President Trump has been charged with thirty-four felonies by Manhattan prosecutor, Alvin Bragg. His apparent crimes are having a tryst with a porn star, lying about it, paying her hush money, and violating some arcane campaign-finance laws.
Some of the conservative commentators are comparing this indictment to the behavior of a Banana Republic. But this is an insult to Banana Republics. This is the greedy amoral American ruling class using our judicial system and its enforcers – men in Kevlar vests with automatic weapons – to terrorize political opposition.
Yet Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal has intoned “no one is above the law.” This is pious nonsense. Here is who is above the law:
The Ruling Class rapists who flew to Jeffrey Epstein’s Virgin Island hang out. The woman who groomed these young girls for Epstein and his wealthy ruling class pals, Ghislaine Maxwell, is now in jail after being convicted of sex trafficking. Epstein died in prison under suspicious circumstances in which he reportedly hanged himself with a bedsheet (very difficult to do) while two cameras watching his prison cell magically “malfunctioned” and the prison guards overseeing his safety were nowhere to be found. The judge presiding over Maxwell’s case refuses to release the list of the rapists. One wealthy Morgan Stanley executive, Jes Staley, who reportedly enjoyed the charms of the “Disney Princesses” Epstein provided is lawyered up. Yet the corrupt Bragg is giving these rapists a free pass this while harassing Trump for a consensual tryst.
Lois Lerner. The IRS official who illegally harassed conservative political groups while working for President Obama. The corrupt judge overseeing her case refused to release the e-mails proving her malfeasance while the corrupt justice department refused to charge her. She retired with a fat six-figure pension courtesy of the American taxpayer.
The Biden Crime Family. There is now documented evidence that Bank of America facilitated the wire transfers of large sums of money from Chinese energy companies to Biden’s brother, son, and sister. Biden’s son Hunter even received $3,000,000 from the mayor of Moscow. For what? These people know nothing about energy. These are simply bribes.
The billionaires who had money in Silicon Valley Bank (SVB). Any small community bank that engaged in the risky behavior of SVB would have been allowed to go belly up. But the best investment a bank can make is to give large speaking fees to politically-connected bureaucrats. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen received $7,000,000 in speaking fees from the Wall Street Welfare State. She returned the favor by allowing the billionaires to keep all their money even though their deposits exceeded the FDIC limit of $250,000. But laws do not apply to billionaires who pay off corrupt bureaucrats.
The Wall Street grifters who were bailed out in 2008. Goldman Sachs packaged homeowners’ mortgages into risky bonds and sold them to an unsuspecting clients and investment banks who knew they would be bailed out if the housing market tanked. It did and they were. Our grandchildren got the bill while these crooks are tooling around in the private jets and yachts. Not even one of these grifters was every charged with a crime.
Protestors who were paid to destroy cities. Our ruling class cannot stop talking about the horrors of the January 6 attack on the Capitol. But the perpetrators are being charged and imprisoned. Meanwhile, rioters who were destroying the downtowns of Philadelphia, New York City and Denver where not only never charged – they were actually paid money by these cities because of minor injuries at the hands of the police who were trying to prevent these rioters from destroying property.
Hillary Clinton. As Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton received huge donations to the Clinton Foundation from foreign governments in anticipation of her becoming President. These were arranged through her private e-mail servers. When caught, she destroyed her computers’ hard drives, a felony. What happened to her. Absolutely nothing
Pro-abortion activists who harassed Supreme Court justices. It is a crime to harass the house of a Supreme Court justice. But that is exactly what pro-abortion protesters did in order to intimidate justices into not overturning Roe vs Wade (the Supreme Court decision of 1973 that legalized abortion). But Attorney General Merrick Garland refused to enforce this law, endangering the lives of the justices.
Michael Byrd. The Capitol Police officer who shot and killed an unarmed 35-year-old woman, Ashli Babbitt, during the January 6th Capitol invasion. Not only was he exonerated, but like Lois Lerner, he will be enjoying a fat pension courtesy of the American taxpayers.
America’s ruling class wears this corruption with tremendous pride and revels that it has the power to thwart Rule of Law without repercussions. There is no attempt to hide their contempt for President Trump and his hard-core supporters.
They have no rights. They can be shot and harassed at will. Young lower middle-class women from fly-over land can be raped with impunity. Money can be printed to bail out their bad speculative investments and the bill given to future generations.
Will they get away with thus? Almost certainly. Our billionaire class has used COVID as an excuse to create a system of harvesting ballots in swing states making it almost impossible for a populist like Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis to win. With the presidency in hand, our ruling class can unleash people like Janet Yellen, Alvin Bragg, Merrick Garland, Lois Lerner, and Michael Byrd to bail out the super-rich, allow our ruling class to rape young girls and terrorize anyone who gets in their way.
