HALF the people in the USA, if the polls are to be believed, have had their belly full of 🦀 Fascist Trump. That is equivalent to a doom drum roll for Trump and his Wrecking Crew, no matter how many corrupt lackey politicians want to keep him there.

Remember that less than 30% supported the original American Revolution. Trump and his wrecking crew pretend otherwise, but they are sweating bullets 24/7.

That logic cuts both ways. I read "the Tipping point" when it came out as well.

Several weeks of televised hearings failed to move the needle of public opinion a single jot or tittle. And today the House announces its statement that trump did nothing wrong, further lashing themselves to Cult 45. Ensuring the victory of Party over Country.

From his pertain hell, Roger Ailes's rotting hand can ben seen on the throats of the American electorate. Fox News exists to ensure that what happened to Nixon may never happen again.

Dare I say, "Mission Accomplished?"

The Republicans in the House may claim "Trump did nothing wrong", but the majority of the members of the House continue to think otherwise. Only in the Fox News bizarro world is the Impeachement of a 🦀 POTUS by the House of Representatives, though subsequently acquitted by the Senate, "good news" for the political future of said 🦀 POTUS. Fox News can go full Orwell and claim Trump's Impeachment by the House "so polarizes the nation with the unfair Trump witch hunt that people will turn out in droves to give him a second term". That "poor victimized Trump" dog will not hunt, even though it is 😈 par for the psychological projection course in Trumpian politics.

Fox news will, of course, continue to do what they do to normalize Trump's fascist tyranny. The New York times "Ministry of Truth" (See "1984" by George Orwell), CNN, etc. will also play their accustomed roll of pretending to be opposed to Government by, of and for the 1% .

A certain percentage of bought and paid for corporate Democrats, like Obama and Pelosi, will do all they can to keep a serious challenger to Trump's abuse of power rampage from being the Democratic Presidential candidate. The NYT, CNN, ABC, etc. will dutifully report on the Democratic Party hand wringing and pearl clutching about the "danger" of "Socialist policies" to the US economy.

The fascist media may think, because of "statistically insignificant" ;) changes in the impeachment polls, that through 😈 clever perception management mendacity, they enabled the 🎩👹 1% Oligarchs to dodge the consequences of half the electorate being disgusted with Trump and his wrecking crew. If Trump's only impeachable offense was lying to Congress about an affair (e.g. Clinton), I would agree, considering that the highest pro-impeachment numbers Clinton got to was 29% (even without impeachment hearings, 30% of the electorate wanted to impeach Bush and 33% wanted to impeach Obama). But that half of the electorate that wants Trump out shares a lot of reasons for wanting him out with a large percentage of the other half, that still support him out of greedy and/or pseudo-religious convenience. That logic is sound and cuts only one, damaging to Trump's political future, way.

Here's the short list (there are a lot more) of reasons, many of them technically not "impeachable offenses", but still constituting a political death sentence, why FAR greater than half the electorate will not vote to keep Trump in office, or support any Republican that acquits him in the Senate Impeachment Trial:

Headline: Lobbyist helped Ohio legislator on newspaper column opposing "Medicare for All"

Senator Bernie Sanders weighed-in on Twitter, sharing The Washington Post piece:

Our team at Medicare for All NOW! uncovered these examples of industry-crafted talking points under the bylines of state elected officials in an attempt to manipulate the public.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/12/02/state-lawmakers-acknowledge-lobbyists-helped-craft-their-op-eds-attacking-medicare-for-all/

As a former executive at the big for-profit health insurers Humana and Cigna, Wendell Potter knows the greedy health care industry’s decades-old playbook―used previously by Big Tobacco and the NRA―being used now to try and kill Medicare for All.

We’re working to expose the health care industry’s secret efforts to protect their profits!

This reporting was due to Medicare for All NOW! issuing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests of various state lawmakers, confirming what we suspected. They were parroting health care industry talking points because their op-eds were actually written by the for-profit health care industry.

Medicare for All NOW! was founded to fight back against lobbyist efforts to kill health care reform. We’re here to represent the American people, not greedy corporations that put their financial bottom line ahead of our health.

House Democrats have finally c r a c k e d the code against Donald Trump
Bill Palmer | 7:15 pm EST December 4, 2019
Palmer Report » Analysis

Today’s televised House impeachment hearing wasn’t exactly blockbuster in nature. The witnesses consisted of multiple legal experts explaining why Donald Trump’s Ukraine antics were criminal and impeachable in nature, and one Trump apologist who made a fool of himself by misrepresenting what the Constitution says. The hearing wasn’t exactly anything to write home about on its own – but that’s the whole point.

Today’s hearings ensured that the mainstream media headlines for the rest of week will all have some combination of the words “Donald Trump” and “Ukraine” and “scandal” and “impeachment” in them. Just as the previous televised hearings ensured that those same words dominated the headlines during their respective weeks. The thing is, you see, the Democrats have finally c r a c k e d the code – by learning from the Republicans.

If you want a scandal to stick to a politician in the eyes of the nonpartisan general public, the key is repetition. You pick a scandal and you just keep hammering it home, until the average American associates that politician with that scandal. House Republicans did it to Hillary Clinton by hammering email and Benghazi over and over again, until the public was so fixated on these scandals, the media decided to keep running with them, because they were great for ratings. It didn’t matter that they were fake scandals; it just mattered that they were confusing scandals that left the average nonpartisan American with the impression that Hillary must have been doing some shady stuff with regard to email and Benghazi. Nevermind that she ended up being fully exonerated in the end.

House Democrats have chosen a Donald Trump scandal that’s very real, and very criminal, and very impeachable, in the form of his Ukraine extortion plot.


That’s because the Democrats are the good guys, and because their own constituents wouldn’t allow them to run with a fake scandal, and because Trump is such a criminal that no one would ever need to make up a fake scandal about him anyway. But the bottom line is that they picked a scandal that resonates with mainstream Americans, and they’re hammering it over and over and over again.

This isn’t for the sake of the Resistance, who will line up to vote against Donald Trump in 2020 anyway. Nor is this for the sake of Trump’s base, who will line up to vote for him. This for two other groups:

1) Those who somewhat dislike Trump and could either end up voting against him or staying home, and

2) Those who somewhat like Trump and could either end up voting for him or staying home.

These two groups pay the least amount of first-hand attention to politics, and are thus the most swayed by whatever they repeatedly hear second-hand.

There are dozens of major Donald Trump scandals, and some of them are arguably even worse than his Ukraine scandal. But the House Democrats can’t turn those two middle groups against him by simply pushing the generic mantra that “Trump is bad,” or by pushing a laundry list that gets lost in the noise, or by focusing on a scandal that for whatever reason just doesn’t resonate. The way to change the minds that can be changed is to pick a scandal that resonates and just keep pushing it, until it’s the first thing the voters in the middle think of when they think of that politician. House Democrats have finally c r a c k e d the code against Donald Trump. Now they just have to keep hammering away at it.

I'm from Germany - born in the 60ies. I often asked myself since I was a teenager: How was someone like Hitler and the holocaust possible? It is very disturbing to see the similarties between Trump and Hitler, the way, they came to power, the narcism, the people, who support them, the propaganda machine and so on..... From the bottom of my heart I hope that the US are able to stop this nightmare. If not, there will be not so much hope for the rest of the free world and the future of our planet.
