Biden and the Sovietization of American Justice

In a chilling statement showing his complete disdain for the rule of law, our purported ‘President’ Joe Biden said that he is “praying the verdict is the right verdict” and that he believed the evidence in the case is “overwhelming.” This comes just one day after the judge in the Derek Chauvin trial pleaded for elected officials to stop referencing the case “especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch and our function.”

By doubling down on Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-California) inciting a mob to not to accept anything other than a guilty verdict in the case, Biden has violated his oath of office to protect American due process rights. Notwithstanding his claim that he withheld any public comments until after the jury was sequestered, Biden’s openly weighing in on the desired outcome of trial is a clear signal to the radical Left that they have his permission to riot and burn down cities if Chauvin is not convicted.

The actions and statements of Biden, Waters, and other Democrats undermines the independence of the judicial system and is more consistent with the practice of ‘telephone justice’ as practiced in the Soviet Union than the legal rights that Americans have been guaranteed under our Constitution.

Maxine Waters’ Lynch Mob Tactics Undermines the Judicial System

In another example of the Democrats’ support of political violence, Representative Maxine Waters (D-California) incited a violent mob in Minnesota yesterday to not to accept anything other than a guilty verdict for Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis police officer on trial for the death of Daunte Wright. Just one day after the week long protests descended into violence, Rep. Waters’ urged protesters at Brooklyn Center to “to get more confrontational.”‘

“I am not happy that we have talked about police reform for so long,” Waters said. “We’re looking for a guilty verdict,'” she added in regards to the Derek Chauvin trial. ‘”If we don’t, we cannot go away.”

“We gotta stay on the street,'” Waters was recorded saying, adding that protesters needed ‘”to get more confrontational” and they should ignore the curfew in place.

Waters has a history of calling for violence to advance the Democrats’ radical political agenda. In 2018, Maxine Waters infamously called for attacks on the Trump administration, telling a crowd of supporters, “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Her call for increased street violence to pressure the jury to deliver a politically acceptable verdict is the antithesis of the ideals of the American judicial system. For Waters, and too many other Democrats and Leftists, the judicial system is just another tool of political power. What Waters is doing is substituting the political pressure of the mob for the deliberations of an impartial jury to determine the guilt or innocence of someone on trial. In other words, what she wants is a lynching, not a trial.

Closing arguments in the Chauvin trial are on Monday and it is an open question of whether the jury will be swayed by the evidence beyond a reasonable doubt presented at court or by the political pressure coming from the streets. I wouldn’t want to be on that jury, knowing the consequences of finding Chauvin not guilty.

Nonetheless, anyone who has followed the trial closely knows by now that the prosecution has failed to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. To understand full weakness of the prosecution’s case is against Chauvin, I highly recommend Andrew Braca’s article: Chauvin Trial Verdict Prediction (of Sorts): On legal merits alone, not guilty — but political dynamics drive injustice.

UPDATE: Not unexpectedly, the level of violence surrounding the Chauvin trial has escalated only hours after Waters’ incendiary statement. A news release from the Minnesota National Guard said that the Minnesota National Guardsmen security team were fired upon at about 4:19 am, local time early Sunday morning. Fortunately, the injuries two guardsmen sustained were minor. 

Tennessee Considering Requiring Watermarks on Absentee Ballots, Regulate Outside Funding for Election Officials

Both of these measures should be unobjectionable common sense moves to improve election integrity, but I’m sure that Democrats will look for a judge somewhere to declare them to be racist: General Assembly Considering ‘Tennessee Election Integrity Act’ to Regulate Outside Funding for Election Officials, Require Official Watermarking for Absentee Ballots.

Today’s Media: All the Disinformation Fit to Print

There has been a floodgate of news in past few days exposing how the fascists in the establishment media and social media are purposely manipulating their news reports to push disinformation and leftist propaganda on the American public. There can be no denial anymore that the today’s media is not interested in reporting the truth to fully inform the American public, but instead has become a tool of a fascist ruling class to control the American public by the dissemination of propaganda.

