the Morning Report 7/2/24

Good Morning Kids. So SCOTUS came out yesterday with the decision that confirms the logical and to the best of my knowledge precedent that presidents do indeed have immunity from prosecution over things they did that fall under the purview of their official acts. Of course the Leftists are in complete freakout mode over this because they have been attempting to railroad Donald Trump as some sort of mad tyrannical dictator in claiming things he did while in office where tyrannical in nature and as such demand his being hung drawn and quartered:

Jonathan Turley nails it:

Indeed, the Democrats have become the very threat that the court was meant to resist.
Recently, senators demanded that Chief Justice John Roberts appear to answer to them for his own decisions. (Roberts wisely declined.)
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer previously declared in front of the Supreme Court, “I want to tell you, [Neil] Gorsuch, I want to tell you, [Brett] Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price.”
Now Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) announced that she will seek the impeachment of all six of the conservative justices. She was immediately joined by other Democratic members.
Notably, scholars have long disagreed where to draw the line on presidential immunity. The court adopted a middle approach that rejected extreme arguments on both sides. 
Yet, because Ocasio-Cortez disagrees with their decision, she has declared that this “is an assault on American democracy. It is up to Congress to defend our nation from this authoritarian capture.”
Previously, Ocasio-Cortez admitted that she does not understand why we even have a Supreme Court. She asked “How much does the current structure benefit us? And I don’t think it does.”
Other members, such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), have called for packing the Court with additional members to immediately secure a liberal majority to rule as she desires.
For these pundits and politicians, justice is merely an extension of politics and subject to the whims of the majority. . . 

. . . None of these threats or bloviating will work. The court is designed to stand against everyone and everything except for the Constitution. It has been forged for his moment.

Unfortunately like so many others, despite getting it 100% right especially in that first sentence, he does not seem to realize that the Constitution and its underlying principles are no longer respected by a considerable percentage of the populace and at least one of the two main political parties of this nation and too much of the other alleged opposition party that looks the other way. What Democrats cannot control or bend to their will in their sending quest for absolute power is to either be destroyed, or delegitimized. This decision will only add fuel to their fire to fundamentally transform America as founded into yet another failed dystopian nightmare.

OF course, fresh from his disastrous debate performance, Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants’ handlers thought it was a great idea to shove the corpse in front of a teleprompter to rail against the SCOTUS and rally his base. Cue the lead balloon:

Biden spoke for five minutes, from a teleprompter, on the court finding that presidents have immunity from criminal prosecution for “official acts” taken in office. After Biden criticized the decision, calling it a “dangerous precedent,” he quickly left without taking a single question as reporters shouted inquiries his way. . . 

. . . “I know I will respect the limits of the presidential powers I have for three and a half years, but any president including Donald Trump, will now be free to ignore the law. I concur with Justice Sotomayor’s dissent today. Here’s what she said: she said ‘in every use of official power, the president is now a king above the law. With fear for our democracy, I dissent.’ End of quote. So should the American people dissent — I dissent,” Biden concluded.

HE’s reading his teleprompter cues because he has a cold, right?  In any case, let’s not start initiating a venturi effect on our nether regions just yet.

Justice Barrett’s comments have created a critical, largely overlooked opening for Democrats and their Special Counsel. Barrett hinted that if prosecutors concentrate exclusively on Trump’s private acts, they might succeed in their legal efforts against him. This insight essentially offers a strategic roadmap for those aiming to hold Trump accountable.

The key question here is this: “When Trump was questioning the accuracy of the vote count, was he doing it in his capacity as the U.S. President or as a candidate running for office?”
The Biden campaign, or whoever his replacement is, can expedite the laser-focused case against Trump the campaigner, while niftily bogging down his campaign to fight the newly invented legal action. This perspective implies that Trump’s remarks and actions on January 6, for instance, might be reclassified as those of a candidate rather than a president, thus stripping him of immunity for those specific actions.

Justice Barrett’s suggestion does not merely reflect a hypothetical scenario. It outlines a tangible legal strategy. By urging the Special Counsel to fine-tune their indictments to emphasize unequivocally private conduct, Barrett indirectly points to a way to bypass the delays and complications associated with broader, less distinct charges.
This brings to light the broader issue of how legal interpretations can shift political dynamics. The Supreme Court’s ruling and Barrett’s remarks underscore the delicate balance between legal principles and political maneuvering. It raises questions about the extent to which legal strategies are influenced by the political landscape and vice versa.

How does one get actual originalists on the court who have fealty to the Constitution as written when every aspect of government and of course our academia brainwashing mills from K all the way through post grad and law school are seemingly dedicated to erasing that document and what it stands for from the collective memory. 

Well, I suppose half a Solomonic baby is better than nothing. 

Naturally, the preservation of “our precious democracy” means that Leftists can openly call for the assassination of Trump and the supreme Court justices either via a military coup or, by whatever means necessary. This is free speech, of course! In Soviet America baby splits itself.
