Whale and Politicians

America now has 3 political parties.
And the Republicans and Democrats aren't among them.

3 Parters


Amend the US Constitution to limit the terms of service of US Congress to 12 years.
It is not about Left, Right, or Middle. It is about We the People... Americans.

And The Most Dangerious of All:
REPUBLICANS

Republican Attacks on Robert Mueller Are Absurd. But the GOP Has Been Lawless for Decades. ...one thing's for sure: If Trump does take some kind of outrageous action against Mueller, the Republican Party will mumble, look down at its shoes, and then do nothing whatsoever. If this occurs it should come as no surprise to anyone. It's simply the logical endpoint of decades of effort by the Republican Party and its media penumbra to shield the GOP from the rule of law or any small-D democratic norms. Today's GOP sees any and all rules just as billionaire New York real estate developer Leona Helmsley saw taxes - they're only for "the little people."

What does it feel like when a liberal democratic country turns the corner into authoritarianism?

Roy Moore Is Exactly What the Republican Party Is All About - Wake up and smell the white supremacist theocracy.

GOP Turns to Decades-Old Lies to Sell New Tax Scam:
"You can fool some of the people all of the time --- and that's our target market."

"This tax bill was written for Republicans' wealthy campaign contributors. I want to congratulate my Republican colleagues for their honesty about that."

GOP Rewards The Rich, Rips Off The Rest Of Us: Republican leaders in Congress make no secret of prioritizing tax cuts for their wealthy donors and corporate allies over the needs of people who work for a living. The hypocrisy of some prominent politicians helps explain why the public holds all of them in such low repute. Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) was a deficit hawk, voting against his Party's tax scam, until his vote was needed. Then, his "heartfelt" deficit concerns miraculously disappeared.

The Senate Republicans pulled this [tax bill] off through a singular focus on one overarching goal: The billionaire donor class must receive its payout, at any cost. [The] underlying math is relatively straightforward: "By 2027, people making $40,000 to $50,000 would pay a combined $5.3 billion more in taxes, while the group earning $1 million or more would get a $5.8 billion cut."

Tax reform is being sold as an overhaul designed to create jobs. But business executives say the bill will drive them to invest in automation, the type that will allow them to cut jobs in the future.

America's 20 largest companies on the tax overhaul: Lots of promises to help shareholders. Two promises to hire more workers. No promises to raise wages.


Here are the $5 trillion worth of winners and losers in the tax bill heading for a vote: It's being billed as a $1.5 trillion package. But when you add it all up, the changes in the proposed tax overhaul bill set for a vote this week in Congress would create more than $5 trillion worth of tax winners and losers.

How will GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert square this circle?: "GOP tax bill will create jobs, help middle class" (Video) No doubt he'll try, and will "convince" some, I'm sure.

Ditto for James Dimon, Chief Executive Officer of JPMorgan Chase

But both MarketWatch's Rex Nutting and MotherJones' Kevin Drum told the world this would happen - as did dozens of other reliable sources - but no right-leaning voter wanted to believe it:
'DON'T CONFUSE ME WITH FACTS; I'VE ALREADY MADE UP MY MIND!!!!!!!!!'.

GOP's Ugly Secret: Tax Plan Would Force Quarter-Trillion Dollar Cut In Medicare - Not exactly what most Trump voters bargained for.

The GOP Plan Is the Biggest Tax Increase in American History, By Far. Republicans have spent years describing the Affordable Care Act as the largest tax increase in U.S. history. But all told, it raised less than $1 trillion in taxes over 10 years to pay for all that. The relative stinginess, in fact, is what fueled its unpopularity, as premiums and deductibles remained too high. But what Republicans lambasted as a historic tax hike represents just one-fifth of the tax increase of the new GOP bill.

White House Memo Justifying CFPB Takeover Was Written By Payday Lender Attorney Steven A. Engel ...in July 2015, Engel was one of two lead counsels for NDG Financial Corp., a Canadian payday lender that CFPB cited for running a nine-year scheme to use its foreign status to offer U.S. customers high-cost loans that were at odds with state and federal law.

Election Information

Not all U.S. Senate seats are up for election the same year.

There are two Senate seats for each state, totaling 100. Seats are set as a "Class": Class 1, Class 2 and Class 3. Over a period of 3 election cycles (6 years), all seats will face election. 33 seats are set for Class 1 and Class 2. Class 3 has 34 seats.

Only Class 1 seats are up for election in 2018, highlighted with lime (green). However, due to a resignation, retirement, death or appointment, a seat in another Class may be up for election, and is referred to as a "Special Election".

Kelli Ward -
Is Kelli Ward the new Christine O'Donnell, Sharron Angle and Todd Akin 'wrapped into one'?
For example, here's Sharron Angle:
Angle obviously believes in armed revolt if she and others like her are not elected. That insinuates she believes more in a brutal dictatorship than democracy. Angle actually said as much during her first Senate run: "Sometimes Dictators Have Good Ideas", something her staff hid from the public until after she lost her Senate bid in 2010.
