The U.S. Constitution created a nation with CHECKS AND BALANCES in order to prevent any part of the government from grabbing more than its fair share of power and abusing us. Our TV program about impeaching Trump explains this further — and builds a solid case that Congress must impeach Trump for seriously violating those CHECKS AND BALANCES and committing impeachable offenses against the Constitution and the rule of law. Here is the link to watch the interview and/or read a thorough summary of what we said and see links to additional information: http://parallaxperspectives.org/tv-impeach-trump-to-protect-the-constitution-and-the-rule-of-law Trump hired William Barr to […]
Trump and the Republicans do NOT want an honest government that will function properly and serve the public interest (by protecting consumers, the environment, social justice, constitutional rights, etc.), Trump and the Republicans DO want government to perform the bad functions (military violence, cruelty to immigrants, violations of human rights in the U.S. and worldwide, massive imprisonment, etc.). Accordingly, Trump has refused to fill many vacancies for high-level federal positions that serve diplomacy, the environment, and other useful functions. Now the Federal Elections Commission — which is responsible for making sure elections are fair — is prevented from functioning because […]

After the 2016 election I wrote a thorough essay about how we got into our nation’s current political mess. This “mess” had already existed before Trump came along as a politician. The “mess” has several component parts. One of the problems leading to our current crisis is that right-wing Christianity merged with the Republican Party in the 1970s. This corrupted both Christianity and our nation’s political and societal realities. Here is a VERY SHORT SUMMARY of this: In the 1970s several right-wing Christian TV preachers and junk mail organizers mobilized millions of right-wing people around “culture war” issues. They worked […]
Our society is suffering in many, many ways. The problems are all around us — and they are interconnected. They are rooted in a worldview that has been dominating the U.S. (and some other nations) increasingly in recent decades. I wrote a long article about this. Here is a very short article that summarizes a few of the main points. I published it in a recent issue of Works in Progress (www.olywip.org): This currently dominant worldview is hurting us.
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 […]
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 […]
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.
