The pollical utterings have reached a crescendo of ignorance and stupidity. Begin with the “debate” which became largely a TOTUs name calling and insult show. Meanwhile the ignominious Senate and administration are so concerned about the country that they want to give the bare minimum of relief for the country as a whole. While the voters are going lacking for jobs, healthcare and financial relief, the Congress still receives their full pay checks and health care. I question the idea that elected officials are more important than the people who elected them. Now the GOP is railing against the “huge” over priced stimulus presented by now President Biden. Where were the whiners when an inept (former president) executed a 2 plus trillion tax reform which benefitted everyone except those who really need the relief. Voters of America we have a failure to communicate in that we have allowed the people we elect to do whatever they want and then try (with some success) to convince us that it is what we need. In all of last year the GOP lead by TOTUS and Bitch McConnell made no big moves to curb the pandemic but managed to get tested and shots when they were made available. Their counterparts in GOP led states and cities did not demand any assistance or make any moves to enforce mask wearing, social distancing or any other recommended actions to slow the spread and protect the voters. The former guy said nothing and continued to lie about everything except his name while being abetted by the neer do wells in Congress whose sole objective is to stay in power. It is well past time for the voters to realize that the current GOP is not on their side even if they express support for some of their issues

Why is it that the pro Trump faction that believes the election was stolen from TOTUS do not realize they are being deluded? Following a known liar and perhaps thief into the fray of delusionary thinking is more of a threat to them than the assumed illegitimacy of the recent election. The Constitution guarantees a right to a free and fair election not an overturning of a “perceived” stolen election. Pursuing an idea that the election is illegitimate by members of Congress is in itself a violation of your Constitutional voting rights. Following blindly behind your elected officials on an uninformed pursuit regarding unproven election fraud is against your own interests and is no ones fault but your own. The Greater GOP has continued the ongoing farce that the election was rigged in spite of the proven security of the election. The GOP is now preparing to play games with Senate and possibly House rules wherever they can. These changes are not in the interest of their constituents (voters) but more leaning towards the new “reconstructionist” agenda which promoted the segregationist agendas of the pre civil war era. Since many were directly unaware or unaffected by these agendas, they have a hard time believing the facts as presented to them. It is your constitutional right to vote as you see fit but not to be manipulated by political factions that present false information to alter that vote. The political class are no better than the “dictatorial” class in other countries except “We The People” have the power to elect who we want in office but only if we use our intelligence when doing so. The shout of “Constitutional Rights” is meaningless if you’ve never bothered to read or understand them. Those rights are broad and narrow at the same time so are subject to interpretation much like the Bible. Your Constitutional rights do not cover the right to prevent someone from voting, living where they want or pursuing the happiness guaranteed by the Constitution. Your Constitutional rights do cover who you want to represent you through your voting rights. Intelligent use of your Constitutional rights is the best weapon we have to get good governance. Do not be mislead by FAUX news talking heads such as Newt Gingrich, Tucker Carlson and Mr. Hannity whose main objective is ratings at any cost (the cost of your right to correct and true information).

Only in America can on have the right to speak out against injustice, government overreach (or under reach). The one right we should not have is the right to follow an inept leader into the jaws of death and despair. TOTUS has spent 4 valuable years (ours) promoting himself and his poor policies using “dog whistles” and racial slurs. It is unfortunate that too many citizens have fallen for the old “it’s them not us” theme. It would be wise to recall that as citizens we condoned slavery while relying on those enslaved to help us make progress. The current resident of the White House has no knowledge of government beyond what he “perceives” as wrong but no facts to back it up. He has taken the idea that he is smartest person in the room and isn’t. The reason for a cabinet and other agency heads is to inform the President of world affairs and what is happening in the country. This leader(?) has no patience for meetings that do not aggrandize his ideas and actions. His cadre of aides and assistants rarely go against his wishes or desires for fear of his tweeting about them and firing them via tweet. His appointments of agency heads are many times “acting” positions because he wants to be able to fire them at will. If we were able to “lay” the lies he has put forth end to end we could possible circle the globe. What we have is an entertainer seeking approbation on a daily basis rather than “attempting” to do the job and associated work of the Presidency. His loyalist followers fail to realize what affects one group of people affects us all. The end all (or it should be) is the farce of the recent election being “rigged” against him. His callous actions regarding the pandemic and the subsequent economic downturn should be enough to replace him but his loyal voters fail to see that and follow him unmasked while potentially spreading a deadly infection. With the GOP firmly in hand TOTUS and his allies have brought the country to the lowest level since the “McCarthy Hearings”. The GOP has always been the party of fiscal restraint but this is not the time for restraint with Millions of voters suffering with death, illness, homelessness and economic stagnation. World War II showed us that we (America) can rise out these ashes but not by fiscal restraint. We all need to understand that many times our elected officials are lying to us in order to remain in office. There is no worse crime by elected officials than allowing their constituents to suffer while their paycheck and health care continues unabated. It is incumbent on voters to remember who had their backs in times like these and party affiliation should not be a factor. A persons integrity is more important than their party affiliation.

