Who’s Afraid Of The “S” Word

Well the media for one. They must be for the MSM is always making sure that the word is used liberally in the political reporting……all centrist Dems will spread the lie with a broad knife.

Then there are those old white guys on the Right.

They will even get some of the cowardly Blue Dogs to write op-eds all about their plight at the hands of socialism…..in other words the media as well as the DNC are afraid of the coming political storm……

Plus any time a new “Proposed” plan is announced by anyone other than some cowardly centrist Dem they get pundits to step up and call it “socialism”…….another reason most Americans are stupid when it comes to political thought.

Congress, The House, for another is worried about the Left….they have just formed a damn silly “anti-Socialism Caucus”…a waste of time and resources……but here we go…..

Republican politicians have form an anti-socialism caucus in congress, a member of the House of Representatives has announced.

“Just received approval from the House for the formation of the Anti-Socialism Caucus,” Chris Stewart, a Republican politician representing Utah, said on Wednesday.

“This caucus will defend individual liberty & free markets and highlight the dark history of socialism.”

Progressive activists were quick to criticise the formation of the caucus, which some compared to the infamous Un-American Activities Committee, a House investigative body which was formed in 1938.

It became notorious for a series of hearings held in the 1950s, investigating left-wing politics and communism in the US.

Smells like history repeating itself……who will get the nickname “Tailgunner”?

Beyond that does anyone know what socialism is?  Of course not to these morons it is just a word to insight fear…nothing else.  These so-called Blue Dog Dems are nothing more than the weapon corporate America will use to preserve their obscene profits.

Most of these explanations are really non-explanatory. Whether written as a list or in a more discursive form, they are little more than descriptions of some social democratic order, usually in a Northern European country such as Sweden. Their “explanations,” in other words, are not explanatory, they do not go beyond portraying how, for example, health care, education, public transport and similar institutions work in these countries, mostly as state organizations. Political theorists who have contributed to discussions of socialism have avoided its philosophical grounds and instead given an account of its history and, depending on their own political views, its successes or failure.

Most of these non-explanatory articles draw on familiar tropes in the American political imaginary about socialism, describing it, for example, as a form of redistributionism through state institutions to undo inequalities. Or, they define socialism as public ownership of the means of wealth. However, the state, as the agency of equality, and collective ownership of the means of production are only instruments of socialism. They do not explain its underlying philosophy. To understand socialism, one has to go beyond descriptions of its agencies and engage its philosophical principles.

What is Socialism?

Or if you would prefer what I had to say about this……https://lobotero.com/2011/11/10/american-socialism-a-history-lesson/

Not to worry……the Dems will find some well meaning liar to make their case for them……with tales of sacrifice and want…..

The problem is when the polls are taken the policies that these douches hate are the policies the American people want……let me say that again….it is what the people want……(do you understand that concept?)

“Socialism,” snarled Donald Trump at a recent pep rally of far-right Republicans. And the obedient crowd of faithful Trumpistas snarled back in unison: “So-shull-izz-ummm!”

And there you have the entire intellectual content of the GOP’s 2020 re-election strategy under Generalissimo Trump—slap Democrats silly with a scurrilous campaign branding them as Lenin-Trotsky-Stalin reincarnate. It’s not just Trump hissing out the socialist label in a frantic McCarthyesque attempt to make it stick by mindless repetition, but also Mike Pence, cabinet officials, Republican lawmakers, right-wing pundits and, of course, the extremist choreographers of Fox News.

Their incessant babbling has already turned clownish, with many babblers bumbling over their own ignorance and making ridiculous attempts to overplay their weak hands. Texas Sen. John Cornyn, for example, compared Democrats who support ideas such as “Medicare for All” to Mussolini. Apparently, Cornyn is unaware that the brutish Italian dictator was no socialist, but a fascist! Mussolini’s ideology of ultranationalism, promotion of masculine authoritarianism, domination of society by big business and the wealthy and suppression of democratic rights is the opposite of the Democratic agenda. Indeed, it describes the policies of—guess who—Trump and his acolytes, including Cornyn!

