Donald Trump’s War On Children And The American Future For Present Day Greed And Profit, And Based On Pure Racism And Nativism

President Donald Trump has committed many crimes for which he should face justice, and incarceration.

But in many ways, the worst crime of all is his war on children and the American future for present day greed and profit, by a man who has zero compassion, empathy and concern for those who are suffering.

Trump claims to be pro life on abortion, but he is a phony, as he has no concern about children, whether born in America or in other nations.

He is willing to separate young children from their parents, something not done by Franklin D. Roosevelt with the internment of Japanese Americans in World War II.

Thousands of vulnerable children from Central America and elsewhere have been basically kidnapped by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), US Customs and Border Protection, and the Department of Homeland Security, and they are suffering mightily in emotional terms, as well as being poorly treated with inadequate food, clothing and housing, and many have been sexually and physically abused.

There are young children taken from their parents at ages under two years old, who now cannot speak or walk, and are permanently disabled, and will never be normal. To blame parents escaping bloodshed, crime, rape, and death in gang ridden Central America for what has happened requires one to have absolutely no concern for human life and dignity, and anyone who has no concern about the crime against humanity being perpetrated by Donald Trump and his despicable criminal collaborators is indeed an evil, uncaring person.

The only real difference from Nazi concentration camps is that so far as we know, no children have been executed, although about seven children have died in the captive conditions provided by the evil doers who collaborate with Donald Trump and his evil supporters who refuse to speak up for morality, ethics, common decency, and equal justice.

Additionally, Trump has worked to pollute the environment; deny health care to millions; and take no steps to cut the dangers to children in schools besieged by gun nuts who have made our education system captive.

Racial and ethnic minorities have been pushed into further poverty and degradation by a President who utters racial and nativist rhetoric on a regular basis.

The ultimate answer should be for Trump and his band of evil doers to be tried under international law in the Hague, being held accountable for his crimes against humanity!

Donald Trump Comparing Impeachment Probe To Lynching Is Totally Disgraceful And Reprehensible!

Donald Trump has the gall to compare the impeachment probe going on in the House of Representatives to a lynching, demonstrating his total lack of the history of lynching, and his lack of concern for the racism that he continues to display incessantly!

Lynching went on for a century after the Civil War and reached its peak in the post World War I years, with thousands of African Americans, and some Hispanics, Jews, and Catholics also being tortured and murdered and set on fire in a brutal fashion, that was long covered up.

But now there is a Lynching Museum in Montgomery, Alabama, called the National Memorial for Peace and Justice and the Legacy Museum, and there are other Civil Rights Museums that demonstrate through horrible photographs and contemporary accounts the obscene abuse and lack of concern for human life in the American South and much of the Midwest and even California, as well, where African Americans were seen as less than human.

The photos are hard to look at, and the realization that children and large crowds often witnessed these miscarriages of justice, cheered it on, and took human flesh as souvenirs of the “sporting event” they had just participated in or lost all sense of morality, ethics and religiosity by not caring about the suffering of thousands of mostly men, but also some women.

Donald Trump comes across more every day as a totally obscene, disgraceful excuse for a human being, who has no concern about the human suffering that goes on around him in America and in the world at large.

If there was ever a President as deserving of impeachment, conviction, and imprisonment for the crimes he has conducted or endorsed by his incendiary, reckless rhetoric, it is Donald Trump, as no one else, not even Richard Nixon was anywhere near as evil as the 45th President of the United States!

And for Senator Lindsey Graham to defend Trump’s comment is beyond belief, and John McCain would be furious at his former friend for defending Trump!

Two Thirds Of The Trump Term Is Gone: We Must Ensure That His Time In The Presidency Ends On January 20, 2021!

Yesterday, September 20, marked the end of 32 months of the Trump Presidency, two thirds of the entire term of 48 months.

This has been the most tumultuous 32 months in the history of the American Presidency, and with constant attacks on every institution and tradition imaginable, led by a crazed, mentally ill, morally bankrupt and totally evil man and his despicable cabinet and family.

And to imagine his attorneys in court this week declaring that the President cannot be challenged, and cannot be investigated, is an alarm bell in the night of the horrific dangers we are facing.

