March Madness Extends into April

Started collecting all the articles coming in on e-mail and messenger about the unpresidented indictment of our former president. Starting with what came in after TGIF – March Ends With Extreme Madness was posted at 11:51 AM EST last Friday:

Trump to appear in NYC court on Tuesday; mugshot, fingerprinting expected: Report

What’s with the title:

From the article:

…”While Trump will be the first former president indicted, he will not be the last if that is the standard for prosecution,” he explained.” It is still hard to believe that Bragg would primarily proceed on such a basis. There have been no other crimes discussed over months, but we will have to wait to read the indictment to confirm the grounds.”

He pointed out the DOJ, the FEC, and even Bragg’s office earlier decided there was no case….

…”The Justice Department went down this road before and it did not go well. They tried to prosecute former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards on stronger grounds (which I also criticized) and failed. In that case, campaign officials and donors were directly involved in covering up an affair that produced a child. …The prosecution … collapsed.”

And he said the prosecution already has been “tarnished” in the case, because one attorney who worked earlier on the case published a book about the evidence, “something that some of us view as a highly unprofessional and improper act.”

And Bragg ran for office “on his pledge to bag Trump.”

Bragg faces hurdles from the statute of limitations, too, in his “race to the bottom in political prosecutions,” he said….


If this is the “new standard” then…

Biden’s list of charges and counts would be growing like the national debt!

Trump Attorney Says Former President ‘Ready to Fight,’ Arraignment Expected Early Next Week

From the article:

Former President Donald Trump is set to be arraigned sometime “early next week” after a Manhattan grand jury voted for his indictment, Trump’s attorney Joseph Tacopina said on Thursday.

“We’re working that out—maybe Tuesday,” Tacopina, who has represented high-profile clients such as Michael Jackson and rapper Jay-Z, told The Epoch Times in an interview late Thursday.

“I’ve spoken to him,” Tacopina said when asked about Trump’s reaction to the indictment. “He’s angry, disappointed, but he’s ready to fight. He’s a pretty tough guy—his knees don’t buckle, so he’ll be ready to go.”…

…‘Days of Dictatorships’

According to Tacopina, Trump’s indictment echoes the means political opponents have used against each other under dictatorships.

“This harkens back to the days of dictatorships—Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, and communist China—where you pick a political opponent you don’t like and you want to do away with him, you find a crime,” Tacopina said. “That’s what happened here.”

As an example of this political animus toward Trump, Tacopina cited former Manhattan Special Assistant District Attorney Mark Pomerantz’s account in his book “People vs. Donald Trump: An Inside Account.” The Manhattan DA’s office hired Pomerantz to assist in its probe of Trump’s finances in February 2021. Pomerantz resigned in February 2022 and published his book in February 2023 documenting the investigation into Trump.

“Pomerantz’s book basically laid that out—they said they hated Donald Trump—he would pay the prosecutor … for three years, scouring his records—personal records, business records—and they come up with absolutely nothing except this ridiculous [case],” Tacopina said.

J. Anthony Jordan, president of the District Attorneys Association of the State of New York, told media outlets in a statement in February that Pomerantz violated professional ethics “by writing and releasing a book in the midst of an ongoing case.”

“We’re indicting the former president United States of America, for the first time, on a civil confidentiality agreement that’s legal across the board in any state in this country, and nothing more,” Tacopina said. “And it’s really, really, really troubling to me.”

“It’s a very sad day for the United States of America because today’s the day, I believe, that the rule of law died,” the attorney said. “And it’s not something that anyone should be happy about, whether you’re aligned with the right or the left.”…


And fight he will!


According to a wicked witch from the west…

Another new standard!

From the article:

Ex-House speaker Nancy Pelosi is getting scorched on social media for turning the American basics of justice and law upside down.

After the New Manhattan DA on Thursday released his political indictment of President Trump, she demanded that Trump “prove innocence.’

That’s the reverse of the legal standard that no one has to “prove innocence,” but in all cases prosecutors must prove guilt, in criminal cases beyond a reasonably doubt. It’s a standard that law students would be expected to be fully familiar with even before they begin their training.

