The effort Biden’s Justice Department puts into preventing the leader of its opposition from gaining another presidency has reached an insane level.
As Inquiries Compound, Justice System Pours Resources Into Scrutinizing Trump – NY Times – Jul 23, 2023
Jack Smith, the special counsel overseeing criminal investigations into former President Donald J. Trump, employs 40 to 60 career prosecutors, paralegals and support staff, augmented by a rotating cast of F.B.I. agents and technical specialists, according to people familiar with the situation.In his first four months on the job, starting in November, Mr. Smith’s investigation incurred expenses of $9.2 million. That included $1.9 million to pay the U.S. Marshals Service to protect Mr. Smith, his family and other investigators who have faced threats after the former president and his allies singled them out on social media.
At this rate, the special counsel is on track to spend about $25 million a year.
With that budget and the brainpower of such a large staff one could find fault with anyone and indict any person for whatever without much problems.
Seen from the outside U.S. internal politics now look like a bad reality show. This is not the self confident behavior of an elite of the sole superpower the U.S. still pretends to be.
There is a theory that the U.S. is undergoing some form of sovietization with a similar accumulation of defects and inefficiencies as occurred in the U.S.S.R. before it fell apart.
Uh oh. A Trump thread.
I was pissed. I watched the election get stolen that night. Three years of lies about Trump being an agent of Russia, ( if you ever watched press conferences during those three years, 90% of the questions were about Trump so called Russian collusion, not hyperbole)
Then there was his second impeachment, in which he, ambassador in chief, according to US constitution, asked the prosecutor in Ukraine to look into the Biden corruption, with Ukrainian born Lt Col Vindman somehow being allowed to determine what the ambassador in chief is allowed to talk about with foreign governments.
However, I have come to realize, the world is better off with Biden in the white house. Most people in the world only saw Trumps scandals and bombast, but missed how good he was diplomatically, especially in trade relations.
But Biden has already ruined most of that, and is doing a great job of degrading America, especially its internal cohesion. It simply can’t stop Russia now, where as Trump likely could have, via madman theory.
This country is so beyond what I ever imagined it could be. The censorship, I thought, in the 90s, would be limited to censorship of anti-war voices. Not particularly unexpected of any country, but still wrong, still hypocritical. But now, any issue can be censored, with great effectiveness, while the narrative is strengthened with billions of dollars in taxpayer money paid by those being censored.
And now, three silly indictments against Trump.
Oh, btw, in case anybody didn’t know, on Jan 6, trump put out a video saying people had been hurt, and he told his followers to “go home in peace” on a Twitter video.
His Twitter account was banned for life, for “inciting violence”

60 years ago the US establishment shot and killed their president on a public street, with 100s of witnesses and cameras recording the back of his head been blown off.
The media and government back then spun a narrative about a lone assassin which today is still the official narrative.
Around the world 60 years ago, most of the world’s government agencies knew it was an internal regime change and since that faithful day they have had to deal with the reality that the US is run by a ruthless mafia from top to bottom.
The only difference with today is that the establishment can’t blow Trump’s brains out,it would be way to obvious. Using their totally corrupt rules based order justice system is their only way of getting rid of Trump and they’ll keep going till he’s out of the way.
So basically, nothing surprising about how rotten the US is now, except maybe that the streets are covered in human shit and their is very little heavy industry, but the establishment are still the same as 1963.
