Everything Trump Touches – CRASHES!

The big announcement was coming! In mid-December, Trump did announce an online store depicting himself as a superhero on his $99 trading cards. Just prior to this announcement on TV, anyone who followed him on his personal social network called the Truth Social website was made aware of something huge coming, and he was going to announce what it was the very next day. Then, it turned out to be nothing more than his announcement of his new NFT trading cards, depicting him as a superhero, or an old west sheriff or an astronaut. Trump designed these cards to be of limited edition, were announced being available for purchase just before Christmas.
Many people fell for his new swindle, as I call it. Whether this NFT scheme was legit or not, just like everything else that Donald touches, crashes. The value of the trading cards initially went up sharply to approximately $125 per card shortly after Trump announced them, with initial sales at $99. But now, just one month later, the value of the cards had now dropped 98%. The cards can now be purchased for around $99 each, but they are hard to find. The idea would have worked if many of these cards were sold. Only a few purchasers made large transactions of these cards, which initially brought up the value of them, and now these purchases may not be worth the card stock they are printed on.
What was the purpose of Donald Trump creating these trading cards in the first place? First, you must believe that he was trying to pump up his own ego. In the video that he made for the announcement, he mentioned how great he was, in a sense “better than Lincoln, better than Washington.” This is what he also proclaimed about himself in the public announcement of these NFT trading cards.
The actual announcement that Trump should be making is that he will drop out of the presidential race, in which he is the only candidate to date that explicitly stated he will be running.
Much to the dismay of the Republican Party, he declared his presidency over a month ago, yet to campaign, have any rallies or speeches. He did this to throw off the Attorney General from the path to continue in the process of his own prosecution. But instead, Attorney General Garland announces that a new prosecuting attorney is now in charge of ‘everything Trump ‘and will be taking over the investigation of himself. Unfortunately for Trump, this new prosecuting attorney will now speed up the investigation into Trump, so Trumps announcement to be a candidate was futile. Now Trump knows he will be crashing once again, against his will of course, to drop out of the presidential race, eventually, but not until he loses more millions of dollars, just like his recently made public tax returns shows.
In all sincerity, most Republicans are hoping Trump will drop out of the race before Ron DeSantis – governor of Florida, announces his candidacy for president. If Trump were as smart as he says he is, he would realize that Ron DeSantis will be the choice of the Republicans to run against Joe Biden in 2023 and 2024 and drop out just like anyone else would if they were known to be less popular than a formidable opponent. But, as always, Trump is too stupid to act on the things he needs to act on (like drop out of the race for president), and acts on the things that he should not, (NFT trading cards). He has people around him that constantly give him bad advice. In a sense, I feel sorry for the man, but then when I think about all the things that he got away with in the past 6 years, I’m rooting for his demise. Most other people in the country feel the same, except for his hard-nosed followers, people like the ones that gave Trump money on his NFT trading card scheme. Every time I think of the people that Trump poisoned with his lies, I think of my nephew. But, to give my nephew credit, he is a smart man, but he still has his blinders on, believing all that Donald Trump puts out. Who’s to say that my nephew is or is not one of the Trump supporters that purchased the doomed NFT cards by Trump.

 

Merrick Garland concerning Hunter Biden

Right from the top, why didn’t Merrick Garland appoint a special counsel for the investigation and possible prosecution of Hunter Biden? The answer is simple. The Hunter case is being presently investigated by a Delaware attorney named David Weiss, who is a Republican appointee of Bill Barr. He is still in office and continuing with investigation whether Hunter Biden committed tax fraud or not. Merrick Garland could have stepped in and taken out the Republican attorney and put in a special counsel in the Hunter Biden case, but he instead has decided to let the Delaware attorney continue with the case.  But Merrick Garland put in a special counsel to investigate Donald Trump because of two reasons. First, Trump has announced his candidacy and Joe Biden plans to run for re-election. President Joe Biden is Merrick Garland’s boss, and he felt that he had to recuse himself and take politics out of the game. Garland now has a prosecuting attorney named Jack Smith who is on record of prosecuting both Democrats and Republicans.

Merrick Garland has an extremely large load of cases because of January 6. He has prosecuted many, and more prosecutions to come. Within the last day, a jury in federal court in Washington convicted Stewart Rhodes, the leader of the far-right militia, and one of his subordinates for a plot to keep Donald Trump in power. David Weiss continues on the case. 

Trump Admits to Crimes

Donald J. Trump doesn’t know when to shut up.

It is believable to me that he would hand prosecuting attorney Jack Smith very incriminating evidence that can be used against him because the ONLY reason for doing so would be that Donald J. Trump is a very stupid fool. That is exactly what Trump did on his social media platform called ‘Truth Social’.  Donald J. Trump continues to incriminate himself and as I just mentioned, he doesn’t know when to shut up.  He publicly admits to crimes.

What I just said in the first five sentences of this post is actually accurate, because the following is a statement made on his social platform…  The statement is aimed as Jack Smith.

