Russian Probe: If your innocent why pardoning the team?

President Donald J. Trump granted 15 individuals pardons yesterday. This is a clemency from Federal Prosecution and crimes. However, the President doesn’t have powers to circumvent state prosecution or investigations into people. Therefore, the limit is still there.

There is speculation about how these pardons was done… but most likely he traded the cards with several of donors and gave way to some, as they are his team and he doesn’t want them to rat him out after his time in office.

However, when your pardoning people like George Papadopoulos and Alexander Van Der Zwaan. These are not the most prolific people in the Trump Campaign Team of 2016. These was implicated in the collusion with Russia. The supposed “hoax” the President that has called it. Dismissed the Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the whole investigation. Where the President have blocked all witnesses and Congress investigation into it. They have made it impossible to dig into the truth.

These two was part of the Trump Team and they lied, they obstructed justice and the Trump Campaign even said their works was unimportant at one time. I remember Papadopoulos was called a “coffee boy” and a man serving coffee shouldn’t need a pardon. He should instead get some cream to make the coffee tolerable for more people.

So, if these people was innocent. Then they wouldn’t need to get pardoned, but appeal their cases and get it thrown out of courts. Just like all the election petitions in 2020. The Trump Campaign only shows that the US is broken system. Where the crooks can work together and if one of them get into office. The man in-charge can bail them out of the legal jeopardy they got into.

That these two are getting off the hook. Just shows what Trump intends to do. He has already helped his long term ally Roger Stone. There will be others who gets the help of the President. Especially now in the final days of his reign. This man will give clemency to the ones who was loyal to him. We can expect others being picked out and getting pardons. This being Paul Manafort or several others who was indicted. The man has already saved Gen. Michael Flynn. So, there is no reason for him to not save the whole gang.

What we can learn from this? Well, that foreign interference and working with foreigners in an election is cool if your Republican and Trump. However, the GOP and Trump Stans will die on this hill. We cannot expect anything else by people who eating the words of Newsmax, OAN and Fox News. Even Qanon is their voices of reason and that is Cult45 all over it. These folks will not care that the American Republic is traded for gold and licenses deals by their dear leader. No, they are following Trump blindly. So, that he worked with Russia to win is fine. The ones who are against communists and the reds, but can get help from Moscow. The ironies are so enriching from the outside.

Presidency of Trump has achieved a lot. There is a lot of damages to cover and fix for the administration. That the Department of Justice have been weaponized and therefore the up-coming investigations needs to be partisan and independent. There is a need see it and what to expect.

Trump clearly is a crony capitalist and a man who easily get corrupted. That is why he needs others to cover-up for him. Trump needs his allies, especially after he lost all his leverage of office. The Donald needs his former team to be on his side. As there are investigations into him and his businesses. He will be in court and these cases will be moved further. His executive privilege will be history. Therefore, he doesn’t need Papadopoulos and Van Der Zwaan has to be on his side. So, they will not tell more on him or expose him more. The man cannot afford that. Well, the man isn’t paying taxes. So, there is not that much he really can afford. The man has everything to loose and that’s why his few allies are bailed out and getting clemency. Though by doing that. He shows that the Trump Campaign was far from innocent. Because, if they needed pardons then they weren’t innocent at all. Peace.

Opinion: If you need a pardon, aren’t you guilty?

There are now reports in the news that President Donald J. Trump plans to pardon his inner-family and the “extended one” as his leaving office in January 2021. These pardons might be given to his sons Eric Trump, Donald Trump Junior and his daughter Ivanka Trump. His also planning to give a pardon to his son-in-law Jared Kushner.

The President has already given the extended powers within his office to former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Therefore, he can easily extend to others who has breached federal laws and clauses in office. There is several others that might be on the way. As there was plenty of associates who was a part of Trump Campaign 2016, which has been charged by the state for breaking the law. These could easily get pardons by the President too.

It would be easy to speculate that these gentlement might get a Presidential Pardon: Paul Manafort, Richard Gates, Stephen Bannon, Jeff Sessions, Carter Page, George Papadopolous, Roger Stone, Alexander Van Der Zwaan and Richard Pinedo. Nevertheless, his former personal lawyer who betrayed him. Michael Cohen will not be off the hook. However, the ones who has done his bidding. They might get off the hook and get a Presidential Pardon while he still can. That is anticipated, especially after the pardoning of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.  

