Yates would have been great. I think the problem, however, was the Dems didn't have a big enough majority to guarantee she'd be voted in. Too many Republican senators were scared of their crimes being revealed, so Biden had to pick the closest to a surest thing so indictments could start as soon as possible. (which of course didn't happen anyway).

Check out Sarah Kendzior's thread on Merrick Garland... some pretty disturbing stuff.

Some hightlights:

"Let's review what Garland has done as AG:

1) Defended Trump in a personal lawsuit against E Jean Carroll, a woman who Trump raped

2) Defended Trump and Barr when they ordered the beating and gassing of protesters in Lafayette Square

3) Covered up Barr’s obstruction of the Mueller probe and refused to release the full OLC memo that Barr used as a pretext for his lies

4) Defended DOJ's spying on Washington Post, CNN, and other media outlets for Trump

5) Defended Don McGahn against congressional Dems' subpoenas. This is ominous as it speaks to the current subpoena crisis

6) Refuses to prosecute any of the high level 1/6 operatives

7) Appealed ruling Dems won seeking to expose corruption at Trump Hotel

8) Refused to follow up on a House investigation of Bill Barr and Wilbur Ross

9) Wants to implement a 50 year delay on when courts can consider releasing materials from federal grand juries. This would mean we won't get Trump admin court docs until 2069.

He is a plant…a stooge. We need to “retire” Biden asap.

Yet, Garland can’t bother to investigate and indict a former President and his top cronies for attempting a coup d’etat whereby there were casualties, numerous injuries, destruction, threats, and attempting to physically disrupt a constitutionally defined electoral process in Congress.

[quote]At a Texas Republican convention, John Cornyn gets booed for supporting watered down gun control legislation

[quote]

It doesn't matter. I already read an article this very early this morning or maybe last night that Cornyn had already said he was practically done because he wasn't getting anywhere with the democrats. He had a problem with the "boyfriend laws". It would take away guns from someone who is just dating someone. I realize why the democrats want that, but they really should have gone forward without it.

It was their only chance to pass anything. They don't seem to understand that even a watered down bill is better than nothing. There will never be another chance for about 30 years or more.

I’m stealing this thread from One-term Biden thread.

I also wonder why we never got to see the un-redacted version of the Meuller Report?

Another cover-up? Seems a lot of those in Gorelick’s orbit can get away with with anything. I wonder why?

I’m betting that if she her tentacles around Biden and Gorelick, that Trumpey’s going to walk away from it all and we will forget all about it. I won’t, so we need to work and get away from these treasonous whores.

After watching that Biden/Kimmel interview, I’ve done some reasearch and learned a few enlightening and revelatory things. Yes, we that Biden and Merrick Garland are “Insttutionalists”, however I found the oddest link between Merrick Garland and corporate lawyer, Jamie Gorsuch.

If you dig a little deeper, you’ll find that Gorelick is Jared Kushner’s personal lawyer. Like Kushner, Garland’s friendship with Gorelick goes back decades and he has the utmost respect for her. Yet, her name is imbedded into every scandal and cover-up beginning from 9-11. Her skill set seems to involve high-level corruption in our federal government.

Who is she exactly and could she have an influence on Merrick Garland’s passive approach to funding out the clock for Trump et al.

Help me out, DLs.

Because Biden is a week old fool. He or his supreme fuck up of a son probably have something to hide. If he wanted trump prosecuted, he'd have already been charged.

9/11 was the same way. They had the hearings and nothing happened. Those hearings were the first time I had ever heard of Gorelik (sp?). Why would she take on kushner for a client? can't she get any other clients? There is more too that. And a few of Obama's former advisors are starting to bash Biden lately. There's more to this.

R154 Notice that all 4 serious presidential crimes mentioned occurred under Republican presidents. The only Democrat with any legal concern was Bill Clinton, which was for lying about a blow-job.

When does the escalation stop? If Trump gets away with his crimes, which were the most serious over them all, and he either challenges a future election or conducts a successful coup, then US democracy is basically over. It will be too late then because those who did not have the courage to bring those who commit crimes to justice.

Regardless of what some talking heads said about Ford pardoning Nixon was good for the country, it was not. By any means. It very likely gave permission for future crimes to be conducted by subsequent presidents. I was beyond furious when the Kennedy Profile in Courage Award was given to Gerard Ford in 2001. To me that completely invalidated the significance of the award itself.

