In a scathing rebuke of a New York Judge’s decision to fine Donald Trump a staggering $355 million, the entrepreneur and media personality Kevin O’Leary minced no words, denouncing the ruling as “unjust,” “appalling” and ultimately “un-American.”[Snip]“That fact that he was found guilty, you might as well find guilty every real estate developer on Earth,” O’Leary said in an exclusive interview with The Post.[Snip]“I don’t understand where someone got hurt…What developer doesn’t ask for the highest price valued for any building they built?” O’Leary said.[Snip]He later added, “If this judgment sticks. Every developer must be jailed. They must be found guilty. They must be put out of business.

Both the judge and the DA, along with anyone they admit was directing them, need to be Nifonged. With their choice of hanging, impalement, breaking on the wheel or burning at the stake. Publicly. If the bureaucrats don't fear the people, they will just keep doing this.

This " judgement " put the hate that dems, rinos, deep state, swamp, globalists and the MSM have for Americans and America as founded, into focus. They believe it's their right to rule and that we're all disposable. Their treatment of Trump is meant to be a lesson to all of us.

A fitting end to Engoron's travesty would be not getting a dime from Trump and losing billions of dollars in business and tax revenue for New York. We'll see how long he keeps that big stupid smile on his face.

It would take a bus load of calculators to figure out how many people denounce the ruling as “unjust,” “appalling” and ultimately “un-American." Arthur Engoron must be a swimming in pay-off money by now. Untraceable bills, for sure. And he needs a haircut!

Sounds like the US could use a new deck of cards, so to speak, harking back to the Gulf War and Mr Bush’ deck of 52 Iraqi most wanted. It would include all of the communist apparatchiks engaged in this lawfare, including both the wicked witches, that is the one in the north and the one in the south. It doesn't necessarily have to mean arrest, either, just a visit during the night or unexpectedly, say, on vacation or out in public.

Where is Trump going to find a bank not located in New York to come up with the nearly one billion so he can appeal the decision (while interest accumulates every single day)?

Real estate valuations are opinions. Unless they are so far out of line with reality, they can't be wrong or false. Also, the banks testified that they did not accept the valuations at 100% in making the loans because of the uncertainty of market conditions for commercial real estate. Essentially, what something is worth today might not be what it is worth in 10 years. We are seeing this now, with many empty office buildings losing most of their value post-pandemic. A statement of someone's financial condition is just a snapshot at a moment in time. And really, was there any doubt that Trump's financial condition was strong enough to justify the loans?

#11, he doesn't have to pay the judgment while he appeals. He can get an appeal bond where a surety company guarantees the payment if he loses. True, interest will accumulate, but as along as he has the money, he is presumably receiving interest or appreciation on his assets.

By saying “Every real estate developer must be jailed if this judgement sticks,” and asking, “What developer doesn’t ask for the highest price value for any building they build,” Kevin should have us thinking about what could be coming down the road. The omnipotent Attorney General of New York, Leticia James has developed the playbook for threatening and/or prosecuting any real estate developer who is influential and in political opposition. Please, Superior Courts, put an end to this before it gets more out of hand?

Today is the anniversary of the birth of America’s great or greatest president, Abraham Lincoln. As a politician and as president, Lincoln was a profound student of the Constitution and constitutional history. Perhaps most important, Lincoln was America’s indispensable teacher of the moral ground of political freedom at the exact moment when the country was on the threshold of abandoning what he called its “ancient faith” that all men are created equal.

The awarding of nearly $90 million to the second-rate advice columnist E. Jean Carroll will doubtless be remembered for generations as the greatest miscarriage of justice in contemporary American history. Jean Carroll’s case was not just ludicrous on the face of it, but between the judge, the “experts” who testified, and the mechanisms by which the case even came to be, it’s impossible for any ordinary person in the West to see this as anything more than the continuation of a series of hoaxes perpetrated on former President Donald J. Trump with the desire to keep him from re-entering the Oval Office in January 2025.

President Joe Biden is considering an immigration crackdown that closes the border if more than 8,500 try to cross in one day, a law repeatedly used by former President Donald Trump. The law would, if the migrant crisis reached those numbers per day, unilaterally enact a sweeping ban at the southern border, according to three people familiar with the deliberations. The administration, stymied by lawmakers who rejected a negotiated border bill earlier this month, has been exploring options that Biden could deploy on his own without congressional approval.

The “Resolution to Create a Comprehensive Whole School Safety Policy,” which is on the board’s Thursday meeting agenda, would prohibit the 39 city schools that continue to utilize school-resource officers from continuing to do so next school year. If approved, the resolution would direct Chicago Public School leaders to develop “a holistic approach to school safety at every District school” that “addresses root causes” of violence, and that focuses on “restorative justice”

In 85 theaters, Reiner’s bigoted attack on Christians who dared to vote for Donald Trump earned just $38,415 over four days.

The Disney Grooming Syndicate is blaming its string of box office flops on sexist fans, and I’m finding this nothing short of glorious: Everyone says “It’s the movies, stupid,” which is an easy thing for people to say. More appealing movies are a great way to jump the political issues. But more and more, our audience (or the segment of the audience that has been politicized) equate the perceived messaging in a film as a quality issue. They won’t say they find female empowerment distasteful in The Marvels or Star Wars the latest trilogy starring Daisy Ridley], but they will say they don’t like those movies because they are “bad.”

Earlier this week a couple of propagandists, also identified as scholars, released a ranking of U.S. presidents. It has about as much credibility as the Clinton Russia hoax. But it does reinforce the gaslighting narrative that so many of our institutions are engaged in. The list, part of a Presidential Greatness Project compiled by a pair of university professors, ranks Joe Biden as the 14th best president. Ever. We’re talking the Joe Biden who is in office today. There has been no other president from an earlier era named Joe Biden to be confused with. The academic malpractice doesn’t end there.
