Boycott Bogus Senate Impeachment Trial

From a Google Image Search – NBC News

Let’s boycott the impeachment proceedings. The Democrats deserve our close attention because they are following regular order in this impeachment process, but the trial in the Senate does not. We might as well be tuning in to two different universes, the actual government of the United States. of America, and an alternative universe, which is Trump’s America. I cannot be expected to listen all day and night to liars, who are pretending to be lawyers, repeat the same nonsense over and over. I cannot be expected to watch the Republicans run the Democrats out of town with their verbal tar and feather routine. The Senate impeachment trial is just a massacre all done for show. If it’s a show, no one should watch it until it is done properly. Trump is already impeached. As for this disgustingly biased display in the Senate – this has nothing to do with governance. This shows that the Trump/Fundamentalist/Republican coup is almost finished and the only ones who don’t know about it are the Democrats.

We can all see that this is not a real “process” at all. This is a bogus construct of an immoral political cabal that will sell their souls to protect a man who is totally unworthy and who has weaseled his way into a position where he does not belong. This man has committed many acts that abuse his office, but so far we have only enough evidence to find him guilty of two articles of impeachment. Does he think we cannot see how he covers his tracks, how he gets henchmen to do his dirty work, and then how he disavows any relationship with them? I guess he thinks he has a string of those spies-without-portfolio whose governments will be unable to protect the men they send out into the clandestine world should they be caught. Except these men are not sent out on government business, they are sent out on cheap, bully-boy Trump election-fixing business. Our government has been corrupted by money and influence for some time. Now we are corrupted by thuggery and bribery and cover-ups. 

Boycott the Senate Impeachment proceedings. Do not serve as any part of an audience for this ‘trash’. Find other ways to show support for Democrats. The 2020 election is looming and it couldn’t be more important to fill every seat possible with a Democrat.

Universe, Please Deliver US from Mitch McConnell!

‘Majority rules’ has always been part of politics, but what happens when the party that represents a minority of the American people keeps winning and everyday governance becomes ‘minority rules’. It used to be that even a majority party did not shut down the minority party. But Mitch McConnell pretends that the party that represents the majority of Americans, which happens to hold only a minority in the Senate, does not exist. He disdains them. He ignores them. 

McConnell now leads a Republican Party that has gone rogue and he seems to relish the job. He smiles, he pontificates, he denies, he even looks less turtle-y, less prune-y. 

There are 400 bills sitting on the Senate floor and they will not be moved, says Mitch, as he hugs President Trump. 

There is no give and take in the Senate these days. Mitch McConnell has turned the Senate into a sinkhole. There is no intelligent discussion, no presentation of facts, and careful deliberation. Mitch McConnell believes that when your party has the majority in the Senate (even when that party represents a minority of Americans), only those bills that agree with that Senate majority’s ideology are valid and even those bills will have to wait because right now he’s busy, he has to stuff the courts. 

So when this Trump loyalist, when this stubborn and very partisan person, sticks out his skinny chest and lifts his weak wrinkled chin and pronounces what will and will not happen, the 51% of Americans who he does not represent can see that we are screwed once again, that this man (backed by Trump and his Republicans in the Senate) can and will pretend that there is no other party, that he governs unopposed, and right now he actually does. Kentucky obviously loves that the scourge of the Senate is a favorite son.

We can guess with a fair amount of certainty that Trump’s Senate Impeachment Trial will be a total farce, because Mitch McConnell can and will make it so, and the Orange King will smile down upon him and grant him absolute power to do anything as long as Trump does not disagree with it. It must be awful to be a Democrat in the Senate right now, but please hang in Democrats. Evil doesn’t hold sway forever. We were created with an anathema to evil.

That is probably enough of Mitch McConnel to last a lifetime. It is not as if the rest of the Senate will suddenly return to sanity if Mitch McConnell is voted out of office, but perhaps the next incarnation of Mitch McConnell will not be so capable at partisan stonewalling.
