U.S. Rep. Gary Palmer (R-AL) tweeted: What we are seeing is the attempted political assassination of a former President. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s spurious legal case should never have been entertained & his flagrant abuse of the justice system is leading the nation down a very dark & dangerous path.

U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) tweeted: “Tonight’s indictment of Donald Trump isn’t about the law. It’s about power. Raw power. It’s the Democrat Party telling the nation they will stop at nothing to control the outcome of the next presidential election. It is an assault on our democracy, pure and simple.”

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif) : “Alvin Bragg has irreparably damaged our country in an attempt to interfere in our Presidential election. As he routinely frees violent criminals to terrorize the public, he weaponized our sacred system of justice against President Donald Trump. The American people will not tolerate this injustice, and the House of Representatives will hold Alvin Bragg and his unprecedented abuse of power to account.”

Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fl) tweeted: 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.

Sundance: New York Times: President Trump Has Been Indicted by Manhattan Grand Jury – Indictment Under Seal, Terms for Arrest Ongoing

Here’s what else you need to know: ♦ Mr. Bragg and his lawyers will likely attempt to negotiate Mr. Trump’s surrender. If he agrees, it will raise the prospect of a former president, with the Secret Service in tow, being photographed and fingerprinted in the bowels of a New York State courthouse. ♦ The prosecution’s star witness is Michael D. Cohen, Mr. Trump’s former fixer who paid the $130,000 to keep Ms. Daniels quiet. Mr. Cohen has said that Mr. Trump directed him to buy Ms. Daniels’s silence, and that Mr. Trump and his family business, the Trump Organization, helped cover the whole thing up. The company’s internal records falsely identified the reimbursements as legal expenses, which helped conceal the purpose of the payments.

Tucker Carlson: Trump indictment is ‘very serious’: Rod Blagojevich

Orden: Manhattan’s DA wanted a Friday Trump arrest. Trump’s team said no.

The exchange, which was relayed to POLITICO by a law-enforcement source and confirmed by Joe Tacopina, a lawyer for the former president, underscores the extremely delicate, unprecedented nature of the indictment. Until Thursday, no ex-president in history had been criminally charged. And both the charges itself and the application of them have placed the country on uncharted legal and political terrain. A spokesperson for the D.A.’s office didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Trump is expected to surrender to the Manhattan D.A.’s office, but Tacopina said that no precise date had been set for it. Ultimately the Secret Service will have to coordinate the conditions of the surrender with court officials and the New York Police Department.

Hoft: INSANITY: MSNBC Brings on the Most Corrupt Prosecutor in US History, Andrew Weissmann, to Discuss the Rule of Law

Andrew Weissmann is responsible for more corruption at the DOJ than perhaps any person in history.  He’s likely behind these unconstitutional and criminal attacks on President Trump.  He’s arguably the most corrupt prosecutor in US history, so it’s not surprising that he was invited on MSNBC to discuss the “rule of law” last night. Andrew Weissmann was intimately involved in some of the most egregious corruption scandals in US history. Weissmann was involved in FBI activities with the mob in New York in the 1990s.  He was a key member of the Enron Task Force in the early 2000s and also was involved in the sale of Uranium One under Obama.  After all of his corrupt acts, he then led the corrupt Mueller Special Counsel. In all of these scandals, Weissmann’s actions have been consistently corrupt and abhorrent.

“This is Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history. From the time I came down the golden escalator at Trump Tower, and even before I was sworn in as your President of the United States, the Radical Left Democrats – the enemy of the hard-working men and women of this Country – have been engaged in a Witch-Hunt to destroy the Make America Great Again movement. You remember it just like I do: Russia, Russia, Russia; the Mueller Hoax; Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine; Impeachment Hoax 1; Impeachment Hoax 2; the illegal and unconstitutional Mar-a-Lago raid; and now this.” “The Democrats have lied, cheated and stolen in their obsession with trying to ‘Get Trump,’ but now they’ve done the unthinkable – indicting a completely innocent person in an act of blatant Election Interference.” “Never before in our Nation’s history has this been done. The Democrats have cheated countless times over the decades, including spying on my campaign, but weaponizing our justice system to punish a political opponent, who just so happens to be a President of the United States and by far the leading Republican candidate for President, has never happened before. Ever.” “Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, who was hand-picked and funded by George Soros, is a disgrace. Rather than stopping the unprecedented crime wave taking over New York City, he’s doing Joe Biden’s dirty work, ignoring the murders and burglaries and assaults he should be focused on. This is how Bragg spends his time!”


