President Trump should be thankful for living in the United States of America, still a free country. If he had been living in the Napoleonic era his eyes would end up staring blankly into the sky from the bottom of a basket. Napoleonic era – WikipediaGuillotine – Wikipedia
The Senate impeachment trial facts are convincing, yet most Republican Senators look the other way. The trial is about free speech. One side uses free speech to spread lies. The other side uses its freedom of speech, to tell the truth, How can the justice system, or anyone uncover a lie? The GOP remains loyal to Trump. The GOP’s silence about domestic terrorism is deafening!
“Hannah Arendt spoke about extraordinary cases in which an entire society is being lied to consistently. She said that the consequences of such lying are “not that you believe the lies, but rather that nobody believes anything any longer. This is because lies, by their very nature, have to be changed, and a lying government has constantly to rewrite its own history. On the receiving end you get not only one lie – a lie which you could go on for the rest of your days – but you get a great number of lies, depending on how the political wind blows.”
The Republican-controlled Senate does not want to support impeachment. Why do they want to hang on to the lies that have been spread to the voters? What are they afraid of, truth?
Speakers at Trump campaign rallies have been spreading the lie about the election being stolen from Trump by the Communist-Democrats until they have millions of people believing and got them mad enough to riot.
The truth could start a massive new lawsuit. Thousands of people will want to share in a class-action suit. They will all claim they went to Trump campaign rallies as innocent voters and came away feeling the election got stolen from Trump. The Republican National Committee could be sued for every nickel it has.
Who knows? In this crazy world, that might be why there are so many Republicans remaining quiet. Just like the church in Germany remained quiet until Hitler came after the church, then it was too late. We have to live with our decisions, that is why truth and words matter so much.
The United States, as we know it, could start to heal with the truth. The people could remain divided and filled with hate for years to come if the lies remain.
When I saw the attached article this morning, I knew I had to say something. To be quiet at times like this would be un-American, not patriotic.
This is a good history lesson. The GOP all the way back to Nixon considers voters dumb and do not remember the dirty tricks of the past. The icing on the cake is ” THEY WANT US TO BELIEVE GOD SENT US TRUMP”
I have also attached files that have a history of what happened in Germany during Hitler’s time. There was silence. Then the world paid a high price for it. We live in a democracy. If our democracy will survive, it needs people who all work together for its well-being. This nation got divided down the middle, with one side hating the other for the simple reason they disagree with their ideas. It appears politics has become a power struggle. The religious right is supporting this. They feel God has sent Donald Trump to save the United States. I hope for their sake. They are not trading their souls for a few judicial appointments to keep their friends with power in place.
Goebbels’ Ministry of Propaganda issued threats and applied intense pressure on the Churches to voice support for the war, and the Gestapo banned Church meetings for a few weeks. In the first few months of the war, the German Churches complied. No denunciations of the invasion of Poland, or the Blitzkrieg were issued. On the contrary, Bishop Marahrens gave thanks to God that the Polish conflict was over, and “that He has granted our armies a quick victory.” The Ministry for Church Affairs suggested that Church bells across Germany ring for a week in celebration, and that pastors and priests “flocked to volunteer as chaplains” for the German forces. The Catholic bishops asked their followers to support the war effort: “We appeal to the faithful to join in ardent prayer that God’s providence may lead this war to blessed success for Fatherland and people.” Likewise, the Evangelicals proclaimed: “We unite in this hour with our people in intercession for our Fuhrer and Reich, for all the armed forces, and for all who do their duty for the fatherland.”
HAS THIS WORLD TODAY FORGOT WHAT HAPPENED IN THAT WAR?
The trouble is that once you see it, you can’t un-see it. And once you’ve seen it, keeping quiet, saying nothing, becomes as political an act as speaking out. There’s no innocence. Either way, you’re accountable. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/bolton-says-
The movie Mississippi Burning depicts what happened in the state of Mississippi, the USA in the 1960s.
History has repeated itself many times in the past. This election year we must think seriously about how we vote. We do not want to set the hate thy neighbor gears in motion to repeat the horrible atrocities humans have done to each other in the past.
The United States was a democracy. It is supposed to be a democratic form of government. There’ has always been the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, and the independent party.
When President Obama got elected to office, the Republican Party’s leadership swore they would do absolutely nothing that would help his presidency. We started losing our democratic form of government at that time.
Today, with social media, hate groups are encouraged to act, creating division in the country. Four years ago, the nation got divided by lies spread on social networks. The country recently got more divided over the Coronavirus, wearing a mask or not, global warming, even the reason for forest fires etc. The leaders want this country devided to control it better.
The greatest commandment in the bible is Love Thy Neighbor. Hate has divided the country. If you love your neighbor today, you’re considered a wimp.
The president considers Russia his friend, and the Democratic party his enemy. A few decades ago, democrats were called liberal as a derogative term. Today they are also called socialistic, left-wing radicals, terrorists. This un-American slander continues to be spread all of the world through social media. If this continues, our form of government and our legal system will collapse.
The voters must put the citizens back in control of government. It is time for the “my way or the highway politicians” to hit the road.
The Greatest Commandment …30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.
If you say I love my neighbor, I just hate his politics. You should not be living in the United States, you should be living in Russia or China, the leader decides your politics for you.
In this country we should work together for the good of all the citizens living here.
Soldiers have to torture and murder people under orders from their hate-filled commanding officers, here is a good example of that.
