Fascism Lurks In The Open

 Fascism Lurks In The Open

I watched the last Republican debate on Thursday, as I have all of them. I don’t trust social media, on-line publications, or even the newspapers I read to report an event anymore. There’s way too much misinformation out there. I choose to witness things that are happening, if at all possible. How else can I make important decisions?

And this presidential election is drastically important. It could be a tipping point in so many areas—not only for the survival of Democracy, but the survival of the human race.

Yes, that’s how important it is.

Although I’ve never been a fan of Megyn Kelly, I have to say, she solidly stood her ground against that misogynist group of men. Ted Cruz tried all but punching her out to ruffle her and it did no good. She was ready for them and she didn’t give in.

Not once.

Cruz at one point even threatened to pull a Trump and walk out. We all knew he was too self-serving for that.  Nothing but an empty threat. I’ll even bet Trump regretted not being there—narcissist that he is.

You might guess that I’m definitely not a fan of Fox News, but they are starting to learn how to conduct this kind of event.  Along with their questions, they showed the audience TV clips where these candidates actually changed positions on issues with the ease of a snake slithering through the forest. The videos went back and forth with what these men said they “believed” at any given time. Their rhetoric changed with the mood of each crowd. And when faced with their lies, they merely lied some more.

To think I thought Mitt Romney was awful.

The fact that Donald Trump tried to bully the event by not being there—who can get along without The Donald—really backfired. For a bunch of politicians pandering to extremists, these men had more of an actual debate without all the ridiculous Trump facial expressions and speech patterns that reveal nothing of substance.

Face it! Donald trump is a fascist, and so is Ted Cruz. They make no bones about it. If we’re not careful, this country could end up in real trouble.

Trump and Cruz parrot Hitler and Mussolini—right down to the gestures and hate-filled speech designed to rile people who hate Blacks, Jews, Muslims, Mexicans …  anyone not Christian. If you are lily-white, a “religious” fanatic, they are seeking your support and your vote. And I’m sure you will give it to them.

Voting is the only key to stopping them. Every one of us has to get to the polls and vote or these men, or people like them could come into real power and lead us to total destruction.

Think about it.

If there is a Cruz or a Trump in the White House, there will be fighting in the streets, mass killings the like of which we have not seen since the Civil War.

Our country is in real danger. For those of you who think these men are merely clowns—forget it! None of the antics of Trump or Cruz are amusing or funny. These men are not buffoons—they mean business.

Make no mistake. They are a real threat to you and our democracy.

 In This Fast-Paced Political Thriller:

Washington politicians and U.S. healthcare executives are conspiring in a sinister cost-cutting scheme to legalize selective euthanasia for the seriously ill and dying, primarily for the poor and powerless.

If secret legislation can slip through the quagmire of Congress, it will diminish the annual deficit by billions, if not trillions; catapult corporate healthcare profits; and get an unpopular President re-elected.

What the powerbrokers don’t anticipate is an in-your-face, militant seniors advocacy group becoming suspicious and hires an aggressive, semi-retired investigative journalist to expose the behind-the scenes manipulations.

                                                The deadline:  Seven days.

Can Ted Yost stop the power brokers? Or will arson, attempted murder, blackmail, and kidnapping stop him?

                                  Some Reviews of THE KILLING VOTE:

 Ambition, greed, hypocrisy—and murder. Bette and JJ Lamb have taken the battle over medical care and fashioned a droll, lightning-paced political thriller with more plot twists than Washington has scoundrels. I thought of the great Ross Thomas as I hummed through the pages. Prepare to laugh–and get ripping mad.

“The Killing Vote starts off with a bang, literally, and never lets up. Bette Golden Lamb and J.J. Lamb pull no punches in highlighting behind the scenes politics. Gripping.”

WE THE PEOPLE …

 

picture corporations rule

Donald Trump is an idiot. Ted Cruz is an idiot. Yet they are the two Republican leaders in the polls in the race for the Republican nomination for president.

We call Donald Trump a fool, buffoon, entertainer. Ted Cruz, likens himself to a messenger from God.

