DONALD TRUMP THE CON ARTIST
For New Yorkers Donald Trump has been a con artist his entire life. To think that he would give up his fraudulent behaviors when he entered the White House and accepted the presidential oath of office in the 2017 Inauguration was folly. However, Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate, at that point were traditionalists. They believed that Trump would follow constitutional norms as he implied he would. The American people were duped. Politicians were duped. Trump got over and lied about everything he promised. But a reckoning is coming.
CAN DON THE CON BE THAT BAD? YOU BETCHA!
The Democrats, believing that malfeasance happened with regard to Vladimir Putin assisting Trump's win with all manner of chicanery, resisted his presidency. However, Trump duped them into thinking he would eventually change and become presidential. For example, he would abide by the Emoluments Clause, putting his business into a trust, which he promised he would do. He lied! He didn't! (and today the Trump 6 person appointed Supreme Court didn't hear arguments regarding lawsuits challenging his abuse of this clause) Democrats and Republicans thought he wouldn't mix politics with his business. They were wrong. From the moment he entered the White House, the quid pro quos to improve his business coffers began. He used his properties to entertain foreign leaders and the American people paid for his golf trips at his properties as he overcharged for Secret Service room and board to the tune of millions of dollars. Considering that Trump golfed for around 300 days out of the four years he inhabited the presidency, his promise that he wouldn't golf like Obama did, but would work and never leave the White House, was blown up the second or third week he took over the presidency, which he proved, ipso facto, was illegitimately bestowed upon him.

Democrats and Republicans thought he would adhere to the Hatch Act and not use the White House or any other Federal building and/or Air Force One to further his political campaign. He didn't. He used Air Force One as a backdrop for campaign rallies. With the swearing in of Judge Amy Conan Barrett, the White House Rose Garden was destroyed to make room for a green lawn that could hold 500 + guests. Banners were hung from the back of the White House, advertising Trump as the soon to be elected president for the next four years, and if he could swing it with his cronies in the House and Senate, as long as he remained alive. Many of his staff used their positions to advertise Trump in his campaigns; Kellyanne Conway was key in this. Democrats complained; Republicans watched silently as he broke every tradition of the presidency, every constitutional norm and turned America into Trumpland a place that existed for his benefit alone.
THE US BECOMES TRUMPLAND
As the duping continued with regard to the immigration catastrophe and DACA and the wall at the U.S./Mexico border, Trump violated the constitution and was taken to court repeatedly, prompting Mitch McConnell to pack the court with as many conservative judges as possible, though many of them were inexperienced, and unqualified for the Federal Bench. They did have the one element McConnell wanted. They were young and would live long after McConnell was dead. Democrats complained, shocked at his administration's torture and abuse of children. Republicans were largely silent and more than a few white supremacists in the House and Senate supported Trump's abuses of caging children, splitting up families, providing unfit conditions in holding pens for profit and more.
There was evidence of Trump controlling every a aspect of the presidency. He hollowed out all departments, firing career civil servants. He hired corrupt individuals who were campaign donors with conflicts of interest to his campaign, who eventually ended up resigning and leaving a trail of abuse and corruption behind them (Ryan Zincke, Scott Pruitt, among the many) which should be investigated. Republicans said nothing. Democrats complained.Former head of the EPA Scott Pruitt resigned because of egregious corruption (courtesy of the site)
THE DESECRATION OF CONSTITUTIONAL NORMS AND VALUES
Trump attacked every institution and the staff who might either criticize him or call his desecration of presidential norms into question. The press was an "enemy of the people." What people? The American people? Or Trump? Wasn't it important to identify if Trump's lies? No! The fake news must flatter his presidency. Shouldn't they point out that he was incontinent of his fiduciary responsibility? Didn't that impact everyone in the nation? No. Shut up and put up in autocratic style that even George Bush Jr. condemned.
If the truth reported by the press was unflattering, embarrassing or showed Trump's mismanagement, incompetence or corruption it was dismissed as fake news by every Trump press secretary, the radical extremist right wing and a slurry of 150 characters tweeted by Trump daily. Democrats complained and Republicans said nothing. The press was divided into various degrees of radical right conservative media and radical left liberal media. Social media added to the misinformation campaigns predominately pushed by Russian Military Intel, QAnon and the RNC. The American people were being duped, once more, especially if they didn't read widely, think for themselves, and investigate facts from three or four different sources.
