  • Fire, pestilence and a country at war with itself: the Trump presidency is over

    The Guardian(UK) ^ | 5/31/20 | Robert Reich
    You’d be forgiven if you hadn’t noticed. His verbal bombshells are louder than ever, but Donald J Trump is no longer president of the United States. By having no constructive response to any of the monumental crises now convulsing America, Trump has abdicated his office. He is not governing. He’s golfing, watching cable TV and tweeting. How has Trump responded to the widespread unrest following the murder in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a black man who died after a white police officer knelt on his neck for minutes as he was handcuffed on the ground?

    Robert Reich argued Trump is trying to boost his 2020 chances and “selling out Americans’ health to seal the deal.” Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich has broken down what he believes is President Donald Trump’s “lethal four-point plan” to boost his 2020 election chances by reopening the economy “at all costs” amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Clinton-era official explained in a video released on his YouTube channel Tuesday how Trump was trying to “remove income support, so people have no choice but to return to work,” “hide the facts” about testing for the contagion, “push a false narrative about ‘freedom’...

Crime in Progress: The Secret History of the Trump-Russia Investigation will be published in December by Penguin Random House in the US and UK. Simpson and Fritsch founded the Washington intelligence firm Fusion GPS. In summer 2015, it began investigating Trump and Moscow. It hired...

Wed Nov 6, 2019 Daniel Greenfield 26 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. Robert Reich dated Hillary Clinton. Eventually the diminutive leftist became Bill Clinton’s Secretary of Labor and parlayed that into teaching a class at UC Berkeley on Wealth and Poverty for six figures. Reich, who claims to be an expert on “inequality”, pulled down $304,802 in gross pay in 2018. The University of...

    Former U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert Reich warned Sunday that Americans are getting so used to President Donald Trump’s troubling behavior that they fail to see how truly “dangerously unstable” he is. In a column published Sunday in The Guardian, Reich pointed to Trump’s days-long advocacy of his inaccurate weather forecast that said Alabama was threatened by Hurricane Dorian. He even went so far as to promote a map with a circle awkwardly drawn around Alabama to make it look like the state was in the hurricane’s path. “We’ve had presidents trying to cover up a sexual liaison with an...

    A former U.S. labor secretary who is now a leading economist has called for the annulment of Donald Trump's election victory, calling it 'unconstitutional.' One of the United States’ leading econominsts, who also served in the adinsitrations of three U.S. presidents including a term as Secretary of Labor, called on Saturday for Donald Trump to be removed from office — and for his entire presidency to be declare null and void, as if it never happened. “Impeachment isn’t enough,” wrote Robert Reich, in an article published in Eurasia Review. “It should be annulled.” According to Reich, if Russia investigation Special...
  • Don't Just Impeach Trump. Annul His Presidency.

    Robert Reich's webpage ^ | August 24, 2018 | Robert "Third" Reich
    The only way I see the end of Trump is if there’s overwhelming evidence he rigged the 2016 election. In which case impeachment isn’t an adequate remedy. His presidency should be annulled. Let me explain. Many people are convinced we’re already witnessing the beginning of the end of Trump. In their view, bombshell admissions from Trump insiders with immunity from prosecution, combined with whatever evidence Mueller uncovers about Trump’s obstruction of justice and his aide’s collusion with the Russians, will all tip the scales. Democrats will take back the House and begin an impeachment, and the evidence of impeachable offenses...

    The Baltimore Sun ^ | May 22, 2018 | Robert Reich, former US Secretary of Labor
    Donald Trump's strategy for keeping power is to build up his coalition of America's white working class and the nation's ownership class. It's a curious coalition, to say the least. But if Democrats don't respond to it, it could protect Mr. Trump from impeachment and even re-elect him. It just might create a permanent Republican majority around an axis of white resentment and great wealth. Two decades ago, Democrats and Republicans competed over the middle class. They battled over soccer moms and suburban "swing" voters. Since then the middle class has shrunk while the working class has grown, and vast...

