Part 1
 
Let Me Count the Ways…We have sort of evolved into an online weekly magazine, providing all in one place the most quantity of important news Americans need to know.  In this edition, whether it’s the president’s dictatorial fascist intent (see Part 2), his deadly mishandling of a pandemic that also crashed the economy (see Part 3), his decidedly nefarious aim to lie & cheat to steal an election (see Part 3), his divisive & tone-deaf racist tropes (also see last couple posts from www.TheVORACS.com), or any number of other inexplicable presidential indiscretions, accusations & failings (see everything we’ve ever posted), Donald Trump is a legitimate threat to our constitutional republic.  Plus as we’ve been explaining for years in Part 1, there is overwhelming evidence Trump is a criminal. 
 
Yes, you read me correctly when I say criminal.  That much is clearly spelled out in our many prior posts covering multiple illegal activities, so those who want to know the facts only need to look back through our archives.  From Russia to Ukraine & multiple sexual abuse/assault allegations, plus various fraud cases involving campaign finance, taxes, charities, university students, contractors, MLM independent distributors & countless frivolous lawsuits brought by Trump, it’s obvious our president has been toying with, mocking & violating the law for decades.
 
There’s a Trumpeter Cubs fan who always replies to my messages & has been doing so for years, repeatedly trying to rebut my posts with the latest trifle echo-nonsense.  Here was my latest reply back to him…
 
Your Fox fake news & talk radio/social media echo-world is shrinking.  People are increasingly not buying the far-right spin, neither are they falling for the smears, distortions, conspiracies, gaslighting & scaremongering that now define your party.  That demagogic world of the Trumpest party may soon be obliterated & relegated to the dustbin of history.  In time you’ll come to realize that’s actually a good thing, since the GOP will have an opportunity to rise from the ashes & start over with a clean slate.  But they’ll need reformed with a platform based on honesty, integrity & inclusivity, pursuing the common good for all Americans while relinquishing the extreme tribal politics built on grievances & nihilism.  If they fail to do so, Republicans may never again be a viable national party.  That will be up to the GOP base, it’s your call which direction to take your party.  America desperately needs you to make the wise choice.
 
 
A case can even be made our president is the most dangerous & destructive criminal that ever lived in our land: https://www.salon.com/2020/06/23/gangster-in-the-white-house-noam-chomsky-says-trump-is-undeniably-the-worst-criminal-in-history_partner/.  It’s true, since a person like him rising to the highest office can do monumental & permanent damage.  Do not dismiss such a notion as crazy talk, since when you really study this man, the only logical conclusion is to come away as terrified by him as we are.  So if he’s not soon removed from office, it’s not such a stretch to fear the carnage he brings might ultimately destroy our nation.  We do have a few new links here related to Trump’s criminal behavior:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Part 2
 
An Autocrat in Our Midst…I’m so glad we can trust our prez, since we’ve been assured after the Singapore summit North Korea is no longer a nuclear threat (https://www.usnews.com/news/world-report/articles/2020-06-26/north-korea-threatens-us-with-nuclear-attack), in Helsinki there was no reason to think Russia interfered in the 2016 election, Trump never asked for a “favor” of Ukraine in exchange for military aid, the Saudi crown prince is not a murderer, Trump’s crowd sizes are always the biggest ever, everyone who wants a test can get a test & the virus is just fading away like a miracle. The list goes on and on about the crazy boasts, which based on WaPo tracking, Trump is soon to hit 20,000 verifiable lies while in office: https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/504267-a-new-age-of-lies.
 
I believe Donald Trump would make himself into a dictator if he could get away with it.  I truly do.  Given another 4 years as he continues to stack the courts & put loyal henchmen in key leadership positions, he just might get away with it.  Yes, the king & his crony lapdogs plus his echo-mouthpieces are a danger that extends far beyond whatever a person’s political viewpoints or ideologies might be.  Even GOP-supporting conservatives should want to save our constitutional democracy.  Everything about the president’s words, actions & personality traits suggest an aspiring rogue tyrant.  I suppose that’s why he fawns over & kowtows to other dictators around the world, as he wants to be like them. 
 