There is the potential of a new Middle East War, this time with Iran, in the service of a corrupt regime in Saudi Arabia.

There is the potential of a massive economic collapse after the longest economic expansion in American history, caused to a great extent by Donald Trump’s crazy tariff war with China and other nations.

There is the potential of more mass murders with firearms, and no moral leadership on Capitol Hill.

There is the ever present danger of climate change, with protests inspired by young people whose future is doomed if nothing is done to deal with the reality of what is occurring.

There is the power of religion, dividing people, and xenophobia, promoting racism and nativism on a large scale.

There is so much evil occurring, and an entire political party bows to the person who wishes to be a King, while the other party cowers in fear at standing up to the tin horn dictator and holding him accountable to the extent possible.

If Donald Trump is not impeached, it will be a sign to future Presidents of both sides of the political equation that they have been given license to extend the horrors of Donald Trump in the name of their own ambitions, rather than what is proper for the American people.

The fire is burning, and it is time for action, not only by the Democratic Party, but by all good citizens with a conscience and principles, willing to go beyond any personal economic gain that they might be having, and thinking of the nation above their own selfish interests.

Racist, White Nationalist,White Supremacist Donald Trump Has Blood On His Hands, And Anyone Who Still Supports Him Does Too!

It is time to stop having excuses for those who support Donald Trump.

The El Paso and Dayton Massacres are finally a time to come to reality: that anyone who apologizes for, or excuses for, or thinks Donald Trump has viable ideas about race, nativism, white supremacy, white racism, is clearly one himself or herself.

Donald Trump has promoted racial animus for four years now, and has led to the worst outbreak of violence by impressionable young white men, a far greater threat than Islamic terrorism has wrought upon this nation.

Donald Trump talks about an Hispanic invasion, and defies history, that Texas and the Southwest have been Hispanic for centuries, and it was the United States which took half of Mexico away in the mid 19th century. It was the United States which fueled violence and bloodshed in Central America under Ronald Reagan in the 1980s, creating the turmoil in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, which has led to the mass of victims trying to escape bloodshed, violence and terror in those nations, which has fueled desperate women and children to try to escape for their lives, as much as Jews and other refugees in Europe tried to escape Adolf Hitler three quarters of a century ago.

Donald Trump has encouraged violence and inspired crowds of racists, nativists, white supremacists, white nationalists to chant horrible utterances that for Hispanics in America, whether legal or undocumented, make them fear for their lives. And the Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has become no better than a Gestapo in Nazi Germany, rounding up people and separating children from their parents, who are being blamed for wanting to give their children a better life, something anyone who has children would want.

Imagine the horror of those Hispanics in El Paso, who now have to fear that ICE will hunt them down after the massacre, and separate their family members for deportation after such a tragic event! Does any person deserve to have that fear of their government, and yet, this is just the beginning!

Who cares if the economy is going well, although most of it was due to Barack Obama’s stewardship, who actually revived the American economy, and Trump is simply benefiting from that? The economy was great in Nazi Germany under Adolf Hitler, but we know what that led to, mass murder!

When one saw Trump laugh in the Florida Panhandle when someone in the audience said “Shoot Them” after his comment about the so called “Caravan” that never existed, one wonders what kind of message is that to the younger generation. Is it an endorsement of murdering Hispanics or Muslims or Jews or African Americans, who threaten the dominance of white Christians, who will, indeed, be a minority of America in the 2040s and beyond?

It is finally time to say no more excuses! If you, reading this, can justify and defend Donald Trump, you are yourself a racist, nativist, white supremacist, white nationalist, and deserve no defense, as you are a terrible human being who backs the demagogue in the White House, who does not give a whit about you, except to use you as a method to destroy the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the image of the Statue of Liberty.

Were Trump, God Forbid, to be reelected by this chanting mob of despicable human beings, who can say that extermination of “undesirables” would not be the next step? Look in your heart and spend some time thinking about that and repent for your sins!

The Abuses Of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) And Border Patrol Agents Is Outrageous!

