THE MORTAL STORM
"Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it." -Joseph Goebbels -
Since our country's founding, seeking the truth, telling the truth, and preventing or avoiding injustice are all prominent and well-established traditions in our country; those traditions are inextricably related; seeking and obtaining Justice and preventing injustice depend on seeking and arriving at the truth. Put another way, seeking Justice and preventing injustice are founded on fact.
Today, America is at a crossroads where the public trust in the American Justice system is eroding and hanging perilously by a thread. The betrayal by the Attorney General (AG), Prosecutors of the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of selective enforcement of our laws against its citizenry and hiding exculpatory evidence from defendants in criminal investigations has undermined the Rule of Law.
Our legal foundation is founded upon the Rule of Law, Equal Justice under the Law, that no one is above the Law, and that every person is subject to the Law, versus those under an oligarchy, monarchy, or dictatorship where the rulers are above the Law.
The real threat to our democracy is the Biden administration's violating the Rule of Law by misusing and abusing the state's political power to weaponize the DOJ/FBI/Intelligence Community (IC) in criminalizing political differences of those who oppose their radical agenda.
Today the country is divided along partisan and ideological lines promoted by the "cancel culture," the media, the Left, and the radical Democrats' fixation on all things Trump, where 93% of all media reports are negative, false, or attributed to anonymous unverified sources.
This article aims to warn all Americans of the five-alarm fire alarm that our country's house is on fire and, if the fire is ignored, will destroy the whole foundation of our country's legal and Judicial structure.
Today our country faces a deadly storm where the search for the truth is under attack; hiding evidence and lying has become the new standard in replacing the facts in the public domain. You can't have Justice if you're relying on lies.
This hiding of the truth from the American public is illustrated by promoting blatant lies using the big lie theory and fear tactics in the following:
Russian Collusion Hoax.
Hunter Biden's Laptop was Russian disinformation.
Covid originated with animals, not a virus that escaped from the Wuhan lab.
January 6 was an "insurrection" (''versus a protest," only a part of which got out of hand') - the most significant threat since Pearl Harbor indicated the protesters were domestic terrorists.
Attorney General Garland, President Biden, and the media implied that Officer Sicknick and four Capital police officers died on January 6th.
Democrat House managers alleged "armed insurrection" based upon the false assertion (media reporting) that Capital Police Officer (Sicknick) was struck in the head with a fire extinguisher and that some of those that entered the capitol were armed.
The John Durham Special Counsel investigation court filings exposed the Russian hoax, the recent release of the Twitter files on COVID exposing the corruption in the Medical Scientific community, and the collusion of government, Big Tech, and the media in de-censoring and suppression of free speech; the videotapes of the event on January 6 are the factual documentary evidence that exposes the systemic corruption, weaponization, and politicization within the system.
These efforts to suppress the truth from the American public have resulted in the polarization of the two-party system as exposing a well-designed plan to destroy Trump, the Make America Great Again movement, and the Republican party to transform the country through the radical elements of the democratic party.
For the last six years, the country has been subjected to the biggest lie and fear disinformation campaign as part of a plan to destroy the country. First, to cover up the criminality of those involved in the biggest sedition coup in American history and those in financing the gain of function research at the Wuhan Lab that resulted in the greatest self-inflicted tragedy in medical history resulting in the death of millions of people around the world.
The best illustration of how the Left, the Biden administration, radicalized Democratic party, supported by a compliant media, use the tactic of accusing the other side of that which they are guilty of is to compare the actions of the Congressional members of the Trump Impeachment trial, January 6th Committee, with that of the current Oversight Committee.
Second Trump Impeachment Trial / January 6th Committee
The January 6th committee used the same techniques as the second impeachment trial: deceptively edited tweets, selective witness testimony, and failure to release exculpatory witness testimony and videos of the events on January 6. In addition, selectively edited video segments showing the mob breaching the capitol gave a one-sided media production portraying the public that an insurrection occurred and that all the 1000 protestors arrested were domestic terrorists.
Democratic House managers in the second Impeachment Hearings doctored and cherry-picked video segments of President Trump's comments on January 6, 2020, and Charlottesville, alleging he had incited the mob and condoned white supremacists. Yet, the managers left out in their presentations that "President Trump had addressed the protesters and called on the assembled to march peacefully and patriotically make your voice heard and had condemned White supremacists.
The newly released video footage shows members of the Capitol Police opening up doors and inviting protesters into the Captial building, calmly walking the halls of Congress along with Capital Police officers. The videos refute the insurrection lie promoted by the Biden administration, Attorney General, and January 6th Committee.
Congressional Oversight Committee
Testimony of Michael Shellenberger and Matt Taibbi, the Twitter File messengers, exposed the suppression and censorship by the government, Big Tech, and the media. Yet, during their Congressional testimony, they were attacked by Democratic members of Congress on the Oversight Committee defending censorship by the government.
The primary face of Federal Law is the Attorney General of the United States, Merrick Garland. It is stunning that the AG is objecting to the release of exculpatory evidence of "Brady vs. Maryland" and covering up prosecution misconduct for political reasons.
