THE ABSURD TIMES — STILL

Legal Justifications for Impeachment

Posted in Uncategorized by @honestcharlie on May 25, 2017

THE ABSURD TIMES

“No, my son. I have it on the Highest authority that you’d best enjoy yourself here, for afterwards there is no chance for you.”

So, we will finish with the impeachment now.

  • Emoluments: Anything he does enriches himself, including visitors at Trump tower near the White house. Also, the only bank that would even consider loaning him money was Russian owned. Not clear how much he owes. Every act so far designed to enrich the upper 1% (he is one of them).
  • Treason: Ample evidence of sharing top classified information with Russia – in the White house!
  • Firing Comey, stating the whole reason was to hinder the investigation into him, his staff, and Russia: All clearly obstruction of Justice and admittedly so.

The Constitution uses the term “high crimes and misdemeanors”, not clear what the latter is in this case, but the crimes part is pretty clear.

Below are discussions of it in more detail, including one congressman, from Texas, who openly called for the impeachment. Some phrases had been blanked out as [expletive deleted], but we used linguistic techniques to reconstruct them.[1]

Last week, Texas Democratic Congressmember Al Green became the first congressmember to call for President Trump’s impeachment from the floor of the House of Representatives. Since then, the African-American lawmaker has received a barrage of racist threats, including voicemails in which callers threaten to lynch him. For more, we speak with Congressmember Green.

THE ABSURD TIMES

SECTION 1
In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President.
SECTION 2
Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.
SECTION 3
Whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the Vice President as Acting President.
SECTION 4
Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

DECISION FOR IMPEACHMENT
EDITORIAL MEETING

We had an editorial meeting of the entire staff to discuss the future, or lack of it. Editors and contributors such as Czar Donic, Bernard Shaw, Arthur Schopenhauer, Papa Yaga, Honest Charlie, Ellis Dea, Tsar Donic, and others sat at the table. In the center was the most beautiful chocolate cake you’ve ever seen in your entire life. That cake was really wonderful, believe you me.

First discussed was the farce of religion and what is done in its name. Arguments flew back and forth until Shaw said:

Beware of the man whose God is in the skies.

That pretty much ended the discussion, especially since Arthur began to show signs of irritation and nobody wanted to let him go on about the subject.

Eventually, things led to the talk of impeachment. It is pretty clear that such a step would have to be started by congress, with a majority of Republicans, and that was considered unlikely so long as Trump was likely to sign anything they finally sent them. He likes signing things anyway, no matter what they mean. If something happened, abruptly, we would get Pence, the Ryan, then Hatch, then Tillerson, and so on down the way until perhaps things would wind up with Betsy De Voss as President. So, something had to be done.

This led to the 25th Amendment. For some reason, actually for obvious reasons, there has been a tremendous upsurge of searches of the 25th Amendment. It seems that until LBJ, after the Kennedy assassination, recognized the need to have things clearly outlined and the amendment was passed. So we looked it up, several places, along with discussions, and here it is:

Section 1. In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President.

Section 2. Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.

Section 3. Whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the Vice President as Acting President.

Section 4. Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.[3]

Additionally, after the Vice President, comes the Speaker of the House (Paul Ryan), then the President pro temp of the Senate (Orrin Hatch of Utahahah), and then the Secretary of state and so on dawn the cabinet. However, section 4 has never been invoked, although the other sections have been needed. Mike Pence could conspire with other member of the cabinet, and then send a letter to Ryan and Hatch. After that, things get hairy, but they are spelled out and all you need to do is read and imagine. It could happen.

The decision was made to talk about impeachment, obviously, with a slight objection from Papa Yaga, and we promised to put an explanation of Russsia at the end. He agreed, and thus the discussion.

We need to review the election. Bernie Sanders was very popular and had great enthusiastic support, both from regular Democrats and from independents. Many who were Obama voters, and some who later voted for Trump, were amongst his supporters. However, the party was seen as having been bought by corporate interests, and Hillary’s ties to Wall Street were well known. Her long association with corporate interests represented everything that had turned off many voters, anger some, and led many others simply not to participate. It is still clear that the party is unwilling to be the party of the lower and middle classes, the unions, teachers, and workers, and instead does what it can to support the corporate world.

