Choose You…

This political party…that political party…following darkness…embracing lies…promoting hatred…endorsing the fall of humanity…selling souls for the material “things” that are nothing more than “tangible” illusions because they cannot be taken with you…nor will they follow you into the disembodied existence of what is beyond earthly manifestation…

Why follow the paths of those who are leading you away from promoting goodness and light in the world?

What you must come to realize is your path and purpose surpasses those whose mission it is…is to lead you from creating better in the world…and the lives of others…why choose evil? Why play ignorant? Why join the destroyers? You know who they are…you allow them to control you by fear and false promises…they are known as “soul eaters.” We have watched and witnessed some of the most dangerous cast their nets over many…

Trump…McConnell…and every constituent and politician subscribing to and drinking their koolaid are instrumental in destroying the American ideals of real and true freedom and individual dreams of the freedom to prosper…mentally…physically…emotionally…and spiritually…

When are you going to choose…you?

Without the support of the people…political rhetoric would be cast down into oblivion.

Choose You.

Your “sheep mentality” is leading you to slaughter…

Stop being lead by those who care nothing about you…just your power to ultimately give them their agenda…

America has turned into a political party battle ground…if the GOP had not sold their “balls”, and the Democrats had not bartered their “courage”, 2016 through 2020, and January 6, 2021…would have never come into being!

Don’t choose evil…don’t choose lies…believe your ears and eyes…and choose you!

Change is progress…change away from the past guarantees humankind a place in the future to move forward…

Dealing with and endorsing life already lived…is dealing with…and endorsing the “Devil.” After all the word “lived” is the “devil” spelled backwards…

Devil contains the word “evil.” So does the word lived…

Going backwards is “evil.”

Having lived something and choosing to go back is evil…

Living in the past only destroys the present…leaving no path to begin a future…

Leave the Devil behind….

Stop advancing evil…

Choose better…

Choose change…

Choose America over seedy politicians on both sides of the aisle!

Stop crucifying and abandon and ousting politicians on both sides of the aisle who have shown you up until the 2016 election…that they truly love America and not political parties, by choosing their constituents (you) and America first…everyone knows who they are…and were ousted because they were a threat to those “Devil” politicians who continue to lead many astray…for the benefit of themselves…without punishment…before tossing you under the bus…once they secure and use your power of the vote.

Choose You…

Or continue to watch the rise of a nation that doesn’t include you…while it abruptly descends into the abyss of self-destruction….

The choice is…Yours.

Come In, August…Bring Life…Change…And Second Chances…

As we enter the eighth month of the year…we must come to the realization that only the “living” have the ability to change…make change…and create second chances…

Staying rooted in the Past is to wither and die.

To promote the past is to sustain the “living dead”…the “Zombies” we know too well…

Mitch McConnell..

Lindsey Graham…

Donald Trump…

Clarence Thomas…

Joe Manchin…

Kyrsten Sinema…

Amy Coney Barrett…

Neil Gorsuch…

Brett M. Kavanaugh…

Samuel Alito, Jr. …

The specific individuals named are stuck in a place that history is trying to move past…they are all blatantly abusing power and public trust to the detriment of our country…and they are followed by many who are convinced that joining the “living dead” is the place to be…so they have willingly surrendered their power to create positive change for the continuity of life and the life of the planet for which we are only guardians…who cannot reciprocate the gifts of life Earth provides…How sad to utilize free-will to condemn and destroy!

Progress and Change are the only elements which will influence the present course of our nation from further division…chaos…and destruction. Until the Past is laid to rest and progress is embraced and implemented for the betterment of all…every month will be an extension of the months before with every tragedy magnified and increased in severity and continuity…becoming more entrenched in the darkness many believe we have overcome…and left behind. With politicians rehashing the Past as the perfect place to be…and those who follow…America is losing her fight for…Freedom.

When America can progress beyond her past with healing and progressive change…she will have a chance at “greatness.”

When that day arrives…there will be no more Mitch McConnells…Lindsey Grahams…Donald Trumps…Clarence Thomases…Joe Manchins…Kyrsten Sinemas…Amy Coney Barretts…Neil Gorsuches…Brett M. Kavanaughs…Samuel Alito, Jrs. …No GOP members who lack the courage to tell the truth…and put country before Party…No Democrat politician on the Hill who lacks the courage to stand up to derelict Republicans and derelict Democrats who have intentionally lost their direction of purpose in serving their constituents by serving up justice as is written in the Constitution, to relieve them of the duties they swore to uphold.

