COMMON SENSE (2)
With all due respect to the great Thomas Paine, I borrow the title of this piece of writing and perhaps some of his most significant ideas one of which is that “Government is a necessary evil.” I also borrow these great lines that resonate with that of which I want to convey to my fellow citizens at this time of turmoil and confusion, at this time of use and abuse by a government lead by a man named Donald Trump who has, since the beginning, shown nothing but contempt for America, its citizens, its Constitution and its basic rule of law, “In the following [lines] I offer nothing more than simple facts, plain arguments, and common sense; and have no other Preliminaries to settle with the reader, than that he will divest himself [or herself] of prejudice and prepossession, and suffer his [or her] reason and his [and her] feelings to determine for themselves; that he [and she] will put on, or rather that he [or she] will not put off the true character of a man, and generously enlarge his [or her] views beyond the present day.”
In January 2018, the world has experienced the darkest day in its modern history. A criminal gangster had been able to manipulate our society and practically buy the government and the White House; certainly he had not been alone; surely he had a large group of Las Vegas gangsters and world criminals such as Putin of the ex-Soviet Union KGB, working with and for him.
“The sun never shined on a cause of greater worth. ‘This not the affair of a city, a county, a province, or a kingdom, but of a continent – of at least one eighth part of the habitable globe. ‘This not the concern of a day, a year, or an age; posterity are virtually involved in the contest, and will be more or less affected, even to the end of time, by the proceedings now. Now is the seed-time of continental union, faith and honor. The least fracture now will be like a name engraved with the point of a pin on the tender rind of a young oak; the wound will enlarge with the tree, and posterity read it in full grown characters.”
Not to argue uselessly, but to state truth, Donald Trump is but the British Occupation of our beloved America before the year 1776. We the people of the United States do not intend to rid of this malignant force by the power the Second Amendment to the Constitution falsely and incorrectly gives us, but by peaceful means. Donald Trump and his Vegas Gangsters shall be removed from office peacefully and without incidents. It is only then that the United States of America will be free again and “Great Again.” And if that were not to happen, doom shall be the alternative. The United States of America shall be doomed to destruct itself and become way below ny third world country on the planet.
It is this writer’s duty to educate the people of the United States of the process by which Donald Trump can be removed from office: The Constitution specifically provides that THE ONLY way of removing a president is impeachment by Congress and conviction by the Senate (Chief Justice of the United States Presiding). Arguably, the President cannot even be criminally charged for anything he does while in office, and even if he was charged and convicted, this would not mean automatic removal from office, and he would either have to resign or be impeached. And of course, sadly, as it relates to civil litigation, a president would have immunity for any acts he committed under his authority as President. Donald Trump’s lawyers advised him of that. He himself does not know anything about America or its system. Example of that is that every single presidential order he issued was reversed by the courts except the first one which gave corporation the absolute right to use and abuse the citizens of the United States of America.
Donald Trump is as defiant and stupid as a goat. Robert Mueller, the special counsel leading the FBI’s Russia probe, is now reportedly examining whether Trump committed obstruction of justice, according to the Washington Post.
And despite Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s recent statement on not believing “anonymous sources,” the president himself acknowledged in a furious Twitter thread that he is being investigated.
Given that obstruction of justice is what many Democrats — including California House Rep. Maxine Waters — hope will open the door to impeachment proceedings, reporters and politicians alike are smelling blood in the water. But, impeachment is a formal process with a lot of steps. We’ve written about it before.
While the House vote requires a simple majority, two-thirds of the Senate must vote to impeach in order for a president to be removed from office.
It is simply common sense, since Congress is so coward, that the other available route for the American people to take action Now, on the surface, it seems like Pence and the rest of the Cabinet members would simply have to determine that Trump is “unfit” for office, thereby making Pence President Pro Tempore. However, for now, it seems like the only hope lies with the legislative branch.
“Thus necessity, like a gravitating power, would soon form our newly arrived emigrants into society, the reciprocal blessings of which, would supersede, and render the obligations of law and government unnecessary while they remained perfectly just to each other; but as nothing but heaven is impregnable to vice, it will unavoidably happen, that in proportion as they surmount the first difficulties of emigration, which bound them together in a common cause, they will begin to relax in their duty and attachment to each other; and this remissness will point out the necessity of establishing some form of government to supply the defect of moral virtue.”
