The Rule of the Lawless

Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Tom Price abused his power to pump up the price of a stock he owned. FBI chief Comey abused his power to aid his favorite political candidate in the last presidential election.Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Nunes has been abusing his power to leak information to the target(Trump) of a House investigation.Trump's former National Security Adviser, Flynn was an (unregistered) agent of foreign powers acting in their best interest when he was supposed to keep America secure.Trump's pick for labor secretary, Andy Puzner was a wife beater, wage stealer and employed an undocumented immigrant. Donald Trump boasted about abusing his power as a wealthy man to grope women and stare at underage naked female flesh. All of them broke the law, the single law which now governs the Land of the Lawless--

They got caught!

That's right, gentle readers. There is only One Law in the Trump administration. Whatever you do, make sure that they can not prosecute you. Period.

Now consider what this means for our country. The man in charge, a self styled Bandit King and his Band of Merry Robbers will do literally anything they want to do, without regard for the law, the health and welfare of other people and the security of their country and the freedom of the press. Trump's Self Styled Outlaw base of methe abusing/tax cheating/wife beating/gun toting/cross burning/cable stealing and proud of it Americans will cheer every time their selected leader and his Band of Merry Robbers get away with criminal activity. The only time the Base will gets its panties in a twist is when they think that their Bandit King has cheated them---i.e. if they lose their health insurance or their job or their college scholarship. Because Trump promised the residents of Trailer Park USA that he would look after them (in the old fashioned Mafia don meaning of the words "look after them." He would take the money of hard working immigrants and Jews and Black and Natives and law abiding Americans and give it to lazy ass criminals. That is the American Dream According to Trump 2016. And in order to fulfill that promise, Trump's base knew--no, make that expected their man to break a whole lot of laws.

So, do not be surprised when they circle they wagons around their crime lord every time the press reveals that a new law has been broken by a new player. The Base is good with law breaking. They love their man for law breaking. He is doing all the things that they would do if they had the opportunity. He is their Bonnie and Clyde, Pretty Boy Floyd and Jesse James all rolled into one. And, if Trump ever decides to declare martial law to shut down the federal and state law enforcers who threaten his criminal empire, his Base will be out there with their guns, shooting and looting and saluting the Rule of the Lawless.

And no, this is not hyperbole. Check out these statistics on the rise of right wing hate crimes that has occurred in the last three months:


Two Indian immigrants in Kansas shot by a man hurling anti-Muslim insults. Bomb threats and vandalism menacing Jewish community centers. Children bullying classmates of color with pro-Trump taunts. With reports like these erupting across the country, you wouldn’t be alone in suspecting that America was becoming a more hateful place, or that our current administration might have something to do with it. But now we also have some statistics to illuminate the apparent feedback loop between Pennsylvania Avenue policies and Main Street violence.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) annual census of “extremist” groups, “The number of hate groups in the United States rose for a second year in a row in 2016 as the radical right was energized by the candidacy of Donald Trump.” The number of explicitly anti-Muslim groups has nearly tripled since 2015 alone, to over 100 nationwide. There has also been a spike in reported incidents of “hate” violence, including harassment and physical assault, alongside rising anti-Muslim hostile behavior and bullying in schools. Of nearly 1,100 “bias incidents,” SPLC reports, “37 percent of them directly referenced either President-elect Trump, his campaign slogans, or his infamous remarks about sexual assault.”

If you still find yourself puzzled by the strange, self defeating behavior of Trump's Base, I'll bet you have not read Bandits by Eric Hobsbawn. Well, you should. If you really, truly want to restore the rule of law to this country, you need to understand the criminals who have seized power. If you try to follow the traditional crime fighting rule book, these bandits will evade capture and prosecution every time as they retreat to the hills/desert/caves where their Base skulks, cheering them on.

1. And, if Trump ever decides to declare martial law

"And, if Trump ever decides to declare martial law to shut down the federal and state law enforcers who threaten his criminal empire, his Base will be out there with their guns, shooting and looting and saluting the Rule of the Lawless. "

Aka, the REAL purpose of the NRA. Sadly, that was embraced by a bunch of gun lovers here at DU, who got wild about getting into a shooting war with both deplorables and he feds in revenge for all that Dope and sex they thought was owed them.
