Midnight in Washington

If you watched or listened to the Impeachment trial of DJT as much as I did, you probably agree that what we are going through in our government, our media, and in our social institutions is historic.  We are watching history walking through our lives in a way that many have never seen.

Not since the 1930's has the American public moved towards the de-evolutionary urges that are found in the current political landscape.  In his closing argument Adam Schiff characterized it as "Midnight in Washington."

Congressman Schiff does his best to awaken the souls of those who will vote their political expediency instead of their moral conscience.  This is history.

But he knows that it is Midnight in Washington.

He knows that the Senate Majority that did not want to bring the testimony of John Bolton into their deliberation is a majority that is not deliberating but instead perseverating.  They are mentally stuck and unable to shift gears.  They repeat and repeat that this impeachment reverses the election even though their VP and their party would still have the White House.  They can't go beyond their own talking points to allow the  light in to see the possibility that their leader has corrupted their party, the executive branch, and the institutions that touch it.

Some would say that the R's are voting out of fear.  If this is true, then we are indeed in a dark time of ignorance....for fear is indeed a scary thing.

This Un-President will take his coming not-guilty verdict next Wednesday and attack everyone and thing that he blames for his richly deserved impeachment.  He will attack Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff.  His sycophants will gather in the White House to laugh and clap at his off color remarks as he basically threatens revenge on all who would stand in opposition to the imbalance that reigns supreme in his infantile ego state.

Meanwhile, the Coronavirus threatens our social welfare  as cities, ships, and travelers become quarantined and markets react with uncertainty. All the while, Climate Change continues to stalk our civilization into a corner brought about by our own inaction and the inherent greed of our economic system.

So where do we go from this dark night?

How do we right our ship?

Is the answer an aging lovable Jewish socialist, a moderate but damaged vice-president, a  super- bright young gay mayor from Indiana who speaks 7 languages, or a energetic female Harvard professor from Oklahoma?  Or is the answer a real oligarch from New York?

As the Poet says, "There is a crack in everything...that's how the light gets in."

Maybe this Unpresident will overplay his hand, maybe the plague will kill his economy, maybe the far right fascist will march with their torches one time too many and light the hearts of  Christians everywhere.

Maybe Frogs will drop out of the sky.

Maybe the Dawn will come.


And here is Mitt Romney Feb 5th, 2020. The first senator ever to vote for impeachment of a president from his own party....THE FIRST

I can run no more
With that lawless crowd
While the killers in high places
Say their prayers out loud.
But they've summoned, they've summoned up
A thundercloud
They're gonna hear from me.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in
