The below is an opinion/viewpoint posted on the internet. As it concerns our president, I know it flies in the face of many good people I have come to know and respect on OPP. Yet, I admit to agreeing with much, if not most, of what the writer has to say. I also accept that those same good people will question this evaluation of the man just as I often question theirs. C'est la vie. "I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, (or) in philosophy as cause for withdrawing from a friend." --- Thomas Jefferson

When it comes to the divisiveness of today's politics, I am beginning to think that the Russians that spent so much money and effort to swing the election to put this fox ( aka Trump) in the hen-house…must have spent a goodly amount of money on a roomful of social psychologists also.

They want Trump to call American laws that have stood for 250 years…unlawful…. and he has brought that idea into question many times.

They know he is un-educated, so he will know nothing of American or global history, laws or processes. As a classic, classless blowhard, he will loudly deride what he does not understand. He has done just that with every legitimate American institution that we have trusted since 1776.

They expect Trump to create divisiveness in the people by using politics as a wedge. Again, Trump plays right into their efforts by telling lies to a certain sector of the American populace who can identify with his lies and in turn becomes a cult following. Those that remember the Jones cult in Guyana will identify with what Trump is doing. His lies are so believable to these poor people, there is no other truth but Trump.
They know Trump can talk a line of BS and outright lies that sounds so very convincing. They know he has spent a lifetime conning everyone possible in business and life. No one will know what to expect him to start blabbering on or lying about next which will sow never-ending chaos. So it has come to pass.

That he is so self-serving and greed-driven this will conflict with what we expect of a fair president and that this will cause very questionable behavior on his and his major republican supporter's part.

They know that a segment of the Republican Party, driven by the same greed as Trump's, will join him, defend him and push him further with whispers in his ear. They will use him as a malleable chump to destruct parts of our laws and land so they can put their fingers in the biggest jackpot ever offered to them, the taxpayers of America.

They could not have chosen a better person of the job of taking American values apart, denying the freedoms we have enjoyed since the Bill of Rights was signed or to do a good job of backstabbing the very people that he claims to work for. Trump has spent a good portion of his presidency working with his political and financial backers dismantling the law and economic structure of our land so that they can reap the economic benefits of free tax money. It's all there in black and white cross-indexable print.

His ego is so powerful, his empathy so lacking, that he feels nothing as he hugs the American flag one moment to show his supporters that he loves the land, then sits down and signs an executive order that rolls back a regulation that will poison thousands of his own people the very next moment. (the dumping of toxins into the waterways rollback, etc.)

He will stand in front of thousands of his supporters, talk (lie) for an hour about how (bigly) America will be under his direction. A virtual sea of red MAGA hats will cheer him on, the adulation washed over him as a wave of ‘we love you Trump’, ‘ you're our god because you care about us little people’ and he will exhort them to ‘be patriots’ and ‘be his people’. He and his twisted egotism feeds off these poor folks grand dreams and expectations. He plays them like the proverbial fiddle. The very next day, he signs a budget that was a direct attack on those very same people that cheered him on, voted for him, thinks of him as a god among men. He and his helpers signed a proposal that would take huge amounts of food from the mouths of his own support base , their children, their parents. He signed that proposal that would take away many needed schoolteacher and after-school programs, indeed the whole public education system and put it directly into the hands of his friends in the private education sector. They would not even be able to afford to go to school. They would remain ignorant, which is right where he and his republican backers want them.

Trump's people (seem to) have no idea, they don’t even seem to care.

That is how bad Trump can eat souls like some kid eats candy.

If there is one thing about America today that can truly be called fake, it is Donald Trump.

Tlaib and Omar Co-sponsor Bill to Recognize Muslim Holidays as Federal Holidays

Freshman Congressmen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have wasted no time in shaking up the US House of Representatives. Early Friday morning, Omar and Tlaib introduced a bill adding Islamic holidays to the Federal calendar which has traditionally only recognized American holidays.

Omar and Tlaib's bill would add Eid Al-Fitr at the end of Ramadan and the four-day-long celebration of Eid Al-Adha to the list of Federally recognized holidays, potentially granting reasons to banks, schools, and other businesses to remain closed for five additional days per year.

Omar and Tlaib justified their work as making America more inclusive of it's Muslim-American population and moving us further away from our history as a primarily Judaeo-Christian nation. The women are also considering a last minute addition to their bill that would allow for regular Salah time breaks for school children and workers as well as a designated area in each public business where Muslims could perform Salah, the five daily prayers plus the Friday prayer, unmolested.

The House of Representatives Majority Leader, Steny Hoyer, is reviewing the legislation and determining if he can get the votes to pass the bill. Anonymous sources say Omar and Tlaib are threatening court action ifHoyer should choose not to acquiesce to their demands for immediate vote and consideration on the grounds of religious discrimination.

We predict that the next thing we can expect from this pair of women will be Sharia Law appearing as a rider to their legislation. Perhaps they should have stayed in the countries that they came from if they enjoyed Islamic culture so much!

