“Criminal Intent”…
Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/15/2018 7:55:23 AM

If you pause for a few minutes and look at every recent headline, and the story therein that delivers frustration;… I mean really elevate and look at the bigger issue inside each of the examples… there’s a connective thread surrounding a shift in law-and-order to focus on “criminal intent.” “Intent”, not consequence, is now the larger shield being applied toward excusing the action of people within institutions of government and society.(Snip)Hillary Clinton was not guilty, because James Comey said they couldn’t prove intent. Recent DOJ releases highlighting: “declined to prosecute” all surround intent. Illegal alien entry, and accountability

Comments:
The magic words that are letting serious government criminals off the hook. From Hillary (so far) to James Wolfe (a major leaker, whose possible serious leaking charges were watered down to lying to FBI or somesuch). And then there are the irregularities in the voting in Florida.
All about intent.

Intent is built into the law: "Whoever knowingly..." Intent is important in deciding the level of homicide and many drug offenses.

Intent is not built in to speeding, And it is very deliberately not built in to the protection of secrets act that Hillary violated so deliberately.

Unfortunately, we don´t have a law that says it is illegal for an alien to be in the United States without a valid visa.

If you continuously disregard imposing consequences on criminals or those who have committed criminal acts, there is no justice. If there is no justice, you have toothless law. Without law, you get anarchy, and we are perilously close to that now.

Someone, somewhere MUST begin meting out actual consequences for breaking the law, regardless of "intent." You can not intend to break the law yet break it anyway; does lack of intent mitigate consequences?

I want to see a case of murder where the defendant says,”But your Honor, and ladies and gentleman of the jury, I didn’t mean to kill him. I just wanted to persuade him to do things my way! It was a mistake that the gun went off!” If the guy is a Democrat, he gets off.

Hitlery´s INTENT was to skate.

Comey thought he gave her an out on the emails which had been subpoenaed.

Judicial Watch is endeavoring to bring this to a conclusion as the State department continues to seek to stonewall discovery.

HER intent has always been to avoid prosecution and indictment, and at that she has been successful up to now.

If there is any justice left in this country, HRC will one day be held accountable for her crimes. The list of democrats who are in the same boat is very long and most of us know their names. Americans are very disturbed when we see these criminals skate because they have an enabling and supportive media pleading their cases daily. It is very disheartening to witness the rule of law and equality under the law being destroyed because the rich and powerful are, well, rich and powerful.

The ´intent´ here is to keep the investigations going as long as possible to make it as hard as possible for Trump to do his work, for the American people. Does Rosenstein know what evidence Mueller has about Trump/Russia collusion, specifically? Or is that a Mueller secret.

Intent, the way it is used now, is like the dog eating the homework. Bubba’s “mistakes were made”. And the rest with which we are too familiar.

Let a Republican misstep, and criminal intent is immediately brought in - they had to know they were breaking the law and did so deliberately.

World’s smartest woman Hillary, a lawyer, knew darned well she was breaking the law. So did James Comey, the country’s then #1 law enforcement officer.

Democrats´ ´Sit-In´ Is a Stain

The success of the State of the Union address is usually measured in standing ovations, but President Trump’s 2019 speech is best measured by how often Democrats stayed planted in their seats. The president challenged Americans to “choose greatness,” but the dour Democrats continued to choose resistance, forgetting that cameras documented every instance when they felt it inappropriate to celebrate the successes not just of this president but of the American people he serves. The effect was perhaps exaggerated by the decision of the Democratic women of Congress to dress in white

Democrats turn on Ilhan Omar after

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., was condemned Sunday by fellow Democrats after she accused a pro-Israel lobbying group of paying lawmakers in exchange for influence. The latest controversy engulfing the freshman lawmaker centered on tweets she sent reacting to journalist Glenn Greenwald criticizing House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., for threatening punishment against Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., over their criticisms of Israel. "It´s all about the Benjamins, baby," Omar said in one tweet, quoting a lyric from the 1997 song by rap artist Puff Daddy.

Lauren Sanchez´s brother Michael was the person who leaked the sexts between her and Jeff Bezos to the National Enquirer, it has been revealed. Multiple sources at AMI, the magazine´s parent company, confirmed to Daily Beast that Michael was the one who helped blow the lid off the couple´s affair. AMI previously refused to reveal who leaked the texts, but on Sunday Elkan Abramowitz, a lawyer for the company, hinted that Sanchez was behind it. ´The story was given to the National Enquirer by a reliable source that had given information to the National Enquirer for seven years prior

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., is expected to launch her 2020 presidential campaign on Sunday, but is facing an early crisis over a wave of accusations that she has mistreated staff -- with her conduct reportedly getting so bad that then-Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid told her to change her behavior. (Snip)But that announcement was overshadowed this week when HuffPost reported this week that Klobuchar has such a bad reputation over her treatment of staff that a number of potential staffers have withdrawn from consideration to manage her campaign because of it.