The scandal is not just that these so-called “journalists”feel no shame in their blatant attempts to manipulate public opinion. More telling is that the entire leftist establishment (academia, entertainment, politicians, big business, etc.) is completely supports this dissemination of disinformation and the suppression of news reporting that contradict with the “approved” narrative. Why has their been absolute silence by the “elites” and opinion makers in the Left on these media scandals? Are their no honest Leftist remaining?

By their actions the Left is proving on an almost daily basis that their goal is the accumulation of absolute uncontested political and economic power so that they can fundamentally transform the United States into a fascist totalitarian regime.

Tracking the Infection of Critical Race Theory in Higher Education

As I have written before, Critical Race Theory has become the central doctrine in the Democrats’ push to fundamentally transform the United States from a constitutional republic dedicated to protected the rights and liberties of Americans into a despotic fascist state where the government uses its coercive powers to distribute benefits and privileges among officially favored and disfavored social groups.

The far left disguises this toxic doctrine as an outgrowth of the civil rights movement by using words such as “equity” (i.e. equality of outcomes rather instead of equality before the law and equality of opportunity) and “diversity and inclusiveness” (i.e. racial quota instead of color blindness). But where the civil rights movement sought to work inside the American political system to expand the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution, the goal of critical race advocates is to tear down the very foundations of American liberal democratic order.

Critical Race advocates are actively harnessing higher education to indoctrinate young Americans in its racist ideology. Critical Race Theory, which started out as a neo-Marxist movement in academia, is now being pushed as mandatory “anti-racist” training for students, faculty, staff throughout higher education.

Fortunately, the Legal Insurrection Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to educate and inform the public on the Constitution and liberty, has created a new website, criticalrace.org to inform parents and students on the spread of Critical Race Training on American campuses. The website includes a database of over 200 colleges and universities, expected to be expanded to 500 in a matter of months, that details how Critical Race Theory is infecting all aspects of higher education.

The website also provides resources for people to learn what is Critical Race Theory is and how it translates into campus action. It includes a resource page with links to a wide range of critiques of Critical Race Theory and Training.

Critical Race Theory is a racist ideology that is not compatible to American liberty. This new website is an important tool in the struggle to preserve the blessing that our Founding Fathers gave to us in 1776.

The ‘Fundamental Transformation’ of America into a Fascist Despotism Speeds Up

The Democrats “fundamental transformation” of America from a constitutional republic into a fascist despotism is speeding along at a dizzying pace. It has been only three weeks since Joe Biden was installed as president, but it seems a lifetime ago considering all of the damage that he and his fascist allies have wrecked on this nation.

In contrast to the hollow claims of the Left that Donald Trump was a dictator, the Biden regime is actually undoing more than two centuries of political norms to criminalize political dissent and to destroy the liberties that our Founding Fathers fought to preserve. The following list of links are just the latest headlines on this drive toward despotism.

Biden has bypassed the constitutional order for legislation by issuing a record number of executive orders and actions. This despite the Democrats having control of both the Senate and the House of Representatives, which gives Biden the full ability to move his radical agenda through legislation. The reckless speed of these actions is clear evidence that Biden and his handlers fear that their radical policy agenda will suffer if given full exposure in Congress.

The Democrats are transforming a constitutional process to remove a sitting president into an unconstitutional bill of attainder to prevent a private citizen from running for elective office and to undermine the right of American voters from choosing their leaders. The Democrats’ charge that Trump was “singularly responsible” for the mayhem in the Capitol has been exposed as a farce as more information comes to light that it was pre-planned.

The Democrats are pushing for a fundamental transformation of the U.S. military from apolitical force dedicated to protecting the nation’s security from foreign threats to a politically reliable force that can be unleashed against whoever the regime labels as “domestic extremists.” This is perhaps the most dangerous threat to Liberty in the Democrats’ relentless drive to despotism.

