Why say that? The judicial system has not changed. We are still a country of laws. And that has not changed. No matter how many times folks say that the judicial system has been weaponized. It simply is not true.

where the decision to prosecute depends on who you are

None so blind!

When state Supreme Courts can see “the law” so diametrically different from the federal SCOTUS, we’ve become a country of interpretation. When a case could have a very different outcome based on the venue or the judge, we can’t say we’re a nation of laws. When the outcome of cases is very different based on who is the defendant, it’s no longer a system of laws. When we strategize about finding a judge based on who appointed him/her, we’ve supplanted the law.

Justice used to be blind. Now the blindness is in those who cannot see the game that our justice system has become.

:point_up: He’s right, folks.

WE would all get charged with multiple felonies for keeping classified documents in our homes.

WE would all get charged with multiple felonies for deleting tens of thousands of pieces of evidence.

Democrat politicians will NOT be charged (much less prosecuted) for the crimes that land us peasants in the Gen Pop prisons.

That’s the way it’s always been. NONE of that has changed.

Well, no reasonable prosecutor would charge a Democrat.

Trump will be on all the ballots. And will highly likely be reelected.

And Mickey Spillane.

Uh, huh…all while the Colorado Supreme Court uses the conclusion of an “insurrection” to keep Trump off of a ballot, for something he’s never been charged with or convicted of. This is an example of why I say what I did. They are no longer trustworthy and should be removed from the bench…PERIOD!

Well, being a resident here, I’ll do what I can to get them removed, but I’m up against overwhelming odds.

And if Trump was charged and convicted of insurrection in a court of law, you would abide by it?

If he were charged in federal court with Insurrection under Title 18 USC, and convicted, the law would disqualify him from office. What you should be asking is why no federal prosecutor has even attempted to bring the charge over the past 3 years. Ponder that for a while.

Can’t speak for Smyrna, but I certainly would. From earlier – in a reply to you:

If Trump actually participated and orchestrated an actual insurrection…yes and there’s no question about it. Now flip the coin and consider that an insurrection is being fed but no one brought a gun. That in itself PROVES the assertion is ridiculous.

Having a gun has nothing to do with the law. However the law does mention the destruction of government property. And that was done.

By many of the Jan 6 rioters and much more by the Floyd rioterers.

But not by Trump.

And here is where the court of public opinion kicks in.
IMHO What some folks are paying attention to regarding January 6th.
Some of those convicted have stated that they came to Washington D.C. at Trump’s request.
Some folks have paid attention to how Trump threw his VP under the bus. And how Trump did nothing for
a whole bunch of time. And the fact that some of those who were there said that they left because Trump tolk them to. We shall see what the government provides as evidence in the D.C. trial.

The elements of the crime under Title 18 USC, not the random trends of public opinion, determine if an individual is an insurrectionist in this country. If you need to try to inflame public opinion, because of the absence of the elements, you don’t have a case.
