Trump Makes History (The Wrong Kind): Impeached A Second Time In His First Term As President

Ten Republicans joined Democrats in a stunning rebuke of President Donald Trump yesterday. 

In a 232-197 vote, House members looking into the calamitous, violent, state-of-emergency events that seized the Capitol for more than a week found Trump's incendiary urgings and false allegations played a major role

Trump had claimed, without any court-tested proof, that massive voter fraud, allegedly orchestrated by the Biden and Democratic  "machine," had robbed him of reelection. But Trump's mantra did galvanize many hardline supporters, who rallied and mobilized in his behalf.

Yesterday's House vote officially charges Trump with "incitement of insurrection." Trump, whose term ends on Jan. 20, still must face trial in the U.S. Senate.

It will be Trump's second time being impeached--and in his first term. In 2019 Trump had to answer to charges that he and his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, were pressing the Ukrainian government to launch a bogus probe into Hunter Biden, who at the time was an executive with an energy company there.

In your opinion, what  major item should his top-priority list include? Why?

America's Race/Class/Pow-er Conundrum: Can Freedom and Democracy Truly Be Achieved?

Americans like to believe their country holds aloft for the rest of the world to see its bright, shining beacon of freedom, equality and justice for all. 

We know that at best these are what we hope for and aspire to achieve. The events of the past week remind us we have far to go, as we battle our way through the American conundrum of race, class and power.

It's all about Donald Trump and how he masterminded his own demise.
