The principle that defines the American legal system, really American life, the principle that has kept us free, is equal justice – and the principle is rather simple. No matter what you look like, who your parents were, or what your politics might be, the law treats you exactly the same way it treats any other American. In this country, justice is blind. Now, that’s a lofty standard, but because Americans have long believed in justice and because most of the people responsible for running this system acted in good faith, this country, for the most part, has lived up to its core ideal for 250 years, making it the greatest country in the world. world, but the populist surge in 2016 changed everything.
The enduring Washington suddenly felt threatened by its constituents, by the American electorate, more than any foreign adversary. Donald TrumpTo them, it seemed more dangerous than ISIS. They panicked, and in their fear our leaders decided to turn the American legal system as well as the American intelligence agencies and, if necessary, the US military against their political opponents. They felt they had no choice. In doing so, they abandoned the old principle of equality under the law and replaced it with what was effectively an oath of allegiance. Opponents of the regime became enemies of the state. This is a big change and you are seeing the results of that change tonight.
Just 24 hours after a Manhattan grand jury indicted Joe Biden’s challenger in the upcoming presidential race, another New York jury also indicted a Republican social media influencer named Douglas McKee. What did Macy do wrong? Well, Douglas Mackie’s crime was mocking Hillary Clinton voters online. You see on your screen the meme that McKee posted on Twitter during the 2016 election. In this meme, McKee suggests that it is possible to vote for president by text message because only Hillary voters can be stupid enough to believe something so absurd, but of course In real life, no one believed it.
McKee’s insult did not change a single vote in the election and no one has proven otherwise. The government did not produce a single victim from this crime. you could not. Douglas Mackie was joking. No one believed he was a federal election official, and in fact, his social media profile picture had Donald Trump’s hat on. It was unmistakable. That was a mockery, but in the aftermath of the 2016 election and the mounting hysteria about Donald Trump, mocking the Democratic Party has become a crime. As a result tonight, Douglas Mackey faces 10 years in prison. The case against Doug McKee is the biggest attack on freedom of speech in this country in our lifetime.
It is also a useful lesson for whomever will be allowed to speak in the future. As it turns out, a woman named Christina Wong posted a nearly identical meme the same year during the 2016 election, but unlike Doug Mackey, Wong voted for Hillary Clinton. “Hi Trump supporters,” she wrote. “Skip poll lines and text in your vote.” The same crime, but the Department of Justice headed by Joe Biden has shown no interest in prosecuting Christina Wong. Do you see how this works? Do you understand our new partisan legal standards? This will be the point of the exercise. They want you to know the rules. We’ll have more on the Doug McKee case and what it means to you and America in a moment. And by the way, Douglas McKee isn’t the only Trump supporter now going to jail because of the way he voted.
According to a new report from Julie Kelly, the FBI’s counterterrorism division just arrested a grandmother in Virginia for four misdemeanors this week. What exactly did you do? She entered the Capitol with her elderly mother for 15 minutes on January 6. Didn’t destroy anything. I just stood there, however, at the same time, during the same week, none of the trans criminals who invaded the Tennessee home state yesterday were caught by the FBI’s counter-terrorism division, and of course, they won’t be. It honors them. Joe Biden just had a fleeting day of seeing.So, what we’re seeing here is unequivocally bigger than Donald Trump, but we’re going to start tonight with the latest on his case, and we’re doing it because he is — and it’s not at all incidental to his impeachment — he’s the leading Republican candidate for president.
Now, it appears Trump is not being charged with treason, insubordination, collusion, or even shoplifting, but with something much smaller: a slew of practical offenses related to a sum he apparently paid seven years ago. In any fair system, that would be an offense under the law seven years later, but the Soros-funded district attorney in Manhattan, Alvin Bragg, he compiled a Frankenstein legal theory to justify this prosecution. Under normal circumstances, that would be impossible because the statute of limitations has passed, and as if all that wasn’t third world enough, someone leaked news of Donald Trump’s grand jury indictment to the media. Now, that in and of itself is a crime under the law in New York. In fact, it is a much greater crime than the one under which Donald Trump is accused.
Will Alvin Bragg go after the leak? please. It is almost certainly someone in their own office. Nor will Bragg, as many people have pointed out today, prosecute the crimes of Hunter Biden or other Democratic partisans — those aren’t rare or hard to find. Bragg will not sue Hillary Clinton, even though she has just admitted to violating campaign finance law by paying for the fake Russia dossier. Surprisingly, none of this alerted observers to government or media abuses. No, quite the opposite. The media encourages our new standards of tribal justice.
Douglas Brinkley, CNN: The good news here, it’s our legal system that says no one is above the law.
ex rep. Elizabeth Holtzman: No one is above the law, neither Republicans nor Democrats, nor Donald Trump, no one.
Adam Kinzinger, CNN: I tend to believe that no one is above the law.
ARI MELBER, MSNBC: No person is above the law.
Andrew Weissman, MSNBC: We have political leaders who are not above the law.
MSNBC guest: We do not believe that anyone should be above the law.
Simon Sanders, MSNBC: They were all beating the same drum, if you will. Nobody is above the law.
MSNBC guest: Nobody is above the law. Today’s evidence is that this also includes Trump.
Glenn Kirshner, MSNBC: New life has been breathed into this saying, “No one is above the law.”
Let’s be completely clear. None of the people I’ve just seen care anything about justice. Let this word burn in their mouths. No, they are clearly bloodthirsty. They were chanting when I was tied around my neck in the street. “No one is above the law!” They were screaming as you writhed on the floor. They will, but as long as they still pretend that the old standards of fairness and equal application of the law apply, what happened to Sam Bankman Fried? a ticket? The biggest financial crime in history?
To this day, no one has explained or bothered trying to tell us how Sam Bankman-Fried managed to post his bail, which was set at $250 million. All that has been revealed to us, the long-suffering public, is that a former dean at Stanford and a computer scientist at Stanford put down $500,000 and $200,000, respectively, and his parents paid for their house. This leaves a huge gap. Where did the rest of the money come from? Nobody will tell us. Nobody in the media asks because nobody cares. Sam Bankman-Fried has not paid her ex-lover. No, he defrauded a million people and ran off homes in the Bahamas and yet the system protects him because he voted right.
That’s great, but it’s not the only criminal Washington refuses to prosecute. There are a lot of them. the people who destroyed the dollar for example; who degraded the United States military and turned it into a joke, which it is; those who flooded rural America with opioids and killed hundreds of thousands; The people who are currently selling our oil reserves to China. None of them were sued, in fact, they were all promoted.
We’ll have more on her in a moment, but for now, we’d like to start with her Donald Trump, the first Republican candidate to be accused of non-existent crimes midway through the presidential race. We have a very specific question about how that will affect the race because, of course, the impact on the race is the whole point.