Vespa: Here’s One Shocking Liberal Media Reaction to Trump’s Indictment

The saying that ‘you can indict a ham sandwich’ speaks to how easy it is for these investigative bodies to dole out charges, especially if that jury is comprised of the most ardent liberals in the country reviewing whether the former president, one of the most polarizing figures in politics, committed a crime. Trump is anathema to the Left. Of course, these people bought into Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s cockamamie legalese that elevated misdemeanors into felony charges. To boot, the statute of limitations had expired for the charges being considered.

Morris: Pro-trans Kentucky protesters arrested after swarming state capitol amid House vote to override Beshear’s veto

“The Sergeant of Arms requested that KSP assist in restoring order today in the House gallery chambers. KSP gave each individual the option to leave without any enforcement action or be placed under arrest,” Blanton said. “KSP arrested 19 individuals. They have been cited for criminal trespassing 3rd degree. The Franklin County District Court authorized that the individuals could be released on their own recognizance.” Last week, Beshear vetoed the legislation that prohibits transgender procedures for minors, as well as restricts bathrooms based on biological sex. Additionally, the bill also bans instruction about sexual orientation and gender identity in schools and empowers teachers to decline using a student’s preferred pronoun.

VDH: Left-Wing Violence Chic

A transgender Tennessee mass shooter this week executed three adults and three nine-year-old children at a Nashville private Christian school. Supposedly she left behind her a manifesto justifying her mass murdering. As of this writing, law enforcement officials have declined to make the document public.
Yet in about a nano-second after the news was disclosed, the left-wing activist machine kicked in, led by politicians, entertainers, and the media. Three predictable themes surfaced. The first was led by none other than President Joe Biden. He lectured that guns were the cause of the mass deaths, not the free will of a psychopathic killer. Few noted that the shooter illegally purchased firearms by hiding her documented record of emotional disorders. Second, America was told that it would serve no purpose to publish the shooter’s manifesto. Apparently, this exception to the usual practice was due to fears her manifesto would hurt the transgender cause. Third,  . . .

Greenfield: U.S. Marshals Were Banned From Arresting Leftist Supreme Court Protesters

Now there’s direct evidence that the Biden administration not only refused to protect Supreme Court justices in the wake of the Dobbs decision pro-abortion protests at their homes, but specific orders were given not to arrest the leftists. Sen. Katie Britt (R-Ala.) unveiled a series of training slides used to prepare Marshals for their assignments as she grilled Attorney General Merrick Garland at a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing Tuesday. The slides instructed the Marshals to “avoid​, unless absolutely necessary,​ any criminal enforcement​”​ ​involving protesters and that “making arrests and initiating prosecutions was not the goal” of their being stationed outside the residences of the court’s six conservative jurists. Just in case there was any ambiguity…

Continetti: Biden’s Mideast Mess

Think it’s impossible to screw up two countries at once? You’ve never seen President Joe Biden in action. On March 27, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that his government would pause the progress through the Knesset of a controversial judicial bill until later this spring. Netanyahu’s decision came after weeks of mounting street protests over the reform, which would allow the legislature to rein in the judiciary. Military reservists stopped reporting for duty. Israel’s largest union declared a general strike. U.S. officials were critical. So, when Netanyahu suspended the measure, U.S. ambassador to Israel Tom Nides welcomed the move. Asked when Netanyahu might visit President Biden in the White House, Nides said: “I’m sure he’ll be coming relatively soon.” […]  Every democracy has its internal debates. In recent weeks Paris has been the site of violent demonstrations over French president Emmanuel Macron’s unilateral hike in the retirement age. Farmers in the Netherlands have taken direct action against environmental regulation. In Mexico, where President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has gutted the electoral commission, democratic backsliding is not theoretical. It is happening in real time. Then there are the nondemocracies worthy of condemnation: Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, to name a few in our hemisphere. Maybe Biden could find time to meddle with them. Yet Israel is singled out. Israel is where pressure is brought to bear. Why? Three reasons: PERSONAL. Media coverage has focused on the long history between Biden and Netanyahu. “There is no love lost between the two leaders, . . .

