GOP Speaker Johnson is Helping Criminals who Stormed the Capitol on January 6th to Evade the Law

The Republican Party has long referred to itself as the party of “law and order.” That has never really been true, but it is farther removed from that description than ever with its current leader, Donald Trump, who is facing 91 felony charges, and has already been found liable for multiple crimes including financial fraud and rape.

GOP Insurrection

The GOP has lately been embracing the alternate designation of “outlaw and disorder.” That’s especially evident in the aftermath of the violent insurrection that Trump incited on January 6, 2021, when he refused to peacefully leave office. Ever since then Trump has been feverishly disseminating his “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged and stolen” from him. Never mind that he has failed to produce a shred of evidence to support his claims in more than three years and 60+ court cases. And that failure is driving him crazy(er).

SEE THIS: Trump Confesses to Bouts of Rage and Gluttony After Liz Cheney Reports His Reaction to January 6

Adding to the GOP’s commitment to criminality is the new Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson. In a press conference on Tuesday Johnson was asked about the 44,000 hours of videos of the January 6th insurrection that he has promised to release to the public. He claims that this is an act of transparency that will allow the American people to judge for themselves what happened. As if they didn’t already see it live on television at the time. And does Johnson really think that people are going to sit through 44,000 hours of video, a task that would take them five years if they watched 24 hour a day?

Making matters even worse (a key feature of today’s Republicans in Congress), at Tuesday’s press conference Johnson repeated his intention to blur the faces of the people in the insurrection videos. However, on this occasion, Johnson stated his reason for doing so…

“We trust the American people to draw their own conclusions. They should not be dictated by some narrative and accept that as fact. So they can review the tapes themselves. We’re going through a methodical process of releasing them as quickly as we can. As you know, we have to blur some of the faces of persons who participated in the events of that day because we don’t want them to be retaliated against and to be charged by the DOJ, and to have other, you know, concerns and problems.”

To be clear, what Johnson is saying is that he is going to deliberately hide the identities of the criminals who stormed the Capitol, assaulted police, terrorized members of Congress and their staff, and vandalized public property, all in an effort to obstruct Congress from carrying out its constitutional duty to certify the election. In other words, he is obstructing justice in order to help treasonous thugs get away with their crimes.

This raises some pressing questions for Johnson and others on the right who insist that January 6th was nothing more than a pleasant stroll through the Capitol by tranquil tourists. For instance, why would Johnson want to blur the faces of people who were allegedly engaging in a peaceful, legal protest? And wouldn’t he want to expose the members of Antifa and the FBI stooges that the right claims were inciting the riots?

Apparently not. It appears that Johnson’s motives are to shield lawbreakers from accountability for their criminal acts. He is purposefully obstructing justice and withholding evidence from law enforcement. Although it’s likely that the FBI already has these videos, so the only people Johnson actually cares about releasing them to are the MAGA media who will distort them to create the sort of false narratives that Johnson said he wants to avoid.

Johnson’s method of editing and releasing the tapes will only aid and abet those who intend to commit more crimes in the future. And he is simultaneously casting doubt on the 2020 election by supporting those who falsely claim that it was stolen. But then, Johnson has been open about his own intentions with regard to his stewardship of the House…

Between now and November of 2024, the American people need to be repeatedly reminded that Republicans are affirmatively pro-criminal. They demonstrate that in their efforts to protect the Capitol rioters. It’s obvious in the excuses they make for undermining democracy. But even more so, it is evident in their worshipful, cult-like support for Trump, a recidivist lawbreaker who aspires to install himself as an American dictator. Which every patriotic American must work diligently to oppose and prevent. in the weeks leading up to the next election.

RELATED STORIES:

UPDATE: Johnson’s spokesman walked back his statements about blurring faces in the videos to keep the insurrectionists from being prosecuted. He says that Johnson meant that only videos available to the public would have the blurring. That, however, is not what he said. And how does it advance “transparency” if there is any such modifications at all? It’s likely they were told that Johnson’s remarks constituted obstruction of justice and they are trying to avoid legal liability.

Congress Boots Lying Liar George Santos, While Trump Remains Leader of the Republican Party

Joseph Goebbels, the minister of propaganda for the German Nazi government, was a notorious proponent of the “Big Lie” theory that says if you’re going to tell a lie, make a big one. He contended that people were more likely to believe a big lie told frequently, than smaller, less significant lies. And Donald Trump has demonstrated a lifelong commitment to confirming that theory.

