Did Trump Break The Law With His First Tweet As President?uscgcpo

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 15:22:38 +0000

Day 73. I  know you all remember the hoopla about Hillary Clinton’s private email server.  And, I am sure you all remember how Donald Trump said she should be “locked up” for deleting some of her emails.  There have been what seems like hundreds of Congressional investigations into this matter, and Mr. Unethical Chaffetz says […](image)

Woman’s March Is The Medicine Our Country Needsuscgcpo

Day 72. Today we saw just what a mass demonstration can look like.  In all 50 states and over 600 cities and towns, literally millions of people marched in protest.  The great thing about this protest was that it was started by a retired lawyer in Hawaii.  She tweeted the night of the election that […](image)

On Day One We See That Actions Speak Louder Than Wordsuscgcpo

Sat, 21 Jan 2017 03:24:37 +0000

We heard what was probably the most bleak, dark, and nonsensical rambling of an inauguration speech I have ever heard.  That was without doubt terrible.  It shows that Donald Trump cannot give a good speech to save his life. This speech was terrible.  He stood on that stage as the least popular president-elect in history.  […](image)

Authoritarian Autocrats Get Their Wish Today – Its Time For Us To Be Ready To Fight Backuscgcpo

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 16:32:21 +0000

Day 71. Today Donald John Trump will place his hand on a bible and take the oath of office to become our next president.  And, for the first time, I am beginning to lose my optimism for the future of our country. To be totally honest, if I were a Christian, I would wonder if […](image)

You Will Need Wading Boots To Walk On Pennsylvania Avenue During A Trump Presidencyuscgcpo

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 16:07:49 +0000

Day 70 We are now seeing just why Republicans have been so worried about having ethics watchdogs hanging over their heads.  Now, I am fully aware that there are some Democrats who follow the same lack of ethics in office, but it is the Republicans who are trying to do away with the ethics groups in […](image)

DeVos Is Totally Unqualified To Become Secretary of Educationuscgcpo

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 17:10:27 +0000

Day 69. Last night there was a confirmation hearing for Betsy DeVos to become the next Secretary of Education.  From what I heard, she is totally unqualified to fill the post.  And, I am not even talking about her conflicts that need to be cleared up first. To begin with, she has absolutely no experience […](image)

Further Attacks On Liberty And Freedom By The Incoming Administrationuscgcpo

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 15:28:11 +0000

Day 68. We are beginning to see who is the next target in Trump’s attempt to establish his authoritarian government.  And, of course, it is the free press.  If you want to establish an authoritarian government you must control the media.  If you can’t control it, you simply set up a propaganda arm of the […](image)

Conflict of Interest and Corruption Have Many Faces In A Trump Administrationuscgcpo

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 16:14:00 +0000

Day 67. We are looking at having the most corrupt administration in our nation’s history.  I don’t make that accusation lightly.  However, the facts are beginning to show that is a real possibility. First we have a president-elect that doesn’t think any conflicts of interests are a bad thing as long as he is the […](image)

The Affordable Care Act Vs. Obamacareuscgcpo

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 04:12:51 +0000

Day 65 With both the Senate and the House taking the first steps to repeal the Affordable Care Act, there seems to be a real problem differentiating between the Affordable Care Act and Obamacare.  The only problem is there is no difference between the two. I offer as proof this.  Someone I have known all […](image)

We Are Headed To A Government Of Reprisaluscgcpo

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 15:19:46 +0000

Day 64. You have probably read a lot of articles about how to establish an authoritarian government since Trump was elected.  I haven’t read any of them, because I already know history.  One thing I can tell you is that the best way to establish an authoritarian government is to threaten reprisals against anyone who […](image)
