Time to Impeach Trump

Resolution to impeach President Nixon read as follows: Resolved, That Richard M. Nixon, President of the United States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the articles of impeachment be exhibited to the Senate.

Articles of impeachment exhibited by the House of Representative of the United States of America in the name of itself and of all of the people of the United States of America against Richard M. Nixon, President of the United States of America, in maintenance of and support of its impeachment of him for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Note. Only one of the three articles of impeachment is listed here. There are so many accusations in Article 1 that are certainly applicable in what has and is taking place in the Trump Administration.

ARTICLE 1
In his conduct of the office of President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his consitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed, and impeded the administration of justice, in that:
On June 17, 1972, and prior thereto, agents of the Committee for the Re-election of the President committed unlawful entry of the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee in Washington, District of Columbia, for the purpose of securing political intelligence. Subsequent thereto, Richard M. Nixon, using the powers of his high office, engaged personally and through his close subordinates and agents, in a course of conduct or plan designed to delay, impede, and obstruct the investigation of such illegal entry; to cover up, conceal and protect those responsible; and to conceal the existence and scope of other unlawful covert activities.
The means used to implement this course of conduct or plan included one or more of the following:
making false or misleading statements to lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States;

withholding relevant and material evidence or information from lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States;

approving, condoning, acquiescing in, and counselling witnesses with respect to the giving of false or misleading statements to lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States and false or misleading testimony in duly instituted judicial and congressional proceedings;

interfering or endeavouring to interfere with the conduct of investigations by the Department of Justice of the United States, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the office of Watergate Special Prosecution Force, and Congressional Committees;

approving, condoning, and acquiescing in, the surreptitious payment of substantial sums of money for the purpose of obtaining the silence or influencing the testimony of witnesses, potential witnesses or individuals who participated in such unlawful entry and other illegal activities;

endeavouring to misuse the Central Intelligence Agency, an agency of the United States;

disseminating information received from officers of the Department of Justice of the United States to subjects of investigations conducted by lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States, for the purpose of aiding and assisting such subjects in their attempts to avoid criminal liability;

making or causing to be made false or misleading public statements for the purpose of deceiving the people of the United States into believing that a thorough and complete investigation had been conducted with respect to allegations of misconduct on the part of personnel of the executive branch of the United States and personnel of the Committee for the Re-election of the President, and that there was no involvement of such personnel in such misconduct: or

endeavouring to cause prospective defendants, and individuals duly tried and convicted, to expect favoured treatment and consideration in return for their silence or false testimony, or rewarding individuals for their silence or false testimony.
In all of this, Richard M. Nixon has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as President and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.
Wherefore Richard M. Nixon, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office.

A pathetic ignorant crook in the White House

Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay were right. They wrote in Article 75 of the Federalist Papers the following:
…….might sometimes be under temptations to sacrifice his duty to his interest, which it would require superlative virtue to withstand. An avaricious man might be tempted to betray the interests of the state to the acquisition of wealth. An ambitious man might make his own aggrandizement, by the aid of a foreign power, the price of his treachery to his constituents. The history of human conduct does not warrant that exalted opinion of human virtue which would make it wise in a nation to commit interests of so delicate and momentous a kind, as those which concern its intercourse with the rest of the world, to the sole disposal of a magistrate created and circumstanced as would be a President of the United States.
The Federalist Papers warned us about putting people of Trump’s character in the office of President of the United States of America. What is so significant about the writings? Thinkers (Political Scientists) of this era, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay Penned the Federalist Papers in 1787. They made it perfectly clear that the character of the individual entrusted with the power of President is of utmost importance. Current allegations facing President Trump is exactly about what they wrote. They write about the possibility of treason. Arron Hill opined about treason: ” The man who pauses on the path of treason, halts on quicksand, the first step engulfs him.”
There is a Latin Proverb. Nosicuter Ex Sociis, English Translation “ He is known by his companions.” Pay attention to the people surrounding Trump. Look at Trump cronies dating back well before he ran for the office of President of the United States. He has been running with people of questionable character for decades.
Another Latin proverb says “ Qualis Vir,talis Oratio. English translation” As the man, so his speech.” It is hard to imagine how a person with such poor command of the English language and serious character flaws could be elected President of the United States. Many people voting for Trump admitted that his behavior was less than expected of the President of the United States. Most people voting for him, felt given time, his behavior would change for the better,. They forgot one thing according to De La Bruyere “ In a wicked man, there is not wherewithal to make a good man.”

Sean Hannity, reincarnation of Joseph Goebbels

If one follows closely, the actions of Sean Hannity and compares them with the actions of Joseph Goebbels, it is easy to see how their actions parallel. Although Hannity has not been officially given the title of Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda for the Trump Administration, his actions and behavior on the Fox Network (owned by Cox Media) he deserves the title. Hitler utilized the media the same way Trump does. Trump As Hitler realized there was a segment of society that were eagerly waiting to hear and believe what both men had to say. As mentioned in Goebbels dairies, Hitler had an appreciation of the importance of feeding the media with what they want-so does Trump. Hannity picks up where Trump leaves off. Hannity, using Fox, manages what he wants Fox listeners to see and hear. His messages are screened and directed at an audience he knows will accept anything he say as factual without question. He knows if he verifies what Trump says as factual, his audience will accept it as factual. As with Goebbels, Hannity has created a mindset and convinced his listeners that they should not waste their time searching for the truth and stick to making decisions based on emotions. Notice how Hannity uses the spoken word to deliver his message. Goebbels used the same tactics.   Trump is slowly but surely isolating a segment of the media from the day-to-day operation of the White House. Fox and Hannity has unlimited access to the White House, while other Media Outlets are either barred from interviews or their reporters questions are not answered. Limiting select Media outlets to the White House, limits what news the public has access to. Remember, not everyone listens and looks at news coming over the Fox Network. Goebbels wrested total control of the media in Germany. This is what Trump and his supporters are hoping for. With unbridled and unfettered help from Fox, One America News and a host of lesser known so called media outlets, Trump now has at his fingertip an unofficial Propaganda Machine. This machine is well oiled and well funded. At the head of this propaganda is Sean Hannity. Americans must wake up and see Trump and his folk for what they really are.
