Looks Bigger and Brighter....

A Supermoon happens when a Full Moon or New Moon coincides with the Moon's closest approach to Earth; also called perigee.

A Super Full Moon looks around 12% to 14% bigger than its counterpart, the Micromoon.

Next Supermoon, December  3. 2017

The next Supermoon will be on December 3, 2017.

The Supermoon on November 14, 2016, was the closest since January 26, 1948. The next time a Full Moon will come even closer to Earth is on November 25, 2034 (dates based on UTC time).

How can Full Moon be in the daytime?
Perigee and Apogee

The Moon's orbit around Earth is not a perfect circle, but elliptical, with one side closer to Earth than the other.

As a result of the Moon's elliptical orbit, the distance between the Moon and Earth varies throughout the month and the year. On average the distance is about 382,900 kilometers (238,000 miles).

The point on the Moon's orbit closest to Earth is called the perigee and the point farthest away is the apogee.

Super Full Moon and Super New Moon

Illustrative comparison of a Supermoon and Micromoon.
According to NASA, a Super Full Moon looks around 12% to 14% bigger than a Micromoon.

When a Full Moon coincides with its closest approach to Earth, it is called a Super Full Moon. A New Moon that takes place when the Moon is around its perigee is known as a Super New Moon.

A Micromoon, on the other hand, is when a Full or a New Moon is farthest from the Earth, around apogee. It's also known as a Minimoon, Mini Full Moon, or a Mini New Moon.

Astronomical terms & definitions
Not an Official Name

Supermoon is not an official astronomical term. It was first coined by an astrologer, Richard Nolle, in 1979. He defined it as ‘a New or a Full Moon that occurs when the Moon is at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in its orbit’. It is not clear why he chose the 90% cut off in his definition.

There are no official rules as to how close or far the Moon must be to qualify as a Supermoon or a Micro Moon. Different outlets use different definitions. Due to this, a Full Moon classified as a Supermoon by one source may not qualify as a Super Full Moon by another.
Supermoon Definition

The following definitions are used at timeanddate.com:

    Supermoon: A Full or New Moon that occurs when the center of the Moon is less than 360,000 kilometers (ca. 223,694 miles) from the center of Earth.
    Micromoon: A Full Moon or New Moon that takes place when the center of the Moon is farther than 405,000 kilometers (ca. 251,655 miles) from the center of Earth.

Technical Name: Perigee-syzygy

The technical term for a Supermoon is perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system. In astronomy, the term syzygy refers to the straight-line configuration of three celestial bodies.

When the Moon is close to the lunar nodes of its path during syzygy, it causes a total solar eclipse or a total lunar eclipse

Because it's  SO  close to Earth, a Super Full Moon looks about 7% bigger than an average Full Moon. When compared to a Micromoon, it looks about 12% to 14% larger.

A Super Full Moon also looks about 30% brighter than a Micro Full Moon and about 16% brighter than an average Full Moon.
Biggest During Winter....

Supermoons during Northern Hemisphere winter months tend to look larger than Supermoons that occur during the rest of the year. At this time of the year, Earth is closer to the Sun. Because of this, the Sun's gravity pulls the Moon closer to Earth, making any winter Super Full Moons look bigger than summer Super Full Moons.
Best at Moonrise

The best time to enjoy a Super Full Moon is after moonrise when the Moon is just above the horizon, weather permitting. At this position, a Super Full Moon will look bigger and brighter than when it's higher up in the sky because you can compare the apparent size of the Moon with elements in the landscape like hills, foliage, and buildings. This effect is called the Moon Illusion.

THATS  NOT  MY  TEXT  -  @JW Insider  :)

I fixed it twice, and each time I checked it, it had stayed the same -- my fix didn't take. I just finally fixed it and it looks like it will stay this time.

The twist on your picture is, of course, from the Superman series, which always included the words:

  • Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. The infant of Krypton is now the Man of Steel: Superman!   -- Superman (1941) - Quotes - IMDb

Thanks for the setup . . . 

