The Truth About Trump... and the Trumpublican Party...



























A small voice against the pyramid of lies and delusions spewed by a miserably FAILED ex president. Suffering from extreme narcissism and an ego the size of  Texas one can only pray that Donald J. Trump is ultimately held accountable for the J6 2021 insurrection at the capitol and the resulting deaths.

The following is an excerpt from and article by 

The posts have alarmed disinformation experts, who fear that Mr. Trump’s incendiary remarks could further inflame political tensions. After the Mar-a-Lago search, an armed man tried to enter an F.B.I. office and was killed by the police.

Tens of millions of Americans believe that the use of force would be justified to restore Mr. Trump to the White House, said Robert Pape, a professor of political science at the University of Chicago, citing a poll conducted last year.

“You can see how easy it’s going to be for Trump to trigger a lot of these incendiary responses with incendiary posts himself,” Mr. Pape said.

A spokesman for Mr. Trump, Taylor Budowich, did not respond to a request for comment about Mr. Trump’s posts.


There is a great deal more truth BELOW the FOLD. DJT is a dangerous man attempting to destroy our democratic republic by inciting distrust, anger, and hate between American citizens. A pathological liar DJT cannot be be believed or trusted. His egocentric personality and total disregard for reality makes him a threat to every freedom/liberty loving American.


The party DJT hijacked into supporting his ill fated and destructive presidency, the old GOP, now the Trumpublican party is right there on board with him and his desire to destroy our republic and institute authoritarian one party rule. He and the Trumpublican party are the real ENEMIES of the PEOPLE. 

What happened in Germany in the 1930's is what DJT and the Trumpublican party have in store for America should DJT and his party ever again gain control of all branches of government.

Fear for our liberties and hard fought for freedom. Enemies within are attempting to take all away from you. Stand firm and tall. And DEFEAT the Trumpublican candidates in the 2022 mid term elections.

Vote Democrat To Save America!

Vajrayana Buddhism in the West:...

Buddhism is a tradition focused on spiritual liberation; it is not a theistic religion. The Buddha himself rejected the idea of a creator god, and Buddhist philosophers have even argued that belief in an eternal god is nothing but a distraction for humans seeking enlightenment.

Some Things To Consider...



Prevent Fascism and Authoritarianism In America... Vote in November... Vote Democratic... Across the Slate

 


An admission of guilt. 

A further acknowledgement of the complicity of gop congressmen who where on board with overthrowing the duly elected government on J6 20021.

A chilling reminder of the 1930's in Germany.

An explicit belief  by Trumpublican authoritarians that conservative White Supremacist's know better than you or I do what is best for America.

Trumpublican fascism has taken control of the old GOP.

Mid Terms 2022 will determine if America remains a FUNCTIONING democratic republic or begins the slide into authoritarianism.

Definition of fascism

1often capitalized a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition
2a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial controlearly instances of army fascism and brutality

Authoritarianism



American democracy is in crisis and forces both within and outside the government are working for the destruction of our democratic principles and our republic.

If you care about America, your children and grandchildren's future be sure to vote the mid term elections this November.

Vote DEMOCRATIC and vote the authoritarian fascists of the gop out of office. By LARGE numbers.

Anything less will likely result in some iteration of J6 2021.

Sadhguru On America - Political Leadership...


The Message Today Is... Vote In Large Numbers - Or You Let the Extremes Determine Political Reality For You...

 


Political polarization is the defining feature of early 21st century American politics, both among the public and elected officials. As part of a year-long study of polarization, the Pew Research Center has conducted the largest political survey in its history – a poll of more than 10,000 adults between January and March of this year. It finds that Republicans and Democrats are further apart ideologically than at any point in recent history. Growing numbers of Republicans and Democrats express highly negative views of the opposing party. And to a considerable degree, polarization is reflected in the personal lives and lifestyles of those on both the right and left.

Here are 7 key findings on polarization in America today:

How to Stay in the Present Moment...

