Myanmar’s coup — much info before and after — and insights into other issues

June 13, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

On February 1, 2021, the military of Myanmar (previously known as Burma) overthrew democracy and installed an extremely brutal military dictatorship.  The population has been protesting against that, so the military has been using extreme violence to suppress the resistance.  Most of the public’s resistance has been nonviolent, but — out of frustration — some people have been resorting to violence. Of course, this nation had been colonized by a European nation, so that background plays into the current crisis.  The nation exists in the context of other nations in that region.  Mainstream news media in the U.S. have been […]

New info on Trump’s attempt to hurt immigrants in the 2020 census

May 27, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Evidence of Trump’s cruelty keeps popping up. This just came up about Trump’s attempt to deliberately undercount undocumented immigrants in the 2020 census. That would not only weaken their political presence, but it would also hurt the communities where they live. The U.S. Constitution REQUIRES an ACCURATE census of ALL persons living in the U.S.  Trump’s perversion is unconstitutional. See this:  https://campaignlegal.org/update/clc-reveals-internal-trump-administration-strategies-exclude-immigrants-census   Now here is an irony:  Ironically, Trump’s inaccurate census might have actually hurt Republicans. See this:  https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2021/4/29/2028069/-Many-are-wondering-if-Trump-botched-the-Census-It-would-be-perfectly-on-brand?detail=emaildkre

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 […]