The big gist here… if these people needs a pardon. Then they are admitting guilt. Flynn already stated that he lied and that he didn’t file as a foreign agent. Lt. Gen. Flynn was getting paid by Turkey and not filing the necessary papers to be officially so. Therefore, he coordinated with a foreign power without informing the state. This is why a man like that shouldn’t become a National Security Advisor for the President in the first place. 

This is why this here shows a pattern and what the Trump Presidency has done. The Office of the President and the White House. A White House that started with “lock her up” is now planning to “pardon my own kin and associates”. That is a real change of guard.

The Presidential Pardon gives clemency from Federal Prosecution, but cannot be invoked for state investigations or local investigations. Meaning, the Southern District of New York and the Attorney General of New York (Manhattan) can still prosecute and indict the Trump family members. All the other state attorneys and law enforcement can investigate the persons in question and charge them eventually for crimes. Therefore, the limitations of the pardon sets a standard for the future. 

However, if the President gives these pardons to his family and inner-circle. The people who are receiving it is initially stating their guilt. That they did some crime(s) and criminal conspiracy of some kind. If they didn’t, why did they need a pardon in the first place?

If you are innocent and has nothing to hide. Then you don’t need a pardon. If your not a criminal or haven’t acted with criminal intent. Then there should be no reason to accept a pardon. Since, there is no reason for you to have it.

This is what should shatter the United States. The Trump Family and associates can go free. The peculiar thing will be how they portray it and the reasoning for accepting it. Since it sends a message that they know what they did and that they hope they can get away from possible prosecution.

A pardon is something you need if you have done the deed. If you need the clemency from a criminal charge, then your by default a felon. Which is lucky to be saved by the mercy of the ones offering the pardon and cleaning your criminal record. However, if you don’t have done a crime and haven’t had criminal intent. There shouldn’t be a need for one….

So, by default by giving this to his family and associates. It is a token and showing the world how they operated. Since, they all need a pardon to save themselves. A guilty plea by direct action of accepting the pardon. Initially stating their guilt for the world to see. 

The ironic part is that the Presidential Pardon might not even save them. As the family members and associates might have to answer for crimes on the state level. This shows that there is little to gain here other than proving guilt by association. Peace.

Opinion: AG William Barr is a dictator’s wet dream

Do you need someone to defend the indefensible and who doesn’t care to carry your load? Then you should hire a guy like Attorney General of the Unites States of America, William Barr. He is ready, locked and loaded. This man will tell stories, ensure you deeds goes unpunished and go after your enemies.

AG Barr will lie, in a fashion and manner like no other. He will create crimes, enemies and means to use force on civilians. Will claim usage of weapons, tear-gas or others are not a way to take away the constitutional rights to demonstrate. Neither is the misuse of it for a photo-op for the President either.

To take a political stance on the Mueller Report and investigation. Do what you can to favour the felons, the ones who lied to Congress and to the FBI free. Is fine, as long as these are loyal allies of the President. However, if they have turned on the President, then you use the full force of the law to make things hectic for them. Alas, that is what water-boys does for their Quarterbacks.

AG Barr will weaponize the Department of Justice to pursuit all means, close investigations, fire state attorney generals and make lenient charges on people who caused harm to democracy, to trade secrets and intelligence with foreign powers; and obstructed justice. That is all fine, as long as these men are loyal to the President.

This is just what any dictator in their right minds want to have. A buddy, a comrade in arms and someone who is acting as their lawyer. Using the state and its monopoly of rule of law to bring the enemies of the President to the Courts. To use the maligned Court system to criminalize the opponents and strike with vengeance filled fury.

AG Barr can ensure the public is feeling the pain for demonstrations. That there are no legal trouble for the state to send armed mobs to Portland and elsewhere. To ensure ICE can easily breach the peace to take students into vans and other immigrants. AG Barr will secure everything and doesn’t mind by showing loyalty to the President.

The AG will do whatever, even if it breaches the laws and the constitution. Barr will pursuit the needs of the President and not act independent from him. His just waiting to waggle his tail and bark the orders his getting.