    The Baltimore Sun ^ | May 2, 2018 | by Robert B. Reich
    Why did working-class voters choose a selfish, thin-skinned, petulant, lying, narcissistic, boastful megalomaniac for president? With the 2018 midterms around the corner, and prospective Democratic candidates already eyeing the 2020 presidential race, the answer is important because it will influence how Democrats campaign. One explanation focuses on economic hardship. The working class fell for Mr. Trump's economic populism. A competing explanation -- which got a boost this week from a study published by the National Academy of Sciences -- dismisses economic hardship and blames it on whites' fear of losing status to blacks and immigrants. They were attracted to Mr....

    The One Percent on Wall Street must save the nation by taking political control from President Donald Trump, says former President Bill Clinton’s far-left labor secretary. “If the leaders of American business remain silent about what Trump is doing to American democracy, they will be complicit in its demise,” Robert Reich begged Wall Street CEOs in the April 26 San Francisco Chronicle. Reich, who was a progressive Secretary of Labor from 1993 to 1997, justifies calls for a virtual occupation by Wall Street of the White House, saying: As the Republican Party moves toward Trump’s looniness — his xenophobia, isolationism,...

    A woman who alleges that she engaged in a legal and consensual but inappropriate relationship with Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore has deleted multiple political postings from her Facebook page. Some of those postings by Deborah Wesson Gibson were critical of Moore while one was related to Moore’s Democratic opponent, Doug Jones. One posting shows a picture of Gibson with Vice President Joe Biden and says that she did work for him in 2012. One older version of that image is still on her page while another more recent posting of that same image in response to a posting from...

    Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich is calling for Donald Trump's impeachment "as soon as possible." His argument, in a nutshell: Trump is almost as deranged and mentally unstable as…Robert Reich. Here is his initial argument in his own words (from an August 18 blog post): Let’s be clear. There is already enough evidence to impeach Trump on grounds of abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and violation of the emoluments clause of the Constitution. There is already enough evidence of mental impairment to invoke the 25th amendment. I know, Republicans are in control of Congress. But this is no...

    New York, June 24 – The American economy could face significant and widespread disruptions from climate change unless U.S. businesses and policymakers take immediate action to reduce climate risk, according to a new report released today. The report, “Risky Business: The Economic Risks of Climate Change in the United States,” summarizes findings of an independent assessment of the impact of climate change at the county, state, and regional level, and shows that communities, industries, and properties across the U.S. face profound risks from climate change. The findings also show that the most severe risks can still be avoided through early...

    Robert Reich, who served as Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton, is urging his fellow progressives to block President-elect Donald Trump from carrying out his policy plans for his first 100 days in office, including a suggestion to “boycott all Trump products, real estate, hotels, resorts, everything.” Reich’s “First 100 Day Resistance Agenda” also urges Democrats in Congress to draw out the hearings of Trump’s Cabinet nominees while progressive journalists “dig into their backgrounds”. “Our version of ‘Drill, baby, drill’ is ‘Sue, baby, sue’,” he continued. “Throw sand in the gears. Lawyers, get organized.” He also recommended “coordinated fund-raising”...

March and demonstrate—in a coordinated, well-managed way. 3. Boycott all Trump products, real estate, hotels, resorts, everything. And then boycott all stores (like Nordstrom) that carry merchandise from Trump family brands. 6. Social media: What about a new YouTube channel devoted to video testimonials about resisting Trump’s First 100 Day Agenda? 8.

    Bill Clinton former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich talked about creating a third party if the Democratic Party does not move in a more progressive direction. “The Democratic Party can no longer be the same; it has been repudiated,” Reich said on a conference call with members from the progressive grassroots group Democracy for America. “This has been a huge refutation of establishment politics, and the political organization has got to be changed. … If the Democratic Party can’t do it, we’ll do it through a third party.” The Democratic Party is in an all-out civil war between the more...

    Bill Clinton and Barack Obama helped shift power away from the people towards corporations. It was this that created an opening for Donald Trump. What has happened in America should not be seen as a victory for hatefulness over decency. It is more accurately understood as a repudiation of the American power structure. At the core of that structure are the political leaders of both parties, their political operatives, and fundraisers; the major media, centered in New York and Washington DC; the country’s biggest corporations, their top executives, and Washington lobbyists and trade associations; the biggest Wall Street banks, their...
