All Rise:  Only Love Remains and Other Radical Thoughts – OpEdNews.com Headline and TREMR Staff Pick

Posted on

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was mistaken:  our U. S. Constitution was never intended to be a Biblical Rock of Gibraltar – but more an exceptional evolution of enlightenment, reflecting and anticipating even more education through experimentation, a moonstruck tide of ever evolving humane humanity – even revolutionary female ideas of equality.

So, Hillary Clinton is really our 45th – our first Russian president, Donald Trump and we, mesmerized by a white, White House show remain hitched to an Electoral College created by One Percenters fearing mob rule in 1776 – which 243 years later, is a self-fulfilled prophecy – hemorrhaging foreign investments and bloated by anti-American rallies from Charlottesville to, send her back.

Radically I submit, our U. S. Constitution, especially regarding presidential powers, Checks and Balances and the myth that only nine Justices does a Supreme Court make, needs to rise anew.

Yielding to Corporatism’s media marketing us to buy into the over consumerism of deaf, dumb and blind, all we like sheep states of mind, we risk losing, Oh Beautiful.

Our 21st century radical truth reflects the stench of averted eyes, proving not even Bernie Sanders can successfully retrieve us, if relying on millions of Americans rising up to make it so – not if we remain willing doormats to mutual bitterness and twisted lies sponsoring forever domestic and foreign wars – though aided and abetted by Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist and his four conservative colleagues: Justices Sandra Day O’Connor, Antonin Scalia, Anthony M. Kennedy and Clarence Thomas on 9 December 2000.

Still even dust will rise, when shaken from bigoted, malice aforethought.

If absorbed into the universal lessons of moonlight’s ebb and flow, our hopes rise with each new dawn, whether weather is blistering sunlight or clouds flooding us with real time forecasts predicting, America’s reckoning is on the rise.

The potential to rise above the lies of maddening crowds is not in silencing them, but in self-revelation, breaking our silence:  America is neither broke – save in our lacking the unity to debunk, Trickle Down in Citizen’s United repeal – nor broken, apart from failing our Statue of Liberty promise.

Accepting, we are our brothers keepers and responsible for earth and all therein, our heads will be unbowed by the tyranny of Hedge Fund traitors, bankers corroding elected officials and the treason of exiling scientific thought, thinking banning learning will impede America’s evolution to eyes resolutely forward and vision on the rise.

Radical Truth:  some, like Americans still not into, a more perfect union, will never trust Democrats.

Choices:  fixate on those who will never love all Americans as they claim to love America, or we unite with those who are involved with all life on earth – particularly the lives of children who are even now exposed to our reckless elected buffoonery.

Trump’s Acting Cabinet can shoot us with intentionally insensitive tyrannical words.  Some authorities can cut us with their eyes until we too, can’t breathe.  Some racists may wound us with hatefulness, but as Charlton Heston, if not Moses, told Pharaoh Ramses – what happens next may have already come from our lips, for there are children alive today, even those who have school lunch money, who will have to live with the damage we have done to their expectation of safe food, air and water.

America’s real power is in the global respect and love we regain.  Therefore, neither we nor our Constitution need be enslaved, as were our predecessors, by a Justice Department opinion memo granting a sitting president, regal absolution from legal consequences.

Be not beset with gloom, for beyond Congressional Impeachment and indictment or Cabinet invoked 25th Amendment, We the People are the rising tide that lifts all boats and people in hope, to rise.

Radical assurance:  not all voting for Trump/Pence are racist supremacists; not all Caucasians disdainful of people of color; Not all rapist are men and not all eager to crush life, like Trump allies, John Bolton, Stephen Miller, Jeffrey Epstein and George Nader.  However, America’s indulgences permeate the planet, and denial is not the cure but rather the disease upon which, like McConnell’s indifference, the lives of children hang.

Character and honor demand, like air, we rise on the wings of reason to wisdom, knowing, America is our very next thought, assertion and embrace.  Only we can save ourselves from those whose mission it is to program us with lies we tell ourselves about ourselves.  Like Neil Armstrong, America’s next one step, must be a, Liberal, giant leap for mankind.

Listen, and we will hear our immigrant ancestors reminding us, what we did to the least among us, we do to ourselves.  America’s future depends on the freedom of every child to breathe free the air of renewal – so as life intended, all rise.