The Democrats are now brazenly calling for the blacklisting of political opponents from government employment and censoring their speech by labeling them as “extremists.” The Left has no embarrassment for its drive to openly politicize the civil service. Suppressing the circulations of dissenting voices has been one the basic tools of despotism since time immemorial.

The Democrats are fundamentally transforming American schools from institutions of education into tools of political indoctrination. We can expect the Biden’s Department of Education in the not too distant future to make the racist Critical Race Theory and the ahistorical 1619 Project part of the required curriculum in public and private schools.

Biden Press Secretary to Dismissed Pipeline Workers: “Let them eat cake”

On Monday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki dismissed a question from Peter Doocy of Fox News on where the American workerwho lost their jobs due to Joe Biden’s executive order shutting down the Keystone XL pipeline would get the promised “green jobs” by giving a snarky response as callous and out of touch as anything uttered by Marie Antoinette.

Well, I’d certainly welcome you to present your data of all the thousands and thousands of people who won’t be getting a green job,” Psaki answered. “Maybe next time you’re here you can present that.

In Psaki’s world, government officials are not to be questioned about the veracity of their claims or held accountable for failure to fulfill empty promises.

At least 11,000 American workers have already lost their jobs due to Biden’s executive order shutting down the Keystone XL pipeline. Thousands more workers in supporting industries will also lose their jobs as the the effects of Biden’s order trickles through the US economy.

Psaki’s dismissive response was pure deflection as she is fully aware, or should be if she had any cognitive abilities, that none of these now unemployed workers will be getting any new “green jobs.” Even if the Democrat’s energy policies were miraculously create thousands of well paying jobs, which is highly doubtful, they would not appear until five to ten years into the future. This is hardly comforting to families who have mortgage payments due next month and now have to scramble to replace lost incomes.

Secondly, the skill set for any of these future new jobs would be entirely different from that of the jobs now being destroyed. Any new employment generated in the “green energy” sector would undoubtedly go completely different set of workers than those who are now facing a bleak future.

In addition, the potential future green jobs will not undo the damage to the local economies inflicted by Biden’s imperious executive order. The many hotels, restaurants, barbers, and other mainstays of the local economy will find no solace in the formation of new jobs elsewhere in the country.

The Democrat’s constant retort that Americans who lose their jobs due to government interference in the economy can get equivalent jobs through retraining is reflective of a mindset that treats workers and interchangeable cogs rather than as individuals possessing unique sets of skills acquired over years of hard work.

In the view of Democrats, individual lives and welfare must necessarily be sacrificed to achieve progress toward the glorious future that can only be reached by controlling hand of the state. They misconstrue the proper role of government as one that guides the lives of its subjects rather than one that protects the liberties and security of its citizens. The path being pursued by Biden and the Democrats leads only to despotism, reducing free men to slaves of the state.

Critical Race Theory and the Racial Tribalism of Joe Biden and the Democrats

When Joe Biden delivered his divisive speech on his installation as president, he described the divisions in this country with these words: “Our history has been a constant struggle between the American ideal, that we are all created equal, and the harsh ugly reality that racism, nativism and fear have torn us apart.”

Biden was partially correct when he uttered those words. America today is indeed in a struggle between those who believe in the Founding idea that “all men [and women] are created equal” and those who support a racist ideology that would plunge America into the horrors of tribalism. The problem with Biden’s position, however, is that he mixed up the sides.

Biden made clear which side he was on when he signed an executive order that reversed President Trump’s executive order that banned the use of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the training of federal employees and contractors. CRT is a poisonous neo-Marxist ideology that judges a person’s worth solely due to his race. Except for which races are favored or disfavored, the core racial beliefs of CRT are indistinguishable from those of the KKK and Nazi Germany.

