Moscow Mitch, We need those four stinkin’ Witnesses – OpEdNews.com Headline & Best of TREMR

Posted on Updated on

With Impeachment dividing us, 48% for Trump vs. 48% for our Constitution, round two is in limbo – America, in abeyance.

America’s journey has again run headlong into a great uncivil directional tug of war between the titans of stalemate and progression:  The Right Guard, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vs. the Queen of democracy, Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Only the foolhardy would underestimate the unscrupulous bias of the former, or the tactician tenacity of the latter.

Only an imperious chess player broadcasts his next move, believing sixty-five million journeymen will withdraw in submission after he, Castling to protect his king, to cover up the defensive wall of willingly rented plodders plotting for Corporatism, Trumpism and Communism’s wannabe champion, Vladimir Putin – casting Homeland Security toward violence.

At this low ebb in America’s journey, each needs to listen to the still voice within to accept the impeachment of a third president.

Isn’t it more predecessor, than short-lived ineffective discriminatory overreaction to an extremely tanned president, giving rise to a false positive brew – indeed nailing Lincoln’s party to the burning crosses of, Jim Crow; denying affordable health care to all and giving birth to a Trump hoax:  Birther Movement?

After all, before 20 January 2017, Mitch McConnell, smirking proudly, was forecasting one term for Obama, refusing a SCOTUS garland for Garland and arguably paving a yellow streak path, inciting the riotous Don to forbid his courtiers:  staff, cabinet and executive branch to respond to Congressional subpoenas – thus empowering Trump’s American Carnage with, Get over it Mick Mulvaney, let Ukraine eat cake Steve Mnuchin and Sonny Perdue’s climate crisis welcome mat, giving climate scientists a thirty-day-notice for Kansas or, journey on.

With a well-placed Bill Barr firewall to justice, McConnell’s senate largely ignored Robert Mueller’s call to Congressional action – albeit in 2017 Charlottesville, America’s journey was both witness and target of invading white supremacists, with the bigotry gauntlet thrown at America’s Constitution, by an, I think there’s blame on both sides American president.

Too many memories, or myths, blind us to the truth of change, believing less in our deductive reasoning than a forked tongue – comparable to believing Ukraine hacked our 2016 election because, Putin told me so.

Although not an Evangelical Christian, I am an older Caucasian anti-abortion Roman Catholic Italian-American who believes in a woman’s right to choose, more than in a president who, Mark Galli’s Christianity Today strongly suggests is a, profoundly immoral specimen who, should be removed from office for his violation of the Constitution.  So, Family Leader Bob Vander Plaats, who comes to your mind when Better Angels warn, Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves?

What insider Ivanka sees as energized, is more antagonistic display of someone confused about his role in, vengeance is mine saith the Lord.  Nonetheless, an impeached Trump is a far greater threat, for bullies target the most vulnerable:  immigrant children, Ukrainians under attack by Russia and refugee families seeking asylum, yet not even the honored dead are safe from one so unaccustomed to being held accountable for, conduct unbecoming.

Pondering Thomas Paine’s 19 December 1776, these are the times that try men’s souls, reasonable men and women must revolutionize summer soldiers and sunshine patriots, by example, knowing tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered.

Speaker Pelosi has long reminded me of my grandmamma who, over my five-year-old head, in one stroke of a garden hoe, decapitated a snake who dared to slither too close to me in her vegetable garden.  I couldn’t eat tomatoes until graduate school.

Better we emulate our Speaker seeking a balance between denying confessed Trump enabler McConnell any quick and easy out, and knowing when to fold them – than allowing one-dimensional debate questions to diminish America’s journey into Wine Cave crystal ambiance imbibing, and past wins and losses smothered in the cheap shots of hyperbolic rhetoric, instead of substantive answers for those not benefiting from Trump tax cuts.

Both Right and Left feel lost in the quagmire of our own making, but whether our 2016 vote was motivated by the fear that time itself is replacing the, great way of life of holy white protestant valuesor embracing an uncertain future with a Johnny-come-lately commitment to stewardship for both planet and children, even if in an, end of days, both courageous and wise will now passionately pursue the excellence of reason over carnival, positive inspiration above angry tweets and defusing cultural wars with the harmony of loving kindness.

