The Troops on the Streets in Washington, D.C. Mean the U.S. Constitution Is Holding Strong

by Charles S. Oaxpatu

Constitution

This is a message for my readers in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and other foreign countries. Because I have heard them actually say it over many years, I know numerous citizens in your countries believe they know more about the United States of America and its unique culture than even we Americans do. As a professional anthropologist, I am here to tell you that you are dead wrong about that. Any good professional anthropologist will tell you that it is impossible to know a country and its culture without going to that country, living in that country a long time, and immersing one’s self in the dominant language and culture of that country as an actual participant—–preferably with a strong background in a social sciences discipline.

Every few days, I hear or read a news report from overseas about how the United States is in chaos and on the verge of falling. Europeans saw the recent attack on the U.S. Capitol Building, and it reminded them of scenes past European revolutions, such as the ones in Russia in 1917 and 1991. Citizens of Third World countries pick up their newspapers, read about that attack, and fear the United States has become a banana republic. They see 25,000 military troops in the streets of Washington, D.C. and assume the sky must be falling in the United States—-just  like it has fallen so many times in the long histories of their own countries. Just like Chicken Little, they think about our country, start running, and scream:

The sky is falling in America!!! The sky is falling!!! The sky is falling!!! The sky is falling!!! The sky is falling!!! The sky is falling!!! The sky is falling!!! The sky is falling!!! The sky is falling!!! The sky is falling!!!

That is not what is happening in the United States today——none of it——and you need to know that. The United States is strong as ever, and more importantly, the U.S. Constitution has held its own through four years of battering and is still holding strong against an extremely rare and aberrant American politician (a snake oil salesman——a con man with no moral fiber, sense of honor, basic decency, or honesty) who deceived and conned all too many Americans into electing him President of the United States in 2016. Our founding fathers feared that a man like Trump might one day arise in our country, and they tried hard to install governmental measures to prevent that from ever happening, but no human plans are perfect, and one such man sneaked by those measures in 240 years. Think about that——only one such deeply evil man in 240 years out of 45 presidents. That is really a pretty good run of American success.

Our founding fathers suffered from one bad assumption——-the assumption that all men who would be President of the United States would be men of honor——-an almost universal social assumption about the expected personal conduct of American men for more than 200 years in the 18th century, 19th century, and most of the 20th century.

President Trump exhibited himself to be anything else but a man of honor living in a post-modern time and place in human history where there is often little sense of honor among men and women. That historical sense of personal honor seems to be dying out. President Trump’s actions showed us the leaking holes our founding fathers did not see in the form of government they were establishing in the late 1700s, and thus were not able to plug. Trump and his evil have inadvertently revealed the locations of those holes, and we Americans shall institute measures to fill those holes so no future American president can get away with doing the things Trump did.

Moreover, I suspect the two major political parties in the United States will institute rules to prevent a man or woman like Trump from ever again becoming a party nominee for President of the United States. The Democratic Party has already instituted such rules (many years ago), and after the bitter taste Trump has left in the mouths of traditional Republicans, I expect they too will soon institute such measures. My point is simply this. Trump was a rare aberration, and the mob attack on the U.S. Capitol Building was an equally  rare aberration in American history. As the old saying goes:

Sometimes bad shit just happens.

It happens because we live in an imperfect world. So sure, it is going to happen once in a great while. However, that does not mean it is going to become a daily way of life in the United States, and it does not mean the sky is falling. In fact, President Trump was the antithesis of traditional, historical American core values and ideals. Our country and its people will not be going in the Trumpian direction in future years. I think you can count on that——and when the Baby Boomer generation dies out over the next few years——you can be sure of it. Most of the evil you see in Trumpism is the collective residue of a past American hate pattern that the so-called Greatest Generation instilled into a fraction of their Baby Boomer children. When those children are gone, Trumpism will be gone with them, and mother nature will soon do the job through a process called “death by natural causes” because all of those Baby Boomers are old people now.

