There Is No Law In America; Why Should We Be The Only Ones to Pretend There Is?

Related: Lou Dobbs asked yesterday, where are the indictments against known Deep State felons?"

Let me add: if there is no law for the liberal Ruling Class, there is no law for me, either.

"Where the hell is the [Durham] report? Where the hell are the indictments? Where the hell are the charges against the politically corrupt Deep State within the Justice Department, the FBI, and why in the hell aren’t we hearing apologies from someone in that rancid, corrupt, department about what they permitted?" he asked.

Here's a semi-related thread from John Hayward:


John Hayward
@Doc_0

This "rule of law" talking point is the most absurd example of NeverTrump and Democrat desperation yet. It's the nook-nook they're sucking on to get themselves past the disappointment of Impeachment Theater not only fizzling, but backfiring spectacularly.

By any objective standard, Trump is far less of a threat to the "rule of law" than Barack Obama was. In fact, the big reason the anti-Trump circus is squawking about "rule of law" right now is they remember how concerned conservatives were about it during the Obama years.

Obama's entire agenda was an all-out attack on the rule of law. When Obamacare crashed and burned, he was out there giving speeches where he told people to just ignore the broken law and promised not to prosecute them for it.

If anything, Trump is clearly the target of people who disdain the rule of law, using laws and administrative procedures to sabotage his administration. The proverbial Crazy Hawaiian Judge is the real threat to rule of law, not Trump. Abusive injunctions are a threat.

And Trump is clearly on the right side of the biggest single Rule of Law issue there is: immigration, citizenship, sanctuary cities, border defense. The Dems, ALL OF THEM, are sworn enemies of the rule of law and openly promise to undermine it as vigorously as possible.

Trump is also on the right side of the second biggest Rule of Law issues, free speech and gun rights. The enemies of those things are the ones declaring open war on the rule of law. The 1st and 2nd Amendment are inextricably linked in defining what the law means and how it rules.

And Trump spent most of his first term under attack by one of the worst abuses of the Rule of Law this nation has ever seen, the Russia collusion hoax and its attendant abuses of the FBI, FISA, etc.

No one willing to give "the Resistance" and Obama a pass on the Russia hoax can be taken seriously when they talk about the Rule of Law. They're just tossing around loaded political terms without any commitment to what those terms actually mean.

Worse, they're perverting the Rule of Law to mean "the rule of the permanent administrative state." The Rule of Law is meaningless, indeed inverted from its true meaning, if there are no laws to bind the administrative state, no accountability, no consequences.

Argue the merits of Trump's policies all you want, but let's stop this charade that he's some kind of unique existential threat to the Rule of Law. Every Dem running in 2020 is vastly more of a threat than Trump on his worst day. /end

=========

That's the rub.

The left and the uniparty has built their power around the administrative state and the courts over decades.

Undermining that power is attacking their very ability to make policy in their favor.

This is purely a power struggle versus the constitutionally elected choice of the people and the un-democratic administrative state.

I've chosen a side.

18 LOLGF (to us) on McCabe, who now gets off free as a bird? Does this DOJ mean that Durham also isn't going to prosecute him? Anyone know?

I read this as yet another confirmation of the deep tentacles of the corrupt Dem/DeepState DOJ. With the Roger Stone issues this week + Liu resignation, the DOJ insiders quickly move to completely absolve McCabe. That is, the DOJ insiders are saying F--K YOU to Barr, Trump and 1/2 of the nation in response to this weeks' events.

So, our official law enforcement & justice functions are incapable of holding Dem partisan insiders to account for criminality related directly to the Democratic process itself. LoL, I guess.

I won't hold it against anyone who now concludes that the social contract is broken, and we're now in the post-legal and post-justice era.

At this point I really don't understand what Barr/Durham are doing.


What exactly are they investigating?


Barr's DOJ is knocking everything down, all of this is based on IG reports and what ever ancillary investigations went into the IG reports.


There is simply no other investigation avenue for them.


So they are simply spinning their wheels and running out the clock.

110 Admittedly, I was under the impression that McCabe would simply have his charges tacked on to whatever Durham finds. But that's just a supposition based on the evidence coming out: in reality, no official has taken the MANY crimes against Democrats seriously. Why should Durham? Undercover Huber has more value than his namesake did.

But then, discretion like this makes Rule of Law into such a joke that only faggoty cucks believe it. And it increases social pressure among real Americans, until they're open to solutions that will REALLY get this problem fixed. (Burn the Hamptons, Helicopter Rides, etc). If Trump doesn't land convictions against his enemies, he can either apologize to the Dems or go all out against the entire corrupt American elite. No one would be fooled by half measures.

