As the Coronavirus spreads like wildfire, my family and I are under self quarantine. We are watching movies and shows on our streaming services, I’m spending more time writing, and my mother is spending more time quilting. Even though we are spending more time together as a family, there are several drawbacks to our current state. We can no longer go to our favorite places such as restaurants, movie theaters, and baseball stadiums. We go on occasional trips to the grocery store. When we go to the grocery store, we are notice that all the meat and bread products are picked clean and everyone was stockpiling on junk food, but the fruits and vegetables were largely untouched. I still don’t know why people are stockpiling on toilet paper. I can no longer go to my usual job or go to school until this crisis is under control, which disrupts my sense of normalcy. Overall, I feel like I am in a dystopian story or zombie apocalypse story.
It looks like Trump is willing to do whatever it takes to distract the public from his impeachment problems, even if it means starting a war with Iran. He broke another promise to his base that we would have no more wars in the Middle East. He broke this promise to save himself politically and he doesn’t give a damn how many destructive things he must do to distract people from his impeachment problems. Trump may have dodged all-out war for now, but he is so unpredictable that he could spark tensions again at any moment. If it means distracting the public from the impeachment news, Trump can and will kick the hornet’s nest again. The Iranian general was a bad man who needed to die, but Bush and Obama did not kill this man for a reason. Due to his high standing in Iran, killing this general has turned him into a martyr that could lead to another war in the Middle East. Trump and his cronies can’t even come up with a coherent explanation for killing the man and their story changes everyday. To make matters worse here in America, the False Republicans LOVE war because it is the perfect fuel for their propaganda machine and keeping their corrupt and greedy party in power. War has done that for the False Republicans in the past and it is likely it will this time. We are on the verge of another war and it is all Trump’s fault!
I heard that Moscow Mitch and his cronies have no intention of making the impeachment trial in the Senate a fair trial. Moscow Mitch openly said that he was working hand-in-glove with Trump to strategize the so-called “trial” and that he will NEVER be an impartial juror. As a member of the Senate, Moscow Mitch’s job is as a juror not a lawyer. He is not supposed to strategize with the defendant. He said in a press conference that he has the votes to resolve the trial without support from the Democratic party. He is terrified of allowing evidence and witnesses into the “trial.” It just shows that Moscow Mitch and all who follow him are terminally ill with greed, cowardice, and political megalomania. Moscow Mitch and his followers are living proof that there are no Republican Senators or Representatives left with either a conscience, spine, guts, or balls. They are willing to be Trump’s whipped lapdogs if it means keeping their precious political power at all costs.
Something intriguing happened during the impeachment hearing yesterday. During the hearing, Trump used Twitter to blast the testifying ambassador and smeared her reputation. While it is true that the President can appoint ambassadors, it is not the right of the President to smear their reputation and threaten them afterwards. This ambassador was threatened before she testified and now she has been threatened by Trump in public on Twitter. Trump thought this would make him look tough to his followers or distract the public from the fact that his advisor Roger Stone has been found guilty and could face 20 years in prison. However, all he succeeded in doing was create another article of impeachment for not just obstruction of justice, but also witness intimidation. Trump also undermined the False Republicans’ defense for him, which is something he has been doing often these days. He can’t help himself because his ego is too big and too fragile, which makes him too unpredictable for his False Republican minions to defend coherently.
Guess what? A bunch of former Republicans trolled the House while they were interviewing a witness for Trump’s impeachment and they refused to leave for five hours. Despite that, the testimony continued after the stunt was over. This just proves how desperate the “Republicans” have become with this impeachment. With so much damning evidence mounting, they can’t defend Trump’s actions anymore so they decide to attack the legal process. This stunt was an act of desperation. It further shows they have made Trump the linchpin to their party’s political survival. Without the linchpin, their party will fall and crumble and they know it. If he goes down, he is taking all of them with him. That is why they are taking such frantic actions.
I am quite giddy lately as the impeachment inquiry against Trump progresses. I am particularly glad that it is moving so fast compared to how painfully slow it was during the Mueller Probe. It is moving so fast because Trump handed over the transcript of his call, thinking he could get away with it like he did with Russia. That was like a serial killer handing over his own smoking gun over to the police. Best of all is that the evidence against Trump is so overwhelmingly damning that Trump can’t come up with a plausible and coherent defense. He is reduced to lashing out, blustering, and temper tantrums. Even Trump’s allies in the former Republican Party are silent and whatever flimsy excuses they come up with are crumbling. Public support for impeachment is growing with each day that passes. At this point, the False Republicans HAVE to turn on Trump or risk political suicide. I am calling the so-called Republicans “False Republicans” because the true Republican Party is dead. Trump killed it and took over the remains. There is no Republican Party anymore; there is only the Party of Trump. Now, this impeachment will reveal where their true loyalties lie. They can serve Trump or they can serve America. They can’t serve both.
