Appointment of Special Counsel Amounts
to Election Interference and Sets Dangerous Precedent

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 11/27/2022 11:52:03 AM

While Republicans kicked off the 2024 presidential race with the announcement that Donald Trump was running for president, in perhaps the ultimate sign of our ignominious times, Democrats, in effect, kicked off their half of the contest three days later by appointing a special counsel to escalate their political prosecution of him. This is where “our democracy” stands today: with its purported defenders engaging in the singularly anti-democratic act of siccing a hyper-politicized law enforcement apparatus on a candidate for the highest elected office, on dubious grounds, thereby subverting the political process by which we decide who represents us.

The house could defund the special counsel. If nothing else, reduce the DOJ budget 1 million dollars for every dollar they spend on the special counsel.

This will end up with the SCOTUS. That is the good news. The bad news is that this SCOTUS just handed Trump’s taxes to the Democrats.

Trump would be an 80 year old guaranteed one-term president. He's already had one. DeSantis ,but not until Dems have spent a zillion anti-Trump dollars.

They don’t care and they aren’t even trying to hide it. They believe they are close to consolidating their power into a permanent ruling class, restoring what they assume to be their destiny, before it was so rudely derailed by Donald Trump in 2016. They then won’t need to worry about any steenkin’ precedents. Elections will just be for show, to distract and deceive the sheeple into thinking they still have representative government.

There is zero predicate for appointing a special counsel. That is only going to harden an already hardened opposition to the Democrats. We are not moving anywhere, and we are not doing anything you say. Have a nice day!

Every bit of this was predictable. There have been no surprises in the action of government on behalf of the UNIPARTY to ensure FPDT doesn't return. There is much too large an investment in the '20 election to allow a repeat. This will ratchet up as needed, all the way to indictments and perhaps a perp walk. And you'll not hear a peep from GOPe leaders, none of which wants FPDT back in office. BTW: There's no law prohibiting what was done. It's a DOJ "policy". The cultists need to at least consider a Plan B...their boy isn't going anywhere in '24 with the UNIPARTY, including Federal and New York authorities, arrayed to stop him.

It’s really cute that some of you actually believe we have a Department of Justice based upon the Constitution and rule of law. Democrats run the DOJ and FBI to their advantage and don’t even try to hide it. They have been after President Trump with a vengeance since 2015 and they will not stop pursuing his destruction. No law will prevent them. No election will stop them. No amount of public opinion will deter them. They have one goal. Destroy the man who means to destroy them. They started this fight and by all that is high and holy I hope Trump gets to finish it.

But what can be done about it? Nothing, as far as I can see. Mueller ran a hyper-partisan show that nearly destroyed Trump's presidency, too. Remember how it was demanded that Trump's DOJ be independent and how he was betrayed by two AGs--Sessions and Barr. But a Democrat's DOJ is openly partisan and working for the President's interests. We saw this in the Hillary Clinton "investigation."

If Republicans are in lock step with the democrat-led UNIPARTY, then why do democrats cheat to get elected? If that can't or won't be answered, then perhaps the claims of an all-powerful UNIPARTY is a divide-and-conquer strategy/meme for virulent anti-Republicans, including the most popular Republican in the land, Donald Trump..

Meghan Markle is said to be fuming that she has no access to the royal jewels. At King Charles III’s first state dinner for South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, Queen Consort Camilla wore a diamond and sapphire tiara that belonged to Queen Elizabeth II, while the Princess of Wales, Kate, wore the pearl and diamond tiara that was the favorite crown of the late Princess Diana. Markle is said to feel left out. Meghan is still Duchess of Sussex, but has no right to borrow the royal tiaras and gems the way her rivals do. All Meghan has is a pair of modest pearl and diamond earrings that Queen Elizabeth gave her.

At least 42 Biden administration officials were sent letters by Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee this month requesting testimony from a variety of White House officials. Those letters primarily dealt with the suspected politicization of the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ), investigations into U.S. border security, and President Joe Biden’s son Hunter. A recent letter (pdf) led by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) to White House chief of staff Ron Klain requested testimony from Biden administration staffers relating to alleged “misuse of federal criminal and counterterrorism resources to target concerned parents at school board meetings.” Interviews from four White House officials were requested.

Has anyone stopped to ask why the United States taxpayer is responsible for funding the government operations of Ukraine, to include the paychecks and pensions of Ukrainian government officials, or nah? As Joe Biden and various Democrat and Republican leaders are gleefully willing to keep pushing U.S. taxpayer money into Ukraine, there does come a time when we have to start asking some questions about the disconnect in regard to the opinion of the American people.

On November 23rd a fire broke out in Urumqi’s Jixiang Yuan district in an apartment complex. Because of the Chinese COVID lockdown, it is claimed the doors to the building were locked from the outside; people could not escape. Jennifer Zeng has been documenting the story on Twitter. Fire trucks were not permitted to get close enough to the building and the people locked inside could not escape. Chinese media initially said 10 people were killed;(wnip) The current death toll stands at 44 victims. This horrific event seems to have become the inflection point for a large uprising against the Chinese Communist Party and the continual COVID lockdown rules.

There’s a remarkable concession appearing in The Washington Post today: “a majority of Americans dying from the coronavirus received at least the primary series of the vaccine.” The latest data shows that 58% of COVID-19 deaths in August 2022 were from people who were vaccinated or boosted. Based on past figures and the current trends, we can reasonably estimate that the number of vaccinated/boosted COVID-19 deaths will only rise. (In September 2021, the vaccinated accounted for 23% of COVID-19 deaths; in January/February 2022, the vaccinated were 42%.) This is what happens when you rush ineffective and dangerous vaccines.

The Left, the NeverTrump Right, and many independents are tiring of Donald Trump’s recitations of prior, however justified, grievances at the hands of the media, the Democratic Party, the administrative state, and hard-core Left. The conventional wisdom runs that Trump’s whines and victimization recitations reveal deep paranoias, and increasingly to an obsessive degree. We are told that his near neurotic obsessions with the unfairness of his critics are alienating the independent voter, who finds Trump’s strolls down 2020-21 memory lane the same-old, same-old ad nauseam.

President Biden urged Congress Monday to intervene to avert a "potentially crippling national rail shutdown," after multiple rail labor unions shot down an agreement brokered by the White House in September. American consumers and virtually all industries could take a hit at the beginning of the holiday season if workers do strike as soon as Dec. 5. Congress could intervene and impose contract terms on railroad workers, which is what Mr. Biden is urging them to do. Thanks to the Railway Labor Act, passed in 1926, Congress can force workers back to their stations with a congressional resolution.
