forget trump

The best solution is to FORGET trump. If America to going to calm down the current political divide and reestablish itself as a world leader where Americans can have some dignity by showing RESPECT to each other regardless of political belief, race, colour or creed then this is the only solution. In fact it would be a far more suitable end to trump’s life if he could be FORGOTTEN. Any legal process that may be successful will only make trump a martyr for his cult followers. Are they really prepared to re-enact the Manson debacle with their country in the balance?

All of the ALLEGED actions which trump was supposed to have achieved are figments of trump’s amoral imagination and the only reason they are so passionately believed by the trump cult is because he repeated them so often in his process of convincing himself that they were true. He has convinced his followers that he “won the election” and that “the election was fraudulent” because he has convinced himself that these falsehoods are true. Please study the characteristics of a total narcissist to establish the truth of this statement.

The main factor delaying the burial of the 1462 days of trump’s destructive administration is the ongoing reporting of trump’s every move by the media. FoxNews’ carefully manipulated and selective reporting in particular. I suggest that this is inevitable because of public interest during the demise of a VERY successful conman. The only real “claim to fame” which trump is entitled to is that he has perpetrated the biggest, most destructive, most expensive (in both money from the American Treasury and lives as Covid-19 deaths edge towards 500,000) CON that has ever been carried out on this planet. And we have to hope and pray that the trump cult wakes up to this fact sooner rather than later.

The King of the Con Artist and an associated crown should be the only remaining legacy for trump. EVERYTHING else needs to be forgotten as soon as possible.

PLEASE pass this on to any trump follower that you may know.

Impeachments of trump by TheCode

1700 Saturday,  13/Feb/2021 (US EST)

The GOP (excluding 7 out of 50) have just demonstrated:
a) that they do not understand the oath that they have taken AND
b) that they are hiding behind TheLaw when their duty lies ABOVE TheLaw AND
c) that they abdicated from their RESPONSIBILITIES (in exactly the same way that they did not remove Senator Greene from “active duty” in the Senate and left it to the Democratic Party “to do the right thing”! And take “the blame”.)

They voted NO and  trump returns to his “normal”, amoral, narcissistic, lying political career. I guess with his character somewhat lower than it was before. But he got away with a crime which he DID commit against THE MAJORITY of Americans AND the Constitution of the USA. And, in the process,  set up America as the richest banana republic in the world.

The Oath of Office:

When these Senators took the oath of office they clearly did not have any understanding of the RESPONSIBILITY level demanded of them by that oath. See here.  This is that oath:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

The oath does not tie the Senator to the wishes of their constituents (the voters that put them into power),  IT TIES THEM TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES against all enemies including DOMESTIC enemies. This clearly makes any Senator RESPONSIBLE for defending THE COUNTRY. Especially when they need to act to defend the Constitution from the wishes of any person or group who is/are damaging the Constitution in any way. Rather like a parent who is RESPONSIBLE for ensuring that their children obey the law.  One wonders what the trump political party (TPP)  would do if they were asked who they would rather have AS AN EXAMPLE FOR THEIR CHILDREN. Would it be President Joe Biden (regardless of his political beliefs) or the thug trump?

Remember that The President is a role model for all the children, 370+ million people in the USA and (in the case of the USA) the rest of the world, who look to The USA as the only power in the world that can keep both China and Russia to some level of accountability. So this in fact means that the TPP is prepared to get their children to use the behavior of trump as an example of the lives that those children should lead. Especially if they wish to become the President of the USA. ??? These Senators have set a precedent which says that the president can do exactly as he wishes.  The death toll from Covid-19 is rapidly approaching 500,000 as President Biden and the best team he could put in place, battles to fill the vacuum of care that trump left behind him. Without any care or remorse. Probably without actually even being aware of the consequences of his disregard and mis-information.

