An Agonizing Wait

The wait is killing me slowly. Like, the five day wait for the end of the twice impeached one termer’s first and only term is just too much to handle. The end is so close, yet so far away. So desperately far away. Cheeto can do so much damage in five days.

Biden gave a speech about Covid-19 plans today and it reminded me of what it used to be like when we had a president who was presidential and not a vindictive, petty, buffoon, toddler man. Remember? Remember what it was like to have a real human being as president and not a spray tanned cheeto with a blob of steel wool stapled to his head?

Five days. January 16, 17, 18, 19, and then the day it happens, January 20th. It’s going to feel so good to have a grown up in charge again.

Twice

Barak Obama is better than Donald Trump in every measurable way except one. He was a better President, he is a better person, he has a Nobel Prize, he’s probably better at golf and every other sport, he’s never been divorced, he’s never paid to fuck a porn star (that we know of). There are so many things at which Barak Obama is superior to Donald Trump.

The one exception? Getting impeached. Donald Trump has been impeached while Barak Obama, in double the amount of time, was never impeached.

Now, as of this afternoon, Donald Trump has once again shown how much better he is at getting impeached than Barak Obama by getting impeached an unprecedented second time. Only three US Presidents have ever been impeached, Johnson, Clinton, and Trump. Nixon was about to be impeached but he resigned in order to avoid the shame (and the criminal charges, thanks to Gerald Ford). Trump has now been impeached twice. The first president in US history to be impeached twice.

Word is that speaker Pelosi will be sending the articles of impeachment over to the Senate right away. The Senate will then do the same thing they did last time and make a mockery out of the process which by extension makes a mockery out of the checks and balances setup by the Constitution. The Senate is currently on recess until the 19th, which is the last full day of the twice impeached trump’s one and only term. He could call for the Senate to reconvene early, but why would he want to do that? It’s not like the twice impeached trump launched a violent assault on the Capitol or anything, right?

Congratulations to the twice impeached fascist in chief who has once again proven that he is infinitely better at getting impeached than his presidential predecessor, Barak Obama, ever was.

In case you missed the point here, donald trump has been impeached. Again. Unlike last time, 10 republican representatives crossed the aisle to vote in favor. Last time the only republican to vote in favor was senator Romney. This time we will need 17 senators (I think) to vote in favor and that’s a tall order. It looks like the trial won’t happen until after trump leaves office though. At that point the Democrats will have the majority in the Senate but that alone won’t be enough.

The only question left is, how much damage can the fascist in chief do in the final seven days of his term?

I Can’t Take It

I’ve had the House debate on impeachment running for about 15 minutes and I am so mad I can’t believe it. I literally just heard a republican say that when the nazi fascist incited the riot he didn’t mean it. The rioters weren’t supposed to take him seriously.

Republican after republican saying he didn’t do anything wrong when he kicked off an armed attack on the Capitol building which killed five people. I honestly cannot take it anymore. The apologists are utterly infuriating. It’s unforgivable. The collaborators need to be removed from Congress.

Happy Impeachment Day

I still want to come up with a word to use for a second impeachment. Repeach is my first attempt and it’s the best I’ve come up with so far (I searched for it on twitter and as with all creative things I attempt it was not original) but I’m really not feeling it. I also thought to treat it as a movie title and called it Impeachment II: The Repeachening. That’s better, but it’s… kinda… long.

The plan as we know it is to hold the vote to impeach the fascist terrorist cheeto today. I don’t know when. I don’t know how much debate there will be. I’m sure there will be some, but the evidence in this case is so obvious how much debate will they need? I mean, every one of them was there when it happened, and the instigation happened on television. How much more discussion do you need?

I read last night that the first draft of the articles of impeachment was actually written by three Congressmen as they were hiding in someone’s office during the attack. Removing that scum bag from office would be a tiny bit of poetic justice in this case.

Let’s have the vote right now. Remove him and throw his terrorist ass in jail. Done and done.

Still Waiting

I haven’t heard anything from the House of Representatives today. The expectation was they were going to be debating something about the 25th Amendment. Can the Congress force Pence’s cowardly hand? I don’t know. They can vote on whether or not to impeach the terrorist in chief, but it sounded like they were waiting until tomorrow for that.

Why are they waiting? Every minute cheeto remains in power is one minute closer to a catastrophe. Remove the fascist terrorist now. Get him out of there. Stop putzing around and DO SOMETHING. He orchestrated an armed assault on the US Capitol building. He needs to be in jail and he needs to be there six fucking days ago.

