#WordlessWednesday: Soliloquy

I’m going to level up with my blogging buddies. First, thank you to the people who read Art by Rob Goldstein. You are my teachers and friends, and I am grateful to you.

I have lived alone and in quarantine for almost five months as our President weaponizes COVID19 and divides our nation. I’m stressed and afraid, and this feels like it is never going to end.

Our press and political leaders behave as if we are the powerless victims of a king over whom the law has no authority.

None of it makes sense. I don’t understand why we can’t arrest and remove a criminal president who threatens our nation and our lives.

It looks to me as if Trump and his Republicans are killing us on purpose. Am I right, or is this paranoia?

This confusion and anxiety are intolerable. I am continually dissociating and losing time.

For my health, I have to take another break.

I’m not fond of frequent breaks, but I can’t focus for more than a few minutes at a time.

I’ll be back shortly.

Politics: A Short Break for the Impeachment Hearings

I’m taking a short break to focus on the House Impeachment Hearings.

With newly released transcripts from the closed-door hearings, it feels
like the hearings began.

The testimony of today’s witness, Catherine Croft,  describes a foreign
policy designed to please, Vladimir Putin.

“In a briefing with Mick Mulvaney, the question centered around the Russian reaction,” she continued.

“What was the concern about the Russian reaction?” asked the staffer.

“That Russia would react negatively to the provision of Javelins to Ukraine,” she said.  The Daily Beast

Here are the Constitutional reasons for the impeachment of Donald Trump from The Beat with Ari Melber:

Hillary Clinton was right about everything

She’s still right.

For folks who doubt the seriousness of Russia’s 2016 attack on our elections, this is a screenshot I took on August 29, 2016, of the top headlines on BING. If you examine it, you’ll see a search string that includes the Anthony Weiner scandal. I did not run that search. My browser was hijacked.
