Truth and Justice the new American Way

The Mueller investigation cost taxpayers around $30 million.  More that half of it going into the pockets of his 17 Lawyers.  It took Mueller’s school of sharks and legion of FBI investigators 2 years to tell everyone with properly functioning brain cells what we and Mueller already knew.  There was no Russian collusion, zero, zip, nada.   We also learned the Mueller crew must’ve flunked the basic precepts of the American legal system.  Especially the small part about the presumption of innocence.  Part two of the collusion fable, built on a fictional storyline concocted by a washed-up British spy, declared we can’t prove you were guilty of obstruction but we also cannot prove you are innocent of it.  And just for the record, when did you stop beating your wife?

Supreme Court in Coffin v. United States, 156 U.S. 432 (1895). “The principle that there is a presumption of innocence in favor of the accused is the undoubted law, axiomatic and elementary, and its enforcement lies at the foundation of the administration of our criminal law.”

I had a job once.  That sounded so nice, I should’ve just left it there.  Legal decisions I made were evidence driven.  In one instance, I needed evidence placing someone in a certain place during a specified time frame.  No record of such evidence existed nor could the claimant provide any, not even a hint, so the unfavorable decision the evidence required I make reflected that.  Sometime down the twisting trail through the familiar Washington menagerie, a highly educated lawyer/judge reversed my decision because, the judge declared, I could not prove the person wasn’t at the certain place during the specified time frame.  I do not know if this lawyer grew up to be on the Mueller team, but it’s certainly a possibility worth considering.

Legal decisions require a burden of proof.  In Mueller’s case, the burden of proving (not disproving) the President obstructed justice belonged to him.  Anything following the we can’t prove it statement is just political bull.  Nothing but fodder for the Democrat house and the progressive media.  In my case, a person made a claim against the government.  The government is required to search all available records to assist the claimant.  When the government’s search turns up no supporting evidence, the burden of proof falls to the claimant.  Just like Mueller, the judge required proof of a negative.  An impossibility.  This is how political activists, ideologues, and people trying to cover their own behinds upend a free republic’s most basic law principles.

If you believe in the rule of law and our free republic, I don’t know how you can support what’s happening or happened in the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the United States Congress.  Voluminous evidence documents a political coup beginning with the Clinton campaign financing the fake dossier and spying on the Trump campaign.  It continues right up to this very moment, relying now on innuendo contained in Mueller’s dossier.

Congress is not satisfied with Mueller and much less with Attorney General Barr.  They now want to go after the Trump industry, the Trump family and every aspect of the lives of the First Family.  A Trump witch hunt.  If you support this, do not claim to me that you’re American.  If your blind hatred of a man, simply because he defeated an unindicted felon, leads you to unstable decisions like attacking someone because they wear a ball cap you don’t like, you have a mental health issue.  You need help.  You need to address that along with ensuring your brain is in gear before your mouth goes into operation.  If you work in the media, please consider truth and objectivity and address facts not tempered by your thoughts or feelings.  You are destroying one of our most cherished freedoms – a free press.  Because you are not free, you are chained to a political party and ideology both of which blind you to the truth.  If you keep demanding that we save our democracy, you are showing your ignorance.  We are a Constitutional Republic, governed by law not mob rule.

Maybe I am just growing tired.  Tired of stupidity.  Tired of being labeled by those who project their biases onto others and me.  Tired of media blackouts on conduct of real criminals, worldwide attacks on Christians, and the invasion at our Southern Border.  The media was correctly named an enemy of the state.  The enemy of freedom.  Suicidal.
