My Cornell University theme song is Green Day’s Boulevard of Broken Dreams:

I walk a lonely road, the only one that I have ever known, don’t know where it goes, but it’s home to me and I walk alone.

Whenever the Cornell Sun or other media need the non-liberal faculty opinion on campus, there aren’t many choices. So the burden falls on me.

I hope I didn’t trigger anyone with this comment in the Cornell Sun’s article about the impeachment trial, As Senate Tries Trump, Professors Predict Impeachment Outcomes:

As the impeachment of President Donald Trump moves to trial in the Senate, Cornell professors shared their views on the significance of the House charges –– and their predictions for how America’s historic impeachment trial will play out….

But not all professors, however, see the House’s actions as warranted. Prof. William Jacobson, law, sees the impeachment process as an effort to “unwind the 2016 election and to interfere in the 2020 election.”

For Jacobson, impeachment represents a Democratic vendetta against Trump, pointing to the ways in which party members have previously tried to oust the current President. These include attempting to invoke the 25th Amendment, which allows for a process to remove the president outside of impeachment, and encouraging “faithless electors” after the 2016 election, according to Jacobson.

“Since the day Trump was elected, Democrats have vowed to find a way to remove Trump from office,” Jacobson said….

Jacobson anticipates Republican Senators to vote in Trump’s favor.

“Republicans in the Senate recognize the upcoming trial as an attempted political decapitation,” Jacobson said.
