A good Good Friday morning, kids. There are a couple of local crime stories that naturally have major implications vis a vis Alvin Bragg and the essentially non-existent criminal justice system in this country. The fact is, there is no criminal justice system in this country. And that is a reflection of the fact that for all intents and purposes, there is no more country. None that I recognize that even bears a passing resemblance to the United States of America.
“Judge, the mother of the victim is in the building, walking down the hallway,” said Christopher Conway of the Bronx DA’s Office.
“What does that have to do with what we’re doing here?” replies Justice Naita Semaj of the county Supreme Court. “I understand you might want her sitting here in the courtroom, but what does that have to do with the actual task at hand?” Which was arraigning Tyresse Minter, 28, in the death of his stepson, Corde Scott, 15. After a lecture from the bench — Semaj snarking on about the prosecutor’s “preference” and how everyone else had made it on time, concluding, “Are you serious?” — they proceeded without the grieving mom.
She arrived at some point, only to flee the courtroom in horror at the judge’s behavior. The defendant pleaded “not guilty,” though he’s confessed to a host of material facts: Corde unquestionably died at his hands — strangled to death as the grown man pinned him in place.
Minter stands charged with manslaughter in the second degree and criminally negligent homicide, both bail-eligible offenses. Just a month before the Jan. 23 death, he was released on parole from a crime in which he shot the victim three times in the back. He has a long record that clearly qualifies him as a persistent violent felony offender and a multiple parole violater. So Conway requested remand — jail or at least substantial bail.
Minter’s defense attorneys — two lawyers from the Bronx Defenders — argued, basically, that the accused hasn’t fled in the months since the crime and has been reporting to his parole officer and doing all his Family Court-ordered programs. They suggested release on his own recognizance. The judge did just that — no bail, just supervised release. Nothing “can lead me to conclude that he is a flight risk,” and “I believe he greatly benefits from some sort of programming.”
Ah, “programming”! That’s surely enough to keep the public safe from a man who lost control sufficiently to kill a kid. This is a judge with contempt for the victim’s survivors, and for the public. Her only concern is for the perp — hoping he can “benefit” from therapy or other “programming.”
It should be noted, and it’s a tragic commentary in and of itself of the state of our nation that I have to write this, that the perp, judge and victim are all black, so the race card element doesn’t even necessarily enter into this incident. But the fact remains that this is not an isolated incident in either the city of New York nor in every major metropolitan area in the nation where, especially since the death while resisting arrest of the criminal Floyd, crime has literally been de-criminalized.
I have no idea where this judge Naita Smegma or whatever her name is went to law school but considering who is teaching at these law schools and more to the point the curricula that is being taught, you can bet your bottom dollar that she and Alvin Bragg, along with most of the judges and prosecutors in NY, DC and perhaps all over the country have the same mindset. Before we get to Bragg, let’s go across the country to San Francisco.
Actor Sara Foster, daughter of legendary musician and producer David Foster, blasted San Francisco’s “liberal” leadership following tech mogul Bob Lee’s violent death in the city earlier this week.
Lee, a 43-year-old father of two who co-founded Cash App, was stabbed to death in San Francisco’s affluent Rincon Hill neighborhood around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, devastating the tech community and raising alarms about surging crime in the city.
Foster, 42, shared a screenshot of The Post’s article about Lee’s final moments before his death on her Instagram story Thursday. In the accompanying photos, a smiling Lee appears with his two daughters.
“I have no words,” she wrote. “SF is a complete s—hole. I am a registered Democrat and feel confident saying liberal politicians are ruining cities.”
“Disgusting. My heart breaks for this family,” she added
Well, the scales have fallen at least off of one of Ms. Foster’s eyes. Even with the recall of Chesa Boudin, the criminals run free in Frisco while the citizenry cower. And more and more of them, under the brainwashing of leftism still stare at their own navels and wonder how they can rid themselves of their white privilege that obviously is the cause of their misery. Feh.
Can Foster be deprogrammed, or does she even want to be? If so, can she, extrapolate her disgust and revulsion for the criminal fiend who wielded a knife to the criminal fiends who wield law books, arrest warrants, indictments and the ironically the Constitution?
And that brings us to the persecution of President Trump by Alvin Bragg. Meh, he’s just the tip of the spear. Alvin Bragg represents the de-evolution and transmogrification of the American criminal justice system and nearly a thousand year evolution of Anglo-American/Western jurisprudence into a weapon of political expediency by a tyrannical junta. So, again, while even some leftist pundits and lawyers are at a minimum raising an eyebrow at what Bragg is doing and others are screaming that in a sane world, this is a complete farce and an insult that should collapse of its own weight, the problem here is that we are no longer in a sane world.
