    Almost a billion $ spent in the 2 Senate races in GA in 2020. Republicans spent the most by a lot. Looks like we will win both races. Ossoff has not been called yet. Both races extremely close. If Ossoff is declared we have 2 good years in the Senate. The biggest victory is Republicans are blaming Trump. Less than 2 years until next elections.

    I lived with a Russian who had escaped Stalin's gulag when a teen with his Dad and Uncle. They led the white Russian resistance from abroad and his mother was killed by Stalin's KGB. He always said that American's should not be so complacent in thinking that "it couldn't happen here". He explained disinformation to me in graphic terms as to how it permeated society including the arts world of which he was a part.

    Reading Orwell was very instructive, as he advised me to read it to understand Russia's plight.

    I'm so glad he and his wife did not live to see the horrendus mess that their beloved adopted country has turned into,

    And indeed what a deep rabbit hole it is!

    Here's a suggestion. If you want to see how the sausage is made, tune into C-Span. You can go to their website to watch the video record at your convenience as well. Actually listen to our senators and representatives. You would find out who is fighting for civil rights, affordable health care, decent wages for folks doing the real work, privacy, and much more.

    I live in a state with a smallish population. I have been lucky enough to meet my senators and representative. They are good decent people who fight for what I mentioned. I am not rich or connected. They simply do town halls and come to my area every year. I am involved and an activist. Our state and local decision makers are also very accessible.

    I get the dismay over Bilderberg, Davos and even the think-tanks, but giving up because it seems we are out gunned assures defeat. Equivocating is a false narrative used to discourage participation. Choose to fight for what is right. That is what Thom is asking in today's blog. Hold them accountable, investigate and prosecute. We need to be accountable for getting our officials to do just that.

    Ah, that's your rabbit hole. "We" have been mercifully spared by The Overlord of the Universe.

    It would be nice if you would give some examples where I didn't have to do a bunch of research.

    It seems to me our only problem is republicans who appointed Lewis Powell to SCOTUS (he is best known as Richard Nixon).

    Eliminating dissenting opinion is the road to authoritarianism.
    Thin makes a nice point about what the Republicans have done to destroy trust. They certainly have.
    Creating fantasy phantoms and that people will accept them is part of human nature.
    What is not suggested here is that we trust what we're told.
    when your propagandized over and over and over again you will believe what you're told it works it worked in Germany it's working again.
    Science is not infallible. We trust in it also and some of the trust we have is faulty. It is not the end all we have made it the end all.
    let's take into consideration that our government is totally corrupt on both sides. Let's add into the equation that our government that we trust in so well after world war II brought the Nazis over and put them in our system.
    It's called Operation paperclip and it's well verified.
    So, when every aspect of the truth is not revealed then we can only see the surface that we're given and we readily accept it.
    We are living in a matrix that's controlled by the controllers at the top. We don't see the controllers so we don't even know they exist. They are there pulling the strings on the chessboard and we are the pawns.
    The goal is world order and the enslavement of the world.
    when we only deal with the surface issues we're never going to get to the secrets that are being done and the lies and the moving us toward the cliff.
    We are going to stay at the lower level and only see what they want us to see.
    The Rothschilds own half the world's wealth.
    There is a group of man meeting in Switzerland for global reset.
    People need to get their heads out of their asses and realize they're in a losing battle because they only see what's in front of them. Everything that's happening is being manipulated. Members of both parties are on the team.
    There can't be freedom in world order. The people who were involved in Germany's downfall just came over here and started doing it again. go underground and come back up and start diseasing the next society that stopped you last time.
    it's not just the Republican party that's the first problem we're dealing with is it again we're dealing with only one part of the whole big rabbit hole we're in.
    The enemy that is destroying us works secretly and covertly and they're on both teams. When you're on both teams you can corrupt in two different ways and still have your goal met. It's the hegelian dialect and it's been used for centuries against humans.
    It was used at 9/11 to bring Patriot act Homeland security and watching us on every form of technology we have.
    Are the Democrats trying to stop that no.
    Did they keep re-upping Patriot act yes.
    The system we live under is going to sink because people will not read they will not question they will not critically think.
    When Tom suggests that there are things that are said in stone he's absolutely mistaken.
    If you control the money and the media you control the behavior of its citizens. If you keep telling lies and over and over and over again you can make people believe what you tell them especially when you try to back it up with science which in itself is a fallable system.
    The powers on the planet that control know this and that is why daily we are bombarded with virus and fear.
    Daily we are bombarded with election fraud.
    You do it long enough and you create chaos and then you can come in and take over.
    I'm sorry that people think that it's only the Republicans that are harming us. We live in a complete facade and we've gone to customs to it and are comfortable with it. We are living in insanity and we believe that this is normal.
    we have government agencies robbing us of billions and trillions of dollars.
    We have the government giving us free stimulus checks and we're 26 trillion plus in debt.
    Does anyone believe that the country can stay afloat with this madness.
    Here's a scenario. If the world leaders decided that a virus would make people bend over and that the United States would have the majority of the cases involvedand you stole people's liberty in the guise of a virus would you still be wearing your masks like obedient sheep!!

