Happy Indictment Day to all those who celebrate.

Supposedly the judge will issue a gag order…which, if nothing else has, proves this is political. On what possible grounds would any judge demand silence on this case? It isn’t a matter of national security. All of the parties to it are public. Indeed, with leaks we’re already learning what the case is (as an aside, all leaks are felonies…think about that: the people charging Trump with felonies are committing felonies as they try to control the Narrative). I guess we’ll find out if that is the case.

The whole thing is stupid and destructive. But it is also our fault – that is, it is the Right’s fault. Why is there a commie DA charging Trump? Because for decades the Left worked hard in the trenches to take over the Institutions. They now have people who are committed to the Left. Not to America. Not to the people. Not to truth or the law – just to the Left. Trump is being charged because the Left wants him charged, and they’ve got a DA – indeed, a whole city government in NYC – which will knock down every law in place to get him. It took a long time to get here.

And it will take us a long time to get back. We’ve already discussed it a bit but there is nothing more important than things like school boards, county commissions and sheriff’s offices. Secondary importance are State legislatures. Least in importance right now are federal offices…all we need do is retain enough federal power to prevent a packing of the Court and hamstring efforts to legislate the Left into power. Sure, they’ll still just do whatever they can, but without a Court to ratify it as constitutional and without the ability to make it into law, it is really just something the Executive branch is doing…and that can be undone if we get that back.

But down in the cities and counties, that is where the action is. That is where you really shape the legal system and the culture. There is Drag Queen Story Time because we let the cities and counties fall to the Left. Take them back and we replace Drag Queen Story time with Veteran Story Time. We teach the kids to be healthy, sane patriots. We protect the rights of the people against Federal encroachment. We build the power base which will eventually allow us to recapture all of government and destroy the Left. We never give up the fight at the federal level…but we understand that until our States and localities are sending patriots to Congress, we can’t do much with the Federal government. If we build the power then one day we’ll find we’ve got a trifecta of America First in DC…and then the Revolution.

    Why is there a commie DA charging Trump?

    Because it’s NY. Have you ever seen more mindless sheep roaming the streets, combined with power hungry, predator, wealthy elites?? I haven’t. NY is a sewer of undesirables yet they all swim in the same political direction. Why? Because most of them, just don’t give a shit. AOC represents a district comprised of nearly 700,000 and won her first election with just 100,000 votes in 2018, and just 82,000 votes in 2022. And remember, this is someone who killed lots of good paying jobs in her district as one of her first action items.

    And if you haven’t all noticed, you’re going to be paying much higher gas prices this summer. I guess the Inflation Reduction Act isn’t working. Oh and the rest of world is moving on without America. I guess the world is tired of the stupidity of Biden and the Democrats … aren’t we all. China is aligned with Russia, Saudi Arabia is aligned with Iran, and NK is making deals with them all … and leaving America on the sidelines. Did you see what the President of El Salvador said?? LOL. Even he called out the authoritarian nature of indicting Trump and questioned America’s commitment to democracy. We are a joke on the world stage, and Democrats still think they are cool.

    Mass layoffs are happening (I love watching Biden voters get the pink slip), and a major recession is looming. We are f**ked.

      I get a kick out of the Left’s hyperventilating about the “Trump CULT”. This from a movement that is so inherently cultish it could define the term—but it does explain why they assume everyone else functions on the same adulation-of-the-anointed basis that they do.

      The thing is, support for Trump is anti-cult. It includes people who think he’s wonderful, people who think he’s obnoxious but effective, people who don’t like him at all but appreciate his boldness in standing up to the elites, and now even more people who just want to support pushing back against an evolving police state. Support for Trump is much less for him as a man and much more for what he represents.

      I don’t think he intended to be a lightning rod for the insanity of the Left, but that’s how it’s turned out, and it is fascinating to see the panic and fury he engenders just by being the anti-cult, anti-Left, symbol of F U to the elites who so smugly flex their muscles to inhibit liberty and impose their philosophy of control on everyone else.

      You don’t have to like Trump to be for Trump, and this is a lesson that might start to sink in as the Left continues to furiously keep digging itself into its hole.

    You can always tell when bad things are happening or about to happen because the price of precious metals surges. Gold blew through $2000 this morning, and silver is $25. Since last fall gold is up 25% and silver is up nearly 40%.