Yes, foreign folks. You will see 25,000 military troops on the streets in Washington, D.C. tomorrow for the inaugurations of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. However, their presence does not mean the same thing that you often take it to mean in your own countries when such troops are on the streets. Their presence means the U.S. Constitution has held up strong against four years of battering by a rare, evil American president. Under that same U.S. Constitution, the American people voted him out of office as punishment for the evil he has committed. Moreover, it was done through a legal, clean, and free election——certified by the 50 states and our courts to have been one of the cleanest elections in all of American history.

So, when you see the troops on the streets tomorrow, I want you to see them as they are. They are the descendants of the same American troops who hit the beaches of Normandy with your troops on D-Day in 1944. The same American ideals and commitments they had in their hearts still beat strong in the hearts of these service men and women today. You can rest assured of that.

Here are the official oaths of office they take when they first enter the U.S. Armed Forces, and they take that oath very seriously and are often reminded of it in the course of their service. Notice that their first and primary oath of commitment is to the U.S. Constitution and the democratic principles it embodies:

Oath of Regular Enlisted Men and Women

I, (state name of enlistee), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice (So help me God.)

Oath of Enlisted Men and Women in the National Guard

I, (state name of enlistee), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and of the State of (applicable state) against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to them; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the Governor of (applicable state) and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to law and regulations. (So help me God).

Oath of Regular Commissioned Officers

I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

Oath of Commissioned Officers in the National Guard

I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State (Commonwealth, District, Territory) of ___ against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the Governor of the State (Commonwealth, District, Territory) of ___, that I make this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the Office of [grade] in the Army/Air National Guard of the State (Commonwealth, District, Territory) of ___ on which I am about to enter, so help me God.

That rare aberration known as Donald J. Trump has been kicked out of office through a free and fair election. He will be leaving town with his tail between his legs tomorrow morning——and rightly so. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, who were elected President of the United States and Vice President of the United States through free and fair elections, will take their oaths of office at noon tomorrow—–just the same as the 45 American presidents and vice presidents who came before them. The U.S. Constitution has held, it is holding now, and it will continue to hold as it has always held. The troops who are so committed to it are your assurance of that. The sky is not falling in the United States of America. Things will be back to normal as soon as possible in our country. You can count on that. So rest easy United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and NATO countries. We still love you, and you can count on us. Rest easy Third World nations and other free world nations. The United States of America is back at noon tomorrow.

Trumps Departure from the Presidency: T-Minus 1 Day and Counting

by Charles S. Oaxpatu

I am tired and not up to writing a long blog article like the one I did last night. Therefore, with regard to how I feel about the departure of President Trump from the presidency on Wednesday, I shall leave you——for now——with one of my favorite things in this world. It truly reflects how I feel about Trump’s departure:

T-Minus 2 Days and Counting Until Donald J. Trump Is Gone from the White House

by Charles S. Oaxpatu

Are you looking forward to noon on Wednesday, January 20, 2021? You can bet your best blue velvet chair that I am! Here are a few related thoughts that have been swirling around in my mind:

(1) Although possibly wrong, I have pretty much concluded that no domestic or foreign terrorism will be associated with the inaugural ceremonies in Washington, D.C. over the next three days. The city is guarded and fortified enough to deter any significant armed attack by terrorist elements. The Trumpite, racist, fascist, and southern redneck forces who attacked the U.S. Capitol Building a while back are too drunk on their perceived victory and are taking the next three days off to fully bathe in their success and to completely savor it. As recently reported by the news media, they also seem to be using this time to do recruiting and fundraising, based on their sense of success. I suspect they will continue in this happy, self-serving mode for the immediately foreseeable future.

(2) I recall a letter a local Republican wrote to the editor at the Knoxville News-Sentinel at the end of President Obama’s second term. It was a rather euphemistic letter where the author emphasized over and over that the American people must never again elect a president——and I quote——“like this.”  By the end of the letter, it was quite clear to me that the term “like this” was a substitute for the n-word and other disgusting racial epithets.