It is now clear that there are a multitude of agents who work for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and for the Border Patrol, who are abusing migrant women and children in Texas and Florida and elsewhere, including verbal, emotional, and physical abuse, including the deaths of at least six children.

There is racism, misogyny, and sexual abuse going on, and these agents do not speak foreign languages, and ignore the sufferings of children who will be scarred for life by their horrible experiences.

Most of these people have tried to escape from bloodshed, persecution, violence, and abuse in their Central Americans nations, and yet are being denied the right to apply for asylum, and are now living through a literal nightmare often worse than what they escaped.

This is an outrage, against the Bill of Rights and condemns Donald Trump as the worst abuser of civil rights and liberties of any President of the United States.

The racism, nativism, misogyny, white supremacy, and purely disgusting human behavior being seen and reported is a scar on the American nation, and there is a dire need for a quick firing of at least a large portion of ICE and the Border Patrol, and a rapid reorganization of those agencies, which are presently perceived as Nazi and Fascist in their image and actions.

On July 4, Independence Day, this horrific situation is a stain on the American celebration of its 243rd birthday!

Ronald Reagan, in his last speech as President a day before he retired from the Presidency in 1989, glowed about the virtues of immigration, which he said had made us a greater and stronger nation, and he spoke of the glory of the Statue of Liberty, representing open arms for the refugees from all nations, escaping bloodshed, persecution, and oppression, and starting a new life in the haven on earth known as America!

It is a certainty that Ronald Reagan, the paragon of conservatism, would be appalled at what Donald Trump has done on immigration, and the fact that the Republican Party officeholders have nothing to say, condemns all of them to the garbage heap of history, as having stood by and ignored the massive violation of human rights, and actual war crimes being committed by ICE and the Border Patrol, by criminal elements that have bragged about and ridiculed the sufferings of innocent men, women and children on Facebook.

One can be sure that Karma will visit these evil forces, and eventually, many will be held accountable as among the worst elements ever to exist in American government in modern times!

A Different America In 2040: More Young Minorities, More Muslims Than Jews, Older Average Age Population

In just one more generation, America will be a very different nation than it was when I was born at the time of the Battle of the Bulge (December 1944) in World War II’s last few months.

This blogger was born in New York City as a minority, a Jew in a primarily Protestant white America, with large percentages of Italian and Irish Catholics as the so called “minority”, along with Jews.

Yes, there were some African Americans in my graduating class, along with a few Puerto Ricans and Asian Americans, and even one native American young man.

But the idea that a century or so after my birth, in the 2040s, that we would have a population of aging white people in a nation rapidly rising in average age, and with a majority of young people being Latinos, Asians and African American ethnicity, and with more Muslims than Jews in the population, is indeed astounding.

But this is not something to mourn over, but see it as a challenge, to make a nation truly international in origin, not just from Europe, prosper and move ahead toward future challenges with optimism.

So the future is NOT the racist, nativist, white supremacist, antisemitic, and Islamophobic message sent out by Trump supporters, who also wish to control women and gays and lesbians, but rather to embrace the diversity of our nation and lead the world in tolerance.

This is something I wish for as I am now part of the aging population that wants a great future for the nation he loves!

“Pro Life” Religious Extremists Are Totalitarian Minded Hypocrites Who Do Not Care About Poor Children Once They Are Born!

The extreme right wing Christians who are now declaring war on abortion rights of women are totalitarian minded hypocrites who do NOT care about the lives of poor children once they are born.

They are pro birth, but not truly pro life, as many of them support capital punishment, and have no desire or interest in supporting single mothers, abused mothers, raped mothers, incest mothers, and are from states that historically have always mistreated the poor.

Yet they claim to be following the teachings of Jesus, when many are them are actually antisemites, as well as racists, nativists, and misogynists. Their only interest in the religion of Judaism is to convince them to become Christians, and even at the time when Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the evangelical preachers were preaching the virtues of their extremist views of Christianity, rather than supporting the Jewish faith.

Evangelical right wingers are not true friend of Jews, or any other faith, or of the dignity of women to control their own lives, and particularly when they are the victims of violence through rape and incest, and when they are themselves children as young as 11 or 12.

