Too Bad: Trump Backs Down on Public Accusations of Judicial Bias
By Daily Bell Staff - June 09, 2016

Under fire from Republicans, Trump says he’ll stop talking about judge … Bowing to pressure from fellow Republicans, Donald Trump said on Tuesday he would no longer talk about a Mexican-American judge after U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan denounced the presidential candidate’s criticism of the jurist as textbook racism. -Reuters

Trump’s recent decision not to pursue his charges of bias against the judge presiding over his fraud case is in line with our predictions regarding his candidacy.

We believe that at the largest level, the Trump candidacy is being manipulated to bring the North American Union back into play.

We predicted, for instance, that Trump’s anti-Mexican rhetoric would give way to various compromises that would tend to move a potential union forward.

You can see our more recent article HERE.

And now, on this particular issue, this is just what’s happened. Trump made some fairly specific charges about the judge presiding over his fraud case, U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel.

While he has not necessarily recanted those statements –  specifically that the judge was biased because he was Mexican and Trump wants to build a wall separating Mexico from the US – Trump is not going to publicly pursue the matter.

Apparently, Trump’s new position has been generated  by intense public criticism from Republican officials who branded his remarks as racist.

More:

With greater scrutiny of Trump now that he is set to formally win the Republican presidential nomination at the party’s July convention in Cleveland, there are concerns about the party’s ability to maintain control of the House of Representatives and Senate.

“Trump’s continuing missteps, punctuated by his outrageous and indefensible comments about Judge Curiel, make that goal much more difficult to achieve,” said Lanhee Chen, a senior adviser to former presidential candidate Marco Rubio and a senior fellow at the conservative Hoover Institution.

Trump’s sudden lower-key approach was evident in a recent speech he gave to supporters at the golf club he owns in suburban New York.

Breaking with his usual practice of speaking off the cuff, Trump read from a teleprompter and left without taking questions from reporters.

In fact, Trump’s remarks were not racist. “Mexican” is a nationality not a race. Even “Hispanic” is not a race but a disparate culture.

Trump’s larger point was a fair one.  The law firm bringing the action against Trump has donated some $700,000 to Hillary Clinton and is on record as wanting the fraud trial to proceed in November – in the middle of the political season.

Additionally, the judge presiding over the case belongs to the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association, that claims to represent Hispanics including illegal aliens.

Trump has been accused of confusing the Lawyer’s Association with a more radical “La Raza” group. But in fact, there do seem to be some informal associations between the two groups.

Here, from the New American:

U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding over a class-action suit against Trump University, has long been associated with the San Diego La Raza Lawyers’ Association [which is a member of] the La Raza Lawyers of California.

Though the California organization is not officially affiliated with National Council of La Raza (NCLR), which has a long history of radicalism and which has organized protests at Trump rallies, an indication that the California group does regard NCLR favorably is indicated by the fact that it has a link to NCLR on its webpage.

The NCLR is a truly radical group that wants to carve out a large chunk of the Western US including California to either build an independent state or to expand Mexico itself.

Meanwhile, the lawyers’ association has given out academic scholarships to youngsters who are evidently “illegal” – not living in the US with the requisite documents.

The  judge is also a member of the Hispanic National Bar Association, which has issued a public call to boycott businesses with which Trump is affiliated.

Curiel is a Democratic appointed of the Obama administration  that is very obviously anti-Trump and pro-Hillary. And he has already acted in ways that seem biased against Trump.

For instance, a leading plaintiff, Tarla Makaeff, attended Trump U ’s three-day “Fast Track to Foreclosure Workshop” in 2008, and even recorded a video praising the Trump program.

When the law firm found out, they appealed to the judge to remove Makaeff from the case. The judge granted the request but instead of throwing out the case, he allowed it to continue.

To summarize, the judge is a Democratic member of a group that gives out scholarships to Hispanic illegal aliens.  He is also a member of an association that has called for a boycott of Trump businesses.

And he has already made questionable decisions regarding the case that have disadvantaged Trump.

Trump seems right about the judge’s biases. In fact, Trump could have gone a lot farther.

The US judicial system, both civilly and criminally, is intensely corrupt.

Prisoners, for instance, are considered slaves and treated as such. US incarceration includes 25 percent of all prisoners in the world.

The civil branch of American justice is very simply a racket for lawyers.

Unfortunately, it is difficult to have an honest discussion about what’s going on in the US because those who participate in the discussion are politicians. Politicians are afraid of offending constituencies that might then vote against them.

One of Trump’s refreshing qualities was that he didn’t seem frightened about speaking plainly.

If he becomes too cautious, he may reduce the attractiveness of his candidacy.

Conclusion: Trump’s self-censorship is in line with our larger perception. As stated, we believe that the polarization that Trump is creating between Mexico and the US is going to give way to “compromise” that will actually advance a union between the two countries. Time will tell.

    This is a really good story. Thank you for doing it.

    Trump ‘appears’ to be caving to PC pressure. That’s okay, the PC bigots will feel better and maybe leave him alone for awhile. No harm done.

    More importantly, Judge Curiel has listened and heard Trump’s message. That is, ‘if you continue to treat me unfairly in the Trump U. litigation, I will expose you for what you really are and that could be reason to end your career on the bench’. Trump’s mission is complete, if the judge is smart.

    Trump is an exceptionally intelligent person who ALWAYS knows what he’s doing. I’m not worried about him being bent the wrong way. NAU will be phased out if Trump becomes our next President.

    By the way, think of all the problems that could be solved if we were to simply give southern California to Mexico. `;-)

    • Thanks.

