TV: “Impeach Trump to Protect the Constitution and the Rule of Law”

August 26, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

The September 2019 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series builds a solid case for protecting our constitutional democracy by activating the part of the Constitution that our founders created in order to correct the kind of crisis our nation is experiencing now. Two knowledgeable guests — Bonnie Jones and Steve Rubicz — discuss what impeachment means, how it works, the compelling reasons for impeaching Trump immediately, and what the American people can do now – instead of waiting for the November 2020 election.  Bonnie and Steve are active with Puget Sound Communities for Impeachment. Our nation’s founders wanted to […]

It is POLITICALLY SAFE to impeach Trump. Most House Dems want to impeach him now.

August 26, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

As of August 26, 2019, a clear majority of House Democrats — 130 — want to impeach Trump.  A majority was reached at the beginning of August 2019.  See this article:  https://www.huffpost.com/entry/house-democrats-majority-impeachment-inquiry-donald-trump_n_5d4316c4e4b0ca604e2ebeca?ncid=newsltushpmgnews__Politics__080219     This article from August 13, 2019, says that it is POLITICALLY SAFE to call for impeaching Trump:    https://www.thenation.com/article/democrats-impeach-donald-trump/ This article says House Democrats should not worry about impeaching Trump – and pundits should stop trying to make Democrats worry about taking that action. The article says worrying about “swing districts” exaggerates the actual Trumpiness of those districts. The 2018 midterm election showed that Democratic voters […]

Trump wants to take away your right to get information. SIGN PETITION.

August 26, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

On August 20, 2019, this information came from the non-profit organization at www.198methods.org: The Trump administration is trying to rewrite the rules on the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in order to keep pollution and corruption hidden from the public. The key is what’s called a “no records” response, which allows political appointees like Andrew Wheeler and David Bernhardt to decide what information is released to the public. Fortunately, a bipartisan group of senators has introduced the Open and Responsive Government Act of 2019 to safeguard FOIA requests and ensure the public’s right to information.

Trump’s Atty. Gen. William Barr is WRONG about policing: Here are two articles.

August 26, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Trump’s Atty. Gen. Barr demands absolute obedience to police and attacks “social reformers.”  See article:  https://www.businessinsider.com/william-barr-zero-tolerance-fraternal-order-police-speech-2019-8   The Justice Collaborative (www.thejusticecollaborative.com) reported in August 2019 that “[i]n a public speech, Barr took a major jab at prosecutors who fight to end mass incarceration – claiming they lead to more crime and more victims. He warned of ‘District Attorneys that style themselves as ‘social justice’ reformers,” claiming they are “anti-law enforcement.’  But here are the facts: between 2007 and 2017, 34 states reduced both rates of incarceration and crime – proving that mass incarceration does absolutely nothing to improve public safety.

Bill McKinnon urging us to strike for the climate on Sept. 20, 2019:  https://www.commondreams.org/views/2019/08/21/youth-adults-join-us-climate-fight Calls for maximum adult participation in the young people’s climate strikes:  https://www.ecowatch.com/climate-strikes-public-participation-2639336361.html?rebelltitem=1#rebelltitem1 A 17-year-old climate justice activist admits to being “terrified of what the future holds if we remain on our current carbon trajectory.  The climate crisis looms over every single decision I make, and impedes any and all plans I try to make for the future. I have never known a time in my life where life on earth as we know it wasn’t coming to an end thanks to the climate crisis. It’s time […]

Bernie Sanders proposes a $16 TRILLION Green New Deal — and proposes how to pay for it

August 24, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

The climate crisis is extremely serious. Modest efforts (like nearly all Democrats tolerate) will NOT be enough! The cost of doing nothing will be HORRIBLE for our quality of life, for the survival of humans and our civilization, and for the economy.  (Some people don’t care about the first items here, but damage to the economy might get their attention. Bernie Sanders proposes cutting the military budget in order to fund the Green New Deal.  The military FAILS to protect us, but the Green New Deal is absolutely necessary for our protection — and our “national security” if you want […]

