Trump’s Tattered Brand Thrives By Focusing Our Ridicule — Headlined on OpEdNews.com

Posted on Updated on

The Trump/Pence Administration is, in all probability, the worst rupture in our American Dream of being a giving culture of global Good Samaritans, since 9/11/2001, but this trampling mixture causing both political abhorrence and stimulus could have never descended upon us, without the preferences of moneyed Conservatives, Corporate induced Recession and write-ins for people who had no electable possibility.

Empowered by 2016 elections emanated from voters deciding, slapping Democratic Party wrists would bring recognition without diminishing protective agencies, SCOTUS or our voting privileges — encouraging Jeff Sessions to douse the torch of Lady Liberty, re-dip our international standing in anarchy and tip racial and gender imbalance, further in decline – all while Democrats continue to believe this is just about Donald Trump.

It’s not.  It’s Mitch McConnell & his line of succession:  confirmed judges.  It’s Paul Ryan, escaping responsibility for the GOP Freedom Caucus.

It’s a religious fanatic and sexual bigot one cholesterol heartbeat away VP, hiding in plain sight, aiding and abetting the undoing of American progress, waiting to fly in on the wings of Pompeo & Pruitt, to wipe his feet on equality and justice for women, LGBTQ, and all not made in his image.

It’s the nightmares of every low information and non-voter providing infrastructure for Millennials to blame Baby-Boomers.

It’s the NRA member driving from Indiana to Texas, with a carload of T-Shirts that contradict Chief Justice Warren Burger’s supreme interpretation of our Second Amendment – as inspired Founding Fathers’ Bill of Rights inclusion, to guarantee well-regulated gun use — not daring to incorrectly define Liberty, as the right to bear unregulated arms.

It’s voting like our lives depended on it, embracing the clarity of millions around the world, in solidarity with #2017WomensMarch, #MeToo, #TimesUp and #NeverAgain Parkland students.

It’s about caring passionately enough to be respectfully involved with all life on earth, or at least partnering with Western Industrial Societies seeking balance between, being fed up with elections that yield too little change, and becoming stronger activists advocating for income parity, gender equality, racial justice and recapturing our exceptional essence.

It’s about being a positive global example; not white-washing our crimes against humanity:  Slavery, Civil War prisons, Japanese-American internment camps, Jim Crow, Lynching, Nixon’s Kent State, and 21st century Red Mapping of the United in our American dreams for all born here before Columbus, and all immigrants invited after, who ultimately generated, The Greatest Generation.

Let’s exhale greatness that emits more than campaign slogans for Demagogue worshipers, because to reelect, The Land of the Free, we need be, in our institutions, mirrors and choices, an exceptional Home of the Brave — whose every action enables justice to triumph over repetitious ICE picks thrust into our humanity.

Greatness is what nations and cultures whisper we’ve earned, when no one is watching.

Greatness honors what Corporatism’s Conservative puppeteers dishonor – casting doctors, lawyers, scientists and football players as more deserving of financial and professional respect than the teachers who taught them.

Greatness, like Exceptionalism, is forever challenging those to whom we award our vote, to prove themselves worthy of it.

There is no greatness in denial:

  • Alzheimer’s until caregiving costs rivet our attention
  • Climate Change until Miami’s under water
  • Unsafe food until recalls quadruple
  • Addictions to Coal Ash Candidates, Opioids and bullying
  • More Flints enabling privatization of water to assuage Corporatism’s gluttony for gauging

Remembering, Nixon’s landslide re-election after Pentagon Papers and Watergate, best we focus on provable impeachable offenses — but gently, without incentivizing adoring trumpets.

Being unempathetically ambiguous about Constitutional truth is no excuse for unpresidential material projecting himself, above Constitutional law.

Being more focused on Trump’s monthly porn payment plan, blinds us to, of, by and for the people Iran Deal.

America was not created by voting to die younger, passing on college education to avoid padding banker’s pockets or, believing the greatest secret of an ego surviving on fast food, Fox News and laundered money, is a videoed urinating contest.

