Trump’s Media Assisted Grift v Mothers Like Susan Bro and Aretha Franklin – OpEdNews.com Headlined

Posted on

The evidence of our never being completely a united people, is undeniable – particularly every time a segment of the population confuses patriotism with, Space Force grift and belief in a supreme being with faith in a pied pipping carnival barker.

There are truths we must finally face as self-evident:  the ideals of perfection enlightening our American Dream, in mere mortals is, like evolution, in constant motion – sometimes seemingly blind ambition following the yellow brick road with no guiding beacon of light from The Hill.

Hope’s truth is, our journey to perfection doesn’t require perfection, only effective peaceful assembly.  Our dreams of unity, civility and humanity are nonetheless justifiably encouraged by our courage to learn from our past without repeating it – extending joint ownership of Justice for All, to all.

Living in a trumped America, where a towering fee allows firmly ensconced organized crime in private enterprise and multi-layered governments – there is little value in media headlines and political talking heads unless serving to ignite truth seeking citizen sleuths.

When a people are both poised and tainted by nefarious Branding as prerequisite for infectious misconceptions, understanding is bombarded by cravings for the convenience of, obvious villains and marketable heroes.

Dispatching Andrew Jackson racism, John Wilke Booth hatred, Trump/Pence/Sessions bigotry, Ivanka, Laura Ingram & Dana Loesch ruse, and denying access to hacks like, Putin, Sheldon Adelson and their Koch brothers – is Best Evidence of American greatness.

Being Newton’s equal opposite reaction to evil genius, let freedom ring from sacred parchment through us, to Native-Americans, African-Americans, Asian-Americans Latino-Americans and Puerto-Rican Americans regardless of sexual preferences, reassuring America’s New Deal Reconstruction.

Rescuing abused refugee families seeking asylum, we rescue ourselves.  Stoking righteous indignation for leadership elected for the proposition that all are created equal, having disappeared hundreds of innocents – we receive the fruits of an administration unhinged from morality.

Now we rise!  Demanding all political parties melt the frigid grip of ICE on families running from abusive governments as abusive as our own, we eject Conservatives choosing KKK residue of white supremacists, as a family value.

In a child’s distress, mothers are a healing balm.  America is now in distress and Mothers, whether married suburbanites or single Millennials, whether Caucasian or full of color, believers in a universe beyond themselves or going it alone – regardless of political affiliation – mothers remain the too often overlooked power necessary for America to heal itself.

Mothers, and the women they elect to rebuild community, neighborhoods – fighting the good fight for a better future for all children – including mothers too often invisible to us because of their color, who like Susan Bro – snatch hope from the jaws of tragedy.

Although seldom heralded for their heroism over America’s 242-year war with itself, daughters, wives and mothers of all colors, all beliefs – all with their own dreams of service to national and individual ideals – have prevailed on the battlefields of preserving children, protecting family and home and defending every women’s right to income parity.

Courage isn’t a smearing louse with a Tiki-Torch, and Charlottesville is no more ground zero nor frontline in America’s infighting over racial equality and gender justice, than any town USA.

Like Virginia State Troopers, Berke M.M. Bates and Lt. H. Jay Cullen – Alesia Thomas, Malissa Williams, Miriam Carey and Tanisha Anderson probably didn’t plan on being another tragic, but temporary headline.

Historically, Liberals have been battling Conservatives with one arm tied behind our backs – not only by the cold and timid avoiding the arena, but by our own duplicity regarding women and people of color.

Headliners and heroes are chosen for their eye-catching potential for convenient media resale, because we are addicted to, if we can label it, we can shelve it without expending any energy for internalized comprehension.

Charlottesville’s August 2017 was not about Confederate statues, but proof of what can happen when our institutions’ top-down ringleaders betray the essence of, The Land of the Free – choosing to grant Carte Blanche to those fearful of losing supremacy over others – whether possessed by the evils of NRA gunmen, corporatism’s sexual predators or government bigots.

Neither paralegal Heather Heyer, nor her Mother, Susan Bro began August 12, 2017, expecting or hoping to become media sensations, but unlike the dozens injured that day in Charlottesville by a hate driven car – death snatched a daughter and enlisted a mother – for the work yet to be done.

Like mothers everywhere, knowing the fear hate breeds clings desperately to the defense of its Last HurrahSusan Bro, nonetheless persists.

Let us sing praises for and follow the example of Mothers!

