White Supremacists

Only 9 House Republicans Voted To Hold Insurrectionist Steve Bannon In Contempt Of Congress

To demonstrate how corrupt and hypocritical the Republican Party has become, only NINE House Republicans had the guts and courage to uphold a contempt of Congress on former Donald Trump aide Steve Bannon, the true epitome of a full fledged Fascist-Nazi type character, who has long preached and promoted violence, bloodshed, and seizure of the government by extremist white supremacists.

These are the nine brave souls:

Liz Cheney of Wyoming
Adam Kinzinger of Illinois
Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio
Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington
John Katko of New York
Peter Meijer of Michigan
Fred Upton of Michigan
Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania
Nancy Mace of South Carolina

The first two named are on the House January 6 Committee investigating the horrid events of that day, two weeks before Inauguration Day of Joe Biden.

The next five are five of the ten, including Cheney and Kinzinger who voted to impeach Donald Trump in the second impeachment trial.

The last two are newcomers to expressing opposition to Donald Trump and his lackeys in Congress.

They are all going to be targets of Donald Trump and his supporters, as they work to cover up and act as if nothing unusual occurred on January 6, 2021.

Donald Trump Calls Mike Pence A “Statue”; Others Call Pence A Fawning, Admiring Sycophant!

Donald Trump has called his Vice President, Mike Pence, a “statue”, for refusing to prevent the Electoral College victory for Joe Biden on January 6, 2021, which led to the US Capitol Insurrection that is now being investigated without the support of the Republican Party faithful, who mostly still support Donald Trump.

Mike Pence was under threat on January 6, 2021, and Donald Trump did not care, and for that alone, Trump should spend the rest of his life in prison for treason and sedition, including the endangerment of all members of Congress, and the destruction that went on in the US Capitol building by the right wing white supremacists who were assisted by some of the Republican members of Congress!

Mike Pence took his constitutional duties seriously, and the fact that the Republican Party continues to support Donald Trump, is disgrace and an insult to Pence!

But it is reality that Mike Pence has proved until that date, January 6, 2021, to be a fawning, obsequious sycophant, who embarrassed himself by his public signs of total loyalty and unwillingness to show any guts or courage to Trump’s outrageous behavior during his term, and he will not be looked fondly upon in history!

Rather, he will go down as a too obedient, overly admiring individual to Donald Trump’s misbehavior over four years, much too weak and unwilling to show guts, courage, and a spine until the most dangerous moment in American history since the Civil War!

The “Ups And Downs” Of Ranking Presidents Over Time

Historically, many Presidents have gone through periods of low esteem, and then, suddenly, high esteem in the minds of public opinion and also, Presidential scholars.

Abraham Lincoln had a very divided nation in response after his assassination, and only in the early 20th century, did the nation decide to honor Lincoln with the construction of the Lincoln Memorial, dedicated in 1922. He has been rated Number One by just about every Presidential scholar and poll, except those right wing Confederate sympathizers and white supremacists

Harry Truman left office in 1953 with a very low public opinion rating, and was regarded poorly in assessments of Presidents, until after he passed away in 1972. In the next five years, as TIME Magazine termed it in the late 1970s, we had “Truman Mania”, as massive research and writing on Truman caused his rise in stature to as high as Number 5 in scholarly polls on Presidents.

Dwight D. Eisenhower left office with an image of a passive, lazy President, and the vitality and youth of his successor, John F. Kennedy, did not improve his image, and he was seen as not an outstanding President. But his historical reputation has risen dramatically to the point that in many scholarly assessments, he is now seen as number 5 or 6 among all Presidents.

Lyndon B. Johnson suffered mightily in assessments due to the Vietnam War, despite his amazing domestic accomplishments of the “Great Society”, and was poorly rated for 20 years. But now, he is somewhere between number 9 and 11 in rankings of Presidents.

Jimmy Carter has never risen from the mid to low 20s in rankings and popularity, but it seems possible to imagine that when the longest lived President eventually passes away, that his rating may go up much more than many might now imagine.

Republican Party: White Supremacists, Conspiracy Theorists, And Lunatics!

The Republican Party has become a party that caters to white supremacists, conspiracy theorists, and lunatics!

It is a party that promotes racism, nativism, misogyny, Islamophobia, and has elements of antisemitism!

It is a party that has massive liars, criminal elements, and financial and sex scandals that keep on emerging!

It is a party that only the extremist right wing religious freaks who are Christian and Jewish find comfortable, as it promotes values that are the hypocrisy of religion, instead advocating religious hatred and persecution against others who dare to challenge their warped views!

It is a party which has done great harm for decades to anyone who is not wealthy and privileged, and yet, has found many struggling middle and working class people gullible enough to support them based on promotion of hatred of those of a different skin color or religion!

It is a party that needs to be cleansed of its cancerous elements, and a new party created to promote sincere, scandal free, conservative values to revive a healthy two party system in America!

Donald Trump (Alternative Reality) Defends Rioters in January 6 Capitol Insurrection As No Threat, And “Hugging And Kissing”!

