DNC Corruption

Thomas Paine: American Philosopher, & Revolutionary

From 1776 through the formation of The Constitution I helped create America. Now I have returned to help save America. Please join my Facebook group American Patriots in a free and open discussion to further the cause of FREEDOM.  

I could write about DNC corruption and the MSM every day.  They certainly provide plenty of material.  But this one isn’t about the latest news flash.  It’s straight from the heart.

Yesterday, I received my copy of Peter Schweizer’s new release Red Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win, and dove into it immediately.  The first chapter is basically a “set the stage” intro.  Chapter 2 is an exposé on the Biden family and their ties to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).  Schweizer and his team of investigators have traced $31 million in payments to the Biden family from Chinese businessmen with close ties to highly ranked members of China’s intelligence service, through various “shady business” deals with Hunter Biden and his portfolio of entities.  Textbook influence peddling.  Does Joe Biden have “plausible deniability”?  Not if anyone cares to look.

Where is Hunter anyway?  Certainly not in federal prison where he belongs.  Does anyone really believe the “chip-on-his-shoulder” Attorney General, Merrick Garland, is going to prosecute Hunter Biden? Garland was denied Senate hearings on his appointment to the Supreme Court in Obama’s last year. That is why I have been advocating for the Attorney General to be appointed by the party NOT in the White House, even when occupied by a Republican. The AGs under Obama and Biden were, and are, essentially Kings Guards. Did Trumps AGs protect him. or do his bidding? Apparently not. Seems like one-sided corruption to me.

It’s notable that Schweizer’s last book was titled, Profiles in Corruption, which also had a chapter on the Biden family, among other prominent Democrats.  He dedicated an entire book to the Clinton cabal.  I can’t wait until he gets to Obama for the “grand slam” of the last four Democrat presidential candidates, Al Gore excluded.

The message here is that these high-profile Democrats are filthy to the core, and all American voters should be aware of the extent to which they have perfected the art of corruption.  That’s disgusting enough, but when you know the media protects them and you realize that none of them have ever been investigated, let alone prosecuted, you are reminded of the classic Vince Lombardi quote, “What the Hell’s goin’ on out here?”

I have no affiliation with Schweizer and don’t currently enjoy any financial gain from the sale of his books.  I’m just recommending that every American read his work.

Also yesterday, before getting the book in the mail, I watched a documentary on George Washington titled “The First American”, an IMDb production by Newt Gingrich.  It was an excellent profile on the greatest American of all time, and was special to me, having had the privilege of knowing him personally.  The movie puts the viewer in the spirit of ’76, a state of mind that is sorely needed today.  It’s currently streaming on Amazon Prime and I highly recommend it.

This is a call to action.  If you want to call yourself an American, you should be outraged at the direction the DNC has taken this country.  It is not enough to silently accept their “political correctness”, ignore their corruption, and keep your mouth shut as the “woke mob” takes control of every aspect of your life.  True patriots don’t sit down and shut up.  We must stand up and be heard.  Not long ago, I was willing to consider loyal Democrat voters as a segment of the populace that could not be swayed to switch teams.  I have been trying to inform the independents and young voters who may be new to the political consciousness.  Now I’m convinced that anyone who opens their eyes and earnestly examines the truth, can be converted.  But it will take a tremendous effort to destroy the DNC and their media propaganda machine.  It will take true American patriots talking to their friends and family members, respectfully, but convincingly, that the DNC is rotten and should be defeated at every opportunity.  While they continue to divide the country by race and identity politics, we welcome anyone into our tent.  You have all heard the phrase “wake up America”.  It is our mission to enlighten the people with facts, to point out the deceptive agenda of the “fake news” media, and to become voices of reason.  I will admit that I have had thoughts of leaving the country and just going somewhere without all this turmoil.  But that is not feasible and it is a quitter’s attitude.  We can win hearts and minds.  We must not give up.   

“Tyranny, like Hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.”

Democrats Acknowledge Border Crisis

Thomas Paine: American Philosopher, & Revolutionary

From 1776 through the formation of The Constitution I helped create America. Now I have returned to help save America. Please join my Facebook group American Patriots in a free and open discussion to further the cause of FREEDOM.  

All of a sudden the Biden administration and the Democrats in lock-step, are deeply concerned over developments at the border.  They have actually admitted we have a border crisis. The White House has repeatedly said there will be “serious consequences” [1] for anyone who threatens a sovereign nation. Oh wait, you mean the Ukraine?  I thought you were talking about our own border. What about America’s sovereignty?

