The Games Being Played While The Nation Suffers

Let me begin by pointing out the 51 Senators that voted against paid sick leave….

COWARDS!

In case you missed it…….”Senate Republicans are using the COVID-19 pandemic to cut corporate taxes again and stop you from getting paid sick leave.”

Heartless,” “cruel,” and “appalling” were just some of the adjectives progressive critics and analysts used late Thursday to describe the Senate GOP’s newly unveiled trillion-dollar economic stimulus package which—by design—would completely deny direct cash payments to the poorest Americans while cutting taxes for corporations, dishing out tens of billions in bailout funds to major industries, and restricting paid leave benefits that were just signed into law this week.

“The Senate GOP package is an utter disgrace,” tweeted Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO. “It gives free money to corporations, ignores the health crisis, and does nothing to keep people working or help the unemployed. The labor movement will oppose this Main St. bailout of Wall St. with everything we have.”

These cowards ought to be shamed everywhere….they are using this emergency to try and make their donors more wealthy….and make NO mistake….anyone that sided with these toads is a COWARD!

Something that I have covered before……profit taking (senators) and price gouging (Big Pharma)…..

As the number of global COVID-19 cases soared past 254,000 and the death toll topped 10,000 on Friday, concerns persisted—particularly in the United States—about healthcare costs related to the ongoing outbreak, limited testing and protective medical supplies, and how corporations may try to cash in on the public health crisis.

The Intercept‘s Naomi Klein, author of the 2007 book The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, warned earlier this week in a video about “coronavirus capitalism” that the U.S. and other governments are “exploiting” the COVID-19 pandemic “to push for no-strings-attached corporate bailouts and regulatory rollbacks.”

One final note……I feel that this response by the president is still getting everything all wrong…..

Donald Trump has consistently been failing the country in dealing with the coronavirus. Due to Trump’s failed public health response, even Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin acknowledges that we are facing the worst economic collapse since the Great Depression. This is in addition to the prospect of tens of millions of people getting the coronavirus and hundreds of thousands, or even millions, dying.

It is encouraging that the Trump administration is now taking steps to respond to the economic damage, but from what has been disclosed, its plan is poorly designed. First and foremost, we have heard no discussion of the federal government taking a direct role in providing the resources needed to deal with the crisis.

This would mean, for example, having the Army Corps of Engineers establish emergency hospital facilities to house the large number of patients needing care. It would also mean increasing the supply of ventilators and other medical equipment, with the government prepared to work directly with factories here and elsewhere to remove obstacles to ramping up production. Apparently, Trump has told the governors to find such equipment on their own.

https://www.commondreams.org/views/2020/03/19/trump-stimulus-plan-still-getting-everything-wrong

This illustrates just how ill-prepared the government is to deal with this pandemic and it also shows just how unimportant the people are to the Senate.

Americans deserve better than they are getting from these slugs.

Let’s not leave the slugs in the corporations out of the fray……many businesses are starting to beg the government to bail them out…..and yet some CEOs are getting bonuses……you heard that right!

While us peasants have to tighten our belts too survive….CEOs are still getting their massive perks.

Goldman Sachs gave CEO David Solomon a 20% raise to a head-spinning  $27.5 million in assets and cash for his work last year, the company revealed.

The news comes as the Trump administration weighs massive industry bailouts amid the coronavirus crisis — and triggers memories of the Wall Street bailout, which included $10 billion for Goldman Sachs.

Solomon’s compensation for 2019 includes $2 million in salary, more than $15 million in stock and a $7.7 million cash bonus, the company reported Friday.

Former company CEO Lloyd Blankfein took in a record $41 million in compensation in 2008. (Blackfein said last month that he might vote for Donald Trump if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) became the Democratic presidential nominee.) Solomon is the second-highest paid CEO in company history.

I have NO use for these d/bags……there should be NO bailout until these a/holes put some skin in the game…..after all they can write off any losses on their taxes……these should be prepared that is what they tell us mere mortals all the time….I say SCREW them let them go the way of the Dodo….maybe then we will get businesses that are truly part of the society.

Time for a change!

Update:  Remember that plan for cash?  Well it is being held up by the very people that have made massive stock trades just before this pandemic hit….

