Their Lawfare Is Crumbling
Watching the Defectives ^ | 3/3/2024 | Parker Shannon

Posted on 03/03/2024 7:56:47 AM PST by Candor7

Lawfare is the vengeful exercise of raw political power to punish political enemies. It is unadulterated fascism, and the destruction of the American system of justice.

What a week!

Consider what has happened this week:

SCOTUS delayed Jack Smith's Jan. 6 trial -- possibly until after the election.

Judge Cannon is likely to delay the Mar-a-Lago classified documents case at least until the summer.

Fani Willis and Nathan Wade are likely to be removed from the racketeering case, delaying and perhaps ending their RICO persecution of Trump.

Trump has appealed Letitia James' Draconian penalties to New York Appeals Court which could potentially put Judge Engoron's ruling on hold during an appeals process that could last a year or longer.

Alvin Bragg's gag order imposed against Trump in the New York hush-money criminal case is likely to be delayed by appeal.

And the cherry on the top was a blowout Bloomberg poll showing Trump leading in all seven swing states.

The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray

There are commonalities in all the court cases against Donald Trump. The biggest of which is the simple fact that they wouldn't even exist if Trump had just stayed home at Mar-a-Lago and played golf -- but he didn't -- he filed for and is running for the presidency and to save America from the demi-communists running Joe Biden's government.

Democratic Party prosecutors all filed these cases in big, Democratic Party-controlled cities -- Washington, New York and Atlanta -- where liberal judges and jury pools predominate, unlike the country at large. Three of the prosecutors -- Letitia James, Alvin Bragg, and Fani Willis -- actually campaigned for office by promising to destroy Donald Trump.

Jack Smith -- who has been accused of extorting Eastern Europeans while assigned to the World Court -- has made no secret of the fact that he wants Trump tried and convicted before the November election.

Democrats have changed laws, filed suits that have never been filed before in improper courts in a desperate effort to find something on Trump. They have charged Trump with "insurrection," even though he has never been charged with insurrection -- much less convicted of it. Dirty Fani hit Trump and a bunch of others with a RICO violation -- a racketeering charge created to fight the Mafia and drug cartels.

Trump has been charged with unlawfully removing classified files to his private residence while he was in negotiations with the National Archives about who the rightful owner of the documents were. Meanwhile, no federal government entity is charging Joe Biden, who had no authority to be in possession of, and for the unlawful storage and handling of stolen TOP SECRET (SCI) documents that he had in open boxes in his unsecure garage, a Penn State office he hadn't visited in three years -- and even in Wilmington's Chinatown!

Candidates for political office and members of the House have all challenged election outcomes. They sought either to delay or redo ballot counting, or, on the federal level, to sidetrack electors, to ignore popular votes in their respective states -- everybody remembers Al Gore's "hanging chads."

None have ever been charged with attempting to overthrow an election -- Trump was! Lawfare

The Democrat Party has been throwing everything they can think of to "get Trump." This week it all ground to a halt and the Democrats have begun to squirm. Fani Willis

Fulton County (Atlanta) District Attorney Fani Willis and her paramour, Nathan Wade, both have been caught with their hand in the cookie jar. They helped themselves to the state treasury to pay for their lavish lifestyle and expensive vacations together. Then they lied under oath to deceived the court and now have been caught.

Megyn Kelly has the goods. She has thirty-one pages of texts between attorneys Ashleigh Merchant, the "badass" lawyer representing Michael Roman, a former campaign official for Trump and a co-defendant in Willis' "racketeering case," and Terrence Bradley, Wade’s friend and former lawyer. They did not want you to see these texts because their sex secrets could blow up Fani's racketeering case against Trump.

The texts show Willis and Wade’s affair began prior to him being hired to prosecute Trump in November 2021 (something they both denied under oath). When Bradley took the stand, he seemingly forgot it all -- claiming ignorance and a faulty memory -- also under oath.

Here is the Twitter thread than contains the key texts. Click the image to read the tweets thread. Click each individual tweet for large size. Lawfare

Willis and her ex-lover, Nathan Wade, have both been referred to the Georgia State Bar for ethics violations. The pair face two complaints lodged by the American Accountability Foundation (AAF), a government watchdog group.

The AAF alleges Wade lied under oath about his relationship with Willis and that Willis admitted to using campaign funds for personal use. The AAF requests the opening of disciplinary proceedings against the pair for violations of the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct. Letitia James

"UndercoverDC" journalist, Mel Witte, has published a report about New York's attorney general, Letitia James, who just secured a $454 million judgment against Donald Trump. Witte points out that James has been a lifelong public servant, and other than a mishap in the 2010s where she neglected to list the Brooklyn brownstone she owns and rents out on her financial disclosure forms, she hasn’t had any public scandals -- until this -- a very long thread of tweets showing James' expenditures that have been underwriting her lavish lifestyle

Witte says, the first thing you’ll notice is how a politician running for reelection in a safe seat uses their campaign funds to supplement their lifestyles to a degree middle America could never dream of. In 2023 alone, James spent over $28,500 on hotels and over $15,000 of that was spent on luxury hotels in Puerto Rico (winter) and another $5,700 on the Democratic Party's #1 resort of Martha's Vineyard (summer).


