One state prosecutor and one civilian plaintiff have already won huge fines and damages from former President Donald Trump that may, with legal costs, exceed $500 million.

Trump awaits further civil and criminal liability in three other federal, state, and local indictments.

There are eerie commonalities in all these five court cases involving plaintiff E. Jean Carroll, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, New York Attorney General Letitia James, federal special counsel Jack Smith, and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

One, the prosecutors are either unapologetically left wing or associated with liberal causes. They filed their legal writs in big-city, left-wing America—Atlanta, New York, Washington—where liberal judges and jury pools predominate in a manner not characteristic of the country at large.

Two, the cases are overtly political. Bragg, James, and Willis have either campaigned for office or raised campaign funds by promising to get or even destroy Trump.

Carroll’s suit was funded by left-wing billionaire Reid Hoffman.

Smith sued to rush his court schedule in hopes of putting Trump on trial before the November election.

Three, there would not be any of these cases had Trump not run for the presidency or not been a conservative.

Carroll’s suit bypassed statute-of-limitation restrictions by prompting the intervention of a left-wing New York legislator. He passed a special bill, allowing a one-year window to waive the statute of limitations for sexual assault claims from decades past.

Until Trump, no New York prosecutor like James had ever filed a civil suit against a business for allegedly overvaluing real estate assets to obtain loans that bank auditors approved and were paid back in full, on time, and with sizable interest profits to the lending institutions.

Bragg bootstrapped a private nondisclosure agreement with Trump into a federal campaign violation in a desperate effort to find something on the former president.

Smith is also charging Trump with insurrectionary activity. But Trump has never been charged with insurrection, much less convicted of it.

Willis strained to find a way to criminalize Trump’s complaints about his loss of Georgia in the 2020 national election. She finally came up with a racketeering charge, usually more applicable to mafiosi and drug cartels.

Four, in all these cases, the charges could have been equally applicable to fellow left-wing public figures and officials.

President Joe Biden, like Trump, was accused of sexual assault decades earlier—by former staffer Tara Reade. Yet Reade was torn apart by the media and the Left for inconsistencies in her memory. By contrast, the wildly inconsistent and amnesiac Carroll won $83 million from Trump.

Smith created the precedent of charging Trump for unlawfully removing classified files and taking them to his private residence.

But the government simultaneously did not charge Biden for similar offenses. Yet Biden had removed files not for two years but for more than 30. He stored them not in one location but several.

Biden’s rickety garage was a mess, not a secure family compound like Trump’s Florida estate. Moreover, Biden did so while a senator and vice president, without any presidential authority to declassify almost any presidential document he wished.

Biden never came forward to report the crime for over 30 years—until Trump was charged. Indeed, Biden was caught on tape six years ago admitting to his ghostwriter that he possessed classified files but never reported it.

Bragg might have noticed that both Hillary Clinton (fined $113,000) and Barack Obama (fined $350,000) broke campaign financing laws. Neither was subject to federal criminal charges by local prosecutors.

An array of left-wing celebrities, politicians, 2004 House members, former Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams all recently challenged the results of elections. They sought either to delay or redo ballot counting or, on the federal level, to sidetrack electors to ignore popular votes in their respective states.

These lawfare cases are part of other efforts that were highly partisan and without merit. Recall the Trump “Russian collusion” hoax and the “Russian disinformation” farce over Hunter Biden’s laptop.

In another first, some blue states are suing to take Trump’s name off the ballot for “insurrection,” a crime for which he has never been charged.

Total up the deaths, damage, and length of the summer 2020 Antifa/Black Lives Matter riots. Then compare the tally to the one-day Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021.

The former proved far more lethal, long-lasting, and destructive. Yet very few of the 14,000 arrested rioters in 2020 were ever prosecuted, much less convicted.

By contrast, the Biden administration sought to jail hundreds for crimes allegedly committed Jan. 6, such as “illegal parading.”

We are entering a dangerous era in America.

Ideology and party affiliations increasingly determine guilt and punishment. Opponents are first targeted, and then laws are twisted and redefined to convict them.

The Left is waging lawfare with the implicit message to political opponents: Either keep quiet or suffer the consequences.

Democrat voters, please, wake up and smell the weeds since the roses have been demolished!!! Any justice system that isn’t the same for all isn’t a justice system; it’s a two or even three tiered justice system!! Those of us who are at the bottom, well, we don’t like that feeling!!! Fairness regardless of skin color, religion or political affiliation is NOT happening in this country!!

I would hope that the higher courts would see the injustice and throw out the cases. I would also like to see President Trump sue every one of them into the poor house. Wrongful persecution needs to be stopped.