Democracy is threatened by the lack of courage in politicians to thoroughly uphold the Constitution…by deliberately failing it…and creating ways to move around it. It is a true sign of weakness, along with trying to convince the country that lies are truth…and the truth is lies… Freedom and Democracy can do nothing more than crumble in such an environment.

The “party” system of government must be elevated to truly implement a government for the people by the people…

When we understand that each one of us has the ability to bring about change…second chances and the continuity of life…each month that comes and goes will reflect the realization of progress with the lifting of our voices by protecting and using our power…We the People…give derelict politicians the power…to sink America…

Time to take back that power…

August is a great month for a national “Tea Party.”

Life is freedom…

America is right back where she started…

Only the enemy is not the British…

It’s “fellow Americans”…

Come in, August…..

Under the Guise of Democracy…What Has America Become?

Continuing on this subject, let’s take a look at the forms of governing that function under the guise of “Democracy.”

FascismA form of far-right, authoritarian ultra-nationalism, characterized by dictatorial powers, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and the economy.

Nazism…It is described as a form of fascism against liberal democracy and the parliamentary system…incorporating antisemitism, anti-communism, scientific racism, and the use of eugenics, which is a set of beliefs and practices aimed to improve the genetic quality of a human population.

Kleptocracy…Government by those who seek chiefly status and personal gain at the expense of the governed.

All of these are at work here in America…under the guise of democracy.

The saddest realization of this is people are courted by deception into believing that their voices will be heard…and their wants and needs will be implemented…if they elect the candidate who is the most persuasive of their chosen party in convincing their constituents of such…only delivering compromised versions of what the masses truly need to live a life of quality and promise to a life inclusive of “the American Dream.”

The Trump years provided a sobering inside view into how much Fascism…Nazism and Kleptocracy has situated specific doctrines of their belief and practices into “democracy” by destroying and undermining the principles of Democracy…while exposing the real motives and desires of the Republican Party…carefully orchestrated by McConnell…who carried out Trump’s agenda because it encapsulated the core of McConnell’s beliefs, wants and needs to protect “White privilege and supremacy, while robbing Republican and Democratic citizens of opportunities and finances to realize their entitlements to the “American Dream.” Mitch McConnell is “Old South…Old Conservative…Old Racist”… and a total threat to Change and America moving forward with the times…

Americans…”Baby-Boomers” and Generation X” have grown tired and indifferent to politicians and their empty and half-ass promises to get them into office or keep them there, so they can continue pushing their own self-interests at the expense and sacrifice of the American people… when it comes to money and power for the politicians…Republicans and Democrats which make up the American constituency become “just people” after elections…and all suffer together under the will of corrupt, self-serving politicians on both sides of the aisle…

The truth is a mind-blower and disappointing…

What has America become?

Where are we headed?

What we see is what we get…if we are not honest with ourselves and what is going on around us.

There is no greatness in a nation of division…racism…supremacy…regression…oppression…spiritual bankruptcy…immigration denial from a country populated by immigration…cultural hatred…chaos…pushing democracy by destroying and dismantling its own democracy…denying essential liberties and life sustaining elements to the citizens of its country…a country bent on destroying itself…by wiping out the best of its change and progress…condemning itself to go down in flames….

Under the Guise of Democracy…

This…is what America has become….

Salvation depends upon the collective courage to rid our country of the “poison politics” and those who spread them with such delicious brainwashing of the American public… to keep themselves in office…

Complacency will ensure our country’s descend…

What has America become to you?

Be truthful in your pondering…and take a good long look at what is going on around you…

Don’t fool yourself and don’t fall…

Under the Guise of Democracy…..

Who’s Soft On Crime? The GOP…

The “Elephants” in the room are really the problem…

They will be the straw that breaks America’s back…

People are subjected to the same “wool” everywhere around the world…Just look at Ginni Thomas…Her husband is Clarence Thomas…yes, the Supreme Court Justice Thomas…she wasn’t and isn’t afraid to take her swipe at destroying democracy by taking an active part in the escalating of the insurrection at the Capitol building on January 6, 2021.  Who knows what other treasonous acts this wife of a Supreme Court Justice has been involved in…Makes one wonder about the impartiality and integrity her husband exercises on the bench…

Anyone and everyone watching, reading or receiving news about the confirmation hearings of nominee, Ketanji Brown Johnson and the questions and behaviors of the Republican senators on the panel, namely, Cruz, Hawley and Graham, received a clear view of the tone that continues to divide our country…and if you were looking and listening closely, you received real insight into who is really “soft on crime.”

America must not forget what was witnessed by the GOP and their defense of Master Criminal, Donald Trump. Now, who’s soft on crime?

