TODAY'S RANT: The Cancerous Windmills of Your Soon to be Impeached Mind Part II By the Don’s Oily ZeitgeistBy Philip Drucker

I begin with a simple, step by get to stepping hollow-bullet point breakdown of Constitutional analysis:
· If it’s in there, it’s in there, and if it’s corollary is in there, they meant it.
· Impeachment is in the Constitution
· It is the stated remedy for High Crimes and Misdemeanors.
· High Crimes and Misdemeanors includes governmental acts of treason, corruption, including bribery, and abuses of executive power.
· Removal by the election process is not the only way or even the best way to remove a caitiff from the highest office in the executive olive oily branch.
Lately, it would appear we have a disturbing distortion and dereliction of duty on the part of our delegation in the House of Representation. Nancy, if you are listening, it is not your prerogative to impeach or not impeach the leeches among us. The Constitution is not a collection of really good suggestions. It is the highest law of the land in a country dedicated to the rule of law, to which all other laws, as well as all who live beneath their sheltering democratic protection must yield, follow, cherish and honor. It is axiomatic that no one, not even the US President can place himself above the law. If he does, it is all of our constitutional right and duty to have him removed.
The Constitution was designed as a practical document. It is a road map to good governance, a starter-kit for an institution never before attempted on this planet. A political and social crap shoot that could have easily come up snake-eyes. America requires constant vigilance, maintenance and, when necessary, repair. As a democracy, its civil servants must be aware and responsive to the will and the needs of the people.
It’s time to remember when George Washington refused to become America’s first king, saying to his supporters, if he became such a monarch, what exactly did they fight the Revolutionary War for? And so, he refused and became the first true American. It’s time to return to an age of politics where personal character mattered. When the ability of an individual to put the interests of his country above his own self-interests was the single most important trait for a president. In all sincerity, this is, sadly, why we must not hesitate to remove this undisciplined, unfeeling, uncaring and plainly unworthy squatter from the oval office.
The sinister signs of societal sabotage are all around us. Racism, sexism, homophobia, and religious intolerance are rampant. Hate crimes are all on the rise. Our basic value system has been compromised by a demagogue who offers encouragement and cover to those who worship hate.
Wealth inequality is the result of a corrupted economic system infected by greed to benefit the few. We have a President who revels in an economy where 99% of the people suffer on account of being denied one of their fundamental rights, their birthright as indicated in no less an important document than the Declaration of Independence, the Pursuit of Happiness. By action and example, he encourages greed as necessary to the practice of capitalism. His mantra, all for one, one above the law. This cannot stand.
We must reset the Barr of personal and political integrity for future generations. For misdeeds of this magnitude, a price must be exacted and an example made. There can be no accountability without consequences for the no rhyme for orange door hinge fringe nut. The Constitution is clear. Impeach now! It will be a great time to be an American.
Next week, we will leave Washington DC for the streets of San Diego in an effort to find social justice for the homeless and the meaning of the pursuit of happiness.
