BIDEN'S DILEMMA: FILEGATE

HILLARY-HYPOCRISY
There is no chance that our corrupt and compromised Attorney General, Merrick Garland, will instruct the Department of Justice to hold President Biden accountable for his actions.

Dilemma. Noun. di·​lem·​ma də-ˈlem-ə also dī-: a situation in which one has to choose between two or more things, ways, or plans that are equally unsatisfactory: a difficult choice.

Unless President Biden totally ignores Special Counsel Robert K. Hur’s report, “Report of the Special Counsel on the Investigation Into Unauthorized Removal, Retention, and Disclosure of Classified Documents Discovered at Locations Including the Penn Biden Center and the Delaware Private Residence of President Joseph R. Biden, Jr.,” he must agree that he has dementia, and thus is unfit for office or a nomination for office, or he knew what he was doing and is guilty as charged.

Likewise, it is unlikely that Biden will be charged with using the powers of his office to facilitate a criminal enterprise, which includes being an unregistered foreign agent of another sovereign power, coercion, money laundering, tax evasion, and possibly treason if he provided classified information to a hostile foreign power even though a recorded confession of a quid pro quo arrangement protecting his son’s employer has been widely aired by media outlets.

Who really is the guilty party?

Obama-arrogant

Most of the damage was committed during the Obama Administration. It should be attributable to Barack Obama, the Communist-in-Chief who has presided over much of the progressive communist democrat destruction from within.

The Trump tragedy...

These same corrupt progressive communist democrats are prosecuting persecuting former President Trump for a classified documents case where Trump, unlike Biden, possessed declassification powers and was subject to different federal rules and regulations than Biden.

And, unlike Biden, Trump should have additional powers that render him immune from prosecution. Given the number of ginned-up prosecutions designed to keep him out of the 2024 election cycle in favor of a literal vegetable, this is a clear and present illustration of progressive communist democrat tyranny. 

Bottom line…

We are so screwed.

SPECIAL COUNSEL ROBERT HUR DELIVED A NEW TANK OF HILLARY-COLORED WHITEWASH TO JOE BIDEN

Doj-fbi-corrupt

When will these progressive communist democrats be held responsible for selling out their office to the highest bidder, in this case, to hostile foreign powers.?

The freshly delivered Hur Report, “Report on the Investigation Into Unauthorized Removal, Retention, and Disclosure of Classified Documents Discovered at Locations Including the Penn Biden Center and the Delaware Private Residence of President Joseph R. Biden, Jr.” has concluded…

Our investigation uncovered evidence that President Biden willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen. These materials included (1) marked classified documents about military and foreign policy in Afghanistan, and (2) notebooks containing Mr. Biden's handwritten entries about issues of national security and foreign policy implicating sensitive intelligence sources and methods. FBI agents recovered these materials from the garage, offices, and basement den in Mr. Biden's Wilmington, Delaware home.”

Additionally, the report noted the use of private emails, fake names for official business, and sharing White House Communications with his family members.

The classified documents and other materials recovered in this case spanned Mr. Biden's career in national public life. During that career, Mr. Biden has long seen himself as a historic figure. Elected to the Senate at age twenty-nine, he considered running for president as early as 1980 and did so in 1988, 2008, and 2020. He believed his record during decades in the Senate made him worthy of the presidency, and he collected papers and artifacts related to significant issues and events in his career. He used these materials to write memoirs published in 2007 and 2017, to document his legacy, and to cite as evidence that he was a man of presidential timber.”

“In 2009, then-Vice President Biden strongly opposed the military's plans to send more troops to Afghanistan. U.S. policy in Afghanistan was deeply important to Mr. Biden, and he labored to dissuade President Obama from escalating America's involvement there and repeating what Mr. Biden believed was a mistake akin to Vietnam. Despite Mr. Biden's advice, President Obama ordered a surge of additional U.S. troops, and Mr. Biden's views endured sharp criticism from others within and outside of the administration. But he always believed history would prove him right. He retained materials documenting his opposition to the troop surge, including a classified handwritten memo he sent President Obama over the 2009 Thanksgiving holiday, and related marked classified documents. FBI agents recovered these materials from Mr. Biden's Delaware garage and home office in December 2022 and January 2023.”

