Donald Trump Confessed to THIS Crime but Americans Are More Interested in Something Else
The Elections are over. Joe Biden won both the Electoral College Votes (306 - 232) and the popular votes by 6 million more than Trump. Donald Trump has yet to concede. Trump believes he can pull on America the same trick he has for decades in his private life, which is to run out the clock on his opponent who would run out of money in litigation. The outcome of this elections marks the beginning of the end of Trump's life of cheating others. Irrespective of what he does, the nation will welcome Joe Biden as the 46th president of the United States. Joe will be sworn in on January 20, 2021 officially putting an end to Trump's era of chaos and division What's shocking however is the fact that Donald Trump has confessed to having committed crimes and is now contemplating the idea of "self pardon" This is series 5 episode 1 in which we talk about why in the world Americans are more interested in finding out whether Trump is entitled to self-pardon than holding him accountable for his crimes.

Genius Ways to Steal an Election
I said more times in this podcast (and my daily broadcast) than I care to count that Donald Trump would not be re-elected. You wouldn't know that the elections are over; Donald Trump has not conceded, his supporters are still protesting and the Republicans in Washington are either silent, overtly supporting the president effort to undermine democracy or simply shrug off the predicament Mr. Trump puts the incoming president into. Regardless, the nation welcomes Joe Biden as the 46th president of the United States. Trump is done but it will take generations to unroot trumpism which has manifested itself in the form of the sheer number of people who voted for Trump again in this election We owe it to the country, to our children to help the new administration achieve its agenda. This is series 4 episode 4 in which we take a look at voters' fraud, a claim Trump has alleged happen in all the states he has lost.

Supporters of Donald Trump who listened to this podcast could not have possibly been surprised. I said more times than I care to count that Donald Trump would not be re-elected.

Donald Trump Is FINISHED
Supporters of Donald Trump are still hopeful he can land a surprise win like he did in 2016. He CANNOT. He CAN'T. He WILL NOT. The 2016 surprise was as much a surprise to Donald Trump as it was to the country, the world even. It had to do with nothing that Donald Trump or his team did to win the 2016 general elections. People who worked in Trump's campaign began to send their resumes out, knowing darn well there was no possibility Trump could win. If you are able to read between the lines, they knew nothing was done to warrant a win by Donald Trump So, it was a surprise! A pleasant surprise for the Trump's team but an enduring nightmare for the country as a whole. To suggest Mr. Trump can land another surprise is a wish at best. Although this time, those who've worked in his campaign would like to see a victory but they all rely on Trump's vile personality to attract as many gullible people to vote him back in office. The rest of the country is calling on God to deliver us from the evil self-serving ego-maniac who has held the country hostage for almost four years now. We believe that even if Trump' supporters were to sell their souls to the devil, Mr. Trump cannot land another victory, even given the amount of cheating he is trying to do. It's over for Donald Trump. It's time for him to start packing. U-Haul is waiting... This is series 4 episode 2 in which we explain clearly why the Elections are over although the date is a few hours away.  We believe Mr. Trump will lose both the Electoral College and the popular votes in landslides.  Feel free to stop by The People Branch website where you will find many interesting articles about many different topics to choose from

Donald Trump Reads the Writing on the Wall
Is it over for Donald Trump? The very fact the question has to be asked should already provide the answer. However, Trump's new fixer Rudy Giuliani recently dropped a bombshell - October Surprise it's called - timed to chip away at Biden's lead over Trump. Pieces of the explosion are still floating around. In the last presidential debate, Donald Trump brought it up in the hope of reviving the same malicious trick he used on Hillary Clinton in 2016. And following the debate, he's floated the idea that Joe Biden must have profited from his son's - Hunter Biden - dealings with Ukraine and China.  Although intelligence officials suggest the bombshell has all the hallmarks of Russian making, it's not having the effect Mr. Trump hoped for. It would take a few days to assess the actual impact of the explosion; so far, the aftermath is negligible. The rest of the country is calling on God to deliver us from the evil self-serving ego-maniac who has held the country hostage for almost four years now. We believe there are not enough Machiavellian moves Trump can make to change what's already in motion. There are not many people who would fall for the same lies he used in 2016.  This is series 4 episode 1 in which we urge American patriots to vote Donald Trump out of office and encourage others (friends, family, colleagues, acquaintances) to do the same.  We believe Mr. Trump will lose both the Electoral College and the popular votes in landslides.  Feel free to stop by The People Branch website where you will find many interesting articles about many different topics to choose from

