The Inquisition of Donald Trump

Early in January 2017, New York Times columnist Charles Blow charged that Russian hackers had invaded Democrat Party computers and that therefore Donald Trump’s presidency would be “illegitimate.” [1]

Blow’s claim was called by the World Socialist Web Site “a revival of the scaremongering and witch-hunting methods of McCarthyism, now directed against Russia and Trump, Moscow’s alleged agent in Washington.” [1]

Later, on May 18, 2017, President Trump tweeted, “This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!”

The president was referring to a new Inquisition, headed by Special Inquisitor Robert Mueller, appointed the previous day. Had Trump made a “pact” (collusion) with “the devil” (Russia)? If so he would technically be a wizard, not a witch. But the “witch hunt” rubric is satisfactory for describing what is occurring.

Previous Inquisitors have been Lawrence Walsh and Kenneth Starr. Walsh investigated the Iran-Contra affair. He submitted his final report on August 4, 1993. [2] Kenneth Starr was initially appointed to investigate the “suicide” death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster and the Whitewater real estate investments of Bill Clinton. After several years of investigation, Starr filed the Starr Report. [3]

Making a pact with the devil (colluding with Russia) is common in cases of witchcraft. For instance, the devil sometimes visits afflicted persons, either in person or speaking to them through the mouth of another, “and he promises that, if they will agree to his counsels, he will do for them whatever they wish.” [4]

In just such a way, the devil may have visited Donald Trump and promised him the presidency in return for agreeing to his (Russia’s) counsels. And so a Special Inquisitor was appointed to investigate.

Undoubtedly, Inquisitor Mueller is dusting off now a copy of the Malleus Maleficarum (Witches Hammer), the standard guide book for witch hunts, due to the serious nature of the case.

We can glean from the Witches Hammer just how the Inquisition is likely to proceed. It is advised therein that the Inquisitor “need not require any writ, or demand that the action be contested.” This thereby disallows “all dilatory exceptions, appeals and obstructions, the impertinent contentions of pleaders and advocates, and the quarrels of witnesses.” [4] In other words, no defense attorneys for President Trump are allowed during the Inquisition.

The Witches Hammer outlines three circumstances which can justify the opening of an Inquisition: (1) an open accusation, in which case the Law of Talion would apply to the accuser if the accused was found not guilty; (2) secret accusation (informers), which would be the “anonymous sources” in the Trump “witchcraft” case; and (3) widespread reports of “witchcraft”, i.e., the constant “news” insinuations about Trump and Russia. (Further background: Witch Hunt Proceedings, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, July 28, 2017.)

If there is any open accusation (number 1, above), the Inquisitor is advised by the Malleus Maleficarum to persuade the accuser to change his status to informer (number 2, above). This is urged because “the deeds of witches in conjunction with devils are done in secret, and the accuser cannot in this case, as in others, have definite evidence by which he can make his statements good.” There is also the “grave danger that is incurred by an accuser”, i.e., the Law of Talion as well as possible revenge by the “witch”. [4]

Pertinent to the Inquisition against Trump, the Inquisitor is advised to inquire if the suspect “had lived in foreign districts, especially in such places as are most frequented by witches…” [4] Inquisitor Mueller will likely take heed of this, since Trump has been known to visit Russia, and Russia lately is being viewed as “the devil.”

When the proceedings are at last finished, the Inquisitor “shall decide whether the fact [witchcraft, a pact with Russian ‘devils’] is fully proven.” [4] At which point, like Walsh and Starr before him, Inquisitor Mueller can issue a lengthy report.

Witnesses In Trump Witch Trial

“The real story is all of the illegal leaks of classified and other information,” tweeted President Donald Trump, on or around March 2, 2017. “It is a total ‘witch hunt!'”

Turning to the Malleus Maleficarum (Witches Hammer) of circa 1484, the official witch hunt guide book, it is found that the devil and/or devils enter into a pact with the witches. This “pact”, in modern terms, is the “collusion.”

In Part II, Question I, Chapter II, of the Witches Hammer we find that the collusion and/or pact is made in two ways: either (1) a solemn ceremony “when witches meet together in conclave on a set day, and the devil appears to them in the assumed body of a man…” or (2) a private meeting, alone, at any hour, with the devil.

The “devil” in our modern developing witch hunt case is Russian President Vladmir Putin and his henchpersons, basically denoted as “Russia.” It is alleged that Donald Trump and possible associates entered into a “pact” (collusion) with “the devil” (Russia).

First it was necessary to determine if witch trial proceedings were warranted. Canon Law was consulted. Three methods were allowed in order to justify proceedings. (Background: Witch Hunt Proceedings, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, July 28, 2017.)