“Also, during his eight years as vice president, Mr. Biden regularly wrote notes by hand in notebooks. Some of these notes related to classified subjects, including the President's Daily Brief and National Security Council meetings, and some of the notes are themselves classified. After the vice presidency, Mr. Biden kept these classified notebooks in unsecured and unauthorized spaces at his Virginia and Delaware homes and used some of the notebooks as reference material for his second memoir, Promise Me, Dad, which was published in 2017. To our knowledge, no one has identified any classified information published in Promise Me, Dad, but Mr. Biden shared information, including some classified information, from those notebooks with his ghostwriter. FBI agents recovered the notebooks from the office and basement den in Mr. Biden's Delaware home in January 2023.”

It is likely that Biden’s ghostwriter did not have sufficient clearance to review classified materials and no mention is made regarding the possibility that the ghostwriter possessed, retained and used these documents outside of a classified documents facility. And it appears that he, too, gets a pass.

“After telling the Special Counsel's Office what he had done, the ghostwriter turned over his computer and external hard drive and consented to their search. Based on the FBI's analysis. it appears the FBI recovered all deleted audio files relating to the memoir, though portions of a few of the files appear to be missing, which is possible when forensic tools are used to recover deleted files. The ghostwriter kept, and did not delete or attempt to delete, his near-verbatim transcripts of the recordings and produced those transcripts to us, including for each of the incomplete recovered files. We considered whether to charge the ghostwriter with obstruction of justice, but we believe the evidence would be insufficient to obtain a conviction and therefore declined to prosecute him. While the ghostwriter admitted that he deleted the recordings after he learned of the special counsel's investigation, the evidence falls short of proving beyond a reasonable doubt that he intended to impede an investigation, which is the intent required by law. In his interviews, the ghostwriter offered plausible, innocent reasons for why he deleted the recordings.”

“Marked classified documents about Afghanistan. These documents from fall 2009 have classification markings up to the Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information level. They were found in a box in Mr. Biden's Delaware garage that contained other materials of great personal significance to him and that he appears to have personally used and accessed. The marked classified documents were found along with drafts of the handwritten 2009 Thanksgiving memo Mr. Biden sent President Obama in a last-ditch effort to persuade him not to send additional troops to Afghanistan. These materials were proof of the stand Mr. Biden took in what he regarded as among the most important decisions of his vice presidency.”

“Mr. Biden wrote his 2007 and 2017 memoirs with the help of a ghostwriter. In a recorded conversation with his ghostwriter in February 2017, about a month after he left office, Mr. Biden said, while referencing his 2009 Thanksgiving memo, that he had "just found all the classified stuff downstairs." At the time, he was renting a home in Virginia, where he met his ghostwriter to work on his second memoir. Downstairs from where they met was Mr. Biden's office, where he stored his papers. He moved out of the Virginia home in 2019, consolidating his belongings in Delaware-where FBI agents later found marked classified documents about the Afghanistan troop surge in his garage.”

“Evidence supports the inference that when Mr. Biden said in 2017 that he had "just found all the classified stuff downstairs" in Virginia, he was referring to the same marked classified documents about Afghanistan that FBI agents found in 2022 in his Delaware garage.”

“Nevertheless, we do not believe this evidence is sufficient, as jurors would likely find reasonable doubt for one or more of several reasons. Both when he served as vice president and when the Afghanistan documents were found in Mr. Biden's Delaware garage in 2022, his possession of them in his Delaware home was not a basis for prosecution because as vice president and president, he had authority to keep classified documents in his home. The best case for charges would rely on Mr. Biden's possession of the Afghanistan documents in his Virginia home in February 2017. when he was a private citizen and when he told his ghostwriter he had just found classified material.” 