TRUMP'S MODUS OPERANDI: LIE, CHEAT, STEAL WITH IMPUNITY
The last four years exemplify Trump's MO, which eventually insinuated itself into the heart of the Republican Party and destroyed its soundness, vitality and wisdom. If you read Michael Cohen's book Disloyal, it is a template of how Trump's fraud corrupts gradually, pitting enemy against enemy, bullying and extorting, offering quid pro quos, false flattery, and committing criminal behavior pushing decency and legality to the edge and over. Why not? Trump obfuscated, covering up the lawlessness with lies and clouds of projection and shame, blaming everyone else, except the individual manipulating all the players, Trump. Meanwhile, #QAnon swallowed his every word uplifting him as a god and Democrats and the skeptical tried to fact check. But until MSNBC and other outlets actually investigated his lies, it was difficult to know what was misinformation.
Through these years of corruption, abuse of power, lies, chicanery, quid pro quos, Trump never kept his promises. For example coal was supposed to make a come back-it didn't. Trade deals which were supposed to help the US economy, actually bankrupted farmers and others along supply chains. Billionaire tax breaks were promised to trickle down; they flooded upward and the common folks got no relief, and were confused about Witholding which looked like relief until their tax bill came due and they owed more. Infrastructure jobs never came. In fact more jobs were lost on Trump's watch than other presidents despite his galactic claims to the contrary. The market went higher. However, it rode the Obama administration's success. Obama moved the DOW from 7900 to 20,000+. In fact, Trump's Dow trails Obama's and Clinton's DOW (see article).
Trump's supporters cheered him at his rallies, as he campaigned during his years as 45. In fact he campaigned more than he worked; he enjoyed the crowds laughing at his vilification of his enemies and the press. They loved his lies believing them truths. They walked away comforted, not looking at their bank accounts after the mammoth tax benefit given to billionaires. And even if they did look, they didn't understand that they actually paid more in taxes proportionately than the average billionaire and the millionaires in the House and the Senate.It is doubtful whether Trump ever read this document. Every citizen should.
ABROGATION OF ARTICLE 1 CHECKS AND BALANCES
By the time Trump had forced the resignations of most of his cabinet putting in Acting Secretaries who couldn't vote the 25th amendment against him, and the Senate stupidly confirmed William Barr, another con who Democrats and Republicans were duped by, the constitutional checks and balances had been abrogated. Barr supported Trump as a loyalist, made evident when Barr summarized the mammoth Mueller Report in a minimum of paragraphs and stated Trump was vindicated, a lie. We found out later there was no intelligence report and Trump's finances were not investigated; if no conspiracy with Putin was proved, it was because Trump screamed to quash the investigation, threatened to fire Mueller numerous times, and had an Acting AG, Whittaker use chicanery with the Report leaking parts of it. DOJ's actions were questionable, especially if Trump loyalists were scattered here and there in the department. As for the Mueller Report, its grave and comprehensive findings showing Russia's meddling in the 2016 election were swept under the rug and have largely been kept quiet to this day.
At that point, all that was left of the viable branches of government were the courts, which Mitch McConnell was packing with conservative Republican judges, and the Executive. In fact, the government was Trump, the Executive minus the legislative branch. The Democrats complained and the Trumper Party went along with Trump, eliminating constitutional mandates. For them and Trump, all was well. Quid pro quos went on, The US was sold off to corporations violating the EPA and more.
|Loyal William Barr twisted the law and made her dance to Trump's tune. But he didn't accept #thebiglie and resigned (courtesy of the site)|| |
However, the power grab by Republicans backfired in the 2018 elections. Whether they knew it or not in supporting no subpoenas during the Mueller Investigation, the senate had thrown over their own legislative powers. Americans didn't approve of letting Trump believe himself above the law with no congressional checks and balances and the threat of health care being dismantled except for John McCain's support. They voted for a Democratic House that would guarantee and uphold the ACA. Trumper senators defiled their oaths of office being subsumed under the Trump Executive. This was dictatorship in the making. Trump could do as he pleased and not be held to account.
Nowhere was this more evident than in the impeachment trial with no subpoena of witnesses. For the Republicans it was grandstanding and arguments about the fly on the wall process. The Democrats presented a case, rather like Atticus Finch did in To Kill A Mockingbird. It was powerful, but would go nowhere; the jury was rigged to ignore the damning facts and evidence, bowing to Trump and abrogating the constitution and their oaths. Where Tom Robinson was found guilty, though an innocent black man, Trump, of privilege was acquitted, though guilty. Only one brave Republican voted to convict: Mitt Romney who is an untouchable and noted for his incorruptibility. The other Republicans have no shame where corruption is concerned; Trump had made his deals and they gave him an acquittal, despite Rep. Adam Schiff's adjuration to the effect that Trump would abuse his oath of office and his constitutional powers again. They must not give him that opportunity.
