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

Posted on

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.

“Here’s Where We Are” – U.S. District Judge George J. Hazel – OpEdNews.com Headline

Posted on

On America’s 243rd birthday, can all Americans prove, in unity, if not civility, that our individual character defines us, obeying our Constitution’s laws makes us exceptional and Justice for All equals National Security.

Our military, nation’s capital and sacred Lincoln Memorial were not transformed into a political event footnote, until our Trump led by the nose Media, aided and abetted by our undivided attention, cast it so.

We are the wind beneath Trump’s GOP wings, rocket-firing his flight of fantasy by fulfilling his most ardent individualized American Dream:  dominating every news cycle.

To save an America made in Trump’s own image, we need, by example, to help all to see the wisdom and self-preservation of, love thy neighbor as thyself – even those for whom, pursuit of happiness remains separating and caging asylum seeking families – and stop expecting someone to listen after we call them stupid.

When the last rockets’ red glare yields to darkness and the last ferociously expensive ego tank display has returned to its rational place, perhaps we will realize how thankful we should be to Donald Trump, his offspring, son-in-law Jared, bankers Deutsche & John Mercer and his comrades, Mitch McConnell and Vladimir Putin.  For without the special brand of patriotism of the trumped, we might still be living under the delusion that our U. S, Constitution, like the World Trade Towers, is an implacable, indestructible diamond rock of Gibraltar – insulated from all harm, foreign or domestic.

However, with Trump’s image replacing Lincoln’s as our national reflection, reason and character profaned by our 45th now reduces American institutions to footstools, vulnerable to our enemies within.

A people mesmerized from sea to shining sea, by torrential texts, towering tweets and insidious instant grams of nonsense worthy of talking heads, weakens our power to perceive the difference between truth and reality show pretense.

America’s education, communication and debating skills have been so debased that the vast majority of Americans unquestioningly believe every utterance of Corporatism’s ads for over consumerism, Mark Zuckerberg’s conjured Boost-it numbers con and thinking a narcissistic reality show host has any intention of letting go of the greatest gig he’s ever fallen into – certainly not after he’s ordered, received and rehearsed for a military show of force around the exterior of our 1600 Pennsylvania Ave property.

In our 243rd year, it’s about time, and how we deal with the timing of past due consequences:  some as old as sexism and racism, others evolving as immigration and Opioid addiction – and some threatening the very life of our planet, as Trump threatens our legal foundation, calling, time out on obeying a federal court order while displaying a not so veiled threat of how easy making America Marshall Law again, could be.

Our Constitutional crisis is that our Constitution is in crisis – and all it took, was, blind obedience to one apathetic ruthlessly unethical man – being the natural outcome of a GOP evolving from Lincoln’s greatness to grandfathering grotesque gerrymandering corruption to make America as unrecognizable as it was, 28 June 1969.

On America’s 243rd birthday, with a birther belching bogus battle stations, with buffoonery besieging Lincoln’s reflection with tanks, invigorating MAGA with, Viable and Possible Census discrimination, our next wish had best be for recapturing mental stability.

We owe our country the birthday present of a, cease and desist order for both arguing about and cheering for, the wrong things – for doing so, we are the wind beneath the wings determined to whitewash our power to be decent human beings:  a Military Industrial Complex mudslinging our Land of the Free, back to Betsy Ross’ Stars and Stripes – forever.

No matter who said what Sinclair Lewis thought, on 4 July 2019, Donald Trump and comrades celebrated, Fascism coming to America, wrapped in the flag.

How long simple ones will you love simplicity?  How long will mockers delight themselves in mockery – and fools hate knowledge?

Most are aware of Trump’s idolatry for Hotpicks:  anti-democratic strongmen, whose anti-humane treatment of scientists in the land of Putin prompted Americans to organize, during America’s 200th birthday year, as the Helsinki Watch, forty-three years before our USDA scientists would need its watchful eye, and a media to, snap out of it, and help preserve, protect and defend curiosity, empathy and knowledge from a president incapable of recognizing that his duty and our honor would be better served if he lavished as much brotherly love on our southern border as he does on Kim Jong Un’s.

Birthdays are a good time for self-reflection, particularly for those still willing to maintain Trump’s grip on America’s nuclear war power.

Proclaim this:  Impeachment isn’t enough – Trump/Pence and members of their Acting Administration, not being, Too Big to Fail – need to go to jail.
