The President with Something to Hide

Paul Manafort was the campaign manager for Trump at the start of the coordinated Putin - Trump election misinformation and hacking campaign currently in the news.  That makes him very vulnerable of a witness in the Mueller investigation into that corruption.  But...

Then, we hear that Manafort has received 60 million dollars from the Kremlin and personally approved through the Cypress bank by it's then head... Trump Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, making it a 60 million dollar payoff and debt they can collect to keep his mouth shut.

But, this is just the latest story of many of a President very occupied with keeping eyes off himself...

..A month ago, the secret service was evicted from Trump tower base by Trump.
..Trump is using private attorneys rather than government ones so they can't be compelled to testify.
..Trump fired every Attorney General and US attorney investigating him and explicitly stated Sessions only got the job after promising not to investigate.
..Trump tweeted recently a Republican was "set up" by being recorded, fitting personally with his own claims of being set up by the press being "fake news" for reporting his own words and speeches.
..Trump feared he was being "wiretapped" during the election by Obama and went on to have his staff saying "they" can watch you through your microwave.
..Trump fired heads of every government branch and replaced them with people he can control.
..Trump put a Breibart executive over the national security council to know what intel had on him, and he has let it be known that he still questions them as to if he is subject of investigation.
..Trump STILL has not released his tax returns.

The list goes on, but what is clear is the President FEARS anyone watching or recording him.  As conservatives have so often said in the past to liberals wary of "terrorist" investigation of muslims... Why would he hide, if he was not guilty? 

Now, for the hard working muslim or African American under surveillance without cause, such objection to being watched is valid.. They have a right to privacy.  However, for those denying that right to them, how do they justify Trump BLOCKING such monitoring without suspicion?

If we are going to investigate every immigrant from foreign lands, why are we ignoring investigation of one that financially profits from foreign interests?

Especially when he so explicitly is trying to hide.

GOP "Pence Rule" Highlights Women as Sex Objects

People that are rarely aware of their bigotry, whatever that prejudice may be, and it is not entirely their fault. Often, it is the result of cultural influence on them. They grew up in it as their basis for judging "normal" from "different," and unfortunately, for conservatives, better is not based in what improves mankind but allows it to walk backwards in time to a "simpler day" in their mind...which really means not having to challenge their prejudices or to change.

How they treat women are examples of this, as is how they treat former slave races in their states, how they treat Union states, how they treat other countries, how they treat children, and etc. But, for women, it means getting back to the simpler days, when the "Divine purpose" for women was to bear children and be silent and submissive to men.

If you think that is an over exaggeration to make it sound like handmaids tale,consider this, which they consider to be the "infallible word of God"...

"Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law says. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church." - 1 Corinthians 14:34-35

Or this...

"I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. But women will be saved through childbearing" 1 Timothy 2:12-15

So, it is no wonder, then, when the GOP President's response to them is to grab them by their privates and the "Pence Rule" counter is to just not be alone with them. BOTH are symptoms of the same illness of prejudice that doesn't answer with... Just see them as equal people, because GOD tells them, in their mind, that they are not.

Prejudice does not disappear easily and will likely not change in those that have it. The BEST we can hope for is to keep them from positions where they can use it.

Fascism Alert: Wash Post: Evangelicals Proving Critics Right

And..the second source follow up for my blog post, yesterday.  In that post, I said...

"Conservatives will NEVER center, since they feel that their way is straight from GOD (literally...just like the Shite Muslims believe) and, as such, is how EVERYONE should live to please a vengeful judge over the world."

And, we read from the Washington Post, today..

"For years, Democrats accused Christian conservatives of being closet theocrats, seeking to impose Christianity on the country and refusing to accept, let alone embrace, American diversity. That was a generalization, but it turned out to be more true than not.
... it’s common to hear other conservative Christians say that Trump’s unexpected win — down to the electoral college — shows that God had a more-deliberate-than-usual hand, and has put Trump there for some reason.
...That’s stunning to the many Americans who think the divine right of kings was what we fought against in the American Revolution. A God-chosen president can do no wrong, tell no lie, make no error. And that, it seems, has been the default setting for many of Trump’s most loyal supporters among the religious right."

