The Systematic Dismantling Of America's Institutions Of Government

Beginning to wrap one's head around the breakneck pace of information which has happened in America the last four weeks under Trump. It appears a Systematic Dismantling of America's Institutions of Government are taking place.

First, can anyone effectively keep up with the flurry of changes occurring in Washington, D.C. Everyday, there is a new story, article, point of panic, a concerning nominee for a cabinet office, resignation, new announcements, Tweets, "Breaking News", and more resulting in a state of outright chaos in America.

Eventually, this amount of an unstable ship sinking on the high seas will seep down in the Capitols of States in the Union, County or Parrish Units of Government and municipal operations -- if some forms of what's occurring at the top of America's Governmental pyramid have not already.

Trump and company are doing their best to create an unbalanced matrix where the chains of authority and governmental functions - all of them - are squarely centered in the hands of individuals in the White House, seeking to destroy what is left of modern day Democracy, held on by a string.

However, these actions have been transpiring for awhile, bit by bit as greed capitalism has become the mainstay since the 1980's based "Reagan Years".

The Alabama Trump - AL Governor Robert Bentley Impeachment Gets Renewed Effort

Gov. Robert Bentley thought he had solved his problems. But he may have made them worse.

At least two state representatives - who throughout the whole Bentley scandal over the last year have been judicious and slow to cast stones- have had enough and are ready to act.

Reps. Corey Harbison and Randall Shedd, both Republicans from Cullman County, say the time for tolerance is gone. They will begin today to try to introduce an impeachment resolution on the House floor, a move - difficult though it may be -- to bypass the inactive impeachment committee and send the issue directly to the Senate for trial of the governor.

"Something has to give," Harbison said. "Public trust toward all of us is at an all-time low. We have to get some answers."

"I just don't believe the state can stand another two years of this," Shedd said. "It's very disturbing."

The resolution, similar but expanded from one introduced last year, cites ethics charges against the governor. It says he misused state property and broke campaign finance law by failing to disclose a campaign loan in a timely way. It says using campaign funds to pay attorney's fees for Mason was a big problem, and argues that Bentley violated the public trust and broke the law by waiting until 2018 to call a new election to fill Jeff Sessions senate seat.

But it's not just the legal problems that spurred action. Putting Mason on a state plane to attend the inauguration of Donald Trump last month - while taking a "date" he refused to identify on a state plane - was a slap in the face to people who supported him.

The appointment of former Attorney General Luther Strange to the Senate looked like a Bentley attempt to dismantle the AG's investigation of him. The subsequent appointment of former Marshall County District Attorney Steve Marshall did little to ease the minds of those who smelled a rat.

"I'm troubled by the appointment," Shedd said. "There may not be a deal cut but it sure seems like it."

At a time when Democrats need to be lions, most have turned to lambs at Trumps feet

Source: New York Daily News

At a time when a backbone is needed, the Democratic Party does not have one. With few exceptions, it is a spineless group. They have no earthly idea how to effectively oppose Donald Trump. They have no idea how to regain power. They have no idea what they are doing right now. Daily, they fail to stand up for their constituents — so much so that it is genuinely hard right now tell most Democrats in the Senate from their Republican colleagues.

So far, and this actually came as a shock to me — 14 Democrats in the Senate have voted for every single nominee of Trump’s that has been approved thus far. They are:

Joe Donnelly of Ind., Dianne Feinstein of Calif., Heidi Heitkamp of N.D., Maggie Hassan of N.H., Amy Klobuchar of Minn., Angus King of Maine, Tim Kaine of Va., Claire McCaskill of Mo., Joe Manchin III of W.Va., Jack Reed of R.I., Jeanne Shaheen of N.H., Brian Schatz of Hawaii, Sheldon Whitehouse R.I., and Mark Warner of Va.

Another 21 Democrats voted to confirm four out of five of Trump’s nominees that have been approved thus far. They are:

First off, Senator Christopher Murphy of Conn. voted to approve four out five of Trump’s confirmed nominees, but abstained from one vote a piece. In other words, he failed to vote no on a single Trump candidate.

