THE FLAWS OF LAWS

Trump’s Attempted Cover-Up

The latest episode in the continuing story of the demise of the Donald reminds me of the guy who was caught spray painting a harsh message about his ex-girl friend on a town wall. When he found out he was suspected of the wrong-doing, he went out late one night and painted his own name over his girlfriend’s name.

We expect a certain amount of dignity from the President of the United States. We respect the presidency because the office is part of our Constitution and was weaved into our government of Executive, Juridical and Legislative branches. If you love your country, you obey the rules that are the construct of those bodies. You don’t have to agree with everything, but there is a need for law and order in this great land of more than 330 million people.

As the plot against America, perpetrated on our country by a handful of rich megalomaniacs and twisted ideologs, develops into a fuller picture we see the stains, incompetence and misconduct wrapped into the lies of our fake president.

With four of the president’s men either under indictment or pleading guilty, and more than ten members of his inner circle gone within ten months, it’s apparent that this president of ours doesn’t have a clue about what he is doing. But wait, we have some breaking news.

On Saturday afternoon, Trump tweeted, “I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!”

It wasn’t long after that tweet that the internet was alive with the conclusion, using the known timeline, that if Trump knew that Flynn had lied to the FBI before he requested that Comey go easy on Flynn, then he was guilty of obstruction of justice. A first-year law student would know this.  Obstruction of justice — let’s review the meaning of that term.

Obstruction of Justice is the act of willfully interfering with the process of justice and law, especially by influencing, threatening, harming, or impeding a witness, potential witness, juror, or judicial or legal officer, or by furnishing false information in or otherwise impeding an investigation or legal process. If Trump knew Flynn had lied, and he was under investigation for that act of lying, then any attempt by Trump to impede that investigation would be a crime.

Trump’s John Dowd and Nixon’s John Mitchell

But wait, once again we have someone ready to fall on the sword for this president. On Sunday (12-3-2017), the President’s personal lawyer, John Dowd, took responsibility for the tweet that the Donald knew his former security adviser, Michael Flynn, had lied to the FBI before he fired Flynn in February. Wow!

Dowd must make a ton of money for him to lie for his client and risk losing his license to practice law. And if he wasn’t lying, that means that third parties have access to the personal Twitter account of the President of the United States. That is huge and frightening.

The President’s phycological Twitter-vomiting continued on Sunday, “After years of Comey, with the phony and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more), running the FBI, its reputation is in Tatters – worst in History! But fear not, we will bring it back to greatness.” I wonder how this would work if J. Edgar Hoover was running the FBI. Trump would likely be kissing his ring and bowing to Hoover, boa and all.

Trump should be asking why so many people dislike him. Really, could his policies be that bad, or does he just do a terrible job of being president? With all the press he gets, why do so many people hate him? Perhaps our great Orange Leader is suffering from over exposure.

We know that 65 million people voted against the Donald and he can’t seem to get above a 33% approval rating. Could he be simply out of touch with the majority, or totally in denial that most American’s don’t like his policies? Trump supporters can’t seem to answer these points without bringing up the past with some lame defensive comparison to Democrats. History will be written about this President, not his party. FACT: Clinton’s 65,844,954 votes (48.2%) to Trump’s 62,979,879 (46.1%).

Trump has been so focused on the Russian Interference investigation that he missed the real threats to his presidency, CONFLICT OF INTEREST, NEPOTISM and OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE.

If you want to examine the Russia situation, read Bill Moyers incredible web site. Click Here. It provides a full timeline of all things Russian and Trump. When you start at the top and work your way down to the bottom of that endless page, you will realize that Donald Trump has an unhealthy interest in Russia. It’s sad that we need three investigations to uncover the facts. If Trump had released his tax returns, we would know why his protectionism for an adversarial foreign power exists.

If you follow the leaks oozing from Trump’s miniscule brain via social media, you can chart his temperament and tactics. He’s like a 14-year girl plotting the overthrow of her main online popularity challenger. Reading between his tweet-words, Trump is admitting that he fears the FBI. He is terrified of being caught in his lies and is quite sensitive about anyone knowing how much he owes Russian banks. There should be a law about Presidents disclosing their vitals, both financial and physical. I call for an MRI of his brain!

It won’t be long before we will be hearing the mouthpieces of this White House say that the President cannot be charged with obstruction of justice, simply because he is the president. Well, John Dowd needs to go back and read the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Nixon tapes: The Court rejected Nixon’s claim to an “absolute, unqualified Presidential privilege of immunity from judicial process under all circumstances.” It held that a claim of Presidential privilege as to materials subpoenaed for use in a criminal trial cannot override the needs of the judicial process.

