Is America a Nation of Laws?

For five years running, a variety of laws broken by top officials of our federal agencies have gone unpunished.

Published

As we hear news broadcasts about members of the U.S. armed forces or law enforcement professionals being killed in the line of duty, we’re instantly reminded of the sacrifices that so many have made, and others continue to make so that we can enjoy the freedoms many multitudes around the world do not have.

Concurrently, the specter of corruption and lawlessness prevails in our cities and among government officials. The illegal raid on Rudy Giuliani’s offices and property is merely the latest in a string FBI malfeasance.

Law and order matter because they are the glue by which a society can function. Without them, cities and towns devolve into anarchy and chaos. What we’ve witnessed of late in Portland and Minneapolis, and earlier in Seattle, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Cleveland, represent clear signposts as to what life would be like without law and order

Wild in the Streets

While many on the Left do all that they can each day to minimize the extent of the municipal uprisings, considering the amount of damage done and the inability of local jurisdictions to maintain control, the grim reality is that, left unchecked, many people will run wild in the streets.

If you’re among those people who are fine with what’s occurring, and not using local or federal troops to restore order, contemplate how you would feel if your town, specifically your neighborhood, and perhaps even right in front of your house, overly vigorous protesters began to appear day and night.

Suppose some of these protesters taunted you, said they’re going to take over your home, and said that your property doesn’t belong to you, it belongs to them. Would you find that to be a bit upsetting?

The Unpunished

Violent protests and riots are one form of lawbreaking, but other forms are equally troubling in a society that prided itself as a nation of laws.

For five years running, a variety of laws broken by top officials of our federal agencies have gone unpunished. No one from the State Department, Department of Justice, FBI, or a variety of other federal agencies who knowingly broke the law has yet been indicted, let alone accused, let alone referred for prosecution (as far as we know).

Of nagging continuing concern to those on the right: The case against Hillary Clinton in 2016 for her egregious security breaches as U.S. Secretary of State, as observed by the Washington Post, New York Times and Wall Street Journal among legions of media outlets on the left and the right, to this day, is still evident.

The Obama Administration plainly let Hillary Clinton off the hook for long-running, multi-faceted, gross national security violations that merit a lengthy prison sentence. She engineered such violations to run the U.S. State Department as a Clinton-family profit center. In a nation of laws, she would have already been indicted and, likely, removed by her party in 2016 as a viable presidential candidate.

Lawbenders

The FBI director at the time, James Comey, recommended that she not be prosecuted for extreme carelessness contributing to numerous security breaches. This maneuver might prove to be a watershed moment in American history – denoting when confidence was lost in what should be entrusted leaders and institutions, and of ‘We the People.’

Despite two ongoing FBI criminal investigations, former president Obama had already committed to campaigning with Hillary Clinton that same day that Comey handed Clinton a free pass. Nevermind the 33,000 subpoenaed emails she destroyed.

In late 2020, with Bill Barr as attorney general, we thought that Hillary Clinton might yet face charges for her high crimes – even easier to prove with Judicial Watch digging up new evidence every week – as her numerous lies before Congressional committees are amply documented on video.

Alas, no dice. If she is never charged, the biggest losers are American citizens on the right and the left.

Taking Abuse

If you’re a Bernie Sanders supporter, you have the right to this day to be livid because your candidate, amidst other blatant abuses during the 2016 campaign, was denied his rightful ascension to the top of the Democratic Party.

If you’re not upset that Hillary Clinton hasn’t been indicted, ask yourself, “Is allowing her to be above the law worth jeopardizing the values upon which our Republic is based?”

This is How Far Left-Wing State Bars Are Now Going to Destroy Conservatives: Prosecution

Published

on

State bars have acquired a reputation for targeting conservative attorneys and destroying their ability to practice law, and now they are taking it to a new level — prosecution. It is practically unheard of — unless you’re being targeted — to be criminally prosecuted and arrested for not checking a box about an unrelated civil matter on a form, but that is what is happening to former Republican congressional candidate Jeffrey Moffatt.

Moffatt, who many believe was targeted by the State Bar of Arizona because he and his wife both ran for office as Republicans, was indicted a week ago by the Biden administration related to his efforts fighting back against a sketchy disbarment. He is being retaliated against because of how hard he’s fought back. A good prosecutor can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, as the old saying goes. That’s because the defense doesn’t get a chance to show their side to the grand jury, so the prosecutor can just pick and choose what evidence they want to produce.

In 2016, the presiding judge of the Arizona bar, William J. O’Neil, who has a lengthy history of corruption, including allegedly protecting a sexual predator, so bad that even the liberal Arizona Republic has written about him, disbarred Moffatt over something that other attorneys receive a mere slap on the hand for. But unfortunately, once an attorney has been disbarred in one state, almost every other state and jurisdiction reciprocally refuse to allow that attorney to practice law. It sounds draconian, and the effect sure is, but multiple jurisdictions piling on doesn’t make a person any worse. The left controls much of the legal system, particularly state bars, so it’s done deliberately when they want to thoroughly destroy someone.

