It really doesn’t matter what the senate does. This is not an unknown situation but a major predator who has devastated thousands of people for decades and has now spent three years laying waste to the federal government. The majority of the country wants him gone and most of them understand the nature of this evil.

While we have the second party blowing smoke like a steam engine and reaping the spoils most of them know how bad this is. They just don’t have any escape route. Many of them are desperate. As the House broadcasts the layers of stupidity and criminal action, Trump’s tax returns are going to show up, and the line of whistleblowers starts to grow, McConnell will probably decide to cut the sucker loose once he sees no alterntive.

But that is not a good thing. I see this as a preliminary stage to the breakup of the US. There is literally no way that what we have left can be reconstituted into anything viable. But even if it could that time is past. In an earlier time it could have just as it did after Nixon. Now the age of large nation states is no longer sustainable. People are far too volatile and informed. Even the ignorant.

In many ways this seems like the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand in 1914 and the positioning of declarations that followed. That was the breakup of the 19th century Western world. The result was the period of false calm before the storm of war that was far worse than anyone could imagine. And it took almost forty years of planetary war to achieve the new stability.

I’m not saying this will be war in that form. This war is, I’m afraid, being waged on us by our planet. Most people have not even begun to understand the nature of this war.
