What In The World?

What In The World?

I’ve been pretty vocal about all the nonsense Americans have had to endure for the past two years, but it’s getting crazier and crazier with no end in sight (except 11/6/18). I mean really, we are facing the most autocratic Oval Office resident this country has ever seen. And it’s all part of a grander plan. When our democracy falls apart (if people don’t vote Blue in November), all those who fell for the okey doke of trump’s campaign can blame the Republicans in Congress who would not exercise their constitutional right of oversight of the executive office. But here’s why they didn’t do their job. They wanted tax cuts for the rich, and conservative judges who will rule against individual rights of people regarding: women’s reproductive rights, who people can love, access to affordable healthcare, and of course we cannot forget–the corporate promises fulfilled with the roll back of consumer protections that will lead to the deaths of many people. Now, don’t forget–trump also wants the Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, to prosecute people for disagreeing with him, for criticizing him, and for daring to exercise their 1st Amendment rights in expressing their criticism.

This is the gist of what they wanted and have succeeded in obtaining:

agenda

What the world has had an opportunity to observe with the “confirmation hearings” of Brett Kavanaugh, we are assured that he will cave to “party preference” and not care about what’s best for the country if given an opportunity to overturn, Roe v Wade, the Marriage Equality Act, and the Affordable Care Act leaving millions without healthcare. Additionally, the conflated views of “religious freedom” will be tested when corporations and insurance companies can use “their faith” to reject the rights of others.

The most interesting thing about this hearing is the fact that the nominee, avoids answering any questions and it won’t matter to the Republican majority because they have already determined they are going to confirm him. So what is the point of these hearings in which no answers are expected? This had been such a farce and waste of time, but his non-responsive answers–tell the average American a great deal about the character of the person.

And now we have the rantings of the moron-in-chief upset about an anonymous OpEd, all because someone in the White House dared to tell the truth about his behavior and lack of knowledge. Personally, I’m glad the person wrote it–whoever it was, since it confirms what has already been said–trump is a psychotic narcissistic moron who knows nothing and is consistently endangering our national security. Michael Wolff said it in his book, Omarosa said it in her book, and now it would appear that Bob Woodward has unveiled the same sentiments–with receipts!

What is it going to take for the those who blindly support the “enemy of the people” to wake up and smell the stench of treason emanating from the White House? Did they really drink a mind-numbing shake or other drink at his hate rallies that makes them incapable of rational, logical thought?

I don’t know what’s going to happen to America if people don’t get out and vote in November, but I know it won’t be pretty since we already know Russia has a tight, vise-like grip on trump’s balls and he’s afraid of him. What does Putin have on trump and the rest of the GOP? It’s got to be really bad for them to cave to foolishness and risk alienating our allies!

Here’s the thing. What in the world are you going to do about it? Yes, you–whoever is reading this. Are you going to make it your business to encourage the vote in November and for people to vote Blue or are you going to sit back on the sidelines and just shake your head? We, the people, have the power to change the course of events and save Americans and our democracy. Are you going to be part of the solution or part of the problem? I know what I’m going to do. I’m going to help get people registered to vote, encourage them to Vote Blue and take them to the polls with me–if I have to–to make sure they vote. I am going to use all of my social media platforms to make sure everyone knows this is not a drill! Our rights to vote are on the line if we don’t get this right in November!

So, again, I ask you–what in the world are you going to do?

Attention voters

Why? Because Democrats care about the people and they will work #ForThePeople!

for the ppl

If you care at all about our environment, how veterans are treated, how our senior citizens are treated, education, a living wage, and access to affordable healthcare–now is the time to act–get it in gear and move mountains to get out the Blue Vote on November 6, 2018 so we can all breathe a little easier, knowing there will be checks and balances as the Democrats do the job, Republicans won’t do.

Don’t forget–if we have a democracy surviving the resident idiot, I’m running for president in 2020 and I guarantee you, I won’t forget who it is I’m supposed to represent and serve. I will always work #ForThePeople–the Everyday Americans!

Presidential Qualifications

Presidential Qualifications

According to the constitution–there are only a few qualifications a person must meet in order to run for president in this country. They are:

No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.

Therefore, if we’re going to be real and factual, our claims (including mine) that trump is not qualified to be president are not necessarily true–according the requirements as written. Apparently, the founding fathers didn’t think far enough ahead to anticipate the menace we now have in the White House–who certainly is not fit to hold the office. Ah ha! The difference between being qualified and being fit is exposed on a daily basis.