What is it in a lie that attracts the attention of people? This ongoing diatribe and tweetstorm by TOTUS has become more than a distraction. It has been joined by several members of Congress who have a track record of misleading their constituents. I am wondering if those constituents are really paying attention and understand that their representatives are working for TOTUS and not them (the people who elected them). The ongoing and failing lawsuits over “phantom” election fraud are expensive and time consuming. All of this takes time and funds from the proper operation of the Government. It should be clear that the current and temporary White House occupant has failed for years to deliver on his boasts of better governance and “winning”. We need a stable Federal government and we will not get it by retaining loyalists to a party rather than the voters. There will never be a perfect government but we can get better government by limiting the ability of elected officials to stay in office longer than their usefulness to the public. There comes a time when elected officials who get re elected time after time become comfortable and act against the good of the country and the voters while espousing their devotion to us (the voters), much like a 2 timing lover.

In the past 160 years or so the political parties have changed names, attitudes, goals and ideals. What is especially interesting is the shift of Republicans to Democrats and Democrats to Dixiecrats. These are the most notable party switches or perhaps the most known. These switches have to do with a change in ideals and personal political feelings. This does not change the person! The same miscreants or people of integrity will still be the same. To put a face to this lets look at Mitch McConnell: Moscow Mitch has spent his time in Congress embellishing and shoring up his own brand. He has consistently used race as a lever to continue in office, convincing the Coal miners who are dying from poor health regulations that he is working for them and the “Democrats” are killing the coal industry. The real reason for the coal decline is the use of other fossil fuels which are less expensive, the resistance of Mine owners to maintain a better work environment and pay scale. Many of the closed mines are the result of the owners closing through bankruptcy, leaving nothing for the workers (pensions, unemployment, etc.). Meanwhile Mr. McConnell has continued to push the lies that will keep him in office no matter the consequences to his constituents. He is at once a Racist, misogynist and general miscreant out to feather his own nest with gilded feathers even to producing a Conservative Judicial system that will hurt us all. Botch has no qualms in doing what benefits him while “Madoffing” the rest of us.

The “sudden” onset of Covid (which is a hoax) on TOTUS is again another part of the con game perpetrated on the voters. This administration is on par with a game of “Liars Poker” with the stakes being the health of the voters and the country. There are too many voters who are caught up in the entertainment of this administration while the miscreants in Congress continue to make deals that benefit themselves and their large money donors. The current National leader(?) is self absorbed and ignorant of the duties of the job but continues to bash real information that allows a leader to really lead instead of following flawed or misguided actions. This not a Drill! This the real world where people die based on the actions of their leaders. One can easily espouse ideas and promises but the follow through is more important than the words. This statement by Noted Conservative columnist George Will sums up this administration and it’s titular head: “Presidential Mortification”. The real story here is 3 years of “faking it until you make it” while the country’s voters are at risk economically and in their health. We cannot afford another 4 years of the same at 1600 Fraud avenue or in the Miscreant Congress.

