TRUMP LIAR

Donald Trump is a Dictator wanna be who is in a position to make good on his wish by dividing instead of uniting the great citizens of the U.S. He already has his base ignoring his criminal, immoral, and treasonous behavior. They don’t care about his incessant pathological lying, and has them believing that he is the only one telling the truth. He has weakened their faith in our Intelligence Agencies, Justice System, Legislative Branch of Government, and all news media except FOX News. He is fanning the fires of racism. Finally, he is destroying the essence of the Constitution of the United States by ignoring the rule of law and running our great nation with knee-jerk responses instead of careful thought. Trump’s followers stick with him because he is bold, unapologetic, cusses like them, and thinks of women like they are pieces of meat. And yes, there must be a few women that like being thought of in that way. How else do you explain Women For Trump t-shirts? If anybody but Trump grabbed them by the vagina, the guy doing the grabbing would be going to jail.

Now the question is, how do you prevent a dictator from rising to power? Congress must enact laws to protect the American people against lies, deceit, and foreign interference as follows:

A candidate for President must be disqualified if found to be deliberately lying to the electorate, giving misleading information about their platform, or engaging with members of a foreign government within 5 years before and during the campaign for President. Once a candidate is nominated for President by their Party, the Federal Government must vet the nominee. If the nominee does not pass the vet, the runner up must now be vetted, and so on. Adultry with a Porn star when you are married, while immoral, is not illegal or a problem, but paying to keep it quiet so you can become President is a felony. You go directly to jail. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.

Once a President is seated, he is sworn to uphold, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. If he deliberately fails to do his duty on any or all levels, he is in violation of the Constitution. In that scenario, the Constitution mandates that he be Impeached. Trump in currently in violation of the Constitution by ignoring the rule of law, obstructing justice, and ignoring subpoenas. The Legislative Branch of Government has oversight over the President’s Branch of Government. This oversight is mandated by the Constitution. The House of Representative is also ignoring the rule of law by not initiating impeachment. They are “weighing their political options”. In other words, they are trying to keep their jobs and win the Presidency in 2020. The Constitution did not say, don’t impeach if you may lose your job or an election. None of that will matter if we lose our Democracy, empathy, and morality as a nation. If they don’t stop Trump now, they are sending the message that future Presidents can run the country the same way he is doing.  We now live in a country where lying is the norm, our allies are treated with disrespect, our enemies are our best friends, racism is just a nuisance, and Trump is the only one to be trusted. Really!!!! 1. Trump lies on camera all the time. How many times have you seen him lie with a straight face on camera? 2. Did you see him agree with Putin over the CIA about Russian interference with our 2016 elections? 3. How many times did he alienate our allies on camera? 4, How much more air, water, and land pollution can we tolerate? The Paris Climate Accords may have been unfair to the U.S., but who cares about fairness if you can’t breathe the air, drink the water, or grow crops. Still no replacement plan. 5. Trump makes racist tweets and comments. 6. A sampling of Trump ignoring the Rule of Law.

The above six items can only lead to a divided people, chaotic government, and moral decay which ultimately leads to the loss of our freedoms and the fall of our civilization. Is a booming economy, rich people getting richer,  Conservative Judges on the Supreme court, Immigrant bans, and making our new allies Communists worth the destruction of our system of Government and the loss of our freedoms?Republicans don’t want you to vote for Democrats because they are Socialist leaning. Democrats may be leaning toward Socialism, but the Republican President is openly embracing Communist leaders. What’s wrong with this picture? Socialism is an ideal that suggest that all Citizens benefit and contribute equally in the society. Communism is an organization that forces the will of a few over all the Citizens. Neither choice is ideal, but if you had to pick one, Socialism is better than Communism. Of course, we have the best system and it’s called Democracy. Let’s keep it. You know what to do in 2020!!!!

The Declaration of Independence

This means something. No one man can diminish it.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. 

These words found in the Declaration of Independence didn’t say all men except the President are equal. The President is equal under the Constitution of the United States. The following excerpts of the Constitution clearly state this:

THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

ARTICLE 1   SECTION 3

The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, chosen by the Legislature thereof, for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote.

Immediately after they shall be assembled in Consequence of the first Election, they shall be divided as equally as may be into three Classes. The Seats of the Senators of the first Class shall be vacated at the Expiration of the second Year, of the second Class at the Expiration of the fourth Year, and of the third Class at the Expiration of the sixth Year, so that one third may be chosen every second Year; and if Vacancies happen by Resignation, or otherwise, during the Recess of the Legislature of any State, the Executive thereof may make temporary Appointments until the next Meeting of the Legislature, which shall then fill such Vacancies.

No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen.

The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no Vote, unless they be equally divided.

The Senate shall choose their other Officers, and also a President pro tempore, in the Absence of the Vice President, or when he shall exercise the Office of President of the United States.

The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.

Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.

ARTICLE 2   SECTION 4

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

There is considerable debate about what laws, if broken by the President, can he be Impeached for. It’s very simple. The President can be Impeached for any law he breaks that is a Misdemeanor or greater. Some examples are: Obstruction of justice, lying if under oath, violation of campaign finance laws, treason by inadequately defending the Constitution (Russia interfered with our Democracy and Trump did nothing initially), making money because you are President (Emoluments Clause), bribery, income tax evasion, etc. Trump could possibly be guilty of any or all of these laws. I believe if Trump is going to be Impeached, it will be related to his business dealings (money deals or taxes) or obstruction of justice relating to his dealings with Russia. I agree with Trump, proving collusion is less likely.

Now let’s assume the President is Impeached. According to Article 1 Section 3, he can only be discharged from office. Once he is removed from office though, he is no longer the President, and can now be tried in a state or local court of law, convicted, then punished according to the law. This point is clearly stated. I don’t know why lawmakers on the left and the right are confused about this point. Just because these issues don’t have precedence, doesn’t change the words in the Constitution. Everyone is simply overthinking things.

The bottom line is, no one knows what evidence the Special Prosecutor has, but the Constitution guarantees that President Trump is innocent until proven guilty. But make no mistake about it, President Trump is not above the law. We simply must wait until the investigation is over and, if necessary, have an Impeachment hearing. Prosecutors must take a sufficient amount of time to build a case, and even for us lowly civilians, it can sometimes take a long time. Imagine how large this investigation is. President Trump has done business all over the world. Lawyers on both sides knew the investigation was going to take a while at the very beginning. With all the indictments, guilty pleas, and cooperating witnesses, we are close to a conclusion of the investigation. Hold on to you seats, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
