SHARE Sunday, December 15, 2019 We've Got the Bastard Now! (No We Haven't.)
As the impeachment process has rolled along, my email has been peppered by delirious notes from my liberal and progressive friends; "We've got the bastard now!" No we haven't. No...we haven't.

A bigger problem looms just over the horizon; mass migration of climate refugees. This surge of climate refugees will dwarf current immigration problems. While today the US and southern Europe face a flood of refugees, most from dysfunctional countries or regional wars, the climate refugee problem will be a tsunami in comparison.

In all of this, Donald J. Trump has undermined the integrity of his office, has brought disrepute on the Presidency, has betrayed his trust as President, and has acted in a manner subversive of the rule of law and justice, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.

We are on the doorstep of a very different America. As non-white immigration surges, racism will become even more virulent and overt. And it's only a matter of time before other far-right tropes become common,.

Liberals and progressives have been basking this week in a false sense of schadenfreude as they revel over the missteps and outright insanity of Trump's convention.
This is a huge mistake

Do you REALLY want to help your party and your country? If so then stop sucking all the (financial/political) oxygen out of the system giving other (genuine) progressives a shot at the White House

Islamic upheaval. They are so far behind the West in social development, so crippled by their fanatic attachment to unreconstructed Islam, so convinced that Sharia law is better for the world than the rule of civil laws the West evolved. How do we, CAN we, deal with, or even co-exist with, such a force?

Remember the movie "Ghostbusters?" Of course you do. Well the other day, while musing about the latest "kinetic action" - as Pentagon brass like to call it - in Iraq and now Syria, I remembered a scene in that movie.

Not since the Vietnam War era has a conflict so divided friend and family as the Israel/Palestinian conflict. The new war on Gaza has only made matters worse. This time there's no question about it... Israel is wrong... dead wrong.

First everyone has to say it right out loud: Gaza, a piece of land disconnected from the future Palestinian state on the West Bank is, and will remain, a incitement to both sides. It is a demonstrably unsustainable fragment, an orphan, that belongs to neither Israel or Palestine. And it's a monumental slum, breeding what slums everywhere on the planet breed; discontent, anger, and endless trouble.

Look anywhere on the globe where Western colonial powers moved into far-off foreign lands, decided to do some interior redecorating while exploiting their resources, then left. What you see, with only the rarest exceptions, is trouble... usually big, bloody trouble.

Progressives, especially those of us who live on one of the two coasts, think we are fighting the same old battles against an annoying, but diminishing, reactionary Right. That's been largely so, until now. Now it's different. And it's different in a very big way.

So I'm watching Jon Stewart the other night grilling House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi , about money in politics. Her responses were an extreme exercise in schizophrenia. In one breath she produced two diametrically opposite positions. By the time she finished the two statements self-canceled, producing nothing but talking-point smoke.

Recently Christian groups demanding Christian monuments on public grounds learned a painful lesson when Satanist groups demanded equal time with their own monument praising their deity, Satan. Now we need to teach that lesson again.
