America: From Charlottesville to Trump’s ‘Go Back Where You Came From’ TREMR Staff Pick & OpEdNews.com Headline
Our bankrupting Brander-in-Chief is a weapon of mass destruction, sparing few cherished American institutions. So, isn’t it time we refrain from identifying his behavior as merely distractions from his mounting Russian/Assange Wikileaks political and legal problems – and stop allowing him to lead us by the nose in his game of ring-around-the-Rose Garden, as he does our media?
Yes, our nation’s chief bully specimen is feeling challenged by people he feels are only for groping, but if you think Donald Trump is defeated, please revisit his proud confession: When someone attacks me, I always attack back…except 100x more, because this is Trump’s way of life. Thus, our old pro chess playing Speaker wisely chooses the tortoise over the hare, knowing it’s better to elect a Democratic Senate for indictment and potential jail time, than settle for an Impeachment slap on the wrist.
Trump continues to prove, like any cornered animal, he will not go gentle into that good Tuesday 3 November 2020 night, for he has cast his lot with, fine people on both sides, go back where you came from and perhaps most telling of all – it doesn’t concern me because I know many people agree with me.
Indeed, our sane and rational thoughts for America post Trump/Pence must prepare now for those all across our country salivating over photos of unarmed people of color shot in city streets or asylum seekers caged in American detention centers – for both they and GOP have been trumped by the stench of, Make America White Again.
Donald Trump’s need to be praised eliminates any ability to keep a secret, be it Russians or ICE raids or, his real intention that goes far beyond mere distraction: The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four “progressives,” but now they are forced to embrace them. That means they are endorsing Socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats!
Tag, we’re it!
Dueling tweets, however, fixate us on the problem: one whose ability will never rise beyond the simplicity of a short attention span. Those who are not among the 54% seeking, Sweeping Change that sets us free from corporate gouging, governance by fear of losing supremacy – and the domestic terrorism of a president equating disagreement with him, to treason – fuel the coming storm.
Our fate yields to our choice: the narrow path of reason to unity or the broad road of chaos to destruction. Worshiping at the tower of deceit, racism and inhumanity guarantees freedom’s demise. To recapture our balance, wisdom beckons us to be a nation of people who dispel denial, eradicate ignorance and make the wind and the sea obey our energized Johnny-come-lately attempts at climate justice.
A memo from a GOP strategist to Trump Administration concluded Census citizenship question would disadvantage Democrats. This is the character of a Twitter-in-Chief colluding with social media stormtroopers fond of conspiracy theories, hailing the Southern Cross, wearing ammunition belts in public parks and murdering peaceful opposition.
Meanwhile blotched by the yellow streak of rented Conservatism, honorable humanitarian investors with $34 trillion demand urgent climate change action, but USDA exiles Climate scientists to Koch Bros’ Kansas.
The point is, we have ensconced Trump into our social diet: a secret Border Patrol Facebook Group where Agents joke about Migrant Deaths and post sexist Memes. Now we need a cleanse: resisting not just DT, but the delirium he resurrected in America. Unlike Trump and company, we must persist with the dignity, intelligence and honesty he lacks, for in all probability, Trump had no idea that the Congresswomen he attacked, are, arguably, more American than two of his three wives.
And therein festers our exceptional problem: Trump’s GOP is the visible infection come to a head atop our historical foundation of, America’s molasses to rum to slaves triangular trade, economic security stabilized on the backs of Antebellum enslaved families, 1919’s All-American Red Summer and the crooked white line from the White House of Tallahassee’s Dozier School For Boys to that, the trumped elected, for a more imperfect union in 2016.
Fifty-seven years ago, President Kennedy both proclaimed our going to the Moon and, to Khrushchev missiles in Cuba, this far but no farther.
Fifty years ago, Americans landed on the Moon, yet twenty years ago John F. Kennedy Jr died in a plane crash just minutes away from his earthly destination.
If we stop resisting the real enemies of a colorful American Dream, America will die. If we don’t start resisting Climate Change, the world will also.
Yet, know this: Only Love Remains – so anything we do that mirrors the hypocrisy of Mike Pence, the tactics of Mitch McConnell or the racism of Donald Trump, defeats everything America was created to be.