And, sadly, that IS the not the exception but the RULE, as religious dictators guide their congregations to adopt this mentality as their EVANGELICAL KINGdom is established.

Fascism Altert: Trump EXPLICITLY attacks Free Press

This is the first of two short follow ups (confirmations) of what I said, yesterday, about the GOP.  When you get done reading this, go read how the GOP is ending America.

Yesterday, I said...

"The Bill of Rights protections of free speech are DAILY condemned by the man sitting in the oval office, who also condemns the FREEDOM of the Press of those that condemn him and the FREEDOM of RELIGION of those not of his philosophy."

And, today, we have this tweet by the President...

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
"With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!"

Why #GOP rule will end the #USA (and maybe it should)

The historian in me has been wary of the direction of the GOP in this nation for years, because we have seen all this, before in other nations.  Our framers designed the guarantees of FREEDOM in this nation as a means to making sure no group could dominate and control other groups and in so doing PRESERVE this country, and it worked for a long time.  One party would gain the upper hand, but they would be blocked from stamping their foot on the freedoms of others to disagree by the Bill of Rights that protected the rights of the minority to speak out and live their own lives their way.

Yep, catholics could live side by side protestants by people of no faith, because they were PROTECTED in their freedom of religion.  People could openly condemn George Washintonton or slavery or what was considered unwide military or economic policies, because of the first amendment...allowing them to rise up a change in the party elected in the NEXT election and so as to keep the balance.  The President could not act without the authorization of the Congress or vice versa, and both had to listen tot he Supreme Court.  ALL of the provisions of the Constitution were designed for ONE objective, to RESTRAIN and LIMIT those in power to keep them from interfering with the rights of the citizens.  Indeed, the colonies would not even CONSIDER adopting the Constitution, until there was added to it a Bill of Rights to protect the citizens FREEDOM from that government.

Fast forward to the current day.  Within the span of a little over ONE year, we have seen the entire political landscape change, and those "rights" are now declared TREASON by ONE MAN in the White House.  The Bill of Rights protections of free speech are DAILY condemned by the man sitting in the oval office, who also condemns the FREEDOM of the Press of those that condemn him and the FREEDOM of RELIGION of those not of his philosophy.  However, that is not the ONLY right he has trampled on.  The right to DUE PROCESS has been eliminated, as he judges entire groups guilty by their RACE or National Origin.  He has rejected the balance of power, stating that the Supreme Court has no authority to deny him, which was their stated purpose in the document.  He has bypassed Congress to change laws and finances without consult of Congress.

And, states' rights?  Forget it.  For a party that claimed they were simply being victimized and wanted to live their own lives their way, they have taken the Presidency victory as a green light to deny LIBERAL STATES from living THEIR own way.  Trump and the GOP will not ALLOW sexual diversity within liberal states, will not let those states hand out birth control in insurance plans, will not allow them to use block grants to erect environmental protections or allow them to use such block grants to determine what THEIR schools teach and what they do in regards to protections from guns or abuse.  And, God forbid that a NEW YORK (Liberal state) newspaper writes a LIBERAL comment to its LIBERAL readers about Trump or even SIT for the national anthem.

We all know this, but some have a mistaken belief that I think is best answered in my RELATIONSHIP book Forward to Happiness, since the concepts we see in relationships are the SAME concepts we see in business and government, as well...

"In a '.. #relationship of use and abuse, and the solution for that is ALWAYS to leave, because no one can love ANYONE to make them change.'" - Forward to Happiness, Basic Principles


And, that is what I have concluded is coming, eventually, for this nation, due to the very same principles.  The FACT is that the GOP doesn't WANT to concede, and...in fact....when Trump or anyone else does any "deal" with the Democrats, they condemn the GOP member or voter for NOT fully backing the President, and why should that surprise anyone?  Their CHOSEN leader as President, when elected, broke with the tradition of ALL former Presidents...EVERY SINGLE ONE of them...that upon election CENTERED to represent not just their own party but the entire nation that they, now, represented.  However, TRUMP upon winning literally said, "I won," to anyone that asked him to center, even if he won by getting LESS than a majority of the voters.  Yet, in doing so, he EXACTLY represented his Conservative BASE that feels the same way.