What’s more, many GOP members supported and still promote the January 6th insurrection of 2021…and believe that those involved in the attempt to overthrow democracy, should not be jailed or prosecuted. Who’s soft on crime?

Highly treasonous events were coddled and dismissed by the majority of the GOP, led by Mitch McConnell.

The female Supreme Justices now sitting on the high court were never subjected to such treatment received by Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Johnson.  Hawley, Cruz and Graham and their pack continue to show citizens and the world how entrenched the racist divide extends itself, and is the true underbelly of the GOP.  Ms. Ketanji Brown Johnson is a highly educated, highly qualified individual who just happens to be Black…and Female…Yet she was subjected to such manufactured and egregiously spawned character insinuations because?!

The Republican Party needs to be dismantled to free the country of their archaic beliefs and practices which will remind them of the true core and values of democracy and bi-partisan politics.  They do not endorse racist or supremacists views or practices. These views and practices negate the meaning of Equality…Liberty…Freedom…Peace…the core foundation of Democracy…along with government by and for all people…not a few…or a chosen handful….

Democrats are by no means perfect…however, they stand closer to Democracy than the GOP…

This Party division has spilled over into the population creating a steady and downward spiral that our country may never recovery from…if we, the people, don’t remember that we are not on opposite sides of Liberty…Freedom…Equality…Peace…we must remember that it is the citizens who suffer the collateral damage of political mistakes and politicians…not the politicians. 

If politicians can’t come together for the good of the country and its citizens…then we the people must unify and show them what bipartisan really means…it is the willingness and coming together in compromise for the benefit of the many…for the benefit of all.

How is GOP politics affecting our country?

Evan Neumann from California, was charged in connection with the January 6, 2021 insurrection on the Capitol building.  He fled to Ukraine…then crossed the border into Belarus because he worried about Ukrainian authorities watching him.

He was granted asylum by Belarus, a Russian ally, for “political prosecution.” In truth, he is a fugitive from justice…a coward.  Runners who avoid and will not stand up to accountability for treasonous and destructive actions have been given prime examples by the GOP and their defense of Donald Trump and his playbook promoting chaos.

Neumann committed acts of violence which included an assault on two police officers, destroying government property at the Capitol building with a metal barrier, amounting to 6 counts against him…He went on state television in Belarus saying that he found the accusations very upsetting, especially the accusations of his hitting a police officer, calling it “baseless.”  He also went on to say, “I do not believe that I have committed any crime.” Sounds chillingly familiar…

If that were true, why run? Why not stand and produce proof of your innocence?

Because bullies and cowards always run or deny any crimes they have committed or been involved in creating…aiding or abetting.  And to run to seek asylum in the country of a Russian ally? Belarus supports Russia’s manufactured attack upon Ukraine, and Belarus has no extradition treaty with the US.

Neumann has become a willing, American pawn for propaganda against the United States.

Thank the GOP for being soft on crime…They supported Trump’s divisiveness and attempted dismantling of democracy to the point where he weakened America in the eyes of the world and encroaching nations…Had they voted to impeach their “leader” the first time around…there never would have been a January 6, 2021 insurrection at the Capitol building…now a stain on America.

The GOP has opened another door which gives American terrorists who revolt against our democracy to flee to countries who view America as a threat to their oppressive and archaic ideologies…becoming useful tools of propaganda for the host countries…whereby joining you to beat you… 

The GOP had two opportunities to be tough on crime…and they retreated both times…abandoning their country and their duties by failing to uphold their allegiances to defend the country and the Constitution…willingly…choosing party over country…to choose your party is choosing yourself…your interests…which speaks volumes about character….

It is crystal clear that the GOP would sell America down the river…and they have…in a huge way which has cast a shadow on American politics forever…

The saddest and most sinister element left behind all their actions are those people who continue to blindly follow and support them…condemning America to a place of no return…if they refuse to save their “sight.”

Don’t be fooled by theatrics and sleight of hand…GOP politics contain both…Sound like Putin?

Same energy…same objective… with the cover of “party politics.”

Look behind the masks…

The truth will set you free…

Not the GOP…

What they conjure up and serve up to the American people continually threatens the fabric of Democracy…

Liberty…

And ultimately…

Freedom….

The Irony of American Democracy…

The Irony of American Democracy…

It is a small wonder that some countries around the world block and fight for their countries not to become “victims” of Democracy as is now happening here in America…the country that pushes it…but does not fully practice it.

How can a country go out into the world and promote a system it does not totally believe in…or exclusively support? 

