It never was a thing, except on the Fox propaganda network before Fox and Murdoch decided to begin moving away from Trump because he is a loser for them and millions of others in the Fox audience.

What is a thing is the U.S. Department of Justice Special Counsel appointed yesterday who is leaving his job in The Hague as a prosecutor of war criminals to supervise the Jan. 6 investigation and the investigation of Trump's theft of U.S. nuclear secrets, military secrets, and other Top Secret Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) stolen by the twice-impeached orange jesus, who admires Adolf Hitler and credits him with great achievements, while ignoring the fact Hitler was responsible for an estimated 58 million deaths between 1933 and 1945, including Americans; and most of the estimated 58 million dead were civilians — children, women, and men.

What is a thing is the ongoing investigation by the New York State Attorney General into the illegal and fraudulent activities of The Trump Organization, a criminal and racketeering organization grifting, stealing, defrauding, and conning over a period of many years.

What is a thing is the ongoing investigation by the District Attorney of Fulton County Georgia into Trump's attempts to coerce the Georgia Secretary of State to fabricate election votes illegally and magically for Trump so he fraudulently could overturn the Georgia election results.

What is a thing is that people are bailing on Trump, including his children, evangelical leaders across the country, Republican Members of Congress, and conservative media, including Fox News and Rupert Murdoch. People say the children and wife of orange jesus silently are waiting in the wings for the day he croaks so they can begin fighting each other like vicious bloodthirsty animals to get their hands on any money or property they think Trump has.

Uhm ok? I legit didn't know who that guy was, though idk if calling nearly half of what i assume is your country as nazis is all that viable...

Either case just thought that description on the post sounded dope af. Though thank you for at least saying what the anger with the guy was about

2

u/sleepyleperchaun 9 Nov 20 '22

Regarding calling half the country nazis, when the boot fits...

I don't think most Republicans are that evil, but they let that shit slide and that is just as bad. Trump literally (and infamously) told white supremacists to, and I quote, "stand back, stand by". That is literally nazi shit and the entire republican supporting portion of the nation decided that it was acceptable. Do with that what you will, but I don't feel like it matters much how many in the country support them, whether it's 1% or 100%,its more noble to call that shit out than allow it. Also goes for the LGBTQ community along with the racism stuff. We shouldn't normalize hate.

0

u/Hangry_Jones 4 Nov 20 '22

Thing is you take away the meaning of the word by what you are describing as nazis.

Nazis imo are people who has a genuine hate of people that aren't straight, white and follow the ideologies of fascism. To the point of killing or violence.

And honestly what you have shown and described honestly just devalues the word.

I think many who followed either Trump or Hillary was misguided and a very small % might have been extremist. But I don't think most where evil.

Though honestly coming from a country that after seeing your ludicrous elections and start doing the same im honestly just in disbelief of how childish America is and the effect it has.

I think people with the mindset or ideas that you are showing is the reason your country is so divided.

3

u/sleepyleperchaun 9 Nov 21 '22

Your reply: you devalue the word - description of the word - you devalued the word - both sides bad - Americans are childish (without providing your home country for context). This may be one of the least put together replies I've ever received.

Trump telling white supremacists to stand by is literally nazi type shit. Literally. Argue that point. Please.

Additionally, I already pointed out that I don't think they are all nazis. That was literally in my previous reply, did you not read it? Thanks for repeating my point I guess?

But I do agree that the country is childish. That being said, one side has literal nazis and the other doesn't. So again, calling that out isn't incorrect, maybe the right should focus more on legislation rather than social causes and try to tell the racists in the country that they don't want their support. Maybe, just maybe, we would call them nazis anymore then.

They stormed the capitol building. It’s far less secure. It’s still a big deal but storming the White House would’ve been a much, much bigger deal and also resulted in a way more severe response. Also the people storming the capitol were supporters of trump so it would’ve made no sense to storm the White House at that time.

Thanks for the answer. I do know, but I was hoping to find out what was the name of the crime in the comment: "Seems excessive for the crime".

