A Rigged System From Top to Bottom

Just the other day, New York Attorney General Letitia James issued a remarkable statement. “Before this trial even began, the judge ruled in our favor and found that Donald Trump did engage in years of significant financial fraud,” James boasted publicly. This is associated with just one of Donald Trump’s absurd legal cases.

Let what this laughable, biased prosecutor said sink in for a moment. She admitted that the honorable judge had “ruled in our favor” before the case had gone to trial. Even for this collapsing Banana Republic, it’s a shocking precedent to openly brag about such a serious breach of basic legal protocol. James, whom Trump has called “racist,” recently stated, “The Donald Trump show is over.” James has referred to Trump as an “illegitimate president,” and said “his days are numbered.” She lashed out at Trump at many rallies, even declaring, “We’ll bring him down!” Upon being elected in December 2018, James vowed, “We will use every area of the law to investigate President Trump and his business transactions and that of his family as well.” In this case, Trump is accused of exaggerating the value of his assets.

Now, I’ve known a lot of people in my lifetime that exaggerated the value of whatever they had. Bullshitters, I believe they’re called. Or to be more polite, blowhards. Until now, being a bullshit artist wasn’t a criminal offense. The good judge in this case, Arthur Engoron, is about as biased as can be, a perfect example of the new judges who rule over the Orwellian courtrooms of America 2.0. Engoron slapped a gag order on the former president after he insulted his law clerk in a post on Truth Social. Some insults are more equal than others. Trump also received a gag order in his equally ridiculous trial for “conspiring to overthrow” the 2020 election, by complaining about the many obvious irregularities that smacked of fraud.

It’s hard to keep track of the players without a scorecard, but Jack Smith, the prosecutor in the case where Trump is being tried for alleging electoral fraud, something which Stacy Abrams continues to do in the same state, is in a category by himself. Smith has regularly taunted Trump on social media, at Trump’s own grade school level. It makes you proud to be an American to witness it. Judge Tanya Chutkan is almost identical to Engoron in her transparent bias against Trump. Trump has no chance in either case. Although a bit less classless than the TikTok judges Alex Jones has been tried by, they are similar in their disregard for traditional appearances of impartiality and the presumption of innocence, and their distaste for free speech.

Just as the lethargic American public permitted tyranny to be constructed all around them, without protesting or even noticing, they have allowed the implementation of a politicized justice system. The prosecutions of Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Mike Flynn, Sydney Powell and other Trump associates were all politically motivated. Peter Navarro was convicted for contempt of Congress, because he ignored a subpoena. You know, the same thing presidential offspring Hunter Biden just did this week. Former Attorney General Eric Holder did this as well. Some subpoenas are more equal than others. I’m just a community college dropout, but I do know that either congressional subpoenas are legally required to be responded to, or they aren’t any big deal.

The January 6 defendants, those who aren’t still languishing in prison nearly two years later, denied all due process, have been given draconian sentences. Some will spend more years in prison than many murderers do. There hasn’t been a single concerned civil libertarian who has complained publicly about the political prisoners in Washington, D.C. Well, actually there really aren’t any civil libertarians left in America. Well, there is me. But who’s going to listen to me? The ACLU has dropped that whole civil liberties thing. It was so America 1.0. Maybe they can change their name to the American Criminal Leftists Union or something.

Doug Mackey recently was sent to prison for a short stay, for making fun of Hillary Clinton in a 2016 political meme. He could have received seven years. So, the judge was “lenient.” I don’t know, I think it’s pretty tyrannical to prosecute anyone for a political meme, let alone put them behind bars. Even for a single day. I’d ask what the statue of limitations was for a political meme, except that heretofore, political memes have not been considered potentially criminal in nature. Keeping with the “new norm” in jurisprudence, Owen Shroyer of Infowars served over a month in prison recently, most of it in solitary confinement. For being videotaped warning people to not go into the Capitol on January 6. He’s kind of the anti-Ray Epps, who of course was filmed urging people to go inside the Capitol, and remains free at large.

Now, I don’t know if any of this bothers you, but it certainly should. They are setting precedents to prosecute others, like you and me, for the same “crimes.” I’ve heard from enough ex-cons to know what prison is like, and I don’t want to go there. Even if it was a country club, and inmates actually had a blast there, I would still long to “climb the golden walls,” to quote the old poet. We already have way too many people imprisoned. More than any country has ever had. We should be letting those out who don’t belong there, as well as figuring out just how many were victims of this same horrific legal system, and are actually innocent.

Because of the Trumpenstein Project, which used the former reality TV star to hopelessly divide the country, and destroy any independent political movement, our “justice” system has dropped all pretenses. We’ve all seen the video of cops planting evidence, or threatening to do so to uncooperative motorists. In Pennsylvania a few years back, some judges were convicted of having knowingly sent a bunch of underage kids into the world of sex trafficking. For money. The elite do love their mammon. Ambitious prosecutors going back to the sham trial of Bruno Richard Hauptman, framed and executed for the Lindbergh baby kidnapping, were later found to have doctored evidence in order to get a conviction. A win. Everybody loves a winner. They have never cared about justice.

It bears repeating that this tyranny was constructed on the backs of all those apathetic Americans. Who didn’t care that others were being railroaded, or given outrageously long prison sentences, as long as it wasn’t happening to them, or to someone they love. Human beings generally don’t care about the injustices inflicted upon strangers. “Hey, I’m doing fine,” they’ll rationalize. It’s a shocking inability to stand inside another’s shoes. Empathy should be an essential part of human nature. But it’s never been as lacking as it is today. You have to have a population that totally lacks empathy, for instance, in states like California. To mindlessly walk by the pathetic people living in tents, stepping around the human excrement on the sidewalks.

As the Libertarians used to note, every time a new law is passed, we create new “criminals.” There are already far too many laws, and yet the public clamors for more. Millions want those they disagree with politically to be “locked up,” you know, like career Deep State villain Hillary Clinton. Who is, of course, definitely not locked up. The swamp has never been fuller. It’s ironic that, with all the politicized prosecutions going on, the criminal elite continue to evade the long arm of the law they control. I wrote about all the modern Deep State criminals in Hidden History. None were ever prosecuted. Even if they were prosecuted, they would be acquitted by the same brain- dead juries that convict hapless riff raff on zero credible evidence.
