Caregivers for America v. Trump’s Bully Pulpit Tough People Bluster -OpEdNews.com Headline

Posted on

To survive Trump/Pence rout of American Constitutional laws, caregivers of reason need become America’s global healing force for global peace, earth’s revival and both rejuvenation and survival of honest elections for government of, by and for the people – because Donald Trump has irrevocably proven his world view; the real art of his deal:  tough people rising up against a peaceful transfer of presidential power.

Although founded in the midst of treasonous revolt turned miraculously blessed revolution, America was not built by rich and powerful property owners, but by farmers, small business owners and young adults who were the formative catalysts of our first, greatest generations.

The American Dream nightmare, however, remains confusing American one person one vote Exceptionalism, with superiority over all who don’t look like Benedict Arnold, think like Edward Rutledge or behave like John Adams.

America’s Ascension began its Descension when our founding reins of power, were usurped by conservative wealth, for whom power is the thrill of dominating the vulnerable – and the more colorful.

Since, with a sense of entitlement, Europeans in search of plunder, intruded on a massively beautiful, true land of the free, violently conquering and lasciviously infecting its indigenous natives – people who care for global life, have been increasingly ignored by invading bullies.

America’s half-told history is replete with violent, rougher behavior and oversimplified short-sighted responses to, the Golden Rule.  Now, self-destructive denial is wounding those who care enough to give, and those most in need of care.

Rooted in the love of money instead of caring for humanity and planet, psychological clones of Martin Shkreli, CEOs of Tabaco industry and Great Recession causing Wall Street banks, who knew what they were doing, and did it anyway – to Conservatives and Liberals alike – now gluttonously melt our children’s future, denying Climate Change while institutionalizing Climate Injustice – for profit.

Nonetheless, America’s caregivers come in all shapes, sizes and colors – both gay and straight, Democrat and Republican – all, having accepted hands on responsibility to the suffering of others, knowing, good people must do good things for other people – because greedy bigots won’t.

But are we, who are blessed with standing on the enviable side of Dementia, addiction and physical challenges, caring for human beings to whom Conservative Republicans, Billionaires and, after birth Evangelicals are increasingly, deaf and blind, being drowned out by public and private executives seeding hate?

Most Americans know our latest version of America, trumpeting Trump/Pence, is neither renewed greatness nor our finest hour – but more akin to Andrew Jackson’s Indian Removal Act and the 2005 Republican 108th Congress protection for NRA bottom line and gun makers’ immunity.

There is a difference between remembrance of history and reverence for it, and until more of us become caregivers for earth and all life upon it, we risk being buried by those worshiping at the altar of extreme drought and flooding denial, Mistakes were Made and the Mission Accomplished lies we tell ourselves.

Wisdom is founded in listening – particularly to our first caregivers:  mothers, nurses and teachers who know the life-giving value of, always, listen to the children – instead of sentencing them to crippling student loan debt, income disparity and constitutionally ensconced gender inequality.

The mantle of, The Greatest Generation, tarnished by Baby-Boomers, has been passed to new generations, but Lady Liberty’s torch, a smoldering reminder of what can happen to, one brief shining moment, when left in the bloodstained clinched fists of the apathetic and self-indulgent.

Allowing America to be defined by conservative gray-haired men who have failed to conserve trust, hope or safe environment for those who stand in the shadow of their palatial envying monuments to a failed past – cannot be the America we bequeath our children’s children.

The digitally unsavvy v. device dominated; sixties’ spiritual reboot v. hypocritical religious zealots; balanced Biden experience v. charismatic Beto shooting-star – is now taking our measure.

Earth needs America’s continuity, but unless we define victory as more than toppling Trump towering immorality, freedom’s lessons are lost to panic inciting mob rule.

Deniers breed, division in the ranks.  Caregivers nurture the healing power found in the promise of older moderate Liberals united with the reflection of their hungry younger selves.

There is no more important caring gift than a bedside manner that saves all life on earth from our Trump/Pence death rattle.

Are We Prepared for Who We’ll Be When Trump/Pence is done? Tremr.com Staff Pick and OpEdNews.com Headline

Posted on Updated on

If we weren’t fixated on the lowest, now highly elevated – indeed lauded, unscrupulous wannabe lords and ladies, skilled primarily in the art of deception – so morally bankrupt, they swamp the Exceptionalism that could be America – we’d disavow all anti-freedom caucuses camouflaging Liberty, from sea to shining sea.

