On Tuesday night, during an interview with his daughter-in-law Lara Trump, former President Donald Trump said that there is “hope” for a 2024 run. The website Facebook immediately pulled the video of the interview from their so-called “platform” claiming that the “voice of Donald Trump” in not allowed on their website.
Social media sites like Facebook get protection from liability on things that are posted on their site because to be a platform means you are not acting as a publisher where you dictate what is allowed to be posted on your media, you are simply allowing people to post what they want. That’s based on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. But Facebook stopped acting like a platform a very long time ago, about the time Donald Trump was elected president. These tech tyrant companies hide behind cleverly written Terms of Service agreements that actually create an environment where the fascist censors can block any speech they don’t politically agree with. I get censored all the time by Facebook, Twitter, Google, and more, and with each platform, I never get an explanation as to how I violated their Terms of Service. In fact, the only platform that has responded to me after I appealed is YouTube, and each time they banned a video I uploaded they reversed themselves in the appeal, because either they realized they made a mistake or enough time went by and the issues covered in the video were no longer relevant. YouTube is owned by Google.
So now someone can’t even post a video of Donald Trump speaking or it will be pulled and the person who innocently posted it, who had absolutely nothing to do with the creation of the video, may be punished for doing so. That’s some platform. If there was a list of things that you could get in trouble for posting, I can almost guarantee that Donald Trump is at the top of that list.
During the interview, Trump also said that he should have won the 2020 presidential election (I think he did) and he ripped Joe Biden for the horrible job he’s done in office since January.
Lara asked the former president, “The other question people all want to know, and I know you’re not ready to answer it yet, but do we have hope that there’s a possibility to see Donald Trump run again in 2024?”
He responded, “You do have hope, that I can tell you. You do have hope. We love our country, this country. We all owe a lot to our country, but now we have to help our country. And we were there. We were so good. What we did with Iran, what we did with China. We were all set to do some great things. And then you see what’s going on right now.”
The host added, “So we may see a Trump run again in 2024. Stay tuned, ladies and gentlemen.”
After the interview, a Facebook worker messaged some Trump affiliates and warned them that any content with Trump’s voice will be removed from the platform, and “additional limitations on accounts that posted it” could be given out if they continue to post such content. And we’re giving them our money.
“This guidance applies to all campaign accounts and Pages, including Team Trump, other campaign messaging vehicles on our platforms, and former surrogates,” the email, posted on Lara’s Instagram, stated. Was there ever a stronger message to visit other platforms for free speech?
The message said, “Hi folks. We are reaching out to let you know that we removed content from Lara Trump’s Facebook Page that featured President Trump speaking. In line with the block we placed on Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts, further content posted in the voice of Donald Trump will be removed and result in additional limitations on the accounts.” View this post on Instagram

So, it’s no longer just Donald Trump being banned by the publisher, er… the platform from posting something, but now any likeness of the man at all will be ripped off the page. Has there ever been such a level of disrespect for a US president in our lifetime?
You can watch the full 18-minute video from this link. See that? I can’t post the video of a legitimate news story or we could be punished for it. This is the new America.
Everyone knows what it feels like to have someone at work take credit for your labor, and everyone knows that is very frustrating. The many different ways in which President Donald J. Trump’s opponents attempt to dehumanize him, marginalize him, and steal from him have now reached epic proportions, as Democrat Joe Biden did a sloppy victory lap on Thursday night taking credit for the COVID vaccines.
“By Spring, we will be getting the vaccine for every American who wants the vaccine,” President Donald J. Trump said.
And it is Spring, and Trump was right.
“> Operation Warp Speed launched on May 15, 2020. —> The first vaccines were approved by the FDA on December 11, 2020. —> The Biden Administration started on January 20, 2021. Stop trying to take credit for other people’s work, Mr. President, “Caleb Smith posted on Twitter.
“What Joe Biden meant to say: “Thank you, President Trump, for your whole of government approach to fighting #COVID19, which led to historic public/private partnerships, and Operation Warp Speed giving us the vaccine and plans to get it out to the nation.”#CovidAYearOn #Biden,” Paris Dennard posted.
Dennard is “National Spokesperson & Director of Black Media Affairs | Former POTUS (DJT) WH Fellowships Commissioner, GWB White House staff.”
Is it is just political talk to banter over who gets credit for leading the development, production, and manufacturing of the COVID?
No- it isn’t. We are about to find out that Democrat Joe Biden has no earthly idea of managing any of those concepts, as we watch our country spin into turmoil from lack of leadership and lack of concern.
The truth is that the Democrats only know how to take credit for things other people did. We are about to enter a time of chaos in manufacturing, employment, distribution of goods.
