Everyday In America…Today Another Step Towards Salvation…

Everyday in America, we are faced with some new challenge that we have awakened due to our own self-examination…and we will continue to encounter these challenges as long as we live our lives and function in a great divide…

This journey of salvation is necessary to change the hearts of many and strengthen the hearts of those familiar with the path our entire nation must now take part in…or perish.

Today, we reached a pinnacle in the quest of salvaging our humanity, with a verdict that announced to the world that we can reach into our hearts…and uphold truth…honor our principles and values in acknowledging that everyone, regardless of color, are entitled to life…liberty…and the pursuit of happiness. God honored life in creating it…we can honor life by preserving it…it is our duty to be shepherds of life…not to discriminate and decide who has the right to live and breathe…and who doesn’t.

I experienced a sense of peace in my tears while hearing the verdict in this trial of Derek Chauvin and his taking of George Floyd’s life…for his (George’s) family…and all the other families touched and torn apart by racism so blatantly practiced by some in law enforcement uniforms… who constantly breach their oaths with impunity to “protect and serve”…as a way to exterminate and eliminate those who do not look like them… As was the case with my brother…and so many countless others through the years…and still continuing… because of the color of their skin…and their justice was not an option to ever be considered…until now.

We still have a long, long road to travel in ultimately understanding what it means to be a part of humanity and stand up for human lives…not colors…and understand that diversity is God’s gift of love to us…He sees the beauty and purpose in every human being… Can’t we?

Today’s verdict gave us a flame in the torch that we must carry forward…on our journey to salvation as a nation…and as people who belong to the human race…striving to preserve our humanity….

We….are the reflection of our salvation….

We are the flames that ignite…and light…the torch we carry forward today…

Let us use it…to light our way into every tomorrow…..

To Unlearn Hate…

Had my brother Stanley lived…today would have been his birthday…

He was killed by police while visiting relatives in Louisiana…away from his California home. He would have been 68.

I wonder, “What will it take to unlearn hate?” How can those who have come to believe that anyone who does not look like them… cannot have the same rights to life as they do? Self-appointed judges over others…will come to be judged themselves…it is Universal Law…of which there is no escape.

Another young, Black life was taken over the weekend…Daunte Wright…20 years on this earth…ended in a single gunshot. The officer said she meant to “taze” him. Why? A gun mistaken for a Taser…How could a mistake like that be made? Perhaps if violent police reactions were checked before being carried out…more lives of color would be spared…but first, they must unlearn hate…

The stereotypes…myths…resentments and hatreds must be confronted and laid to rest. The need to end Black lives by police must be addressed and given the tools necessary to bring about change and equality in the treatment of people of color.

There was no need for violence against Daunte Wright…Violence isn’t the road to compliance. It is often the road to ending a life. And ten times out of ten it is the life of the Black suspect. Justified by magnifying the victim as having an unsavory lifestyle…such as drugs…or a previous conviction record…and what of those who have no prior convictions? Something is always produced as justification for taking their lives. Mainly, for being Black.

A 26-year police veteran can’t tell the difference between a Gun and a Taser? This is going to be a long road…a chaotic road…a solemn road…whatever road is traveled…Justice…must come at the end of that road.

America is walking backward…

To Unlearn Hate…can take a lifetime…and then some…however, we must start somewhere…and it must start TODAY.

To wait until tomorrow…will be too late.

Our country can’t afford to wait…

To unlearn hate….

A Time For Balance…

A Time For Balance…

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven…

Ecclesiastes 3 lays out in detail about every purpose having a season and a time.

Here is a summary…

A time to be born…

A time to die…

A time to plant…

A time to sow…

A time to kill…

A time to heal…

A time to break down…

A time to build up…

A time to weep…

A time to laugh…

A time to morn…

A time to dance…

A time to cast away stones…

A time to gather stones…

A time to embrace…

A time not to embrace…

A time to get…

A time to lose…

A time to keep…

A time to cast away…

A time to tear…

A time to mend…

A time to be silent…

A time to speak…

A time to love…

A time to hate…

A time for war…

A time for peace…

Now is the time for balance…

For all things that have been done…contrary to the order of life and environment…there will now be balance.

