Her decision to partially muzzle the former president is nonsensical and arguably unconstitutional.
I'm reaching fairly far up my ass here since I know nothing helpful about the law, but a lot of lawyers and judges appear to be courting disbarment and even being charged with crimes over this bullshit. That is, if the DoJ ever becomes a semblance of what it's supposed to be and the protection everyone in this phenomenally sordid and obviously organized racket dissolves.
I don't even like Donald Trump, but that's not remotely close to the issue. But I'll be among those who votes for him even if he's dead at this rate. not that the election will count. If we even have one. But these are other lovely threads to ponder.
"The people who mobbed that Capitol were there in fealty, in loyalty, to one man — not to the Constitution, of which most of the people who come before me seem woefully ignorant;¹ not to the ideals of this country, and not to the principles of democracy. It’s a blind loyalty to one person who, by the way, remains free to this day."
This is the common drivel of a Democrat partisan hack. I debate them 24x7x365 and the "cult of Trump" meme is so old, tired and wrong that anyone mouthing it can be discounted as brainwashed in media talking points and lacking objectivity. The exact opposite of what we should demand from judge.
The friggin' insane thing is how clear it is that nutjobs repeating these phrases are in fact the cult followers.
They are the cult of anti-Trump... and they are not well... not well at all.
Exactly, whatever you might think about Trump personally, this is Banana Republic claptrap...."radical Obama hack", hell! yes!
Leftists have always known that truth is their enemy. They want to gag us all eventually. Their support of "free speech" back in the day was a lie.
Low quality people in positions of power will doom this country.
The great story of our time that you will never hear about in any MSM is that the idea of an independent, non-partisan judiciary is a fairytale. Right across the 'democratic' West, any institution not explicitly right-wing will eventually become left-wing.
Brad, I totally agree with your commentary. I am as much of an opponent of Trump in the 2024 election as anyone, and I am also an unabashed advocate for free speech as guaranteed by the 1st amendment. The gag order is excessive.
I haven’t finished reading, but the idea put forth by the judge is that Trump’s speech will necessarily result in physical violence or physical harm to individuals is telling. She really bought into ‘words are violence’, didn’t she? She should not be a judge. That alone should be disqualifying.
Lawyer here. Judges make all manner of unconstitutional orders. All the time. Sure, maybe they will be overturned at some point, but so what. There are no consequences unless politic ones, and this judge has no worries about that. Nothing new. Trump fucked up. He should have sucked it up. If it was actually stolen, ok, you have 4 years to make sure does not happen again, or at least that you can out harvest your opponent. But he's Trump. Patience is not in his skill set
Washington, DC is "“a filthy and crime-ridden embarrassment to our nation”. Everyone knows it. When the man who was president of the United States until a coup took over the nation is prevented from telling the Truth, it is time for the Supreme Court to step in. It is a 1st Amendment issue.
Is there a way to FOIA Chutkan’s emails? Might be enlightening.
My question is this? If Trump’s rights are stepped on, if all of these overstepped by the prosecution and the judge are challenged, and/or if he is found guilty by a completely partial jury, can this case be 1. Thrown out 2. Appealed? I don't know enough about this kind of law to know much about what can be done.
Leftists never seem to have a shortage of zealots in appointed positions that will always do as the Party wants.