Here we are folks. If you are old enough to remember Watergate, you know what will happen next. In a quest for power, a lack of respect for the law and blatant ego-driven behavior of someone truly more interested in himself than our country leads to only one way out, IMPEACHMENT. Stand up and be counted.

LIES AND PROMISES

Trump Sinking into Swamp

The news that blasted across the media today was not surprising for those who have been following the salacious lies and sophomoric antics of an inexperienced, half-baked pumpkin politician who somehow was elected President. Retired General Michael Flynn has been charged with lying to the FBI. Flynn was Trump’s guy and held one of the most important positions in the administration for 24 days. He was privy to all security documents and top-secret information while working with foreign entities. If we were at war, he could be charged with treason.

For those asking what this means, Section 1001 of Title 18 of the United States Code states it’s against the law to knowingly and willfully make false or fraudulent statements, or conceal information, in “any matter within the jurisdiction” of the federal government of the United States. If convicted, one must either pay a fine, or go to jail for up to five years. Would Michael Flynn throw Trump under the bus to avoid five years in prison?

Trump has lied about many things. Trump said that Michael Flynn is a “good guy,” and in the end we will find out that there has been a glorified cover-up by then President-elect, and now President, of the United States. Imagine if the lunch today (12-1-2017) with Rex Tillerson produces a resignation. That would bring the number of people who have left the Trump Administration to more than ten people. What kind of person appoints people who apparently aren’t suited for such important positions? Or, perhaps the person hiring them has very poor judgement.

The Senate is now attempting to pass a tax reform that would add $1 trillion to the debt. What happened to Trump’s promises of reducing the deficit? He lied. Trump told us no one he knows talked to or met with Russians. He lied. The Donald said that he fired James Comey because of his Department of Justice analysis. He lied. Our Great Orange Leader told us he would not benefit from the new tax cuts. He lied. His enterprises will benefit greatly and his children will benefit by $1 billion on his death.

Lies from our President are unacceptable and have legal implications. Trump will learn painfully that he cannot tweet lies, pronounce untruths and foment hate and get away with it in America. We have a broken President, a hurtful and dysfunctional administration and a constitutional crisis here that can only be dealt with through IMPEACHMENT.

Are you brave enough to spread the word? It’s time to write to your representatives in Congress and demand impeachment. You can find their addresses and phone numbers here.

Naiveté, Ignorance or Fear

Trump’s Trip to Asia

It is clear to anyone watching or reading about President Donald Trump that the Russian investigation looms large over him. Trump cannot travel around the world without being asked about his relationship with Russian and, specifically, Vladimir Putin. Our leader answers those questions with confused rhetoric instead of providing a simple, clear and concise response.

Donald Trump said he believed Putin’s response to the question of interference in the US election. Trump failed the test of the great deal maker and helped propel responses from former intelligence chiefs and his own team. Former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan, said that Trump was showing his naiveté, ignorance or fear.

There is some part of our great Orange Leader’s brain that compels him to continue repeating a claim, even after he himself has diluted the assertion with doubt. After Trump makes a statement, experts rush in to help clarify his thoughts. He then finds some wiggle room to get out of the lie or create a misrepresentation. Afterward he returns to the original claim, either in his speech or on Twitter. One could say that he has an inability to learn or a huge capacity for telling lies.

In Japan, Trump said that no one ever received the red-carpet treatment that he got. Clearly, the Donald doesn’t know that an Emperor in Japan must be referred to as “His Majesty the Emperor” and that no foreigner would ever get, in terms of ceremony, what the royalty of the country would receive. His comments show total naiveté. He is not as special as he believes and his comments to the contrary display his gross Ignorance on the world stage.

The notion of our president’s fear is an interesting observation, and one that I also hold. When Trump comes face to face with a person of power, he tries to make them like him. He does this in the name of getting things done but, in the long run, it makes people uneasy. As soon as Trump starts talking, he says downright stupid things about his hosts and their country or company. He’s like an abusive father who must denigrate a child to establish his power. In his mind, Trump believes this is love.

There is a bit of naiveté, ignorance and fear in every one of the Trump supporters. I assume they get most of that from Trump. He never takes time to think, adlibbing his way through life and chuckling inside every time he believes he has gotten away with something. He wears his ignorance like a badge. Our great Orange Leader proudly proclaims to getting his information from watching TV shows and news networks. He says he hates the media, but bases his theories on shoddy reporting and stories that have no basis in facts. He literally, uses “fake news” to govern, and his cult sees nothing wrong with whatever he does. What have we become as a nation?

