The US government is illegitimate because it does not enforce the law impartially
You can't be a chronic Pharaonic without Caligulan asymmetry in your non-justice system.
The federal government is illegitimate because it doesn't follow the Constitution. That's the contract between citizens and the government, they broke it, so they should be disbanded.They have no right to have an FBI, an NSA, a CIA - they don't even have the right to have a standing army. They violate all of the 10 first amendments at this point. It should just be disbanded entirely.
How exactly would the government be 'disbanded,' and what would replace it?
Maybe another Constitution that's a mirror image of the original with the words added "We the people ... and we really, really mean it this time?"
We don't need to change our Constitution, we just have to fucking enforce it.
The future Constitution must be very clear, written for 4th grade comprehension,

You may have noticed the timing of this new werewolf hunt has a near-magical synchronicity with oddly identical circumstances shimmering around the current occupant of the White House — another case of misplaced official papers. Unlike the Donald Trump werewolf hunt, the “Joe Biden” classified-docs-in-a-garage case is moving at the speed of an Amtrak train with a broken Johnson rod stuck on a sidetrack outside Joppatowne, Maryland, in a snowstorm on Christmas Eve. But those purloined classified papers may be the least of “Joe Biden’s” concerns. Why, just the other day a single “whistleblower” document turned up in the House Oversight Committee’s SCIF — a special room for the performance of secret rituals — suggesting that “JB” was on the receiving end of $5 million gratis from some generous soul connected to a Ukrainian natgas company. That payday, for services left murky, when “JB” happened to be Barack Obama’s vice-president, came around the same period as yet other multi-million-dollar gift parcels from China, Russia, and Romania flew into a long list of companies operated by “JB’s” son Hunter, with no known business other than receiving large sums of money and then writing checks to various Biden family members. “Well Sonofabitch…!” as the president himself once said apropos of legal doings in Ukraine. You understand, the US Department of Justice — the outfit that employs werewolf hunter Jack Smith — got a hold of that “Joe Biden” Ukraine “whistleblower” receipt a good three years ago, and somehow AG Merrick Garland has been unable to take any action on it since then. It’s been mouldering in some remote FBI file, out of sight and mind until Rep. James Comer (R-KY) subpoenaed it. Apparently, not even the most preliminary inquiry. Nothing to see there. May have been a shortage of federal attorneys not already assigned to the odious Jan 6 “insurrection” incident that so scarily endangered our democracy. Why, they are still rounding up suspects from sea to shining sea for that treasonous caper, so deep, broad, and dark was the conspiracy! Springing the werewolf trap on Mr. Trump in the Miami federal district court is sure to intoxicate the, let’s say, thirty percent of the public gripped by lycanthropic hallucinations. You can hear cheers ring out in Santa Monica and the Hamptons today as the “blue” demographic prepares to watch the glorious ordeal of Donald Trump’s legal vivisection. They are forgetting one thing, though: werewolves have powers unknown to mere men who hunt them. Trapping a werewolf is one thing, but holding onto him is another. There are seventeen full moons between now and the next election. A lot can happen, especially among the, let’s say, seventy percent of the public, who disapprove of all this werewolf craziness. The hunters might even find themselves flipped, horrifyingly, into the hunted.
@VivekGRamaswamyWe can’t have two tiers of justice: one for Trump, another for Biden. One for Assange, another for Manning. One for BLM/Antifa, another for peaceful protesters on Jan 6.I never thought we’d see the day when the U.S. President deputizes the DOJ to arrest his lead rival in the middle of an election. Obama shamefully tried to deputize the FBI to infiltrate Trump’s 2016 campaign, but they’re leaving nothing to chance this time around: the federal police state is outright arresting Trump.This is an affront to every citizen: we cannot devolve into a banana republic where the party in power uses police force to arrest its political opponents. It’s hypocritical for the DOJ to selectively prosecute Trump but not Biden. There are also serious legal questions about the President’s power to declassify documents and the potential illegality of the over-classification of federal documents in the first place. That’s for the courts to decide, but we the people decide who governs this nation. It would be much easier for me to win this election if Trump weren’t in the race, but I stand for principles over politics. I commit to pardon Trump promptly on January 20, 2025 and to restore the rule of law in our country.5:08 PM · Jun 8, 20232.9M Views
We don't know what Trump would have done.
