A Very Open Letter to U.S. Congress

Dear Members of Congress:

To say I am quite disappointed with you as a body, and with some in particular, would be the ultimate understatement.  You have been shockingly ineffective in all good ways and reeking of betraying, backstabbing, low-blowing, tantrum throwing, shameful individuals walking among you.  Unbelievable.

How many of you knew that President Trump wasn’t under investigation but allowed media to spread the false rumor that he was?  Did you ever step forward and announce to the world that was untrue?  Or did you gleefully allow the public to believe a lie and watch as so many then judged the president based on that falsehood?  Worse, how many of you were part of keeping the false illusion going?  How many of you slyly made suggestive comments knowing how the public would take them due to the previous lie tainting their reactions and opinions?

Shameful doesn’t touch what I perceive of what you all, with exception, have done.  You have been deceitful in so many ways.  Yes, even you, who turned your heads and pretended it had nothing to do with you – are guilty of deceit because you allowed – by your silence – an outright lie or distortion be presented as the truth.

Let’s be simple.

Congressman X and Congresswoman X were at dinner together.  Someone that doesn’t like one or both starts a rumor that they are seeing each other romantically.  You know differently.  You were sitting close enough to hear & knew it was a working dinner.  You also knew there was other staff that had merely gotten up from the table briefly for the restroom, taking a call or whatever reason.  You know and you say nothing.  You are guilty of the rumor as well.  You have allowed it to continue by your silence.

Do I need to spell it out or have you figured out what the example is suggesting? 

Those of you, who have not spread the lie, are still guilty because you know the truth (or suspect it) and have done nothing to put a halt to the outright lies and innuendoes that are meant to taint and destroy the president because you don’t like him either.

How would you feel if your career (or entire life) was destroyed by lies simply because people didn’t like you and they got enough media coverage to make the masses believe that lie?  After all, as we all know, the lie is always SHOUTED OUT and the correction, if any, is a meek whisper hidden amid the pages or reporting.

I can’t remember how many times I have heard some of your members admit there has been no evidence of collusion with the Russians only to follow it by something to the effect – that is why we need an investigation.  Do you know how irrational you sound?

Some have brought up Benghazi hearings.  There is a difference.  We know there was an attack.  We know four people died.  We know certain people lied about the video.  We know someone is responsible.  We know information has been hidden from us.

Do you see the difference yet?

The Benghazi investigation began with an actual incident.  Something actually happened.

The Russian collusion investigation is based on what?  A collusion incident didn’t happen and an investigation ensued.  Instead, an investigation ensued to look for an incident.  If you don’t see the irony in that or understand the danger of such inappropriate use of power – you are part of the danger to our free society.

It’s easy to make an innocent situation look otherwise, if one has a mind to do so.  It’s easy for words to be twisted, taken out of context and dissected to mean something totally different than what the person meant.  Easy.  And you in Congress seem to be among those who are making it even easier. 

Where are you when your president is being openly lied about? 

Where are you when some of your members are shouting that articles of impeachment are being presented?  Just like those members, whom I believe to be acting unethically, you know that many will either be hopefully ignoring facts or ignorant of the facts.  You know, but  you do nothing as the members go on television and get in front of those mics.  You allow them, by silence and lack of action, to make claims untrue and unproven.

Where are you when they try to claim that Trump is mentally ill?  (Fear mongering)  Have you noticed that many, of those throwing that claim out there, actually give the appearance of having some sort of problem themselves?  Many of us have certainly noticed.

Where have you been when members of Congress try to suggest Trump is disrespectful, while they themselves have been and are being disrespectful?

Where have you been?

With exception – you have been allowing the lies, distortions and disrespect to flow through the halls of Congress.  You have been as guilty, if silent, as any member that has lied, twisted words & thrown out innuendoes to suggest a lie.  You have allowed it to be what people think.  So you have allowed it to happen.

I could continue, but will, instead, move on to a few other points.

Should any of you politicians take the time to look beyond your ideology, as well as hate and dislike of OUR president and the opposite party, you might find that Trump has some excellent ideas that can get us out of the mess that politicians have made.  And, though it’s obvious that many of you don’t want Trump to succeed at anything, you might want to think beyond that.  If Trump’s ideas win, or ignite ideas that are winners, you all win too.  People will remember that good happened because you supported and voted for it.  Might want to think about that for a moment, as you think of coming elections.

To all that hate Trump so badly that you will sacrifice something good happening for America and its citizens – you need to resign and go into some other field.  You are disrespecting the duties and office you were sworn to uphold.  You are a liar and a cheat.  A cheat because you are cheating the people you represent of the truth and good results.  A liar because you are suggesting you are doing it for the good of the country and people, when, in fact, you are only doing and saying what you are doing and saying because you do not like Trump and want him to fail at all costs.

