This is the LEAST of Donald J. Trump's crimes:

Donald J. Trump flouts the law and gets away with doing it. Unlike you and me, he places himself above the law. And yet, his deplorable supporters continue to worship this unworthy, shameless, malignant narcissist. :

 "On April 21, an Instagram user posted a photo of the seal at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida. The picture shows a circular, blue-and-silver marker set in closely cropped grass, and an accompanying caption reads: “45th President 45 yards from hole on 18.” 

 It is against the law to use the presidential seal in a way that could convey the impression of government approval or sponsorship of private-sector businesses. The West Palm Beach golf club is the fourth Trump property to feature the seal in possible violation of the statute, following a trend set at courses in the Bronx, New Jersey and Jupiter, Florida. Violations of the law can result in prison sentences of up to six months, although prosecutors have never prioritized charging people who misuse the seal. 


Cheney: "As you will see, Representative [Scott] Perry contacted the White House in the weeks after January 6th to seek a presidential pardon. Multiple other Republican congressmen also sought presidential pardons for their roles in attempting to overturn the 2020 election."

The question is who are these "Multiple other Republican congressmen?" Who are these congressmen/women who worked to stop the Constitutional process of certifying the electoral college? Seeking a pardon from POTUS -- DJT -- indicates they KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING WAS ILLEGAL. 

Once upon a time there were consequences for politicians in high places who broke the law:

And what will happen to the wife of a Supreme Court Justice who was involved with the overthrow of the U.S. government?

"It strains credulity to the point of breaking if Justice Thomas claims that he had no idea what his “best friend” Ginni was up to when she was allegedly fomenting a violent insurrection." -

And remember this:

Josh Marshall
Today is a good day to remember that Republicans have said repeatedly via Axios and other publications that their top priority in the next Congress will be retaliating and seeking "revenge" against Democrats for the decision to investigate the Jan 6 insurrection/riots.

Trump and his criminal pals in Congress DO NOT want America to know the truth about the Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How of the January 6 plot to overturn a free and fair election and illegally install Trump for a second term.

They are all complicit. They would not want to end this inquiry if they were innocent. 

They're not.

The following quote by Carl Sagan applies to Trump followers and defenders. We here at P.E. often read Trumpulican bloggers' posts. They still support and defend Trump, knowing full well how often he's broken the law. The quote by Sagan applies to those bloggers.

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” ― Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

They're telling us accept Biden as the president and saying that the only way to “Unite” the country is
to pretend that Joe Biden won the election, and didn’t steal the election.
Are they kidding?
.After 4 years of these liberals, progressives saying that Trump wasn't your president, all of the sudden you need validation from us Republican's on Biden?
I told you people to be careful of what you wish for, and of what people were doing to President Trump, and you laughed, ignored, mocked, and continued your hissy fits, and your disgusting insults ....Now, it's your turn and you start whining at every thing thrown at Mr.Xbiden.
Get this through your immature heads, we will never TAKE A KNEE, we will never accept this Stolen Election, we will never accept anything that that Deranged, and Confused man says, and the quicker you realize that the better off you'll be, even though I know damn well that progressive liberals can dish it, but screech like weenies when it comes to taking it.

Your little "screech" indicates that you've been thoroughly bamboozled.

Thanks for proving Sagan correct.

Enjoy the hearings!

Shaw Kenawe said...

: Members of the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol said they have gathered enough evidence for the Justice Department to indict Donald Trump for attempting to overturn the results if the 2020 election.

Dave Miller said...

Anon... can you provide a shred of proof that Biden stole the election?

Because if you can, you'll be better than 50 state Attys General, the US Atty General, the Trump Admin which said this was the "most secure in American history", 50 state election officials, 50 sitting US Governors, President Trump's daughter, more than 60 US courts and countless state, local and private recounts.

You see, this is the problem for you and others like you. The evidence is overwhelming that you are wrong. And as such, absent any new evidence you might have, your repeated statements to the contrary and those of your friends, no matter how forceful, will not change that reality.

