Trump uses every weapon in his arsenal....and more.

Last edited Thu Jul 11, 2019, 12:22 PM - Edit history (1)

He accepts no opinions or court decisions without a challenge. He is very adept at manipulating the judicial system. He has done it for decades.

If Congress doesn't appropriate money for a wall, then he will just get it somewhere else. He does not follow the rules or the laws. Those are for other people.

On top of it all, he is not ashamed to lie and deceive the people. He knows no shame. He creates the narrative and uses distractions and diversions to change the topic of conversation.

Democrats have been surprised by his lawlessness and recklessness. Trump's lies tend to keep them on the defensive most of the time. They subpoena people to appear before the Congress and the White House ignores them. They get nothing.

Democrats have been playing by the rules in the old Rulebook, when officials, even the President, respected the rule of law and the order within the institutions. Trump has crapped all over that.

They say, "when in Rome, do as the Romans do". For the Democrats to succeed, it is my opinion that they need to change their tactics. They need to be more offensive with their strategy. They need to use all the weapons in their arsenal. They have them but they have refused to use them. They are not fighting an opponent that respects them.

First of all, they need to make a decision about impeachment. The pressure will be great after the testimony of Robert Mueller next Wednesday. That is the strongest weapon in their arsenal. If they refuse to use it, they are surrendering their position to the megalomaniac in the White House, in hopes that the people will put them in power in the next election.

2. And ALL of it backed/supported by goddamn complicit Republicans

either tacitly by their silence, or openly aiding and abetting.

3. Well stated

An historical moment is quickly approaching and Speaker Pelosi will face the single greatest decision of her long career.

Democrats need to start fighting as fiercely as the Republicans have been doing for decades. Enough of backing away from the fights. Punch back, Democrats!

5. In my opinion, if Mueller contradicts Barr's conclusions.

Then, the very least that the Democrats can do is to impeach William Barr. He is not supposed to be the Attorney General for the President. He is supposed to represent the people of this country.

Then, on top of that, if Mueller proves him to be a liar and a deceiver, then the Democrats should proceed immediately to impeach him. It would also be proof that the Republicans have been lying all along, in their defense of Donald Trump. Their arguments are greatly weakened.

That would not mean that Donald Trump is off the hook. There are still a few loose ends within the court system that need to be resolved. The matter of defying subpoenas and court orders cannot be tolerated. If the Courts rule that Trump has stepped over the line, it is then time to call up impeachment orders on Donald J Trump.

4. Because Trump is rich, and white, and well connected,

he was allowed to break the law and manipulate the law.

9. Well there is that as well.

If Trump were a street thief, he would have been in jail long ago.

11. He is a POS POTUS.

And the GOP loves him.

Donald Trump: 'I could shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters'

Sociopath: noun a person with a personality disorder manifesting itself in extreme antisocial attitudes and behavior and a lack of conscience.

7. Well he's white and has connections

 

But his weath is balanced on unpaid debt and sketchy schemes usually involving other people’s money. He is the master of illusion.

8. And the media nourished that illusion to sell advertising.

Thus making the media complicit as well.

10. True words.

 

I can barely listen to the talking heads that fed us the Iraq War and this monster. They get what they want and then act surprised.

12. One team is breaking every rule with the enthusiastic participation of the referees

and the other team is still arguing about the propriety of lodging a protest

13. his most impoortant weapon is talk radio and it's invisible to dems. it enables

everything he does and russian trolls can piggyback it in supporting him and it fits right in right in withe the general republican bullshit

that way they can coordinate and collude in broad daylight. especially good if russians figured out how to feed limbaugh and other major talkers
