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 […]

BLOG: Trump has SEVERE psychiatric disabilities. Here are links to several articles.

August 17, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Article #1:  Bully-in-chief: Experts say Trump’s ‘antisocial personality disorder’ fits a pattern. I have read a number of articles in which experts in psychology and psychiatry explain Trumps mental illness. This article does a good job and points out some interesting political aspects. While mental illness is not an impeachable offense, the 25th Amendment is a remedy. I am interested in that too, but that’s a long shot because the leadership for using that remedy would have to come from people close to Trump. https://www.alternet.org/2019/07/bully-in-chief-experts-say-trumps-antisocial-personality-disorder-fits-a-pattern/?utm_source=&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=828   Article #2:  Yale psychiatrist predicts Trump’s ‘disgrace and downfall.’ The article is at this […]

Solid info + smart insights: Psychoanalyst says Trump’s ‘mental pathology’ means he ‘hates reality.’

August 17, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

The quotations I have included here include some links to source materials.  Those links are live in the full article, which I have linked at the end of this blog post. The article I have linked at the end of this post starts with this paragraph: Donald Trump is a living, breathing national emergency. Our president has repeatedly encouraged violence against his perceived enemies — and at least some of his supporters are following his lead. These are not isolated incidents. There are dozens of court cases where Donald Trump has been cited for “inspiring” acts of violence and other […]

Federal courts are in crisis caused by Trump-McConnell and by Democrats’ negligence

August 13, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

The article linked here says Trump and McConnell’s Senate have packed the courts with right-wing extremists, but Democrats have NO PLAN to save the courts:  https://rewire.news/article/2019/08/02/where-is-the-bold-progressive-proposal-to-take-back-the-courts-from-trump/   Trump’s nominees are MUCH MORE EXTREMIST on the Right Wing than other Republican presidents’ nominees. But Democrats treat them as “business as usual,” and Senate Minority Leader (DEMOCRAT) Chuck Schumer FAST-TRACKED their rapid approvals.  See this article: https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/01/25/these-are-not-normal-nominees-trump-stacks-courts-far-right-judges-dems-urged?cd-origin=rss&utm_term=%27These%20Are%20Not%20Normal%20Nominees%27%3A%20As%20Trump%20Stacks%20Courts%20With%20Far-Right%20Judges%2C%20Dems%20Urged%20to%20Recognize%20Depth%20of%20Crisis&utm_campaign=%27This%20Is%20a%20Cave%2C%20Not%20a%20Wall%27%3A%20After%2035%20Days%20a%20Trump%20Agrees%20to%20End%20%27All%20for%20Nothing%27%20Shutdown%20%7C%20News%20%2526%20Views&utm_content=email&utm_source=Daily%20Newsletter&utm_medium=Email&cm_mmc=Act-On%20Software-_-email-_-%27This%20Is%20a%20Cave%2C%20Not%20a%20Wall%27%3A%20After%2035%20Days%20a%20Trump%20Agrees%20to%20End%20%27All%20for%20Nothing%27%20Shutdown%20%7C%20News%20%2526%20Views-_-%27These%20Are%20Not%20Normal%20Nominees%27%3A%20As%20Trump%20Stacks%20Courts%20With%20Far-Right%20Judges%2C%20Dems%20Urged%20to%20Recognize%20Depth%20of%20Crisis          

TRULY ALARMING comparisons between how Trump and Hitler gained power!