The Moon orbits Earth at a speed of 2,288 miles per hour (3,683 kilometers per hour). During this time it travels a distance of 1,423,000 miles (2,290,000 kilometers).
 
Some guns shoot bullets at only 800 miles per hour. So the moon is also "faster than a speeding bullet" and of course it's more powerful than a locomotive. It's odd to think that when NASA sent men to the moon, they were landing on a very fast "bullet."

JWI:

  I checked your math, as I do not believe anybody on the face of it .. and you are right ... a fairly standard rifle bullet travels at approximately 1100 feet per second(fps), which if it were in space with no air resistance and gravitational centers far away that would be about 750 miles per hour.  I picked the 1100 fps as a generalization.

The theme  music from the 1951 "Superman" TV show is on this link.

Where this ties into the conversation is that (notice his yellow belt with the plain belt buckle...) some times when flying at supersonic speed in the atmosphere, the wind catches in his leotards, and he .... *koff* .... "MOONS" the Earth.

... and now you know the REST of the story ... of why Superman wears a long red cape.

      Get ready, skywatchers. The last supermoon of 2019 will be visible in the night sky Wednesday, coinciding with the spring equinox that heralds the start of a new season.
      The March 20 spectacle will be the final of this year’s three back-to-back supermoons. The first was on Jan. 21, and the second — the biggest and brightest supermoon of 2019 — was on Feb. 19.
      A supermoon is a full moon that has reached the closest point to Earth in its monthly elliptical orbit around the planet. As such, supermoons appear larger and brighter in the night sky, though these changes are typically far too subtle to detect.
      Full moons can be observed with the naked eye and don’t require any special equipment. But, for skywatchers who are thwarted by clouds or bad weather, the Virtual Telescope Project, which remotely operates several telescopes in Italy, will livestream the skywatching event online. The broadcast, which will show the supermoon rising over Rome, will begin at 12:45 p.m. ET (16:45 UTC) on Wednesday.

      I found a love for me
      Oh darling, just dive right in and follow my lead
      Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet
      Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me
      'Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
      Not knowing what it was
      I will not give you up this time
      But darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
      And in your eyes, you're holding mine

      [Chorus]
      Baby, I'm dancing in the dark with you between my arms
      Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favourite song
      When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath
      But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight

      [Verse 2]
      Well I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
      She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I'll share her home
      I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets
      To carry love, to carry children of our own
      We are still kids, but we're so in love
      Fighting against all odds
      I know we'll be alright this time
      Darling, just hold my hand
      Be my girl, I'll be your man
      I see my future in your eyes

      [Chorus 2]
      Baby, I'm dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
      Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
      When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautiful
      I don't deserve this, darling, you look perfect tonight

      [Instrumental]

      [Chorus 3]
      Baby, I'm dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
      Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
      I have faith in what I see
      Now I know I have met an angel in person
      And she looks perfect
      I don't deserve this
      You look perfect tonight

      Mama always told me don't you run
      "Don't you run with scissors, son
      You're gonna hurt someone"
      Mama told me look before you leap
      Always think before you speak, and watch the friends you keep

      Stay along the beaten path, never listened when she said

      Sharp edges have consequences, I
      Guess that I had to find out for myself
      Sharp edges have consequences, now
      Every scar is a story I can tell

      Should've played it safer from the start
      Loved you like a house of cards
      Let it fall apart
      But all the things I couldn't understand
      Never could've planned
      They made me who I am
      Put your nose in paperbacks
      Instead of smoking cigarettes
      These are years you're never getting back

      Stay along the beaten path, never listened when she said

      Sharp edges have consequences, I
      Guess that I had to find out for myself
      Sharp edges have consequences, now
      Every scar is a story I can tell

      We all fall down
      We live somehow
      We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger
      We all fall down
      We live somehow
      We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger

      Stay along the beaten path, never listened when she said

      Sharp edges have consequences, I
      Guess that I had to find out for myself
      Sharp edges have consequences, now
      Every scar is a story I can tell