I'm rather convinced that the Deep State understands that and is counting on it. Because when enough vigilante justice is exercised, they're planning on using that as an excuse to settle business with the unpeople.

Whether it goes the way they expect it to, however... I haven't the slightest idea.

What should really warm various Deep State hearts is the degree to which the institutional DS is willing to sacrifice DS operatives to the vigilante justice that might be coming.

I was never one who believed that the Feds would be arresting their buddies or their political bosses. I do not believe it's going to happen. We were sold the Durham bill of goods when it came to Huber, and that came to a hideous conclusion. I had someone I don't see here anymore, call me all sorts of names, question my intellect and mental status and use all sorts of profanity when I stated that there was nothing in Sessions' or Huber's history to make me believe that McCabe, Comey, etc would be prosecuted.

I don't see anything in Barr or Durham to inspire me with confidence that they will take on the "bad guys". Just as in the case of Hillary, I expect all of this to be swept away as a political difference of opinion.

Dr. No...I just can't quite get into it.

Reading reviews, everyone praises it endlessly, but only as the beginning of a franchise with most of the pieces in place.

The mystery that the movie hinges on is solved within twenty minutes, and we have to go along with Bond continuing to figure it out until he finally meets Dr. No at the end of the film. It has its moments, but I don't think it really succeeds.

==========

Dr. No...I just can't quite get into it.

Reading reviews, everyone praises it endlessly, but only as the beginning of a franchise with most of the pieces in place.

The mystery that the movie hinges on is solved within twenty minutes, and we have to go along with Bond continuing to figure it out until he finally meets Dr. No at the end of the film. It has its moments, but I don't think it really succeeds.
Posted by: TheJamesMadison, 003 with a License to Kill at February 14, 2020 02:29 PM (q80AH)

It works as a Bond film, meaning to set a tone and template. It's more of a Mileu or character piece rather than a plot-driven film.

We get the exotic Carribean location, a dashing and fearless hero, pretty girls, ruthless killings. It's pure Plup pleasure.

I won't say it's the strongest entry, but...Ursula....Ursula coming up from the sea. That's a revelation moment.

Thanks for keeping us safe. Thanks for bringing us home. Thanks for being kind. Thank you for the ride to school. Thank you for the clean bus ride you give me. Thanks for being so responsible

It might be worth seeing how this plays out before getting to excited one way or the other. All things considered this is a pretty minor aspect of the totality of things McCabe is being investigated for and is not related to Durham. I want McCabe charged with more serious offenses than a process charge to the FBI.

Given that Barr just appointed an outside prosecutor to review the Flynn case it sounds as if he thinks there were problems with the case. Like he never should have been charged problems.

I've said it before and I'll say it again my goal is not for Team US to be as scummy as Comey, McCabe et al. I want a return to the rule of law, one law for everyone.

And given how many times I've already been right and you have been wrong you are way in the hole on the sandwich front.

He and his advisers are still working on the assumption that the whole apparatus of law can be divorced from politics. But the left has devastated that assumption. The law is now just politics by other means, just like Stalin's prosecutors. So yes, rule of law is gone and I say again, if you apply it to me but not to you, how do you expect me to react?

299 Well typically you get a civil war at some point. The particular variation we seem to be looking at is "decline of central authority". As the various parts of the country start to increasingly disregard the federal government, you eventually get a crisis or flashpoint where the federal government demonstrates its impotence. From there things begin to proceed rapidly.

How much more of a history lesson do you want?

Not just *any* ammunition though.

Along with your regular stuff, be sure to lay-in an adequate supply of Sub Sonic ammo in all of the regular handgun calibers you might own.

And if you've something like a .300 Blackout upper, yeah, for that, too.

Sub Sonic, while not as effective as a true suppressor, goes a long way towards subtlety in social interactions.

305 In the dark days of the Obama tribulation, I posted a few things that you can do to "Fight the Power", perhaps they can be reviewed again because, They need us much more than we need them.

1 Stop buying stuff
2 Do only what the government directly compels you to do.
3 Pay in cash with a winkwink
4 Cheat the government whenever possible
5 Steal all your entertainment
6 If you know of tax cheating, keep your mouth shut
7 If called to jury, refuse to convict if you think the law unjust
8 Discriminate in all your private dealings, without openly saying so
9 If you see a CoC sticker on a business, go elsewhere
10 Vote against all tax levies, particularly school levies
11 Buy firearms and ammo. It's not simply a just-in-case, it's a good financial investment of small sums when savings are yielding 1/4 of a percent.