“…When will you invade Bill and Hillary’s home in search of the 33,000 emails she deleted AFTER receiving a subpoena from the U.S. Congress? When will you invade the other Presidents’ homes in search of documents, which are voluminous, which they took with them, but not nearly so openly and transparently as I did? “

Trump Backed Republican Candidates that Lost the Mid-Term General Election

Many Republicans are now having a second thought about supporting Trump in the upcoming presidential election in 2024. Do not look any further than the midterm elections in 2022 to get an answer as to why Republicans are now seeking a second choice as their nominee for president. But right now, the Republicans only have Trump, as he is the only person to make the announcement of running for President in 2024.

Like Trump, the Republican party which is now the ‘Trump party’, not the party it used to be before Trump, is just as bad as Trump. They supported him for 6 years, but many of the Republicans that believed in true Republican principals either left the party long time ago or switched over to the Democratic Party.  Where are they going? In one such case still to be determined, Liz Chaney, one of the two Republicans on the House Committee looking into the January 6 Insurrection, claimed publicly that she will leave the Republican Party if Donald Trump becomes the Republican candidate for the presidential election.

Liz Cheney lost her House seat because she wasn’t an election denier and openly despaired Trump. The Republicans in her state elected someone else to take her place in the chamber. Trump thought it was now his opportunity to now endorse midterm candidates, mostly election deniers that spread the ‘BIG LIE’. But what Trump didn’t see coming is that many of these ‘election deniers’ lost their elections.

The following is a list of candidates that lost their bids for a seat in Congress.

SENATE CANDIDATES (Endorsed by Trump) WHO LOST

  1. Mehmet Oz was defeated in Pennsylvania by John Fetterman.
  2. Don Bolduc was (R) defeated in New Hampshire by Senator Maggie Hassan (D).
  3. Leora Levy (R) was defeated in Connecticut by Richard Blumenthal (D).
  4. Gerald Mallow (R) was defeated in Vermont by Peter Welch (D).

HOUSE CANDIDATES (Endorsed by Trump) WHO LOST

  1. Bo Hines (R) was defeated in North Carolina’s District 13 by Wiley Nickel (D).
  2. Steve Chabot (R) was defeated in Ohio’s District 1 by Greg Landsman (D).
  3. Madison Gilbert (R) was defeated in Ohio’s District 13 by Emilia Sykes (D).
  4. John Gibbs (R) was defeated in Michigan District 3 by Hillary Scholten (D).
  5. Yesli Vega (R) was defeated in Virginia’s District 7 by Abigail Spanberger (D).
  6. Karoline Leavitt (D) was defeated in New Hampshire’s District 1 by Rep. Chris Pappas (D).
  7. J.R. Majewski (D) was defeated in Ohio’s District 9 by Marcy Kaptur (D).
  8. Sandy Smith (R) was defeated in North Carolina’s District 1 by Don Davis (D).
  9. Robert Burns (R)was defeated in New Hampshire’s District 2 by Ann McLane Kuster (D).
  10. Sarah Palin (R) was defeated in Alaska’s At-Large District 2 by Mary Pelota (D).
  11. Jim Bognet (R)was defeated in Pennsylvania’s District 8 by Matt Cartwright (D).

GOVERNORS CANDIDATES (Endorsed by Trump) WHO LOST

  1. Tudor Dixon (R) was defeated to incumbent Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) in Michigan.
  2. Josh Shapiro (D) in Pennsylvania defeated Doug Mastriano (R).
  3. Lee Zeldin (R) was defeated to Governor Kathy Houchul(D) in New York.
  4. Dan Cox was defeated (R) by Wes Moore (D) in Maryland.
  5. Maura Healey in Massachusetts (D) defeated Geoff Diehl (R).
  6. Governor Tony Evers (D) in Wisconsin defeated Tim Michels (R).
  7. Governor J.B. Pritzker (D) in Illinois defeated Darren Bailey (R).
  8. Scott Jensen (R) was defeated in Minnesota to Governor Tim Walz (D).
  9. Mark Ronchetti (R) was defeated in New Mexico by Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham (D).
  10. Derek Schmidt (R) was defeated in Kansas to Governor Laura Kelly (D).

STATE EXECUTIVES (Endorsed by Trump) WHO LOST

  1. Kim Crocket (R) was defeated in Minnesota in the Secretary of State election by Steve Simon (D).
  2. Kristina Karamo (R) was defeated in the Michigan Secretary of State election by Jocelyn Benson (D).
  3. Kari Lake (R) was defeated in the Arizona election by Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D). Kari Lake still refuses to concede, filing a lawsuit against Maricopa County election officials accusing them of violating elections laws. Of course, Trump is backing Kari Lake’s claim promoting claims that the ballot tabulator issued skewed results in Hobbs’ favor, accusing the Arizona election officials of running a “criminal voting operation”. Where can you find more about this election lie? Of course, you can find the information on ‘Truth Social’ which is owned and operated by Donald Trump, the #1 election denier of all time.

In a race still to be determined, but the pending outcome must be clear is, the runoff race between Congressman Rafael Warnock and Hershel Walker should be a slam dunk for the Democrats in the Senate.

