25th Amendment

Putin, McConnell, Trump, Mass Shootings = No USA Homeland Security – OpEdNews.com Headline & TREMR Staff Pick

Long before pretend tycoons, historical Fascists excelled in, divide and conquer the populace by conveniently identifying common enemies, to distract from political coercion, power lust and financial plunder – keeping all yearning to breathe free of fear vulnerable, and doomed to, What is Past is Prologue.

The Department of Justice policy regarding indicting a sitting President, while based on time honored memos from the Office of Legal Counsel, is not the law of the land.  Indeed, our Constitution remains mute on whether a president can face criminal prosecution in court, and the U.S. Supreme Court has yet to address the issue definitively.

Just as an unratified Equal Rights Amendment cannot guarantee gender equality, believing an OLC memo is constitutional law, makes an ass out of you and me.

Inciting Violence is a Felony according to 18 U.S. Code § 373, and thus, an impeachable offense.

Laws protecting education, environment, equal opportunity and peaceful coexistence cannot be changed by a president daring the 25th Amendment to Combine his and Wayne LaPierre’s personal haul on the backs of taxpayers and membership fees – unless we the grassroots, allow such mockery to supplant rational thought.

Still addicted to NRA marketing tools:  Donald Trump and, the only thing that stops a bad man with a gun is a good man with a gun, Wayne LaPierre absconds with millions of NRA member dues, while officials defend police who murder and ignore those who sacrifice to defend.

Most nations experience video games and mental health issues, but too often in America, we wall up our mentally ill in, private prisons for profit.

It’s no longer enough to, follow the money.  We must transform our Judicial system into a competent engine recapturing ill-gotten gain and channeling it from those who profit from baiting hate with fear of losing guns, into investments insuring the welfare of Veterans, teachers and the underemployed of every race, sexual choice and philosophy – revitalizing our DOJ with our commitment to, Justice for All.

We the People have inspired the world’s growing desire for democracy.  Perhaps it’s time we take a refresher course in the courage of Puerto Rico, Hong Kong and Moscow citizens – and rise up to walk the walk of all our Rockets’ Red Glare Land of the Free, talk – realizing atop the list of endangered species Trump’s clan is willing to sacrifice on the altar of short-sightedness for profit, is the human species – assuring homeland insecurity for our children.

In 1886 France, awarded Americans the Statue of Liberty, in recognition of America as the lighthouse to safe harbor – reaffirming its promise when the Emma Lazarus poem was cast onto a bronze plaque and mounted inside Lady Liberty’s pedestal in 1903.

Thus America, given the powerful gift to see ourselves as other see us, cannot now allow Pence Conservatism, Cuccinelli homophobia, USCIS Director Francis Cissna’s Invisible Wall, Stephen Miller’s immigration bias, Epstein pedophilia enablers, Pharma’s Corporatism’s Opioid induced addictions, Trump ineptitude and our institutional systemic greed for power embedded in the Senate and embodied in Russian Rubled, Moscow Mitch – to redefine us.

There is no preserving Homeland Security, no protecting school children and no defending first-responders when McConnell’s trumped enablers avert their eyes from China’s militarizing its border with Hong Kong, Kim Jong Un’s nuclear target practice, with impunity, in the air space of American allies,  South Korea and Japan – and Russia’s attempt at creating a flying Nuclear Reactor – with Putin’s inability to do so without injecting the atmosphere with nuclear radiation.

If Social Media platforms are now accepted influencers, then we the influenced need choose carefully for whom we’re encouraged to vote, for our personal homeland security depends on trusting the diagnosis of the agenda of online posts.

Unless Americans are kept safe from people like Charles & David Koch, Mike Pence, William Barr, John Mercer, Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump, who enable the hate that insists, no room in the inn – without a good credit rating – no child will be safe, and no Homeland Security achievable.

Americans claiming America has always been the best and greatest, need actualize, to those much is given, much is expected.

The lies we tell ourselves, destabilize every family’s homeland security.

It is not mental illness that kills multiple human beings in seconds.  It’s high capacity magazines in military style rifles easily accessible to civilians killing for homeland security for white people.

Donald Trump’s piggybacked envy of despots is the fuse, fueled by desperation rattle of Senate cowards, a hypocritical VP, internationally rented Senate Majority Leader and NRA leadership extortion, but is not, high crimes and misdemeanors – until lite.