Biden went ever further in institutionalizing this racist ideology, now a dogma of the Democratic Party, when he appointed Susan Rice as the director of his Domestic Policy Council. Biden tasked Rice to implement the tenets of CRT, under the guise of “equity,” to all aspects of Federal policy.

CRT also holds a central role in the Democrats’ election strategy. Daniel Greenfield at Frontpage Mag has an excellent article on this entitled Critical Race Theory is How Democrats Plan to Win Elections on how they have weaponized CRT to terrorize the suburban middle class to support this racist dogma. Here is an excerpt, but I highly recommend reading the entire article:

Critical race theory is doing what it’s supposed to do by polarizing America along tribal racial lines and along class lines among white people. White suburban moms attend book clubs discussing White Fragility and other critical race theory texts as a form of networking. Having the right politics is crucial to your career in a variety of fields. Not all of the signs asserting that in this house the inhabitants believe in science, love, and black nationalism, are voluntary statements of belief. They’re people flying the new post-American tribal flag to fit in.

CRT as implemented by the Democrats would pervert the proper role of government. Under the Democrats’ totalitarian vision, the government will no longer be one that aims to protect American liberties as promised by the Founders. Instead, the government will use the coercive powers of the state to administer “social justice” and to ensure “equity” for the government-anointed favored racial and social groups. Government-imposed “equity” is the antithesis of equality.

CRT is an existential threat not just to their electoral chances of the Republican Party, however, but to the very concept of liberty as enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. As such, we need a robust response to this threat if our constitutional republic dedicated to liberty is to survive.

Republicans need to put the Democrats on a constant defense for their racist ideology. This should be central to Republican politics going forward. A return of GOP politics to the pre-Trumpian emphasis on tax reform, balanced budgets, and favors for the Chamber of Commerce as envisioned by Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), former Governor John Kasich (R-OH), and other “Bourbon Republicans” trying to restore l’ancien régime is insufficient in today’s fight against the totalitarian and divisive policies of the Democratic Party.

Time Exposes Secret Conspiracy to Rig the Election

Now that Joe Biden has been safely installed as president, the Left feels that it is safe to brag about how they rigged the election for his benefit. On February 4, Time magazine published a shocking exposé on the Left’s conspiracy to rig the 2020 Presidential election with the Orwellian title of The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election.

In the article’s own words, it was “a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information.” The participants in this cabal deny the reality of what they were doing was rigging the election by claiming, instead, that they were “fortifying it.”

The article is full of such Orwellian language, designed to portray this election interference as “saving democracy,” but a close examination shows that their actions had nothing to do with ensuring a fair election, but instead was intended to tilt the election in the direction of their favored candidate, Joe Biden.

There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans. The pact was formalized in a terse, little-noticed joint statement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and AFL-CIO published on Election Day. Both sides would come to see it as a sort of implicit bargain–inspired by the summer’s massive, sometimes destructive racial-justice protests–in which the forces of labor came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace and oppose Trump’s assault on democracy.

The article openly and brazenly documents a wide-ranging conspiracy to illegally change election laws, eliminate voting integrity safeguards, and to manipulate social media platforms to control the information that American voters were allowed to see.

Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time. They successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears.

According to the Time article, the conspiracy had its start in the fall of 2019, when Mike Podhorzer, a senior adviser to the president of the AFL-CIO, became alarmed that normally Democrat-voting union members were moving toward President Trump.

Trump’s election in 2016–credited in part to his unusual strength among the sort of blue collar white voters who once dominated the AFL-CIO–prompted Podhorzer to question his assumptions about voter behavior … It was only after months of research that he introduced his concerns in his newsletter in October 2019 …. “We desperately need to systematically ‘red-team’ this election so that we can anticipate and plan for the worst we know will be coming our way.”

To counter this threat, Podhorzer assembled a coalition of far-Left groups who shared his desire to secretly influence the election. Although Time couches this effort as “saving democracy,” the list of the members involved makes it clear that this was a coalition of groups more interested in achieving a victory for the Democrat Party candidate than in ensuring a free and fair election.