Donald Trump is “the Greatest Hoax Ever Perpetrated on Americans” – TREMR Staff Pick & OpEdNews.com Headline

Posted on Updated on

As William Barr mounts his already shame stained DOJ throne to squat on the rear receptacle crusted over with Trump’s executive order to defy all Congressional subpoenas, his stream of spying spin, from Russia with Love through a media too lazy to look beyond surface excrement, adds another slick of jaundice to our current seat of government.

By comparison, our 2000 coup d’état aided by the U.S. Supreme Court, and abetted by Reagan’s ultra conservative appointee, Justice Antonin Scalia – preemptively striking out Florida’s Supreme Court, was more blunt force trauma than takeover by Trump/Pence/Bolton/Mnuchin/Pompeo/McConnell – by a thousand cuts.

Domestic spies heavy laden with Koch and Deutsche Bank dirty laundry, coming in from the cold to warm their feet on ever increasing GOP, boil, boil toil and trouble for, of, by and for the people government – the Trump syndicate flips an AG middle finger not just at one co-equal branch but to the entire Land of the Free tree, including Founding roots.

Perhaps another reason to un-elect Donald Trump in 2020, is to be able to walk along 5th Ave without fear of being shot by a President of the United States – or at least, deny absolution to Trump’s Global and pre-pardons to go – as Conservatives amass attack from the female Right flank, in state legislatures’ push to pit lower courts against what they expect in a Kavanaugh v. RBG SCOTUS.

Imagine being both poor and female, whether paleface or tanned out of history:  post tax cuts for super wealthy, twisting poverty standards to adjust for fewer Americans qualifying for Food Stamps.

The Non-exonerated investigated excommunicating justice from the Department of Justice, now investigating how his private foreign parts got probed without facilitating any hired urinating sources.

Trusting Pharmaceutical Opioid pushers and health insurance ravens is as dangerous as believing in peddlers of fear herding us into desperation that settles for any ol’ unqualified leaders.  As a result, we’re being Saturday Night Massacred, again.

While many well-meaning parents remain whirling under the pressure of those who teach fear of vaccinations, fear of affirmative action and fear of true patriotism:  the courage of, first do no harm – even when thinking for oneself, remember America’s greatness has always come from collectively caring for the common good.

Repetitive Republican talking points have made an unquenchable cliché of, I’m not a scientist, so when Science Guy Bill Nye goes ballistic on those who refuse to hear the truth about what they see, is it any wonder that logic is sacrificed on the altar of needing a stimulated political Base?

Smarter to, full stop conservatives trying to pry out of our grasp on reason, the birth of a new onslaught on women’s Constitutional rights – eager to clone Alabama, Georgia and Ohio reverberation of eleven Republican dominated legislatures, with their MAGA on, for another round of:  the Trail of Tears, Slavery, police beaten Suffragettes, McCarthyism and Jim Crow.

To the peril of America’s humanity, we’ve Right-Winged patriotism, deserted the less fortunate, scorned human kindness, whitewashed dishonesty and betrayed our Constitution so much – finding our way out of the quicksand of a trumped GOP bog seems as insurmountable as defeating a raving, self-aggrandizing, narcissistic, maniacal demagogue, whose practiced charisma incited in an otherwise sane and industrious people, the willingness to allow the slaughter of more than six million human beings.

Nonetheless, despite this incredibly unimaginable horror, human decency overcame, and devastated families prevailed.

Collective self-delusion emboldens lawless executive action, whether emanating from Wall Street boardrooms, bankers banking on bank induced recessions or a foreign agent occupying the White House.

Change for the better never follows voting against the best interests of union members, small businesses or farmers oppressed by the side effects of violent white supremacists and executive privilege’s trade wars against patriotic voters in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin.

It’s not the color Tim Russert emulators paint our States, but the lacquer with which we ourselves stain our souls.

It’s descendants of lynch mobs – Alt-Rightness wrongly hijacking, do the Right Thing – and the vulnerable to quick and easy fixes of false prophets without a plan.

It’s falling for the showmen of over-simplification spouting lies camouflaged by promises of coal reruns and manufacturing returns – only to recycle Blue-Collar workers, and women, to their 1898 place.

It’s failing to internalize these self-evident truths:

As conservative Republicans trumpet refueled War on Women, reason responds:  Lady Justice, blindfolded and not, our Statue of Freedom atop DC’s Capitol Building and our Statue of Liberty — are all women.