 

Tibetan Buddhist Meditation...

 

Dhammapada 235-240, 244-248, 251-253...

 


235. Like a withered leaf are you now; death's messengers await you. You stand on the eve of your departure, yet you have made no provision for your journey!

236. Make an island for yourself! Strive hard and become wise! Rid of impurities and cleansed of stain, you shall enter the celestial abode of the Noble Ones.

237. Your life has come to an end now; You are setting forth into the presence of Yama, the king of death. No resting place is there for you on the way, yet you have made no provision for the journey!

238. Make an island unto yourself! Strive hard and become wise! Rid of impurities and cleansed of stain, you shall not come again to birth and decay.

239. One by one, little by little, moment by moment, a wise man should remove his own impurities, as a smith removes his dross from silver.

240. Just as rust arising from iron eats away the base from which it arises, even so, their own deeds lead transgressors to states of woe.

244. Easy is life for the shameless one who is impudent as a crow, is backbiting and forward, arrogant and corrupt.

245. Difficult is life for the modest one who always seeks purity, is detached and unassuming, clean in life, and discerning.

246-247. One who destroys life, utters lies, takes what is not given, goes to another man's wife, and is addicted to intoxicating drinks — such a man digs up his own root even in this world.

248. Know this, O good man: evil things are difficult to control. Let not greed and wickedness drag you to protracted misery.

251. There is no fire like lust; there is no grip like hatred; there is no net like delusion; there is no river like craving.

252. Easily seen is the fault of others, but one's own fault is difficult to see. Like chaff one winnows another's faults, but hides one's own, even as a crafty fowler hides behind sham branches.

253. He who seeks another's faults, who is ever censorious — his cankers grow. He is far from destruction of the cankers.

Wang Wei, Buddhist Poet...

 


Drifting

September skies are clear to the distance
Clearer still so far from humankind.
A heron by the pool, a mountain cloud,
Either of them makes the mind content.
The faintest ripples still and evening’s here.
The moon turns silver, and I dream,
Tonight, leaning on a single oar,
Drifting without thought of going home.

Buddhist Wisdom... Brings Inner Peace

 

Dhammapada #129 - #134, #136 & 137, #141

 


129. All tremble at violence; all fear death. Putting oneself in the place of another, one should not kill nor cause another to kill.

130. All tremble at violence; life is dear to all. Putting oneself in the place of another, one should not kill nor cause another to kill.

131. One who, while himself seeking happiness, oppresses with violence other beings who also desire happiness, will not attain happiness hereafter.

132. One who, while himself seeking happiness, does not oppress with violence other beings who also desire happiness, will find happiness hereafter.

133. Speak not harshly to anyone, for those thus spoken to might retort. Indeed, angry speech hurts, and retaliation may overtake you.

134. If, like a broken gong, you silence yourself, you have approached Nibbana, for vindictiveness is no longer in you.

136. When the fool commits evil deeds, he does not realize (their evil nature). The witless man is tormented by his own deeds, like one burnt by fire.

137. He who inflicts violence on those who are unarmed, and offends those who are inoffensive, will soon come upon one of these ten states:

141. Neither going about naked, nor matted locks, nor filth, nor fasting, nor lying on the ground, nor smearing oneself with ashes and dust, nor sitting on the heels (in penance) can purify a mortal who has not overcome doubt.

Info to Help Fight Capitalist Corporate Greed...

 

Research and keeping an open mind can save you hundreds of dollars and stick it to corporations who relish overcharging you to grow their own wealth at your expense.

These Retailers Are Getting Away With Overcharging Their Customers

As long as self-interest and greed remain the driving force for corporations and capitalists this nation will continue to suffer under the yoke of predatory capitalism. The system designed and managed solely to ensure the financial security and wealth of the few.

Ignorance and greed are the two biggest negative energies this nation must eventually overcome. Failing to overcome these two negative energies will only result in furtger and more extensive suffering.