Our democracy is now under imminent threat.  The prez has shown us all along who he truly is, yet far too many Americans choose to dismiss or ignore the signs: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2020/jun/27/since-day-one-donald-trump-autocrat-making-surviving-autocracy-masha-gessen.  When somebody displays who they really are on a consistent basis over a long period of time, we’d better believe them!  Those who give Trump a pass on his bungling missteps or worse yet actually support his brazen authoritarian maneuvering, are complicit in the possible coming destruction of our human rights afforded by the Constitution: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2020/jun/27/masha-gessen-trump-is-worse-than-putin-surviving-autocracy-interview
 
Over the years in Part 2 we’ve given you thousands of reasons via news articles why Trump is a corrupt demagogue & dangerous tyrant completely unfit for office, so how about 100 more: https://thebulwark.com/100-reasons-trump-is-unfit-to-be-president/.  And as if we needed any more convincing, there’s plenty more telltale signs inside the links below.  I don’t put dozens of live links in the first part of every Part 2 just to fill up space, but the purpose is imploring all of us to take heed & take to heart that each article is part of the bigger picture on what an attempted fascist takeover really looks like!  I believe we’ve seen enough to know Trump for personal gain & unchecked power, will shred our checks & balances along with the Constitution if given half a chance.  He’s basically a self-serving grifter only seeking the glorification of Donald J. Trump: https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/504820-trumps-presidency-has-basically-been-a-self-serving-authoritarian-rule
 
This past week’s menu offers up another smorgasbord of Trump’s autocratic actions.  Featured in the links here are accounts of an AG attacking the rule of law in conjunction with his boss including blatant interference in the Flynn & Cohen cases, more fallout from Bolton’s book, the coming book from Trump’s niece, America’s international multimedia agency perhaps being hijacked into a conspiratorial mouthpiece, our withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty, more on Trump advancing crazy conspiracies & rhetoric, more news on SDNY prosecutor Berman’s firing & our country’s plummeting status in the world.
 
Below are also reports that Trump’s good ole buddy Putin put bounties on the heads of American soldiers (https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/russian-bounties-to-taliban-linked-militants-resulted-in-deaths-of-u-s-troops-according-to-intelligence-assessments/ar-BB1657dl?ocid=msedgdhp), yet not a peep was heard out of Trump which again raises the specter that Russia has him compromised.  If reports of a bounty are true & this proves to be yet another Trump cover-up, that is a very big deal!: https://www.rollcall.com/2020/06/29/29russianbou/ & also see https://thebulwark.com/the-russian-bounty-scandal-shouldnt-surprise-anyone/.  A few months ago did the prez ignore these intelligence reports much like he also ignored the reports on Coronavirus?  It seems he goes into a denial zone & freezes/chokes during a crisis. 
 
As you check out these titles, realize the bigger picture portrays the way our president is deliberately running roughshod over our constitutional rights & freedoms, which is exactly what may become our fate if this prez is not reined in & replaced.  We cannot allow the forces of tyranny to dismantle our democracy, but incrementally step-by-step that’s what they’re doing!:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Zelinsky Testimony
 
There was more riveting testimony in Congress this past week, as federal prosecutors described how Roger Stone was given special treatment by the DOJ due to his cozy relationship with Trump.  With Barr in charge, the nation’s Justice Dept. has become a lawless operation corrupted beyond measure at the top:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Fox Fake News & Their Assault on America
 
