Is Biden giving Brittney Griner special treatment?
There are hundreds of other Americans who could be called ‘wrongfully detained’

... it sure seems like Griner benefited more from being a black, lesbian athlete married to another woman in a tough midterm year than anything approaching right or wrong, never mind the geopolitics setting free an arms dealer who sought to harm innocent Americans. ...

The point is not to see Brittney Griner suffer; it’s to ask what makes her case special enough to warrant the designation “wrongfully detained” and the offer of a lopsided prison swap.

During my State Department career, I visited hundreds of American prisoners abroad, from celebrities and white-collar criminals dealing with multi-millions of dollars at issue to near-homeless Americans trying to make a quick drug score. Not a single one of them felt he was “rightfully detained” in every sense; most felt their sentences were too long given the offenses they committed. But I was under strict and standing orders not to advocate for any of them, to allow the host country process to play out as it would.

What makes Brittney Griner more special than Lieutenant Alkonis or Marc Fogel or my hundreds of cases, Mr. Biden? Will they have to wait in a foreign prison for some future election cycle when it is their peer group a future president seeks to impress?

Democrat judge mysteriously takes over Paul Pelosi arraignment
How about that…

Elsewhere, the Fox News show Jesse Watters Primetime dropped the bombshell that Pelosi’s arraignment judge had stepped down and was subsequently replaced. The replacement was Monique Langhorne, a Democrat who used to work in the District Attorney’s office. ...

Watters said of Langhorne, “She’s very well-connected, she was appointed to a special advisory board by Gavin Newsom too, so I mean this is totally deck stacking if I’ve ever seen it.”

Of all of the things people can expect for the Pelosi family, a fair trial is certainly not one of them.

No, it ain't crises that get a President impeached - it is going after a politicians corruption. Going after corruption scares crooks like Pelosi, Romney, and Biden, along with the whole collection of Dems and RINOs.

If a legislature passes laws sanctioning actions A, B, C, and D as crimes, then it’s not up to the district attorney to say “I will only enforce A and B.” He doesn’t have that right or responsibility. ...

All across the country, however, Justice Democrats have said they will not prosecute whole classes of crimes as a matter of principle. In doing so, they are acting as one-man legislatures. That’s true whether they are elected or appointed. They are still executive officials and are not authorized to ignore whole classes of duly passed laws.

DeSantis nailed that point, making an effective argument that Warren was guilty of exactly this kind of overreach. That’s a serious violation if we are to remain a country of laws, not men, where our government at all levels is grounded in the separation of powers between the executive, legislative, and judicial branches.

How much do you want to bet that if we protested on the home street of the judge that signed off on the Trump raid, the DOJ would all of a sudden remember it’s illegal to do that.

Did you know that the IRS only audits Americans who live in RED States?

Large swaths of the country are left untouched and unmolested by federal power — as long as they consistently deliver for the Democrat party.

See the east coast, upper Midwest, PA, New York & Illinois!?!?

The “National Issues Survey” of more than 1,000 likely 2022 general election voters, conducted between July 24-28 by the Trafalgar Group in partnership with Convention of States Action, found that 79.3% of Americans believe that the United States has a two-tiered justice system, with one set of laws for political insiders and another for average Americans. Notably, large majorities in both parties agreed with the idea. ...

“What we’re seeing reflected strongly in these numbers is the sentiment that ‘There is no equal justice in America’ has become an almost universally-held opinion,” Convention of States President Mark Meckler said in a statement responding to the survey. “But it’s not just opinion, it’s fact. And it’s a dangerous fact in our Constitutional Republic, one which requires mostly voluntary compliance with the rule of law to succeed. In a system where those in government get away with virtually anything, why should anyone follow the law? Until public servants are once again held accountable for their misdeeds, the distrust of and disdain for government officials will continue to grow in a dangerous manner. Perhaps early Americans had the right idea when they publicly tarred and feathered officials who abused their positions. Fear of getting caught and being held accountable is a necessary component for a successful system of public service.”

The survey comes just one day after the FBI conducted a raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. The raid prompted backlash from Republicans in Congress, who cited it as evidence of the two-tiered system of justice in America.

“Our two-tiered justice system is becoming more obvious and outrageous,” Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) told Fox News in an interview Tuesday.

