"One former CIA head even put out a tweet effectively saying that Trump should be executed for treason."

The C.I.A have form, when it comes to this.


The C.I.A needs to be JFK'd.

The Harlem Globetrotters play the Washington Generals every game. and every game the Washington Generals lose. and after every game they all share the same locker room. and the crowd still cheers.

Hummingbird Grapefruit missed three center shots (hail Mary's)in a row at the end of their last defeat. Yeah there's always a chance. Trump was a win against all odds in 2016 as per the msm, wasn't he?

It’s called “eternal defense.” They’ve done nothing since the 19th century.

Its like being the only reasonable person at the Salem witch trials.

or the only one not going along with chicken little's bull shit.

Trump could probably actually call up the militia and shoot them all and we probably wouldn't believe a word of it even if we saw the video.

NovaLegion 38 points ago +39 / -1

idk bro I've seen women on reddit and I think the salem witch trials were probably not wrong

Viewer01 11 points ago +11 / -0

Who knows, maybe the original trials were just doing away with actual bitches, and historians through the years thought the claims of mind control and other sorcery was misinterpreted as witches.

It was gas lighting from the medical industry. Herbalist's actually cured people stopping them from paying to have themselves be tortured in progressive medicine.

minotaurbeach 8 points ago +8 / -0

It was a group of young [12-16years old?]girls that collectively made accusations and got people killed.

The first victim was a 40 year old widow, that won her case, but the girls fell down in court, saying she was using powers to choke them, and she was hanged as a witch.

They accused adults in the village they did not like.

A few men were killed too-Before it was stopped, the girls were separated and questioned- and they found that their stories did not match up.

THERMONUCLEARMAGA 5 points ago +5 / -0

Just like Juicy's "lynching." The "victim's" are megalomaniac's high off the current crisis. The fake crisis was witch attacks. The reason the hegemony wanted "witch's" hunted was because herbalist's provided actual medicine and it was a convenient way to not only scare people from them, but actually murder their competition for them.

NvJohansson 4 points ago +4 / -0

There was also a huge perversity factor involved in it. The witch Hunters got off seeing the naked in court to prove they were witches and seeing them tortured naked

The thing is even if Trump was selling nuclear information on the side, he's the friggin President, he can do what he wants.

BasicKekinomics 23 points ago +24 / -1

Wood's core argument against Trump is that a president's plenary power does not extend to nuclear secrets. The reason, Wood says, is that the Atomic Energy Acts of 1946 and 1954 produced a super-category of classification involving anything nuclear, one that overrides even the president. That's untrue.

Congress cannot override the president's plenary power. Presidents can voluntarily respect a national security law, but they do not have to abide by it. Again, plenary power means, as Wikipedia summarizes, "a power that has been granted to a body or person in absolute terms, with no review of or limitations upon the exercise of that power."

Wood cites Navy v. Egan, 484 U.S. 518 (1988) to argue that nuclear secrets override the president's power. He contends that "[t]he 1988 Supreme Court case Navy v. Egan confirmed that classification authority flows from the president except in specific instances separated from his powers by law." Wrong again.

The Egan decision examines only whether a civil service board can review a "laborer's" being denied national security clearance. In that context, the Supreme Court was clear about the president's plenary power, unimpeded by congressional acts:

The President, after all, is the "Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States." U.S.Const., Art. II, § 2. His authority to classify and control access to information bearing on national security and to determine whether an individual is sufficiently trustworthy to occupy a position in the Executive Branch that will give that person access to such information flows primarily from this constitutional investment of power in the President, and exists quite apart from any explicit congressional grant. See Cafeteria Workers v. McElroy, 367 U. S. 886, 367 U. S. 890 (1961).

In sum, the only proof you need that Trump declassified the documents is the fact that, when he was still president, Trump treated them as declassified. Biden cannot criminalize Trump's actions by later re-classifying the documents (and there's no evidence that he did). And of course, if there were nuclear codes, they are changed regularly and would certainly be changed from one administration to the next, meaning that any information Trump has is as useful as the cartoon in an old Bazooka bubble gum wrapper.

It’s really simple.

In the Constitution, the executive power is vested exclusively in the President. Congress can try to pass whatever legislation that they want, but legislation doesn’t override the Constitution. Congress simply can’t take executive power away from the President.

I actually don't agree, honestly with most of the nuclear if a country really wants to get it they can just put the resources in it. Trump did a smart business move here, likely getting us cheap gas and making some money in the process.

People need to stop making legal arguments. The law no longer applies in this third world shithole.

Remove-All-Communist 2 points ago +2 / -0

Absolutely. So why the fuck are all Conservatives following the laws when the Leftist cucks are not? It's because we will beat them legally and we will put them all in prison legally and we will hang the traitors, legally. We do what's right and it will pay off in the end. If for some reason, that doesn't work and we gotta get nasty and get things done, God will have our backs and we will defeat this evil. YES, THESE LEFTISTS ARE STRAIGHT UP EVIL. The Lord is on our side and we have the higher ground.

Vox_Dobad 1 point ago +1 / -0

I get where you're coming from, but I think it's important to cover the legitimate bases too. It's not unlike the importance of voting, even though we know the system is largely rigged.

BerkeleyKM 10 points ago +11 / -1

I’m indifferent to any analysis about Trump. He’s the rightful president and he needs to replace the foreign usurper Xiden. The means of him repositioning himself is up to them. Hopefully they will not resist a peaceful impeachment of the White House steward and eventual reelection of Trump. This new sham appears they will not agree to peaceful terms.

Dirk_Nager 9 points ago +9 / -0

God bless you folks you still have the energy to refute all of the nonsense

XDingoX83 9 points ago +9 / -0

I said this a few days ago. Anyone in this world of classified information knows all the rules regarding classification comes from the president therefore they can never be in violation of it. When you read into programs you have to read the executive order that creates these classification systems. People are fucking retarded.

No Trump didnt pay a foreign agent to interfere in an election. No the FBI under Trump didnt use a GOP funded and foreign agent created dossier to justify spying of the presidential campaign of the Democrat Party. The DNC did that.

Real reason for the timing of the raid:

Aug 2 (Reuters) - Republican voters on Tuesday chose a raft of candidates supporting Donald Trump's 2020 election 'falsehoods' in multiple party primaries for the November general election - a stark display of the former president's grip on his party.

I took a peek at Twitter via Fritter, and Dems are insane. They really think the real president is gonna face some sort of punishment. Between this and CDC vanquishing their mask mandates, keep an eye on the suicides this month, especially since Dems think the new suicide hotline is useless lol

sweeswee14 11 points ago +11 / -0

Rachel Maddow actually cried, literally shed tears, when mueller said there was no collusion with trump and russia. Think about that in the starkest terms. Why would you cry when you find out your President DIDN'T collude with a foreign nation? That is how clownworld works. Everything is backwards.

I know that there are many folks that are guilty of sedition.

Past and current members of our government, and government adjacent folks (Democrat and Republican party officials).

Also a shitload of "journalists".

Big Media and internet site executives.

Many lobbyists as well.

I hope their crimes eventually catch up to them all.