So, now how do we determine a person’s fitness for the office?

I’m not convinced that a person has to have held an elected position prior to running for president or be rich or have a well-connected family name. I am convinced that anyone running for the office of president should have a genuine concern and desire to serve all the people in the United States and not just some of them. Therefore, based upon what we’ve seen, the current Oval Office resident is only concerned with establishing policies that benefit the rich and campaigning to appease his base (40%) of the American population. And because people were so foolish to not vote because their candidate didn’t get the nomination in 2016, here we are today, in 2018, trying to figure out how we get out from under the oppressive, authoritarian mess that now exists.

The one bright spot to the traitor’s election is the fact that people–from all walks of life–have felt impelled to run for office and that’s a good thing. Complacency has taken a back seat to the horrors of what we now face as a nation.

I’ve talked to a number of people in the past year and will probably talk to more. Many are running for offices or have run and the recurring them for their political involvement is, “trump happened.” I know that’s true for me–if he had never been installed in office, I probably would have lived out the rest of my life, totally inactive, thinking that voting was enough. Just voting–is not enough! If we want to see a change in this country, every able-bodied, mentally stable American needs to get actively involved in the political process of this country–it’s the way Democracy works.

At any rate, let’s get back to the point I want to make–about having presidential qualifications which include being fit for the office. As most of my followers know, I plan to run for President in 2020. Many have said, they don’t think I’m qualified based upon a few factors: I’ve not held an elected public office (not a career politician), I’m not rich (no matter how rich is defined), and I’m not affiliated with any religious institution (meant to appease the religious sector in the country).

On the other hand, there are number of reasons why I believe I’m the perfect person (qualified and fit) for the position of President of the United States.

  • I am an American (though the founding fathers didn’t have me in mind) who believes in adhering to the Constitution of the United States.
  • I have been a public servant for over 20 years as an educator and volunteer in various situations.
  • I know the three branches of government and the intent for checks and balances needed for a democratic process to work and have an affinity for understanding history.
  • I have a better than average understanding of how government is supposed to work and will work to maintain (or restore in this case) the relationships between our allies.
  • I have a heart for all people regardless of their ethnicity, gender, religious beliefs or anything else.
  • I care about our planet and want to make sure my grandchildren and their children can enjoy breathing clean air, drinking clean water, and in eating foods not poisoned by toxic soil.
  • I want every person who desires a higher education to have access to one without overwhelming debt (I know all too well how this is overwhelming)
  • I want every educator to be treated with respect and dignity and paid as the professionals they are.
  • I want every Senior Citizen to live secure in the knowledge that benefits they paid into will always be available to them.
  • I want every American–regardless of age or pre-existing conditions to have access to affordable healthcare.
  • I want every veteran who has served this country to be honored as the heroes they are and for them to have every service they need to continue living a productive life.
  • I want every American to be treated with respect and dignity and afforded equal rights in every area of their lives.
  • I want corporations to pay their fair share of taxes and for them to pay employees a living wage commensurate with their skills and ability.
  • I want access for every person who wants to run for an elected office to be able to do so without finances being a barrier that impedes.
  • I want to see America’s Democratic process work for every American and that the people determine the direction of our nation, not corrupt, bought and paid for politicians who forget how they were elected in the first place.
  • I am as mentally stable as anyone can be at the moment with the constant threat of nuclear war by the menace in the White House who is truly the enemy of the people.

In addition to the above bulleted points–I am physically fit to endure rigors of the office and if for any reason, my physical ability should falter, I have no qualms about moving aside so that the country moves forward with the best person at the helm. My strongest character traits are my integrity and tenacity. My weakest character trait (and I’m working on overcoming it) is believing in the best of people. When I see the worst in them, I acknowledge it and sever ties with them. I know how to love from afar.

For those who think that having an affiliation with a religious institution is important, let me say this. My relationship with Jesus Christ is far more important than an affiliation with any religious institution since they “change” and Jesus does not. I’m happy with my relationship with other believers and even those who don’t. Neither belief or unbelief changes who I am or how I try to live life as a living representation of who God is.

So, now do you think I’m qualified to run for president? Only the voters will make that decision and I hope they find in my favor and elect an Everyday American who cares about all people, rather than a career politician, or entertainer simply because they have the money or family name. I want people to research who I am and determine for themselves whether they think I can represent who they are and address their needs.

Demolition of American Democracy!

Demolition of American Democracy!

