When was the last time a US president’s lies filled an entire page of the New York Times? When has there been a time in our nation’s history when so many ignored the lies to continue supporting such a real loser?
The growing shame of our country is not the ignorance, greed and total immorality of #BLOTUS. The true shame of our nation is the willing acceptance and continued support of such a man by all those who do not care about the reality of what he is and what he grabbing.
This isn’t democracy at work…it is unadulterated greed; partisan politics working to benefit the wealthy, with no pretense of helping those in our society with the greatest need. Every senator voting for this bill is sending a clear and unambiguous one-finger salute to the vast majority of our nation.
There’s a huge difference between healthcare and wealthcare. We truly do not need more tax breaks for the wealthy of our nation, especially at the price of taking away medical care for those most at risk, Our democracy needs an immediate and life-saving transfusion of a 50/50 solution of justice and compassion.
Earlier this morning I read that Robert Mueller’s team has added over a dozen new attorneys to help dig deeper into the malfeasance and corruption at the heart of Trump’s circle. Now, the president’s personal lawyer, following the wise move of Vice President Pence, has hired another lawyer to represent him. When lawyers hire lawyers they know it is about to get real.
Trump is single-handedly attempting to kick-start the economy by providing more jobs for lawyers. I don’t care how many flying monkeys the #Blotus lets fly, the Hounds of Justice are coming after him, and he can feel them getting ever closer.
Even George Orwell couldn’t have imagined this amount of doublespeak and overt lying. #BLOTUS is the undisputed “Lord of the Lies.” Bruce Riedel lets us know once again that our Liar-in-Chief cannot be trusted.
And now the Cheetos-colored, wannabe king is verbally attacking one of our biggest allies in the Middle East. Is he truly this stupid?
A real leader is a servant. A fake leader just uses lies, intimidation and brute force to get their own way, regardless of the cost to those they are supposedly leading. If an illustration would be helpful, take a look at the #BLOTUS.
He is the exact opposite of a real leader. He has become the “Lord of the Lies.” and the truth is never in him. His only concerns seem to be protecting his wealth and showing love to those attacking the democratic institutions of the United States, and his blustering attacks on the press and anyone else attempting to hold him accountable are a smoking gun in one tiny hand and a large red flag in the other.
Following this fake leader will not make America great again. He is already a public laughingstock among world leaders.
Our nation has lost its position of leadership in world affairs because we no longer have a real leader. We have a petulant man-child that needs to be adored, pampered and have someone change his diapers. That’s not a real leader.
The new Health Care Bill passed by the House yesterday is yet another example of how power corrupts and the greed of the wealthy knows no limits. Our nation sees less justice with each passing day for the poor, the marginalized, and the powerless.
Those of us who identify with the least of these among us, those of us who try to live lives modeled after the man of Nazareth, know that the answer to injustice is love. And the more radical that love, the more effective it is at ripping through the lies of those in power.
Now is the time for us to demonstrate faithfulness to the Gospel in everything we do and say. Now is when we must not be silent, but speak the truth to those whose disregard for justice threatens those who need it most.
