Aim of Trump Impeachment Is to ‘Chill and Criminalize Speech’ that Opposes Leftist Agenda: Tom Fitton

Tom Fitton, conservative activist and president of Judicial Watch, told The Epoch Times’ “American Thought Leaders” in an interview that he believes the aim of bringing an incitement of insurrection charge against former President Donald Trump is to “chill and criminalize speech” that opposes the agenda of those on the political left.

Calling Trump’s second impeachment trial “anti-constitutional,” Fitton remarked that it amounts to an attempt to silence the voices of those raising issues of concern that run counter to certain political objectives.

“It’s really an attack on civil rights and President Trump, the civil rights of his supporters who share his concerns about the issues he’s raised,” Fitton said.

“And what the left is trying to do is outlaw opposition to its agenda. Number one on the list is concerns about election integrity,” he said. “If you raise concerns about it, you need to be de-platformed, or worse.”

Watch managers and directors tell the intrusion actors where to go and what to do and stage the shooting.

House Democrats making the case for impeachment have argued that Trump set the stage for violence through repeated claims that the election results were fraudulent.

On the second day of the trial, Democrat impeachment managers laid out the case that the Jan. 6 Capitol breach was not caused by a single speech but was rather the outcome of a months-long model of messaging that sowed doubt about the election and fueled anger among Trump voters by reinforcing the view that they had been cheated out of a win and disenfranchised due to fraud.

They also alleged that Trump summoned a mob to Washington, gave the crowd its marching orders, and did nothing to stop the violence as it played out on television.

Trump’s defense lawyers have argued that Trump urged the crowd to demonstrate peacefully, and his Jan. 6 remarks about “fighting” were mere figures of speech no different from the kind that politicians typically make, and anyway allowable under First Amendment protections.

“To claim that the president in any way wished, desired, or encouraged lawless or violent behavior is a preposterous and monstrous lie,” Michael van der Veen, one of Trump’s lawyers, said Friday.

How could any member of Congress possibly vote for impeachment after this evisceration of Dem’s case?

They also accused Democrats of waging a campaign of “hatred” against Trump, of using the impeachment trial to settle political scores, and of hypocrisy. On Friday, Trump’s lawyers played a montage of clips showing Democrats, some of them senators now serving as jurors, also telling supporters to “fight,” seeking to establish a parallel with Trump’s rhetoric.

“This is ordinary political rhetoric that is virtually indistinguishable from the language that has been used by people across the political spectrum for hundreds of years,” Van der Veen said. “Countless politicians have spoken of fighting for our principles.”

David Schoen, one of the attorneys representing Trump, said Friday that “this unprecedented effort is not about Democrats opposing political violence. It is about Democrats trying to disqualify their political opposition. It is Constitutional cancel culture.”

Asked to comment on Schoen’s remarks, Fitton said he believes they accurately reflect the intention behind the impeachment push.

“This is an effort to de-platform the president from our nation’s political life,” he said. “And to try to remove a player from the chess board who would be an effective advocate, a leader against their agenda.”

  1. This is off topic, but very important and an example of what the left is inflicting upon our children:


    Look at what New York schools are teaching kids with and sending home to parents
    The kids are actively being taught to go all the way to white abolition, (to where the arrow points on the chart.) The chart was produced by Barnor Hesse, a black man who got a PhD in government discourse and analysis at Essex university in Britain, and then became a sociology professor at Northwestern University in Louisiana. The company behind pushing this chart (slow factory foundation) centers on climate change, social justice and everything else that is deceptive and communist. The people actually pushing this chart on white kids in American schools are Jews.


  2. Will and William. I really do see your point. My own wonderful wife of 20 years, a naturalized immigrant, strongly sticks to the Democratic line on everything, much to my anger and confusion. But I have to let her be. Trump-Hate is strong among many women in particular. And many gays, and some minorities. It’s a personality thing, not a truth or logic thing. And there are none so blind as those who will not see. The only question I guess is can the Democratic Party be saved? I was a Democratic government community relations commissioner holding townhall meetings for five years appointed by two successive Democratic Mayors, and I protested the war in Viet Nam and Iraq with staunchly patriotic fellow Democrats, so I would dearly like to believe so. I would dearly love to see Democrats and Republicans talk, and get along, because we’re all Americans. But ultimately only the truth will save us, so I guess it matters how much the rank and file Democrats can actually open themselves up to the truth — as most rank and file Republicans seem suddenly to have a head start on them with. We will see how much the cv scamdemic, the election fraud, the Antifa riots, and what will ensue from here on out will maybe wake them up. In any event, we must keep sharing the truth as strongly and widely as we can — if only for our own mental health!

