The Signs of the New World Order can only be seen by those who Dare to Look and have the Guts that it Takes to Speak on or about it , it is clearly Visible to those who are willing to take the Risk against the New World Order . Inlight of everything ellegal that Trump and his Cohorts have been able to Accomplish thus far , his Defeat in the Twenty Twenty Presidential Election is why their was a 1-6-2021 for it was a unexpected setback to the Time Table of the New World Order and it Showed to all that Dared and had the Courage to Expose a changing of the Gaurds of Democracy and have it replaced with a Supposedly Bloodless Coup . The Reasons why Trump was not Impeached by the Republican Senate and the Reason why Trump has not been Arrested for Treasonous acts against the United States of America is Solely because the New World Order is still alive and unlike the Results of the Presidential Election of Two Thousand the Republican Controlled Supreme Court could not Help Trump Steal a Presidential Election that he Legally LOST .

those lawyers need to be prosecuted if they find out that Trump sold the info and there is a chance that he already has , starting with the Saudi during the golf tournament no doubt he showed them the goods.

Bryan Jackson says:

Speaking of classified documents, have you read the transcript of Trump's last phone call with Putin that was just released by the White House today? Rather shocking to say the least! (Note: It's a little bit long, but well worth reading all the way through.)

WHITE HOUSE PRESS RELEASE: TRANSCRIPT OF TRUMP'S FINAL GOODBYE TO PUTIN FROM WHITE HOUSE – ENDS IN TEARS!

Date: Jan 19, 2021 – Donald Trump's last full day in the White House as President of the United States (POTUS). What follows is a transcript of Trump's final phone conversation with the President of Russia – Vladimir Putin – in a call made that same day.

SCENE [Trump is finishing packing boxes as, after his Jan 6 coup attempt against the U.S. government failed, he hurriedly and frantically prepares to move out of White House. He takes a break from packing to call Putin and say goodbye as well as get any last minute instructions from him.]

Call begins at 5:07 EST.

Trump: (slightly out of breath due to his exertions) Hello Vlad, are you there? Uhh…can you hear me okay? Uhh…hello? Hello? (turns to his aide) There doesn't seem to be anyone there. (turns back to phone) Hello? (finally hears Putin’s voice on the phone) Okay, that's better. So Vlad, I just wanted to call you and…uhh…tell you goodbye from your favorite president, well…uhh…other than yourself, that is…uhh…me, of course…uhh…from the White House one last time. But…uhh…before I do I…uhh…I wanna tell you that I got all the top secret documents on America’s nuclear forces like you asked for, but…uhh…Vlad, is there anything else you can think of?

Putin: (speaking with Russian accent) O ya! Almost forgot tell you, make sure remember grab folder on French President Macron. Never know, may come in handy when Russian need blackmail him. You know, like did you.

Trump: (in low, meek voice) Okay…uhh…well, sorry about that NATO thing, Vlad. You know…uhh…well, you know I did my best to break them apart, like in forever, you know, but you know…uhh…well…uhh…you know things just didn't work out for the both of us like we had hoped they would, and so Vlad…uhh…well, well Vlad it looks like they will be getting back together again with the US soon…uhh…soon after I leave office. So sorry Vlad, but…uhh…Vlad, can you ever forgive me for that, Vlad? Can you?

Putin: Is no problem. Just get me secret documents and will be forgiven.

Trump: (in a relieved voice) Oh thank you so, so much, sir. I’m glad you are so understanding. (now in more confident tone of voice and sucking up to Putin) See, it’s just like I told my followers when I was running for president, Vlad, I told them “look at Putin, such a strong man…err, I mean leader. Not weak like Obama or Hilary. The US needs a strong man…err, I mean leader like Putin as president". (Trump's voice now changes to more subdued tone) By the way, Vlad, when can I expect to get paid for all these…uhh…you know, all these secret documents and…uhh…other stuff I'm getting for you?

Putin: Soon, very soon. But first, I need you to do me one last…umm…how you once say Zelensky…umm…"small favor"? Is small, very small. Should not be problem for you, no problem at all. Just small favor, like how you say you need from Zelensky, no?

Trump: (in slightly exasperated tone of voice) What is it now, Vlad? I’ve done almost everything you asked me to do so far, and…uhh…well, I'm really busy at the moment, so…uhh…what more could you possibly want from me now, Vlad? What? What? (calms down a bit) But…uhh…you know…uhh…just ask me and I will see if I can help you out again.

Putin: (in soothing, calm voice) Will be easy piece cake for you. You love cake, no? Hmmm…

Trump: You know I love cake, Vlad. So what's the one last small favor you want from me then?

Putin: And you love being on TV, right?

Trump: Right! You know I love being on TV, Vlad! (now with a bit of impatience in his voice) So please tell me, Vlad, what's this last small favor you want from me?

Putin: Relax, is easy. When I invade Ukraine, you simply go on TV and tell world how “brilliant” is that invasion, right? As you Americans like to say, "easy peasy, nice and breezy", no?