The definition of “democracy” is simple or at least the intent was simple–a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system (dictionary.com).

Let me try to break this down–the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.  Supreme power means the people have the last say over what happens in our government. Of course, that ability has been hampered by the Russian attack on our electoral process with their propagation of false/misleading/disinformation to a very gullible, frustrated group of Americans. Their frustration led them to believe that a person with multiple bankruptcies and billions in outstanding debt was a good businessman. Actually, it was more about their hatred of a strong, intelligent woman that sent them over the edge and they gambled on the pathological liar who claimed he’d look after them. The only person he’s looked after is the rich and corporations who want to pollute the earth in pursuit of greed by destroying the environment with fracking and decimating the wildlife and tourism. That’s how he’s looking after folks.

But I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself. When a foreign entity attacks the electoral process in favor of the incompetent, easily manipulated pathological liar and the “freely elected” (Russian interference) person in the White House proves, he’s going to do whatever Putin says, that’s not a free election. We have discovered since the 2016 election that various means of voter suppression took place in the swing states, from broken machines to fraudulent voter purging. It would appear that in every state where the person in charge of the election board was a Republican–there was proof that the “free election” did not take place. If the people don’t have Supreme power (unhindered by interference) there can be no government by the people for the people.

In fact, since we know Traitor Don’s biggest fear is in having to admit his presidency is not legitimate, the reason the Republicans won’t rein him in is because their election is also suspect–the reason we have a majority of Republicans in both houses of Congress is due to the Russian attack on our electoral system.

Now, we know from the “Helsinki Summit” (or rather the Hell sinking summit), that Putin admitted he wanted trump to win and that he deliberately influenced the election to get the result he wanted. But in another trumpian move–the White House has “erased” from the video of the press conference the comments Putin made. I’m guessing because he thinks we’re all stupid and will forget what we heard. And to make sure there is NO transparency in the White House between trump and other foreign (dictators) leaders is because they decided not to provide the public or Congress with any read-outs of the phone calls. Does that sound like a person with nothing to hide? Of course! He has a great deal to hide and he’s so foolish that he doesn’t realize all of his moves to obfuscate the truth, just gives Mueller more ammunition to use against him.

This defies all logic and precedents set regarding not only the protection of the resident in the WH, but in offering transparency to the public that elected them.

And now, Traitor Don wants to turn over Americans to be interrogated by Vladmir Putin simply because they openly criticize him. That’s the move of a dictator–once again. He has constantly called the media, “Fake News” because they tell the truth and just yesterday, he told the audience at a VFM convention, “don’t believe what you see or read. It’s not what’s happening.” In actuality, what we see and hear from media with integrity is exactly what’s happening and some (rogues in the WH) have confirmed everything. The only media outlets not telling the truth are Fox News, Breitbart, Sinclair Broadcasting and other right-wing radio shows. We cannot overlook all the conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones and a crazy pastor, Rick Wiles who claims

coup & decapitate Trump within hours

Rick Wiles LGBTQ Nation

Christian broadcaster and conspiracy theorist Rick Wiles is back with even more rightwing lunacy. This time, he’s claiming MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow, an out lesbian, will lead a coup against President Donald Trump.

Even worse, it’s in a few hours and we’re gonna have to throw together an outfit at the last minute. What’s black and goes with decapitation?

“America, you’ve been homosexualized. You’ve been Jewdy-ized. I’m just telling it how it is,” Wiles told viewers. “She was spewing out, last night, calls for revolution. She was telling the left, ‘Take a deep breath, we’re at the moment, it’s coming, we’re almost there, we’re going to remove him from the White House.’ We’re about 72 hours — possibly 72 hours — from a coup.

“Be prepared that you’re going to turn on the television and see helicopters hovering over the roof of the White House with men clad in black rappelling down ropes, entering into the White House. Be prepared for a shoot out in the White House as Secret Service agents shoot commandos coming in to arrest President Trump.”

But Wiles wasn’t finished with his hysterical anti-semitism and homophobia.

“That is how close we are to a revolution. Be prepared for a mob — a leftist mob — to tear down the gates, the fence at the White House and to go into the White House and to drag him out with his family and decapitate them on the lawn of the White House,” he said.

And of course, his gullible base believes every stupid thing the ignorant oafs say. Trying to talk to trump supporters just to get them to think for themselves is a total waste of time. They are not interested in facts or logic and only spew trump talking points like parrots.

