    In the beginning of time, the rule of law was countermanded by a decenter who wanted worship of self.
    At the end of time we see throughout history corruption in all its forms. Mankind is incapable of ruling without
    the one who made the rules.

    I remember former Senator Michelle Bachmann and other GOP politicians bark about American Exceptionalism when Obama was president. They are silent now, when the perversion of our judicial system under the authority of a usurper president is all but wiping out any semblance of such exceptionalism. What makes a banana country a banana country is precisely the perversion of justice to serve the powerful for its own ends. Isn't this what is going on here, in the USA? Doesn't this make us just another worthless and corrupt country?

    I live in a European country that was once a dictatorship. Salazar became a dictator following a lawful election process, just like DJT. Even after the revolution of 1974, Portugal still suffers from issues that have their origin in the Estado Novo. Please my friends, you desperately need to something, at the very least you can vote. Better still stand up and campaign, or even stand for election. Why do I say this? Its because I love America, I love its people, its institutions, its courage.

    "Principled" people in the government shouldn't EVER be resigning in protest, because that's just handing the keys to the lunatic high driver you're supposedly protesting against and then sitting yourself in the passenger, or "death" seat.

    If you are a Maddow follower, you will see in her appearance and emotional cues during this story, that she is tired and concerned for the future of our country. We all must be equally concerned and do what we can to thwart the ongoing attacks on our fellow citizens and our democracy if the country is going to survive this. Watching this clip, and waiting for the end to hear Rachel's answer to our emergency call that never came, was disturbing and unexpected. Where do we go from here?

    So what can the American people actually do? We mutter our discontent, shake our heads, or even yell in outrage, but with no action, nothing will happen at a time where systematic checks and balances are being usurped. Systematic checks and balances work only when people use them, and are meaningless words on paper without people. The longer we wait, the harder it is to fight corruption and tyranny, and the higher the actual, tangible tolls to those who fight back. If all else fails, honestly, the public should collectively, directly and physically remove the entire corrupt administration for their actions and hold them accountable if the rule of law has failed. One way or other, these criminals need to be brought to justice and made an example of.

    American law is now a laughing stock of the world a point the US accuses its enemies to have reached. The move to play out political discorse in the courts with capital barriers to justice is the sinking of the US to the twilight zone of the middle ages. The collapse of the political two party system both in the US and UK has lead to the division of the executive and judiciary to become burred. American and UK need to restore this dvision if it wants to continue to ccontinue economic success. Time for radical change is an all too common chant.

    So…. Are we allowing the white-washed, Tea-bagged Republicans Party, with their group thinking, frat party of habitual line stepper mentality, desecrating the values, growth and moral morale of our democracy in a republic we love, by unquestioning, unwavering, loyalty and the allowance of a fraudulent, criminal minded, autocrat with dictatorial tendencies, to steer America into the fates of Rome and Britannia. I hope at least we get him out in 2020 elections!

    Them withdrawing is a case of "the only way for evil to win is for good men to do nothing". In those that have morals quiting a corrupt institution leaves a vacuum to be filled with those with no morals. It would have been better for them to stay in and fight with their skills to the best of their abilities. To stay in and bring light to the issue.

    2018 Mid-term Elections was the highest number in history, the highest % since 1924, US Census Bureau site, 50.3%. Over 113 Million of the United States of America voted, and Republicans lost by over 10 Million. I have 1 question for all you "Voter Fruad" idiots, WHY do you only claim it when you lose?

    When you allow the rule of law to be crushed you face the creation of a police stae. The only answere is to create peacful demonstration and use the balot box before it is to late and the balot boxes are closed to you. to achieve this it is necessary to elect somone who not only believes inthe rule of law but also prractices what he preaches because the next step on the sliperry slope is the removal of the freedom of speach and then you have lost what your country stood for.

    Hard to overstate what a good presentation this is and how important the message it carries is for the American people. Trump has to go at the next election and that MUST be followed by a house cleaning of the people who have been and are complicit in undermining the constitution. These people are guilty of treasonous behavior and must be held to account in the elections if nowhere else. Wishing you all the best from the UK where we have our own issues with politicians who think they are more important than the country.

    America's TRUE "chicken has come home to roost" #FINALLY: NEANDERTHAL OVER HUMAN.

    For you midget-minded: #NOT talking about racial. I am talking about a MENTALITY & PREDISPOSITION.

    KKK religious ideology were/are feeble when compared to NAZI pseudo-science doctrine ideology.

    "White" America has ALWAYS allowed KKK to flourish because they are at the end of the day, FAMILY. KKK and Nazi were like oil & water, until the Nazi absorbed the KKK into a mutual goals coalition REBRANDED and called "ALT RIGHT" and targeted the GOP as their infiltration focus.

    TEA PARTY REPUBLICANS was the rebrand of KKK. ALT-RIGHT is the rebrand of the Nazi-led KKK-Nazi Alliance of the 2000s.

    ALT RIGHT has hijacked the REPUBLICAN PARTY and the Whitehouse in the person of Donald J. Trump who was raised KKK but publicly admired ADOLPH HITLER & his Nazi regime.

    Did I miss anything? I don't think so.

    Being "White" is analogy to Neanderthal-lineage, and 101% White Supremacy means #Neanderthal Supremacy.

    Trump and his allies represent the complete embodiment of Neanderthal thinking, practices, policies & customs TOTALLY limited by greed, bloodlust or fighting/pillages/wars and xenophobia to any/all non-Neanderthal lineage.

    If America would have banned the KKK as terrorist instead of making concessions to them (Electorial College was one), THERE WOULD BE NO NAZI IN AMERICA, AND NOW SLOWLY COUPING AMERICAN GOVERNMENT'S WHITE HOUSE, REPUBLICAN PARTY, AND NEW FEDERAL.COURT APPOINTEES..

    Only the death of one man can stop this Nazi plan to coupe America. I pray to God to have whoever that one man is that he pass away while sleeping, die of heart attack, choke on food, accidently fault off a boat and get eaten by sharks, etc. so that America can shed its curse of racism and preserve it's democracy into a leading GREEN world nation. #Amen

    Trump Derangement Syndrome is a new slang term for the Dunning Kruger effect. It affects a significant number of Americans, particularly those who rely heavily on MSNBC and CNN for their information on politics & current events. Professional help is available for this psychologically crippling affliction, but it’s up to those afflicted to admit they have a problem & seek help. The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.
