    Chief Justice Roberts, Justice Kavanaugh, and now SCOTUS nominee COVID Barrett were all Republican legal shysters working for Bush and the GOP in their machinations that led to the horrendous, undemocratic, purely partisan Bush v. Gore SCOTUS decision. Coincidence? Think again. The Republican fix is in for this election and any future contested elections for the foreseeable future. Bye-bye democracy, hello banana Republic!

    This is good analysis apart from the affirmation that you will never see him again. Imagine COVID aside, this guy would probably be reelected. The Mitch Mcconnels and other skin suits take a look at this Presidency and will say…… if this obviously corrupt draft dodging coward, with minimal intellect can so subvert the American government, think of what we could do if we put a smart corrupt guy in there? The right has conned the American people to be wary of the worker and to be trusting of the billionaire.

    Bush v. Gore, Citizens United, Shelby County v. Holder, Rucho v. Common Cause, Chief Jester Roberts smiling and nodding along while presiding over sham Senate impeachment trial, Assassination Goon B.S. Barr butchering the law, slaughtering justice, politicizing and weaponizing the DOJ. So, now, thanks to conservative Justices on SCOTUS, we have partisan Republican judges deciding elections instead of voters; a return to Jim Crow laws promoting voter suppression; unlimited dark money in elections buying off politicians; a lack of accountability enabling the Executive Branch to blackmail and coerce foreign governments into interfering in our elections, severely degrading our national security; and legalization of even the most egregious Republican gerrymandering. In essence, a deck stacked heavily in favor of corrupt, racist, anti-democratic Republican minority rule over the majority. It's why we lost all respect for these conservative Supreme Courts, the law, and the justice system in this country. Congratulations, Republicans, on turning our nation into a banana Republic, making America an object lesson to the world on how to destroy democracy!

    GOP has lost the popular vote in six of the last seven elections and yet appointed 15 out of the last 19 justices. Barrett would make that 16 out of 20 seats. The reason the president forgot to mention that (a) his judges cannot be permitted to be independent; and (b) that his judges tend to be wildly out of step with public opinion on so many of the topics he holds dear is that it would highlight what minority rule looks like, and why he cannot, in fact “let the people” decide with their votes in his upcoming election. A court determined to impose minority rule is in fact the playbook. It benefits big business, it benefits secret donors with considerable war chests, it benefits white supremacy, and it benefits Trump’s trailing electoral campaign. Quite simply, locking in the power of a minority through the courts is the political project of Trump and the Republican Senators who are equally eager to jam this nominee through before the election.

    The president introduced his Supreme Court pick—but stayed mum about the real reason he needs her.

    "Get back to being the healthy conservative party…get back to being the healthy liberal party…so we can get back to being the country we want to be." sighs This is insanity. Do people like this guy not get that Trump isn't some fluke. He is a symptom of two parties that have been extremely unhealthy for many poor and poor working class Americans. If they don't get their crap together there will be another Trump in the future. Morons!

    李辉林评论:你即使说:志愿军全军覆没,联合国军无一伤亡,还是否定不了双方签订的“维持战前状态的停战协议”,证明整个朝鲜战争在战略结果上双方是承认打了一个平手的。你们中国文人的粪瓢似的嘴巴是将任何客观历史事实都要随便篡改颠覆,都要以你们的嘴巴为准则?

    讲历史就不能带着政治倾向性,否则就是想将听众当傻子的骗子。硬要讲70年前的朝鲜战争是非、输赢?既然是苏联给朝鲜提供武器、中国应金日成要求将曾经帮助中共抗日的两个朝鲜族师返回朝鲜了。出于对等,美国就应该只为韩国提供武器装备、在全世界帮助韩国招募朝鲜族志愿军参加韩国保卫战或者统一战才正确。人家原来就是一个民族的国家,要统一不是战争就是民主,应该由人家自己选择及进行。由外国世界第一的强国打着“联合国军”旗号,将在外还不听总统的命令,擅自将炸弹扔到了中国边境上挑衅建国仅仅一年的中国。仗打得被动、糟糕、无理,才会被临阵撤帅。这是谁是谁非的基本问题。

    中美不论是从任何方面相比,谁强谁弱、还有可比性吗?就像成年人打婴幼儿童、热兵器对战冷兵器、现代人对付原始部落差不多。至于伤亡人数究竟是多少(随便你们怎么举数)?双方签署了“保持战争之前的边境状态地《停战协议》”!联合国军对付一个建政仅仅才一年的国家,仅仅只是打了一个“平手”?这在人类历史上是绝无仅有地一场教科文似地战争吧?

    要说不是新中国的人民普遍真实的感觉得到了地位平等、生存改善、文化精神解放,才绝对地信任愿意为这个政权献身的精神。除了毛泽东与其领导下的中国人民,还有谁敢参于这场战争对角?并取得如此结果?邓小平“挂社会主义的羊头、卖封建权贵资本主义的狗肉”早已经将中国人的人心丧失殆尽。要是说现在的中国人根本不可能还会有当年中国人的牺牲精神,解放军根本不会有当年志愿军的捐躯勇气,才是事物的不同真实本质性态。

