In March of 1857, the United States Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, declared that all blacks -- slaves as well as free -- were not and could never become citizens of the United States. The court also declared the 1820 Missouri Compromise unconstitutional,
thus permiting slavery in all of the country's territories.

The case before the court was that of Dred Scott v. Sanford. Dred Scott, a slave who had lived in the free state of Illinois and the free territory of Wisconsin before moving back to the slave state of Missouri,
had appealed to the Supreme Court in hopes of being granted his freedom.

Taney -- a staunch supporter of slavery and intent on protecting southerners from northern aggression -- wrote in the Court's majority opinion that,

"Considering the scanty&sketchy evidence available on record, I do not find any palpable reasons to breach the general rule of Bail against a 22 years old young lady, with absolutely blemish-free criminal antecedents..", says ASJ Dharmender Rana while giving bail to #DishaRavi. Image
Judge Rana: In my considered opinion creation of a WhatsApp group or being editor of an innocuous Toolkit is not an offence.

#Sedition Image
ASJ Rana: Further, since the link with the said toolkit or PJF has not been found to be objectionable, mere deletion of the WhatsApp chat to destroy the evidence linking her with
the toolkit and PJF also becomes meaningless.

CJI SA Bobde led bench to shortly hear a plea challenging the constitutionality of #sedition law as under Section 124-A of IPC. Plea states that a colonial provision like section 124A should not be permitted to continue in a democratic republic
Senior Adv Anoop George Chaudhari: This law was for the subjects under British rule

CJI: what is the cause of action? There is no case pending against you for sedition. In Kusum case we have laid down unless there us cause of action you cannot simply challenge a law
Chaudhari: Even if the law remains, please issue directions that the Constitution bench judgment is followed

CJI: We don't have a cause of action before us

Chaudhari: This is a question of public interest. All states can be made a party

Congresswoman @ayannapressley does not mince words. She speaks truth to power. A white supremacist mob waving trump, maga, blue lives matter and confederate flags in the US Capitol were incited and encouraged by trump.
It was all based on a lie about a fraudulent election and a desire to invalidate millions of Black votes. There must be accountability for all who were responsible. The Impeachment will likely not result in a conviction.
This is due to the lack of principles and morality in the @GOP specifically the @SenateGOP . They are feckless and spineless. #neverforget #sedition #trumptreason #whitesupremacy #republicanparty There is no “turning the page” with out accountability.

I hate to break this to you, your breadstick. But the same people who openly lying about Putin stealing the election for Trump don’t get to demand jack shit from those of us who saw an obvious stolen election handed to Joe Biden. H/T @LibertyJen

2/ reconciliation doesn’t start with pretending Buyden’s stolen election wasn’t stolen.

Reconciliation starts with the left apologizing for lying about “trump Russia collusion” and slandering the president as a Russian agent. KNOWING the entire time it was never true.
3/next you can apologize for Adam Schiff (and others from the #Sedition party) Who lied openly to the American people for three years, telling them that personally seen the evidence that Trump was a Russian agent, and that he was headed for prison once the evidence came out.

#SeditionHunters I'm going to post a long thread of virtually unseen videos of the #CapitolRiots Most of these aren't great and their only value is a potential glimpse of a wanted person. Some offer streams of live streams that may be taken down. Others have good close-ups.
Stream of streams. Lots of good face shots here from Jan 5.
This one maybe has Therese Duke, but it's from the 5th and she seems to already have a bloody face then. Lots of good close-ups. #SeditionHunters

Hi all, if you are interested in social justice and the seemingly unending onslaught of events seems to do your head in. Here are some resources, hashtags and processes I've found helpful in keeping track of what is happening around us.
1. @Article14live has tracked #sedition cases between 2010-2010 in #India. @kunalpurohit provides an in-depth overview of the use of colonial laws to suppress dissent and active requests for rights in the country. #memoryproject
2. The #freespeechcollective has tracked arrests and detentions of #journalists in India between 2010-20. @geetaseshu's work has demonstrated that 40% of these took place in 2020. #memoryproject

🚨SEDITION: The rally pre­ceding the #TrumpInsurrection was arranged and funded by a small group, in­clud­ing InfoWars’ Alex Jones and major Trump donor/@Publix heiress, Julie Jenk­ins Fan­celli—who donated $300,000 to bankroll the rally.🤬

Jones per­son­ally pledged >$50,000 in seed money for the #sedition rally in ex­change for a “top speak­ing slot of his choice.”

Jones also helped arrange for Fan­celli to give ~$300,000—via a top Trump campaign fundrais­er—that bankrolled the lion’s share of the $500,000 rally.
Fan­celli do­nated >$980,000 in the 2020 elec­tion cy­cle to a joint ac­count for the Trump cam­paign and @GOP.

