Putin, McConnell, Trump, Mass Shootings = No USA Homeland Security – OpEdNews.com Headline & TREMR Staff Pick

Long before pretend tycoons, historical Fascists excelled in, divide and conquer the populace by conveniently identifying common enemies, to distract from political coercion, power lust and financial plunder – keeping all yearning to breathe free of fear vulnerable, and doomed to, What is Past is Prologue.

The Department of Justice policy regarding indicting a sitting President, while based on time honored memos from the Office of Legal Counsel, is not the law of the land.  Indeed, our Constitution remains mute on whether a president can face criminal prosecution in court, and the U.S. Supreme Court has yet to address the issue definitively.

Just as an unratified Equal Rights Amendment cannot guarantee gender equality, believing an OLC memo is constitutional law, makes an ass out of you and me.

Inciting Violence is a Felony according to 18 U.S. Code § 373, and thus, an impeachable offense.

Laws protecting education, environment, equal opportunity and peaceful coexistence cannot be changed by a president daring the 25th Amendment to Combine his and Wayne LaPierre’s personal haul on the backs of taxpayers and membership fees – unless we the grassroots, allow such mockery to supplant rational thought.

Still addicted to NRA marketing tools:  Donald Trump and, the only thing that stops a bad man with a gun is a good man with a gun, Wayne LaPierre absconds with millions of NRA member dues, while officials defend police who murder and ignore those who sacrifice to defend.

Most nations experience video games and mental health issues, but too often in America, we wall up our mentally ill in, private prisons for profit.

It’s no longer enough to, follow the money.  We must transform our Judicial system into a competent engine recapturing ill-gotten gain and channeling it from those who profit from baiting hate with fear of losing guns, into investments insuring the welfare of Veterans, teachers and the underemployed of every race, sexual choice and philosophy – revitalizing our DOJ with our commitment to, Justice for All.

We the People have inspired the world’s growing desire for democracy.  Perhaps it’s time we take a refresher course in the courage of Puerto Rico, Hong Kong and Moscow citizens – and rise up to walk the walk of all our Rockets’ Red Glare Land of the Free, talk – realizing atop the list of endangered species Trump’s clan is willing to sacrifice on the altar of short-sightedness for profit, is the human species – assuring homeland insecurity for our children.

In 1886 France, awarded Americans the Statue of Liberty, in recognition of America as the lighthouse to safe harbor – reaffirming its promise when the Emma Lazarus poem was cast onto a bronze plaque and mounted inside Lady Liberty’s pedestal in 1903.

Thus America, given the powerful gift to see ourselves as other see us, cannot now allow Pence Conservatism, Cuccinelli homophobia, USCIS Director Francis Cissna’s Invisible Wall, Stephen Miller’s immigration bias, Epstein pedophilia enablers, Pharma’s Corporatism’s Opioid induced addictions, Trump ineptitude and our institutional systemic greed for power embedded in the Senate and embodied in Russian Rubled, Moscow Mitch – to redefine us.

There is no preserving Homeland Security, no protecting school children and no defending first-responders when McConnell’s trumped enablers avert their eyes from China’s militarizing its border with Hong Kong, Kim Jong Un’s nuclear target practice, with impunity, in the air space of American allies,  South Korea and Japan – and Russia’s attempt at creating a flying Nuclear Reactor – with Putin’s inability to do so without injecting the atmosphere with nuclear radiation.

If Social Media platforms are now accepted influencers, then we the influenced need choose carefully for whom we’re encouraged to vote, for our personal homeland security depends on trusting the diagnosis of the agenda of online posts.

Unless Americans are kept safe from people like Charles & David Koch, Mike Pence, William Barr, John Mercer, Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump, who enable the hate that insists, no room in the inn – without a good credit rating – no child will be safe, and no Homeland Security achievable.

Americans claiming America has always been the best and greatest, need actualize, to those much is given, much is expected.

The lies we tell ourselves, destabilize every family’s homeland security.

It is not mental illness that kills multiple human beings in seconds.  It’s high capacity magazines in military style rifles easily accessible to civilians killing for homeland security for white people.

Donald Trump’s piggybacked envy of despots is the fuse, fueled by desperation rattle of Senate cowards, a hypocritical VP, internationally rented Senate Majority Leader and NRA leadership extortion, but is not, high crimes and misdemeanors – until lite.