Part 2 is always well represented by articles on Fox News, since although other TV networks like OANN & Sinclair similarly lie repeatedly, no TV channel is doing more overall damage than Fox.  They have the reach to regularly deceive millions.  Especially during prime-time which gets the most eyeballs is when they tell the most lies.  And what is the cost of lies?: https://www.mediaite.com/tv/cnns-stelter-compares-trumps-coronavirus-mishandling-to-chernobyl-disaster-the-cost-of-lies-is-trust-and-human-lives/.  Fox fake news with their nonsensical rhetoric has blood on their hands: https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/media/the-data-is-in-fox-news-may-have-kept-millions-from-taking-the-coronavirus-threat-seriously/2020/06/26/60d88aa2-b7c3-11ea-a8da-693df3d7674a_story.html.  Check out more lies & destruction from Fox:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Other Extremist Echo-Sources & the Deleterious Effect it’s having on Devoted Followers
 
When I get replies to our post or am out & about, it’s stunning the higher number of people I’m hearing from who are buying into conspiracy theories that are waaaaaay out there!  Such kooky tales are coming mostly from the internet & disproportionately believed by right-wing adherents.  When did so many Americans become so gullible?  I have no idea how people like Bill Gates became the devil incarnate in their eyes.  And with huge headline emergencies like a pandemic & crashed economy, why do Confederate statues & a few square blocks in Seattle suddenly take on such added importance?  It seems when people see/hear the same basic lies/distractions over & over from multiple sources they trust, it’s easy to be deceived.  I keep saying while the mainstream media arguably leans left depending on one’s basic point of view, the echo-machine on TV, radio & the internet is constantly filled with falsehoods, distortions & conspiracies.
 
At this point, white nationalist terrorism is a far greater threat than whatever might be coming from Islamic radicals.  And one guess, which current president of the United States is inspiring them?  Check this out…On Sunday morning our racist-in-chief shared a “white power” video, further proof he’s stoking white supremacist terrorism.  Any time Trump is caught doing something asinine like this, he has a standard prepared strategy, either denying he knew at the time or saying he was joking while always playing the victim card.  In addition to the video from The Villages inside these links below, also look at this other incident: https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/06/trump-retweets-video-of-couple-pointing-guns-at-protesters.html & also see https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jun/29/st-louis-couple-point-guns-at-protesters  & also see https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/504974-trump-shares-video-of-homeowners-pointing-guns-at-protesters-in-st.  Why does our prez keep sharing this stuff?  Is he losing his mind?  And here is that white power retweet, whom the prez calls great people:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

If these white nationalist Trumpeters really want their freedom as they keep chirping about, they should adamantly commit to social distancing & wearing masks which might arrest this virus if we all were to do it.  Once the virus subsides, that’s the path to freedom as we could all return to normal lifestyles without the need for social distancing or mask wearing.  But failing to take the needed precautions now is freedom delayed.  The rest of these articles provide a disturbing portrayal of nutwings on parade who’ve been spreading their outrageous/hateful/evil garbage throughout our nation.  Yep, these folks are nuts!:

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Evangelicals Gone Astray
 
Trump unleashed his tirade in front of the biggest group of fake Christians ever congregated inside a megachurch: https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2020/6/24/1955591/-Trump-replaces-lock-her-up-with-lock-them-up-at-Arizona-rally.  As we’re seeing with evangelicals in general, their alliance with presidential demagoguery is not doing much to stop abortions, reflected in today’s Supreme Court decision: https://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2020-06-29/supreme-court-strikes-down-louisiana-abortion-clinic-law & also see https://www.rollcall.com/2020/06/29/supreme-court-strikes-down-louisiana-law-restricting-abortion/.  Any political power evangelicals have garnered looks to be fleeting, as they keep driving a wedge between the GOP & the majority of the American people, so expect their political browbeating to soon end.  I warned 4 years ago hitching our wagons to Trump was pure folly, suggesting at that time the GOP should punt & live to fight another day (I was basically still a Republican back then), but now the Trump effect could knock the party out of power for perhaps a generation.
 
