These articles of impeachment will forever remain in history. President Trump will forever have on his track record these two monolithic articles. The Democrats in unity proved that The President’s actions are never to supersede the needs and the goals of America. Yet however historical this may be, for the President to be removed, 2/3 of the Senate would have to vote in Favor.
The Republicans have 53 seats in The Senate, while the Democrats have 45. There are 2 Independents. 100 seats in total.
For these articles to successfully move through the Senate, they would both need votes totaling 2/3 of this current Senate, meaning several Republicans would have to vote in favor. But will this happen? Will Republicans look onward without any disdain for the President, or might some look beyond political affiliation and hold the President accountable for abuse of his awesome power?
The fact that Speak of The House Nancy Pelosi is considering holding the two articles in The House, this may come down to the Democrats letting the impact of the articles directly affect Trump’s re-election odds as opposed to taking it any further. It may be in fact that they fear a lack of Republican support, and that they would rather let historians study the ramifications and the significance of these articles against President Trump.
Trump, despite his own superego has already been deeply affected. He knew this was coming, but until it happened he didn’t know how. He almost lacks the ability to significantly care, and it is certain that Democrats fear of the damage possible if Republicans follow Trump blindly.
Because where is Trump going? He knows he won’t be our last President, right?
I say this, because she has already proven to be an efficient military leader. Also as such, she is also a very vocal political representative of her people, of the beautiful state of Hawaii.
Obama was born in Hawaii.
She stands for The American People. She swore in to serve her country, and as a leader, she has had various opportunities to endure the art of war. She now is a continuing Officer for The United States Army, and 15 years in, she works in conjunction with Congress and The House of Representatives to ensure that the people’s needs are met, and voices are heard.
She has a profound argument, which should be resonating with every American, and that message is that we are fighting too many wars.
She must have heard a voice say, “when are we going to end these wars?”
She argues that there is now to be a time for an era of peace; an era without war. A world, where we no longer butt our heads into foreign affairs, where other Nations perhaps may violently conflict with one another.
She argues for diplomacy well above the art of war.
An era without an obsessive desire to topple a Nation’s regime.
I believe that it will take an enormous amount of courage to accomplish, but I also believe that if we could, this great nation would save Trillions of dollars, which would open various paths for us to begin to more so invest more in our great Nation’s development.
So, I’ll dream of perhaps, 100 years without war. I’ll dream of 100 years without The United States of America fighting another country. I’ll dream of a century of prosperity, and better educational options, of enhanced health care, of massive infrastructural projects, better housing and decreased debts.
I’ll dream of a world without war, our world without war.
So, if even not for a century, maybe just a decade without conflict with another Nation, and era where The USA can focus vehemently on social justice and reforms that would help millions of more Americans prosper, and not have to stand idly, as decisions are made that inadvertently hinder the success of many American Dreamers, and not just those that, in today’s society, come here with the prospect of discovering just how truly amazing The American Dream can be.
Too early to call, obviously, I anxiously await to see her on the debate stage.
The obvious answer is very strong. Hundreds of billions of dollars is now spent annually on America’s Defense. The United States Army is as strong as ever, and every other branch appears to exist without much flaw. As a matter of fact, one can conduct a bit of research and decipher that often times, too much is spent on the Department of Defense. Whirlwind headlines of Navy coffee mugs costing thousands of dollars can be a prime example of a Nation’s military with a budget that appears to have no end.
So my question is, with a military spread all over the entire world and allies spanning every continent, why has The President declared a State of Emergency?
The U.S. Government was recently Shut down for over 31 days, the longest recorded government shutdown in recorded history. With a military so strong, in a robust and prosperous Capitalist society, a shutdown is now the tail end to what appears to be a declaration of an emerging crisis.
In recent month’s time, there were reports of an invasion along the southern border, an actual cry from the President which has led him to orchestrate a campaign of border defense. His campaign includes most importantly, a 2000 mile long border wall between The U.S. and Mexico. Without rehashing the terrible war of words President Trump has had with others over this wall, it is easy to understand that he was incapable of acquiring the funds necessary to complete his campaign promise of building a massive border wall.
This, only days after a month long Government Shutdown, and after only acquiring 1 billion dollars of the 30+ or so billion dollars needed for his project, The President has now issued a State of Emergency.
How long does this remain in effect? Who does it effect? Are we as weak as he perceives? What is to come?
Perhaps the most important question may be, are we going to be invaded?
What a world of conspiracy. This is no Russian folk tale.
In a powerful display of opposition to President Trump announcing a complete withdrawal of troops from Syria, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis submitted his letter of resignation. The letter, pictured below, highlights many facets that General Mattis enjoyed while Secretary of Defense, but the letter also plainly States to the President that he does not agree with the decision to withdraw troops from Syria, arguing that the move abandons allies on the battlefield.
Despite the resignation of General Mattis, and what appears to be a bipartisan pushback from both Republicans and Democrats, President Trump remains resilient in his decision to withdraw troops, explaining to the American People that ISIS has been defeated, and that he has been more successful than any President in modern history in defeating ISIS.
Several officials and News outlets have reported that the decision to withdraw troops was not advised by Senior military officials or The Pentagon, and that this is move done largely in part by Donald Trump.