The Republicans predicted that they would over-take the House by at least 60 seats, but because of the 26 poor candidates supported by Trump who advanced from the primary elections to the general election who failed to make good on their nominations, Trump is now facing a growing number of Republicans that do not believe he is the best candidate for President in 2024.

Also with major defeats in court, he faces a rapidly upcoming issue with the Mar-a-Largo documents case with criminal handling of government records, violation of the Espionage Act and the investigation of his potential of obstruction of justice charges on January 6, 2021.

It is no wonder with all the obvious defeats of civil lawsuits and court matters that Trump has much more to worry about concerning legal issues that can deplete his money or land him in jail.

When will the Republicans wake up to Trumps devious, malicious, and disgusting acts as president and now as a civilian to not support him? Obviously, with the list as presented above, the public didn’t support the candidates that he supported in the elections, and now it is time for the Republicans to turn up the heat on Trump and support another candidate for president. The good news here is that Trump may never again be the nominee for president for the Republicans.  Trump is running out of time deposing many of the lawsuits which is taking most of his attention now, instead of the concerns running for president.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trump’s 45 Posts on Thanksgiving

Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States, posted 45 posts on his social media pages (trumptruthsocial).  Was that number a coincidence? I think so, but what is so ridicules are that considerable number of posts. In not one of those posts, did Trump wish his readers Happy Thanksgiving. All he was interested in doing was to threaten his adversaries. Should that be a good trait of someone running again for president? It may have worked for him last time in 2020, but it will not help him in 2024. In fact, it’s going to hurt him. His attorneys must be livid because Trump just cannot keep his mouth shut.

Listen to the attached video by Ben Meiselas of the YouTube production called MeidasTouch and make your own conclusions.

Trump is Losing Tax Returns to the House

Before the 2020 election, Donald Trump claimed he would release his tax returns. But finally, after 6 years of trying to keep them hidden, Trump must produce.  This past Tuesday, the Supreme Court gave the order that clears the way for the House committee to obtain the returns. He’s the only president in known history that refused to turn over his tax returns. He got away from it, up until now. The reasons why he wanted to hide them must be because his tax records would reveal more crimes than he could be prosecuted for. But besides that, they may reveal that he’s not as rich as he says he is. But for the money he has made, he hasn’t paid his fair share of taxes or paid none. If you were to ask Donald Trump, he would say that he pays a lot. It’s already known that Trump did not pay Federal taxes in 2011. Trump received a large refund for 2010, $73 million, but then the very next year, he didn’t pay a dime. Ever since 2011, Trump received audits from the IRS and has been giving the excuse that he couldn’t release them because the IRS is auditing him. That is a lie. He could have produced his tax returns even while they were being audited. If you ask him if he’s still being audited, he will say yes, so his statement doesn’t hold water. He’s been ordered to hand them over.

Suddenly, Donald Trump doesn’t have control as he did as acting President of the United States. Hopefully, the public will eventually find out what he’s been hiding.

 

 

Donald Trump in REAL Trouble

Who would have guessed?

Trump dealings before and in his presidency and even up to today, must deal with multiple legal challenges coming his way. Now that the midterms are over and most of Trump backed candidates lost, Trump will be in the news. Now the Republicans are waking up, realizing that Trump doesn’t have magic powers and cannot be their leader in the party. Trump realizes it too, but he will lie to claim innocence, because as everyone knows by now, ‘Trump is NEVER wrong’. Really?//!*%$/

Let’s start with just today. It is thanksgiving-2022. Can Trump celebrate it today without a lawsuit coming his way? Absolutely not. Today on Thanksgiving, Donald Trump is being sued for adult sex abuse for battery and defamation by an ex-columnist, E. Jean Carroll in New York. The case goes back to 2019 when she sued Trump for defamation because he claimed he never did it. She was able to file the suit because as Trump speaks, he has this uncanny ability to lie. He does this day in and day out. For example, in his recent announcement of running for President in 2022, it was proven by fact-checkers that he lied twenty-two times during his announcement that he was now a candidate for President.  But back in 2019, Trump denied her sexual assault allegation, and he claimed at the time, before his presidency, that he never met with Carroll. He accused her of making false statements for a story she claimed true in her new book. But now, she added new statements to the suit for what Trump said later in October 2022, as he was providing a deposition of the 2019 lawsuit. In a story provided by CNN today, by reporter Kara Scannell, the previous lawsuit is being re-hashed as she is trying to bring Trump accountable for “battery for allegedly raping Carroll in the dressing room of a New York department store in the mid-1990’s. The lawsuit also alleges a new defamation claim based on statements Trump made last month.” says reporter Kara Scannell.

