An Open Letter to Congressman Reed: Demand Trump's Resignation

Dear Congressman Reed:

I call on you to ask Donald Trump to resign from the Presidency in order to save our democracy. Please let me explain.

 

Your Pre-2016 Election Support For Donald Trump: Get Tough On Russia!

 

Donald Trump was riling up the crowd at a rally in August 2016 over the possibility that Hillary Clinton would appoint Supreme Court Justices who would take away their Second Amendment rights. He stepped over the line when he made a statement that some may interpret as a call for assassinating Clinton or the Supreme Court Justices. "If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people — maybe there is, I don’t know." Even if you argue that no sane person would interpret this as a call for assassination, not all of Trump's many millions of followers are sane.

During the second Presidential debate on October 9, 2016, Trump told Hillary Clinton that he was going to have his attorney general appoint a special prosecutor to look into Clinton’s emails and throw her in jail. For a President to announce he was going to have his political opponent investigated and thrown in jail is unprecedented. It is the stuff of banana republics.

These statements prompted me to write a column for my blog about two weeks before the 2016 election entitled "Donald Trump Is An Existential Threat To American Democracy." None of Trump’s pre-election statements seemed to alarm you too much, Congressman Reed. You just smiled to yourself and said, “Donald Trump—he’s my kind of guy.” You had endorsed Donald Trump well before he made these statements, but even after he made them you worked so hard to get him elected that he appointed you to be a vice-chair of his transition team

A Lesson From Donald Trump's Grandnephew, Baby William, and the Corona Virus: Donald Trump Doesn't Care About You!

Submitted by Robin Messing on Mon, 05/04/2020 - 7:38am

The following video by Now This News documents the short-sightedness and negligence of the Trump Administration that has allowed the Corona virus epidemic to become much more widespread and deadly within the U.S. than it need have been. I can’t stress enough how well done it is and how important it is for everyone to watch it and pass it around. WATCH IT NOW!!!

 

 

 

Donald Trump Is Mentally Ill. Support Our Troops By Impeaching And Removing Him.

Submitted by Robin Messing on Sun, 01/12/2020 - 10:11pm

Donald Trump claims to be a very stable genius. How stable is he? Is he stable enough to trust him having his finger on the nuclear trigger? Or should he be removed via Section 4 of the 25th Amendment?

 

It is almost impossible to keep track of the numerous truly bizarre behaviors that President Trump has exhibited over the last three years. Fortunately, Helen Kennedy compiled a list of over 50 such incidents that she posted on Twitter. Click on this tweet and follow the thread for a trip that starts down memory lane and ends in The Twilight Zone.

 

An Open Letter To Congressman Tom Reed About Impeachment: Pt. 2-Destroying Republican Complaints Against Impeachment

Submitted by Robin Messing on Wed, 12/11/2019 - 6:00pm

This is the second part of a two part letter to Congressman Tom Reed explaining why he should impeach Donald Trump. It covers Donald Trump's attempt to coerce Ukraine into muddling the 2020 election. Topics not included in the House's Articles of Impeachment but which should be considered when evaluating Donald Trump's fitness to continue holding office were covered in Part 1. 

 

Republicans have made excuse after excuse to avoid seriously considering, much less concluding, that Donald Trump should be impeached. Here are their greatest hits along with evidence that their complaints were made in bad faith.

An Open Letter To Congressman Tom Reed About Impeachment: Pt. 1-Impeach Trump To Be True To Yourself

Submitted by Robin Messing on Wed, 12/11/2019 - 4:55pm

This is the first part of a two part letter to Congressman Tom Reed explaining why he should impeach Donald Trump. It covers topics not included in the House's Articles of Impeachment but which should be considered when evaluating Donald Trump's fitness to continue holding office. I believe that these topics will be of particular interest to Congressman Reed given what he has stated in the past. The second part of this letter debunks many of the Republican objections to impeaching Trump for his attempt to coerce Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 election.

 

I am writing this letter to you to urge you to impeach Donald Trump. I know my demand for impeachment will not come as a surprise to you since I have contacted you or your office before and asked you to support impeachment. I also know that you are unlikely to put much weight in my opinion because I am a liberal and oppose both Trump and his agenda. That is fine. Do not impeach Trump because of me. Impeach Donald Trump because of YOU. Impeach Donald Trump because much of what he has done is offensive to YOUR agenda. IF YOU FAIL TO IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP YOU WILL BE TURNING YOUR BACK ON WHAT YOU STAND FOR.

Our intelligence community was shocked when Donald Trump tweeted out a photograph of a surveillance image of an Iranian missile that had blown up on its launch pad.

 

 

Cory Booker vs Donald Trump Is Like Unity vs Scum

Submitted by Robin Messing on Thu, 10/24/2019 - 7:07pm

Here is a little exercise for you. Compare and contrast how Cory Booker responded to a “gotcha” question by a Breitbart reporter with what Trump said in a tweet and what Trump’s press secretary said in an interview. You can find a video of Booker's response here.  Booker was brilliant. Trump—well, I may be a little biased about Trump, so you be the judge of how he did. First the Booker video.

 

 

Trump's Ukraine Treason Should No Longer Be the First Article of Impeachment: Iran and Hezbollah Have Told Us Why

Submitted by Robin Messing on Thu, 10/10/2019 - 6:05am

Trump’s giving the green light to Turkey to massacre our allies the Kurds is both evil and hurts our national security. ISIS may rise again because of this, and who will be our allies on the ground to help us beat them back? No one, because no one will trust us to have their back in the future. Retired Four-Star General and head of CentCom, Joseph Votel, and terrorism expert Elizabeth Dent wrote this about the danger of abandoning our partners, the Syrian Democratic Forces. consisting mainly of the Kurds.

 

Over four years, the SDF freed tens of thousands of square miles and millions of people from the grip of ISIS. Throughout the fight, it sustained nearly 11,000 casualties. By comparison, six U.S. service members, as well as two civilians, have been killed in the anti-ISIS campaign. Key to this effective relationship was mutual trust, constant communication, and clear expectations. The partnership was not without its difficulties. That included working through the December 2018 announcement of our sudden departure and our subsequent agreement with Turkey to pursue a security mechanism for the border areas. But each time, the strong mutual trust built on the ground between our military members and the SDF preserved our momentum. The sudden policy change this week breaks that trust at the most crucial juncture and leaves our partners with very limited options. . . .
