Shameful Survival Strategy: Short-Sightedness Surging Self-Destruction – OpEdNews.com Headline

Posted on

Severe self-serving sins projected on citizenry seeking missing refugees who sought only solace, by soliciting to slip away from State sponsored slaughter – sharply switched into shipped scared skirmishing siblings screaming for snuggles – separated by ICE shielded sentinels strayed from sanity – stranding suckling squirts supplicating for succor, succumbing to superficial slumber in strangling State system.

Suspended by salacious supporters of segregation, seeing no Samaritan’s Socialism in sight, souls settle for a smidgeon of scraps, while succeeding selfishness spews from shameless speakers successful at solicitating the unschooled to serve society’s scoundrels in scheme to shift from serene speech, to scatological simplicity of supererogation.

Sadly, sucker-punching sublime story-telling seers, is striking out on scoring scoop:  middle finger salutes signal strings to spurious schooling, not superiority.

Still sustaining shallow scandalous sessions, with Sessions stoking and stroking shared sanctuary of sweeping squires with sinister secrets – Eden’s serpent savors survival, slandering supreme settled law.

Slim is the service of self-serving special interests, shunning soul searching, surrendering us to swamps speeding slavery to substandard selections, smearing our presidential seal with stupidity.

Scurrying for support, surrogate’s set-up stories, sacrifice sanity’s savvy on a scorned specious speedway surfaced by sneaks stealing solutions for our studiously salvaging solidarity from synthesis of silly stand-ins.

Spotting our susceptibility to self-centered simpletons – hacking serpents and political snakes – swiftly shake off sharing super lies swindling seniors and swinging sincere sophomores into suicidal strife.

Straightaway, sternly sling suspicious scrutinizing of society this season and sympathetically seize non-voters with the sufficiency to show up, to speak-out against slippery slope of separateness, for sharpened sticks are not soldiers-at-arms but savage stucco stupor – salient sauce for sham shepherds.

In this short-lived stage of spineless substitutes spontaneously submissive to staunchly slipshod behavior, shoddy information spat from supporting-roles serving shifty swain, as suddenly steeled Supers speechifying for subversive skippers; serious singular stomping grounds spare scholarship, sloppy seconds in the name of, We the People:

  • After FDR’s 12 April 1945 death, America’s wealthiest Military Industrial Complex warfare class implemented first fifty-year plan to control every American’s choices, social status, income and willingness to wage war to enrich them
  • 170,000 American military personnel occupy 150 countries
  • Jeff Sessions advertises Guantanamo still open; no trial necessary
  • Americans in harm’s way for nearly seventeen years in Afghanistan
  • Donald Rumsfeld’s knowns and unknowns
  • Using 9/11 as excuse for unlawful activity, Bush/Cheney order Alberto Gonzales and Andrew Card to John Ashcroft’s hospital room to intimidate deputy Attorney General James Comey into secretly reauthorizing Domestic Surveillance

August 11-12, 2017 America’s new domestic tribalism proved itself as dangerous as any international terrorism fueled by our war mongering ultra-moneyed.

Any corrupted administration easily colludes with power – so, have asylum seeking parents forever lost families because Trump’s America is trafficking  brown refugee children?

Power is not made in the image of a president for whom a quick read of Proverbs’ sixth chapter, would expose as the very nemesis of all things divine.

However, refraining from judging others is all-powerful:

  • Not all Evangelical Christians, are old, overweight Caucasians
  • Not all: hypocritical conservatives deserting Ecclesiastes
  • Not all: radical, love it or leave it zealots blind to Separation of Church and State
  • Not all: NRA brainwashed with Open Carry
  • Not all: single-issue voters
  • And because most Evangelicals are Jesus Christians, not trumped Christians, not all Evangelicals vote for a trumped GOP

America’s super power resides in our connectivity with and emulation of all-inclusive community.

Many “S” words spell Donald Trump, but his debacle will slither to silence for both supporters and detractors if we don’t sink into the savage peace.

To the degree we resurrect, recommit and renovate, all men are created equal, our lives will prove honor and courage live in the gender and racial equality of 12 Strong, Separation of Church and State, our Free Press and right of, peaceably to assemble.