It’s so freakin’ frustrating. It’s like the entire Congress wasn’t paying attention when the mob stormed their chambers. What the ever loving fuck?

I can’t even distract myself with hockey yet. The NHL opens up tomorrow and the Bruins open up on Thursday. I thought we would have a new, temporary president by then, but nope. Terrorists are only punished when they pray to the wrong version of god. That’s the precedent the US Federal government is setting right now. Nice job, folks. Let the evil run free. Good work.

On the up side, I coded a custom utility today. I usually let my staff handle tasks like that, but it’s been so long since I’ve done it I felt the need to make sure I still know how. I do. At least until it gets to peer review and the reviewer skewers it. That’s gonna happen. Until then, good boy, robbie.

Now REMOVE THE GOD DAMNED TERRORIST. Pretty please.

Dream Come True or Hack

About an hour ago the State Department website’s presidential biography page for Cheeto McClownshoes was updated saying his term ended on January 11, 2021 at 19:49. Assuming that is Eastern Time and not UTC, it means that his term ended at 7:49 PM… five hours after the page was updated.

Check out that screen shot from one of the many twitter posts I saw that reported the page.

Unfortunately, that page is now down with the message, “We’re sorry, this site is currently experiencing technical difficulties. Please try again in a few moments.”

So what does it mean? There are three possible things that I can think of.

  • The site was hacked and someone with a bad sense of humor decided to get us all excited just to watch our hearts break when Cheeto fails to resign.
  • Someone on the State Department’s IT staff has had enough and just did it as a big giant fuck you to society.
  • Cheeto McClownface is going to resign tonight and it leaked.

I’m betting it’s the first scenario. Some jerk is trying to get our hopes up only to see them dashed in a few hours.

ADDENDUM: Apparently it was scenario #2.

Car Music Tomorrow

I promised myself I’d do some singing in the car this morning before the cleaning and de-christmasing started.

I didn’t.

Now I am promising myself I’ll do some singing in the car before the cleaning re-commences in the morning. You heard it here first and unlike the terrorist who attacked the US Capital this week and now today are blaming it on antifa, including the clowns saying they just followed antifa into the building so they could use the bathroom, I am not taking fantasies out of my ass.

The fact that cheeto McClownshoes hasn’t been removed from office yet is insulting beyond words. He instigates a terrorist attack on the federal government and there are no consequences. Osama Bin Laden must be really jealous right now, assuming he gets internet from his grave at the bottom of the sea.

Car music in the morning. 25th amendment in the afternoon. Impeachment on Monday. Do your fucking jobs. Remove the head of the terrorist cult from power. Now.

Also, antifa is not an organization. I know this for a fact. How do I know this for a fact? I know this for a fact because if antifa were an actual organization I would be a member. Q.E.Fucking.D.

Whack a Mole

So yeah, anyone seen anything good on Twitter lately?

Last night was insane. Twitter finally (FINALLY) banned trump after years of easily verifiable lies, inciting violence, and (probably most important from Twitter’s point of view) violating the terms of service. It was glorious. Millions of American voices cried out in bliss all at once.

My first thought (did I write it here or somewhere else?) was, how long until bunkerbitch realizes he can still tweet from @potus? Well, not very long. He sent a tweet from that account and Twitter immediately removed it. It was almost like they expected it. How ’bout that?

When he realized he had been thwarted a second time he went to one of his campaign accounts and tried to tweet from there. Once again, immediately banned. Then he tried to tweet from a staff member’s account and that was banned too. Today I read (but did not confirm) that Don Jr’s account has been banned. Did daddy cheeto try to tweet from there?

The part of this that amazes me the most, outside of all of the maga cult people saying his first amendment rights are being violated when anyone who has ever paid attention in a Junior High School civics class knows that they are not, is that he has an entire core of press assigned to cover the white house 24 hours a day. If he wanted to get word out to his cult all he needed to do was walk down the fucking hall and have a press conference. I mean, it is literally part of his job! Nope, it has to be Twitter because his ego is completely wrapped up in the number of followers he had on his account. He’s a child. A whiny, bratty, little three year old child.

Oh, and for the record I currently have 711 followers on Twitter. That’s 711 more than trumpy the nazi clown. @RobJ_ is totes winning this race.
