 Trump Fails On Presidential Immunity Claim

Texas should build a couple of thorium reactors and the use the energy to run desalinization plants along the coasts and the pumps to pump water into the interior of the state. Or they could end their growth at any cost ways

Yeah the other problem Texas has is ERCOT and their green obsession, which is fucking stupid and directly contrary to their "free market" claims. Their "deregulation" has put a horse-dick up consumer's assholes when it comes to power costs, and water is a serious problem as well.

Free markets my ass.

It's never going to become an issue because the parents of the kids who get killed by these mongrels weep about the loss of tacos if we close the border and kick them out. The narrative trumps all else, the diversity must flow.

Why we let these genetic dead-ends have influence in our nation, I'll never know.

After reading this ticker, I got to thinking about the presidential race. We all know that Biden most likely won't make it to election day - whatever he has going on seems to be progressing at a rather brisk pace.

There's been a lot of speculation in the alt-media about who the replacement will be, Newsome and Big Mike being the main focus.

But a better question to contemplate is what will the GOP do when/if Trump - who appears will be the nominee - if Trump is no longer able to run?

Is this the uni-party's plan? While everyone is focused on Biden, someone like Haley is slid into the GOP slot and the presidency.

Just some musings. But it wouldn't surprise me if this hasn't been gamed out.

It's going to be a very entertaining election season; entertaining in a very macabre way for our country.

Dropping out of the primary contest doesn't prevent her from being named if Trump is bounced after the convention.

That's one of our interesting twists in how the process works in that they're called Presidential PREFERENCE primaries. You're not only not due a fair contest they are just that and post-convention the party "seniors" (such as they are) can do damn near anything they want, provided they can get the electoral slate in each state to go along with it, because you are voting for ELECTORS, not the President him or herself.

I wish. Unfortunately the State has gone the other way and stopped the new reactor build at the South Texas Nuclear Project in part because idiotic cities like Austin divested their stake to virtue signal. Nuclear is all but dead here and I don't see the viral growth mindset stopping anytime soon, too many well connected people are making too much money on the front end of that growth.

All true. Even in my 12 years here I have seen prices spike and reliability go into the shitter due to green insanity. Every hot or cold day I get texts now saying the grid is stressed. All big Texas cities are blue as hell and love this stupid crap. Incidentally, the only part of the state I would even consider moving to is the eastern slice that is not under ERCOT control, is more sparsely populated, has lower RE costs, and actually gets reasonable amounts of rain. Not to say it's perfect, it has the same problems that plague all our country's rural depopulated areas.

This is more proof of a failing country. This upends 235 years of tradition and it will change the Presidency forever if its allowed to stand. Every President henceforth will be looking over their shoulders wondering if anything they do will be liable to criminal prosecution once they leave office. This will hinder their actions while in office and it changes the very nature of our government and the governing process. I don't care if ''the other side'' can do the same thing when they get power.


The impeachment process was designed and included in our Constitution to address these situations and any crimes that may have occurred. Impeachment applies to Federal officials while in office.


In a lawless, collapsing society, anything can be interpreted out of existence. That includes laws, legal traditions AND Constitutional Rights. And different interpretations can occur for the same set of facts depending upon which political parties that the interpreter and other person belong to.


Allowing this ruling to stand will result in a lawfare arms race to see which side can outdo the other.

I think Abbot and DeSantis made a very deliberate move in sending the illegal invaders to sanctuary cities like NYC, Chicago, etc. The sanctuary idiots didn't mind the invasion TX, AZ, FL, and CA were dealing with, because it really didn't affect them. CA is a lost cause because of the years of illegal invaders. Look at all these blue city mayors and governors having to deal with their own stupid policies. They are screaming at Abbott, but they won't scream or denounce their beloved Dem president who amped up this invasion.

The worst part is these invaders are now all over the place. The good part is they are wreaking havoc on those idiot politicians and progressive voters that wanted them here.

If this wasn't Clownworld, I would welcome a reduction in Presidential immunity.

While a President needs to act fast between grey lines to uphold the constitution and protect the country, we certainly see many Presidents abusing office (including Lincoln who should NOT have started the Civil war as the South was allowed to leave the union according to the Constitution.)

However, as it is the current year, we see this law just to prosecute the Orange Man Bad and leave all other uniparty Presidents in their mansions. Obama, the Drone King, could be investigated for how he financed his pet marxists organisations via tax free bailout donations after the GFC (because he was too lazy to get it funded through legislature when he had the house and senate).

Other commenters have mentioned that a law can only be applied if a Prosecutor will prosecute. You also need a lawman to physically arrest. Those things are severaly lacking, especially with Basketball Americans and Soros funded DAs, as an example.

Like him or not, Trump has had every single dirty trick and blocker thrown at him, both in office and as a candidate... and that's just from his own party! Rules for radicals - hold the other party accountable to their own standards. If Trump truly is being thrown in jail, it will be just another tool for the swamp to use on any presidents that step out of line - that's a net negative for the vox populi

@Cmoledor: "...Abbot is simply helping to entrench the invaders deeper into the interior...."

I see your point but it is a VERY small percentage of criminal migrants. And I love to hear the Communist Dumbocraps squeal about the consequences of being a sanctuary city. F them, they asked for it, and they "...deserve to get it good and hard" (H.L. Mencken).

I suspect the Court doesn't want to be viewed as deciding a US election, nor as partisan hacks.

I expect this decision to be 9-0 against Trump, perhaps with the scope somewhat narrowed. And the ballot access decision to be 9-0 for Trump. That takes the wind out of the sails of those who claim the Court is partisan, and more importantly, these are likely the correct decisions constitutionally.

The more interesting case to me is the J6 case related to charging defendants for crimes (obstruction of official proceeding) that were written to be used for financial crimes.

I don't think that one will be unanimous. I think Gorsuch will vote to overturn, and there is good chance some or all of the conservative judges will join him, as conservatives judges already ruled against it at the district and appeals (as a dissenting opinion) level.

Going on record that SC will rule 5-4 or better in favor of Trump.

Congress is always available to effect dismissal of the president if his behavior rises to the level. Given that, there is plenty of means by which to address malfeasance on the part of any given president.

Ergo, the common jury is redundant, and in the case of HIGHLY politicized scenarios, 12 members of ONE locale is insufficient to attend to the needs of a nation of citizens and states.

In theory yes, but it's damned near impossible because you need Bureau of Land Management to cooperate. I think it's something called a land patent, although I don't know what that really means, but apparently you need deep, deep pockets and heavy-hitter lawyers to pull it off. And you can only get it outside of incorporated city limits ... and a lesser barrier is that the county has to agree, too. You think they wanna give up your property taxes?

If you do somehow pull it off, it apparently makes it impossible to get any insurance coverage. But if you can afford to make it happen, you can probably self-insure.

I believe remote areas of Alaska is the only place left with the possibility of "normal" private property ownership without property taxes.

Range -- this kind of ownership does not allow a mortgage or subdivision either. Thus, it is not good for much. In the absence of a LWT or Trust the land cannot ultimately default to the State if no apparent heirs. Some relation must eventually be found or else it merely sits vacant.

I figure if you can afford to set it up at all, mortgages aren't of interest. But you're right, I remember that as well. I went down that rabbit hole years and years ago when I thought I was seriously considering just disconnecting and disappearing into the West TX desert. There are days where this still has very strong appeal.
