UK's 'Youth-Quake' - Surge in New Voters

While most opinion polls give Johnson’s Conservatives a substantial lead overall, the surge in new young voters is good news for Labour, which is seeking to defy the odds and win a general election for the first time since 2005.

Young voters are more likely than their older compatriots to oppose Brexit, which will end Britons’ right to work and live in 27 other European nations and will have a major — though as yet unknown — economic impact.

QUESTIONS

If ever the USA needed a Youth-Quake of new voters, 2020 is the year!

Any creative ideas 💡 on getting millions of 18-25 year olds to the polls?

Do you feel safe in your community to stand on a corner with a big poster asking for a vote for Democrats, Save the Planet

Are you afraid of retribution aimed at your family?

Are there reasons you would not stand quietly with a Vote for Democrats, Save the Planet sign?

''Tis a Sad Day for Grandma" - A Righteous Poetic Rant

TIS A SAD DAY FOR GRANDMAS

This Grandma is really upset and extremely sad.

Actually, I'm raging from every fiber within.
Fueled by the righteous indignation
caused by the slow, polluted destruction
of my family, the objects of my affection.

Clouds filled with monoxide and dust of coal.

Rivers of gerardia spreading poisons to the soil.

Oceans teaming with nuclear waste, chemicals, sewers, and black, oozing oil.

Perhaps red tide is the result of these spoils.

Polluted waters unceasingly shift from shoal to shoal while Power and Greed drive the dead-hearted Royal Rulers debt-reliant, defiant goals.

And now, the direct and dire deathly blow
sprouts from beneath the Royal Rulers' plows.

Poisoned feed is all they grow now.

And, if that is not enough evidence to prove profit mongers depravity,
they are destroying what quality
remains in our food under an altruistic guise to save us from the viruses
and molds their heartless,
profit-seeking stupidity devised!

What little nutrition that may survive
in the seeds we need, the despots destroy with cancer-causing coatings of poly.

And, just before the poly-polluted food
is placed on our plates, the remaining nutrition is altered or destroyed
when they microwave and/or irradiate.

We can suspect that future generations
may not have ten little fingers and ten little toes at their birth.

Sadly, they may spend but a little time
living on this poisoned, polluted earth.

Oh, how this Grandma's heart greaves
with the loving pain of despair.

Knowing that someday she must leave
her little ones in such a state of fateful care.

Grandma wants the Lord to quickly make the world a better place.

The world-wide task has become too big.
The Royal Rulers' destroying ball is reeling and rolling too fast.

Maybe we would all be better off with just one, really big nuclear blast!

Ignorance shadows the minds of the moms.
They really don't understand.
Or they are just overwhelmed.
They say "Whatever".

They choose to feed their wee ones
with chicken fingers and fries. Vegetables are becoming a food of the past.

How long do they think the little bodies can last without what they need?

Oh yeah, it's all dead anyway thanks to irradiation and the new poly-seeds.

And, can you really blame the young moms?

Their doctors don't care and tell them lies.
Never suggesting that a better kiddie diet may possibly be a cure for the ear aches, asthma, eczema, and RSV.

Drugs are the cure-all of all maladies for this century.

Gallons of liquid pink stuff are dispensed
to remove the symptoms of the polluted offense.

Doctors are legally destroying babies immunity.

Can't we expect a better response from our esteemed medical community?

Are they, too, serving only Profit and Gain?
Will they face God with impunity?

So who is there to play the side of good
in this last battle of Armageddon?

For the war is on and most of us are uninformed pawns with too little time or energy to offset the Royal Rulers game.

History belies the Truth.

They have tried from the beginning of time
to possess this world as their own.
Undaunted by millenniums of failure
they have stayed on their conquering track.

The International polluters,
the ageless Royal Rulers,
are the ones that will win.

They have colluded for centuries to stack the deck, now using acronyms like EOC and OPEC.

How ultimately sad.

In their concealed, conquering zeal
even their own tiny offspring have lost their appeal.

But the dead-hearted seekers of Power
will lose their smug grins.

For their children will also rot and die
as the result of their unprecedented
internationally destructive sins.

In retrospect, this was prophetic writing back then.

Who Might Crash AG Barr's Dec 8th Holiday 🎉 Party 🎉

Gordon Sondland? Rudy? Bolton?

Brings chuckles to ponder a list of potential 🎉🎉 party 🎉 🎉crashers.

