THE BIRTH OF A NEW AMERICA

A lie unrefuted becomes the truth. Racial rhetoric unrefuted becomes accepted. Silence enables. (6)

Can someone explain to me how we got here in four months?  From March to July it seems that everything that could go wrong has gone wrong.  The Coronavirus was supposed to have been something small and insignificant, yet we’re now in July and have lost 130 thousand Americans and counting.   The economy is in shambles, unemployment is at an all-time high.   Racial tension is at a Civil-War high, BLM Movement vs Systemic Racism, and White supremacy is on display everywhere.   Four years ago a famous candidate asked, “What in the hell do you have to lose,” that candidate is now the President,

It really doesn’t matter which Political Party you represent,  I think it’s safe to say, we’re in a mess.   When we find ourselves fighting over whether we should or shouldn’t wear a face Mask, things are pretty bad.   Who would have thought that an American President would be the Drum Major over such a silly fight when he is well aware of the dangers of not wearing a mask.

“I can’t breathe” another year like this could be catastrophic to my health.  It seems like I’ve been holding my breath these past few months, apprehensive of what may happen next.

Facts are,  Black Americans have been living with that feeling for years.  Professor Eddie Glaude Jr. talks about, The Country That Refused To Change.   In it, he says, “America’s betrayal of the civil rights movement gave way to urban explosions across the country, declarations of Black Power and interminable debates about the slogan’s meaning”.   Meanwhile, Ronald Reagan was giving White Americans justification of their history, their sense of innocence, according to James Baldwin.   It’s taken us a long time and a long walk to finally hit close to home.

I have some good news!  Whatever happens next, I have faith that it’ll be better than what has already happened.  We can’t get any darker than where we’ve been.

Symbolically speaking, America has been pregnant far too long, and now the pain has become excruciating,   We all must help deliver THE BIRTH OF A NEW AMERICA.  If we do it right, we stand a chance to deliver justice and equality, the understanding that all Black Lives Matter, and more.  We can eradicate systemic racism and White privilege, create a new song we all can sing and be proud of.   Imagine for the first time all Americans can truly stand proudly and say, “I’m glad to be an American.”

The future is near and 2021 and beyond can be the very best in America.  However, if we refuse to change and continue to hold on to the stupidity, we will never experience that bright blue future.   Why gamble the future, when we already know what the past has brought us, phrases such as  “for Whites only” can truly stay in America’s previous chapters.

There have been so many wonderful words written and spoken about America, THE LAND OF THE FREE AND BRAVE.  July fourth is considered INDEPENDECE DAY.  The worst thing about all this wonderfulness is that it wasn’t true for Black Americans.   The History, the Songs, the Poems, Mottos, Flags and all was written for one race only, Black Americans weren’t considered.   So while White Politicians love to quote Freddrick Douglas and Dr. King, they never serve them nor their people.   Black Americans were forced to believe in a History of lies which is why we’re in this mess today.

THE BIRTH OF A NEW AMERICA will have some growing pains, but I am hopeful.   I believe we are a people of perseverance, faith, and courage.   Understanding that everything must be put on the table if we are to grow honesty must be priority.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that”  “Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase”  “Only darkness can see the stars”  “No one really knows why they are alive until they know what they’d die for”  Our lives begins to end the day we become silent about the things that matter”

If you believe as I do that we are a people of perseverance, faith, and courage then allow that belief to transform into action and vote, donate, sign petitions, educate yourself and protest so that each step…can be a step into THE BIRTH OF A NEW AMERICA.

…Then, we can celebrate OUR GREAT COUNTRY…

THE BEGINNING of THE END

g

 

America is experiencing a rebirth, the toothpaste is out of the tube and there is no way it’s going back in.  Young White Americans are more than angry, they are proud to help Black Americans achieve some sense of equal justice under the law or by any means necessary.

Changes are happening quick and fast all over America.  Confederate  Monuments, statues, and Rebel Flags are all being torn down by force and taken down anywhere found.   In the beginning, when these symbols were placed, they represented White Supremacy and was placed to remind Black Americans to stay in their place.   Imagine being Black in America,  having to accept all of that garbage then having to learn how to survive, live, and thrive in a country that hates you.   Those Monuments and Rebel Flag were created and placed with such reverence by the people it represented.  The problem was and is, White Americans wanted Black Americans to feel reverential towards those same symbols as they did.   They were clueless of our Smothered anger, not knowing one day it would explode.   How could White Americans be so arrogant, so blatantly ignorant not to understand the hurt and pain they’ve caused.   Still today, some are asking us to respect those confederate symbols and embrace a history that was never honorable to us.   It’s incomprehensible how they were so insensitive to Black Americans’ feelings   Perhaps because “We Wear The Mask”  as Maya Angelou explained.  https://youtu.be/_HLol9InMlc  (excerpt)

We wear the mask that grins and lies.
It shades our cheeks and hides our eyes.
This debt we pay to human guile
With torn and bleeding hearts…
We smile and mouth the myriad subtleties.
Why should the world think otherwise
In counting all our tears and sighs.
Nay let them only see us while
We wear the mask.

