Should Hillary Have Been President?

COMMENT: You just support Trump. Hillary won the popular vote and should be in the white house.

REPLY: You seem to think that the popular vote should pick the president. I am certain if it had been the other way you be against the popular vote. The system was designed to prevent the tyranny of one state dominating the rest, which is what took place in Europe. Merkel unilaterally opened the gates to “Syrian Refugees” and that decision she made herself without a vote, even by the German people. She alone has decided the fate of all of Europe. That is how the political decisions of one state can impose tyranny upon all others in the union.

You are also probably unaware the Hillary also beat Obama in the Democratic primaries. The Democratic nomination for the 2008 election was interesting for Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, but ultimately Obama won more unpledged delegates and therefore the nomination. The delegates made the choice personally, not the people. Did they want to have the first black president or woman? They chose Obama for they believed he would gain them the victory for all the black voters would come out for him but not her.

Even that did not really work for during the actual presidential election of 2008, Obama won only 52.9% of the popular vote. There was no landslide which they were looking for. Obama agreed to give Hillary the State Department, which she turned into a money-making scheme to appease her since she had also won the popular vote in the primaries.

Personally, I prefer a NON-CAREER politician. It does not matter what party they reside in, for it will always be them against us.

The Coming Crisis – What to Watch?

QUESTION: Dear Martin – We owe your respect for what you are doing and I wanna say thanks for educating your followers like me. With the issue of this growing international crisis, are you able to provide ideas on what the triggers maybe when it begins to come out of the surface? What can we observe to identify the beginning, EU Bonds – you mentioned IGOV – the currency, what else? I guess all of your followers are highly interested in that.
Many thanks,

ANSWER: The first was the inverted yield curve which led many to think we were heading into a recession last summer. Then the Repo Crisis hit and despite being touted as just a fluke due to taxes, after more than three months the Fed cannot get out of providing liquidity without stepping back and allowing the free markets to raise short-term rates.

The liquidity crisis has spread even to Japan. Here the Bank of Japan has stood up and announced it would but government bonds without any limitation trying to also prevent interest rates from rising.

The ECB will have to deal with the whole negative interest rate crisis they have created. They will be forced to allow rates to rise or all member states will have to agree to allow the ECB to adopt the same policies as in Japan — buy all government debt without limit.

Keep an eye on Europe. I do not see any way of avoiding this crisis. Politicians are too busy with other things. The free market will push rates higher and the central banks will be unable to prevent the rise in rates ahead.

 

Has Schiff Abused the Power of Congress?

QUESTION: The Democrats said that Dershowitz’s argument on the constitutional grounds to impeach Trump is “absurdist.” What is your UNBIASED opinion if you can be unbiased?

HM

ANSWER: Obstruction of Congress is a bogus charge. The purpose of Executive Privilege is to maintain the separation of power. The Democrats had the right to go to the courts and to compel documents they wanted as well as testimony. Adam Schiff did not do that because he knew he would lose. The excuse he offered instead was this impeachment is such an emergency, it could not wait. Sorry, then they held the articles of impeachment for about a month? Look, this is all gamesmanship. They want to be able to then say Trump should have been impeached and the Republicans protected him and use that in the 2020 election.

The Judiciary is the third branch of government with the duty to provide the check and balance to the system. Because of this very gamesmanship, even if Trump was convicted, based upon the evidence in this case and the manner in which the Democrats have proceeded trying to avoid the Judiciary, Trump would be in his right to REFUSE to step down unless so directed by the Supreme Court.

Congress could pass a law that says any president must step down if they committed adultery because it is a crime, although rarely enforced. In 1980, a Massachusetts couple was spotted having sex in a van. They were confronted by police and they admitted they were married but not to each other. They were then arrested for adultery. The man admitted his guilt and paid a fine of $50, but the woman appealed, invoking the same right of privacy defined in landmark contraception and abortion cases. The court rejected the argument and upheld the conviction. Indeed, adultery is a crime in many states and thus could actually be enforced if the police chose to do so.

Therefore, Congress could attempt to impeach a president like Bill Clinton and they would be within their power. The question would then become, is adultery within the meaning of high crimes and misdemeanors? Indeed, you would probably be able to impeach most of Congress. Many people do not realize that some states have made even premarital sex a crime. Utah just in 2019 finally repealed a 1973 fornication law punishing sex outside of marriage as a class B misdemeanor with up to $1,000 in fines and six months in jail.

