Doubling Down on Anti-Trump Character Assassins
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)
I'm all for holding Trump accountable for legitimate reasons, not politicized fake ones cooked up by undemocratic Dems and US intelligence community dark forces.
Washington's criminal class is bipartisan, a longstanding conspiracy against world peace, equity and justice — past and present US presidents, the vast majority of congressional members, most judiciary members, and the bureaucracy culpable for what's gone on and continues.
The money controlled US political system is too corrupted to fix. The same goes for the press agent media.
Tinkering around the edges won't change things, voting a waste of time, popular revolution the only solution — sustained people power for radical change. Nothing else can work.
"Power concedes nothing without a demand," former Supreme Court Justice William Douglas explained.
Chicago community organizer Saul Alinsky long ago said the (only) way to beat organized money is with organized people — always bottom up, never top down.
Sustained/committed disruptive activism works. Ordinary people have power when they use it effectively.
The alternative in the US is full-blown tyranny — where things are heading under both extremist wings of the one-party state.
The late Doug Dowd called the US "a sick and dangerous nation run by a handful of the politically powerful." Public apathy lets them get away with mass murder, other human rights abuses, and much more.
On Fox News Sunday, Dem House Intelligence Committee Rep. Val Demings called the impeachment inquiry of Trump "painful…These guys are giddy over this," adding:
What's going on is "terribly divisive for the American people." Allegations of quid pro quo against the president are "just not true," and leaks of partial texts and emails misrepresent quid pro quo.
"This is a great example of just the dishonesty on how this investigation is being run."
"Eventually the transcript will show (accusations are) not true, but by then we'll have already done our damage. It's malicious…to leak like this and to not do it fairly."
A second anti-Trump character assassin surfaced, both unnamed, both masquerading as whistleblowers, both relying on hearsay or dubious information, not firsthand credible facts proving culpability.
Dems claim Trump committed "high crimes and misdemeanors" — indeed so, similar to ones his predecessors and most congressional members were and remain involved in, not phony politicized accusations and allegations no legitimate tribunals would accept.
The second character assassin is also a US intelligence community member, reportedly interviewed by its inspector general Michael Atkinson.
If all he or she's got is corroboration of the first self-styled "whistleblower's claims, it'll amount to much ado about nothing a second time around.
The conversation between Trump and Ukrainian president Zelensky in question is common practice in Washington by virtually all US executives and at least most congressional members.
If considered improper, virtually the entire US political establishment is guilty as charged.
So far, Dems, self-styled "whistleblowers," and their press agent media produced nothing more than smoke and no fire, character assassination for the wrong reasons, ignoring the most important right ones they share guilt over.
Trump abused the power of his office multiple times over — unrelated to accusations against him.
Russiagate witch-hunt House, Senate and Mueller probes laid an egg — the direction Ukrainegate/Schiffgate is heading.
The unredacted transcript of Trump's conversation with Zelensky revealed no smoking guns, no incriminating evidence.
Undemocratic Dems and their go-along media are turning it on its head to claim otherwise — dirty business perhaps to backfire if Trump's campaign uses clear evidence of Biden's blackmail and other underhandedness against him.
