As the bogus impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump begins this week, New York legislators are pushing to pass the “No Citizen is Above the Law” bill that is aimed at making it easy for Trump or any future president to avoid state prosecution if accused of a crime.
Of course, it all depends on an accuser’s definition of “wrongdoing” because that definition could change more often than your underwear in the Wokety Woke Woke world we now live in.
The bill was proposed by state Senator Michael Gianaris (D-Queens) and Assemblyman Nick Perry (D-Brooklyn) and it is determined to stop the statute of limitations so that an angry mob can go after a former president because the statute of limitations clock will be frozen in time during the years a president sits in office. Is it Constitutional? Probably not, but since when has that ever stopped a partisan Democrat?
During a president’s term, he is immune from arrest or prosecution no different from members of Congress when Congress is in session. This is based on a couple of Department of Justice (DOJ) memos from 1973 and 2000, both of which interpret the US Constitution, but both of which also have never been tested in the US Supreme Court.
Perry and Gianaris both argue that a president should not use the time they are in office to avoid prosecution because the statute of limitations expires. In other words, a rule that has been around since time began but is not appreciated for one man, in particular, shall not continue to stand.
“Any president who breaks the law should be held accountable without regard to the time they spend in office. As our nation prepares for an unprecedented second impeachment trial, we must close the loophole that allows Presidents to escape culpability by exploiting statutes of limitations due to Presidential immunity,” Gianaris said.
The New York Attorney General Letitia James, known for going after the NRA, because, well, obviously, and Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. are looking into Trump’s businesses.
James not only $750,000 in public money that she didn’t need for her campaign back in 2017, but she spent $500,000 of it on Election Day itself when she dumped money she would otherwise have been obligated to return. James called the National Rifle Association a terrorist organization even though there is not an ounce of proof to say that.
In 2015 Vance refused to prosecute Harvey Weinstein despite having an audio file of the former Hollywood mogul admitting to sexual assault, but suddenly he became woke enough to want to go after Donald Trump for business dealings that if it goes the way everything else that’s been thrown at the man does will end up being absolutely nothing to the charges.
District attorneys in the United States have become corrupted by progressive politics. DAs like Kim Jong Foxx in Chicago who suddenly dropped all charges against hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett, Kim Jong Gardner who failed to go after the rioters who broke through a locked gate onto private property but went after the McCluskeys who defended themselves instead, and Larry Krasner who is a disaster in Philadelphia, most of them funded by George Soros who is hell-bent on having American laws relaxed or even thrown by the wayside by prosecutors no longer prosecuting for certain types of crimes but going after innocent people like the Mclusky’s in Missouri.
The bill is expected to pass the New York Senate this week and will be voted on in the Assembly at any time.
Alan Dershowitz, Constitutional law professor, and Trump legal advisor said that the law is more-than-likely legal, so long as they don’t freeze the statute of limitations on a criminal prosecution, which is precisely what the bill is designed to do.
Republican lawmakers have stood up and accused Perry and Gianaris of political showboating.
“This is just a pointless political headline-grab that’s out of their jurisdiction and ignores more pressing concerns happening right in front of their faces,” said Assemblyman Will Barclay (R-Syracuse).
“It’s unfortunate they’ve spent far less energy reining-in executive powers or issuing a subpoena to the sitting governor,” added Barclay, referring to Cuomo’s terrible job at handling the coronavirus on top of what many consider murder in the nursing home death scandal where the governor forced COVID-19 positive patients into nursing homes that caused a lot of deaths.
A weekend of violence is expected in Pennsylvania ahead of the 2020 Presidential election on Tuesday, after a police shooting has been the latest excuse for violent domestic uprisings, with widescale looting and crime in the City Philadelphia.
“The City of Philadelphia says it will release the body camera footage and 911 calls of the fatal police shooting of 27-year-old Walter Wallace Jr., but not right away. The bodycam footage of Monday’s shooting that was widely expected to be released Thursday is now expected to be released Wednesday, Nov. 4,” KYWTV reported.
In a joint statement today, Mayor Jim Kenney, Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw, District Attorney Larry Krasner and the Wallace family acknowledged the pain Philadelphians are feeling and say they hope by releasing the recordings next Wednesday, there will be enough time to calm tensions.
“The Wallace Family, the Mayor, District Attorney, and Police Commissioner have all agreed that releasing the body camera footage and 911 audio on Wednesday, November 4, by the close of business is in the best interest of our city and its residents. Philadelphians are experiencing an immense amount of pain, and significant unrest persists throughout the entire city,” the statement reads.
However, the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police is pushing for Krasner to release the bodycam and 911 recordings to the public, saying officers followed police department training and protocol.
“The officers were justified in their use of force under very difficult and stressful conditions, an armed man confronting them with a knife. For nearly 50 seconds, officers retreated and ordered the male to drop his knife more than 20 times,” FOP President John McNesby said in a statement.