A Senator therefore takes the RESPONSIBILITY of ensuring the enforcement (as well as the support and defense!!) of the Constitution.  And Congress, guided by discussion and voting  (under the oath of office) are able to represent the majority of USA (Joe Biden had SEVEN MILLION – 7,000,000 – more votes than trump, fortunately for the USA) to make decisions which are FAR MORE SIGNIFICANT than TheLaw.  TheLaw which, incidentally, trump has treated with complete disdain ever since he had the power to do so. Probably about the age of 15 or so!!!

The oath commits a Senator to support and defend  The Constitution ON WHICH THE LAW IS (SUPPOSED TO BE) BASED. The responsibility that is acknowledged by taking The Oath is far greater than the responsibility of supporting and defending The Law. That is to ensure that the people of the country are served, protected and guided by The Constitution and that TheLaw is kept up-to-date and in-line with the technology and the knowledge of the current times.

The failure of TheLaw to support and defend The Constitution or TheCode which is  RRR (Respect before Responsibility before Rights) is discussed here. The Constitution of the United States is very much in keeping with TheCode but the politicians, who are mostly lawyers, and the lowlife, using wordcraft/rhetoric have managed  twist the meaning of many of the words to suit their own immediate opinions, desires and aberrations.

The Technicality and TheLaw:

The trump political party (TPP) which (seems to) consist of a majority of the GOP at this time used a technicality to escape the RESPONSIBILITY of adhering to their oath of office.

Ed note: I do not understand why the vote was not taken in camera. Especially as the impeachment trial was under the cloud of trump thuggery and careers (if not lives) was under the threat by any display of disloyalty to trump. Will follow this up later.

This technicality is based on TheLaw and NOT The Constitution as they would like to believe. The Constitution of the USA caters for the Impeachment of a President of the USA see here for full details.

Judgment in Cases of Impeachments shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust, or Profit under the United States, but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment, and Punishmnet, according to Law.

The wording here makes it clear that the Impeachment process includes the disqualifications listed.  It does not in any way suggest that Impeachment has to take place before the disqualification process as was stated by trump (ineffective and semantic manipulating) lawyers. Read the definition again and it becomes clear that the duties of the Senate ARE ABOVE THE LAW AND ARE SUBJECT TO THE OATH OF OFFICE.

Responsibility:

RRR (Respect before Responsibility before Rights) provides a simple  explanation of RESPONSIBILITY here.  The TTP have clearly demonstrated that they do not even qualify for Level 1 (Self).

Surely they must realize that no-one, and I mean NO-ONE, not a single person,  has the ability to maintain loyalty to trump for any length of time.  The amoral thuggery to which trump is prepared to stoop means that at some time soon that person WILL be told (not asked) to do something which will require action/s beyond their moral “tolerance” and you will go the same way as VP Pence. Thug trump had a pretty good go at murdering him.

If one cannot realistically take care of one’s SELF you cannot even understand the RESPONSBILITY for  a FAMILY, or even a GROUP (the GOP) never mind a COUNTRY of 370+ people and the infrastructure on which it depends.

So, I guess, one really cannot expect any such person to even understand that they must destroy any threat to their COUNTRY over and above FAMILY or SELF. Which is of course honoring The Oath which the Senators took on entering Office and BEFORE THEY COULD CARRY OUT ANY OFFICIAL DUTIES.

The creators of The Constitution were even smarter than they are credited for by keeping The Constitution simple and free of misdirecting qualifications which could encourage lawyers to play semantics with the interpretation.

Defending the Constitution in keeping with The Oath is as simple as they could possibly have made the impeachment process.

I guess Politicians = Lawyers (The convolution of TheLaw) = a terrible confluence of two of RRR (Respect before Responsibility before Rights) major Problems.

How sad!

PS. As I finish off this Post, which could have proved to be a very simple course of action for impeaching trump, it strikes me that maybe Mitch MConnell’s final words on the subject need to be followed through. I think he was saying: trump is guilty and he should be removed FROM POLITICS entirely and furthermore the legal (judiciary) system has the ability to do this for us without our (GOP’s) need to risk the stability of the GOP or personal risk.  J

PPS.  Sunday 14 Feb 1700 EST US

This is an excellent summation of the Impachment Trial :

An answer placed on Quora (https://www.quora.com) by Thomas Crowne. Well said, Jude.

