Lawless America

Lawless America
In 2016, the Supreme Court issued a unanimous opinion overturning a conviction that the Department of Justice (DOJ) had seemed willing to secure at whatever cost to the rule of law. The case involved the prosecution of former governor Bob McDonnell (R-Va.), and the lead DOJ prosecutor was now-special counsel Jack Smith. The court dismissed the “tawdry tales” offered by the DOJ and declared that it was far more concerned with the damage that Smith was causing to the legal system with his...

When I was young, I never thought about the American justice system. It was always a given. When people were in danger they called the police. When there were legal disputes there were trials with respected judges and unbiased juries. Now I know that our institutions have gradually been taken over by the left. The problem became more pronounced during the 2020 riots. That is when democrat officials in blue cities had their police stand down as the rioters and looters ran unhindered through numerous cities. We all know the results. Tremendous damage and two dozen people killed with very few people held accountable. The current vp even worked to get those who were jailed released.


It occurred to me that there is no judicial body to say that was wrong or to fine officials for not protecting their people. You see, the greatest generation didn't need that. Integrity came with the job.

Prior to that we witnessed the FBI trying to stage a coup. FISA warrants were used. Although knowingly creating a misleading/false FISA application has serious penalties, the FBI lawyer who confessed served zero prison time. I could go on with that, but the things done during the Trump Presidency deserve an article by itself.


What I want to focus on is what used to be called malicious prosecution and immorality.

The democrats are set on using lawfare against Donald Trump as a means to winning an election. There are 4 cases against Donald Trump all being used to convict or jail him before the election. Let us first examine the integrity or lack thereof of the prosecutors:

NYC: Letitia James won an election for New York's AG She campaigned for that office on one thing: she was going to get Trump. Did we ever think we would see the day when anyone would campaign for the office of AG in that way? Then as Donald Trump is forced to get lawyers and spend time defending himself, she shows up in the courtroom grinning at him. When not in court she is making speeches about the case. Here is the payoff. At a New York Fire Department ceremony last Thursday, those in attendance including the families of captains, battalion chiefs and civilians up for promotion erupted in loud jeers as James walked to the podium. Now Fire Commissioner Laura Kavanagh, has launched an investigation to track down the offending firefighters. Is it really America?

Then we come to the Manhattan DA: Alvin Bragg . Bragg is a social justice warrior who has a history of turning violent criminals loose. Most recently, An Arizona judge refused to extradite a man accused of beating a woman to death at a Manhattan hotel back to New York out of fear that he wouldn't be held. Court Commissioner Barbara Spencer ruled in favor of Mitchell, issuing a significant blow to Bragg.

Fani Willis: I think everyone is aware that she is the corrupt DA from corrupt Fulton County. Her massive case against Trump and many who were close to him is now in jeopardy. A judge will soon decide whether to take her off the case. She may even be disbarred for perjury. If she is taken off the case, others may not take it up. If she remains on the case, her credibility will be gone. Either way it will be hard to get a verdict before the election.

That brings us to Jack Smith , the prosecutor who thought he had a Trump trial on the fast track. How fair is Smith? You only need to go on x to find him smearing Donald Trump on a daily basis. You'll also find me there questioning his integrity on a daily basis. Smith now has two problems. He is running out of time because the Courts are considering Trump's claims and he has a history of winning verdicts that eventually get overturned.


Why isn't there a board of integrity overseeing DAs?

If he can get the trial in before the election, Smith's case will be one of the biggest issues in the coming election. 

Is this the way to decide an election?

don't republicans want american voters to know if joe and hunter are guilty before the election? isn't that the whole point of all the house investigations that have been going on? don't you think the american voter has a right to know if presidential candidates, that have pending/ongoing legal issues before a court, deserve to have those legal questions resolved before the election?

willfully retained, attempted to hide, and obstructed the return of classified documents?

Between Pence, Biden and dozens of other officials this year and last,

Trump is the only one who willingly retained, attempted to hide and obstructed the return of classified documents.

Both Pence and Biden invited the Feds to search and remove anything questionable from their properties,

not hiding, or in Trump's case flying boxes of documents to New Jersey.

Among the missing docs, the binder of original docs about Russian election interference.

The mystery of the missing binder: How a collection of raw Russian intelligence disappeared under Trump - CNN

This week on Fox, Trump  blindsided his defense team's previous claims by returning to

the defense that they were his personal papers because he magically unclassified them simply by mentally

declaring them to himself that they were  now unclassified and his personal possessions proven by his  removal

of them from the White House.

An asinine defense

No one ever says trump is innocent -  his own mother probably wouldn't say that he's innocent. His defense is always that the prosecutors are corrupt or that the justice system is corrupt or that he wants to get off on a technicality. This is what mafia bosses do.

Since you know he's guilty, why bother with the courts and pesky laws? Just lynch him already.  Or, go the Burge route and beat him until he confesses to something. You KNOW he's a criminal so there's no need to worry about rights or whether he's actually guilty of what he's accused of.

Doesn’t that feel odd for a supporter of the Clintons and Biden to say?. They’ve played the exact Same game trump has of walking the line between legal/illegal and relying on legalistic arguments to excuse obviously shitty behavior.

Any Democrat who supported Clinton's impeachment and couldn't vote for Biden or Clinton because of their corrupt history/decades of dishonesty has every right to oppose Trump in the strongest possible terms. But those who justified Clinton's legal games to avoid prosecution for perjury, ignored the claims of sexual harassment/rape etc. have no grounds to complain about Trump.

TDS driven DA/AG; TDS driven judge (who doesn't know jack shit about real estate); and TDS driven jury.