They laugh to conceal their crying,
They shuffle through their dreams
They stepped ’n fetched a country
And wrote the blues in screams.
I understand their meaning,
It could an did derive
From living on the edge of death
They kept my race alive
By wearing the mask! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

 Dr. King and Black Americans would march and sang, “We Shall Over-Come SomeDay”.  Well, it appears that day has come, this is THE BEGINNING of THE END?

I believe most Americans understand how we got to this point in our country,  few of us know where and how it all will end.

There is a growing number of Republicans embarrassed by and unhappy with Trump over his racist rhetoric and his mishandling of the Coronavirus.  COVID-19 is on a rise, now killing over a hundred twenty thousand as I write.  Protesters are angry and are still marching in the streets against systemic racism.  Meanwhile, it feels like we’re in a free fall,  Trump appears to be inadequate, incompetent, and unwilling to understand.   Just last week he once again demonstrated how insensitive and ignorant he is of others. Trump planned a campaign rally on June 19 in Tulsa.  Ignorant as a citizen is excusable, for a President it is inexcusable and unacceptable.   Although his administration changed the date to the following day, their point was made loud and clear, Dog whistle would be an understatement.   These folks are clueless as to the pulse of Americans.  They boasted and expected more than 19,000 inside the Arena and over 20,000 outside.   The irony is their expectation fell far short, only 6200 attended the Campaign rally.  Three years ago that kind of Political Dog-Whistle would have given them their expectation, maybe even more.   Today it appears America is experiencing a new era,  THE BEGINNING of THE END.

TRUMP walk of defeat

Black Lives Matter and young White Americans are demanding and making changes even as I write.   Fox News would have one believe that they are only being destructive and pulling down Confederate Monuments.   Friends, more than Monuments are coming down, major corporations are making changes with apologies attached to those changes.  From Chic-fil-A, Starbucks to the NFL many companies realize they must change to fit in this new BEGINNING of America.   As BLM and Young White Americans confront and force America to finally strive to live all the promises that were made years ago, we understand this new BEGINNING is uncomfortable, dealing with Racism is uncomfortable.   Remember,  this uncomfortableness that we’re now experiencing is nowhere near THE TRIBULATION OF BEING BLACK IN AMERICA  24/7.   Everybody knows that racism has always been the ghost in the room.   Dealing with this painful past will not be easy, I suspect it will be the most difficult thing we as a people and Nation ever had to do.

Is White privilege racism?  Knowing all the flaws we now know about Donald Trump if he was a Black man, would he be President?

We all know Politics is a dirty game, and one of the dirtiest games played is to have one Race put down their own race.  To do this, they would get paid then they are given talking points (Plantation, Victimhood, Free-Thinker…etc) and manipulative statistics,  all to persuade voters to vote their way.   Sadly, some Black Americans are doing this to their race, “For The Love Of Money”

“Some people got to have it,  some people really need it,  do thang bad thangs with it, people will steal from their mother,  people will rob their own Brother”

Hopefully today is THE BEGINNING of a better America for all Americans and the END of an America that was great only to some Americans.

I’m cautiously optimistic about where this road will end, already it’s better than it was yesterday, and hopefully, tomorrow will be THE BEGINNING of THE END!   Realistically speaking we’re living in the moment.  Extreme emotions, high anxiety, Young and Restless searching for direction, where do we go from here.  Is this what Democracy looks like?  Or is this our pathway to a More Perfect Union?  We’ve been thinking a long time about this and yet so many questions are still unanswered.  This one thing I do know that if America is ever going to be that Country where all men are created equal it must reckon with its past to Black Americans and to all the other people of color it deprived.  Otherwise, this Movement would have been nothing more than a moment of symbolism.  I hope and pray it’s a lot more than that,  I hope it is THE BEGINNING of THE END.

WHITE AMERICANS ARE ANGRY TOO, BLM!

9966672_web1_BLMb41517-4-1200x801

THE TRIBULATION OF BEING BLACK IN AMERICA was a reminder to all Americans why they are angry.  ANGRY! about Slavery, Jim crow, injustice, systemic racism, and all the lies on top of lies, broken promises, and yes, Police brutality.

