Donald Trump Your President?

What’s wrong with Donald John Trump? As with all the presidents, there is just too much power in one person.  Trump is President, President of the United States and President of the United States of America.  It is true that these three offices are found in the Constitution of the United States, but that doesn’t make him your President.  Trump may claim to be President of all the people, but he is really only President of States, the States of the United States and the States of the United States of America.

This is the truth about the American Presidency.  The Article II, Section 1, Clause 5, Office of President was never filled by George Washington and has remained vacant ever since the first Electoral Election made him President of the United States of America.  Washington became President of the United States on April 30, 1789, when he took this oral oath of office: “I, George Washington, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” So Help Me God.”

Washington established the procedure that combines two offices of President when the President of the United States of America takes the oral oath of office of the President of the United States.  This procedure has been followed by all the elected presidents including the most recent Donald J. Trump.  The person elected to the office of President of the United States of America is not required to take any oath before that person exercises any of executive powers of that office.   Article II, Section 1, Clause 8, expressly states that the person who is to execute the duties of the Office of President of the United States must, as George Washington had done, take the oral oath of that office. What follows is the story of how Donald John Trump became President of the two sets of States by doing exactly what George Washington had done 228 years before.

The January 20, 2017 Inauguration Ceremony of Donald John Trump was officiated by Senator Roy Blunt, the Chairman of the Joint Congressional Committee for Inaugural Ceremonies.  He announced that it was to be the forty-fifth inauguration of a President of the United States of America, without admitting that Trump had already held that office since January 6, 2017.  At noon on the 20th day of January, Donald John Trump would take the oral oath of office of President of the United States and he would become President of the United States. Those “United States” were the Article IV States created when the Constitution of September 17, 1787, was ratified by the States of the Confederacy.  The Preamble’s “People of the United States” are the people of the Article IV States.

Senator Blunt incorrectly stated that this would be the fifty-eighth Inauguration of a President of the United States. That figure must have been calculated as one oath per four-year term which would incorrectly produce fifty-eight oral oath terms instead of the correct fifty-seven four-year terms.  Eight Presidents died in office and one resigned which required nine additional oaths of the office of President of the United States.  A total of sixty-six oral oaths of the office of President of the United States can be confirmed by actually counting the oaths required to be taken for every full and partial term of office of President of the United States.  These facts confirm the existence of two offices.

Black’s Law Dictionary, 4th Ed. defines inauguration as, “The act of installing or inducting into office with formal ceremonies, as the coronation of the sovereign, the inauguration of the president or governor, or the consecration of a prelate.  A word applied by the Romans to the ceremony of dedicating a temple, or raising a man to the priesthood, after the augers had been consulted.”  George Washington and the Confederation Congress devised the idea of an inauguration as the means by which two separate offices, President of the United States and President of the United States of America could be joined publicly without detection.

President Richard M. Nixon and Gerald R. Ford

Gerald Rudolph Ford, the man who Richard Milhous Nixon nominated to be his Vice President, became President of the United States, when Nixon had to resign or be impeached, was never elected President or Vice President of  the United States of America.   Immediately after Nixon’s resignation Gerald R. Ford took the following oral oath of office:  “I, Gerald R. Ford, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” So Help Me God.”  Therefore, President Number Thirty-Eight Gerald R. Ford cannot be counted as one of the Presidents of the United States of America.

Gerald R. Ford became “the Vice President,” when he replaced the thirty-ninth Vice President of the United States of America, Spiro Theodore Agnew, who resigned that office on October 10, 1973.  On October 12, 1973, the thirty-seventh President of the United States of America, Richard Milhous Nixon, acting on the authority of Section 2 of the Twenty-fifth Amendment to the Constitution of September 17, 1787, nominated Gerald Rudolph Ford, Jr., to be the fortieth Vice President.

Twenty-fifth Amendment

The Twenty-fifth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States amended Article II, Section 1, Clause 6, of the unadopted Constitution of September 17, 1787.  The original Clause 6 was to apply to Presidents and Vice Presidents who were “bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution.”  The start date of July 4, 1790 imposed in Article II, Section 1, Clause 5, caused George Washington to reject the Constitution of September 17, 1787 in favor of the Article II, Section 1, Clause 8, “Constitution of the United States,” which was binding only on the States which had ratified that Constitution.