However, for the reasons summarized below, we conclude that the evidence does not establish Mr. Biden's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Prosecution of Mr. Biden is also unwarranted based on our consideration of the aggravating and mitigating factors set forth in the Department of Justice's Principles of Federal Prosecution. For these reasons, we decline prosecution of Mr. Biden.”

This statement should apply to former President Trump and all charges immediately dropped.

“Historically, after leaving office, many former presidents and vice presidents have knowingly taken home sensitive materials related to national security from their administrations without being charged with crimes. This historical record is important context for judging whether and why to charge a former vice president and former president, as Mr. Biden would be when susceptible to prosecution-for similar actions taken by several of his predecessors.”

Sticking it to Trump…

“With one exception, there is no record of the Department of Justice prosecuting a former president or vice president for mishandling classified documents from his own administration. The exception is former President Trump. It is not our role to assess the criminal charges pending against Mr. Trump, but several material distinctions between Mr. Trump's case and Mr. Biden's are clear. Unlike the evidence involving Mr. Biden, the allegations set forth in the indictment of Mr. Trump, if proven, would present serious aggravating facts.”

“Most notably, after being given multiple chances to return classified documents and avoid prosecution, Mr. Trump allegedly did the opposite. According to the indictment, he not only refused to return the documents for many months, but he also obstructed justice by enlisting others to destroy evidence and then to lie about it. In contrast, Mr. Biden turned in classified documents to the National Archives and the Department of Justice, consented to the search of multiple locations including his homes, sat for a voluntary interview. and in other ways cooperated with the investigation.”

About those classified documents at the Communist Chinese-funded Penn Center…

The FBI recovered additional marked classified documents at the Penn Biden Center, elsewhere in Mr. Biden's Delaware home, and in collections of his Senate papers at the University of Delaware, but the evidence suggests that Mr. Biden did not willfully retain these documents and that they could plausibly have been brought to these locations by mistake. We also investigated whether persons other than Mr. Biden knowingly mishandled these classified documents, and our investigation showed that they did not. In reaching these conclusions, we note the numerous previous instances in which marked classified documents have been discovered intermixed with the personal papers of former Executive Branch officials and members of Congress.”

The 25th Amendment...

Hur documents Biden’s dementia; memory loss dates back a decade -- considering how corrupt Biden's cabinet members are, it is unlikely they will pursue a 25th Amendment removal from office. But what does this say about Biden continuing to run for office? 

“Mr. Biden’s memory was significantly limited, both during his recorded interviews with the ghostwriter in 2017, and in his interview with our office in 2023.”

“In his interview with our office, Mr. Biden’s memory was worse. He did not remember when he was vice president, forgetting on the first day of the interview when his term ended (‘If it was 2013 — when did I stop being vice president?’), and forgetting on the second day of the interview when his term began (‘In 2009, am I still vice president?’).”

“He did not remember, even within several years, when his son Beau died.”

“Mr. Biden’s apparent lapses and failures in February and April 2017 will likely appear consistent with the diminished faculties and faulty memory he showed in Zwonitzer’s interview recordings and in our interview of him.”

THIS SETS THE STAGE FOR BIDEN'S WITHDRAWAL FROM THE NOMINATION AND THE SELECTION OF A MORE FAVORABLE LAST-MINUTE CANDIDATE -- WHICH WILL LEAVE THE GOP UNPREPARED AND UNABLE TO USE BIDEN AS A FOIL.

Bottom line…

BullshitShades of James Comey and Hillary Clinton—the evidence is there, but for various reasons, we decline to prosecute this Democrat.

At this point, only the reelection of Donald Trump can fix this cesspool of injustice.

I also wonder if the deep state timed this report to crowd Tucker Carlson's interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin out of the news cycle--and yes, I am that cynical and skeptical.

We are so screwed.