Donald Trump Mugshot - Loser Emoji

On Thursday morning the House of Representatives voted to expel George Santos from Congress. Among the allegations against him were the repeated lies he has told about his past, and his criminal indictments currently pending. Why Republicans in Congress are suddenly worried about lying is a mystery, considering that it has been their chief political strategy since assuming their razor-thin majority in the House earlier this year.

SEE THIS: GOP and Fox News Oppose Public Testimony By Hunter Biden Because Then They Can’t Lie About It

The final vote to expel Santos was 311 to 114. However, it is notable that a majority of Republicans (105-112) voted against the expulsion. That includes every member of the GOP leadership. Apparently they favor keeping pathological liars in their caucus to advance their agenda along with fellow liars such as Jim Jordan, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, and their new Speaker, Mike Johnson.

Most Americans, though, will be relieved that a slimeball like Santos has been ousted. Just as they were relieved when Trump lost to President Biden in 2020. However, the Republican Party remains enamored of their most dishonest political leaders. And the best example of that is Trump himself.

A comparison of Trump and Santos reveals the GOP’s faith in the “Big Lie” theory. Santos told relatively small lies about his education, work experience, and personal history. Trump has told humungous lies to facilitate a violent coup in an effort to undermine American democracy. He also told large lies regarding his net worth in order to either avoid paying millions in taxes or to deceive banks to get lower loan rates. He also lied bigly about his sexual abuse of dozens of women, including the rape of writer E. Jean Carroll. In the Lie Derby, Trump is clearly the winner.

SEE ALSO: Ted Lieu Reads Federal Judge’s Confirmation that Trump is a Rapist Into Congressional Record

The Trump/Santos comparison is also notable in that Santos is awaiting trial on 23 charges. Trump has 91 charges currently pending, nearly four times as many as Santos. And while Santos hasn’t been convicted of anything yet, Trump has been found legally liable for financial fraud with his businesses, his “charity” foundation, his “university,” and for defamation and rape. But despite Trump’s dominance in both lies and crimes, it is Santos who got banished from his political perch. Meanwhile, Trump is the frontrunner for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination.

The lesson from this is that Santos erred by not committing more serious crimes. Had he done so he might now be Trump’s running mate. Although that may still be a possibility. Trump, on the other hand, has been rewarded for his more egregious criminality. Democrats don’t behave this way. For instance, Sen. Bob Menendez, who was recently indicted, has already been called on to resign by many Democratic senators.

Republicans, however, admire nothing more than crooks who are adept at getting away with their crimes. So it’s no wonder that they worship an accomplished mob boss like Trump. And the fact that some of them held Santos to account, but not Trump, really tells you all you need to know about the GOP’s affinity for outlaws.

Trump Aide Jason Miller Accused of Sexual Assault – Is That a Trump Employment Prerequisite?

The number of Donald Trump associates implicated in illegal and/or immoral conduct just went up again. He already held the record for such unsavory connections in both his political and private lives, but he is apparently determined to set the bar so high that no one will ever challenge his dominance in depravity.

Donald Trump, Pervert

Jason Miller, who is currently a senior advisor to Trump, has been accused of a variety of sexually related offences against another Trump aide, A.J. Delgado. He’s just the latest member of Trump’s inner circle to be charged with such grotesque misbehavior. Perhaps he can use as his defense that he was just following the example of his boss, who was recently affirmed to have committed rape against writer E. Jean Carroll.

SEE THIS: Ted Lieu Reads Federal Judge’s Confirmation that Trump is a Rapist Into Congressional Record

Delgado has filed a lawsuit against Miller, who has a prior history of alleged abuse and failure to take responsibility for his turpitude. According to Raw Story

“A lawsuit filed against longtime Trump aide Jason Miller accuses him engaging in ‘a cycle of sexual coercion, rape, sexual assault, abuse, battery, sexual harassment, and sex trafficking.’ [The lawsuit] was filed on behalf of A.J. Delgado, a former Trump 2016 campaign aide with whom Miller had an affair and who has since long accused Miller of stiffing her on child support payments.”

However, Miller is just the tip of the iceberg. The mob of miscreants that the Trump clan is composed of appears to be closely aligned with his set of morals, or lack thereof. In fact, the frequency of offenders on Trump’s team makes it appears as if committing sexual crimes is actually prerequisite to work for Trump, whose own vile exploits include dozens of allegations of assault and harassment. What follows is a partial, but noxious, enumeration of just a few of the perverts on Trump’s payroll.

