The Cabaret

A Cabaret is a place that provides entertainment like a nightclub. It is a bistro, café, nightspot, nitery or a roadhouse.

Congratulations to the US Senate Republicans, they have turned the US Senate into a Cabaret. Many Republican Senators have stated that President Donald J. Trump is guilty as charged by the House Democrats, but does not rise to the level of convicting him and removing him from office. If pressing a foreign government to just announce an investigation of the Bidens and thus interfering in US 2020 elections is not worth of impeachment, nothing is!

Republican Senator Marco Rubio's mind blowing statement:

"Just because actions meet a standard of impeachment does not mean it is in the best interest of the country to remove a President from office." 😉

Say what?! It is like saying; "We know that you robbed the bank, but since you were hungry, getting ready for dinner, you can keep the money but don't do it again unless you are hungry again. 😂

"L’État, c’est moi"

Louis XIV
Louis XIV ruled France for over 72 years, so long that he was succeeded on the throne not by his son or his grandson, but by his great-grandson. It was the longest reign in the history of any major European throne, and it took place at the height of belief in the “divine right of kings,” to rule as solely and autocratically as they chose. So it comes as no surprise that his famous historical catchphrase would be “L’État, c’est moi”—literally, “I am the State.

I strongly believe that Donald J. Trump believes that he is the reincarnation of Louis XIV and the continuation of his reign. He is ruling our country like an absolute monarch. Even George III obeyed his Palrliament.

Moral Courage

Adam Schiff
Congressman Adam Schiff, a California Democrat who is steering the impeachment inquiry into President Trump and is the lead prosecutor in his Senate trial,  quoted former Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy in his closing remarks to the Senate: 

“Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change the world which yields most painfully to change. Few are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues and the wrath of their society. And then I understood by that measure just how rare moral courage is. Real political courage doesn't come from disagreeing with our opponents, but from disagreeing with our friends and with our own party because it means having to stare down accusations of disloyalty and betrayal; you are a Democrat or Republican in name only."

Claire McCaskill

The first thing than came to my mind was Tulsi Gabbard and her being ostracized by the Democratic Party and blacked out by the mainstream media (CNN and MSNBC) for resigning asVice-Chair of theDNC to support Bernie Sanders , in 2016, and voting "Present" to impeach Donald Trump, in 2020.

Tulsi had the valor and moral courage to vote "Present" instead of voting "Yes" for impeachment because she believes that impeaching Donald Trump would never lead to removal from office and it is very divisive in an already divided nation.

Ex-Senator Claire McCaskill, an MSNBC analyst, stated on the air after finding out of Tulsi's   "Present" vote: "Tulsi Gabbard is trying to grab attention."  She further stated: "I do not want to talk about her anymore." 

 Claire McCaskill does not know the meaning of "moral courage."