I’ve been wary of writing about Donald Trump’s indictments.You know I don’t like the guy. My anger at him has already wrongfooted me once. The Stormy Daniels “hush money” case from Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg turned out to be a steaming pile of dung, a half-baked legal theory based on testimony of a convicted felon.But what happened yesterday demands comment.As you may have heard, federal prosecutors indicted Trump on seven charges related to his mishandling of classified documents. Or, as Trump likes to call it, the “Boxes Hoax.”Normally, the legal process exists in a box of its own. The system goes to great lengths to divorce criminal cases from their broader context and determine the guilt or innocence of a defendant on specific charges. A trial is not an exercise in weighing character, much less a job interview.But this time the broader context cannot be ignored.We are still 17 months from the 2024 election, but Trump has - at a minimum - a near-even chance of returning to the Oval Office. ...Inflation, trillion-dollar deficits, the hype and failure of the mRNAs, the hysterics around climate change, the collapse of the southern border, the low-grade anarchy in blue cities like San Francisco, the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan - those are just the specifics.The bigger problem for Uncle Joe is the broad perception that he’s just a puppet on fraying strings, held up by the elite media and captive to the everything should be free, especially if someone else is paying for it wing of the Democratic Party.The new federal indictment against Trump remains sealed for now.But it is surely much stronger than Alvin Bragg’s embarrassment in New York. (It can’t be weaker, unless it’s just “BAD TRUMP BAD GO JAIL” scrawled in crayon on construction paper.)Nonetheless, we already know the new charges overlap with the Manhattan indictment in the most crucial way: Trump is accused of committing crimes of process, not substance. ...Then there’s Hunter.As much as the media would like to pretend otherwise, Hunter Biden is not a minor figure. He is the son of the President of the United States. The two men are very close.And the questions about Hunter’s conduct cannot be waved away. Strong evidence has emerged that when Joe Biden was vice president, Hunter tried to sell access to him to foreign companies - including one essentially controlled by the Chinese government. ...Hunter has lived on the fringes of the law for much of his adult life. For years, he had two very expensive habits, cocaine and prostitutes.Thus he needed money and didn’t worry too much where it came from. Lately he’s been selling “art” - art that looks like it came from a Pinot’s Palette paint-and-sip class - to anonymous “collectors” for five- and six-figure prices.Is it money laundering if the money doesn’t even get clean?Along the way, Hunter cheated on his taxes. I feel confident using the word cheated, because when he was caught he didn’t fight but instead paid what he owed.The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Internal Revenue Service have been investigating Hunter for almost a half-decade now, long before Donald Trump even took anything classified to Mar-a-Lago.The details of what the investigation have revealed are well known, and the case appears strong - at least as strong as the case against Trump. None other than the Washington Post - not exactly Newsmax - reported that the agents on the case believe Biden should be prosecuted...To me, anyway, both those crimes look far more serious than what Trump is accused of doing (though, again, we cannot be sure until the federal indictment is unsealed next week).So when Donald Trump and Republicans complain about the weaponization of the justice system against him… it’s hard not to feel like they have a point.
The DOJ’s differential prosecution just got even more wildly obvious. For one example, look how differently the DOJ treated classified information mishandling democrats like Hilary and Biden.Hilary and Biden were treated one hundred percent different than Trump.Every legit Republican elected official is sitting in the same sinking boat with Trump. If democrats can do this to Trump, they can do it to anybody. If it isn’t stopped in its tracks this time, right now, then Republicans are destined to become a footnote of history, since from now on they’ll have to fake being an opposition party, rolling over whenever democrats poke them, out of fear of being Trumped.On the very same day the New York Times celebrated Trump’s indictment — while forgetting all about the Alvin Bragg indictment, and forgetting to comment on how differently Trump is being treated than others, and without even wondering if an Administration prosecuting its campaign opponent might be politically motivated — on that very same day, the New York Times buried the Joe Biden bribe story under the chicken coop, which is a story that is 1,000 times more explosive and newsworthy than the story about the latest trumped-up Trump persecution.Friends, the democrats have built themselves an edifice of injustice rivaling the Biblical Tower of Babel. They think they’re gods. Merrick Garland thinks he can throw down lightning bolts of selective justice like Zeus’ elderly grandmother. This new indictment will — I believe — be one lawless brick too high. I think it will be the brick that breaks the back of America’s patience.
Democrat President Joe Biden’s White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has been caught violating a law intended to prevent federal employees from using their offices to influence elections.Jean-Pierre reportedly violated the law when she repeatedly called out “mega MAGA Republicans” before the 2022 midterms, a government watchdog agency said.The Office of Special Counsel determined that Jean-Pierre’s rhetoric related to Republican candidates violated the Hatch Act.“Because Ms. Jean‐Pierre made the statements while acting in her official capacity, she violated the Hatch Act prohibition against using her official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with or affecting the result of an election,” Ana Galindo‐Marrone, who leads the agency’s Hatch Act Unit, said.But they are letting Jean‐Pierre off the hook rather than hold her to account.“The Office of Special Counsel decided to close this matter without further action,” Galindo‐Marrone said,
