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?
When I think of #BLOTUS, his family and cronies, this quote immediately comes to mind. Never in my lifetime have I witnessed such unmitigated intolerance, lying and corruption focused in the hands of so few and accepted by so many.
Leadership comes in many shapes and sizes. None of them is a fit for the #BLOTUS. He is an egotistical, racist bully that brings shame and disgrace to the office he holds and to all that our nation represents. Some might even call him a war monger.
In reality, however, he is just a tiny little man, a spoiled brat who has never been made to grow up and face the consequences of his tantrums. Now, the entire world is being made to suffer from his hunger for power.
Rational, thinking people around the globe have no difficulty seeing the #BLOTUS for what and who he really is. And because they see the truth, they can also understand how he is destroying our nation.
My question is simple. If people around the world can recognize an egotistical, lying, racist, why can’t his Republican supporters recognize it as well?
I’m afraid the answer is just as simple. Supporters of the #BLOTUS obviously agree with him.
They do not care about his collusion with Russia to pay off his massive debts. To them, #BLOTUS is more important than the future of our country.
That’s not patriotic. That’s stupid…if not treasonous
