Hot Damn! Folks are Beginning To Realize the Dangers of Our Disaster potus...

Fifty-five per cent of those asked said they were in favour of the US president’s conviction by the Senate, a figure which has shot up from 48 per cent the week before.
Meanwhile, the number of people against Mr Trump’s removal has dropped to an all-time low, according to the MSN poll.
On Christmas Day, 40 per cent were opposed to the Senate voting to convict the president, who has been impeached over his dealings with Ukraine and an alleged subsequent attempt to obstruct congress.
The gap between the two views has become much wider since last week, when there was little to divide them (48 per cent in favour of Mr Trump's removal, 47 per cent against).
The percentage of respondents who neither supported nor opposed conviction also grew.
David Rothschild, an economist at Microsoft Research, said the numbers of people shifting from opposition to removal to "don't know" was significant. “When you follow polling daily, you learn people rarely make big jumps from Opposition to Support,” he said.
“This polling is a clear sign that [the] Republican policy of complete obstruction is not selling well to [the] voting public.”

When the news is good it is REALLY GOOD!!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to All

Luke 1: 76-79 And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him, to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace.” 

America's Demagogue and Narcissist in Chief...

“She hates the Republican Party,” Trump said of Pelosi, predicting that she would lose her speakership. “She hates all of the people who voted for me and the Republican Party. … She’s doing a tremendous disservice to the country.”

Is it supersizing that DJT speaks of those he disdains as hating him and HIS republican party? For the Dotard anything less than total fealty to him is simply unacceptable and, in his feeble mind, treasonous. He is decidedly a man who incapable of accepting any criticism or admonishment for his plenitude of irrational statements and actions.

Fact is DJT is, as always, projecting HIS hatred for Nancy Pelosi and the entire Democratic party. Trump is a narcissist incapable of recognizing his many character failings. He is unable to see himself the way 60% of Americans and a majority of the world see him.

He IS a very sick individual and ALL indications are he is steadily and rapidly deteriorating. A frightening reality. Especially since he has the nuclear launch codes and an evermore compliant group of sycophants standing behind him. 

It is Trump and  HIS party that is doing the disservice to our formerly Great Nation. 

Thanks for NOTHING Donald J. Trump.

Rationalization and or Hypocrisy...

An editor at The Christian Post has abruptly quit the publication after it aligned itself with Donald Trump as part of a spiraling evangelical Christian civil war. Another evangelical newspaper, Christianity Today, slammed the president as “immoral” and called for his removal from office last weekend, prompting a backlash and recriminations within the evangelical community. Journalist Napp Nazworth, who has worked for The Christian Post website since 2011 and sits on the website’s editorial board as politics editor, tweeted: “Today, rather abruptly, I was forced to make the difficult choice to leave The Christian Post. They decided to publish an editorial that positions them on Team Trump. I can’t be an editor for a publication with that editorial voice.” Trump called Christianity Today “a far-left magazine,” after its attack on him.  (SOURCE)

Fact is the Evangelical Church has sold its soul to Satan. To rationalize, as the Evangelicals have done, that the corrupt immoral Donald J.Trump is anything but pure evil is to ignore the reams of documented evidence that shows he stands against almost everything Christ is said to have represented. If not everything.

Perhaps Evangelicals supporting Trump who rationalize his actions as being in the service of God will find themselves in a special "heaven" alone with their cult leader Donald J. Trump.

 Wouldn't that be nice? 

Oh, almost forgot. Kudos are in order for any Evangelical that is true to their faith and the teachings of Christ. There are too few who do. Unfortunately.

Life Force...

Does spirituality really matter?
Spirituality IS Life. Spirituality, in it’s fundamental meaning, is consciousness in it’s broadest and fullest sense, it IS what you are truly made of. It is not matter, but it MATTERS. It is the sole matter for why you exist as a human being

As The Nation Turns...

“A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.”

Huxley harkens back to the idea of slaves loving their servitude. Once again, if they trade their freedom for stability and are vulnerable to the “mind manipulation” of their society, people quickly morph into slavery who are held to their servitude not by force, but by a love of their position and the stability it provides.

Our modern GOP...

During an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, the Majority Leader said that “everything” he does “during this, I’m coordinating with the White House counsel. There will be no difference between the president’s position and our position as to how to handle this, to the extent that we can.” 

 A pseudo- conservative dystopian society for America?

An example of your typical Trumpian cultist. Ripe for the plucking by Trump and the GOP.

