Of course, it is, and that's all New York Attorney General Letitia James is -- a state-sponsored terrorist who is unleashing politically motivated lawfare against a conservative former president who is really emblematic of anyone in her state (and beyond -- Trump lives in Florida) who runs afoul of the new American Marxist movement gaining momentum all across the country.
She hasn't actually indicted Trump yet, but her male counterpart clone, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has, charging the former president with 34 bogus felonies in regards to an alleged "hush money" payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels in a case that was already examined by the prosecutors in the Southern District of New York and passed over because there's no there there.
But she has gone after a quirky conservative website and it's one of those under-the-radar cases that has not been widely reported but the outcome of which is monumentally important for conservatives.
"A federal court ruling likely to drop this month should provide a good indication as to whether America still has a fully functioning First World justice system," John Kline writes at American Greatness.
"The case, involving an investigation from New York Attorney General Letitia James into the supposed mismanagement of controversial news outlet VDare.com, has received zero media coverage so far, despite it being as crude, brutish, and nakedly political as James’ other lawfare campaigns (notably against former President Trump and the NRA). In fact, it’s arguably worse, as it was clearly designed to dox VDare’s writers and volunteers and bankrupt the tiny outlet out of existence," he continued.
In a recent column discussing James' investigation, Peter Brimelow, founder and editor of VDare, expresses his frustration with the mounting challenges his outlet has faced in promoting their advocacy for "immigration patriotism" over the years.
Those challenges include being blocked by social media platforms and payment processors, potential advertisers facing intimidation campaigns similar to those orchestrated by the Anti-Defamation League, and even encountering reluctance from lawyers and accountants to publicly support the group.
At one point, their online existence was threatened when a lawyer, who now leads the Justice Department's Civil Rights section and espouses black supremacist views, attempted to pressure their domain registrar into delisting their domain.
"Considering Brimelow is a bestselling author, a reputable financial journalist going back decades, and, according to him, someone who has not changed his views on immigration, diversity, and racial issues generally since he was writing about them in National Review years back, the increasing prejudice and character attacks do draw sympathy as well as a considerable amount of head-scratching," Kline notes further.
Despite the numerous challenges he has encountered, Brimelow considers James' ongoing investigation as the most severe threat he, his wife Lydia, and VDare have faced in the 24-year history of the outlet, says Kline, detailing James' attack:
Among the claims James is investigating is that VDare’s New York-registered foundation has been dormant for some years. (Says Brimelow: “We were working through another foundation registered in a different state. This is why we made no further filings: they were not necessary.”) She also alleges the Brimelows are taking advantage of a conference center bought by their nonprofit (a historic house in West Virginia) by living in it rent-free (something that is palpably not true, they assert). James also claims VDare’s board is solely overseen by Brimelow family members (again, not true, they assert, but, in any case, not abnormal). Oddly, she further impugns the fact that the Brimelows failed to specify in VDare filings that they are married.
Finally, James asserts that the conference center was bought by the Brimelows’ foundation but then transferred to a for-profit corporation controlled by Peter’s wife. But according to tax records available on VDare’s site, it’s not Lydia, but the same foundation that actually controls it. As Peter wryly states in his column: “FOR THE RECORD: every step of the [conference center] transaction was carefully monitored by expensive lawyers—because we were well aware that we were susceptible to scrutiny by a malicious and unscrupulous politically motivated regulator.”
"For American justice (as opposed to “their” justice) to prevail, conservatives cannot afford to stay cowed any longer," he added.
