Why We Need To Ditch The DNC For Next Year's Midterm

Given the bombshell revelation by Donna Brazille about The Democrats rigging the primaries last year, it's more of a reason to go around the DNC for the midterms next year. That deal they made with Hillary Clinton in 2015 about giving her complete control of their primary process was shameful and shortsighted. Granted the party was in terrible debt after Barack Obama's re-election back in 2012, but that was no excuse to sell their moral compass to a candidate who was so universally disliked and was being investigated for possible treason, via the Espianoge Act, in addition to various other crimes. Additionally, that was no reason to carry out a new wave of McCarthyism following Hillary's loss to Donald Trump.

However, the biggest reason to ditch the DNC is that it's clearly lost touch with the progressive grassroots and the country as a whole. That's why for our purposes it's better to go through Our Revolution. The DNC will never listen to us progressives, and would rather let themselves be steamrolled by the GOP than to concede that we're right on the merits. We can thank Donna Brazille for making our point for us, and many others who have bravely come forward to put an end to the Clinton Dynasty's holding us hostage.

What Next Year Holds In Terms Of Healthcare, Taxes, Et Al.

By all means are we going to see the collapse of what's left of our restored economy next year, and won't get it back again in our lifetimes should the GOP get its way with "Tax Reform." It's made even more aggrivating that the Vice President told Congressional Republicans and their billionaire donors to move quickly to bully the American electorate into supporting this nakedly upward transfer of wealth. How this connects to health care is that there's a complete scrapping of all American's ability to write off medical expenses for tax purposes. That's an additional tax that approximately 90-100% of the people cannot afford. Raising taxes on the poor to subsidize the rich is the most ass-backward approach to retaining a sustainable economy.

Do yourselves a massive favor by using this link to contact your Senators and Representatives in Congress (especially if they're Republicans) and tell them to ditch this plan fast: https://whoismyrepresentative.com/. I can't stress this enough, as it's not right nor sustainable.

Donald Trump Doesn't Understand Nor Support Freedom Of Expression Unless For His Alt-Right Base

The last couple of weeks has shown that Donald Trump clearly doesn't understand the premise that freedom of expression is not exclusively applicable to his alt-right base, nor does he support it for anyone who's not from his alt-right base. If he thinks that using intimidation tactics, via Twitter, he's making a big mistake. People aren't falling for the threats. The president has done more to embolden White Supremacists and encourage their acts of violence than many of his predecessors had. This type of Nixon-esque bullying has no place in our political discourse.

Donald Trump's Latest Tone-Deaf Remarks On Twitter Regarding Aid To Puerto Rico

It's not lost on anyone, including me, that Donald Trump has been a little too trigger happy when it comes to his tweets. The biggest problem is that many of them have been so tone-deaf that they're alienating the very professionals needed to help those in disaster in Puerto Rico. Going after local officials isn't helping in coordination for even the most mild of criticism.





Again, these examples speak for themselves.

North Korea's Kim Jong-Un Is Dumber Than I Realized


North Korea has just shown its sheer level of stupidity. As it turns out, their moron leader, Kim Jong-Un, has made clear just how suicidal and apocalyptic he is. If he thinks that we won't bother to retaliate should he launch a missile at Guam, he's definitely smoking some bad weed. The same also holds true if he thinks that Russia and China will back him up, should he go on the offensive. It's like I just described in my latest video on Youtube, and on my Facebook page and Twitter feed, he's in for a nasty surprise when that happens. Russia and China have made their point of absolute neutrality should North Korea fire the first shot pretty clear.

This latest nuclear test has just gotten both the Russians and the Chinese into the stage of considering their most beneficial outcome, and that outcome looks good for neither North Korea nor Kim Jong-Un himself. There on notice that America is ready to flex its diplomatic and economic muscles with both of them, and they both know that being on good terms with America is a much better deal for them. This is primarily why both Russia and China are now beginning to think with their wallets. They both know that coughing up North Korea's Kim Regime may be a worthwhile down payment in a much more lucrative investment in America's profitable markets.

White Supremacists Come To San Francisco

Just when I thought that things couldn't get any crazier, I've been proven wrong yet again. Apparently, what was once the laughable anecdote about White supremacists coming to San Francisco and making idiots of themselves has now become a frightening reality. The National Park Service, unsurprisingly, approved a staging permit for many different elements of the White supremacy movement (Neo-Nazis, Neo-Confederates, Oath Keepers, etc.) to hold a rally in Chrissy Field. My advice to anyone and everyone coming to visit San Francisco over the weekend: stay away from Chrissy Field and the Marina District! There's no reason to engage a rally of White supremacists looking to incite violence.

If you have any further questions for me, hit me up on either Facebook and/or Twitter.

Out Of Control Threats Of Nuclear War

I can't begin to describe the ramifications at play here, with loose threats of nuclear warfare between Donald Trump & Kim Jong-Un, without turning it into a history lecture. That's the price I pay for being a history graduate from San Francisco State University. I'll try to keep this as concise as I can, but no guarantees.

Loose threats of nuclear war are terrifying beyond the imagenable, and it should serve as a major wake-up call to quicken the process of nuclear disarmament. For the people who grew up during the Cold War, this is a terrifying reminder of their childhood and adolescense. That makes their terror very justifiable.

However, one of the ways these threats have gotten so out of control is by the leadership in North Korea having absolutely no regard for human life. Even worse is the level of cockiness by Kim, who thinks that he'll be able to take on America with the aid of North Korea's de facto allies: Russia and China. This is where he is wrong on so many levels as the dynamics are much different now than with the start and end of the Korean War in 1950-3. The biggest reason is that Russia and China are not going to back North Korea up should it engage in a war of aggression against America and its regional allies.

This doesn't mean that the American side is without its own contributions. For years, America has been engaging in aggressive activity very close to North Korea's territory, both terrestrial and marine, through joint military exercises with both Japan and South Korea. Granted, these activities are primarily defensive in origin, but their execution can come across as a threat to the North. Another factor to add is the cockiness on display by Trump, who, in a way, is lettling his ego cloud his judgment in a sense. Trump is a president with no prior experience in government, which puts him at a huge learning curve.