Just a few days ago, the Supreme Court voted against Donald Trump to allow access by the House of his taxes during his past business dealings. I bet Trump didn’t see that coming. It’s his Supreme Court. Three of the Supreme Court Judges were his picks during his four years in office. The entire Supreme Court voted against Trump. The clock is ticking, because as soon as the newly controlled Republican Party led House convenes in January, the House will kill the investigation on Trump’s taxes. At least that is what the very possible House Majority leader Kevin McCarthy will do. But then again, Kevin McCarty has his own issues, and may never get a chance to serve as majority leader. Because of the very slim Republican majority in the new House for 2023 thanks to Donald Trump backing very poor candidates for office, McCarthy may not get complete support by the House to become their leader. McCarthy is a “Trumper”, and people are now running away from Trump supported candidates. Even if he became Speaker, he could never control it, nor get anything accomplished except to go after Democrats. He will have the help of Congressmen Jim Jordan to do that. Now it will be ‘Hunter Biden’ all over again. As if the country wants to hear it. That is a story in itself.

In Georgia, the Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is investigating into attempts to subvert the 2020 election led by the one and only Donald Trump while he was still President, and her team is now preparing for a flurry of activity after the midterm elections. Trump announced early of his presidency run for office in the 2024 election, just to snub his thumb in everyone’s face who is investigating him. But his actions just will not work. He never admitted defeat in the 2020 election and thinks he is immune from prosecution. Slowly but surely, he may be finally waking up to reality. He is losing money every day from lawsuits that he continues to lose.  By the time that the courts get done with Trump after these upcoming cases, Trump may not have a dime to his name, but would not need money, because he may be wearing an orange jumpsuit.

In New York, State Attorney General Letitia James has accused Trump of systematically misstating the value of his properties. So, what did Trump do?  Trump overvalued his property worth to get large loans, but then claimed the land wasn’t worth as much so that he didn’t have to pay a lot of taxes. This is a textbook Fraud case. Letitia James wants to bar Donald Trump and all his family from ever doing business in the state of New York because of fraudulent business practices. He is also being sued to pay money to recover unpaid taxes, a value that would destroy his wealth and businesses.  How did Trump react to this lawsuit? In a move that no one understands, Trump’s attorneys filed a lawsuit in the state of Florida, attempting to block Letitia James’s own civil case in New York. But Letitia is always one step away from Trump. She moved the case to Florida’s federal courts, with the case falling before Judge Middlebrooks, who is a Clinton appointed attorney. This same judge just fined Trump’s lawyers in a different suit.

And then there is January 6th. Trump is accused of orchestrating the insurrection at the U.S. Capital in Washington, D.C. The January 6 House Committee has put forward damning evidence that Trump is responsible for the attack on the U.S. Capital, and the threats made against his own Vice-President for not helping him over through a valid election that just didn’t go his way. The present Attorney General Merrick Garland has now turned over further investigations that may lead to an indictment of Trump to a special counsel named prosecuting Attorney Jack Smith. Smith is a former chief of the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section and will oversee criminal matters related to former President Donald Trump. He is credited for prosecuting both Republicans and Democrats in the past.

It’s just not going well for Trump. His family is being investigated and members of his own family may face fines and prosecution. But his lawyers just received sanctions for bringing an “objectively frivolous” racketeering lawsuit against Hillary Clinton and thirty other left-leaning defendants. All of this is Trump’s stall tactic to avoid prosecution, but in the end, no one is above the law and Trump will pay. Every time his lawyers go to court, they lose because of Trump’s baseless allegations.

Also, Trump is losing his credibility from voters as most Trump backed candidates in the country lost their bid for elections. Many of them were 2020 election deniers. Because of Donald Trump, the Republicans lost the U.S. Senate, and it looks like after a Senate Runoff in Georgia between Republican candidate Herschel Walker and incumbent Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock, the U.S. Senate will be in solid Democratic control, as Warnock is expected to win re-election. The Republicans are blind. During Trump’s tenure as the 45th President of the United States, the party lost control of the Senate and House of Representatives. Then they lose the Presidency. Still, many Republicans are ‘forever Trumpers’ and will never go against Trump in fear that Trump may retaliate and vet against them, which may cause them to lose their seat. They are violating their oath when elected because they do not support the truth. They say what their constituents say, not the truth.

The Republican Party as it stands now is the “Trump Party”. What will it be when Trump is indicted or prosecuted.

Trump is in such hot water right now, how could anyone support him as their next President of the United States. I predict a large slate of Republicans running against Trump for the Republican nomination for next President. Can the party survive in this fashion with Trump in the mix? Most likely not, especially now that President Biden claims he will run again for a second term. Watch the video immediately below that confirms what is written above.

 

 

Maybe you would like to hear more truth about the goings-on with Donald Trump.  Make a comment on this story. If credible, it will be published. If not, it will be trashed and will not be published here. You can agree with it or not agree with it, but if you are commenting to advertise yourself or your own interests, it will go right in the trash.

 

Insurrection Planned and Executed by Donald J. Trump – January 6, 2021

This website – Trumpdecisionpoints.com exists because of a corrupt president. Never before in history have we had such a man, who during his first term in office, committed such an egregious violation of his presidency. Already with two impeachments behind him, now the insurrection of the U.S. Capital that Trump himself had orchestrated.  During his entire 1st term and ONLY term in office, the Republican party, now known to have become the Trump party, supported him and still do to this day. Trump continues to take donations of money from his supporters whom he convinced that he won the election. People blindly give him money, and he’s using the money to line his pockets in an attempt to fight off the myriad of lawsuits coming his way.