Then voting yes on four out of five of Trump’s confirmed nominees, and voting no on just one are:

Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Tammy Baldwin of Wis., Michael Bennet of Colo., Maria Cantwell of Wash., Benjamin Cardin of Md., Thomas Carper of Del., Bob Casey of Pa., Richard Durbin of Ill., Tammy Duckworth of Ill., Al Franken of Minn., Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, Patrick Leahy of Vt., Edward Markey of Mass., Robert Menendez of N.J., Patty Murray of Wash., Bill Nelson of Fla., Gary Peters of Mich., Chuck Schumer of N.Y., Debbie Stabenow of Mich., and Jon Tester of Mont.

If This Is True, This Is A HUGE PROBLEM. HUGE!! This means from reading the article, only Kristen Gillibrand have voted NO on Each of the Trump Nominees thus Far. Not even BERNIE folks, only Gillibrand.

If this is the way the Democrat Party will ROLL, the Party is DONE and look for Trumpland to not only continue but stomp out the rest of what's left of Democrats in 2018 up for the Senate and whatever is left in State Legislators.


Meanwhile, thank you KRISTEN GILLIBRAND for standing STRONG and appears ALONE.

'Calexit' supporters can start work to make ballot

Source: The Hill

Californians who want their state to secede from the United States can now start collecting signatures to put the initiative on the 2018 ballot.

The Yes California Independence Campaign has been around for at least two years, but saw the election of President Trump only increase momentum for the so-called “Calexit” cause. Trump lost California by more than 4 million votes, fueling interest in a Calexit—a play on the British Brexit campaign that saw that country's voters decide to leave the European Union.

The California Secretary of State’s office announced that the group could begin collecting signatures on Thursday.

The group needs 585,407 signatures from registered voters over the next 180 days to qualify for the ballot.

If the 2018 ballot initiative passes, it would force a 2019 statewide special election asking voters if they want California to become an independent country.

And maybe, just maybe, this #Calexit Move will make some of those folks in the Middle wake up and realize Cheeto is destroying American Democracy and Unity as we knew it.

CIA says Russia intervened to help Trump win White House - From Reuters

The CIA has concluded that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help President-elect Donald Trump win the White House, and not just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, a senior U.S. official said on Friday.

U.S. intelligence agencies have assessed that as the 2016 presidential campaign drew on, Russian government officials devoted increasing attention to assisting Donald Trump's effort to win the election, the U.S. official familiar with the finding told Reuters on Friday night on condition of anonymity.

Citing U.S. officials briefed on the matter, the Washington Post reported on Friday that intelligence agencies had identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, including the chairman of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, to WikiLeaks.

It's True Folks!! All of it. Every last bit of what was suspected as been proven by the Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.) of the United States of America.

What is the definition of Treason under 18 U.S. Code 2381:

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

The Electors of the Electoral College -- Should STRONGLY Consider invoking The Federalist Papers #68 as Donald Trump cannot under the C.I.A. proven information, take the office of President of the United States:

"Nothing was more to be desired than that every practicable obstacle should be opposed to cabal, intrigue, and corruption. These most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally have been expected to make their approaches from more than one querter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.

How could they better gratify this, than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union? But the convention have guarded against all danger of this sort, with the most provident and judicious attention.

They have not made the appointment of the President to depend on any preexisting bodies of men, who might be tampered with beforehand to prostitute their votes; but they have referred it in the first instance to an immediate act of the people of America, to be exerted in the choice of persons for the temporary and sole purpose of making the appointment.

And they have excluded from eligibility to this trust, all those who from situation might be suspected of too great devotion to the President in office. No senator, representative, or other person holding a place of trust or profit under the United States, can be of the numbers of the electors.

Thus without corrupting the body of the people, the immediate agents in the election will at least enter upon the task free from any sinister bias. Their transient existence, and their detached situation, already taken notice of, afford a satisfactory prospect of their continuing so, to the conclusion of it.

The business of corruption, when it is to embrace so considerable a number of men, requires time as well as means. Nor would it be found easy suddenly to embark them, dispersed as they would be over thirteen (now 50) States, in any combinations founded upon motives, which though they could not properly be denominated corrupt, might yet be of a nature to mislead them from their duty."

Or more simply, take a listen to Keith Olbermann break all of this down:
