IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, NOVEMBER 3, 2020
Let it be the unanimous Declaration of the People of the United States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to save their Constitution, defend the rule of law, maintain peace and harmony among themselves and pass on the baton of liberty to posterity, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to vote OUT an imposter, an arrant con man and scam artist, an ignoramus, criminal suspect under investigation in the State of New York and pretender to the office of the office of President of the United States.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men and Women, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, vote it OUT of office and to vote in a new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to hijack constitutional government, trample on the rule of law, trash representative government and reduce the people under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to vote OUT of Government a two-bit ignorant megalomaniac and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these United States for the past four years; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to dump Trump, Donald J. The history of Trump, Donald J. is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of a an absolute neofascist Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has trashed the bedrock principles of the Republic’s federalism by undertaking political extortion threatening and withholding constitutionally appropriated funds to so-called sanctuary cities in the states.
He has trashed bedrock principles of separation of powers by exercising legislative powers in violation of the Impoundment Control Act of 1974.
He has violated bedrock principles of federalism by attempting to coerce States to become appendages of federal law enforcement effectively usurping plenary federal powers over immigration.
He has, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the law, and attempted to divert $2.5 billion in Defense Department funds toward construction of a so-called border wall.
He has undermined bedrock separation of powers and rule of law principles and flagrantly undermined the independence of judiciary by personally attacking and denigrating members of the federal judiciary who have ruled against his policies. He continues to undermine the legitimacy of the courts and the justice system as his personal enemies and not as a coequal branch to be respected even when he disagrees with its decisions.
He has attacked the press by publicly denigrating reporters and journalists, demeaning press institutions, barring reporters who have sought to hold him accountable to the public, perpetrating claims of “fake news” to conceal facts of wrongdoing and barring reporters and scrubbing or withholding information from government websites.
He has abused the executive privilege of his office by repeatedly instructing current and past members of his administration to refuse to recognize the authority of congressional subpoenas, withholding vital evidence from Congress and stonewalling congressional investigations.
He has abused the power of his office by withholding $391 million in security aid for Ukraine with the aim of unlawfully pressuring Ukraine into investigating a political rival in the United States.
He has engaged in obstruction of Congress by stonewalling the impeachment inquiry of the U.S. House of Representatives by refusing to provide documents and evidence to congressional investigators and by instructing his top advisers and government officials to defy subpoenas and refuse to testify.
He has violated the “Emoluments Clause” of the Constitution by undertaking for personal profit vast, complicated and secret business arrangements to accept gifts from foreign governments without the permission of Congress.
He has created a smoke and mirrors blind trust in which he put his adult sons in charge of his company allowing him to personally profit at the expense of the public treasury by circumventing conflict of interest laws and in flagrant disregard of the honored tradition of American presidents placing their financial holdings in a blind trust to maximize transparency and accountability.
He has enforced unconstitutional loyalty tests by requiring federal employees to pledge loyalty to him personally and his administration or face dismissal in an attempt to avoid accountability and transparency in the office of the President of the United States.
He has obstructed justice by employing unlawful means to impede criminal investigations by the Federal Bureau of Investigations.
He has been impeached by the House of Representatives under Article I, Section 4 of the Constitution.
He has appointed his lawyer to oversee the distribution of the $500 billion slush fund for corporations while dismissing from office the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community who delivered a whistle blower complaint to Congress.
He has solicited the president of the Government of the People’s Republic of China to interfere in the American political process to help him win the 2020 presidential election by proposing on quid pro quo basis linking tariff with purchases of American agricultural products to help him win farm states in the 2020 presidential election.
He has weakened the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) enacted to prohibit the payment of bribes to foreign officials to assist in obtaining or retaining business undermining American moral leadership in the world.
He has consorted with assorted white collar criminals many of whom have been indicted and convicted. pardoned swarms of criminals by misusing his presidential pardon power to political advantage. One of the convicted criminals pardoned by Trump has publicly urged Trump to declare martial law if Trump loses the 2020 election.
He has been accused and sued by dozens of women for rape, sexual assault and harassment bringing disrepute and dishonor to the Office of President of the United States.
He has been a superspreader of lies in his public statements. His deliberate and intentional lies, misstatements, understatements and cover up about the perils, gravity and intensity of the Novel Coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the needless deaths of nearly 200 thousand Americans.
He has concealed and deliberately and intentionally lied and misled the American people about the grave dangers of a deadly pandemic knowing “This is deadly stuff ” and declaring, “I wanted to always play it down,” at a critical time when reasonable and appropriate preventive measures could have been taken to effectively reduce infection and mortality rates.
He has directly and indirectly encouraged and enticed enemies of the United States to engage in criminal acts by, among other things, breaking into a Democratic Party computer network, plunder files and deliver them to a criminal group.
He has engaged in a pattern and practice of inciting racial and sectarian violence in violation of criminal laws of the United States and the laws of the States.
He has diverted laundered money through so-called “pass-through” vendors linked to his campaign leadership instead of disclosing the true recipients of the funds.
He has demonstrated gross incompetence, dishonesty and unfitness for the Office of President of the United States.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated insult and injury. A pretender to office whose character is thus marked by every act which may define an ignorant Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
We, therefore, the People of the united States of America, on November 3, 2020 solemnly publish and declare, That We are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent of the scourge of Trump, Donald J.
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other with our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor TO VOTE OUT OF OFFICE TRUMP, DONALD J. ON NOVEMBER 3, 2020!
We, the People of the United States do hereby ordain and establish this DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE FROM DONALD J. TRUMP NOVEMBER 3, 2020!
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men and women to do nothing.” Or vote EVIL out of office!