To continue with the lies and actions which continue to adversely affect lives…the perpetrators will know balance as a result of their transgressions…

To watch a man…murdered before our very eyes…and to use defenses such as “angry crowd interference” with an officer’s judgement… or drugs killed him… or any other ludicrous excuse in defense of the action which took George Floyd’s life…is strongly trying convince us that we did not see what we did in fact see…An officer of the law positioned with his knee firmly planted on a man of color’s neck…while he cried out that he could not breathe.  Maybe if George Floyd were allowed to live…eventually, perhaps drug use would have taken his life…instead of a knee firmly planted in his neck cutting off his ability to breathe.

Why don’t we ask for an example? Why don’t we try the same situation on someone…recreating the act itself, to position a person on top of a person…knee in neck…for 9 minutes and 29 seconds, and see if they can survive it, without any repercussion…or better yet, live to tell about it.

Become George Floyd…

Feel that knee in your neck…

Now is the time for balance…

Every day in America…we are confronted with standing up and being a country of defending liberty and justice for all… We can’t run away…hide our heads in the sand…or keep silent…

We cannot afford to fail the dream of America…

We cannot afford to sell America down the river…

We cannot afford to forfeit Freedom…

Our very souls depend on it…

A time for every purpose under heaven….

Now…..

Guardian Of Light…

At any time one can open up to Light…One can accept the Light…One can surrender to the Light…

We are all at crossroads in our lives…we have all been called to face the dawning of another change in the history of humankind…

The challenges which have been unfolding before us… will continue to unfold and take place…until we understand the real meaning of our lives…and the roles we play upon this planet…and in the lives of others…those we know…and those we have yet to know….There is absolutely no way around our connectivity to one another…friends…loved ones…enemies…strangers…we will never sever the thread that connects all of us…and everything…within our worlds…and the universe.

Perhaps you have never ventured outside of your universe…convinced that your world is of your own creation and those in it…are by your own design… You can continue to believe it…if you like…yet, it will never change what is…

We all have been called to task with the present state and functioning of our country… Who can deny that what is taking place from politics to food on the table…has not affected each and every one of us in some shape or form…

America is under siege…

We have an invisible enemy in the form of a virus…that has taken over our lives…to show us the meaning of our lives…and still, there are many who choose to defy this virus…and their defiance is affecting and putting many others at risk. So much for autonomy…

I have written a poem…

It calls everyone of us into action… We are Guardians…We must hear the voice within that is speaking to us all to do what is right…and to stand vigilant and strong…and enter the Light…

There is more to life than living…

One must master the Art of Giving…

Learning to open up your heart

Will give you a marvelous start…

It will guide you to Truth and Right…

Marking your journey

As a Guardian of Light…

Many will try

To Lead you astray…

Be strong

Walk on

Keep silent… and Pray…

Know and trust

The Power within…

Your angels will assemble

And rush to defend…

Hold to the laws

Handed down from Above…

Generate the Magic…

And Wisdom of Love…

And soon…

Very soon…

Before the falling of night…

You will have become…

A Guardian of Light….

It is written that mankind will destroy itself…It is a vision that is coming close to being realized…especially in light of the pandemic now plaguing the planet…and human impatience to practice patience and protocol…along with blatant indifference to Equality on every level of human existence…

Things MUST change…We can all be instruments of change…and salvation…

Your Light within…is calling you to act without…

You are a Warrior…

You are…A Guardian of Light….

What If…

What if…

Every act of human kindness…and every act committed against humanity…determined the fate of our existence continuing on this planet…along with the continuity of life on Earth…

Would that change your heart?

Would kindness and charity always be at the top of your “to do” list?

What if…

Every negative act…took away 24 hours of Earth’s rotation around the Sun…lessening and shortening all life expectation? With consciously committed negative acts, increasing this phenomenon…by the power of 100?

