July 4, 2018 will live in infamy

Free Parking July 11 2018

“We will take America without firing a shot…we do not have to invade the United States, we will destroy you from within.” Nikita Krushchev, Nov. 18, 1956

2018 celebrated one heck of a 4th of July. To celebrate 242 years in existence, nine Republicons traveled, hat in hand, to Russia. Was it to receive their assignments and money wrapped in newspapers? Is there anything left to call the Republicon party but traitors? Their timing can only be construed as spitting in the eye of democracy. The true horror is that while U.S. public media is trying to normalize their abhorrent, aberrant behavior, news media in Russia are mocking those members of Congress as weak.

We seem to have slipped down a rabbit hole and ended in an alternate universe where 45 percent of the voting age public disapproves of investigating who tampered in our election both at home and abroad and Republiconned voters approve of Russians more than Democrats.

What happened to our veterans who fought and then lived to tell the tale of their friends’ and strangers’ deaths in war? At one time, they would have risen to stop acts of treason. Now they seem happy to sip on the tears of those who care, using derogatory terms to emphasize their scorn.

Again I am reminded of the Rwandan genocide in 1994. The Hutu, the uneducated majority, hated the Tutsi because they perceived them to be “elite” by virtue of education. Hate speech radio was officially sanctioned and the Hutu were armed with machetes provided by greedy weapons makers. The constantly broadcasted hate speech bubbled over motivating brainwashed mobs to kill their next-door neighbors. In only one hundred days 800,000 people were slaughtered, including 75 percent of the Tutsi, and more than one million Hutu were accused of rape and murder during the genocide.

Our country is being ripened for civil war, genocide then oligarch rule. We’re watching the kidnappings of refugee children, NRA condoned school shootings, discriminatory murders and incarceration of black people, and stripping women of the rights to their own bodies and lives.

Melania says she doesn’t care. Do You? Register others! Vote!

1. A mere "kick" for this post seems like a weak sauce,

but the OP states its case very eloquently.

4. Starting to think repubs aren't saying anything becausee

they are interested in joining in the worldwide trend of white nationalists / right wing authoritarian rule. They're OK with it as long as they can get their theocratic fantasies in the mix as well. We are witnessing a slow motion coup and our constitution doesn't have anything in place to peacefully stop it. I hope I'm wrong but if I'm not, why hasn't anyone stopped him yet?

7. We're all just waiting.

Sept 8 should be an interesting day. But I'm really looking forward to the start of the manafort trial July 25. But if it comes down to it, I'll meet you on the Mall with my tent and sleeping bag and will stay for the duration--until they are frog marched out of our WH.

13. As it should! Good Question.. "What happened

to our Vets"?! How could they support the Fraud who hands over our country to Russia?! After all they've fought for to preserve our Democracy from Nazis and Fascists?

It's the Twilight Zone and the rabbit hole.



I'm so bloody sick of the Twilight Zone.

18. Perhaps it's because the republicons give lip service to "honoring"

our vets and then proceed to steal the money meant for their welfare and then are treated like second class citizens? I don't know.

Somehow I always thought they would have the back of Lady Liberty even after they left the service, but ?

15. Eve of July 4: Senate Intelligence Committee confirms putin/russia Acts of War

The Senate report was timed to be all but invisible. And in fact most media have paid little attention. CBS Evening News, for example, is more interested in bringing America some heart-warming feature stories, and has had NO time to tell them that Putin ordered ACTS OF WAR against the USA to help republican Dirty Donny steal the election, and that those russian ACTS OF WAR are ongoing.

Dirty Donny, the republican Draft-Dodger-in-Chief, is now off to have a super-duper occulted secret meeting with the man who is WAGING WAR ON AMERICA.

This is so freaking evil and wrong. And the republican party is ok with it. Sick beyond tears.

16. Washington Post: The Senate Intelligence Committee reaffirms that Russia meddled

"...The intelligence community’s assessment declared: “We assess with high confidence that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election, the consistent goals of which were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary [Hillary] Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump.”

"The new Senate report calls this a “sound intelligence product.”