The trump wasn’t convicted for a number of reasons. Firsly here are Mitch McConnell’s own words.

“January 6th was a disgrace. American citizens attacked their own government. They used terrorism to try to stop a specific piece of democratic business they did not like. Fellow Americans beat and bloodied our own police. They stormed the Senate floor. They tried to hunt down the Speaker of the House. They built a gallows and chanted about murdering the Vice President.They did this because they had been fed wild falsehoods by the most powerful man on Earth — because he was angry he’d lost an election. Former President Trump’s actions preceding the riot were a disgraceful dereliction of duty. The House accused the former President of, quote, ‘incitement.’ That is a specific term from the criminal law. Let me put that to the side for one moment and reiterate something I said weeks ago: There is no question that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of that day. The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their President. And their having that belief was a foreseeable consequence of the growing crescendo of false statements, conspiracy theories, and reckless hyperbole which the defeated President kept shouting into the largest megaphone on planet Earth.The issue is not only the President’s intemperate language on January 6th. It is not just his endorsement of remarks in which an associate urged ‘trial by combat.’ It was also the entire manufactured atmosphere of looming catastrophe; the increasingly wild myths about a reverse landslide election that was being stolen in some secret coup by our now-President. I defended the President’s right to bring any complaints to our legal system. The legal system spoke. The Electoral College spoke. As I stood up and said clearly at the time, the election was settled.”But that reality just opened a new chapter of even wilder and more unfounded claims. The leader of the free world cannot spend weeks thundering that shadowy forces are stealing our country and then feign surprise when people believe him and do reckless things. Sadly, many politicians sometimes make overheated comments or use metaphors that unhinged listeners might take literally. This was different. This was an intensifying crescendo of conspiracy theories, orchestrated by an outgoing president who seemed determined to either overturn the voters’ decision or else torch our institutions on the way out.The unconscionable behavior did not end when the violence began. Whatever our ex-President claims he thought might happen that day… whatever reaction he says he meant to produce… by that afternoon, he was watching the same live television as the rest of the world. A mob was assaulting the Capitol in his name. These criminals were carrying his banners, hanging his flags, and screaming their loyalty to him. It was obvious that only President Trump could end this. Former aides publicly begged him to do so. Loyal allies frantically called the Administration. But the President did not act swiftly. He did not do his job. He didn’t take steps so federal law could be faithfully executed, and order restored. Instead, according to public reports, he watched television happily as the chaos unfolded. He kept pressing his scheme to overturn the election! Even after it was clear to any reasonable observer that Vice President Pence was in danger… even as the mob carrying Trump banners was beating cops and breaching perimeters… the President sent a further tweet attacking his Vice President. Predictably and foreseeably under the circumstances, members of the mob seemed to interpret this as further inspiration to lawlessness and violence. Later, even when the President did halfheartedly begin calling for peace, he did not call right away for the riot to end. He did not tell the mob to depart until even later. And even then, with police officers bleeding and broken glass covering Capitol floors, he kept repeating election lies and praising the criminals. In recent weeks, our ex-President’s associates have tried to use the 74 million Americans who voted to re-elect him as a kind of human shield against criticism. Anyone who decries his awful behavior is accused of insulting millions of voters.That is an absurd deflection.74 million Americans did not invade the Capitol. Several hundred rioters did. And 74 million Americans did not engineer the campaign of disinformation and rage that provoked it.

“One person did.”

Now on the surface, those words seem powerful, until you realize that Mitch McConnell did not vote to convict Failure 45. He publicly admits that not only was Douche 45 responsible for the attack on the Capitol, he also admits that the justification for that attack, that Disgrace 45 lost the election due to fraud, is complete bullshit based on lies and conspiracy theories dreamed up by liars and bought and swallowed by morons.

