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.

USA Denial: Gun Violence, Climate Change & Life-saving Medical Treatment – TREMR Staff Pick & OpEdNews.com Headline

Until we stop yielding rational thinking to Corporatism’s mental programming, dismantling government to expedite nation collapsing, we will continually allow the few who choose to be blind, to diminish the vision of those who in their hearts know:  America’s future recedes each time we elect puppets of people whose post New Deal plan is to never bestow power in a government willing to lift Corporatism’s Middle Class customers, working poor surfs and discarded masses yearning to breathe free of food stamps, lead water pipes, and homelessness.

Notwithstanding twenty children and six adults gunned down in a pre-Christmas mass shooting, ignoring never again, El Paso, Dayton and Odessa, Texas lawmakers have now made it easier to increase our numbers:  more than 2,300 people have been killed and almost 8,400 have been wounded, in mass shootings and since 20 January 2017, more than eighty-three people have been killed and 512 wounded in America’s AR-15 addiction.

There is no America the Beautiful in a Senate Majority leader who denies any attempt for our Senate to vote on any of the reasonable gun violence prevention laws, passed by the House.

No sense of a, Land of the Free, when fearing to be in public;

No justice for, one person one vote, when betrayed by Conservative citizens responsible for the integrity of their States’ voting machines;

No government of, by and for the people, when electing party over country;

No Homeland Security, when living in a country without a real president; in a time of daily distribution of repetitious nonsense from a reality show host pretending to be president, atop an acting administration with a supporting cast scripted by misinformation – all aided and abetted by a corporate clan’s excrement on Edward R. Murrow example.

Unless we believe the globe’s greatest manipulators of mega wealth and governments, are as short-sighted as a VP hiding in the wings, a Senate Majority Leader liberally stacking our judicial system with Reactionary Conservatives and the glitter gathering Trump family trusting, they can take it all with them – care about us, perhaps we should give some thought regarding what market manipulators of political parties, plan for the rest of us, as they shore up their offshore stash, investing millions in deserting earth for Mars, in a technological age where robots can fulfill most human activities.

Most living in America are doing the best they can to keep up, stay ahead and save each other from, Grim Reaper Conservatism, but being raised to believe real men don’t ask for help – hearts, minds and hands full of NRA faux constitutional love – some succumb to the mental illness of easier accessibility to inflict, An American Tragedy, camouflaged in religion and patriotism.

Liberal ideals were the foundation of America’s, we hold these truths, and historically, Liberals have repeatedly restored our economy, Middle Class, Homeland Security and Justice for All, after Conservatives endangered them:

  • Hoover Depression to FDR’s New Deal
  • Eisenhower’s Cold War to JFK’s New Frontier
  • Reagan’s Trickle Down to Clinton’s surplus
  • Bush/Cheney Great Recession to Obama’s Economic Recovery

Now, GOP Trump bleeds American life with Trade Wars, Tariffs and ignoring, The Guns of August, his neglect, incompetence and laundered money potentially paints America’s oil slicked economy, blood red.

Yet, Trump/Pence didn’t create the GOP.  It created them.

Even before the Democratic Party produced Abigail Spanberger, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, who wisely assessed, If the Environment were a Bank, it would have been saved already – it was championed by Eleanor Roosevelt whose contributions to gender and racial equality became the torch that lit America’s path forward, and nominated our first woman ever, for the presidency of the United States.

Yet, we still follow those fighting the last war, building neighborhoods for pre-Climate Change reality and enabling Conservative Republican puppets of the NRA to drown America in its own movie goers’, shoppers’ and children’s blood.

Where will we stand at last, after Brits reject their Brexit Trump, Putin’s full-filled hopes for Americans never tiring of shooting each other and a world fearing we might fail to eject our Russian made Court Jester?

What will America be after Americans ignore the increasing numbers of farmers, cyber bullied teens and Opioid suicides?

How can a, Home of the Brave, not consider the blinding and deafening maze of Trump media coverage, cover for Conservatives placing a higher value on Big Pharma, NRA and the Trump Organization, than American lives?

Can America be The Land of the Free if Americans don’t stand between the evil of Trump’s 33 Day Deportation Notice to Death and its targets for extinction?

With coffee chats in bookstores, libraries and walking dogs, often strangers reawaken civility, heal cell addiction and rejuvenate curiosity for more inclusive connection.
