On Thursday, 30 March 2023, a New York City Grand Jury indicted a ham sandwich. It was a difficult slog through muck and mire but, in the end, they did their duty and the ham sandwich now stands accused of —- well nobody really knows what that is, even the Grand Jury.
The phrase “indicting a ham sandwich” comes not unexpectedly, from a New York Chief judge, Sol Wachtler, who was famously quoted by Tom Wolfe in his novel “The Bonfire of the Vanities”. (The quote is that “a grand jury would ‘indict a ham sandwich,’ if that’s what you wanted.”) And, by God, a New York City Grand Jury just did exactly that.
The phrase “Bonfire of the Vanities” relates to the burning of objects condemned by religious authorities as sinful. Specifically referenced is 7 February 1497 when the faithful supporting Friar Girolamo Savonarola gathered and burned thousands of books, art and other sinful objects in the public square of Florence Italy. (Francesco Guicciadini’s in his “History of Florence” notes that the focus of the destruction was objects of temptation and included mirrors, cosmetics, fine dresses, playing cards, and musical instrument as well as immoral written or painted works of all kinds.)
The “ham sandwich” in this article is Donald Trump. Democrats, so fearful of his election, have pulled out all the stops. If the Soros DA in NYC didn’t get him then Atlanta was next and who know what Soros Democrat run city would follow. The desperation to get rid of a formidable Trump candidacy is palatable and the weaponization of American government at all levels is never more obvious. (The famous Dreyfus case over a century ago involved a similar witch hunt and legal abuse. The phrase “J’Accuse” was written by Emile Zola as a condemnation of the French government’s abuse of power and the resulting injustice. J’Accuse applies here.)
I wonder if Soros DA Bragg has thought about the consequences beyond the indictment? For example, if he ever leaves New York City and happens to travel through a red county, town or state, he could arrested and treated like a ham sandwich — felony running of a stop sign and scaring a homeless cat would work. (Notably, in red areas, felony running of a stop sign is not a fine but confinement in jail until a judge is available – could be months in some instances. The current situation with the J6 prisoners whose constitutional rights have been rendered meaningless applies.)
But let’s look further. Can any Republican run for President if he has a business or even personal history in a Soros Democrat run city? Such a Republican candidate will immediately be subject to trumped up charges and indicted using ham sandwich criteria. The indicted get the opportunity to prove their innocence at a jury trial. The fact that the indicted is constitutionally innocent until proven guilty no longer applies – see Nancy Pelosi saying that “Trump will have the right to prove his innocence”. (This, of course, is exactly the situation that Dreyfus found himself in. He ended up convicted, sentenced to life in prison, and served five years at Devil’s Island under the most horrific of prison conditions. He was released when the injustice became obvious.)
Currently, the constitutionally designed justice system no longer exists. It has been replaced by the ham sandwich.
Well, Trump did attempt a coup. Republicans have not been able to replace their real leader, Limbaugh, and are wandering in the wilderness.
I doubt they will let anyone who did what Trump did back in the White House. As far as I am concerned he should be hung or face a firing squad.
The Republican Party “pussy” brigade has been to much of a coward society to dump the Trump and find a human being to lead their party. Besides. Trump is not a Republican anyhow.
Hell, the Republicans are in bed with the Democrats.
soros, soros, soros…………..how sad that you might actually believe that
CALL FOR ACTION:
President Trump represents an existential threat to the global Authoritarian Machine that, until 2016, believed our country’s downfall was a fait accompli.
Any leader who doesn’t speak out against the clear injustice of his political persecution is complicit.
The first action we can all take is a full and complete polling of ALL Republican and conservative leaders requiring them to condemn, not just disapprove, the prosecution of President Trump. Any who in any manner waffles, such as making the statement “no one is above the law,” must be removed from office. I mean on all levels. First they should be asked to resign. If they refuse, then whatever is the shortest means to their renewal must be taken. There can be no delay. There can be no waffling. Standing firmly for Trump must be the litmus test for all Republicans and conservatives who hold or intend to hold any office whatsoever whether federal, state or local. This support should also be extended to any organization that you support, charitable, community, or religious. All candidates standing for President on the Republican ticket must announce they will not oppose his election and dropout of the race in a show of solidarity. This MUST be the test for all. Those who support this prosecution ARE COMPLICIT and have NO place in our Republic.
Poor big fella, spent his adult life lying, cheating and NOT paying the people he owes and then he actually pays one person and look what happens.
This isn’t about Trump but you are so blinded bybTrump hatred that you can see the obvious destruction being inflicted on America.
I voted for him dipshit. Keep ASSuming, at least you’re consistent. I may vote for him again depending on who he is running against, and of course, him not being in jail.
I do however hate (more find laughable than hate but whatever) the hypocrisy of today’s R party and faux “christians” far and wide.
Just for the record Dems don’t do much for me either but since this is faux conservative/vacant, blustery R central, I speak to my audience.
You have yet to say anything that is Republican or conservative. The hypocrisy is yours.
Meh, its humorous (to me) to poke the toothless bear (you) and listen to it growl.
Do I hate Trump? Heck no. At least he is who he presents himself to be. At least he’s banging relatively consenting women and not railing against drag queens while harboring a secret proclivity towards homosexuality and/or minors. Hell, that alone seems to be a rare commodity in today’s R party.
Apparently, there is a GOP Congressman offering free ham sandwiches to memorialize the politicized indictment.
How about some GOP DAs Trump up some charges against some democrat politicians. Should be easy to do as their corruption is easily seen. Anybody who helped sell the FTX fraud should be a target and anybody who helped Hunter and the Biden’s con the public.
On the Trump “indictment”: Here’s what will happen, the plan all along. He will be arrested and taken into custody because the DA and the judge will label him a “flight risk”. He will be forced to surrender his passport. He will be booked into jail and remain there without bail until his trial sometime next year. Probably next summer to keep him from campaigning. He will then be tried by an Obama judge and convicted by a hand-picked jury who have been instructed to return guilty verdicts on all counts. This has been so obvious from the beginning that anyone who does not realize it is either stupid or part of the cabal.
Well, this would put everyone on a civil war footing.
Which is EXACTLY what the communists want in order to declare a national emergency, suspend the constitution and declare all firearms illegal. DON’T do ANYTHING!!! Let this play out. Two of the top legal minds in the country, Dershowitz and Turley, are saying that the indictments will be dismissed. We shall see. Stay home.
