    Hannah Arendt: “The Origins of Totalitarianism”.
    “The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the convinced Communist,
    but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction (i.e., the reality of experience)
    and the distinction between true and false (i.e., the standards of thought) no longer exist.
    In this malignant reality,”
    (deVega): “people who are in thrall to Donald Trump
    (or the other ignominious fascist and authoritarian leaders whom he adores and imitates)
    do not know what right and wrong are anymore.
    When these distinctions are pointed out, Trump’s supporters double down on their investment in the Great Leader and “the Movement,” focusing their rage and violence against the political truth-teller.”

    Dr. Rachel Bitecofer who predicted a 42-seat blue wave, was ignored by the pundits in 2018.
    Update: “Does anyone understand the 2020 race? This scholar nailed the blue wave — here’s her forecast.”

    Danish P.M. Mette Frederiksen:
    “Thankfully the time where you buy and sell countries and populations is over.”
    Richard Wolfe: “Greenland doesn’t just bubble into Trump’s mind randomly, unless Fox News is airing obscure weekend segments on arctic politics. But it is very much on Russia’s radar. Earlier this year, Russia revamped its arctic circle military base on the tiny Kotelny Island, which sits close to the shipping routes that are opening up as the polar region warms catastrophically.”
    (https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/aug/21/trump-wanting-to-buy-greenland-is-yet-another-sign-of-putins-puppetry)

    • August 21, 2019 at 5:04 pm

      Wolfe:
      “There are unknown quantities of oil, gas and rare earth metals in the arctic, and the region’s powers – Denmark among them – can either green light a global free-for-all or restrain the usual human plunder of one of the last pristine frontiers on the planet.”
      “It is one of the sickest Trump jokes that his half-baked idea of buying Greenland should be seen as American machismo when it is yet another sign of Putin’s puppet American presidency at work.”
      “Denmark is a loyal ally within the organization that Russia loathes: Nato.”
      “Trump himself seems to be easily bought by his Russian and Saudi friends. He’s so cheap you only have to dangle the idea of a Trump Tower in Moscow to win his undying support for lifting sanctions imposed after Russia invaded and annexed part of Ukraine.”

    • August 21, 2019 at 5:42 pm

      P.S.
      1) Been saying (for years) that the melting of the Arctic is a strategic decision by EXXON, (Koch) + friends.
      2) EXXON’s scientists demonstrated how burning fossil fuels was heating the planet = 40+ years ago.
      3) Their catastrophic projections of the fallout have been and continue to be devastatingly accurate.

    THIS is the long lasting impact of Elections have Consequences.

    Parts of our federal judicial system–packed with Moscow Mitch and Orange Satan Blotus picks of “judges” with LIFETIME appointments– further compromising our election process for a fair election and legitimate outcome. So even states that have laws or may be in the processing of passing laws that say the state’s electoral votes MUST go to the the winner of that state’s popular vote, shit rulings like this overrule the state’s laws. So much for STATE’s RIGHTS!!! the Repugs are always shouting about unless and until the federal courts come out with a ruling that work out in their favor. I gotta question whether this particular “Democratic Elector” was truly a Democrat. I’m so effing mad right now I could spit.

    A court ruling just changed how we pick our president

    https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/elections/faithless-elector-court-ruling-just-changed-how-we-pick-our-n1044961

    “A federal appeals court ruled late Tuesday that presidential electors who cast the actual ballots for president and vice president are free to vote as they wish and cannot be required to follow the results of the popular vote in their states.

    The decision could give a single elector the power to decide the outcome of a presidential election — if the popular vote results in an apparent Electoral College tie. It hasn’t been much of an issue in American political history because when an elector refuses to follow the results of a state’s popular vote, the state simply throws the ballot away. But Tuesday’s ruling says states cannot do that.

    The decision, from a three-judge panel of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver, is a victory for Micheal Baca, a Colorado Democratic elector in 2016. Under state law, he was required to cast his ballot for Hillary Clinton, who won the state’s popular vote. Instead, he crossed out her name and wrote in John Kasich, a Republican and then the governor of Ohio.

    The secretary of state removed Baca as an elector, discarded his vote and brought in another elector who voted for Clinton. In a 2-1 decision, the appeals court said the nullification of Baca’s vote was unconstitutional.

    “This court decision takes power from Colorado voters and sets a dangerous precedent,” said Jena Griswold, Colorado’s secretary of state. “Our nation stands on the principle of one person, one vote. We are reviewing this decision with our attorneys, and will vigorously protect Colorado voters.”

    The federal court ruling conflicts with a decision from Washington state’s Supreme Court in May, which said electors must follow the results of the popular vote. “The power of electors to vote comes from the state, and the elector has no personal right to that role,” the court said.”

      Lets say you’re a republican and a blue collar worker. At what in trump’s campaign to become president did he win you over from an economic standpoint? Because I’ve got to tell you something, I’m not the brightest guy in the world. But I’ve never let someone blow smoke up my ass to such an extent that I voted for them.

      On July 28, 1868, the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified. The amendment grants citizenship to “all persons born or naturalized in the United States” which included former slaves who had just been freed after the Civil War.

    All judicial appointees under administrations of presidents who may or may not be legal , not collusion free, should be reversed.
    Bad behaviour should not be rewarded.
    If they are allowed to get away with this ….it will only continue to go on. The lesson is, to teach folks what is right and what isn’t. And actions often speak louder than words.
    It is not right to win dishonestly.

    Just my opinion … then again I certainly ain’t the sharpest tool in the box 😂.

      I’ve always believed that as We were OK w/the SCOTUS 09Dec00 stoppage of FL Recount (GOP never would have been OK with it, had it been in Gore’s Favor), that led to McConnell’s stealing a SCOTUS Seat. It led to Citizen United, Gutting the Voting Rights, OK for the Gun Law interpretation ruling by Scalia, it led to OK on gutting the Campaign Finance Reform laws, OK to the dastard ruling of Gerrymandering this year. Dems as a Party Need to start saying, Nope, Not in Our Constitution, Not Democratic, these Ideological Rulings are against a democratic Republic as was originally crafted.
      Timidity, Tacitly standing by, working out through the Courts when the SCOTUS is packed Illegally is NOT Justice for all.
