    Trump doesn't only disparage, he lies and he incites, he threatens with deliberate intent to cause maximum harm and damage. He does this because he knows he can claim protection under the First Amendment. This highlights the danger to democracy that the interpretation of the First Amendment is, as it enables inciting and malicious lies to be spread through media, through those in congress who are politically ambitious at the expense of anything and anybody and gives licence to creating chaos in public. Yet in a Court it is unlawful to do this. That is the craziness – you allow it in public; but under the law, that behaviour is illegal???##!!

    Trump team already has 1,000-page manifesto outlining what to do if he wins White House: report
    Matthew Chapman
    September 20, 2023, 11:28 AM ET

    If former President Donald Trump retakes the White House in 2024, he will already have a policy team ready to go with extensive plans for remaking the federal government in his image.
    That's because the far-right Heritage Foundation has already recruited a number of former Trump administration staffers to lay out a blueprint for the next Republican administration, reported Bloomberg News.
    According to the report, Heritage has tapped several former senior Trump administration leaders, like former Office of Management and Budget chief Russell Vought, White House deputy chief of staff Rick Dearborn, former Office of Legislative Affairs director Eric Ueland, and former Trump adviser John McEntee lay out policy proposals for Trump taking office a second time.
    Their plans make up a 1,000-page playbook.
    This comes after earlier reporting that Heritage, a decades-old right-wing think tank that became close to the Trump administration under his presidency, is also building out a vast "right-wing LinkedIn" to recruit people to come on as staffers for such a future administration at every level, with the goal of getting 20,000 people ready to go — and that 50 conservative groups are collaborating on this umbrella project.
    Trump was often dissatisfied with his original Cabinet officials and national security officers, considering them disloyal and gradually purging those like John Kelly, Dan Coats, and even ultimately William Barr, who took contradictory positions or ever raised concerns key demands of his were illegal, considering them part of the "Deep State" who was out to get him. He and his supporters are determined that a future administration should be filled with people who will follow all his orders without question.
    It also comes as Heritage Foundation policymakers have laid out exactly what some of the priorities for a new Republican administration should look like, including dismantling agency independence and civil service protections to give the president absolute control over the law, and imposing a "Biblically based" agenda in federal policy.

    You, the MSM has made statements and kept this and other things that Trump has said in the peoples face for so long trying to discredit the man that he will never get a fair trial, like in Ga the Judges have recused themselves because of the political notoriety of the case. So where or who are they going to find someone to trie this case let alone twelve jurors that no knowledge of the case.

    It's not Election Interference, its Criminal Justice Interference period! The LAW is above any Presidential Candidate, get it right! American Democracy is on LIFE Support and the Mega's want to pull the plug! What does it take to get Justice! Lock him up pending Trial, Invoke the 14 Amendment and remove the Republicans from Congress doing Trumps bidding by a Government Shutdown! Indict them ALL! Where is the DOJ and President Biden? The alarm bells should be ringing! We are up against Baby hiltler Trump, he's been using the HILTLER PLAYBOOK!

    You're literally suggesting that someone who is being targeted politically by prosecutors can't address the fact (or opinion) that they're being targeted politically?
    Do you get how that leads to despot regimes?
    Heck, do you get how targeting people politically is a bad idea to do just before an election???
    You're legitimately making the case for why people should vote for the orange guy, and you don't even get it.

    If this was ANYONE else, they'd be sitting in a prison cell until their trial, UNABLE to talk about their case. But it's Trump, so he gets to jet set around the country rallying and complaining how his free speech is being denied and claiming it's "election interference".

    Everytime I here that he's being charged with election interference I am dumbfounded by the hypocrisy. This whole thing is election interference. That's why they keep these ridiculous charges coming and they always lose.

    No need for a gag order! Just lock him up in solitary confinement! Neither Donald J. Trump nor any others have a First Amendment right to continue to incite the ongoing insurrection.

    The gag order is totally ignorant. Every American out there knows no judge in America is going to back up the order if or lets say when Trump breaks the order. Remember judge Chutkan said the same thing if Trump made anymore threats!!!!!

    LIsten news fans. If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Ephesians 2:8 Jesus died on the cross for you, repent and believe.

    there they go again projecting what they did in 2016 and 2020 onto p.trump and are doing right now for the 2024 election. Interfere

    It's ridiculous for DT to be campaigning when he is already disqualified from holding public office as per the 14th Amendment Section 3. It's ridiculous for the judge to fail to protect witnesses, prosecutors, jurors, etc from all potential violent outcome from DT's fomenting. DT needs to be jailed pending trial.

    The lack of enforcement on the previous gag order is just embarrassing at this point….don't you think? ANYONE ELSE WOULD BE IN CUSTODY A LONG TIME AGO.

    Definitely imagine that that you said. Your favourite justification seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be mindful of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst other people consider issues that they plainly don’t recognize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the entire thing without having side-effects , other people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I think what you composed was actually very reasonable. But, think on this, suppose you added a little information? I am not suggesting your content is not good., but what if you added a headline that makes people desire more? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is kinda vanilla. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create post headlines to grab viewers interested. You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.

    I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours these days, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It’s lovely price sufficient for me.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