Posted by: csmats at February 14, 2020 02:41 PM (X5VFN)

Perhaps. I think that was a longer-term play, to justify them taking no action or deliberately losing the case post-Durham due to his "interference."

I suspect this is just a secondary effect. The real effects will be after Durham, when the state prosecutes some small number of the people involved with deliberate incompetence and then claimed they were stymied by the president's loose tongue.

The Civil War was a "political factions divide the country" incident, like the Spanish civil war or British civil war, so not something that necessarily had to happen.

Decline of the central government is more of an inevitable lead up to civil war. Because the country is divided on ideological lines we might have some elements of both, particularly in the form of early large coalitions.

378 Ah yes, finally, others are realizing what I've said for years - the Legitimate Avenues of Consequence are closing to us. That will only leave the "illegitimate" ones.

I have abandoned good and evil. That's for my eventual discussion with St. Peter. What I am concerned with is, I want in on what you got. No hard feelings Hillary, all's forgiven. Just let ME transact classified State Dept. bidness on unsecured private email servers and we're all good. Oh, what's that, I can't? Cause I'm not a Clinton, or a woman or a Democrat? Ah, sorry, that doesn't work for me.

1) Jury nullify each and every case brought by the DOJ. They have lost all credibility. If they won't house clean down to the janitor and prosecute the guilty, then ALL GO FREE until they do. The threat of Federal charges will wilt when people know that no jury will convict.

2) If you, lowly serf, were charged by the Feds, they would drop 100+ charges upon you, even if you arguably could only be convicted of 1 or 2, so as to get you to plead to 5 or 6 of them. The threat of financial ruin will force that, as the Feds have all the tax dollars in the world. In light of that, there is no reason to "decline to prosecute" McCabe or Comey, etc. for ANYTHING. Simply throw it on the pile of charges that Barr and the DOJ will drop in #two weeks, yes?

3) Barr's little snipe yesterday would carry more weight if he were in the middle of perp walking people into cells. Right now, he's walking them to CNN anchor desks. So at this point, Trump's tweets only highlight BARR's failure at whipping his subordinates in line.

Fairness does exist. As does unfairness. As in all things, it takes human volition to achieve either. Everyone in power is all-in on the latter, not the former. Fairness exists, it is just not pursued by anyone.

And as for the last part, yes. There are crimes and there are laws. They are not the same thing. Theft, fraud, unprovoked or non-defensive violence - these things are crimes. Selling an apple without the correct permits - those things are merely laws.

I no longer care about the law. I care much about crime and will not commit crime, but the law? What law?

Indeed. Catch me.

No. Not even a little bit.

Avenatti is a piece of shit - a public and proud sleazy turd. But he is a *private* piece of shit. He's a crook. He defrauded his clients. He tried to shake down a big company. He surfaced ridiculous fake accusers. All of that, though, was unofficial. He is private and he was prosecuted for his private crimes.

The official crooks, the official pieces of shit, are different. They're official. They are both agents and tools of the state. They remain untouched.

There is no equivalence between these groups.

449 Trump has been fighting to stay in office since he got there. He did not know who he could trust. He was betrayed by as many of those he hired as he was supported by. He has Hawaiian judges, congress, and impeachment. He has not been in a position to have the confidence in his team that he needs to counter and root out the coup plotters.

He and his team have authority but are likely a minority by far in the government. It is going to take time for them to figure out how to proceed with the investigation.

This not so much an investigation as it is rolling up a spy net in ww2.

I do not know how long it is going to take. I do not know if we are getting played.

However, I am confident that if they are doing things the right way then it is going to take a goodly amount of time.
And, if we are doing it in a way that is going to matter and make the traitors suffer it is going to take time.

This is going to be something that relies upon traitors ratting each other out.

Of course not. But there was a lot of anger when Cohen was indicted and I agree, this is an equivalent step. And it does indicated that hard core Democrat operatives are not always given a free pass by the DOJ.

Not saying I know, just saying that we have seen the DoJ lawyers do things such as this for public political reasons.

If the head of the office does this without Barr's knowledge it creates headaches for Barr in lots of ways.

The news is a few hours old. Maybe more unfolds.

We can't prosecute the protected class; end wars; eliminate unconstitutional IC searches; get rid of personnel breaking agency policies; end leaks; remove Obama's proteges in office; make bureaucrats follow the law; remove insubordinate military folks from the NSC; and so on.

By the Constitution, President Trump is the head of the executive branch and Wray and Barr are mere subordinates by legislation from Congress, their minions rate no mention in the Constitution at all.

