The Ongoing Mueller Kangaroo Court

Apparently former Trump lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen has postponed his testimony before Congress for a few more weeks.

The latest controversy includes some emails that have surfaced between Cohen and Felix Sater.

Sater is known as “Individual 2” in the case against Cohen in this kangaroo Mueller fishing expedition. Sater, a felon, bar-brawl fighter, and Mafia-tied longtime FBI informant, is yet another sleazy character among the Trump universe.

Given that Sater has been an FBI informant since 1998 and had infiltrated the Trump organization as early as 2003, I would not be surprised to hear that the FBI has been using Sater to go after Trump for many years now. I would also not be surprised to hear Michael Cohen just make things up in his congressional testimony, like according to whatever made-up stories Herr Mueller told him to say.

Those latest controversial emails between Sater and Cohen include Sater allegedly writing, “Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it.” And, “I will get Putin on this program and we will get Donald elected.”

The emails seem to indicate, at least to me, that Sater is writing the things he wrote in order to try to fabricate some sort of connection between Trump and Putin, on behalf of the FBI’s possible entrapment obsession. But, you can believe what you want to believe. Given the sleazy and corrupt characters in all this, I would not be surprised if Sater wrote those things like directed by the FBI for the purpose of entrapment. Call me cynical. (Call me realistic.)

Now, I’ve written this several times now, so, sorry if I sound like a broken record. The reason that government apparatchiks like John Brennan, James Comey, James Clapper, Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller go after successful entrepreneurs in the private sector, like Martha Stewart and Michael Milken, Aaron Swarz, Joseph Nacchio and John Kinnucan, and now Donald Trump, is that bureaucrats are a different breed of human being (if I can use the phrase “human being” to even describe them). They are parasites, generally with no real talents or abilities, except for playing along in an organization or racket whose main purpose is siphoning off the earnings of others, benefiting from the labor of others.

Bureaucrats, a.k.a. apparatchiks, have an anti-capitalistic mentality. Their persecution is of those whose success is based on voluntary action and the voluntary choices of consumers. The bureaucrats’ persecution is motivated by envy and covetousness. It’s the same kind of motivation behind those who want to steal as much as possible from “the rich,” from entrepreneurs. The apparatchiks are those who enrich themselves from such “taxation” i.e. theft and plunder. The government-monopolized “justice” system enables and empowers those parasites to go after peaceful traders who are guilty of made-up non-crimes in which there are no victims.

Ludwig von Mises called the apparatchiks and parasites’ mentality an “anti-capitalistic mentality.” [Also see Mises’s Bureaucracy (.pdf)]

It looks like, given that the FBI has probably been after Trump for decades, this is going to never end, until they see him taken down from the Presidency, by hook or by crook, or throw him in jail based on minor technical “offenses” from his taxes from 10 or 20 years ago.
