Will Democrats Pay a Price for Their Cynical, Crumbling Lawfare Strategy?

Loading

by Josh Hammer

President Joe Biden, who wears bespoke sneakers to prevent embarrassing collapses and whose command of the English language rivals that of most kindergarteners, is in bad political shape. Uncle Joe’s reelection campaign faces an uphill climb, given his disastrous handling of the economy — including a formal recession and four-decade-high inflation — and his abetting a catastrophic and historically unprecedented invasion on our southern border. Cynicism and a sense of malaise are ubiquitous, and Americans overwhelmingly think the nation is headed in the wrong direction. Monday’s New York Times/Siena College poll reflects this: former President Donald Trump currently leads in five of the six most crucial swing states.

Given their terrible candidate, the candidate’s awful track record, and their tremendous (if unjustified) fear that a second Trump term would pose an existential threat to “our democracy” (which they disingenuously claim to care about), it is unsurprising that Democrats have resorted to some of the slimiest tactics imaginable to derail Trump’s comeback bid and push their senile octogenarian across the November finish line. Properly skeptical of their chances to topple Trump in a fair mano-a-mano, the Democrat-lawfare complex in 2023 conjured up four separate criminal prosecutions — two federal probes and two state probes — targeting the 45th president. After all, if you can’t beat him, then prosecute and incarcerate him! All in the name of “our democracy,” naturally.

Suffice it to say that the Democrat lawfare complex’s brazen, cynical attempt to subvert our constitutional order in the name of saving it has not gone according to plan.

In Washington, D.C., Special Counsel Jack Smith’s crown-jewel case against Trump, pertaining to the 2020 presidential election and the Jan. 6 jamboree at the U.S. Capitol, has been interrupted by the U.S. Supreme Court. The justices stepped in to assess the thorny constitutional question of the scope of immunity from criminal prosecution for former presidents, and a decision is not expected until late June. The most likely result is a mixed opinion that holds some “core” Article II presidential functions are immune from post-presidency prosecution, but other acts are not. This would require a remand to the trial court for fact-finding to determine which legal category the acts in Smith’s indictment fall into. That trial court finding could then be appealed, too. There is virtually no chance Smith can wrap this all up before November.

In Florida, Smith’s other federal case has not been more successful. The Florida prosecution, pertaining to Trump’s post-presidency handling of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate, had at least some potential on the legal merits. But Smith wildly overplayed his hand by charging Trump with violating the controversial World War I-era Espionage Act, and the proceedings have frequently been set back due to the strenuous demands of the Classified Information Procedures Act — a 1980 statute first introduced in the Senate, ironically, by then-Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.). Recently, Judge Aileen Cannon indefinitely postponed the trial start date, which had initially been scheduled for May 20. There is again little to no chance Smith can reach a jury before November.

The case in Fulton County, Georgia, which once seemed the most perilous of them all due to Georgia’s sprawling Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, the far-left Atlanta jury pool, and the potential for high-profile prosecution witnesses, has gone totally off the rails.

Remember Jeff Sessions?
He was of the old school that believed cordiality, congeniality and mutual respect was built into high office, no matter the party affiliation.
He was shocked how dems treated him.

But dems look at opposition officials as an enemies, not fellow Americans.

Remember when committee leadership would change when the majority on Congress/Senate would change?
Then dems demanded more when they lost and congenial GOP gave in, but dems never gave an inch when they won.

So, will dems pay a price for their lying campaign against outsider, Trump?
Doubt it.

All these cases, including those already concluded and under appeal, were nothing but shit from the beginning. But the left doesn’t care. The fact that none of these cases are based on factual evidence, real laws broken, follow the rules of due process or respect Constitutional rights is an open secret and leftists just LOVE it. They loves them some good, old fashioned fascism. This is how the party of crime, political violence, terrorism support, infanticide and socialism operates.

They have paid the price. Whether or not they can cheat, lie and commit enough fraud to overcome that price again remains to be seen.

“Take the stand, Donald, or admit you’re a coward.”

So, you know nothing about the Constitution.
That’s no surprise.
dems in Congress demanded all people give up the right to protect themselves from self-incrimination with their: “if you’r innocent what have you got to worry about?”
However, joe’s prosecutors might just be playing dumb to trick Trump onto the stand.
Seems that they are really dumb, tho.

Yeah, “If you’re innocent, what have you got to worry about?”

