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.
For trumped Upper Financial Echelon: We the People, are Expendable – Tremr Staff Pick & OpEdNews.com Headline
Exposure of a non-secured Kushner-Trump-Pence regime sorely lacking necessary acumen for national security and empathetic humanity (Roger Stone that) is not the only teachable moment, amidst a contrived American hostage situation.
Momentarily discharged from latest extreme Right-Wing schooling, and still understandably stunned by a hallucinatory president, can we please affirm, the last thing America needs is another billionaire with no government experience, claiming he’s the cream in our coffee.
The gold standard silver lining of Trump’s shutdown of reason is, we now know, almost a million young and senior genders, of every race, color, heritage and political and sexual persuasions, were joined together in food-lines, depending on the kindness of strangers – and, provided we cure our short-term memory loss, once the cash flow returns, we just might start talking, and doing something about America’s caste system.
For starters, let’s re-gift this cold water in our face, to myopic news media, with a resounding reunification proclamation: deliver factual news awareness that razes to the ground all walls inciting self-fulfilling prophesies. Thus, armed with information, not hyped conjectured opinion, we can progress beyond trumped up malicious manifested malignancy.
We, the expendable, matured now by the knowledge that the American Dream is not limited to the nightmare of a self-serving Trump organization but remains the invitation to our future to undo the horrors of our past: a nation lacking any semblance of income parity between male and female, nurses & doctors, teachers & sports players – is no, Land of the Free.
Democrats, if we’re different from Republicans, admit America’s walls existed long before Donald Trump accidentally fell into the lap of concrete underbelly thinking, and advance our global, glacial, climate and mental health economic thinking to actionable awareness.
United Democrats can best help all Americans see beyond the Trump/Pence era, to not only stop drinking leftover Trickle-Down Kool-Aid, but to educate all, that Americans living paycheck to paycheck know more about budgets, income, taxes and economic recovery than those responsible for the Bush/Cheney Recession and Trump/Pence/Mnuchin deficits.
The ultimate lesson at the heart of our longest government shutdown is: too much wealth collected in State Houses and Congress by Wall Street rentals, has blinded power seekers to the fact that, we are neither chattel nor pawns – when not easily distracted by the glitz of the greedy protecting their need for our over consumerism.
We are more than the soulless who crave a craven White House, and those genuflecting to a pro-Putin president. We are what survives and thrives after the last hurrah of rogue regimes.
It’s less about MAGA capped kids and more about how we’re still abandoning our original Americans to poverty. It’s about demeaning cabinet positions, and a Commerce Secretary who hasn’t a clue about America’s daily bread.
Nonetheless, because of Trump’s shutdown, we now must face that to America’s peril, hundreds of thousands of over-worked Americans with too little savings and too few benefits, are only two paychecks away from potential homelessness.
We’ve all made mistakes when jumping to simplistic conclusions over superficial first impressions but falling for a candidate allied with a foreign power indulges in the worst lie of all: the lie we tell ourselves about being superior to any life-form on earth.
Yes, our Founding Fathers, expected Exceptionalism would free people of their land-owning class, gender and race to self-govern, with the proviso of an Electoral College to prevent mob rule – but America’s Founding Fathers couldn’t have imagined a Russian hack in the White House.
However, in 2019-2020, national maturity suggests we cease and desist ceding permission for any screen size to spy on, or shape our opinions and self-perceptions around, our least common denominator.
156 years after our Declaration of Independence evolved into Lincoln’s, more perfect union, we’re beckoned to, passionately live a life of excellence focusing our energetic endeavors on what’s next and new, because indeed, we are better than our current GOP debacle.
Even during holiday celebrations, when my Grandmamma spoke, raucous yielded the room to the wisdom found in listening silently. I’ve often seen her in the inner glow and intense stare of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Speaker Nancy Pelosi – but media hyperbole is wrong! There are no winners, and no victory for America until we stop allowing arrogance to suck our sustenance and humanity off the exceptional rainbow lite path, forward.
Our recent past, and possible encore of a Trump induced national endurance test, chasing phantom southern border threats has gifted us this knowledge: it is not the first time we’ve been designated, expendable by the moneyed powerful – but now we know, America’s greatness, like patriotism, is an honest overture constantly welcoming different points-of-view, while heroically walking in the skin of diversity’s justice for all.
