Anti-Trump Media Lose it Over Trump’s Likely Senate Acquittal
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Big Media’s anti-Trump’s jihad nears its formal end.
Perhaps a Dem orchestrated Alfred Hitchcock ending will follow his likely acquittal. More on this below.
Calling Trump “a danger to democracy” in America ignores that it exists in fantasy form alone, the real thing banned from inception.
Big Media bemoaned the likely outcome of Trump’s politicized show trial, the NYT saying:
If acquitted, he “could foment still more violence (sic) if not barred from running for office again (sic).”
Violence is what both right wings of the US war party prioritize at home and abroad — an agenda the Times and other Big Media wholeheartedly endorse.
The early January Capitol Hill rent-a-mob was anti-Trump, not the other way around.
The Times revealed former constitutional law professor/undemocratic Dem Rep. Jamie Raskin’s abhorrence of the rule of law by his litany of bald-faced Big Lies about Capitol Hill events on January 6 — saying:
“(I)s there any political leader in this room who believes that if he’s ever allowed by the Senate to get back into the Oval Office, Donald Trump would stop inciting violence to get his way (sic)?”
“Would you bet the lives of more police officers on that (sic)?”
“Would you bet the safety of your family on that (sic)?”
“Would you bet the future of your democracy on that (sic)?”
Would any respectable parent let their son or daughter study under Raskin or others as abhorrent of the rule of law if attended law school?
Instead of wanting Trump held accountable for a legitimate offense, undemocratic Dems in cahoots with other US dark forces framed Trump.
Now they want him convicted for what he had nothing to do with.
WaPo matched the Times insolence and arrogance, repeating the Big Lie claim that without Trump’s Senate crucifixion, he’ll be free to do again what he didn’t do on Capitol Hill.
Dems in cahoots with other anti-Trump dark forces stole Election 2020 for Biden.
They staged a US Reichstag fire false flag on Capitol Hill to blame Trump for their own lawbreaking.
They more greatly shamed the nation than already.
The US isn’t a normal country run by law-abiding officials.
It’s the equivalent of an out-of-control mad dog in the animal world.
The Times, WaPo, and likeminded media lying machines want Trump and others on their hit list denied their constitutional rights.
They support, endorse and promote what freedom loving people and adherents to the rule of law abhor.
If Trump is acquitted of the phony charge against him — what’s highly likely but not certain — Dems have an alternate plan in mind to crucify him.
According to undemocratic Dem majority leader Schumer, they may invoke the 14th Amendment to bar him from holding public office again.
It authorizes Congress to bar someone who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the US from holding public office.
How they’ll try justifying what’s unjustifiable if Trump is acquitted of inciting insurrection — the most likely outcome of sham Senate proceedings against him — is unclear.
The Fifth Amendment’s Double Jeopardy clause prohibits repeat prosecutions for the same offense.
What Schumer, Raskin, and other undemocratic Dems call “the gravity of what happened,” Trump had nothing to do with.
Acquittal by the Senate will formally exonerate him of the phony charge that never should have been made in the first place.
According to Law Professor Jonathan Turley, the case presented by Dems against Trump is “emotionally charged but legally incomplete.”
“To convict,” evidence of intent is required.
Without it — the hard truth of the matter — “the Trump team (can) hammer away at…reckless rhetoric used by Democrats, including members of the ‘jury.’ ”
The case against Trump by Dems was “long on emotions and short on evidence.”
Trump’s acquittal should be automatic.
If things turn out this way, what’s highly likely, Dems aren’t likely to go quietly into that good night.
They may unjustifiably go at Trump by invoking the 14th Amendment with other dirty tricks in mind.
The rule law never interferes with diabolical aims sought by US dark forces.
One way or the other, their war on Trump will likely continue long after Senate proceedings end.
Censuring him is another option.
