An Ounce of Republican Integrity Left?

Wednesday, January 11, will be a busy day for the US Senate. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (one of the slimiest creatures in the Swamp) has scheduled for that day a slew of budget issues to be voted on, in addition to six confirmation hearings for trump’s cabinet.Such a plan is ridiculous in the extreme and plainly shows that the “hearings” are expected to be nothing more than rubber stamping of trump’s terrible choices.

To add to the circus, trump is promising on that day to hold his first press conference in six months. This is clearly scheduled to distract from the shameful railroading going on in the Senate.

I challenge anyone to argue that there is a single ounce of integrity left in the Republican party. Well, okay, I’ll admit there is one point, that about the Russian hacking. Few Republican leaders are buying trump’s profoundly dishonest attempts to steer attention away from the Russian cyber-agression. Even the Republicans are bothered that trump thinks more highly of Putin than he does the FBI, CIA, NSA, et. al. It looks as if, in addition to his many other very serious flaws, donald trump may prove to be a plain, old-fashioned traitor.

Surely there is no one left in America who fails to see that trump knows only one style, the style of a tyrant.

And surely there is no one left who has not gone back to read again Orwell’s 1984. It is not optional reading in our day. trump and his “surrogates” mirror perfectly and precisely the blatant abuse of truth which Orwell portrays.

  1. Sadly, there are still millions of people who fail to recognize the tyrant who is oozing into power and the looming tyranny that threatens our values and our safety. They’re either oblivious, in denial, or interested only in the personal gains that they anticipate receiving under a trump dictatorship (or kleptocracy, as I’m seeing it described). And there appears to be an alarming number of people who are only interested in preserving the inequality, injustice, and deceit that advance them and oppress those who don’t look and think like them. You could read 1984 aloud to these people every night and they would hear only what supports their small-minded bigotry. It is going to be a long fight and voices like yours will be needed. Thanks for speaking out.

      All of us who see through trump’s thin disguises (of which there are several) need to be speaking out. Many trumpies will be convinced once they realize that they are the ones paying the biggest price Thanks for th encouragement, Donna.
