In 1970 Republican President Richard Nixon signed a bill creating the Environmental Protection Agency. Several years later, Nixon faced impeachment. To save our nation from division and the embarrassing process of removing a sitting president from office, he resigned; his last act of patriotism.
50 years after the creation of the EPA, another Republican, Donald Trump will be remembered as the illegitimate president who repealed nearly every law to save our environment over five decades. Recently Trump signed executive orders repealing President Obama’s efforts to protect our streams and wetlands. Another Trump lie claims that this will help farmers. The truth is allowing pollution in these critical waterways will greatly damage the ecology.
Trump is currently on trial in the senate for his Constitutional violations. Trump does not love his country; he loves money, the only purpose for his decision to seek the presidency. Trump’s enormous ego and arrogance will never allow him to do the right thing and resign, although his crimes are far more egregious than Nixon’s.
To this day real Republicans refuse to speak the name; Richard Nixon. Today, Republicans no longer exist. The current “Trump Party” is desperately attempting to protect Trump from being removed from the White House, which he has earned many times over.
The truth is that in modern times three Republicans will be remembered for their crimes against America. Nixon for committing the high crime of burglary to gain political advantage. Although he was not impeached, but should have been, Bush 43 will be remembered for lying to congress and the American people about the existence of “weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq. The result of this lie was the loss of hundreds of thousands of lives and a waste of trillions of taxpayer dollars. Now America is cursed with the worst of all; Donald John Trump. Trump is destroying the fabric which made America a respected country piece by piece.
Trump’s greatest crime is refusing to represent all 330 million Americans. His loyalty is to less than 40 percent of all of our nation’s citizens; approximately 170 million people. He cannot in all honesty wear the title of President of the United States. Add to this fact, he is the leader of white supremacy in America; has a severe hatred or Muslims; fears the existence of the LGBTQ community; believes women are on earth to serve men; and lacks average intelligence. We who follow him closely have learned that Father Fred purchased deferments for his weak-minded son; keeping him from serving in Vietnam, and it is even more obvious that his degree was also a gift from daddy. I doubt that Trump ever attended a single class at Wharton. I know several ivy league graduates, and all of them have an understanding of history, world events, excellent social and speaking skills, and the ability to make good decisions; never decisions which are hasty and rash. Trump has none of these abilities.
“Money is the root of all evil,” and money is Trump’s only god. He has no love for his country, for its people, his own family, or for the God of the religion he claims to cherish. Trump is like most evangelists; a fake Christian.
Any man or woman who claims to be a ‘Christian’ is an environmentalist. There are at least 10 commandments in the Bible which demand all of the earth’s people to be ecologists. A few examples.
“This beautiful earth and all things on it are the creations of God (see Genesis 1:1; Moses 2:1; John 1:10; 2 Nephi 2:14). As beneficiaries of this divine creation, we should care for the earth, be wise stewards over it, and preserve it for future generations. The earth and all things on it are part of God’s plan for the redemption of His children and should be used responsibly to sustain the human family (see 1 Nephi 17:36; Moses 1:39; Abraham 3:24–25). However, all are stewards—not owners—over this earth and its bounty and will be accountable before God for what they do with His creations (see Doctrine and Covenants 104:13–15). All humankind should gratefully use what God has given, avoid wasting life and resources, and use the bounty of the earth to care for the poor and the needy (see Doctrine and Covenants 49:19–21).”
Denying climate change caused by man is denying the word of God according to the Bible.