I sometimes wonder if Hitler were resurrected & ran on a pro-life/anti-abortion platform, would my evangelical brethren support him too?  Ultimately, evangelicals may have permanently sabotaged their chance to restrict abortions in their fawning support for Trump, in that the president’s incompetent, divisive & corrupt leadership may soon condemn the GOP to minority status for a long time.  Plus with changing demographics, this Trumpist form of the GOP needs to be relegated to the dustbin of history or cease being a viable party.  And evangelicals with a tunnel-vision goal to stop abortions should realize their wish won’t be realized through allegiance to a strong-armed demagogue, but rather changing the hearts & minds of the majority of the American people.  It won’t be long before those religious believers realize this unholy alliance to their earthly king has backfired.  Christians of our faith are blowing their credibility & their witness: https://thebulwark.com/what-evangelicals-coziness-with-trump-puts-at-risk/.  Here’s more warnings of those determined to keep putting the crazy into our sovereign faith: 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Part 3
 
Starting Off with the Economy…Small businesses & workers are the lifeblood of the economy, which many of them are struggling to stay afloat during these COVID-19 times.  Meanwhile, our leadership in DC is mired down in crony capitalism which continues favoring large corporate interests & wealthy donors, giving those oligarchs preferential treatment as they have free reign to run roughshod over smaller competitives & exploit their workers: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/06/28/us-workers-need-more-power/.  Without a significant restructuring of the system itself, the spoils will keep going to the very top, while the rank & file increasingly see their version of the American Dream play out as their own personal nightmare.
 
Since the virus started ravaging us more than 3 months ago, in addition to the runaway fatalities we’ve also had nearly 50 million thrown out of work.  Allowing the economy to recover had to follow getting a handle on the virus, but this presidential administration tried to do it bass-ackwards.  They adopted a counterproductive strategy of only focusing on the economy in the midst of their reelection bid, practically acting as though the virus no longer exists.  The consequence as we’re seeing (& which we had kept warning about here at www.TheVORACS.com) is the infections & deaths keep climbing while the economy sputters along, saddled by renewed fear & uncertainty.  
 
 
Health Care
 
Another strong talking point for Biden is health care. He spoke this week rightly denouncing Trump trying to take away healthcare insurance for millions of Americans, while also intending to heartlessly remove coverage for preexisting conditions.  What kind of sinister motive is behind this initiative in the middle of a pandemic?  Especially as the GOP for years has failed coming up with a viable plan to replace ACA, even though Obamacare now does have broad public support, plus many thousands of Americans upon losing their health insurance during the pandemic are now relying on the ACA.  Throw in this presidential mismanagement of the virus fight boondoggle as millions get infected & hundreds of thousands lose their lives, how can Trump possibly answer to these blatantly irrational & heartless motives?  The Dems will definitely benefit on the optics of the healthcare issue for November, much like that issue helped propel a blue wave in 2018:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
More on the Economy
 
These NY Times articles offer insightful perspective on corporate greed, income inequality, the pitfalls of modern-day capitalism & how the working class is getting screwed.  And as I’ve been warning for years as we’re seeing time running out, we either find a way to fix capitalism for the modern age or risk losing it:
 
 
 
 
The economy is a mess & we don’t know what lies ahead.  What we do know is it’s sure to be a bumpy ride.  So we have an overload of links here describing what’s going on:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Ignoring a Pandemic Isn’t Leadership, It’s Closer to Negligent Homicide
 
We’re witnessing an ongoing/unmitigated disaster happening in real time.  How is it possible for a president to lead us through a pandemic health crisis, when he virtually fails to acknowledge such a crisis even exists?: https://www.yahoo.com/news/coronavirus-spike-alarms-republicans-not-012228358.html.  His old tricks of wishing or browbeating a problem away certainly didn’t work in this case: https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/06/trumps-denial-didnt-make-the-coronavirus-go-away/613573/.  Trump’s fatal mistake of downplaying & ignoring the virus began early on, while still today he’s shockingly downplaying & ignoring the crisis.  I can’t emphasize this point enough, we’re seeing a continuing abandonment of presidential leadership that is literally killing his own people!: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opinion/can-we-call-trump-a-killer/ar-BB15WthI.  It’s a level of blatant incompetence that as Americans we’ve probably never before experienced.  
 