Can Rudy Giuliani Bombshell Change the 2020 Race?
Trump's fixer Rudy Giuliani dropped a bombshell - October Surprise - timed to chip away at Biden's lead over Trump. The news is mostly about Biden's son Hunter Biden. Pieces of the explosion were crafted to hurt Joe Biden's campaign. It's making the round in the news!  Political pundits, especially Trump' sympathizers are all over it seeking to breathe life to what seems another Russia's attempt to meddle in our elections process. Would Trump and company succeed to repeat 2016? Not likely! The rest of the country is calling on God to deliver us from the evil self-serving ego-maniac who has held the country hostage for almost four years now. We believe there are not enough Machiavellian moves Trump can make to change what's already in motion.

It probably is but... Don't tell Trump supporters the 2020 elections are over; you would enrage them.  Can their anger change the outcome? Not likely! There are not enough devil in hell to ensure a Trump's victory in November You see, there is a sizable chunk of the country who have a great deal of common sense not to fall for the same lies Trump used in 2016.  This is series 3 episode 2 in which we explore the probability of Trump losing both the Electoral College and the popular votes in landslides.  The gloves are off.  Per the latest polls, Joe Biden is leading in most major battleground states; he is even tied with Trump (45% vs 45%) in Texas as well as in Arizona. The most recent poll from Fox News puts Biden 53% to Trump 43%. The likelihood of a reversal is very unlikely...

Can Trump Win A Second Term? - Series 2 Episode 3 Explores
Trumpublicans - Republicans who support Donald Trump - are "praying for it".  Trumpublicans in general are baffling; they seem unable to grasp the simple fact that an individual who possesses none of the characteristics of a leader should not serve as president of the United States, and yet they are gung ho about re-electing him. Fortunately, there is a sizable chunk of the country who have a great deal of common sense not to fall for the same lies Trump used in 2016.   This is series 2 episode 3 in which we continue to explore the possible outcome of the 2020 elections. We took the gloves off. Per the latest polls, Joe Biden is leading in most major battleground states; he is even tie with Trump (45% vs 45%) in Texas as well as in Arizona.

Cops - Otherwise Known As Criminals with Badges
With the shooting of Jacob Blake in the back, seven times, by a police office in Kenosha, WI on August 25, 2020 in the shadow of another brutal murder of a black man George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis, MN just a few short weeks ago, protests erupted as angry and tired blacks constantly subjected to those types of treatment by police officer. There are two very distinct camps which always emerge whenever a police officer murders a black man Most Democrats (elected officials and civilians alike) would raise their voices against the action by the police officers Most Republicans would either stay silent or try to pin the blame on the victims. It is without doubt that Republicans are anti-black; they are not just complicit of blacks being victimized regularly, they also pass legislations which guarantee that will continue to happen without any repercussion to those who continue to subject blacks to those types of treatment.

Return IGNORANCE For A Full Refund
Ignorance is defined in the dictionary as a lack of knowledge; it's the deliberate ignorance that becomes a danger to a society. Whenever the word is used, it is most likely used within that context JFK said that "the ignorance of a single voter in a democracy impairs the security of us all". Ignorance is indeed something everyone should thrive to get rid of. Stupidity is the crown fools proudly wear to advertise their ignorance. The word is defined in the dictionary as a "behavior that shows a lack of judgment". The behavior of Trump' supporters is all the more baffling in an era of such influx and abundance of information, which begs the question. Is Stupidity an incurable disease?

And yet, despite the mountain of evidence Donald Trump represents the greatest threat this country has had, despite facts he does not give a rat ass as far as the wellbeing of his supporters, despite irrefutable proof he is stupefyingly incompetent, millions of Republicans continue to support him, to defend him and some to even suggest he is the greatest president the country has had.

