48 – My Thoughts On Impeachment

There is an overwhelming preponderance of evidence to suggest the President of the United States is a man of immortality of the highest order. Policies aside – the sanctity of the Oval Office and the Office of the Presidnecy are at stake. The foundations of our government in reality and symbolically are at stake. The Congress has a constitutional duty, and a moral obligation to impeach the President of the United States.

47 – Muellers Statements Today

Today the former special consul Rober Mueller gave a press conference where he made a public statement regarding the release of his report and on the ongoing back and forth between The White House, Congress and the Media. Mueller in so few words, referred to Congress that Impeachment proceedings ought to begin against the President. That if the Donald J. Trump was not a sitting president, he would be indicted. That if they had confidence that the President did not commit a crime, then they would have said so. Rober Mueller today showed the American public and the world how deeply in a crisis we are truly in.

Issue Brief, 13 – A Word On Senator Sanders

While I support Senator Sanders I believe his comments regarding allowing certain individuals – in the case of his comments, the Boston Marathon Bombers –  the right , the sacred right to participate in our democracy as ill advised and misguided. Those that actively seek to sow terror and discord among their fellow countrymen, whatever their ideology is, should not be allowed to participate in our democratic processes because they themselves seek to fundamentally undermine it.

46 – In Support of Free, Fair, and Just Trade

Free trade holds the promise of bringing the nations of the world closer together in economic interdependence, and fosters peace among the peoples of the world. When we are one, the chance of conflict lessens – however free trade as it stands works to line the pockets of politicans, businesses and barons of industry rather than work for the workers. We need free trade to foster peace, fair trade to make the rights of workers uniform around the world, and just trade to uplift the peoples of the world from poverty.

44 – In Support of A European Army

The European Union is perhaps the greatest project in peace on a continent in history – the nations of Europe are inextricably linked in their history and have been in conflict for near all of it – the union today has guaranteed peace for near seventy years. Today, that order is under threat from within and without. A unified European identity can only be maintained, and the international order can only be preserved and strengthened through a unified European Army.
