Trump Shows His Major Weakness, Again
Donald J. Trump is clearly the worst president in my lifetime, pushing Richard Nixon out of that insidious position. Once again, his winning any game he is playing is more important then what is good for the country. He creates an environment where he must then boldly act to solve the very problem he created.
Trump lambasted China with tariffs which deeply affected our soy bean farmers in the Midwest. Then, he asked the US taxpayers to help our farmers out of a problem of his own creation. Trump’s actions made the prices of soy beans decrease by 50%, thereby crushing the very people who voted for him. Why wasn’t this better thought out?
He demanded money for a border wall, got $20 billion, then walked away from a grand plan to bond the wall funding with concrete immigration reform. Next, he decided to stonewall Congress and own a shutdown that seriously hurts people. Trump is asking too much of the people who support him. Government agencies, like the IRS, are calling people back to work without pay. What kind of leader is this? How is a worker unessential one day then indispensable the next?
Pelosi’s State of the Union delay letter vs. Trump’s No Fly letter is just one example of the stupid things the Goofballs in Washington do all the time. They must be bored with running the country. Trump can’t make things better, he only makes them worse.
And now we get this report from BuzzFeed that President Donald Trump personally directed his longtime former attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the Moscow Trump Tower project. How many times will we hear the words, “bombshell report” before members of Congress get off their over-fed asses and do something about Trump?
Let’s first reopen the discussion about whether a “sitting President” can be indicted. There is a simple answer here, one that is far above the Department of Justice and the Executive Branch; it’s the very fiber of American Constitutional law. If we truly live in a land of laws, where no man or woman is above the law, then why would a memo that Robert Bork wrote in 2000 keep us from administering justice at the highest level of government? The law must apply to all, and it’s time to test this concept.
Impeachment is the process of cleansing a bad player from one of our three branches of government. It’s not a road well-traveled, but it has been used in the past. The cases against Presidents Andrew Johnson and William Clinton were strong political acts, and they are the only examples of how impeachment has worked in the past. In each case, impeachment proceedings failed to extricate the person from office, but we do have a remedy for a bad actor in the White House. These cases demonstrate that care must be taken to build a foundation of facts and count votes in the Senate before beginning the journey. Nixon would have been convicted, but his party leaders responsibly talked him out of the embarrassment of the ordeal.
By instructing his attorney to lie to Congress, Donald J. Trump has broken the pledge he made during his inaugural swearing-in. “I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” It’s the latest example of Trump’s greatest weakness; he lies and will do anything needed to mollify his ego. His judgment is impaired. If the cabinet and Vice President were worthy of their power, they would evoke the 25th Amendment. Of course, that will never happen because Mike Pence is a man of little loyalty to truth. He is a weakling trudging the earth, pulling the might yoke of Christianity, which he places above the Constitution.
Let’s be clear. The Trump Tower project was very important to Trump and his organization, now run by his older sons. Some experts believe the Trump Tower in Moscow would have netted Trump more than $300 million. To be clear, the elements of any crime include: one has engaged in conduct in circumstances forbidden by the criminal law and while doing so, had a defined state of mind in relation to the prohibited conduct, knew that deed was wrong, proceeded with the conduct in order to create a favorable result for the individual. If he ordered Michael Cohen to lie to Congress to protect the deal, or hide his non-disclosure, Donald Trump is guilty.
As we get closer to a national realization that Trump is bad for America and his words and actions conflict with American interests. Congress must act. If later we find out that Trump had a plan to help Russia, then we would all be complicit in the destruction of important American values. This man is not making America great again; he is slowly tearing our country apart.
We are America. We are better than this. We don’t need Trump. We need an honest, strong and moral leader.
THIS JUST IN….
Representative Nancy Pelosi comments on Donald Trump’s cancelling of the Congressional Delegation trip to war zones:
“In the middle of the night, the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service provided an updated threat assessment detailing that the President announcing this sensitive travel had significantly increased danger to the delegation and to the troops, security, and other officials supporting the trip. This morning, we learned that the Administration had leaked the commercial travel plans as well. In light of the grave threats caused by the President’s action, the delegation has decided to postpone the trip so as not to further endanger our troops and security personnel, or the other travelers on the flights.”