The Democrats don’t give a rat’s ass about America, or our citizens. They completely ignore the human invasion taking place on our own southern border.  In December, CBP conducted over 178,000 encounters with illegal immigrants along our southern border, more than the previous 3 Decembers combined, and we have absorbed over 2 million immigrants in the past year. July and August each saw over 200,000 immigrant encounters, with the August total representing a 320% increase over August 2020.  [2]

What’s their plan? Advertise the open border that the American taxpayer is funding their lives so we can give them everything for free and turn them into loyal Democrat voters, while turning a few red (or purple) states blue in the process (Arizona, Nevada, Texas).  Overwhelm the welfare system and create a massive class of dependents they can control. Not to mention all the negative consequences of accepting all these “migrants”, like criminality, human trafficking, drug running, and the economic impact of so many unskilled laborers driving down wages, flooding our schools, and health care systems, and straining our infrastructure that is already obsolete. Oh, but don’t worry!  Biden will fix all that with his “Build Back Better” plan.

Drug Overdose Deaths in the U. S. Top 100,000 Annually  [3] That’s the headline of a CDC press release, which states that opioid overdose deaths rose to 75,673 by the year ended April 2021, up nearly 35% from the same period a year earlier.  These deaths are primarily from synthetic opioids, like fentanyl and methamphetamine, courtesy of the Mexican border.  

Biden talks about sending 8,500 troops to the Ukraine to defend their sovereignty against over 100,000 Russian troops massed on their border.  We have already sent armaments in the form of anti-tank missiles and “bunker busters” to Kyiv. 

Bunker busters?  Do they expect the Russians to build concrete bunkers on the border?  Or are they to be on hand for when we invade Moscow – in winter?

Is Joe Biden sure 8,500 American soldiers can repel 100,000 invading Russians?  Does he plan to send more?  A lot more?  It doesn’t matter to him.  He doesn’t care about the 100,000 Americans dying every year from opioids.  Why should he care about American soldiers fighting a purposeless war?

These Democrats are dumber than a bag of hammers, which could be better used to beat some sense into them.   

Maybe somebody in Congress should stand up and tell these idiots how stupid this notion is.  We don’t need to sacrifice precious American blood for the protection of a country of zero strategic importance, particularly against a super-power that can match our nuclear strength.  The left was insanely warning us of Trump having his hands on the nuclear codes.  Remember that time he threatened to use them?  Me either.  Now a deranged Biden, acting on the whims of his puppet-master, is actually talking about going to war – against Russia.  And the warmongers of the Military Industrial Complex are drooling at the prospect. 

Who exactly, stands to benefit from such a ridiculous engagement? Is Biden trying to boost the profits of corporate military hardware manufacturers? Is he trying to appease his Chinese controllers? Or is he mindlessly following the orders of an “advisor”, one who wants to destroy America and its military?  And who could that be?   

These are serious questions.

Nostradamus predicted a nuclear conflict that will destroy mankind – in June 2038.  I’m not sure we will make it that long.

GOP Electors Targeted by Jan 6 Committee

Thomas Paine: American Philosopher, & Revolutionary

From 1776 through the formation of The Constitution I helped create America. Now I have returned to help save America. Please join my Facebook group American Patriots in a free and open discussion to further the cause of FREEDOM.  

GOP Electors in seven battleground states have been targeted by the Jan 6 Committee for submitting false slates of electors in dispute of the certified slates presented to Congress.

The U. S. House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol began hearing testimony on July 27th 2021 and by the end of the year, had interviewed over 300 witnesses.  They now have a much broader criminal conspiracy in their sights.  They are alleging that the Trump team orchestrated a massive scheme to coerce all seven battleground states to submit alternate certificates, file lawsuits, and have Vice President Mike Pence not accept the Biden slates on January 6th, then follow that with a planned insurrection if all else failed.

Of course if all of that were true, there should be consequences and legislation should be introduced to amend the statutes in an effort to eliminate that possibility from happening again.  But are those allegations true, or was the Trump team simply following a completely legal precedent set by presidential candidate John F. Kennedy in 1960?

