The Fall Of America 2: Explaining Trump Asking Comey For A Loyalty Oath As Trump's Inner African Dictator (GOP's "Loyalty Oaths" & Treasonous Tendencies Are Preventing Them From Impeaching Trump)

It's pretty clear Trump asked Comey for a loyalty oath and then lied about it later as his pattern of behavior shows, I bet there are no tapes of Trump's Comey conversation because Trump is too smug. I think he thinks he deserves to be a dictator and expects obedience like an African dictator and that's why he threatened Comey. Not only does he not have any sort of American values, he doesn't care about the country as well. He is our African dictator which just proves what I explained about the fall of America in the last post.

Of course, loyalty oaths to a person when loyalty oaths to a party is bad is a given. It's like having a communist/fascist party operating in America calling everyone else communists and bullying them so the wusses (that is all that's left of America) runaway.

First off, the GOP isn't a party that is American. It's basically a communist party whose loyalty is to itself first and the country second (if at all, they seem to want to rob it blind and destroy it). Seeking not to have a special prosecutor pretty much proves that but I thought I would approach the Republican Party's unAmerican bonafides from another angle. Here is the sort of atrocity the GOP uses to con the people into betraying thier country for a party of lies;

GOP counters Paul supporters with Romney loyalty oath Rachel Maddow reports on the Massachusetts Republican Party making delegates take an oath to vote for Mitt Romney -an effort to purge their ranks of infiltrating Ron Paul supporters.

Secondly, the GOP has been doing loyalty oaths that supersede the Constitution and the Country (like is happening with the Trump Administration) for a long time, it's practically a tradition. 

Maddow Blog: The GOP’s affinity for loyalty oaths

It’s easy to forget, but loyalty oaths were not uncommon in Republican circles during the Bush/Cheney era.
In August 2004, however, then-Vice President Cheney spoke at an event in Albuquerque, but locals were only allowed to get a ticket to attend if they first signed a loyalty oath swearing they “endorse George W. Bush for reelection of the United States [sic].”
A couple of months later, at a Bush event in Florida, a Republican asked those in attendance to stand, raise their right hands, and recite a Pledge of Allegiance … to George W. Bush. As part of the oath, attendees were told to say: “Because I care, I promise to work hard to re-elect, re-elect George W. Bush as president of the United States.”
I’m trying to imagine what Republicans would say in 2012 if Democrats pushed voters to stand, raise their right hands, and pledge their allegiance to President Obama.
In any case, Bush and Cheney are no longer in office, but Republicans’ affinity for loyalty oaths hasn’t gone away. In recent months, we’ve seen GOP loyalty oaths pop up in Virginia and Kansas, for example, and in April, members of the Republican National Committee were invited to a private meeting with Mitt Romney – before he’d secured the nomination – but in order to attend, they had to, you guessed it, pledge their loyalty to Romney in writing.
But perhaps the most striking example came over the weekend in Massachusetts, where the state Republican Party didn’t know what to do with all the Ron Paul acolytes who had taken over the state’s delegation to the national convention. Party leaders quickly discovered the value of loyalty oaths.
Evan Kenney had just turned 18 and registered to vote for the first time when he campaigned to be an alternate delegate to the Republican National Convention. Lauding Ronald Reagan’s principles and blasting Keynesian economics at the Lynnfield caucus in April, the Wakefield High School senior beat out several well-known Massachusetts Republicans, including the party’s most recent nominee for governor, Charles D. Baker Jr.
But earlier this month, Kenney was one of 17 delegates and alternates disqualified by a Republican committee deciding who gets to represent Massachusetts Republicans at the national convention in Tampa. Kenney and others had failed to deliver in time an affidavit swearing, under the penalty of perjury, that they would support Mitt Romney’s nomination for president.
And wouldn’t you know it, some were uncomfortable with this.
Keep in mind, as the Boston Globe noted, these affidavits are “never mentioned in the Republican Party’s rules for selecting delegates and has never been required of delegates in the past.” But the state party had a problem this year with these Paulites, so they figured demanding written loyalty oaths would disqualify some of the undesirable delegates.
They were right to assume this – several delegates balked, and Paul’s backers were soon winnowed from the Massachusetts delegation.

So when Trump does it the GOP and it's propaganda division just fall in line cause that's what Republicans do, they follow their leader blindly....

MITT HAPPENS 4/12/11Mitt Romney competes with Mike Huckabee, Donald Trump and a long list of dark horses for the Republican nomination.

CNN: The Republican party is more traditional than many analysts realize. With John McCain's support, the "waiting in line" torch was passed on to Mitt Romney and so he was the unofficial 'party head'. Despite the tea party’s extraordinary energy over the past year, it looks like former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will win his party’s nomination. At the end of the day, Republicans are following a familiar pattern: Nominating the mainstream candidate who has waited his turn. This is the party that’s had a Bush or a Dole on its ticket for 20 years. It’s a party that also had Richard Nixon on its presidential ticket for 20 years.

Our primary allegiance is to the Constitution. Then in the 1892 a socialist came up with a pledge to the flag which is common in every country on this planet and thus normal but is meant to represent the constitution as a symbol and not supersede it... but to pledge allegiance (loyalty oaths) to a party as well is just wrong and unAmerican. YOUR ALLEGIANCE AND LOYALTY SHOULD BE TO THE CONSTITUTION AND THE COUNTRY FIRST - AND NEVER TO A PARTY! 