During his cult rallies, Trump jokes about the virus to get a rise out of the crowd, but it is no laughing matter.  As the number of worldwide fatalities passes a half-million, we’ve lost 127,000 Americans as his dismissals & inactions were directly responsible for those deaths, yet somehow he finds the whole thing funny when he uses racist/bigoted names like the Kung Flu.  I can assure you the families of the deceased are not amused.  Asian-Americans aren’t too thrilled either: https://www.huffpost.com/entry/andrew-yang-donald-trump-coronavirus-racist-term_n_5ef4821fc5b643f5b22fceec & also see https://www.mediaite.com/tv/asian-american-obama-official-condemns-trumps-kung-flu-slur-kids-will-hear-it-from-every-schoolyard-bully/.
 
There are proven actions we can take that other countries have successfully done: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-06-28/only-5-of-americans-in-survey-say-things-are-going-very-well.  Start with testing/isolating/contact tracing on a mass scale.  Plus often washing hands & not touching your face when out in the public sphere.  And the much-too-early reopening (https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/markets/states-that-rushed-to-reopen-are-now-feeling-economic-pain/ar-BB15YJSM?ocid=msedgdhp) could have been mitigated with the requisite nearly 100% compliance to social distancing & mask wearing, but Trumpeters disproporately regard such logical precautions as more a political cudgel. 
 
There is also the very important matter that without the power, authority & resources of the federal government, the effort at state & local levels falls flat.  Not only does the prez deprive the states of essential direction & funding, he also sets a terrible personal example: https://www.theweek.com/articles/922223/trump-unmasked.  So what we have here is a catastrophe brought on by negligence: https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/504444-bolton-trump-ignored-early-warning-signs-of-coronavirus-pandemic, while he’s still ignoring the virus as part of a calculated campaign strategy although infections keep shooting upward: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-06-25/trump-ignores-virus-spike-as-u-s-cases-surge-toward-records.  
 
Trump has never prioritized public health, illustrated by how he can’t bring himself to level with the people on the true nature & threat from this virus, since being honest conflicts with idyllic optics that always take precedent with him.  But it is so irresponsibly bizarre & destructive that a president would insist on placing faulty political calculations over the best interests of the American people: https://www.businessinsider.com/trumps-decision-to-oppose-masks-bizarre-self-sabotaging-coronavirus-pandemic-2020-6.  If the prez did his job by taking the initiative in really fighting this virus so the spread subsides, it would also provide the one way to restart the economy & boost his reelection chances, but he’s been doing the exact opposite.  The end result is one of the worst failures of presidential leadership in our nation’s history, resulting in unimaginable suffering & tragedies as our president is complicit in the deaths of countless thousands of Americans:
 
 
 
 
 
 
“Something’s Not Working”
 
Those are the words of Dr. Fauci, stating the obvious as infections & deaths are rising unabated.  Indeed, we’re setting records on the number of daily infections, so an increase in deaths is likely to follow.  One encouraging aspect I do somewhat draw out of this next article is the number of people who were previously infected was probably drastically undercounted, with millions more Americans having unknowingly already contracted COVID, meaning we’re at a much higher likelihood of heading closer towards herd immunity: https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/26/health/us-coronavirus-friday/index.html.
 
Here’s a good reply we just received in the last couple days from the locals around here in Ohio…
Regarding COVID-19 and mask wearing, Andrew Sullivan in nymag.com said that we are entering the Jonestown phase of the trump cult, will tribalism be sustained even when it is costing tens of thousands of lives?  It’s nice to see that the senate r’s are uncomfortable with the uptick in cases and the TX senators are pushing back on trumps cuts to testing…in only took 120,000 lives and for it to hit their states. Crickets when it was ravaging NY, MA, CT.
 