They want Trump tried, convicted and imprisoned. Hanged by his neck on live TV if at all possible. And if you think the rule of law, the Constitution, or any sense of morals, ethics, propriety or common decency are going to stop this, the fact that we have plunged this far and this fast after a stolen national election should disabuse you of that if nothing else does. There’s nothing standing in the way of these fiends. Even if Trump is convicted and then the conviction is overturned on appeal, he is not going to survive the ordeal waiting for him in D.C. as Julie Kelly warns us:
News coverage of Bragg’s faceplant is quickly disappearing from the front pages as all desperate eyes now turn to Jack Smith, the mysterious figure appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland last year ostensibly to take over the Justice Department’s investigation into Trump’s culpability for January 6 and alleged mishandling of classified documents. As I explained here, Smith is special counsel in name only; the team of investigators and prosecutors who initiated the first set of inquiries simply changed letterhead.
Given the targets of Smith’s recent subpoenas, we can surmise there is nothing independent or impartial about his behind-the-scenes work. In rapid succession, Smith has successfully sought testimony from Trump’s inner circle, including former chief of staff Mark Meadows and White House lawyer Evan Corcoran.
For the first time in history, a vice president will testify before a grand jury considering evidence of crimes committed by his former boss. Mike Pence, after winning partial immunity, reportedly will answer questions about his exchanges with Trump in the weeks leading up to the protest at the Capitol. Oddly, Pence will not be compelled to discuss what he did on January 6—a dubious protection considering his key presence throughout the day and into the next morning.
Of course, the public can’t read any of the government’s arguments since everything remains under seal. Ditto for court orders granting Smith’s every wish. As the most norm-crushing investigation in history unfolds in the nation’s capital, judges without explanation keep the files out of the view of the American people.
Out of view, that is, except for what D.C. apparatchiks want to spin. Selective leaks keep Smith’s inquiry in the headlines. CNN disclosed this week that Smith’s team is focused on postelection discussions in the Trump White House related to the possible seizure of voting machines. “Details about the secret grand jury testimony and closed-door interviews, neither of which have been previously reported, illustrate how special counsel Smith and his prosecutors are looking at the various ways Trump tried to overturn his electoral loss despite some of his top officials advising him against the ideas.”
The coordinated leak strategy is intended to give the appearance that the prison walls, once again, are closing in on Trump.
This time, however, it’s true. . .
. . . Smith might decide to pursue seditious conspiracy charges, which poses the greatest legal peril for Trump. Several men have been convicted or pleaded guilty to the rare charge, a crime comparable to treason. Five members of the Proud Boys are now on trial for seditious conspiracy; prosecutors have cited Trump’s off-handed (and prompted) remark for Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by” during the September 2020 presidential debate as a call-to-action of sorts that motivated the group’s unarmed “attack” on the Capitol. . .
. . . And to fulfill the bloodlust on the Left to finally see Donald Trump behind bars, there is a chance Smith will request, and a judge will grant, pretrial detention for the former president. Dozens of January 6 defendants charged with nonviolent obstruction or conspiracy counts have been denied release by D.C. judges; most have no criminal record and committed no violent act that day.
But none of the facts matter. Trump will be treated no differently in the banana republic-like atmosphere in the D.C. federal courthouse.
After all, this is the same judicial circuit that has stripped Trump of executive privilege protections and insisted, as Judge Tanya Chutkan wrote in her 2021 order denying Trump’s first privilege claims, “Presidents are not kings, and [Trump] is not President.”
And that is how Trump will be treated. Not as a former president but as a traitor—the man responsible for inciting the “insurrection” that still traumatizes so many judges and jurors to this day, the leader who attempted to “overthrow democracy” on January 6.
For most of our history, the Constitution’s words guided how our nation operated. Citizens had two ways to change the way the country was governed: voting and amending the Constitution. Today, however, neither works. The former has been undermined by a Democrat party that steals elections under the cover of night and calls you a conspiracy nut when you notice. The latter isn’t even a consideration because the Democrat party and the apparatchiks running the regulatory and security states are no longer constrained by its words.
America has become a tyranny where the people in power no longer feel the need to seek validation from the citizens. They decide on the outcome and manipulate the numbers to produce the result without even a fig leaf hiding their disdain for citizens. Whether it was Bernie Sanders in 2016, Donald Trump in 2020, or Kari Lake in 2022, the Democrat party and its entrenched government comrades have decided they no longer need to subject themselves to the will of the citizenry and, if anyone objects, they use the judiciary to crush that person.
America has been loosed from the anchor of the Constitution and the rule of law that kept our citizens free for two centuries. While the blood of the regime’s enemies may not yet be flowing in the streets, history very clearly tells us that, unless we change what’s happening, it will be. The question is, are there enough Americans who are familiar with history and willing to pull us out of our national death spiral before that terrible end is upon us? How Americans respond to Donald Trump’s persecution is the canary in the coal mine that will likely answer that question.
There is only one response to all of this. You know it, I know it and the whole world knows it. The question is, will that response ever happen? I have my doubts, not that in any way, shape or form do I desire it. I dread it. But I dread even more the prospect of just sitting on our hands and waiting for the figurative and even literal axe to fall
As President Trump – the last real American president – has said, they’re after us, he’s just in the way. Once he’s out of the way, as Julie Kelly is strongly indicating, then no one is safe.
Note: Just a reminder that if you can, please hit the tip jar (linked below). It really helps keep the lights on and is most appreciated.
See you on the hobby thread tomorrow. Be there, aloha.
And a blessed Easter to you all!
