Trump And The GOP Love “Freedom” (?)

As we have seen, Trump did much better in the November 2020 election than he was expected to do. More people voted for him than many polls indicated would be the case. When asked why they like Trump, many Trump supporters have said that they don’t like the way that Democrats want to take away their freedom, and that Trump… Read more The post Trump And The GOP Love “Freedom” (?) appeared first on Broken...

As we have seen, Trump did much better in the November 2020 election than he was expected to do. More people voted for him than many polls indicated would be the case. When asked why they like Trump, many Trump supporters have said that they don’t like the way that Democrats want to take away their freedom, and that Trump and the GOP grant them “freedom.” They often claim that Trump and the GOP love “freedom” and that Democrats do not.

This assertion puzzles me. Here are some examples illustrating why:

Currently, gay people have the freedom to marry in the United States. Citizens gained that freedom nationally during the Obama administration. President Obama is a Democrat.

Marriage

However, if Trump and the GOP love “freedom,” as its members claimed during the run-up to the November 2020 election, then its members would not be trying to take away freedom to marry from others.

Many politicians and opinion and community leaders in the GOP want to take that freedom to legally marry from gay people.  They want to do so by reversing/overturning the Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision.

If you do not like gay marriage, and you do not want to infringe on the freedom of others, you can simply say “thank you, but no thank you,” if someone of the same sex proposes to you.

Pregnancy

Here is another example: Currently, women have the right to safe and legal abortion in the United States.

Many politicians, as well as opinion and community leaders, in the GOP want to take the freedom to obtain safe and legal abortion from women. They want to do so by reversing/overturning the Supreme Court’s Roe decision. Trump explicitly said he would nominate to SCOTUS judges who would seek to overturn Roe.

However, if Trump and the GOP love “freedom,” as its members claim, then its members would not be trying to take away freedom to obtain safe and legal abortion from others.

If you are pregnant and you do not want an abortion, and you do not want to infringe on the freedoms of others, you can simply say “Thank you, but no thank you,” if someone asks whether or not you would like an abortion.

Arms

Many Trump supporters have also insisted that the Democrats want to take away their freedom to own guns, and this is why they voted for Trump.

They said that Democrats were going to try to take away their right to own guns — over and over again — during the eight years that Democrat Barack Obama was president. No one tried to take their guns away during the Obama administration. No Democrats have tried to take their guns away during the 4 years of the Trump administration. 

Thinking that Democrats are suddenly going to move to revoke the Second Amendment when they have not during the last 12 years is a truly perverse and unrealistic form of paranoia.

Clearly, the Democrats are not the ones hell-bent on eliminating freedoms.

Coney Barrett Omitted Data From SCOTUS Paperwork

SCOTUS Candidate Amy Coney Barrett has committed lies of omission in her application to be an Associate Justice on the US Supreme Court, which she provided to the US Senate.

SCOTUS Candidate Amy Coney Barrett has committed lies of omission in her application to be an Associate Justice on the US Supreme Court, which she provided to the US Senate.

According to reporting by CNN, “public calendars from the University of Notre Dame’s law school show at least seven additional talks not listed on Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Senate paperwork, including one with the law school’s anti-abortion group, according to a CNN KFile review.”

Specifically, “calendars list her as participating in a panel on religion in the public square, a speech to a student religious society, a talk with the law school’s anti-abortion group, a roundtable on the Constitution, a faculty colloquium, a student scholarship symposium and an event sponsored by Notre Dame’s Women’s Legal Forum.“

The Senate determines whether she gets the lifetime job. Despite these lies and others she told during her confirmation hearing, the GOP-majority Senate will vote to give Coney Barrett the job because she she will rule to overturn the Affordable Care Act and the Roe v. Wade decision granting women access to abortion.

Coney Barrett committed lies of omission. Jared Kushner committed lies like this in his application for a White House job. Kushner omitted many meetings with various Russians from his security clearance application. He got the Security Clearance because his father-in-law is Trump. Trump overrode the objections of those who evaluate a security clearance candidate’s blackmail liability, among other liabilities.