George Orwell warned all of humanity in his book, “1984” what would happen when, “the party tells you not to believe what your eyes see or your ears hear.” We have entered into a phase of authoritarianism and trump supporters don’t seem to care. They evidently like the idea of a dictator ruling over them. Of course, he’s already doing that since he’s manipulating their ability to think and act.

But let’s not forget one important salient fact. When trump side by side to a known adversary to America, he took the side of the adversary over American Intelligence Agencies. That is treason and until the complicit GOP Congress finds their balls or develops a spine (not sure which is harder for them to do), we’re on a downward spiral in seeing the demolition of American democracy.

Now, for all of you who might disagree with me–go ahead. But look for the evidence yourself of what I’m saying. Innocent people don’t try to hide what they do. Innocent people don’t keep screaming about their innocence. Innocent people don’t blame others for their shortcomings and incompetence. Innocent people don’t try to impede an investigation against them. Only guilty people do all of this–because they have something to hide and don’t want to be publicly exposed for all their wrongdoing and that includes–this illegitimate election.

Those who refuse to think for themselves and rise up against the tyranny that faces this country are complicit in the fall of our democracy. There’s no need to complain–if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.

By the way, nothing in this blog is new–I’ve said it all before and if you don’t believe, check out some of my earlier blogs. This warning has been out there for a long time now. But all I got for my effort was admonitions from people trying to convince me I was wrong about trump. I’ve proven and time has proven, I was right. Trump is the biggest disaster to hit the American shores and he’ll destroy everything America once stood for in his effort to be something he is not.

Attention voters

Don’t allow the foolish to be the instruments used for the Demolition our American Democracy! Go Vote!

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!

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!

Rejecting Wisdom Is What Fools Do!

Rejecting Wisdom Is What Fools Do!

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7 NIV

Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Proverbs 4:5-7 NIV

Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice? Proverbs 8:1 NIV

for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her. Proverbs 8:11 NIV

Whenever we need to grasp a better understanding of what we are seeing in Washington, DC, reading Proverbs reminds us that those who lack wisdom are the fools in charge–for now.

How did this happen? Gullible people–fearful, hateful, and spiteful–decided to believe all the disinformation and misinformation promoted by the racist bigots with the help of Russian trolls.

Though many did not like Hillary Clinton (actually hated her), they hated her without justification based upon the political, tribal agenda of the Republicans. Had they listened to her, and accepted the wisdom they did not agree with–this country would not be a laughingstock in the eyes of other nations. Whether people liked her or not–she told us exactly what would happen if the menace in the White House was elected.

She warned of his being triggered by tweets.

She warned of his authoritarian–dictatorial mentality.

She warned us that he would lie about any and everything.

She warned us that his hatred would reign in his decisions.

She warned us that any tax reform would only benefit the rich.

She warned us that millions would be without adequate healthcare.

She warned us that budget slashes would affect the poor and the needy.

She warned us that he would turn on the LGBQT community.

She warned us that he was Putin’s puppet.

She warned us that his ego would lead us into places wise men would not go.

Isn’t it amazing how God references wisdom in the “feminine” voice! This refutes the notion that God views women as inferior to men.

Since we cannot go back in time and change anything, it is time we sought wisdom and stopped thinking we know it all–like the rest of the fools.

Obtaining wisdom leads us to understanding why right-wing evangelicals felt the need to lie to their congregations and are still lying to America–at those to those who bother to listen to them.

Obtaining wisdom leads us to understanding why we should never take our democracy for granted since we see the results of a wanna-be dictator trying to dismantle our Constitution.

Obtaining wisdom leads us to understanding why we should research information for ourselves and not allow the opinions of a few–especially those with distorted views–feed us information that will eventually lead to our destruction.

Obtaining wisdom leads us to listening to those who are far wiser than we are, whether we agree with them or not–it should make us stop and think–critically–of what it is we’re hearing.

Hopefully, we have seen so much foolishness that we will certainly acquire the wisdom needed to right the wrongs and set America back on the track of greatness and honor. We can exercise wisdom in the coming elections by analyzing what has occurred and concluding what could result if the party of grand old prevaricators stay in power. They have proven they will not uphold their oaths of office and do their job by covering for the pathological liar, making excuses for his incompetence and hatefulness.

Determine now–that never again–will we allow anyone to mislead us and encourage us to vote for political candidate out of hatred, bigotry and fear. For the those of us who claim to be Christians–we should know, “perfect love cast out fear.” Where there is fear, a fearful heart, and unjustifiable fear of people–there is no love. Where there is no love, people live in darkness for love is light in dark places. Where there is love–unconditionally–for all people–there is no room for hatred and bigotry.

