    Former President Donald Trump was back in a New York City courtroom on Tuesday morning, hours after winning the Iowa Republican caucuses, for a case concerning defamation against writer E. Jean Carroll.

    A judge in September ruled that Trump is liable for making defamatory remarks about Carroll in 2019, when she first publicly accused him of sexually assaulting her in a Manhattan department store during the mid-1990s. This trial is limited to damages stemming from that ruling; Carroll is seeking at least $10 million.

    Notably, Trump's legal team has asked U.S. District Court Judge Lewis Kaplan if the trial could be delayed so the former president could attend his mother-in-law Amalija Knavs' funeral on Thursday. Judge Kaplan said no, and on Tuesday, Trump's lawyer Alina Habba asked Kaplan if the trial could continue, but to "grant an adjournment" Thursday so Trump could attend the funeral. That, too, was denied.

    CNN reported Tuesday that Kaplan said Trump did not have to be present for the entire trial and could testify if he wanted to on a different day and, therefore, doesn't need to pause the trial on Thursday.

    Trump has been outspoken about Judge Kaplan and Carroll. He posted to his Truth Social account on Tuesday that the judge is biased and has "absolute hatred" for him, and said he never "touched" Carroll.

    "The only right, honest, and lawful thing that Clinton-appointed Judge Lewis Kaplan, who has so far been unable to see clearly because of his absolute hatred of Donald J. Trump (ME!), can do is to end this unAmerican injustice being done to a President of the United States, who was wrongfully accused by a woman he never met, saw, or touched (a photo line does not count!), and knows absolutely nothing about," Trump wrote in a post.

    "I have been considered an A-List celebrity for many decades, so even decades ago, since no one knows which date or dates to refer to, because the accusing woman can't say the day, month, season, year, or decade, it would have been impossible for me to walk into a crowded department store (surrounded by buildings I own), right opposite the cashiers' checkout desk, without being written about on Page Six, and every other outlet at the time," he continued. "Remember, those gossip columnists were, perhaps, even more vicious and obsessed than the Internet of today."

    The president also posted a viral video of Carroll speaking to CNN anchor Anderson Cooper about rape being largely viewed as a "fantasy." Cooper looks visibly uncomfortable during the exchange and cuts to break.

    "Can you believe I have to defend myself against this woman's fake story?" Trump captioned the video.

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?

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

What an unholy concoction: Non Patriot Leftist Reid Hoffman, grotesquely enriched, financing a civil case to defend a woman he did not know, to destroy a man he could never understand ... This woman, who took decades to determine she might have been raped, now seeking an unreasonable and mistaken justice, in this time of: pervasively Corrupt New York City Judges; in this city that elects many of the stupidest politicians, of a sickly nation beset by an epidemic of Blue City Ignorance, all currently riddled with crime; nurtured by a swamp of devastatingly low intellectual compliance to an inestimable evil of incalculable ill will against those truly courageous and competent men and women, who will soon shrink away from any scene of hope, where they might and could have helped.

Is it no wonder that Manhattan is slowly dying of Democratic Socialist demagoguery?

An irreversible New York City is damned to a terrible future fate; such is the corruption of an iniquitous people, who sense NO need to seek redemption from this devil of an eventual doom.