But he did not vote to convict. Now I’ll answer your question.

Fuhrer 45 was not convicted because (A)the majority of the members of his political party, who are elected officials, know he’s guilty but are spineless cowards who are afraid of his base of racists, bigots and morons; (B)others in the Senate, and everyone else throughout this country, who genuinely believe Wants To F*ck His Daughter 45 did nothing wrong, are just as amoral as he is.

Compulsive liar? They don’t care.

Got tens of thousands of innocent Americans killed due to incompetence, apathy, and stupidity? Doesn’t matter.

Raging narcissist? Still their kind of guy.

Racist and bigot? They love him even more and want him to come over for a home visit.

End PPS.

Responsibility vs. Morality

GREED remains our Number 1 Problem at this time.

GREED is what drives people to commit most of our crimes. Who was it that said crime does not pay?

GREED is what defines the level of RESPONSIBILITY that we gravitate towards when we are making decisions. The benefits to self are more important, as an opinion based on greed, than any benefit which may accrue to Groups or Country. And who has the mental capacity to consider the Planet before Country or before Groups?

In turn Morality frequently requires decisions based on RESPONSIBILITY. Without considering the levels of RESPONSIBILITY ,  when deciding what is moral (or ethical), any decision can become very complex as defined by Immanuel Kant in the Categorical imperative.  By adhering to the KISS principle I believe that TheCode makes moral decisions simpler and more effective because RESPONSIBILITY provides a level which can be addressed by the decision being taken.

Thus we have a distinct relationship between Morality, Greed and Responsibility.

How does Morality tie into TheCode. I return to my ultimate benchmark of EVIL being trump. When a person is amoral it means that they are simply unaware of morality. When that person, particularly if they completely narcissistic,  wants to do something it is their decision and they will decide whether it is good or bad,  nice or nasty, rewarding or challenging based on how they feel about it. Any external opinion, assessment or evaluation is not even remotely of concern to them. If unfavourable or negative (to them) such “opinions” are “fake news” because they are “not real” TO THEM. That person is after all  the universe to themselves. Nothing else is of any importance whatsoever.

The oath of the president of the USA was totally meaningless to him. That oath signifies an acceptance of RESPONSIBILITY  for a country, its economy and the lives of nearly 400 MILLION people. Not an oath to protect himself or his family or  a  political party. In return the USA undertook to protect The President no matter what the cost! That was the contract.

When trump took the oath of Presidency of the USA it was, to him, just another contract, which he would weasel out of,  if it became inconvenient at any point. In the same way that it was a very regular activity of trump’s to refuse to pay his contractors for work done. In the same way that he did not consider the welfare of anyone other than HIMSELF. And the adoration of his fans whom he had persuaded that he was “THE BEST”. After all it was his RIGHT to refuse to pay if he decided that there was something that he could find fault with regarding any contract that he ever entered. Real or imagined did not matter (no morality) as long as he could reduce costs for that job. $100,000 dollars worth of lawyers fees was a profitable exchange for $780,000 worth of work and materials. The contractor could not afford the $100,000 because he was already out of pocket for far more than that amount on the contract. In trumps view an excellent outcome and good business. To trump the oath was “just another contract”! And lawyers were just a cost of doing business.

With regard to “his people” as long as they continued to worship at the shrine of the trump and maintain “loyalty” to the trump cult, all was well and “they were great people”. As soon as you disagreed, in any way whatsoever, trump would be out to “get you”. Even have you killed! As he instructed the mob to do with Nancy Pelosie and Mike Pence on 6th January.

The oath was “just another contract” which trump broke every time he lied, misinformed, avoided comment, avoided the truth, ignored racism, ignored violence and last of all encouraged violence to try and maintain his position of worship as president of the USA. He was never remotely concerned about ANY of his RESPONSIBILITIES. He was only concerned about SELF. The absolute bottom level of the RESPONSIBILITY scale. He was only concerned about being admired for his actions which he frequently misrepresented to the American People. All the lying he did to the American People is what led them to believe what a “wonderful person” he was and what led the people to violent actions on his behalf.