“Well, I have faced and am facing 5 trials when I haven’t done a damned thing wrong, so YOU figure it out.”

He can’t trust the “justice” system.

All of the convicted felons filling our prisons are also innocent.

05/27/24 – With democracy itself on the line, the 2024 election will almost certainly be the nation’s most consequential since 1860. It will also be the weirdest. There are two fundamental facts about this campaign that do not appear to be making much of an impact on what, at least today, seems to be close to a majority of the electorate. The first and more obvious one is that few people in history have ever been less qualified to hold a position of any responsibility, much less the most powerful position in the world, than Donald Trump. If elected, he will certainly deploy that power to destroy virtually everything Americans have historically held dear about the nation’s democratic traditions.

The second, less obvious, but no less objective fact is that Joe Biden has been a remarkably good president. Not everything has worked out, and one can certainly disagree with many of his decisions. His embrace of Bibi Netanyahu has clearly had disastrous consequences for Israel, Gaza, the United States, and likely for his own reelection prospects. But in terms of the way presidents are traditionally measured, Biden has been a smash. The U.S. economy is the envy of the world. Yes, inflation is higher than one would like, but jobs are plentiful, and so are raises for the people in them; wages are rising faster than inflation, as it happens. Violent crime is way down. Infrastructure investments are way up since 2020. Student loans are being forgiven. The labor movement is rebounding. We are leading the world in defending democracy in Ukraine. And yet, the danger of a Trump takeover remains as high as ever.

Consider just a few of Trump’s qualities that quite recently would have disqualified him in the eyes of all responsible voices in the discourse. I have no room to do justice to even a fraction, so I’ll have to stick to just keywords: insurrectionistelection denier; pathological liarcorruptracistantisemite; (digital) rapist; serial adultererIslamophobecon man; tax cheatpatsy to dictatorwannabe dictatorisolationistbully; psychopathically narcissistsociopath; almost certainly medically demented. We all know I could go on. (I haven’t even mentioned the Democrats’ single best issue: Trump’s proud boast that he was able to “kill Roe v. Wade.”)

So, what gives? Have roughly half of Americans of voting age lost their minds? Is Joe Biden really this bad a candidate? How is all this possible?

Multiple phenomena are at work, but the two most important are these: First is the fact that members of the mainstream media whose job it is to both inform and contextualize the nation’s politics have lost their nerve. Terrified of accusations of being “out of touch” at best and “liberally biased” at worst, they have abdicated any responsibility to render even the most fundamental judgments of what is and isn’t true when it comes to Trump. His lies and those of his representatives are repeated verbatim without challenge, much less correction. “Fact-check” columns after the fact do little to undo the damage of the original lies, threats, and plainly absurd statements Trump makes literally by the minute. What’s more, they routinely clean up his statements for him, making him appear far more rational and reasonable than he is, ignoring his consistently mangled syntax and nonsensical assertions (as well as his frequent confusion about who is president and who he is running against).

This mainstream media fear is the product of nearly a half-century of Republicans “working the refs,” complaining that liberal elites cannot understand or give fair coverage to the millions of Americans holding conservative views. Ben Bradlee by and large endorsed this view back when Ronald Reagan won his 1980 landslide, and it became part and parcel of mainstream journalistic practice with Trump’s surprise 2016 victory.

As William Greider, then a top editor at The Washington Post, noted, Reagan’s electoral success had been “quite traumatic for the press, editors, and reporters … because it seemed to confirm the message of the critics that the press was out of touch with the rest of the country.” He added, “It was a sense of ‘My God, they’ve elected this guy who nine months ago we thought was a hopeless clown.… [T]here’s something going on here, and we don’t understand, and we don’t want to get in the way.’” Bradlee, Greider’s boss, later observed a post-Watergate “return to deference” in the media, attributing this to “a subconscious feeling … that we were dealing with someone this time who really, really, really disapproved of us, disliked us, distrusted us, and that we ought not give him any opportunities to see he was right.”

Second in importance is the Democrats’ combination of an embarrassment of riches in terms of issues and inability to focus on the few—say, three of them—that would convince those famous swing voters that the choice between Trump and Biden is really no choice at all. Biden is a highly skilled politician with mainstream views who makes mistakes and has lost a step or two to age, yes, but who has proved himself extremely competent in office. He leads a party that is, yes, divided over Israel and Gaza but united in support of the rule of law, the norms of democracy, and the value of consensus. Trump and many of his followers are the kinds of people one routinely meets in a prison psych ward…

Democrats are a threat to our Constitutional republic and all our rights and freedoms.