And so, yes....I do think the country will fall apart, and I think that it would be a good thing at this point, because we no longer represent FREEDOM, as the founders desired or LIBERTY as seen in the famous bell in PA or statue in NY.  Conservatives will NEVER center, since they feel that their way is straight from GOD (literally...just like the Shite Muslims believe) and, as such, is how EVERYONE should live to please a vengeful judge over the world.  When they are in the minority, they scream at being FORCED to allow difference of opinion and see others are people worthy of poverty aid or freedoms of expression; and, when they are in power they seek to extinguish those freedoms and protections from all others.  So, like any marriage that will no longer compromise, it may actually be time for a divorce, so we can go to our own corners, and states without the historical witch burning, cross burning, religious minority as majority can live in peace.

Considering the last 9 months...ONLY 9 months, can you believe it...PEACE sounds like a good idea.

Conservatives: Death is Price of Freedom.. OUR Freedom, Not YOURS

After the horrible shooting, last week, the GOP response went out thus...

"This is the price of freedom. Violent nuts are allowed to roam free until they do damage, no matter how threatening they are" - Former Foxnews host Bill O'Reilly - Newsweek

Yup, and the GOP broadcast the same message, everywhere, including the President saying that this was a disturbed man (as he cuts funding for mental health treatment).  You know...we just HAVE to allow this kind of violence, because they have the RIGHT to their FREEDOM.

So, suddenly the GOP gives a shit about FREEDOM?  Indeed, the SAME time that they were touting the freedom of people to own and carry guns, they were...

...denying freedom of women to have birth control
...changing the law to allow discrimination against transgendered people and homosexuals
...protesting a person's FREEDOM to KNEEL SILENTLY during the Pledge of Allegiance

So... to be clear and simply collect what they are saying in one sentence.... We must allow mass shootings for the sake of conservative FREEDOM to weapons of mass destruction, but liberals are not FREE at all, since we will decide your gender, your clothing, how you have sex, your political views, and whether you have children or not.

Uh huh...

My EXPERIENCE working in TRUMP's VA

This summer, I got a job working in Trump's Government in the VA...which was a HUGE (to quote a Trump favorite phrase) mistake.  I am much happier working for much less, after I quit a few weeks ago.  However, I felt that it would be good to give you an insider account of what that was like.

First, when I got the job offer, they didn't have a dollar amount on the job offer.  I asked what the details of the job offer would be like, and I was told...I kid you not...that I would find out how much I would be paid AFTER I accepted the job.  I voiced how this was not how professional work was, but I accepted and was told.  Then, even though it took months to apply, I had to wait 4 weeks for the start date....4 weeks of expenses adding up, while I was waiting for the job to begin, causing financial stress, which was added by waiting 3 weeks, after hire, before the first paycheck.  So, in 2 months after accepting the job offer, I got paid for ONE paycheck.

But, moving on from money, we came into the position and arrived waiting to learn our job, and the people we were working for informed us that they didn't know when we would start training, and they told us that we needed to call the help desk, ourselves, to set up our account access, which we had to do about 10 times for difference accounts.  After a month of being assigned busy work, we finally started an online course that would be filled with issues of system access and the fact that there was no standard way to do anything among the VA groups, but we had to follow a standardized training program.

Before I continue, there is a reason I said that this was TRUMP's VA.  We were also informed by our local group that it didn't used to be done this way.  Used to be that someone would arrive and start working, immediately.  However, under THIS administration, we had to do this online program, which would end up teaching us nothing, and after two months of "training" we began actual training.

