Kangaroo Court

Tyranny from the Bench

Kangaroo Court for Trump

How low can our judicial system go? It has evolved into a cesspool of corruption; bias; election interference; and unadulterated evil. In their nefarious desperation, the Marxist Biden administration has pulled out all the stops to prevent the only candidate that can put “Humpty Dumpty together again” from getting elected as our 47th President to save our nation.

And where is the New York State Bar, or the US Attorney General in witnessing this travesty and tyranny coming from the bench of Judge Juan Merchan? Oh, I forgot … they are in cahoots with the ruthless Obama/Biden administration. I never thought it possible that one judge could get away with overseeing a trial while blatantly violating the Code of Conduct for United States Judges. In the Code of Conduct rules,

Canon 1 states:

“A Judge Should Uphold the Integrity and Independence of the Judiciary.” It further states, “Deference to the judgments and rulings of courts depends on public confidence in the integrity and independence of judges. The integrity and independence of judges depend in turn on their acting without fear or favor. Although judges should be independent, they must comply with the law and should comply with this Code.”

Do you think this “kangaroo court” we just witnessed under Merchan demonstrated integrity and judicial independence? Judicial independence is essential to ensure that judges exercise impartiality and maintain the rule of law. That means they should do their utmost to operate in a way that it is free from external influences. So, I guess it’s okay for Merchan (who donated to the Biden campaign) to oversee the trial of a former President and current candidate for the presidency while the judge’s daughter, Loren Merchan, continues as a Democratic strategist whose clients have fundraised off the Trump prosecution.

Canon 2 states:

“A Judge Should Avoid Impropriety and the Appearance of Impropriety in All Activities.”

This includes respect for the law. I don’t know about you, but placing a “gag order” on a defendant – because he might blurt out truth – seems a bit over the top. Oh, and isn’t that a violation of the defendant’s First Amendment rights?

And what kind of judge omits key facts and witnesses that would reinforce the case for the defense? Instead this corrupt clown in a black robe allows a completely salacious witness for the prosecution to spew smut (that has no real bearing on the charges for the defendant) simply to taint the jury’s opinion of the defendant. The White House, the DA office, and the corrupt judge are not only desperate, they are disgusting!

Canon 3 states:

“A Judge Should Perform the Duties of the Office Fairly, Impartially and Diligently.”

That means a judge should not engage in behavior that is harassing, abusive, prejudiced, or biased. This Canon goes on to say:

“A judge should accord to every person who has a legal interest in a proceeding, and that person’s lawyer, the full right to be heard according to law.” 

Then why would Merchan mandate heavy restrictions on an expert witness whom the defense wanted to testify?

“Do not pervert justice or show partiality.” Deuteronomy 16:19

The former commissioner on the Federal Elections Commission (FEC), Brad Smith was the expert witness the defense wanted to call. Trump’s attorneys wanted Smith to testify that the FEC does not consider expenses that exist, whether or not to an individual who is a candidate, as campaign expenses. But Merchan ruled that Smith could only testify on the background of the FEC; it’s function; make-up; general definitions for terms like “campaign contribution”; and the laws it enforces. In other words, Merchan restricted Smith from testifying whether or not the $130,000 payment to the convicted liar Michael Cohen made to porn star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election was a violation (or not.)

What’s worse is that Soros-funded Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg threw a “mystery crime” into the mix to magically turn a misdemeanor, that had passed the statute of limitations, into a felony. Yet, this hide-n-seek scheme was not clearly revealed to Trump and his team, as well as the jurors, until the deliberations would begin following bogus and verbose jury instructions.

Bragg never had authority to prosecute a federal crime. It should be noted that the federal agencies that do have that authority already investigated Trump and found no grounds on which to prosecute. But in desperation to continue the scheme to keep Trump from winning the Presidential Election in November, Bragg made up his own nefarious rendering of federal law. In cahoots with malicious Merchan, they purposely omitted disclosing the “mystery crime” in the indictment and denied the attempts by the defense to have full disclosure during the pretrial proceedings.

The Sixth Amendment of the US Constitution guarantees the right to a trial by an “impartial jury.” It requires that the jurors must be unbiased. Do you think the jury pool in Manhattan was impartial? What’s more disgraceful is that two of the jurors were attorneys (which is very uncommon to see) who failed to acquit the defendant purely on legal grounds.

