Politicized Justice In America

Tucker Carlson, regardless of what you think of him, makes very important points in the video below. Watch and consider: 


How can our republic be united and survive survive such a tainted justice system? "Equality under the law" is dead!

Beyond Orwellian.

Kafka-esque.

Depressing.

  1. The justice system does appear to be rigged and biased against those who are not part of the cartel. When a nation has too many laws, persecuting your political enemies via the justice system becomes quite easy. The Podestas also had their snouts in the Ukraine trough, and didn't have their foreign lobbyist paperwork straight, but they escaped Manafort's fate because they were made men.

    1. Just as troubling is the criminalization of political differences. We are becoming a turd world nation, in many ways.

  2. . . . the advent of Law entails a kind of ‘disalienation’: in so far as the Other itself appears submitted to the ‘absolute condition’ of Law, the subject is no more at the mercy of the Other’s whim, its desire is no more totally alienated in the Other’s desire. . . In contrast to the ‘post-structuralist’ notion of a law checking, canalizing, alienating, oppressing ‘Oedipianizing’ some previous ‘flux of desire,’ Law is here conceived as an agency of ‘disalienation’ and ‘liberation’: it opens our access to desire by enabling us to disengage ourselves from the rule of the Other’s whim.

    When the law ceases to function as "law" and we become subject's to another's whims, our obligation to "believe" in it ceases to exist.

    1. The formula of the Party-State, as the defining feature of twentieth-century Communism, thus needs to be complicated: there is always a gap between Party and State, corresponding to the gap between the Ego-Ideal (symbolic Law) and the Superego, for the Party remains the half-hidden obscene shadow which redoubles the State structure. There is here no distance, its organization embodying a fundamental distrust of the State organs and mechanisms, as if they need to be continually kept in check. A true twentieth-century-style Communist never fully accepts the State: there always has to be a vigilant agency outside of State control, with the power to intervene in the State's business.

    2. Effective bureaucracies rely upon political neutrality. Without that, the bureaucracy cannot function effectively. It ceases to be "legal-rational" and become merely "legal". Rationality forms the underlying basis for its' efficiency.

    3. ...and given Joe Biden's "charismatic authority" to direct that bureaucracy... it's not going to last very long.

    4. In other words, Joe Biden isn't directing the bureaucracy, his Democratic Party subordinates are, and so the governing direction isn't coming from the President, it's coming from "party" members. This explains the massive "shift-Left" under this administration.

  3. Tucker seems to be a bit confused (well, intentionally confusing the gullibles is more like it) in the difference in ignoring a Congressional subpoena with using the 5th or Presidential privilege. He muddies the water further with how unfair it was that select Democrats such as Craig were acquitted while Roger Stone et al were convicted- as if some reason for Bannon to walk? Of course, his "justice equality" rings hollow with Stone's pardon along with of other convicted thugs Trump released back on the streets.

    Tucker can rotate and bob his head and glare in the eyes of the gullibles like a mesmerizer's pocket watch pendulum all he wants but simply referring to the Congressional hearings as a show trial doesn't mean you can legally snub their subpoena. This is why we have laws and trials. Bannon broke the law, had his day in court, had a highly qualified defense team (albeit no defense) and was convicted.

    Speaking of releasing thugs in the street, invoking Zeldom's attacker release might have been an "oops" moment.

    1. Bannon earned himself a "private" show trial.

      Corrupt Democrats just initiated a Jan 6. probe at DOJ so that they have a Damoclesian sword to hold over Republicans come next January when they take over the House and Senate... which they will defend ala "Mueller Investigation" to prevent "secret" anti-Democrat information from their show trials being exposed to public scrutiny. America must not fall for it. Come January we must cut off all DoJ money to "special prosecutors" used to hide public information from the public.

    2. from the Grassley letter to DoJ linked to above.

      The aforementioned allegations put a finer point on concerns that I have raised for many years about political considerations infecting the decision-making process at the Justice Department and FBI. If these allegations are true and accurate, the Justice Department and FBI are – and have been – institutionally corrupted to their very core to the point in which the United States Congress and the American people will have no confidence in the equal application of the law. Attorney General Garland and Director Wray, simply put, based on the allegations that I’ve received from numerous whistleblowers, you have systemic and existential problems within your agencies. You have an obligation to the country to take these allegations seriously, immediately investigate and take steps to institute fixes to these and other matters before you.

    3. FJ, where were Grassley, Young, Johnson and the lot while Trump was commandeering the DOJ as his own personal legal team?

      It seriously makes Hunter rather small potatoes.

    4. Robert Mueller was part of the Trump Legal Team? Who knew?

  4. Apparently, Justice Roberts was actively campaigning amongst the conservative justices to allow Roe vs. Wade to stand, but all that ended as democrats leaked the story that SCOTUS was about to overturn it.

