    Lindsay Graham’s conscience died and was buried along with his friend and mentor, John McCain, with whom I disagreed on many, many issues but who had least had moral consistency.

    Trump ignorance on full display regarding California wildfires. He blamed poor forest management, meaning he was either ignorant of the fact that 60% of California forests are federally managed, 33% are in private hands, and only 7% are state managed, or was — surprise! surprise! — lying about it.

    Trump apparently did not realized that California INCREASED state funding of forest management, while his administration slashed federal funding for same by billions.

    Trump apparently is ignorant of (or lying about) the fact that California is a net DONOR state — from our Democratic prosperity, we pay more in federal taxes to Washington than benefits received, because we have to subsidize the welfare queens of the failed red states whose economic policies have resulted in abject failure.

    And let’s not even get into the complex interplay of real causes, including climate change, site selection in construction, overpopulation spilling into high-risk areas not suitable for construction, etc.

    We need a Constitutional amendment that prohibits any state or local jurisdiction from allowing any special tax breaks to billionaires and very wealthy individuals in exchange for selecting them as locations to do business. Let them compete on cultural, social and natural economic conditions, not on “pay to play” corporate welfare and billionaire extortion.

    It was African American women who got Doug Jones elected in Alabama. It was African American women who forced a runoff for the senate seat in Mississippi. Many of the close elections have been decided by African American women. And there is one party, and one party only, that has now elected more women of color, including African American, Native American, Latino American and Asian American women to the House and, yes, even the Senate.

    For decades, it was said that Democrats took minorities for granted. Asked for their support, but never put them in office.

    The last few elections have made it very, very clear that these failures of the past are no longer the reality of the present.

    Women, minorities, those with disabilities, those from the LGBTQ community, even very young candidates, and EVERYONE, has a role in the Democratic party — not just to vote, but to hold positions of leadership.

    Rick Scott — massive anti-consumer fraud on a scale matched only by Trump himself, with a strong effort by Matt Whittaker (illegal, unconstitutional FAKE “acting attorney general” who is under investigation by the FBI for criminal fraud in his investment scam, and now poised to head the agency that is investigating him).

    I’m sensing a theme here…

    And as for voter fraud, seriously, does any rational human being believe that, in a state where every election official is under the control of RepubliCONs, that it is the DEMOCRATS, who have ZERO power in the process, who are the ones committing election fraud.

    It passes neither the smell test nor the laugh test.

    I am holding my nose, but I am not laughing.

    And if the Florida (and Georgia) elections, which are 100% run by RepubliCONs, are once again allowed to be stolen by corrupt electoral thugs, both by preventing lawful voters from voting (voter suppression) or by refusing to count all lawful ballots cast, we will continue to see the same CONservative class warfare against working people continue.

    And seriously, since Comrade TRUMPski McPutinpuppet, Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis have all called for halting of counting ballots, and many of those late arrivals are MILITARY BALLOTS FROM THOSE IN COMBAT ZONES, none of these FAKE PATRIOTS can ever again claim to support our troops.

    Of course, we already knew Comrade Bone Spurs was as phony as his hair, when he refused to visit an American gravesite in France (blamed it on Marine One not being able to fly in a light drizzle — really? — when a top aide who was there admitted it was because he was afraid rain would ruin his comb-over) or cross the Potomac to visit Arlington National Cemetery on Veteran’s Day.

    Chicken Hawks like Trump, Hannity, Limbaugh and so many more support wars of aggression as long as they can send others to die in their place — billionaires willing to sacrifice the sons and daughters of working people on the blood-stained altar of corporate profits for “defense contractors” and oil companies of the military-industrial complex Eisenhower warned us about.

    Yes, if we elected presidents by actually having the person who gets the most votes win, or even if there had been an honest election in Florida (both in terms of allowing all legally-entitled voters to vote AND counting all the votes honestly), Al Gore would be the winner.

    If Al Gore had taken his rightful place after winning the 2000 election, he would have inherited the successful Clinton budget surpluses and fiscally responsible economic policies.

    Gore would have listened to the specific terror warnings and likely prevented 9/11 but, if the terror event had occurred, would have deployed surgical, target police action rather than a full-blown war, and certainly wouldn’t have let Osama escape when he was cornered at Tora Bora. No Afghanistan war.

    Gore would never have invaded Iraq, the WRONG COUNTRY, that had no WMD and was successfully neutered by Clinton’s successful no-fly zone policy of targeted containment.

    No corporate welfare, tax cuts for the few richest elites, lax regulatory oversight of Wall Street and financial markets, or Bush economic collapse and steadily worsening employment stats.

    No Samuel Alito or John Roberts on the Supreme Court; no Citizens United or no overturning the Voting Rights Act or none the absurd rulings that overturned reasonable gun safety laws.

    No Donald Rumsfeld or Dick Cheney diverting funds from invading the wrong country for the profit of their oil cronies and “defense contractors” of the military-industrial complex that Eisenhower warned us about, who profiteer off the deaths and suffering of our brave heroes and, when they return, cast them on the trash heap of neglect.

    And do I even need to mention the difference in environmental, climate and energy policies between two Texas Oilmen (Bush and “The Dick” Cheney) compared to the author of Earth in the Balance written way back when he was still a Senator, before he was even vice president, who made that his signature issue?

    Trump spews hate speech and violent right-wing extremist terrorists respond. Hate crimes up significantly since racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobic “fake president” was installed in the White House by a hostile foreign adversary.

    Not all Trump supporters are racists or terrorists.

    But virtually all racists and right-wing terrorists are Trump supporters, and those who are not have to deal with the reality that they are on the same side as the racists and right-wing terrorists.

    Democrats got almost TEN MILLION more votes for Senate than Republicans, yet lost a couple of seats. (Where Democrats won they won by large margins in large states while Republicans won squeakers in more but smaller states.)

    Democrats won the popular vote for House by a bigger margin than the Republican “shellacking” of 2010 when the Republicans picked up 63 seats, but the Democrats pick up much fewer, ±37 seats, because of gerrymandering.

    The Democrats have won the popular vote for president four out of the last five elections but only took office in the two where they not only got the most votes but outright majorities.

    The problem is not that the American people don’t vote for PROgressives; the problem is that our “elections” are rigged.

    Democrats had more “popular vote” (or as they call it in the rest of the world, “the vote”) for President, Senate and House but are not allowed to control any of them.

    Presidency: For the second time in 16 years (two out of the last five elections), the person with the most popular votes did not win the Presidency because of an antiquated system invented to protect slave holders in smaller population states. African Americans were not the moral equivalent of 3/5 of a European American, and a California voter is not the moral equivalent of 1/4 a Wyoming voter. We have won four out of the five last presidential elections but only allowed to serve two of those terms.

    Senate: The Senate stays Republican, even though there were more votes for Democratic senate candidates (because the senate is weighted in favor of rural, small population states and because of which subset of seats was up for reelection). This applies to both before and after the recent midterm elections. However, in 2020, the electoral math will be reversed, with RepubliCONs defending the most swing states and having to run with a wildly unpopular demagogue in the White House who leads by subtraction instead of addition.

    House: The House stayed Republican in 2016, even though there were more votes for Democratic house candidates (because of gerrymandering), but even that was not enough for them to continue their electoral abuse in 2018.

    Supreme Court: as of the end of 2018, four out of nine Supreme Court justices will have been appointed by “presidents” who came into office with fewer votes than their opponent.

    No, I do not respect or accept the legitimacy of a government in which every elected branch is now controlled by the party that got fewer votes in all of them.

    It is no longer “we the people,” but “we the oligarchs, plutocrats and corporate special interests.”
