United States of America: National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) letter to U.S. House of Representatives (18.02.2022)
I write what I like.
“Establishes that Presidential records automatically transfer into the legal custody of the Archivist as soon as the President leaves office” (Presidential Records Act (PRA) of 1978).
Former President Donald J. Trump who is living lavish in Mar-a-Lago in Florida post-Presidency. Has clearly not followed protocol or cared about the legalities of his public office as a Head of State or as the President. This is with his role as the Executive and public office he needs to national archive documents and logs, which should have been public in the first place.
We know that President Trump and Trump Organization prefers secrecy, and not really preferred transparency. That’s why every document or every investigation into has been stifled and taken to court to release documents from him. There is prolonged and used the courts to keep information away from the ones whose investigating him. This has been done so often and is common practice, that subpoenas never been respected and the investigators has to challenge him in court to get it. Therefore, recent news aren’t shocking.
However, for a man running a campaign of scaremongering and the hypocrisy of him is outrageous. As the former President is now revealed to shred documents, flush them in the toilets of the White House and taking 15 boxes of valuable documents after the term of office was over. While that all is Super-Bad…. there is reports that the National Archives are looking for more lost documents.
This is really showing how blatant he is and how reckless he is. As he knows this is wrong and the Whole White House staff should have known this. As the call-logs and documents has to achieved and kept after White House protocol. This is notes, working papers, drafts and whatever that the Trump Presidency was working on.
The Executive and President should know this as these documents becomes historical documents and proof of his term. We know his a crook and a dishonest actor when he does this. He brought with him the whole office without delivering what he was legally bound to give to the authorities as his term was over. If any other man had done this… he would have gone a rampage and called them something foolish.
“My mansion shit, moved in the West wing” (Tony Yayo – ‘G-Shit’ 2005).
That’s why Trump shouldn’t talk about Hilary Clinton’s emails, which was investigated by FBI. The same has to happen to Trump. His affairs in the White House and post-Office shows that he wanted to hide information and documents that could prove criminal behaviour or illegal activities. Because, why else would he breach protocol and be possibly litigated for not leaving it to the National Archives.
He shouldn’t have taken all of these documents, which is a lot. We can just wonder his hiding. As we have seen a planned executive order for him to order the military to takeover the voting machines post-election. Therefore, he knows perfectly well that these documents could hide skeletons, which shows his pure fascism and planned efforts to overthrow the Biden administration before it even started. This is why he took it with him to Florida.
Nobody destroys documents or shreds them, because his innocent. That is done because you know something is wrong and his hiding something. Just like Trump claimed about the deleted and hidden email of Clinton. It is not like this is any different and is a large scale. This isn’t a private server, but supposed public documents, which his bound by law to give to the National Archives. That was clearly to much to ask from Trump. He cannot even do that… and everyone else had to since Ronald Reagan. Therefore, all of the appointed staff, high ranking officials and the Trump administration should know about these statutes and stipulations. However, they clearly didn’t care or was afraid to say “no” to him. As his entitlement and larger-than-life ego is making him believe he could get away with it.
That’s why he even tried for so long… to use Executive Privilege as a Former President. Trump is that sort of fella and he tried to keep these things secret. Where he took top secret document and confidential ones. He has the nerve to run a campaign on Clinton’s emails, but is much worse himself and this should be indicted, charged and give the man the bracelets. As whistleblowers leaking documents like these are rotting in jail.
The former President should have the Department of Justice litigating him and it’s about time. They need to make an example of him. When they have gone after Edward Snowden and Reality Winner. They should go after Trump who took White House documents with him and he could have easily leaked them like these fellows. Peace.
We have now for some time seen the real deal of the Biden Administration. The people have been appointed and hired. The Democratic President Joe Biden who took over after a shambolic and snake-oil salesman in Donald J. Trump. Biden had the world ahead of him and with some promises of changes during the campaigns. However, the U.S. is more of the same and not a vast change from the Trump administration.
The U.S. government is still bombing Somalia. Selling weapons and arms to Middle East allies who fights wars in Yemen and elsewhere. The U.S. is still caging and detaining asylum-seekers. The President is maybe not crying foul and wanting a wall. However, the detention-centres are still a viable industry and the President has not shut this down. Neither has he address the ruthless and injustice served by the ICE agents across the Republic.