Donald Trump, the former “Insurrectionist in Chief” and would be “Dictator in Chief” is trying to change history, when he said this week that the rioters in the January 6 Capitol Insurrection, which caused the death of Brian Sicknick, two other Capitol officers committing suicide, and more than one hundred injuries to other Capitol Officers, was a “zero threat”, and that his supporters were “hugging and kissing”!

The desecration at the US Capitol is also overlooked by a man who clearly is the most dangerous person to American democracy, and now faces legal actions on many fronts. Trump also had nothing to say about the threat to former Vice President Mike Pence, who the rioters were chanting that he should be hanged, and a noose was present outside the US Capitol!

Trump is poisoning the Republican Party, and his loyal followers still represent a threat in the coming years, and one can sadly expect other violence and destruction being perpetrated by his Fascist supporters, who are white supremacists, racists, nativists, antisemites, and a threat to civil order as domestic terrorists!

Donald Trump needs to be held accountable in a court of law for his massive crimes against women; his promotion of violence and bloodshed among his crazy followers; and his economic crimes!

Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson Emerges As Unapologetically Racist, A Variation Of Wisconsin Senator Joseph McCarthy Sixty Years Ago!

Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson defeated the superb Senator Russ Feingold for his Senate seat in 2010 and 2016, a shocking state of affairs!

Johnson has embarrassed himself and his state with his outrageous racist and moronic utterances over the past ten years, but now he has gone beyond the pale in trying to claim that the January 6 Capitol Insurrection was really not so, even though five people died, and many Capitol Police were badly injured, in the process of the destruction and desecration in that building, the first time since the War of 1812!

And Johnson defends the white supremacists and racists who stormed the building, and says he would be more worried if Black Lives Matter demonstrators and Antifa, both promoting social justice and opposing Trump Fascism, had been involved in the attack.

Hopefully, Johnson will not run for reelection, but if he does, the motivation must be to remove from the Senate, as he is a total disgrace.

It reminds one of the similar tragedy of anti Communist “witch hunter” Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin defeating the great progressive Republican Senator Robert La Follette Jr, for his Senate seat in 1946, and then unleashing the disgraceful Red Scare, known as McCarthyism from 1950-1954.

And McCarthy’s chief aide, the infamous Roy Cohn, ended up later as an advisor to businessman Donald Trump, so the curse of Roy Cohn stretched from Joseph McCarthy, a true demagogic Fascist, to Donald Trump, another true demagogic Fascist!

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.

Women Will Determine That Joe Biden And Kamala Harris Become President And Vice President!

It is a well known fact that for many decades now, women have been heavily Democratic voters.

The question is how to encourage more women to vote, as if they do, they insure Democratic Party victory in November for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

It is clear that suburban white women, African American women, and Latina women are going to commit themselves to voting, organizing, and convincing others to engage in the campaign, as they despise Donald Trump’s racism, nativism, Islamophobia, his courting of white supremacists, and his misogyny.

They despise him also for his support of those who wish to take the right of a woman to control her body away from them, and also his anti gay and anti transgender agenda.

Donald Trump has been a disaster for women’s rights and human rights, and large numbers of motivated, committed, and intelligent women of all backgrounds are united to remove him and Vice President Mike Pence from office!

Trump Proved Why He Is Unfit To Be President In Presidential Debate, So Just VP Debate And No More!

Donald Trump was a total disgrace in the first Presidential debate last evening!

He would not follow the agreed upon rules, not to interfere, and to stop interrupting when Joe Biden or moderator Chris Wallace were speaking. The moderator should have shut off Trump’s microphone when Biden was being allowed his two minutes to give an answer to a question.

He refused to condemn white supremacists, and refused to agree to concede if he is declared the loser, and encouraged his supporters, in such a circumstance, to provoke civil unrest.

He acted like a 2nd grader, and lied incessantly, and was totally rude and bullyish throughout the debate!

Donald Trump declared war on decency and democracy. He endorsed white supremacist terrorist groups, such as “Proud Boys”, which is anti Semitic, anti Islamic, anti gay and transgender, anti immigrant, and misogynistic, and provokes violence, with Trump promoting them going to the polls and “watching”, a guarantee of bloodshed and violence!

He acted very UnPresidential, as Joe Biden declared, and embarrassed all decent people, as no President or candidate in any debate has acted in such a manner in the history of Presidential and Vice Presidential debates!

Meanwhile, Joe Biden kept his cool, and acted very Presidential, doing a lot of shocked and laughing gestures at the shameful display of horrible behavior by the man child who is our disgraced 45th President! 🙁

One cannot imagine how Joe Biden will not gain much more support nationally, and hopefully, defeat Donald Trump in a massive landslide in November! And early post debate polls indicate Biden “won” the debate two to one!

The Vice Presidential debate between Mike Pence and Kamala Harris one week from today should go forward, but the last two Presidential debates should be canceled, as America has seen enough, and there is nothing positive to be gained by Biden debating Trump again!