Trump displays his fear outwardly. It’s easy to spot. He openly kowtows to leaders he’s not supposed to like, and treats our ally leaders with a dose of disregard and disrespect. Trump clearly indicated that he “believed Putin” when he said he didn’t interfere with our elections, and then he attacked those who were critical of him back home. He called former administration people “political hacks.”

But then, truth entered the picture. CIA Director Mike Pompeo said that he stands by US intelligence assessments that Russia meddled in the 2016 election. Trump, backed into a corner, retreated with, “What I said there is that I believe he believes that. And that’s very important for someone to believe. I believe that he feels that he and Russia did not meddle in the election.” And then, in truly Trumpean style, he adds, “As to whether I believe it or not, I am with our agencies, especially as currently constituted with the leadership.”

Some say that Trump is being played by Putin. I have said Trump will be played by anyone who compliments him, genuflects, grovels or kisses his big fat ass. Anyone who can get Trump’s brain chemicals oozing messages of gratification can acquire whatever they want. When confronted, Trump simply changes what he said. When caught in a lie, his plan is simple, decide whether to double-down on the lie or change the words to mean something else. He is truly naïve, ignorant, afraid, and, I would add, delusional.

New Book about Terrorism

One of the most eye-opening stories about terrorism. The famous cable TV talk show host, Jonas Bronck, leaves New York on his quest to find truth. He finds himself in the middle of terror and personal torment in the name of journalism. He once again asks, If God Could Cry, would he be crying for us, or with us?

SWEET HOME ALABAMA

Trump’s Next Scapegoat

I’m sure that Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, our current Attorney General, has an honest love for America and the laws of this land. We know that Sessions has a relationship with Steve Bannon and that may have been the motivation for him to come out early as an endorser of Donald J. Trump. The phrase, “Be careful what you wish for” comes to mind with what has transpired between the President and his Attorney General.

Jeff’s past comments came back to haunt him and kept him from advancing several times in his career. Once he teamed with Trump, however, making positive references to the KKK didn’t matter to our great Orange Leader. Just as Anita Hill’s testimony didn’t stop the appointment of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, we seem to be losing the importance of truth. Telling the truth used to mean something.

On radio station WMAL in Washington, DC last night (11-2-2017), Trump aired his frustration with not being involved in the Justice Department, “…you know the saddest thing is that because I’m the President of the United States, I am not supposed to be involved with the Justice Department. I’m not supposed to be involved with the FBI. I’m not supposed to be doing the kind of things that I would love to be doing. And I’m very frustrated by it.”

This pattern is getting so predictable. Again, he hits back on Twitter: “At some point the Justice Department, and the FBI, must do what is right and proper. The American public deserves it!”

And then, just as Trump and his first lady got onto to Air Force One for his big Asia trip, he made this remark, “I am really not involved with the Justice Department. I’d like to let it run itself. But honestly, they should be looking at the Democrats. A lot of people are disappointed in the Justice Department, including me. Imagine if your boss said those things about your department in a business. One would be polishing their resume.

Just as the Senate and House investigative bodies are asking themselves if Sessions, in a sense the top cop in the land, lied under oath, the President, with the least amount of grey matter involved, thinks he getting to the crux of the matter. He’s wanting to control the courts and Justice, like a third-world dictator.

President Trump believes that all this Russia stuff is a “ruse” or a “hoax” as he calls it. We all know that Russia did something during the election, that is a clear fact. Trump’s denial that this even happened is absurd. When some disgruntled Twitter worker cut off his Twitter account for 11 minutes yesterday, the world didn’t end. Maybe he denies that happened.

Part of what a pathological liar does is repeat an untruth over and over until he believes it and with it, those around him, give in to the lie and accept the propaganda as truth.

Trump is a little boy. He never developed a psychological hardened shell to protect himself from critical comments. Maybe his mother spoiled him. As a kid, his frontal cortex never developed properly. It’s clearly devoid of any logic, restraint and reason. And this not good for the United States of America.

Trump would like to end the collusion investigation by firing everyone involved, but he cannot. The reason he is targeting Jeff Sessions isn’t because of his diminutive statue or southern drawl, it’s because he showed up Trump.

Trump is angry right now and is using aggression to help soothe his broken ego. Yes, folks, this is what’s really happening.

