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.

Punk Politics Impeachment Edition

So Trump has been impeached and there’s quite the range of emotions going around. Let’s break it on down. The Democrats “yay he’s gone!” He has been impeached which makes him eligible for a Senate trial. He’s still president and still eligible to run.

The Republicans “He’s not impeached… snowflakes.” Actually he is impeached, see my above explanation to the Democrats. Republicans again “He shouldn’t be impeached!” In a way you’re right as this bag of smashed assholes shouldn’t have even been able to be the nominee for a myriad of reasons.

Leftists “Ain’t nothin gonna happen.” You’re probably right actually for so many reasons.

Anarchists “we agree with the leftists” and that’s the camp I’m in. This dystopian hellscape will continue because much of the populace is too in love with their major parties and colonial mindset to have any real change beyon what tyrant we have each 4 years.

Let’s talk about Turkey and genocide, ya know the 2 things that make up Thanksgiving. What you may have missed during the impeachment noise. Lindsey Graham on behalf of America stated that America is not recognizing the Armenian genocide. Wait, what the fuck? You heard right. So after we have cleared the way for Turkey to commit a Kurdish genocide; Erdogan’s goon squad beat down American citizens on our own fucking soil 18 months ago for protesting his visit and Trump calls him a “very good friend” they get a pass on their previous genocide. Honesty I’m not the least bit surprised. It’s not like America has owned up to the indigenous genocide. Well that “good friend” has been invited back to the white house for a press conference in which he showed a “surreal” propaganda video painting the Kurds as terrorists. Also Erdogan said that he is keeping the S400 missile system whoch will likely be deployed against the Kurds. I’m guessing that after all this the 2 leaders went to make out and compare genocides and systematic racism.
