The forgone concussion of Trump’s 2nd impeachment trial only goes to prove what I have said since he first rode down that escalator, He tapped into the hearts and minds of the people who saw America changing becoming more diverse, more inclusive and they felt America was being taken from them. They felt so strongly about it being “our” America not “their” America that they rallied behind the man they felt would be their last line of defense in a way they never have anyone else. The rest of the GOP saw this and knowing that alienating his base would cost them politically and being the spineless cowards with no morals or principles they are they went along with it. Now they are so connected to it they know they can’t get out they know that for for all intensive purposes they are Trump and a vote against Trump is a vote against themselves.
Republican Senators heed the words of Mr. Spock first officer of the USS Enterprise
Mitch McConnell should gather his GOP Senate colleagues in a room summon up his inner Star Trek, we all have it you know, and paraphrase Romulan Commander Donatra of the war bird Valdore by telling them:
Does anyone in this room harbor any illusions about what he meant by “Because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. you have to show strength? He showed no remorse for the death of a Capitol Police Officer, he watched with glee as they threatened to hang his Vice President, he tried to dismantle the very democracy that this country was built on. Are you prepared to have your hands drenched in blood? his sins will mark all of us who turn a blind eye to his evil and vote to aquit him for generations. Is that what you truly want, Republicans? I think we should consider that question now — or else you we may have a lifetime to think about it as The minority party.
240 Years…something must have been right about it
Impeach Donald Trump.
Liberals smile with glee at the very mention of the I word, but liberals everywhere should be careful what they wish for. Removing Trump from the office will elevate Mike Pence to the Presidency. While you may think Trump’s administration has been nothing less than a circus, a Pence administration will be nothing, if not extremely dangerous to the progress achieved by liberals over the years. Pence will be sane and rational. He will comport himself with decency. He won’t be bogged down in one scandal after another, and with all that going for him, he will be able to methodically push his ultra conservative agenda through congress. Here’s just a sample of what President Pence would bring to the table.
As governor of Indiana, Pence signed the most abortion-restrictive regulations in the nation, banning abortion even in cases where the fetus has a “genetic abnormality” such as Down syndrome and holding doctors legally liable if they had knowingly performed such procedures.
He led the national fight to defund Planned Parenthood and forced so many of its clinics to close in Indiana that he triggered an H.I.V. epidemic in one county.
In 2015 he helped pass one of the nation’s harshest “religious freedom” laws that would have protected businesses who wanted to refuse service to LGBT people if they cited religious objections.
As a congressman, he opposed federal funding that would support treatment for people suffering from H.I.V. and AIDS unless the government simultaneously invested in programs to discourage people from engaging in same-sex relationships.
He is opposed to any restrictions on assault rifles.
He is skeptical of climate change and wrote a letter to then-President Obama threatening to disobey the new regulations on coal mandated by the Clean Power Plan.
Liberals, let’s be careful what we wish for.
