Conspiracy Theorists

The Republican Party Heritage And Principles Are In Death Spiral after 167 Years

The Republican Party was founded in March 1854 as a reform party, with the major principle at its founding being opposition to the expansion of slavery, and including abolitionists within its midst.

It was a Northern party which fought the Civil War and ended slavery, and for a generation, it was a party that inspired the majority of Americans.

Then, in the Gilded Age, it became corrupted by the power and influence of industrial capitalism, and conservatism reigned.

But then, Theodore Roosevelt and others who carried the name “progressive” with pride, promoted reform of the capitalistic system, but after TR’s death, while progressivism still existed in the party, it was taken over by conservatives, and the Great Depression undermined the national power of the party, as the Democrats became the majority party in the 1930s.

The battle for the future of the party was waged in the next half century liberal to moderate Republicans on one side, and hardline conservatives as their opponents, and Ronald Reagan ushered in a hard right conservatism, which became more extreme due to Newt Gingrich and other extreme conservatives since the mid 1990s.

And now we have come to a party that is in a death spiral, as we have conspiracy theorists who are taking over the party, and promoting hate, in the form of racism, nativism, Islamophobia, Antisemitism, and having wacky members who are advocating assassination of opposition Democrats.

So the Republican Party is now the party of Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, Louie Gohmert, Matt Gaetz, Jim Jordan, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley,and many other right wing Fascists, but at the leadership is Donald Trump, and the party represents now:

Family Values gone, with the caging of immigrant children.

Deficit Hawks gone, with added massive deficits of tax cuts to the wealthy.

Free Trade gone, with massive taxes on foreign goods and bailouts of farmers as a result, adding to the national debt and consumer prices.

Limited Federal Government gone, with claims that what state governments report as election results should be ignored by the Congress.

Limiting the Imperial Presidency gone, with obedience by right wing members of both houses of Congress to the whims and desires of Donald Trump, even continuing as this author and blogger writes.

Three Republican Freshmen In Congress Who Should Be Expelled As Threats To Civil Order

The kooks have come out in the Republican Party, and there are at least three freshmen who should be expelled as threats to civil order and common decency.

These three members of the House have displayed that they are dangerous, extreme in their craziness, and unwilling to obey Congressional rules.

The first is Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, who is a full blown QAnon supporter, and plans to promote an impeachment resolution against the newly inaugurated President Joe Biden on his first full day as President on January 21, 2021.

A second is Lauren Boebert of Colorado, also a QAnon supporter, who carries firearms on her person against safety rules, and created a scene when asked to go through metal detectors as a result of the January 6, 2021 Capitol Hill Insurrection. She is a gun rights advocate who has also resisted cooperation in dealing with the COVID 19 Pandemic.

And the third is the youngest member of the House in many years, 25 year old Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, who also packs weapons and resists metal detectors, using the excuse that he is in a wheel chair, and is not accountable to be searched as a result.

All three opposed the Electoral College ceremony for Joe Biden, and all three promote defiance and lack of cooperation, and come across as overly confrontational.

The Republican Party has become, more than ever, a party of dangerous and defiant membership, and all three show signs to any intelligent person as being mentally unstable and believers in conspiracy theories.

All three are under investigation for their possible involvement in the Insurrection, including possibly encouraging the events of that horrible day!

The Growing Danger Of Trump “Confederates” And Right Wing Christian And Jewish Extremists

America, as the Electoral College formally elects Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, as the President and Vice President of the United States, being inaugurated on January 20, 2021, is facing a growing danger that includes the potential of violence and bloodshed.

Donald Trump’s refusal to concede, and to stop spreading the myth of a fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020, in inciting crazy and deluded people to call for violence and bloodshed, and to refuse to ever accept the results of the election.

Trump is inciting the danger of civil war, and will have to face prosecution in 37 days when he is a private citizen, and continues, as seems clear, to promote violence and bloodshed.

We have two thirds or more of Republicans in polls saying they will never accept that Trump has lost, and we have lunatics such as conspiracy theorist Alex Jones; Republican state chairman in Texas Allan West (former one term South Florida Congressman); and right wing Christian preachers, such as Franklin Graham; and even Orthodox Rabbis, including one this author is aware of through his delusional wife, who allows him to manipulate her, to spread the lies and undermine American democracy!

We have crazies calling for a new Confederacy of Republican States who oppose Joe Biden being inaugurated, and threats against the lives of both Biden and Harris!

There is nothing worse than people who claim to be devout Christians or Jews who preach anti democratic propaganda, all in the name of enriching themselves on the backs of gullible congregants who keep on donating to these preachers of hate and lies!

And Donald Trump has managed to manipulate and fool many of his supporters, to donate over $200 million to be used by Trump in whatever way he wishes, including personal use and inspiring ever more lies and deceit, and create an alternate reality!

The Total Unpredictability Of Donald Trump Matched Against His Desire To Be Our “Greatest” President: A “Wild Card” Presidency Awaits Us!

It is clear that Donald Trump is totally unpredictable in what he will do in the Presidency.

This is matched against his desire to be our “Greatest” President ever, in his own mind.

So a “Wild Card” Presidency awaits us, with probably some surprises that will be positive in some form, but also many surprises that will be negative. and some extremely negative and damaging to America and its stability, reputation, and long term future.

