Biden needs to drop charges against Trump
“They know now they woefully failed to Blagojevich DJT.”
The plan was simple. Democrats and RINOs decided to let protesters into the Capitol, claim they broke in and then call it an insurrection. The deep state and its politicians could then say President Donald Trump was leading an insurrection, which under a clause in the 14th Amendment would strip him from holding a federal office.
Now it is pretty stupid to charge a sitting president with trying a coup d’état when at the time he was the chief of the executive branch of the government. That’s not even a Coupe DeVille. That’s Sheriff Bart holding himself hostage in Blazing Saddles.
But Biden was not satisfied with that hare-brained idea. He has a bunch of other hares with brains ready to tap. Biden told the FBI to raid Mar-a-Lago, where they confiscated 100,000 items — only 100 of which they claim were classified materials. As president, he de-classified them.
Biden spun a bunch of propaganda about Trump stealing nuclear codes and the like. All the while, Biden has been peddling top secret info to foreigners for decades now. The FBI found classified materials in his garage. No charges were filed.
I no longer believe Biden is a puppet on strings. Sure, he takes orders from Obama and his sponsors when they want something. But Biden has plenty of time to play politics and abuse power. His family is still collecting his bribes.
He is 10-0 in general elections against Republicans (7 Senate races, 2 VP and 1 presidential). Don’t count the man out. On top of that, his actions are too bizarre to come from anyone else. George Soros may be evil but he is not stupid. Biden is both.
The multiple indictments of Donald Trump are overkill. Four consecutive trials in four different cities is just too much, as are the 91 counts against him. With the exception of Florida, the three other venues are Democrat strongholds (Atlanta, New York and Washington). The possibility of a fair trial is non-existent. The public sees this and will discount any conviction especially if they see the trials on TV.
Biden is calling the shots. Merrick Garland just does what he is told. Biden also encouraged Letitia James, Alvin Bragg and Fani Willis to tie Trump up in state courts. Biden hired discredited prosecutor Jack Smith to do his dirty work on the federal level. The Supreme Court overturned Smith’s last prosecution 9-0.
Smith’s unprecedented persecution of the previous president surely pleases this president, but in every genie story ever told by Disney the demise of the villain comes when the genie grants his wish because genies are as mean as they are powerful; they love to punish the wicked.
Republicans don’t. They want to be accepted by the villain. Well, at least the ones in Washington do. But while the RINOs bend to Democrat will, real Reaganauts are fighting back.
Dan Abrams reported, “The 91-year-old former attorney general of the United States during the Ronald Reagan administration chimed in Saturday on the Georgia racketeering (RICO) prosecution of former DOJ assistant attorney general Jeffrey Clark, calling the case a ‘major affront to federal supremacy.’
“Edwin Meese III, in a declaration filed before U.S. District Judge Steve Jones, the Barack Obama appointed jurist who has been handling challenges of the RICO prosecution under the federal removal statute, wrote that he was not impressed with Fulton County DA Fani Willis’ (D) case.”
You are never to old to fight evil. The whole RICO law is a good intention that paves the road to you-know-where. RICO became law to go after the Mafia. Rudy Giuliani did and wiped out the Mafia. The law stayed on the books.
The Biden administration should take a dive here because all signs point to a no win situation. An acquittal clears Trump. A conviction makes him a martyr. The people may not have as many rights as they once did, but they are making the prosecutions toxic for Democrats.
Biden’s first hint that his plan to prosecute Trump out of the race is folly should have been the way The Mugshot backfired. Rather than repulsing voters, the photo rallied some of Biden’s supporters behind Trump. Real Clear Politics found that polls before the release of the mugshot slightly favored Biden. After the mugshot, the polls show Trump slightly ahead.
Democrats and RINOs may need to print out 10 million more mail-in ballots next year to fix this.
A reader pointed out, “Dems cannot afford not to openly prosecute DJT. Their base, including Deep State, not only will be lost but also DJT’s triumphant return to WH, their political death, unwittingly would have been guaranteed by that failure.
“Yet they are very apprehensive of what evidence DJT has for all cases. Their unlawful trespass of Mar-a-Lago did not help to get the pieces of evidence.
“They know now they woefully failed to Blagojevich DJT.”
Blagojevich was the governor of Illinois Obama prosecuted for saying he could peddle Obama’s abandoned Senate seat. Blagojevich did not sell the office but Obama successfully prosecuted him nonetheless after a barrage of media misinformation for months.
