  • Why a little insurrection is no big deal to Republicans

    Thom plus logo If their true scam is admitted, the GOP could wander in the wilderness for two generations

    It seems inexplicable.

    A group of Americans invaded the US Capitol with a plan to kidnap and kill the Vice President and the Speaker of the House, hoping that would throw the Electoral College vote to the US House, where Republicans would declare Donald Trump the winner.

    Thom plus logo Hint: It's all about the money

    Some very wealthy people helped put Donald Trump in office, and have continued to subsidize the Trump presidency and those Republicans who enable it.

  • Trump & the Big Lie must be exposed and cast out

    Thom plus logo The GOP's Big Lie is tearing America apart, as Trump expanded it to assault American democracy.

    A 40-year Republican Big Lie brought us to this crisis point in America.

    When Ronald Reagan was running for president in 1980, one of his biggest boosters was the political heavy hitter Paul Weyrich, who was also a cofounder of the Heritage Foundation and multiple other rightwing think tanks and operations.

    Weyrich told a group of political activist in a church basement in Dallas that the GOP was changing their strategy to win elections.

    Thom plus logo As is laid out in The Hidden History of American Oligarchy, this has been a recurrent battle through the history of America.

    It's all one thing, and the oligarchs and fascists aren't done yet. They want complete control of America.

    When Donald Trump first ran for president, it was a stunt to squeeze more money out of NBC and to polish his brand.

    But when he was unexpectedly elected, he took cues from the corrupt oligarchs he admired around the world and began a serious project to remake and remold America in their image.

    Thom plus logo While everybody is discussing how the FBI is trying to hold to account those who invaded the US Capitol building and several state capitols on January 6, very few national media outlets are supporting or even discussing the idea of holding the true perpetrators to serious account.

    The media narrative today is that "right wing crazies" are the only people involved in this attempt to disrupt Congress and even kidnap or murder some of our elected representatives. But they're missing, almost entirely, the big question: Why did so many people show up?
