(FreedomWire.org) – Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) removed her mask and proved she is a total fraud with her comment about the indictment of former President Donald Trump. Our legal system is based on the concept of innocent until proven guilty.

But not for Pelosi when it comes to Trump. Instead, Pelosi put the burden of proof on the defendants, not the state saying that “everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence” and that the justice system gives Trump that right.

She said: “The Grand Jury has acted upon the facts and the law. No one is above the law, and everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence. Hopefully, the former President will peacefully respect the system, which grants him that right.”

Pelosi made the statement on Twitter and was shut down by Twitter’s fact-checking system Community Notes. It reminded the former Speaker:

“Ms. Pelosi mistakenly says that Trump can prove his innocence at trial. Law in the US assumes the innocence of a defendant and the prosecution must prove guilt for a conviction.

“A presumption of innocence means that any defendant in a criminal trial is assumed to be innocent until they have been proven guilty. 

“As such, a prosecutor is required to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the person committed the crime if that person is to be convicted. To do so, proof must be shown for every single element of a crime. 

“The presumption of innocence is not guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution. However, through statutes and court decisions–such as the U.S. Supreme Court case of Taylor v. Kentucky–it has been recognized as one of the most basic requirements of a fair trial.”

(FreedomWire.org) – Former President Barack Obama had some speaking engagements in Australia, and while there, he tried to blame former President Donald Trump for the rise of China.

Obama complimented Chinese President Xi Jinping for taking “advantage” of the United States under Donald Trump, blaming his successor for a strain between the two nations.

The former US president kicked off his “Evening with President Obama” tour with 9,000 people packed into the Aware Centre Theatre in Sydney on Tuesday night.

He discussed the rise of China with host Julie Bishop, former deputy Liberal leader and foreign minister.

Obama praised Xi for his “forceful and confident” demeanor in navigating US relations after he left office, taking a swipe at Trump for strained relations.

“I think China feels as if it does not have to operate under the same constraints that it did while I was president,” Obama said.

“Externally, frankly, with my successor coming in, I think Xi (Jinping) saw an opportunity, ­because the US president didn’t seem to care that much about rules based in the international ­system.

“And so as a consequence, I think China’s attitude was, well, we can take advantage of what appears to be a vacuum internationally on a lot of these issues.”

Of course, Obama knows darn well the problem was China was abusing the ‘rules-based international system’ we let them in.

And were too greedy to kick them out. Trump changed the game by calling our leaders, not by blaming China but by blaming our past leaders.

Trump won because he told the truth to the American public, that helping China become our only real threat for cheap televisions was a foreign policy mistake that will go down in the history books.

“They took advantage of us for many, many years,” Trump said in 2019. 

“And I blame us, I don’t blame them. 

“I don’t blame President Xi. I blame all of our presidents, and not just President Obama. 

“You go back a long way. 

“You look at President Clinton, Bush — everybody. 

“They allowed this to happen, they created a monster. 

“We rebuilt China because they get so much money,” he said.

(FreedomWire.org) – Former President Trump and Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla) doubted being each other’s 2024 running mates. 

On separate occasions this week, the two Republicans addressed the possibility that they would run together for GOP nomination. However, both of them shot down the idea. 

DeSantis said he sees himself as “more of an executive guy,” adding that he gets things done rather than leaving Americans with broken promises. 

“I think I’m probably more of an executive guy,” the governor told Newsmax. “I think that you want to be able to do things. That’s part of the reason I got into this job because we have action. We can make things happen, and I think that’s probably what I am best suited for.”

He called the idea of having Trump as a running mate an “interesting speculation.” 

“The whole party, regardless of any personalities or individuals, you have got to be looking at 2024 and saying, if the Biden regime continues, and they’re able to pick up 10-15 seats in the House and a Senate seat or two, this country is going to be in really, really bad shape,” DeSantis continued. 

Meanwhile, Trump said it is “very unlikely” he would recruit the Florida governor as his sidekick in 2024. 

“No, I think that would be a very unlikely alliance,” Trump told Newsmax. “We have a lot of great people in the Republican Party. I’ve never thought of it, but, you know, some people every once in a while mention it, but that’s about it.”

