Donald Trump — A Clear and Present Danger to America

On May 9, President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, the official who was leading a federal investigation into questionable, and possibly illegal, connections between Mr. Trump and the Russian government. The firing is eerily reminiscent of the "Saturday Night Massacre," the evening in October 1973 when President Nixon ordered the firing of Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox.

    "We Must resist Mr. Trump with every lawful means at our disposal" Does that include Connecticut‘s favorite amendment? If your article was perceived to be a motion in favor of "resistance" I‘m curious - what threshold - standard - burden must be met in order for a court to deem consensus for the LAWFUL NON-ACADEMIC utility of the second amendment? You compare our modern problems with the Civil War where we lost lives than in all other wars. Why not compare it to the revolutionary war? Or a war between libtards and pragmatic people? This article invites venomous responses and disagreement, is not well thought out nor well written and has no place in a law forum.

    Infecting a law forum with an article representing your personal ideology demonstrates the incompatibility of politics and justice. The ongoing decay of our state and our country is championed by idiots writing meaningless articles like this. If half the people applaud it, there is the other half of relevant individuals who oppose, and under a blind system of justice should be given equal weight unburdened by the jabbering propaganda of the left or the right . It is very difficult to take a law publication seriously that allows vitriolic partisan vomit where at least half of the people disagree and the author at best, can be described as an illiterate, uninformed, liberal douche bag.

    The very liberal CT Law Tribune never fails to entertain!

    Or, how about this? We could recognize that elections have consequences and figure out a way to work with this administration to accomplish something positive for the country. Whatever his faults, it seems clear that this President prides himself on being a deal-maker and we know he has far greater liberal leanings than his stump speeches imply. If the LOYAL opposition would sit down with the majority and start talking about finding common ground - and there is a great deal of common ground - we might actually accomplish something over the next four years instead of the gridlock we endured over the past eight years. Rhetoric like this this only engenders opposition for the sake of obstructionism and is not constructive to achieving the greater good. I would have expected better "advice" in this venue. Let‘s find ways to make the most of the present circumstances, and stop wailing and gnashing our teeth wishing the circumstances were different.