Corey Lewandowski: “Former senior Donald Trump adviser Corey Lewandowski has cut a deal with Las Vegas prosecutors after he was charged with misdemeanor battery, stemming from allegations of unwanted sexual advances toward a woman during a charity dinner in Sept. 2021.”

Rudy Giuliani: “Cassidy Hutchinson, a former White House aide who became a key witness in congressional Jan. 6 hearings, alleges that former President Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, groped her on the day of the assault on the Capitol.”

Rob Porter “Rob Porter, a top White House aide with regular access to President Donald Trump abruptly resigned on Wednesday amid abuse allegations from two ex-wives.”

Boris Epshteyn “Boris Epshteyn, a longtime aide to former President Donald Trump, was arrested in 2021 after he was accused of repeatedly groping two women in an Arizona nightclub, according to police records.”

Andrew Puzder Andrew Puzder, “a former corporate executive alleging sex discrimination and sexual harassment by Donald Trump’s labor secretary nominee, Andrew Puzder”

Adam Hageman Adam Hageman, “A Trump Commerce Department official has been jailed for five-and-a-half years after pleading guilty to possession of child sexual abuse images.”

Kimberly Guilfoyle “Kimberly Guilfoyle was fired from Fox News because of ‘inappropriate behavior,’ adding weight to previous reports that she was ousted over sexual harassment allegations.”

That’s quite a rogues gallery. And while each of them have earned their own place in the Trump Hall of Shame, they all fall short of his lofty record of decadence and corruption. Trump is alleged to have harassed and/or assaulted at least 26 women. He has been found liable for fraud related to his real estate business, his charitable foundation, and his phony university. And he is now facing four indictments containing 91 felony charges ranging from obstruction of justice, to falsifying financial records, to stealing and hoarding classified documents, to interfering with an election, and to staging a violent coup.

Yet somehow he remains not just a viable candidate for the Republican nomination for president, but the runaway leader. His cult followers – while few in number but loud in voice – continue to worship him and pledge their votes. Which is curious considering that he doesn’t believe that someone like himself should even be allowed to run…

Trump is FREAKING OUT, Saying that His Trials Should Have Started Before He Committed His Crimes

The legal melodrama that is playing out for Donald Trump is becoming ever more dense with the demented spectacle of his singular brand of aberrant behavior. In recent weeks he has shown up in court only to sit and scowl for a couple of hours, then to whine in the hallway to reporters about what a poor, pathetic victim he is.

Donald Trump, Prison

While Trump is suffering severe anxiety due to the 91 felony counts against him that are pending in four jurisdictions, he is displaying increasing levels of desperation and hostility toward his perceived enemies. As a result, he has been sanctioned twice for violating a court order to refrain from attacking court personnel and witnesses. Meanwhile, his crime family accomplices (Ivanka, Eric, and Don Jr) have been ordered to testify at his trial, and his former lawyers (Sidney Powell, Kenneth Chesebro, and Jenna Ellis)) have been taking plea deals to save themselves.

SEE THIS: Trump’s Spokesperson Says He is ‘Confused’ About Why His Former Lawyers Would Plead Guilty

These would be highly distressing circumstances for anyone. But for a malignant narcissist like Trump they are impossible barriers to overcome psychologically or emotionally. Consequently, he is being driven to drastic depths of anguish and despair that are producing some of his most pronounced exhibitions of derangement. And naturally, he is venting his venom on his pitifully failing social media scam, Truth Social. In a flurry of comments Monday morning, Trump raged

“Why didn’t Crooked Joe Biden tell his Injustice Department to file the lawsuits and Indictments against me 3 years ago, instead of right in the middle of my campaign for President? You’re setting a BAD precedent for yourself, Joe. The same can happen to you. These Third World Biden Indictments, which should never have been filed, would have been tried and over with years ago. My SleazeBag Opponent shouldn’t be able to do this during my campaign, OR BEFORE THE ELECTION!”

Let’s take some time to unravel that rumpload of rubbish, shall we? For starters, there is no hint of proof that President Biden had anything to do with the indictments against Trump that were filed by three different prosecutors in both federal and state offices. Secondly, Trump is threatening to charge Biden with – who knows? Something or other – if he has the opportunity, despite insisting that such charges are unjust. Thirdly, Trump is now resorting to calling Biden a “Sleazebag,” which is a textbook example of projection in its most infantile form.

However, the most prominent crackpottery of Trump’s comment is his complaint that the charges against him should have been brought three years ago. Really? In October of 2020, while Trump was still president? That would mean that his Attorney General, Bill Barr, would have had to appoint the special prosecutor. So is Trump complaining that his own administration was negligent in enforcing the law against him?