In reality, the criminal was convicted on 6 specific violations of federal law, nothing more and nothing less, and none of the convictions include "criminal trespass, first degree burglary, insurrection, etc.", which is spelled out clearly in black and white in the DOJ News release:

  1. Obstruction of an official proceeding (felony).

  2. Theft of government property (misdemeanor).

  3. Entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds (misdemeanor).

  4. Disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds (misdemeanor).

  5. Disorderly conduct in a Capitol Building (misdemeanor).

  6. Parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol Building (misdemeanor).

u/Pure-Kaleidoscope759 7 Nov 20 '22

This is true, and Ohio voters voted to require the General Assembly to appoint a nonpartisan redistricting commission to fairly redistrict the state and federal districts. Of course, the General Assembly dragged its collective feet, even though the Supreme Court of Ohio ordered them to redistrict. They proceeded with the election using their gerrymandered maps, and since the Supreme Court is now 6 Republicans to 1 Democrat, they are not likely to be required to act. The Ohio Democratic Party really needs to get its act together.

Well, they only have to make it to 2026. Statute of limitations is five years. Once they get past that, they're scot free.

3

u/Molire 9 Nov 20 '22

In the US, any attorney who gives such blanket assurance to their clients might be setting up their clients up for a sudden and unexpected arrest in the dark of night and sentenced to prison for years. The statute of limitations can extend beyond 5 years in some cases, e.g., cases involving a fugitive, terrorism, DNA profile indictment, and more. (Caveat: this is not legal advice. See an attorney for legal advice).

Anyone who attacked the Capitol on Jan. 1, 2021, and is evading or running from justice or staying low in fearful obscurity should not assume anything. The FBI aims to arrest all of them over the coming hours, days, weeks, months, and perhaps years, in any U.S. state, territory, or foreign country. It's the largest criminal investigation in United States history.

I wonder how many are hiding in remote forest, mountain, desert, or wilderness areas, living in cars, pickup trucks, RVs, tents, shacks, or caves and using fictitious names and stolen or counterfeit identification documents.

Evan Neumann is so afraid of arrest and justice, he fled the US. The FBI believes he is living in Belarus.

Here are some pictures and videos of people of interest to the FBI. If you recognize any of them, you can contact the FBI:

My review of cases revealed the following data, valid as of November 19, 2022:

A total of 892 cases have been charged by the United States Attorney's Office District of Columbia (USAODC).

The United States District Court for the District of Columbia has jurisdiction over all 892 cases charged by USAODC.

36 is the number of attackers who have been convicted on one or more felony offenses and sentenced to prison.

The date of arrest for those 36 cases ranges from January 7, 2021 to December 13, 2021.

The interval from the date of arrest to the date of sentencing for those 36 cases ranges from a low of 136 days to a high of 662 days. The average is about 438 days.

The term of imprisonment for each of those 36 cases ranges from a low of 1 year and 1 day in prison up to a high of 10 years in prison. The average is about 48 months in prison.

The preceding numbers do not account for any of the attackers who have been convicted on misdemeanor offenses and sentenced to 1 year or less in jail or prison.

Not really a difficult case to prosecute though is it? We have video footage of him doing it, he did it, next. A little different if it was a he-said-she-said, but this one is no surprise.

True. It's always odd how long things take. If you don't have bail, you could wait up to 6 months in jail for a trial even if you're pleading guilty

Over 900 people have been charged for the Jan 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol. Takes time to identify suspects and move them through the system--from arrest to sentence. The FBI is still looking for individuals. Here's a list of those arrested so far:

They have received and will receive different sentences.

For example:

Thomas Webster is a retired NYPD police officer and former Marine.

On Sept. 1, 2022, at age 56, he was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison, 3 years of supervised release, and $2,060 in restitution. Now, he gets to be a convicted felon for the rest of his life.

Today, the Federal Bureau of Prisons inmate locator shows that Thomas Webster is living with 1,325 other male offenders at Texarkana FCI, where the long list of hundreds of rules and prohibited acts include Prohibited Acts 100 Killing (p. 72), 114 Sexual assault of any person (p. 72), and 205 Engaging in sexual acts (p. 74).

u/Pure-Kaleidoscope759 7 Nov 20 '22

Webster was the guy who charged a Capitol police officer with a flag pole.

2

u/Molire 9 Nov 20 '22

Exactly.

At his sentencing hearing, the judge reportedly told Webster that he has expressed no remorse or regrets and has accepted no responsibility for his actions on Jan. 6, .

Minutes later, the judge sentenced Webster to 10 years in prison and other penalties.

I would not be surprised to learn that to this day, in prison at Texarkana FCI, Webster still has not taken responsibility for his actions. How might this affect his future?

