Who declares war in this country?

...Presidents do...

...it looks like we not only have to rebuild our economic system, we also have to rebuild out governmental system too...

...everyone's frightened to death and wrings their hands at the thought of Democratic Socialists taking control of our government and economy...

...well folks, this endless global economic, environmental and governmental mess we find ourselves today is solely brought to you by CAPITALISTS, CAPITALISM and their GREED...

...are you cringing at more CAPITALIST WAR?

...me too...

Warren Questions Timing...

HuffPost, 1-5-2020

" Elizabeth Warren Questions Timing Of Soleimani Killing Amid Trump’s Impeachment "

“We heard that it was for an imminent attack, then we heard, no no, it was to prevent any kind of future attack, then we heard from the vice president himself that it was related to 9/11,” she said.

" Warren added that Trump has a record of making decisions as president that favor his own political agenda, citing the pressure he put on Ukraine’s president last summer to open an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden as an example. Trump’s communications with the Ukrainian president led to his impeachment in the House in late December. With his Senate impeachment trial looming, Warren said it’s reasonable to question whether Trump’s decision to kill Soleimani now was meant as a distraction. "

...so, what do we know?...at the moment, not much...

...one thing's for certain, Trump is a notorious liar...

...Republicans need to control their loose-cannon President before it's too late...

...

Killing Soleimani...

...might have been a temporary military tactic and will distract from impeachment, but what's our long term strategy in the Middle East?...more endless wars?...war with Iran?...more unauthorized wars by Congress?

Bernie is unambiguous,

Daily Beast, 1-3-2020

" “I’m going to do everything I can to prevent a war with Iran, because if you think the war in Iraq was a disaster, my guess is that war in Iran would be even worse... So let’s work together and prevent that war, and if people want to criticize me for that, go for it, that’s OK, I don’t apologize to anybody.” "

...so where do we stand...I read Joe's statement on the killing of Soleimani and outside of the warning I didn't see much call to resist...

...in 2002, Joe voted for the war in Iraq, Bernie voted against the war in Iraq...

...how these two candidates respond to trump's call to war will make a huge difference...

...




Where's Chief Justice Roberts?

...I'll admit, all I know about government is from my high school civics class many years ago...

...but wouldn't the Senate be Chief Justice Roberts court?

...wouldn't he be the presiding judge?

...doesn't he have a say in the rules and how his court will be run?

...what does the Constitution lay out for Chief Justice Roberts role in an impeachment trial?

...where is Chief Justice Roberts in all of this?

...with the pukes or the Constitution?...

A few good Republicans?

...there are probably a few good Republicans, maybe even enough to convict...but they are afraid...

...afraid for themselves and their family...afraid trump will get on TV and encourage his followers to do harm to any Republican that defects or has defected...organized crime at the highest levels...I expect zero Republican defections in the Senate and a trump acquittal...

...so where does that leave us?...obviously with a new set of rules and country...

...do we accept the Russian/trump rigged landslide victory in 2020?

...I'm starting to believe it really doesn't matter who we nominate; the 2020 election results are preordained...

...I didn't think a handful of fascists could ever take over a Party, the Presidency then destroy our democracy...

...we need to kick this around and think about where we are going and what we should do...

...don't blame Nancy and impeachment if this goes south for us...she did what was right...she did what she had to do...she tried to save our democracy...that's more than what many other so-called politicians have done...

...so, on impeachment eve, think about it...

On Social Security?

...I think trump's cheating us...

" U.S. Inflation Rate, $1 in 2018 to 2019

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics consumer price index, today's prices in 2019 are 2.43% higher than average prices since 2018. The U.S. dollar experienced an average inflation rate of 2.05% in the last 12 months. This means the real value of a dollar has been decreasing recently. "

" The latest COLA is 1.6 percent for Social Security benefits and SSI payments.Social Security benefits will increase by 1.6 percent beginning with the December2019 benefits, which are payable in January 2020. Federal SSI payment levelswill also increase by 1.6 percent effective for payments made for January 2020. "

...these people are shameless...chumping us on our SS and SSI pittance has got to be a sin...

...republicans are evil, they must be punished...

Are Republicans out to steal the 2020 election?

...or are Democrats out to get Trump?...who's attacking whom and why?

...a quick look on U-Tube finds many examples of Trump and Republicans blasting Democrats with unfounded lies and innuendo...why?















...and that's not including the unprecedented attacks on Democrats during the House Intelligent and Judiciary Impeachment Hearings by Republicans...and the attacks continue,

...Republicans claim Democrats are motivated solely to over turn the results of 2016 election, are out after Trump yet Republicans appear to be positioning themselves to steal the 2020 election by attacking Democrats with untruths and lies...

...by attacking Democrats and concerned Americans who have legitimate Constitutional issues with Trump and Republicans corrupting elections, are Republicans really trying to mask their attempts to steal the 2020 election (with foreign help)?

...I would have to say, yes...

Those who took an oath...

...to defend the Constitution need to step up now and defend the Constitution...

...trump is being impeached because he broke the law trying to rig and steal the 2020 election as he and the Russian did in 2016...

...today they appear to be coordinating,

...at the same time, republicans are trying to castrate the FBI so they won't be able investigate trump and republican future crimes...

...in the era of trump we live in, truth and facts have very little weight...by the time truth and facts catch up with reality, the crime is gone replaced with more republican lies, innuendo and crime...time to defend the integrity of the 2020 election is getting short...

...I'm worried...

...IF, trump is acquitted and republicans steal the 2020 election, what should we do?


......

Lavrov and Trump to meet tomorrow...

https://www.cnn.com/2019/12/09/politics/donald-trump-sergei-lavrov-meeting/index.html


...to discuss____________________________________?


...hmmm,

...what to do next about impeachment?

...

What do you think of Republicans?

...I was watching the Judiciary Committee hearing today and I almost got sick...

...on a scale from 1 to 10, 1 meaning wrong but decent people, 10 meaning low-life satanic scum, what number best describes your opinion of Republicans?

...I give them a solid 10...
