Almost all Donald Trump has done is wrong, but not against the law or Constitution. We need a “Never Forget List” of his wrongs to be informed and motivated.
His actions to get the President of the Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joseph Biden’s son probably broke the law and violated the Constitution. An Inquiry is under way to decide what happened. He may have broken the law in other ways too.
If the House passes Articles of Impeachment after the Inquiry, Trump will not be impeached in the Senate. Republicans have already voted in the House as a block against an inquiry to get at the facts of what happened with the aid to the Ukraine.
In the Senate, facts won’t matter. It takes a 2/3 or 67% vote of the Senate for impeachment. That means only 34 votes (34%) against impeachment will kill it. The Republicans have a vote wall of 51 Senators. Impeachment will be “DOA” or “Dead on Arrival”.
The election of 2020 is the only real way to rid this country of the demagogue and his cult like supporters (see below). The purpose of this site will be to stay focused on the major facts of the past and present amidst all the distractions of the Impeachment process. There may be disagreement as to whether Trump’s behavior with the Ukraine merits impeachment. We must remember all the reasons that prove Donald Trump is a demagogue and should be voted out.
The Never Forget List
This list is under construction.
Much more will be added soon
the boom before the bust
Today’s robust economy is being fueled by massive borrowing of money inflated by Trump’s tax cut. The US economy is heading for a cliff in the next recession. As government revenues decline there will be much deeper deficits. We are in uncharted water as to how much total debt the Federal government and economy can handle.
Trump started trade wars especially with China by levying tariffs. In spite of his repeated lying that China pays the tariffs, the average US household will pay about $2,000 per year by the end of 2019 according to Forbes canceling out what little benefit the average US household got from the recent tax cut.
“Nobody knew healthcare could be so complicated”
During the election, Trump mumbled how he would fix healthcare by making deals with hospitals. This showed his ignorance as hospitals are a part of our expensive healthcare problem, but there is a lot more to it like unrestricted drug prices; discrimination against pre-existing conditions and the costs of having insurance companies.
Trump pushes for the repeal of Obamacare piece by piece or all at once. A Republican replacement that would have cut off tens of millions from healthcare and weakened protection from discrimination due to pre-existing conditions was voted down by Democrats and a few Republicans with a conscience who read the bill.
If Trump had read the bill, he would have pointed out what was so good about it. Instead, he showed his ignorance and laziness by saying “Nobody knew healthcare could be so complicated”.
Build a wall along the US Mexican border.
He is on record for saying Mexico would pay for it, but that was for his cult to fall for. It is being built in small sections with funds siphoned from other departments like the military. The rest would be with borrowed money adding to the federal deficit and national debt load.
There is proof that the wall can be defeated by going over it with ladders, under it with tunnels or through it by cutting holes.
The Paris Climate Agreement
The European Union and 174 states put together and signed a better than nothing agreement to curtail carbon emissions. Trump insists the global climate crisis is a hoax. That he is right and everyone else in the world is wrong.
The Iran Nuclear Deal Framework
The permanent members of the United Nations Security Council—the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, France, and China—plus Germany and the European Union spent years to put together an agreement to stop Iran nuclear development. Trump decided he knows better than everyone and withdrew from the agreement.
Syria and ISIS
Without consulting our military commanders and allies, he said he was pulling US troops out of Syria, but took over Syrian Oil fields instead. This at the cost of betraying our Kurd allies and dismaying our other allies.
The Ukraine and the U.S. Constitution
By withholding military aid to the Ukraine, he pressured the President of the Ukraine to do things that would influence the US Presidential election. This jeopardized the Ukraine’s ability to defend territory from Russia. It was also a violation of the US Constitution.