Joe Biden’s victory lap is an embarrassing con in a long series of embarrassing cons, and everyone knows it.
Of course, due to the nature of narcissistic personality disorder and other traits of psychopathy, leftist opponents will laugh at Trump for any attempts to remind Americans that it was indeed his leadership that directed all victories from COVID Vaccines, and it was the hard work of many people, who under that leadership, stayed focused on the mission.
There are some very grown-up things going on in America, and unfortunately, many childish people, who are easily led by the leftist propaganda still have the right to vote. That is the downside of our system, and the Democrats are expert level at exploiting them with lies and misinformation.
White female progressive women are expert enablers, good at passing around gossip, lies, and nonsense. And it is effective, especially for charlatan leaders who refuse to face the American people and be scrutinized.
Fact check: President Trump did not instruct people to inject bleach into themselves.
Until Thursday night’s strange appearance by Joe, he had not had an official press conference, and he still hasn’t.
A Senior Advisor for the White House COVID team did, in fact, Thank Trump, as reported by POLITICO:
“Slavitt: I would ‘tip my hat’ to Trump’s Operation Warp Speed. We’re grateful for the work that came before us and is doing the best we can to continue it and accelerate it,” Slavitt said on Fox.
“Andy Slavitt, a senior adviser to the White House’s Covid team, on Thursday credited the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed for spurring the development of a Covid vaccine at an unprecedented pace.
“We’re grateful for the work that came before us and is doing the best we can to continue it and accelerate it,” Slavitt said on Fox News. “I would absolutely tip my hat. … The Trump administration made sure that we got in record time a vaccine up and out. That’s a great thing, and it’s something we should all be excited about.”
Now, will the immature posters online understand who they voted for and what they are actually doing?
Most likely, there is a percentage of people we will never reach. In the meantime, thank you, President Trump.
On Monday night, Sean Hannity tore to shreds Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell on his show for the outrageous condemnation of former President Donald Trump after he was acquitted a second time during a rigged and highly unprofessional impeachment mess on Saturday.
McConnell voted to acquit Donald Trump and then proceeded to castigate him over the riot that happened at the Capitol on January 6. A lot of people feel that McConnell was trying to play to both sides of the aisle.
During his speech, McConnell accused Trump of being morally responsible for the riot that broke out and said that the only reason he voted to acquit the president was that it is unconstitutional to try a president who has already left office.
McConnell then doubled down writing on Monday, “There is no question former President Trump bears moral responsibility. His supporters stormed the Capitol because of the unhinged falsehoods he shouted into the world’s largest megaphone.”
How can people like McConnell, who has to have access to a television, not realize that it has already come out that the FBI gave warnings to him and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi days before the January 6 event that they had credible intelligence that there was going to be an attack with violence at the Capitol? How come neither Sgt at Arms for the House nor the Senate accepted help from the National Guard that was offered by President Trump says before January 6 and multiple times? According to former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, the president offered up to 10,000 National Guard troops to protect that Capitol and the entire DC area, and each time his offers were rebuked.
“His behavior during and after the chaos was also unconscionable, from attacking Vice President Mike Pence during the riot to praising the criminals after it ended,” he claimed.
McConnell said he had no ill will against the seven turncoat Republican senators who voted to convict Trump, but 74 million Americans who voted for Trump do.
Can we get something straight? Donald Trump did not incite the riot. There’s just too much evidence showing the contrary, and it’s worthless idiots like McConnell who lend credence to the hateful Democrats who are exploiting what took place at the Capitol on January 6 in order to demoralize Trump supporters. It’s not going to happen, because, despite the efforts of the Trump haters, they know what happened. They know Trump was not the cause of the riot. The FBI also arrested many leftists who were caught plotting and pre-planning the riot days before it happened. How come the Mitch McConnells of the world keep ignoring that?
Hannity ripped on “Republicans who have turned their backs on the former president,” during his show. He called on the carpet “sanctimonious” McConnell and the other seven Republican nitwits in the Senate who joined the Democrats in trying to convict Trump for allegedly inciting the riot on Capitol Hill.
“Where was John Thune (R-SD) and Mitch McConnell fighting against the biggest abuse of power corruption scandal in our history with Operation Crossfire Hurricane?” Hannity asked. And he’s right. There were some Republican heroes who tried to stop the never-ending onslaught against Trump from the minute he became president, guys like Reps. Devin Nunes (R-CA), Jim Jordan (R-OH), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), and Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), but the majority of congressional Republicans let it happen. They did next to nothing to stop the lawlessness of Democrats who went after Trump in the most despicable ways.
