Regardless of which side of the abortion issue any American stands on, SCOTUS conservative jurists have managed to rewrite history.

The ruling reportedly signals a new battle at the polls for future elections. Republicans have won only eight of the last 14 presidential elections and two of those presidents did not win the popular vote, so the president has seemed like more or less a toss-up since the debacle of the Lyndon Johnson presidency.

Historians Rank Every President in history. The votes are in and the POTUS with the lowest score isn't who you might expect.

But then again as they say-  'The jury is still out' - Judgment has not yet been finalized; especially due to information being completed as we speak. The term has been a staple headline in American newspapers for at least 150 years; for example, this from The New York Daily-Times, May 1850: Jury is still out, with no prospect of immediate agreement.

Four Strikes, He's Out

Following the fourth hearing, there was the same number of takeaways. Four strikes and Donald Trump should be out and locked up.

Trump and his team:

Public statements: Americans are giving us so much evidence of election misconduct...  

Private conversations: We’ve got lots of theories. We just don’t have the evidence required.

Joe Biden is old and in shape. But Donald Trump is old, fat, and a traitor.

On June 17 1972 a break-in at Democratic headquarters led by Republican crook Richard Nixon ended with his resignation on 8/5/74.

It was nearly 50 years ago this day, that Tricky Dick showed the GOP to prey on Democracy and the rule of law our founding fathers had meticulously crafted to avoid the circumstances we face today from the Republican Party and the dirty trick they continue to play.

Throw any adjective at it Criminal, brazen, shocking, outrageous, unprecedented, treasonous… etc. None are enough to capture the enormity of what he did to American democracy.

50 years ago, Republican dirty tricks caused the resignation of GOP POTUS Richard "Tricky Dick" Milhous Nixon to resign.

Fifty years after the break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at Washington's Watergate complex, we are still piecing together the story of a crime, and a coverup, that brought down a presidency.