What if…

You could reduce 10 acts of negativity by standing up to racial injustice…and ensure the world would turn another revolution…would you?

What if…

The meaning of life isn’t complexity…but simplicity…and the simplicity…is simply learning how to love one another…without conditions…without bias?

What if…

Thoughts were things…and things were thoughts…and we’ve manifested harmful thoughts and things into the world…Can we change our thoughts and things into that which is more beneficial and positive to humanity and our planet?

What if…

You really were the key to changing America and the world by always standing up to racial injustice?

What if…

You could erase negativity by your input of positivity…at every given opportunity?

What if…

Practicing simplicity opened the door to understanding that love is unconditional and unbiased?

What if…

In recognizing that thoughts are things…and things are thoughts…and consciously channeling only the good would bring about positive and beneficial manifestations which would elevate humanity and our planet to a reachable state of peace?

Take away the “what if…” from everything said…

It’s all true….

We must want to embrace the good and the positive…more than those who embrace and magnify negativity.

What if…

You gave yourself over to Love?

Let go…let Love…

And witness the transformation…

What if…

You like it?

To Blame…Is To Shame…Ourselves….

America is falling to a sickness which can be treated…

Blaming Asians for the virus…and perpetrating violence against people of Asian descent…is to shame ourselves.

To continue this ignorance with hatred is a direct attack upon our humanity…

Whenever acts of hatred are visited upon another it creates a chain effect of deterioration upon the growth and development of the human race in consciousness and spirituality…

And when acts of kindness and defense is given in protecting the rights of those violated by such acts of hatred and stupidity…it raises the bar of hope for humanity…

We blame and shame ourselves in doing nothing…because it only continues the cycle of mental madness which feeds itself and grows in its dysfunctional prowess…with every unchecked folly projected upon another in hatred….

Our saving grace are those who stand up to hatred by standing strong with the victims…speaking out…and challenging those who are infected with their own debilitating virus: Hatred.

There is a cure for the virus of hatred…

Yes…hatred can be eradicated…where it can spread no more…

The cure is Love….

To Blame….is to Shame…ourselves…

If we continue to ignore the cure which will give humanity longevity…

We will succumb to the virus and disease of Hatred…

And the greatest cure of all…is free of charge and always available to tap…

Love one another…

Develop your immunity….

Today…..

All For One…And None For All…

It’s time to take a serious and truthful look at the Republican Party…

Who are they supporting? It is clear that they are not supporting the American public who choose to support their conservative beliefs through the GOP…

Neither Republicans in the Senate or Republicans in the House, supported the American Rescue Plan…

All for one…and none for all…

The GOP has shown their true colors. They are loyal only to their party…not America…and not their constituency…They want and solicit the support of Republican Citizens when it is advantageous to serving their purpose…such as keeping their seats in The Senate and the House…to continue to persecute and character assassinate members of the Democratic Party, who despite shortcomings, are always supporting the American people…when their efforts are not blocked and attacked by the GOP. “Club GOP” has made itself exclusive to “self-service.”

Let’s clear up one very important truth that the GOP keeps touting as “excessive and unnecessary “free money” to the ailing and suffering American citizens, during this most dark and ravaging of times in American history; it is not free money…it is your money, taxpayer money, that is being returned to the American public…as it should be…

The GOP want to keep your tax dollars in coffers where they can capitalize off of it and enrich their own interests…

To watch certain Republican politicians continue to distort the truth while keeping their foots on the necks of the American public, both Republicans and Democrats, and Independents alike…is egregious…and a message must be sent to them by their public constituents, that they will no longer be “bamboozled” by the likes of Mitch McConnell and his Elephant “Klan.”

Examine “conservative values” and ask yourself if your lives move forward by holding on to traditions that can no longer be held in time… Or are your lives best served by moving forward and creating a better future for your families…and your children’s families, by opening up to a world that can no longer be stifled by traditions of the Past, and is forging forward in adjusting itself for the Future?