“They were missing in action. Where’s the sanctimonious Mitch McConnell, John Thune, demanding that Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters — when is he going to give a speech on the Senate floor and hold those Democrats accountable for their incitement of insurrection and their insurrection-like language? The time is now coming for new leadership in the U.S. Senate.”
The Senate Republicans who voted to convict Trump that Hannity was talking about are Sens. Richard Burr (NC), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Bill Cassidy (LA), Susan Collins (ME), Mitt Romney (UT), Ben Sasse (NE), and Pat Toomey (PA). Tomey and Burr are retiring and Collins and Sasse just got reelected, but conservative Trump supporters have a long memory. Most of the useful idiots in that group are catching flack back home from their angry constituents.
Three of the Republican senators who voted to convict Trump during the impeachment trial have already been censured by the Republican Party in their states including Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, and Pat Toomey.
Lou Dobbs’ fans and fellow supporters of President Donald Trump are standing behind the longtime Fox Business host after the ratings-winning show that he had anchored for a decade was canceled Friday.
The veteran cable news host on Friday and Saturday shared numerous tweets including one from a person who had posted a statement from Trump, whose own account was dropped from Twitter that voiced support for both him and his show as the outcry grew about Fox’s decision, reports The Hill.
“Lou Dobbs is and was great,” Trump said in the statement, shared by Women For America First Chairwoman Amy Kremer. “Nobody loves America more than Lou. He had a large and loyal following that will be watching closely for his next move, and that following includes me,” Trump said.
Dobbs was one of Trump’s biggest supporters in conservative media, more than likely because of the incredible on the former president did with our economy. Dobbs often chided other Republicans who he thought didn’t defend the former president enough as he was attacked daily for four years by the Left. Dobbs also talked about election fraud after the 2020 election that he felt caused Trump to lose. Pretty much everyone felt Trump won and it was stolen from him but the Woke Supremacy now will silence you if you have anything to say about it.
The host retweeted some tweets that speculated that the Fox network was in a tailspin and was in its own “race with itself for the bottom.” I personally believe the beginning of the end was when Fox hired former speaker of the house RINO Republican Paul Ryan who was a Never Trumper and hated Trump’s guts who allegedly said during a Republican conference call after the election that he would never support a President Trump, and he stayed true to his word. Once Ryan was hired and put on the Board one of the first things he did was told news anchors to stop supporting Donald Trump so strongly. That was the beginning of their downfall.
Many Twitter fans of Dobbs called him a patriot and referred to the host as a “GOAT,” which is in an acronym for “greatest of all time.”
Dobbs replied to Trump’s statement that was passed on by Amy Kremer the co-founder of Women For Trump, posting, “Thanks for your kind words, Mr. President. God bless you and all the American patriots who make this country great.”
Some Twitter fans expressed their feelings about how the host was treated by Fox.
Fox News in an epically stupid move canceled “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” which the network had bragged was the highest-rated program on Fox Business channel. The show recently celebrated its 100th straight week of beating CNBC in the ratings according to Nielsen. That was not a brilliant move.
It turns out Dobbs, along with Judge Jeanine Pirro and Maria Bartiromo fell victim to the standard leftist pre-counter attack being sued by Smartmatic for $2.7 billion in a defamation suit. Dobbs can’t go anywhere else yet, because even though the network late him go and said he will not be back on the network they still have him under contract.
Fox’s lawyers said that the lawsuit doesn’t have merit and the network will fight it in court. On that, they are absolutely right because in order to win a defamation suit there are three major hurdles you have to overcome. The first is that you have to prove that what was said is false. If there is any evidence that data was swapped by Smartmatic software then that hurdle is not satisfied and the suit ends there. If they can prove that what Dobbs said was false they then have to prove that the host knew it was false and said it anyway. They can’t possibly do that because there is no evidence that Dobbs believed what he was saying was false and he said it anyway. Plus anybody who knows Lou Dobbs knows he would never do that. And if by some miracle they were able to get over that hurdle then they have to prove that because of what Dobbs said it caused the company to lose money. So this lawsuit is just for revenge and to make it appear that Lou Dobbs, and anyone else that they are suing for that matter, wronged them. They want the public perception to believe that they are the victim.
President Donald Trump, or should I remind everyone, especially Democrats, that he is now in reality “former” President Donald Trump, as he has not been in office since noon on January 20, 2021. He is now a private citizen.
On Monday, the former president’s attorneys Bruce Castor and David Schoen responded to the Article of Impeachment scammed against him by the United States House of Woke Representatives. I say scam because there was not a single hearing, there were no witnesses called, and the then-president was not allowed to respond to the accusations being made against him. And the most important part is the House had no evidence to prove the allegations made in the Article.