    1. Great post, Joseph…..I’ve always voted as an independent, so there were times I voted for a Democrat. That party under which some worthwhile candidates ran, no longer exists. It’s obviously been usurped by the extreme left. Voting any party line in the current political paradigm is self defeating. It depends upon what influential entity is currently controlling the party. The values for which the party may stand has been replaced by who has the most influence and money to steer it to whatever the need may be at the time. As long as corporations and other governments can control who gets elected, the peoples needs will never be met.

      I trust this will all be moot come the NEW REPUBLIC.

  3. So many are having so much trouble seeing why you have to Decode the Fake News and Satanic Entertainment. Since the January 6th Event turns out to be a very pivotal moment in American History, we should point out some Very Obvious Connections, so that we can all understand that we are fighting with each other over events that are ‘Pre – Designed in Advance’ … Let’s Review … The Event happen on … “January Sixth” = 170 = “Start Rioting” = 170 = “Raid at U.S.A. Capitol” = 170 <<< Isn't that like a 17 ? … "Q" = 17 = "F.B.I." = 17 … From my perspective … I find it quite embarrassing when I make such Easy and Obvious connections like …. "Find Pre-Planned Insurrection Date" = 333 = "Planned for a [One-Six-Twenty One]" = 333 = "One P.M. – Wednesday, January Sixth]" = 333 = "Flood Gates" = 333 … I mean seriously, 'C'mon Man' … 1PM is the exact time the Damn Event Happen … All of it, really is Pathetic … LOOK at this … "GO at One P.M." = 106 <<< Is that January 6th or is that or is that January 7th? Let's reference the Jewish Cypher of the same phrase … "One P.M. – Wednesday, January Sixth" = 333, 3463 <<< 485th Prime Number … "Protest" = 485 = "Operations" = 485 = "Deep Fakes Used" = 485 <<< Were there Deep Fakes used or Not? And LOOK … "Deep Fake" = 333 Satanic … Of Course they were used. What else connects with … "One P.M. – Wednesday, January Sixth" = 333 , 3463 = "Twenty Four Hour Warning Signal" = 333 , 3463 … Pretty Interesting that in the Kabbalah Cypher … "Twenty Four Hour Warning Signal" = 333 K = "Make America Great Again Agenda" = 333 K … I find it all Very Amusing …

  4. Interestingly, one of the “characters” in the Capitol Hill standoff in the film (Tayler Hansen) was the author of this article about a totally phony “celebration” of Ashli Babbit’s life: (Notice the lac of any mention of her husband and also how the article switches tenses and switches to the first person in describing Ashli as “I’m an actor”) Gateway Pundit, usually spot on in its reporting, is tainted by its association with this article and so-called “journalist.

  5. I find it difficult to know how many people out there, have no idea that the Riot at the U.S. Capitol was a Staged False Flag, by the Internal and Invisible Enemy within. Let’s review the numbers, so that we have some actual evidence to work with. The Event was Planned for January 6th … a Day with Date Numerology of … [1 + 6 + 20 + 21] = 48 = “Hoax” <<< Illuminati Card Title … Find a Match for it … ""Hoax" = 48 = "All Fake" = 48 = "Evil" = 48 = "Pre-Planned" = 48 … All Coincidences, of course, so we move forward … 48 is the Date Numerology … Let's Write it Out … "Forty Eight" = 137 = "Government" = 137 = "Stage Riots" = 137 = "M.P. will Deny" = 137 = "Go on [One – Six]" = 137 = "Washington D.C." = 137 = "National Guard" = 137 = "No Body Shot" = 137 = "Dirty Trick" = 137 = "Mind Control" = 137 = "Coordination" = 137 = "C.N.N. Code Words" = 137 <<< 33rd Prime Number … "Believe" = 33 = "D.N.C" = 33 K = "Op" = 33 K … These are all just Coincidences, of Course … So we Press On … It looks to me that the Enemy, stopped the House Floor Vote with the Maneuver. Let's see if they signaled it … "Stop the Vote" = 48 <<< Weird, that is the Date Numerology of January 6th, the same day of the Riot … Its All Coincidence … There is so much Coincidence happening, the whole narrative needs to be change to 'Coincidence Theory' … Keep Pressing Forward … The January 6th Date could be written 1-6-21 or 1621, we connect … "Citizen Revolt" = 1621 <<< Wow, a Citizen Revolt actually happen, kinda Flimsy if you ask me … Don't you think ?

