America is Dead, we live in the kingdom of Trump

Image result for Burning reichstag"

Burning the Reichstag 1933


The Republicans of U.S.Senate have united and marched the Republic off the cliff and into the world of fascist dictatorship. Should  there be  any doubt  that this  is the case consider:  

(1) The Senate just voted totally along party lines  to forgo a real trial eve though the House met it's constitutional mandate to require a trial. WE see in this the Repuboicans will do anything Trup tells them do do.

(2) Trump really does believe the constitution gives him unlimited power.

(3) Can there be any doubt he believes he's above the law? Clearly the Republican senators believe he's above the law.

Let's look at the the first step in Trump's power play advancing notions of unlimited power, Trump has been documented making several statements to this effect: "President Donald Trump on Tuesday inaccurately suggested the Constitution gives him the power to do 'whatever he wants' as president...While criticizing the former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election interference, Trump said, 'Then I have an Article 2, where I have the right to do whatever I want as president.'"[1] There is a much more through list in audio were many more of Trump's statements are recorded from  el presidente  Himself. The issues are discussed by John Iadarola and Brett Erlich. [2]

Of course Trump is way off base; That very section of the constitution (article II section 2) Limits the President's power by defining it and setting it in checks and balances.  One such check is impeachment which is spelled out in that very section,[3] There is also the oath of office: "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." He swore to defend the constitution but he subverted the constitution by, among other things, scraping the impeachment trial,which is prescribed in the constitution. The house voted to impeach so they had to have a trail. But instead they had a coronation. This is very serious, the Republicans derailed justice they turned constitutional mandate for justice into  joke.

According to one version of Christian theology, St. Augustine no less: St. Augustine (354-430), "in Book IV of The City of God, relates the story about the pirate who had been seized and brought before Alexander the Great. The cheeky pirate asks Alexander what is the real difference between a pirate and an emperor apart from the scale of action."[4]

The actual quote:

Justice being taken away, then, what are kingdoms but great robberies? For what are robberies themselves, but little kingdoms? The band itself is made up of men; it is ruled by the authority of a prince, it is knit together by the pact of the confederacy; the booty is divided by the law agreed on. If, by the admittance of abandoned men, this evil increases to such a degree that it holds places, fixes abodes, takes possession of cities, and subdues peoples, it assumes the more plainly the name of a kingdom, because the reality is now manifestly conferred on it, not by the removal of covetousness, but by the addition of impunity. Indeed, that was an apt and true reply which was given to Alexander the Great by a pirate who had been seized. For when that king had asked the man what he meant by keeping hostile possession of the sea, he answered with bold pride, “What thou meanest by seizing the whole earth; but because I do it with a petty ship, I am called a robber, whilst thou who dost it with a great fleet art styled emperor[5]
That is what the Trump administration, is a criminal enterprise. Think about it, He's violated the  Emoluments clause in numerous ways (such as holding important meetings with foreign dignitaries at venues from which he profits), His daughter getting trademarks from China all the time [6] so on. Trump is so detached from reality there surely must be a group of people somewhere who are really  running things so it is an organized gang.

The one last ray of hope still shining: we must go all out to make sure the Republicans don't win the elections, . Take back the Senate, hang on to the house,take back back the white house.

Dude, shut your ass hole. All that we are allowed to hear every day on the news is the LEFT! You guys just want to impose your stupid globalist schemes and tax everybody with taxes they can't afford and impose your global totalitarian state. You guys can't appreciate anything good that Trump has done for the economy just because he is a republican.

I have allowed this comment in order to refute it.

This is clearly not the case It; something right wingers say all the time but they Just don't think it Through. The media is ran by advertising. They make their money by selling time and space (for print media) to companies with money who want to advertise, they are never going to pitch a true socialist agenda.There are plenty of right wing media outlets. Most local news is very conservative and of course there is always Fox.

In my younger days I was the local contract for a group called "FAIR" which sought to do for the left what AIM does for the right. I know about the media.both sides make the same compliants about media because the media is really on the side of making money.

what a globalist? what is my globalist perspective? I think that's a catch phrase for anyone who doesn't blindly follow their demagogue.

You guys can't appreciate anything good that Trump has done for the economy just because he is a republican.

Trump did not cause the good encomium. It's the a tend that started with Obama when he saved us from economic collapse. In 2007 the Bush administration started saying we were on the edge of economic collapse, Senator Dodd was one of the major voices (he's Republican)Obama took steps to halt the crisis when he first got into office.

The economy is not all that good either. Trump has done nothing good. Still waiting for a Repub to show me one thing he's done

oops Dodd was a dem. sorry. Hi father was a Repub.

Can the real Constitution be restored? Probably not. Too many Americans depend on government money under programs the Constitution doesn't authorize, and money talks with an eloquence Shakespeare could only envy. Ignorant people don't understand The Federalist Papers, but they understand government checks with their names on them.

