After the last week there are some points I would like to make.
We have seen where the house and senate are run by 4 people. Pelosi, Schumer, Mcconell, and Schiff.
This last impeachment showed us that the parties are no longer interested in following their oath. They voted to bypass the constitution and the plain wording it proffers. In their anger, In the first vote, they decided that the constitution did not matter. they voted that a bill of attainer could be used against a private citizen. That when the constitutional argument they were using was meant solely to take an official out of the office after a serious legal issue, they disregarded the meaning of it. they disregarded the same argument that all the courts have been using to throw out any election challenge, that of Laches. y6u see, the only remedy offered under the constitutional law they used was eviction from office, THEN the optional remedy of no longer being able to hold office again.
Article 1 section 3
Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.
The way it is written, you must satisfy the first before you can do the second. . since President Trump had already left office there was no way to satisfy the first, namely removal from office.
Article 1 secton 9
No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.
BILL OF ATTAINDER, legislation, punishment. An act of the legislature by which one or more persons are declared to be attainted, and their property confiscated.
2. The Constitution of the United States declares that no state shall pass any bill of attainder.
3. During the revolutionary war, bills of attainder, and ox post facto acts of confiscation, were passed to a wide extent. The evils resulting from them, in times of more cool reflection, were discovered to have far outweighed any imagined good. Story on Const. Sec. 1367. Vide Attainder; Bill of Pains and Penalties.
Since President Trump was a civilian at the time of his trial, any finding by the senate would constitute a bill of attainer.
Next point. This trial was not run by evidence, as much as fear and hate. The prosecutions case relied on the members remembering the recent fear they experienced in the overtaking of the capitol building. they made sure to play hours of video showing the break-in and over taking of the building. they presented almost no evidence for what they charged. the prosecution presented a lot of hearsay, news reports, and doctored evidence. they changed the charges mid stream from the events of the day, to include everything from the day Trump came down the elevator. They even added charges in the middle of the trial, saying they were implied. However in any court case you can not charge someone with an implied charge, it must be written out.
Then we come down to the verdict, which clearly was known even before the trial. The members of the senate were told how to vote by their leadership. The democrats were not allowed to challenge the constitutionality of the charges. All they were allowed is orange man bad.
I do not know what President Trump did to make them so mad and hate him like they do. However there seems to be nothing but hate from the left. It has to be more than he beat her in the 2016 run. As there was nothing but hate from before he even got off the stairs.
I am pretty sure we are in the midst of a giant cancel culture thing on this election. We are being told that what we saw is not what we saw. There have been hearings, sworn statements, and even video’s that questioned the election. yet we are told there was nothing. We have a full county of commisioners that are getting away with disregarding the states attempts at verifying the election. And yes, I do understand that our election can influence the world. As the voting system that is being challenged is used world wide, and if proven to “shift” votes instead of simply counting them, it could topple some governments(???Burma???).
At this point, all I am sure of is this is a mess. Our government has forsaken its bible of the constitution. And we have 2-4 people running the country, instead of 457. That the judicial is as corrupt as the legislative, and our executive is a farce. I wish it otherwise. the point we are at??? We maybe at the end or in the very least ripe for takeover by a foreign country. We need to get it right.