Much worse, she bankrolled the #Sedition rally to protest the election results that kicked off the violent coup attempt at the Capitol.🤬

@nytimes 1. @SenWarren @EdMarkey #Murdoch is a #NaturalizedCitizen. He doesn't give a damn about our country! He's only ever cared about increasing his #Wealth. He & @FoxNews sow #Hate & #Division! I honor the #NaturalizationOathOfAllegiance I took in 1968 when I was 14 yrs old.
@nytimes @SenWarren @EdMarkey @FoxNews If I broke my oath as a #USNaturalizedCitizen, I suspect that I would be stripped of my citizenship & deported! The #Murdochs et al are promoting #Sedition & #Insurrection! Strip the #Murdochs of their #NaturalizedCitizenship & #DeportTheMurdochs! #NoOneIsAboveTheLaw!
@nytimes @SenWarren @EdMarkey @FoxNews 3. Per @nytimes: #Murdoch is in the UK "weathering the pandemic." I was told that I would forfeit my citizenship if I lived out of the US for an extended period. Yet he doesn't live here year round & promotes #Sedition & #Insurrection but stays a US citizen. #NoOneIsAboveTheLaw

🚨SEDITION: after top DOJ officials threatened to quit in protest of Trump’s plot to oust Acting AG Rosen, Trump pushed @TheJusticeDept to ask the SCOTUS to invalidate @POTUS Biden’s victory.

Yet another attempt by Trump to overturn the election.🤬…
Trump pressured DOJ to file a baseless lawsuit in SCOTUS—top DOJ officials, including Bill Barr, refused.

Trump also plotted with Jeffrey Clark—acting head of DOJ’s civil division—to replace Acting AG Barr and use DOJ’s power to push #Georgia to overturn the election results.🤬
Former Trump admin official: “He wanted us to sue 1 or more of the states di­rectly in the SCOTUS. The pres­sure got re­ally intense” after SCOTUS dismissed #Texas’ lawsuit. Trump’s lawyer drafted a brief Trump wanted DOJ to file, but of­fi­cials refused.💥

🚨SEDITION: Trump plotted with Jeffrey Clark—acting head of DOJ’s civil division—to oust & replace Acting AG Rosen & wield DOJ’s power to force #Georgia lawmakers to overturn its election results.

DOJ department heads then said they’d QUIT in protest.…
Their resignation pact helped persuade Trump to keep AG Rosen—calculating that a furor over mass resignations at the top of DOJ would eclipse attention on his baseless accusations of voter “fraud.”


😱Trump’s decision not to oust Rosen came only after Rosen and Clark made competing cases to Trump in a bizarre WH meeting that 2 officials compared with an episode of Trump’s reality show “The Apprentice.”

This is the definition of a #SeditiousConspiracy.

🔥Dozens of influential @GOP in DC—including former top Trump administration officials—have been quietly lobbying GOP members of Congress to impeach and #ConvictTrump.

Efforts started with the @HouseGOP, but now are focused on Minority @LeaderMcConnell.…
“Mitch said to me he wants Trump gone," per 1 @HouseGOP.

The GOP whisper campaign is based on a shared belief that a successful conviction is critical for the future of the GOP, described as a “reckoning.”

The GOP had better face a “reckoning,” after Trump’s #sedition.🤬
The lobbying effort has included behind-the-scenes pressure by GOP donors—#Sedition is bad for business and political fundraising.🤷‍♀️

PLUS calls from former top Trump WH officials and a set of talking points **circulating among Republicans arguing FOR Trump's impeachment**.😎

Maggie Mulvaney is listed on the 1/6/21 rally permit as VIP lead. The permit states some participants might go to the Capitol “to hear results of Congressional certification.” Many marched to the Capitol and were part of the insurrection. #MAGATerrorism…

🚨Members of Trump’s failed campaign played key roles in orchestrating the Washington rally that incited the deadly Capitol assault.

At least 6 were paid THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS just weeks prior to the #TrumpInsurrection.


A pro-Trump nonprofit group— Women for America First—hosted the 1/6 “Save America Rally,” but the public gathering permit lists >6 people as staff who were paid by Trump’s campaign. Other staff scheduled to be “on site” during the rally have close ties to the WH.🤬

📌At least 1 was working for the Trump campaign THIS MONTH. Megan Powers was listed as 1 of 2 operations managers for the 1/6 rally—her LinkedIn profile says she was the Trump campaign’s director of operations into January 2021.

🚨@WSJ re­view of thou­sands of Proud Boys’ posts on Par­ler, Telegram & Gab—including those now-deleted—show the group re­peat­edly in­vok­ing Trump’s rhetoric prior to the Capitol attack and that they **viewed Trump’s mes­sages as a call to action**.🤬…
‼️Just 3 days before their attack on the Capitol, Enrique Tarrio—leader of the Proud Boys—posted on Telegram: “What if we invade it?”