On December 14th 2020, as 20 “prominent Democrats” gathered in Harrisburg Pennsylvania with then Secretary of State, Kathy Boockvar, to certify that Joe Biden had defeated Trump by about 80,000 votes, 20 Republicans were meeting at another location to sign alternate certificates for submittal to the National Archives and Congress, as required by law.  The Republicans called their conditional maneuver a “procedural vote”, claiming they were cast just in case a court ruling overturned Biden’s victory.  GOP State Chairman Bernie Comfort stated, “We took this procedural vote to preserve any legal claims that may be presented going forward.  This was in no way an effort to usurp or contest the will of the Pennsylvania voters.” [1]

Is that maneuver legal, or does it represent fraud, or forgery, as the January 6th Committee alleges?

From the verbatim excerpt of a Politico article [2], it’s obvious that the Trump legal team felt confident in the legality of submitting what some states said were conditional slates of electors, to wit:

“Republicans at the time emphasized that their decision to hold unsanctioned elector votes had a precedent. In 1960, three Democratic electors from Hawaii met to cast votes for John F. Kennedy, even though the election results showed that Richard Nixon had narrowly prevailed in the state. With a recount underway, those pro-Kennedy electors met to cast their votes anyway and submitted those results to Congress and the National Archives, the clearinghouse for elector certificates.

Hawaii’s recount ultimately reversed the outcome, showing Kennedy had won by fewer than 200 votes, and the state’s governor then certified the Democratic slate as well. On Jan. 6, 1961, the Democratic electors were the ones counted by Congress, with Nixon, then vice president, presiding.”

In the Hawaii case, a recount had narrowly overturned the results in Kennedy’s favor in time for the Governor to certify the Democrat slate, but those differences are not relevant because there were limited recounts in 2020 and Trump had pending lawsuits.  The legal basis established in the Kennedy case, was similar in that the opposing party submitted alternate slates of electors pending some future decision.

Of the seven contested battleground states (AZ, GA, MI, NV, NC, PA, and WI), only Georgia performed a statewide recount, and Wisconsin recounted votes in two counties.  None of the recount efforts produced any significant results that would have overturned the electoral votes.  Trump filed six lawsuits in Pennsylvania, challenging the vote counting process, primarily due to election laws being unconstitutionally modified without going through the state legislature.  All those suits were dismissed, and all of which takes time.

From the same Politico article, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), member of the January 6th Committee, said, “We want to look at the fraudulent activity that was contained in the preparation of these fake Electoral College certificates.”  Apparently, he is either ignorant of the 1960 precedent, or he was misrepresenting the facts, and expects the public to take his word for it.

Referring back to the Philadelphia Inquirer article [3], the Pennsylvania officials having hedged their maneuver by attaching the caveat that those certificates should only be counted in the event of Trump’s legal victory, seems to have dodged the forgery charge.  It would be reasonable to afford the same leniency to the other five states (AZ, GA, MI, NV, and WI) that submitted the alternate certificates, in consideration of the Kennedy precedent. 

Food for thought:  If the entire legal challenge had been coordinated from the White House, don’t you think that each state would have submitted their alternate slates under the exact same advice?  Why was Pennsylvania the only state submitting with the aforementioned caveat?  Without any evidence that those states colluded to collectively overturn the election, the entire Democrat conspiracy theory is deflated.

Republican vs. Democrat Platform

Thomas Paine: American Philosopher, & Revolutionary

From 1776 through the formation of The Constitution I helped create America. Now I have returned to help save America. Please join my Facebook group American Patriots in a free and open discussion to further the cause of FREEDOM.  

Yesterday, President Joe Biden conducted a solo press conference to close out his first year in office.

Despite all the delusion on display that he “has done as much in one year” as any President, and his frequent loss of thought train, the one thing he said that stuck out to me more than any other was his rhetorical question, “What are Republicans for?” “Name me one thing they’re for.”

I’m no Republican, but I’ll take that challenge.  Sorry, I can’t name just one

Republicans, in contrast to Democrats, are for:

• The Constitution

• The Bill of Rights

• Individualism and personal responsibility

• A free-market capitalist economy

• Secure borders that control legal immigration

• Law and order

• Lower taxes

• Energy independence

• Voter ID and election integrity

• Unification of all Americans

. . . and a few things Republicans are not for:

• Marxist socialism

• Centralized government in control of every aspect of life

• Collectivism, whereby the people are deemed too stupid to take care of themselves

• The “political paradise of communism”, per Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals

• Open borders advertising free stuff, courtesy of the American taxpayer

• Rampant crime sprees in major cities with “get out of jail free” cards

• Higher taxes

• Dependence on foreign energy due to restrictions on American producers

• Manufactured phony ballots that steal elections and disenfranchise actual citizens

• Division of Americans by race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, and/or religion

That first list is essentially the Republican platform.  The second list is the Democrat platform.  Which one do you like?