The only worse force is the Republican Party. As it stands today, it is not only highly influenced by corporate interests, but those very corporate interests have been appointed to Presidential Cabinet positions. In other words, Democrats may have served corporate interests, Republican are corporate interests. This is what we call a two party system. Trump fooled enough people by not sounding corporate, that is the only difference.

He wants to provide Tax reform. More precisely, he wishes to take 800 billion dollars away from Medicaid and give it to corporations in the form of tax cuts. He will try to undermine and remove any and all of the "New Deal" and any legislation passed since that helped the lower and middle classes. There is no doubt.

So what does this have to do with impeachment? Simply this: it is necessary to keep the Republican Party, the majority party in the House, preoccupied with this and other issues until a midterm election can allow enough opposition party members to be elected to stop some of this attack on people.

Blame the Russians for interfering? Haven’t we gone over this enough? First, we know there is no direct evidence that they did the hack. Beyond that, who knows? We do know that we constantly interfere in other people’s elections and governments, even overturning them. There is no reason to doubt that they adopted our practice. It is the job of our own center-intelligence folks to look out for that.

Trump said "I love Wikileaks!" He encouraged them to look for Hilary’s e-mails. And we don’t care about them anyway. If Donald can share intelligence openly with the Russians, why can’t she have her own e-mail system? And who cares? She is over with and the only thing that is now disturbing about he is that she wants to be considered part of the "resistance". That is worthy or resistance right there.

Ok, so we know all the typical B.S., but we do need to occupy Congress with something distracting to keep them from screwing us. The most obvious is Impeachment, using every Chauvinistic and Jingoistic (look the words up) cliché we can, even though we know it is erroneous. It is the only sort of thing that would get our media and Trump types to start impeachment. So, here are some points to make:

  • The Russians have hacked into our "Democracy" (forget the real definition of "Democracy"
  • Trump and his team worked with them on this.
  • Lots of money went to Russia and then much gets kicked back to Trump.
  • Flynn told the Russians that they were going to life sanctions when Trump becomes President.
  • Flynn got paid by Turkey (his guys in suits attacks peaceful demonstrations in D.C. and Erdogan is now attacking the D.C. Police force for defending the demonstrators).
  • Russian TV hired Flynn.
  • Kushner gets payoffs from Russia (remember, Russia = Bad Guys).
  • Trump fired Comey, head of FBI, because he investigated all this.
  • People involved with Trump and Russia are all taking the 5th which means they are guilty – Trump says so.

There are even some true points to make, although they might be less effective:

  • All republicans seem to want people to die of existing conditions.
  • People will loose their disability payments.
  • Food Stamps will be cut in half or more.
  • They will soon go after Medicare, Social Security, and anything else that helps people.

Well, that’s about it. It has been very tiring to watch this happening. We have had it.

Remembering the Nakba

Seventy years on from the Nakba, Palestinians seem to move from one cycle of oppression to another

A Palestinian man walks front of graffiti that reads “Returning” as Palestinians attend “camp of return” to mark refugees’ ties to lands lost in Rafah, southern Gaza Strip, during a gathering to mark the 69th anniversary of the “Nakba” (catastrophe). Nakba means “catastrophe” in reference to the birth of the state of Israel 69 years ago in British-mandate Palestine, which led to the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who either fled or were driven out of their homes during the 1948 war over Israel’s creation.Photo by Abed Rahim Khatib / Flash 90

Jerry Brown Sells Out
By

Jerry Brown used to be a good guy. Here he is signing some legislation that forbids any attempts at Boycott, Sanctions, and divestment against Israel. Our story below is about the hunger strike of Marwan Barghouti and others around the world against the treatment of Palestinians. Nelsen Mandella and Jimmie Carter support Barghouti, as do many others. Brown the Sell Out, followed by more illustrations and then an interview:

And another of Nitwityahoo’s bitches:

Here is Barghoutti’s son:

