Over the last eight years or so, we’ve watched many of our sacred institutions crumble. It all started when President Trump splashed onto the political scene, shaking up the establishment and driving many of them to the brink of insanity in their relentless quest to take him down and restore their version of “order” to the dark realm. We’ve also seen a rise in the RINOs—politicians, judges, reporters, teachers, and so-called “experts” who masqueraded as conservatives but have since shown their true colors as establishment shills, all in hopes of ending the MAGA movement. This shift has wreaked havoc across countless sectors, but nowhere more so than in our justice system. It’s been hijacked by “activist judges,” and it’s not just the left-wingers.

Just take a look at Royce Lamberth, a Reagan-appointed judge, who’s gone on a revenge rampage against a J6 political prisoner. It should be noted that Judge Lamberth is not exactly in the best shape. He’s got a very bad habit of nodding off in the middle of trials and often needs assistance just getting out of his chair, according to intrepid J6 reporter Julie Kelly. Simply put, it’s pretty clear he’s not at the top of his game, both physically and mentally, yet this man is now acting like a one-man demolition squad, hell-bent on destroying a January 6th political prisoner who’s already been abused by this weaponized and unjust “justice system.”

The J6 political prisoner’s name is James Little, and during an appeal, he successfully argued that his punishment for joining the pro-Trump event at the US Capitol was illegal. However, thanks to the irrational, unhealthy, and unstable Judge Royce Lamberth, Mr. Little was resentenced to even more time in prison. This means he has to go back to jail, even though another judge said increasing his sentence after winning an appeal isn’t fair; it’s like being punished twice for the same thing. Now, he’s got to appeal all over again.

The Washington Post:

James Little successfully argued that his punishment for joining the pro-Trump riot at the U.S. Capitol was illegal. His reward: 60 more days behind bars.

In a scathing statement from the bench, Judge Royce C. Lamberth said Thursday that he was worried about “further danger to our country” because of Little and others’ “shameless attempts … to misinterpret or misrepresent what happened” on Jan. 6, 2021. While his audience was Little, a 53-year-old North Carolina truck driver, the judge also alluded to comments made by Republican lawmakers, including what he called a “preposterous” statement from Rep. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.) calling Jan. 6 defendants “hostages.”

“I have been shocked to watch some public figures try to rewrite history,” Lamberth said. “It’s up to the court to tell the truth. I hope a little truth will go a long way.”

Little was first sentenced by Lamberth in early 2022 to 60 days in prison and three years of probation after pleading guilty to illegally parading at the Capitol. But Little’s public defenders argued prison time and probation can’t be combined for a single “petty” misdemeanor charge. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit agreed.

When the ruling came down in August, Little had already served his time behind bars and about half his probation, so he asked to be set loose. Instead, Lamberth sentenced him anew to two more months in prison, saying Little had shown no remorse or respect for the criminal justice system since the riot.

“This is a matter of right versus wrong,” Lamberth said. “Mr. Little cannot bring himself to admit he did the wrong thing.” Little, appearing by video from his home in Claremont, N.C., shook his head and rolled his eyes as the judge spoke, occasionally muttering to himself.

This crazed, obese judge hands out tougher J6 sentences than anyone except for the foreign-born Tanya Chutkan, who just so happens to be presiding over Trump’s case, according to the Washington Post:

Lamberth is one of the toughest sentencers in the D.C. federal court for Jan. 6 defendants, going above government sentencing recommendations more often than any judge other than the judge handling Trump’s case, Tanya S. Chutkan.

Besides the fact that it’s obviously unfair, it’s also far from clear that slapping this defendant with a longer prison sentence after he won his appeal is even legal and constitutional. It might violate the double jeopardy clause of the Constitution, according to a magistrate judge:

About five dozen other Jan. 6 defendants were given similar split sentences, but not all appealed them. Some have asked for and received early termination of their probation. A magistrate judge in the courthouse recently ruled that giving a harsher punishment after a sentence has been deemed illegal would be a violation of the constitutional prohibition on double jeopardy.

And so, after easily winning his first appeal against the crazed Judge Lamberth, Little must appeal yet another of his decisions, according to Little’s attorney:

Carpenter said in court he plans a second appeal for Little on that issue.

Here we have an “activist judge” masquerading as a “conservative” who seems to have no self-control over his eating, struggles to stay awake on the job, and even mumbles to himself. And this is the guy trying to tell us what’s really happening in the world? Seriously? It’s an ongoing problem. Many of our so-called “experts” and leaders are just senile buffoons, barely able to manage their own lives, yet they’re at the wheel, steering society. It’s insanity.

Here’s what investigative reporter Julie Kelly shared about this disturbing turn of events:

MUST READ: In a sentencing memo today, Judge Royce Lamberth, a Reagan appointee who cannot get out of his chair without help and falls asleep during court proceedings, has an ABSOLUTE TIRADE about what he claims are falsehoods about Jan 6.