The Trump swamp is full.

Coney Barrett Knows Her Mission

Trump was explicit. Months ago, he said he would nominate Supreme Court justices who would rule that Roe v. Wade and the Affordable Care Act were unconstitutional and should be struck down. Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett, a judge he named to the Circuit Court, to be a Supreme Court justice, and Coney Barrett knows her mission. Prior to Trump’s… Read more The post Coney Barrett Knows Her Mission appeared first on Broken...

Trump was explicit. Months ago, he said he would nominate Supreme Court justices who would rule that Roe v. Wade and the Affordable Care Act were unconstitutional and should be struck down. Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett, a judge he named to the Circuit Court, to be a Supreme Court justice, and Coney Barrett knows her mission.

Prior to Trump’s nominating her, Coney Barrett was vetted by the Federalist Society. The Federalist Society has asked all the questions that Trump could not or should not ask of her regarding her opinions. We can trust the Federalist Society has explained her job to Coney Barrett, if she were on the Supreme Court.

That work has been done. Coney Barrett knows her mission.

Currently, on the brink of confirmation, she has two key tasks and one potential task. The first task is to join the majority of “conservative” justices and find that the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional.

Predictably, if this happens, we will return to the pre-2010 health care industry hellscape, with 20+% annual cost increases for health care services, and millions of people will have difficulty affording their health insurance premiums. Why? If we were to ask Coney Barrett, she — originalist that she is — would probably tell us SCOTUS must strike down the ACA because the US Constitution does not contain the words “Affordable Care Act.”

Tasks Two and Three

The second task Coney Barrett has is to join the majority of “conservative” justices and rule that Roe v. Wade is unconstitutional.

Unfortunately, this will cause millions of women to seek and obtain illegal abortions for a variety of heartbreaking medical reasons. Many will die as a result. Why? Coney Barrett would likely tell us it is because “abortion” does not appear in the Constitution.

Let’s not deceive ourselves. It is very likely that Coney Barrett and Trump have discussed her mission. She met with him in person. And she was the only candidate for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on the bench who met with him that way.

Which brings us to the third, potential, task. Recently, Trump has made it clear that he wants his lawyers to bring dozens of lawsuits against state elections officials claiming that their election results are illegitimate. Of course, he hopes that the finally decisive legal case ultimately goes to the Supreme Court, so SCOTUS can decide who will be President in January 2021. And Trump wants Coney Barrett on that SCOTUS.

Coney Barrett knows what Trump and the GOP-controlled Senate have hired her to do. She knows her mission.

SCOTUS Precedent à la President?

In the aftermath of the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the 2020 election year SCOTUS Shenanigans have reached a fever (dream) pitch. Sen. Mitch McConnell now claims non-existent precedents explain his egregious behavior.

In the aftermath of the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the 2020 election year SCOTUS Shenanigans have reached a fever (dream) pitch.

Sen. Mitch McConnell now claims non-existent precedents explain his egregious behavior. McConnell is trying to sell a ridiculous idea as a “precedent.” The “precedent” is that if the same party controls the Senate and the White House, then the President can nominate and expect a Senate vote on the SCOTUS nominee.

But of course he just made this up in the last week.

This is the real “precedent” per McConnell and formerly almost respectable Senators like Romney: Republican presidents can nominate Supreme Court justices during an election year but Democratic presidents cannot.

The whole SCOTUS business is just a huge pile of steaming bullshit. McConnell is among the worst of the worst.

The “Law And Order President” Loves Violence

Trump spent a significant amount of time at the Republican National Convention August 24-28 campaigning on the idea that, if re-elected, he would be the “law and order president.” In truth, the “Law and Order President” loves violence. He repeatedly criticized violence that has been happening in America’s “Democrat-run cities.” There have been demonstrations.