Basically, the argument sums up to “The Senate of the United States lacks jurisdiction over the 45th President
because he holds no public office from which he can be removed…”
Read their response below:
ANSWER OF PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP, 45TH PRESIDENT OF
THE UNITED STATES, TO ARTICLE I: INCITEMENT OF INSURRECTION
To: The Honorable, the Members of the Unites States Senate:
The 45th President of the United States, Donald John Trump, through his
counsel Bruce L. Castor, Jr., and David Schoen hereby responds to the Article
of Impeachment lodged against him by the United States House of
Representatives by breaking the allegations out into 8 Averments and,
1. The Constitution provides that the House of Representatives ‘shall have
the sole Power of Impeachment’ and that the President ‘shall be removed from
Office on Impeachment for, and conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high
Crimes and Misdemeanors.’”
Admitted in part, denied in part as not relevant to any matter properly
before the Senate. It is admitted that the Constitutional provision at
Averment 1 is accurately reproduced. It is denied that the quoted provision
currently applies to the 45th President of the United States since he is no longer
“President.” The constitutional provision requires that a person actually hold
office to be impeached. Since the 45th President is no longer “President,” the
clause ‘shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for…’ is impossible for
the Senate to accomplish, and thus the current proceeding before the Senate is
void ab initio as a legal nullity that runs patently contrary to the plain language
of the Constitution. Article I, Section 3 of the Constitution states “[j]udgment in
cases of impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from office, and
disqualification to hold and enjoy an office of honor…” (emphasis added). Since
removal from office by the Senate of the President is a condition precedent
which must occur before, and jointly with, “disqualification” to hold future
office, the fact that the Senate presently is unable to remove from office the 45th
President whose term has expired, means that Averment 1 is therefore
irrelevant to any matter before the Senate.
2. Further, section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution prohibits
any person who has ‘engaged in insurrection or rebellion against’ the United
States from ‘hold[ing] any office…under the United States’.
Admitted in part, denied in part, and denied as not relevant to any matter
properly before the Senate. It is admitted that phrases from Section 3 of the
14th Amendment to the Constitution are correctly replicated in Averment 2. It
is denied that the 45th President engaged in insurrection or rebellion against
the United States. The 45th President believes and therefore avers that as a
private citizen, the Senate has no jurisdiction over his ability to hold office and
for the Senate to take action on this averment would constitute a Bill of
Attainder in violation of Art. I, Sec. 9. Cl. 3 of the United States Constitution.
The 45th President asks the Senate to dismiss Averment 2 relating to the 14th
Amendment as moot.
3. In his conduct while President of the United States – and in violation of
his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United
States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the
Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to
take care that the laws be faithfully executed.
Denied, and irrelevant to any matter properly before the Senate. It is
denied that the 45th President of the United States ever engaged in a violation
of his oath of office. To the contrary, at all times, Donald J. Trump fully and
faithfully executed his duties as President of the United States, and at all times
acted to the best of his ability to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution
of the United States, while never engaging in any high Crimes or
Misdemeanors. Since the 45th President is no longer “President,” the clause
‘shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for…’ referenced at Averment 1
above is impossible, and the current proceeding before the Senate is void ab
initio as a legal nullity patently contrary to the plain language of the
Constitution. As the present proceedings are moot and thus a nullity since the
45th President cannot be removed from an office he no longer occupies,
Averment 3 is irrelevant to any matter properly before the Senate.
4. Donald John Trump engaged in high Crimes and Misdemeanors by
inciting violence against the Government of the United States, in that:
On January 6, 2021, pursuant to the 12th Amendment to the
Constitution of the United States, the Vice President of the United States, the
House of Representatives, and the Senate met at the United States Capitol for a
joint session of Congress to count the votes of the Electoral College. In the
months preceding the Joint Session, President Trump repeatedly issued false
statements asserting that the Presidential election results were the product of
widespread fraud and should not be accepted by the American people or
certified by State or Federal officials.
Admitted in part, denied in part, and denied as irrelevant to any matter
properly before the Senate. It is admitted that on January 6, 2021 a joint
session of Congress met with the Vice President, the House and the Senate, to
count the votes of the Electoral College. It is admitted that after the November
election, the 45th President exercised his First Amendment right under the
Constitution to express his belief that the election results were suspect, since
with very few exceptions, under the convenient guise of Covid-19 pandemic
“safeguards” states election laws and procedures were changed by local
politicians or judges without the necessary approvals from state legislatures.
