Why it’s only right to acquit President Trump

Thursday, January 30, 2020, 7:35 am | Randy Thomasson

Should President Donald Trump be removed from office? Your opinion depends on how well you know the law.

Several years ago, I was ticketed by a California Highway Patrol officer on a county road. After assessing the lack of evidence and the government’s money motive, I decided to fight — and won.

Because I was not guilty of speeding. There was no posted speed limit sign, and also no possible way I could have violated the Vehicle Code statute that was erroneously written on my ticket. 

Yet when faced with my overwhelming photographic and video evidence, the judge sided with the CHP officer, who on the second day of the trial, announced a new charge of “driving unsafely.” They saw me as a threat, so they denied me a fair trial.

Things got so bad (really, so corrupt), the final judge I ended up with ruled I was “guilty,” because I “didn’t prove” that I was “driving safely.” Stunned and angry, I told the judge, “This is America. I’m presumed innocent, and the burden of proof is upon the D.A., who’s not even here.” From 30 feet away, I looked the judge in the eye, called her ruling “a miscarriage of justice,” and promised to appeal. Up there on her dais, she had a silent fit.

In my written appeal, I documented how the court committed more than a dozen legal errors. Ultimately, since I had provided ample “evidence” that I was willing to take this corrupt denial of my rights to the full State Court of Appeal, the local court’s appellate division focused solely on the error that was the least damaging to them, and reversed my conviction. I got all my ticket money and insurance rate hikes back. I had beaten the beast!

So, you’ll understand why I’m keenly aware of the House Democrats’ impeachment charade. Because the congressional Democrats blew it on both process and substance

PROCESS: The U.S. House Democrats committed so many errors with their hearings, their subpoenas, their witnesses, and their impeachment articles. President Trump’s attorneys on the Senate floor have painstakingly delineated these violations. In essence, “the ball” wasn’t correctly thrown by the U.S. House, so it couldn’t “be caught” by the U.S. Senate. Therefore, the House Democrats’ impeachment articles are defective on their face.

SUBSTANCE: What the U.S. Constitution calls “separation of powers,” including the constitutional right of presidents to conduct foreign policy, the Democrats call “abuse of power,” without naming a single federal statute that the President allegedly violated. And what the U.S. Supreme Court calls “executive privilege,” which is the right of presidents to not provide Congress with confidential White House documents, the Democrats call “obstruction of Congress.” Their two impeachment charges are constitutionally baseless.

In other words, the congressional Democrats are NOT supporting and defending the written federal laws and the written U.S. Constitution, and they’ve made themselves HIGHER than the President and our Constitution. This is both lawless and corrupt, and is exactly what our mostly Christian founding fathers warned against when they created a government of reliable, written laws, not a lawless government of power-hungry people. For these reasons, President Trump should be acquitted of the two groundless charges against him.

Hate evil, love good;
Establish justice in the gate.

Why I oppose the impeachment of President Donald Trump

Wednesday, December 18, 2019, 10:17 am | Randy Thomasson

On this historic day, when the impeachment power of Congress is blatantly misused by the ruling Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives, here is what I told the media in a SaveCalifornia.com news release. I hope it’ll help you as you talk about it too.

Why independent voter Randy Thomasson opposes Trump’s impeachment
“Adam Schiff of Glendale and Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco should be embarrassed to proceed, since they have neither probable cause nor overwhelming evidence of any crime.”

Sacramento, California (December 18, 2019) — In light of today’s expected vote of the U.S. House of Representatives to impeach President Donald Trump, Randy Thomasson, an independent voter and president of SaveCalifornia.com, a leading family issues organization promoting moral virtues for the common good, has issued the following statement: 

“If you were falsely charged with a crime, you’d demand due process and evidence. Unfortunately, we’re seeing neither of these ethical and constitutional rights in the House Democrats’ impeachment push against President Donald Trump.

“‘Abuse of power’ is a fact-free charge, since U.S. presidents are permitted tremendous latitude in their relations with other countries. For President Trump to ask the new Ukraine leader to demonstrate his anti-corruption campaign agenda by investigating how former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, famously enriched themselves in Ukraine, was not only permissible, it was the right thing to do. Ironically, it’s the House Democrats who are abusing their power by providing no evidence at all that President Trump committed any crime, yet they’re still trying to reverse an election through impeachment.

“‘Obstruction of Congress,’ the second empty charge, is only because the Trump Administration refused to testify and to provide confidential information that the House Democrats’ “impeachment inquiry” demanded. Yet numerous presidents, both Democrats and Republicans, have both claimed and used executive privilege, based on constitutional separation of powers. The U.S. Supreme Court has not opined that this is ‘obstruction,’ so neither should the ruling Democrats.

“Impeachment leaders Adam Schiff of Glendale and Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco should be embarrassed to proceed, since they have neither probable cause nor overwhelming evidence of any crime committed by President Trump. This unconstitutional act is likely to backfire on them politically. Perhaps it already has, since independent voters oppose impeachment 49% to 34%.

“As a registered independent, I wasn’t able to vote for Trump, but I am morally obligated to oppose the Democrats’ impeachment charade due to lack of evidence. Because evidence is the only fair standard for charging or convicting anybody.”

— end —

Woe to those who draw iniquity with cords of vanity,
And sin as if with a cart rope;
That say, “Let Him make speed and hasten His work,
That we may see it;
And let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come,
That we may know it.”
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!
Woe to men mighty at drinking wine,
Woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink,
Who justify the wicked for a bribe,
And take away justice from the righteous man!

Isaiah 5:18-23
