Charges Revealed Against Donald Trump - Abuse and Obstruction

The Judiciary Committee of the United States (US) House of Representatives earlier today revealed charges of high crimes and misdemeanors against President Donald Trump.

The named articles of impeachment against Trump are: abuse of power per Ukraine aid; and obstruction of Congress.

A vote in the House of Representatives, one of the two chambers - the other being the Senate, which make up the US Federal Legislature, on the formal decision to impeachment the 45th president, could come as early as next week following a vote slated for this Thursday, in the Judiciary Committee on whether to go ahead with the charges of high crimes and misdemeanors.

Toward the Impeachment of Donald Trump

Speaker of the United States (US) House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi has asked the Chairman of the body's Judicial Committee, to proceed with articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump for abuses of the High Office.

And in doing so, Pelosi and democrats, have opted to stand for the American Republic, the Constitution and for Democracy, over the man, a position many Republicans have, so far,  failed to uphold.

Pelosi confirmed that the House of Representatives - one of the two chambers along with the Senate, of the US Legislature, will file impeachment charges against Trump for abuse of power.

An Implied New World Order Flawed Upon Its Face

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and United States (US) President Donald Trump, more so than they apparently realized it, revealed an implied new world order before a Press conference in London, United Kingdom (UK), on Monday, just before the opening of the NATO Summit.

In confirming their desires for dialogue with troublesome Russia and expressing their mutual suspect of the People's Republic of China (PRC), which they erringly view as more worrisome to the alliance than Russia, both Trump and Stoltenberg via their comments, I have deducted, are suggesting a new world order that looks very much like those of yore that wreaked havoc upon humanity in two world wars and robbed rising and developing people of dignity and resources.

The Peddling of Military Security Over Ideological Advancement

Ideology - democratic ideology, is dying and it seems that the peddling of military security is set to replace the system of rights, opportunities and freedoms that have been the championed causes of the American Republic that created its global strength, respect and influence ever since its founding.

This morning's London meeting and Press conference with US President Donald Trump and NATO's Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, in my opinion, affirmed a step back from democracy and a move toward a propulsion of the sale of military security.

Regarding NATO

Tomorrow, December 3, 2019, members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), will convene a two-day Summit just outside London, United Kingdom (UK). This Summit, which falls on the 70th anniversary of the founding of the defense pact, is significant against a changing world and its affairs that have dramatically changed since 1949.

NATO remains a formidable and important pact, yet it has failed to address and to remedy the changing attitude of its main guarantor -  the United States (US), under an isolating Donald Trump.

Hong Kong has Spoken - Pan-Democracy Parties Sweep Council Elections

A record number of registered voters in the People's Republic of China's (PRC) Special Administrative Region - Hong Kong, went to the polls on Sunday and overwhelmingly, they elected Pan-Democracy members to the City's District Council amid more than six-months of protests - protests, which have been violent at times.

As reported by the South China Morning Post(SCMP), a record 72.1 % of registered electors turned out to vote -  a stark increase over the 47%, who voted in similar elections back in 2015.

The Case for Impeachment - Compelling

Career diplomats, foreign affairs specialists, veterans and other witnesses have testified in the public impeachment hearing before the Intelligence Committee of the United States (US) House of Representatives into misgivings of President Donald Trump.

When the impeachment hearing concluded its public component this week, I believe a very compelling case for impeachment had been made against Trump for actions contrary to the Constitution and amok of the high office of President of the United States.

Universal Children's Day and Child Protections

Yesterday, November 20, was the United Nations (UN) declared Universal Children's Day, of just plain, Children's Day, even though many countries celebrate an International Children's Day in June of the calendar year. Whatever the celebrated time per country, yesterday's designation was fitting amid too many present events which threaten the futures of too many of the world's children.

Therefore, November 20 should have served and should continue to serve as a reminder to adults to honor the principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child to keep children safe, to help them learn and to always uphold children's rights to speak and to be heard.

A Day Later

I reached another year of life the other day, which apparently, signified and denoted that I am now on the declining curve of life - lol. And, surprisingly, in the the moments leading up to and during my event, I spent a lot of time in reflection and in vision to peer around the curve to tomorrow.

Not considering my own experiences, but referencing humanity's, I have deducted that humanity's greatest enemy is humanity itself brought to wrought by a failure to right historical wrongs; a waning empathy; classism; populism and isolationism; broken promises; and failures to protect the environment.

Damaged Democracy

That democracy has reached such an abysmal state in the United States (US) that a sitting president would seek to go on social media to "intimidate" a witness of an impeachment hearing as she was testifying before a Congressional committee is affirmation of the depth of damaged inflicted upon the American Republic under Donald Trump.

As former US Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, was testifying at the public impeachment hearing of Donald Trump under the roof of the US Congress, on Capitol Hill, in Washington, DC, Trump took to Twitter to disparage the Envoy.