A few American historians have noted that presidents first elected in years ending with a zero tend to get assassinated. For example, Abraham Lincoln was elected in 1860, James Garfield was elected in 1880, John F. Kennedy was elected in 1960. Unfortunately, Joe Biden was elected in 2020, but I do not think he will be assassinated by the various clown forces that attacked the U.S. Capitol Building. Why? Killing poor old Joe would shove a woman “like this” straight into the presidency——a fate worse than their own deaths to assorted Trumpites. Therefore, I think Joe Biden will stay safe until he eventually dies from natural causes.

(3) Many Christian Fundamentalists and Conservative Evangelicals remain unable to accept the inevitable fact that Joe Biden will become President of the United States on Wednesday of this week. After all, according to the fundies, the oil-filled hand of God himself——the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob in the Holy Bible——personally selected Donald J. Trump to be President of the United States in 2016. Trump was The Anointed One of the Lord. He was the Chosen One to save the fundie belief system and save the fundie subculture as the model for all other Americans to follow, whether they like it or not. Numerous fundie preachers, prophets, and evangelists bought into the “Trump is the new King Cyrus” nonsense pushed by Evangelist Lance Walnau, and far, far, far more of the rank and file fundie pewsitters bought into it as part of the fundamentalist cult of spiritual certainty.

Therefore, as the fundie thinking goes, how could The Anointed One of the Lord fail to be re-elected to a second term as president in 2020? If God was with Trump, then who could have been successful against him? His re-election was an obvious certainty, and if he appeared to lose the election at some point, then the election must have been illegally rigged in favor of Joe Biden.

Now, here is the really unusual and fun part of this element of fundie faith. (I was reading about this two days ago.) Some fundie leaders and their fundie followers believe with great certainty that God is going to suddenly and personally intervene in human affairs with a bonafide miracle (like raising Lazarus from the dead) between right now and noon on Wednesday. The full and exact nature of this miracle is a mystery, but they feel certain it is coming. By the Holy hand of God, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will not take the Presidential Oath of Office and Vice Presidential Oath of Office when the clock strikes noon. Instead, God will miraculously stand Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence in their places on the inauguration platform and Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Sonia Sotomayor will swear them in for second terms as President of the United States and Vice President of the United States. I suppose these fundies believe, when that miraculous moment comes, the whole world will then know President Trump truly is The Anointed One of the Lord. Then everyone on planet Earth will know that all of the fundie bullshit and massive fundie ignorance spread around since 1920 really are the one, only, and “true” Christian faith in all the world.

My position has been and continues to be that the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob is highly unlikely to have designated a wealthy, conscienceless, uncompassionate, uncaring, unloving, lying, grifting, sociopathic coprolite, with the future deaths of 400,000 people on his hands, as The Anointed One of the Lord. Sure. God could have done that if he wanted to do so, and he could work some sort of miracle on the inaugural platform on Wednesday. However, I think such a miracle——where Trump is concerned——would be way out of character with the authentic Jesus of Nazareth. That is my way of saying that this sudden miracle is not going to happen, and when it does not, I hope the fundies will finally understand that Trump was not a gift to them from God, but rather, a gift to them from Satan. The fundies sacrificed the love and ways of Jesus to feast upon that unholy gift——displaying the fact that they want power in this world rather than Jesus himself. They want the kind of power Satan offered to Jesus in the desert wilderness——an offer Jesus rejected——but an offer the fundies took with great zest and relish in 2016.