It has been almost a month since over 1,500 Palestinian prisoners have been on hunger strike inside Israeli jails. The strike, which began on April 17, was called by Marwan Barghouti to protest poor living conditions in prison and the administrative detention law, which allows Palestinians to be held without charge. Barghouti is the most high-profile Palestinian in Israeli detention. Some have described him as the "Palestinian Nelson Mandela." In a New York Times op-ed announcing the strike last month, Barghouti wrote, "Having spent the last 15 years in an Israeli prison, I have been both a witness to and a victim of Israel’s illegal system of mass arbitrary arrests and ill-treatment of Palestinian prisoners. After exhausting all other options, I decided there was no choice but to resist these abuses by going on a hunger strike." We speak to his son Arab Barghouthi. He recently launched the "saltwater challenge," asking supporters to express their solidarity with the hunger strikers by posting videos online drinking saltwater.

The Absurd Times The Trump Pawns

THE ABSURD TIMES

Illustration: For a long time, I had nothing but contempt for LBJ, what with his forcing hundreds of thousands of people into the military combat in an illegal, vile, and disgusting war. Now, he looks like a prophet. He passed Medicare, the Civil Rights Act, the law that forbids discrimination on basis of NATIONAL ORIGIN, and so on. At the same time, he was John Kennedy’s vice President and the Republican opponent, Barry Goldwater, advocating "bombing Hanoi into the stone age," and the John Birch Society (a fascistic organization backed by the Koch brothers’ father – yes the ones who were behind the Tea Party). Not

to be partisan, Nixon wanted a National Healthcare System.

If what he had so say above is not clear, perhaps you have heard of Bob Dylan:

http://absurdtimes.blogspot.com/2017/05/only-pawn-in-their-game-bob-dylan.html

So what has happened? Well, France just proved they had more brains than the American Public, but to be fair, her opponent was not very well-known, and he was certainly not the product of a fixed system as was Hillary.

On to Trump, starting with international affairs. Brexit made Trump possible. Trump made Le Pen impossible. This will continue. When we heard about the hack, if there was one, and heard that there was no election discussion possible, we posted this: http://absurdtimes.blogspot.com/2017/05/dear-france-juste-une-note-pour-vous.html

Fortunately, France got the idea and the warning was not needed. Putin would like the European Union to fall apart, but that is unlikely now.

The attacks on Hispanics and especially Mexicans here have made our servant in Mexico very unpopular. This will lead to the election of Obrador as the next President of Mexico. We will do our best to prevent this, and the CIA knows it will come. Will they follow orders and kill him first? Even the previous right-wing President, Fox, said "We will not pay for your fucking wall!" [Direct quote]

Speaking of Putin: he does not want NATO expanding eastward. Russia has always been surrounded by enemies and of course he hates Hillary. She helped the coup to overthrow a friendly leader (to Russia) with a fascist oriented one. What is to be expected.

Let’s move internally: Hillary announced that she is part of the resistance! Who does she think she is fooling? She is part of what many here resisted. Many who voted for Trump originally voted for Obama – because he seemed to want to change things for the better. This time around, Bernie Sanders attracted many of those who wanted such changes, but that was buried.

The typical Trump voter did not know much about policy, but most of them are furious at the healthcare dismantling the Republicans are carrying out. Right now, they want to cut 840 Billion dollars from Medicaid. Why? It’s a part of "Tax Reform". In this case, it means giving that money to the upper 1% of the population. Of the 217 representatives who voted for this atrocity, only 17 were brave enough to have a town hall this time. None of them were well-received.

Forget about net neutrality. Forget about FCC regulation. Right wing forces are taking over the media. For example, Sinclair is taking over the Tribune – a right-wing newspaper at best, but at least a newspaper. Get used to slower speeds. However, in order to comment to the FCC, you can go to GOFCCYOURSELF.COM . See, they made it incredibly complicated this time to comment, so this site was set up in order to make it easier.

If we want to discuss regulation, the best sign so far in the many demonstrations is: DEREGULATE MY UTERUS! I know, it’s a women’s thing, but they have no impute as to this health care bill. All the senators working on the Senate version are white males of middle age (mainly).