With regard to trumps impeachment hearing and the senate vote :   Trump may not be impeached (writing this 12/2 1040 my time = 11/2 1940 EST US) because the Republican Senators believe that they can vote for the GOP above, and before accepting responsibility for,  THE OATH which they themselves have taken when becoming senators and part of The Congress.

The impeachment should be based on the fact that trump took actions AGAINST the oath of office which he swore to uphold when he became president. Inciting the riots of January 6 was the final act of denial of trump’s oath of office. This act broke his contract WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE (all Americans). As he destroyed that contract so he should be impeached which should ensure that he does not enjoy a single benefit as a result of HAVING BEEN a President of the USA. No pension, no security, no travel and no title. Just another American thug.

The Republican Senators, themselves, are in fact in breach of their own respective oaths of office by letting trump off the hook. Their oath was to protect THE AMERICAN PEOPLE (all of them as a whole) and not just to protect their cult leader from loosing face, popularity and his ability to collect funds for their Party. That oath is taken by Senators because it raises (well, supposed to raise!) them above self, above the party and (should!!) force them to take a higher lever of responsibilitiy for THE COUNTRY and all of its people. Peacefully.

We will see whether the Republican Party is capable of honoring their oath, their contract with the people of the USA and not just consider RESPONSIBILITY  for themselves and maybe their Party but for the USA.

Keep safe,  Jude

Republicans at WAR with Democrats

Civil War:

To all intents and purposes the USA is in the middle of a civil war. The Republicans vs the Democrats. Why are they at war? Because the Republican Party has become a  RELIGION . In fact it is now a Cult – The trump Cult. The trump has turned the Republican Party into a cult, the trumpists , which is the worst form of religion on the planet. A cult displays the worst characteristics possible under the guise of a religion (mainly for tax purposes). Similar to Scientology, to my mind, is now a cult and no longer the healing group that L.Ron Hubbard had in mind.

Edit: 15/Jan/2021 Today I heard a very accurate definition of The Ruspublican’s problem. Their behavior has become TRIBAL rather than a POLITICAL. Wow. Too true! Just like the ANC (African National Congress) in South Africa.

The Republican Party :

Also referred to as GOP (Grand Old Party) is now a body-devided. The visible and active side of this body is now (Jan, 2020) a cult with trump as its leader and Commander in Chief (acting as a dictator). They will continue to be seen as this cult until the sane (and VERY CONCERNED) members break away from the trump cult and reform the Republican Party as the GOP. This can only happen if there is a person who is strong enough to lead this party. At this time I am afraid that the current “leadership” is so stuck in their policy of GREED (Profit is everything) and their FEAR (total ignorance and misunderstanding) of socialism that they cannot grasp the concept of a united America.

In terms of TheCode – RRR (Respect before Responsibility before Rights) these leaders are all stuck at the responsibility Level of 1 ( = SELF). They certainly cannot even claim that they are at responsibility Level 2 ( = FAMILY) because they are prepared to sacrifice their families to ensure that they keep their political jobs. They have zero/none/no RESPECT for their opposition political party as trump has convinced them that The Democrats are now “the enemy”.  This FEAR (Yes! It is the fear and complete lack of understanding) of the Democratic Party and their objectives which results in the conviction the Democratic Party is out to destroy the Republican Party. It is because trump recognized this flaw in the Republican Party and set out to use that flaw to further his own ends. (see:  trump-as-dictator for a description of trump’s EVIL agenda).