A WARNING OF CONGRESSIONAL SEDITION
Not holding a proper trial in the senate was tantamount to sedition. Trump, the quid pro quo President, made an extortionate proposition to the Ukrainian president, to promulgate a smear campaign against Hunter Biden to emotionally devastate and overthrow Joe Biden's presidential candidacy. In the witnessed call, Trump abused his oath to the constitution and committed an abuse of congress in an attempt to have a foreign power interfere with a candidate for the 2020 election by withholding slated congressional funds so Ukraine could protect itself against Russian aggression. Ukrainian soldiers died while Trump diddled and abused them, our democracy and our congress. But Joe Biden must be smeared to give him the presidency; it was Trump's criminal thinking.
The Ukrainian president held firm and showed the courage the Republican senators could not. He didn't accept the quid pro quo. Trump got caught and courageous whistleblowers came forward testifying against Trump. For their disloyalty to Trump and loyalty to their constitutional oaths and democracy, they received mammoth death threats and were fired, though these were career civil servants. Once again the dictator rose up and showed, "Be loyal to me, not the constitution, or you will be severely punished, lose your career, your pension, reputation, whatever I can smear and defile in your life, I will. You are TOAST!" To this day, these whistleblowers are heroes to the republic and deserve Congressional Medals of Freedom and recompense from Trump's business coffers; they should sue him for damages.

The vindication by the Republican senate who refused to conduct a trial, empowered Trump for his future dictatorship. There was only one problem. The 2020 election and Joe Biden, the one who Trump tried to get dirt on but couldn't, not even with the help of everyone under the power of his voice, including two dirt bag thugs directed by Rudy Guiliani. Trump tried to foment Bernie winning the primary so he could excoriate the "democratic socialist" with cries against him of "that communist will destroy the economy and Wall St." That too failed.
Again and again, the smear campaigns about Hunter Biden, the Hollywood blood drinking vampires, Joe Biden as a pederast (actually Trump is the pederast with Jeff Epstein his buddy and testimony to that effect) didn't stick. How pathetic are the posts of some of my relatives about these smears! My relatives are still convinced that Hillary and Podesta used that Pizza Parlor as their witches' den. And they were irate that the gunman who went in to "save the children" found nothing and was taken out in handcuffs. Such conspiracies cannot be answered. It makes me sick that Russian Military Intel via Social Media and radical extremist right wing outlets have burrowed their vapid memes, like canker worms, into my relatives' minds turning the lights off. I don't know if they can ever be turned on again.
The COVID molecule under magnification
TRUMP'S COVID BOTCH JOB FOR THE AGES
But it was a spiky molecule that SOLIDIFIED Trump's galactic horror show incompetence and MAGADEATH. Instead of being a hero and saving the day, Trump converted a public health crisis into a political crisis; his own BOTCHED inaction (at a time that required immediate, forceful and organized gearing up to fight the COVID WAR) threw him under the bus. When an infectious virus is spread in a room, everyone, regardless of party, is in jeopardy. Trump, the selfish Executive, forced "his" people to fall on their own sword and prove their loyalty by pretending COVID didn't exist.
For some this was costly pride. Herman Cain was a casualty, and countless others suicided themselves believing COVID to be the flu. Trump insisted they validate their master by not wearing masks, acting like superpeople in superspreader events. Their patent stupidity in obeying him is a testament that insanity was required of Trump's loyal followers or staff. Patients with COVID have died in their hospital beds believing Trump that COVID is an exaggerated hoax. In an act of COVID KARMA, Trump fell prey to his own bullshit. He did this despite knowing early on in a conversation with Bob Woodward (see his book Rage) that COVID was deadly. His family and 40+ individuals at the White House (some staff didn't make it) got COVID and his friends fell to COVID: Guiliani and Chris Christie. It took millions in treatment, steroids and anticlonal antibodes, etc., for Trump to feel like a new man. Of course this was after he was panting heavily as he lumbered off to the helicopter, barely making it to Walter Reed one fearful sundown in October.
