"...On this Continent,
a new nation, conceived in Liberty,
and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are...testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure."

2020.09.01 - Threat of History Repeating 1-2
  • 1
    I’m gravely troubled and anxious because horror seems to be on the cusp of happening again --- with me believing that our annihilation is being prompted, planned, and molded by a force (and number) so evil that none are ready.

    Audio: Donald Trump, President of the United States, when asked to,  "Share one or two of your favorite verses from [ the sacred and divinely-inspired scripture ] of the Bible -- your favorite book of all time." And, "Do you lean more towards the teachings of the Old Testament (the Law) or New Testament (salvation by Grace and Love through Jesus Christ)?"

    On September 22, 1906, an estimated mob of 1,000 White men began a 3-day rampage through the streets of downtown Atlanta, Georgia, murdering and torturing men, women and children of the African American community, while shouting out the battle cry, “Save our women! Kill the Niggers!

    Representation of how a mob of 1,000 units of roaming, vengeful, murderous persons might look if assembled into groups or regiments. It also demonstrates the sheer massive numbers that can be mobilized when sparked by a public platform of hatred.

1st President in U.S. History to Openly and Publicly Hail, Celebrate, and Promote White Supremacy
It's a New Era in Time.   Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States, became the first U.S. President in American history to openly, publicly, and unapologetically promote WHITE SUPREMACY while sitting as Head of State.
and then he played golf


Mr. Trump, who is prolific in using the expansive network of the [information highway] as a tool for reaching millions of Americans (as well as a global audience), to influence and dominate social discourse, and exert sway over the very thing viewed as reality, published a startling video from his Twitter account on Sunday, June 28, 2020, hailing and screaming out "WHITE SUPREMACY!".

With the video instantly broadcast to millions, Mr. Trump offered praise to those featured, describing them as "great people". Soon after sharing his praise, Mr. Trump --- the President quietly removed the video. And in the absence of a sober and public apology to the nation (which was never expected, as one must have a certain amount of deliberateness of intent to simply post a video), the President's staff offered a "public excuse" --- he didn't hear that part --- the part that we can't unhear.

In the days following, Mr. Trump was quoted as saying, "Black Lives Matter" is a [symbol to hate] [symbol of hate].

The President appears to be "On Game" and history informs us of the direction in which he is steering the course of the America people. It is very disheartening to know that this President stands in mockery of our quest to achieve parity and full human rights, by cruelly portraying our rally cry, "Black Lives Matter", as being something evil --- before the entire world. What sort of hocus-pocus, sorcery, and mind-control trickery is this? Why does he insist that our stand be against a blockade of murderous hatred, rather than a reasoned people and nation?

With the power of the presidency, Mr. Trump is using his opportunity to stoke racial hatred and race wars, using internet media platforms to dogwhistle calls-to-action, hoping to invoke the presence and roll-out of armed citizens standing in opposition and threat to other Americans.

U.S. Constitution:  [ Governance Today ]
July 10, 2020
The U.S. Federal Government (including the Executive Branch) was Established by the Constitution, Solely and Specifically to Oversee and Protect the General Welfare of a Nation of Sovereign States and All of the People Therein from Common Threats
The Preamble | U.S. Constitution
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Donald Trump is creating unprecedented history...
Unlike any president before him, Donald Trump has great resistance to the spirit and intent of the Constitution, displaying a strong consistency for disavowing the General Welfare of the people, leaving state leadership begging & pleading the President to honor his Constitutional responsibilities.

This COVID19-inspired plea by Phoenix, Arizona mayor in 2020 is eerily similar...

...to the pleas of the mayor of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria in 2017.