What’s more, October of 2020 was before the November presidential election. So Trump is upset that he wasn’t charged with crimes that he had not even committed yet. Most of the pending indictments are related to his efforts to overturn the election, or to the insurrection that he incited on January 6, 2021, or to his theft and hoarding classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago home/hotel after he left the White House. All of which had not occurred yet three years ago.

Nevertheless, Trump thinks that he should have been charged in advance of his crimes. Is he admitting that he was already planning them? He also thinks that he is currently in the middle of his campaign for president, and that he should, therefore, not be charged at all. But he hasn’t stopped campaigning since his first announcement in 2015. Which is proof that his campaigns are actually just thinly veiled attempts to inoculate himself against indictments.

Trump followed up the comment above with three others that said essentially the same thing. First he wrote… “Why didn’t they start the totally political BIDEN INDICTMENTS & COURT CASES Three (3) Years Ago, instead of the MIDDLE OF MY CAMPAIGN??? Third World Country-ELECTION INTERFERENCE!!!” Then came… “If they started the highly political Biden Indictments 3 years ago, everything would now be finished. THEY WAITED UNTIL MY CAMPAIGN BEGAN!” And finally… “These highly political (All started by Crooked Joe Biden!) Lawsuits and Indictments shouldn’t be allowed to start until AFTER THE ELECTION IS OVER! Our Founding Fathers are looking down at Biden with scorn!”

Indeed, this would all have been finished by now if Trump had been tried three years ago. Although he is assuming that he would have been acquitted. But given the breadth and depth of his rampant criminality, that is not a safe assumption. While the trials would be over, he might also be in prison. So let’s hope he gets his wish to have these trials concluded long before the next election. Because the best way to prevent any “election interference” is for Trump and his confederates to be behind bars.

Trump’s Spokesperson Says He is ‘Confused’ About Why His Former Lawyers Would Plead Guilty

The past couple of weeks have been extraordinarily troubling for Donald Trump, who is currently awaiting trial on 91 felony charges. He was fined twice for violating a court order to refrain from attacking court personnel and witnesses. His crime family accomplices, Ivanka, Eric, and Don Jr, have been ordered to testify the first week of November. And even his former lawyers have been taking plea deals to save themselves.

Donald Trump Mugshot - Loser Emoji

The fact that Trump’s family and attorneys are potentially flipping has been gnawing at him. Trump’s customary response to such heinous disloyalty is to pretend that he has never met the slimeball who has turned on him, or that they were cowards who merely delivered the coffee. But that’s a much more difficult argument when they are his legal representative and his children.

SEE THIS: BREAKING: Trump Admits that He Knows His Daughter Ivanka, a Witness in His Financial Fraud Case

In the wake of these defections by his closest associates, Trump’s spokesperson, Liz Harrington, rose to his defense in a particularly peculiar manner. She was interviewed by Emerald Robinson, who has the distinction of having been fired by Newsmax for promoting a crackpot conspiracy theory that the COVID vaccine contained “Luciferase,” an allegedly Satanic, bioluminescent marker that would be used to track people.

Robinson landed at Mike Lindell’s video blog where she continues to disgrace herself as a profoundly deranged propagandist and Trump cultist. The interview contained the following exchange about Trump’s legal quagmire…

Robinson: How does the President feel about these former lawyers, or his former associates pleading guilty? What are his thoughts on these developments?
Harrington: Well, I think he’s a little confused because if you’re a lawyer you know that there’s no crimes here. According to the law there’s literally nothing to plead guilty to because there’s no laws that were broken. And speaking out against a fraudulent election, and telling people to watch hearings and petition their elected officials about fraud that was happening on camera? I mean, it’s just surprising.

Robinson’s question is curious in that she asks how “the President” feels about the betrayal by Trump’s legal team. But how would Harrington know what President Biden is feeling about that or anything else?

Harrington’s reply, however, was unexpectedly honest. Her characterization of Trump as “confused” accurately describes his grasp of pretty much any issue. He is, after all, the guy who thinks that he’s currently running against Obama, that windmills kill whales, that stealth fighters are actually invisible, that we should nuke hurricanes, that George Washington’s Army took over airports, and that injecting bleach will cure COVID. And on the basis of that display of his “stable genius”, Trump says that ANYBODY running for the Office of President of the United States should agree to take a full & complete Mental Competency Test.” Okay, you first.

