Trump’s COVID-19? Weapon, Miracle, Hoax or just a Parade Passing By – OpEdNews.com Headline and Best of TREMR

In this age of real and imaginary extremes, conspiracies and lockstep mindsets, where too many have become self-hypnotically vulnerable to potential electoral crucifixion, so nailed by our self-decapitating federal government:  no time for sneers, smirks nor unmasking for, I told you so. 

Long before Tim Russert unintentionally parted The Red Sea of America’s Red and Blue states, exposing the myth of our, united we stand, what impressed me most about Charlton Heston’s pre-NRA Moses response to a leader who thought himself a god, was:  an imperious leader can easily drown his loyal followers in their belief in false prophets, and destroy a nation and civilization far senior to America. 

Our 244-year venture has been compromised by the malignancy of Too Big to Fail latching onto America’s Marshall Plan and ACA cells, by humans ignoring, To whom much is given, much is required, who washed their hands of justice and equality for all, long ago, savoring their abandonment of planetary stewardship. 

Nonetheless, from its inception, America’s democratic ideals were the golden calf for millions.  Through feast and famine, Civil and world wars, assassinations and deceptions, Depressions and Recessions, our international standing was, the good:  one person one vote, the bad:  our over-consumerism at the expense of the less fortunate, until the ugly American:  an unapologetic, inept and apathetic fake, was lifted up from the glitter of fool’s gold by the chess masters of greed for power and dominion over earth and all life upon it.

What if our 2020 elections are a revelation precipice, allowing us to look into the promised potential of either America’s self-destruction or self-renewal?  Will we see the hardened heart of Ramses II or a new Moses?

Will we vote to be remembered for our majestic monuments to slave owners, catatonic enslavement to Black Friday purchased devices or for our artistic humanity and indiscriminate human kindness?

For months America’s president kept the tragic potential of COVID-19 secret from, Proud Boys and Never Trumpers, Republicans and Independents, Democrats and Undecided – from those who worship the ground he walks upon and those who wish he were six feet under it. 

Why?  So, he can stay out of jail, saved by bone spurs, pretending ill-gotten gain would make him in the image of Khizr Kahn’s heroic son, patriots like Senator John McCain or veterans Hunter and Beau Biden?

In 2016 didn’t we put away childish things:  Lady Liberty’s promise, FDR’s New Deal and John Kennedy’s eagle-like Cuban Missile Crisis strategy:  extending the perfect balance between arrows and olive branches to prevent global nuclear destruction? 

If so, is there enough retrievable, Ask what you can do for your country, to elect civility, unity and the sanity needed to save our Constitution from the realization of a founding fear: a tyrant could manipulate public opinion and come to power on the shoulders of misinformation and emotional mob rule?

Although armed with more information than he cared to share, Trump risked the lives of his Base by holding large indoor, and outdoor, events with supporters who, at his bidding, attended without masks or following social distancing guidelines.

Now it seems, his undercutting scientific expertise and retarded response to providing PPE(s) to hospital personnel is having its way with him. 

Be assured I do not wish Donald Trump dead, for any reason, including, but not limited to:  Mike Pence actually believes that his religious beliefs make him superior to people who don’t think, look or act as he does. 

Tragically however, even in the throes of possible death, Trump enablers fear sharing truth:  a White House source tells reporters, the president’s vitals over last twenty-hours were very concerning, and the next forty-eight hours will be critical – we’re still not on a clear path to full recovery, while Walter Reed military Medical spokespersons claim, the president has been fever free for over twenty-four hours, we remain cautiously optimistic, but he’s doing great

Clearly, it is difficult to trust what we’re told about, or by Donald Trump, as most often, it fails to survive fact checking, especially when our 45th has intentionally endangered American Security with national instability, repeatedly.

What is American truth: 

Beyond 2020 elections, we need uninstall Citizens United and Corporatism’s political puppets, and reinstall government of, by and for all of the people

Both Moses and Joe Biden overcame stuttering, to lead their people.  Don’t We the People, need leaders who help us overcome, What is Past is Prologue?