TODAY, Americans are tired of the people in charge ignoring Black Americans’ concerns/ issues, economics, schooling, equality, justice, and more.   This anger has been brewing since the beating of Rodney King, 1991 (https://youtu.be/sdktDOeG2VI ) the officers were acquittal a year later.  I don’t know if the acquittal, in this case, emboldens policemen to treat Black Americans as they do, or was it the fact that they got caught and seen by many White Americans doing what Black folks had been complaining about for years.

While Black Americans were getting brutally beaten and killed by Policemen and by other Whites folks, White Americans’ anger was slowly burning, however, their moral indignation kept getting smothered by professional politicians.   Meanwhile, Religious leaders were quiet, leaving others to speak on God’s behalf.  “We must practice forgiveness, be patient, and appreciate how far we’ve come”  After all, there were Black Entertainment Shows, many in sports, and in government.   Sophisticated Politicians and Political Pundits were extremely sinister in their dealings, so much so, that they even hijacked those accomplishments, to create numbness in the hearts and souls of White Americans’ original emotions, yet again.

“You can fool some of the people some of the time, but, you can’t fool all of the people all of the time”

AFTER the death of many Black Americans killed by Policemen, and decades of lies from the White establishment,  White Americans have grown angry from being fooled, manipulated, and lied to.  Their ANGER is HOT and real, much like Black Americans. WHITE AMERICANS ARE ANGRY TOO and are now ready to burn it all down and start over again.

Protests are now happening all over the world and riot is the voice and sound of pinned up anger.

Admittedly, in 2016 with help from Donald Trump, they used Colin Kaepernick taking a knee position as being disrespectful to the flag and lack of patriotism https://youtu.be/bBdoDOXMWkg   Trump knew Kaepernick was protesting against unjust Police brutality being done to Black Americans.  Once again they were successful in kidnapping White Americans’ moral indignation.  Today, NFL football commissioner Goodell condemns racism, admits NFL was wrong for not listening earlier.

I think seeing the back to back killings of two Black men (first Admaud Abrey, then George Floyd) was too much to explain away.   Watching Ahmaud Abrey killing angered us, but then to watch another Black man (George Floyd) getting killed by a Policeman in an unforgivable fashion.  Eight minutes and forty-six seconds with a knee on his neck to death.  ANGER is an understatement, the rage is more like a nuclear missile has been being thrown.  WHITE AMERICANS ARE ANGRY TOO!

If Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, and others think they can run the same ole playbook of  US vs THEM, which was once successful, it will not work in 2020.

Americans have a pretty good idea who Donald Trump is, however, others are already doing what they’ve done before, which is, persuade you with lies, change the narrative, and create another image.  They are asking White Americans again, not to believe what they already morally believe in their heart.  Maybe because they believe Jim Crow is still left somewhere inside you, or maybe, they don’t believe the movement we all see, is real.

This time around Whites and other Americans will not be so easily influenced by lies, deceptions, and phony patriotism.   Despite the fact that Fox News continues to show the same footage of looting day after day, night after night isn’t effective enough to scare White Americans away from protesting.  In fact, WHITE AMERICANS ARE ANGRY TOO.  People all over the world are coming together to say BLACK LIVES MATTER!

Trump just doesn’t get it, WHITE AMERICANS ARE ANGRY TOO

“Donald Trump is the first President in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people–does not even pretend to try.  Instead, he tries to divide us,” said  James Mattis, Frm.Sec, of Defense.  I couldn’t agree more.

It’s time to make that change:

THE TRIBULATION OF BEING BLACK IN AMERICA

 

Some Of Trump's Accusers (3)

It is abundantly clear more than ever before, that we as a nation and as a race have never gotten over slavery.  Apparently, Slave owners saw their helpers as Slaves, nonhuman, property to use as pleased, abuse as pleased, whenever and however, as, pleased.

According to the Washington Post, slavery actually dates a full century before 1619. Slavery in Florida reveals how a multinational slave trade built on personal greed and white supremacy forced Africans and African Americans to build North American wealth in which they would not be able to share. Then, adding insult to injury, these early black slaves were erased from the standard narrative of American history.

From the early writings of Freddrick Douglas, W.E.B. DuBois to more recent Black American historians such as Dr. Henry Louis Gates Jr.,  Dr.Mack H.Jones, and many other African American historians all agree that Slavery was and is America’s greatest sin.  Not only was Slavery morally wrong,  more importantly, but it was also economically devastating to the Slaves.