When George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, it wasn’t just the lie, it was the plea deal that disclosed some facts – which has been verified but others at the meeting that took place on March 31, 2016. It was a “national security” meeting in Washington, D.C. with many “volunteers” who were working on the campaign. Everyone seems to think this meeting was a nonentity. No one seems to remember what was said. I guess they didn’t take notes. I always thought “national security” was important to the Donald.

In that meeting, it has been reported that Papadopoulos brought up the opportunity to meet with Russians, and conceivably, Vladimir Putin. Trump has been described as open to the meeting, but Jeff Sessions vetoed the idea.

Imagine, someone like Trump, feeling a bit insecure around what he thought were top-notch security people, only to lose the power of the meeting. Sessions made the decision, not Trump. Jeff Sessions represents the DOJ and Justice is in charge of the people who are investigating his administration for any dastardly deeds done against the republic.

In the end, Jeff Sessions will be forced to do more than recuse himself, he will be asked to resign. Trump may think that getting people out of the way will take the pressure off him and his family, but we go back to that old phrase, “Be careful what you wish for, Mr. President.”  Those who come after Jeff Sessions won’t have taken the loyalty test and aren’t going to ruin their reputations, as so many have already, to protect a man who seems to worry more about himself than whether Bump Stocks are banned or Puerto Rico has electricity. And that is truly, sad!

Low-Level Volunteer

Trump Thinks He’s a Lawyer

Donald Trump constantly acts in ways that would give even the youngest lawyer heartburn. He attempts to litigate and impeach people before he knows all the facts. This jumping of the gun might be his way to secure a win, but it disqualifies him as a credible contestant.

One of the things I learned early in business was emotional reactions to things and events must be confined. When attempting to sue someone for what I thought was wrong-doing, I blasted off what I thought was a stern letter laced with sarcasm and creativity.

When the letter was attached to the response from the other side’s law firm, I was accused of being “cavalier.” My offhandedness, it was explained, would be used against me in court. Trying to understand this, I asked, “Why is that bad?” And my thoughtful lawyer explained, “You come off as arrogant. Most judges and juries usually side against people who are arrogant.” Lesson learned.

This week, we had two top campaign officials indicted on money laundering and conspiracy against the Unites States. We also had one person, who the United States District Court for the District of Columbia calls a foreign policy advisor to the Donald J. Trump campaign, plead guilty to charges of false statements to the FBI.

The Donald, with no restraint, attempted to handle this bad situation as if he was running a TV show, rather than legally managing a major scandal in his administration.

This morning (10-31-2017), the President of the United States tweeted, “The Fake News is working overtime. As Paul Manafort’s lawyer said, there was “no collusion” and events mentioned took place long before he came to the campaign. Few people knew the young, low level volunteer named George, who has already proven to be a liar. Check the DEMS!” Aside from the over use of ellipses, exclamation points and missing punctuation, Trump is indeed being arrogant and cavalier.

Words seem to have different meanings for our great Orange Leader. Collusion, a word he always spells correctly, is a secret agreement or cooperation between two or more people, especially for an illegal or deceitful purpose. You know, like acting in collusion with the enemy. That is more like treason. Donald Trump is a deceitful human being.

It’s interesting how Trump uses the term “young” in a disparaging way when talking about someone who seems to be a problem for him, but never uses that when talking about his son-in-law and daughter, who I guess are high-level volunteers. Allegedly, they don’t take paychecks from the government.

The leader of the free world, in the most arrogant way, has no problem saying that someone is “already proven to be a liar.”  Of course, anyone convicted of lying to the FBI is a liar, which is why they must arrange a plea deal. But the Donald didn’t bother to read the statement of offense. The feds are claiming that his actions impeded the investigation into the Russian government’s interference in the 2016 election.

Okay, that would mean that someone from the campaign had contact with the Russians. This is something Trump, already proven to be a liar, has denied from the beginning. Papadopoulos’ plea proves that there was communication and the nature of those emails and discussions fall into the category of deceitful purpose.

The people involved in this caper surely know who the “overseas professor” might be and, of course, the identity of the “high-ranking campaign official” the complaint lists as the person Papadopoulos was talking to inside Trump-world.

On or about May 21, 2016, George P. emailed that “high-ranking campaign official” with the subject line, “REQUEST FROM RUSSIA TO MEET MR. TRUMP.” (I added the caps). Now, within the scope of arrogance and high-handedness, this also stacks up as blatantly stupid. With Trump and his minions claiming that the Russia-Trump scenario is a hoax with false narrative launched by the cunning Democrats, the name Russia sure shows up a lot in the cross-talk of the campaign. They seem to have been obsessing on Russia before obsessing on Russia was the fashion.

