More wisdom from The Rude Pundit


http://rudepundit.blogspot.com/2020/01/this-cowardly-nation-has-learned.html


Donald Trump is a coward. This much we must agree on before moving on. Everything he does, everything he has done, is based on his soul-draining fears. He fears that he will not be perceived as a success, a tough guy, a charmer, a winner of everything. He lashes out at anyone who foments those fears, those who tell him he's wrong, or those who want to hinder him. He is driven by his panic that everyone will find out that he is entirely a fake, entirely a fraud. He is running away from the legacy of the still-beloved Barack Obama and the laughter that accompanies any comparison between him and the last president. Just like the buildings and products and businesses, he is merely a body, a vessel that has the word "Trump" stamped on it, and, goddamnit, that name better mean something or it all crumbles. In the business world, this led him to wildly overspend and wrongly invest, which led him to need financing from the skeeviest elements in the banking system, which led him to the presidency, which led us to this pivotal moment, one pivotal moment among far, far too many.

3. Hear, hear!

Thank you, Rude One!

"Democrats need to out the Republicans who oppose Trump privately. Make them have to deny or defend themselves. Reporters need to burn their sources. That last quote up there is "from dozens of interviews with GOP lawmakers, congressional aides and White House staffers over the past month." How many people need to die in order for a Politico reporter to scoop those bastards at the Washington Post?

Time and again, the cowards allow their fear to wreck us. And you might say that you're not a coward, that you actually believe in a war with Iran and everything the president says. Well, then you're just an accomplice.

And those of us who allow them to get away with it time and again, for, indeed, the crisis we're in now is a direct result of not punishing those who caused the crisis last time, we also risk becoming accomplices."

6. Let's stop saying, "Of course the Senate will not convict the President"...

and work to convince enough Republicans that, in light of Trump's latest actions and a possible war with Iran, we must use the vehicle of impeachment and conviction to get rid of Trump and his minions now.

The first step of this process has already been accomplished!!!

Let's rise up and convince all of our senators to do their duty to protect the future of our nation and the world.

8. The last line in The Rude Pundit's post is so true...

And those of us who allow them to get away with it time and again, for, indeed, the crisis we're in now is a direct result of not punishing those who caused the crisis last time, we also risk becoming accomplices.


We need to do something. I, like so many others, have worked right through all of this shit and continue to put my income ahead of my values. I have gone out to protests in my small community but I live in a Democratic town with a Democratic congressman and my state has two Democratic senators. I call Douche McConnell's and other Republican's offices periodically to voice my discontent but they don't give a rat's ass about what I have to say. I think about the people who are experiencing the detrimental effects of the policies being implemented by the evil bastards who took over our government (here and around the world) and I cringe. I want desperately to do something productive and helpful to get the orange, shit-faced asshole and his "administration" out of our government. I know the vast majority of people in this country are with me.