Slavery was used to create the economic engine in America (especially in the South) while White Americans were getting rich yet prevented Slaves from any of its profits.  Slaves did more than just work in the Cottonfield all day without pay- they experienced a life that was pure terrorism being vicious and animalistic raped, cruel Executions – Lynching, Burning… Most executions were done by hanging.  Mutilation – Amputation, Genital Torture, Castration… Sexual Assault. A certain group of enslaved women was labeled “Jezebels” by their owners.  Torture Instruments. The torture instruments come in different forms and severity… living such a life was terrifying and White Americans were the terrorist.  This is only the beginning of, “THE TRIBULATION OF BEING BLACK IN AMERICA”

Black Americans cannot escape the painful history while White Americans cannot separate themselves from their awful past.  These four hundred years of history have impacted all of our lives chaotically as well as dramatically.   Unfortunately, many White Americans have chosen to ignore it,  while on the other hand, most Black Americans passionately feel like a volcano getting ready to erupt.  From the murder of Emmett Till to the death of four little Black girls killed while at a church in Birmingham, to the killing of Trayvon Martin and Eric Garner, (“I can’t breathe”) to the killing of Ahmaud Arbery and now George Floyd (who cried out to his deceased Mother and repeatedly told the officer, I can’t breathe” as the officer kept his knee on his neck until he died).

safe_image (1)

Too many Black Americans have been killed and are getting killed without any knowledge by the public.  These painful images are too many, and oftentimes, too painful to talk about- This is, “THE TRIBULATION OF BEING BLACK IN AMERICA”.

Through all the struggles and pain, it appears that many young White Americans are not only listening and watching, but they are also participating in standing up against systemic racism, and the acts of violence perpetrated upon Blacks.  I don’t believe the Fox News watchers or Trump’s supporters expected to see and experience this transition.

I cannot pretend to assert any facts about why this killing of George Floyd created the scenes in which we are now watching daily.  It’s a phenomenon and it is happening.  I can only speculate why it is happening.  Perhaps they are attracted to our rich culture, music, dance, real heroes, and our struggle to survive in a system whereby they are intimately aware of the cards being stacked against us.  Conservative White Americans are now waking up to a new dichotomy, their offspring.

Could it be, THE TRIBULATION OF BEING BLACK IN AMERICA has become the transformative catalyst of the change we hoped for?

Perhaps, it’s the beginning of a long road yet to travel.  Many Black Americans are still disproportionately discriminated against in housing, schooling, community, job, law enforcement…etc, you name it we’ve experienced it.

This, my friend, is our life experiences, this is, ” THE TRIBULATION OF BEING BLACK IN AMERICA”

2Pac, Maya Angelou and James Weldon Johnson left us with powerful words of encouragement:

Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack
in the concrete?  The crack of Slavery, the concrete of Jim Crow, But like air, I’ll rise

You may kill me with your hatefulness, You may write me down in history with your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I’ll rise

Remember, that the race is not given to the swift but to those that endure to the end. Then we can join hand and, Lift every voice

Lift every voice and sing
Till earth and heaven ring,
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the listening skies,
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us,
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun
Let us march on till victory is won.  Stony the road we trod, Bitter the chastening rod.
But like air and dust

Still, we rise

even from

IT’S EVEN WORST

One of the saddest news reports ever to be reported will be the mishandling of the Coronavirus in the beginning stage.  There is no escaping the fact that more than 100,000 Americans will die from this virus because we failed to act promptly and responsibly.  No hanging banners in the White House Rose Garden,  no tv news channel, or our favorite radio host is capable of substituting for giving us a moment of silence to reflect on all the Americans we lost, with a fake celebration of victory.

 

 

Americans are Dying
AMERICANS ARE DYING
As America prepares to reopen, take a long and peculiar look at the person you know who is returning to work,  knowing there is still a real deadly virus out there without a cure.   Take a long look at them until they feel uncomfortable.  Look long until their face is permanently inside you, a long look until you can remember them if they should die so that you can see them as if they were still alive.
Add a heading (89)
My Favorite, DEMOCRACY BROKEN
Today, many of us are wondering what do we, how do we, where do we start to bring back some sense of sanity?  Is the divide too wide?   Is it even possible to put this damn Genie back in the bottle?

“If Right Doesn’t Matter,

If Right doesn’t matter

It doesn’t matter how good the Constitution is

It doesn’t matter how brilliant the Framers were

It doesn’t matter how good or bad the advocacy of this Trial is

Doesn’t matter how well written the Oath of Impartiality

If Right doesn’t matter

We’re Lost”

Many Politicians believe Trump is an open book that anyone can read or see-through, calculated, and easily manipulated.  These characteristics may have been true of him in the early days of his presidency.  Today you will find a more angry and sinister person willing to do devilish things towards anyone he considers as his enemy.     

Trump selected Barr as his Attorney General for no good reasons, he made certain that Kavanaugh would be placed on the Supreme Court bench, but more importantly, Trump had learned and understood the Power of being President.  Most active Republican Congressmen/women and  Senators understand that power as well, which is why they are too afraid to cross him.  