President Trump must be proud, he finally found someone so loyal that he will break laws and do impeachable offences in office. AG Barr will destroy his whole legacy and his name, because the President tells him too.

Who knew that Trump had the ability to pick a man like this after having two Attorney Generals. He needed two more before he found his perfect partner in crime. A man who has no scruples and heart, a man who will use his office to defend and use the state to secure his allies. Instead of using the Department of Justice for its purpose.

It has become evident. It has become clear. To think otherwise is stupid and AG Barr is being a dictators wet dream. He will do whatever the President needs … and doesn’t care how he double-cross his past behaviour. It doesn’t matter if it is destroying the rule of law in the mercy of the President. That is the sort of man Barr is and this is legacy. The man must be so proud, that is how he will be remembered.

Plus he support police brutality, accepts foreign interference in elections and weaponize the Department of Justice in favour of the President’s Men like Paul Manafort and Roger Stone. This man would trade his heart to serve the President, at least that is how it looks and his name is tainted forever. Peace.

All the President’s Men: Flynn & Stone “Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free-Card”

I know that the President isn’t the Monopoly Man, but his dealing out “Get-Out-Jail-Free-Card” like him in real life. There is no indication that rule of law matters, neither is the ideal of everyone is equal before the law. The United States of America is a broken, failure of a state. Where voting purge, where police brutality and identity politics are ordinary features.

This compelled with the compromised Department of Justice. Which is a weaponized tool of the White House. Instead of being an independent organization respecting and enforcing the codes of law. That is dream and not the reality in Trump’s America.

That is why the Department of Justice and Attorney General William Barr is willing to trade all honesty, all equal treatment and enforcing it accordingly to protocol. We are seeing that…

That train has left and there is apparently no return of it in sight. The President and his Attorney General is blatant in disregard to the rule of law and enforcing towards their own. This being people who has pleaded guilty, been unregistered foreign agents and so fourth. They are apparently allowed to solicit information during campaigns with foreign actors, which they later lied about meeting. It doesn’t matter where it is from, but the conspiracy to do so for the benefit of a candidate. Should be a thing that is illegal and treated that way. However, since these people did it for the current day President. They can get off the hook.

This is okay, that they are conspiring with foreign powers and using that information to beat their opposition. As later investigation see they are lying to congress and to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). If a random bloke from any Ville or Port would do this. Then they would linger in jail like Reality Winner and other leakers. Whistleblowers are prosecuted and arraigned in court.

Stone is getting a pleasant amount of time behind bars for his relationship with the President. The same can be said about Flynn. We can rest assure that the other ones whose associated with the President will get help or a get out of jail free-card. Maybe not Michael Cohen, his former personal lawyer, but expect others to suddenly get out of the penitentiary like Paul Manafort.

The Republican’s can lie to themselves. They can cheat themselves and claim to be the party of rule of law. However, its hard to sell: when you give people who conspired against the state freedom. That is basic … very simple to understand and should be common sense. This is giving immunity to people by giving grace, freedom and extended liberty to the ones who is connected to the President. They can steal, graft and conspire against the state. This they can do for the simple reason: They are buddies and friends of the President.

This are the legal precedence of the United States. The US can never tell dictators that they cannot shield their graft or their criminal friends. For the same reason as the US is now shielding the friends of the President. The US is now allowing illegal activity being done by associates of the President. They got a special number at the Department of Justice. The Trump Administration is directing the Department to them favours. That is really the sickening state of the US.

This is what tyrants and dictators do. They are allowing associates eat, rule with impunity and get away with it. That’s for the same as the associates of Trump. If you know, now you know. The ones showing loyalty to the President. Can get a better treatment and less of stint in jail. That is how corrupt the President is and to what extent he goes. He makes dictators proud for his actions. Since he acts just like they would. However, if they did the same. The US would condemn and even sanction them. Nevertheless, the US will not get any retorts for acting like this. Peace.

Opinion: The axing of Berman is following a pattern

The Attorney General of Southern District of New York, the President Trump appointee, Geoffrey Berman was ousted, axed or sacked by the White House yesterday. The AG of SDNY is under fire for the simple reason the SDNY is investigating associates of the President. So, the President has waited for the right time to cancel that.

