Mildly Nauseous


For Whom The bell Tolls



“On March 23, 1933, the newly elected members of the German Parliament (the Reichstag) met in the Kroll Opera House in Berlin to consider passing Hitler’s Enabling Act. It was officially called the ‘Law for Removing the Distress of the People and the Reich.’ If passed, it would effectively mean the end of democracy in Germany and establish the legal dictatorship of Adolf Hitler.”


My husband David predicted, several weeks ago, that  FBI Director James Comey would be fired by the President for his participation in the Russian investigation. I, on the other hand, did not hear Mr. Comey’s death knell until the third of May.

During the Senate hearing on that day, Mr. Comey made the statement, “It makes me mildly nauseous to think that we might have had some impact on the election”. This remark was probably a major affront to the President’s delicate sensibilities and crystallized the idea that Mr. Comey was not playing on the President’s team anymore.

A week later, when the President fired the FBI Director, he apparently believed that this action would bring an end to the ongoing Russian investigation. This abuse of power by the President, to obstruct justice, is an impeachable offence.

Unfortunately, the Republicans, blinded by the power of having the majority in both houses and the Presidency, are shirking their responsibilities to the American people and undermining our Democracy by allowing the President to continue on his present course unobstructed. Their inaction is equal to the Reichstag passing of the Enabling Act.

Regrettably, if the Republicans continue to ignore the President’s disregard for our Constitution and the rule of law, the next death knell we will hear, like the Germans, will be the end of our democracy.
