Indict and Try President Trump

January 6, 2021

President Trump believes that he is not merely chief executive, but he is the embodiment of national will and is justified to act against persons and parties who seek to replace him illegally.

A MAGA protest rally planned in Washington, DC the day Congress will certify results of the 2020 Presidential election. That call for a “rally” is a clear attempt to disrupt finalizing results of the Presidential election and clearing the way for a peaceful transition of power.

That is incitement of revolution and former President Trump should be subject to indictment and imprisoned if convicted.

Anticipating trouble 10 former U.S. Secretaries of Defense warned that it would take the country into “dangerous, unlawful and unconstitutional territory” to involve the military in an attempt to remain in office.

In plain English, President Trump is inciting sedition that will precipitate a Civil War.

American Politics in Transition

January 6, 2021

Every Republican President from Dwight Eisenhower through Bush 43 supported the ideas embodied in Woodrow Wilson’s political religion—until the election of President #45, Donald J. Trump. That President took American government in a new “Nationalist” direction.

Due to President #45’s incompetence, he was defeated by an old 60’s Liberal and Democrats are pinning the hopes on a revival of 60’s Liberalism that is Internationalist in orientation and reliant upon the expertise of an expanded “Administrative State.”

This year, 2021 Anno Domini, the world has changed.

Domestically we are relieved of the burden of segregation and we understand that so-called “Great Society” programs were proven failures. For a full examination, please read my review of Amity Shlaes “new history” of the Great Society. Reliance on government as 60’s Liberals are want to do will fail.

In foreign affairs, too, the world had changed and new policies are needed.

The Soviet Union has died and Russia poses a long threat to our national interest, but first must rebuild the old Russian Empire. Only Communist China remains as a surviving memory of Marx, Lenin, Stalin and Mao. Islamic radicalism has risen and controls the government of Iran. See my analysis of the rise of Islam.

As president Biden assumes office, he will face new realities that cannot be addressed by 60s Liberalism. That suggests that American politics is in transition and the nation must wait for new leadership to appear. The men in the GOP let us down, so I’m betting that if new leadership that is required can be found, that will arise from a new cohort of Republican Party women politicians.

After Georgia

January 5, 2021

Much has been said about the importance of today’s election for two U.S. Senators in Georgia. Some believe that if Democrats control the White House, Senate and House of Representatives, one Party domination will forever change American politics.

That reasoning relies on the assumption that a viable Republican Party will emerge after Trump leaves office.

In a recent blog I argue that the decline of the GOP was assured by Republican Internationalists from Eisenhower through Bush 43 that led to the fluke election of a political novice with a view that 1950s America was better and that we could return to that better era by affirming a nationalism intending to “Make America Great.” Unstated was the assumption that making the world great was a stupid idea.

Yet that was the civil religion of the United States since Woodrow Wilson committed the United States to a democratic project that saw the power of the United States committed to spreading democracy across the globe.

That “globalism” led to wars and war weariness which Trump saw as his “main chance” and proclaimed as recently as yesterday in a speech in Atlanta that he did not get us into another war.

Trump was rejected for his incompetence and left open the field for a competent successor who rejects the Internationalist ideology and aligns the United States with other nations affirming their independence and the priority of national sovereignty.

Unfortunately, no current elected Republican Governor, Senator or House Member has given any indication that they understand what even Trump vaguely intuited. Until a leader appears conveying that insight, the GOP will cease to be a national political Party.

Trump plans Civil War

January 4, 2021

Is President Trump planning a Civil War in order to stay in Office?

On December 19 President Trump “Tweeted”·

Dec 19, 2020: Peter Navarro releases 36-page report alleging election fraud ‘more than sufficient’ to swing victory to Trump https://washex.am/3nwaBCe. A great report by Peter. Statistically impossible to have lost the 2020 Election. Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild

Three days after the President’s “tweet” I asked in my personal “Blog” whether the President would attempt to stay in office. I sensed that President Donald Trump was a recalcitrant, sore loser.

However, going back far as February 2018 when the President expressed a desire to hold a 4th of July parade to emulate France’s celebration of Bastille Day, the thought occurred to me that President Trump was capable of such an unconstitutional act.

What are the reasons that President Trump might reject the peaceful transition of power after losing an election?

First, President Trump took the United States in a new “nationalist” direction. He has no friends among “mainline” GOP leadership.

Second, Donald Trump is a political novice who rejected the GOP’s leadership and virtually alone took the United States in a new “nationalist” direction.

Third, because he is a novice politician, Trump was unaware that ballot theft and buying of votes is how Democrats in America’s big cities have stayed in power since 1935 and did nothing during the last three years to push for electoral reform and prosecution of “Big City” Democrat bosses.

Fourth, President Trump believes that he is not merely chief executive, but he is the embodiment of national will and is justified to act against persons and parties who seek to replace him illegally.

A MAGA protest rally is planned in Washington, DC the day Congress will certify results of the 2020 Presidential election. That call for a “rally” is a clear attempt to disrupt finalizing results of the Presidential election and clearing the way for a peaceful transition of power.

That was the occasion for issuing a warning by 10 former U.S. Secretaries of Defense who argued that it would take the country into “dangerous, unlawful and unconstitutional territory” to involve the military in an attempt to remain in office.

In plain English, President Trump has announced that he will precipitate Civil War.