What we have essentially adopted are secret amendments where the text does not fit the circumstances of today. Thus, equal protection of the laws is a mockery and the rule of law is dependent on being from the political class which is part of our new aristocracy.

So they sit on their asses until a Presidential general election and ignore local and state races. But when Democrats acted like CoonMen Democrats, suddenly they pick up their never-fired Wilson Combat AR and head down to Richmond in tac vests and 5-11 cargo pants.

So any criminal charges against McCabe will have to be from another theory of criminality.

558 DocJ, now watch it, soon others will be telling us to "get a room".

But on the topic, I'm not criticizing or denouncing what I think to be the bulk of the populace that isn't anywhere close to rising up. Well not exactly. Just trying to describe it.

Not really a county in many ways. Outrageous, indefensible nonsense occurs (O-care, sanctuary) that has tremendous practical consequences for millions.

There is no press, so, crickets there.

But beyond that, there's very little. 2010 was a revolt. Impressive. But it fizzled/was co-opted/fell to truly amazing amounts of bad-faith and small (character) elected leaders.

Millions were devastated by O-care (an out-of-the blue outrage that destroyed the finances of millions of households and small businesses), but it's as though it never happened ("didn't affect me much").

Sanctuary produces bodies, rape and molestation and assault victims *every day of the week*. Surveys show - surprise! - it's wildly unpopular. So? Not a single congressional primary or general election has turned on the issue. A president who owes his existence to the set of issues of which it's a big part has been unable/unwilling to do almost anything about it.

Francis Bacon said "prosperity doth best discover vice". In this case, the success (material, overall) of American society understandably has produced a set of frogs who are particularly slow to react to that warming water.

We were looking at a SCOTUS potentially going Left for however many decades. We were still stuck in various shitholes around the globe with no end in sight. The economy sucked. The border was wide open with catch and release the law of the land. Addressing shitty trade deals via economic warfare was off limits. Nobody had even identified the Deep State let alone got around to choke slamming it.

Can we please enjoy our winning?

So how much has been rolled back that once the democrats get back in charge, because they will, isn't going to be not only reimplemented but doubled down on so hard. And then once Republicans get back in power won't do a god damned thing to roll back?

Posted by: CN at February 14, 2020 03:13 PM (ONvIw)

--------

It would appear so. I wasn't really sure about him. I have been saying that any possible prosecution of that particular fuckstick would hinge on how well the DoJ and IC had siloed him.

Was he intimately involved in planning? Can he implicate any intelligence chieftains? If yes, he's not possible to prosecute.

Or, was he a button-man who was kept at arm's length in anticipation of a possible need for a patsy? If yes, then prosecution is conceivable, if not probable.

I suppose that question's not answered now, but it seems to point toward #1.

It's easy to forget, but in the early stages of the coup McCabe was acting FBI director. He IS the big fish, even if not the largest. This speaks for itself. The bottom line is, even than nothing happening, those involved in the coup will be richly rewarded and those who support Trump will be oppressed.

But that's just it: if this is such a shocking and horrible atrocity we all should spit on the Astros for, call for them to lose their world series title, and have pitchers "drill" their batters at the plate over, for people to lose their jobs over, etc...

... why isn't EVERY team being nailed? You are almost certainly right that other teams did it. That's why I get annoyed at the Astros hate. Not because I think it was okay and love the Astros, but because it hypocritical bullcrap for other guys in baseball to act like they never did anything.

Welp.

I suppose we're going to have to depend on the Epstein Clarity Test-

to see if this is all part of some grand prosecution of bigger fish or just a big ole circle jerk.

If McCabe "commits suicide", then we can be sure that he was a danger to the Deep State and Clinton/Obama.

If McCabe prances around in a bright pink jockstrap and a propeller beanie in front of the White House, slapping his ass and snapping his fingers to "Relax" by Frankie Gioes to Hollywood,

then we can be sure that this there is no equal justice and that America is stone-cold dead.

McCabe was nothing, just another mewling bureacrat, a footsoldier in the army of the corrupt. He's out of office and although we want vengeance, what happens to him means little in the big picture. Now Brennan, that's a big fish.

And nobody her has been watching the Avenatti trial this week except me, I think. I felt that when he refused to testify in his own defense, it was going to go badly for him. And this was just the warmup trial, the BIG trial starts in May.

Avenatti, at least, is going to spend the rest of his life in Federal Prison.

Grand juries--which DiGenova and and his wife have been Yelling about and begging for-- are the only federal reality that is worth taking notice of.
They--the internal masters at the DOJ-- are rationalizing federal crime as mistakes.
There is no honest effort at presenting the facts to a Grand Jury...except for that Super Secret Durham Thingy.

