No justice? No peace.
The Elijah Barrett Prettyman Courthouse in Washington, D.C. is center stage this month to two competing tales of stolen presidential elections.
In the courtroom of U.S. District Court Judge Christopher Cooper, federal prosecutors have presented a detailed account of the greatest scandal in U.S. political history: the conspiracy of the country’s most powerful interests to fabricate the Trump-Russia collusion hoax in order to sabotage Donald Trump before the 2016 election.
Michael Sussmann, a lawyer formerly employed at Perkins Coie, the influential law firm that funded the infamous Steele dossier on behalf of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, is on trial for lying to the FBI. Sussmann is accused of presenting phony data alleged to prove a connection between Trump and a Russian bank to the department just weeks before Election Day 2016.
The sinister collaboration, exposed years ago by reporters and bloggers on the Right but now confirmed by Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation, involved Democratic Party honchos including the candidate herself; top officials at the Department of Justice, who used the dossier as evidence for a warrant to spy on Trump’s campaign; FBI officials and informants; the Central Intelligence Agency; and of course, the national news media.
Russia’s interference in the 2016 election to rig the outcome in favor of Trump was accepted as truth not just by the same interests responsible for the hoax but by tens of millions of Americans. Roughly half the country openly refused to accept the fact that Trump won fair and square. Media-fueled accusations that the new president and Russian President Vladimir Putin “stole” the election prompted the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller in May 2017, a move supported by most Republicans in Washington.
Trump’s first two years in office were severely hobbled by the nonstop collusion drama as Mueller’s team systematically rounded up Trump allies on unrelated charges to produce breaking headlines and speculation that Trump would be the next one in handcuffs. Even after Mueller in 2019 finally admitted his prosecutors found no evidence of election-altering collusion, 84 percent of Democrats still believed Trump had been in cahoots with the Russians. For four years, Democrats proudly displayed #NotMyPresident hashtags on social media platforms.
And to this day, Hillary Clinton insists the 2016 election “was not on the level.”
But that sort of talk has not been designated the “Big Lie” by the news media or criminalized by the Justice Department. Any suggestion that the 2016 election was “rigged” or “stolen” remains safely under the purview of protected speech and in many quarters, is still considered an indisputable fact.
Not so for those who doubt the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. Which is why, just a few floors below Judge Cooper’s courtroom, Timothy Hale is on trial for his participation in the protest at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.
While the wheels of justice turn excruciatingly slow for Trump-Russian collusion schemers such as Sussmann, the government has moved at lightning speed to round up dissidents of the Biden regime. More than 800 Americans who protested Biden’s election on January 6 face criminal charges; the Justice Department announces new arrests every week.
Unlike Michael Sussmann, who walked free for five years following the commission of his alleged crime, Tim Hale has been in jail under pre-trial detention orders for more than 16 months.
Yet Hale’s alleged offenses were far less damaging to the country than the crimes Sussmann and his accomplices are accused of committing. On January 6, Hale, an Army reservist, drove to Washington after working the night shift at a New Jersey Naval station to hear President Trump speak. Later that afternoon, Hale walked to Capitol Hill. He entered the Capitol building around 2:14 p.m. through a set of open doors; Hale carried no weapon and didn’t assault anyone. On at least two occasions, Hale is seen interacting with police officers, who did not attempt to arrest either him or those around him.
After 40 minutes, Hale exited the building and drove back to New Jersey in time to start his night shift again. One week later, after his roommate agreed to secretly record a conversation for NCIS, Hale was arrested by at least a dozen armed FBI agents. (His roommate subsequently was paid $4,000 by NCIS for producing the two-hour recording.)
Since then, Biden’s Justice Department has devoted untold human and financial resources to prosecute Hale, who was indicted on four misdemeanors and one obstruction felony. Federal taxpayers have paid to keep Hale, who has no criminal record, incarcerated at a D.C. gulag set aside for Trump supporters. Numerous prosecutors, assistants, law enforcement officers, tech experts, private contractors, and witnesses spent over a year building the case against Hale.
Regardless of the verdicts for Sussmann and Hale, it’s increasingly clear Americans continue to live in two separate and unequal systems of government. One side enjoys a protracted legal process that ultimately results in a slap on the wrist, favorable—or buried—news coverage, and a sympathetic jury pool among other benefits. The opposite side is hunted, incarcerated, and humiliated, left to the nonexistent mercies of a ruling class that views them with palpable contempt.
