Click LINKS to urge removing Trump by impeachment and/or the 25th Amendment

January 9, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Please share this powerful resource with your friends, family members, e-mail lists, etc. Time is short!  We must immediately demand Congress and others take strong actions now!   Basic Information: Like other presidents, Trump took this Oath of Office in January 2017: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Many, many times throughout the past four years, Trump has violated it.  The worst violations occurred a few days ago when […]

Sign the petition: Impeach Trump for trying to steal the election.

January 6, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

This information and petition came out on Tues. Jan. 5, 2021: Donald Trump was just caught on tape trying to overturn the result of the 2020 election. We cannot let him get away with it. On Saturday Trump called Georgia’s Secretary of State and, according to an audio recording of the call obtained by the Washington Post, Trump asked him to find enough votes to overturn Biden’s win and hand Georgia to Trump.1 “I just want to find 11,780 votes,” Trump demanded. Congress cannot let Trump get away with this brazen attempt to destroy our democracy. Sign the petition: Tell […]

Sign the petition: Trump has broken the law. He must be investigated and charged.

January 6, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

I signed a petition saying Trump has broken the law. He must be investigated and charged. Please consider signing.  See the link after this informative paragraph: Donald Trump was caught on tape trying to rig a presidential election. In the audio, published by The Washington Post, Trump repeatedly pressured Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to declare that Trump had won more votes in the state than Biden. And he urged Georgia officials to ‘find’ enough votes (11,780) to overturn the outcome. Not only is this a blatant and disgusting attack on American democracy, this is ILLEGAL! Enacted and established […]

Trump profits hugely from playing golf on his properties

January 6, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

When Trump goes to his properties (Mar a Lago, etc.) to play golf, the taxpayers pay to fly Air Force One, and the taxpayers PAY TRUMP to house and feed his huge entourage of Secret Service officers, presidential staffers, etc., to stay in his overpriced hotels and eat overpriced meals there.  Trump rips off the taxpayers VERY OFTEN for this purpose.  The Constitution prohibits this:  The “emoluments” clause EXPLICITLY PROHIBITS using presidential power for personal enrichment, but the House Democrats REFUSED to impeach Trump for this blatantly unconstitutional crime.   Washington Post confirms that Trump has charged the US a […]

URGENT!!! Sign the petition: Remove Trump from office now!!!

January 6, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Trump has been provoking his cult members to VIOLENTLY PREVENT A PEACEFUL TRANSITION to President Biden — and to VIOLENTLY REPLACE THE CONSTITUTION WITH MOB RULE by Trump’s domestic terrorists. A violent mob of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol this afternoon in a desperate attempt to stop Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 presidential election. Gunshots have been fired, law enforcement have found at least one explosive device and the National Guard is being deployed right now. The situation on the ground is chaotic and deadly serious. This is a predictable consequence of Donald Trump’s ongoing attempt […]

Now We Empower Ourselves to Achieve Bold Goals

December 30, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

The January 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV program will help YOU make progress on the issues YOU care about. Many of our nation’s problems had existed for a very long time.  These include racial injustice, economic inequality, environmental problems, a foreign policy that is both cruel and violent, and some dysfunctional aspects of our electoral systems.  From 2017 through 2020, Trump made these and other problems even worse.  Really, this goes beyond partisanship.  Many of our nation’s problems are long-standing and bi-partisan.  The American people have values that are better, wiser, more compassionate, and more progressive than either of […]

Besides Protesting What We Oppose, Let’s Organize Even More Vigorously to Accomplish Positive Goals

December 28, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

We need to keep protesting against the cruelty, corruption, injustice and violence that continually assault us.  But if we spend most of our time and efforts fighting the bad stuff, the oppressors will continue to have the upper hand because they can keep throwing bad stuff at us and we will always be on the defensive. We need to spend most of our time and efforts taking the initiative to organize for the positive goals that we want instead.  We need to be proactive, envision the future we want instead of the current mess, and organize to achieve the positive […]