He then proceeds to make up his own reality including a claim that Jan 6 caused “lasting trauma for our entire nation.”

He throws shade at conservative media and Rep. Stefanik for daring to buck regime approved talking points about January 6.

After successfully appealing his split sentence for low level petty offense of “parading”–the appellate court blasted Lamberth and other judges for violating sentencing guidance by ordering jail and probation for parading convictions–James Little will now go BACK to jail bc Lamberth is a petty, retaliatory, resentful old tyrant. (I will explain in a separate post)

These are the lunatics J6ers must deal with:

LAMBERTH: The Court is accustomed to defendants who refuse to accept that they did anything wrong.

But in my thirty-seven years on the bench, I cannot recall a time when such meritless justifications of criminal activity have gone mainstream. I have been dismayed to see distortions and outright falsehoods seep into the public consciousness.

I have been shocked to watch some public figures try to rewrite history, claiming rioters behaved “in an orderly fashion” like ordinary tourists, or martyrizing convicted January 6 defendants as “political prisoners” or even, incredibly, “hostages.”

That is all preposterous. But the Court fears that such destructive, misguided rhetoric could presage further danger to our country.

The Court cannot condone the shameless attempts by Mr. Little or anyone else to misinterpret or misrepresent what happened.

It cannot condone the notion that those who broke the law on January 6 did nothing wrong, or that those duly convicted with all the safeguards of the United States Constitution, including a right to trial by jury in felony cases, are political prisoners or hostages.

So let me set the record straight, based on what I’ve learned presiding over many January 6 prosecutions, hearing from dozens of witnesses, watching hundreds of hours of video footage, and reading thousands of pages of evidence.

On January 6, 2021, a mob of people invaded and occupied the United States Capitol, using force to interrupt the peaceful transfer of power mandated by the Constitution and our republican heritage. This was not a protest that got out of hand. It was a riot; in many respects a coordinated riot, as is clear from cases before me including Hostetter (21-cr-392) and Worrell (21-cr-292).

“Protestors” would have simply shared their views on the election—as did thousands that day who did not approach the Capitol. But those who breached and occupied the Capitol building and grounds halted the counting of the Electoral College votes required by the Twelfth Amendment.

The rioters interfered with a necessary step in the constitutional process, disrupted the lawful transfer of power, and thus jeopardized the American constitutional order. Although the rioters failed in their ultimate goal, their actions nonetheless resulted in the deaths of multiple people, injury to over 140 members of law enforcement, and lasting trauma for our entire nation.

This was not patriotism; it was the antithesis of patriotism. And the rioters achieved this result through force. Not everyone present that day was violent, but violence is what let them into the Capitol. At first, a police line protected the Capitol, but eventually law enforcement was subjected to such force by such a mass of people that the rioters pushed through. Upon entering the Capitol, many rioters vandalized and looted, some hunted for members of Congress.

That brings me to the matter of misdemeanors. Some have questioned whether it is proper for a court to sentence to prison a January 6 defendant convicted of a misdemeanor rather than a felony. The Court wishes to emphasize something: Misdemeanors can be serious crimes.

Meanwhile, in case you’re keeping score, BLM terrorists are now getting hefty payouts for destroying cities and innocent people’s lives and livelihoods.

Slay News:

Seattle has agreed to pay a settlement of $10 million in “compensation” to a group of Black Lives Matter (BLM) rioters who claimed to be protesting the death of George Floyd in 2020.

The Democrat-controlled city announced the taxpayer-funded payout will be handed to 50 rioters who say they were injured by police during the rioting.

According to a press release from the city, Seattle officials have admitted no wrongdoing in the settlement.

Instead, they are citing the strain litigation had placed on it.

In the summer of 2020, the Marxist organization BLM led nationwide riots over the death of Floyd.

Floyd, a career criminal, died of a fentanyl overdose while in the custody of Minneapolis police.

During riots following the death of Floyd, individuals destroyed local communities by vandalizing property, committing arson, and looting businesses.

The violent riots led the police to respond with non-lethal force.

“This settlement resolves the majority of the remaining claims arising out of the 2020 demonstration period and is a big step toward allowing the City to focus on the important work of today while moving forward from events four years ago,” Seattle City Attorney Ann Davison said.

The plaintiffs and the city agreed to a settlement after a series of closed-door meetings, The Seattle Times reported.

The riots in Seattle following Floyd’s death resulted in a significant amount of property damage, bodily injury, and death.

So, it’s okay to burn down cities, injure people, and kill people for three months over the drug death of a convicted career criminal, but it’s not okay to protest a stolen election for three hours? At this point, our country is a total joke. In addition, this case highlights the problem with these “lifetime’ appointments.” We’re being led around by bumbling, cranky old fools who can’t even keep track of the days, yet they’re making major decisions that affect our lives. It makes you wonder: who’s more out of touch? Judges like this, who are clearly unstable, or us, for letting this madness continue daily in our courts, schools, and even the White House.