Make no mistake, these are calculating, evil men. We need to take them very seriously.

Donald Trump talks about using nuclear weapons and sending more soldiers to war when he’s never spent a day in the military. His money shields him from pretty much anything you have to go through to survive.

This “buffoon” thinks Mexicans are rapists, all Muslims are terrorists. He would have nothing to do with Iran or any other country that didn’t do exactly as he demands.

Don’t be fooled. He’s not joking with you, and he’s getting you to listen to him spout Fascism.

Ted Cruz makes negative remarks about New Yorkers and there’s no doubt in my mind that he’s wants you to believe that liberals and, of course, the Jews, who are all very rich, are causing the decline of America. Well, here’s a short list of “New York values:”

Carnegie Hall

Metropolitan Opera

Lincoln Center

MOMA

Whitney Museum

Guggenheim Museum

Broadway

Off Broadway

You might not care about any of these places, but they are representative of American values to the rest of the world.

And let’s remember that maybe the most important thing about New York is its people, its fantastic diversity.  Walking in the city, you will see not only every culture, but every income level represented.

Having been raised there, I can say that they get along with each other pretty damn well.

And just to join the chorus of those who don’t believe Ted Cruz is even eligible—being a natural born citizen—to run for the office of the presidency.

I say: A leading Birther gets smacked with Karma.

Both of these men tout fascism and hatred and distrust. Why would any country leader want to sit down and talk to them?

Can you imagine Donald Trump, who seems to hate anyone who is not an American, trying to talk to people around this diverse world we live in?

Remember, these men who tout fascism, would represent our county. If this means nothing to you, read about Germany, Italy, and Spain in 1930-40.

And as for the rest of the Republican candidates running for President, most are trying to eliminate Social Security, healthcare, food stamps, children’s assistance programs, money for our veterans, and any other socially responsible program that exists. Where will that money go to? To fund the military-industrial complex.

If we’re not very careful with whom we put in office, we could be the starving immigrants running to Canada … maybe even Mexico.

A NEW WORLD

                                            A NEW WORLD

Now that 2016 is here, it’s time to view the world not as it was, or what we might want it to be—but what it has become.

Every person on our planet must finally open their eyes to climate change and actively protect Mother Earth so life in our world can survive. Climate change is not a fictional concept or a science fiction fantasy. It is our now reality.

Some say it’s too late.

But with action, maybe we can slow down some of the devastation and hope that enlightened humans will find ways to off set some of the worst damage to our home.

We have to listen.

Maybe the destruction can’t be reversed, but maybe we can take the necessary steps to cope with it and hope to survive.

Renewable energy is there for us and has been for a long time. Now we have to tuck moneyed interests aside and try to save life on earth.

All of us have to stop murdering animals. To the people who kill other living beings for sport—you are not conservationists, you are murderers. That you see no value in other beings is the kind of fallacy that will destroy all humans as well. We cannot afford to act solely as individuals. Every one of us is woven into a continuum of life. We belong to each other.

All living things matter.

Stop destroying plant life for commercial gain. The forests are not only beautiful, they give you the air you breathe. If you think we can somehow manufacture air to survive—forget it.

Forget it!

Without the oxygen the forests and plant life provide, we no longer exist. Earth will become a dead rock among the lifeless gazillions floating in the vastness of an endless universe.

Human carnage.

When will we learn to live in peace? When will we stop trying to dominate each other with our religions, our land grabs, our energy dominance, our political differences.

Keep in mind that the primary elections are this spring—it’s time to weed out the flat earth society members. We have to leave the past behind, think about our tomorrows.

Vote!

The internet has shown every one of us what the whole world is like in an instant. It’s not a pretty picture.

Do we need to crumble and totally fall apart before we get the message?

It’s simple:

We have to care about what happens across the world—we are wrapped around each other in one way or another. We are all a part of the wheel of life.

We can make 2016 a real beginning.

Work for universal harmony, peace, and respect for every life form.

We can make every year a HAPPY NEW YEAR
