There’s More to America than Trump & Media Scratching Our Surface Itch -OpEdNews.com Headline – Best Of TREMR

Posted on Updated on

If at 93 Her Majesty’s memory of Princess Diana and love of family has evolved Abdication, can’t Media on both sides of the pond manage to report true love truth instead of conjecture of brotherly division?  And aren’t the revelations of the most substantive Democratic debate, more important than a MIA handshake?

When will Media distinguish news from superficial gossip – perhaps when, the religious ask for salvation in places of worship instead of political rallies; when we seek more female statesmen in politics than poll disciples; and when, We the People, knock inwardly for lasting solutions.

Wall Street greed is not a surface problem, but rather as ingrained, and as old, as a third of America’s 1776 citizens clinging to the status quo of landowning white male superiority.

To understand believers of Trump’s incompetent dishonesty, Pence’s hypocrisy and the duplicity of Lindsay Graham, Devin Nunes and Mitch McConnell, we need only recall Sarah Palin’s 2008 divorce from truth, prepping their path.

Each of us must choose:  believing Trump is the root of all our evil, thus continuing to dig America a shallow grave in which to bury his destructiveness, while remaining a people grasping at the pablum of advertised homogenized banalities – or step up to the truth that sets us free.

In every age, there have been people who claim to make America great, while degrading it, for their own pleasure, aggrandizement and fortunes – like the 1933 Bankers/Business Plot attempting to replace our 32nd president with someone like Donald Trump.  Using political puppets to make us pawns was conceived by J. Edgar Hoover and bequeathed to a willingly corrupt, Bill Barr.

So, it’s not the first time America has been yanked out of our American Dream into the nightmare of magnets sticking us with immoral opportunists like, Mrs. 2016 Florida, Karyn Turk who stole $219,000 of her mother’s Social Security checks.  Nor is it the first time we’ve elected leaders who keep company with men like Roy Moore and Jeffrey Epstein.

But maybe this time, we’ll beware of the contribution of phony patriotism:  the Military Industrial Complex, Dulles Brothers, Vietnam lies, pushing Middle Class upward mobility down the slippery slope of Trickle Down, and Bush/Cheney’s Mushroom Cloud – preparing the way for Too Big to Fail Wall Street bankers and their underbelly of support in the KKK and America’s Neo-Nazis.

From Tues 21 January to Tues 3 November 2020, who will honor America’s exceptional quest for an impossible dream?  Senatorial accomplices after the fact signing a 232-year-old pledge of impartiality, an occlusion attempting to block any executive stoop to conquer con, with, period, full stop, or patriots voting to remove Citizens United and settling for less from our, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

How many times must Trump publicly declare his independence from Congress and Constitution:  I don’t know him at all, don’t know what he’s about, don’t know where he comes from, don’t know nothing about him before we believe the GAO:  Donald Trump and his Administration broke the law?

Whether, breadcrumbs, yellow brick road or hyperlinks, we need to learn to learn from the bridges connecting our past and present, if in our future, we hope to save ourselves from, what is past is prologue. 

Whether America is in the best or worst of times depends on how we treat each other in whatever times we’re in, for whatever time America has left, Americans will need allies, scientists, teachers and incoming refugees to help us reason, brainstorm and act.

Arguably, most dangerous of all:  those who believe, I’ve done nothing wrong, for Trump’s Pièce de résistance is trumping Christians and mesmerizing seekers of simple solutions when facing the complexities of racial and sexual differences, gender inequality and our planet’s loss of food and clean water resources due to Climate Change.

How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? – Proverbs 1:22

We need replace superficial thinking with in depth solution-oriented questioning:

  • Stanford study reports, normal human body temperature has decreased from 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit to 97.5 for men and 98.0 for women. Why?
  • Why are parts of Africa being invaded by millions of Locusts?
  • Why is it still legal to kill the mentally ill, 57 years after, I Have a Dream?
  • Why are there now twice as many suicides as homicides?
  • What is gained by denying the dangerously destructive potential of Climate Change?

Truth is, we have been preconditioned for automatic responses to our differences.  Need cinematic cold water in our Dorian Gray face to absorb this truth, see, The Public, and then revisit any ad, news program, poll, petition or campaign of any kind – and you’ll see, seeing is believing.

 

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:

In the midst of self-serving, reelect me please, political rhetoric, most Americans retain more in common with the heroism of Marie Yovanovitch, than increasing gun violence.

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.