The entire impeachment process needs to really be defined clearly, in my opinion, by the Supreme Court. Indeed, let us look at two former justices of the Supreme Court who both expressed the view that the judiciary indeed has a vital role in reining in Congress were it to exceed its constitutional authority. Justice Byron White, a John F. Kennedy appointee, expressed whether Trump would have a right to appeal to the Supreme Court if convicted like any other person in the country. He wrote:

“Finally, as applied to the special case of the President, the majority argument merely points out that, were the Senate to convict the President without any kind of trial, a Constitutional crisis might well result. It hardly follows that the Court ought to refrain from upholding the Constitution in all impeachment cases. Nor does it follow that, in cases of presidential impeachment, the Justices ought to abandon their constitutional responsibility because the Senate has precipitated a crisis.”

Justice David Souter, a George H. W. Bush appointee, echoed the very same proposition:

“If the Senate were to act in a manner seriously threatening the integrity of its results … judicial interference might well be appropriate.”

Legally, Clinton could have been found guilty of adultery, but they did not charge him with that. It certainly would have been legal. Then Clinton could have appealed to the Supreme Court and perhaps then they would have to determine what type of misdemeanor would even warrant removal from office. I would suspect it would have to be at least a class A  misdemeanor which is typically punishable by a jail sentence of no more than one year, and a fine of a certain amount. The lessor class misdemeanor may carry sentences of only months or days.

Had Schiff gone to court to enforce his subpoenas as the law provides, then this entire mess would have been sorted out properly. Instead, we have an impeachment which is designed solely for the election. I BELIEVE Schiff has acted beyond his constitutional power and has indeed abused the power of Congress. He may be regarded by historians alongside McCarthy.

Biblical Swarms of Locusts Threaten Food Supply to a New Virus that Kills

Many people have been writing in highlighting things around the world that all seem to be taking place with this turn in the ECM. One is the sudden swarm of Locusts into Kenya that the UN has warned presents an ‘extreme danger’ to wipe out the food supply. Sky News reports it as the worst in 25 years threatening a food crisis.

Others have written in about this new disease spreading rapidly out of China. This has prompted travelers from China to be screened at US airports for a mysterious new virus that has killed 2 and sickened dozens.

I want to thank all the people writing in and observing what is taking place on a global scale. This is good that many have begun to see that we are indeed all connected in this world.

 

The Real Conspiracy – Hillary & Pelosi

While everyone is left scratching their head as to why Pelosi, who said impeachment was bad for the country, she suddenly changed and became of its greatest supporter in the Democrats. Then she held on to the articles of impeachment for about a month which she pretended was to force witnesses to be heard in the Senate, when she knew that her tactics were unconstitutional and even members of her own party were left trying to figure out just what the heck was she up to?

The 2016 election was stolen from Bernie which is why he went to complain to Obama after the votes were rigged and given to Hillary in California. Only after Bernie went to the White House and Obama told him to suck-it-up and take one for the team, did Bernie support Hillary.

This time, the Democrat power-brokers behind the curtain are looking to prevent Bernie once again from winning the nomination. But they also know that Joe Biden is damaged goods and they have no candidate who could possibly win against Trump.

Our computer has been projecting a Trump victory in 2020, but this is not something that will be by a wide margin. We are going to rerun the models and double-check the data to make sure there is no mistake for as it stands now, Trump would win in a landslide looking at a candidate of Biden or Bernie. There is something else brewing behind the curtain for our model that seems to be suggesting a tighter race.

The Clintons have long been regarded as the most corrupt policial couple perhaps in American history. The scheme is to drag out the Impeachment hearing, not to actually get rid of Trump, but to tie up all the senators running in the Democratic Party and force them off the campaign trail. Why? This is not just to give Biden a clear path. They also realize that Biden and his son could be called as witnesses and that will be contested in the Supreme Court.

Then there is all this talk that Pence should be impeached and removed as well. That means the third person in line for the Presidency would be Nancy Pelosi in the flesh. The line of succession following the vice president is none other than the speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi. After that, it is the president pro tempore of the Senate, and then the eligible heads of federal executive departments who form the president’s Cabinet.

I do not believe (opinion) this is being considered behind the curtain in any serious manner. However, it is being used as a distraction to hide from public view the real conspiracy behind the curtain.

The REAL conspiracy is that the Democratic candidates will be so divided that at the convention, they will move to DRAFT Hillary relieving her of ever having to appear in any primary or suffer the arrows from the herd of contenders. Tieing up the Impeachment in the Senate will not prevent Trump from campaigning, but it will clear the field of Democrats with an eye on the White House.

The only way to defeat the Hillary conspiracy is if Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D. Minn., Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. RECUSE themselves from the trial because they are running against Trump. Under the Constitution, they are REQUIRED to be there. Even this would be a legal question: Do they have to still attend if they RECUSE themselves? The Impeachment has created a real mess even for the Democrats.

Let’s see. Our sources are usually pretty good. But this seems to be a real conspiracy in the works.