Most Republicans Give No DAMN About Blacks' LIVES
The protests across the country following the release of a video which shows officer Derek Chauvin with his knee on George Floyd's neck for over 8 minutes while three other officers stood there watching Floyd's life being snatched away. The atrocity of the murder is nothing new; after the civil war, blacks were chased much like wild animals, gunned down, their bodies left to be consumed by animals or decomposed. These murders are the direct result of policies, legislations and laws designed specifically to put blacks in those predicaments. Will there be a different outcome this time? Across the country, businesses in various industries have been looking at ways to change the culture of discrimination. Already guidelines have been put in place to combat this plague. While this is happening, Republican lawmakers gathered in Washington on Thursday, June 25, 2020 to discuss areas of the protests that can be criminalized. Those GOP lawmakers are calling on FBI to arrest protesters they labeled terrorists. Republicans have always proven to be anti-black (see The Republican Party Is A Haven for Racists), thus anti any reform that would validate Blacks have been wrongfully dealt with. The question that was asked before “Will there be a different outcome this time?” is still relevant in light of the Republicans' effort to muzzle the protests.

IGNORANCE - the Biggest Threat to Society
For a very longtime - if not throughout our existence - we've clung to the idea that ignorant people are uneducated or in the best case scenario ill-educated. As such, we've always given a pass to "well educated" individuals even when it is obvious their statements, their arguments, their theories are completely deprived of any logic. Such bias lends credence to those individuals who have exploited the social status to dumbify others. You can see the impact on Fox News's audience; you can see the devastating effect on Donald Trump' supporters. The impact, the long lasting effect to our society will be felt in many future generations. The question which continues to baffle us here at the Fourth Branch is: why are Republicans not smart?

Tara Rease Sexual Assault Case CLOSED
A few months ago, Tara Reade dropped a bombshell; she accused Joe Biden of having sexually assaulted her. Joe Biden denied it ever happened. Usually, sexual harassment and/or assault would boil down to she says/he says unless there is proof (eye witnesses, documented behavior, etc). More often than not, the individual accused of sexual assaults is engaged in that pattern of behavior. Women, several women would speak about their respective experience with the individual accused of such. In the case of Tara Reade, it seems, she is the ONLY ONE Joe Biden would have sexually assaulted if one believes her story. We discuss in this presentation the many reasons we believe Tara Read lied about ever having been sexually assaulted by anyone.

Get Rich OR Die Trying
December 31, 2019 was the first day the Trump administration received notification from the World Health Organization (WHO) of the presence of a contagious virus in China. On January 7, 2020 WHO notified all the countries in the world about the spread of the virus and encouraged each individual country to take steps necessary to prevent the entry of the virus in the respective countries as well as measures to cope with the outbreak in the case it's already in. In the next three months, Donald Trump ignored every piece of advice given to him in regards to preparation for the outbreak. As late as March 3, 2020 Mr. Trump mocked the Democrats for showing concerns about the spread of the virus. Mr. Trump referred to Democrats urging him to begin making preparation as a hoax at a rally in North Carolina. Today, May 7, 2020, there are over 1.2 million people who have been infected and approximately 75,000 who have already lost their lives. For reason that continues to baffle the most naive minds, Trump' supporters believe he is doing a fantastic job... The past few weeks, they took to the streets to protest the lockdowns which prove to have saved hundreds of thousands for being infected or even lost their lives.  Feel free to stop by The People Branch website where you will find many interesting articles about many different topics to choose from.

As of our last broadcast, the number of individuals infected with the CoronaVirus has surpassed a million. As of this podcast, the scientific community has yet to announce a cure for the virus. In the meantime, areas that were previously considered to have recovered from the spread (South Korea, China) have seen upticks in the number of infection. It is now feared that there may a second wave of infections threatening those who were considered safe. Scientists have been working around the clock to rush a vaccine in; the closer they believe they have gotten to understand the virus, the more frustrated it's become to have discoverd another aspect which was previously unknown. Here in America, we have a president who believes his job is to hold rallies, venues in which he can attack everyone who criticizes him. The crisis has deprived him of such opportunity but that has not changed any aspect of his character. He stills is the vindictive individual who cannot mince words, who wants recognition for doing what the job demands. He paints eveyone as he is, a fraud, someone who is looking to defraud others. He has accused health professionals of hoarding the resources they so desperately need to do their jobs. It is in this moment of crisis it is the most obvious that half the country, the Republicans, have no clue how to pick a competent leader.  The United States of America is screwed.