In his apartment in the D.C. suburbs, Podhorzer began working from his laptop at his kitchen table,holding back-to-back Zoom meetings for hours a day with his network of contacts across the progressive universe: the labor movement; the institutional left, like Planned Parenthood and Greenpeace; resistance groups like Indivisible and MoveOn; progressive data geeks and strategists, representatives of donors and foundations, state-level grassroots organizers, racial-justice activists and others.

Private philanthropy stepped into the breach. An assortment of foundations contributed tens of millions in election-administration funding. The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative chipped in $300 million. … McReynolds’ two-year-old organization became a clearinghouse for a nation struggling to adapt. The institute gave secretaries of state from both parties technical advice on everything from which vendors to use to how to locate drop boxes. 

The Time exposé also confirms the role that social media oligarchs played in censoring the views of conservatives on the internet and suppressing the dissemination of news stories, such as the New York Post story on Hunter Biden, that could damage the Biden campaign.

The solution, she concluded, was to pressure platforms to enforce their rules, both by removing content or accounts that spread disinformation and by more aggressively policing it in the first place. “The platforms have policies against certain types of malign behavior, but they haven’t been enforcing them,” she says.

Quinn’s research gave ammunition to advocates pushing social media platforms to take a harder line. In November 2019, Mark Zuckerberg invited nine civil rights leaders to dinner at his home, where they warned him about the danger of the election-related falsehoods that were already spreading unchecked. “It took pushing, urging, conversations, brainstorming, all of that to get to a place where we ended up with more rigorous rules and enforcement,” says Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, who attended the dinner and also met with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and others.

Not mentioned in the article was that Gupta, a former U.S. assistant attorney general for civil rights under Obama, was also serving as a member of Biden’s criminal justice task force during the 2020 campaign. This makes her a direct link between the Biden campaign and the censoring of conservatives by Facebook and Twitter. Biden has rewarded Gupta by nominating her for associate attorney general, the third highest position at the Department of Justice.

In addition to ensuring that any discussion of voter fraud or the questioning of the security of mail-in voting was suppressed, the cabal flooded social media with coordinated messages that calling for the counting of all votes, regardless of their legality. One can only guess the role that Zuckerberg and Dorsey had in amplifying these messages on their platforms.

The Voting Rights Lab and IntoAction created state-specific memes and graphics, spread by email, text, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok, urging that every vote be counted. Together, they were viewed more than 1 billion times. 

At the same time, the cabal was coordinating its efforts with the violent far-Left terrorist groups that had organized the riots in American cities during the summer.

The racial-justice uprising sparked by George Floyd’s killing in May was not primarily a political movement. The organizers who helped lead it wanted to harness its momentum for the election without allowing it to be co-opted by politicians. Many of those organizers were part of Podhorzer’s network, from the activists in battleground states who partnered with the Democracy Defense Coalition to organizations with leading roles in the Movement for Black Lives.

These groups were used, among other things, to harass and intimidate urban voters by surrounding them at the polling stations with militant activists.

They created a force of “election defenders” who, unlike traditional poll watchers, were trained in de-escalation techniques. During early voting and on Election Day, they surrounded lines of voters in urban areas with a “joy to the polls” effort that turned the act of casting a ballot into a street party.

In anticipation of a possible Trump victory, the coalition even had plans for massive demonstrations (and riots?) across the country. The centralized nature of the planned nationwide protests was so strong that they were able to order a stand down during an 11 p.m. Zoom call.

More than 150 liberal groups, from the Women’s March to the Sierra Club to Color of Change, from Democrats.com to the Democratic Socialists of America, joined the “Protect the Results” coalition. The group’s now defunct website had a map listing 400 planned postelection demonstrations, to be activated via text message as soon as Nov. 4.

