Congratulations, America, we’ve joined the teams of esteemed nations that overtly assault and prosecute the political rivals of the sitting ruler….er, I imply duly elected chief. To be truthful, we’ve been politically persecuting individuals we discover inconvenient to our grasp plans lengthy earlier than the Biden regime took over.
Nonetheless, two different candidates who, in the interim, stay free to voice their dissent are vowing to place an finish to the weaponization of the Division of Justice. These two long-shot candidates promise to scrub up the corruption in our federal justice system and likewise swear to pardon one of many O.G.’s of reality bombing – Julian Assange.

Good Ole’ Bobby Jr.

You’re proper, Bobby; this isn’t the Soviet Union…nonetheless the America you’re keen on now not exists as a result of we actively imprison dissidents with out due course of on a regular basis. RFK Jr. offered proof of this level by itemizing out others he would pardon:

Vivek with the breakdown
On the appropriate aspect of the aisle, presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has additionally pledged to pardon Julian Assange “with out apology.”
With maybe the most effective breakdown as to why Mr. Assange’s persecution is so unjust, Mr. Ramaswamy explains:
“Assange did nothing aside from publish the data that was leaked to him. That’s what the D.C. Press Corps does day by day, but this particular person was politically disfavored, subsequently, he was persecuted by prosecution.”
The piece de resistance of Vivek’s illustration of the sheer unjustness of Assange’s persecution comes subsequent:
“Chelsea Manning, the one who really labored for the federal government who leaked that data, had her sentence commuted by President Obama. Why? As a result of Chelsea Manning is transgender, a part of the politically-favored class.”
If solely Assange would determine as one thing fashionable and a part of the victimhood tradition. Vivek hasn’t stopped there together with his pardon guarantees.
I’ll pardon @JulianAssange_ as a result of his prosecution was essentially unjust.

“I decide to pardon Trump promptly on January 20, 2025 and to revive the rule of legislation in our nation.”
Sadly, which means Vivek is destined to not win, not to mention make it to the primaries. If I had been him, I’d preserve my eyes open for warrants and baseless indictments.

The paperwork detailed atrocities, together with attainable and possible conflict crimes dedicated by america authorities in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Presently, Mr. Assange is confined to Belmarsh, a jail in the UK. Not too long ago his enchantment to evade extradition to america was denied.

It’s about belief
I’m all for individuals dealing with justice in the event that they’ve completed one thing unlawful. I consider in what our justice system is meant to do and that nobody is above the legislation.
However the reality is we don’t stay in a rustic with a blind justice system, and we have now a authorities that wields its powers to silence those that would communicate out in opposition to it. Vivek Ramaswamy said of this imbalance in our justice scales:
“There can’t be a two-tiered justice system on this nation. If there may be going to be a Trump-related particular counsel, there have to be a Biden-related particular counsel.”
Individuals don’t belief the federal government due to actions like those we’ve seen just lately by the Biden DOJ, unlawful baseless spying on Americans uncovered by Edward Snowden, and covered-up conflict crimes revealed by Julian Assange. This 12 months, a Harvard/CAPS ballot discovered that 71% of Individuals consider wide-ranging reforms are necessary to maintain legislation enforcement and the intelligence neighborhood from dabbling in our elections.
As a lot as each Democrats and Republicans like to speak down these two underdog candidates, they may be the most effective possibilities we have now for going again to a free republic. Vivek vows to “shut down” the FBI.
Bobby Jr. brazenly discusses the “overwhelming proof” that the CIA murdered his uncle, President John F. Kennedy. At the very least these two political punchlines are talking reality to energy earlier than they find yourself in jail cells, or worse. We’d need to begin taking them significantly.
