    Donald Trump's mother-in-law dying is not a sufficient reason to delay closing arguments in a civil business fraud trial in New York, a judge told the former president's attorney on Wednesday.

    An email chain shows the lawyer, Chris Kise, raising the issue in the middle of a conversation about establishing the grounds by which Trump could deliver his own closing argument on Thursday.

    "I am sad to advise the Court that Mrs. Trump's mother passed away this evening," Kise said, alluding to the death of former first lady Melania Trump's 78-year-old mother Amalija Knavs on Tuesday.

    "Because of the challenges presented by this deeply personal family matter, President Trump has asked that I request the Court postpone the date for closing argument until on or after January 29, 2024, so that he may attend and participate in the Court proceedings," Kise added.

    Judge Arthur Engoron, who is presiding over the case brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James, issued a reply Wednesday morning expressing his condolences but declaring that he would not approve a delay.

    "I'm sure you realize, although you may not realize to what extent, that every appearance of Mr. Trump requires court officers, court clerks, administrators, security details, technical people, etc. to rearrange their schedules and to plan for the day," Engoron said.

    "The administration even had to 'evict' the jury trial currently taking place in Room 300 for tomorrow. Of course, I am also anxious to hear a full day of closing statements as I consider the case as a whole. On balance, going forward makes the most sense. Please tell Mr. Trump that I am sorry," the judge continued.

    Kise replied by saying, "Despite the fact that his Mother-in Law, who he was very close to, passed away late last night, President Trump will be speaking tomorrow."

    However, Kise did not appear to have accepted Engoron's demands that Trump agree to certain limitations such as barring the former president from impugning any of the participants at the trial or delivering a "campaign speech." As indicated in the emails, Trump's attorneys did not meet the repeatedly extended deadline for a response.

    "Not having heard from you by the third extended deadline (noon today), I assume that Mr. Trump will not agree to the reasonable, lawful limits I have imposed as a precondition to giving a closing statement above and beyond those given by his attorneys, and that, therefore, he will not be speaking in court tomorrow," Engoron said.

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.

Considering the current overwhelming obstacles inflicting stress upon America's working class: rampant inflation; energy insecurity; supply chain turmoil; banking failures; foreign policy disasters; government corruption; (DEI) Diversity Equity Inclusion narrative, with WOKE extremes practiced; Climate Change ideology; intractable crime wave in Leftist cities; wide open border by executive design; a permanently discredited Legacy Media; failed or failing education industry, just to name a few of the many: Who should Americans blame?
  Donald J. Trump
  Joseph R. Biden
  Leftist controlled Congress for the last 4 years.
  Bloated, incompetent bureaucracy weaponized and poorly managed
  The electorate, US, for putting these fools in elected office that utterly fail

Not sure, But I can say I have not met a someone yet that identifies as "patriot" that isn't sympathetic to the white power, or Christian Identity movements. Everybody knows those people dumb as rocks. Violent, but dumb as rocks.

Can anyone explain why Democratic Socialists prefer ignorant politicians, like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi, to wise patriot leaders; then also prefer corrupt fools in the judiciary, like Merrick Garland and this Idiot Judge Arthur Engoron, and Trump-hating-activist New York Attorney General Letitia James.
