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….

January 6, 2021…The Day Democracy Died…With “Greatness”…

There are always comments made about America being the “Greatest country in the world.” What is this country great for?

On January 6, 2021…came an answer.

Great is defined as “Of an extent, amount, or intensity considerably above the normal or average.”

On January 6, 2021…The Capitol of our country was stormed and desecrated…with a chilling display of “great.”

The level of violence, destruction, and disregard of life and country…was of an extent, amount and intensity, considerably above the normal or average… defiling… with complete disregard for our democracy.

Freedom of Speech is one thing….acting upon misinformation that creates insurrection and complete disrespect to a system–although imperfect–that had kept America in check…was treasonous…a death blow to Democracy…Where does that leave America?

The division between the parties…and the continuing battles to wrestle power to one side of the aisle over the other…and the continued engagement and promoting of the “Big Lie” by the “elephant clan” has destroyed Democracy…Just as Covid-19 is cleaning house against the world population…factions that took oaths to protect our country against its enemies…haven’t yet realized that they are the enemies…and they are cleaning house on the American population….with some help and assistance…from a great part of the American population!

“Unity” is nothing more than a five lettered word…without substance or meaning. Certain people are still entrenched in the “Me-Me-Me” club…and they are still in operation on The Hill….

Meanwhile…our country is going down for the third time in a grand state of confusion…from Covid-19, to party politics…the saddest part…the whole world is watching…real “greatness.”

January 6, 2021…The Day Democracy Died…with “Greatness.”

January 6, 2022…take a moment to recollect…and decide…Can we rise from the ashes?

Let the people decide…

How much do you love your country… Do you love it enough to support and give meaning to…and back “Unity?” Having and defending your rights…does not mean doing, supporting and engaging in wrong.

Revive Democracy by cleaning house on The Hill… Don’t fall victim to “Red or Blue…” Have ears to hear and eyes to see….

Guard…protect and defend…your voice…

Once you let them gain control of your voice…you will be silenced…

Your Vote…is your Voice…

Take heed…they have already initiated the Process of Silence

“We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the universe. That makes us something very special.” –Stephen Hawking

The universe…right here…right now…is America… A minor country…in an average world.

Choose to be something very special…

Look into the hearts of those you choose…that will reveal the Truth…

The truth of them…

And the truth… of you….

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….

What Unites Us…

What unites us…will always divide us…because differences of opinion will always exist where humankind is present…

Inauguration Day, January 20, 2021…President Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris…Historic firsts in many respects…

While the promise of today can lead us into a better future tomorrow…we must always remember that there is right and wrong…weak and strong…winners and losers…

Our democracy was tested…severely with the insurrection and assault on the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021…

We cannot move forward without accountability being rendered to those who incited, participated, and continue to defend this act of sedition and treason according to our Constitution.

We cannot entertain unity without restoring credibility to our democracy…in following what it deems necessary in the treatment of those who attempted to overthrow it.

Impeachment is necessary. To impose it will cause division…Not to impose it will cause division…either decision will lead to division…yet, it is unavoidable…because in doing the right thing, which is always going to be an objection by someone…no matter what…the right thing must be done in order to uphold the laws of our nation…to uphold the Constitution…

Lindsey Graham’s outrageous comment to Joe Biden,

“If you do not stand up against the impeachment of President Trump after he leaves office, you’re an incredibly weak figure in American history.”

In the eyes of many in this country and the world…Lindsey Graham, along with the majority of the Republican Party, already own that distinction.

Spineless…mindless…and damned…the GOP willingly chose their path.  They have destroyed their credibility to voice any road to unity for our country, because lies and denial still strongly influence their road to retaining a Trump supporter base, supporting the Republican Party…whatever it stands for….

While Truth is the “great redeemer”…it is also the great divider…because not everyone can handle the truth…However, in time…truth heals…and truth eventually unites…

Trying to unify a country where a defeated party urges continued ignorance of its flaws, cracks, fissures, fractures, lies, and wide divides, is further inviting attacks upon our democracy and our ability to defend it.

To those who continue to believe they know the will of the people…and what they want…stop doing it!  Our will is not your will…opinion or solution.

There are millions of Americans, regardless of their Party affiliations, who want accountability for the January 6, 2021 incident, as well as the lies and deceptions and delusions that were cast upon them by their Republican officials, and their leader, Trump.

The American people were intentionally duped the last four years…for political power and self-aggrandizement by the GOP.

Impeachment and accountability will unify and strengthen our democracy, its credibility and resiliency.

Today’s Inauguration of President Biden and Vice-President Harris was historic…and will turn the page on a former administration that countless Americans clearly would like to be erased from ever taking place…yet it cannot be done without…Accountability.

Division is inevitable…there is no way around it.  It is a necessary byproduct to healing…and Unity.

All of our obstacles can be overcome…Covid-19…our depressed and suffering economy… social justice and reform…regaining our country’s credibility and place in the world…our integrity and viability as a nation…We…are the building blocks to restoring America…

We must begin with what we truly stand for…Liberty and Justice for all comes with a high price tag…

Democracy demands accountability…

Here’s the question…

Are we willing to pay the price of truth in accountability…to attain unity?

One Nation…Under God…Indivisible…

Tests its mettle…

With… Division…

Indivisible+Division=Unity…What Unites Us…..