They believe once the district attorney’s office releases the tapes, the city can begin the process of healing.
Those who have seen them say there are uncomfortable parts to see and hear before the shooting takes place.
“When I hear the officer say certain things that I think are very troubling, and I think even Mr. Krasner a couple of days before the family got a chance to watch the video, is on record as saying he saw the video and he was troubled with what he saw,” Wallace family attorney Shaka Johnson said.
As we wait another five days, Outlaw says bodycam footage can answer or leave more questions.
“It can answer a lot of unanswered questions or get ahead of the narrative that’s out there where there’s misinformation involved, and then I’ve also seen it go completely the opposite of that,” Outlaw said.
Independent journalists have been reporting on violent attacks in the city business and civil areas:
US House Representative from Ohio chimed in on Twitter:
“Police in Philadelphia are being told NOT to arrest looters. Are you kidding me? The people of Pennsylvania deserve law and order. Not lawlessness.”
Where to begin, oh, where to begin? You’re just not going to believe this story, but it has to be told anyway.
First and foremost, this story is so crazy, and with a Philly media blackout, I want to mention that everything I write about here is to be prefaced with the word “allegedly.”
Philadelphia is in the news so much this week, because of Black Lives Matter (BLM) kicking Donald Trump’s reelection campaign into high gear. This story also ties directly into one of Joe Biden’s signature campaign issues; The “skyrocketing” murders of black transgender “women,” or, black men who feel the need to wear ugly prom dresses and their resume. It’s what creepy, sleep Joe cares about.
If that isn’t strange enough, the media doesn’t wish to touch this story with a ten-foot pole.
FAIR WARNING: This isn’t a warm and fuzzy family story you’re about to read.
The latest brouhaha in Philadelphia began after police failed to follow Joe Biden’s police reform recommendation. When a dangerous, psychotic criminal with a mile-long rap sheet attacked police with a knife, they didn’t shoot the man in the leg as Joe Biden will unconstitutionally order cops across the nation to do if he wins the election next week. No, they shot and killed him before he stabbed on of them.
The newest BLM martyr pled guilty to a home invasion robbery back in 2017 during which he kicked down a woman’s door and held a gun to her head. A real Biden voter. By 2020 he was already back in polite society. In fact, he was awaiting for another trial for threatening to shoot a woman when he had his fatal encounter with Philly police.
Why wasn’t this man in prison? Well, that’s because of Larry Krasner, the Philadelphia District Attorney, another George Soros-funded progressive DA where the billionaire radical leftist dumped buckets of money into his campaign to help him get elected. And like many Soros-backed DAs like Kim Foxx in Chicago who dropped over 25,000 cases in the first three years of her getting elected, and suddenly, out of nowhere, dropped all charges against hate-crime-hoaxer Jussie Smollett. Or Kim Gardner, the Circuit Attorney in St. Louis, Missouri who charged the McCloskeys for defending their home against a mob of rioters who broke through a locked gate and entered their property with the intent to do harm. In Philly’s Larry Krasner’s case, he lets criminals out of jail as often as he can, and only fights for minimal sentences for serious violent crimes committed against the very people he was elected to defend.
Thanks to the BLM summer lovefest that Joe Biden’s voters have put the country through, Philadelphia just had its 400th black-on-black homicide for the year with homicides spiking up 42 percent in Philadelphia this year under DA Larry Krasner’s catch-and-release policies. They even beat New York City out that has a whopping 30 percent homicide increase rate. I hope the voters in Philly are paying attention that a billionaire Nazi collaborator is running an experiment to the American justice system at their expense.
You might assume that while Philadelphia is in a state of war after BLM rioters injured over 30 police officers and rioters taking advantage of the “Walter Wallace Jr 100 Percent Discount” by looting stores that the DA’s office is working overtime in conjunction with the police department to help get control of the situation, but you couldn’t be more wrong.
One of Krasner’s staff is a man by the name of Devonte’ Douglass. Douglass just happens to be Philadelphia’s Gun Violence Counselor. Yes, things are so bad in thee City of Brotherly Love that they had to hire a gun violence counselor. He’s an anti gun guy who works for the DA’s office. He offers counseling services to family members who lose their loved ones resulting from DA Larry Krasner’s catch-and-release policies. 2020, the armpit of calendar years, has made Douglass a very busy man.
Nevertheless, Douglass wasn’t in the office on Tuesday at 10 am, even though he was being paid to be there by the Philadelphia taxpayers. Instead, Douglass picked up a black tranny (yeah, I said it) prostitute, drove him/her/ze/zer/it to a local cemetery (because that’s where we all go when we want to have sex with black transvestite Philadelphia hookers) and paid the man, the woman, the ze, the zer, it $500 for a bizarre sex act in the back of a Dodge Durango with the windows rolled down, doing things that did not involve social distancing or the wearing of masks.
