Kavanaugh is Nothing But a Mob Lawyer and the Mob is Coming for You: An Open Letter to Soccer Moms

Kavanaugh is a Mob Lawyer...and the criminal, corrupt Republican Party is proudly trying to appoint him to the Supreme Court for life so that they and their wealthy donors can Get Out of Jail Free for all their many crimes.

Remember how bent out of shape the GOP was when W. tried to appoint his own Harriet Meyers to the SCOTUS so that he could be assured of at least one vote in his favor should the worst happen (to him, not the country)? Kavanaugh is Trump's Harriet Meyers. The litmus test was almost certainly "Can I count on you to protect me if I ever have a case before the court?" And Kavanaugh's answer was probably something like "I will always be faithful to you, Padrone. May I kiss your ring now?"

Kavanaugh is like Nixon appointing John Mitchell to the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh is like Al Pacino being appointed to the SCOTUS by Marlon Brando. Under Kavanaugh the Rule of Law will be replaced by the Rule of the Lawless.

Rank and file Republicans who find Latino immigrants scary should consider what it means for them when the highest court in the land is in the pocket of organized crime. It means that if Sheldon Adelson wants to build a casino in your wealthy, waterfront enclave, he will pay politicians to "eminent domain" your house---and the courts will let him. It means that if the Mob wants to shut down drug rehab programs and have users sent to for profit prisons instead where they can be recruited to become drug dealers, your teenager will face years in jail---and a very bleak future---when he is caught experimenting with drugs. It means that if you try to blow the whistle on your company for dumping carcinogens into the local water supply, you will find yourself out of work and unemployable. It means that if your husband's boss embezzles your husband's retirement fund, you had better get used to eating cat food. It means if the oil industry wants the US military to invade another country, your son--and maybe even your daughter--will be drafted and sent off to die. Assuming that your daughter has not already died from a botched back alley abortion---or been sent to jail for trying to terminate her own pregnancy with mail order methotrexate.

Soccer moms beware. Kavanaugh is not going to make your world safer. Kavanaugh is going to empower criminals. And the criminals are not going to target Latino immigrants---Latino immigrants do not have anything worth stealing. The organized criminals that Kavanaugh represents are going to target Americans with enough money to make them worthy targets but not enough money to buy protection--the upper middle class.

It Will Not Take 67 Senators to Take Down Kavanaugh. Here Is Why

Everyone seems to assume that Supreme Court Justices have the same immunity from criminal prosecution that the POTUS has. And that they keep that immunity for life. And therefore, the only way they can be punished for their crimes is if 67 members of the US Senate agree that they should be punished for their crimes.

However, a Supreme Court Justice is not exempt from criminal prosecution. And it is a crime to lie to Congress--a crime that can get one jail time. Kavanaugh has lied to Congress. That much is fairly certain. The moment that the DOJ is no longer controlled by the Russian Mob, the attorney general can prosecute him. For perjury. For conspiracy to hack and distribute stolen e-mails. Hell, for all we know Mueller has dirt on him and is waiting for him to land in a position of power before making his first move--the more a potential defendant has to lose the more willing he will be to rat out his co-conspirators.

The GOP is taking a huge chance trying to force someone as dirty as Kavanaugh down America's throat. They would be smarter to look for some squeaky clean conservative jurist with no political ties. And Kavanaugh is a fool if he thinks that once he gets on the Court his life will be easy. On the contrary, he will have a great big "Prosecute me" sign on his back.

Once the senate confirms him, the real fun will begin.

The Traitor in Chief Must Go

Donald Trump has made the office of the president of the United States a joke.

The close proximity of his pudgy little finger to the "red button" inspires fear.

He has crippled our national security.

He has destroyed our children's economic future with his crushing national debt.

He is obviously senile and possibly deranged. If he feels threatened, there is no telling what he might do. And a fair election will almost certainly put his illegal presidency in jeopardy, meaning that he will stop at nothing to stop the election. Many schools are polling places. Do we really want a man who refuses to condemn the NRA and school shooters to be in charge of enforcing the law this fall when the easiest way to shut down the polls will be to encourage homegrown right wing extremists to attack polling places that just happen to also be schools (a real two-fer for the right wing)? Do we?

This is not tin foil. This is not conspiracy theory. Some schools are already closing on election day. They see the writing on the wall, and they don't want to put children in harm's way. But what does it say about our country that the democratic process puts the lives of kids in danger? This is not right.

The Traitor in Chief must go.

Beto does not pander. Beto shows that Democrats are not afraid of ethnic diversity.

In particular, not afraid of Latino culture--the same culture that the Republicans have been trying to cast as "dirty", "disease ridden", "sex crazed"--and all the other adjectives that Nazis employed when they tried to gin up fear of Jewish people in Germany in order to facilitate their fascist coup.

