Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was mistaken: our U. S. Constitution was never intended to be a Biblical Rock of Gibraltar – but more an exceptional evolution of enlightenment, reflecting and anticipating even more education through experimentation, a moonstruck tide of ever evolving humane humanity – even revolutionary female ideas of equality.
So, Hillary Clinton is really our 45th – our first Russian president, Donald Trump and we, mesmerized by a white, White House show remain hitched to an Electoral College created by One Percenters fearing mob rule in 1776 – which 243 years later, is a self-fulfilled prophecy – hemorrhaging foreign investments and bloated by anti-American rallies from Charlottesville to, send her back.
Radically I submit, our U. S. Constitution, especially regarding presidential powers, Checks and Balances and the myth that only nine Justices does a Supreme Court make, needs to rise anew.
Yielding to Corporatism’s media marketing us to buy into the over consumerism of deaf, dumb and blind, all we like sheep states of mind, we risk losing, Oh Beautiful.
Our 21st century radical truth reflects the stench of averted eyes, proving not even Bernie Sanders can successfully retrieve us, if relying on millions of Americans rising up to make it so – not if we remain willing doormats to mutual bitterness and twisted lies sponsoring forever domestic and foreign wars – though aided and abetted by Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist and his four conservative colleagues: Justices Sandra Day O’Connor, Antonin Scalia, Anthony M. Kennedy and Clarence Thomas on 9 December 2000.
Still even dust will rise, when shaken from bigoted, malice aforethought.
If absorbed into the universal lessons of moonlight’s ebb and flow, our hopes rise with each new dawn, whether weather is blistering sunlight or clouds flooding us with real time forecasts predicting, America’s reckoning is on the rise.
The potential to rise above the lies of maddening crowds is not in silencing them, but in self-revelation, breaking our silence: America is neither broke – save in our lacking the unity to debunk, Trickle Down in Citizen’s United repeal – nor broken, apart from failing our Statue of Liberty promise.
Accepting, we are our brothers keepers and responsible for earth and all therein, our heads will be unbowed by the tyranny of Hedge Fund traitors, bankers corroding elected officials and the treason of exiling scientific thought, thinking banning learning will impede America’s evolution to eyes resolutely forward and vision on the rise.
Radical Truth: some, like Americans still not into, a more perfect union, will never trust Democrats.
Choices: fixate on those who will never love all Americans as they claim to love America, or we unite with those who are involved with all life on earth – particularly the lives of children who are even now exposed to our reckless elected buffoonery.
Trump’s Acting Cabinet can shoot us with intentionally insensitive tyrannical words. Some authorities can cut us with their eyes until we too, can’t breathe. Some racists may wound us with hatefulness, but as Charlton Heston, if not Moses, told Pharaoh Ramses – what happens next may have already come from our lips, for there are children alive today, even those who have school lunch money, who will have to live with the damage we have done to their expectation of safe food, air and water.
America’s real power is in the global respect and love we regain. Therefore, neither we nor our Constitution need be enslaved, as were our predecessors, by a Justice Department opinion memo granting a sitting president, regal absolution from legal consequences.
Be not beset with gloom, for beyond Congressional Impeachment and indictment or Cabinet invoked 25th Amendment, We the People are the rising tide that lifts all boats and people in hope, to rise.
Radical assurance: not all voting for Trump/Pence are racist supremacists; not all Caucasians disdainful of people of color; Not all rapist are men and not all eager to crush life, like Trump allies, John Bolton, Stephen Miller, Jeffrey Epstein and George Nader. However, America’s indulgences permeate the planet, and denial is not the cure but rather the disease upon which, like McConnell’s indifference, the lives of children hang.
Character and honor demand, like air, we rise on the wings of reason to wisdom, knowing, America is our very next thought, assertion and embrace. Only we can save ourselves from those whose mission it is to program us with lies we tell ourselves about ourselves. Like Neil Armstrong, America’s next one step, must be a, Liberal, giant leap for mankind.
Listen, and we will hear our immigrant ancestors reminding us, what we did to the least among us, we do to ourselves. America’s future depends on the freedom of every child to breathe free the air of renewal – so as life intended, all rise.