The Grand Jury has acted upon the facts and the law.

No one is above the law, and everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence.

Hopefully, the former President will peacefully respect the system, which grants him that right.

— Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) March 31, 2023

TRENDING: Soros, top Dems pour millions into party ahead of ‘nonpartisan’ state Supreme Court race

Pelosi, apparently creating her own, brand new standard for criminal cases – in this case for President Trump, demanded, “The grand jury has acted upon the facts and the law. No one is above the law, and everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence. Hopefully, the former president will peacefully respect the system, which grants him that right.”…


Guilty until proven innocent?!?!

DeSantis, GOPers respond to ‘un-American’ Trump indictment

From the article:

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis slammed the indictment of former-President Donald Trump as “un-American” on Thursday after news criminal charges for Trump were revealed.

DeSantis wrote the following statement on Twitter:

The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head.

It is un-American.

The Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney has consistently bent the law to downgrade felonies and to excuse criminal misconduct. Yet, now he is stretching the law to target a political opponent.

Florida will not assist in an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda.

The popular Florida governor is widely considered Trump’s top competitor for the 2024 GOP presidential nominee.

Republicans nationwide rallied behind Trump, accusing Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is leading the case, of weaponizing the law for political purposes.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) tweeted, “Here we go again — an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump.”

“I’m directing relevant committees to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions,” he added.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) simply tweeted, “Outrageous.”

Outrageous.— Rep. Jim Jordan (@Jim_Jordan) March 30, 2023

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) tweeted a statement warning about how the unprecedented prosecution threatens the future of the American republic.

“Never before in American history has the party in power targeted a former president with criminal charges. Such an unprecedented step should not be taken lightly. But the left-wing prosecutor in New York City reportedly has charged President Trump with a convoluted legal theory already rejected by his predecessor and the Department of Justice,” Cotton wrote. “I hope that the courts dismiss the indictment as a matter of law, and I urge the prosecutors pursing President Trump to carefully consider the harm caused to our republic if flimsy charges against former presidents become a new common practice in our politics.”…


The Trumpinator ain’t gonna hide!

On a different note, if (when) DeSantis get in the race, we need a handle for him. How about:

Rep. Jordan Says Subpoena ‘On the Table’ for Manhattan DA After Trump Indictment

From the article:

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said a subpoena is on the table if it will compel Manhattan District Attorney (DA) Alvin Bragg to testify about his recent decision to prosecute former President Donald Trump.

Last month, after Trump revealed he is facing prosecution by Bragg’s office, Jordan joined Reps. James Comer (R-Ky.) and Bryan Steil (R-Wisc.) on a letter questioning Bragg’s case. The letter asked Bragg to turn over any communications his office has with the New York County District Attorney’s Office or the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the DOJ’s component entities, or other federal law enforcement agencies relating to his case against Trump, and Bragg’s testimony regarding the prosecution.

On March 30, Bragg’s office confirmed it was going forward with a case against Trump. Leslie Dubeck, the general counsel for the Manhattan DA’s office, sent a response letter to Jordan and the other Republican lawmakers the following day, saying compliance with their requests for documents and testimony “would interfere with law enforcement” and a “congressional review of a pending criminal investigation usurps executive powers.”


Hey Leslie, Congress doesn’t have “…executive powers”!!!

ArtI.S8.C18.7.1 Overview of Congress’s Investigation and Oversight Powers

From the article:

Article I, Section 8, Clause 18:

[The Congress shall have Power . . . ] To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.

Congress’s power to conduct investigations stands on equal footing with its authority to legislate and appropriate.1 Although the power of inquiry was not expressly provided for in the Constitution, it has nonetheless been acknowledged as an essential and appropriate auxiliary to the legislative function derived implicitly from Article I’s vesting of legislative Powers in the Congress.2 This implied constitutional prerogative to gather information related to legislative activity is both critical in purpose, as Congress cannot legislate wisely or effectively in the absence of information, and extensive in scope, as Congress is empowered to obtain pertinent testimony and documents through investigations into nearly any matter.3 Included within the scope of the power is the authority to initiate investigations, hold hearings, gather testimony or documents from witnesses, and, in situations where either a government or private party is not forthcoming, compel compliance with congressional requests through the issuance and enforcement of subpoenas….

