Punk Politics #18

This impeachment is bull shit and likely nothing further will come of it. So the Senate called Pelosi out for sitting on the articles and is making varying threats to stop it from proceeding. And now the zombie witch crawls out of her cave, likely strewn with the corpses of child laborers (thanks NAFTA) to screech “we are ready”. Meanwhile the Republicans are doing everything they can to not call witnesses. It’s a little hard to have a criminal proceeding with no fuckin witnesses. If Trump ain’t do shit wrong, then why wouldn’t you want witnesses? Trump isn’t fit to be president and should be tossed out but this shit show is a circus from the neo-liberals and a drama with the neo-cons. Neither of them give a fuck about us beyond which flag the ruling party marches under. This will likely hrlp Trump as it makes him look like a martyr to his supporters. Maybe that’s the plan.

A theory on Trump

A theory on Trump’s remarks on immigration. It’s a dog whistle to certain groups. Identity Evropa (white nationalist group behind the tiki torch Nazis) has been distancing themselves from the alt-right and therefore Trump. Which means that likely other white hate groups are doing the same. In other words Trump’s base is jumping ship. So he likely said something this radically offensive knowing full well it would be published and shared as a way of saying “hey guys, I hate like you”. It’s also an adept bit of misdirection as a lot of us missed the expansion of FISA (the warrantless wiretapping and data mining started under the Obama administration) which Trump denounced and then supported in strong man style in a span of 2 hours.