Biden is clearly lukewarm coffee. He is not hot coffee or cold coffee. No, his the boring and adherent liquid you drink in need, but not because you enjoys it. It is a tragic blend and misuse of good coffee. As you let it become lukewarm and that’s why it’s not a tasty cup of coffee.
President Biden is just that. This is why he cannot forgive student debt by Executive Order. Neither could he or his administration configure the relief for millions of people as the pandemic and lack of steady salaries possibly could evict millions of citizens from their landlords. He has just suspended the payments and the rent will sooner or later haunt the tenants who has to either save or move out at one point. While they will struggle to find another home or flat to live in.
President Biden has also made it impossible to find a measure to make Medicare for All a thing. Neither opening up for a public option. Therefore, the man who was beside Obama with Obamacare and additional measures with Medicaid. The current administration is even more mediocre with that after years of dismantling this by the Trump Administration.
Biden and his government is just a light-Republican edition. There is little to no real changes to see. Especially not from a far. The so-called “progressive” representatives and senators in the Democratic Party haven’t done much either. They are nice in the media and making statements in the press. However, they are not amending laws or policies which follows their “progressive” ideals. It is more of a posture and selling out to the rest of the Corporate democrats. Therefore, there is little difference between the “moderates” in the Democratic Party and the Republican counterparts.
This is why Biden bipartisan works makes sense. As the Democratic Party and their works are so much alike the Republican. Only difference is the party and the donors. The Democratic Party have the majority, but by what they have achieved. It doesn’t look like it. The Republican party is still in sort of control and giving the Democratic party a majority seems like a failure. Since they are not using it or trying to do what they promised.
Biden and the Democratic party will suffer and possible be hit in the mid-terms. That’s because they had the majority, but acted as a minority. They didn’t even try or use their authority for common sense polices. Policies that is popular by the general public and across the board. Yes, the donors and the budget would be bloated. However, it is not like the previous administration cared about that. The fiscal responsibility shouldn’t only be held by Democrats while Republicans can spend like drunk sea-men. This is why Biden could have spent vast funds on student debt and Medicare, which would have made legendary. However, he rather be a moderate and corporate politician who could easily be branded with an elephant instead of the donkey. Peace.
The Tea Party Movement of 2009 eas an reaction the Democratic Party and the Presidency of Barrack Obama. Which ushered in a movement and aspiring leadership within the Republican Party. That in the end gave a platform to the likes of President Donald J. Trump that thrives on these populist and racists acts.
That President Trump is soon over, but his “Trumpism” and his theories will live on. This man will try to thrive on it and get monetary gains on it too. That is what he does. This is his next racket. Where he uses the political platform and his “legacy” to build on the “America First” and the MAGA crowds. To find ways to make himself viable. Create narratives and even use fiction to gain momentum.
That is why they are still forging the narrative of a stolen election. Continuing with endless law-suits that ends with nothing. The Trump Administration is trying to configure ways to earn funds, build a organization and find backers. Which will give them funds and capital post-Presidency. Since, the President needs it with defaulting debt, criminal cases and lack of good lawyers to carry the pending trials after the loss of “Executive Privilege” and leverage of the White House.
This is why Trump will build on the nostalgia, the ideals of White AmeriKKKa and the “forgotten classes” of society. Where he can bring middle America and sprint into the White Supremacy and ideologies, where he still resembles their “dear leader”. That is why his tried every trick in the book to overturn an election. Just to ensure the safe space and legitimacy. Where he could still earn profits of his public office.
Trump is just using these avenues as he thrives on hate and racism. If he didn’t, he wouldn’t associate or defend these people. The man wouldn’t have ushered in these Executive Orders and made the policies as brutal during his term. As he would like ICE Agents to raid homes like the Gestapo and put kids in cages for profiteering companies to build makeshift camps for refugees and asylum-seekers. However, that is what has been done and that is why his favoured by racist within the Republic.
The ones who would like and endure a split of the Republic. To go back to the Confederacy and break the Union. So, that Trump could run the split Republic and be their sole-candidate. Be the Tin-Pot Dictator of the Republican South and rule the rural parts of America. Where he got the support. As that is the saving grace. They would enjoy to be run by a con, a scammer and liar-in-chief. That is their guy, because he deliver their racist backwards agenda.