Shameful Survival Strategy: Short-Sightedness Surging Self-Destruction – OpEdNews.com Headline

Posted on

Severe self-serving sins projected on citizenry seeking missing refugees who sought only solace, by soliciting to slip away from State sponsored slaughter – sharply switched into shipped scared skirmishing siblings screaming for snuggles – separated by ICE shielded sentinels strayed from sanity – stranding suckling squirts supplicating for succor, succumbing to superficial slumber in strangling State system.

Suspended by salacious supporters of segregation, seeing no Samaritan’s Socialism in sight, souls settle for a smidgeon of scraps, while succeeding selfishness spews from shameless speakers successful at solicitating the unschooled to serve society’s scoundrels in scheme to shift from serene speech, to scatological simplicity of supererogation.

Sadly, sucker-punching sublime story-telling seers, is striking out on scoring scoop:  middle finger salutes signal strings to spurious schooling, not superiority.

Still sustaining shallow scandalous sessions, with Sessions stoking and stroking shared sanctuary of sweeping squires with sinister secrets – Eden’s serpent savors survival, slandering supreme settled law.

Slim is the service of self-serving special interests, shunning soul searching, surrendering us to swamps speeding slavery to substandard selections, smearing our presidential seal with stupidity.

Scurrying for support, surrogate’s set-up stories, sacrifice sanity’s savvy on a scorned specious speedway surfaced by sneaks stealing solutions for our studiously salvaging solidarity from synthesis of silly stand-ins.

Spotting our susceptibility to self-centered simpletons – hacking serpents and political snakes – swiftly shake off sharing super lies swindling seniors and swinging sincere sophomores into suicidal strife.

Straightaway, sternly sling suspicious scrutinizing of society this season and sympathetically seize non-voters with the sufficiency to show up, to speak-out against slippery slope of separateness, for sharpened sticks are not soldiers-at-arms but savage stucco stupor – salient sauce for sham shepherds.

In this short-lived stage of spineless substitutes spontaneously submissive to staunchly slipshod behavior, shoddy information spat from supporting-roles serving shifty swain, as suddenly steeled Supers speechifying for subversive skippers; serious singular stomping grounds spare scholarship, sloppy seconds in the name of, We the People:

  • After FDR’s 12 April 1945 death, America’s wealthiest Military Industrial Complex warfare class implemented first fifty-year plan to control every American’s choices, social status, income and willingness to wage war to enrich them
  • 170,000 American military personnel occupy 150 countries
  • Jeff Sessions advertises Guantanamo still open; no trial necessary
  • Americans in harm’s way for nearly seventeen years in Afghanistan
  • Donald Rumsfeld’s knowns and unknowns
  • Using 9/11 as excuse for unlawful activity, Bush/Cheney order Alberto Gonzales and Andrew Card to John Ashcroft’s hospital room to intimidate deputy Attorney General James Comey into secretly reauthorizing Domestic Surveillance

August 11-12, 2017 America’s new domestic tribalism proved itself as dangerous as any international terrorism fueled by our war mongering ultra-moneyed.

Any corrupted administration easily colludes with power – so, have asylum seeking parents forever lost families because Trump’s America is trafficking  brown refugee children?

Power is not made in the image of a president for whom a quick read of Proverbs’ sixth chapter, would expose as the very nemesis of all things divine.

However, refraining from judging others is all-powerful:

  • Not all Evangelical Christians, are old, overweight Caucasians
  • Not all: hypocritical conservatives deserting Ecclesiastes
  • Not all: radical, love it or leave it zealots blind to Separation of Church and State
  • Not all: NRA brainwashed with Open Carry
  • Not all: single-issue voters
  • And because most Evangelicals are Jesus Christians, not trumped Christians, not all Evangelicals vote for a trumped GOP

America’s super power resides in our connectivity with and emulation of all-inclusive community.

Many “S” words spell Donald Trump, but his debacle will slither to silence for both supporters and detractors if we don’t sink into the savage peace.

To the degree we resurrect, recommit and renovate, all men are created equal, our lives will prove honor and courage live in the gender and racial equality of 12 Strong, Separation of Church and State, our Free Press and right of, peaceably to assemble.

Then, like Eleanor Roosevelt, Lincoln, Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, Women’s Marches and Rachel Maddow – we will enlighten current and future Supreme Court Justices, Congressional members and presidents, by ballots cast – of our joint obligation to preserve, protect and defend the United States of America with Justice for All.

Now, heal our nation’s self-inflicted wounds.