AG Barr, Master at Deception...

There will be somewhere in the vicinity of 40% of the population that will declare the following false.Or that it just doesn't matter because things are great with the economy percolating and employment booming. As if that's ALL that matters. For those folks decency, truth, honesty, fidelity to the Constitution, and other such lofty ideals really aren't important.

Believing the truth doesn't matter, or if it does it really isn't all that important are the two defining "values" of the trumpian cultists. When the nation's Attorney General shows support for Trump's lies and deceit by mounting his own propaganda campaign in defense our American justice system is threatened. In a big way.

President Trump is openly telegraphing that he fully expects his attorney general to validate one of his biggest lies: that the real crime in 2016 wasn’t Russia’s sabotaging of our election but rather the decision by law enforcement to investigate it.
New public comments from William P. Barr provide Trump with ample grounds for being confident that Barr will deliver for him.

But Barr’s latest claims about the Russia investigation rest on a serious misrepresentation that has not gotten the focus it deserves — and is more pernicious than it first appears.
In a much-discussed interview with NBC News, Barr criticized the Department of Justice’s inspector general for concluding that the FBI’s launch of an investigation into Russian interference — and potential Trump campaign coordination with it — had a legitimate basis.
Barr’s full interview is now online, and it’s worse than you thought. It whitewashes away a crucial aspect of the I.G.’s conclusions in a way that’s easy to overlook but serves Trump’s political needs in deeply disingenuous fashion.
One key argument Barr makes is that the FBI’s decision to launch that investigation had a “very flimsy” basis that lacked “sufficient predication.”
Barr casts this as rooted in deeply held pro-democracy principles. He claims “the incumbent government used the apparatus of the state” to “spy on political opponents,” in a way that could have affected “the outcome of the election” and thus posed a “danger to our free system.”
Barr claims there was never any serious evidence of “collusion” and excoriates the FBI for having an inadequate basis for launching the investigation, given the “very potent powers” the FBI has at its disposal. “At the end of the day,” he asks, “is what you’re relying on sufficiently powerful to justify the techniques you’re using?”
And Barr insists the inspector general’s analysis of this was “very limited,” vowing that his own forthcoming review would take a much more thorough look at the investigation’s genesis.

Barr’s deceptive whitewash

In saying those things, Barr is rewriting the story of 2016 in a subtle but consequential way. He’s implying that the FBI’s initial investigation was only motivated by what it had learned about the Trump campaign’s intentions with regard to coordinating with Russia’s electoral subversion effort.
But Barr is leaving out crucial facts and context. In fact, when the FBI launched this investigation, it had already developed an awareness that Russia was undertaking this attack on U.S. democracy — separate and apart from any Trump campaign involvement with it. This was a critical reason the FBI launched its investigation.
The inspector general’s report is very clear and emphatic on this point. As it recounts, at the time the FBI opened the probe in July 2016, it was already aware of extensive efforts by Russia to influence the election.
This didn’t just include an FBI awareness of extensive Russian efforts to hack into Democratic computer systems. As the I.G. notes, it also involved “numerous attempts to hack into state election systems,” including “confirmed access into elements of multiple state or local electoral boards.”
As the decision was intensively debated among top intelligence officials, the I.G. notes, what was already known about the Russian attack was critical. Officials told the I.G. that the new information about the Trump campaign precipitated the investigation, but only on top of the fact that Russia was already “targeting U.S. political institutions” and trying to manipulate the “U.S. democratic process.”

Barr’s cynicism helps Trump

It’s galling in the extreme that Barr would piously claim concern for preserving the sanctity of our elections while hand-waving away the massive outside disruption effort as a central reason the investigation was legitimately launched.
This also serves numerous Trump political purposes. It helps Trump make the fact of that Russian attack disappear — and by extension the betrayal of our country his campaign engaged in when it did actively work to coordinate with and benefit from it.
This has been a central Trump goal for years: Son-in-law Jared Kushner dismissed the Russian effort as “a couple of Facebook ads,” and campaign manager Brad Parscale insisted Russia “never” helped Trump.
In fact, this was a serious and disruptive attack on our democratic processes and on liberal democracy itself. Barr is helping make all that go poof.
When you have your Top Cop (the USA AG) and the President of the United States spreading propaganda and lies that would make Joseph Goebbels proud you ought to realize we have a very big problem. A problem that if not excised, and excised quickly, our grandchildren and future generations will live in a very different, less free society than we have enjoyed.
Our founders are surely spinning in their graves. Or would be if that were possible.

