    So the president is openly violating his oath of office, in which he swore to uphold and protect the constitution, by blatantly attempting to not just ignore but directly contradict a decision of the Supreme Court… if it wasn’t bad enough before, it certainly is now. Trump not only needs to be impeached but he, his cabinet, and his appointees (Barr) should end up in jail for these actions and for standing silent during this period of unrelenting criminality. He is absolutely a dictator in the making and his removal needs to be the top national priority.

    More fake news, there's going to be a war breakout here,Trump isn't the president of the U.S. anymore, the U.S. Army had to administer and enforce the law and make Trump not the president and Pence not the vice, Mary Stanley's gang bribed most of the federal government workers in Washington D.C. to quit their jobs that's why the U.S. Army had to do it, Trump's gang probably murdered some people in Washington D.C., probably those 6in9 ones went into nursing homes and murdered some people or else they murdered some U.S. Marine's or U.S. Senator's, I believe that Trump doesn't like the U.S. Military or the U.S. government and that it was his idea to murder some U.S. Marine's or U.S. Senator's and to have some of his gang people do it, the 6in9 ones.
    It's time to declare a war against those gangs, Trump's gang, Mary Stanley's gang, Pence's gang, Obama's gang, Bill and Hillary Clinton's gang, and Pelosi's gang, raid Trump's tower in New York City, there will probably be a wild shootout there the U.S. Military against Trump's gang inside of that tower, probably a bunch of those 6in9 gang criminals inside of there and the 6in9's that murdered some U.S. Marine's in Washington D.C., and some Russians, Trump and his wife, a lot of those people will be arrested and shot and killed there or wherever, there's probably a lot of illegal money inside of that tower, that will be seized, Trump's gang probably embezzled that money out of the federal tax accounts in Washington D.C..
    All of the federal courts and the FBI have been shutdown since about 2014 after Mary Stanley's gang and Pence's gang murdered an FBI agent from the Indianapolis Indiana FBI office, and Mary Stanley's gang murdered a U.S. Supreme Court judge or a U.S. Senator, Mary Stanley's gang bribed most of the FBI agent's and Federal court judges to quit their jobs, Mary Stanley's gang and Pence's gang also bribed a lot of police officers in the state of Indiana and West Virginia to quit their jobs, the White House will be seized, searched and destroyed by the real U.S. Army, there's going to be a war breakout against Trump's gang, Mary Stanley's gang, Pence's gang, Bill and Hillary Clinton's gang, Obama's gang, and Pelosi's gang, they've committed a lot of devilworshipping murders, embezzled billions of dollars, racketeered various crimes murders, labor, etc., fake police officer's all over the place, there will be a lot of real estate to seize that Mary Stanley's gang owns, a lot of homes and buildings to destroy. I want the job or contract tearing those homes down Cat 336 excavator and a Cat 973 track loader, there's some homes right here in Jefferson county Indiana that Mary Stanley's gang owns, there's probably fake names on the real estate deeds.
    The U.S. Army needs to go to Jefferson county Indiana, to get the fake police officer's out of the police department's and court house, the schools here have been shutdown for about six weeks now because of the fake police officer's people are concerned about their safety and security, and those gangs embezzling money from the state and federal government. Some of those gang criminals will have to be shot and killed, gang criminals that have did those devilworshipping murders, Mary Stanley and Pence's gang have bought funeral homes to try to cover up murders, those funeral homes will have to be seized, searched, and destroyed by the real U.S. Army.
    There needs to be real news, I believe that the real U.S. Army will probably have to make those public announcements.

    If Trump loses money, Daddy bails him out. Getting drafted in Army, bone spurs get him out. Loses again and again, he declares bankruptcy. Runs fro Prez, Russia gets him in. There's always a way. That's how he thinks.

    Pelosi's response to the demand for Trump's impeachment is to insist on a step-by-step approach. With what objective? Meanwhile, Trump undermines our Constitution by leaps-and-bounds. He owns the GOP and the Senate, AG Barr is his fixer, and SCOTUS could be his tool within a few months. The question is not whether he'll win the next election but whether there will be a 2020 election!

    he is a disgraceful liar pervert and spastic disabled president at the beginning of the us. and even the British ambassador noticed that you still can not see the citizen of the United States. This unbalanced United States and the whole world of trouble and the 3rd world war will start a creature. The world hates you and the tramp. you are a despicable country.

  • Winston C. Pitman Post author

    I agree with the UK ambassador… Trump is a serious problem to himself and our country!

  • Steve Beck Post author

    Ask the question. Are you a US citizen? No problem.

    If we ever have a Democratic president again, I wish he or she would appoint Neal Katyal to the Supreme Court.

    They didn't "RULE AGAINST" anything. You are FAKE news! Such manipulators of reality.. Only Sheeple swallow the koolaid you serve!
    Obama removed the citizenship question that had been on there decades prior.
    Why are We The People not entitled to know who is here and who is or isn't a citizen? You leftists fear Truth!
    Nothing more than communist socialist propagandists!
    Pathetic that you live in this nation with all its benefits yet offer deception designed to destroy what makes us a great nation.

    You guys are amazing! We sat still for eight long years, that’s right the Obama years, and keep our mouth shut. We didn’t like it but he was our president! But you guys just can’t get over it can you ?

  • joseph bodden Post author

    for the life of me this reminds me of nothing else than the times I have corrected cops on the law, even printing out codes for them to read, and they just smirk and say 'We don need no steenking laws, we are the laws…" only extorting the SCOTUS could end differently.

    I’m no Trump fan, but what’s wrong with having the question? The census is only useful for political reasons and only citizens can vote. All the other inhabitants are here by invitation or here illegally.

    Forget the Hispanics. The REAL threat is the Indians (and Pakistanis) stealing white-collar jobs and suppressing wages. KICK THEM OUT! REVOKE H-1B visas! GET RID OF THE INDIANS.

    Trump will probably propose reinstating the 3/5 Compromise. I’m not calling him a racist, but if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck… no, he’s definitely a racist.

    Two hundred years from now, history will have recorded that the last world war began during the last year of trump’s first term. After that, the wasteland and societal breakdown.

    Defiance of a Supreme Court order would be grounds for impeachment. I'd go so far as to say that a few Trump sycophants in the Senate might even vote to convict. It's that big of a deal.

  • ShadowFoxSF Post author

    Every reasoning trump ever uses for anything is contrived.

    And I use reasoning in the loosest sense of the word

    Ari- any chance you could follow this up with Preet Bharara? He is another US attorney who has been close to a lot of the "action" with DJT.

    More proof that the British Ambassador was absolutely correct in his summation of a chaotic and dysfunctional administration! (As if the world doesn’t already know this.)

  • Rob Genson Post author

    Trump doesn't know how the government or legal process works he believes he's is the supreme ruler of the world and he can do what ever he wants no matter what he has to do to achieve this his inexperience incompetentcy mafia mentality and ideology makes him unfit for office

    Can you guys clone Neal Katyal, cuz you could sure use a lot more of him in the U.S. This guy is amazing – freakin brilliant Lawyer, articulate, rational, wise beyond his years, dry sense of humour, knows and respects the Constitution, – a very smart man with an incredible moral compass – a concept that is non-existent in TrumpWorld. Barr is at the other end of the continuum from Neal Katyal. Barr is another Toadie with something to hide ( perhaps Daddy's connection to Jeffrey Epstein), a liar and a criminal who has broken the law while AG, and who should be disbarred and imprisoned. This Administration is putrid from the head, down.
