Right. Wee bit curious that there isn’t an ultimate standard for whether an act is or is not treasonous. Works to Don’s advantage, though.
There no doubt there an element among the US population that would resort to the use of arms and violence against others if their beloved Fuhrer impeached. Trump counts on this and tries to fuel their anger and is in essence giving his blessing.
Interesting that as this is happening here Boris Johnson and his schocktruppen are threatening violence against Labour MPs. Could there be a pattern here?
We may someday see a “Civil War” between the Fascists and the Democratic Socialists.
I tend to think it is a mirror projection that ‘kicks the can down the road’ to buy time for further criminality on the part of whomever sinks to that sort of assertion. That then makes me wonder… what is the strange “attractor” (to borrow and, in this case bastardize a term from astrophysics and cosmology) in the future that provides a false rationalization for both blatant and subtle criminality? Is the aggregate of the historical abuses considered so dire that the users in their tunnel vision “think” there is no future worth living for?
I wish I knew what that comment was trying to say.
“I tend to think it is a mirror projection that ‘kicks the can down the road’ to buy time for further criminality on the part of whomever sinks to that sort of assertion.”
Does that mean that by charging him with crimes that he did not commit while ignoring those that he did, we will successfully get him out? Does that mean that we should charge him now with crimes that he may commit “down the road”? What does that mean?
Whomever sinks to what assertion?
What do “mirror projection(s)” have to do with anything? What is a “mirror projection”?
Don doesn’t need to be careful. If there’s mass confrontation, it’s all the same to him. No big whoop.
“All the Clinton fans who continue to clamor for charges of treason against Trump should read the Constitution. It is, after all, pretty specific as to what constitutes treason,”
Agreed – Just about everyone leveling charges of treason (from the right, from the middle, from wherever) stop.
Yeah, some “Reverend”. Some servant of Christ…
It was only a matter of time before one of Trump’s rabid-dog minions, and one of the first is ironically a so-called Reverend, using more White Nationalist dog-whistle language to try and scare people by speaking of Civil War. How pathetic, but how appropriate, considering the source.
What DemocRAT misleaders should, but will never do: challenge the amoral RethugliKKKans to condemn Trump for:
Implying that the Ukraine phone call whistleblower be executed as a “spy”.
Calling Rep. Adam Schiff a “traitor” for doing his job as head of the House Intelligence Committee.
Invoking the terrible threat of a U.S. civil war by repeating the deranged comments of a deranged extremist evangelical preacher who should also be condemned and have his church’s tax-exempt status removed for his partisan political rhetoric.
If RethugliKKKans truly cared about the U.S. more than their re-elections and power and wealth and greed, they would demand that the 25th Amendment be used to force Trump to resign.
The DemocRATS and RethugliKKKans obviously value their re-elections, power, control, and greed FAR above the future of the U.S. and of the planet.
They are despicable, willing tools of the morally-deranged plutocracy running the U.S. and much of the world.
If there are future generations, they will justifiably denounce and condemn these smug, arrogant criminals as the evil they are.
The “civil war” will happen in Trumps home when his family breaks apart and disowns him
We must be brothers from different mothers.
Yes, that’s likely. But now we’re more “sophisticated.”
Barr and Pompeo have to shouldered a lot of blame for this toxic atmosphere today. I wonder if they feel the noose tightening?
Read “Democracy in Chains” by Nancy MacLean.
Plus, we are getting low on natural resources and the1 % want them for their own use.
Translation= You and yours are expendable.
O-yes indeed they do.
Bring it on! Let’s see if any of those clowns have the balls they claim to have. When the Hammonds fired their shots at Federal Agents, they did so only after cowardly calculating the time do so during Obama’s administration. They didn’t have the balls to do anything like that during Bush’s administration.
Trump is correct (even though he reposted someone elses quote). The Left planned to usher in Social-Globalism under Hillary, which would have been the end of the U.S. the same way the EU has destroyed sovereignty of all of Europe. Trump through a wrench in that plan, and the Left are creating hoax after hoax to try to impeach him. The left is now a treasonous coup within America. Here is the slippery slope though…impeachment would set off a civil war, because real Americans understand this is a coup, and know our founding fathers instructed us to take up arms against all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC, and against tyrannical government should it ever rise in America. However, the Left would take the opportunity to use an old play in their playbook, declare national crisis, and bring in “UN Peacekeepers”, almost all of which are Chinese Army. In other words, invasion by China to usher in Globalism/Communism. “Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government.”