Good that most people recognize the problem.

Now to solve it, Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, and Pelosi must go to prison, for starters.

Many of those arrested after January 6 are still being held without bail because they are such a threat to America’s security. The threats must be secret because most of them who have pleaded guilty were charged with trespassing. The ones still in jail must be the really bad ones. We don’t know because even Republican lawmakers don’t seem to be concerned about what’s happening to American citizens on American soil!

Does anyone remember that Hillary Clinton had a private server for her government email? Or that she deleted over 30,000 emails that were under subpoena? How about the Clinton Foundation, which the Clintons used like their personal bank? Clinton staff members were given immunity; what exactly was it they received immunity from? They weren’t even questioned about Clinton’s antics. Hillary used BleachBit to scrub her computers of any possible incriminating evidence.

Meanwhile, the Hunter Biden investigation seems to be stuck. The FBI had Hunter’s laptop a year before the election. Over 30 months later, it still hasn’t been able to find any incriminating evidence. I sure hope it’s not spending time watching the creepy Hunter Biden porn shows.

The New York Post, however, has found tons of compelling information and written story after story on everything the FBI can’t seem to find. Maybe someone at the bureau could pick up a copy of Laptop From Hell by Miranda Divine and develop a few clues as to where to look. Even couch potato Brian Stelter at CNN discovered recently there’s a laptop that could be a problem for Joe Biden if he runs for reelection. We tried to tell him that 20 months ago.

The abuse of America’s justice system should be of concern for all Americans, even Democrats. Apparently, the Left is okay with this abuse of the Rule of Law and equal justice under the law as long as it is used against conservatives. Some of you Trump haters in DC need to wake up before it’s you they come after. Remember, power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. It’s already begun.

Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz is demanding to know why the FBI has never raided the homes of Hillary Clinton and her associates.

While questioning the FBI’s raid of President Donald Trump’s Florida home, Mar-a-Lago, Dershowitz said it constitutes “a double standard of justice” because the feds did not raid Hillary Clinton or former Bill Clinton administration National Security Advisor Sandy Berger.

In an op-ed for The Hill, Dershowitz slammed Joe Biden’s FBI for raiding a former U.S. president.

“The decision by the Justice Department to conduct a full-scale morning raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home does not seem justified, based on what we know as of now,” he writes.

“If it is true that the basis of the raid was the former president’s alleged removal of classified material from the White House, that would constitute a double standard of justice.

“There were no raids, for example, on the homes of Hillary Clinton or former Clinton administration national security adviser Sandy Berger for comparable allegations of mishandling official records in the recent past.

“Previous violations of the Presidential Records Act typically have been punished by administrative fines, not criminal prosecution.

"Nobody is above the law," unless you do sketchy business with Chinese companies, film yourself smoking crack, lie on a 4473 firearm form, and are involved in a Russian human trafficking ring. If you do that, you got a ride to your vacation on Air Force One today.

"Nobody is above the law," unless you lie on a FISA form to spy on your political opponents or lie to the FBI to justify illegal spying. If you do that, you get your law license restored in good standing and acquitted by a jury of your donors.

"Nobody is above the law," unless you BleachBit a private server with classified government emails on it after they had been subpoenaed. You'll be let off and sell merch based on it a few years later.

"Nobody is above the law," unless you get held in contempt of Congress for lying about running guns to Mexico and your role in targeting conservatives with audits. You'll get off scot free but you'll get charged for it if you worked for Donald Trump

"Nobody is above the law," unless you cross the border illegally or burn down a city while wearing a BLM shirt. You'll be flown to the city of your choice and have your charges dropped or reduced.

"Nobody is above the law," unless you get caught lying to Congress about domestic spying, leak unverified dossiers, work with Democrat operatives to fabricate the Russia hoax, and frame/entrap your political opponents as Russian agents. You'll get a career on cable news.

"Nobody is above the law," unless you use your position to Congress to insider trade or lie to Congress about your office funding dangerous research at a Chinese lab that covid originated from.

"Nobody is above the law," unless you're a criminal in an American city run by a Soros-funded prosecutor. You can commit as many violent crimes as you want and get let back on the street the very next day.

"Nobody is above the law," unless you conduct illegal protest outside the homes of justices, firebomb pro-life pregnancy centers, or murder fully formed babies at an abortion clinic in DC.
The DOJ won't even investigate you.

