Question How We Bring Home What’s Been Lost? – TREMR Staff Pick – OpEdNews.com Headline

Posted on

Who taught us to focus more on rude, crude posturing, instead of distinguishing ourselves as everyday heroes sans headlines?

What will it take to shift from problem fascination to solution focusing?

When will we divorce bewildering bellowing, marry wisdom that permeates time out, and rebirth the family value of peaceful assembly?

Where, in a, land of the free, does being a patriot award the freedom to belittle with abject name calling or the liberty to assign angry adjectives to nouns of diversity?

Why do we increasingly flock like sheep to baa at behest of blah blah of over consumerism, over-zealous zealots and over-aged politicians, pimping redundancy of wolves in sheep’s clothing as, the new world order for, the natural order of things:  keeping women in their place, children seen but not heard, LGBTQ, Muslims and Mexicans banned from real citizenship – and, the South shall rise again, for real?

How can we turn a blind eye to the consequential discrepancy between an NRA Mea Culpa projecting the fault of its internal morality hemorrhage, as victim of North aggression?

Who can overlook the hourly pretension of media hyperbole accelerating Fourth Estate demise partnering with the pomposity of a pretender-in-Chief tweeting unsubstantiated, slings and arrows of outrageous fortune?

What about, Democratic Socialists so irritates conservatives’ anti-inclusive short-sighted militia itch, and exposes anti-American, lock and load threat to Trump’s damaging horde and damaged objectives alike – both struggling for very different Americas in a racist presidential swamp – deposited in an inequitable economic bog?

Where is Trump/Pence sting, when those who so love the world, love it enough to save all life upon it?  Hate, as a Right Wing required acquired taste, is only a digestible family value in hearts manipulated into harboring it.

Why it is that the two thirds of these United States for whom, the natural order of things, has evolved – from Civil War mutating into Jim Crow Laws which emboldened Ku Klux Klan and, ultimately, a reality show invasion of all levels of American government – still settles for rerun of maniacal McCarthyism scare tactics?

How can we not now vote, no matter how tattered our elections and political parties, to resurrect from Trump ashes a Good Samaritan patriotism that is honor bound to elect champions inspired by a duty-bound electorate demanding an all-inclusive American Dream?

While banning Muslims, spreading presidential manure on less fortunate countries, restricting marriage licenses, gunning down each other in schools, workplaces and places of worship – we fail our Definite Major Purpose:  to, as stewards, preserve, protect and defend earth and all life upon it.

How then, do we Emerge from Slave Bible, Green Book and Faith Movies through FDR, JFK, MLK – to AOC, a ratified ERA and incorruptible DOJ?

Stand tall and deliver on the promises we’ve preached:  colorblind justice, individual eradication of sexual harassment, gender bias, racial bigotry and the religious hypocrisy of insulting Biblical lessons like, love thy neighbor as thyself, with the asterisk:  as long as my neighbor looks and thinks as I do.

Who remembers what America can do when we look for miracles in each other?

What contributions can’t rainbows mingling with LGBTQ, people of color and descendants of immigrants make to the American Dream?

When will we stop demanding Change, but voting for those who can’t yet fathom, there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in a Conservative Republican’s philosophy?

Where is home for a third of Americans who reject the abundant potential of an in-depth foundation of democratic miracles?

Why do we forget we didn’t have a cure for Tuberculosis, Smallpox, Polio, Mumps, Measles, Chickenpox and the Flu – until we did:  so, what’s next, Climate Injustice.

How can America find its way home through the aftermath of Trump confirming, What is Past is Prologue:  allowing our Gettysburg Address to define each of us to all of us.

To the degree, as country and individual, we discover, and digest the direct line of America’s ascending homegrown tyranny in our nation’s trajectory through Nixon’s Watergate, Reagan’s Trickle Down, Bush/Cheney’s Great Recession, we will understand how we were bathed in the racism, sexism, religious hypocrisy and white supremacist prep for Trump/Pence.

When, if not Tuesday 3 November 2020, will we progress from our sea to shining sea troubles, and by opposing Barr/Stephen Moore/Mnuchin/McConnell/Pence/Trump vainglory mirage, end their reigning weight on our backs?

The freeing truth that hurts most is, ignorance is not bliss, denial is the Opioid of cowards and change is terrifying – but progressing forward anyway, is the courage of unsung heroes – for without the valiant, humanity and its planetary home are doomed.

So now, let us invite the wisdom that comes from investigation, making We the People, affirmation, to never again tolerate what we ourselves have wrought.