  6. Pingback: Impeachment Donalda Trumpa. Senat USA w sobotę odrzucił w głosowaniu zarzuty wobec byłego prezydenta. To sukces Trumpa
  7. To SAVE AMERICA, Biden and DemonicRATS MUST BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE – BY ANY MEANS! ALL Americans MUST get involved and support that effort. 4 years of DemonicRATS rule means America’s DEATH! The STOLEN Election CANNOT STAND!

    1. Americans are facing “1984” and SLAVERY! Every now and then, “the tree of Liberty must be watered with the blood of patriots and tyrants”. NOW is such a time! “Live FREE – or die”.

  8. Very Interesting there is a Phrase Quotation in the Story … Let’s Decode It! … “Chill and Criminalize Speech” = 238 = “Guerrilla Insurgency” = 238 = “Planted Disinformation” = 238 = “Next Date Numerology” = 238 = “Eleven Date Numerology” = 238 = “Hidden Message” = 238 R … I wonder which Dates Have 11 Date Numerology … Very Interesting, In the Jewish Cypher, we connect … “Eleven” = 775 = “CovFeFe” = 775 = “Love” = 775.

    1. Humans are pattern discerners. It makes us human. Your patterns may be entertaining and perhaps even meaningful in your own abstract intellectual space. They are inflected by the patterns you want to see.

      I’m sure this system could be used to discern completely different patterns than you do, in fact, I bet the opposite interpretation could be made of the same material. Perhaps Turley could correlate to some more pertinent adjective than spooky. Have you considered that your referential biases may impact your equations?

      And at the end of it all, after your many posts, you have not been able to articulate one concrete use for your computations. “Oh, but it’s a prime number!” Yes. How do we use this information?

      In the end, gematria is just a puzzle to occupy the mind. Interesting in a ‘hmm’ kind of way, but it has not been demonstrated to be anything we can use to understand the issues pursued at this blog.

      1. Toni … You ask … ‘How do we use this information?’ … The M.S.M. job is to [Hive Mind] and [Herd] You. Let’s take Cable T.V. News … they are all the same, so it doesn’t matter … Let’s use C.N.N. … Watch the news, and they will give you Code Words in Quotation. You will notice the Numbers that represent the “Code Words” are repeated over the News Cycle … about 1 Week to 2 Weeks … Decoding these messages will explain everything that is actually happening, what is a Lie, and whats on the Agenda in the near Future. When referencing a Story that is ‘Written,’ an online story for example, Decoding the Time, Date, and Author of the Story are signals used to forecast the Next Event or Next Message. In the body of the Story, the Numbers and Names are Also used to explain what is Manufactured and what the Goal is. If Gematria was of No Importance, the Military would not have been wasting time teaching Intelligence Soldiers this Knowledge. Time to Wake Up Toni … Don’t worry I have Fresh Coffee ready to Go!

      2. Toni — I totally agree. In fact, I have bee n a fulltime professional numerologist/astrologer/life consultant for 47 years and over 50,000 readings. While numerology can be surprisingly and amazingly helpful in personality analysis, the use of “occult symbolic numbers” to justify political observations tends to be vague, self-serving, and ultimately ridiculous in the extreme. It actually has a negative impact on what we are trying to do; for it not only takes up space, it tends to give all us activists a “tinfoil hat image.” As you say, these numbers could be used to justify anything. I really wish people would not bother us with this distracting, time-wasting stuff. Jake, please save it for personal consultations, not political generalities.

