    And yes, he most likely REALLY DOES THINK THAT!!! And some of the crackpot “Sovereign Citizen” loonies still think that he will be Inaugurated as the 19th President on March 4th.

    Under hashtags like #19thpresident (which has more than 235,000 views), or #march4th (which has more than 1.4 million views) TikTok users are propagating the idea that an obscure 1871 act made the United States a corporation and not a federal government, thus rendering any laws passed after that year moot and U.S. citizens not subject to them. According to this theory, the United States will revert back to its original form on March 4th, the date when presidents were inaugurated prior to the 1933 passage of the 20th amendment. They believe Trump will be sworn in as the 19th president of the United States. (The 18th president, Ulysses S. Grant, served between 1869 and 1877, or the time period when those who cling to this theory believe the United States “became” a “corporation.”)

    This conspiracy theory stems from the principles of the sovereign citizen movement, a fringe movement predicated on a slew of bizarre legal interpretations and theories aimed at “proving” that U.S. citizens are not subject to any laws passed after 1871. There has historically been some minor overlap between the sovereign citizen movement and the QAnon community, says Mike Rothschild, a QAnon expert and author of the book World’s Worst Conspiracies. ” These are people who think that through legal chicanery they can free themselves of U.S. laws and open up huge bank accounts that only they can access,” he says. “These ideas aren’t a million miles from Q, or from the affinity frauds that led up to it. It’s all about believing yourself [to be] above the law and special and ‘chosen’ in ways that normal law-abiding citizens don’t know about.”

    The only “Lawyers’ Dilemma” his eventual counsel will face is whether they really want to go to the trouble to take him to court to get paid what he owes them…

    That mental case in Nevada that, with the help of a number of other Crazies, stood off Federal authorities when they tried to confiscate his cattle for non-payment of grazing fees should have been arrested, tried and convicted on the spot – then this “sovereign citizen” nonsense would have been settled; over and done with ages ago!

    But they had GUNS! I’ve been told.

    Strange how law enforcement doesn’t have ANY TROUBLE dealing with people of color who are “armed”, but white ranchers and their white fellow “terrorists” are another thing altogether.

    Well, the spilling of “white” blood has always been “different”, I guess.

    They impeached him while he was still president. Just doing the trial part in the Senate now. Let the process play out.

    The only “lawyer’s dilemma” is how to collect attorney’s fees from Il Douche.

    Well, if he’s going to insist that he is Still the President, he has no right to contest the Impeachment on grounds that he Lost the election.

    If you are innocent, why do you need so many lawyers?

    He won the job but it didn’t mean anything to him other than the perks. He never did anything except watch Fox and play golf which was safer than when he really did do something. None of that was safe for humanity. He was incompetent, lazy and demented.
