Watching Trump And Co. Obsessively Tamper With The Jury

Because in the court of public opinion, it seems the jury is still out —

— out of its freaking mind for not seeking or establishing a proper check on the president.

The president has often used this rhetoric to great effect as he continues to abuse and blur the lines that the separation of powers under the United States Constitution has drawn.

The President’s perverse tampering with the public while Special Counsel Mueller seeks to conclude his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 national election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign is indicative of pathologically masking a guilty conscience of wrongdoing. The DOJ along with a republican congress seems to be having a hard time finding the behavior and attitude of the president in the least bit suspicious.

The president is not pushing the limits of presidential powers to preserve or advance the sovereignty and democracy of the United States. President Trump uses this power solely to protect and uplift his narcissistic self. David Graham has written as much in an article published Thursday in The Atlantic.

Past presidents have frequently tested the limits of their powers — and of the Constitution — on national security, war powers, and push-pull interactions with the legislature. But Trump seems to be pushing against the limits of his presidential power almost entirely to protect himself. “He certainly uses presidential power for personal purposes,” says Julian Zelizer, a professor of history at Princeton. “That’s the place he uses it more aggressively — to protect himself, to protect his inner circle. That’s clearly where he’s most assertive.”

This avenue of tampering that exploits presidential power or bend it towards his will as president of the United States ultimately sidelines democrats from ascertaining a proper defense and offense. The president can also be seen as witness tampering their testimonies of cause and for concern of the given and crass potential for high crimes and misdemeanors by this president. Under the current set of circumstances democrats seem highly susceptible to being intimidated by explicit tactics and political threats to remain under spoken or overly prudent with a response.

There is no question that the president can do the unthinkable and he has been granted this power by electoral college vote to do as he pleases. This however does not make it ethically or morally right in the court of public opinion. As participating constituents in a super power democracy it is imperative that we make ourselves abundantly aware that as a collective we are to remain the ultimate check of those powers bestowed upon President Trump.

— out to lunch on what has happened to the democracy we pledge to and hold dearly and the impact it has and will have for the foreseeable future.

“I am not supposed to be involved with the FBI. I’m not supposed to be doing the kind of things that I would love to be doing. And I’m very frustrated by it.” The next month, he [President Trump] told a New York Times reporter that he has the “absolute right to do what I want to do with the Justice Department.” — The New Republic

The public seems acutely disillusioned and profoundly unaware, of the peculiarity of this sort of governance. Just like the president is absolutely oblivious to the political costs, we are unable to make sense of the political toll and or baggage of incompetence. This is compounded by the sycophancy installed within our institutions and the willfully blind among us providing an enduring narcissistic supply of counterfeit political capital. The president along with his sidekick and attorney in Rudy Giuliani tampers with our sensibilities by offering nonsensical benefit of the doubt reasonings. Mr. Giuliani is blatantly defending the indefensible by counseling the president through a string of inchoate offenses occurring before, and for the duration of Trump’s presidency.

An inchoate offense, preliminary crime, or inchoate crime, incomplete crime is a crime of preparing for or seeking to commit another crime. The most common example of an inchoate offense is “attempt”. “Inchoate offense” has been defined as: “Conduct deemed criminal without actual harm being done, provided that the harm that would have occurred is one the law tries to prevent.”[1][2]

How the public has managed to look the other way, quite broadly, is beyond the pale and quite frankly may be a symptom of persistent tampering by the president and his minions. Be mindful of what you are wishing for and is being prescribed by Trump for a democracy that ails you — because what you get is something that has been noticeably tampered with.

— out of order on looking the other way or outwardly consenting to obvious presidential racketeering or bigotry by arguing political correctness

The president is only concerned with the power to compel others to bend to his will in the most fascist manner. Trump has increasingly misemployed presidential powers while lazily or dismissively not study weighty complex policy issues or prepare for summits that engage in substantive diplomacy.

Asked if he’s prepared for the North Korea summit, Trump assured a reporter that he is. He then explained that he believes little preparation is required for something like negotiating nuclear disarmament with an erratic, delusional, hermetic dictator. “I think I’m very well prepared,” Trump said, “I don’t think I have to prepare very much. It’s about attitude. It’s about willingness to get things done.” — NYMag.com

🤔“I think I’m very well prepared,” Trump said, “I don’t think I have to prepare very much. It’s about attitude.🤨 What!?!

We see the blissfulness in ignorance with his foreign policy that askew bullying and denote facetiousness. We see utter bliss in ignorance with his domestic policy that heavily leans meritocratic by hierarchy — race, wealth, or celebrity status — that rewards an unquestionable show of loyalty, no matter how disruptively corrupt it may be in appearance and in practice. To the many among us it seems refreshingly unconventional which leads to a misapprehension that concedes to Trump’s rule as some sort of unorthodox strategy to make America Great Again.

“We have a great country. You should stand for our national anthem,” Trump told reporters Friday. “You shouldn’t go in a locker room when our national anthem is played. I am going to ask all of those people to recommend to me — because that’s what they’re protesting — people that they think were unfairly treated by the justice system. And I understand that. And I’m going to ask them to recommend to me people that were unfairly treated. Friends of theirs or people that they know about, and I’m going to take a look at those applications. And if I find and my committee finds that they’re unfairly treated, then we will pardon them or at least let them out.”

How effective would that be to arbitrarily spend your time in office to pick and choose from millions of Americans who have been treated unfairly by a long standing judicial system of callousness towards minorities or the impoverished? Would it be best to simply keep it in place while you score political points for picking at the many wounds it has created? Is the charlantry of this deal to gain subservience to his patriarchal highness and to pivot our attention away from the Mueller probe in exchange for his indignant compassion and unchecked power as president?

Do we all have to buy whatever the Kardashians are selling too? So that she can make one whimsical humanitarian appeal to bring attention to the many normalized injustices of America?

Absurd.
