  1. @Troy I don't know about popularity, but he isn't the first of his kind to emerge from the depths of humanity's worse.
  2. Yes, Brother, the precedence you rely on has been the way matters have gone but those days are over. Again, it's isn't law, swift or slow that's being applied to the American system of government. Think, if you will what drove, motivated, and compelled the early colonists before the American system, was it the Magna Carta? this the social psychological/anthropological conditions I'm alluding to. SURE, as the Brother said, we are probably witnessing a 'geopolitical shift the likes of the Roman empire. Matters are not what they used to be, Brother, What I'm really afraid of is, America isn't prepared, nor have a workable system in place to deal with what's already here, or coming. I didn't know Brother Del was outside the US. No matter though, I think you're unfound reliance on this idea of 'justice' has expanded your imagination to an unhealthy level. There was never such a thing as American Justice, the system you rely on has always been an equitable system of State power, to control the masses, a system that even the Party even the Democratic Party is attempting to move away from, even as we comment here.
  3. @Troy: Brother, I'm not ignoring anything, as anything is possible. But the likelihood of due process and precedence of past legislative impeachment events is out-of-character for today's politics; doesn't have the teeth to do what I predict within the time I anticipate, is all I'm saying. That, coupled with how matters have transpired (without precedence) since DT was sworn in as President, including the unprecedented way he was elected allows room to believe unconstitutional and unprecedented events is the new norm - to get DT out of the oval office. You, me, and all of our powerless peers are the only ones who follow the law these days.
  4. No, just the opposite of using history, the Constitution, laws, etc. I support my argument with social psychology and social anthropology contrasted with legislative precedence.
  5. Thank you, Brother, and you're welcome. Me, I'll wager twice that much DT's presidency won't last to the New Year!
  6. @Troy Are you sure about that? Notwithstanding 'stare decisis' prescribed for Congressional ordinances, precedence has little bearing on what Congress may, or may not do next. As I've pointed out, matters and options have dramatically changed for the GOP since DT was elected; from hopefulness for the success of their agenda to the now, near total discouragement that their party will even exist, thanks to DT. Do you really believe those White boys won't try to get ahead of the 'DT curve' before midterms, or soon thereafter, in spite of the Constitution dictates? Furthermore, Brother Del raised a point I've not considered for several months now, DT's tax returns, once made public is going to push GOP to enact impeachment immediately; because the base they rely on is going to be so pissed off that the billions DT claim he has is nothing more than paper and BS. In fact, their base is the only hope they have left, once that's threatened, it only a matter of days. I believe anyhow!
  7. @Troy: No, Brother, and I don't believe neither one of us has EVER accused you of believing DT was innocent. That's beside the point, and still evading the question at hand: "what law, procedure, or methods can you describe that'll prevent DT's removal before the expiration of our wager?" I personally believe that between next weeks' Kavanaugh vote and the midterms (less than 50-days from now) GOP is going to resurrect what sense's they have left and start some real shit; realizing that the threat to GOP continued control of Congress is all because of DT's popularity, not political issues; that taking a stand against DT, getting rid of him is their only salvation, though it won't save them, too late for that. If not within between now and the midterms, then certainly after, once they've actually lost control of Congress. Out of sheer revenge, or the last-ditch effort for room to try something new - the GOP is going to start impeachment/indictment proceedings, and then it's a wrap for DT - before 12/31/2018. That's always been my argument here.
  8. @Troy Well, Brother I do believe Brother Del has just identified more than is needed to remove DT after impeachment; unless he resigns, assassinated, or lose the remainder of his mind. If not before, then definitely after midterms - no way he'll be president after 12/31/2018. YOUR TURN, what law, procedure, or methods can you describe that'll prevent DT's removal before expiration of our wager?
  9. @Troy: Okay, Brother, let's get in front of this: There are five (5) ‘major’ classes of presidential duties that involve, military; foreign affairs, administrative, legislative, and judicial. All, of which DT has shirked, abused or otherwise violated, in one way or another. While anyone can be cause for impeachment, judicial, administrative, and legislative is more than enough. The Constitution gives the House of Representatives the sole power to indict or bring impeachment proceedings, the Senate has the sole power to try impeachments. The Constitution also defines the crimes for which the president can be impeached. Although the Constitution limits the possible consequences of impeachment. Impeachment for political purposes was strictly prohibited. A person convicted by the Senate can only be removed from office [Hence, the punishment] and disqualified from holding "any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States." Impeachment does not activate the Fifth Amendment’s double jeopardy clause, however. This means that a person removed from office by impeachment can also face trial in other courts for crimes they have committed. Congress [does] have the power to remove from office, through impeachment, the president, vice president, members of the president's cabinet and civil officers such as judges. If the president is removed, the vice president immediately takes the oath of office and becomes the president. In all other cases, the president nominates a replacement and the Congress must approve that replacement. In the event the president and vice president are both impeached and removed from office, the speaker of the House of Representatives would assume the presidency. Popular belief has it that: One of the best ways to examine what happens after an impeachment conviction is to look at what has happened in past impeachment proceeding. As of 2018, no U.S. president has been impeached and convicted. In 1868, following the Civil War, President Andrew Johnson was impeached for "high crimes and misdemeanors" but was ultimately acquitted. In 1974 the House of Representatives passed articles of impeachment against President Richard Nixon for obstruction of justice, abuse of power and contempt of Congress. Nixon resigned though before impeachment proceedings could begin in the Senate. In 1999 President Bill Clinton was impeached for abuse of power, obstruction of justice and perjury, but he was acquitted of the charges. That fact punishment of removal from office has never happened before is not a law prohibiting removal. There you have the prescribed steps: 1st obtain an impeachment, 2nd remove the bastard from the oval office. And oh yeah, that's all by your 'savior' the law!!!
  10. Fair enough, but even that claim, of the possibility, was not supported; meaning you commented from the 'hip' with an empty gun. Or was consideration of U.S. Constitutional laws your base of contention, if so, how?
  11. I'll settle for your acknowledgment of saying it.
  12. Come on, Brother, you're too intelligent to believe that sort of deflection will work, on me! I not only answered your question with two question posed to you, which you're trying to avoid; by addressing Del's comments which you, obviously, can't deny. AND YES, you really did make the comment 45 would be reelected, without simply suggested it as a possibility. Do you make a habit of deciding before thinking?
  13. @Troy Brother Del's made some interesting points here - if he's right - you've based your insightful commentary on subjective reasoning; which is a flawed way of thinking; not well taken for someone who proclaims to be a firm believer in scientific theory.
  14. Two (2) questions in answer to your one question: 1. describe what's improved for Black folk in America, specifically (not in general terms)? Are you suggesting Black progress if any, thanks to lawsw have better served us than we ourselves?
  15. You're kidding me, right? Your generalization of how laws work and 'consent of the governed' is wanting; just gravy with no meat. Just because 90% of the people follow and obey laws of the land, while 10% are rogue does not make a system workable, fair, or even mean the majority have to obey them. Your savior in the law has overtaken more than your reasoning. And my questioning of the law does not make me a climate change denier or earther, coupling truth with negatives is a fool's argument. While I do concur with Del's timeline regarding the life of DT's presidency, I do not subscribe to his methods for obtaining information. Del's non-use of myths to devise his methods, however, is not of one who follows the leader. And that's commendable.