    Oh, poo! I just learned that Stella Artois is a Busch beer. I like it because it’s light and easy to drink, but to be honest a lot of it is because it comes in tall slender cans that fit in my refrigerator better than the chunky ones.

    Budweiser isn’t going to miss my business—-I’m a real beer lightweight—but I hope they do take a hit for their anti-woman pandering to the Loony Left. Do they think Lefties are their market? Or do they think this will lure them from their White Claw or appletinis?

    Thank Gawd North Dakota teachers are focused on the all the right things

    Teachers in North Dakota can still refer to transgender students by the personal pronouns they use, after lawmakers on Monday failed to override the governor’s veto of a controversial bill to place restrictions on educators.

    Folks, if we don’t get rid of teacher unions, American children don’t stand a chance at a decent life

    So the indictment violence never materialized as Fat Alvin was hoping it would. I guess the FBI was busy doing other things.

      Either that or they’re under such intense scrutiny that they don’t dare do anything untoward.

      • Amazona April 4, 2023 / 6:56 pm

        I think you’re probably right, Spook.

        I started to read the indictment but it was such BS it wasn’t worth the effort. Every count read, essentially, “…with intent to defraud and intent to commit another crime and aid and conceal the commission thereof, made and caused a false entry in the business records of an enterprise…” But there is nothing to explain what was “false” about the entries, and of course Bragg has refused to state the alleged “other crime” the existence of which is the only thing that allows him to disinter the dead and expired misdemeanor charge so he can bootstrap onto it to elevate it to a felony.

  7. jdge1 April 5, 2023 / 3:12 am

    Further down the list of crimes mentioned in the indictments:

    In 1997 Trump tore off the tag from a mattress,

    In 2001 Trump returned a VHS video tape without rewinding it,

    In 1994 Trump entered a cross walk when the countdown was down to 4,

    In 2004 Trump unbuckled his seatbelt on a commercial airline before the plane came to a complete stop,

    It was also reported that back in grade school Trump stuck gum on the underside of his desk… DNA samples are still being tested,

      All, or nearly all, of the “crimes” Trump associates have been accused of or convicted of are similar process crimes. While the Left elects DAs who refuse to prosecute murder, rape, arson, etc.

      And look at the outrageous treatment of the J6 defendants, denied their basic rights, held in solitary confinement, denied medical care, and certainly denied their rights to speedy trials. For what? For felony loitering, for the most part.

    Of all people, John Bolton nails it. And isn’t it more than a little hypocritical for Democrats to cite that Trump was trying to keep damaging information from voters, while the Biden’s and the DOJ were threatening social media to keep Hunter’s lap top under wraps?? This will not end well for Democrats. #Trump2024

  11. Amazona April 5, 2023 / 10:12 am

    The first of the allegations claims the offense took place on February 14, 2017, and all of the subsequent allegations reference events that took place after that in 2017.

    What I still haven’t seen is an explanation for how the alleged offenses were supposed to influence the election by hiding information, when they took place a month or so after Trump was inaugurated in January 2017.

        Matt Walsh: “It’s not – it’s not.”

        EMT: “Well biology researchers would disagree with you.”

        Matt Walsh: Well, they’re full of shit, the ones who would say that.”

    New Study: Vax Fanaticism Shaves 25 Years Off Life Expectancy

    A new study using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Cleveland Clinic revealed that people who have been fully vaccinated with COVID jabs could lose 25 years from their life expectancy.

    The bombshell study, compiled by renowned insurance analyst Josh Stirling, was released in the wake of a stunning February report from the UK government that showed “fully vaccinated” people accounted for a staggering 92% of COVID deaths last year.

    If a person remained unvaccinated, they were no more likely to die in 2022 than the previous year.

    We’ve still yet to know (though I guess there are some who have a good idea) all of the other negative effects of the experimental jab, and I can think of a number of areas beyond personal health were we will feel the fallout. Only in the warped minds of those who created and pushed this evil will the destructive aspects of this be considered, “a good thing”. Little do they know, when satan is done with them they too will be a negative statistic.

    • Amazona April 5, 2023 / 10:52 am

      Poor Stalin, he didn’t have the CDC to help him out and had to send in storm troopers to raid the homes of the kulaks, stripping them of everything they might find to eat, to kill off a few million. Ain’t modern technology grand? The Left can wipe out millions without all that shooting or starving mess.

