The truth is, someone was murdered. By whom and how are up to many perceptions.
Trump speaks truth to me.
And the ridiculous argument that Trump became president to enrich himself must be embarrassing for you to use. Even you could do better than that.

Hmm? Are you admitting to being a relativist?

I said, "I'm sure he loves America for the opportunities he's had with her." I said nothing about the presidency being a source of financial enrichment for him. There are some indications that winning the presidency might end up being a financial burden. Some speculate that he never thought (intended) to win. I doubt that. I think it was a fore drawn conclusion that Hillary Clinton would get the Democratic Party nomination. I think it not unreasonable to think that any Republican (except for Trump) would win against her. I think the election of President Trump will be Comey's legacy.

I voted for Trump because I thought he was funny, irreverent, blunt, tough, indefatigable, and above all, Trump loves America.

I too think President Trump is funny. When my family members tell me, "You're sooo funny", I reply, "Yes, but looks aren't everything." I don't mean to imply that I think President Trump is funny looking. I do think he looked better when he styled himself a Democrat, but that's just my personal prejudice.

I'm sure he loves America for the opportunities he's had with her.

Humor is anything that makes anyone laugh.

Is there anything that someone has not laughed at? Horace Walpole wrote, "The world is a comedy to those that think; a tragedy to those that feel." Do you think too much?

That’s the timbre of your retorts.

Hmm? I suppose by this, you are saying that my responses to your posts are childish. Perhaps. In our exchanges, like an inquisitive child, I have asked you several questions about your understanding of certain word definitions. And like a parent who doesn't know the answers you have tried diversion and distraction. Should I conclude that you have no understanding of the words you use, or perhaps your understanding is inchoate and with time and study you will be able to express it?

Mikeyavelli wrote:
Google furnishes facts, sometimes, so if it's facts you crave, Google it.

So I googled, "How does Mikeyavelli define humor and politically correct", and only found this:

Mikeyavelli wrote: ... I don't vote for a president based on his sense of humor. ... the right to speak his own mind, whether politically correct or not; IS free speech.

It seems Google cannot supply me with the facts on Mikeyavelli's definitions of humor and politically correct. Sad.

Mikeyavelli wrote:
I use facts at my leisure.

Do you mean, you only use facts when it's convenient for you, otherwise...what do you use?

Mikeyavelli wrote:
I won't be put to task.

So you don't feel obliged to explain what you mean when you say things, so we must be satisfied with whatever we conclude?

The bottom line is;
The House of Representatives was given the power to create /issue "money" Article 1; Section 8 of the Constitution.

There was a reason for that;
Huge power.
Huge responsibility.
Probably the most important task of the House of Representatives.
2 years to vote all of them out if the people decided they were doing a bad job.

There has been no amendment to the Constitution to amend that.

The Fed is a private corporation designed and owned by the banking families; (google; Bankers, Jekyll Island)

Huge power and huge wealth gained for those creators.
Our federal government now has a $22 Trillion "debt". Up a Trillion a year, for what should be the use of its own money. (United States Notes, instead of Federal Reserve Notes)

***************************************
On May 23, 1933, Congressman, Louis T. McFadden, brought formal charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank system, The Comptroller of the Currency and the Secretary of United States Treasury for numerous criminal acts, including but not limited to, CONSPIRACY, FRAUD, UNLAWFUL CONVERSION, AND TREASON. The petition for Articles of Impeachment was thereafter referred to the Judiciary Committee and has YET TO BE ACTED ON. So, this ELECTRONIC BOOKLET should be reprinted, reposted, set up on web pages and circulated far and wide.

