A case without merit
Judge Juan Merchan refused to remove himself from the case, despite Trump's complaint that his daughter works for Democratic political candidates.

Yesterday was supposed to be about jury selection and points of interest in the controversial criminal prosecution over hush money paid to former porn star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election. It is all part of the crusade by highly partisan DAs and prosecutors who have scoured the civil and criminal codes for any basis to prosecute Donald Trump before the 2024 election.

It was only a few weeks ago that another unhinged partisan judge imposed a half billion-dollar penalty in a case with no victims and little cause for a case being brought. Now we are knee deep in the absurd case of a misdemeanor before the 2016 election under state law that had already expired under the statute of limitations. Bragg had once dismissed the idea of bringing such a case, but one of his attack dogs Mark Pomerantz resigned out of frustration because the case was not taken up. Pomerantz defied legal ethics by publishing a book on the case against Trump, who was still under investigation and not charged, let alone convicted, of any crime. That was enough to get the clueless Bragg to bring the case that so many others would not.

Yesterday the judge in the case, who is compromised by his daughter's support of Joe Biden, accepted recommendations on evidence from the prosecution, while shooting down just about every request of the defense. Prosecutors asked Merchan to fine Trump $3,000 for alleged violations of a gag order prohibiting talking about potential witnesses in the case. Merchan will hold a hearing April 23.
A jury selection pool of 96 people was then asked if they could be fair and impartial. Fifty of them immediately disqualified themselves and walked out. Can we trust the rest?

The state of New York, which overwhelmingly voted Democrat at the 2020 election.

The remainder were subjected to 42 questions, which asked about extremist group membership, whether they had attended any Trump rallies, or read any of former President Trump's books, as well as their news-consumption habits. Other than a single question of BLM membership the questions for the most part were slanderous to the followers of Donald Trump and indicative of the bias of a kangaroo court.

The judge then warned Donald Trump that he must attend the trial, or a warrant would be issued. Trump is also, until a final decision, not allowed to attend his immunity hearing. The low point for this farce will be the appearance of the serial perjurer Michael Cohen on the stand.


In other news:

The democrat's big shot at convicting Trump has begun.

The Supreme Court temporarily allowed Idaho to enforce a ban on gender-affirming medical treatment for transgender minors while an appeal moves forward. 

Justice Clarence Thomas was absent from yesterday’s hearing. The court did not give a reason.

Speaker Mike Johnson said the House would vote this week on bills to send aid to Israel and Ukraine.

Israel's War Cabinet is meeting to decide what to do about the missile/drone attack launched by Iran over the weekend.

Protesters demanding a cease-fire in Gaza illegally blocked roads in the US. Will they be prosecuted?

Ukraine is now short of ammunition and soldiers.

Good morning.

Boston Marathon results:

Sisay Lemma of Ethiopia won the men’s race with a time of 2:06:17. In the women’s race, Hellen Obiri of Kenya won for the second year straight finishing in 2:22:37.

As usual I found it all very underwhelming.

progressives, and the judge don’t care about an appeal. They don’t care that trump essentially won’t be punished even ultimately loses, (the punishment is almost non existent for this “crime”), the only point is to get the talking point that he’s a “convicted felon.”

By that logic, Judge Juan Merchan should recuse himself as his daughter is the president of a political consulting firm who's clients include Adam Schiff and the Senate Majority PAC, a Democrat party fundraiser.
The judge’s daughter, Loren Merchan, is president of  Authentic Campaigns,  a Chicago-based progressive political consulting firm whose top clients include Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who was the lead prosecutor in Trump’s first impeachment trial, and the Senate Majority PAC, a major party fundraiser.

Using the logic that Tessylo uses for Justice Thomas, Judge Merchan should recuse himself due to the activities of his daughter. Or do you think that Justice Thomas is being wrongly accused just due to his wife being a Trump supporter and having called Mark Meadows?

Just being a democrat or republican IMO is not sufficient grounds to recuse themselves. But my comment was directly related to the logic that Tessylo uses against Justice Thomas. 

Simple question back at you. If as you propose if Merchan was a Trump supporter and his daughter as president of a political consulting firm did work for Republicans only, would you object and think that Judge Merchan should recuse himself?

Ginni Thomas, the wife of the supreme court justice  Clarence Thomas , was accused of “undermining democracy” after it emerged that she emailed 29 Republican lawmakers in Arizona in her effort to overturn Joe Biden’s victory over Donald Trump.

The Washington Post  had previously reported  that Ginni Thomas sent emails pressuring two Arizona Republicans to reject Biden’s win and choose their own electors.

On Friday, the paper  said  Ginni Thomas emailed 29 individuals.

Thomas’s involvement in Trump’s attempt to overturn his election defeat, including   events around the deadly Capitol attack , has been widely reported.

Just stop what? You need to make yourself clear. All I've done is ask Tessylo if the same logic she uses to state that Justice Thomas should recuse himself from any Jan 6th case that comes before SCOTUS can also be used to state that Judge Merchan should recuse himself. After all, Judge Merchan has donated to the Biden election and other Democrat functions, his daughter as president of Authentic Campaigns has the following to her credit.

Authentic Campaigns has listed Vice President   Kamala Harris ' 2020 presidential campaign, Kamala Harris for the People, the Biden-Harris campaign and   Schiff 's super Political Action Committee (PAC) as clients.

