Why Should Trump be Impeached? (2017Dec06)
Well, it’s been so long—take your pick:
- He has sixteen (16!) accusers of sexually repugnant behavior—and his taped confession of his habitual misbehavior in that regard.
- He has made bigoted remarks, excused white-nationalist neo-nazis, and insulted Mexicans, Native-Americans, African-Americans, Muslims, Jews, Puerto Ricans, Women, and the handicapped—he hasn’t missed a trick—he even supports Confederate statues.
- He has endangered the country by acting as if diplomacy was some child’s game—as if he could just play around with nations in the same way he played around with his sub-contractors, partners, and customers—as a businessman (and I use the term loosely, for brevity’s sake).
- He has destroyed the State Department’s depth of field and its ability to serve an actual president—one who knows its importance in effecting international influence and power. His cabinet is a reverse-image of the competent, engaged people one might hope would fill these appointments. They are, to a person, industry shills who’ve dreamed of erasing the very agencies they’ve been put in charge of—for mere profit, and against the best interests of the people. Go to him—utter the phrase “best interests of the people”—listen to him laugh.
- Even if he is not a Russian agent working against our best national interests, he certainly acts like one. Look at the tax bill.
- His ignorance of—or perhaps actual enmity towards—the ideals that form the bedrock of true American values—may be because he was raised by a clansman, or because his wealth deludes him into dreams of upper-classiness, or it may be a simple blend of ignorance and egotism—regardless, he represents much of what America has always stood against, in our hearts.
- If the above is insufficient, consider how stupid he is, how greedy he is, and how petty he is—he clearly shouldn’t be in charge of anything, much less…
- Ask Meuller.

Have you seen the cable news channels today? Just a stream of word salad. They take every Trump tweet or statement at face value, then create a Gordian Knot of ‘perhapses’ based on the blind assumption that a president who always lies should still be given the benefit of the doubt with each new lie, until it can be disproven.
As the noose tightens around his earlier lies, Trump issues revised lies. Just as a hacker’s ‘Denial Of Service’ attack keeps a system paralyzed by sending it too many messages at once, Trump’s DOS attack keeps so many lies being reported, we can’t stop to seriously examine any one of them.
We are now, though, reaching new heights of byzantine ass-covering, and new lows of ludicrous point-stretching—something we can all recognize, because you never see that behavior in the pure of heart or the clear of conscience.