Apparently the real truth is emerging or perhaps has emerged. The GOP seems to be set on reducing the population of the United States starting with the least of us (lower income and people of color). It should be considered that no one in the administration or Congress have lost a cent of wages during this pandemic while restricting funding for the millions affected by the pandemic. To be clear the funds that keep the Government running is all taxpayers dollars. There is no magic pot of gold sup[plying these funds. The way it works: the individuals, corporations and States pay money to the Federal government in the form of taxes. This money is then allocated to the various departments of the Government to finance the country’s needs (i.e. Military, park service, Congress, justice department etc.). So how is that Congress can dictate the usage while still getting paid and the providers of these funds cannot receive the benefits? There is no better reason for electing to terminate the job of any Congressional member and Executive branch member rather than voting by rote because it’s easier or simpler. As voters we need to abandon being entertained rather than being informed by the people we elect to serve. It is a clear message as to the direction we (voters) need to go when major backers of a party have formed independent groups to place ads against the sitting President and his abettors in Congress. The real power is in the vote by informed voters not in entertainment or single issues.

As the White House repeatedly downplayed the state of the pandemic throughout the summer, its own coronavirus task force was quietly sending reports to states that directly contradicted the public remarks offered by President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, showed documents that were unveiled Monday by a congressional panel.Donald Trump et al. standing next to a person in a suit and tie: President Donald Trump, with Response coordinator for White House Coronavirus Task Force Deborah Birx (L) and Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Anthony Fauci (R), speaks on vaccine development on May 15 in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, DC.© Photo by MANDEL NGAN/AFP/Getty President Donald Trump, with Response coordinator for White House Coronavirus Task Force Deborah Birx (L) and Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Anthony Fauci (R), speaks on vaccine development on May 15 in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, DC.

The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis released eight reports, ranging from June 23 to August 9, from the White House Coronavirus Task Force that were provided to states.

Further, the Democratic-led committee concluded, “many states are still failing to comply with key Task Force recommendations, including some recommendations first made nearly two months ago.”

The panel specifically references four states—Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Oklahoma—that it said “acknowledged” receiving the private reports and recommendations, yet largely ignored them by not “implementing additional public health measures recommended by the Task Force to stop the spread of the virus.”

The earliest report to states on June 23 stated that seven states were in a “red zone” and that new cases were up by 70 percent in Arizona, 72 percent in Texas, 87 percent in Florida, 93 percent in Oklahoma and 134 percent in Idaho. One week earlier, on June 16, Pence penned an op-ed that “panic is overblown” about a second wave.

A July 5 report stated 15 states were now in the “red zone” and that Florida “has seen a significant increase in new cases and a significant increase in testing positivity over the past week continuing from the previous 4 weeks.” Two days later, on July 7, Trump rebuked a grim assessment by Dr. Anthony Fauci, a task force member and the country’s top infectious disease expert, saying that “we’ve done a good job” and “I think we are going to be in two, three, four weeks, by the time we next speak, I think we’re going to be in very good shape.”

A July 14 report said 19 states were in the “red zone” and that “more testing is needed.” That same day, Trump inaccurately claimed that “no other country tests like us. In fact, I could say it’s working too much. It’s working too well.”

An August 2 report said 23 states were in the “red zone” and warned about the spread in Louisiana, South Carolina and Oklahoma. The week prior, on July 28, Trump told Axios that “it’s under control as much as you can control it.”

“They are dying, that’s true. And you have—it is what it is,” the president continued. “But that doesn’t mean we aren’t doing everything we can.”

On August 3, Trump tweeted that “cases up because of BIG Testing! Much of our Country is doing very well. Open the Schools!”

An August 9 report showed that 48 states and the District of Columbia were in red or yellow zones.

The congressional panel concluded that many states refused to implement recommendations from the White House Coronavirus Task Force meant to curb the spread.

In a letter to the coronavirus subcommittee, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R), who recently dropped a lawsuit against the Atlanta mayor Kesha Lance Bottoms over a mask mandate, wrote that Americans in both Georgia and the U.S. “grew complacent.”

“Summer holidays coupled with televised protests caused many to let their guard down and abandon guidance provided by public health officials,” Kemp wrote.

In other examples, the committee noted that Florida has declined to initiate a mask mandate, despite the task force’s June 29 advice to do so; Tennessee refused a mask mandate and to close bars and limit restaurant activity in red and yellow zones; and Oklahoma rebuffed the task force’s mask mandate recommendation.

In total, the committee concluded after reviewing the task force reports, “14 states that have been in the ‘red zone’ since June 23 have refused to impose statewide mask mandates per Task Force’s recommendations—including states with severe case spikes like Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Tennessee.”

This is a developing story and will be updated with additional information as it becomes available