Mick Mulvaney Discusses Possible Shutdown

Acting White House chief-of-staff Mick Mulvaney appears on Fox News to discuss the ongoing political efforts of the resistance movement, Nancy Pelosi’s faux-negotiation strategy, and the larger objective to secure the southern border. In the distant background, President Trump is already building enhanced fencing to secure the U.S-Mexico border and the larger conversation is about the politics of funding. Mulvaney notes the funding for border security can come from a variety of mechanisms available to the President, so the issue of direct funding for a border wall is essentially a political argument where democrats must maintain the optics of resistance.

Everything you need to know about this propaganda is obvious in the first few seconds of the interview with Gayle King: “I know this has been a very difficult week for you and the state of Virginia, so where would you like to begin”… Obviously there has been a great deal of planning and careful construct for this interview. CBS is openly attempting to rehabilitate Virginia Governor Ralph Northam. It becomes more obvious as you listen to Northam speak that: (a) he’s an idiot; and, (b) whoever put him into office is not willing to lose their investment. (Video)

UPDATED Not in her notes or original report You would think that an admission of guilt would be included in a Title IX coordinator’s first report on a sexual misconduct investigation, or at least her notes. You’d be really suspicious if that admission of guilt showed up in the amended version of her report – after an accused student was unexpectedly granted an appeal. California State University-Fresno got rebuked in court this week for an unfair sexual misconduct proceeding against an accused student.

U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar will enter the 2020 presidential race on today. The media will likely frame the 58-year-old three term senator as a moderate voice. However, Kloubuchar is well known in DC for her nasty and spiteful disposition and tendency toward fits of uncontrollable rage and anger. (Snip)Klobuchar’s campaign announcement comes amid several news reports that staff in her Senate office were asked to do menial tasks, including some personal in nature like laundry, making it difficult for her to hire high-level campaign strategists

WASHINGTON -- The top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee told Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that the U.S. needs to investigate reports of American mercenaries working abroad for possible violations of the law. Frontier Services Group, which was created by Blackwater founder Erik Prince, days ago announced a preliminary deal with China to build a training center in Xinjiang. Up to a million Uyghurs have been imprisoned in government indoctrination camps in the region. In October, Buzzfeed reported on the Delaware-incorporated Spear Operations Group using American mercenaries in a

Two months after Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro visited his counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara, a mysterious company called Sardes sprang into existence. The firm started business with a bang in January of 2018, when it imported about $41 million worth of gold from Venezuela, the first such transaction between the two countries in records that go back 50 years. The next month its volume more than doubled, with Sardes transporting almost $100 million worth to Turkey. By November, when President Donald Trump signed an executive order authorizing sanctions on Venezuelan gold -- after sending an envoy

In December 2014, I had an abortion at 29 weeks, after my first baby was diagnosed with a brain abnormality called lissencephaly. The early diagnosis—lissencephaly is sometimes not diagnosed until after birth—meant her case was severe and her prognosis was grim: We could expect her to live for two to six years while suffering from frequent respiratory infections and intermittently choking on her own saliva. Her cognitive development would be arrested or even reversed by painful seizures. She might have been able to smile socially and/or track motion with her eyes, but maybe not.

What would Dr. John Silber make of BU alumna Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? The longtime president of Boston University would not be impressed, I dare say, with the semiliterate millennial who has gone in months from sticky-fingered Manhattan bartender to the intellectual prophet of the Democratic Party. Which just goes to show you how much the party has changed since Silber was its nominee for governor in 1990. During that campaign, he used to wonder, aloud, why so many illegal immigrants from “tropical climes” were moving to Lawrence. As if he didn’t know.

California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is pulling hundreds of National Guard troops from the state’s southern border, in a rebuke to President Trump’s characterization of immigration. "The border ´emergency´ is a manufactured crisis," Newsom is expected to say say during his State of the State address Tuesday. "And California will not be part of this political theater.” Last year, former California Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown agreed to deploy National Guard troops to California’s border with Mexico, but insisted that they would be instructed to enforce immigration laws. Brown’s successor made the decision to pull the 360 troops currently stationed at

The world’s insects are hurtling down the path to extinction, threatening a “catastrophic collapse of nature’s ecosystems”, according to the first global scientific review. More than 40% of insect species are declining and a third are endangered, the analysis found. The rate of extinction is eight times faster than that of mammals, birds and reptiles. The total mass of insects is falling by a precipitous 2.5% a year, according to the best data available, suggesting they could vanish within a century. The planet is at the start of a sixth mass extinction in its history, with huge losses already