Back to money for a second.  Along the way in the training, we found our supervisors surprised at our pay level, because starting positions used to be GS 6 positions, but we were started at GS-5.  To put that in layman's terms.  TRUMP REDUCED THE PAY OF MY POSITION BY 5,000 PER YEAR, RIGHT BEFORE WE BEGAN, for the same position.

At the end of several months of driving two hours a day to reach and get home from a very disorganized position, I gave my notice I was quitting that day, because, "It's not like I am DOING anything to require two weeks."

There are other things I could mention, but I will just mention one more.  The final week, I worked 4 days into my pay period and had a few days of vacation pay earned and not used.  So, upon the next pay day, what do you think I saw....yup, pay for 2 days without notice or explanation.

THAT is what it is like to work in TRUMP's America.

Did AMERICA Vote for Trump?

By now, you know that Clinton DID win the most votes in the last election, even though Trump weaseled his way in by way of crafting electoral math in order to get the most electoral votes.  One would assume that someone that only won by a technicality and wasn't the popular vote would mediate to the center to please ALL those he represents as President...but, of course that is not what we got.

Trump declared himself AMERICA's Choice by way of winning the electoral votes.  However, let's look at exit polling at Pew Research.  Did Trump win...

Blacks?  No. Clinton won that group by 80 percent.
Hispanics?  No.  Clinton won that group by 36 percent.
Women?  No.  12% more women voted for Clinton than Trump.
College Graduates?  No.  The educated chose Clinton by 9 percent over Trump.
Young voters?  No.  Clinton won those 18-29 by 55 percent compared to trump's 37 percent.

So, No...AMERICA didn't vote for Trump.  OLD, WHITE, MEN did.  And, THAT is just a statistical fact.  If nothing else, one day that generation will die.  THEN, maybe America will be GREAT, again.

GOP vs Trump Showdown and What it Revealed

The devil went down to Georgia...or Alabama, as it may be..a few weeks ago is a surreal showdown that most of the world didn't notice, because Trump kept them busy talking Football or Newscasters or such.   It was an election for the US Senate, and Trump had staked his name upon the NON evangelical candidate that was running against the ultra conservative Roy Moore, who was backed by the religious right.  Moore, you see, was a former state justice that was famous for saying things like homosexuality should be illegal and defending the statues of the Ten Commandments (I think it is telling the conservatives always defend displays of LAW and not GRACE, but moving on).

Anyway, it wasn't that Trump was trying to preserve his party from religious nuts, as he was saying the same extremist things.  He was just wanting to elect a congressman that owed him and, as such, would go along with whatever he asked, without question.  Indeed, Vice President Pense's aid was just busted on audio tape indicating that the Trump administration intends to run candidates against EVERY Republican that expresses free will apart from what he wants for the country or that questions him in any way...like a good little dictator that he is.

However, a few things need to be noted.

1.  The GOP is the extremist force in the country.  It is NOT an EXTREME Trump leading a reluctant party, but...as this election showed... the party is going to be extreme, even if  it has to run AGAINST the President.  Keep this in mind, once Trump is no longer President by passage of 4 years or impeachment, whichever comes first.  Also, remember it come next year's congressional election.

2.  Neither Trump nor the GOP are willing to concede and compromise with anyone.  That is why they are running against THEIR OWN PARTY, as they argue about who has more power to be the final word on how everyone (even non Republicans) should be in the nation....and neither is ASKING or LISTENING to voices other than their own.  If you look at Trump's Twitter account, you will see that while he is wanting the entire country to follow him on there, he is only following, HIMSELF, his own family and Fox News and other extreme conservative media sources.

3.  All republican choices are terrible.  As this election previewed, the future Republican primary elections will be a choice between a warmongering paranoid old man or those that feel God told them how YOUR life should be lived. 

Honestly, I'd rather just have the quiet democrat that lets me be with my own life. 

Hurricanes, Fires, Floods, Death .. Is GOD Happy With Trump?

So, I wanted to do a post to the evangelical Christian out there.  Not to the leaders, as they literally SOLD their soul for wealth (against Jesus word) and to a fascist party a long time ago.

