"We're in a permanent coup
" says...Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone fame.
My discomfort in the last few years, first with Russiagate and now with Ukrainegate and impeachment, stems from the belief that the people pushing hardest for Trump’s early removal are more dangerous than Trump. Many Americans don’t see this because they’re not used to waking up in a country where you’re not sure who the president will be by nightfall. They don’t understand that this predicament is worse than having a bad president.
The Trump presidency is the first to reveal a full-blown schism between the intelligence community and the White House. Senior figures in the CIA, NSA, FBI and other agencies made an open break from their would-be boss before Trump’s inauguration, commencing a public war of leaks that has not stopped.
I didn't vote for Trump and often wish he would pull it back a bit. But it wasn't so long ago that we were told it was "horrifying
" to question the results of an election and since November 2016 there's been a non-stop temper-tantrum that the Queen was denied her tiara. A month later, a coalition of Hollywood elites and their media buddies urged the electoral college to ignore their duty. Then, as Taibbi notes, this led to a coordinated effort by intelligence agencies to undermine the duly-elected President with a series of leaks that led to the Russia hoax and now the Ukraine hoax.
Hard to believe but up until now Nancy Pelosi has been the voice of reason against impeachment. But she's since succumbed to the AOCs and idiot Swalwells of the party and now she's backed herself into a zugzwang where she can't make a move
that won't expose the inanity of the Democrats.
So here we are: the national election is just a year away but we couldn't possibly give the American people the opportunity to choose their President. They might make the wrong choice again.
