I am very surprised that Marc Thiesses feels this way. How about you?

‘Terminate’ the Constitution? Trump is spinning out of control
 

One of Donald Trump’s greatest achievements in office was his remaking of the American judiciary with the appointment of three outstanding Supreme Court justices and hundreds of lower court judges who defend the Constitution from the federal bench each day.

But now, with just a few bizarre social media posts, Trump has repudiated that entire legacy.

After the Supreme Court two weeks ago unanimously rejected his request to stop a congressional committee from obtaining his tax returns, Trump blasted the court, using the language of the left-wing critics who question the legitimacy of his judicial appointments. “The Supreme Court has lost its honor, prestige, and standing, & has become nothing more than a political body, with our Country paying the price. … Shame on them!” Trump declared on his Truth Social account – oblivious to the fact that these words could just as easily have been uttered by Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) or outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). If anything, the court’s actions in this case – and the refusal of any Trump judges or justices to embrace his election denial conspiracy theories – prove precisely the opposite: He appointed jurists whose only loyalty is to our laws and our Constitution.

But apparently, loyalty to our laws and our Constitution is not the standard Trump seeks to uphold. Quite the opposite. In a rant without precedent in the annals of presidential rhetoric, Trump called for the “termination” of the Constitution. “A massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution,” he thundered, adding, “Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!”

This is many things, but it’s not conservatism. Respect for the Constitution and its original meaning is the bedrock of the modern conservative movement – so fundamental that House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) announced that Republicans will read every word of the Constitution out loud on the floor of the chamber when they take control in January. For someone seeking the Republican presidential nomination to call for the Constitution’s termination is nothing short of heresy. With his latest missive, Trump has embraced a form of secular sedevacantism – the erroneous belief held by some extreme traditionalist Catholics that there is currently no valid pope – arguing that Joe Biden is an illegitimate “anti-president” and that he, Trump, should either be reinstalled in office or a new election should be called. (How this would be accomplished, he does not say.) I’m sorry, but this is bat-guano crazy. It should be rejected and repudiated by every self-respecting conservative.

It’s time for Trump supporters to acknowledge a sad but undeniable truth: Trump is spinning out of control. Yes, his presidency was filled with historic accomplishments, and he was treated unfairly by his critics in Congress and the media. But since the election, something has snapped. He has descended into a spiral of conspiracy theories and personal grievances. He has surrounded himself with the political dregs. Trump blasts the Supreme Court justices he appointed because they will not do his bidding from the bench. And now, in calling for the termination of the Constitution and his reappointment to the presidency, he’s apparently lost touch with reality.

Fellow conservatives, it’s time to move on – because Trump is unstable, and because he cannot win. With his behavior since losing office, Trump has made himself irreversibly toxic to swing voters. A new Marquette Law School national poll finds that his unfavorable rating has surged to 66 percent – with about one-third of Republicans and independents now viewing him negatively.

The question is: Can Trump supporters see what Trump can’t? Democrats have now won three elections running against Trump. Will the GOP let them do it a fourth time? Republicans have a plethora of outstanding leaders who could step in and lead the conservative movement to victory in 2024. Trump is not one of them.

If Republicans nominate this man, they will lose – and they will deserve to.

    Look at the source…..

    The Huff-Puff-ington Post……about as unbiased as The Atlantic.

    Trump never called for the suspension of the Constitution.
    He clumsily worded a statement that the Constitution had been violated by those in power.
    (Without actually saying “the government violated the Constitution by silencing his free speech rights”
    .
    The problem was that Trump knew that his primary tool of reaching the general public, namely Twitter, hsd been taken away from him, but Trump did not have the smoking gun connection of actually who had done the deed.

      Dec 12, 2022 12:37 PM

      Marc is actually vrery conservative. I have been reading his material for a long time.

    Dec 12, 2022 12:55 PM

    I WOULD NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING THE >>>>>>>WASHINGTON POST WRITES……….
    Bezo brain……is a traitor to the WE THE PEOPLE……….