I don’t really need to tell y’all how things turned out for Sussman, do I?
D.C. Jury Finds Michael Sussmann Not Guilty of Making a False Statement to the FBI
Yeah, didn’t think I needed to. Read all of NiceDeb’s pukeworthy exposé…and be sure to take yourself a long, scalding-hot shower to rinse away the slime, ooze, and putrescence afterwards.
How long must we endure the in-your-face corruption? The audacious, swaggering arrogance? The sneering disdain for basic human decency, honor, and moral rectitude? The cocksure flouting of every known standard of integrity? The shameless mockery of the very system they’ve so profoundly warped, yet still possess the unmitigated gall to drape over themselves for shelter and/or concealment?
How long, O Lord, how long?
Tells you exactly how deep the swamp is, doesn’t it?
I swear, John, I dunno about you, but every day it gets harder and harder for me to simply sit down, catch up on what’s happening, do some research on a topic I find of interest, form a viewpoint about it, and force myself to find something to say that might be worth anybody’s while to read. Who the hell do I think I am doing any such thing, anyway? After twenty years plus, what the hell could possibly be left for me to say that I haven’t already said a thousand and one times, for Pete’s sake?
The futility; how incredibly deep this eternal rut we’re all stuck in is; the way everything just plods on and on as ever without the slightest hope of improvement or even meaningful change; the way in which, no matter how low the shitlibs sink, how bad the situation gets, how much tighter the noose is drawn, things somehow, against all odds, find a way to get still worse?
How depressing it all is, y’know?
I sink far down enough into that bleak miasma of circular tail-chasing and I’d rather do just about anything you could possibly think of, up to and including putting a fresh coat of paint on the living room ceiling; suddenly waking up to find myself in a shoulder-to-shoulder crush of chanting, purple-faced, doughy delegates, party hacks, and star-struck media buttsucks smack in the middle of the convention floor at the DNC; or scooping the turds out of the cat litter box, than keep on bloodying my knuckles punching away at the brick wall of this damned blogging wheeze. You ever get to feeling the same way about this thing we do, perchance?
I do think we’ll have interesting times for the next six months leading into the Midterms. I also get the feeling something momentous is in the works. Not just your average shitlib riots and suckitude. Something really big we can’t even fathom right now.
For the first time in my life I do actually, seriously consider it a possibility we won’t even have Midterms.
People said it a lot under 0. Even crazier, it was practically a daily occurrence that it was reported that Trump would cancel the Elections. I didn’t take any of that seriously.
The fight for freedom never ever ends. We all grew up in an inter period where the fight was easy, as others gave prior to us.
Their giving was a gift that bought freedom and prosperity for generations, occasionally getting attacked and re-energized.
The time of giving cometh once again.
Sometimes I think, “Awww, no, not this crap. Not again!”
It amazes me how simple the playbook is, and how often it’s repeated. What keeps me going is that I simply love to bring the light to the cockroaches and watch them scurry. My place has been attacked, again and again, so I know I’ve irritated someone. Which means I’m over the target.
The Mrs., especially, is a source of inspiration. She told me, “John, what you’re doing is important. If it wasn’t, you and I would have words over it.” And you know what have words means. That’s why I make a special effort on Fridays to have a remoralization post. So much of what the Swamp, the Globalists, the Left (call them what you will) does is to try to attempt to tell us that what we do doesn’t matter.
If that was the case, they wouldn’t try to make us give up on doing it. My personal mission, and what my passion is, is to help people see things that they wouldn’t have seen without my help. It is my personal remoralization to take the biggest humorous needle that I can find to try ot pop their balloon. There is nothing, and I repeat nothing, that they hate more than being exposed and mocked. My blog has cost me thousands of hours of personal time and thousands of dollars of personal money – I’ve made exactly zero. But when I go to bed after a good post, it makes it all worthwhile.
Sorry for the long answer!
TL:DR – I love hitting them where it hurts. I just want to get so good that they can’t ignore me, and so good that I can bring light to others.
You know the answer, Mike. We all do. It’s our secret shame.
What is undeniable about the whole thing is that he did indeed make false statements to the FBI. In fact, ALL of it was false, not just the part about not working on behalf of the DNC and Crooked Campaign.
That the FBI knew it was all lies right from the start (because some of them helped fabricate it?) is irrelevant.
“That the FBI knew it was all lies right from the start…”
With an FBI office right there in the law firm…
Shocked I say! Shocked! Gambling in this establishment!
