Bill of Rights

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.

Be a Global Citizen:  Take the Knee – Headlined on OpEdNews.com

The honest and true patriot is not a nationalist America First supremacist stealing taxpayer dollars for personal convenience, power or profit.  True patriotism is being the living and breathing embodiment of the best of what our National Anthem, American flag and Statue of Liberty represent.

The patriot’s finest hour and greatest expression, is the potential of, Let Freedom Ring — not just hail to the symbols, but individually sharing and collectively being the actuality of a global Golden Rule’s Good Samaritans.

Those who can’t distinguish Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan or a Wall Street purchased Russian infiltrated administration from non-violent expressions of our First Amendment Rights, are cowards mocking the Home of the Brave.

Despite the freedom afforded a thieving treasury secretary to freely express, the expression of freedom of speech must be barred from sports events, while Supremely Blessed Corporatism Puppeteers Red Map America and Gerrymander our electoral process — non-violent, silent kneeling in protest of anything in America, is guaranteed by:  to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The Bill of Rights may be Exceptionalism created exclusively by America’s Founding Fathers, but its guarantees are not limited within American borders, despite, Weapons of Mass Destruction Bush/Cheney covertly implanting Protest Zones to fence in Free Speech.

Having a president who fails to comprehend the legal responsibilities of his oath of office to preserve, protect and defend our Constitutional freedoms – guaranteed any and everywhere in America – is as much a definition of anti-American, as Russian hacking.

Nonetheless, Freedom of Speech is not carte blanche protection for bully pulpit attacks, white supremacists, hate speech, spitting on nationalist blogger Jason Kessler, advocating vehicular murder, Tiki-torch parades proclaiming, Jews will not replace us, beating clergy with pool cues sharpened into spears — or even granting collectivism’s international money changers, a Citizens United human equivalency.

In a world of followers mesmerized by political TV ads & Fox News, Ted Cruz & Tom Price, Smart Phones & Social Media — goose-stepping for Kim Jong-un and genuflecting to Donald Trump — prioritizing human equality with Justice for All, requires the enormous courage to petition for a viable solution for survival of the planet, by turning the other cheek.

When I was a child, I resented TV sports ignoring the TV Guide schedule and pre-empting scheduled movies, as if movies were second class entertainment.  But when I became a man, Ken Burns documentaries enlightened me – indeed, there are more things in Heaven and earth than are dreamt of in an executive travel ban philosophy.

Continually inspired by DaveThe West Wing and The American President I’m an Italian-American who loves all Americans — and when it’s recognizable, weep during the National Anthem, both in appreciation for what it represents, and somewhat leery of how entrenched our school daze pledge of allegiance to the flag has indoctrinated adults with unadulterated flag-waving.

Beware, global empires, like Persian, Roman and Ottoman began erosion process when, after 250 years, the populace allowed economic imbalance, wars for wealth and expansionism, to tip imperial scales toward decline and fall.

The United States of America, in its 241st year, largely deserting united in favor of, dysfunctional — aided and abetted by K & Wall Streets, has replaced, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington with an abnormal Executive who is a colossal threat to, and forever in peace may you wave.

Is humankind willing to gather at the rivers of racism, sexism, Climate or nuclear extinction, because bully twins, Kim & Don, have wrested the global pulpit from wisdom, maturity, civility and rational behavior?

An American president denying Russian Cyber-attacks on our 2016 elections, Putin’s attacks on Morgan Freeman and Rob Reiner, video plea for a Commission to investigate same, and, in concert with corporate media and like-minded politicians — all but relegating American life in Puerto Rico, to a post-Maria footnote — is far more damaging to American Security, and symbolism than, bending a knee.

Get that SOB out of here, is repugnant to American ideals, but a bent knee, or two, for the right of the people peaceably to assemble, to snatch peace on earth from the jaws of the world’s demagogue duo, symbolizes what is best about America.
