America’s new year’s resolution: impeach Trump and remove him

The shutdown, attacks on the judiciary, the politicization of the military. All confirm it: Congress must impeach. Now

But he's smart, he tells us all the time

After his first bizarre year, Donald Trump’s apologists told us he was growing into the job and that in his second year he would be more restrained and respectful of democratic institutions.

Wrong. He’s been worse.

Exhibit one: the “wall”. After torpedoing Mitch McConnell’s temporary spending deal to avert a shutdown, he’s holding hostage more than 800,000 government employees (“mostly Democrats”, he calls them, disparagingly) while subjecting the rest of America to untoward dangers.

On-site inspections at power plants have been halted. Hazardous waste cleanup efforts at Superfund sites are on hold. Reviews of toxic substances and pesticides have been stopped. Justice department cases are in limbo.

Meanwhile, now working without pay are thousands of air traffic controllers and aviation and railroad safety inspectors, nearly 54,000 Customs and Border Protection agents, 42,000 coast guard employees, 53,000 TSA agents, 17,000 correctional officers, 14,000 FBI agents, 4,000 Drug Enforcement Administration agents, and some 5,000 firefighters with the US Forest Service.

Having run the Department of Labor during the 1995 and 1996 shutdowns, I’m confident most of these public servants will continue to report for duty because they care about the missions they’re upholding. But going without pay will strain their family budgets to the point that some will not be able to.

  1. I second this comment. The rules for removing a president are far too slow and difficult. Let’s return to putting a president under the same rules as an ordinary citizen and stop treating him like royalty. The president should not have the power to shut down the government. This is an outrage. Watch this great video in 2016 at LAX by a former Marine:

    Let’s stop the whores in Congress and the gangsters in Israel from gang raping us out of our Constitutional rights.
