The Shame You & Donald Trump have brought on America


By Patricia Moloney Dugas

“She’s a Liar – a criminal!”  “She is a Horrible, Horrible Human Being” August 6, 2016.  “She’s the Devil!”

Because Trump is losing now: his vitriol becomes increasingly more destructive, even libelous. The more he loses, the more poisonous he becomes. The real Trump emerges. He is wounded and has no connection with reality – only outrageous lies and exaggerations of his alone ability to restore America.  He has decimated the spineless Republican Party who stand by and watch.

This is the man you want to suddenly turn global and presidential, take over America, and become the leader of the Free World?  He has repeatedly threatened our NATO family, the European Union, slam the door on all Islamists, Mexicans, refugees, to build walls, break fair trade and other global agreements… – does this please you?

He must be removed now before he destroys what is left of our nation’s integrity. This consummate bully is punching his way through his critics and opponents, or anyone disagreeing with him: “Liars! Cheaters! Rigged!  Devils!

Can’t you see whats happening?  Politics as usual?  No!  It’s the ravings of a delusional narcissist the disgraceful media has turned into its own toy clown. Because you accept him as ‘normal’ you make America look foolish. The shame he has already brought on America tells the rest of the Free World watching with despair, that we approve of his antics.  He’s on his own joy ride, to hell with the consequences. To hell with the need more than ever, for a noble American world leader.

Only my opinionWashington (CNN) “50 prominent Republican foreign policy and national security experts — many veterans of George W. Bush’s administration — have signed a letter denouncing Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy and pledging not to vote for him.  The letter, first reported by The New York Times Monday, warns: “We are convinced that in the Oval Office, he would be the most reckless President in American history.”

Charles Krauthammer Washington Post columnist:  “This is beyond narcissism. I used to think Trump was an 11-year-old, an undeveloped schoolyard bully. I was off by about 10 years. His needs are more primitive, an infantile hunger for approval and praise, a craving that can never be satisfied. He lives in a cocoon of solipsism where the world outside himself has value — indeed exists — only insofar as it sustains and inflates him.”

Shame on all of you:   (1) the biased, unprincipled  media who created and nurtured this charlatan; (2) all the TV commentators who lie to us boldface and defend him, (3) all you citizens  who chose deliberately to bask in his contempt for everything American, and (4) the Republican Party who don’t have the guts to trash Trump, apologize, and bring us a truly viable candidate to carry the GOP banner.  Shame on all of you.

What you fail to acknowledge:  America is not Broken. What you are too blinded to realize is that the rest of the world is in serious financial and social decline while America has come through the 2008 near-disaster because of president Obama, who had to work with a hostile, impotent, Republican Congress. What is broken in America is the hordes of restless, impatient, disheartened citizens who want to lash out and overthrow everything. Wake up and look outside yourself, look outside your party, and look outside at the rest of the world.  Turn back and study carefully, honestly – think responsibly.

To the Republican Party:  Because you have reluctantly stood behind this perilous bombast, the Republican Party has failed to dismiss Trump and then to rally around one of their other candidates to go up against the much maligned Hillary Clinton, deemed undesirable by this same damaging media. The GOP would have a real chance to regain their integrity, and maybe the White House.  Right now, the party is wretched and cowardly. We are at a dangerous crossroads.

To all of you choosing, following, and blindly defending this narcissist on his own private joy ride, do you also choose to believe his misogynistic vitriol against Hillary Clinton?  Is anyone as bad, as mental, as criminal, as dangerous as his absurd portrayal of her?  Shame on him for abusing her and shame on you  for preferring to believe his preposterous accusations. Stop the hating.

When Trump loses: he will claim ‘everyone’ loves and wants him, but it’s a system rigged by Washington politicians, a trashed country, a rigged election — and you will believe him!  He will shake off the dust; go back to his tower, leaving American integrity in shambles.  You too will blame anything except the bombast himself – and your own self.

I ask you to wake up and apologize for your careless, selfish, misguided devotion.   This is not a political issue, it is a moral one. The world is waiting for a noble American leader and you are standing in the way.

Wake up America!

