America's Loss Of Democracy
Senator Blackburn asks Trump, "Am I a woman?"
t-Rump just cannot be anything but a Putin idiot asset. He just can’t keep from drinking his own toxic Kool-Aid formulas. He continues to authorize Rudy ‘Ghouliani’ to speak for him. Rudy was on Newsmax and spoke of a bizarre and fantastical story about a conversation Duh’Fuhrer NITWIT had with his handler, Potentate Putin. He claimed that the NITWIT threatened Putin by bombing churches in Moscow. ‘Ghouliani’ said, “All this stuff about how he says Putin’s smart—that’s why he is a genius!” “Course he says he’s smart. ‘Hey, Vladimir, you’re really really smart, and then he’ll go on and say, he authorized me to say this, or I wouldn’t say it, as his lawyer.” “So, he has a meeting with Putin and he tells him, they’re talking about Ukraine and he says, “Vladimir, you shouldn’t, like, attack Ukraine, cause then I’m gonna—well I never liked those big—what are those things you’ve got in Moscow? Those big bubbles, those big gold bubbles. I never liked those things. So, I’m going to have to blow ‘em up.”
“So, Putin says, ‘They’re churches.’ And he said, ‘Oh, Vladimir. Don’t tell me that about churches. Oh, come on. Churches? You can fool Bush, you can’t fool me. Churches, you care about churches?’ That’s what he’s like.”
What world does t-Rump and his followers live on? You can’t make this stuff up!! What the GOP—Gang of Putin, and the American Christian Taliban manipulators understand is that over 50 percent of the population in this country are unable to read above the sixth grade level and “are not able to properly understand complex matters of politics and public policy.” Therefore, such people succumb to propaganda, manipulation, and conspiracy theories, if they are paying attention at all.
The United States ranks 36th in the world when rating literacy. Finland has the highest literacy levels in the world. Believe it or not here are the other top countries when rating literacy levels of their population: Finland, Norway, Luxembourg, Andora, Greenland, Liechtenstein, Uzbekistan, Latvia, Estonia. Ukraine is 17th, and Russia is 20th. Their literacy levels are much higher than half of Americans!! No wonder fascism, authoritarianism, white Christian nationalism, and conspiracy cultism has grown in the United States. Truth and fact no longer matters.
While the GOP—Gang of Putin—ran their mouths at the Senate Judiciary committee nomination hearing, which could be seen as Judge Jackson’s job interview for a seat on the U.S Supreme Court. They were able to show everyone just how much they love to talk about pornography, Critical Race Theory, and children’s books they didn’t approve of. If Putin was watching these showboating performances by the American Christian Taliban (ACT) for Trump and all his zombie followers, he would have been laughing.
Senator Lindsey Graham-Cracker had to show the country that he, too, was a member of ACT by asking Judge Jackson what was her religion and what were her beliefs. Lindsey forgot that asking a person about their religion on a job interview is illegal. (“Under federal law, it could potentially be illegal to ask a potential job candidate about religious affiliation or beliefs. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin.”)
The monsters in the Trump American Neo-Nazi Party (TANNP) were in rare form. Senator Nightgown-Teddie KKKruz had to ask questions about three of his favorite subjects: porn, grade school books he doesn’t enjoy reading, and Critical Race Theory. He tried to cast Judge Jackson as a radical Black woman.
And then there was Marsha Blackburn who wanted to piss off all her white nationalist grievance supporters by trying to make Judge Jackson into an angry Black woman by following in Teddie’s footsteps. None of it worked. Judge Jackson couldn’t have been more graceful, and heartwarming. Nightgown-Teddie forgot that his daughters attend an anti-racist oriented school, as do Judge Jackson’s kids. Yet, Teddie had to condemn a number of anti-racism books at the Judge’s private school. Hypocrisy runs rampant throughout the Senate’s ACT followers.
These two fools had nothing better to do during the Senate Judicial confirmation hearing than to ask Judge Jackson to define what is a woman. Sadly, Blackman after all these years and all he beauty queen pageants, while gloating at herself before a full-length mirror still has no idea that she is a woman. Maybe these two are aliens and haven’t realized that they were made into a man and woman upon landing on Earth? Maybe on their planet there are no genders. Or, how about American eunuchs? And, Nightgown-Teddie still has no idea that his children are girls. So they asked for help from Jackson to give them a definition of exactly what is a woman. Her answer was “I am no biologist.” Maybe they need to bring in Kaitlyn Jenner for a more definable explanation.