| Florida Republican Governor De Santis nicknamed Death Santis for his loyalty to Trump's minimalization of COVID and need for masking and regulations (courtesy of the site)|
But no matter. Trump got his red state governors to kill their own with no mask mandates and inaccurate recordings of deaths and active cases. The inaccuracies continue to this day, but the jig will soon be up as Biden and his team mandate an accurate accounting. Watch the numbers skyrocket in Florida and elsewhere. Above all, Trump with velvet, iron importunings of money and trips to his resorts and other quid pro quos insinuated his corruption into the MO of "his" senate and house members to do the unthinkable; cover the truth and support his lies, in an always and forever loyalty that will kill them, if not destroy their careers, for Trump demands loyalty, but gives none back. Trumpers in the House and Senate didn't wear masks either and spread COVID.
As the COVID death toll numbers rose and rise, the dead then and now cried out. Blood is on Trump's head and hands, and on the head and hands of all his supporters in the government. Mistake. Since the American people had nothing to lose except their lives, their livelihoods, their children and everything of value, while Trump and his government wallowed in their selfish sty, an act of WHITE MALE PRIVILEGE, women everywhere and of every race and gender spoke and voted, even if their partners were too busy looking the other way.

AMERICANS HAD HAD ENOUGH AND TOOK A STAND AGAINST DICTATOR TRUMP
The American people of all races, creeds, genders, colors rejected Trump and those who backed his lies. Men and women who had had enough voted them out; voted Mitch McConnell out of the senate majority leader position with Reverend Warnock and John Ossoff Georgia wins and brought in a Democratic landslide. After all, the Democrats were accurate about the death rates. You can't cover up that many stinking bodies, even if Trump never held a memorial service or acknowledged the COVID death tolls, and his folks in the press and his politicos minimized COVID as best they could. Everyone knew someone who died miserably and alone of COVID. EVERYONE. And from the grave, those haunted and "invisible" cried and still cry to the heavens for justice.
Their cries have been joined by others long dead. Every union soldier who fought and died during the Civil War cries out for justice at their blood not TO BE SHED IN VAIN. So do those cry out who sacrificed their good will and love for this democracy: Abraham Lincoln and Grant and Sumner and Daniel Webster and all the greats of that time and the 20th century like FDR, Eisenhower, Kennedy and Johnson who dwarf the cowardly, white supremacist domestic terrorist prone politicians of this time, the lame, halt and blind: Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, Mo Brooks, Rand Paul, Andy Biggs, Louie Gohmert, Rep.Paul Goser, Rep Lauren Boebert, Rep Marjorie Taylor Green and others. Not fit to stand in the shoes of our American leaders, these quislings should be removed via the 14th amendment for supporting Trump, mob violence and insurrection at the Capitol. All those senators who conspired to overthrow the electoral college ballots by rejecting them and all the political conspirators supporting Trump's #BIGLIE that he won? Irrevocably, immutably, completely remove them from office so that they may never hold office again.
| Mo Brooks and his Republican conspirators taking a stand for #thebiglie 12/14 (courtesy of the site)|
Trump lost. Biden won. The inauguration where Biden was sworn in happened, despite all QAnon prophecies to the contrary. In one fell swoop #thebiglie EXPLODED and #thegreatbetrayal was stamped on the hearts of his supporters on that day. Trump will NOT pardon insurrectionists who are going to trial. Trump will not save the Trumper Party from itself. He duped them, gaining their loyalty and their donations which he has repeatedly done to the tune of billions. The Trump money con! Where is that money? Surely, much of it was pocketed in shell corporations. Putin and his oligarchs are holders of over a billion in loans. Where is that money he owes Putin, et. al.? Will we ever see his tax returns which he promised?
Trump ALWAYS MADE empty promises, like telling the mob violent supporters that he was marching with them to the CAPITOL. Seriously? Did they really think that "bone spurs" Trump, the coward of all cowards would put himself in harm's way while the angry, violent carried guns, wore swat gear, brandished bear mace, hockey sticks and other weapons to storm the seat of our democracy? Did they really believe that Trump would march into the fray and "fight like hell?" Duped! #thebiglie #thegreatbetrayal.