It is not the first time the President is obstructing justice. He has weaponized the Attorney General with William Barr. He has changed the leadership in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and in the Department of Justice (DoJ). This has always been in association with people connected to the President and their actions. It is like the President want to exonerate his people for doing illegal things, but pin the same crimes on his enemies. Just like a tin-pot dictator does.

That is why the President is now going after Berman. He has dared to challenge and look into Trump associates in New York. There been connections to the mob with the Trump Organization, there been actual gangsters living in the Trump Tower. So, its not like a forged narrative to think his associated with mobsters and people who criminally conspire for personal gains. That is a very connection to do and the massive scams made by his organization as well. Is just another step in the manner, which the President has behaved in the past and that wouldn’t change over night.

With that in mind, the idea that the President wouldn’t change an Attorney General isn’t new either. His on his third Attorney General with Barr alone. The first one, Jeff Sessions dared to recuse himself from one investigation into the Trump Campaign and their foreign associates. This displeased His Excellency and so later on he sacked him. Just like he did to plenty of others.

Just like the DoJ have used their means to make the associates of Trump get lenient sentences and career professionals with the DoJ has resigned over this. Therefore, the idea that independence of the DoJ with Trump is naive thought now. After all it has done to deplete and ensure safeguarding for the men around him. Even if they are breaching laws, corrupting the system and ensuring riches on behalf of the state reserves. That is just like an dictator does, the brotherhood Trump wants to join and be part of.

I am shocked that Trump tried to get Berman fired? No, I expect that by now. Everything that is in and around is corrupted. The way not to show or expose the corruption is to actually block it, stop it or shut it down. Trump wants it stop looking into his allies and associates. Even if they are doing illegal activity.

Only thing matters for Trump is to exonerate his men, nothing else. Others can be charged and punished. Even shoot innocent demonstrators, but if your are friend doing illegal activity you are allowed to do so. That is why his on the war-path in concern of this. He wants to ensure his men safety for their loyalty to him. That matters more than actual justice. The “Law and Order” President is far from that, his the disorder president and the Mafioso President.

He wants to be the Don so badly, that his trying to mimic Michael Corleone, but only becoming a pompous and bourgeoisie fellow who cannot even drink water properly. He wants to be bad-ass so hard, but his weak-tea. Yes, his men is acting criminal and corrupt, but that is not a sign of strength. It is all sign of weakness, because the President is doing this to get his men into safety. Also, what part of the Trump Organization or whatever else they been looking into. He wants that gone and doesn’t want it looked into.

Berman is the target for the simple reason: He aimed at king and he didn’t miss. SDNY is looking into a man who doesn’t want to be transparent, because he has everything to loose. That is why he has never released his tax-returns. His a frightened man who wants to silence the ones whose looking into him and his associates.

The fake Mafioso is here and he enjoys it with his New York Gang. He maybe have moved to Florida on paper, but his businesses and family is in New York. Peace.

Opinion: If Bolton is a traitor, what is His Excellency?

I have never liked John Bolton. No matter what administration in the United States he has served. He has been a war-hawk and someone who intend to bomb other republic’s to oblivion. Because he can and because the US has the military power to do so. Bolton is not a noble man, but his not a traitor, even if Secretary of State Michael Pompeo call him that. He just issued dirty laundry in his newest book and it has hit the pride of the White House.

I find it really interesting that an administration where the Head of State is always asking for electoral interference and help to win from foreign forces is calling someone a traitor. I thought the treacherous to have foreign powers to interfere in elections and state affairs. That is what the President has done plenty of times now and he was even impeached for one instance. Another one was the investigation of it with a Special Counsel to look into it.

The book of Bolton proves there is a third party where the President has asked for help to dig up dirt and make issues for the opposition candidate Joe Biden. He has now worked with Russians, Ukrainians and now the Chinese. Soon, he will do another call Putin to get WikiLeaks and Guccifer back online to drop intelligence on the DNC again. Since that is what he do and get away with it.

President Trump and Pompeo can call out names, but its their pride that Bolton aired out his thoughts, his stories and his time in office. Just as its campaign season ahead of the November elections. Its weakening him and making him look even more fragile, than when he went into bunker during demonstrations.

Trump cannot deem Bolton as traitor, because there is no proof and no charges put on him. Not like with his personal lawyer, campaign manager and who else of his associates that been hit by the legal system since he took office.