The Governor is so damn worried about every single business that engages in the same practice as Trump enterprises leaving New York that she that she had to make an ad stating they had nothing to fear.

.

The   New York   governor has told business owners in her state that there is “nothing to worry about” after Donald Trump was fined $355m and temporarily banned from engaging in commerce in the state when he lost his civil fraud trial on Friday.

In an interview on the New York radio show   the Cats Roundtable   with the supermarket billionaire John Catsimatidis, Kathy Hochul sought to quell fears in some quarters that the penalties handed to Trump for engaging in fraudulent business practices could chill the state’s commercial climate.

Asked if businesspeople should be worried that if prosecutors could “do that to the former president, they can do that to anybody”, Hochul said: “Law-abiding and rule-following New Yorkers who are businesspeople have nothing to worry about because they’re very different than Donald Trump and his behavior.”

She added that the fraud case against   Trump   resulted from “really an extraordinary, unusual circumstance”.

Hochul’s comments were directed at some New York business leaders who said they were concerned that the attorney general Letitia James ’s case against Trump could deter businesses and investment from coming to the state. Hochul noted James’s case demonstrated how Trump and some allies obtained favorable bank loans and insurance rates with inflated real estate values.

The governor said most New York business owners were “honest people, and they’re not trying to hide their assets and they’re following the rules”.

Hochul said most business owners would not merit state intervention.

“This judge determined that Donald Trump did not follow the rules,” Hochul added. “He was prosecuted and truly, the governor of the state of New York does not have a say in the size of a fine, and we want to make sure that we don’t have that level of interference.”

She is already too late. The fallout from the TDS moronic ruling is already being felt.

“Shark Tank” investor Kevin O’Leary ripped into what he called “loser” New York and vowed to no longer invest in the state, when asked about a New York court’s $355 million verdict against former   President Trump   last week. 

Trump, his business and his top executives — including the former president’s sons — were dealt a major blow last Friday when Judge   Arthur Engoron   ordered him to pay more than $355 million for conspiring to alter his net worth to receive tax and insurance benefits. The order also blocks Trump from participating in New York business for three years.

“This award, I mean, just leaving the whole Trump thing out of it and seeing what occurred here … And I’m no different than any other investor, I’m shocked at this,”  O’Leary said in an interview   Monday with Fox Business. “I can’t even understand or fathom the decision at all. There’s no rationale for it.”

TDS is an incurable disease. The only way to deal with it is quarantine those infected so that it is not allowed to spread. New York is finding that out now.

All of which testified on Trump's behalf in court.

Not one of them are receiving any reward from the verdict.

So no victims; except for TDS driven New Yorkers need to get Trump at all costs. Their mental state is not grounds for any lawsuit.

4.1.24  Ronin2  replied to  JBB @4.1.14    one month ago

Bullshit.

The judge used whatever fucking idiotic standards he felt like to judge the value of Trump's businesses.

A New York judge ruled last week that former President Donald Trump inflated the value of his Mar-a-Lago estate by an eye-popping 2,300%.

That finding, part of   shocking ruling that found Trump and his adult sons liable for fraud,   was just one of multiple examples in which Judge Arthur Engoron found the Trump real estate empire to have been grossly inflated in value.

But the Mar-a-Lago finding in particular is raising eyebrows among real estate and legal experts because of the metric Judge Engoron relied on: the county tax assessor’s appraisal value.

“From 2011-2021, the Palm Beach County Assessor appraised the market value of Mar-a-Lago at between $18 million and $27.6 million,” Engoron wrote in   his ruling .

The judge noted Trump valued Mar-a-Lago at between $426.5 million and $612 million, “an overvaluation of at least 2,300%, compared to the assessor’s appraisal.”

But it’s widely known that the tax assessor valuation is typically, though not always, less than what a property would command on the open market.

In other words, it’s not an apples-to-apples comparison.

“Appraisal values and market values are just not the same thing. It’s a well-known fact,” said Eli Beracha, chair of the school of real estate at Florida International University. “That’s especially true for properties that are unique. And it’s very easy to argue this is a unique property.”

Dina Goldentayer, executive director of sales at Douglas Elliman in South Florida, said in her experience in the ultra-luxury marketplace the tax assessor’s valuation isn’t considered when trying to value a property.

“Ludicrous,” agent Liza Pulitzer said about the judge citing the county’s tax appraisal as a benchmark. Homes a tenth the size of Mar-a-Lago on tiny inland lots sell for that in the Town of Palm Beach, a wealthy island enclave.

“The entire real estate community felt it was a joke when they saw that figure,” said Pulitzer, who works for the firm Brown Harris Stevens.

“That thing would get snapped up for hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars,” said Rob Thomson, owner of Waterfront Properties and a Mar-a-Lago member. “There is zero chance that it’s going to sell for $40 million or $50 million.”

Democrats don't respect the rule of law or the Constitution. So the judge using BS numbers to achieve the verdict he wanted is no surprise.

Spot on!

This is some of the results of far too many voters being strictly partisan or choosing to vote for the lesser of two evils.

What they fail to understand is only the voters can make a difference and if you consistently vote for the lesser of two evils, we are doomed to getting more and more shitty candidates.

You mean the Court that Joe Biden has routinely ignored?  Is there any accountability for a president ignoring the SCOTUS?


Why isn't there a board of integrity overseeing American politicians?

Actually, there is. Just ask George Santos.

Just ask George Santos.

But not Senator Menedez, It's almost like a 2 tier justice system.

But not Senator Menedez...

He should have been voted out months ago. Some of the Senate Dems tried, but not enough and not leadership.

I know Fetterman tried, but the democrats in the senate care more about power than integrity.
