2021-02-13 Trump’s 2nd Impeachment, 2nd Acquittal

A friend asked me what I thought about the results of the second impeachment. I had seen the newsmedia that said that they had talked to some of the Republicans and there was a consensus that there would not be the two-thirds of the votes needed to convict Trump. So when the final votes were taken there were no surprises — the Senators had only 7 Republicans who had voted to convict. The Senate still needed ten more to convict. All fifty Democratic senators voted to convict.

After seeing what Trump did on January 6th, I think that Trump should have been convicted. That’s why the House of Representatives voted to impeach him.

The newsmedia talked about how afraid the Republicans were of losing the next election if they had voted for conviction. They think that Trump will spend the $millions of campaign donations he has received on defeating any Republican who voted to convict him. There were seven Republican senators who voted for conviction, so we will have to wait until their terms expire to see if they have to fight Trump to get reelected.

All of the fifty Democratic senators voted to convict Trump. I think that the Democrats should use the same tactic on the 47 Republican senators who voted against conviction. The Democrats should make a PAC (political action committee) that raises money. The PAC’s mission is to defeat all the Senators who voted to acquit Trump. Notice I did *not* say Republicans or any party. They are not after any senator; they are going after Trump. It has been said that we “Fight fire with fire.” In this case, fear is what we’re fighting. The ‘trumpist’ senators will have to fear both Trump and the “Trump Not PAC”. Or “No Trump PAC” Or “Anti-Trump PAC” Whichever name it will be called.

The first senator the PAC will go after is Mitch McConnell. McConnell said, “There is no question — none — that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the [January 6th attempted coup]. No question about it.” See this YouTube video. Then why didn’t he vote to convict? A technicality that Trump was no longer in office. That’s a bogus technicality. McConnell said, “Trump is still responsible for everything he did while he was in office.” Well, then WHY didn’t he vote for conviction? He’s a two-faced hypocrite.

There are a few other prominent and outspoken senators who should be made examples of. Fear is a forceful instinct. From the past poor performance of Congress — on both sides of the aisle — the voters haven’t spoken loud enough with their votes; the people have to speak louder with their money.

Update Feb 14 –

From a CBSN video on YouTube



“It is a sad commentary on our times that one political party in America is given a free pass to denigrate the rule of law, defame law enforcement, cheer mobs, excuse rioters, and transform justice into a tool of political vengeance, and persecute, blacklist, cancel and suppress all people and viewpoints with whom or which they disagree.” >>

CBS is saying that thousands of Republicans have left the Party in the weeks since the attempted coup on the Capitol. More than 33,000 in California, alone.


I read this book How The Right Lost Its Mind and now I see there is an interview with the same title, of the author on YouTube. It’s long, an hour and 8 minutes.