Wonder if huge protests are planned?
Here’s the address just in case:

Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/cheers-barr-books-trumps-hotel-for-dollar30000-holiday-party/ar-AAGpwfD

Some experts thinks this sends the wrong message, as do a classroom of 5th graders

“It creates the appearance that high-level political appointees or allies of the president may feel like they need to spend money at the president’s businesses as a show of loyalty, and that is something that makes me deeply uncomfortable and should make taxpayers deeply uncomfortable,” said Liz Hempowicz, director of public policy at the nonprofit Project on Government Oversight.“

Don’t respond to tweets or social media.

It’s simple.

And GOTV until you drop in your tracks from exhaustion starting tomorrow ☺️

Trump's Key word is "They" Not "Thanksgiving"

📣 Trump is the Hate Cheerleader 📣

When Trump uses the generic term “they” followed by a false accusation, he is appealing to his base:

bigots,
racists,
religious & federalists zealots,
the greedy,
the ignorant,
and armed sociopaths/psychopaths.

Each of his base fill in the “they” with their personal hated group/issue.

The GOP fans the hatred for "The Other" by spewing lies beginning with the word “They”

Hate & fear encapsulate Trumpists hearts & minds. The rallies are as much, maybe more, about an opportunity to shout & scream their hate out loud as seeing Herr Hate Cheerleader 📣

📣 Trump is the Hate Cheerleader 📣

Apparently 40% of US population are Trumpists if vote counts are to be believed 🤯

However and hopefully the Hateful Frightening Trump Administration Policies will scare enough apathetic non-voters to register & vote for Democrats.

To save America from Totalitarian Theocracy

GOTV now & everyday. Talk to people.

3. DEFINITIONS. See Glossary.

4. POLICY. It is DoD policy that:

b. Unless expressly stated otherwise, the provisions of this Directive should not be construed to rescind any existing authorities of the Heads of DoD Components, commanders, and/or responsible DoD civilians to provide DSCA in accordance with existing laws, DoD issuances, and Secretary of Defense-approved orders.

c. DSCA is initiated by a request for DoD assistance from civil authorities or qualifying entities or is authorized by the President or Secretary of Defense.

d. All requests for DSCA shall be written, and shall include a commitment to reimburse the Department of Defense in accordance with sections 5121, et. seq., of Reference (f) (also known as “The Stafford Act”), section 1535 of title 31, U.S.C. (also known as “The Economy Act” (Reference (y))), or other authorities except requests for support for immediate response, and mutual or automatic aid, in accordance with paragraphs 4.g. and 4.m. of this section. Unless approval authority is otherwise delegated by the Secretary of Defense, all DSCA requests shall

DoDD 3025.18, December 29, 2010
3

be submitted to the office of the Executive Secretary of the Department of Defense. For assistance provided according to paragraph 4.g. of this section, civil authorities shall be informed that oral requests for assistance in an emergency must be followed by a written request that includes an offer to reimburse the Department of Defense at the earliest available opportunity. States also must reimburse the United States Treasury in accordance with section 9701 of Reference (y). Support may be provided on a non-reimbursable basis only if required by law or if both authorized by law and approved by the appropriate DoD official.

e. All requests from civil authorities and qualifying entities for assistance shall be evaluated for:

(1) Legality (compliance with laws).
(2) Lethality (potential use of lethal force by or against DoD Forces).
(3) Risk (safety of DoD Forces).
(4) Cost (including the source of funding and the effect on the DoD budget).
(5) Appropriateness (whether providing the requested support is in the interest of the Department).
(6) Readiness (impact on the Department of Defense’s ability to perform its primary mission).
f. DSCA plans shall be compatible with Reference (i); the National Incident Management System (Reference (z)); all contingency plans for operations in the locations listed in paragraph 1.d. above the signature of this Directive; and any other national plans (approved by the President or Secretary of Defense) or DoD issuances governing DSCA operations. DSCA planning will consider command and control options that will emphasize unity of effort, and authorize direct liaison if authorized by the Secretary of Defense.

g. Federal military commanders, Heads of DoD Components, and/or responsible DoD civilian officials (hereafter referred to collectively as “DoD officials”) have IMMEDIATE RESPONSE AUTHORITY as described in this Directive. In response to a request for assistance from a civil authority, under imminently serious conditions and if time does not permit approval from higher authority, DoD officials may provide an immediate response by temporarily employing the resources under their control, subject to any supplemental direction provided by higher headquarters, to save lives, prevent human suffering, or mitigate great property damage within the United States. Immediate response authority does not permit actions that would subject civilians to the use of military power that is regulatory, prescriptive, proscriptive, or compulsory.