    I'm pretty much with Dr. Richard on this.
    The importance of education rather than purely trust has to be emphasized here.
    We have had an ongoing purposeful dumbing down in the classroom for the last
    40+ years and the idea of "trust" being the decisive factor in decision making is
    an idea that has heavy roots in the generation of people who grew up in the 1950s.
    Trust your doctor, trust your dentist, trust your accountant, etc. stems from this
    ancient and foolhardy antiquated notion. Of course, people can't know everything
    (learning and curiosity made difficult by keeping the populous busy working multiple
    jobs), but the ability to use reason and even the simplest of analytical deduction is not
    only not taught, but is actually frowned upon by those that disparage others who show
    even a simple aptitude at deductive reasoning. It's needed more than ever now.
    Scandinavian countries teach this to grade school kids. We should be doing this here.

  • Only public trials and humiliation can save the American experiment from the Trump/GOP coup attempt   2 weeks 3 days ago

    I’ve been saying over and over for years that Obama’s biggest mistake was not holding the Bush administration and Wall Street and the mortgage bankers accountable for their crimes and excesses.

    No matter how much good you do during your presidency, the most important thing is to ensue that it what not be undone and that you are not leaving the door open for the likes of Trump.

    As one wise pundit said, “politicians are rarely rewarded by the voters for the good that they do." For Democrats to win, they have to expose Republicans for the corrupt greedy bigots that they are. And that is done by as Thom says, “public trials and humiliation."

    The lesson from this should be accountability, accountability, accountability. If Republicans are not held accountable, it will all be a disasterous waste of time.

  • How the Supreme Court set up the authoritarian takeover of America   2 weeks 3 days ago

    Watching the Georgia Senatorial election summary. The infux of Democratic voters moving into the state for the better job opportunities gives hope to watering down the Republican stronhold in the sunshine states. As a comparison the stale ecomomy here in Ohio still is occupied by old line Republican ultra conservative voters. The odds are Rev. Warnuck may win the day, but Sen. Perdue will win re-election against Osroff. We must look forward to 2022 and capturing the senate at that time when more opportunities present themselves.

  • How the Supreme Court set up the authoritarian takeover of America   2 weeks 3 days ago

    The comments, if considering them of any intellence at all, from Trumpers here in Prescott is that the people in government are running the country down and those that support the "game as it exists" a democratic government are corrupt and they should be flush out with the swamp. Turning the tables its called.

    The logical falsies abound here. Guilt by Association. Switching or turning the tables. Red Baiting, and more.

    The most harmfull of them being duped by their criminals in politics buddies is that falicy of " The Life Boat Mantality" where what ever mental healthiness they might have posssesed from their parents is destroyed by the threat that their is only enough room for some in the life boat and some have to be pushed into the deap.

    The serious problem, as in place where Nazism started, is that once they drain the swamp they are the snakes in control. Their is no better place to be then in a healthy and growing democracy.

  • Only public trials and humiliation can save the American experiment from the Trump/GOP coup attempt   2 weeks 3 days ago

    I hope Thom takes our guys (Mark Pocan and Ro Kahanna) in the back room and gives them some lessons. Ro said why bother putting those seditious repugs on trial, because they will just be replaced by worse representatives. Thom's callers tried to straighten him out, However, no one pointed out what great theater it would make.

    Mark Pocan did not even seem to know what judicial review was all about. He deferred to Thom. Since I think the best way to overcome the autocrats of SCOTUS is for congress everyday to open their session with a reading of Article 3, Section 2, I was sorely disappointed.

  • Only public trials and humiliation can save the American experiment from the Trump/GOP coup attempt   2 weeks 3 days ago

    It seems to me that peer reviewing is what provides the trust.

