LETTER: Who should be impeached?

(Metro Creative)

To the Editor:

As an independent candidate for Congress (2018), please consider this as an open letter to South Dakota’s federal delegation, all of whom are Republicans: Shame on you! Why haven’t you stood up to defend your country and your President Donald Trump? For nearly three years, Trump personally has suffered a flood of scurrilous attacks for the good things he has done and for fabulously untrue things he has not.

Item: On June 20, 2017, he signed an executive order reviving the National Space Council. On Dec. 11, 2017, he signed Space Directive 1, directing NASA to gear up for a crewed lunar colonization program, followed by a mission to Mars and beyond. And on March 26, 2019, the timetable was pushed up to put the next man and the first woman on the Moon by 2024. NASA Administrator Bridenstine has termed the program “Artemis.”

What has Congress done? Cut out the future for our children and grandchildren by authorizing only half the funds required to carry out the mission. For that crime, Congress should be impeached.

Item: The entire nation is reeling from a drug epidemic that is killing more of our youth every year than died in the entire Vietnam War. For that crime, Congress should be impeached.


Item: In a phone call, President Trump asked Volodymyr Zelensky, the newly-elected President of Ukraine, to help uncover the criminals who backed the pro-Nazi coup in 2014 via politial support, $5 billion of aid and blackmail. It turns out that the criminals in this case were Democrats — Obama, Nuland, Biden and others — caught “brown-handed” putting “leaders” into power in Ukraine who celebrate Hitler’s birthday yearly, who have imposed a brutal austerity on the Ukrainian people and who have attempted to get the U.S. to war with Russia.

The Hypocritical House responded by launching a treasonous impeachment inquiry against President Trump for his “crime” of asking for help to get at the truth.

For the crime of promoting Nazism and for covering it up, Congress, not the president, should be impeached.

It is an out-of-state, private, for-profit company taking our beautiful, productive land by eminent domain for private gain by generating power to sell to the highest out of state bidder.
If the city is trying to save expenses, let them save somewhere else in the budget that doesn't affect everyone.