The Casualties: Fear, Panic, Paranoia, Resignation...
In our last podcast regarding the Corona Virus, we looked at how much the world has changed.  a) Financial fallout felt across the globe b) human casualties were rising with no end in sight c) the scientific community was working at neck breaking pace to find a cure d) panic, fear, paranoia set in Two weeks later, nothing has changed; well, a lot has changed. The whole world is now infected and there is still no vaccine. Is Corona Virus here to stay? Should we simply get used to the idea?

Corona Virus Next Door
Since the last podcast regarding the Corona Virus, the world has changed.  The financial hit felt across the globe due to the virus outbreak is only second to the rising human casualties with no end in sight. As of this podcast, the scientific community has yet to announce a cure for the virus. In the meantime, areas that were previously considered CoronaVirus free are in full panic mode. For good reason. While health experts caution people NOT to panic and prescribe measures to protect oneself, the scientific community has yet to hint at the possibility of a cure; meanwhile increasing new cases of infections across the globe have been reported and fatality rate is also in the increase. To make matters worse, researchers have revealed a new strain of the virus which is considered more aggressive and deadlier. Don't rely on the Trump administration which is as of date the most incompetent in the history of America What then is the solution?

Is It Time To Panic About the Corona Virus?
Since the last podcast regarding the Corona Virus, the world has changed.  The financial hit felt across the globe due to the virus outbreak is only second to the rising human casualties with no end in sight. As of this podcast, the scientific community has yet to announce a cure for the virus. In the meantime, areas that were previously considered CoronaVirus free are in full panic mode. A couple days ago, Italy had just 3 cases of individuals infected with the virus; as of this publication, eight people succumbed to the virus and more than 138 are now confirmed infected with the virus. Similar situation exist in many other parts of the world. With lack of leadership in the US government, one can only imagine what the world would be like if the trend of the virus continues. Is there hope a cure will be found soon? One can only hope so.

The World Wants China to Keep the Corona
The world, the civilized world, well the world which believes in a system of democracy, human rights and equal justice has had a love-hate relationship with China. The governments believe China must be held accountable, punished even in order to pressure the Chinese government to abide by democratic norms. Ironically, businesses in those democratic countries love to run to China for cheap labor; translation, those businesses want to make more profits. It's difficult for either side to gain any ground on the other; both sides tend to lose if they strain the relation, a dilemma governments have been trying to figure out how to deal with for many decades. In the meantime, China has been exporting cheap goods to every corner of the world while supplying cheap labor to businesses of developing countries. With the breakout of the corona virus, the world's calculus has changed; everyone hits pause on Chinese goods for fear of importing something extra for which the price could be very exorbitant.  No one wants to get the virus, even if it's free.

Interested in being conned?
Chances are you don't know anyone who would want to be conned, not even for fun. Okay, maybe for fun. But seriously! Beside being humiliated to have been conned, one would feel ashamed to have been taken for a ride. Most people would react angrily, a few would even kill the perpetrator(s) if found. We've seen professional con men such as the famous Adrian Lester aka Mickey Brick in Hustle along with his team. We've all enjoyed watching a good con being performed but that's where our love for con ends.  Ironically, most Republican constituents do not just get conned by the Republican Leaders, they offer themselves to get conned over and over and over. Don't believe me? Every single Republican who supports Donald Trump knows he is a liar, a crook, a con man, a cheat. Need I say more?

