Impeachment:  When President Trump tweets it, that means that it is Not illegal?!? – Best of TREMR & OpEdNews.com Headline

I stopped laughing at Conservative Republicans when they elected Nixon twice, didn’t celebrate Nixon’s resignation to avoid Impeachment, but now, it’s about more than a president.  It is a movement encouraging armed fear to rise again in repetition of sins against humanity.

Primed by men who are redefining America in their own image, speaking language designed to incite our violence against each other, confirms, it’s not just Trump, his limited worldview, nor the narrow mindedness of his VP, Mike Pence.

Long before our Civil War and for decades after our saving the world from Nazism and Fascism – following 1963 Dallas assassination, our Fourth Estate glued itself, and us, to repetitious myopic reporting aiding and abetting America into, a nation divided.

Enter the money changers, men like Adelson, Koch(s), Robert Mercer and our unknown unknowns, cashing in on their post WWII investment to assuage their colossally uncontrollable need to curb our freedom at all costs to us – reducing our lives to their chump change – from Dulles brothers, Joe McCarthy, Kent State, Watergate, inaugural delayed release of fifty-two American diplomats and citizens, Trickle Down, Iran Contra, Bush/Cheney, perpetual oil war(s), Kavanaugh – to a House of Ms. Stefanik, Mr. Conaway and Jim Jordan deserting their oath to the Constitution, in favor of a pledge of allegiance to the 45th president and his executive house of ill repute.

No, not just Trump, but his administration, advisers, deals, and his family; consequently, impeaching Trump will not make America what we thought America was, again – as long as lying to We the People in order to get elected, to elect personal gain, is not a high crime or at least, misdemeanor.

Those denying Trump’s divisiveness has awakened a legion of haters fueled by the fear of losing their inglorious supremacy, are the alliance chiseling away at the vital pillars of our potential for a free society secure in its faith in, justice for all.

So, Trump/Pence is hardly the first time America has been knocked down and counted out, only to rise again above the fray of mob rule, worshiping a new demagogue du jour.  Sadly, we’ve been here before, glazed over, willingly reelecting leaders who allow themselves to be rented by America’s worst systemic hackers of our Constitution:  both greed of Corporate Boards of Directors directing our branches of government through puppetry, and what was never defeated in 1865 – now released to turn off our affection for each other.

Wake up:  America is caught in the web of a political party that long ago abandoned the statutes of Abraham Lincoln, turned its back on Theodore Roosevelt’s environmental dreams, deserted both Veterans and our children’s climate future – all for a president sacrificing Ukrainians and all our allies, to preserve, protect and defend Vladimir Putin.

We need spare another generation of young Americans the over the top-heavy oppression of powerful older white men prioritizing profit over people and planet – remembering most under thirty-five don’t vote, and those who do, State Governments, not Russians, suppress the votes of College and University students.

Being both embroiled and enthralled with live coverage of Nixon-like conduct unbecoming, on steroids, let us try to see through the thinly veiled hypocrisy of trumped Republicans with the civil unity of Middle Class families, the working poor, descendants of America’s immigrant forebears, Dreamers, the fallen we memorialize every May, Veterans who need our thanks and support beyond one November day and finally – through the creative challenge of a thirty-five year-old, Francis Scott Key.

According to the New York Times, the Trump White House is a toxic stew of personality disputes, policy differences, political rivalries, ethical debates and a fundamental rift over the president himself.

Worse still perhaps:  when an Exxon CEO and a Marine four star General think the embodiment of The Peter Principal is America’s best hope, you’re in danger girl.

Might I suggest we remain vigilantly focused on the welfare of all the Trump Administration has sacrificed:

In the midst of self-serving, reelect me please, political rhetoric, most Americans retain more in common with the heroism of Marie Yovanovitch, than increasing gun violence.

Remember too, our Declaration of Independence from leaders abandoning, the consent of the governed – choosing instead to be a destructive government, We the People have the right to alter Mitch McConnell’s Republican Senate, abolish the Trump/Pence anti-American Administration and re-institute a renewed government of, by and for the people – in solidarity with:  You can’t promote principled anti-corruption action without pissing off corrupt people.