This is why Trump is more dangerous than the Tea Party Movement. This is the extension and the hard-core base. The Qanon and armed militias trusting blindly in their “dear leader” and ride or die attitude, which even ends up in violent attacks on State Houses and threats of coup d’etat. Just like the ones that went after the Governor in Michigan. And the trying to seal the case with the Texas Attorney General petition to the Supreme Court. This is all using the powers and their stations to destroy Democracy from within and the Republican Party plays into it.
They are all following Trump and being led by his motives. His selfish and narrow-minded acts, which only serves him and his purpose. This man will feed into anything to possibly gain. Create fake culture-wars and spin all sort of conspiracy. It will be lizard-people, pizza-gates and whatnot. Without any proof and Alex Jones will play on the strings. Rush Limbaugh will sing his songs too. All of the Presidents Men will join in.
Therefore, the reactionary Tea Party Movement gave the world the likes of Ted Cruz, Matt Gaetz and Sarah Palin. However, what Trump will bring is much more. It will be even more fierce. If he will get a new party or a new movement. If he will bring a new TV station, which is more direct and insincere compared to Fox News. God knows, but if the Tea Party was a clue to 2020 and 2021.
Surely, that will be nothing compared to the masses that will join in the MAGA and “Stop The Steal” and whatnot now. These folks will be off the hinges and have no pity. These folks will not even conceal it and they have proven that. They have been allowed to thrive during this Presidency and will be much bigger danger in 2021 when Biden gets in-office.
Biden have to rule while these groups and while Trump vile them-up. There will be reactions and will be merciless means. Yes, the rallies and speeches now seems like rambling incoherent nonsense. However, that will not stop them. These folks will continue to battle, to confront and find means to get a return.
Trump will use this support for monetary gains and to be relevant. He will boost this as much as possible and use this as a stepping stone. Because, he needs some leafs of hope to cling-on too. Not that its anything good or positive for America as whole. Nevertheless, when has that ever been the case with this man? Never, right?
So, he just continues the negative spiral and wants to thrive on it. The GOP is playing along and letting him do so. We still don’t know the effects or if these will continue all through. However, the Tea Party built a momentum and made people’s careers. Why shouldn’t Trump do the same now. As he has been the President and can usher in his own. Even if it is despicable and disgusting as it gets. Because, there is where he has his base.
He will build something along the lines of Charles Lindberg and his America First Committee (AFC). That is where Trump belongs, the “alt-right” and white supremacists will all cling-on to that. This is his ball-park and where he can thrive. Be their leader and their patron.
That is how things seems and the lame-duck President is playing along to it. Especially, when its reported that he invited the “Proud Boys” to the White House. That says it all. He wants to find his space and get a pay-off like he always does. That is his motivation and his means to an end. There is nothing beautiful or sincere in this. Only a political bargain for his future. Which most likely is a weird and straight up knock-off of the Tea Party Movement with some sort of sprinkles of hate and racism. Peace.
The incumbent “strong-man” and Republican President Donald J. Trump seems to willing to trade the truth, the will of the people and everything else for one simple thing: Him staying in power. He is willing to let people lose their licenses to practice law in filing in fraudulent petitions to the courts. The President is willing to use sedition and forging a coup d’etat by triggering the electoral college his way.
That is the sort of man that speaks of rule of law and justice. The man that supposed to be righteous President of a Republic. A man whose willing to steal the election for his own favour. Where all the stacks of odds is against him. He has lost both the popular vote, which he has done twice and also the electoral college. In the same manner as he won in 2016. Therefore, he should take the loose on the chin and man-up for civilian life soon.
However, as a fake “strong-man” and a bunker-boy he wants to be the greatest ever. The man who is supposed to be winning, but ends up loosing. It is always about him. Nevertheless, he is willing to jeopardize institutions and rule of law. Just so he can reign supreme. Because this man needs leverage and needs help to salvage anything before it is over. This man has so many loans and huge debt to repay. Without the office, his estates and his companies might suffer hard. As well, he might be only President in living memory because of court orders not allowed to open an Foundation in his name. That is the sort of ordeal waiting for him in January 2021.
If Trump had a chance he would made a shot and taken away certification from the various of states. Just to undermine the elections and ensure that he could win. This is why his even trying to sway state legislators in swing states to appoint electors who will vote for him. That is a coup d’etat and rig the election in his favour.
