https://www.thenation.com/article/video-voter-suppression-rigged-film/

This movie was fantastic!! Extremely well researched and concise, it clearly and patiently explains how the few and powerful interests in the USA, Inc. used the morally bankrupt Republican Party and the guileless and bystanding Democratic Party to effectively subvert the voting process.

Republicans aren’t only anti-Democrat. They are also anti-democracy. As Paul Krugman wrote the GOP is authoritarianism in waiting.

Republican leadership facing internal revolt from GOP female lawmakers as party turns back into a boys’ club: report

https://www.rawstory.com/2018/12/republican-leadership-facing-internal-revolt-gop-female-lawmakers-party-turns-back-boys-club-report/

From everything that I’ve read these Republican women aren’t concerned about actually helping women or advancing women’s causes that all women should be concerned with regardless of party affiliation. Instead the Republican women speaking out about this issue are merely disagreeing with these white male supremacist over campaign tactics and ways to lure/con women into voting for more Republicans. That’s it. Another example of how it’s only about winning at all costs for Republicans. Forget about the common good.

Ministers interrupt Sessions, are removed from religious freedom conference

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/ministers-interrupt-sessions-are-removed-religious-freedom-conference-n925981

Whew! Boy oh boy! You can’t put it any more plainly than that. This article really spells it all out; Republicans, Donald Trump, conservatism (I’m expanding here, myself) they are all antithetical, actually hostile in word and deed to the teachings of Jesus Christ. They defame Jesus Christ every time they invoke the church, the word of God, their own farcical convictions. It is a travesty. Anyone with an inkling of faith in Jesus Christ would renounce the Republican Party for what it is, was, and is shaping up to be. Cast it aside along with those who would ride on its coattails such as our illustriously goldflaked doofus-in-chief, Herr Drumpf, Donald J. Trump.

Trump calls U.S.-bound migrant caravan a national emergency, says will cut aid | Article [AMP] | Reuters

https://mobile-reuters-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKCN1MW1QM

What a massive failure to understand what is happening. These people have so little left to lose that they are willing to risk their lives and the lives of their children, to throw themselves under the pitiful mercy of the brutal nation that is the United States of America in hopes of securing a better life for themselves.

The USA looks a whole lot different on the outside than it does on the inside, folks.

Sure, of course there are some things that happen in the USA that are NOT savage and inhumane. We all know that (from the endless movies and TV shows and sitcoms and magazines and stories and books and lectures and history books and textbooks…). But that is not worth talking about right now. Because that is not what is killing people and ruining lives and preventing human progress. The things that are actually causing dire consequences at this moment is what we should be focusing on not how pretty we were last year at the beach.