America: From Charlottesville to Trump’s ‘Go Back Where You Came From’ TREMR Staff Pick & OpEdNews.com Headline
Our bankrupting Brander-in-Chief is a weapon of mass destruction, sparing few cherished American institutions. So, isn’t it time we refrain from identifying his behavior as merely distractions from his mounting Russian/Assange Wikileaks political and legal problems – and stop allowing him to lead us by the nose in his game of ring-around-the-Rose Garden, as he does our media?
Yes, our nation’s chief bully specimen is feeling challenged by people he feels are only for groping, but if you think Donald Trump is defeated, please revisit his proud confession: When someone attacks me, I always attack back…except 100x more, because this is Trump’s way of life. Thus, our old pro chess playing Speaker wisely chooses the tortoise over the hare, knowing it’s better to elect a Democratic Senate for indictment and potential jail time, than settle for an Impeachment slap on the wrist.
Trump continues to prove, like any cornered animal, he will not go gentle into that good Tuesday 3 November 2020 night, for he has cast his lot with, fine people on both sides, go back where you came from and perhaps most telling of all – it doesn’t concern me because I know many people agree with me.
Indeed, our sane and rational thoughts for America post Trump/Pence must prepare now for those all across our country salivating over photos of unarmed people of color shot in city streets or asylum seekers caged in American detention centers – for both they and GOP have been trumped by the stench of, Make America White Again.
Donald Trump’s need to be praised eliminates any ability to keep a secret, be it Russians or ICE raids or, his real intention that goes far beyond mere distraction: The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four “progressives,” but now they are forced to embrace them. That means they are endorsing Socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats!
Tag, we’re it!
Dueling tweets, however, fixate us on the problem: one whose ability will never rise beyond the simplicity of a short attention span. Those who are not among the 54% seeking, Sweeping Change that sets us free from corporate gouging, governance by fear of losing supremacy – and the domestic terrorism of a president equating disagreement with him, to treason – fuel the coming storm.
Our fate yields to our choice: the narrow path of reason to unity or the broad road of chaos to destruction. Worshiping at the tower of deceit, racism and inhumanity guarantees freedom’s demise. To recapture our balance, wisdom beckons us to be a nation of people who dispel denial, eradicate ignorance and make the wind and the sea obey our energized Johnny-come-lately attempts at climate justice.
A memo from a GOP strategist to Trump Administration concluded Census citizenship question would disadvantage Democrats. This is the character of a Twitter-in-Chief colluding with social media stormtroopers fond of conspiracy theories, hailing the Southern Cross, wearing ammunition belts in public parks and murdering peaceful opposition.
Meanwhile blotched by the yellow streak of rented Conservatism, honorable humanitarian investors with $34 trillion demand urgent climate change action, but USDA exiles Climate scientists to Koch Bros’ Kansas.
The point is, we have ensconced Trump into our social diet: a secret Border Patrol Facebook Group where Agents joke about Migrant Deaths and post sexist Memes. Now we need a cleanse: resisting not just DT, but the delirium he resurrected in America. Unlike Trump and company, we must persist with the dignity, intelligence and honesty he lacks, for in all probability, Trump had no idea that the Congresswomen he attacked, are, arguably, more American than two of his three wives.
And therein festers our exceptional problem: Trump’s GOP is the visible infection come to a head atop our historical foundation of, America’s molasses to rum to slaves triangular trade, economic security stabilized on the backs of Antebellum enslaved families, 1919’s All-American Red Summer and the crooked white line from the White House of Tallahassee’s Dozier School For Boys to that, the trumped elected, for a more imperfect union in 2016.
Fifty-seven years ago, President Kennedy both proclaimed our going to the Moon and, to Khrushchev missiles in Cuba, this far but no farther.
Fifty years ago, Americans landed on the Moon, yet twenty years ago John F. Kennedy Jr died in a plane crash just minutes away from his earthly destination.
If we stop resisting the real enemies of a colorful American Dream, America will die. If we don’t start resisting Climate Change, the world will also.
Yet, know this: Only Love Remains – so anything we do that mirrors the hypocrisy of Mike Pence, the tactics of Mitch McConnell or the racism of Donald Trump, defeats everything America was created to be.
