Michael Cohen

Impeachment – Pence – Purdue – Drunk Drivers and Father Time – TREMR Staff Pick & OpEdNews.com Headline

Posted on Updated on

Like 9/11, what we thought could never happen in America is happening again, but in 2019, administered by a pretend president and his Acting government, conniving with the foreign power determined to destroy our ability to weather Franklin’s admonishment, a Republic, if you can keep it.

Streaming Michael Cohen’s reboot channeling John Dean’s, there’s a cancer on the presidency – Impeaching for our children, we bequeath them, Mike Pence.

Few American presidents have worn sobriety as the only proof of character, while daily crashing through clearly marked humanitarian Stop Signs, putting pedal to the metal to T-Bone both America’s history and it’s potential.

Confident we won’t defeat ourselves by surrendering to the foolishness of self-inflicted vengeful violence, nor to denial of the fearfully fatigued, because Peaceful Assembly and voter registration are not weak sisters, but rather, like United We Stand, the bridge that has restored America after Revolution, Civil War, two World Wars, sixties assassinations and September 2001.

Seeing through Corporatism’s haze, the wise set aside all Trump induced chaos rattling around in the echo chamber of a Fourth Estate that has lost its way – for Media smirks, are laughing America to death.

Gun owners know Wayne Lapierre’s malleable maniacal marionette-in-chief of misinformation is, like Cheney, Pence and Putin’s Moscow Mitch, another bad man with a gun – an adversary to truth, apathetic to the human condition – profiteering off the sacred office he has careened off course.

So, answering 2020’s call, the rational rise to eject Trump Senate enablers – not with Tiki-torches, but with reasserted government of, by and for the people.  Having learned from Odessa grandmother Shauna Saxton, who faced the hateful rage of a mass murderer, but unlike her president and our Congress, took immediate action, saving her family from NRA sponsored mass hysteria – we now unite!

To unscrupulous marketing of E-Cigarettes and Opioid producers, speeders whizzing by school buses with flashing red lights, drunk drivers and people who supply civilians with military styled AR weapons – We say enough!

Witnessing the difference between investigative reporting and the laziness of talking heads repeating, a liar is a liar, we are, like time, moving on.

Recognizing the characteristic opposites of the spineless intimidating NOAA cowardice, we emulate the heroism and integrity of NWS.

Voters get it:  while a president may not be dumb enough to share classified information with foreign enemies, a pretend president could be treasonous enough to do so.

Flint knows it:  if Bush/Cheney hadn’t launched one percent of our population into perpetual war, taxpayer money might be replacing brain destroying lead laden water pipes, causing Legionnaire’s Disease and increasing Pneumonia deaths.

Patriots know it:  and reject abusing Commander-in-Chief title to divide and conquer Pentagon leadership and Congressional oversight, to profit from Air Force sleepovers at failing resorts – even if, miraculously, Religious hypocrite Pence isn’t culpable.

Visionaries know it:  and refuse to join a pretend president’s race with Climate Change, at the expense of, Homeland Security.

Now, We the People embrace national choices and individual responsibilities:  for a presidential riddle wrapped in an Acting government mystery, inside the enigma of his resort tweaked Military Industrial Complex – refusing to permit the undoing of his oath of office, by foreign policy for financial gain.

Rejecting public and private leaders, who profit from the oppression of a child’s future – whether female, people of color, LGBTQ or refugees, we ascend.

Teachers know it:  scientists are not America’s enemy, but the stewards of earth and all life upon it.  Armed once again with the conviction of, we hold these truths to be self-evident, we legally entrap impeachable producers entangled in vaporizing our future, now blowing smoke screen billions to escape their tobacco predecessors fate.

Family fun at movies, parks, concerts, schools or dog walking, have become bloodied, not just because of bad men with guns and drunk drivers, but men in corporate and government suits, too lost gathering their thirty pieces of silver, to notice their time has passed on.

Yes, we have stepped in quicksand of hate, racism, sexual discrimination and perpetual war, that challenges our best, while exposing our worst.

Allowing extreme individual focus, we fail to see family and national unity’s time limits, because many things we believed true, never were.

Filmmaker friend Kent and I rarely got to work together, so made time for lunch every three or four months, for personal catch up and filmmaking brainstorming, he with a beer, me, ice coffee.

At our last lunch, he asked to send me a play he’d written for my director’s opinion.  Then back to work, looking forward to September’s lunch.

America’s first murderer was hanged in 1630; its first drunk driver arrested 1897.

