Senate Leader Hypnotized by Trump
As many have said and continue to say, President Donald Trump has done nothing to bring the country together. Each day he says or does something which deepens the divide. He was investigated in the House and now we wait for the next move by our legislative branch. This is going to be a long Christmas break, with much digging in and each side repeating their talking points. This country will not move forward with talking points, rally lines or slogans. We need to the truth more than ever.
Now we have the Leader of the Senate, Kentucky’s Mitch McConnell, claiming that Trump’s impeachment is just a “momentary hysteria” by an overzealous Democratic House. But while he cannot and will not classify Donald Trump’s letter to Nancy Pelosi as hysterical, he can cast a stone toward the house that our founders built. Just as Mitch McConnell took a partisan position against permitting Merrick Garland a chance to present himself for the Supreme Court, he is building a wall to keep America from a fair impeachment trial in the Senate. He’s an ally and self-proclaimed unbiased jury. Under any normal court and voir dire, Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham would be struck from the jury pool by both sides in a trial. How can they run a fair and unbiased trial?
When one is angry and perhaps a bit hysterical, they usually act. When one is hypnotized, they do whatever the controller bids. The Senate of the United States better put on a fair and focused trial, or this whole matter of equal branches of government will be sucked down the drain. The checks and balances of our democracy are unique and special. Without the oversight of the executive branch, we will lurch toward a government by one, rather than many. If we don’t have a reasonable, brief and fair trial in the Senate, we will now see the balance of power shift to Trump, who will continue to abuse it. He just can’t help himself.
I am totally miffed that the judicial branch cannot step up and decide things faster on these immensely important issues. Why can’t the Supreme Court rule on whether White House personnel, such as Don McGahn, Mick Mulvaney, John Bolton and others should testify? This is all so important and stressful on the populace of this nation. Why can’t we, the citizens, get a speedy decision? The top court seems to be dragging their feet on judgments that should be easy to make. Does the President have the right to block all document discovery and testimony by key witnesses?
It would be so much more gratifying if some people would admit that Donald John Trump is a bad guy. He attacks people, puts down Americans, lies constantly and is nothing better than an amoral egomaniacal narcissist. There, that gets the personal stuff out of the way so let me now focus on the real danger this man is bringing to our country.
First and most importantly, he’s signing too many executive orders (136) which are not backed up with proper research. Most are favors or promises without knowledge of the long-term effects they will have on America. This is nothing new for the chief executive, but Trump’s moves have done much to harm the environment, commerce, banking, health and welfare. His attempt to eliminate cheap social Band-Aids, while running up the debt, is foolish. The US national debt is $22 trillion. In 2014, the national debt was $483 billion. Trump doesn’t care about debt; he’s declared himself the King of Debt. Trump’s businesses have declared bankruptcy six times. And this is the person we put in charge of the America economy?
There is nothing Trump does that has anything to do with normal governance and long-term stability. He’s the drunken sailor spending tons of money at the casino. Sadly, we cannot impeach or remove a president for bad acts. We can only wait for the next election and vote a worthy candidate into office. That time is coming.
I disagree with Mitch McConnell. This is not momentary hysteria; this is a well-thought-out plan to disrupt a bad choice for President. It’s not momentary. It’s ongoing and will continue until Donald Trump gets what he deserves. It’s not quite hysteria; it’s more like a rush to the finish line. The endorphins have kicked in, and those with the charge to remove will carry on. Someone needs to wake up McConnell and bring him out of his manipulated stupor. Maybe the voters of Kentucky will slap some sense into him.
Donald Trump has been impeached. No one can take that away from him. The history books and the Wikipedia page have been written. God bless America.
