Sad Day in America, January 6, 2021, We the People of the United States: An Assault on Our Democracy 

“Trump supporters try to break through a police barrier, Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021, at the Capitol in Washington. As Congress prepares to affirm President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, thousands of people have gathered to show their support for President Donald Trump and his claims of election fraud.” (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)

Sad Day in America, January 6, 2021, We the People of the United States: An Assault on Our Democracy 
   
A Vietnam Soldier And Bestselling Author Writes About Saving Our Country.

“Washington, D. C.’s executive branch, of the US federal government’s fragile pretense, and its leaderless situation.” Op-Ed By Charles Singleton

Looking back on Trump's obvious impeachable offenses: international quid pro quo, nationwide political threats, and bribes; weaponizing implications (total chaos, repeated riots, treasonous sedition), life-threatening crowds, and death-driven events, have overwhelmingly demolished the ‘democratized words’ of the Preamble to the United States Constitution (Constitutional Convention, Summer 1787).

Preamble to the United States Constitution

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
 
Unfortunately, President Donald Trump's “Stop the Steal” rebellious supporters, Washington, D.C., January 6, 2021, were very disorderly after attending a verbally incendiary rally. Thus, they proceeded (rebelliously encouraged) to disrupt the United States Congress during its meeting to authenticate the electoral votes of November 2020.

Dangerously, this groups’ subversive actions were aimed at upending Joe Biden’s and Kamala Harris’ presidential victories. This congressional meeting was necessary to certify President-elect Joseph Robinette Biden Jr and Vice President-elect Kamala Devi Harris of the United States. "Trump And The GOP Have Lost A Total Of 62 Post-Election Lawsuits."  --- William Cummings, Joey Garrison and Jim Sergent, USA TODAY, Jan. 6, 2021

Once again, now hear me!  It is shameful, Trump and many GOP legislators and enablers, who are continuing their annoying and persistent validation (challenge) of the 2020 election votes; along with believing in a plethora of deflated conspiracy theories, are damaging our democracy, and every word of the Preamble to the United States Constitution.

Repeated episodes!  And it is absolutely frightening! In this post 2020 election period, “We the People of the United States” are rapidly experiencing vocabulary episodes of acrimonious words and phrases, such as, inciting insurrection and violence: political descent and crises, coup d'état, a demigod’s tragic failures, and death.

$25 BILLION DOLLAR CIVIL RIGHTS LAWSUIT FILED BY BLACK MAN TAKES AN INTERESTING TURN

On September 15, 2020, a civil rights lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court of Illinois for the Southern District, against the international law firm Seyfarth Shaw, LLP. and five co-defendants including Carrier Global Corporation, Kidde, and two North Carolina United States District Court judges.

The Plaintiff, Mr. Jonathan Burrs alleges in the lawsuit that Seyfarth Shaw worked in concert with United States District Court Judge Catherine C. Eagles of Greensboro, NC and United States District Court Magistrate Judge Lawrence P. Auld also of Greensboro, NC, to deprive Mr. Burrs of, and interfere with, his protected rights under the United States Constitution in three previous civil actions filed in the United States District Court of North Carolina, Middle District against Seyfarth client and co-defendant Kidde Safety of Mebane, NC, a subsidiary of co-defendant Carrier Global Corporation of Florida.

The Complaint alleges the defendants participated in proceedings with predetermined outcomes, thereby denying Mr. Burrs due process rights and the right to full and fair opportunity to litigate. The Complaint alleges the defendants went through great lengths to deny and interfere with Mr. Burrs’ right to litigate including but not limited to perjury, mail theft, and a multitude of other federal felonies, with the direct involvement of U.S. Judge Catherine Eagles.

AUTHOR OF 50 BOOKS WHO HELPS PEOPLE FIND THEIR GENIUS FEATURED ON NEWEST ISSUE OF SPEAKERS MAGAZINE

The new year gives us an opportunity to re-examine and restart ourselves to achieve our purpose and desires. Dr. Will Moreland’s personal awakening came at a young age. “I had an encounter when I was 18 years old. I was told by a judge I was headed to nowhere. He almost put me in jail but then decided to give me a mandate to determine what I was going to do with my life. I was given two weeks to decide,” said Moreland.

Dr. Will (as he is affectionately known) had no idea what he was going to do with his life. Until the Judge’s mandate, he didn't even think about it. But in those two weeks, he knew he had to figure it out or face jail time. That situation led him to tap into his inner genius many years later.

Dr. Will is an accomplished author with penning over 50 books. Ironically, it was by accident that he became a speaker. He began to embrace who he is and his inner genius led him to build a million-dollar speaker brand in less than a decade.

TEACHER CELEBRATES BLACK HISTORICAL FIGURES AND MILLIONAIRES WITH NURSERY RHYME BOOK

Los Angeles, CA  “I was shocked after I visited a first-grade classroom and asked the students to name the first Black president,” said author Audrey Muhammad. “I was surprised that many of the students said, ‘Martin Luther King.’” Granted, they were 6-year olds and Barack Obama was President over 12 years ago, but there had to be a way to help keep our history at the forefront.

Why not make rhymes about each? This is exactly what Mrs. Muhammad did. After revising and updating her children’s book, she now has nursery rhymes like “Off to White House,” a rhyme about Obama.

Since many adults grew up with nursery rhymes and can recite rhymes like “Mary had a Little Lamb,” at the drop of a hat, these nursery rhymes were written to be a fun formula to foster love for Black role models including Black millionaires, entrepreneurs, and historical figures. The new Rhymes of the Times: Black Nursery Rhymes book written by Mrs. Muhammad, a former high school teacher, reads like a “Who’s Who” of African American History with nursery rhymes about Oprah Winfrey, Martin Luther King, Barack Obama, Malcolm X, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Garrett Morgan, Muhammad Ali, Queen N’Zinga and many more.

If you don’t recognize some of these names, you will after reading this book. The book also helps express cultural pride.

NEW PRODUCT ALLEVIATES PAIN THAT BLACK WOMEN SUFFER FROM TIGHT BRAIDS

Fayette, AL -- Braided hairstyles are an integral part of Black culture. They are worn for convenience, as a fashion statement, and also adorned as a bold statement of pride. Braids require proper maintenance to help the style last longer and look its best while keeping natural hair healthy and protected. Tight braids, however, can leave the scalp feeling painfully sore. For this reason, Rose Bianco, a formulator at Topical Solutions, has developed a scalp formula with no tar, petroleum, sulfur, or harsher ingredients - a formula that offers immediate relief from burning pain and itching, even when hair is freshly braided.

The company fully understands the itchiness and discomfort that comes with styling Black hair. They invested in developing Too Tight Scalp Saver to provide a solution that soothes scalp pain caused by braids and weave styles. Made from a combination of natural emollients, essential oils, and a mild anesthetic, this formula relieves the physical pain experienced when cornrows pinch and weave tracks pull, bind, and constrict.
