    Morning everyone . Yes! Let’s 😃

    Great advice! That’s our plan. Nothing wrong with a quiet weekend at home writing postcards to voters and seeing our daughter briefly coming and going as she passes through town. The Jeffrey Goldberg article in the Atlantic about tRump’s disdain for our military has legs. People who might not have otherwise considered Biden are doing so now! I looked up all the current Senators who have a record of military service and tweeted a message to them. Here’s an example: http://twitter.com/FardigJudith/status/1302076262991626240

    Retired Major General Paul Eaton and Gold Star Mom Karen Meredith speak to Rachel Maddow.
    -VoteVets Response To Jeffrey Goldberg article in the ‘Atlantic’.

      Karen Meredith’s son,
      First Lieutenant Kenneth Ballard was killed while serving in Iraq.
      She is VoteVets Gold Star Family coordinator.
      “Ken was my only child, so I’ve already had the worst day of my life. And nobody else can say anything as bad as what happened on May 30 2004.”
      “This presidency is different because he doesn’t seem to have a concept of service…
      In the Obama Administration he (President Obama) has been serving, starting out as a community organizer, so he knows what serving means, and sacrificing. (-) I’m not sure who in this Administration really understands what service and sacrifice means.”

    “I am stunned that anybody in the United States military would consider you anything but a loser or a sucker. You’re no patriot.” — Ret. U.S. Army Major General Paul Eaton has a scathing message for Trump.

  14. September 6, 2020 at 12:55 pm

    Retired Major General Paul Eaton speaks to Rachel Maddow:
    General Eaton:
    “I’d just like to say to everybody that Karen Meredith is a personal hero to me and to my wife PJ.
    She is a brave wonderful woman, and I thank her for coming on tonight as well.”

      “Let me start by asking you the same question that I asked her.
      When you read or learned of the president’s remarks that were published a little more than 24 hours ago now, how did it land with you?”
      General Eaton:

      “Rachel it took me a couple of minutes to read the article. It took me a nanosecond to be truly angry.
      I shaved, it got in front of the camera, knocked out a 2 minute 15 second piece to get out on twitter. And just to make known just how AWFUL the level of disrespect, in thought, word, and deed that we get out of this president. And how it detracts from his capacity to serve as a leader anywhere, but certainly as a commander in chief. He has no right to be there.”

    • September 6, 2020 at 12:59 pm

      “General, I wanted to ask you specifically about that moment where you held up your father’s ID tag.
      And talked about your father being killed in the Vietnam war. I just wondered now that we have learned more – there’s been supporting reporting, both bolstering what Jeffrey Goldberg put in the Atlantic, but also adding to it. And one of the things that was reported in the Washington Post: ““The president has told senior advisors he didn’t understand why the U.S. government placed such value on finding soldiers in action because “They had performed poorly and gotten caught and deserved what they got.””
      I have to ask your reaction to that, given your connection with your father and his service, and how he was lost in combat.”

    • September 6, 2020 at 1:00 pm

      General Eaton:
      “Rachel we have an ethos in the U.S. military.
      And one of the reasons that the American soldier, marine, airman, sailor, coastguardsman, will do amazing things is because they trust the chain of command to bring them back. That the chain of command will give the bullets, and the food, and the leadership they need in order to prosecute the mission. So this dog tag, this dog tag was found by a member of the Joint Task Force Full- Accounting Team (JTF-FA). A team that goes to former war zones and brings back the remains of our fallen. You can see that it’s mangled – what happens to a dog tag in an explosion when the aircraft goes down. Our country, this great country, goes to great lengths to bring back our fallen. And again, the reason the American soldier does so well is he trusts the chain of command to do just that. Unfortunately, after what we’ve heard about this particular president, that’s a hard sell to every drill sergeant trying to build a soldier out of every young man and woman who comes through our doors.”

    In case you’re in need of distraction, for a moment, looks like HBO is offering freebies. I didn’t know until I checked out what I could watch. Have no idea how long freebies will last. Am checking out Lovecraft Country, 4 episodes, right now. Hope freebies last long enough for me to see entire series. 💞

        “Imagine, for a moment, that you had sixty days left to bring about the final collapse of a democracy, just before a crucial election. You were the President, so you had plenty of ways to do it — if only you were a little thoughtful. How would you go about it?

        Trump is a moron in every other respect — but he seems to have a supernatural talent for authoritarianism. Take it from us survivors — he is preparing to collapse American democracy for good.

        We survivors have a thing I’ve come to call RED. Radar for the End of Democracy. Just like a blind person develops a better sense of hearing, we survivors, having lived collapse before, tend to see weak signals first, connect their dots.

        So here is what we’re seeing.”


        “American democracy is going to die in 60 days. Trump is preparing very, very carefully, very well, like in a textbook, to bring about its final end. But Americans appear not to be preparing, uniting, rising to the moment much, if at all.

        It is happening here. The kind of collapse that will shake the world and make history. The final collapse of American democracy is mere weeks away.”

        It’s not a ‘conspiracy theory’ it is an accurate description of precisely what has been happening since 20Jan17.

        No matter the outcome on 4 Nov, Trump will never depart peacefully.

        Failing to prepare Americans to avert that reality, means organizing patriotic Americans to force Trump & Pence to resign by the largest non-violent action in US History and unprecedented in the 21st Century by any other society attempting to overcome an authoritarian regime (though the folk in Hong Kong have taught us a few lessons).

    “When Republicans and Unions Got Along”
    “Support for unions is rising. The G.O.P. might want to be part of that.”
    “In September 1952, Dwight D. Eisenhower spoke to a convention of labor leaders and told them that before joining the Army, he took a job at a dairy plant where “I worked 84 hours a week on the night shift from 6 to 6, seven nights a week.” Recognizing how extreme that was, Eisenhower said, in a nod to labor, “In the years since, unions, cooperating with employers, have vastly improved the lot of working men and women.”
    “Only a handful of unreconstructed reactionaries harbor the ugly thought of breaking unions,” Eisenhower told labor leaders that day.”

    During the Impeachment trial in the Senate…Cong Adam Schiff from the House Intelligence committee gave chilling testimony about why Trump was impeached and why the Senate had to remove him from office…he warned the Senate Republicans that if Trump was not removed from office ..things would get worse…and he was right…
    Trump continues to abuse Presidential power and breaks the law because he believes he is above the law…..

    The Navajo Nation’s 32-hour partial weekend lockdown is currently in effect until Monday, Sept. 7 at 5:00 a.m. (MDT) to help control and prevent the spread of COVID-19 on the Navajo Nation.
    “We are optimistic that the Navajo Nation will not see another spike in new COVID-19 cases after this holiday weekend. We have done a lot of public outreach to educate our people about the importance of wearing masks, staying home, washing hands, social distancing, and avoiding large crowds. Hopefully, we don’t have too many people traveling this weekend and putting themselves at risk. Please make smart decisions for you and your family members and please think of others. Stay home, stay safe, and save lives,” said Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez.
    (Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez and Vice President Myron Lizer)

    • September 7, 2020 at 3:40 pm

      “On Sunday, the Navajo Department of Health, in coordination with the Navajo Epidemiology Center and the Navajo Area Indian Health Service, reported nine new COVID-19 positive cases for the Navajo Nation and one more death. The total number of deaths is now 523 as of Sunday. Reports indicate that 7,148 individuals have recovered from COVID-19 and 97,110 COVID-19 tests have been administered. The total number of positive COVID-19 cases is now 9,900.”