The Expansion of Voting Rights

Thomas Paine: American Philosopher, & Revolutionary

From 1776 through the formation of The Constitution I helped create America. Now I have returned to help save America. Please join my Facebook group American Patriots in a free and open discussion to further the cause of FREEDOM.  

Now the Democrats are desperately pushing passage of their proposed Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, hoping to ram those through Congress before this year’s mid-term election, just in case they lose control of the majority.  To facilitate that suddenly urgent agenda item, they claim it’s a great idea to eliminate the Senate filibuster in order to pass these voting reforms.

It’s a classic standoff between the Democrats who claim to be fighting for everyone to have easy access to voting rights, including non-citizens, with no proof of identity; and Republicans who hope to ensure that all votes are legitimate, cast by actual living citizens, and calling for Voter ID laws. Maybe we should send out mail-in ballots to China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran. Why should they be excluded? Maybe we could include vouchers for taxpayer money if they vote Democrat. That sounds like something they might already have buried in their “pass it to see what’s in it” legislation. The unbelievable part is; they have no shame in promoting ideas like that. They actually think they are reasonable, or you are too stupid to question their motives.

President Biden was in Atlanta this past Tuesday lobbying for passage of both voting rights bills and a “carve out” of the filibuster.

Cedric Richmond, White House Senior Advisor, said Biden’s speech on January 6th was a “down payment” in building the case to the public that the foundations of the country’s democracy are under assault, in reference to the voting rights bills and elimination of the filibuster. 

The foundations are under assault alright, by Democrats lobbying for changes to Senate rules.  Although the founders did not establish the filibuster, it wasn’t long before it was adopted by the Senate.

Aaron Burr is often credited as the father of the American filibuster, when as Vice President in 1805, he suggested to the Senate that they should eliminate a rule that automatically cut off floor debate, then called the “previous question motion”.  The following year, the Senate dropped the motion from their rule book.  That opened the door for the filibuster as we know it.

The filibuster assures the American people that legislation adopted by Congress is well thought out and has garnered significant support.  It is designed to stop hair-brained ideas from being passed with a simple majority.  Any Senator can request the floor to speak without time limit, in an effort to convince other Senators that the proposed legislation should be further scrutinized. The Democrats portray that as stall tactics, and it is sometimes abused by speeches that have nothing to do with the issue at hand.  On this particular piece of legislation, Democrats are so desperate to enact their method of retaining power, they label Republicans as “obstructionists.” To prevent, or end a filibuster, a minimum of 60 Senators must agree, known as cloture, whereby the legislation can proceed to a vote. They know they can’t get 60 votes, so they claim the filibuster is blocking “progress” and push to “carve out” an exception to suit them.

To change the Senate rule Democrats need only a simple majority, a 50-50 tie that can be broken by the Vice President, a procedural maneuver known as the “nuclear option”.  Currently, Sen. Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Sinema (D-AZ) oppose the carve out or elimination of the filibuster, but will they hold firm?     

The House may operate under the “we have to pass it to see what’s in it” Pelosi doctrine, but the Senate was created specifically, to be the more deliberative body.

The Freedom to Vote Act expands access to the ballot and shields election officials. Apparently that means more mail-in voting which opens the door to more fraud and an easier way to cheat.  That other provision to “shield election officials” looks pretty shady to me; “shield them from what”?  They just pulled off the most massive voter fraud in history with complete impunity.  I know, we have all been “informed” by the media propaganda machine that Trump’s claims of voter fraud were all debunked. Are you positive the 2020 election was fair and totally legitimate? When you gather over 1,000 independent witnesses who sign sworn Affidavits under penalty of perjury, that they saw various “irregularities” in several states that were “coincidently” battleground states, and have video evidence of election officials scanning highly questionable stacks of ballots, after kicking observers out of the room and boarding up the windows, it seems to me that something secretive was going on. So secretive, that Democrats want to “shield election officials” from legal jeopardy by legislation. Maybe they should rebrand the name and call it what it is, the Freedom to Cheat Act.

Joseph Geevarghese, Executive Director of Our Revolution, a pro Bernie Sanders group, said, “If we don’t pass the Freedom to Vote legislation, Democrats are going to get slaughtered in 2022 and 2024.  If people can’t get to the polls and exercise their right to vote, our power is in jeopardy and that’s what this is about.”