Unfortunately, certain areas & their hospital ICU units are at risk of being overwhelmed.  So yes, we’re seeing record infection case counts for the U.S. as well as in individual states like FL, TX & AZ, yet our president continues to dismiss this virus emergency.  He can’t even bother showing up for a now rare task force press conference, instead sending out his lapdog Pence to deliver denialist word-salad spin, featuring no real plans, no sense of urgency & no cogent advice for the public.  And the governors in many red states followed Trump’s lead into disastrous consequences.  By Trump ignoring a pandemic with the death toll 127,000 & rising, as our headline stated that is not leadership, it’s closer to negligent homicide!  I heard one TV commentator mention the president seems to be running for reelection on the platform I haven’t killed you yet, so please vote for me!  These updates describe the states now getting slammed:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Lots More on the Pandemic
 
While the virus fire rages out of control, our prez is focusing his time on signing executive orders protecting monuments that are symbols of slavery & racial hate: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/26/opinion/confederate-monuments-racism.html & also see https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2020/6/28/1956578/–We-need-a-president-who-will-care-more-about-living-Americans-and-less-about-dead-Confederates?utm_campaign=trending.  Gee, is our illustrious leader really zeroed in on dealing with an emergency killing hundreds of thousands of Americans?  Obviously not!  How can someone lead our nation through a crisis when he’s effectively ignoring it?: https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/06/this-is-trumps-plague-now/613633/.  This is a monster blockbuster ongoing news story that’s not ending anytime soon & is affecting all of us.  Such a consequential calamity with an uncertain outcome has numerous aspects to it, so here we have tons of links offering recent updates:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Encouraging Poll Numbers
 
It’s in the swing states where the November election will be swung.  Yes, it’s still early with the election 4 months away, but look at these NYT polls released Thursday for key battleground states showing Trump getting trounced!  I hope this anti-Trump mood gets solidified for the duration.  Our fight against corrupt demagoguery is trending in a very positive direction as seen here:
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Trump is his own worst enemy: https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-trump-referendum-11593127700 & also see https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-week-it-went-south-for-trump-11593127733.  He has nothing to run on based on his own track record, so he’s defaulting to attacking Uncle Joe: https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/06/trump-may-have-a-solution-to-low-polling-be-meaner-to-biden.html.  I wish the insanity was just confined to Trump, but unfortunately it’s run amok throughout the GOP by the echo-brainwashing: https://thebulwark.com/newsletter-issue/about-that-peggy-noonan-column/.  For those who don’t trust a NYT poll like we saw in the links above, how about these results from a Fox battleground poll, with states that had been projected to be solidly-red may turn blue:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
All these polls are looking consistent insofar as Trump’s numbers are plunging: https://www.forbes.com/sites/andrewsolender/2020/06/25/nearly-20-swing-state-polls-were-released-todaybiden-leads-in-all-of-them/?utm_campaign=forbes&utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_term=Gordie%2F&fbclid=IwAR1yFzzXyfvh-p7Mhzsi82P-xFFJA89Shrbw5FYH736txre2S58lz8Ngd58#7c1294f17594.  The only demographic groups nationally where Trump maintains a significant advantage are white no college, white evangelicals & white nationalists.  Biden cleans up in the other categories, especially among women, minorities & college-educated.  And in my humble opinion, if polling were limited to only thinking Americans, Biden would win 50 states & Trump’s approval ratings would be 0%.
 
 
Insanity on Hannity
 
Trump has no clue what to do or where he wants to take the country.  Listen to this fumbling/bumbling answer to a softball question teed-up by insanity Hannity, providing a clear signal to all voters why he shouldn’t be given a second term.  It’s clear there is no vision, let alone any sort of coherent thought:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Let’s Work Together for a Blowout!
 
Hopefully, more Republicans can abandon their nihilistic foolishness & return to a compassionate conservatism pursuing the common good, which begins by not voting Trump: https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2020/06/26/republican-party-has-lost-its-way-republicans-should-vote-for-joe-biden-2020-column/3254053001/.  We need a convincing victory to take the steam out of Trump claiming voter fraud or calling his white supremacist dogs to violence, plus a landslide win for Uncle Joe might even help destroy the trumpism factor within the GOP: https://www.alternet.org/2020/06/trump-may-lose-in-november-and-trigger-a-new-national-crisis/
 
I don’t say this lightly, but a decisive Dem victory may be necessary to avert civil war.  On one side is the Black Lives Matter movement who’ve made major inroads toward advancing racial justice, backed by groups loosely associated with them sometimes under the umbrella of an antifa mentality, who are in no mood to take any crap from anyone.  On the other side is the white supremacist movement who’ve recently been inspired & energized by our president, many of whom are waiting anxiously for Trump’s dog whistle to take up arms & engage in war games, which a perception the election was stolen from them could spark the flames to deadly terrorist violence.
 