Shame on all of you who have put your feelings before those you have been elected to represent!

Shame on all of you who have allowed lies and half-truths (full lies) to be reported far and wide by the liberal leaning networks, publications and people, who are more than happy to provide the platform to spread it all!

Shame on all of you who aren’t man and woman enough to stand up with integrity and respect to end the rash of wrongful attacks and disrespect towards the president!

Shame on all of you who are putting your petty thoughts, feelings and reactions before our country because you didn’t get the president you personally wanted!

Shame on all of you who are looking for some technicality to void the election results because you don’t like them!  (Remember:  If this one can be voided – so can all future ones.  You open the door to chaos.)

I’m so tired of waking up every day to all the lying, sneaking and cheating of many politicians and lots of media – that I could scream loud enough for even you all to hear me.

The behavior of some, for all to see, is outrageous.

It’s pathetic.

It’s worse than having to deal with out-of-control children.

It’s worthy of being expelled as one would be in a normal school setting where ethics and rules matter.

All of you who have acted inappropriately whether by action or inaction – know who you are.  (Your fellow members know, too.)  You all need to do some serious reflection and ask yourself why you ran for office and what it was you wished to accomplish.  If you had, and have, good intent – I hope that you will be able to turn your behavior around.  On the other hand, if it was your intent to get only what you wanted, line your pockets, create chaos or destroy America from within – I hope your fellow members will out you and take steps to make your wrongful efforts ineffective.

To all of you who stand up against wrongful behavior, wrongful attacks on the president and acts to destroy our country regardless of how unpopular it makes you among other members – thank you!  Thank you for striving to be the honorable representative that lives with integrity and truth!  God bless you & may you be rewarded for holding the line in our behalf!

In summary…

Members of Congress, we are watching and listening.  The ball is in your court.  It’s all up to you how you play the game.  However, remember that it is up to us whether you will be on the team for another term.

Good day!

An Open Letter to Trey Gowdy

Dear Representative Gowdy:

It is with great sorrow that I write to you today! Yes, sorrow. I feel as though I am at the execution of my best friend and finding there is nothing I can do to stop the wrongful killing of justice. A killing so wrongful that the cries of the people are relentless and piercing. Can’t you hear them?

You trusted Mueller in spite of the teams he was compiling? How is that possible? Even us lowly voters saw the deck was being stacked and not in a good and fair way, yet you were never suspicious? I don’t understand.

The leaks continue. Leaks that are always meant to harm our president and his administration. Leaks that are meant to take him down and void our vote. You know – the vote of the people. The vote that made Trump the legitimate President of the United States. Does that even matter anymore?

We watch as the liberals lie, cheat and bully in an attempt to de-legitimize the election and take down the president we voted for. We watch as few Republicans do anything to stop this wrongful attempt. We watch as people who claim to believe in the Constitution and our system – just shrug their shoulders and pretend all is working as it is supposed to.

Well, it’s not. It’s not working as it is supposed to.

The FBI director selectively answered questions. He answered when it would look bad on President Trump and claimed he couldn’t answer, if it would look good for him. You know, like the fact that Trump wasn’t under investigation though media & officials made the world think he was.

Lie by omission matters. It matters a great deal.

Rep. Gowdy, I have no doubt you have lived a squeaky clean life, but I bet even you are vulnerable to the evil and corruption that we are witnessing. Yes, I bet that if the media and so many in Congress set out to discredit you, that even your reputation and proven action couldn’t withstand their relentless attacks – not if you were standing against them alone. How would you feel then? How would you feel if it was you, rather than Trump, that was targeted for wrongful destruction?

I’m disappointed that you and a few others that I have trusted are doing so little, if anything to stand up for President Trump.

It’s simple really.

You don’t have to like Trump. That isn’t a requirement. However, if you are to claim you believe in the Constitution… believe in our system… believe in justice and the courts – you must stand up and fight fiercely even for Trump- the man we elected president. Otherwise, there is little hope of anything being right ever again.

Today we helplessly watch the corrupted laugh. We watch it because those in power are either using their power wrongly or not at all. We watch it because those who could make a difference have chosen not to and have closed their ears to our pleas to be the warriors they were sent to Congress to be.

Yes…

Today we helplessly watch as truth and justice are being devoured in a pit of the wrongfully executed.

We may be helpless to fight the swamp beasts but you are not. Will you help us by helping President Trump?

With Hope that Evil Hasn’t Already Won,