Victor tells it like it is. We have a two tiered justice system in this country. Like the division in this country between the woke and the Magas. All created by ole Joe. With the help of Soros to buy the judges and DA’s and AG’s. Anyone who believes this loony toons woman that Trump would even give her a second look has a screw loose. Only Trump was already found guilty before the trial even began. Trump can’t get a fair trial, just like his people that served with him in the White House. They all were compromised with false documents just like all the charges brought against Trump. I heard a CNN talking head interviewing an investor who explained to her why he wouldn’t any longer do business in New York. She kept saying Trump committed fraud. What fraud he asked, there was no fraud. Even when he said let’s leave Trump out of it and take a normal businessman. They do the same as Trump did. This goes on over and over all over the world and nobody has ever been charged. Because there is no victim. The banks weren’t hurt nobody was hurt. What did she say at the end I don’t care what you say Trump committed fraud otherwise they would not have charged him with that. Here we are. The innocent till proven guilty is not in her vocabulary. Especially if your name is Trump or you are a supporter. We have to stand up. Tell your congressman no right to vote for the migrants. Stand up because if we don’t we are lost. And we end up in ole Joe’s treadmill which we won’t be able to stop for it is way too late.

All I’ve heard from democrats is if Trump is becomes president democracy will be destroyed. Meanwhile, the democrats are actively destroying the republic. Another lie from the democrats is if Trump becomes president, it will lead to tyranny. Meanwhile, the democrats are currently leading this country towards tyranny. The democrats forget that We the people have the power and We the people must use that power to oust the tyrants.

Anyone who thinks Biden will be the actual November candidate is fooling themselves. Biden will bow out at the convention (or be gently forced) and Democrats will coronate their new king/queen then… diversity hires (at least the Veep), of course,

Do our so called conservatives even care? What the heck is going on? Where’s the out cry? Why are our big three news outlets controlled by socialists? Don’t they have to apply for the use of public airwaves? Don’t conservative people deserve any representation and truth on the heritage networks? The legislators need to demand media representation for all not just propaganda news for leftists.

It’s all about usurping power by any means necessary. They also seem to WANT civil disobedience, and I suspect they will pencil-whip any kind of civil disobedience and outspoken, articulate messaging into “threats”, in order to illegally enact laws that would further limit our freedoms. It’s coming… just wait and see how much more damage and mayem these former 1970’s hippies will cause. It will be off the charts.

And Biden has the unmitigated gall to say this election is about democracy. Just when you think the Democratic Party can’t get any lower, they find ways to do so. It’s incredible. Where are the “statesmen” in that party that are supposed to put their country first? Everything they do is about maximizing power not doing the right thing. I’m not sure they know what the honest path is anymore. They depend on an uninformed electorate and people that vote like zombies for Democrats because “my father always voted that way.” You’d think the border crisis, inflation, a foreign policy in shambles, and ridiculous executive orders would be large clues. No, they would rather have a president that turns into a Roomba after he’s done speaking.

The injustice or the Democrat prosecutors as well as many other high ranking government officials, is nothing more than Communism and most likely treason! Hopefully we as American Patriot Citizens that follow the constitution, will be able to take our country back. When that happens we must make it a priority to investigate corruption in the government. Those officials that have violated their oath and the Constitution and committed crimes, must be prosecuted and punished to the fullest extent of the law, if found guilty! And if those crimes constitute treason they should be punished by death, plus all personal assets seized and placed in the general fund of the United States. These criminals must be punished for the destruction of our country, But according to the constitution and the law. Which should not be to difficult considering how blatantly they have violated the law! Let’s hope people actually wake up and realize that the Criminal treasonous officials that are now in charge of this country and hell bent on the destruction of our freedoms and of this Constitutional Republic! Hopefully they will stand up and vote against the tyrannical government officials that hold office today!

Thought this was about the Project 2025 “worship” regulation they want to initiate – Blue Laws being put into effect as in days of old stating that you MUST worship God on Sunday. This is not constitutional at all. No matter which ‘religion’ you are the government does not have the legal right to decide which day of the week you is ruled as the “default” day of worshiping God. Page 579 of the Project 2025 manual is where to find it. Try telling Trump to force this on Melania or Ivanka or Jared, or millions of SDAs who have decided to follow Trump and get America back to where our forefathers aimed it to be – FREEDOM OF RELIGION; or tell the Muslims to change from their Friday worship, or the Hebrew roots worshipers from the original day of worship according to YeHoVaH/Yeshua on the day of Creation in Genesis and again in Exodus 20 when the LORD told the Israelites not to forget to worship Him as in the beginning and He even put it in the 10 Commandments in the 4th Commandment; and Jesus never ever changed that day from sundown Friday – sundown Saturday nor did He Himself worship on any other day but The Sabbath, the 7th Day, as in the beginning along with all his disciples/apostles. Folks, we are not seeing what the Heritage Foundation is doing – trying to all all the shots on when we worship our God and Creator. AND, no I am not an SDA; I found it myself after years of study. I fellowship with my Messiah/Savior and Creator on Saturday along with prayerful study and worship with my Bible – His only letter to His children. No manmade religion, no man/woman person, no denominational leader – My God.