      We all fall down
      We live somehow
      We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger
      We all fall down
      We live somehow
      We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger

      IÂ’m dancing with my demons
      IÂ’m hanging off the edge
      Storm clouds gather beneath me
      Waves break above my head
      At first hallucination
      I wanna fall wide awake now
      You tell me itÂ’s alright
      Tell me IÂ’m forgiven
      Tonight
      But nobody can save me now
      IÂ’m holding up a light
      Chasing up the darkness inside
      'Cause nobody can save me
      Stare into this illusion
      For answers yet to come
      I chose a false solution
      But nobody proved me wrong
      At first hallucination
      I wanna fall wide awake
      Watch the ground giving way now 
      You tell me itÂ’s alright
      Tell me IÂ’m forgiven
      Tonight
      But nobody can save me now
      IÂ’m holding up a light
      IÂ’m chasing up the darkness inside
      'Cause nobody can save me
      Been searching somewhere out there
      For whatÂ’s been missing right here
      IÂ’ve been searching somewhere out there
      For whatÂ’s been missing right here
      I wanna fall wide awake now
      So tell me itÂ’s alright
      Tell me IÂ’m forgiven
      Tonight
      If only I can save me now
      IÂ’m holding up a light
      Chasing up the darkness inside
      And I donÂ’t wanna let you down

      December 15, 2017 TO ALL CONGREGATIONS Re: 2017 Service Year Report
      Dear Brothers:
      We are pleased to share encouraging highlights from the 2017 service year report. The peak number of publishers was 8,457,107. Jehovah’s people spent a total of 2,046,000,202 hours in the ministry, a 3.1 percent increase from last year. We are especially encouraged to see a 7.4 percent increase in the number baptized, with a total of 284,212! This is evidence that we take seriously our commission to “make disciples.” (Matt. 28:19) We were delighted to see that the average number of regular pioneers was 1,225,279. This was an 8.6 percent increase! The worldwide Memorial attendance figure was 20,175,477. Significant features of the service year report will soon be available on jw.org and in JW Library, Watchtower ONLINE LIBRARY, and Watchtower Library. These figures provide compelling evidence of Jehovah’s blessing on our work.—Isa. 60:22.
      Throughout our branch territory, it is evident that Jehovah is searching for those “rightly disposed for everlasting life” in the language of their heart. (Acts 13:48) For instance, we are happy to report the formation of the first ever Cherokee-language congregation during the past service year. The first Swahili-language circuit in our branch territory was formed effective September 1, 2017. In addition to those reached in the door-to-door ministry, public witnessing initiatives are reaching more people than ever with the Bible’s message. There are over 17,000 publishers participating in the special metropolitan public witnessing program in 17 locations. Harbor witnessing is now organized in 45 ports, with 4,400 trained publishers boarding cargo and cruise ships in an effort to witness to crew members. Public witnessing campaigns organized at large state fairs and sporting events are exposing millions of individuals to the good news, as well as adding great impetus to this aspect of the preaching work.
      Much has also been accomplished in regard to Kingdom Hall usage in the United States branch territory. Twenty branch planning meetings were held with bodies of elders in metropolitan areas affecting over 2,200 congregations. Implementing non-construction solutions such as merging or relocating congregations has reduced the need for new auditoriums in these areas from 41 to 19, with a potential savings of millions of dollars!
      Be assured that Jehovah values your faithful service and that he will continue to give you the necessary strength to “fully accomplish your ministry” in the coming year!—2 Tim. 4:5; Isa. 40:31.
      Your brothers,
      PS to coordinators of the bodies of elders:
      Please arrange for this letter to be read to the congregation by the elder handling the part “Annual Service Report” in the Life and Ministry Meeting the week of January 1, 2018. Thereafter, the letter should be posted on the information board. This postscript should neither be read to the congregation nor be posted on the information board.

