The day after the Democrats won control of the House of Representatives, Trump abruptly fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions and appointed Matthew Whitaker, a Trump loyalist, to run the FBI and oversee the Trump-Russia investigation. That’s problematic.
Whitaker has echoed the President’s propaganda calling the Mueller investigation a “witch hunt”. He has made the Machiavellian suggestion that funds for Mueller’s investigation be cut off as a way to bring the investigation to a standstill without actually firing Mueller.
Ruth Marcus, a Washington Post editor, doesn’t mince words. The lead sentence in her editorial reads, “The acting attorney general of the United States is a crackpot.”
Whitaker, is a rather ridiculous choice. We are, after all, talking about a shamelessly partisan loyalist, with a strange, far-right worldview, and with close ties to a witness who’s testified in an ongoing federal investigation.
Whitaker has bashed the federal courts. He’s condemned an investigation he’s now overseeing – and won’t recuse himself from, despite calls from 18 state attorneys general. He’s already decided what the outcome of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe should be.
Complicating matters, Matthew Whitaker is the first attorney general – acting or permanent – to ever hold the position without having been confirmed to the Justice Department by the Senate. Many experts have made a very credible case that the president’s appointment of Whitaker is plainly illegal.
“The bottom line is unavoidable: this “crackpot” has no business overseeing the Justice Department of a global superpower.”
It appears that Trump put Whitaker in charge for the corrupt purposes of obstructing justice and avoid being impeached and tried for treason… among the long list of his other crimes.
Just a couple years back, Whitaker was involved a company called World Patent Marketing, a huge scam that ripped people off and then threatened them when they asked for their money back. The company was eventually shut down by the Federal Trade Commissions and fined nearly $26 million dollars. Whitaker personally lent his name and status as an ex-US attorney to World Patent Marketing touting such things a must-have time travel cryptocurrency and a toilet for the “well-endowed.”
Whitaker is a bit of a wacko. He doesn’t believe the United States should have a federal government.
Five years ago, Whitaker stated his view that the federal government has no authority over state governments, and that the states should be able to violate federal law at will. Now, as Acting Attorney General, he’s in charge of enforcing federal law in all fifty states… but will he enforce federal laws that conflict with state laws?
We can take some comfort in the hope that as soon as Trump is impeached and convicted of treason, his tenure as president will be declared illegitimate and every appointment, every executive order and every bill he has signed declared illegal and null starting with the removal of Acting Attorney General Mathew Whitaker and justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court.
To make matters much worse.
Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) says he is going to block a bill to protect Robert Mueller by not allowing it to come up for a vote in the Senate.
McConnell says. “It’s not necessary. The Mueller investigation is not under threat. The president’s said repeatedly he’s not going to dismiss the Mueller investigation. He’s said repeatedly it’s going to be allowed to finish.
McConnel said that also happens to be his view. As you can imagine, we speak frequently, and there’s never been any indication that the president wants to dismiss Mueller or the investigation. It’s going to be allowed to finish. McConnell is lying.
McConnell is lying. He knows that Trump is lying. In fact, everyone knows that Trump has every intention of quashing the investigation one way or another. Trump will do what he needs to do to end the Trump-Russia investigation because Trump is guilty. McConnell the rest of the Trump Republicans in Congress are co-conspirators willing to shield Trump’s treason with the Russians and let his crimes go unpunished… just to stay in power.
If Whitaker doesn’t recuse himself and has any involvement in Mueller’s probe, we will expose it, including whether he made any commitments to Trump, is serving as a back channel, or interfering in the probe.
He will be held accountable. There must be no ambiguity about that.
The Democrats won the House Representatives.
They will do what they can to protect the Mueller investigation and launch their own independent investigations. Democrats will probably proceed with the impeachment of President Trump at some point; however, they won’t be sworn in until January 3 of next year.
Trump is trying desperately to the end the Mueller investigation before Democrats take control of the House of Representatives because Trump is guilty and desperate.
Trump made Whitaker the acting AG to kill the investigation… one way or another. With Trump Republicans in control of Congress, Trump has for the past two years proved time and again that Republicans will not hold the president accountable no matter how egregious his crimes, which puts the president above the law.
This America people need a definitive answer to one question. Did Trump conspire with Putin to rig the election and are Republicans in Congress involved in the cover up?
We know the Russians launched a massive cyber-attack on our election process to help Trump win. We know the Trump campaign was in direct communication with the Russians. But did Trump himself conspire with Putin to rig the election in his favor? Is Trump a Russian asset controlled by Russian dictator Vladimir Putin? Is Trump sacrificing American interest to advance Russian interests. Is Trump giving aid and comfort to the enemy?
The future of America depends on knowing the full extent of the crimes Trump is guilty of, so that as a nation we can act accordingly. Trump must be brought to justice and his illegitimate presidency ended.
