Constitutional Crisis or Congressional Corruption?

Constitutional Crisis or Congressional Corruption?

Every single day, there is more nonsense coming from the Oval Office resident–proving he is totally, undeniable unfit for the position in which he holds. Every single day, GOP Congress remains silent and refuses to exercise their Constitutional oversight and rein him in. Perhaps, the real problem with Congress is–they’ve been bought and paid for by so many PACs and corporation donors to the point where they have completely forgotten their congressional oath–to uphold the Constitution, not the person in the Oval Office.

I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but it seems like our Congressional Leaders should be the examples for future generations as to how to lead. But then again, perhaps that’s the problem–Republicans don’t know how to lead, just whine and complain.
They complained about President Obama and whined about everything he did–even when they held the majority in both houses–they still whined. They whined about Hillary’s emails, Benghazi, and Uranium One and Fast and Furious and the SCOTUS seat, and Michelle’s bare arms, and Obama’s tan suit, and the daughter’s short skirts, and the Dijon mustard and everything that wasn’t a Constitutional violation.
But with trump–with the violation of the Emoluments Clause, the nepotism, the breech in disclosing–honestly–financial records, attempting to suppress and bar the media from reporting activities that are of American interest, and obstructing justice when he’s being investigated–majority leaders are silent, while a fringe (secretsocietytheorists) are infringing upon the DOJ’s office to unmask an informant–simply because trump ordered it–an abuse of power–according to the Constitution.
Remember when Republicans were supposed to be the “fiscally conservative” party? Now, they’re watching trump run rampant through tax payer dollars with minting coins that mean nothing, parading our military to appease his ego, and never curtailing his expenses–billed to the US treasury with his golf outings and other non-essentials. TAX PAYERS ARE FOOTING THE BILLS.
But then, you have those low-educated, ill-informed voters who choose to support the racist, pathological liar, in the Oval Office–who complained about the Obamas taking too many vacations–at tax payer expense–but not a peep about all the money being paid out for trump’s golf outings at his own properties.
Double-whammies–trump and his supporters (sycophants) worshiping him as their god and a complicit Congress who won’t do their job.
So are we facing a Constitutional Crisis or just seeing what Congressional Corruption looks like–up close and personal?

In Case You Missed It!

In Case You Missed It!

I’m uploading a number of videos on YouTube as part of my presidential exploration. Surprisingly, a number of people have weighed in on what I’ve said about trump–they either agreed or didn’t. A couple of people–white males–even got nasty and profane. But that’s their prerogative. I don’t respond in kind. And since I wasn’t sure if people missed what was said, I thought I’d post here–especially since I seem to be picking up so many followers from “outlook.com” Trying to figure out–why!

At any rate, here’s the link. Feel free to share or comment–knowing I won’t respond to nastiness–beneath me to do so, but I welcome open conversation about how we can fix the mess we find ourselves in with this WH administration. So, if you have 12 minutes to spare–enjoy!

 

More coming soon, but the content will be about how I see the solutions to the problems that face many.

Evangelicals Are Tired Of Living!

Evangelicals Are Tired Of Living!

Many Evangelicals have conned their congregations into believing God determined that Donald J. Trump should be president because he would usher in the second coming of Christ and they believe that establishing an embassy in Jerusalem will bring it to pass. In essence, they want the end to come based upon John’s revelation which means they’re tired of living.

When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth–Gog and Magog--and to gather them for battle. In number they are like sand on the seashore. They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever. Revelation 20:7-10 NIV

He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this and I will be their God and they will be my children. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars–they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death. Revelation 21:6-8 NIV

There is a great deal more that is revealed to John, but since I’m trying to make a point about the lie perpetuated by many church leaders, I won’t spin my wheels trying to extrapolate it. The bottom line is–since the Evangelicals believe trump is the impetus to bringing about the return of Christ–they are also acknowledging he is anti-Christ (Satan, the devil) because according to scripture, it is when Satan is loosed and most of us–Christian and non-Christian believe trump is the epitome of the anti-Christ because nothing he does–is Christ-like and certainly does not reflect his belief or willingness to do as Christ would do.

