Witch Hunt? Lynching? Coup d’état?

Donald J. Trump needs to rethink his contempt for the U.S. Constitution and thank its framers for authoring an orderly impeachment / removal procedure. While that’s not the same due process protections afforded ordinary citizens, he still has no good reason to fear a witch hunt, lynching and coup d’état.

Indeed, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has not hired a carpenter to build a pillory. She’s not been frequenting Home Depot ISO heavy duty rope, either. As for her being a proficient military tank commander / driver / gunner? Nah… she just doesn’t seem to be the White House gate crasher / blow the front doors to smithereens type. Hell, it’s doubtful she even owns a bullhorn suitable for issuing her “GET THE HELL OUT OR ELSE!” ultimatum.

Anyway, if Donny is as virtuous, innocent and misunderstood as he claims to be, would not an Impeachment Inquiry provide the perfect, Perfect, PERFECT venue for him to prove it, Prove It, PROVE IT?

Even if he winds up impeached, anyway, the unscrupulous, soulless, spineless U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his like-minded toady underlings can be counted on to elevate rightwing partisanship over righteous patriotism… i.e., they’ll be amenable to allowing a thug to remain holed up within his oval hideout.

Even if Mitch doesn’t march in Trumpian lockstep,  Donny still has all the judges that money can buy. According to an August 5, 2019 NPR report…

“In the 2 1/2 years that Trump has been in office, his administration has appointed nearly 1 in 4 of the nation’s federal appeals court judges and 1 in 7 of its district court judges.” (read more here)

And those stats don’t even begin to factor in the U.S. Supreme / Extreme Court’s conservative bloc… inclusive of the fake prez’s handpicked, sycophantic pals, Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch. Hell, they’d bend over both backward and forward to rule in the Trumpster’s favor… and against America.

Speaking of anti-America dudes… Donny also has one final trump card to play. Russia’s Putin. Come Election Day 2020, Big Bad Vlad could easily finish off his no shots fired overthrow of America… i.e., do his damnedest to keep his puppet / ventriloquist’s dummy propped up in the Oval Office… and make his second term a lifetime appointment, to boot.

America would then wind up dead. And anyone who’d fail to kiss Trump rump would wind up dead, too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meet Gangbangers Truncheon and Puma

 

Once upon a time there were two gangbanger hoodlums whose street names were Truncheon and Puma. Actually… both were corrupt, wretched, wicked little boys, who were each vying for absolute power… for total domination of their respective home turf. They were also surreptitiously plotting to overthrow each other.

To that end Truncheon… as his very name suggests… was relying heavily on his swaggering, overbearing, temperamental MO… one where he’d hammer in his wildly unpopular, multifaceted POV… thoughtlessly pummel his nation’s economy, ecology and society while, simultaneously, exhibiting his zero tolerance for dissent.

Indeed, he flat out demanded unconditional love from each and every, average Jane and Joe citizen who he attempted to dominate. In the process all he actually accomplished was wringing out every ounce of hope from anyone who could still think for themselves.

Naturally, these disgruntled and depressed gals and guys fully realized that Truncheon was leading everyone off a cliff… that his rule could only result in a stagnant and retrograde society… perhaps even leading up to an apocalyptic end to said society.

But alas… the knowledgeable were amongst a dying breed.

Additionally, decades worth of Truncheon’s likeminded, predecessor gang leaders and propagandists had laid in the devious, devastating, cancerous, perhaps irreversible groundwork… thereby making any lasting, civilized change everyone could believe in next to impossible to achieve… let alone maintain.

Thereby ensuring Truncheon his absolute power… which corrupts absolutely.

On the other hand, Puma… as his very name suggests… was far more catlike… deviously relying on brains over brawn, stealthy, manipulative, sneaky little shit tactics. He did so, even to the point of sucking up to Truncheon, who ignorantntly, simplistically and erroneously believed Puma to be his staunch ally.

Needless to say… nothing could’ve been further from the truth!

You see… Puma fully realized he could affect a no-shots-fired coup d’état… oust gang leader Truncheon and then casually waltz in to usurp his turf. To accomplish that feat, all Puma had to do was bide his time… sit back and laugh his ass off while watching harebrained Truncheon’s do-it-yourself self-destruction of his nation’s individuals and infrastructure.

The End
