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.

How Hating White People Became the New National Sport

Anti-white books have been forced upon millions of intimidated white employees and upon vulnerable children

Published

on

Reviewing an advanced copy of Ed Brodow’s The War on Whites: How Hating White People Became the New National Sport is a major education. The author makes it abundantly clear that amidst political correctness and the cancel culture, Americans are afraid to discuss the issue of race.

Not Remaining Quiet

Anyone seeking to express honest views on the race problem is labeled a racist if he is white, or an Uncle Tom, if he is black. Most people simply keep quiet.

Ed Brodow has elected not to remain quiet and his new book, The War on Whites, explores the truth about such provocative topics as systemic racism, white supremacy, and diversity.

The War on Whites unmasks what Brodow calls the “anti-white racial inquisition that is poisoning America.” While we are accustomed to defining racism as discrimination aimed exclusively at black people, Brodow expands the definition to encompass discrimination against whites, which he says is just as onerous as discrimination against blacks or anyone else.

Code Language

What the Left calls “anti-racism” is merely code language for racism against white people. Trashing whites, he says, has become an acceptable part of American life.

Brodow expounds upon how whites are being demonized, marginalized, stereotyped, denigrated, and suppressed at every turn. “We have reached the point where legions dislike white people,” he says. “It’s not just people of color. Even white people dislike white people. It is open season on whites and, as strange as it might seem, large segments of the white population are all for it.” Many gullible whites are ashamed to be white and apologize at every turn..

The War on Whites exposes the insidious reality of diversity training. These popular trainings are now a multi-billion-dollar industry. They fail, however, to create more diversity, Brodow says. They are all about racial indoctrination, not racial sensitivity. Their actual purpose is to suppress white people.

Undo Who You Are

Training sponsored by the City of Seattle and the Coca-Cola Company are typical of programs that demand white employees “undo their whiteness.” The media do not report this, yet, if black people were required to “undo their blackness,” he says, riots would ensue.

Citing the opinions of leading black thinkers – Thomas Sowell, Shelby Steele, Bob Woodson, Candace Owens, Larry Elder, and John McWhorter – the author offers a convincing argument that systemic racism and white privilege are myths invented to demonize whites and foment racial division. “Systemic racism no longer exists in the United States,” he says. “Individual instances of racism are occurring and always will occur, against both blacks and whites, but to suggest that racism is institutionalized ignores the progress of the past 60 years.”

Rather than exhibiting systemic racism, white Americans have bent over backwards to make life better for blacks and other minorities. With the civil rights legislation of the 1960s, he says, “whites made it possible for blacks and other minorities to become full partners in the American Dream.

For the Good of Everyone

White power was unchallenged up to that time. Yet willingly, unilaterally, they relinquished it. No one forced them. They acted because it was the right thing to do. 58 years later, what are they receiving in return? Contempt, hatred, and intolerance.”

Brodow critiques Joe Biden’s executive order on equity. Biden, he says, is attempting to replace America’s belief in equality with an illegal policy that marginalizes whites. The objective of equity is not equality of opportunity, but rather equality of outcome. Everyone should have the same income, job success, house, neighborhood, etc.

Biden’s policy, Brodow says, will ensure that all new federal employees will be selected based upon their skin color so that preference can be given to non-whites.

Antiracist Literature That is Racist

Brodow analyzes popular racist literature exemplified by Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility and Ibram X. Kendi’s How to Be an Antiracist. These anti-white books have been forced upon millions of intimidated white employees and upon vulnerable children. Brodow says that the purpose of White Fragility is make whites feel guilty about being white.

DiAngelo asserts that if you are white and doubt that you are a racist, it is proof you are a racist. Kendi’s book advocates that “the only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination.” DiAngelo and Kendi, both of whom hate white people, demand that all whites should confess their racism.

Actually, anyone who is coerced into reading either or both of these books should read The War on Whites.

The Whole Story

At a time when national unity, cooperation, and understanding are needed more than ever, vast segments of our population are doing all they can to demonize white people. The War on Whites tells the whole story.

Mainstream Media: Intentionally and Diabolically Unfair and Unbalanced

All pretense that the mainstream media strives for objectivity is gone

Published

on

by Jay DeLancey and Jeff Davidson

The grandest mistake the American populace committed in the last half-century was assuming that our media was even somewhat fair and balanced. Likewise proceeding in the last two decades as if the Internet giants had no dog in the political arena proved to be a mistake of historical proportions.

Today because so many people, still, are conditioned as such, the mere fact that say, a CNN, has a website prompts some people to believe that the network have something of value to offer. Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, whose focus is classics and military history, says that the New York Times is “a shell of what it used to be.”

Nothing Objective to Offer

The paper always leaned to the left, since it’s founding, but it did an intermittently semi-decent job in reporting the facts. The Times sent their reporters out to the streets to do hard-core reporting. The mission was to gather relevant data, identify sources, talk to people, find eye witnesses, speak to bonafide experts, attain corroboration, and then when they were sure of what they had written, submit the story or feature.

Their articles probably never represented a 50-50 balance – perhaps 55-45 or 60-40 in favor of the left. Today, no rational media observer would contend that the balance is 70-30, or even 80-20. Study after study reveals, say, in the case of covering Donald Trump, that 92% of all features are negative, and that is not to say the remaining 8% are positive. Mostly, they’re neutral.

If you are a Trump or DeSantis supporter, or a Republican running for Senate or the House of Representatives, for governor in your state, or for any other position of prominence, you simply cannot expect a fair shake from the press, nationally, and in most cases locally. Indeed, you’re likely to be demonized, endlessly, over issues for which Democrats receive a free pass.

Compromised to the Breaking Point

The New York Times and The Washington Post of old, as biased as they might’ve been, at least offered some semblance of up-to-date information, with facts and figures when they had them, and timely reporting as situations unfolded. Hansen remarked that today the people who run these newspapers are trading on the decades of hard work and the reputations built up over more than 100 years.

Those who put in the seed work are dead and gone and thus, obviously, have no say about what’s going on today. The Times and the Post, in less than a generation, are destroying their own reputations. The people who currently run these ‘news’ organizations are dragging them down at warp speed and don’t even recognize the damage that they are doing.

By 2030, what is now a shell of an organization will be less so, and it wouldn’t be too wild to predict that the Times could totally morph into something else. The Post is not far behind in devising its own demise.

The Pretense is Gone

Each of the countless newspapers that feed off of these two publishing giants suffer as well. All such pretense that the mainstream media strives for objectivity is gone. The good news, if you could call it that, is everyone on the right is now vitally all aware that this has happened.

Those who strive for integrity in elections, those who are on the right, and those who are routinely demonized by the left, understand what’s occurring to the nth degree. It’s not fair, but to know what you face is a benefit of sorts.