I have watched MSNBC and shook my head at the “Red Scare” of the 1950s has returned…..please stop it!  Talk about issues not try to protect your paymasters……MSNBC MoJo….has said “it matters not if you are progressive or conservative it matters that you have a message”…what crap for as soon as their is a message Joe starts screaming “Socialism”…….

I find Donald Trump reprehensible as a human being, but a socialist candidate is more dangerous to this company, country, as far as the strength and well-being of the country, than Donald Trump.  I would vote for Donald Trump, a despicable human being…I will be so distraught to the point that that could even come out of my mouth, if we have a socialist [Democratic presidential candidate or president] because that will take our country so down, and we are not Denmark.  I love Denmark, but that’s not who we are. And if you love who we are and all the great things that still have to have binders put on the side. Please step away from the socialism.

“Please Step Away from the Socialism”:  The Red Scare Dems at MSNBC

The MSM spend so much time on bullshit and not enough on policies is why we get morons like Donald Trump…..

It is sad that the people depend on lies and bullshit to pick their candidates….ask who these “pundits” really owe their livelihood to and you have who they serve and the voter is just a group to try and impress.

A closing thought……

Four in 10 Americans think socialism is a good thing for the United States, a shift in attitude that reflects the modern 21st century political landscape and changing social mores. 

Results from a Gallup poll released Monday show that 43 percent of U.S. adults polled from April 17-30 think socialism is a “good thing.” It’s likely not a coincidence that rise in popularity across all Americans came as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), both of whom identify as democratic socialists, became two of the most prominent  politicians in the U.S. 

The 43 percent number is a jump in approval of socialism by 18 percent since a poll by Roper 1942, the historical date used by Gallupfor reference to show the country’s evolving views. 

https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/05/22/four-10-americans-believe-socialism-good-thing-gallup

Something written a decade ago and not much has changed…….https://lobotero.com/2009/04/10/many-americans-prefer-socialism/

And yet this is not a story for the MSM…..another indication who pays their salaries…and it is not to report the news.

The media could not slow Bernie down with lies and constant socialism insults……so now they have changed their direction……now they say that Trump will wind handily…..(that may be true….but they are trying to decided the voter who to vote for…..a centrist)

Another historical note….the society we know today was shaped by the “S” word.

From single-payer health care to climate change, the 2020 Democrats have ambitious plans. But these new, grand, and green deals aren’t as radical as some make them sound. In fact, big public projects are what made America great.

When President Dwight “Ike” Eisenhower took office in 1953, America had been buffeted by the Great Depression of the 1930s and World War II in the 1940s. The Cold War put us in competition with Soviet “5-Year Plans” and Chinese “Great Leaps Forward.”

Eisenhower was concerned that soldiers would return home to closing factories. So Ike pushed for massive infrastructure spending, creating the “Dwight D. Eisenhower System of Interstate and Defense Highways.”

Congress funded a half-century of highway construction, building 47,000 miles—the biggest public works project in the history of the world. It cost $500 billion in today’s dollars, with 90 percent coming from Washington and 10 percent from the states.

The interstate highways transformed America.

I know that no one these days wants to hear the facts…..but socialism helped make this country the great place it is today.

“Lego Ergo Scribo”

And The Winner Will Be

As we draw ever close to the official start of the voting process…there are a few points that I wish to make…..

It is of little secret that I think the MSM is not a source for viable information only what the corporate overlords wants us to know……that is why we get mind numbing celeb news while the world is set for a blaze of epic proportions.

Then there is our elections when we decide who will represent us on the world stage….and the MSM has their finger on the scale there as well.

First it is their, the media, constant lie about the “electability ” of the candidate……more on that to save space……https://lobotero.com/2019/07/16/electability-the-lie-that-keeps-on-giving/

The MSM has convincing the country that Biden is the man to beat as far as the Dem races go…..they are predicting the winner before any of the primaries and caucuses have begun.