A Valueless Constitution
Republican Senator Lamar Alexander said in regards to the impeachment trial "I worked with other senators to make sure that we have the right to ask for more documents and witnesses, but there is no need for more evidence to prove something that has already been proven... Put differently, GOP Senators acknowledge the president of the United States Donald J. Trump is guilty of what he is accused of but they do not care to hold him accountable. While Republican electorates may rejoice, the country just suffered the biggest affront to the Constitution not in the hands of a foreign government but rather by the very people, the Republican Senators who took an oath to defend that very constitution. The most obvious question any logical individual should now ask: what is the point of the Constitution?  If you're interested in making stops between here and there, feel free to stop by The People Branch website where you will find many interesting goodies to choose from.

Impeach (and Remove) Him!
The word IMPEACHMENT is the most dreaded in the English language for public officials here in the United States. It's not just because of a possible negative outcome for the individual under impeachment; it's what it entails in a negative outcome. The accused will never be allowed to hold public office again. As if that's not enough punishment, the impeached individual can be prosecuted afterwards once removed from office. There is really no incentive for public officials to engage in wrongdoing or criminal activities. Yet, the 45th president of the United States has acted almost exclusively as if he's begged to be impeached. We should not however be under the impression it's a waste of time to impeach a president engaged in wrongdoing; Donald Trump's attitude has everything to do with the Republican Senators NOT performing their constitutional duty as required in the Constitution, something which has emboldened Trump to continue acting in the Oval Office like a mob boss, a thug. Unless the Republican Legislators change their behavior to abide by the Constitution, Donald Trump will continue to believe Being Impeached is a joke.

Lie to Me
Most would cringe at the idea of associating ourselves with liars. And yet, science proves most people are attracted to liars, even subconsciously. We know for instance for over a decade now that Fox News - most of its hosts -  have distorted the truth at best, lied to the audience in general. And yet, as of date, Fox has held the spot to be the most watched in the nation. Can anyone come up with any other logical explanation for fascination with Fox? Science is very rarely wrong. It should then be no surprise to anyone that Donald Trump has commanded such faithful crowds of supporters. Lie to Me is a very appropriate title to explain the phenomenon in the country today.

Dumb and Dumber
In the movie Dumb and Dumber, the writer managed to paint two characters - both really dumb - with one dumber than the other.  Naturally, the audience is entertained effortlessly. It seems the dumbness of the two main characters has overshadowed the stupidity of the supporting actors which would leave smart individuals scratching their heads. Was the writer trying to point to the two main characters? Was he trying to bring out the confusion of many caused by the dumbness of the two? Was he trying to confuse the audience? Irrespective of the objective, it's just a movie. Much less one can say about the state of affairs in Washington. The dumbness of the president and the Republican Legislators is not funny; in fact, it's dangerous and should alarm the whole country. This is not a movie. The consequences are real.

Is There Good in Rubble?
Rubble is a soft word which carries a lot of weight (pun intended). Victims of devastation such as earthquake, hurricanes, bombardments in war have described being buried under piles of rubble as a very scary experience.  Survivors would suffer for a while - sometime through the rest of their lives - of claustrophobia ( a type of situational phobia where an individual struggling with great fear  of small or closed spaces.) Flashbacks of how it happened will continue to haunt most. As such, no one would poeticize rubble. Is it any different if the rubble in question are political?

Is Unfulfilled Raped Not Punishable?
There is no decent individual - in any country or era - who would suggest there is some positive in rape. In the Republican circle however, a rapist who is stopped from fulfilling the despicable act is not guilty of anything.  How low has the Republican Party fallen when it comes to decency?

For the most part, we are all very familiar with the expressions containing the word "blonde"; she is blonde, I am blonde and any derivative are usually used to point to "lack of intelligence".

Can EXTORTION Be Legal?
You may have seen the movie series "Legally Blonde", the gist of which attempts to expose the silliness and the lack of intelligence of a blonde who, at the end, managed to outwit and outmaneuver seasoned and very smart politicians and as well as famous and reputable legal minds all the while managed to put a smile on her audience. Not bad for someone considered NOT to be smart! Here, we look at a scenario which seems to suggest that Legal Extortion is equally NOT that bad. In light of Donald Trump being impeached for attempting to bribe a foreign government, his Republican defenders seem to cling to a notion that legal extortion or bribery is not a crime. But no one is laughing. Judge for yourself whether you are willing to go along with your Representatives on this one.