Now that the first wave of Congressional hearing have now ended, details of what happened in Trumps orbit, before, during and after the riots of January 6, 2021 have been revealed in front of the entire world, beginning and ending on Prime-time TV.

Trumps inner circle have now been peeled away from him, except from the liking of Steve Bannon and other co-conspirators of January 6th. Bannon who went to court and lost his bid to stay out of jail because he has been found guilty in two counts of contempt of Congress. He failed to reply to subpoenas of the January 6th committee. He, like others in the Republican party, feel that they are above the law as he claims Executive privilege, because the ex-President Donald Trump claimed that he didn’t need to testify. But actually, Bannon had to testify, because Trump is no longer the acting president.

Bannon faces up to 1 year in jail for the conviction with each count. When eventually sentenced, he may have to serve the minimum of 1 month for each count, either in concurrent or consecutive fashion. He has been the one of the many evils of our democracy. Other members of Congress still have to respond to their subpoenas, such as Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama, Jim Jordan of Ohio, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, and Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania.

Others in the Trumps White House, including Administration Officials contain Jeffrey Clark who was the former acting civil division assistant attorney general, Judd Deere, Deputy White House press secretary, Cassidy Hutchinson, special assistant to the president for legislative affairs and secretary of Mark Meadows – Chief of Staff who did provide thousands of documents to the committee and others, but then decided not to participate with a January 6th committee subpoena and others who have and not testified, include the following, some who have testified…

Companies that were subpoenaed as part of the Jan 6 investigation

Alphabet – Parent company of Facebook – users relayed communications about the Jan. 6 attack

Salesforce.com

Twitter – Platform where users relayed communications about the Jan. 6 attack

 

So many of these people listed above did come before the committee, unlike Steve Bannon that will now pay by serving time in jail.

All the evidence presented at the January 6 hearings point to Donald Trump as he orchestrated the January 6 attack. Pending charges of president Trump may be pending by the Department of Justice.

It has also been revealed that the January 6 committee will hold more hearings in about a month.

When the committee formally concludes that its investigation has ended and a final report of their findings has been released, they will then have 30 days to disband the committee. By then, mid-term elections may have taken place and some of the January 6 committee panel may have to testify to a Republican lead House if the Republicans take control. Corruption within the Republican party will then continue.

It is a never-ending fight for democracy. The history books nevertheless will reveal the facts in detail, not regarding to which party may be in charge of the government in the future. The world continues to look on to see if this idea of an ‘American Democracy’ will hold. If Donald Trump became president once again, the country most likely would fail to survive as a democracy. Never before in American history, can it be found that such a corrupt president was part of a plan to overrun democracy as it stands today.

But Donald Trump will not be around forever, but the Republican party, the Conservative party, will have been forever stained by what is considered the poorest example of a U.S. President in U.S. history.

This blog will continue to list the prior and upcoming decisions of president Donald J. Trump.

The Present Status of Donald Trump

So what’s the status of Donald J. Trump after his presidency? He survived a second impeachment trail, but he now faces legal threats in Georgia and New York. As if the allegations were not enough for Trump prior to Joe Biden’s election as the 46th President. In the state of New York, Trump made every effort to overturn the state’s election results in his favor, and when he failed to do so, he had his supporters storm the U.S. Capital on January 6, 2021. What’s uncanning about this, he is still trying to overturn the results, as if there were any chance of pushing President Joe Biden out of office.  That’s not too smart considering the legal actions he is facing. Joe Biden has been serving as the 46th President of the United States for 5 months now. Trump continues to stir up his base of supporters, and undermine election results,  but his supporters continue to blindly follow him. They continue to donate money to him, and he pockets the money, most likely to pay legal bills. During the course of his presidency, he has alienated so many people and has successfully isolated the Democratic and Republican parties so that now they agree on nothing. The Republican party as we knew it is no more. It is now the Trump party.

After Trump left office, he continues to have a strangle-hold on a party that once truly believed in conservatism. Yet, it looks as if he is taking a serious look of running for the White House again. If he was successful in becoming our 47th president, that would make him almost 80 years old when he’s elected again. Really? It was one thing putting up with this man as a president in his early 70’s, but now the people are expected to have better days ahead of President Biden as Trump will be nearly 80 years of age? But the Republican party has shown no momentum for another candidate. They honestly feel, at least today that if Trump were to run again, that they would support him. Honestly, Joe Biden hopes that he will run. His opponent may be President Biden, but I’m looking for Vice-President Kamala Harris to run instead. She will beat Trump hands down, even if the Republican state houses are changing rules so that many people of color may not be able to vote in the next election. The Republicans know that the only way to victory in the next election is to cheat, and that they will try to do in every way to insure that Republicans take control of the peoples house in the next election. But, I believe that the American people had enough of Trump. The despise his actions and policies on immigration and foreign affairs. They despise his solid support for the rich and his unwavering support for guns and the NRA. It makes no difference what the people want in his house. He would only do what he wants.