Never Forget, America’s Mission is Keeping Promises – OpEdNews.com Headline

Haven’t Americans promised to, do unto others as we hope they will do unto us, love thy neighbor as thyself, elevate tired and poor to Land of the Free opportunities, instead of duping devout, eviscerating electorate, and violating campaign finance laws?

Aren’t we here to preserve the love that trumps all evils, protect the race of all races, defend the right of life on earth to have an inhabitable planet – not abandon the less fortunate, re-enslave diversity nor shun those voting to marry whomever they love?

America’s Mission is not crystallizing collusion between Corporatism’s checks and racial imbalance, nor allowing Republican leaders to enable a, Night of Broken Glass, in our homeland.  Our Mission is not to become what is abhorrent to our founding ideals, but rather to continue the idealist journey to fulfill individual hopes, neighborly aspirations and global peace.

Are Americans Good Samaritans, or antagonists casting the downtrodden as an invading caravan advancing upon us to steal our $200m dollar presidential payoff to hush this truth:  his southern border threat, is a mirage?

Doesn’t, Home of the Brave, mean Americans symbolize the courage to transition human beings targeted by villains, from tragedy to comity?  Isn’t that, America’s Raison d’etre?

Is it American to allow fear, trolls and hackers to manufacture, then exacerbate The Great Divide?  Isn’t, Free Will the power to choose whether to descend into a new civil war or, cleansed from the ashes of Nixon’s Southern Strategy and Cheney’s twist on Trickle Down, ascend to a new dawn’s early light?

Thirty-three of our United States have elected more than 100 women and 75 Veterans.  While there were shortfalls, worthy candidates, like Heidi Heitkamp and Leslie Cockburn both reflected and illuminated:  American service that honors all in the arena – particularly nurses, teachers and women – especially all who’ve lost children to violence.

America exists as the tie that binds all to the ultimate realization of our Declaration of Independence from, Made in America tyrants – knowing our Gettysburg Address and I Have a Dream, enlist a nation now conceived as, cities, suburbs and rural households – in union.

American patriotism resists a questionable president using questionable tactics to question the legitimacy of a legally appointed Special Prosecutor, protecting Americans from those aiding and abetting America’s true adversaries.

Americans are not a welcome mat for any Bully Pulpit, nor were we born with dollar-signs in our eyes, envying a trumped family trumping common sense with the nonsense of a Trump Administration – but to forever answer the call in the eternal struggle between good and evil.

In thanksgiving, we need honor and reward First Responders and Veterans, and care for mental health caregivers, because The American Dream is more than, thoughts and prayers after mass murders – and more than confirming, what is past is prologue.

Arguably, it was not The Democratic Party that energized our 2018 Mid-Term Elections, but democratic Americans heeding the need to reconnect with our humane foundation.

  • Whether our outward uniform is military, apron or overhauls; Millennial or Senior; Laundry rooms, high heels, hardhats, power suits, or classrooms
  • Whether living the nightmare of oil shellacked beaches, pipelined reservations, life destroying forest fires or crumbling under the devastation of gun violence
  • Because some choose to deny millions affordable health-care, to reject Climate Change truth and to profit from streaming numbness to Sandy Hook, Pulse, Las Vegas and Parkland preamble to Pittsburgh Synagogue and Thousand Oaks College Country Night – 2018 voters elected our next steps forward.

We are not here to be consumed by the hellfire of an indifferent president apathetic to what trials and tragedies befall Americans from Florida to North Dakota, and Puerto Rico to California.  We are here to be the stewards of earth and the loving guardians of all life upon it.

America’s 2018 homecoming is the beginning of our new transformation:  from 11 Nov 1918 – 22 Nov 1963; from LBJ/Nixon Vietnam betrayal and Trump/Pence complicity – to a House of Representatives, filled with every American hue, gender and persuasion.

We are Americans because we care to make heaven on earth for any two or three gathering in the name of human decency – asking, seeking, knocking.

Never Forget!