Donald Trump is “the Greatest Hoax Ever Perpetrated on Americans” – TREMR Staff Pick & OpEdNews.com Headline
As William Barr mounts his already shame stained DOJ throne to squat on the rear receptacle crusted over with Trump’s executive order to defy all Congressional subpoenas, his stream of spying spin, from Russia with Love through a media too lazy to look beyond surface excrement, adds another slick of jaundice to our current seat of government.
By comparison, our 2000 coup d’état aided by the U.S. Supreme Court, and abetted by Reagan’s ultra conservative appointee, Justice Antonin Scalia – preemptively striking out Florida’s Supreme Court, was more blunt force trauma than takeover by Trump/Pence/Bolton/Mnuchin/Pompeo/McConnell – by a thousand cuts.
Domestic spies heavy laden with Koch and Deutsche Bank dirty laundry, coming in from the cold to warm their feet on ever increasing GOP, boil, boil toil and trouble for, of, by and for the people government – the Trump syndicate flips an AG middle finger not just at one co-equal branch but to the entire Land of the Free tree, including Founding roots.
Perhaps another reason to un-elect Donald Trump in 2020, is to be able to walk along 5th Ave without fear of being shot by a President of the United States – or at least, deny absolution to Trump’s Global and pre-pardons to go – as Conservatives amass attack from the female Right flank, in state legislatures’ push to pit lower courts against what they expect in a Kavanaugh v. RBG SCOTUS.
Imagine being both poor and female, whether paleface or tanned out of history: post tax cuts for super wealthy, twisting poverty standards to adjust for fewer Americans qualifying for Food Stamps.
The Non-exonerated investigated excommunicating justice from the Department of Justice, now investigating how his private foreign parts got probed without facilitating any hired urinating sources.
Trusting Pharmaceutical Opioid pushers and health insurance ravens is as dangerous as believing in peddlers of fear herding us into desperation that settles for any ol’ unqualified leaders. As a result, we’re being Saturday Night Massacred, again.
While many well-meaning parents remain whirling under the pressure of those who teach fear of vaccinations, fear of affirmative action and fear of true patriotism: the courage of, first do no harm – even when thinking for oneself, remember America’s greatness has always come from collectively caring for the common good.
Repetitive Republican talking points have made an unquenchable cliché of, I’m not a scientist, so when Science Guy Bill Nye goes ballistic on those who refuse to hear the truth about what they see, is it any wonder that logic is sacrificed on the altar of needing a stimulated political Base?
Smarter to, full stop conservatives trying to pry out of our grasp on reason, the birth of a new onslaught on women’s Constitutional rights – eager to clone Alabama, Georgia and Ohio reverberation of eleven Republican dominated legislatures, with their MAGA on, for another round of: the Trail of Tears, Slavery, police beaten Suffragettes, McCarthyism and Jim Crow.
To the peril of America’s humanity, we’ve Right-Winged patriotism, deserted the less fortunate, scorned human kindness, whitewashed dishonesty and betrayed our Constitution so much – finding our way out of the quicksand of a trumped GOP bog seems as insurmountable as defeating a raving, self-aggrandizing, narcissistic, maniacal demagogue, whose practiced charisma incited in an otherwise sane and industrious people, the willingness to allow the slaughter of more than six million human beings.
Nonetheless, despite this incredibly unimaginable horror, human decency overcame, and devastated families prevailed.
Collective self-delusion emboldens lawless executive action, whether emanating from Wall Street boardrooms, bankers banking on bank induced recessions or a foreign agent occupying the White House.
Change for the better never follows voting against the best interests of union members, small businesses or farmers oppressed by the side effects of violent white supremacists and executive privilege’s trade wars against patriotic voters in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin.
It’s not the color Tim Russert emulators paint our States, but the lacquer with which we ourselves stain our souls.
It’s descendants of lynch mobs – Alt-Rightness wrongly hijacking, do the Right Thing – and the vulnerable to quick and easy fixes of false prophets without a plan.
It’s falling for the showmen of over-simplification spouting lies camouflaged by promises of coal reruns and manufacturing returns – only to recycle Blue-Collar workers, and women, to their 1898 place.
It’s failing to internalize these self-evident truths:
- You’re not Pro-Life unless from womb to tomb committed
- An extremist president won’t combat his on-line extremism allies
- For Trump, the presidential oath of office does not include preserving, protecting or defending the Constitutional rights of LGBTQ Americans
As conservative Republicans trumpet refueled War on Women, reason responds: Lady Justice, blindfolded and not, our Statue of Freedom atop DC’s Capitol Building and our Statue of Liberty — are all women.