And certainly not a third world style dictator.

CNN: Megyn Kelly: Roger Ailes 'demanded loyalty'

CNN: Comey firing puts Trump's most cherished trait on center stage: Loyalty

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump is obsessed with loyalty. Trump fumed last week when FBI Director James Comey told senators that it made him "mildly nauseous" to think he tipped the balance in the 2016 campaign. A longtime Trump friend told CNN it made the President "white hot."

Another source close to the now-former FBI director said Trump fired Comey because he never provided the President with any assurance of personal loyalty. That explanation tracks with the businessman-turned-politician's decades in the private sector, where he wrote and spoke repeatedly about the importance of loyalty, casting the trait as something every leader must demand from their employees.

Comey's firing has put that deep seated Trump desire on center stage, bringing to bear how the President's business history -- and management style -- are influencing the day-to-day operations of his White House. During a question-and-answer session from The Learning Annex Wealth Expo, Trump was asked for the "key things" a boss should look for when hiring someone and building a team. Trump was blunt. "The thing that's most important to me is loyalty," Trump said. "You can't hire loyalty. I've had people over the years who I swore were loyal to me, and it turned out that they weren't. Then I've had people that I didn't have the same confidence in and turned out to be extremely loyal. So you never really know." He added: "The thing I really look for though, over the longer term, is loyalty."

This answer, along with the book he wrote with Trump in 2009, led Bill Zanker, the president and founder of The Learning Annex, to write: "Loyalty is important to Trump and is a wonderful trait to have in business." Trump and Zanker worked together on "Think Big: Make It Happen in Business and Life," their 2009 how-to book on business that is chock full of Trump's musing about loyalty.

This was the moment took over the GOP and became lead dictator, eventually;

NY Mag: The GOP’s Candidate Loyalty Pledge Is Dead — Now Things Might Get Really Messy

After Donald Trump started making noise about a potential third-party run last summer, the Republican National Committee scrambled to neutralize the threat. They drafted a "loyalty pledge" binding all GOP candidates to support the party’s eventual nominee and cajoled Trump into signing his name. In retrospect, the idea that you could solve a problem like the Donald with a little contract probably has Reince Priebus laughing until he cries. Trump has always had some trouble with commitment. The moment he took the party’s loyalty oath he offered himself a loophole: He would support the nominee so long as the GOP treated him “fairly.”

... and like sheep (as Gutfeld put it) the GOP followed;

Even GOP candidates bristle at Republican ‘loyalty oaths’

Republican officials in Virginia have been toying with partisan “loyalty oaths” for quite a while. They’re not improving with age.
In the 2000 cycle, Virginia Republicans originally tried to disseminate a form asking voters to pledge support for “all of the Republican Party’s nominees in the next election.” When state election officials balked, the Virginia GOP made voters in its primary promise not to participate in the primaries of any other party. Eight years later, Republican officials in the Commonwealth planned to push a loyalty pledge in their presidential primary, but abandoned the idea for fear of pushing away independent voters.
Four years ago, Virginia Republicans announced that in order to participate in their primary, voters would have to sign a form that read, “I, the undersigned, pledge that I intend to support the nominee of the Republican Party for president.”
And in the current cycle, the Virginia GOP is pushing another pledge, though this one is shorter: those participating in the state’s March 1 primary will be expected to sign a form that reads, “My signature below indicates that I am a Republican.”
As the Washington Post reported, the Republican frontrunner isn’t happy about this.
Donald Trump slammed the Republican Party of Virginia via Twitter on Sunday for its plan to require that 2016 primary voters sign a statement confirming they are Republicans.
Trump and others say the requirement could discourage independent and first-time voters from casting primary ballots in Virginia, where primaries are open to all registered voters.
According to some experts, the voter pledge has the potential to hurt Trump in particular, because his unorthodox candidacy has attracted voters disenchanted with traditional party politics.
Trump’s tweet language can get a little garbled, but in one message published over the weekend, the candidate wrote, “It begins, Republican Party of Virginia, controlled by the RNC, is working hard to disallow independent, unaffiliated and new voters. BAD!” He added soon after the state party’s approach is “stupid.”

White House connects Comey firing, ‘conclusion’ of Russia probe

This was probably not a smart thing to say given the circumstances.
The White House said Thursday that removing FBI Director James Comey from his post may hasten the agency’s investigation into Russian meddling.

“We want this to come to its conclusion, we want it to come to its conclusion with integrity,” said deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders, referring to the FBI’s probe into Moscow’s interference in last year’s election. “And we think that we’ve actually, by removing Director Comey, taken steps to make that happen.”
CNN’s report characterized this as a “surprising admission from the White House that Comey’s sudden dismissal on Tuesday may have an effect on the Russia probe.”

That’s right.

In terms of the context, the White House’s contradictions reflect a degree of internal chaos. Two days ago, in a Fox News interview, Sanders, the president’s principal deputy press secretary, said the White House wants the investigation into the Russia scandal to end. “It’s time to move on,” she argued.

A day later – which is to say, yesterday – during the White House press briefing, Sanders changed direction, saying the president wants the investigation to keep going. Trump, she said, wants Justice Department officials “to continue with whatever they see appropriate and sees fit, just the same as he’s encouraged the House and Senate committees to continue any ongoing investigations.”

And today, she changed back, saying the White House wants the investigation to “come to its conclusion.”
