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…..

They Are Here….They…Have Always Been Here…

They are here…They…Have Always Been Here…

There is no need to worry about terrorists infiltrating our country…They are already here.

A terrorist is a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in pursuit of political aims…

There is a group operating in full view… in Washington, D.C….

They have factions operating in every State in the Union…

They are crushing voting rights with lies and deceptions to promote and boost elections in their favor…

They are pushing lies and propaganda to keep their supporters in a stupor of which there seems to be no return…

They are taking the country backwards in Civil and Human Rights…

Promoting Racism…Divisiveness…Insurrection…Sedition…Lies…Lies…and more Lies…

You know them better as the GOP…Republicans…They are the Terrorists…They are traitors to their constituents…leading them to slaughter…then pulling them back from the brink when they need their voting power…and they toss them under the bus after securing what they need, and say it’s coming from the other side of the aisle….when they refuse to participate in bipartisan politics….Look closely…They are the Terrorists…They are the GOP.

They have fully demonstrated that they come first…Not Country…Not their supporters…just themselves…everything else is just “window dressing” to veil their wrestle for complete control of our nation…and run it into the ground…

“America First” is just another Republican ploy…pushed by Trump and the GOP to dismantle democracy…and invoke their separatist agenda…

“America First,” is America being united and moving forward together as one unit…

“America First” isn’t holding the American people hostage by not supporting legislation that will better the quality of life for all Americans…

“America First” is respecting the Constitution and upholding the ideals of America…not destroying them systematically…and holding “Freedom” in chains with rhetoric and lies arresting whatever progress has been made to move our country into the present while building a future for generations to come…

“America First” is ridding our country of those who would seek to destroy it…such as terrorists…acting under the guise of the GOP…the Republican Party….

Stop sleeping with the enemy…

It’s time to wake up…

Clean up…

And take out the garbage…

Remove the terrorists and bring back the Party of Lincoln…

Or say goodbye…

To America.

America isn’t a bargaining chip…neither are its people.

Political Terrorism must be defeated and put to rest…

America…First…

Not Republicans who put themselves first….

Time to clean the House….

The Republicans On The Hill…Must Go…

It is time to realize that the present Republicans on the Hill are doing nothing more than condemning those who put them there to hard times and continued Republican propaganda.

It is clearly an affront to people everywhere to constantly listen to their unfounded rhetoric against Democrats, or “The Left” or Progressives…It isn’t a crime to help Americans get back on their feet during this pandemic…it isn’t a crime trying to bring back the principles and values so corrupted by those of the Republican Party; that uphold democracy and the ideals of America…to be enjoyed by every American citizen!

Stonewalling in the Senate and the House by Republicans is against everything that America stands for… Putting the American people in the midst of their “war” on those on the other side of the aisle is unconstitutional and a tactic to keep our country divided and at war with each other…for no reason. How difficult must it be to just want to live? Yet, we are being pulled into the treachery and underhandedness of a Party that does not honor America or what she stands for…They have shown their hand so many times…and it is not for the benefit of this country or its people! Wake up! Stop being bamboozled into madness which is designed to rob you of your liberties and freedoms…your dreams and your comforts…and your peace.

The Republicans have placed their agenda above and beyond the people constituency that support them and cast their votes for them. Whatever integrity the Republican party once had is long, long gone…and has been for decades, and came to light for all to see, with the rise of Trump. Power is a dangerous, lethal weapon in the hands of those who are soulless, without conscience and put themselves first….as was demonstrated by the GOP in the last four years.

Our tax dollars have been going into pockets that aren’t ours for years, including politicians! Yes, your tax dollars are making other people, namely politicians, wealthy…your interest on your student loans…are making many of those politicians wealthy….yet, they don’t want to give tax breaks to the working class, because that would mean fat cats and corporations would have to start paying what they haven’t been, in taxes, for decades! These are the entities and people Republican politicians are paid to protect…not the everyday Joes and Janes who are the real supporters of this country! Wake up!!!

Stop being caught up in “divisive politics.” Stop supporting those who are using you as a smoke screen to further their agenda… you will never be invited to sit at their table unless you can be used…Stop being used…Respect yourself. Take time to really examine and see what is going on before your very eyes.

Wake up and research your politicians…

Republicans on the Hill must go.

Give yourselves and your children the gift of a better life and future…

Good people of America…Follow your hearts and your minds…Only the Truth will set you free…

We are not “Party fodder”…We are people…We are Americans…

Tell McConnell and his crew to stop stonewalling…and come to the aid of their constituency…instead of condemning them to poverty, lies and endless propaganda…it’s “UN American,” divisive and stagnating the growth and progress of America.

Time to show these archaic Republicans the door….