In addition to requiring an impartial jury, the Sixth Amendment also necessitates the accused to “be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation.” Well, that certainly did not happen in Merchan’s unscrupulous courtroom. The Bragg/Merchan team hid this “mystery crime” in the weeds until closing arguments and jury instructions, as they vehemently lied that Trump had violated federal campaign law.

The original charge was a violation of New York’s election law ELN § 17-152 – Conspiracy to promote or prevent election. It states: “Any two or more persons who conspire to promote or prevent the election of any person to a public office by unlawful means and which conspiracy is acted upon by one or more of the parties thereto, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.”

This all led to Merchan reading his instructions to the jury about their upcoming deliberation. He read his litany of confusion and unconstitutional instructions and never provided the jury with a written copy of his convoluted instructions. This clown in a black robe then informed the jury that they didn’t have to agree unanimously to what actually happened in the case. He ambiguously cited three possible “mystery crimes” that allegedly were used to influence the election: the falsification of business records; a tax violation; and a federal election violation.

In other words, the jury got to go and play “eenie meenie miney mo” with the charges and roll the dice until they got just four jurors to agree on a conviction for each of the possible crimes (the falsification of business records; a tax violation; and a federal election violation.) Have you ever heard of splitting the jury into a 4-4-4 circus act to reach unanimity. Then DA Bragg bragged about what a great job he had done (cough, cough) by saying: “I did my job. Our job is to follow the facts and the law without fear or favor. And that’s exactly what we did here.” Thank you, George Soros!

The socialist leftists are always shouting one of their favorite phrases, “no one is above the law.” Well, there are a few exceptions like Hillary destroying classified records; Biden stealing classified documents as a Senator; the Biden crime family selling out America to reap millions of dollars; the countless thugs, rapists, and murderers not held to account but instead released from custody in New York and other cities; and let’s not forget the disbarred, serial perjurer Michael Cohen who testified in this hearing that he stole money from Trump. He could have faced up to 15 years in prison for stealing $60,000 from the Trump Organization. But, of course he won’t face any repercussions in this “justice” system.

So, where do we go from here? Can Americans ever again have trust our judicial system. Our government is like a 3-legged stool – Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches. As inept and ineffective as the Legislative Branch has shown in recent decades, they are still attached to the seat of the stool. Whereas, both the Executive and Judicial branches have clearly broken off due to the incorrigible corruption and Marxist tactics. And they say that Trump is a threat to democracy; yeah right!

The insatiable lust for power by the socialist left is getting more dangerous by the day. What rabbit will they pull out of the hat next? All the while they are too afraid and unprepared to address the issues that face America today – invasion at our southern border; failing/woke education system; economy in the toilet; more wars; weak military; uncontrolled crime; corrupt FBI, DOJ, White House, Congress; election fraud; human and drug trafficking, etc. They won’t discuss, debate, or even address these issues. Instead they just want to keep Trump from returning to the presidency by now claiming, “He’s a convicted felon!”

The sad part is that Biden has already nominated (and have been confirmed by the Senate) 201 federal judges. So the likelihood of decisions and antics demonstrated by Soros-funded clowns like Judge Merchan and Justice Engoron, who ruled in AG Letitia James lawsuit about alleged overvaluing Trump properties; and Judge Kaplan who ruled in the E. Jean Carroll sexual assault and defamation case, will continue.

This latest tyrannical stunt from malicious Merchan’s courtroom has turned the judicial system on its ear. Will there be accountability for these violations of the “Code of Conduct Rules for United States Judges?” Time will tell. In the meantime, both Trump supporters and non-supporters are aghast at the abuse and hypocritical injustice we have all witness. In fact from 6pm ET to midnight on Thursday, the Trump campaign it had received $34 million in fundraising! They have officially poked the bear, and the bear is on a mission!

Perhaps like me, some of you have gone through an array of emotions in the past 24 hours concerning these events. Hopefully, you can remember that in these times we have a Rock on Whom we can rely. God is in control and we have to rest in that truth. Also, please continue to pray, share truth with others, and vote to save our once-great nation.

 “Don’t be worried on account of the wicked; don’t be jealous of those who do wrong. They will soon disappear like grass that dries up; they will die like plants that wither. Trust in the Lord and do good; live in the land and be safe.” Psalm 37:1-3
