    It is apparent that Donald Trump's opponents are attempting to invalidate his Presidency by all means at their disposal. With the mainstream media deliberately aiding this effort, what means are left to preserve the idea of a Constitutionally elected President?

    Can SCOTUS alone defeat this attempted coup, or must the President institute a counter-coup by a wholesale firing of corrupt officials in the USDOJ? It would probably require the Senate to eliminate the filibuster rule and other impediments to approving their replacements, but are there enough courageous Senators to do so?

    Are we about to surrender the Constitution to the mob, are are we going to fight back?

    Depends on what happens. Most likely unless we are fortunate the country is doomed as far as freedom and us controlling politicians is concerned.

    Should such circumstances occur, the insurgency would be widespread and unending.

    Not a threat. Just an observation.

    In 2008, Donald Trump said George W. Bush should’ve been impeached

    BLITZER: Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker?

    TRUMP: When she first got in and was named speaker, I met her. And I'm very impressed by her. I think she's a very impressive person, I like her a lot. But I was surprised that she didn't do more in terms of Bush and going after Bush. It just seemed like she was really going to look to impeach Bush and get him out of office. Which personally I think would have been a wonderful thing.

    BLITZER: To impeach him?

    TRUMP: For the war! For the war! Well, he lied! He got us into the war with lies! I mean, look at the trouble Bill Clinton got into with something that was totally unimportant. They tried to impeach him, which was nonsense. And yet Bush got us into this horrible war with lies, by lying. By saying they had weapons of mass destruction.

    Here is the actual power that applies: To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization

    Hence the informative disclaimer. Readers of my posts here know that civil war is the last thing I want to see in my back yard.