Now, many may argue my point and that is certainly their right, but I’ve never seen anyone as divisive, vile, and ego-driven as trump or his idolatrous worshipers who are filled with hateful bigotry. They are the ones who need to be concerned about the end since they will miss heaven. What they have overlooked is, there will be no “new Jerusalem” until all the old has been destroyed and at that time–there will be no need for walls or war–because the reference is to our lives in heaven.

I can’t speak for every Born-Again believer who truly conducts themselves as followers of Christ, but I can speak for myself. I am appalled at the atrocity Evangelicals have instigated by lying to their flocks. They have misled and misdirected so many people into believing the lie that many are prepared to “kill others” because of their idolatrous worship of trump. But I am not their judge, God is–the God of heaven, not the god of this world who has deceived them and is now, laughing out loud at their folly. They may not see it, yet, and may not even see it before their demise, but it will be noted in the books of history and certainly noted in the records of heaven.

The Evangelicals in the 21st Century–are the contemporary Pharisees who are not interested in all developing and maintaining a life with Christ–doing good, but in controlling what people think and do. They have been deceived and are not willing to admit their mistakes and tell people the truth. They don’t have to tell people the truth; there are many of us who continue to tell the truth–Evangelicals have lied to their congregations and are apparently, tired of living. Well, since they’re tired of living, they should effectuate their deaths and leave the rest of us alone. The end will come–but only when God decides, not them. But we have to give them credit where credit is due–their choice (not God’s) in supporting trump is leading to the destruction of the earth and God will hold them accountable for that.

For the rest of us who are not tired of living, but have hope in the future and a desire for our children and grandchildren to enjoy the planet–we have work to do and we don’t have time to wait for if we delay–for any reason–we perpetuate the nonsense being spewed by those Evangelicals who are tired of living. It is time to Resist the evil that confronts and unite to conquer the evil with love and compassion, driving out all the hate and bigotry.

We Do Have Choices!

We Do Have Choices!

No matter what “traditional thinking” is regarding tribalism when it comes to politics–we do not have to vote for a person just because they’re in the “right party” or because of their political careers or celebrity status or their gender. What should be important to all, in any election, is the candidate and what they stand for. (Shudder now known tribalists).

I know there are some who say we should vote for those with political experience. The problem with that is–if those are the only people we vote for–no one else ever gets a chance to learn how to govern. We cannot be expected to know or understand those things to which we have never been exposed. However, committing to being a life-long learner puts in a position to learn and do. After all, what’s the point of learning things if we never have an opportunity to apply what we’ve learned.

Therefore, in the 2018 election cycle–there are many people who have never entered into politics before now but chose this moment and hour to make a difference. Not only will this hold true for the 2018 election election cycle, but for 2020 election cycle and every election cycle afterwards until the United States of America is truly governed by, the people–the Everyday Americans–who understand what is needed for all.

Since the Republican party–(Conservatives or whatever they choose to call themselves) have abdicated their responsibility in allowing a fascist to run rough shod over America, it’s time to let them rest and reconsider the role they could have to play in American politics. In order to make sure we fully root out the problems–I think the Republican party needs a 20 year rest–just enough time for them to regroup and rethink what it means to be an American and who Americans are. Until they understand this–they should never be in a position to legislate laws or govern anyone, but themselves.

In essence–in order to purge the evil intent, greedy corrupt malefactors from Congress and local governments all over the country–the #BlueWaveTsunami is a must–to save humanity and our planet.

No matter what ethic group we identify with or gender or religious group–no matter what our political party affiliations are–we are all Americans and we should respect all Americans whether we agree them or not–it’s called “choice.” We do not have to denigrate those with whom we disagree nor do we need to try maligning them to make ourselves look better. In fact, any time we have to resort to “dirty political tactics” by dredging up every known and unknown thing about a person, we have wasted precious time and resources that could have been used to exalt what we want others to remember us by–where we stand and why.

