Is Fox News Manipulating the Public on Behalf of Russia?

Is Fox News is inciting violence? Are they behind Russia’s propaganda machine? We know Russia’s agenda is to create chaos, dividing our country by inciting domestic violence. 

Posters and flyers are popping up across New York, Los Angeles, and other major cities across the country announcing demonstrations planned for 11/04/2017 by a group called “Refuse Fascism.”


I am all for refusing fascism, but I find it curiously suspicious that these demonstrations are planned on 11/04 — Russian Unity Day. Odder still that Fox News is amplifying the events with sensationalized coverage. 

Violent counter protest groups are organizing as well. 

It has long been suspected that the “Antifa” movement was created by Russian fake news, and embraced as a scapegoat by far right white nationalists. 

These types of demonstrations/riots are not what free speech is meant to be. Who is really behind it?
If I am wrong, my apologies to refusefascism.org, but please explain the decision to demonstrate on “Russian Unity Day.”

Random Thoughts of Trump, Terrorism and Impeachment

I never watch television, “annoyed” isn’t a strong enough word to describe the feelings it triggers in me. It’s like listening to the constant reverberation of a dentist’s drill. I just realized my dentist’s office plays a television in every room…oh God, I have an appointment on Friday…😱!

In such cases as this, if I am forced to sit in a room with a television I am drawn in against my free will, like a mosquito is drawn toward a zapper, and when I leave the room I am stupider than I was when I entered.

On Monday, in my childish Christmas morning like anticipation of the Mueller arrest announcement, I turned on my television (left behind in the divorce). I wasn’t sure how it worked. I tried  to find MSNBC, but I could only find Trump Fox TV, or CBS. I chose the latter. Two news anchors, I don’t know or care to know their names, were on camera discussing the possibilities. One of the anchors repeatedly said “collusion is not a crime.” 

I unplugged the television (couldn’t figure out how to turn it off), and let my brain sizzle for a while. Then I started my search. Collusion is a word synonymous with the word conspiracy. Conspiracy against the United States is a crime. In fact it is one of the charges that was shortly thereafter announced against Paul Manafort, financially related so far. 

My lesson for today is simple:

  • annoying is to television 
  • as
  • collusion is to conspiracy 

They are the same, and all four should be illegal. The spreading of fear by means of broadcasting ignorance and misinformation, whether intentional or unintentional is how we got in this fine mess…and this is a fine mess.
We have a corrupt GOP as the majority of congress. Many of them have financial ties to Russia and are so afraid of their own incrimination in the Mueller investigation that they are sitting on their hands hoping no one will notice them.

They should be filing articles of impeachment. That is their job. Bill Clinton was impeached for something as ridiculous as lying about a consensual sex act! This is treason, election tampering, money laundering…

Filing articles of impeachment would strip Trump of his pardoning power instantly. If he starts pardoning his co-COLLUSIONERs, aka his coconspirators, then there is no rule of law. The bad guys win again, turn over your health insurance, your 401K, and your bank loans on your way out. 

Who wants to live in a country where corruption is the order of the day? I don’t. I want to live in a democracy. I want the majority of the people to rule, the majority who work honest jobs and pay their share of taxes, and don’t funnel money into Argentina and the Cayman Islands. I want the American people to take America back from Russia, and the wealthiest 1%. I want the Nazi’s to crawl back into their hiding places or to seek asylum in Russia. Is this too much to ask?

Incidentally, I have a child who goes to school in lower Manhattan. I was more than a little anxious when she didn’t pick up the phone or respond to my text messages (for ten whole minutes). 8 people were killed and at least 11 injured in what has rightly been labeled a terrorist act. This is a f*d up world. That said, what happened exactly one month ago on October 1, 2017, in Las Vegas, left 58 dead, and 500 wounded. It was not labeled a terrorist act because to be labeled terrorism the violent act must encompass a political agenda. This is Trump’s most convenient excuse for racism. Vegas was comparatively swept under the rug by Donald tRump for two reasons.

  1. The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a white man. Trump’s supporters fall into the demographic of white man, and Donald Trump is a white supremacist whose racist agenda was not served by the Vegas attack.
  2. The Vegas attack weapon of choice was firearms. The NRA is more corrupt and powerful than any underworld organization , and they own the GOP.

The U.S. Constitution’s Art 2 Sec 2: “he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.” 

Impeach the f*ker already!

Some more optimistic thoughts. I’ve read several arguments by attourneys and come to the understanding that– when Mueller names Trump as a conspirator in this, Trump loses his power to impeach anyone related to the investigation. 

Additionally, Mueller has planned for Trump’s predictable and inevitable melt down. When he (possibly) fires Mueller, it will not affect the proceedings.  Mueller has planned ahead, this is his job, and he’s good at it. As I’ve said before, Mueller is playing chess, Trump is trying really hard to color in the lines.

Who will be next and when will it happen?

Sexual Assault – A Life Sentence

Dear America,

I have question for you—
Harvey Weinstein has been outed as a sexual predator. Life as he knows it has come to a screeching halt, as it should. 