      Dec 12, 2022 12:38 PM

      Thiessen is an exception and the token conservative at the Post.

        Dec 12, 2022 12:18 PM

        Hummm…………….. I am going with what Chartster said below…………

    Dec 12, 2022 12:31 PM

    The thought of terminating the Constitution is about as offensive as one can get to believers in the rule of law. The people reporting on this subject outside of its full context are trying to get conservatives to emotionally reject Trump. But considering the suspension of the 1st Amendment for Covid, the fraud and close to outright treason by operators of the deep state and elected politicians, Trump’s thought of suspending various rules “even those found in the Constitution” is not beyond reasonable, especially for Trump with his harsh personality. If the Left can toss out free speach which is a guaranteed right, let’s at least openly discuss what needs to be done to correct the corruption in our government.
    By the way, i think Trump’s tax returns are fair game for Congress to review.

      Downey makes an interesting point, don’t you think?

        Dec 12, 2022 12:55 PM

        Downey did give the subject fair coverage.

        But before punishing Trump for his inappropriate statement, when are we going to investigate, indict, try, and punish those who actually suspended the Constitution under cover of the covid pandemic? Not to mention those involved in election fraud: 2020, 2022, and 2024 yet to come.
        Brunson v. Adams may be one of the last chances to save our current Constitutional Republic.

    Dec 12, 2022 12:39 PM

    Under a state of emergency is when certain parts of the constitution get suspended.
    Look at the code of military justice and Trumps executive orders. We ARE in a state of emergency! ..DUH…!
    By the way, for the SLEEPY HEADS out there..!
    The constitution has not been upheld by congress since the act of 1871 ! Wake the F up!

    This was a hit piece by a controlled opposition RINO scum bag! Period!

      Dec 12, 2022 12:27 PM

      DITTO………..Chartster on the Act of 1871……….. goes to show how asleep the sheeple have become….
      I have become a daily reader of Anna Von Reitz…..

        Dec 12, 2022 12:39 PM

        I would love to hear a conversation or debate with Anna and David Straight. That would be an amazing conversation.
        Perhaps I should line that up?🤔

        The Supreme Court case that the main stream media and KER is avoiding (because they don’t want attention to it, because it needs to get traction, because it changes the world) will be the biggest thing since the act of 1871 , but reverse.

        I’m going to tee the ball up for ya.

        The military has done a sting in the 2020 election. They have all of the criminal info.
        The Supreme Court knows this.
        Many in congress have broken their oath to the constitution and committed seditious treason. So have many in the media.
        The Supreme Court wants to stay out of GITMO and do their job, as directed by the constitution.

        The court overturned Roe v Wade.
        They righted a wrong.
        They gave it back to the states.

        The court ruled that people can carry a gun in New York. They went back to the constitution.
        This means: everyone in every state can petition their state government that they can carry a gun. Or the government official has to be removed.

        The court ruled that the EPA has no rights over the people of West Virginia. That means “every agency has no rights over you”. Get it?
        The agency’s are corporations, they don’t make law or rule over you!
        Example: the SEC, FED, CDC, BLM and all, are just corporations.

        The Supreme Court just gave the American people that freedom!
        The case with Brunson vs Adams is:
        The Supreme Court giving you “the right to petition for redress of grievances”!
        Giving “we the people” the right to petition.
        (Which no one reading this post has EVER had in their lifetime)
        It’s part of your 1st amendment that has never been upheld.

        The Supreme Court held accountable by the military will bring back the republic.

          Dec 12, 2022 12:23 PM

          Great Outline…………..
          David Straight is traveling around the country teaching people like you and me how to defend ourselves and our families against unconstitutional actions brought against us.

          In this episode you’ll learn that the BAR association is not what we’ve been told it is. You’ll learn how the law we’re being held to is maritime law and not common law as God intended. You’ll learn how we’re just chattel to the globalists and that using our birth certificates we’re literally traded trade our birth certificates

    I do not speak any Chinese.
    This makes it difficult to follow FIRST-HAND Chinese news sources.
    I have noticed increaingly anti-American and anti-Japanese sentiment becoming prevelent in China.

