An Argument for Filling Ginsburg’s Seat Immediately

By Frank Salvato – September 19, 2020

In the aftermath of the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, tensions on both sides of the aisle are high. With a hotly contested General Election just weeks away, some in the pundit/activist spheres, conditioned by the acceptance of civil unrest in our urban areas, are calling for acts of violence should President Trump nominate his pick to fill the vacancy on the bench. The problem with this, besides the obvious, is that Mr. Trump has no choice but to deliver his nomination to the Senate for confirmation unless he is to be irresponsible to the nation’s needs and the Constitution’s mandates.

In an array of tweets, several self-important personalities issued violent threats against the country should the President and the Senate actually do their constitutional duties:

  • “If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f—–g thing down” and “Over our dead bodies. Literally,” tweeted Reza Aslan, an Iranian-born CNN host, born-again Islamist, and author.
  • “F–k no. Burn it all down,” tweeted Aaron Gouveia, author of Raising Boys To Be Good Men: A Parent’s Guide to Bringing Up Happy Sons in a World Filled with Toxic Masculinity and Father who defended his 5-year old son’s right to wear fingernail polish.
  • “We’re shutting this country down if Trump and McConnell try to ram through an appointment before the election,” tweeted Beau Willimon, a former aid to John Dean’s failed Senate bid and screenwriter who pilfered the idea for House of Cards from the British version.
  • “Burn Congress down before letting Trump try to appoint anyone to SCOTUS,” tweeted Emmett Macfarlane, a Canadian professor at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada.

If you are disturbed by the level of hatred, aggression, and complete disregard to the rule of law and the US Constitution then you haven’t been paying attention to what has been going on in the whole of America’s urban centers for the past six months.

But what both the foreign nationals and the US citizens noted above do not understand, for their constitutional illiteracy, is that there are two pressing reasons why Justice Ginsburg’s seat needs to be filled before the November election.

First and foremost, the country needs a full compliment on the US Supreme Court should there be any contest to the election results this November the likes of Bush v. Gore in 2000. A deadlocked 4-to-4 decision regarding the election of a president would send a fireball of violence into the streets of our nation, not to mention dismantle continuity of government. With our nation as divided as it is, we would almost assuredly devolve into a Second US Civil War.

But more important is that the President and the US Senate are mandated by the US Constitution to execute the workings of government. The moment a vacancy is created it is mandated that the process of filling that vacancy begin. The bad precedent that politicians have set in elongating this process is just that: bad precedent…

CDC Thomas Frieden Billions in Potential Scandals

Former CDC Director Thomas Frieden was recently arrested on August 24, 2018 for forcible touching, sexual abuse, and harassment. Is that what this has come down to? Arresting a man responsible for preventing a 19-year CDC veteran whistleblower from speaking up against vaccines, to exaggerating the swine flu and pushing vaccines, making mandatory and involuntary tracking of pregnant women’s ongoing diabetes results law, and assisting former President Barack Obama with his healthcare scheme, and yet, they nail him on “groping a woman”. Not that sexual abuse should be taken lightly, but it wreaks of cover-up. Meanwhile, billions of taxpayer dollars have been injected into these potential scandals.

Sexual scandals seem to be a theme lately for those who are involved in much higher levels of corruption. Thomas Frieden is not “one of the nations most respected medical experts”, as the MSM would have you believe. In fact, Frieden’s history with a long chain of corrupt politicians and “philanthropists” is much bigger than most people realize. Thomas Frieden is a peg on the board, years in the making, being moved to where they need him, while always staying within the circle, and he’s still at it. Reviewing the nearly 30-year timeline, connections, and events below, one can draw their own conclusions as to what they believe the “bigger picture” is.

CAN CONGRESSMAN SCHIFF BE PROSECUTED FOR SEDITION?

Bill Cushing, MD, JD, MBA

Can Adam Schiff, A California congressman and Chairman of the House intelligence Committee, be prosecuted for sedition?

In my opinion, the answer is yes.

Members of Congress are subject to the same laws as are all Citizens of the United States, with one exception. Article 1, Section 6 of the United States Constitution which states:

“They [Congress] shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.”

I have heard both Republican and Democrat Congressmen and women say on TV news shows, that Mr. Schiff has immunity from seditious statements because he is a Congressman. They are wrong. Continue reading CAN CONGRESSMAN SCHIFF BE PROSECUTED FOR SEDITION?

Fifth Pharmaceutical Company Charged In Ongoing Criminal Antitrust Investigation

Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Inc., USA was charged for conspiring to fix prices for generic drugs, the Department of Justice announced today.

The charge, filed today in the U.S. District Court in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, alleges that Glenmark conspired with other generic drug companies, including a company with its principal place of business in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, and Apotex Corp., to increase and maintain prices of pravastatin and other generic drugs beginning in or around May 2013 and continuing until at least in or around December 2015. Pravastatin is a prescription medication that reduces cholesterol, helping to prevent heart attacks and strokes. The charge alleges that the gain to the conspirators, and the loss to the victims, was at least $200 million.

“By cheating through fixing prices, generic drug companies artificially raised prices even though prescription drug costs were already sky high,” said Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim of the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division. “As today’s charge shows, the Antitrust Division will not hesitate to charge these companies, and litigate where necessary, particularly where their crimes resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars in overcharges for life-saving medications.”