Some might say Webster is a candidate to re-offend and go back to prison after he has completed his sentence and is released from BOP custody on his scheduled release date 12/15/2030. Why?

United States Sentencing Commission statistics show that after federal offenders were released from BOP custody during the year 2010, nearly one-half (49.3%) of them were rearrested during the first 8 years after their date of release from BOP custody.

Arguably, those rearrests might have led some of them to a jail sentence or being sentenced to prison, again.

The ol' revolving door...in prison...out of prison...in prison...out of prison....

u/xero_peace 9 Nov 19 '22

Oh I'm aware. I just think 3 years is too lenient.

u/PhoebusQ47 6 Nov 19 '22

Three years is pretty far from a slap on the wrist, especially considering his individual actions.

The hunger for basically life sentences for everything in this country is anti-democratic in itself.

Taking three years from someone’s life is a pretty significant punishment.

u/xero_peace 9 Nov 19 '22

Do you understand how sentence serving actually works? Most places only require a minimum of 1/3 of their sentence be served. Throw in "good behavior" and you have someone who could easily be out in a year with probation. The harshest part of this is the rights he will lose. The time isn't even that bad if dude can just be half decent while in prison. He'll be out in no time and back to hating the libs that ruined his life.

u/PhoebusQ47 6 Nov 19 '22

Yes, I do. But that’s not how sentencing works, you don’t take into account reductions that may occur on the backend to make it just. The sentence on its face should be what is deserved. It’s not just sentencing to oversentence on the assumption that administrative policies will account for it.

You’re incorrect about “most places”, incidentally. It’s much more complex than that. Way too broad a brush.

u/xero_peace 9 Nov 19 '22

That doesn't change that it is a slap on the wrist. It reinforces my point. A year for attempting to subvert democracy and being a terrorist.

u/PhoebusQ47 6 Nov 19 '22 edited Nov 19 '22

I mean, it does. If you’re not clear-headed enough to see that there’s not much I can say about it to change that. Justice is justice no matter whose side you’re on.

Edit: nice block, chief, way to “win” the argument. Suggesting that your political opinions (which we likely share) may be clouding your judgement is not ad hominem. That’s not attacking your person, it’s attacking your thought process. Words, even Latin ones, mean things.

As soon as we’re sentencing Trumpists all of a sudden progressives become Tough On Crime™️.

If it's a consecutive sentence with a percentage served (i.e 3 years at 50 percent served) he could already have time served but would probably be on probation.

u/Molire 9 Nov 19 '22 edited Nov 19 '22

Edit: Federal offenders sentenced after November 1, 1987 are not eligible for parole.

Here's a synopsis of the justice he has experienced, will experience, and can experience:

He made his bed.
He gets to sleep in it.
He now is a convicted felon for the rest of his life.


If he earns the maximum possible 162 days good conduct time of up to 54 days for each year of sentence imposed by the court, his scheduled date for release from Federal Bureau of Prisons custody would be on or about Nov. 23, 2024, after BOP has given him credit for time served during the 211 days he was held behind bars under federal custody from the day he was convicted by a jury on Apr. 14, 2022, to the day he was sentenced by a jury on Nov. 11, 2022.


His sentence also includes the court order for him to pay $2,000 in restitution.

After he has served his prison sentence and is released from BOP custody, he will be under federal supervised release for 36 months, which would be until about Nov. 23, 2027.

If he violates any of the strict conditions during 3 years of supervised release, or if he engages in any conduct that violates local, state, or federal laws, he can be sent to jail or back to prison.


During his 3 years of supervised release, he has a chance of being rearrested and being sent to jail or back to prison.

United States Sentencing Commission statistics show that nearly one-half (49.3%) of all federal offenders released from prison and BOP custody in 2010, were rearrested within 8 years after their release dates.


Under federal law, convicted felons are prohibited from having any gun or any ammunition. If he is caught hiding, concealing, holding, using, borrowing, owning, buying, selling, transferring, exporting, or importing a gun or ammunition at anytime during the rest of his life, he can be sent back to prison.

In the US, in 2021, a total of 7,454 convicted felons were caught in violation of federal firearms laws, and 96.9%, or 7,223 of them were sentenced to terms ranging from about 55 months in prison up to about 186 months in prison.

Suggestion: If anyone offers you a bet that convicted-felon Thompson will not be sent to jail or back to prison again sometime during the remainder of his life, consider taking the bet.