Trump Has Irrevocably Divided America

A wounded Miss Liberty

Wounded Ms Liberty

Trump’s false promises have irrevocably divided America.   You – as I – have friends, relatives, and neighbors that have become fiercely seduced. Gone over to the Dark Side. There is no room left for rational debate.

They want to illogically believe Trump will fix everything HE claims is wrong – all by himself – because he is the “smartest, cleverest, kindest, most caring person” ever to claim the presidency. This seriously delusional narcissist will save us from ourselves.

We dare not speak – we risk losing friends and relatives if we criticize this frightening Bombast. 

I am a conservative that wants change but the Republican Party has failed us.     They don’t have the courage to defy Trump and give America an honest, strong game-changer. Some important Republican leaders have defied him, but they remain silent. They just won’t speak out – like this bad dream will go away.  Because they have failed so miserably, the door has been opened for a fool to rush in.

The anarchists have been unleashed.


My Election Tweets – If You Missed Them

These are my tweets during the 2016 Election process.

I am deeply concerned with the selection of Donald Trump for president whom I consider completely and personally unfit to lead the country (and the Free World).  His only method is the cruel, vicious, and fallacious attacks to utterly destroy Hillary Clinton.  This is my indictment against Trump and not my approval of Hillary.  Pat Dugas.   

Here are my tweets during July, 2016

  • America has lost its conscience! They cannot think. They listen to biased, dangerous media and believe. They cannot think it through.
  • Trumps outright denial of plagiarism is his methodology. All his people lying over and over. Will he run the country the same way?
  • Do you delight in the Hillary barracuda feeding frenzy by the GOP? They have no plan only destroy Hillary. Is this moral democracy? Shame!
  • Is Democracy a Dirty Word? Lies, attacks, tear to shreds, demoralization? Does Freedom of Speech lead to a media frenzy of exaggerated lies?
  • Evil people will do and say anything to crush opponents. The treatment of Hillary tonight shows how evil the Trump camp is. Shame!
  • Bush turned the world upside down when he invaded Iraq.The US has been on a down spiral ever since. We are paying the price 4 blunder.
  • GOP liars liars liars. One after another denying the plagiarism charge over Trump’s wife’s speech. Then blaming Hillary. Wake Up America!
  • Trump tweeted: “@CNN is the worst. They go to their dumb, one-sided panels..” He hates all media. Who does he expect to cover him favorable?
  • Trump said he selected Cleveland, Ohio. He lied. It was chosen even before he ran for president. He is a liar. Wake up America.
  • Trash and Bash – the Trump method of dealing with difficult adversarial issues. Trash and Bash them is his way of life.
  • Trump has managed to drag his wife down to his level of incompetence. You want him to run the White House? Trump is an empty shallow fraud.
  • Trump has managed to drag his wife down to his level of incompetence. And you want him to run the White House and NATO? Wake up America.
  • The Hatred spewing out of the Republican convention is as grievous as any other form of terrorism if you believe their lies! Don’t listen!
  • America’s disgrace: GOP using libelous lies about Hillary to drag themselves up out of the muck to win – no real answers just scandal lies.
  • “Open Carry” OPEN CARRY !?! Ohio law you can ‘wear’ a gun or rifle! Cannot “wave it or point it” – “handled safely” until, of course…
  • Slate@Slate   Dear GOP: This is the man you’re about to nominate to be president. Are you sure about this? 
  • A retweet…) Trump Ghost Writer tells all Trump unfit to lead.
  • Convention: The real GOP not there – refusing to be a part of it. Anti-Trump radicals ready to pounce. Times require honesty, integrity, honor

Please give serious thought before voting for this media-driven buffoon.

Who broke America? Let’s start at the top.

Villains #1  Those we sent to Congress! Their unconscionable, blind determination to thwart President Obama at every turn has brought the country and the American public to a state of disillusionment and stagnation that may never heal.

Congress had choices. In the midst of the direst emergency, they refused to put aside their arrogance to protect the U.S. from disaster. But their poisonous choices against Obama and the Democrats immersed the country directly into the divided, angry virus that now permeates all political atmospheres.