(1) The DoD official directing a response under immediate response authority shall immediately notify the National Joint Operations and Intelligence Center (NJOIC), through the
4
DoDD 3025.18, December 29, 2010

chain of command, of the details of the response. The NJOIC will inform appropriate DoD Components, including the geographic Combatant Command.
(2) An immediate response shall end when the necessity giving rise to the response is no longer present (e.g., when there are sufficient resources available from State, local, and other Federal agencies to respond adequately and that agency or department has initiated response activities) or when the initiating DoD official or a higher authority directs an end to the response. The DoD official directing a response under immediate response authority shall reassess whether there remains a necessity for the Department of Defense to respond under this authority as soon as practicable but, if immediate response activities have not yet ended, not later than 72 hours after the request for assistance was received.
(3) Support provided under immediate response authority should be provided on a cost- reimbursable basis, where appropriate or legally required, but will not be delayed or denied based on the inability or unwillingness of the requester to make a commitment to reimburse the Department of Defense.
h. The authority of State officials is recognized to direct a State immediate response using National Guard personnel under State command and control (including personnel in a title 32, U.S.C. (Reference (e)) (hereafter referred to as “Title 32”) status) in accordance with State law, but National Guard personnel will not be placed in or extended in Title 32 status to conduct State immediate response activities.

i. Federal military commanders are provided EMERGENCY AUTHORITY under this Directive.

Federal military forces shall not be used to quell civil disturbances unless specifically authorized by the President in accordance with applicable law (e.g., chapter 15 of Reference (d)) or permitted under emergency authority, as described below (see DoDD 3025.12 (Reference (j)) and DoDD 5525.5 (Reference (c))). In these circumstances, those Federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the President is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances because:

(1) Such activities are necessary to prevent significant loss of life or wanton destruction of property and are necessary to restore governmental function and public order; or,

(2) When duly constituted Federal, State, or local authorities are unable or decline to provide adequate protection for Federal property or Federal governmental functions. Federal action, including the use of Federal military forces, is authorized when necessary to protect the Federal property or functions.

j. Except for immediate response and emergency authority as described in paragraphs 4.g. and 4.i. of this section, only the Secretary of Defense may approve requests from civil authorities or qualifying entities for Federal military support for:
5
DoDD 3025.18, December 29, 2010

(1) Defense assistance in responding to civil disturbances (requires Presidential authorization) in accordance with Reference (j).
(2) Defense response to CBRNE events (see DoDI 2000.18 (Reference (aa))).
(3) Defense assistance to civilian law enforcement organizations, except as authorized in Reference (c).
(4) Assistance in responding with assets with potential for lethality. This support includes loans of arms; vessels or aircraft; or ammunition. It also includes assistance under section 382 of Reference (d) and section 831 of title 18, U.S.C. (Reference (ab)); all support to counterterrorism operations; and all support to civilian law enforcement authorities in situations where a confrontation between civilian law enforcement and civilian individuals or groups is reasonably anticipated.
k. Federal military forces employed for DSCA activities shall remain under Federal military command and control at all times.
l. Special event support to a qualifying entity shall be treated as DSCA.
m. All requests for DSCA mutual and automatic aid via the DoD Fire and Emergency Services programs shall be in accordance with Reference (g).
n. DSCA is a total force mission (see DoDD 1200.17 (Reference (ac))).
o. No DoD unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) will be used for DSCA operations, including support to Federal, State, local, and tribal government organizations, unless expressly approved by the Secretary of Defense. Use of armed UAS for DSCA operations is not authorized. (See References (p), (q), (r), and (s))
p. Direct liaison between DoD Components and the States should occur only when time does not permit compliance with paragraph 13.a. in Enclosure 2 of this Directive. In each such instance, the Chief, National Guard Bureau, will be informed of the direct liaison.
5. RESPONSIBILITIES. See Enclosure 2.
6. RELEASABILITY. UNLIMITED. This Directive is approved for public release and is available on the Internet from the DoD Issuances Web-site at http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives.
