Let Not Iowa Caucus, Trump Acquittal or Coronavirus Steal Our Juice – Best of TREMR, OpEdNews.com Headline
Before We the People defined ourselves, The Land of the Free with slaves and Home of the Brave while venerating elected old men who sent other people’s children to war – in every region of America, American thinking was vastly different.
If Trump’s altercations against morality, McConnell’s indifference to legality and Pence’s duck and cover religiosity are not what’s stealing America’s juice from Americans, what is?
What’s stealing America from Americans is not refugees seeking asylum but our caging their children; not a 2020 Iowan political anachronism, but rather our divorce from a time when civil, and uncivil, neighbor to neighbor debate decided by acclamation who should be elevated to civil service.
In 2020, what’s stealing America from Americans is neither new, moderate nor progressive, but the resurgence of our old relationships with racism, denial and hero worshiping the unheroic.
Acceptance of a Republic of Trump/McConnell creation, we concede to the systematic decapitation of Constitutional government, not only by an unprincipled, unqualified, unorthodox barbarian with dollar signs for vision, but by historic fears fueling past myths.
Perhaps, the lack of Republicans like Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus, is why Lincoln’s Party cowers in the presence of a Carnival Barker. Truth is the GOP transition began long before the Trump clan came to Washington and its Klan worshippers to Charlottesville.
The droppings which sprouted Senators Cotton, Jordan and Nunes weeds, emitted from the Military Industrial Complex’s reconnaissance for destroyers, Koch, Mercer and Adelson, and less secretive operatives, Rudy Giuliani, Steve Bannon and Bill Barr. These are some of conservatism’s destructive zealots and political parasites – the Trump family, merely puppets conveniently apathetic to Citizens United choking common-sense Climate Change solutions by projecting deceit onto the gullible.
Let’s nurture the polar opposites to that which media has lock stepped our focus, and both ask and answer the important questions:
- Who do we choose to emulate, our 45th or 35th president?
- What can we do to recapture our, one for all and all for one American Dream?
- When: After Trump creates all three branches of government in his own image, or in every 2020 local, state and national election?
- Where: City Councils, School Boards, PTAs, State Legislatures, Governors’ Mansions or join Moscow Mitch in Senate Chamber anti-rooms avoiding witness evidence?
- Why is remaining a Senator more important than honoring the Constitution for which a Senator is elected to uphold?
- How can democracy survive if we focus more on anti-democratic extremists than re-energizing our Gettysburg Address potential?
If assurances from our 45th national administration neither spared nor provided legal Whistleblower protections for active duty military officer, Lt. Col. Vindman and his non-whistleblower twin brother, how about us?
Can we not now see Germany’s 30s-40s in USA’s NRA, NSA, CIA and FBI pledging allegiance to the Don instead of the parchment upon which we stand?
How about the Secret Service, providing protection to a, I can do anything I want president, by paying for sleepovers at Mar-a-Lago with taxpayer dollars, and not reporting this Emolument on steroids?
The only reality in our reality show president is, never missing any opportunity to cheat employees, lie about competitors, steal from the working poor to reward the super-rich, wreak vengeful havoc on those he perceives disloyal, and monetize his presidency.
Don’t be fooled by talking heads nor those who worship talking heads. The Iowa Caucus resulted from a 21st century technical issue, a 20th Century State party leader, helming a 19th century process didn’t foresee – no media hyperbole required.
Polls prove Democrats are carefully scrutinizing for the candidate who can prevent four more years of criminality – and they won’t support infighting. So, Amy Klobuchar, if you want to be the last woman standing, take heed:
A Left shouting angry Socialist or a wrong angry vengeful human profanity?
Remember, the Democratic Party elected the first African American president, nominated the first woman for Vice-President and by popular vote, elected the first Female president. So, will it be Elizabeth Warren’s plans or Joe Biden’s replay?
Iowa surprised us with Pete Buttigieg, until a female Iowan voter explained, I want someone moderate, but new. I’m with her. Establishment is not a dirty word, and Revolution v Status Quo are Conservative Republican choices – attempting to label, true patriots.
Be assured, even if our, life well lived, doesn’t rise to the level of Cher, Michaels Moore v Bloomberg, Kirk Douglas hiring writer Dalton Trumbo or Civil Rights leader Nathaniel R. Jones – at least now, we are more capable in discerning what heroes we worship than our elders who stopped buying undershirts after Clark Gable bared his chest before Claudette Colbert.