Trump once again took credit for DeSantis’s fame, claiming he was the one who got the governor elected. 

“He was failing badly in the polls. He was out of politics. He was going to be out of politics, and I endorsed him,” Trump said. “And he went from a very small number to a very high number. I had rallied for Ron, and we got him in. Then a couple of years later, they said, ‘Would you run against the president for president?’ He said, ‘I have no comment.’ I said, ‘That’s not supposed to happen.'”

(FreedomWire.org) – Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador publicly humiliated President Joe Biden during a press conference by taking Trump’s side over a looming indictment. He said Biden can no longer lecture other countries about democracy if Trump is arrested.

AMLO stated, “Right now, former President Trump is declaring that they are going to arrest him. If that were the case, it would be so that his name doesn’t appear on the ballot.

“I say this because I too have suffered from the fabrication of a crime, when they didn’t want me to run, And this is completely anti-democratic. Why not allow the people to decide?”

He also called out Biden saying the United States cannot talk about human rights with Julian Assange detained, cartel violence with President Joe Biden bombing the Nord Stream pipeline, or democracy while arresting the leading presidential candidate Donald Trump.

According to The Hill, Obrador is finally taking the fentanyl issue seriously:

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador told U.S. lawmakers over the weekend that he would personally work with China to quell trans-Pacific shipments of fentanyl precursors that are processed into the deadly drug in Mexico, according to two of the American representatives.

The commitment was made in a long meeting in Mexico City over the weekend, where López Obrador discussed an array of issues with a bipartisan group of eight senators and four House members.

“One of the interesting parts is he agreed to meet with China on how they could prevent getting some of the raw materials, the precursors, from China,” Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-Texas) told The Hill.

“So that in itself acknowledges the fact that China is sending these things through, mainly through Manzanillo and some of the ports on that side of Mexico.”

A Mexican official said the meeting was respectful and constructive but did not confirm the specific claim.

(FreedomWire.org) – The expected Trump indictment hinges on his former lawyer Michael Cohen sending $130,000 to pornstar Stormy Daniels to prevent her from disclosing a purported 2006 affair with Trump, who has denied the allegation. Trump allegedly reimbursed Cohen with campaign funds, allegedly claiming them as “legal expenses.”

Nancy Pelosi is already hammering home the point that Donald Trump is ‘inciting’ his supporters ahead of his expected arrest next week.

“Whatever the Grand Jury decides, its consideration makes clear: no one is above the law, not even a former President of the United States,” Pelosi tweeted.

“The former president’s announcement this morning is reckless: doing so to keep himself in the news & to foment unrest among his supporters,” she added. “He cannot hide from his violations of the law, disrespect for our elections and incitements to violence. Rightfully, our legal system will decide how to hold him accountable.”

“Here we go again — an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump,” McCarthy said. “I’m directing relevant committees to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions.”

California Congressman Adam Schiff lashed out at McCarthy for his reaction to the radical D.A. preparing to arrest the former president.

“Here we go again: Kevin McCarthy once again playing the part of criminal defense counsel to shield Trump from accountability,” tweeted Schiff. “Heedless of the consequences to the country, he stirs the pot, and calls for an investigation of the investigators. It’s all part of Trump’s playbook.”

New York Democrat Hakeem Jeffries also set the framing that Donald Trump is a “right-wing extremist” who is going to “fan the flames of political violence.”

“We live in a democracy,” Jeffries said. “Right-wing extremists who fan the flames of political violence with inflammatory rhetoric are not fit to serve. American values over autocracy.”

Maxine Waters, Congresswoman from California, also set the framing that Donald Trump is calling for “domestic terrorists” to protest on his behalf next week.

“Most people have never seen or believed that we would have a president who has acted in the way that he has, who has disrespected the Constitution of the United States of America, who has lied, who has tried to organize domestic terrorists,” she claimed.