So, here’s the point of this particular blog post–I am a Black woman who is daring to entertain the idea of running for president in 2020. Some have said, I won’t make it because my limited political experience; some have reminded be of the odds against me simply because I’m a Black woman, and some don’t think I can withstand public scrutiny and daggers thrown by those opposing my run.

They have a point–though I began this exploration with limited political experience, I’m gaining insight as to what I need to know by becoming a precinct delegate and being appointed to my city’s Zoning Board of Appeals Commission. I’m competing training modules provided by the National Democratic Training Committee and learning from those who have already cleared the path. I will be the 8th Black Woman or the 9th Black woman to run for president (if Kamala Harris gets her paperwork in before me). Being a Black woman is not going to deter me from seeking to do good–it never has and it never will.

I have a heart to save and a desire to push America forward and help prepare everyone to handle the technological challenges and in restoring our global position with other nations. I am an Everyday American, with no political baggage, no celebrity status, and no desire to be a “bought” candidate. No one can bribe, bully, or blackmail me about anything. And yes, I am an imperfect human being, which makes me a Flawed But Fearless Fighter for justice for all. I’ve accomplished quite a bit in my life and I don’t plan to stop accomplishing until I’m dead (in about 34 years from now). For the rest, if anyone wants to know more they can simply review where I stand on facebook.com/YesIAm2020 or do a search on my name. Nothing new can dissuade me and nothing old will deter me from my destiny in 2020. Win or lose (and I do plan to win), I’m making the case for everyone–to exercise their right to choose–remembering we do have choices.

I’m choosing the candidates I know will fight for all–not because of gender or party, but because of who they are in 2018. I hope in 2020–people will do the same–and vote for an Everyday American–in every election–to govern all Everyday Americans.

The Lies Are Disrupting My Peace!

The Lies Are Disrupting My Peace!

This is going to be short and sweet–I think!

The lies coming from the WH have finally gotten to me. It’s not just that trump has told over 3 thousand lies since taking office; it’s not just that Sarah Huckabee Sanders lies daily; and it’s not just because all the trump surrogates simply regurgitate the lies–I am tired of hearing the lies about the lies!

In 2016, when trump presented a letter on the Dr. Oz show–supposedly written by Dr. Borstein–I knew from the content–it was a lie. No credible doctor would write such crap. This week, the doctor admitted–trump dictated the letter read on the Dr. Oz show.

Considering the tone of the health report presented by Ronny Jackson, most of us knew it was a lie, but we reserved judgment until now.  I have concluded that if the doctors are willing to lie (because of bribe or bullying), then everyone around trump will lie.

And they all (WH and spokespersons) called Hillary a liar and Comey a liar–which is hypocritical to say the least since neither have told the whoppers fed by trump administration. In fact, just yesterday, someone provided a graph of the lies told by Obama and trump–in 8 years, Obama was listed at telling 18 lies–in 468 days, trump listed at telling over 3 thousand (over 5 thousand since declaring candidacy in 2015).

First trump didn’t know anything about the $130K payment to Stormy Daniels (his lie on Air Force One), now Giuliani tells Sean Hannity, trump reimbursed Cohen for the payment.

They have all lied about Russian involvement and it has and is being revealed now. They have all lied about what they knew about–anything remotely related to the election meddling (they knew and cooperated).

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of the lies and my inner peace is disrupted every time I hear them lie. The lies prove to me–that none of these so-called Christians are in fact Christians; they have no clue what The Word says about lying and liars. So, here’s my reminder:

Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. 1 John 2:4 NIV

But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” Revelation 21:8 NIV

There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community. Proverbs 6:16-19 NIV

There is so much more from the bible the lying, irresponsible Republicans claim to read. They haven’t read or haven’t understood what they claim they read. And then, they had the nerve to get upset with Michelle Wolf, a comedian, who confronted them with truth and they couldn’t handle the truth because the lies have warped all sense of honesty and morality within them.

It’s time for a change–a change that benefits all Everyday Americans and change that will promoted with integrity and truth–no more lies!

Corruption In The Midst!

Corruption In The Midst!