Without change, we stand to stagnate and perish in a country that will destroy itself in moving against the tide of change in fighting to remain in the dungeon of dark and archaic practices, which extend to Racism, Separatism…White Supremacy…Citizen Suppression…Poverty…Division…Inequality…Injustice…and the continued corruption in political arenas and misuse of taxpayer funds, while denying American citizens the right to a living wage, and a quality of life, that is always being touted as the “American Dream.”

The rights of Health Care…food on your table and a roof over your head, should not be the object of a “dream” but a right of passage to a dream of attainment which rises above fundamental elements of living a life above the poverty line.

How many Republican citizens will benefit from the American Rescue Plan, supported and passed by Democrats, but not their Republican constituents in the Senate and the House? Countless…and many are in desperate need of a hand up…yet not one of their Republican representatives gave them that “hand up.” Continuing to give your support to a “dead” party…is a continued walk to the death house for Republican citizens…It’s time to assess and put in leaders and representatives who have the best interests of the people and the country ahead of their own self-serving agendas.

The people of this country deserve to live and be given the opportunities which will give momentum and credibility to their dreams being realized…and a “hand up” when pandemics like “Covid-19” come to visit it’s horrific agenda upon the population.

The American Rescue Plan is putting our tax dollars to their best use…for the people…all people…regardless of party lines…this isn’t about parties…this is about being “American.”

If we can’t support one another in our times of need…then we are truly marked for doom.

The Republican Party embraces “All for One…and None for All…”

We must continue to demonstrate and support, “All for One…and One for All…” at all costs….

With our country and its citizens on the line…we must always remember and support America and her people…political parties come and go…we have only one country…and one people…Let us not lose sight of what makes America a home and a nation…it isn’t Democrats or Republicans or any political party…it is her people.

All For One…and One for All…

God Bless America….

What Happens Now? Where Do We Go From Here?

What Happens Now? Where Do We Go From Here?

We must decide and make a conscious choice on what happens now…and where we go from here as a nation…and as a people.

We have been given a revelation and expose´ of the decay and corruption actively functioning and deteriorating our country in the form of “self-serving” politicians…particularly represented by the GOP.

What happens now? Where do we go from here?

Party ideology and manipulation and their “interpretation” of the laws which govern our country…are damaging and destructive, divisive, and if we aren’t mindful and careful…will end with the downfall of America…

We have witnessed in our country the dangers and cost of “dictatorship” and extremists actions by putting a political party’s interests…before the interests of our nation.

With a country divided…and allowing what America was subjected to during the last administration…with the GOP and their president’s actions “immune” from accountability…it sends the wrong message.

Democracy is destructible…democracy is weak…democracy can be toppled…if democracy can’t enforce accountability.

What is more disheartening is to see how many people are willing to follow those who disrespect and dishonor…and disregard their oaths to America and its citizens…because they have been on the “crumb” receiving end for so long, they will believe and buy into anything…for a chance to be…something.

America and Americans deserve better than what it has been receiving from the political arena for so long…

We must pay attention to what is going on…and what is going on around us…

Especially in our government… when a door is opened to defy democracy…and it is not closed by accountability to those actions…more will feel free to walk through it…eventually leading a path to successful insurrection and sedition.  January 6, 2021 was a warning…and a preview of things to come…if we do not unify behind accountability…especially accountability of the GOP.

Trump unwittingly delivered the truth in exposing the face of our country with his actions and the complicit and selfish actions and dealings of his fellow Republicans…framing the racial divide…economic disparities…and the thread on which our democracy dangles…due to the rampant and blatant corruption, disregard and manipulations of constitutional law and the rule of law…without conscious regard or remorse….

Democracy was not formed for the power of one political party over another…it was born out of bipartisanship—something long, long lost on the GOP…They have set America on a path to failure and doom…by embracing the most dangerous of her flaws…Power…Greed…and Racism.

Self-hatred only serves to destroy…Immigration is self-hatred to anyone in the Republican party who supported Trump’s agenda on Immigration.  Everyone in the Republican Party is an immigrant…or are children of immigrants…How can you condemn what you are?