Dumbfounded Still
It is near impossible to conceive a scenario in life that cannot be explained in many different ways; that's both a curse and a blessing for humanity. One aspect of mankind that is  helpful is the ability to use logic (commonly called common sense) and to rely on facts to understand our environment. But what happens when individuals deliberately try to dumbify others? That's what Republican constituents have been subjected to in the hands of their elected representatives.  The rest of the country is dumbfounded.

Integrity Is Not in the GOP Core Values List
Dwight Eisenhower, the 34th president of the United States, said that the "Supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity", a statement which exposes the Trump administration as completely deprived of any quality for leadership. No one can make a case for Donald Trump or any Republican Legislator as having the quality of a leader, and yet million constituents continue to provide their support for the Republican Party.  It is baffling!  If you're interested in making stops between here and there, feel free to stop by The People Branch website where you will find many interesting goodies to choose from.

Then the pilgrims massacred, completely wiped out a whole nation of people; the objective was to seize their lands. Now, the Republicans are all in on Donald Trump shredding our Constitution, trampling the rule of law and destroying the fabric of our society.  And yet, the nation "girdles" to rejoice on a day which should have been a day of reflection.

Is Donald Trump Worth The Sacrifice of Our Nation
Since the beginning of the presidency of Donald Trump, the Republican Party as a whole - elected officials and constituents alike - except for a few have dedicated effort and resources to defend Donald Trump for all his wrongdoings.  Notwithstanding the fact that the Legislators - be it Democrats or Republicans - are mandated by the Constitution to hold the executive branch accountable, Republicans who've always claimed to be Christian, to have family values have proven beyond a shred of a doubt they have no problem with a criminal in the Oval Office.

It would baffle even the most renowned psychiatrist if he tries to understand how millions of people can be so easily manipulated and their leaders so bent on deceiving them regularly. This phenomenon can only be explained by suggesting all those individuals suffer of permanent brain freeze. How else can it be explained? Everyone in the Republican Party - Legislators and constituents alike - behave in ways which defy logic and any form of common sense. They are not under hypnosis, as it is probably impossible to mass hypnotize millions. One thing is certain, they all have brain freeze. what else can it be?

No doubt that the passing of Elijah Cummings, the Chair of the Oversight Committee will be felt, more immediately by the Democrats but eventually by everyone in the country at a time when the other political Party, the GOP, seems to be on a mission to destroy the rule of law and shred the Constitution.

GOP - A Haven Of/For Racists
There was a time when the Republican Party fought for equality and inclusiveness. That was a very long time ago. Starting with Barry Goldwater who campaigned for the presidency of the United States in 1964 and became the Republican nominee that year by sidelining Blacks and blaming minority for every ill in the country, the GOP has never looked back.  Today, with Donald Trump, an openly racist individual, in the Oval Office as the 45th president, Republican Legislators have made it official they have embraced racism as GOP mantra. With a resolution introduced by the Democrats to condemn Trump's racist tweets, ALL the Republicans in the House voted against the resolution, making it impossible to deny they are all racist. It is no longer a question whether most Republicans are racist but rather how widespread that disease is throughout the country. For more on this topic and others, visit the People Branch website.

According to the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention (AFSP), suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States; there are approximately 14 suicides for every 100,000 residents.

This particular war is the making of one individual, Donald J. Trump. His supporters are immune to logic; Donald Trump can do no wrong.

The expression "The Big Divide" has been in the American politics since the creation of the Republic. But its meaning has changed throughout history. Under Obama, it means more or less that most Whites in the Republican Party resented the idea of a Black president to begin with let alone a Black Democrat President.  Today, the expression means war, war between those who support Trump and everyone else (Democrats, Independents & even Republicans who do not approve of Trump).

