This is long overdue, and worthy of support. Most CTH readers are now aware what the Lawfare group is all about. Inside the Lawfare network the far-left political ideologues organize and launch attacks against anything they view as adverse to their interests. The Lawfare network is made up of Obama ideologues and former DOJ officials who manipulate the legal system for their political agenda.
Many, if not most, of the legal aspects connected to attacks against conservatives stem from inside this Lawfare network. They operate inside government and outside in the private sector and compliment each other in their unified agenda. An example was the attack against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by both groups.
During her Senate testimony Kavanaugh accuser, Christine Blasey-Ford ,called the network her “beach friends” connecting the casual relationship they all carry. The Lawfare group operate inside the DOJ, inside the FBI, inside the State Department and inside the institutions of government. They connect ideologically to their allies in the private sector law firms and they share insider information to coordinate their attacks.
The Lawfare group also has a media strategy. If the inside government group needs to advance a narrative to advance their interests they will leak to media (ex. Lisa Page and Peter Strzok leaking to Devlin Barrett, WSJ); and/or leak to their middle-men outside in the private sector who will leak to media on their behalf (ex James Comey to Daniel Richman who then conveys to the New York Times).
Today, former Senior Advisor Stephen Miller announces his launch of a Lawfare group of his own; a counter force against the conniving leftist objectives. Miller is calling his MAGA legal network “America First Legal”.
WASHINGTON— Stephen Miller has come to admire the effectiveness—and aggressiveness—of the legal campaign Democrats and their supporters mounted against the Trump administration’s agenda.
Now, the former senior White House adviser during Donald Trump’s presidency hopes to return fire.
Mr. Miller, an architect of the last administration’s restrictive immigration policies and a leading backer of its socially conservative initiatives, is launching this week a new organization, America First Legal, to challenge Biden administration initiatives at odds with Trump-era priorities.
“Anything the president does that we believe to be illegal is fair game,” he said.
[…] The group, Mr. Miller said, would tap into the expertise of Trump administration lawyers, work with Republican state attorneys general and partner with lawyers around the country who need legal and financial resources for their cases.
The group also has broader ambitions, Mr. Miller said, to eventually get involved in litigation that goes beyond the Biden administration, including to support police officers, go after big tech companies and take on other business interests whose positions run counter to those he embraced in the White House.
The organization of a legal team to combat the political leftists legal team is long overdue. However, as with all things that skirt the DeceptiCon perimeter, the question becomes can Miller stop an organized infiltration by the DeceptiCon crew into this team.
The ‘Trojan Horse’ attack was ultimately what President Trump found to be the most difficult of the issues with combating the agenda against his administration.
“It must be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new ones.” ~ Machiavelli