  13. Retired Spook April 5, 2023 / 11:42 am

    I remember when the book A Fourth Turning came out in the late 90s. It had a profound effect on the way I looked at things. Robert Malone comments on the phenemenon a quarter century later.

    A Fourth Turning is a period in history when all the negative developments over a four-generation period reach a crescendo – a time when the sociopaths are the rulers and are putting the squeeze on the populace.

    In addition to an effort to institute totalitarian rule, symptoms include the breakdown of both morality and logic. Black is white; up is down. Confusion and chaos increase in both frequency and magnitude as the Fourth Turning advances.

    Those of a libertarian mindset tend to be especially sensitive to and cognizant of these symptoms as they unfold. Since a classic Fourth Turning takes place over roughly twenty years, by the time the halfway mark is reached and the symptoms are peaking, it may appear that “It just keeps getting worse. Won’t people ever wake up and understand that this is crazy?”

    Well, historically, the answer has always been “Yes.”

      I think this time will be a bit different: never have people been able to be propagandized so easily by the malevolent. The internet and smart phones have made it pervasive such as a Goebbles could never dream of in the past. The most ridiculous and obvious lies gain millions of adherents almost instantly. To me, this means they’ll be able to delay the political result of the collapse…of course, the longer you delay it, the worse it will be. Things are simply starting to not work…but it is buried under a mountain of lies.

      Heck: most people are unaware of the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Plant in Tonopah, NV – on the face of it, the concept of the plant looked good…but at the end of the day, Nevada Power terminated the contract when it was costing $135 per mwh when other solar arrays cost less than a quarter of that. Maybe they’ll eventually get it to work but meanwhile its a billion dollar waste of money of which you, dear taxpayer, picked up $700 million of the cost. Think about it – solar power is high tech but pretty freaking simple and here this company had buckets of taxpayer money, a place which is sunny almost all the time…and still couldn’t build it right. Supposedly engineers looked at the designs, right? Apparently nobody did the math which would have told them before they started that the energy produced would be fabulously expensive. I think about what my Dad actually did for a living – when you boil it down, it was to do the math on proposed aircraft and missile designs to see if they’d work before you even committed a cent to development or production. I guess we don’t have anyone with that level of math skills any longer.

      Then you think of derailing trains, ships launched with a list, buildings which topple over (or one here in Vegas which, after it was completed, the found that they had built it wrong and it would definitely fall over…so they had to dismantle it). We don’t know how to do things any longer. I don’t know how Musk managed to gather his team for his spacecraft…but they do seem to be one of the few engineering team which has its act together. Maybe its the last one we have?

      When the collapse comes, it will be rather stunning as everything just stops working all at once.

        You sound like a Socialist, heh.

        You may be right. The tech revolution has altered every aspect of life in a profound way, and the speed of technological advancement is accelerating at an exponential rate. Still, human nature is human nature is human nature. Technology just enables humans to hurt each other in new and novel ways.

        I came back to Colorado/Wyoming to take care of some business including getting my horse hooves trimmed, and have had to postpone my appointment twice and maybe a third time if the snow in Wyoming hasn’t melted enough by Monday to get it done. I’ve already changed my return flight once so might have to ask friends to get the work done for me if it ever stops snowing. They got about 2 feet at my place in Wyoming and more than that in Casper. I’ve had snow here in Colorado about every other day since I’ve been back.

      • Cluster April 5, 2023 / 4:34 pm

        The snow pack in the west is record breaking and the run off will be extreme. All the reservoirs in AZ are full – Saguaro lake, Canyon lake, and Lake Roosevelt are all full to the point they are already releasing some water in anticipation of what’s to come. God turned around the drought in one year.

      • Amazona April 5, 2023 / 6:44 pm

        Yeah, but those wily Californians are way too smart to build reservoirs to hold water in high-moisture years, no sirree. They are canny enough to put their money into a train that goes nowhere, promoting electric cars without adding electric infrastructure, and going after the deadly gas cook stove.

        No flies on them, by golly! After all, they are smart enough to elect Newsome and Pelosi after once electing Kammy Harris, flaunting their vast intellectual superiority at those of us out here in Flyover Country getting ready for a great boating season on our full lakes and reservoirs.

      The thing about Mulvaney is not just the pretense of being a woman, it’s the insulting way he does it, making a mockery of womanhood and femininity. Much as the drag queens do, it’s all giggling and high-pitched squeaky voice and general ridicule of women.
