Neo-McCarthyism And Russophobia Intertwined

There's been an untold amount of Neo-McCarthyism unfolding before our eyes as a nation, and it's building up to a dangerous level. The reason isn't from the level of Russophobia, even though it's a huge problem; it's from the ultimate conclusion that all dissent is illegitimate as it's all pro-Russian. That conflated conclusion is absolutely absurd beyond reason. I found this article written by Matt Taibbi Rolling Stone explaining how Russiagate exploded from Donald Trump's questionable business ties to numerous Russian oligarchs into a campaign to silence anyone who even bothers to make a minor criticism of how badly the establishment had blown the election in 2016.

Additionally, there's another article on Axios that explains how many of the headlines regarding Robert Mueller's investigation are completely useless and are just flat out wrong. This is another factor of the new wave of McCarthyism's unseemly rise, as it explains the Orwellian overtures through not always checking their facts. That's from the media's use of pseudo-research talking points from organizations like Securing Democracy's Hamilton 68 web page for tracking "Russian trolls/bots". This group has the smells of the same neo-conservatives that got us into Iraq.

By making any and all criticism of the political establishment a worthy charge of treason, it's having the effect of bullying an electorate into compliance. This needs to end before someone gives Donald Trump the bright idea of lobbing a nuke at the Kremlin.

Overreach By The Trump Administration When It Comes To Suing California Over Its Self-Declared Sanctuary-State Status

The Trump Administration is showing classic overreach in its attempts to nullify California's status as a sanctuary state when it comes to immigration law. The lawsuit filed by the Justice Department only places law enforcement in the cross fire over a political question of how to deal with the immigration system that's been broken for years. At the same time, the Trump Administration has gone about solving the problem in the most inhumane way possible; and that is to enforce the law by unnecessarily breaking up families.

Tell Congress Do Not Repeal The Americans With Disabilities Act Of 1990

The ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017 is a naked attempt by the GOP-controlled 115th Congress to repeal the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. This would put an onerous burden on Americans with disabilities to have equal access to all public accommodations as had been spelled out in the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Many business owners still refuse to follow the law claiming financial burden. That's fine and dandy, but it's no justifiable reason for noncompliance. If there's a heavy burden, then have Congress set up a tax-credit system for incentivizing business owners to make the necessary accommodations to allow disabled consumers to fully access their goods or services.

Tell your members of both the House of Representatives and the Senate that their vote to pass will mean your vote to remove them from office in November's midterm election (GOP) or the primaries (Democrats). Calling for the right to discriminate based on disability to be enshrined in law is just wrong. There's no reasonable justification for doing so. Take that message with you to the polls.

Donald Trump And Republicans Are World Class Putzes If They Think They Can Successfully Undercut Robert Muellers Investigation

I don't know how to put that more diplomatically. It's not lost on anyone, including this author Jgsf1987, that Donald Trump and his GOP allies in Congress think they have the perfect plan for getting rid of Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. These people are morons!

Honestly though, none of this is really that shocking or surprising. Some of the Republicans in Congress, like Devin Nunes for example, have been preparing to release a blatantly one-sided memo that completely puts the onus on Trump's political opponents in the National Security apparatus and the FBI to prove that they hadn't colluded with The Obama White House to swing the election to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Especially through allegedly illegal spying.

Losing Revenue Source On Youtube

I get it when it comes to YouTube trying to protect its Youtube Partners program intact, but they're unnecessarily killing newcoming content creators. I made a video of this on my personal Youtube Channel (see above). I hope that Youtube sees the errors of its policy, as this will have the effect of stifling new content creation.

Summary Of How Veterans In California Are About To Be Screwed Over

I saw this article by the Sacremento Bee on Google's search engine regarding how California's veterans have been screwed over by the GOP's tax scam bill. Read it for yourselves and let me know what you think.  

Make 2018 Our Year Of Rage

There's nothing to disprove the fact that the GOP's far-right-wing has chosen the party's donors over the American people. None of this is a massive surprise, as it's what they campaigned on. Now is the time to get our rage together so that we'll boot the far-right-wing out of power on Capitol Hill and across the states. Their tax-scam isn't going to give us jobs, it's just a ruse while they line their pockets with our tax dollars. Susan Sarandon was right in saying that Donald Trump would bring us Bernie Sanders' revolution that much faster.

Don't let the Democrats' congressional and party leadership lull you into a false sense of complacency as we still need to kick out the corporatists within their ranks as well. It's time to tell Nancy Pelosi to step aside for real progressives to take over the House Democrats' leadership. For now let's just hold Chuck Schumer's feet to the fire so that progressive policies go through the ranks of the Senate Democrats. He's been good about keeping an open mind and has been somewhat responsive to progressives within the grassroots.