Once again, I am predicting that no such sudden miracle will occur at noon on Wednesday, and if the fundies are smart, they will then realize that Donald J. Trump is not now and never has been The Anointed One of the Lord. Furthermore, they will realize that the Lord of Darkness (Satan, negativism, entropy, etc.) deceived and blinded their fundie leaders (and them) to the deeply evil nature of Trump and seduced them into craving the power of this world rather than the simple, loving ways of Jesus. Something like a version of the famous movie scene below may be what actually happened in the spiritual realm to Lord Trumpauron and his snarling fundie army across the past four years until they were finally and thoroughly defeated by Jesus, Biden, and Harris in Georgia. And yes——I bet you C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien discussed these book scenes and their spiritual meanings in depth long ago over lunch and a brew at the Inklings Pub, near The University of Oxford, to get it just right:

(4) President Trump’s lawyers have apparently told him that he cannot use his pardon power to pardon himself from alleged federal crimes. The key basis is the old English Common Law idea that a person cannot function as the judge over their own alleged crimes in any sort of legal proceeding. Last night, the folks at CNN and MSNBC talked as if Trump has already decided not to pardon himself.

Pardoning one’s self while serving as President of the United States is really unexplored legal territory at the level of the federal judiciary. Trump is old and afraid of going to prison for the rest of his life. When a person is in that sort of situation, all possibly useful cards are left on the table. That being the case, I am going to predict Trump will indeed issue a written presidential pardon for himself——just on the outside possibility that it might eventually pass muster and actually work. He will also issue blank check pardons for certain members of his family, such as Ivanka Kushner, Donald Trump, Jr., and Jared Kushner.

I am wondering whether Trump might issue a couple of “Crazy Ivan” pardons in a crude attempt to look magnanimous and forgiving. For example, might he issue a let-bygones-be-bygones pardon to Michael Cohen in hopes of regaining his loyalty and shutting his mouth before the Attorney General of New York comes calling with an arrest warrant for Trump?  Beats me? Trump world is a crazy place!

(5) The option for Trump to declare martial law is probably off the table now. The seditious insurrection failed, and declaring martial law would gain him nothing but laughter and a quick third impeachment. All the face cards in President Trump’s deck are gone, and Mike Pence appears to be unofficially running the country in his place.

(6)  Reportedly, again from CNN and MSNBC, President Trump will not be attending the inauguration ceremony on Wednesday, and he wants to avoid leaving the Washington, D.C. area on Air Force 1. Instead, he would like to fly out on a privately owned airplane. I suppose this is a matter of being in full control of his own destiny. He also says that he wants to leave the D.C. area while he is still President of the United States. The idea is to avoid leaving as a person who has lost the presidency while still there.

President Trump has supposedly asked the U.S. Department of Defense to throw him a grand, pomp-and-circumstance going away ceremony at Andrews Air Force Base on Wednesday morning.  Will that actually happen? Word of his desire fanned out into official Washington, D.C. over the weekend and was met with scorn from assorted government officials who view him as the only American president to ever lead a coup d’etat insurrection against the U.S. Government on Capitol Hill and the only president to ever get his inner peaches removed——twice. If I were a betting man, my best bet would be that his desire does not get totally snubbed. He may not get the grand send-off he most desires, but because he is still President of the United States at the time of his departure, the military will give him a simple, dignified “bye-bye” ceremony.

(7) Before leaving, I suspect President Trump will look back across his last four years in office and ask himself how presidential matters could have gone so badly for him when he is such a great guy and an obvious genius (strictly his opinion of himself). If he were to ask me about that, my response would be simple:

Donald. If the heart, soul, and personality that reside inside your cranium had been the sane, balanced, compassionate heart, soul, and personality of a highly intelligent person, some person other than Donald J. Trump, you would still be sitting in the White House this morning. Your heart, soul, and personality are your own worst enemies—and they lead you into tragedy. You proved it to a voting majority of the American people for four straight years. I know you do not understand that, but nothing in your personal and emotional life will ever change for the better until the day you do. In my honest opinion, you need serious, long-term psychotherapy, Donald. Take it seriously, identify the best Ph.D psychotherapist in the Palm Beach area of Florida, and begin working on yourself along with that person. Stick with it for a few years, and in the end, you will never be sorry you did it.

