cowardice on display

Cadet Bonespurs claimed he would have run towards the gunfire to save kids. Instead, he ran from the kids. His cowardice is plain to see, just as it was with his five deferments from actual combat.

He is unfit to be in charge of anything. When will Congress get enough backbone to impeach him? My answer: not soon enough.

just another brick in his wall

The only time Trump isn’t lying is when his mouth is shut. Yet the Republicans in Congress still blindly support and protect him. They are complicit in his crimes and deserve the same punishment he will receive.

It’s U

R_ssian Coll_sion? It's U

Collusion with an enemy is treason. Allowing a president to continue supporting and defending a country and a leader that is attacking our country is treason. Supporting and defending a president engaged in treason is complicity.

If you need examples, look no further than the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee voting to shut down the incomplete and deeply flawed investigation into Trump’s relationship with Russia. They, and every member of Congress that is still standing with Trump, are complicit in his crimes against our nation.

Everyone of those refusing to call Trump to account needs to suffer the full consequences of such traitorous actions. Offering aid to our enemies is treason. Protecting our enemies is treason. Keeping traitors in office is complicity in treason.

repugnant is as repugnant does

Human rights are violated when a tax reform plan lines the already bulging pockets of the rich at the cost of life-saving services for the poor. Human rights are violated when corporations are given precedence over the hungry.

The Republican leaders in Congress have clearly demonstrated that they are unafraid of violating human rights on a massive scale. Their willingness to promote and support unfair economic structures for their own benefit is even more morally repugnant than their continued support and protection of a traitorous president.

Those guilty of either or both should be legally removed from office and tried for treason.

not angry, disgusted

When those we have elected to lead us fail as dismally as those we now have in leadership, they need to be removed as fast as legally possible and replaced with those who understand that they are elected to serve the citizens, to the other way around.

Words are insufficient to describe my shame over the lack of character displayed by those Senators who continue to support such a critically flawed human as Donald Trump. Such a complete absence of moral leadership deserves nothing but contempt and revulsion.

Those in Congress who refuse to speak up should not be allowed any position of political leadership. They are cowards at best, and treasonous at worst.

sound familiar?

Here we go again. Will we even learn from history?

We now have a country where the wealthy are in control. They have and use the power to feather their own nests at the cost of the poor and middle classes. The recent tax scam is only the latest demonstration.

We now live in a nation where 95% of us provide labor and benefits for the power elite. Welcome to a class society where your position is to serve the wealthy, Unless we decide to change it, this is fast becoming our world.

The Case For Impeachment

Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, a co-author of the Federalist Papers — and an immigrant himself — argued that “high crimes and misdemeanors” could be defined as “abuse or violation of some public trust.” This president has clearly already exceeded these standards. Congress has impeached past presidents for far less.

                                                                                                                                            Tom Steyer, October 18, 2017

There comes a time when it is painfully obvious that the public trust has not only been violated, but abused, so badly that action has to be taken. Trump has clearly, and I would add, even intentionally exceeded any standards required for removal from office. This president was unfit before Russia put him into office, and he has done nothing to redeem himself in the year since.
Instead, he has continued to lie, to mock the Constitution and our rule of law. He has continued to flaunt his power and make a mockery of true American values. His unmitigated greed and hubris knows no limits.
There is a solid case for impeachment of this president. Now, we all need to encourage ALL our representatives to execute their responsibilities and start the proceedings. (And those refusing to do so should pay the maximum penalty at the polls.)
There comes a time when talking is not enough. The time has come for action. #BLOTUS needs to be impeached. He is a traitor, and needs to be treated as such. The time has come to demonstrate our values are not his values.

MAGA…really?

The man in the offal office controls the Executive branch of the government. His party controls both the Senate and the House of Representatives, and the Supreme Court leans right, as well. And #BLOTUS still whines about the obstructionist Democrats.

He has been in office for almost a full year.  Just what exactly is his definition of making America great again? His tiny legacy, like everything else connected to him is a shameful failure that demonstrates a dangerous lack of morality and an egotistical focus on personal greed.
