Support Impeachment Inquiry against Trump. This is a rare political post here at my blog. Ordinarily I confine my political life to my personal life. And, okay, I’ll make some comments on Facebook. (Where all of you are invited to friend me.)
Why am I writing today’s post? Because I feel so strongly that people like us can make a huge difference. So I’ll summarize why it’s so important for us Americans to actively support an Impeachment Inquiry.
Also, I’ll give you some step-by-step instructions on how to do it. Effectively. Super-Fast. And also, if this matters to you, discreetly.
Clearly, I’m aiming this post primarily at Americans. But how about in your country, Blog-Buddies who live outside the U.S.? Are icky political things happening, where you could make a difference? If so, what do you think your fellow citizens could do about it?
Yes, in today’s rare political post, feel free to comment below.
What Is an Impeachment Inquiry?
First of all, let’s get clear on the name. “Supporting an Impeachment Inquiry”… That’s not the same thing as “Voting on Articles of Impeachment.”
Here’s a helpful article for spelling out the differences.
As for those who aren’t willing to begin an Impeachment Inquiry until a majority of Americans want this…
Seems to me, the purpose of the House Representatives is to lead. Not to follow. An Impeachment Inquiry won’t divide the nation further so much as educate the nation.
What Happens during after an Impeachment INQUIRY?
This article beautifully clarifies the steps involved in impeachment.
In the 10-step process of impeaching a U.S. president:
First come Steps 1-3.
Done in the U.S. House of Representatives, these steps involve starting an Impeachment Inquiry. In my view, even that can provide much needed education to the American public. Incidentally, did you know? Step 1 has already begun.
Steps 4-5 involve issuing a Resolution of Impeachment.
Steps 6-8 require the U.S. Senate to start a trial.
Personally, I wonder why we don’t hear much discussion right now concerning this part. Folks assume that the Senate wouldn’t vote to impeach. After going through Steps 9-10, that seems pretty likely.
But let’s not expect House Speaker McConnell to honor that obligation to start an impeachment. Which would mean, in effect, a public trial. Maybe you remember how McConnell stalled for the rest of President Obama’s term. Not allowing voting on Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland.
Seems to me, whatever happens during Steps 1-3
It will prove informative for the voting public.
- Facts on the record.
- Evidence on the record.
- Video footage on the record.
- And the voting public can then become better informed.
Why Support an Impeachment Inquiry against Trump?
I view this as a way to vividly televise Mr. Trump’s obstruction of justice. And his other high crimes and misdemeanors.
After all, how many people do you know who’ve read The Mueller Report?
I haven’t. Although I follow the news through newspapers of record. Sometimes supplementing that with watching news reports from trusted media.
All that counts as reading. By contrast, news media will broadcast details of an Impeachment Inquiry. And maybe Impeachment Proceedings. By performing this constitutional duty, the House can set in motion… what? Clear, dramatic accounts of what Trump has done.
Let’s face it. Most people would rather see the movie of just about anything. See the movie, rather than read the book. If you support an Impeachment Inquiry, you’re helping to make that movie happen.
Were You Depending on Mueller’s Testimony Before You’d Openly Support an Impeachment Inquiry, or Impeachment Proceedings?
How did that work out for you?
In this section of today’s post, I’ll give you my perspective on Mueller’s disappointing performance. This is where my background with energetic literacy gives me a perspective on today’s political struggles. A perspective you won’t find elsewhere.
Please note. I’m no conspiracy theorist. You can find thousands of blog posts here… and over 51,000 comments from Blog-Buddies. A relatively small number of them concern what I’m about to share with you here.
In reality, what has Mueller done, ever since releasing his Report? Allowing Barr’s lies to go unquestioned. Delaying so long before responding effectively. Mumbling during his recent testimony before Congress. And still not having responded effectively, or helped in any meaningful way. (Unless you’re an attorney or a very advanced policy wonk. Allowing you to find a few useful points, technically.)