So why do you and the other election deniers who propagate the "Big Lie" continue with this charade? All we can surmise is that you are choosing to be willfully ignorant, or purposefully are acting to foment dissent and subvert the will of the American people and Constitution of the United States.

Anonymous at 7:54 really makes me laugh, seriously! Even though Hillary had over 3 million more votes than TFG, it was a gut punch that TFG won by the electoral college. Yet we accepted it. Did people, including myself say "trump is not my president"? Yes. But do you know what we meant? We meant that he did not represent us. He was and is an amoral bully with no sense of decency or compassion for anyone let alone anyone who dares to disagree with him. He threatened to hold cities or states hostage for federal funds after natural disasters that killed and made many Americans homeless, JUST BECAUSE THE STATE OR CITY HAD AN ELECTED DEMOCRAT!!! How batshit crazy is that? Making you distrust anything that did not come out of his piehole or twitter account. Saying he is SO damn rich on one hand, then on the other hand pleads for millions of dollars (and schmucks like you actually gave him) so he can go on a "woe is me" tour!

Let me ask you -- Did Hillary ask for funds to fight the "stolen election"? Did Hillary go on a "woe is me, look how mean everyone is to me" tour? Did Hillary's attorneys file over 60 lawsuits to overturn the election? Did Hillary try to intimidate state election officials? Did Hillary send a not so veiled message to white supremacists telling them to stand back and stand by? Then telling her minions to come to DC and say "it will be wild"?

You say you will never accept the "stolen election". Can you put aside your ramblings and give some legitimate details on how it was stolen? I'm sure Bill Barr, and many others would LOVE to see it - HA!

Dave Miller said...

Anon... we should also add that the entire VP Pence legal team on January 1 saw all of the "evidence" the Trump team had regarding the alleged fraud of the 2020 election.

They found nothing and put those findings in memos to the Trump campaign, fully refuting the idea that the election was stolen.

Then on January 5 they provided a series of legal findings and opinions showing that not only was the idea that VP Pence could refuse to certify the electoral college votes on Jan 6, but that doing so would be illegal.

Facts can be so stubborn, can't they?

Mike said...

So many criminals, not enough convictions.

Dave Miller said...

Anon... check this out from the top lawyer on the Reelect Donald Trump Campaign...

The question was whether “…fraud, maladministration, abuse or irregularities if aggregated and read most favorably to the [Trump] campaign would that be outcome determinate? Everyone on the Trump Campaign staff believed that it was not sufficient to be “outcome determinate.”

In plain English for you, the campaign lawyers, staff and the president's daughter, were asked if there was any fraud that would have changed the results of the 2020 election. And they all said no.

We will keep waiting for the evidence you have that contradicts even the Trump Campaign...

Dave Miller said...

Possum... there will be no evidence forthcoming, because there is none. And that fact is part of the GOP narrative. Lack of evidence is proof of how well the Dems cheat. Of course there is no evidence. The Dems cover it up.

Read their blogs.

You'll see that and more... stuff like "I don't need evidence, I know it's true." How do you argue with that?

Les Carpenter said...

People with their fingers in their ears, (unless it's tRump speaking), blinders over their eyes, (unless it's tRump speaking), and evil in their hearts are apparently being represented online bu anon @7:54 AM.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Possumlady to Anon@7:54 AM: "Can you put aside your ramblings and give some legitimate details on how it was stolen?"

Anon@7:54AM cannot because there is none. All people like Anon@7:54AM can do is run around to liberal blogs and post their baseless nonsense. And this is because they're in a cult which compels them to leave their rational brain (if they even have one) elsewhere.

There is no evidence that the 2020 election was stolen. Trump pushed the Big Lie, and people like Anon swallowed it.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Dave, you and I know the blogs mentioned here and their devotion to Trump.

