Speaks for itself. No idea what her views are, but I’ll look forward to finding out.Thanks for reading Meaning In History! Subscribe for free to receive new posts and support my work.

What are "clearances" and the clearance process?
If we are going to have true Justice reform , the first thing is to get rid of Qualified immunity. It is just cover for evil people who use their position for power, favor and revenge! Also get rid of McConnell ,Romney and Collins.
Good luck with that, but I think you should start with the (accurate) premise that your republic is already lost and would need to be recreated. Hearing nonsense about "preserving the republic" (as if it weren't already gone) only undermines your appeal to people who might potentially agree with you.
good luck, the Republic is in worst state than Reconstruction
this is roughly the Federal government we would have had under Tilden -- no safe harbor for Republicans anywhere in Democrat areas at any level of government -- except they also control nearly every major institution as well, so don't expect another Compromise of 1877
at this point it might better to just give the blues their own country where words mean whatever they like
The idea is to make as much money as you can as a lawyer then go into politics where you can make even way more money. A recipe for corruption.
Well done. We need you. Anyone who has worked in the court system over the past two decades knows the truth of which you speak.
"Our institutions... must be radically overhauled & reformed, & a renewed emphasis on first principles restored."
Can you imagine the forces arrayed against us in this battle? Remember, incumbent lawyers, who benefit greatly from the current arrangement, control the law making process .
I maintain that real reform will not occur without real war
AMEN! Well stated 💪
Thank God, we have some people left who are willing and able to fight for a free country.
How sad is it they my first thought is that she needs protection. Hope she has it.
She wrote several pieces decrying the many miscarriages of justice in the Michael Flynn case.
Absolutely, positively, correct ! Justice by our legal system has become very scarce indeed, especially since the last half of the 20th century. Seems that when justice does occur it is by dumb luck, happenstance or error, never deliberately. After seeing the final results of first a guardianship then the probate of 2 decedents estates involving my mother and her brother, I'll say this, there is no bigger nest of vipers on this planet than the members of the State Bar of Texas. Bad lawyers become judges, legislators, prosecutors and the few good ones are never to be found when you need one and charge crazy high fees. If you happen to have an easy, cut and dried legal malpractice case unless it involves huge 7 figure dollars no attorney will take the case. Never volunteer to be an executor or administrator of an estate, learn from my experience.
Like Techno Fog, Robert Barnes, Margot Cleveland, and a few others, she has been a top drawer to-go for legal analysis for me. I look forward to her defining a new role in the battle.
Odd considering that the Lawyer's Guild has been at the forefront of tearing it all down.
