I meet several professors from UT Tyler at a local brewhouse on Tuesday afternoons for a couple of premium brews and 2 of them are in Political Science. NOW this is just their OPINION, but one feels like we could be looking at the END of our democracy. VERY Provocative ! NOT joking - read on !
HOW? If Trump is successful in appointing the next SCOTUS Justice, then DT can escape any treasonous acts like Collusion, Obstruction, LYING,... how? well Mueller subpoenas him to testify and he refuses... goes to the TRUMP SCOTUS and they say 5-4 "NO he doesn't have to appear." Congress as it is, won't over rule them... In fact , SCOTUS says that you can't even prosecute him while he in office (Cavanough believes that- it's a distraction that compromises our Natl security)... Congress won't buck them !!
We go to 2020 election, Trump loses but claims its a fraud !! Trump's SCOTUS 5-4 agrees!! He refuses to leave... SCOTUS backs him ! So does the GOP Congress !! IN the mean time, the Trump SCOUTS overturns or seriously weakens Roe V Wade, voting rights, environmental regs, healthcare mandates, labor laws ... they can overturn ANYTHING the Alt-RIGHT and Koch Bros want. (They've already gave us POTUS GW Bush, weak campaign laws, rules in favor of NRA, and several others and that was when it was somewhat balanced !!)
THE ONLY thing that stops this is a totally controlled D Congress, BOTH Houses... D House only, might Impeach, but "Trump GOP Senate" will NOT convict !!
The main reason The Pol. Sci. Prof feels this way is he feels the GOP is beyond Shame... they don't care any more- they've made the deal with the devil !! ... Trump et al are POWER hungry "Damn the torpedoes... full speed ahead" and Congress refuses to do it's Constitutional job. WHO or WHAT is going to STOP them? Congress - we KNOW and have seen that answer !! The SCOTUS ? Not with it stacked !! NO ONE left !!
Can't say I agree 100%, BUT I can't say that's not possible either. Regardless it WILL BE a CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS !!!
WE better hope that something monumental happens in NOV... "no change" will likely lead to our democracy's death ! (or " on life support" for many years)
Someone the other day said that Kavanaugh LIED to the Senate during his confirmation about a case he ruled on and he said he never did... several months later it was considered to prosecute him but that was never followed through. The Dems overlooked it... it was only for a Circuit Judge !!
I'm now seeing that the Dem Leadership has been WAY, WAY too complacent and playing T-ball for the last 40 years, when the GOP has been playing Major League Baseball. They LET too, too many things slide, including the Impeachment of Reagan for Iran Contra and GW for Iraq. They both committed crimes and walked !!... and they whine about Bill "lying under oath" about a consensual affair and Hillary's emails !? jay-walking !
I'm just saying be like Mueller... when someone breaks the law, NAIL them no matter what (give NO quarter)... don't be nice... be accurate and predictable AND consistent. DO the same for your OWN kind, as you do the others. (With the GOP - it'll be 1 Dem for about every 10 of them)
SPEAK the Whole Truth and DON'T hyperbolize. People get tired of the exaggerations that later are found to be less... or major or many exceptions are discovered.
That's NOT playing in the mud. That's being smart ! It's NOT being a CHUMP... and being played like a fiddle. Aka Trump and KJ Un.