“And some believe that he did organize them as they attacked our Capitol on January 6,” she went on. “This president has conducted himself in a way that he does not deserve not to be arrested. He should be arrested. He should be indicted. And the charges that he’s being indicted on are minimal, as opposed to the charges that I believe he could have been indicted on. I don’t know what’s going to happen when he announces himself. It’s almost like he’s attempting to organize his domestic terrorists to show up and to resist him being arrested. You have to be careful with him.”

It is interesting that Waters is claiming that Donald Trump is organizing “domestic terrorists” to protest, when he has held over a hundred rallies with no incident of violence, the FBI has found no evidence tying Trump to a centrally organized plot to carry out a so-called “insurrection,” and the only people killed at the Capitol Riots on January 6 were Trump supporters.

Constitutional attorney Jonathan Turley is among critics of the Trump prosecution, but warns Trump against using inflammatory rhetoric.

Turley teeted, “Donald Trump is saying that he will be arrested on Tuesday and is calling for “protests” to “take our nation back.”

“I am highly critical of this case. However, given recent history, Trump needs to tap down any inflammatory rhetoric as we move forward…”

A call to protest is not a call to incite violence. However, many democrats have called for violence, but have never been held accountable for their actions.

(FreedomWire.org) – The Manhattan District Attorney, at least according to Donald Trump, is going to arrest the former president for a misdemeanor campaign finance violation, and right in time, a skeleton just crawled out of Hillary Clinton’s closet, that just might save Trump.

Hillary Clinton was busted breaking campaign finance laws and paid a fine, along with the DNC, to settle the issue, and she was never arrested.

From Politico March 2022:

The DNC and the Clinton campaign collectively agreed to pay $113,000 in fines, according to separate conciliation agreements the agency made with both parties. The DNC will pay $105,000 and the Clinton campaign $8,000. The FEC conciliation agreements were made public Wednesday.

The conciliation agreements found “probable cause to believe” that both the campaign and national party “misreport[ed] the purpose of certain disbursements” when they said certain payments to Perkins Coie were for legal fees.

The pair of agreements were signed for the Democratic groups on Feb. 16 by Graham Wilson, an attorney who was formerly at Perkins Coie and is now at the Elias Law Group.

In the agreements, the DNC and Clinton campaign contend that they believed they properly disclosed the spending. The agreements read that the party and campaign do “not concede, but will not further contest the Commission’s finding,” in order to settle the matters and not incur more legal costs.

According to CBS:

The Federal Election Commission has fined Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign $8,000 and the Democratic National Committee $105,000 for obscuring their funding of the “Steele dossier,” a 2016 opposition research report that sought to highlight alleged links between Donald Trump and Russia.

The bipartisan election commission also dismissed a complaint against Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier that caused a firestorm of allegations and investigations that shook the early months of Trump’s presidency.

The campaign mislabeled Steele’s work as “legal services” and “legal and compliance consulting” in campaign filings, the FEC concluded.

Steele and the campaign were notified of the FEC’s decision Tuesday. A spokesperson for the Democratic National Committee acknowledged that it agreed to pay the FEC’s fine, but said it had “settled aging and silly complaints from the 2016 election about ‘purpose descriptions’ in our FEC report.” 

The FEC’s ruling was in response to a complaint filed in 2018 by the conservative advocacy group the Coolidge Reagan Foundation. Paul Kamenar, a member of the Coolidge Reagan Foundation’s advisory board, called the DNC spokesperson’s description “appalling” in a phone call with CBS News.

“It’s outrageous that the DNC would minimize the serious violation that took place by calling campaign disclosure laws ‘silly’ violations,” said Kamenar, who added that he believes the FEC should have made a criminal referral to the Justice Department.

(FreedomWire.org) – Tesla CEO Elon Musk is throwing his support behind former President Trump if the 76-year-old is arrested by the Manhattan DA next week. 

In a tweet, Musk predicted that Trump would win in a landslide victory in the 2024 presidential election. 

Musk was replying to a tweet from conservative user @KaladinFree, who suggested Trump should be thrown out of the 2024 race. 

On Saturday, the former president took to his Truth Social account, predicting he will be indicted on Tuesday over claims he paid Stormy Daniels to keep quiet over their alleged affair. 