The only two things America believes in and supports without question is “Dollars” and “Racism.”

It is most unfortunate that Dollars and Racism outweigh the efforts of those who believe in the equality dream and doctrines that would support a free and unified country.  American hypocrisy has laid waste to many developing nations and other countries who believed in and desire a governing system that would allow their citizens to thrive while living in freedom… A dream contrived and distorted by those in our own government fixated on a time in American history when imports of free men and women from African countries were enslaved and forced to build and cultivate a nation of “White Luxury” and self-appointed “White Supremacy.” Atrocities that still haunt and exist in today’s America…

These are the factions that are driving the Republican Party…along with some silent…and a few verbal Democrats, such as Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, to revive “Ole Dixieland.”

These two Democrats can exercise supporting the greater good of the citizens of this country over their going against their party to support a tool the Republicans depend on to stall and avoid bipartisan politics between the two parties; the Filibuster.  It’s time for a change…American politics need an overhaul and dismissal of all that is archaic and oppressive.

Also, remember that Arizona is one of the states adopting laws that support voter suppression…something Senator Sinema supports by her stance alone.

Spurred on by the persuasive lies and rhetoric continually spewed forth by Trump, the GOP (and some Democrats, in their stanch silence) have managed to undermine and change the principal constituent of Democracy: The Right to Vote.

These destroyers of Democracy have managed to change election rules and limit voting rights in 17, soon to be 18 states, in an effort to diminish Democrat turnout and ensure wins of Republican candidates.  The main objective of this partisan, Republican movement is to disenfranchise voters of color, who vote as Democrats.  The off-handed disguise these derelict politicians are using to defend their actions is they’re “cracking down on voter fraud.” Another massive lie conceived by and pushed by Trump and his followers.

The very few cases of “voter fraud” uncovered were committed by Republican voters trying to vote more than once for Trump in the 2020 Election.

There was an Iowa woman who voted twice for Trump and has pleaded guilty to election misconduct…a felony charge.

She turned in two absentee ballots before the November election last year.  Believing Trump’s unsubstantiated claims about the election being “rigged.”

She was arrested while attempting to vote the second ballot.

Her recommended sentence by attorneys are two years of probation and community service…Care to guess what sentence a person of color would pull down for such a felony offense? American “equality” doesn’t apply to people of color as we have witnessed time and time again…

14 Republican majority states have adopted and enacted laws that give partisan GOP officials more control over election oversight…extremely dangerous in controlling the outcome of elections that oppose Republican candidates because they can use any reason to overturn the election results in favor of their candidates! Democracy in action, according to them.  What we are really seeing and witnessing is Authoritarianism… Dictatorship… Fascism. 

Welcome to the “American Dream.”

In the state of Georgia, a Republican commission now has the power to remove local election officials and they are removing Democrats of color from local boards.  The Governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, is a corrupt Republican… who did indeed stack his election by being the Attorney General at the time…and overseer of the votes…that delivered him the position.

In Arkansas, they have taken control from county authorities.

Republicans have introduced about 216 bills in 41 states to give legislatures more power over election officials… 24 of those 216 introduced bills have been enacted into law across 14 states where Republican politicians are in rule.

President Biden gave a speech today in Philadelphia, he shouted to Republicans, “Have you no shame?”

Shame is for those who have a conscience…Republicans have neither conscience or souls…Their allegiance is not to America…but to themselves and their agenda to destroy it…and create another oppressive, divided, unequal, authoritarian nation…where they are in control of life…liberty…and the pursuit of happiness…and dreams are no longer an ideal or hope for real Americans. 

There is a limit to trying to achieve bipartisan politics with “zombies.” Clearly visible to everyone witnessing Republican “politics” that they are dead…soulless zombies…the way to deal with them is to “cut off the heads of the snakes.”

Beginning with reformation or elimination of the filibuster…eliminating the Electoral College…passing executive laws to override Republican state enforced voter suppression laws…and cutting off support to Republicans who endorse and continue to spread Trump’s lies of division and eventual “Armageddon” to Democracy…if those who can put a stop to this “unholy war” on America do not take heed and stop these unholy Republican insurrectionists and anarchists, in the Senate, the House, and in states embracing Racism and America’s sins of White Supremacy, and their inhumanity to those they considered “inferior” to European immigrants who settled here…to escape “oppression.”

The Irony of America…and Democracy…

Will result in the Death of Her…

And Liberty…

And Justice…

For All…

Including the dissident GOP…

Oh…

The irony…..

The ‘New Normal’ Is No Normal…

We must live with the realization that the lives we once knew…will never return again.