The United States Senate voted 92 to 3 to confirm Gerald Ford to the office of Vice President on November 27, 1973.  On December 6, 1973, the United States House of Representatives voted 387 to 35 to confirm Gerald R. Ford to the office of Vice President.

Section 2 of the Twenty-fifth Amendment provides that “[W]henever there is a vacancy in the office of Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.”  Gerald R. Ford became Vice President Ford on December 6, 1973, when the House of Representatives voted to confirm him.

Despite the provision in Section 2, within one hour of the House of Representative’s vote to confirm, Gerald R. Ford took and subscribed the Title 5 United States Code Section 3331 oath of office.  That oath is required to be subscribed by every federal government officer and employee except the President.

Richard M. Nixon Resigns

Richard Milhous Nixon resigned the office of President on August 9, 1974.  According to Section 1 of the Twenty-Fifth Amendment, “In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President.”

Donald John Trump Runs for President         

The selection of a presidential candidate begins with State primary elections and ends with the January 20, 2017 inauguration of a President of the United States.  A national federal election took place on November 8, 2016 in which voters who had to register as citizens of the United States cast ballots for electors pledged to vote for presidential candidates representing political parties.  The November 8 election indicated that Donald John Trump would receive 306 electoral votes when the Electoral College Electors convened December 19, 2016, in the fifty States and District of Columbia to prepare and subscribe the Certificates of Vote.

Electoral Counted in Joint Session of Congress

On January 6, 2017, in a joint session of Congress, the President of the Senate, two Senators and two Representatives pretended to count the POTUSA Electoral Votes which had been cast and counted on December 19, 2016, as votes to elect a POTUS.  Some States cast votes for a President of the United States of America and some cast votes for a President of the United States, but no matter who the State’s Electors voted for the official joint session of Congress record will indicate a vote for a President of the United States.

Objections to Electoral Votes

The January 6 Vote count in the Capitol is the official one—the one that counts.  It provided an opportunity for one Senator and one Representative to join in a written objection to any State’s Electoral vote. About a dozen objections were made, but each of them lacked the signature of a Senator.

The Electoral Vote count in the State capitols had become a news worthy event when the Democrat Party members demanded that Trump Electors not cast their vote for Donald John Trump, so that his votes would fall below the 270 needed for his election to the Office of President of the United States of America.

Donald John Trump Follows George Washington’s Precedent

An announcement on January 6 that Donald John Trump had been elected President of the United States of America would surprise everyone to learn that he was just the latest version of a long line of Presidents beginning with George Washington who were elected POTUSA and then took the oral oath to become POTUS.  That revelation might be welcomed by an iconoclastic Donald John Trump.

Electors Limited to Electing President of the United States of America

The so-called Electoral College can cast ballots for two offices and only these two offices—President and Vice President of the United States of America.  The stated purpose of the joint session of Congress is to “verify the certificates and count the votes of the Electors,” yet Senate President Joseph Biden can’t correctly identify for what office the votes are cast.

Partial Transcript of January 6, 2017 Joint Session of Congress to Count Electoral Votes

Mister Joseph Biden:

Mister Speaker, members of Congress, pursuant to the Constitution and the laws of the United States, the Senate and the House of Representatives are meeting in a joint session to verify the certificates and count the votes of the Electors of the several States for President and Vice President of the United States.

After the ascertainment has been had that the certificates are authentic and correct in form, the tellers will count and make a list of the votes cast by the Electors in the several States.

The tellers on the part of the two houses will take their places at the clerk’s desk.

The tellers will dispense with the reading of the formal portion of the Certificates. After ascertaining that the certificates are regular in form and authentic, the tellers will announce the votes cast by the Electors of each State beginning with the State of Alabama.

Teller Roy Blunt:

“Mister President, the Certificate of the Electoral vote of the State of Alabama seems to be regular in form and authentic it appears, therefore, that Donald J.

