A New Low, Even For Trump

The man who currently occupies the White House has a problem of needing to not just refute the assertions of those who disagree with him, but to do all he can to destroy them.   In what appears to be a new low, even for someone who has castigated a gold star family and repeatedly lied to the American people,  he is now issuing forth on a path of verbal destruction against those poor souls who have already been visited by destruction in Puerto Rico.   Americans who are literally begging for help from America.

We are long past the point of needing to care about  whether he understands what he is doing or why.    The fact, is that he has  repeatedly done and said things that threaten and hurt the nation, from supporting white nationalist tactics designed to reboot the Civil War to bringing the world to the doorstep of nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula.   He is childlike in his reactions, dividing rather than joining.  He wounds rather than heals, lashing out with all the power at his command from the greatest bully-pulpit in the world.

Be it from picking at open wounds of racial hatred and fear to pitting football fans one against the other under the guise of patriotism, he is tearing us apart.    Assisted by Russian bots, he sews clouds of chaos, confusion and division, and then hides behind his evil creation while dreaming up his next diversion to deflect from the truth of his actions.

He has repeatedly shown an ignorance of both history and contemporary reality.  Now, he openly attacks injured and suffering Americans.  Donald J. Trump, must be impeached.  Those who continue to support this madness will be forever complicit in the damage he continues to inflict, both here on the mainland and on the island of Puerto Rico, which, as he has so vacuously put it,  remains surrounded by “big water, ocean water.”

God, help us.  It appears the cowards in Congress certainly won’t.

A Humble Argument For The Impeachment Of Donald J. Trump

Donald J. Trump is not without fault.   Perhaps his greatest, is that his background rests with the business world and not with careful diplomacy or governance.

In business, the formula for success lies not with the good of the many, but in profitability.   If dumbing down the millions to make it easier to increase sales becomes necessary, then so be it.   If letting the market dictate prices even though the process will result in thousands of preventable deaths  and untold bankruptcies, then let the beast that is the common man and woman care for themselves.  Moving the market to its highest profitability is the greatest good.

If grinding Democracy beneath the jackbooted heel of Demagoguery becomes necessary to improve the lot of the few as opposed to the needs to the many, then let hired jackbooted thugs grind away.

Trump obviously has no understanding of of the good of the many or a decent feeling for just governance.   Instead of carefully thought out policy decisions he prefers the roar of the mob, whipped up not by the truth but by political nonsense shot through with innuendo. This could be why he continues on in campaign mode rather than developing reasonable policies.  It could be why he is attracted to totalitarianism and shows favor for “strongmen” like Vladimir Putin, Rodrigo Duterte,  and Kim Jong-un, whom he recently referred to as a “smart cookie.”

Trump was and obviously is not prepared for the the Office of President of the United States.   He must be impeached asap, if only for his violation of the Emoluments Clause.

Republicans, by their silence,  are complicit in the threat Mr. Trump represents.  If they continue to remain silent then they should be regarded as traitors.

Must we wait helplessly by for an illusory threat that requires the setting aside of The Constitution, the elimination of civil rights and the establishment of a totalitarian regime?  Are there so few patriots left in the Republican Party?

Frederick Douglas is dead, Andrew Jackson was not alive during the Civil War, Barack Obama was born on U.S. soil and Donald J. Trump has no business being in the White House.   He is there only because members of the Electoral College failed in their duty to protect our national best interest against an autocrat who is simply not qualified to lead.
