    • Week-end Wrap – Political Economy – April 20, 2019
      This post is by Tony Wikrent I have been looking at the work of Cornell University law professor Robert Hockett, who is serving as an economics adviser to Representative Alexandria Occasio-Cortez. I have been delighted to find that Hockett has been working the same angle I have: applying the classical republicanism that informed the creation of […]

And another thing, Nancy

Her impeachment comments brought back all the things I didn’t like about Nancy, including that she handed Obama the nomination in 2008 and didn’t allow Hilary Clinton a full first vote on the floor. Remember that, California? We got “no drama” Obama for 8 years and Obamacare that made working class people choose between health care and the car they needed to get up work.

Ok, ok, ok, I’m getting ahead of myself. I have to slow down. By the way, what does it mean when you dream of a bunch of Persian fortune tellers invading your house and sending you off to work in a military style jacket and skirt? Agggghhh. Ok, so off topic.

Anyway, back to Nancy.

What she is essentially saying is that Trump can get away with literally a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g. As long as there are not sufficient votes in the senate, it’s a waste of time to impeach. That’s right, indicting the president is off the table, so saith the justice department, and impeachment is too decisive.

So, Trump is above the law is the only obvious conclusion. We have no mechanisms that would hold him accountable. He can barbecue Mexican toddlers on a stick while group groping a herd of porn stars on the yacht he bought with the money Putin gave him for the launch codes. It would be impolite to bring up impeachment at the next intersectional congressional picnic.

Are you serious, Nancy?? Are you listening to yourself??

We aren’t talking about a stupid blow job where we could see that the Republicans were overreaching. And Bush Cheney were amateurs compared to the Trump crime family.

He’s doing crimes in front of our faces and daring us to do something.

So, do something. No one should be able to break the law with impunity. Especially Trump.

Unless you’re waiting for SDNY or the NYAG to do the heavy lifting, you have an obligation to not send Trump the green light to do more crimes. Impeachment is written into the constitution for a reason.

It’s meant to be used in circumstances just like this.