After they concluded the fiduciary aspect of their transaction, the black trans “person” pulled out a .357 and demanded more cash from the city’s Gun Violence Counselor. The male prostitute then put the gun away and started to walk around to the front of the vehicle. That’s when the city’s very liberal, very anti-Second Amendment Gun Violence Counselor allegedly pulled out his Glock and plugged his weird “date” twice in the trans chest.
Despite the fact that he allegedly killed his date while the black trans “woman” was not pointing a gun at him, Douglass has not been charged with a crime. Philadelphia police revealed that this isn’t the first time that Douglass picked up a trans prostitute for bizarre sex acts in the back of a Dodge Durango in a neighborhood cemetery while he’s on the taxpayers’ dime. Here’s the kicker. Philadelphia local media has imposed a complete blackout on this story. You will neither read nor hear about it from a Philly news source. Not even the tabloids are covering. Not even the leftist Philadelphia City Paper or Philadelphia Magazine or even Metro Chinese Weekly!
A short digression: I remember a story when Fast Eddie Rendell was elected Mayor of Philly, Philadelphia Newspapers, Inc. which owned the two top Philly newspapers the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News, both left-wing outlets (so much for competition) owed a serious sum of money in back taxes to the city. Rumor had it that Rendell made them an offer they couldn’t refuse and allegedly told the news firm that if they never wrote a single negative story about him or his administration he would accept the puny amount of $15,000 and call the tax liability settled. Of course, they jumped on the offer and held up their end of the bargain by never writing a single, solitary negative story about the crooked Democrat mayor. Do you think maybe Mayor Jim Kenney has a similar deal? Why else would the Philadelphia news industry not want to jump on this juicy story that would make you want to throw up in your own mouth when you read it? Sorry for that. Or, could it be because liberal news outlets feel it would be too politically incorrect to report on a black man of power killing his transgender prostitute who tried to shake him down for more money in the middle of performing in the cemetery sex Olympics?
One Philadelphia reporter explained that the media isn’t covering the story as a result of it could be cruel to “out” Devonte’ Douglass as a gay man, especially because the nature of his relationship with the black trans hooker is “unclear.” Wait, what? How about cruelty toward the human being who is dead because of the Gun Violence Counselor’s alleged use of his own firearm to kill him/her/ze/zer/it?
Good, God, the logic of liberals is exhausting on the human brain. I mean, I thought black lives were supposed to matter to leftist journos? I realize this is another black on black crime that leftist reporters don’t care about, but still. The hypocrisy of an anti-gun, Gun Violence Counselor shooting and killing someone who happens to be a transvestite prostitute he just did really strange things with in the back of a Dodge Durango in the middle of a cemetery should be enough to get even a last page mention? Instead, it get “meh.”
Things like this are in the top 100 reasons 26 years ago I ran screaming from Philadelphia, a city I was born, educated and raised in, and have never looked back.
Washed up NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is on a new mission. He is calling for the release of cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. He says that Jamal was framed and has been in prison since 1981.
“Mumia was shot, brutalized, arrested, and chained to a hospital bed.”
“We’re in the midst of a movement that says Black Lives Matter, and if that’s truly the case, then it means that Mumia’s life and legacy must matter. And the causes that he sacrificed his life and freedom for must matter as well.”
Jamal is a former member of the original Black Panthers. Officer Danny Faulkner pulled over a car belonging to the brother of Jamal. Jamal shot Officer Faulkner in the back, knocking him down on the ground. He then stood over the injured officer and he shot him in the head, killing him according to four eyewitnesses.
Kaepernick claims that Jamal has declared himself on numerous occasions. That’s not true. Jamal has never denied he committed the crime. Neither has he admitted to it. But with four eyewitnesses, it least little room for doubt. But Jamal has become a hero to many, especially BLM.
“Employed by a radio station, Abu-Jamal was a member of the Black Panthers. During a routine traffic stop in Philadelphia in 1981, Faulkner stopped a vehicle belonging to Abu-Jamal’s younger brother William Cook,” the outlet reported. “A physical confrontation ensued, and Abu-Jamal, who was nearby at the time, shot Faulkner in the back and in the face, the latter shot while the officer lay bleeding on the ground. Four witnesses testified to this.”
“Abu-Jamal was also shot in the confrontation and, while recovering in a hospital, admitted he shot the policeman and said he hoped Faulkner would die.”
This is just one more battle that Kaepernick is doomed to be a failure. Jamal has been on the radio and he writes for various outlets. Hollywood celebrities have donated money and others put together entertaining skits and they marched demanding his release.
One person who was in the forefront was Rosie O’Donnell CIA code name “Fat and Furious.”