[snip]

The liberal alliance gathered for an 11 p.m. Zoom call. Hundreds joined; many were freaking out. So the word went out: stand down. Protect the Results announced that it would “not be activating the entire national mobilization network today, but remains ready to activate if necessary.”

After the election, the cabal enacted a plan to intimate canvassing boards to ignore questions about election fraud. It was all meant to appear as a grass-roots effort, but it was centrally planned ahead of time.

As they mapped out the steps in the election-certification process, activists settled on a strategy … They flooded the Wayne County canvassing board’s Nov. 17 certification meeting with on-message testimony; despite a Trump tweet, the Republican board members certified Detroit’s votes.

This centralized intimidation strategy was also extended to the state canvassing board.

When the meeting began, Reyes’s activists flooded the livestream and filled Twitter with their hashtag, #alleyesonmi. A board accustomed to attendance in the single digits suddenly faced an audience of thousands.

This Time article shows fragility of our democratic electoral process, but not in the way the author intended. The story laid out is not one of stalwart defenders of democracy saving an election, instead it is a tale of the lengths at which anti-democratic forces will go to pervert the outcome of an election and to ignore the will of the people. The fact that they feel no shame in admitting their actions, but instead actually brag about it, should stand as ominous warning that this will become standard practice for the Left in future elections.

Biden Signals ‘Anti-Terrorism’ Campaign Against Political Opposition

During a remote address on Thursday at the National Prayer Breakfast, Joe Biden abandoned his sham call for ‘unity’ and instead exploited the January 6 mayhem at the US Capitol to label opponents to his regime’s totalitarian policies as terrorists driven by extremism and racism.

“We just have to open our eyes. We’ve just witnessed images that we’ve never imagined — images that now we’ll never forget: a violent assault on the U.S. Capitol — an assault on our democracy, on our Capitol, a violent attack that threatened lives and took lives,” Biden said. “We know now we must confront and defeat political extremism, white supremacy, and domestic terrorism.”

It is clear to whom Biden was referring, and it was not to the far-Left Anitifa and BLM terrorists who were burning down American cities all summer.

Biden unveiled his strategy to use the charge of “white supremacy” to demonize the pro-Liberty opposition during his divisive inauguration speech.

Biden’s addition of “domestic terrorism” to his rhetorical assault against the pro-Liberty opposition is even more ominous. His statement followed last week’s abuse of the National Terrorism Advisory System to issue a warning of a “heightened threat environment” despite the Department of Homeland Security admitting that it “does not have any information to indicate a specific, credible plot.”

In the past week we have been seeing a growing disinformation campaign to link support for Donald Trump with an increasing threat of domestic terrorism. For example, earlier this week, Robert Grenier, former head CIA’s counterterrorism center, went on NPR and explicitly named former president Trump as the leader of domestic insurgency:

Another, I think, very important element that we haven’t talked about yet is what I would refer to as insurgent leadership. The fact of the matter is that the most violent elements that we are concerned about right now see former President Trump as a broadly popular and charismatic symbol.

Grenier ominously argued for the need to treat “domestic extremists” using the same counterinsurgency tactics used during the War on Terror.

Why all of this talk of domestic terrorism linked to Trump and his supporters? The January 6 chaos at the Capitol Building was a singular event. There have been no other violent events that can plausibly be set at the foot of Trump supporters.

This is in stark contrast to the hundreds of riots conducted during the past year and continuing by far-Left Antifa and BLM terrorists. Even in Capitol Building chaos there is strong evidence that far-Left extremists were involved.

The only logical conclusion that can be made is that the Biden regime and his far-Left allies are deliberately creating a predicate to unleash the coercive organs of the state against their political opponents.

Biden is no stranger in using intelligence agencies and law enforcement to target his political enemies. The evidence is overwhelming that President Obama and then Vice-President Biden knowingly exploited the false ‘Steele dossier’ to unleash the CIA and the FBI first to spy on then candidate Trump and then to attempt a silent coup d’état against President Trump.