Because of the actions of himself and his supporters, there are now several new investigations that most likely will threaten his finances and his freedom. His long time personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani is now facing possible prosecution as his home has been raided for evidence of corruption and to find evidence of collusion with other countries along with Trump.  There are several criminal investigations, two defamation lawsuits accusing him of sexual assault, along with civil state inquiries. Donald Trump may be broke by the next presidential election, or may be behind bars. He will be known in history as the most corrupt president ever.  He will be remembered for the one person in history that truly was not qualified to be the President of the United States and history will haunt him and his family.

Extent of Abuses of Power in the Trump Presidency

The fact is that Donald Trump’s tenure as President is over, but the reverberation that will be felt for years to come will be something that cannot be ignored. Trump is about to experience an impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate, but this time the outcome may be allot different than the first trial, which actually was not a trial at all. The Republican led Senate under the direction of Mitch McConnell refused to hold hold the trial with witnesses during Trump’s first impeachment hearing and Trump was acquitted.

But what has Donald Trump done to be impeached yet a second time by the House of Representatives,  was with the most bipartisan vote in U.S. history. To preface my statements, I must say that Trump seemed to be his own worst enemy, and it didn’t seem that he cared if he was following the law or not. Trump would never accept the fact that the “fake media” as he called it, along with everyone including FOX NEWS, NEWSMAX and other outlets blamed the media for reporting lies, when in actuality, Mr. Trump attempted to do so and violated his own claim of fraud in the election. I’m not here writing this article to try to list fraud in the election, as Trump tried more than just a few dozen times in court to prove it, but lost approximately 50 lawsuits of voter fraud in U.S. Courts by bipartisan members of the Supreme court. I would have to write a book to explain all of the missteps of this president. At the end when he ran out of options, he tasked Vice President Pence to not certify the election on January 6th, in which the Vice-President had no authority to do, and when Trump realized that even that was about to fail, he decided to get his supporters involved who attacked the U.S. State Capital while it was in joint-session to certify the election. They stormed the building, took control of it, ransacking the Senate and House Chambers while putting the Vice-President and The U.S. House of Representatives leader, Nancy Pelosi in danger along with AOC and others; it was proven that Donald Trump’s supporters came extremely close from harming them and others in both chambers in the U.S. State Capital building.

I have been criticized as others who want to write the truth, projecting that Donald Trump actually abused his office, his power. He failed the American people, not because he lost the election fairly and failed to admit it EVER, but during his tenure in the first and only term he served as president, he manifested several abuses of power in which most any other person, Democratic or Republican would most likely be booted out of office if they committed the same infractions as Donald Trump.

In an article on CNN Politics, the analysis of Marshall Cohen, the author of the article, highlighted Trump’s 10 worst abuses of power during his presidency updated on January 24th. The accusations in EVERY case can be proven, even though Trump supporters continue to wear their blinders and not accept the facts.

This blog’s purpose is not to criminalize Donald Trump, as he is doing that himself, in the open, in front of the whole world to see. Now that he is gone, people now see what Trump was all about.  Now that his tools of not being able to speak freely on Twitter, and other social media outlets have been eliminated or diminished, so is some of his Republican base, affecting his ability to further promote his baseless ideas about the election. I wished that I had a good story to report about Donald Trump and his presidency. If he would have acted like one president that was for all of the people instead of none of the people, except for himself, then I would have reported those good things about him. After a short period of time I realized that I would not be able to write anything here on this blog that would support the president, as the blogs purpose is to publish Trump’s decision points, and it was evident to me that there were so many bad decision to be made by this president. So, I asked my nephew, who supported Trump if he would write articles supporting the president on this blog, and he did write a few articles. The difference in opinion grew into a large bet, which I finally put an end to because as were the followers of Donald Trump, my nephew also had blinders on and only wanted me and the readers of this blog to understand why Trump was going to win the election. If I would have kept with the bet, I would have won a substantial sum of money, but instead I elected to not even attempt to put the burden on my nephew. I’m sure he is very glad that I did step down from the bet after seeing the results. Although I admit that an unusual number of people did support Trump in the election, but several million more people voted for Biden, so the results were clear. The results could have been different, if Trump would have done a better job on the Pandemic. The voting people would have responded in like when Mr George W. Bush won his second term after the 911 bombings in NYC, at the beginning of his first term. Mr. Bush brought the country together, doing the opposite of what Donald Trump did when he was faced with the pandemic.

The following are the 10 worst abuses of power as reported by CNN Politics.

There was nothing normal of his presidency and how he tried to govern as a lawmaker in the legislative branch instead of the Executive branch as President. Every day, there was something coming out about Trump or what he did to incite divisivment in the political arena. As long as Donald J. Trump, president, could steal the headlines, he became successful because of the enablers by outlets such as Twitter and Facebook, Fox News and Newsmax which allowed him to continuously spread lies. Again, this is my opinion, and not the opinion of many other people that support the actions of media and social outlets, that support Donald Trump.