Loren Merchan was also listed as the director of digital persuasion for the Kamala Harris for the People campaign in an archived January 2019 announcement.

Under her name and title was a blurb about her previous work, which included vice president and director of digital advertising at Authentic Campaigns.

Not specifically what you were opining, but it's the only poll in MY newsfeed this week on the subject.

New York Times/Siena College poll  released Saturday asked likely voters what they thought the verdict in the hush money trial  should  be, to which 46 percent said Trump should be found guilty and 37 percent said he should be found not guilty.

Speaker Mike Johnson said the House would vote this week on bills to send aid to Israel and Ukraine.

Ok Johnson, what about the border? The Senate faux bipartisan bill is a non starter. I don't care how many BP bus drivers Brandon wants to hire; nor how many uber leftist immigration judges he can appont. The goal is to fix the border and immigration problems. Not turn it into one large Democrat indoctrination center. 

Screw Israel and Ukraine. Israel doesn't need US money- they are already the bully on the block in the ME. No country in the ME can touch their military power. If they want to buy US weapons great- we can sell them some; but they don't need US taxpayer money to do so. As for Ukraine, Russia has been proven not to be a threat to NATO or European countries. Time for the war to end. If Zelenskyy wants to fight to the last Ukrainian standing that is on him. Otherwise time to negotiate and realize that Crimea was never Ukraine's; and he may have to cede some southern territory. 

We need to take care of ourselves for a change- instead of sending US taxpayer money to never ending sink holes abroad.

Michael Cohen warns of bombshell evidence during Trump trial: report (msn.com)

During his conversation with Cohen, Politico chief Washington correspondent Ryan Lizza mentioned that "credibility is one part of this trial," but, " The other c-word that comes up is 'corroboration. '"

Lizza asked the former Trump attorney, "What can you tell us about that? Is this a stronger case when it comes to corroboration than people understand on the outside?"

Cohen insisted, "If it wasn’t, Alvin Bragg and his team of prosecutors would never have brought this case."

In fact, when Lizza asked Cohen whether he thinks the public will "be surprised" by the corroborating evidence, the star witness replied, "I do."

He emphasized, "In fact, most people don’t really know anything. They only know what the headlines have been. And as you know very, very well, headlines do not necessarily tell the story."

Unfortunately a TDS driven leftist judge is in charge for the case. One whose daughter works for a Democrat propaganda firm. I am sure she is enjoying fund raising off of the lead up and trial.

One thing that Cohen has been very enlightening about is his fear of jail time and what he would do to avoid it:

Cohen then said "I'll sign the whole document if that means I don't have to go back to jail," according to Davis, but the U.S. Marshals said it was out of their hands and transported Cohen back to the federal facility in Brooklyn.

Here are some small nuggets on the jurors.

  • The foreperson — or leader of the jury — is married, lives in West Harlem, works in sales and is originally from Ireland.
  • Another juror is a young black woman who has friends with opinions about Trump, but said she’s not a political person. She said that she respected that Trump “always speaks his mind.”
  • An Oregon native who works as a corporate lawyer at Gunderson Dettmer. He said they enjoy hiking and running. He has lived in Chelsea for five years.
  • A female software engineer who lives in Chelsea.
  • A 40-year-old, Lower East Side resident who said he found Trump “fascinating and mysterious.”
    “He walks into a room and he sets people off one way or another,” the juror said, who works as an IT consultant. “I find that really interesting. Really, this one guy can do all of this. Wow, that’s what I think.”
  • A female oncology nurse at Memorial Sloan Kettering who lives on the Upper East Side.
  • A civil litigator who lives on the Upper East Side. He told the court that he enjoys reading The Post and other outlets. He indicated he would be able to serve fairly and impartially.

In conclusion:

As noted above 7 jurors were selected. (4 men and 3 women) The case is moving at breakneck speed.

A few points on the day that began with a stormy start: Gag orders are issued to protect defendants, and, in this case, it is nonreciprocal. Michael Cohen is all over leftist tv talking about the case. As soon as this partisan judge tries to enforce it, Trump will be enabled to appeal it.

The best part of the day was when Donald Trump left the Courthouse and visited the Manhattan bodega where clerk Jose Alba infamously stabbed an ex-con to death in self-defense two years ago, a case that drew widespread outrage after he was initially charged with murder by New York's upside down woke legal system. Trump then stopped by the Sanaa Convenient Store in Harlem to meet the owners. He was cheered by people in the streets who chanted "Four more years."

Guess Barr is no longer a favorate of the left after being held up by so many of them...

Former Attorney General Bill Barr slammed New York prosecutors for the "obviously political"   Trump hush money case , calling it an "abomination" as jury selection continues in the landmark trial. 

Barr, who led the Department of Justice under former President Donald Trump, argued the case signals what the real threat to democracy is in his opinion — the "excesses of the progressive left."

"This case is an abomination," Barr said   during "America's Newsroom"   on Wednesday. "It's obviously political. Seven years after he pays hush money to try to come up with this case. It's also, as you say, it's not only far-fetched… they're trying to predicate it on a federal crime which wasn't prosecuted."

"And they're wrong about it. This was not a campaign contribution. They're just wrong on the law," he continued. "But to me, this shows that the real threat to liberty, the real threat to our system, are the excesses of the progressive left… They're perverting the system of justice, and… that's where the danger lies. The corruption and subversion of our institutions by the left."