It is very true that if the Left (and the Democrap Party) didn’t have double standards, they would have no standards, at all. The legal issues were all intended to assure that Trump would be the Republican nominee, assuming that widespread Trump hatred would make him the weakest Republican For-Sale-Joe Buyden could face in November. Once that objective had been virtually realized, they pivoted to the disqualification “effort”, which they likely knew wouldn’t fly, but which they hoped would further damage him in the vote. They have hopes that they can get some convictions in the myriad of criminal persecutions, to influence undecided voters, and to further remind the haters of their hatred. The Democrap Party has created a new and very disruptive method of politics, which may forever cloud the American landscape.

Welcome to the 3rd World Banana Republic, brought to you courtesy of Communism and the Left! Show us the man and I’ll show you the crime, only now it’s not from Lavrenti Beria, but by tinpot dictators like Leticia James, Alvin Bragg and Fani ‘Bootycall’ Willis. Nevermind the rampant issues that degrade the standard of living for their constituents; no, those are but trivial concerns. Now, the radicals have power and they’ll use to punish their political enemies and line their pockets.

When is the Communist DOJ going to charge Dictator Beijing biden for corruption, Stealing Sensitive Highly Classified Documents, Selling Out the United States while Senator, VP, and as illegitimate president who committed Election Fraud, Paying/Bribing Terrorist and Pardoning Terrorist, election interference, Illegal Alien Terrorist Invasion allowing the United States to be INVADED, espionage, and treason?
The list goes on and on and on with overwhelming evidence proving he is GUILTY of ALL CHARGES and documented by Records and the FAKE news media.
Take CBS for example hiding files on Hunter’s laptop after firing the Journalist who uncovered them. Even the corrupt FAKE news protects their CRIMINAL Dictator Beijing biden from his first day as Senator on thru to his last day in the White House Destroying the United States.
But, no. The Communist DOJ making up FAKE crimes against President Trump (Security Cameras Suddenly Pan Away at Pipe Bomb Response) and the J6 Defendants that are Unconstitutionally held and ATTACKING AMERICANS FREEDOMS and CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS including UNCONSTITUTIONALLY CENSORING AMERICANS and SPYING on our Bank Accounts while his Illegal Alien Terrorist run free in our country without any documents, tracking, or whereabouts living Free off AMERICAN TAXPAYERS.

Sickening that something like this political persecution is happening in America. Those who are doing this are low intelligence leftists whose prime desire is to destroy America.. They have nothing to offer…only envy of a man who has accomplished something in his life; and they have done nothing, except be on the take during their worthless livess. .

The Dems just keep throwing $hit at the wall until they can find something that will stick (but they NEVER will) ! They don’t care that they are making the United States look weak to the rest of the World. All the Dems care about is taking down President Trump, AT ANY PRICE TO OUR COUNTRY ! The United States is circling the toilet bowl at the hands of the Left and if we don’t get it back soon, the Great United States will be down the drain…then it won’t be OUR COUNTRY, it will belong to a few high powered Dems who want us to follow the path to Socialism. Let’s MAGA ! PRESIDENT TRUMP WE NEED YOU ! MAGA

All of America can see what’s happening. Has everyone forgot about ALL of the things she did & it was ALL overlooked. During Trump’s Presidency they tried to impeach him on made up lies, made up by the Democratic Party & Hillary.
Trump’s refusal to accept the results of the stolen election and his announced intention to run again, left the Democratic controlled Media, Prosecutors, & Judges no choice.
Trump, his family, & any Conservative that stand with Trump, must be removed by any means!
A sad time in the history of the Republic, when lawfare has been used to remove a Presidential Canidate, Influence Elections & Persecute American Conservatives.

I’m so sick of all the Dems. being so out of hand with Trump. They get away with everything and nobody blinks but Trump has had nothing but SH*T when he was one of the best Presidents we had for a long time. He had our country in the best shape it had been in years and Biden takes money out of the taxpayers pockets to pay for everything like illegal immigrants, other countries wars, their own pockets, etc. etc. etc. I hope and pray that Trump wins so we can get our country back and not lose it to Democrat socialists.
