Tyranny is upon us: Law and juries are weaponized.

Keep in mind that these are 34 made-up felonies based on how an expense was recorded by accountants and attorneys. Trump did not record the expense.The expense was recorded according to accounting standards.

Keep in mind that a single accounting reporting charge, a misdemeanor, was magically turned into 34 federal felonies of election violations, if memory serves, the argument being that Trump won the election by misreporting the expense. There are so many civil and criminal show trials going on against Trump that it is hard to keep track of all the absurdities. Keep in mind that it is a case without complainants, without harmed parties.

It is a case brought by a prosecutor who can show no party harmed.

What is frightening is that legally this is a case for which there are no legal grounds for bringing it. Yet, the bar associations, the law schools, the media said nothing. Getting Trump was so important that law was sacrificed for the purpose. Trump's demonization made a fair trial impossible, and few jurors can resist using their power against a rich person.

The weaponization of law in order to interfere with an election–in other words the prosecutor is guilty of interfering in an election–the charge brought against Trump–means the future of America is tyranny.

An appeal will be made, but a state where justice is as corrupt as New York is incapable of producing a decision based on law.

If there is any fight left in Americans, and I am unsure, a prison sentence from the totally corrupt judge should launch a civil war. Many would say it is about time or past time.

If not, the people have submitted to tyranny.

The North submitted to Lincoln's tyranny. The South did not. Little is left of the South. It is unclear what stands against the tyranny of Washington.