The paragraph title refers to the WikipediA document on the Republican Party but, unfortunately, the personal GREED, which borders on insanity, for many of the present leaders of this party has reduced any and all of their policies to a) Keep my job b) If I don’t support trump and enable his madness I will loose my job c) If trump is impeached I will loose my job because “the enemy” may treat me the way I deserve. And d) Again to Keep my job and my “position of power”. Even if democracy, the people of America and my oath of office are damaged (or destroyed and go down in flames) in the process THIS IS THE ONLY POLICY THAT IS IN THE MINDS of trumpist’s (people who are part of the trump Cult rather than representatives of the American people ie. elected politicians). It is unfortunate that The Republican Party do not have any active policies in play at this time. The trump’s “we are going to make America great again” means “I will ensure that everything I do makes ME richer regardless of the cost to America AS A COUNTRY or the American people”. There is of course an advantage in having money in the Treasury because trump will find a way of getting some of it. Hence cutting off payments to the WHO regardless of who may have been harmed by that action. This complete lack of active policies also ensures that there is nothing for the Democratic Party to criticise. Rather a significant problem. Particularly for America as a country.

The Republican Party and the disgusting “so-called” journalists who contribute to some of the social media world and sensational “news” media – such as Fox News, have a choice. They can precipitate this terrible Second American Civil War by continuing to: a) further enable trump and ANY part of his EVIL agenda b) mislead the American people about the objectives and ideals of the Democratic Party and c) ignore the first and most important part of TheCode – RRR (Respect before Responsibility before Rights) – being RESPECT.

-OR-

The Republican Party can gather any NON-trump supporters left in the Party to form an alliance of the true GOP as a group of people who can a) RESPECT the Oath they took when they took office b) RESPECT the wishes of ALL Americans who have the interest and well-being of America and the rest of the Planet at heart c) DISCONNECT from trump and any and all of his mis-informed and mis-guided followers d) RESPECT and try to understand the new President of the USA, President Joe Biden, and his policies (he has 7+million more supporters in your DEMOCRACY!) e) SUPPORT him in his efforts to rebuild a very tarnished and Disunited States of America that has been created by The Republicans mistake of supporting and electing trump f) understand and apply TheCode .

Last but not least is that trump AND HIS MISGUIDED FOLLOWERS MUST ALL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR TERRIBLE LACK OF JUDGEMENT AND THEIR DISREGARD OF THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES OF THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTION. This is the only message that the trumpist’s will clearly understand. Every day that this is delayed increases the inappropriate feeling of being “done” which trump has INITIATED and which he continues to PROMOTE ! Not only does trump continue to promote the lies, mis-information and discontent but WOW (word-of-mouth) makes this discontent far more successful that truth. Rather like Covid-19.

It is trump’s EVIL and AMORAL use of Covid-19 to create chaos in the USA which is causing the death of more than 4000 American citizens per day ie.

4000 DEATHS PER DAY

This is more than the total number of deaths caused by external terrorists on 9/11 !!!   And Mitch McConnell, the supposed leader of the Republican Party in the Senate, cannot convene The Senate to sanction (Impeach AND apply the 25th amendment) on trump. IMHO he needs to be held accountable as a trump accomplice. Any person who continues to defend trump in any manner whatsoever needs to be charged as an accompliuce!!

The Democratic Party :

The Democratic Party on the other hand have definite policies (AT THIS TIME), objectives and principles which they wish to put in place. In terms of TheCode The Democratic Party have a significant responsibility level. This is Level 5 (= THE PLANET) because part of President Joe Biden’s plans which include POSITIVE actions regarding Climate Change.  Level 5 is about as high as we (human beings) can aspire to at this time! They are not stuck at level 1 = SELF like trump and his cult. Please note that 2=FAMILY, 3=Social Groups and 4=Country which are all more in keeping with the Oath of Office, which trump does not even comprehend, never mind understand and which Joe Biden will take on January 20th with  understanding and intention.

While trump and his followers in the Republican Party are in confused disarray between those who believe in and are committed to their Oath of service and those who believe any or all of the trump BS (including the non-fact that The Democratic Party is intent on turning America into a socialist state) what they are achieving is the RAPID growth of insurrection and non-peaceful riots in the name of justifiable protests.

