Trump Forced Out?

First things first.  Firing Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel would be useless.  Jacksjargon eats some crow on that one.  He’d be replaced with someone no better.  If anyone should be fired, it would be Deputy Attorney General Rosenstine.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions is useless.  Just what does he do all day? Rearrange his desk and paper clips?  Rosenstine is the one who gave the go ahead for the Special Counsel even with no crime to investigate. Merely Democrat pressure.  Special Counsels are appointed to investigate a crime.

The uncalled for raid on President Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, is huge. Make no mistake.  It’s not to get Cohen.  It’s all about finding a way to get rid of President Trump.  And apparently they found something of substance.  Mueller’s all Democrat staff of lawyers dug up something (likely something in Trump’s past) that was substantial enough to pass on to the courts system.  Whatever it is could be President Trump’s downfall.  Cohen made things worse by recording many conversations.  As jacksjargon has often referred to in past posts, one does not become a billionaire, especially in New York, without doing what is needed to take care of matters with mayor’s, politicians, unions, contractors, governor’s and  maybe even the mob.  The courts have whatever it is and the Trump camp can’t even review the findings before proceedings have advanced with a thorough review. It could take months.   Would not surprise anyone if they released findings just before the November election this fall.

So all of this begs the question what happens to the President when presumably law breaking is revealed.  Here it gets complicated.  As in the past, our Founding Fathers set up impeachment in the House of Representatives by majority vote.  Then to convict and remove the President from office it requires 67 votes to convict in the Senate.  A President, it is believed, cannot be indicted while in office. Charges would come after he is out of office.  But, there are always revisionists who want to stretch our constitution.  Brain storming is in process and perhaps an exception can be found. They are looking for some basis to avoid the impeachment process.  If so, it is possible, maybe likely, be decided by the Supreme Court and that would possibly begin the first Monday in October, 2018.  They want Trump gone yesterday.  Constitutional scholars are working over time on this issue.  Democrats want to avoid the impeachment/conviction at all costs. And here is why.

Unless the charge, or charges, are clearly established, totally substantiated, and are significant enough, Republicans will not vote to convict President Trump.  Making matters even more difficult, it is highly likely the GOP will increase their margin in the Senate this November.  At present they have 51. Democrats will be defending 26 Senate seats while Republicans only eight seats.  Plus, many Democrat Senators are in big trouble.   It is why, on occasion, you see one pop up on Fox News.  Anything to make them seem not as radical as their Party is or as radical as they have become in having to follow Sen. Chuck Schumer’s  agenda. West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin has become a regular on Fox News trying to appear a non Democrat.  With House minority leader Nancy Pelosi commercials running often, it will not help Democrats.

At this time it appears the Democrats will win back control of the House of the Representatives. Even though polls show their margin of winning the House getting smaller, it is still likely.  They only have to win back 24 seats.  After a Presidential election the Party out of power always gains many seats.  Obama lost 52.  W. Bush lost 30.  And Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades cost him to lose 63 House seats.   The Democrats will be fired up to vote this fall.  Republicans not so.  They are still smarting from Trump signing that 1.3 trillion dollar budget bill.  Enthusiasm will not be the Republicans strong suit.

Look at it this way.  Unless forces against President Trump can find a way around not indicting a President in office, they are stuck with him.  With no conviction in the Senate, Trump can run again in 2020.  His poll numbers growing and his accomplishments gaining favor, he could very well win reelection.  A true Democrat nightmare.   Plus, what will they run on besides more giveaway programs and Trump is bad?  Let’s bring back ISIS?  The constitution is terrible and needs to be fixed?  God is not real?  There are no genders?  Illegals over veterans?  No borders for America?  More illegal aliens from anywhere in the world?  They shall try to hide all of what just mentioned by promising anything and everything that 90% of Americans don’t believe in.  More illegals=more Democrat voters.

There is one major caveat to this entire scenario.  The are many Republican Senators who do not like and want no part of President Trump.  It is possible if charges (crimes) are clear and substantial, there might be enough of them to join the Democrats and vote for conviction in the Senate.  If a trial was held before the Senate changes in the January swearing in, with 49 Democrat Senators they would need 18 Republican Senators to vote for conviction.  It is conceivable.  Vice President Mike Pence would become President. Pence would be much more favorable to many Republican Senators.

If you are only a casual observer of political news, then place your interest on what comes from the wealth of papers and tapes seized in the raid of President Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen.   It’s not about getting Cohen.  It is always about getting rid of President Trump.  For sixteen months the media has made a fool of themselves with the Russia, Russia, Russia nonsense.   Found nothing.  So now the “Let’s Get Trump” derangement syndrome is in the courts with documents.

The strength of what is found in the seized Cohen documents is likely to determine President Trump’s fate.  American history and “As the World Turns” is at stake.

Chappaquiddick: Sleaze Ball Kennedy

A film just released, based upon the actual documented records, Chappaquiddick, recounts the incredible story of a Kennedy who was terribly weak and a coward.