      It will just create more problems. If La Raza had their way, they would reclaim all of Cali, NM, AZ, NV, and CO. All non-Razans would then flee and take their money, businesses, and jobs with them…resulting in essentially “more Mexico”, the same sh!thole the illegals wanted to escape from to begin with. And now we’ll have to build a wall for real, but it will have to be 3 times longer and 5 times more expensive. Nothing good will come of this.

        They’ll prob “take it over” anyway, thru their descendants who will be more numerous than the white inhabitants. Frankly, they can have this liberal hell hole. By the time it happens, the place will be totally wrecked anyway.

    I know the DB is pretty focused on the progress of a “North American Union” and it may happen (though I doubt it) but not because Trump will enable it.

    Time will indeed tell, but I suspect Trump backed off on his criticisms of the judge – if he actually has – since he came to realize that a lot of the Republican politicians weren’t getting it, or are looking for excuses to defeat him.

    I still say that the Republican establishment doesn’t want Trump to win the Presidency – that they really would prefer Clinton – but it is also possible that they want Trump but really are as stupid as they usually seem. For example, as soon as Trump said what he did they should have first waited for the Democrats’ reaction. Chances are the Dems would have balked and that would have been their opportunity to use their own beliefs against them: Acknowledge that this COULD BE “another” case in which a judge with preconceived biases should recuse himself lest even the appearance of justice be corrupted.

    Trump voters understood exactly what Trump was saying and agreed with
    him. Bernie voters probably do too. It was common sense and
    self-evident. Everybody knows how often “minority” defendants and plaintiffs accuse “white” judges and juries of preconceived biases and racism. This was just the same script read backwards. Everyone who has had experience with court trials knows that the judge you get can make all the difference. Not to mention, the “all important” issue of Supreme Court judicial appointments: The individual’s beliefs are considered all-important regarding their likely legal and Constitutional judgements, regardless of them being “AMERICAN.”

    Unfortunately, that’s not what they did. Instead – as usual – they sounded as stupid and self-righteous as ever, and accused Trump of being blind to the fact that the judge was “American”, “and born in Indiana for Christ’s sake!” The fact that he had professional associations with groups diametrically opposed to Trump’s candidacy was ignored and it was THEY who were too blinded to recognize it. Furthermore, if the judge were such an upstanding, fair-minded, “American” Federal judge as the Republicans claimed then he should have recused himself at the outset, knowing that he was going to be presiding over a case involving one of the most controversial Presidential candidates in history, and one who openly opposes exactly what the judge personally supports.

    Trump probably realized he was dealing with either a-holes or morons or both, and so he may have stopped pushing it but I highly doubt he’s going to forget this. The more he learns about who’s who and how deep the pit is the less likely he’ll be fooled in the future. Fortunately, his voters understand the whole thing and this has probably garnered some “Bernie voters” too as they see how the status quo operates. Either it really is that corrupt or that stupid, or both.

    Excellent analysis DB, and so true!

    Trump is now playing politics. He probably has not changed his mind about the good judge, but I would bet Trump may say something about the judge down the road. It is California, its been a lost cause for at least 25 years.

    Trump says he makes deals, so, lets make a deal.

    These republican politicians have sold their souls to political correctness, which has lead to biased judges like Curiel.

    I pity the political class if the people find out for a fact that the ballet box has been corrupted and vote counting is a fraud, and they are in office illegitimately. I pity the poor fools, what will become of them!!!

  • mike

    Trump’s co-opted. Kissinger already met with him. Watch what happens if Trump doesn’t obey. K will sit down with him right before his swearing in and The Donald will do everything Henry the K tells him. Just like Nixon. No cfr/trilaterialists in my administration. Until K talked to him the night before his inauguration. He retained all the globalists from the Johnson administration.

  • Deplorable Donna

    He didn’t cave or recant, he just decided to quit defending himself. Hopefully, his attorneys will get the judge removed legally which will prove him right again.

    He has to play the game somewhat to just get elected. The globalists, dems and MSM are going to hammer him over every little thing for the next 5 months and he has to pick his battles and annihilate hiLIARy. MSM totally ignored all these details on the judge and just kept screaming “racist” so he wasn’t getting anywhere. Once he is in power, he can tell them all to go get bent and stick to his guns. Hopefully, losers like Ryan and McCain will be primaried by then also.

  • Eliseo

    Either way, Trump won. How? Now if he loses the court case it will be proof that the judge is completely bias against him; if he wins he is vindicated with zero fault. Remember, he is very intelligent and a deal maker!
    It is not that complicated.
    When he visited Kissinger I think Trump told him to stay out of his way!

  • ConPatriot1234

    The fact that we have racist judges from “La Raza” (The Race) groups like this on the bench speaks volumes. The regime and its kangaroo courts are out of control.

  • bouf

    Racket for lawyers…. It sure is. I asked my criminal defense attorney, who thankfully I have never had to call but always have his card with me, and who I have coffee with on Sundays from time to time, what the impact of driver-less cars and suddenly no DUI cases would have on his business. Even I was stunned at the number: he’d lose 85% of his business. I asked him if that was pretty standard across the criminal defense people he knows. He said yes. Turns out there aren’t enough people robbing and shooting each other to keep him in work.

  • hashtag_agitated

    So now Trump’s rhetoric and candidacy is a false flag which will in fact result in the exact opposite of his agenda? Seems like a stretch. The paranoia runs strong in this one.

    In fact possibly the Daily Bell is a false flag web site implemented by our hostile elites. While the site couches its message in terms of subverting the powers that be and pointing to how the internet and information age are upending the current paradigm, in fact IT”S A RUSE! Actually the Daily Bell is working for our elites to institute a NEW WORLD ORDER! Don’t you guys see?!

    • Praetor

      No!!!

    • Our purpose is to suggest and define elite dominant social themes. You may find some of our suggestions unrealistic. We would argue that almost nothing is “out of bounds” in this day and age…
