“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.

Donald Trump is “the Greatest Hoax Ever Perpetrated on Americans” – TREMR Staff Pick & OpEdNews.com Headline

Posted on Updated on

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:

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.