(Paine):  I’ll be bound.  Some honesty from a Democrat; their power is in jeopardy.  On the other hand, he claims Democrat voters can’t get to the polls, inferring they need mail-in ballots.  I’d advise him that polling places are everywhere, probably within walking distance from nearly every urban Democrat where their power base is located.  It’s not that hard folks.  Or is he painting Democrat voters as too stupid to figure out how to vote in person? Every American is expected to do whatever it takes to get vaccinated. Why can’t Democrat voters get to polling places if they are expected to find a place to get vaccinated?

In an article, dated October 20th, 2021, NPR, National Public Radio states, “Democrats say federal voting legislation is needed to counteract a wave of new restrictions from Republican-controlled state legislatures across the country. Critics of those laws say they are making it more difficult to vote, particularly for people of color.  The Freedom to Vote Act would have, among other things, established Election Day as a national holiday, set national minimum standards for early voting and voting by mail, and created new requirements for groups not currently required to disclose their financial donors. It also included standards for states that require voter identification, “[1]

(Paine):  “national minimum standards for early voting and voting by mail”? That sounds like a good way to manufacture thousands of ballots as needed in critical precincts in order to win any election.  And why is it so difficult to vote if you’re not white?  What does skin color have to do with it in the 21st century? In 1888 it was skin color that made it difficult to vote because southern Democrats suppressed the Black vote, then supporting the “party of Lincoln”, and gave incumbent President Grover Cleveland a 90,000 popular vote margin. But karma prevailed, and in the first instance whereby the presidency was decided by the Electoral College, Benjamin Harrison secured victory by the electoral vote of 233 to 168, on the strength of him winning the north and the west. Yet today, the “progressive” left insists the Electoral College is flawed and must be eliminated. How conveniently they disregard history.

Now the media calls these “new restrictions” voter suppression, and has people believing that evil Republicans are trying to deny the right to vote to “people of color”, failing to mention is was actually Democrats who suppressed the Black vote earlier. When a movement suggests their opposition is doing something they did themselves and infers it’s only nefarious this time, that’s propaganda. They are either too stupid to know the history, or they are being deceptive, or both. That’s simple logic.

Biden is on record vowing to “fight like heck” against voting restrictions being passed by Republican state legislatures.  [2]

(Paine):  I guess when Biden says “fight like heck” he’s a knight in shining armor; when Trump says the exact same phrase, he’s inciting a riot. (see my post, Trump’s Incitement to Riot)

And what exactly are these “voting restrictions” enacted by state legislatures?  Does that mean Republicans are requiring voters to prove who they are by showing a voter registration card?  Does it mean voters are supposed to be U. S. citizens?  Oh my, the horror.

The United States Constitution, ratified 1789, did not originally define who was eligible to vote, allowing each state to determine who was eligible.  Throughout the 19th century, voting rights began to expand to non-whites and citizens who did not own property.  Four of the fifteen post- Civil War constitutional amendments were ratified to extend voting rights to different groups of citizens.  These extensions state that voting rights cannot be denied or abridged based on the following:

  • Race, color, or previous condition of servitude (15th Amendment)
  • On account of sex (19th Amendment)
  • By reason of failure to pay any poll tax or other tax (24th Amendment)
  • Who are 18 years of age or older (26th Amendment)

Many states require eligible citizens to register to vote a set number of days prior to the election in order to vote.

Notice all these qualifications refer to citizens.  In what country are non-citizens given voting rights? I have yet to see any statutory justification for allowing non-citizens the right to vote in any election.

On the 15th of March 1965, Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th U. S. President, gave a speech before Congress in support of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which he had signed into law the previous July. In the speech he said, “Every American citizen must have an equal right to vote.” Notice he did not say “Every American must have the right to vote.” A Democrat President qualified the statement by restricting that right to citizens.

I agree, all citizens should be able to exercise their right to vote, after proving they are an American citizen. One verified citizen, one vote. I don’t mind mail-in ballots per se, as long as they are verified. But who is going to be in charge of the verification? Who is going to count the votes and who is going to oversee the counting? Maybe every citizen should be assigned a unique Voter ID Number, similar to a credit card number. The database could be sorted and scanned for duplicate entries very easily, managed by the Federal Election Commission. When voters relocate from one state to another, their new address would be revised in the database. The Voter ID Number could be attached to each Social Security Number. When a voter is deceased, that Voter ID Number would be eliminated upon notification from the Social Security Death Index. It’s not rocket science, just simple cooperation between the SSA and the FEC.

