The News coverage and impeachment hearings resemble Pravda and the Soviet show trials of the past. Secret courts, hidden testimony, with carefully leaked and coordinated daily nuggets of damnation.
It is impressive that Americans will follow this without at least a little surprise and a few questions. The prevailing attitude seems to be, “Oh, well.” The facts, circumstances and consequences have no part, as long as the Deep Hate can provide something unpleasant.
The Deep Hate lives in the The Swamp. It keeps poking up from the muck as Trump’s Presidency continues to open the drain.
The new “evidence” against the President sounds silly in proper context. He asked the new President of the Ukraine to investigate corruption involving the former Administration of the United States. If there is truth to it, we had eight years of truly questionable administration under Obama and Biden that should certainly be exposed and not continued.
If it is true.
If it is not true, it would have fallen away quietly with the Ukrainian report. What is the status of that report, by the way?
One irony in this dirty mess is that the exact charges leveled against Trump first appeared as fabrications manufactured by the Democrats to destroy Trump before he was elected in 2016 by the same crowd that violated Bernie Sanders and the Democrats who supported him.
The greatest irony, however, is that the truth is not upsetting. Trump asked for an investigation, leveraging money already allocated to the Ukraine. Applying this standard of Impeachment faithfully and consistently would mean nobody could ever be President. And assurances are strong that the next President will be treated normally again . . . as long as he stays away from the Deep Hate that owns us.
We had a good run as a nation.