BIDEN WON, CONGRESSIONAL TREASON AFOOT
Biden won. Trump lost in a landslide. It is monstrous that senators and congressmen along with Trump use"the duped" to mount an insurrection to overturn the vote and kill the VP and Nancy Pelosi. Rich Southern planters used poor whites during the Civil War to fight for slavery when the poor least benefited from slavery economics. Yet the poor went. The poor fought. The poor died so that slaves weren't their equals. That same sick #BIGLIE is being used to foment domestic terrorism. Billionaires like Robert Mercer, Koch and other radical right wingers use white supremacists and evangelicals to propagate their agenda of money grab and tax deliverance to only the billionaire class. The billionaire cruelty is egregiously obvious, as the Democrats remain united in one party: progressive, moderate, conservative, liberal, all uplifting the constitution and democracy, one person, one vote, all races, creeds, colors.
For decades and especially Reagan's administration the wealthy have shown their greed to disenfranchise Americans from constitutional values, what Eishenhower and FDR stated was a right to a good job, reasonably priced medical care, and equitable opportunity. The wealthy never invited lower middle class white supremacists and prosperity minded evangelicals to the tables of their billionaire tax breaks and exponentially increasing prosperity on the backs of working class American families. They left them swinging in a cold wind while billionaires courted foreign autocrats to interfere in our democratic systems to prevent the poor for exercising their rights. #thebiglie #thegreatbetrayal Many Americans are aware. But ALL American must open their eyes to this truth, especially QAnon and Trumpers who Trump/Republicans would exploit using anger and hate.
The "duped" by the Trump con have been used, exploited, abused for their votes. Once they support Republicans, the Republicans treat them like scum, curtailing Medicare and Medicaid and getting rid of the ACA, so that Americans must struggle to pay off student loans, struggle to afford doctor's visits and overpriced drugs (Trump never took care of the promise he would make drugs affordable, while he got free treatment for COVID at Walter Reed which taxpayers paid for, while being deprived of their own medical treatments.)
Trump duped "his" blind followers and used them for his own purpose to smear democracy and uplift Putin and autocracy, to gain and keep power and get more money. He riled them up then abandoned the violent mob to stampede each other, brutalize cops and kill their own and one hero, Capitol Policeman Brian Sicknick, whom the mob bludgeoned to death with a fire extinguisher. Add more blood on Trump's head since not only did his rhetoric foment the violence and send them to the Capitor, but after mischief was afoot there, he watched the bloodshed on TV. And he enjoyed it and laughed and marveled at what "god" wrought, instead of calling in the National Guard like he did for the peaceful protest at Lafayette Park.
| Peaceful protest at Layfette Park which Trump had the riot squad attack them with gas and rubber bullets to clear the area for a photo op (courtesy of the site)|
In fact, he most probably sent word to the Department of Defense and Pentagon that no Guard should be sent in despite pleadings by anyone including the Sergeant of Arms of the Senate and House.That is why it was hours of violence, threats to his VP Mike Pence and family, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other members of congress. That is why there was vandalism, theft, pooping and peeing everywhere, killing 4 Trumpers and Brian Sicknick before the Guard were called in. And after the riot terrorized those who were trying to count the electoral votes and they had to flee to find safety, only hours afterward did Trump begrudgingly make a video telling his violent to go home, assuring them "HE LOVED THEM" FOR WHAT THEY DID. And after the video he was reportedly furious that he was FORCED to make that video to stop the violence. He was furious because it was not his intention to stop it!
Duped. Betrayed. Trumpers were duped about his winning 2020. And they were betrayed because Trump is not in the White House. Biden is. And Biden's justice department will decide what to do about mob violence, death, destruction at the Capitol after viewing all of the video tape and pictures the American people are sending in of the insurrectionists. Because of the voyeurism, the violence is click bait; it's all over the news, as was the Inauguration, the 25,000 National Guard troops at the Capitol and the irrevocability of Biden's win. And with every extremist right-wing media attack of Biden's presidency, the #thebiglie is exposed. Biden won. Biden is president. If Fox is attacking Biden's presidential Executive Orders, it acknowledges he is president, or it wouldn't even give him air time.
|Rep Liz Chaney, third highest ranking Republican in the House courageously stood for the constitution and her oath and voted to impeach Trump (courtesy of the site)|
If Trump lied about winning and incited hundreds to riot for him then abandoned them, what else has he lied about? Trumpers must consider this. Trump is THE unreliable narrator. To believe everything out of his mouth, then, you would have to wonder why Biden was inaugurated, why Fox news and extreme right wing news covers Biden's actions about travel during COVID, the checks going out to families and Trump's impeachment trial. IMPEACHMENT TRIAL? Trump can't pardon himself or anyone who rioted. Pardons show he is culpable. Not only did he abandon his supporters, he abandoned himself at a self-pardon which shows he is guilty. His only thread of hope is Josh Hawly and seditious senators. But the American people are watching. And so are our forefathers and ancestors of our democracy. The treasonous senators hang in the balance and will be judged if they choose justice or #thebiglie.