(8) No one has mentioned it so far, but it is probably coming. I will be the first to admit that I know very little about international law and what formally constitutes “crimes against humanity.” It will not be me, but I strongly suspect some American citizen or a group of American citizens is already combing the fine print of international law to determine whether Donald J. Trump can be charged with alleged crimes against humanity for willfully negligent behavior in office that——arguably——led to the unnecessary deaths of 500,000+ American citizens from COVID-19.

(9) President Trump deserves significant praise for COVID-19 vaccine development under Operation Warp Speed. He deserves significant scorn for failure to develop and implement a workable and efficient federal plan to inject American arms with that vaccine. COVID-19 testing was an utter disaster by virtue of willful neglect.

(10) Finally, we have a 1980s musical “Dear John” letter to President Donald John Trump for a presidential job very badly done. We have no doubt whatsoever that future professors of American history will record Donald J. Trump——for generations to come——as the worst president in American history:

You Cannot Make Up This Stuff: President Trump, Mike Lindell, and Martial Law

by Charles S. Oaxpatu

Friday nights in the United States are usually devoted to dates, entertainment, and other light-hearted distractions. Therefore, you might have missed this very serious news story that came out last night in The Rolling Stone. Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction, and you have my pledge, I am not making up this stuff. Who could? Get a load of this news story; brace for laughter and spewing your last sip of morning coffee:

Trump Calls in Pillow Salesman to Discuss Possibility of Instituting Martial Law

It shows just how loony and desperate President Trump has become during his final days in office.

Did You Catch President Trump’s Secret “Greenlight” Signal Embedded in his Most Recent Video Message to the American Public?

by Charles S. Oaxpatu

President Trump likes to do subtle wordplay with the words “would be,” “would not be,” “could be” “could not be,” “can,” and “cannot” to either cover his sorry hind end or send secret signals to his nefarious followers. How many of you recall the little cover-his-ass maneuver Trump did with Vladimir Putin and the news media at the Helsinki Summit in Finland? It caused an uproar!!! Here is Trump’s famous statement at the podium on whether or not Russia interfered on his behalf in the 2016 presidential election:

My people came to me, [Director of National Intelligence] Dan Coats came to me and some others saying they think it’s Russia. I have President Putin, he just said it’s not Russia. I will say this, I don’t see any reason why it would be.”

I suspect Trump may have engaged in another similar wordplay maneuver with the word “cannot” in the cover-his-ass video his lawyers forced him to make (against his will) to help toward absolving him of legal responsibility for inciting the homegrown terrorist insurrection at the U.S. Capitol Building last week. Trump knows full well that the racist, Nazi, and right wing militia organizations that support him carefully analyze the wording of his public messages to identify any subtle desires he has or orders he wants them to carry out for him. The fact that they do such careful analyses is well known to the American news media.

As you know, President Trump has been under something that roughly approximates house arrest  at the White House while Vice President Mike Pence functions unofficially as President of the United States. Trump’s daycare minders (the few remaining adults) at the White House and various social media platforms appear to have taken away his communications devices and access to social media so he cannot send direct messages to his followers and his favorite domestic terrorist groups. Reportedly, Trump has been desperate to make contact with them somehow. I suspect his desperation found an outlet in that little video clip he made at the behest of his lawyers, and he embedded a secret and very subtle “Greenlight to Attack” message to his followers in that video clip. Once again, it was a wordplay using the word “cannot.” Here is the video clip of the message Trump’s lawyers compelled him to send. Can you identify the small, subtle message to his homegrown terrorist followers in that video message? You may click on the following safe link to view it:

Click Here and Then Play the Video Clip

Did you catch it?  Look at this short but subtle embedded message Trump is sending to his followers:

I cannot emphasize that there must be no violence, no lawbreaking, and no vandalism of any kind.

