Trump is mismanaging the Coronavirus pandemic in several ways

February 27, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Trump says Coronavirus will end soon by itself (just like he says the climate hoax is only a temporary blip from which temperatures will soon return to normal all by themselves). Trump and the Republicans have been VIGOROUSLY trying to take away people’s health care. “How Can the US Confront Coronavirus With 28 Million People Uninsured?”  That’s the headline of this article:  https://truthout.org/articles/how-can-the-us-confront-coronavirus-with-28-million-people-uninsured/?eType=EmailBlastContent&eId=15b13ca9-b4b1-4b7e-8943-c7940ab56757 Also, Trump’s decision to put Pence in charge of Coronavirus is utterly stupid and wrong.  See this:  https://a.msn.com/r/2/BB10tK6y?m=en-us&referrerID=InAppShare   I have found informative, science-based, understandable videos about the Coronavirus at www.peakprosperity.com.  There’s other stuff on that website too, but […]

U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar Has a Plan to Revolutionize U.S. Foreign Policy

February 27, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Ever since the 1940s, the U.S.’s foreign policy has been overwhelmingly bi-partisan.  Regardless of which party is running the Executive Branch or the Congress, the U.S. has promoted a U.S. empire that has dominated much of the world politically, economically and militarily. Dick Cheney’s horribly stupid and cruel Endless War on Terrorism persisted through 8 years of George W. Bush’s presidency — and through 8 more years of Obama.  Obama actually ESCALATED some aspects of the Bush-Cheney abuses!  Obama escalated the drone wars, deployed military “Special Forces” to parts of Africa, radically increased the deportation of Latin American immigrants, and […]

Obama was far too timid for 8 years. His “centrism” hurt the USA and helped to elect Trump.

January 26, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

The Democratic Party keeps glorifying Barack Obama and claiming he had a terrific legacy. Actually, Obama governed like a “CENTRIST” REPUBLICAN!  He kept caving in to Republicans.  He failed to take positive actions within his power.  Instead, he promoted War and Wall Street.  Obama was a grossly inadequate president!   When Obama took office in January 2009, Democrats had majorities in both the House and the Senate. He could have done a lot if he had wanted to. The massive support from labor unions and non-profit organizations got him elected. They had some hot priorities. But Obama and the Democrats running […]

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 […]

How to achieve peace and true security

December 13, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

People keep worrying about “national security.”  But that is a dead end — and a misleading distraction — unless we understand that MILITARISM ITSELF IS THE PROBLEM and that our nation can be secure ONLY if we help the rest of the world to be secure in more profound ways than mere militarism can accomplish. See the insightful article I wrote at this link: Article on peace and true security            

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 […]

This article explains the story that right-wing extremists worldwide are telling — so they keep gaining power

November 5, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Near the beginning of this article it says this: The radical right has developed a global narrative that, by uniting virulent racists and commonplace conservatives, mass shooters and populist politicians, is already injecting fringe ideas into mainstream culture. A paragraph soon after says this: The radical right’s story is rooted in the most basic plot of all: us versus them. Its main nemesis is determined, so the tale goes, to storm the battlements of the “civilized world” and, in what’s called a “great replacement,” oust its innocent inhabitants. Soon after, it says this: The idea of “the great replacement” is […]

Why is “national security” defined ONLY in ways that assume MILITARISM?

October 26, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

The term “national security” is almost always ASSUMED to imply the need for more militarism, more fear of people in other countries, more willingness to fight wars, more military weapons, more military spending, and more nuclear weapons. That is a VERY NARROW channeling of our vision and our thinking. Really, our nation is NOT SECURE in many other ways.  Our nation is NOT SECURE when: Many people are poor Many people are homeless Many people lack decent health care Many people feel alienated from society Many people are very angry Many people own guns that endanger themselves, their families and […]

Chris Hedges wrote about “The Age of Radical Evil”

Chris Hedges keeps writing articles that are powerfully insightful and wise. His articles connect the dots across a number of issues. They are very much worth reading. Here is one from October 2019: https://www.truthdig.com/articles/the-age-of-radical-evil/          

Impeach Trump for MANY, MANY reasons beyond Ukraine! Protect the Constitution and the Rule of Law!

October 26, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

While mainstream Democrats and mainstream media focus on Trump’s blatantly impeachable offenses regarding his extortion against Ukraine, they are overlooking MANY, MANY OTHER impeachable offenses.  The House ABSOLUTELY MUST include those in its Articles of Impeachment!  Otherwise the Democrats are giving Trump a free ride — “complete exoneration,” as Trump might say — for Trump’s MANY, MANY OTHER impeachable offenses. I encourage you to watch my September 2019 TV program about impeaching Trump and/or reading the thorough summary I typed about what my guests and I said during the TV interview.  The video interview and the thorough summary are available […]