As much as I revered him as President, in retrospect, Obama fucked up. Trying too hard to come off non-partisan, he played everything way too safe and blew what could have been some great opportunities. After everything Mitch McConnell said and did throughout his presidency, Obama should known better by the end and taken some chances when he had nothing left to lose. For example, he chose Republican Garland thinking he was centrist and would pass thru to satisfy everyone. Obama should have just chosen Ketanji Jackson. Sure. Fox would have had a field day criticizing the black President for choosing his own race - but in response - how many white guys have appointed white guys? And it would have made the Repubs look far more racist than the already were. And we wouldn't have the Merrick Garland problem we have now!

by Anonymousreply 165June 19, 2022 7:38 AM

And instead of being a lame duck president, (something Trump refused to do), Obama should have fired Comey for what he did to Hillary. He was totally justified. Especially knowing that Trump was being investigated by the FBI when the rest of us did not. Then he could have appointed a Democrat. before Trump officially took over. And if Trump or anyone complained, tough shit! McConnell refused to come out with Obama in a partisan way to inform us the extant that Putin involved himself with out voting systems. Why? Because they all assumed Hillary would win, (which she fucking did!) and it would be a non-issue. But Trump "won". So Obama should have given McConnell a big fuck you and spoken up.

The only reason the Dems didn't speak up and give warning was because they were trying to be nice. And ever since we've all been paying the fucking price!

Say what you want about Nixon. At least he did the right thing at the very end. No, I'm not talking about his resignation speech. I'm talking about what he did after. He went away! He disappeared to his home in Santa Barbara and we barely ever heard from him again. Even Dick Cheney had the decency to disappear.

TRUMP WON'T FUCKING GO AWAY! He continues to commit crime after crime after crime. Why is that fucking piece of shit FAT ORANGE CUNT still giving rallies? and what is he saying? I'm sorry for all the damage I did? NO - he's urging his followers to continue to commit crimes. WHAT THE FLYING FUCK????

[quote] Fox News soon picked up the blog post. The news outlet interviewed Asra Nomani, a conservative education advocate, who claimed that Panorama has ties to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. "Merrick Garland has declared a war on parents," Nomani tweeted on Tuesday. By Thursday afternoon, several Republican members of Congress had chimed in on Twitter, calling for an investigation into the alleged conflict of interest with the attorney general. "The AG’s son-in-law's company makes millions selling CRT & other PC programs to our schools while the AG calls parents who question school boards, domestic terrorists. Conflict of interest, anyone? I'm joining several of my colleagues to investigate," Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Col.) tweeted on Thursday. Reps. Ken Buck (R-CO), Ronny Jackson (R-TX), and Jim Banks (R-IN) also called for Garland to be investigated.

The right-wing conspiracy theory pertaining to Garland’s son-in-law and CRT was shown to lack substance last October. The below link notes the perpetuators of the flawed assertion.

I know the wheels of justice turn slowly and that there all sorts of criteria and components required for a successful prosecution/conviction but I am super tired of articles like this from the NYT (tried gifting it to you all at the link, but DL rejected it) where they keep trying to move the goal posts and promote the supremacy of Trump's mental state over his obvious criminal activity and flouting of the law. I mean, a blind man on Pluto could see that Trump is guilty and this nonsense of "...but did he BELIEVE he won....did he BELIEVE there was actually fraud..." What a nonsense. Of course he knew he lost, that's already been established. Just because yet another unethical lawyer is trying to lay the ground work for a defense by publishing a 12-page response to the hearings, 18 months AFTER THE FACT does not negate the obvious intentions behind his actions.

I'm so sick of this. If Trump isn't prosecuted, there will never be a rule of law again. There will just be more of the "white establishment can commit any criminal acts they want" and "we'll prosecute minorities to continue to make them look bad". Sick of it.

[QUOTE] WTF has happened to this thread? We’ve finally been overrun by whacko trolls. Fuck, we had a good run.

Hi! Let me try and rectify the current troll infestation with some real tea.

So, my source shared some news with me today after we hung out:

As has been already reported in this thread, here is the lineup of witnesses for the next hearing:

Rusty Bowers Brad Raffensberger Gabriel Sterling Wanda Mosley

It will be a “Fucking with the Georgia Votes and Electors Day” presentation.

This is new: Judge Luttig helped his daughter move the day before his committee appearance and got a bad sunburn. That’s why he was so red-faced and tired sounding during some of his testimony presentation.

Also, the day they cancelled last week was, quite literally, because they were all fucking tired. They didn’t realize how exhausting it would be to have three hearings in one week. So they canceled the Thursday hearing. It’s as simple as that.

For all who are worried that Trump will not be prosecuted, my friend (who is very connected and “in the room”) says that he will be. But get ready for bunches of investigations and committees if the GOP takes over the House. One of the first things they’re going to go after is Pelosi for supposedly leaving the Capitol “under defended.” It will be the first thing they do.