Really? His lawyers wanted him to emphasize to his domestic terrorist followers the necessity to avoid violence, lawbreaking, and vandalism. However, President Trump has done something very different with the foregoing video statement. He is saying that he cannot make such an emphasis to his crazy followers. Trump is actually sending a subtle message to his followers with that short statement, and they will probably read it this way after carefully parsing the wording——and Trump full well knows that:

My lawyers forced me, against my will, to convey this larger overall video message about avoidance of violence, lawbreaking, and vandalism prior to the inauguration. As your president, I cannot do that. If you catch this small, subtle message I have embedded in the larger video message, this is my official greenlight to you to launch domestic terrorist attacks on my behalf toward installing me (Donald J. Trump) as President of the United States for a second term——because I actually won the 2020 presidential election by a landslide—-not Joe Biden. Forget the overall video message and what it seems to say. Do what I am ordering you to do instead.

The good agents and code breakers at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)  have a much better eagle eye for such things than I do. Therefore, I feel sure that they have already discerned the evil President Trump was trying to do with this subtle, embedded message. Sadly, I think it is safe to say that the homegrown terrorist groups and individuals who assaulted the U.S. Capitol Building discerned this embedded message from President Trump before the FBI did——and certainly before I did. With little doubt, this is one reason why the FBI, the municipal authorities, and the U.S. Secret Service in Washington, D.C. have stationed a small army of National Guard troops, agents, and police officers around the city to protect its people and property from the actions of homegrown domestic terrorists between now and Inauguration Day. Let us pray that all of the protective measures being put into place will be effective, and we will see Joe Biden and Kamala Harris take their oaths of office without any sort of malevolent interference or incidents. No one will be happier than me in the moments when they say “I do solemnly swear…”

If the FBI and the municipal authorities in Washington, D.C. have discovered that secret embedded message from President Trump—-and I feel sure that they have—–former President Trump is going to be in one huge hell of a mess with the Attorney General of Washington, D.C. at about 30 minutes after the noon hour on January 20, 2021 and especially so if some sort of terroristic violence erupts over the next few days before the inauguration ceremonies.

Dear Readers…….

by Charles S. Oaxpatu

Hi folks. One of my readers sent me a message to say that the hyperlinks in my blog articles are not working. I assume that means that a person clicks on a video link or a written out link, and it does not allow them to go to that link. Has anyone else experienced the same problem?  Thanks!!!

Where did you guys go yesterday? Only three people showed up yesterday or maybe one person showed up three times. Are my predictions that come true getting a little too scary for you when they come true—-and you worry the FBI might show up and knock on your door because you visit this site?  Perish the thought!!!  I do not personally know a single person who is a militia member, neoNazi, or right wing terrorist. Donald Trump is just so consistent and far gone in his ways that his actions and inactions are incredibly easy to predict. It is a good thing Trump was not Japanese and did not plan the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. Every American ship and airplane would have been lying in wait to ambush the Japanese task force on December 7, 1941.

Let’s Play a Game Called “Where Is Donald J. Trump?”

by Charles S. Oaxpatu

No one outside of the White House has seen Donald J. Trump since about noon last Wednesday. That was seven days ago! How many times over the past five years have you seen Trump drop out of sight for seven days? Yes. I know:

How fresh that breeze feels!!!

Let us play a game. The name of that game is Where Is Donald J. Trump? This is a game that combines personal imagination with knowledge from the daily news and American history.  You play the game by writing one or more imaginative paragraphs expressing where you think Donald J. Trump is located right now and what his personal circumstances are at the moment.

I will go first just to give you an example of how to play the game, and you may play by writing your paragraphs in the comments section. Here goes:

I think Donald J. Trump is in the White House at this moment. He has been there continuously since last Wednesday afternoon.  He was a free man until the insurrection ended on Capitol Hill. By the time it was put down, about 7:00 p.m. last Wednesday, Trump was involuntarily placed under house arrest by Vice President Mike Pence and the few remaining members of the Trump administration and members of the Secret Service at the White House—-people I am referring to collectively herein as “the staff.” 

