Where is the line drawn between merely protesting and seditious conspiracy? I believe New York’s Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is toeing that line very closely.
Schneiderman is organizing an army “to take back America from the likes of President Donald Trump.” Before a crowd in Kingston, NY Thursday night, he outlined his plan.
First, let’s take a look at the definition of seditious conspiracy, according to 18 U.S.C. § 2384….
Seditious conspiracy: If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
Liberal weenies have been emboldened by being permitted to commit criminal acts with impunity against our government, especially our duly elected President. This is clearly seditious conspiracy. Give them and inch, they take a mile. Until charges are brought up against these assclowns and their financiers, like George Soros, it will only get worse.
And, to you liberal weenie crybabies who are beside yourselves with anxiety and anger and are running amok with masks covering your faces, destroying property and behaving like spoiled children over the election of Donald Trump, I have this to say…. Get used to it! When President Trump’s eight years are up and America is well on the road to being made great again, guess who we are going to elect next? Another patriot, a Trump clone. Go ahead, cry, bawl your eyes out, embarrass yourselves. Then, go away, you smell bad!
KINGSTON – New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman left no doubts about his political leanings, during a visit to Kingston Thursday evening, according to Mid Hudson News.
The 40-minute discussion, organized by Citizen Action of the Hudson Valley, and hosted by Kingston Mayor Steve Noble at City Hall, he outlined a detailed plan to take back America from the likes of President Donald Trump.
The fully occupied Common Council chamber was transformed into a strategic lecture room, outlining how to fight the recent conservative reversals of liberal public policies, particularly immigration, mass incarceration, reproductive health, environmental reform, and affordable care.
“People all across America are fed up about the status quo of both the Democratic and Republican parties,” Schneiderman said. “There is a rejection of what were the policies going into last year’s election. he said, referring to President Trump as “my former fraud defendant.”
Schneiderman said the election was not a rejection of progressive policies, maintaining that a majority of Americans believe in higher minimum wage, LGBTQ equality, and that too many people are in prison.
“What happened really is a failure of the leadership of either party to present something that responded to the level of people’s anger,” Schneiderman said. He said all of the passion and energy must now be channeled in a direction which will make a difference in people’s lives.
The solution, he noted, is to build a mass movement from the ground up, working not only campaigns on Capitol Hill, but in all 50 state legislatures. Groups like Citizen Action, and left-leaning attorneys general, press forward on specific issue points.
The three-step attack is to: fill in (state-level replacement of lost federal programs), fight back (protest, engagement, challenges), and move forward (hearts and minds, new political ground).
“We have to advance progressive reforms at the state level, if they’re not happening in Washington,” Schneiderman said. “There is no such thing as an issue that is untouchable, and there is no such thing as a safe Republican seat.”
Schneiderman is currently litigating immigration and Obamacare cases in federal court, winning several victories. The original version of “Trumpcare” died before reaching the Senate floor.
“In our constitutional system, no one is above the law, and no one is beneath the law; everyone has rights,” Schneiderman said, adding that the President is subject to rules just like everyone else.
Schneiderman revealed that he was a board member of Citizen Action for many years, before taking public office. He still considers himself to be an activist, he proudly stated.
Outside, several people shook their heads in dismay, calling the whole affair unethical. Republican 3rd Ward alderman candidate Ellen DiFalco and former Kingston ethics board chairwoman Jean Jacobs both felt the AG went too far. Prosecutors are quasi-judicial officers forbidden from engaging in partisan politics, or the even mere appearance of impropriety.
