Another JuicyLesson from 🇨🇦 Jerry 🇨🇦.
A few days ago (06-28-2022), I blog posted Part I of Fear and Loathing in Amerika in which I stated that I had just scratched the surface of the then moron-in-chief’s attempt to hijack the 2020 election. Now to delve more deeply into the matters I presented in the aforementioned JuicyLesson as well as putting forward additional information in context of the insurrection on January 6th, 2020, and which saw Trump’s supporters break into the Capitol, an action resulting in the deaths of five people including four police officers as well as one demonstrator, Ashli E. Babbitt, the latter shot while trying to enter a space occupied by some members of the United States’ Representatives and Senators who were sheltering in place, fearing for their lives. Babbitt was a USAF veteran as well as being a Libertarian supporter of the moron-in-chief and a follower of Q-Anon. She signed a social media post in the days leading up to the insurrection about her plans to be in DC on the 6th January with the Q-Anon slogan “WWG1WGA” – Where We Go One, We Go All. According to National Public Radio, “The Anti-Defamation League describes QAnon as a ‘wide-reaching conspiracy theory popular among a range of right-wing extremists’ and states the movement has ‘marked undertones of antisemitism and xenophobia.’”
In the first instalment, I mentioned the fact that some people, just prior to their testifying before the Select Committee investigating the Capitol riot, received either emails or phone calls basically informing them, among other things, that the moron-in-chief reads transcripts, that he is thinking of that person and knows that he/she is loyal and that he/she will do the right thing when they testify. In at least one case, the message said something to the effect that he/she was on the right team.
If this is true, it makes Trump and some of his enablers like Mark Meadows, John Eastman and Rudy Giuliani, liable to being charged with witness tampering and obstructing justice. It has come to light – and this is new information – that Cassidy Hutchinson, the onetime Meadows aide whose testimony before the Select Committee has turned out to be pivotal, has said that she was one of the recipients of the veiled email or phone threats just prior to two days ago when she gave her testimony to the Select Committee.
In typical moron-in-chief fashion, he has denied everything implicating him in illegal activities as well as referring to Hutchinson as a whack job, living in a fantasy world, calling her crazy and saying that he barely even knew her. Pretty hard to swallow considering that Hutchinson served as an aide to that total creep, Mark Meadows, who was Trump’s chief of staff and the two of them were around the Oval Office not just a few times. It’s far from the first time that the moron-in-chief has denied knowing a member of his administration or a lackey thereof. He’s such a liar and is believed by far too many foolish jerks among the Amerikan citizenry. What’s it gonna take to move the needle?
And now for the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) which some are referring to as the Trump Court. With the three conservative justices appointed by Trump, let’s briefly mention recent decisions that this branch of the Amerikan government has made.
1) The court has overturned Roe v Wade which means that it is now up to the individual states to decide whether abortion is legal or not. Regardless of the fact that the three Trump appointees – Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Coney-Barrett – all stated during their respective confirmation hearings that they considered Roe v Wade as “settled law” and as such, that they would be disinclined to alter it, these three liars all voted with the majority on the Court to do just that.
2) New Yorkers are now allowed to carry weapons to protect themselves said the Court. That’s bound to make NYC safer to live and work in, right? Nope.
3) The Court, in its infinite wisdom, has decided that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does not have the legal right to limit Amerikan green house gas emissions, stating that the legislative branch of government, the House of Representatives and the Senate, should have ultimate authority in this matter which, as we all should know by now, means that nothing will get done.
4) The Court has upheld the right of a football coach to thank God in a prayer after his team’s win. He does this at centre field, surrounded by his team which the Court views as a private prayer which people, according to this edition of the SCOTUS, have the right to do. What’s next? Bringing back prayers in schools which would serve to further blur the lines between the church and the state?
5) The Court did get one thing right when it decided that President Biden had the right to get rid of Trump’s rule that Mexicans and others be forced to apply for refugee status from outside the United States. This means that people applying for refugee status can do so while in the country rather than from another country, more likely from their country of residence.
Peace out, my friends.
