My response to Morning Edition 1-11-21

I was listening to the Morning Edition interview with two members of the so-called Problem Solvers Caucus - the two interviewees being U.S. Reps Dean Phillips and Dusty Johnson. I turned it off immediately, when in response to Rachel Martin's question about whether the president needed to be removed from office, Dusty Johnson opined that the "president does have some culpability..." for recent violence at the capitol. Culpability!? I'm fatigued and frustrated listening to mealy mouthed apologists for Trump. The man is clearly a menace, as are craven republican representatives who are being deliberately obtuse regarding Trump's seditious incitement to insurrection. Moreover, the preposterous Problem Solvers Caucus is simply a fig leaf under the banner of "bipartisanship" - simply a fantasy given nearly universal republican resistance to any policy that doesn't benefit the 1/10 of 1%. The violence at the capitol was no less than a coup against the government in an attempt overturn a fairly decided election. Don't be fooled by the bumpkins. They're merely muddle-headed foot soldiers for an already radicalized movement within the republican party. You know it and I know it. Please do not insult your listenership by giving air time to disingenuous political hacks that are trying to normalize this disgusting and treasonous behavior. NPR management needs to grow a pair.

How a Chinese Communist Party promoter tied to Cindy Yang joined the Trump campaign

Lou is a United States-based promoter for the Chinese Communist Party and former writer for Chinese media, a job he got after graduating from Columbia Graduate School of Journalism in 1994.

He is also an avid Trump supporter.

Last year, the Chinese-born American citizen took his support to a new level. Lou signed a contract with the Republican National Committee to become an official fundraiser for President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign — at the same time Trump was launching a bellicose trade war against Lou’s homeland. Trump recently vowed that communism’s “days are numbered,” excoriating any Democrat who dared espouse any hint of sympathy toward socialism.

...

Out of this marriage of supply and demand emerged a tacitly Chinese state-endorsed gray market selling tickets to Trump-related events to Chinese business people. It’s where Lou’s life overlapped with that of Li “Cindy” Yang — founder of a chain of South Florida Asian day spas, whose latest start-up involved selling presidential access over Chinese-language social media.