Former Assistant Attorney General Jeff Clark Condemns Leaks, Secrecy Surrounding Trump Indictment

From the article:

Former Assistant Attorney General Jeff Clark decried selective leaks and the withholding of information from the general public as the nation waits in anticipation for former President Donald Trump to be arraigned on charges brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

Bragg’s office confirmed an indictment against Trump on Thursday evening, but the indictment remains sealed ahead of Trump’s initial court appearance on Tuesday. Clark questioned the decision to announce the indictment and allow rumors about the case to circulate throughout the news media and general public for several days before the charges are actually revealed….

Trump Attorney Announces Plans to File Motions to Dismiss, Alleging Prosecutorial Misconduct

From the article:

Joseph Tacopina, a lawyer defending former president Donald Trump in Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s hush money case, announced late Monday his plans to file “a host of” motions to dismiss, including one based on prosecutorial misconduct and selective prosecution.

“There will be a host of motions we’re going to make, including … a motion to dismiss based on selective prosecution and prosecutorial misconduct,” Tacopina told Fox News’s Hannity program late Monday, adding that the defense team will consider other motions after seeing the indictment, such as a venue change or statute of limitations considerations.

Trump’s arraignment hearing is set to begin at 2:15 p.m. ET on Tuesday, April 4, Lucian Chalfen, director of Public Information for the New York Court System, told The Epoch Times in a statement. Charges are expected to be revealed during this indictment….


As expected!

‘They are leaving millions of Americans voiceless in the face of tyranny’

Another day and another attack on conservative voices in America.

It is the Google-YouTube conglomerate that again is being accused of using its online power to “eradicate the web of conservative voices” after its decision to suspend Right Side Broadcasting Network.

RSBN was accused of “pushing content on the stolen elections, fraud in the 2020 elections, and [an absence] of opposing voices,” according to a report from The Gateway Pundit.

It’s a frequent claim from leftists and liberals who want to suppress concerns about America’s elections.

TRENDING: The frightening precedent of indicting an innocent former president

But the facts remain that a Media Research Center poll after the 2020 election revealed that Joe Biden almost undoubtedly would have lost key swing states – and the election, had social and legacy media not interfered in the election by suppressing damaging, but accurate, reporting about the Biden family’s international business schemes.

Further, there was the undue influence on election results from the $400 million plus that Mark Zuckerberg handed out through foundations to local election officials, who often used the windfall to recruit voters from Democrat districts.

Almost certainly without those factors, which came from outside America’s election process, the U.S. would be in the middle of President Trump’s second term now….

…”On Monday, RSBN received a notice from YouTube informing us that due to content violating their ‘elections misinformation’ policies, the platform has removed several videos. These include President Trump’s most recent rally in Waco, Texas, his remarks at CPAC, and our exclusive sit-down interview with him at Mar-a-Lago,” the network said….


Impeccable timing!?!?

Trump fans and critics converge on Manhattan as former president arrives for historic arraignment

From the artcle:


Separated by uniformed police and metal barriers, dozens of fans and foes of Donald Trump shouted, jeered and cursed at each other, waved flags and donned comical costumes while history played out just across the street in a Manhattan courthouse.

Anti-Trump protesters at one point rolled out a large banner that read, “Trump Lies All the Time,” prompting a brief scuffle as supporters of the former president damaged the banner.

The chilly spring afternoon was filled with a cacophony of chants, drums, whistles and the rotors of circling news helicopters….


But no unexpected riot hoped for by some!?!?

From the article:

…Trump vocally pleaded “not guilty” to all counts before Judge Juan Merchan, an avowed Democrat whose daughter has reportedly worked for Kamala Harris.

“It is not just about one payment,” said Bragg.

Jake Gibson, a federal law-enforcement producer for Fox News, said after Tuesday’s arraignment : “I think it’s worth noting, President Trump definitely glared at the D.A. Bragg when he left.

“He seemed to get up, look around the room. .. and then lock his eyes on Alvin Bragg.”