    This, it seems to me, a common deliberate behavor before war.
    Such was the case in the U.S. in the early 1940s, almost deliberately provoking Japan into war.

    This is China’s Dec 7, occurring on Dec 13.

      HE IS A TRAITOR.

    Bankman Fried is arrested in the Bahamas.

    He is the fraudster that was laundering dirty money out of Ukraine for the Democrats while swindling thousands of Americans Billions of dollars via the crypto FTX.
    The sealed indictment will be opened tomorrow with the filing of extradition proceedings to bring him over to the Southern District of New York.

    (I would not issue a life insurance policy for this thief.)

    He will be held in the Metropolitan Correctional Facility.
    (Wonder if he’ll get Jeffrey Epstein’s old cell)

      Dec 13, 2022 13:04 AM

      SEA LAW………. Wake up.
      BIDEN is the Corporation HEAD CEO……. the USgovt( which you think you belong) has been taken over for over 100 Years… You are not members of the Corporation…except you are chattel with a number.
      The sheeple have been hoodwinked, and do not even know the CONSTITUTION of the founding Fathers…
      NO ONE , except Evil has voted for BIDEN the leader of Satanic behavior………. The freaks in the Corporate Cabinet of ding dongs……. was not chosen by the Sheeple, you did not give your consent to this arrangement…… if, you think you voted, and like the arrangement, you are part to the evil.

      Satan lovers of this world.
      GOD……….. does not approve of this arrangement………. PERIOD.

      Revelation 3:9
      Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews,….
      …… humm
      think that might apply to the TREASURY and FEDERAL RESERVE……..consisting of FAKES.
      You sheeple hang on every word of a FAKE SYSTEM putting you in bondage of DEBT daily
      and you go along with the sham.

      Dec 13, 2022 13:33 AM

      Did you know that it is against Christian doctrine to loan money at interest?

      The Followers of Yeshuah are supposed to lend freely and give to all who ask out of need; similarly, the Jews living under the provisions of the Old Testament are not supposed to charge usury to other Jews, but can charge usury when they lend to non-Jews.

      It is this little bit of religious difference which has led to Jews being a predominant force in the business of banking.

      ONE BIG PROBLEM…………….. “there is neither Jew norGreek(gentile) ” in this dispensation….

        Contradictions in the bibles cause almost countless denominations.

        I gotta wonder why they wernt written clearly to begin with.

        I guess ya can write that off to translations etc.

          Dec 13, 2022 13:39 AM

          “Contradictions in the bibles cause almost countless denominations……..”
          “contradictions”……. there is only one truth at this time.

          The bible is real clear… if, you know how to **rightly divide** the scriptures, I have pointed this out countless times.
          Contradictions arise, from the lack of knowledge… in translation from the original languages at the time.
          Modern man is lacking in knowledge in Greek and Latin and Hebrew….
          The schools have almost deleted courses in Greek and Latin…in the American Universities….

          Thanks for the comment……….. hope that helps.

            Dec 13, 2022 13:39 PM

            You make my point Jerry……”if, you know how to **rightly divide** ”

            All the dif denominations believe they have the “rightly divide”.

            No issues, just mentioned the contradiction.

            Biggest condratiction in my opinion is obey me or You are tortured for eternity but I love you.

            The no usury unless its greeks but there are no greeks or jew is kind of a minor one.

            I do wonder why they said greeks, (probly obvious) (greek has a meaning other than being from greece?)and no mention of n or s americans, asians sub sahara african etc
            I forget, was there any mention of India? or was that from other books I read concerning jesus, my memory is Kaputsnik.

            Dec 13, 2022 13:10 PM

            I can see where you are confused………. on” rightly divide” , the word of truth.
            Rightly divide is only used in the NEW TESTAMENT not the OLD Testament.

