“Trump, Impeachment & Forgetting What Brought Him to the White House”

There is almost nothing good to say about either side in this matter.

A rude, corrupt, dishonest, loud-mouthed, belligerent President or a scheming, corrupt, dishonest, mercenary, war-mongering Congress.

It is the American condition that virtually none of these people, none of America’s leaders, is worthy of praise.

The entire impeachment business is one more piece of dumb-show theater in Washington, theater which distracts from, and obscures, the ugly real workings of imperial government.

We should remember that the trail of events leading to the threat of impeachment goes back to an American-induced and paid-for coup against an elected government in Ukraine, a coup approved by that smiling Peace Prize winner, Obama, the same man who brought hell on earth to Libya and Syria, and there were no objections to speak of from Congress.

If they actually get around to a trial, which I tend to doubt will happen, the participants should perhaps wear frock coats and wigs and offer solemn scripted speeches about “pledging scared honor.”

It would considerably enhance the theatrics of the occasion, while off to the side, they starve people in a half dozen lands, bomb the crap out of people in another half dozen lands, run a massive hi-tech international extrajudicial killing operation, and support incredibly bloody tyrants like the Saudi Crown Prince, the Generalissimo of Egypt, and the thug Prime Minister of Israel.

These considerations on aspects of the impeachment, stressing its political nature, may be interesting to readers:
