The Mueller report is completed. It is clear that it states there was no “collusion”. None of that means that MSM, Hillbots and Blew No Matter Who cultists are going to stop screaming for more investigations into investigations that investigated investigations in the hopes of finding some hidden tidbit which Mueller and a whole team of people missed in 2 years.
Of course, the whole point of this is because they want to impeach Trump. However, if you ask them what should happen after that, you can never get a clear answer. Point out that then Pence becomes president, they scream, “Get rid of him too!” Okay, let’s say that happens. Then what?
If you got rid of Trump and Pence and the entire cabinet, none of that means the next election somes any sooner. Not even MSM wants that to happen. The campaigns stand to make too much money over the next 19 months or so. MSM will make literally billions from corporate PACs and campaign ads in that time frame. You think they want to give any of that up?
So, what would happen? Who replaces them? The chain of succession says the third person in line right now would be Nancy Pelosi.
Go ahead and call yourself a Progressive and say you want Pelosi in office. I dare you. If Pelosi took office, then what? What happens with the 2020 election? What does she do while in office?
This is all aside from the fact that removing an entire administration negates any claim of any form of democracy.
In no way does this mean that I endorse, defend or support Trump. I support the truth. I support human rights. I support awareness, which Russiagate has been and remains a detriment to.
As long as MSM and the DNC are spouting inane rhetoric about Russiagate, they are using it as a smokescreen to avoid discussing real issues which affect real lives. They have been using this smokescreen since 2016. Hillary used Russia and “But Trump!” as her campaign platform. During the 2018 midterms, the Democrats used Russia and “Resistance” as their party platform. Then the day after the midterms, Pelosi started talking about pursuing a “bipartisan agenda”. Just a few weeks ago, when it became clear Mueller was wrapping up, Pelosi said she would not pursue impeachment because “It’s just not worth it”.
On that, she was correct. With Russiagate dead, the efforts to impeach Trump would have to start all over from a different angle. Even if successful, then we would have Pence as president, for whom no rationale for impeachment has begun at all. So that would take years and would distract from presidential campaigns, along with more distractions from the issues which affect us all.
The Democrats have an important opportunity here which they are not only wasting but openly opposing. Most Americans support Medicare For All, while the Dims continue pushing the ACA. Republicans are not going to even suggest Medicare For All and would fight it ferociously. Most Americans are against any more wars. Yet it is appearing as though more Republicans than Democrats want to end at least some of our wars. Both parties are in favor of invading Venezuela. A majority of Americans support legalizing cannabis. The Democrats could adopt this as part of their party platform. If they were not in the pockets of major pharmaceutical companies which oppose legalization.
I’ve read other writers who have said Russiagate and the Mueller report have been a gift to Trump. I agree. Now and through 2020, he will now be seen as an underdog who has been wrongly attacked by the very Establishment and Deep State which the 2016 election was all about opposing for many millions of Americans. He may actually gain support as what he has claimed is shown true. Now that the Mueller report is completed, the attacks continue. “Wait for the full report!” Barr already said that will be released in redacted form by mid-April, so only 2 weeks from now.
What then? When the full report says exactly what Barr said it would say, what then? Can we stop pointing fingers, stop seeking blame and start seeking solutions? Then can we start making amends with Russia? Can we talk about the issues I mention above? Can we increase wages? Can we tax the rich so they pay their fair share? Can we start building bridges and stop building bombs? Can we stop sanctioning other countries? Can we improve public transportation? Expand renewable energy?
If we cannot use this momentum to start working on positives instead of staying in a cycle of one party against another while both parties stab us in the back for their corporate, warmongering owners..
