So, why haven’t I been commenting on all of the horrible things that Trump has been doing over the last couple of weeks? Well, before I tell you why, let’s list them.
Note: I think CNN is a pretty shitty news company. Not that they do things that are illegal, or potentially illegal, like FOX News, but just that they kind of suck on ice at actually telling us the news and confronting the establishment. Still, this is a good list.
Anyway, if you enjoy strategy games like Chess as much as I do, you’re watching the moves Trump is making and realizing that he has already potentially violated the constitution several times. He is setting himself up for defeat. The real question is how good is his opponent and how much damage will he do before he is put in checkmate? Well, if his opponent is the corporate Democrats then they’ll probably ask for a stalemate before the game is over. Too weak to pursue victory, they’ll take what they can get. “Please Mr. Trump, yes Mr. Trump, I didn’t mean to win, I mean you obviously were distracted and really won after all,” will say wastes of sperm like Cory Booker.
If it’s a progressive, then checkmate fool! Sure, it will take people time to mobilize. It takes the non-progressive Democrats forever to do anything about anything, but when they do it will be easy to shut him down.
It reminds me of the North in the Civil War. Man, did it take them a long time to mobilize and do anything about the South. This might have had a lot to do with how many slaves rich white folks owned in the North too. Cough, Cough, oops I said that out loud. Turns out most of the very wealthy were always scum. Anyway… a quote from that time:
Let me tell you what is coming. After the sacrifice of countless millions of treasure and hundreds of thousands of lives, you may win Southern independence if God be not against you, but I doubt it. I tell you that, while I believe with you in the doctrine of states rights, the North is determined to preserve this Union. They are not a fiery, impulsive people as you are, for they live in colder climates. But when they begin to move in a given direction, they move with the steady momentum and perseverance of a mighty avalanche; and what I fear is, they will overwhelm the South.” — Sam Houston
So the Democrats will move. Too late, but eventually they will move and win. The question is what kind of victory do we want? Do we want a shitty, Cory Booker victory where we preserve the shitty system we had before Trump. (I am referring to this period as “the before time” by the way) or do we want to finish Bernie’s revolution. I vote for option two.
In the meantime, making Trump a lame duck is the best solution. Why you ask? Well, because if he’s impeached Mike Pence will become president and then we’re totally boned. Right now, Trump just kind of has the tip in, with no lube mind you, but just the tip. Pence will come at us all from behind, without asking, without even buying us a drink first, and without even using lube and jam the whole alt-right Republican agenda deep inside. With Trump as an ineffective lame duck president we can effectively shutdown the Republican agenda. Get rid of the corporate democrats, and put a progressive in the white house in about 4 years. We can start filling the other seats this year.
So just like in the past, your best bet is to get out there, get involved, and VOTE!
Note: Over 90 Million Eligible Voters didn’t vote in 2016.
Update: Muslim Travel Ban Suspended Temporarily.
So, some good news recently backing up my overall point here was announced today. Trump is being called out on his unconstitutional executive orders. It’s up to us to make sure it sticks.
Still, he is already attacking the environment, with the help of not just Republicans but Corporate Democrats as well. The damage that laws like lifting the methane ban, new domestic oil drilling, fracking, and not increasing fuel standards, just to name a few, will have on people and other living things should be considered a violation of the constitution as well. Think about it, we all have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We can’t even being to have those things if we don’t have the basic necessities of life like clean water and air. More deforestation will cause more erosion that may, among other thnigs, literally crush people to death. Sounds to me like not supporting reasonable environmental policies is also a violation of the constitution.
Update February 6th, 2017
The following polls put Donald Trump at the overall approval ratings. (The Average is usually about 53%)
CNN — 40% (As of Friday February 3rd)
Gallup — 43% (Through February 5th, 2017)
Washington Post — 40% (From January 17, 2017)
Fox News –Agrees with CNN polls in one article, but then also posts a lot of erroneous Fake News Articles, etc. They sometimes show separate job approval polls, but getting a straight answer out of them is hard.
I could keep going on, but it’s pretty obvious that President Trump needs to do something he is incapable of. Self-Reflection and Improvement. So this, really supports my overall claim if the Democrats grow the rocks and/or vulvas to hold him to account.
