It astounds me that commentators who I respect on this site are so beguiled by Trump, arguably the worst president in US history. He has destroyed the Republican party, entrenched left wing government by helping the Democrats win the two Georgian Senate seats, destroyed trust in the US Republic (internally and externally), divided the country, ignited passions of conflict and bloodshed. Previously I thought he should be ignored after losing office – now he should be imprisoned for crimes against the United States and its people. The man is a fool, scoundrel, grifter, charlatan, cozener, shyster, hic and conman. It’s how he has lived his life – as the liar in chief. A man whose lies are so frequent that they disguise the rare truth.
There is no doubt that he lost the election – clearly and emphatically. There was no serious voter fraud. There is no doubt that he incited violence yesterday – encouraging a mob to descent upon the Capitol and bringing disrespect to the US Constitution which he has failed to uphold.
To suggest that Antifa was behind the violence at the Capitol is to hold to a fiction and a conspiracy theory – Trump’s words are clear where he encouraged his supporters to come to the Capitol and show strength. If it wasn’t for Trump there would not have been a mob entering the Capitol.
Trump has therefore become a traitor to his country and should be tried for treason. Far from being forgotten as I had once hoped, he now has to be punished for numerous crimes against the United States and against the 50 States of the Union. He should be the infamous example of anarchy and also as the traitor in chief to the Republic and to the Republican Party.
If there is now a severe leftward shift in the USA – as I had warned previously – it’s because Trump treated the presidency as a means of enriching himself and his family and friends. He has violated a sacred trust and is without doubt the most infamous of presidents. Trump is the agent of the leftward shift – and his supporters on this blog will one day come to realise that fact.
And to think people were advocating that Pence should violate his oath and attempt a coup!!! If the Vice President could do this, why wouldn’t Gore have done the same in 2001? It’s absolute madness.
