National Security Documents

Joe Biden Promotes Law And Order And Democracy, While Donald Trump Promotes Q’Anon Conspiracy Theories And Violence!

Yesterday, in Pennsylvania, President Joe Biden promoted law and order and democracy, defending the FBI and law enforcement in general, against the “MAGA” Republicans who, led by Donald Trump in his rant yesterday on his social media platform, advocated crazy Q-Anon conspiracy theories, inciting violence and bloodshed!

Biden called for making stricter gun laws to prevent the kind of mass bloodshed that has become a major crisis in America, and came out for promoting abortion rights, rather than the “MAGA” Republican move to outlaw all abortions, no matter what the circumstances, being pushed by the Far Right extremists!

Joe Biden represents stability and common sense, while Donald Trump clearly is panicking as the investigation of his taking national security documents to Mar A Lago, and refusing to return them expeditiously, indicates that he has been engaging in illegal, criminal activities, which is likely to lead to his indictment.

For South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to assert that any indictment of Trump will lead to bloodshed and violence and riots, is reprehensible, and must not stop the move to hold Donald Trump accountable for his multiple crimes and illegalities in the Presidency!

Trump seems to be, more than ever, acting in a manner that indicates panic and hysteria, and mental illness seems evident.

This man is a menace to America and the world, and must be prevented from ever again coming close to the Oval Office!

Republican Attacks On FBI, IRS, Election Workers A Reckless And Dangerous Escalation!

Republican Party leaders are escalating attacks on the FBI after the Department of Justice ordered intervention at Mar A Lago to retrieve national security documents illegally removed by Donald Trump when he left the White House.

Threats on the law enforcement agency and its agents make the Republican Party look like the party of lawlessness, chaos, and anarchy. This is all in the name of a former President who is promoting Fascist authoritarianism in his mission to regain power with the intention of destroying government institutions, with the help of the MAGA mob that can be seen as domestic terrorists, and Trump promoting their extremism.

But also, future potential House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is encouraging such action, with his promotion of conspiracy theories, along with a whole group of other reckless Republicans.

And Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, who if reelected in November at age 89, would be President Pro Tempore if the Republicans become the majority in the US Senate, is asserting a preposterous claim. According to Grassley, the new Inflation Reduction Act of Joe Biden, which allows 87,000 new Internal Revenue Service employees, is going to lead to such new employees having the authority to use force, including assault rifles against small business owners and middle class tax payers to collect taxes!

This is pure insanity, and to think that the third and fourth ranking government officials that may arise after the midterm elections are attacking the federal government’s ability to do their jobs of public safety and tax collection, is an alarm bell for the future of extremism!

And also, election workers are being threatened all over the nation, as Republicans aim at insuring that their party will take control of election machinery and insure that only Republicans can win elections in the future!

The Republican Party has become a “clear and present danger” to American democracy and the rule of law, and has made the Midterm Elections of 2022 more urgent than any midterm elections in the past!

August 8, 1974 And August 8, 2022: Irony Of Timing On Richard Nixon And Donald Trump!

In an amazing coincidence, 48 years apart, history occurred on August 8, 1974, and once again on August 8, 2022!

Richard Nixon announced his resignation from the Presidency on August 8, 1974, and left office the following morning, succeeded by Gerald Ford, with Republicans having helped to “push him out the door”, indicating loss of support in a possible impeachment trial.

Donald Trump’s Mar A Lago mansion was searched by the FBI last night, looking for documents of national security significance taken by Trump when he left the White House, and many not having been returned since, as required by the National Archives.

This is a serious matter, authorized by a federal judge and the Department of Justice under Attorney General Merrick Garland, and is not to be taken lightly.

Garland is a responsible, competent Attorney General, unlike those who served under Donald Trump, and indicates a serious criminal conspiracy case is in action against former President Donald Trump.

But right away, the right wing extremists are on the attack against Garland and the Justice Department and the FBI, led by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Texas Senator Ted Cruz, along with the extremists at Fox News Channel.

The Republicans in Congress are, as a group, acting very irresponsibly in support of Trump, while a half century ago, they abandoned Nixon!

There is talk of violence and lawlessness occurring once again, and we are entering a dangerous time, with concern for the safety and security of leaders of the Joe Biden Administration.

This is a time for praying for stability and calm, but no one at this point can predict the future!