A certain self-styled "progressive" political pundit recently accused Beto of attempting to "pander" to Hispanic voters through his use of his own nickname. Not going to give the self styled progressive's name or a link, because he does not deserve the attention. Just some criticism. Never mind that he is repeating a Ted Cruz talking point. He misses the real point, which is that for centuries, people from non-Anglo cultures have attempted to make themselves less threatening to their fellow Americans by adopting Anglo names, clothes, habits.

Well, some of us Americans are just not that enthused by Anglo culture. Some of us like cultural diversity. Some of us do not vote for people from other ethnic groups despite their differences but because of their differences---America is great because the melting pot has absorbed so many different cultures, so many different ways to do things, so many different potential solutions to the many problems that afflict humanity.

Diversity is the key to survival. Charles Darwin taught us that. Incest---basically, what the White-pride wing of the Republican Party is all about--means slow death of the species through failure to adapt. The same principle holds true on a socio-economic level.

When Beto runs for Senate using his actual nickname that he acquired while growing up in El Paso, Texas, he is not pandering. He is saying that Democrats are not afraid to be ourselves--and "ourselves" is not just the blood that flows in our veins, it is the neighborhoods where we grew up, it is our neighbors, our schools, our friends.

Beto does not pander. Beto empowers. Beto is the antidote to fear.

How to Protect the Urban Vote

Russia can win if it targets the urban vote.

1) Total vote tabulations in some precincts can be erased so that incumbents get to stay in office even though the polls showed them losing. A Russian hack can do this easily and with e-voting and no paper trail there will be no recount. Do this enough times and the GOP can maintain narrow control of the House.

2) In cases in which the seat is held by a Democrat but the state has a GOP governor and Secretary of State, they can declare that the seat is now "vacant" and the governor can install a selected Republican with plans to hold a special election "once the cause of the hack has been determined." I.e. never.

3) Trump can declare "martial law" in major urban areas that will influence the vote on election day in key districts. Not too many, but one or two, where it counts the most.

4) Right wing groups or Russian posing as right wing groups can make bomb threats at polling places in urban areas on election day. By attacking an urban polling place (anthrax mail, letter bomb) during early voting, Russia can make this type of threat even more effective so look for some kind of "terror threat" in later October. Again, in an urban area key to the Dem's chances of winning an election. This can easily be combined with 3. Trump can send in troops to "protect" the polls but in fact the troops will make it impossible for anyone to get to the polls.

5) Cyber attacks targeting utilities and mass transit in urban areas will also be part of Russia's plan. Keep people from the polls.

Note that any political strategist can easily figure out which urban areas are the most important to Democratic chances. I suggest getting prepared in advance. These places will have Democratic councils and mayors. Have local law enforcement create plans to protect the polls and enlist the FBI IN ADVANCE. That way, when the "home grown terra group" makes its move, the plan can be implemented and Trump can be told "We have this under control." As for number 5, make sure that urban areas publicize early voting and make it as easy as possible to early vote. And for number 1 and 2 create a back up paper trail for the urban vote. Cities have the money and the power. They can resist. They just need to be prepared.

"It's not right to send people to hell."

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2018/07/25/a-swedish-student-stopped-an-afghan-mans-deportation-by-refusing-to-sit-down-on-a-plane/?utm_term=.7a4143d18bb5

When Elin Ersson learned that an Afghan man was scheduled to be deported from Sweden on Monday, she bought a ticket for the same flight. Once she boarded the plane at Gothenburg airport, Ersson refused to take her seat, standing in the aisle, until the 52-year-old deportee was released.

Her dramatic act of civil disobedience, which she live-streamed on Facebook in English, forced the flight to be delayed by two hours, according to Swedavia, the company that operates the airport. Ultimately, her efforts succeeded — at least for the time being. The Afghan deportee was escorted off the plane before it took off.

snip

“I’m trying to change my country’s rules,” she responds. “It’s not right to send people to hell.”


“But you’re preventing all these customers from going to their destination,” the man says.


Which destination is that? Why don't people understand that the human race is one race? If we send one man (or family or child) to hell, we all go to hell.

Any Church That Would Have THIS WOMAN Teach a Sunday School Class....

...is a travesty of Christianity and Jesus weeps tears of blood every time that woman opens her mouth as she did in this Washington Post piece about why members of the religious right are willing to forgive Trump for his crotch grabbing and lies in exchange for his embrace of white supremacy .

“Slaves were valued,” she said. “They got housing. They got fed. They got medical care.”


https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/national/wp/2018/07/21/feature/god-trump-and-the-meaning-of-morality/?utm_term=.3440c0ffa562

What does "morality" mean to the Christian Coalition?
Answer: apparently it means owning slaves who will do all the hard work while you laze on the front porch sipping mint juleps and living the easy life.