Admittedly, Trump may come across as a spoiled brat when he doesn’t get his way publicly.   But beneath his childish outbursts is a veil of premeditated destruction to all his enemies.  This side of him is frightening even to his closest friends and terrifying to his enemies.   Ask Michael Cohen (Trump’s formal attorney) who Trump is, he will tell you…the half has never been told, it’s even worse…

Trump is loaded with more power now in his presidency than ever before, at the same time, his daily News conferences have been an utter disaster and failure.  So much so, that he discontinued them for a short while.  But, on May 11, Trump held a press conference that would showcase all the wonderful things he believes his administration has done and is doing in reference to the COVID-19 virus.  Trump had hanging banners all around as if he was trying to convince Americans to believe his banners.   Unfortunately, Trump ended his News Conference abruptly creating more of a fuss about his behavior instead of his hanging banners touting his success.  Trump’s frustration has once again displayed its ugliness in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Trump realizes he’s the most powerful person in the room and yet his inability to convince the American people has to be upsetting.  According to the Pew Research Center, 65% of Americans believe Trump was too slow in the initial response to the Coronavirus threat. 

The New York Times reported March 7, Trump saying anyone who wants a Coronavirus test can have one and on May 11 during his News Conference he said it again.  The truth is a lot more complicated than presented, and no, anyone who wants a Coronavirus test cannot have one. 

It appears President Obama is living rent-free in Trump’s head and this is where the plot thickens for a man like Trump, who has unlimited power. 

During the Russian investigation, Trump hand-picked someone who could protect him from all his woes.  Maya Angelou, said it best, “when someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time”  Before Barr was nominated as Trump’s attorney general, he wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post praising Trump for firing FBI Director James Comey May 2017.  Less than a year later he criticized Mueller’s Russian Probe.  One had to wonder was he auditioning for the attorney general position?  One thing that was clear and certain, Trump had found what he had been hoping for but more importantly, what he needed.  On Feb.14 2019 Barr was confirmed by a 54-45 near party-line vote.  William Barr is intelligent and crafty, he knows how to use the dark cracks of justice in the courtroom.  He understands the complexity of turning over each and every leaf, trimming every corner or thread against or for his client.  Barr knows how to present a case to his staff of attorneys in such a manner that they will be salivating to carry out whatever destructible act he orders.  In March 2019 Barr concluded that the evidence in the Russian investigation did not determine that Trump had committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.  The half has never been told, it’s even worse…

Remember Rudy Giuliani’s memorable statement, Truth isn’t Truth?  By their standard destroying one’s opponent with lies can be considered as truth, their truth.  Don’t be shocked about how low Trump and Giuliani will go, we saw some of that in his News Conference where he accused former President Obama of committing crimes worst than watergate.  When asked by a reporter what was the crime, he was unable to give the reporter an answer.  This is only the beginning of the tools taken from their slime box that he and his comrades will use against his opponent.  The Ukrainian investigation may be out of the news cycle, but Rudy and others are still actively creating a narrative they hope will be compelling to American voters.  

With the help of Barr, Trump got by the Russian probe;  although he was impeached by The House Of Congress, Trump was not removed because of a majority control Senate Republicans.   Today Trump is displaying a feeling of invincibility.  Which is why he is the most dangerous man in the world…and that’s not all…the half has never been told, it’s even worse… 

One of the saddest news reports ever to be reported will be the mishandling of the Coronavirus in the beginning stage.  There is no escaping the fact that more than 100,000 Americans will die from this virus because we failed to act promptly and responsibly.  No hanging banners in the White House Rose Garden,  no tv news channel, or our favorite radio host is capable of substituting for giving us a moment of silence to reflect on all the Americans we lost, with a fake celebration of victory.

With all of these villains surrounding and in the White House, maybe someday someone will be able to explain why Ahmaud Arbery was gun down senselessly while jogging (Feb.23,2020)  by a father and son.  Trump said he was disturbed by what he saw while at the same time hinting that there may be other footage he has not seen.  He concluded by saying he will have his department look into this case.  The truth of the matter is that there are many people of color that are being gunned down daily all over America in senseless acts that are never reported leaving parents, loved ones, and communities feeling helpless and hopeless, which is why I concluded..the half has never been told, it’s even worse.

AMERICANS ARE DYING

AMERICANS ARE DYING

Americans are Dying

One of the most painful and difficult things in life is having to lose someone you know, a neighbor, or even worse a family member or someone you love.  Death is the final chapter and it hurts.  The hurt is even more painful when we are robbed from having that last ever so special moment to say good-bye (because of COVID-19).  During this unusual unique time in America and elsewhere there are many unanswered questions and emotions are everywhere.   Americans are Dying, People are Dying!