Again, despite pushback from every angle, Trump remains resilient in downsizing the battlefields overseas, with rumors now floating the agenda that The President also intends to withdraw as many as 9,000 troops from Afghanistan as early as January.
General Mattis served four decades in The United States Marine Corps. He ends his career on a high note, putting countrymen and his allies before self. He will officially depart Trump’s Administration February 2019.
While it grows to unite us, it tears us a part. The divisiveness of it all has become overtly disheartening. There are factions who want more for Americans, to include more healthcare and more education, and there are those who oppose those views, arguing that it would bankrupt the entire country. Some argue for a socialist agenda, others argue for capitalism to continue to reign supreme.
In the midst of all of the arguing and debate, The American citizen suffers. Their suffering, our suffering, it transcends just physical pain. It is also emotional. The imagery we see from neighboring states, the rhetoric of elected politicians, and our military involvement around the world can at times be too much for some Americans to stomach. For others, there isn’t enough defense spending and citizenry bashing to go around.
We are entering quite trivial times. Our economy may appear to be performing well, but the debt continues to climb. We are treating foreigners seeking asylum like enemy combatants, mobilizing thousands of Active Duty troops to defend us from a faux invasion. Citizens are dying from aid they cannot receive for lack of healthcare. Teenagers are signing their lives away to ever growing college tuition rates. The Government says that climate change is real, and that it will impact us all if we do not change our ways, and The President of The United States, Donald Trump, discredits it. He doesn’t believe it. At all.
We live in incredibly disheartening times. Of course, we will continue to be our best in this world. Many will suffer daily, and some will be successful. Others will aspire for success, while battling life’s many obstacles. The Republican narrative is that “hand outs” are a really bad thing, but many Americans are suffering beyond repair. Perhaps a hand-out wouldn’t suffice.
“The American Dream is dead.”
-Donald John Trump, 45th President of The United States of America
The time of the year is upon us, where citizens across The United States of America now have the chance to exercise their rights and vote into office the candidates they believe will best represent them as Mayors, Governors, and congressional representatives in both The House and The Senate.
This Tuesday, November 6th 2018 is Election Day. Commonly referred to as The Midterms, this marks a day where we’ll essentially see either The Republican party maintain their dominance across the country, or The Democrats gaining much needed representation and control in The House or The Senate, to begin their process of amending many of the decisions Republicans have made.
For The Democrats, it is crucial that enough representatives are elected to seize control of either The House or The Senate, or both. If not, and if their campaigning fails as it did during the Presidential Election of 2016, where Donald Trump managed to seize victory over long-time Government server Hillary Clinton, The United States of America could begin to see policy implementation by The Republicans ramp up. Americans could also see the eradication of The Obama Era Healthcare Plan, an end to Birthright Citizenship, and tremendous cuts to spending on Social aid (Medicaid and Social Security).
It is important to vote.
Regardless of your party affiliation, if you feel concerned about a topic, or wish for change in your neighborhood and society, it is important to vote. As a registered Democrat, I am eager to vote, and I hope to see The Democrats pull off significant power grabs in Congress. As someone who voted in 2016 for a Democrat to be President, I’ve learned that polls are are no longer a trustworthy source to grasp voter turnout demographics. This year, the message is clear: go out and vote.
Come Tuesday, we decide the direction our country moves in. Vote for what you believe in. If Donald Trump does not sit right with you, and if you demand change right now, go out and vote. Your voice can be heard, and your power to vote can and will change the entire course of this Nation. It is of utmost importance, and I urge anyone who reads this, to go out and vote.
It’s safe to say that the President of the United States is not a fan of the Democratic Establishment. His current barrage of insults now paints the Democratic Party as a mob. While a lot of his banter stands to be political hyperbole (such as joking about a fellow Republican slamming a reporter), his words do and will continue to have lasting effects across The Republic.
President Trump, hailing his victory of electing new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, has begun a narrative of accusing the Democratic party of assimilating into a mob.
He isn’t the only Republican doing so.
Donald Trump is joined by the likes of other incredibly notable Republicans, to include Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, in an effort to now taint the image of The Democratic Party after a series of protests erupted on Washington following the selection process of Justice Kavanaugh. This narrative may prove to be effective for The Republicans. While many liberal minded Democrats and Independents may grow increasingly weary of the antics that are currently on display at The White House, Trump’s fan base and current iron grip over American politics can not be over looked. In just 2 years, Donald Trump has managed to elect two Supreme Court Judges, pass deregulatory tax legislation, and increase Federal Spending on key Conservative agendas.
Although Donald Trump may not be what we of The Democratic Party have envisioned as a true born leader since Obama departed (an individual with tenacity who invokes change and who can be a strong orator and voice the America that embodies unity and the growth of the working class), and while Liberals and Independents alike will undoubtedly come to the incredulous conclusion that President Trump may embody the personification of a true American Fascist, his campaign style, brutish antics and general display of lacking empathy for his opposers must not go unrevered. Donald Trump is a rich man’s best friend, and consistently comes out swinging from all angles at the opposition. Currently he’s systematically showing The USA a glimpse into the world of something far more dangerous than mob rule, and that’s one-party rule.
He is succeeding at this, too.