Trump spent a significant amount of time at the Republican National Convention August 24-28 campaigning on the idea that, if re-elected, he would be the “law and order president.” In truth, the “Law and Order President” loves violence.

He repeatedly criticized violence that has been happening in America’s “Democrat-run cities.”

There have been demonstrations. We know that demonstrators, who have turned out in “Democrat-run cities” to express their opposition to police violence perpetrated against Black people, are and have been protesting peacefully. We also know that the people committing violence are not the people who are protesting peacefully.

For example, a few months ago there were demonstrations against Democratic governor of Michigan Gretchen Whitmer, in Lansing, Michigan’s Capital City. Many of the people protesting against Covid-19-driven health and safety practices Whitmer instituted were threatening others with guns.

We also know that those protestors with the guns were organized by political groups that are supportive of Trump — these were not grassroots protests were not organized by ordinary citizens. They were organized by political groups funded by people like Secretary of Education and Trump supporter Betsy DeVos.

In addition, many of the people with the guns, protesting against Gov. Whitmer, were also carrying pro-Trump signs or confederate flags or other signs of the groups that support Trump and the Republican party in general.

Advance the timeline to the recent past. At the RNC, we saw Donald Trump and the Republican party leadership promote and honor a couple — who had aimed guns at peaceful protesters outside their home —  by giving the threatening and gun-aiming couple a speaking slot on the first night of the convention.

In addition to knowing the violence in the “Democrat-run cities” is not being perpetrated by the peaceful protesters, we know the factions threatening peaceful protestors and others with guns, and committing violent destruction of property, are the Trump supporters. The other reason we know that the Trump supporters are committing the violence is because Trump needs the violence in order to have something to rail against and pretend to be the “law and order president.”

As a side note about the Republican Party, who had their convention most recently, remember that the Republican Party does not even have a platform, or see a need for one.

Ordinarily, every political party hammers together a platform of policy positions and actions that it would like to take. The Democratic Party has a platform. However, at its convention, in place of a platform, the GOP put out a one-page document stating that it supports the agenda of Donald Trump. The Republican Party is no longer a legitimate political party. It is a cult that stands for and Has vowed to support any ridiculous idea that jump into Trump’s head.

Let’s return to the Trump campaign, the Republican party and its love of and need to perpetrate violence and destruction in America’s “Democrat-run cities.“ Here is the biggest problem with the Trump campaign strategy leveraging violence that his supporters are committing:
Trump does not seem to understand that he is fully empowered to stop the violence. But the “Law and Order President” loves violence.

Trump is in fact currently the president of the United States. He has more power than anyone else and more power than he has never had before.

Most importantly, he has as much power now as he would have if he were re-elected president. If Trump were not president and violence were occurring that he was saying he would be able to stop, if he were elected president, then his strategy might make a tiny sliver of sense. But because he is currently the president, his trying to act as if he’s not and doesn’t have that power is not only ridiculous,  it is completely absurd.

Trump Cancels Republican National Convention

On July 23, Trump canceled the in-person portions of the Republican National Convention in August in Jacksonville, FL, citing the Coronavirus pandemic in Florida. But at the same time, Trump insisted that students should go back to school in August and September — everywhere from Jacksonville, and Miami FL, to rural Wyoming and Michigan, to Phoenix, AZ.

On July 23, Trump canceled the in-person portions of the Republican National Convention in August in Jacksonville, FL, citing the Coronavirus pandemic in Florida.

But at the same time, Trump insisted that students should go back to school in August and September — everywhere from Jacksonville, and Miami FL, to rural Wyoming and Michigan, to Phoenix, AZ.

We have seen Coronavirus outbreaks in summer camps this year — which feature groups of children together. Groups of children in camps are very similar to groups of children together in schools.

Trump has also insisted that he should be allowed to vote by mail — something he has done in previous elections — but that no one else should be allowed to vote by mail.

Trump clearly believes that he should be able to enjoy a very different standard — a much lower one — than ordinary citizens.