People with Money and Power are the decision-makers who created the narrative, “It’s time to reopen” then they manipulated the press to carry out their message.

As predicted Trump’s foot soldiers were more than willing to carry what they believe are his concerns.   Trump had expected to run on a strong economy but the COVID-19 robbed him of this.  As reported, Trump needs this economy as much as the Rich and Powerful does.   To reopen without a vaccine or cure for this Virus was a risky move but one in which they thought was necessary.   Trump and his Pals were astonished and amused by his supporters, how they made dying to reopen this economy (knowing this virus was deadly) somehow patriotic.  They took their misguided passion to the streets marching and protesting even blocking Health Care facilities, preventing people who needed help, and Health Care providers from giving help to those that needed it.  Perhaps, years later, this will probably sound stupid, crazy, and ridiculous to the reader, nonetheless, it did happen.

As an American, the picture couldn’t be more clearer between, “The Haves and The Have Nots”.

The majority of us fall into the “Have Nots”… frontline workers, Health Care Providers, and others who are called to simply deal with the general public.  We are the Americans who are Dying.

Could this have been preventable, when did Trump find out and what did he do?

I understand we’re all in this together now, but it’s still important for me to know if we could have done something that would have changed what we are now experiencing.  There is a mountain of evidence that Trump knew and did nothing.   If this is true it is neither political nor partisan, but factual.   Truth and facts are synonymous, it can be your judge or your jury.  Today Trump is doing everything he can to get this virus under control.  Most Governors have openly complimented him for his administration’s swift actions to their needs.  However, we’re still left with many questions, when did he know and what did he do?

If insults were a cure, 60,000 Americans would still be alive, schools would be opened and Sports would be thriving.  Trump is defensive because he didn’t take the necessary actions to protect us. We all know Trump by now, he would have boastfully bragged about how he made the NSC (National Security Council) the biggest and best ever.  However, according to ABC News,  Trump and his administration in 2018 decided to dismantle the NSC.  Public health and national security experts shake their heads when Trump says the Coronavirus “came out of nowhere and blindsided the world.”    Today, U.S. deaths from COVID-19 passed 60,000, a figure Trump had once projected would be the upper limit.

Reopen, reopen America, let’s go back to work, translation: let’s get this economy up and moving again so I can get re-elected.  Trump is already talking about having campaign rallies of 20,000 or more.

Your life is worth more than politics, our life is worth more than this economy if you believe in the sanctity of life and hate abortion.  I ask you to join hands with the Have Nots and say no to reopening without a proven tested vaccine or cure (I understand Dr. Fauci is excited about this new drug called Remdesivir which is still under study) .  Otherwise, we all will die except the rich and powerful.  They will live to shape another generation’s ideology just as they did ours through racism, fear, and Political parties and of course Greed.  As America prepares to reopen, take a long and peculiar look at the person you know who is returning to work,  knowing there is still a real deadly virus out there without a cure.   Take a long look at them until they feel uncomfortable.  Look long until their face is permanently inside you, a long look until you can remember them if they should die so that you can see them as if they were still alive.

 It saddens me to end this blog with these three words,

Americans are Dying

*ABC News

*The Washington Post,   No infectious disease in a century has exacted as swift and merciless a toll on the United States as covid-19. With no vaccine and no cure, the pandemic has killed people in every state. The necessary isolation it imposes has robbed the bereaved of proper goodbyes and the comfort of mourning rituals. Those remembered in this continually updating series represent but some of the tens of thousands who have died. Some were well-known, and many were unsung. All added their stories, from all walks of life, to the diversity of the American experience.  (check out https://wapo.st/2yer4Xl , you will be touched)

Is Trump’s Presidency Killing Americans

Is Trump's Presidency Killing Americans

Imagine a mad scientist in the basement trying to create the most despicable and dangerous person ever created; mixing such poisonous toxins as irony to ignorance,  ignorance to arrogance,  arrogance to incompetence, and incompetence to lack of responsiveness. Then, at the end of the experiment, we take a gamble on our future and the most dangerous person created known to man is placed to be the President of the United States of America.  I cannot speak for all Americans, but I believe many of us are frightened by the Trump Presidency.

In 2018 the Trump administration fired the U.S. pandemic response team (which was never replaced in case of a pandemic outbreak). Reportedly, anything with President Obama’s name on it Trump dismantled without any review or research.  Checkout Laurie Garrett, science journalist, and health policy analyst, as she talks with Rachel Maddow about the government response structure, put in place by the Obama administration https://youtu.be/fGNFhfd3Xbo.   My question to you Americans: was that ignorant, arrogant, incompetent or deadly irresponsible?

