(CNN)   In their furious rush to attack the FBI for the Mar-a-Lago search, Trump supporters are ignoring one key fact. Wait, just one? Wouldn't that mark a significant improvement in their normal behavior?   (cnn.com) divider line

It's going to turn out to be espionage and the Trumpers will be fine with turning the country  over to Putin for the stigginit.

a fierce backlash against the bureau, the Justice Department and the Biden White House, which has said it had no advance warning of the FBI activity.

"Hello, Private Citizen Trump? This is the FBI. Yeah we're going to be searching your resort that you illegally owned while President. We'll be heading down there in about 12 hours so you know, if you want to head down there, spruce the place up, take any personal belongings, you know keepsakes that you want to make sure don't get damaged, whatever. We have the number of the nearest U-Haul just you know in case. Just FYI".

Enough with the articles about how Trumpers are frothing at the mouth. They don't understand rule of law, they don't understand how the justice system works, they don't understand what it takes to get a warrant--never mind one for a former President--and they don't understand judicial procedures. They're too stupid and too far into the cult to see that everything they believe is 100% the opposite of how things really are.

All they understand is might makes right and outrage.

We know this is how they'd react. A dozen articles about it in various guises isn't making things any clearer for anyone. They're stupid and they're angry, that makes them potentially dangerous. Got it.

No, the statement is that neither Biden nor the DOJ knew about the FBI raid until it was happening.

Holding a former chief executive accountable under the law seems about as far away as you can get from a "third world country" or dictatorship.  Conservatives are very, very stupid.

MAGA-lovers are not a fact-embracing crowd, by and large. Alternative facts, yes - the "alt-right" loves alternative facts.

They're viewing this the way the dictator of a new regime would "prosecute", usually at the receiving end of a firing squad, the dictator of the previous regime.

They're idiots.

Trump's fury on his Truth Social platform, warnings of retaliation by congressional Republicans and threats of violence in pro-Trump posts on social media were enabled by a vacuum of concrete details about the FBI operation and reached a national audience by a steady drum of coverage from traditional media that allowed him to get his message off a platform that sixteen people are actually using and prompted scattered howls of fealty from his Congressional pack.

CNN not up to the reporting, so I'm trying to help out where I can.

The furor of the last few days also showed that any remaining hopes that Biden might have of making good on his inaugural promise to bring the country together probably fizzled as soon as FBI agents went through the gates at Mar-a-Lago."


Ummm...no. That possibility will never exist as long as Trump and his cult live....and was gone long before this raid. It has NOTHING to do with Biden...that is bullshiat.

we have millions of "americans" that are evil and we will have no hope of peace until they drop dead

They're always going to claim persecution when you try to hold them accountable for their actions.

Doesn't mean you shouldn't do it. If you fail to enforce the law for fear of reprisals then they've already succeeded in subverting the rule of law.

Idiots. Even on the slim chance he gets a felony conviction out of his laundry list of likely felonies. He's looking at house arrest at a farkin golf course he owns. Where he can continue being the human disaster he is. So calm down right wing nuts, he'll still be your leader in exile that you can j/o to and buy lots of free Donnie merch for the next ten years of his life.
 
2022-08-10 10:23:05 AM  
They simply don't care about the facts.

If Trump is charged and walks again it doesn't prove anything except the wealthy and powerful are above the law.

Their real fear is he doesn't walk. And that means the wealthy and powerful aren't above the law.

And that means everything to them. Who else will grant them the freedoms they claim?

Trump has a copy of the warrant and a list of everything that was taken. He could release it right now to show just how innocent he is. Wonder why he won't that, nor will any of the right-wing even bring up the possibility, just scream persecution?

/I don't actually wonder that
 
2022-08-10 10:23:44 AM  
All Twumpy did was give tell them it was ok to be openly racist and violent. They were always racist and violent, they just were ashamed or worried they would get beat down.

You never, ever, try to start a fight. You never, ever, try to goad someone into a fight. However the moment someone becomes violent they are a direct threat and must be dealt with permanently. Now that might just mean putting them in the dirt, or it might mean permanently putting them six feet under the dirt. When they decide to get violent, they'll find out how quickly they get beat down.

With the way momentum seems to finally be swinging to the side of integrity and truth, I will not be surprised if these allegations blow up in the GOP's face very publicly. There is no way Merrick Garland moved forward with this without making a solid case, with every "i" dotted and every "t" crossed. The justification was probably intentionally written in as simplistic English as possible to where even the uneducated can understand instead of legalese. Garland has probably had a group formed just to scrutinize every aspect on a level considered "nit picking". Garland knew the scrutiny and made it so when the facts are investigated and released, there will be no gray area or doubt Trump messed up.

We know exactly where they "stand" and I use that word because "squat" isn't quite apropos in this context.

Our resident set of neutered bear testicles got right up to the point of being asked "if Trump committed a crime, shouldn't he be prosecuted?" to which he prevaricated, more or less "unless [all] he did was something that a Democrat gets away with and is never punished."

Which, as we know, is out-and-out bullshiat. No Democratic president ever took 30 boxes of classified documents to their private residence and kept them for 18 months after the end of their term, so the comparison is meaningless.

Trump and his minions seem to want him to be treated as both a god-emperor above all laws and reproach, and yet a private citizen accorded all protections and privileges of the law. And it just don't work that way.
 
2022-08-10 10:30:03 AM  
Perhaps conservatives can imagine that instead of Trump bring a rich white man previously implicated in crimes, they can imagine he's an unarmed black man.

Law enforcement can do no wrong when it comes to interactions with black men.

The White House is the one saying it had no advance warninv in that sentence (yeah  I know Trump and a bunch of maggots also complained about that).
 
2022-08-10 10:40:19 AM  
My favorite comment out of this so far have been people saying, "if they can do this to a former president they can do it to anyone!!!111!"  My response is, "well, yeah, they can."  if you have access to classified information and take it home with you after you leave your job where you needed said access (or any other time really), they can come raid your house to retrieve it.  That's how it works and they are very clear that's how it works when you get a security clearance.  The message isn't "they can do this to anyone" it's "no one is above the law" which I think is a rather positive outcome. Now, to be fair, that isn't completely true.  If it wasn't a former president or other "special person" the person who took the documents would have been led out in handcuffs too.

Did they backtrace the IP of the original post?  I'll bet the coward was behind 7 proxies.  The NSA (aka the Internet Police) can only tunnel through 6 before their packet capture conduit collapses.

"Shore up that tunnel with extra bits!  We're almost through Proxy 7!"