FOR THOSE WORRIED ABOUT 2024 ELECTION INTEGRITY

For those of you who have been called conspiracy theorists, crazies, or worse because you have questioned the election integrity of the 2020 Presidential Election, you are not alone.

On Wednesday, February 7, 2024, at 9:00 a.m. E.T., the Committee on House Administration held a full committee hearing titled “American Confidence in Elections: Confronting Zuckerbucks, Private Funding of Election Administration.”

The entire question of election integrity was eloquently summarized by journalist and author Mollie Hemmingway...

The American system of self-governance is under attack.

Instead of an Election Day where everyone votes at the same time and with the same full set of information, votes are counted quickly, and everyone promptly knows and trusts the outcome, we now have lengthy election seasons that can last months prior to and even after Election Day. The situation is so absurd that we have presidential and gubernatorial debates weeks after some people have voted.

Instead of having total security and a verifiable chain of custody for ballots being issued, cast, and counted, we flood addresses across the country with tens of millions of unsupervised mail-in ballots months ahead of elections, frequently to locations from which voters, if they’re even alive, have long since moved.

Instead of having election administration that is rigorously nonpartisan and impartial under the law, we have allowed the private takeover of government election offices by partisan oligarchs and their armies of activists who use those offices and their authorities to tilt the election toward favored candidates.

Instead of voters being able to vote for the candidate of their choice, powerful interests backed by wealthy oligarchs are working to remove the most popular candidate -- and the ruling party’s chief opponent from the ballot -- in a move reminiscent of Soviet Russia. And if that weren’t enough, instead of the top candidates chosen by the people being able to fully engage in a vigorous campaign heading into the election, we have one side actively attempting to throw its opponent in prison and bankrupt his family, moves that are also reminiscent of Soviet Russia.

Instead of a system of rule of law that gives Americans the same rights and due process, the Department of Justice and other partisan actors prosecute their political opposition – whether powerful or lowly -- and do so only in places where partisan courts and juries will ensure a quick conviction.

Instead of a free and independent press that shares news and information to inform voters on crucial matters, we have a press that is almost exclusively the arm of one political party and is so corrupt that it is willing to perpetrate hoax after hoax against opposition party members.

Instead of a vibrant public square where Americans can debate issues and express their strongly held views, we have an elaborate censorship industrial complex where the government works hand in hand with tech oligarchs to suppress and blacklist debate on all the important issues that contribute to election outcomes. This is something I know firsthand because my own government worked with tech companies to censor me for my election reporting.

Allowing just one of these attacks to infect our electoral system would be a crisis. Allowing all of them at the same time is an existential threat to our system of self-government.

In my best-selling book on how election administration has been co-opted by groups seeking political power, I reported on a new phenomenon in the 2020 election that has already severely eroded trust and needs to be addressed decisively. In the last presidential election, nonprofit groups with strong ties to the Democrat Party -- and funded by one of the world’s wealthiest and most powerful men, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg -- took over government election offices, most notably in the Democrat areas of swing states.3 Since then, the efforts by partisans to further infiltrate government election offices to ensure favorable outcomes have only increased.

According to the most recent census data, more than 12 percent of residents move every year and a 2012 Pew study found that about one out of every eight voter registrations in America are “no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate.” As a result, many ballots circulate for weeks before Election Day, and elections are increasingly being decided by technologically sophisticated ballot harvesting operations that parachute into decisive battlegrounds and scare up enough votes from otherwise unmotivated voters to overcome the natural enthusiasm of informed and self-motivated voters who make the effort to get to the polls.

While aggressive ballot harvesting by political parties and interest groups is certainly concerning, the 2020 election saw the advent of something far more sinister. A sophisticated national partisan turnout operation funded by an activist billionaire and run by ideological statisticians ran get-out-the-vote and ballot harvesting operations to benefit Democrats directly out of local election offices.