It Never Gets Any Easier…

Some days are better than others…

It never gets any easier…

On March 17, 2016, my mom passed away…Today is March 17, 2021…five years to the day. I spent March 16th, 2016 with my mother under the unfortunate circumstances of family members who would not let her live out her last years in peace…to her dying day.

The peaceful moments we shared together in the last years of her life…were priceless!

While I miss her terribly…and long to spend time with her…and hold telephone conversations with her…go to movie matinees with her…hear her laughter and sit down to dinner with her…I wonder if God’s timing wasn’t the best thing that happened to her…in calling her home when he did…

She left in the year of President Obama’s last term…She had the opportunity to see the first Black American family in the White House…

She was spared the blatant rise of Racism here in America against men and women of color; which would have only perpetuated the memory of her own son, my brother, a victim to police murder while visiting relatives in Louisiana in January, 1979…He was 24…unarmed…non-threatening…minding his own business…He was killed for being Black….

Mom would tell me stories about her life growing up in Oklahoma…and the racism and prejudice she endured for being Black…

Mom was spared the lawlessness and White Privilege of the Trump years…and the aftermath of collateral damage to American citizens…left to pick up the pieces of their shattered and broken dreams…and lives…forever altered by a pandemic denied and ignored by Trump and his Trumpist GOP constituency, spinning out of control lies… while fueling divisive propaganda that left American Democracy hanging by a thread, accented by an insurrection which resulted in lives lost, and the Capitol Building being desecrated…

Mom was 83 years when she made her passage to Glory…Had she stayed, she would have been coming upon 89 years…She may not have survived this pandemic with her underlying health issues…Blessings come in many disguises…even if we may not see them that way.

There are days when I awake and think, “I wish I could talk to mom about this…”

I miss her wisdom…her unsolicited advice and opinions…which always seem to be right on time…when you wish they weren’t! I miss our talks…I miss her cooking…I miss all the church socials she would buy me tickets to attend…without asking if I had any plans for those days…of course, I attended with her… I miss the way she extended her love to everyone without question…she always wanted people to be happy and enjoy themselves…I miss how she went out of her way to take care of others…without expectation of anything in return… I miss her smile…her tenderness…her love…

March 17th will always be more than Saint Patrick’s Day to me…

The Luck of the Irish brings home the life and love of my mom…in recognition of a life which will be forever celebrated…in grand old Irish style…and with grand memories in my heart…A picture book I will always have access to enter and view…

Happy celebration of life, mom…

If your mom is still with you in life…show her some love and appreciation…Every moment of every day…

One day her “celebration of life” will be on your doorstep…

Make every second count!

Make love count…

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all….

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….

Spiritual Food…What Is Your Fuel?

Spiritual Food…

What fuels your spirit?

What is your breakfast…lunch…and dinner of spirit?

What fuel or food do you take in which feeds your spirit?

We know what fuels the body…

We know we must eat to live…not live to eat…yet so many of us live to eat.

We are like kids in a candy store!  The “foodies” among us are generally gourmets in our own right…and we live to eat…despite the fact that what sends our taste buds to the moon we delight in the journey to the point of overdoing it in consumption because it tastes so good!  We know we shouldn’t…we know that for some of us our weight will “wear” what we eat…and for some of us we may suffer health issues…however, that piece of chocolate cake, or that extra helping of fries gives us that ”devil-may-care” attitude and we convince ourselves that we’ll deal with the physical consequences of our gastronomic indulgences…later.

So what consequences result in regards to spiritually overindulging in what we “feed” our spirits?

The greatest examples of spiritual consumption of fuels and foods that work contrary to the spirit is what we’ve witnessed in the last four years in the form of Trump…his GOP…his supporters…

They chose to feed their spirits Lies instead of Truth…

Hatred… instead of Love…

Violence… instead of Peace…

Suppression… instead of Freedom…

Division… instead of Unity…

Cruelty… instead of Compassion…

Selfishness… instead of Humanitarianism…

Anger… instead of Levelheadedness…

Delusion… instead of Reality…

Absolute Power… instead of Democracy…

Eventually, the continual ingesting of these foods and fuels to the spirit will result in the demise of the spirit… Nothing good can ever emerge from evil… and only good…can deliver from evil….

Should we find ourselves walking down the path of evil…by feeding our spirits with foods and fuels that are not in sync with nourishing, lifting and enlightening our spirits to the highest level of humility, humanity…and love…we must step back and observe what is going on around us…and within us…and ask, “Am I contributing to my highest good which connects to all those around me…including the well-being of the planet? Or am I connecting with the darkest abominations of my spirit…and casting those monstrosities upon the world in destruction of humanity and the planet?”

