The Partisan Special Counsel Jack Smith Delivers an Unserious, Highly Political "Indictment" Accusing Trump of the Non-Crime of "Lies" and Praising Capitol Police as "Heroes"

This is not an indictment, this is a Jake Tapper "news" script.

He is claiming that Trump's "lies" about the election "fueled" the January 6th riots, and therefore.... Trump is criminally culpable?

That's not how this works. That's not how any of this works. It has been established and reaffirmed over a century that the only speech that can be criminalized is direct, unambiguous incitement telling people to commit a crime. And further, even if you do tell people to commit a crime (as communist and anarchist revolutionaries often do), the speech can only be criminal if there is a clear and present danger of the crimes being committed.

You cannot be charged for "incitement" for expressing your political beliefs about the outcome of an election, or else every fucking Democrat, including the cheerleaders and jock-sniffers on CNN and MSNBC, would be in prison since 2000.

But here go. Jack Smith, who got unanimously reversed on his partisan and faulty prosecution of another Republican, former Virginia governor Bob McDonald, is filing indictments he knows will not survive even the first level of review but he doesn't care, this is about the election, period.


Special Counsel Jack Smith said Tuesday that the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot was "fueled by lies" from former President Donald Trump, who he charged today with "conspiring to defraud the United States, conspiring to disenfranchise voters and conspiring and attempting to obstruct an official proceeding."

Smith made a public statement shortly after the federal indictment against Trump was unsealed Tuesday afternoon and encouraged "everyone to read it in full."

"The attack on our nation's Capitol on January 6th, 2021, was an unprecedented assault on the seat of American democracy," Smith said Tuesday. "Described in the indictment, it was fueled by lies -- lies by the defendant -- targeted at obstructing a bedrock function of the U.S. government: the nation's process of collecting, counting and certifying the results of the presidential election."

The Democrats challenged the electoral count three times in the past 20 years. These attempts to derail a "bedrock part of the democrat process" were also fueled by lies.

Are we prosecuting them too?

Or nah?

Nah, right?

Smith added, though, that the indictment "is only an allegation and that the defendant must be presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law."

The indictment names only the former president but lists six unnamed co-conspirators. Smith said the investigation into "other individuals continues in this case."

Smith said the "men and women of law enforcement who defended the U.S. Capitol on January 6th are heroes."

This kind of political posturing and moral grandstanding is unbecoming and unprofessional for a "prosecutor." This is not an indictment, it's political rhetoric. I think there's a strong chance that this attempt to poison the voter pool with rhetoric designed to "incite" people to convict not based on the law but on passion will be mentioned in the order to quash these indictments.


"They are patriots, and they are the very best of us. They did not just defend a building or the people sheltering in it," Smith said. "They put their lives on the line to defend who we are as a country and as a people. They defended the very institutions and principles that defined the United States."

Smith said that "since the attack on our Capitol, the Department of Justice has remained committed to ensuring accountability for those criminally responsible for what happened that day."

Oh, just to really please Jake Tapper, Smith's brazenly political "indictment" includes charges potentially punishable... by the death penalty.

Special Counsel Jack Smith's indictment Tuesday against former President Donald Trump for his role in attempting to challenge the results of the 2020 presidential election includes several weighty felonies, including one for which death may be a penalty.

18 U.S.C § 241, "Conspiracy Against Rights," includes a penalty of up to 10 years in federal prison. But it adds that if death results from the actions covered under this provision, the offender may be executed:


If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or

If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured--

They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

One person -- Ashli Babbitt, a rioter shot by a law enforcement officer -- died as a result of the Capitol riot on January 6, which Smith said Tuesday was the result of Trump's claims about the election. But Democrats have blamed Trump for the unrelated deaths of several protesters and Capitol Police officers.

Americans cannot and should not obey, respect, or abide a corrupt Regime that criminalizes any attempt to bring to light the corruption of The Regime.

That is tyranny, and Americans do not abide tyrants.

46 I'm going to repeat my list to stimulate other's contributions

There is a lot you can do against Leviathan without even sticking your neck out. Some thoughts in no particular order:

1. Stop buying stuff
2. Do only what the government directly compels you to do. Do not voluntarily cooperate Do not volunteer information.
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 Remember that if the FBI is testifying, it's most likely a frame-up.
8. Discriminate in all your private dealings, without openly saying so. Never miss an opportunity to quietly do a Commie dirty.