Once the proceedings had been justified, a Special Inquisitor, Robert Mueller, was appointed. He has convened a Court of Oyer and Terminer (meaning, “to hear and determine”).

Inquisitor Mueller must first gather witnesses. How many witnesses will be sufficient? And of what quality must be the witnesses?

In a charge of such gravity as Trump having made a pact (collusion) with the devil (Russia), two witnesses are not sufficient. “For the proof of an accusation ought to be clearer than daylight” in the serious charge of witchcraft. Furthermore, “no one is to be condemned on merely presumptive evidence,” saith the Malleus Maleficarum.

It is allowed that Inquisitor Mueller can compel witnesses to testify under oath, if we are going by the old-time Canon Law. And if, through any “damnable obstinacy”, any shall refuse to testify under oath, such persons shall on that account be considered as witches themselves.

Can Inquisitor Mueller admit any mortal enemies of Trump to appear as witnesses? Nay. For the Canon says, “You must not understand that in this kind of charge a mortal personal enemy may be admitted to give evidence.”

Additionally, there are “other serious degrees of enmity (for women are easily provoked to hatred), which need not totally disqualify a witness, although they render his evidence very doubtful…”

Inquisitor Mueller must take note of “motives of malice” when he considers the testimony of witnesses, in the traditional witch hunt proceedings.

Witch Hunt Proceedings

“Witch Hunt!” tweeted President Donald Trump yesterday. He was noticing a report by Catherine Herridge of Fox News about the Russians having collected and spread negative information about then candidate Trump. Why isn’t this being widely reported? Answer: Phony reporting and fake news, according to the president.

Several times now President Trump has tweeted there is an ongoing witch hunt directed against him. But what are the proceedings for such an exercise?

Turning to the Malleus Maleficarum (Witches Hammer), the standard manual for Witch Hunt proceedings, we find the how-to guide for such:

There are three methods allowed by Canon Law for instituting proceedings. Method number one occurs when someone openly accuses in a court of law that so-and-so is a “witch” (colluder with Russians). Furthermore, the accuser must offer to prove same and must submit him-or-herself to the Law of Talion if they fail to prove the charge. (Law of Talion means the accuser themself suffers the penalty if charge not proven. For example, if witchcraft is not proved, then the accuser themself is burned at the stake.)

Method number two occurs when someone accuses the “witch” but declines to testify. In the case of President Trump, these would be the “anonymous sources” who lay forth information out of “zeal for the faith.”

Method number three occurs when, there being no open accuser nor “anonymous sources”, there is nonetheless “a general report that there are witches” (colluders with Russia) in some town or place. In the case of Donald Trump, this “general report” would be the massive insinuations being made by mainstream “news”.

In the method number two situation of the “anonymous sources”, where the informer “is not ready to be embroiled in the case”, these shall not be subject to the Law of Talion but shall be compelled to testify under guarantee of immunity.

As noted, in the third method of beginning a process of Inquisition – “a general report that there are witches” (colluders with Russia) – the Judge may proceed “since the noise of that report comes often to his ears.”

Imran Awan and Infinitesimals

Disorder! Confusion! On the number line, the indivisibles are the points and the infinitesimals are the “rays” (arrows) extending at each end. Imran Awan is one of the indivisibles, a “point” having in fact no dimension. How can this be? How can a point have no dimension and yet be said to exist?

Such questions are the ponderables. A slew of these points has erupted in the “news”. Various bloggers, YouTubers, and Information Warriors seek – in zero time – to give you the answer to the confusion. “Please! Make some sense of it all!” cry the people.

Imran Awan is a point having zero dimension. And yet he exists! Pakistani-born Imran Awan, an IT (Information Technology) expert, was arrested Tuesday by the FBI at Dulles Airport for alleged bank fraud. He was trying to flee the country for Qatar. [1]

Pakistan’s intelligence network is reportedly the best in the world! Imran Awan, the Pakistani, worked for Deborah Wasserman Schultz, Nancy Pelosi, and reportedly dozens of Democratic congressmen and women. [1] And then Awan gets nabbed just as he is about to flee the United States!

The problem with instantaneous time is, as you approach the instant you get a “division by zero” error: After all, instantaneous time means essentially “no time”, and how fast can you be traveling in “no time”? Yet various bloggers, YouTubers, and Information Warriors are valiantly seeking to report “the answer” for how fast the indivisible point, Imran Awan, may have been traveling.

Adding to the confusion is an ongoing time acceleration as the weekend approaches. The closer we get to the Friday endpoint, the faster the “news” accelerates.

McCain Rises From the Dead!

“Let no man write my epitaph,” warns the movie from 1960 (starring Burl Ives). And now, almost immediately after Ersjdamoo’s Blog wrote the epitaph for Senator John McCain, the feisty Arizonan has risen from the dead!