At first, they kept Trump in one room and kept a close eye on him. He could only go to the restroom with a security escort. The major goal was to keep him away from any and all electronic devices that would allow him to make contact with the world outside of the White House. Unfortunately, for just a few minutes, he was able to sneak around, lay hands on his confiscated cell phone, and send out a few provocative tweets. His minders soon snatched the phone out of his hands, which coincided with the very moment when Twitter banned him for life.

Poor old Trump knew his ability to contact the outside world and his angry followers was gone. He went ballistic and regressed to the emotional state of a toddler on one unending tantrum. He was clearly out of his mind and crazy.  Several staff members and two Secret Service agents were required to wrestle him to the floor and calm him down by feeding him small chunks of Limburger cheese.* They soon calmed him just enough to lift him up and set him in a dining room chair. That was when they all realized the only way to protect Trump from himself and protect themselves was to handcuff him, tie him with rope to the dining room chair, and bind his mouth with a red bandana to shut down his unending stream of profanity and stop his incessant “stream of consciousness” talk about how the American people had failed him.

Rather than untie him often, they have been spoon feeding him with healthy food, which he just happens to despise. The White House medical doctor has outfitted him with a urinary catheter to prevent frequent trips to the restroom. Unfortunately, they still have to untie him and take him to the restroom to defecate. Trump fights and claws at them all the way to the restroom and all the way back to his dining room chair. He claims “that damned chair makes my ass hurt.”

The staff has concluded it is unsafe to keep Trump at the White House much longer. They need to get him out of town and far away from official Washington, D.C. to make it easier to manage him. They plan to do this under the cover of an official presidential visit to the Southern Border to celebrate completion of 400 miles of the Southern Border wall. This is scheduled to occur on Tuesday of this week.

For all practical purposes, the staff realize Trump has gone insane and invoking the 25th Amendment is politically impossible in the time available. Therefore, Trump exists primarily as a hostage under house arrest, and he will stay in this condition until Joe Biden and Kamala Harris take their oaths of office at noon on January 20th.

President Trump no longer governs the nation because he is deemed clearly unfit to do so. Unable to invoke the 25th Amendment, Vice President Pence is functioning informally as the new President of the United States——but without the official oath and title. Behind closed doors, the early 20th century actions of Edith B. Wilson are cited as the historical precedent for Pence’s governing actions. When President Woodrow Wilson suffered a largely debilitating stroke while in office, his wife functioned informally as President of the United States in many ways and helped to rehabilitate her husband while on the job. This is why Edith B. Wilson is sometimes referred to as the “First Female President of the United States” during informal historical conversations.

Would you like to play this imaginative game? If so, please click on Comments, engage your imagination, and write a few paragraphs of your own to express where you think Trump is located now and what his circumstances are.

“Elizabeth from Knoxville” on FBI Radar Now

by Charles S. Oaxpatu

You may read the complete news story by clicking on the safe link below——and when you get there——be sure to watch the salient internal video link playing automatically in the far lower right corner of the news story:

Tracking Down “Elizabeth from Knoxville”

I hope “Elizabeth from Knoxville” knows that telling lies to FBI agents during an interrogation is a federal crime all by itself. She can get extra prison time for doing that above and beyond the 20 years in prison she might get for acts of sedition against the United States. I hope she also knows that the federal prison system, unlike state prison systems, does not have a parole system. If a person gets sent up for 20 years in a federal prison, they are going to stay there for the full 20 years——minus a little time off for good behavior behind bars.

Please do not try to run “Elizabeth from Knoxville.” The FBI always gets its woman. The best thing you can do is quietly and peacefully surrender yourself to the FBI Field Office in Knoxville, Tennessee, tomorrow morning. Doing that might result in some leniency by the U.S. District Court.