That the Republicans are playing this game and using the lame-duck position to do this. Only shows how little they care about the value of the polls. They don’t care about the ballots. Playing with the will of the people for his own gains.
The White House should make it easier for the Biden Transition. Instead, it is working and postponing the ideal easy move of an new administration when Trump is over. We can clearly see that the Republicans doesn’t value the state, but the individual is more important. That one man is more important than the laws and the moral judgment of character. They should have started like Bush and Obama did when their terms was over. Instead, his petition courts, being dismissed and having erratic mismatched press conference to conceal the lack of evidence for the courts.
President Trump shows again that he doesn’t value the Republic. Trump and his team only values power and feeding its base with lies and deception. Seemingly there are people buying into it and they want to be conned.
This is their long-con … to trick the public and its supporters. However, in legal terms and within the reach of electoral laws. They got nothing. None. Zero. They are on a fishing expedition and cannot catch a single thing.
However, we are seeing that the “strong-man” isn’t capable to rig himself to second term. He warned that he wanted to do this. Playing with the legitimacy if he lost. That is what his doing and trying configure himself on the throne yet again. However, that shouldn’t work. He should fail and fall flat. Nevertheless, it shows that the institutions and the American democracy is super fragile and needs reforms. Because, it cannot be this easy for a ruthless and a reckless person like Trump to fiddle with it this easily. Peace.
There was just a matter of time, as the House of Representatives and the majority Committees would collectively go together and make a resolution to vote over the Impeachment of President Donald J. Trump. This after his own actions in office, as the Head of State and the Executive of State.
He is trying to deflect the facts and call it names, but reality is this. The President tried together with all of his handlers to get dirt and shade his political opponent Joe Biden, by making a fraudulent agreement with Ukrainian counterparts and if it didn’t get followed the military aid didn’t come their way.
The Articles against the President is very simple, but straight to the fact. That the President did misuse power or abuse it. He tried to get a foreign power to interfere in the elections of 2020. To investigate the son of Biden. That is what the President did. That is abuse of power and misuse of power in office, using the aid of the state to get a favourable case abroad.
The Second article is the obstruction of Congress. Which at this point is fact. As his administration haven’t answered any of the subpoenas nor calls to testify of people associated with President. Even the ones who been fired has not testified. Family members of the President has also declined to answer the subpoenas and answer the committees.
That has been done by withholding documents or production of it. Defying all subpoenas and refused to produce a single document or record. Directing the Executive Branch not to cooperate nor defying to testify. There are nine persons who have not cooperated from the Executive Branch alone.
While the President has decided that he should decide the scope, the levels of inquire and ability to investigate him. That he has the “executive privilege” and the “sole Power of Impeachment”. With the stopping of documents, lack of cooperation is all a proof the obstruction of justice. As the Congress couldn’t prevail or even manage to get everything. Since, the Executive Branch has been so reluctant to do their duty.
Trump has clearly not followed the memo or should we at this point call his Constitutional rights as a citizen and as a President. He has done whatever he can shelve and stop the Congress from questioning him and his team. While having yes men, whose also involved in the shady business of the President, the likes of Devin Nunes. Who just have an ability to be with the characters of the Executive Branch and ilk who deter to breach the law. That is why the President needs to be tried and answer for his action.
There are several around Rudy Giuliani the attorney of the President whose entangled and in trouble over the same Ukraine Scandal. Which is showing the remorse and the reality on the ground. As the White House is spreading all sort of fiction to pass. Hoping all these conspiracy theories will stick.
While this will most likely pass in the House of Representatives, it will be blocked and silenced in the Senate. As the Republicans cannot go against their master, the likes of Lindsay Graham is unbound in his loyalty to the kingpin on top. His whole fate and life depends on the Donald. That is how it seems.
We will see if the crook will win or not. The House have done their part. They have been able, even in the hardest of hurdles to make a report. To prove what Trump in regards to Ukraine. Now it is just a matter of time. What results it will give and how it will sway the public opinion.
The articles are well-crafted, just like the majority report shows the intent and the essence of the whole ordeal. It is just is if the Senate will betray the Constitution or if they will stab Donald in the back. Which I doubt, because at this point. None of the GOP or Republican Senators seems interested in walking over trouble waters without kissing the ring of Trump. Peace.