    1. They went too far as usual... they went from 1st trimester to wanting abortion in the 9th month.... without proof of any danger to the mother or the baby... that's a road too far for most folks...
      And as we speak the sensible gay lobby is being ruined by nuts that want to select their gender on a daily basis and say that men can have baby's.... its craziness..... and it will catch up to them.... just like roe v wade....

    2. Fingers are being pointed at Alito as the leaker.

      If this proves to be true, man, Hunter will really look bad!

      Delete
    3. ^^New Dem talking points created to distract from the fact that the "actual leaker" is known and will be forever protected by institutional secrecy and the Deep State (D) Cloak of Gyges^^

      Alito "authored" the leaked opinion, hence is the obvious choice to be designated "scapegoat" by Democrats for the leak.

      Cui bono?

      Delete
    4. You obviously missed the point Thersites.

      If Alito were to be proven beyond a doubt, along with his full admission signed by Tucker, Trump, and all 8 of the other justices that he leaked the draft with a political intent of blaming Dems, it wouldn’t matter. Not one damn iota.

      It would only elevate the chant of “Hunter, Hunter, Hunter” or some other distraction.

      Just look at Trumps admissions within the past 48 hours of how a next Trump administration would operate.

      It just doesn’t matter.

    As with all other times I've patiently waited to get to watch the Tucker Carlson serial drama deliciously describe the abject persecution of Trump supporters for breaking the law, my suspension of disbelief for this riveting fiction that is so meta that it even asks you to believe Tucker Carlson knows what he's talking about was immediately shattered by the sight of police officers entering the cafe as I was having breakfast. There I was, with a pretty good view of a Trump supporter, whose self-identification as such via the trickle of drool on his chin and the asinine noises emerging from his face was only heightened by the red Chinese-made "Make America Great Again" upon his virtually unused brain container. This was going to be good, I thought, as surely I would see the two police officers take ahold of this lamentably hapless Trump supporter, and if I were lucky, they would savagely beat him with their batons until his blood spattered across my eggs, grits, coffee, and bacon. I surreptitiously inched my table and chair closer just in case.

    But the two police officers sat down at the diner counter, and ordered coffee. They didn't even radio in a report that they were clearly in sight of someone they were supposed to be systematically oppressing. I was astounded! How could Tucker Carlson's Critical Grace Theory be so horribly and unentertainingly wrong? Where's the Orwell? Where's the Kafka? Where's the law enforcement officers that would have in this Trump supporters head with their nightsticks that work in daylight just as well and then charge the man a fine for bleeding on their uniforms?

    I wanted answers. I demanded answers. I said "Look here officers, I don't care what you think of Tucker Carlson badmouthing an effort to get to the root cause of 140 of your brothers in blue being injured by people dressed like that guy that you are supposed to be beating the shit out of on sight!"

    The officers laughed and shrugged and winked and said, "Shhhhhh. Don"t spook him. Tell that idiot Tucker Carlson we're standing back and standing by."

      Well you know, if you're constantly churning one out to the idea of having a civil war and overthrowing the government, eventually you'll be too blind and hairy-palmed to whip out a convincing hard on when it's time to do business. Slap a Trump supporter's teeth out. They ain't gonna do a goddamn thing but cry about being persecuted. Hell, you don't even have to slap Trump himself to get that.

      If Biden wasn't such a liberal left wing pussy Trump would be facing death penalty charges by now.

    5. The civil war claptrap is a media narrative. If the media were continually yammering away about space aliens invading earth, polls would show at least 40% of the people feared an alien invasion.

      I think it's a little more serious than that. Look at how many people thought the dismally unpopular Trump had a prayer of winning the 2020 election and further actually believe he did. These people don't like nor live in the real world, and certainly aren't coming back for a visit any time soon. Best we can do is understand that there's 74 million people in our country that hate America and everything it stands for enough to have voted for Trump and his far left "tear down the establishment" rhetoric and thank our lucky stars that they're there to cry out loud on the internet whenever things look grimmish. But folks like the neo-Leninist Steve Bannon and self-confessed Russian intelligence asset Michael Flynn are still out there hawking the civil war narrative and even if only 1% of our seething domestic America haters escalate from voting for Trump to more direct and violent means, that's still around 740,000 people ready to kill kill kill among absolutely nobody trying to sell that Trumpism is a politics of peace.

      We actually have a Trumpoid running for Senate here in Missouri who has a campaign ad of him in tactical gear and weapons ready to kick in the doors of... his fellow Republicans.

      Y'all need to put crazy down. Or we will.

  6. Bideen and his ilk are the reason we are in this situation, the question is what is their end game? The end game is to convert this nation into a socialistic nation right under our noses. The problem is the Republicans are doing nothing but making talking points out of it and tired of hearing they are outnumbered and that we the people have no voice. Oh wait, the press secretary who is not worthy of her name being scrolled out here said the American people just need to suffer a little longer and it will all work out (paraphrased).

    In the meantime Biden is planning to seal his son Hunter Biden's laptop debackle for 40 years - by then it won't really matter. Nothing matters to these people.
