This interview popped up in my YouTube feed for some reason. Many of us from the United States remember the president well from the 1980s and 1990s and we are well-acquainted with his character. I’m sharing this post for many international viewers who might not “remember” back to 1994.
We are at a critical point in time when women are still trying to be recognized as equal citizens on the planet. There are a lot of differences of opinion out there. I believe in women. I believe in the future. Please consider voting him out. For my international friends, please consider who you trust when you are researching and looking around online. Many of us are alive long enough to know a person’s story longer term.

You are so gracious in expressing your disapproval, Ka. I tend to rant and stomp my feet. Yes, let’s take a giant leap forward for womankind (and everyone else) and vote him out! 😀
My appeal to voters out there (and international figures who wish to persuade with their writing about their opinions even if they don’t “vote”) was understated. The main reason is because a cool head is needed. The dragon energy can be tamed and used for the most effective moments. Let’s take a giant leap forward. I’m also wishing us all good luck. I still believe that the majority of people want peace even if they disagree on how to do/be that.
I agree. Ranting accomplishes little and rarely changes minds. And I agree on the desire for peace. It’s global.
Hi Ka…I am not American and so although I won’t be voting I will be observing, and hope for the benefit of women around the planet that this man gets voted OUT.
Change is inevitable.
I agree, Eddie! It’s the only constant…
I agree with Diana. He’s a turd but I get more worked up over the rigged system that is basically a corporatocracy. We the people have almost no impact on politics or how our country is run.
While I agree in massive systemic problems stemming from unchecked corporate power, lobbyists, and the way the system is designed to function is undoubtably problematic in the way that it leads the people through elections, I think we as Americans need to focus on one goal at a time, or at the very least: have groups of people who are. I am focusing on women in this post and electing Biden. However, Biden is not perfect, nor is his party. I do believe a party with a platform that recognizes there is a problem with the way we are in relationship with our climate is essential. I am in favor of science-based theories influencing the public, over conspiracy theories. There are too many talking heads with very little credibility. Everyone is an expert about the “big picture,” but in reality, that is just not true. I wish us all good luck in navigating these intense times. The best we can do is focus on the well-being of ourselves, and everyone who we care for. In the meantime, I will make my voice heard.
I honor your perspective and intentions.
All well said, Ka. I believe in women and the future as well. While I care deeply about the condition of the world and of people, I’ve never been much of a political animal. I suppose the way in which it reduces to the cultivation and presentation of an “image,” and the way this includes a certain manipulation of the moment to achieve and maintain power, has always turned me off from the process at some level. But it has truly been astonishing to me of late to see the ugliness at the heart of it all emerge for us all to see. I know that human decency can just be a charade as well at times, when the media spotlight is on and no one is every really seen in detail. But the willingness of our current President to treat people openly with disdain has been a very difficult pill to swallow. Both parties are far from perfect… But we need good people in these positions at the end of the day. And I understand your position on simplifying this to a vote for what is best for women. I can get on board with that… The true vote in my heart is for something even much grander and all-encompassing, and I try to vote it, if only for a moment, in each day. (I can’t say I always succeed, but when I fail I find my way back to it however I can!)
Thanks for your comment; and I agree in our hearts we are voting for so much more. I’ve been engaged in many conversations about how many people get into politics and what that means. I’m beginning to think, even though I’ve tended to agree with you that’s it’s [politics] about cultivation and presentation of image, and it’s time for me to revisit being more clear on my own opinions, values and judgements, and voice them accordingly. I think trying to “rise above” it all can also depersonalize and let issues like, as in your own words:
“…the willingness of our current President to treat people openly with disdain has been a very difficult pill to swallow,” not meet silence. I don’t need to swallow that pill. And, so I won’t accept that.
Surely there are large issues beyond the myopia with which each one policy or agenda could be discussed. I opened the platform with this post but I don’t really intend to make politics my regular focus. I do research and investigate everyone on the ticket during even smaller elections, that includes locally. I think we do need good people in positions of policy and government; and I do think it’s conceivable and achievable to have good people taking up this work.
Thank you for speaking up on this topic. I thought your video would be about him bragging about how easy it was for him to sexually assault women. The video in your link was interesting, especially the end where he says creating women stars is like creating a building. Like he needs to move on to the next conquest. But his disrespect goes beyond women. I will never forget him mocking the handicapped reporter.
Thank you for your response to this post. We see the same on this. This video reveals so much more beyond its title. Yes so many of us are aware of his blatant disregard for and respect for so many individuals and groups of people. It’s sad. I hope he gets recovery on some level and heals from whatever has been inwardly provoking his cruelty.
I have prayed for his healing, too.
Time to vote him out, Ka!
Thank you, Lorrie!
I sat and watched the video…and the one after that. I just can’t come to terms with so much that is going on. This is such an important election! I just hope there is no interference…or intimidation.
Sweet Blessings, Ka.
It’s likely there will be both, but I hope justice prevails, and those factors are kept to a minimum. Much love to you, Lorrie!!
I had to search to find you ka, catch up on reading your story! AND landed here… oh the divide that is being created worldwide is heartbreaking, and am surfing in the eye of the storm observing! Politics hasn’t worked yet and am surprised people still think this us election will be any different. I don’t envy anyone making a choice to vote as it appears on the outside, but I do believe in Magic and know power has to come back to the grassroots. We need help to bring this about in the form of disclosure which won’t take much longer. We’ll all realise then what we must do. Meanwhile I hold my vision high for newearth to come into being, a return to nature, to love, joy and peace and community. We’ll look back and laugh! Sending love to you and your family.
I’m having a hard time thinking about a time where we get to all laugh about this later, but I will hold that thought and give it some opportunity. I hope you are well in Spain. I don’t know what you mean about disclosure, but there’s a lot of rampant false information going around, and there are a lot of international people who don’t really know how dangerous this current president is because for some reason they are believing a lot of lies about how this president is a savior, which he is not. That is false propaganda. While politics isn’t maybe the best system, it’s the current system. I used to believe in the grassroots, and I still do, but the level of the racial injustice is just too high a price and just too dangerous for the human population to live peacefully; it is systemic. People in positions of power are espousing a lot of false ideas and downright lies, while emboldening intimidation and cronyism. The corruption and the darkness has been leading the way too much and for too long.
Yes lots of false flags, but also truth is seeping out. We must each discern it for ourselves and hold the vision of love awakening humanity, one heart at a time, to align with the love, joy and peace they truly are. As within, as without!We must all remember to see beyond the personalities that are playing out now, beyond the division of left and right and allow the light to come through and bringing in the unexpected. All truth will soon be revealed. Not without shocks, which is where we come in to absorb the shockwaves with our love and wholeness as multidimensional beings. sending love x
Holding a vision for peace, absolutely! I agree on a higher level there is no duality. As a practitioner of Advaita, I’m always working towards equanimity as true awareness. It’s also my call to vote. This world of politics exists and cannot be denied. I participate to the degree I am able, asking for the future to be much brighter, more loving, and more compassionate for all, including the ecology, the life in balance. There are lots of ways that many of us to can see and feel into each other’s hearts, even while on some levels disagree. Some truths we may never know in this lifetime, but patience is our only necessity in such an endeavor. Take care and sending love back to you on the waves xx
