Calling the Ghost of George Washington to Help Us With the Trumpers.

"But her (USA) mission will not then be finished; for ere another century shall have gone by, the oppressors of the whole earth, hating and envying her exaltation, shall join themselves together to raise up their hands against her. But if she still be found worthy of her high calling they shall surely be discomfitted, and then will be ended her third and last great struggle for existence. Thence-forth shall the Republic go on, increasing in power and goodness, until her borders shall end only in the remotest corners of the earth, and the whole earth shall beneath her shadowing wing become a Universal Republic. Let her in her prosperity, however remember the Lord her God, her trust be always in Him, and she shall never be confounded."

  Sounds like a prophetic warning for the USA's struggles today facing the January 6th insurrection internally, and Vladimir Putin's threat of Nuclear War as he kills thousands in Ukraine.  It isn't.  The prophetic warning telling America to "be found worthy of her high calling," actually appeared to General McClellan on this day in the year 1862 as he prepared to protect the America from its insurrection from the South during that period.  The prophet who spoke to McClellan?  George Washington.  Which begs the question? Where are you today, George? We need you now more than ever.  Case in point, in the heart of America, Kansas City suburb to be exact, there is a Trump supporter who owns his own radio station and has recently began broadcasting Russian state-sponsored programming in the midst of the Ukrainian war.  That's right, the same guy who most certainly supported George Bush's War by saying "You are either with us or against us," when peacenixs like me protested the reasons to invade a country, now says broadcasting Vladimir Putin's propaganda to justify the senseless killing of Russians and Ukrainians in Ukraine is Free Speech.  Truth is, this asshole along with the Trump Fringe hold on the Republican party are willing to sell out the USA to a despot like Putin because they are closed-minded idiots who don't like true freedom of speech.  I don't have a problem with this guy, or the Trumpers, but I just want them to acknowledge they are drinking the Vladimir Putin Koolaide because the guy wears a Jesus cross and believes in a white country, as they do. Bigots.  Maybe that's why the ghost of George Washington hasn't appeared to any American leaders today?
Okay, I need to cool down.  I'll go back to chanting for peace with the hopes that this Right Wing Fringe period ends soon.
And for some good news:

First Lady Helen Taft
On this day in 1912, First Lady Helen Herron Taft and the Japanese ambassador's wife, Viscountess Chinda, planted two Yoshino cherry trees on the northern bank of the Potomac tidal basin.  Mayor Ozaki donated the trees to enhance the growing friendship between the United States and Japan and also celebrate the continued close relationship between the two nations. Large and colorful helium balloons, floats, marching bands from across the country, music and showmanship are parts of the Festival's parade and other events.

One has to wonder if President Truman noticed the friendship trees on August 6, 1945 or August 9, 1945 when we dropped atomic bombs on them killing 75,000 people.   I wonder how good those apples tasted that day.
