Cambridge Joins Growing List of Cities Taking a Stand for Trump's Impeachment

- Common Dreams staff

The Massachusetts city of Cambridge will be weighing in Monday on whether the city should call for an impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump.

Trump? Hell, the entire capitalist system has got to go!


#3

The entire capitalist system probably should go, but that's a goal that's easy to say but difficult to imposible to explain how to bring it about.

A change of that magnitude needs a step by step plan that would answer questions such as 1) what would become of all the money in all the banks, retirement accounts, bonds, and so on and so on? 2) How would we go about ensuring life supportive goods and services continue during the period of transition? 3) Who would be in charge of the justice and criminal uncarceration system? 4) Who would be in charge of the Military and who would have the authority to command its use? A lot more questions along these lines must be asked and answered

Getting rid through some quasi legal process such as a presidential impeachment is do-able and might smooth out a few of the present problems.

But if people are serious about removing the country from the curse of capitalism, then there needs to be an action plan that people can understand and can believe that once put into play things would be in the path to better lives for a majority of the populace.

The only trouble with impeaching Donald Trump, however, is that we'll end up with Pence as President, and he's even more of a menace, and more dangerous than Trump.

Stop supporting capitalism and organized patriarchal religion --

If you haven't already tuned out of MSM, do that --

If you still have cable TV think about pulling the plug on it --

If you still eat animals, think about ending your connection to that violence which
harms the planet and the health of humans.

That's a start --


#6

Right -- and the Dem Party is as corrupted as the GOP.

We need to overturn this entire government.


#7

And how will you do that- by "talking " on a computer?


#8

Well, non-cooperation with Elites and capitalism is one way -- but only IF we get
going and united very soon. Otherwise they will have such complete control of
our government that capitalism/bus-i-ness will no longer be necessary.

Patriarchy is underpinned by organized patriarchal religion - stop supporting them.

Stop supporting the chain of violence required in animal-eating, slaughter houses and "meat."
You'll be helping the planet and your own health.

Pull the plug on Cable TV -- preferably in a united action with others.
We might wait for the appropriate cause.


#9

There are plenty of appropriate causes but if it requires waiting till individuals to choose one at a time to do these things, it won't happen until after worsening conditions have reached terminal critical mess.

I don't want people to unplug from mass media. I want people with situational knowledge and charismatic communication skills to take over the media and use them as a way of motivating billions of people to change their ways of living and transform society into something kinder, gentler, and more sustainable in a very short time, before it's too late if it's not already. I don't think this will happen, but it's not impossible so I hope humankind can rise to the occasion.

I have been a vegan for thirty four years! Also, stop buying their products, . Call your US federal rep and your state rep, and tell them you will not be voting for them unless they represent the people and the planet. Go to actions with local groups, and join, and go to meetings with climate action now. You have given good suggestions as well.

It most certainly depends on the population deciding to unite and, at the least, it could be as
LABOR as we are all labor. We do not require the permission of government nor corporations
to unite as labor.

I would suggest to you that the Wild Card is Global Warming and the primary work of Trump for
Elites is to STOP any information coming from government which might convince the public that
they have been duped over the last 60 years or so by primarily the oil industry's $50 billion $$
campaign to lie to the public about Global Warming. Oil industry comes doubly into it as we can
longer burn fossil fuels which was clear at the least in 1957 when the public was introduced to
the model of Global Warming - but secondly that they represent corporate/capitalist views.
The NY Times provided the soap box for more than 20 years for these lies which Exxon used
to confuse the public and they were presented on the Op-Ed page of the NY Times almost daily.
They could not be replied to by any means including Letters to the Editor because they were
"ad-editorials."

There has long been censorship of our scientists (See: James Hansen) but enough information
got out during the Obama years to make the public more aware and more concerned.
This is why it is so necessary now for Trump to ensure that nothing more gets out to raise the
concern of the public any further because if that should happen capitalism would be immediately
over. It is verging on it now as the public awakens to the truth of its evils.
We should also note that one of the primary cultural changes called for by scientists in their
repeat warning in 1992 was population control and that is, indeed, the primary and first target of
Trump in trying to overturn Roe vs Wade which will mean not only abortion but the pill which can
also be considered "abortion" because it prevents a fertilized egg from adhering to the lining of
the womb.

Re this ...

I don't want people to unplug from mass media.

Actually I was talking about CABLE TV which is somewhat different and offering increasingly more
violent programming, much of it showing torture (often of women) and what I'd call jack-hammer sex --
and pornography (Comcast/Verizon) which is also violent and basically propaganda against females
which encourages violence against them.

MSM is basically CIA/corporate "news" which is also propaganda and I doubt that you will see a change in
that into other hands other than ever larger monopoly corporate control.

See: Operation Mockingbird https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Mockingbird
but in order to see the full intentions/scope of the importance of controlling our "free press" at that time
you have to also see the intentions/scope of Operation Paperclip and Operation Gladio.
These are only a handful of CIA operations that are regularly discussed among possibly thousands.

mealouts --

Think everyone can recall being taught in grammar school what they should eat so that's
pretty difficult for most people to recover from. If they could see the chain of violence for
themselves that would have an immediate effect, but they make sure that doesn't happen.

Last year there was quite a campaign to try to make public aware of the dangers of foods
like hot dogs and bacon and similar foods, but I noticed that immediately the producers of
those products began flooding the aisles of supermarkets with those very same products.

"It is harder to convince someone that they are being fooled
than it is to fool them."

Though how in this year 2017 it isn't clear to all of the public that they have constantly been
fooled by government under the control of capitalism which is suicidal, is difficult to figure out.