Trump says he will only be a dictator on the first day.

Even though Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden puts on a comedy show every day, you DO understand what “humor” is, right? “Tongue in cheek” perhaps? Perhaps not, but when did Trump EVER exhibit even .01% of the totalitarianism the Democrats display every day?

President Trump’s worst offenses (Note this article predates his attempt to retain office using fraudulent electors and mob violence.)

Sam Bankman-Fried’s money (defrauded from investors) created that org.
Super-left, greg.

When an article starts off with a massive lie, I don’t finish it. Trump never “strong-armed” Zelensky. Even Zelensky said so (unless you think Zelensky lies. Do you think Zelensky lies?). It was, in fact, Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden that extorted Ukraine in order to protect his 50% of Hunter’s protective retainer Burisma paid him to protect their money laundering operation.

It is significant that the only thing you can come up with to “incriminate” Trump is a proven lie. You are, indeed, a pathetic loser.

It appears that she came to the realization that Biden is scum. But she was perfectly fine as he jailed political enemies, sexualized children, opened the borders, funded foreign wars and waged war against White people while cheering for them to become a minority. It took him criticizing Israel to anger her.

Lock his fascist ass up and throw away the key. Hold him without bail until January 21st, 2025.

It’s possible, actually, though much less likely. An authority known as inherent contempt allows the sergeant at arms of the House (or Senate) to arrest the person found in contempt and bringing them before that body for a full trial. If convicted, they’re imprisoned either until they agree to comply or until the two-year session of Congress ends.

“I Can No Longer in Good Conscience Continue to Represent This Administration” – Biden Interior Department Staffer Abruptly Resigns

She must have some semblance of a conscience and morality. How did she slip by the oversight to get in in the first place?

Would you like to hear her REASON for resigning, since Gateway Pundit’s headline only quoted half of the sentence?

“I can no longer in good conscience continue to represent this administration amid President Biden’s disastrous, continued support for Israel’s genocide in Gaza,” Interior assistant Lily Greenberg Call wrote.

A lie by deliberate omission. Gateway Pundit is trash propaganda.

Kapo.

Yeah, Trump has told you what the only acceptable Jewish view of the situation is.

Comrade Greggie, you’re so full of crap. Trump has never told me what an acceptable Jewish view is of anything. But you’re such a loser that you try to come up with some excuse for your anti-Jewish/anti-Israel opinions.

You accuse Trump of all the things crooked Joe Biden has been doing for 50 years while holding elective offices. You’ll call Trump, or any Republican, a liar while you accept that Biden claims the inflation rate was 9% when he took office.

You’re sick in the head.

Trump cultists only hear what they want to hear.

Really, Comrade Greggie? And what about the red headed woman who completely misrepresents what Trump has actually said?
It is ironic that Jews have traditionally voted for Democrats. Are you going to tell me that Democrats are not the party of anti racism/anti religious bigotry? Yeah, that’s why FDR ignored the attempt by Jews to land in the U.S.(and denied them entry) during WWII while Hitler, and his Islamic advisor, were making the plans to kill every Jew in Europe. That’s why the Dems removed any reference to God in their platform. That’s why Obama sent Jeremy Story to Israel to try to destroy Netanyahu’s chance of becoming the leader of Israel.

You choose to ignore how Obama tried to usurp Israel and how Joe Biden is simply continuing Obama’s hatred for the Jews and the Jewish homeland. You squeeze your eyes shut, put your hands over your ears and shout “I can’t hear you.” Just like the Germans did in 1938.

I used to find you interesting, wrong on every opinion you had, but interesting. Now I just find you a pathetic, hate filled perpetual liar that apparently has no real life.

Trump suggests he’s open to cuts to Medicare and Social Security after attacking primary rivals over the issue

…Trump was asked in an interview with CNBC whether he had changed his outlook on how to handle entitlement programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid in order to tackle the national debt.

“There is a lot you can do in terms of entitlements, in terms of cutting and in terms of also the theft and the bad management of entitlements,” Trump said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”

He added: “There’s tremendous amounts of things and numbers of things you can do.”