Biden’s electability rests on the assumption that Democrats will rally around whomever their party’s nominee is in their desperation to beat Trump, but only the former vice president is capable of winning over most independents and peeling enough Republicans away from Trump to ensure he loses reelection. If this sounds like the same type of pandering to white, middle-aged voters that centrist Democrats love to trot out every election to justify their insipid reformist policies, it is precisely that.

Let’s Stop Trying to Predict Who Can Beat Trump

Next is the DNC and the DCCC…..these political groups are doing all they can to appear democratic while deciding for the voter who their candidates will be….look at the next debate…..they made the rules to make damn sure centrists/corporatists are the majority of the party’s representatives…..and the move toward total control…..

This first became evident in March when DCCC Chair Cheri Bustos announced a “blacklist” policy, which sought to stifle the people-powered democratic process by requiring political consultants to sign a loyalty pledge to incumbent Democrats. Recent comments from black and Latino lawmakers about a lack of diversity in senior leadership, as well as complaints about a tone-deaf approach to issues relating to race, show that the DCCC continues to refuse to evolve and change. Instead, there seems to be an implicit policy of silencing new voices and sidelining historically marginalized communities in order to protect the power of the status quo.

https://www.commondreams.org/views/2019/08/16/dccc-out-step-democratic-values

The DNC/DCCC is out of step and the media is doing all they can to help these groups retain their influence over voters.

Personally, I have NEVER let another group pick my candidate for me…..neither should you…..especially when a loyalty pledge is required.  I refuse to allow a poll of 250 people tell me who to vote for….neither should you.

Democrats have excellent ideas….but they SUCK at the game of politics.

Micheal Moore see the final as I do……

Progressive filmmaker Michael Moore is predicting that the 2020 presidential election will result in Donald Trump winning a second term if Democrats nominate a “centrist, moderate” candidate, telling Democracy Now! that the president’s base is “more rabid” than in 2016 during a Thursday interview.

Moore, famous for films like Bowling for Columbine and, most recently, the Trump-focused documentary Fahrenheit 11/9, said the main “problem” Democrats are facing in 2020 is the fact that Trump’s voters have maintained their ardent support three years after he defeated Hillary Clinton.

The documentarian claimed that Trump would win “if the election were held today,” before noting that the electoral college system is the chief issue for Democrats: “Hillary won by 3 million popular votes. I believe whoever the Democrat is next year is going to win by 4 to 5 million popular votes. There’s no question in my mind that people who stayed home, who sat on the bench, they’re going to pour out … there’s going to be a much higher percentage of people voting against him.”

Would A Censure Be Better?

Paper #4

We now await the process to continue in the saga of the impeachment of a president….,the process is waiting to be given to the Senate for their part of the impeachment process…the Trial……

The games being played along partisan lines is just a waste of time for the “trial” will not be a impartial one….I say that because of what the Majority leader has said and the chairman of the Senate judiciary Committee, Sen Graham….they have made it clear that they will not be an impartial jury.

Praise be!  Looks like the partisanship in DC holds……the political center will fail…..and the broken system and process will remain badly broken…..and the president will survive the trial in the Senate and Trump will retain the seat of power.

I have tried to give my reader all the information I could about the impeachment process….the evidence, the analysis, etc.

https://lobotero.com/2019/12/19/the-house-on-impeachment/

https://lobotero.com/2019/12/20/impeached-now-what/

https://lobotero.com/2020/01/07/that-senate-impeachment-trial/

Personally, I think the GOP did all they could to obfuscate the process…..and there is what I see….the GOP has nothing to bitch about but the process…I keep waiting for one of them to talk or rant or bitch or moan about the evidence….so far I got nothing but theatrics.

Not to worry….the Dems are just as much a coward as the GOP…..especially those so-called moderates…..

Progressive Democrats in Congress directed contempt at several of their centrist colleagues for holding a meeting Monday where they discussed censuring President Donald Trump for his alleged attempt to bribe the Ukrainian government rather than impeaching him.