Calling the Left-wing DA’s office motive against Trump “corrupt and highly political,” he claimed the probe is a way to get him out of the presidential race, which he has currently been leading in the polls. 

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) also predicted this stunt would have Trump “win even bigger than he is already going to,” adding that any Republican who doesn’t support the president will be “exposed, remembered, scorned and punished” by the party. 

Additionally, lawyer Alan Dershowitz criticized Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s witch hunt against Trump, saying that if the former president were indicted, it would be a “targeted injustice.” 

“All decent people, whether politically opposed to Mr. Trump (as I am) or supportive of his candidacy, should be concerned about this weaponizing of the prosecutor’s office for the political purpose of preventing a potential candidate from running for office,” Dershowitz wrote in an article for New York The Sun. “Today, this insidious tactic is being used by a Democratic prosecutor against a Republican candidate. In 2016, efforts were made to use it against the Democratic candidate.”

(FreedomWire.org) – The mullahs and their cohorts are making no secret of the fact that they want Trump dead, along with Mike Pompeo and others involved in the 2020 killing of Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani. On Tuesday, Fox News reported that Iran has renewed its threats against Trump and the others, and even stated them in Islamic religious terms. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps aerospace force, declared: “God willing, we are looking to kill Trump [and] Pompeo… and military commanders who issued the order should be killed.”

Armies of all kinds throughout history have invoked God’s help upon their activities in wartime, and so it’s no surprise that a commander in an avowedly theocratic regime would do so. It’s nonetheless worth noting, however, as those who are convinced that they’re fighting an apocalyptic struggle of good vs. evil are unlikely to give up easily.

In line with that, as protests have rocked the Islamic Republic over the last few months, the Iranian regime has charged several protesters with “waging war against Allah,” a crime that is based on the Qur’an: “The only reward for those who make war upon Allah and his messenger and struggle to sow corruption on earth will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet cut off on opposite sides, or be expelled from the land. Such will be their degradation in this world, and in the hereafter, theirs will be an awful doom” (5:33). Stating the civil unrest in Iran in such stark and uncompromising terms is not just an attempt to terrorize the regime’s opponents into submission; it’s also a claim to hold the moral high ground: warring against the regime, you see, is the same thing as going to war against the Almighty Himself.

As he reiterated the Islamic regime’s threat against Trump, Hajizadeh emphasized that Iran did not plan to kill “poor soldiers,” but was gunning for the ringleaders. Iran analyst Behnam Ben Taleblu warned that the threats should be taken seriously: “Make no mistake, Iranian military officials mean what they say here. They still seek to wash blood away with blood. Threats by the long arm of the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism against American officials like Trump, Pompeo and McKenzie are not to be taken lightly.” Gen. Kenneth McKenzie is the former head U.S. Central Command. Ben Taleblu added: “This regime continues to put its money where its mouth is when it comes to global terrorism.”

While the threats are no doubt serious, it also must be noted that we have heard all this before. Back on New Year’s Day 2022, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, tweeted: “Martyr Soleimani is an eternal reality that will live on forever. His assassins – including Trump & the like – will go down in history’s garbage bin, but of course after receiving retribution in this world for the crime they committed.”

Even before that, Iran’s state-controlled Ahlul Bayt News Agency reported on January 23, 2021, that the Supreme Leader’s official website “posted a photo-montage of former US President Donald Trump playing golf under the shadow of a drone, vowing to avenge the assassination of Iran’s Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani.”

Khamenei also thundered in December 2020: “Revenge is certain.” He added: “The assassin of Soleimani and the one who ordered the murder should be punished. As an esteemed person said, Soleimani’s shoe is worth more than the assassin’s head and even decapitation of the assassin will not compensate for Soleimani’s shoe; but they did the wrong thing. They should be punished. The one who ordered and the assassin should know that they should be punished at any time possible.”

Trump was a favored Khamenei target even before Soleimani was killed. In February 2019, the Supreme Leader declared to a military gathering that “as long as America continues its wickedness, the Iranian nation will not abandon ‘Death to America.’ ‘Death to America’ means death to Trump, John Bolton, and Pompeo. It means death to American rulers.”