  • Only public trials and humiliation can save the American experiment from the Trump/GOP coup attempt   2 weeks 3 days ago

    Of course science isn't really trust so much as peer reviewed work, hypothesis testing, and statistical studies of what nature seems to be doing. Also, it can't prove a negative (maybe there's a way of going faster than light that no one has ever found, but until they do it's a reasonable assumption that we can't do that).

    All this requires logic, a basic understanding of nature, and clear thinking no matter where it takes you. Not that much of these ways of seeing the world seem to be well taught in many American schools, Newscasters take differences like Darwin vs. Creationism as a football match between two equal "teams", or climate change as not connected to natural disasters, and politicians rarely have deep understanding of these issues.

    So naturally the public is often suspicious of what it doesn't understand and what thus seems frightening, and too many members will retreat to conspiracy theories or fantasy beliefs. Magical thinking is Trump's stock in trade, and when you aren't using logic it's easy to buy into that. Good luck having a functioning democracy under these circumstances.

  • Trump Isn't Our Biggest Problem: It's the Authoritarian Fascist Movement He's Launched   2 weeks 3 days ago

    Well, today, let's hope Georgians put McConnell in his place where he belongs -- in the minority. And, tomorrow, let the Republican shitshow commence.

    I have a dream (apologies to MLK)...

    It's a world where authoritarian fascism backfires on Republicans and becomes their worst nightmare. Their votes are all deemed fraudulent and never counted -- you know, just because. They can't have guns, own huge gas-guzzling pickups, display huge gaudy flags, log on to the internet, or attend all-white churches. They can only earn the minimum wage, can't have affordable insurance, affordable housing, food stamps, welfare, or education past high school -- just enough "ejukashun" to work ditch-digging jobs till they drop dead since they're also banned from ever retiring. And in congressional debates, they just have to STFU! (WARNING: very crude and offensive link; apologies to Teletubbies.)

    When there's a pandemic, they get rounded up and put in crowded cages far away from other human beings, where they're forbidden from wearing facemasks, can't get inoculated, or have access to doctors, nurses, or ICU beds, and their deaths are recorded as nothing more than from the "common flu."

    Oh yeah, and when there's a neocon greedy corporate resource war to fight, guess who gets drafted first and finds themselves in a foxhole on the front lines with substandard weapons, armor, artillery backup, and air support because of rampant corruption in the privatized "defense" industry.

    Fortunately (because I'm a liberal and think all people must be treated fairly and equally regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, politics, etc.), my karmic fantasy should never be realized. But we can always make fun of the stupid-fckng-lying-hypocritical bastards -- you know, all that free-speech stuff. 🤣

    I think that people that want to buy weapons that are designed to kill humans should have to take the MMPI. It is used at a lot of industrial sites to allow people to work. Because I have been to a lot of different sites I have taken it a lot. Personally I think it is good to know if you are considered crazy, depressed or normal.

    If you have not listened to the Trump tape, you should. When you listen to it you have to realize that he has done this to every close voting state. His Evangelical Lawyer is in the backgound at times and does not advise him that what he is doing is illegal. The Republicans should be demanding impeachment, just to save their soul.

  • How the Supreme Court set up the authoritarian takeover of America   2 weeks 3 days ago

    As long as the oligarchs and billionaires control all three branches of our government, Congress is unlikely to do anything of substance that would make our democracy into one that other countries would want. We need a critical mass of our citizens to unite with strategic nonviolent resistance and use that power to compel our elected officials to promote our general welfare and abolish the factions (the oligarchs and billionaires) that are destroying our nation.

    I heartily agree that we need a "radical revolution of the mind" like deepspace has proposed, and we need to start with defining our government's purpose and then teaching our fellow citizens why that purpose is not being met. (Hint, read Thom's Blog above.) Then we need to collaborate with our elected and appointed officials to use best practice-based solutions to promote our general welfare and manage our commons. If money is no longer considered free speech and corporations are no longer treated as citizens, our government will be much less likely to engender corruption, if only because the grifters will find a new mark or two to shake down. Perhaps in Scotland.

How Much Better Off would America be If 6 Republican Presidents Hadn't Stolen The White House?

Thom plus logo It's about time the last one, Trump, is held accountable

Trump's impeachment trial is coming up in the Senate, and already his allies are trying to throw up procedural roadblocks to exhaust the effort to hold him accountable. Should America "move beyond" Trump? No friggin' way.