As someone that has walked the road you are on, before.... I have a B.S. from Falwell's Liberty University in Bible Studies and has evangelized online for years a while back...all in the name of "saving the world" and fearfully preparing for a wrathful God to return (somehow love got lost in there)...I want to speak to you heart to heart.  Before you refuse the brain that God gave you and close your ears and scream la la la la la like a 4 year old, consider the following about the man that your leadership is telling you is GOD'S choice to be President.

In the last half year, since Trump has been President, we have had to face not one but THREE massive hurricanes that destroyed MASSIVE amounts of land....in areas YOU live (conservatives), and as a result some of the most populated areas spent a month under water and reeling from flood damage. There have been wildfires that raged and rages throughout the central western United States.  A few days ago, someone took many machine guns and emptied them on ...again...CONSERVATIVES watching a country music artist.

The reason I mention that it was conservatives that are suffering is that this is the group (if any) that God would protect in your mind...right?  I mean, the rest of the world is lost in your mentality, so they would face the judgment of God.  However, this judgment is falling upon YOUR lands...YOUR homes, YOUR families, YOUR finances, and YOUR lives.  So, why isn't God protecting YOU?  You are calling on the nation to pray for you, but you were already praying, so why has God abandoned you?

Perhaps, it is because you have turned your back on him by voting for a confessed adulterer (he cheated on each of his wives with his next wife), sexual assaulter, and someone that promotes WAR, which God told you to avoid being PEACEMAKERS.  Perhaps, God is upset that your churches have become Altars of profit, like the ones Jesus turned over, and He is upset that you are picking up stones to throw at more of his children... that just happen to be different from you... calling for them to be crucified rather than spared by the very crucifix Christ was on.

Now, I know most of you will not listen, because you are conditioned not to think or read the Bible for yourself, but the last time I was in the Evangelical, Charismatic churches and watching TBN I was being told that fires, floods, storms, death, and hunger were signs of the end days with evil leaders.....so, maybe you should stop to think and pray where your CRUSADE is taking you, before you find yourself staring at God and trying to explain why you chose the GOP over GOD and Loyalty over LOVE.

Be FREE ... It Pisses Off Those in Chains

How to start this...don't you hate it when you have competing voices of sources in your head wanting to be notice first...ha.  Maybe it's just the mind of a writer.

I grew up hearing all these stories about how you should "go your own way" (Fleetwood Mac) and be your own person.  We had Breakfast Club with a group of kids determined to chart their own path, Footloose about dancing if you want to dance (in spite of religious condemnation).  Indeed, the COMMON theme in the 80s and 90s was being YOUR OWN PERSON,  in SPITE of those that want you to be a cookie cutter version of themselves.

It's not a new theme.  Shakespeare wrote "to thine own self be true" and the entire country of the USA was founded on people that fought to BELIEF AND WORSHIP THEIR OWN WAY, against the way of the countries they fled.

Then, we got to the late 2000's and early 2010's and absolutist fascism took over.  One group....Republicans and specifically EVANGELICAL Republicans revived their Inquisition and Crusade roots of their religious bodies, convincing me that I cannot endorse ANY Christian denomination, even though I am a Christian, because they retain without condemnation the heritage of those that burned witches, stoned girls having sex, and converted at the edge of a sword in RICH houses of worship paid for by taking money from the poor and suffering.  Every time a "new" church begins to break way and attract believers wanting religious freedom, the backbone of Christian organized religion sets in and says "and now, THIS is how you must believe and practice to be a REAL believer."  Until the established church condemns it's structural past, we are doomed to repeat it, and I cannot participate in a religion that defies the love of Christ to evangelize LAW and CONDEMNATION.

And, so I live free.  This year, particularly, I have fully embraced the advice I have given to "follow your bliss" (to quote Joseph Campbell).  The idea he proposed was this..