Then there’s the airfare. In the 5 years she’s been the New York State AG, James’ has spent over $84,000 on airfare to fly herself all over the country. This includes private jet rentals. Lawfare

She’s billed her campaign over $20,000 per year for meals, and these aren’t large catering events. There are receipts for everything from $18 at Dunkin Donuts to $60 at Dave & Busters to $165 at an oyster bar on Martha's Vineyard, and then $700 at a steakhouse in Brooklyn. Then there are thousands spent on Uber and Lyft. Tens of thousands are spent on “office” everywhere, from Target to BJ’s wholesale. Over $7,000 was dropped at a nightclub in NYC and billed as “office.”

Witte continues -- the multiple stays at the Beverly Hills Wilshire, the $65,000 in “reimbursements” to “campaign consultants,” which could literally be anything.

Speaking of campaign consultants, can anyone tell me why a state Attorney General would need to spend over $300,000 in a single year on campaign consultants when they just won re-election the previous November? What could James possibly be consulting on?

Furthermore, why do these million-dollar “campaign consultancy firms” always seem to have been run out of random two-bedroom apartments?

When a politician is paying all their expenses out of their campaign funds, it's easy to see how a "public servant" can amass a fortune of $15 million.

Has James been so busy trying to destroy the former president, that she overlooked the fact that maybe somebody might take a look at her lifestyle?

It appears that way.

Nasty Jack Smith has been put on "Hold"

The U.S. Supreme Court is set to play a significant role in the 2024 election as it determines if Trump has presidential immunity from criminal charges, and if he can stay on the ballot in multiple states.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday agreed to decide whether former President Donald Trump can be tried on criminal charges that he conspired to overturn the results of the 2020 election. In a one-page unsigned order, the justices ordered a federal appeals court to continue to keep on hold its ruling rejecting Trump’s claims of immunity from prosecution, and they fast-tracked the case for oral argument in late April, and this action has sent the lunatics on the Left into outer space!

Smith claimed the DC trial would be done in time to prepare for May 20 trial in Florida. Now the DC trial is indefinitely postponed. The Supreme Court’s decision to keep the pretrial proceedings frozen is a blow to special counsel Jack Smith’s effort to bring Trump to trial this year. Smith has charged Trump with four felonies stemming from his bid to subvert the 2020 presidential election.

This action has prompted the most aggressive voices on the Left to begin a campaign of attacks against Supreme Court justices -- no, not all of the justices -- just the conservatives on the court.

Note, explosive rhetoric attacking the Supreme Court is never considered "incitement" when it comes from the Left

Anyway, as Smith's "insurrection" case implodes, his "classified documents" case is heating up. There's a big battle brewing over Trump’s requests to unseal a trove of evidence that Smith strongly opposes for reasons as yet unknown.

Other lawfare actions

Alvin Bragg is due in six weeks, so we're on hold to see where that will go, but victories still to come include SCOTUS denying Colorado and all 14th Amendment challenges; SCOTUS is likely to side with Fischer in Fischer v United States; and throw out the cooked-up Enron Jan. 6 "obstruction charge" against Trump and three-hundred political dissidents. Then there's the ultimate battle in November

Real Americans must turn out to vote in numbers never seen before and only imagined in the warped skulls of career political consultants.

We need to cast 100 MILLION votes for Trump -- that's right, to beat these cheating bastards at the polls we will need upwards of 100 MILLION votes for Trump.

It can't be allowed to end with a mere dismissal of cases. It can only end when the architects and perpetrators lose their law licenses and are hounded out of public life, forever.

And when their tearful pleas of "But you promised!" to their Deep State puppeteers go unheeded.

Do not understimate the ability of this conspiracy of incompetent psychopaths to do damage as they are dragged down. By 1944 the Nazi regime in Germany was in tatters, but they killed a lot of people before they were finally deracinated as a significant power in the world. And the example of how to run a sick totalitarian regime was tranported too and took root in our own Universities here in the US. Remember ideology is not the driving force. It’s merely an instrument for people who can’t do much themselves but thirst for power.

The NY Judge O’Keefe story had the silly gym video BUT O’Keefe spoke with a woman who was asked on a date by the Judge while he was handling her divorce and custody matter. Was back in 1979 but with the “new rules” on sexual harassment never ending it’d likely enough to get him off the bench.

Lots of the lawyers’ comments during the Fani hearing about her vested interest, motive, etc., sure sounded to me as though they would also apply, in spades, to Miss Letitia. The way she is celebrating the accumulating interest is downright macabre.

Only generations who have never studied history can not see that “Lawfare” is a pure stalinist tactic to purge opposition to their agenda.

