Everything our Constitution represents will be turned upside down under a Trump Administration

Less than two weeks from the November 8th national election, so-called bombshells are dropping almost daily especially since the Donald Trump “Access Hollywood” story broke.

Donald Trump has been leading in the “negative press” for the last couple of weeks, and his poll numbers have been plummeting like the Titanic. Who would have thought President Obama’s director of the FBI would throw racist, birther Donald Trump a life preserver?

FBI Director James Comey, a Republican who knowingly disobeyed the Department of Justice protocol and gave sketchy information in a letter to the Republican House leadership that states new emails on another device were discovered and could pertain to the previous Hillary Clinton server investigation, but was not from Clinton or her server.

In our facts don’t matter universe news outlets reported on the what appears to be a hollow story causing a “Breaking News” fury, each cable news channel responded with excitement as this was a bombshell that is another October Surprise, and it was not Trump-related.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, who serves as chairman of the House Oversight Committee, announced “case reopened” around the time Comey’s letter became public: “FBI Director just informed me, ‘The FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation.’ Case reopened.”  Not True!  But it did not matter; the press fell for it hook, line, and sinker.

Chaffetz was so overjoyed he tweeted the aforementioned comments and the press started reporting the story as if the FBI found something nefarious, but in actuality had nothing to do with an act by Hillary. It was emails of Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin, Hillary’s assistant.

The news took everyone who knows better by surprise. This action has never been taken by a DOJ representative 11 days before an election. The story was broken down in a simple format from a tweet by Benjamin Wittes, who is the senior fellow at Brookings, and editor-in-chief for LawFare.

Translation of Comey’s letter: “We had a closed matter. We received some new information. We are reviewing it. I’m informing Congress.”

According to both The New York Times and Politico, Comey never specified where the additional emails came from, but a U.S. official said the new information arose out of the probe into Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin who is under investigation for allegedly sexting a teenage girl. The FBI took possession of the laptop belonging to Weiner and his estranged wife.

The outcome of this election hinges on who can get out the vote, and knowing that the GOP of this age has never met a lie they did not like, that is why Donald Trump can make false statements with no fear of reprisal. Hillary is not perfect but she does not scare our international allies or our citizenry as much as Trump does.

 

What a Trump presidency and Republican Congress would look like

Those who vote for Trump or the Republican down ballot should be prepared to give up their civil liberties because he will rule like a tyrant and his party will most assuredly attack anyone or group of American citizens they deem as an enemy.

  • Trump’s Supreme Court pick will jeopardize your civil rights!
  • Voting Rights Act will be gutted some more.
  • Stop and Frisk will be a national law.
  • Labor Unions will be under greater attack than ever before.
  • Black Lives Matter will be considered a criminal movement and peaceful protesters will be shut down and deemed enemies of the state.
  • Say goodbye to affordable health care; only the rich need apply.
  • Education will be gutted; no chance to get tuition-free Community Colleges
  • Increase in the minimum wage and Social Security won’t happen under Trump
  • Women’s equal pay will never happen under Trump or the GOP.
  • Families will be broken up and sent into concentration camps before being kicked out of the United States for being an undocumented Latino or a law abiding Muslim.

This would only be the beginning; we have not even touched the international issues and concerns he would create.  So what is at stake? Everything our Constitution represents would be turned upside down under a Trump administration, and the election this close to Halloween is scary … Believe Me!