      Who are the most beautiful women in the world right now? Who do you think deserves the title of most beautiful woman of 2017? Here, below is a list of world’s most beautiful women.
      Beauty is the most debated topic in the world, and there is no ever clear winner. One who considered most beautiful at one time may lose her position at another time by someone else. Women normally have an attraction towards their physical characters like hotness and glamour. But, there are a few other factors like level of celebrity, confidence, intelligence, popularity, and skills too. It’s universal fact; beauty lies in the eyes of beholder. But when it comes to rank the beauty of a person, it is necessary to calculate the internal beauty as well as the external beauty. The external or physical beauty will age with time, all other factors remain ageless and keep person beautiful forever.
      Here, we have made a ranking of most beautiful women of 2017. The women listed here are confident, intelligent, desirable, dynamic and are very dedicated to their job. Vote for your favorite lady, and be sure to add anyone who’s missing from the list.

      A native of Florida, Abigail Leigh Spencer named People Magazine’s most beautiful women of 2017. She is an American actress known for her roles in several television series. Spencer began her career on the ABC daytime television soap opera All My Children playing Rebecca Tyree from 1999 to 2001. She is best known for her recurring roles on Mad Men and Suits. Also known for starring in the series Rectify and Timeless, for playing the leading role of history professor Lucy Preston.

      La tercera edición de los premios de fotografía Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards revela la cara más desenfadada, humana e imperfecta de los animales.
      Desde la infancia, el reino animal siempre se ha mostrado majestuoso y lleno de elegancia. Solo hay que pensar en la figura de los imponentes leones, la espectacularidad de los elefantes o la sutil desenvoltura de un delfín en el mar. Mediante los documentales y la ficción cinematográfica, se ha promovido e inculcado esta incuestionable solemnidad. Sin embargo, esa idealización tan seria de la naturaleza dista mucho de lo que promueven los Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards.

      Estos premios de fotografía, fundados por los profesionales Paul Joynson-Hicks y Tom Sullam hace ya tres años, dan un giro de 180º a la fotografía convencional y revelan la cara más desenfadada, humana e imperfecta de los animales.

      Bajo la organización de la fundación The Born Free, el concurso pretende conseguir, a través de una mirada más lúdica y entretenida, la conservación de todas las especies en el planeta. De esta forma, la risa se convierte en el arma más poderosa de concienciación medioambiental.

      Tras el éxito en las pasadas ediciones en 2015 y 2016, este año se han registrado aproximadamente 3.500 participaciones procedentes de 86 paísesdiferentes. Osos karatecas, cangrejos desconcertados, jirafas que atrapan avionetas e incluso monos motoristas. Nada pasa desapercibido para los concursantes de esta edición.

      Los jueces encargados de la decisión definitiva son los propios fundadores del concurso, con más de 20 años de experiencia en el campo de la fotografía africana; Will Burrard-Lucas, fotógrafo profesional de naturaleza, Will Travers, experto en vida silvestre, el periodista Oliver Smith, el comediante Hugh Dennis y la famosa presentadora de televisión Kate Humble. El premio en juego es un trofeo artesanal hecho por personas con discapacidad en un taller de Dar es Salaam (Tanzania),además de una semana de safari para dos personas en Kenya.

      I got a long way to go
      And a long memory
      I been searching for an answer
      Always just out of reach
      Blood on the floor
      Sirens repeat
      I been searching for the courage
      To face my enemies
      When they turn down the lights

      [Chorus]
      I hear my battle symphony
      All the world in front of me
      If my armor breaks
      I’ll fuse it back together
      Battle symphony
      Please just don’t give up on me
      And my eyes are wide awake

      [Bridge]
      For my battle symphony
      For my battle symphony

      [Verse 2]
      They say that I don’t belong
      Say that I should retreat
      That I’m marching to the rhythm
      Of a lonesome defeat
      But the sound of your voice
      Puts the pain in reverse
      No surrender, no illusions
      And for better or worse
      When they turn down the lights

      [Chorus]
      I hear my battle symphony
      All the world in front of me
      If my armor breaks
      I’ll fuse it back together
      Battle symphony
      Please just don’t give up on me
      And my eyes are wide awake