Here is the list of abuses of power, as stated in the CNN article totally committed by Donald J. Trump, the president of the United States.

First, he subverted the election. But it wasn’t what he did during and after the outcome when he was pronounced the looser, “false disinformation about the voting process”. He even floated the idea of unconstitutionally delaying the election, “leading to a bipartisan rebuke.”, as written by Marshall Cohen of CNN. For this abusive act, Trump has now been impeached a second time, the first ever in American history, as no other president in history every was impeached twice. It was for his subversion of the election, that lead to the riot at the U.S. Capital in Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021. Leading up to that “he falsely claimed victory and pressured election officials in battleground states to fraudulently throw out millions of votes for President Joe Biden,” again stated by the CNN article. Trump tried to bribe the Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, in Trump’s hour-long call, again reported by CNN. You don’t have to take my word for it or CNN’s word for it, but you can actually hear Donald Trump’s actual audio call by Trump to the Secretary of State, which openly proves his guilt of trying to subvert the election. The full recording was also published by YouTube, who provided the entire conversation between Donald Trump and the Georgia Secretary of State.  But this wasn’t the main reason why he was impeached a second time.

That information will be outlined now, as the second abuse of power, the reason for his second impeachment is that he incited the insurrection  at the U .S. Capitol. This incitement is the basis of the sole article stated in the impeachment lawsuit. On January 6, 2021, in his attempt to cling to power since nothing else seemed to work, he ran out of time. The joint session of Congress was about to certify the election which is the absolute final act before an inauguration. He incited his followers in a rally not far from the U.S. Capital just before the certification vote, and encouraged them to go down to the U.S. Capital and stop the proceedings and bring justice because he couldn’t do it himself, because even his own Vice-President wasn’t going to do it. Donald Trump has never admitted fault, nor has he admitted encouraging his followers from doing what they did at the U.S. Capital, but instead take opportunities to express his innocence and to condemn his own followers. His own followers expected to get a presidential pardon from Trump for their actions at the U.S. Capitol and some actually came out and asked for one, but instead, Trump abandoned them and did not provide any pardons for them. Again, Donald Trump was looking out for himself, as he didn’t want to incriminate himself in any way for promoting such an evil act. He condemned his own followers in a speech in an attempt to save himself.

Third, he took for granted his powers as President. He abused the bully pulpit. Even that he continued throughout his presidency, it was never proven to be criminal and not impeachable, at least not with a Republican majority sitting in the U.S. Senate who would not convict during the first impeachment. In the CNN article, and known by everyone who followed news about Trump, they were getting a daily dose of his continued and repeated lies about everything. He made racist claims and drove people away from each other instead of trying to bring together people who disagreed with each other. He continuously fanned the flames until he could do no more. He did it because he had the power to do it, and no one was putting him on the blog when he did so. Why, because the own Republican Senate refused to keep him in check, and gave him absolute authority to do whatever he wanted when they failed to convict him during the first impeachment.

A normal president would have condemned white supremacists during the 2017 Charlottesville rally, and also praised QAnon in 2020. But Trump would not. A normal president would have never associated himself to the dictators of Kim Jon Un and Vladimir Putin. But Trump did. He sided with them, and there wasn’t a thing anyone could make him account to, again because the Republican Senate was afraid of him an what he could do to them if they disagreed with him. To this day, even after they were attacked under the leadership of Donald Trump at the U.S. State Capital, many Senators in the House and Senate still support Trump.

At the end of his tenure as president, Trump pardoned killers convicted in court, pardoned people within his Cabinet that were convicted, and pardoned many of his friends that never turned against him. Of course, he would not pardon the likes of Michael Cohen, who for years and years supported every move by Trump even before Trump became president because Cohen revolted against him and wrote that very incriminating book against Trump, only to find himself being convicted in some of the same crimes that Donald Trump my be proven guilty of in the near future. Donald Trump’s future looks grim, as he has lost tons of money, tons of support and facing lawsuit after lawsuit now as a citizen of the United States. Soon he may soon be convicted in the U.S. Senate, and if so, will loose any chance to run for president of the United States in the future, something that he has mentioned he would like to do. At the end, it’s all driven by money, and Trump will see that he will have more to lose than win if he runs again.

Fourth, Trump continued to violate norms when he Politicized the Justice Department. He would not stay away from federal law enforcement. “It is extremely important for the integrity of American democracy that the president cannot manipulate law enforcement for partisan, political, self-interested preferences,” said Rick Pildes, a former CNN legal analyst.  Trump tried to have the Justice Department “investigate more than two dozen of his perceived appointments.” According the CNN report, Trump wanted the DOJ to also look into Biden’s son Hunter Biden and Google. Also, instead of staying out of official business of the DOJ, he decided to fire then FBI Director James Comey in 2017. In hindsight, Trump most likely would have not fired Comey if he knew that he was about to be investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election.” Trump undermined the department by constantly getting in the way. No other president in history has attempted to do so in such a blatant fashion, in public view, for the whole world to see.

