Enemies of the State

January 8, 2021

“Be not so hot; the duke
Dare no more stretch this finger of mine than he
Dare rack his own; his subject am I not,
Nor here provincial. My business in this state
Made me a looker-on here in Vienna,
Where I have seen corruption boil and bubble
Till it o’errun the stew: laws for all faults,
But faults so countenanc’d that the strong statutes
Stand like the forfeits in a barber’s shop,
As much in mock as mark.”

– Duke Vincentio, Measure for Measure, William Shakespeare

Senator John Hawley, Republican from Missouri, a man former CIA director John Brennan described as the “most craven, unprincipled and corrupt senator” for pandering to Donald Trump’s base and advancing his own personal agenda, joined by 139 Republican House members, challenged the election results when Congress met to certify the Electoral votes.

This was after domestic terrorists invaded the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021.

Twelve other United States Senators, led by Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, also planned an objection to the election’s certification by demanding a ten day “emergency audit” of votes (votes already determined legitimate) despite the fact that they have no power to do so. The list of Senators brown-nosing the Cult of 45 included Senators Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, James Lankford of Oklahoma, Steve Daines of Montana, John Kennedy of Louisiana, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Mike Braun of Indiana, and the soon departing Kelly Loeffler of Georgia; and the list of Senators-elect included Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, Roger Marshall of Kansas, Bill Hagerty of Tennessee and Tommy Tuberville of Alabama.

Eight Seditious Senators followed through with their objections (after domestic terrorists invaded the Capitol Building): Senators Ted Cruz of Texas, Josh Hawley of Missouri, Cindy-Hyde Smith of Mississippi, John Kennedy of Louisiana, Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, Roger Marshall of Kansas, Rick Scott of Florida, and Tommy Tuberville of Alabama.

Representative Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), one of the House members objecting to Electoral counts, after losing a court case attempting to force Vice President Mike Pence to throw out legitimate Electors and replace them with Trump loyalists, suggested the ruling meant street violence was the only option for Trump supporters who believe the president’s baseless voter fraud claims.

All of these members of the United States Congress should be effectively considered Enemies of the State.

The Second Clause of Article 1 Section 5 of the United States Constitution reads:

“Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.”

The United States Senate and House of Representatives need to use Article 1 of our United States Constitution, which determines the powers and responsibilities of the Legislative Branch, to deal with their “disorderly” members of Congress who endangered their colleagues’ lives for insurrectionist political theater.

These codependent Congressional apostates are enabling political criminals. But the president of the United States, well, his behavior is another whole level of malfeasant depravity altogether: he is the prevailing source of decay sitting at the heart of our Constitutional Republic, and on January 6th, he encouraged his supporters to engage in violent action at our Capitol Building, incited their ire and seditious activities, and then walked away to relish the carnage he pointedly instigated from his safe space.

President Donald J. Trump, a man of raging incompetence, habitual failure, and destructive megalomania, spent his entire term in office engaged in almost no governing whatsoever, enabled by the gratuitous appropriation of his predecessor’s economic recovery in conjunction with the Senate Majority Leader’s political avarice; he did nothing to contain the pestilence of pandemic, allowed 400,000 people to die in his last year in office, and is pissing all over Democracy on his way out the fucking door.

His reality shit show is one of the worst productions we have ever had to endure; network cancellation cannot come soon enough.

I hope the live series finale involves the inimical lead being removed from the White House in handcuffs. It would get great ratings.

This madness, all of it, is the very definition of Lawless Politics.

There is rarely any substantial consequence for society’s ruling elite when engaged in Political Crime in America. That needs to change now; otherwise it is likely this will not be the last time we experience political leaders attempting to undermine our Republic with seditious activities empowered by their voracious feasting upon the discontent, willful ignorance, and utter stupidity found within fractured segments of the American populace.
