this is where I stand

#FuckTrump #TraitorTrump #TrumpRussia #PutinsBitch

Never have we needed the American people to stand up for the rule of law more than at this time in our history. We must lift up the Constitution.

We must not be afraid to speak the truth when we see it. We can not afford to turn a blind eye to the dismantling of the values in which we have always believed.

When a sitting president takes the side of the enemy of the United States over his own intelligence services, that is treasonous. When that president refuses to enforce sanctions that Congress overwhelmingly passed against that enemy, that is treasonous.

When a president refuses to defend our country, he is not only derelict in his duty, he is a traitor that should be immediately removed from the office he daily dishonors.

When I was nineteen I took an oath to defend my country against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. That oath didn’t have a time limit. Trump needs to be impeached.

This is where I stand. What about you?

 

The Case For Impeachment

Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, a co-author of the Federalist Papers — and an immigrant himself — argued that “high crimes and misdemeanors” could be defined as “abuse or violation of some public trust.” This president has clearly already exceeded these standards. Congress has impeached past presidents for far less.

                                                                                                                                            Tom Steyer, October 18, 2017

There comes a time when it is painfully obvious that the public trust has not only been violated, but abused, so badly that action has to be taken. Trump has clearly, and I would add, even intentionally exceeded any standards required for removal from office. This president was unfit before Russia put him into office, and he has done nothing to redeem himself in the year since.
Instead, he has continued to lie, to mock the Constitution and our rule of law. He has continued to flaunt his power and make a mockery of true American values. His unmitigated greed and hubris knows no limits.
There is a solid case for impeachment of this president. Now, we all need to encourage ALL our representatives to execute their responsibilities and start the proceedings. (And those refusing to do so should pay the maximum penalty at the polls.)
There comes a time when talking is not enough. The time has come for action. #BLOTUS needs to be impeached. He is a traitor, and needs to be treated as such. The time has come to demonstrate our values are not his values.

This is what happens when you have the biggest liar in U.S. as your leader. No one can trust him or us anymore. #BLOTUS is destabilizing the entire world while he flaunts his immorality and ignores the Constitution and all it stands for.

David Letterman on #BLOTUS

I have never been a big fan of David Letterman. But, that said, he nailed it with this comment.

We have never seen a more corrupt leader in the White House. We have never, at least in my lifetime, seen a president  that has demonstrated such incompetence, ignorance and blatant disregard for the Constitution. We have never seen a president that consistently lies, attacks the media, or creates such discord and divisiveness.

And this is on top of all of us realizing the absolute strangle hold that Putin has on the Lord of the Lies. This presidency will go down as the worst in our history, It cannot end soon enough. And, as Letterman stated, it’s time to stand up and demand he be held accountable. Enough is enough. Mueller cannot move fast enough.

 

a short quiz

The #BLOTUS is more than a national embarrassment, or a national disgrace. He is a shameful example of the lowest elements of our society. There’s no need to wonder why our nation is no longer seen as a leader of the free world.

#BLOTUS: a one-man crisis

I can not remember any presidency in my seventy years that has been so dysfunctional, and such a total embarrassment to our country. What other of our nation’s leaders has been so unable to tell the truth? bragged about being able get away with murder? laughed about being a sexual predator? completed ignored the Constitution? wasted so much on vacations so fast? continually attacked the press? could not stop whining?

The real story isn’t the leaks. The real story is that the #BLOTUS is a one-man rolling crisis.  He is frighteningly dangerous to the health, well being, and future of our nation. He is causing great concern, even alarm among our allies and has made the United States a laughingstock around the world.

And the backstory is even worse. His appeal to the lowest common denominator points out the serious, even fatal flaws in our society. Those supporting him are so wedded to his bigotry and clearly racist agenda that they are willing to ignore the truth.

The real story is that this president is a total disaster.
