The News Is Not Depressing.

I see a lot of people talking about how the news is too depressing, and they're shutting it off and tuning out. I have a message for you:

The news is not depressing. Do we have a corrupt regime right now? It appears so. Did they collude with a hostile foreign power? Looks like they did. Are some members of congress helping them cover it up? Yeah, they probably are. Are they going down for it? Yes. Emphatically yes, they are going down. It's happening NOW.

Remember, from the first news of the Watergate break-in until Richard Nixon's resignation took THREE YEARS.

This is bigger than Watergate.

This is the most important time in modern American history. What happens in the next few years will determine the fate of the world. I'm not kidding. There are heroes, right now, courageously standing up to a powerful group of people who are trying to subvert American Democracy. These heroes say: "Oh, no you don't. NOT in America." Sally Yates. Jim Comey. John McCain. Members of the media are doing the same: Rachel Maddow, the Washington Post, the New York Times, The New Yorker and other heroic, insightful, hardworking reporters ALL THROUGH THE MEDIA are proving their indispensability to the American experiment. Pay attention. Every story is built on the basis of staffers and elected officials leaking information, risking their careers to fuel reporters' research into all the ways democratic laws and norms are being flouted. This is a massive effort of people all through the government and news media to expose an administration that is trying to be above the law.

And all those shady people backing them, the corporations and millionaires and billionaires who would gut our feeble health care system to create tax savings for themselves? They. Will. Lose.

They are not above the law. They will never be above the law. They are going down.

Repeat after me:
They're going down.

If you can, if your health allows, watch it as it happens. Don't hide from it. I'm telling you, we are living through some of the most inspiring, uplifting, important events in American history.

You don't want to miss this.

  1. It does make me sick that the blatant disregard of laws and facts is accepted. I am hoping the patient ones are piling up so much evidence that the outcome is clearly impeachment or resigning. Trump is such an unusual personality that seems to slip and slide around every stop gate like an oiled snake. But hopefully that'll come to an end. I do feel proud of those standing tall and in the name of Democracy and the law. And for those rising up and demanding to be heard. Thank you all!

    1. I feel the same way Natasha. But I think that for every corrupt Yahoo in our government there are quite a few people who are quieter and more humble working to protect us all. I think we are seeing evidence of this. I think there's a lot of reason to help.

  2. I very much am keeping up with the news out of DC every day. But it's hard not to get discouraged. Looks like Flynn won't say anything without immunity.

    What can be done to unclassify the classified information?

    2. oh I know. But consider that every reporter in this country wants to crack this case. The administration really isn't good at covering it's footprints. I have faith that the truth will come out one way or another. And remember, it isn't just our intelligence community who is doing the investigation. Probably other intelligence Operatives from other countries are also looking into things. Nobody wants this administration to get away with what they're trying to do.