Negotiations between Congress and the White House teetered Sunday over a nearly $2 trillion economic rescue package as the coronavirus crisis deepened, per the AP. As President Trump took to the podium in the White House briefing room and promised to help Americans who feel afraid and isolated as the pandemic spreads, the Senate voted against advancing the rescue package. But negotiations continued on Capitol Hill. At the otherwise emptied out Capitol, the draft aid bill was declared insufficient by Democrats, who argued it was tilted toward corporations and did too little to help workers and health care providers. The setback sent Republicans back to the negotiating table. “Americans don’t need to see us haggling endlessly,” warned Senate Majority Leader McConnell on the Senate floor. He sought passage of the package by Monday.

But Democrats say the largely GOP-led effort does not go far enough to provide health care and unemployment aid for Americans, and fails to put restraints on a proposed $500 billion “slush fund” for corporations. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said the draft package “significantly cut back our hospitals, our cities, our states, our medical workers and so many others needed in this crisis.” The package would include relief checks to Americans, possibly two separate ones for a total of $2,000. Trump predicted the two sides would reach agreement soon. “To me it’s not very complicated: We have to help the worker. We have to save the companies,” Trump said. “We’re enduring a great national trial and we will prove that we can meet the moment. We’re at war.”

More games being played with citizen’s lives.

An inept president…..and a bunch of cowards in Congress…..can this government get any more pathetic?  The answer is YES!

Closing Thought–05Dec19

We hear daily by Trump sycophants…my bad….supporters tell the country and the world that the Dems have nothing on their minds but the impeachment of this president…..in my opinion he needs to go for he thinks he is above the law and that flies into the face of everything this country stands for…..

According to the GOP the Dems have done nothing this session but demand and frame the president …..well if that is true…..then you are listening to bullshit.

There’s a pervasive sense of legislative paralysis gripping Capitol Hill. And it’s been there long before the impeachment inquiry began.

For months, President Donald Trump has fired off tweet missives accusing House Democrats of “getting nothing done in Congress,” and being consumed with impeachment.

Trump may want to look to the Republican-controlled Senate instead. Democrats in the House have been passing bills at a rapid clip; as of November 15, the House has passed nearly 400 bills, not including resolutions. But the House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee estimates 80 percent of those bill have hit a snag in the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is prioritizing confirming judges over passing bills.

Congress has passed just 70 bills into law this year. Granted, it still has one more year in its term, but the number pales in comparison to recent past sessions of Congress, which typically see 300-500 bills passed in two years (and that is even a diminished number from the 700-800 bills passed in the 1970s and 1980s).

https://www.vox.com/2019/11/29/20977735/how-many-bills-passed-house-democrats-trump

Apparently we do NOT pay these elected officials to do the hard work of government but rather we pay them to suck up to a dictator and pervert the process of justice.

Again not my idea of a proper government that was suppose to be all about “by the people, for the people”……we have become a cancerous society that needs to make its mind…do we let lawless assholes run the country or do we take back the government that belongs to us…not Citibank or Putin or anyone else.

“Lego Ergo Scribo”

How Could This Be?

That is the question so many people and pundits alike are asking about the state of our democracy…..so many reasons and so little time to correct the discrepancies…..

I guess we can blame the Dems or the GOP or the nation as a whole or fear or a wealth of other reasons but to me there is only one reason…..

Ever heard of the Telecommunications Act of 1996?

Of course you have not…..for it is too mundane for your attention as long as Swamp People is renewed to care.

President Bill Clinton signed the Telecommunications Act of 1996. The act, signed into law on February 8, 1996, was “essentially bought and paid for by corporate media lobbies,” as Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) described it, and radically “opened the floodgates on mergers.”

The negative impact of the law cannot be overstated. The law, which was the first major reform of telecommunications policy since 1934, according to media scholar Robert McChesney, “is widely considered to be one of the three or four most important federal laws of this generation.” The act dramatically reduced important Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations on cross ownership, and allowed giant corporations to buy up thousands of media outlets across the country, increasing their monopoly on the flow of information in the United States and around the world.

“Never have so many been held incommunicado by so few,” said Eduardo Galeano, the Latin American journalist, in response to the act.

Democracy in Peril: Twenty Years of Media Consolidation Under the Telecommunications Act

To me all this division has been fed by the corporate media to drive the news cycle to what they want the reports to be.

But do not take my word for it….this is the summary offered by the Clinton White House of what the act contains….

…this legislation will lead all Americans into a more prosperous future by preparing our economy for the 21st Century and opening wide the door to the Information Age.

