Eight Easy Punches Democrats Need To Land On Trump


Recommended Posts

Here’s what Democrats should be saying about Trump's horrendous record...

 

1. His decision-making is unhinged and dangerous—Trump’s decisions are uninformed, impulsive, made by Twitter feed, and without consulting Congress or federal agencies. Military officials struggle to contain his irrationality and petulance, which risk senseless war. He ignored warnings about the dangers of withdrawing from Syria, wouldn’t read NSC talking points, and didn’t discuss US security objectives before calling Turkish President Erdoğan and effectively greenlighting Turkey’s incursion into Syria. He launched steel and aluminum tariffs while “unglued” over Hope Hicks’ testimony on Russian interference, Kushner’s security clearance downgrade and Sessions’ handling of the Mueller investigation.

 

2. He gave aid and comfort to our enemies --   When Trump withdrew US troops from Syria, Russian and Syrian troops filled the vacuum and  ISIS regrouped.  Russia replaced the US as the most influential power in the Middle East. Trump drove Turkey to partner with Putin in pushing out the Kurds. Now Turkey now may be less likely to use its military power to deter Russia from invading NATO allies on its border.

 

3. His corrupt foreign policy -- Trump and Erdoğan both got something out of the Syrian withdrawal:  Erdoğan got the opportunity to annihilate the Kurds; Trump coddled a dictator of a country where he has extensive business ties, including Trump Towers in Istanbul and $400 million invested in them by a Turkish family. Withdrawal was also a huge favor to Russia and protected Trump’s financial interests there, including his pursuit of Trump Tower in Moscow and the “disproportionate” amount of Russian investments in his portfolio. Congressional testimony suggests Trump golf courses laundered money for the Russians – a sleeping dog Trump doesn’t want Putin to wake. Flouting bipartisan opposition, Trump lifted a sales ban imposed on the Chinese telecom giant  ZTE for cybertheft, spying and cyberattacks on the US. China promptly awarded Ivanka twelve trademarks and loaned $500 million to a resort in which Trump is a partner. Trump vetoed an act of Congress blocking an $8 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia, which is responsible for the murder of Khashoggi and the brutal war in Yemen. Trump previously admitted the Saudis spend millions on his businesses: “Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much.”

 

4. He’s degraded U.S. diplomacy --  Trump cost America the global leadership it’s enjoyed for 75 years. He disrespected and fired ambassadors, including Marie Yovanovitch and Jennifer Williams, leaving foreign governments wondering who’s next and on whom they can rely.  He slashed the State Department budget and involved its leader Mike Pompeo in the Ukraine scandal, trashing the Department’s reputation.

 

5. He didn’t create economic growth; he jeopardized it – Trump came into office riding 100 months of job growth, and GDP growth was greater under Obama. Except in wartime, the federal deficit and national debt always shrink during times of growth. But Trump’s reckless tax cuts and high spending ballooned both. He continues to rely on shaky projections to paint a rosy economic picture. But if interest rates rise, borrowing costs will skyrocket and recession will hit hard. When warned about the consequences for the economy of high debt, he shrugged, “Yeah, but I won’t be here.”

 

6. He’s been a disaster on trade -- Trump abandoned the Transpacific Partnership, calling it a “disaster” and “rape.” It’s inconceivable he even read it.  TPP was a pact with eleven Asia-Pacific countries, excluding China.  It would have given us favorable access to markets in a region that represents nearly 40% of global GDP. It eliminated 18,000 tariffs on American goods, strengthened labor standards and provided negotiating leverage over China.  China filled the vacuum by negotiating its own trade agreement with former TPP countries, which excludes the US and jetisons many TPP protections.

 

7. He put America last, not first – Trump squandered America’s global influence while boosting China’s and Russia’s.  He's watched as China developed military, trade, and political alliances with its Belt and Road Initiative, building railways, pipelines, highways and fifty economic zones across 70 countries. China could soon lead the world’s largest economic bloc. In Latin America, Trump cut $500 million in aid, imposed sanctions and denigrated them as “craphole countries.”  Now Russia and China are influencing political decisions and threatening our relationships there.

 

8. He’s broken his promises --   Trump supporters mistakenly believe he’s done what they elected him to do.  But he promised “no cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid,” and now seeks to slash them all.  He promised to replace Obamacare, insure everybody and lower premiums.  But Trumpcare would raise premiums 35% to 94%, and repealing the individual mandate would leave 13 million more Americans uninsured.  He promised to denuclearize North Korea, and claimed the process was underway after the first summit with Kim Jong-un. But North Korea is building more sophisticated nuclear capabilities than ever, and is believed to have chemical and biological weapons.

Trump’s impeachment acquittal reinforced the perception that he's made of teflon, and trying to hold him accountable for his actions won’t dent his support.  Democrats shouldn’t acquiesce in that perception; they should disprove it by hammering on his disastrous record.

"More Americans Now Identify as Republicans Than They Do As Democrats"

 

"According to the polling, conducted on January 16th-19th, 30% of American identify as Republicans. 27% identify as Democrats. The largest category consists of independents, who form 42% of registered voters. Independents have consistently made up the largest category of American voters for decades."

I got your 8 punches right here, 16 great great grandparents and their 4 sons and 4 daughters living in the space of 24/7 as eternally separated as conceived to remain part of an ever changing population of this species so far and until reproductions don't exist again from now on, whenever that event comes around next.

Picture-278.jpg

Violet is night where the planet faces away from the solar system core, the sun. Yellow and orange are the seasons at dawn and spring, orange is fall and dusk. Green not shown is daylight.

 

Pink and blue are male and female reproductions to the lifetimes present each turning poing DNA compounds ancestrally into next added lifetimes so far in the center. 7 axses, 3 perpendicular  manifests 6 degrees of separation around 8 corners of intelelctual triangulating lifetime to honor concepts of thought life cannot be limited to eternally separated in the same space all the time each has adapting to the moment here. the 4 diagonals show the 6 halves of the whole as humans deny life for all it ever remains in plain sight ancestrally and historically repeating the same error until driven to self elimination from the food chain.

 

Center vertical axis of mineral content being this planetary position,  2 horizontal are gaseous and liguid molectular parts of water seeks its own level and air surrounds the surface of the planet. periodic table of chemical constants  of atomic cohesion to inorganic forms shaped as universally present, and the organic results never the same in this atmosphere so far.

 

spinning, orbiting, revolving, spiraling, evolving perpetually balancing the ever changing total sum added from now on.  Please tell me eternity is just an intellectual theory and eternal life originates beyond the moment here?

Ignore this some more,

 

What separates a politician from a representative of the people in your own words from your own brain, not recite what humanity says to repeat by fixed vocabulary where words have multiple conflicting interpretative meanings depending on application of their useage?

 

Let me give you mine first. Polticians like priests get people to believe what real isn't actual and factual manifestations of context practiced ancestrally are facts to die for saving a greater expectation life is more than just being a simple reproduction to an ever changing population now.

 

representative just keeps things honest between generations adapting to the same space at the same time. <This is what the Constitution was about. Not sustaining doubt until extinction the rest of the global population practiced since the dawn of societal evolution.

 

Your social mental imagination never thinks that way and it shows in every syllable you project in cyberspace and most likely where ever you are positioned in real time being alive now. That flows to everyone I watch and respond with. Misery creates realities to justify their denial.

The way the media explained it it sounded like a human four corners game
