Trump’s floundering attorneys at (f)law, in collusion with the ginormous gaggle of grasping at straws, tin foil hat donning Republican conspiracy theorists, oft attempt to foist off their shared, flaccid fairy tale that Democrats, by dusting off the legitimate Impeachment process, are attempting to tear up the 62,979,636 ballots cast for their boy Donny.
What these right wing, wingnuts fail to acknowledge is how  the Framers of America’s Constitution had conceived of this very impeachment process, just in case voters, someday, inadvertently, wind up empowering a hostile to America candidate AND  that that someday HAS arrived!
To tear up that Trumpian false narrative…
• Had the voters been able to correctly detect Donny’s dictatorial demeanor and corrupt MO, just how many of them would’ve still cast ballots for him?
• Chances are that Hillary Clinton’s already impressive popular vote tally… 65,844,610… would’ve even more substantially trumped Trump’s… and she’d have emerged America’s 45th POTUS.
• Republicans’ “come to the defense of the voter” stance, at its best, is hypocrisy… at its worst it’s a brazen bald-faced lie. True, they may not tear up ballots, but it’s their Fascist voter suppression tactics that prevent those ballots from ever getting cast in the first place.

‘If you don’t know, now you know.”
Jay Sekulow, who is one of Donald J. Trump’s shameless mouthpieces at the Senate Impeachment Trial, appeared to be mystified when he asked, “Why are we here?”
Of course, what else can poor Jay do but feign ignorance? Theatrics is his only defense tool… i.e. seeing how  he could never, possibly, muster a legitimate, cogent refutation of the spot-on, damning Articles of Impeachment and  his client doesn’t even realize it when he’s constantly, publicly incriminating himself.
We must commend the House Impeachment Manager Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) for even entertaining the notion that Sekulow could actually be akin to a genuinely mystified toddler, who so desperately needs to be spoon-fed the following facts…
Just in case this YouTube clip ever “vanishes”, let’s back that up in text form, too…
“We are here, sir, because President Trump pressured a foreign government to target an American citizen for political and personal gain. We are here, sir, because President Trump solicited foreign interference in the 2020 election and corrupted our democracy. We are here, sir, because President Trump withheld $391 million in military aid from a vulnerable Ukraine; without justification; in a manner that has been deemed unlawful. We are here, sir, because President Donald Trump elevated his personal, political interests and subordinated the national security interests of the United States of America. We are here, sir, because President Trump corruptly abused his power and then he tried to cover it up. And we are here, sir, to follow the facts, apply the law, be guided by the Constitution, and present the truth to the American people. That is why we are here, Mr. Sekulow. And ‘if you don’t know, now you know.’”
Jeffries’ closing line quotes Notorious B.I.G.’s (NSFW) rap from his 1994 hit, Juicy.
Yesterday, courtesy of YouTube, I featured Live PBS coverage of the U.S. Senate’s Impeachment Trial of Donald J. Trump.
Today, I UN-feature it. Why?
For starters… Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell… no big surprise… has now hit rock bottom… has been following through on his recent public promise to NOT be impartial… which… btw… flips off the oath he took to behave otherwise.
As usual, McConnell’s assessment is dead wrong. Contrast that with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s intent, which transcends mere politics. Her House of Representatives’ primary goals have been to preserve, protect and defend the U.S. Constitution… to preserve the sanctity of our ballot box… to save America from tyranny.
ULTIMATELY… Pelosi is telling Trump’s bff, Vladimir Putin, to go F himself!
Obviously McConnell and his fellow subversive Republicans do not take any of Pelosi’s concerns seriously, anymore.
Which brings us back to why I’m no longer streaming the trial…
Right from the get-go, Mitch and his entire Trumpian band of bootlickers, have been putting on a shameless, spineless, valueless exhibition that’s a monumental embarrassment to America. As such, I’d be ashamed to have any of you see it.
This blog’s posting time marks the beginning of the historic, Impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump. Americans and many others spanning the whole world… will all be watching, intently, to see if U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts are honorable men, who’ll be able to  elevate patriotism over partisanship,  preside over a trial complete with witness testimony and presented evidence AND  pursue the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth… wherever that truth shall lead them.
While that is, precisely, what these high and mighty entities are under oath to do AND owe each and every American, alas, what We the People will likely get is quite predictable… namely…
The lurid, obscene spectacle of the Republican dominated Senate’s members, all standing at attention to salute… to lay bare… their undying, undue lust for dictator Donald J. Trump.