No matter how long America’s journey, Gerrymandering, state voter purges and Citizens United remain our inglorious 21st century stain, but be assured, one person one vote, give me your tired your poor and equal means equalour miraculous Exceptionalism.

A Nation that Cages Children in Abuse, Chaos and Denial – is Broken: OpEdNews.com Headline & Best of TREMR

Should any American soldier be so base and infamous as to injure any prisoner…I do most earnestly enjoin you to bring him to such severe and exemplary punishment as the enormity of the crime may require…for by such conduct they bring shame, disgrace and ruin to themselves and their country – George Washington

With questionable military service commitment, or indeed involvement, men like George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Mitch McConnell, Bill Barr and Donald Trump will never understand our first Commander-in-Chief’s indictment that our American Dream definition of American Exceptionalism, be ensconced in an embrace of moral and ethical treatment of prisoners, by extension, the less fortunate, and ultimately, children – for while such powerful men will die of old age dreaming of life on Mars, they willingly deny this opportunity to children alive on earth today – choosing instead to leave them behind to die of, Climate Change.

Who among James Madison’s Constitution creating patriots gave any Attorney General the right to deny police protection to cities that don’t show respect to police?

What should We the People do about Rudy Giuliani still in Ukraine profaning any democracy’s core value:  truth?

When did we choose to ignore and be ignored by non-voting citizens, thus acquiescing our Land of the Free aspiration and Home of the Brave acclamation to the lost world of reptilian mob mentality?

Where is there support for the government we elect to go beyond making wars and raising taxes to pay for them, to actually claim the right and embrace the responsibility to elevate the lives of all who live in America:  1863 Draft Riots, New Equality laws in 1857, FDR’s New Deal, perhaps?  Does denial of our past and future prove our presidential welcome mat can only tolerate the footprints of those armed with a penis?  Does the transparency of our trolling Russian tool trashing Transgender Americans come from Putin probe excrement, or does our current dick doth protest too much?

Why is Seoul so close to the North Korean border, asked America’s 45th president.  They have to move, insisted Donald Trump.  All U. S. civilians should be evacuated from South Korea, orders TrumpIgnoring military and civilian advisers, The Don commands, Go Do It!

How is it, we still follow men impaling America on wars, assassinations and domestic terrorism caused funerals?

Who is protecting our children in schools when some jurisdictions in the United States are choosing to not expend resources to enforce certain gun control measures perceived as a violation of their misinterpretation of America’s Second Amendment:  forgetting the importance of:

  • A well-regulated Militianot the increasing number of unregulated Right-Wing extremists akin to those who incited tragedy and deadly violence in Charlottesville in August 2017
  • being necessary to the security of a free State, – Since Congress and President Woodrow Wilson created America’s National Guard, 103 years ago, our free State has not needed the ominous portent of massively well-armed ultra-conservative vigilantes to keep Americans secure
  • the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed ignoring the all-important (,) comma before, the right – making the right to bear arms contingent upon the necessity of securing the national security of a former colony transforming into a free State

Our Bill of Rights, which includes the intentionally misinterpreted and maligned Second Amendment, thoroughly abused for Conservative Corporatism and NRA bottom line, became Constitutional law in December 1791 – 125 years before the establishment of our updated regulated militia:  America’s National Guard.

What is it that makes millions of Americans fantasize a Charlie Brown security blanket will save America from increasing violent threats from highly organized white supremacists militia warning us of their intentions when Trump is removed from office by Senate trial or 2020 election?

When will we recognize the swelling bog of our infamous national Swamp is caused by the willing self-immersion of Congressional Republicans, unconfirmed and Acting Cabinet Heads wading with murderous Turkey and Saudi dictators?

Where are our Statue of Liberty priorities, in Trump’s border wall or preventing another Ice-cold detention caged child’s death, whose only crime was, yearning to breathe free?

Why do we taunt a working young female actor, instead of using Social Media clout to decry, None of the Children at the School Are Safe.

How can we not actively emulate the good neighbor spirit of Waffle House customers , rather than White House treachery and elect to reward our Founders by awarding our children the Happy New Year gift of a Democratic president and U. S. Senate, who inspire us to unite in, passionately pursuing a life of excellence.

To fix what Dark Money Conservatives have broken, America must listen to children and attend to the future of Millennials.
