Domestic Terrorism

Trump Racism, GOP Cowardice and Climate Denial v. The Impossible Dream – OpEdNews.com Headline & TREMR Staff Pick

Posted on

As long as we allow a 24/7 corporate owned Media hooked-up with a human impeachable offense, gluttonously consuming every news cycle, our ability to think for ourselves, declines the opportunity.

However, if we must wear a media post-debate, winners and losers straight-jacket, may I propose, on behalf of, We the People, who care for all:  civil, yet passionate, substantive debate between ten mutually respectful adults, discussing a gamut of solution options, whose policy discussion not only exposed the cowardice of Congressional Republicans swamped by Trump – but also tugged at the prudent, anchor-in-place, Independents- winning the night.

Super heroes and the wealthiest among us share little in common.  The most moneyed connected are those who send the best of us into foreign wars, while tampering with our elections and ignoring gun violence, racism and sexism that remains America’s truest domestic terrorism.

If impossible to see ourselves heroes of our generation, then let us at least prepare a better future for the potential heroism of the next, realizing where we find the exceptionalism of a universally welcoming American Dream depends on where we look.  And it isn’t in the perjury of the Mushroom Cloud weapons of mass destruction inheritors.

If 2020 voters, and non, seek ballot guidance in headline hyperbole, putting America in the hands of its dividers – disciples of Robert Mercer and the Koch brothers – not only the shameless brashness of Jim Jordan, Kellyanne Conway and Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas), but the silence of the self-proclaimed lambs, Mark Meadows, Lindsay Graham and Mike Pence, and the treachery of Devin Nunes and arrogance of Mitch McConnell, then…

  • Homeland security will be the euphemism of racists
  • Health-care, a myth
  • Gender and sexual equality sacrificed
  • Privacy absorbed by The Cloud, Alexa, iPods, iPads, Equifax, Student Loan Bankers, cellphones, online surveys, GPS
  • All Tweets, Instagram, Snapchat, bathroom sounds, medical conversations, passionate missionary spooning – stored for marketers profiteering from collusion with Wall Street, K Street and secretly funded politically Conservative political advertising

We don’t need no stinkin’ Russian Johns.  Fingering our climatic devices, we give it away, for free!

People like Dan Coats and Robert Mueller, who seem to those needing quick and simple sound-bites, to be hauntingly hesitant, are patriots knowing their words have rippling legal and moral consequences, and so are examples of thinking carefully before speaking.

Failing to emulate patriots like these and our Founding Fathers, renders us incapable of venturing toward the impossible vision of what should be possible, thus probably failing to achieve what is possible.

Trump has no strategy beyond the last mob chant ringing in his ears, but be assured, his fear of another dawn exposing the crushing truth that, it isn’t just the words he speaks and excuses he makes, but the very life he leads that is the lie – and it’s the devastating realization:  Trump did not make us, nor the foundation upon which he stands.  We did that, and the frequent ferocity of our national political pendulum swing, is proof of our fear of forward moving change – that waits for no person, place or thing.

Mesmerized by the repetitive superficial take-aways levied by talking heads, we play a most reckless game of Roulette with the lives of children already alive in 2019.

Aided and Abetted by government climate injustice and Pharmaceutical and health insurers climate indifference – ignoring foreign children in cages as prequel to an American experience of lost habitat, stench of polluted air, nation-wide Flint-like water and deadly food that Climate Change denial bequeaths all American children.

The leaders who fail to be a shining beacon of law-abiding ethics are the direct result of those of us who fail our highest judgment call for Justice for All:  verifiable elections.

The Presidents of Russia and the United States know who the purveyors of hate, white supremacy and fanaticism are, and they make pawns of them to destroy the freedom of thought a multi-cultural American society produces.

So, The Don conveniently dons himself in the cloak of bigot racism to solidify American fascists who, unable to distinguish between Socialism and Communism, slip out of their bedsheets to dance with Neo-Nazism – because minus an, Out of Many One core, they see only a Blackhole future.

Laws alone are neither solution nor salvation without incorruptible lawmakers.  Our Civil War and first presidential assassination did not defeat America’s inner domestic struggle with racial hate, sexual prejudice and gender bias – as Jim Crow and the assassinations of the sixties proved – because the pain we’re seeking to cure is rooted in the fear that we are not good enough, unless proving ourselves better than those who differ from us.