The greatest threat to our borders, peace of mind, exceptional idyllic potential, promises kept and Homeland Security is those who enable a mad president.

Our Choice: An America in the Lane for Good or the Lane for Evil – OpEdNews.com Headline & TREMR Staff Pick

Posted on Updated on

Words have the power to inspire both good and evil – whether, I Love You, increasing harmony and human decency or, the hostile venom spewed by fraudulent political leaders repeating, Migrant Invasion.

Hate has no place in our country, except, it seems, in the words of our 45th president, turned folk hero for those fearing the loss of perceived supremacy.

Those who worship those who incite violence and those who empower them to kill, make a hard right with Russian trolls, Social Media addicts and Conservative Republicans into, The Lane for Evil.

America’s parallel racial highways have been destined to crisscross again ever since the sixties intersected Jim Crow with nation bending assassinations.

Now, in an era where elected officials are more problem than solution – intimidating our Fourth Estate into hyperbole inciting a Home of the terrified empowering mass appeal domestic terrorism gun play for Caucasian survival, We the People are duty-bound to hold accountable all local, state and national lawmakers who have either forgotten, or simply ignored their duty to preserve, protect and defend the innocent against historical festering hate, explosively reawakened by the permission of averted Republican Congressional eyes and rallying racist rants reviving a Trump second term, rising on a whitewashed foundation of civilian ownership of AK-47-style rifles.

Facing the rising horror of a third of us assuming violent dominion over all others, Conservatives must join those calling Trump inspired and NRA enabled mass murders, a cesspool of hate, with discussions that glorify shooting massacres.

The longer Mitch McConnell succeeds in corralling Congressional Conservative Republicans, the more America’s shining beacon of light on a hill, will be a blaze of gunfire blinding freedom-loving people to a reelection strategy:  terrorize voters into cowering in their homes Tuesday 3 November 2020.

The Lane for Good is peopled with Americans standing in long lines to donate blood, not those who defend their bottom line by blaming mental health and video games.

Mental illness isn’t main driver of mass shootings except perhaps when:

  • Republican Senate prefers vacationing over Medical Professionals offering to help identify shooters before they snatch away family lives
  • Holding Sacrosanct a rifle association that launders foreign money to sway USA elections
  • GOP gives Acting Agency heads a pass without confirmations
  • Caging asylum seekers
  • Assuming impunity for committing murder on Fifth Ave

The Lane for Evil:

While our Media smirked, believing Trumpism an anomaly – a one-off shot across our Constitutional bow – The Lane for Evil, readies the win, lose or draw arsenal for Trump now, Trump tomorrow and Trump forever – purchases for bulletproof backpacks for kids going back to school, shoot up.

The foreign forces and domestic finances who placed Trump in power to dismantle American institutions and environmental protections have no intention of allowing what motivates their agenda to be defeated.  And with Steve Bannon’s minions returning from Ukraine training in violent overthrow – we cannot expect to vote reason into the hearts and minds of the unreasonable.

So, America’s best lane forward may be a green median path of humanity, saving lives from those who make our laws, enforce our laws and disobey our laws, knowing:  all nations face the challenges of mental illness, with or without internet connections, but few can match America’s murder record.

Second only to Corporate money, the quickest way to get politicians to, Do Something, is for all of us to act first:  peacefully, but actively demand we divorce America from Mitch McConnell’s revenge plan for our Judiciary Branch, and replace it with a legal mindset more akin to the advocacy of the Southern Poverty Law Center and Anti-Defamation League – because the reality we face now is:  there are among us Americans who will resist a peaceful transfer of presidential power.

First, we must admit Trump/Pence/McConnell did not make us – we made them.  Fortified by this wisdom, The Lane for Good empowers non-violent peaceful assembly passionately advocating for justice for all in PTA meetings, Town Halls, police precincts, engaging with First Responders, polling military to confirm, Americans in The Lane for Good, far exceed the violent lawlessness in The Lane for Evil.

Second, in 2019, those who love peace must learn to organize as effectively as those who love war, and like Puerto Rico, provide Trump/Pence/McConnell a Ricardo Rossello exit strategy.

One day the last victim will be killed in the last mass shooting, if we choose to live in The Lane for Good and Do Something.