The greatest threat to our borders, peace of mind, exceptional idyllic potential, promises kept and Homeland Security is those who enable a mad president.

Trump Locked in by White Supremacists He Reloaded – on PoliticusUSA.com

Posted on

From Dog Whistling Birtherism to working DIA, the madness of the Donald baits us to switch from Russian Probe to Korean braggadocios fire and fury competition – but his Alt-Right support evaporated his smokescreen and now a backlash of peaceful assembly for freedom, is becoming a national movement.

On Saturday August 12, 2017, in the city of Thomas Jefferson’s University of Virginia, thirty-five Americans were injured, nineteen of them assaulted by a twenty-year-old Ohio man driving into them to preserve and protect our history of slavery, racism and second-class citizenship.

While this summer Charlottesville Virginia reaped what Donald Trump has sowed, America, and indeed human decency and potentially humankind are being raped by the perversion of patriotism by Right Wing white supremacists.

In response, an Attorney General who thinks the KKK is, OK until I found out they smoked pot, is a joke, is launching an investigation into the Paris-like vehicular murder of a thirty-two-year-old woman – the incident in support of an administration offensive to the Constitution and truth, colluding with a leader who fears saying the very thing he incites — Domestic Terrorism.

Our Founding Fathers, U. S. Constitution and we ourselves are not perfect, but choosing ongoing educational expansion on a journey of Constitutional Amendments, striving for equal opportunity, is the perfection of mutual respect.

The Ugly American truth is, historically, Conservatives have failed to accept that every person, place and thing matters — Words, Medicaid, Black Lives, Women, Medicare, Native-Americans, Mexicans, Asians, Seniors and Transgenders matter!

It matters that in 2016, we elected a small, thin-skinned excuse of a man, lacking intellectual curiosity and tolerance for differing points of view, whose Bannon/Gorka/Miller appointments excel at staining American character.

Attacking honorable Americans, like Judge Curiel, James Comey, Charlottesville’s Gold Star Khan family and LGBTQ citizens courageously serving America in uniform — what can an isolationist president, incapable of all-inclusive big picture vision amass, but white nationalists?

Since Jamestown and Plymouth Rock, white supremacy has dominated America, imposing self-serving prejudice not only on Native-Americans and people of color, but Jews, Irish Catholics, women and our ancestral immigrants processing past the Statue of Liberty, through Ellis Island, into the Land of the Free.

However, if after 241 years, under white Christian male management, we’re still electing a boy’s idea of what a real man is, perhaps what we should be resisting is our tendency to recklessly swing our electoral pendulum — Flip-Flopping between silence and violence will never penetrate the hypocrisy of Pence pretense, Jason Kessler’s Unite the Right or Trump’s Make America Great Again.

President John F. Kennedy was not only infinitely careful not to back Soviets into a Cuban corner, but was equally emphatic that, America was not going to nuclear war.  Our current 1600 occupant, however, craves the evaporation of all life on the Korean peninsula, in exchange for a macho media image.

It is within our power, to deny him this power, by refusing to play the cards neo-Nazi’s deal, and instead, making it necessary for him, like Nixon, to resign.

Men like Trump, David Duke, Steve Bannon, Jason Kessler and Tom Bossert have proven power to bring out the worst and best in us – the worst, clones of themselves — the best, the rest of us:  Valley Forge militia, Lincoln, women risking lives for 19th Amendment, the American Baptist Home Mission Society, nonviolent responders to violent Jim Crow era — we who defend Mexicans and Muslims from presidential prejudice.

True American patriots, as in the Civil Rights movement and the Women’s Marches, January 21, 2017, exercise peaceful assembly in civility when demonstrating.  It is vital that we are ever vigilant not to become what we’re against.

Instead of responding to radical extremists in-kind, let us embrace the civic ideal of, petition the government:  By the millions, stand tall in DC and regional GOP offices, admonishing Congress to, at the very least, call for the application of the 25th Amendment – or Fast Track Robert Mueller’s investigation, in expectation that Donald Trump has indeed committed Impeachable offences.

And make certain they know we’re there because Trump’s rhetoric caused the death of an American citizen – whose life was snatched away for defending equality and justice for all — paralegal Heather Heyer