This situation is actually less harmful that the Covid-19 pandemic BUT has the POTENTIAL of doing far more harm that Covid-19 IN THE LONG TERM.  Covid-19 will either be significantly impacted by the vaccine,  will diminish in intensity as the trump-promoted herd immunity begins to take effect or will have killed sufficient potential victims for the bell-curve of deaths to start diminishing.  Considering that the death rate for week 1 – 2021 is over 40,000 the top of the curve will be at > 500,000 (half-a-million) and the downward curve will record many more deaths. IMHO at least another 150 to 200 thousand people will die before the USA will be in a position to become optimistic about normality.

The trump would have been advised by someone in his entourage of this possibility. Whether trump was capable of understanding or vaguely comprehending this fact trump made the decision that his presidency and his continued access to lots of funding/money was more important TO HIM than those number of deaths. In fact he made the decision that the chaos caused by Covid-19 would be a very useful “distraction” in the event of him not being able to win or manipulate his success in the 2020 election.  BTW remember that the main reason that he believes (and trump HAS convinced himself) that the election was rigged is because his efforts to rig the election were not successful and he does not believe it possible that Joe Biden was able to do a better job of “rigging” than he was.

So the incoming Democratic President is faced with 1) the Covid-19 crises created largely by trump’s incompetence and desire for chaos 2) the American racial unrest which has been “encouraged” by trump to create more unrest 3) the pathetic animosity of the Republican Party – another level of hate and unrest aggravated by trump at every opportunity 4) the economic crises – which is actually recovering on its own now that trump is distracted by his loss of the presidency 5) the many unstable “solutions” to international relationships that trump has managed to use as vote-promoting exercises 6) the MANY and serious breaks that trump has managed to create with all of America’s allies and 7) the complete disarray in all of America’s security, judiciary and police that the trump has created with all his inappropriate firings and hirings.  I wonder how many challenges I have missed? I have sent President Joe Biden a letter of congratulation on his election. I would be most surprised if he manages to see it in among his thousands of far more pressing issues but perhaps it will carry some good Karma.

Joe Biden won by a thin thread (7/300  of the population). 7+ million votes is not so “slim” but he has many millions of Americans whom trump has turned into a mis-guided and dangerous group of people. I do so hope that The Republican Party can find a new leader to lead them to some semblance of order and an understanding of TheCode. Co-operation with President Joe Biden and a bi-partisan approach to all of the challenges listed above will ensure a swift recovery of American Pride and achievement. They will grow to be stronger than ever. But if The Democrats continue to be treated as an enemy the Second American Civil War will blossom into reality and the chaos will continue for many years to come.

One really good thing which has happened to The Democratic Party is that they won the two Senate Seats in Georgia. There is hope that President Joe Biden will be able to solve many of Americas problems with the support of previous Presidents and hopefully without even the presence of trump. I do hope that Impeachment will exclude trump from the title of President in any shape or form and that this is accomplished as quickly as possible.

Failure of USA Government

The one thing that trump has achieved is to highlight the failures of the USA Government PRACTICES as a whole. I hope that President Joe Biden has the strength, health and tenacity to set at least some of this right.

See my letter to the President.

The USA Gov has drifted far away from their own constitution in their pursuit of Greed.

The best analysis is from The Lucretia Report. This is that document with thanks The Lucretia Report and Ian Stephens :

The Lucretia Report

Americans have long claimed to have the best system of government in the world, with checks and balances, a separation of powers, and cadre of competent administrators who have only the best for the people at heart. The events of this past year however have proven more than any other period in living memory though that that is not and never was true. People long said that our system of government was impeccable, but in fact it was only sustained by luck and the willingness of people in power to sustain it. It has only remained intact because no one ever levied enough stress on it. But that stress was applied in 2020, and our government failed to meet its stated goals because of it.

