The State Of The Union

The State of the Union is “spiritually-morally” upside-down, because President Donald J. Trump is America’s Greatest National Disaster! Hence, if you thought acts of nature (Hurricanes, Mud Slides, Floods, and Tornados) and individuals driving cars without driver’s licenses were disastrous, sorry to inform you: President Trump tops all of these calamities.

February is Black History Month: An historic legacy celebration of great individuals of color from the “S-Hole” Continent of Africa who were brought to America as “free-slave-labor” in order to build America’s infrastructure. Just to mention a few: Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Benjamin Banneker, Mary McCloud Bethune, George Washington Carver, Madame C.J. Walker, Booker T. Washington, Ethel Waters, and Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. Additionally, there is one “Great American” who is White that every Black American should always remember, and never forget, because no other White man would have had the “spiritual-moral-courage” to do what “President Lyndon B. Johnson” did at that time in America’s turbulent history: orchestrate the passage of The 1964 Civil Rights Act and The 1965 Voting Rights Act. Most importantly, President Johnson instituted a national governmental “War on Poverty.” A lot has been said and will be said about (LBJ), but God-fearing individuals give no place to the devil. Therefore, because of LBJ’s contributions to American society in “morally-trying-times,” his image should be carved on Mount Rushmore! Of course, President Trump is legislatively attempting to undo all of it, by “Making America Great Again.” OOPS, I meant: “White Privilege Oriented Again” as though it ever stopped being that way!

The State of the Union, when you get right down to it, is divided spiritually and morally along racial/ethnic lines. Simply because some Whites want “White Privilege,” while Blacks and other permanent-tan-minorities just want to be included. Christian Right Evangelical Leadership and Republican Party leadership have given rise to the most “spiritually-morally-bankrupt-despicable” individual to ever occupy the greatest political leadership position in the world. Moreover, Republican-Co-Conspirators, as well as President Trump, please remember this: “All that glitters is not gold.” For certain, we all know that the wheels of JUSTICE grind ever so slowly, but ever so fine; and when justice runs its course, as it will, it is spiritual concept, all “gones” are not good byes. Instead, they will become the after-shocks of destruction for democratic institutional norms in the form of “Spiritual-Retribution” for sin! “Be not deceived: God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6:7). Christian Right Evangelicals, you spiritually understand, but lack the moral courage to practice what you preach and teach in God’s presence.

The Russians do not need to militarily invade America, simply because the Russian mentality is already “alive and well” in the psyche of too many Americans, especially in some who operate in The White House! In fact, beyond a shadow of a doubt, everyone needs to understand this: “Corruption corrupts.” And, absolute power produces absolute corruption. Moreover, President Trump was a convenient leadership vehicle for a corrupt leadership mentality to come to the forefront and flourish in the Republican Party. Traditional Republican Party principles of freedom and justice for all was compromised (or corrupted) in 1964 when Republicans embraced The Southern Strategy. Of course, Christian Right Evangelicals have been spiritually corrupted for a long, long time, because of their “love of money” which, in turn, is the root of all evil (1 Timothy 6:10). Basically, the desire of Christian Right Evangelicals for absolute power was transformed into “Love of Money.” At the same time, the 11:00 o’clock AM worship hour on Sunday Morning is/has been, and seemingly will always remain, the most “racially” segregated hour in American society. “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:” (Proverbs 23:7). For spiritual understanding, perhaps most Whites fear that a “spiritual-change might come over them”: “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” (Amos 3:3). The Republican Party and Christian Right Evangelicals are proving themselves to be the offspring of CAIN because, seemingly, they have made a deal with the devil in all of his earthly glory. As a matter of fact, President Trump became the face of the “Birther-Movement” and he demanded that President Obama produce his Birth Certificate. What goes around comes around (Karma); and, now, the new reality is that the shoe is on the other foot. As a result, because of President Trump’s unstable, and down right, “unorthodox-leadership-personality-mentality-style,” the American people should demand that he take a PROFESSIONAL “sanity-test” with empirical test results released for public edification.

Christian Right Evangelicals, prior to voting for the “Trumpster,” you should have explained the spiritual concept and moral meaning of social democracy to Donald J. Trump. First of all, individuals work for themselves. No individual works for another individual in a democratic society. More importantly, no God-fearing individual will give a “loyalty oath” to become a participant in governmental corruption. Without a doubt, corruption is about MOTIVE and so is sin! Individuals simply work with other individuals, not for them, because each individual works for his/her own family. President Trump and like-minded-Republicans (e.g., Judge Roy Moore): chattel slavery ended on January 1st, 1863. Hence, in the case, of the U.S. Presidency, the President governs (works) on behalf of the country (American People). Moreover, he hires individuals who are willing to do likewise. For certain, The Office of the Presidency is not intended to be a private “money-making-business-venture” that gives a President the power to “spiritually-morally-bankrupt” the culture as well as democratic institutions “for the love of power and money.” Maybe this is why President Trump has filed financial bankruptcy four times. Instead, of setting a moral example, ethical standards of behavior, and honoring “time-honored-proven-traditional-standards” of human decency, public service and civility, President Trump has trashed ethical-moral-standards. Unfortunately, given his public leadership behavior, he has provided “empirical-confirmation-evidence” pertaining to who Republicans are: A Political Party of spiritually/morally confused individuals! Christian Right Evangelicals, where are your family values and moral conscience? Republican politicians, where is your “statesman-like-moral-conscience” concerning “Law and Order” NOW? Trashing the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), an institution that has protected America from foreign and domestic enemies, is now trashed in order to protect an UNWORTHY, IMMORAL, BIGOTED President who desires to be a dictator in the world’s greatest social democracy. Question: Are Devin Nunez and Speaker Paul Ryan Moles for a foreign government? “Be not deceived: evil communication corrupts good manners.” (1 Corinthians 15:33) Selah!