Although Conservative Republican, Texan Evangelical Christian Kent C. Williamson and, Liberal Democrat, Roman Catholic New Yorker, me, were solid friends, as with our country, the United States of America, our next lunch was never promised.

 

Are We Prepared for Who We’ll Be When Trump/Pence is done? Tremr.com Staff Pick and OpEdNews.com Headline

If we weren’t fixated on the lowest, now highly elevated – indeed lauded, unscrupulous wannabe lords and ladies, skilled primarily in the art of deception – so morally bankrupt, they swamp the Exceptionalism that could be America – we’d disavow all anti-freedom caucuses camouflaging Liberty, from sea to shining sea.

Who among us are preparing for what will be after Trump/Pence era is over?  Will we, like 116th House bleach out McConnell/Ryan’s 115th contempt of Constitution?  Or will we have been normalized into an apathetic nemesis to human decency?

In this corner, Mark Meadows, champion of trumped GOP trying to avoid insurance query knockout by challenger Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – when in truth, like us, both are co-joined pillars bookending American updates and We the People potential.

The real, Land of the Free and Home of the Brave question is, was Cohen’s Congressional confession a much-needed exceptional myth buster or our new, this is us?

Rarely, however, have even foxy hands of conservative cons, divorced from subtlety and originality, so shamed Lincoln’s GOP and damned any, light upon a hill pretense.  Truth is, Liberal conscience and Conservative shame have too often colluded with the moneyed dens of iniquity and bigotry.

So, are we the foreshadowing of wild boar herded by moneyed masters preaching to a choir for which testosterone for a mythical past, transforms both audience and performers into worshipers, salivating at a gold-plated calf of Republic destruction?  Have American Good Samaritan tendencies already been usurped by the excrement of supremacist lust for power?

Blinded by understandable patriotic fervor following their 1941 9/11, our Greatest Generation can’t be blamed for being the nuts and bolts of a profit-making war machine.  However, were Korean police action and presidential Vietnam/Iraq lies so dazzling we’re still too dazed to differentiate between Socialism and Communism, or recognize, what we elected:  state sponsored child abuse, religious VP hypocrisy and military rape – to see, it’s not just Trump Bull***t?

If loss of blood, limbs, mental health and life to war mongrels’ dollar sign eyes hasn’t yet convinced us of how easily one powerful older man – whether an industrial Robber Baron in search of glory, a Kaiser ensconcing empire, a trumped presidency warped by treason and towering greed, or Wall Street bankers for whom enough is never enough – employing repetitious lies:  the ultimate weapon of mass hysteria, discrimination and destruction – inspiring chanting clones to clamor to touch the underbelly of, where is the bottom, herded in a rage by a tyrant’s identification of the most conveniently salable enemy of the people – then we’re no more perceptive than, The Day After characters oblivious to background TV warnings of a nuclear attack.

True patriotism is the ultimate expression of, love thy neighbor as thyself – not the droppings of false-prophets deceiving the rowdy, by proclaiming, in vociferous disrespect of, Ol’ Glory, that, they alone have accomplished amazing things, better and greater than anyone ever before.

2019-2020:  it is essential that together we create our post Trump/Pence, because we’re all going to need more than a bit of marvelous to survive and thrive after wading through such a wasteland of self-deception.

So, let’s fix our Constitution, currently neither ratifying, the Equal Rights Amendment nor recognizes women as, a protected class.  And before believing the white knit on a red cap, consider this:  only in 2019, have some states managed to outlaw the practice of executing the mentally ill!  And, its estimated that 9% of prisoners on death rows in U.S. prisons are innocent.

Beware!  Time’s infinite relativity is circling around to warn us: the Trump Administration is a merciless Mercer tool – a rerun retooled for how to destroy a Republic, of, by and for the people.

Pity we needed a Reich encore to, by example, reteach us:  no matter how big the lie; repeat it often enough and the masses will regard it as truth. 

The second coming of Buzz Windrip is a forked tongue Don in search of OPM – spinning a tale that confirms, when fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.

If we cannot perceive Trump family and organization as, 1930s throwbacks, then at least consider:  aided and abetted by Russian hacks, the same mindset that annihilated millions seventy-six years ago, has successfully invaded our electoral process and minority neighborhoods – so it’s suicidal to imagine recycling, we didn’t know.

Following our assassinating sixties, it has, arguably, been the nature of Conservatives to deny, and for Liberals to nurture – and now, the attorney turned felon has, under oath, testified, “If Trump loses 2020 Election, there will Never be a Peaceful Transition of Power.”.

So, let us be about the business of saving our Democratic Republic, because, the day after America defeats, Trump/Pence, may be too late.