Teller Amy Kabochar:

“Mister President, the Certificate of the Electoral vote of the State of New Hampshire seems to be regular in form and authentic it appears, that Hillary Clinton of the State of New York received four votes for President and Michael R. Pence of the Commonwealth of Virginia received four votes for Vice President.

This was incorrect. Hillary Clinton of the State of New York received four votes for President and Michael R. Pence of the Commonwealth of Virginia received four votes for Vice President.

Mister President, the official script was incorrect.

The tally is correct.

The Certificate of the Electoral vote of the State of New Hampshire seems to be regular in form and authentic it appears, that Hillary Clinton of the State of New York received four votes for President and Tim Kaine of the Commonwealth of Virginia received four votes for Vice President.

Mister Roy Blunt: Mister President, the undersigned, Roy Blunt and Amy Kobachar, tellers on the part of the Senate, Greg Harper and Robert A. Brady, tellers on the part of the House of Representatives report the following as the result of the ascertainment and counting of the Electoral Vote for President and Vice President of the United States for the term beginning on the twentieth day of January, 2017.

Mister Joseph Biden: The state of the count of the vote for President of the United States, as delivered to the President of the Senate, is as follows:

January 20, 2017 Inauguration of Donald John Trump Proves President is Both POTUSA and POTUS

What follows is a partial transcription of the beginning of the Inauguration ceremony of Donald John Trump as President of the United States:

Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, the Chairman of the Joint Congressional Committee for Inaugural Ceremonies, the Honorable Roy Blunt.

Chairman Roy Blunt: Mister President, Mister Vice President, Mister President-Elect, Mister Vice-President-Elect, Ladies and Gentlemen,

Welcome to the inauguration of the forty-fifth President of the United States of America.  Today, the legislative, the executive, the judicial branches of our constitutional government come together for the fifty-eight inauguration of the President of the United States.   Millions of people all over the world will watch and will listen to this event.

Donald John Trump became President of the United States of America on January 6, 2017 Without Any Ceremony

Senator Roy Blunt correctly stated that the inauguration ceremony was for a President of the United States of America. Donald John Trump became President of the United States of America on January 6, 2017, when he won the Electoral Vote count in Congress. Senator Blunt incorrectly identified Donald Trump as the forty-fifth President of the United States of America.   Counting Grover Cleveland twice Donald John Trump is the forty-fourth President of the United States of America.

Gerald R. Ford Was Never Elected President or Vice President of the United States of America

 

 

There is one President of the United States who was never elected by the Electoral College to be a President of the United States of America or a Vice President of the United States of America.  Gerald R. Ford was that President. Section 1 of the Twenty-Fifth Amendment simply states, “the Vice President shall become President.”   The Office of President has been vacant since George Washington could not qualify for that office until July 4, 1790.  After that date, Washington failed or refused to swear or affirm and subscribe the Article VI oath, “to support this Constitution.”

United States Senate Chooses the President and Vice President of the United States of America to be President and Vice President of the United States

The Constitution of September 17, 1787, as amended, states in Article I, Section 3, Clause 4, that “[T]he Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no Vote, unless they be equally divided.” In the following Clause, the Constitution confirms that the Senate chooses the President and Vice President of the United States–“[T]he Senate shall chuse their other Officers, and also a President pro tempore, in the Absence of the Vice President, or when he shall exercise the Office of President of the United States.”

The story of the first inauguration is told in the records the United States Senate. Shortly after the April 6, 1789 Electoral Vote count in a joint session of Congress, Vice President of the United States of America, John Adams visited the Senate where he was immediately recognized to be President of the Senate.  That ceremony was repeated this January 20th when Vice President of the United States of America Michael Richard Pence appeared before the United States Senate, took an oral oath and was accepted without objection as President of the Senate.

Donald John Trump Presidency Presents Unique Learning Opportunity

The inauguration of Donald John Trump presents the unprecedented opportunity to reveal this truth about the American Presidency to the rest of the world. Electors appointed according to laws enacted by the State legislatures of the United States of America Union elect a President and a Vice President of the United States of America for a term of four years.  If the Senate makes no objection, the President of the United States of America is allowed to take the oral oath of office of President of the United States and the Vice President of the United States of America is accepted as Vice President of the United States and President of the Senate.