Wisdom From Persia...

Rumi quote born with wings

Rumi quote breaking your heart

Take someone who doesn’t keep score, who’s not looking to be richer, or afraid of losing, who has not the slightest interest even in his own personality: he’s free.

The universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you already are.

In each moment the fire rages, it will burn away a hundred veils. And carry you a thousand steps toward your goal.

The Present, Awareness, Spirituality -vs- Religion...

In the interest of Reason...

… which is not to say there is no such thing as ethical spirituality.

Faith, believing in something for which there exists no direct proof, is indeed an INDIVIDUAL choice one makes. Or not.

Spirituality is enhanced when one is in the present, free from discursive thinking. Which is to say aware. Thinking is not being aware.

Religion, as it is generally understood and accepted in the west today turns ones focus away from being present and sets it squarely on what someone a couple millenniums ago (or longer) was hawking.

350 Mental Health Professionals Concerned with Trump's Mental Health, Dangers to the Country...

Trump's precarious mental state  is something 60% of the nation has recognized and innately understood for some time. His temperament  has growing increasingly volatile as the volume of Trump misdeeds continue to grow, the result of the impeachment inquiry.

A group of mental health professionals led by a trio of pre-eminent psychiatrists is urging the House Judiciary Committee to consider Donald Trump’s “dangerous” mental state arising from his “brittle sense of self-worth” as part of its inquiry into whether to approve articles of impeachment against him.
“We are speaking out at this time because we are convinced that, as the time of possible impeachment approaches, Donald Trump has the real potential to become ever more dangerous, a threat to the safety of our nation,” said Yale Medical School Professor Dr Bandy Lee, George Washington University Professor Dr John Zinner, and former CIA profiler Dr Jerrold Post in a statement which will be sent to House Judiciary Committee members on Thursday.
The statement will be accompanied by a petition with at least 350 signatures from mental health professionals endorsing their conclusion.
All three psychiatrists have said they are willing to testify as part of the impeachment inquiry.
The statement warns that “[f]ailing to monitor or to understand the psychological aspects [of impeachment on Mr Trump], or discounting them, could lead to catastrophic outcomes.”

Sound Advice and a Warning From President Obama...

President Obama's even steady influence certainly is needed by the Democratic party. A party that is wading into the deep and troubling waters of socialism/communism. Communism is a total failure and socialism has its problem with extremism every bit as much as conservatism does. Lets hope President Obama can exert enough moderating influence to insure Trump's defeat in November 2020.

He hasn't put his thumb on the scale for any one candidate in particular. But in two different speeches this month, he has made clear that presidential hopefuls would be wise to avoid moving too far to the left if they hope to win back the White House in 2020.
Some party strategists and operatives say that by throwing the weight of his legacy and influence into the simmering ideological debate between the Democratic Party's progressive and moderate wings, the former president has the potential to reshape the dynamics of the primary race.
His latest remarks came last week as Obama met with party donors in California, where he urged Democrats to "chill out" about the primary contest and prepare to rally behind the eventual nominee. But he also appeared to warn against calling for too drastic of change.
"When you listen to the average voter - even ones who aren't stalwart Democrats, but who are more independent or are low-information voters - they don't feel that things are working well, but they're also nervous about changes that might take away what little they have," Obama said.
For some Democrats, Obama's remarks reinforced their concerns that the primary field has lurched too far to the left and that the party may be barreling toward a loss in 2020 unless it can unite behind a moderate nominee capable of appealing to a broader swath of voters in the general election.
"I think that to some extent Obama is the canary in the coal mine," said Dick Harpootlian, a former chair of the South Carolina Democratic Party who is supporting former Vice President Joe Biden's presidential bid.
"He's warning Democrats that if you buy an agenda that is not relevant or salable in November, you're guaranteeing Donald Trump a second term."
Hope for  the best, that the party listens to Obama's warnings, or PREPARE for another Trump victory followed by MORE ultra conservative judicial appointments.

Happy Thanksgiving!...

Happy Thanksgiving to all as we count our many blessing and look forward to continued success and prosperity in 2020

Image result for pictures of thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday in the United States, and Thanksgiving 2019 occurs on Thursday, November 28. In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.

With the single exception of The War Between the States. The Union prevailed because its cause was JUST and RIGHT.
Just as today impeachment of #45 is both JUST and RIGHT.