I am becoming increasingly disillusioned with the America I live in due to recent events. Trump has made many Americans forget how to be decent and rational human beings. He pardoned Kim Jong Un for the murder of a college student. In Michael Cohen’s recent testimony, he revealed that Trump has committed several crimes such as campaign finance laws. Some people may question Cohen’s credibility, but unlike the first time he went to Congress, he now has hard evidence to back his claims. Despite all that evidence, Trump’s base and the false Republican Party in general are still blindly loyal to him and are unwilling to impeach him. Previous Presidents have been impeached for less! When is enough going to be enough?
In the days after the 2018 midterm election, I have noticed that Trump is breaking badly. He has been attacking reporters and revoking their press passes whenever they asked honest and logical questions. He fired Jeff Sessions and replaced him with one of his lackeys just so he could gain control over the Russia Investigation. If there was no collusion like he claims, then why is he so hell-bent to stop the probe? Trump is scared and desperate to escape justice whatever the cost. Like some villains in fiction and literature, Trump verbally punishes his minions for their failure for losing in the midterm. Not only did Trump lose control of the House of Representatives, but he also lost key states in the Senate that were vital to his 2020 campaign. To make matters worse for Trump, even though the election is over, the race for the Senate is still going because several states are getting recounted and investigated for voter suppression. Due to this, it is possible that Trump may ultimately lose control of the Senate too. Trump has often been attacking people who criticized him, but these recent events seemed a lot more personal for him. It is likely his attempt to suppress the Russia probe will backfire and he and everyone involved will suffer the consequences. The walls are quickly closing around Trump and he knows it. Even though there is no escape, it is clear that Trump is willing to fight the iron fist of justice until the bitter end, which will completely ruin him, his supporters, his brand name, and entire family. It is going to be a political blood orgy in the next two years and I look forward to the moment when they drag Trump out of the White House while he is crying like a little girl.
GREAT NEWS!!! The Democrats have taken the House of Representatives! Now Trump and his minions can’t do whatever they want anymore. This means more security in the Mueller Investigation, more protection for the other committees, and more insight in Trump’s dealings. Trump now has no choice but to show the entirety of his tax returns, which so far seems damaging. This is the first step to cleaning up Trump’s mess. Overall, we can finally bring Trump and his sycophants to heel. Also, we now have a Democratic Speaker of the House, which means if Mueller finds impeachable evidence against Trump and Pence, then we will have a Democratic President once more. This isn’t the victory I wanted, but I will take it! I’m too happy!
I write this post not as a Democrat, but as a concerned citizen of the United States. I am terrified and disgusted with how America is under Trump’s rule. Since he had taken office, my country has become increasingly more divided. I have seen peaceful protests being attacked by angry drivers in Charlottesville, I have seen hate crimes, I have seen the media being attacked, I have seen children being stolen by our so-called “border guards”, I have seen our “President” destroy our relations with our NATO allies and kissing up to our enemies in Russia and North Korea, I have seen farmers’ livelihoods destroyed by Trump’s senseless trade war, I have seen Trump and his minions try to take healthcare away from countless American citizens 70 times, I have seen our First Amendment rights violated over and over again, I have heard hateful and toxic rhetoric from Trump and his allies day after day, I have seen sexist Senators bully and belittle rape victims, I have seen Senators violate proper protocol while attempting to appoint Brett Kavanaugh just to consolidate their party’s power, I have seen a mad bomber who was brainwashed by Trump’s words try to murder political officials and the free press, and now I have seen Trump fail for the billionth time to be a real leader and seek to further divide us. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! You can say the economy may be good, you can say his policies are good, you can say the tax cuts are good, but at the end of the day, Trump and his self-proclaimed Republicans are unworthy of their offices. The TRUE Republican Party died with John McCain and the Party and Cult of Trump is all that’s left. From the blood of my heart and the very center of my being, I am begging anyone who will listen to help stop this madness. If the Democrats win the House and the Senate, then Trump and his “Republicans” will be brought to heel and we can have some sense of stability and normalcy in our country. I am not asking you to change parties or beliefs. I am asking you to help stop a madman and his sycophants from dividing us any further.