Congressman McFadden's Speech
On the Federal Reserve Corporation
Quotations from several speeches made on the Floor of the House of Representatives by the Honorable Louis T. McFadden of Pennsylvania. Mr. McFadden, due to his having served as Chairman of the Banking and Currency Committee for more than 10 years, was the best posted man on these matters in America and was in a position to speak with authority of the vast ramifications of this gigantic private credit monopoly. As Representative of a State which was among the first to declare its freedom from foreign money tyrants it is fitting that Pennsylvania, the cradle of liberty, be again given the credit for producing a son that was not afraid to hurl defiance in the face of the money-bund. Whereas Mr. McFadden was elected to the high office on both the Democratic and Republican tickets, there can be no accusation of partisanship lodged against him. Because these speeches are set out in full in the Congressional Record, they carry weight that no amount of condemnation on the part of private individuals could hope to carry.
The Federal Reserve-A Corrupt Institution
"Mr. Chairman, we have in this Country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks, hereinafter called the Fed. The Fed has cheated the Government of these United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the Nation's debt. The depredations and iniquities of the Fed has cost enough money to pay the National debt several times over.
"This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of these United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through the defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Fed and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.
"Some people who think that the Federal Reserve Banks are United States Government institutions. They are private monopolies which prey upon the people of these United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers; foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers; and rich and predatory money lenders. ….. (For the whole expose – Google: Congressman McFadden Fed expose)
"These twelve private credit monopolies were deceitfully and disloyally foisted upon this Country by the bankers who came here from Europe and repaid us our hospitality by undermining our American institutions. Those bankers took money out of this Country to finance Japan in a war against Russia. They created a reign of terror in Russia with our money in order to help that war along. They instigated the separate peace between Germany and Russia, and thus drove a wedge between the allies in World War. They financed Trotsky's passage from New York to Russia so that he might assist in the destruction of the Russian Empire. They fomented and instigated the Russian Revolution, and placed a large fund of American dollars at Trotsky's disposal in one of their branch banks in Sweden so that through him Russian homes might be thoroughly broken up and Russian children flung far and wide from their natural protectors. They have since begun breaking up of American homes and the dispersal of American children. "Mr. Chairman, there should be no partisanship in matters concerning banking and currency affairs in this Country, and I do not speak with any.
"In 1912 the National Monetary Association, under the chairmanship of the late Senator Nelson W. Aldrich, made a report and presented a vicious bill called the National Reserve Association bill. This bill is usually spoken of as the Aldrich bill. Senator Aldrich did not write the Aldrich bill. He was the tool, if not the accomplice, of the European bankers who for nearly twenty years had been scheming to set up a central bank in this Country and who in 1912 has spent and were continuing to spend vast sums of money to accomplish their purpose.
"We were opposed to the Aldrich plan for a central bank. The men who rule the Democratic Party then promised the people that if they were returned to power there would be no central bank established here while they held the reigns of government. Thirteen months later that promise was broken, and the Wilson administration, under the tutelage of those sinister Wall Street figures who stood behind Colonel House, established here in our free Country the worm-eaten monarchical institution of the "King's Bank" to control us from the top downward, and from the cradle to the grave. ……..
PRESIDENT JACKSON'S TIME
"One of the greatest battles for the preservation of this Republic was fought out here in Jackson's time; when the second Bank of the United States, founded on the same false principles of those which are here exemplified in the Fed was hurled out of existence. After that, in 1837, the Country was warned against the dangers that might ensue if the predatory interests after being cast out should come back in disguise and unite themselves to the Executive and through him acquire control of the Government. …..
"The danger that the Country was warned against came upon us and is shown in the long train of horrors attendant upon the affairs of the traitorous and dishonest Fed. Look around you when you leave this Chamber and you will see evidences of it in all sides. This is an era of misery and for the conditions that caused that misery, the Fed are fully liable. This is an era of financed crime and in the financing of crime the Fed does not play the part of a disinterested spectator. … "The Fed became law the day before Christmas Eve, in the year 1913, and shortly afterwards, the German International bankers, Kuhn, Loeb and Co. sent one of their partners here to run it.
THE GREAT DEPRESSION
"Meanwhile and on account of it, we ourselves are in the midst of the greatest depression we have ever known. From the Atlantic to the Pacific, our Country has been ravaged and laid waste by the evil practices of the Fed and the interests which control them. At no time in our history, has the general welfare of the people been at a lower level or the minds of the people so full of despair. …. As Agents of the foreign central banks the Fed try by every means in their power to reduce our favorable balance of trade. (Remember; this warning was written in1934)
Both parties have put America in "debt" for $22 Trillion to the banking cabal/Federal Reserve bankers.
NOTICE: The Lame Stream Media, including FOX, ignores what McFadden warned us of; and now Congress, the President, and an ignorant apathetic public, are allowing the FED to continue the scam.
The bottom line is; br The House of Representative... (show quote)

Have you read:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Reserve

It's a long slog, but I thought worthwhile (especially the history section).

I also found this:

Regarding the structural relationship between the twelve Federal Reserve banks and the various commercial (member) banks, political science professor Michael D. Reagan has written that:[77]

... the "ownership" of the Reserve Banks by the commercial banks is symbolic; they do not exercise the proprietary control associated with the concept of ownership nor share, beyond the statutory dividend, in Reserve Bank "profits." ... Bank ownership and election at the base are therefore devoid of substantive significance, despite the superficial appearance of private bank control that the formal arrangement creates.

Did you consult with Pee Wee Herman to come up with that response?

For the life of me, I can't figure out why Pee Wee Herman came to you. Was it because Pee Wee had a word for the day in his playhouse (I vaguely recall something like that being part of his show (my spouse and I watched every Saturday morning (until CBS canceled it (because of his movie theater manipulations))))?

Or was it because my pestering you for definitions (so as to reveal your hidden understandings) seemed like Pee Wee's putting mirrors on the top of his shoes (so as to reveal Miss Vickie's hidden underthings)?

Again with the examples? Well lets google pedant:

pedant - a person who is excessively concerned with minor details and rules or with displaying academic learning.

Hmm, perhaps. But where one may disregard minor details, another might see an essential elements. Drain plug, why would my boat need that little thing? But officer, that red light was just a minor detail.

academic:
1. relating to education and scholarship.
2. not of practical relevance; of only theoretical interest.

learning: knowledge acquired through experience, study, or being taught

So,...excessively concerned...with displaying academic learning...?

Are you hinting that you are satisfied with displaying ignorance?