Who among us are preparing for what will be after Trump/Pence era is over?  Will we, like 116th House bleach out McConnell/Ryan’s 115th contempt of Constitution?  Or will we have been normalized into an apathetic nemesis to human decency?

In this corner, Mark Meadows, champion of trumped GOP trying to avoid insurance query knockout by challenger Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – when in truth, like us, both are co-joined pillars bookending American updates and We the People potential.

The real, Land of the Free and Home of the Brave question is, was Cohen’s Congressional confession a much-needed exceptional myth buster or our new, this is us?

Rarely, however, have even foxy hands of conservative cons, divorced from subtlety and originality, so shamed Lincoln’s GOP and damned any, light upon a hill pretense.  Truth is, Liberal conscience and Conservative shame have too often colluded with the moneyed dens of iniquity and bigotry.

So, are we the foreshadowing of wild boar herded by moneyed masters preaching to a choir for which testosterone for a mythical past, transforms both audience and performers into worshipers, salivating at a gold-plated calf of Republic destruction?  Have American Good Samaritan tendencies already been usurped by the excrement of supremacist lust for power?

Blinded by understandable patriotic fervor following their 1941 9/11, our Greatest Generation can’t be blamed for being the nuts and bolts of a profit-making war machine.  However, were Korean police action and presidential Vietnam/Iraq lies so dazzling we’re still too dazed to differentiate between Socialism and Communism, or recognize, what we elected:  state sponsored child abuse, religious VP hypocrisy and military rape – to see, it’s not just Trump Bull***t?

If loss of blood, limbs, mental health and life to war mongrels’ dollar sign eyes hasn’t yet convinced us of how easily one powerful older man – whether an industrial Robber Baron in search of glory, a Kaiser ensconcing empire, a trumped presidency warped by treason and towering greed, or Wall Street bankers for whom enough is never enough – employing repetitious lies:  the ultimate weapon of mass hysteria, discrimination and destruction – inspiring chanting clones to clamor to touch the underbelly of, where is the bottom, herded in a rage by a tyrant’s identification of the most conveniently salable enemy of the people – then we’re no more perceptive than, The Day After characters oblivious to background TV warnings of a nuclear attack.

True patriotism is the ultimate expression of, love thy neighbor as thyself – not the droppings of false-prophets deceiving the rowdy, by proclaiming, in vociferous disrespect of, Ol’ Glory, that, they alone have accomplished amazing things, better and greater than anyone ever before.

2019-2020:  it is essential that together we create our post Trump/Pence, because we’re all going to need more than a bit of marvelous to survive and thrive after wading through such a wasteland of self-deception.

So, let’s fix our Constitution, currently neither ratifying, the Equal Rights Amendment nor recognizes women as, a protected class.  And before believing the white knit on a red cap, consider this:  only in 2019, have some states managed to outlaw the practice of executing the mentally ill!  And, its estimated that 9% of prisoners on death rows in U.S. prisons are innocent.

Beware!  Time’s infinite relativity is circling around to warn us: the Trump Administration is a merciless Mercer tool – a rerun retooled for how to destroy a Republic, of, by and for the people.

Pity we needed a Reich encore to, by example, reteach us:  no matter how big the lie; repeat it often enough and the masses will regard it as truth. 

The second coming of Buzz Windrip is a forked tongue Don in search of OPM – spinning a tale that confirms, when fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.

If we cannot perceive Trump family and organization as, 1930s throwbacks, then at least consider:  aided and abetted by Russian hacks, the same mindset that annihilated millions seventy-six years ago, has successfully invaded our electoral process and minority neighborhoods – so it’s suicidal to imagine recycling, we didn’t know.

Following our assassinating sixties, it has, arguably, been the nature of Conservatives to deny, and for Liberals to nurture – and now, the attorney turned felon has, under oath, testified, “If Trump loses 2020 Election, there will Never be a Peaceful Transition of Power.”.

So, let us be about the business of saving our Democratic Republic, because, the day after America defeats, Trump/Pence, may be too late.