The 2016 election is upon us.  Instead of logic and intelligence, we have both parties marching headlong behind two radicals, Trump & Sanders, howling at the moon, promising illogic solutions. They will destroy those in power, put a “chicken-in-every-pot, drive out troublesome races, and restore America’s greatness. They alone can save this broken nation –  broken by Obama alone — all according to an unbridled & biased media. This is not a Reality TV show that ends at 11:00pm. We will have to live in the mess that is happening.

President Obama, in spite of their constant obstruction, has brought us through this economic disaster while the rest of the globe is still floundering, some on the brink of collapse.

If Hillary Clinton, the seemingly most qualified to become the next leader of the free world, (let’s not forget what’s at stake here…), becomes president, this self-destructive Congress will serve up another 4 to 8 years of continuing bitterness and resentment, and remain irreparably stalled as it has been since 2008. The world is watching our blind, destructive, adolescent behavior as we foul our own nest.

Villains #2:  Most regrettable is the reprehensible media that has declared the nation ‘broken’ and created an atmosphere of terrible anger and revenge. They greedily thrive on the very controversies they have already created by solely focusing on the bizarre, while seriously ignoring all other viable candidates. The more bizarre Trump becomes, the more celebrity he gathers by denigrating all in his path – calling his fellow Republicans reprehensible names – adding negatives that will shame them forever in the public square. The incessant power of the media and the anonymous witlessness of Twitter & Social Media only feed this rebellion.  They are dividing friends, families, political parties, religious groups, and the nation at large.

Villains #3:  So do we blame Congress and the unconscionable media alone? Or shall we add to this virus the angry, bitter American public who have thoughtlessly latched onto the bizarre radicals performing on stage, posing as viable presidential material, howling at the moon, while trampling on the American psyche and leading this parade of hate. They are foolish enough to cause serious rebellion should things not go their way. We stand at the edge of a self-inflicted abyss.

Back to Normal After November?  Not on your life! The psychological damage and divisions already created by self-appointed radicals with the support of the media, have left America shamed and torn asunder. They are trashing our freedoms & our nationalism in exchange for their 15 minutes of infamy.

The only possible solution to this social tragedy is to use the power of the ballot. Vote in the remaining sane candidate. If we chose a radical, then, indeed, God bless America – save her from this angry madness.

While the World Watches: For the 2016 election, there were several viable Republican candidates with a clear message for the country and the world, but they were blow off stage by the absurd onslaught of one Donald Trump.  Because of angry citizenry who have been convinced by a hyperbolic media that The Country is Broken, the irrational, often bizarre declarations of Trump were hailed as the anti-political voice of a messiah.

Bullying His Way: The freakish narcissism exhibited by Trump as he belittles, mocks, and shames all other candidates with destructive adjectives — “low-life, stupid, racist, ignorant, little Marco, and his favorite, liar.” While everyone else is a liar, he then declares himself to be smartest, kindest, best, and the greatest businessman “ever!” – all indications of a truly unbalanced person. His grandiose social and economic promises, i.e., the great wall, halting China, the Iran treaty, romancing Putin, bombing the Middle East, ending Obamacare, could never be implemented. Pure bombast.

His Racism has no Bounds:  Muslims, illegal Mexicans, Middle Eastern migrants are amongst those Trump has blatantly threatened to exorcise from the country when he moves into the White House. The voice of the reason remains silent.

Media Collaboration:  The more Trump blustered, the more free prime-time coverage he received, to the detriment of all other more qualified candidates. The FOX news channel championed his antics to the delight of angry, rebellious citizens.  The die was cast.

New Defense:  Once the stage was cleared of most of the viable contenders, the remaining GOP candidates, in order to stem the tide, started using kind-for-kind personal attacks back at Trump.  Like bullies in a school yard, they snarled at each other while the world looked on — shaming themselves and America. The voice of logic has been silenced by a media-driven side show.

Moral Decay:  Alarmingly, there has been no public outcry – no moral stand – no disapproval of how destructive his out-of-balance tirades are.   Instead of dismay – there is a resounding howling, shrieking approval from the audiences at the debates and rallies.  The voice of reason remains silent.

