So I read the articles (1, 2, 3) about Sussman being acquitted. It’s a long sordid tale. The judge is a colleague of Sussman’s from the Clinton White House. His wife is a lawyer that defended the FBI agent that was part of the Russia-gate scam that spawned the Durham investigation. And the judge also made a point of seating several jury members that were big donors to the Hillary Clinton campaign.
The acquittal proves the point that no one will receive actual justice in a DC court. What will occur will be machine justice. Nothing is clearer than that the Deep State owns DC lock, stock and barrel. The only way to “fix” the federal government is to draft legislation to allow the president to fire anyone in the executive branch for any reason that he may care to come up with. Short of that, the Deep State owns this country.
I guess I already knew this inside but it’s gut wrenching when circumstances prove it to be true beyond a shadow of a doubt. I guess the only question that’s still open is whether Durham is completely a puppet or whether he will try to avoid this set-up for his ongoing cases. Surely there must be a way to have the trials moved to a fair venue where something beside insiders will be the judge and jury. Couldn’t he pick Oklahoma or Idaho?
Well, now I’m just daydreaming. This reinforces all the worst things I have heard about our justice system. This is right up there with that other bozo of a judge who spent years torturing General Flynn for a trumped-up charge. And it goes along with the January 6th judges who have allowed defendants to languish for over a year in prison over a trespassing charge.
Equal justice under the law is supposedly the proudest claim that America makes before the world. But that is shown to be an obvious fallacy. There is one law for the common people and an altogether different law for friends of the regime. If we ever get a truly powerful majority in the Senate, we should use it to impeach judges. There are a goodly number of them who have proven themselves corrupt and impeachment is the minimum penalty they should have to pay. A good stiff prison sentence would be even more fitting.
So, when and if we regain the Presidency and the Congress the program that should be initiated is to reform the executive branch. The ability to fire employees is basic but in addition, the practice of allowing administrative departments to dictate law must be curtailed. The EPA cannot decide whether you can heat your home with gas or oil without Congress writing the law. They should be able to recommend it and they should be charged with enforcing it but they can’t be judge, jury and executioner anymore. It’s un-American and it’s proof that we’ve become slaves to the bureaucracy.
If Trump or DeSantis gets in next, he better make taming the Deep State his first order of business. If he doesn’t, then he might as well stay home and just let the Democrats continue putting nails in our coffin. It won’t make a bit of difference otherwise.