COVID-19 under the averted eyes of our, wartime president has aided and abetted his negligence, in 1000 deaths each day for the last five days in several states.  Texas in Triage mode choosing who gets hospitalized to Gurneys in hallways hoping there’ll be enough ventilating machines to save them from refrigerated trucks outside for those for whom there’s no room.

And still we fail to bridge the gap between reality and our homemade myths.

In his own words, Mark Meadows proved, everyone can come on TV and provide their opinion, confirming that Trump’s fourth Chief of Staff, like Pompeo, Munuchin, Kavanaugh, Pence, Barr, Cheney and Nixon – too many Americans have yet to manage navigating the bridge from gullible to discriminate.

What Protesters, state & local police and Barr’s get low gestapo must understand, and all living in America need to internalize is:

Our Constitutional right to peacefully assemble does not include acts of violence, including throwing Molotov Cocktails or attempts to damage Federal property.  Doing so, we become clones of our adversaries and enable our unqualified presidential nemesis.

The Right to legally protect Federal Property doesn’t legally protect Banana Republic tactics of kidnapping peaceful protesters off the street without due process.

The pursuit of happiness for all living in America is substantially greater when we elect a president who is not a cowardly bully, draft dodger, tax cheat, running more to stay out of jail than stay in office.

By far, most of our employment challenges, healthcare crises and damage to our national peace of mind is due to Conservative Republicans who still want government small enough to drown in a bathtub, surviving only for gerrymandering census, tax collecting and making forever war to benefit Corporatism – refusing to accept that government has ever been responsible for the lives and livelihoods of the people.

Truthfully, the greatest destabilizing threat to American life continues to be our uncivil, and often camouflaged, internal war from sea to shining sea.  It is the war between Caucasian Protestant males who, well before 1776,  believed they are inherently superior in every way to all females of every color, political party, gay or straight, all Native Americans, African Americans, Latinos and Asian-Americans, – with special disdain for all who do not comply with their public sexual behavior, but rather choose sexual preferences and lifestyles, that their oppressors hypocritically practice in secret, while voting against in public.

While such flagrant profaning of, love thy neighbor as thyself, guaranteeing inequitable education, fear of diversity, hate for status quo evolving, bigotry toward inclusivity, and insufferable sexual hypocrisy is what bred Donald Trump, those who continue to support him remain our Dorian Gray portrait of what photo bombs America’s selfie.

Perhaps it’s time for America to be on, The Left Side of History, or at least for protest signs and T-Shirts to be more emphatically inclusive:  White male lives don’t matter more than any Red, Black, Brown or Yellow life.

The truth we’re looking for to understand why some will always refuse to do what’s best for, the common good, is as close as America’s southern roots in slave economic dependency transplanted into the Federal Housing Administration segregation polices housed in both Democratic and Republican foundations.

People of Color were never afforded the opportunity to bridge the distance between educational and income disparity.

2020 is a clarion call from our past, offering us a way to change our future; for what we’re allowing to happen in Portland encourages evil men in unseen dark places to elevate immoral men to leadership positions.

Even after, U.S. District Court Judge Michael Mosman gave Trump’s “Federales” the freedom to advance to Go, passing to collect their pieces of silver, GOP TV talking heads defended Trump’s taking a bridge too far, for a get out of jail free reelection.

Contrasting Trump’s Southern Strategy, Moms, Dads and Veterans are linked-in constructing a legitimate American wall of patriotic humanitarian protection, standing tall between Trump’s private police force and Americans exercising our exceptional right to petition the Government for a redress of grievances – clearly inspired by him whose hope to see his Pilot face to face, having crossed the bar, has been fulfilled.

In the midst of inadequate leadership, we must learn to lead from within a seemingly unstoppable virus, and defeat our nature, not satisfied with battering our shores, our stability and our lives, but ravenously exposing our smug arrogant belief, in false profits.

It must seem impossible in the face of such extremes, to recapture our gratitude, but doing so, we can be grateful for the wisdom to join Moms, Dads and Veterans empowered by the courage of a life well lived, and heroically emulate those who like John Lewis have crossed the blood stained bridge, one last time.
