Why cant Trump stop the printing of money or the spending?

The answer will haunt you!

Simple, really. The House of Representatives has the power of the purse. The Office of the President holds no sway over spending or budgeting beyond making recommendations to Congress; who may or may not act on said recommendations. Here's the kicker: The President has no power to alter or adjust spending or the lack thereof. That's what Congress does. The Office of the President puts acts of Congress into actionable statutes. Without the statutes, the laws are toothless. Without the laws (acts of Congress), the statutes cannot be written. This is why the spending will continue until Congress has its credit cards revoked. The President is powerless to stop it.

The printing of money is neither under the purview of the President nor the Houses of Congress. That's the function of the Federal Reserve System, a privately-owned banking cartel solely in business to 'make money'- literally. Since the passing of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, this cartel has had the sole (legal) power to print money and give it to Congress to spend how they wish. Congress, in their turn, have made it illegal to refuse to accept these debt-based, fiat generated promissory notes by passing the legal tender laws.

The Office of the President has no power to reign in the spending or to remove the Federal Reserve from the position of 'lender of last resort', hence the President will not be joining the party anytime soon.

Feeling 'haunted' yet?

There was a book on that very subject made the NY Times bestseller list a few months ago. 266 pages of blank paper. Nope. This is for real...

Slavery? Again? Seriously? What will it take to drag you kicking and screaming into the 21st. century? Newsflash! THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS NOT ABOUT SLAVERY!

I do not arm myself in order to keep my slaves in line. I arm myself in order to mount a formidable defense should my government take it into their heads to overstep their authority and attempt to separate me from my natural rights. One of those rights just happens to be that of self-defense. Should words fail, I still have the ability to apply force when it matters most.

There is no mention of democracy in the constitution because the founders believed that only the elites were qualified to run government and so believed aristocrats, men of property should run government they regarded democracy as mobocracy and they wanted to be aristocrats free from the English Monarchy but aristocrats in the new country

Bzzzt! Incorrect. Here's a rundown of how it all shakes out:

Is that Colorado Springs? Been there, did that. Right down in the shadow of Pike's Peak. There's a bar called Benny's in the middle of town. Loved it. Even bought the tee-shirt. I was working as a field engineer at the time, had a call at Cheyenne Mountain, but that's another story...

His budget cuts the EPA's office of science and technology in half. His health care bill is a $765 billion tax cut for couples making over $250,000 over 10 years. I don't see a thing in any EO's that addresses the problems of the working class

Maybe you should look again, this time open your eyes and take the blinkers off.

Alan Dershowitz questions Russia counsel: Where's the crime? In essence, show me the law:

Then he goes on to provide a pretty good explanation of why this is a non-issue:

"If you want to get to the truth you appoint an independent fact-finding commission".

"I think this is much ado about nothing".

Al Capone was good at making a lot of money all it takes is devious mind.

Al Capone was a two bit street thug who would have stayed that way if not for the introduction of prohibition. He got lucky and still couldn't keep it together well enough to stay out of prison. It was public opposition to prohibition that made his fortune, and most certainly not any kind of intelligent application of good business sense. By what logic can you assume to compare the President of the United States to... that?

The key to Trumps successful Real Estate business was the ability to negotiate big tax abatements from the politicians and then making large contributions to their political campaigns.

So let me get this straight: Instead of paying taxes, Donald Trump paid politicians instead. That's interesting. In either case, he is paying out, whether to the IRS or the politicians in Congress, the money is no longer there for his use. How on Earth is that helping his business? What difference does it make who he paid out to if the money is no longer of any use to him? In what universe does that make any sense?

The policy of you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours

It's called 'symbiosis'. There's examples of it throughout nature. Bees and flowers, for instance. Bees collect pollen, and at the same time they pollinate the flower. Without pollination, the resulting seeds would be sterile. This is generally referred to a 'mutual' symbiosis. In another example, the clownfish feeds on small invertebrates that otherwise have potential to harm the sea anemone, and the fecal matter from the clownfish provides nutrients to the sea anemone. The clownfish is additionally protected from predators by the anemone's stinging cells, to which the clownfish is immune. The clownfish also emits a high pitched sound that deters butterfly fish, which would otherwise eat the anemone.

So, yeah, you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours...

As citizens of this democracy, you are the rulers and the ruled, the law-givers and the law-abiding, the beginning and the end. Adlai E. Stevenson

And there we see a solid indication as to why he was so unelectable. He had no grasp of the American political system. If he had spent more time learning about the system he was so wanting to guide and influence, he would have understood that the United States are not a democracy but a collection of independent republics. Guess we dodged yet another bullet there...

get your fact's straight none of all those statements is true you are in denial

Then show me. I'll pay $10,000 per instance for every mention you can find of the word 'democracy' in the Constitution of 1789. Go for it. There is no time limit, no special reporting requirements. Just let me know where you see it and I'll pop a cool $10 grand into your Paypal account. Per mention. It's that simple. No strings, no small print. No 'what ifs', what you see is what you get. I can't make it any plainer than that.