On October 5, 2017, George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to these charges and part of that deal means he will get no more than six months in jail, rather than five years. The fines will also be reduced. The court will determine his sentence, but the court is not bound by the plea agreement or the sentencing guidelines. Yes, the court has the final decision Mr. Trump. This is the way America works.

OF NOTE: Something was hand-written into the agreement. Papadopoulos cannot use the Freedom of Information Act to gain access to documents (this part was written in) “for the duration of the Special Counsel’s investigation.” If Trump fires Mueller, George would be able to write a tell-all book about what happened.

In the final analysis, someone who sat with Trump, advised Trump and was called an advisor by Trump himself, willfully and knowingly made a material false, fictitious and fraudulent statement to agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I guess the word, “Fake” is not a legal term.

Some call this the new beginning and one more crack in the dam of deceit, distraction and obstruction. The name Papadopoulos will be haunting President Pumpkin for more than just this Halloween. One person’s trick, is another person’s treat. Mueller knows what he is doing and we will eventually get to the very bottom of this horrific White House, which 61% of America is already booing.

SPECIAL COUNSEL LANDS FISH

Trump’s Denials Seem So Nixon-like

There have been moments in time when corruption bubbles up from the swamp and people’s reputations become soiled forever. The Russian Probe has produced two arrests, but what else looms in the future?

In the past, we had the Teapot Dome Scandal, a bribery incident from 1921 to 1922, during President Warren G. Harding’s administration. Secretary of the Interior Albert Bacon Fall did a deal for Navy petroleum reserves at Teapot Dome in Wyoming and two locations in California for private oil companies at low rates without competitive bidding.

This would be like someone giving a $300 million no-bid contract to a new company with only two employees located in the state of the Secretary of the Interior to repair the electrical grid in Puerto Rico. While the headlines screamed corruption, Secretary Zinke attacked the “dishonest media” for asking questions about a shady Whitefish Energy contract. Really? The company is based in the same small town that Ryan Zinke calls home and we are to believe there wasn’t anything fishy?

We had Watergate, which Richard Nixon claimed was a “witch-hunt” – does that sound familiar? That scandal was described by the White House as a third-rate burglary, but morphed into the reality that the President of the United States was involved in a cover-up. Nixon was forced to resign by his own party days before he was to be impeached.

Then we had the Iran-Contra Affair that occurred during the Ronald Reagan administration. This was a complicated scheme to supply weapons to Iran, which then was an enemy of the US, in hopes of securing the release of American hostages held in Lebanon by Hezbollah terrorists loyal to the Ayatollah Khomeini, Iran’s leader. Reagan’s men then took millions of dollars from the weapons sale and routed them, along with guns, to the right-wing “Contra” guerrillas in Nicaragua. In 1986, Lebanese magazine Ash-Shiraa published a series of articles that exposed the weapons-for-hostages deal. I guess they were the “dishonesty media.”

There were almost a dozen people charged for their involvement in Iran-Contra, from the Secretary of Defense, the National Security Adviser, Secretary of State people to CIA personnel. All were convicted for their involvement or perjury. They were all pardoned by George H.W. Bush. And this is the way our government works.

Today, the former manager of Donald Trump’s campaign, Paul Manafort, and his associate, Rick Gates, have been charged with a 12-count indictment that says they conspired to defraud the United States with money laundering activities, illegal tax schemes and foreign lobbying deeds. In short, they had more than $75 million flow through offshore accounts and managed to, according the indictment, launder $21 million so far with their schemes.

And this just in, according to the Washington Post: “Former Trump foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty earlier this month to making a false statement to FBI investigators who asked about his contacts with a foreigner connected to Russian officials, and the agreement was unsealed Monday (10-30-2017).” So, there were contacts with Russians during the campaign. FACT.

The good news for Trump is neither his campaign nor the administration was mentioned in this indictment. Most experts believe that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, III has only made his first move and people around Trump should take any request for information very seriously. And, oh yeah, don’t lie.

For those people who have a great desire for impeachment, you should focus on how the White House reacts to these charges. Donald Trump, who says he knows more than lawyers, continually distances himself from Manafort and over-amplifies the distractions. His morning tweet says it all, “Sorry, but this is years ago, before Paul Manafort was part of the Trump campaign. But why aren’t Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus????? …Also, there is NO COLLUSION!”