I know you're welcome there to post your opinions. But what is puzzling is their allegiance to a man like Trump. One of those bloggers is a teacher! What can be said of someone who has the responsibility of education our young and yet believes the lies of a con man? I'm always aghast at the fact that folks like her influence young minds and yet she can't see through Trump's lies and treachery! Someone did say that a cultist doesn't know he/she is in a cult. That may explain it.

The other blog -- the Mother Ship -- is just a lost cause. Happily, they just talk among themselves and have no influence, except their votes, which is bad enough.

Today's hearing was devastating for Trump. His people -- his hand-picked staff, even his family -- knew he lost the election and told him so, but Trump ran with the Big Lie. And we found out he conned his cult into giving him money which he then used for everything except investigating the vote (which his fundraising letters stated they were for). A true Con Man conning the gullible. And still is to this day.

Les Carpenter said...

tRump is the orange poster boy for Pathological Liars. Hell, he's the Chairman of the Board so to speak.

Ray said...

The Cultists are kissing Trump's arse again! LOL!


What makes me laugh is Cheney’s opening statements telling everyone what will be happening …Who DOES that? It’s almost like she wanted to do this just for the pure joy!.

Honestly, it kind of makes me laugh when I watch a few minutes here and there!!! They’ve clearly been told to LOOK SOBER, LOOK VERY UPSET AND KEEP SAYING EVERYONE KNEW THE CLAIMS WERE FALSE.

They have show and read from text saying things like Trump TOLD THE PEOPLE TO GO UP THERE….but they leave off the part about “GO PEACEFULLY”, etc.

It would GREATLY help if Trump kept quiet on his TRUTH site, he’s adding to the mockery…..
SO SO many things he could say that would go over well. But, NOT HIM. He just can’t control himself.

Ray said...


KID IS RIGHT “Put Trump back in.” ALthough he has become a tad unhinged lately,…my opinion. I’d STILL want him back….ASAP!

yeah. When your in cult you don't know you're in a cult! Trump's unhinged, but she'd vote for a lying pile of shyte ASAP! That blog and the hostess are what's wrong with America. without her and her buds, trump would have no power. People like her keep him around like a pile of rotten garbage and I have no idea why.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Yes, Ray. They're blinded by Trump's cons.

This is from one of Trump's Chief of Staff:

Mick Mulvaney
Trump's inner circle at the end was...Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Lin Wood, Peter Navarro...

Garbage in. Garbage out.

Not all Republicans are daft.

"Even though Hillary had over 3 million more votes than TFG, it was a gut punch that TFG won by the electoral college. Yet we accepted it."
We accept it because it is Constitutional law. We are a law-abiding people even if some of our leaders are not.
We have a process to amend/change the Constitution and that is a legal, legitimate process. That is the way we correct the Constitutional laws that no longer fit our current society or fix the mistakes of the founding fathers like slavery. If the Constitution is followed there is no basis to cry foul, or claim the results are illegal.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Former Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue told Trump multiple times that there was no evidence to support Trump's claims of election fraud.

Anonymous said...

They sent Trump money to fight ‘fraud’ and he stole it.

He told them he would walk to the Capitol with them, then slinked away.

When they were arrested, he didn’t pardon them.

He hasn’t contributed a penny to their families or legal defense.

And they love him more.


Shaw Kenawe said...

"The committee is clearly looking at the degree to which Trump’s claims of a stolen election became a fundraising vehicle for people who believed he was doing something with their donations related to the election. Instead, the committee is laying out how much was spent on Trump-aligned properties or entities."

How Con Manish of Trump! But the people who need to see this won't. They'll continue in their ignorant bubble to save themselves the embarrassment of learning how easily they were hoodwinked and defrauded by America's greatest Con Man, DJT. One of them even wants him back in the presidency, proving that no matter how much evidence and truth are shown to his cultists, they will not abandon him. It is a sickness that encompasses more than worshipping Trump. IMO, their unreasonable attachment to someone as corrupt as Trump is evidence of something like a big, empty hole in themselves that they're using Trump to fill.