On Inauguration Day, Senator Roy Blunt publicly combined the Office of the President of the United States of America and the Office of President of the United States so skillfully only my Students fully understood what he had just said. The three branches of the federal government, the audience within earshot and everyone viewing or listening got a dose of the truth about the American Presidency.

The United States Is a Federal Republic    The United States of America Is a Confederacy

The United States of America is not a republic it is a Confederacy of States which have delegated some, but not all their sovereignty to the United States in Congress assembled under the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777.  The name “United States” is used to describe territory ceded to and subject the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States of America. The name “United States” is derived from the name, “United States of America” for the proprietor of that territory.

The President of the United States of America Has Always Been Elected By Electors Representing the States of the Confederacy   

All the elected Presidents from George Washington to Donald John Trump have been elected according to Article II, Section 1, Clauses 1, 2 & 3 of the Constitution of September 17, 1787, and the Twelfth Amendment after June 15, 1804.  Electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote by Ballot for two Persons” for their election to the Offices of President and Vice President of the United States of America.

George Washington Made Donald John Trump’s Electoral Election Possible

Washington signed the Constitution of September 17, 1787 as the President of the May 25, 1787 Constitutional Convention and as a Delegate from the Commonwealth of Virginia to acknowledge and authenticate “this Constitution” as the product of the Convention.  After he was elected President of the United States of America, Washington never subscribed his name to any document that bound him to the Article VI oath “to support this Constitution.”  Washington was thus, freed from any obligation “to support this Constitution.”  Constrained only by the oral oath of office of the President of the United States Washington set out to make the American Presidency in his own image.

Congress has been rigging the Electoral Votes for President of the United States of America as Votes for President of the United States Since the Election of George Washington

Congress has been pretending to count the Electoral Votes for President of the United States of America as votes for President of the United States since April 6, 1789, in order to give the appearance of an election of George Washington to the Office of President of the United States. The President of the United States is the officer with the duty to sign Bills which he approves or return them with his objections. Combining the office of President of the United States with the office of President of the United States of America is a unique American invention in which George Washington was a willing accomplice.
CONCLUSION

 

Washington was already President of the United States of America, when he took this oral oath on April 30, 1789:  “I, George Washington, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” So Help Me God.”  That part of the oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” applies to those States which were awaiting a growth in population that would qualify them for admission into the United States of America Union.

Donald John Trump like Washington was already President of the United States of America when he took his oral oath on January 20, 2017:  “I, Donald John Trump, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” So Help Me God.”  That part of the oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” now applies to  the federal states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, America Samoa, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands and applies, as well, to the federal territory within the States of the United States of America Union.

The Electoral Elections required by the Constitution of September 17, 1787 were rigged so that the election of the President and Vice president of the United States of America would be completed by April of 1789, which would be more than a year before the Article II, Section 1, Clause 5, “fourteen Years a Resident within the United States” eligibility requirement could be met by anyone in America.  Fourteen Years from July 4, 1776 would be July 4, 1790.  Washington and the Confederation Congress rigged the Inauguration Ceremony to hide their creation of a presidential dictatorship for a term of four years.

Washington’s joining of his April 6, 1789 election to the executive office of President of the United States of America with the taking of the oral oath of office of President of the United States caused the American public to mistakenly apply the oral oath to three different offices and to satisfaction of the Article VI, Clause 3, command “to support this Constitution.”  All that was accomplished by the April 30, 1789 Inauguration Ceremony.  The deception of the inaugural has persisted till the present. Very few Americans are aware of the elaborate scheme to extend the federal government’s power over its employees and federal residents to the non-federal people on private property located within the States of the United States of America.

I have exposed most of the government plots to take control of your life and I have established the true meaning of the Constitution of September 17, 1787. I have not withheld, from my students, anything I have discovered about federal law and government.  Donald John Trump need not be your president.  Being free means presiding over your own life unfettered from the meddling of government employees. Keeping your freedom requires constant education in law and government.  For the first time in the history of America, men and women are truly free to separate themselves from government despite any prior entanglements which may have been made provided that person is willing to  learn the law and the true history of the government.