Also, his “presentation” was not vetted so no one had any idea he was going to sound so halting and awkward during some of his testimony. He was obviously choosing this words very carefully because he knew the importance of them, but the entire staff were immediately texting each other saying “WTF? Why does he sound like that??”

The Biden and Merrick Garland bashing poster is obviously a Fox News loving plant, or a Russian here to sow Dem-on-Dem hate, he's so predictable!

Firstly, NO ONE here has ANY idea what the DOJ is doing or not, but somehow you think the DOJ is going to publicly announce everything it is doing vis a vis Trump and Jan. 6th, which is comical. Oh, then I remembered what kind of tards post here who can't explain the difference between the House and Senate, nor really any function of government, but can rattle off ten federal agencies and announce they are run by fools and incompetents without naming any! Typical.

By the way, the President lacks the power to directly fire Louis Dejoy, but as of about ten days ago got two of his appointees approved for the Postal Service. They will likely get the job done. All of this is information you can read online before you lose your minds bitching about it here!

I would love to give Garland the benefit of the doubt…and some time to get it right. However, their voters may not have as much patience and with the midterms coming up in 5 months - life being where it is now - there’s bound to be some backlash. One simply can sense the anger out there these days, with no criminal penalties brought to bear on Trump and his minions.

It’s simple really.

Many on this thread like to dismiss Seth Abramson, but he's been right about a lot of shit that came out. Check out his latest:

Today the House January 6 Committee made the most direct appeal it’s ever made to a prospective witness: Rep. Cheney (R-WY) called for former White House Counsel Pat Cipollone to agree to testify live. I know why and explain it here.

1/ Two things to note before I offer this narrative—a sequence of events uncovered in 16 months of research. First, let’s be clear: there are *many* things Cipollone can testify to; there’s a reason he repeatedly threatened to resign. Cipollone saw a *lot* of misconduct.

2/ But one thing in *particular* Cipollone saw hasn’t yet been testified to in any way before the House January 6 Committee— A 3-HOUR LATE 2020 MEETING THAT BEGAN IN THE OVAL OFFICE. Many journalists and historians deem it THE CRAZIEST MEETING EVER TO OCCUR IN THE OVAL OFFICE.

I already started a new thread on how…

The Supremes are actually LEGISLATING from the Bench. And they are succeeding because we are so focused on Jan. 6. They are also mulling about gutting the EPA when we know these CON Supremes themselves may be personally enriching themselves. If Garland is going to sit on his hands, we will no longer have a society, at least not the one we knew before. This is what happens when you do not hold criminals accountable for anything.

It never existed. Not arguing for or against religion but the Constitution only directed there be “𝑛𝑜 𝑟𝑒𝑙𝑖𝑔𝑖𝑜𝑢𝑠 𝑇𝑒𝑠𝑡 𝑠ℎ𝑎𝑙𝑙 𝑒𝑣𝑒𝑟 𝑏𝑒 𝑟𝑒𝑞𝑢𝑖𝑟𝑒𝑑 𝑎𝑠 𝑎 𝑄𝑢𝑎𝑙𝑖𝑓𝑖𝑐𝑎𝑡𝑖𝑜𝑛 𝑡𝑜 𝑎𝑛𝑦 𝑂𝑓𝑓𝑖𝑐𝑒 𝑜𝑟 𝑝𝑢𝑏𝑙𝑖𝑐 𝑇𝑟𝑢𝑠𝑡 𝑢𝑛𝑑𝑒𝑟 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑈𝑛𝑖𝑡𝑒𝑑 𝑆𝑡𝑎𝑡𝑒𝑠.”

Put another way you can't forbid a Catholic from an office or duty a Protestant would be permitted to hold and so forth. Freedom of religion, not freedom from religion.

The rest was pulled from thin air by Supreme Court justices sitting in a body you approach through a bronze door showing the Ten Commandments and sculpture of Moses with the tablets overlooking the building.

And then opens with a prayer:

The Honorable, the Chief Justice and the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. Oyez! Oyez! Oyez! All persons having business before the Honorable, the Supreme Court of the United States, are admonished to draw near and give their attention, for the Court is now sitting. God save the United States and this Honorable Court.

R271. Former Supreme Courts dating back from nearly a century did certainly not pull the separation Church and State out of thin air. It’s called Stare Decisis, it’s called precedent, which has been honored through generations of the Supreme Court. These current bastards on the SC are tossing out all precedents that they said under oath they would NOT do. They are criminals themselves (perjurers) that should be arrested and tried.

Imagine we possibly have hypocrites/criminals and bigots and white supremacists seated on our Supreme Court!

Oh, but Merrick Garland will come riding in to save the day! I think not!
