King Trump

He lies like a rug and and he is unable to speak the truth. He has absolutely no credibility.

He acts like he is the sovereign, the supreme leader of the country, as if he has sway over everything and everyone.

His election four years ago was not accidental. He had help from Russia and from his Republican cronies in swing states, who pulled millions of voters from the voting rolls and who closed polling places in primarily minority locations.

You shouldn’t be lulled into thinking this is water under bridge. It’s not, and our democracy cannot survive should he either win the election or refuse to leave if he does lose.

Vote in November as if your life depends on it. Because it truly does.

The Odds Are Against It

3ECBD246-68FD-4DAB-A045-539EACED3754The official line from the White House is that, despite all of his documented wrongdoings and ethical violations, it’s one big conspiracy from the so-called “deep state” that is leading toward the impeachment of Donald Trump in the United States House of Representatives.

The issue, for those of us who know that Trump is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors, is that in order to obtain a conviction, thus leading to his removal from office, it would take a two-thirds supermajority vote (67 senators) in the United States Senate. As it stands now, the Senate has 53 Republicans and 47 Democrats (including two independents). And that means that 20 of the 53 Republicans, plus every Democrat and the two independents, would have to vote to convict.

Despite all of the irrefutable evidence of abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and extortion of a foreign government for political purposes, against Donald Trump, it’s unlikely that the Republican senators, who worship Donald Trump as if he were a god, would see the light and vote to convict him.

Thus, the odds of ridding our country of the scourge of Donald Trump through impeachment and conviction are slim to none. So voting him and his Republican sycophants out of office next November will be our best and last chance to end this insanity and to save our democratic republic.

See, Hear, Speak No Evil

1141D16F-F961-4944-B4B9-A4565821C218The U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution today laying out the framework for the next phase of the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump’s actions regarding holding aid to Ukraine hostage unless they would gather dirt on Trump’s political opponent and for obstruction of justice in the investigation of those actions. The resolution passed on a vote of 232-196.

Apparently the Republican members of the House of Representatives are acting like those infamous three monkeys who, as the old adage says, see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil — at least when it comes to Donald Trump — as not one Republican representative voted to support the resolution. Not one!FAB4C148-BDE4-465F-939E-D22608BB7DE8The symbolism of the three monkeys is that it depicts a lack of moral responsibility on the part of people who refuse to acknowledge impropriety, looking the other way or feigning ignorance. Such people turn a blind eye to something that is legally or morally wrong. In this case, these elected officials see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil and pretend that they have not witnessed wrongdoing, and, therefore, abdicate all responsibility for righting a wrong.

Clearly 100% of Republicans in the Congress of the United States of America have abdicated their responsibility to uphold the U.S. Constitution and to act in the best interests of their constituents, the citizens of America.

They truly are a basket of deplorables.
