Trump says he is “absolutely immune” from criminal investigation!

November 16, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Democrats’ timidity in failing to impeach Trump for many, many impeachable offenses has convinced Trump that HE IS ABOVE THE LAW! Asking Supreme Court to Shield His Tax Returns, Trump Claims He Is ‘Absolutely Immune’ From Criminal Investigation “It’s absolutely shocking the lengths Donald Trump will go to to shield himself from accountability.” https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/11/15/asking-supreme-court-shield-his-tax-returns-trump-claims-he-absolutely-immune?cd-origin=rss&utm_term=AO&utm_campaign=Weekly%20Newsletter&utm_content=email&utm_source=Weekly%20Newsletter&utm_medium=Email   I remember when the Republican Party used to claim to be the party of “law and order.”    

The Democratic Party is so clueless that it is REBUFFING its political base and could unwittingly RE-ELECT Trump!

November 16, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

The institutional Democratic Party has a long history of seeking donations and votes from the working class, environmentalists, and progressives — but when elected — nearly all Democrats rebuff the Party’s political base and instead are subservient to Wall Street and the Military-Industrial Complex. This happens over and over again.  It happened with Obama (see below).  It happened with Hillary Clinton (who failed to inspire the base and was more conservative than Trump on several issues), and it is happening again now.  The Democratic Party keeps rejecting progressives (Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren) and keeps trying to cram corporate war-hawks […]

Trump is using OUR TAX DOLLARS to fund Venezuela’s opposition politicians!

November 5, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

When you hear news about Venezuela, remember that Venezuela has a lot of oil — and that its democracy is constitutionally legitimate. Trump keeps trying to overthrow Venezuela’s democracy.  Do not let Trump overthrow Venezuela’s government. People who care about peace and democracy should be outraged by yet one more abuse by Trump that was reported in mid-October 2019. Trump is using OUR TAX DOLLARS to fund Venezuela’s opposition politicians! On October 17, 2019, CodePink (www.codepink.org) reported this: “Our taxpayer money is being used to pay the salaries of Venezuelan politicians! USAID (the United States Agency for International Development) announced […]

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 […]

Trump is waging a new war for oil in northern Syria. Sign petition to Congress.

November 5, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

See this article:  https://www.juancole.com/2019/10/province-kurdish-displacement.html       Sign petition to tell Congress:  Deploying troops in Syria to “protect oil” is unconstitutional. On October 24, 2019, Just Foreign Policy (www.justforeignpolicy.org) sent this information.  See the end for a link to click so you can sign the petition to Congress. President Trump now claims that his “justification” for keeping U.S. troops at the al-Tanf base in southern Syria – where they will be protecting zero Kurdish civilians, who live in northern Syria – is to “protect oil.” This is unconstitutional, because Congress never authorized it. Under Article I of the Constitution and […]

Nuclear weapons in Turkey are a stupid idea: Remove the U.S.’s nukes. Don’t let Erdogan build his own.

November 5, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Many, many different factions are fighting each other in Syria.  The U.S. is funding several of the factions that are fighting each other.  The U.S. should not participate in the complex civil war.  But Trump made a serious mistake by moving U.S. military troops from one area where they were fighting with the Kurds against a common enemy, so they could fight in a different part of Syria in order to protect somebody’s oil. Trump keeps screwing the U.S.’s allies and helping brutal autocrats.  Trump’s Syria decisions helped Russia’s Putin and Turkey’s Erdogan. For many decades the U.S. has stationed […]

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 […]

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 […]

Trump’s new war for oil in northern Syria

October 26, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Trump keeps screwing up. Trump keeps deceiving people. Everything he does is only for his own benefit. He fooled some people into thinking he was withdrawing troops from Syria as a matter of a principled peace policy.  Actually, he was screwing our allies in his “America First” isolationism — except that he is really abusing our foreign and military policies in order to help his pals Erdogan (the brutal authoritarian who runs Turkey) and Putin (’nuff said!) and in order to pursue a war for oil in Northern Syria. See this:  https://www.juancole.com/2019/10/province-kurdish-displacement.html   No, Trump Isn’t Bringing US Troops Home […]

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 […]