So many people — and pundits — have been baffled. But Not Me
You see, I read auras in detail through regular photographs. That reveals what’s really going on within a person.
For years, I couldn’t tell how he was handling the pressure of his job. Because no photos of Mueller went public during the years of his investigation as Special Counsel. But after the Mueller Report went public, finally there was a photo. Soon as possible I researched his aura and found…
Mueller is now in extreme spiritual addiction. Simply put, he’s now a puppet. Run by astral beings.
Therefore, you can’t depend upon him to help human beings. Granted, it’s unpredictable. According to my research, almost always, a person in extreme spiritual addiction is being run by one specific group of entities. And most (though not all) of them, have the agenda of weakening human beings.
Incidentally, which other prominent politicians today are also in extreme spiritual addiction?
Erggg, it’s a pretty long list. Most people who signed up to work with Trump have developed this problem before leaving.
On the other hand, you and I and many millions of other human beings are doing great! For inspiration, you might wish to check out the Enlightenment Life List. Inspiring! No wonder it’s the most popular post here at this blog.
How to Support an Impeachment Inquiry against Trump
August is the month when U.S. senators and representatives go back to their home districts. Congresspeople, in particular, want to know how the people they represent feel about launching a full impeachment inquiry.
Well, don’t passively wait for others to tell them. You can speak out.
If you’re really ambitious, and have the time, go to a Town Hall.
But here’s the quick, totally, private way to make your voice heard.
Step #1. Find out where your representative stands so far on supporting an impeachment inquiry or impeachment proceedings
Click on this website. Search on the name of your rep.
Step #2. If your congressperson HASN’T supported it yet, call up and leave a message.
Here’s how to get a direct phone line.
- Click here.
- In a prominent box near the top of the page, type in your zip code.
- Hit FIND.
- That simple!
Then use the direct phone line for your congressperson. And go for it. Participate in your democracy.
Sure, you could email, but I’ve heard that personal messages are more effective. If you feel shy, write a script in advance. Then call up and read it.
Step #3. What if your congressperson HAS supported it already? Please call up and leave a thank you message.
To find that contact info, use the instructions in Step 2. That simple!
In some districts, your congressman or congresswoman has done something really courageous.
Last night, I called Jennifer Wexton’s office and left her a message. Sure, you can do this at 10 p.m. A fine time for doing something important!
Just in Case This Motivates You Extra
For the last three weeks, I’ve seen trouble. Garden-type trouble. Disgustingly developing right outside the window, here in my pink office. Because a weird kind of nest of something was growing on a nearby tree. And I could see the progress, day by day. Like visible corruption.
By Friday, I became concerned that the thing was going to fall into my yard. Even though, technically, the host tree isn’t on my property. But my garden can’t be entirely fenced off from the outside world, can it?
Long story short, as I started mentally writing today’s blog post…
My hero, Greg, arrived with his truck. Greg works for an extermination company PMSI. Mitch and I have worked with them for the past 28 years. Nearly as long as we’ve had our house. Mostly they’ve helped remove pests inside the house. Including termites — yecch!
He called the problem by its rightful name: A nest of caterpillars. Some 500 caterpillars that would have hatched into gypsy moths. Hurting trees all over the block. Not just my own beloved garden.
Taking action, with a big grabber tool… plus some kind of decontamination spray… Greg made short work of that problem.
“How much do I owe you?” I asked. I always love paying people who’ve done good work for me. And this was great work.
“Nothing,” said Greg. “Nest removal like this is not on the list of services I provide. So when I see them, I just take care of them. Yesterday, I must have taken down five of them. Probably the people owning the property never even knew. But I did it anyway.”
Every single day, every one of us can help others. We can help society. Can help the environment. We can do good because that’s what humans do.
Please take a few minutes to support an impeachment inquiry against Trump. Of course, you and I can make a difference!