Dinan: Weaponization hearing finds at least 20 White House employees involved in tech censorship

Louisiana’s attorney general called Thursday for federal employees to be fired, lose their retirement benefits and face civil lawsuits if they are found to have pressured technology companies to censor opposing viewpoints. Jeff Landry made his suggestion to Congress during a hearing of the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee investigating “weaponization” of the federal government. He detailed what he labeled a “vast censorship enterprise” that ran deep into the Biden administration.He and Sen. Eric Schmitt, Missouri Republican, said documents they obtained in a lawsuit reveal that the FBI, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Census Bureau, Dr. Anthony Fauci and multiple people at the White House took steps to pressure tech companies to shut down narratives with which they disagreed on the Hunter Biden laptop or the COVID-19 pandemic.

Binder: Biden’s DHS Admits Many of the 85K Lost Migrant Children Released into U.S. Are Being Labor Trafficked

“We’ve got 85,000 Unaccompanied Alien Children … who have been released in the U.S. and HHS has lost track of these unaccompanied children,” Blackburn said. “… what you’re doing on the border is causing 85,000 children to be lost, can’t find them, and not knowing if they’re being trafficked, put in gangs, put in the sex trade.” Blackburn asked DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas how many are being trafficked and what the administration is doing to find these lost UACs. Mayorkas, though, replied by suggesting that DHS is focused on busting labor trafficking schemes because many of the UACs are ending up in brutal factory jobs. […]  The admission is significant, as the Biden administration has sought to downplay the link between the nation’s UAC pipeline and labor trafficking.

Marshall: More Mail-In Ballots Were Rejected Than Margin Of Victory In Nevada Senate Race

According to data from Nevada’s Secretary of State: 95,556 ballots were sent to undeliverable addresses, 8,036 were rejected by election officials, and 1.2 million ballots were never returned to be counted. To put the figures in perspective, Democratic incumbent Catherine Cortez Masto defeated Republican challenger Adam Laxalt by 7,928 votes — less than the 8,036 ballots rejected upon receipt by election officials. To determine whether a ballot is authentic, Nevada processes them via signature verification. This means election officials compare signatures on file to those on return envelopes to determine whether ballots are accepted. Such a system has a lot of room for human error, however. This past midterm election season, for example, a Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist tricked election officials into accepting six ballots with his signature (this is why states like Minnesota and Florida also require the last four digits of a voter’s Social Security number on return envelopes so they’re not solely relying on signature verification to determine legitimacy).

Harris: On Leftist Scorecards Women Now Rank Below Transgender Males, Transgender Females And Practically Everything

Let’s start with the Left’s big push for drag shows. A day doesn’t pass without a story surfacing about some sort of an incident surrounding a drag show, either at an elementary school, or a public library. Those two locations that the Left is so focused on should tell you volumes about the mentality of liberals. Anyway, what is a drag show? The majority of the performers are gay men dressed flamboyantly as women. Very rarely is there an actual woman involved, and on the rare occasion that there is, she has to dress and behave just as flamboyantly so she appears to be a man, dressed as a woman. Doesn’t sound inclusive of women to me. In fact, if you think about it, a drag show is really a parody of women. Not only is it a parody, but it’s also a ridiculously hideous display of stupidity. Drag shows make women look absurd without even involving women. Now let’s go to the opposite end of the spectrum. If you are a woman who has chosen to stay home and raise your family, you are despised by the Left. A group of women that have made this choice decided to promote it by calling themselves “Trad-Wives”, which is short for “traditional” wives. So, did the “inclusive” Left embrace these women? I mean after all, isn’t the liberal mantra just to be yourself? Of course they didn’t. The Left’s mantra of “be yourself” only applies to when your agenda agrees with theirs.

LaChance: Arizona Democrats Sue to Keep Spoiler ‘No Labels’ Candidate Off 2024 Ballot

“After campaigning on fighting for democracy, the Arizona Democratic Party is reportedly suing to stop a third-party organization from accessing the state’s presidential ballot in the 2024 election.”  […]  State Democratic leaders are planning to file the lawsuit against Secretary of State Adrian Fontes on Thursday as a way to reverse his decision to recognize the centrist group No Labels as a third-party ticket in the presidential election. The move reflects growing concern among Democrats that a “spoiler” candidate could derail President Joe Biden’s hopes of being reelected and threaten the party’s chances of maintaining control of the Senate. The lawsuit accuses Fontes of violating state laws when accepting signature petitions from No Labels to receive access to the ballot, according to the Washington Post. Democratic officials claim the accompanying affidavits were signed and approved before the minimum number of petitions were gathered.