The really interesting part of this is that if Donald Trump had ever done anything in his entire life that is even remotely prosecutable they would have found it and trashed him mercilessly with it. If Donald Trump could be found to have so much as made an improperly documented trade, or stolen a chocolate bar from the CVS they would by now have jailed him for it as a felonious criminal.

Instead they have these rigged trials with overtly biased judges. They have passed blatantly unconstitutional bill of attainder laws specifically aimed to take down this one man. They openly admitted that nobody else needs to worry about being caught up with that specific law. They cooked up fake election interference charges that are completely unsupportable. If they were so confident in their ability to win an election against this guy they would never go to these lengths to keep him out.

They have to know something that we don’t. Trump and the MAGA movement are not stoppable by overt legal and electoral means. So then by any means necessary. They must resort to illegal means to try and stop this man from usurping their authority over the federal government. And they see it coming too.

If Trump gets into office most federal departments must be immediately defunded in their entirety. Eliminate the federal workers union. Nothing remains that isn’t specifically enumerated in the constitution as a duty to perform. I like what Cal Thomas said... He likes the idea of a government shutdown. Only essential personnel should report to work. Most of the federal government should be fired with prejudice and that will not go down as a popular move that’s for certain. Who around here thinks that’s going to happen without the deployment of National Guard troops while the antifa and blm takes to the streets to wreak destruction in your city’s and towns. Nothing short of civil war.

That’s why the obamas are busy trying to insulate their political appointees and diversity hires from being dismissed in the next administration. They want a permanent and unaccountable bureaucracy to be the 4th branch of government.

Thela Hun Ginjeet people... heat in the jungle.
This is a dangerous place, this is a dangerous place.

Trump has a criminal trial in NYC scheduled to begin at the end of the month on charges that he falsified business records to pay Stormy Daniels hush money. The state argues it was an illegal campaign contribution. Trump contends the payments were to protect his business image. Trump could get convicted in April, and then need to file an appeal. Tricky Nikki is hoping this causes Trump’s support to crash, and it could hurt Trump in November that he was convicted.

Fulton county is a joke. The blacks went on about how corrupt whitey is, and what do they do first day in power? Belly right up to the trough. It’s as if whitey wasn’t wrong for it and now it’s their turn. Frikkin scum.

There is no violation of campaign law here. The payment was not money raised for campaigning, it was paid by a business entity controlled by Trump.

Strictly a private matter.

Imean oif Pelosi pays a plastic surgeon for a face lift and pays him cash to look better for her campaign...that is not a campaign contribution !

There will be no conviction, and if there is...then it will be overturned on appeal.

Campaign funds and non profits.

The corruption of Letitia James, with endless dishonest bookkeeping and criminal self-enrichment, while simultaneously going after Trump for the invented crime of misstating the value of his property based on whatever Letitia James thinks his property should be valued at, rises to the moral repugnance of a child molester.

Democrat Letitia James is already the proud member of the party of baby murder, child mutilation, child grooming, and forcing children and teenagers to share compromising situations with members of the opposite sex (including exposed genatalia) in places like locker rooms and showers. She and her party endorse the destruction of female sports by allowing biological makes to compete, robbing the biological females of the successes they have earned and in some cases even putting them into physical danger.

Now Democrats like Letitia James have extended their corrupt, immoral, lawless behavior into the execution of law itself by weaponizing their offices as public servants to serve their own political interests.

Democrats like Letitia James are engaging in WAR against US. And it will not end well. She and her ilk will NOT change. They will NEVER admit the error of their ways. They won’t stop until they are forcibly stopped.

This particular case will end either with the smackdown of all smackdowns in the legal system, or it will end in violence that will make the Civil War look like a peaceful protest.

And regardless of who wins this war, Letitia James and the many like her will NOT escape the consequences of their actions.

They love to blather about the dangerous urban whites and talk of civil war as some nefarious conspiracy. But all the while they stir the pot and keep pushing an agenda that gets more insane by the day.

We’re on the verge of WW3 and we have transgendered members of the military giving public lectures on why everyone should share “their” preferred pronouns in “their” email footers. What?!?!

One of my degrees is in English. There is no government entity with an assigned duty to determine which words are in the “official” lexicon. Spelling, punctuation, grammar, proper diction, and proper styles are the domain of academia and are formed and reformed based on broad consensus.

Until recently there has NEVER been the inkling of an idea that proper grammar and its accouterments were something to force upon people. These are merely an effort to unify the language to avoid chaos. If everyone had his or her own way of spelling a word, pretty soon no one would understand what anyone else was saying in their writings.

But back to my point. The left talks about normal, average, everyday folks as if we are criminals and terrorists because we wish, no we DEMAND, to have a government that represents US. To them it is simply unthinkable for them to back off and quit trying to force their perverted lifestyle on everyone else on the planet.

But they must come to understand, regardless of whether in their minds it is our fault or not, if they continue to push the outcome will be violence. It will be war. They have already committed acts of war against us, but they seem bewildered when we stand up and say we’re not going to accept this.
