I want everyone reading this to understand something. I know that the last few years have numbed us to the idea of 'unprecedented historical events' because they seem to be happening every other Tuesday, but the #TrumpIndictment may be the single most historic event in the lives of anybody alive today save for the atomic bombings. After having read the reports, the unsealed charges, the professional analyses, and the response from the right, I can say with confidence that if humanity exists millennia from now, this will still be in every history textbook printed. Because just like in the aftermath of the atomic bombings, or the advent of the steam engine, or the fall of the Roman Empire, or the myriad other paradigm shifting events our species has been witness to, I am left wondering if this is the beginning of humanity's next chapter, and the dissolution of the American hegemon as it exists, or is this the beginning of the end?

- Obama left them!

- The prosecutor is disgraceful!

- They're MY documents! My country! My entitlement!

- Hoax!

The lawyers for an Epstein victim suing Chase

To answer for crimes from years ago,
Placed on Jeffrey Epstein whom we all know
For the sake of the victims, justice will flow
Examining the part JPMorgan played, oh,
Those responsible must show their face.

“The Justice Department had little choice but to charge Trump. The evidence of intentional misconduct and comprehensive obstruction of justice is just too strong. Any other decision would place presidents outside the rule of federal law and declare to the American public that its presidents enjoy something akin to a royal privilege. This is a Republic not a monarchy and if the Justice Department can prove its claims, then Donald Trump belongs in prison.” ~ David French
#Justice #Opinion #TrumpIndictment

The #indictment of #Trump is not tragic for our country, it is a triumph for #democracy everywhere — but only if we see the process of justice in this case through to the end. The power of law and the idea that no one is above it is the only solid protection that democracies have against authoritarianism and oligarchy. #Justice is an ideal, and we must strive continuously to make it real, something that people trust. That’s how we protect democracy from dictators.

A bonus sample - page 17:

#Trump is documented showing highly classified documents to visitors without security clearance, and bragging about how secret they were. Supplemented by his own words at a press conference saying how "illegal" it is to share classified documents... (blaming whoever did so and shared with the press)

There are also transcripts elsewhere of his railing against Hillary Clinton's handling classified documents, & how HE never would.

#truth #justice #accountability

Page 17 of the USA v. Trump +1 Indictment 

"TRUMP commented that an ongoing military operation in Country B was not going well. 

TRUMP showed the PAC Representative a classified map of Country B and told the PAC Representative that he should not be showing the map to the PAC Representative and to not get too close. The PAC Representative did not have a security clearance or any need-to-know classified information about the military operation."

36. On February 16, 2017, four years before TRUMP's disclosures of classified information set forth above, TRUMP said at a press conference:

"The first thing I thought of when I heard about it is, how does the press get this information that's classified? How do they do it? You know why? Because it's an illegal process, and the press should be ashamed of themselves. But more importantly, the people that gave out the information to the press should be ashamed of themselves. Really ashamed."

The elephant in the room:

CNN Headline - "Say bye-bye to any federal charges against Trump if he's elected in 2024"

That's the game he's playing for.

The best possible thing Biden could do in the remainder of his term, would be to convince DoJ to change their arbitrary rule about not prosecuting a sitting president.

Forever more... if a President is suspected of criminal behavior, they will be investigated just like anybody else, and if that President is indicted, then their term ENDS RIGHT THERE and the Vice-President takes the reins.

Its stupid to trash our justice system and equal treatment under the law, when we have a built in solution in the form of a Vice President.

Ever since Jan. 6th we have been watching the consequences of FAILING TO APPLY JUSTICE EQUALLY BY FAILING TO PROSECUTE A SITTING PRESIDENT.

#Mastodon #security

Evidently, there is a security flaw in Mastodon (see screenshot). It's not prudent to trust unknown admins with our #data.

Therefore, how do we make the #Fediverse admins more accountable? Or, should the fediverse be developed to be more user-friendly - so that we can connect directly to the network without having to depend on servers? (that is do-able. e.g., p2p networks)

#software #SocialMedia #data #hack #admin #justice #activism #equity
Say no to #BigBrother #network #surveillance or unjust #admin #employers #corporations #corruption

A screenshot. As readers can see by this screenshot - on the server there were 250 "followers" on my account. As I recall, there were also hundreds of "follows". But, after suspension, the list now only shows 12 follows.

So, what's happened? Has the admin sabotaged the data? Effectively, now the account has been suspended (data deleted! without warning or any written reason provided). Therefore, I can't transfer the 250 followers to another server. 

Evidently, a security flaw in Mastodon. It's not prudent to trust unknown admins with our data.