Reuters reports that Senator John McCain will make a return to the U.S. capitol today from his Arizona deathbed. He is riled up about the vote to supplant the 2010 Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. [1]

Also riled up is President Donald Trump, who seems to share the same temperamental disposition as McCain. In the past 24 hours, Trump, via Twitter, has “hit the ceiling” about “news” coverage from The Washington Post:

  • “So many stories about me in the @washingtonpost are Fake News.”
  • “The Amazon Washington Post fabricated the facts on my ending massive, dangerous, and wasteful payments to Syrian rebels fighting Assad…..”
  • “Is Fake News Washington Post being used as a lobbyist weapon against Congress…”

The Kindle Fire tablet, an Amazon device, prominently urges users to subscribe to The Washington Post. Both Amazon and the Post are owned by Jeff Bezos. Lately the Kindle Fire is selling digital Post subscriptions for an introductory $1 per month! Contrast that with digital Washington Times subscriptions offered at about $10 per month, and you will see one way the Washington Post is being propped up.

Another way The Washington Post is being propped up is courtesy of Hollywood, USA, now filming a movie tentatively titled “The Post.” Return with us to the glory years of the 1970s, when the Post supposedly had a lot to do with the so-called “Pentagon Papers”. (Really they were the CIA Papers and The New York Times had more to do with them.)

Remember, nostalgia buffs, those good (bad) old days of the 1970s (before Internet) when the press had a suzerain monopoly? Remember the overwhelming control over peoples’ minds? Maybe Washington Post also can rise from the dead! Then we will be in Hallelujah Land and Hillary Clinton shall guide us!

McCain’s Epitaph

The question at this point is, What would be a suitable epitaph for Senator John McCain, recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer?

We know from Kyle Odom’s list of noteworthy Martians that McCain is not a Martian. Nonetheless McCain is extremely martial, i.e., a war hawk. Given that Senator Al Franken has already laid claim to “Giant of the Senate”, here is my entry for John McCain’s epitaph:

Here lies John McCain
Not a Martian, but a martial man 

In yesterday’s blog entry it had been noticed how one of the senators looks a lot like the X-Files Senator Richard Matheson, who helped Fox Mulder find the truth. That X-Files look-alike has now been identified as Senator John Cornyn, the current Senate Majority Whip. Cornyn is not on Kyle Odom’s list of Noteworthy Martians.

The New Moon which arrived yesterday signals a new phase. Intensity of propaganda against Russia has grown, perhaps to fill the gap left by warmonger McCain. Jared Kushner, son-in-law of President Trump, is scheduled to testify before closed sessions of Senate and House intelligence committees. Because the sessions are closed, the representatives will not be preening for the cameras. Closed sessions also means “anonymous sources” crap will be appearing in mainstream “news”, supposedly telling us what really happened in the closed sessions.

Battle for “Giant of the Senate” Title

It has been learned that Senator Al Franken has written a book in which he vies for the coveted “Giant of the Senate” title. This flies in the face of Reuters’ tentative conferral of “Giant of the Senate” upon John McCain. (Background: McCain, Giant of the Senate, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, July 21, 2017.)

Franken’s book is titled, “Al Franken, Giant of the Senate.” However Reuters has reported that Senator John McCain’s colleagues perceive him as a giant of the Senate. [1]

But, in light of Franken’s book, were McCain’s colleagues secretly saying that McCain is a big joke? Franken’s book reportedly “Flips the classic born-in-a-shack rise to political office tale on its head,” wrote Louise Erdrich of The New York Times. “I skipped meals to read this book – also unusual – because every page was funny.” [2] The book is a big joke. Is that also being implied about John McCain by his colleagues?

When Senator Ted Kennedy was at death’s door, they began calling him “The Lion of the Senate.” Now a similar epitaph is being prepared for John McCain. But Al Franken disputes the title.

Other senators are also likely envious of the title. They themselves yearn to be called “Giant of the Senate.” With a New Moon having arrived today at approximately 4:45 am CDT, a new phase in the ongoing Wrestlemania is indicated. This coming Monday, Wrestlemania is scheduled to feature a bout between Jared Kushner, son-in-law of President Donald Trump, and members of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Savvy sports fans know the real action is not about Kushner but about various senators subtly jockeying for position of “Giant of the Senate.”

Says Senator Blank, “(Ahem), you can see by my bearing that it is I who deserve the title.”

One of these senators looks to me a lot like the X-Files Senator Richard Matheson, who took a liking to Fox Mulder. After the X-Files were shut down in 1994, Matheson prompted Mulder to visit the Arecibo observatory in Puerto Rico to continue his search for the truth. [3] Offhand I don’t recall which specific senator looks like the X-Files Senator Matheson, nor do I know if he is on the Senate Intelligence Committee.