We cannot leave out another high profile ACT member, Ginni Toadstool Thomas. She has shown herself to be an American-style domestic terrorist who repeatedly texted Markie Moscow Meadows, Trump’s one-time chief of staff, pushing him to prevent Biden from being inaugurated as the next U.S. President by finding proof to overturn the election because the election was stolen out from under Duh’Fuhrer tRUMP’s RUMP. Duh’Toadstool Thomas would exchange in these texts believing Jesus would reinstate t-RUMP back into the White House. Isn’t this what the Taliban believes? Instead of Jesus saving the day, Allah would step in and conquer all in the name of Islam. Maybe Ginni and Markie believe that Mighty Mouse will fly in and say, “Here I come to save the day!” Isn’t the very thing Thomas and Meadows were engaging in was JIHAD against the American people who voted against t-RUMP? (a struggle or fight against the infidel enemies…infidels—a person who does not believe in religion or who adheres to a religion other than one's own.)
Her delusional conspiratorial sociopathic fantasies contained images of Biden being part of a crime family syndicate that would be rounded up, jailed on a secret barge parked off the coast of where Gitmo prison is located to await a criminal tribunal trial. She is so insane!! Her relationship with Mark Meadows must be investigated for a conspiracy—a Jihad— to interfere with a legitimate election.
As the free world is on the brink of another world war, these ACT monsters, pretending to be patriots, are nothing more than cowards immersed in fantasy, lies, hate, and fascism/Nazism. They are running away from what is really important to America’s future stability and freedom.
They focus on their self-righteous minutia, all the while China and Russia are planning the takedown of the NATO alliance and free world democracy. Ukraine is the sacrificial lamb in the greater plan. They want to establish a stronger and more powerful opposition to NATO, calling it their Eurasia Alliance consisting of China, Russia, India, Pakistan and the other surrounding countries. China wants to peripherally include countries on the continent of Africa by improving their living conditions with improved trade routes, new roads, infrastructure, schools, and more in exchange for the extraction of their valuable mineral resources, such as cobalt, which is very abundant and needed for the expanding technological industries. China has created their own 21st century Marshall Plan, which is ten times the size of what happened in the 1950’s post WW2 Marshall Plan designed to rebuild Europe, which is now to be used to create their own Eurasia Alliance.
Following World War 2, the U.S. was the dominant superpower taking advantage of valuable resources, such as oil, gold, crops, transportation routes, military dominance, and minerals by installing puppet governments and exploiting the native peoples. China has taken on this role in the 21st century. The dollar has been used as the dominant world currency especially when trading oil and gas, which would be exported to the U.S. And then, bought back when these same countries wanted to buy American weapons and military services. Trading goods and services in these countries was done in dollars, so when weapons were needed they were bought with those very same dollars. China has been trying to reverse this domination that has existed for the past 75 years, and especially the last 20 plus years. Trade still uses a “basket of currencies” including the yuan. Saudi Arabia has been negotiating with China to use the yuan in the sale of their crude oil. There are serious dangers when relying on fossil fuels.
It is now about hegemony. A China-Russia hegemony.
China has not gotten involved in Russia’s war against Ukraine, yet has thus far ignored the trade sanctions and boycotts. They are still buying Russia’s oil and gas, as is India and even Germany.
Unless Germany and Italy want to see more Russian military aggression, Germany needs to cut off Russia’s oil and stop dragging their feet. Italy needs to stop dragging their feet, too, and seize Russian oligarch vessels and villas.
Putin continues to threaten chemical, biological, and even tactical nuclear strikes. They have already hit Ukraine with a phosphorus bomb, which could be considered a chemical weapon. Putin hired his oligarch thugs to pay Ukrainian Nazis to paint Swastikas around Ukraine. China is doing nothing; although, they should be worried. Are they willing to experience serious economic and fiscal and social upheavals if the war becomes more deadly? The big question is will China continue to ignore the Russia embargo/ sanctions?
Both China and Russia see an advantage within geopolitics because of the virtual size of the Eurasian landmass, which populates 70% of all people, and what can be produced by all those people. They see a new global order emerging from their ultimate power and control.
“And so, what we are witnessing is the violent eruptions of a great tectonic shift in global power. As U.S. global power declines, China ascends.” “I’d say, by 2030, by the end of this decade, it will become clear that U.S. global power has eclipsed, that power has shifted to Beijing on the Eurasia landmass, and they are the new global hegemony, constructing a new kind of world order, far less concerned with human rights, far less concerned with law, a kind of transactional world order of mutual convenience.”