In 2020, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan distributed $328 million in grants known as “Zuck Bucks” to local election offices – and another $69.5 million to state election offices -- ostensibly to help local election infrastructure cope with the COVID crisis. However, these grants were distributed via two progressive groups: the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), whose entire budget as recently as 2018 had been a comparatively paltry $1.4 million, and the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR), which is run by left-wing activist David Becker.8 One of CTCL’s founders is Tiana Epps-Johnson, who had also been an Obama Foundation fellow as well as an employee at the Voting Rights Project for the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights, an advocacy group which received funding from George Soros and some of the biggest left-wing foundations in the country. Epps-Johnson founded CTCL with Whitney May and Donny Bridges. All three worked on election-related activism together at the New Organizing Institute, which The Washington Post described as “the Democratic Party’s Hogwarts for digital wizardry.”

Not surprisingly, these Democratic party activists "awarded all larger grants – on both an absolute and per capita basis to deeply Democratic urban areas," particularly in swing states, according to a report by William Doyle, research director at the Caesar Rodney Election Research Institute, and Alex Oliver, chief data scientist at Evolving Strategies, a nonpartisan research group.

After being criticized for exploiting local government election offices to juice Democratic voter turnout, Zuckerberg commissioned his own report highlighting the fact that “more Republican jurisdictions, defined as municipalities that voted for Trump in 2020, applied for and received grants.”

However, this was deeply misleading. Republican jurisdictions were far more likely to receive grants of less than $50,000, and these small grants comprised just 27% of the center’s awards. To give you an idea of how stark the difference was, Georgia alone received 10 of the top 50 grants per capita, totaling $41 million, which is more than 10% of the $328 million CTCL spent on the entire country. Nine of those grants went to counties with an average partisan lean of 35 points in favor of Joe Biden.

In 2016, Donald Trump won Georgia by five points, but in 2020, following the massive infusion of Zuckerberg’s cash, he came up around 11,000 votes short of winning the state again.

On average, counties in Georgia that were funded by Zuck Bucks saw an increase in the Democratic share of the vote that was more than twice that of counties that did not receive any Zuck Bucks funding.

Similarly, what happened in Georgia played out in other swing states. For instance, the CTCL awarded a total of $10.1 million in grants in Wisconsin, but nearly $8.5 million of that went to just five cities of Green Bay, Kenosha, Madison, Milwaukee, and Racine – cities where Biden’s average margin of victory was over 37 points.15 Wisconsin was another state that Trump won in 2016 that he very narrowly lost in 2020.

Ultimately, Doyle and Oliver’s report concludes that “the distribution of the CTCL program’s grant amounts – both in absolute and per capita terms – shows, unequivocally, a systematic bias in favor of Democratic jurisdictions.”

And further, the larger grants that were awarded revealed a “partisan pattern of funding [that] was especially apparent in swing states.” Overall, a county that voted for Biden was over 3.5 times more likely to be funded by CTCL than a county Trump won. Trump counties received an average of $0.59 per capita in Zuck Buks, while Biden counties received $2.85 per capita.

The money given to local election offices was rarely spent on COVID-related issues. For instance, the three counties that received the most Zuck Buck funding spent only 1.3 percent of that funding on personal protective equipment. The bulk of the money was spent on items such as salaries, laptops, vehicle rentals, attorneys’ fees, mail-in balloting, and other measures that allowed elections offices to hire activists to work the election.

And CTCL leveraged Zuck Bucks to play a direct role in running elections in critical areas. In Green Bay, Wisconsin, emails to the mayor’s office from the center touted its “network of current and former election administrations and election experts available” and expertise in “vote by mail processes,” and promised they would “ensure forms, envelopes, and other materials are understood and completed correctly by voters.” Green Bay’s city government would eventually outsource critical election responsibilities to CTCL. In an email dated July of 2020, the chief of staff for Green Bay Mayor Eric Genrich wrote, “As far as I’m concerned I am taking all of my cues from CTCL and work with those you recommend.”

