Restoring The American Dream Turning Into A Nightmare

Restoring the American dream may turn into a nightmare for the Republican Party as our "new" alt-white-house's jingoistic sloganeering begins to falter in the face of realpolitiks.

UPDATED 10/21/2017 NYT, Kelly Delivers Fervent Defense of Trump Call to Soldier’s Widow and NewYorkMag, Trump’s Mindless Nihilism

It's shocking that any general would defend our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house, much less a distinguished general. No retired general should serve our  unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house. The only advice an active general should provide beyond their best analysis and assessment is that it should immediately resign the presidency.


It's clearly a misfortune for our nation that its electoral vote tally delivered power to our unstable, unfit, unwell, and unbalanced "new" alt-white-house, but its citizenry are not required to recognized or defend that power. In fact a strong case can be made that our citizenry has a duty to make sure that it's only nominally held until resignation or removal.


Sullivan's insights on how and why reactionism regresses a person's response to their current or future environment is worthy of a journal article or monograph. Why does regressing 350 million people into the past seem rational to a reactionary (and ironically a terrorist wishing for a caliphate) than responding to their current and future environment?

UPDATED 10/15/2017 Atlantic, Donald Trump's Impeachable Offense














Whereas Donald J. Trump stood beneath American flags on the steps of the United States Capitol on January 20, 2017, placed his hand on a Bible, and spoke these words:
I, Donald John Trump, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States; and will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help me God.
Whereas the Constitution of the United States reads in part, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

Whereas Trump has responded to news coverage he dislikes by advocating that the freedom of the press be abridged by bureaucrats and legislators; and by calling the press a public enemy and a target of his “drain the swamp” agenda...

This is sufficient, but wait there's more...much more...Atlantic, Donald Trump's Impeachable Offense.

"Kakistocracy is a term that was first used in the 17th century; derived from a Greek word, it means, literally, government by the worst and most unscrupulous people among us. More broadly, it can mean the most inept and cringeworthy kind of government...Moreover, Republican leaders, especially Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have blown up most of the remaining norms about how laws are developed, debated, and enacted...but the problem is deeper and worse when ineptitude joins with venality and recklessness, and when the stakes are far more than baseball pennants." --Atlantic--

The "Freedom Caucus" gets it precisely wrong. There is no need to distinguish between the hurricane and cowboy-cannibal-capitalist destruction costs when upgrading, rebuilding and restoring Puerto Rico's  electrical grid, telecommunications, and infrastructure. Just fund all costs necessary to modernize, upgrade, rebuild, and restore Puerto Rico's electricity grid, telecommunications, and infrastructure.

Pretend that the "Militarist Wing" of the Republican Party has ordered the "Freedom Wing" of the Republican Party to pay for all costs for clean-up after the "Cowboy-Cannibal-Capitalist Wing" of the Republican Party has invaded, looted, and destroyed Puerto Rico!

Puerto Rico et al. should not suffer because the Republican Party is fast morphing into the "Party of Madness, Mayhem, and Misery"!



†† The $36B mentioned by the House Speaker is for all hurricane relief ($5B for Puerto Rico)! That amount is only a small part of what Puerto Rico requires, not to mention Texas and Florida! Total 2017 hurricane relief spending will be in the several hundreds of billions of dollars!

How ironic that nations are beginning to "route around America" as they look to Germany et al. for benchmark economic liberalism! 

Pursuing state economic power at the expense of the individuals' welfare is difficult for democracies to reconcile as TE Gregory reminds us in his 1931 article:


"... As I understand it, economic nationalism regards it as the duty of the State to foster the economic power of the State rather than the economic welfare of the individuals composing the State. Of course it is necessary in democratic communities to reconcile the welfare of individuals with the ends of the State itself, and therefore it is sometimes argued that policies which further the economic power of the State are also policies which further the economic welfare of individuals. A large part of the ideology and dialectic of modern protectionism is concerned with trying to prove that the policies which further the power of States as such are also policies which further the well-being of individuals as individuals. But I think it is characteristic of the attitude of those who believe in economic nationalism that, when there is a conflict between the welfare of individuals on the one hand and the power of the State on the other, they say one ought, taking the world as it is, to choose deliberately, as a matter of rational calculation, the power of the State rather than the welfare of the individuals as the end to be pursued..."--Economic Nationalism, Royal Institute of International Affairs 1931-1939), Vol. 10,  No. 3 (May, 1931), pp. 289-306, TE Gregory--

When States pursue economic nationalism it does not end well. (an interesting review of economic nationalism by David Levi-Faur).

China's restrictions on capital outflows has much impeded Angbang Insurance Group et al. from financing overseas deals like 666 Fifth Avenue making it a highly unlikely funding source. One suspects our "new" alt-white-house is compulsorily disclosing a lot more than tax returns.


California's senior octogenarian senator's expression of hope for our "new" alt-white-house is very likely hoping that our nation does not endure years of fighting for a more diverse nation. To state it nicely, the facts belie the senior senator's fanciful expression of hope that a septuagenarian white racist president and supporters can or will change.

Moreover, unless corralled and removed it's highly likely that our "new" alt-white-house will continue perpetuating the Republican Party's antiquated "southern strategy" for perceived personal and political gain.

Instead of hoping our white racist president and supporters will change Congress must make it "perfectly clear" that they intend to corral our "new alt-white-house, pending its removal and replacement. Understandably many in Congress are declining to publicly state that our "new" alt-white-house is unfit lest they create an irremovable duty to remove such presidency and the political impossibility of doing so!

  • collect her gold watch for a job well done over many years; and 
  • return to the admiring residents of San Francisco, CA; and 
  • focus on teaching and preparing young aspiring women for congressional careers as principled and effective politicians.

Young senators and representatives able to immediately declare any pussy grabbing delusional racist wannabe president "unfit" for the office of dog catcher, much less the Executive Office of the Presidency of the United StatesMaybe some day the average age of a junior female senator will be well below that of the junior senator from California?
