A New American Manifesto

  1. He has interfered with state Governors’ abilities to take care of their states in times of crisis, constantly breaking promises and being unreliable, just to wear them down so that they will do whatever he wants and then neglects them even when they do it.
  2. He has abused the powers of the Presidency, leveraging people’s rights for business purposes.
  3. He turns public events into personal campaign stunts, wearing all the rational people down with his antics and erratic behavior
  4. He has repeatedly fired the heads of critical agencies for refusing to support his illegal and abusive orders.
  5. He routinely leaves these positions unfilled so that Congress doesn’t have a formal say in confirming nominations. This allows him to keep unconfirmed lackeys at the heads of agencies where Congress can’t touch them and they can sabotage and exploit the agencies without consequence, leaving the public without the safety those agencies provide. This causes chaos.
  6. He has imposed harsh immigration laws and is directly attacking the economies of States and cities that allow people he doesn’t like into their borders.
  7. He has rigged the Judicial system, conspiring with Congress to break rules to secure his judge appointments.
  8. He has made shady deals with judicial appointees to influence them.
  9. He is inventing personal secret police squads to terrorize and harass the population
  10. He has flooded our cities with militarized personnel against the wishes of local populations and their governments.
  11. He glorifies violent law enforcement and elevates them above the rest of the humans in the country
  12. He has corrupted the Justice Department and Congress, using them to help him create a wholly unconstitutional set of policies
  13. He pardons and covers for crimes committed by these henchmen and refuses to allow any accountability for their treason
  14. He has started costly and economically damaging trade wars
  15. He supports extrajudicial killings and encourages a lack of due process by law enforcement.
  16. He uses tax laws to steal from the poor and give to the rich.
  17. He supports the use of black sites, torture and other brutal authoritarian measures
  18. He has leveraged the oversized jurisdiction of the Border Patrol to impose their power on areas and people they were never intended to.
  19. He has trampled the rule of law, all protocol and policy. He shows no respect whatsoever for the institutions of government.
  20. He is overreaching with Federal jurisdiction, overriding local jurisdictions with his own teams.
  21. He isn’t protecting America, he’s waging war on us.
  22. He has withdrawn us from crucial environmental treaties, deregulated industry, refused aid for wildfires, and has allowed over 200,000 people to die needlessly from a preventable pandemic
  23. His federal forces have been stockpiling weapons for use against the civilian populace
  24. He turns dissidents against each other, threatening them with high crimes if they don’t turn against their fellow protestors.
  25. He starts riots and leverages those brutal, merciless folks embedded in our every community, the police, whose known rules of engagement are “anyone who’s not a cop can die”