According to Politico, the conservative Democrats attending the meeting included Reps. Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.), Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), Anthony Brindisi (D-N.Y.), and Ben McAdams (D-Utah.), who represent districts that Trump won in 2016. 

Progressive Democrats offered little sympathy to the members, who are potentially vulnerable in their 2020 re-election campaigns.

https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/12/11/exactly-why-some-people-hate-democrats-progressives-rip-moderates-proposal-censure

Censure?

Believe it or not censure is not something new.  The so-called liberal group MoveOn.org was a censure move for Clinton called “Censure and move on” during his impeachment process….and the group has been a Clintonian mover and shaker ever since.

But a censure?  What the Hell does that mean?

It is less severe than expulsion, a censure (sometimes referred to as condemnation or denouncement) does not remove a senator from office. It is a formal statement of disapproval, however, that can have a powerful psychological effect on a member and his/her relationships in the Senate. In 1834, the Senate censured President Andrew Jackson – the first and only time the Senate censured a president. 

Censure is a formal disapproval that can be adopted by one, or both chambers of Congress. Unlike impeachment, censure is not a power provided by the Constitution, said Gregory Magarian, a professor of law at Washington University in St. Louis. The House and Senate have adopted internal rules that allow them to draft and approve a censure resolution, which provides a public record disapproving of an official’s actions. Such a resolution is a rebuke, but does not carry any material punishment like removal from office.

https://www.pbs.org/newshour/politics/what-does-it-mean-to-censure-a-politician

But there is a bit of a problem with a censure…..many know the word but not many know what it is in reality….https://historynewsnetwork.org/article/166736

Back to me.

Censure?  NO go full tilt boogie or go home.

Do I want Trump impeached?

Yes I do.

Truth be told (something that is sadly missing in this process) I kinda hope that the president walks on the Senate side.

Yes I said I want him cleared by the Senate in case you were confused.

Yes, I want him to remain in office and doing what is doing.

Why?

I want the Dems to learn from their time against the GOP……the later is far better at politics and dirty deeds than the former.

Dems need to learn and learn the lesson hard.

What Is Wrong With The GOP?

As I listen to the babble around the impeachment I am reminded that this is NOT the GOP of 15 years ago….they seem to have given up ideas that were big and sweeping…..they are NOTHING like the GOP of say 1956/

All this leads one to ask….what has happened to the GOP?

New York Times reported that viewership of those “boring” hearings was proving to be “as big as Monday Night Football.” That was the week when the world heard from, among others, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman on Donald Trump’s July 25th “perfect” phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky; from ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland on how “everyone was in the loop” when it came to the Ukrainian quid pro quo (not to speak of his “Zelensky loves your ass” exchange with the president); and from the steely former Trump adviser on Russia, Fiona Hill, on how that country promulgated the fiction that Ukraine had interfered in the 2016 American election.

That should have been enough to convince anyone paying attention that the president had indeed attempted to trade a Zelensky White House visit and U.S. military aid for an announcement that Ukraine was investigating its own (fictitious) interference in that election and the (equally fictitious) corruption of Joe Biden via his son Hunter. Clearly, however, the Republicans in Congress were anything but convinced.

https://www.commondreams.org/views/2019/12/05/whats-wrong-republicans

I have not supported the GOP in past election but at least they held to some beliefs that I could appreciate if not support….but these days the GOP seem to hold conspiracy theories and BS as their rallying points for the base…and the base sucks it up…..

How do the horrific events of Charlottesville, the shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, and a similar hate crime in California directly relate to the eye-rolling pronouncements by Devin Nunes, Rudy Giuliani, and other Republicans in defense of President Donald Trump?

The answer can be found in the Republican id, where a toxic brew of conspiracy theory, urban legend, photoshopping, and comment-board trollery self-organize into an alternate reality. While this alt-reality has only burst into wider public view during the Trump presidency, like the monstrous space alien exploding out of the bodies of the infected scientists in John Carpenter’s The Thing, I was in a position to observe its germination, more than two decades ago.