The White House should be a bit more careful. There been enough secret meetings and revelation of sketchy behaviour, which is done in secret and revealed during investigations. That’s why even the proud Penguin aka Roger Stone was also charged. There been so many in and around the President that has gotten into legal jeopardy. So with that knowledge, even having a foreign agent not registered working directly with a foreign actors without telling. That being Michael Flynn who was at one point National Security Advisor. Also questionable meetings with the incoming Attorney General Senator Jeff Sessions, who held secret meetings with Russian ambassador. It so many instances where associates, people in-connection with President has held talks and solicited intelligence from foreign powers. That should be put into question of treachery.

With the knowledge of that and the history of this administration. They should be careful to pin anyone else as treacherous. As they themselves are having no issues or quarrels asking Russians, Ukrainians and Chinese to help them out. I am sure the President would ask help from Turkey and others too, if they had any suction. Because that is the sort of man he is. He can be a villain and act in a manner, which could be deemed as treacherous. However, he gets away with it for the simple reason. There are too many scandals to follow one after the other.

The President and his Secretary of State should do this to Bolton. Unless, they want to take accountability for their own actions. If they want to be transparent about how they have used all channels to get information and help with the elections. If all information of that came out. It would be a shit-storm, because the investigations into it has only skimmed the surface. That’s for the reason of blocking information and shielding release of documents, call-logs and transcripts. The secrecy proves there are more than what this administration wants the world to know.

I got nothing good to say about Bolton. His times in office is of a creep and a war-hawk. I’m not the kind of person that wants those sort of men in office. However, I am not the man who appointed and gave him an office. That is what the President did, just like he gave and appointed other questionable individuals to his cabinet as well. Therefore, he should more careful and maybe even vet them better. We all know that wouldn’t happen, because then his corrupt cronies wouldn’t get a place.

This President and his team better act wiser. Not to throw around the allegation of treason, as he has acted upon that and request things that could be deemed fit for that himself. That’s why its a double standard in this regard. Enough nonsense. Peace.

Opinion: Freeing Lt. Gen. Flynn is injustice

Today, there is news of dropping charges on former Trump advisor and National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. He was an illegal foreign agent for Turkey, lied about his meetings with Russian agents and connections to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). Therefore, the prolonged case and change of stance is now bearing fruits.

As the Trump Administration has its third Attorney General William Barr and his willing to be water-boy of the President instead of being an independent judiciary. Whose now serving the President’s will blindly.

To free Michael Flynn would be something dictators do to free their men from the tolls of the law. Especially, since he was serving as the part of the Trump Campaign and Trump Transitional Team before becoming the National Security Advisor. All of that was happening while he was doing shady back-door communication with both Turkey and Russia. Something he pleaded guilty to the Special Counsel Robert Mueller in November 2017.

So, its not like he haven’t already pleaded guilty to the crime of being an foreign agent without registration. Also, the statement of the Offense from 30th November 2017 says it all. However, AG Barr doesn’t seem to care. That people are willing to risk selling out information to Russian ambassadors and such. Not caring that Flynn was working for Turkey in the US. That is what this is signalling. As the US is supposed to go to the poll in November 2020.

This shows contempt of the law. Another proof that the Republican Party and President Trump doesn’t value rule of law. The law is only for their enemies and not for them. The law is only a tool for immigrants, but not for the ones whose made men like Flynn.

We are seeing the standard and the way they operate. The man was going to sentencing, but has been postpone for about two years now. They are now dropping the charges. While he was a man who broke the law, who did it knowingly and a man who served as a high ranking official.

That sort of man is dangerous and still he will be freed to the streets. A petty thief would linger in jail, heck a slinger of crack be decomposed in the pen. While this man who betrayed the Republic will walk free. That shows the merits of America under Trump or to correct it. The value of rule of law in Trump’s White AmeriKKKa. Because, this is who they are and what they will do.

Expect something to happen with Manafort and all the other cohorts whose already in jail. When they can touch Flynn who pleaded guilty. They can find ways to fix the others too. It is just a matter of time. Rule of law and justice is only a mirage for these folks. The codes of laws are only for the common man, not for the made ones. Peace.
