50 – The Arrogance of Conservative Politicians

From an article yet to be published – Too much has been coopted by the conservatives of this country, too many inherently American values have been forcibly taken by the conservative wing of our political body in order to be used to push their partisan agenda that first and foremost benefits the elites, and secondly preys on the good nature of American citizens in order to convince them that the they have the truest claim to the identity of that of a true American. They talk of American values, and our cherished constitution – yet they trample them through voter suppression, gerrymandering, and their obstructionist hardliner ways. They speak of family values, and morals yet the man they so callously back has been accused of numerous violations of any definition of moral goodness, a man who has professed heresies that are antithesis to their supposed Christian values.

The rights co-opting of our values, traditions and institutions MUST END.

48 – My Thoughts On Impeachment

There is an overwhelming preponderance of evidence to suggest the President of the United States is a man of immortality of the highest order. Policies aside – the sanctity of the Oval Office and the Office of the Presidnecy are at stake. The foundations of our government in reality and symbolically are at stake. The Congress has a constitutional duty, and a moral obligation to impeach the President of the United States.

47 – Muellers Statements Today

Today the former special consul Rober Mueller gave a press conference where he made a public statement regarding the release of his report and on the ongoing back and forth between The White House, Congress and the Media. Mueller in so few words, referred to Congress that Impeachment proceedings ought to begin against the President. That if the Donald J. Trump was not a sitting president, he would be indicted. That if they had confidence that the President did not commit a crime, then they would have said so. Rober Mueller today showed the American public and the world how deeply in a crisis we are truly in.

46 – In Support of Free, Fair, and Just Trade

Free trade holds the promise of bringing the nations of the world closer together in economic interdependence, and fosters peace among the peoples of the world. When we are one, the chance of conflict lessens – however free trade as it stands works to line the pockets of politicans, businesses and barons of industry rather than work for the workers. We need free trade to foster peace, fair trade to make the rights of workers uniform around the world, and just trade to uplift the peoples of the world from poverty.