Then, like Eleanor Roosevelt, Lincoln, Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, Women’s Marches and Rachel Maddow – we will enlighten current and future Supreme Court Justices, Congressional members and presidents, by ballots cast – of our joint obligation to preserve, protect and defend the United States of America with Justice for All.

Now, heal our nation’s self-inflicted wounds.


The Children’s Hour – A Showdown with Trump: Headlined on OpEdNews.com

Posted on

For her six to ten-year-old years, I got to be her father.  For four minutes I got some inkling of what it must feel like, for a parent to lose a child – whether to kidnapping, over-heated car, swimming pool, school shooting or some disease or addiction, because corporate profits are prioritized over children’s lives.

Then her eight-year-old hand slipped into mine, and I could breathe again; not so for parents victimized by a self-righteous Attorney General trying to impress his callous bully boss.

All too often, God Wills It is the mantra of those obsessed with the need to oppress.  Countless tyrants have excused their tyranny with some form of, God Made Me Do It.  Indeed, too many honorable and courageous young Americans, faithful to the guidance of our Better Angels, have been used as cannon fodder, by too many self-aggrandizing autocrats, but Trump’s Sessions staining Romans 13 with his heretical history of bigotry cannot stand!

Long before 1/20/17, of, by and for the people was programmed with the propaganda of incomplete history — which by prejudicial omission, has betrayed our freedom of choice to chronicle, endorse and benefit fully from the comprehensive societal contribution of enlightened diversity.

Denying international reality and disavowing America’s exceptional promises, has finally transformed our American Dream into a national nightmare.

It’s not just about what arrived in our New York Harbor 17 June 1885, as much as it is the families enticed by its Land of the Free promises, freely offering their bloodlines to our Home of the Brave.

America’s dream is reignited every time we define ourselves by honoring all fathers and mothers as we expect all children to be honored.  We cannot, however, justify claiming, real Americans are those who came ashore after Native Americans, bringing enslaved African-Americans, and claim also, we aren’t immigrant or refugee byproducts, because, We Built That.

In 242 years of war and peace, America’s inhabitants often rebranded America.  Arguably, except for April 12, 1861 – May 13, 1865, we’re now immersed in our greatest identity crises – challenging for many, but threatening for the few prospering from manipulating the fears of those more vulnerable to misinformation’s hyperbole – especially difficult perhaps, for descendants of a cultural majority whose base is rooted in a free labor foundation of human blood, sweat and tears – all the more distressed when denying an infrastructure of descendancy from, huddled masses yearning to breathe free.

Is America’s greatness a financial & political might is right, or being the tide that lifts all boats; Trump’s ICE pick ripping children from the arms of loving fathers and mothers, or recapturing our Exceptionalism from domestic terrorism and foreign hackers?

Perhaps if we were a connecting dots guru, we’d recognize @theLPP2017 #BlackLivesMatter #WomensMarch #MeToo #TimesUp #NeverAgain and #MarchForOurLives as 21st century links to Jewish, Italian and Greek families defining Ellis Island as, escaping war, famine and religious persecution – then recognize Matthew Shepherd’s murder in The Pulse, debtors prison in mass incarceration – and eradicate gender inequality by ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment — permitting, This land is Your Land, This Land is My Land, justice for all.

Faith and patriotism without empathic humanity is void of morality:

  • Ignoring the plight of the less prosperous
  • Profaning Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself by devaluing fellow human beings
  • Claiming love of God & Country without, suffer little children to come unto me, forbidding them not

Neither hypocrite nor Good Samaritan is promised another moment, so choose wisely:  help fathers working three jobs, mothers weeping for their lost children and children who love children who look nothing like them.

Each inhalation we take to speak love or ill, defines us to a universe noting our measure:

  • most of We the People, shine brighter in the heavens than any family staying together to steal together
  • each victory over institutionalized lead poisoning or kidnapping innocent children for lack of paperwork, keeps America great
  • We can be clones of a Congress aiding and abetting Pharma industry and its distributors profiting off Opioid deaths

Or, hearing refugees seeking asylum crying out from the wilderness, we can embrace and honor America’s immigrant heritage, and make this children’s hour, Our Finest Hour.