Trump: (excitedly) Wow! That's it! That is easy! That's so, so easy! As my son would say, "love it!" (calms down and says rather soberly) Uhh…Vlad, sir, I will be more than…uhh…happy, sir, to do that for you, sir…uhh…especially considering all that you've done for me these past five years. So many good memories. Such good memories like no one in the whole wide world has ever seen or had before, Vlad. (now with a melancholy tone in his voice) Why, just thinking about all the good times we had together during those years brings tears to my eyes! (pause as Trump chokes up, sobs briefly, and almost breaks down into full tears, but holds it together long enough to blurt out) And sir, I would just like to tell you how much of a pleasure it has been doing business with you, sir! And sir, I hope one day we will get the chance to work together again, and soon, sir, soon! (Trump then totally loses it, breaks down crying, sobbing in tears on the phone as he jabbers) I just can't believe (sob) believe it, that (sob) it will (sob) soon (sob) all be over! I just (sob) can't believe it! I just (sob) can't believe it! (sob) Please, Vlad, please, please tell me what to do! Please help me, Vlad, (sob) please help me! (sobs and cries some more)

Putin: (clicks teeth and then, with Trump still crying in background, says in a drawn out, somewhat contemptuous tone) There, there now, don't cry, we’ll see, we’ll see what happens. But trust me, as you always have, it will all work itself out in end. (switches to a more cheerful, upbeat tone) Here's advice. First, need work more on your coup skills. Not quite there yet. Swing bit more to hard right and, before you know it, Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner! You are back in White House again…umm…and all will be happy, no, and…umm…we will be back in business together again, hmm! (pauses, and now that he has gotten Trump to calm down a bit and stop crying, speaks in a low, solemn voice intended to get Trump off the phone) And now…umm…if you will excuse me, I have…umm…how you say, an empire…umm…yes, yes I have an empire I need attend to, to rebuild, and so…umm…so am afraid I must say to you…umm…one last time…ummm…my dearest Trump…(now speaking in Russian) “do svidaniya”.

Trump: (pulls himself back together again long enough for one last, long, heartfelt goodbye) From the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, sir! Thank you for your words of encouragement and good advice! And thank you for all you've done for me time and time again! Thank you, thank you, thank you! (Trump puts hand over receiver of phone and asks aide, "what's a 'dough spin Tanya?'" to which aide replies "I think he's telling you goodbye in Russian, sir", Trump removes hand from phone and says) And a dough spin Tanya to you, sir, a dough spin Tanya to you!

Closing Note: And so, with those final words of 'dough spin Tanya', the last call Donald Trump ever made from the White House as President of the United States to the President of Russia – Vladimir Putin – came to an end.

Pamela Franklin says:

francis bubbletrousers. says:

Carlos P. Jr says:

Indictments when are we going to have the Indictments? Lock him up!

Bonnie Urso says:

Lock him up and anyone who wants to be locked up with him !
They can all stay at our 5star Trump Run Gitmo!

Robert Russo says:

Former president Donald Trump remains locked in a New York detention centre communicated as Rikers Island prison where he has been allowed very short periods of leave. It has been verified that a naked female child has been identified as being supplied to his prison cell as a clandestine component to his scapegoating and victimising innocent people in The United States of America and a number of other nations by setting them up with unwitting crimes involving child pornography and in some cases child molesting. Donald Trumps victims fall into categories of society subgroups and personal enemies that comprise mostly of his life long unprocessed emotional baggage and people that got in his way.

Bonnie Urso says:

Steven Alcorn says:

Why were the documents not sifted through before they were left in the Trump's care at the time he left office? I hope this problem never happens again. I know if I was in office I would never remove that many documents from my workplace.

These irrelevant lying obsessed screwball losers NEVER LEARN, and fake news babbles that people defending Trump are "basically desperate" now.

What WACKOS. All Trump haters ARE wackos.

The Blessings Of Jesus says:

God has Trump's back. " By this I know you are pleased with me, that my enemies do not triumph over me." Trump Will TRIUMPH in Jesus's Name!

The Father, Son and Holy Spirit has The Final Say and NOTHING WILL HARM PRESIDENT TRUMP.

The Blessing and Suffering of the Godly

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

Blessed is he who considers the poor;
The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive,
And he will be blessed on the earth;
**You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies** ( The Father, Son and Holy Spirit WIIL NOT ALLOW TRUMP TO BE DELIVERED TO THEIR WILL TO STOP HIM. )
The Lord will strengthen him on his bed of illness;
You will sustain him on his sickbed.

I said, “Lord, be merciful to me;
Heal my soul, for I have sinned against You.”
My enemies speak evil of me:
“When will he die, and his name perish?”
And if he comes to see me, he speaks lies.
His heart gathers iniquity to itself;
When he goes out, he tells it.

All who hate me whisper together against me;
Against me they]devise my hurt. ( ALL the Trump haters for 6 plus years. )
“An evil disease,” they say, “clings to him.
And now that he lies down, he will rise up no more.”
Even my own familiar friend in whom I trusted,
Who ate my bread,
Has lifted up his heel against me.

But You, O Lord, be merciful to me, and raise me up,
That I may repay them.
By this I know that You are well pleased with me,
Because my enemy does not triumph over me. As for me, You uphold me in my integrity,
And set me before Your face forever.

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel
From everlasting to everlasting!
Amen and Amen.

john smith says:

I believe you. I must stupid.

Real deal Will says:

Anytime their is a shooter/lunatic it should be thoroughly investigated to determine what are the factors involved that lead these people down this dark path. I know Republicans don't want to know the truth but I don't care. I want answers and solutions. Lead, follow or get out of the way!!!

Allynna McCleod says:

Its great that GOP cultists, err conservatives in Congress are standing firmly with Trump after these revelations, even if they sadly can't be removed from office as traitors, those standing for reelection in November have painted a nice big target on their back for their Democratic opponents to take aim at.
