My Dear America:
As usual, on last night's Rachel Maddow Show, Rachel blew my mind once again, as she seems to be able to do every night. The truth is, though, that it is not difficult for Rachel to keep coming up with incredible stories concerning Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
Quite frankly I would prefer not to write anything at all anymore about Donald Trump. I would be happy never to write his name or hear his name spoken ever again in my life. I know that Trump would hate it if the American Media would actually forget about him and never write about him or talk about him on Television or Radio.
But Donald Trump is a clever devil. He knows how to constantly manipulate his image. He is, after all is said and done, just a Simple New York Real Estate Businessman who has figured out how to not just be successful in Real Estate but also be a successful enough Politician to become President of the United States.
How the hell did that happen?
He has three News Networks that make everything he does seem like works of Political Genius. You have to give the guy credit for balls. He doesn't have much else going for him but he does have balls.
Getting back to Rachel Maddow. Rachel has had the best Political Show on Television for a long time now. She seems to have a knack for finding out and exposing stories that other journalists have either missed or just didn't think were important enough. I remember hearing Rachel Maddow on Air America Radio. Rachel was on a Morning show, at first with two other Co Hosts. Chuck D. of the Hip Hop Group, Public Enemy was one of the hosts. The other Co Host was Lizz Winstead, who was the Co Creator of The Daily Show that Jon Stewart and Trevor Noah hosted for many years. It seemed to me that Rachel's Co Hosts were hardly ever on the Air America Program but Rachel was always on and always interesting and always had Relevant Political Stories to tell. Following the Cancellation of the Air America Morning Show it wasn't long after when The Rachel Maddow Show ended up as a Three Hour Radio Program in a better time slot on Air America Radio
Keith Olbermann was the host of the "Countdown" Program on MSNBC when he began featuring Rachel on his program more and more. Unfortunately for Keith, he ended up losing his show but Rachel Maddow and also Laurence O'Donnell, who were both often Olbermann's guests on "Countdown" ended up with their own MSNBC Political Shows.
It seems as though I've gone off on a tangent here about the history of Rachel Maddow in broadcasting. That's OK Though. I love Rachel Maddow and I have for a long time admired her broadcasting skills.
Anyway, I will try to get back on track here.
Rachel had one of her unusual stories on last night's Television Broadcast that blew my mind. She revealed that some Republican Party Leaders in Arizona have taken steps to try to try to recount the votes from the November 2020 Election in Maricopa County in that state.
Why are these Qanon Conspiracy Theorists only wanting to count the votes in Maricopa County? Because that county was largely responsible for Donald Trump losing Arizona to Joe Biden in the 2020 Presidential Election.
The Unhappy Arizona Republicans want to pay for their effort to Recount the 2020 Election with Arizona Taxpayer Funds, along with generous donations from Unnamed Sources.
But here's the Kicker.
The Company that the Arizona Republicans have hired to do their Dirty Deed is called Cyber Ninjas. Yes, people, you heard that right.
Rachel also revealed that one of the prime movers in getting Cyber Ninjas on the job in Arizona and other states which Trump legitimately lost is OAN (One America Network) .
The worst of it is yet to come. Cyber Ninjas has been required by the Arizona courts to produce documentation of how they plan to conduct the Recount. Cyber Ninjas has advised the courts that they cannot reveal their business secrets so they just want to have Arizona trust that their methods of counting votes will be above board.
What in the hell has happened to this country? Are we living in a Third World Country now? Is Democracy and choosing a President by legitimate counting of votes a thing of the past. I hope not.
It is time for Americans to wake up to the insanity that seems to have taken hold of our Democracy and won't let go.
I would suggest that all of us start tuning in to Rachel Maddow and follow the true story of our shameful Republican Party Meltdown.
I thought for many years that It can't happen here that we could lose our Democracy.
I was wrong. We are in an all out press by the Republican Party to return a Dangerous Dictator to Power in any and every way possible.
Since we have a President who is doing the right things every day it is possible to be complacent and not worry about the Death of Liberty and Democracy in America but I am very worried that if we don't start taking these maniacs seriously that we are in for an incredibly Rude Awakening.
Start Watching Rachel if you haven't watched her before and call your Congress Person and your Senator and tell them you have not given up on Democracy and that you never will.