      [Bridge]
      If I fall, get knocked down
      Pick myself up off the ground
      If I fall, get knocked down
      Pick myself up off the ground
      When they turn down the lights

      [Chorus]
      I hear my battle symphony
      All the world in front of me
      If my armor breaks
      I’ll fuse it back together
      Battle symphony

      [Verse 1]
      I wasn’t just broken, I was shattered
      I trusted you so much, you're all that mattered
      You no longer love me and I sang like a sad bird
      I couldn't move on and I think you were flattered

      [Chorus]
      Oh! Life’s about joy
      Life's about pain
      It's all about forgiving and the will to walk away
      I'm ready to be loved
      And love the way I should
      Life's about
      Life's about to get good

      [Post-Chorus]
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good

      [Verse 2]
      The longer my tears fell, the wider the river
      It killed me that you'd give your life to be with her
      I had to believe that things would get better
      It was time to forget you, forever

      [Chorus]
      Oh! Life’s about joy
      Life's about pain
      It's all about forgiving and the will to walk away
      I'm ready to be loved
      And love the way I should
      Life's about
      Life's about to get good

      [Post-Chorus]
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good

      [Bridge]
      It took me so long to be strong
      But I'm alive, and I hold on
      To what I can feel, it hurts to heal
      Oh, when love lies
      About to get good
      About to get good
      About to get...Ahhh

      [Chorus]
      Oh! Life’s about joy
      Life's about pain
      It's all about forgiving and the will to walk away
      I'm ready to be loved
      And love the way I should
      Life's about
      Life's about to get good

      [Post-Chorus]
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good
      Oh, life's about to get good

      [Outro]
      Oh, life's about joy
      Life's about pain
      Life's about, life's about to get good

      [Verse 1]
      Should've stayed, were there signs, I ignored?
      Can I help you, not to hurt, anymore?
      We saw brilliance, when the world, was asleep
      There are things that we can have, but can't keep
      [Chorus]
      If they say
      Who cares if one more light goes out?
      In the sky of a million stars
      It flickers, flickers
      Who cares when someone's time runs out?
      If a moment is all we are
      Or quicker, quicker
      Who cares if one more light goes out?
      Well I do
      [Verse 2 ]
      The reminders, pull the floor from your feet
      In the kitchen, one more chair than you need, oh
      And you're angry, and you should be, it's not fair
      Just 'cause you can't see it, doesn't mean it, isn't there
      [Chorus]
      If they say
      Who cares if one more light goes out?
      In the sky of a million stars
      It flickers, flickers
      Who cares when someone's time runs out?
      If a moment is all we are
      Or quicker, quicker
      Who cares if one more light goes out?
      Well I do
      [Instrumental + Bridge]
      (I do)
      [Chorus/Outro]
      Who cares if one more light goes out?
      In the sky of a million stars
      It flickers, flickers
      Who cares when someone's time runs out?
      If a moment is all we are
      Or quicker, quicker
      Who cares if one more light goes out?
      Well I do Well I do