            The bible is very clear……. if, you know how to “rightly divide”… Rightly divide , means,
            in this dispensation of time TODAY, see .2 Timothy New Testament….. You are not under the LAW of the Jews.as in the OLD TESTAMENT.
            RIGHTLY DIVIDE…..helps… tell the individual what doctrine, applies to this time period…AGE OF GRACE…
            If, you want to just apply the OLD TESTAMENT, you will be subject to the LAW thinking…which is not of this TIME PERIOD… If, you do not know what time period you are in , which some christian do not have a clue, ….then you have disagreements.
            live under the law of the OLD TESTAMENT you fail to see the Grace of the NEW TESTAMENT
            Not all the bible is written “to'” the GENTILE,…but is profitable ,
            If ..you know the history in the OLD TESTament and what was foretold (prophecy by the prophets)
            In the OLD TESTament , the you can apply ,,,WHY you are not UNDER THE LAW, …for no man could and can satisfy the LAW of the Old Testament….(wonder why it is called OLD)

            Now if, you want to be confused., in the message……. Trying to apply Matthew, Mark, Luke and John to the mix…… which is mostly talking to the Jews…….

            Dec 13, 2022 13:26 PM

            Next………….
            Biggest condratiction in my opinion is obey me or You are tortured for eternity but I love you.

            The contradiction……..
            “:Obey me”……….. today., that would be BELIEVE in ME……… under the age of GRACE,…God knew and knows everyone is a SINNER,… Your sins have been forgiven,…if , you choose to BELIEVE on the death burial and resurrection…
            You are not tortured,…except if, you fail to accept JESUS CHRIST as your savior…. does not cost you a dime…… God sent Jesus…… to DIE for YOUR sins, so, you do not have to die and be tortured…..
            The “but I love you”…… Jesus was God in the FLESH….and Died on the CROSS… so, he did LOVE YOU….
            This coming . .., it was FORETOLD in the OLD TESTAMENT. , that the King of the Jews would be coming….. problem… the JEWS rejected Jesus,
            and that is OK, because we now have GRACE to save you from sins………The Blood of Jesus paid the price…… This was done for EVERYONE……JEW AND GENTILE for those who Believe.

            God rejects only those who reject him……… in the end…God does not want to reject anyone at this time

            Dec 13, 2022 13:38 PM

            thx for the response Jerry.

            Dec 13, 2022 13:42 PM

            Next……….
            I do wonder why they said greeks, (probly obvious) (greek has a meaning other than being from greece?)and no mention of n or s americans,

            Paul’s writings are in Greek….he was told to go .. to the Gentiles which were Greeks….
            “go to the gentiles”…….
            Paul writes his letter to the Gentiles….. in the dispensation of GRACE…..
            Paul/Saul(jewish)…….. was selected by Jesus , see Acts 9, to go to the GENTILES
            Jesus was using Paul,/Saul …because Saul a Jew, was persecuting the christians at the time, after the death , burial and resurrection…
            Saul was a Jewish leader at the time.
            You have to understand ,…. going from the Old Testament to the New Testament , requires a transition period……..which is where the Old Testament, then the writings of Matthew , Mark, Luke and John….. to the writings of Paul, in the mystery of Grace….
            This is where the……….. RIGHTLY DIVIDING comes in……..

            Dec 13, 2022 13:48 PM

            yeh it does, Jerry

      Bankman-Fried….The bankman fried his customers…just like Madoff made off with all the money…

      Can’t our rulers and their minions come up with better names for their fraudsters???? Those names couldn’t be more in your face. THEY are laughing at you!

        Dec 13, 2022 13:03 AM

        Bankman-Fried….The bankman fried his customers…just like Madoff made off with all the money…
        GR8 Catch, Ebolan.
        I bet Berny made off with a body double or left the clone behind to hold the bag.
        Meanwhile the bankers look the other way and say, “we had no clue this was happening”.

        Bank man-Fried filed in every state to do business. The SEC and all the regulatory agencies ( which are corporations ) ALL KNEW it was a scam and money laundering operation from the start!

          Dec 13, 2022 13:31 AM

          The figure-head was arrested, but not his cohorts

          Is Bankman Fried just fall guy ?