Insufficient evidence exists upon which a reasonable jurist could conclude that
the 45th President’s statements were accurate or not, and he therefore denies
they were false. Like all Americans, the 45th President is protected by the First
Amendment. Indeed, he believes, and therefore avers, that the United States is
unique on Earth in that its governing documents, the Constitution and Bill of
Rights, specifically and intentionally protect unpopular speech from
government retaliation. If the First Amendment protected only speech the
government deemed popular in current American culture, it would be no
protection at all. Since the 45th President is no longer “President,” the
Constitutional clause at Averment 1 above ‘shall be removed from Office on
Impeachment for…’ is impossible since the 45th President does not hold office
and the current proceeding before the Senate is void ab initio as a legal nullity
rendering Averment 4 irrelevant to any matter properly before the Senate.
5. Shortly before the Joint Session commenced, President Trump,
addressed a crowd at the Capitol ellipse in Washington DC. There, he reiterated
false claims that “we won this election, and we won it by a landslide.”
Admitted in part, denied in part. It is admitted that President Trump
addressed a crowd at the Capitol ellipse on January 6, 2021 as is his right
under the First Amendment to the Constitution and expressed his opinion that
the election results were suspect, as is contained in the full recording of the
speech. To the extent Averment 5 alleges his opinion is factually in error, the
45th President denies this allegation.
6. He also willfully made statements that, in context, encouraged – and
foreseeably resulted in – lawless action at then Capitol, such as: “if you don’t
fight like hell you’re not going to have a country anymore.” Thus, incited by
President Trump, members of the crowd he had addressed, in an attempt to,
among other objectives, interfere with the Joint Session’s solemn constitutional
duty to certify the results of the 2020 Presidential election, unlawfully breached
and vandalized the Capitol, injured and killed law enforcement personnel,
menaced Members of Congress, the Vice President, and Congressional
personnel, and engaged in other violent, deadly, destructive, and seditious act.
Admitted in Part, denied in part. It is admitted that persons unlawfully
breached and vandalized the Capitol, that people were injured and killed, and
that law enforcement is currently investigating and prosecuting those who were
responsible. “Seditious acts” is a term of art with a legal meaning and the use
of that phrase in the article of impeachment is thus denied in the context in
which it was used. It is denied that President Trump incited the crowd to
engage in destructive behavior. It is denied that the phrase “if you don’t fight
like hell you’re not going to have a country anymore” had anything to do with
the action at the Capitol as it was clearly about the need to fight for election
security in general, as evidenced by the recording of the speech. It is denied
that President Trump intended to interfere with the counting of Electoral votes.
As is customary, Members of Congress challenged electoral vote submissions
by state under a process written into Congressional rules allowing for the
respective Houses of Congress to debate whether a state’s submitted electoral
votes should be counted. In 2017, Democratic Members of Congress
repeatedly challenged the electoral votes submitted from states where President
Trump prevailed. In 2021, Republican Members of Congress challenged the
electoral votes submitted from states where President Biden prevailed. The
purpose of the Joint Sessions of Congress in 2017 and on January 6, 2021 was
for Members of Congress to fulfill their duty to be certain the Electoral College
votes were properly submitted, and any challenges thereto properly addressed
under Congressional rules. Congress’ duty, therefore, was not just to certify
the presidential election. Its duty was to first determine whether certification of
the presidential election vote was warranted and permissible under its rules.
7. “President Trump’s conduct on January 6, 2021, followed his prior
efforts to subvert the certification of the results of the 2020 Presidential
Election. Those prior efforts, included a phone call on January 2, 2021, during
which President Trump urged the secretary of state Georgia, Brad
Raffensperger, to “find” enough votes to overturn the Georgia Presidential
election results and threatened Secretary Raffensperger if he failed to do so.
Admitted in part. Denied in part. Denied as irrelevant to any matter
properly before the Senate. It is admitted that President Trump spoke on the
telephone with Secretary Raffensperger and multiple other parties, including
several attorneys for both parties, on January 2, 2021. Secretary Raffensperger
or someone at his direction surreptitiously recorded the call and subsequently
made it public. The recording accurately reflects the content of the
conversation. It is denied President Trump made any effort to subvert the
certification of the results of the 2020 Presidential election. It is denied that the
word “find” was inappropriate in context, as President Trump was expressing
his opinion that if the evidence was carefully examined one would “find that
you have many that aren’t even signed and you have many that are forgeries.”
It is denied that President Trump threatened Secretary Raffensperger. It is
denied that President Trump acted improperly in that telephone call in any
way. Since the 45th President is no longer “President,” the Constitutional
clause from Averment 1 above ‘shall be removed from Office on Impeachment
for…’ is impossible since the 45th President does not hold office rendering the
current proceeding before the Senate is void ab initio as a legal nullity making
Averment 7 irrelevant to any matter properly before the Senate.