    • Does it really matter who a person on here is ?  Does it matter if a person uses 10 different 'usernames' ? If a person can bring some info' to the table that is surely good ?  Then others can confirm or criticise that info.  But to waffle on about who a person is or is not, what good is that doing any of us ?  I have a theory that this Forum is run by JW Elders. The purpose of the forum being to study the feelings and actions of JW's, Ex-JW's, Apostates, et al.  Then those Elders report their finding to a superior body, and it may even get to the GB.   But this theory does me no good, nor anyone else, so I will keep it to myself  .  Coffee time. 
    • @Arauna  Quote " I think that things LOST are a better topic "  But it isn't the topic. You would want it to be because as I've noticed you don't seem to have any things GAINED'  The GB have lumped great weights onto the shoulders of the congregants and the GB nor Elders lift a finger to help.  Just as the Pharisees did, adding negativity but nothing positive.  What I'm showing is that the GB is not motivated by Holy Spirit, and is not moving the CCJW forward. It is stagnant, but wallowing in immorality. 
    • Look, I like you, and all. I really do. Besides, I owe you for constructive criticism of my books. I share your prioritization of the overall picture and your frustration at some ragged human edges. So should I play this way? Hmm. Ah, well, I have a touch of OCD. Everyone knows it. I’ll ask for forgiveness later: “Now the day came when the sons of the true God entered to take their station before Jehovah, and Satan also entered among them. Then Jehovah said to Satan: I mean, come on! There! Now, a couple of caveats. Of course, he is not the devil. Nor is it the whistleblower talk that prompts the characterization. It is the atheism in combination with his relentless opposition—he has spurned and opposes EVERYTHING, not just characters of the past that appear squirrelly. And his plain self-worship, as manifest by his need to correct every little detail....who does THAT remind you of? Nor, obviously, are you Jehovah—any more than I am.  https://www.tomsheepandgoats.com/2019/11/oh-no-i-would-never-presume-to-compare-myself-with-the-most-high-god.html
    • Every word emanating from my keyboard is laden with value. They positively reek with the stuff. All words from any other source should be disposed of. There is one or two Dilberts from JTR that are pretty good, but other than that.....out to the curb with everything except my posts! My favorite memory with Alan is when he was carrying on about his atheism and evolution, and I came onboard as Dr. Adhominem or someone to discuss learnedly with him the problem of persuading the rank and file about evolutionary psychology, since there really is no evidence and its little more than wishful evolutionist thinking—to see how long I could pull the scam before he knew he was being had. It went for two or three comments. Of course, it was completely unfair on my part, but he has such a blustering manner and a manifest need to prove himself RIGHT on EVERY SINGLE DETAIL, even those having nothing to do with the thread, that I couldn’t resist. Call THAT not contributing anything of value? Now watch him respond that he knew instantly that Dr Adhominem was a fraud, for it is very important to him to NEVER be in the wrong over ANYTHING. I mean, the guy has a personality that smacks  of waving a red flag before a bull. And he has NO sense of humor. A “juggernaut,” Witness called him. It will be very hard for me to refrain from saying much. I will try my best, but it will be hard. It is a huge consumer of time, so I’m not eager to commit that sin again, and besides, I don’t want to get The Librarian (that old hen) mad at me once more.  
    • Per Wikipedia, The Constitution says: "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors." When the Constitution was written, the terms "high crime" and "misdemeanor" were both used in senses that are quite different from the way we've come to think of them today. The original sense came from the laws that the framers had themselves been under, the British laws, which had used the term since as far back as 1386. It was originally a phrase to highlight the fact that almost any kind of "maladministration" --even things we might think of as NON-crimes-- could have a magnified effect due to the "high office" of the official, judge, president, etc. Most of the items that were considered "maladministration" would not be considered much of a problem at all if you or I practiced them. But they could become a perverting of justice or subject the populace to the ill effects in a way that only a person in high office had the ability to do. When James Madison discussed the formulation of the "constitution" with Mason, they started out with only Bribery and Treason, but Mason argued that the definition of Treason is too narrowly tied to enemies when at war, and that this would hardly cover situations when a president "attempts to subvert the Constitution." So the British term "maladministration" was suggested and then, after discussion, changed it to the more formal British term "high crimes and misdemeanors." According to the Wikipedia article on "Maladministration"  it means the following in UK law: The definition of maladministration is wide and can include: Delay Incorrect action or failure to take any action Failure to follow procedures or the law Failure to provide information Inadequate record-keeping Failure to investigate Failure to reply Misleading or inaccurate statements Inadequate liaison Inadequate consultation Broken