What kind of people are these who say they are a party of the people?

They are more like a collective of individuals using the guise of a people’s party as their own private vehicle; allowing them to shape and form the country to realize their own self-serving agendas…while “shepherding” their flock of supporters to the slaughter…shouting all the way that it is indeed the other political party responsible for all of the hardship and partisanship visited upon their supporters…to shield and conceal their true intentions, deceptive actions and natures…

Where we go from here…and what we do now is crucial…Again, one cannot just hand over their pearls to swine wherein they will only be trampled and crushed into powder…under their feet…and under their bus…

The American people aren’t deaf…dumb…or blind to what we have been witnessing in America over the decades…especially the last four years…with the exception of those who choose not to face or believe what has been happening around them…

Ask yourselves…How did Fascism and Nazism come about? It didn’t just spring up from the night all of a sudden…Seeds were planted and nurtured…and allowed to thrive and grow…Just as Trumpism was seeded…aided and abetted…nurtured…and allowed by the GOP…to thrive and grow.  Warning…Warning!

What happens now? Where do we go from here?

That depends upon us…

What do we want to happen now?

Where do we go from here?

Accountability…starts with each and every one of us…

What do we want for America?

Who do we want to represent America?

How do we want to represent America?

How do we want to grow America?

What does America mean to you?

Does America reflect…you?

Do You…believe in America?

What happens now?

You…happen now…

Where do we go from here?

You chart the course…You decide…

Your future is calling…

America…is calling…

Her future…

Is your future…

Our here…is Now…..

I Am An American…First.

I am an American…First.

I am not a political party.

My loyalty…is to America.

I’ve always believed in America…despite what I have experienced as a woman of African and Native American descent…

My African ancestors were not immigrants…they were brought over against their will…as slaves…My Native American ancestors were the indigenous people of America…and their treatment at the hands of European “settlers” put many Nations on reservations…or extinction.

And still…I am an American… First…

To watch Republicans and the counsel of attorneys continuously defend “monstrous lies” and seditious, insurrectionist actions, clearly without any stretch of the imagination, shows that they have no allegiance to America…only to themselves…and the GOP. Our country be damned as far as they are concerned…The oaths each one of them took, mean nothing to any of them…including the oaths taken by their impeachment counsel…the day they became attorneys…which begins as follows…

I, (state your name) do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitutions of the United States, and of this state…”

What I viewed of their performance in the impeachment trial…Trump’s defense has grossly abandoned their oath…

The oath Senators take is as follows…

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same: that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

What I have witnessed over the last four years…culminating with January 6, 2021…the GOP has tragically abandoned their oath of office…and placed their party above the country…and the American people…solidifying their stand against America first, and their allegiance…to themselves.

“America First” does not mean separatist policies removing America from the hub of Allies and American aid to under served countries…or discriminating in immigration. America is a country of immigrants…with the exceptions mentioned above.

“America First” means being an American first…and upholding the meaning of America and her principles and values…and “one nation…under God.” Not one nation under white supremacy…white privilege…or Trumpism.

Many Republicans have abandoned their principles and values….

Republicans will not vote to impeach Trump because not only will they be convicting themselves of complicit behaviors with their support of impeachment (even though they know it is the right thing to do), they will also be condemning their party to death…which is already dead in the water…yet they believe they can continue the illusion of its viability…if they can continue to feed the “monstrous lie” and feed it to the American people as “moving on to heal” and impeachment of someone no longer in office…is “unconstitutional.”

Aside from the fact that nowhere in the Constitution is such an inference made as to the offending statesman being subjected to prosecution only if he/she remains in office…it is not a defense.  Someone who has committed high crimes and misdemeanors against the country is not absolved of the offense or accountability to the offense, because they are no longer in office. 

If that were the case…all laws would be obsolete and not applicable upon anyone leaving a public office…or any office…or any job…statesman…civilian…or citizen. If only….