Even more evidence that Trump is far, far too crazy to be president

August 22, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

A psychiatrist warned that Trump is in a “psychotic-like state” and “he’s empty.”  Read this interview and watch the powerful 9-minute video.  The Constitution’s 25th Amendment creates a way for high-ranking federal officials to remove a president who is physically or mentally unfit to serve, but this article and the video do not address it.  Thoughtful people can pursue that along with impeachment for Trump’s many crimes and his many violations of the Constitution.  Many of those are rooted in his extreme craziness. Here is the article:  https://www.alternet.org/2019/08/hes-empty-psychiatrist-warns-trump-is-in-a-psychotic-like-state/?utm_source=&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=1220&recip_id=22838&list_id=2     Evangelicals told Trump he was ‘chosen’ by God. Now he […]

Some Democratic presidential candidates are funded by billionaires, but not all are.

August 21, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Recently Kamala Harris declined to participate with other presidential candidates in a climate debate because she wanted to use that time to attend a fundraising event featuring EXTREMELY RICH people.  Public blowback forced her to change her mind about that. The article at the following link says, “Buttigieg Has 24 Billionaire Donors. Harris Has 17. Biden Has 13. Sanders Has None.”  The article’s first three paragraphs say: “A recent analysis of Federal Election Commission (FEC) records found that there were 67 billionaire donors giving to 2020 Democratic candidates. “And out of all 20 candidates who debated in Detroit, Michigan last […]

This smart, short video explains why top executives’ income has grown much, much more than workers’ pay – and how we can reduce that gross inequality.

August 21, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Robert Reich (a previous administration’s Secretary of the Department of Labor) has continued to pay close attention to public policy issues, especially related to economics and political fairness.  He wrote this: Average CEO pay at big corporations topped 14.5 million dollars in 2018. That’s after an increase of $5.2 million per CEO over the past decade, while the average worker’s pay has increased just 7,858 dollars over the decade. Just to catch up to what their CEO made in 2018 alone, it would take the typical worker 158 years. This explosion in CEO pay relative to the pay of average […]

Trump’s FBI, etc., go after blacks, Muslims, etc., but largely ignore white nationalists and right-wing terrorists

August 21, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

The term “terrorist” has been slanted to make people think of Muslims. The term “gang” has been slanted to make people think of Blacks or Latinos. But actually, nearly all of the mass shooters have been white, and many of them have been RIGHT-WING EXTREMISTS (some quoting Trump’s rhetoric) who targeted the groups that the Trump regime and other propagandists have been pressuring the public to fear and hate (LGBTQ folks, Muslims, Jews, etc.), along with random people. If we want to stop the epidemic of mass shootings — and hate crimes — we must look at who is committing […]

The Green New Deal would be good in many ways!

August 21, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

The Green New Deal is an amazingly good idea.  It provides fresh thinking “outside the box” by bringing together environmentalists, labor, local communities, poor people, young people, and other diverse constituencies.  It is a “win-win-win-win-win ” all the way around.  I urge all kinds of people to work together in grand coalitions to pass the Green New Deal through Congress. In the 1930s, FDR’s New Deal helped our nation in many ways.  Now we need a NEW “GREEN New Deal” to help us in many ways, including the environment and climate, which were less pressing issues during the 1930s.   […]

Practical strategies for forestry, agriculture, etc., to protect the climate

August 21, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Much of the effort for the climate focuses on what NOT to do:  what to do less of, and what to stop altogether. Let’s also promote POSITIVE REMEDIES.  Smart science has identified several PRACTICAL STRATEGIES for forestry, agriculture, etc., that can protect the climate.  Here are a few examples.   #1.  Plant trees to protect the climate. Better yet, CUT DOWN FEWER TREES.  Let’s sharply reduce the number of trees that are cut down.  Let’s protect rainforests, other forests, and random trees everywhere. The article at the link below begins with this paragraph:  Every year, an estimated 15 billion trees […]