FYI - There are now 10 Federal Holidays; only Christmas day is related to religion. Some state and local jurisdictions also include Good Friday and/or Easter Monday. The idea of mandating regular Salah time breaks and a designated area in each public business and school for daily prayers may be a good idea - provided that it is also extended to Christians and Jews that are now prohibited from such practice.
It's just a matter of time, Christmas will be no more, as well Easter, the Muslims need not Thanksgiving as well.

One more comment: Ever since Rhett Butler uttered the words "Frankly my dear I don't give a damn" in 1939, this nation has been sliding downhill. Slowly at first, but the rapidity picked up in the '50s and '60s as the liberals took over indoctrination of the children. I'm fearful that by 2039, one century later, the United States of America will be unrecognizable as it is known today.

As a former U.S. Army Intelligence Analyst, and a battalion security manager who processed security clearances, I am awfully curious how this open Communist TRAITOR to America named John Brennan ever received a security clearance. I am also VERY curious why Barrack Hussein appointed such a treasonous Communist to be the Director of the C.I.A.

To obtain a Top-Secret security clearance with Secret Compartmentalized Information (SCI) access, which would be the baseline for a C.I.A. director, and having voted for the Communist Party in the past SHOULD get your clearance denied quickly! It is an absolute wonder of how John Brennan, who proudly voted for a Communist Party candidate in 1974, obtained a legitimate security clearance.

The next bit of wonder, is the fact that Barrack Hussein appointed this subversive traitor to America as the director of the C.I.A. The truth behind this is a disturbing truth, which is that Obama himself is a radical Communist who was implementing Marxist policies in America, and he knew John Brennan would play ball with the progressive (aka Marxist) agenda.

This clearly explains why Barrack Hussein Obama specifically appointed a former Communist as the Director of the C.I.A. because he is a radical Communist himself. There are many more resources which outline this FACT, and if you open your eyes you can see that Obama changed the Democratic Party into a group of seditious radical Communists. The Barrack Obama administration, including John Brennan (and others), was a Presidential administration of radical Marxists who were intentionally destroying the United States! We need to have military tribunals IMMEDIATELY against these subversive, seditious, treasonous TRAITORS to America!

“The unhinged criticism is also hilariously rich, given that John Brennan, who supported the Soviet-controlled American Communist Party, meets the textbook definition of a useful idiot for the Russians. At the height of the Cold War, he was rooting for the Reds, casting his vote in 1976 for Gus Hall, the American Communist Party’s presidential candidate. If anyone is adept at serving as a dupe for the Russians, it is John Brennan. To paraphrase John Kerry, he was for them before he was against them.” (Nuemayer, 2018)

These Leftists here in America are violating multiple federal statutes simply with the agenda they are trying to push, and they rabid disgust for the duly elected President of the United States. The Barrack Hussein administration turned the American government into a criminal operation aligned with Marxist beliefs. There is NO REASON why these CRIMINALS can’t be brought in front of a military tribunal and tried for ACTUAL treason! It is disgusting that the REAL treasonous traitors to America are somehow allowed to go onto television and advocate the overthrow of a duly elected President, and claim HE Is the treasonous traitor. These people need be locked up IMMEDIATELY!!!

The American people are FED-UP from having to watch this play out, and John Brennan, James Clapper, Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch, James Comey, Peter Strozk and many others need to be arrested IMMEDIATELY!!! Enough of this open sedition to America on our television networks and in our newspapers. The Barrack Hussein administration attempted to make America Communist, and they are FREAKING OUT because President Trump is trying to make America great again.

May 1st, 2019, By David Frum

To date, the cover-up has worked about as well as President Donald Trump could have hoped.

Almost four years after Trump declared his campaign for the presidency, and more than 30 months since he won that office, he has successfully kept secret almost all the things he wished to keep secret. How much debt does he owe, and to whom? How much of his income derives from people who do business with the U.S. government? How much of his income derives from foreign sources? Who are his business partners, and do any of them present ethical or national-security concerns.

These basics of post-Watergate official disclosure have all been suppressed. Incredibly, even after the delivery of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, the American people still have only the haziest idea of Trump’s business connections to Russia and Russians. Do those connections cast any light on why the Russian government was so eager to have him elected president in 2016? Perhaps that information is held somewhere within the Department of Justice or the FBI, but citizens and taxpayers can only guess.

If Trump has his way, the secrecy will continue for a lot longer. In the past few days, he’s filed suit to prevent his bankers from complying with a congressional subpoena. His secretary of the Treasury has defied a never-before-questioned law and refused to surrender the president’s tax returns to the House Ways and Means Committee. His attorney general mischaracterized the Mueller report, as Mueller complained in writing, and now has operational control over the ongoing criminal prosecutions bequeathed to the Justice Department.