America is not a game of “Monopoly.” Trump does not get a “Get Out Of Jail Free” card…According to our democracy, there are laws which hold anyone who breaks or goes against them…Accountable…

To date…America sets a poor record on “Accountability.”

The fact is…Trump was impeached while still in office…a matter of semantics…delays to trials don’t erase the crimes.

Mitch McConnell asked for a delay of the trial as a ploy to garner momentum to dismiss the trial by putting forth that Trump was no longer subjected to be charged with accountability of the insurrection…because he was no longer the sitting president.  The Constitution does not dismiss blatant acts against democracy by something as simple as “He is no longer the President.”

The actions of high crimes and misdemeanors have been committed throughout Trump’s four years in office with lies and propaganda being endorsed and pushed by the GOP…and it resulted in what every American witnessed on January 6, 2021…and the world.

Should Trump be acquitted by his Republican GOP Senators…and they make this defense of a lie credible… this is the message that will be sent to EVERY American citizen and beyond… Democracy will no longer be effective or credible…or taken seriously…anywhere…Everyone will expect and demand…their “get out of jail free” card…and entitled…according to the GOP and Trump’s defense team.

God Bless America…

Someone who is an American, first…would honor their oaths and allegiance to America, her democracy, and her citizens.

Someone who is an American, first…would not hold themselves above the interests of the country…and continuously incite and promote division by placing the blame on the party truly working for bipartisanship…which happens to be the Democratic Party.

Someone who is an American, first…would stand up for what is true and just…and not continue to build on a “monstrous lie” to pull the wool over the eyes of American citizens, in order to downplay their abuse of power and lack of honor and integrity in their roles to serve our country…

These utterly flawed and degenerate individuals…have no business representing any portion of the American public…

The 14th Amendment, section 3 states as follows…

“No person shall be a Senator or Representative or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.  But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

According to this Amendment, Senators and Representatives in Congress can also be removed for engaging in insurrection or rebellion…How many GOP Senators and Representatives are guilty of complicity to such actions, and have yet to be held accountable by this constitutional law?

As it is written…so let it be done.  

Rejecting the facts…does not make what took place…go away. 

Trump Defense…go tell it on the mountain…over the hills…and everywhere…Trump is not responsible for what comes out of his mouth…especially what came out of his mouth on January 6, 2021…

The Capitol Police Officer who lost his life defending the Capitol Building… Brian Sicknick…tell his family that he’s not really dead…because Trump did not incite an insurrection….

Tell the officers who committed suicide because of the trauma of what took place on January 6, 2021, that they took their lives for no reason…

Tell the many who were traumatized and suffered physical injuries…that it’s all in their imagination…January 6, 2021 never happened…

Tell the American people…and the people around the world who witnessed the events of January 6, 2021…and the Trumpism planted and nurtured in the 43 months leading up to the election… that led to the insurrection…that we really did not see what was happening before our eyes…it was all an illusion…

Tell the insurrectionists acting on the orders of “their president” that their fallen comrade wasn’t shot to death in the act of committing a crime in storming the Capitol Building to harm others in the name of Trump…and that all of those arrested for being a part of their attempt to overthrow the government, will be set free and all charges dropped…because the person responsible for their sedition and insurrection…is no longer the president…and no longer accountable for his failed coup…

Tell all of the Senators and their families…especially Republican Senators and Vice President Pence…that running for their lives was totally unnecessary…because their constituents in the form of those Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021, were not there to do them harm…

Tell everyone who witnessed the attack on the Capitol Building, on January 6, 2021, after Trump’s “empowering speech of civility” was going to happen anyway…Knowing full well, that if Trump had delivered a message accepting the will of the American people’s voting process, which resulted in Joe Biden being elected as President of the United States…back when the election was called as such, last Novem

ber…January 6, 2021…would have never happened.

“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but hard words stir up anger.” ~ Proverbs 15:1

Trump systematically fed his supporters lies that he knew would culminate in an eruption which would seek to undermine the foundation of our democracy…which has been his purpose…and now stands on the brink of being realized.

