Routine Abuse

 

A kneejerk partisan assistant US Attorney in Houston has filed a HIPAA criminal complaint against the whistleblower MD who revealed that three doctors at Texas Children’s Hospital were still doing “gender-affirming care” (on kids as young as 11!!) after the hospital CEO claimed they were no longer doing that. The patients’ identities and other personal information were redacted in documents shared with the journalist who published the whistleblower’s claims.  (Therefore it is tough to claim a HIPAA violation.)  This was without much doubt a bad faith shot across the bow against an openly non-woke actor within the medical profession who dared to speak out against these horrific practices.

Such a thing is just another day at the office for Biden’s DOJ which has targeted other people solely for being the kind of people likely to read this post.  Abusing prosecutorial powers for partisan reasons is bad enough but specifically going after whistleblowers, silencing content in social media, and making the DOJ and FBI an ideological enforcement arm demands corrective pushback and pain.

None of those who perpetrated the big lie of the “Russigate/dossier” hoax are jobless or in prison.  Nor any of the many who promulgated the egregious and deeply stupid claim that Hunter’s laptop was a Russian plant.  (If you have the stomach for it, this a link to 20-minutes of liars, and incompetents defending that very lie.)  Alvin Bragg, Letitia James, Judge Engeron, Judge Merchan, and Fani Willis are each a public disgrace who has damaged public confidence in the rule of law and openly betrayed their oath of office.  But it does not seem likely that they will ever suffer any professional or other repercussions.

It appears that the case against Dr. Eithan Haim is extraordinarily weak.  But Houston has a long and proud tradition of partisan judges and juries—the plaintiff’s bar (especially those bringing shareholder derivative suits every time a stock price dropped) once would go to great lengths to file cases in Houston because corporate defendants had almost zero chance of winning no matter how dubious the claim.  As we saw in NY and DC, there are now urban jury pools whose members are solely interested in ideological tribal signaling rather than facts or law.

Until some law licenses get shredded and some media figures and others are considered too toxic to hire, there will be no balance and no justice.  If offending federal lawyers and abusive regulators claim civil service protection it may be time for Congress to create a Mattress Tag Removal Enforcement Bureau with offices in Slope County, ND or perhaps the Aleutians and staff it accordingly.

    I think Paxton needs to file conspiracy to abet child abuse charges against the US Attorney in Houston. And jail him as part of the booking process.

    May not stick, but as the saying goes, you beat the rap, but you can’t beat the ride.

    Tyrants and fascists use the medical system to oppress the people.  Nothing changes with Herr Biden.

    I think more recent variations of Superman follow a different motto.

    Among the seriously disturbing things about Biden’s administration the perversion of justice in the DOJ disturbs me the most.

    Yeah, but like Disney movies, nobody reads that stuff anymore. Unless it is the back catalog stuff.

    If the GOP takes the House, Senate, and Presidency next term, I think it is worth looking at making abuse of prosecutorial discretion a federal crime–and one for which qualified immunity is expressly barred as a defense.  

    I was just reading about the prosecutors of Sen. Ted Stevens.  Both were found to have intentionally withheld exculpatory evidence from the defense.  As a consequence, were they fired?  No.  They were suspended.  And here’s the kicker:  They appealed their suspensions and they WON!  They are both still gainfully employed.  One in the same job.  One as a magistrate judge!

    Now that political lawfare is officially a thing, we need more serious consequences for abusing prosecutorial power.

    Yes, but as I mentioned on another thread, it needs to start much lower: actually punishing cops for unlawful arrests, etc.

    There is no good reason for the cops involved in this case – ALL of them – not being in jail.

    State of Texas should give him a medal, pay for his defense costs and costs to sue.

    Old Bathos: Such a thing is just another day at the office for Biden’s DOJ which has targeted other people solely for being the kind of people likely to read this post.

    Which is why I think it is better described as the Department of (in)Justice. Abbreviated as DOiJ

    You would think it would be big news that the U.S. government will be criminally prosecuting a doctor for calling attention to the fact Texas Children’s Hospital is persisting with sex change surgery on children after promising to stop.  

    I searched the news sites of AP, NPR, NYT, WP, CBS, ABC, NBC, and Politico.

    Not a single mention of this doctor or this story.

    Media delenda est.

    They are picking up where Obama left off just with more gusto. And if you think Biden isn’t all for it, you haven’t paid attention since 1972. He is now and always has been not a very nice person. (Not the words I wanted to use)