Ty Cobb and his murder of attorneys have taken the bull by the horn and are attempting to spin this Mueller thing away from Donald Trump. But in the end, no one controls Trump and that will be his downfall. If he is the only person to really know, then knowing anything about these crimes is a crime itself.

Today is not the end, it is only beginning. At worst, Trump is just like all those other scandal makers in the White House. Deny involvement, blame someone else, and if someone took some pain for you, pardon them. For a “law and order” President, the Donald seems to have no respect for law.

For now, we know, at least, the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump is an extremely poor judge of character.

MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS

Trump Isn’t the Only Rich Person in America

When someone boasts about an outrageous thing, I always ask, “Are you willing to put your money where your mouth is?” This often challenges that person’s viewpoint. Some people actually do put their money behind causes and claims.

Enter billionaire and environmentalist Tom Steyer who, according to his PR blitz this weekend, is willing to spend $10 million of his own money to call for the impeachment of Donald J. Trump. His not-so-simple goal to oust Trump from office is based on Steyer’s view that the Donald has gotten us close to a nuclear war, obstructed justice and threatened the shutdown of news organizations. But he doesn’t stop there.

Steyer has a website where you can sign up, although, I’m not sure what I signed up for? If you want to take a look, it’s here, or https://www.needtoimpeach.com/ for those with your links turned off. Tom posted his letter of 10-18-2017, so his missive is fleshly minted.

In Tom Steyer’s official statement, he tells us that, “This is not a time for patience — Donald Trump is not fit for office.” He goes on to charge that Trump is exploiting the office of the Presidency for his personal gain, and that his decision to pull out of the Paris climate accords proves he will never be a good president. Tom goes so far to say that Donald Trump is a “clear and present danger to the United States of America.”

Steyer lists things like losing his own party’s faith, holding immigrant children hostage (his action on DACA) and sabotaging the ACA, as reasons for dumping the current President. He adds that the President’s poor response to natural disasters is more proof of his inadequacy in leadership.

He quotes the Constitutional expert Noah Feldman, who Mr. Steyer says has already laid out clear legal and historical foundation for impeachment. Quoting Alexander Hamilton’s argument that “high crimes and misdemeanors” could be defined as “abuse or violation of some public trust.” Good one, Tom.

I sent Tom Steyer a message this weekend suggesting that his organization buy a bunch of my DONALD TRUMP: Repeal, Replace, Impeach books and send one to each congressperson in Washington. After all, we tracked Trump in his first 200 days and, contained therein, are many points of why Trump should be removed from office.

The need to impeach Donald Trump is self-evident. He is a destructive, uncaring human being who doesn’t have the emotional maturity to deal with most of his responsibilities. We will eventually learn that Trump has major ties to Russia and is beholding to Russian bankers and the political power structure there.

We will also learn that Trump has lied about everything and speaks untruth any time he feels challenged by anyone. Trump is indeed afraid of what is in his income tax returns, thus his lack of transparency. If you could follow the money, you would see that Trump has too many ties to NOT be guilty of violating the Emolumants Clause of the constitution. If we let this great Orange Leader get away with milking money out of the Treasury, we are no better than Russia. That is exactly how Putin got so rich.

Trump is an immoral man who conned the church and evangelicals and used them. He convinced them that he can help save Christianity. I’m not sure why Christianity needs to be saved. I thought it was baked into the concept of a savior driven religion. Our President certainly does little for those of the Jewish faith. He seems to hate Muslims and doesn’t even address the atheists and agnostics. He is certainly not a president for all of America.

With his quest to de-Obama-ize America, Trump hurts people and he will, with the help of his buddy Bannon, eventually destroy the Republican party. This notion that the Trump-Republican tax plan is going to help the middle class is horseshit. The attitude from people like Paul Ryan is, “Let them eat cake” and cast out those who those to try to stop the top 1% from benefiting from no regulations, no taxes, no banking laws, no environmental restrictions and a political dogma that, in the end, will make America less great. We’ll get more poverty, more crime and more guns.

If the people in Congress don’t act now, more billionaires will come to the aid of Tom Steyer and start to water the seed of discontent among the rich and powerful. Without the stock market as a cushion, Trump has done nothing but vomit on the Constitution and piss on the Bill of Rights. I, for one, want to be counted as someone who warned you, America. The stock market is a Ponzi-scheme.

