I warned the Democratic Party in 2016 and now again for 2020.

January 19, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Throughout 2016 I kept telling the national Democratic Party and its various front groups that Bernie Sanders was the VERY BEST on the issues, and he RESONATED WITH THE PUBLIC’S DEMAND FOR STRONG PROGRESSIVE CHANGES, and he was INSPIRING NEW PEOPLE TO VOTE, so if Bernie Sanders would become the nominee, he would WIN IN A LANDSLIDE, and he would have long coat-tails that would elect Democrats all the way down the ballot, including Congress and state and local offices. Instead, the national Democratic Party TRAMPLED OVER THE VOTERS’ INTERESTS and crammed Hillary Clinton down our throats, despite the fact […]

We need a constitutional amendment to guarantee the right to vote

January 19, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Many Republican-dominated states and local jurisdictions have been using various ways to reduce the ability of Democratic-leaning demographic groups (minorities, poor people, young people, etc.) to vote. Most Americans do NOT know that there is NO constitutionally protected right to vote! We MUST AMEND THE CONSTITUTION to GUARANTEE the right to vote! See this article: https://www.bostonglobe.com/2020/01/01/opinion/think-constitution-guarantees-your-right-vote-think-again/?utm_source=Demos&utm_campaign=4e20bed514-EMAIL__2020_01_08_the-WI-voter-purge_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_e07d7f6936-4e20bed514-66872317      

Some of Trump’s WORST judicial nominees are GROSSLY UNQUALIFIED and IDEOLOGICAL EXTREMISTS.

December 29, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Trump has appointed a GIGANTIC NUMBER of federal judges.  Already he has appointed more than 150 judges to the bench. A Trump appointee now holds one in four seats on federal courts of appeals. The Senate’s top Democrat, Chuck Schumer, has supported the top Republican, Mitch McConnell, in FAST-TRACKING Trump’s nominees with very little oversight by Senate, despite the Senate’s constitutional responsibility to seriously consider those nominees. Trumpism will PERSIST FOR DECADES throughout the federal judiciary because Trump has nominated people who are terribly unsuited to be federal judges and who are YOUNG and will hold federal judge positions for […]

THESE should be Articles of Impeachment to remove Trump!

December 29, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Trump has committed MANY, MANY violations of the Constitution and MANY, MANY violations of federal law. But the House Democrats have given him a FREE RIDE — negligently EXONERATED him — for NEARLY ALL of those violations, which REALLY ARE IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES! THESE ITEMS IDENTIFY SOME TRULY IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES.  The House should create Articles of Impeachment for these:   Ted Rall, who — besides being a skilled cartoonist — is also a savvy political analyst, urges these impeachable offenses:   https://www.opednews.com/articles/The-Articles-of-Impeachmen-by-Ted-Rall-Articles-Of-Impeachment_Bipartisan_Conviction_Senate-191228-892.html   Paul Blumenthal urged impeaching Trump for these reasons:  https://www.huffpost.com/entry/trump-impeachment-impeachable-act_n_5de6edb3e4b0913e6f872731?ncid=newsltushpmgpolitics   One of the strongest, most consistent non-profit organizations urging […]

This is TRULY ALARMING! MANY, MANY psychologists and psychiatrists are alarmed about Trump’s deteriorating mental condition!

December 28, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Mainstream media and both big political parties picture Trump as a politician and fail to recognize the EXTREME DANGER he poses to the entire world because of his SERIOUS MENTAL DISORDERS.   MORE AND MORE psychologists and psychiatrists are alarmed about Trump’s deteriorating mental condition!   Here are some RECENT assessments and warnings:   Yet one more psychologist calls for an intervention because Trump is increasingly sociopathic: https://www.alternet.org/2019/12/its-time-for-an-intervention-with-the-increasingly-sociopathic-president-psychologist/?utm_source=&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=3302   Psychiatrists sent an urgent warning to Congress about Trump’s deteriorating mental state.  The article I linked below starts with these short paragraphs and continues: A petition signed by at least 350 […]

Biden’s anti-Trump campaign strategy is simplistic and deceptive — and a sure way to lose in 2020.

December 28, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

In 2016 Hillary Clinton campaigned by telling voters that the status quo was just fine and she would tinker only a little around the edges. In contrast, Trump recognized that problems existed and voters were angry. (Trump lied about many things, but at least he did tap into the anger, so millions of voters rewarded him.) Once Trump took power, the entire Republican Party rallied around him with absolute loyalty like a cult’s true believers. Actually, the entire Republican Party really has been very Trump-like for many years (racist ever since Nixon’s 1968 “Southern Strategy” of racism, utterly subservient to […]

Trump and the right wing have built him a cult of fanatic “true believers” who reject truth and democracy — and might become violent anarchists if he loses in 2020

December 22, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Since 2017 I have posted a number of items to this blog explaining the amazing rise of Trumpism and his fanatic “true believers” in the extreme right wing and the Religious Right. The Republican Party has purged its moderates and replaced them with grossly ignorant and cruel people who reject truth and reject democracy in order to blindly, ignorantly support the Great Leader who trusts his “gut” about the climate instead of respecting honest science. The list goes on and on.  Who could have imagined such extremism just a few years ago? Kidnapping thousands of immigrant children and imprisoning them […]

Impeach Trump for MANY, MANY reasons!