They have sunk deep into corruption, as in the days of Gibeah. God will remember their wickedness and punish them for their sins. Hosea 9:9 NIV

Mob boss mentality. Organized crime tactics. Payola. Rudy Giuliani. Donald J. Trump. Mike Pence, FBI agents (loyal to Giuliani), NYPD, Fox News, Sean Hannity, Jim Jordan, Mark Meadow, Matt Gaetz, Most Congressional GOP, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Ronna Romney McDaniel, Devin Nunes, Trey Gowdy, et al.

These are the people who have deliberately conspired to undermine democracy in America and are yet collaborating with the enemy–within the White House.

Did you ever imagine seeing what is happening in America–right now? The Oval Office resident, taking instructions from Vladmir Putin to keep him exposing “salacious truths” about a Russian visit–that from all accounts–have been verified with flight logs and credible witnesses. Did you imagine that?

Did you ever imagine having our election process tainted and hacked by those who are afraid of losing control over people? That is why they’re doing what they’re doing–fear is driving them which proves there is no love within any of them.

Did you ever imagine that an elected leader would instigate and ignite so much hatred in the land that people actually think they have a right to taunt, maim, and kill those who don’t look like them or worship like them–just because?

Is this America–land of the free, home of the brave when one segment of the population is steering elected leaders to squash and undermine the Constitution?

The corruption is deep-seated and in high places, wearing ties and suits, beginning in the White House and trickling down the hall and out the door up the hill–fear washing away common sense and civility and decency and honor and integrity until there is nothing left but anger, hatred and bigotry where everyone is suspected of doing something wrong based upon feelings where no evidence exists. All a ploy to cover up the involvement of so many who wanted to win an election so badly they were willing to sell their souls and they did, but now–the end is near and all the corruption is about to be exposed simply because–“whatever is hidden or done in the dark shall be revealed.”

All the angst and screaming and shouting and redundancy–won’t matter. Innocent people–don’t fear investigations and they don’t keep screaming the same lie–day after day, to whoever will listen and by now–no one is listening to the false proclamations of–No collusion.

Consider this for a moment–a pathological liar who lies about everything (being his own publicist and his net worth), to crowd size and approval ratings and celebrity (only the foolish believe) is going to lie about everything else and we see–thanks to Stormy Daniels (who has really created a storm)–just how corrupt Donald J. Trump is and will be for he knows not the way of righteousness. All he knows is how to blame others for his ineptness and incompetence and in how to rape the United States Treasury–without regard to the fact that tax payer dollars–don’t belong to him.

But then–that’s the way dictators act–they raid the treasuries so they can live luxurious lives, while they burden the poor and the needy for they have no use for them. We see this in all the overturned regulations that allow air pollution and contamination of water and soil and who does this hurt the most? The poor saps who believed he cared about them and now–they’re beginning to see–albeit a bit late in the game–he cares for no one but himself.

They failed to see how corrupt a business man he was and is. They failed to take note of the lies he told about Hillary and others for making up lies is what he does best. They failed to take off the blinders of idol worship to see and understand what was right in front of them–Corruption with yellow hair and a long red tie waving in the wind of callously calculated deception and demagoguery. Now, they have to live with it just like the rest of us, only we who see–are fighting back–resisting the evil that lurks and permeates the very air we breath, choking those in DC and keeping them toeing the line of corruption that’s about to break and deliver them all into the pits of hell, they dug.

Don’t blame Comey, Rosenstein or Mueller for the corruption in which the evildoers are mired. Those who are fighting to see truth prevail are not responsible for the corruption, but will make sure justice prevails and all the corruption is known along with the corruptors who think they can hide behind their positions as lawmakers.

