Biden violating his campaign pledge, 'politicizing' DOJ to do his bidding, legal experts warn
Biden directed DOJ to file lawsuits against GOP-led Georgia and Texas over voting and anti-abortion laws
By Kelly Laco | Fox News

President Biden is facing harsh criticism from legal experts and elected officials for violating his campaign promise to keep the Department of Justice (DOJ) non-political, after he directed the department to pursue politically charged lawsuits against Republican-led states.

In recent weeks, Biden – supported by other Democrats and liberal groups – has green-lighted DOJ to file lawsuits against Georgia, over its state election statute, and Texas, over its controversial anti-abortion law. These political directives by the president come after he promised on the campaign trail that he would keep politics out of the department and it would be "totally independent" of him.

Biden said multiple times in 2020 that he would "not direct [DOJ] who to prosecute, what to prosecute, how to prosecute."

Now, legal experts are saying that although Biden campaigned as a moderate, his decision to direct Attorney General Merrick Garland to pursue multiple political lawsuits shows that he is weaponizing the department to pursue a left-wing agenda.

Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino told Fox News, "President Biden campaigned as a moderate but since taking office he and his Department of Justice have just carried water for the left-wing dark money groups who elected him – at the expense of the rule of law."

Stephen Miller, founder of America First Legal and former senior adviser to President Trump, said Biden has "horrendously and hopelessly politicized" DOJ, which is a violation of legal ethics.

"Joe Biden has horrendously and hopelessly politicized the DOJ by using them as an arm of the Democratic Party, filing frivolous litigation solely for political – not legal – reasons. This is a clear violation of legal ethics and it warrants a full investigation into who directed these deeply offensive and utterly meritless lawsuits against the states which clearly have no legal basis whatsoever," said Miller in a statement to Fox News.

Jessica Anderson, executive director of Heritage Action for America, accused Biden of lying on the campaign trail and claimed that his DOJ is actually "the most political and weaponized DOJ," in a tweet.

Elected officials in GOP-led states are also weighing in, saying that Biden's political lawsuits, and other crises his administration is managing, are damaging to the country.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told Fox News that it is "shameful" that Biden broke his campaign promise to keep DOJ non-political.

"It is shameful that Biden has broken countless campaign promises, however I’m not surprised. He is a danger to our country and is responsible for crises after crises – the border, Afghanistan, the economy and more to come. This won’t deter me from fighting for our freedoms and the law," said Paxton.

The attorney general for Montana, Austin Knudsen, said Biden's "weaponization" of federal agencies is wrong and will make Americans more skeptical of government.

"President Biden’s weaponization of federal agencies against the interests of states is wrong and will only serve to sow more skepticism of the federal government. Whether it’s trying to force masks on kids in schools or trying to overturn state laws enacted by duly elected state legislatures, it’s wrong," said Knudsen in a statement to Fox News.

"As Montanans' attorney general, I will continue to fight alongside other attorneys general to fight the Biden administration’s meddling in our states’ affairs," said Knudsen, who is leading multiple lawsuits against the president ranging from energy to immigration.

In June, Garland directed DOJ to sue Georgia, alleging Republican state lawmakers rushed through a sweeping overhaul with an intent to deny Black voters equal access to the ballot. Georgia officials, including Gov. Brian Kemp and Attorney General Chris Carr, fired back, saying the lawsuit is "blatantly political" and that Georgia's law actually strengthens security, expands access and improves transparency in elections.

Biden slammed the Supreme Court's ruling last week that Texas' restrictive abortion law could remain in effect in a 5-4 decision, calling it an "unprecedented assault on a woman’s constitutional rights." He also vowed that the his administration would take action through a "whole-of-government effort," and it was confirmed by Fox News Thursday that DOJ is preparing to sue imminently.

Garland officially announced the lawsuit against Texas during a press conference at DOJ headquarters on Thursday afternoon.

The White House didn't immediately return a request for comment.

