Hear these words from the prophet Jeremiah, Chapters 11 and 12
“The Lord said to me, “Proclaim all these words in the towns of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem: ‘Listen to the terms of this covenant and follow them. From the time I brought your ancestors up from Egypt until today, I warned them again and again, saying, “Obey me.” But they did not listen or pay attention; instead, they followed the stubbornness of their evil hearts. So I brought on them all the curses of the covenant I had commanded them to follow but that they did not keep.’”
Therefore this is what the Lord says about the people of Anathoth who are threatening to kill you, saying, “Do not prophesy in the name of the Lord or you will die by our hands”— You are always righteous, Lord, when I bring a case before you. Yet I would speak with you about your justice: Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why do all the faithless live at ease? You have planted them, and they have taken root; they grow and bear fruit. You are always on their lips but far from their hearts. Yet you know me, Lord; you see me and test my thoughts about you.
I am done with this administration. I want Trump impeached as of yesterday.
Remember how Trump sucked the air out of the room during the Republican debates? Remember him humiliating Hillary while talking to her? They are politicians. They signed up for this. I could even allow that we as a nation signed up for this, though I did not vote for him.
American children did not sign up for this. The people of North Korea, South Korea, or Japan did not sign up for this. The people of Puerto Rico did not sign up for this.
What is “this”? “This” is death by the President of the United States’ hand. Honestly, I’m not given to hyperbole. I am serious, and now I am mad!
This is today’s news, just one day’s news.
1) President Trump gleefully tweeted today that he “… told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man…” “…Save your energy Rex, we’ll do what has to be done!” “Being nice to Rocket Man hasn’t worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I will not fail”.
No leader of any country with nuclear capabilities can ever suggest that negotiations are over. If negotiations are over, that only leaves the military option… the nuclear military option. As we now know, any military solution with North Korea risks nuclear weapons and mass casualties , possible destruction of the planet. That is the ultimate failure. How can anyone make the case for freedom (remember, America used to stand for freedom) if people die in the hundreds of thousands?
2) That same man, the leader of our country, said that a group of America citizens who are without food, water, power, and internet have “Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help,” Trump tweeted in part. “They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort.” She had just begged for help from anyone would help because the leader of her country couldn’t be bothered for a week about her plight. She is quoted as saying, “This is not a ‘good news’ story. This is a ‘People are dying’ story”. Those deaths, yes, deaths are on his head. We, as American citizens, will be complicit in more deaths if we let him stay in office. I, for one, refuse to let that happen.
3) The final straw came today, when the CHIP program was allowed to lapse. Why will it be out of money? It happened because Congress can not deal with anything but Trump. He has sucked the air out of Congress’ time to govern. Mitch McConnell in the Senate and Paul Ryan in the House have gone along with the President’s agenda, and had to deal with his outrageousness, and had to set up committees to deal with his behavior, leaving precious little time to actually govern. I was happy watching the circus of Republican ineptitude at his command until now. When the healthcare of American children is threatened, this game must end. We hardly pay enough lip service to “children as our future” as it is. Now, we’re going to prevent 9 million children from getting medical and dental services because we couldn’t get to them! The people who choose what the government will do, chose poorly.
Enough is enough. They should all be removed — the President, The Speaker of the House, and the Majority Leader of the Senate — before they do any more damage.
Mr. McConnell can be contacted at tel:(202) 224-2541. Mr. Ryan can be contacted at ph: (202) 225-3031.
Still resisting with Peace, but angrily…