Universal Service

The President and Vice President want to ensure that all Americans have access to the benefits of the information superhighway. The Act ensures that schools, libraries, hospitals and clinics have access to advanced telecommunications services, and calls for them to be connected to the information superhighway by the year 2000. It will help connect every school child in every classroom in America to the information superhighway — opening up worlds of knowledge and opportunities in rural and low-income areas.

The V-Chip

Because President Clinton and Vice President Gore believe strongly that families should be able to exercise control over how the media influences their children, the Act includes a provision calling for a computer chip, called the V-Chip, to be installed in every new television set. This provision is critical to give parents control of the television programming that comes into their homes by allowing them to block electronically violent or other objectional material.

Media Ownership

Because President Clinton and Vice President Gore believe that diversity of voices and viewpoints is critical to our democracy, the Act will prevent undue concentration of television and radio ownership. The Act limits the number of stations one entity can own to stations that reach up to 35 percent of all national TV viewers, and keeps existing rules that forbid one

company from owning two TV stations in a local market, or a newspaper and TV station in the same market, or a newspaper and cable in the same market. The Act also maintains the ownership ban of a cable company and a broadcast company in the same market.

Phone Service

The President and Vice President believe that when the walls of regulations are brought down, prices come down for American consumers. This Act breaks down the Berlin Walls of regulation that previously kept local Bell Telephone companies and long-distance telephone companies from competing with one another, while keeping safeguards in place to ensure competition and serve the public interest.

Fancy words….that shows the ends that the MSM will go to own the news and the news cycle…..as well as making certain candidates proper for the American voter…

Is it any wonder that the nation’s “liberal” cable news stations CNN and MSNBC can barely contain their disdain for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign and even (to a lesser degree) for that of Elizabeth Warren while they promote the nauseating center-right candidacies of the bewildered racist and corporatist Joe Biden, the sinister neoliberal corporate-militarist Pete Butiggieg and even the marginal Wall Street “moderates” Amy Klobuchar and Kamala Harris? Next time you click on these stations, keep a pen and paper handy to write down the names of the corporations that pay for their broadcast content with big money commercial purchases.

And The Governed Lead

I wish it were so…..that the governed lead, that would be us the voter, but sadly it is a pipe dream with no footing in reality…..

What can we the governed have to look forward to between now and the 2020 election? An infrastructure plan? NO! Health care for Americans? NO! Equal pay perhaps? NO!

The truth is the we have NOTHING to look forward to for this country. NOTHING will get done…..NOTHING but theatrics, fantasy, obstruction and lies……all the things that we have come to look for from this president…..and the Congress.

2020….the Dems are as usual shooting themselves in the foot….23 candidates?  Seriously?

Do not believe the hype the politeness of the candidates there is NOTHING advantageous about 20+ candidates.

This is the first mistake.

The second is not having an adequate message, as usual…..their message is all over the place.

The older Dem Americans over 45 are all for Biden….they were the same for Hillary and look what that gave this country.  The media needs to STOP breaking it down to the minute numbers…I realize why they are doing this failed policy….they have lots of time per hour to fill and they will do so with all the speculation they can muster.

The MSM is pushing Biden hard and some are seeing him as the Bob Dole of the 21st century…….

The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate field seems to grow by the day, increasing the chances that someone unexpected could emerge from the pack.

But, at the moment, the most conventional candidate is ahead in the early polls. That would be former Vice President Joe Biden.

Historically speaking, though, there isn’t much recent precedent for someone like Biden to win the presidency, even if he does snag the party’s nomination, presidential biographer Jon Meacham Told NBC’s Chuck Todd on Sunday’s edition of Meet the Press. Meacham, who has written books about Franklin Roosevelt, Andrew Jackson, Thomas Jefferson, and George H.W. Bush, said that when looking at Democrats who have been elected to the Oval Office in the post-World War II era, most of them have been younger, more innovative forces.

Then there is the joke of party politics……the biggest voting group are independents….a cowards way out (my feeling only)…….

American Party politics would be a complete farce if the consequences weren’t so grave. Were either of the dominant Parties to achieve 100% consensus on any issue, it would represent the views of about 18%* of eligible voters. And while a diversity of views would represent social vitality in a functioning democracy, in the winner-take-all American system, it represents continued rule by the oligarchs.

https://www.counterpunch.org/2019/06/07/electoral-politics-versus-democracy/

Voters need to think back over the life of their voting……Biden is nothing about change…he will be the same as all other Dems in the past 50 years…..long on hot air and short on action and a warm embrace of corporate handlers.

Stop letting the media pick your candidate.

Be Smart!

The 51st State?