The real 2020 question is, will we hold these truths to be self-evident:  all are created equal.

Trump in the Oval Office – Endgame, Good Ol’ Fund-raising Revival or Coup? – OpEdNews.com Headline

Posted on Updated on

1973 Nixon’s DOJ sued Donald Trump for racial discrimination, before resigning in 1974.  In 2019 first Oval Office address, the accused again proves himself unfit for the office of President of the United States of America – and that he and his chosen Vice, both suffer from the same on-camera acting coach.

Morning after talking heads to the contrary, the big news isn’t, 51% of Democrats identify as Liberals, despite all branding by Koch heads like, Karl Rove.  It’s that following NRA’s 45’s regurgitation, there was a glimmer of hope, that TV hosts finally realized, this joke isn’t funny anymore.

Eye-rolling smirks and derisive laughter of a Fourth Estate confusing their First Amendment responsibility with labeling our inept apathetic Narcissist-in-Chief, endangers national security.

No one should feel unsafe in the United States of America – not fearful of a government manufactured crisis; not subjugated by the super-wealthy; not for a Shutdown stunt as manipulative as Bush/Cheney’s Axis of Evil wag – because, everyone wishing to work is an essential worker – essential to family, America and humankind.

America is an ongoing conversation, with Americans now at a troublesome lull before, Blowing the Bloody Doors Off – where it’s reasonable to say no to the unreasonable, to secure a conscientious path forward to all-inclusive freedom, justice and affordable health-care on a planet we’ve reduced to devouring itself.

When global leaders brand the less fortunate as, a national emergency, it’s usually a preamble to anti-humanitarian ethnic cleansing.

When a trivial thinker talks himself into a corner, treed by colluding with devastating delusions, callous illusions and unapologetic deceit – expect Marshall Law, recklessly laced with domestic terrorism.

The Alt-Right base of GOP support can no longer insult our intelligence, without consequence, for we know Six immigrants on the U.S.-Mexico border in the first half of fiscal year 2018 whose names were on a federal government list of known or suspected terrorists according to CBP data – does not a National Emergency make.

Yet, Donald Trump claims that his border wall, really does have a higher purpose than next week’s pay.  And the people that won’t get next week’s pay, or the following week’s pay, I think if you ever really looked at those people, I think they’d say, “Mr. President, keep going. This is far more important. 

Indeed, Trump is right, there are some things more important than the next paycheck, but nothing inflicted on Americans by his Acting Cabinet heads, gerrymandered 115th Congress or Executive Privilege threat to muzzle Robert Mueller’s report, is anything more than the fungus of Nixon/Bush/Cheney on steroids.

Hopefully, the new look of our 116th House of Representatives, is more than skin deep, smarter than poopooing all over thirty-something and wise enough to see, America’s real wall crisis is not a trumped bait and switch issue.  The real wall is the one our 115th Congress terrified of Trump’s Base, built on the foundation of Ante-Bellum Plantations and the backs of Taft’s Little Brown Brothers.

We need Legislators who share the pain of their constituents – feeling the effect of Trade Wars on farmers, government shutdowns on wage earners and the weight of student loan servitude.  These walls are constructed by those believing another’s gain is their loss.

The real wall enforced by a first ever press room visit, Oval Office ramblings and Rose Garden promises, is being blind to the power source fueling Trump’s astounding ability to manipulate media focus.

Truth both hurts and sets us free and awaits discovery in our interrupting the uninterrupted fixation with false prophets:  Since 20 January 2017, we’ve been misgoverned by a reality show host suffering from borderline insanity.

The cure for this disease, is electing people who can marry the art of television with, love thy neighbor as thyself – because unless their personal income is negatively impacted, regardless of what happens to others, a third of voters will vote to reelect, Trump/Pence – the masters of nothing, save prevarication.

Republicans are elected by Americans feeling anxious about losing their perceived proprietary position in an American world, without end.

Shall we now be about the business of our humanity and stop fielding what Trump is pitching; aligning with diversity’s power insuring peace of mind for all, particularly Veterans, civil servants, Farmers, First Responders, Teachers, Nurses – freeing all children from cages – knowing America’s best border security is, Justice for All.

We protect America’s borders by investigating:

Know this:  some men just want to watch the world burn. Fixating on them alone, allows their walls to obstruct America’s, Razor’s Edge.
