A lucid look at politics

There’s a new blog on the web, “Lucid Politics” The latest in what will hopefully be a thousand beacons of resistance to America’s phony Russian Obligate President, the Alt-right and the oligarchs who plan to rapidly dismantle American systems and protections that took citizens a century of hard fought effort to win.
From reading DC Petterson’s first few posts, I think it will be offering up some provocative and helpful reading. The goal is no less than to build an entirely new nation wide grassroots movement of rationalist and other faith-based souls who have awaken to the clear and present danger in the air these days. Only through creating an informed, engaged, proactive community will we stand a chance to withstand the coming attacks on our values.
This is for real.

https://lucidpolitics.com/2016/11/26/baconing-and-russian-hacks The entire piece is worth reading, but within the story is this interesting passage:
Russian (and former communist) propaganda has traditionally worked exactly this way: The more you “report" something negatively, the more the negative is true. Trump and supportive media outlets adopted the technique and reveled in information gained from the illegal Russian hacking (as well as many “fake news" stories that evidence suggests were generated by Russian intelligence operations) to make exaggerated claims (“Hillary wants to open borders to 600 million people!") or to accuse Clinton of illegality, corruption and, ironically, treasonous behavior.
What is particularly valuable here is the advice about how we, as resistance fighters within the nation soon to be ruled by banana Republicans, can move forward. The techniques used by Russia have worked, did work, and will continue to work. The more something is reported negatively, the more it is believed. Repeated accusations of illegality, corruption, and treasonous behavior will have an effect–particularly because, in Trump’s case, they’re all true. Any attempt to look deeper into Trump’s malfeasance will yield, not debunking as it did with all of Russia’s fake news stories about Hillary, but further evidence of ever-uglier abnormality. ...

This Is Not Normal ! “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." – Edmund Burke America is under siege. The foundations and values of America are being threatened in a way they have not been since the middle of the nineteenth century. Patriots must not remain silent in the face of an extreme rightward lurch in American governance. Go read this, an excerpt from the book, “They Thought They Were Free; The Germans, 1933-45", by Milton Mayer]. By the time the danger is obvious to everyone, it’s too late. By the time the fall of reason is clear to all, it has already happened. You will find this vital passage: ...

Wonder if Trump is going to try and get the military to take an oath of personal loyalty to him?
It’s pretty clear that the US has come as close to Germany in 1933 as it has ever been. This idea of liberty somehow being a given right ignores how it was achieved…by the incredible loss of life over the many conflicts the US has fought for its existence and moral soul.
Having a sexual predator, tax dodger, liar, Russian stooge in the Oval Office brings the fight for liberty right into the homes of every American. Remember that US officers and civil servants take an oath to protect and defend the CONSTITUTION… not the President. The US has never been about the glory and absolute power of any one person, it’s been about a constant rejection of that kind of social sickness.
Reject Trump for the complete phony he really is…

Thoughts repeating

Electoral College Can "Dump Trump" on Dec. 19, But Will They? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uC9Qie83mdo https://democrEC.org

Seems to me there’s more than enough grounds for the Electoral College to reject Trump as President.

Donald J. Trump said on Wednesday that he hoped Russian intelligence services had successfully hacked Hillary Clinton’s email, and encouraged them to publish whatever they may have stolen, essentially urging a foreign adversary to conduct cyberespionage against a former secretary of state.

Yes, this looks likea taste of what's to come. Trump is a clear and oresent danger to the United States. He proves it every time he opens his mouth.