Reason beckons the genius of Civics, psychology of Recess and patriotism of http://www.peopledemandingaction.org, http://www.studentprivacy.org, http://www.auditelectionsusa.org/team/, NAACP, ACLU and Women-Matter.org, in peaceful assembly.

Greatness is thriving together — America First, is a house divided, on steroids.

It’s Not About Trump – It’s About USa!

Posted on

Despite Trump’s disdainful U-Turn toward 1860, since 1960, albeit with the inconsistency of a pendulum lost to the possibility of being centered – we’ve crawled wounded by assassinations, then walked on the moon, now encoring our, one brief shining moment, we support more progressive Americans in doing our best to be our brightest in replacing malice toward anyone in The Land of the Free, with charity, justice and equality for all.

Our Statue of Liberty torch is once again passed to a new generation of Americans, reborn out of a Great Recession induced by the enablers of, Donald Trump and family.

However, it’s much too soon to be drowned, surfing 2018 expectations of Blue Waves.  Thanks to the creators of Trump, not trusting corporate owned media polls predicting landslide victories and taking voters for granted is a 2016 lesson learned – remembering, Nixon’s landslide re-election during the 1972 Watergate investigation.

With Trump support, splintered grassroot energy is blossoming into the wisdom of our feminine side, but non-voters beware, elections are no more a spectator’s sport, than keeping our Democratic Republic from slipping through Twitter thumbs and Youtube videos.

Surprised faces, on Trump and Pence, at the end of hacked campaign days, Tuesday 8 November 2016, shocked our overdue gender equality into rippling muscular brain power, ready, willing and able to weigh the anchored weight of Conservatism’s self-serving philosophic quagmire of old males like, Orrin Hatch, Chuck Grassley and Mitch McConnell.  Our Mission?  Expedite exit of such as these, into the shadow of a fool’s gold parachute.

Invigorated by trumped men, we reinvest ourselves to a higher path.  Having reacquired our spirit of 1776 giants, we now emerge ever closer to filling the shoes of all-inclusive icons — progressive geniuses with the courage, even in the face of hanging together, to launch a new birth of freedom:  American Exceptionalism.

Because of Trump, we shall overcome hackers manipulating our elections, the dangers to democracy from our paperless electoral system, the bargain between the good, bad & ugly of life-time judicial appointments, an Electoral College no longer immune to mob-rule – and, the K.I.S.S. of shaking things up.

With a trumped administration, threatening not only the undoing of an Obama legacy, but the heritage of our American Experiment, We the People, though descendants of shameless Thanksgiving thieves, stealing from America’s original native culture — like any unvarnished work-in-progress, rarely lunging forward – we now progress arbitrating with the few who prefer to anchor us in, What is Past is Prologue.

With the rise of immoral leadership trolling us into an all-time low for our nation of immigrant descendants, forgotten truth looms reincarnated, inviting our reaffirmation:

  • The Emancipation Proclamation
  • 19th Amendment awaiting ratification of our Equal Rights Amendment
  • I have a Dream
  • The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die

embracing anew this fact of faith in ourselves:  almost 2.9 million more voters chose a female Democrat in our last presidential election.

A waring Trump is best defeated with positive acclamation:  Those, who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.  Changing minds, like the long arm of the law, catch up with nuclear button size bravado, saving us from men needing to compensate.

It’s not a money-grabbing president’s crude personality nor smug mental dullness of a UN Ambassador.  It’s the fire and fury motivation of seventeen last minute appointments of state prosecutors, that is potentially an obstruction of justice.

It’s a golfer-in-Chief, emulating the authoritarian governments of Egypt, Libya, Poland, Hungary, Thailand, Somalia, China and Turkey (whose bodyguards attacked peaceful American protesters on American soil) that demands we vote to reset America’s democratic course.

It’s about, bought and paid for Czars of treason, eroding America with quiet domestic terrorism, and a White House abdicating America to, seizing the moment Xi Jinping and Drain the Swamp originator, Putin.

It’s about embracing our flaws so closely, they suffocate, because changing our minds and ourselves is America’s DNA.

We Resist, Persist and are Indivisible, not so we can ban the trumped, but in harmony, be the hope in Casablanca’s battling National Anthems that subdues the war with our fears.