Harrington edges closer to the truth in saying that “if you’re a lawyer you know” whether or not a crime has been committed. And so far four of Trump’s lawyers (Michael Cohen, Sidney Powell, Kenneth Chesebro, and Jenna Ellis) are so certain that crimes were committed that they pleaded guilty to their own participation in them. If Harrington’s assertion that there is “literally nothing to plead guilty to,” then why have four lawyers done just that?

Harrington went on to claim that Trump and his ex-counsel were just “speaking out against a fraudulent election, and telling people to watch hearings and petition their elected officials about fraud.” But she left out that they also knew that the allegations of election fraud were lies, and that their actions included fabricating false election forms and threatening state election officials.

So Harrington is surprised that Trump is confused? Just because he can’t tell the truth about the unlawful conduct that his own attorneys have confessed to? She may be even more surprised that the judges and juries who will hear these cases won’t be the least bit confused when the convict him. And his cult disciples will be both dazed and confused, singing “You hurt and abuse, telling all of your lies. Run ’round, sweet baby, Lord, how they hypnotize.”

Trump Literally Pledges to Stage ‘RIGGED’ Trials to Punish Democrats for Upholding the Law

If there is anything that America has learned in the past few years about Donald Trump, it is that he is congenitally disposed to violate the law whenever he deems it to be in his interest to do so. Those who have followed his misconduct in the business world, prior to his political misadventures, have known this all along.

Donald Trump, Constitution

Some of Trump’s past wrongdoings have come to light only after he entered politics. And in some measure he has been held accountable. For instance, his phony Trump University was shuttered and he was ordered to pay $25 million in restitution. His charitable foundation was also closed, and he and his family were prohibited from operating any such enterprise in New York for five years. More recently, his Trump Organization, the core of his real estate business, was found to have committed financial fraud, and he is currently in court where the penalties will be assessed and imposed.

SEE THIS: Crybaby Trump Returns to the New York Courtroom Where He Whines that ‘This is a Rigged Trial’

On Wednesday Trump made another appearance at the New York courtroom where his former attorney and fixer, Michael Cohen, is testifying. On this occasion, as on others, Trump took to his pitifully failing social media scam, Truth Social, to whine that he is a victim of a massive cabal that is determined to destroy him. He yowled that…

“I have a very partisan and angry Judge, a Corrupt Attorney General, and am not allowed a Jury Trial under the Statute they have chosen to use (for the very first time ever!). The good news, that even the Fake News is seeing, is that the facts are ALL on my side! [and that] This is a RIGGED TRIAL, right out of a Banana Republic, but sadly, it gives the Republicans the right to do the same thing when we assume office.”

Setting aside his tedious babbling about partisan judges and corrupt Attorney Generals, Trump made an explicit promise to any of his cult disciples who might be listening. Referring to the prosecutions that he insists are unconstitutional witch hunts, Trump says that Republicans now have “the right to do the same thing when we assume office.” So he is, in effect, pledging to conduct unconstitutional witch hunts if he gets the opportunity.

That shouldn’t surprise anyone. Trump has spent the past three years trying to unlawfully reverse the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. To that end, he has threatened government officials and filed dozens of frivolous lawsuits, which he lost. He currently has 91 felony charges pending against him. And three of his former lawyers have already pleaded guilty to election interference.

SEE ALSO: Trump Lies that Sidney Powell Was Never His Attorney After Her Election Interference Guilty Plea

Trump’s post was also notable for lying that, due to the statute that was “chosen,” he was not “allowed” to have a jury (if he wanted a jury he should have broken a law that permitted one), that the statute was never used before (yeah, it was), and that the media sees that the facts “are ALL on my side” (only if you limit your media to Fox News and Newsmax).

It isn’t unusual for a criminal defendant to complain about a prosecution being unfair or unlawful. But it is profoundly bizarre to then promise to exact revenge by engaging in the very same unlawfulness that was alleged. But that’s how Trump’s mind works. He thinks that if his car were repossessed for non-payment by the dealership, it would be okay for him to steal another car off the lot.

What’ more, Trump made some comments outside of the court that violated the gag order he was already under to refrain from disparaging or intimidating court personnel or witnesses. The Judge fined him $10,000, and warned that any further violations would result in more severe sanctions.

These are all additional reasons why Trump – or any of his MAGA cult – must not be allowed to hold any positions of power. They will abuse it for their own benefit, at the expense of the nation. They have no respect for the law, the Constitution, or democracy. And Trump has provided us with explicit evidence – in his own words – of the mob-like tactics he would impose were he to be reelected.

Trump’s Derangement Spirals Ever Downward as He Impotently Promises to Prove His Innocence

As Albert Einstein once said, “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.” Had he been around today he might have added the depths of Donald Trump’s derangement.

