Truest statement of the week

The Democrats, eager members of the war party, are constantly ratcheting up propaganda of their own. Some members of the Congressional Black Caucus have eagerly played their part. Representative Al Green of Texas was the first to make a call for impeachment from the floor of the House of Representatives. If Green can call for Trump’s impeachment he ought to lead the fight against Republican voter suppression. That tactic has deprived thousands of black Americans of the franchise and probably led to Hillary Clinton’s loss in key states. Green and his CBC colleagues don’t think that particular aspect of the Trump victory is worthy of discussion. They have been reduced to party hacks who take direction from their corrupt superiors. They are equally complicit in the Democratic Party’s subterfuge and make a mockery of black voters’ near unanimous support.
In any case, the cry for impeachment is a bait and switch for the Democrats. They would prefer to have Trump to kick around and run against in 2018 and 2020. A hamstrung president is far more useful to them than an establishment figure like Mike Pence. Pence would deflate the shallow so-called resistance movement largely because he isn’t Donald Trump. Democratic wannabe revolutionaries would then go back to sleep without a bogeyman to keep them frightened. Using Trump as a punching bag is the only option that allows them to end their string of electoral failures.
