Donald Trump Remains A Menace, As He Lies And Continues To Spread Conspiracy Theories At CPAC

Donald Trump put on a performance of lies and deceit yesterday at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida, and it is clear that he remains a menace, as he spread conspiracy theories and Fascist authoritarianism!

Trump claimed Joe Biden has had the worst first five weeks as President in American history, a totally moronic and preposterous statement, as reality is just the opposite, so it demonstrates how Trump is living in an alternate reality, but with millions of crazy people who seem him as a God like figure!

Trump spoke of having “won” two elections, when he lost the popular vote by a massive margin twice, and his two impeachments also add to the reality that never has Trump “won” anything in his political life, other than the Republican Presidential nomination twice! He has never had a majority public opinion rating, while Joe Biden now has a 59-63 rating, depending on which public opinion polls one follows!

It was sickening seeing the absolute flattery and obsequious nature and sycophancy displayed by the long list of Republicans who are acting slavishly to Donald Trump, and the the thought of any of these disgraces being the next Republican Presidential nominee if Trump does not run, which is likely reality, is enough to make one vomit!

Unless the Republican Party pursues the nomination of a mainstream conservative, such as Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, Mitt Romney, or Ben Sasse, they are doomed to die in the next few years!

Asian Americans Under Attack Due To Donald Trump And His “Chinese” COVID 19 Assertions In Past Year!

The history of Asian Americans has been a tragedy.

It goes back to the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, enforced until 1943;

the discrimination and violence so evident in California history specifically toward both Chinese and Japanese immigrants;

the anti Asian editorial policy of the newspapers of William Randolph Hearst over the decades;

and the recent attacks on Asian Americans, particularly but not only Chinese ethnicity, caused by Donald Trump and his “Chinese” COVID 10 assertions.

Recently, there has been a massive number of attacks in New York City, San Francisco, and elsewhere toward Asian Americans, who have been stabbed and attacked in other ways, including against senior citizens, all due to the open racism of the 45th President’s rhetoric.

Other Asian immigrants, including Korean, Vietnamese, Indian, Pakistani and Japanese have been lumped together in the minds of racists and white supremacists, and the Republican Party has become the home of such hate groups!

CPAC Conference Clearly A Group Of White Supremacist And Evangelical Christian Extremists, NOT Conservatives!

The Republican Party has become a party of white supremacists, evangelical Christian extremists, conspiracy theorists, QAnon crazies, misogynists, and nativists who see immigration as a threat to the dominance of the dwindling white Christian majority, which will be a minority of Americans in the year 2045 or sooner.

The speakers at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida this weekend are a horror show of the worst of humanity, and headed by former President Donald Trump, who will spew forth more lies, conspiracy theories, hatred, and work to divide the nation ever more, rather than work to unite and advance the nation in the midst of the COVID 19 Pandemic and the economic suffering it has caused.

The Republican Party no longer represents mainstream conservative ideas and principles, and has repudiated the small band of 10 House members and 7 Senators who truly represent the values the party used to believe in and follow.

With Donald Trump Appearing At CPAC, Republican Party Is In Process Of Suicidal Behavior

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), occurring this coming weekend, is a situation of the Republican Party being in the process of suicidal behavior, by permitting Donald Trump to appear and rile his right wing base!

The Republican Party in Congress is imploding right now, between backing white supremacy and Christian Evangelicalism, and undermining the responsible conservative base, including Ben Sasse, Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Pat Toomey, Richard Burr, and Bill Cassidy in the Senate!

And the horrific reaction of Kevin McCarthy, House Minority Leader, to Liz Cheney, who has the principles and courage to make clear that Donald Trump cannot be allowed to be the future of the party, is a sign of long term decline. Instead of following Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, and eight other principled House conservatives, McCarthy is hitching his star to the crazed former President!

Biden Justice Department Needs To Prosecute Traitors In Congress Who Promoted Insurrection!

Once Merrick Garland is confirmed as Attorney General of the United States, which should happen next week, it is essential for the department to prosecute traitors in Congress who promoted insurrection on January 6, 2021, with emphasis on the “ring leaders”, Missouri Senator Josh Hawley and Texas Senator Ted Cruz, along with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana.

In theory, all of the 139 House Republican members, about two thirds of the total Republican contingent in that chamber, and all 8 of the US Senators, who refused to authorize the election of Joe Biden even after the Capitol Insurrection, should be expelled and prosecuted, but the leaders of the Sedition are more likely to be pursued, as the instigators of the treason!

And the people around Donald Trump, including the former President, also need to be held accountable, so that this domestic terrorism is stopped dead in its tracks!

And every single American who stormed the Capitol and can be identified, needs to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law as well!

500,000 Souls Lost To COVID 19 Pandemic In One Year: A Great Human Tragedy!

In 51 weeks, one week short of a year, we went from zero deaths to 500,000 deaths from COVID 19–February 29, 2020 to February 22, 2021!

The population of Atlanta—the number of dead in Arlington National Cemetery—the total of deaths in World War I, World War II, and Vietnam combined, which took two years in World War I, four years in World War II, and 12 years in Vietnam—this is the loss of a half million souls!