Following the interview, President Joe Biden responded to a clip his campaign made of Trump’s comments: “Not on my watch.”

Trump campaign spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt later told CNN that Trump was “clearly talking about cutting

waste, not entitlements…”

Social Security and Medicare are the nation’s two biggest entitlement programs, you frickin’ idiot.

You’re the one who has been bitching how SS, Medicare and Medicaid has to be cut. How the nation is going broke.
Where is your outrage over Traitor Biden giving Medicaid to illegal immigrants?
Yes, fraud needs to be dealt with. But you can bet Biden has no problem with fraud, of any kind.

When you have to go back two months to dig up some article by the Commie News Network, you’re showing how desperate you’re becoming.

Social Security is not an entitlement. The only reason it is in trouble is because Democrats steal from it and give payments to people who never paid into it.

“Entitlement Programs of the federal government include Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, Unemployment Insurance, and welfare programs. Entitlement programs are rights granted to citizens and certain non-citizens by federal law. The programs are either contributory or non-contributory.”

If you paid for it, it’s not an entitlement. Democrats have drained Social Security.

You’d better figure out what entitlement programs really are before voting for a billionaire autocrat who makes veiled references to cutting them.

Here’s an idea: Type “list of federal entitlement programs” into any internet search engine and press the “enter” key.

Trump has NEVER indicated he will cut Social Security and neither have Democrats. That’s all leftist propaganda.

Social Security and Medicare are the two biggest entitlement programs.

Never says he will cut benefits. Always says they won’t be cut. Only Democrats talk about cutting Social Security.

Yes, he actually does. The difference is, he means it and he does it. Unlike that goddamn, filthy, lying, corrupt, treasonous, incompetent piece of shit pedophile, Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden.

…and you believe whatever he says.

Well, he, unlike Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden, has a history of telling the truth, does what he says he will do and making claims that eventually come true. Note that Trump doesn’t claim any relatives were eaten by cannibals.

Why would Biden mourn the man who’s been providing Putin with drones for use against Ukraine?

And who do you think provided Iran the money to pay for those drones?

Good gracious, Comrade Greggie, do you ever put your brain into gear before you put your fingers into motion?

Nope, he just posts what he is told to post.

the sanctions put on were taken off they are making big bucks on oil.

90% of exported Iranian oil is sold to China. China doesn’t care about sanctions.

True, because Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden kisses their ass and other appendages. Funny how Trump was choking off all Iran’s income and maintained Middle East peace. Then Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden f**ked it all up, just like Afghanistan and Ukraine.

Sure, it is. Suuuuuuurrreeee it is. Because, you know, we can really trust Qatat.

Iran’s $6 Billion is still locked down in Qatar.

If you believe that, you’re dumber than I thought.

What about the other tens of billions that Demented Joe has already given them? Why are the Iranian people still being slaughtered by the ruthless regime? Because Obama, and Joe Biden, kiss their Islamic death cults asses.

Well, mostly because Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden is a lying, hateful, anti-American piece of shit that always does what is the worst for this country.

I said he would grovel and kiss their ass and, sure enough, there he goes. Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden loves him some terrorists.

Well, that’s because those greedy households were gouging everyone!!

Trump turned 75 consecutive months of economic growth into a crash and ran up $8.4 Trillion in new debt in the process.

Trump’s final year saw the GDP growth rate turn negative. (minus 2.77%, the worst contraction of the US economy since the end of WW2)

The U.S. GDP growth rate for 2021, Biden’s first year in office, was 5.95%, an 8.71% increase over Trump’s final year.

In the Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden regime, lying is always the official position.

Are you really just completely stupid or are you just pretending to be? When the economy is shut down, what do you suppose happens? Had the rest of the country opened back up in the spring like Florida and Texas did, the downturn would have been barely a blip. Trump had a month of 33% growth when the economy was reopened. All Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden was benefit from the strong economy Trump built… then he tore it down.

Again… you must be completely stupid or willing to be seen as such to ignore such facts.

Your numbers ignore the covid shutdown and then the reopening of the economy.
Biden is adding 80K of new debt per second. You say nothing.

Everyone feels the economic boom every time they fill up the tank or go grocery shopping, between working 2 or 3 part time jobs that dont carry insurance. Just to dumb to see the great economy knowing they will never be able to save enough to buy a house, the personal deduction raised under trump will be eliminated so they can pay more in just see all their tax dollars go to other countries wars.
