It isn’t clear how much longer Republicans will allow Trump to undermine the United States Constitution, but his latest threat to rewrite a portion of the nation’s founding document to suit his xenophobic and racist tendencies amounts to an honest-to-dog constitutional crisis.
This is his first real go at reality as an adult, and he's way too emotionally incapable of making this transition. It won't be easy for him. Of course, Trump isn't going to go silently. But go he will.
Although at the time of this writing there is no for-sure, definitive justification for celebrating the result of the election, there is no better time to state emphatically that if former Vice-President Joseph Biden is declared the official victor, America’s social woes will not disappear.Simply put: the nation’s nightmare will not end when, and if, Joe Biden officially wins the election.
On this day, November 7th, 2020, each and every one of you who voted, called, canvassed, talked to friends and neighbors, wept and worried over the demise of our precious country, each and every one of you have made a difference. You made this happen. This is your victory.
The following is a PoliticusUSA editorial by Editor in Chief Sarah Jones.
President-elect Joe Biden received more votes than any other presidential candidate in history, but Democrats didn’t expand the House as predicted or take back the Senate (pending Georgia run offs). This has led to endless “Democrats in disarray” hot takes. Yes, we have just narrowly escaped the sweaty clutches of a wannabe autocrat and already the press is concerned about Democrats.
At the rate Republicans, led by Trump, are attempting to stop voting, it is glaringly apparent they hate democracy nearly as much as they detest the U.S. Constitution. When Donald Trump refused to say if he would allow a peaceful transfer of power if he does not win re-election, it should have sent a shockwave of outrage throughout the population; that it did not informs that Americans are well aware that Republicans do not subscribe to the notion of representative democracy.
No sane humanremotely believes dirty Don Trump cares one iota about America, its people, or the democracy the rest of the world respected just four years ago. Trump is simply un-American.
Although Trump epitomizes the word un-American, the fact that he has significant support from people who claim to be “real Americans” is very telling about their lack of devotion to this country’s ideals,their fellow citizens, the U.S. Constitution or democracy. Trump acolytes are the antithesis of real Americans – exactly like their demigod Trump.
Around the world there are several nationwith brutally authoritarian governments that embrace the concept of imposing religion to play a major roleof public life. It is what is known as theocracy and evangelical fanatics are a step closer to imposing their extremist vision of social conservatism on every aspect of all Americans’ daily life.
There are three words that political pundits and commentators have used ad nauseam since the day after dirty Don Trump’s very poorly-attended inauguration – “unprecedented and wrong.” It is as true a description of this authoritarian administration as anything, and yet each time it is uttered it explains a worse Trump atrocity. This past week was no different.
This past week Americans learned that their nation is beyond being on the verge of becoming a banana republic and that their representative democracy is failing; if it is not already functionally dead.
No sane human being believes Trump and his corrupt administration care about law and order; they care about frightening white people. However, during the RNC this week the lying hypocrite Mike Pence asserted that the upcoming election is about law and order.
There was an unexpected, but fairly important, revelation this past week that very few media outlets made a big deal out of – and as one straight-talking Vice President once said, this revelation was “a big f*cking deal.”
Americans have died needlessly as a result of a malicious narcissist’s lust for power, and if this country’s Legislative and Judicial Branch were not controlled by corrupt Republicans, deadly Don Trump would be in serious legal jeopardy.
Even while dirty Don Trump is being condemned for abusing American citizens exercising their constitutional right to protest, he levied sanctions on China for abusing its citizens for protesting civil rights abuses.
With ardent GOP support Trump has spent three-and-a-half years decimating all parts of the federal government. Now his attention is fulfilling the GOP’s decades-long goal of destroying elderly Americans’ retirement and health insurance programs by starving them of funding.
At the beginning of Trump’s plague in America, the “pro-life” GOP faithful claimed it was patriotic to sacrifice the lives of America’s elderly population for Trump’s re-election. Now those same “pro-life” cretins want to sacrifice the lives of American children to help re-elect Trump.
When Trump appointed anti-public school lobbyist Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary, he made it abundantly clear that he detests America’s public education system.
On Friday Trump ordered Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin to review American universities’ tax-exempt status after he threatened to cutoff federal funding to any schools that refuse to reopen despite the virulent Trump plague ravaging the nation.
America under Trump is a badly failing nation in every conceivable measure. That being the tragically sad case, there is no reason whatsoever to celebrate America in its current failing state; anyone doing so is either a Russian spy, a religious malcontent, or a Trump supporter.
Trump is determined to grant evangelical bigots the religious freedom to legally discriminate against LGBTQ+ people, and during Pride Month he used the Health and Human Services Department to do the religious right’s dirty work.
After suffering three-and-a-half years of Trump’s flagrant criminality, it is safe to assert that he has no use for law and order or America’s criminal justice system. However, he loves criminals, traitors, and anyone carrying out extra judicial punishment; especially if they punish in the name of racial purity, religious bigotry and Donald J. Trump.
