COUNTDOWN: As of today, only 1,040 more days left in this horrible administration’s term in office…
As the above illustration from an issue of the German publication Der Spiegel clearly and controversially shows, Donald Trump has little regard for the Statue of Liberty or the ideals it represents. For, at the base of that iconic statue lies a plaque bearing the inscription, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” This beautiful inscription, taken from a poem called “The New Colossus” written by Emma Lazarus back in 1883, has long symbolized not only the Statue of Liberty but the ideals of this country as well. For, with rare exception, the United States has always welcomed immigrants fleeing political persecution to emigrate here. But now Donald Chump has chosen to begin a program of mass deportations, by instructing ICE agents to seize and deport, without trial, hundreds of thousands if not millions of undocumented residents.
The swiftness and brutal nature of these Trump-ordered apprehensions is highly reminiscent of the way Soviet KGB officers would swoop down on unsuspecting Soviet dissidents to lead them away. It is nothing for us to be proud of today! With his Muslim Ban I and his new Muslim Ban II, Chump has chosen to chuck all those lofty and noble sentiments of goodwill toward needy, desperate refugees in favor of bowing to paranoid extremism. As expected, Chump’s actions abound with hypocrisy and ignorance. His claim of wanting to protect us fom “radical Islamic terrorism” is ridiculous on a number of levels. First, immigrants go through a lengthy vetting process to determine their eligibility. Srcond, one of the most important reasons our original colonists settled here was to escape religious persecution in their own country and to be able to [practice it freely here. Chump, whose real gods are wealth and power, is at best a nominal Christian who is aiming to exclude Muslims from entering this country. He fails to recognize that this singling out of another faith for persecution is a contradiction of Christianity! Goaded on by the ultra-nationalistic Steve Bannon, Chump has chosen to turn his back on legitimate refugees as well as long time undocumented residents who have lived here, worked, and paid taxes for decades in some cases. Rampant with apologists, like Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Kellyanne Con-job and the newer spokesperson Sarah “Huckster” Sanders, Chump and Bannon have chosen to create a distraction by flooding the airwaves with fabrications about President Obama ordering wiretaps on Chump as well as the necessity of these Muslim bans to preserve national security, regardless of the negative effects on a number of innocent immigrant families. In a recent raid by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), for example, a father of several daughters was forced from his car while driving the girls to school and was apprehended and driven away by them, leaving one daughter sobbing in the back seat of the family’s car. Another example was the deportation of an undocumented mother of a pair of teenage sons, who had resided here for two decades. Yet another was the deportation of a young man for wearing tattoos in a foreign language on his arms – supposedly evidence of his being a gang member. NONE of these people were terrorists or allied with terrorists, and NONE were “bad, bad dudes” as Chump is so fond of saying. Consequently, NONE of them should have been rounded up or deported! Now these heartless bastards are even toying with the idea of separating mothers from their children once they have crossed the border illegally and putting them in different detention centers – unbelievable! The mass deportation Chump has unleashed is un-American and dictatorial. It is a brutal and unprecedented abuse of power that must be resisted by every sane and patriotic American! Yet another example of how cruel, rash, reckless, and INCOMPETENT this current administration is was the way 46 U.S. attorneys were abruptly fired by Chump late Friday afternoon. One of them, Preet Bharara, had even been assured by Chump last November in a private meeting that he was doing a good job, and that the then President-elect wanted him to stay on in his position! So much for the reliability of Donald Trump’s word…Trump, as well as the Republicans who continue to blindly support him, MUST be thrown out of office at the earliest opportunity! Lying Republican House Speaker Paul RUIN (I call him “Ruin” rather than Ryan as there is strong evudence that his economic policies and budget will absolutely RUIN the country) was out promoting his preposterous “The American Health Care Act” on all the Sunday talk shows, claiming it to be a Patients Choice bill. Just look at what this new Republican-supported “Wealth Care” bill will do if passed:
1). It will knock 24 MILLION people off of health care (according to figures just released by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office)!
2). It will give the wealthiest 1% of the country a MASSIVE tax break – hence, my calling it the Wealth Care Act!
3). Paul RUIN met very recently for a $10,000 a plate fundraiser with health insurance company executives to elect even more Republican candidates in 2018. This is proof positive he is a mere shill for the insurance industry and is not thinking at all of the well-being of the rest of the country!
I know of NO sane American taxpayer who would “choose” such a cruel and heartlessly abominable monstrosity – it shows how completely OUT OF TOUCH with the public RUIN and his CON-servative Republican caucus really is!
RUIN claims to be a devout Catholic. If that is true, he should burn all of his treasured Ayn Rand GARBAGE and instead read the Bible, namely Matthew 25: 31-46!
That is why the 2018 midterm elections are so very important – it will be our first opportunity to teach these authoritarian, corrupted CON-servative Republican types a solid lesson! For this is a cruel administration we should all be ashamed of! Until 2018 then, the key is for everybody to RESIST! FOCUS! ORGANIZE! REPLACE!