I hope THIS WOMAN is enjoying her 15 minutes of fame. The things people will say to get their pictures in the newspaper! Not writing her name. It is better not to post the names of serial killers and other moral reprobates--it encourages others to follow their example.

A Murderous Russia Thug, His US Lackey, 8500 Nukes and Smallpox Virus--the Axis of Armageddon



What do you get when you cross President Putin (who is so "extremely powerful and strong" ) with President Trump (who is so very weak and cowardly)? You get essentially all the world's nuclear weapons and biologic weapons and chemical weapons in the hands of a single dictator and his henchman.

No wonder the evangelicals and the Neo-Nazis and the trailer park failures who hate their miserable, squalid lives love Trump. All of them are dreaming of the end of the world. They want to die--and they want to take everyone else with them, because when you hate yourself that much, you hate everyone else, too.

We are the Axis of Evil, people. It is our job to resist. For the sake of the entire planet. Just like the members of the White Rose in Nazi Germany. Except that our job is easier, because we still have a vote--if we get off our asses and use it.

Donald Trump Is a Snitch, a Coward and a Flunky

Trump Inc. is a carefully constructed illusion, a maverick businessman who breaks the rules, does things his own way, battles the establishment but always comes out on top. To believe his own pr he is at once Gary Cooper from High Noon, John Wayne from Rio Bravo, Al Pacino from Scarface and Orson Welles from Citizen Kane. He is 110% machismo. He is the original Breaking Bad. He is Wayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Comacho from Idiocracy He is the president who best represents all the Americans who feel that they have gotten a bum deal in the USA--including more than a few citizens of color, because citizens of color are especially likely to distrust the police and prosecutors and the FBI---

And if you believe all this, Trump has a bridge,a condo and a "virgin" from Eastern Europe he would like to sell you.

1. Trump Was a Snitch. For the FBI. Against the very Mob that he used to do things like hire illegal polish immigrant workers who were forced to labor without safety gear for less than minimum wage building his NY properties. When the kitchen got too hot, did he stand behind the mobsters who got him started? Hell no.

From the beginning, Trump tried to have it both ways. While he leveraged Roy Cohn’s mob contacts in New York, he was telling the FBI he wanted nothing to do with organized crime in Atlantic City, and even proposed putting an undercover FBI agent in his casinos. In April of 1981, when he was considering building a New Jersey casino, he expressed concern about his reputation in a meeting with the FBI, according to an FBI document in my possession and which the site Smoking Gun also posted. “Trump advised Agents that he had read in the press media and had heard from various acquaintances that Organized Crime elements were known to operate in Atlantic City,” the FBI recorded. “Trump also expressed at this meeting the reservation that his life and those around him would be subject to microscopic examination. Trump advised that he wanted to build a casino in Atlantic City but he did not wish to tarnish his family’s name.”


https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2016/05/donald-trump-2016-mob-organized-crime-213910

What do you call someone who makes money through his mob connections but also rats them out at the very same time to stay out of jail? Hint, it rhymes with bitch. What kind of idiot trusts a guy who is willing to play both sides like that to look after the safety and well being of a whole country full of strangers whom he has never met and will never know? I will give you a hint. It rhymes with fucker.

2. Trump Went to Military School but when it came time to join up, this athlete (who once broke a friend's baseball bat beside he struck out, meaning he was not used to striking out) suddenly developed a case of cold feet. Excuse me, flat feet. How many members of Trump's base lost relatives in Vietnam? How many had relatives come back with PTSD or with other wounds that changed their lives forever? Trump is a coward. A coward afraid of physical pain. When he had plastic surgery to remove a portion of his scalp with a bald spot, he found the procedure painful. So, he pulled out a hunk of his wife, Ivanka's hair, because she was the one who recommend the plastic surgeon to him. What kind of brave hero does that? The man is a coward. He will never take a bullet for anyone. Or even for himself look how fast this man with "flat feet" jumps when someone approaches the stage. And how his tiny fingers dig into the arms of the secret service agents. Cool under fire he is not.



3. Trump sucks up to a foreign dictator. Do not be fooled. Vladimir Putin is no outlaw, no hero fighting for justice for an oppressed people. This man is The Man. He has his own police force, his own prisons. If you are a member of the political opposition, he can have you thrown into prison or killed. He invades foreign countries. He covets even more foreign countries---right now he is conducting war games on the borders of the Baltic States at the same time that Trump is threatening to dissolve NATO and refusing to answer the question of whether to US will come to the aid of the people of Lavtia, Estonia and Lithunia if Russia invades. Trump is Putin's poodle. His bitch. Trump is a flunky.