Donald Trump, coronavirus

The latest indicators of Trump’s measureless mental meltdown come via the postings on his pitifully failing social media scam, Truth Social. While the current news cycle is bursting with domestic and international crises, Trump is characteristically consumed by matters that affect only his own massive yet fragile ego.

SEE ALSO: Crybaby Trump Returns to the New York Courtroom Where He Whines that ‘This is a Rigged Trial’

On Friday morning Trump lashed out frantically at what he imagines to be a global cabal of Trump-haters conspiring to destroy him and his divinely inspired MAGA movement. He whined that…

“As I successfully fight these Political Opponent Lawsuits, all created and started by Crooked Joe Biden and his group of Radical Left Thugs […] let them keep suing me over BULLSHIT, in their hope of Election Interference, as our Country becomes disabled and dies.”

It’s curious how Trump thinks that President Biden is the mastermind of all of this thuggery despite his being – in Trump’s view – a senile commie who can’t put two sentences together. And Trump’s morose vision of America as a weak and doomed country that is disabled and dying is a unique strategy for motivating voters in the upcoming election. However, it fits in perfectly with his prior declarations of an “American Carnage,” with “blood soaked streets,” that he has gleefully thrilled his cult with.

SEE THIS: The Desperate and Dystopian Delirium of Donald Trump as He Descends Into Drooling Dementia

But Trump was just getting started. In another post he asked, “Does anyone notice that the Election Rigging Biden Administration never goes after the Riggers.” It doesn’t take much imagination to know what he really wanted to say there. Then he expressed his confidence that he would be exonerated for all of the 91 felony charges against him because

“Massive information and 100% evidence will be made available during the Corrupt Trials started by our Political Opponent.”

One might wonder why Trump hasn’t produced any of that “massive information” in any of the court proceedings he has already had and lost. He’s had three years to clear his name, but for some unexplained reason has chosen not to do so. And he’s still going to withhold that “100% evidence” for several more months until his trials begin. That’s a position he has taken before…

SEE THIS: YEAH, RIGHT! Trump Promises an ‘Irrefutable,’ ‘Completely Exonerating’ Report on Election Fraud

Trump does have good reason to be freaking out now. Two of his former attorneys, Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro, just pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges and election interference in Georgia. Ironically, of the 19 defendants in that RICO case, they are the two who requested speedy trials. Now both have opted out of going to trial entirely. And the terms of their plea deals require them to testify against their co-defendants, including Trump.

What’s more, Trump was just admonished in court for violating the order to refrain from intimidating or threatening court officials or witnesses. Sanctions for that violation could range from financial penalties to incarceration. And for someone whose psychological state has already been shaky, it’s not surprising that he is publicly wobbling more than ever. Even (satirical) Fox News has noticed…

Crybaby Trump Returns to the New York Courtroom Where He Whines that ‘This is a Rigged Trial’

The trial of Donald Trump for financial fraud in New York has already produced abundant evidence of his corruption and guilt. There has, in fact, already been a summary judgement that Trump lied in his financial reporting and in documents provided to banks, insurers, and tax officials.

Donald Trump, Snowflakes

Nevertheless, Trump keeps showing up at court despite the fact that his presence was neither requested nor needed. He sits at the defendants table with his attorneys scowling for a couple of hours, stepping outside every so often to bark at reporters. His spiel is a tediously repetitive tirade about how he is such a poor, pathetic victim of a cabal of meanies determined to destroy him.

SEE THIS: Trump On Trial: It’s a Travesty of a Sham of a Mockery of a Travesty of Two Mockeries of a Sham

On Tuesday Trump staged a new performance of this farce in the court’s hallways. And true to form, he offered nothing new to exonerate himself. To the contrary, he actually incriminated himself further. which he seems to have a habit of doing nearly every time he opens his mouth.

In this episode of his judicial soap opera, Trump repeated his monotonous mantra that “This is a rigged trial.” Because virtually every event that he disapproves of, or that reveals his wrongdoings, is the result of some insidious “rigging” by clandestine operatives aligned against him.

Trump is convinced that there cannot be any legitimate legal complaint against him because he says that “I’m the number one candidate leading the Republicans by 55, 60 points. That should be over.” However, Trump’s popularity within the Republican Party does not immunize him from any crimes he committed. Although it does say something about the moral decrepitude of the Republican Party that supports a candidate with 91 felony charges pending.