This is what has happened as a result of the anger of the American people over their dysfunctional government, much of it caused, ironically, by the Republican Party, and who are now being awarded total power out of the ignorance, stupidity, and bigotry of millions of white Americans, who have been fed the idea that the “black man”, Barack Obama was,somehow, an evil President, and that the only choice was to elect a person with no morals, ethics, experience, or qualifications to be President. The fact that he was a bully, racist, nativist, misognynist, and has white supremacists, conspiracy theorists, anti Semites, and homophobes around him only made him more appealing to those Americans who exude hate in their daily lives.

The next four years will be very troubling and disconcerting, but those who see the dangers, while hoping for the best, and willing to applaud anything good that Trump does, must be on constant watch to expose and reveal the shortcomings and dangers that Donald Trump represents. A constitutional crisis seems in the offing on so many issues, and life will be more difficult for those Americans who are minorities, women, poor people, middle class, labor, or environmentalists, as the truth about Donald Trump reveals itself, even to those who did not see it coming, and actually voted for a true demagogue!

The Mental Instability And Hatred At Trump Rallies Totally Terrifying!

We are living in dangerous times, and the most scary scenario is being at a Donald Trump rally.

We have white supremacists there.

We have Neo Nazis and Ku Klux Klan types there.

We have “Birthers” and conspiracy theorists there.

We have misogynists, racists, Islamophobes, nativists, homophobes, and xenophobes there.

We have women who could be imagined as Nazi concentration camp guards torturing people.

We have what could best be described as the most ignorant of the ignorant, who drink too much, use drugs too much, and think women are to be controlled by men.

We have people who want the “good old days” of segregation, lynching, and even slavery.

We have people who hate anyone who speaks a foreign language, or who is darker skinned than they are, and believe in an Aryan race mentality.

We have people who claim to be “good Christians”, but have no concepts of the true teachings of Jesus Christ, and are also anti-semites, who do not realize Jesus was a Jew.

We have people poorly educated, and reveling in that fact, and love their own ignorance.

We have people who would, willingly, in 21st century America, salute and obey an Adolf Hitler or Benito Mussolini.

The mental instability and hatreds of Trump crowds are stunning, shocking, and terrifying!

What has happened to our nation that we love, that we have such warped people within it, who have no interest in facts or truth?

Allen West And Sarah Palin: Quite A Team On Impeachment!

Former one term Florida Congressman Allen West and former Alaska Governor and 2008 Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin are leading the charge to impeach President Obama!

These two are such a comedy team!

West was pushed out of the military for his reprehensible behavior with a prisoner of war in the Iraq conflict, and has shown definite delusional behavior, a mentally ill man, who served only one term in Congress, but has gained a following from the extremist right wing, with his reckless, loony statements about many issues, but focusing his attention on the President.

Palin has been an embarrassment since John McCain picked her out of obscurity to run for Vice President, and she guaranteed that he had no chance to win the Presidency, because it was immediately clear that this woman has no knowledge base, is a total fool, and an annoyance for many Americans to listen to and watch as part of the news. She has never made any contributions in any form to public discourse, and is an embarrassment not only to herself, but to the Republican Party and womanhood itself!

A new poll shows that 54 percent want Sarah Palin to go away, and only conspiracy theorists and lunatics admire Allen West.

Each served for just a couple of years in public office, and one would wish that both would simply disappear from the political scene, as they will be condemned in history as whackos, and they both undermine the concept of public service!

And what they want, the impeachment of Barack Obama, is based on no credible case; will cost the taxpayers lots of wasted money; will undermine the Republican Party legitimacy; and will end up with Obama staying in office, standing strong against hate and prejudice unseen since the time of Abraham Lincoln!

And, as has been stated before, even if West and Palin and their ilk accomplished their goal of kicking Obama out of the Oval Office, he would be replaced by Vice President Joe Biden, who would proceed to be elected to one of two terms of his own, following similar policies and ideas of his boss, so what is gained by this caper, except the elevation of Joe Biden to the Presidency?

It is clear that West and Palin, and all those other whackos who want impeachment, have no clue or understanding as to what they are doing, and its implications! Ignorance and stupidity reign instead, in the brains of these two characters and those who follow and believe in them!

The Proper Decision By Barack Obama On Photo Images Of Osama Bin Laden!

We are so fortunate to have Barack Obama as our President, as he is such a wise man in so many ways!

The President’s decision today NOT to release photo images of Osama Bin Laden’s body makes total sense, as to do so would provoke violence and increase the possibilities of terrorism.

There is nothing to be gained by putting such photos into circulation. It would shock many sensitive people and children, and there is no need to waste effort trying to prove to conspiracy theorists that Bin Laden is dead, as there is absolutely no chance that he will suddenly emerge and tell us he is alive!

It is time for our government and intelligent, normal people to stop catering to conspiracy theorists!

Let them have their hallucinations and work on gullible people, while the rest of us deal with the real world that exists, and work to make our government operate better!

We certainly do not need to brag about what we accomplished regarding Osama Bin Laden, and it is a tribute to our President that he is not boasting about it, showing swagger, being cocky, which assuredly George W. Bush and Dick Cheney would have been had it happened on their watch!

Just because one accomplishes a goal does not mean we have to draw attention to ourselves, as the act alone is more than enough for a normal, healthy person. This whole matter shows just how well balanced and stable a President we have, and we should be thankful for that, and for his sound judgment!

The fact that Sarah Palin is finding fault with Obama on this matter is further proof of the stupidity and empty mindedness of this woman, who should never have been given a national stage by John McCain. As stated many times before, Sarah needs to be out of our lives, as she is detrimental to American sanity!