 The presidential oath of office is as follows…

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”       

Trump took the oath of office of the President of the United States on January 20, 2017…

He disregarded this oath and proceeded to take away individual rights…and overpower the legislative and judicial branches by putting in what he felt were “Trump loyalists” set to do his will upon his request…the GOP became his party…catering to his every whim…until they realized they would not be able to sustain his re-election…that their political futures were at stake…and their party was no longer credible in the eyes of Republicans who held to the standards of the Party of Lincoln…

Alexander Hamilton recorded in the written word that impeachment is “a method of national inquest into the conduct of public men accused of violating the public trust.”

Trump violated the public trust by lies, deception, incitement, division and using his supporters to storm the Capitol Building in his manipulation of their loyalty; which also led to the endangerment of political colleagues on State and Federal levels…

Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution states…

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Violations of the law and abuses of power must be held accountable…

If they are disregarded and the manipulation of those laws are allowed to take place…we must acknowledge that democracy…is indeed…dead…powerless…and without meaning.

I am an American…First.

I believe we must uphold the laws of our land…and protect the meaning and execution of our Constitution in upholding the principles and values that America claims to stand on…

I am not a Democrat or Republican…first…

I will…and have (but not for Trump) cross the aisle with my vote…for the candidate who would best represent the interests of America and her citizens interests at home and abroad…

Trump was never that person…in either election… in my assessment of the best face and character of America… as President. He never was a president…or my president.

We have witnessed the true nature and character of those who masquerade as “Americans and patriots”…when they are nothing more than seditionists…insurrectionists…traitors…and destroyers of Truth…Justice…Liberty…and Freedom.

They would rather contribute to the downfall of democracy and all that it stands for…rather than support their country by stepping up and doing what’s right and just.

The real truth is…long after these insurgents and fake American politicians in the government perish…America… is what will be remembered as a once emerging nation that had all of the components to be a haven and a beacon…

Then it was destroyed… by men and women who put their interests…and their agenda…ahead of a country…and its citizens…which they took solemn oaths to protect.

Were they ever Americans…First?

Those who usher in the fall of our democracy…are not Americans…first.

Those who stand by and allow and practice abuse of power at the cost of a nation and its people… Are not Americans…first.

Those who don’t live by the laws…yet expect others to do so…Are not Americans…first.

Americans…first…are in grave danger of extinction…

And becoming a part of the American fabric…that once stood for something greater than itself…

The Last of the Americans….

The Will Of The People…

It was the will of the people and the voice of their votes that freed the country from a tyrant…

It will once again be the will of the people and the people’s vote that will be the instrument of securing a second impeachment vote through the Senate…

An insurrection was recruited…nursed…and empowered by Trump to his supporters, to rise up against the Capitol where the Senate and House were in session to ceremoniously confirm the results of the 2020 Election, declaring President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice-President Elect Kamala Harris the victors of said election with the tally of electoral votes.

The present Republican Party has made their position very clear.  They intend to defend a traitor to our country…attempting to overthrow democracy for his own self-serving agenda, in order to retain Trump’s supporters, in a veiled attempt to override the Constitution’s call to hold treason and sedition accountable, by saying Trump is no longer in office, so he is no longer accountable for his actions.

What Constitution are they quoting?! The Constitution does not make such a claim as they are trying to introduce.  There is nothing “unconstitutional” in holding an insurrectionist, in the office of President, impeached for a second time while in office, accountable…It is the duty of the House and The Senate to uphold the remedy of the Constitution of the United States. Didn’t they swear and take an oath to protect the country and its citizens against this very thing? All enemies within and outside of the United States of America?

The whole world witnessed his words…his actions…and his deed of accomplishment…January 6, 2021 is now a part of American history at its worst…nothing will reverse the lives that were lost or the damage that was done…yet something can be done to ensure accountability as called for in the U.S. Constitution: Impeachment. 