The FBI did have a warrant so it was a lawful invasion of President Trump’s privacy but maybe the reader meant an awful trespass because that is what it was.
The media seems to sense a disturbance in the deep state’s force. Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal had its Holman W. Jenkins Jr. throw a little shade on the persecution of President Trump.
Jenkins began his column, “It’s time for a disquisition on prosecutorial discretion. The idea has been embraced for centuries: A crime should be prosecuted not because it occurred but because it’s in the public interest to prosecute it. The Obama Justice Department, in a research note, called prosecutorial discretion an unconstrained power that can ‘trump evaluations of the evidence, the seriousness of the offense, and the defendant’s criminal history.’”
Obama refused to prosecute Hillary for sending 33,000 emails, many of them carrying classified material. The recipients included foreign donors to her fake charity. The FBI found out about it, went to her manor and helped her destroy the evidence.
That’s not prosecutorial discretion; that’s prosecutorial participation.
The siege against Trump has some fallout because amid all the self-righteous talk about no man being above the law, there sits Biden’s son, Fredo, on a pile of Benjamins with hookers, meth and crack, laughing all the way to the next pickup of fresh bribes for The Big Guy.
Finally, it dawned on Father Biden that the optics were wrong. He had his U.S. attorney in Delaware indict Fredo and then offer him a plea bargain that amounted to a parking ticket but also protected him from any future prosecution. It was a pardon without having to say pardon.
The judge saw through that like wet cheesecloth or a vintage poster of Farrah Fawcett-Majors and nixed the deal. The charges now are in limbo.
To fix the fallout from that fiasco, the feds indicted Fredo on gun charges. The NRA did not rally behind the cokehead. Imagine that.
Meanwhile, AP reported its poll showed 59% of Americans are “concerned about whether Joe Biden committed any wrongdoing.” AP said Americans are sharply divided, which shows what lies AP tells these days.
The charges are novel because they are based on what Trump said and not what he did. I go by what politicians do and not what they say. With Biden you have to because he often talks in gibberish. He hired Kamala because she is the only speaker in DC who sounds worse than he does.
Trump indictments are like Lay’s potato chips — naw, make that 9-year-old girls — to Biden because he cannot stop at just one. When trouble comes, Biden changes the news cycle to another Trump indictment.
Victor Davis Hanson wrote, “At each stage of the walls closing around Joe Biden, a commensurate ‘Trump did it’ news bulletin emerged. Collate the indictments or the leaks about impending indictments from the supposedly uncoordinated work of Alvin Bragg, Letitia James, Jack Smith, and Fani Willis both with iconic primary election dates ahead, and periodic revelations about the depth of Biden family corruption—and the synchronized distraction is quite stunning.
“Expect in the next year for each new incriminating document released, each new witness that comes forward with a tale of Biden corruption, almost immediately the headlines will blare about a new Trump gag order, a new scheduled Trump court appearance, a new flipped witness cooperating with a prosecutor, and a new leak about a certain conviction and jail time. The new media war will make its old Russian collusion’s all-star, hunter-killer team, and dream team prosecutors and the bombshell and walls are closing in revelations seem like child’s play.”
It’s the Mueller investigation on Stalinist steroids. The Pravdas in print and on TV parrot whatever the script is today, regardless of the facts or logic.
Mueller was smart enough not to prosecute. Merrick Garland and the Soros Prosecutors do not have a lick of sense. Their novel readings of the law are unlikely to pass muster. Law professor Jonathan Turley took on Jack Smith’s second batch of federal indictments.
Turley wrote, “The latest Trump indictment, based on little new evidence and even less established law, faces a major threshold challenge under the First Amendment. Smith is seeking to criminalize what constitutes disinformation, which not only runs against the grain of the First Amendment but also prior cases. That includes United States v. Alvarez, which overturned the conviction of a politician for knowingly lying about his military background.
“The Justice Department acknowledges that the Constitution protects false statements made in political campaigns. Yet it maintains that Trump can be convicted for lying because he really did not believe what he said.”
Calling that agency the Justice Department is a lie because it seeks to persecute political opponents (Trump) and any possible threat (like Blagojevich) to the Washington Establishment. The question is not whether we are in a banana republic, but how do we get out?
If it is by the ballot box, then Banana Joe is in trouble because he went four indictments too far.