It is therefore refreshing that finally, a former national security council employee, Fiona Hill, has given widely publicized testimony to the House intelligence committee decisively exposing as a lie one of the linchpins of the conspiratorial Republican world view—the assertion that it was Ukraine, not Russia, behind disruption of the 2016 election. Previously, the media had sporadically raised the conspiracy theory, disjointedly explained it, and weakly dismissed it, allowing it to hang like an incubus in the air for the credulous to half believe.

Antiwar Has Its Supporters

You all know that I am an antiwar person and have been since 1971….in those days we had a movement that did all they could to stop an unjust war….those days are gone….long gone. Americans seem to accept continuous war and the lack of a shared experience with the troops that fight these wars.

But wait!

First what do all these people have in common?

Andy Biggs of Arizona, Mo Brooks of Alabama, Warren Davidson of Ohio, Matt Gaetz of Florida, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Trey Hollingsworth of Indiana, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Mark Meadows of North Carolina, Alex Mooney of West Virginia, and Bill Posey of Florida.

They are all in the House of Representatives….they are all Republicans….and they are all antiwar (for now)…..and after the antiwar I have very little in common with them.

Believe it or not…the GOP,  at least part of it, has become the voice of antiwar in the Congress.

comparative case study has demonstrated that only one political party has a principled (albeit small) contingent of legislators who care more about ending U.S. intervention overseas than partisan positioning.

In February, the House of Representatives voted in favor of House Joint Resolution 37, which directed “the removal of United States Armed Forces from hostilities in the Republic of Yemen that have not been authorized by Congress.” This, along with its complementary senate vote, was the first congressional invocation of the War Powers Act in the law’s history.

Then last month, the House voted in favor of House Joint Resolution 77, a resolution condemning “the decision to end certain United States efforts to prevent Turkish military operations against Syrian Kurdish forces in Northeast Syria.” This vote was in opposition to President Donald Trump’s announced withdrawal from the Syrian-Turkish border.

The Small But Brave Cadre of Conservative Anti-War Republicans

I did not believe my eyes but there it is……but I think their antiwar sentiments are just a political game and not some concern for the troops and our station in the world.

If I could would I ever vote for any on the list?

Probably not….for most are Tea Party toadies and I never liked the politics of the Tea Party.

Antiwar is just one issue that I care about and my candidate needs to tick off a couple of boxes before my vote goes down.

So far this election season only has one truly antiwar candidate….but they may not be long for the campaign trail for the MSM is doing all they can to make sure her campaign is killed in the court of public opinion……sadly it is the party that is doing the most damage with the help of the MSM.

The Real Constitutional Crisis

#2 In A Series

To help my reader keep up begin with Part One……https://lobotero.com/2019/11/25/thoughts-on-impeachment-and-the-trial/

As the House portion of this drama draws to a close we hear daily that we are in a Constitutional crisis….on that point I agree for we have a leader that thumbs his nose at the Constitution……

Yes I said “Thumbs” and in a wealth of ways……just a few of the ways he is in violation of the document……

Violation of Constitution on Domestic Emoluments; Violation of Constitution on Foreign Emoluments; Incitement of Violence; Interference With Voting Rights; Discrimination Based On Religion; Illegal War; Illegal Threat of Nuclear War; Abuse of Pardon Power; Obstruction of Justice; Politicizing Prosecutions; Failure to Reasonably Prepare for or Respond to Hurricanes Harvey and Maria; Separating Children and Infants from Families; Illegally Attempting to Influence an Election Tax Fraud and Public Misrepresentation; Assaulting Freedom of the Press; Supporting a Coup in Venezuela; Unconstitutional Declaration of Emergency; Instructing Border Patrol to Violate the Law; Refusal to Comply With Subpoenas; Declaration of Emergency Without Basis In Order to Violate the Will of Congress; Illegal Proliferation of Nuclear Technology; Illegally Removing the United States from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty.