But they got caught. You can't overlook that. It's just like Brady and the Patriots with deflate-gate. Everyone knows that every single starting QB in the NFL tweaks the footballs the way THEY want them. But someone squealed on Tom Terrific and they got caught.

It would run counter to all commonsense suggested by the pace and
development of the specific events leading up to this point. But it

government, and corruption, and crime, and criminal organizations.

I have no faith in any system. I have in some people. I trust Trump and I trust Barr. The idea that Barr is some deep state plant seems like a pretty big stretch.

If he is part of the deep state then why did he appoint Durham? Why did he go against Mueller on all 10 potential obstruction charges? Why did he just appoint another outside of DC prosecutor to review the Flynn case? Why did he step in to reduce the Stone charges and create turmoil at the DOJ to the point where many Dems are calling for him to resign or be impeached?

This is just one charge and a fairly minor one. We have a long way to go and if history is any guide there are a lot more twists and turns to come.

741 558, Rhomboid, bad economic times are not a prerequisite for civil war or revolution. For example, the 1850's were good economically and the end of the French and Indian War was also quite good economically in the colonies.

There is a common myth, probably because of the French Revolution, that revolts occur over sheer deprivation--then we see places such as N. Korea, Venezuela, etc. of ultimate deprivation and little evidence of revolt.

What is critical is that the ruling classes of society are thoroughly discredited so that the common people are no longer willing to support their rule.

The split in the Democrat party occurred because the Southern Dems believed that the N. Dems were not sufficiently favorable toward slavery and its spread which probably cost the Stephen Douglas the presidency (or some other Dem. nominee). The split occurred, in part, because Dred Scott more or less killed S. Douglass's popular sovereignty compromise.

In the American Revolution, the Boston Massacre and Tea Party coupled with the British punishment of Mass when coupled with Gov. Dunmore's actions in VA, pretty much persuaded the colonial elites who were being locked out of the ruling class by the Brits to support independence. British rule by stupid administrators and Parliament discredited the ruling class in England for Americans which is why Dickinson lost the fight on Independency in Congress.

WWI killed the support for the Czar by the sheer incompetence of the generals and his civil administration.

And so on. An economic collapse alone does not do the trick--what appears to be universal is that the ruling class is discredited and the general population fears more degradation either through incompetence or malice from the ruling class. Alternatives seem to also add fuel to the fire--e.g. existing regional governments or existing "nations" in the demographic but not governing sense.

Class based fights can also occur such as the French and Russian revolutions where the nobility were despised for their wealth and oppression of the peasants and serfs. Add dissatisfied urban mobs, and the torch is lit.

Of course it's true and of course McCabe is a criminal, but my wish casting theories about how justice is coming and presenting my desire as fact will not make Barr, Huber, Sessions, Rosenstein and their ilk into honest men. My high hopes do not translate into prosecutions, nor do anyone else's. Some people write about the inevitability of justice because they believe in Justice and that it is good and right. This does not make Barr "good and right" any more than it made Huber pursue Hillary.

I do not know what they are getting, but I o know they don't give a fuck about how it appears to our side. The left will present it as a "debunking" of yet another conspiracy theory. I mean if Barr actually had evidence, he'd have prosecuted.

745 732, Jackstraw,
Barr could simply be an institutionalist and Trump wanted the Mueller investigation gone. Thus, Barr ends Mueller's charade and Barr then mumbles and pretends an investigation into the wrongdoing by going through the motions to clean up the Deep State.

Barr could end a lot of this by simply declassifying material and letting the chips fall where they may. But that would more or less destroy the DOJ and FBI as institutions for the foreseeable future.

I see him as trying to protect the institutions and their powers while delivering a mild rebuke to the Deep State for pushing things too far. He is grey, not a villain, but not a hero either.

The good character or truthfulness of FBI witnesses or the accuracy of their 302 on material points will not be presumed. There is no rule granting such a presumption. The State will need to introduce evidence in support of that premise. If the State fails to do that, the State has not proven its case beyond a reasonable doubt and the defendant will be acquitted.

Through a myriad of procedures, protocols, policies, guidelines, regulations, rules, laws, judicial doctrines, traditions, customs and habits, it appears designed to protect all its members against accountability. McCabe, Comey, Strzok, Page, Mueller, Weissmann, Ohr, Carlin, Clinesmith, Rosenstein, Rybicki, Baker, Yates, Lynch -- the list goes on and on and on -- all took advantage of that protective web to rig an election and engineer a coup d'etat. And those who remain behind, whether good or bad or indifferent, are completely unwilling to cut through the web and hold these malefactors accountable.