Instantly Manifest More Money, Love & AbundanceStarting In The Next 30 Minutes...

New York Times reported,  Peter Navarro (Trump’s trade adviser) on Jan. 29 in a written memo stating, “the coronavirus crisis could cost the United States trillions of dollars and put millions of Americans at risk of illness or death.”   This was during the time Trump was downplaying the virus.  Trump was telling Americans that COVID-19 was no worst than the common cold.  Now,  Trump is desperately trying to cover-up his foolish mistake and misguided remarks.  Of course, Fox News and his base will continue to support him even unto death. Trump is hoping to trick those Americans who do not follow politics in-depth (which is most Americans) by giving daily-briefing on the COVID-19 crisis. It’s rather apparent to me that he’s hoping Truth and Facts won’t get in his way.

A once hardcore Conservative Joe Scarborough (Morning Joe) is not having it from Trump.  On a daily basis, Joe confronts Trump’s lies in the strongest way that no-others are doing.

Joe said Trump and his people look stupid when they lie and get caught.  He recommends the News outlets get real-time facts checkers whenever Trump does his daily briefing.   An uncorrected lie (in real-time is too dangerous to allow) is often confused as facts.

Rolling Stone recently released an article stating that people of color are being hit the hardest from COVID-19.  Besides Fox News and Trump’s supporters, who else is surprised by this report?   Most Americans are fully aware that those in lower social-economic standing are generally the first to get hurt in tragic situations, be it weather disasters, lack of proper education, housing, low food quality and now health. The less among us has always been the first to die whenever disaster hits.  This commentary has been resurfacing for far too long.   Almost all Americans would agree we are faced with a crisis and action must be taken.  However, when more money is proposed to improve hospitals, communities, and health it is generally voted down on party line. My fellow Americans, understanding is more than empathy, and poor people do not need nor want our sympathy.   If we are truly all in this together, let’s support all Americans to live a better life.  Isn’t it ironic how a virus as deadly as COVID-19 has made us realize that in order for us to coexist, our life is dependant upon each other?

Trump is now pushing Snake Oil Treatments like a Mad Scientist according to Daily KOS:  “Almost from the beginning, Donald Trump has been pushing the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19 despite the lack of a single random trial indicating that the drug had any net positive effect. The result of Trump’s relentless medicine show hectoring has been that doctors have issued so many off-label prescriptions that there is now a shortage of the prescription drug for those who seriously need it for treatment of malaria, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus.”  Trump continues to prove he’s capable of going lower to cover his lack-of-actions since the beginning of this virus being recognized as a pandemic.  It really doesn’t matter how often he blames President Obama or The Governors, those stubborn facts will judge him in the end.

In closing, I’m hoping you agree with me that we do not need another Mad Scientist experimenting in a basement to create another despicable person mixed with ignorance, arrogance, incompetence and totally irresponsibly. That person could possibly destroy our entire nation. This time, my fellow Americans, let’s not take that gamble.

AFTER IMPEACHMENT

Untitled design (8)

Trump was never contrite, apologetic nor humbled.  Blinded by ambition, power, and notoriety, Trump did and continues to do what a self-center, frighten bully does.  Double down on whatever the narrative is.  If Trump was a child, I believe many of us would feel sorry for him, however, Trump is a seventh-four-year-old man behaving like a corrupt criminal frighten of being exposed.  Trump’s behavior is much similar to the people Americans once describe as ignorant,  folks who double down on their feelings rather than deal with the facts.  I know it’s uncomfortable, to speak in such fashion but Trump is an uncomfortable person to digest.

In my last blog, I spoke about how broken our democracy is.  Americans need the Republican Party to awake and face their Goliath as David did.  The rest of us need our Republican Congress and Senators to stand up to Trump and to rebuke, then demonstrate what Democracy truly looks like to this President.   Too often we’ve have given far too much energy and focus on Trump.  Maybe if we spent more energy focusing on the leaders in the Republican Party we could encourage them to do something.

I believe America’s Democracy is worth asking them to risk their Political career and yes, that means facing Trump’s no-nonsense supporters.

No longer can they respectfully claim to be the Party of Lincoln while at the same time relinquishing their power to a corruptable leader.   Character still matters to me, I hope it still matters to you; to do that which is right even if it means a temporary loss.  Doing what is right even when you think others are not watching, but because it is the right thing to do.

Now to those who continue to give an incoherent explanation and support for/to Trump I hope that you are able to look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself if he represents your values.