Posted by: G'rump928(c) at August 02, 2023 12:08 PM (aD39U)

47
9. If you see a CoC sticker on a business, go elsewhere
10. Vote against all tax levies, particularly school levies
11. Always ask your contractors if they use Latin American labor. If they say yes say sorry, if they say no, check out the workers yourself and if Latin, send them away.
12. 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 poor returns.

They need us more than we need them.

This is why the credit downgrade got such a furious reaction from Yellen. Much like Hollywood depending on investors not knowing how bad their streaming viewership is, the entire economic system is dependent on everyone thinking that everything is hunkydory when everything is actually about debt and money printing that is effectively hidden from the average person (including suckers playing the stock market).

If the United States ever had to pay interest on its debt anywhere commensurate with its actual credit risk (think Argentina or Greece), the whole house of cards would fall very quickly. Suddenly money would dry up for everything from Blackrock ESG to non-stop aid to Ukraine. The regime would fall almost immediately. How would it survive without the ability of its allies in "non-profits" to pay "peaceful protestors" and to funnel money to badly run universities and solar panel companies?

For at least a decade now, for me. There is no honor in law, and no honor or righteousness in observing it. Merely consequences for not doing so. It's also impossible to do so. Everyone is guilty of numerous things at any given time. The law was made that way on purpose.

It's one of many reasons I do not refer to myself as "a law-abiding citizen." For one thing, *nobody* is and for another, being "law-abiding" is not some indicator that you're good or doing the right thing.

I go with "peaceable citizen" now.

Suddenly money would dry up for everything from Blackrock ESG to non-stop aid to Ukraine. The regime would fall almost immediately.

As bad as Poopy Pants and his fellow criminals are, and they are incredibly bad, what's worse is the people that vote for and support him.

And what's worse than them is the people on our side (supposedly) that will sit down to dinner with those scum-sucking slime and discuss the weather or sports like they're normal human beings.

I won't tolerate them in my home, I won't go to their homes, I do not interact with them, I won't have a drink with them. I won't even talk to them. They can say 'Hello' and I am likely to tell to tell them to go to hell.

If my child was one of them, I would shun him or her. It all starts at home. And if your Wife/Husbands doesn't like it, they can hit the road.

That can only happen if 'small is beautiful' takes hold with perhaps radical federalism decentralization.

Much like Hollywood depending on investors not knowing how bad their streaming viewership is, the entire economic system is dependent on everyone thinking that everything is hunkydory when everything is actually about debt and money printing that is effectively hidden from the average person (including suckers playing the stock market).

If the United States ever had to pay interest on its debt anywhere commensurate with its actual credit risk (think Argentina or Greece), the whole house of cards would fall very quickly.

Fairly few people. As it stands now, if you have any money and want a low-risk return on it, you have two choices: bank products (savings accounts, CDs, etc.) and US treasury securities. The Treasury pays better.

But ultimately, they're the same thing. If the government defaults on Treasuries, they will default on FDIC obligations when the banks go pear-shaped. It's all over at that point.

Physical assets help. Physical cash will also be useful. Damn few will be left with anything at all.

Fairly few people. As it stands now, if you have any money and want a low-risk return on it, you have two choices: bank products (savings accounts, CDs, etc.) and US treasury securities. The Treasury pays better.

But ultimately, they're the same thing. If the government defaults on Treasuries, they will default on FDIC obligations when the banks go pear-shaped. It's all over at that point.

Physical assets help. Physical cash will also be useful. Damn few will be left with anything at all.

169 Jack Smith is guilty of criminal interference with a public proceeding; the primary and generalelection. His press conference yesterday was the confession.

He is involved in a criminal conspiracy to deny the American public a free, fair and honest election.

He is intentionally and criminally tampering with the primary process by committing the courts to illegally charge Trump for speech protected under the 1st Amendment.

He is criminally conspiring to deny Americans their civil rights under sec. 1983 by denying them their choice of candidates and their vote.

