Trump is Not the State of Our Union – Headlined on OpEdNews.com

Posted on

After being trumped 24/7 for three years, in what state have we morphed?

Time to believe what Trump tells us of his mind-set – a state of new low in American moments; then, cease and desist dancing to his power point distractions.

Let’s get past media not knowing difference between, new or normal, and realize, the size of un-presidential hands is not as important as where he puts them; a limited vocabulary is less dangerous than a commander-and-Chief of nuclear destruction, surrounded by generals who think they can control him, and congressional lackies who think him immortal.

Arguably, the most telling, indeed, threatening revelation of Trump’s state of mind regarding our Democratic Republic is, I call on the Congress to empower every Cabinet secretary with the authority to reward good workers and to remove federal employees who undermine the public trust or fail the American people – for this vague veiled pitch for power won’t stop with either Robert Mueller or the FBI.

For two hours and forty minutes Mon 29 Jan 2018 American EP-3 Aries was trumped by Russia over the Black Sea, but Trump punts on new sanctions against Russia.

Are Trump enablers, Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association Chair Lisa Kidd Hunt and mega Wall Street firms’ attorney Jay Clayton colluding to set adrift 99% of Americans, in a new sea of red ink?

Do we believe post Trump/Pence, we will be absolved, and all iniquity dissipated in the ebb and flow of Dreamers out, neo-Nazis in?

Is an ally offender the best choice for choosing America’s friends:  That is why, tonight, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to help ensure American foreign-assistance dollars always serve American interests, and only go to America’s friends.

Does a trumped America shake up human development or demean our global calling, into ravenous Hominini tribalism?

Have Conservatives divided us into gerrymandered pockets of divided we fall isolationism, or independent of reason, are we selectively abandoning the United States of America?

The old large church, near August 12, 2017, was energized with standing room only of women and men of all ages — but too few people of color populated, The Haven.  On stage, in a straight and narrow row of chairs, sat the new Democratic Party, professing in their city suits, to be farmers and vets — but only one in four, was female.  This is how The Left elects, The Right.

Are we not yet convinced, it’s not just Trump?  If not by repetitious standing ovations from Congressional Republicans during his teleprompter recitation – then when?

The state of our union is served better by ending false positive that, Progressive Democrats are better Liberals than Liberal Democrats – unless of course, the point is mutual destruction.

America has always engaged more than two political parties.  This flexibility of multiplicity got anti-women’s right to vote, Progressive Reformer, and bigot, Woodrow Wilson elected in 1912, and George W. Bush elected by a well-meaning environmentalist aided and abetted by Evangelicals hating, oral in the Oval.

Our union is tragically wounded when any segment of our population deems their cause of greater importance than the common good — whether the Tea Party & Freedom Caucus or Bernie or Bust, Liberalism is left bleeding in the streets below Trump Tower.

America’s crucial Mission is now, balance.  However, until we pull our multi-immigrant act together in favor of what we’re collectively for, we remain equally capable of losing ourselves in the villain du jour, as we are in finding our truth in worthy Cause Celebre.

Isn’t it for us, in revelation, to dispel the archaic acidic, who erode our moral infrastructure, dividing us from rational thinking, pragmatic accomplishment and listening to every reasonable person asking to be heard?

If instead of trusting after verification, we prove too unsuspecting of embarrassed conservatives who seem palatable primarily by comparison to their Nixon, Cheney and Palin extremist extension, we may lose ourselves in voluminous PC, or anti-people of color diatribe — for the greatest danger to America’s greatness is, self-division so derisive, when Trump/Pence tragedy has past, we won’t recognize what we’ve become.

What then, will be the state of our union?

Dreaming in the Age of Women v. Trump – Headlined on OpEdNews.com

Posted on Updated on

Borrowing from his presidential immorality, Trump’s peddling fake muck, racking over Dreamers, to mislabel them felons, exposes his anti-Americanism, while unknowingly disclosing, Liberty Island embraces hope far beyond our Upper New York Bay and Jersey City shore.

Dreamers are our most recent inheritors of I Have a Dream – and like us, empowered by women marching in the twenties for voting rights; the sixties:  employment rights; eighties: Constitutional Equality/Equal rights Amendment ratification; 2018:  freedom from sexual assault.

So, who will relieve America from the burden of marriage between self-serving good ol’ boy politicians and Wall Street Citizens United:  Women — of every color, size, shape and persuasion.

Trump’s branding Democratic POV as, far more concerned with Illegal Immigrants than they are with our great Military or Safety at our dangerous Southern Border, is but derrière cover for small minds with miniscule hearts, merging forked tongue talking points with double talk fog to hide their failure to care, to govern.

A wave of female candidates, challenging male laden politics as usual, ask:  who’s against separation of church and state; what’s wrong with a woman’s right to choose; where did, I Don’t Know, go with the money raised for, and disappeared by, January 20, 2017 Inauguration?

#TimesUp and #MeToo Avengers seek:  acknowledgement of and believing all who’ve paid more dearly for sexual harassment than Stormy Daniels hush money.

Marching for income parity and gender equality, we knock down walled-up machismo, insisting, Too Big to Jail bankers and Party PAC hacks owe Middle Class budget reimbursement, including punitive charges for me first gluttony.

DACA recipients are diverse hues of America’s future.  They are our dreams dreaming horizons yet imagined — unless by our example, we teach them national security and personal safety are at the expense of people we keep in their place, with paleface determined, predestination.

Every four years, January 20th brings possibilities – as different as, The Ugly American and, ask what you can do for your country.  However, when failing our privilege to vote with empathy for all, American morality is defined by Representatives Cotton, Gowdy, Jordan and Nunes.

At 242, America, after 365 days of political lessons in misogyny, groping and money-laundering, again faces choosing truths to hold dear as self-evident:  resistance to white supremacists and their enablers, demonstrations for gender and racial equality and voting to protect our electoral system from all enemies, foreign and domestic is patriotic service.

Denying democracy’s need to replenish through the evaluation of opposing points of view, is as suicidal for our Republic, as a Trump appointee.  Therefore, limiting another’s free speech, no matter how repugnant to our values, we dishonor ourselves.  Whether far Left university students or hard Right Hillary haters, mob-mentality is a one-way ticket to national dissolution, for anger and fear, set on automatic pilot, target with impunity, our very core.

Both, global Women’s Marches and DC March for Life are manifestations of, Peaceful Assembly and Freedom of Speech.  We cannot honor one if we dishonor the other.

Women and Dreamers remind us, love for God and Country doesn’t need a wall, but rather a foundation of humane acts of kindness toward all inhabitants embellishing our Home of the Brave origin and heritage.

Recognizing what’s good for us, is the common good in common ground, imbues us with untethered courage to champion humankind’s well-being, including embracing those living in America’s five protectorates and territories – with uncommon grace.

When we are better examples, freeing the lives of military & civilian women, city girls and farm boys, from all degrees of sexual harassment — from rape and domestic violence to unwanted touching or verbal abuse – our children will illustrate the truth that lights our way forward.

If we are to preserve immigrants brought here as children, protect CHIP from being used as a GOP chess piece and defend all against racial and sexual abuse, Democrats need unite, above the fray of Big Win braggadocios cavemen, to reset both Party and nation’s table, for human decency, committed to serving only, malice toward none.

Beyond, trust but verify, beware Republicans promising to care, because women are the dreamers writing our next chapter of, The American Dream.
