The bold warriors of the McResistance are bound and determined to get Trump impeached at any cost, come what may. I mean, so long as it doesn’t inconvenience America’s oligarchs or interfere with the profit margins of the military-industrial complex.

According to Francis Boyle, professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law, Trump has already committed impeachable war crimes in Syria. Boyle calls the case for impeachment due to war crimes a “slam dunk”. If Democrats were serious about their determination to give the world President Pence at all costs, they wouldn’t be banging on about the crumbling Russiagate conspiracy theory or Trump’s obnoxious tweets, they’d be focusing on the actual, tangible, provable things that this administration has done in Syria.

They will not do this, though. Trump has dropped his right hand and is currently circling into an opening for a crushing left hook knockout, but Democrats will not throw that punch. Ever. You will never see congressional Russiagate queen Maxine “I’m out to impeach this president” Waters attempt to get Trump impeached with the impeachment case that he has gift wrapped and handed to her by committing war crimes in Syria. You will never see Rep. Jamie “remove Trump from office because of obnoxious tweets” Raskin put together a case for impeachment based on the Trump administration’s unilateral decision to attack the Syrian military, its use of white phosphorus or its relentless slaughter of civilians across the Middle East. You will never see Rachel Maddow or Keith Olbermann rallying the Resistance troops into protest marches over Trump’s bloodbaths in Yemen or Syria. These things will never, ever happen. You will see them focusing on nonsense like Russiagate and mean tweets about Zbigniew Brzezinski’s daughter.

These things will never happen because the Democratic party, as we have discussed before, has become an overwhelmingly neoconservative party, and because the corporate media never misses an opportunity to advocate in favor of US military aggression. We saw this in their shamelessly orgiastic celebration of Trump’s deadly missile strike on a Syrian airfield in April, and we continue to see it in their refusal to unequivocally condemn the senseless military aggression in nations that America never had any business involving itself with in the first place.

This is precisely why I’ve been writing with such venom about the so-called “Resistance”, a title not organically arising from the people but one manufactured in a DC think tank to harness and exploit the healthy inclination toward progressive activism which arose on an organic grassroots level in the Occupy and Bernie Sanders movements. People with more or less healthy impulses, people who claim to want peace, economic justice and social justice, have had those good intentions harnessed by America’s unelected power establishment and geared toward manufacturing support for escalations with Russia and unforgivable corporatist bloodbaths in the Middle East. These deep state parasites have taken something good and healthy in their fellow humans and used the deceit and manipulations of their corporate media propaganda arm to twist those healthy impulses in on themselves and turn them into something sick and evil.

If you are reading this under the mistaken impression that resisting Trump has something to do with the 25th Amendment or investigations into Russian connections, I strongly advise you to begin insistently urging the pundits and politicians you trust and respect to oppose the Trump administration on the basis of war crimes. Push them to put together a case for Trump’s impeachment based on his violations of the Nuremberg charter, the UN charter, and the War Powers Resolution of 1973. Then watch what they do. Not what they say, but what they do. Ignore their words about this and watch their actions. Pay attention when they ignore you or brush you off with a few supportive-sounding words without taking any action. I promise you this is exactly what will happen. You will never, ever see anything remotely like the full-scale mobilization you’ve seen in the Russiagate movement and #TheResistance protests over Trump’s war crimes.

If you try these things and find what I am saying to be true (and you will), please consider the possibility that these people are not your friends. Please consider the possibility that the media you consume which tells you how to perceive world affairs is full of lies and propaganda. Please consider the possibility that a coalition of powerful elites controls your government and uses your country’s immense military might to manipulate world affairs for the purpose of amassing more power. Please consider the possibility of a real resistance replacing the fake one they’ve given you.

  1. Once again an excellent and succinct article – top marks for this reporting and I hope to see it shared far and wide. The useful idiots participating in their ‘pussy hat’ marches or the mindless Antifa antics really would benefit from reading the top knotch analytical reporting in CounterPropa so well done H.A for hiring these top quality journalists.

  2. Trump is an asshole but Pence’s war crimes would be even more frequent and aggressive much like Shillary Clinton. Trump only commits war crimes for praise from the same propagandists who turn on him the second he tries not to be insane, eventually he’s going to figure out getting us all killed is not worth the temporary kind words for his expensive crimes.

  3. Unfortunately, precedent is not on the side of this argument. Every American president since the second world war, with the possible exception of Jimmy Carter, has been guilty of the same things, but most certainly the past four. In fact, while there are many potential impeachment theories that might apply, they’d also apply to most other recent presidents, on a bipartisan basis. Consider the purported Watergate “scandal” by the standards of the past four presidents?

    1. Not even Carter, what with his national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski who unleashed the terrorism we are all threatened by today. It was in Afghanistan, with the mujahideen and his Saudi friend Osama bin Laden. And the old t…d was happy about that. It had worked against the Soviet Union. He didn’t see the problem.
      Neither did Carter.

      The US economy runs on wars, and has since the “lend-lease” of WW2, that made the US weapon manufacturers and all the war-related businesses rich and carries on lining their pockets to this day. Which is why ALL the US presidents after WW2 were/are war criminals. They are picked by those corporations. Different sharks, same pool.
      Eisenhower warned in 1961.

  4. “Corporatist bloodbaths”? Do corporations send employees to kill people in the Middle East? Don’t think so, but I do love the image. I can tolerate some picturesque phrasing adding entertainment value to an excellent opinion piece. I just had the sudden image of Walmart employees armed with M16s instead of pricing label guns.

    I should point out that “impeachable offense”, a term used by almost everyone today, is actually not well defined. An impeachable offense is whatever the House of Representatives decides it is. The authors of the Constitution seem to have left this up to the good judgement (which seems in short supply) of our elected representatives. I conclude this from the phrase describing candidate offensives for impeachment as “high crimes and misdemeanors” which lumps treason and jay-walking into the same bucket.

    1. My understanding is that Blackwater is/was a corporation. Or DynCorp. Or Raytheon. Exon. You name it. The list is long. You have to be a blinkered fool to ignore the business of war when that’s just about all it is at this point. Geez.

  5. This is the acid test. Will they oppose Trump on war crimes? We know the answer already–no. These “parties” are two faces of the same coin. Until the people wake up (if ever) this NWO will grow more and more into a vision of hell.

  6. Repeated warnings of air strike at air field gave the ground forces plenty of time to relocate. War Crimes??? NOT so.

    1. Is Syria a sovereign country? Did we bomb them without provocation? Game, set, match.

      And if you’re going to try to cite the “sarin attack” as provocation, let me first point out that it wasn’t in any way, shape or form an attack against the US. Then let me refer you to this author’s well-documented stories previously published on this site that prove that the chemicals weren’t stockpiled by or intentionally unleashed by Syria.

      Plus, if Tulsi Gabbard’s bill against funding terrorist organizations were passed, the US’s entire operation in Syria would be against our own laws.

  7. After Herr Trump sent in the SEALS to do some butchering in Syria early on, I emailed my 2 Senators and House member, saying they should start impeachment proceedings against Trump for war crimes.

    Never heard back from any of them.

    I’ll go one better: The fraud that is the stock market should of collapsed by now, those TBTF Wall Street Casinos are in worse shape than they were in 2008. Yet no crash.
    And there won’t be one until we have finished off Syria and are bombing Iran.

  8. Kudos for calling out the bullshit. We must keep talking about this in any way possible in order to undermine the corporate media narratives. It’s obviously working since they want to end Net Neutrality.

  9. It takes a nation of specially bred cowards to shit their pants and condone genocide on the basis of a one in twenty five million chance of being a “terror”victim.
