the art of the deal

Every day, every single day, brings new, fresh and more clear evidence that this man is blatantly and brazenly destroying the rule of law in our country. His criminality, fueled by his greed, racism and unimaginable egotism threatens the foundations of our democracy.

This lying pig needs to have impeachment proceedings against him begin now. The same also holds true for Attorney General Barr and Senate Leader, Mitch McConnell and his wife.

0 Witch Hunts

191 criminal charges.
100’s interviewed.
100 tapes recovered from Cohen.
40 days in jail for Manafort.
35 defendants.
30 days in prison for van der Zwaan.
5 guilty pleas.
1 Russian spy in custody.
1 Putin puppet.
0 witch hunts.

Our “stable genius” might know lots of words, even the best words, as he is fond of telling us. But what he blatantly doesn’t know is the definition of meaning of most of them. As this tweet of Scott Dworkin illustrates, there are no witch hunts.  The proper term for what is happening is called the rule of law.

the message from Helsinki

There can be no misunderstanding concerning Trump’s allegiance to Putin and Russia. He serves the Kremlin. This is the clear message from Helsinki.

I want a President that serves and protects the Constitution and the USA. Trump need to be impeached and indicted for treason. If Republicans continue to ignore the truth and continue to support him they are complicit and need to be prosecuted and removed from office.

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.
