Our Deranged Denial of Truth
America's clear and present danger is we do not know fact from fiction. The polls for the impeachment have remained the same for the last months. Even with the abundance of new evidence of Presidential abuse of powers and obstruction of Congress no political change deeply troubles me. We are on the edge whether we value integrity.
Thank goodness my father has passed since he spent four decades with the Congressional Research Service providing non partisan informational support. Now we are in a perilous time for both our democracy and civil liberties. Fact, fiction and the law are in jeopardy due to our current trial. Also this is happening in addressing climate change. The Republican allegiance to party over country supports this deranged denial of the truth. My list below was expanded due to a Doug Mills/The New York Times 9/19 article (https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opinion/donald-trump-vs-the-united-states-of-america/) American integrity is now in question. Are we able to look the other way to this bribery and his obstructing justice? Just the fact that President Trump (DT) dis-informs. The Washington Post reported 13,435 false or misleading claims in 993 days (Fact Checker October 9, 2019) or an average of about 13.5 per day. Trump's both profit and non-profit businesses shows how he deals. His university and charity have been deemed illegal. I predict in years to come we will see the extent of the President's crimes compounded by his troubling psychological disorder. Just DT's deeds reveal enough damning evidence; *DT's Secretary of State, Attorney General and personal lawyer are being investigated for illegal affairs. His six closest advisors are now in jail since his election. * President Trump’s “A Team” political appointments turnover is 80% as of Nov. 22, 2019. Such appointees, as National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, John Boltn and others reveal the shortest-service tenures in the history of their respective offices. *DT freely admits his crimes however does not realize what he does as illegal. * Of the 3,500 suits, Trump or one of his companies were plaintiffs in 1,900; defendants in 1,450; and bankruptcy, third party, or other in 150. Trump was named in at least 169 suits in federal court. *DT has influenced foreign leaders to interfere in the 2020 American presidential election. It is clearly collaborated and emitted by him, his lawyer Rudy Giuliani and Chief of Staff Mulvaney. * DT has asked several foreign countries to intervene in the 2016 and 2020 presidential election. * DT has shared classified information to foreign officials. He has made numerous cell phone calls easily intercepted by foreign intelligence. * DT publicly undermines America intelligence agents and FBI while standing next to a hostile foreign autocrat. * DT instructs underlings to break the law and then offers to pardon them in tweets. * He threatens a key Federal whistle blower with bodily harm and other Congressional witnesses obstructing the Congressional impeachment process. * He hired a national security adviser who he knew had worked as a foreign lobbyist. * Most of DT's appointments have conflicts of interest. * DT encourages foreign leaders to benefit him and his family by staying at his hotels. *DT refers to murderous dictators who violate every type of human rights as good guys. * DT has alienated America’s closest allies and recent videos of the NATO leaders mocking and laughing of him behind his back * DT tells new lies virtually every day — about the economy, voter fraud, even the weather. He lied to the American people about his company’s business dealings in Russia. * Instead of leading DT spends thousands of hours watching TV and days on end staying at his resorts. He doesn't take daily intelligence briefings and is ignorant of what's going on since he's information all comes from Fox News. * DT often declines to read briefing books or perform other basic functions of a president’s job. * DT has aides, as well as members of his own party in Congress behind his back state DT is unfit for office. * DT undermine any unbiased source of information that he does not like, including judges, scientists, journalists, election officials, the F.B.I., the C.I.A., the Congressional Budget Office and the National Weather Service. * He has tried to influence the Chairman of the Federal Reserve into lowering interest rates. * DT insulted a judge saying he could not be objective because of his Mexican heritage. * DT obstructs justice by trying to influence an investigation into his presidential campaign. * DT bullies the disabled and unfortunate. Even former prisoners of war he berated John McCain. * DT violated federal law by directing his lawyer to pay $280,000 hush funds to cover up two apparent extramarital affairs. * DT made his fortune partly through wide-scale financial miss dealings. * DT has refused to release his tax returns after promising on numerous occasions he would. *Not only does he obstruct justice he claims everything as a Witch Hunt since he's the victim in his deep state conspiracy theories. Finally, just follow DT's tweets and Fox News interviews. He incriminates himself all the time while his base cares not. Never in our country's history has there's been so much delusion, confusion and dismay. Truth and the American way is on a fragile edge.