December 11, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

For nearly half a century Common Cause (www.commoncause.org) has been working for honest, accountable government. They support impeaching trump for MORE REASONS than merely his crimes related to his Ukraine scandal. See their report at this link: https://www.commoncause.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/PatternsofDeception_Report_WEBBlanks.pdf Urge House members to impeach Trump for MANY REASONS, including these. Limiting the Articles of Impeachment to Trump’s attempt to get dirt on Joe Biden can be dismissed as mere partisanship (in some people’s simplistic view), because House Democrats have been EXONERATING Trump on all of his MANY, MANY violations of federal law and MANY, MANY violations of the Constitution. House Democrats […]

House Democrats helped COVER UP Trump’s many crimes and violations of the Constitution!

December 11, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats allowed Trump to ESCALATE his crimes and his violations of the Constitution for almost three years.  Trump is a bully, so he recognized the Democrats’ timidity as EXONERATION and an opportunity to ESCALATE into doing worse and worse things. From Trump’s VERY FIRST DAY IN OFFICE he was using his presidential power to enrich himself.  This BLATANTLY VIOLATES the Constitution’s explicit prohibition against “emoluments” (a late-1700s word for this kind of corruption), both for enriching himself from domestic sources and from foreign sources by exploiting his powers as President of the […]

The 2020 election may hinge on universal healthcare

December 8, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Public opinion polls keep showing A MAJORITY OF VOTERS demand UNIVERSAL SINGLE-PAYER health care! But the institutional Democratic Party is NOT LISTENING TO VOTERS! Biden, Buttigieg, and other “centrists” are really CONSERVATIVES who OPPOSE WHAT THE VOTERS WANT.  Their ANTAGONISM TO THE VOTERS is REPELLING VOTERS away from the Democratic Party. In order to win, DEMOCRATS MUST INSPIRE VOTERS WITH BOLD PROGRESSIVE PLANS – such as Universal Single-Payer – that will inspire new people to come out and vote Democratic. Instead, the institutional Democratic Party is ANTAGONIZING AND REPELLING VOTERS by letting conservatives (Biden, Buttigieg, etc.) dominate the party.  “Centrists” […]

VOTERS DEMAND strong climate actions, but Joe Biden’s top climate advisor is a high-level person from the fossil fuel industry

December 8, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

FACT #1:  OVERWHELMINGLY, a STRONG MAJORITY OF VOTERS — across the entire political spectrum — care about the climate crisis.  Voters demand strong actions to curb the climate crisis. FACT #2:  Young people are ESPECIALLY outraged that our government has failed to take strong actions for the climate. FACT #3:  The Democratic Party KNOWS that in order to win it ABSOLUTELY MUST INCREASE VOTER TURNOUT. FACT #4:  Joe Biden seems UTTERLY CLUELESS and appointed as his TOP CLIMATE ADVISOR someone with a long history within the fossil fuel industry. Biden is SO CLUELESS that he will REPEL VOTERS — especially […]

The Democratic Party ALSO suppresses voters, but unwittingly and in different ways.

December 8, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Many people denounce the Republican Party for DELIBERATELY INTERFERING WITH PEOPLE’S RIGHT TO VOTE. State and local governments that are dominated by Republicans pass laws and regulations that make it hard for the “wrong” kinds of people (people likely to vote for Democrats) to vote.  Republicans DELIBERATELY remove polling places in minority neighborhoods, purge voting rolls, limit early voting, require excessive ID, prevent returned felons from voting, etc., etc., etc.  Republicans DELIBERATELY SUPPRESS voters because Republicans’ overall policies are so cruel and unjust that they cannot win on the issues, so they resort to restricting voting rights so their true […]

Why the national Democratic Party keeps losing — and will likely lose again in 2020

November 30, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Here is how democracy is supposed to work:  People with their “ear to the ground” listen to what the voters want.  They campaign for office with platforms promising to accomplish what the voters want. Most of the 2020 presidential candidates are NOT doing that.  Several of the front-runners (Biden, Buttigieg, and other “centrists” — who are really conservatives) are running for President by INSISTING that voters can NOT have what they want!!! Voters want to get big money out of politics, but the national Democratic Party and the “centrists” fall short. Voters want HEALTH CARE FOR EVERYBODY, but the most […]