"Yet it is important to note that following one’s bliss, as Campbell saw it, isn’t merely a matter of doing whatever you like, and certainly not doing simply as you are told. It is a matter of identifying that pursuit which you are truly passionate about and attempting to give yourself absolutely to it. In so doing, you will find your fullest potential and serve your community to the greatest possible extent." - JCF

Indeed.  To boil it down, do what you want to do.  In doing so, you will be BEING your TRUE SELF, as you were created to be and following the best advice for every decision and display your true face to the world...the face that you were CREATED to be.

In Silmarillion, JRR Tolkein had a section about the song of the universe..

"Eru brought all the Ainur together and declared that they would play a song greater and more complex than they had ever sung before. He told them that they would be allowed to weave their own thoughts and ideas into this Music, since they had been kindled with the Flame Imperishable and thus had the power of creativity."

Get that...they ALL had been kindled by the Flame Imperishable and, as such, had a voice to play in the great song of creation in order to achieve true harmony and the full expression of creation.

However, in that story,  Melkor disturbed the harmony by getting prideful of himself and trying to force the music to be ONLY how he wanted it to be....sound familiar?

Yes, we have our own Melkor's in our society that, while racist-ly declaring others tbe "different" requires them all to be like themselves.  So, the rich and white preachers declare the attitudes of the poor, divorce, sick, or of another party to be SINFUL, since THEY declare THEMSELVES to be the standard of righteousness, having never experienced the sufferings of the lives they condemn.

 I remember when I first WOKE to this (to quote SNL ha).  It was after I could no longer take being used and abused by my ex and decided to actually live happy and consider my own needs that my ex was not even noticing.  The church IMMEDIATELY set out to condemn me, citing scriptures against divorce, while at the SAME TIME ignoring the PAIN and SUFFERING I was experiencing in that dysfunctional marriage. So, those that had only known a loving relationship was telling me how I needed to live in suffering, which was really easy for them to do not having to LIVE the advice they would give.  The same can be said of their advice of "suffering for christ" in poverty with expectation, when those same pastors give not a PENNY of their own money to the poor out of fear of experiencing the same life, themselves.

There is a song in my most recent running playlist on my fitness blog http://runmyownlife.blogspot.com that conveys this.... Shinedown - What a Shame..

"What a shame, what a shame
To judge a life that you can't change
The choir sings, the church bells ring
So, won't you give this man his wings?
What a shame, to have to beg you to
See we're not all the same"


Indeed, we are NOT ALL THE SAME, and that is not only OK, it is HOW IT WAS CREATED to be, and, until we are willing to allow others that are different to be themselves and listen to the song they create, we will NOT be the society the creator wants, either.

As for me and my web presence, I welcome all ...all religions, races, all sexual orientation and all genders, and if that last one confuses the conservatives, see my posts on the topic.  Male isn't male isn't male, and female is not female isn't female.  However, just as an example, if I were to choose a gender that matched what makes ME happy being, it would not be the average male, not liking football, fighting, competition, etc and being very sensitive to the poor and suffering, hurting, and liking the arts, music, fashion and deep meanings in songs, painting, and life.  In fact, I hate being around MEN, and I have since I was young and have always got along really well with women, which does not make me a MUTANT (to quote X Men) to be hunted as in The Gifted but it makes me HUMAN and a part of the great chorus of life.

What distinctive notes do YOU have to  play in harmony with the world?  Are you playing them, or are you a slave to the Melkor's of this world, who will use you to their own ends and forget you ever existed for them.  Maybe it's time to let your voice be heard.

Forward to Happiness, Basic Principles - 34 reflections on the path to happiness - $0.99


Forward to Happiness, Basic Principles was previously two ebooks that I released called Forward to Happiness and Living First Edition, as a collection of the blot pieces I had posted on blogs of both names in 2016. However, I have since realized that Living First Edition is a subset of living a life FORWARD to HAPPINESS, as ...once you have moved ON from UNHAPPINESS you must set about to establishing a life free from the negative influences of the crowd still living in the darkness of mental slavery to self-sacrifice to the god of OTHER PEOPLE'S EXPECTATIONS.