In the future, the checks and balances in our government must be strengthened so this can never happen again. We the People must have the National Recall. We must have the means to vote and recall public officials on the Federal level for just cause including and especially the President of the United States of America. The minute Trump obstructed justice by firing FBI director, James Comey to try and stop the Trump-Russia investigation and he refused to make his taxes public we should have had national recall election.
What can we do here and now to protect the Muller investigation?
Protesters across the country are out in great numbers carrying sings and shouting things like, “Ho, ho, hey, hey Mueller ain’t going away.”
But protesting in the streets is simply not enough.
A few fleeting headlines in the media are not enough. The way to stop Trump from shutting down the Mueller investigation is to actually shut down Bank of America.
The best way to protest is by taking advantage of smartphone technology. Using our smartphones to social network and to call in solidarity, we can bring enough protesters to phones to isolate Bank of America Merrill Lynch and disrupt their communications.
In America, we have a God-given, inalienable, Constitutional right to use the public phone system to call Bank of America as do some 7.5 billion consumers around the world who have mobile phones.
Peacefully calling from the safety of our own phones, we can put business as usual at the bank on hold non-violently and convince Republicans in Congress to join Democrats in impeaching Trump in order to keep Bank of America from going under. No one wants to see Bank of America go belly up… so we can all get real reasonable and find a satisfactory solution.
Don’t worry about Trump’s White Nationalists calling a “liberal” bank on Wall Street… there are no liberal banks on Wall Street.
Why call Bank of America? Because that’s where the money is.
Bank of America is a Wall Street icon, a corporate monster operating internationally. They are responsible for the Housing Market Fraud in 2008 that bankrupted millions of Americans and has added some $10 trillion dollars to national debt. Bank of America is a key player in the shadow government that controls our government. We can break up this gigantic corporate monopoly; and, at the same time, force the Republicans in Congress to impeach Trump… for fear of losing Bank of America and having the phone protest spread to other Wall Street Banks.
Got a phone and a few minutes?
- Call in solidarity until we have a large enough gathering of callers to disrupt business at Bank of America Merrill Lynch worldwide.
- Kill two birds with the same phone calls. We can break up Bank of America Merrill Lynch and protect the Mueller investigation at the same time.
- Take your money out of Bank of America. You don’t want your money in Bank of America Merrill Lynch when the avalanche hits, and there is a run on the bank, and it’s too late.
- Demonstrate out front of the nearest branch of Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Make the news, help spread the word, and turn customers away.
- Call anonymously risk free. You don’t need to travel anywhere or take time off work and lose pay. You don’t risk being tear gassed, beaten by riot police, attacked by dogs, blasted with high power pressure water hoses, shot with rubber bullets, or arrested and carted off to jail. You don’t need to fear being attacked, run over, killed or injured by Trump’s army of armed and violent followers. Just call Bank of America and pray for them ow wish them good day.
- Take a stand; join the Resistance. Organizing your own Call Squad to boycott the nearest Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
- Activate people on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Get the message out. Use your smartphone to network and help the Phone Protest go viral on the Internet activating thousands, millions of protesters around the globe to join in calling and cut off their communications with the outside world.
- Start by shutting down one Bank of America branch to make the news, go viral and ignite a Global Phone Protest in cities around the world.
- Financial markets hate uncertainty. Even Trump Republicans with money in Bank of America Merrill Lynch will join the protest the minute they get the bad news. They will join us on the phones flooding the bank with angry calls and complaints wanting their money out of the bank… to be safe. They will be the first to unload their stock.
- The Phone Protest can produce instant results when enough people call. Bank of America will call on Congress to meet our demands to stop the calls from putting them out of business, and Trump Republicans will want to dump Trump to save Bank of America from going bankrupt… and avoid a meltdown on Wall Street.
- The Phone Protest against Bank of America will turn Trump radioactive.
In order to speak to power, We the People must first be in a position of power.
Take it to the phones and shut down Bank of America until our voices are heard in Congress loud and clear. We won the House of Representatives, and now we are going to win the war against Trump.
We start winning by making Bank of America lose money. We win when Congress faces the threat of losing Bank of America if they don’t protect the Mueller investigation.
Flood the phones with calls to Bank of America Merrill Lynch to pay them back for the Housing Market crash of 2008. Drown out their communications non-violently and put their business on hold peacefully, cost them a bloody fortune from a safe distance. Rain down a hurricane of calls on them. Force the break-up Bank of America and their stock brokers Merrill Lynch. Shut them down until Republicans in Congress protect the Mueller investigation and join Democrats in impeaching Trump… or Congress loses Bank of America Merrill Lynch and faces the public backlash from a stock market crash on Wall Street.
