the last 8 years?

In hindsight, the use of a private email was brilliant.

America can only move forward under Hillary Clinton and full democratic House and Senate control.. Any other combination dooms us to the same stalemate and the same levels of ineptitude we’ve seen from almost all Republicans across this election….

Bottom line?  Her email server though currently a drag, was still the better choice for her to achieve the presidency.. And only if she achieves the presidency, will America prosper.

So, yeah. Her private email server will ironically, ….be what make America great again…

Donald Trump

The United States District Court in New Jersey ordered discovery on Donald Trump and the RNC’s poll monitoring efforts, with a hearing on November 4th, just days before the November 8th election…

It is in violation of the 1982 Consent decree.

If a 2 month campaign can’t be bothered to learn and follow the necessary rules of play, how on earth can you expect the nation to survive 4 full years of a Trump presidency?

You can’t. No one can…

Yet despite that… These Delawareans STILL support Trump…   They simply don’t care what happens to America…  They are not Lee Greenwood material… They belong in the Soviet Union…

It is ok to be a Republican if you don’t support Trump.  This is in no way partisan… This is about common sense and the following people simply don’t have any…

Surely, you’re not going to defend them, are you?  Yet they are on your ballot and will be your representative UNLESS enough of you vote against them… (Hint: you should vote against them…)

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 Courtroom Clown Donald Trump,  are:

Meredith Chapman    Senate District 8

James Spadola    Senate District 1

Mother Jones has reviewed that report and other memos this former spy wrote. The first memo, based on the former intelligence officer’s conversations with Russian sources, noted, “Russian regime has been cultivating, supporting and assisting TRUMP for at least 5 years. Aim, endorsed by PUTIN, has been to encourage splits and divisions in western alliance.” It maintained that Trump “and his inner circle have accepted a regular flow of intelligence from the Kremlin, including on his Democratic and other political rivals.” It claimed that Russian intelligence had “compromised” Trump during his visits to Moscow and could “blackmail him.”

Wonder if she was older than 13?

(And if you want to know why Comey WILL be fired, it is because the FBI must remain non partisan at all times, and he made a huge announcement against Clinton’s emails when there was nothing there, yet said nothing about this, allowing this guy withing knocking distance to the White House… It must be either both, or neither… That didn’t happen.)