8. “In all this, President Trump gravely endangered the security of the
United States and its institutions of Government. He threatened the integrity
of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and
imperiled a coequal branch Government. He thereby betrayed his trust as
President, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.
Denied, and denied as irrelevant to any matter properly before the Senate.
It is denied that President Trump ever endangered the security of the United
States and its institutions of Government. It is denied he threatened the
integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of
power, and imperiled a coequal branch Government. It is denied he betrayed
his trust as President, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.
Rather, the 45th President of the United States performed admirably in his role
as president, at all times doing what he thought was in the best interests of the
American people. The 45th President believes and therefore avers that in the
United States, the people choose their President, and that he was properly
chosen in 2016 and sworn into office in 2017, serving his term to the best of
his ability in comportment with his oath of office. Since the 45th President is
no longer “President,” the Constitutional clause at Averment 1 above ‘shall be
removed from Office on Impeachment for…’ is impossible for the Senate to
accomplish since the 45th President does not hold office, meaning the current
proceeding before the Senate is void ab initio as a legal nullity rendering
Averment 8 irrelevant to any matter properly before the Senate.
To the extent there are factual allegations made against the 45th President of
the United States contained in Article I that are not specifically addressed
above, said allegations are denied and strict proof at time of hearing is
To: The Honorable, the Members of the Unites States Senate:
The 45th President of the United States, Donald John Trump, through his
counsel Bruce L. Castor, Jr., and David Schoen hereby avers that the Article of
Impeachment lodged against him by the United States House of
Representatives is facially and substantively flawed, and otherwise
unconstitutional, and must be dismissed with prejudice. In support thereof,
the 45th President,
1. The Senate of the United States lacks jurisdiction over the 45th President
because he holds no public office from which he can be removed, and the
Constitution limits the authority of the Senate in cases of impeachment to
removal from office as the prerequisite active remedy allowed the Senate under
2. The Senate of the United States lacks jurisdiction over the 45th President
because he holds no public office from which he can be removed rendering the
Article of Impeachment moot and a non-justiciable question.
3. Should the Senate act on the Article of Impeachment initiated in the
House of Representatives, it will have passed a Bill of Attainder in violation of
Article 1, Sec. 9. Cl. 3 of the United States Constitution.
4. The Article of Impeachment misconstrues protected speech and fails to
meet the constitutional standard for any impeachable offense.
5. The House of Representatives deprived the 45th President of due process
of law in rushing to issue the Article of Impeachment by ignoring it own
procedures and precedents going back to the mid-19th century. The lack of due
process included, but was not limited to, its failure to conduct any meaningful
committee review or other investigation, engage in any full and fair
consideration of evidence in support of the Article, as well as the failure to
conduct any full and fair discussion by allowing the 45th President’s positions
to be heard in the House Chamber. No exigent circumstances under the law
were present excusing the House of Representatives’ rush to judgment. The
House of Representatives’ action, in depriving the 45th President of due process
of law, created a special category of citizenship for a single individual: the 45th
President of the United States. Should this body not act in favor of the 45th
President, the precedent set by the House of Representatives would become
that such persons as the 45th President similarly situated no longer enjoy the
rights of all American citizens guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. The actions by
the House make clear that in their opinion the 45th President does not enjoy
the protections of liberty upon which this great Nation was founded, where free
speech, and indeed, free political speech form the backbone of all American
liberties. None of the traditional reasons permitting the government to act in
such haste (i.e exigent circumstances) were present. The House had no reason
to rush its proceedings, disregard its own precedents and procedures, engage
in zero committee or other investigation, and fail to grant the accused his
“opportunity to be heard” in person or through counsel – all basic tenets of due
process of law. There was no exigency, as evidenced by the fact that the House
waited until after the end of the President’s term to even send the articles over
and there was thus no legal or moral reason for the House to act as it did.
Political hatred has no place in the administration of justice anywhere in
America, especially in the Congress of the United States.