promises That's such a vague definition that Madison said it would be the equivalent of just having a President who served at the pleasure of the Senate. It would "normalize" impeachment, and therefore the phrase "high crimes and misdemeanors" was deemed closer to the idea of "subverting the constitution." The phrase was definitely intended to narrow the reasons that the Senate might try to impeach a President, but was also a way to include things that would not nearly reach up to the definitions of bribery and treason. In Britain the phrase meant abuse of a high office even if the abuse did NOT violate any criminal laws. So this is how legal scholars have also applied it to the US presidency, usually with a focus on any subversion of the Constitution. The Wiki article on "High Crimes and Misdemeanors" includes the following that gives an idea of how the original framers understood it: Benjamin Franklin asserted that the power of impeachment and removal was necessary for those times when the Executive "rendered himself obnoxious," and the Constitution should provide for the "regular punishment of the Executive when his conduct should deserve it, and for his honorable acquittal when he should be unjustly accused." James Madison said that "impeachment... was indispensable" to defend the community against "the incapacity, negligence or perfidy of the chief Magistrate." With a single executive, Madison argued, unlike a legislature whose collective nature provided security, "loss of capacity or corruption was more within the compass of probable events, and either of them might be fatal to the Republic."[10] The process of impeaching someone in the House of Representatives and the Senate is difficult, made so to be the balance against efforts to easily remove people from office for minor reasons that could easily be determined by the standard of "high crimes and misdemeanors". It was George Mason who offered up the term "high crimes and misdemeanors" as one of the criteria to remove public officials who abuse their office. Their original intentions can be gleaned by the phrases and words that were proposed before, such as "high misdemeanor," "maladministration," or "other crime." Edmund Randolph said impeachment should be reserved for those who "misbehave." Charles Cotesworth Pinckney said, It should be reserved "for those who behave amiss, or betray their public trust." As can be seen from all these references to "high crimes and misdemeanors," the definition or its rationale does not relate to specific offences. This gives a lot of freedom of interpretation to the House of Representatives and the Senate. The constitutional law by nature is not concerned with being specific. The courts through precedence and the legislature through lawmaking make constitutional provisions specific. In this case the legislature (the House of Representatives and the Senate) acts as a court and can create a precedent. In Federalist No. 65, Alexander Hamilton said, "those offences which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated political, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself."[11] The first impeachment conviction by the United States Senate was in 1804 of John Pickering, a judge of the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire, for chronic intoxication. Federal judges have been impeached and removed from office for tax evasion, conspiracy to solicit a bribe, and making false statements to a grand jury.[12]
    • France is in shambles right now. To this day the Yellow Vest still march, and as even stated before, which turns out to be true, protests everywhere, in and outside of France. The Americans will get quite the treat in a few weeks, this I am sure of due to the ongoing chaos we see now.
    • @Arauna Not all educated people know their Bible. Sadly, you have some Christians and preachers proclaiming positive by means of showing that the Bible supports Homosexuality and exploiting the love and forgiveness that is God and through his Christ. But yes, the majority of the world is intertwined with the false teachings of mainstream Christendom, this includes what you've mentioned False teachings, practices, etc of which this world's Christianity's embraces needs to be refuted. Another thing is, false teachings such as these are the very ones that is actually declining Christendom and putting Islam and Spirituality on the raise, so in this sense, Trinitarians are indirectly harming themselves, but makes the job harder for legitimate preachers of the truth to teach the truth of the Bible. The truth of the Scriptures are interpreted differently by some, but the core conclusion is what is needed to be proclaimed in regards to the Bible in order to push out a professed truth - in short, someone may speak of what happened at Mount Gerizim differently and or what is in Revelations differently, but the core conclusion to said teaching is what remains the same, and said teaching must be taught to the people and or the person in the Bible study itself - helping said reader to not just read, but also to apply, and even meditate on what is learnt. Then you have Apostates who teach and twist and even throw in a bit of hate, I had my far share of such ones who claim to be Christian and defend false teachings and preach that Jesus loves everyone and that homosexuality is okay, or the fact that God has no care for the Earth he has created - they are gravely wrong. That being said, falsehood is everywhere, but there is and always will be a small handful of people who will minister and teach the truth, often times such ones are the very ones who are targets.