Impeachment: When President Trump tweets it, that means that it is Not illegal?!? – Best of TREMR & OpEdNews.com Headline
I stopped laughing at Conservative Republicans when they elected Nixon twice, didn’t celebrate Nixon’s resignation to avoid Impeachment, but now, it’s about more than a president. It is a movement encouraging armed fear to rise again in repetition of sins against humanity.
Primed by men who are redefining America in their own image, speaking language designed to incite our violence against each other, confirms, it’s not just Trump, his limited worldview, nor the narrow mindedness of his VP, Mike Pence.
Long before our Civil War and for decades after our saving the world from Nazism and Fascism – following 1963 Dallas assassination, our Fourth Estate glued itself, and us, to repetitious myopic reporting aiding and abetting America into, a nation divided.
Enter the money changers, men like Adelson, Koch(s), Robert Mercer and our unknown unknowns, cashing in on their post WWII investment to assuage their colossally uncontrollable need to curb our freedom at all costs to us – reducing our lives to their chump change – from Dulles brothers, Joe McCarthy, Kent State, Watergate, inaugural delayed release of fifty-two American diplomats and citizens, Trickle Down, Iran Contra, Bush/Cheney, perpetual oil war(s), Kavanaugh – to a House of Ms. Stefanik, Mr. Conaway and Jim Jordan deserting their oath to the Constitution, in favor of a pledge of allegiance to the 45th president and his executive house of ill repute.
No, not just Trump, but his administration, advisers, deals, and his family; consequently, impeaching Trump will not make America what we thought America was, again – as long as lying to We the People in order to get elected, to elect personal gain, is not a high crime or at least, misdemeanor.
Those denying Trump’s divisiveness has awakened a legion of haters fueled by the fear of losing their inglorious supremacy, are the alliance chiseling away at the vital pillars of our potential for a free society secure in its faith in, justice for all.
So, Trump/Pence is hardly the first time America has been knocked down and counted out, only to rise again above the fray of mob rule, worshiping a new demagogue du jour. Sadly, we’ve been here before, glazed over, willingly reelecting leaders who allow themselves to be rented by America’s worst systemic hackers of our Constitution: both greed of Corporate Boards of Directors directing our branches of government through puppetry, and what was never defeated in 1865 – now released to turn off our affection for each other.
Wake up: America is caught in the web of a political party that long ago abandoned the statutes of Abraham Lincoln, turned its back on Theodore Roosevelt’s environmental dreams, deserted both Veterans and our children’s climate future – all for a president sacrificing Ukrainians and all our allies, to preserve, protect and defend Vladimir Putin.
We need spare another generation of young Americans the over the top-heavy oppression of powerful older white men prioritizing profit over people and planet – remembering most under thirty-five don’t vote, and those who do, State Governments, not Russians, suppress the votes of College and University students.
Being both embroiled and enthralled with live coverage of Nixon-like conduct unbecoming, on steroids, let us try to see through the thinly veiled hypocrisy of trumped Republicans with the civil unity of Middle Class families, the working poor, descendants of America’s immigrant forebears, Dreamers, the fallen we memorialize every May, Veterans who need our thanks and support beyond one November day and finally – through the creative challenge of a thirty-five year-old, Francis Scott Key.
According to the New York Times, the Trump White House is a toxic stew of personality disputes, policy differences, political rivalries, ethical debates and a fundamental rift over the president himself.
Worse still perhaps: when an Exxon CEO and a Marine four star General think the embodiment of The Peter Principal is America’s best hope, you’re in danger girl.
Might I suggest we remain vigilantly focused on the welfare of all the Trump Administration has sacrificed:
- OPM and hires he never paid
- Refugee children in cages
- Kurdish allies, children and women
- Americans beaten
- American Military left to protect Syrian oil
- American Family Farms & Coal Miners
- California Fire Fighters
- Our Environment
Remember too, our Declaration of Independence from leaders abandoning, the consent of the governed – choosing instead to be a destructive government, We the People have the right to alter Mitch McConnell’s Republican Senate, abolish the Trump/Pence anti-American Administration and re-institute a renewed government of, by and for the people – in solidarity with: You can’t promote principled anti-corruption action without pissing off corrupt people.