You don’t have to be a Republican to disagree with everything they stand for.  You just have to be sensible.

Trump’s Incitement to Riot

Thomas Paine: American Philosopher, & Revolutionary

From 1776 through the formation of The Constitution I helped create America. Now I have returned to help save America. Please join my Facebook group American Patriots in a free and open discussion to further the cause of FREEDOM.  

Could Trump’s January 6th rally be considered “Incitement to Riot”? Federal judge, Amit Mehta, appointed by Barack Obama on Dec 22nd 2014 to the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, seems to think so. He has reprimanded Jesse Binnall, lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump, to “stick with the facts”, [1] in a hearing on Monday, January 10th, 2022, concerning Trump’s alleged incitement to riot at a rally held on January 6th, 2021, that preceded the so-called “insurrection” on the U.S. Capitol.

Binnell has claimed, correctly, that Trump told the crowd,

“I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” [2]

Judge Mehta claims that qualifying statement should be ignored because later in the speech Trump said, “And we fight. We fight like hell. And if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.”

What Business Insider and the MSM in general don’t want you to know, is the context of that statement.  Just a few sentences prior to the abovementioned quote Trump said, “We are the greatest country on Earth and we are headed and we’re headed in the right direction.

You know, the wall is built. We’re doing record numbers at the wall. Now, they want to take down the wall. Let’s let everyone flow in. Let’s let everybody flow in. We did a great job in the wall. Remember, the wall, they said it could never be done. One of the largest infrastructure projects we’ve ever had in this country, and it’s had a tremendous impact, that we got rid of catch and release. We got rid of all of this stuff that we had to live with.  But now, the caravans, I think Biden’s getting in, the caravans are forming again. They want to come in again and rip off our country. Can’t let it happen.  As this enormous crowd shows, we have truth and justice on our side. We have a deep and enduring love for America in our hearts. We love our country.  We have overwhelming pride in this great country and we have it deep in our souls. Together, we are determined to defend and preserve government of the people, by the people and for the people.”

Frankly, the media doesn’t show any respect whatsoever to their followers.  They just assume people are too lazy and too stupid to investigate anything on their own.  They are counting on the masses to believe anything they say, and don’t care about anyone who questions their “authority”, ridiculing all opposition as conspiracy theorists.  The media controls the social consciousness and if they want to put a certain spin on a story through omission, or deception, that’s what most folks will believe.

Elsewhere in the speech Trump said, “There’s so many weak Republicans. And we have great ones. Jim Jordan and some of these guys, they’re out there fighting. The House guys are fighting.”

Trump is using the word “fighting” in a different context than actual fisticuffs and acts of violence, you know, just like Democrats “fight” for their favorite causes.  Evidently, when it comes to Trump, Mehta thinks “fighting” can only be physical and violent. He’s painted himself as a moron.  

Mehta also forced Trump lawyers to explain his “hours of silence” during the January 6th attack, asking in court whether the President’s “inaction could be considered a tacit endorsement of the day’s violence”.

To which Binnett replied, “”The president cannot be subject to judicial action for any sort of damages for failing to do something,”  Trump didn’t even “fail to do something” at all, he did go on Twitter just two hours after the initial breach of the Capitol and called for his supporters to disband and go home.  But apparently there is a two hour time limit for such action to be recognized.

The headline of an NBC News article, dated Jan 14, 2021, [3] admitted that, “Trump’s speech is probably defensible in every court – except, perhaps, the Senate”.  In other words, even the far-left media admits there was no incitement to riot as defined by the actual federal statute.  They further admit that a speaker is not automatically liable for the actions of anyone who was at an intended peaceful demonstration, the speaker must have the intent to engage in the criminal conduct.

View the full text of the actual statute; 18 U.S. Code § 2101 – Riots at:


Of course, despite the Democrat controlled House impeachment of Trump , the Senate acquitted him of “incitement of insurrection” on Feb 13th 2021. 

Yet here we are, almost a year later, entertaining oral arguments in civil lawsuits brought by House Democrats and Capitol Police, determined to destroy a political comeback by any means necessary.  Maybe Judge Mehta should be advised of the facts.  Instead, we are awaiting the absurd findings of a kangaroo court.
