Rand Paul says Trump impeachment case is 'DEAD ON ARRIVAL' after US senators support his motion to declare trial unconstitutional

https://on.rt.com/b0du

"Only five Republican senators opposed a motion by colleague Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) to declare Donald Trump's impeachment trial unconstitutional, signaling that Democrats won't have enough votes to convict the former president.

'Forty-five Senators agreed that this sham of a trial is unconstitutional,' Paul said on Twitter. 'This is more than will be needed to acquit and to eventually end this partisan impeachment process. This trial is dead on arrival in the Senate.'

 

The Democrat administration already appears weak and unsure of itself. And compared to his glory days in the Obama administration, Joe Biden is clearly elderly with an obviously diminished cognitive capacity. Sometimes it looks like he has problems even being on his feet let alone thinking on them. 

As well his spokesperson Jen Psaki seems quite akward and unprepared, even with a toothless and easy honeymoon press corps. And what's with all these 'executive orders' even though Dems own all three branches? The US presidency is a pressure cooker  and I just don't see Uncle Joe being up to it without others doing the actual operating and steering. I wonder who that might be?

Most Republicans senators like the far rightist Rand Paul are putting partisan politics ahead of justice as their first priority is insuring that their party is not divided by Trump. Like any fascist leader, Trump is threatening to destroy members of  his party who don't follow him. Senators know that if they vote to impeach Trump they will face death threats from Trump's cult of personality.  How long can this game of chicken within the Republican Party continue without something giving? History will record that current Republicans put their party before their country, even in the face of growing fascism. 2021 is looking like 1931. Fascism cannot be appeased.

Chris Hedges: How Republicans, Democrats and the media have weakened US Democracy

https://youtu.be/B2jyzp09_g8

"The Biden Democrats will seed the ground for a 'competent' fascist and the only thing that saved us from a coup d'etat is Trump's disorganization and ineptitude."

"Chris Hedges talks about the many ways traditional media, digital media and the two political parties have worked to prevent progressive movements and given rise to the growth of the extreme right."

Will it happen? No. Americans wikll continue to vote Republican. They are not Conservatives, they are full out fascist. No more hyperbole. Let's call it for what it is.

Sorry but in "Wiemar" USA - 2021 there are only two parties and they are both controlled by portions of the oligarchy. In 1931 in Germany there were nine parties in the legislature including Social Democrats and also many Communists who like the Nazi's openly called for systemic change of the form of government. Then there were the small matters of reparations and hyper inflation. The German oligarchy was not in control of the politcal agenda nor were they in control of the mass media which was radio and pamphlets and arena galas.

To be blunt I am sick of hearing about Nazi Germany because it has no relation to the current political reality either in the US or internationally. There are lots of authoritarian precedents around the globe for the kinds of oligarchic infighting going on in America but it is not 1931 Germany.

The 'Insurrection' and its Discontents: 'American Exceptionalism' Revisited

https://www.mintpressnews.com/insurrection-discontents-american-exceptio...

"While mainstream US media has conveniently attributed all of America's ills to the unruly character of outgoing President Donald Trump, the truth is not quite so convenient. The US has been experiencing an unprecedented political influx at every level of society for years, leading us to believe that the rowdy years of Trump's presidency were a mere symptom, not the cause of America's political instability.

Regardless of what may transpire in the official investigations of the Capitol's upheaval, US political polarization, the breakdown between the public and the ruling elites, along with their media allies, will continue unabated. Undoubtedly, the consequences will be dire. But there is another consequential crisis that is also brewing. 'American exceptionalism', a rare meeting point between Democrats and Republicans, is facing its greatest challenge since its coinage sometime in the mid 17th century.

Surely, the storming of the US Congress will have global repercussions, not least among them the collective rejection of the outdated notion of American exceptionalism. But with that there is also an opportunity: first for Americans to swap 'manufactured consent' for real dialogue; to salvage and eventually, renew trust in their democratic institutions and second, for the world to challenge America's hegemonic discourse of fraudulent democracy and other self-serving fables."

Who knew!

The Guardian needs to share with its readership things we don't already know. And the brain-dead GOP fell for it as well, hook line and sinker. No wonder the QAnon nutbars and the folks who support them, and peddle their nonsense on social media as well as the MSM, have made such inroads into the Republican Party.

The Real Scandal Is the Pardon Trump Didn’t Give

Rufus Rochell checked all the right boxes for clemency: an exemplary record in prison, advocacy out of it, and a friendship with a famous Trump booster. So why didn’t he get it?