Determine now–that we will walk in love towards all people–endeavoring to live at peace with the world, learning to disagree, agreeably–not with malice in our hearts. We will walk in wisdom in coming elections–voting for the person who cares about all people–not just a group–and one who consider policies that benefit all–not just some. America is “one nation” composed of many diverse people–all of whom have much to contribute to our society and our ability to thrive as a nation.

The person we next elect as president of the “United” (not separated/divided) States of America should be an Everyday American who knows and understands the struggles and challenges of Everyday Americans and one who will fight for the rights of all Everyday Americans without denigrating or maligning others.

I am an Everyday American. I cherish and embrace wisdom and know how to reject foolishness. I know I can serve the needs of all Everyday Americans regardless of political affiliations, gender, ethnicity, or faith. My loyalty will be to the people, not a party and I will work with all who choose to serve Americans.

Regrets–We’ll Have A Few!

Regrets–We’ll Have A Few!

So the LORD said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.” Genesis 6:7 NIV

“I regret that I have made Saul king, because he has turned away from me and has not carried out my instructions.” Samuel was angry, and he cried out to the LORD all that night. I Samuel 15:11 NIV

I can only imagine who is regretting their support of the White House maniac. I didn’t vote for him, but I do regret not working harder for Hillary and to expose all the false propaganda published about her. I did what I could, but perhaps, I could have done more and we would not be in the outhouse, now!

I know there are some who have regret voting for him because they’ve already expressed “buyer’s remorse.” They realize, a bit late in the game, that hatred is never an appropriate reason to either not vote or vote for a person who made it known–he was a jerk.

Are we allowed to have regrets? Absolutely! God expressed His regret over making mankind, but fortunately for us–He repented of His thoughts and left behind a remnant to replenish mankind. Although, looking back at all we’ve done to make a mockery of His love and in destroying the planet, I wonder if He regrets leaving us here, again.

At then Samuel, bless his heart, when he heard the Word of The Lord–regretting making Saul king, he got angry. You see, here’s the thing. God speaks to all who are willing to hear Him and sometimes, we won’t like what we hear. Now, we can either act on what we hear or not–our choice since God doesn’t force anyone to do anything.

Have the White Evangelicals admitted regret for lying to people and promoting an absolute traitor to this country? Some have, some haven’t. When analysts from Fox News, throws up their hands–it’s time for everyone to take notice at what’s really going on in the White House.

It’s not that difficult to figure out–Vladimir Putin owns donald trump aka John Barron aka David Dennison aka Rumplethinskin and aka–treasonous traitor. Whatever Putin has on him has him petrified. I can imagine–every time someone calls the White House–he soils himself–thinking that might be the last call before total exposure–what he’s done–hits the fan.

The real problem–is not learning what hold Putin has on Rumplethinskin–is knowing we could end up in war as a distraction to keep us from learning what it is. Desperate people do desperate things and we know–Rumplethinskin is not capable of thinking beyond the moment–so there will be no consideration of the consequences of his actions for America–just like there has been none with the implementation of extraneous tariffs on China. The Consumers will pay and pay dearly. Feeling any regrets now?

If regret is not an emotion being felt by the masses (at least the 35%–his base), give it a minute and then start crying for your sons and daughters who will dies in a senseless war because you elected a person (can’t call him a man) with no sense.

If we make it to January 2019, we’ll have a chance to survive. If we don’t–I won’t regret trying to warn people even though the evidence may disintegrate in the nuclear fallout. That’s something to think about because once started, nothing good can come from a nuclear war and certainly, no opportunity to regret–anything. It will be too late.

Well, I’ve certainly learned my lesson–about trying harder to prevent catastrophe–I’m not giving up my quest without a fight–a fight to restore the good name of America and our rightful place on the global stage.

We do not have a president at the moment and our elected Congress–has no balls or integrity or we’d not find ourselves in the position we’re in right now. But there is a Little Known Educator who has a remedy.

When everyone gets out to vote in every election from hence forth, the vote should go to whoever is running as a Democrat in order to save the nation from the authoritarian fascist that wants to control this country as a dictator.

Attention voters

If we all work together, setting aside differences–we can do this–set America back on track–without risking our freedoms–or leaving them in the hands of one (in this case–two).

Don’t live with regrets–get out and vote and encourage family and friends to vote for the party that cares about all.
