Here's [Click] a better copy of the 12 common signs of a guilty person, listener. So now that we have a reasonable basis to suspect that DT is guilty (and knows it), the question becomes: WHAT is he guilty of? Given the crazy lengths to which they are going to avoid coming clean, one would assume it could be a doozy. Treason, spying and sedition come to mind. Actually, the definition of sedition is rather interesting: 1. The raising of commotion in a state, not amounting to insurrection; conduct tending to treason, but without an overt act; excitement of discontent against the government, or of resistance to lawful authority. [1913 Webster]Has Trump not done this?--Alan
Absolutely! Numerous times, in public and on international media. There's no way of covering that up.
Here's Webster (1913) on treason (emphasis added): 1. The offense of attempting to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance, or of betraying the state into the hands of a foreign power; disloyalty; treachery. [1913 Webster] The treason of the murthering in the bed. --Chaucer. [1913 Webster] Note: In monarchies, the killing of the sovereign, or an attempt to take his life, is treason. In England, to imagine or compass the death of the king, or of the queen consort, or of the heir apparent to the crown, is high treason, as are many other offenses created by statute. In the United States, treason is confined to the actual levying of war against the United States, or to an adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. [1913 Webster]================If he's in that deep and knows it, why doesn't he flee?--Alan
That presupposes a( He understands what treason is; b) He recognizes any of his actions as fitting the definition and c) He cares.
To prove sedition you'd just have to screen news footage of him from the past year and a half of so. Treason might be a bit harder, but not much. And then there's the remuneration clause in the Constitution, another cinch to prove because, again, the evidence is all out there, impossible for anyone to cover up.I guess the question is, does any of this rise to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors? One would certainly think so, but then we aren't congresscritters. Their brains are so primitive, they don't perceive reality the same way as higher life forms. They clearly don't as of now recognize that he's done anything impeachable. I for one don't know what he'd have to do to make them see that he constitutes a danger to the country in himself while the profound disarray of the government at the moment poses a grave threat, leaving us as it does vulnerable to any kind of terrorist attack or act of war.
A few months ago I read Asimov on Astronomy and Asimov on Physics for the first time and enjoyed them. Having just finished rereading both, I've embarked upon Asimov on Chemistry. In Chapter Three and, mirabile dictu, so far it's actually making sense! He makes it all seem like a story; not just the history, who discovered what when, and how that meshes with other previous and subsequent discoveries, but the science itself. He makes it interesting and exciting and, most of all, logical and understandable. Of course, I already had some faint grasp of Physics and Astronomy. Chemistry is completely foreign to me. I reckon it's something of a miracle he didn't totally lose me a paragraph into Chapter One. *wry grin*. This first part is on inorganic chemistry. I'll let you guys know how far the good doctor can lead me before my brain explodes. :D
I see there are two or three minor typographical errors. Sorry about that.--Alan
Pox--Blogger ate my post to which the note about typos refers; probably too long, and I didn't keep a copy. I copied the preface to an 1884 book about chemistry based on the non-metals intended for the general reader. I have a number of old descriptive chemistry textbooks that have a great deal of pedagogic value. Chemistry isn't my native country, but I was naturalized at an early age.--Alan

Guilty? Oh, yeah. It's his personality type. The I'm Not Worthy Kid. And never will be worthy. Pretty sure his dad made sure of that sixty odd years ago. Nothing he ever did was worthy, could earn his dad's admiration, or even acceptance. So he looks to his mirror and lies to himself about what he sees there. And has to keep running and lying, or it all just comes apart in the hand like wet toilet paper. I think he's pretty near total melt down.
I agree that he is pretty near total meltdown, puddle. And there are probably at least thirty million people happy to help him on the rest of the way. Interesting idea about the origin; but I reman partial to toxoplasmosis, even if it is less probable. Hmmmm...why am I reminded of the scene [Click] in The Wizard of Oz where Dorothy accidentally splashes some water on the Wicked Witch of the West? Someone ought to do a parody of it with Trump. Hmmm....betcha there's a parody of Der Untergang, or will be soon.--Alan
I was going to say pretty much what puddle said. If DT's 12 steps of GUILT were new in the last couple of years, then sure, it's related to something like Russia. But if that was present 10 years ago, then it's at very least the way he was brought up to be.What concerns me even more than his demeanor is his hidden tax returns.