After Mueller Barred – What’s Next America? – OpEdNews.com Headline & Tremr Staff Pick

Posted on Updated on

It’s not the devastating disastrous challenges with which the webs of conservative government wallowing in demagogic visions of billionaire boards, nor Global Climate Change denials that entangle us – it’s the art of how we deal.

Our best, what’s next, is making reparations for the meaningful we’ve stolen from others – especially during our Trump/Pence error – with affordable healthcare including preexisting conditions, electing descendants of former slaves to positions of power and saving all children and students from ICE, unbearable student loan debt and Betsy DeVos.

Next, cease following The Right in the wrong direction; desist obsessing over our mythically enhanced past; ellipse debris of our serial Gates, Trickle-Down deceit and Bushwhacked, Mistakes were Made – and walk the walk, we’ve incessantly talked.

What’s next?  Patience for under-informed family and friends; turn off media conjecture turned hyped gossip; tune out Madison Ave marketing whitewashing thinking – resist billion-dollar wall pieces and Billionaire CEOs, with an out of this world plan to escape earth’s climate challenges.

Reason is the saving infrastructure sparing America fragmentation by mob rule choruses wailing No Collusion cover-up chants.  With or without the trumped, We the People must lead by the constitutional example of peaceful assembly – transforming, petition the Government for a redress of grievances, into being elected to all levels of it.

As people, nation and earth’s inhabitants, our ultimate power is Free Will steeped in, Freedom of Choice – brimming with the Exceptionalism of Self-Determination.

Remembering, Nixon was reelected in a landslide even after Watergate was headlined news, let us individually self-examine, why:  if, a combo of The Right conservatives indifferent to criminal politicians vs. an extremely Liberal candidate on The Left – then decline a rerun of, what is past is prologue.

If we must test, Divided We Fall, let’s plant Ol’ Glory in a watershed opposing Pence religious hypocrisy zealots, McConnell’s secretly banker rented cronies and the Impeachment cravings of an energized Left Wing perhaps too pragmatically deficient, to see the core of immorality is conservatives losing sight of it.

The lies we continue to tell ourselves about Sandy Hook, NRA comrades enabling Las Vegas, Orlando’s Pulse and Parkland murders while ignoring Trump’s ICE cold kidnapping of our morality, by imprisoning and trafficking children, demands our, what’s next, must confront our Peter Principal reality show personality’s Base, despite understanding finally, no matter the cause, reasonable people do not possess infallible powers to reason with people who choose to be unreasonably committed to unscrupulous men without reason.

What’s Next then:  All-inclusive Liberalism recapturing and intellectually nurturing America’s FDR/JFK center.

Current Republican Party Conservatives, as Barbara Bush discovered but failed to internalize, are reminder and reflection that, America was never a united country speaking in one voice, nor Americans all for one and one for all – notwithstanding the brief shining moments of civilian and military leadership during our Revolution, World War II and Cuban Missile Crisis – when such courage and humanity preserved, protected and defended both America and humankind.

What’s next, courageously honor America’s Herstory, acknowledge contributions of LGBTQ, people of color and immigrants knowing the real lessons rooted in perpetual wars are, the breeding grounds for Wall Street greed and GOP deceit.

America’s best defense is not offensive inhumane government, in the pocket of bankers banking on Recession returns.  It is in choosing to peacefully lead by examples of the Golden Rule, even if 35% of us, choose to pretend, foreigners seeking asylum at our southern borders are greater threats to America’s greatness than those hacking our elections.

Even when a president surrounds himself, and by extension us, with felonious cohorts and moneyed Republican puppeteers of the trumped, are breathtakingly motivated for a Mars relocation – division conquers only when both sides contribute to its derision.

Claiming to love God and Country, while disdaining climate science, diminishing affordable healthcare and neglecting gender & racial equality and livable income parity, is anti-Christian, anti-American and anti-earth’s stewardship.

After Leon Jaworski v. Richard Nixon, our judicial system decided it is the legal responsibility of Congress, not an Attorney General, to determine how a special prosecutor’s discovery is to be applied during and after 1600 Pennsylvania Ave occupation expires.

Mueller wrote, “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

Now, what’s next:  We the People demanding our government’s Office of Legal Counsel follow Trump’s suggestion to investigate, the other side:  why Trump was exonerated by his handpicked AG and why conservatives continue denying life on earth its last chance:  an American Green New Deal.

The challenge of all-inclusive government is the Democratic gauntlet at the feet of McConnell’s trumped GOP, and what’s next is not premature victory laps with vengeful intent, but like a Mueller Grand Jury, an accountability mirror reflecting America, continuing robustly.