A President (Donald Trump) who presided over the greatest loss of life in one year, and showed no concern, no compassion, no decency, no empathy, as compared to a President (Joe Biden) who commemorated the loss tonight at the White House, and exudes concern, compassion, decency, empathy, not only on the loss of life in COVID 19, but on all issues that affect the American people!

We are finally on the road to recovery, although it will still be a long, hard fought battle, but thank goodness we have a decent President to take us through the darkness!

Rush Limbaugh, The Master Of Hate And Division, Leaves Tremendous Damage, As He Passes Away

Rush Limbaugh, the master of hate and division, the most despicable media figure in the past 30 years, has passed away at the age of 70, but leaves behind him tremendous damage in his wake.

The master racist, nativist, misogynist, homophobe, Islamophobe, and promoter of bad behavior helped to bring on Newt Gingrich, Ted Cruz, and so many others in his admiration, and ultimately, he made Donald Trump a person that many would admire, despite his horrendous behavior and utterances!

The whole concept of common decency, compassion, concern for others, empathy, unwillingness to attack and be nasty, mean, and vicious, never seemed to have been part of the brain matter of Rush Limbaugh, and the same applies to Newt Gingrich, Ted Cruz, and most damagingly, Donald Trump.

So Limbaugh will be remembered for his evil, sinful and non Christian ways, and as encouraging the media monsters who have copied him over the years, on radio, tv and in public appearances, and have enriched themselves in the process, including such as:

Sean Hannity
Laura Ingraham
Tucker Carlson
Glenn Beck
Bill O’Reilly
Ann Coulter
Michael Savage
Mark Levin
Michelle Malkin
Dennis Prager
Ben Shapiro

One Month Anniversary Of The Biden Presidency: Tremendous Initiatives And Goals And Early Success!

It is today one month since Joe Biden became the 46th President of the United States, and there is a sense of great optimism.

The basic decency, compassion, empathy of Joe Biden is very evident, and he has staked out goals in foreign policy and domestic policy, canceling out most of the damage done by Donald Trump in his horrendous four years in office.

Biden has embraced NATO and our democratic allies in Asia;

has made clear that America will hold authoritarian governments around the world accountable for their outrageous violations of basic freedoms;

has selected an exceptional group of Cabinet and other advisors to deal with the myriad of issues he faces, greater than anyone since Franklin D. Roosevelt nine decades ago;

has committed himself to the fight against climate change;

has dedicated himself to the need for immigration reform, and to protect DACA recipients who have been living in uncertainty for the past five years;

has worked to promote the environment and conservation after the worst environmental record of any American President;

has been moving forward on a major economic relief bill;

has surpassed his goal of daily vaccinations against COVID 19 and made it a national commitment, not just left up to states alone;

has made the fight for civil liberties, civil rights, and the struggle against racism, nativism, misogyny a major commitment;

has endorsed full protection for the gay and lesbian community;

and above all, has restored the dignity and prestige of the American Presidency which was in rapid decline.

Joe Biden may not be able to accomplish everything he wishes, due to political realities, but his heart is in the right place, and he clearly is out to promote progressive goals and work against domestic terrorist groups which endanger American democracy.

Ted Cruz Is A Monster, The Most Wretched Public Figure Outside Of Donald Trump!

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas is a monster, whose face and demeanor create the image of him being the Devil Incarnate!

Cruz is disliked by all his Senate colleagues, and he has no shame, or ethics, or morals, or principles!

Cruz is only interested in his own advancement, having no regard for anyone else, and allowed Donald Trump to call his wife ugly, and his father as involved in the Kennedy assassination, and yet go to dinner at the White House with his wife.

Now he was blaming his daughters for his decision to escape the horrible Texas Freeze which has led to a massive disaster for millions of people, and to run off to Cancun, Mexico, and only return hurriedly when he realized how horrible an image he had created for himself.

But he has no conscience, and even lies about his behavior in the midst of the Texas Freeze.

He also was one of the two culprits in the Senate, along with Missouri Senator Josh Hawley, to inspire the Capitol Hill Insurrection by their unjustified challenge to Joe Biden’s Electoral College win on January 6, 2021.

By all sense of justice, both Cruz and Hawley should be prosecuted for treason and sedition, and serve time in prison, and also be first expelled from the US Senate.

In 2016, this author and blogger thought Cruz was more dangerous than Donald Trump, and now Donald Trump is the only more wretched public figure in 2021 than Ted Cruz, although there is a long list of political leaders who are competitive as being worse than anyone except Cruz and Trump!

A Few Sane Republicans: Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger

The Republican Party in Congress has gone totally whacko, becoming a party which continues to deny that Joe Biden won the Presidency, and seeing Donald Trump as a God like figure, with Christian extremists saying Trump will become President again soon, totally delusional!

There are only a few sane Republicans at this point, including most notably, Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, Liz Cheney, and Adam Kinzinger.

If the Republican Party is to come back to the mainstream, which seems highly questionable, it will be people such as these four and a small group of others that will be in leadership.

A first thought that comes to mind is a future ticket of say, Ben Sasse and Adam Kinziger, both mainstream conservatives which this author and blogger would not vote for, but seen as sane and competent.

But the question is whether the Republican Party will survive as a mainstream party, with their cult like worship of an extremely flawed President, Donald Trump, who has become a burden on the nation at large!