Evangelicals have to face the reckoning of liars. Satan is the Father of lies. Christ stands for the Truth. Is their god Trump lying about just one thing? Or many things? For sure, he didn't win; they were duped. They gave money to support his presidency and the overthrow of the government. Did they support a lie and pay for a lie? How will God judge their religion as not being able to discern between a lie and the truth? Following the lies of Mammon, and the love of money is following a lie. Trump has lied to them continually and they followed a liar. What does that make them before God? If you read Michael Cohen's book Disloyal, you will discover what Trump thinks about religion and God.
| Are all members of the House and Senate worthy to hold their offices if they do not uphold the constitution against an insurrection fomented by the former president? (courtesy of the site)|
There will be no pardons for the violent at the Capitol. If Trump secretly pardoned the KKK, Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, Ginni Thomas and her busloads of insurrectionists, and by design her husband Clarence Thomas and wealthy Trump donors who went along to support the overthrow of #thebiglie, then his secret pardon would incriminate himself as a party to the conspiracy to overthrow the government and Biden's win rejecting a peaceful transfer of power. What of the others who conspired, assisted in the National Guard being told to stand down, jeopardizing Vice President Mike Pence? Whistleblowers are coming forward as I write this. The culpable will swing in the wind and should not hold government service again. They violated their oaths to uphold the constitution. There should be Court Marshals because some members of the military are involved. And for the members in the House and Senate who violate their oaths by supporting Trump's acquittal? They must be removed.
Trump will not give them what they want. All he wants is what he wants. He has proven that one thousand times during his presidency. And now that he is out of power, he can offer nothing. Putin's government is going to fall. He can't offer Putin's money which is going to be in shortfall with the Biden administration which will sanction and target the oligarchs, not the Russian people. He can offer Saudi Arabia. However, the Saudis want to gain favors from Biden. Trump has nothing to offer. Biden holds and will continue to hold power because the American people will make sure of it.
Trump ingratiated himself with powerful people who are cutting ties with him, as the FBI and other intelligence agencies clean up the mess he's made and investigate his criminal acts with foreign countries in a time of virtual war. And with every individual Biden appoints, we will see that these are individuals of the highest caliber who are loyal to democracy, not Biden. They are brilliant, wise, measured and knowledgeable about history and the country which they venerate and serve. They do not take kindly to criminals, violent, white supremacist domestic terrorists attempting to usurp power they do not have simply because of the privilege of being Caucasian (which means mixed race oftentimes).

UNITY FOR ALL ON THE SAME PAGE OF THE CONSTITUTION
Trump's reckoning is upon him. Unity comes after justice, only when those who scream for unity, declare they are on the same page as the unifiers. First, they must acknowledge to their supporters and those who voted for Trump #thebiglie. Trump lost and fomented an insurrection. If they support Trump, they hang by a thread and should be removed. They must acknowledge they should be removed. If they can't, they must be removed. If they wish to continue in their positions in Congress, they must decry their actions and turn from Trump. At the least, they must be censured for a period of time and their votes not be counted. If that is too determinative, they can resign. Second, they must go on radical extremist right wing media and state #thebiglie and also state that Trump fomented violence and that they cannot support Trump and still hold office. Indeed, the seditionist senators must either recuse themselves from voting in the trial or must convict Trump to prevent him from running again.
If that is too arduous, they may vote to acquit him and then be removed via the 14th amendment. However, any votes supporting Trump are supporting a treasonous dictator over the US, supporting the abrogation of the constitution, supporting insurrection, violent overthrow and murder. They cannot hold office since they abrogated their power denying a peaceful transfer of power. The same goes for Trump. He abrogated the constitution by betraying his oath of office and annihilating the role of president, refusing to accept the peaceful transfer of power. He must not be acquitted. He must be convicted.
Liz Cheney said, There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution.#thegreatbetrayal. For all who support Trump, those who accept #thebiglie and his CRIMINALITY and refuse to see #thegreatbetrayal? I pray your eyes be opened. There cannot be unity unless Trumpers understand the depth of the evil they supported. Understanding how Trumpers fell into the abyss of the TRUMP CON is a moral imperative to begin a return to the truth. May God help those find their way out of the Trumpian darkness.
