Trump says, I am the Team, al-Baghdadi was a screaming, whining whimpering coward, as though we were watching a movie, Russia was great, Speaker Pelosi kept out of the loop, pendulum Linsey Graham swinging continually between reasonably rational and extremely apoplectic, determined to grant his Impeachment laden benefactor headlines – assisting in sweeping our Kurdish allies under Trump’s rug of betrayal, covering up Russian Goose Step Party marching orders in, The People’s House.
When will we peer into our mirrors and question ourselves, how could we follow blindly, increasingly since 20 January 2001 inaugurated used 11 September 2001 as patriotic pablum to enslave the masses?
We should thank Donald Trump for showing us how low we can go, not just admitting, Syrian Oil is safe, and the hell with Kurds and American troops left in his whimsical harm’s way – but giving us the perfect Fascist throw-back image, so we’ll never again forget why those, rockets red glare inspired something in us to take the less traveled road of renewal, striving to be, a new generation of Americans—tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage.
Now that we’ve heard the bravado Bully Pulpit of Donald Trump and his blustering enablers, we need to recreate our initial intention, that all those the trumped would ban from life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – were created equal to them.
Then, let us wash out the mouth of darkness, deceit and destruction descending from atop rented Gerrymandered government – for we’re either going to continue summoning foreign chaos and condoning Trump sanctioned domestic violent partners relishing in our derailment, or we rediscover our exceptional habit of faith in the justice of unity and equality – as rarely before.
In peaceful assembly, let’s seek to petition our government for a new birth of freedom, replacing Corporate PACs Red Mapping our Land of the Free, with a Red, White and Blue for every hue.
With malice toward none, let’s patriotically trade in our globe-trotting Attorney General and his criminalizing career DOJ civil servants.
Holding these truths to be self-evident, make a joyful noise to a world losing faith in America, knowing Trump may be the loudest, Cheney the worst and Pence the most hypocritical – but none are America’s first.
Reason suggests to the wise, it would be a mistake to think we can afford to wait until after Trump/Pence, to reset our moral compass. Until we replace their GOP Impeachable offenses with
- Respecting our allies
- Eradicating McConnell and Kavanaugh injustice, with a Nation for all of God’s Children
- Indicting all who addict humankind for profit, with heroes fighting our Climate Crisis
There can be no Life, Liberty nor the pursuit of happiness.
Let us question the current Right-Wing ideology financed to dominate our politics, healthcare and our children’s America – and be the voice of those silenced by the indifference of Conservative Caucuses.
Let us be the courageous solutions for Earth’s 21st century challenges.
Of course, we’re fatigued by our myopic media, that smirked too long before remembering 1930s Europe – and weary of the struggle to keep on keeping on, but we will survive when disrobing conjecture and denial in the realization that answers are not found in corporatism’s serfdom, but in the cathedral of rejuvenation, re-invigoration and reinvention.
The Honorable Elijah Cummings was a good man, but until all men are like him, we must keep our wits exceptionally sharp, our vision focused on the all-inclusive delight of liberty and our actions increasingly emulating the Good Samaritan’s, love thy neighbor as thyself – for, in our land, trouble now reigns from on high, in the underbelly of low places – threatening the very foundations of our Founding, while we sleep, manipulated by disinformation.
Wisdom insists we must now be the shoulders for our children that Washington, Franklin, Jefferson, Hamilton, Madison; Biblical Abraham and Lincoln; Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglas, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Sojourner Truth; Teddy & Franklin Roosevelt; John & Bobby Kennedy; Henrietta Lacks and Martin Luther King Jr, remain for us.
No matter our beliefs, dreams, hopes, politics or lifestyle embraces, we must now summon the courage to free the calm suffocating at the core of our self-inflicted turmoil and bring some semblance of singular light within our national darkness.
We need knock at the door of consciousness, trusting that peace will answer, and show us the way to renewal; Not the renewal of Cheney’s, So, as, We Tortured; nor believing our Civil War ever ended – and never again the past that allowed corporate profit to rise above the value of one human life.
