Nearly all Americans are “deniers” of the nuclear weapons crisis.

July 5, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Most Americans recognize that the climate crisis is VERY SERIOUS. We disagree with the “climate deniers” and with the “Coronavirus deniers.” But another existential crisis is VERY SERIOUS too:  Nuclear weapons can kill us all in just a few minutes.  Trump and both political parties in Congress are recklessly provoking and escalating a new nuclear arms race.  They are weakening the restraints against nuclear war. Most Americans are “DENIERS” that this crisis is happening.  Their negligence is even more deadly than the “climate deniers” and “Coronavirus deniers.” Mainstream news media are complicit in horribly failing to publicize the realities. Decent […]

Locally and nationwide, we must CHANGE THE POLITICAL CULTURE. Sign up for these practical workshops.

June 15, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Governments are the LAST to figure things out. (Mainstream news media are the next-to-last.) They will do what we want ONLY WHEN a strong nonviolent grassroots movement forces them to do what is needed. Recent history has proved this a number of times. (In the 1960s Congress passed civil rights legislation only because the Civil Rights Movement forced them to. President Obama opposed LGBTQ rights to marriage until the grassroots movement forced him to support equal rights. The list goes on and on.) Our local community includes a number of people who want to protect the environment – and protect […]

Hot news about Trump’s scam about Hydroxychloroquine

May 19, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Trump has been VIGOROUSLY promoting Hydroxycholoroquine  REPEATEDLY in his official presidential TV broadcasts. Recently it was reported that Trump owns part of a company that makes the snake oil medicine he has been VIGOROUSLY promoting. He was using his power as President of the U.S. to make presidential briefings on nationwide TV networks about the Coronavirus pandemic that is devastating our nation.  But — instead of providing truthful information — he turned these nationwide broadcasts into “INFO-MERCIALS” in which Trump (a notorious liar and pitch-man for his many fraudulent business scams) promoted what could be called a “snake oil: medicine made […]

Trump acts like a neo-fascist dictator. Here are a few articles from April and early May 2020.

May 13, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Everybody knows the old story about putting a frog in water and warming it slowly enough that the frog won’t notice the change from one moment to the next, so it won’t jump out of the water, but after a while the frog has been cooked to death. That familiar story seems to pertain to the U.S. under Trump and his loyal supporters in the Executive Branch and Congress.  Here are some alarming stories about what Trump and Trumpism are doing to our nation:   How Trump is turning the American presidency into a dictatorship: https://thefulcrum.us/balance-of-power/donald-trump-dictator   The U.S. is […]

Presidential candidates AND members of Congress MUST take the climate crisis seriously!

February 7, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Elected officials and candidates like to create the image that they care about important issues (such as the climate crisis), but many of them are NOT SINCERE and are “slippery” and have conflicts of interest.  Voters and the media MUST HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE.     A great many of the persons Trump has appointed to positions of enormous power over the environment, energy, etc., have very severe conflicts of interest.  I will post a different item to my blog with examples of those horrible corruptions of our government.     Members of Congress own up to $93 MILLION in fossil […]

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 […]

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 […]

Trump keeps attacking science. We must PROTECT HONEST SCIENCE from Trump and Trumpism!

But among policymakers, acceptance is on the decline. That’s the dismal conclusion of a new peer-reviewed study in Environmental Research Communications published on Thursday. Between 2010 and 2017, Washington policymakers became less supportive of the science behind climate change. What’s […]

Media bias INTERFERES WITH solving the climate crisis

November 9, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

The Establishment (fossil fuel companies, big business, the “consumer culture,” economic elites, and BOTH of the big political parties) caused the climate crisis. Mainstream (corporate-owned) media — as always — played along as the mouthpiece for the corrupt Establishment. In order to solve the climate crisis, ORDINARY PEOPLE MUST PUSH BACK against big business, against government, and against mainstream media.   Weather reports — and news reports about extreme weather — keep assuming that extreme weather is merely an “act of God” and ALMOST NEVER mention that decades of fossil fuel pollution and climate disruption have caused it. Even Seattle’s […]

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 […]

Facebook supports right-wing extremism, hate groups, etc.

November 5, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

The National Whistleblower Center (www.whistleblowers.org) reported in May 2019 — and updated its report in September 2019 — that Facebook “was not only hosting terror and hate content, but in fact auto-generating its own.”  A whistleblower provided information that you can see here:  https://apnews.com/f97c24dab4f34bd0b48b36f2988952a4?eType=EmailBlastContent&eId=39a0cee3-f401-4489-b49a-d930eb9bc78e The National Whistleblower Center wrote, “The whistleblower filed a complaint with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in January 2019 alleging Facebook has repeatedly deceived shareholders and the public about its efforts to address terror and hate speech on its social media platform. By doing so, the whistleblower claims Facebook is violating securities laws that prohibit […]