All the Democrats will vote for impeachment, and more and more Republicans would do the same.  The writing is on the wall. And it’s not Trump’s wall, it’s the wall standing between them and their future employment in Washington. Will they ever put their money where their common values are? We’ve had many parts of the Constitution tested in our 241 years as a nation, now it’s time to see if impeachment even works. I mean, let’s see if we can actually convict a sitting President and remove him from office. Hey, if you don’t use it, you could lose it.

It’s time to get rid of this mean, thoughtless old fool who is taking our great country down. If 62% of America can rise up and take their country back, we can all rest a little easier at night. And I would put my money where my mouth is. How much does it cost to impeach a president? Where can I make a donation?

CORKER AND THE CHAOS

Trump Has No Discipline

All those people who predicted that Donald Trump would not be fit to be president, were right. And all those people who sit back and say nothing about the risk Trump poses to America should be ashamed of themselves. Bob Corker, the junior United States Senator from Tennessee, has been outspoken about the politics, people and policies of this White House. And for his honesty, he is now the target of a substantial tweet campaign by the Presidential bully.

This was the President of the United States on Twitter this weekend: “Senator Bob Corker ‘begged’ me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee. I said ‘NO’ and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement). He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said ‘NO THANKS.’ He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal! Hence, I would fully expect Corker to be a negative voice and stand in the way of our great agenda. Didn’t have the guts to run!”

There are many lies and a few exaggerations in his words, but the Donald doesn’t care if anyone knows he’s lying. Trump has weaponized lies throughout his career, and becoming President has not changed his modus operandi. Bob Corker would have made a great Vice President, one who wouldn’t go along with being played like a puppet by the Commander and Chief. The stunt at Lucas Oil Stadium by Mike Pence wasted tons of jet fuel and two perfectly good seats. Spineless Pence really couldn’t be in the stadium with protesters? What a wimp.

While Trump and Pence orchestrated this trick to get NFL protests back into the news, the real focus should have been on what Bob Corker was saying in his tweets over the weekend: “It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.” And the New York Times caught up with Corker to get some additional thoughts: “Senator Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, charged in an interview on Sunday (10-8-2017) that President Trump was treating his office like ‘a reality show,’ with reckless threats toward other countries that could set the nation ‘on the path to World War III.’”

When defending Rex Tillerson and the other adults in the administration, Jim Mattis and John Kelly, Corker said those people help separate our country from chaos. And that brings us to most important part of this article.

Why does this President create chaos? Why would someone with so many important priorities, policies and legislative agendas on the line waste his few brain cells on this nonsense?

There is a little quoted statement by Richard Nixon that fits here: “Do you want to make a point or do you want to make a change? Do you want to get something off your chest, or do you want to get something done?” Trump is a lot like Nixon, only not as smart.

Trump is beyond tone-deaf. He psychologically vomits so much that we clearly see his disturbing mental makeup. His staff, his cabinet and his Vice President have all chugged the Kool-Aid and will back him on whatever he says or does, no matter how extreme or ridiculous. Will the Generals? Will the Congress? And, most importantly, will the Supreme Court?

Why do we want a President who spends so much energy on the NFL, rather than focusing on the domestic and global threats? Donald Trump is a dinosaur and we all know what happened to that species. He moves too slowly on vital issues and is distracted by dissent from the least important people. Critical remarks and entertainment control his judgement and lead to the on-going disorder and bedlam. This is more than embarrassing, it’s downright dangerous.

We should read Corker’s words again, “…could set the nation on the path to World War III.” Is this what we want? Trump must go, even at the risk of having a totally weak-willed white guy from Indiana in the Oval Office.


TRUMP: LOCKED AND LOADED

Amped Up Loose Canon

During an October 25, 2016 interview, Donald Trump said that Hillary Clinton’s policies as president would lead to World War III, adding that he believed that the Democratic nominee would draw the US into armed confrontation with Russia, Syria and Iran. Nowhere in his pronouncement did he mention the country of North Korea, the country that Obama told him would be his biggest problem.

His warning about “fire and fury” was almost like a prophecy-come-true. He warned us that Clinton would get us into war, when in fact, it was his own dream to get us into war. This is just more of his maniacal way of thinking. Or, as some might say, his lack of tapping into his logical frontal cortex and permitting his over-ripe amygdala to do all the talking. Pure bully.

And now this morning (8-11-2017) Trump tweeted, “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!” If Donald Trump thinks he knows more than the generals, then let’s see what he knows. For sure, he knows how to produce FEAR.