CTCL eventually helped install an out-of-state operative named Michael Spitzer-Rubenstein in Green Bay and other Wisconsin election offices. Spitzer-Rubenstein engaged in questionable activities for someone who was not a public official, such as asking for direct access to the Milwaukee Election Commission’s voter database. Green Bay City Clerk Kris Teske took leave a few weeks before the election and quit shortly after. She cited Spitzer-Rubenstein assuming her responsibilities as one reason why. "[Green Bay Mayor Genrich] had [an] agenda when it came to the election and I nor the Clerk’s Office were included even though it’s the Clerk’s job to administer an election,” Teske wrote in an email. “He allowed staff who were not educated on election law to run the election, along with people who weren’t even City of Green Bay employees.”

Green Bay was not the only example of Democratic politicians abusing Zuck Bucks. Broad and Liberty, a publication dedicated to Pennsylvania politics, obtained emails showing that the office of Pennsylvania’s Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf coordinated with left-wing nonprofits to implement a secretive process that selectively invited Democratic counties to apply for Zuck Bucks grants.

CTCL founder Tiana Epps-Johnson told the Washington Post in 2022 the awarding of Zuck Bucks grants “reflected where the requests for funding came from, not any bias on the part of her organization.” But the center has not been transparent about the internal process it used for awarding grants.

Since these abuses of nonpartisan government election offices were highlighted in the 2020 election, some 27 states have passed laws banning the private funding of elections.23 However, organizations on the Left are actively trying to circumvent these bans. Late last year, The Honest Elections Project highlighted the existence of a new $80 million organization, the U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence, designed to infiltrate local election offices and do it in a way specifically designed to get around bans on direct funding of election offices.

“County election offices that enroll in the [U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence] receive legal and political consultation, public relations assistance, and guidance on recruitment and training,” notes an article coauthored by Jason Snead of the Honest Elections Project and Andy Jackson of the Civitas Center for Public Integrity. “Once counties are enrolled, the Alliance gathers detailed information on the offices’ inner workings and provides specific ‘improvement plans’ to reshape the way they operate. In other words, the Alliance allows the left to have deep influence on election Administration.”

Some functions of government are so sacred they must not ever be overtaken by outside interests. Free and fair elections are a crucial aspect of our Constitutional republic. Wealthy and powerful
individuals messing with the integrity of our elections is a grave matter requiring careful oversight. When stated plainly, the issue here should be agreed upon by all Americans: The people counting our votes should not be partisans, and the counting of America’s votes should not be privately funded by activist billionaires.

Allowing the private takeover of government election offices undermines trust in government at the deepest levels. Everyone in Congress, regardless of party, should see this as the threat that it is and come together and put a stop to it.

<Source with footnotes>

Bottom line...

The three biggest sources of electoral fraud in 2020 were attributed to illegal election rule changes made possible by Chief Justice John Roberts'  Supreme Court which refused to hear a seminal case in Pennsylvania that should have affirmed that rule changes were limited to state legislatures and not functionaries and judges, mail-in voting without procedural checks and balances, vote harvesting, and, as we have seen, the interference of big-money interests in mostly Democrat precincts. 

If this is allowed to continue, we might as well welcome the Democrats as the single-party authoritarian controlling America without the "consent of the governed."

We are so screwed.

A HAGGARD, AGING, ANN COULTER STRUGGLES TO STAY RELEVANT

ANN-COULTER

As one who used to read Ann Coulter with anticipation, I am incredibly saddened to find that her outspoken sharp wit has morphed into the shrill anti-Trump rantings of a 62-year-old harpy bitch who is struggling to maintain relevance in this age of snapshots and soundbites—the very nature of today’s political discourse.

However, to suggest that the nation would benefit from the death of former president Donald Trump, given his multitude of domestic and foreign accomplishments, is beyond the pale and worthy of unconditional condemnation. Other than shock value, and it isn’t even that shocking given the former President’s treatment by the progressive communist democrats, it serves no purpose other than to bring media attention to this has-been pundit.

Unacceptable...

