Your fourth point does not mention that election of Senators and Representatives that will actually BE a check on 'the donald' is essential to prevent the damage he is capable and willing to inflict on the Nation.  'Impeach' means 'to accuse' a public official, before an appropriate tribunal, of misconduct in office. That's not enough by itself...the 'tribunal' has to concur and do something effective about it in order for it to have meaning.  Otherwise it just becomes political 'fodder'...a basis for arguments to influence voters. 

 

Your fifth point is, perhaps, the most hopeful of the lot except that having the United States essentially abdicate its leadership position, as 'the donald' is doing, leaves a power vacuum.  Someone will capitalize on that.  Russia, China, Iran, Saudi Arabia....pick your poison.  Even that power vacuum is filled by a responsible 'head of state', the bad feeling created by 'the donald' is likely to create an impact that stays with us for a long, long time.  This is the reality left to all the rest of us by short-sighted pique of phony 'patriots'.  It's necessary to say this this way on this Memorial Day Weekend.  To do otherwise would disrespect the 'real patriots' who seek to preserve what really is great about this Country. 


How can anyone be enthralled with that fat, ugly, rude vulgar individual? 
the poor man, he thinks he is somebody.

Europe is not enthralled with Donald.

    Yea to the Press in the EU.   From Germany:

 

     

“The U.S. elected a laughing stock to the presidency and has now made itself dependent on a joke of a man. The country is, as David Brooks wrote recently in the New York Times, dependent on a child. The Trump administration has no foreign policy because Trump has consistently promised American withdrawal while invoking America’s strength. He has promised both no wars and more wars. He makes decisions according to his mood, with no strategic coherence or tactical logic. Moscow and Beijing are laughing at America. Elsewhere, people are worried.

“Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States. He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it. He doesn’t read. He doesn’t bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.

“He is a man free of morals. As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump. And one of the media’s tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly. He is a danger to the world.

“The first is Trump’s resignation, which won’t happen. The second is that Republicans in the House and Senate support impeachment, which would be justified by the president’s proven obstruction of justice, but won’t happen because of the Republicans’ thirst for power, which they won’t willingly give up. The third possible solution is the invocation of the 25th Amendment, which would require the cabinet to declare Trump unfit to discharge the powers of the presidency. That isn’t particularly likely either. Fourth: The Democrats get ready to fight and win back majorities in the House and Senate in midterm elections, which are 18 months away, before they then pursue option two, impeachment.”

“Fifth: the international community wakes up and finds a way to circumvent the White House and free itself of its dependence on the U.S. Unlike the preceding four options, the fifth doesn’t directly solve the Trump problem, but it is nevertheless necessary – and possible.

 

     Somehow, I doubt that donalds press messengers will report on this in the US.    http://washingtonjournal.com/2017/05/26/germanys-top-magazine-just-called-trumps-impeachment-blister...