Covid-19…Climate Change…The Rise of Racism…The Truth of Racism…has opened the door to much needed change…The ‘New Normal’ Is No Normal…Nothing will ever be the same again.

There are now only two choices to living…to be vigilant…or not to be at all. The avenues of exiting have been provided and are presently being exercised by chance…

The pettiness…lies…corruption and people manipulating politics will come to a devastating end for those who continue to practice such atrocious game play in the dissolution of Democracy.

There will be more casualties of countries like Haiti, Afghanistan, Syria, Israel and Palestine…There will be more disruptions and political chaos between Republicans and Democrats at the cost of the American people, as well as the further division within the country which will result in casualties beyond comprehension.

The ‘New Normal’ Is No Normal…

The creation of confusion revolving around Covid-19 vaccines has created a “No Normal” resolve on what should and should not be assumed…but one should assume that those who have not been vaccinated, create the biggest risk to themselves and to others in furthering the spread of the new Delta variant…yet those who have been vaccinated may or may not be affected…

Contradictions…contradictions…contradictions!

This is the answer to the ‘New Normal.’

What is normal for you? Do you know? Your “normal” is “no normal.” We have learned…or will soon learn that we will live each day as it comes and there is “No Normal.”

Whatever presents itself in any given day will be met with whatever is necessary to meet it head on with victory as the outcome…You choose…you decide…

Do not let anyone exercise your rights in any capacity…Let your heart and your conscience be your guide. And be responsible for “your normal” whatever that may be…Just make sure that it applies to you without infringing upon the “rights and normal” of others.

Your revolution of “normal” has begun…

Choose wisely…

Your normal depends upon it….

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….

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….

This Goes Beyond Impeachment…

This Goes Beyond Impeachment…

All of the GOP must be held accountable and expelled from the Senate and the House…

Their Party needs a gutting and complete makeover… Examples must be made or we ARE a failed democracy…some countries have already come to that conclusion.

A stand must be taken…

This Goes Beyond Impeachment…

Only ten Republicans in the House on Wednesday, January 13, voted to impeach Trump…

Let us remember that the first impeachment effort only yielded one Republican Senator who voted for one article of impeachment…and voted against the other…Trump was guilty of both…  While this one senator voted for one article of impeachment, and voted against the other…he was still complicit.  He rode the fence…Fence riding constitutes a divided mind…or appeasement…It’s all or nothing…one cannot go “half-sees” on high crimes and misdemeanors…or excuse insurrection, sedition and treason.

 Addressing the ten who voted for impeachment…where have they been for the last four years?!

They were all in support of and parties to the horrific, chaotic, lie-spinning, propaganda induced Trump machine-turned-seditious-insurrectionist-terrorist-dictator-supremacist…with complete abandon…to our country…its citizens…and their political careers… Only ten had a sudden epiphany and awoke from their Trump-induced stupor?

Before you argue with someone, ask yourself, “Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of different perspective?” If not there is no point to argue. (Dick Gregory)

For Republicans…there is and was no point to argue…but to act upon the obvious…They refused…and many still refuse and have totally embraced and bought into the lies as their reality.  What does that say about their mental state of minds?

Truth…and impeachment will unify Americans who expect integrity, honesty and transparency…

The lies and loyalty to shield an insurrectionist and seditionist will only serve to further divide our nation…and invite the lawlessness and self-serving actions continually practiced by the GOP and their defeated leader…by others who may feel so emboldened to do so.

This Goes Beyond Impeachment…

It is time for Reconstruction…it is time for the creation of a new party or parties…that represent integrity, truth, honor, the country, its citizens and equality…out of the ashes of the GOP…

The Democratic Party must do a better job at defending our country, its citizens and the principles and values they share with the American people who believe in and love America, by strengthening their party and teaching its wet-behind-the ears, young, progressive members that experience can blend with progressive change by working together to create a blended, changing party by implementing new policies with aged wisdom and season… For Democrats…the time has arrived…make it count.

The redefining of America is under the eye of scrutiny from every nation around the globe…This moment will determine America’s resilience to come back from the blow of domestic terrorists of her own making…

The seeds of racism and racial divide planted with the inception of slavery continuing to bear strange fruit in blue uniforms…and white privilege…

Economic disparities creating divides that are deepening and changing the meaning of the “American family”…

Homelessness…increasing poverty…a dismissed virus that exploded…and shined a spotlight on those left behind in healthcare…

This Goes Beyond Impeachment…

The irony of it all is a failure…inciting and manipulating a nation’s flaws…to destroy it.

It goes… beyond… rational comprehension…..