    李辉林评论:你说秦帝国是一下吞并了六国,被撑死了?那么刘邦空手套白狼吞并那七国,使用秦朝的“中央集权封建制”革除“分封诸侯制”就没有被撑死?明明是秦始皇首创统一七国时间太短,还没有真正建立、巩固、完善政治制度,自己就突然中年离世了。你的为了统治利益集团共同利益的“理想主义者”实际还是一个放大了的个人主义者。这种“利益”从何处来?只有一条路——建立一种共同享受的政治制度“搜括天下百姓”。不过是中国几千年颠覆轮回封建统治文化制度地创新说法,将统治集团比喻成是一个“独家经营国家的上市公司”!可在现代文明制度社会里,怎么可能允许只有一个“挂社会主义的羊头、卖封建权贵垄断资本主义的狗肉”地“上市公司”存在呢?那还是一个按照文明社会逻辑规律运转地有公共社会制度、公正法律标准、公平自由竞争的吗?你的“上市公司”逻辑上只仍然会是继承前朝国民党的腐败撑死!而无节制地再腐败被撑死!接着让位另外一个新的“独家经营国家的上市公司”继续腐败撑死!你很狡诈且说教看似历史文化思想含量比较高,但你不是想让国泰民安,而是在教唆统治者和政客必须依靠你们千年以卖狗皮膏药谋生的封建文化奴才、狗腿子治国坑民。否则你们就有理由、而且有实力拥立另外一个“独家经营国家的上市公司”取代不识相、过了气的“腐败撑死的公司”!暴露了其人品不可信,心地阴险邪恶不善乎。“你可以說服我、收買我,但不要綁架我。”这句话是有点个性,仅仅是做买卖投机的个性。只要自己愿意,出卖自己的灵魂及出卖所有他人的一切,都只是自己个人的意愿了?你如果做警察、当兵都是要以自己提出的条件或开出的价码,才为替谁做事?取谁之命的前提先决了?

    说是习近平提出:要在2035年实行民主政治!这怎么就不对了?只是时间定得比国民党及蒋经国执政时间还要长,是表明中共政治文明化都比国民党更落后?我认为应该定到2027年才合适。而且还要拿出从现在开始的“民主政治进程规划”及实施落实兑现地政策法规。中国能够主动积极过度到民主文明社会制度,是将中国人人政治平等的基本人权还给了中国人,实际中共每一个人也都从中得到了解脱。

    You know what REALLY pisses me off most? It’s that all these Toxic Trump sycophants and acolytes have to KNOW at some level he is a grave security threat to the U.S. But, they don’t care, play dumb. They would sell out their country and souls for filthy lucre, fleeting fame that quickly turns to infamy, and empty promises. They lie, deny, deceive, divide, denigrate, diminish, and work to destroy our cherished Republic.

    GOP has gone rogue, doesn’t want to play by the rules in America, anymore. Republicans are all about constant deceit and hypocrisy, rigging elections, and rampant crony corruption.

    One would hope that his cabinet or the Republican Senate would have done the right thing and removed him. Or, that the Republican SCOTUS would have defended our Constitution, instead of partisan power grabs. In fact, it’s more than hope—those are the minimal basic expectation of our public officials. They failed themselves, and they failed our nation horribly. Because they are weak, and ignorant, and corrupt.

    Thus, we are forced to suffer another two months of a failed Presidency, a failed Senate, and a failed SCOTUS. While confident Trump would be defeated before the pandemic and ensuing economic collapse, his loss has since become a virtual certainty. So, that isn’t really about hope, either.

    What does give hope is that the majority of Americans reject Trump. There is hope that the end of Trump will mark the beginning of the end for the Republican cult. There is hope that out of this darkness will come the realization progress is vital to our future, and that reactionary conservatism stagnates and kills.

    In short, the GOP has become proto-fascist, bound by the ignorant Republican cult they created, and the fear, bigotry and hate they cultivated and nourished for decades. Fortunately, the cult is not the majority, so there is hope yet for America!

    “The problem at the heart of all this is a Republican cult built up over decades by plutocrats, the GOP, and right-wing media. Those Americans elected this pitiful, puerile President, and have continued to support him no matter what travesty he commits! The creators of the Republican cult have always been weak men, and now find themselves harnessed by those they sought to enslave, subject to the fickle whims of a moronic madman and the mob whose ignorance they relentlessly nourished and cultivated.”

    Conservatism has always been the endless, futile quest to justify greed, but the coin of the realm in GOP land is fear; it’s what they peddle, it’s what they traffic in, it’s what they carry in their pocket at all times. Then, they turn that fear to hate. And that hate is the poison killing them, America, and all of us. It’s the poison to which the Republican cult has become addicted.

    Republican cultism is the disease, Toxic Trump is merely the most visible symptom and but one carrier of that disease. It existed before Trump, and it will continue when Trump is gone—unless or until the problem is adequately addressed. COVID-19 is also a disease; but a virus is blameless, unlike those who engage in willful ignorance. America would have confronted and easily conquered COVID-19 disease, had America not already been diseased for so long with Republican tribalistic partisan cultism. Racism, xenophobia, homophobia, misogyny and religious bigotry were central to the formation of the Republican cult, and remain its lifeblood.

    The only thing been stopping the GOP cult from turning America fascist has been the long-held universal repulsion and rejection of Toxic Trump’s hero, Adolf Hitler, by Americans. Fortunately, the majority of Americans still remember that painful historical lesson many Republicans choose to ignore. There is hope that good will once again triumph over evil; love prevail over hate; common sense outweigh blind faith, mindless tribalism, and silly superstitions.

    Trump wasn't the cause of all these issues, he just brought to light everything that is wrong with America for years. Now everyone wakes up from their hibernation in the last 4 years. Add to that Covid. What a disaster. America will be in the history books as the country that spouted their country as being the best in the world, when in actual fact they never were. I think I will be long gone before America is a country they rest of the world respects. No one respects you now.