The attempt by the GOP to delay the trial until Trump left office, believed that they had a defense to once again look the other way.  Smoke and mirrors are the mastery of the GOP.  Misdirection…Delusion…Complicity…Division. Major players in the Republican Rule Book on fooling the people all of the time to retain power for self-serving preservation. 

The party of Lincoln switched.  Back in the 1860’s, Republicans dominated the northern states, and the Democrats dominated the South…The Republicans orchestrated the expansion of federal power…The Democrats opposed it.  Republicans passed laws granting protections for Black Americans and advanced social justice.  Democrats opposed these expansions of federal power.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a Democratic President, won reelection in 1936 on his introduction of the New Deal, reforms to remedy the Depression.  The remedies included the regulation of financial institutions, the creation of welfare and pension programs, infrastructure development…

They took form in the following programs and agencies…The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), the Civil Works Administration (CWA), the Farm Security Administration (FSA), the National Industrial Recovery Act of 1933 (NIRA) and the Social Security Administration (SSA).

These programs and agencies provided support for farmers, the unemployed, youth and the elderly.

The defeated Republican candidate, Alf Landon, opposed these exercises of federal power.

It is imperative that people understand the stance their chosen parties represent…and how they came to champion the stance that distinguishes one party from the other.  Republicans are the party of “bigger businesses and hands-off government.” It is their assertion that hands-off government is better for business.  Where does that leave the average working-class American? 

Become informed…Read…Research from highly reliable sources…it is tragic to be regarded as sheep…who can be led to slaughter…Trump threw his supporters under the bus…Remember…He told his supporters as he urged them to march on the Capitol Building, “I will be right there with you.”  He was nowhere to be found.  He abandoned them after accomplishing his agenda of getting them to fight his delusional battle…

Today, this is not about labels of division such as “Democrats” or “Republicans.”

When we “see” each other as people…we see and measure the hearts and minds of people…that gives us our true picture…

Who we will trust…

Who we will know by their character…

Who we will know by their integrity…

Who we will know by their honor…

Who we will know by their honesty…

Who we will know by their words…

Who we will know by their word…

Who we will know by their actions…

Who we will know by their deeds…

Who we will know by their truth…

We know that the Party of Lincoln was once a party of the people…

The GOP is now a party of antagonists…championing lies…deceit…corruption…subversion…insurrection…sedition…delusion…exclusion…revolution…white supremacy…white privilege…racism…division…destroyers of democracy…freedom…justice…liberty…America.

Wrong is right…and right is wrong…Self-service is king…and power is supreme…Just ask Mitch McConnell and his Republican cronies.  In their eyes, American citizens are just collateral damage to their complicit behavior in giving Trump a free pass to walk away without accountability for nearly destroying our country under their watch.

We can ensure they are all held accountable…

Stop the support. Stop the funding. Stop voting for those who do not have your best interests at heart. Don’t look at labels…Look at people.  Look for people who are salvageable and redeemable…The Republican party has shown the world who they really are…and what they are really all about.  They didn’t care about standing by their oaths to country and the people…they cared about themselves…and their political careers and futures…without caring about credibility and integrity.

It is so unfortunate that “real” Republicans across the country who stood up to the Trump Manifest, must belong in a party with the Hill GOP, who are disgraces to the former party of Lincoln…

Look at these politicians as who and what they are…people…people who choose and chose to be unsavory…unapologetic…without shame… and abandon their country for power… which is diminishing…

It will be the will of the people that will bring unity in spite of Republican attempts to divide a nation.

It will be the will of the people which will answer the call of the Constitution to hold Trump accountable along with those who aided and abetted his agenda and insurrection to overthrow democracy.

We know that violence never extends itself to purpose…violence is desperation when truth and reason prevail…Trump and his supporters showed the world this with their actions….

We must stand on democracy to deliver democracy…

The Constitution demands accountability by impeachment…there is nothing unconstitutional about it.

The Republican Party does not speak for the people…nor do they know the will of the people…

The road to unity is accountability…

It is the will of the people…for the people…by the people….
