LUMPENPROLETARIAT[Wednesday, 10 FEB 2021, 07:52 PST]  Today, is the 22nd day of Biden’s first 100 days in office.   And today is also the second day of the public hearing for the second impeachment trial of former U.S. president Donald J. Trump.  The Senators are adjourned until noon today.  As Marjorie Cohn (TruthOut) has argued, “The legal evidence is damning: Donald Trump should be held criminally liable for “seditious conspiracy” and “inciting insurrection” for his role in stoking the events of January 6, when an angry mob of Trump loyalists, incited by the president himself, stormed the Capitol building to stop the congressional counting of votes for Joe Biden in the Electoral College.”  But Mr. Trump is not facing criminal charges, yet.  This impeachment process to vote for a conviction is mainly to disqualify Mr. Trump from holding office in the future, which is evidently now his life’s mission.

But the American people are being gaslit by the Democrats and the Republicans.  The Senate spent most of the day yesterday debating whether or not it is even Constitutional to proceed with the impeachment because Trump is no longer president.  The absurd argument crumbled.  The blame for this “rot and stink”, as one legal expert described the current state of D.C. politics, this shameful Senatorial farce, is the fact that we have fake politics in the U.S.  It’s political theater because we have a two-party political cartel, where both parties deny the will of the people.  Another bullshit argument we heard yesterday argued that impeachment was moot, since the remedy through impeachment is removal from office and, Mr. Trump’s defense argued, Mr. Trump is no longer in office.  This was a complete farce because the point of impeachment is disqualification from holding future office positions.

So, Republican gaslighting continues post-Trump, as pro-Trump speakers continued to lie yesterday in their testimonials.  Aren’t participants in a trial such as this bound by an oath to tell the truth as in a court of law or else face perjury charges?  Well, we were reminded by one legal expert on Pacifica Radio’s Up Front this morning, this is not a legal trial.

Nevertheless, Mr. Trump lawyered up, including hiring one Mr. Schoen, a lawyer, who has boasted about representing mobsters.  Taking advice from his legal team, Mr. Trump, like an unprincipled coward, did not show up to defend himself for his role in instigating and fueling mob violence on the Capitol on January 6th with the clear goal of undermining the electoral count by manipulating his followers into believing Mr. Trump had been cheated out of a fair election.

The Republicans have unscrupulously defended Mr. Trump on spurious grounds, such as the absurd notion that he cannot be impeached because he’s no longer president, which is false.  Legal precedent exists.  And, if it didn’t, it should now because Mr. Trump presented a clear and present danger to our republic for which he must be held accountable, and for which he must be disqualified from holding future office.  The Republicans will never acknowledge that because they still want to use his brand and popularity, despite his toxicity, racism, and divisiveness to U.S. politics.

As corroborated this morning on Pacifica Radio’s Up Front, this is not a legal trial.  But it is, nevertheless, very important, symbolically, as well as to preserve democracy by preventing Mr. Trump’s dictatorial aspirations.

We know the Democrat Party colludes with the Republican Party to block alternative political parties from the presidential debates and from ballot access in many states across the nation with top-two primary laws and whatnot.  So, why should we not expect the Democrat Party to collude with the Republican Party on this Trumpian political theater?  Delusion is the only reason we can fathom.

Mr. Trump is not persona non grata in the Republican Party, despite his crimes and toxicity.  In fact, his stock just went up.  Tom Hartmann was speculating this morning, given all the PACs and donors and crowd-funding, Mr. Trump may be sitting on a half a billion dollars of potential campaign funds.  The persona non grata in the GOP at the moment is congresswoman Marjorie Greene, who seems to have been scapegoated to deflect attention away from Mr. Trump.  In fact, Mr. Trump on the other hand is still being pampered by the Republican Party.  A couple of weeks ago, “Donald Trump, in a meeting with House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy on Thursday [28 JAN 2021], agreed to help the GOP retake control of the House in 2022.”  Since the Republicans are already scheming to bring the aspiring dictator back onto the world stage of politics, they must already be confident about chances for an acquittal, for escaping a conviction, which could disqualify him from holding office in future.

The RNC is planning to invite Trump to its spring donor meeting in Florida in April, Politico reported, citing an unnamed source.

Trump has said he plans to be active endorsing candidates and opposing those he considers disloyal, particularly Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, whom Trump blames for not helping him overturn the Nov. 3 election results in that state.

Tampa Bay Times, 28 JAN 2021

We do not have confidence that the Democrat Party is sincere, or capable, of convicting Mr. Trump.  Their argumentation was insincere and flawed from the outset.  We hope to elaborate on these points as time constraints allow.  But, suffice it to say, earlier more sincere articles of impeachment had been introduced in earlier years against Mr. Trump, but were ignored.  Then, after the 9/11-like events of January 6th, after massive public outcry, the craven Democrats introduced only one, single article of impeachment!  That told us from the outset that the Democrats were not sincere about pursuing a meaningful conviction.