Spiritually speaking:  Trump’s behavior and Character are totally opposite of Christ or any Spiritual Leaders that we’ve come to know (I am confused as to why The Religious Right supporters believe in him).  With all of that being said, history will not judge us by what we say (Senator Susan Collins) but by our actions.  Did we stand for Liberty and Justice or did we cave in under pressure to embrace our Party rather than our Country?

Seemingly every day, we wake up hearing about Trump breaking a new law since the Impeachment Trial.  Recently, he asked Governor Cumbo to lighten up on all those charges the State Of New York has against him, so he (Donald Trump) could do better business deals.  And now as I write

Prosecutors Quit Roger Stone Case After Justice Dept. Intervenes on Sentencing

President Trump had complained that the recommendation of seven to nine years in prison for his former adviser and longtime friend was a “miscarriage of justice.”

AFTER IMPEACHMENT it’s clear to see that this man is Out-Of-Control!

Politicians and Political pundits are critical of the Democrats Candidates, thinking they may not have what it takes to win over Trump. Oddly enough, before Impeachment, they had almost every Candidate beating Donald Trump. And now, we’re supposed to believe these very same people claiming that the Democratic Candidates are too weak to win?  Maybe these Pundits are concerned about television ratings, or maybe they’re thrilled by a horse race, at this point I’m uncertain of their motives but I can’t judge them. However, what I can state clearly is that the SOUL of  Our DEMOCRACY is at HAND, we cannot continue playing Politics as usual.   The State Of Our Union is Broken, we all must take responsibility if by grace we can put it back together.

I believe we need the Republican Party to stand up to Donald Trump, If we are to Take Our Country Back, If we are To continue DEMOCRACY, If we are to enjoy Life, Liberty and The Pursuit Of Happiness, If we are to abide by the Consitution and The Rule Of Law.  America needs Republicans to put the values of America first.  It’s been written long ago that Disruption and defeat can sometimes come from surprising places, “For it was not an enemy that reproached me, then I could have borne it, neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me, then I would have hid myself from him”    (Psalm 55:12).

DEMOCRACY BROKEN

Add a heading (89)

A songwriter once asked, “What becomes of a Broken Heart”? Americans are now asking, what becomes of a DEMOCRACY BROKEN?  What do we do when Justice fails when Guilt is Innocent and Facts are Alternative?   What do we do when the President commits a crime, covers it up,  prevents witnesses from testifying?

We are on an uncharted territory as a Nation.  Most of us grew up believing we had three branches of Government and that they were coequal in Power.  All of us grew up knowing you had witnesses in Trials.   You know DEMOCRACY is BROKEN when you have a Trial without witnesses.  Just how does one explain this, what will be the ramification from this action.  It’s amazing what Politicians will do to stay in power.  Apparently, the Republican Senators have sold their Souls to Trump in the hope to stay in power.  After all, Trump has proven that divisive rhetoric and racism win elections and now corruption and Abuse Of Power will keep you in Power.

It’s midnight in America and I’m frightened that day-light might not ever come.  We all know who Donald Trump is, but, what is most troubling to me is that he could have boastfully (and he did say I’m guilty as SIN), allowed every document to appear, allowed everyone to testify and yet those Republican Senators would have done what that did…NOTHING!   Frightening?  Hell yeah!  Secondly, we know his Propaganda Machine (Fox News and Conservative Talk Radio) is always ready and willing to support his every wish.  My Fellow Americans The State Of Our Union Is Broken.

Today, many of us are wondering what do we, how do we, where do we start to bring back some sense of sanity?  Is the divide too wide?   Is it even possible to put this damn Genie back in the bottle?

This Senate Impeachment Trial should have united Progressives, Liberals, and all Democrats to be MAD AS HELL…I know I am.

Trump’s character is unquestionably the worst we’ve seen as a President in the White House.  And to watch him get away with doing so much wrong is upsetting.  Four years ago he used Russia to smear Senator Clinton with E-Mail attack Ads.  This upcoming election he will allow/use Russia once again to smear opponent VP Biden with Bursima attack Ads.  Sadly, VP Biden may not win the nomination because of the Trump smear campaign during his Impeachment Trial.

As long as Trump is in the White House DEMOCRACY will continue to be BROKEN unless we take action.   Voting seems to be our only recourse  and remedy at this time otherwise,

“If Right Doesn’t Matter,

If Right doesn’t matter

It doesn’t matter how good the Constitution is

It doesn’t matter how brilliant the Framers were

It doesn’t matter how good or bad the advocacy of this Trial is

Doesn’t matter how well written the Oath of Impartiality

If Right doesn’t matter

 We’re Lost”

*AXIOS  Poll:  75% of Americans say, witnesses should testify at Impeachment Trial.