How could anyone object to releasing all available and relevant information (evidence) necessary to seeking and arriving at the truth, that is, establishing the actual facts about an event, happening, or situation. Especially when releasing that information does not tell foreign enemies anything that should be classified. The only possible objection can be that the opponent removing the information is fearful that the data released or sought to be released will show that their view and narrative of the situation is false, largely false, or false to one degree or another.
Since January 6, 2021, is the basis for a massive prosecution, or collection prosecutions, of hundreds of people of different degrees of involvement and different degrees of culpability, the landmark United States Supreme Court (USSC) case Brady vs. Maryland, 373 U. S. 83 (1963), Applies to the prosecution of each person charged by Federal authorities; in writing the majority opinion (holding) for the USSC Justice William O. Douglas wrote: "We now hold that the suppression by the prosecution of evidence favorable to an accused upon request violates due process where the evidence is material either to guilt or to punishment... Society wins when the guilty are convicted, and criminal trials are fair." This holding established a bedrock principle of American criminal Law.
A defendant's request for "Brady disclosure refers to the holding of the Brady case and the numerous state and federal issues that interpret its requirement that the prosecution discloses material exculpatory evidence to the defense. Exculpatory evidence is "material" if "there is a reasonable probability that his conviction or sentence would have been different had these materials been disclosed. "Brady evidence includes statements of witnesses or physical evidence that conflicts with the prosecution's witnesses and evidence that could allow the defense to impeach the credibility of a prosecution witness.
In United States v. Bagley (1985), the Court narrowed the reach of Brady by stating the suppressed evidence had to be "exculpatory" and "material" for a violation to result in the reversal of a conviction.
Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun wrote in Bagley that "only if there is a reasonable probability that, had the evidence been disclosed to the defense, the result of the proceeding would have been different. A 'reasonable probability' is a probability sufficient to undermine confidence in the outcome."
An example of politically motivated misconduct by the government is the Federal prosecution of General Michael Flynn. Flynn's Lawyer, Sidney Powell, filed a submission with the Court, asserting that the new disclosures demonstrate that Mueller's prosecutors not only pressured Flynn with the possibility of indicting his son; but also secretly assured Flynn's former counsel, the well-connected Washington firm of Covington & Burling (C&B), that Flynn's son would not be prosecuted if Flynn pleaded guilty. This "side deal" (a) was not explicitly memorialized in the formal plea agreement, (b) was not otherwise disclosed to the Court as federal Law requires, and (c) was designed to enable prosecutors to evade their due process obligations in future cases.
The court filing produced documentary evidence Email documents between Flynn's first legal team and the Prosecutors hiding that they wouldn't stipulate in Flynn's plea agreement that they won't prosecute the son. Powell claimed the primary condition of the plea agreement was fraudulent between the defense attorney and the prosecution.
The government rushed to judgment in arresting over 1000 defendants in the January 6th protest that got out of hand. Instead of reviewing the videotapes, they overcharged everyone with charges as if everyone had taken part in the violence, putting undo pressure on the defense attorneys to plea their clients to lesser charges. The videos show Capitol Police unlocking doors, inviting protesters into the building, and calmly walking the halls of Congress. Based on the evidence and actions of the government, it could be said that all the defendants were painted with the same brush to fit a political narrative that the protest was a violent insurrection and that the participants were terrorists. Even those none of the protesters were armed. The lies that four police officers were killed that day were false, as the facts show the only people to die were two female protesters, one shot by a Police Lt and the other as a result of being hit with a baton by a female police officer.
The classic exculpatory material under "Brady vs. Maryland" surfaced long after it should have been disclosed by the government to the defense and the defendants early in the case; it would be shown different levels of criminal involvement vs. non-criminal protest involvement. The failure of the government to disclose exculpatory to the defense and the defendants is a significant violation of state and federal law.
The public needs to know that this isn't about Trump; it's about you and your civil liberties and due process; if they can use the powers of the state to target and destroy Trump, then they can use it against you, its citizenry. The defense lawyers must file court motions on their client's behalf, asking those who have not gone to trial to dismiss the charges and those who took pleas to be vacated for prosecution misconduct in withholding Brady material from the defense attorneys.
A 1940 classic movie called "The Mortal Storm" exemplifies the salient point of the article as to the threat and dangers of the state's misuse of and abuse of its power. The movie centers on Hitler's rise to power in 1933. The film shows how the state weaponized and politicized the German legal system by criminalizing political differences and thoughts contrary to the state.
The movie applies today as it illustrates the same tactics of accusing others of their actions, selectively using the Law, suppression, and censorship by the Biden Administration, in misusing the state's power in criminalizing political differences and thoughts contrary to those of the state. It even has a scene where scientific fact is denied.
For the radical Left and those elements within the Democratic party to play the Big Lie theory about their political opponents to score political points to stay in power by dividing the country using the state's ability to criminalize those they disagree with is destroying the Justice system of this country.
Here is the question for every American and elected official, how do we move forward as a country in restoring the public trust and faith in the Justice system if there is no accountability for those who organized the most significant sedition coup in American history, the Russian hoax?
