JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: EVENTS AT THE UNITED STATES CAPITOL BUILDING WERE CHAOS, AND IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND MEANINGFUL PATTERNS IN CHAOS – BUT THE AFTERMATH LEAVES US WITH TWO CERTAINTIES – THE UNITED STATES IS A DEEPLY AND DANGEROUSLY DIVIDED NATION AND AMERICAN POLITICS HAVE BECOME POISONOUS – THERE ARE NO EASY FIXES – THERE IS NO SERIOUS LEADERSHIP IN THE COUNTRY AND THE PRIVILEGED ARE READY TO GIVE UP NOTHING – A STARK COMPARISON OF AMERICA AND CHINA IN THEIR GLOBAL EFFORTS   Leave a comment

Trump Impeached Amid Efforts to Silence Him

Trump has been impeached again and this time the Republican-controlled Senate may convict to keep him from running in 2024, as Democrat-aligned big tech moves to shut him up

I’m not sure any of the details and legalities of the Capitol gate-crashing event can ever be satisfactorily sorted. It was chaos, and it is hard to find patterns in chaos.

But in the aftermath, two things are certain.

America is a badly divided nation, one divided along some very dangerous lines.

And American politics, always under the withering influence of big money, are now also grown poisonous.

I see no easy fixes.

Joe Biden is not an inspired leader, and his political party is just about as dedicated to the status quo as the Republicans are.

At the same time, the country continues to waste a fortune on its military and security service ventures around the world.

While China builds, everywhere, America threatens and sanctions and blockades and assassinates and destroys in many places. Which approach do you think builds a healthy, long-term future?

America’s attitudes are virtually all bristling with various hostilities, and it can’t even summon the strength of cooperation and helpfulness in fighting a pandemic.