Ann Coulter: To Help Bring America Back, the Best Thing Trump Could Do Is Die

If there’s one thing Ann Coulter is good at, it’s being vocal.

Still, no matter what you think of former President Trump, you have to admit that Miss Coulter crossed a line when she suggested on Twitter/X that the best thing Donald Trump could do for the country is “die.” Yes, really. <Source>

Ac-td

Now is now, then was then…

Let us not forget that Ann Coulter wrote the September 2016 New York Times bestseller, Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome! By the end of Trump’s presidency on January 20, 2021, Coulter had flipped her opinion of Trump, stating, “Trump betrayed his own supporters at every turn ... I hate him. He’s a betrayer.”

Coulter was trash-talking about Trump and his family in the Daily Beast, a progressive communist democrat rag owned by uber-Democrat billionaire Barry Diller’s IAC.

Ann Coulter Blames’ Gigantic Pussy’ Trump for MAGA Riots: ‘I Hate Him’

“We finally got the authoritarian liberals have been talking about,” the right-wing firebrand told The Daily Beast. “And I want to point out what a gigantic pussy he is. Who are these people still supporting Trump and this nonsense ‘stop the steal’? I don’t understand why. Why are you doing this for Trump when he doesn’t give a crap about you? These poor, working-class Americans, hanging on by their fingernails! No, he didn’t have time for them. He was too busy talking to Bob Woodward.”

Coulter went on: “He held a rally and he encouraged them to march on the Capitol while he goes back to the White House to have a nice lunch because he’s a gigantic pussy. He always has other people doing his dirty work. He was this tough guy on The Apprentice. He couldn’t even fire his own attorney general. He sent Corey Lewandowski to do it. He just trash-tweets Jeff Sessions on Twitter. Oooohh what a big man!”

Coulter sputtered with rage as she vented about the soon-to-be ex-president. “I hate him,” she seethed.

“Trump betrayed his own supporters at every turn,” Coulter added. “He turned over his presidency to Idiot Boy Jared. Who is still supporting this guy? So now we see. And he tells them, ‘yeah go march on the Capitol,’ and then he goes back to the White House, gets in bed and starts tweeting.” <Source>

Bottom line…

It is time for the anti-Trump faction to get over their angst and help protect America from the progressive communist democrats who are hoping for the division to split the vote in favor of the Democrats.

We are so screwed.

Bottom line…

While Republicans can not remedy all of our problems, they were created by the progressive communist democrats.

We are so screwed—unless we vote the bastards out of office.

THE DEMOCRAT'S GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD STILL WORKS

PELOSI-JAIL

What do Hunter Biden and Paul Pelosi, Jr. have in common?

The answer is simple: both are sons of powerful progressive communist Democrats and enjoy tremendous deference from federal government law enforcement agencies that are directly impacted by the decisions made by these powerful politicians. So, it would seem natural that the sons of these politicians are exempt from the consequences of their actions that would see ordinary citizens without such connections in prison.

So why am I not surprised when this appears in the Daily Mail, a British daily middle-market tabloid newspaper that does a better job covering the U.S. than the legacy media in our country?

Nancy Pelosi's son Paul Pelosi Jr. dodges federal charges for the SEVENTH time after being linked to money laundering and mail fraud scheme involving a San Francisco Flop house

Two fraudsters linked to Nancy Pelosi's son are set to be sentenced over a money laundering and mail fraud scheme, DailyMail.com can reveal.

It is the seventh federal case that Paul Pelosi Jr., the 55-year-old son of the former House Speaker, has been embroiled in, documented in an extensive investigation by DailyMail.com.

The charges leveled by federal prosecutors against fraudsters Bill Garlock and Gina Rodriguez, include shady dealings over a San Francisco flop house that Pelosi Jr. claimed to own.

Garlock and Rodriguez have cut a plea deal and are scheduled to be sentenced in March.

