When the President and one major, political party encourage people to riot, the America we love is lost.

This is what has been happening:

Trump’s ‘liberate’ tweets supporting lockdown protesters spur social media frenzy

President Trump sparked uproar on Twitter Friday with a series of tweets encouraging followers to “liberate” amid a growing movement of protests across the country to demand governors reopen “non-essential businesses” and send people back to work.

The three states Trump tweeted about — Virginia, Michigan and Minnesota — are run by Democratic governors and critics have responded by calling to “liberate America” from the president.

The protests — mainly led by conservative supporters of Trump – are a controversial part of a growing effort to turn around an economy that has been hurt in recent weeks because of the pandemic.

Trump has announced that the buck will stop with — the governors, not with him.

In other words, he will sit back and toss verbal bombs, and whatever bad happens, the governors will take the blame, and whatever good happens, Trump will take the credit.

Either way, Trump’s followers will parrot Trump’s words, screaming like zombies, and Mitch McConnell and Mike Pence will agree, so long as someone tells them what to agree with.

Here is one of the 40 signs instigated by Donald Trump’s anti-science, insanity-inducing tweets.

It has become crazy, when the President and a political party want people to ignore science, their elected leaders, and the safety of their family, friends, and fellow Americans.

Yes, the right-wing gun-nuts are out there, threatening people. What did you expect?

For example, when the President screams, “LIBERATE, LIBERATE, LIBERATE” what is he telling his followers to do?

He sure isn’t talking about a rational discussion. He sure isn’t talking about voting next November. He is telling people to take strong action, now, against their own state and city governments.

In Trump’s ‘LIBERATE’ tweets, extremists see a call to arms

When President Donald Trump tweeted “LIBERATE MINNESOTA!” on Friday morning, some of his most fervent supporters in far-right communities — including those who have agitated for violent insurrection — heard a call to arms.

Trump’s tweets came after small protests by Trump supporters broke out in a handful of states, many of which were fueled by anti-vaccination and anti-government groups.

Anti-government sentiment has percolated among far-right extremists in recent weeks over the stay-at-home orders governors have issued to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Trump’s tweets, however, pushed many online extremist communities to speculate whether the president was advocating for armed conflict, an event they’ve termed “the boogaloo,” for which many far-right activists have been gearing up and advocating since last year.

These are people who demand “freedom.” For them, freedom means, “I will do whatever I please, whenever I please, no matter whom I hurt, and if you try to stop me, I will shoot you.”

And then they wave an American flag to demonstrate how patriotic they are.

Did you ever think you’d see the day in America when the President of the United States and his political party would advocate armed conflict against the government?

It’s happening, right now. That is how incredibly stupid America has become under Trump’s guise of “Making America Great, Again.”

Rebellion: This is how dictatorships are born, and if you folks out there fear socialism or liberalism, wait until you get a taste of fascism.

This is what Trump has wrought:

What is the ‘boogaloo’?
How online calls for a violent uprising are hitting the mainstream

The movement says it wants a second Civil War targeting liberal political opponents and law enforcement.

An anti-government movement that advocates for a violent uprising targeting liberal political opponents and law enforcementhas moved from the fringes of the internet into the mainstream and surged on social media in recent months, according to a group of researchers that tracks hate groups.

The movement is organized around the term “boogaloo,” includes groups on mainstream internet platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Reddit, as well as fringe websites including 4chan, according to a report released Tuesday night by the Network Contagion Research Institute (NCRI), an independent nonprofit of scientists and engineers that tracks and reports on misinformation and hate speech across social media.

Mussolini biografia.jpgAmerica has fallen under a Mussolini-style government, with a dictator fomenting violence by mindless crowds who scream mindless slogans.

[After removing all political opposition through his secret police and outlawing labor strikes, Mussolini and his followers consolidated their power through a series of laws that transformed the nation into a one-party, fascist dictatorship.

Within five years, Mussolini had established dictatorial authority by both legal and extraordinary means.]