Trump’s insistence that the GOP primary “should be over,” despite the fact that not a single primary election has taken place, affirms his affinity for the sort of authoritarian dictatorship wherein he just unilaterally declares himself the winner of every contest.

Trump also utterly fails in portraying himself as the kind of strongman that generally heads up such an authoritarian regime. Strongmen do not usually whine like babies about being held down by the enemies they claim are weak and incompetent. But that’s how Trump described his current predicament outside of court today…

“My speech has been taken away from me. I’m a candidate that’s running for office and I’m not allowed to speak. This is a railroad and it’s all coming out of the Department of Justice. It’s all set up by Biden and the thugs that he’s surrounded with.”

First of all, Trump cannot assert that his speech was “taken away” from him while he is actually speaking. The restrictions that Judge Chutkan imposed are narrowly defined so as to prohibit Trump only from making intimidating comments and threats directed at court personnel and potential witnesses. He’s free to criticize the judge and any of his political opponents.

What’s more, despite having made the claim repeatedly, he still has no shred of evidence that President Biden or his administration have played any part in his prosecutions. More likely, he’s the source of his own legal problems. He keeps confessing to crimes, just as he did today, saying that…

“Just to conclude, they said I overvalued my financial statements. Well, actually the financial statements are undervalued by tremendous amounts of money.”

Okay then, Trump is admitting that he’s guilty of undervaluing his assets in order to avoid paying taxes on them. Although, there remains a great deal of evidence – and testimony from his own accountants – that he also overvalued his properties in order to get more favorable terms on loans. He keeps complaining that the judge or the Attorney General appraised Mar-a-Lago at $18 million. But the court got that figure from Trump’s own appraiser. And if Mar-a-Lago is really worth $1.5 billion, as Trump now claims, then didn’t he illegally underpay his taxes for years?

You have to wonder why Trump’s lawyers don’t impose their own gag order on him. The more he talks, the more harm he does to his own cases. And all of these comments can be used court even if Trump declines to testify. So these extra-judicial press conferences are only going to benefit the prosecution. Which by extension, will benefit the nation if it results in his conviction and incarceration.

Trump’s Truth Social Continues to Collapse as Its Biz Partner Loses Virtually All of its Funding

Donald Trump is a one man crime syndicate who currently has 91 felony counts pending in four criminal indictments. The charges against him range from paying hush money to a porn star, to falsifying business records, to unlawful possession of classified documents, to obstruction of justice, to election interference, to inciting an insurrection, and so much more.

Donald Trump Circling the Drain

This is an unprecedented display of depravity that more closely resembles the behavior of an inept mob boss than a former president. And it is more than just a legal calamity for Trump. It is an embarrassment to the Republican Party and his cohorts in Congress who still support him and his criminal conduct, and upon whom he is relying for salvation.

Consequently, it should come as no surprise that Trump’s Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, is mired in the same sort of criminal controversies that have followed Trump for decades. And now it is suffering yet another setback as it barrels toward bankruptcy. According to reports

“The funding partner for Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) said that it will return the remaining $533 million of the $1 billion raised to finance the venture after investors canceled $467 million of commitments.” […]

“The loss of funding for DWAC [Digital World Acquisition Corp.] appears to be a step backward for the prospective merger between the company and Trump’s media outfit, which runs Truth Social.” […]

“With the loss of the funding, it’s unclear how Trump’s media group, called Trump Media & Technology Group, would finance its operations after the merger. The plan was that DWAC would provide TMTG with a deep pool of funds after the merger was completed.”

TMTG’s CEO, former GOP congressman Devin Nunes, inexplicably called the fund forfeiture “an important step towards…completing our merger,” However, he didn’t bother to explain how the loss of nearly a billion dollars in financing would lead to that end, or how it would benefit shareholders.

For some background, shortly after Truth Social was launched it was tied to DWAC, a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC). The law prohibits SPACs from discussing potential acquisition targets prior to their formation. But laws have never been an impediment to grifters in Trump World. The stock immediately ran up to $175.00, which is where the now indicted investors bailed out with huge gains. The stock now sits at about $15.00.

There are good reasons for the stock’s abysmal performance. The whole enterprise is a sham that can’t grow its user base or attract advertising. Meanwhile, the reputation for illegal activity on Trump’s part has been evident in the affairs of his Truth Social disease. What follows are a just a few of the licentious legal landmarks for the illicit enterprise:

Trump Crime Syndicate: Investors Arrested for Insider Trading in Failing Truth Social Scam
Trump’s associates in his truthless, anti-social media venture were arrested and charged with insider trading. Reports indicate that “the three individuals together made more than $22 million in illegal profits.”