For a person who considers the very worst thing in life is to be a loser, even he now admits he’s losing: https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-admits-hes-losing-021332921.html & also see https://www.thedailybeast.com/trumps-real-reason-for-running-for-a-second-term-is-fear-of-being-remembered-as-a-one-term-loser?ref=home.  There’s a very good reason why Trump is dropping in the polls: https://www.vox.com/2020/6/26/21303547/donald-trump-2020-polls-coronavirus-biden-reelection-losing.  Here so far in 2020, the prez has been digging his own grave.  The polling within the margin of error is accurate, especially when the various polls are so uniform.  So if the election were held today, it would almost certainly be a bloodbath. 
 
But things can & do change, so we need to work together in fighting for Joe, taking nothing for granted.  And be on alert for the cheating we know is coming: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/jun/28/donald-trump-re-election-playbook-25-lies-cheats-and-steals.  Let’s encourage people to register & be energized to vote.  When the future of our nation is on the line, we all need to get involved & be very proactive as never before, whether contributing your time, your voice &/or your resources.  And you can use this blog as a tool in your arsenal.  Here are lots of links to review:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
We’re Not Gonna Take It!
 
We’ve had enough of the disastrous chaos presidency, so we’re about to put an end to this assault on truth, unity, decency & even democracy itself!  This high-energy song is for Trump, his corrupt loyalists, echo-media & crazed Trumpeters…
 
We’re not gonna take it
No, we ain’t gonna take it
We’re not gonna take it anymore

We’ve got the right to choose and there ain’t no way we’ll lose it
This is our life, this is our song
We’ll fight the powers that be just, don’t pick our destiny ’cause
You don’t know us, you don’t belong

We’re not gonna take it
No, we ain’t gonna take it
We’re not gonna take it anymore

Oh, you’re so condescending, your gall is never ending
We don’t want nothing, not a thing, from you
Your life is trite and jaded, boring and confiscated
If that’s your best, your best won’t do

 
 
 
 
Who Is This Guy???
 
We conclude with a few replies providing facts of things we know about Trump & as we go down these extensive lists, we need to ask ourselves is this really the person with the character & judgement to be our American president?  The truth is he’s not only an incompetent leader, he’s even a far cry from a decent human being…

