Why the Trump hush money trial verdict
is peak ‘lawfare’

Original Article

Posted By: Moritz55, 6/9/2024 8:01:14 PM

The Democrats finally got their ounce of Donald Trump’s flesh in a Manhattan courtroom last week but like Shakespeare’s Antonio in “The Merchant of Venice,” the bloodlust may be their own undoing. The guilty verdict should be reversed by the New York appellate or federal courts and likely will be at some point — but perhaps only after the clear election interference objective of the Democrats has been met. Never before have state prosecutors charged a defendant with federal election reporting violations (state courts don’t have jurisdiction) and never have non-disclosure agreements been found by a jury in any criminal trial to be a reportable federal campaign expenditure.

So where was this "former Democrat chief counsel to the House Judiciary Committee " doing WHILE these legal muggings were going on?

Worth the read. (Ignore “Jan 6 riots”). But everything else was spot on. Interesting commentary coming from Epstein. No friend of MAGA.

He was the Dems lead counsel for the Clinton Impeachment defense, also for defending Reno and the Govt during the Waco investigation. He was the prize puppy of the Crook, Conyers, raised up to be an attack dog...with the appearance, and surface personality of a Golden/Doodle.

The Dems should reap what they have sown, but the Republicans are too weak-kneed and spineless to do it.

Hunter Biden’s helpers exposed 4 replies

The malign influence of the deep state was revealed in a Delaware federal courtroom Tuesday. FBI Special Agent Erika Jensen acknowledged the provenance of the notorious MacBook Pro that Hunter Biden abandoned at a computer repair shop in April 2019. This is the same laptop, filled to the brim with fresh evidence of the first son’s felonies, seized by the FBI in December of that year. The G-men and the Justice Department sat on the device until the statute of limitations expired on the most significant crimes contained therein. This is the same laptop that 51 former intelligence officials swore was “Russian disinformation” on the eve of the 2020 election.

Do not expect the radical left to survey the wreckage of socialism and communism in history and accept that statism impoverishes people and erodes their freedoms. There will never be admissions by our elite that progressivism exists mainly for the acquisition of power by the utopian and virtue-signaling few, who ensure that they are never subject to the baleful implementation of their ideological agendas on the rest of us. Still, leftists look around at what they have done to America in the last four years and implicitly know that the plan did not work, the people detested it, or both.

Craft Ventures co-founder David Sacks joined "Kudlow" on Friday, telling host Larry Kudlow the fundraiser he and another Silicon Valley venture capitalist recently held for former President Trump had "tremendous turnout" and exceeded expectations. "When we agreed to do this event, we started off– the question was whether we could just raise $5 million, and that was the goal because as you well know, the Bay Area, is sort of a liberal bastion, and so we thought that $5 million might be a big lift," Sacks said. Instead, the fundraiser co-hosted by Chamath Paliphapitiya ultimately wound up bringing the Republican presidential candidate quite a bit more than that

A majority of middle-class Americans are experiencing financial hardship that they expect will continue for the rest of their lives, according to a new poll. Findings published by the National True Cost of Living Coalition show that 65% of Americans whose incomes are 200% above the national poverty line – which is about $62,300 for a family of four, often considered middle class – said they are struggling financially. Respondents include those with high school diplomas and graduate degrees as well as blue- and white-collar workers who live in both rural and urban America.

For 18 months I have predicted that the next presidential election will be in large measure a referendum between those who are so pathologically hostile to President Trump that they will tolerate any means to keep him from returning to the White House, and those who are so appalled at the corruption of the legal and political systems by the Democrats that they are prepared to vote for Trump whatever their misgivings about him, to preserve constitutional democracy. President Biden had already publicly chastised his attorney general, Merrick Garland, for not having indicted Trump earlier. The prosecutors were so incompetent and Trump’s counsel adequately successful in getting some of

Reacting to Donald Trump’s hush-money conviction in Manhattan on 30 May, the French writer Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry asked on X: “Has there been a single left-of-centre person… who has said: ‘Hey, nakedly partisan prosecutions of your political opponents goes against the values of liberal democracy, rule of law, justice, and everything my side claims to support?’” A number of progressive figures have, in fact, decried lawfare against Trump and the Trumpians. The law professor Samuel Moyn, the civil libertarian Glenn Greenwald, the left economist Christian Parenti, and the heterodox Marxists clustered around Sublation magazine, among others, have maintained that in a democracy, politics should mainly be conducted in the voting booth

Israeli troops discovered an entrance to a Hamas tunnel inside a child's bedroom in Rafah on Thursday. The IDF says it recovered a trove of weapons and explosives from the tunnel. The operation is the latest of what Israel calls its "precise, intelligence-based, targeted operations" inside Rafah. "This week, the troops located a tunnel shaft inside a child's room, and a butcher's knife next to it. In addition, the troops identified six terrorists near a school in the area of the troops. The terrorists were eliminated by a UAV and tank fire," the IDF said in a statement.

During a conversation with "Kill Tony" comedian Tony Hinchcliffe on Wednesday, podcast host Joe Rogan discussed his view of the political ramifications of the prosecution of Donald Trump. "What's scary is how many Democrats are willing to allow this kind of stuff to happen. A lot of them are aware of it," Rogan said. "Especially if you wanted to look at past presidents with the same scrutiny... Imagine if, when Obama got into office, he decided to prosecute Dick Cheney and George Bush for crimes against humanity... Even what Obama did -- during the administration, they dropped a drone on a US citizen. No trial, no nothing. Boom."

If you aren’t stunned by the $70 million+ in "small dollar" campaign contributions to the campaign of former President Donald Trump that were made in the first 72 hours after the verdicts in his Manhattan trial, then you don’t know much about politics, because nothing like this sort of fundraising weekend has ever happened before. Skeptical about the relative scale of this Krakatoa of contributions? Don’t believe me. Believe the Democrats.

Let me take you back nearly four years − to late October 2020. Then-President Donald Trump and candidate Joe Biden duked it out in their second and final presidential debate before the election. Trump made references to the recently published New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s now-infamous laptop. “They’re calling it the laptop from hell,” Trump said. How right he was. The laptop just made an official appearance in federal court this week. More on that shortly. During the 2020 debate, Biden angrily defended his son (and himself), conveniently reciting a letter by so-called former intelligence officials penned just days before the debate: "We do not know

He explained: State-sponsored news just like what you have in Russia and their station which is called Pravda and means truth which is ironic, right? All of this goes away under a Donald Trump administration. Why? Because he doesn’t want to hear anything negative being said about him.

The conventional wisdom concerning vice-presidential picks is that they don’t really matter because voters focus on the top of the ticket in presidential elections. This is ordinarily true, but 2024 is no ordinary election. This time the winner will be the oldest president ever inaugurated, so it’s eminently possible that his vice-president will be called on to finish his term. We know what that means if Biden wins, so Trump’s running mate will receive more than the usual amount of voter scrutiny. Thus, he must not choose another irascible white male or any Florida resident. This eliminates all but one

A new crime wave has reportedly hit the streets of New York City as illegal migrants are deliberately jumping in front of moving cars to extort money from terrified drivers. The New York Post has reported on this disturbing trend, where migrants brazenly risk their lives in an attempt to financially exploit unsuspecting drivers. The illegal aliens have escalated their dangerous scam, particularly in Brooklyn’s bustling streets. Dashcam footage obtained by The Post vividly captures one such incident on Flatbush Avenue South. The video shows a migrant deliberately leaping into the path of a car, forcing the driver to make a hazardous swerve to avoid a collision.
