Opinion | Furious Judge Stops Mueller Prosecutor Mid-Trial And Torches Him In Front Of Entire Courtroom

Published

on

Paul Manafort’s trial has officially begun. The former campaign manager for President Trump is now being dragged through the legal system for crimes supposedly committed eight years ago and for which there was originally insufficient evidence to convict him on. Oh, and Rod Rosenstein was involved in the case back then as well. He actually exonerated Manafort at the time. The trial is heating up and I may be wrong on this, but it may not pan out the way Mueller has envisioned. Especially if you go by proceedings so far in court.

Manafort is being charged over bank fraud and tax evasion. Those are process crimes that the FBI used to take down Al Capone in his day because they couldn’t get him on anything else. I’m not a fan of Paul Manafort’s, but this is just wrong and should not be allowed. Mueller has strayed far outside of his mandate and this is just retaliation for Manafort not flipping on Trump. Nothing he has been charged with is connected to President Trump, his campaign or the specious charge of collusion with the Russians. Collusion won’t even come up during the trial. The left must be devastated over that, but never fear… Mueller will do his level best to burn Manafort at the stake for the crime of being associated with Trump.

Mueller tried everything with Manafort. He raided his home in the pre-dawn hours and finally got him on witness-tampering, which was pretty flimsy if you ask me. He then had Manafort put in solitary confinement. Manafort did not break. They tried similar techniques on Michael Flynn. I’m no fan of his either, but they bankrupted the guy when he would not flip on Trump. Then they got him to admit to something he didn’t do by threatening to imprison his son. These are mob tactics and I don’t get why they are being allowed here. They definitely are not working with Manafort who will not cut a plea deal. CBS News reporter Paula Reid tweeted, “JUST IN: No deal. Manafort attorney Kevin Downing tells me ‘No chance!’ his client will cooperate with Special Counsel in order to avoid trial today.”

I’m also beginning to sense that Mueller came up short on the judge who is overseeing the case. The judge was furious and torched Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors after they tried to attack Manafort for living an “extravagant lifestyle.” Since when did it become an actual crime to be wealthy in this country and spend your money however you like as long as it’s legal? Manafort lived an “extravagant lifestyle” fueled by “secret income” that he earned from his lobbying in the Ukraine, said Uzo Asonye, a prosecutor who is working on the case with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team. Manafort became wealthy from the “cash spigot” that came from working for his “golden goose in Ukraine,” former President Viktor Yanukovych, Asonye said. That may be true, but again… prove how he broke the law.

The prosecutors against Manafort indicated in their opening statement that they planned to put his wealth on trial as a key element of their case, arguing he funded his lavish spending habits by breaking the law. That remains to be seen and ‘social justice’ arguments are not going to fly in this court under this particular judge. Judge T.S. Ellis rapped the prosecutors for the ‘wealth’ argument but good according to Associated Press reporter Erick Tucker, “Interesting moment occurred in government opening statement as prosecutor rattled off Manafort’s life of luxury. Judge interrupted: ‘It isn’t a crime to have a lot of money and be profligate in your spending,’” he tweeted. Good for that judge.

If Manafort has actually broken the law and they can tie it to Russian oligarchs, then prove it. Make your case, but knock off the ‘wealth’ drivel. I understand that the judge also has forbidden the use of the word ‘oligarch’ in this case. That made me laugh. Manafort’s team laid the blame on his partner who has already copped a plea in the case, Rick Gates. They always go for the weakest link and just because he confessed, doesn’t necessarily make him guilty either. We saw that with Flynn as I noted before. “He had his hand in the cookie jar,” Zehnle said of Gates. Exactly, what ‘cookie jar’ is that? You mean because he was being paid by Russians? Okay, but how was that illegal? I’m not saying it wasn’t as Zehnle is on Mannafort’s team, but facts rather than rhetoric would be nice in a court of law.

Zehnle argued in his opening statement that Manafort never intended to deceive the IRS or anyone else and noted how prosecutors barely mentioned Gates, who he said was the government’s “star witness,” even though Gates pleaded guilty to lying to the government. Gee, that was what they got Flynn on. Deja vu all over again. Manafort faces 18 charges, including filing false tax returns, failure to report foreign bank accounts and defrauding banks. Manafort has denied the charges. He faces a maximum sentence of 305 years in prison if convicted on all charges. As I said before, they didn’t have enough to convict him eight years ago, they may not have enough now. We’ll see. At least they haven’t gotten Manafort on gun possession or vagrancy yet like they did Capone. But they are sure going for tax evasion. This is a legalistic farce.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
