DONALD TRUMP IMPEACHED! An American Refreshing Begins.

It’s over and done, folks. Donald Trump has finally been impeached. His wicked plot to attack Joe Biden through his innocent son Hunter, who he felt deserves to be investigated falsely because he was once on the Board of Directors of a Ukrainian power company, has been exposed to ruinous effect, for Trump and the country both.

A commensurate response was called for by our opposition forces, and we gave it to him with both barrels.

Two Articles of Impeachment, one for gross abuse of power and the other for obstructing the Congressional investigation the Democratic House was forced to undertake, have been levied against Donald Trump. He has been duly convicted, and now the trial is heading for the Senate- when the time is right.

Regardless of whether he is dragged out kicking and screaming, neither Trump nor his presidency will ever be the same. Thank the Lord, because America in the Trump Era has been growing tired and stale. We’re going to do him a favor, though, and muck out the stall he has made of the Oval Office. A stagnant swamp is soon to get a freshening, volunteer hours or no, for the day of national justice has finally come.

It’s important to remember that in many ways the fight is just beginning. Okay, great, I can hear somebody saying, joyfully. Trump was a piece of crap and now he’s gone. When can we start helping him pack?

That’s the real question, and it’s something else again. We impeached him, all right. It was a big step, and we did not shirk it when the time came; Democrats have done our best.

But now we’ve got to physically remove him from the White House. That will not prove so simple if we miss our chance at the ballot box.

To vanish an American president by force, we need an Aye vote from two-thirds of a Republican Senate, whose Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has already vowed to kill the process as soon as he lays hand on it.- at Trump’s “marching orders”. That’s why Nancy Pelosi can’t send this over to the Senate. It will instantly die and take with it the American dream.

Since the time of the Founding Fathers, we have governed according to the principle that no one is above the law, that kingship is a bad dream, that all men are created equal. Discarding that is to toss away America itself. Getting rid of the man himself is the smaller point compared to that.

The sheer damage Trump has already done to America’s sense of self-worth is unreasonably huge and absolutely endless.

Our children bully one another using the president’s language. Hate crimes have skyrocketed; in fact, twenty-seven of them took place the very day Trump was elected. Vladimir Putin’s Russia was given a free hand in the Middle East; he’s ruined us forever and completely over there. The military has been loaned to the Saudi Arabian Prince Mohammed bin Salman to use as a toy, even though he beheaded a Washington Post reporter named Jamal Khashoggi, who is remembered.

After Trump took office, we didn’t make two weeks without disaster. It was pandemonium on seven continents thanks to his moronic travel ban. Like the walls of Babylon, peace and order inside airports were judged apocalyptically and destroyed in a single blundering hour. Every port of air travel on the planet got as choked and clotted and clogged as Trump’s obese arteries. Enough is enough; America needs its self-respect back. We’ve had all we can stands, and we can’t stands no more.

In committing to this repugnant and crooked course of action, Trump threw every American value there is off the cliff and under the bus. He has shown no veneration whatsoever toward the most powerful office in the world, no less his own country’s. He used it as a normal man would dirty socks.

The crooked, lying Republicans, whose capacity to tell the truth has committed hara-kiri, are no better whatsoever. Long after they’ve left office, they will be reviled, and their legacy will be bitterly repudiated. Their names will become curses to be hurled at the failures of tomorrow. With a president like this one, who needs kings?

Going forward, a new chapter of battle begins. Our bullets and swords are our words and ideas, meaning we need Original Content! Fresh memes, fresh articles, fresh anything you can dream up. The act of beginning has magic in it, and the world needs that power now more than ever. #ImpeachAndRemove will all at once be hymn, marching tune, and clarion call for Democrats.

U.N. Condemns Trump’s Recognition of Jerusalem- Global Stability On Edge.

Donald Trump has got us into the worst fix yet, this time.

The United Nations voted overwhelmingly to condemn his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Some 128 countries voted for the resolution, while nine voted “no,” and 35 nations abstained, including Canada, Mexico and Australia.

This was about the only respectable thing to do. Rash, reckless, and random is not what adult human beings are about.

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley angrily issued a direct threat from the US to pull funding from the world body if it voted to condemn Trump’s decision.

“The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in this assembly,” Haley said. “We will remember it when we are called upon to once again make the world’s largest contribution” to the UN.

Haley said the US will put its embassy in Jerusalem regardless of the vote.
There was also a threat from Trump himself, who mentioned the UN vote at a Wednesday Cabinet meeting. “We’re watching those votes,” the President said. “Let them vote against us, we’ll save a lot. We don’t care.”
But only a few countries allowed themselves to be cowed by the bullying of Trump, who doesn’t even have the support of his own people, much less of the U.N. or NATO.
Millennial Democrats would like to express our solidarity with the rest of the world’s community. This is an outrage to most of us, too. We hate this awful guy. We fervently hope that the rest of Earth will forgive us his stupidity and sloven. We will make it right as soon as he is gone.
Nation after nation castigated the US at the emergency session of the UN General Assembly, and with good reason. The very fact that an emergency assembly had to be called, because something Trump did caused an emergency, is proof that this administration presents a terribly serious risk for world peace.
Furthermore, it is a violation of international law that leaves the United States and her citizens largely isolated.
And worst of all, we have now got a fracture point in the global order we can’t fix.
This is what Vladimir Putin has been after for a long time. Big trouble everywhere. Destabilization. A cloud of chaos, to cloak an evil plan of world domination. The whole thing reads more like a Japanese manga than it does a serious political discourse. But these are the times we live in.
Speaker after speaker at the UN emphasized their want to dissociate themselves from what Trump did as much as possible. We’re all but cut off because of it. It’s as if we’ve returned in time to the days of Charles Lindbergh, America First, and total isolationism as a policy.
Palestinian Ambassador Riyad Mansour declared that the decision destroyed Washington’s ability to act as a mediator in peace talks between them and the Israelis, which truly is deplorable. It’s as though Trump is determined to alienate every ally we’ve got.
“What does this decision serve?” asked Mansour. “It serves the powers of extremism … Does the United States not wonder why it stands isolated, and why even its closest allies couldn’t turn a blind eye to this decision?”
“Your threats imperil global peace,” said Venezuela’s representative to the UN, Samuel Moncada Acosta.
“This decision is an outrageous assault to all universal values,” Turkey’s Ambassador to the UN, Feridun Sinirliolu, said.  “You can be strong, but this doesn’t make you right.”
Trump isn’t right or strong, but he is in charge of the executive apparatus of the most powerful empire the world has ever seen. The capacity of the United States to exert influence is all but boundless, for good or for evil. And having a madman employed by a foreign dictator at the helm of it is a worst-case scenario waiting to happen for humanity.
Putin is playing the most dangerous game of Russian roulette in the history of mankind, and with the gun held to the head of all humanity. If we get unlucky, and things break down the wrong fracture point, we’ve got the power to kill ourselves completely. We didn’t have that before.
The Turkish president Erdogan is right about Jerusalem being a red line for Muslims. It’s a red line for Christians and Jews, also. And if history has proven one thing without a doubt, it’s that wars fought over religion get really ugly.
We are taking the position that something like the U.N. resolution had to happen, in order to try and calm this situation down. We’re grateful they did it. It’s a big relief to know that sane world leaders like Angela Merkel are still around to keep things from falling apart entirely. America is completely deadlocked with this shambles of a man in charge of it.
Donald Trump had better wake up and realize this is not a game before people start getting killed.