It is highly stupid to think people welfare are lazy and rich and having a great time,you are an ass. you have no understanding of the facts.The idea that the constitution doesn't allow welfare is asinine. It doesn't a an idiot to own an arsenal of aromatic weapons, That is not a we regulated militia.

Joseph Hinman (Metacrock) said...

what is yiour little childish mythology of the real constitution? you mean the constitutions as read b your misconceived bigotry?

Your ignorance apparently knows no bounds. Welfare is un-Constitutionl, which anyone who has actually studied the Constitution and its history would know. Additionally, according to the ideology of the time it was written, the military was any man who could carry a weapon and fight an enemy, which would include young men in their mid-teens. You need to quit listening to CNN and MSNBC and all the leftist professors and Demokrat politicians and actually do some personal research.

The Left hates independence. What do automobiles, guns, and home-schooling all have in common that makes the liberals hate them? All these things reduce individual dependence on the government and on the grandiose schemes for other people's lives created by liberals and imposed by government.

By "study" you mean anyone indoctrinated in your little right wing stupidity,the very idea is preposterous! you clearly have no real education.

That is lie but even if we take it as fact that doesn't justify your little right wing gun addiction, there is no way you can make a single Neanderthal illiterate gunnut like you into a well regulated abnormality himself. Stupid, you sot. it doesn't say guns to solders it saysin a well regulated militia,

you are a cretin, I know it;s hard for those pf limited mentality to understand to understand how cars and guns can be dangerous,who says liberals are opposed to home schooling? right wing propagate to make you hate more.

It's just too bad that Trump doesn't act in every case how you might expect him to act. But you, in your hatred and corruption, insist that his refusal to respond to this particular question reveals to you what you need and want it to reveal. That is, it's another of your personal problems.

But what if he was involved with someone who had an abortion? Does that suggest he was in any way personally involved with that evil choice? Could it not also mean that the abortion took place before his involvement with the person? Not to your sick, deceitful mind.

I'm aware of his shortcomings as a man and as a president. As to the latter, he has proven his shortcomings are more than displaced by his skill and achievement. You know this and you don't care because you're into brutality because you're too corrupt and given over to your evil to change for the better.

You're sick in the soul...assuming you have one...as well as in the head.

Listen you are totally unaware of what is happening in the world today you are living in your own little bubble supported by Trump lies and propaganda. You don't want to see truth Look at the way you try to dismiss the facts by sledging they are my personal problems. You say that because you have heard opinion leads tell you that,you are regurgitating propaganda.

But you, in your hatred and corruption, insist that his refusal to respond to this particular question reveals to you what you need and want it to reveal. That is, it's another of your personal problems.

Now my friend you could not be more wrong. It's objectivity factual that you are wrong. The law says when the house impeaches a President the Senate must have a trail. It's the law. They did not have a trial for removal. They did not have a trial they said up front it would not be a fair trail they said it. look it up. They had a fixed show trail that did not allow evidence or witnesses that is not a trial. They broke the law.

You tell me that I am corrupt you follow a dictator who set's himself above the law who suborns fixed trails and subverts the law the constitution. You are not even honest enough to look at the facts,

But what if he was involved with someone who had an abortion? Does that suggest he was in any way personally involved with that evil choice? Could it not also mean that the abortion took place before his involvement with the person? Not to your sick, deceitful mind.


what the heck are you talking about? You are giving me a meaningless hypothetical. you dismiss the evil he does you are not even aware of the vast evil he's done and you don't care, you think abortion is the only sin. People like you have turned Christianity into a mockery. Trump is a wolf in sheep's clothing, open your eyes man!

I'm aware of his shortcomings as a man and as a president.

No you are not, you are not even dimly aware of it he's done vast evil that harms millions, you only think about the piddling personal sexual things, big deal. 45,000 people a year will die in the future because he took away protections on air pollution. 13,000 from striking regs on coal fired plants you don't even have an inkling do you? You are living in a dream.

As to the latter, he has proven his shortcomings are more than displaced by his skill and achievement. You know this and you don't care because you're into brutality because you're too corrupt and given over to your evil to change for the better.

He has no skill or achievement.He doesn't know how to read,did you know that?He did not make the economy better, Obama did! It was already good after an 8 year trend of steady improvement when he stole the office and you are putting materiel gain over spiritual truth, you are spiritually bankrupt.

You're sick in the soul...assuming you have one...as well as in the head.

yes! I am sick, because the what mindless cretins like you have done to sell your souls to wolves in sheep's clothing to wolves in sheep's clothing and destroying the
christian faith makes me sick. Jesus warned us. He said there will be wolves in sheep's clothing you said "that's forme."