The latest law enforcement bust on the real estate dealers linked to Pelosi Jr. has led financial crime experts to question why Nancy's son avoided indictment himself – even after he was identified by documents reviewed by DailyMail.com as paying bribes to get building permits on his Mission District flop house. <Source>


Smoking gun documents tie Nancy Pelosi's son to fraud and bribery scheme to remove permit violations against squalid San Francisco flop house owned by his ex-girlfriend and probed by the FBI

Nancy Pelosi's son listed himself as the owner of a flop house tied to a fraud and bribery scheme prosecuted by the FBI, in documents newly unearthed by DailyMail.com.

In the documents, Paul Pelosi Jr. signed statements that he was the property owner, 'the party legally and financially responsible for this proposed construction activity' and agreed to 'abide by all applicable laws and requirements that govern Owner-Builders as well as employers.'

And they even show Pelosi Jr., 53, applying for one of the very same permits that building inspector Bernie Curran and 'permits expeditor' Rodrigo Santos have been indicted for.

The Department of Building Inspection (DBI) form, signed by Pelosi Jr. and dated December 7, 2017, is a 'smoking gun' that evidences the House Speaker's son's close links to the high-profile public corruption criminal case.

[OCS: It gets stranger still…]

As well as tying Pelosi Jr. to an alleged criminal scheme, the December 2017 DBI form also raises serious questions over how he came to own, or own a share of, the multi-million-dollar building.

[Karena] Feng, who was previously in a romantic relationship with Pelosi Jr., sued him in 2019 claiming he conspired with a now-convicted lawyer and fraudulent realtor to steal the property from her.

Pelosi Jr. and the other defendants denied the claims, Feng's case was dismissed in 2020 on technical grounds, and she has not refiled.

Pelosi Jr. was recorded as the listing agent on a 2015 contract in which Feng sold the property for $4million, though she claimed her signature on it was forged.

He was also listed as chief financial officer of Feng RE Inc, Feng's company which held the flop house, in 2015.  <Source>

[OCS: About Karena Feng -- Karena Apple Feng (冯道芬) is a Real Estate and political consultant campaigning for the U.S. Representative for California’s 9th congressional district since 2021. Karena first campaigned for Diane Feinstein when she was mayor of San Francisco in the 80’s; campaigned for supervisor Aaron Peskin of San Francisco in 2015; campaigned for Mayor London Breed of San Francisco in 2019; just to name a few. Karena currently is Chairwoman of Torres Presidential Campaign Committee 2024. <Source>]

Bottom line…

Let us remember that under American jurisprudence, such as it is in the age of progressive communist democrats, everybody is presumed innocent until they are found guilty in a court of law—that is, except for Donald Trump, who is presumed guilty before any trial.

The fallback defense to any criminal allegations can be found in the participants' relative power structure and the transaction's complexity.

Our Constitution and the Rule of Law are rapidly eroding under the progressive communist democrats, especially here in California.

We are so screwed.

COMMUNIST ATTACK: PICTURES SAY IT ALL...

ILLEGAL-ALIEN Illegal-alien-biden BIDEN-MAD-AD-HELL CHI-MAYOR

Bottom line...

What we are witnessing is the inversion of society, where up is down, black is white, truth is false, and where government institutions that were meant to protect "We the People" are attacking "We the People."

The old communist ploy of attacking from both sides, the elites and the poor, and destroying the middle class.

"The middle class made the dream of liberty a possibility, set limits on the government, fought for its constitutions, removed much of governmental privilege and tyranny, demanded that rulers obey the just laws as closely as the people, and enforced a general civic morality." -- Taylor Caldwell, “The Middle Class Must Not Die,”

There is no other explanation.  This is not a culture war, but a continuation of the communist cold war--aided and abetted by corrupt politicians who can be bought for the proverbial thirteen pieces of silver.

We are suffering from an inversion of reality, where the progressive communist democrats project their own behavior onto the non-existent MAGA Republican menace that exists mainly in the minds of media manipulators and propagandists.

We are so screwed.