      3. Precisely. Thank you, Joseph. It leads no where and despite it’s intrigue, it’s merely a distraction.

      4. Nah … You are entitled to your opinion. I disagree … Hey! … Since you brought up Tin foil Hats and Politics. I find it really interesting that in the Steve Jackson Illuminati Card Game, there is a Card Titled … “Republicans” = 120 = “Represent” = 120 = “Reserve Bank” = 120 = “Illuminati” = 120 = “In Control” = 120 = “Communism” = 120 = “Wear Foil Hat” = 120 K = “D.O.D. Code” = 120 J <<< Isn't like 12 ? Maybe that's why everybody keeps seeing 'Fuck 12' spray painted everywhere ? … Never mind that I Giggle everytime I Gematria … "Secret Agenda" = 102 = "Al Qaeda" = 102 = "Attack Codes" = 102 = "Fuck You" = 102 <<< Hey, that's just like a 12? … Not to mention that the M.S.M. to this day advertises that the attack lasted 102 Minutes … They even made a Movie about to Mock everybody a little bit more … Tell Us More Joseph …

  9. Our cherished Constitutional Republic was founded on the impartial rule of law, the indispensable safeguard for our liberties, our rights and our freedoms.

    It is a sad commentary on our times that the unruly nihilistic Democrat party in America is given a free pass to denigrate the rule of law, defame law enforcement, cheer mobs, excuse rioters, and transform justice into a tool of political vengeance, and persecute, blacklist, cancel and suppress all people and viewpoints with whom or which they disagree. The right of Americans to peacefully and honorably debate the issues of the day without malice is paramount.

    The 2nd bogus impeachment of the most honorable President Trump has been yet another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our country. No president has ever gone through such disgraceful disrespect; and it continues because the Stalinistic Democrats cannot accept the fact that close to 75 million citizens legally voted for one of America’s greatest presidents of all time. Moreover, this was the highest number legitimate votes ever recorded for a sitting, peace loving president.

    These millions of legal and legitimate voters are decent, hardworking, law-abiding, God-and-Country loving citizens who have bravely supported the important principles of constitutional government during in these times of Democrat inspired racism, election fraud, along with despotic authoritarianism.

    1. Agree with every word….but I DO think it’s more likely the REAL TOTAL of trump supporters is well over 100 million….although it’s likely we will never know.

    2. GRB and all other activist heroes — With the greatest respect, I feel it’s very important NOT to denigrate all Democrats, the vast majority of whom are idealistic people who believe in racial equality, non-violence, and non-economic exploitation. Just as the vast majority of Republicans nowadays. The problem is their leadership; and that the Soros/Rothschilds cabal has intentionally corrupted both Dems and Repubs with unlimited bribery and blackmail at the top, along with brainwashing through popular media. Both Dems and Repubs corporate leadership, due to this bribery and blackmail through our very own money which the NWO bankers print and administer (this must stop!), is composed of morally bankrupt, even Satanic, manipulative, monstrous people who desperately seek wealth, power, and to hide their crimes form the public. IMHO, to combat this problem, we must trace the corruption in our country beyond labels of “Democrat” and “Republican” to the New World Order villains mentioned above, along with their individual and corporate lackeys in our government, military, media, business, and intelligence communities who dominate us all. Then we must act to remove them from power, collectively, wisely, and consistently. Otherwise we will spend our time fighting each other as they pull the puppet strings to destroy us all.

      1. As a registered Democrat with many Democrat friends and family, I sorta agree with you but not entirely. True, both parties were taken over by the Bilderberger elites, as have most major parties in Western Europe. But, even a lot of the rank-and-file Democrats now suffer from Anti-Trump Derangement Syndrome and seem willing to sacrifice free speech and many of our most cherished American traditions in promoting their agenda. I have lost many friends and family for merely speaking the truth and requesting that they themselves investigate the truth. And, the denial of the massive electoral fraud in this country by most Democrats–in the face of overwhelming evidence–is extremely disconcerting. People of like Mike Palacek–coming as I do from the left-of-center–can tell you how extremely rude huge swaths of rank-and-file Democrats have become when it comes to talking political truths.

      2. Joseph, I take a hard core approach when it comes to those Dems or Republicans going along to get along.
        If for whatever reason, they have been compromised, they must put their personal security second to the welfare of this country and We the People. If not, they do not belong in politics representing us. I see no gray area here.

    3. We recently witnessed vote fraud on an industrial scale never seen before. Its an ugly stain on the US that has been allowed to remain.
      I agree with GRB….well stated.
      A criminal fraud currently haunts the Oval Office. A four mile razor wire wall surrounds Capitol Hill.