(FreedomWire.org) – Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) went after former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, after Haley took a swipe at former President Donald Trump when she announced she will be joining the presidential race in 2024.

As Haley kicked off her presidential campaign, she stressed the need for “generational change” in politics, she said she would make sure lawmakers over 75 years old would be subject to “mental competency tests.” It was a not-so-subtle dig at President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, who are 80 and 76 years old, respectively. Her remarks also came after 89-year-old Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the longest-serving member of Congress, announced she will retire at the end of her term.

Haley said, “America is not past our prime. It’s just that our politicians are past theirs.

“We’re ready — ready to move past the stale ideas and faded names of the past.

“And we are more than ready for a new generation to lead us into the future.”

Haley appeared on “Fox And Friends,” and they questioned her about Donald Trump, and how she thought he would do with cognitive test.

Greene went to Twitter to criticize Haley after announcement.

Greene tweeted, “Nikki Haley is just another George (or Jeb!) Bush. She is weak on the border, doesn’t want a wall, claimed ‘Legal Immigrants are more patriotic than most Americans these days,’ and she defended Obama when Pres. Trump criticized his terrible open-borders policy.

“And Nikki Haley refused to support a transgender bathroom bill to protect children. If we wanted a ‘Bush in heels,’ Republicans would vote for Liz Cheney,” Greene added.

Greene has been rumored to be one of Trumps front runners as Vice President. It is obvious that Greene will not be backing Haley in 2024 campaign .

(FreedomWire.org) – President Joe Biden sat down for an exclusive interview with the anchor of PBS News Hour, Judy Woodruff, on Wednesday. Topics covered included China, the economy, and his classified documents scandal. 

One shocking revelation to come out of the interview was the fact that at least one of the documents discovered at his Wilmington, Delaware home is from 1974 when he was serving in the Senate.

Normally when or if someone realizes that they have left a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility) with classified materials that they are not supposed to have, they self-report. 

The White House National Security Council coordinator for strategic communications, John Kirby, claims that is what the president did. 

50 years later?! 

Woodruff asked Biden why his criticism of former President Donald Trump for retaining classified documents when he spoke with Scott Pelley of CBS News doesn’t apply to him. 

She said, “Two other quick questions, Mr. President. Classified documents. It’s clear there’s a difference between the way you’ve handled this and former President Trump. You’ve cooperated with the archives, with the FBI.” 

No surprise that she lays out the difference between the two cases to make his case seem less severe than the former president’s. 

She continues, “But I want to ask you about quickly about what you said last September. You said just possessing classified documents, is you said ‘totally irresponsible.’ So what was totally irresponsible about the fact that you had some?”

Biden responded, hiding behind his handlers’ instructions, “What they’ve informed me not to speak to this issue to anyway, try to prejudice the investigation that’s going on.”

He continued in his defense, “One of the things that happened is that what was not done well is as they packed up my offices to move them, they didn’t do the kind of job that should have been done to go thoroughly through every single piece of literature that’s there.”

The president said that he’ll let the investigation play out and see what happens. 

To refresh your memory, in the CBS interview, Scott Pelley asked. 

“When you saw the photograph of the top secret documents laid out on the floor at Mar-a-Lago, what did you think to yourself looking at that image?”

“How that could possibly happen, how one, anyone could be that irresponsible?” Biden responded. 

“And I thought what data was in there that may compromise sources and methods. By that, I mean, names of people helped or ect. and it’s just totally irresponsible,” Biden added.

Attorney General, Merrick Garland appointed special counsel, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois John Lausch to review the Biden case. 

The Presidential Records Act requires that all documents from a president’s administration and staff must be turned over to the National Archives. 

Rep. James Comer, the Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, has some questions about the scandal. 

“Under the Biden Administration, the Department of Justice and National Archives have made compliance with the Presidential Records Act a top priority,” Comer said in a statement, referring to how they handled the case of the classified documents found at former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence. 

“We expect the same treatment for President Biden, who has apparently inappropriately maintained classified documents in an insecure setting for several years.” 

Will Joe Biden face impeachment? We shall see.