August 13, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

An experienced and prominent civil rights lawyer lists 20 ways Trump is copying Hitler’s early rhetoric and policies. This is not a trivial rant, but rather a VERY SOLID AND SUBSTANTIVE comparison that is TRULY ALARMING! The title of the article I linked below is “Civil rights lawyer: 20 ways Trump is copying Hitler’s early rhetoric and policies.” The subtitle is “Civil liberties lawyer Burt Neuborne questions whether federal government can contain Trump and GOP power grabs.” The author’s book says our nation’s checks and balances might not be enough to protect us from Trump’s Hitlerian rhetoric and policies based […]

184 House Republicans voted against protecting our elections from foreign interference!

August 10, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

The Mueller Report and much other compelling evidence have proved foreign nations have interfered with elections in the USA.  Any decent, patriotic American would want our elections to be clean and free from foreign meddling.  But Trump allowed it in 2016, and he publicly said he would allow it in 2020 too. On July 15, 2019, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the “Securing America’s Federal Elections Act” (the SAFE Act) by a vote of 225 to 184.  All of the 184 who VOTED AGAINST secure elections were Republicans. See this:  https://thinkprogress.org/184-house-republicans-just-voted-against-securing-elections-ee5dba5d71d0/  

Here is a great message for organizers for peace, social justice, etc. …

For many years Doris Haddock (affectionately known as “Granny D”) worked vigorously and walked extensively to promote worthy causes, especially getting big money out of elections. She said this: “Never be discouraged from being an activist because people tell you that you’ll not succeed.  You have already succeeded if you’re out there representing truth or justice or compassion or fairness or love.”    

These short videos call for impeaching Trump.

August 5, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

In just 32 seconds, this video shows Robert Mueller giving clear answers to questions about Trump’s behavior:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CD-Y2YxQzo0   In a little more than 2 minutes, this video provides more compelling information based on Mueller’s investigation.  It briefly explains why Congress ABSOLUTELY MUST impeach Trump.  U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib provided this video:  https://www.facebook.com/StandUpAmerica/videos/447717056042344/   In 4 1/2 minutes, Robert Reich explains convincingly why we absolutely must impeach Trump in order to protect the Constitution and the separation of powers, to prevent tyranny, etc..  This short video explains that our nation’s founders created the Constitution in order to prevent tyranny.  They […]

Few Americans know Constitution prohibits religious litmus tests for officeholders.

July 31, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

The Pew Research Center released survey results on a religious literacy poll which found that only 27% of Americans surveyed knew that the Constitution prohibits any religious litmus tests for officeholders.  The article I have linked below came from a great non-profit organization that vigorously protects the separation of church and state.  I enjoy reading materials from — and financially supporting — Americans United for the Separation of Church and State (www.au.org). SEE THIS ARTICLE: https://www.au.org/blogs/wall-of-separation/study-says-americans-have-a-few-things-to-learn-about-non-christian-faiths?utm_source=blogdigest&utm_medium=email        

Supreme Court rejected Trump’s census question — and after wanting to add it anyway he finally he gave up

July 19, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

I have been tracking the news of the deliberately racist, anti-immigrant, and highly partisan question about citizenship that Trump has been pushing hard to include in the 2020 census.  I have posted updates several times to my blog’s section on IMMIGRANTS (http://parallaxperspectives.org/category/immigrants-and-refugees).  See those previous posts for background on the controversy and why Trump’s citizenship question is such a horrible idea. Even after the U.S. Supreme Court explicitly rejected it and exposed the Trump regime’s blatant lies, Trump wanted to find some way to add it anyway, but he could not.  He even considered delaying the 2020 census (despite the […]

How We Got into Our Current Crisis

I wrote an insightful article in 2017, and it is still valid, so I updated it only a little and posted it here. I’ll write another proposing remedies for how to get out of this crisis.  Look for that within the next few weeks. How We Got into Our Current Crisis  

Progress toward replacing the Electoral College with National Popular Vote

May 17, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Previous posts on this blog have explained how the Electoral College frustrates honest democracy by over-weighting low-population states (which tend to produce Republican majorities) and under-weighting high-population states (which tend to produce Democratic majorities).  This partisan imbalance has caused several Republican presidents to get elected by Electoral College majorities, even though they lost the popular vote.  Trump is the latest example. Fortunately, a number of people and non-profit organizations have been pushing to replace the Electoral College with a National Popular Vote.  Changing the U.S. Constitution is a horrendously huge, slow process that is not likely because the Senate (which […]