"Nobody is above the law," unless Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell trafficked little girls to you.
We'll never even know who you are

Imagine the backlash if while he was in office, Trump had Obama's home raided and AOC’s phone seized.

Are you tired of the double standard?

How corrupt is the FBI? Two days after they raid Donald Trump’s private residence, Hunter Biden, whose laptop proving multiple felonies the FBI has had for years, hops on Air Force 1 for a family vacation.

I love the fact that Hillary Clinton LITERALLY wears a communist pantsuit. She, and communist leaders in North Korea and China are literally the only people with that fashion sense. It's such bizarre clothing.

Should Biden’s Justice Department move ahead with charges against Trump, leading to a trial and prosecution, it will deepen the politicized divide in a country already riven by partisanship. The FBI and current director Christopher Wray would face significant scrutiny — for good reason.

The message would be loud and clear: Democrats like Hillary Clinton can get away with violating laws, but Republicans who commit the same acts cannot. It would tear the very fabric of the FBI and DoJ apart.

Under Biden’s FBI, no one from Epstein’s client list has been arrested, Hunter still walks free, and we never did find out who the SCOTUS leak was - but we know what’s in Melania Trump’s closet.

For people not named Trump (a key giveaway that this is all political), the city of New York assesses a value to each property for tax purposes. Nearly every property owner in NYC believes his or her assessed value is too high and pushes back, to the point where these disputes are not even handled by a court but through a tax commission grievance process. Owners want a lower value to pay less tax, except when they approach a bank for the equivalent of a refi loan, when they want their property to seem more expensive to secure a bigger loan at a better rate. It is the bank that then decides what a property is worth to them as collateral, via their own due diligence.

It’s always complicated, as much art as science. Beyond the usual valuation factors of location, location, location, some buildings in New York are iconic, or famous for their brand name (cough, cough, “Trump”), what history they represent, etc. Some just have nice views. Sometimes the bank is generous because in return for the loan they’ll secure some other business of value to them.

Over-valuing/under-valuing real estate in New York City is sport, but as a crime is so much not ado about nothing it is not going to send anyone to jail. Imagine the yawns as a jury listens to forensic accountants explain Trump’s tiered exemptions and how their value is subtracted from the DOF assessed value to calculate a taxable value which is then multiplied by the current tax rate for the specific assigned property class. Next session they’ll talk about somewhat sketchy easements Trump obtained going back to when Mayor Koch was in charge in the 1980s.

The jury will quickly discover the regulations governing how one values a New York property are dense. Built into the law is an automatic fudge allowing the same property to have both a high market value and a lower asset value. Problems are sorted out as civil matters and usually settled with the city sending out a bill, especially if the bank is not claiming fraud, only the DA, as in Trump’s case.

And in the end, what? The lawsuit seeks to permanently bar the Trump family members named from serving in officer or director positions in any corporation in New York State. The attorney general also seeks to bar the former president and the Trump Organization from entering into any New York real estate acquisitions for five years, and to take back all financial benefits obtained through the allegedly fraudulent practices, estimated to total $250 million.

None of those things, even if the suit if fully successful, is likely to have an effect on Candidate Trump, and none would prevent him from running for president. Trump merely needs to re-incorporate in another state, maybe business-friendly Florida, to restart operations.

The Democrats’ plan to find Trump guilty of something, anything, seems to be coming to its own sad ending. They have tried to turn belief that Trump is evil into a crime — Emoluments Clause, Russiagate, impeachments I and II, Stormy Daniels, obstruction of justice, and incitement.

On the sidelines were extra-judicial attempts connected to the 25th Amendment, having doctors who never examined the man declaring Trump mentally ill, and even accusations of incest. The Southern District of New York previously failed to indict Trump’s children and failed to prosecute Paul Manafort. E. Jean Carroll’s rape-cum-defamation case is so egregiously lousy that even the Biden DOJ took Trump’s side. The convictions of Trump associates lawyer Michael Cohen and accountant Allen Weisselberg did not touch the principal himself.

The SDNY brought no charges. Early this year, the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg, instructed prosecutors to halt their effort to seek an indictment of Trump. It looks like Letitia James is the only one left. She can turn off the lights on her way out.