Observe the chaos in our country and the world…take note of the “plagues” in the form of a mutating virus which gives minuscule signs of hope…only to take away that hope in delivering perhaps more devastation upon humanity…because there are those who choose to feed their spirits rebellion and defiance…rather than comply to social distancing and mask wearing to save themselves…and their fellow humans…

Look at the changing weather patterns due to the mistreatment of our planet through the quest for material gain in destroying the environment…and our atmosphere…. by drilling and sucking the life out of the planet…and releasing gases into the air that we breathe…and eating the foods and fueling the mind with denial…and “natural occurrences” rhetoric that takes place every 100 years or so…

After centuries and decades of ingesting and releasing spiritual pollutants…we are witnessing the results.

We must change what we feed and how we fuel our spirits…

Those of us who understand and are working on maintaining our diets of spiritual intake with positive and enlightening energies must continue to forge forward in our practices… We must encourage those who are working to get on and stay on the path of nourishing their spirits and the spirits of others with “good and healthy” foods and fuels…and increase in number and voice to counteract those who choose to continue to overindulge in satiating their bottomless, spiritual appetites for corruptible and egregious foods and fuels.

We will prevail if we stay the course…beginning with addressing the spiritual fallout that has left our country in a state of disarray and chaos…

Compromise only leads to eventual backsliding and succumbing to temptation…

Lead us not into temptation…

Take our daily bread…

Deliver us from evil…

By the way of the Spirit…

Manna from Heaven…

And our spiritual food and fuel…

Of Truth…..

We cannot afford to wait until later…

We cannot put off tomorrow…what can be done today…right now…

Every moment that goes by…

Our spirits hunger…

There are no substitutions…

Take in what is good…

And feed your spirit.

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 Truth Is Evident…

This Truth Is Evident…

The Republican Party…Must GO!

In its present state, it is a Party of Insurrectionists…Sedition…Treason…Traitors…Sociopaths…Pathological Liars…Conspiracy Propagandists…Self-Anointed Elitists…Bullies…Cowards…Political Chameleons…Loyalists to their own self-gain…and Power Extremists.

They do not serve allegiance to the Republic…or the people they took oaths to serve…They are self-serving and devoid of honor, truth and integrity.  This truth is evident…and truth is not always kind…

They are the putrefaction of white supremacy and white privilege…a truth that is not kind…

Trump is not gone as long as the present Party of GOP loyalists are allowed to move forward…as if the last four years of their enabling of a dictator and his demonic rise in the Office of the President of the United States… never took place…as if the insurrection at the Nation’s Capital Building on January 6, 2021, never took place…

As long as the GOP continues to recite their mantra, that “Trump is out of office now” while planting divisive seeds that another impeachment trial would sow further division, because the country needs to heal…our democracy is still in danger…

Healing will not take place if accountability is swept under the rug… and “division” of a different sort will surely take place…a division that will destroy democracy and America…

This present rhetoric from the GOP is merely a diversion to steer the people who believe in this country and what it is meant to stand for away from supporting the second impeachment trial… They want to accomplish this in order to ensure that Trump’s supporters remain intact to bolster their thirst and continued quest for power in their votes, luring them to believe that Trump will make a run for the Presidency in 2024… With the second impeachment trial, and a conviction, Trump will be barred from running for any office… ever again. 

This Truth Is Evident….

Accountability must be served on behalf of the American people… Salvation and preservation of our Democracy hangs in the balance….

This Truth Is Evident…

We cannot afford to let this moment pass without retribution…the price our country and every American will pay…will permanently divide us…and destroy us.

This Truth Is Evident…

If we believe in a free country…in a free world…we must support the safeguards of our democracy…and put them to test…and show the world that we stand on what we believe in…and what we are going to do to defend it…within our country…as well as outside of our country.

This Truth Is Evident…

And it is soberly clear…America’s credibility stands on her “Accountability.”

Is there a “backbone” to American democracy?

What is the Constitution? If it is not the document of our democracy, what is it?

While it is not perfect…and it needs to be amended to service the continuing change and growth to accommodate centuries of America’s ever-evolving tapestry…our Constitution calls for “Accountability.”

Conquering our weaknesses as a country…is our strength as a nation.  Our nation’s longevity stands on the fine line of overcoming our weaknesses by directing our strength to enforce the truth of our democracy: Defiance demands and delivers accountability…to anyone who challenges its sovereignty….

This Truth Is Evident…

Usurping the Constitution… infringes the will of the people.

Abuse of power must be met with shutting down that power…and severing any and all avenues to that power ever occurring again.  Impeachment of Trump is that accountability…without any shadow of a doubt.

Lincoln and real Republicans weep at the destruction of their party by their own hand and despicable actions…Give them a reality check: Treason will not be tolerated on any level…

This Truth… Is Evident….