The first reply read: “January 6th is D day in America.”

Premeditation of their #SeditiousConspiracy to overthrow our government.🤬

In December, after Trump tweeted “be there, will be wild,” about the 1/6 rally, the Long Island chapter of the Proud Boys posted that Trump supporters have been “waiting for the green light from the President.”

“Everyone who said ‘Mr. President, just say when?’ He just did.”💥

🚨🚨BREAKING: #MyPillow CEO Michael Lindell’s notes for his meeting with Trump show that he lobbied to install Trump loyalists to gin up “evidence” of electoral “fraud” and impose #MartialLaw to keep Trump in power.

The #TrumpCoupAttempt continues.🤬…
#InsurrectionAct now as a result of the assault on the...#MartialLaw if necessary upon the first hint of any”

Lindell appears to be arguing that, in response to the violence at the Capitol, Trump should invoke the #InsurrectionAct, which would allow him to impose #MartialLaw.🤬
“Move Kash Patel to @CIA Acting.”

Kash Patel—former staffer to @DevinNunes—was key in Nunes’s efforts to undercut the #TrumpRussia investigation.

As CIA Director, he could declassify documents related to the #TrumpRussia🇷🇺probe that some #traitors want released.🤬

😱From a DC police officer: “We were battling 15,000 people. It looked like a medieval battle scene.”

So many more people could have been murdered during the #TrumpInsurrection....…
Trump’s #Seditionists beat officers with metal pipes and a pole with an American flag attached, and used stun guns. Officer Fanone suffered a mild heart attack and drifted in and out of consciousness.

Fanone said he heard rioters shout. “Kill him with his own gun!”🤬
Here’s video of Trump’s violent #Seditionists beating an officer with a pole with an American flag.🤬

‼️ Donovan Crowl—a 50 yo former @USMC who served as a helicopter mechanic—was among the uniformed #seditionists. While storming the Capitol, he wore a combat helmet, ballistic goggles, and a tactical vest with a handheld radio.

A patch on Crowl’s sleeve identified him as a member of the Oath Keepers, a far-right anti-government group identified as one of the largest and most dangerous extremist groups in the country that's been involved in several armed standoffs with law enforcement in recent years.🤬
Mary McCord, a former acting assistant AG for national security in DOJ, said that while “these types of modern unlawful militias have been around for decades, ever since Ruby Ridge and Waco,” Trump’s incitement had encouraged their #insurrection.🤬

🚨#Seditionist Audrey Ann Southard—#Florida singer & vocal coach—used her soprano at the #TrumpInsurrection to scream at cops that they should “tell f**king Pelosi we’re coming for her! F**king traitorous c**ts, we’re coming! We’re coming for all of you!”…
‼️Just prior to storming the Capitol, #Seditionist Southard posted a now-deleted live video to Facebook: “We’re standing in front of the Capitol building, ready to take it. It’s gonna be fun.”

Clear premeditation. ARREST HER NOW.🤬

@lauferlaw #TrumpInsurrection #Sedition
While pushing a wooden pole with an American flag against an officer’s torso, Southard yelled: “Bulls**t! They’re going to feel us!We’re pushing through. Boys, ready to go again?” she shouted before yelling at an officer, “last breath or last bullet, what’s it going to be?”🤬

‼️Seditionist on a police motorcycle is retired @USNavy SEAL Adam Newbold—who boasted on Facebook that he was “proud” about "breaching the Capitol" in the #TrumpCoupAttempt and hoped to ignite a "positive revolution."

He now faces questions from the FBI.…
🚨Newbold—who served 24 years in the Navy and now trains civilians and police in tactical shooting—said he wanted to make lawmakers "think twice about what they're doing" and to be left "shaking in their shoes."🤬

h/t @drc573 #TrumpInsurrection #Sedition…
"There are stories to tell from generations upon generations, um, that hopefully, uh....that hopefully it pans out to be a positive revolution. HOOYAH!"

WRONG. There’s nothing “positive” about trying to overthrow our government.🤬

‼️A day before the #TrumpCoupAttempt, an @FBI office in #VA issued an explicit internal warning that extremists were preparing to travel to DC to commit violence and “war.”


#GOPSedition #TrumpTraitor…
This FBI warning *contradicts* a senior official’s declaration that the FBI had no intelligence indicating anyone at last week’s pro-Trump protest planned to do harm.

#coverup #TrumpInsurrection #GOPSedition

😱An FBI report approved for release the day before the #TrumpInsurrection painted a dire portrait of dangerous plans, including individuals *sharing a map of the complex’s tunnels* and possible rally points for conspirators to meet in KY, PA, MA and SC and head in groups to DC.