The Donald’s early morning tweet was motivated, according to CNN, by North Korea’s statement, “Trump is driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of nuclear war.” What Trump fails to understand is the North Koreans are making a “legal” statement to present a case to the world court in the future. If need be, they will present a case that he was, in fact, the aggressor.

Even though the United Nations Security Council voted 15 to 0 on sanctions against North Korea, Trump has no patience to operate in a diplomatic world. He wants all the “nonsense” to stop now. Most experts will tell you that sanctions are a long-term fix for disobedience. There is no quick-fix for sovereign freedoms and actions for self-protection. Now that Trump has threatened North Korea, we are in the stand-off mode. Where are Jack and Bobby Kennedy when we need them?

In most likelihood, if Kim Jong Un will do what he says he will, with four missiles fired over Japan and into the sea near Guam, our great Orange Leader will then have to do something. He has painted himself into a corner. Most aggressions he might employ would kill people. We assume that Donald Trump has never knowingly killed anyone and this challenge is far greater than anything he has encountered in his 71-years on the planet. If “sticking up for America” means killing hundreds of thousands of people, then all who said he does not have the temperament to be President were sadly accurate.

It’s not only the mixed messages, but the fact that Trump is already at war with his own cabinet, the Congress and the courts. When a total idiot like Sebastian Gorka, who the taxpayers fund, said that Rex Tillerson doesn’t have right to talk about the military, that is a problem. The State Department ‘s Heather Nauert even pushed back against Gorka’s assertion that it was “nonsensical” for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to speak on military matters. Nauert commented about Rex Tillerson, “He’s a Cabinet secretary. He’s fourth in line to the presidency. He carries a big stick.” A surrogate talking-head, like Gorka, is totally out of line critiquing a cabinet member. He should be removed from the White House immediately. Major Trump administration problem.

Trump finds time to battle with Mitch McConnell, the majority leader of the Senate, rather than keeping the country posted on his plans and explaining how we are safe and that he has some strategy to eliminate this problem in Asia.

When knowledgeable people are saying that Trump is making matters worse, he feels the need to shout. Instead of sucking up the criticism and focusing on the task at hand, Trump choses to battle everyone. He seems more eager to pick a fight than find a solution.

He used a telling phrase yesterday. The Donald was asked if his warning to North Korea was a dare, his response was, “It’s not a dare. It’s a statement. Has nothing to do with dare. That’s a statement. He’s not going to go around threatening Guam and he’s not going to threaten the United States and he’s not going to threaten Japan, and he’s not going to threaten South Korea. No, that’s not a dare, as you say. That is a statement of fact.”

Once again, our President took the bait based on a crafty reporter’s question. Trump used the same word four times in his statement. That is what I call the implication of the opposite. When you emphasize something with repetition, it becomes what is remembered most. So, maybe it is a “dare” and war is just another game this man thinks he wants to play.

No one in their right mind wants war. Trump complains about how no one has ever done anything about the crazy kid in North Korea. Well, Mr. President, I hate to remind you, but your first plan was to get Russia and/or China to take care of the matter. How did that turn out? So now you say you want to go it alone and get the job done. But what does getting the job done look like?

If Harry Truman and Douglas MacArthur were alive today, what would they say? Harry Truman would tell Trump to back off and attempt to find some diplomatic solution and while doing it, “shut your damn pie-hole.” But even Harry Truman, if tested, would’ve had no problem dropping an atomic bomb on North Korea. In fact, he dropped two of them on Japan. He claimed use of the nuclear option probably saved one million American lives.

If MacArthur was to be asked for his two-cents worth, he would loudly say, “Take all the land north of the 38th parallel; liberate the North and unite the country.” After all, that was want he wanted to do in 1951. He was so hell-bent on defeating the North he would have sacrificed one million lives to do it. Truman fired MacArthur. The General was never elected President and, in fact, lost his case for vindication in Congress. Clearly, MacArthur did not have the temperament to be president.

In the end, Trump will be seen on the world stage as the lunatic he really is and America will remain divided, as it was during the Vietnam war. There will be those people, the “hawks”, who will get behind the war-minded president, while the “doves” will be protesting in the street. All those things Donald Trump said about our stupid leaders who wasted all that money on wars will demonstrate how much a novice Trump is in this role and how hypocritical his words and actions are.

He would rather be the big guy screaming at everyone and plunging the world into war than ever to be criticized. We will see our 401Ks go down the drain and the economy will once again be as unstable as our leader. Did we pick the right person for president? Only time will tell, Donald.