THIS WAS ON A FRIEND’S PAGE: An anguished question from a Trump supporter: ‘Why do liberals think Trump supporters are stupid?’
THE SERIOUS ANSWER: Here’s what the majority of anti-Trump voters honestly feel about Trump supporters en masse:
That when you saw a man who had owned a fraudulent University, intent on scamming poor people, you thought “Fine.” (https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2018/04/10/trump-university-settlement-judge-finalized/502387002/)
That when you saw a man who had made it his business practice to stiff his creditors, you said, “Okay.” (https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-hotel-paid-millions-in-fines-for-unpaid-work)
That when you heard him proudly brag about his own history of sexual abuse, you said, “No problem.” (https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/list-trumps-accusers-allegations-sexual-misconduct/story?id=51956410)
That when he made up stories about seeing Muslim-Americans in the thousands cheering the destruction of the World Trade Center, you said, “Not an issue.” (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2015/11/22/donald-trumps-outrageous-claim-that-thousands-of-new-jersey-muslims-celebrated-the-911-attacks/)
That when you saw him brag that he could shoot a man on Fifth Avenue and you wouldn’t care, you exclaimed, “He sure knows me.” (https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2019/10/23/president-donald-trump-could-shoot-someone-without-prosecution/4073405002/)
That when you heard him relating a story of an elderly guest of his country club, an 80-year old man, who fell off a stage and hit his head, to Trump replied: “‘Oh my God, that’s disgusting,’ and I turned away. I couldn’t—you know, he was right in front of me, and I turned away. I didn’t want to touch him. He was bleeding all over the place. And I felt terrible, because it was a beautiful white marble floor, and now it had changed color. Became very red.” You said, “That’s cool!” (https://www.gq.com/story/donald-trump-howard-stern-story)
That when you saw him mock the disabled, you thought it was the funniest thing you ever saw. (https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/donald-trump-criticized-after-he-appears-mock-reporter-serge-kovaleski-n470016)
That when you heard him brag that he doesn’t read books, you said, “Well, who has time?” (https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2018/01/americas-first-post-text-president/549794/)
That when the Central Park Five were compensated as innocent men convicted of a crime they didn’t commit, and he angrily said that they should still be in prison, you said, “That makes sense.” (https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2019/06/19/what-trump-has-said-central-park-five/1501321001/)
That when you heard him tell his supporters to beat up protesters and that he would hire attorneys, you thought, “Yes!” (https://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-trump-campaign-protests-20160313-story.html)
That when you heard him tell one rally to confiscate a man’s coat before throwing him out into the freezing cold, you said, “What a great guy!” (https://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/donald-trump-orders-protesters-coat-is-confiscated-and-he-is-sent-into-the-cold-a6802756.html)
That you have watched the parade of neo-Nazis and white supremacists with whom he curries favor, while refusing to condemn outright Nazis, and you have said, “Thumbs up!” (https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2018/08/why-cant-trump-just-condemn-nazis/567320/)
That you hear him unable to talk to foreign dignitaries without insulting their countries and demanding that they praise his electoral win, you said, “That’s the way I want my President to be.” (https://www.huffpost.com/entry/trump-insult-foreign-countries-leaders_n_59dd2769e4b0b26332e76d57)
That you have watched him remove expertise from all layers of government in favor of people who make money off of eliminating protections in the industries they’re supposed to be regulating and you have said, “What a genius!” (https://www.politico.com/agenda/story/2017/12/29/138-trump-policy-changes-2017-000603)
That you have heard him continue to profit from his businesses, in part by leveraging his position as President, to the point of overcharging the Secret Service for space in the properties he owns, and you have said, “That’s smart!” (https://www.usnews.com/opinion/articles/2018-03-05/how-is-donald-trump-profiting-from-the-presidency-let-us-count-the-ways)
That you have heard him say that it was difficult to help Puerto Rico because it was in the middle of water and you have said, “That makes sense.” (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/politics/wp/2017/09/26/the-very-big-ocean-between-here-and-puerto-rico-is-not-a-perfect-excuse-for-a-lack-of-aid/)
That you have seen him start fights with every country from Canada to New Zealand while praising Russia and quote, “falling in love” with the dictator of North Korea, and you have said, “That’s statesmanship!” (https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/02/politics/donald-trump-dictators-kim-jong-un-vladimir-putin/index.html)
That Trump separated children from their families and put them in cages, managed to lose track of 1500 kids, has opened a tent city incarceration camp in the desert in Texas – he explains that they’re just “animals” – and you say, “Well, OK then.” (https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/more-5-400-children-split-border-according-new-count-n1071791)
That you have witnessed all the thousand and one other manifestations of corruption and low moral character and outright animalistic rudeness and contempt for you, the working American voter, and you still show up grinning and wearing your MAGA hats and threatening to beat up anybody who says otherwise. (https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/democracy/reports/2018/06/04/451570/confronting-cost-trumps-corruption-american-families/)
What you don’t get, Trump supporters, is that our succumbing to frustration and shaking our heads, thinking of you as stupid, may very well be wrong and unhelpful, but it’s also…hear me…charitable.
Because if you’re NOT stupid, we must turn to other explanations, and most of them are less flattering.
