NoBells T Rump
To begin with, don’t confuse Nobel, the dynamite inventor after whom the Nobel Prize is named, with NoBells, the nuclear option, “Fire and Fury” guy.
Just as Nobel winners have contributed to the well-being of mankind through their exceptional intellectual, humanitarian and scientific contributions, NoBells T Rump has distinguished himself in equal measure, sorta. He’s succeeded in benefiting only one kind of man: Himself.
There will be No Church Bells for a man who describes churchgoers as “schmucks”, brags about sexually assaulting women and who uses hatred —bald, unmitigated hatred — as a bargaining chip and deplorable badge of honor.
No Humanitarian Bells for a man who separates infant children from their parents, imprisons innocent asylum seekers and, in his proposed budget, eliminates “Meals on Wheels” for shut-in seniors.
No Peace Bells for an advocate of autocracy, kleptocracy, an acolyte to tyrants and canceler of the Iran Nuclear deal.
No Economic Bells for the instigator of debilitating trade wars becoming our “Prince of Tariffs”, terminator of the Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership; the benefactor of mammoth tax breaks for himself and fellow billionaires and the architect of this country’s largest deficit in recorded history.
No Diplomatic Bells for a man who undermines our NATO alliances while exalting tyrants and castigating our trusted, democratically-governed allies.
No Security Bells for a man who openly shares America’s secrets with our most threatening global adversary and who insists on using an unsecured personal cell phone.
No Smart Bells for a man who’s never read a book, thinks Frederick Douglass is still alive and who uses child-like vengeance as a governing philosophy.
No Climate Bells for a science denier calling climate change a “Chinese hoax”; withdrawer from the Paris Accords aimed at lowering greenhouse gas emissions and terminator of dozens of important environmental protections for air, water and wildlife.
No Democracy Bells for a blatant conspirator, “Russia if you’re listening…”, with our foremost global adversary to undermine his opponents presidential campaign and his admitted efforts to solicit “Oppo research” from the leader of a foreign government.
No Civil Rights Bells for a white supremacist, architect of the “Birther Movement”, scion of a Klansman, apologist for Neo-Nazis, subject of a rare Congressional rebuke for racism, and documented perpetrator of racially discriminatory housing practices.
No Military Bells for a coward, a five-time draft dodger, demeanor of the valorous feats of a revered American war hero and a belittler of the dangers associated with life-threatening, wartime combat.
No Integrity Bells for a pathological liar, a progenitor of “alternative facts”, and the most untruthful president in recorded history.
No Constitution Bells for a blatant violator of the Emoluments Clause, believer that Article II bestows upon him unlimited powers, recruiter of foreign powers to aid him in his bid for a second term, demeanor of the three co-equal branches of government and the importance of their separate, but equal powers, subverter of a free press calling it “the enemy of the people”, and a defamer of the inviolability of freedom of speech.
NoBells T Rump.
Nothing he’s done is a ringing endorsement for competence or compassion. Unmitigated incompetence, deliberate cruelty toward his fellow human beings and a breathtaking case of psychopathic narcissism ring true as his defining characteristics.
NoBells T Rump is dynamiting the pillars of democracy that make America Great.
America’s voting majority needs a legitimate, honest, law-abiding president.