Phenominon  to Aberration  to Embarrassment: Attempts now by the Republican leadership to stop the embarrassment of a Trump candidacy could potentially set in place a fire storm — releasing the public bitterness created by a biased media.  As the possibility looms that we could end up, by mishap, with a bully candidate, we can only blame the misled, misinformed, hostile public that wants only to turn upside down the precarious stability achieved by president Obama who successfully brought America out of the 2008 financial disaster while the rest of the world economies are still floundering and failing.

America Has Lost Her Way: What a sad commentary. We have lost our nobility. The world is watching us make utter fools of ourselves – while they are waiting for leadership from America. We are turning our great nation over to the disillusioned and discontented rabble. Our Congress has failed us and promises to continue to do so should another Democrat regain the White House. More years of stubborn defiance from a failed Republican Party.

All this disillusions our nation friends while empowering our enemies. If America is to lead the world through the 21st century, we had better take this election process seriously.

Christmas Is Depressing to the Depressed

Christmas Is Depressing to the Depressed

by Patricia Moloney Dugas

  How dare I attack the joy of the Christmas Season?  Because there are those who are assaulted by the “Good News” that has been trampled by the media.

          Christmas time is acutely depressing to those who are struggling to stay alive emotionally, and the media exacerbates their pain.

          Fault the media?  TV suspends all that has been a lifeline for them.  Familiar series & programs, sports, good movies — all are suspended until the “New” Year. All that has been familiar and necessary to maintain equilibrium in their troubled lives not only has been taken away but is replaced with Christmas Pablum.  Endless unreal stories depict life’s traumas miraculously cured with loving, holy, but illogic healing – all the things so missing in their own realities.

          Once the Pablum has been consumed and Christmas joy melts away, reality sets in. The frantic world returns. The depressed are still left loveless, unprotected, rejected by all that has meant something to them.  What was intended (commercially) to lift their spirits only falsely re-emphasizes the emptiness they are consumed with.      Brotherhood disappears.

          If you in no way can relate to this dilemma, have never lost all connection with your life and loved ones, or have never craved a merciful end to the fear and rejection that consumes you, then you are blessed. Silently offer a blessing to those who are there. If you can, reach out to them, let them talk to you, support their needs without judgement. The Christmas message.


And We Watched It Happen
By Patricia Moloney Dugas
With all that humanity has experienced since the dawn of time, we find ourselves in abysmal disgrace. Look at us. Were we all created flawed? Diminished? Or, indeed, were we created imbued with divine wisdom and knowledge but became flawed by the societies and beliefs we have chosen to embrace? Here is where our world stands now.

ISIS INVADING THE MIDDLE EAST Violence beyond measure. Beheadings. Massacres. Videos of their gruesome atrocities. Supreme vicious destruction beyond human endurance. As they metastasize, we endure – blind to the increasing danger to us all.

Their inhumanity should have set the rest of the world on fire! How have these shameless marauding gangsters gained such power? Because there is no counter-force to stop them. They are not waging war, they are committing crimes against their brothers and sisters. If not for humanitarian reasons, use the self-interested excuse that the collective economies in the Middle East and all over the globe will suffer. Even self-preservation does not persuade us to seriously intervene.

THIS IS NOT A HOLY WAR: This is savage hatred – the basest of human emotions. The astounding abuse and disregard for women and children is beyond all human comprehension. The sadistic crushing of all that is feminine in their cultures only exacerbates unbridled masculine wars of revenge. Their young men grow not as warriors but predatory scavengers – armed with guns, tanks, and facemasks to hide their ingrained hatred.

No longer can we accept the age-old excuse that these tribes have been at war for fourteen centuries fueled by a clash of ideologies. These ‘beliefs’ are an excuse – a contrivance that allows them to wreak vengeance on all in their path – in the name of their brutal god that demands savage brutality. Their motive is instead, a secular re-structuring of the Middle East with ancient traditions that contradict all that mankind has achieved in its struggle for human equality. Women and children will suffer the most. This will only serve to drive the Middle East back into the dark ages.