6. The Article of Impeachment violates the 45th President’s right to free
speech and thought guaranteed under the First Amendment to the United
7. The Article is constitutionally flawed in that it charges multiple instances
of allegedly impeachable conduct in a single article. By charging multiple
alleged wrongs in one article, the House of Representatives has made it
impossible to guarantee compliance with the Constitutional mandate in Article
1, Sec. 3, Cl. 6 that permits a conviction only by at least two-thirds of the
members. The House charge fails by interweaving differing allegations rather
than breaking them out into counts of alleged individual instances of
misconduct. Rule XXIII of the Rules of Procedure and Practice in the Senate
When Sitting on Impeachment Trials provides, in pertinent part, that an article
of impeachment shall not be divisible thereon. Because the Article at issue
here alleges multiple wrongs in the single article, it would be impossible to
know if two-thirds of the members agreed on the entire article, or just on parts,
as the basis for vote to convict. The House failed to adhere to strict Senate
rules and, instead, chose to make the Article as broad as possible intentionally
in the hope that some Senators might agree with parts, and other Senators
agree with other parts, but that when these groups of senators were added
together, the House might achieve the appearance of two thirds in agreement,
when those two thirds of members, in reality, did not concur on the same
allegations interwoven into an over-broad article designed for just such a
purpose. Such behavior on the part of the House of Representatives may have
a less nefarious reason, in the alternative, and simply be a by-product of the
haste in which the House unnecessarily acted while depriving the 45th
President of the United States of his American right to due process of law. The
45th President of the United States believes and therefore avers that the defect
in the drafting of the Article requires that Senators be instructed that if two
thirds of them fail to find any portion of the Article lacking in evidence
sufficient for conviction, then the entire Article fails and should be dismissed.
8. The Chief Justice of the United States is not set to preside over the
proceedings contemplated by the Senate, as he would be constitutionally
required to do if the House was seeking to have the president removed from
office under Art. I, Sec 3, Cl. 6 of the United States Constitution. Once the 45th
President’s term expired, and the House chose to allow jurisdiction to lapse on
the Article of Impeachment, the constitutional mandate for the Chief Justice to
preside at all impeachments involving the President evidently disappeared, and
he was replaced by a partisan Senator who will purportedly also act as a juror
while ruling on certain issues. The House actions thus were designed to
ensure that Chief Justice John Roberts would not preside over the proceedings,
which effectively creates the additional appearance of bias with the proceedings
now being supervised by a partisan member of the Senate with a long history of
public remarks adverse to the 45th President. The 45th President believes and
therefore avers that this action of the House of Representatives, additionally,
violated his right to due process of law because the House, effectively,
maneuvered an ally in the Senate into the judge’s chair.
WHEREFORE, Donald John Trump, 45th President of the United States
respectfully requests the Honorable Members of the Senate of the United States
dismiss Article I: Incitement of Insurrection against him as moot, and thus in
violation of the Constitution, because the Senate lacks jurisdiction to remove
from office a man who does not hold office. In the alternative, the 45th
President respectfully requests the Senate acquit him on the merits of the
allegations raised in the article of impeachment.
Former President Donald Trump’s team has officially disavowed anything to do with the new “Patriot Party,” which is a fringe group of opportunists that have tried to pull Trump’s supporters out of the Republican Party and into a newly-formed third-party.
The problem with the idea of a third party is that even if you by some miracle they were able to get elected to the White House under a third party they would have no one with which to work with in the Congress. The two major parties already have an infrastructure in place respectively and a new political party would take years to create their own infrastructure. The best thing that you can do is to reform the current Republican Party by getting rid of the RINOs and the spineless wimp’s that are saturated throughout.
Fake News people have been reporting that Donald Trump is connected to Mike Gaul of Georgia who lied by saying that Trump could be connected to his January 22 filing to create the Patriot Party. Trump’s people have made it as clear as they can in their own FEC filing that it is a false assessment as the former president has nothing whatsoever to do with it. Of course, you know that this will not stop the Fake News media from continually claiming that he does.
“On January 22, 2021, Patriot Party filed a Form 1 (Statement of Organization) listing [Trump’s presidential organization] as a participant in purported joint fundraising activities under 11 C.F.R. 102.17. [Trump’s presidential organization] did not authorize the filing of this Form 1, has not entered into any joint fundraising agreement to fundraise through Patriot Party, and has no knowledge of Patriot Party’s activities whatsoever,” the Trump’s team filing said.
To be clear: [Trump’s presidential organization] has no affiliation with Patriot Party, which is not authorized by Mr. Trump or [Trump’s presidential organization],” the filing added.
“[Trump’s presidential organization] is placing this disavowal notice on the public record out of concern for confusion among the public, which may be misled to believe that Patriot Party’s activities have been authorized by Mr. Trump or [Trump’s presidential organization] — or that contributions to this unauthorized committee are being made to [Trump’s presidential organization] — when that is not true,” they added in the filing.
For like a minute Trump kicked around the idea of starting a third party, but he quickly dropped the subject because it’s not a viable option. But that didn’t stop sleaze bags from taking the opportunity to try to cash in on Trump’s name. Some people suck.
