Impeach or Not to Impeach—That Is the Question

by Gregory B. Gonzalez

Donald Trump is an idiot.

And it shouldn’t come to anyone’s surprise that his followers aren’t much brighter. Just the other day, some mouthbreather on Facebook tried to sucker me into debating with him, and I was like, “We don’t have the same frame of reference- I speak the King’s English. I’m not fluent in moron!” He kept egging me on until I finally responded with, “Wow. SOMEBODY’S feeling insecure about his manhood today. Are you going to call your mommy on me, too?”

That was pretty much that.

I dunno about you, but I’m pretty much getting tired of the whole impeachment discussion. I mean, let’s get serious- it’s probably never going to happen for three reasons: 1. It’s an election year, 2. It will die in the Senate, and 3. It might not even be necessary.

Besides, the majority of Americans don’t want it, and less than half of the House of Representatives support it. Nancy Pelosi is playing it correctly in that she’s allowing Trump to immolate himself every day. Look, we all know he’s a liar and a crook and that he’s running the country into the ground, but the plain truth of the matter is that if they impeach and don’t convict, chances are the Dems will be handing Trump a second term on a silver platter.  

The far better tactic is to keep the threat of impeachment alive because it’s the only thing that will keep Trump occupied. Would you rather have him whining on Twitter or doing more damage to the country? I dunno about you, but I’d rather he rage tweets about impeachment and not be provoking a war with Iran that we can’t win without a colossal loss of life on both sides.

And as if that’s not enough to deal with, now a knuckle-dragging biker gang wants to get involved. Artie Muller, the 74-year old leader of Rolling Thunder, has pledged to overrun the capitol with thousands of bikers if Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi decides to impeach, calling her an ‘arrogant little bitch’. As if Donald Trump is the soul of humility.

Give me a break. First of all, I wouldn’t be the slightest bit scared of some 74-year old guy who went by the name, ‘Artie’. And yes, I do know of this guy’s background. I know he is a Vietnam veteran who has fought for vet’s rights and advocated for P.O.W.’S and M.I.A. soldiers, which I respect him for, but he is sorely mistaken if he thinks that Trump gives a shit about the veterans. You only need to utter the name of John McCain as evidence of that fact. Trump hates him so much that he went to the trouble of having the ship that bears his name hidden away so that Trump wouldn’t become enraged at the sight of it. I guess now we know what triggers him.

Hey, Melania! If you really ever want to piss off your husband, next time you have sex with him, (after retching, of course,) scream out, “JOHN MCCAIN!” as you fake your orgasm. He’ll probably have an aneurysm on the spot. You’ll become a national hero overnight!

Anyway, getting back to Artie Muller and Rolling Thunder riding into the capitol, I mean, what’s he going to do- roll up in his walker? Toss his dentures at Pelosi when she leaves the capitol building? I guarantee you that if he called for his boys in to storm Washington, they’d stay home to drink a 12-pack of beer and binge watch a few seasons’ worth of SONS OF ANARCHY.

Take it easy, Artie- the age of John Rambo is over. Go see the new movie and take a box of kleenex. I’m pretty sure Rambo ain’t walking away from this one.

At any rate, everyone needs to slow their roll. Trump is dug in like a tick at this point- we can rip out the body, but the head will still be embedded under the skin. Believe me, I want that thin-skinned, tangerine-tinted, malodorous gasbag out of the White House as much as the next person, but I’m being realistic about it.

Yeah, I know I’m gonna get reamed by a lot of my readers, but you know I’m probably right. I honestly wish I wasn’t,  but in the last few years, I’ve pretty much lost hope in any politician doing what’s right for the country.

My advice? Vote in the primaries, stand behind the eventual nominee, and tell everyone you know who didn’t vote in 2016 to get off their ass and VOTE in November 2020!

    74 year old biker? Hmm, I resemble that remark, but I have misgivings about the impeachment thing as a solution to the rolling bullshit roaring across the country. Even if we come up with a smoking gun, he will retain 100% of his support and as long as the mythology persists and Fox broadcasts it, he’s going to get re-elected. I know, there’s still a chance he will lose, but Nixon and Bush and even Reagan got two terms. If he manages to start a war, it will be a shoo in.

    And yes, it will be our fault. I admit that the image of the burly biker with his Trumpy Bear tied to the apes who thinks the big pig is helping him, even as he puts Harley out of business, has some truth to it, the man-bun hipster on his 400 hp sport bike, in flip-flops and a bathing suit, doing 140 in the carpool lane isn’t going to vote at all – unless maybe, the ballot is printed on organic, free range, fair trade, gluten free paper.

    I agree with you Greg. Impeachment at this point would do more harm than good. The time to have had an impeachment was lost in his first moments in office. I remember writing in a post that the people would soon be missing Obama as soon as Trump got elected. Hopefully, this will be the end of saying that rich people and or business people being will make good presidents. Being president entails for more than looking at a balance sheet at the end of each quarter. Trump has seriously damaged the reputation of this country as well as being directly responsible for exploding the national debt, and setting up several billion dollars for himselfand his family.

    Also too look back at Watergate, the public did not want impeachment back then either but when the hearings started and things got brought out into the light of day, opinions changed and then Nixon’s head was wanted so he had to gtfo. I am of the opinion it does not matter one whit if it fails in the senate, he needs to be impeached yo show the mouth breathers and paste eaters of America what he has done that merits his gtfo of our WH and should it happen the election comes first and he is tossed out on his ass so be it but he still needs to pay for his criminal activity both he and his grifting family.

      I share your contempt. I want to see him dragged out in chains and at gunpoint, but Trump is a religious figure and not one of his devotees with believe a thing we prove and he will, like Obiwon become more powerful if we strike him down. If we try and fail, he will certainly become more dangerous and his party is insane enough to declare the impeachment null and void and suspend congress and declare martial law. tens of millions will applaud and take to the streets. I know that’s paranoid, but such things have happened. If I lived near Fort Sumter, I would leave town.

    He won’t be impeached. He’ll get a second term. The world turns.

    Assuming he doesn’t cause it to blow up of course…. 😜

    Glenn, just wrote out my worse fears. Trump, unlike Nixon, has retained his base through all of this. No matter what he has done it has not put a serious dent in his base support. The Republican Party is different now. If you listen closely you can hear the crackling sound of a country’s political system as it crumbles under his feet. The Republicans can almost smell the burning of the Consitution as it written. I believe that Trump may be the first president this intent on destroying the American political system and a movement of imperialism. Most all presidents have sought to bend the will of the people just enough to get some things done. However, Trump and the Republican Party would turn us into another Russia type government if they can. Why? Because absolute power becomes absolute, and it has taken a man who acts like a child perpetually in his “terrible twos”. Unless the Democrats get their act together we may be witnessing the demise of a once great democracy.