Fight” by The Cure, 1987.

If Mr. Trump is convicted, he will be disqualified from holding future office.  But all of the red flags are pointing to insufficient votes for an impeachment conviction.  Mr. Trump will walk away from this untarnished.  He will return to his divisive demagoguery this spring.  And Americans, who dream of true democracy, will be knocked back on their heels in the absence of a sincere and authentic left-wing opposition to American right-wing toxicity.  We hope we are wrong because Mr. Trump could mean real Hitlerian fascism, if he is enabled to grow his brand, politically speaking. Solidarity.

Trump said to his people, I hope Pence has the courage to do what he has to do, ie, overturn the electoral process on behalf of Trump.  As Pence didn’t do that, the lynch mob mentality types saw it as their duty and privilege to engage in lynch mob behavior. But this granular level of detail dramatically exposes Mr. Trump’s guilt. The ones, who are definitely escaping accountability are the Republican Party and the Democrat Party for their role in creating the conditions, which made Trump possible, the polarizing nature of a two-party system, which the Republican-Democrat political cartel alwaya guarantee will exist.

He did claim that she wanted to talk about “Bill Cassady(sp?)” at the outset. But we’re sure she would also have been more than happy to elaborate on that “stink and rot” she alluded to.  We suspect some of that analysis would expose stink and rot in the Democrat Party. We suspect BET did too, hence the topic pivot to the Republican Party, a straw man.  We already know about the Republican Party.

I would expect that he would sit in prison for many, many years, as I hope Trump does. Also, what about the cop, who killed himself?’  Jeserich doesn’t know what happened to the suicide cop; but speculated in such a manner so as to deflect from the inside job reality. […]  15:15 PST, Jeserich mentioned the secretary of defenses signing on to a letter calling on the military to stand down. […]  15:18 PST, caller Kristina(sp?) said ‘we are not standing  up to this like we should, that we are marching into the slaughter, like sheep.  As usual, Mitch Jeserich could not empathize with the woman, nor engage with her—what an asshole.  He, literally, just hung up on her, as she was distraught.  He didn’t try to comfort her.  But, worst of all, was Jeserich’s ideological censorship of her concerns.  The next caller (15:21 PST), was a calm-voice white-sounding guy, ‘Steven’. Since his call wasn’t very critical of the overall “stink and rot”, as one expert said this morning, then Jeserich let the man hold forth at length. And Jeserich was happy to engage with the trivialities of rules and legalities. 15:23 PST, after some rambling, now Jeserich moves on to “Janet”.  15:24, “Janet” begins asking if Trump has conceded or not, yet. 1526, after several interruptions, Jeserich finally let Janet continue with her remarks. We notice how Jeserich didn’t really do this when ‘Steven’ called just before ‘Janet’.  15:27, ‘Janet’ seems to be struggling to articulate her thesis.’I wonder how people in other parts of the country” […]  Her pont seemed unclear, Mitch seemed uninterested. […] 15:29 PST, back to audio of the impeachment trial. Raskin, introduction.

15:30 PST, KPFA > ongoing live coverage.  Up next:  David Cicilline, Democrat from Rhode Island. […] 15:40 PST, Cicilline claimed that “even Trump’s own family” tried to persuade Trump to call off the rioters.  Even Ivanka and Kirchner, claimed Cicilline.  This sounds unreliable.  […]  Yesterday, senators, including Raskin, said that his allies will show that “Trump was singularly responsible” for the events of January 6th.   This tells us Democrats have no intention of telling the complete story, including the roles of Senators Ted Cruz; Holly, and Marjorie Greene, also the role of the GOP, who is still courting him. > 15:53 PST, NEXT: Senator Castro. [Station I.D.] 16:01 PST, Castro (continued) […] ALSO MISSING FROM THE EVIDENCE PRESENTED IS EVIDENCE FROM GREG PALAST, et al, ON VOTER SUPPRESSION. […] 16:30 PST, end of testimony by Joaquin Castro.

16:30 PST, KPFA > Senator Mike Leigh (Republican), the hot-headed-sounding blowhard, ‘objecting to how his name is being used in the trial.  Senator Patrick Leahy is over-ruling. […] ‘Justice (?)’ […] 16:31 PST, live audio feed of deliberation over the objection. […] 1633, Leigh spazzes out again. “They are not true. I never made those statements.”

Kpfa 1654, caller pointed out ‘who is interrogating this? I haven’t heard anybody talk about this.’  We missed the previous 25 or so minutes. It sounds like the caller was asking about the inside job factor because Mitch Jeserich sheepishly acknowledged that ‘security was a bit lax’, although he may have been referring to back when he used to visit Capitol Hill. 16:57 PST, PBS News Hour video feed ended already; so, we assume the proceedings have been adjourned until tomorrow.