Recent polling shows that an overwhelming number of Republican voters want the GOP to adopt Trump’s America First nationalist agenda, and they want Republican politicians to grow a spine and to fight back against the socialist Democrats the way Trump did. The establishment Republicans like Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, Dan Crenshaw, Liz Cheney, and others are trying to shift the party faithful back to the days where Republicans lose quietly in a gentlemanly manner while we watch the progressive Marxists destroy our country.
McConnell, who was helped in the past with Trump’s endorsement, turned his back on the president when the Democrats stole the election from him. This cretin then joined in with the Woke Sujpremacists of the Left by agreeing that Trump incited the riot that took place at the Capitol on January 6, even flirting with the idea of impeaching him. Ten GOP traitors to the Constitution then joined with Democrats to impeach President Trump for the second time and with zero evidence to prove the allegations made against him, only this time there were no hearings and not a single witness was called. The president did not have the right to defend himself. Folks, that’s what these traitor Republicans went along with because they hated Trump or they were too spineless to be the opposition to the Woke Supremacy.
Many Republicans in Congress did absolutely nothing to help Trump show the world that the Democrats cheated badly in the 2020 election and that is why we made a call that the RINOs and establishment types in the Republican Party have to go. Full stop.
Democrats harassed Donald Trump during his presidency with baseless threats of impeachment.
Now, they – along with some Republicans – want to impeach him after he has left office.
Sen. Mitt Romney, R-UT, claimed that “Trump’s effort to convince Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to overturn the state’s election result, as well as his call for a march on the U.S. Capitol at a Jan. 6 rally” were enough grounds for him to support the second articles of impeachment.
However, not every Republican has completely lost their mind by supporting this impeachment process.
Sen. Mike Rounds, R-S.D., stated that the Constitution “does not indicate that you can impeach someone who is not in office,” thus making these impeachment articles a “moot point.”
Certainly, many of Trump’s actions in office were questionable, but to cite these actions as ground for impeachment – especially after he no longer serves as president – are beyond ridiculous and a complete waste of time.
And anyone who supports this – especially Republicans – is just trying to virtue signal and keep themselves relevant in the political sphere.
Instead of focusing on continuing to tear down Trump’s reputation, politicians need to focus their energies on matters of this administration, as the soul of America likely hangs in the balance over the next four years.
Biden has already made it known that he hates the military, religious freedom and countless other hallmarks of the American life that make our country special. Therefore, our leaders must focus their energies on protecting our way of life before it is taken from us.
That should be the goal, not trying to harm Trump anymore.

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled in favor of President Trump’s rule that illegal aliens without insurance could not be admitted into the United States unless they have health insurance on their own.
The “public charge rule” is embedded in US immigration law.
Simply stated, no illegal immigrant can be admitted into the United States if they were going to be a burden on the US taxpayer.
Under section 212(a)(4) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1182(a)(4), an alien seeking admission to the United States or seeking to adjust status to that of a lawful permanent resident (obtaining a Green Card) is inadmissible if the alien, “at the time of application for admission or adjustment of status, is likely at any time to become a public charge.”
If an alien is inadmissible, we will not grant admission to the United States or adjustment of status.
The San Francisco Chronicle claims that it would prevent 375,000 illegal aliens from coming to the United States every year.
Its implementation may not last long though.
If Biden is president and Democrats manage to manufacture enough votes for Democrats to take both Senate seats in Georgia, the Democrats will gladly use your money to pay for their healthcare.
The Chronicle claimed migrants have a right to enter American’s homeland even if they need Americans to pay for their healthcare and suggested that President-elect Joe Biden would probably reverse Trump’s move:
Thursday’s court ruling involved his October 2019 proclamation denying visas to immigrants who did not have health insurance and could not show that they would obtain it within 30 days of entering the country. Immigrants could receive Medicare and be allowed to remain, but those who planned to obtain coverage under the low-income Medicaid program or the government-subsidized Affordable Care Act would not be eligible. Advocates for immigrants say Trump’s proclamation would bar entry to nearly two-thirds of all otherwise legal migrants, those who obtain their entry visas from employers, U.S. relatives or an annual lottery.
The ruling by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, if it becomes final, would allow Trump’s order to take effect for the first time. But attorney Esther Sung of the Justice Action Center, one of the legal organizations challenging the policy, said that under the court’s standard timetable, the ruling will not be binding for 52 days. That would be well past President-elect Joe Biden’s Jan. 20 inauguration. Biden has promised to undo his predecessor’s anti-immigration policies as soon as possible.
Rest assured that if the worst comes to pass, their hand will be in your pocket to pay for healthcare for the illegal aliens as well as for housing, utilities, and food. Because that’s who Democrats are as a party. The only people they are not generous to are hard-working American citizens.