Trump Mulling Declassification of Top Secret Documents
With Trump's ascension to the presidency, it has finally dawned on me that most everything - if not everything - that Republicans have claimed to stand for has been a sham all along. For a very longtime, Republicans have claimed and occupied the spotlight on national security, on fiscal conservatism, on Christianity, on family values, on morality. It didn't take much to remove the mask they've been wearing for decades now. The latest affront to our nation by a rogue president received no push back, no resistance, no rebuke from the president.  To seek vengeance against those whose job is to protect the security of our nation, the president of the United States, for his personal gain, made the decision to declassify documents which would expose valuable human intelligence across the world.  For more information on Republicans' claim of patriotism, visit The People Branch  for an article on this topic.

Flashing the Anti-Semitism Card - Part-2
 Anti-Semitism is a very controversial issue. Antisemitism is hostility to, prejudice, or discrimination against Jews.  The holocaust has made any discussion about Israel's wrongdoing difficult; it seems impossible to chastise Israel because doing so would bring Anti-Semitism into the discussion.  Only flattery seems to be allowed when talking about Israel. But to Muslims however, Israel is the Hitler of the Middle East. They had indiscriminately killed civilians and offered the most despicable reasons for doing so; and the world simply shrugs it off.  Read about that topic and many others at The People Branch.

Brett Kavanaugh, Unhinged Supreme Court Justice
How did Brett Kavanaugh become Supreme Court Justice? Does it matter? Both the Executive and the Legislative Branches are known and widely accepted to be political. The Supreme Court, on the other hand, is expected to be a neutral Branch of our government.  Unfortunately, it is not. Supreme Court Justices do the bidding for the Party which appoints them. Because there is no further recourse beyond the Supreme Court, both major political Parties are always racing to place Judges which espouse their political views.  As such, the placement of Brett Kavanaugh - despite the stain of allege sexual assaults - is another example of how aggressive Republicans have been to completely destroy even the semblance of impartiality. United States has become a non-democratic system but people continue to believe otherwise.  Visit https://PeopleBranch.org for articles on other topics

The High Cost of Ignorance
It is said that education nowadays is very expensive; it's probably true but try ignorance. Ignorance, it is acknowledged, is the biggest threat to any democracy JFK said "the ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of us all" Although ALL men are born ignorant - that's not the real problem - many have chosen to stay and live in ignorance. Some choose to wear ignorance as a badge of honor. Although ignorance is useless, society cannot shrug the problem off. The price to pay is too high. Follow Me on Twitter @mducheiney.

Can Trump Be Compared to Adolf Hitler?-3
 I wrote in DEFIANT FOR AMERICA "Those who ignore the past will be  forced to relive it."(Mike Ducheine). George Santayana puts it  differently; he said "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned  to repeat it." Irrespective of how it is said and by whom, history teaches to pay  attention in order to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past.  On January 30, 1933 Adolf Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany  (the second in command, immediately after the President). Within 18  months, Hitler dismantled every aspect of Democracy in Germany. Fast forward to 2016, Donald Trump was elected President of the  United States. Since his first day in office, Mr. Trump has worked to  curtail freedom of expression by tagging the media of fake news, a  similar approach by Adolf Hitler who accused the media of fabrication. Mr. Trump has trampled the rule of law, ignored the Constitution and  managed to rally support in both Houses fully controlled by the  Republicans.  Hitler used a similar approach to suppress every aspect of freedom  and managed to have both Houses (the Reichstag & the Reichsrat)  passed legislations which gave him plenary power for a period of four  years. As such, it is fair to compare the two men as both seem to have the  same objective and the outcome of their approach seem identical. I invite you to visit https://peoplebranch.org to read further about  the similarities between Donald Trump, president of the United States  and Adolf Hitler, Chancellor of Germany. Both men had legitimately  acquired their respective political power, Russia's interference in the  2016 election notwithstanding.

Irrespective of how it is said and by whom, history teaches to pay attention in order to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past.  On January 30, 1933 Adolf Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany (the second in command, immediately after the President). Within 18 months, Hitler dismantled every aspect of Democracy in Germany. Fast forward to 2016, Donald Trump was elected President of the United States. Since his first day in office, Mr. Trump has worked to curtail freedom of expression by tagging the media of fake news, a similar approach by Adolf Hitler who accused the media of fabrication. Mr. Trump has trampled the rule of law, ignored the Constitution and managed to rally support in both Houses fully controlled by the Republicans.  Hitler used a similar approach to suppress every aspect of freedom and managed to have both Houses (the Reichstag & the Reichsrat) passed legislations which gave him plenary power for a period of four years. As such, it is fair to compare the two men as boh seem to have the same objective and the outcome of their approach seem identical. I invite you to visit https://peoplebranch.org to read further about the similarities between Donald Trump, president of the United States and Adolf Hitler, Chancellor of Germany. Both men had legimitately acquired their respective political power, Russia's interference in the 2016 election notwithstanding.