This brings me to the fifth abuse of power as Trump obstructed the Mueller investigation.  Trump was plagued for three years in his first term with investigation going on by Robert Mueller. Trump claimed that the investigation was illegitimate. He tried to obstruct the criminal probe. Mueller investigated 10 episodes and found persuasive evidence that Trump’s actions fit the legal criteria to warrant criminal charges, but he never charged him. Instead he just handed over the report that took 3 years to create and let the Republican controlled Senate decide on what to do with it during the 1st impeachment trial, because Mueller believed that he had no right to convict a U.S. sitting president. At the same time, Mueller would not clear his name. He would never say that Trump was innocent of “obstruction of justice and political corruption”, stated by Paulsen, the conservative legal scholar.

It is my opinion that Trump broke the law while being president, but with the office that he held, no one including Mueller would ever even attempt to convict him or charge him directly with crimes.

The 6th abuse as stated in the CNN article is for abusing the pardon power. Because there are no limits on what the president can do regarding crimes, Trump took his office to heart and pardoned several people as most do, but the difference was that some of whom pardoned by Trump were not deserving of a pardon. That’s my opinion, but you would think that anyone that has been convicted of murder would never receive a pardon from the U.S. president, as it is up to the courts to convict because of facts. But the facts do not matter with Donald Trump. The only thing that matters is that he benefits on everything he does. Public opinion was split between the Democrats and Republicans, and Donald Trump never benefited from any popularity poll over 50%. On the last day of his presidency, his polls reached an all-time low of just a 38.6 % approval rating. I might add that it dropped several points since the riots occurred on January 6th. Most modern presidents hardly survive making it over 50% at the end of their first term. Ironically, Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon had exceptional poll numbers at the beginning of their second terms and both left office with high numbers. Actually, the last 9 presidents besides Trump had numbers better than Trumps, other that Gerald Ford who never broke a 50% likeability with the American people.

The 7th abuse would be the Ukraine affair and cover-up. Donald Trump pressured the Ukrainian government “to help his reelection campaign by announcing a baseless investigation into the Biden’s “according to the CNN article which states these facts in detail. It was political corruption out in the open, at its finest, but still wasn’t enough for the Republican Senate to do the right thing and even have an impeachment trial. The democratic base pleaded with the Republicans, but the Senate leader – Mitch McConnell just dismissed it and refused to start a trial. Ultimately, the Senate voted to acquit and Donald Trump then gained the ammunition to continue to work in corruption for the rest of his term. Trump impeded the investigation as he told government officials that they were “not to cooperate with the Democrats-run House impeachment inquiry.  The facts came to bear that President Trump would hold money destined for Ukraine unless he spoke out in his support against the Biden’s. He constantly held information and prevented witnesses from appearing at the trials. It was a clear sense of power for political gain, as Trump knew back then that he needed to be re-elected in order to survive upcoming lawsuits when he steps down and becomes a citizen.  Reality has set in, as Donald Trump is no longer president, and he will be facing one lawsuit action with another, and will witness the destruction of his financial wealth.

The 8th thing mentioned in CNN’s article were the Loyalty oaths and personalizing government. Trump demanded personal loyalty from his lawmakers in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. If you crossed him, you were most likely be defeated in the next election, because Trump almost totally controlled the party. Cabinet members had to do things for Trump or risk loosing their jobs.

The 9th thing mentioned were Firing whistleblowers and truth-tellers. If you didn’t give Trump your absolute royalty, you wouldn’t have had a difficult discussion with the president, but instead you would receive tweets and used the power of his office to fire people he disagreed with by tweet. Trump fired his long-time personal friend and personal attorney Michael Cohen. He did the same thing with FBI director James Comey. He fired his Inspector General Michael Atkinson who worked in the Department of Justice for approximately 15 years. Mr. Atkinson succeeded Thomas Monheim who never advanced any further than Acting Inspector General.

The 10th thing Trump has done is enrich himself by profiting from the office of the presidency.  He was the first billionaire to ever become president. Then “he wouldn’t divest from his international business empire.” The appearance of conflict of interest was of big concern, but Donald Trump didn’t care what is conveyed which gave you an idea into Trump’s morals.  With his money and the office that he holds, in his mind gave him the rights to do anything he wanted to do. While president, he was active at several of his golf clubs, and made money from the Federal government on the way, while billing the Federal government millions of dollars for Secret Service agents to stay at his properties while protecting him. With his high-end hotel located in Washington, D.C. many of the GOP insiders and lobbyists, and some foreign officials stayed at his hotel, while Trump claimed to have donated all profits from foreign government to the United States Treasury. The president claimed that he would never take the presidential salary of $400,000 per year, but he made millions off of his office in so many other ways.

Now with Donald Trump about to be impeached a second time, he stands to lose his $400,000 per year salary for life, and his ability to run again for president in 2024 if he is convicted in the Senate. He stands to lose all National Security clearances. Note, that being convicted in the Senate does not warrant any jail time, but it is a sign of things to come that would be very detrimental to Donald J. Trump.
