Climate Action Force Strong Enough To Unseat McConnell

Washington (Gallant Gold Media Hill Report | Analysis | June 24, 2019) –  The American public has moved into action on the Climate Crisis. The public isn’t waiting for legislators to pass bills, but rather running forward, choosing products and services based on whether or not a business has a climate action agenda.

Slowly but surely, climate action is taking root and starting to sprout all over the country, particularly in coastal cities and states.

The momentum is increasing exponentially and is may prove to have the power necessary to unseat McConnell in 2020.

We’ve got the power as individuals to make changes that save lives:

  • “Shining city on the hill” takes on new meaning in 2019. Towns are installing solar panels on streets to harness green energy.
  • Retailers a going cold turkey by eliminating single-use plastic bags all together. Here one day, gone the next. Shoppers better have reusables in their cars.
  • Towns are banning plastic straws.
  • Restaurants are choosing to replace plastic straws with paper.
  • According to CNN, 90% of the ocean’s plastic flows through 10 rivers resulting in 400 million pieces of plastic to wash ashore far-flung islands in the Indian Ocean, amongst these were one million shoes and 375,000 toothbrushes (very easy to correct this by keeping tabs on personal belongings when boating and on shorelines)
  • YouTube videos are popping up showing consumers how to convert a t-shirt into a reusable shopping bag without having to sew.
  • Families are taking advantage of amazing sustainability offers and switching to solar energy with $0 cost for transitioning.
  • More Americans are choosing to walk and ride bikes for local errands.
  • High Schools in foreign countries have begun requiring students plant 10 trees in order to graduate. American high schools can easily do the same
  • Families have created climate action weekly habits: recycle, cold water to wash clothes, turn off lights when leave a room, LED lights.

These tiny, easy adjustments have a significant impact when implemented on a grand scale by millions of Americans. We do NOT need to wait for legislators to act. Begin today to implement your family green agenda.

McConnell is singularly the most responsible American for global warming, voting NAY and eventually blocking every single solitary US initiative to curb carbon emissions, elevating carbon levels from 345 PPM in 1985 to 415 PMM in 2019.

Foreign countries are much further ahead than America. France has begun installing solar roads.Many countries are banning plastic single-use bags by 2025.

Category 5 hurricanes kill, maim and destroy. If all that it takes to reduce and prevent are simple, basic, everyday green habits, is there any benefit to not implementing immediately?

McConnell is highly likely to be removed from office in 2020 if Climate Action becomes the number one priority to the American majority this election season. We have the power here. The ball is in our court.

Impeachment is Easier Than It Seems

“A likely impossibility is always preferable to an unconvincing possibility.” ~Aristotle

The world has been traumatized by Trump’s delusion, and McConnell’s support of Trump’s delusion, for two painfully slow, long years. This feeling of continuous cognitive dissonance while we’re forced to endure these two self-serving cowards as they pretend to lead our massive nation, in the midst of defrauding us, ignites that effervescent American spirit that fills us with motivation, and the “can do” determination, on these toughest, darkest days.

Trump and McConnell appear to have a quid pro quo relationship. Kentucky is the largest coal producing state in the country. Trump has gone all in on promoting coal, and passing legislation that benefits coal producers while harming the health and well-being of millions of Americans. In return, McConnell has pledged his loyalty to trump in equal measure.

This is corruption. And this is why we have a twisted stalemate during this government shutdown that’s been a traumatic event for 800,000+ Americans.

According to The Hill today (Tuesday January 15, 2019), McConnell boldly blocked a “House bill to reopen government for second time.” Additionally, The Hill published the scoop that McConnell vowed “the senate won’t override Trump veto on shutdown fight.”

Which brings us to an historic crossroad. We’re forced to make a choice.

  • Unconvincing possibility? | McConnell and or Trump doing the right thing… proceeding forward with ending the shutdown because it’s what’s best for America.
  • Likely impossibility? | Expel McConnell so that we can impeach Trump which will end the shutdown. Perhaps Amazon and Apple and several states could front a loan to pay the 800,000 furloughed federal employees until this is over.

If Aristotle advises that it’s best to go with the “likely impossibility,” well then… let’s just do it. What do we have to lose? Absolutely nothing. The only way we can lose is by doing nothing, or by caving and letting a malicious bully weaken our resolve.

Impeachment is much easier than it appears. Just 3 steps:

(1)  House of Representatives debate the Articles of Impeachment against Trump and vote. They need a simple majority.

(2) Expel Mitch McConnell from the Senate. Senators must have 67 votes to succeed at this. McConnell has a super majority opposed to him right now, so this shouldn’t require much persuasion. Fourteen Senators have been expelled from the Senate since the U.S. Constitution was ratified.

(3) Once McConnell is expelled, the Senate will hold an Impeachment Trial:

  • House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Representative Jerry Nadler, acts as prosecutor and submits evidence
  • Trump’s lawyers submit his defense
  • Chief Justice John Roberts presides as judge and rules on whether the evidence is admissible
  • The Senate acts as the jury, 67 need to say “Aye” to impeach

It seems a very likely impossibility that we can succeed at this if we move swiftly to expel McConnell as soon as possible.