Sexual assault is a life changing event for the victims, it’s a life sentence. Post traumatic stress is real— there is life before, and life after. The person in the life before is not the same person who occupies the shell after. That person no longer exists. This new person has trust issues— in human goodness, in their own abilities: to discern people’s motives, to protect themselves, in their own value as human beings. The world looks different, and it’s a scary place.

The parallels are startling. An older man in a position of power, an audiotape, dozens of victims, some recent and some from decades ago, come forward with stories of assault. One assailant is mentioned above, and the other you elect president. 

And here is that question—WHY?

Bill Cosby, another powerful man who had gotten away with this for decades, is finally paying for his crimes. Life as he knew it will never be again, and that’s good. 

Three powerful men, two are destroyed, one elected to the highest office of the land. 

And again I ask—WHY? 

Does it have anything to do with the fact that one is white, one is black, and one is a Jew?

I’ve written about this subject several times. Sexual assault has touched my life more than once—and the lives of my loved ones. The rage I have for men who commit these crimes is unhealthy. This rage has bled into my relationships with enablers. Those who voted for a man who is on tape bragging about his crimes… I can’t excuse it, because it’s inexcusable. 

Go through your phone contacts and start shooting off texts to the women you know. Ask them about their experiences. I’m sure you’ll get an affirmative response before you get to the letter B (I’m assuming you have 4 female friends whose names start with A). If they feel like talking about it, most will not, ask them how it has changed their lives. 

I try to find humor in everything- but this subject is the one I can not, and although I’ve tried to forgive any woman who voted for an admitted sexual predator… knowing what he is, I can not.

Trump is Determined to Destroy American Healthcare 

People continue to argue that the President of the United States is one man, and one man can not single handedly destroy a nation. I would counter that Trump is one fat man and a half, and he’s doing a bang up job of it. 
Don’t get me wrong, I do not mean to insult the President of the United States Virgin Islands.

“I met with the President of the Virgin Islands. The Virgin Islands and the President of the Virgin Islands, these are people that are incredible people, they suffered gravely and we’re be there, we’re going to be there, we have really, it is not even a question of a choice.” ~Donald J Trump, F***ing Idiot of the United States

Donald Trump, in his bigly geniosity (if he can make up words so can I), claims to have conversed with the “the President of the United States Virgin Islands.” USVI is a US territory, (hence the US part of the abbreviation), they have no president worthy of mention—Trump. 

I think he might have had more success speaking to the King Regent of the USVI…or perhaps Virginia, the Virgin God of USVI, who wears a gold cape and rules from the cumulus cloud in the sky above Saint Thomas. 

Back to the source of my anger this morning—

By signing the presidential order to end subsidies for the Affordable Care Act, Trump has essentially opened the floodgates that had contained what individuals can be charged for healthcare. Dump’s determination to destroy ACA, fueled by a racist goal to erase President Obama’s entire legacy, without concern for cost, will result in much higher insurance premiums for the middle class. 

The subsidies he has cut paid the difference for low income Americans who are unable meet insurance costs. Now those costs will be disbursed among those who do pay for insurance, either through ACA or through company provided insurance plans. The result will render millions more Americans unable to afford the new premiums. They will end up foregoing medication and treatment all together. 

Insurance premiums have already increased substantially for 2018 in anticipation of Trump’s shenanigans. I’m angry, and you should be too, because as always it will be the middle class who have been shat on. 

Trump may claim this move will save tax payers billions. If he cared about tax dollars he’d put an end to his family and cabinet’s excessive private jet travel habits and his weekly golf excursions…to check on his properties. Trump’s administration is burning through more tax payer dollars than it would take to continue funding ACA. 

Bloomberg reports estimate rather than saving tax payer dollars, this executive order will cost tax payers $200 Billion over the next decade. 

Donald Trump’s campaign trail rhetoric that “Obama care is failing” was not true at the time, but he is single handedly make sure it fails now. 

This will be Trump’s legacy, destroying the American healthcare system without any intention to rebuild it. Unless Congress acts on the 25th Amendment (remove him based on his insanity), or moves forward with impeachment proceedings soon, Trump will be the end of the GOP (good riddance), and the mass murderer of millions of Americans who are denied healthcare.

The World According to Trump

Denial is a river that flows 

Through Nambia— which everyone knows

Is Africa, not the Middle East, 

Nor is Israel, I heard that at least,

Nambia is not in the U.S.

Puerto Rico though, who would have guessed,

Is, and yet they don’t get US aid

Not due to debt, as I yesterday said,

In truth the local population 

Is the problem and the causation 

Puerto Ricans, I would like to express 

Possess what I think is an excess 

Of what is called skin pigmentation 

If I could contact immigration

You might wonder how I got so smart

What’s in my chest in place of a heart

Like other racists I wasn’t born

To treat people with contempt and scorn

I learned my geography from the Klan

Well, my dad… just one supreme white man
