LETTERS from Page 7

flict of interest. Trump’s response to accusations, criticism or even requests for information is always the same: deny, lie, cover up, legally stonewall and then launch vicious personal attacks against the media and his accusers. We never hear a convincing case for his innocence. After learning of the Mueller investigation, he said, “This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I’m f—ed.” The man stinks of guilt. It all points towards impeachment. Remember, Trump’s likely treason is one of many impeachable offenses from campaign-finance violations to obstruction of justice to tax fraud to emoluments issues to undermining American democracy to inciting violence against minorities to a closet full of skeletons investigating Congressional investigators are attempting to reveal. Trump hasn’t been “exonerated” of anything; let’s rid our nation of this reckless scoundrel. Paul Dougan/Boulder

Russia aligns with GOP

Russia offers nothing that the GOP hasn’t been fighting for in decades. Voter suppression, caging and gerrymandering are well-established GOP ploys that undercut our democracy, a word that you rarely hear exiting their mouths because they don’t believe in democracy anymore. By asserting that corporations are people, Citizen’s United, a right-wing Supreme Court product, gave corpo-

rations unlimited advantage to influence voters in our elections. Commandeering votes from the courthouses, porches and mailboxes of the aged and unsuspecting are well established and recently exposed GOP crimes to try to overcome the fact that their message is no longer palpable to the youth, minorities and the educated. Cheating them is not a weakness, it is a necessary muscle used to pry wins away from the rising democratic majority. That Russia is willing to jump in and lend a hand squelches no morals that haven’t already been squelched. “God made him president so we must follow and swallow” are comments I don’t swallow from those who have previously claimed that “Our country has lost its moral compass.” Truth is, Vladimir Putin helped make Trump president because the GOP couldn’t do it all on their own and are now finding themselves desperately without a moral compass. That we are sliding into fascism is OK to the GOP as long as whites only are in control. No more messy voting, women’s rights, minority equalities, religious freedoms or gay rights to consider. All gone for good. Yeah, yeah, what could be better?... Freedom and democracy would be much better but not easier as we were told by our forefathers who had seen the worst in the old country then gave us a template and the vision to realize the importance of always fighting to keep freedom and democracy alive.

DANISH PLAN from Page 6

really thought climate change was the existential threat they claim it is, they would be doing everything humanly possible to expedite lithium mining and lithium battery production, even if the mining is going to trash the environment around the mine. And they certainly wouldn’t do anything to interfere with it. If you want to wage war on fossil fuels in order to save the planet, you ought to be adult enough to realize there is going to be some collateral damage and that you are going to have to live with it. C’est la guerre. We also know that American environmentalists are incapable of setting meaningful priorities. Most I

sane people would tell you that saving the planet is more important than saving the desert tortoise, or even saving the desert. Today’s enviros seem to be having trouble with the concept. And we know intuitively that if there is one place in the United States that had to be declared a national sacrifice area in the interest of saving the planet by 2030, it would be the desert region the environmental groups are currently exercised about. It’s called Death Valley for a reason. This opinion column does not necessarily reflect the views of Boulder Weekly. BOULDER WEEKLY