What Does GOP Stand For? - part 3
Alexander Hamilton said "If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything." Hamilton was not alone to think so; Peter Marshall also believe "Those who stand for nothing fall for anything."  Republicans have always claimed rights to certain values they have long abandoned 1.- they claim to be Christian (& Christian Conservative) all the while supporting publicly the vile and outrageous behavior of the most apathetic individual 2.- they claim to be fiscally conservative all the while cheering for Representatives who propose to increase the national debt 3.- they claim to be patriots all the while supporting interference of enemy state in our system of democracy When you stand for nothing, you fall for anything.

Other GOP Leaders in bed with Russia
Alexander Hamilton said "If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything." As the Mueller's probe into Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential elections picks up speed, it's becoming clearer every day that other Republican Leaders may have also been involved in the collusion with Russia. Outside that revelation by Mr. Mueller, it is the only plausible explanation for GOP members to continue to defend Mr. Trump in the face of blatant felony. Put differently, Mr. Trump was not the only one who sold the country to Russia. In the People Branch website peoplebranch.org you will find very interesting articles about this and other topics

Robert Mueller Got BUSTED - part 5
With the impending release of reports related to Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential elections by the Special Counsel office, it is fitting to take a look at how Mr. Mueller has conducted the investigation. Seen by most - even the most ardent critics - as a professional and despite the "witch hunt" label the president has attached to the investigation, Mr. Mueller has been beyond reproach. In the next four or five tapes, we take a look at the possibility that a simple - although human - mistake Mr. Mueller might have made could throw away all effort spent to uncover meddling into US internal affairs by a foreign entity and the possible collaboration with an enemy at the highest level of our government. God forbid! Will the report disappoint all parties? Let's find out together in the next five episodes of "Mueller Got Busted" Also don't forget to visit : peoplebranch.org for important articles

Brett Kavanaugh in Hot Water
The freedom you have when you (or your parents, or your grandparents or your great grandparents, or your ancestors) came in the United States is LITERALLY at stake. You cannot just shrug it off, for what ensues will impact you, your children, your grandchildren and even future generations which come after that. The nomination of a Supreme Court Justice is not a matter to decide based on political affiliations. The INSTANT gratification of voting for a Justice who supports your views today may literally HARM the future generations tomorrow. For that reason, WE must ONLY support individuals with high level of integrity and wisdom. Brett Kavanaugh IS NOT one such individual, Visit http://peoplebranch.org for great articles on various other topics.

Are Republicans DUMBER than Democrats? - Part 3
The short answer is YES. Don't kill the messenger. According to scientific research, Republicans are VERY dumb in life related matters. It has nothing whatsoever to do with their level of education. As of this publication, Republicans with master degrees argue adamantly that Donald Trump is very honest. Gina Loudon who just published a book and claimed to be a doctor (with a PhD) discussed in her book that Donald Trump is the most honest president who has ever occupied the Oval Office. In a 3-part series, we discussed the scientific finding which explains why Republicans are dumb in life related matters.

The High Cost of Ignorance
IGNORANCE is the biggest threat to DEMOCRACY. To keep millions of people in ignorance not only prevents democracy from flourishing but it also creates a path to authoritarianism 82% of "Fox News" viewers are ignorant of FACTS & TRUTH. The bigger problem however is because they are also ignorant of their ignorance. John F Kennedy said that "The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all." Ignorance is not cheap; it is a very heavy burden on society. Martin Luther King Jr. said that "Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." From the beginning of time to this day, mankind has recognized the need to shun ignorance, and yet many in our society have volunteered to wear it as a badge of honor.