A WORLD OF REFUGEES: In Africa as well as the Middle East, there are millions of refugees fleeing to neighboring countries and living in unbearable confinement for years! They had to flee for their lives in fear of the irrational savagery of these marauders. Will they ever be able to go home? Is there a home, a country, a government that has not been ravaged and plundered – left anywhere? By all that is ‘Good and Pure and Holy’ with today’s shared knowledge and wisdom, why is the world turning so brutal? Are we our brother’s keeper or predator?

IN NIGERIA: The Boko Haram continues unabated their radical Islamic reign of terror.
In our own Western Hemisphere: “Organized crime has taken over Mexico and Central America,” said the former President of Mexico, Felipe Calderon on the Amanpour program. “60,000 murdered. Vigilantes taking over,” he continued.
Unheard of in human history, thousands of child refugees from Central America have been flooding unabated across the southern borders of the United States, often sent by parents, often molested or brutalized on the way, to escape the inhuman violence of the drug wars. Not religion this time, but drugs to feed the free world’s appetite for anesthetics. To feel good while Rome burns?
Global Blindness     In the face of all this global terrorism, the cowardly impotence of our Congress, of the United Nations, of the European Union, and the Western free nations has already served  to empower this terrorism. And they are laughing in our faces.

OUR OWN INTERNAL TERRORISTS: We have ‘terrorists’ (those who would harm our country) right here in our own house. Those with electoral power who want so badly for the president to fail, they are blind to the effect their dangerous rhetoric is having on the country and its image abroad as the leader of the free world. Unreasoned. Even these terrible tragedies happening live before our eyes cannot quell the obstructionist’s vicious attacks on president Obama and his party. They instead use these calamities as fallacious fuel for their attacks. There is an alarming blindness to what is happening all around us and what our moral duty is. If not moral or humanitarian, then at least economic considerations? The terrorist’s hatred of America and the West is what drives them. Crush at any cost. Do we wait for another 9/11 to wake us up?

Our nation is also blinded internally by political, racial, and sectarian hatred¬, fueled by the news and Social Media, except we use dangerous rhetoric instead of guns against each other. These divisions may never heal. Are we even capable of setting aside hate and pulling together? Must we take away the ‘chicken in every pot’ to wake up those who could help?

Biased media is spewing endless lies to satisfy their prejudiced executives. Cable TV uses these atrocities as headlines hour after hour, with video clips to emphasize what’s happening “out there.” We give these butchers a global audience free of charge. Are we so de-sensitized not to care?
This is a Global Emergency There is a collective evil greater than any in world history. We can use the words ‘hatred’ and ‘evil’ now. Is it possible to change the course of human history? Take notice.

The European Union mobilized with incredible speed when Putin, breaking international law, annexed Crimea and then amassed 40,000 troops on the border of Ukraine with the full intention of pulling that nation back into the Soviet Union. The solid power of the collective EU halted Putin in his tracks by non-military means. They spoke the language of economic deterrence. Peace can no longer be enforced by local militias.

A COALITION OF WESTERN POWERS: The U.S. is only one military force but a solid coalition of Western powers — committed to world stability – with an active and readied military – a Global Guard –would create an effective deterrent. There would be an army ready to destroy those who would invade and brutalize other nations. Only a real fear of annihilation will send the message that radical terrorism will no longer succeed. National leaders such as those already deposed in the Middle East can no longer rise to the tyrannical power that has ruled through history.

OUR MOMENT IN HISTORY: There is a tangible negative energy permeating the world’s very atmosphere, spreading a global anxiety never experienced in the history of man. Social Media drones on and on. We cannot escape the terrorism mushrooming on every continent of our tenuous planet. Our logic, our sanity, seems to have been drained away and buried in the trash we have made of our home. There is no spirit, no honesty, in our pitiable attempts to stop the decline. We may no longer have the time or the ability to heal our planet.

Humanity has always seemed to believe in a creator, a force greater than ourselves. Have we become so jaded because of our non-compliance with the divine and natural law, that we cannot find our way back?
