The Death of Truth in the Afternoon

Each afternoon during the impeachment trial, I was reminded of the fragility of truth. Forget “General Hospital,” the Impeachment Trial of Donald John Trump, as some of the networks titled it (as if he wasn’t president), was must-see TV almost every afternoon. Each side had …

You Say You’ll Change the Constitution

A good constitution is a foundation that may be added to minimally, but should not be radically altered for expediency, lest our Democratic Republic cease to exist. With the impeachment of the president in full swing, I have never heard so much “love” for the …

Merry Christmas America

Well, it doesn’t look like either party is interested in giving the country any peace and harmony this holiday season. Democrats are impeaching the President regardless of whether it’s good for the country, Republicans are defending the President, regardless of whether it’s good for the …

Happy Holidays Vlad

The initial impeachment hearings have wrapped up, and it seems that Russia is still wreaking havoc in the United States. We have an election coming up with “weak” candidates (and maybe one “Russian asset”), an impeachment in progress for a “corrupt” president, a significant portion …

Never Give an Inch: The Impeachment Conundrum

When you have one group of clowns trying to impeach another clown, it is really no surprise that the public is split on the impeachment question. The President of the United States may have abused his power and may have attempted a shakedown of a …

Another Fine Mess

In a shocking turn of events President Trump is still acting like President Trump.

For those familiar with the Bachelor reality television series, there is a running claim that host Chris Harrison makes every season. At some point, you can count on him stating that “the current season is the most dramatic and shocking season ever.” He doesn’t even say it with a straight face anymore since everyone knows it’s just something that he always claims, true or not. That’s how the Ukraine “fast-moving” (could be a drinking game every time the press uses that term, scratch that, we don’t condone binge drinking) impeachment story feels.

Don’t get me wrong, this is a serious matter. But please don’t be dismayed if the public yawns a bit at the hyper coverage of the press and the deafening proclamations of the politicians. We have heard this all before, just about every day in fact, since Trump got elected.

The press (excluding Fox News) openly hates the president and maybe with good reason, but it is not their job to openly hate a president. It is their job to play a neutral arbiter of the facts, something for which they seem to have trouble doing. It makes it harder to be on continual “fact check” mode with Trump, and be believed when you have to “amend” too many stories. That gives your enemy (President Trump), an opening to lie even more because he can somewhat rightly claim to his minions that the press cannot be trusted.

At hand is a phone call the president made to the leader of Ukraine asking for help in investigating Biden for wrongdoing. Let me be clear that this is not a good thing, but am I the least bit shocked that this call took place? No. Are the Democrats and the press really asking me to believe that Trump is the first and only President to engage in such underhanded activities? Really?

It would also be easier to buy in to the impeachment inquiries if they were not led by politicians as equally unlikable and idiotic as the President. It’s like an absurdist comedy turned tragedy, as our way of governing is melting down before our eyes, and the press is standing by, gleefully throwing gasoline onto the burning heap of our Republic.

People will say we have to get to the truth of the matter, but the fact is that truth only exists now in the prism of two equally corrupt sides of the political spin machine. The press, unfortunately, has concluded that there are no profits to be made in honest reporting, and so the death spiral continues.

Maybe getting rid of Trump by impeachment is the right thing to do. We can then get back to the way things used to be, where the political natural order can be restored. A place where corruption, lying and stealing can once again be kept more private, within the ruling class. Then we can also pretend that none of the things Trump did ever happened before he came along.