Trump’s trouble is that the dike is sprouting more leaks than he has fingers with which to plug the expanding trickles. Two federal judges, one in Maryland and one in the District of Columbia, have approved lawsuits based on the U.S. Constitution’s emoluments clause demanding information about Trump’s revenues from foreign-government entities. Those lawsuits—one filed by congressional Democrats, the other by attorneys general for the state of Maryland and the District of Columbia—now proceed to two different appellate courts, the Fourth Circuit and the D.C. Circuit. At this rate, an emoluments case could reach the Supreme Court before the 2020 election.

The dispute over the president’s tax returns has not yet triggered a judicial process. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin must first decide whether he will risk a contempt-of-Congress citation and shoulder personal legal risk. If the tax-return demand ends up in court, we’ll witness the unusual spectacle of a Republican administration inviting judges to reverse decades of conservative legal theory and to defy the clear letter of the law in favor of nebulous concepts of privacy.

For half a century, conservative lawyers have mocked the 1965 birth-control case in which Justice William O. Douglas created a new constitutional right to privacy out of the “penumbras” formed by “emanations” of the Bill of Rights. Perhaps Douglas, like Julian Assange before him, will now transition from conservative villain to Trumpist hero.

The law very much favors Congress in the subpoena of Trump’s bankers. Congressional subpoena power extends to any subject on which Congress can constitutionally legislate, among other realms, as the Supreme Court has affirmed again and again. It’s not necessary that Congress actually have any legislation in mind, so long as it potentially could. The Supreme Court explained in 1975: “The wisdom of congressional approach or methodology is not open to judicial veto … Nor is the legitimacy of a congressional inquiry to be defined by what it produces. The very nature of the investigative function—like any research—is that it takes the searchers up some ‘blind alleys’ and into nonproductive enterprises. To be a valid legislative inquiry there need be no predictable end result.”

Meanwhile, Attorney General William Barr has just advanced a likely doomed new legal theory that a president is entitled to shut down any investigation that he feels is unfair to him: “The president does not have to sit there constitutionally and allow a special-counsel investigation to run its course. The president could terminate the proceeding and it would not be a corrupt intent, because he was being falsely accused.” It’s an argument for total impunity based purely on political power—and for that reason will gain no favor from either Congress or courts.

Perhaps the Trump administration hopes that it can run out the clock on the bank subpoenas and the other matters, too. But so many clocks are ticking over so many inquiries into so many areas of potential scandal. Can they all be postponed and postponed past 2020? For a president with many guilty secrets, everything turns on the ability to insert delay after delay before ultimate legal defeat. It’s not a great plan. It’s liable to go wrong, maybe catastrophically wrong. At this point, though, it’s all he’s got.

Hey, you have that right, and do you understand the part where the executive doesn't get to refuse to comply with that is a function of one of the branches? Did Obama or Hillary ever tell congress or the senate to shove it when they suffered through endless Benghazi hearings that cost over $50 million and never produced a shred of evidence to prove crimes?

I'm glad you allow me my right to speak.I don't understand your statement about the executive doesn't

Democrats want Barr out not because he has done anything wrong, but because they are afraid he may do something right. He has shown he cannot be intimidated by them and they are afraid he will launch a true investigation into the Russian collusion and other matters involving Trump's predecessor and his cohorts. That is why Pelosi is afraid to start impeachment proceedings. She knows Trump will respond and she is afraid of what will come out of it.

Barr is already looking into the collusion lies and much more.There are a lot of people packing for a long trip to a federal pen for an extended stay

I think one of the most important articles in our constitution was to create three co-equal branches of our government.(EXECUTIVE) (HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES) and the (SENATE) giving congress the ability to do oversight on the executive branch. That prevents our president from creating a dictatorship.

But Trump has broken the glass ceiling and will not allow anybody in his administration to testify under oath with Congress. He allowed Barr to testify in the Senate because the hearing was controlled by Lindsay Graham a Trump puppet. But Trump will not allow Barr to testify in the democratic controlled house. Now the right wing thinks this is okay.

Now let’s go back to Obama when Republicans controlled the house and senate just in the Benghazi hearings there was over 92 subpoenas issued by republicans every subpoena was addressed and submitted to Congress, Clinton spent over 19 hours with the Republican controlled house and senate and testified under oath and she agreed to testify. Every Obama official that Congress called to testify came in willingly without a subpoena. ( CAN YOU IMAGINE THE REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS IF OBAMA BLOCKED ALL HIS CURRENT AND PAST ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS FROM TESTIFYING ON A CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT HEARINGS). OMG CAN YOU SAY CIVIL WAR.

We all know now the Russians did hack our election. After over two years of an investigation as to how it happened and who assisted who in the hacking and not allow the lead investigator to testify is absurd. So Trump found a few cronies to do everything possible to bury the investigation and put out a 100% false narrative of what’s in the Muellar report and refuse to release all the evidence as to how Trumps cronies came to that conclusion.

Good luck Trump supporters the truth will come out eventually.
