Executive Order White House Cancel Culture

Executive order, cancel culture

Legislation is out and executive orders are in. For example, “Pen and a Phone” President Obama signed 19 executive orders in his first 12 days. But “Human Wrecking Ball” Donald Trump canceled Obama with 18 in his first dozen days. And now a very “Un Sleepy” Joe Biden has already signed two dozen Trump crushing orders.

Senate Trial of a Former President

Senate trial, former president trial

Mitch McConnell is ok with a Senate trial for Former President Trump. On Monday the House delivered to the Senate one article of impeachment for incitement of insurrection. Or “erection” if you’re Chuck Schumer.

So, the Senate trial of Donald Trump is on. Again. But this time Trump isn’t the president. And the purpose of a Senate trial is to remove the president. At least that’s what my copy of the constitution says. It also says that when the President is tried, the Chief Justice presides. But the presiding geezer looks suspiciously like Pat Leahy. Maybe that’s because the president isn’t being tried. I’m no constitutional scholar, I just shoot the wounded. But, as Former President Trump likes to say, we’ll see.

Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the The United States: But the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.

Trump Dumped on His Way out the Door

dump trump, lame duck impeached

The U.S. House of Representatives voted to dump Trump on his way out the door. Ten Republicans joined all the Democrats in a 232 – 197 vote to impeach the president for “inciting insurrection.”

Trump will Leave White House One Way or Another

Trump will leave, impeachment, resign

President Trump will leave the White House within 7 days one way or another. Passions run high about his remaining options.

The WSJ editorial page wants him to resign. Nancy Pelosi demanded that Mike Pence invoke the 25th amendment. But Pence said no – the same answer he gave when Trump pressured him to overturn the election. Now Pelosi wants a second Trump impeachment.

A Monday Quinnipiac survey found that 89% of Democrats want Trump frogmarched now. But 87% of Republicans are opposed. And 73% of Republican still believe there was “widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election.”

If a big chunk of the population thinks the election was illegitimate what will they think of impeachment?

But if he’s not impeached does that mean loser presidents get a free pass from election day to inauguration day?

Big Tech Lends a Tentacle to Progressives

Big Tech is putting the squeeze on free speech. And it’s being embraced by progressives, as long as someone else’s speech gets the squeeze. Early progressive’s battled trust octopi. But no more.

In the 19th century, “progressives” sought to curb the power of monopolies and trusts on the logic that the proverbial people had only the railroads or telegraphs to travel or communicate, and should be freed from their octopus “tentacles.” The railroad argument, “Ride a horse if you don’t like us,” never washed.

Now progressives enlist social media monopolies to ensure that they alone can control, censor, and cancel incorrect communications over the publicly owned airspace. “Just email or use your cell phone, if you don’t like us” won’t wash either. Progressives are no longer the watchdogs breaking up trusts. They are the trusts breaking up watchdogs.
