I marched in opposition to the Second Gulf War, both in Washington, DC and New York. I spoke out to any who would listen about the grossly immoral actions our nation were taking. I made my voice heard.
Now, I will continue to speak out against those in power who are tearing apart our country and ripping up the very fabric of American society. I see #BLOTUS creating a dangerous personality cult that is far to similar to what Hitler did in Germany in the 1930s. We are already at the place where those in power can enrich themselves while ignoring the needs of the poor and middle classes.
History shows us where this road leads, It isn’t pretty, and it isn’t a place I want us to go.
Trump’s greed and his message of hate must be resisted at every opportunity. I will again take to the streets if the Trump-Russia investigation is derailed by any means. The right to peaceful protest needs to be used while it is still a right.
When those we have elected to lead us fail as dismally as those we now have in leadership, they need to be removed as fast as legally possible and replaced with those who understand that they are elected to serve the citizens, to the other way around.
Words are insufficient to describe my shame over the lack of character displayed by those Senators who continue to support such a critically flawed human as Donald Trump. Such a complete absence of moral leadership deserves nothing but contempt and revulsion.
Those in Congress who refuse to speak up should not be allowed any position of political leadership. They are cowards at best, and treasonous at worst.
This powerful statement is engraved on the side of the Department of Justice Building in Washington, DC. It is always worth remembering, but especially in times when those in power are working so hard to undermine the precepts of a lawful society.
I fully support the fine men and women who have dedicated their careers and their lives to ensure our nation abides by the rule of law. The work of the Justice Department is critical to our freedom.
All those currently in power who are attempting to discredit and and undermine the efforts of the DOJ do so because they are afraid of the truth and fear justice being done. They neither believe in the supremacy of the law, or feel that the law applies to them.
They act as if they are above the law. Robert Mueller and the Justice Department will soon correct that very mistaken understanding.
This quote from George Orwell’s 1984 seems eerily relevant today, doesn’t it? It has become ever more clear that power is the one thing, the only thing, that matters to the #BLOTUS and the Republicans in Congress.
If you need an example, which most thinking folks don’t at this point, just look at the complete Republican support of Roy Moore to fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions. Having another Republican vote in the Senate outweighs any question of improper or immoral behavior.
The many-times accused molester in the Offal Office has said that having a Republican like the accused child molester, Roy Moore, in the Senate is far preferable to having a Democrat, any Democrat, fill the seat. Moore not only has been accused by numerous women of involvement with them as young and underage girls, the man has twice been removed from his seat as Judge.
None of that matters. All that matters, the only thing that matters, is power, pure power.
We all have already heard how this tax bill for the middle class would put at least a billion dollars into Trump’s family coffers while increasing taxes on the rest of us and cutting needed services. Now they also want to help the ultra wealthy with a tax break on their private jets.
This is how revolutions are spawned. I am just totally surprised that there has not been more outrage demonstrated at the perpatrators of this grasp for more wealth and power.
This Washington Post-ABC News Poll from last October should strike fear into the hearts of those who are disciples of the Man from Nazareth. White evangelical Christians were the biggest believers that the #BLOTUS had a strong moral character. White non-evangelical Christians were not far behind.
What that reveals about white Christians, especially evangelicals, should start alarm bells ringing in every church in the country. If those who most deeply profess to follow Jesus actually think Trump has a strong moral character, it means that they have absolutely no clue as to who Jesus is or what He taught.
The poll does, however, give us a good indication of why the church no longer has the authority and moral leadership it once had. White Protestants need to once again figure out that faithfulness to the gospel of Jesus is not the same as blind patriotism, love of country, or love of power.
The most interesting statistic was that those who professed no religion seemed to have the best understanding of the lack of moral character of the #BLOTUS. Is that possibly because their understanding of morality isn’t filtered through the lens of religion?