Notably, even though Moffatt lives in California and the person who complained about him lives in New Mexico, neither the California bar nor the New Mexico bar did anything about the complaint, only the Arizona bar — and Moffatt has practically nothing to do with Arizona or practicing law there — pursued an investigation, no doubt as part of its pattern of going after conservative attorneys.

The prosecution comes down to the fact Moffatt didn’t disclose to the Social Security Administration that he was disbarred when representing claimants. There is NO requirement that people representing claimants be attorneys, it’s a red herring. Moffatt didn’t think he needed to disclose this information because he was actively fighting the disbarment, fully expecting to get it reversed since it was so obviously heavy-handed targeting. He wasn’t hiding the disbarment and his fight either, he has four federal lawsuits going over it and he and his wife have been very vocal on the internet.

The indictment lists just five payments he received for representing those clients, totaling merely $30,000. The Biden administration is charging him with wire fraud and falsifying a material fact. Whenever the government can’t get someone on a real crime, they throw in wire fraud. It merely means a method of communication like a phone, email, text or fax was used while you were supposedly committing some other crime. It sounds scary but it’s just meant to pile on.

In 2017, Moffatt sued the Arizona Bar, the State of Arizona and the Arizona Supreme Court over the disbarment. He has ongoing proceedings with the Social Security Administration fighting the disbarment going back to at least 2018 — so why bring criminal charges against him now over something they were perfectly happy to civilly litigate with him for three years?

Obviously, by fighting back he got under the skin of a Democrat on a power trip. The U.S. Attorney who signed the indictment, Tracy L. Wilkison, was appointed immediately after Joe Biden took office as president.

Efforts have arisen around the country to strip state bars of their monopolies over the practice of law — essentially functioning as unions, which is illegal in right-to-work states — but havent had any real luck yet. State bars have deep pockets because they gouge attorneys with huge mandatory dues. Their powerful lobbyists buy RINO legislators who oppose any legislation dismantling the bars.

The Moffatts believe that O’Neil was unconstitutionally seated — a judicial imposter who committed false impersonations. Many attorneys in Arizona believe he was put in that position in order to do the dirty work of powerful leftists at the top of Arizona’s legal system, accumulating so much dirt on people that no one would dare try and remove him.

Moffatt’s wife Star, who has spent a considerable amount of time investigating O’Neil’s corruption, said, “Some day, the Arizona Supreme Court will have to answer to a higher power why they condoned O’Neil to commit acts of a ‘Judicial Imposter.’ Tell me how in the world does an attorney like my husband get arrested for exposing O’Neil? O’Neil was also previously admonished by the Arizona Supreme Court for exceeding his jurisdiction and authority on death row cases.”

One of the top former prosecutors in Arizona told me, “I have never seen such a gross abuse of prosecutorial power, to arrest and pursue someone merely for not checking a box. Nowhere in the indictment does it even say how Jeff continuing to represent these individuals caused any harm or that the law even prohibits him from representing them. Since he’s not required to be an attorney, it sounds like a violation of equal protection.”

Moffatt is filing a motion to dismiss the indictment. Tellingly, O’Neil unexpectedly resigned about six months ago. Moffatt and his wife are wonderful people who have spent years volunteering and serving on the board of Miracle Star helping people with substance abuse problems. When some of the women had no place to go, they put them up temporarily.

This is just the beginning, expect more conservative attorneys to be prosecuted after disbarment. Trump’s attorneys are next, including Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell. If a conservative attorney fights back too hard trying to expose corruption in the legal system, the leftists who control that arena will retaliate with prosecution. And sadly, judges like O’Neil are rarely punished.

Tucker: Biden’s botched drone strike killed kids

Finally, this afternoon, the Biden administration was forced to stop lying.

Published

on

Tucker explores emerging facts about the recent drone strike that killed several civilians, including children, in Afghanistan … and what the Biden administration isn’t doing about it.

Highlights include:

“The administration at that moment needed something to prove they are not senile and incompetent; they are instead decisive and strong. And what better way to do that than to kill people?”

“So that day the US military bombed a white Toyota in a residential complex not far from the Kabul airport. The White House touted that strike as a demonstration of our over-the horizon military capabilities in Afghanistan.”

“Soon, however, a few people started to ask the obvious questions. For example, who exactly had the US military killed? When asked, the defense department wouldn’t say. Oh, that might have been a tip.”

“Neither John Kirby nor anyone else at the Pentagon ever corrected that story.”

“But the New York Times did, to their rare credit. More than a week ago, the New York Times ran a piece revealing, with video evidence, that the Biden administration’s drones did not actually kill anyone from ‘Isis K,’ whoever they are, assuming they exist. The drone killed a civilian aid worker in a car full of kids.”

“Finally, this afternoon, the Biden administration was forced to stop lying.”

“After consulting with our inter-agency partners … we’re admitting that we lied to you for weeks about what we actually did.”