One Of The Top Progressives In Congress Runs A ‘Horrible’ And ‘Miserable’ Office As Four Staffers Go Public
https://www.shorenewsnetwork.com ^ | Sept 14, 2021
Posted on 9/20/2021, 1:40:33 PM by 11th_VA

Former staffers of the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus said the congresswoman’s office is a “miserable” and “harsh” environment, BuzzFeed News reported.

BuzzFeed spoke with 14 anonymous ex-staffers who worked for Democratic Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington over the course of her nearly five years in Congress. The report, which took three months to compile, said the former staffers described the work environment as an “especially harsh office with a boss whose treatment of workers runs contrary to the public expectations she has set for others.”

Ex-staffers speaking with BuzzFeed painted Jayapal as someone who publicly berated those who worked under her and required grueling hours, the outlet reported. Her office had ever-changing expectations and a low tolerance for mistakes, they said.

“I’ve worked in bad environments before, and I have worked in some awful environments before for some awful people. I’ve been colleagues with some awful people,” one former Jayapal staffer told BuzzFeed. “I have never worked in a place that has made me so miserable and so not excited for public service as Pramila Jayapal’s office.”

The congresswoman advocates for progressive policies, including the Paycheck Recovery Act, intended to slow layoffs during the pandemic. In November 2020, however, Jayapal laid off two of her staffers without severance, sources familiar with the situation told BuzzFeed.

One of the dismissed staffers was invited to apply to a position that reportedly consolidated the two roles, the sources told BuzzFeed. After going through the full application, the staffer found out the job went to someone else during an all-hands meeting, despite the responsibilities of the position being basically the same as their previous one…

AOC’s ‘Tax the Rich’ dress designer Aurora James owes debt in multiple states

Designer Aurora James called her “Tax the Rich” dress for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a “powerful message” — but it’s not one she has taken to heart.

The 37-year-old fashionista who made waves at the Met Gala with Democratic-Socialist AOC last week is a notorious tax deadbeat with unpaid debts dogging her in multiple states, records show.

Most of luxe-living James’ arrears center on Cultural Brokerage Agency, an LLC she formed in 2011 to serve as the parent company of her fashion brand, which today is known as Brother Vellies. It’s a favorite of people like Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Meghan Markle.

The company racked up three open tax warrants in New York state for failing to withhold income taxes from employees’ paychecks totaling $14,798, the state Department of Taxation and Finance told The Post. The debts — which were incurred before the pandemic — stem from 2018 and 2019. The company has been hit with 15 warrants in total since 2015.

The company got into a deeper hole with the feds. Between April 2018 and April 2019, the Internal Revenue Service placed six federal liens on Cultural Brokerage Agency totaling $103,220. The liens specifically cite the company’s failure to remit employee payroll taxes. The IRS declined to comment on their current status.

“Just because they take it out of your paycheck doesn’t mean they’re sending it to the government,” David Cenedella, a Baruch College taxation lecturer explained after reviewing the liens. “It’s certainly not something you want. I would not say your average business out there has this. Something went wrong.”

While James apparently has no problem stiffing the Taxman, she isn’t shy about taking money from taxpayers — her company received in $41,666 in pandemic relief aid.

Over the years Cultural Brokerage Agency has also faced multiple legal challenges as a result of habitual nonpayment of worker benefits.

In October 2019 the state Worker’s Compensation Board slapped the company with a $17,000 fine for not carrying worker’s-comp insurance between March 2017 and February 2018. The company currently owes $62,722 and no payments have been received to date, a rep for the board told The Post. Workers’ comp is paid out when an employee is hurt at work and misses time.

Ex-staffers blasted the operation as a sweatshop that relied on legions of unpaid interns working full-time jobs.

An ex-intern called James “quite cold,” adding that “she never gives recognition or acknowledgement to her team.”

