Till the hour when the trump of the Archangel shall sound to announce that Time shall be no more, the name of Lafayette shall stand enrolled upon the annals of our race, high on the list of the pure and disinterested benefactors of mankind.
Winds, storms, tempests, thunders, lightnings, raging flames, dissolving elements, the archangel's trump smiting the silence of the tomb, the universal air blazing with disastrous splendors, "the tribes of the earth mourning and beating their breasts," the wicked calling on rocks and hills to fall upon them and cover them, the shouts of the saved, the howlings of the damned – all, all will then utter one voice, all will pierce our very souls with their tones; all will repeat these words, "God alone is great, and God's salvation alone deserved the cares, toils, sacrifices of an immortal spirit."richard fuller
[President trump] expressed frustration that the United States continued to impose sanctions on [Russia] for its malign behavior. But his national security team knew better — such actions had to be taken, to hold Moscow accountable. This isn’t the work of the so-called deep state. It’s the work of the steady state.anonymous
Average working people need more fresh starts. Big corporations, banks, and Donald trump need fewer.Robert Reich
One source recounted stories of employees in select State Department bureaus decorating their cubicles with pro-trump imagery, so as to avoid suspicion. If the Deep State didn’t exist before, trump has brought it into being.Abigail Tracy

While former trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and others have been prosecuted for lying to the FBI over communications and actions that appear to be perfectly legal, the FBI and the rest of the deep state have been allowed so far to thumb their noses at Congress and the American people without any serious repercussions.mark penn

The warriors that fought for their country, and bled, Have sunk to their rest; the damp earth is their bed; No stone tells the place where their ashes repose, Nor points out the spot from the graves of their foes. They died in their glory, surrounded by fame, And Victory's loud trump their death did proclaim; They are dead; but they live in each Patriot's breast, And their names are engraven on honor's bright crest.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
It is quite useless to declare that all men are born free if you deny that they are born good . Guarantee a man's goodness and his liberty will take care of itself. To guarantee his freedom on condition that you approve of his moral character is formally to abolish all freedom whatsoever, as every man's liberty is at the mercy of a moral indictment which any fool can trump up against everyone who violates custom, whether as a prophet or as a rascal.George Bernard Shaw
Farewell the plumed troop, and the big wars, That make ambition virtue! O, farewell! Farewell the neighing steed, and the shrill trump, The spirit-stirring drum, the ear-piercing fife.william shakespeare
There are slave-drivers quietly whipped underground, There bookbinders, done up in boards, are fast bound, There card-players wait till the last trump be played, There all the choice spirits get finally laid, There the babe that's unborn is supplied with a berth, There men without legs get their six feet of earth, There lawyers repose, each wrapped up in his case, There seekers of office are sure of a place, There defendant and plaintiff get equally cast, There shoemakers quietly stick to the last.james russell lowell

When fame 's loud trump hath blown its noblest blast, Though long the sound, the echo sleeps at last; And glory , like the phoenix midst her fires , Exhales her odours, blazes, and expires.
I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption . Behold, I shew you a mystery ; We shall not all sleep , but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound , and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed .
Israeli private intel firm Psy-Group discussed with the trump campaign a proposal to manipulate social media against Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz. For some reason I don't expect this real evidence of collusion to become a Democratic line of attack.Max blumenthal
To be clear, trump opining about Kaepernick or even the President openly discouraging owners from signing Kaepernick would not prove collusion. trump, for purposes of the CBA [collective bargaining agreement], is merely a third party.Michael McCann
The possibility of collusion between trump’s allies and Russian intelligence is much more serious than Watergate. It is a constitutional crisis. It represents a violation of our republic’s most sacred trust.jennifer palmieri
One day Donald trump discovers that he is owned, lock, stock, and roulette wheel, by Lutheran Brotherhood, and must renegotiate his debt load with a committee of silent Norwegians who don't understand why anyone would pay more than $120 for a suit.garrison keillor
The cost of appearing with a bloviating ignoramus is obvious, it seems to me. Donald trump is redundant evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low and you can still intrude into American politics.George Will
Donald trump, who has driven well past the last exit to relevance and peered into something closer to irresponsible here, is tweeting tonight,Brian Williams
It is an assumption that there is always one single dimension for assessing persons and their actions that has canonical priority. This is the dimension of moral evaluation; “good/evil” is supposed always to trump any other form of evaluation, but that is an assumption, probably the result of the long history of the Christianisation and then gradual de-Christianisation of Europe, which one need not make. Evaluation need not mean moral evaluation, but might include assessments of efficiency, ... simplicity, perspicuousness, aesthetic appeal, and so on.raymond geuss