The United States Constitution, which lays out the system by which our government operates, provides a number of goals in its preamble.

“to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”

“To form a more perfect union” is of course empty rhetoric, the meaning of which can be changed from one person to another depending on your definition of “perfect.” From there though 2020 can demonstrate the failure of our government to meet each and every one of these goals.

The state sets out to “establish justice” yet in 2020’s opening act it was proven that some people are above the law as long as they can maintain the loyalty of at least 34 votes in the United States Senate, and in the closing days of 2020 it has proven that violations of the law are acceptable and forgivable as long as the criminals at question can maintain the favor of a President with pardon power. Meanwhile, as wealthy white criminals are allowed to walk free, 200 black men a year are shot to death by police in the United States, often for minor crimes or no crime at all. This was brought so clearly into focus this year by the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks, Jacob Blake, and more. Our government has failed to establish justice.

The Constitution claims that it has a goal to “ensure domestic tranquility,” yet the United States has no such thing. Resulting from the Government’s failure to establish justice, America saw the largest protest movement in the country’s history, with a backlash of right-wing terrorism to match. The United States is more divided than it has been at any point since the civil war and faces a greater threat from domestic terrorism than it has faced since Reconstruction. The nation is all but tranquil.

The founders claimed that their system of government would “provide for the common defense” and “promote the general welfare,” yet a controllable disease has ravaged the country, killing so many that we have come to be desensitized to thousands of daily deaths and accepted as a fact of life the reality that we can be struck down at any moment. Meanwhile millions are unemployed, millions impoverished, millions homeless, millions hungry. Breadlines stretch for miles in allegedly the wealthiest nation in history. The general welfare and the common defense have been forgotten.

Our government promised to “secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity” yet this year has proven how fragile the “blessings of liberty” are. A free and fair election was upheld only by the good grace of a few people in powerful positions, but there is no guarantee that the next time this happens – and without change it will happen again – that people so noble will occupy those same positions.

The American government has failed to achieve its stated goals and has by that act proven that it is insufficient to be trusted with the United States. The only logical and righteous recourse is major reform. We have a government where Senators representing less than 15% of the population can hold the country hostage, where wildly popular and necessary policy cannot be enacted, where far too much of the wealth and priority of the nation is concentrated into an ever-growing smaller portion of the population, and the malevolence or incompetence of a single man can throw the country into a tailspin. That is an inherently unstable system of government – one that could fail or collapse at any moment.

Such radical failure requires radical solutions. It requires the abolition of the plutocratic and undemocratic institutions of voter suppression and rule by the minority. It requires the destruction of the white supremacist institutions that have ensured that the adage of “all men are created equal” is not and cannot be a reality. It requires a redistribution of wealth and a turning over of the system that has allowed but a few people to control the nation’s resources and the spoils of prosperity.

The system will not correct itself unaided. Until such radical reform is undertaken, until the corrupt and broken system is torn down and built back up, the system of government that failed us in 2020 – that always failed to live up to its promise – will continue to fail us and will continue to perpetuate an unequal, undemocratic, and unstable cycle of despair.

Solution to TODAY’S Problem 1:

This certainly lays out a blueprint for the new government of the USA for 2021. If President Joe Biden places some importance on the issues raised in this doc. he can start sorting the problems of the USA. The USA is the most powerful country in the world militarily. But morally it is being shown up in a VERY bad light. The USA is, unfortunately at this time, THE starting point for sorting out the rest of the world. Getting the US Constitution functional is certainly a start.

A Solution to TODAY’S Problem 2:

Another problem, and possibly even a more significant problem than the functionality of the Constitution of the USA, is the problem of SOCIAL MEDIA. I do believe that Sasha Baron Cohen puts this into perspective. Please watch this video:

And with that I would like to take the opportunity to wish all those who have taken the trouble to register with RRR  AND their families throughout the world,

A Happy and Healthy 2021

May many of your wishes come true and may you have the strength to apply decisions based on TheCode,
