"And hence when they have created among the masses an appetite for gifts and the habit of receiving them, democracy in its turn is abolished and changes into a rule of force and violence." -- Polybius, two thousand years ago

The parallels between 1987 and our current economic climate are impossible to ignore. Economic growth has slowed, inflation casts a menacing shadow, and the stock market teeters on the edge of uncertainty. But perhaps most concerning of all, valuations have soared to dizzying heights, reminiscent of the excesses that preceded the infamous crash of ’87.

New court filings in Special Counsel Jack Smith’s espionage and obstruction case against Trump and two co-defendants conclusively demonstrate that the government used the cover sheets to deceive the public as well as the court. The photo was a stunt, and one that adds more fuel to this dumpster-fire case.

Jay Bratt, who was the lead DOJ prosecutor on the investigation at the time and now is assigned to Smith’s team, described the photo this way in his August 30, 2022 response to Trump’s special master lawsuit:

“[Thirteen] boxes or containers contained documents with classification markings, and in all, over one hundred unique documents with classification markings…were seized. Certain of the documents had colored cover sheets indicating their classification status. (Emphasis added.) See, e.g., Attachment F (redacted FBI photograph of certain documents and classified cover sheets recovered from a container in the ‘45 office’).”

The DOJ’s clever wordsmithing, however, did not accurately describe the origin of the cover sheets. In what must be considered not only an act of doctoring evidence but willfully misleading the American people into believing the former president is a criminal and threat to national security, agents involved in the raid attached the cover sheets to at least seven files to stage the photo.

The Bishops of the Arizona Catholic Conference this week affirmed their pro-life stance and rejected the state’s repeal of its pre-Roe law, a repeal that will enable abortion up to 15 weeks in the state.

The bishops stated on May 2, “[we] wish to declare our firm and continued commitment to serving pre-born children and their Mothers.”

The bishops also condemned an extreme pro-abortion ballot initiative that, if successful, would make abortion legal in the state through all nine months, up to birth.
