Trump’s Cancer Infected and Denigrated All Three Branches of Our Democracy!

Reading the January 23rd Washington Post story about the film on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual assaults, I learned these charges were not fully investigated.

The article is not entirely clear that Trump stopped the additional inquiries, but Democrats felt the Senate confirmation hearing was rushed.

In most unproven, lack of strong visual or other evidence as in the case of George Floyd, in the “He said, she said” cases, the verdict favors the accused.

PBS did a lot of investigation Kavanaugh all of which you can read here, but after seemingly promising Senator Susan Collins of Maine not to vote against Roe, he was nominated.

If any of these stores are true, you would think Kavanaugh might have favored the option of helping women avoid child births in the midst of his educational career.

Turns out these stories have many other accusers who were not investigated because as the FBI said in a statement, they had no authorization to do so. But of course, it was Kavanaugh’s vote with the majority that killed Roe.

So on to my point about Trump’s effect on the three branches of our Federal Government.

Trump was not the sole destroyer of the Supreme Court’s credibility but his effect on its Roe killing will likely produce future judicial tragedies which will be long lasting.

As to Congress, his GOP control has identified the numerous US Republican lackeys in the US House of Representatives who kissed his ring regardless of his behavior.

Presumably the disgraced GOP will find other Presidential candidates of similar Trump positions on such issues as anti-abortion, LBGTQ, gun control steps and voting rights as Trump’s plunge from favor continues.

Two down, one to go! Certainly, the overlooked, unrecognized job Biden has done in his first 2 years has made a promising start in rectifying Trump’s disastrous years. Even on choice by Biden, a liberal Catholic.

As our $31 trillion debt ceiling gets argued and used to make political points, its eventual approval is certain.

What is far from certain is our future ability to keep our world’s currency’s credibility at higher and higher debt levels.

Can we negotiate government spending cuts and keep vital priorities? I doubt any partisan will be willing and open.

But both parties got us the huge national debt over decades for which Trump doesn’t get total credit. However, one of his 2016 moves in elevating our national debt was to get corporate taxes cut from 35 to 21% and insure the widening of the wealth gap, as very little trickled down to the less wealthy.

However, Trump did bat a 1000 for his moves that undermined people’s confidence in our elected officials and our form of government. That can only be restored at the ballot box if infirmed voters don’t let George Santos, Marjorie Taylor Greene or other similar disgraced elected officials take office! If we do it’s our fault!

We hopefully await Trump’s indictment by the US Department of Justice, but does this change the picture for our near-term future and that of our earth?

Limits to human growth are already widely exceeded as scientists keep telling the world leaders. Yes, these same deaf folks who frequently gather at posh watering holes such at Davos but can persistently ignore the glacier ice melting, the rainforest destruction, the climate anomalies, our massive killing of our precious flora and fauna.

Seldom noted although the powerful January first segment on CBS’s 60 Minutes highlighted widely the available and broadly agreed scientific evidence that the reason for all living things on earth are relentlessly moving to the 6th Extinction of homo sapiens is human greed, ignorance and indifference as illustrated by the inaction of world leaders most of whom know the truth.