Trump Files Ludicrous Lawsuit Against the Washington Post for Defaming His Truth Social Scam
Trump has no basis for this suit. For one thing, he is constantly claiming that his Pravda Social is a massive success, greatly eclipsing Twitter. Also, it’s hard to defame a business that began as a fraud and went downhill from there.

Trump’s Truth Social CEO Whines that Shareholders in His Alt-Twitter Scam Are Being Wiped Out
Nunes visited Newsmax to swing open his tear ducts with mournful moaning about the catastrophic business for which he is the chief executive.

Trump Made Less than $200 on Truth Social According to His FEC Financial Disclosure
As for Trump, he was reported to own 90% of TMTG, which earned him less than $200 according to his financial disclosure. That’s hardly representative of the huge success that Trump has claimed Truth Social to be.

Trump’s ‘Truth Social’ Faces Legal and Financial Turmoil Amid Disclosures of Russian Funding
The report notes that the sources of the funding include the off-shore Paxum Bank, based in the Caribbean island nation, Dominica. It is notorious for “providing banking services for the pornography and sex worker industries, which makes it higher risk of engaging in money laundering and other illicit financing.”

Truth Social Disease: Ads on Trump’s Twitter Ripoff are Mostly Scams and Trump-Fluffing Merch
Advertisers are afraid of their ads being juxtaposed with hate speech and other noxious content. Consequently, the only advertisers who are willing to shell out are sketchy scammers, conspiracy theorists, and junk peddlers.

LOCK HIM UP: Trump’s TRUTH Social Scam is Being Criminally Investigated By a Federal Grand Jury
In addition to the Grand Jury proceedings, the SEC is investigating whether TMTG and DWAC executives improperly coordinated with each other and engaged in insider trading. They have also partnered with a Chinese firm with a dubious legal past.

As a bonus, it turns out that Trump bailed on his crooked company just weeks before subpoenas were served. He removed himself and Don Jr from the board of TMTG and is no longer named as the company’s chairman. What’s more, DWAC agreed to a settlement with the SEC that includes a finding that the company violated anti-fraud laws and will require them to pay an $18 million civil penalty when/if the deal closes. And signaling deeper problems with the SPAC’s finances, its auditor has resigned.

This is par for the course for Trump, whose businesses have a habit of failing after he and a few insiders enrich themselves before the predictable collapse. But anyone investing in a Trump enterprise shouldn’t complain when they go belly up. They should know by now that he is a scam artist who is focused solely on his welfare. And if they don’t see it, it’s because they don’t want to. That’s how cults work.

Trump Posts Video Confirming that He Illegally Bought a Gun that His Campaign Denies He Bought

It is becoming more clear every day that Donald Trump is a serial criminal who is intent on committing multiple felonies at every opportunity. He considers himself to be above the law and immune to any form of accountability.

Donald Trump illegally buys a gun.

Consequently, it should come as no surprise that Trump once again violated federal statutes in broad daylight – in fact on video – during a visit to a gun shop in South Carolina. The proprietors showed Trump a Glock handgun that had his face engraved on it. And as affirmation of his malignant narcissism, Trump immediately exclaimed that he wanted to buy it. Perhaps he would use it to shoot someone on 5th Avenue to prove his contention that his glassy-eyed cult followers would still support him.

Soon after the video of Trump’s sidearm shopping spree hit the Internet, people began pointing out that it would be illegal for Trump to buy or receive a gun due to the fact that he currently has four pending criminal indictments on 91 felony charges. That prompted Trump’s handlers in his campaign to quickly delete the video and deny that any purchase actually took place.

Okay then. Problem solved.

Well, except that on Tuesday morning Trump contributed his own commentary on the subject. And as he so often does, he just matters worse for himself by effectively confessing to the crime that his campaign spokesman had so feverishly tried to clean up. Trump re-posted a comment and video wherein he admits that he did indeed buy the gun – and is proud of it…

“MY PRESIDENT Trump just bought a Golden Glock before his rally in South Carolina after being arrested 4 TIMES in a year. LIKE A BOSS!!!”

Notice that Trump’s post was “re-truthed from Q,” a favorite source for Trump and his flock. It explicitly states that “Trump just bought a Golden Glock…after being arrested” So there is no way that Trump can pretend that he didn’t understand what the post said. He knew that there was some controversy over whether he had violated the law to buy the gun, and yet he posted this confirmation anyway. “LIKE A BOSS!!!”

The more Trump talks, the more he incriminates himself. So in the words of former President Obama, “Please proceed.”