What would turn this trajectory of the Eurasia Alliance from achieving their hegemonic goals? For one, a defeat of Putin’s genocide against freedom and democracy. And, as President Zelenskyy has called for worldwide anti-war protests to end this war. A Vietnam style war protest needs to rise up fast. And, of course, stocking Ukraine’s armed forces with massive amounts of hardware to attack their enemy. China needs to see that NATO members are all in support of the Ukrainian military to defeat Putin’s genocide. China needs to see that the world will not tolerate such violence against others if world stability is to be achieved.
Another factor in ending the next Putin-style war is to stop the use of oil and gas. Not only would it help worldwide stability, but, also, to slow down our climate crisis. Dictators use oil and gas sales as an economic weapon. If countries around the world can be self-sustaining energy producers, then dictators will no longer be able to weaponize their oil and gas. That would take two resources off the table as a type of economic weapon used by dictators. Of course, countries could use other resources as weapons, such as crops, minerals, and water. But if countries could power themselves using solar, wind and geo-thermal technologies, then that would help the globe to become more stable and self-sustaining.
Hostile dictators will always find ways to disrupt global stability by finding vulnerabilities using cyber-attacks against another country’s national security and infrastructure. Attacks using cyber-warfare against water treatment facilities, financial institutions, the software inside vehicles, and defense systems, is already happening. But, at least, the use of oil and gas would no longer be a factor.
So, the monsters running away from America’s monumental dangers and concerns are too focused on trivia in order to get attention from their angry, small-minded, ACT base of zombie followers. Instead of Congress, and the states demanding a massive new Marshall Plan for the purpose of developing and a country powering itself using alternative energy systems, they are focused on stuff that diverts the focus away from what really matters. It appears it is all getting worse and not better. The Trump American Neo-Nazi Party are filled with people who really don’t care about the real dangers facing the country. Americans only begin to deal with a serious crisis when it is on the verge of losing its grip and finding a solution begins to slip away, as with our climate crisis. Too many high level political figures don’t know the difference between a climate crisis and daily weather patterns. “Climate change is a hoax,” or “it’s a thing called weather” as heard from the leaking brain of t-RUMP. So when democracy, freedom, liberty, civil rights, and more are nearly gone from the world’s stage, those GOP—Gang of Putin—and the American Christian Taliban— their grip on their gullible followers might have slipped away. With nowhere to go in the world, it may be too late to gather an alliance to recapture their lost democracy, liberty and freedoms.
This was found on Salon.com written by Chauncey DeVega titled “How democracy dies: When it comes to Jan. 6, the American people can't handle the truth.” This article is worth reading every word. Henry A. Giroux was sited in the article. He wrote numerous books and DeVega interviewed him. Here is what he said,
“Not only did the culture shift to a market-based language that undermined any sense of the common good, shared values and trust, but it embraced a language of privatization, deregulation and commodification that commercialized all social relations and retreated from any discourse that evoked matters of ethic, social responsibility and the obligations of citizenship.
In the current moment, the Republican Party and its allies among the financial elite, corrupt politicians, and right-wing movements hold democracy in contempt because it poses a threat to the unchecked accumulation of capital, white nationalism, white supremacy, and an emerging fascist politics. In an age when economic activity is divorced from social costs, and matters of truth, justice, and solidarity become the object of scorn, democracy and the formative educational culture that legitimates it withers along with the ideals and institutions that sustain it. At a time when all vestiges of critical thought are being purged from public schools, women's reproductive rights are under attack, and tyranny translates into increasing levels of violence, the collapse of conscience, social responsibility, and justice proceeds at an alarming pace.
Faced with these "forces of conformity, anti-intellectualism and authoritarianism," Giroux continued, ordinary people tend to "lose their capacity to think critically and act responsibly. ... [C]ritical modes of agency wither, opening a space for both oppressive forms of education and the tyrants that benefit from them. ... [T]he public imagination succumbs to lies, conspiracy theories and the cult of the strongman. Under such circumstances, the commanding visions of democracy have not only disappeared, they have given way to the tyrannical nightmares of an authoritarian future. It is little wonder that a great many people no longer care or are willing to fight for a democratic society.
It is no wonder that a country that ranks 36th in the world when it comes to literacy, while over 50 percent of its people are reading below the sixth grade level, and cannot comprehend complex information, and lacks critical thinking skills voted for a stupid, grifting, lying, psychopathic con-man to sit in the White House for four years; and voted for the despicable likes of Margie Taylor Greene, Mattie Gaetz, Lauren Boebert, and Maddie Cawthorn, just to name three, who are the founding members of the Congress’s New Three Stooges Caucus.