James is also an alleged rent deadbeat, records show. In August 2020, James’ landlord filed papers to evict Brother Vellies from their location at 71 Franklin St. in Brooklyn, as well as demanding more than $25,000 plus interest for staying beyond the end of her lease. The case was settled.

She was sued by a previous landlord in February 2018 for more than $5,000 in unpaid rent at her shop’s old address at 209 West 38th Street in Manhattan.

Though AOC proudly labeled James a “working class” designer as they waltzed down the Met Gala red carpet, her lifestyle has been anything but. As the pandemic raged across America, igniting a deep recession, James scooped up a $1.6 million residence in Los Angeles in September 2020.

True to form, the property is already listed as “delinquent” by the Los Angeles County assessor’s office, which told The Post James owed $2,504 in property taxes.

Though AOC was comped tickets to the annual ball for boldfacers, entry to the famously exclusive Met Gala runs $35,000 a head. James attended the bash with Benjamin Bronfman, a rumored boyfriend she’s frequently spotted with. Bronfman, 39, is a scion of the powerful Bronfman family and its distilling empire. He is worth an estimated $100 million.

James’ unpaid bills belie her champagne tastes. She frequently jets off to exclusive locations, her Instagram richly decorated with photos from Jamaica, Morocco, France, Indonesia, Mexico, Italy, the United Kingdom and The Hamptons.

She also found money to make a $2,700 donation to Hillary Clinton in 2016.

“It’s the height of hypocrisy when socialists attend a $30,000 per ticket gala with a message of ‘tax the rich’ while wearing an overpriced dress by a luxury designer who doesn’t pay taxes,” Republican Staten Island Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis told The Post. “What happened to everyone paying their fair share?”

This pretty much sums up how the 2020 election was influenced/impacted by big tech / gov't coverups.

No conspiracies, all facts.

Yes the liberals who cried afoul after 2016 will turn a blind eye here, or make excuses.

It was obvious at the time, but it’s no longer disputable that the CIA, Big Tech & corporate press colluded with the DNC to censor true reporting about clear political corruption by Hunter Biden, and serious evidence of Joe Biden’s involvement.

Conservatives and Trump supporters will not be surprised by this, but my hope is that any liberal/left-leaning who consider themselves good-faith actors, and not simply win-at-all-costs ideological fighters, will listen to this and consider its meaning & long-term implications.

It is possible to be happy, in a general sense, that Trump is no longer President while still recognizing that what the CIA & Big Tech did w/the Hunter laptop reporting was a perhaps unprecedented perversion our system. It’s the kind of thing that ends republics.

Imagine in 2016: If Big Tech & the corporate press banned any discussion of the Trump Access Hollywood tape. Imagine the execs making the decision were long-time GOP operatives. Imagine the CIA published conscious lies about its authenticity. What would you think?

You might think: This election was stolen. And you’d be right. The CIA, Big Tech & media didn’t do this to protect Biden’s historical memory; they did it to affect the outcome of the 2020 election. The Founders would’ve done more than break a few windows at the Capitol over it.

The FBI spied on the 2016 Trump campaign. The CIA colluded against the 2020 Trump campaign. When these things happen, we no longer have even the fig leaf of a representative government. When these things happen, the government is no longer legitimate.

JoeJill Biden claimed he was a unifier.

JoeJill Biden claimed he would support our allies abroad.

JoeJill Biden has 8 blatant anti-semite Democrats in the Senate serving in his administration.

JoeJill Biden does not have the mental capacity or courage to address the Democrat traitors within his administration, including himself.

Probably the biggest scandal of my lifetime.  But don't expect any apology tours from all of the people (in media, Congress, etc.) who participated in and pushed this conspiracy theory.

They will not be punished.

When they start making people pay their bills again you will see the true economy. We will also know they've done all they think they can get away with and have midterms be believable.

No doubt.  There is rarely accountability. 

But I am really interested to see what else Durham has.

President Biden:  "Let's be clear, vaccination requirements should not be another issue that divides us."

Also President Biden:  "This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated."
