treason from within

I doubt that Cicero was warning our nation about the #BLOTUS. But, I have to admit that this statesman knew what he was talking about, and it’s just as obvious that his words should be heeded by the wise of any age.

There is no doubt in my mind that Trump appeals to”the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.” And one has only to look at his first few months in office to realize he works best in secret and at night.

The stench arising from the oval office continues to grow as the #BLOTUS rots the soul of our nation.  Truly, “a murderer is less to be feared.”

John Wesley on the danger we face

John Wesley quote:

There are times to be tolerant. And there are times to be rigorous in the defense the morally accepted standards of civilized behavior. Allowing the #BLOTUS to get away with his lying, nepotism and scoffing at the law is putting us on the wrong path. We are living in a dangerous time for democracy as we know it.

listen! it’s time to speak out

Not technically a founding father but a great president. Abraham Lincoln~ "We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who would pervert the Constitution.":

As the events of the past couple of weeks have unfolded, many of us have been almost paralyzed in the face of such a brazen and blatant attack on the true values of our nation. Now is the time we need to again hear these powerful words of warning from President Abraham Lincoln.

We have a responsibly to protect the Constitution. We must speak out and step up when we see Congress, the Courts, or the President perverting this document. And at this moment the Constitution, and the values it holds forth, are both being attacked and perverted by #BLOTUS and those he has appointed.

We need to protect the Constitution. The responsibility is ours.

 

a warning from history

Those that do not know history are doomed to repeat it. Isn’t that the way that old saying goes?

Civilians face starvation in South Sudan, UN demands access

South Sudan at the breaking point

This piece by William Lambers is the latest story on the unfolding famine threat in South Sudan. Stop Hunger Now is urging all it’s friends and supporters to help raise awareness of this unfolding tragedy, and to support the relief efforts though the charity of your choice. Three million of our family at risk of starvation is simply not acceptable.

Oxfam warns about South Sudan crisis

The charity Oxfam is warning that South Sudan has reached a breaking point as conflict and a collapsed economy take their toll. A severe hunger crisis could threaten over 3 million people by June.

The war between the government and opposition forces has led to major food shortages. The already impoverished nation has been plunged deeper into despair.

Families are becoming increasingly desperate. Without a peace deal, things are likely to get worse. Emma Drew, Head of Humanitarian Programs for Oxfam in South Sudan, says,

What we’re seeing now is families that have spent the past year and a half living on the edge – many have exhausted their food stocks, been displaced from their homes, missed opportunities to plant and farm, and now the economy is showing the strain of a year and a half of conflict.”

The UN World Food Programme (WFP) has been leading the hunger response. The relief mission is one of the most dangerous in the world with the ongoing violence and lack of security. WFP reports three of its aid workers in South Sudan are missing. The three staff members were traveling to a food distribution on April 1st, but WFP has not been able to contact them since.

WFP has to move food around a conflict-torn country with poor roads. Airlifts are used to bring food to some areas. This is difficult and costly. The mission for South Sudan is already low on funding.

Oxfam is urging governments to step up funding for South Sudan. Most of all a peace deal must be achieved. The violence must stop and humanitarian workers must be allowed safe access. Until this happens, hunger will continue to escalate, leaving South Sudan at risk of famine.
