Everything is Based on Lies
I never thought I would say this, but Donald Trump is a traitor. He’s working for himself and not for the benefit and security of this nation. He has betrayed his oath of office and, as I said in my book DONALD TRUMP: Repeal, Replace, Impeach (based on the first 200 days in office), everything he does is based on lies. If provable lies are not a violation of trust with the electorate, then what is?
Let’s review the oath all presidents take: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) 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.” The phrase “faithfully execute” denotes loyalty to the country and the citizens who elected him. “Faithfully” is acting in a manner that is consistent with facts. So, when the President tells a lie to the country’s citizens he has committed a form of perjury. The offense of willfully telling an untruth in a court after having taken an oath or affirmation, is indeed perjury. In a sense, a president is under oath with every action on every day of their term.
Telling lies in the court of public opinion has never mattered to Trump, but what he’s doing now as president is an even larger crime, an action or omission that constitutes an offense that may be prosecuted by the state and is punishable by law. He put his hand on a Bible and said that he would protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. How is colluding with other nations to sway voters in this country protecting and defending? What are we waiting on? Does he have to burn the original Constitution on TV for Americas to come together and rid ourselves of this malevolent person?
Surely, we should never have to put a US President in front of a firing squad, but we certainly must use the provisions of law that give Congress the power to remove a bad President. I hate it when the typical Republican talking point is presented.. “You cannot impeach a president just because you don’t like him.” I want to look the speaker directly into their eyes and ask, “Can you tell me it’s okay for a president to lie to the American people about his desires to hurt other Americans?” Isn’t that a treacherous activity?
This morning (10-4-2019), former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci declared on CNN that the president is “a traitor to the United States and the most unamerican President we’ve had since Andrew Johnson.” For those who enjoy history repeating itself, Andrew Johnson was impeached by the House and narrowly won acquittal in the Senate trial. He was a terrible president that no one liked.
We now have text messages between Kurt Volker, Special Envoy to Ukraine, and officials there that confirm a quid pro quo between the White House and the new President in that country. To get a call, to get a visit invite and to receive military aid, Volodymyr Zelensky, schoolteacher-turned-actor and new President of Ukraine, was being PRESSURED to comply with the wishes of Donald Trump. And we now know, the president of our country was asking for Ukraine to release a statement that they were opening an investigation into Hunter and Joe Biden. The Ukrainian release was written, but didn’t see the light of day until now.
We can thank a loyal American whistleblower for bringing all this to light. And we need to have a united Congress to put this train-wreck-presidency behind us. It’s not erasing an election; it’s combating corruption in our own house. This president is a liar and traitor and he must be removed from office.
It’s time for the President and his family to release their tax returns. They must disclose if they have benefited from this presidency and whether they are beholden to another nation. Congress must pass a law that makes releasing tax returns a prerequisite for running for federal office. We must fortify our country from this ever happening again.
Republicans, this is no longer a joke to be waved away. Trump is a traitor and must be IMPEACHED! If nothing happens now, our democracy is at serious peril!
Read About The Country We Love
The book that tells it like it is…
Gold, God, Guns & Goofballs shows how we’ve wasted our GOLD on bad wars and corruption. While GOD is there for many people as a spiritual enrichment and the provider of glowing feelings, the truth is just praying and believing will not change our major arc. We don’t determine who gets a GUN. We aren’t sure if we have paramilitary groups ready to storm the White House or a White Castle. There is no control of weapons. The GOOFBALLS with the power constantly try to manipulate us into spending more money on bombs and tanks and wars. When all of our institutions are infected with neglect and fall in disrepair, we will only have ourselves to blame. This book is not an antidote for the left or right, it’s an accelerant to move the middle off their collective asses to go do something positive for America.
