  • Travesty: Why is John Eastman even on trial?

    Eastman is facing a communist kangaroo court in California. The latest morphed action against President Trump and his allies -- the prosecutions and trials by far-left Democrat-donating radicals, following the Russia hoax, and the multiple failed impeachments, pretty well leaves many of us questioning whether the U.S. is still a "democracy." Crazed leftwing dictators throw their opponents in jail. Democracies don't, or so it seemed. Mark Steyn, in a must-read, has called this shift "the new normal" and never until now has this darkened America's doors. The rot through the justice system is so extensive it now extends to arresting...
  • Case against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton at state Senate trial is falling apart

    "We have no evidence..." Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton's state Senate impeachment trial is underway in the heart of Texas, and the prosecution's case appears to be crumbling before our eyes. While media outlets have long portrayed Paxton as a controversial figure, the trial's proceedings reveal a different story – one of weak evidence and a politically motivated agenda. The central accusation against Paxton revolves around allegations that he abused his office to benefit a friend and donor, Nate Paul, an Austin real estate investor. However, a closer look at the prosecution's case reveals a glaring lack of concrete evidence...

    Never before has the American people been subjected to the obnoxious spectacle of a former president being relentlessly pursued by craven partisans using government (read: taxpayer-funded) resources. One explanation involves Mr. Trump's unique ability to bring out the worst in his enemies. Actually, it may also be caused by a common character weakness among his opponents. One would need an enormous score card to keep track of all the indictments and other litigations being heaped upon Mr. Trump. He has thus employed an army of attorneys in order to resist the onslaught. Being a billionaire has certainly come in handy...
  • So Biden won’t make Trump’s legal troubles an issue in 2024 campaign?

    Cedric Richmond, the co-chair of President Biden’s reelection campaign recently said that Biden is not looking to make former President Donald Trump’s legal troubles central to his 2024 message. In an interview with ABC "This Week" co-anchor Martha Raddatz, Richmond stated: "The president has said from the beginning that he wanted an independent Justice Department ... so we're not going to comment. We're not going to focus on Donald Trump's legal problems. We will let the justice system take care of what the justice system should take care of.” An “independent Justice Department?” Biden’s “Justice Department” is as independent from...

    Former President Donald Trump’s Georgia election interference trial will be televised and live-streamed, the judge handling the case said Thursday. The legal proceedings will be broadcast on a YouTube stream operated by the court for television, radio, and still photography will be allowed, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee said Thursday during a hearing on the level of media coverage that will be allowed inside the courtroom. “In line with the spirit of transparency here, we have followed Judge [Robert] McBurney’s model, and we have been livestreaming all of our major proceedings on a Fulton County-provided YouTube channel,” McAfee...

And the courts are ruled by complete partisan monsters who use the iron fist of the law to humiliate and destroy those who do not believe in their same Marxist utopian vision for America.This week the families and friends of the five Proud Boys political prisoners flew in to Washington DC for the sentencing today.U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly oversaw an all-day hearing Tuesday in the...

    Let’s cut to the chase: the tsunami of anti-Trump indictments isn’t aimed to ensure that he is the 2024 GOP nominee, nor to stymie him with a tangle of competing, distracting, and wildly expensive court battles at the height of primary season. Though either could be the result. This scribe informed you, last summer, of the purpose of the scorched-earth campaign that also encompasses the January 6th Committee farce, psychological terrorism against Capitol protesters, and harassment of former Trump officials and advisors. Quoting your correspondent back then: “(T)his overkill is really about inoculating Democrats regarding efforts already underway to rig...

    It is August: another day, another partisan Democrat indictment of Trump, while Americans either cheer, scream, or shrug as they head once more unto the beach, slather on sunblock, and sip a banana republic daquiri. Emulating the Biden administration’s Department of Justice’s special counsel, Jack Smith, once again a partisan local Democratic prosecutor in a one-party jurisdiction has stretched state laws to indict a former president from their opposing party who is also the leading candidate for its 2024 nomination. As previously demonstrated by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, Georgia’s Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis will receive the plaudits...

    A member of the Proud Boys has disappeared ahead of his sentencing on charges related to the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol, according to an arrest warrant unsealed on Friday. Christopher Worrell was convicted earlier this year on seven counts related to his conduct during the insurrection, including assaulting a group of Capitol Police officers with pepper spray and lying to investigators. He was set to be sentenced on Friday, with prosecutors seeking 14 years in prison. However, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest on Tuesday, and his sentencing hearing was cancelled on Wednesday, court records...