For those who were not of age for 1969, this is the story of how Senator Edward Theodore “Ted” Kennedy managed to escape justice after he drove his car into a lake leaving his lady behind while he swam to safety and failed to report a crime for eleven hours.  Mary Jo Kopechne drowned trying to save herself by gasping for air in the top of the tipped over auto.  Meanwhile the misnamed so called “Lyon of the Senate” was haunted by the fact this may cost him the Presidency.  Not haunted by the death of this lovely lady.  A favorite moment is when he went to his father, famed Joe Kennedy, looking for sympathy and direction.  His father, in a wheel chair totally disabled from a stroke that killed him three months later, looked at his son and picked up his hand and WHAM, slapped his son hard across his face.  It was the Kennedy name, connections and strategy that save this loser from manslaughter.

Some Democrat’s, such as former Connecticut Senator, Christopher Dodd, did all they could to stop the production of this absolutely true story.  No Hollywood leading man would take the Kennedy role out of deference either to the deceased “Teddy”, or for the Kennedy name or the Democrat Party.  But it was still done very well getting predominantly good reviews.  Rotten (the best movie reviewing website one can find) gave a hearty 80% favorable.

The story best told by the reviews from four of the best movie critics in America. First, Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun Times…”Chappaquiddick reminds us that without the Kennedy name and influence the man who drove off a bridge , swam to shore and left a woman to die, and then hiding and in a defense mode should have gone to jail a long time.”

Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post…”Camelot it is not. And as this movie suggests , the American people fall for polished BS every time.”

Kenneth Turan, L.A. Times…”Story of a weak man”  Not particularly appealing individual whose actions frustrated rather than draw us in.”

Stephen Schaeffer, Boston Herald…”Detailed, precise and gut wrenching.”

Ted Kennedy’s older three brothers, promiscuous as they were, were men of courage.  The oldest, Joe, (his fathers pick to become President) was killed piloting a fighter plane during W.W. II.  John (known as Jack) Kennedy, who became  President, against his wishes, was a hero manning a boat and saving crew members. And, Bobbie, smart as he was, a family care taker after his President brother was killed, it seems to jacksjargon simply would not let this disaster happen.

The film is worth seeing.  It’s history done well.  The only good that came out of this was Ted Kennedy never could become President.   The media onslaught never stops against President Trump who is a workaholic and the country is doing well. But, they never wanted to make a big deal out of clear manslaughter case with this sleaze ball who should have received ten years in prison.  The Beat goes on.

Fire the Special Counsel Now!

Jacksjargon has been supporting firing the Special Counsel for many months.  Reason being a Special Counsel is formed to investigate a crime.  There was no crime.  An assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave in to Democrat requests because there were erroneous charges of some kind of collusion between the Trump administrators and the Russians.  By the way, collusion is not a crime.  After a year the Special Counsel found nothing.  So Monday that Counsel went in and took records from President Trump’s private attorney, Michael Cohen,  to continue to look for a crime.  This is a sham.  Armed with all Hillary Clinton attorneys, Robert Mueller’s team will do anything to find something impeachable on President Trump.  What happened to the big investigation of Russian involvement?

This is outrageous.   Here the President is attempting to decide what tactic’s to use against Syria for killing his men, women and children using gas and he has to put up with the distraction of this Special Counsel digging to find anything on the President.  If you researched  the archives of you will find fire the Special Counsel months ago was a major topic.  With a coterie of leftist lawyers, it was always obvious this Counsels purpose was “to get” Trump at all costs.  But, his advisors told him to let them dig because they will find nothing and exonerate him.  What they should have realized is the Special Counsel had motives far greater than merely finding Russian collusion.   It was obvious.  They should be investigating Hillary Clinton for all the charges levied at her by then FBI director  James Comey.  That’s where the real crimes are to be found.

Firing the Special Counsel may get complicated.  Very complicated.  As in earlier posts, only the Justice Dept. can fire the Special Counsel.  The man who created it, Rod Rosenstein, likely won’t do it.  So he should be fired.  If Attorney General Jeff Session hadn’t made a mess of everything by recusing himself  in the nonsensical  Russian investigation, he could fire the Special Counsel.  Jacksjargon feels strongly that this Counsel is no longer looking for Russian collusion.  Sessions should non recuse himself  because circumstances are entirely different.  It is no longer about Russia Russia Russia.  It is about getting his Commander in Chief.  But, Sessions has shown no strong decisiveness. Lack of back bone. Likely he will not non recuse himself.  So the Trump Administration needs to go down a list of justice officials who will finally find one with the back bone to do what should have been done months ago.

The “Swamp” moves ahead.  With the economy soaring, many bonus’ paid to laborers, wages higher, companies coming back to America, ISIS gone, the public never hears any good news.  For example, during eight years of President Obama the business of America shown by the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) averaged 1,5%.   In less than a year, Trump has grown it to 3% 4th quarter last year.  The media does nothing but come up with more personal attacks and never the good that is going on.  And remember the famed words of Winston Churchill…”The greatest argument against democracy is a five minute talk with the average voter.” The average voter hears nothing good.

Jacksjargon again is steadfast.  Fire the Special before they attempt to fire you Mr. President.  That’s what they have always wanted.  And bomb the hell out of Syria’s air force and try and take out what remains of Assad’s forces.  Do it Mr. President!

And you know what?   Jacksjargon believes he will.  Stand by.  Sometimes Trump’s instincts are better than his advisors.  He wanted to fire these guys months ago.  Stand by for big time fireworks.
