Trump Is Really Trying to Set the World on Fire And the whole world burns

The Year of Trump Has Laid Bare the U.S. Constitution’s Serious Flaws Their inspirational vision needs an urgent update.

The first is that Trump has vividly demonstrated that much of what keeps a democracy intact is not enshrined in the written letter of a constitution, but resides instead in customs and conventions – norms – that are essential to civic wellbeing. Trump trampled all over those as a candidate – refusing to disclose his tax returns, for example – and has trampled over even more as president.
Convention dictated that he had to divest himself of private business concerns on taking office, to prevent a conflict of interest – but in the absence of a law explicitly forcing him to do so, he did no such thing. The same goes for appointing unqualified relatives to senior jobs, sacking the director of the FBI with no legitimate cause, or endorsing an accused child molester for the US Senate. No law told him he couldn’t, so he did.
I once thought the US constitution – a document crafted with almost mathematical precision, constructing a near-perfect equilibrium of checks and balances – offered protection against such perils. And there’s no denying that that text, as interpreted by the courts, has indeed acted as a partial roadblock in Trump’s path, delaying and diluting his Muslim-focused “travel ban”, for example.
But this year of Trump has also shown the extent to which the US has an unwritten constitution that – just like ours – relies on the self-restraint of the key political players, a self-restraint usually insisted upon by a free press. Yet when confronted with a leader unbound by any sense of shame – and shamelessness might just be Trump’s defining quality – America is left unexpectedly vulnerable.
Of course, there is a remedy, and its name is impeachment. Scholars are clear that Trump has already provided sufficient legal grounds for such a move – the case against him is far more compelling than the one against Bill Clinton. But impeachment proceedings are triggered by the House of Representatives, followed by a trial in the Senate, and nothing will happen so long as Republicans control both houses of Congress.
In 2017 we saw with new clarity that the strength of the US constitution depends entirely on the willingness of those charged with enforcing it to do their duty. And today’s Republicans refuse to fulfil that obligation. They, like Trump, are without shame. This was a fatal oversight by Hamilton, James Madison and their fellow framers of the constitution. They did not reckon on a partisanship so intense it would blind elected representatives to the national interest – so that they would, repeatedly, put party ahead of country. The founders did not conceive of a force like today’s Republican party, willing to indulge a president nakedly hostile to ideals Americans once held sacred.
My 1998 self asks me whether, say, the Westminster parliament would really be so different if confronted by a Trump-like would-be autocrat. Would individual MPs suppress their own revulsion and back him, fearing deselection by party activists if they did not – much as congressional Republicans won’t move against Trump lest they face the wrath of his base? It’s conceivable. And yet a parliamentary vote of no confidence is a lower hurdle than impeachment. Put simply, it would be easier to get rid of a British Trump.
And these weaknesses in the US model have prompted me to see others. The second amendment does not compel Americans to allow an unrestricted flow of guns into the hands of the violent and dangerous, but the fact that the argument hinges on interpretations of a text written more than two centuries ago is itself a problem. It means America, in the words of that great revolutionary Thomas Paine, is too often “like dead and living bodies chained together”, today’s generation shackled to the words of their ancestors.

This is not a highly respected person in mainstream media, but Alex Jones gets it right  on what sort of person Trump is (& proving he's not a Constitutionalist or real American in the process! What a bonus!)...

Alex Jones tries to flatter Trump by comparing him to Hitler Jones: Like Trump, "Hitler did what he said he'd do"

MICHAEL WOLFF (AUTHOR): My credibility is being questioned by a man [Donald Trump] who has less credibility than perhaps anyone who has ever walked on earth at this point.
ALEX JONES (HOST): And just the lies that President Trump is the most dishonest, discredited person in history, doing 95 percent of what he said he'd do. At least getting it done or trying to get it done. And then he’s -- says he's changed his mind on Afghanistan, I think that's wrong. He's not doing the stuff he said he'd do on vaccines, that's wrong. He needs to move forward and he is starting to move forward to get things cleared up for [Julian] Assange. That’s happening with the grand juries and all of it being dismissed, and so, yeah, I guess he’s starting to deliver there. OK. He's done some other stuff.
But, I mean -- who delivered on their promises like this? George Washington? Once Thomas Jefferson got in he wasn't so much as a libertarian as he was before. He was still a pretty good guy, but he flip flopped on like 80 percent, so you can't say Jefferson, even though he was a really smart guy. A lot of his writings influenced me but -- I mean, who did what they'd said they'd do like this? Abraham Lincoln was an occultist and a weirdo. Had all sorts of health problems and drank mercury seltzers every morning just so he could stop the disease he had of his bones growing over his joints and his nerves. I forget the disease, I was reading a book about it a few years ago, very interesting.
Hitler did what he said he'd do. A lot of times evil actually will do what it says, but then you have to actually -- what are the promises? Are they good and is it being followed through on? And the answer is yes. The answer is yes. Who else has been following through on their promises? Vladimir Putin. From what he does politically, very honorable. And they’ll probably have that, “Oh, see he’s a Russian agent.” No, I’m an agent of the truth. Vladimir Putin is the only other modern statesman that delivers on what he says he will do. And now it’s back in vogue because of people like Nigel Farage, and Ron Paul, and Vladimir Putin, and Donald Trump.