“Trump was the last one to walk in the hearing. And this was pretty intense. It’s not a huge room but there’s probably 50 reporters in there. There were 15, 20, 25 law enforcement officials that were on the end of each row.”

Alvin Bragg has shut down the entire city, called up 38,000 NYPD police officers, closed down the FDR Drive and is spending an estimated $200 million of city funds, all for a $130,000 NDA. I never thought I would see this level of corruption in the United States.

— Eric Trump (@EricTrump) April 4, 2023

Gibson continued: “There was Secret Service agents in there. There were the court police. There were just a lot of police in there. And they were very strict with the press. ‘We will kick you out of here. We see a phone, we’ll kick you out.’ People would try to sit up a little bit to look. ‘Sit down!’ This was a very serious … it was very intense in there.”

Will Donald Trump emerge unscathed from this drama?…

{To answer yes/no poll open article.}


And it will get much more intense!

From the article:

…President Donald Trump reacts to his arraignment on criminal charges from his Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida, on Tuesday, April 4, 2023. (Video screenshot)

“The only crime that I have committed is to fearlessly defend our nation from those who seek to destroy it.”

“The real criminal is the district attorney who leaked grand jury testimony for which he should be prosecuted or at a minimum he should resign.”

Trump specified that criminal as the “radical George Soros-backed prosecutor Alvin Bragg” who the former commander in chief says “campaigned on the fact that he would get President Trump … at any cost before he knew anything about me.”…

Is this drama propelling Trump to win the presidential election in 2024?

{To answer yes/no poll open article.}



Was the sudden change to indict on this investigation, which is the weakest of the ongoing three, only to encourage the other two to “get Trump out” of the 2024 election?

Can we ever have an honest election again?

Court Rejects Bragg’s Request for Restraining Order Against Jordan

From the Article:

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s urgent request to enter a restraining order against Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) was rejected on April 11, the same day it was filed.

U.S. District Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil, a Trump appointee, turned down Bragg’s emergency request for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against Jordan.

“The Court declines to enter the proposed Temporary Restraining Order and Order to Show Cause,” Vyskocil said, noting that she hadn’t yet received several documents that were referenced in Bragg’s filings.

She ordered Jordan and other defendants in the case to respond to the lawsuit and scheduled a hearing for April 19.

On April 11, Bragg sued Jordan for allegedly infringing on state sovereignty. Jordan has subpoenaed a former Bragg deputy and demanded documents from Bragg’s office regarding the prosecution of former President Donald Trump, who was indicted by a grand jury after being presented with charges by the Democrat district attorney.

Jordan “has no power under the Constitution to oversee state and local criminal matters,” Bragg’s suit stated.

Bragg’s office also asked the court to enter an order that would block Jordan and the House Judiciary Committee, which Jordan chairs, from enforcing the subpoena to former Manhattan prosecutor Mark Pomerantz and prohibit Pomerantz from complying with it.

“The Judiciary Committee’s subpoena to Mr. Pomerantz marks the first time in our nation’s history that Congress has used its compulsory process to interfere with an ongoing state criminal case. The District Attorney is likely to succeed on the merits because the subpoena exceeds Congress’s authority and obstructs New York’s sovereign right to enforce its criminal law,” prosecutors said in a filing in support of their motion for a temporary restraining order.

“The subpoena would also irreparably injure the District Attorney by, among other things, interfering with an ongoing criminal case, compromising grand jury secrecy and the attorney-client privilege, and disrupting his preparation for trial. Finally, the balance of the equities and the public interest favor the District Attorney because the subpoena undercuts federalism principles and the fair administration of justice by injecting politics into a state criminal case.”

The defendants haven’t yet lodged any filings.

‘They’re Obstructing’

Jordan said on Fox News that Bragg is obstructing a legitimate congressional investigation.

“They’re obstructing our investigation,” Jordan said. “We have a constitutional duty to get to the facts, particularly when you have a district attorney interfering with the most important election we have, which is the election of the commander-in-chief; the president of the United States.”…


Sovereign right of NY state to railroad…. a presidential canidate?