Closing Thought–08Apr19

This is a story that has been a long time in coming……the bill to make Puerto Rico our 51st state…..

A bipartisan group of lawmakers introduced legislation Thursday that would admit Puerto Rico into the union as the 51st state without a referendum on the island’s territorial status.

The bill was unveiled by Florida Rep. Darren Soto, a Democrat who represents parts of Orlando and its large Puerto Rican community, during a press conference in Washington attended by the island’s Gov. Ricardo Rosselló, a vocal supporter of Puerto Rican statehood. If enacted, the legislation would automatically trigger the island’s admission into the union, bypassing any referendum. 

“I’m exited about the possibility of finally ending this historic injustice. It’s time for all Puerto Ricans to be united behind a noble and Democratic effort,” Soto said alongside Rosselló, local Puerto Rican leaders and Reps. Ruben Gallego, Jamie Raskin, Don Young and Jenniffer González-Colón, the island’s non-voting delegate. “It’s time to let the old battle lines fade away. It’s time to end 120 years of colonialism.”

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/statehood-for-puerto-rico-lawmakers-to-introduce-bill-granting-puerto-rico-statehood-bypassing-any-referendum/

Will this come to reality?  If it does will Trump veto the bill?

I mean he does not seem to like or appreciate that Puerto Rico is part of the US territories…plus they speak Spanish and we know what he thinks of people that speak Spanish now don’t we?

His admin is trying to screw Puerto Rico out of disaster funds…..and as usual the president  the pillar of America is punching down in his insulting Twitter style…what a pathetic human.

Personally, I think it is a great idea and should have happened 50+ years ago when Hawaii and Alaska were added to the total.

Any thoughts?

Closing Thought–05Apr19

Trump’s “Mighty” Pen……

The stage is set for Trump to use his muscle and issue his second veto…..

The story so far……

After voting down a Republican motion to recommit, the House of Representatives voted on Thursday to pass S.J. Res 7, the Senate version of the War Powers Act challenge to US involvement in the war in Yemen. The vote was 247-175-1.

This Senate passed this resolution in March, and sends the resolution to President Trump, who has threatened to veto it. So far it appears unlikely that Congress will be able to override such a veto.

Both House votes on Yemen ran heavily along party lines. The War Powers Act requires any US war to be approved by Congress, and the resolution notes that Congress never authorized any such war in Yemen.

The administration has argued that the four years of war in Yemen technically don’t count under the War Powers Act, sometimes overtly lying about the extent of US involvement in Yemen, and other times arguing that support for the Saudi-led war is obligated because of arms sales to them.

Congress for the first time invoked the decades-old War Powers Resolution to try and stop a foreign conflict. “The president will have to face the reality that Congress is no longer going to ignore its constitutional obligations when it comes to foreign policy,” said Democratic Rep. Eliot Engel of New York, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. He said the humanitarian crisis in Yemen triggered by the war “demands moral leadership.”

The war is in its fifth year. Thousands of people have been killed and millions are on the brink of starvation. The United Nations has called the situation in Yemen the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. The top Republican on the committee, Rep. Michael McCaul of Texas, acknowledged the dire situation in Yemen for civilians, but he spoke out in opposition to the bill, saying it was an abuse of the War Powers Resolution. “This radical interpretation has implications far beyond Saudi Arabia,” McCaul said. He warned that the measure could “disrupt US security cooperation agreements with more than 100 counties.” Opposition to the Saudi-led war in Yemen gathered support last year in the aftermath of the death of US-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the hands of agents of the kingdom.

If true….can the Congress override a veto?

Do they, Congress, have the guts to do so?

Not One Vote!

The vote has been taken…..and by their voting on the issue seems that the GOP is with Trump and anti-democratic……

Not a single House Republican voted for sweeping Democratic legislation that would strengthen voting rights and reduce the influence of corporate money on the political process.

The “For the People Act” (H.R. 1) passed on Friday by 234-193 party-line vote. All 193 no votes were by Republicans. Four Republicans did not vote.

“Protecting our democracy shouldn’t be a partisan issue, but the Republican Party has decided it is unwilling to even consider reform despite virtually all Americans agreeing that our system is broken,” Morris Pearl, chair of the Patriotic Millionaires, said in a statement.

“Today’s vote on H.R. 1 is a monumental step forward for our country that will hopefully lead to the people retaking control of our government from special interests, lobbyists, and billionaire donors,” Pearl added. “It’s also a shameful reminder that Republicans are pursuing political power for the few over the fundamental values that this country was founded on.”