    When former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saw the indictment of Trump, she observed that, “it’s interesting to see how similar they are to some of the charges recommended by the January 6 committee and I commend, again, the committee.” Soumya Dayananda, a senior investigator for the House Democrat committee claimed that, “the committee’s work provided this path.” A New York Times article described the indictment as having a “narrative that was nearly identical”. The Democrat prosecutor’s team admitted its dependence on the Democrat congressional committee by citing its work in its demand that the former president’s trial take place in...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) urged former President Trump and his supporters not to interfere with the legal process as it plays out in Georgia following Monday night’s indictment. “As a nation built on the rule of law, we urge Mr. Trump, his supporters, and his critics to allow the legal process to proceed without outside interference,” the top Democrats in Congress wrote in a joint statement issued late Monday. Their request comes after Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) announced the fourth indictment against Trump since April. The 19 co-defendants...

    A two page docket report was posted, then removed, from the Fulton County, Georgia court website today concerning the impending indictment of former President Donald Trump. The incident led to corporate media outlets and news wires originally reporting that an indictment has been handed down Monday. It had not. The briefly public docket report revealed that District Attorney Willis will be seeking a range of charges against Trump including racketeering, conspiracy, and making false statements – it is not currently known if additional charges will be included. The apparent errant posting of charges is just the latest in controversies that...

    The corrupt Georgia Democrat prosecutor is going to charge Trump along with MULTIPLE defendants with her indictments this week. According to the latest leak to CNN, Fani Willis will seek more than a dozen indictments against Trump and people in his orbit. The DA will use conspiracy and racketeering charges to sweep up multiple defendants at once. NBC News reported: If Donald Trump is indicted in Fulton County, Georgia, it will not be the first time the former president will answer to criminal charges in a courtroom. But this time, the entire process will likely play out on live television....

    As the United States of America has descended into card-carrying Banana Republic status, there are any number of things we can point to as huge steps in the wrong direction. The J6 Committee was one giant leap for Banana Republickind.It was very satisfying to see Liz Cheney get the boot from politics for her turncoat role with the Dems’ J6 witch hunt, but she and everyone else on the committee should have been punished for wasting considerable taxpayer resources for a kangaroo court show trial. It was a national embarrassment that — in the minds of Democrats — lent some...

    If you read nothing else this week, read Victor Davis Hanson’s article in American Greatness detailing how Obama began “the most radical revolutions” in our history. As legal matters -- the lawfare waged against former President Trump and the Department of Justice’s pussyfooting around the Biden bribery took this week’s center stage, it’s useful to note his remarks on the weaponization of justice in this country. Here’s a sample: Administrations and their efforts to stock the justice department with supporters come and go. But in the last decade the Left has viewed the Department of Justice as a political extension...
  • Judge Chutkan's Controversial Denial to Trump Team's Hearing Request Previews Really Rough Seas Ahead

    Red State ^ | 8/8/23 | Bonchie
    On Tuesday morning, Donald Trump’s legal team made what most would consider a very normal, reasonable request. Yet, it was quickly denied in a move that previews really rough seas ahead for the former president. The controversy surrounds a hearing on a recent DOJ-requested protective order against Trump relating to a post he made on Truth Social attacking Mike Pence. Judge Tanya Chutkan, who is overseeing the D.C.-based election-related case, quickly set a hearing date of August 11th. The problem? It wasn’t immediately clear that either of Trump’s primary lawyers could make that date. That led to a request that...

    Former President Donald Trump Monday lashed out at special counsel Jack Smith and U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan even as the judge prepares to consider a gag order in advance of his trial for trying to overturn the 2020 election. Deriding Chutkan as “the judge of (Smith’s) dreams,” Trump called for a new jurist to be appointed to oversee his historic trial even though his defense team has not yet made any such motion in court. “Deranged Jack Smith is going before his number one draft pick, the Judge of his “dreams” (WHO MUST BE RECUSED!), in an attempt...

    Not only is it hard to run a kangaroo court when the world is watching, but this will also finally allow the nation to hear the evidence for claiming election fraud. I don’t always agree with the strategies that Trump and his lawyers choose to defend the myriad charges being made against him, but one of them is brilliant: Trump is demanding that his trial in Jack Smith’s poorly disguised “insurrection” case be televised. Not only is it hard to run a kangaroo court when the world is watching, but this will finally allow the nation to hear all the...

    Once Trump announced a rally in D.C., he and his supporters were doomed. Coincidentally, I’m sure, in the lead-up to his being taken off the air at Fox News, Tucker Carlson and his team were investigating events on January 6—the same events that are serving as the basis for Jack Smith’s creative indictment against Donald Trump. One of the things that Fox News prevented from airing was an interview with former Capitol Hill Police Chief Steven Sund, during which he told Tucker that the FBI had “a lot of operatives” in the crowd. There was more, and it all feeds...

    In an announcement that has sent shockwaves through the nation, former president Donald Trump declared that his arrest is imminent. This declaration, shocking as it is, should be a cause for concern for anyone who values the principles upon which our nation was built. As citizens, it is our duty to scrutinize the implications of this ongoing political assault. In Mr. Trump's words, this investigation is a "witch hunt," an attempt to weaponize the law enforcement apparatus against him. It appears to be an unprecedented attack on a former president, transforming political disagreements into legal battles, an alarming trend that...