There is another group of people responsible for the deceptive flimflam we see–White Evangelicals who claim to be Christians, but know not Christ and we see it in their efforts to control others, disregard the rights of the poor and the needy and in lying to the general public about the monster they claim–has come to know God–yet their proclamation is without evidence of any fruit–you know–the fruit of the Holy Spirit–the evidence He is now in control–you know–love, joy, peace, kindness, gentleness, hope, faith, (integrity & honor), patience, and self-control. They promoted a person who doesn’t even know what civility means and therefore we certainly can’t expect him to conduct himself–civilly–with others–and he doesn’t. No class, no decorum, no integrity, no honor, no decency whatsoever and they–the White Evangelicals–claim this person is God’s choice to lead America. How quickly they learned to lie and are promoting the continuation of the lie just so they can garner control over what others do. In the end, God will have His way and they won’t like what awaits them and all other liars–the lake of fire.

But as bad as it all seems there is hope–God will turn it around to benefit all He loves. And that is the key–God is love, not hate and love will triumph over hate. And all who know God, belong to God and understand that, “perfect love (unconditional love) casts out fear” will see the darkness dispelled when truth is revealed.

It’s time for a change and all who know how to love–unconditionally–can bring change into effect and reach others so nothing like this will ever happen again. Make a commitment to vote Blue in every election in every state so evil will never again have a chance to wreck our democracy in the guise of “false patriotism” promoting fascists.

Which Way Do We Go?

Which Way Do We Go?

There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.“I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him. Luke 12:2-5 NIV

A lot has been going on in our society lately, especially in the political arena and in DC. With all of the uproar and rumors, eventually the truth will be known, about everything, not just one thing, about one person–but about everything and everyone involved in deceiving America. The cover is about to be pulled off the hidden stuff and there will be much grinding of teeth and angst. We already see it–fear–has caused total incoherence in the White House, but they’ll never admit it.

How do I know? I pay attention–to what is said, by whom it’s said and watching the conduct of all those who claim–they’re innocent.

Innocent people are not afraid of investigations–they welcome them–especially when the truth will set them free from any doubt of wrong doing.

Innocent people don’t threaten other people with illegal detainment and arrest and prosecution.

Innocent people have no problem answering questions from whoever wants to ask.

Innocent people welcome the opportunity for total transparency so they can move on with their lives without concern about being “exposed.”

Guilty people–on the other hand–are always decrying victimization by others and it’s always someone else’s fault.

Guilty people are read by their body language which indicates–something hidden and fear rises to the service making them stammer and stutter.

Guilty people don’t know when to shut up–always have to accuse others of what they’re guilty of doing.

We’ve heard a lot from a number of people this week–too much for me to try to regale in this blog post so I’ll just try to hit the highlights.

As if we didn’t already know–Donald J. Trump is the biggest liar on the planet and those who speak on his behalf–like Jim Jordan are liars after the heart of their master. How do we know–Stormy moved across the television screens of many; Comey stood up the bully and spoke his truth about all that occurred in the first five months in the WH as it pertained to him; Michael Cohen was exposed for being an attorney with a limited clientele that included the megaphone from Fox News–Sean Hannity–who attempted to further conflate the exposure by lying–claiming he had never hired or paid Cohen, but thought he had attorney/client privilege. It’s either one or the other, not both. And then–to top it all off (and the week is not even over), Trump tweeted that Comey lied about why he was fired, when it was trump himself who told Lester Holt on national television that he fired Comey because of the Russia investigation. If that wasn’t juicy enough–we learn that trump called another attorney, Jay Goldberg who told him if Cohen was faced with a rigid federal sentence, he would probably flip. Now, that call was made last week, which explains the myriad tweet rants this week.

Some days, I just have to cut off the news to maintain my sanity because every day, there’s more lying and complicity and now–most have of us have determined that there is evidence out there that proves beyond a shadow of doubt that trump is a treasonous traitor.

But there are other traitors in Washington–those who have been partakers in the RussianRubeJob–taking money from Russian oligarchs thinking they’ll never be found out. I guess that’s why 43 republicans, including Paul Ryan are resigning and that number may continue to rise as truth is revealed. Some have already left–like Jason Chaffetz in hopes of warding off being exposed, but Justice–though blind will find and make known the truth.

Proof enough that we need new leadership and direction in Washington–people with morals, values and integrity and a will to serve the people? I think so and am more determined than ever to be ready in 2020 to serve Everyday Americans because–we deserve better and we must go with truth!
