89. There's just one problem with leaving it to the 2020 election.

And it starts with the letter “R”.

And I DON’T mean “republi-CONS”.

It’s the RUSSIANS.

I’m concerned that to assume we can just “vote him out in 2020” is a bit naive. Because our elections are where the Russians are now firmly embedded. And since they figured out how, who knows who else by now has also weaseled their way in, as well?

And NOTHING has been done to stop it. The CONS have made sure of that. Because they know they’re in the numerical minority. There aren’t as many republi-CONS out there to win a clean and clear majority. They don’t have the NUMBERS. WE do. There are more Democrats than there are republi-CONS.

Princeton University professor Eddie Glaude stated the truth yesterday on MSNBC:
“If you can’t win by the numbers, what do you do? Rig it!” Followed by “people cheat. And I think we need to understand - people cheat.”

When I heard that, I hurried to write it down. It was the first time I can think of, in which somebody, somewhere on TV, actually stayed flat-out what I’ve believed at least since bush/cheney (although learning about the way Reagan cheated to win, when his people went over to Iran in the fall of 2000 to coax the Iranians to keep holding the American hostages til Reagan got a secure win) to deny Jimmy Carter that accomplishment that HE’D been working so hard to achieve).

It was gratifying to see SOME talking head, Somebody/ANYBODY actually say that, flat-out. On camera. With mic open. And on live. First time. I think he was guesting on Nicolle Wallace’s show, just before they switched to yesterday’s live news conference by the four women of “The Squad.”