Every grand juror who voted for these charges is a criminal co-conspirator.
The judge, when she accepts these charges, is also a criminal co-conspirator.
Any juror who votes to convict is a criminal co-conspirator.

Patriots made up 25-30% of people in the 13 Colonies. Yet (in a way Lenin would admire) they enforced their views on other colonists. The average person is a Normie slug. They move in the path of least resistance. If your political activism consists only of whining online, they will continue to virtue-signal about "protecting trans kids" or whatever the current left-wing thing is. If you turn such behavior into the ideological equivalent of having leprosy, they will post other things on their social media.

Honestly, the Tolkienesque love of decay and decline that infects anglophone "Conservatism" is a plague on the right-wing. It's too pleasurable for some people to see themselves as "the last true Roman" or "the last riders of Rohan" rather than doing something productive.

Predicting these sort of things is tricky like an avalanche. We will be having a fiscal collapse and reset but that does not always trigger regime collapse. We most likely will lose a war to a major power either China or Russia in the future, but some regimes stagger on if the loss was not that costly (see Russo Japanese war in 1900's). It could be triggered by an assassination, an arrest, a cheated election, or some stupid crackdown law on the plebes to show muh power of the central government.

Give her a wall-hat or set of glove-shoes.

From an old radio interview with classic era Van Halen. DLR was talking about his two new inventions. The wall-hat was a motorcycle helmet that had the head of a plunger glued to the top. You bend her over and push the plunger against the wall to keep her in place. Glove-shoes had glove fingertips sewn to the top of the shoes. Pretty self-explanatory.

289 Who do you think is now buying all the Treasury debt now?
Boomer Retirees, converting their risky stock funds to safe T-bills.

I would not think buying Treasury debt is really safe.
At least with equities, the hyperinflation to come will also hyperinflate the equity price. With debt, your dollar shrinks to nothing.

I tend to agree with the Bob Brinker philosophy of having a 50-50 asset allocation split of equity/ fixed income. Generally agree.

Although, I personally am probably 70-30, heavy on the equity.

Resulting in the death of Ashli Babbitt.

Well, the shithole cop who shot her is mostly responsible for that, but she never would have gotten into the building if there had been more security. I dare say, had Capitol Police not encouraged and cooperated with people entering the building that day, Ashli would be alive.

Women make up something like 70% of college graduates now. Companies have dozens of women only scholarships, internships, etc. Companies set aside a large portion of management and senior technical positions specifically for women. Etc, etc, etc.

What, the fuck, more do they expect? If women aren't succeeding in tech it's not because of fucking barriers.

383 333 I am amazed FJS did not indict Trump for inciting an insurrection on January 6th. (So far.) He didn't believe he could easily get a DC judge and jury to railroad Trump for that? Election year politics must be a factor in the calculations of the Junta and the DNC. The DNC-run focus groups must not have been in favor for some reason(s).

You have to demonstrate intent and that is pretty hard to construe Trump's public statements for that along with other protected political speech. There is a reason that the state likes process crimes and possession crimes--no need to prove intent.

That being said, the indictments are essentially bullshit like everything that the state prosecutors and Jack Smith issue or that horrendous NY libel/slander decision that denying an unproven crime happened is the same as defaming the person who made the totally unsubstantiated claim under a special law passed to allow such bullshit.

No, you don't ASK the head of the CIA to do anything. The head of the CIA tells you what he's going to do, and you can go through whatever pomp and ceremony you want to make it look like you're in charge. But you're not.

Huh, and here I thought that the drug laws mainly exist because criminals and drugs are most often found together. Cop sees a back seat filled with stolen car radios and a bag meth. Persecutors are absolutely worthless in proving that the radios are stolen rather than inventory of a radio repair business, but simple possession of the drugs is clear and unambiguous.

Dittos with stopping people for expired plates/inspections rather than speeding. Don't have to argue about calibrations, proper use, training. Sticker is a no-show for the cop at the court.

Notice there is nothing about religious freedom?
Notice there is nothing about the border?

Yep, let;sjust keep talking abut how unfair it is that Trump has been indicted multiple times. New York is again getting ready to not only indict Trump but his organization and his kids.
This will keep anyone else who might be able to save the country off the ballot.
