The Great Oligarchical Party of America
Watching the impeachment hearing in the House Judiciary Committee this week led me to conclude that the Grand Old Party, the GOP, has shed its final pretense to republican values.
We cannot call them republicans anymore.
The GOP has abandoned its commitment to the rule of law and constitutional government. It has succumbed to a cult of personality, they are cheering on an autocrat, clamoring for a dictator, trumpeting the rise of a tyrant.
The GOP now stands the Great Oligarchical Party of America. It has forgotten Lincoln, Teddy.
We watched this week as member after member of the House of Representative screamed in protest about the Impeachment of President Donald J. Trump; he will be the third president in our history to be impeached, impeached for: abuse of power and obstruction of congress.
After soliciting foreign interference in 2016 to aid his campaign in his first bid to become president, after conspiring with Russia to help him over the finish line. After his personal Attorney went to prison for crimes he committed on Donald’s Trump’s behalf, to cover-up hush money payments to playboy models and adult movie stars, payments which amounted to campaign contributions that went undisclosed and unreported, after Tramp’s lawyer went to prison, pleading guilty to charges in which Donald Trump was named as “individual number one” in the indictment, and after his campaign chairmen went to prison as well, and his deputy campaign chairman, and his National Security Advisor and so on all went to prison; some pleading guilty some being found guilty at trial after all of that Donald Trump will now be impeached for soliciting foreign interference in the 2020 campaign. He is doing it again.
Donald Trump is a loser, bankrupt, a fraud and a criminal. He cannot win if he campaigns fairly.
Even with the help of the Russian government he still lost the popular vote by millions of votes cast. On his first day in office he began breaking the law, ordering government agencies to falsify reports and lie to the American people about such trivial and mundane things as the size of his inauguration crowds.
He could have been impeached then, he should have been.
The FBI continued its investigation of the Trump administration after he was elected. The orange tyrant sought to interfere and intervene, he abused his power and authority by firing the director of the FBI, he admitted to it on national TV, and to the Russian Foreign Minister in an oval office meeting.
Donald Trump suborned perjury, intimidated witnesses, ordered executive branch officers and staff not to testify before congress, he did it all to please his Russian masters, he did it in the vain hope that he himself could become an American oligarch, styled after them.
He should have been impeached then. His GOP minions let him off the hook.
Now he is being held to account.
He used duly authorized foreign aid to extort the government of Ukraine, to solicit their interference in the 2020 campaign, and once again he did this to the benefit of his Vladimir Putin and his other Russian Masters.
Now he will be impeached!
However, Mitch McConnell, lovingly referred to as “Moscow Mitch,” The senior Senoator from Kentucky, and the current Senate majority Leader has promised to defend Donald Trump. The Fake President on the floor of the Senate at his trial. Mitch McConnell has promised to work hand in hand with the White House attorney’s to ensure that Donald Trump will not be held to account.
Mitch McConnell and the entire GOP have decided that it is okay to solicit foreign interference in our elections, to place the national security of the United States in jeopardy while doing so; that it is okay for the White House to refuse to respond to lawful congressional subpoenas, to withhold testimony and documentary evidence of his wrong doing, to stall investigations in perpetuity so that the American voter never has a chance to judge for themselves the rightness or wrongness of the tyrant’s deeds.
Moscow Mitch is taking the Great Oligarchical Party of America over the cliff, and if they succeed we will no-longer be living in a constitutional republic.
This is it my fellow citizens. We must oppose them. Put them out of office, Send them all home before they can do more harm.