Do you hear the mob, the echos of “Il Duce, Il Duce,” “MAGA, MAGA” reverberating through our streets?

THE SOLE PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT IS TO IMPROVE AND PROTECT THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE.

The most important problems in economics involve:

  1. Monetary Sovereignty describes money creation and destruction.
  2. Gap Psychology describes the common desire to distance oneself from those “below” in any socio-economic ranking, and to come nearer those “above.” The socio-economic distance is referred to as “The Gap.”

Wide Gaps negatively affect poverty, health and longevity, education, housing, law and crime, war, leadership, ownership, bigotry, supply and demand, taxation, GDP, international relations, scientific advancement, the environment, human motivation and well-being, and virtually every other issue in economics.

Implementation of Monetary Sovereignty and The Ten Steps To Prosperity can grow the economy and narrow the Gaps:

Ten Steps To Prosperity:

1. Eliminate FICA

2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D, plus long-term care — for everyone

3. Provide a monthly economic bonus to every man, woman and child in America (similar to social security for all)

4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone

5. Salary for attending school

6. Eliminate federal taxes on business

7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually. 

8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.

9. Federal ownership of all banks

10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9% 

The Ten Steps will grow the economy and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and the rest.

  1. This wasn’t so hard, was it:

    Canada bans all assault-style weapons

    Canada on Friday banned the use and sale of all assault-style weapons, effective immediately, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced.

    The ban comes after a deadly shooting in Nova Scotia in April that ended with 22 people dead. The Associated Press writes the ban affects “over 1,500 models and variants of assault-style firearms, including two weapons used by the [Nova Scotia] gunman as well as the AR-15.”

    Trudeau said the weapons are unnecessary for hunting, and said “There is no use — and no place — for such weapons in Canada.” It is “no longer permitted to buy, sell, transport, import or use military-grade, assault weapons in this country,” said Trudeau, but it is not illegal to own the weapons.

    Very sensible. These weapons are unnecessary for hunting or self-protection. Their only use is for murder. But common sense is not a feature of the gun-lovers.

  2. The purpose of goverment is to protect the country from outside forces. Not to provide everything for everybody.

    It’s funny hw liberals always TALK about free ths free tht but it never is pd for,sure you say it is but let’s be honest. Every state ran by liberals has the highest unemployment, highest homeless num, pensions tht the state cnt pay.

    For ppl tht say you stand for the constitution your the first to try and take our rights away..

    1. Thank you for your comments, Eve.

      You said the purpose of government is to protect the country from outside forces, which is partly true.

      Yet, the vast majority of America’s laws are designed to protect Americans from “inside” forces. Think of every law. There, are relatively few laws directed at “outside forces.”

      The Constitution’s entire Bill of Rights was written to protect Americans from their own government, not from “outside forces.”

      The Preamble to the Constitution reads: We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

      Note the words, “. . . “establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility . . . and . . . promote the general Welfare. . . “ These words indicate that the purpose of government is not just to protect the country from ‘outside forces,” but to improve the lives of the people.

      You seem to object to “free this and free that” (which) “never is paid for.” If you read the posts on this blog, about Monetary Sovereignty, you will understand that the federal government can pay for anything, while the states, counties, and cities often run short of dollars.

      That is why this blog recommends the Ten Steps to Prosperity for which the federal government could fund without extracting even a penny’s-worth of taxes.

      Contrary to your belief that liberals wish to take your rights away, most liberals I know wish to give you more rights:
      The right to free health care for you and your loved ones
      The right to avoid the pain of poverty
      The right to a free education, even through college
      The right to live in a decent home
      The right to avoid hunger
      The right to unfair imprisonment
      The right to be free from bigots
      The right to vote, and not have your vote taken away by gerrymandering or unreachable polling places
      The right freely to pursue joy and live life in a way that makes you happy, as long as you don’t do anything illegal or violate the rights of others.

      By contrast, the conservatives want to give you:
      The right to be unable to afford healthcare, be unable to afford a lawyer, be unable to afford good food and housing, to be uneducated, to be unable to vote and to receive a fair trial unless you are white, to lead an impoverished life, and to die early, but with a gun in your hand.

