Impeachment v2.0 Day 4: Is That All You Got?

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Friday, February 12, 2021

The third-rate lawyers trying to defend Trumpanzee, aka “POS45” and formerly as the “Liar in Chief” from charges of Inciting Insurrection, were given 16 hours to make their case.

They quit after 4.

Remember: Charles Manson did NOT kill anyone, yet he was convicted of murder.

The Senate’s RINOs will likely NOT vote to convict their hero.

As I wrote recently, sadly, The Republican Party is dead. There are only 6 remaining members.

Trump’s Georgia Shakedown A Preparatory For January 6 Insurrection

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, February 8, 2021

The transcript of then-President Trump’s hour-long call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is too lengthy to duplicate here, per se, but suffice it to say, it all boiled down to this oft-repeated remark by Trump during the call:

“The ballots are corrupt, and they’re brand new, and they don’t have seals, and there’s a whole thing with the ballots. But the ballots are corrupt. And you are going to find that they are — which is totally illegal — it is more illegal for you than it is for them because, you know, what they did and you’re not reporting it. That’s a criminal, that’s a criminal offense. And you can’t let that happen. That’s a big risk to you and to Ryan, your lawyer.

“All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have because we won the state.”

The audio and transcript of the call may be read and heard at several sites, but here are two:

The call, which occurred on a Saturday afternoon, January 2, 2021, is a classic example of a shakedown.

In common parlance, the term “shakedown” refers to a criminal activity, describing extortion of money, as by blackmail. It is the preferred and primary definition in most reputable, and modern dictionaries.

Even the “Urban Dictionary,” a repository of modern colloquial use acknowledges similarly, but takes it at least one step further, by also acknowledging context of usage by writing that shakedown is,

“Another word for extortion/blackmail, or the obtaining of a good or service through means of force, threats/intimidation, or abuse of power.
Shakedown by force, threats and intimidation:

“Shakedown by abuse of power:”

Only one other dictionary acknowledges that capacity by writing that shakedown refers to “extortion, as by blackmail or threats of violence.”

Merriam-Webster defines it as “to rob by the use of trickery or threats.”

The Online Slang Dictionary finds similarly, by writing that it means “to extort. That is, to obtain something via force, threats, intimidation, abuse of power, etc.”

Abuse of power by threats – such as Read the rest of this entry »