 
But the GOP need not worry….it will go to the Senate and as we all know the Senate is where good ideas go to DIE!

That “Radical” Green New Deal

To hear the GOP tell it the Dems Green New Deal is something out of the playbook of Stalin or some other “commie” despot……the problem is that not all Dems are on-board with the proposal and will join in the slandering of the plan with the GOP…..

…….calling the Left “antis” – people who are just against stuff but not for anything – is only one of the rhetorical mechanisms employed to slander and demean radicals and progressives.  Another set of false accusations come into play when progressive solutions see the light of day and threaten to garner significant popular support.  When that happens, it no longer suffices to say that the Left offers no alternatives. The slander shifts and portside activists and intellectuals are accused of calling for too much, not for too little.  They are charged with authoritarian, even totalitarian overreach. At the same time, Left proposals are smeared as “unrealistic,” “fantastic,” “pie-in-the sky,” “dreamy,” and the like.

As with the “no solution” slur, this different set of allegations come not just from Republicans but also and most dangerously from the reigning corporate and neoliberal wing of the Democratic Party, assigned the task of defining and policing the narrow leftmost boundaries of acceptable political and policy debate in the United States.

https://www.counterpunch.org/2019/02/25/slandering-the-not-so-radical-green-new-deal-a-bipartisan-operation/

Personally, there is nothing radical about the Green New Deal….most of it would be commonsense if it weren’t for stupid that has invaded the process and the science…..

But do not believe me….read an analysis for yourself……

https://www.counterpunch.org/2019/03/04/theres-nothing-radical-about-the-green-new-deal/

The idea is a noble one but by the time the neo-liberal twats in the DNC get through with it it will be a shadow of its previous self.

AS usual the GOP and its talking heads have attacked using the tired old meme from the 1950s……beware this is “socialism”…..well no it sounds more like an infrastructure bill than socialism….and did not this current president talk and promise something about a massive infrastructure plan?

Where is the plan from the GOP?  Once again they have NOTHING to offer but dragging the institutions of government down the toilet with their party.

And the problem will remain the same….as always…… problems in search of a solution.

Closing Thought–08Mar19–#2

The House has passed HR1…….and the peasants danced……

What is HR1?

https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/1/text

To expand Americans’ access to the ballot box, reduce the influence of big money in politics, and strengthen ethics rules for public servants, and for other purposes.

BREAKING: The House just passed HR1, which includes: -Automatic voter registration -Public financing of elections -An end to gerrymandering -Election Day as a federal holiday -Support for overturning Citizens United This is the greatest victory for democracy in generations.

Victory?

Is that not a bit premature?

After all it must go to the Senate….and as we all know…the Senate is where good ideas go to die a slow death.

Maybe the media should hold off on proclaiming this a blow for democracy just yet…….maybe wait to see just how bad the Senate can screw this bill up…….

Just A Thought.

At Least The Dems Try

The Dems control the House and they have set about trying to fix some of the problems created by the GOP House…..

Our many many many wars……some of the Dems have tried to fix that problem…..

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are the latest lawmakers to endorse the “End the Forever War” pledge being offered by veterans group Common Defense.

The open letter was issued just over a week ago by the group. Already eight lawmakers who have endorsed the plan, three senators and five members of the House of Representatives. They are predominantly progressives so far, including two presidential candidates in Sen. Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

The open letter describes the “Forever War” as the open-ended war that the US has been engaged in since 2001, and seeks pledges of lawmakers of all political stripes to reclaim Congress’ historical oversight of war and end the conflicts.

(antiwar.com)

Sadly this will go nowhere! The defense industry owns most of the House as well as the Senate and anything that would lessen their profit will be met with failure.

Then they also tackled the subject of net neutrality……

House and Senate Democrats on Wednesday introduced legislation that would fully restore net neutrality protections in a bid to rescue the open internet from corporate throttling, discrimination, and censorship.

“The Save the Internet Act is one of the few pieces of congressional legislation that actually does what it says in the title,” Evan Greer, deputy director of the advocacy group Fight for the Future, said in a statement. “The internet is going to come down like a political hammer on any lawmaker who fails to co-sponsor it.”

Again this will be met with stern opposition……the GOP rules the Senate and it will not make it past them if it were to possibly make in out of the House…..

I will give them a C+ for trying to do what is right and necessary….but that does not change the fact that this to shall fail.

The Senate where good ideas go to DIE!