      I would be interested to know which rights liberals have taken from you.

  3. See, it’s like this. We Republicans are interested in hearing what Fauci has to say, and he has plenty of time to appear before us. But you Democrats have no right to talk with him, and anyway, he doesn’t have the time.

    And we’re scared out of our wits that he might tell the truth about something that Trump already has lied about.

    Understand?

    White House blocks Fauci from testifying at ‘counter-productive’ House hearing, Senate appearance still on

    The White House confirmed Saturday it is blocking Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease who has taken on a prominent role in the Trump administration’s coronavirus response, from testifying before the Democrat-led House Appropriations Committee about the pandemic next week.

    White House spokesman Judd Deere said “it is counterproductive” to have someone like Fauci, who is heavily involved in the government’s efforts to re-open the American economy and expedite a coronavirus vaccine, step away from those tasks and testify.

    “It’s not muzzling, it’s not blocking, it’s simply trying to ensure we’re able to balance the need for oversight, the legitimate need for oversight, with their responsibilities to handle COVID-19 work at their respective agencies and departments,” a senior administration official told The Washington Post on condition of anonymity.

    Deere did say the White House would work with Congress to find a more “appropriate time” for Fauci to testify.

    Fauci, who at times has dissented from President Trump on certain coronavirus-related matters such as testing capacity and whether some states are re-opening too soon, will reportedly still appear before the Republican-led Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee the following week.

    The “appropriate time” will either be “never” or “after the election so Trump’s lies aren’t disclosed.”

    This is known as conservative “freedom.”

  4. Trump and his followers are clearly a bunch of reckless idiots, and his essentially encouraging an armed uprising and civil war is far beyond the pale.

    That said, the lockdowns really don’t seem to be aging very well at all lately in any state, or country for that matter. While the loudest voices are the Trump nuts and Alt-Reich types, they are not the only ones who are pissed and want America to lift the lockdowns and reopen. In fact, in the UK, leftist Jeremy Corbyn’s brother apparently organized an anti-lockdown protest recently as well. While some countries have been doubling down, most have been at least starting to ease their lockdown policies, as are most US states lately.

    While it is true that a few outlier states like Georgia are perhaps reopening too quickly, most (even Texas!) are being a bit more cautious and doing it at least somewhat more gradually. (Hopefully over weeks rather than months.) And of course, seven states never did any real lockdown at all, preferring instead to implement moderate social distancing measures–kinda like Sweden still is.

    To be honest, I actually think Sweden is the most sane country in the world right now. One can see from the data that in terms of death rates they are about average in Europe, and while they are doing worse than their Nordic neighbors, they are doing significantly better than the typical locked-down country. Their economy is suffering, not least due to their dependence on exports to other countries, but is not completely annihilated like their locked-down counterparts around the globe. And the long-term effects of extended lockdowns are unknown at best, and may very well lead to more overall deaths in the long run.

    The horse has left the barn months ago, and if we wait for a cure or vaccine before reopening, we will never be ready. We have already flattened the curve, and managed to achieve its original goal of preventing the health care system from collapsing, and the peak is already clearly in the rearview mirror in many states and countries. Fortunately, according to the latest antibody surveys, we seem to be closer to herd immunity than we thought, likely just a few weeks away. Then hopefully this evil virus will finally “ghost” us for good after a few tough months, rather than string us along and “breadcrumb” us for years via multiple waves.

    1. If everyone could and would be masked, the lockdowns would be unnecessary, not because the masks protect the wearer so mcuh, but more importantly, because the masks protect the wearer’s neighbors.

      Unfortunately, when you have idiots like Pence going maskless in a hospital setting, the low IQ Trumpies cannot be trusted to wear masks.

      Rather than demanding that businesses shut down and large groups end, the government should create “free mask stations” everywhere, and mandate that every living person wear a mask when not in their home, or be arrested.

      That would end the medical and financial crises quite quickly.