I know a few in that list is a bit of a stretch but it all comes down to interpretation

The Constitution itself is the crisis that we keep hearing about in the MSM and from those pundits with an agenda……

To no small degree, “our” (their) archaic Constitution is the constitutional crisis. It helped hatched the Trumpenstein and it is helping keep it in office perhaps for five or, God help us, more years. The way to get rid of this terrible tyrant is through a mass and prolonged popular rebellion that includes among its demands the call for a new national charter, one that includes among its provisions (just for starters) the abolition of anti-democratic absurdities like the Electoral College, the disenfranchisements of Puerto Rico and Washington DC, the provision of two Senators to each state regardless of its population size, the lifetime appointment of Supreme Court Justices, and the eviction of private money from public elections. The whole damn system that spat up/shat out Malignant Orange is guilty as Hell. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote not long before his death, “the real issue to be faced” beyond superficial matters is “the radical reconstruction of society itself.”

The Real Constitutional Crisis: The Constitution

Then we have those that say “not to worry this to shall pass”…..I say WRONG!

Even a former GOP Representative Justin Amash has made his thoughts known….

Independent Rep. Justin Amash said on Wednesday that U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland’s testimony to House Intelligence Committee hearing on impeachment was the latest evidence against President Donald Trump that—if Trump was a regular person facing a grand jury—would result in certain indictment.

Amash, who left the Republican party in July 2019 over Trump’s behavior and the refusal of GOP leaders to hold him accountable, pointed out on Twitter that “impeachment in the House is an indictment.”

“If this were an ordinary prosecution, there’s no grand jury in America that would not return an indictment on the facts and evidence presented in these hearings,” said Amash.

https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/11/20/ex-republican-justin-amash-says-theres-not-jury-country-wouldnt-indict-trump-based

One conservative (politician) with a spine does not a party make…..PERIOD!

The Trump presidency has changed everything and we will have a long journey back to normalcy…..if ever.

Apparently an oath given before God (if you believe that sort of thing) does not matter……..

Before you toadies go on the attack maybe it would help to refresh your memory (if you have one) of what the Constitution is all about…..

Dems Run To The Center

That is the lie from the MSM……that this country is a center left or center right country…..I disagree and I have written about this lie extensively….

And then my favorite lie from the MSM….”electability”……

https://lobotero.com/2019/07/16/electability-the-lie-that-keeps-on-giving/

I bring all this up because we are in the throes of another election to pick a Dem nominee then the president and the media is doing all they can to elect Joe Biden….they give a whiff of not being biased by focusing on the front runners but with caveats…..

The media has its darling, Joe Biden, a ‘moderate’ that is in the same vane that lost twice and yet they are embracing and pushing a return to the past…..

Clinton lost in 2016 mainly because she ran a poor campaign. In retrospect, though, in view of all the nefarious things she stood for and all the political currents she embodied, it was bound to be tough going for her even with an opponent as preposterous as the one she had.

Democrats ought to take that lesson to heart. But Democrats will be Democrats and so many of them are hellbent instead on doing just the opposite.

Their moderation has become so extreme that Clinton, along with some of her unreconstructed supporters, have lately been floating feelers about her running again. Seriously!

Worse by far – not just because it is far more likely to happen — leading Democrats and their toadies on the cable news networks are still pushing the idea that only Joe Biden, the doddering dufus himself, can guarantee a Trump defeat.

First Lose All the Moderates

Personally I do not think that centrists/moderates/ whatever we want to call the spineless in the party will not win the White House in 2020……

I keep hearing that the Democratic primary is coming down to someone who’s “electable” versus someone who has “ideas.”

This is pure nonsense. Beating Donald Trump requires getting out the vote. And in order to get people to turn out and vote, a presidential candidate has to be inspiring. Which means big ideas, a vision of an America that could become a reality if we all got behind it, a sense of where we need to be heading.

Don’t be fooled. This primary is not a contest between someone who’s electable and someone who has big ideas. Big ideas are essential in order to be electable.
