Your Emperor Tarot card and your feeling that the people in @Baba's vision were grieving the dying of democracy resonates with me although I feel they weren't grieving its death. I feel they were sending light to an institution that has been desecrated. They were putting protection over it, and honoring it.  Pouring light into it, and yes, grieving over what has been done to it.

I love your vision @baba

No president who came before this one, even the awful Richard Nixon, and certainly not Clinton, has ever tried to destroy this democracy.  Nixon tried to get away with a crime, was avaricious too, and I couldn't stand the guy.  But when he resigned and was asked to pardon his guilty accomplices, he said, no, because it would not be honorable to do that. 

Donald Trump and the Republican Party are willfully, knowingly trying to destroy the world's longest lived democracy. 250 years of service, thousands of lives sacrificed, and millions of people who devoted their lives to upholding this democracy are now being stamped on by a small number of rogue villains in the name of personal greed.

I don't have to tell you how they are trying to destroy our democracy. No president has ever issued a broad order to his staff not to cooperate with a Congressional investigation. Never has an entire party sat through hearings that fully and clearly exposed wrongdoing and then turned their heads away and said nothing happened. Nothing was shown.  No president has given over the country to an enemy.   I shudder to imagine any of his family or staff in the White House.

It has felt like an occupation by an enemy to me.  This is a desecration. 

Yesterday's New Yorker interview of Schiff said so much to me. He and the reporter were as solemn as those standing in vigil outside the WH:

There were so many moments in the hearings that summed up Trump.  But Schiff said the moment that stood out for him was the testimony of Sondland's conversation with Holmes. 

"Holmes had asked Sondland, “'Does the President give a shit about Ukraine?” As Holmes testified, the answer was no, he only cares about “the big stuff.” Well, Holmes pointed out, there is big stuff happening in Ukraine, like a war with Russia, but Sondland said no, that was not what he meant. Trump only cared about matters that concerned him, like the investigations. “That says it all,” Schiff told me. “The President doesn’t give a shit about what’s good for our country, what’s good for Ukraine. It’s all about what’s in it for him personally..." In that small moment in an obscure diplomat’s testimony, Schiff reflected, was the impeachment case in all its brazen simplicity. “That is a perfect summary,” he said, “of this whole scheme.”

Makes me want to rush to the White House and hold a candle and pray for those walls to undo the desecration.

I just kicked in $30, may I have "two" accesses?  One for myself and one for a person of your choosing who may not have contributed money but may be a frequent contributor to the site OR you get the energetic hit that they would really appreciate the early viewing.

Thanks!

If this isn’t crazy for a president to do, I don’t know what is!!! It is all over all the major papers!

Trump bizarrely declares war against 'flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times'

Remember this?

Last year, Donald and Melania Trump asked the Guggenheim Museum if they could “borrow” a painting by Vincent van Gogh to hang in the White House, the Washington Post reports. The museum declined. Instead, it offered Maurizio Cattelan’s “America”: a functioning toilet cast in 18-karat gold.

I still am hoping we're going to wake up one morning and this was all a bad dream...

Thanks for posting. T's war on toilets is another roll-back of EPA regulations that served to conserve water. His compulsive fear of germs  is likely the reason he singled out that one. But his total ignorance and malicious self involvement underlies these  actions.

He also talked about lots of  water coming down from the sky. He said, “It’s called rain”. He is definitely unraveling.

Howdy - I have participated in a number of DC marches and rallies, including some near the White House. Directly across Pennsylvania Avenue from the WH is Lafayette Park. It is a favored place for protests. It is large enough to accommodate big crowds. One can easily see the White House from there, even with the current security construction ongoing to raise the height of the fencing around the WH.  Pennsylvania Avenue is now blocked off for pedestrians (a first).

There have been a few rallies there that take advantage of the night time by asking participants to bring candles.  Also, battery-operated electric candles. And, of course, phone lights. Usually at the end of the rally, people will activate their lights and hold them up. It's quite a sight with hundreds and even thousands of lights shining all around. Very inspiring. It makes one feel good for having participated in the event with so many like-minded folk! 

Anyway, I expect that you may be seeing another such protest rally in our future! Maybe I will be there, too!!

@mikeb I would l0ve to see pictures if it happens! Thanks for the info. Just knowing that it is possible makes me feel a bit better about having seen it. I just hope that, if it happens, that it is for a positive reason. I try to consistently meditate on love, not hate.

You know, I really love her! While I do root for the frontrunner Biden-- (I figure he has the name recognition, and many significant constituencies and power brokers behind him), I actually send Amy's campaign donations. She is my favorite underdog. I have read her campaign website and like what I see. For that reason, I consider myself undecided LOL. What I like about Amy is that she has years of experience, she is of my generation, she is smart, a hard worker and tough boss, she wins, she is down to earth and to me, seems to understand what people have been going through-- she has empathy. She also had to deal with an alcoholic father growing up (as I did) so I think she has a good spidey sense for BS.
