PARTY FEALTY.

Way back in 2016 Donald Trump had a big lie in his back pocket. It was about how the ACA was a social security benefit and was therefore being paid for from the taxes of those who worked for the benefit of all the undocumented immigrants and people of colour. The lie was ACA had to go and would be replaced by another system designed by the Republicans which would be much better. The PINO (President In Name Only) did not allow for the fact that many Republican voters liked the ACA and didn’t want it to end. They got their wish since 4 years later the plan still stood and no other plan had been put forward to replace it.

There were lots of lies in the intervening period but in 2019 a new virus was found, or It would bed more accurate to say found us. At the start of 2020 a lot of Countries were in the grip of this Coronavirus (Covid19), some like Italy were in real trouble. It didn’t take long for the virus to spread, carried back by people who had been abroad. Soon enough the U.S. was struggling with the number being admitted to hospital and dying in huge amounts too. PINO told everyone this was nothing and there were only a small number of cases and it would be all over in a week. Currently many weeks later the number of cases is just short of 30 million and the number of deaths is at 543,000+.

In 2020 there was the Election during which PINO attempted to cripple USPS (United States Parcel Service)having given the job of managing it to one of his donors who had no experience. That was meant to hinder the delivery of postal ballots in time. He lied and told has base that Republicans were being refused permission to invigilate the count at various sites which was easily proven to be wrong but not easily got out of his base’s head. Lots of little lies and complaints led up to a big one. Even before the voting was over PINO claimed that votes were being stolen from him via illegal ballots. These claims were all checked and found to be untrue. The invigilators were still there. At the end of the count PINO was now ex-PINO and it was time for the Big Lie, that the election had been stolen and he was still PINO. Voter Fraud was responsible. Over 60 court cases later and all but one claim were thrown out for lack of proof. The one incidentally, showed claimant errors of less than 20 which weren’t enough to alter the result. He sulked and refused to acknowledge the loss and nor did he congratulate the winner and even refused to offer the usual courtesies to an incoming President. This lie was maintained through January until on Jan 6th after pointedly inviting a White Supremacy group (The Proud Boys) and his base to come to Washington to help overturn the counting of Votes in the Capitol. They came, and with a bit of encouragement stormed the building looking for Mike Pence with a hanging noose and for Nancy Pelosi. There were various injures from the day including one officer lost an eye and another one died. Some of these insurrectionists have been arrested since that day. Those in charge have not- so far.

I’m not going into the differences in policies between the two camps but at the moment the Democrats have just passed a huge package to help those suffering because of the Covid19 restrictions, that’s employers and employees as well as the unemployed and those with rent arrears. It’s a very comprehensive package. They’re also trying to get the minimum wage increased from $7.25 to $15.00 an hour, currently not one Republican will cross the floor and vote with the Democrats for this .Instead the emphasis seems to be on a number of states who are trying to push through changes in the law which will allow them to disenfranchise a number of groups, Blacks, Latinos, Indians, Native Americans from voting at all in their states. Like the shouts of fraud and cheating made by PINO and by them who still follow him, in their hypocrisy they are cheating too. It’s hardly a fair election if some of your opponents aren’t allowed to vote.

But to the crux of this. All of the Republican voters have heard the lies. All of the Republican politicians have heard the lies. Pino is currently telling the RNC not to use his image to collect money, he still likes the GOP though. Please send the money directly to him instead. How, with all that’s known about PINO could anyone want him back again? How is it he has the fealty of millions of people when he’s quite capable of using any donations to pay off his bar bill rather than put it to it’s proper use. Can there be anybody strong enough to stand against him and win to be the Republican nominee for President if he does stand in 2024? Can somebody else create enough good policies to appeal to the people and make them a viable party again? Perhaps they’ll have to in PINO is in prison at that point.

Hugs to all

    Half the people in this nation do not know any better than to believe the garbage they are spoon-fed by the likes of Fox ‘News’, NewsMax, and OAN. They are undereducated, not deep thinkers, and will buy into whatever they are told, as long as they are promised something at the end of the day. If the U.S. has the stupidity to allow themselves to be fooled by this ‘man’ yet again, then the people of this country will deserve what they get, which will be an authoritarian rule by the wealthy. Your idea of PINO and his band of merry men in prison is the best option by far.

    To a lesser degree, this is happening here, too. The government lies and cheats, breaks the law, and wastes billions on contracts with companies run by its mates, which are incapable of delivering. Yet the public happily continues to support them, because the papers (mostly) tell them to. There are already signs that human rights and freedoms are to be made weaker by upcoming legislation. It’s known as kakistocracy, with the emphasis on cack…

    EXCELLENT post!

    There’s one thing that can be said for the PINO, his “influence” wasn’t limited to the states. He made sure his thwarted viewpoints were spread far and wide. No doubt it’s been difficult for him now that he can’t spread his insults and lies as easily as before. How sad. Too bad.

    David, more so-called leaders in the now trump party need to support the voices that tell the truth and call the former president on the carpet for his deceit and sedition. These heroes speak up at great risk and know they are, but do it anyway. Why? Why would someone speak out knowing they will get death threats? Keith

      It must take courage to break away from the Trump poodle parlour but both courage and sense not to have joined in the first place. How he is now is nothing new and his success at being him has depended upon how little anyone has done to rein him in. But I think that sooner or later they’ll have to peel away from him and decide what kind of party do they want, and if the answer is what they’ve got now, then he’ll destroy them all and the GOP in the process. It appears the RNC might be trying to make the break but Trump is trying to keep the GOP.

    Re inefficiency during Covid-19 I would think PINO is not the only one with ultimate responsibility but rather the individual states have the jurisdiction as to how they will handle and control its spread etc and they do not need to comply with any instruction or the lack of it from PINO. In all this the States carry or must carry the main burden. I’m basing this opinion on what is happening in Australia; the Federal Government has no jurisdiction over what States do with Covid control, it can offer help etc but not impose it, the States call the shots…And the US has both “Republican”and “Democrat” states, it would be interesting to see results of a study that compares whats happening on the ground with Covid numbers and restrictions in each, whether there is no difference or whether there is. US certainly has and has had a most serious problem with it…Good pst David

      Thanks so much, Ina. I’m sure we’ll see a breakdown on the different ways the individual States dealt with things and how it reflected in deaths. I think many Republican stares took their lead from PINO and the Democrats from medical guidance as recommended by their Governors.
      Huge Hugs