“During these difficult times, it is more important than ever that our pharmaceutical companies conduct business with the well-being of the consumer in mind,” said Deputy Special Agent in Charge Steven Stuller, U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General. “When generic drug companies conspire to artificially increase prices, they do so to the detriment of many who depend on these medications to maintain good health. Along with the Department of Justice Antitrust Division and our partners at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the USPS Office of Inspector General will remain committed to investigating those who would engage in this type of harmful conduct.”…

You Can Be Against Police Brutality & Looting & Rioting At The Same Time

“All wars are bankers’ wars” – even those on the streets and those against your pocketbooks. If you pit your enemies against one another, they’ll kill each other off for you, while you are profiting off the death and destruction. This is an old Luciferian trick. Only logical, objective thinking can save us from their wily plans. Here’s Eric July, a logical thinker. Listen up, all who are hating on their fellow humans.

It is possible for people to condemn all violence.  Just because someone says they don’t support the looting and rioting, does not mean they support police brutality. Just because someone says that the police shouldn’t kill people with qualified immunity, doesn’t mean they support looting and rioting.

The mainstream media and those who still are stuck in the left/right paradigm want you to choose a side. Police brutality, or looting. It is possible to side with neither at the same time because they are both wrong.  What a surprise! They need you to choose to stay divided instead of standing up together against all violence and all shows of violence.

“The state and its aggression, and the people who loot innocent businesses are not justified in their actions. It doesn’t even mean their both equal, it just means they’re both wrong and it’s easy to speak about both. It is a false choice, a false dichotomy to suggest otherwise,” says Eric July. “Anybody that doesn’t have a brain the size of a coronavirus can actually hold two positions at the same time.”

Mommy & Daddy escort ‘Antifa Kid’ to turn himself in at Pittsburgh police dept

This is actually a pretty sad story. So young and in really deep trouble. This 20-year-old was identified as the one who kicked off the George Floyd riot in Pittsburgh – destroying a police vehicle. At least he was a resident of Pittsburgh and will not be subject to federal charges… maybe. It’s not easy being a people – and especially being a young person – in this time of propaganda, educational decline, religious banning and challenge to traditional values.

Brian Jordan Bartels, a 20-year-old man who Pittsburgh police said is suspected of inciting violence during a protest, was escorted by his parents as he turned himself in Monday.

Local law enforcement were investigating the destruction of a police SUV when they received an anonymous tip from a co-worker at Amazon who recognized Bartels at the scene of the crime, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. The vehicle was set on fire after being tagged with spray paint Saturday, although police officers eventually arrived on horseback to disperse the rioters.

According to a criminal complaint and eyewitness accounts, a woman tried to stop Bartels from damaging the SUV, but he gave her the finger and proceeded to break the car’s windows…

Trump’s social media executive order calls for removal of liability protections over ‘censoring’

Been unjustly banned or censored by Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites? Many have been. Many refugees from YouTube can now be found on BitChute. Here’s your chance to get rich…

Flanked by Attorney General Bill Barr, President Trump signed an executive order in the Oval Office on Thursday that interprets Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 (CDA) as not providing statutory liability protections for tech companies that engage in censorship and political conduct.

The president’s order, which also cuts federal funding for social media platforms that censor users’ political views, came just two days after Twitter took the unprecedented step of slapping a “misleading” warning label on two of Trump’s tweets concerning the fraud risks of nationwide mail-in balloting. The move immediately backfired: Experts disputed that Trump’s tweet was actually misleading, in part because mail-in balloting has been linked to ongoing fraud; Twitter’s fact-check itself contained false statements; and Twitter failed to apply the standard of review to other users.

At Thursday’s signing ceremony, Trump called the fact-check “egregious,” and held up a photo of Twitter executive Yoel Roth, who heads up the site’s fact-checking and rules-making operation. Fox News reported on Wednesday that Roth has mocked Trump supporters, called Trump’s team “ACTUAL NAZIS,” slammed “scary trannies” in New York City, and called GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a “bag of farts.” (In a statement, Twitter did not dispute Fox News’ reporting, but called it “unfortunate.”)

“My executive order calls for new regulations under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act to make it so that social media companies that engage in censoring any political conduct will not be able to keep their liability shield,” the president said…

Knowingly & Willfully | DOJ

The purpose of 18 U.S.C. § 1001 is to prohibit deceptive practices aimed at frustrating or impeding the legitimate functions of government departments or agencies. The statute is viewed as seeking to protect both the operation and the integrity of the government, and “covers all matters confided to the authority of an agency or department.” [From https://www.justice.gov/archives/jm/criminal-resource-manual-904-purpose-statute]

And…

The prohibition of 18 U.S.C. § 1001 requires that the false statement, concealment or cover up be “knowingly and willfully” done, which means that “The statement must have been made with an intent to deceive, a design to induce belief in the falsity or to mislead, but § 1001 does not require an intent to defraud — that is, the intent to deprive someone of something by means of deceit.” The government may prove that a false statement was made “knowingly and willfully” by offering evidence that defendants acted deliberately and with knowledge that the representation was false. The jury may conclude from a plan of elaborate lies and half-truths that defendants deliberately conveyed information they knew to be false to the government.

As used in the statute, the term “knowingly” requires only that the defendant acted with knowledge of the falsity…

The term “willfully” means no more than that the forbidden act was done deliberately and with knowledge, and does not require proof of evil intent. An act is done “willfully” if done voluntarily and intentionally and with the specific intent to do something the law forbids. There is no requirement that the government show evil intent on the part of a defendant in order to prove that the act was done “willfully.”