The role of extremist religion and women’s rights continues to be a battleground, and anyone who believes in the dignity of women must fight this massive campaign to outlaw legal abortion, as it is designed to harm women who will still get abortions underground, endangering their lives.

This must be a key campaign issue in the Presidential and Congressional Elections of 2020!

Donald Trump Advocates Black Spiked Wall On Mexican Border, Demonstrates How Evil And Mentally Deranged He Is!

Donald Trump is becoming clearly more mentally deranged every day, as now when he advocates building a Border Wall with Mexico with a specific design.

Trump has openly said that the wall should be black steel and have spikes, with the goal of making it impossible for anyone to scale the wall, as the black steel would be too hot, and the spikes would be sharp and cause massive injuries and blood letting to occur.

How sickening and outrageous such a thought is even crossing one’s mind, let alone being expressed, as this utterance by the 45th President!

And let us not forget that at a recent rally, when someone in the crowd advocated shooting migrants trying to cross the border, Trump laughed and said only in the Florida Panhandle (where the rally occurred), would someone come up with such a thought! But the point was Trump should have immediately become angry and condemned the sick person who uttered such a thought in the crowd. Instead, the crowd laughed along with Trump, so one can imagine that many of these excuses for human beings, including women and racial minorities, not just white males, would willingly participate in mass murder, as occurred in the Holocaust under Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany!

What has happened to the moral compass of America, which clearly is a very sick nation! We have millions of racists, nativists, misogynists, antisemites, all willing to sacrifice human lives. At the same time, they are working to promote a so called Pro Life agenda for fetuses, but with no concern about the children born to poor mothers, and providing no medical, housing, or food support to many of these unfortunate families, who live in backwards states that abuse and mistreat their own population. But this is done in the name of their hypocritical religious views, which are NOT the teachings of Jesus Christ!

Donald Trump Says America Is Full, No Room For Immigrants: A Denial Of The American Dream And Tradition

Donald Trump says that America is full, has no room for immigrants.

This is a denial of the American dream and American tradition.

America is, and always has been, a land of immigrants from Alexander Hamilton and many others in the late 18th century onward.

America has not been just a place for migration by well to do and successful people, but also for poor, deprived, and personally threatened by their religion, their culture, their nationality, and other personal characteristics, who came here and succeeded and contributed to the American future.

America is the last and best hope for people oppressed and denied their basic human rights and the possibility of advancement and success where they migrated from.

The Statue of Liberty is the symbol of what America is all about, and if not for the open hand, many people living in America today would not be here, since we are all immigrants or descendants of immigrants, except for native Americans who go back many millenniums and had their basic human rights denied to them by people from other continents and nationalities who came here.

Donald Trump would not be here if his grandfather had not migrated from Germany, and we NEED immigrants to enrich and contribute to the American future, and this includes mothers and children escaping from poverty, violence, and oppression, as our ancestors were when they came here.

So the answer to Donald Trump is to reject his racism, nativism, xenophobia, and white supremacist beliefs by removing him and his ilk from office, either by Congressional action or by the vote of the masses of Americans who repudiate his hatred and evil nature in the Presidential Election of 2020 19 months from now, and then prosecute him for his crimes against humanity.

Mounting Threat Of Bloodshed And Violence Encouraged By Donald Trump’s Utterances That Critics Are “Enemies Of The People”

Donald Trump is clearly encouraging right wing extremists, who are white supremacists, racists, nativists, and antisemites in many cases, to threaten opposition Democratic politicians and the news media.

The news that a Coast Guard employee, who calls himself a skinhead, and has gathered massive arms and ammunition to begin an assault against Democratic politicians and cable news anchors, is shocking. Fortunately, he was arrested in the last few days.

The thought that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and other members of Congress, and cable news anchors including Joe Scarborough and Chris Hayes of MSNBC, and Van Jones and Don Lemon of CNN, were targeted, shows that mentally ill people are capable, with the encouragement of Donald Trump that critics are “enemies of the people”, to commit bloodshed and violence.

For encouragement of such mayhem, alone, Donald Trump should be drummed out of office, as he is demonstrating that he is a dictator with no moral or ethical qualms about grabbing power on the backs of dangerous, unstable people.
